622. A case in early 2010 (1/26/2010)
China plays big role in framed drug case. The payment is big too. One of the payments is the punishment of former President of Taiwan - Chen Shui-Bian. Chen is a fanatical eulogist of Taiwan independence, so he is the most hated person of Chinese government. Chen is also a puppet of the US. Unfortunately he is sold by his master once the Feds thought their interest was more important than their puppet's. Chen Shui-Bian was arrested for corruption. The case started when Switzerland revealed that Chen's family committed the crime of money laundry. No one has the power to force Switzerland to do so except the Feds. Yuan Hong-bing, a Chinese dissident writer, in his new book "Big doom of Taiwan", revealed that the Cheng Shui-bian's case was the result of "China's persuasion on US which forced the bank of Switzerland betrayed its customer". Yuan didn't say why US would sell its ally to a potential rivalry. I have talked about the secret deal long time ago.
Cheng Shui-bian is in custody. He proposed to bail out four times but all failed. His punishment becomes a chip too. His jail term will be confirmed once the framed drug case is done. So his detaining is prolonged again and again. The timing is synchronized with the drug case.
The latest bail out proposal was on 12/23, 2009. The one before that was on 9/23/2009 when court prolonged the detaining for three months. (It coincidences with the Iran war date if you still remember that US gave Iran a three months ultimatum on 9/25/2009 that ends on 12/25/2009.) The court prolongs Chen's detaining for another two months which means Chen will be sentenced before February 23.
Another timing coincidence is the Patriot Act. The key section of Patriot Act was set to expire on 12/31/2009. As other plot failed to be carried out, it was extended too.
The House approved the Pentagon measure. "It also included short extensions of the USA Patriot Act ... and several other expiring laws and programs as well as two more months in jobless pay and health care for the unemployment." (San Jose Mercury News 12/17/09)
The controversial Patriot Act included with "library record", "roving wiretap" and "lone wolf" provisions. All these three, I think, are particular set up for me. (See " 231. Lone wolf (5/29), 334. Patriot Act meeting on 7/21 (8/17/05), 545. Warrantless wiretapping law and my case (3/19/08)")
Iran war attempt went soured; Robert Gates stays in post for another year. Patriot Act expired; it was temporary extended to early next year. The detaining of former Taiwan president Chen Shui-bian is prolonged to February 23. All are waiting for the Feds to frame a new drug case in early 2010. We all see Feds are working hard for it: Google's internet hacking case; Bin Laden's new tape announcement; and Haiti earthquake. They try to make it a big one to cover up a drug case because it is a framed one.
623. Embedded program (1/31/2010)
Decade ago, I have read a news said that there was a secret team which design special program embedded in electronic chips so in emergency, Pentagon could activate those spy program to paralyze enemy's electronic devices, computers and weapons. Since most computer microprocessors are supplied by US firm, US takes a big strategy advantage over other countries.
That strategy has been used in domestic surveillance.
Last year, I bought a pocket video camcorder. I use it to monitor the entry path of my home when I was out. I worry that the Feds may came to my house to do some perpetrate job. The camcorder shows a strange character. It works sometimes, but other times the memory was blackened with the word "File failed". Since each time I made sure the camcorder was working on "record" function, I think the Feds had remote controlled the camcorder with embedded program. They blackened the memory of the camcorder when they had activity in the yard.
Last year, I was blocked to internet for months with my home computer. I had to go to library. The public computer limited to two hours service, so I bought a notebook. There is no time limit for wireless service.
At the time when I looked for low priced notebook, an article in a Chinese newspaper I used to read said that the best quality notebook brands are Acer and Toshiba. The two were supplied by nearby store. It seems the Feds want me to choose from these two brands. At last I bought an Acer for its low price. Like that camcorder, this notebook gave me a lot of headache. The wireless function worked well on the first day, then for more than a week same function stopped working. Library staffs tried and failed too and said they didn't know why. Finally in a computer tutoring class, the instructor got it through by click on a link "Continue to this website (not recommended)." in a page "There is a problem with this website's security certificate.". So the notebook now can only go wireless in a tricky way with the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". But even that "not recommended" link once had disappeared and disabled wi-fi function. So I know any time the Feds could cut internet connection with their embedded program.
The new notebook also doesn't work with Microsoft Word because it requires the product key. The product key is stuck at the bottom of the computer, but it always has "incorrect key" result after I entering that code. They alter the original code in my notebook.
I don't think the camcorder and the computer have a mood like human that they take a rest if they are tired and return to work when they are happy. They are manipulated by embedded program.
Recently, the car produced by Toyota encountered with a big problem of sudden acceleration. The problem was reported long time ago, but Toyota couldn't find the cause. At first it blamed the episodes on floor mats that entrapped the pedals. Then it claims it was caused by sticky gas pedals.
Since the media make it a hot topic recently, I think the timing is very important. They have a purpose.
1. The US auto maker giants GM and Chrysler almost go bankruptcy last year if the government hadn't supported them with financial aid. To recover, US automakers have to take back the market share from their foreign rivals. Toyota is the biggest rival.
2. Japan and US have a dispute in its military base.
Quote, “US airbase tests relations with Japan
By Roland Buerk
BBC News, Tokyo
Last week, writing in the New York Times former Assistant Secretary of Defence Joseph Nye described the Pentagon as “properly annoyed” .
Then I saw such a report:
Quote, "No easy answer to why Toyota accelerators stick
Experts say it is likely a series of issues rather than a single problem
updated 4:15 p.m. PT, Thurs., Jan. 28, 2010
WASHINGTON - Nothing illustrates that more than the contradictory statements from the two companies involved. Toyota Motor Corp. is telling the government that it thinks a friction problem in its accelerator pedal mechanisms may make the pedal "harder to depress, slower to return, or, in the worst case, mechanically stuck in a partially depressed position."
CTS Corp., the Elkhart, Ind., supplier that makes the devices for Toyota, said in a statement Wednesday that the friction problem accounts for fewer than a dozen cases of stuck accelerators, "and in no instance did the accelerator actually become stuck in a partially depressed condition."
.....Outside safety experts say possible causes also include the complicated electronic sensors that relay the message from the gas pedal to the engine, the design and location of the sensor system, a lack of a fail-safe override mechanism, and even a certain media-fed awareness that puts more people on the lookout for the problem.
The mechanism of accelerator pedal is simple. How couldn’t a big firm with strong engineer resource find the fault? I believe what the CTS Corp says that it is not the pedal problem. When the acceleration system has a mood like my computer and my camcorder have, Toyota can never solve the problem.
