Current News – 08.06.2017
- But while the U.S. has enjoyed its moment in the sun, the balance of power has been slowly shifting towards the inevitable rise of China. It’s been a long time coming, but, as Visual Capitalist’s Jeff Desjardins notes, China now has the manpower, influence, and economic might to compete at a similar level – and if you ask people around the world, they’ve certainly taken notice.
- ECONOMIC SUPERPOWERS
- The United States and China combine for 39% of global GDP, 53% of estimated economic growth in the coming years, and 23% of the world’s population.
- But which one is perceived as the more dominant economic power?
- According to a recent survey by Pew Research Center, the vary wildly depending on the people and country surveyed. However, on an aggregate level that uses the results from the people in 38 countries surveyed, Pew determined that a median of 42% of people list the United States as the world’s leading economic power, while 32% name China as top dog.
- Russia special counsel Robert Mueller is using two grand juries — and may use multiple ones — as he broadens his investigation into possible Trump campaign ties to the Kremlin, a lawyer involved in the case said Friday.
- So far, Mueller is using grand juries in Washington and Alexandria, Va. — a lawyer told USA Today that both locations “continued to be active in recent days.”
- After this striking admission, in effect acknowledging the weakness of the “Russian collusion” narrative more than year into the investigation and media hysteria, CNN goes on to report that these claimed grand jury subpoenas extend completely outside the scope of the supposed “Russia” investigation.
- For the record, according to his order of appointment, Mueller’s independent investigation was to be limited to:
(i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and
(ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and
(iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. §600.4(a).
- Regulation 28 C.F.R. §600.4(a) is part of the federal regulations authorizing special counsels. It expands a special counsel’s jurisdiction to crimes, such as perjury or obstruction of justice, that interfere with his original named responsibility.
- As a legal matter, grand juries, like the one Mueller is reported to have impaneled in Washington, DC to assist him in his investigation, have incredibly broad subpoena powers to investigate virtually any crime under their geographic jurisdiction. This is why grand juries are such a powerful tool for prosecutors to conduct investigations.
- If Mueller does overstep the bounds of his commission it would fall to the DOJ official who appointed Mueller and oversees him in the special counsel role, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, to recognize that occurrence and take steps to refocus the investigation.
- The American Center for Law and Justice filed a FOIA request for information surrounding the infamous 2016 Arizona “Tarmac Meeting” between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the ongoing Hillary Clinton investigation.
- The ACLJ has a summary of their initial review –SEE HERE– However, various internet researchers who have reviewed the initial 413 pages (pdf embed below) have discovered something very interesting.
- It appears Attorney General Loretta Lynch used an email alias in her communication to disguise her identity.
- Lynch’s alias appears to be “Elizabeth Carlisle“. (screen grab from page #163):
(PDF Link – page #163) – click to enlarge
- “Elizabeth” is actually the middle name of Loretta Lynch. Why AG Lynch would be using an alias is unknown. However AG Eric Holder also used three aliases when he was Attorney General –SEE HERE-. The discovery of an alias does open the possibility for FOIA requests into the DOJ for all email correspondence with “Elizabeth Carlisle” and might discover additional communication otherwise unidentified.
- There is nobody by the name “Elizabeth Carlisle” in the current contact address book for DOJ employees. It also appears a Twitter account opened in January of 2017 for Elizabeth Carlisle under the username @ElizCarlisle. The account has not tweeted, but did ‘like” a February 17th article in Politico by John Podesta: “Trump Trying to Undermine Reality“.
- The Elizabeth Carlisle Twitter account follows 29 other accounts including Donald Trump and the local WECT weather in North Carolina, Loretta Lynch’s hometown.
- The United States has submitted its formal communication indicating it will withdraw from the Paris Climate agreement as soon as possible
- Despite Friday’s notification, according to Article 28 of the agreement, the earliest actual withdrawal date for the United States is November 4, 2020.
- north Korea has prided itself over the years on remaining relatively detached from the international community.
- Geopolitically, North Korea has also avoided entangling alliances.
- It’s not that North Korea prefers isolation, but it certainly has become accustomed to it. Nor is the country entirely isolated: the elite is aware of the outside world while a good deal of information has leaked to the rest of the population via flash drives and word of mouth.
- Moscow and Beijing are against any missile launches carried out by North Korea and are at the same time calling on the US to halt military drills in the region, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says.

We have agreed to promote this concept in practice, including in the UN,” Lavrov said after the meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Manila.
- Lavrov reiterated the joint Russian-Chinese initiative for “double freezing” which had previously been rejected by the US. The initiative, put forward by the Russian and Chinese foreign ministers on July 4, would freeze “any missile launches and any nuclear tests in North Korea,” as well as “large-scale military exercises by the United States and South Korea,” Lavrov said.
- South Korean President Moon Jae-in is concerned that the propaganda leaflets, which the country’s activists have been sending to North Korea, may spark violent actions, adding that such campaigns should stop, local media reported Friday, citing an official from the presidential office.

- The South Korean president has ordered the government to find ways to avoid clashes that could be prompted by the leaflets campaigns, the official added.
- A day after the US was reported to have participated in an anti al-Qaeda offensive in southern Shabwa Province of Yemen, the Pentagon is confirming that a “small number” of US ground troops have been deployed into Yemen for an ongoing operation against the al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) force.
