Hundreds of Migrants Feared to Have Drowned off the coast of Italy

This is terrible! I watched the scene on TV just a few minutes ago, when that fishing boat tipped off the coast of the Lampedusa island in the south waters of Italy. Most of the people on deck survived, but it seems that hundreds were bellow deck and could do nothing once that the shipped flipped over.

There has to be some sort of prevention where the African governments should stop these immigrants from crossing the Mediterranean sea as a third of the ships/boats never make the trip, hundreds drown every month. Only last year around 2,300 immigrants lost their lives in this stretch of water.

I understand that they’re looking for a better life, that they want to come to Europe to get away from wars and hunger, but 5% of them die in the waters and the remaining 95% get sent back home now anyways.

If you try and put yourself in their shoes you’ll understand that for them its worth the risk, when you have nothing in your life and nothing to lose then you’ll try anything and take any risk to make your life better.

Lets hope that these scenes that I just watched on TV will never happen again!


Hands up, how many of you are going to watch tomorrow evening’s champions league final

champions league

I had to admit that I am not a massive soccer fan, however I do follow events like the World Cup for the MLS playoffs, and in this case also the champions league final, the most bizarre thing about this particular final, is that the two teams that will challenge one another all the trophy with the big ears are both from the same country, even more bizarre they are both from the same city.

It is a matter of fact that tomorrow evening at 8:45 PM local time Atletico Madrid will be challenging Real Madrid and believe it or not this would actually be the second time that the two teams have actually in a champions league final.

The odds are leaning towards Real Madrid, however I personally believe that Atletico Madrid A very good shot at it, considering that they are in my opinion the team that is more physically informed at this time and I have a funny impression that they are definitely more motivated than Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates.

It is said that 1.7 billion people will be connected and will be watching the final, last year’s final between Barcelona and Juventus was followed by 2 billion, and before the actual final started the estimated 1.5 billion, therefore we could see possibly 2.2 billion people from all over the world in and watching the game on television.

It is European soccer’s biggest event of the year, but if you check out the numbers it is by far the soccer events of the year excluding of course when national themes compete, just like we will see in a few weeks time the final stages of the European cup in Paris where 16 nations will clash to win the title of champions of Europe.


Italian soccer hooligans are totally out of control

I’m really not sure if we can actually categorize this article as sport, basically it’s just common criminals that use sports and stadiums to commit crimes.
I was watching a French channel on satellite television earlier on this morning where they were talking about an Italian soccer hooligans convicted to 26 years in prison for killing another soccer fans, it does happen very often in South America and in Europe, however the dynamics of this particular homicide were very bizarre.

It was May of two years ago that Naples and Florence were playing the Italian cup finals in Italy’s capital Rome. The fans reach the capital by most in buses and coaches, one of the buses full of Napoli fans was attacked by several not Florence fans but local fans in the city of Rome that supports AS ROMa.

At first the bus was attacked by seven of these Roma fans, that new explosive devices under the bus causing a reaction, that reaction was a clash between the rival fans right there on the streets, it was at that point where one of the Roma fans pulled out a gun and opened fire killing a 21-year-old and leaving several others injured.

This Roma fans well-known to police and legal authorities for his numerous crimes in the past was obviously immediately arrested and incarcerated until his trial that ended today with his conviction of 26 years in prison.

The surprising fact is that the person convicted you would think he was a youngster, somebody in his early 20s, that would not be the fact, he is 54 years of age, that just shows how bizarre this situation is and how easy it is to lose your life by going to a soccer game in Italy or anywhere else in Europe.

While here in the United States dolphin fans six next to buccaneer fans and most probably share a beer, while over there in Europe soccer fans will share insults and in some cases stab each other.


So what brought down Egypt air flight 804?

In the past three days there has been a massive amount of speculation regarding this tragedy. First of all my thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families and friends that are suffering in this moment. I can only imagine how much grief they are going through right now.

I have personally had the opportunity to talk to a commercial airline pilot yesterday evening and we obviously discussed this latest tragedy and he actually came to the conclusion that without the black boxes there is really not that much that we can say, with the information gathered so far, the airline captain confirmed that there must have been some sort of explosion on board, because an aircraft cannot decrease its height is rapidly unless it puts itself into a deep dive or if it has lost extreme pressure either in the pilot Cabin or the fuselage itself.

Egypt air flight 804

From what we understand the United States has sent two submarines in the search the black boxes and if found will hand them over and to the Egyptian authorities and have given their full cooperation in the case that the Egyptian government may need it.

The next question would be: If it wants a terrorist attack, if it was some sort of explosive device on board, somebody has to explain to me how on earth did it get on board the aircraft at de Gaulle airport in Paris, the claim that they have the tightest security in any airports around the world. However, this aircraft was traveling from Egypt to Paris and then from Paris back to Cairo, so some experts say that somebody could have planted the explosive device with a timer in Egypt with security is extremely low, where basically anyone can get on board with anything.

I will be flying from Los Angeles to London tomorrow and of course after the latest facts I really do not have peace of mind knowing that I am flying in an aircraft for 16 hours.


