Every scenario result was grim. In every case the U.S. lost at least two aircraft carriers as well as dozens of other ships, hundreds of aircraft, and thousands of military personnel. Japan’s loses would mirror the U.S. leaving the fighting forces of both obliterated.
The Chinese forces would be decimated just as badly and in each simulation Taiwan would retain its “independence.” However, the island would be shattered, left war torn, with a crashed economy, without electricity or reliable infrastructure, totally broken and still vulnerable.
The simulations interpret the U.S. and its allies stopping China from absorbing Taiwan politically as a victory, but is it?
The cost of the war preparations for Taiwan and our own military, combined with the cost of a prolonged war with another superpower and the rebuilding of our military forces would cripple the U.S. as a global power for an extended period of time.
Of course the cost of all of this falls squarely on the backs of American taxpayers.
If these simulations are correct, there will be no winners and no victory. There will only be death, chaos, and destruction. All of the countries will lose.
In the spirit of its theme “Cooperation in a Fragmented World,” the 5-day event will cover discussions about the global economy, the Ukraine conflict, controlling discourse online, climate change, and other tenets of the Great Reset agenda.

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (W.V.) was forced to walk back his complaint that free speech is a “problem” in America because official narratives are being challenged.
“The problem that we have is the open press system and basically all the platforms,” he said at Davos alongside other U.S. lawmakers, including Gov. Brian Kemp (R-Ga.), Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.).
A months-long Townhall investigation reveals disturbing new details about the affluent LGBTQ-activist couple accused of sodomizing their young adopted sons—now ages 9 and 11—and distributing "homemade" child pornography of the sexual abuse. Half a year after the shocking story made national news, Townhall is the only outlet following up on the criminal case in Georgia that has since seen zero headlines written about it. We've found that it's far, far worse than what was first reported.
Not only did the married men allegedly rape the two boys who were adopted through a Christian special-needs adoption agency, they were pimping out their children to nearby pedophiles in Atlanta-area suburbs, Townhall's follow-up investigation discovered.
Recorded jailhouse calls, a trove of never-before-seen court documents, and testimony from a family member who spoke exclusively with Townhall uncover the extent of the physical and emotional trauma the two elementary school-aged brothers endured as well as the red flags that the state overlooked during the same-sex couple's "faster than expected" adoption process.
On Monday, the White House Counsel’s Office tried to explain why visitor logs do not exist at the Delaware house since it was previously labeled as another work station for the president.
“Like every president in decades of modern history,” the office said. “His personal residence is personal.”
While the White House claims that the residence is a personal residence, Biden has previously held legislative meetings at the Wilmington home. The most notable meeting had involved Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.).
Concerns about the visitor log rose when two sets of classified documents were found at the Delaware residence, along with the knowledge of Hunter Biden residing at the house at the same time.
House Republicans this week proposed legislation aimed at protecting Mount Rushmore from being altered, renamed or demolished by activists who say the monument disrespects Native Americans.
The Mount Rushmore Protection Act would prohibit the use of federal funds to change, destroy or rename the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. The bill from Rep. Dusty Johnson, R-S.D., is a response to criticism that has grown since former President Trump visited the site in 2020.
"Our nation’s history is not without its flaws, but there is no doubt the faces on Mount Rushmore represent democracy, freedom and the great American experiment," Johnson said. "Removing or changing Mount Rushmore will not change the past and will not move us forward as a country. We must protect Mount Rushmore for generations to come."
The number of noticeable earthquakes has been increasing year after year since 2017 in the key oil producing regions of the U.S., according to an analysis by an independent energy research firm.
The analysis of seismic activity by Rystad Energy reveals that tremors of above the magnitude of 2 on the Richter scale quadrupled in 2020 and are on track to increase even further in frequency in 2021 if oil and gas activity sticks to its current drilling methods at the same pace.
The oil and gas industry is contributing to the increased seismic activity through its practice the saltwater disposal through underground injection, Rystad reports.
The research, which examined data from Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico, showed that earthquakes of above the given magnitude accumulated to a count of 242 in 2017, growing to 491 in 2018, 686 in 2019 and 938 in 2020. Around 570 such tremors have been recorded through the first five months of 2021, meaning we may see a new record this year if the trend continues.

Retail sales fell 1.1% in December, unadjusted for inflation, with consumers cutting back spending in almost all sectors except food, clothing and hobby stores, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau Wednesday.
AFP reports Danone said it would seek the cuts by 2030 using cow breeds that emit less methane, improving cow diets, prolonging their milking periods and capturing emissions from manure to be used for biogas, for example.
The company is also looking at innovative solutions to help reduce emissions including a cow mask that can trap burp gases, the report continues.
Webmaster addition: If the cow can breathe, then the mask cannot trap methane. Besides, most bovine methane comes from the other end of the cow!
As the House Judiciary Committee goes forward with its extensive calendar of hearings and investigations, the chairman issued a warning to Biden administration officials on Tuesday against continuing to obstruct Republican demands.
Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio warned that Republicans, who are now in charge, are ready to utilize subpoena powers to demand answers from the administration in a series of letters to top officials on Tuesday.
The letters were sent to the following people: Ron Klain, chief of staff for the White House; Merrick Garland, attorney general; Christopher Wray, director of the FBI; Alejandro Mayorkas, secretary of homeland security; Miguel Cardona, secretary of education; Steven Dettelbach, director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and Anne Milgram, administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration.
President Joe Biden’s home in Delaware has played host to many different guests over the years; now Republican lawmakers are trying to determine exactly who visited the Wilmington residence after multiple potentially classified documents were discovered on the property.
On Sunday, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) sent a letter to the Biden White House, requesting that he release the visitors logs for his residence from the start of Biden’s presidency onward. The Biden White House soon replied that it does not keep visitor logs for the personal residence.
Even without full visitor logs, publicly available information has indicated that a number of visitors have been to the Delaware property in recent years. For example, an October 2021 White House press release stated Biden hosted Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) at the property to discuss Biden’s political agenda.

It now appears that collusion is going on between President Joe Biden’s attorneys and the federal government.
According to a new report from CNN, federal investigators interviewed Biden’s attorneys but failed to use a 302 form to summarize what went on during the interview.
CNN sources have revealed that Patrick Moore, a lawyer who initially discovered classified materials while packing up an office for former think tank of Biden, was interviewed by a team led by U.S. Attorney John Lausch during the initial review of the President’s handling of documents. The report stated that the absence of a “302” form to document the interview highlights the informal nature of the inquiry at the time.
President Biden met with at least 14 of Hunter Biden’s business associates while he was vice president in the Obama White House, casting further doubt on the president’s repeated claims that he had no knowledge of his son’s foreign business dealings.
"I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings," Biden said in 2019.
But the president met with at least 14 of Hunter’s business associates from the U.S., Mexico, Ukraine, China and Kazakhstan over the course of his vice presidency, a Fox News Digital review found.
Two of Hunter’s Mexican business associates, Miguel Aleman Velasco and Miguel Aleman Magnani visited the West Wing on Feb. 26, 2014, according to the Obama White House visitor logs, and Joe was later photographed with Hunter giving Velasco and Magnani a tour of the White House Brady Press Briefing room.
