As #TikTok's CEO is being grilled by the US House Committee on Energy and Commerce, it's time to cut through the noise on what the issues are with TikTok and why the USG, through #CFIUS, seems trending toward a force divestiture.
First, I cannot disclose anything about this transaction that I learned while working on CFIUS matters in the USG. Everything on this thread is based on information that is publicly available through news reporting.
The issues with Tiktok is two-fold – data security and the ability to manipulate the algorithm for propaganda. I wrote an explainer about this in the Washington Post back in 2020:…

I'm teaching my regular "Preparing and Delivering a Briefing" professional skills course tonight at @SAISHopkins.

Any illustrative briefing horror stories or cautionary tales from #natsec / #miltwitter to share with my students? Replies and DMs are open.
@SAISHopkins I've accumulated quite a battery of (anonymized) stories featuring equipment failures, PowerPoint chart disasters, flubbed facts, and tough audiences -- both from my observations and from friends.
@SAISHopkins They're helpful to illustrate pitfalls but also to remind us that delivering information in a concise, analytical fashion -- whether for interagency policy deliberations, a commander's conference, a pitch meeting, or an earnings call -- is a lifelong skill.

Siloed development of AI by nation-states as National Security threat mitigation as well as the weaponizing of AI to infiltrate, and affect policy & population sentiment in adversary nations is a significant malignant threat to peace & exponentially increases the risk of conflict
AI algos harness volumes of macro & micro-data to influence decisions affecting people in a range of scenarios, from benign movie recommendations to less benign black-box creditworthiness tests, to malignant use by Alphabet Agencies for regime change…
Artificial intelligence extends the reach of national security threats that can target individuals and whole societies with precision, speed, and scale

As 2022 comes to a close, here’s a brief #cdnpoli year in review. In January/22 we saw the launch of a destabilization op (that just *happened* to coincide with the lead up to Putin’s attack on #Ukraine). #FreeDumbConvoy #FluTruxKlan
#FluTruxKlan #FreeDumbConvoy was pushed hard by multiple malign players & boosted by inauthentic activity, including by foreign threat actors. #Cdnpoli #CdnpoliYearInReview #goodbye2022
Feb/22 #NevrePoilievre officially launched his “prime minister” bid using #FluTruxKlan op, even though we’d just had an election months earlier & O’Toole was still #CPCldr.

I have more questions raised than answered but for the time a quick summary:
- Reservists (volunteer + conscript) are the new TDF (sort of)
- Conscripted soldiers to work w/ civil defense systems on criss response, disaster relief, security control, combat engineering...
A layered approach to what appears to be the result of two-year discussion among #natsec and military circles.

Day 22 of testimony at the Emergencies inquiry starts today. Here’s where we are at after 21 days/ analysis by me and @aballinga
If you need a primer on how Canadian parliamentary democracy works (not the Canada Unity version), listen to the live webcast of the inquiry.
Otherwise, I'll wait until there's testimony in about 45 minutes from now.
Spoke too soon.
Inquiry counsel actually just said two full cabinet mtgs discussed the Emergencies Act on Feb 3, and Feb. 15. (Feb 3 is news to me. But we await details.)

Those responsible for setting up a Smart Grid, for approving the use of Electronic Weapons on people (without telling them so) in #PublicSafety #CommunityHealth #CommunityPolicing #WeaponsTesting et al Covers are All #TopCrims, who've sanctioned, ok'd, approved, allowed TORTURE.
Those engaged in #TechSurveillance #CIA #MK projects, #DARPA Neuro Disruption projects, #NSA & Univ Mindreading projects, all know perfectly well they're doing things they shouldn't be: They're harming people, remotely, with conducted energy, RNM, REA, etc. #Amoral and #Inhumane.

Just FYI to the Bogus #BehaviouralHealthOpsters out there who like to project that everything is a "health crisis" from which people are "recovering" and need "healing" and "therapy" from: #PsychiatryCrime #SpyStateCrime #Spychiatry cannot be hidden ANYMORE & is #BeingExposed!👹
7:31 pm: Direct response to this tweet from the Opsters right next door calling out (they do this Only when Spychiatry is exposed at my pen, on social media, online on my Bentley logs, or in an article & in real time) to their conveniently named dog. Luna! Luna! Luna! Luna! Luna!
And since it appears #Spychiatry is such an elemental subject provoking immediate attention, may they all be warned: I am now at the #Spychiatry Desk, and the endless stream of subject flowing in is sure going to keep me busy!

‘FBI executes search warrant at Trump's Mar-a-Lago in document investigation’

“former President confirmed that FBI agents were at Mar-a-Lago and said ‘they even broke into my safe.’ He was at Trump Tower in New York when the search warrant…”

“… Following the National Archives' recovering of White House records from Mar-a-Lago in recent months, the FBI on Monday had to verify that nothing was left behind.”