French police force claim that their officers are exhausted

I was watching just a few moments ago the situation in Paris, where people are protesting against the police claiming that they are rude, Brazil and extremely impatient.
Police responded with tear gas, pepper spray and a good beating with their batons.

However the situation among the national police force in France got to the point where 95% of the officers claim that they are exhausted, and average on 18 hours a week over time her officer, in some places like the suburbs of Paris where there is a high concentration of the Muslim community, police officers are forced to work up to 65 hours a week.

So I asked myself why on earth are they not hiring more police officers, the answer to that would be that they are, however they need at least another 11,000 new police officers just to cover central France and another 22,000 police officers to cover nationwide, it takes months to train a police officer anywhere in the world, especially in France with police training last 18 weeks and then after that trainees are put on the street as observers and not an official police officers for another six weeks.

police harass friends terrorism exhausted

So basically what we have here is the first cadets are actually graduating and becoming official police officers at this time, the first wave of new police officers however is just over 500 units and therefore can barely cover a small portion of the French capital, the Ministry of internal affairs claim that they will have a new way within the next two weeks and so on until he reached the number of 22,000 new police officers put on the streets, however that will take roughly another year.

You also have to keep in mind that the UEFA European cup ornament will be held in France in just a month’s time and with roughly 1.6 million soccer fans entering the country the need for appropriate security is needed absolutely.

It is said that during the games 22% on security forces will be military personnel that is mostly trained for counterterrorism and special ops, so at least during this sports events the situation seems to be covered and partially under control.

France but especially Paris has shown to be extremely vulnerable, it is an easy target for terrorists considering that 10% of the capital population was not born in France but in Muslim nations and another 15% off French Muslims most of which hates France and believe in Jihad.

To be honest I would attend any of the soccer games even if I was given a free flight, hotel and a top-notch tickets for the stadium, and to be honest I have suggested to my friends over in Europe that should be attending the gains that Italy will be playing not to go for obvious security breaches and how easy it is to attack civilians in such a large and totally undefended city.


Donald Trump wants to Join Forces with Putin and Russia.

First of all laugh at the image I posted in this article and don’t be offended by it LOL! I got it off this Alternative News website that I have among my bookmarks and is a daily read since 2012 when I first landed on it. It’s the news told the way the news actually happened, with no political diversions or editing. It’s real news and thats how the news really should be told IMO!

trump putin funny thomas f cheng

So what is it now with Donald Trump, he really wants to become one of the closest allies of President Putin of Russia? Thats what it seems, however, I’m not saying its a bad idea, or a good one, what I’m asking is why he wants this.

Well he has said it more than once that he wants to join forces with Russia to fight ISIS, thats not a bad idea, if you take into consideration that Russia has a massive influence in the region and has fast access to getting the job done fast as it’s boarders are closer to the region as well, not to mention that they’re the second strongest military power in the world.

But the biggest issue at this time for Donald Trump is more about the Muslim ban he would like to put into action in the case of the actually becomes president of our nation, already the Prime Minister of Great Britain has given his remarks claiming that Donald Trump’s “Muslim ban is in the lunacy” Not to mention our friends to the south of our border claim that building a wall and enforcing Mexico to pay for it is an act of war.

It is quite likely that he will be the GOP nominee for president, but what I read today on CBS news the majority of the GOP could create their own candidate and have them run as an independent Republican, I don’t know how that works but CBS is an certainly Fox news, it is definitely more open widely to both sides and therefore I can give some credibility to what they are looking into right now.

The good thing about Donald Trump is that you can actually talk about him for hours on end without getting tired, basically every single interview that the man gives, every single handled the man visits, something new pops up, except for his returns obviously LOL.


George Zimmerman is auctioning off the gun that was used to kill Trayvon Martin

I found out about this news on Facebook, I was going through the latest news and noticed that CBS has posted an article regarding the fact that this gun was going up for auction. I commented claiming that even if it may seem immorally wrong too many of us that Zimmerman would actually auction off the weapon used to take the life of Martin, he was not however breaking any federal or state laws by doing so.

To be honest I wish I never even commented as such, as I was verbally beat up by many people that thought that my words were to backup Zimmerman in his actions, however mine was just a comment that constitutionally he is not breaking any law by doing so, therefore I opened the discussion also on my official Thomas F. Cheng Facebook page and there comments were a lot more pain I was definitely not run around the page and insulted like I was earlier on before on the official CVS Facebook page.

Trayvon Martin

I always like bringing up touchy situation, because I want to see the opinion of every American regarding the matters, but at the same time I always appreciate if everybody will respond in an orderly fashion in a respectful way and I would also like them to read and comprehend the word before attacking somebody.

I myself have never fought into this case unless and the opinion of others, I was not there I don’t know what happens and to be honest I really wouldn’t like to be there and, all I said once and I repeat that Zimmerman simply by auctioning off this weapon is not breaking any laws.


