Let’s See What We Missed

A brief comment or two regarding a few stories we overlooked (i.e., happily ignored) during the Christmas holiday here in Limbo: A Texas public school teacher tried to sell her own eighth-grade female relative to a group of Moroccan men, posting photos of her online and promising the men that the girl was a virgin. Meanwhile, a popular YouTube channel aimed at children...

Chinese Puppy Owner Tugs Leash, Little “Tariff Man” Yips

Just yesterday, an idiot of world-historical proportions boasted about his “strong and personal relationship” with a bloodless tyrant, and how they were in the midst of working out a mutually advantageous trade deal. Today, however, the idiot is out there tweeting warnings about how he might have to impose new tariffs if the tyrant doesn’t play fair. Donald Trump, labelling himself “a Tariff...

Ugh!

President Trump met with all-powerful communist-tyrant-for-life whose portrait is replacing Jesus at churches and whose heartless regime has developed algorithms to monitor Chinese citizens’ internet behavior and punish people judged immoral (read “harmful to the Communist Party”) with summary disappearance or destitution by financial strangulation Xi Jinping in Argentina yesterday, to discuss trade and apparently other things. Here are the highlights of Trump’s...

Midweek Roundup, aka The Body Count

The Chinese government is now, if you will, more Chinese than ever, which means roughly a fifth of the world’s population (think about that fraction), and more than a quarter of the world’s digitized, high-tech population (think about that one too), now lives under a tyranny more ingeniously soul-suffocating than anything in Orwell’s wildest dreams. I have been mentioning for some time that...

China Today, The Rest of Us Tomorrow

I offer a brief, simple glimpse into your future, our future, the advanced world’s future — the near future. The Chinese president of Interpol — yes, the president of the famed international police agency is a member of the Chinese Communist Party — has officially “resigned, with immediate effect,” weeks after sending his wife an image of a knife on an Interpol phone,...

Kim Visits China to Report on How He Snookered the Orange Idiot

Kim Jong-un, fresh off his complete submission before the strategic, economic, and military might of…Xi Jinping, has arrived in China to “brief” Xi’s Communist Party inner circle about how he successfully manipulated the United States government into granting all of China’s wishes while somehow persuading themselves that this was a Make-America-Great-Again kind of victory. As Reuters reports: China has been particularly pleased by...

North Korea’s Reasoning

Both the U.S. and South Korea have confirmed that North Korea just test fired an intercontinental ballistic missile,  this one splashing into the Sea of Japan (which Koreans call the East Sea) after traveling higher than any of their previous tests, 2800 miles (4500km) into space. Does this suggest they are actively planning for a possible EMP strike against “someone”? And might this,...

Trump Saves Ford Jobs — for China

Here’s a great tidbit from The Right Scoop. The Ford plant that Trump and his Keystone Capitalists bravely prevented from making its own private business decision — er,  that is, from giving American jobs to Mexicans — has announced that those jobs will soon be moving to China. Brilliant example of Making Everyone Else Great Again, At Least By Comparison with the Most Incompetently Governed...

When Freedom is a Bowl of Rice

There are Chinese towns near the border with North Korea that send rice across the Yalu River in exchange for girls to marry. It makes sense. North Korea needs rice, because communist farming is a failure. China needs girls, after thirty years of sex-selective abortion and female infanticide. And this neat little arrangement in an obscure corner of the East holds an important...
