Beijing braces itself for record breaking cold

Beijing could be set to experience record breaking cold this week, with temperatures set to drop to their lowest November levels since modern records began, reports China News Service.

Northern China's coldest November temperatures on record were minus 12.3 degrees Celsius on November 30, 1970. That record could be broken however with Sunday recorded as Beijing's coldest day in over 1,000 days.

After blizzard conditions on November 22, Beijing had temporary snow again on Tuesday, leading to frozen roads and cold weather warning announcements from authorities.

Peak daytime temperatures in Beijing this week are likely to stay under zero degrees, according to weather forecasts. Meteorologists have estimated that temperatures on November 26 and 27 will hit minus 12 degrees and possibly lower.

Iranian Supreme Leader Sends Crucial Message to World Audience on Terrorism

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei released an important message to the world youth on global terrorism, including the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
Here is the full text of the letter:
In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

To the Youth in Western Countries,
Today, there are very few people who are uninformed about the role of the United States of America in creating, nurturing and arming al-Qaeda, the Taliban and their inauspicious successors. Besides this direct support, the overt and well-known supporters of takfiri terrorism- despite having the most backward political systems- are standing arrayed as allies of the west while the most pioneering, brightest and most dynamic democrats in the region are suppressed mercilessly.
The other side of these contradictory policies is seen in supporting the state terrorism of Israel.

Meet the man who funds ISIS: the son of Turkey’s President, Bilal Erdogan

The son of Turkey’s president (and thus, the father) is the silent mastermind who has been responsible for converting millions of barrels of Syrian Oil into hundreds of millions of dollars of Islamic State revenue.

Russia’s Sergey Lavrov is not one foreign minister known to mince his words.

Just earlier today, 24 hours after a Russian plane was brought down by the country whose president three years ago said “a short-term border violation can never be a pretext for an attack”, had this to say:

“We have serious doubts this was an unintended incident and believe this is a planned provocation” by Turkey.

But even that was tame compared to what Lavrov said to his Turkish counterparty Mevlut Cavusoglu earlier today during a phone call between the two (Lavrov who was supposed to travel to Turkey has since canceled such plans).

Russia adds yuan as currency reserve

The Central Bank of Russia has included the Chinese yuan in its reserve currency basket, TASS reports. The move is expected to boost the yuan’s presence in the Russian financial market.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One could almost sense this coming, after the US renewed economic sanctions against Russia, completely out of spite.

A Feast of Scandal – Justin Raimondo

We’re grateful for and to Patrick J. Fitzgerald, whose existence proves that the old America yet lives.

We have a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving

I’m thankful for so many things this Thanksgiving that it’s going to take me an entire column just to adequately describe them. Indeed, I’m already so loaded down with gifts that I don’t need Christmas. My cup runneth over! For an old libertarian “isolationist” like me this holiday season is a bountiful time, one that yields so much that it seems like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and my birthday all rolled into one. Take a gander at this wonderful cornucopia of plenty:

An Invisible US Hand Leading to War? Turkey’s Downing of a Russian Jet was an Act of Madness

It is all terribly dangerous and it is hard to predict where things will lead.

This outrageous shootdown of a Russian plane that was in no way posing a threat to Turkey or Turkish forces, will not end here, because Russia and President Putin cannot allow Turkey and NATO to so blatantly act against Russia and its pilots and go unpunished, particularly as it is Russia that is acting legally in Syria, while the US, Turkey and other nations backing rebel forces there are in all acting blatant violation of international law.

Unless saner heads start prevailing in Washington, this could all quickly spiral into the kind of situation in 1914, where a lot of ill-conceived treaties led to a minor incident in the Balkans turning inexorably into World War I.

China to Unleash Killer Robot Army to Fight Terrorism

By Nicholas West

This warnings are abundant about the rise of "killer robots;" they have spawned an unresolved dialogue at the United Nations, and even the U.S. military is seeking ways to create moral, ethical robots. Such dialogue and warnings might give one the perception that killer robots are not already here. Wrong, they are...

