    Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) Young Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) goes from being a CIA analyst to a spy after he uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S.economy.

    – Well, they were only a couple years off and fingered the wrong culprit, but other than that it’s a real believable plot line, I reckon

    With SD posts talking about Wiener Laptop again, i checked duckduckgo to see how Huma and Anthony are doing. So, Anthony is now CEO of a company that manufactures countertops out of recycled glass called Icestone. They are evidently no longer a couple.

    Eric Prince had said that Huma and Anthony had flipped and were cooperating with investigators. But that was more than 3.5 years ago and they are just walking around town.

      Nope, why would they have to “flip” when they were protected every step of the way?

      The Wiener laptop “insurance against Arkanacide” worked — Anthony could have spent up to 15 years in jail under NY law, depending on severity of the underage pornography, and the rumors were bad. He ultimately spent 18 months in jail.

      Shamelessly copied from Wikipedia:

      “Under a plea agreement, he intended to plead guilty to a single charge of transferring obscene material to a minor. … At his sentencing hearing on September 25, 2017, presiding judge Denise Cote sentenced Weiner to 21 months in prison, beginning on November 6, 2017 with an additional three years of supervision following his prison term.

      On November 6, 2017, Weiner reported to Federal Medical Center, Devens in Ayer, Massachusetts to begin his 21-month sentence. After getting about three months deducted from his sentence for good behavior, Weiner was released from prison on February 17, 2019, and sent to a halfway house in Brooklyn, New York. Weiner was released from a Bronx halfway house on May 14, 2019”

      And that is the MASSIVE cheating and fraud being perpetrated as we sit by the DemoCriminal Party in states where the weaponization of mail-in ballots has been enhanced by extending the acceptance and counting periods AFTER November 3 and the express allowance of that outrage by corrupt and complicit federal judges who have rejected legal challenges.

      All this focus on the previous crimes by DemoCommunists pales in comparison to the vote fraud which is upon us and occurring with impunity. The Republicans appear to be toothless against it and without any apparent plan to beat it.

      I really hope I’m missing something major here and that Republicans are actively trying to beat this and have something effective “up their sleeves.”

    A long read for those interested in the Chinese economy and the risks.

    Here is the report👇

    The China Economic Risk Matrix

    Executive Summary
    As the global economy continues to struggle during the Covid-19 pandemic, China’s return to economic growth in the second quarter of 2020 was a rare positive surprise. Conventional wisdom credits China’s quick recovery to the distinct characteristics of China’s economy: a high degree of state control, directed flows of credit, and a high level of domestic policy credibility in responding to economic downturns.
    But those same elements have also pushed China’s financial system deep into a gauntlet of systemic financial risks. Throughout the past decade, China’s financial system has ballooned in size much faster than its real economy. Economic growth has been facilitated by the largest single-country credit expansion in over a century. Yet until the Covid-19 outbreak, China had not faced a rapid slowdown, nor a financial crisis.
    Despite rising inefficiency, China’s financial system has served as the shock absorber that has
    helped China’s economy recover from the virus outbreak and maintain growth. But as even Beijing acknowledges, a tree cannot grow to the sky, and the slow-motion credit risks now accelerating within China’s banking system are breaking through the calm surface of economic data. China’s financial system is highly vulnerable to the threats of falling property prices, defaults on loans and corporate bonds, tightening interbank market conditions, and capital outflows. But it is difficult to determine when these medium-term vulnerabilities will catalyze short-term financial stress and when that stress will become too severe for Beijing to handle.
    The answer in this report, drawing from a previous CSIS report, Credit and Credibility, is that China’s financial system becomes most vulnerable when Beijing’s credibility erodes and implicit guarantees on assets are suddenly questioned. In some cases, credibility weakens during attempts to reform China’s system, while other events may force Beijing to react to rising credit risks and defaults. Building on the earlier work, this report explores the specific conditions and markets in which changes in government credibility can have a significant impact on systemic stability in China.
    The opacity shrouding China’s outlook calls for more effective indicators of meaningful stress within China’s financial system, and the case for these tools—a China Economic Risk Matrix, similar to a threat matrix in security parlance—is detailed in Chapter 1. Most emerging economies that have seen similar credit expansions have faced crises or sharp economic retrenchment. It is more important than ever to develop new China-specific diagnostic instruments to assess why the same results have not occurred in China.

    Read this very interesting and excellent report here👇

      Theory: The Chinese Communist party developed and released the covid virus specifically to eliminate older and/or sicker Chinese people. In China. As a cost cutting measure. Once the virus escaped it’s borders, as they knew it would, they engaged in theater to make it appear far more deadly than it is. This was done to provoke a response in the western world that would be devestating to those countries economies. Like bonus points.

        TDS, if that’s the theory to eliminate the elderly in Chi-na, then why was it mostly in Wuhan and not through out all of Chi-na? According to our supposed experts, Chi-na kept the virus in Wuhan and then let it out to the world but not the rest of Chi-na.

        What social programs does China have for the elderly that would reduce costs to the state if the elderly population were reduced?

        Aren’t the elderly financially supported by family and many of the elderly continue to work into old age as long as they are healthy and able to do so?

