The attempts to bring down this federal government have been relentless. Day by day, one op after another. The continuous feeding of bad faith reporting & propaganda in #cdnmedia. All with the aim of installing the #CPC. A manifestly unfit party & leader who courts RW extremists
The efforts to topple this gov’t, of course, includes FI. Threat activity (esp online) from 🇷🇺🇨🇳, in addition to the 🇺🇸 RW operations of billionaire-backed networks like the Koch Network & others. But also Saudi & Iranian operations, have all played a part. #cdnpoli #CdnNatSec
Back in 2021 #elxn44, CSE & CSIS warned of the strategy of threat actors to discredit fairness of democratic elections themselves. @selectedwisdom summed up the ultimate objective of discrediting free & fair elections - to breed apathy & stop participation in democracy #CdnNatSec

I’m re-upping some recent 🧵 in light of more reckless reporting from Sam Cooper @globalnews. Cooper’s recent piece does not cite A SINGLE actionable piece of evidence. Nor is there ANY mention of the degree of confidence of the intelligence or whether it had even been assessed.
2 leakers disseminate selected intelligence of unknown confidence to Fife & Cooper, 2 reporters the leakers knew would do exactly what was predicable. The groupthink inability to employ critical reasoning from within #CdnMediaFailed, ensued. #cdnpoli
The one leaker wrote an op-ed in which the leaker’s political agenda, self-righteousness & sanctimony, were revealed.
Again I will say, there hasn’t been any actionable evidence put forward at any time from @globalnews or @globeandmail. #CdnMediaColludes #cdnpoli

20 years ago, Colin Powell addressed the UN Security Council to make a case for war. Serving as the frontman for Bush’s admin, to convince the world of the dangers of Iraq & WMDs.

Powell believed what he was saying, based on what? Intelligence provided to him #Cdnpoli #CdnNatSec ImageImageImageImage
That faulty intelligence had been assessed, & yet, it was a lie that had catastrophic effects on the world. Cost over $1.2 T 💵. A million lives lost.
Today in 🇨🇦 we have a far less catastrophic, yet still important, peddling of intelligence - of unknown confidence. #CdnNatSec Image
We are to accept as fact documents shown to handpicked reporters. From an unknown source getting labeled a “whistleblower”, when that is not what this is. A leaker is not a whistleblower. They do not receive whistleblower protections. #cdnpoli #CdnNatSec ImageImageImage

So yesterday I was fed a story in my news app that enraged me. #Cdnmedia is in a crisis. The rank inability to employ logical reasoning, the pushing of a narrative for political ends, is not reporting. It is propaganda & it misinforms the public, not the opposite. #cdnpoli ImageImage
It was more shockingly poor reporting on Chinese interference, implying a connection where no factual evidence is provided. Merely a faulty attempt to draw conclusions without substantiating anything. Just garbage reporting. #CdnmediFailed #cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage
The article even admits it has no evidence, merely wild speculation implying that the drop in #Conservative votes is due to a vague implication of Chinese interference. Chiu lost & because he lives in a RW bubble, imagines that it must be “interference”…#CdnMediaFailed #cdnpoli ImageImage

A reality we all need to wake up to. We’re living in an information war that’s only going to accelerate. 🇨🇳,🇷🇺 & the political right, along with other malign actors, are waging this war. 🇨🇦 has a naive, gullible &/or complicit #cdnmedia that far too often, falls for #InfoOps.
Link to the NYT article….

Or a reprint (not paywalled)…
The AI technology is only going to become more sophisticated. The West is failing to recognize & keep up with the mass scale manipulation & information warfare threatening democracies around the world. #cdnpoli #InfoOps #CdnNatSec

1. Pulling together my recent🧵s on this latest #Cdnmedia China saga that has much broader implications re #CdnNatSec, political operatives, breaking the law to leak to journalists with political motives.

Remember who #RobertFife is.
Fife implied China had the ability to choose 🇨🇦’s government right down to whether majority or minority. Utterly reckless nonsense. Of course, Fife offered not one single shred of factual evidence. #Cdnpoli #CdnMediaFailed
3. The reporting on this story is off & there is so much that is suspect. Resurfacing allegations that are not new. Why? Why now? By whom?#POECreport #FluTruxKlan #ChristineAnderson #Cdnpoli #cdnmedia

Something else in this CSIS/Fife story, doesn’t pass the smell test & once again, demonstrates #CdnMediaFailed. Who keeps being interviewed by @globalnews & others? None other than Richard Fadden. The former Harper appointee of @csiscanada, later Harper NatSec advisor. #cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage
Richard Fadden was also Harper’s Deputy Minister of National Defence from 2013 to 2015. He was also Harper’s Associate Secretary to the Cabinet.

