Posted in: Xi heads to Europe to defend Russia alliance See in context

Xi is getting vacation travel while he can. He could end up like Putin and never be allowed again.

It would seem more likely that he was a member of the crew. Anyway, the article is poorly researched. Not enough information provided.

Yes. I had to search the page for "crew" to see if it was in the article or if someone had put it in the comments already. Crew members are usually from "developing world" countries and the visa for their passports are much more restricted than tourist visas.

Posted in: Facing Republican revolt, House Speaker Johnson pushes ahead on U.S. aid for Ukraine, allies See in context

There are enough votes to pass the Senate version if he just allows the full House to vote. It would also anger the former president, for reasons that appear to be to appease Putin.

Posted in: Judge warns Trump over juror intimidation; 7 jurors picked for trial See in context

The social media posts read in court mocked Trump. He had to listen to those for hours on Tuesday, and probably again on Thursday. Nobody mocks him in his presence. He cannot sit still for it.

Posted in: Trump breaks silence on Navalny; casts no blame on Putin See in context

The former guy will not likely ever spend any more time in jail than he already has. Conviction? Most likely. But not amy more incarceration than he had to do when he surrendered.

Posted in: NATO leader says Trump puts allies at risk by saying Russia can 'do whatever the hell they want’ See in context

He keeps saying that NATO memers are "delinquent" in "payments." He knows there is nobody collecting dues from NATO members. That was explained to him by General John Kelly, his Chief of Staff when he was Presidnet of the United States.

So is it his memory? No. He is speaking to Putin.

Why is Tucker Calrson not asking to interview Lukashenko? What is he afraid of?

Posted in: 12 bitten in dog attack in Gunma; 5 taken to hospital See in context

Is the Shikoku a Good Family Dog? Shikoku can be great dogs for experienced, adult-only owners, but they are not suitable for homes with young children or other pets in most cases. This breed has protective tendencies and may become aggressive if not provided with consistent, knowledgeable training.

Posted in: U.S. to keep supporting Ukraine if Trump returns to power: Pompeo See in context

Mr. Trump was impeached the first time over this issue. If he were to take office again he would likely face a Congress that would impeach him over this issue again.

I don't expect to see him in office again, but he is using surrogates in the current Congress to disrupt aid to Ukraine now. That will not be possible in January, if not sooner.

Posted in: Trump wins primary in New Hampshire; repeatedly insults Haley See in context

This election decides the nominee from the Republican party to run in the general election. The party chair and senior members have already endorsed one person instead of waiting for the voters to decide.

Posted in: Zelenskyy calls Trump's rhetoric about Ukraine's war with Russia 'very dangerous' See in context

Mr. Trump has to worry about defending himself in court. His plate is too full to solve anyone else's prolbems anytime in the next several years.

 insulting that the dog gets an honorary visa

Of course, animals do not get visas. "Novelty" might describe it better than "honorary," because it doesn't have any significance for the dog.

Their maps wouldn't show "disputed" territory, so maybe their charts don't either. The commanders should know, though.

How long can he stay as a visitor without a visa? And if he is doing his business as some sort of entertainer in Japan, does he need a work visa?

Posted in: Amazon cuts hundreds of jobs at Twitch, Prime Video and MGM See in context

Search results:

Twitch has grown to 2000 employees...

Amazon employs approximately 1,541,000 full-time and part-time employees....

2,000 is one 0.01 percent of 1,541,000.

There should be a way to do this through attrition. Jobs at computer terminals can be done outside the brick and mortar of an office building with a sign on it. Their managers are going to be supervising them using computers anyway, regardless of where it is done. It is madness for a company that big to not find a way to manage their employees in a less painful manner.

Posted in: DeSantis and Haley jockey for second without Trump at Iowa GOP debate See in context

The sixty-four dollar question is who will he choose as his running mate...

In practice the party knows who the nominee will be before their convention and the presumptive nominee selects a running mate before the event. It evolved that way and there is no law requiring it. If anyone in USA history were to break with tradition and not share a line on a ballot, this would be the one. He certainly won't share a debate stage with any of them.

Posted in: DeSantis and Haley jockey for second without Trump at Iowa GOP debate See in context

The former guy isn't forgiving, so I doubt that either of them have a shot at being his running mate. Haley would be a pragmatic choice, but that is not how the former guy operates. They are both careful about what they say when talking about the former, and that is for survival, not coattails.

Posted in: White House will review Defense Secretary Austin's lack of disclosure on his hospital stay See in context

The Pentagon still has not said what procedure Austin had on Dec. 22 that eventually put him in such pain that he was taken by ambulance to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on New Year's Day and put into intensive care.

Maye it is none of our business, but I would like to know what it was in case anyone I know ever has the same thing.
