UK-China trade bromance a blow to White House

OWoN: Boo Hoo, so the White House is not happy that the UK is building bridges and trade with China. Creating Jobs, supporting families, paying taxes, helping ease tensions and enjoying a massive Chinese Tourism boom.

What would this clown have us do? More wars, more stand -offs, more tensions? Shove it! What a Joke of an " Undocumented Worker " illegal President. Who is wrong here? While lining his pockets for his exile to Hawaii. Well he wont exactly make his fortunes from a Speaking Tour afterwards will he?





UK-China trade bromance a blow to White House


CNN
By Charles Riley
13 March 2015

U.S. efforts to counter China's growing influence in Asia have been dealt a blow by Britain's decision to join a new China-led financial institution modeled on the World Bank.

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said Thursday that the U.K. has applied to join the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). If accepted, Britain would be the first major Western country to become a member.

The AIIB, which will help finance infrastructure projects around Asia, is a major flashpoint in the power struggle between the U.S. and China in the Pacific.

Seeking to limit the organization's effectiveness, the U.S. has encouraged allies in the region, including Australia, South Korea and Japan, not to participate.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has raised doubts about the bank's lending standards.

"The critical question is, 'Do they follow the same kinds of practices that are working to help economies grow and to maintain strong and stable foundations?'" he said last year at a conference in Washington.

It didn't take long for the White House to voice its displeasure with the U.K.'s decision. An unnamed U.S. official, quoted in the Financial Times, said that Britain made the decision after "virtually no consultation" with the U.S.

"We are wary about a trend toward constant accommodation of China, which is not the best way to engage a rising power," the official was quoted as saying.

Patrick Ventrell, a spokesman for the National Security Council, told CNNMoney that the administration has:

"concerns" over whether the AIIB will meet "high standards, particularly related to governance, and environmental and social safeguards."

He added, "This is the UK's sovereign decision. We hope and expect that the U.K. will use its voice to push for adoption of high standards."

Prime Minister David Cameron has aggressively sought new trade deals with China, drawing fire from critics who say economic pursuits have forced the U.K. to temper its criticism of Beijing on political and human rights issues.

Critics say this dynamic was on display during last year's pro-democracy protests in the former British colony of Hong Kong, where activists are locked in a battle with Beijing over how the territory's elections will be conducted.

Last week, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons released a report on Hong Kong that called for more assertive action by the British government. The committee said that Britain can and should take "an unambiguous position on its expectations for constitutional reform."

    1. Although I can see this traumatizing the infant, I have to call BS on the story.

      The Doctor's resume just does not suit the story. The original source of the story indicates "as a graduate student working in the Epidemiology department". He is in no way shape or form educated to be anywhere near that department. Although he is well educated, none is in the medical field at all.

    2. Wow.

      Neither of my boys were put through this barbaric procedure.

      I can't believe parents actually let someone do this to their newborn children.

      We never did Vitamin K or any of the vaccines.

      Our culture is so F'd up. This type of stuff just frustrates.

    3. Canauzzie,

      An epidemiologist studies patterns in health. It doesn't take much experience to look at 3 MRI's and see a pattern of change.

      Just because he is a graduate student doesn't mean he is not qualified.

      In the medical field, he is probably 8 years into his study.

      However, 1 case certainly doesn't make a definative. But, it definately warrants more study to see if this is a definative pattern and repeatable among various infants.

      Trauma based mind control is a heavily studied and used field among the CIA. There is a reason for that. It works to change subjects behavior.

    4. Also circumcision in Canada is discouraged and not recommended. Most doctors speak out against it. You actually have to seek out a doctor willing to do it. And every province, except partially for Manitoba, the procedure is not covered by Provincial Healthcare.

      So why destroy evidence when the majority are against circumcision?

    7. Canauzzie, apologize, realized it was a very limited sample, but didn't do the homework needed. Just recognized some truth to it.
      Real research needs to be done by qualified professionals and then maybe we can have the truth. Again, apologize.

    8. Canauzzie,

      He obviously doesn't have a background in the epidemiology.

      The question is why was he working at the hospital for his grad work?

      And...is a degree in that fieldl really needed to recommend an MRI scan, which is all he did.

      Judging from his profile it was probably something to do with the machines used for testing and diagnostics in the hospital.

      Maybe the nurses came to him and asked if there was a machine in the hospital that could measure the effects of a circumcision on a child.

      He is obviously no idiot. 5 separate degrees.

      2 bachelor degrees, 2 masters degrees and a Phd Mathematics with study engineering physics, computer sciences, applied sciences, education and mechanical engineering.

      Ultimately, there is not enough information to come to any conclusion either way.

      It's an interesting result and deserves further study. I would like to see a long term study on this to see if the brain is effected in multiple subjects, for how long and what that translates to in life.

      The shills are moving through the alternative news pages like crazy...there has been some crazy goings on within the last week.