Fadden was also Harper’s Deputy Minister of Citizenship & Immigration Canada from 2006 to 2009. #cdnpoli #CdnNatSec ImageImageImage
As we all know, there is zero chance that Harper would have anyone in his tight inner circle appointed to multiple positions without being a #Conservative partisan, which Fadden is. He worked closely with Jason Kenney (particularly), Vic Toews & Peter Van Loan also. #cdnpoli Image

I very much agree with this important point from Stephanie Carvin. Something is off here. Also, what’s behind resurfacing a nearly 3.5 year old allegation? This doesn’t pass the smell test for me. #cdnpoli #CdnNatSec #cdnmedia @csiscanada
Dong defeated current #CPC comms director, Sarah Fisher, in the 2019 election in question. You may know Fischer from her vocal support of the #FluTruxKlan destabilization operation that cost 🇨🇦 billions & provided a-bombs of disinformation to the political right, including 🇷🇺&🇨🇳.
Another thing, as @dadinthe6 pointed out. This alleged “help” by PRC, came 8 months after 🇨🇳 vowed retaliation against 🇨🇦’s Liberal gov’t for the detention of Meng Wenzhou?…
The Trump admin requested the detention of MZ, 🇨🇦’s then AG, JWR, complied #cdnpoli

More on Christine Anderson. Why is this German neo-Nazi on a money making tour of 🇨🇦 & why are children being used in her malignant grift operation? #cdnpoli #CdnNatSec #cdnmedia #DemocracyUnderThreat
Children were also used/abused in the #FluTruxKlan op. The use of children in the schemes is repugnant. #cdnpoli
One of the sponsors of Christine Anderson’s Christo-fascist grift tour, has set up a GiveSendGo to pay for their sponsorship?? It hasn’t made any money, so where’s the money coming from? Hotels, dinners, venue fees, flights. Have enough people been buying the $200 - $325 tickets?

Why is far right German member of European Parliament & Russian asset, Christine Anderson, posting pictures of herself with Tamara Lich & #JCCF’s Keith Wilson yesterday?

Interesting to note, Lich helped start #WEXIT. The global far right is Putin’s ace in the hole. #cdnpoli
But here’s ADF’s Christine Anderson with another man. A Quebec resident named Kim Tsoj. He posts about Christine Anderson a lot. #FreeDumbConvoy #cdnpoli #CdnFarRight

Claiming China had the ability to chose 🇨🇦’s gov’t right down to whether minority or majority, it utter nonsense. How was this done, exactly? Someone @csiscanada showed #RobertFife “top secret”materials? Is that legal? How did Fife obtain clearance to view such material? #cdnpoli
We all witnessed a tsunami of disinformation & info ops AGAINST the Liberals in the last 2 elections. We saw attacks & manufactured “scandals”. I monitored multiple media sites & don’t recall disinformation about the #CPC in the almost entirely #Conservative owned #cdnmedia.
This recent skewed piece by #RobertFife has a political agenda. China absolutely interferes, as does Russia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Israel, UAE & of course, the networks of US billionaires (ie Koch Network). But to suggest 🇨🇳 was able to choose our gov’t is suspicious as hell….

A big ol' whopping $2.7 million for ISS end-user devices for the integrated soldier system.

Coincidentally, I am writing a paper about the integrated soldier system and cyber. So let's take a look together!

#cdnnatsec #canmiltwitter #cdnpoli
So what is the Integrated Soldier System (ISS)?

In modern warfare, when the military tries to connect everything to everything, the ISS is the military's (notably the Canadian Army) to turn soldiers into walking sensors.

But what does this mean?…
Remember the game of telephone? Where a message moves along and changes little by little until, at the very end, the message is completely different.

Now imagine a similar game of telephone when soldiers attempt to communicate intelligence to an aircraft or artillery.

Recently the MIT Tech Review released their global cyber defense ratings, which ranked Canada as the 5th top country contributing to cyber defense.

I am here to tell you and explain how this is completely false.

#cdnpoli #cdnnatsec #cyberdefense #CDNdigital Image
Canada deserves a good score because of its private sector, but the federal government's policies and direction of cyber defense is ad hoc, shallow, and broadly lacks coherent direction or recognition of cyberspace as a threat environment.
There is a lot to discuss, but I'll focus on cloud networking.

On paper there is a lot of good that Canada has planned, it is working towards a classified defense cloud network in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), but last I heard the estimate for delivery/completion is 2030.

1. Something that repeatedly struck me listening to #EmergenciesActInquiry testimony. References kept being made about the huge followings the convoy organizers had on social media. There are many ways foreign adversaries & “foreign actors” can give in-kind ‘donations’ #CdnNatSec
2. “Backing” is one way of giving covert assistance to operations like #FluTruxKlan. Troll factory operations of threat actors can “back” social media accounts, boosting their megaphone & exploiting algorithms so that many people view these accounts as important. @POECommission
3. 1,000s of 🤖 can be used to bridge groups together, creating complex networks that appear organic, but are not. Once these networks are formed, an echo-chamber follows. Disinformation is then fed into the network. This is a malign “donation” that ultimately translates into💰.

