US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, has said that China's spy balloon over the US territory was an unacceptable and irresponsible behavior! His trip to Beijing has been cancelled or postponed due to this offensive spy incident. 

China foreign ministry officials expressed a regret to US earlier. They insisted that the weather airship was accidentally blown astray into American airspace by strong winds! However, their statement is not convincing. 

There are some advantages to using balloons for surveillance than a satellite. The spy balloons can be fitted with modern technology like spy cameras and radar sensors, and it is less expensive and easier to deploy.  The balloon's slower speed also allows it to loiter over the target area for longer periods of time.

According to a former military official, the US military can block any data collection or transmissions from that device bellow the balloon. It probably have already been remotely disabled by the defendant.

However, the US and China tie is sinking to the lowest level in the bottom!

The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) today released the findings of its 2022 Review of Notorious Markets for Counterfeiting and Piracy (the Notorious Markets List).  

The Notorious Markets List highlights online and physical markets that reportedly engage in or facilitate substantial trademark counterfeiting or copyright piracy. 

Ambassador Katherine Tai appealed to public, “The widespread trade in counterfeit and pirated goods harms the economic security of American workers and undermines our work to craft equitable and inclusive trade policy,”  

Ambassador Katherine Ta urged to public, “The Notorious Markets List is an important tool that urges the private sector and our trading partners to take action against these harmful practices.” 

Comment: Please avoid doing business with them and be aware of those companies on the list. You may be deceived by those distributors with counterfeit products or you may indirectly violate the domestic laws and regulations on your own risks!

Three Commands are effecting your internet connection to the CS1.6 server so you may need to ajust them in the console during game playing!!!

1. cl_updaterate(receive data packets to server): You can set it to 101 on your config file, and if you have choke during the game, you always lower it to a smaller value until you get a no chokes. If you were getting like 20 chokes, lower the cl_updaterate to 70. If you still get chokes then lower it to 50. This setting is supposed to be around your average fps. 

2. cl_cmdrate(send data packets to server): it is similar to the cl_updaterate. do the same thing as above.

3.  fps_max:  Set your fps_max to 101 first.  During the game if you see your fps goes down to like 40-50 and keeps moving around laggy, then set it to fps_max 75. Keep lowing the setting until it remains constant.

4. rate: You want max performance set it to 20000. LAN is setting to 25000 - 30000. Use rate 20000.

In Trump’s case, it is understandable. First, Trump is president of the United States of America who has authority to access these documents. Second, he just finished his presidential term so he may not have enough time to return these documents! It is understandable! It is a violation of regulations. Third, Trump kept them for personal use! Biden shared them with all people who are working in the office! 

However, Biden’s case is big difference. First, he is former vice president so he should not have authority to access these classified documents at anytime and any situation ! The office where we found the documents was used as a think tank from mid-2017 until the start of the 2020 campaign. Second, he and anyone who had been working in the office should not have any excuses to avoid the responsibility for the illegal access of the classified documents! Because, It is a criminal activity and a breaking of laws! Third, Biden shared them with all persons in the private office. 

Biden commented on Trump’s case last August: "How that could possibly happen? How anyone could be that irresponsible? And I thought, what data was in there that would maybe compromise sources and methods?"

But, today he commented on his own case: “I don't know what's in them”!

Ukraine president :

 Dear Americans in all states, cities, and communities, all those who value freedom and justice, who cheer us as strongly as we Ukrainians in our cities, in each and every family, I hope my words of respect and gratitude resonate in each American heart.

Madam vice president, I thank you for your efforts in helping Ukraine. Madam speaker, you bravely visited Ukraine during the full-fledged war. Thank you very much. Great honor. Thank you.

Very privileged to be here. Dear members of the Congress, representatives of both parties who also visited Kyiv, esteemed congressmen and senators from both parties who will visit Ukraine, I am sure in the future, dear representatives of diaspora – present in this chamber and spread throughout the country – dear journalists, it’s a great honor for me to be at the US Congress and speak to you and all Americans.

Against all odds and doom and gloom scenarios, Ukraine didn’t fall. Ukraine is alive and kicking.(applause)

And it gives me good reason to share with you our first, first joint victory. We defeated Russia in the battle for minds of the world.

We have no fear, nor should anyone in the world have it. Ukraine gained this victory, and it gives us courage, which inspires the entire world.

Americans gained this victory and that’s why you have succeeded in uniting the global community to protect freedom and international law.

Europeans gained this victory, and that’s why Europe is now stronger and more independent than ever. The Russian tyranny has lost control over us.(applause)

And it will never influence our minds again. Yet, we have to do whatever it takes to ensure that Congress of the global south also gains such victory.

I know one more, I think, very important thing. The Russians will stand a chance to be free only when they defeat the Kremlin, in their minds.

Yet, the battle continues, and we have to defeat the Kremlin on the battlefield, yes. These battles not only for the territory for this or in other part of Europe. The battle is not only for life, freedom, and security of Ukrainians or any other nation which Russia attempts to conquer.

