Trump Stock Rally Leaving Big Media-Entertainment Behind

The most-biased, left-leaning companies are not thriving? Gee, I wonder why…
trump-and-us-media
From Hollywood Reporter: The Donald Trump election rally that’s sent the Dow Jones Industrial average hurtling toward an all-time high of 20,000 has left behind one key industry: big media conglomerates.
The president-elect has spent the election railing against television news giants like CNN and even right-leaning Fox News Channel. And Wall Street appears to be listening now that the real-estate mogul is heading to the White House. Of the 50 entertainment/media stocks tracked by The Hollywood Reporter, 36 of them lag the 9 percent gain made by the blue-chip index ahead of Friday’s potential record-breaking open.
While it’s tough to say there’s an exact correlation between Trump’s criticism of media and falling stock prices, experts say there are some legitimate concerns for the sector — as well as some lucrative opportunities — under a Trump presidency.
“Media and technology have underperformed because Trump wasn’t exactly favorable to leaders of those industries, so perhaps his policies will reflect that,” said Michael Kramer, founder and portfolio manager of Mott Capital Management. “He has been very critical of media. Obviously, the bad-mouthing hurts.”

On the flipside, Steven Birenberg of Northlake Capital Management predicts that a lucrative business environment under Trump will help a variety of industries and it’s only a matter of time before media-entertainment catches up. The FCC, Justice Department and IRS could all adopt a more business-friendly, merger-friendly posture, which would keep stocks humming under Trump, he says.
Among Birenberg’s favorite stocks, all of which he owns shares of, are Comcast and Charter Communications, two of the major players in cable television.
“Cable is a big winner under Trump as net neutrality could go away. At least the odds of the FCC enforcing any price caps on broadband will go away,” says Birenberg, who did not support Trump. “I despise the man … but when it comes to managing my clients’ money, my fiduciary responsibility is to do what is best for them, so if Trump helps out media and entertainment stocks, I’ve got to take advantage.”
He also likes video game publishers Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard due to the transition to digital downloads and in-game purchases, as well as Live Nation Entertainment, the giant concert promoter that also operates Ticketmaster. “The concert industry is booming globally,” he says.
Trump has been beating the drum against what he considers unfair trade deals with China, and among the biggest losers since the election is Alibaba. The massive Chinese new-media company that is co-producing films with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners is off 7 percent since the election.
Another laggard since Nov. 8 is Facebook, down 3 percent. The social networking giant has been under fire from the left for promoting “fake news” and from the right for allegedly pushing negative stories about conservatives and positive ones about liberals.
Also lagging are some theater operators, most notably Regal Entertainment Group, down 7 percent, and Cinemark Holdings, off 3 percent. Movie theaters, though, are expected to get a boost from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which could open this weekend to as much as $350 million globally.
Kramer says the Trump rally has mostly benefited bank, energy and infrastructure stocks, and he suspects it won’t last. “It’s all about tax reform, deregulation and infrastructure and deficit spending under Trump, and those are all pro-growth policies,” he said. “The market is forward-thinking, but it doesn’t know what the actual policies will be, so the rally may fizzle.”
Beyond a Trump effect (perceived or real), there are plenty of issues plaguing individual companies. Disney, for example, will score big with Rogue One, but it lost 2 million ESPN subscribers in the fiscal year ending Oct. 1. As for Viacom, it remains to be seen what new CEO Bob Bakish can do to turn around the Paramount film studio as well as cable channel MTV. And 21st Century Fox was hit by a downgrade Monday by Telsey Advisory Group, which predicts the Rupert Murdoch-controlled company will have to fight European regulators over its planned $14.1 billion acquisition of the 61 percent of British satellite TV service Sky that it doesn’t already own.

Chinese victim of one-child policy shares her tale of redemption after three coerced abortions

unborn baby

LifeSiteNews: A woman who endured three coerced abortions at the hands of “family planning” officials in China has opened up about her guilt and sorrow following the deaths of her three unborn children, and the suffering all Chinese women face as a result of the communist government’s draconian one child policy.

In an article for the China Aid website, Jinghong Cai, now a Ph.D. student in the United States, shared her personal story of grief and redemption, and shed light on the governmental and cultural pressure women undergo when it comes to pregnancy in the communist nation.

“The first time I was forced to have an abortion because I did not apply for the government’s permit to get pregnant,” Jinghong wrote. “My department secretary in charge of family planning told me that it was better for me to have a secret abortion than being reported and then punished.”

“Of course, she was not being kind to me or anything,” wrote Jinghong. “The reason she asked me to have a secret abortion was that if I was punished for breaking the family planning law, the university would receive a stern warning, even a hefty fine, and the university leaders would have to submit a letter of ‘remorse’ for negligence and dereliction of duty!”