      I was posting an article here, and the whole page blanked out.
      Like I say, we have to sift the hay, and sometimes we cannot sift it enough...

      Delete
    13. Agree Fedup, what thought was a good idea was opening up the potential to show there was reason not to circumcise. Possibly people actually providing hard empirical evidence by vetted and respected doctors and hospitals. Doing the research in an honest and ethical way. The article wasn't strong, but could open up the way. Guess, that's too much to hope for.

      Yes, the shills have been busy and with Easter coming up am getting creative in the baking way and doing chores, just might give things a rest. Got silly and even found the cookbook I use on Amazon for cheap and will give it to the gal who's been so kind to me. She'll like that.

    14. P,

      You brought something for debate, which we are debating - why apologize?


      JV,

      It is just not his qualifications, and I never claimed he was a dummy. The statement that the board would discipline and force the destruction of all evidence just doesn't seem believable given the stance on it.

      Here is The College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia stance on it:

      “Infant male circumcision was once considered a preventive health measure and was therefore adopted extensively in Western counties. Current understanding of the benefits, risks and potential harm of this procedure, however, no longer supports this practice for prophylactic health benefit. Routine infant male circumcision performed on a healthy infant is now considered a non-therapeutic and medically unnecessary intervention.”

      Another option would be to subscribe to comments by RSS feed. You will find both posts and comment subscriptions by RSS feed at the bottom of every page, to the right of the Google+ button. One is for posts, the other for comments. That way you don't miss any comment on any article.

    11. If it wasn't for a poor android default browser and blackberry issues, the mobile site would share the same graphics.

      OWoN is best on Safari and Firefox, however I format it differently to accommodate Chrome and others.

      Mobile version is Blogger default which does not do the site justice, but seems to benefit all users. Sad part is I have no control over it so it shows as it wants. It loses all the graphics and double posts the lead image. Bothers me but is what it is.

      I have all versions to check it regularly except for Blackberry, but I just happen to know someone that hangs around here a lot that has one. I do not check it in Opera though because its market share is not enough to do any changes for.

    It has since pledged to put up most of the bank's initial $50billion in capital
    Washington fears it could undercut World Bank and International Monetary Fund
    But Britain says joining will help the UK promote commercial ties with Asia

  10. USA bombs Iraqi soldiers to stop their advance against ISIS which the US amongst other parties funded:

    http://rt.com/news/240441-iraq-soldiers-killed-investigation/

    The other article that just has been published at OWoN about the spy who helped recruit ISIS members, whilst supposedly fighting against ISIS on behalf of the 'coalition' is also highly interesting. It clearly shows Western duplicity. It also comes as no surprise that Boko Haram and ISIS are aligned as both are funded by the same parties. Maybe Cardinal Ruini had a part in the rise of Boko Haram. Initially Ruini had an army of 400 mercenaries stationed in central Africa merely as a ''hobby project'' as it was stated. Those operations likely expanded.....

  17. John,
    Here's a followup report on the Satanic abuse of those young children. Apparently social services took the children away from the mother who reported to the authorities on the abuse in the first place when she learned of it. It appears it's all being 'swept under the rug' at this time. It appears the mother is no longer with the father who started the Satanic abuse ritual with his children. Why can't the mother have her children back? According to this report, the situation as the children described the locations and people is correct. Is there no one trustworthy to investigate this matter?

  21. Disclosure after a fashion..

    snip
    "On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, President Barack Obama made a strange UFO admission. He said space aliens control the USA, and they are responsible for government secrecy about UFOs. According to the LA Times and New York Magazine, Obama’s admission was nothing more than a joke made in a late night comedy show highlighting his dry sense of humor. But was it? A recent disclosure about UFO secrecy by John Podesta, Obama’s former White House Counselor for Climate Change and Energy Policy, suggests that Obama was serious about a situation he had no control over.

    Here is what Obama said in response to Kimmel according to the LA Times:

    [Kimmel] wanted to know whether Obama had tried to get to the bottom of the “UFO files” about the mysterious desert region known as Area 51.

    “The aliens won’t let it happen,” Obama joked. “You’d reveal all their secrets. They exercise strict control over us.”

    But President Clinton once said he’d checked on the matter and found nothing, Kimmel protested. “That’s what we’re instructed to say,” Obama responded.
    endsnip

    3 Possibilities IMO:
    1. It's all a joke bc ETs don't exist, which we know from files that is not true
    2. The 'space aliens' are the good guys, who control .gov
    3. The 'space aliens' are the bad guys, who control the .gov aka reptilians nephilim etc??

    By definition the good guys leave our free will intact and do not intervene owing to karmic issues and cosmic law, so 1 and 2 are debunked. Which leaves 3. So was O admitting that there are 'service-to-self', dark ETs who are the behind-the-scenes controllers? I think so. This fits with all other info. It's not hopeless though - Pentagon tech now matches theirs from what I have picked up, plus the assistance of the good guys.
