An official newspaper group of the Chinese Communist Party posted surveillance images of the U.S. Nellis Air Force base in Nevada, the same day that the New York Times reported that China broke up a major CIA intelligence ring in Beijing.
People’s Daily, China posted the surveillance images Saturday night. The images are detailed enough to show U.S. war planes in high detail.

“That’s a really strong move,” a military source tells Big League Politics. “The Chinese typically do not brag about their capabilities and they typically emphasize the defensive nature of their military resources, so posting these photos of a strategically vital American air force base is completely out of character with the way China has been presenting itself on the world stage.”
The Chinese taunt comes the same day as a New York Times report, which detailed how China “dismantled C.I.A. spying operations in the country starting in 2010, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources over two years and crippling intelligence gathering there for years afterward.”
Biden White House Makes YouTube Upload of Inaugural Speech ‘Unlisted’ After Being Flooded With Dislikes
The Inaugural Address wasn’t well received.
Joe Biden’s White House staff privatized an upload of his inaugural address from the White House YouTube page, after the video was rationed with a wave of dislikes.
As of late Wednesday night, Biden’s Inaugural Address has more than 17,000 dislikes, and less than 4,000 likes. Sensing that the public wasn’t responding positively, the Biden administration made the video “unlisted” some time after its initial streaming.
In a legally questionable development, the Biden White House staff have also disabled comments on the Inaugural Address. Court rulings previously forced the Trump administration to unblock fanatic liberal reply guys on Twitter, with judges ruling that they had the right to engage with the President on the platform.
The inaugural address is accessible here.
The poor reaction may have come in part from the existing YouTube subscriber demographic of the White House channel, which was primarily composed of Trump supporters. Other uploads of Biden’s Inaugural Address on the YouTube channels of mainstream media networks have a more favorable like-to-dislike ratio.
The takedown of the video could ultimately be challenged under a 2018 court ruling establishing presidential social media accounts as public forums, with comments enabled. Biden will have to face criticism- even on his official internet presence- as President.
