His paranoia and delusions of persecution are eating him alive. And once impeachment hearings formally kick off, it’s only going to get worse.

As more and more evidence of his nefarious activities emerges and becomes public, he’s going to end up losing his shit on an almost hourly basis.

Meanwhile, China’s learning curve on the use of soft power is becoming increasingly impressive.

With Chinese President Xi Jinping set to arrive in Athens on Sunday, Greece will be keen to use the trip to its advantage while not upsetting its allies within the European Union or the United States, observers say.

Xi is set to meet Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis for the second time in a matter of days, after Mitsotakis visited Shanghai earlier in the week for the China International Import Expo. On that occasion Xi floated the possibility of Greece “becoming a logistics centre” for handling Chinese goods exported to Europe.

During his three-day trip, Xi is expected to visit Piraeus - the Mediterranean Sea port controlled by China’s state-owned Cosco - witness the opening of a new Bank of China branch in Athens, and visit historical sites such as the Acropolis.

scmp.com

This is how it’s done and if the Chinese can continue on this path of pursuing soft power and increasing their global reach and influence, it won’t be much longer until we see China emerge as a true global hegemon, much as the USA is (or was before Trump) today.

Anecdotally, I can tell you that the best-selling smartphones here in Czech Republic are Huawei and it’s derivatives (Honor, etc.) and Huawei is building the 5G network here, after having secured some very lucrative contracts, most notably with the Czech Ministry of Finance.

re: #8 Dr Lizardo

The real irony of all of this is that we will die, as a superpower, via the Russians but it remains the Chinese who will pick up the pieces because even with us gone, the Russians are too weak to do so.

But the Chinese are not.

The US would do well to start studying how the Vietnamese have held off the Chinese for as long as they have because that’s the only long term hope we have.

Yes, Vietnam could well serve as highly instructive. They’ve repeatedly rebuffed China over the centuries.

As for Russia, they’ll never return to being the global hegemon they once were; they may well re-emerge as a regional power, but their days of being a global superpower are over.

I finally found the guide to my smart thermostat that hasn’t connected to the internet for 10 years because I changed modems and forgot how to access the settings for the wifi. I really don’t need internet access it’s programmed for the time so I rarely ever touch it. (season changes as my body adjusts to heat or cold) I found it because I was going to clean the turtle filter and was looking for it’s manual. The filter was leaking so I had to get a new one and they no longer make that model, of course. I bought an Oase heated canister filter for $250 because I had to. I’m drinking tonight because I had to.

China may rise as a superpower, but they will not be the lone superpower. If not the US, then perhaps the EU will be the counterbalance to the authoritarianism that China offers the world. I also suspect that at some point, China’s economy will be strong enough that the economic prosperity will come into conflict with the government’s desire to control everything. And with over a quarter of the population still living under the poverty line, there’s always room for class warfare.

The EU is the hope of the western democracies right now.

Class war only works if a middle class exists; that was perhaps the most important mistake Marx made. He failed to understand that the poor can not risk everything. Only those with a bit to spare can make that ultimate gamble. That’s why the US revolution worked and, ultimately why both the French and Russian ones did not. Only those not on the knife’s edge can dare make a risk that tomorrow can be a little bit better.

China’s economic and political influence in the EU is growing by leaps and bounds. Hell, the Czech government is largely under the sway of Beijing, much to the dismay of a good many people here, but there’s precious little they can do as the largest political parties here…and the current incumbent Czech President….are all pretty much bought and paid for.

And the country’s wealthiest oligarch has just purchased the country’s largest private TV network - and that guy’s in China’s pocket hook, line and sinker.

China’s problem is that, ironically, as far as a superpower goes it has nothing to “sell”. The US has the American Dream, the USSR had the Revolution and International Communism, but China’s got “we bought off your leadership.”

