Tensions on the high seas as China and Taiwan stage military drills



Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to Taipei sparks further tensions on the high seas

China and Taiwan are playing a military game of cat and mouse as tensions on the high seas remain high.

It follows U.S. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi meeting with her Taiwanese counterparts in Taipei last week.

This visit infuriated China, as the nation regards the self-ruled island as its own territory.

Beijing has since responded by test launching ballistic missiles over Taiwan’s capital for the first time in history.

China and Taiwan each launched 10 warships in the Taiwan Strait, with some Chinese vessels crossing the unofficial buffer separating the two sides.

Speaking at a conference in Bangladesh, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi says his country’s actions are legitimate and reasonable, aimed at protecting China’s sacred sovereignty.

“It must be borne in mind that Taiwan is not a part of the United States – it is China’s territory”


Meanwhile, in the United States, former President Donald Trump called out Pelosi’s visit.

“What was she doing? She fails. The women brings chaos,” Trump said at a conservative conference in Dallas, Texas.

Former President Donald Trump pauses during the final remarks during Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas on Saturday, Aug. 6, 2022.

Trump continued, adding “[Pelosi] played right into [China’s] hands, because now they have an excuse to do whatever they’re doing”.

Trump was the star contributor at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday evening.

Human error sends the New York Stock Exchange tumbling

We’ve all made mistakes at the office from time to time, but spare a thought for one worker who may have single-handedly brought down the New York Stock Exchange with just one tiny error.

The mistake of one employee has wiped billions of dollars off the charts for some of the globe’s largest companies.

The individual reportedly triggered wild swings and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange.

A number of big brand names were caught up in the catastrophe. It included McDonald’s, Walmart, and Mobil.

The NYSE eventually came clean. Officials admitted the“root cause” of the screw-up was a “manual error” from a staff member in the backup data centre.

The employee accidentally left the system running.

That’s why some stocks behaved as if trading had already started, with no opening prices being set, sending the market into a meltdown. #trending #featured

Bipartisan outrage on Capitol Hill as politicians say the Biden administration is stonewalling their quest for answers

FBI Director Christopher Wray is speaking out for the first time after several batches of classified documents were discovered in U.S. President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home and Washington think tank office.

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.

Currently, both Biden and former President Donald Trump are facing special counsel investigations into their mishandling of classified documents—and just this week, former Vice President Mike Pence turned over classified documents to the DOJ.
