It is very important in this period of humanity to take a serious look at what is happening in the world friends.

Watch this video first in its entirety & reflect upon current situations critically.

#Menticide is here & with it, a new attempt to establish a "#TechnoTotalitarian" rule over the lives of American citizens.

The final variant of #Coronavirus could very well be the manifestation of a #NewWorldOrder under #totalitarian rule.
That may sound absurd, but what is very concerning is that many talking heads in the media & even public figures are now making very carefully worded emotional appeals to logic to further induce a totalitarian #masspsychosis.

Today is #NationalWhistleblowerDay. Please support #nationalsecurity #whistleblowers who have made some of the most important disclosures in the history of the United States, and have suffered tremendous consequences.
By definition whistleblowers reveal information in the public interest. They expose government misconduct, such as information about unconstitutional mass surveillance, torture, the secret drone war, foreign election interference, discrimination, civil and human rights abuses.

Good news everybody!

To enrich your summer break John (@J_B_C16) and I wrote about #semiconductors and #China!

We analyzed the global semi value chain across three strategic dimensions: industry competitiveness, #NationalSecurity and #resilience

cc @snv_berlin @merics_eu /1 Image
First, we looked at the generic production steps - consisting of 3 process steps and 5 inputs.

For each we analyzed barriers to entry, market concentration, competitiveness of Chinese industry, Chinese policies, etc. Image
Based on that we then assessed each production step across 3 'strategic dimensions'.

Idea: What motivates a government to invest in/support its semi ecosystem or cooperate with allies?

Can we systematize that / come up with a framework for 'national interest'? Yes, we can! Image

The digital age is already challenging traditional concepts of ‘national borders’- my thoughts on the solution via @ASPI_org

Sovereignty means reinserting state power and the democratic responsibility of government to build people’s opinions and rights into dealings with transnational corporations that operate online.
Re: Facebook VS Aus Gov: Public interest remains at the mercy of a foreign-based, privately held tech conglomerate. Plus, small—i.e. regional—news outlets won’t qualify for the code & get nothing. And Facebook retains its right to block Australian news content again in future.

The public sector needs to curb its reliance on the private sector to invest in and deliver digital projects and resources we cannot do without from an economic and national security perspective. via @ASPI_org #nationalsecurity #sovereignty #digitalage
@ASPI_org Sovereignty also means ensuring investment in tech capabilities that are critical to national security with urgency and accountability.
@ASPI_org Now that we’re talking about being inside the historical ‘10 years’ warning time’ for potential regional conflict, was it not extremely risky to wait for a private company with the vision, and enough risk appetite and capital, to build such critical infrastructure?

The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 🧐

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality
I'm a #football fan & I see a footy angle in almost everything I read! 🧐

Not sure if these connections stand up, but here's what I saw;

- #Bolivia former President #EvoMorales was ousted in 2019. Evo a #SimonBolivar anti-imperialist styled leader

Unity is first & foremost responsibility

Have you EVER seen a responsible #racist?

Americans view the unfolding events as internal affairs

They forgot - the US gov aggressively promoted globalization & insisted on being the leader of the "free world"


The world agreed & was rewarded with a shock

B4 #Trump, many "flaws" of the system were not obvious

#TraitorTrump exposed them all

- the system of C&B is dangerously unreliable
- human life is worthless
- unprecedented #corruption
- #DoubleStandards

#NoJusticeNoPeace ➡️

#Biden should've restored #RuleOfLaw b4 talking about unity - he put the cart b4 the horse

#JoeBiden's unity
- turned #racism into a political stance
- let #GOPTraitors off the hook
- reduced #RuleOfLaw to nothing
- "inspired" #CorruptGOP & it's base

1/ Let's play compare and contrast:

(Left) The police attacked the victims in lock step with a violent #Nazi.

(Right) The police trumped up as many charges as possible under the direction of far right groups.

Just wait until we get to compare the #media response. #cdnPoli Image

On this #IWD21, I'm thrilled to share a piece that @kwilfore and I wrote @BrookingsInst on why gendered disinformation is a #nationalsecurity problem, and outlining the 3 steps the #BidenHarris administration must take to get ready to tackle it:, namely:
1. Convene as soon as possible the National Task Force on Online Harassment and Abuse proposed by President Joe Biden on the campaign trail - as new regulatory approaches are devised on #BigTech, it's key for this taskforce to lead some of these conversations!
2. Ensure gendered disinformation is a a top priority the newly instituted White House Gender Policy Council co- led by @jenkleindc and Julissa Reynoso

I mock #HunterBiden, b/c I feel upset & threatened by the actions of this man, for placing our country's (relative) freedom at stake, when he accepted bribes from #CCP, due to his addiction...but...
...when I read this, that #HunterBiden was critically injured, early in life, in a car accident...some of his behavior is not surprising...he probably had a head injury, which could have led to brain damage, drug addiction & poor judgement...…

#TPPInsiders/#Congress can starve people in our country, by shutting down businesses & not sending out adequate compensation...but if you question this, you are a "#Trump supporter" & "insurrectionist"...
#TPPInsiders can kill your #sovereignty, by having a foreign political party bribe your President to pass an unnecessary "trade" deal (#CPTPP)--but if you question this, you are called "#xeonophobic," "#protectionist" and/or possibly "#racist"...
#TPPInsiders can place #WarCriminals in #Biden's administration...but if you question this, you are called "sexist"..."homophobic"..."right-wing"...a "white supremacist"...

Our #NationalSecurity must realize that the top brass is corrupt. When this happens, there is only the #Press--the real Press--that can sometimes raise-awareness. #Biden made deals on YOUR SELL OUR #USA SOVEREIGNTY!

#Wikileaks is a place for #whistleblowers.

#NationalSecurity must realize that the safety of the #USA has been compromised by security agencies' laziness & corruption!

#Wikileaks published the information that helped link #Biden, #China & a #FakeTradeDeal that kills our #USA SOVEREIGNTY! #NoCPTPP

Our #NationalSecurity must realize that our country cannot survive if we shift production to offshore sweatshops, hand our law-making processes to transnational, CEOs in #ISDS tribunals &/or censor our #FreedomofSpeech & #FreedomOfThePress.

Our independent film team documented the harsh prosecution of #RealityWinner in Augusta, GA, along with journalists @kgosztola & @tkbarnes. Reality and her family faced an overwhelming adversary, the US Government that wanted to make an example out of then 25-year-old Reality.

UFOs 2020: This thread is intended as a catch-up for people whose attention is newly drawn to recent published revelations regarding interest, by some organs of the U.S. government, in certain UFO events. This thread touches on some significant developments of the past 3 years.

2. As a Latina, Intelligence Officer & really just someone with common sense who was in the #WhiteHouse, watching @realDonaldTrump’s complete mismanagement & failure on this #Venezuela nation building attempt, first hand, has been upsetting from day one.
3.@realDonaldTrump doesn't actually care about #Libertad & he cares even less about @jguaido —I know Trump championed him as a leader, then called him "weak", a "joke" & proceeded to turn his back on the entire situation. The people of #Venezuela & its neighbors are on their own.
