Bits and Pieces – 20181220, Thursday

Commentary

Continuing system instability causing loss of video and the internet due to mainboard problems has resulted in the loss of a body of text that I had assembled around the arrest of Huawei CFO, Meng Wanzhou and other topics.

Initially I considered that Meng’s arrest was illegal and was puzzled that a local crown attorney could arbitrarily execute it. It must go deeper suggesting that some level of government would be involved. As a friend observed and subsequent reading confirmed that the arrest and detention of suspects for which there is an outstanding warrant in the US is a matter of existing treaty or understanding. Still, an arrest of this significance had to be cleared at the highest level of the Canadian government.

I had gathered some links to the blow-back on Canada which are now lost but they involve the detention by the Chinese of two Canadians (three as I get ready to publish) and the loss of the Chinese market to Canada Goose clothing company. One source has suggested that the extradition of Meng could take years. Such happens when illegal aliens in this country who commit crimes, are almost impossible to be deport. Should the deportation occur quickly it would throw big questions at the Canadian judicial system. In any case, trying to write a rational analysis of a situation dependent on what is gleaned from visible sources is fraught with problems. So here are two analyses by other sources that are worth reading if the topic interests you:.

The first is Larry Lindsey: Something About The Huawei CFO Arrest Doesn’t Make Sense and the second is The Trade War Distraction: Huawei And Linchpin Theory.

Commentary

Jim Quinn has just published WINTER IS COMING (PART THREE), his third essay in a series based on the book The Fourth Turning by Strauss & Howe. It explains how the state of global political unrest is the end state of the current fourth turning.

I continue to make minor changes in the organization of the structure of these posts.

Bits and Pieces – 20180117, Wednesday

Commentary: In law, hearsay carries little weight. It is the “he said … she said” conundrum. When it comes down to a person’s word, it actually carries little weight. When it might, the credibility of witnesses is attacked vigorously, especially when no other proof of position is available.

A moment of illumination occurred tonight as I watched a video in which the commentator pointed out that there is no evidence that Trump uttered the “shithole” remark about countries that the expression aptly describes. Apparently, the assertion that he made it comes from the Washington Post, a demonstrably anti-Trump source of “fake news”, whose reporters were present at a White House meeting. No audio or video record of the meeting has come to light although the White House has said that they have such, being now standard practice to record all meetings.

That the MSM and the Liberal intelligentsia have had an orgasm over the attributed comment is of no surprise. What really hit me though was the fact that I had assumed the comment was true without any thought or question. I hope I will be more vigilant in the future, even if I do not report anything on the the issue I am considering as s the case here..
