    Ukraine is ready to accept a "reasonable compromise" at a four-way summit on settling the conflict in eastern Ukraine, Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said on Tuesday.Leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France are expected to meet next month in the so-called Normandy format to try to end a conflict between Ukrainian troops and Russian-backed forces that has killed more than 13,000 people in five years. "We are going to the Normandy meeting with open ideas, an open mind, ready to accept a reasonable compromise," Prystaiko told reporters at a meeting with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas. Maas said Germany and France would do everything to help reach a permanent solution to the conflict and added that "from our point of view it's time for Russia to step up to the plate" to help end the conflict. The summit will be the first time the leaders of the four countries have met in more than three years and will follow a series of confidence-building measures by Kiev and Moscow, including a prisoner swap and phased troop withdrawals.

    House Intel Chair Adam Schiff appears to be threatening Ukraine over its ongoing corruption probe of the Biden family. During the impeachment hearings on Tuesday, Schiff claimed Ukraine’s investigations into the Bidens could influence U.S. politics. He suggested Ukraine should leave the Bidens alone. “The real message to Ukraine — our U.S. policy message is: don’t engage in political investigations,” stated Schiff. Republican lawmakers have suggested Democrats, rather than President Trump, have tried to pressure the foreign government. “If the Democrats and the media are suddenly so deeply concerned about bribery, you would think they would take some interest in Burisma paying Hunter Biden $83,000 a month,” said Representative Devin Nunes. “And you think they would be interested in Joe Biden threatening to withhold U.S. loan guarantees unless the Ukrainians fired a prosecutor who is investigating Burisma — that would be a textbook example of bribery.” More at: https://www.oann.com/rep-adam-schiff-to-ukraine-dont-investigate-bidens/

    I agree that the law that is being claimed to have been broken is a violation of the 1stA but it would be very unlikely for SCOTUS to rule on that issue before lower courts did.

    It is changing and it will change far more and the border can easily be secured. But keep preaching surrender and doom for the Vatican. You might as well just go on to say that we should just surrender to their plans entirely since if we couldn't secure the border we couldn't impose any other piece of our agenda or resist any piece of theirs.

    That may or may not be true to some extent but it's far better than electing a ChiCom President and getting ChiCom policies in any case.

    You post it if you want, I recently reposted it so it shouldn't be hard for you to find. But what Walmart says is hardly trustworthy, they will say anything China tells them to because they sold their souls to China long ago.

    Tell me about the prices that dropped. And I didn't say no rise, I said little or no rise. It also hasn't been shown that any rise is the result of tariffs.

    Australian scientists have developed a technology they say could make all plastic recyclable, as the country grapples with how to deal with its waste crisis. The patented technology was created by Len Humphreys and Sydney University professor Thomas Maschmeyer, who say it could process plastics that cannot currently be recycled. Australians throw out 3.5 million tonnes of plastic each year, but currently only around 10 per cent of it is recycled. The rest is either burned, buried or shipped overseas. When China announced in January 2018 that it would stop taking Australia's recyclable waste it was a wake-up call for the industry. Now Dr Humphreys sees the mountains of stockpiled plastic as a wasted resource — one he says could be used instead as fuel or remade into new plastic. His Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor (Cat-HTR) does just that through a form of chemical recycling that changes the plastics at a molecular level using hot water at a high pressure to turn them back into oil.

    All they need is to create justifications for it and use it sparingly at first. They will acclimatize people to it and then expand its use.

    Michael Pettis has some words of wisdom for those who believe China will soon overtake the US as the world leader. "Having the smaller banks absorbed by the bigger ones, which seems to be Beijing's new strategy, will mean that China, like Japan in the 1990s, will be dominated by huge zombie banks," says Michael Pettis at China Financial Markets in a series of Tweets. The Tweets were in reference to the Wall Street Journal article Why China’s Smaller Banks Are Wobbling. China’s banks come in various flavors. There are a handful of giants, and a few more medium-size banks that can also operate nationally. Below that lies a bigger cohort of city commercial banks, and more than a thousand tiny rural commercial lenders. Both city and rural banks have their roots in local credit unions, and tend to have limited geographic reach. Cracks are emerging at some small and midsize banks after years of rapid growth. Smaller banks lent liberally to local governments and businesses, and bad debts are rising as China’s economy sputters. Poor governance probably created problems at some banks, too, such as Hengfeng Bank. In late 2017, the official Xinhua News Agency, citing a company statement, said Hengfeng Chairman Cai Guohua was being investigated for “alleged serious violation of discipline and law.” Possible state intervention depends on how large and important a bank is, and who is backing it. In May, national authorities seized Baoshang Bank, a lender in the northern province of Inner Mongolia that was linked to missing tycoon Xiao Jianhua, calling it a “severe credit risk.” This was the first such takeover in more than two decades. In contrast, a big bank and two bad-loan managers bought stakes in the struggling Bank of Jinzhou from existing shareholders. Industry-watchers expect capital injections to follow. Many banks aren’t profitable enough to boost capital through retained earnings. And existing stockholders may be reluctant to buy new shares, given questions over reporting and ownership.

    A West Virginia public library has cancelled their showing of drag queen story hour following a massive grassroots push back against the perverse engagement. The Morgantown Public Library System issued a Facebook post announcing that the event would be cancelled, alleging that violent threats were the reasoning behind the decision. “The Morgantown Public Library System (MPLS) regrets to announce that, due to multiple threats of violence against the volunteer readers, Drag Queen Story Time scheduled for November 16 is cancelled,” they wrote. “MPLS remains committed to fostering a love of reading for all ages and interests and to serving a diverse community. The Library will replace the cancelled event with a story time conducted by Library Staff. Families who planned to attend the 10 AM, November 16th story time will still be able to enjoy a family-friendly event that celebrates our love of books,” they added. Considering the history of drag queen story hour events, West Virginia residents may be correct to be concerned about it coming to their communities. Two sexual predators have already been found administrating drag queen story hour events to children in just one city: After revealing that Houston public libraries allowed a sex offender to groom children at controversial ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ programs, the Houston MassResistance whistle-blower group has found that another pedophile has been given intimate access to young children at these perverted events. Houston MassResistance uncovered that William Travis Dees, who is a member of a draq queen group called the “Space City Sisters,” has been participating in Drag Queen Story Hour events in the town. Dees is a child sex offender who brags about his time as a transgender prostitute.

    China's economy is quickly decelerating, and data last month shows GDP could slip under 6% in 2020. A structural decline, blended with a global synchronized slowdown, and accelerated by trade tensions with the US, have been blamed for China's deteriorating industrial sector. New evidence from research firm Antaike, via Reuters, shows China's aluminum consumption is likely to decline for the first time in 30 years as domestic demand plunges and exports slump. Antaike's senior analyst Shen Lingyan stated at a conference in China's Qingdao city on Wednesday that consumption of aluminum in China would be around 36.55 million tons this year, down 1.2% YoY. "The first reason is domestic consumption, which will decline by 0.9%. Exports will fall 3%," Shen said at the China Aluminium Week conference. October export data of China's unwrought aluminum fell to 431,000 tons, the lowest levels since February. The output of aluminum in China this year has recorded the sharpest decline on record, down 1.6% to 36 million tons, Shen told the conference.