The Chinese look at suitable countries that have corrupt governments, and pay them off while putting the local government into unsustainable debt. They move into a country, don’t interact with the population at all, and build stuff that benefits them and only them. The local population figures this out fairly quickly and gets pissed off. Then they get a bunch of Chinese nationalist flying monkeys yelling at them on Facebook.

I don’t want a world where the US is the only real power, because it’s not like Trump can’t happen again. The term in diplomatic circles is “Rules-Based International Order”, to which the EU, NATO, (some parts of the) UN, and other organizations are supposed to provide the framework.

Welcome to the future. As long as the German economy remains independent then there is a chance within the EU but the reality is that anyone wanting independence is fucked 16 ways into sunday.

Chinese style autocracy is our end game. Long term? Shit, once the Chinese get their hooks into us, the “long term” suddenly turns into millennium and we’re thinking in terms of when the mandate of heaven is lost. That only changes the names of the evil at the top, noting else.

In a Chinese system there is only sith, there is never jedi. Lawful Good/Evil vs all the rest because law is the ultimate over everything else.

Xi Jinping’s “The Governance of China” is a must-read, IMHO. It gives insight into what his long-term plans and goals are. It’s available online in .pdf format - the version I downloaded is the Third Edition, published in 2014 and I think there’s been a couple of subsequent revisions since then.

There’s at least three names on the list that Nunes sent to Schiff that would get approved, since all three have already testified in closed session and their testimony has bearing upon the subjects being investigated.

Well, Schiff has weighed in on at least one witness, saying that the WB will not be called and pretty much saying aloud that Nunes can take a hike on most of the rest of the list. The kick in the jimmies for Devin is having his own words from ‘17 (i.e. when he was leading the effort to undermine Mueller’s investigation) concerning the protection of sources read back to him as justification for not calling the WB.

re: #21 ericblair

China is definitely trying to create a “dream” to present to other nations…but it’s also just another neo-colonial operation where the dream is the sizzle and there is no steak only a debt trap, relying on opaque corrupt developing-world governments to bite.

As to the dream…well, I haven’t read Jinping’s missive, but there’s a bunch of messaging going on trying to embed notions. You’ve got the overseas schools pushing neoConfucian thought, the general promotion of Chinese cultural knowledge (TCM, soft martial arts) as a harmonious and salubrious collection of universal wisdom, the action films with very blunt messaging about China’s new role as the once-colonized people standing up for the still-kinda-colonizied people of Africa.

What gets hinky is that China’s trying to create its “dream” in a digital age with instant news sharing…and pardon my black metal album level of cynicism, but both the American Dream and the Soviet Dream (and for the matter the various Fascist Dreams, the British Empire Dream and colonialism in general) benefited tremendously from the limited information channels of their eras. They’re shooting for a collectivist optimism where everyone matters and no one gets so far ahead they can punch down freely (a good sell anywhere that’s post-colonial/developing), but everybody can see their internal messaging that’s ethno-nationalist *and* involves the party build a fucking panopticon to constantly ride citizen’s.

So the whole thing becomes this clusterfuck of multiple moving parts, in which they have to gamble, but the difficulty of the roll is determined by the level of desperation (and cynicism) of the nations they’re trying to gull.

Personally, I don’t think it’s going to be anyone’s century…at least not any nation’s. There is a trans-national oligarchy that’s several clusters of very powerful organizations people with goals that amount to “disrupt transparent, democratic systems and feed off the carcasses” but who each have a different vision for post-democracy. The ancaps and the theocrats and the monarchists and the narcissists with no visions beyond “more” all hate each other, but it’s to their mutual benefit to kneecap normal people that want civil and human rights. The ideologies are putatively different, but the inhumane (and ultimately hubristic) assumptions underneath are all the same: that little people don’t matter, the power justifies itself, that end justifies the means, and…most importantly, to my mind…that personal vision of what ought to be cannot be subjected to skepticism or criticism.

It’s still about one thing and one thing alone: Power.

Money is secondary and directly related because the power was purchased and the power continues to bring in more money.

