Published 2019-12-05 23:40:26 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, China, Crime, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Politics, United-States

Shenzhen, China – Chinese tech giant Huawei filed a complaint seeking to overturn an FCC ruling that bans American firms from using an $8.5 billion federal fund to buy electronics from the company, dubbing it a metaphorical “carpet bombing”. Filed late Wednesday, Huawei’s petition argued the FCC order “exceeds the agency’s statutory authority and violates federal law, the Constitution, and other laws”. The ruling prohibited US companies from purchasing Huawei products using money from the Universal Service Fund (USF), established in 1997 to subsidize American telecoms. “This is our opportunity to use one of the legally permissible mechanisms to try… Continue ->

Published 2019-12-05 14:30:25 by Paul Antonopoulos in Egypt, Eurasia, Greece-Eurasia, Headline-News, Libya, Mena, Turkey

Tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean are rapidly rising after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan met with a Libyan official of the internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA), based in the Libyan capital of Tripoli, in Ankara last week. They agreed on their own Economic Exclusive Zone (EEZ) that penetrates into Greek and Cypriot waters, in violation of the United Nations Convention Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) that favors Cypriot and Greek claims, a major reason why Turkey is only one of 15 UN members, out of 193, that has not signed it. Although Turkey claims it is acting within… Continue ->

UK government denies it will sell off National Health Service to Trump

Published 2019-12-05 13:30:16 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Headline-News, United-Kingdom

‘A plot against the whole country’ declared Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as he brandished a wad of leaked documents last week which he said proves that the UK National Health Service would indeed be ‘on the table’ when it came to US trade talks. Corbyn said the NHS was ‘up for sale’ if the Conservatives were to win the December election whereas Labour would ‘never let Donald Trump get his hands on our NHS’. Arguably it was a strategic move on Corbyn’s part to counter the previous day’s disastrous interview with the infamous Andrew Neil, but regardless its motivation, the… Continue ->

Hunter Biden – an embarrassment to his father and dead brother?

Published 2019-12-05 10:30:56 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Headline-News, United-States

Before becoming Barak Obama’s Vice President, Joe Biden was a senator from Delaware. Delaware is a small state of 961,000, where everyone knows everyone else and everyone knows all the major office holders. Here, all politics are local and Joe Biden comes off as an amiable good guy, kind of like a family’s goofy uncle. Joe Biden is also a sympathetic figure. Soon after his first election in 1972, his wife and daughter were killed in a car wreck. Which helps explains why Biden was elected to seven senate terms. Politics became the Biden family business. Joe Biden’s oldest son,… Continue ->

Published 2019-12-05 02:30:51 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Russia
