Anti-Japanese nationalist riots erupt in cities across China

Thousands of anti-Japanese protesters took to the streets in cities across China on Sunday, demanding that Japan concede sovereignty of the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands to China. In Shenzhen, protesters vandalized and overturned Japanese cars and attacked Japanese restaurants. Some used bare fists to smash in the windows of a white Honda Chinese police car as others rocked and pushed the car over to jubilant cheers. Others stomped on the overturned vehicles, screaming and waving the Chinese flag. Police arrested several protesters in Shenzhen after the demonstrations. The protests came after Japanese nationalist activists aboard a flotilla of 20 ships sailed to the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands, arriving Sunday morning, in order to establish Japanese sovereignty. China's Foreign Ministry is condemning the visit to its "sovereign territory." Reuters and Xinhua

California hopes to stop bankruptcies by anticipating bankruptcy

California cities Stockton, San Bernardino and Mammoth Lakes have all declared bankruptcy in the last seven weeks, and Moody's Investors Service issued a report on Friday saying that a number of additional cities are approaching default. California's cities are particularly vulnerable because a very large real estate bubble is bursting, because huge benefits to retired union workers were granted during the bubble years, and because Governor Jerry Brown last year cut state aid to cities. California Treasurer Bill Lockyer has announced that he's exploring a "new system" for identifying financially stressed cities and to take steps to keep them from going bankrupt, presumably by allowing them to raise taxes as much as necessary.

Real-money bets on poker, slots and other Vegas games coming to iPhones

Game developers are building digital versions of Las Vegas casinos as users of smartphones and tablets wagered $20 billion in real money on slots, poker and other games of chance last year. Online gambling is legal in the U.K., and game developers hope to make the internet casino games available to Americans one way or another, either legally or illegally. Bloomberg

Once again, we're watching the spectacle of feminist and left-wing political groups supporting an alleged serial rapist, Julian Assange, as he uses anti-U.S. sentiments to escape being questioned in Sweden over credible charges that he raped two women.

This was the biggest such spectacle since Democrats paid millions of dollars to NOW to support President Bill Clinton after he'd been credibly charged as a violent serial rapist in 1999. What was particularly poignant was watching Democratic operative Susan Estrich, herself a rape victim who had crusaded for twenty years for the protection and support of rape victims, to sell herself out as a woman and rape victim to give full-throated support to alleged rapist Clinton. And these were the same feminists who, just a few years earlier, pilloried Clarence Thomas for the "crime" of having asked someone out on a date. But feminists throwing rape victims under the bus is nothing compared to how feminists threw their own children under the bus in the 1980s. Every feminist policy was geared towards financially rewarding mothers who practiced the most debauched and destructive behaviors. Gen-X kids in the 80s usually had no "father" except for a string of men in their mothers' beds. The kids didn't read feminist press releases, and so they knew that their mothers were lying about violence to get rid of their real fathers and to get as much money as possible. When they grew up, they created and sold tens of trillions of dollars in intentionally fraudulent synthetic securities, creating the global financial crisis which today is far from over. Gen-X kids learned from the masters, their mothers, how to get rewarded for the worst debauched family behavior, and they grew up and proceeded to get rewarded for the worst debauched fraudulent financial behavior.

The Swedes are furious that they're being lectured to by Ecuador, a country with a history of kangaroo courts and jailing journalists. So what should the Swedes do if they want to bring the alleged serial rapist to justice? My suggestion is this: The Swedes should make a big monetary donation to feminist organizations in Ecuador in return for pressuring the government to turn Assange over to Sweden to answer for the rape charges. Feminists don't hesitate to throw rape victims and children under the bus for money, so they certainly won't hesitate to do the same for Assange. And who knows? Maybe there'll be some justice for some Swedish serial rape victims as a result. Wired and Washington Post (1999) and Committee to Protect Journalism and The Local (Sweden)

Finance Minister says debt crisis can't become 'bottomless pit' for Germany

Germany's Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble ruled out another aid package for Greece, saying, "It can’t be helped -- we can’t make yet another new program. There are limits." This would seem to close the door to Greece's coming requests for a 2-year extension on its austerity program, which require an additional aid package of at least 20 billion euros. According to Schäuble, the sovereign-debt crisis mustn’t become a “bottomless pit” for Germany, even though it's Germany that would pay the highest price for a breakup of the euro region. Bloomberg

Turkey becomes overwhelmed with refugees from Syria

Turkey is setting up four new refugee camps to cope with the sharp increase in recent weeks in the number of Syrians fleeing to Turkey. There are now 70,000 Syrian refugees in Turkey, with a cost of caring for them now at $167 million. More than 170,000 Syrian refugees have been registered in neighboring countries - Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. Some 1.2 million people are uprooted within Syria, many staying in schools or other public buildings. Zaman (Istanbul) / Reuters
