#EXPOSE- Harsh Mander @harsh_mander's @CEStudies recvd crores from #French n #Danish Catholics; Requested @HMOIndia to cancel #FCRA registration of CES n @OxfamIndia for misusing funds to fuel #DelhiRiots #Hinduphobia n to kill #AssamTea at the behest of foreign groups! (Cont...) Image
Oxfam's @OxfamIndia CEO Amitabh Behar @AmitabhBehar is treasurer of Mander's NGO Centre for Equity Studies @CEStudies, who was first to lash out at @AmitShah for #FCRABill2020 bcoz his interests were going to be badly hit once #FCRA is amended. Reports says Oxfam funds CES (Cont) ImageImage
As #FCRABill2020 was going to hit @AmitabhBehar from 2 sides i.e. @OxfamIndia n @CEStudies, he expressed anguish over #FCRABill on twitter. Oxfam donor list shows, they r getting millions from suspicious sources from #HongKong (may be #Chinese money??) n #Canada (#ISI??) (Cont.) Image

[HK judge hails pro-#CCP assailant while he stabs activist and throws death threat at me]

1. A pro-#Beijing assailant, Wong, was hailed by #HK judge for his “passion to society” while Wong stabbed democracy ex-lawmaker “Long Hair” Leung Kwok-hung with a pointed metal chisel. Image
2. Wong said if he has a gun, he will use it to shoot Leung. He even publicly threw death threats on court, saying "Joshua Wong & Ted Hui must die”. But without slamming his reckless words, judge praised Wong for being “willing to contribute to society" and released him on bail. Image
3. That’s another case that #Hongkong judges biasedly praise pro-#Beijing assailants. Earlier in April, HK judge hailed another assailant for having "noble sentiments” after he slashed three #HKers with beef knife, causing one's lung collapsed and wounds on their necks and backs. Image

[#Portugese 🇵🇹 & #UK’s #BNO holders 🇬🇧 detained in #China for over 3 weeks]

1. Of the 12 #HKers detained in #China, one is reportedly #Portuguese passport holder while another two are #BNO holders. They are held w/o legal access, sparking growing concern of inhumane treatment. Image
2. It is worrying, under #nationalsecuritylaw, foreign passport holders are deprived of basic rights of access to family-appointed lawyers, which is claimingly promised in #China’s law, esp when 4 lawyers were forced to quit the case due to unusual pressure from #CCP authorities.
3. The twelve could be in China custody for a long time, without any trace. This worse scenario may unveil a new form of Chinese hostage diplomacy under growing tension between #EU & #China

In a few minutes we’ll be live-tweeting today’s National Security Seminar Series event on irregular warfare, with Michael Kofman (@KofmanMichael), Kevin Pollpeter, and special guest Markus Garlauskas (@Mister_G_2), moderated by Bill Rosenau (@WilliamRosenau).
Rosenau: GPC often viewed on two fronts, as day-to-day competition on one hand and high-end competition on the other. Adversaries seek to use irregular warfare (IW) across both fronts
Look at questions of what modern IW looks like? How will adversaries employ IW in competition? And how they'd employ IW in armed conflict/conventional warfare?

1. Plenty of people put in plenty of effort to help these #HongKong-related laws — which you may or may not like — materialize. Since you asked, let me answer. Congress first introduced the #HKHRDA amid the Umbrella Movement, when it received zero attention from @BarackObama.
2. Never from 2014 to 2018 had it even moved out of committee in either chamber. Yes, it passed the Senate last fall when no one denied @marcorubio’s request for unanimous consent, but he took a while to defeat closed-door special interests before he could bring it to the floor.
3. @SpeakerPelosi chose another path, insisting on a roll call so whoever dared to oppose it must do so on the record. This was how the 417-1 House landslide happened. Despite these supermajorities, @realDonaldTrump was ambiguous until the last minute.

