#Bernie2020 is also following right along with #China/Communist Party’s 2050 world domination plan with his own #GreenScam.

Funny how all the #Democrats and Europe are so hell bent on helping China and Russia, who aren’t following the “green rules” try to weaken the US.
And there it is...more “free stuff” from Bernie, lmao. Funny because I recently said Dems would be giving away “free” cars next.

Ohh, but he doesn’t stop there. He’s also promising free heating and cooling.
More “free” stuff that the MIDDLE CLASS would end up paying for.

More strict regulations on businesses, forcing them to go 100% green, which, of course, would also mean their costs would be passed along to us.

I keep hearing a lot of #HongKongProtestors makint statements about "CHINESE GENOCIDE AGAINST THE UIGHUR MUSLIMS" if that's true, why is there a revival of #Islam in #China right now?…
Chinese laws and actually, Communist Laws in general forbid persecution of ethnic groups as well as religions.The Uighur in Prison right now are there due to committing crimes which include Jihadist activity. The group that claims it's a genocidal campaign is "Human Rights Watch"
and this organization was caught lying about Left Wing governments in the past already. Meanwhile they have been silent about actual genocide committed by American Allies or US sponsored Dictatorships. So long story short : No, there is no genocide or concentration camps. It's bs

On Aug 20 @MSNBC’s Rachel #Maddow did a half-hour segment attacking The Epoch Times based on an NBC news “investigative report” from earlier that day. (Thread 👇)
The crux of #Maddow's attack is an attempt to conflate programming of the NTD digital show Edge of Wonder, an entertainment show that explicitly focuses on the most audacious conspiracy theories out there, with #EpochTimes journalism.
We explained the fact that Edge of Wonder is an entertainment show not connected with #EpochTimes to the relevant #NBC journalists in a Jun 20 statement. They chose to ignore this.

Seeing the success of The Epoch Times as America’s fastest-growing newspaper, @NBCNews has published a hit-piece that is riddled with inaccuracies, blatant errors, and misrepresentations.

(Thread 👇)…
@NBCNews NBC News mischaracterizes our subscription campaigns for our print newspaper. We provided @NBCNews with a statement back in June to clarify this, but they chose to ignore it—against well established journalistic practices.…
While The Epoch Times has been at the forefront of covering the actions taken by officials in the Obama admin targeting the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, @NBCNews is refusing to look at verifiable evidence and simply dismisses this reporting as a “conspiracy theory.”

Spent more time on #China accounts. So, by the account creation dates, most of the accounts (418) were created in 2017 - one dated back to 2007. However, that doesn't mean that they were tweeting about Chinese politics, or even controlled by China, back then. That's important.
Filtering the tweet text for variants on HK, Hong Kong, etc (in English! someone else should do this in Chinese...beyond my skills), there is a batch of tweets (~400) related to HK from 2017. BUT! Those are about sports and tourism. Bots tweeting ab HK Disney etc.
Then there is another batch related to Hong Kong in 2019. Those are about politics and related to the protests.

There are signs of coordinated amplification there: ie, two accounts, @ctcc507 and @feituji1994, were amplified by others in the data set. Some replied, others RT'd.

Getting into the #China social media manipulation data set now! Fascinating stuff in the Twitter content. First, the attributed accounts include personas claiming to be located all over the world, including in the US, created back in 2009/2010.
This is interesting. Several researchers commented on the extremely flimsy, weak accts spreading disinfo about the HK protests over the past week. Obvious propaganda pushers. Those activities likely triggered this broader review & burned the better ones
There are often two parallel efforts happening in disinformation campaigns: social platform/persona activity, and propagandist media narrative activity. China's had capabilities in both for quite a while; its internally-focused comment army (50 cent) has been around since ~2004.

The West, being overtaken by China & those allied with it has repeatedly signaled its intent to weaken those rising to threaten its continued ability to be World Control HQ.

The East has largely until recently hoped for a change of heart & a return to sanity.

The East doesn't wish conflict, it wants stability, strong relationships, security & trade.

The West has shown time after time its malign intention, to disrupt & destabilize, creating chaos, organizing provocations, sanctioning, sabotaging, ever threatening war.

Color revolutions have become the West’s favored means of undermining nations & replacing governments.

The fomented insurrection occurring now in Hong Kong is another example of its cynical attempt to generate chaos with a view to furthering western aims.

This brave #Uyghur #Muslim girl, still resides in #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan is indicating that four of her relatives are in #China's #ConcentrationCamps. She obviously wants the world to know regardless of what might happen to her, PLEASE SHARE for her sake.

Clip 2: There are more "witness testimonials" coming right out of #Xinjiang aka #EastTurkestan. They don’t saying anything but it's written all over their faces, clearly sending a message to the outside world that all is not good.

Thread: Trump administration plans $8 billion fighter jet sale to #Taiwan, angering #China - Tough, let China get angry…
The Trump administration is pressing ahead with an $8 billion sale of new 66 F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan, a move likely to raise strong objections from China amid the deepening trade dispute between Washington and Beijing.
The State Department submitted the package to Congress for informal review late Thursday, and its not expected to meet opposition, according to US officials & other people familiar with the matter. It would be the largest and most significant sale of weaponry to Taiwan in decades

That the nation needs to replace Trump because of all the horrible things he is doing.

And other than personal attacks, name-calling & false accusations that are easily disproven, THEY NEVER ANSWER THE QUESTION.

So, what "horrible" things are they talking about?

Thread: Dual diplomatic Recognition of both #China & #Taiwan: Could Taiwan Countenance the Idea? The zero-sum game in the Taiwan Strait has outlived its usefulness and no longer reflects reality.…
2: The zero-sum game in the Taiwan Strait has outlived its usefulness and no longer reflects reality. Taipei should make it clear that it is willing to think creatively about the problem. Offering the possibility of dual recognition would be a step in that direction.
3: For decades now, Taipei & Beijing have played a zero-sum game in the political sphere & everybody is keeping count. Every loss of an official diplomatic ally of Taiwan is marked off as a win for the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

Ever since #HongKong's protests began, I often got asked why the city's tycoons have stayed silent.

Today, HK's richest man Li Ka-shing has published two separate msgs on front pages newspapers across political spectrum.

Here are some interpretation on the 91-yo's wisdom:
The colour msg is more direct. It says “violence” with a cross through it, flanked by slogans calling for loving China and HK, and “stop anger and violence in the name of love”.
What not to miss is that it also says "the worst fruit [result] could be bore from the best cause".
The black-and-white msg is what left people guessing. It begins with: "As I have said before", & 8 Chinese characters: “The melon of Huangtai cannot bear the picking again.”

Li has used this line in addressing contentious political issues before. This is the story behind it:

The answer - Yes. I think the EU will be in a recession with little to do about it (because their credit markets are already a mess) than to print money that will eventually devalue the Euro and only be a temporary fix. 2) #EURecession
I believe the UK will have a recession if they cannot find a solution to Brexit that does not solve the Irish issue, but if that issue is solved, and deals are made with North America and the Commonwealth, that can be reversed. 3) #BREXIT #Irish #US #Recession
