A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

(1) Several weeks ago two really creepy individuals came into my workplace (one male & one female).

Both were in their late 50s or early 60s. They had a 5 or 6 year old girl in tow with them.

She looked petrified, skinny, malnourished & had huge circles under her fearful eyes.
(2) I alerted my manager that "something was "off" with the couple & that the child looked exhausted & terrified.

They looked like they could be the grand-parents of the little girl, but the woman made a comment to the girl about her "father."
(3) We frequently gather some personal information from the members of the public with whom we interact as part of our business protocol.

After the man left, I googled him and was stunned.

He is highly educated, maintains he was a hacker in the military and also alluded to ....

so for 2+ years Ive been fighting a #FOIA battle in court w/ FBI for surveillance records of my Muslim-American n'hood. After yrs of DOJ obfuscation the Judge gave an unprecedented order for FBI agents to appear & answer questions under oath re the #surveillance of my community!
for years FBI agents have repeatedly questioned, harassed & interrogated folks in my community w/out cause... for the first time ever, WE get to be the ones asking the questions... and this poetic justice is giving me LIFE right now.
Our lawyers say ordering the FBI to testify on the stand is unprecedented in a FOIA case. Chicago fam please come join us at the hearing: WED. January 22 @ 9:30 AM at the Dirksen Federal Building, Courtroom 1441. It's a public hearing & all are welcome, it will be historic!

@nazirafzal thank you for retweeting or I wouldn't have seen this.

Yes I believe @chezLysette. Lysette I think I 'get' what you've gone/are going through.

I used to work in show biz, had some lucky escapes, but changing career to journalism threatened those misusing power.
It needs to be stated that it isn't just the actual 'incident' ie the sexual-physical abuse...it's the horrific fall out through these monsters of vindictive character that block human rights of the victim's loved ones, the 'cover ups' that include isolation, blacklisting
[as your husband suffered], even 'weaponising' NHS medical care [my blood tests are being doctored] not to mention vilification+smear campaigns and in some cases, murder. All because of their shame.

A new draft of the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 #PDPBill was released this week, and introduced in the Lok Sabha yesterday. It builds on the earlier draft prepared by the #SrikrishnaCommittee, but with a few significant changes ⬇️
The most concerning provision in the new #PDPBill is Section 35 on exceptions for the state for national security, law enforcement, sovereignty etc. It drops the legal test of ‘necessity and proportionality’ and legality, taking a huge step back on #SurveillanceReform.
#PDPBill asks some #SocialMedia platforms to give users option to voluntarily verify their identities, posing questions about #FreeSpeech and if there will be greater #Surveillance of accounts who don’t identify themselves. This provision is out of scope for a #DataProtectionLaw.

John Durham—who was tasked with investigating the origins of the investigation of the Trump campaign—issued a rare statement disagreeing with some of the conclusions in the #HorowitzReport.

(Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/durham-disagre…
“Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” #Durham said in a statement.
#Durham’s review recently evolved into a criminal inquiry. The #IGReport by DOJ Inspector General Horowitz, meanwhile, is limited to violations of @FBI and @TheJusticeDept policies.

The @FBI’s #FISA warrant to #Spy on Trump campaign adviser @CarterWPage—a key part of the agency’s investigation of the Trump campaign—has been fraught with irregularities.

By Jeff Carlson @themarketswork (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/an-examination…
Ahead of the release of the #DOJ Inspector General's #FISAReport, we provide an overview of what exactly the known irregularities are.

The initiation of the investigation by @JusticeOIG was originally announced on March 28, 2018.
However, the #IGReport has been repeatedly pushed back and delayed.

IG #Horowitz declared his area of original focus within his initiation announcement:

Trump personally paid the CEO of #Google #SundarPichai a visit to get an assurance from him that “he is totally committed to the U.S. Military”.

