    In a nasty, angry outburst with the parents of children slaughtered in Newtown, Connecticut in the courtroom, conspiracy theorist and far right-wing provocateur Alex Jones said he “legitimately” thought the massacre of 20 young children and six adults during the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting “might have been staged.” It was an ugly, vicious scene. Christopher Mattei, attorney for the Sandy Hook families, “raised his voice, turned and gestured toward the families packed into the front of the court room and told Jones, ‘You put targets on all their backs,'” the Hartford Courant reports. “Just like all the Iraqis that you liberals killed,” Jones responded. “You’re unbelievable. You switch on emotions on and off,” he accused, calling Mattei an ambulance chaser. “Why don’t you show a little respect?” Mattei replied. “Objection!” Jones’ attorney decried. “You have families in this courtroom here, that lost children, sisters, wives, moms…” Mattei told Jones.

    Top European CEOs are fearing a euro zone recession as a confluence of economic shocks continues to threaten the outlook for the bloc.Alex Kraus | Bloomberg | Getty Images LONDON — The CEOs of several European blue chip companies have told CNBC that they see a significant recession coming down the pike in Europe. The continent is particularly vulnerable to the fallout from the Russia-Ukraine war, associated economic sanctions and energy supply concerns, and economists have been downgrading growth forecasts for the euro zone in recent weeks. The euro zone faces concurrent economic shocks from the war in Ukraine and a surge in food and energy prices exacerbated by the conflict, along with a supply shock arising from China's zero-Covid policy. That has prompted concerns about "stagflation" — an environment of low economic growth and high inflation — and eventual recession. "For sure, we see a big recession in the making, but that's exactly what we see — it's in the making. There is still an overhanging demand because of the Covid crisis we just are about to leave," said...
    (CNN)Tens of millions of people are living under lockdown in China, as the country battles its worst Covid-19 outbreak since the early days of the pandemic.This outbreak has spread far faster than previous waves of less infectious variants, with daily cases skyrocketing from a few dozen in February to more than 5,100 on Tuesday -- the highest figure since the early 2020 outbreak in Wuhan. The number may sound low compared to other countries, but it is alarmingly high for a nation that has attempted to stamp out outbreaks and chains of transmission with a strict zero-Covid policy throughout the pandemic. A man walks across an empty road in Changchun, China, on March 14.As of Tuesday, cases have been reported in 21 provinces and municipalities nationwide, including the national capital Beijing, and other major cities like Shanghai and Shenzhen. The cases may still be in their thousands, but as of Tuesday 37 million people were in lockdown.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America Reports,” Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) said that he thinks the Olympics is going to be one of the “biggest intelligence-gathering gold mines” China could hope for and that “in many ways, we are at war, maybe a cyberwar” with China. Wenstrup said, “I’m glad to hear Christopher Wray as the FBI Director coming out and speaking to America. Hopefully, people understand the threat that China actually is. We’ve known this for several years, and they are getting more brazen, more egregious. They will hack. They’re involved in our universities. They steal our intellectual property. They try to engage with politicians. And the Olympics is just a stage for them to enhance in propaganda and also, I believe, it’s going to be one of their biggest intelligence-gathering gold mines that they could ever hope for on an international level. And that’s why we sent a letter to the Olympic Committee and it’s like, not only talk about perhaps telling people to bring a separate phone, a burner phone, we should be providing...
    High-rise apartment buildings at China Evergrande Group's under-construction Riverside Palace development in Taicang, Jiangsu province, China, on Friday, Sept. 24, 2021.Qilai Shen | Bloomberg | Getty Images Asian high-yield bonds have been a hot favorite among institutional investors for the last few years. Also known as junk bonds, they are non-investment grade debt securities that carry bigger default risks — and therefore, higher interest rates to compensate for them. One recent high-profile example was the debt crisis at China's Evergrande. Weighed under more than $300 billion of liabilities, the world's most indebted property developer is teetering on the brink of collapse. Fears of a broader contagion to the industry, and perhaps even the economy, triggered a global sell-off in September. Given the uncertainty of China's junk bond market, CNBC asked five strategists and portfolio managers: Would you advise investors to buy Asia high-yield bonds? To be clear, China real estate bonds form the bulk of Asia's junk bonds. As Evergrande's debt crisis unraveled, other Chinese real estate developers also started showing signs of strain – some missed interest payments, while...
    Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison (left) has issued an “open invitation” to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping. – / AFP LAustralia handled the cancellation of the submarine agreement with France in a vicious, brutal manner. The government of Prime Minister Scott Morrison behaved like an unfaithful husband who did not dare to leave his wife until he walked through the door with his suitcase one day. Ending a relationship is a horrible way, and the wife who knows he has been plotting for months still feels betrayed – leaving her for her best friend.! The way to separate does not explain the reason for separation. Since the Australian government mandated the construction of twelve diesel-electric submarines in France in 2016, the strategic environment and military needs of our country have changed dramatically. Two years ago, they would be ridiculed if anyone suggested that Australia buy nuclear-powered American submarines.

    Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Wednesday sounded off on COVID-19’s origins, which increasing evidence is pointing to a lab in Wuhan, China. In 2020, then-President Donald Trump floated the theory the virus came from the lab, but members of the left immediately shot him down. With more people, including opponents of Trump, admitting Trump’s theory is “plausible,” Meadows said on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” that there is now a “cover-up” to keep from having to hold China accountable for the outbreak. “Really, what we are is in a Biden cover-up mode because they aren’t going to hold China accountable,” Meadows emphasized. “Martha, Bill, when you are covering this topic, you are one of the few people willing to do it. Mainstream media and other outlets now are starting to say that it is plausible, but, you know, the headlines almost a year ago when the president was talking about this, the Washington Post came out and said, oh, it was debunked. Now, they are having to change that.” He continued, “I can tell you there is...
    Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told "America Newsroom" on Wednesday that the media and scientist community are not going to hold President Biden accountable for dismissing the coronavirus origin theory from the onset of the pandemic. Moreover, Meadows argues that the president won't hold China accountable, either.  WAPO COLUMNIST ROASTS MEDIA ON COVID-19 LAB THEORY ABOUT-FACE: ‘ZERO SELF AWARENESS' MARK MEADOWS: Well, really what we are is in a Biden cover-up mode. They aren’t going to hold China accountable. Martha and Bill, when you are covering this topic, you are one of the few people willing to do it.  ... Mainstream media and other outlets now are starting to say that it is plausible… "Washington Post" came out and said ‘oh, it was debunked.’ Now they have to change that. I can tell you there is always a rush between some in the media to assume that the president was not right. And I can tell you President Trump was right when he said that people were spying on his campaign. ... And he is right again; we...
    Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) called on Team USA to not participate in the upcoming 2022 Beijing Olympics, given China’s behavior on the international stage during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “Spicer & Co.” The Tennessee Republican lawmaker proposed an “alternative Olympic Games” if needed, which would include nations willing to stand up against the Asian superpower. “I do not think Team USA should be a part of those Olympics,” she said. “If we have to have and plan and execute the alternative Olympic Games for countries that stand against human rights violations and the genocide that is happening in China, people that stand against the great power competition, the Belt and Road Initiative and the debt diplomacy that China is carrying out — countries that stand against rob, replicate and replace, stealing intellectual property of our innovations, making it at a cheaper, lower price then replacing these companies in the consumer supply lines, in our critical supply lines — we should all come together and do something to show China we are not going to aid them in their push...
    Explosive emails from a group of top-level scientists and Government doctors in the United States reveal one suggested Covid-19 could have originated from human activities rather than arising naturally from animals. Another asked if it might have been deliberately engineered. The documents also show that a key letter sent early in the pandemic from America’s top scientists to the White House had a line deleted that suggested the virus could have been ‘an unintentional release from a laboratory’. These revelations come as evidence of China’s cover-up grows, alongside fears the World Health Organisation, widely criticised for its failure to challenge Beijing at the start of the pandemic, is letting the regime dictate its inquiry into the origins. The WHO has allowed China to vet scientists taking part in the probe, while also appointing to its ten-strong team the British charity chief Peter Daszak whose funding for research on bat viruses in a high-security Wuhan laboratory was stopped on safety grounds. The documents also show that a key letter sent early in the pandemic from America’s top scientists to the...
