Priced at $75,000, it seemingly represents not only a bargain (original list price was $150,000, or around $360,000 in today’s money) but an investment opportunity, and a chance to own one of the most iconic and controversial designs in all of automotive history.

    (Bloomberg) -- Oil retreated from the highest level in more than two months with doubts emerging over the strength of China’s economic recovery and as tensions rose between Washington and Beijing.Futures in New York fell 3.4%. Beijing won’t set a target for economic growth this year due to “great uncertainty” over the coronavirus, although it did announce some new stimulus spending. Equity markets from Asia to Europe fell on expectations that tensions between the U.S. and China will escalate on concerns over a new Hong Kong security law.In oil, there are warning signs that any recovery will be long and slow. The research unit of state-owned China National Petroleum Corp. said fuel demand in the country will drop by 5% this year. India’s consumption may not recover to pre-coronavirus levels for months.Still, the market is in much better shape than even a couple of weeks ago. Futures prices are heading for a fourth weekly gain with supply and demand starting to rebalance, while physical barrels have also rallied. American drillers are in the process of curtailing 1.75 million barrels a day of existing production by early June, according to IHS Markit.“Although there is reason for the high levels, a constant increase is not sustainable or justified,” said Paola Rodriguez Masiu, senior oil market analyst at Rystad Energy. “The market situation is definitely better than a few weeks ago, supply has been curtailed significantly one way or another and demand has also started to recover.”China’s oil demand earlier this month was probably at 92% of levels at the same time last year, IHS Markit said separately, and full-year consumption is likely to be around 8% lower than in 2019.

    The official newspaper of North Korea has denied that the regime's leaders can magically bend time and space, putting to bed a long tradition used to idolise the mystical powers of Kim Jong-un and former leader Kim Jong-il. In the latest sign that the secretive regime is turning away from myth-making about its leaders, the Rodong Sinmun newspaper this week denied that the Kim family are masters of "chukjibeop", a method of folding space and travelling great distances in a short period of time. Chukjibeop is one of the myths that has been used by the North to deify its leaders. The newspaper, the organ of the North's ruling party, said: "In realistic terms, a person cannot suddenly disappear and reappear by folding space."

    It's hard to declassify something that was never classified to begin with.Republicans have recently taken issue with what they call the "unmasking" of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn in FBI documents, with Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) even announcing an investigation into the matter. But Obama administration officials didn't actually order Flynn's name unredacted in official FBI documents because his name was never redacted to begin with, former U.S. officials tell The Washington Post.Unmasking is the practice of identifying an anonymous person in government documents to help others understand what they're reading. But conservatives have taken issue with Flynn's alleged unmasking in documents of his calls with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. In a letter to acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, Graham said he found it problematic that FBI files "did not contain a record showing who unmasked" Flynn and asked for that information himself; some conservatives have suggested former Vice President Joe Biden was to blame.But the source of the unmasking may not have been in the FBI files because Flynn was never anonymous in the first place, the Post reports.

  • 49/81   Terrorism Motive Suspected in Naval Base Shooting, Second Suspect at Large
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Authorities believe a shooting that injured one person at a south Texas naval base on Thursday morning was terrorism-related.The suspect attempted to ram a security gate at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi with a vehicle at around 6:15 a.m., a U.S. defense official told CNN.Security guards deployed a barrier to stop the vehicle but the suspect then got out and started firing, the official said.The gunman was then “neutralized” by a security guard, the FBI said. One member of the naval security forces was injured but was in “good condition,” the U.S. Navy said. It wasn’t immediately clear if the injured person was also the person who took the shooter down.FBI Senior Supervisory Agent Leah Greeves said in a Thursday afternoon briefing that the agency believed the incident was motivated by terrorism, and they were looking for a second person of interest.The base sounded the alarm with a Facebook post early Thursday, writing that an apparent shooter had been sighted near the station’s north gate. The warning instructed anyone who was close to the gate to “get out and away to safety” as the rest of the base was ordered to go into its lockdown procedure.Shortly after the initial statement, the base confirmed in a separate Facebook post that the immediate danger appeared to be over.The statement read: “Naval Security Forces at NAS Corpus Christi responded to an active shooter at approximately 6:15 a.m. this morning.

    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    European stock markets steadied Friday after heavy losses for Hong Kong, as China introduced proposals to enact a national security law for the city, fanning geopolitical tensions and somewhat overshadowing optimism about easing coronavirus lockdowns in Europe and the United States.  After months of concentrating on the economic impact of the coronavirus, traders' attention is once again also on China-US tensions, already exacerbated by US President Donald Trump's constant criticism of Beijing's handling of the pandemic.  On the first day of its rubber-stamp parliament, China unveiled proposals to strengthen 'enforcement mechanisms' in Hong Kong, after the city was last year rocked by seven months of massive -- and sometimes violent -- pro-democracy protests.