“… In early June, a handful of investigators made a rare visit to the property seeking more information about potentially classified material from Trump's time in the White House that had been taken to Florida.”

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

Digging into Rosemont Seneca & its ties to US #biolabs in Ukraine I now see why the "Biden crime family" & "Where's #HunterBiden" memes exists

This 2018 article covers the #PrivateEquity firm created by Joe Biden son & Kerry's step-son & its 🇨🇳CCP links… Image
e.g. Biden & John Kerry's sons' PE fund partnered w/ a subsidiary of #AVIC, a CCP Aviation Defense Conglomerate & bought a US 'defense tech' co, while Biden was VP ‼️ All while AVIC was building #J31✈️w/ hacked #F35 IP, per Snowden's revelations🤯

Hunter Biden's PE firm Rosemont Seneca led the $30M Series A round for #metabiota, a firm that also raised $ in '17 from In-Q-Tel aka the #CIA's VC arm.

Metabiota has ties to the '16 #Ebola crisis, #EcoHealth (cv19) & they're a subcontractor for Black & Veatch (#biolabs ops) Image

What Does Vladimir Putin Have on Joe Biden? Joe and Hunter Biden’s seedy involvements in Ukraine may have given the Russian leader all the ‘kompromat’ he needs to keep America at bay! 🔍 Tablet Magazine #Cybersecurity #Forensics #NatSec…
Vladimir Putin didn’t need the green light that Joe Biden gave Russian forces during his marathon press conference last Thursday for a “minor incursion” into Ukraine. The Russian president already knew the U.S. commander in chief couldn’t stop him even if he wanted to.
You don’t need a secret dossier authored by a British ex-spy for hire like Christopher Steele to understand the possible weird real-world mirror version of Russiagate. This time, it’s basically all out in the open—or at least it was …

Incoming monster thread: y'day my @Carleton colleague @leahwest_nsl argued the Govt “must believe the protests rise to the level of a national emergency” to invoke the #EmergenciesAct for the 1st time since its creation by a @CPC_HQ Govt in 1988 1/X
While #natsec law is outside my wheelhouse of expertise, my work regularly bumps up against such issues & has forever focused on Qs about coms, society & democracy. As such, I want to weigh in with a few thoughts of my own & hope that I have something worthwhile to say. 2/x
TLDR: While I disagree w/ her provisional conclusion, I do agree that we must be very vigilant that this precedent setting use of the #EmergenciesAct remains ltd in time, targeted in terms of geography, subject to Parliamentary review & snuggled tightly within the 3/

1/16🧵 A #thread on how badly #CDNmedia is crippled by substituting journalism with public relations amid concentrated, consolidated, & political ownership

This isn't just about revenue, though the Canada Revenue Agency (#CRA) will serve as this week's textbook example (con't)
2/16🧵 #CDNmedia #CDNpoli #CRA

Yesterday you might've seen this vanilla story about Revenue Canada taking its site offline for some miscellaneous 'global #security vulnerability'

It was a whole lot of 'everything's fine' & 'nothing to see here' #InfoSec
3/16🧵 #CDNpoli #CRA

That story was written by Canadian Press, that now funds reporters via Facebook corporate sponsorship in an official & ongoing #CDNmedia alliance

It was published without a byline at 11pm on Saturday night (when few would see it) & syndicated by Global News

Hey there, friends! Happy Thursday morning!

Today is #InternationalPodcastDay and if you're looking for a new podcast on #NatSec, leadership, and history, we suggest this one.

We've got 74 episodes to comb through.

[1 OF 9]
[2 OF 9]

We've had some cool guests, such as entrepreneur Gary Vee [], who spoke about empathetic leadership, motivation, and the value of failing.
[3 OF 9]

We had @PaulRieckhoff for Episode 56. As you'd expect, he had MUCH to say about the end of the war in Afghanistan, the 20th anniversary of 9/11, and the need for veterans to reach out for help:

To friends, a cautious warning; to nefarious actors, you're put on notice & the radar of #NatSec

During the writ my bank account was hacked repeatedly, likely to gain insight RE who might be paying me

On #Elxn44 day, $3,000 was stolen
2/17 🧵#InfoSec #CDNmedia

Soon after the #Elxn44 writ dropped, multiple IP addresses began #hacking my bank account

According to bank security (that happens to be the HQ for all #CDNpoli banking #NatSec security), every attack arose from @Rogers/@RogersHelps accounts
3/17 🧵#CDNpoli #InfoSec #CDNmedia

And by no means was it even typical hacking. It's the type that put #NatSec on full alert because it compromised bank security as well as my own security & overrode all the safeguards that banks have in place

Please let me explain...