Is Turkey Starting a Proxi-War for NATO?

It is clear, Turkey hosting the recent G20 meeting and subscribing to the east-west ‘coalition’ of fighting the ISIS / DAESH / Al Qaeda terror, was a loosely disguised farce.

Did Turkey just provoke a proxi-war on behalf of NATO against Russia? – Turkey knew very well that the Russian SU-24 fighter jet was inside Syria’s borders and that even as it may have been close to Turkey it was no threat for Turkey. Russia’s mission was clear to all the 19 nations which attended the G20 meeting some 10 days ago in Antalya, Turkey, when the entire group unanimously decided to cooperate in fighting the Islamic State (IS – or Daesh, according to its Arabic acronym).

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet

It is only a matter of time before the rhetorical shell game conducted by the terrorist sponsors comes unstuck.

Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian fighter jet this week was likely aimed at a bigger political target – to deal a blow to the proposal of a grand anti-terror coalition between the West and Russia for fighting the Islamic State extremist network in Syria.

Such a coalition might seem reasonable, even desirable, to most people. But it is profoundly unacceptable, tacitly, to Washington because it would further expose the criminal nature of the Western-sponsored regime-change operation in Syria.

Washington and its allies do not want Russia to participate in an effective military coalition that would accelerate the destruction of the mercenary terror army that the Western powers have covertly invested in. In that regard, French President Francois Hollande seems to have momentarily lost the devious plot by proposing such an alliance with Russia.

Manufacturing a phony caliphate

Carefully-orchestrated snuff films directed by media experts.

Image is the most important element of the vaunted but fictional “new caliphate”. This thing is largely smoke and mirrors: manufacturing a phony “caliphate” out of nothing but a misfit band of thugs collected from many disparate countries—all wearing matching black outfits and masks (so that you can’t identify ethnicity), driving identical shiny Toyota trucks by the hundreds, flying identical mass-produced flags and sporting slick logos—supplied by whom?

The Chinese Figure Russia Could Shoot Down a Turkish Jet in Retaliation

“Ankara must be well aware of what it means to shoot down a Russian warplane,” states the editorial. “Next it will be careful enough not to give Russia a chance to down one of its warplanes in retaliation. Moscow probably has to cross the Syrian-Turkish border to implement retaliation, which however risks escalating military confrontation.” “If Russia strikes down a Turkish warplane in Turkish airspace, or strikes a Turkish air base, it will touch NATO’s nerve. If NATO takes no action, its pledge to protect smaller alliance members will be discredited. However, if NATO adopts substantial action toward Russia, Europe will confront an unprecedented turbulent situation not seen since World War II.” The piece argues that the crisis is even riskier than when Vladimir Putin was considering whether to annex Crimea, because Putin’s “personal prestige” and Moscow’s “tough image” is on the line.

China Is Setting up Its First Military Base in Africa

China is increasingly making her presence felt in a continent that was previously the exclusive preserve of her former colonial powers and the US. Beijing has signed a ten-year leasing agreement with Djibouti to build a logistical hub in that nation, which is located in the Horn of Africa. “They are going to build a base in Djibouti, so that will be their first military location in Africa,” U.S. Army Gen. David Rodriguez, commander of U.S. Africa Command, recently told defense reporters according to The Hill’s Kristina Wong. It was only a matter of time before China set up overseas bases in the region. Beijing has enormous economic interests in the region that it needs to protect...

Russia-China Relations and the Downing of Russia’s Jet Fighter by Turkey

The downing of a Russian jet fighter over Syria’s airspace was undertaken by Turkey in consultation with Washington and Brussels. Turkey did not take this decision without getting the greenlight from the Pentagon.

Is this an act of revenge against Russia for bombing the US-sponsored Islamic State in Syria?

The unspoken truth is that Russia is undermining US-NATO’s ground operations inside Syria. The latter are made up of various Al Qaeda affiliated formations which de facto constitute the foot-soldiers of the Western alliance. These ISIS and Al Nusrah rebel forces are in turn led by intelligence operatives and Western special forces, many of whom are deployed by private mercenary companies on contract to US-NATO.

