Highlights of the News



Find someone who looks at you like President Donald John Trump looks at America.

ITEM 1: The Department of Justice announced, "A superseding indictment was returned yesterday in federal court in Brooklyn, New York, charging Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. (Huawei), the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, and two U.S. subsidiaries with conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO)."

RICO?

Suave.

The announcement also said, "The 16-count superseding indictment also adds a charge of conspiracy to steal trade secrets stemming from the China-based company’s alleged long-running practice of using fraud and deception to misappropriate sophisticated technology from U.S. counterparts."

And it said, "As revealed by the government’s independent investigation and review of court filings, the new charges in this case relate to the alleged decades-long efforts by Huawei, and several of its subsidiaries, both in the U.S. and in the People’s Republic of China, to misappropriate intellectual property, including from six U.S. technology companies, in an effort to grow and operate Huawei’s business.  The misappropriated intellectual property included trade secret information and copyrighted works, such as source code and user manuals for internet routers, antenna technology and robot testing technology.  Huawei, Huawei USA and Futurewei agreed to reinvest the proceeds of this alleged racketeering activity in Huawei’s worldwide business, including in the United States."

This went on for decades. That means it goes back to Presidents Clinton, Bush II, and of course, Pay-2-Play Obama.

We now have a president who will take on Red China.

ITEM 2: The Daily Telegraph reported, "MPs have demanded that the Government reconsiders its decision to allow Huawei to help build the UK’s 5G networks after the US government claimed that Huawei had been able to access backdoors in networks for more than a decade.

"Robert C O'Brien, the national security adviser to Donald Trump, claimed that his government had concrete evidence that the Chinese company could covertly access equipment used in national phone networks across the world."

Red China spies on their own people, why not us?

The leader of the free world is just that: the leader. Boris Johnson should get on board the train.

ITEM 3: Yahoo Money reported, "The number of 401k and IRA millionaires again reached record highs, according to Fidelity Investments, thanks in part to good returns from stocks in the fourth quarter.

"The number of 401k accounts with balances of at least $1 million hit 233,000 in the fourth quarter, up from the previous record of 200,000 in the third quarter and 212,000 more than a decade ago when stocks were just beginning to dig out from the financial crisis crash.

"IRAs — or individual retirement accounts — saw a similar trajectory. The tally of IRA millionaires jumped 14% to 208,000 at the end of 2019. This beat the previous record of 182,400 IRA millionaires, reached in the third quarter of 2019.

"Fidelity’s statistics are based on the 17.3 million 401k and 9.9 million IRA retirement accounts it oversees."

The Forgotten American is becoming a millionaire under President Donald John Trump.

ITEM 4Yahoo News reported, "Legal experts and former federal prosecutors say the Justice Department’s reversal of the sentencing recommendation for President Trump’s former campaign adviser is an extraordinary development that could have a long-term impact on public perception of federal law enforcement’s independence from political interference.

Roger Stone, a longtime friend of Trump, was convicted last November for lying to Congress, obstruction of justice and witness tampering. The Justice Department overruled the seven-to-nine-year sentencing recommendation prosecutors made in the case."

The sentencing recommendation was wrong, immoral and an abuse of power.

God bless President Donald John Trump for speaking up for justice.

And that is what this agency is supposed to be, a department of justice, and not a department of politics and insubordination.

ITEM 5: ABC reported, "In an exclusive interview, Attorney General Bill Barr told ABC News on Thursday that President Donald Trump 'has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case' but should stop tweeting about the Justice Department because his tweets 'make it impossible for me to do my job.'

"Barr’s comments are a rare break with a president who the attorney general has aligned himself with and fiercely defended. But it also puts Barr in line with many of Trump’s supporters on Capitol Hill who say they support the president but wish he’d cut back on his tweets."

If you can't stand the tweets, get out of the Cabinet.

ITEM 6: Miranda Devine reported, "The Democrats’ white knight, Michael Bloomberg, might be a good businessman, but he has exposed fatal political weakness even before his presidential campaign is off the ground.

"At the first whiff of criticism, he folded, apologized and repudiated the law-and-order policies that were his greatest legacy as mayor."

She also said, "Why apologize for policies that took guns off the streets and saved black lives?

"Now, in the name of anti-racism, those policies have been dismantled and, presto, shootings are up 30%. Those who suffer most are in black neighborhoods, where an innocent child like 14-year-old Aamir Griffin was killed by a stray bullet last year while playing basketball in Jamaica, Queens."

Never apologize for being right.

Mini Mike believes Donald Trump won because he is a billionaire. No, he won despite it.

ITEM 7: Here is what I mean.
The problem is not that he got the town's name wrong. No, his problem is he is boring. Most people are. That's why we elect people who aren't boring.

ITEM 8: Masha Gessen reported, "By now, you may have heard that some queer people think that Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and a current contender for the Democratic Presidential nomination, is not gay enough. Unless you are immersed in this conversation with other queer people, you may have thought, 'That’s ridiculous.' I am here to explain."

He then gave an explanation that was ridiculous.

Gessen wrote, "As part of his campaign, and in developing his political persona, Buttigieg has repeatedly told a compelling story about his coming out. His is the story of someone who blended in and was therefore able — or, one might say, forced — to choose the circumstances and timing of his coming out. He chose to wait a long time: until after he graduated from college, after he had served in the military, after he had been elected mayor. He has made it clear that he feared that, if he had come out sooner, his political career might have suffered."