THREAD: As the Vatican prepares to renew its ridiculous deal with the Chinese Communist Party regime, which has delivered precisely zero for the Church & only entrenched the regime's repression, I remind you what I've been saying for past few years:

What if I tell u X!’s inner circle hs bn infiltrated?It’s funny hw it got exposed.😄
In his speech(Sep 8) Xi innocuously quoted #HongKong protestor’s PRO-DEMOCRACY slogan, while motivating CCP members.🤦‍♀️
Something similar wld b Pak Army chanting “Bharat mata ki jai”. 😂 Image
2/3 The slogan —“There r no heroes frm the sky,only mortals who came forward”—hs bn repeatedly used by Hong-Kong protestors. Undr normal circumstances X! wld hv avoided quoting pro-democracy protestor’s slogan and that too in an effort to motivate his party members. BLUNDER! 😁 Image
3/3 ostensibly, this is what gave credibility to the theory that X!’s inner circle is compromised by those who r pro-democracy. CCP hs not tkn this “lapsus-linguae”lightly & it’s nw keeping a close vigil on those around X!.Though X! might pretend the blunder ws intentional.😄

Mini-scoop: Spotted a blurred out protest slogan in Yau Ma Tei on Street View last week. 👇… Viewed from another angle, you can see it takes aim at Xi Jinping.

@googlemaps told @hongkongfp's @creery_j that an algorithm error covered it up.
And just spotted this morning - 'Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times' - was also blurred out. The gov't says the slogan is illegal under the national security law.…
Both phrases can be spotted elsewhere on @googlemaps
though.… @studioincendo

The Street View car toured #HongKong at the peak of the demonstrations last year, capturing 'Lennon Wall' message boards, posters, vandalism and floral tributes to protesters...

[From elected lawmaker to exiled freedom fighter, in four years time]

1. Four years ago today, my former colleague @nathanlawkc was elected as the youngest lawmaker in #Hongkong's history. Four years later, he is forced into exile. Image
2. At that time it was like a miracle when the final result was announced. Everybody cheered with joy at the central counting centre, with hopes in our eyes to make some changes in the rigged system that had lost its touch with the people completely. Image
3. Four years ago, no one would believe what had happened in #HK, with #policebrutality, arbitrary prosecution, draconian #NationalSecurityLaw, censorship, disqualification, election cancellation and media meltdown, with 9000+ #HKers arrested and 12 youths now detained in #China.

1) Trump/Pompeo/UK disinfo on Hong Kong National Security Law. 1984 Joint Dec: "The [HKSAR] will be directly under the authority of the Central People's Government of the [PRC &] will enjoy a high degree of autonomy, EXCEPT IN FOREIGN & DEFENCE AFFAIRS."… >
2) US NED-funded protesters trashed Hong Kong, beat, maimed, burn & killed Chinese civilians for a year while the cops struggled to maintain order & killed no-one. Meanwhile, US killed 1,004 Americans last year yet they're attacking China? Perverse.
3) A reminder of the Hong Kong rioters' brutality and slavishness to their former colonial masters. Lisa Nandy, Stephen Kinnock & others ignore these atrocities, instead inventing pretexts to build a war on 1.4b Chinese.

In 3 days, #BoycottMulan. Disney's #Mulan actress supports #HongKong #PoliceBrutality and fought against freedom as a US citizen.

WATCH this new alternative trailer on Hong Kong's #FightForFreedom. Check out this thread for the stories behind the source videos #StandWithHongKong
First, context for why we are calling for #BoycottMulan.

Chinese actress #LiuYifei, a naturalised US citizen who enjoys freedom and democracy, supports #HongKong #PoliceBrutality in a social post.

One of the first videos is the "Thin Yellow Line" by @SCMPNews. It's a citizen-led initiative to form human barriers during 2019 #HongKongProtests to protect young protesters. It won the prestigious 2020 Lorenzo Natali Media Prize:…

[#Germany intimidated by #China one year ago]

1. While #China threatened #CzechRepublic @SenatCZ head @Vystrcil_Milos on his #Taiwan visit, #German realized that same thing happened to them 1y ago when @HeikoMaas was intimidated by #Beijnig after his meeting with me last year. Image
2. During today’s presser, #Wangyi was directly confronted on the issue, together with #Beijing’s crackdown on #Hongkong under #nationalsecuritylaw, #Uyghur reeducation centres in #Xinjiang and #China’s #coronavirus cover-ups.
3. Given such a long list of authoritarian vandalism, it is doubtful why #China can still claim itself as the upholder of multilateralism and peace.