  • 63/81   China's Hong Kong Crackdown Could Put Trump in an Unwelcome Spot
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    WASHINGTON -- China's plans to impose sweeping new security powers over Hong Kong could inflict even more damage on already fraught relations between Washington and Beijing, and force President Donald Trump into uncomfortable decisions about whether to maintain his self-described friendly ties with the Chinese president, Xi Jinping.The proposal announced in Beijing on Thursday provoked outrage in Congress, where bipartisan support grew quickly for new sanctions on Chinese officials and entities that Trump -- who has shown limited interest in Hong Kong's plight and a continued desire to carry out terms of a trade deal with Beijing -- may not welcome.Giving the government broad new powers to crack down on pro-democracy activists could effectively end Hong Kong's limited independence and crush a protest movement that has agitated for nearly a year against China's authoritarian Communist Party."This move by Beijing would rip away the remaining veneer of 'one country, two systems.' It would precipitate a crisis in U.S.-China relations," said Evan Medeiros, a senior Asia director at the National Security Council under President Barack Obama and a professor at Georgetown University."Nationalist voices in the U.S. and China would have a party with this; 2020 is beginning to feel more and more like 1948 when the first crises of the Cold War broke out over Berlin," Medeiros said, predicting that the United States and China would probably impose sanctions or other punishments on each other.The Chinese government, which announced the move, is likely to put it in place by fiat during the National People's Congress, which begins Friday. How Trump will react is unclear.Leaving the White House for a trip to Michigan on Thursday, he told reporters that he did not know "what it is," but added, "If it happens, we'll address that issue very strongly."The White House otherwise had no comment.When mass demonstrations against Beijing took place in Hong Kong last summer, Trump -- who has shown little interest in issues of democracy and human rights generally -- had a muted response despite bipartisan pressure to show more support for a protest movement with open sympathies for the United States.And even as he has lashed out at China's government for its handling of the winter coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, helping to prompt the sharpest downturn in relations with Beijing in decades, Trump has taken care not to insult or offend Xi. Because of the pandemic's economic toll, China has yet to meet purchasing demands outlined in a January trade agreement between the two nations. Trump and his economic advisers would like to see the deal fulfilled to aid his reelection prospects.But in recent months the Trump campaign has increasingly focused on its message of China as a villainous threat to American economic and security interests, while portraying Trump's Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, as too conciliatory toward Beijing. Trump has repeatedly muddied that message with his deferential tone toward Xi."Any effort to impose national security legislation that does not reflect the will of the people of Hong Kong would be highly destabilizing, and would be met with strong condemnation from the United States and the international community," Morgan Ortagus, a State Department spokeswoman, said in a statement on Thursday."We urge Beijing to honor its commitments and obligations in the Sino-British Joint Declaration -- including that Hong Kong will 'enjoy a high degree of autonomy' and that people of Hong Kong will enjoy human rights and fundamental freedoms -- which are key to preserving Hong Kong's special status in international affairs, and, consistent with U.S. law, the United States' current treatment of Hong Kong," she said.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said the State Department has yet to issue to Congress a mandatory report examining the autonomous status of Hong Kong in order to gauge continuing actions from Beijing before coming to a conclusion. The department might recommend that the United States no longer give Hong Kong preferential treatment as a territory that has autonomy under China.By midday Thursday, Sen. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., and Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., announced that they would propose legislation to impose sanctions on Chinese officials and entities that enforce the planned national security laws.The measure would also impose sanctions on banks that do business with entities deemed to violate the Basic Law, a legal document that is supposed to guarantee Hong Kong significant autonomy until 2047."The communist regime in Beijing would like nothing more than to extinguish the autonomy of Hong Kong and the rights of its people," Toomey said in a statement. "In many ways, Hong Kong is the canary in the coal mine for Asia. Beijing's growing interference could have a chilling effect on other nations struggling for freedom in China's shadow."China's attempted crackdown on Hong Kong has been a rare cause for unity between the parties, with both liberals and conservatives rallying to the cause of democracy and condemning Xi's increasingly authoritarian impulses."The USA cannot let this stand," Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo. and a staunch Trump ally and China hawk, wrote on Twitter. Hawley said he would introduce a Senate resolution "condemning this attempted crackdown" and calling on "all free nations to stand with" Hong Kong."This proposed legislation is a sign of Beijing's weakness, not its strength," said Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y. and the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. "Hong Kong's special status is a benefit to China and the world.

