As Beijing flexes its muscles and pushes territorial claims, the U.S. Vice President needs to reassure allies and make full use of his rapport with Chinese President Xi JinpingU.S. Vice President Joseph Biden Jr.’s trip to Asia was supposed to be about mutually beneficial trade partnerships, the tastiness of U.S. agricultural exports and a dose of good ol’ American love for a region that has been feeling a little neglected lately. Instead, his Asia excursion, which includes stops in Japan, China and South Korea, has been dominated by a regional security crisis that some fear could spark armed conflict involving the world’s three biggest economies.

NTEB News Desk -Hollywood is an Illuminati hotbed. Riven with symbols, secret messages and evocative imagery; this year’s Kardashians’ Christmas card is a radical departure from their classic glamorous ensemble shot.
Composed by Kanye West’s favorite photographic auteur, David LaChapelle, the complicated scene is a muddle of intriguing narratives that suggest there’s a wry commentary on the nature of the reality family’s fame at play; and perhaps even a message from secret society, The Illuminati.
