  •  This was a second conference organized in Moscow by Russia’s Anti-Globalist Movement, a small anti-American group. 
  • During a conference dubbed the Dialogue of Nations, Louis Marinelli, head of the Yes California group  said they are determined to hold the Golden State’s “independence referendum” in 2019.
  • “For the first time in history, we, the people of California, who were conquered and annexed by the American military about 170 years ago, will have a chance to express our voice to either remain a state in the American union, or instead, to pursue a path toward a nationhood,” Marinelli said solemnly.
  • The crowd cheered and applauded again, louder, when Nate Smith, a self-proclaimed “foreign minister” of the Texas Nationalist Movement, promised that one day, the independent Lone Star state 
  • “can formally exchange ambassadors with your free and independent countries.”

Hollywood’s dangerous obsession with China
Outside a Beijing movie theater

American film studios are playing a leading role in the growing strategic and ideological competition between China and the U.S., and Washington is taking note. Sixteen members of Congress wrote a letter calling for scrutiny of Chinese investments in the U.S. film industry, and former Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) wants a review of Hollywood’s pursuit of Chinese box office. “By controlling the financing and distribution of American movies [in China],” Wolf wrote in a recent Washington Post op-ed, “and [by] subjecting them to censorship..., Beijing could effectively dictate what is and isn’t made.”
In 2017, China’s box office receipts are expected to surpass America’s. Already, a movie cannot break box office records unless it plays in China...  The problem is compounded because China might object to anything — its censors don’t explain their decisions. The result is that Hollywood is allowing China to determine which movies get made.
