The first Chinese aircraft carrier has been officially undocked in the port city of Dalian as Chinese technology continues to grow.  The 50,000-ton carrier was developed and built solely by Chinese technology and Chinese hands. 

In recent weeks the president of the United States has been goading the North Korean government selling wolf tickets in southern Asia.   The new ship is part of China’s naval expansion as a part of beefing up its regional military influence coming online some say with their new found wealth. 

The upgrade is an underscore of China’s desire to become the most powerful country in the world, as the US spends time attacking third tier and fourth tier countries. 

Western allies are show concern of the expansion the Washington has been tight lipped.

Scribe:  Samuel Otis

Email:  samuel@thethinkering.com

 

The US Senate Intelligence Committee made a decision to investigate ties between presidential candidate Trump and Vladimir Putin.  Tim Mak of the Daily Beast reported his connections on the hill say there is not a single full time investigator assigned to the investigation, suggesting the interference with the 2016 US election has taken a low priority. 

There are seven part-time staffers working on the Senate inquiry and non are trained investigators and to date no one in Trump’s administration or election camp has been interviewed. 

It’s been more than three months since the committee announced a scope of investigation had been decided upon and still no serious move has been made to actually conduct a query.  The probe is moving at a snail’s pace, and does not have a single full-time investigator.

Trump delivers Bluff to Kim Jong Un

“We are sending an armada.  Very Powerful.”  The president of the United States said to Fox Business Channel’s Maria Bartiromo a week ago.  He continued, "We have submarines. Very powerful. Far more powerful than the aircraft carrier. That, I can tell you."

Trump is comfortable lying, now just one month ago he lied about the FBI director and Director of National Intelligence’s testimony about Russian involvement in the 2016 election.  Trump said, "The NSA and FBI tell Congress that Russia did not influence electoral process."

And here is what James Comey, Director of the FBI actually said, “They wanted to hurt our democracy, hurt her and help him,” Comey said. “Putin hated Secretary Clinton so much that the flip side of that coin was that he had a clear preference for the person running against the person he hated so much.”

Trump doing Big Business in China from the White House

Donald Trump the Crook

Scribe:  N. Tru Bass

Email:  ntb@thethinkering.com

 

Donald Trump has made clear he is above the law.  For years he has failed to pay contractors and settled race discrimination cases.  Now he is using tax payer dollars to travel to and fro, from one hotel or luxury to another, paying businesses that he owns.  Of the $7.1 he has already raised for his second run for the White house, the Federal Election Commission says he has spent $6.3 and the lion share going to businesses he currently owns.

The current president bragged as early as 2000 he could be the first presidential candidate to run and make money on it.  And he is doing just that by patronizing his own business, by having regular presidential visits.

U.S. missile strikes on Syria based on Syrian President Bashar Assad using deadly chemical weapons in northern Syria last week was rebutted immediately by Russian president Vladimir Putin and on Wednesday the Syrian state spoke out.

Assad himself denied ever launching a chemical attack saying the story coming from the Trump administration is, "Definitely, 100 percent for us, it's fabrication."  News organizations outside the United States is reporting his claims widely.  The head of state continued, "Our impression is that the West, mainly the United States, is hand-in-glove with the terrorists. They fabricated the whole story in order to have a pretext for the attack."

Two Ohio State Inmates salvaged parts from a computer recycling program at their prison in 2015 and for months was able to access pornography, information about how to make bombs and printing prison passes. 

While this happened two years ago the State released information about how the inmates hid the two computers in the ceiling or the Marion Correctional Institution.  The two men created unusual levels of internet activity on a contractors account—unfortunately for them the contractor was not working on one of the days the men decided to access the internet. 

The computers were put together by the inmates and hid above the ceiling tiles of a prison training room.

Trump stepping into a Trap with a Minority of American's Supporting

Strike Group 1

“We will hold the U.S. wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions,' the North Korean foreign ministry spokesman said, adding that Pyongyang would respond to 'provocateurs' with a 'powerful force of arms”.

In less than 100 days the Trump Administration has this kind of language coming from a country a fifth the size of the state of Texas.  Its equivalent to a high school senior fighting a fifth grader, no matter the outcome the fifth grader will not look bad. 

In a much less impressive fashion Donald Trump sent a tweet saying, “North Korea is looking for trouble.  If China decides to help, that would be great.  If not, we will solve the problem without them!  U.S.A.”
