Jimmy Lai paid Paul Wolfowitz US$75,000 for help in Myanmar

Jimmy Lai and Paul Wolfowitz meet Senior General Min Aung Hlaing

Wolfowitz's visit to Myanmar raised eyebrows last year, as he was a senior member of the US administration in 2002 when it declared then military-ruled Myanmar an "outpost of tyranny".
Lai and Wolfowitz met members of Myanmar's government, including President Thein Sein, armed forces commander-in-chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing and other high-ranking members of the Tatmadaw, Myanmar's military.
According to the Eastweek report, Lai and Wolfowitz boarded a yacht in Sai Kung on May 27 (2014) and were not seen again for five hours. Lai said it was merely a gathering of old friends. "We are good friends," he said. "He was preparing to travel to Indonesia and before then we didn't have chance to meet each other," Lai said.
Asked why the meeting lasted so long, Lai replied: "We don't just chat on the boat. We go swimming too."

「中缅铁路」搁浅

缅甸铁道部7月18日发布消息称,胶漂-昆明铁路工程计划因种种原因搁浅。
有分析认为,这一计划的搁浅,很可能是因日本暗中作梗。
恐怕不止鬼子一家在搞鬼,西方对缅甸的拉拢这几年可以说达到了一个高峰,缅国内的亲西方反对派也是蠢蠢欲动。

黎智英欲盖弥彰 行贿受贿都须交代

屡次被揭向反中乱港政党及人士输送政治黑金的壹传媒主席黎智英,被爆出是反对派策动“占领中环”的最大金主。据多家港媒报道,一位自称“壹传媒股民”的网民昨日(21日)通过在网络晒出视频、文件等资料,首次爆出近期屡传资金短缺的黎智英从去年到今年年初,给“占中搞手”郑宇硕、“占中发起人”之一的朱耀明,以及香港“民主网络”总计“输血”120万元。
据悉,黎智英过去三年总共向9个反对派政治组织及14名人士提供4080万元的政治黑金。包含黎本人的“祸港四人帮”中的另三人:陈日君、陈方安生及李柱铭等,长期收受黎智英的资助,过去三年总计980万元。爆料者更揭出黎智英由有背景的美国人关照,到缅甸低价收购土地、银行等,从中获取巨额资金,再以大量金钱资助反中乱港人士的“路径图”。
该网民昨日向香港《明报》发电邮,附有超过860份来自现任一传媒动画商务总监马克·西蒙(Mark Simon)电脑文档,包含黎智英捐款近千万的单据,甚至含有黎智英与台独大佬施明德的对话及录音。港媒称,这是黎智英向施明德取经,但尚未确定“占中”是否与此对话有关。马克·西蒙曾在美军服役,负责情报工作,目前仍身兼美国共和党香港支部主席。
壹傳媒集團旗下的《蘋果日報》網站引述黎智英說,報道中包括他捐款等很多內容都是事實,但自己是一心和一直支持泛民,不覺得自己亂港,認為如果更多商人協助泛民,他會更開心。黎智英否認受外國勢力資助,指所有捐出的款項都是自己賺取。

英议员:别国法官都爱国,为何你们香港的不忠于国家?

news.takungpao.com

陈方安生与李柱铭前日在英国会听证会上“作证”,本欲借机攻击中央政府并为“占中”造势,然而令他们没有想到的是,整场听证会犹如一个“噩梦”,不仅无法得到英国会的认同,反遭议员的连番质问。经此一事,陈李二人在英国的诚信已告破产。
陈李谎言连篇诚信破产,从陈李二人前日的表现,整场听证会充斥着是谎言与政治算计,某程度上说,香港市民应当感谢陈李二人,如果不是他们的谎言与可笑的政治表演,市民也未必能看清香港的反对派到底有多么丑陋。
对于陈李二人来说,或许没有料想有此种结果。经此一事,其诚信已经破产,日后大概除了别有用心的美国人外,又岂会再有人相信其编造的谎言?