Jinghong later went through official channels and received permission to become pregnant.  She gave birth to a baby boy.  But soon, she found herself again at the mercy of the family planning police.

“After my son was born, I got pregnant again, and for the same reason I had a second abortion,” recounted Jinghong. “After that, the doctor recommended that I use a Copper-T IUD, a type of long-acting, reversible contraception. Unfortunately, this device, considered one of the most effective forms of birth control, was disposed of by my body unbeknownst to me. I got pregnant again. For the same reason, I had another abortion.”

“As a Christian, I know that God has forgiven me, but for years, I carried with me the pain, shame and guilt of having snuffed out three precious lives,” Jinghong wrote.  Soon after her baptism in 2012, “I confessed my sin of abortion to God [and] had a blissful dream—three young children giggling joyfully, playing hide and seek, running around a smiling man in a long, white robe. I knew I was forgiven.”

Jinghong says that aside from her conversion to Christianity, her story is far from unusual in China.

“My story is not unique; it is the story of millions of Chinese women,” wrote Jinghong.  She recounted the story of her aunt, who gave birth to three girls in violation of the one child policy before finally having a son, risking “harsh and extreme” punishment by the authorities.

“One morning in June [of 1985],” recalled Jinghong, “the police drove a big truck into my aunt’s village and forced all married women to jump on the truck. Many of them were middle-aged, had already had children, and were not even pregnant. The police told them that they would undergo a medical checkup at the hospital, but once there, they all were forcedly sterilized.

Jinghong’s aunt was one of those who underwent the mandatory procedure.  Complications from the surgery almost caused her to bleed to death.

“The Western, liberal ideologists may question why they wanted to have a son so badly that they broke the government’s law time and again,” Jinghong wrote. “According to Chinese tradition, it is almost a religious belief that a son is the best heritage of a family, and the male heir is like the family’s flame of the incense, passing on his ancestor’s spirit from generation to generation. Wives often feel ashamed and guilty if they cannot give birth to a son.”

Indeed, the one child policy has led to what some human rights activists have called a “gendercide” against females in China.  Chinese girls are frequently aborted, killed at birth, or abandoned by their families, who think that if they are only permitted to raise one child, it should be a son.

Based on statistics from a 2009 study in the British Medical Journal, it has been estimated that there are only five girls born in China for every six boys as a result of sex-selective abortion, infanticide, or exposure. Approximately 1.1 million fewer girls are born every year. As a result, there are currently 37 million more males than females living in China, and the gender imbalance continues to grow.

According to Jinghong, it will take much more than a policy change to roll back the widespread practice of abortion in China.  She says that decades of systematic coercion and propaganda campaigns have left their indelible mark on the psyche of an entire nation.

“Forced abortion means it is never a ‘choice’ for women in China,” Jinghong wrote.  “However, people in China are so blind about this fact that they accept forced abortion as a natural and normal act, and even automatically engage in helping the government with its propaganda.”

“A middle-aged woman, a Communist Party member from the university where I used to teach, often told foreign tourists that the whole world should thank China for the forced abortion policy, ‘for we contribute to the world by sacrificing ourselves.’”

In China, abortion is as common as children having their tonsils taken out,” wrote Jinghong. “Nobody connects abortion with murder. The government’s policies have created a culture of disrespect for life and dignity, with millions of babies (some up to 9 months gestation) forcedly aborted.

Jinghong credits her faith with allowing her to accept the truth about abortion, as well as forgive herself.

“Many in communist China and across the world reject the notion of abortion as murder; I had three forced abortions—I found God; I know better.

Dirty Harry Reid Has His Hands All Over Bundy/BLM Dispute.

Folk’s This POS from Nevada is a sleazebag. As such it is our Patriotic duty to keep the light shining on this cockroach. You know the media won’t so please pass this one on. Joseph Farah from WND has a great post on it. Thank you.

HARRY REID’S LAST ROUNDUP

Exclusive: Joseph Farah exposes China deal possibly driving fed action against rancher

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy performed a remarkable public service for America over the last couple weeks.

He exposed the utter ruthlessness, brutishness and Gestapo tactics of the federal government in dealing with honest, hard-working Americans who live off the land – our land.

Claiming Bundy’s cattle ranching operation was endangering desert tortoises, the Bureau of Land Management treated him like he was Ted Bundy. I take that back. The serial rapist, mass murderer and necrophile got due process.

