          3 Things the Church Must Do to Survive in This Culture      Cache   Translate Page      

In November, I will celebrate 50 years of being given the joy and privilege of ministering. It is and always will be the best thing that God could ever have called me to do with my life.

Over the years I've witnessed incredible miracles and walked through challenging wilderness seasons. These mountaintop and valley seasons have taught me a great deal about myself, my God and His kingdom, and they have caused me to grow and stretch in ways I never could have foreseen at the outset of my ministry career. As I look back, it's clear that my most significant lessons could be summed up in these six words of advice:

1. Be bold.

2. Be broken.

3. Be bright.

While studying the life of David and his desire for the presence of God in his life and in the lives of His people, I realized that throughout every battle and conflict, you can find the evidence of boldness, brokenness and brightness in him. These characteristics in David are what I believe made him a man after God's own heart, and they are why God was able to use him to impact the world around him, including his government. They are what will allow you and me to make an impact on our churches, our communities and our nation too.

As I was watching the Senate hearing in Washington this week, my heart was broken for where we are as a country. We are broken, divided and hostile toward each other. The enemy is saying the church is bigoted, racist, and condescending and that we doubt the Word of God. The devil wants people to believe the church is a thing of the past, so he whispers lies that cause people to question why we would pay attention to something written thousands of years ago. As for believers, even among our ranks there is little evidence of brokenness before the living, mighty, and holy God. There are very few who are willing to humble themselves and repent, or embrace God's love. Each side is flush with boldness but woefully lacking in the other two characteristics that made David so successful.

I am not at all saying the church should step back, stifling its voice in an attempt to find this balance. On the contrary. We cannot take responsibility for the actions and reactions of those with whom we are at odds, but we have a mandate to serve God obediently—and that service requires our boldness and brokenness before Him, even if it makes us uncomfortable.

Although most people who know me today wouldn't easily believe it, I was painfully shy as a child. Because of that shyness, when I was called upon to do bold things, I would cry. But here's the thing: Crying never stopped me. Even when I felt embarrassed of the spotlight or longed to disappear into the background, I knew I couldn't walk away from what I had been called to do, even if stepping out and being boldly obedient would bring painful tears that might make me the subject of ridicule. Before long I realized an important lesson, one I want you to consider today: Through my tears came the greatest breakthroughs of my life.

When our boldness comes out of brokenness before our God, the light of His presence breaks through, allowing the lost world around us to see the brightness of His glory.

The world wants to see Jesus, and right now they are more ready for Him than the church is ready for the world. But God is bringing balance to this area. I believe God is breaking the times of leanness of Spirit, and we get to witness it firsthand. He is clearing the air of a lot of junk in America. Don't be surprised but rather rejoice when you hear of outpourings of the Holy Spirit. God is birthing Holy Spirit boldness in the church, but it will only come out brokenness and humility. Watch, see, and move by faith as He releases the brightness of His glory.

The church in our nation must step up and show the world who God truly is and what the power of His love can do in our broken world. We must show them who we really are—bold, broken and bright with the love and light of Christ, the morning star.

Here's another way to put it: "You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven" (Matt. 5:16, MSG). {eoa}

          With the CBAC, East Meets West in Search of Adoption and Innovation      Cache   Translate Page      
CBAC

The noise that surrounds economic relations between the United States and China is amping up exponentially. You can thank the latest trade wars for that, as fresh tensions boil over between the two nations who are currently trading new tariffs on imports, with no shortage of ill will underpinning the moves.

But the Chinese government’s ire is not just outward-facing. As a country where ICOs are currently not allowed, exchanges have had their bank accounts frozen, and internet and mobile access to cryptocurrency trading information has been banned, China is taking an equally hard line on a wide range of crypto-centric activities within its own borders. All this despite a stark dichotomy, wherein over 50 percent of the worldwide mining population resided within its borders in 2017, and cryptocurrency adoption is outpacing most other countries.

While trade war bullets may be flying thick and fast between these two mega-economies, the key to a better Chinese blockchain sector just may be unlocked by deploying cooperative forces in the United States, as seen by the recent launch of a New York City office for the China Blockchain Application Center (CBAC). The CBAC NY was founded with the hope of paving the way for rapid blockchain adoption in China, in part by picking up regulatory best practices from the United States, all while fostering blockchain and crypto collaboration between the two nations.

An early-stage, non-governmental organization (NGO) established in 2015, the CBAC collaborates with regulatory bodies to develop comprehensive regulations, encourage the application of blockchain technology in traditional industries, and connect Chinese practitioners with peers around the world. By helping to develop increased regulations, blockchain industry applications and international connections, members of the CBAC are hoping to elevate blockchain’s role in China’s $12 trillion economy.

Crypto Challenges in China

One of the speakers at a well-attended August launch party in NYC’s financial district was Stewie Zhu, founder and CEO of the distributed banking public blockchain Distributed Credit Chain (DCC), and a standing committee member of the CBAC. While ICO scams and other bad actors have significantly hindered progress in his home country, Zhu sees plenty of near-term potential for crypto and blockchain technology there.

“While China has prohibited the sale of new cryptocurrencies through ICOs since early last September, there is still a big appetite for the application of blockchain technology,” Zhu told Bitcoin Magazine. “In fact, a [recent] Chinese Supreme Court ruling has stated that blockchain technology can be used to authenticate evidence in legal contexts. The trading of cryptocurrencies is possible, but the government is trying to create financial stability to minimize any illegal activity. The Chinese government is eager to make considerable strides on the technology front, and while stringent, they are trying to ensure that cryptocurrency trading is done responsibly.

“There are challenges behind blockchain technology as it relates to banking,” Zhu continued, “because it requires a reconstruction of long-standing relationships in the current market, as well as time for citizens to understand the mechanisms behind using blockchain. Companies may need to make significant changes to their daily operations to incorporate blockchain, not to mention the time and resources needed for pre-application research.”

Zhu pointed out that it also takes time for private citizens to fully understand and trust cryptocurrency. Between price swings and security vulnerabilities, they may be leery of entering the market, he believes.

“Given the volatility in the crypto market and the negative news about problematic ICOs, individual customers can be cautious of tokens,” he said. “Security is also an issue. Blockchain technology is not perfect. We still need more R&D to develop ways to prevent potential threats such as the 51% attack, where an organization controlling the majority of network mining power can prevent transactions by others and allow its own coin to be spent twice (double spending). So long as these threats exist, many companies may not see blockchain as a practical tool.”

Part of a Bigger Picture

A successful push by the Chinese government to instill crypto confidence goes beyond better banking and protecting consumers, however.

“The Chinese government is trying to shift the economy from manufacturing-based to a more value-added, services-based, to move from being the factory of the world to being the service provider of the world, which is a natural economic evolution that you would expect from any country as they try to level-up,” Zennon Kapron observed in an interview with Bitcoin Magazine. Kapron is the founder of Kapronasia, a Singapore-based firm focused on providing insights into Asia's financial industry.

“China has always tried to stay ahead and it’s used technology as a way of leveraging that with things like AI, machine learning, and some of the camera/surveillance technology as a way for the country to differentiate itself. From an economic perspective, it’s a very challenging transition to make because you're trying to shift demands from import/export to domestic consumption, while you've got a banking system that's relatively new that has a lot of challenges internally. So the government wants to avoid risk to the financial system, as well as the economy as a whole, and largely a lot of the pushback that we've seen from the government on cryptocurrencies is because of that.”

While Kapron is guarded on the immediate impact of blockchain on banking within China, he sees a real near-future need for applying distributed ledger to other fields.

“If we look at health records and food provenance in China, in certain ways [blockchain] would allow China to become coordinated and move much quicker, so the government is very open to the idea of launching technology and seems to be very supportive of it. That support is coming from the idea that, first of all, there are challenges that can be solved and, second of all, if they establish a leading edge around blockchain that could be a competitive advantage for them going forward.”

For Zhu, however, the most tantalizing possibilities for blockchain, in China and elsewhere, lay firmly within the financial realm.

“Blockchain can provide a comprehensive solution to multiple problems in the current financial industry,” he stated. “First off, it provides a decentralized structure, which will break the data monopoly of big, traditional banks and allows individual customers to control their own information. Second, the information on the chain cannot be changed or tampered with, which helps to enhance data security, one of the most important aspects in credit and banking. Third, while enhancing data security, blockchain also helps improve transparency, because every action is recorded on a smart contract and is always trackable.

“In my opinion, the philosophy behind blockchain is security and sharing,” added Zhu. “This technology connects people around the world, allowing them to access reliable information in a more efficient manner.”

Zhu has applied this outlook to his twin goals of growing his company, DCC, while also improving the CBAC’s prospects. For the industry to succeed, he believes it needs to embrace the same cooperation that blockchain facilitates by design.

“Collaboration is very important for companies in the tech sector, especially in an emerging industry like blockchain,” he said. “By joining the CBAC, I’d like to create a connection between the Chinese government authorities, as well as unite projects from both geographies and accelerate development processes. We would like to help our peers and DCC connect with additional experts in the space so that we can grow together at a much faster rate.

“Any new industry, at its birth, will experience volatility before the period of stable, healthy growth. I’d like to work as an active member of the CBAC on the development of industrial regulations, so that the blockchain industry will become more organized, allowing individual companies to fully unleash their potential.”

Coming to America

With the launch of a New York City presence, the CBAC is looking to foster collaboration not just between companies but between countries. Despite the many stumbles of Wall Street and the SEC in their approaches to crypto, Zhu maintains that both entities represent a “gold standard” of regulation, and the CBAC NY is in place specifically to model their best practices.

“As many countries are exploring and experimenting regulations for the blockchain industry, the U.S. is at the forefront and is doing a good job of placing certain safeguards and protection for investors stepping into the ICO world,” he said. “For example, the SEC is taking steps to create regulatory standards with the ‘Howey Test’ which determines whether cryptocurrencies are securities and thus subject to federal securities laws. Also, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy (OIEA) has published a report that seeks to warn investors of the potential ‘risks associated with self-directed Individual Retirement Accounts (self-directed IRAs)’ in which ICOs and cryptocurrencies are highlighted.”

Backed by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Financial Work, the CBAC NY’s mission is to arrange meetings with U.S. regulators and lawyers to gain insight into how the U.S. is setting such standards. From there, the organization will work to push those standards to the top of regulatory authorities in China to help create change. Ultimately, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology develops policies for the blockchain industry.

Seizing Momentum

A range of attendees present at the CBAC NY launch, including blockchain projects, entrepreneurs, regulators, academics, investment firms and exchanges across China and the U.S., indicated the high stakes and hopes for the organization’s success.

“The promise of decentralization and the new platforms and applications currently in development is to lead towards a much more connected world that will make financial value transfer faster, easier, and cheaper,” David Namdar, co-head of trading for the crypto asset merchant bank Galaxy Digital, told Bitcoin Magazine. “As the regulatory landscape develops globally, the CBAC can be instrumental in helping China to regulate blockchain in a way that leads toward greater involvement in an improved global financial ecosystem.

“I have been spending more and more time in Asia this year as we’ve expanded Galaxy Digital to Hong Kong and Tokyo,” Namdar continues, “and have been blown away by the amount of activity and enthusiasm around cryptocurrencies and blockchain applications. In China, I believe there is a lot of momentum as more and more people become educated about the space and understand the technology and it’s potential. However, it continues to be an important challenge to promote innovation around actual uses while curbing speculation.”

While classifying the record of non-profit organizations in influencing Chinese government policy as “hit or miss,” Kapronasia’s Zennon Kapron sees how an improved blockchain ecosystem could translate into major gains for the country with the world’s largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity.

“Certainly, China has become an epicenter of blockchain development,” he stated, “and China moves at China speed: [For example] we did a study a couple of years ago and we looked at cash usage in China. You think about China being a very cash-driven society. 60 percent of all retail transactions in 2010 were done with cash, and we expect that to drop in half to 30 percent by 2020. That shift, considering the population and considering the amount of money that that represents is massive. China can move very quickly on something like this, and so when we look at blockchain development in general and then regulation around blockchain, China could very well be a leader in this space as we go forward.”

“In China, the blockchain industry is growing quickly,” Zhu affirmed. “According to CoinTelegraph, in 2017, the most patent filings for blockchain technology to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) came from China, so we anticipate further applications of blockchain in China in the form of innovation in technology and banking/Internet finance. As I mentioned earlier, China is already using blockchain in a legal context and this type of growth will only continue to increase.”

With its massive footprint, rich resources, deep talent and influencers like the CBAC at work, China looms as a tempting frontier for outside operators in search of the ultimate blockchain destination.

“One of our core missions is to help grow the entire industry globally through technological development, investment and sensible regulation,” says Namdar. “Groups like the CBAC play an important role in education and cross-collaboration efforts with wide-reaching global impact.”

Still, in the eyes of educated observers like Kapron, it’s too early to say definitively if China, crypto and blockchain technology are bound for a copacetic outcome.

“I think we've seen very positive output from them in terms of their opinion and the way they think it could go, but that could change rapidly if there is a risk to the financial system,” he said.

“We're at the very early days right now, and, for most investors or either funds or individuals overseas that are looking at investing in Chinese blockchain projects, it's critical to understand the ecosystem. There are potentially outsized returns in China from some of these platforms, but it still remains to be seen how successful they are and how much the government allows things to move forward.”

          PwC and Cred Partner to Develop Cryptocurrency Trading Technology      Cache   Translate Page      
PwC Cred

Global professional services firm PwC has partnered with decentralized lending platform Cred to boost trust in the cryptocurrency space and bring in more traders by advancing stablecoin technology.

PwC consists of several different financial firms and spans across 158 countries. The company currently boasts over 200,000 employees serving in quality assurance, advisory and tax service positions.

Founded by former PayPal technologists Dan Schatt and Lu Hua, Cred seeks to offer open access to cryptocurrency-based credit options, regardless of where the seeker may reside. With offices in Munich, San Francisco, Shanghai, Sydney and Singapore, the company has utilized the blockchain to secure over $250 million in lending capital for its clients.

Speaking with Bitcoin Magazine, Schatt describes the partnership as a milestone in the crypto industry. “This is one of the first times PwC has formed a joint business relationship with a company focused on the blockchain and crypto,” he explains.

“We’re looking to help people borrow crypto the way they would fiat and treat it like any other asset class. If you go to any bank, it won’t offer crypto loans because it doesn’t acknowledge crypto as a real asset class. This is bad because we need new ways of looking at custody and lending, and this is the first time a big accounting firm has said it would work with a company in this space.”

One of the biggest problems facing cryptocurrency is volatility. Schatt says that volatility exists because the crypto market lacks liquidity, and trading can frequently result in price swings. Many institutional investors refuse to get involved out of concern that their funds will disappear due to crypto’s consistent price drops.

Several have expressed that they would be less worried if virtual assets were tied to fiat currencies like the U.S. dollar, making them stablecoins. The trouble is that such currencies require a reserve ledger built for fully decentralized assets that can provide value substantiation and transparency.

PwC is seeking to provide education to both investors and startups alike that discusses how this technology can advance. In addition, PwC will offer insight on factors ranging from security and risk management to governance and control to potentially improve upon present industry practices.

Schatt is confident further development of stablecoins will increase the level of transparency in the crypto market and boost the economy by getting more mainstream investors involved.

“If you can get a stablecoin that’s very transparent and tied to USD, for example, that’s a very powerful confidence booster,” he states. “Imagine, also, that you can get out of a rapidly depreciating currency and get into something that’s giving you a return on your money between two and five percent. That’s truly powerful.”

Cred is also a founding member of the Universal Protocol (UP) Alliance. Supporters of the organization include Blockchain at Berkley and Brave, whose CEO Brendan Eich recently penned a letter to a U.S. Senate committee asking that GDPR-like standards be implemented in the United States.

The Alliance presently serves as a major platform for the creation, management and distribution of stablecoins, and works to push mass adoption by introducing new kinds of safeguards that make virtual currencies more convenient and practical. These tactics include inheritability, private key recovery and even loss assurance.

Schatt says that lending in crypto is precisely what allows Cred to garner so many funds for its clients. Several traditional lenders enforce long and complicated processes when acquiring money for customers. In addition, factors like interest rates are always going to differ depending on the fiat currency being issued and the individual terms of the lender.

