Op-Ed by Michael Snyder

Just when things seemed to be settling down a little bit, our conflict with China has suddenly escalated to a dangerous new phase.  This is not simply just a “trade war” any longer, and our relationship with China will never be the same again.  As you will see below, President Trump just referred to Chinese President Xi Jinping as our “enemy”, and this is something that the Chinese are going to take extremely seriously.  In China, the national leader is a representation of the government as a whole, and the government as a whole is a representation of the entire county.  So to the Chinese people, what Trump just said will be interpreted as “the United States and China are now enemies”.

Of course for Trump everything would be forgiven tomorrow if the Chinese totally caved in to his demands and started saying all sorts of nice things about him, but for the Chinese what has transpired in recent months will be remembered for generations.  President Trump has insulted their national honor over and over again, and that sort of thing may not mean much to us here in the Western world anymore, but over in China their sense of honor is central to who they are as a people.

After everything that has already been said and done, there will be no going back, and we are now facing a future in which the United States and China will be very bitter enemies.

In response to previously announced U.S. tariffs, China stunned global markets when it announced a new wave of tariffs on U.S. goods early on Friday

The trade war between the U.S. and China escalated further Friday as Beijing announced a new set of tariffs on American products, sending the stock market plunging.

The China State Council announced it would impose tariffs ranging from 5% to 10% on an additional $75 billion in U.S. goods, according to state media outlet Global Times.

After Trump learned of this, he hit the ceiling, and he immediately went on a Twitter rant in which he pledged to hit Chinese goods with even higher tariffs

For many years China (and many other countries) has been taking advantage of the United States on Trade,

ZombieLoad: New critical flaw affects most Intel processors, exposes keys, browsing history & more

zombieload:-new-critical-flaw-affects-most-intel-processors,-exposes-keys,-browsing-history-&-more

Researchers have found another security flaw in the Intel processor chips that power most of the world’s computers, one that can compromise users’ private data – and that can’t be fixed without a major performance drop.

The exploit, dubbed ZombieLoad, is embedded in Intel’s processor chips themselves, meaning even the best-designed software patches can only go part of the way toward plugging the hole without reducing the chips’ performance. The vulnerability may allow attackers to ‘resurrect’ critical data processed by the chip – from browser history and passwords to disk encryption keys and other system-level sensitive data.

Its reach isn’t even limited to the end-user’s computer, according to researchers Michael Schwarz, Moritz Lipp, and Daniel Gruss from Graz University of Technology and Jo Van Bulck from KU Leuven: it “can also be exploited in the cloud.” 

Intel claims there is no evidence Zombieload was exploited by real-world actors, but as the researchers explain, because it’s a hardware vulnerability, attackers who use it may not leave the traces of outside interference found with typical software exploits. It’s also ‘unlikely’ such activity would be caught by an anti-virus program, though secondary attacks that use it to invade a user’s system might set off alarms.

Intel has reportedly addressed the problem “at the hardware level” in its newest processors, while releasing microcode and software updates to patch older chips. Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Mozilla have all issued their own patches, but some users might have to brace for as much as a 40 percent reduction in performance.

ZombieLoad was discovered by the same researchers who uncovered the notorious Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities in 2017, a finding which shook the computer world’s sense of security to its core. Meltdown affected almost every processor Intel had ever manufactured going back to the mid-1990s. Spectre, which proved more difficult to patch even at the software level,

Biblicism ( Wadalt: “IsraHELL did it”)    AND    TodaysFox (“I made $7000 sucking cock on the Internet”) –IT’s ALL THE SAME SPAMMER!   WELCOME  to our new Today’s Fox SPAMMING tranny:  s12940448

HELLO SPAM-LOVERS!!!   BIG UP from the SPAMMER BUNKHOUSE here in the Methfilled Valley Trailer Park in Methfilled Valley, PA.  Good to see my men powow, Leakanthrophy and Wadalt and  PrivetHedge  and our newbies  MoreSun (a real bacon-loving attack dog!) and CHEOLL and sanctificado  and  gzcekkyret  out from under the couch sucking their own dicks at 3 a.m. and back on the threads SPAMMING like a Grease Fire in the middle of the night!!!! 

Welcome newbie MoreSun talking some heavy attack shit at 3am!    DARWIN, our Master Spammer is whacked!!!

THIS is an important week here in the SPAMMER’s BUNKHOUSE (the leaking moldy single-wide in the trailer park).  This week I (we?) are celebrating SEVEN YEARS here on ZH, obsessively SPAMMING every thread we can with off-topic comments.  You see, there are dozens of “personalities” living in this one single sad SPAMMER’s sick little mind, which he calls “Spammer’s Bunkhouse.”  How sick is that? 

Each of “us” (these innumerable fake log-on’s) is represented by an ACTION FIGURE that Master Spammer (“DARWIN” is his name — can you believe that?)  lines up on his kitchen counter and TALKS TO!!  WHACK JOB!!!

 

SAD BUT TRUE!!  I (we?) have wasted my (our) youth (or at least the last seven years) with at least one hand in my pants and the other hand SPAMMING ZH.  Yes, indeed.  DOZENS and DOZENS (maybe hundreds) of log-on’s banned — 
“I made $7500 last week on the Internet sucking cock!”: that’s me.
Biblicism: that’s me.
All the porn at Celebrity-leaks: that’s me.
Daily Westerner: that’s me.

“In the news….SPAMMER broomsticked by furious readers” — registered in Nigeria) :: that’s me TOO!! 

That’s our life (all of us living in Master Spammer’s Mind): mopping the floor at the Porn Cinema at 2am, working the French Frier at SONIC (demoted from the drive-thru window ‘cuz my ZIT-covered face scared the customers), sucking cock on the Internet, and spamming ZH with an enormous Excel spreadsheet of the log-on’s of dozens of “digital friends”
