So I hear you want to rise to the top ranks of #China’s Communist Party and try to take over the world w/ #fraud?

Well, I question your life choices, but let me teach you how you can do that.

Let’s start with some relevant assumptions and scene-setting to save some time…
… Assumption 1) #BigData is “the new oil” for #ML/#AI applications.

2) #China’s debt-laden #SOE’s and under-capitalized banks have a record of creative financing schemes, esp. when it comes to what used to be British #HongKong. Where better to defraud foreign investors?
… 3) State-managed economies, esp. Communist ones, control information and therefore lack proper “market signals.” They poorly allocate capital on the supply side because endogenous organic demand signals are suppressed. Consequently, Communist economies aren't self-sustaining.

The Irish gov has released its Electronic Communications Security Measures (ECSMs), effectively a reaction to risks in #5G technologies and networks. Here's a summary of what it does say ....
Ireland’s Risk Assessment concluded that nation-state actors pose the greatest risk to networks. It looks like technologies that are not granted exceptions must be ripped and replaced by 2027. Is this a ban on high-risk vendors, if the bar is very high??
There are serious risks affecting #5G networks, in particular risks arising from poorly written or malicious code, supply chain risks, particularly those arising from high risk suppliers and the risk of third country or State interference.

[1/15] #China’s military technology is rapidly advancing, and American companies are fueling the fire.

Last month, @Intel and @Sequoia were linked to a company contracted to provide China’s military with #AI.

That's just the tip of the iceberg.

[2/15] It’s no secret that China uses U.S. tech to create their weapons.

More than 90% of Chinese #semiconductors rely on U.S. and allied technologies and it is believed that U.S. tech contributed to China’s test of a nuclear-capable #hypersonic weapon.…
[3/15] To that end, the National Counterintelligence & Security Center (@NCSCgov) warned that China was engaged in “comprehensive” efforts to buy, copy, and steal critical and emerging tech from the United States, including semiconductors and #AIML tools.…

Might have to discuss the subject of "hostage diplomacy" now, given the surprisingly wide range of understandings of this topic on #Chinese social media and Twitter after #MengWanzhou's release.
First of all, it's worth noting that while many in the West see the “two Michaels” as victims of "hostage diplomacy," for the vast majority of Chinese people, Meng Wanzhou is the one who has been being unfairly held hostage by the US, and there are several reasons for that:
1.For most #Chinese, the US’ long-arm jurisdiction & sanctions against Iran have never been fair, legal, or acceptable. In other words, when many westerners deeply trust the US judicial system, it's seen by many Chinese as a political rule that has to be followed but...

#Huawei CFO #WanzhouMeng has admitted to Misleading Global Financial Institution

Meng made multiple material misrepresentations to a senior executive of a financial institution regarding Huawei’s business operations in #Iran
… in an effort to preserve Huawei’s banking relationship with the financial institution
Huawei owned #Skycom Tech. Co. a Hong Kong company that primarily operated in Iran. As of February 2007, Skycom was wholly owned by a subsidiary of #Huawei
Between 2010 and 2014, Huawei controlled Skycom’s business operations in Iran, and Skycom was owned by an entity controlled by Huawei. All significant Skycom business decisions were made by Huawei.

Expect this news will make most of you uncomfortable. Plz let me begin with a declaration that the #ClimateCrisis is real & requires immediate action

But you've also heard me address conflict of interest in #CDNmedia & this #thread has serious legal implications
2/24 🧵#CDNpoli #CDNmedia

It's outrageously serendipitous that #Huawei's Meng Wanzhou signed a plea deal today, the #2Michaels are coming home from China, & that Grimes is reporting marital troubles with Elon Musk

Could've never imagined those topics would intertwine like this
3/24 🧵#CDNpoli

When it comes to conflicts of interest in #CDNmedia my criticisms are not partisan

For #J_school legal reasons it has always been imperative for journos to decline reporting on people or matters that involve them & to ethically disclose when that isn't avoidable

Canadian Robert Shellenberg has lost an appeal & faces execution in #China for trying to smuggle drugs to #Australia. The Canadian Ambassador said it was "no coincidence" his verdict was announced while the extradition hearing of #China's Meng Wanzhou is on in #Canada.
Shellenberg first received a 15-year prison sentence after being charge with drug smuggling. However - following the detention of #Huawei's Meng Wanzhou in #Canada on a #US extradition request - the Canadian was "re-tried" and then instead given the death penalty.
The Shellenberg case - along with the cases involving Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig - have been described as hostage diplomacy on the part of #Beijing. China's foreign affairs spokespeople have themselves linked the Spavor & Kovrig cases to #Huawei's Meng Wanzhou.

