China’s smog police held captive
during checks on polluting factory

South China Morning Post [Hong Kong], by Mimi Lau

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 4/17/2017 12:25:19 AM

A team of inspectors from China’s environmental protection agency was held against their will for over an hour while they were carrying out pollution checks at a factory. The case reflects the difficulties inspectors face as they attempt to tackle the nation’s chronic air pollution. The inspectors were carrying out checks at Lujie Energy-saving Technology Co in Jinan in Shandong province, the ministry said in a statement. The team found the factory was still using a coal-powered boiler that should have been demolished as well as other problems in tackling emissions. The factory owner became angry, refused to supply documents and locked the factory

Perhaps US companies can employ this new Chinese technique when dealing with EPA inspectors. Just sayin´.

China has a real, life-threatening problem with air pollution levels. Its not nessecarily the intrusion the EPA pulls even if it is the Chinese Communists doing it. The factory owner is owt of line. Considering what that government does to its citizens convicted of economic crimes, the owner has a lot of nerve.

Porn-obsessed JournoLister cranks

The left is really scraping bottom in its serial attacks on Dr. Sebastian Gorka. Gorka, if you have not seen him on Fox News or at other outlets, is President Trump´s counterterrorism advisor. He´s an effective spokesman for the administration and has an interesting role: He´s kind of the Sean Spicer for nerds and intelligent members of the public, not the person who issues sound bites and takes ´gotcha´ questions from a hostile press pool. But it´s his very effectiveness that makes him subject to a kitchen sink of personal and professional attacks, most of which have the fingerprints of an embittered

The green eyeshades economics crew at Investor´s Business Daily has taken a look at a new IBD/TIPP poll and found a pattern based on time patterns seen earlier. What did it find? President Trump could be in for some winning – so much winning that he might get tired of winning. The poll shows that while President Trump´s overall poll approval is now low at 37%, economic optimism as he cures the economy and growth returns is up. The superimposition of the charts on one another shows that when the economy goes up, the president´s polls do, too. There´s a fairly good

It´s been more than seven months since Election Day, but Americans´ opinions of Hillary Clinton remain the same. A new Gallup poll finds just 41 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the former presidential candidate, with 57 percent expressing an unfavorable view. It´s the same split that Gallup found in December 2016. Gallup said that historically, losing presidential candidates have gained popularity after the election. Meantime, "Outnumbered" pointed out that the DNC raised $4.3 million last month, far below the $10.8 million brought in by the RNC. It was the lowest May total for Democrats since 2003 and

‘Meanness at the core:’ Obama
jumps back into political
fray to slam Trump, GOP on health care
Washington Post, by David Nakamura    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 6/23/2017 1:50:23     Post Reply
The text of the Senate’s 142-page Obamacare repeal bill had been public for just a few hours Thursday when the nation’s most influential private citizen weighed in — Barack Obama. The plan is “not a health care bill,” Obama declared in a 939-word message to his nearly 53 million followers on Facebook. “It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America.” The 44th president did not mention his successor, Donald Trump, but his scathing criticism and urgent tone — imploring his supporters to speak out against the “fundamental meanness at the core of this

Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban has slammed the French president over what he terms inappropriate conduct after Emmanuel Macron criticized Eastern Europe for a ‘lack of solidarity’ and ‘cynicism’ in dealing with the refugee crisis. Macron’s first public appearance at official EU level was “not very encouraging,” Orban told journalists on the sidelines of the EU leaders summit that started Thursday in Brussels. The Hungarian prime minister went on to say that the French leader “thought that the best form of friendship [between the EU states] was to kick the Central European countries,” adding, “it is not the norm here.” He also

The staff of the Wall Street Journal’s Washington bureau was reeling Wednesday from the disclosure that the paper’s widely respected chief foreign affairs correspondent, Jay Solomon, was abruptly fired earlier in the day after the Associated Press reported that he had committed an incomprehensible breach of journalistic ethics—getting entangled in a secret business arrangement with a shadowy Iranian-born arms dealer who the AP described as “one of [Solomon’s] key sources.” “People here are just stunned. It’s just so bizarre,” said one of Solomon’s Wall Street Journal colleagues, who spoke to The Daily Beast on condition of not being further identified. “I

Is there any better way to classify the nonstop brouhaha in Washington about President Trump´s supposed collusion with the Russians in 2016 than to call it for the chimera it is? Thank goodness one of them in Congress has done it, then. Rep. Devin Nunes of California characterized the idiocy just as it should have been from the start by warning the politicos to "stop chasing Russian ghosts around the closet." It´s a heckuva welcome reality check, given all the flapdoodle going on in the Beltway. This calls to mind two things: that Nunes is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and that

Wielding a bamboo knife he had made out of a fruit crate, he accosted a 59-year-old woman along Hillview Road, saying: “This is a robbery, give me your watch!” The woman´s Rolex watch, worth S$3,200, had caught his attention. But before he could take it, Sim fled the scene, startled by a loud clap of thunder as the victim shouted for help. For attempted robbery, Sim, 36, was on Monday (Jun 19) sentenced to 30 months’ jail and six strokes of the

CARDIFF: A 47-year-old father of four, Darren Osborne, was named in the British press as the man arrested on suspicion of ploughing a van on Monday (Jun 19) into a group of Muslims in London. Nine people were hospitalised after a white driver, who witnesses said shouted: "I want to kill all Muslims", slammed into a crowd near a mosque in the Finsbury Park area of London. One elderly man, who had collapsed moments before the van appeared, was pronounced dead at the scene, although police have not yet confirmed whether he died as a result of the attack.

US officials have lashed out at North Korea following the death of Otto Warmbier, the American student who arrived back home in a coma after being released from a prison in North Korea. “At least he got home to his parents,” the president said on Monday during an event with technology CEOs at the White House, speaking just hours after Warmbier died. In a statement issued shortly after his public remarks, Trump said that he extended his “deepest condolences” to the Warmbier family. “Otto’s fate deepens my Administration’s determination to prevent such tragedies from befalling innocent people at the hands of regimes that

A shopping expedition to Arizona led to an unusual scuffle between a visiting North Korean delegation and federal officials at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, according to people familiar with the incident. The Department of Homeland Security seized “multiple media items and packages from the individuals, at which time the North Koreans attempted to physically retrieve the items,” the Department of Homeland Security said Monday. The North Korean delegation had been attending the Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities at the United Nations.

California is restricting publicly funded travel to four more states because of recent laws that leaders here view as discriminatory against gay and transgender people. All totaled, California now bans most state-funded travel to eight states. The new additions to California’s restricted travel list are Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota. They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban. California Attorney Xavier Becerra announced the new states at a Thursday press conference, where he was joined by representatives from ACLU Northern California and Equality California.

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

President Obama has been out of office only a few months. But he might have both a street and an L.A. freeway named after him soon. Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson has proposed renaming Rodeo Road in southwest L.A. “Obama Boulevard” in honor of the president. Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road when running for president and that the area already has streets named after presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Adams). In May, a plan to name a stretch of the 134 Freeway after Obama moved forward with approval from the

Eaarly last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race. But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives — defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee,
