"So everytime we do have a peaceful parade or march, it's just that every time there’s police coming out to provoke us. If they don’t come out, they don’t suddenly raise their flag, everytime it will be fine, it will be peaceful."

"There are mysterious suicides everyday and there have been at least 114 mysterious suicides since the beginning of the time revolution in June, and we can see police brutality on the frontline on a daily basis."

#China retaliates by arresting #Americans - Two Americans are being detained in China in apparent retaliation for the arrest of a Chinese official in New York on visa fraud charges - Bad call, #USA is not #Canada, Trump is not Trudeau washingtontimes.com/news/2019/oct/…
“We are aware of the detention of 2 U.S. citizens in Jiangsu, China, and the charges being brought against them by the provincial government,” said a State Department official. “We take seriously our responsibility to assist U.S. citizens abroad and are monitoring the situation.”
A person familiar with the case said the timing of the arrests coincided with the arrest of a Chinese official in New York on visa fraud charges. The detentions in Jiangsu appear to be a Cold War-style hostage-taking, the source said.

#Beijing’s show of military might is a wake-up call for #Australia - Good descriptions of the new weapon systems 👍Excellent article👍 aspistrategist.org.au/beijings-show-…
The WZ-8 would act as high-speed eyes for long-range A2/AD systems such as the DF-17 or the DF-26 anti-ship missile. Pic of the WZ-8 👇👇👇
The WZ-8 could cover a large maritime region quickly, identify a target, and share that information with ‘shooters’ such as PLA Rocket Force ballistic missile units. Its high altitude, high speed and stealthy design would make it virtually impossible to intercept.

“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.

"The Epoch Times seeks to restore honest journalism, the purpose of a free press."

Wall Street Journal @WSJ publishes op-ed by @EpochTimes publisher Stephen Gregory in response to misleading @NBCNews and @MSNBC attacks. (Thread 👇) wsj.com/articles/nbc-n…
@WSJ @NBCNews @MSNBC The #EpochTimes is a nonpartisan, independent media company that publishes a daily newspaper and website. Our motto is “Truth and Tradition.”

Last week #NBCNews and its sister network #MSNBC launched a series of irresponsible and misleading attacks on us.
The network led with the claim that we have spent “more than any organization outside of the Trump campaign itself” in the past 6 months on “pro-Trump advertisements.”

NBC refers to ads promoting our print subscriptions—typically short, lively videos featuring recent articles.

America’s greatest information weapon may be its meme warriors. I think we need more memes critical of #China’s Communist Party. It’s only right that we mock, ridicule, castigate, lampoon, pillory, & parody this awful, IP-stealing, trade-cheating, #HumanRights violating-regime.
… I asked for memes, & the great people of #HongKong & their allies (follow em!) delivered. Here’s the first one I wanted to share (technically a cartoon, but a good one).

Hong Kong is the spark that could ignite the brushfires of freedom in #China. 🔥

… the next #ChinaMeme is sweet as 🍯.

#XiJinping — the Butcher of #Beijing — is famously insecure about being a doppelgänger for Winnie the Pooh. #China’s #GreatFirewall bans all images of the Pooh bear as subversive (so get creative, meme warriors!).

Seeing the success of The Epoch Times as America’s fastest-growing newspaper, @NBCNews has published a hit-piece that is riddled with inaccuracies, blatant errors, and misrepresentations.

(Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/nbc-news-repea…
@NBCNews NBC News mischaracterizes our subscription campaigns for our print newspaper. We provided @NBCNews with a statement back in June to clarify this, but they chose to ignore it—against well established journalistic practices. theepochtimes.com/our-response-t…
While The Epoch Times has been at the forefront of covering the actions taken by officials in the Obama admin targeting the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, @NBCNews is refusing to look at verifiable evidence and simply dismisses this reporting as a “conspiracy theory.”

Ikke-vold aksjoner virker, det vil røske opp i inntørket samvittighet; Undertrykkeren ser at du er villig til å ofre selv ditt eget liv for din gruppes #frihet, #likeverd og #verdighet, og gradvis vil han se din sak som sin sak. Han vil bli din partner i kampen.
Et eksempel på ikkevold #aksjoner.

#Frigjøring av arresterte #jøder i Berlin.

Jødenes 'ariske' hustruer #demonstrerte utenfor #Gestapos hovedkvarter i sentrum av Berlin, og etter dager av intens #ikkevold, ble jødiske mennene #frigitt, midt under #krigen, midt i #Nazi-Tyskland.
Et annet eksempel er #Gandhi's ikkevold #aksjoner mot Englands #kolonialisme som fortsatte etter #krigen; Gandhis #ikkevold aksjoner gjorde det lettere for #England til å #kapitulere med #verdighet fordi de ikke var blitt 'slått'.