When Cliven Bundy’s neighbors turned out to support him, as good American neighbors should, the BLM sent in helicopters, four-wheel-drive vehicles and an estimated 200 armed officers to deal with the cowboy and his family, threatening another Ruby Ridge or Waco-style slaughter.

But I don’t think it was about tortoises. No, sir. In fact, with all the gear and manpower the BLM brought to Clark County to round up the cowboy and his cattle, they did more environmental damage to the area than Cliven Bundy ever could have dreamed of doing.

This was about something else.

It’s always about something else.

Maybe – just maybe – it had to do with another Nevadan by the name of Harry Reid.

It seems the Senate majority leader has been doing favors for a Chinese energy giant ENN, which has plans to build massive solar facilities in that area – tortoises or no tortoises.

It seems the director of BLM is Reid’s former senior adviser, Neil Kornze. BLM had posted on its website documents stating the agency wanted Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations. The agency removed it when the standoff became national news.

“Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle,” the document states.                                 

That would be the Chinese solar plant – the Management, or BLM.

They were getting a mega-deal. On April 3, 3012, Bloomberg reported Chinese billionaire Wang Yusuo, one of China’s richest citizens and the founder of ENN, had teamed up with Harry Reid to win incentives including land 113 miles southeast of Las Vegas that ENN sought to buy for $4.5 million, less than one-eighth of the land’s $38.6 million assessed value.

But the story gets better. Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, was the chief representative for a Chinese energy firm planning to build a $5-billion solar plant on public land in Laughlin, Nev.

A Reuters report stated: “[Reid] and his oldest son, Rory, are both involved in an effort by a Chinese energy giant, ENN Energy Group, to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel manufacturing plant in the southern Nevada desert. Reid has been one of the project’s most prominent advocates, helping recruit the company during a 2011 trip to China and applying his political muscle on behalf of the project in Nevada. His son, a lawyer with a prominent Las Vegas firm that is representing ENN, helped it locate a 9,000-acre (3,600-hectare) desert site that it is buying well below appraised value from Clark County, where Rory Reid formerly chaired the county commission.”

And there’s an even bigger story of scandal and corruption still beneath this show of force by the BLM, orchestrated by Harry Reid.

On Jan. 20, 2013, WND warned Chinese government-backed economists were proposing a plan to allow Chinese corporations to set up “development zones” in the United States as part of a plan proposed by the Chinese government to convert into equity the more than $1 trillion in U.S. Treasury debt owned by the Chinese government.

The next day, Jan. 21, 2013, WND documented the Obama administration had begun to allow China to acquire major ownership interests in oil and natural gas resources across the USA.

( Did You read that? Skippy opened door for Chicoms!!!!!!!!)

The first major intrusion of China in the U.S. oil and natural gas market can be traced to the Obama administration decision in October 2009 to allow state-owned Chinese energy giant China Offshore Oil Corporation, or CNOOC, to purchase a multi-million-dollar stake in 600,000 acres of South Texas oil and gas fields.

( Did you know this?  I did not, and now I’m Hot!!!!)

                                                                        Outraged

By allowing China to have equity interests in U.S. oil and natural gas production, the Obama administration reversed a policy of the Bush administration that in 2005 blocked China on grounds of national security concerns from an $18.4-billion deal in which China planned to purchase California-based Unocal Corp.

China’s two, giant, state-owned oil companies acquiring oil and natural gas interests in the USA are CNOOC, 100 percent owned by the government of the People’s Republic of China, and Sinopec Group, the largest shareholder of Sinopac Corporation, an investment company owned by the government of the People’s Republic of China, incorporated in China in 1998, largely to acquire and operate oil and natural gas interests worldwide.

On March 6, 2012, the Wall Street Journal compiled a state-by-state list of the $17 billion in oil and natural gas equity interests CNOOC and Sinopec have acquired in the United States since 2010.

  • Colorado: CNOOC gained a one-third stake in 800,000 acres in northeast Colorado and southwest Wyoming in a $1.27-billion pact with Chesapeake Energy Corporation.
  • Louisiana: Sinopec has a one-third interest in 265,000 acres in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale after a broader $2.5-billion deal with Devon Energy.
  • Michigan: Sinopec gained a one-third interest in 350,000 acres in a larger $2.5-billion deal with Devon Energy.
  • Ohio: Sinopec acquired a one-third interest in Devon Energy’s 235,000 Utica Shale acres in a larger $2.5-billion deal.
  • Oklahoma: Sinopec has a one-third interest in 215,000 acres in a broader $2.5-billion deal with Devon Energy.
  • Texas: CNOOC acquired a one-third interest in Chesapeake Energy’s 600,000 acres in the Eagle Ford Shale in a $2.16-billion deal.
  • Wyoming: CNOOC has a one-third stake in northeast Colorado and southeast Wyoming after a $1.27-billion pact with Chesapeake Energy. Sinopec gained a one-third interest in Devon Energy’s 320,000 acres as part of a larger $2.5-billion deal.

