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?

A little thread, which I may come back to, for all those #technophobes who blame rise in #suicide on #socialmedia.

First: legit, what rise?
Second: The actual experts do not agree with you, and your fear-mongering is likely causing more harm than good.
cf. Thomas, K, and Gunnell, D. (2010). Suicide in England and Wales 1861–2007: a time-trends analysis. International Journal of Epidemiology, Volume 39, Issue 6, December 2010, Pages 1464–1475.
So, first the data, from #UK (above) and elsewhere (below).

Clearly if this epidemic was *caused* by a *single* factor it would permeate all societies with social media.

Exclusive report.

Nirav Modi was setup by London based auction houses of Christie & Sotheby involved in auction of our ancient idols & manuscripts stolen by East India Company spies & hoarded in warehouses of British Empire's officers.

gginews.in/nirav-modi-smu…
Nirav Modi’s meteoric rise begins with world famous auction houses of #Christie’s & #Sotheby’s who sold his #Golconda diamonds to unknown buyers. This trick was punctured by cases of inflated invoices, diamond smuggling, market manipulations, money laundering by Indian agencies.
What most people fail to grasp is that this is not just one fraud, its a web of multiple scams – it’s a way of life. To better illustrate this point we mention below briefly about one of their adventures in Zimbabwe in 2012 & encourage our readers to checkout the rest.

1) #QAnon 3020 thru 3025 revisit the @Snowden status. Ppl are still wondering if he's had a white, gray or #BlackHat affiliation.
#ClownNewsNetwork's #POLITICOMag published a piece where #JackDevine, ex-#C_A DirOfOperations says: "..he’s put our whole country in danger."

This bulletin means the world to me. #AshWednesday #HongKong
For a wide range of reasons, I don't tweet a lot about the actual work Ruth and I spend a lot of our day doing here in Hong Kong. But I want to make an exception to talk for a second about Ash Wednesday, Lutheranism, and mission.
SO, tagging in @MZHemingway @revcjackson @HansFiene @esgetology @Heminator @hipsterlutheran @lutheranpastors @LCRLFreedom @Lex_Lutheran @tapanisimojoki @thelcms and I'm SURE I'm forgetting a bunch of my other #Lutheran followers/friends, but alas such is life.

China's positions on the 346 recommendations it received during last year's #ChinaUPR: 284 accepted and 62 not accepted "because they are inconsistent with China’s national conditions, contradictory with Chinese laws, politically biased or untruthful." lib.ohchr.org/HRBodies/UPR/D…
China rejected the US's recommendation to stop interfering in the selection and education of religious leaders such as Tibetan lamas, saying the "reincarnation of Living Buddhas should be consistent with religious rituals, historical conventions and China’s laws and regulations."
#China refused to release and stop persecuting human rights defenders, saying "China is a country under the rule of law, and all its citizens are equal in front of law" and such requests are "an interference in China’s judicial sovereignty." #ChinaUPR

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.

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.

It seems awfully convenient that #MagnitskyAct guy (& probable #EdmondSafra murderer-hirer) @BillBrowder & many of his neocon playthings — like @LindseyGrahamSC — are trying to pin this on Crown Prince #MBS. I smell a shakedown. Bad thing for #HumanRights when only money matters.
… one thing that people don’t realize about #Magnitsky & the #MagnitskyAct is that there’s no more crucial hub of state-sanctioned money laundering than @TheJusticeDept’s @SDNYnews. That’s where Wall St. is (& all the #FININT collection that goes w/ it).
… it’s important to understand #Browder’s connections to the #London-based #HongKong #Shanghai Banking Company — #HSBC — a bank heavily dependent on Communist #China which functions as his private #laudromat. The #Khashoggi case takes the focus off them.

Pues me voy a animar como dije el otro día a hacer un proyecto 365, pero en vez de haciendo fotos, editando fotos mías antiguas, random, basadas en el mood de cada día.
La única limitación que me voy a poner, va a ser el formato 1:1... A ver lo que sale xD
#365photochallenge
I´ll say it also in English :)
I´m gonna try a photography 365 project, but instead of taking photos, processing old random photos of mine...
Only one rule: the square format.
Let´s see what I got, which will be directly affected by the mood of the day...

141. A la hora del montoneo fashionista jashtaguero, resulta que todos son fulanita o fulanito; hasta el perro son. Pero cuando toca revisar el nivel de responsabilidad personal en el crimen de la #PederastiaEclesiástica, no hay quien se apunte con el #TodosSomosCómplices
143. #Bergoglio da consejos de qué hacer con un hijo homosexual; sin embargo este "Padre espiritual" está atiborrado de hijos espirituales homosexuales -curas-, a los que les solapa sus abusos en contra de seminaristas:

Todo está claro en el enlace del tuit 135 de este hilo.

📌 (1) While we all thought the #PodestaGroup was gone turns out their work only wrapped up at the end of 2017, a recent FARA filing shows they continued work with Hong Kong, Japan, India, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Center for Media Studies at Saudi and anti Qatar PR campaign
(2) Here are the lobbyists who found themselves unemployed at the end of 2017 though if history proves anything surely they’ve moved on to another firm.
(3)While “broke” good old Tony Podesta managed to continue his campaign contributions to @dccc @SenFeinstein while the other lobbyists stayed mostly loyal to all things Democrat.

Waiting at Melbourne Airport Holiday Inn before an early morning flight. I realise how much I love hotel rooms. The crisp white sheets. The impersonality. I have been so tired. I need to step aside from my life and its trappings for a while. #cnftweet
Flying to #HongKong. 9 hours in a metal tube kilometres above the earth, which feels counter-intuitive to a nrevous flyer like me. Fortunately I can soothe myself with the monsters and martial arts offered by the in-flight movies. #cnftweet
Arrived in #HongKong. First time here and I don't have a fix on the place. My tired brain serves up cliches. Weather: turkish bath. Hotel room: swinging cats. The goal for tomorrow: get out there, get lost in it, find an original thought. #cnftweet