This struggle will define in what world our children and grandchildren will live, and then their children and grandchildren. It will define whether it will be a democracy of Ukrainians and for Americans, for all.

This battle cannot be frozen or postponed. It cannot be ignored hoping that the ocean or something else will provide a protection. From the United States to China, from Europe to Latin America and from Africa to Australia, the world is too interconnected and interdependent to allow someone to stay aside and at the same time to feel safe when such a battle continues.

Our two nations are allies in this battle. And next year will be a turning point. I know it. The point when Ukrainian courage and American resolve must guarantee the future of our common freedom, the freedom of people who stand for their values.(applause)

Ladies and gentlemen, Americans, yesterday before coming here to Washington, DC, I was at the front line in our Bakhmut, in our stronghold in the east of Ukraine in the Donbas.

The Russian military and machiners have been taking Bakhmut nonstop since May. They have been taking it day and night, but Bakhmut stands.

Last year, last year, 70,000 people lived there in Bakhmut, in this city, and now only a few civilians stay. Every inch of that land is soaked in blood. Roaring guns sound every hour. Trenches in the Donbas changed hands several times a day in fierce combat, and even hand-fighting. But the Ukrainian Donbas stands.

Russians, Russians use everything, everything they have against Bakhmut and other of our beautiful cities. The occupiers have a significant advantage in artillery. They have an advantage in ammunition. They have much more missiles and planes than we ever had. And it’s true, but our defense forces stand.(applause)

And we, and we all are proud of them. The Russians’ tactic is primitive. They burn down and destroy everything they see. They sent thugs to the front lines, they sent convicts to the war. They threw everything against us, similar to the other tyranny, which is in the Battle of the Bulge.

Threw everything it had against the free world, just like the brave American soldiers, which held their lines and fought back Hitler’s forces during the Christmas of 1944, brave Ukrainian soldiers are doing the same to Putin’s forces this Christmas.

Ukraine, Ukraine holds its lines and will never surrender. So, so, here the front line, the tyranny which has no lack of cruelty against the lives of free people, and your support is crucial not just to stand in such fight, but to get to the turning point to win on the battlefield.

We have artillery, yes. Thank you. we have it. Is it enough? Honestly, not really. To ensure Bakhmut is not just a stronghold, that it holds back the Russian army, but for the Russian army to completely pull out, more cannons and shells are needed.

It’s true. Just like the Battle of Saratoga, the fight for Bakhmut will change the trajectory of our war for independence and for freedom. If your patriots stop the Russian terror against our cities, it will let Ukrainian patriots work to the full to defend our freedom.

When Russia, when Russia cannot reach our cities by its artillery, it tries to destroy them with missile attacks. More than that, Russia found an ally in this, in this genocidal policy: Iran. Iranian deadly drones sent to Russia in hundreds and hundreds became a threat to our critical infrastructure. That is how one terrorist has found the other. It is just a matter of time when they will strike against your other allies if we do not stop them now. We must do it.

I believe, I believe there should be no taboos between us in our alliance. Ukraine never asked the American soldiers to fight on our land instead of us. I assure you that Ukrainian soldiers can perfectly operate American tanks and planes themselves.

Financial assistance is also critically important and I would like to thank you, thank you very much. Thank you for both financial packages you have already provided us with and the ones you may be willing to decide on. Your money is not charity. It’s an investment in the global security and democracy that we handle in the most responsible way.(applause)

Russia, Russia could stop its aggression, really, if it wanted to, but you can speed up our victory. I know it. And it will prove to any potential aggressor that no one can succeed in breaking national borders, no one committing atrocities and reigning over people against their will, it would be naive to wait for steps towards peace from Russia, which enjoys being a terrorist state.

Russians are still poisoned by the Kremlin. The restoration of international legal order is our joint task. We need peace, yes. Ukraine has already offered proposals which I just discussed with President Biden, our peace formula, 10 points which should and must be implemented for our joint security, guaranteed for decades ahead and the summit which can be held.

I’m glad to share that President Biden supported our peace initiative today. Each of you, ladies and gentlemen, can assist in the implementation to ensure that Americans’ leadership remains solid, bicameral and bipartisan. Thank you.

You can strengthen sanctions to make Russia feel how ruinous its aggression truly is. It is in your power, really, to help us bring to justice everyone who started this unprovoked and criminal war. Let’s do it.

Let terrorists – let the terrorist state be held responsible for its terror and aggression and compensate all losses done by this war. Let the world see that the United States are here.

Ladies and gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen, Americans, in two days we will celebrate Christmas. Maybe candlelit. Not because it’s more romantic, no, but because there will not be – there will be no electricity. Millions won’t have neither heating nor running water. All of these will be the result of Russian missile and drone attacks on our energy infrastructure. But we do not complain. We do not judge and compare whose life is easier. Your well-being is the product of your national security, the result of your struggle for independence and your many victories. We, Ukrainians, will also go through our war of independence and freedom with dignity and success.(applause)

We’ll celebrate Christmas, celebrate Christmas and even if there is no electricity, the light of our faith in ourselves will not be put out. If Russian – if Russian missiles attack us, we’ll do our best to protect ourselves. If they attack us with Iranian drones and our people will have to go to bomb shelters on Christmas Eve, Ukrainians will still sit down at the holiday table and cheer up each other. And we don’t, don’t have to know everyone’s wish as we know that all of us, millions of Ukrainians, wish the same: Victory. only victory.(applause)

We already built strong Ukraine with strong people, strong army, strong institutions together with you. We developed strong security guarantees for our country and for entire Europe and the world together with you and also together with you, we’ll put in place everyone who will defy freedom. Putin. This will be the basis to protect democracy in Europe and the world over.

