BREAKING: Potential hijack underway. ThousandEyes detected intermittent availability issues to Google services from some locations. Traffic to certain Google destinations appears to be routed through an ISP in Russia & black-holed at a China Telecom gateway router.
This is a developing story. Stay tuned for additional analysis. #google#hijack
ThousandEyes BGP Route Visualization shows the 18.104.22.168/19 prefix being leaked into the Internet, which would cause traffic to #Google to be routed via networks in #Russia, #China and #Nigeria
Press Availability With Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Chinese Politburo Member Yang Jiechi, and Chinese State Councilor and Defense Minister General Wei Fenghe state.gov/secretary/rema… (from @StateDept)
#RogerStone’s problem is that he’s a self-promoter given to misleading people about his access. Ask @POTUS. @JulianAssange has already said that #Stone was falsely portraying himself as having inside information, when the public record shows he knew nothing not already public.
… or is there something more at play here w/ notorious fabulist #RogerStone? He’s clearly no mastermind, but is he the one person who could — if coerced & blackmailed into lying by #DirtyCop#Mueller — implicate @POTUS@realDonaldTrump in a fictional scheme to “collude?”
… 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.
USA reality: a country saturated with guns & habituated to quotidian massacre, plagued by age-old racism & bigotry, which have lately been expertly inflamed & incited by the POTUS
There Is Still So Much Evil’: Growing Anti-Semitism Stuns Americans
The violence that took place the Shabbat morning at the Tree of Life congregation in Pittsburgh is the fear of every synagogue, Hillel, day school & Jewish community center in this country. It is the ancient Jewish expectation of persecution—this IS Terrorism
When Rabbi Miller learned of the Squirrel Hill massacre, he ordered the doors of his synagogue locked.
Despite his congregants’ terror that they would be next, they recited the mi sheberach.
They prayed for the healing of others rather than themselves.
Great piece from @WilliamCraddick that I somehow missed. @DisobedientNews “reported in 2017 that [#China’s] 14K triad was working with local affiliates on the American West Coast to push out pro-#Taiwan’ese criminal interests and consolidate control.”
… I‘ve separately ID’d resellers of encrypted communications equipment from #China who are operating in #Mexico. I believe these resellers are likely selling these devices to the cartels. (That’s all I’ll say.) It makes sense since the “product” — #fentanyl — is #MadeInChina…
… so would it surprise anybody if #China was arming #Mexico’s cartels? That assumption should probably be baked-in to our analyses. And let’s not forget that time the very Chinese (but #London-based) #HongKong#Shanghai Banking Corp. — #HSBC — laundered billion$ for the cartels.
#Israel is expected to receive a total of 50 NEW FIGHTER JETS to make two full squadrons by 2024
The money for Air Force Deals is to come from a historic $38b. #US TAXPAYERS #MilitaryAid package to Israel in 2016, which came into force in Feb. of this year.jpost.com/Israel-News/A-…
… 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.
1/ Just watched UN Special Rapporteur @davidakaye present his report on AI and freedom of expression via #UNGA live stream and I’m here to report that in addition to incredible substance it was a real geopolitical thriller. Thread:
@davidakaye 2/ First, the Russian delegate held no punches in reversing the narrative to attack western media as the culprit of disinformation.
@davidakaye 3/ According to Russia, the material we label as “fake news” is actually the “better information” (the interpreter’s words, but telling) that we attempt to hide. Here, you can see the direct alignment between the Russian agenda to destabilize democracy and Trump's media playbook.
Well done, @FoxNews. When there’s an issue with an ally, you were sure to book Rand Paul. He has a predetermined narrative for all things foreign policy - regardless of any development. His is a policy that would weaken America.
Rand Paul says we should never sell arms to any country unless it lessens the risk to the US and that selling arms to #SaudiArabia to use in #Yemen puts the US in greater risk. That is an absurd reading of the Middle East that demonstrates a lack of understanding.
Rand Paul said he’s furious over what Saudi Arabia did to #Khashoggi, claiming we should punish them on humanitarian grounds. But there’s never been a conflict or number of civilian casualties that he would support acting against, including selling weapons. It’s a double standard
Given the fact that @SaudiEmbassyUSA’s in desperate need of goodwill, one would think they’d be smart enough to do something magnanimous, like offer support to the #Uyghurs of #EastTurkistan. Instead, they threaten to strengthen Communist #China by selling oil priced in #yuan. 🙄
… in the grand scheme of things, #Khashoggi was one guy with — at the very least — a lot of very bad friends. #Turkey, meanwhile, has 200+ journalists imprisoned & is doing nothing to help the Turkic #Uyghur people. As Custodians of the Two Holy Mosques, @KSAmofaEN should help.
… despite this glaring fact, Saudi imams will THROW YOU OUT of a Mosque if you dare ask congregants to pray for the #Uyghurs of Occupied #EastTurkistan. The #KSA’s apparent unwillingness to align w/ Western democracies & oppose this unfolding genocide is a major strategic error.
‘String of Pearls’ (SOP) refers to a geopolitical network of Chinese military installations & commercial facilities developed by China in countries falling on the Indian Ocean between the Chinese mainland & Port Sudan in India Ocean Region (IOR). indiatimes.com/news/india/her…
1) Do you want to end up living like they do in China?
Take 5 min to read what happens if ppl there talk negative about the Gov. No journalism. Not even school. All published articles, tv, radio must first be approved by government. Talk bad in China, you WILL be jailed
2) Your family ruined.
Your finances taken away from the ppl of China if they talk bad about their government.
90% of the internet is blocked. No out going emails without being monitored etc etc..
Nothing to worry about though, npt like Google is moving all of their cloud
3) storage to China.
Not like certain China made microchips in your Iphones, androids, lapTops, Ipads etc are opening a secret program in the background , listening 24/7 and recordinf on behalf of #Zuckerburg#Facebook@jack and others.
They thought @HillaryClinton would win
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…
While #JeffSessions’ & #RodRosenstein’s replacements should ideally come from OUTSIDE #DOJ, somebody like #JohnDemers could also be a good choice. Not perfect, but good. As head of the National Security Division, he‘s shown real gumption in addressing #China’s espionage threat.
