Immediate threat from North Korea, long-term challenge from China a worry: Top US military commander

Speaking at the Raisina Dialogue, Admiral Harris Jr. said - without taking names - that several countries in the Indo-Pacific region are detrimental to stability in the region. "There are nations, entities in Indo-Pacific region that are disrupting potential for prosperity, openness & inclusivity," he said. "As like-minded democratic nations, we are burdened by an immediate threat from North Korea, long-term challenge that China poses and terrorism is real in Indo Pacific region in 2018. Multilateralism is way ahead."

Olympic Détente Upends U.S. Strategy on North Korea

North and South Korea reached an agreement Wednesday for their athletes to march together under one flag at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics next month, a powerful gesture of reconciliation that further complicates President Trump’s strategy for dealing with the nuclear-armed regime of Kim Jong-un.

South Korea, the host of the games, said it hoped a partnership in sports could contribute to a political thaw after years of high tensions on the Korean Peninsula. It came even as the prospect of war over the North’s nuclear and ballistic missile tests has loomed large.

For the White House, however, the budding détente scrambles its strategy of pressuring the North, with sanctions and threats of military action, to give up its nuclear arsenal. This latest gesture of unity, the most dramatic in a decade, could add to fears in Washington that Pyongyang is making progress on a more far-reaching agenda.

Israeli military court refuses to release Ahed Tamimi

An Israeli military court has refused to release Ahed Tamimi, a 16-year-old girl.

In a hearing Wednesday, Israeli occupation authorities sought that Ahed and her mother Nariman Tamimi remain in detention for another 101 days, until the end of proceedings.

Ahed’s trial will begin on 31 January, the day she turns 17.

Israel’s military courts deny basic due process rights and notoriously have a near-100 percent conviction rate for Palestinians.

Legislator suspected wind industry behind tracking device

The state legislator who found a GPS tracker on his pickup suspects the wind industry is behind it.

Rep. Mark McBride spoke to a Moore police officer about his suspicions late Dec. 4 after finding the tracking device underneath his pickup.

"He advised me of the possibility of a wind farm corporation being connected to placing the GPS on his vehicle," Officer Francisco Franco wrote in a police information report.

The officer wrote McBride explained he "is in the process of writing legislation against wind farms which could influence wind farm corporations negatively."

Worst-case global warming scenarios not credible: study

Earth's surface will almost certainly not warm up four or five degrees Celsius by 2100, according to a study released Wednesday which, if correct, voids worst-case UN climate change predictions.

A revised calculation of how greenhouse gases drive up the planet's temperature reduces the range of possible end-of-century outcomes by more than half, researchers said in the report, published in the journal Nature.

"Our study all but rules out very low and very high climate sensitivities," said lead author Peter Cox, a professor at the University of Exeter.

How effectively the world slashes CO2 and methane emissions, improves energy efficiency, and develops technologies to remove CO2 from the air will determine whether climate change remains manageable or unleashes a maelstrom of human misery.

Apple to Repatriate Billions From Overseas After Tax Bill, Contribute $350B to U.S. Economy Over 5 Yrs

During the 2016 election, President Obama mocked the idea that Donald Trump had a "magic wand" which could bring jobs back to America.

It turns out Trump was right, though his "magic wand" is just common sense, pro-America, pro-growth economic policies.

"Apple said it expects to pay about $38 billion in taxes for the horde of cash it plans to bring back to the United States. This implies it will repatriate virtually all of its $250 billion in overseas cash," CNBC reports.

It's All Right Ma... I'm Only Bleeding!

Many thanks to Bob Dylan's great song of the same name. What rankles me is how so many of my friends, neighbors and acquaintances seem to accept how far down the rabbit hole our Amerikan society has fallen. We live under the broken umbrella of an empire that cares not to protect the overwhelming majority of us. We live under the auspices of a regime that spends half or our hard earned tax dollars on phony wars, illegal foreign occupations and excessive militarism at home. Yet, most of the lemmings I cohabit with are only concerned about tripe news on sexual scandals and other base events that have nothing to do with their health or financial well being. For every person who can profit from this insane stock market run up, there are a thousand times more folks who are lucky to afford the bare necessities of life. Many of us, even we who earn more than the median income level, still walk around with missing teeth, knees and necks in need of operative repair and so on.

We Amerikans have become like those serfs on the feudal manors, working hard and still bowing and scraping when the lord of the manor passes>>>

‘Very possible’ that N. Korea crisis can’t be resolved peacefully – Trump

It's “very possible” the standoff with North Korea might not be resolved peacefully, Donald Trump has said in an exclusive interview with Reuters, and he's not sure if the inter-Korean dialogue will lead to “anything meaningful.”

