Anti-Japanese nationalist riots erupt in cities across China

Thousands of anti-Japanese protesters took to the streets in citiesacross China on Sunday, demanding that Japan concede sovereignty ofthe Senkaku/Diaoyu islands to China. In Shenzhen, protestersvandalized and overturned Japanese cars and attacked Japaneserestaurants. Some used bare fists to smash in the windows of a whiteHonda Chinese police car as others rocked and pushed the car over tojubilant cheers. Others stomped on the overturned vehicles, screamingand waving the Chinese flag. Police arrested several protesters inShenzhen after the demonstrations. The protests came after Japanesenationalist activists aboard a flotilla of 20 ships sailed to theSenkaku/Diaoyu islands, arriving Sunday morning, in order to establishJapanese sovereignty. China’s Foreign Ministry is condemning thevisit to its “sovereign territory.” Reuters and Xinhua

California hopes to stop bankruptcies by anticipating bankruptcy

California cities Stockton, San Bernardino and Mammoth Lakes have alldeclared bankruptcy in the last seven weeks, and Moody’s InvestorsService issued a report on Friday saying that a number of additionalcities are approaching default. California’s cities are particularlyvulnerable because a very large real estate bubble is bursting,because huge benefits to retired union workers were granted during thebubble years, and because Governor Jerry Brown last year cut state aidto cities. California Treasurer Bill Lockyer has announced that he’sexploring a “new system” for identifying financially stressed citiesand to take steps to keep them from going bankrupt, presumably byallowing them to raise taxes as much as necessary.

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

This was the biggest such spectacle since Democrats paid millions ofdollars to NOW to support President Bill Clinton after he’d beencredibly charged as a violent serial rapist in 1999. What wasparticularly poignant was watching Democratic operative Susan Estrich,herself a rape victim who had crusaded for twenty years for theprotection and support of rape victims, to sell herself out as a womanand rape victim to give full-throated support to alleged rapistClinton. And these were the same feminists who, just a few yearsearlier, pilloried Clarence Thomas for the “crime” of having askedsomeone out on a date. But feminists throwing rape victims under thebus is nothing compared to how feminists threw their own childrenunder the bus in the 1980s. Every feminist policy was geared towardsfinancially rewarding mothers who practiced the most debauched anddestructive behaviors. Gen-X kids in the 80s usually had no “father”except for a string of men in their mothers’ beds. The kids didn’tread feminist press releases, and so they knew that their mothers werelying about violence to get rid of their real fathers and to get asmuch money as possible. When they grew up, they created and sold tensof trillions of dollars in intentionally fraudulent syntheticsecurities, creating the global financial crisis which today is farfrom over. Gen-X kids learned from the masters, their mothers, how toget rewarded for the worst debauched family behavior, and they grew upand proceeded to get rewarded for the worst debauched fraudulentfinancial behavior.

The Swedes are furious that they’re being lectured to by Ecuador, acountry with a history of kangaroo courts and jailing journalists. Sowhat should the Swedes do if they want to bring the alleged serialrapist to justice? My suggestion is this: The Swedes should make abig monetary donation to feminist organizations in Ecuador in returnfor pressuring the government to turn Assange over to Sweden to answerfor the rape charges. Feminists don’t hesitate to throw rape victimsand children under the bus for money, so they certainly won’t hesitateto do the same for Assange. And who knows? Maybe there’ll be somejustice 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 aidpackage for Greece, saying, “It can’t be helped — we can’t make yetanother new program. There are limits.” This would seem to close thedoor to Greece’s coming requests for a 2-year extension on itsausterity program, which require an additional aid package of at least20 billion euros. According to Schäuble, the sovereign-debt crisismustn’t become a “bottomless pit” for Germany, even though it’sGermany that would pay the highest price for a breakup of the euroregion. Bloomberg
