US Congressional Republicans preparing ‘lend-lease’ law to transfer arms to Taiwan

The bill would authorize the president to lend or lease weapons and military equipment to the Taiwan. In exchange, the country’s government is required to repay the cost of “restoring or replacing” the borrowed weapons over a 12-year time frame.

The bill does stipulate that the White House can opt to renegotiate the repayment sum if it deems the money would take away from the national security of both Taiwan and the U.S.

Japanese Lawmakers Make Rare Taiwan Visit to Discuss Potential Conflict

Japan is essential to the US’s plans to boost alliances in the region to encircle China, and Washington is encouraging Tokyo to expand its military. Analysts told The South China Morning Post that a conflict sparked by US intervention in Taiwan could leave Japan and other US allies in the region badly exposed, and in the middle of a situation they have not properly planned for.

Meet the Ex-CIA Agents Deciding Facebook’s Content Policy + Social Media Is a Tool of the CIA

It is an uncomfortable job for anyone trying to draw the line between “harmful content and protecting freedom of speech. It’s a balance”, Aaron says. In this official Facebook video, Aaron identifies himself as the manager of “the team that writes the rules for Facebook”, determining “what is acceptable and what is not.” Thus, he and his team effectively decide what content the platform’s 2.9 billion active users see and what they don’t see.

Deep in the murder of former Prime Minister Abe

July 10, 2022 | Sakai Tanaka

The main point of the case in which Shinzo Abe, the former Prime Minister, was murdered on July 8 was that Abe was the mastermind and fixer who controls the LDP. After Abe retired from the prime minister two years ago, Yoshihide Suga, who succeeded him, and Fumio Kishida, who is now the prime minister, will be the prime minister. At that time, I created a system in which Abe’s intentions have a great influence. Since his prime ministerial era, Abe has continued to be subordinate to the United States while maintaining intimacy with China, transforming Japan into a “US-China” stance. While Abe takes on China’s hostile measures such as the US “Indo-Pacific”, he tries to cooperate without hostile to China in bilateral relations between Japan and China, and the world hegemony structure will change from the conventional US single system to many in the future. Even if it is converted to the polar type, Japan has been able to do it. (Abe’s Japan, which did not follow the US’s view of China and was neutralized)

Amboys’ Anti-China Smears Exposed

By Herman Tiu Laurel

On July 17, 2022 the Philippine Daily Inquirer headlined a complete and total lie about China’s loan assistance to the Philippines, blaring loudly and shamelessly “’Debt trap avoided’; Marcos pushed to review China loans.” How Philippine mainstream media is allowed to publish such outright misinformation and disinformation is truly disgusting.
