Gee, how did I know, before reading this article, that this recalled blood pressure drug was made in #China?

The drug is Irbesartan and was recalled because it contained cancer-causing ingredients.

No need for war when they can simply poison people under guise of medicine.
This latest recall was done by #NewJersey pharmaceutical company "Prinston Pharmaceuticals."

The word "Prinston" seemed odd because one would think it should "Princeton," not Prinston.

So I looked up Prinston Pharmaceuticals and here's their website:
In looking into this company, I also found this. SMH.

"Parent organization: Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd."

Graeber/W pitching Fukuyama all embrac. style ag Fukuyama: what's the point?

Both wanna descr THE World Hist as 1 devel 🤪; G/W go on as if we're to forget #sociology & its #capitalism insights incl. Capit means A+SOME! qual diff ways of org society #Marx #Durkheim #Foucault
G/W explain inequality is dealth with regularly throughout hist: "Rather than idling in some primordial innocence, until the genie of inequality was somehow uncorked, our prehistoric ancestors seem to have successfully opened and shut the bottle on a regular basis..." Ok, fine
G/W conclude on the above : "If so, then the real question is not “what are the origins of social inequality?” but, having lived so much of our history moving back and forth between different political systems, “how did we get so stuck?”

Focus Q: "how did we get so stuck?"

Thanks to Jeff Carlson (@themarketswork) & his army of followers, I just gained a bunch myself. Allow me to introduce myself— My name is Seamus (shay-mus - like Sean). I’m an associate director of research (and author) at the Gov’t Accountability Institute
The first Schweizer book I worked on was called Throw Them All Out (2011) which exposed INSIDER TRADING in Congress (paging @SpeakerPelosi) and led to the passage of the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act.

#China mines the rare earth minerals out of Afghanistan and the oil from Iraq. Two countries we spent TRILLIONS of dollars and thousands of lives in militarily and we get NOTHING while they reap the rewards. #WeWereSoldOut #BoiledFrogs #PanamaCanal #MissileTechnologyToo
China is raping Africa and taking over their continent by loaning them money they can’t repay and then forclosing. They mine 90% of all the rare earth minerals in Africa. Gates killed thousands via vaccines there (and here too). #WeWereSoldOut #BoiledFrogs #PanamaCanal
The World Bank loans China money interest free. As they did the US under Obama. Yet, they have now raised interest rates on the US 7 times since Trump took office to slow his explosive economic growth. Why? Because Obama agreed to submitting the US to China while we crumbled.

Michael Ryder and @Bkerrychina kicking off today's @RSAsianAffairs conference on China's Belt and Road Initiative, hosted at KCL, supported by the Wilson Center. Papers will be published as forthcoming issue of Asian Affairs - free to members of the RSAA
What will happen if Belt and Road Initiative leads to significant economic dev - will they lean towards political openness? This would not necessarily be desirable for China. In reality - tendency is NOT for 66 countries involved to move towards democracy with growth @shirleyzeyu
Much talk about possible 'debt trap' for recipient countries. What about risk to China, who will have invested massively via Belt and Road? Autocracies, authoritarian regimes may not uphold their obligations. @shirleyzeyu

"#China is experimenting with the former right now, to see how it can throw its weight around. But it's actually frittering away the other kind of power. It's making it more difficult for other countries to follow China's lead." @benrowswell on @CBCNews #cdnnatsec #Huawei

It‘s remarkable that @RT_Erdogan is preventing peaceful demonstrators from raising awareness about the genocide #China‘s committing against the #Uyghurs of #EastTurkistan. Separately, I’ve seen tweets from #Turkey’s talking heads accusing the [frequently incompetent] @CIA of…
… being behind the demonstrations. As somebody who‘s openly, vocally critical of the #CIA (seriously, check my timeline) & who spends hours everyday trying to help raise awareness of the #Uyghur issue, I can tell you that I’ve seen *NO* US gov’t support for the #Uyghurs AT ALL…
… this is immensely frustrating, b/c this is a #HumanRights crisis & the #CIA would actually be in a position to help if they wanted to do the right thing. But more importantly, this conspiracy theory deflects from something more troubling: #Turkey’s closeness w/ #China

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.

#Huawei‘s rightly being scrutinized for their ties to #China’s intelligence services, but #Hytera‘s totally escaped attention. Both are based in #Shenzhen, #Guangdong Province, but while the former focuses on 4G/5G phones & infrastructure, the latter focuses on radios & bodycams.
… in addition to supplying OTA-encrypted mobile radios for law enforcement, it seems #Hytera’s goods‘ve made their way into the hands of some *not-so-legitimate* customers, too. And then there’s the issue of #Norsat, a #Canada-based satellite comms provider purchased by Hytera…
… whose clients include, per #Norsat’s site, @NATO, the @DeptofDefense, @USMC, @USArmy, @USNavy, @USAirForce, @FoxNews, @CBSNews, @Reuters, @Moto, @Boeing, @GeneralDynamics, & others. Scary, huh?

Might #China’s #Hytera be an even bigger threat than #Huawei & #ZTE… combined?

1. My Predictions For 2019:
- #Macron will find it more & more difficult to hold onto power.
- #Merkel won't last until 2021 & her power will further decrease this year quarter by quarter.
- I expect that the #Brexit-Exit-date will be moved (most likely by 12 months).
2. My Predictions For 2019:
- The issues of mass-#migration (few real #refugees) will continue to haunt #Europe, especially #Germany & continue to put pressure on the GER #Groko-government (#CDU/#CSU & #SPD).
#Predictions2019 #Year2019
3. My Predictions For 2019:
- The trend of right parties gaining more power (2018: #Italy, #Austria, #Brazil) will continue: In #France #LePen (#FN) will benefit from #Macron losing power, in #Germany the #AfD will gain further support in Eastern Germany (tbc).

THREAD: 2018 has seen a diversification of quality reporting and uptick in exposure of the mass repression of #Uighurs and other Turkic Muslim minorities in western #China, by media, academics, and civil society groups across the world.
.@RFA Uyghur Service should be commended for its long-standing and fearless reporting on the situation in #Xinjiang, way before the current human rights crisis began to unfold. See its reporting here:…, esp. the series of interviews w/ victims/families.
Despite government restrictions, major international media outlets have produced several deep-dive investigative pieces, based on satellite imagery, interviews with victims and/or their families, procurement documents on Chinese government websites, and field visits.

.@POTUS What the #DOJ #FBI #JTTF #DHS have done is to take the most "successful" tenets of various torture protocols & have deployed them here in the USA, thru #ThreatFusionCenters.

2) What #DOJ refers to as #TheProgram is in reality not a #CounterIntelligence Program (#COINTELPRO) but rather a counter-terrorism program in which #terrorist tactics r used against the targets; i.e. anyone who has been put on the shitlist by rogue feds/LE. This is #terrorism.

It surprises me that @KSAMOFA, @Kemlu_RI, @MOFAUAE, @MofaQatar_AR, et al., aren’t urging Islamic scholars to steer radicals away from violence & towards nonviolent “information jihad.” The cause of #EastTurkistan’s #Uyghurs is one example where such an approach might do good…
… by “information jihad” I essentially mean “information [holy] warfare.” In the case of Occupied #EastTurkistan, this could inc. information ops to turn public opinion against Communist #China, influence ops to sway key leaders, hacking to dismantle the #GreatFirewall
… censorship circumvention operations (& software development), targeted cyberattacks to disrupt Communist #China’s own information warfare capabilities, data exfiltration to expose the atrocities against Muslims in #EastTurkistan, etc. Good reading:…
