Thread: #Chinese government demanded that Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey be fired - “We said there’s no chance that’s happening. There’s no chance we’ll even discipline him.” foxbusiness.com/sports/nba-ada…
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Thursday that the league rejected demands from Chinese government officials to fire Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey over his Oct. 4 tweet in support of pro-democracy protestors in Hong Kong.
“We made clear that we were being asked to fire him, by the Chinese government, by the parties we dealt with, government and business,” Silver said during an appearance at the Time 100 Health Summit in New York City.

Thread: #Chinese Nuclear Submarine May Have Been Involved In Incident In #SouthChinaSea - A Chinese Type 094 (Jin-class) nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) surfaced next to a #Vietnamese fishing vessel near the Paracel Islands forbes.com/sites/hisutton…
The Jin Class is the newest missile submarine in the Chinese arsenal. Six have been built and are already the backbone of China’s at-sea nuclear deterrent. The submarines are based near Sanya on the island of Hainan, about 190 miles northwest of the Paracel Islands.
Surfacing next to another country's vessel is unusual and suggests that something has gone wrong. Something serious enough to warrant sacrificing its main asset: stealth. This is not the type of submarine you would expect to be used to send a message.

"Under a secretive deal signed last month with a provincial government in the [#SolomonIslands], a Beijing-based company with close ties to the CCP has secured exclusive development rights for the entire island [of #Tulagi] & its surroundings."

"The island of #Tulagi served as a South Pacific headquarters for Britain then Japan, and during #WorldWarII, its natural deepwater harbor made it a military gem. Now, #China is moving in with plans to effectively take control."

nytimes.com/2019/10/16/wor…
"Even compared to previous #Chinese development deals in nearby countries — including a wharf in #Vanuatu, whose terms were not publicly released for years — the #Tulagi agreement is remarkable for both its scope and lack of public input."

Thread: Xi Jinping Defeated in #Nepal - The #Chinese President reacted angrily after Nepal refused to sign an extradition treaty aimed at deporting #Tibetan refugees back to #China - Nepal is home to 20,000 Tibetan refugees, 9,000 in Kathmandu alone bitterwinter.org/xi-jinping-def…
The status of Tibetans is uncertain, as Nepal has never signed the Geneva Convention and Protocol on refugees. In the past, some refugees have been stopped at the border, and under Chinese pressure the police has prevented anti-CCP demonstrations to be organized in Kathmandu.
Nepal's attitude is not enough for the CCP. They want the Tibetan refugees deported to China, starting with those who tell to international media the story of the atrocities they suffered in Tibet. Chinese media & pro-CCP Nepalese media started to claim they are “false refugees.”

The Chams are an Austronesian people indigenous to what was previously the kingdom of Champa, now in modern day south Vietnam. They currently follow 3 religions, Hinduism, Sunni Shafi'i Islam & a third religion mixing the other two together. They were conquered by Vietnam.
Champa along with Vietnam was under the rule of Han dynasty China after China expanded & conquered territories in south China & Indochina. The official Khu Liên (Qū Lián) led Chams to revolt against China in 192 & established the independent Cham kingdom of Lâm Ấp (Linyi).
The Chams were then Indianized by their neighbor Funan. China & #Champa then fought each other several times over the next 800 years as they shared a border. China invaded Champa in the Sui dynasty in 605 & sacked the Cham capital before withdrawing after disease struck the army.

.@Apple removed an app that provides real-time updates about #HongKongPolice and #HongKongProtesters movements from its App Store on Oct. 10, the latest international brand that has caved following pressure from the #Chinese regime 👎 theepochtimes.com/apple-pulls-ho…
The dynamic, crowd-sourced app HKmap.live has become popular for helping people to navigate through the tear gas-filled streets in Hong Kong, a former British colony where pro-democracy protests have erupted since June against Beijing’s creeping interference.
The emojis and spontaneous updates proved handy for users to track conditions such as train closures and potential clashes. Apple said in a statement that the app has posed “serious harm” to law enforcement and local residents.

“The issue ... is that part of their industrial policy, part of the way they try to accomplish that, is state-sponsored theft or creating an environment that rewards or turns a blind eye to it,” U.S. Deputy Assistant Attorney General Adam Hickey told CNBC.
As Trump puts pressure on Beijing to end unfair business practices, the Justice Department has a warning for companies: Bolster your defenses. “More cases are being opened on trade secret theft” & more of them point to China, said US Deputy Assistant Attorney General Adam Hickey.

"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.

The #UAE diplomacy with #NewDelhi is a step forward in helping end #India-#Iran strategic partnership. If successful, this will help #Pakistan interests that suffered due to Indian-Iranian partnership in #Afghanistan & #Balochistan. /1

@AQpk
The #UAE is likely hoping to permanently end #India's reliance on #Iran oil imports, and shift its oil contracts to Arab Gulf suppliers. #AbuDhabi is likely also interested in seeing India end its role in #Chabahar port, which has also created problems for #Pakistan and #China.
While helping #Pakistan economically & diplomatically (quiet diplomacy to bring the #US & #Islamabad closer), the #UAE has walked a fine balance to court #India in the hope of encouraging an #Indian shift away from #Iran.