The downing of Russia’s plane by Turkey is a clear act of provocation. What is its broader intent?

How will backlash at the diplomatic level? Is military escalation contemplated by Washington?

Russia-China Relations and the Downing of Russia’s Jet Fighter by Turkey

What position will China take when the issue of Turkey’s downing of Russia’s war plane over Syria is brought to the UN Security Council?

The position taken by China could be decisive in preventing a process of military escalation.

Escalation would consist in an enlarged US-NATO-Israel led war against the broader Middle East-Central Asian region, extending from North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean to China’s Xinjiang-Uighur Western frontier with Afghanistan and Pakistan.

China says US guilty of "political provocation" in South China Sea

China said on Sunday that the United States (US) was making political provocations with its patrols in the disputed South China Sea, as tensions around the strategic waterways mount.

China will continue to construct military facilities on artificial islands it is building, Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin told a news conference in Kuala Lumpur. The facilities are needed to protect the islands, he said.

Washington was testing Beijing with its insistence on "freedom of navigation" in the strategic waterway, he said.

Oil May Plunge to $20, Signalling Economic Disaster: “The Numbers Are Dreadful And Unprecedented”

Dramatic overproduction of oil has become a major tool of geopolitical conflict and a harbinger of impending economic doom.

The world is running out of storage facilities for surging supplies of oil and may soon exhaust tanker space offshore, raising the chances of a violent plunge in crude prices over coming weeks, experts have warned.

Goldman Sachs told clients that the increasing glut of oil on the global market […] could send prices plummeting to $20 a barrel, the so-called ‘cash cost’ that forces drillers to abandon production.

China’s Foreign Ministry confirms reports on murder of Chinese citizen by IS terrorists

The Chinese Foreign Ministry has confirmed on Thursday that Chinese national Fan Jinghui had been kidnapped and murdered by militants of the Islamic State. The Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted on its website: "The Chinese government strongly condemns this inhuman action and will definitely hold the perpetrators accountable." Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei noted that Beijing "had made all-out effort" to rescue the hostage. Islamic State earlier said that it had killed a Norwegian and a Chinese citizen whom it held hostage. Prior to that, terrorists claimed that they were allegedly ready to liberate the captives for a ransom.

FEAR SPREADS AS CHINA’S FINANCE FIRMS FACE ARRESTS

The arrests or investigations targeting the finance industry in the aftermath of China’s summer market crash have intensified in recent weeks, creating a climate of fear among China’s finance firms and chilling their investment strategies. At least 16 people have been arrested, are being investigated or have been taken away from their job duties to assist authorities, according to statements and announcements compiled by Bloomberg News.

The authorities’ goal is to root out practices such as insider trading as part of China’s anti-corruption campaign, and a desire by "some in the political leadership to find scapegoats to blame" for the market crash, according to Barry Naughton, a professor of Chinese economy at the University of California in San Diego.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This does not augur well for the immediate future of the Chinese economy.

Putin to receive vice chairman of China Central Military Commission

Russian President Vladimir Putin will receive on Tuesday Vice Chairman of the Central Military Commission of China Xu Qiliang, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. Colonel General Xu Qiliang is also in charge of issues of China’s military and military-technical cooperation with Russia. In November 2014, he discussed these issues with Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu during the Russian defence minister’s visit to Beijing. Then the Chinese Central Military Commission vice chairman said that "the strategic partnership between China and Russia has entered a new stage of development, which is gratifying." He expressed the view that the development of this partnership "reflects the common desire of our peoples and plays an important role in maintaining regional and global peace." "Sino-Russian relations have a strategic importance," Xu Qiliang said.

