Pentagon Releases Startling New Report About China. What They’re Up To Is Chilling

Published

The Pentagon just released a new report that has some significantly scary revelations attached to it that just might cause you to lose a wink or two of sleep at night. What are they up to?

Well, apparently they are training for bombing strikes against U.S. targets, all the while developing their nuclear capabilities. And here you thought Communism was no longer a big threat.

The revelations come in the Pentagon’s 2018 report to Congress on “Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China” which focuses on developments in 2017.

Overall, the report found that China wants to leverage its economic, diplomatic and strategic strength to “establish regional preeminence and expand the country’s international influence.”

Militarily, the report said the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been developing capabilities in “overwater bomber operating areas” and is “gaining experience in critical maritime regions and likely training for strikes against U.S. and allied targets.”

This is part of a broader commitment to strengthening the PLA so it can operate farther away from China.

The report also found that China is advancing “an ambitious agenda of military modernization and organizational reforms.” Part of that involves the PLA’s Air Force being reassigned a nuclear mission, which would “provide China with a nuclear ‘triad’ of delivery systems dispersed across land, sea, and air.”

What makes this all so alarming is that tensions between the United States and China have been ratcheting up ever since a trade war between the two nations has broken out. One of the measures the Trump administration is considering as a means to defend America from attacks from China and countries like them is the much maligned and mocked “Space Force.”

The reason for such consideration has a lot to do with China’s advancements in their space program, which means there’s a chance they could use vehicles in space for use with space-based assets.

At the end of the day, this is an extremely important and delicate issue, so hopefully the Trump administration will give this the attention it needs and will handle the matter as effectively as it did the situation with North Korea.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
