  • EXCLUSIVE: State Department Prepares To Announce Worldwide Racial Equity Chief, Leaked Email Shows

    06/08/2022 6:34:32 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 27 replies
    The position of Special Representative was first announced by the State Department in its April Equity Action Plan. The position’s holder has not been named, but the Special Representative will have wide-reaching powers, since he or she will be responsible for “institutionaliz[ing] an enterprise-wide approach to integrating racial and ethnic equity.” The email names “advancing equity, addressing systemic racism, and strengthening democracy worldwide” as “national security imperatives and core tenets of President Biden’s foreign policy.” Although the Special Representative will be responsible for “promoting systems of inclusion that mitigate bias, discrimination, and violence” and “fostering more inclusive societies,” previous U.S....

    According to The Washington Post report, citing Western officials, China is constructing a naval base for its military in Cambodia, with both Beijing and Phnom Penh going to great lengths to conceal the operation. According to a Western official speaking on condition of anonymity, the facility, which will occupy a portion of Cambodia’s Ream Naval Base on the Gulf of Thailand, will be only China’s second foreign outpost after the opening of a base in the East African nation of Djibouti in 2017. The base is said to be located west of the South China Sea, where Beijing has territorial...

    When will the guerilla war against Russian occupation start? Will the Ukrainian Govt retreat to Lviv? Will Russia invade western Ukraine too? Two weeks since Russia invaded Ukraine, and still no ‘decapitation’ of the Ukrainian government, no city captured except Kherson (which no non-Ukrainian had ever heard of before the war), and maybe 2,000 military dead on each side. It’s not exactly a stalemate, since the Russians have more tanks, more artillery and more air power, and they have not yet used them as aggressively as they might. So, we can use this (relative) pause in the fighting to examine...

    Failure to repay a loan taken from China in 2015 to improve the Entebbe Airport resulted in the Chinese government taking possession of the country and its entire population. Ugandan Finance Minister Matia Kasaija admitted he had not thoroughly examined the terms of the loan documentation and apologized "for the hardships that will befall our people. As I now read the terms, our people are now the chattel property of the Chinese government and will be shipped as replacement workers for Uyghurs who succumb to the harsh conditions in China's solar panel factories. Perhaps it is somewhat consoling that the...

    ROME (AP) — Leaders of the world’s biggest economies on Saturday endorsed a global minimum tax on corporations as part of an agreement on new international tax rules, a step toward building more fairness amid skyrocketing revenues of some multinational businesses. The move by the Group of 20 summit in Rome was hailed by U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet L. Yellen as benefiting American businesses and workers. G-20 finance ministers in July had already agreed on a 15% minimum tax. Its formal endorsement at the summit Saturday in Rome of the world’s economic powerhouses was widely expected. Yellen predicted in a...

    The US military, specifically its leadership, has not had a good year. While the bungled, deadly evacuation from Afghanistan was the clearest sign of incompetence yet, that disaster followed decades of failure and corruption. Instead of admitting there’s a problem and improving, the US military has been busy prosecuting soldiers for speaking out.By contrast, the Chinese communists are eating our lunch by building the world’s largest navy, advancing next-generation technologies, and promoting unity and strength among their rank and file. The latest example of their advancement has left US officials dumbfounded, after the Chinese military launched a nuclear-capable hypersonic glider...

    China launched a new hypersonic nuclear-capable missile that circled the entire globe at low-orbit in August, the Financial Times reported. US Intelligence and US Military officials were left stunned. “We have no idea how they did this,” a source told the Financial Times.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping yesterday warned that relations between Beijing and Taipei were “grim”, urging the island’s main opposition party to help seek “unification of the country.” China views Taiwan as part of its territory and vows to retake it one day, by force if necessary. Xi has become the most bellicose leader since Mao Zedong, describing the seizure of the island as “inevitable.” In a congratulatory letter to Eric Chu — the newly elected leader of the Beijing-friendly Kuomintang (KMT) party — Xi said the Chinese Communist Party and the KMT should collaborate under a “shared political basis.” “In...

    In March, Joe Biden announced that Kamala Harris was going "to lead our efforts with Mexico and the Northern Triangle" to stem illegal "migration to our southern border". Why? According to Biden, "she’s the most qualified person to do it." This confused everyone including the White House, Kamala Harris, and even the media which spent the next few months clarifying exactly what her job was and how she was going to do it. Anonymous officials told CNN that afterward, "Harris' aides appeared to 'panic'". At their joint press conference, Kamala Harris dubiously claimed that "we can chew gum and walk...

    The top of Darwin's Arch, the famous natural stone archway in the northern Galapagos Islands, has crashed into the waves, according to news reports. The arch, located less than 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) off the steep and rocky coast of Darwin Island, collapsed as "a consequence of natural erosion," on May 17, the Ecuador Ministry of Environment and Water wrote in Spanish on Twitter. The natural arch was named for the English biologist Charles Darwin, who studied evolution in the Galapagos during his voyage aboard the HMS Beagle in the early 1830s. Now that the arch's top is gone, one...

    MOSCOW—Two Russian warships transited the Bosphorus en route to the Black Sea on Saturday and 15 smaller vessels completed a transfer to the sea as Moscow beefs up its naval presence at a time of tense relations with the West and Ukraine. The reinforcement coincides with a huge build-up of Russian troops near Ukraine, something Moscow calls a temporary defensive exercise, and follows an escalation in fighting in eastern Ukraine between Russian-backed separatists and Ukrainian government forces.

    video posted to TikTok has apparently captured a radio exchange between Taiwanese and Chinese warships, with the latter asserting "Taiwan is part of China" and "has no navy." The rarely heard conversation played out on the maritime distress frequency 156.8 MHz, according to the island's radio scanner listeners. The footage dated March 21 was captured by a Chinese merchant sailor and shared online nine days later. In the 30-second video, Republic of China Navy warship ROCS Chi Kuang (PFG2-1105) can be heard hailing Shuozhou (610), a surface vessel with the People's Liberation Army Navy's East Sea Fleet, which operates in...

    Concerns are mounting from bipartisan US lawmakers and Afghan women's rights activists that the hard-won gains for women and civil society in Afghanistan could be lost if the United States makes a precipitous withdrawal from the country. President Joe Biden has suggested it will be difficult to meet the May 1 deadline for US troops to leave the country as dictated in the deal the Trump administration signed with the Taliban. However, there are fears that if the US withdraws troops before the conditions on the ground are right -- regardless of the date on the calendar -- there will...

    In signing an executive order to fund abortions overseas, President Biden chose to disregard the wishes of the African people.resident Joe Biden likes to present himself as an advocate for racial justice and a man of the people, especially those whose voices are often under-represented. Yet his actions routinely contradict his lofty rhetoric. A recent example is how he has ignored African people’s plea not to fund abortions on their continent. One of the more than two dozen executive orders President Biden signed recently revokes the so-called “Mexico City Policy.” The policy, first implemented by President Reagan in 1984, requires...
