A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

.@Mar_Ex & .@BoycottHegemony what my analysis says that the expanding footprint of #CCPChina has progressively made inroads into a maritime area which is beyond not only #Chinese territorial waters but also its EEZ, largely for the two reasons Below :-

.@IndoPac_Info First, the country's rising energy requirements demand that it diversifies its source & the water of #SouthChinaSea are rich in hydrocarbons, oil n gases and much of this is still unexplored along with a sea bed in natural resources. (2/6)
.@Mar_Ex @BoycottHegemony
A greater political reach over this area would enable #CCPChina to draw on the reserves it requires. Second, one of the world's busiest shipping routes, the east-west route, passes through this area. Trade being essential for an economy like #Chinazi #China (3/6)

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony…

#Hongkonger ‘missing’ after crossing #Chinese checkpoint on mega bridge to #Macau

The man, surnamed Chan, was travelling by bus on Friday from Hong Kong to Macau, his son said.
“His last message said ‘I got arrested’,” the son said.…
The disappearance first emerged on Saturday when the man’s son told local media his father had texted to say he was being detained while passing through an artificial island manned by Chinese police on his way to the semi-autonomous city of Macau.
The artificial island in the middle of the Pearl River Delta lies in Chinese mainland waters.

Mainland police set up a new checkpoint there last week with X-ray machines and facial recognition checks ahead of an upcoming visit to Macau by President Xi Jinping.

#US #China tech war’s new battleground: undersea internet cables

The ambitions of #Chinese tech giants like #Huawei, which have laid thousands of kilometres of cable, are of increasing concern to Washington…
While the US has been upping the pressure on its allies not to include equipment made by Huawei and ZTE in their 5G systems, Chinese companies have gained a foothold in some of the world’s most essential communications infrastructure, undersea internet cables
Almost all global data communications flow through cables under the ocean – just one per cent travels by satellite – and Chinese companies have quietly been eroding US, European and Japanese dominance over the backbone of the internet, the undersea cable market.

#China wants to make protest-free #Macau its next #HongKong - A new stock exchange will be set up there

The push to develop financial infrastructure in Macau is to compensate for market disruptions in Hong Kong that could affect #Chinese businesses…
The idea is not for Macau to replace Hong Kong but for China to have a contingency plan in case the situation in Hong Kong worsens. Two officials who helped develop the Shanghai stock exchange moved to the territory this year to help establish a yuan-based stock exchange.
Macau's new exchange will initially be focused on bond trading to encourage local and Chinese companies to issue debt in the city, according to a Chinese official familiar with the matter.

And it can “look” like too many die due to “opioid abuse,” causing a crackdown on prescription drugs; when, in reality, HEROIN laced with deadly #Chinese or #Mexican FENTANYL is causing 96% of yearly overdose deaths, as opposed to 4% due to Rx abuse. This is why we need NUMBERS.
2/ There ARE drug companies who were less than scrupulous when their drugs were first manufactured. They need punishment. But driving them all out of business due to the transgressions of a few is unfair. We do not apply the death penalty across the board in prisons bc of those
3/ on death row. Neither should we relax all laws when dealing with hardened criminals who will get released only to be repeat offenders. I am a big believer in PROFILING because it WORKS. Again, show me some data on vaccines and the harm they do. Then we can talk from a point

ATL🇺🇸 in #HongKong: THREAD 1/n

Today SO MUCH in one short video:

* Melee of press, #police, protesters & tourists
* #HongKongProtester being arrested
* UK tourist watching atop the silver sculpture
* Sound of pepper spray being sprayed (fountain-style)
* Tear gas being shot
#HongKong THREAD 2/n

I'm not here to be at the front lines (this guy👇👇👇 is), but to visit with some #HongKongers & their supporters involved.

Think of it as American Thought Leaders🇺🇸, #HongKong Edition, & why not ATL🇺🇸—it's been said that this resembles, in some ways, 1776.
#HongKongProtests THREAD 3/n

Meet conflict reporter @Michael_Yon (with gas mask & orange vest) & #HongKong videographer Eric Fok @RazvenHK (donning mask).

Ok, before you meet them, meet the rather assertive #HongKongPolice. Big blue sign means "this protest is unauthorized."

The escalating violence in #HongKong is extremely concerning and the premeditated attack on university campuses, where over 1k rounds of teargas were used, raises disturbing questions as to whether the #Chinese govt’s strategy is to create more chaos & new protests. 1/5
Equally concerning is #Beijing’s announced plans to exercise more control over #HongKong politics, judiciary & educational system & to accelerate efforts to pass national security legislation that would further curtail free speech and civil liberties. 2/5
We condemn authorities’ use of excessive force and support demands for accountability, political dialogue, and the protection of democratic freedoms promised by #Beijing in the Sino-British Declaration, an international treaty. 3/5

When the new H-6N modification of China’s H-6K bomber appeared in September, observers quickly noted its bomb bay seemed to be removed in favor of an exterior hardpoint semi-conformed to the plane’s profile.
The images reportedly note only that the plane’s center-line pylon can be equipped with “large external objects,” but observers have noted the weapon’s incredibly similarity to the Dong Feng-15 ballistic missile already employed by China’s People’s Liberation Army Rocket Force.

#Bombshell: Ex-#DisneyStudios CEO, #RichardCook was found on the flight logs for #JeffreyEpstein’s #LolitaExpress to travel to #LittleSaintJames. #Disney owns #ABC who buried #Epstein’s crimes while children got raped & murdered! Cook started #Legendary pictures owned by #China!
I definitely think there is something fishy here. #DickCook started off as a monorail operator at #Disneyland. How does someone go from running a train at an amusement park to heading distribution for Disney films within 10 years? Are they promoting #Pedophiles from within?!

Thread: #Chinese oil survey ship finally leaves #Vietnam controlled waters after months-long stand-off - Analyst says it is now ‘very likely’ that #China will send an oil rig to drill in the area where the Haiyan Dizhi 8 has been conducting seismic surveys…
The Chinese vessel, the Haiyang Dizhi 8, was speeding away from Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone towards China on Thursday morning under the escort of at least two other Chinese ships, according to data from Marine Traffic, a website that tracks vessel movements.
“China doesn’t want any non-Asean companies to drill for oil in the South China Sea,” said Ha Hoang Hop, a member of the International Institute for Strategic Studies. China only withdrew the vessel soon after the oil rig Hakuryu-5 completed its drilling at Vietnam’s Block 06.1.

While Australia’s federal government has a critical eye on Chinese investment, declining to sign on to the Belt & Road Initiative & blocking Chinese bids for 5G & electricity networks, some individual states & territories are laying out the welcome mat, shrugging off concerns.
“This is in large part because the state and territory governments have a very strong focus on economic questions with little focus on questions of security or strategy, whereas Canberra’s approach to China has become very heavily influenced by security agencies.”

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Thursday that the league rejected demands from Chinese government officials to fire Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey over his Oct. 4 tweet in support of pro-democracy protestors in Hong Kong.
“We made clear that we were being asked to fire him, by the Chinese government, by the parties we dealt with, government and business,” Silver said during an appearance at the Time 100 Health Summit in New York City.
