China says it will respond to ‘all threats’ as US Navy destroyer USS John Finn sails through Taiwan Strait (msn.com)
A US Navy destroyer has sailed through the Taiwan Strait in what it calls a “routine” exercise – a move that has once again triggered Beijing’s ire.
According to a statement from the US Navy’s 7th Fleet, the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS John Finn was conducting a routine transit per international law.
“The ship’s transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the US commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific. The United States military will continue to fly, sail, and operate anywhere international law allows,” the statement said.
The Chinese government has issued a strong response to the destroyer’s passage through the strait, Sina News reported.
“This move by the US Navy has artificially created risk factors across the Taiwan Strait and deliberately undermined regional peace and stability. We firmly oppose this,” the government’s statement read. “Our troops in the theater are always on high alert and are ready to respond to all threats and provocations.”

‘The Royal Janitor’
Sabrina Victoria Eastman could not get to Osborne House fast enough. When she got behind the wheel of her 1961 Jaguar she named ‘Grey Cloud’ the young women who picked her up at the airport tried not to show that she had been warned. She was two shades a pale grey when they arrived at the palace built for Victoria and Albert. She tried to keep up on unsteady legs. The blood was returning to her hands now that she unloosened her grip. As they made their way into the basement she realized she had an experience better than sex. She was a virgin. All her blood veins were alive with an energy she did not know existed. She felt adventurous, and nauseous. She knew she would never be the same.
At the stainless steel door, Sabrina stopped, pointed up, and asked;
“What does that say?”
It says……….”I can tell that you are quite left-leaning.”
“Why is it there?” Sabrina asked.
“To remind us to never underestimate anyone. And, never think for a second a whacked-out poet-artist and Bohemian type, is not a true patriot.”
A Russian Government hacking operation aimed at the US power grid did not compromise operations at any of the nation’s commercial nuclear power plants, federal regulators and the nuclear industry say.
- Trump administration accuses Russia of a plot to penetrate America’s electricity grid, factories, water supply and air travel
- US national security officials determined Russian intelligence was behind a broad range of cyberattacks starting a year ago
- Corporate networks at some of the 99 plants licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission were affected by the 2017 hack
Corporate networks at some of the 99 plants licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission were affected by the 2017 hack aimed at the energy grid and other infrastructure, but no safety, security or emergency preparedness functions were affected, the NRC said in a statement.
US nuclear plants are designed as operational “islands” that are not connected to the internet and other networks. Nuclear power provides about 20 per cent of the nation’s electricity.

In reading the history of early California writers, the word BOHEMIANISM is used quite often. Because Liz Taylor and I are kin to Ian Fleming, and I am authoring two Bond books, I declare Fleming a Bohemian author. In Bond of Nebraska I will have James look into the reason many evangelical ministers are encouraging their flock not to be vaccinated. This will be the first time a real crisis will be dealt with by 007.