It is getting closer to a Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump stand off

So there it is, it really does seem that the numbers are in favor of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, all they need is a handful more of delegates and the job should be done. I noticed that a lot of my Bernie Sanders followers on my official Thomas F. Cheng twitter page are really not happy, however I do have a question and I will be posting about this on all my social media pages and not only my twitter account, the question would be: Would have Bernie Sanders being a social liberal, what he had the upper hand on Donald Trump? Some of the most recent and accurate polls say no, while other polls claim that Hillary Clinton will win in a landslide over Donald Trump considering the 80% of women prefer her rather than him and 51% of them have the right to vote are women, and it is said that 57% of all voters in the next election will be women.

Hillary Clinton Donald Trump presidential race
Let’s remember that Paul had never been accurate, if you think that ex-New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani at the start of the campaign eight years ago was considered by most of the polls to win the GOP in a heartbeat, we all know that never happened.

I have another question: with Donald Trump not being a politician and ending up at the base face-to-face with Hillary Clinton, that has been in New York senator eight years, had been also the first lady eight years and therefore she was in the White House to turn, and also being Secretary of State for four years, makes her 100% a politician, 100% with a politician background, she is used to being in debate, she has learned how to have the right question ready at the right time, therefore I see Donald Trump in disarray when it comes down to face-to-face debates with a woman has so much experience in politics while on the other side Donald is without doubt a great businessman but is at his first steps in politics.

As many of you already know, I am still undecided and most probably will be for a very long time before what I am saying right now is from the heart, what I’m saying right now has no political preference, this is something that we will never know until the first debate, we all thought the Joe Biden was going to slice into pieces Sarah Palin, we all know that didn’t happen, even if she came out slightly defeated, she was not cut up into small dice pieces like the majority of us thought that she would.

So do you see where I’m going with this? Yes on one side we have an extremely experienced politician and on the other side we have one of the most creative and decorated businessman the United States has ever seen, as of right now she looks like she’s in favor, but as you can see things can drastically change, hamburger conflict easily, so as of today even if the majority of the polls say she is going to win over Donald Trump in a landslide, I still say it is 50-50, and I’m ready to bet that it will be until we see them confronting one another face-to-face in an official debate.

Feel free to visit one of my social media pages and joining the discussion!


So basically the Donald Trump situation has become a little tricky for the GOP.

Obviously this is my personal opinion and still as of today I am totally neutral and undecided on who I may vote for in November, but at the following in-depth the whole Donald from situation, because it has become a situation, I have come to these conclusions even if they may sound like speculation I’m sure that there are many of my readers that would agree with what I Have to say.

Let’s say for some crazy reason Donald Trump doesn’t make the 50% delegate milestone, and he will have to go to the convention to convince the superdelegates to give him the nomination, however it would be only right that he had nomination considering that the majority of the American voters in all the primaries around the country voted mostly for him. However it seems that the GOP may not be taking that direction…

… It seems that the GOP is a pain to the superdelegates deciding today” Donald Trump to the side and replace him maybe with Romney or even the speaker of the house Paul Ryan. Obviously many would think that job would be done and that the so-called most dangerous Donald Trump would be out on the way. Not too fast!

If that was to take place then the majority of the Donald Trump supporters and sympathizers would be outrage and in their eyes it would look like he was in legitimately remove and replace with someone that did absolutely nothing during the campaign to deserve that position and of course the nomination. Many Republicans would not go to vote in this case, some specialists say that up to 15% of the Republican sympathizers would not vote.

Donald Trump is a loose cannon as many journalists describe, so what if not loose cannon then decides to run as an independent and take roughly 22% up to 35% of Republican voters is way, that would mean for the Democratic Party ever it will be either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders would win my absolute majority landslide, some even say that the Republican Party would end up in third place after the independence.

Not only the GOP would lose total credibility, the Republican Party would most probably fall apart, and to rebuild that trust in those roughly 50% of Americans therefore 155 million voters, it could even take decades.

So do you see where I’m going with this and why I say that the situation surrounding Donald Trump has become extremely tricky, none of the party leaders want him as president and I repeat not one of them, but they might have to bite their tongues close their eyes and turned the other way because it seems the alternatives to bring Republican Party total destruction.


It seems like yesterday, but 5 years ago today Osama bin Laden was located and killed

To be honest if you had told me minutes before that the president of the United States was going to go on a live broadcast on every national channels radio and television to announce that American special forces and located the compound of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan and eliminated, I quite frankly would have never believed it. But when I saw the president giving a short three minute speech, I have to say I was very impressed first of all on how the operation was organized and how it took place, but most of all the incredible secrecy that surrounded the whole operation that was going on therefore being organized for months prior to the actual blitz.

As we speak I’m preparing a video that remembers this historical moment on the Thomas F. Cheng YouTube channel, but I really haven’t updated that much recently but from now onwards I thought I would post an original video at least once every other week seen as I have thousands of followers on all my social media pages and therefore it’s a good thing not just to discuss and debate but at the same time to post some videos created by me and my staff that I’m sure you will find a great interest.