      This discussion (starting at 1:50:00) doesn’t provide any comfort or reassurance at all that the election will be settled by January and be anything other than deliberate chaos.

      This appears to be an imminent and deliberately designed electoral catastrophe that could have been prevented by Republican legislation before they abdicated the House in 2018.

        Well said GB.

        Even a Trump landslide won’t necessarily prevent the chaos or long delays. It’s probable that every Dem candidate or most of them that lose and is close enough in votes to demand a recount, they will refuse to concede as Hillary ordered. The thousand Dem lawyers supposedly hired for this election will also try every other dirty delay tactic possible. They’ve had months to plan and prepare.

        The most disturbing point to me was how they could allegedly cancel out the state of Texas’ entire vote for example if they can drag out the final adjudicated result past the legal date that all electoral college votes must be counted according to the Constitution. Of course, this would require the co-operation of politically corrupted judges which is possible but hopefully not likely.

        The 2nd most disturbing point is if the court chaos continues and neither candidate is able to reach 270 and been declared the winner after the Constitutionally required electoral vote date has passed, the Speaker of the House takes over the WH.

        Let’s hope sanity and justice prevail instead.

    Good Morning Treepers,

    On a slightly lighter note than usual I know you are rightly furious at the partiality and outright lying by your media but had it ever occurred to you that other countries are even more crazy? In evidence I offer you this extract from the UK Guardian:-

    “Like many progressive foreigners who moved to the US, I have been amazed by the patriotism of the left in this country. Where most west European progressives abhor flag-waving and patriotism, let alone chauvinism, many American progressives proudly wrap themselves in the stars and stripes and attack Trump for not being patriotic enough. In a particularly bizarre twist, the 2016 election involved a uniquely US-critical far-right candidate defeating a proudly patriotic center-left candidate”

    MILLBURY — Two Virginia residents were arrested today after they were found walking on the railroad tracks near the executive airport with shovels, a pitchfork and a backpack with a gun and ammunition.

    The Lake Local Schools buildings were locked down for two and a half hours during the investigation, which involved the Secret Service and FBI, said Lake Township Police Chief Mark Hummer.

    John C. Davison, 38, and Vicki M. Davison, 33, both of Virginia Beach, were arrested.

    The Davisons were each charged with one count of making terrorist threats, a third-degree felony; one count of carrying a concealed weapons, a fourth-degree felony; one count of inducing panic, a first-degree misdemeanor; and one count of criminal trespassing, a fourth-degree misdemeanor.

      This report on a private meeting between Roberts and President elect Obama in Jan 2009 has been in the back of my mind all these years
      CBS News reported that Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John G. Roberts, Jr., would meet in private with impostor president elect, Barack Hussein Obama aka Barry Soetoro and so forth, on January 14, 2009:
      “At the invitation of Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., Mr. Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden will pay a protocol visit to the Supreme Court of the United States Wednesday afternoon, the office says….The visit is private; reporters and photographers will not be present.”

      To say I was floored when I read the news item is an understatement. A ‘ceremonial’ meeting between a president elect and justices of the Supreme Court is somewhat traditional. HOWEVER, in this instance, it’s flat out wrong. Chief Justice Roberts has cases on the docket where Obama is the defendant or is the subject of the litigation.

      On Wednesday, Roberts meets with the man at the heart of that case in private. Two days later, he sits down to discuss the case with the other justices after having a closed door meeting with the defendant!

      Does anyone see major conflict of interest here? How can Chief Justice Roberts meet with Obama behind closed doors under such circumstances?

    Why is Benny Gantz in Washington?

    Gantz has already spoken to Esper by phone following the reports that the UAE would seek to procure the F-35, so is it possible that the former chief of staff felt the need to speak to Esper face-to-face to stress the importance of Israel’s QME and demand a heavy compensation package in return?

    Israel’s Air Force is in dire need of upgrades and Gantz will likely discuss the various platforms that the IAF would like such as another F-35 squadron, F-15X fighter jets, KC-46 refuelers, Chinook or CH-53K and V-22 Osperys.

    While the defense establishment has been looking at these platforms for years, Gantz will likely demand that Washington move up the orders and add in additional long-range weaponry or radar systems that had not been on the table before.

      Every neighbor here was expecting the police to come. We called about a million times, and the police would not show up,” Kirim said.
      The police have acknowledged that the delay was unacceptable – however they cited a record number of retirements and fatigued officers who have been covering months of BLM protests.

      “This is not the service our community expects, nor is it what we want to provide,” said Deputy Police Chief Cris Davis.

      That said, 49 officers have retired and nine have resigned since July. According to Davis, other officers are injured or on vacation – leaving the bureau with around 310 officers on patrol divided between three precincts. 102 of those officers don’t have full training, Davis added.

      In this case, officers were simultaneously responding to a tactical call in East Precinct which required a special team, as well as monitoring a violent clash between protesters downtown and preparing for chaos that evening.

      Sounds like Portland needs to “reimagine policing”, and hire some of those Violence Intervention Facilitators to deal with these hostage situations. Don’t forget to bring your knife-proof vest.