“I’d sit down, but I‘m not sure that sitting down will solve the problem,” Trump said.

“I am not sure that talks will lead to anything meaningful” since they have been going on for 25 years now.

The remarks come after Trump’s statement earlier in January, in which he said he is “absolutely” willing to talk on the phone to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un if certain conditions are met.

'If US is sidelined, 2 Koreas can work towards peace and stability'

The US is interfering with the ongoing Korean talks, which Seoul hopes will eventually lead to the denuclearization of the entire peninsula, security analyst Charles Shoebridge told RT.

The third session of inter-Korean talks in a week signalled a significant breakthrough in the frosty ties between the two Koreas. And while the thaw in relations was welcomed by Seoul, the recent rapprochement was greeted with skepticism by 20 foreign ministers of the so-called "Vancouver Group," which defended South Korea during the Korean War more than five decades ago.

The US is adamant that it will apply not only economic and diplomatic pressure, but also issue military threats to force N. Korea to disarm.>>>

A Novel of Machiavelli and the Borgias.

Sarah Dunant continues her narrative on the campaigns of the Borgia pope, Alexander VI, to carve out a family possession in Italy. Florence is hanging on to its Republican status, having booted out the Medici in 1494, while, elsewhere, old noble families are knocked aside by the mercenaries they had depended upon. One of them, Vitellozzo Vitelli, is driven by revenge for Florence’s execution of his brother, siding with and then double-crossing the pope’s eldest son, Cesare Borgia, the novel’s central character. Vitelli is garroted for his pains. The Borgias have little regard for the Italian nobles who dominate the peninsula. As outsiders, they can afford to be circumspect, playing the Italians at their own superficial game. Pius III, who briefly succeeded Alexander VI as pope in 1503, came from a bankrupt Sienese family, whose founder, Pius II, referred to the Medici rulers of Florence as ‘more cultured than merchants usually are’.

In one of the first high-profile attempts to block the FCC’s rollback of net neutrality rules through the courts, 22 state attorneys general have filed a lawsuit challenging the plan.

Led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, the petition asks a court to find that the FCC’s plan runs afoul of federal law.

“An open internet — and the free exchange of ideas it allows – is critical to our democratic process,” Schneiderman said in a statement announcing the suit. “The repeal of net neutrality would turn internet service providers into gatekeepers – allowing them to put profits over consumers while controlling what we see, what we do, and what we say online.”

WATCH: PRESIDENT TRUMP EXPLAINS WHY HE DOESN’T GET THE FLU SHOT

In a 2015 interview with Sirius XM’s Opie and Jim Norton, Donald Trump was asked if gets a flu shot. His response was informed by a common experience: after once getting the flu shot, he got more sick than ever, then vowed never to do it again.

In other words, many people get the flu after getting the flu shot. How they factor this reality into the statistics at the CDC is unknown, but in the worst flu season in recent memory, with half the people getting the shot, you have to wonder if the shot isn’t partly to blame for the high levels of sick people.

Pennsylvania Lawmaker Seeks to Inform Parents of Vaccine Dangers Before Immunization

Pennsylvania state legislature Senator ,Mike Folmer, is seeking support for a law that would require medical professionals to obtain informed consent from parents, which would require that they be told of potential risks associated with the ingredients of vaccines. Folmer says the present laws limit parental rights to refuse vaccines and violate the constitutional right of due process.

The Unhealthiest State in America Has the Best Vaccination Rate: Offit’s Orwellian Logic Fails to Connect the Dots

In a Daily Beast opinion piece on December 15, Paul Offit—one of the vaccine industry’s most strident ambassadors—puzzles over a seeming contradiction. How, Offit wonders, could the state of Mississippi, which has “the worst overall health in the nation,” have used standout “efficiency” to achieve over 99.4% vaccine coverage in kindergartners? Rather than seriously investigate this apparent enigma, Offit presents his ready-made answer and reveals his article’s true purpose. According to Paul Offit, Mississippi’s high vaccination rates are due to the state’s 1979 decision to make the government—rather than parents—the primary vaccine decision-maker for children.

With a risk premium for oil, the World Economic Forum worried by war

That added to concerns that U.S. President Donald Trump would scrap the multilateral nuclear deal that lets Iranian oil flow through European markets at a time when market analysts are looking at a narrowing gap between supply and demand.

In a message on the New Year, U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres issued a red alert instead of an appeal.