Well, a large canary weighs about 1 oz, and a grand piano weighs about 1200 lbs, so the answer would be about 19,200 canaries x 5.5, so: 105,600 canaries.

Francis Chan is a former megachurch pastor who famously gave up his church in 2010 to do something different. This was supposedly ws to set up a church planting network in San Francisco but apparently turned into him flying from one set of conferences to another. Oh, and these aren’t evangelistic meetings, these are conferences for the already converted to rev them up some more.

Anyway, Chan has decided he’s going to drop all that to evangelize in Asia. Specifically, he’s going to live in Hong Kong and fly in to minister to the poor benighted souls of Myanmar.

This woman is having none of it. (21 tweets, all worth a read)

I personally can’t stop rolling my eyes over the sheer privilege. He can’t bring himself to live in Myanmar, but he’ll fly in to preach. Really? And, personally, I hope he gets embarrassed enough to drop this idea, because he’s toxic. It’s not merely that he’s anti-LGBTQ, which like all prominent Evangelicals, he is, but because his teachings are just horrible. He wrote a book called “Crazy Love,” which is basically a 224 page guilt trip to young people where he tells them they’re not living up to what God expects, which is basically to do crazy stuff like Jesus. Sitting in a church pew on Sunday isn’t crazy enough, in fact it makes you a lukewarm Christian. And anyone who has sat in a church pew for any stretch of time knows that Jesus spews the lukewarm out of his mouth (in Revelation, but of course nobody is thinking about the symbolism or the milieu in which the book was written in, it’s all literal thought).

Oh, and he’s on the board of “Gospel for Asia”, which recently settled out of court with American donors who sued because their donations were not being used as expected. GFA is refunding $37 million, the first checks went out, but gee, GFA wants you to sign the check back over to GFA. *rolls eyes*

Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas), a former CIA officer who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, on Sunday defended the whistleblower whose complaint helped spark the impeachment inquiry into President Trump even as he blasted Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) handling of the probe.

“I think we should be protecting the identity of the whistleblower… because how we treat this whistleblower will impact whistleblowers in the future,” Hurd told Fox’s Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” responding to Trump’s calls for the whistleblower to be outed.

“Having this whistleblower law on the books is important, it’s an important check and balance,” he added.

It’s based upon a piece of artwork I first saw in Portland, OR last year. Series of painting with various celebrities done as pets. Not sure what the official name is, but I call it “The Cat With No Name”. I have been using it as a avatar in other places, and eventually got a copy for a wall on the hallway where it shares space with the “Andy Warhol” drawings of Tuxedo Cat, Chat Noir, and Third Cat.

2. Fox News will be working overtime to poison the well of public opinion.

Of all the things I’ve seen and read so far, this really got me—she claims that she was treated for PTSD after the Charleston murders. Oh, but she felt bad about it because she knew the victims and their families had suffered more than her. Ya think, Nikki, you self-absorbed asshole? (If it ever really happened—as I’ve mentioned before, Nikki likes to insert herself as the star of every show.)

Murderers and rapists cannot sit in on the grand jury process, nor can their lawyers or advocates. They cannot call witnesses in their defense, question the prosecution’s witnesses, present their own evidence, or in any way attempt to influence the grand jury’s decision. They have no “right” to confront their accuser(s), nor any “right” to know their identities prior to the trial itself. And if they attempt to in any way hinder the prosecution’s ability to conduct that grand jury, such as withholding evidence or asserting that witnesses cannot testify, then they can face charges of obstructing justice.

Violating Trump’s right to “due process” would be the House Dems declaring they have no need for investigations or hearings, hammering out Articles of Impeachment from whatever they so chose, and forcing a vote on such in the shortest time possible. In the real world, we are only just now reaching the public hearing stage after over a month of closed hearings and committee subpoenas. And face at least another month, if not two, of such hearings and further fact-finding before the House will even begin working on putting articles to paper. Trump is receiving “due process” despite the best of efforts of himself and his cronies to stop such.

