    One of the establishment press's rules about the Donald Trump era is apparently, "There shall be no puff pieces."The Washington Post's Simon Denyer unilaterally decided to extend this rule to Arabella Kushner, the President's young granddaughter, giving him free rein to tell readers that her wonderful singing for China's president wasn't really an unconditionally wonderful event — because, you see, she was "forced to perform."Previous examples of potential puff pieces which have turned into digs at Trump include at least the following: Two Time correspondents, invited to a dinner with the Trumps, observed that the President gets two scoops of ice...

Fiat Chrysler said on Monday that it had “not been approached by Great Wall in connection with the Jeep brand or any other matter relating to its business.” Any attempt to sell...

Her husband was said to have proposed a divorce earlier this year after the woman had been left bedridden by the traumatic medical operations....
  • BREAKING: Corrupt Chinese Billionaire Spy Wants to Buy Over One Billion Pounds of American Copper

    07/16/2017 4:35:31 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 39 replies
    Chinese intelligence-connected billionaire James Riady wants to purchase an enormous copper mine to corner the market for China despite being banned from the United States in 2001. The Chinese are colonizing Africa but rapidly running out of copper deposits to mine in stable areas. No matter where the project is, Chinese investors are coming for it, and as Chinas appetite dramatically outpaces its domestic supply and as Chinese investors chase after other countries resources, that includes America.

    Panda Express has reached a settlement agreement with the U.S. Justice Department to resolve an investigation into whether the restaurant discriminated against non-U.S. citizens when reverifying their permission to work.

Under the agreement, Panda Express will pay a civil penalty of $400,000 and establish a $200,000 back pay fund to compensate workers who lost employment due to the companys...

    BEIJING In China, it is legal to eat cats and dogs. Even so, ordinary people reacted with alarm this week as news broke of a Chinese man caught with 500 cats, crowded into tiny cages, which he intended to sell to restaurants. The man had used sparrows and caged birds to lure both stray cats and domestic ones in the city of Jiujiang in southern Jiangsu province, the 163.com and news.ifeng.com websites reported. Many of the cats were found in cages in the back of a small truck, some near death and mewing faintly in the heat, while others...
  • The curious rise of the white left as a Chinese internet insult

    06/08/2017 4:42:28 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 10 replies
    If you look at any thread about Trump, Islam or immigration on a Chinese social media platform these days, it’s impossible to avoid encountering the term baizuo (白左), or literally, the ‘white left’. It first emerged about two years ago, and yet has quickly become one of the most popular derogatory descriptions for Chinese netizens to discredit their opponents in online debates. *snip* Although the emphasis varies, baizuo is used generally to describe those who “only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment” and “have no sense of real problems in the real world”; they are...

I know the president was heartened by his discussions with President Xi [Jinping], he said, Weve seen China beginning to take some actions to bring pressure on North Korea, but there needs to be more.

    The big story everyone is chasing is whether President Trump is a Russian stooge. Wrong. Thats all a smoke screen. Trump is actually a Chinese agent. He is clearly out to make China great again. Just look at the facts. Trump took office promising to fix our trade imbalance with China, and whats the first thing he did? He threw away a U.S.-designed free-trade deal with 11 other Pacific nations a pact whose members make up 40 percent of global G.D.P. The Trans-Pacific Partnership was based largely on U.S. economic interests, benefiting our fastest-growing technologies and agribusinesses, and had...

Katharine Gun, 29, works at the Government Communications Headquarters, Britain's global surveillance centre. She was charged in November with breaching Britain's Official Secrets Act after an memo was leaked to the British newspaper The Observer. The newspaper reported...

    A satirical article about President Donald Trump covering the White House phones in tin foil gained traction on Chinese news sites, despite being entirely fictional. The Friday article in the New Yorker, "Trump Orders All White House Phones Covered in Tin Foil," was penned by humorist Andy Borowitz as part of his column, which offers satirical takes on real-world events. The New Yorker's Borowitz Report disclaimer -- "not the news" -- failed to dissuade Reference News, a paper published by China's state-run Xinhua news agency, from citing it in an article about Trump ordering aides Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway...