On March 6, 2012, in a separate story, the Wall Street Journal described that China’s strategy implemented since 2010 by Fu Chengyu, who has served as chairman of both CNOOC and Sinopec, involved the following components: “Seek minority states, play a passive role, and, in a nod to U.S. regulators, keep Chinese personnel at arm’s length from advanced U.S. technology.”

But back to Cliven Bundy and Harry Reid.

Remember Solyndra?

ENN intended to create solar energy farms on the Nevada land, despite the nearly 50 percent plunge in solar panel prices globally in the previous 15 months that led to the bankruptcy of solar equipment maker Solyndra LLC, which had received approximately $535 million in U.S. government loan guarantees.

And, yes, money exchanged hands between ENN and Reid. The Chinese energy company contributed $40,650 individually and through its political action committee to Sen. Reid over the previous three election cycles.

Reid was recruited by ENN during a 2011 trip he took to China with nine other U.S. senators, supposedly to invite Chinese investment in the United States. The Senate group accompanying Reid on his 2011 trip to China included six other Democrats and three Republicans: Richard Shelby, R-Ala.; Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.; Dick Durbin, D-Ill.; Mike Enzi, R-Wyo.; Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.; Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J.; Johnny Isakson, R-Ga.; Jeff Merkley, D-Ore.; and Michael Bennet, D-Colo.

Thank you, Cliven Bundy for bringing all of this to the public’s attention.

America is with you.

I am with you.

Enough is enough.

Thank you for exposing how crony capitalism works hand in hand with phony environmentalism.

Indeed, as Kris Kristofferson once wrote, “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.”

Harry may I say to you,     sangry_sign_100-104    and in closing,

29 Dead In China. Knife Wielding Terrorist Attack.

I hate to make political hay from such a tragedy, but if only these knives had been registered… Or why does anyone need a knife this big. Oh and this is probably the work of those friendly folk who bring you Islam. Just saying…


29 die in rail station attack China calls terrorism; Uighurs blamed.

BEIJING — A knife-wielding gang carried out an attack Saturday evening at a rail station in the south China city of Kunming, killing at least 29 and injuring more than 100, Chinese state media reported Sunday.

It was one of the deadliest attacks in China in years, and Chinese President Xi Jinping issued an unusual directive, distributed by the state news agency Xinhua, calling for authorities to “severely punish” what he called “violent terrorists.” Xinhua reported that four of the attackers had been killed, but it provided no information on when they died.

( I’m thinking China don’t play well with terrorists like we do.)

“Resolutely crack down on those who have been swollen with arrogance,” Xi’s directive said, according to Xinhua. “Understand the serious and complex nature of combating terrorism. Go all out to maintain social stability.”

Photos circulating on social media suggested that at least some of the victims were people lined up to purchase tickets. Other photos showed blood-stained bodies and people fleeing in terror.

Chinese state media, citing city officials, blamed the 9 p.m. attack on militants from Xinjiang, a region in West China that is thousands of miles from Kunming. “Evidence at the crime scene showed that the Kunming railway station terrorist attack was carried out by Xinjiang separatist forces,” Xinhua said, but it provided no details of the evidence.

Xinjiang is populated by Uighurs, Turkic Muslims who have long resented Beijing’s control of the area. In recent years, Uighur militants have carried out suicidal attacks on police stations in the region, often using knives and sometimes crude explosives. In October last year, a family of three Uighurs drove a sports utility vehicle onto a sidewalk in Tiananmen Square, killing two tourists and injuring 40, before setting the car on fire and killing themselves.

Kunming, in Yunnan Province, is 1,300 miles southwest of Beijing and about 2,333 driving miles southeast of Xinjiang’s capital, Urumqi. Because of the distances involved, and sketchy details provided by authorities and state media, some analysts Sunday urged caution in immediately concluding that Uighur militants were responsible.

Nevertheless, Saturday’s attack was likely to trigger a heavy handed response by Chinese authorities in Xinjiang, a region already under tight police control and restricted press access. Just last week, Beijing authorities arrested a leading Uighur scholar Ilham Tohti, charging him with promoting “separatism.” Tohti’s and his supporters dispute the charges, saying he is being silenced for his outspoken criticism of China’s human rights record in Xinjiang.

On Chinese social media on Sunday, most commentators expressed sympathy with the victims and urged government action against the terrorists.