He explains, however, that while credit and background checks are inevitable, Cred’s procedure for securing capital is simpler in that cryptocurrencies possess the same properties no matter where you are. Thus, the interest rates for Cred’s loans do not change, and people have more opportunity to secure their money and pay it back with ease.

“If you own a home, you have to value it in all kinds of different ways, but bitcoin has the same properties no matter what, so we can potentially offer the same level of interest to all customers,” he assures.

Bitcoin Magazine also reached out to PwC for comment, but did not receive a response.

           Kim Jong Un wants Pope Francis to visit North Korea      Cache   Translate Page      


By Associated Press

October 9, 2018 | 10:13am

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wants Pope Francis to visit the officially atheist country, South Korea said Tuesday.

South Korea’s presidential office said in a statement that Kim told President Moon Jae-in during their summit last month that the pope would be “enthusiastically” welcomed in North Korea.

Kim has been intensely engaged in diplomacy in recent months in what’s seen as an effort to leverage his nuclear weapons program for an easing of economic sanctions and military pressure.

North Korea strictly controls the religious activities of its people, and a similar invitation for then-Pope John Paul II to visit after a 2000 inter-Korean summit never resulted in a meeting. The Vatican insisted at the time that a papal visit would only be possible if Catholic priests were accepted in North Korea.

Moon plans to convey Kim’s desire for a papal visit when he travels to the Vatican next week. Moon said on Monday that he expects Kim to visit Russia soon and possibly hold a summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.


The Vatican did not comment on the possibility of a papal visit. But immediately after the news, the Vatican press office released a statement confirming that the pope would receive South Korea’s president in an audience at the Vatican on Oct. 18.

Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said the audience will come a day after the Vatican secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, celebrates a Mass for peace on the Korean Peninsula in St. Peter’s Basilica, where Moon will participate.

Francis visited South Korea in August 2014. On the plane ride back to Rome, he expressed hope that the divisions would be overcome, saying “the two Koreas are brothers, they speak the same language.”

“When you speak the same language it is because you have the same mother, and this gives us hope,” the pope said. “The suffering of the division is great, and I understand this and pray that it ends.”

North Korea’s reported overture comes a few weeks after the Vatican signed a landmark deal with Communist China, North Korea’s closest ally, over bishop nominations, aimed at ending decades of tensions that contributed to dividing the Chinese church and hampered efforts at improving relations between China and the Vatican.

Following an unusually provocative run of weapons tests last year, Kim has been on a diplomatic offensive since the start of this year.

He initiated offers for summits with Seoul and Washington, which led to three meetings with Moon and a highly choreographed June summitwith U.S. President Donald Trump at which they issued an aspirational goal of a nuclear-free peninsula, without describing how or when it would occur.

Kim has presented himself as an international statesman, sharing food, wine and laughs with South Korean officials and appearing thoroughly at ease during his meeting with Trump in Singapore.

But post-summit nuclear negotiations between North Korea and the United States got off to a rocky start, with the North accusing Washington of making “gangster-like” unilateral demands for denuclearization, and calling for sanctions to be lifted before any further progress in nuclear talks.

There are doubts whether Kim is willing to fully relinquish his country’s nuclear weapons, which he may see as a stronger guarantee of survival than whatever security assurances the United States could provide.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Kim in Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital, on Sunday for talks on setting up a second summit with Trump.

The Vatican’s priests were expelled by North Korea long ago and state-appointed laymen officiate services.

Estimates of the number of North Korean Catholics range from 800 to about 3,000, compared to more than 5 million in South Korea.

          Trung Quốc chỉ ‘vẫy cờ’ chứ không thủy chiến với Mỹ trên Biển Đông      Cache   Translate Page      

Tàu chiến Mỹ tăng cường hiện diện trên Biển Đông - Ảnh: National Interest


Theo nhận định của nhà nghiên cứu Colin Koh thuộc Viện Nghiên cứu Quốc tế Rajaratnam (Singapore), vụ tàu chiến Trung Quốc đối đầu thật sát với tàu chiến Mỹ ở Biển Đông có thể là một động tác “vẫy cờ” nhằm duy trì căng thẳng chứ không sa vào một cuộc xung đột vũ trang với Mỹ khi hai bên đều chưa sẵn sàng.


Một Thế Giới lược dịch bài viết của ông Kok:


“Ngày 30.9 xảy ra vụ khu trục hạm Lan Châu của hải quân Trung Quốc đối đầu chỉ cách khu trục hạm Decatur của hải quân Mỹ 41m, khi tàu chiến Mỹ có cuộc tuần tra thực hiện quyền tự do hàng hải (FONOP) dài 10 giờ trong khu vực 12 hải lý quanh Đá Gaven và Đá Vành Khăn thuộc quần đảo Trường Sa của Việt Nam, bị Trung Quốc chiếm đóng trái phép.

Đó là diễn biến căng thẳng mới nhất giữa Mỹ - Trung, sau khi Mỹ trừng phạt Quân đội giải phóng nhân dân Trung Quốc (PLA) mua vũ khí Nga và duyệt bán vũ khí cho Đài Loan. Trung Quốc trả đũa bằng cách triệu hồi Tư lệnh hải quân từ Mỹ về nước, không chấp nhận cho tàu tấn công đổ bộ Wasp của Mỹ thăm Hồng Kông, và hủy một cuộc đối thoại an ninh cấp cao giữa hai bộ trưởng quốc phòng Trung - Mỹ.

Những diễn biến này xảy ra trong bối cảnh quan hệ Mỹ - Trung căng thẳng không chỉ vì cuộc chiến thương mại giữa hai nước. Tuy nhiên để phản đối Bắc Kinh quên lời hứa năm 2015 - Chủ tịch Trung QuốcTập Cận Bình hứa không quân sự hóa Biển Đông với Tổng thống Mỹ Barack Obama khi ông thăm Nhà Trắng -, Mỹ đã hủy lời mời hải quân Trung Quốc tham dự cuộc tập trận quốc tế Vành Đai Thái Bình Dương 2018 (RIMPAC) ở Hawaii.

Vụ đối đầu tàu chiến Mỹ ở Biển Đông có thể là động thái trả đũa để tỏ thái độ không hài lòng của Bắc Kinh, và cũng có thể là một nước cờ đủ để duy trì căng thẳng chứ không chuyển thành một cuộc xung đột vũ trang. Cả hai siêu cường chưa sẵn sàng để đánh nhau trên biển, vì những thiệt hại chính trị - kinh tế rất khổng lồ. Biển Đông hiện là một khu vực mà cộng đồng quốc tế thụ hưởng quyền tự do qua lại trên không và trên biển. Vì thế, chưa bên nào toan tính ngăn cản quyền đi lại dân sự này, còn nếu thực hiện điều đó thì có nghĩa một đòn tấn công nặng nề vào sức khỏe kinh tế toàn cầu, khi đã có ước tính 1/3 tàu chở hàng của thế giới đi qua Biển Đông.

Nhưng phương tiện quân sự nước ngoài đi qua Biển Đông thì bị Bắc Kinh cản trở, như đã thách thức máy bay quân sự nước ngoài bay gần các căn cứ quân sự mà Trung Quốc xây trái phép, hoặc như vụ chặn đầu chiếc Decatur.

Đối với Trung Quốc, không phản ứng có nghĩa từ bỏ tuyên bố chủ quyền Biển Đông vô lý và đòi các nước khác không can thiệp vào cuộc tranh chấp chủ quyền. Việc nhượng bộ sẽ gây ra một hậu quả chính trị không thể tưởng tượng được cho Đảng Cộng sản Trung Quốc, và cho uy tín cá nhân của ông Tập.

Đối với Mỹ, việc nhượng bộ sẽ làm hỏng điều họ đã đấu tranh: Quyền tự do đi lại cho cả phương tiện quân - dân sự, và nhất là gây nghi ngờ về việc Mỹ cam kết bảo vệ an ninh khu vực. Đó là những hậu quả lớn cho uy tín một siêu cường toàn cầu của Mỹ.

Vì thế, Mỹ - Trung sẽ không ngưng các hoạt động của mình. Mỹ sẽ tiếp tục thực hiện các chiến dịch “vẫy cờ” báo hiện diện, gồm tung tàu chiến, máy bay ném bom B-52 vào khu vực. Bắc Kinh sẽ tiếp tục quân sự hóa Biển Đông, thường xuyên tổ chức tập trận không - hải quân và đổ bộ, sẽ tiếp tục khẳng định đó là “phản ứng phòng thủ” trước các hoạt động quân sự của Mỹ và Anh, Pháp, Úc, Ấn Độ, Nhật Bản, là các nước đều đã tăng cường hiện diện quân sự ở Biển Đông.

Câu hỏi sẽ là liệu chiến tranh trên Biển Đông sẽ là một cuộc chơi không có hồi kết? Tranh chấp Biển Đông vừa là chuyện tự do qua lại, vừa là một cuộc tranh chấp ý chí. Mỹ, Trung Quốc và các nước đòi chủ quyền thuộc Hiệp hội các nước Đông Nam Á (ASEAN) đều nghiêm túc không muốn là bên nổ súng trước, không sẵn sàng với việc bị xem là nước gây mất hòa bình và gây bất ổn khu vực.

Các cuộc “vẫy cờ, phô trương sức mạnh” sẽ được Trung - Mỹ và các đồng minh, đối tác của Mỹ tiếp tục thực hiện, nhưng sẽ luôn cố gắng kiềm chế, không sử dụng vũ lực. Tàu chiến, máy bay PLA sẽ tiếp tục bám theo các phương tiện quân sự nước ngoài đi qua Biển Đông. Những tuyên bố thách thức từ các căn cứ Trung Quốc trên quần đảo Trường Sa sẽ tiếp tục, đi kèm việc triển khai chiến đấu cơ và các kiểu máy bay khác.

Trung Quốc sẽ không thể lập Vùng Nhận diện Phòng không (ADIZ) trên Biển Đông vì khu vực này sẽ phản đối, nhưng không điều gì có thể cản tàu chiến, chiến đấu cơ Trung Quốc phô trương sức mạnh mà bất chấp luật pháp như đã thực hiện với khu trục hạm Decatur.

          Diễn biến vụ Trung Quốc bí mật “tung lưới” bắt chủ tịch Interpol      Cache   Translate Page      

Dân trí : Không chỉ Tổ chức Cảnh sát Hình sự Quốc tế mà cả gia đình ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ cũng bất ngờ trước sự biến mất bí ẩn của chủ tịch Interpol trước khi Trung Quốc xác nhận ông bị điều tra vì cáo buộc nhận hối lộ.

Tháng 4/2004: Thăng tiến tại Bộ Công an Trung Quốc


Nhận bằng cử nhân luật tại Đại học Bắc Kinh, một trong những cơ sở giáo dục hàng đầu của Trung Quốc, Mạnh Hoành Vĩ được bổ nhiệm làm thứ trưởng Bộ Công an Trung Quốc từ năm 2004. Khi đó ông Mạnh làm việc dưới quyền cựu Bộ trưởng Công an Trung Quốc Chu Vĩnh Khang.

Cũng trong năm 2004, ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ được giữ chức lãnh đạo tổ chức Interpol tại Trung Quốc. Ông từng nắm giữ nhiều vị trí cấp cao như lãnh đạo Cơ quan Chống khủng bố Quốc gia Trung Quốc và lãnh đạo Cục Cảnh sát Biển Trung Quốc vào năm 2013.


Tháng 11/2012: Bình an vô sự trước “sóng gió”


Sau đại hội đảng Cộng sản Trung Quốc vào năm 2012, ông Tập Cận Bình trở thành tổng bí thư. Cùng thời điểm đó, ông Chu Vĩnh Khang nghỉ hưu.

Không lâu sau khi nghỉ hưu, ông Chu Vĩnh Khang “mất tích” trước công chúng. Năm 2014, các nhà chức trách Trung Quốc xác nhận ông đang bị điều tra vì cáo buộc tham nhũng. Cuộc điều tra đã nhằm vào hàng trăm nhân vật gần gũi với ông Chu Vĩnh Khang trong ngành dầu khí Trung Quốc - nơi ông từng công tác, và cả trong Bộ Công an Trung Quốc.

Ông Chu Vĩnh Khang bị kết án tù chung thân vào năm 2015 với một loạt tội danh gồm nhận hối lộ, lạm dụng quyền lực và tiết lộ bí mật quốc gia.

Từng là cấp dưới của Chu Vĩnh Khang, ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ khi đó vẫn “bình an vô sự”. Vợ ông Mạnh gần đây chia sẻ rằng chồng bà và ông Chu Vĩnh Khang không có quan hệ gần gũi, thậm chí bà còn nói ông Chu từng có ý định đánh bật ông Mạnh ra khỏi Bộ Công an.


Tháng 11/2016: Biểu tượng quốc tế của Trung Quốc



Ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ phát biểu khi còn là chủ tịch Interpol (Ảnh: Getty)

Tháng 11/2016, ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ được bổ nhiệm làm chủ tịch Interpol nhiệm kỳ 4 năm tại Indonesia. Mặc dù chức danh chủ tịch chủ yếu mang tính biểu tượng, song ông Mạnh vẫn được xem là nhân vật có tầm ảnh hưởng và giúp Trung Quốc mở rộng vị thế của nước này trên trường quốc tế.

Với 192 quốc gia thành viên, Interpol có quyền phát “thông cáo đỏ” - một công cụ tương đương với lệnh bắt giữ toàn cầu. Vào thời điểm ông Mạnh nhậm chức chủ tịch Interpol, Trung Quốc đang phát lệnh truy nã với 100 quan chức và nghi phạm tham nhũng bỏ trốn ra nước ngoài với mục tiêu đưa toàn bộ các đối tượng này về nước để xét xử.

Trong khoảng thời gian ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ công tác tại Interpol, Trung Quốc đã đệ trình danh sách truy nã các nghi phạm khẩn cấp nhất tới Interpol và 15 người trong danh sách này đã bị đưa về Trung Quốc kể từ năm 2017.


Từ tháng 12/2017 - tháng 4/2018: Dấu hiệu gặp rắc rối


Mặc dù việc bắt giữ ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ là hành động bất ngờ, song vẫn có một số dấu hiệu cho thấy chủ tịch Interpol có thể đã lọt vào tầm ngắm của chính quyền Trung Quốc từ trước đó.

Chính quyền trung ương Trung Quốc đã rút ông Mạnh rời khỏi vị trí Cục trưởng Cục Cảnh sát Biển và Cục phó Cục Hải dương Quốc gia vào tháng 12/2017, song không cung cấp thông tin chi tiết.

Tới tháng 4/2018, Bộ Công an Trung Quốc thông báo ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ không còn là thành viên của Ủy ban Trung ương đảng Cộng sản Trung Quốc - đơn vị giám sát Bộ Công an Trung Quốc. Động thái này đã làm dấy lên nhiều đồn đoán về tương lai chính trị của ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ.


Tháng 9/2018: Tin nhắn hình con dao

Tin nhắn hình con dao do ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ gửi cho vợ trước khi mất liên lạc (Ảnh: Quartz)




Lần cuối cùng ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ xuất hiện trước công chúng là vào ngày 23/8 tại Singapore.

Bà Grace Mạnh, vợ ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ, cho biết chồng bà đã gửi cho bà tin nhắn với nội dung “hãy chờ cuộc gọi của anh” vào ngày 25/9 trước khi gửi tiếp hình ảnh một con dao. Sau đó, bà Grace mất liên lạc với chồng.

Bà Grace báo tin về sự mất tích bí ẩn của chồng cho cảnh sát thành phố Lyon, Pháp - nơi đặt trụ sở Interpol vào ngày 4/10. Bà Grace nói rằng ông Mạnh đã mất tích 10 ngày kể từ khi trở về quê nhà Trung Quốc.


Tháng 10/2018: Các thông tin được công bố


Sau khi nhận được tin báo về sự biến mất đột ngột của ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ, Interpol ngày 6/10 phát thông báo, yêu cầu chính quyền Trung Quốc cung cấp thông tin ông Mạnh đang ở đâu.

Ngày 7/10, cơ quan điều tra tham nhũng của Trung Quốc đưa ra thông báo với một câu duy nhất cho biết chủ tịch Interpol đang bị điều tra. Không lâu sau đó, Interpol cho biết ông Mạnh đã từ chức.