Faktisk falt #koloniene som #dominobrikker.

Secret Deal for #Chinese Naval Outpost in #Cambodia Raises #US Fears of Beijing’s Ambitions - Use of Ream naval base would help China’s military project power across a broad swath of Southeast Asia wsj.com/articles/secre…
China has signed a secret agreement allowing its armed forces to use a Cambodian navy base near here, as Beijing works to boost its ability to project military power around the globe, according to U.S. and allied officials familiar with the matter.
The pact—signed this spring but not disclosed by either side—gives China exclusive rights to part of a Cambodian naval installation on the Gulf of Thailand, not far from a large airport now being constructed by a Chinese company.

#HonKong Thread: Hong Kong protesters abandoned Facebook for other platforms - "Facebook is not a useful tool for the movement except for those celebrities and parties, on which they make announcements and deliver statements." euronews.com/2019/07/12/hon…
The 2014 Hong Kong generation was dependent on Facebook. Now, "most young people don't use Facebook anymore & turned to Snapchat or Instagram." At the core of the issue is Facebook's algorithm, which prioritizes posts triggering an intense debate in the comments.
"In 2014, Facebook amplified the disagreements between the various "school of thoughts". EconReporter wrote. "In 2014, the movement had no experience and leaders did not know how to handle it and promote democratic decisions within it," Han Mei said.

A Trump delete/retweet with no grammatical changes - but code is still easy.
Note is posted on 6/13/2019 -"not ready today"
He deletes at 13th minute = 13th day = today
He retweets it 21st minute = something big to happen in #Iran within 8 days! #Qanon
New Trump tweet delete changing "i" to "u"
1st tweet = 12th min = Day of interview which has been used in countless hit pieces since. Changing "i" to "u" of "Ridiculous" = Asking allies to turn this argument from himself to them. trumptwitterarchive.com/archive #Qanon #GreatAwakening
Trump misspelling - Lockheed -> Lockhead - context of Coatesville- Pennsylvania = connected with 9/11- and Lockheed = planes perhaps some info is about to get "unlocked"? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coatesvil… #Qanon #GreatAwakening #Itshappening

Playing with #DigitalFire:

1/7: In martial arts, one of the best moves is to take an attacker's weapon and turn it back on them. In 2016, that's just what #Beijing did – in #cyberspace:
nyti.ms/2Ylm3E3
2/7: After #American operatives used a particular bit of code to attack #Chinese computer systems, Chinese hackers took it, repurposed it, and used it to attack a bunch of US allies.
3/7: The Chinese simply seem to have spotted a #US #cyberintrusion and snatched the code, often developed at huge expense to #American taxpayers.

With #US sanctions on #Iran, this is the time for #Pakistan to squeeze #Tehran on #IRGC's destabilization inside Pak+alliance with #India in #Afghanistan+#Chabahar. #Islamabad should leverage IRGC's use of Pakistani markets/ports for smuggling and evading
#US sanctions. #Pakistan should not look away this time as it did during #Iran-#Iraq war in 80s when #IRGC used Pak facilities to dodge sanctions. Let's remember how the Pasdaran, who are #India's allies in Iran, bluntly threw Dr AQ Khan under the bus in 2003 creating the biggest
crisis for #Pakistan's nuclear program, and how #Iran joined #India diplomats in openly lobbying #China to end #CPEC part of #BRI bcz "#Balochistan is not safe" while sponsoring terrorism to ensure #Beijing changes its mind. This is the moment to isolate

Why‘s @KimDotcom so pro-#China? Why‘s @Snowden not critical of #Beijing? There seems to be a red thread tying both to #HongKong. Of that clique, only @WikiLeaks#Assange has been vocally anti-#CCP. Now, after #INAPapers show @Lenin was bribed by China’s #Sinohidro, he’s gagged.
… another oddity at the nexus of the #Ecuador/#UK/#Assange standoff: #Manafort was lobbying on behalf of #China’s efforts to “invest” in Ecuador’s grid & “trade” Assange. Now we find out from #INAPapers that Presidenté #Moreno was bribed by #Sinohydro. 🤔
… is it possible that #China’s man, #Manafort, was working a multipartite deal — b/t #China/#Ecuador/#UK/#USA — to trade #WikiLeaks#Assange, possibly working bilaterally so as to keep each of the counterparties in the dark about the “full deal?”

“Win-win-win-win” cooperation?

So, #SundarPichai sells off a bunch #Google stock for BIG $$ last week just prior to his congressional testimony, offer sketchy answers RE: project w/#China, then a fire break out in their #Beijing office.

Nothing to see here.

Considering all the moving parts here...it's clear that more is afoot than the players would like us to know about. The CEO of GOOG was selling off boatloads of stock just days before testifying before Congress - that's undeniable.

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
