    There’s no way in hell they shouldn’t tell all’.. The FBI is closing the book on the agency’s “corrupt” handling of James “Whitey” Bulger — forever. The feds are refusing to make any further installments of Bulger’s case file public, saying the records are “investigative” and no longer subject to the Freedom of Information Act. “The records responsive to your request are law enforcement records; there is a pending or prospective law enforcement proceeding relevant to these responsive records, and release of the information could reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings. Therefore, your request is being administratively closed,”...
  • Nothing ‘gentlemanly’ in Chinese diplomacy

    The Pioneer ^ | Saturday, May 4, 2024 | Bhopinder Singh
    OPINION China’s recent outcry over the alleged breach of ‘Gentleman’s Agreement’ with the Philippines reveals a profound irony, given the history of its coercion and deceit There is a huge amount of insincerity and gall involved in the Chinese complaint that the Philippines had torn up the bilateral ‘Gentleman’s Agreement,’ between Beijing and Manila. While the term ‘Gentleman’s Agreement’ has an implicit assumption of ‘trust’ as a fundamental tenet besting a relationship, which may otherwise not be legally binding -- to even imagine that there has been any element of ‘trust’ between these two sparing countries, is to put oneself...

The outlet had earlier reported that Hamas politburo member Moussa Abu Marzuk was leading the delegation. Zakharova says that Iranian deputy foreign minister Ali Bagheri Kani is in Moscow as well.

    Harrowing video caught a staffer at the Israeli Embassy in Beijing being stabbed on a sidewalk Friday — the day that Hamas’ former leader called on all members of Islam to wage a “day of Jihad.” The 50-year-old staffer is seen being stabbed repeatedly by the male assailant after a brief struggle as he lies on a sidewalk, according to a video posted on social media and geolocated by Agence France-Presse to an area about a mile from the embassy. “An Israeli employee of the Israeli embassy in Beijing was attacked today,” the Israeli Foreign Ministry said in a statement....

    Congress has been warned to be on high alert for Chinese spies after a suspected Beijing espionage plot was uncovered in British parliament. Earlier this week, a parliamentary researcher with links to MPs with classified information was arrested for 'spying for China.' The suspect is thought to be linked to numerous Conservative members of Parliament - including Security Minister Tom Tugendhat and Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Alicia Kearns. According to reports, several of the members with links to the suspected spy are 'privy to classified or highly sensitive information', however none have been accused of wrongdoing. The suspect, who was...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Michigan community leads fightback against Chinese takeover of US agriculture as Beijing-backed companies now own $2bn of American farmland, with more acreage than Bill Gates (Gotion)

    A rural community in Michigan has hailed a 'huge victory' after a Chinese-owned industrial firm backed out of buying local farmland. Residents of the idyllic Green Charter Township, around 50 miles east of Lake Michigan, say they were 'bullied' into accepting the takeover, but refused to do so. Gotion, a company that 'pledges allegiance' to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), did, however, complete the purchase of 260 acres of derelict industrial land in the township and 10 acres of disused farmland last week. It comes as data shows Chinese firms now own more than $2billion worth of US farmland, up...

    HONG KONG — Chinese President Xi Jinping met with veteran U.S. diplomat Henry Kissinger in Beijing on Thursday, calling him an “old friend,” Chinese state media reported. Xi said the visit by Kissinger, who has been to China more than 100 times and recently turned 100, had special significance because of the two “hundreds.” Kissinger, who was Richard Nixon’s national security adviser, made a secret trip to China to 1971 that laid the groundwork for a historic trip by the president the following year and the formalization of relations between the United States and China in 1979. “It not only...

    Far-left American President Joe Biden is “desperately seeking talks with China on all fronts” to prevent an unforeseen controversy between Washington and Beijing from hurting his 2024 reelection bid, the Chinese state-run Global Times newspaper contended on Thursday. The Global Times cited Chinese Communist Party-approved “expert” opinions asserting that Biden is concerned that Republicans will be able to make the case that they would manage the relationship with America’s top geopolitical adversary more responsibly, especially after significant percentages of Americans expressed disapproval of Biden’s handling of an invading Chinese espionage balloon over the continental United States in early 2023.

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the White House claim to be pleased by his trip to Beijing: President Xi Jinping actually met with him and agreed to continue talking. Thing is, it seems China will only deign to keep talking as long as Washington keeps appeasing it with actual concessions. Blinken didn’t even get his central ask, restoring military-to-military communication channels that Beijing cut last year but the Bidenites paint as the best way to avoid stumbling into a war. (Indeed, the Chinese Communists still won’t even meet with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.) Crucially, Washington had to bribe Beijing...

  • Elon Musk tears up the decoupling script in China

    As the global economic intelligentsia debates how to “decouple” or “de-risk” from China, Elon Musk clearly didn’t get the memo. The Tesla founder was feted like a returning king in Beijing this week. From the moment his private jet arrived on Tuesday, Musk is reportedly being called “Brother Ma,” putting him in rarified league with Alibaba billionaire Jack Ma. There are many takeaways from Musk’s first China visit in three years. One is that not everyone is decoupling from China, least of all the globe’s most influential electric-vehicle (EV) evangelist and owner of Twitter. Another: the future of EV production...

    Twelve years ago in autumn, the Year of the Ox according to the traditional Chinese horoscope and a year after the massive 2008 financial crisis, then-US president Barack Obama went to Beijing to propose a megadeal to China. It was a pact about the environment that could include technology transfer from the US to China. The pact didn’t gain traction in China and was finally scuttled at the climate conference in Copenhagen that December. Last week, again in the Year of the Ox, US Special Envoy for Climate John Kerry went to Tianjin to broach the environmental issue with the...
