BREAKING: Potential hijack underway. ThousandEyes detected intermittent availability issues to Google services from some locations. Traffic to certain Google destinations appears to be routed through an ISP in Russia & black-holed at a China Telecom gateway router.
This is a developing story. Stay tuned for additional analysis. #google #hijack
ThousandEyes BGP Route Visualization shows the 216.58.192.0/19 prefix being leaked into the Internet, which would cause traffic to #Google to be routed via networks in #Russia, #China and #Nigeria

1/ The President of the United States is systematically dismantling all the institutions we built after WWII to maintain the world order we created.

#Abdication
2/ #NATO, the UN, the WTO, the IMF, World Bank, and our trade agreements are mechanisms for us to have a say in what other countries do. They are tools of our power but they come at a cost.

We cannot just do whatever we want without consulting others and in some cases it costs $
3/ Our modern #empire is dependent upon the US Dollar and US military power. First let's talk about the $USD.

By FAR our most powerful tool, it is based on our political and economic stability. While even DJT can't destroy our economy, he is straining our political stability.

News conference by @POTUS underway.
“Last night the Republican Party defied history,” begins @POTUS.
Without his #MAGA rallies there might have been a blue wave, asserts @POTUS.

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

First things first, it is important to point out, again, that the news of both HSBC and UBS closing down what are essentially satellite offices in #Nigeria is really a non-issue.
HSBC for example, is cutting its branches in up to a quarter of the 67 countries it operates in last I checked, so again, that is not the issue.
What should terrify us is that in the last year, foreign direct investment into our country has plunged by a factor of 30%.

That is significant, and if #Nigeria were serious, there should be a cabinet level meeting, but no, meat-heads will be masturbating about "corruption".

#RogerStone’s problem is that he’s a self-promoter given to misleading people about his access. Ask @POTUS. @JulianAssange has already said that #Stone was falsely portraying himself as having inside information, when the public record shows he knew nothing not already public.
… is this why the @StateDept — still aching from @ChelseaXY having humiliated @HillaryClinton — is leaning on #Ecuador to force #China-style restrictions on @JulianAssange? He’s the ONLY person who could reveal the truth about the #RussiaGate myth, dooming #Mueller’s #WitchHunt.
… or is there something more at play here w/ notorious fabulist #RogerStone? He’s clearly no mastermind, but is he the one person who could — if coerced & blackmailed into lying by #DirtyCop #Mueller — implicate @POTUS @realDonaldTrump in a fictional scheme to “collude?”

This is so sad, but it‘d also be bad if the @StateDept were holding back on taking stronger action against #Beijing to keep hope alive for these select families. @RadioFreeAsia is still using #China’s term for Occupied #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”). Are these hostage families why?
… if it turns out that #RFAsia’s still using the Chinese Communist Party’s term — #Xinjiang — to refer to Occupied #EastTurkistan (which is what its inhabitants call it) in order to gain PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT for #Uyghur-language employees’ families… big scandal, @JohnLansing.
… I‘d encourage @BBGWatch to look into this. Nobody calls #Tibet by its #CCP name, “#Xizang,” so why are @USAGMgov outlets calling Occupied #EastTurkistan by its Chinese name, “Xinjiang?” We add insult to #Uyghurs’ injury by repeatedly & intentionally mis-naming their Homeland.

USA reality: a country saturated with guns & habituated to quotidian massacre, plagued by age-old racism & bigotry, which have lately been expertly inflamed & incited by the POTUS

There Is Still So Much Evil’: Growing Anti-Semitism Stuns Americans
🚫HateSpeakKills🚫

The violence that took place the Shabbat morning at the Tree of Life congregation in Pittsburgh is the fear of every synagogue, Hillel, day school & Jewish community center in this country. It is the ancient Jewish expectation of persecution—this IS Terrorism
🚫HateSpeakKills3🚫

When Rabbi Miller learned of the Squirrel Hill massacre, he ordered the doors of his synagogue locked.

Despite his congregants’ terror that they would be next, they recited the mi sheberach.

They prayed for the healing of others rather than themselves.

Great piece from @WilliamCraddick that I somehow missed. @DisobedientNews “reported in 2017 that [#China’s] 14K triad was working with local affiliates on the American West Coast to push out pro-#Taiwan’ese criminal interests and consolidate control.”
… I‘ve separately ID’d resellers of encrypted communications equipment from #China who are operating in #Mexico. I believe these resellers are likely selling these devices to the cartels. (That’s all I’ll say.) It makes sense since the “product” — #fentanyl — is #MadeInChina
… so would it surprise anybody if #China was arming #Mexico’s cartels? That assumption should probably be baked-in to our analyses. And let’s not forget that time the very Chinese (but #London-based) #HongKong #Shanghai Banking Corp. — #HSBC — laundered billion$ for the cartels.

We’re witnessing a slow-motion #Holocaust in Occupied #EastTurkistan. MILLIONS of Muslims, including the elderly, have been disappeared into Communist #China’s system of #ConcentrationCamps. Meanwhile, #Beijing is murdering CEO’s & even abducted the head of @INTERPOL. Crisis.
… it’s vital that #PacificRim nations coalesce around our shared values: #HumanRights, #PressFreedoms, & #RuleOfLaw. The time to push back on Communist #China is NOW. #America 🇺🇸, #Japan 🇯🇵, #Australia 🇦🇺, #India 🇮🇳, #Taiwan 🇹🇼, & others… join together to stop these atrocities!
… the free world — I hope you still cherish it — has never faced a more daunting & urgent threat that the one posed by Communist #China’s totalitarian regime. Nazi Germany’s population was 90 million. Soviet Russia’s was 293 million. Communist China? 1.386 BILLION. Must act NOW.

