Rise Of The Kings Of The East – China Looks To Become Dominant World Power

Chinese President Xi Jinping opened the 19th Congress of the Communist Party in the Great Hall of the People near Tiananmen Square on October 18th with bold promises to build China into the world’s hegemonic superpower in the next 30 years.

While recognizing the upcoming economic challenges, Xi’s speech expressed a desire to increase the authoritarian nature of the Chinese government and its stranglehold over the country. He declared in his three-and-a-half-hour speech that “it was time for his nation to transform itself into a mighty force” on the international stage, economically, culturally and militarily.

Mattis explains how the US would respond if North Korea launched a nuclear missile at America

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has explained how the US would respond to a North Korea nuclear missile attack in an appearance at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Monday.

“What happens if somebody knocks on the door of the oval office and says, ‘Mr. President, they’ve launched,'” Sen. Jim Risch asked.

Mattis replied: “Our ballistic missile defense forces at sea and in Alaska and California… the various radars would be feeding in and they would do what they’re designed to do as we make every effort to take them out.”

Legal expert: Mueller’s probe may be a bust because he was illegally appointed

Paul Manafort and Richard Gates have pleaded not guilty to all charges in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, but at least one legal scholar has suggested special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation may not be constitutional.

According to the reasoning, one of the key factors is how Mueller’s role is structured. Jeff Sessions recused himself, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has said Mueller doesn’t report to him with day-to-day decisions.

Record rainfall hits Tanzania, causing widespread flooding

Record-breaking rainfall hit parts of Tanzania, the most flood-affected country in eastern Africa, over the past couple of days, causing widespread flooding, mudslides and major travel disruptions. More than 170 mm (6.7 inches) of rain was measured in Dar es Salaam within 24 hours on Thursday, more than two times the country’s average October rainfall.

According to Hellen Msemo, senior meteorologist at the Tanzania Meteorology Authority, the worst affected was Tanzania’s northern coast. “Much of the infrastructure has been damaged, and the main highway to the nation’s largest city, Dar es Salaam, has been cut off from the north of the country,” Msemo said.