1) One week from today, @JoshBurday will represent me in federal district court in a FOIA lawsuit hearing re: Eddington v DoD IG, 17-cv-00128. It’s rare that FOIA cases actually get formal hearings, particularly when one of the defendants is #NSA so some quick background follows.
@JoshBurday 2) At stake is whether #NSA can invoke Section 6 of the NSA Act of 1959 to conceal waste, fraud, abuse or even criminal conduct. Not quite two years ago, the good folks @just_security published my first major piece on this case and our initial findings: justsecurity.org/47632/hayden-n…
@JoshBurday 3) Simply stated, in the four years prior to the 9/11 attacks, a small group of very talented guys at NSA came up with a way to scan digital traffic for signs that a US Person was in comms with terrorists, segregate that traffic for analysis, & discard everything else.

#Pegasus was created by Israeli #cyber weapons dealer #NSOGroup whose parent company Francisco Partners also owns #CrossMatch contracted by #UIDAI for #Aadhaar. This was revealed by us already in 2017. Took almost 2 years for Indian media to catchup. #RIP

Hopefully @Swamy39 alerted the PMO as promised regarding this threat from Israeli #cyber weapons firm #NSOGroup that created spying tool #Pegasus and whose sister concern with links to #CIA was awarded #Aadhaar contract.
Above article was written in 2017. Blackstone made a deal to buy NSO Group but was dropped after heavy protests. So backed by Novalpina Capital stakes were bought back by NSO Group in Feb 2019. The #Aadhaar contract and the spying happened when Francisco Partners owned NSO Group.

“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.

He told me that a lot of the people working on towers were ex-convicts and former military personnel who were adrenaline junkies, a lot of whom also had ....
(2) addiction problems with illicit substances - such as meth.

He also noted that many of his co-workers had "very short fuses" and were prone to violence. He attributed that in part to some of them being convicts.

Starting pay (he said) is $250 per day, for those lacking ....
(3) any experience.

He also maintained that it was prohibited to take selfies on the #cell #towers, and that most of the time they had no idea of what they were installing, and for who.

Co-workers who had taken photos at work-sites were quickly hit with ....

#Comey’s meeting with #DonaldTrump appears to have been part of a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.

(Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/comeys-trump-t…
Comey described the Trump Tower meeting as a defensive briefing intended to inform the President-elect of salacious allegations contained in the so-called #SteeleDossier.

Comey testified he “was briefing [Trump] on it because, because we had been told by the media it was about…
…to launch. We didn’t want to be keeping that from him. He needed to know this was being said. I was very keen not to leave him with an impression that the bureau was trying to do something to him.”

Comey’s testimony to #DOJ IG #Horowitz, however, paints a different picture.

Now that @realDonaldTrump has kicked off a storm stating he will initiate investigation looking to “treasonous activities” by Google & with Google having played a role in 26/11 Mumbai attacks of 2008, will Google to be investigated by Indian Govt as well?

American President @realDonaldTrump has kicked off a storm stating that he will initiate an investigation looking into “treasonous activities” by American multinational technology company Google after allegations from @peterthiel.
Google came under fire last year for its plans to build a censored search engine for China. Employees protested and after internal upheaval and political pressure, the project, called #Dragonfly, was put on hold.

#BananaRepublicUSA #FourthofJuly One of the key things hidden in Mainstream USA when Mainstream Media lies & Alt Media (also mostly owned by same #ZioLuce crime syndicate) pretends and hides is that the DarkSide MIIC has already taken over US--we are still fighting for freedom.1/

(1/12) "Geben Sie uns Ihr Handy!" Mit diesem Satz begann vor Monaten unsere @SZ Recherche zur #OperationHonigbiene

Ein Informant hatte uns eine App zugespielt, die ihm an einer Landgrenze zu #China auf dem Handy installiert wurde.

#thread!
(2/12) Sieht eigentlich ganz harmlos aus. Die Beamten erklärten nicht, was die App kann oder warum sie installiert wird. Ohne Anfangsverdacht muss jeder Reisende seine Geräte aushändigen. Sie bekommen sie später kommentarlos zurück. Deshalb haben wir uns das genauer angeschaut.
(3/12) Wir ist untertrieben. Dabei waren von der @SZ @Remrow @cutterkom @femeb @n_richter @f_obermaier @Lea_Deuber Aber auch Experten von der @ruhrunibochum, dem @OpenTechFund und dem @citizenlab. Dazu die großartigen Kollegen @josephfcox @hilaryosborne @zhonggg @sveckert