Yuan to grab the title of IMF world reserve currency

Now the world's second largest economy will add its currency to the elite SDR basket. Until recently, it was believed that the yuan was controlled too tightly to be included on the list of world reserve currencies. Nevertheless, the yuan will be formally accepted into the elite circle of "Special Drawing Rights" - the basket of IMF currencies - at the end of the month. This is an important milestone for China, and the Celestial Empire is close to obtaining global economic power. IMF chief Christine Lagarde said that the yuan now meets the requirements for a freely usable currency. The yuan will thus join the company of the yen, the dollar, the pound and the euro.

US provocations at sea toughen China up

Pentagon announced on Thursday that two US B-52 bombers flew near the Nansha Islands in the South China Sea on November 8 and 9. The planes did not fly within 12 nautical miles near China's islands, though they received warnings from Chinese ground controllers, according to the US military.

This is a renewed provocation. However, compared with the recent patrol of US warship on waters 12 nautical miles near China's Zhubi Reef, the overflight this time appears less confrontational. The announcement of the flight came after it happened, which is a toned-down gesture compared with the prior announcement of the warship patrol.

The continued harassment indicates the US is attempting to keep the heat on the South China Sea. With the assistance of the Philippines, the US will continue to push the South China Sea into the agenda of international gatherings, giving China a hard time.

Putin to speak at UN climate change summit in Paris, France says

Wonder how the latest false flag will affect this upcoming meeting in Paris with ALL the worlds biggie politicos in attendance....maybe.

By: Sylvie Corbet The Associated Press, Published on Sun Nov 08 2015

LE BOURGET, FRANCE — Canada's new environment minister was in Paris Sunday taking part in talks to lay the groundwork for this month's UN global climate change summit, which will be attended by more than 100 world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, France’s foreign minister said.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said that Putin has accepted an invitation to attend the conference in Paris. He will be among the speakers on the conference’s first day, along with U.S. President Barack Obama and the leaders of India and China.

The Kremlin hasn’t confirmed Putin’s participation at the so-called COP 21 talks, which aim to reach the most ambitious accord to date limiting emissions that cause global warming.

Carson on China in Syria: ‘My Sources Are Better’ Than Obama Admin

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said on Friday that his “sources are better” than those of the Obama administration when it comes to whether China is involved in the Syria conflict.

Carson has claimed, based on his sources, that Chinese forces are operating in Syria. Asked on Thursday whether that is true, White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice said the U.S. has no evidence or intelligence suggesting that the Chinese are involved in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were China in Syria, the obvious question is whether they are there at the request of the Syrian government.

Chinese Scientists Unveil New Stealth Material Breakthrough

A group of scientists from China may have created a stealth material that could make future fighter jets very difficult to detect by some of today’s most cutting-edge anti-stealth radar.

The researchers developed a new material they say can defeat microwave radar at ultrahigh frequencies, or UHF. Such material is usually too thick to be applied to aircraft like fighter jets, but this new material is thin enough for military aircraft, ships, and other equipment.

Today’s synthetic aperture radar use arrays of antennas directing microwave energy to essentially see through clouds and fog and provide an approximate sense of the object’s size, the so-called radar cross section. With radar absorbent material not all of the signal bounces back to the receiver. A plane can look like a bird.

“Our proposed absorber is almost ten times thinner than conventional ones,” said Wenhua Xu, one of the team members from China’s Huazhong University of Science and Technology, in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will certainly be a game changer in terms of weapons and defense; but even though the research is published, I wonder, in terms of actual development, how long it will take for the US military to embrace some version of this technology?!?

Amnesty International accuses China of torture disregarding Guantanamo

International human rights organization Amnesty International accused China of practicing brutal torture. AI researchers published a report that said that Chinese security forces still use electric batons and chairs during the torture of suspects or perpetrators. According to The Guardian, the information was obtained by human rights activists as a result of interviews with 40 Chinese lawyers. The report also said that beatings and other methods of physical and psychological violence is also used against detainees in China. Noteworthy, the Chinese leadership adopted legislation to limit the use of torture in the country, although Amnesty International found the law "unconvincing". Meanwhile, experts from many countries of the world have repeatedly tried to draw attention of the international community, including the UN, to facts of torture behind the walls of the US prison at Guantanamo Bay.