This report from @OttawaPolice is not an intelligence report. It is a propaganda report. Shocking in its bias, faulty information, logically fallacious, willful blindness & a rank inability to assess the situation. #EmergenciesActInquiry #CdnNatSec… ImageImage
A word or two about Srgt Chris Kiez who has since deleted/cleaned up his LinkedIn & social media. Even the Reddit post about him has been removed. Thankfully @CyKoore saved a bunch. #EmergenciesActInquiry #OttawaOccupation #OttawaPolice #FluTruxKlan ImageImage
Some screenshots of Sgt Chris Kiez’s posts from @Leenintome2. #EmergenciesActInquiry @OttawaPolice #cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage

Absolutely this. The convoy funding was not only coming from crowd funding sites like #GiveSendGo & #GoFundMe. Thinking that this is the entire story regarding funding of this op, will seriously miss the mark. #EmergenciesActInquiry #cdnmedia #cdnpoli #CdnNatSec
Convoy funding came in via etransfer to a variety of encrypted Protonmail addresses in addition to cash & crypto. It would take an entire team of experts to “follow the money” in a forensic analysis. There is no indication from #OPP that they did this. #EmergenciesActInquiry ImageImageImageImage
This was a tweet of mine from back in Jan/22. It was based on what I’d been seeing. This also applies to #ConvoyFinancing. When there’s no one traceable source of💰, forensic analysis clearly becomes more complex. Now add in laundered💰from foreign adversaries = even more complex Image

Must read 🧵 debunking yet another pile of disinfo bullshit from propaganda media. There was no potential “breakthrough”. Dean French is a grotesque #DougFord operative. Claiming an “accord” amongst malignant actors, is in any way legitimate, is yet another threat to #democracy.
Thank you to @CanadianOut for these screenshots. Anyone claiming there was a potential “breakthrough” right before the #EmergenciesAct was invoked, is amplifying misinformation, or is deliberately & malignly spreading disinformation. The EA was necessary. #CdnNatSec #cdnpoli ImageImage
Speaking of malicious actors & disinformation, everything in this tweet is a lie. Also, #CoupTruxKlan was never about “mandates”. It was an op that foreign adversaries & ideologically motivated domestic extremists used to try & destabilize 🇨🇦’s gov’t. #PierrePoilievreIsLyingToYou Image

When I saw scores of domestic & foreign adversary (including Kremlin linked) troll network accounts pushing #DutchFarmer op, I wondered, like the way #FluTruxKlan used 🇨🇦 as an op launching pad, if Netherlands were being used as a similar launching pad. Now enter this…#CdnNatSec
🧵 from February on this subject. #FluTruxKlan is & has always been an op. It was a destabilization operation that just *happened* to coincide with the lead up to #UkraineInvasion. Not a coincidence. There is a global autocracy project to topple democracy. #cdnNatSec #cdnpoli

This fascist “movement” has hijacked our flag, hijacked #CanadaDay2022, trampled the FREEDOMS of others to enjoy 🇨🇦 Day at the nation’s capital. Hijacked peace & normal life of Ottawa residents & cost businesses. Fuck these Brownshirts & all who enable them. #cdnpoli #ottnews
Many Trump/#January6th supporters, have come as tourists to participate in this op. Right wing circles have exchanged plans to camp at KOA grounds all summer in an attempt to sabotage & disrupt 🇨🇦’s democratically elected gov’t with the full seditious participation of #CPC.

Let’s play connect the dots. I’ll say it again #FreeDumbConvoy is about establishing a RW insurgency. It’s not a coincidence that many #January6 insurrectionists have both participated in & promoted #CoupTruxKlan & the disinformation assault on #PMJT. #CdnNatSec #cdnpoli
Enter players like Tom Marazzo. His connections to radicalized current & former law enforcement & military can be seen most readily through “vets 4 freedom” & its allied group “camp eagle”. #FreeDumbConvoy #CdnNatSec #cdnpoli #OttawaOccupation
Marazzo also ran as a candidate for Derek Sloan’s neo-fascist “Ontario Party”, which enlisted the services of malignant insurrectionist, Roger Stone. #FreeDumbConvoy #CdnNatSec #January6thCommiteeHearings #cdnpoli #OttawaOccupation #CoupTruxKlan

New Post: The Policy and Political Implications of 'Securing Canada's Telecommunications Systems'… #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
Three findings from analyzing the recent “Securing Canada’s Telecommunications Systems” policy statement:

1. the government is unclear when referring to “supply chain breaches” making it challenging to assess the specific risks being addressed
2. The government may be banning Huawei and ZTE principally on the basis of American export restrictions placed on Chinese vendors and, thus, be following the same model as the United Kingdom which was forced to ban Huawei following American actions; and

🧵on Canada's (draft) cyber foreign policy strategy

Last summer, the Chief of @cse_cst stated @CanadaFP had prepared its 'International Cybersecurity Strategy and Cyber Diplomacy Initiative'.

The strategy has yet to be released by the Government of Canada. #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
However, my ATIP of the policy *has* been delivered. You can download the January - May 2021 drafts of "Canada's Foreign Policy for State Behaviour in Cyberspace" at:… #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
In terms of outlining what Canada will do on the world stage this serves to pull together a lot of the different activities that happen in international fora and explain what Canada will do to uphold, facilitate, and advance its interests.

This is about establishing a RW insurgency.
