WASHINGTON (AP) — A Chinese Navy ship fired a laser at a U.S. surveillance aircraft flying over the Philippine Sea west of Guam, the Navy said Thursday, acknowledging the incident more than a week...

Need new rules of engagement.

Next time, OVER-REACT badly.

Sink the ship, then any other Chinese naval vessel nearby, then maybe a Chinese commercial vessel nearby, then a fishing boat or two... THEN.. file a formal documented complaint about the original vessel's act.

Shouldn't happen again.

Boris Johnson is facing his first major Commons revolt since the ­general election, with Tory MPs determined to trigger a vote on letting ­Huawei build 5G. Senior Conservatives believe a “large number” of colleagues will vote against allowing the Chinese tech giant to ­handle a third of all the private data passing along the new generation comms network.

Trump sent Mulvaney. The Chief of Staff isn't dispatched to scold, cajole, or suggest. They have ONE JOB enact directives provided him by the President over every department in the US government and they tend to NEVER leave the President's side or the White House executive office building in Washington DC.

The only conceivable purpose for dispatching him is severance. Complete absolute and irreversible severance. They'd have sent one of underlings otherwise.

Johnson is avoiding any meeting (if there is to be any) to avoid the appearance that he may have instigated what he must know is coming.

Amazon has asked a federal court for permission to get testimony from President Donald Trump and Defense Secretary Mark Esper as part of its ongoing protest over the Defense Department's handling of a multibillion-dollar cloud computing contract, according to a court filing unsealed Monday.

Pick multiple fights with Trump and you have to expect bad sh1t is just going to happen to you.

Lose a government contract? Sure. Lucky it wasn't also a random swarm of bees, a plague of locusts or a random d1ck pic leaked to the press from your phone....

hmmm...

BERLIN (AP) — A German state governor installed with the help of a far-right party said Saturday he is resigning with immediate effect, three days after his election shook the country's politics...

I've been casually following AfD for a while. I'm a little confused as to why THEY are always characterized as "far right".

Ideologically, they seem pretty libertarian.

What supports the "far right" label?

it's suddenly up to China to make sure the FAAMGs in particular, and the tech sector, and S&P500 in general, can sustain the lofty ascent that Donald Trump demands to ensure his reelection in November.

Economy continues to rise. Trump get the credit and the Democrats claim it isn't happening.

Economy declines and Trump rightfully blames the Democrats and the Democrats fail to convincingly blame Trump for what they've been overtly trying to arrange for years.

That's at least 3D chess.

The president has a game plan to win the election. A Sanders nomination is just what he needs.

Trump has FL and OH pretty well out of reach of Democrats. Tough for any Dem to plot out a viable path to 270.

Last year a mysterious shipment was caught smuggling Coronavirus from Canada. It was traced to Chinese agents working at a Canadian lab. Subsequent investigation linked the agents to Chinese Biological Warfare Program from where the virus is suspected to have leaked causing the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak...

Canada?!?!?!?
