It seems as if the Chinese are the only nation on this earth who are actually building big for the future.  Whereas the rest of the world:  USA, Russia, Middle East, etc. are all in conflagration!  The Chinese must be laughing their collective asses off!  


Corporation China is beginning to own the world!




HEY, TRUMP?  WTF???  Who the hell is this guy WANG?


I'm not asking Obama! One feels he really doesn't give a shit.

US East to Pinch 10% of Panama Traffic
Panama-Guide Top Level Category - The Expansion of the Panama Canal
On 22 October 2006 the citizens of Panama voted to expand the Panama Canal to allow for more transits and bigger ships. The Panama Canal Authority has started to execute the project and is following a comprehensive plan that will take eight years to complete at a cost of $5.25 billion dollars. While this is a subject of tremendous importance to the Republic of Panama and its people, the international maritime industry will benefit directly from the expansion through lower shipping costs, and global consumers will eventually benefit from the greater capacity and efficiency of the Panama Canal.
Furthermore, Panama also faces new competition from the incredibly ambitious Nicaragua Canal project.
Funded by the Hong Kong Nicaragua Development Group, the project aims to drill through Nicaragua and have a fully functioning canal by 2020 that can accept even bigger ships than Panama.
However, the viability of the project has been questioned intensely.

Good story to know.  Got me thinking about the wall that Trump wants to build down in our southern border.  Does he know about a few back door business deals for large scale construction across the world?  Suppose he does?  Why build a wall to keep undesirables out?  History tells us that walls of this nature also keep the people in too.  Why not make a power play and get back control of the Panama Canal. American hands should be the ones to control that economic destiny.  ALL American hands.  North and South and everything in between.  Especially the ones who designed it, built it, lived with it. 
China will further dig their heels in the ground down south.  Too much has been invested already...

The Nicaragua Canal project undermines the US influence in Latin America and its control over the transoceanic routs, facilitating strengthening the role of BRICS, notably China and Russia in the region.

Trump’s stance on Venezuela garners rare bipartisan support in Congress

Many Democratic lawmakers, including Shalala, have joined their Republican colleagues in praising the administration for recognizing National Assembly President Juan Guaidó as Venezuela's interim president, issuing sweeping sanctions against the largest state-owned oil company in the South American nation and offering $20 million in humanitarian aid to the people of Venezuela.

"We have common interests," another Florida congressman, Rep. Darren Soto, told CBS News. The two-term Democrat said both parties back sanctions against Maduro's regime, the recognition of Venezuela's opposition leaders and humanitarian assistance.

"We all stand against tyranny — and this is an attack on democracy," he said.

Soto and Shalala have teamed up with lawmakers of both parties to introduce several bills to address the worsening political and socioeconomic crisis in Venezuela. One bill would codify existing restrictions on U.S. arms sales to Maduro's government and add tear gas and batons to the list of banned items. Another proposal would allow the U.S. government to dispatch $150 million in humanitarian aid to Venezuela. And a third would allow Venezuelans living in the U.S. who have fled the country's repressive government and collapsing economy to qualify for Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

Shalala said she understands why some lawmakers are hesitant to back efforts designed to facilitate the ouster of a foreign government, given America's history of assisting right-wing leaders who violently overthrew governments and installed authoritarian regimes. But she stressed that this time was different because America's efforts are supported by an international coalition, including most of Latin America and the Organization of American States (OAS).

Guaidó's declaration last week set off a new wave of violence and chaos in oil-rich Venezuela — once considered one of Latin America's wealthiest countries. The 35-year-old opposition leader, who's already been targeted by the Maduro-allied Supreme Court, is betting on pressure from the international community and military defections to oust Maduro. But so far, top military leaders in Venezuela have remained loyal to the ruling government. Guaidó has called for peaceful, nationwide demonstrations on Saturday to force Maduro to hold elections.

Shalala urged the Trump administration to continue to assist the opposition, which she said is supported by the "majority of the people." On Friday, Vice President Michael Pence will travel to Miami to meet with the exiled Venezuelan community in the area, along with a congressional delegation.  

"Our hopes and prayers­ — and our muscle, I hope — is with the Venezuelan people," Shalala said.