[Religious talks via #GoogleMeet allegedly surveilled by #CCP security agency in #HK]

1. @hkcnews_com reports the HKCCCC church held an online talk on Christianity in #China via #googlemeet on Aug 30, illustrating the history of religious policies in China.
2. Although the internal event was exclusively for members, three unknown users, respectively called “HK branch of China’s national security bureau”, “China’s national security bureau” and “Shenzhengovernment” made requests to join the talk soon after the talk started.
3. When the pastor tried to report the issue to all the participants, he was repeatedly removed by a third-party entity from the chatroom, more than 10 times, which making the talk forced to be suspended.

[First anniversary of #831 #PrinceEdward attack]

1. In the past year, everything worsens in #HK, with a draconian #NationalSecurityLaw imposed, textbooks censored, #hkprotesters forced into exile, and the fate of 12 asylum seekers now left unknown during detention in #China. Image
2. Recently #hkpolice just started to rewrite the history of #PoliceBrutality, turning lies into truths. From tomorrow on, #HKgov will impose a citywide DNA collection, which is considered as a prelude to more sophisticated surveillance regime in #Hongkong. Image
3. However, despite #Beijing's tightening grip, #HKers will continue our fight for democracy and liberty, because it is the only way to bring justice to the city’s next generations.

[New clampdown on #HK press freedom]

1. While Beijing claims #nationalsecuritylaw won't affect #PressFreedom in #Hongkong, #HK Immigration Dept just denied w/o reason the work visa for a @HongKongFP reporter, who has been closely following #hkprotests…
2. As the journalist is a non-American national working in a local news outlet, clearly nothing to do with #US-#China tension, it shows an alarming acceleration of #Beijing’s clampdown on the city’s media freedom, soon after the arrest of the pro-democracy media mogul #Jimmylai.
3. With the flow of information further blocked, #China is now effectively decoupling this international financial hub, as well as the major global media centre in the region, by weaponizing its visa system to stifle critical voices.

[US consulate staff in #HK was assaulted by a Chinese national]

#BREAKING: When #US and #China made some progress on trade, an American working for the US consulate general #Hongkong @USAinHKMacau was assaulted by a Chinese national from behind.…
2. The attack took place near the main entrance of the consulate today. The assailant approached the victim from behind & punched twice in his head, right at the moment when the victim left the consulate. The consulate is located in an area regularly patrolled by #hkpolice.
3. It's the first time that consulate staffs fall victim to physical attack in this international city where personal safety is claimed to be protected by the law.

When Chinese MSS approached Alexander Ma back in the 90s, their real target was CC#1, the unnamed co-conspirator. From the traits given in the complaint, I found that all signs pointed to David Ma, an ex-leader of overseas Chinese democratic movement.…
According to the FBI complaint, CC#1 worked for CIA in 1971-1982 and was posted overseas. In 2001, he met with Chinese MSS officials in #HK, took USD50k and provided classified intel. He also allegedly identified multiple suspected US human assets for the Chinese.
Investigation found David Ma matched CC#1 in age, place of birth, work history with the US gov't, place of residence, criminal record, current health status, and most importantly, his membership of an anti-communist organization.

Morning! 5 with Fitz

1 - Algos will sell (a bit) but don't let that fool you
2 - $AAPL $TLSA > my targets
3 - #Congress > what a joke!
4 - Move over #Nasdaq, #hongkong tech's here
5 - @MotoGP - one of the most amazing finishes you will ever see

In to win!!

Good morning and trust you had a fabulous weekend!

Big open this morning but likely to fade a bit. Don't let that fool you. Algos are programmed to sell a little when they hit new highs.

Stay the course, focus ... "best not rest!"

2 - $AAPL $TSLA and more - my targets on each and why

Super fun @Varneyco this morning on @foxbusiness 😀

There will be ups & downs but the real bet is digitizing your life and information, not selling widgets

[#China new game crackdown on #CallofDuty]

1. After #CallOfDutyBlackOpsColdWar released its teaser, original teaser was swiftly under heavy criticism by Chinese trolls and banned in #China for having a one-second documentary shot of #TiananmenSquareMassacre (1:05) in the teaser.
2. Clearly, this is another game censorship after the recent ban on Animal Crossing, which #Hongkongers take our activism into video games. And also #Blizzard saga last year, where a Hearthstone player was banned for supporting #Hongkong. ImageImage
3. But this time it's even more ridiculous. #Beijing attempts to ban a Cold War game just because the game mentions a Cold War event that the regime wants to remove from its history book. Under #China's tightening ideological grip, game censorship will only intensify. Image
