    An MSNBC writer said that former President Donald Trump’s policies toward Iran were more damaging to American credibility than President Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. In an article published Wednesday, Trita Parsi, executive vice president and co-founder of the Quincy Institute, said that by pulling out of the nuclear deal with Iran, Trump inflicted more damage to American credibility than the withdrawal from Afghanistan. “The Biden administration’s claim that America’s agreements only can be expected to last for the duration of the administration that signs them is to concede that Trump was not an aberration but the new norm and that going forward, this is how America will conduct itself,” Parsi said.

    A massive migrant caravan organized via QR code left the town of Huehuetán in the south of Mexico Monday morning on the third day of their long trek toward the U.S. southern border. The caravan, made up of mostly Central Americans, South Americans and Haitians, is the largest and most organized of its kind this year, with participants registering to join via QR code starting on Oct. 15. TENS OF THOUSANDS OF MIGRANTS GATHERING AT SOUTHERN BORDER AHEAD OF ‘REMAIN IN MEXICO RESTART' SOURCES SAY  "Tell Biden we are coming," one migrant named William from El Salvador told Fox News. Video footage captured by Fox News showed thousands of migrants, including small children being pushed in strollers, walking north about 20 miles north of Tapachula. One migrant carried a large wooden cross at the front of the caravan while others carried American flags and signs with President Biden’s name. "President Biden, we need your help," one migrant said. Unlike the caravans that made headlines in 2019, this one will take considerably longer. The Mexican government has banned truckers from letting migrants hitch...
    The US and China are set to head towards a nuclear showdown over Taiwan as both countries appear unlikely to reach a compromise over the island’s future, an expert warns. China has vowed to reunify the island and fears are growing that the US could be dragged into a future conflict involving Beijing and Taipei as wargames intensify. 5The US and China are set to head towards a nuclear showdown over Taiwan, an expert fears 5Taiwan is a 'key piece' in President Xi's 'rejuvenation' project as he tries to reverse 'China's history of colonialism'Credit: Alamy Ethan Paul, of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, told The Sun that Taiwan is the “key piece” in President Xi’s “rejuvenation” project and believes Beijing doesn't consider itself a “great power” unless unification isn’t achieved. He said: “China has this concept of rejuvenation. A large part of the idea is redeeming the history of colonialism in China – not only by Western powers but also by Japan. “If China cannot fulfill unification, then China is in fact not the great power that it seeks...
    Former State Department Spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus sat down with "Fox & Friends" and blasted President Biden and former President Obama for their handling of China. Biden pushed back on the assertion that he and Chinese President Xi Jinping were "old friends" at a press conference on Wednesday. MORGAN ORTAGUS: It would be admitting that he had a strategic miscalculation when it comes to China. Really up until five years ago, we were still talking about the war on terrorism, other things of significant importance on the international stage. But until President Trump really started hammering on the threat of the Chinese Communist Party, most of the world, most of the United States, both political parties were pretty asleep to that threat. So you saw in eight years under President Barack Obama and Vice President Biden, [a policy] that was very dovish towards China.  Their policy was to pivot towards Asia and acquiesce to the fact that China was inevitably going to rise and the United States was inevitably going to decline. We rejected that theory when we came into office....
    China’s National Bureau of Statistics published the results of its 2020 national census Tuesday, revealing one of the most modest population increases in the country’s history and prompting panic in Chinese government media that the nation would soon have the world’s lowest fertility rate. China’s Global Times, citing government-approved demographers, concluded that “the general declining trend was inevitable, and China’s population is likely to start to decline as early as 2022.” In April, following a delay in the publication of the full population report by the Communist Party, Western news outlets predicted the population had already begun to fall in 2020. Beijing denied this, claiming instead small population growth, though extensive evidence surfaced throughout 2020 that China may have been obscuring the true, and extremely high, number of deaths attributable to Chinese coronavirus since the pathogen first began infecting people in central Wuhan, Hubei province, in late 2019. Chinese state media had already referred to China’s birth rate as “alarming” prior to the publication of 2020 statistics. While the government publishes its birth rate annually, the census fully detailing the number of...
    MOSCOW (AP) — Russia’s top diplomat on Thursday described U.S. policy toward Moscow as “dumb” and warned that his country will retaliate if Washington imposes new sanctions. Asked about the prospect of new sanctions from Washington, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that all attempts to pressure Russia are bound to fail. He described U.S. policy on Russia as “deadlocked and even dumb,” emphasizing that past rounds of U.S. sanctions have failed to achieve their goals. “Such actions have taught us one thing: We need to rely on ourselves because the U.S. and its allies aren’t reliable partners,” Lavrov said on a visit to Kazakhstan, adding that “naturally, we will respond to any unfriendly steps.” Last month, Russia recalled its ambassador from Washington after U.S. President Joe Biden was asked in an interview if thought Russian President Vladimir Putin was a “killer” and replied, “I do.” In taking a tough stance on Russia, Biden has said the days of the U.S. “rolling over” to Putin are done — in contrast with the approach of former President Donald Trump, who frequently...
