*by Noah* Today is the 1-year anniversary of the consummation of Trump's love for Kim Jong un behind closed doors. There were no witnesses meeting with Kim where he most likely made some private deals and asked Kim to use North Korea's prowess in computer hacking to help him win reelection this fall. All you have to do to surmise what went on is ask yourself who and what the two men are and how they operate. I hereby present the above clip in honor of Donald J. Trump's bullshit North Korean photo op and sell out of our country to yet another dictator who he worships and grovels... more »

Gun Questions: Just How Dangerous Is America's M60 Light Machine Gun?

Charlie Gao at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Charlie Gao* *Security, * The M60 would see its first combat use in the Vietnam War in 1965 with the U.S. Marines. *Here's What You Need To Remember: *Does this mean that the M60E6 is the best light machine gun on the market currently? Hard to say. The FN Minimi 7.62 Mk3 is lighter at 8.8 kg, but the M60E6 holds the advantage of being cheaper for existing M60 users, as it can be purchased as a conversion kit. Either way, the M60 has come a long way from its Vietnam-era iteration. The M60 is one of the enduring symbols of the American firearms industry. Born out of a fusion of t... more »

Wilful ignorance of facts on Chinese investment is cheap politics

James Laurenceson at Michael West - 21 hours ago
[image: Photo of Chinese flag flying over Parliament House, Canberra] Fears of China buying up the country run deep, with opportunistic politicians and commentators long showing a willingness to not let "facts" get in the way of the truth. And the facts are that: China's land interests are predominantly leasehold, it owns just 2% of foreign investment stock and is subject to a much lower threshold test. With the Australia-China relationship at a low ebb, it is time to call out this destructive tactic, writes James Laurenceson.
