“The Chinese miracle is over.”

In a wide-ranging conversation, top radio talk show hosts and senior @EpochTimes staff provided context to an audience of media professionals about some of the most important headlines regarding #China. theepochtimes.com/the-chinese-mi…
John @batchelorshow, a talk show host on WABC in New York, said the #TradeWar has highlighted how “China’s business model is broken.”

US #Tariffs have taught companies they can move their supply chains out of #China, without being subject to unfair trade practices.
@batchelorshow Tom @sullivanradio of #TalkMedia Network said he’s spoken with #Farmers and residents in the heartland states most affected by #China’s retaliatory #Tariffs on US #Agricultural products; they support President Trump tackling the #Chinese regime’s trade policies.

#RobertOBrien, the new National Security Advisor, is virtually unknown within #foreignpolicy circles.

Who is he? @politico has a profile. Brief thread on what it shows <1/8>
politico.com/story/2019/09/…
New NSA #RobertOBrien has none of the experience typically needed for arguably the most important job in #foreignpolicy/#nationalsecurity.

Here's what he was doing during his only prior stint in govt. I was working in NatSec at the time: These aren't significant posts <2/8>
New NSA #RobertOBrien is described as a "hostage negotiator," but it is unclear whether he has ever negotiated the release of a hostage. For example, he had nothing to do with release of citizens held by #NorthKorea (unlike #JimmyCarter, @BillClinton, Bill Richardson etc) <3/8>

News Analysis 🔎 The revelation of the alleged extraction of a #Russian @CIA #Spy has raised a number of questions, including how the #CIA used the information it received—and the quality of that information.

(Thread 👇) By Jeff Carlson @themarketswork theepochtimes.com/russian-spy-re…
Notably, the #Spy appears to have been a key source for allegations of #Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

A closer examination of the spy’s alleged background, however, paints a complicated picture. The spy’s direct supervisor appears to have been mentioned in the…
#SteeleDossier, and it’s possible that information provided by the #Spy may have been included in the dossier.

The primary allegation in the Sept. 9 @CNN article—that the decision to extricate the spy was driven by “concerns that President Donald Trump…cnn.com/2019/09/09/pol…

Shame on DeepState #ForeignPolicy Journal. For Years #Turkey has been hosting 3+ Million #refugees from #Syria (Not like EU concentration camps accepting a few thousands!). They deported a few 1000s without documents & this attack?! - - - foreignpolicy.com/2019/08/08/tur…
An Amazing Example Of Distorted, Spun & Twisted Reporting for “Targeted” Attacks Against #Turkey. #FP should ask #EU & #USA: How many refugees from #Syria Are you willing to host & house in US/EU? And then print the “official response” for all to see!!!!!
Let’s Get The Facts Straight On #Syria Refugees In #Turkey: 1-Millions provided Housing;2- Millions Provided Healthcare; 3- Million+ W/ Work Permits; 4-All Children Provided With Public Education; 5- 10s Of 1000s In #Turkey Universities ...6- With 99% of #Turks Hospitable to Them

.@PeteButtigieg's quotes from the debate, a long thread. Divided into differently lengthened segments for your reading delight. #DemDebates #DemDebate2 #TeamPete
"I'm running for president because our country is running out of time. It is even bigger than the emergency of the Trump presidency. Ask yourself how somebody like Donald Trump ever gets within cheating distance of the Oval Office in the first place. 1/5
"It doesn't happen unless America is already in a crisis -- an economy that's not working for everyone, endless war, climate change. We have lived this in my industrial Midwestern hometown. My generation has lived this as long as we have been alive. 2/5

👇😡@charliearchy, writer of the @HuffPost hit-piece about Niko to smear @TulsiGabbard, a regime-change aficionado who has devoted years of his life to attacking the anti-war left, is a serial liar
Read this article by Ben Norton from @GrayzoneProject:
bennorton.com/charles-davis-…👈🤨
The dishonesty was so clear that #GlennGreenwald publicly spoke out. The Pulitzer Prize-winning journo wrote,“Even for him, what @charliearchy did in manipulating that screen grab to delete the key info of the exchange was shockingly deceitful”👇
#Tulsi2020
Not surprising @TulsiGabbard is being smeared by👇😡👉@charliearchy, who claims to be a journo & frequently contributes to @thedailybeast, owned by IAC, & #ChelseaClinton SITS ON THEIR BOARD OF DIRECTORS, is gifted in the art of fabricating ludicrous lies.