    A surrogate for a couple living in China has been taking care of the baby for nearly a half a year because COVID-19 travel restrictions have prevented the parents from coming to the U.S. to take custody of their child.   Emily Chrislip, 25, from Nampa, Idaho, gave birth to the couple's daughter at a Boise hospital on May 18, right in the middle of the pandemic. She and husband Brandon, who have a son of their own, agreed to care for the child for four weeks, but it's now been over four months.   'At first, we thought it would be a max four weeks, and then it kept getting longer and longer,' she told People. 'At this point, we've just accepted that we don't know... but we wouldn't have it any other way. She is so loved and right now, we are the constant in her life.'

    Hong Kong (CNN)Two nuclear-armed powers, both run by nationalist governments at a time of economic tension, are once again squaring off along their shared border. Is this a recipe for disaster? Earlier this week, China accused Indian troops of illegally trespassing on Chinese territory in the Himalayas, months after the two countries engaged in their bloodiest clash in more than four decades. That incident, which left dozens of soldiers dead, had been followed by calls for calm and deescalation, but negotiations between Indian and Chinese officials went nowhere, and things are once again heating up along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the de facto border between the two countries. Speaking Tuesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said: "the Indian side has severely undermined China's territorial sovereignty, breached bilateral agreements and important consensus, and damaged peace and tranquility in the border areas, which runs counter to the recent efforts made by both sides for deescalation of tensions on the ground."For its part, New Delhi has accused Beijing of being the aggressor, and such is the nature of the hotly-disputed...
    "The Story" host Martha MacCallum pressed Defense Secretary Mike Pompeo on whether rapidly increasing tensions with China have led the two world powers into a Cold War, similar to the U.S.-Soviet relationship in the 20th century. MacCallum asked Pompeo about the federal government's closure of a Chinese Consulate in Houston -- which followed a fire in the building during which people were burning paper in what appeared to be trash cans, according to witnesses and police. Multiple intelligence sources told Fox News Thursday that one major reason the consulate closed, as opposed to other Chinese diplomatic outposts, was because the CCP was carrying out threats and intimidation tactics targeting U.S. energy firms in the South China Sea. In return, the Chinese government claimed the U.S.-ordered closure is a provocation that violates international law, according to the Associated Press. Video"The Consul in Houston says they said they do not have plans to leave that consulate right now, what is your response to that?" MacCallum first asked. "Everyone knows the rules for diplomats, you're only permitted to be there in a diplomatic status with the consent of the host nation. So, I'm confident,...
    By Poppy McPherson and Karen Lema (Reuters) - Tensions between the United States and China over the South China Sea have erupted into a war of words on social media, in what analysts see as a change in U.S. strategy amid a burgeoning superpower rivalry in Southeast Asia. After Washington last week hardened its position by explicitly rejecting Chinese maritime claims in the South China Sea, U.S. embassies in the region produced an unprecedented flurry of op-eds and statements criticising Beijing's actions. China's response was fiery, accusing Washington of "defaming China with untrue words so as to mislead the public" in the region. "We are a battleground now," Renato de Castro, an analyst with the Albert Del Rosario Institute for Strategic and International Relations in the Philippines, told Reuters by phone. "It will be a long game." A week ago, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Beijing's claim to about 90% of the potentially energy-rich South China Sea "completely unlawful" and accused Beijing of seeking a "maritime empire". U.S embassies in Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and Cambodia followed up...
    You are probably reading this from your phone. Or your tablet. And surely you don’t realize that you have before you a crucial tool in the new global geopolitical battle. “There are numerous reasons why a country could veto Huawei from its networks, but increasing cybersecurity is not really a big factor,” wrote Marcus Willett, former deputy director of the British eavesdropping center GCHQ, a member of the UK secret services. United, and currently senior advisor to the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) in cybernetics and other technologies as a lever of national power. Here he explains how and why. Without a doubt, there is a global competition between superpowers at the center of what is happening. I think Huawei has been caught in the front line of combat. Ironically, I think that the United Kingdom has also been at the forefront of that global competition between the US and China for control of digital technology. Because both nations know that to be a superpower in the 21st century you have to be a digital superpower. The opportunity that...
    The World Health Organization said on Tuesday July 7 that it is closely monitoring the development of cases of bubonic plague in China. A rather “well managed” situation In recent days, cases of bubonic plague have been reported in China. For its part,WHO wanted to make it known that she is following this situation closely. At a press conference in Geneva on Tuesday, an Organization spokesperson, Margaret Harris, made statements about the situation. According to her, for now, the’WHO does not consider it to be a “high risk”, but does pay close attention to it in partnership with the Chinese and Mongolian authorities.