Tại Pháp, vợ ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ đã chia sẻ câu chuyện của chồng trước báo chí, song giấu mặt vì không muốn ảnh hưởng tới sự an toàn của bản thân và các con.

Ngày 8/10, trong thông báo khá dài được đăng trên truyền thông Trung Quốc, Bộ Công an Trung Quốc đã nói rõ hơn về lý do bắt giữ ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ. Theo đó, Bắc Kinh xác nhận chủ tịch Interpol bị điều tra vì nhận hối lộ và vi phạm pháp luật.

“Điều đó cho thấy không có bất kỳ sự ưu ái nào cũng như không có ngoại lệ trước pháp luật. Bất kỳ ai phạm pháp đều bị trừng phạt nghiêm khắc”, Bộ Công an Trung Quốc nhấn mạnh.

Hiện chưa rõ cuộc điều tra đối với ông Mạnh Hoành Vĩ sẽ kéo dài bao lâu và quy trình xét xử ông sẽ diễn ra như thế nào.

          China's Kafuring Wins the European Quality Award in Healthcare      Cache   Translate Page      

For the first time, a Chinese hospital participates in the Business Triumph Festival in Cannes

BEIJING, Oct. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Business Triumph Festival and European Awards Night organized by the Europe Business Assembly (EBA) formally opened in Cannes, France on October 5. China-based Kafuring, the only non-European medical company that was invited to attend the event, received the EBA European Quality Award for the aspiration to achieve quality in accordance with European standards. Kafuring Chairman Li Xingdong gave a presentation on the company's development, strategy and the contributions that its Implanter Pen technology has made to the medical community. His speech was highly praised by business leaders.

Mr. Li explained the advantages of the Kafuring's Implanter Pen in terms of the small size of the incision, in combination with the high density and natural direction of the hair. The needle incision is 0.6 to 1.0mm in diameter, one-third smaller than traditional implant incisions, assuring a higher transplant density. The resulting wound is small, making it possible to wash one's hair the day following the operation. In addition, the direction in which the hair is transplanted can be flexibly controlled, to fully achieve the desired appearance, delivering a more natural outcome and faster recovery.

In August of this year, Kafuring opened an office in the U.S., the first hair transplant institution established by a Chinese firm outside of its home market. Kafuring is in the process of setting up operations in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia, among other countries. Kafuring's 31 branches, including those under construction, will use the same internationally leading hair transplant technology to serve the growing needs of customers worldwide.

Thanks to its leading and authoritative Implanter Pen technology, Kafuring has again been invited to attend the World Congress of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) in Los Angeles on October 10. Li Xingdong plans to showcase China's innovative and leading hair transplant achievements to industry professionals worldwide, taking China's hair transplant technology to the world stage and empowering the development of a Chinese economy that is focused on quality.


          Pakistan Turns To IMF For Bailout Talks      Cache   Translate Page      
Pakistan's finance minister has announced the country will ask the International Monetary Fund for a bailout. We'll hear from Nadeem Haque, a former Pakistani official and former IMF representative, and Saeed Shah from the Wall Street Journal in Islamabad. Then, Jair Bolsonaro is the favourite in the second round of Brazil's presidential election. The BBC's Julia Carneiro gives us the latest on the country's reaction and what happens now. It’s an age-old question, how do women balance the demands of raising a family with career progression? With three small children and a challenging job Christine Armstrong wanted that question answered once and for all, so she asked as many women as possible for her book the Mother of all Jobs. Alison Green has been giving workplace advice for over a decade and one thing that keeps surprising her is that people want their problems solved without even speaking to the key person. She explains why direct conversation can be the best. All throughout the show, we’ll be joined by Ralph Silva of the Silva Research Network in Toronto, Canada, and Asit Biswas from the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Pakistani President Imran Khan speaks to the media on July 25, 2018.

    TRANSCRIPT:

    3:12 p.m. EDT

    MS NAUERT: Hi, everyone. Good afternoon. Nice to see you all. Okay, a couple announcements to start before we’re able to take a few questions today.

    First, I’d like to address the earthquake and tsunami in Central Sulawesi in Indonesia, and I’d like to say that the United States is coordinating closely with the Government of Indonesia to respond to the earthquake and tsunami that struck there. Since I spoke to you last week, the United States, through USAID, is now providing a total of $3.7 million in assistance through our partners to deliver essential relief items, including shelter kits, blankets, hygiene kits, solar-powered lamps, and other lifesaving aid. USAID is also airlifting heavy-duty plastic sheeting to Indonesia to provide for emergency shelter needs of up to 110,500 people. USAID has deployed a team of disaster experts to coordinate our humanitarian response efforts and is supporting a U.S. Forest Service emergency operations expert who’s on the ground providing technical support to the Government of Indonesia’s disaster response.

    The Department of Defense has provided three C-130s and has already transported nearly 30 – 63 metric tons of disaster relief supplies into the affected areas. The U.S. Government has also provided advanced technologies to help the Government of Indonesia map the disaster area.

    In addition, American companies have also mobilized to respond with financial donations, heavy equipment, transportation, and other humanitarian supplies. The U.S. citizens we were aware of in the affected areas have been evacuated. We have no reports of U.S. citizens who have been injured or killed by the earthquake or the tsunami, and we urge any additional U.S. citizens in the affected areas to contact their loved ones directly and update them on their social media status. If you’re in the affected area and need emergency services, please contact the local authorities.

    Next, I want to address something that the Secretary raised last week because nothing has changed. There are still 65 State Department nominees sitting in the United States Senate. That’s over a quarter of all the senior-level confirmable positions that the United States Department of State is tasked with using to achieve its diplomatic outcomes. There is bipartisan agreement that a fully staffed State Department is critical to American national security. The State Department has been criticized for having gaps in leadership positions, but now we’ve done our part to fix that; now the Senate needs to do its part.

    As the Secretary has said, these candidates are quality candidates. They’re not sitting on the Senate floor because of objections with respect to their quality, their professionalism, or their excellence and ability to deliver American foreign policy. The Secretary had addressed this last week, and he said we have members of the Senate for whom partisanship has now driven delay and obstruction of getting America’s diplomatic corps into every corner of the world. What Senator Menendez and other members of the Senate are doing to hold back American diplomacy rests squarely on their shoulders.

    And with that I’d be happy to take your questions. Anne, you want to go ahead?

    QUESTION: I wanted to ask about Jamal Khashoggi.

    MS NAUERT: Mm-hmm.

    QUESTION: Have you received any response from Saudi Arabia since Secretary Pompeo registered concerns regarding his disappearance?

    MS NAUERT: Sure. Let’s start out – first, I’d like to say I imagine that most if not all of you saw the statement that we put out last night. You probably also heard the President’s comments about it yesterday and also the Vice President’s tweet that he put out yesterday.

    From the Secretary on down, we have been engaged in this matter. This is something that we’ve been following. I understand that the President intends to speak with the Saudis, so I’m not going to get ahead of that conversation that the President may be having.

    In the Secretary’s statement, he said that we’ve seen conflicting reports about his status. We’re not going to make any judgments about what had happened to him. The United States is certainly concerned about his whereabouts. Senior officials at the State Department have spoken with Saudi officials through diplomatic channels about the matter. We call on the Government of Saudi Arabia to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation.

    QUESTION: It was nearly a week between his – first reports of his disappearance and that statement from Secretary Pompeo. Why was there such a delay between those two events?

    MS NAUERT: So are you assuming that taking time to put out a statement means that the State Department has not been doing anything? Is that your assumption?

    QUESTION: What was the State Department doing before the statement came out?

    MS NAUERT: The State Department was engaged at the highest levels and also at the working level and having conversations with Saudi Government officials, and I’ll leave it at that.

    QUESTION: And then so what was the reason behind that delay in the statement coming out?

    MS NAUERT: I wouldn’t – I wouldn’t call it a delay. The United States Government, as we handle situations in other countries as well, sometimes we decide to conduct our conversations and to conduct our diplomacy more privately than publicly because we feel that that could have the best outcome, and I’ll leave it at that.

    Okay. Hi, Lesley. Go ahead.

    QUESTION: Hi. Welcome back.

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

    QUESTION: You must be exhausted, having just arrived.

    MS NAUERT: Kylie is here, I’m here, so we’re doing okay for so far.

    QUESTION: Just arrived last night. Yes.

    MS NAUERT: Yes.

    QUESTION: Has the U.S. seen any evidence that Jamal might be alive?

    MS NAUERT: We don’t know what has happened to him. We don’t have any information on that. That’s why I want to say we don’t want to make any judgments about what happened, and we call for a thorough and transparent investigation.

    QUESTION: You’ve called for a thorough and transparent inspection from the – investigation from the Saudis, but what about the Turks? Have you asked them for their evidence, if they’ve seen --

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information on that. I think that would be in the FBI’s lane and local investigators’ lane.

    QUESTION: But you said you – they – that on these diplomatic channels you’ve spoken to the Saudis, but what about the Turks?

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information on that. I would imagine that through the course of our conversations with the Turkish Government – we have many conversations with the Turkish Government – that this has certainly come up.

    QUESTION: But that would be – that would be P, yes?

    QUESTION: Did the Secretary --

    MS NAUERT: Just hold on. Hold on.

    QUESTION: On Friday, I saw on the Public Schedule that Mr. Hale had a meeting with the Turkish ambassador here at the State Department.

    MS NAUERT: I was out on Friday, so I don’t recall what was on his private – on his public schedule. I’d have to just double-check on that, okay?

    QUESTION: Okay. So --

    MS NAUERT: I’m not saying it didn’t happen. I’m just not aware of it if it did. I was out on Friday.

    Go ahead.

    QUESTION: Since this happened on Turkish soil, wouldn’t speaking to the Turks and being part of their investigation be absolutely key to --

    MS NAUERT: I did not say that we have not spoken with the Turkish Government. I just don’t have any information on it at this moment. Okay? If I have anything in addition for you, I’ll let you know.

    Hey, Carol.

    QUESTION: Hi. Can I ask a follow-up on Jamal Khashoggi?

    MS NAUERT: Sure.

    QUESTION: So the UK foreign secretary has said that if the reports are correct, “We will treat the incident seriously.” I wanted to ask why can’t – or why has not Secretary Pompeo said that if the reports are true and the Saudis, our allies, turn out to be cold-blooded killers, that there will be repercussions?

    MS NAUERT: I think that would be entirely a hypothetical question, and so if the Brits decide to comment that way, they’re more than welcome to do so. But we’re going to wait until the facts come out, and we call again for a thorough and transparent investigation.

    QUESTION: Will there be repercussions?

    MS NAUERT: Carol, I’m not going to get ahead or assume that anything happened. We’re calling for a thorough and transparent investigation. And again, let me say this one more time: I’ll leave it at that. I don’t have anything more for you on this today.

    QUESTION: Can you just confirm if it was Pompeo?

    QUESTION: Does the Secretary plan to speak himself with his counterpart in Saudi Arabia, and did he raise this question when he spoke with the crown prince last week?

    MS NAUERT: I can confirm --

    QUESTION: There was a readout --

    MS NAUERT: I can confirm that the Secretary has had phone conversations, but I don’t have any of the details. And some of those would just be private diplomatic conversations, which I will not be able to read out. Last time I’ll say this: I don’t have anything more for you on this today. If and when I have more, I will bring it to you. Okay?

    Go right ahead.

    QUESTION: On the Palestinians.

    MS NAUERT: Yes.

    QUESTION: Two quick --

    QUESTION: Is it okay? Can I have one more follow-up on Khashoggi, please?

    MS NAUERT: Sir, I don’t have anything --

    QUESTION: It’s in relation to what you just said.

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything more for you on that.

    QUESTION: Let me just --

    MS NAUERT: When I do, I would be happy to give it to you.

    QUESTION: Let me just ask my question, and you decide if you don’t want --

    MS NAUERT: Okay, I’ve not met you before, but go right ahead. Welcome to the State Department. And tell me your publication.

    QUESTION: Fadi Mansour with Al Jazeera. I’ve been covering this place for 10 years now, thank you very much.

    MS NAUERT: Pardon me?

    QUESTION: I’ve been covering this place for 10 years. I don’t come every day because I cover other places.

    MS NAUERT: Okay. Well, it’s nice to meet you. You’re welcome anytime.

    QUESTION: Yes. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to ask questions. So --

    MS NAUERT: Go right ahead. And this will be the last question on this. Go ahead.

    QUESTION: Thank you. So the fact that you called on the Saudis to carry an investigation, is the State Department assuming that Saudi Arabia is responsible for the whereabout of Khashoggi?

    MS NAUERT: We’re not assuming anything. Only because it was their consulate, we’re asking them to conduct an investigation.

    QUESTION: Thank you.

    MS NAUERT: Said, go right ahead.

    QUESTION: Yes, very quickly, U.S. envoy Mr. Greenblatt said that the Trump plan, the deal of the century, is heavily focused on Israeli security. Does that mean that you guys are giving up on the two-state solution, or you see the – you don’t see any, like, contradictions between focusing on Israeli --

    MS NAUERT: This is something that we have talked about for a very, very long time. We support that if both parties --

    QUESTION: And this was --

    MS NAUERT: -- if both parties can agree to it.

    QUESTION: Right.

    MS NAUERT: That hasn’t changed.

    QUESTION: But this was only yesterday. I mean, he went out of his way to say that it is focused on Israeli security. What does that mean to you?

    MS NAUERT: I’m not going to parse his words. I’d just refer you back to his comments. But our position has not changed. As the President has laid out, as he did not too long ago at the UN General Assembly, that we support a two-state solution if both sides can agree to that.

    QUESTION: And one quick question on a young American student who has been detained in Israel for the past five days because she supports BDS. Are you – can you share with us if you’ve done anything? Has she contacted the American embassy, or are you in touch with her? Do you know her whereabouts?

    MS NAUERT: We are aware of her case. Our embassy is providing consular access, as we would to all American citizens. We value freedom of expression. You and I have talked about this many times.

    QUESTION: Right. Many times.

    MS NAUERT: Also in cases where people don’t agree with local policies or even the United States policies. Ultimately, it is up to the Government of Israel to decide who it wants to let into the country. I don’t have anything more for you on that.

    QUESTION: But she – this young woman, Lara Alqasem, she has a visa. She was accepted at the Hebrew University. She was going there to study and so on. She – all of the stuff that she should have done was already done. Are you not concerned about that?

    MS NAUERT: Said, it’s ultimately up to the Government of Israel, or any country for that matter, to decide which individuals, which Americans, it wants to let in. Okay?

    Hi.

    QUESTION: Heather, the issue is not that she wasn’t allowed in. It’s that she’s being detained.

    MS NAUERT: Excuse me. Or being detained. I don’t have any information beyond that. Okay?

    Laurie, go right ahead.

    QUESTION: Hi. Nadia Murad, the Yezidi woman who was captured by ISIS and help captive, just won the Nobel Peace Prize, as probably everyone knows, and she spoke yesterday. And she did note one positive point, the start of de-mining in Yezidi areas, which I assume is related to Secretary Pompeo’s announcement in July at the Religious Freedom conference of extra money for de-mining in the northern Iraq religious minority areas. So they’re very happy with that, but overall it was a grim picture, and among her complaints was no justice for Yezidis. And you and others, including the UN, have recognized ISIS’s assault on the Yezidis as genocide, but the Iraqi Government hasn’t. Are you prepared to put any pressure on them to do so?

    MS NAUERT: I’m not familiar with her remarks. Of course, I’m familiar with who she is. She was one of the guests at our religious freedom ministerial that was held over the summer, and we were so proud to have hosted her here. My understanding is that the Vice President is meeting with her – I believe it’s today. The Secretary and I had a brief exchange about her becoming one of the co-winners of the Nobel Peace Prize, and we’re really proud of her. She’s a very heroic woman, who’s done so much to advance the cause of not just religious freedom but also freedom for women, especially freedom from sexual crimes.

    I don’t have her comments. I don’t have those remarks, so I’m just not going to comment on it beyond that.

    QUESTION: How about her call for an international criminal trial for those members of ISIS who have committed these crimes against Yezidis?

    MS NAUERT: I’m afraid I just don’t have anything for you on that today. Okay?

    QUESTION: South Asia?

    MS NAUERT: Okay, hi.

    QUESTION: Heather?

    MS NAUERT: How are you?

    QUESTION: Thank you. Welcome from (inaudible).