“Blacklisting” or as the wingnuts like to term is today “cancel culture” is the cry of those who have reached mediocrity or are fast approaching it. It’s the comic who’s still making Michael Jackson jokes over a decade after his death and thinking such are “edgy” or “controversial.” It’s the actor whose schtick has gotten so stale that he has to whine about his politics being the reason his show is canned and not because of falling ratings. Authors who excuse bad book sales or poor reception of their reveals by suggesting that critics can’t accept certain topics or discussions being had.

Like so many other such BS, it is wingnuts again trivializing the past by totally misusing a word. Chuck Woolery has not been banned by the FCC from ever appearing on another game show, it’s that the format is as outdated as he is. Dave Chappelle is not barred by the MPAA from appearing in films or comedy “specials,” he’s just a notorious prima donna who burned up a lot his chances to score gigs. And there are way too many wingnut books on store shelves to buy into the idea that they are in any way kept from reaching an audience.

That’s a good take, considering the reason he quit the show is because white frat boys were running around screaming “I’m Rick James, bitch!”, and completely missing the social commentary in his stuff.

Those same frat boys are all now 15 years out of college and probably the first one in line for his live shows. They’re also probably the same ones going “FUCK YEAH!” when Dave shits on trans people.

The problem with Chappelle really started with Chappelle’s Show for the simple reason that usually kills most comics careers: He basically became a victim of his own success. The guy who’d started out his career as a heckler and troll ended up being heckled and trolled wherever he went, such that he couldn’t go out in public with his family without a “fan” running up to scream things like “I’m Rick James, biyotch!” He wanted to be creative and witty, but all his audience wanted was for him to just keep playing the same characters over and over. Thing is, after you disappear to another continent in order to get away from all that, network producers and film directors stop offering you parts and so you’re left back where you started: Doing short comedy “specials” where they can edit out any bits where you flip out on the audience.

And then you have Louis CK who got the bright idea that mocking the Parkland survivors was comedy.

Congressional Repubs are scrambling for their careers, trying to find any excuse for the man’s behavior that the public might be willing to believe, and he’s demanding they all fall in line with him and refuse to budge. I suggest that we declare this particular hill he has chosen to die upon be dubbed “Little Big Horn: Part Deux.”

OMG, I was just coming here to complain about this! I read that article not more than 15 minutes ago, and now I want to punch something.

She pretty much is sucking up to Trump throughout the whole interview so his knuckle dragging caveman followers will support in 2024. She’s the walking definition of selling your morals for power.

Only one correction—she never had any morals.

O’Keefe is the Ed Wood of propagandists!

Hey now, that’s unfair to the late Mr. Wood, who at least tried to make movies for the art rather than to make some money. A better comparison might be Uwe Boll.

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas was one of the few beneficiaries of the Trump Foundation that actually got their money.

Was there a nuclear war during the 80s that I was unaware of? Because if so, then Fallout lied to me about what the post-apocalypse would be like.

I’ve said in the past that the flood of post-Trump “tell-all” books would feature authors who tried to insist that they were the “only sane one in the room,” but apparently I missed the ones like Nikki Haley will try to go for the wingnut welfare circuit by insisting that they were the “lone voice” speaking out against a “coup.”

Well I imagine she wants an early head start getting the people who still love Trump. Her political instincts weren’t that good to begin with that she thought serving Trump was a good resume builder.

And let’s not forget that Trump didn’t know her from a pile of apples. The only reason she got the UN job was so that his buddy, Foghorn Leghorn (Henry McMaster) could run for SC governor as an incumbent.

Trump will not resign. He will fight every step of the way to stay in power because he knows he will face prison when he is removed from office. Trump will more likely garner direct support from Oathkeepers and other creeps to maintain a security force under his direct control as Secret Service is removed. We are going to enter 100% banana republic territory before the Trump era ends.