12 years ago, some fools discussed whether Obama was black enough.

It is nice to know that just as black people are can be as foolish as white people, gay people can be just as ridiculous as straight people. Equality isn't always a virtue.

ITEM 9: Breitbart News reported, "Americans are paying far less for televisions despite a hike on imports from China, indicating that critics of the Trump administration’s trade policies were badly off course when they claimed consumers would pay higher prices.

"New tariffs on televisions imported from China took effect in September. The rate was originally set at 15% but the U.S. agreed in January to half that under the phase one trade deal. That cut takes effect Friday.

"Television prices have fallen in every month since the tariffs were applied, including a 1.5% drop in October, a 2.2% drop in November, a 1.8% decline in December, and a 1.7% decline in January, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics released Thursday. Compared with a year ago, television prices are have plummeted 20.8%"

So much for the Fake News claim that tariffs are a huge tax increase that will hurt consumers most.

ITEM 10: Tristan Justice reported, "YouTube removed a video clip of Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul reading the question Chief Justice John Roberts suppressed during the Senate impeachment trial naming Eric Ciaramella, a man identified as the whistle blower by Real Clear Investigations.

"'It is a chilling and disturbing day in America when giant web companies such as YouTube decide to censure speech,' Paul told Politico, which first reported the story. 'Now, even protected speech, such as that of a senator on the Senate floor, can be blocked from  getting to the American people. This is dangerous and politically biased. Nowhere in my speech did I accuse anyone of being a whistle blower, nor do I know the whistle blower's identity.'"

Even if he named the whistle blower, so what? That is no crime and it places no one in danger. This is America where you have the right to face your accuser.

You also have the right to free speech.

ITEM 11: The Daily Caller reported, "A former Democratic congressional candidate revealed Wednesday that she was the foreperson on the jury that convicted Roger Stone.

'Tomeka Hart said during the jury selection process that she did not 'pay that close attention' to developments in the Russia investigation. She also said that Stone’s links to President Donald Trump would 'absolutely not' affect her views at trial.

"But Hart’s social media posts show that she was closely tuned in to the Russia probe and that she considered Trump and his supporters to be racist."

Department of Justice needs to prosecute her for perjury because after the Russian Collusion witch hunt, its reputation is in tatters. If the Department of Justice is just going to provide muscle and cover for Democrats, then to hell with it.

ITEM 12: The South China Morning Post reported, "Beijing’s purge of officials in Hubei province picked up pace with the removal of the top Communist Party leaders in the region as the central government responded to public anger over what is seen as the botched handling of the deadly coronavirus outbreak.

"China’s official Xinhua news agency reported that Hubei party secretary Jiang Chaoliang had been replaced by Shanghai mayor Ying Yong, 61, a close ally of Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"The Communist Party leader of the city of Wuhan, Ma Guoqiang, 56, also lost his job, Xinhua said. He will be replaced by Wang Zhonglin, 57, the party secretary of the city of Jinan, in the eastern province of Shandong."

The deck chairs have been rearranged, so don't worry about that iceberg we just hit.

ITEM 13: The Daily Mail reported, "A North Korean official was executed for going to a public bath while he was meant to be in quarantine, a report in the South has claimed.

"The trade official was arrested and immediately shot after risking the spread of coronavirus by visiting the public bath, the Dong-a Ilbo newspaper reported.

"The official had been placed in isolation after travelling to China with Kim Jong-un imposing military law to enforce the lockdown, sources said."

How do you impose martial law when the people already are under martial law? I do like how he fires people. No severance pay or pension top worry about.

ITEM 14: The Daily Mail reported, "New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has indicated that he will make concessions to President Donald Trump in a long-standing dispute over the state's pro-immigrant 'sanctuary' policies.

"In radio interviews on Wednesday, Cuomo said he would allow federal officials limited access to a Department of Motor Vehicles database if the Trump administration reverses its move to block state residents from Global Entry and other programs that allow travelers to avoid long border security lines."

President Trump knew which button to hit. He usually does.

ITEM 15: Happy Trumpenfreude Day.
Every day is Trumpenfreude Day.

ITEM 16Bloomberg News reported, "Charles Munger, who’s a newspaper company executive as well as a Berkshire Hathaway Inc. vice chairman, said U.S. newspapers have no future.

"'Technological change is destroying the daily newspapers in America,' Munger, 96, said Wednesday in Los Angeles at the annual meeting of Daily Journal Corp., the publishing company where he is chairman. 'The revenue goes away and the expenses remain and they’re all dying.'"

Gee, that's a shame.

I get my news online. Craigslist provides the classified ads. And the post office delivers the weekly ad from Poca Food Fair. Tell me what I am missing. I can get anti-Trump editorials anywhere, and besides, most of the editorials in the local newspaper are reprinted from other newspapers.

Newspapers had their opportunity to be the vanguard on the Internet. The London Daily Mail was one of the few to do so. It will survive and thrive. The rest, well, they had a nice run.

ITEM 17: I love it when a plan falls apart.
My one fear is someday Acosta will figure this out.

ITEM 18: Best economy in 50 years.