Now, on this special Christmas time, I want to thank you. All of you. I thank every American family, which cherishes the warmth of its home and wishes the same warmth to other people. I thank President Biden and both parties, at the Senate and the House, for your invaluable assistance. I thank your cities and your citizens who supported Ukraine this year, who hosted our Ukrainians, our people, who waved our national flags, who acted to help us, thank, thank you all, from everyone who is now at the front line from everyone who is evading victory.

Standing here today, I recall the words of the President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, which I think so good for this moment: “The American people, in their righteous might, will win through – to absolute victory.” The Ukrainian people will win too. Absolutely.

I know that everything depends on us, on the Ukrainian armed forces, yet so much depends on the world. So much in the world depends on you.

When I was in Bakhmut yesterday, our heroes gave me the flag, the battle flag, the flag of those who defend Ukraine, Europe and the world at the cost of their lives. They ask me to bring this flag to you, to the US Congress to members of the House of Representatives and senators whose decisions can save millions of people. So, let this decisions be taken. Let this flag stay with you, ladies and gentlemen. This flag is a symbol of our victory in this war. We stand, we fight and we will win because we are united – Ukraine, America and the entire free world.(applause)

Just one thing, if I can, the last thing, thank you so much, may God protect our brave troops and citizens. May God forever bless the United States of America. Merry Christmas and happy, victorious New Year.(applause)

(117th Congress )To hold themselves accountable, Democrats and Republicans in both chambers have shown rare signs of agreement on introducing a bill that would stop federal legislators (and their family members) from trading individual stocks while in office. 

More than 40 percent of members of Congress own individual stock shares, amounting to $225 million in assets.

High level lawmakers and officials should be banned from trading stocks, not only to prevent potential conflicts of interest but also to restore public trust in government agencies and decision making.

In one survey, 95 percent of voters said they believe that members of Congress should not be allowed to trade stocks.

(Reported by Wall Street Journal) No matter in what reasons and circumstances, federal officials in the executive branch must not involve in any interests with the companies that are supervised by their regulation! However, during the last two presidential administrations, thousands federal officers have involved in trading stocks in companies that their agencies oversee! These behaviors are representing potential criminal offenses with conflicts of interest! It is another form of corruption! 

“The Wall Street Journal analyzed over 31,000 financial disclosure forms dated between 2016 and 2021, which included information on over 315,000 trades in stocks, bonds and funds by officials and their immediate families. These documents showed that over 2,600 senior officials across 50 federal agencies have disclosed owning stock in companies that have lobbied the agency that they work in. This represents more than one in five senior federal executive branch officials, the report found.” - Wall Street Journal. 

“These stock holdings reveal that not only do officials have personal financial interest in companies they are responsible for regulating, but also that they may be trading stocks at seemingly opportune times.”- Wall Street Journal. 

“Nearly one in three Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials have reported owning investments in companies lobbying the agency, holding up to $2 million in shares in fossil fuel companies on average yearly between 2016 and 2021.” - Wall Street Journal. 

Michael Molina, a senior adviser to the deputy EPA administrator, had owned oil and gas stocks that could have benefited from Trump’s policies favoring fossil fuel companies.In another potential conflict of interest, 

Malcolm Bertoni, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) official, owned a number of stocks in food and drug companies that he said the agency gave him permission to own - despite those companies being on the agency’s no-buy list. 

Greg Zacharias, a Defense Department official, had bought stock in Lockheed Martin five times just before the Pentagon awarded it a new $1 billion contract.It’s possible that many of these trades were legal, even if there are conflicts of interest. 

Defense Secretary office officials collectively owned between $1.2 and $3.4 million in defense contractors or defense companies on average in the studied years.

Opinion: This phenomenon is a cancer to the integrity of the US government!

Advice: Please disregard the email and do not call the number!

If you call the provided number, you will be answered by a scammer who will try to make you pay for his tricks. There are major three tricks that the scammer has prepared in advance. 

First trick, the scammer might ask you to provide your personal information for verification purposes! It is including full name, address, credit card details, social security number, and so on!

Second trick, if the victim does not want to provide any info and insists on cancelling the subscription, they might request a cancellation fee to be paid to them. You will be required to pay it now or to be sued! 

Third trick, the scammer might tell you that they have detected a big problem on your network and they may request to connect to your computer remotely for a fix! If you allow them to do it then they will pretend to fix it and you have to pay for the service! You pay by credit card so eventually they still get your info! 

Be aware!