1/ Just watched UN Special Rapporteur @davidakaye present his report on AI and freedom of expression via #UNGA live stream and I’m here to report that in addition to incredible substance it was a real geopolitical thriller. Thread:
@davidakaye 2/ First, the Russian delegate held no punches in reversing the narrative to attack western media as the culprit of disinformation.
@davidakaye 3/ According to Russia, the material we label as “fake news” is actually the “better information” (the interpreter’s words, but telling) that we attempt to hide. Here, you can see the direct alignment between the Russian agenda to destabilize democracy and Trump's media playbook.

Well done, @FoxNews. When there’s an issue with an ally, you were sure to book Rand Paul. He has a predetermined narrative for all things foreign policy - regardless of any development. His is a policy that would weaken America.
Rand Paul says we should never sell arms to any country unless it lessens the risk to the US and that selling arms to #SaudiArabia to use in #Yemen puts the US in greater risk. That is an absurd reading of the Middle East that demonstrates a lack of understanding.
Rand Paul said he’s furious over what Saudi Arabia did to #Khashoggi, claiming we should punish them on humanitarian grounds. But there’s never been a conflict or number of civilian casualties that he would support acting against, including selling weapons. It’s a double standard

‼️Mapping Erik Prince’s Private Mercenary Empire

📌Prince is the modern architect of private military firms

📌His latest venture is in training security personnel in China

📌But he's been all over the world, outsourcing militaries to cheap labor markets
albawaba.com/news/mapping-e…
Erik Prince, the brain behind the infamous private military firm Blackwater, is now in China training security forces.
#ErikPrince #China
albawaba.com/news/mapping-e…
Prince, a former Navy SEAL, helped found Blackwater in 1997. The company rose to prominence after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

It seems awfully convenient that #MagnitskyAct guy (& probable #EdmondSafra murderer-hirer) @BillBrowder & many of his neocon playthings — like @LindseyGrahamSC — are trying to pin this on Crown Prince #MBS. I smell a shakedown. Bad thing for #HumanRights when only money matters.
… one thing that people don’t realize about #Magnitsky & the #MagnitskyAct is that there’s no more crucial hub of state-sanctioned money laundering than @TheJusticeDept’s @SDNYnews. That’s where Wall St. is (& all the #FININT collection that goes w/ it).
… it’s important to understand #Browder’s connections to the #London-based #HongKong #Shanghai Banking Company — #HSBC — a bank heavily dependent on Communist #China which functions as his private #laudromat. The #Khashoggi case takes the focus off them.

Given the fact that @SaudiEmbassyUSA’s in desperate need of goodwill, one would think they’d be smart enough to do something magnanimous, like offer support to the #Uyghurs of #EastTurkistan. Instead, they threaten to strengthen Communist #China by selling oil priced in #yuan. 🙄
… in the grand scheme of things, #Khashoggi was one guy with — at the very least — a lot of very bad friends. #Turkey, meanwhile, has 200+ journalists imprisoned & is doing nothing to help the Turkic #Uyghur people. As Custodians of the Two Holy Mosques, @KSAmofaEN should help.
… despite this glaring fact, Saudi imams will THROW YOU OUT of a Mosque if you dare ask congregants to pray for the #Uyghurs of Occupied #EastTurkistan. The #KSA’s apparent unwillingness to align w/ Western democracies & oppose this unfolding genocide is a major strategic error.

Do you want to end up living like they do in China?
Take 5 min to read what happens if ppl there talk negative about the Gov. No journalism. Not even school. All published articles, tv, radio must first be approved by government. Talk bad in China, you WILL be jailed
2)
Your family ruined.
Your finances taken away from the ppl of China if they talk bad about their government.
90% of the internet is blocked. No out going emails without being monitored etc etc..
Nothing to worry about though, npt like Google is moving all of their cloud

Not like certain China made microchips in your Iphones, androids, lapTops, Ipads etc are opening a secret program in the background , listening 24/7 and recordinf on behalf of #Zuckerburg #Facebook @jack and others.

I assess that it’s unlikely Communist #China will exterminate the #Uyghurs of Occupied #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”) using Nazi-style methods like gassing. #Beijing is smart enough that they’ll try to do it w/ a modicum of plausible deniability. Therefore, it’s vital we monitor…
… the condition of these #ConcentrationCamps in Occupied #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”) for (1) cumulative average radiation exposure (from the daily body scans #Uyghurs are subjected to) & (2) prison diseases like #tuberculosis (which are fatal if untreated). We should also…
… consider the possibility that these diseases, when coupled w/ medical neglect, are an intentional strategy that Communist #China is using or will use to slowly eradicate the #Uyghur people of Occupied #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”) housed in these #ConcentrationCamps. #GENOCIDE

While #JeffSessions’ & #RodRosenstein’s replacements should ideally come from OUTSIDE #DOJ, somebody like #JohnDemers could also be a good choice. Not perfect, but good. As head of the National Security Division, he‘s shown real gumption in addressing #China’s espionage threat.
… my opinion of @FBI GC #DanaBoente has cooled, as he‘s apparently okay w/ this #RussiaGate myth, is tight w/ #DirtyCop #Mueller, & as USA for #EDVA, likely empaneled the @WikiLeaks Grand Jury on the basis of fabricated evidence & perjurious testimony extracted under duress.
… AAG-NS #JohnDemers clerked for #Scalia & has, for the most, made strategic decisions. That said, his apparent failure to agitate for charging officials (like @HillaryClinton, @Comey & @JohnBrennan) — seemingly deferring to #Huber & #Horowitz — is concerning. Could be stronger.