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

    QUESTION: Okay, on North Korea, this trip – has Kim Jong-un submitted a list of nuclear facilities, or you got anything from him for evidence of nuclear list?

    MS NAUERT: We sure did. We made a lot of progress. As you know, we just got back last night from three – four countries in I think it was three days. So it was a very busy time. The Secretary and Chairman Kim discussed the four pillars of the Singapore summit. That was something that was important for them to do. They spent considerable time together. The Secretary and the President, of course, have referenced that since – the Secretary just over at the White House, speaking about this.

    Among the things they also discussed was an upcoming second summit that would be attended by our President and also Chairman Kim, and we look forward to working on all of the details of that. They also agreed to instruct their respective working level groups, led by Steve Biegun, our special representative, and also his counterpart who was named in North Korea, to start intensifying discussions on some of those four pillars that were laid out in the Singapore summit.

    As you know, Chairman Kim had invited inspectors to visit the Punggye-ri nuclear test site to confirm that it’s been irreversibly dismantled. We were pleased with that. And President Trump looks forward to continuing to build upon the trust that was first established at the Singapore summit.

    So we view it as making a lot of progress. We’re pleased with that.

    QUESTION: But North Korea has already destroyed Punggye-ri nuclear site and Tongchang-ri missile site. They --

    MS NAUERT: I think we can say this: We can affirmatively say that they invited a group of journalists out to watch something take place. Inspectors have not been there yet. So inviting inspectors to join, to take a look, and do their work is entirely different from what we’ve seen already.

    QUESTION: Is that happen for denuclearizations?

    MS NAUERT: I’m sorry?

    QUESTION: Is this have for the denuclearizations, for what you – U.S. exactly needed to, but -

    MS NAUERT: That would be a positive step forward, and Chairman Kim agreed to that, to have inspectors at that site.

    QUESTION: Follow up on --

    MS NAUERT: Okay. Go ahead. Let’s just – hold on, I’ll come back to you. Hi.

    QUESTION: So you’ve made progress on a Trump-Kim summit. Do you have any idea of, like, the timing on that? Like, will it be before the end of the year or sometime afterwards?

    MS NAUERT: Well, as the President has said – and I’m not going to get ahead of the President, of course, but the President has said he looks forward to seeing Chairman Kim soon. As you all remember, when we were planning for the Singapore summit, that takes time. There are a lot of details that are involved in pulling together a summit of that magnitude. We need to find a place that both countries can get to. We have to compare schedules – Chairman Kim’s schedule, the President’s schedule, the Secretary’s schedule, probably National Security Advisor Bolton’s schedule – a lot of schedules. We also have to identify a place that has the infrastructure that is needed to accommodate 5,000 journalists. I believe there are 5,000 that were accredited last time.

    So there are a lot of things that come into play here, and so we are hard at work at that. I know Steve Biegun looks forward to having follow-on conversations with his counterpart about some of those details that go into the summit. And as soon as we have something for you, we’ll let you know. Okay.

    QUESTION: So would you say that the – what you’re waiting for to announce even a time or a location for that, is it all just logistical, then?

    MS NAUERT: Well, Michelle, as I just said, and I’ll repeat it again: A lot goes into this. We start with --

    QUESTION: I heard that. Yeah. You don’t have to repeat it.

    MS NAUERT: We start with comparing schedules.

    QUESTION: You don’t have to repeat it.

    MS NAUERT: Okay.

    QUESTION: I’m trying to save you some time. So are you saying that it’s all logistical before you announce a date and time, or are you waiting for North Korea to do something?

    MS NAUERT: We are looking forward to having our second summit. The President is looking forward to doing that. The timing of that will ultimately be announced by the White House. It’ll be a White House led meeting. And when we’re ready to announce that, we will.

    QUESTION: But the question is --

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

    QUESTION: -- since you listed all the logistics involved, are you simply waiting for logistics, or are you waiting for North Korea to do something related to denuclearization?

    MS NAUERT: We have not said anything about waiting for North Korea to do anything more -

    QUESTION: Okay.

    MS NAUERT: -- in order to have that summit. Okay. Nick.

    QUESTION: And when you say a lot of progress, since Punggye-ri is by many accounts an aging facility that’s already been destroyed, by allowing inspectors to come there and see this, which is not necessarily key to North Korea’s current and future nuclear program, why would you characterize that as a lot of progress?

    MS NAUERT: Michelle, I think that’s a very good step. I’ll go back and say it one more time. What you have seen were a bunch of journalists brought out to that site and you saw some sort of an explosion. Sending in inspectors to take a look around is an entirely different step and a step in the right direction, and we think that that’s progress, along with the other things that were addressed in the meeting.

    Nick, go ahead.

    QUESTION: Just as a follow-up to that, I think one of the big questions is what exactly the administration, Secretary Pompeo, President Trump, actually want to achieve from this summit. What’s the main – the headline goal for --

    MS NAUERT: I’m not going to get ahead of the President. The Secretary firmly believes – and I know that this is much to your dismay, to reporters’ dismay – that our negotiations are best handled in public, so I’m not going to get – negotiate it here with all of you from the podium, and I’ll let our experts do the negotiating and do their work and not get ahead of that.

    QUESTION: Heather --

    MS NAUERT: Hi.

    QUESTION: Follow-on on that. The first summit was about general commitments, complete denuclearization by Chairman Kim. Do you expect from the next summit to achieve broader agreement with the ways and --

    MS NAUERT: I’m not going to get ahead of what is being discussed at that summit, okay.

    QUESTION: Not what is being discussed, but what you expect.

    MS NAUERT: My job is not – my job is not to lay out what our policy will be.

    QUESTION: Because we see your goal; we don’t see your method. So --

    MS NAUERT: And – okay, so that’s a fair point. You see our goal, but you don’t see our method. That is something --

    QUESTION: Do you want to do it – work in progress, step by step, or do you want to have a deal --

    MS NAUERT: That is something that we will discuss --

    QUESTION: -- with everything inside?

    MS NAUERT: We will discuss that with the North Koreans and not the broader public, not the media, because we believe that negotiations – some of these complicated negotiations – are best handled between our country and theirs. And our objective is to get to the fully, final, verified denuclearization of North Korea. We are working hard toward that goal. We think we’ve made progress and we’ll continue working toward that goal.

    QUESTION: Ambassador Haley --

    MS NAUERT: Hi. Go ahead. Hi.

    QUESTION: India.

    QUESTION: Welcome back.

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

    QUESTION: So Secretary Pompeo did not meet with the Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday. Could you please shed some light on what happened? And what is – what was the reason given – provided by Chinese Government? Because it’s a understanding that arrangements were being made for this meeting to happen.

    MS NAUERT: We never announced any specific meetings ahead of our trip to China. Is it not every time that the Secretary would go to any given country that he would be meeting with the president of that country. Sometimes he does; sometimes he doesn’t. And so that was just a reflection of this trip, but I know the Secretary had good, constructive meetings with his Chinese counterparts that he met with yesterday.

    QUESTION: Ambassador Haley --

    QUESTION: Has the U.S. asked to such meeting to happen? Has the United States asked China – ask Chinese Government to arrange a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping?

    MS NAUERT: Not to my knowledge. Anything going forward, we’ll let you know when we have that planned.

    QUESTION: Would you characterize U.S.-China relationship as a strategic competitor?

    MS NAUERT: Well, look, they’re certainly a competitor. It’s a complex and broad-based relationship that we have with China, as you all saw in the comments and exchanges between the Secretary and his counterparts. We have areas of common interest. North Korea is one of them. Working to combat illegal narcotics is another area where we work well together. We also have areas of disagreement and areas where we have challenges, and we’ll keep working together on that. It’s obviously an important relationship that we need to work hard to maintain. Okay.

    QUESTION: Ambassador Haley --

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. Yes, go ahead.

    QUESTION: Ambassador – very quickly. Was the Secretary surprised that Ambassador Haley resigned? Does he have any comment? Could you share with us what was his reaction?

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think the Secretary addressed that from the White House today, in which he talked about what a great partner Ambassador Haley has been. The Secretary and Ambassador Haley have worked very well together since the beginning of this administration, but I would say more closely once he became Secretary of State. At the working level, from my level, her team and Ambassador Haley have been wonderful to work with. Sorry to see her depart. This happens, of course, in administrations. The Secretary, I think, is sorry to see her depart as well.

    I’m not going to get into who knew what when and all of that. What is ultimately important is that the President knew about her decision well in advance. They had those conversations. I’m not privy to those conversations, so I’d have to refer you to the White House for that. We’re sorry to see her go and thank her for all her incredible service that she’s done on behalf of the U.S. Government and on taxpayers at the United Nations.

    QUESTION: May I just follow up?

    MS NAUERT: Okay. Okay.

    QUESTION: A follow-up?

    MS NAUERT: Last question. I’m going to have to go.

    QUESTION: So we saw the exchange of rhetorics when Secretary Pompeo was in China. Would you say those tensions now between United States and China would spill over to your cooperation on North Korea at this very critical time?

    MS NAUERT: We don’t think so, because China again and again has said to us, publicly and privately, that they are committed to the denuclearization of North Korea. They understand that; they recognize that. They recognize the importance of that matter. We don’t think they’re backing away. What we do say, though, is that countries including China and Russia can always do more. They can do more, but they are also one of the countries that had voted for UN Security Council resolutions, and so we expect those to uphold those.

    I’ll do one last question. Nazira, hi.

    QUESTION: Welcome back.

    MS NAUERT: Were you at the White House earlier today?

    QUESTION: Yes.

    MS NAUERT: Did I see you?

    QUESTION: Yeah.

    MS NAUERT: I thought I saw your yellow over there.

    QUESTION: Yeah.

    MS NAUERT: She gets around.

    QUESTION: Okay. Thank you.

    MS NAUERT: Thank you.

    QUESTION: Heather, I have two question, one question regarding Afghan delegation. Dr. Abdullah was here. What is their – do you think that they have any achievement? Do they meet any high officials, U.S. authority?

    MS NAUERT: I’m afraid I don’t have any information if – as to whether or not Dr. Abdullah was here at the State Department or here in Washington. I can look --

    QUESTION: He was in New York. I’m asking about General Assemblies at the – New York.

    MS NAUERT: Oh, he was in – oh, at the General Assembly.

    QUESTION: Did he have any meeting with the Secretary of State or either President Trump?

    MS NAUERT: I don’t recall that. It seems like that was a year ago even though that was only two weeks ago, so I’m so sorry. My apologies.

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

    MS NAUERT: I will have to check – double-check to see if he had any meetings with U.S. officials.

    QUESTION: Two weeks ago.

    MS NAUERT: Okay. I’ll check on that for you.

    QUESTION: Yeah. The next question, Ambassador Khalilzad.

    MS NAUERT: Yes.

    QUESTION: He is in Afghanistan and he traveled to Pakistan. Do you think that useful for Afghanistan, Khalilzad mission?

    MS NAUERT: I think it’s extremely helpful to have Ambassador Khalilzad out on travel. This is part of our team on the field, having our people do what they do best, and that is going out and conducting American diplomacy around the world. He is leading an interagency delegation to Afghanistan, to Pakistan, to the UAE, to Qatar, and also to Saudi Arabia. It’s a fairly lengthy trip. His mission there is to coordinate our U.S. efforts to bring the Taliban to the negotiating table. This is still Afghan-led, Afghan-owned. Our policy has not changed in any way. But we’re proud and pleased to have him out there advocating on this behalf and we’ll be working in close coordination with the Afghan Government.

    I’ve got to go, guys. We’ll see you again real soon. Thanks.

          The Global Town Hall – A Worldwide Celebration      Cache   Translate Page

          Ông Kim Jong-un mời Đức Giáo hoàng thăm Bình Nhưỡng      Cache   Translate Page      
Trong động thái ngoại giao mới mẻ, lãnh tụ Kim Jong-un mời Đức Giáo hoàng sang thăm Bắc Hàn, theo tin từ Phủ Tổng thống Nam Hàn.

Kim Jong-un đang cải tổ Bắc Hàn?
Thư mời Đức Giáo hoàng Francis đến thăm Bình Nhưỡng sẽ được Tổng thống Nam Hàn, Moon Jae-in khi ông thăm Vatican tuần tới trong chuyến đi châu Âu.

Chưa có vị giáo hoàng nào thăm Bắc Triều Tiên dù cố Giáo hoàng John Paul II từng được mời.

Bắc Hàn và Vatican chưa có quan hệ ngoại giao.

Kim Eui-kyeom, phát ngôn viên của Tổng thống Hàn Quốc nói với các nhà báo:

"Ông Moon sẽ chuyển lời mời từ Chủ tịch Kim Jong-un tới Đức Giáo hoàng rằng ông Kim sẽ nồng nhiệt đón chào ngài tới Bình Nhưỡng."

Đây là động thái hòa giải mới nhất từ Bắc Hàn.

Ba nước 'chưa từng đón' Giáo hoàng

Cả ba nước do đảng cộng sản lãnh đạo ở châu Á là Trung Quốc, Việt Nam và Bắc Hàn, chưa từng đón một vị giáo hoàng nào đến thăm.

Tuy nhiên mỗi nước có quan hệ hơi khác một chút về mức độ với Tòa Thánh Vatican.

Hà Nội và Vatican vẫn chưa bình thường hóa được quan hệ ngoại giao nhưng Vatican đã có đại diện không thường trú tại nước này.

Từ tháng 5/2018, Đức Tổng Giám mục Marek Zalewski, người kế nhiệm Đức Tổng Giám mục Leopoldo Girelli, làm đại diện không thường trú của Tòa Thánh tại Việt Nam. TGM Zalewski, người Ba Lan, cũng là đại sứ của Vatican tại Singapore.

Bắc Kinh và Vatican cắt đứt quan hệ ngoại giao trong thập niên 1950 và Tòa Thánh hiện giữ quan hệ và đại diện tại Đài Loan.

Nhưng gần đây, Vatican đã công nhận bảy giám mục Công giáo do chính quyền Trung Quốc chỉ định theo một thỏa ước lịch sử ký trong tháng 9.

Thỏa ước này được cho là để cải thiện quan hệ giữa Vatican và quốc gia do Đảng Cộng sản kiểm soát.

Tại CHDCND Triều Tiên, hiến pháp công nhận tự do tôn giáo và tín ngưỡng nhưng ngoài một số nhà thờ được nhà nước cho hoạt động, người dân không được phép theo đạo Thiên Chúa Giáo công khai.

Chính thức mà nói, chỉ có vài chục nghìn người được "đăng ký chính thức" theo Công giáo và Tin Lành ở Bắc Hàn. Con số tín đồ Phật giáo thì đông hơn.

Tuy nhiên, giới nghiên cứu tin rằng Bắc Hàn vẫn có nhiều người ngầm theo các đạo Công giáo và Tin Lành.

Cha mẹ của ông Kim Il-sung, nhà lãnh đạo lập ra CHDCND Triều Tiên, và ông nội của Kim Jong-un, từng là người theo Thiên Chúa Giáo.

Ông Kim Hyong-jik và bà Kang Ban-sok đều là những người sùng đạo và sinh hoạt tôn giáo của họ cũng được chính ông Kim Il-sung kể lại trong các tài liệu chính thức.

Tuy nhiên, càng về sau này, chế độ của Kim Il-sung càng tìm cách sửa đổi hình ảnh bà Kang Ban-sok, để biến bà thành "người mẹ của nước Triều Tiên".

Tòa Thánh hiện có đại sứ ở Seoul, Hàn Quốc và nước này đã hai lần đón Giáo hoàng John Paul II sang thăm, vào các năm 1984 và 1989.

          Trade realism, by Scott Sumner      Cache   Translate Page      

Academics like me are often accused of being out of touch with the real world, relying on unrealistic theories of an idealized world of free trade. So let’s imagine a discussion between me and a “trade realist” (TR).

TR: Let’s face it; a high wage country like the US can’t possible compete with low wage countries in Latin America and Asia. We need trade barriers.

Me: What exactly do you mean by “can’t compete”?

TR:  I mean we’ll end up with big trade deficits, and a loss of jobs.

Me: OK, so does this inability to compete apply to other high wage economies?

TR: I assume so.

Me: But the Eurozone is currently running a $465 billion current account (CA) surplus, seven times larger than China’s surplus, and they have high wages. Indeed the really big surpluses occur throughout northern Europe, where the wages are highest.

