China’s Xi Vanishes; Where is the Man Rumored to Lead China Next Month? China Having Second Thoughts? What's the Worst That Could Happen? - Mike "Mish" Shedlock

A regime change in China is slated for next month. Yet Xi Jinping, the man rumored to be the next leader is missing in action.

It is not uncommon for Chinese leaders to disappear from public life for extended periods, but it is uncommon for them to disappear smack in front of a regime change.

It is also uncommon for them to skip planned and announced meetings with foreign leaders. Xi Jinping has cancelled at least four scheduled meetings with visiting dignitaries including a Russian delegation, Singapore’s prime minister and US secretary of state Hillary Clinton last Wednesday and the prime minister of Denmark on Monday.

So where is he?

Financial Times reports Rumours swirl as China’s Xi vanishes.

Where is Xi Jinping? The man anointed to run the world’s most populous nation and second-largest economy has disappeared from public view just weeks before his expected elevation to lead the Chinese Communist Party.

An official account did not list him among the attendees at an unscheduled meeting held last Friday by the party’s powerful central military commission, of which Mr Xi is vice-chairman.

Late last week the foreign ministry invited overseas media to cover a meeting between Mr Xi and Danish prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt scheduled for Monday afternoon. But on Monday the ministry denied that the meeting was ever supposed to take place.

Assange Lawyer: Innocent man persecuted, US war crimes unpunished

Baltasar Garzon is no stranger to conflict when it comes to fighting injustice carried out by state powers. In an exclusive interview with RT, the Spanish jurist explained why WikiLeaks founder and whistleblower Julian Assange is “worth defending.”
­The seemingly intractable battle between Ecuador and Britain over Julian Assange has brought a spotlight on the dangerous path whistleblowers tread in exposing abuses of state power.
With Assange holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since June, the small Latin American country’s decision to grant the WikiLeaks founder political asylum sits in heavy contrast to the fact that he lives under lock and key like a fugitive, in constant fear of arrest.
In the midst of this international standoff, Garzon spoke at length with RT’s sister channel Actualidad RT about why the UK was only bluffing when British authorities threatened to storm the Ecuadorian embassy, why he has no doubt the US is pursuing a case against his client, and the irony that Assange is being persecuted for exposing gross human rights violations, while the perpetuators who committed those criminal acts remain free.

Resist Making 'Helicopter Parenting' The Law of The Land

Lenore Skenazy writes a nationally syndicated column that appears in more than 100 papers through the Creators Syndicate.
[latest article] Folks — The idea that a 10-year-old is not allowed to read at the library without a guardian is nauseating to me, and not just because I spent my formative years at the Wilmette Public Library (reading the Harvard Lampoon). I can't imagine my mom having to spend her whole weekend at the library just because she happened to have a reader for a child. Alternatively, I can't imagine NOT spending my afternoons at the library because my mom had other things to do besides bodyguarding me in the reference room. Source

Former CNN Reporter Exposes Networks Self-Censorship on Bahrain

How the Market Can Cure the Health Care Crisis w/Dr. Keith Smith!

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney raised eyebrows yesterday when he said he would "not get rid of all of healthcare reform." Romney's statement made headline news because it differed from his previous rhetoric of "repealing ObamaCare." We would rather hear politicians explain the real reasons for why a trip to the ER for a headache can amount to a bill of $10,000. Could it be that healthcare isn't actually that expensive?

Former TSA Insider Confirms 'Predatory Nature' at Airports + The Scientific Takeover

Alex takes a call from a former tsa insider who confirms the 'predatory nature' going on behind the scene at airports across the country.

The war on drugs is working perfectly! "It turns out that nature has no respect for patents."

By End the Lie Guest Writer: Click to see full size (Image credit: Fee.org)
I see countless articles about the unfairness and futility of the war on drugs but not a single mention of why drugs have to be illegal.  It’s because without strict controls that limit the supply, most street drugs would be nearly worthless.  It’s their illegality that makes them so profitable.
I must assume that people who write articles bemoaning the war on drugs are either propagandists or stupendously ignorant of natural laws.  If marijuana were legal it wouldn’t be long before you’d have to give it away.  It’s a weed!  It will grow anywhere in any soil.  It will grow in the cracks in your driveway.
Opium poppies are a little fussier but they’re no more difficult to raise than tomato plants.  Without very strict controls the bottom would fall out of those markets in a single growing season and thus the profits would similarly drop off.
“If the [drug] trade is ever legalized, it will cease to be profitable from that time. The more difficulties that attend it, the better for you and us.” – Director of Jardine-Matheson, multinational corporation, incorporated in Bermuda and based in Hong Kong.
The banking, legal, and private prison systems thrive on those laws too.  In fact, a very big part of the world’s economy depends on those barbaric laws that keep the price of drugs inflated beyond reason.  The U.N. pegs the yearly illicit drugs trade at $1.5 trillion and most of that money would simply disappear from the economy if drugs were to be legalized.