    WASHINGTON -- China's plans to impose sweeping new security powers over Hong Kong could inflict even more damage on already fraught relations between Washington and Beijing, and force President Donald Trump into uncomfortable decisions about whether to maintain his self-described friendly ties with the Chinese president, Xi Jinping.The proposal announced in Beijing on Thursday provoked outrage in Congress, where bipartisan support grew quickly for new sanctions on Chinese officials and entities that Trump -- who has shown limited interest in Hong Kong's plight and a continued desire to carry out terms of a trade deal with Beijing -- may not welcome.Giving the government broad new powers to crack down on pro-democracy activists could effectively end Hong Kong's limited independence and crush a protest movement that has agitated for nearly a year against China's authoritarian Communist Party."This move by Beijing would rip away the remaining veneer of 'one country, two systems.' It would precipitate a crisis in U.S.-China relations," said Evan Medeiros, a senior Asia director at the National Security Council under President Barack Obama and a professor at Georgetown University."Nationalist voices in the U.S. and China would have a party with this; 2020 is beginning to feel more and more like 1948 when the first crises of the Cold War broke out over Berlin," Medeiros said, predicting that the United States and China would probably impose sanctions or other punishments on each other.The Chinese government, which announced the move, is likely to put it in place by fiat during the National People's Congress, which begins Friday. How Trump will react is unclear.Leaving the White House for a trip to Michigan on Thursday, he told reporters that he did not know "what it is," but added, "If it happens, we'll address that issue very strongly."The White House otherwise had no comment.When mass demonstrations against Beijing took place in Hong Kong last summer, Trump -- who has shown little interest in issues of democracy and human rights generally -- had a muted response despite bipartisan pressure to show more support for a protest movement with open sympathies for the United States.And even as he has lashed out at China's government for its handling of the winter coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, helping to prompt the sharpest downturn in relations with Beijing in decades, Trump has taken care not to insult or offend Xi. Because of the pandemic's economic toll, China has yet to meet purchasing demands outlined in a January trade agreement between the two nations. Trump and his economic advisers would like to see the deal fulfilled to aid his reelection prospects.But in recent months the Trump campaign has increasingly focused on its message of China as a villainous threat to American economic and security interests, while portraying Trump's Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, as too conciliatory toward Beijing. Trump has repeatedly muddied that message with his deferential tone toward Xi."Any effort to impose national security legislation that does not reflect the will of the people of Hong Kong would be highly destabilizing, and would be met with strong condemnation from the United States and the international community," Morgan Ortagus, a State Department spokeswoman, said in a statement on Thursday."We urge Beijing to honor its commitments and obligations in the Sino-British Joint Declaration -- including that Hong Kong will 'enjoy a high degree of autonomy' and that people of Hong Kong will enjoy human rights and fundamental freedoms -- which are key to preserving Hong Kong's special status in international affairs, and, consistent with U.S. law, the United States' current treatment of Hong Kong," she said.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said the State Department has yet to issue to Congress a mandatory report examining the autonomous status of Hong Kong in order to gauge continuing actions from Beijing before coming to a conclusion. The department might recommend that the United States no longer give Hong Kong preferential treatment as a territory that has autonomy under China.By midday Thursday, Sen. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., and Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., announced that they would propose legislation to impose sanctions on Chinese officials and entities that enforce the planned national security laws.The measure would also impose sanctions on banks that do business with entities deemed to violate the Basic Law, a legal document that is supposed to guarantee Hong Kong significant autonomy until 2047."The communist regime in Beijing would like nothing more than to extinguish the autonomy of Hong Kong and the rights of its people," Toomey said in a statement. "In many ways, Hong Kong is the canary in the coal mine for Asia. Beijing's growing interference could have a chilling effect on other nations struggling for freedom in China's shadow."China's attempted crackdown on Hong Kong has been a rare cause for unity between the parties, with both liberals and conservatives rallying to the cause of democracy and condemning Xi's increasingly authoritarian impulses."The USA cannot let this stand," Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo. and a staunch Trump ally and China hawk, wrote on Twitter. Hawley said he would introduce a Senate resolution "condemning this attempted crackdown" and calling on "all free nations to stand with" Hong Kong."This proposed legislation is a sign of Beijing's weakness, not its strength," said Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y. and the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. "Hong Kong's special status is a benefit to China and the world. I don't understand why Beijing continues to imperil that status with proposals such as this."Trump's China policy has long been a battleground for dueling camps, usually featuring economic officials who favor a more conciliatory relationship and national security policymakers, led by Pompeo and senior National Security Council aides, who view China as a dangerous strategic rival that must be checked.At the height of Trump's trade negotiations with China in 2018 and 2019, the economy-centric view seemed to prevail and helped to explain Trump's repeated fulsome praise of Xi as a "brilliant leader" and a "great man."But the emergence of the coronavirus from Wuhan, and the Chinese government's initial efforts to conceal it, enraged Trump, who saw his reelection imperiled as a result, and in recent weeks the hawkish camp has pressed the theory, with no evidence, that the virus escaped from a Chinese lab.On Wednesday, the National Security Council released a White House strategy document detailing a "competitive" American approach devised in part to "to compel Beijing to cease or reduce actions harmful to the United States' vital, national interests and those of our allies and partners."The same day, the Trump administration angered Beijing by approving as much as $180 million in torpedo sales to Taiwan, whose de facto independence mainland China rejects but which the Trump administration strongly supports.Trump did not give any indication on Thursday how he will react to the congressional effort to impose sanctions.After Congress passed legislation last fall, Trump was noncommittal about whether he would sign the measure. but he eventually did on the evening before Thanksgiving, ensuring it gained minimal publicity.This time his conservative allies are more adamant than ever that Trump must not look the other way.