TR: Well the Europeans use clever tricks to favor their industries; the US tries to play fair. The bottom line is that the US has a $443 billion CA deficit, and it’s costing jobs.

Me: Yes, I forgot about those devious Nordics.  But the unemployment rate in the Eurozone is currently 8.2%, while the US has a 3.7% unemployment rate, despite huge CA deficits.

TR: Europe has lots of socialist policies; you can’t compare their unemployment rate to ours. In any case, you can’t deny that persistent CA deficits are a drain on our economy, a ticking debt bomb.

Me: Can you be more specific?

TR:  These current account deficits mean that we are borrowing money from the rest of the world to pay for imported goods.  This can’t go on forever.

Me:  Why not?

TR:  Because eventually the interest burden on that debt would become too large to handle.

Me:  So you are saying that huge current account surpluses result in a net indebtedness position, which leads to a net outflow of interest income?

TR:  That’s right.

Me:  But when I check the international accounts, I see our net international investment position has plunged to a balance of negative $7.7 trillion (as you say), but the net flow of investment income is a positive $221 billion/year (red line), and rising.

TR:  How is that possible?

Me:  Imagine you borrowed $15 trillion from your neighbor, at 2% interest, and simultaneously loaned him $7.5 trillion at 7% interest.  Then you’d receive $225 billion more in interest each year than you had to pay him for your much bigger loan.

TR:  But why would he do this?

Me:  Search me.  The point is that the US basically took $15 trillion in Treasury and corporate debt, and used it to buy roughly $7.7 trillion in goods and services from the rest of the world, and also $7.3 trillion in high earning assets.  Those high earning assets spin off more than enough investment income each year to service our much larger foreign debt.

TR:  This seems much too good to be true.

Me:  There is a potential risk here.  At some point in the future, foreigners my not be willing to lend us money at much lower rates than what we earn on our investments in their countries.  At that point, the net investment imbalance could become a big problem for the US.  Something very bad might happen.

TR:  I though so!  What is the specific bad thing that you are worried about?

Me:  If that day of reckoning ever came (and I won’t live to see it, so it’s hard to know for sure), then the US would have to sharply boost its exports of goods and services to the rest of the world, to service our debts.

TR:  More exports?  Umm, why would that be so bad?

Me:  It’s obvious; producing more exports requires labor, it means more jobs.

TR:  Having more jobs is bad?

Me:  Of course it’s bad!  Work is hard, that’s why they call it work.  Work is so undesirable that you have to pay people to work. Visiting Disney World or going to a movie is fun; people must pay money to do fun things.  Work is just the opposite; you must pay people to work. We’d have to work harder without getting to consume more.

TR:  But you said the US already has a very low unemployment rate, so is it really likely that it can go much lower?

Me:  Perhaps not, but in that case we’ll need to tighten our belt.  It won’t be so much that we are having to work hard (we already work harder that the Europeans), rather a share of our income will be “garnished” by consumers in East Asia and Northern Europe.  They will get to consume a part of our labor.  They’ll be paid for our hard work.

TR:  Is there any way to reduce the risk of this happening?

Me:  Let’s begin by stop running $1 trillion budget deficits, which just add fuel to the fire.  We’d have to slightly tighten our belts today, but it would impose less of a debt burden on future generations.  In addition, it will make the future tax system less oppressive.  Other Singapore-style, pro-saving tax reforms would also help.

PS.  I have another piece on trade over at MoneyIllusion.

          Global stocks weighed down by China economy fears      Cache   Translate Page      

LONDON — Global stock markets fell Monday as investors responded to the weekend decision from the Chinese monetary authorities to reduce the amount of capital that banks are required to hold, a move that stoked concerns that the world's number 2 economy is struggling in the face of the tariff dispute with the U.S.

KEEPING SCORE: In Europe, Germany's DAX was down 0.9 percent at 12,000 while the CAC 40 in France fell 0.9 percent, too, to 5,310. The FTSE 100 index of leading British shares was 0.6 percent lower at 7,272. U.S. stocks were poised to open lower too with Dow futures and the broader S&P 500 futures down 0.3 percent. Trading on Wall Street is expected to be light as the federal government, bond markets and much of the country observe Columbus Day. However, light liquidity levels have the potential to accentuate moves one way or the other.

CHINA RATE CUT: Beijing injected money into its cooling economy by reducing the level of reserves banks are required to hold. Economists say that should free up some 1.2 trillion yuan ($175 billion) for lending. The central bank told banks to lend more to entrepreneurs. Chinese leaders are trying to shore up economic growth that began to cool after Beijing tightened lending controls last year to rein in a debt boom. A tariff fight with U.S. President Donald Trump has added to downward pressure on growth. After a weeklong holiday, the Shanghai Composite ended its first day back almost 4 percent lower.

ANALYST TAKE: This drives the idea that further retaliatory measures against U.S. trade tariffs will follow," said James Hughes, chief market analyst at AxiTrader.

US RATES: Also weighing on stocks is the growing expectation that the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise interest rates even further than markets currently expect. The shift in expectations has come after further solid jobs data reduced the U.S. unemployment rate to a near 40-year low of 3.7 percent and comments from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell that the level of U.S. interest rates are a "long way" from holding back economic growth.

ASIA'S DAY: The Shanghai Composite Index tumbled 3.7 percent to 2,716.51 and Hong Kong's Hang Seng retreated 1.4 percent to 26,201.08. Japanese markets were closed for a holiday. Sydney's S&P-ASX 200 lost 1.4 percent to 6,100.30 and Seoul's Kospi was off 0.6 percent at 2,253.83. India's Sensex declined 0.3 percent to 34,267.77. Jakarta gained while New Zealand, Taiwan and Singapore retreated.

ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude tumbled $1.01 to $73.33 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange while Brent crude, used to price international oils, dropped $1.16 to $83.

CURRENCY: The euro dropped 0.4 percent to $1.1478 while the dollar declined 0.3 percent to 113.36 yen.

          Trump: Next Summit With N. Korea's Kim to Be After Nov. US Elections      Cache   Translate Page      
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would be held after U.S. congressional elections on Nov. 6. Speaking to reporters as he flew to Iowa for a political rally, Trump said: "It'll be after the midterms. I just can't leave now." Earlier on Tuesday, Trump told reporters that plans were being made for his second summit with Kim and that he thought "incredible" progress had been made in U.S. talks with the long-isolated North Asian country. He said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had very good talks with Kim over the weekend and that three or four locations were being considered. Pompeo echoed Trump's comments when he spoke briefly to reporters during a Tuesday afternoon visit to the White House. "While there's still a long way to go and much work to do, we can now see a path where we will achieve (our) ultimate goal, which is the full and final verified denuclearization of North Korea," he said. Trump and Kim held a historic first summit in Singapore on June 12 at which Kim pledged to work toward denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. His actions have fallen short, however, of Washington's demands for a complete inventory of its weapons and facilities and irreversible steps to give up its nuclear arsenal, which could threaten the United States. 'No Rockets Flying' Still, Trump was upbeat on progress so far. "You got no rockets flying, you have no missiles flying, you have no nuclear testing," Trump said in the Oval  Office. "We've made incredible progress - beyond incredible. "But I have agreed to meet," he said. "We have a very good relationship with Chairman Kim. I like him, he likes me, the relationship is good." Pompeo said on Monday the two sides were "pretty close" to agreeing on details for a second summit. He added that Kim had said he was ready to allow international inspectors into North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear testing site and the Sohae missile engine test facility as soon as the United States and North Korea agreed on logistics. But experts questioned what Pompeo achieved on Sunday on his fourth visit to Pyongyang this year. They said the North Korean leader appeared simply to be repackaging and dragging out past pledges. Trump noted that the United States had not lifted the "very big sanctions" it has imposed on Pyongyang. "I'd love to remove them, but we have to get something for doing it," Trump said. North Korea is very interested in reaching some sort of agreement on denuclearization so that it can grow economically with the benefit of the foreign investment closed to it now, Trump said. The U.N. World Food Program said on Tuesday that the supply of food remained precarious in North Korea, where one in five children is stunted by malnutrition. More than 10 million North Koreans, nearly 40 percent of the population, are undernourished and need humanitarian aid, it said. "I will tell you they're calling, wanting to go there and wanting to invest," Trump said. "At some point, when Chairman Kim makes that decision, I think he's going to unleash something that's going to be spectacular, really spectacular. And I think he knows it and I think that's one of the reasons that we're having very successful conversations."

          Wealth gap grows in Singapore and India, South Korea and Indonesia address it      Cache   Translate Page      

Addressing inequality does not depend on a country’s wealth but on political will. The gap between the super-rich and the rest of humanity continues to grow. Most of the world's wealth is concentrated in three regions: North America, Europe and Asia. The total number of Asia’s billionaires rose to 784, toping North America’s 727.


          Έτοιμη για απογείωση η μεγαλύτερη πτήση στον κόσμο!       Cache   Translate Page      
Tην προσεχή Πέμπτη στο αεροδρόμιο της Σιγκαπούρης θα γραφτεί αεροπορική ιστορία. Διαβάστε το πως και το γιατί. Πώς θα σας φαινόταν μία πτήση η οποία θα κρατούσε 19 ολόκληρες ώρες, σχεδόν μία μέρα δηλαδή; Αν είστε λάτρης του αεροπλάνου και θέλετε να νιώσετε μία τέτοια εμπειρία, δεν έχει παρά να επιβιβαστείτε στην πτήση της Singapore Airlines που θα συνδέσει τη Σιγκαπούρη με τη Νέα Υόρκη. Διάρκεια; Ακριβώς 19 ώρες γεγονός που κάνει την πτήση ως τη μεγαλύτερη απευθείας του κόσμου. Η 19ώρη εμπειρία θα λαμβάνει χώρα σε Airbus A350-900 ULR, αεροπλάνο τελευταίας τεχνολογίας που έχει σχεδιαστεί για πολύ μεγάλες πτήσεις όπως αυτή. Η πρώτη θα γίνει την προσεχή Πέμπτη 11 Οκτωβρίου ενώ το δρομολόγιο θα διεξάγεται τρεις φορές την εβδομάδα. Τα νέα Αirbus 350, 22 τον αριθμό, παραλήφθησαν από την εταιρία στις 22 Σεπτεμβρίου αφού στις 23 Απριλίου είχε γίνει και η πρώτη δοκιμαστική πτήση τους στη Γαλλία. Περιλαμβάνουν πολύ μεγαλύτερα παράθυρα από το συνηθισμένο και μπορούν να καλύπτουν χωρίς νέο ανεφοδιασμό 11.160 μίλια συνεχόμενα. Οπως αναφέρει και άνθρωπος της Αirbus, η καμπίνα αυτών των αεροπλάνων θυμίζει πλέον "περισσότερο δωμάτιο, παρά την παραδοσιακή καμπίνα των συμβατικών αεροσκαφών". Πηγή: News247

          Từ ĐM-Hồ Chí Minh phát sinh những tội đồ ĐM-Nguyễn Duy Cống, Trần Đại Quang, Nguyễn Phú Trọng...      Cache   Translate Page      
Người Đưa Tin - Nguyễn Đan Thanh (Danlambao) - Kính thưa quý Ông Bà và Anh Chị Em cùng quý Bạn đọc. Trước, cho con kính cảm ơn BBT Dân Làm Báo, quý Thầy Cô, quý Tác giả, quý Còm sĩ và những người tử tế đã cho con những tùy chọn để làm người. Sau, cho con xin lỗi về những lỗi lầm con mắc phải, làm mọi người bận tâm hay khó chịu. Con không dám nhận mình là nhà đấu tranh dân chủ. Càng không phải nhà văn, nhà giáo hay nhà báo gì ráo trọi. Mong ước của con là được đi học để biết đọc, biết viết Anh ngữ để có cơ hội tiếp cận các nguồn tài liệu ngoại quốc, phản biện những nhận định sai lạc về "The Vietnam War" cũng như tội ác CNCS. Nếu ước mơ của con quá tầm tay với, không thực hiện được. Con xin tạ lỗi cùng người, con chỉ muốn làm anh nhà đòn đưa đảng cộng sản và tội ác ra nghĩa địa, cho Việt Nam mình thôi khốn khổ. Trọng kính.
Bài viết nhấn mạnh về hành động tàn ác của cộng sản Bắc Việt sau 1975 đến nay. Tính từ Đỗ Mười (ĐM) Nguyễn Duy Cống đến Nguyễn Phú Trọng. Để tránh chủ đề quá dài, xin được rút ngắn như trên. Xin thưa, điều không thể phủ nhận là nếu không có đường mòn Hồ Chí Minh (ĐMHCM) sẽ không có ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống tại Miền Nam VN. 

Ác nhân Nguyễn Duy Cống sanh ngày 02.02.1917 tại Thanh Trì, Hà Nội và ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống chết ngày 01.10.2018. Di sản để lại là thành tích 80 năm tuổi đảng, kiên trì bảo vệ lập trường ông bà tiên tổ của những đảng viên cộng sản có nguồn gốc từ loài vượn cổ, không phải con người do tạo hóa sinh ra. ĐM là kẻ đi đầu trong nhóm cầm quyền cộng sản (NCQCS) tàn phá Miền Nam, nơi mà một thời từng làm gương cho sự phát triển so với các nước láng giềng, nơi mà Thủ tướng Lý Quang Diệu lúc sinh thời đã từng ước muốn Singapore được như vậy. Giờ thì VN sắp thua cả nước nghèo Châu Phi. Thực tế chỉ ra rằng, không có ĐM-HCM sẽ không có ĐM-Nguyễn Duy Cống cướp tài sản của đồng bào Miền Nam. Sẽ không có thảm họa Thuyền Nhân "đến cái cột đèn đi được cũng ra đi", không có cuộc chạy trốn cộng sản trường kỳ vẫn tiếp diễn từ sau 1975 kéo dài cho đến tận ngày nay 2018. 

Sự hãnh diện của người Miền Nam về "Hòn ngọc Viễn Đông" không còn ngay sau 1975. Và, tham vọng chia chác quyền lực của MTGPMN cùng trí thức thuộc thành phần thứ ba đã "hoàn thành sứ mệnh lịch sử" lộn ngược, của thứ gọi là "Chính phủ ba thành phần". Di sản của họ là danh sách những đợt tấn công, ám sát Giáo sư Nguyễn Văn Bông, người Việt Nam đầu tiên có bằng Công Pháp Quốc Tế, sắp làm Thủ tướng Miền Nam. Chiến tích của họ là đặt mìn xe đò, pháo kích trường học, gài bom nhà hàng, rạp hát, bưu điện v.v... Tất cả đều nhắm vào thường dân là chính. Dân lành là miếng mồi ngon để VC nằm vùng khủng bố, gieo rắc chết chóc và sợ hãi nhằm mục đích gây bất mãn giữa người dân với chính thể Việt Nam Cộng Hòa. Tạo tâm lý bất ổn để những tên cộng sản đầu trọc đội lốt Hòa thượng như Thích Trí Quang, Ni sư Huỳnh Liên và nhóm Ấn Quang tuyên truyền Chính phủ VNCH không bảo vệ được người dân. Các phóng viên đóng vai "Ký giả ăn mày" đánh phá Chính phủ cưu mang giáo dục họ thành ông này bà nọ, hành động vô ơn ăn cháo đái bát được cộng sản trả công bằng "Ký giả ăn mày thật" đến tận bây giờ. Nhìn vào những phóng viên bị rút thẻ nhà báo vì viết bài HCM có vợ, phóng viên bị đi tù, bị tạt axit vì chống tham nhũng như nhà báo Trần Quang Thành, hoặc các trang báo bị đình bản vì đăng tin bất lợi cho đảng. Hẳn họ đã mãn nguyện việc ký giả đã ăn mày thật. Nhà báo mà chỉ được viết, nói những gì có lợi cho đảng dù phải nói láo, không được nói thật những bất công trong xã hội, không được đưa tin bảo vệ Dân oan trên khắp cả nước trước cường quyền địa phương, giống như được đảng cho ăn nhưng cấm ị. Chất thải không có lối thoát tồn ứ lâu ngày buộc phải lộn ngược trào lên trên. 