Attacks on @TulsiGabbard for her good judgement is nonsensical
#Syria's President #Assad did not gas his own ppl👇Facts Matter‼️
It’s now revealed that @OPCW suppressed expert engineers report that found the cylinders were staged & not dropped from the air:
#WhyTulsi👇🤨
It’s now revealed that #OPCW suppressed expert engineers report that found the cylinders were likely not dropped from the air.

#Tulsi2020 #TulsiGabbard #NoMoreWars #ForeignPolicy #Syria #Assad
#ChemicalWeapons Attack Were Staged👇😡‼️
The #OPCW confirms that a leaked document on alleged gas cylinders at #Douma in #Syria is genuine. It says it is conducting 'an internal investigation' about its 'unauthorised release.' :

The @TulsiGabbard phenomenon as a diagnostic tool
"The putatively “liberal” legacy Ziomedia hates Tulsi with a passion. Maybe not as much as that legacy Ziomedia hates Trump or Putin, but still – the levels of hostility against her are truly amazing."

Rep. @TulsiGabbard has been pretty consistent on #antiwar, anti-#RegimeChange #ForeignPolicy issues, since before she became a Congresswoman.👇

On @CBCNews to comment on the ongoing spat between #China and #Canada, CIC President @benrowswell explained that there are two ways of looking at power in the international system. There is the power to force, and there is the power to convince. cbc.ca/player/play/14… #cdnpoli
"#China is experimenting with the former right now, to see how it can throw its weight around. But it's actually frittering away the other kind of power. It's making it more difficult for other countries to follow China's lead." @benrowswell on @CBCNews #cdnnatsec #Huawei
"#Canada is symbolic of something in the international system. We're a country that's respected and admired, so when a country decides to be a bully and when they pick on Canada they have really picked on the wrong country.", @benrowswell @CBCNews cbc.ca/player/play/14… #cdnfp

In a nutshell & contrary to public perception @SushmaSwaraj was targeted for her opposition to US sanctions on India for not dumping Iranian oil. But if troll army was unleashed by establishment, what does it say abt India's #ForeignPolicy? If not than who controls Indian trolls?
"We dont make our #foreignpolicy under pressure from other countries. We believe in UN sanctions but not in US sanctions.”
-@SushmaSwaraj defies US sanctions on India for buying Iranian oil. So why were trolls from establishment unleashed against her for protecting our interests?
Maybe @SushmaSwaraj didnt realise she was playing with Fire & hence had to be Nudged. But than why would this nudging come from the establishment's pet troll army. Have they lost control over their own trolls or are they being controlled from somewhere else by someone else?

🗝(1) “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”
For over a year we’ve been bombarded with rhetoric about #Russia #NorthKorea and #Iran yet no one seems to remember Clinton/Gore but we should, it’s important.
(2) #ClintonGore ran in 92’ consciously ignoring foreign policy and there’s no doubt America had war fatigue. Gore’s slogan was “it’s the economy stupid” and when they won despite the #ColdWar having just ended both of them barely even mentioned #Russia
(3) #ClintonGore inherited a political dream of sorts. For the first time #Russia was eager and willing to work with America they were cooperating across the spectrum and agreements with Bush Sr. were in place to reduce nuclear arsenals by 66% Democracy was at its most popular.

India. A nation with rickety legs walking on a treadmill, constantly looking over its shoulder. WEAK and UNSURE. And going NOWHERE.

Sorry about this, @Israel. Perhaps we need some more time to learn how to treat our true friends. Bear with us, please.
@Israel Disagree with you, though, @sushantsareen, on your suggestion that @MEAIndia should at least have abstained. Abstaining is the hallmark of the weak, of cowards:
Maybe @MEAIndia should junk Satow and read a bit of Naipaul.
