    It was a boost-my-ego session. But it was fun to watch. He is an entertainer.

    Trump says "I am so good", "I am so rich", "I am helping the Democrats by replacing Obamacare", Russia helping him is an asset ....blah, blah, blah. Get use to it. It is all about him, not the American people.

    Looking forward to more of these ...especially, when he is getting hammered. I like to see him blow up publicly.

    Wow, Donald Trump seems to be an agent for Kryon of Magnetic Service!

    The Next Ones to Fall


    There's something potentially coming that you should know about, and I've reported it before two other times. But I want you to hear it again. What other very large industries don't have integrity, but also have a great deal of money? Prepare for the crumbling of big pharma in America. It is starting now and when the reports happen and the movie is created [smile], Americans will wake up to the fact that they have an enormously wealthy industry that keeps people sick for money.

    Rex Tillerson says China should be denied access to South China sea islands

    U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for secretary of state set a course for a potentially serious confrontation with Beijing on Wednesday, saying China should be denied access to islands it has built in the contested South China Sea.

    In comments expected to enrage Beijing, Rex Tillerson told his confirmation hearing before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee that China's building of islands and putting military assets on those islands was "akin to Russia’s taking Crimea” from Ukraine.

    Asked whether he supported a more aggressive posture toward China, he said: “We’re going to have to send China a clear signal that, first, the island-building stops and, second, your access to those islands also is not going to be allowed.”

    The former Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N) chairman and chief executive did not elaborate on what might be done to deny China access to the islands it has built up from South China Sea reefs, equipped with military-length airstrips and fortified with weapons.

    Tillerson also said Washington needed to reaffirm its commitment to Taiwan, which Beijing regards as a renegade province, but stopped short of Trump's questioning of Washington's long-standing policy on the issue.

    "I don’t know of any plans to alter the 'one China' position," he said.

    Tillerson said he considered China’s South China Sea activity "extremely worrisome" and that it would be a threat to the "entire global economy" if Beijing were able to dictate access to the waterway, which is of strategic military importance and a major trade route.

    He blamed the current situation on what he termed an inadequate U.S. response. "The failure of a response has allowed them just to keep pushing the envelop on this," Tillerson said.

    "The way we’ve got to deal with this is we’ve got to show back up in the region with our traditional allies in Southeast Asia," he said.

    Democratic President Barack Obama’s administration conducted periodic air and naval patrols to assert the right of free navigation in the South China Sea. These have angered Beijing, but seeking to blockade China's man-made islands would be a major step further and a step that Washington has never raised as an option.

    Tillerson's words also went beyond Trump's own tough rhetoric on China.

    Obama has sought to forge a united front in Southeast Asia against China’s pursuit of its territorial claims, but some allies and partners who are rival claimants have been reluctant to challenge Beijing.

    Tillerson called China's South China Sea island-building and declaration of an air defense zone in waters of the East China Sea it contests with Japan "illegal actions."

    "They’re taking territory or control, or declaring control of territories that are not rightfully China’s," he said.

    Tillerson also said the United States could not continue to accept "empty promises" China had made about putting pressure on North Korea over that country's nuclear and missile programs.

    He said his approach to dealing with North Korea - which recently declared it is close to carrying out its first test of an intercontinental ballistic missile - would be "a long-term plan" based on sanctions and their proper implementation.

    Asked if Washington should consider imposing "secondary sanctions" on Chinese entities found to be violating existing sanctions on North Korea, Tillerson said: "If China is not going to comply with those U.N. sanctions, then it's appropriate ... for the United States to consider actions to compel them to comply."

    He accused China of failing to live up to global agreements on trade and intellectual property, echoing past remarks by Trump, who has threatened to impose high, retaliatory tariffs on China. But Tillerson also stressed the "deeply intertwined" nature of the world's two biggest economies.

    "We should not let disagreements over other issues exclude areas for productive partnership," he said.

    That is why that 11 bastard had soften the tone in their White Paper yesterday by saying that they had realized their neglect to their neighbors regarding the South China Sea issue and will now take into consideration of their feelings. Wasn't he the one who assured Obama that he will not militarize those man-made islands? Fuck to him if his words can be trusted.

    All these talk is cheap before he gets inaugurated into office. Of course I do hope that what's said will materialize, but sadly, other than a direct military confrontation with the Chinks, the existing circumstances will not change. But then again, will America be willing to make this sacrifice, even if it manages to rope in Japan and Australia? 2017 is going to be exciting.

    May be US can handle this economically and not through military. If China is weaken economically, its leaders will have no time nor resources for military expansion.

    Much has been discussed about US and China's dependence on each other on trade. Such economic theories may no longer apply now. There are many other ways to sabotage a country economically. The way oil price has tumbled and how Russia not making much noise when it happened is weird. Some think it is market forces at work. However, it may also be manipulated. Looking at how it unfold and how some countries' economy are totally destroyed by this single action. Looking to see the next move targeted at China. My guess is USD and interest rates.

    From my analysis, it'll take at least 3 years to doom Tiongland economically as they still have vast reserves. Can the SCS issue afford to wait that long and by that time, every damned missile and artillery on those man-made islands would be "ready-to-fire". How to evict them at that stage without a war? And don't forget that by that time, their 2nd aircraft carrier may also be battle ready.

    I think 1 very valid reason for US to whack Tiongland is on the pretext of their failure to keep North Korea in check with their nuclear and missile development. And everybody can see for themselves that the CCP is totally not acting at all to suppress that fat Kim. So, should the NK's ICBMs are indeed ready, these will be capable of attacking at least the west coast of America. It will then give Trump a valid reason enough to get the Congress' approval for a conflict with Tiongland, starting from the SCS. By crippling Tiongland to some extent, it will indirectly cut off the umbilical cord (supply of funds) for North Korea.