Đọc hồi ký Trương Như Tảng, Lý Quý Chung v.v..., để thấy những tên ĂCQGTMCS cùng những ai chống phá Chính phủ Việt Nam Cộng Hòa tích cực nhất lại là những tên bỏ chạy trước nhất khi cộng sản chơi "ván bài lật ngửa" xóa sổ MTGPMN. Người ở lại thì nguyền rủa cộng sản ngu dốt như Bác sĩ Dương Quỳnh Hoa v.v. Vẫn còn đó câu nói của nhà văn Dương Thu Hương khi theo đoàn quân cộng sản Bắc Việt tiếp thu Sài Gòn, "Nền văn minh đã thua chế độ man rợ". Hay như Thi sĩ Phan Huy đã phải "Tạ ơn Miền Nam" đã cho ông thấy và nhận biết sự thật hoàn toàn trái ngược với những gì cộng sản tuyên truyền, khiến hàng triệu con dân Miền Bắc phải "Sanh Bắc Tử Nam" mà ông Bùi Tín gọi là "Cuộc chiến biệt vô tăm tích", chết bờ bụi, chết vì đói, vì bệnh tật, nằm chờ chết trên chiếc võng Trường Sơn, chết đủ kiểu dọc đường không ai chôn khi chưa kịp nghe và nhìn thấy "Như có bác Hồ trong ngày vui đại thắng" do nhạc sĩ nghịch tử nhân tai, con trai Phạm Quỳnh sáng tác. 

Đọc "Xương Trắng Trường Sơn - Đường đi không đến" của nhà văn Xuân Vũ, để thấy những số phận nghiệt ngã của một thời lầm lỡ, khi chưa kịp trở về với Chính Nghĩa Quốc Gia. Đọc "2000 Ngày Đêm Trấn Thủ Củ Chi" của Dương Đình Lôi. Xuân Vũ, để thấy "Địa đạo Củ Chi" chỉ là sản phẩm tưởng tượng, hoàn toàn không có thật. Đọc để thấy cộng sản bịp được thế giới bên ngoài và những ông Tây, bà Đầm ngửi phải mùi cộng sản bên nòng súng cao xạ để "Đến già mới chợt tỉnh" như Jane Fonda, tương tự Tống Văn Công "Từ theo cộng đến chống cộng" nhưng không chống "bác Hồ". Đọc để nghiệm ra sự phi lý "anh hùng tay không quật ngã trực thăng UH-1 của Mỹ", cũng như "danh hài" giáo sư Hoàng Chí Bảo tuyên xưng đức tin "bác Hồ nói nhuần nhuyễn 29 thứ tiếng, chưa tính tiếng Dân Tộc thiểu số". Và, cũng để thấy tướng Nguyễn Chí Thanh không phải chết tại Hà Nội vì đột quỵ. 

Theo nhà văn Xuân Vũ. Trong mật khu, Nguyễn Chí Thanh bị nhánh cây lớn rơi trúng đầu, bể hộp sọ chết tại chổ, trong khi những người đứng chung quanh không hề hấn gì. Không chắc xác Nguyễn Chí Thanh được đưa về Hà Nội trong bối cảnh khi đó, vì an ninh và trở ngại rất lớn trong việc di chuyển xác chết bằng xe đạp với quảng đường khá xa để đến sân bay. Thanh chết như vậy là không toàn thây, chết mất xác. Đọc để thấy "anh hùng Nguyễn Văn Trỗi" sập bẫy cộng sản, để lại người vợ trẻ đẹp Phan Thị Quyên cho tướng Nguyễn Chí Thanh đưa lên "giường cách mạng" trong chiến khu, để khu nam, khu nữ cùng sáng tác "tình ca bác đảng". Như khi xưa, Già Thu (bí danh HCM) dạy cô cháu yêu Út Trưng bài học vỡ lòng thế nào là bản năng chuyên chính vô sản của "cha già dân tộc", đã cho ra đời "cha trẻ dân tộc" Nông Đức Mạnh để hắn lộng ngôn trong một cuộc phỏng vấn "ở VN ai cũng là con cháu bác Hồ", khi trả lời phóng viên ngoại quốc hỏi thẳng "Thưa ngài, có phải ngài là con của chủ tịch Hồ Chí Minh?"

Còn rất nhiều ngôn chứng, từ những người từng theo cộng sản dù đã thức tỉnh hoặc thức nhưng chưa tỉnh hẳn, nói về tình đồng chí sau hậu trường chính trị của triều đại cộng sản. Riêng cuốn sách "Bên thắng cuộc" của T/g Huy Đức - Trương Huy Sang, người viết xin được bình luận ở một bài viết khác khi có dịp, về mức độ khả tín của quyển sách, căn cứ vào sở trường viết lách tiền hậu bất nhất của chính Huy Đức. Cũng như ông Bùi Tín lúc cuối đời vẫn phản đối ai cho HCM là đóng kịch khi bày tỏ tình cảm với nhi đồng và cuộc sống giản dị của "Bác". Chúng tôi tôn trọng người đã khuất, nhưng sự thật lịch sử phải được đặt về đúng vị trí của nó. Không ai được phép đứng trước, đứng trên lịch sử, không ai có quyền viết theo cảm tính thắng và thua, bởi lịch sử không chỉ căn cứ vào sự thành bại trong cuộc chiến. 

Lịch sử phải được viết bằng công tâm của người chính trực dựa trên nền tảng của sự thật. Và, xin đừng tham vọng viết sử quan chỉ để khẳng định bút danh, hay thỏa mãn tính hiếu kỳ của bạn đọc. Càng không nên viết sử chỉ có 30% là sự thật, 70% là giả dối như sử đảng cộng sản. Về "huyễn thoại" ĐMHCM và đồng chí Trần Dân Tiên ra sao, người viết xin dành cho phần 5, tiếp theo phần 4 ĐMHCM - Đường "Bác" đi trùng điệp bất nhân. Bài viết này chủ ý đề cập tên đầu sỏ cộng sản Nguyễn Phú Trọng vì sự hung hiểm của một tên thái thú quy phục Tàu cộng, biến VN thành một tỉnh của Tàu. Cũng như những tên cộng sản đã chết như ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống, Trần Đại Quang. Bởi nó cho thấy những nghịch lý và những tại họa do cộng sản phủ chụp lên đầu Dân Tộc Việt Nam. 

ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống - Tên cộng sản khét tiếng cướp tài sản, đẩy hàng triệu người Miền Nam ra biển sau 1975 

Thiến lợn, là một nghề lương thiện tương tự như thiến bò, thiến ngựa, thiến chó, không có gì xấu. Tuy có thể làm giống đực kinh hoàng, hồn phi phách tán khi nghe tiếng thét đau đớn của chúng, nhất là đối với những ai giàu trí tưởng tượng, không may cưới nhằm mụ vợ như người viết. Chẳng ai muốn trich ngang lý lịch Đỗ Mười nếu hắn không tàn ác. Cổ kim đông tây, nhân cách con người tuy hình thành từ giáo dục, nhưng không hẳn chỉ căn cứ vào bằng cấp, học hàm, học vị và vị trí của họ trong xã hội để nhận định tư cách con người. Tín chỉ vượt trên tất cả mọi bằng cấp là lòng nhân đạo, sự thật và lẽ phải. Thật thiển cận khi nghĩ thắng là anh hùng, thua là hèn nhát. Người công chính không lấy thành bại để luận anh hùng. Nền tảng của sự thật phải căn cứ vào chính nghĩa hoặc phi nghĩa, khi nói về cuộc chiến tranh Nam Bắc tại VN. Phải phân biệt rõ nạn nhân (VNCH) bị đồng minh bội ước cắt viện trợ khí tài, buộc phải tự vệ trước thủ phạm (Cộng sản Bắc Việt) hiếu chiến và khát máu được hậu thuẩn mạnh mẽ của khối cộng sản QT. Vi phạm Hiệp Định Paris 1973, dốc toàn quân tấn công bằng vũ lực để xâm lược Miền Nam trước sự im lặng hèn nhát của Mỹ và LHQ thời đó. 

Trong bối cảnh như vậy, VNCH không chỉ chống trả cộng sản Bắc Việt với kho đạn trống rỗng, kho xăng cạn kiệt mà phải chiến đấu với toàn khối cộng sản, với vũ khí hạn hẹp, họ đã chiến đấu bằng ý chí và tinh thần Dân Tộc yêu chuộng tự do. Tiếc thay, VNCH đã thất bại và mất nước, họ đã thua cuộc chiến cay đắng bằng những nghiệt ngã, bằng sự miệt thị và ngoảnh mặt của chính đồng minh từng tuyên bố sát cánh bên họ. Người Lính VNCH đã vắt cạn sức lực của mình, dùng đến giọt máu sau cùng để bảo vệ Miền Nam. Họ bị cộng sản trả thù cách hèn hạ làm hàng trăm ngàn Quân Dân Cán Chính VNCH đã chết trong tù cải tạo. Con em họ không được vào đại học vì lý lịch "Ngụy quyền", gia đình họ bị cộng sản cướp đoạt nhà cửa và tài sản, bị buộc phải đi lên vùng rừng thiêng, nước độc mà cộng sản gọi là "kinh tế mới", chưa có số thống kê nào cho thấy dù chỉ là dự đoán, bao nhiều người đã vùi thây đất lạnh, bao nhiêu người tự tử vì bị cướp hết tài sản. Chỉ có người ngoại cuộc, những kẻ nhẫn tâm mới quay mặt với những đoạn trường của người dân Miền Nam phải gánh chịu sự trả thù tàn độc, xuất phát từ mặc cảm thua sút về mọi mặt, của những bộ đội trong suốt cuộc chiến, vật bất ly thân chỉ có khẩu AK, dép râu và nón cối. 

Bốn mươi ba năm sau tháng tư đen tối gọi là Ngày Quốc Hận, người dân trên cả nước, không riêng gì Miền Nam vẫn tiếc nuối thời VNCH về an sinh xã hội, về kinh tế thị trường, về tự do báo chí và trên hết là quyền được làm người đúng nghĩa. Ngược lại nhóm cầm quyền cộng sản bị đại đa số người dân khinh ghét, thậm chí căm hận vì bản chất xảo quyệt, gian ác của nó. Vậy ai là anh hùng và kẻ hèn, xin tùy quý Bạn đọc lượng định. Với người viết, tên bụi đời trần trụi của hai chế độ, thằng du đảng hoàn lương nghèo hèn, ít học, quyết lấy Tinh Thần VNCH, tấm gương hy sinh và lòng can đảm cũng như sự Trung Tín của QLVNCH làm kim chỉ Nam cho hành động hướng thiện, là khí cụ bình an để chống cộng sản triệt để. Bất chấp những con sâu làm rầu nồi canh, những kẻ vô ơn trở cờ phản bạn, bội ước lời thề của quân nhân VNCH đã hèn nhát đánh phá một chính thể đã không còn. Nhưng, người ơi xin chớ quên, "Tàn dư Mỹ Ngụy" vẫn mãi mãi thắm đẫm tự tình Dân Tộc. 

Và, cũng thật ngớ ngẩn cho ai nghĩ "Bên nào thắng nhân dân đều bại", hoặc như ông tiến sĩ luật Cù Huy Hà Vũ trả lời trong cuộc hội luận về chiến tranh VN vừa qua do LHQ tổ chức, "bất luận thế nào thì VN cũng đã thống nhất" (!?) dựa vào lời nói của Hồ Chí Minh, "Nước VN là một. Dân Tộc VN là một, sông có thể cạn, núi có thể mòn nhưng chân lý ấy không bao giờ thay đổi". Lời Hồ nói có vẻ hay, nhưng thực tế cho thấy VN chỉ thống nhất về mặt địa lý. Vì lẽ, núi đã thành núi trọc, hàng trăm ngàn héc ta rừng đầu nguồn đã thành căn cứ địa của Tàu cộng được NCQCS cho thuê với cái giá rẻ mạt gần thế kỷ. Sông, biển đã bị ô nhiễm trầm trọng. Quần đảo Hoàng Sa, Trường Sa bị giặc Tàu chiếm đóng. Ải Nam Quan, Thác Bản Giốc trôi qua tận nước Tàu. Hãy mở lòng, mở trí để thấy Dân tộc Việt Nam chưa bao giờ là một, kể từ Việt Minh cướp Chính phủ Trần Trọng Kim. Chưa bao giờ đảng cộng sản có sự đồng thuận từ người dân. Ý đảng luôn đi ngược lòng dân, luôn mạo danh nhân dân để che đậy hành động bán nước. Làm sao Dân Tộc Việt Nam có thể nên một khi cộng sản vẫn độc tài toàn trị. Làm sao tận dụng được sức dân trong và ngoài nước khi sự kỳ thị người ngoài đảng bằng lý lịch đến những ba đời. Làm sao Dân Tộc VN có thể nên một khi quan chức cộng sản khi sống chỉ tàn phá, gây tội ác, khi chết xây lăng mộ thật to và Dân nghèo lúc chết phải bó chiếu đem chôn? 

ĐM thiến lợn đã có thể là anh nhà quê cục mịch, với bản mặt chà bá nhưng lương thiện, đã không gây tội ác với đồng bào VN nếu hắn không theo cộng sản. Người Miền Bắc hẳn không xa lạ hành động đánh tư sản sau khi Việt Minh cướp chính phủ Trần Trọng Kim. Khi hết thời hạn cho người dân lựa chọn ra đi hay ở lại Hà Nội sau Hiệp Định Genève 1954. Những ai quyết định ở lại mới biết thế nào là chuyên chính vô sản, đấu tranh giai cấp trong chế độ XHCN. Những nhà tư sản nghe lời Việt Minh cam kết bảo vệ tài sản, chỉ khi ấy mới biết bị cộng sản lừa thì đã quá muộn, điển hình như ông Thẩm Hoàng Tín, một nhà tư sản giàu có tương tự bà Nguyễn Thị Năm, được cộng sản viết giấy bảo đảm tài sản. 

Tiếc thay, ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống lại cầm chịch, tịch thu tất cả những gì nó muốn chỉ bằng cảm tính ganh ghét, có khi không cần đựa theo tiêu chuẩn nào cả. Khi ông Thẩm Hoàng Tín bị kê biên tài sản, ông quyết định tìm gặp HCM để nhắc lại lời Hồ đã hứa, Hồ Chí Minh đập bàn và quát "đồng chí nào dám làm như vậy, đưa đồng chí ấy đến đây". Khi người chịu trách nhiệm tịch thu tài sản Thẩm Hoàng Tín có mặt. HCM lập lại câu hỏi "Ai cho phép đồng chí làm như vậy?". Trả lời, "Thưa Hồ chủ tịch, tôi chỉ làm theo ý nhân dân ạ". HCM bảo "Thế à, nếu là quyết định của nhân dân thì... tôi thua rồi". Sự tráo trở lật lọng, ăn cháo đái bát của Hồ dài như cuộc đời bất minh của nó, cho thấy lòng biết ơn và sự chung thủy của Hồ dù là bản năng còn thua loài chó. 

Với người Dân Miền Nam, đa số không hiểu gì về bản chất cộng sản. Họ chỉ sợ VC nằm vùng khủng bố đặt mìn, pháo kích vào thường dân như thượng dẫn. Chỉ đến khi người giàu có bị cộng sản ném ra đường với hai bàn tay trắng, đẩy lên xe chở lên rừng để làm "kính tế mới", được cấp cho cái chòi không có vách, chỉ có cái nóc bằng lá với vài tháng gạo chống đói, cũng là lúc ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống "nặn" ra Lý Mỹ dắt cộng sản về nhà khảo của, tịch thu tài sản của đấng sinh thành để được làm "con người mới XHCN", để được đeo băng đỏ nơi cánh tay, thứ "cách mạng 30.04" dân nguyền rủa mấy chục năm vẫn chưa nguôi, tương tự như Dư luận viên trẻ dại, sản phẩm của nghành tuyên giáo ngày nay. 