Ron Paul: Don't Blame Putin For Malaysian Jet Shoot Down

Ron Paul

The former Republican presidential candidate says that the United States shares responsibility for the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Many are pointing fingers at Russian President Vladimir Putin for giving weapons to the pro-Russian Ukrainian rebels that are being linked to the shootdown of the Malaysia Airlines jet that crashed in Ukraine, but former Rep. Ron Paul says that Putin shouldn't be blamed.
The Texas Republican said that the fact that Russians may have provided the weapons to the Ukrainian rebels is not enough to put the blame on the Russian president.
"That may well be true, but guess what, ISIS has a lot of American weapons," he said. "We sent weapons into Syria to help the rebels and al-Qaida ends up getting it — it doesn't mean that our American government and Obama deliberately wanted ISIS to get American weapons."

“祸港四人帮”

"We are in the 21st century"

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has criticized China for not respecting international laws. He’s determined to strengthen Japan’s ties with the United States and ASEAN, to deal with China’s rise as a Pacific power.
The United States Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel spoke on "the contribution of the United States to regional stability" on Saturday, nevertheless he openly blamed China for what he called unilateral actions. Behind "the contribution of the United States to regional stability" is the United States security philosophy: Ensuring the safety of its allies by maintaining its military dominance. The US and its leaders even adopted the strategy of stoking fires to do this, with both speeches and actions.
After Abe's speech and the US defense secretary accusing China, Fu Ying, a former senior diplomat of China, said on Saturday she was surprised by some of the languages at the Shangri-La Dialogue that are "more like in the 20th century than in the 21st century."
"For us, we don't think any country can achieve security at the expense of other countries," "We are in the 21st century. We should not keep on resorting to the 20th century mentality that is about war and conflict," she said.

China Accuses U.S. and Japan Of Incitement

5月31日的香格里拉对话会上,中国人民解放军副总参谋长王冠中就美国防长哈格尔所谓“中国破坏南海地区稳定”的讲话作出针锋相对的回应,哈格尔当天的讲话是一篇充满着霸权主义味道、威胁、恐吓、非建设性的讲话,这一讲话鼓动、怂恿亚太地区不安定因素挑事闹事。
中国军事科学院中美防务关系中心主任姚云竹少将在现场答问环节连发四问。日本的钓鱼岛国有化是不是单方面改变现状的行为?钓鱼岛的主权和管辖权是不是一回事儿?中国被批评使用武力和高压的手段改变现状,那美国动不动就跟一个与别国有冲突的盟国说什么共同防御条约适用于利益冲突事件,是不是一种胁迫和滥用武力?中国设立东海识别区违反了哪条国际法?
对哈格尔当天的发言,姚云竹觉得他表达得很直白、很坦率:谁也不能挑战美国在亚太地区的领导地位,美国重返亚太已不是一个愿景而是现实。“从哈格尔的讲话来看,美国要做两件事:一是把中国作为需要国际社会规范的对象,对其行为进行种种限制;二是给他的亚洲盟国一种保障感和安全感。”姚云竹说。

Reality Check: China does innovate

Joe Biden described China this week as a nation incapable of producing innovative products and ideas.
"I challenge you: Name me one innovative project, one innovative change, one innovative product that has come out of China," the vice president dared cadets at Wednesday's Air Force Academy graduation.
In fact, innovation is a key driver of China's economy. It has been for years, and the government is putting money behind it.
Chinese companies are increasing research and development spending by up to 20% a year. Meanwhile, R&D spending in the United States is growing at about 1% to 4%.
"Biden is playing to an outdated idea of China," said Shaun Rein, author of the forthcoming book "The End of Copycat China." "He is underestimating the rise of innovation in China."
Other experts agree. When McKinsey analysts examined China's economic trajectory in 2011, the country's innovation credentials "seemed like yesterday's question."

Chinese Remedies for Pollen Allergy

Remedies for Pollen Allergy

Allergic rhinitis triggered by the pollens of specific seasonal plants is commonly known as "hay fever" because it is most prevalent during haying season. However, it is possible to suffer from hay fever throughout the year. The pollen which causes hay fever varies between individuals and from region to region; generally speaking, the tiny, hardly visible pollens of wind-pollinated plants are the predominant cause.