    (CNN)A black version of the Chinese flag swept across African Twitter earlier this month, as users replaced their avatars to express their anger at the government of China. They were outraged not only by widespread reports of coronavirus-related discrimination against Africans in China, but also by claims on Chinese state media that the allegations were "groundless rumors."Posting under the hashtag #BlackChina, Dennis Kiplomo, a nurse from Kenya, tweeted: "We expect the kind of hospitality we give to Chinese here in Africa, be reciprocated in their home country."Another user in Kenya, Peter Kariuk, wrote: "We need a united Africa which will not be slaves of #BlackChina." The truth behind the videos once again exposed the hidden agenda of cooking up the so called "discrimination on Africans in Guangzhou".https://t.co/poYYmhH2DN— Chinese Embassy in South Africa (@ChineseEmbSA) April 28, 2020 The southern Chinese city of Guangzhou has Asia's largest African population. While the exact number of Africans living in Guangzhou is unknown, in 2017 more than 320,000 Africans entered or left China through the city, according to state news agency Xinhua.Read MoreLast month, many...
    Readers of stock exchange forums point towards technology and energy companies Esports have gained a lot of ground last year due to lockdowns. You can invest directly in companies or in ETFs dedicated to the sector such as VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports. We continue with companies related to technology such as AliBaba, which is still in the sights of the Chinese government after its statements at the end of last year against the financial system of that country. Following the annual Plenary Session of the Asian Parliament, it has been decided to tighten the measures on technology companies in the fight against monopolistic practices. However, large investors remain within the company without any recommendation to sell. Fluidra continues to provide good news and after an interview with its CEO, Xavier Tintoré, the company shows the path set with the purchase of Custom Molded Products. On the negative side, Iberdrola continues to lose the approval of investors, although Jefferies still sees it covered. Meanwhile, it joins the project of the first battery factory for electric vehicles in our country...
    The report of an agency of the United States Congress on the sanctions against the Venezuelan government reflects that the institutions of power in Washington seek to agree on their position to most likely adopt a new policy on the matter, analysts point out. Miamimundo / VOA The non-partisan agency known as the United States Government Accountability Office, GAO for its acronym in English, determined that the sanctions imposed in the last four years on Madurismo “probably” aggravated the already accentuated economic crisis in Venezuela and hinder the operation of humanitarian associations in the country. His main recommendation to the Department of the Treasury was to systematically follow up on the requests made by telephone and email to its specific sanctions program and identify problems related to them. Luis Angarita, an expert in international economics at the Central University of Venezuela, valued the GAO report as unusual in terms of the review of US policies before the Madurista government and the national crisis. “They are taking the steps so that there is a consensus, already now internally. There is an...
    Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe argued on Monday that the Biden administration's approach to the Chinese government is flawed because it is "inconsistent" with what intelligence demands. After the Trump administration embraced a national security strategy of ramping up pressure on the Chinese Communist Party, Ratcliffe, fresh out of government, critiqued White House press secretary Jen Psaki saying President Biden will take a patient, rather than active, stance by forming an interagency review process and reaching out to Republicans, Democrats, and global allies about its China strategy. “I can just tell you that what Jen Psaki said is entirely inconsistent with what the intelligence shows. The intelligence doesn’t say we should have patience with respect to China, it says we should act with respect to China,” Ratcliffe said on Fox News. “The policies that were based on that intelligence in the Trump administration should be followed. I increased our spending on China from an intelligence collection standpoint in the intelligence community budget by 20% — that ought to increase even more going forward, and what I’m...
    A lobbying firm co-founded by Joe Biden’s incoming White House counselor registered earlier this year to lobby for a tech company seeking to improve trade relations with China.  Biden tapped Steve Ricchetti, a longtime lobbyist and Democratic operative, to serve as one of his top White House aides.  Ricchetti’s brother, Jeff, registered in August to lobby for Applied Materials on U.S.-China trade issues.  The Ricchetti brothers formed a lobbying firm together in 2001. A consulting firm co-founded by Joe Biden’s incoming White House counselor registered in August to lobby for a tech company regarding U.S. trade policy with China, which is likely to remain a hot-button issue in the Biden administration. Applied Materials, a California-based semiconductor materials manufacturer, hired Ricchetti Incorporated in August to lobby Congress on China-related matters, according to lobbying disclosure reports filed with Congress. Steve Ricchetti, the Biden adviser, and his brother, Jeff Ricchetti, founded Ricchetti Inc. in 2001. Jeff Ricchetti is listed as lobbyist for Applied Materials in the disclosures filed with Congress. The lobby shop took in $40,000 in the third quarter of...
    DUBAI (Reuters) - Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday the U.S. presidential election's result will not impact Tehran's policy towards Washington. "Our policy towards the United States is clearly set and does not change with the movement of individuals. It does not matter to us who comes and goes," Khamenei said in a speech carried live on state TV. (Reporting by Dubai newsroom; Editing by Andrew Heavens) Copyright 2020 Thomson Reuters.

    The Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, participated in an interview with NBC6, Telemundo 51’s sister network, in which he spoke of Venezuela and Cuba and part of what would be his policy towards these two countries, with a large community in the south of Florida. Regarding Venezuela, he pointed out that President Donald Trump’s policy has been failed and that it has served to consolidate the regime of Nicolás Maduro. He also announced that in his eventual government a Temporary Protected Status (TPS) would be approved for Venezuelans in the United States. Regarding Cuba, he pointed out that he would change the policy implemented by Trump towards the island. He said he would support the Cuban people and work to empower them so that they can choose their future for themselves. Similarly, he criticized the treatment that the current administration has given Cuban Americans and said, among other measures, that it would allow remittances to be sent to the island. Recently an opinion study revealed that 7 out of 10 Venezuelans with the right to...
