"I want to warn the world about an unprecedented danger that’s threatening the very survival of open societies.

…I’ll focus on #China, where President #XiJinping wants a one-party state to reign supreme."

"Xi is trying to consolidate all the available info about a person into a centralized database to create a 'social credit system'..people will be evaluated by algorithms that will determine whether they pose a threat to the 1-party state. People will then be treated accordingly."
"#China is not the only #authoritarian regime in the world, but it is undoubtedly the #wealthiest, #strongest & most developed in machine learning & #AI.

This makes #Xi the #most #dangerous #opponent of those who believe in the concept of #OpenSociety."

#Meng was charged with conspiracy to defraud banks. Canada’s Crown lawyer told the judge she has incentive to #flee the country. #Dishonesty is a factor in deciding her bail. The Crown lawyer argued that it’s difficult to set #bail high enough to prevent her from fleeing.
#Huawei Used #Skycomm to do #BusinessInIran
Canada’s prosecutor said the case against #Meng is for #fraud in deceiving banks on the relationship between Skycomm and Huawei. The U.S. claims Huawei used its Skycomm unit to do business in Iran, breaching #USsanctions

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

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.

1. #Midterms2018 - The Facts:
- To win the #House the #Democrats need 23 more seats: Not easy
- To win the #Senate they need 2 more and successfully defend existing seats (100 seats in total, 2 for each #state): Not easy
- I detect that the #TrumpTrain (#RedWave) runs full speed!
2. #Midterms2018 - #Trump does a lot right:
- "The Base" was well prepared: You see it at all Trump-rallies
- Trump pushes a few emotive topics (illegal #migration): He knows - "Keep it simple, stupid!" #KISS
- The numbers are on his side: #Economy & #JobNumbers great
3. #Midterms2018 - What the #Democrats do wrong:
- Too many damaged goods: #ElizabethWarren (#Fakecahontas), #HillaryClinton despite all the support, over a billion war-chest & #media on her side LOST! But they keep pushing her!
- No single winning face, to win the votes!

Re: The intellectual underpinnings of #DeMonetisation of 8 Nov 2016. A Tweet thread.
Was there a body of theoretical or logical intellectual economic thought that could have influenced #Indian Prime Minister Modi to spring the #wreckingball of #Demon on the Indian #Economy?
1. Nobel Laureate Kenneth Rogoff wrote a book 'The Curse of Cash' . He argued for the phased withdrawal of the USD 100 bill. His arguments were:
1. Hardly anyone in USA ever used or carried the 100 dollar note. Smaller transactions were paid, when they were paid with cash,
With USD 20s or 10s. Transactions of > 100 USD value were settled by cheque, plastic or bank transfers.
2. 40% of all USD 100s are held outside America.
3. The main sector where the 100 dollar bill was used regularly was the trade in guns, drugs and crime. All over the World.

#Decentralisation will take time.

#Bitcoin is decentralised although still attached to a centralised world.

⚠️ #LightningNetwork is the beta.
If you want to change society you need to change the social paradigm, or offer an incentive greater than money to discourage greed. #bitcoin #LightningNetwork ⚡️

Thread: While the world is shaken by the #murder of #Bulgarian journalist #ViktoriaMarinova, it might be a good time to talk about the country itself. #BG ranks lower in #PressFreedom than both #Hungary or #Poland. The country is the poorest and most corrupt in the #EU. 1/13
Yet, the #EU somehow does not think #Bulgaria is a big issue, due to the fact that PM (and ex-bodyguard of #Soviet General Secretary Todor Zhivkov) @BoykoBorissov "behaves", unlike #Orban and #Kaczyński, who openly challenge the Union. Borissov's party is also member of @EPP 2/13
#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13

I want to talk a minute about how #Brexit is viewed by most of the #Dutch here in the #Netherlands.

1/
The #Dutch are mostly bewildered by #Brexit and why anyone would want to leave.

We do have a small EU critical faction in parliament (PVV+FvD=32 seats out of 150), but 4/5ths of the electorate are either uncaring or moderately to rabidly pro EU.

home.noties.nl/peil/

2/
Our #economy stands to take quite a hit from Brexit. Up to a few percent, even.

economics.rabobank.com/publications/2…

This is seen as a betrayal by most #Dutch, who take the
health of our economy very seriously, especially after supporting Britain's liberal ideas in the #EU

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change

At dinner, I learned more about corruption + racism built into society by our masters. A book we discussed (Zinn) was used as part of this "Left" resource's bibliography. I had to share. [A thread]

@BlackSocialists - thoughts on this resource?

historyisaweapon.com/indextrue.html
It very simply lays out the case that we are all being controlled. It covers hidden history of the United States including their (and, due to the systems created by our masters, our) racism.

El pasado Jul25, Maduro otorgó unos anuncios económicos enmarcados en un “programa de recuperación financiera”. En el presente hilo repasaremos los principales puntos en materia económica y analizaremos las posibles implicaciones de estas medidas. +Info 👉 goo.gl/Uet4mf
El mandatario indicó que ahora se suprimirán cinco ceros de la #moneda, en lugar de tres y que el cono monetario actual también se anulará; ambas medidas ahora quedaron pautadas para el 20 de agosto, aproximadamente veinte días después del anuncio.
Adicionalmente, para esa fecha entrarían en circulación monedas de 50 céntimos y de un (1) #BolivarSoberano, además de billetes con denominación de 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 y 500 bolívares. #money #Venezuela

Let me give you a #TruthSummary for every corporate media story for the last week and for the next 2 weeks bar some new unforseen crisis:
1. There are no such thing as #TrumpTariffs
Art 1 sec 2 cl 3 delegates that power to Congress
Trump Tariffs are a fiction created by illegal legislation and false policies
Media, pundits, & politicians need to shut up about Trump Tariffs & start talkg about #CongressionalTariffs
2. #Kavanaugh will not be the "death of womens rights" no matter what @SenFeinstein says. Kavanaugh will not be king and for goodness sakes, supports #Obamacare!!

Whether we like it or not, the so-called R-APC can't be discounted. They are part of the system and if we see realignments of parties like in 2014, they may win and Nigeria will, once again, be set back decades behind any serious country. I am not happy, just stating the fact.
Again, there is nothing like a single northern bloc, the minorities in N/Nigeria had suffered enough. And this time round, there is growing interest for ppl to get PVC and vote out a govt, they feel does not only marginalized them, but has shown zero interest in their well-being.
Another thing that may play into the hands of the opposition is, military campaigns against #BH is reduced to more than 70% in the raining season and there has been a steady surge in attacks in Dec. Jan. Feb. in the last four yrs. This season, coincides with campaigns elections?

#THREAD: We’ve said this before but for the life of us we can’t figure out why #Trump won’t give up this #TradeWar. The May jobs report was incredible and the #economy is booming. Now he’s threatening to torpedo all this work to get the economy humming because he’s pissed off
The smart political thing for #Trump and his #GOP allies facing re-election to do would be to run out the clock on this booming #economy all throughout the #Midterms2018 season and campaign hard on his anti-regulation, tax cutting economic policy and spike the football
In a survey conducted last fall, the Chicago Council on Public Affairs found that 72% of Americans thought trade is good for the U.S. economy, 78% thought it benefits consumers like themselves, and 57% thought it helps create jobs in the United States