“Some of these (victims) are poor people who do odd jobs and are possibly the breadwinners of their families,” wrote Anliuyi of Kunming. “They have children and parents, and just because they ran into this gang, they are dead and their families are broken.”

A man named Yang Haifei, who was wounded in the chest and back, told Xinhua he had been trying to buy a train ticket when the assailants carried out their attack. “I saw a person come straight at me with a long knife and I ran away with everyone,” he said. Others, he said, “simply fell on the ground.”

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un had his uncle fed to 120 ravenous dogs

Simply put, we have in North Korea, a psychopathic country ruled by a sick and evil psychopath.
Lest we forget, the U.S. and North Korea are technically still in a state of war. The Korean War (1950-53) ended with a cease fire; there never was a peace treaty signed. Today, the U.S. still maintains a “forward presence” on the Korean peninsula, with 28,500 American soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines stationed in South Korea.

Chinese mother is ‘dragged from her home in the middle of the night and forced to abort her baby son SIX MONTHS into pregnancy’ under country’s one-child policy

liu

Daily Mail: A Chinese woman has revealed she was dragged from her home in the middle of the night and forced to have an abortion, three months before her child was due to be born.

Liu Xinwen, 33, and her husband Zhou Guoqiang were left devastated after the mother-of-one was pulled from her bed and taken to hospital to be injected with an abortion-inducing drug.

The forced abortion is due to China’s strict one-baby policy, introduced in 1979 to keep the country’s population under control – the couple already have a son.

The coupleclaim that they were awoken at 4am last week after their door was kicked down and two dozen officials from the Shandong Province Family Planning Commission forced their way into their home.

Mr. Zhou told Sky News how he was held down on the sofa while his terrified wife was taken away to the  hospital. He then spent a desperate five hours trying to find out where Liu Xinwen had been taken as officials refused to tell  him.

When he eventually found his wife at the People’s Hospital of Fangzi District in Weifang City, he arrived just  minutes after the injection had been administered. ‘My wife was lying in bed. I asked her: ‘Have  you been injected?’ She said ‘yes’. I asked if the baby was still  moving.’ She said ‘not much,’ he told Sky News. ‘After that, I didn’t want my wife to see my crying. I went outside.’

The baby died in her womb and was delivered a day later – a horrific photo shows the foetus in an orange bucket next to Liu  Xinwen curled up on the hospital bed. It was then the couple discovered they had  been due to have a little boy, a younger brother for their son Zhou Junfeng, 10. A sobbing Liu Xinwen told of her grief at aborting her baby saying, ‘I miss him.’

‘I didn’t get to see him. I would be even more upset if I had seen him,’ she said.

Mr. Zhou claims his wife was forced to sign papers which said she had agreed to the abortion. He said that when she refused she was told if  she did not co-operate her husband would be arrested and she would be left with nothing.

She told Sky News that after her son was born she had a contraceptive coil inserted, a procedure proscribed by China. She said it must have failed and she discovered she was expecting a second child when she was four months into the  pregnancy.

The couple decided against informing the authorities as they feared a forced abortion and instead hoped to pay a fine after the birth – this is sometimes acceptable in parts of China.

It is not clear how authorities found out  Liu Xinwen was pregnant. The Chinese Embassy in London told Sky News they were looking into the case.

In July a man stabbed to death two government workers in China after they told him they couldn’t register his fourth child. They had told the man they were unable to record the birth because he had not paid a fine for breaching  China’s family planning laws.

The official Xinhua News Agency, said staff at the Dongxing City Family  Planning Bureau – which comes under Fangchenggang  city – had refused to  register the man’s fourth child for a hukou, or resident’s certificate,  because he hadn’t paid a social compensation fee. The fine is levied on parents who break  family planning laws and can be up to 10 times a family’s annual income. A child without a hukou faces problems registering for education, health care and government benefits.

Known to many as the one-child policy, China’s actual rules are complicated. The government limits most urban couples to one child, and allows two children for rural families if their firstborn is a girl. Numerous other exceptions include looser  rules for minority families and a two-child limit for parents who are themselves both singletons.

Though the government credits the policy with preventing hundreds of millions of births and helping lift countless families out of poverty, it is reviled by many ordinary people. The strict limits have led to forced  abortions and sterilizations, even though such measures are illegal. Couples who flout the rules face hefty fines, seizure of their property and loss of their jobs.

Many demographers argue that the policy has worsened the country’s aging crisis by limiting the size of the young labor pool  that must support the large baby boom generation as it retires. They say it has contributed to the imbalanced sex ratio by encouraging families to abort baby girls, preferring to  try for a male heir.

Pure EVIL.