Những nghịch tử trung với "Bác" ác với mẹ cha, đâu chỉ có Lý Mỹ. Xuân Diệu từng lôi ông bà giáo Ngô Xuân Thu cũng chính là cha mẹ đẻ của hắn ra đấu tố thời CCRĐ "Gởi vợ chồng thằng Thu, rằng chúng bây là lũ quốc thù". Trường Chinh (Đặng Xuân Khu) lấy roi quất mả bố mẹ đẻ, nhạc sĩ Phạm Tuyên ca ngợi hung thủ đã giết cha là ông Phạm Quỳnh và nhiều nữa những đứa con quên nguồn cội. Không phải tất cả đều trẻ dại và ngu dốt như Lý Mỹ, họ là những trí thức được đào tạo thời Pháp thuộc, được du học bên Tây nhưng vì mê muội và hám danh, về nước theo cộng sản để cuối cùng phải chịu cảnh sống dở, chết dở đến cuối đời như luật sư Nguyễn Mạnh Tường phải "viết chui, câu trộm và rượu chịu". Lời than vãn của đấng sinh thành không mảy may làm họ thức tỉnh. Thử đọc một đoạn thân phụ của triết gia Trần Đức Thảo: 

"Về như vậy là mày tự giết mày rồi! Mà cũng là giết cả mẹ mày và tao nữa. Thảo ơi! Phải chi mà mày học được cái nghề như thợ nề, thợ máy, thợ mộc gì.. thì đỡ khổ cho tao biết mấy… Chúng nó đã xúi mày đi vào chỗ chết. Có là điên mới đi theo chúng nó. Mày về đây là mày giết mày giết cả tao đấy Thảo ơi là Thảo ơi!". 

Và, cảm nghĩ của Trần Đức Thảo khi đặt chân vào Sài gòn: 

"Mới đặt chân xuống cái thủ đô của miền Nam này, mọi sự đã làm tôi kinh ngạc. Qua bao nhiêu năm chiến tranh gian khổ mà sao Sài Gòn nó lại khang trang hiện đại như vậy? Tôi cứ ngỡ cả miền Nam đói khổ vì bị Mỹ-Ngụy bóc lột đến nỗi miền Bắc đã phải ‘cắn hạt gạo làm tư’ để cứu giúp miền Nam cơ mà.. Và mọi người ở đây nói năng cởi mở thoải mái như vậy? Ngay những cán bộ Đảng ở đây cũng có thái độ tự do quá. Họ đãi đằng, giễu cợt tôi, coi tôi cứ như anh mán, anh mường ở rừng mới được về thành phố. Phải nói thẳng ra là có một điều của Sài Gòn đã làm tôi bàng hoàng đến cùng cực." 

Cay đắng hơn nữa. Từ Sài Gòn, sau khi nhận chiếc vé không khứ hồi, một hình thức lưu đày mà cộng sản gọi là "trục xuất", giống như bản án lưu đày các Tù Nhân Lương Tâm ngày nay. Trước lúc lìa đời, Trần Đức Thảo không tin các "đồng chí" cộng sản, ông trao lại "Những lời trăn trối" cho người xa lạ không quen biết trước đó để có chút tiền còm, thật đau đớn cho một sĩ phu Bắc Hà. Giá như Trần Đức Thảo sống tại Miền Nam, hẳn ông đã cống hiến cho đời nhiều hơn là phải "khóc" cho kiếp người, "sinh bất phùng thời' lại chính là lựa chọn nơi để sống của chính ông. Những tinh hoa đất Bắc lụi tàn không phải họ bất tài, chính cái vòng kim cô Mác-Lê đã vùi đời họ xuống bùn được thực hiện bởi những tên cộng sản ngu dốt nhưng cao ngạo, những tâm hồn què quặt lại cố tỏ ra thánh thiện. 

Trí thức XHCN đã vậy thì ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống, một tên thiến lợn ngu dốt được chọn để đánh tư sản là thủ đoạn nham hiểm của đảng cộng sản trong việc hành ác cướp của giết người. Càng ngu dốt càng được cộng sản tin tưởng, giống như Tập Cận Bình sử dụng tên cộng sản đầu sỏ Nguyễn Phú Trọng ngày nay. Chúng hoàn toàn không có viễn kiến để nhận định một vấn đề, nhất là đối với chủ quyền đất nước và xa hơn là sự tồn vong của Dân Tộc. Xin được trình bày ở bài viết khác, để chia sẻ thêm những tên bồi bút "ưu thời mẫn thế" kiếm ăn trên chính nhân cách làm người của nó. 

ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống đã chết, nhưng tội ác của hắn là ngàn năm lưu xú. Ngày nào còn người Miền Nam, bao gồm hàng triệu đồng bào Miền Bắc di cư 1954, dù sống trong hay ngoài nước, ngày đó còn nguyền rủa ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống, và nhóm cầm quyền cộng sản (NCQCS). Ngày nào các tượng đài Tưởng Niệm Thuyền Nhân còn hiện diện khắp nơi trên thế giới, nơi có sự hiện diện của Người Việt Tỵ Nạn, ngày đó vẫn nhớ ĐMHCM đường bác đi trùng điệp bất nhân, NCQCS cùng tất cả những tên thủ ác dù còn sống hay đã chết. Xin đừng giả nhân nghĩa kêu gọi "hòa hợp hoà giải" với cộng sản để xây dựng đất nước. Đừng đánh lận con đen rằng hãy để Hồ Chí Minh và những tên cộng sản đã chết cho lịch sử phán xét. Đừng giả đui, giả điếc để không nghe, không thấy từ trẻ ngồi bô cho đến sinh viên đại học bị buộc phải tung hê những tên đồ tể của nhân loại, bị buộc phải tôn kính tên Hồ Chí Minh giết người diệt chủng. 

Nếu thật sự có lòng nhân đạo, đừng đánh trống thổi kèn cầu siêu cho ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống, Trần Đại Quang chết rồi vẫn di họa như Hồ Chí Minh. Và, những tên cộng sản đầu trọc đừng ra ngả tư đường hay lên sân khấu để cầu cho Quốc thái Dân an giống như Tú bà nói chuyện trinh tiết. Hãy âm thầm lui vào bóng tối để cầu nguyện, hãy than khóc lãnh tụ nếu muốn thương tiếc những tên đồ tể. Đừng mượn những cái chết của cộng sản để mị dân và trục lợi, đừng làm ô uế cửa Phật bằng bầy quỷ đỏ khoát ao cà sa. Càng đình đám càng khiến người dân phỉ nhổ. Hãy để cho chúng "sống cùng lịch sử" như bộ phim Võ Nguyên Giáp bán vé không ai mua phải chiếu miễn phí. Những tên thương vay khóc mướn ở đâu, sao không diễn cho xong vở tuồng khóc cùng đại tướng? 

Nếu thật sự có lòng nhân đạo, với lòng thành, hãy tổ chức cầu siêu cho hàng ngàn đồng bào bị cộng sản thảm sát tại Huế Mậu Thân 1968, hàng trăm ngàn đồng bào thà làm mồi cho cá mập còn hơn phải sống với cộng sản, họ đã chọn cái chết Tự do còn hơn sống nô lệ. Hãy cầu siêu cho hàng trăm ngàn Quân Dân Cán Chính Miền Nam bị thủ tiêu mất tích trong tù cải tạo, và hơn hai triệu người VN phải chết vì cuộc chiến phi nghĩa do cộng sản Bắc Việt gây ra vì căn bệnh vĩ cuồng của Hồ Chí Minh "dắt năm châu đến đại đồng"

Nếu thật sự có lòng nhân đạo hãy nghĩ đến những nạn nhân chết tức tưởi vì bị ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống và đồng bọn cộng sản cướp hết tài sản. Hãy đặt mình vào vị trí của nạn nhân và thân nhân đang giàu có bổng trắng tay sau ba lần đổi tiền, để bần cùng hóa nhân dân, hãy đặt mình vào vai những người vợ để lũ con nheo nhóc đói khát ở nhà, để đi thăm nuôi chồng cải tạo vì sự trả thù hèn hạ, hãy nhìn những người Mẹ khóc vĩnh biệt con lần cuối chỉ vì anh ta là Ngụy quân, Ngụy quyền. Và, đừng bao giờ quên ĐM Nguyễn Duy Cống. Tố Hữu làm cả nước suýt chết đói vì sự ngu ác của chúng. 

Nếu còn lương tri hãy biết căm hờn giặc Tàu và tên thái thú Nguyễn Phú Trọng đẩy VN vào hiểm họa Bắc Thuộc, đừng cầu siêu mà hãy khóc cho Dân Tộc Việt Nam chưa thoát ách cộng sản, khóc cho Dân oan trên khắp đất nước đang màn trời chiếu đất, khóc cho đồng bào bốn tỉnh Miền Trung phải ly tán vì thảm họa Formosa, khóc cho Dân nghèo chết không có tiền mua quan tài, phải bó chiếu đem chôn. Khóc to lên, khóc cho thật nhiều vào hỡi những tên giả nhân nghĩa. Khóc vì quê hương khốn khổ đọa đày cộng sản, khóc cho hết nước mắt, khóc cho trôi tất cả những điều giả dối, may ra sót lại chút tình người.

Singapore Unbound issued a statement today strongly condemning the conviction of artist-activist Seelan Palay for holding a piece of art outside Parliament in 2017. The courts fined Mr Palay S$2,000 for his artistic demonstration which it ruled to have caused public disorder. He refused to pay, so consequently, he was sentenced to two weeks' imprisonment. …

          Comment on MBTA Awards Signal Upgrade Contract for Red and Orange Lines by Sean Lynn-Jones      Cache   Translate Page      
This is excellent news. It's great that the Red and Orange Lines will have new signal systems and new fleets of subway cars. It is disappointing, however, to see that this investment will not produce headways (the time between trains) better than 3 or 4.5 minutes. On the London Underground's Victoria Line, trains operate with 100-second headways. The Moscow Metro apparently has 95-second headways. See the following accounts of how London reduced headways to 100 seconds: http://www.railtechnologymagazine.com/Interviews/victoria-line-pinnacle-of-excellence-in-railway-engineering https://www.standard.co.uk/news/transport/victoria-line-trains-now-run-every-100-seconds-making-it-the-second-most-frequent-line-in-the-world-a3544946.html https://www.londonreconnections.com/2017/ninety-second-railway-making-victoria-frequent-metro-world/ Note that Singapore's subway system operates with 2-minute headways: https://medium.com/from-the-red-line/36-just-a-number-21011a9ff9a6 The difference between, for example, a 100-second headway and a 3-minute (180 second) headway may not sound like much, but it translates into being able to run 36 trains per hour instead of only 20--almost doubling the rush-hour capacity of the line. Even if the MBTA could only achieve 2-minute headways, as in Singapore, that would mean a 50% increase in trains per hour on the Red Line, compared to the planned 3-minute headways--30 trains per hour instead of 20. For the Orange Line, 2-minute headways would mean being able to operate more than twice as many trains than would be possible with 4.5-minute headways--30 trains per hour instead of 16. Over the next 50 years, Boston's population and transit ridership will increase. The MBTA should "think big" when it upgrades its signal technology and expands its fleet of subway cars. If we don't invest enough in new systems now, we won't have the capacity when we need it.

          Work in the CBD? Use Waitrr to Beat Long Lines and Save More Money!      Cache   Translate Page      
I love working in the Central Business District (CBD) of Singapore - the food options are limitless (there's something for everyone and at every price point)! However, one of the things that drive me crazy is the long lines during lunch. Seriously, walking up to any restaurant or stall between 12:00PM and 1:30PM is painful. Thanks to a friend, I have recently discovered Waitrr which allows me to pre-order my food, make payment via the app and then pick it up at the location without having to queue. If you have not tried the app before, using my referral code 'MAR94817' will give you S$3 off your first order!

          Malaysians subsidising foreigners      Cache   Translate Page      
PETALING JAYA: The failure of Malaysia Airports Berhad to implement the RM73 Passenger Service Charge (PSC) is costing Malaysians who continue to subsidise foreigners in the millions as they fly out of klia2 to non-Asean destinations.

The Malaysia Aviation Commission (Mavcom) had introduced equalisation of the Passenger Services Charge PSC to RM73 for non-Asean destinations from Jan 1.

But this has yet to be implemented as MAB continues to charge the previous rate of RM50.

An aviation source said about 80% of those flying to non-Asean destinations out of klia2 are foreigners and that PSC is paid by the passengers and it has nothing to do with the ticket fare.

"The question that must be answered is why should Malaysians continue to subsidise foreigners especially when the government is working hard to save money.

"At the end of the day the failure to implement the PSC would mean that either money will have to come out of government coffers or MAB will pay the government lower fees, either way, it is the public that will suffer," the source said.

The source said the PSC was gazetted in Dec last year and was supposed to be implemented in Jan.

It was deferred to March but has yet to be implemented.

"From Jan to Aug this year over 5.7 million people had flown to non-Asean destinations from klia2, based on RM73 PSC. This works out to about RM416 million but with airlines collecting only RM50, it is about RM285 million.

"The question is who is paying the balance of RM131 million. The airport operator has an agreement with the government to collect the money from the government, therefore it is the taxpayer who has to cover this burden," the source said.

The aviation source said one the reason for the failure to implement the charges is due to the fact that some airlines had claimed that it would affect their passengers and cost.

The source pointed out that these same airlines that operated out of Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and other Asean countries don't mind having their passengers paying the full PSC charges although its higher than klia2.

The source said Bangkok's Don Mueang International Airport, which is older than kila2, charges a higher PSC rate than klia2 but Malaysian airlines that operate from there have not asked for preferential privileges, unlike the demands that they have made here.

The source was also highly critical of MAB for failing to force airlines to collect the full PSC as it had been gazetted at the end of last year and was supposed to be implemented on March 1 this year.

The failure to implement a gazetted law is akin to breaking the law but none of those involved "seem to care", said the source.

"To claim that klia2 is not a greater airport is wrong as it is equipped with a dedicated 4km runway (Runway 3) with a 2.2 km separation distance from Runway 2 at KLIA.

"This allows simultaneous aircraft take-off and landing operations at KLIA, the first of its kind in the region," the source said.

The source said the failure to collect the full PSC would mean that Malaysians will have to continue to subsidise foreigners using klia2.

          How to shop for the dress which fits your body shape      Cache   Translate Page      

.

 

Being a woman has extraordinary benefits, although it often comes with an eternal dilemma of whether this is the right look for me, what colour make up matches my eyes, am I too fat for this dress and does my ass look big in this. In the world of design, we dedicate special attention to the shape of things, so why not make your own body a subject of interest and inspiration?

 

Fashion design is a well full of incredible insights about visual components of our lives, the world where clothing comes with its own philosophy. The key to save time on shopping and spend more time enjoying a spa treatment or working without pressure is to acknowledge and embrace all of your body curves.

 

Look at yourself in the mirror, explore the lines of your body and let the sexiness of it overwhelm you with confidence, creativity and inspiration. Discover more about your body type by asking yourself the following questions:

 

  1. Are my shoulders or bust broader than my overall body?

 

If so, then the suitable dress for you would be the one matching an inverted triangle body shape, where your upper body is broader than the lower part of the body.

 

The key for creating a balanced, hourglass body shape, is to wear an off-shoulder or v-neck dresses style, to draw attention to the hip section of the body.

 

Perfect choice for your would be A-line, Asymmetrical, Empire or carefully places details to the lower part of the dress, which helps the visual balance of your body curves.

 

  1. Are my hips or waistline broader than my bust?

 

If this is the case with you, then we are looking for a triangle or pear body shape styles, and dresses which fit this body type. To achieve the same hourglass figure, the attention should be brought from your hips to your upper busts area.

 

The suggested dress styles for you would be scoop neck, cold-shoulder or off-the-shoulder styles. It is also recommended that with these dresses you pick the neckline accessories, or that the dress had designed details on the upper part, to drag the attention up from your hips.

 

  1. Are my body curves distinctive, proportionately distributed?

 

If not, then your body doesn't have a clearly defined waistline, and your body type is either an oval apple or a straight banana body shape. The perfect dress you should wear creates the illusion of a defined waistline and achieves the hourglass effect.

 

Dresses you should pick are designed with belted or fitted waist, preferably A-line dress or Sheath dress.

 

Ready for your best online shopping experience ever?

 

Now that you know more about your body type, it's time to find that perfect dress! When shopping online, we have to pay special attention to the size chart. You should bare in mind that different brands and different stores have their own specific fitting size chart, which you should study carefully instead of shopping carelessly.

 

When shopping online, shop with a reputable online fashion boutique, such as Le Contour, place where you can find stunning dresses by emerging fashion designers. They offer a variety of clothing you can wear for both formal and non-formal occasions, dresses with a soul and of innovative designs.

