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?

The argument for @USCG forward deployment in the #SouthChinaSea is a very strong one. #China’s PLA Navy (PLAN) is growing by leaps & bounds over the @USNavy, which was gutted by the sequester & is stymied by slow procurement/construction. Moreover, @AndrewSErickson‘s laid out,…
… in a meticulous way, the strength of #China’s “Maritime Militia” — a grayzone force that augments the PLAN’s capabilities & applies low-level pressure to reinforce #Beijing’s illegitimate maritime claims. The US #CoastGuard could/should serve as a guarantor of free commerce…
… & freedom of navigation in the #SouthChinaSea. Increased US presence in the #SCS will bolster US diplomatic efforts to reassure allies that we remain fully engaged in the region, committed to supporting the rights of free peoples throughout the #INDOPACIFIC.

The @HongKongFP‘s one of my fav publications, but I must point this out: the overwhelming majority of native inhabitants in the area they call “#Xinjiang, #China” actually call their Homeland “#EastTurkistan” & view it as being under military occupation. Names matter, @TomGrundy.
… the region in Q. is home to not only #Uyghurs, but to #Kazakhs, #Kyrgyz, #Uzbeks, & #Tatars. The term “#Xinjiang” is a *colonial term* that was forcibly imposed on the inhabitants after #China’s #PLA & #CCP invaded/overthrew the #EastTurkistan Republic in 1949…
… it’s important that people understand the history in order to understand what’s going on right now. For nearly 70 years, these people have suffered under #CCP totalitarianism. #Beijing’s claims of “separatism” ring hollow when you realize they’re a foreign, occupying power.

In his rush to let @JaredKushner, @StevenMnuchin1, & @Larry_Kudlow make a deal w/ #China’s #CCP, I fear that @POTUS @realDonaldTrump may not fully understand the existential downside risks that he’s facing. A deal w/ #Beijing will lose #Trump many, many friends & allies…
… and not simply in terms of individuals, but in terms of nation-states. Countries like #Japan, #India, & #Taiwan will suddenly find themselves on their back foot if #Trump kowtows to his friend, Chairman #XiJinping, & I shudder to think how they’ll respond. But beyond…
… sophisticated & capable actors like #Tokyo, #NewDelhi, & #Taipei, @POTUS @realDonaldTrump can expect draw the ire of an even wider circle: persons from #Tibet, #EastTurkistan, #Nepal, & elsewhere will view such a “deal” as hostile to their interests. Moreover, it doesn’t…

Faced w/ an economy on the brink of implosion, #China’s #XiJinping‘ll probably have no choice but to switch to belligerency to rally domestic support. I fear even luminaries like @MikePillsbury misunderstand the situation. #Beijing’s empty trade promises are a stalling tactic…
… to give the #PLA time to prep for a new #ColdWar. The correct COA right now is to aggressively pursue a strongpoint containment strategy vs. #China while giving support to the people of #Tibet, #EastTurkistan, #InnerMongolia, #Manchuria, #HongKong, & #Taiwan, & while seeking…
… détente &, eventually, rapprochement (w/in limits) w/ #Russia (provided that #Moscow addresses certain high-ticket items, like its #INFTreaty violations). This misguided 3-month #TradeWar “truce” is a reprieve #China‘s using to strengthen & ready itself. A strategic mistake.

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.

#Meng was charged with conspiracy to defraud banks. Canada’s Crown lawyer told the judge she has incentive to #flee the country. #Dishonesty is a factor in deciding her bail. The Crown lawyer argued that it’s difficult to set #bail high enough to prevent her from fleeing.
#Huawei Used #Skycomm to do #BusinessInIran
Canada’s prosecutor said the case against #Meng is for #fraud in deceiving banks on the relationship between Skycomm and Huawei. The U.S. claims Huawei used its Skycomm unit to do business in Iran, breaching #USsanctions

This is so sad, but it‘d also be bad if the @StateDept were holding back on taking stronger action against #Beijing to keep hope alive for these select families. @RadioFreeAsia is still using #China’s term for Occupied #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”). Are these hostage families why?
… if it turns out that #RFAsia’s still using the Chinese Communist Party’s term — #Xinjiang — to refer to Occupied #EastTurkistan (which is what its inhabitants call it) in order to gain PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT for #Uyghur-language employees’ families… big scandal, @JohnLansing.
… I‘d encourage @BBGWatch to look into this. Nobody calls #Tibet by its #CCP name, “#Xizang,” so why are @USAGMgov outlets calling Occupied #EastTurkistan by its Chinese name, “Xinjiang?” We add insult to #Uyghurs’ injury by repeatedly & intentionally mis-naming their Homeland.

We’re witnessing a slow-motion #Holocaust in Occupied #EastTurkistan. MILLIONS of Muslims, including the elderly, have been disappeared into Communist #China’s system of #ConcentrationCamps. Meanwhile, #Beijing is murdering CEO’s & even abducted the head of @INTERPOL. Crisis.
… it’s vital that #PacificRim nations coalesce around our shared values: #HumanRights, #PressFreedoms, & #RuleOfLaw. The time to push back on Communist #China is NOW. #America 🇺🇸, #Japan 🇯🇵, #Australia 🇦🇺, #India 🇮🇳, #Taiwan 🇹🇼, & others… join together to stop these atrocities!
… the free world — I hope you still cherish it — has never faced a more daunting & urgent threat that the one posed by Communist #China’s totalitarian regime. Nazi Germany’s population was 90 million. Soviet Russia’s was 293 million. Communist China? 1.386 BILLION. Must act NOW.

I assess that it’s unlikely Communist #China will exterminate the #Uyghurs of Occupied #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”) using Nazi-style methods like gassing. #Beijing is smart enough that they’ll try to do it w/ a modicum of plausible deniability. Therefore, it’s vital we monitor…
… the condition of these #ConcentrationCamps in Occupied #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”) for (1) cumulative average radiation exposure (from the daily body scans #Uyghurs are subjected to) & (2) prison diseases like #tuberculosis (which are fatal if untreated). We should also…
… consider the possibility that these diseases, when coupled w/ medical neglect, are an intentional strategy that Communist #China is using or will use to slowly eradicate the #Uyghur people of Occupied #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”) housed in these #ConcentrationCamps. #GENOCIDE

… the last time missing @INTERPOL Pres. #MengHongwei was in the news (aside from a September blip abt a spat b/t #Serbia/#Kosovo re: #INTERPOL membership) was in July. He met w/ #Russia'n Investigative Cmte Chairman #Bastrykin & was criticized by Prosecutor General #YuriChaika.
… another official who was detained by Communist #China recently is #NurBekri. He was head of the #PRC's National Energy Administration & was a #Uyghur. He went missing about a week after meeting w/ #Putin. Is it possible that #Beijing fears #Russia is recruiting its people?
