Posted in: Two Japanese mobile carriers postpone release of Huawei phones See in context

Currently, China is only bullying countries around their area and exploit areas outside the vision of the others. When they get to the top, that'll be a different story. You'll be happy if you have the ability to whine about them. The Chinese has a saying "if you want to pluck out the weeds, you have to pluck all the way to the roots." It's only reasonable that the US applies this first when they have the leverage.

The fact that Huawei fearlessly stands up to the US means they're backed by their government. The US has all the reasons to prevent China from taking the no. 1 spot. For quite a while, I thought the US should have done something about China's growth. If China has the upper hand, I doubt they would be merciful to the US. In this power struggle, I've chosen my side.

Posted in: DOJ: Trump campaign did not coordinate with Russia in 2016 See in context

This is just sad. After 2 years of scraping, they found nothing. It's a good thing people want it released or else Mueller will milk for another 2 years with no release. Everyone would still be thinking something is there. Of course the haters continue to hate regardless. Right now the anti-Trump party looks like fools who tried to bring him down with dirty tricks with no success. Don't tell me Trump will actually have a chance next election.

And if people want to talk about corruptions, I suggest that all politicians should be investigated.

I'm guessing it will flop for the simple reason of the big eyes. I'm ok with big eyes in anime, not like this. I can't see myself staring at those eyes for the whole movie. That would be torture.

What is the point of government shutdown as a threat when the government employees still get paid when not doing any work?

Posted in: Trump takes parting shot at Mattis and his view of U.S. allies See in context

Trump is a business man so he thinks about financial benefits. His general is in the business of fighting wars so he's more interested in control and power. (That speech about commitment with allies was kind of sweet if only it was true.) By getting out of Syria, the US is staying out from the fight for power and influence. Russia was the main force behind getting Syria back together but Turkey was specifically mentioned by Trump as the country he passed the baton. He wanted to get troops out so he used Turkey and whipped up some smooth talk. Turkey would make their moves and who knows how Russia and co will respond. Maybe the remaining parties already made an agreement among themselves. Maybe they'll be fighting amongst themselves for their bigger part of the pies. I entertain the possibility that once an external common enemy is gone, those who claimed to be allies with each other may turn against themselves for their own benefits. The US was always the external common enemy. Or maybe I was just watching too much dramas.

After watching a few of his movies, I gave up. His art is beautiful but his story telling is terrible.

Wow. It's surprising that he beats out those boys considering they're extremely popular. I kind of knew Putin is popular around the world but didn't think he's that popular in Japan. Omoshiroi.

The happiest person to see Trump go would be Mr. Putin. Trump is harder to deal with because he's unpredictable and he took all the attention away from Mr. Putin.

Posted in: Trump calls for end to Mueller probe despite Russian campaign bid findings See in context

The investigation is developing just as I thought. After 2 years of combing and scraping for Trump's dirty secrets, they only found so much so I'm surprised. Trump is cleaner than how they portrayed him.

Posted in: Macron makes U-turn on fuel-tax increases in face of protests See in context

People don't think about global warming when they can't make it to the end of the month. Looks like it won't stop anytime soon. Macron is too stubborn and treats his people like idiots. If he took a good look at himself, he would have a clue as to why the people had to resort to violence. Their vests look more neon than yellow. Maybe they should also bring their hard hat and steel toes boots.

I only really liked two shows, Gilligan's island and Whose line is it anyways. Colins and Ryan from the latter show never failed to crack me up with their skits. Those were the good ole days. I stopped watching TV for a while.

Posted in: Paris assesses injuries, damage after worst riot in decade See in context

Nobody wants to be caught in the violent protest but Macron is too stubborn and self absorbed so I guess if the French people want to be heard, they have to take desperate measures. I wonder if heads will roll. (No, not literally like the 1600s.)

I kind of hope the guardian would have a decent article on this and open for comments so I can see the POV from the Europeans and the French in particular. But there's not a lot of coverage.

Trump's threat right before G20 was to see if China would back down and make a deal. It's impossible to read Trump. Things can change the next day.

Posted in: G20 opens Argentina summit under shadow of China-U.S. tensions See in context

Applying my body language knowledge looking at the pic, it's clear that Abe and Macron are trying hard to get Trump's attention, as in "senpai notice me!" Meanwhile, Trump is perplexed because of the attention from these two fanboys. He's standing closer to Abe because he's cool with Abe. It's obvious he doesn't have any warm and fuzzy feeling for Macron. Can't blame him. Macron is a tad bit pushy and arrogant.

Xi's ambition. India and Japan have been waiting for a US president who share their POV on the matter. Trump is coming close and view is clearer than the president before him but who knows how far he will go. Hopefully, it's not one step forward two steps back.

Posted in: Manafort denies ever meeting with Wikileaks' Assange See in context

It's standard practice for quite some time to just publish stories with extremely vague information or ones with no basis or truth in them. This much ado about nothing of an investigation really is just a silly mind game between the others vs. Trump and another way to waste tax payers' money. The real suckers here are the tax payers. Mueller will have job security for a while.

Posted in: Trump proposes 'worldwide network' to counter CNN overseas See in context

This country is strange. There are two parties but all the news networks are pro-democrats and anti-republicans. Fox only decided change its bias to the opposite side just a number of years ago if I recall correctly hence receiving recognition of standing out from the crowds and gained a following from the other population. One vs. all is hardly fair coverage. And really there is no integrity or minimal moral standard in reporting anymore. It would be foolish to rely on any of them for real news.

Posted in: Mexico to boost security at border after migrants try to cross See in context

The media demonizes Trump then claim Trump demonizes the illegals. (Just saw some headlines from the Guardian.) Apparently, it's only ok when they demonize Trump. This will be interesting because the media will thoroughly cook up a good story of how pitiful the illegals are vs. how evil Trump is to gain sympathy in order to get back at Trump regardless of consequences. They've been extremely creative for a good number of years and the plots only get better. I think dramas plots are getting boring because all the good writers went to work for the media.