 

Shop for the dresses you will love, the dresses that suit you, the dresses you will wear and not exhibit in your closet. Wear the dresses that describe you, highlight your personality, turn heads when you walk down the street.

 

Shop with Le Contour - fashion boutique with free worldwide delivery from Singapore. Discover more about them a reputable online fashion boutique, on Facebook or Instagram.

          Crazy Rich Asians can teach us about the region's economic rise | Kenneth Rogoff      Cache   Translate Page      

The surprise hit movie should lead to many more such stories being told by Hollywood

In the surprise hit movie Crazy Rich Asians (based on a 2013 Kevin Kwan novel), a New York University economics professor (Rachel), travels with her boyfriend to Singapore to meet his family. There, she learns, apparently for the first time, that her significant other (Nick) is heir to one of Asia’s largest fortunes and has a mother intent on making sure her son does not marry a commoner, Asian American or not.

Partly because of its (terrific) all-Asian cast (an extreme rarity), and partly because it recalls earlier eras of great romantic comedies, the film has caused a lot of buzz. Perhaps there will even be a long overdue Oscar for Michelle Yeoh (from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), who plays the steely but loving mother.

Tổng bí thư làm Chủ tịch nước: Góc nhìn quyền lực



Khi đề cao sự thống nhất và tập trung quyền lực nhà nước thì “Đức trị” là chiến lược kiểm soát quyền lực luôn được ưu tiên. Bản chất của triết lý “Đức trị” là đề cao sự gương mẫu, đức độ của các nhà lãnh đạo – quản lý khu vực công, tức là khả năng tự kiểm soát hành vi của cá nhân, báo Vietnamnet có bài phân tích về vấn đề này.
Tổng bí thư làm chủ tịch nước
Hội nghị TW8 khóa 12 đồng thuận giới thiệu Tổng bí thư làm ứng viên cho vị trí Chủ tịch nước đang trở thành sự kiện thu hút sự quan tâm đặc biệt của dư luận.
Từ góc nhìn quyền lực, đảm nhiệm cùng lúc hai vị trí lãnh đạo Đảng cầm quyền và lãnh đạo Nhà nước sẽ giúp một cá nhân trở thành nhà lãnh đạo tối cao của quốc gia, với mức độ ảnh hưởng rất lớn do hội tụ được cả quyền lực chính trị và quyền lực công (nhà nước). Chính điều này khiến "kiểm soát quyền lực" lại trở thành một chủ đề được thảo luận rộng rãi kể từ sau khi Đảng cộng sản Việt Nam ban hành nghị quyết TW4 khóa 12 về vấn đề kiểm soát quyền lực.
Nhìn rộng ra cả về không gian và thời gian, sự thống nhất của quyền lực nhà nước không đơn giản là ý muốn chủ quan của một cá nhân hay tổ chức nào đó mà là một truyền thống chính trị đã tồn tại lâu đời ở nhiều quốc gia Đông Á như Nhật Bản, Indonesia, Triều Tiên, hay Trung Quốc và Việt Nam. Chính đặc trưng này khiến cho thực tế thể chế chính trị khu vực Đông Á rất khác so với mô hình thể chế tản quyền (điển hình là Mỹ) hay cấu trúc liên hợp (điển hình là nước Anh). Vì thế, chiến lược về kiểm soát quyền lực cũng cần được đặt trong logic thể chế đặc thù.
Sự thống nhất của quyền lực nhà nước
Đến nay, đặc trưng thể chế phổ biến của 16 quốc gia Đông Á vẫn là mô hình nhà nước thống nhất, với quyền lực tối thượng tập trung ở chính quyền trung ương. Không có sự tách bạch rạch ròi giữa cơ quan Lập pháp và Hành pháp; chính quyền TW kiểm soát chặt chẽ chính quyền địa phương cũng như các hoạt động đối nội và đối ngoại.
Nhà nước là một thực thể phức tạp, bao gồm nhiều thành tố bộ phận cấu thành. Để bảo đảm sự thống nhất của quyền lực nhà nước, sự gắn kết giữa các thành tố bộ phận tạo nên cấu trúc nhà nước được đề cao. Các cơ quan nhà nước vận hành theo chức năng và nhiệm vụ được giao; không một chủ thể nào có thể tuyên bố tư cách độc lập đại diện cho quyền lực nhà nước như ở các quốc gia theo mô hình liên bang.
Sự tồn tại của một chủ thể hạt nhân nắm giữ và điều phối quyền lực nhà nước là đặc trưng thứ hai của các quốc gia Đông Á.

Khai mạc Hội nghị lần thứ tám Ban Chấp hành Trung ương Đảng Cộng sản Việt Nam khóa XII
Đó có thể là Vua hoặc nhánh Hành pháp trong cấu trúc chính quyền thời phong kiến, cá nhân Sukarno và ê kíp chính trị của ông ở Indonesia, liên minh giữa Đảng LDP và tầng lớp hành chính kỹ trị ở Nhật, Đảng PAP ở Singapore, hay Đảng Cộng Sản ở Trung Quốc và Việt Nam thời hiện đại. Nằm ở đỉnh chóp trong cấu trúc quyền lực theo trật tự thứ bậc, chủ thể hạt nhân quyền lực có được sự chính danh tự nhiên do luôn gắn liền với nhà nước. Bởi thế, sứ mệnh của chủ thể đó là bảo đảm sự thống nhất về quyền lực nhằm hướng đến tính hiệu lực và hiệu quả của quản trị nhà nước.
Sự thống nhất về quyền lực nhà nước và sự tồn tại của một chủ thể hạt nhân quyền lực là một truyền thống chính trị khá bền vững dựa trên các nền tảng văn hóa và thể chế lâu đời, được củng cố thêm bởi nhu cầu giành lại và bảo vệ nền độc lập quốc gia từ cuối thế kỷ 19, đầu thế kỷ 20 cũng như nhu cầu phát triển quốc gia từ nửa sau thế kỷ 20.
Khác với truyền thống duy lý — pháp lý phương Tây, người dân Đông Á nói chung, vốn chịu ảnh hưởng bởi triết lý Khổng giáo, quen với ý niệm về "nhà nước" (chứ không chỉ "chính quyền") và hạt nhân nắm giữ quyền lực nhà nước luôn được chấp nhận bởi lẽ người dân luôn đề cao vai trò của nhà nước, luôn tin rằng nhà nước sẽ chỉ làm điều tốt cho dân; các cơ quan nhà nước được lập ra là để lo cho cuộc sống của người dân.
Nói cách khác, sự chính danh của quyền lực nhà nước có liên quan mật thiết đến văn hóa và niềm tin chính trị của người dân chứ không nhất thiết phải dựa trên các quan niệm về quyền công dân hay các cơ sở pháp lý chặt chẽ (Hiến pháp) như ở nhiều quốc gia phương Tây hiện đại.
Thách thức lạm quyền
Một đặc điểm then chốt của quyền lực công (nhà nước) là khi cá nhân/tổ chức nắm giữ nó thì sẽ có cơ sở và khả năng hành động trên tư cách người khác. Chính điều này dẫn đến những lo ngại về nguy cơ lạm quyền của các chủ thể quyền lực công.
Ông Đinh La Thăng
© AFP 2018 / HOANG DINH NAM
Thực tế cho thấy lạm quyền là một nguy cơ luôn hiện hữu trong tất cả các mô hình thế chế, bất kể đó là cấu trúc "tản quyền" hay "tập quyền". Sự kiện "Sắc lệnh nhập cư" ở Mỹ, chiến dịch "Đả hổ diệt ruồi" ở Trung Quốc, hay các vụ khởi tố và bắt giữ các cựu Tổng thống Hàn Quốc và cựu thủ tướng Malaysia gần đây cho thấy chống lạm quyền là một nhu cầu phổ quát ở mọi quốc gia.
Hiển nhiên, cấu trúc tập trung quyền lực nhà nước theo truyền thống Đông Á tiềm ẩn nhiều nguy cơ hơn cho sự lạm quyền. Bởi lẽ, do quyền lực luôn được kiểm soát bởi một hạt nhân trung tâm nào đó, những cá nhân với tham vọng ích kỷ chỉ cần thao túng được trung tâm quyền lực đó thì sẽ có thể làm được những điều mà họ muốn. Đây cũng chính là nguyên do khiến dư luận nói chung quan tâm đặc biệt đến khả năng kiểm soát quyền lực, nhất là trong dài hạn, khi việc đảm nhiệm hai chức danh có thể trở thành hiện thực chính trị ở Việt Nam.
Kiểm soát quyền lực
Mỗi mô hình thể chế lại có những nguyên tắc kiểm soát quyền lực đặc trưng.

NHẬT BẮC
Trung ương đã giới thiệu Tổng bí thư Nguyễn Phú Trọng để Quốc hội bầu giữ chức vụ Chủ tịch nước CHXHCN Việt Nam tại kỳ họp thứ 6, Quốc hội khoá 14
Cấu trúc "tản quyền" đề cao sự phân tán quyền lực và các nguyên tắc cân bằng và kiểm soát lẫn nhau giữa các chủ thể quyền lực nhà nước. Tuy nhiên, sẽ không phù hợp nếu áp dụng máy móc quan niệm về kiểm soát quyền lực nêu trên vào các mô hình thể chế vốn có truyền thống đề cao sự thống nhất của quyền lực nhà nước, và cho phép sự tồn tại của một chủ thể hạt nhân giữ vai trò trung tâm quyền lực.
Bởi vậy, kiểm soát quyền lực trong một cấu trúc thể chế đề cao ý niệm nhà nước thống nhất cần được hiểu chính xác là "giám sát quyền lực" — theo nghĩa chủ thể trung tâm quyền lực nhà nước thực hiện các phản ứng nhằm bảo đảm sự nhất quán của cả hệ thống quyền lực, từ bên trong ra bên ngoài, từ hạt nhân đến bộ phận, từ TW xuống đến địa phương.
Ý tưởng này đã được triển khai tại Trung Quốc khi gần đây, "Ủy ban giám sát quốc gia"được thành lập và trở thành một thể chế nhà nước với chức năng cốt lõi là theo dõi, giám sát hệ thống công quyền để chống lạm quyền. Dù vậy, nguy cơ lạm quyền của một "Ủy ban quốc gia" như vậy và vấn đề kiểm soát quyền lực của chính Ủy ban đó khiến những người quan tâm nhất cũng phải thận trọng về khả năng học hỏi.

Thách thức kiểm soát quyền lực
Khi đề cao sự thống nhất và tập trung quyền lực nhà nước thì "đức trị" là chiến lược kiểm soát quyền lực luôn được ưu tiên. Bản chất của triết lý "đức trị" là đề cao sự gương mẫu, đức độ của các nhà lãnh đạo — quản lý khu vực công, tức là khả năng tự kiểm soát hành vi của cá nhân. Mỗi khi được bổ nhiệm vào các vị trí lãnh đạo — quản lý, cá nhân luôn được mong đợi sẽ là những tấm gương về tuân thủ các chuẩn mực để có thể thực hiện nhất quán các chiến lược, mục tiêu do hạt nhân quyền lực đề ra.
Không thể phủ nhận những vai trò nhất định của triết lý "đức trị" nhưng một thực tế hiện hữu là các hạt nhân quyền lực không thể chủ động kiểm soát hoàn toàn ý muốn hay lợi ích của các cá nhân nắm giữ quyền lực. Nói cách khác, khả năng kiểm soát quyền lực luôn bị động do phụ thuộc vào chủ quan cá nhân — vốn luôn bị chi phối bởi muôn vàn yếu tố mà trung tâm quyền lực không thể kiểm soát hết. Đây chính là hạn chế lớn nhất của triết lý "đức trị" với nguyên tắc cốt lõi là đề cao khả năng ‘tự kiểm soát hành vi".
Những giới hạn của triết lý "đức trị" khiến cho việc hoàn thiện quy trình lựa chọn cán bộ theo hướng xác lập "thể chế trọng người tài — Meritocracy" trở thành một hướng đi khả thi nhất trong chiến lược kiểm soát quyền lực, phù hợp với logic thể chế đề cao sự tập trung và thống nhất của quyền lực nhà nước. Theo đó, chủ thể giữ vai trò hạt nhân quyền lực của hệ thống nhà nước đứng trước thách thức làm sao phải có được quy trình phát hiện, đào tạo, lựa chọn, và sử dụng cán bộ chặt chẽ, hiệu quả để có thể chọn ra được những cá nhân "vừa Đức vừa Tài", với khả năng tự kiêm soát hành vi tốt nhất.
Thể chế trọng người tài là một phương án trả lời cho câu hỏi nêu trên. Đây là thực tế đã diễn ra và là một tác nhân chính dẫn đến thành công của nhiều quốc gia Đông Á như Nhật Bản, Singapore, Hàn Quốc, hay Trung Quốc. Thể chế trọng người tài sẽ thu hút và cho phép những người có năng lực phát huy tối đa khả năng để đóng góp cho nhà nước, qua đó bồi đắp và củng cố sự chính danh cũng như quyền uy của nhà nước và lực lượng giữ vai trò hạt nhân của quyền lực. Ngược lại, nếu không thiết lập được "thể chế trọng người tài" thì cấu trúc tập trung và nguyên tắc thống nhất quyền lực nhà nước sẽ dẫn đến rất nhiều thách thức.
Cụ thể hơn, bối cảnh Việt Nam hiện nay cho thấy mô hình "quy hoạch cán bộ" và việc giới hạn quyền lựa chọn trong một nhóm chọn lọc các nhà lãnh đạo tinh hoa nên được xem xét lại theo hướng "Mở" và "Tự Do" hơn. Nguyên tắc "Mở và Tự Do", dù chỉ trong một phạm vi được kiểm soát, cũng sẽ tạo cơ hội cho nhiều ứng viên hơn, giúp gia tăng sự cạnh tranh và tương tác của ứng viên, khiến các ứng viên bộc lộ rõ hơn để từ đó, các quyết định cuối cùng của chủ thể quyền lực sẽ có được cơ sở chính xác và khách quan hơn.

          Jericho Rosales is Dubbed the ‘Asian Drama King’ Because of These 5 Shows      Cache   Translate Page      
Jericho Rosales is known as one of the most sought-after actors in the Philippines with his award-winning performances in movies and TV. He has starred in some of the most popular teleseryes which are seen not only the country but also abroad. Jericho’s shows are some of the most widely distributed Philippine series across the globe, no wonder he has been dubbed the ‘Asian Drama King.’   Here are the five shows that made Jericho Rosales the ‘Asian Drama King.’   Pangako Sa ‘Yo (The Promise) “Pangako Sa ‘Yo” features a classic telenovela story of star-crossed lovers from different worlds, who must fight against all odds to stay together.

The series was so successful it spawned a remake in the Philippines and in Cambodia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THPEYIVjUG0   Dahil May Isang Ikaw (Destined Hearts) “Dahil May Isang Ikaw” is another Jericho-Kristine starrer, this time about competing lawyers turned lovers.

          Next meeting with Kim after midterm polls: Trump      Cache   Translate Page      

[USA], Oct 10 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump has said that he plans to hold the next meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after the midterm elections next month.

Trump is undertaking a whirlwind tour across the country to highlight his administration's achievements, which includes hosting the first-ever meeting with Kim in Singapore in June and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visits to North Korea for denuclearisation talks. He remarked, "I just can't leave now," The Hill reported.

During the previous meeting in Singapore, Kim and Trump agreed to work towards achieving denuclearisation in the Korean Peninsula, where the former expressed his commitment to abandon the country's nuclear weapons programme in exchange for "security guarantees".

On October 7, Pompeo had visited Pyongyang and held talks with the North Korean leader on laying the groundwork for the second summit between the latter and Trump and resuming the stalled denuclearisation talks between the two countries. The meeting was described as "good and productive". The two leaders agreed to hold the second meeting "at the earliest possible date".

While Pyongyang, on the one hand, repeatedly asserted that it has taken various steps to dismantle its nuclear weapons programme in exchange for a possible sanctions relief, the US,on the other hand, has reiterated that it will not lift the sanctions unless North Korea achieves "complete and fully verifiable denuclearisation".

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho had said at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly last month that there would be no unilateral denuclearisation without "any trust in the US and confidence in its own national security." (ANI)