In 2019, the @FCC took decisive action to secure the communications supply chain, barring companies from using FCC subsidies to buy equipment from entities deemed national security threats. Pleased 5th Cir. today rejected #Huawei's appeal of our decision.…
Today's decision by the 5th Cir. closes part of the circle that began in 2018, when I promised @SenTomCotton and others that "I intend[ed] to take proactive steps to help ensure the integrity of the communications supply chain in the United States."…
There's more to do. We successfully pushed Congress to establish a program for removing already-installed equipment from companies like Huawei and ZTE—an ongoing process. But now the court's made clear: "Assessing security risks to telecom networks falls in the FCC’s wheelhouse."

1/ Bombshell reporting by Dutch newspaper @volkskrant on @Huawei in the Netherlands.

In 2010, KPN commissioned a risk assessment on Huawei. The findings were so damning that KPN never made them public for fear that the company wouldn't survive.
2/ The report states that Huawei:

➡️ Had unfettered access to KPN's network
➡️ Could eavesdrop on all conversations (including those of the PM)
➡️ Knew which numbers were monitored by police and intelligence services
➡️ Accessed the network core from China

There's more...
3/ Huawei also had full access to the personal info of KPN subsidiary Telfort's subscribers. Another investigation found that Huawei installed several ways to obtain this info and did so regularly.

Huawei refused to close down these exfil pathways after being confronted by KPN.

#US chip makers try to reverse Trump’s moves to block sales to #Huawei

Companies are seeking more time to make their cases before an interagency panel and hoping for a policy shift…
2) Hours after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi alleged that the government has “ceded” Indian territory to the Chinese & raised questions over the agreement, the Ministry of Defence issued a strongly-worded statement.
3) The ministry made clarifications in the statement: “the assertion that Indian territory is up to Finger 4 is categorically false. The territory of India is as depicted by the map of India including over 43,000 sq km currently under illegal occupation of China since 1962.”

Great report by @satariano on a fake network that @Graphika_NYC (and others) found in December.

Twitter accounts with GAN faces, boosting Huawei, boosted by Huawei execs, and attacking Belgium's 5G policies.

Not enough evidence to prove who ran them.…
We found this network when it was boosted by Spamouflage, a pro-China operation.

Independently, @mvanhulten of @TI_EU and @ArbiterOfTweets of @Knack found it with different methods.

It's not a friendly environment for fake campaigns, folks.…
This was the first account we found.

"Alexandre, PhD", apparently a CEO.

But no surname, no indication of what he's a CEO of, and a GAN-generated profile pic.

🚨🚨Clinton Foundation --> Solar winds connection

🧵Thread 👇👇👇

Clinton money runs very deep. They’ve been involved with elections since 2014.... How was the foundation allowed to fund "projects" dealing with elections even while Killary was running as president?
~1~The Clinton foundation is the source of many well funded activities that allows them to control everything. Barrick Gold Corp is relevant to #Solarwinds & the Delian Project to Dominion. I'll cover Barrick once I get to Newmont through UBS. We will focus on the Delian Project.

#Germany #China #5G #Huawei

In contrast to countries like Great Britain, Germany does not exclude the Chinese with 5G across the board. But now the cabinet has agreed on stricter rules for foreign network equipment suppliers.
The federal government has been arguing for two years, now there is a draft law, the cabinet is supposed to get it underway on Wednesday. In contrast to countries like Great Britain and Sweden, Germany does not exclude Chinese companies across the board.
But Berlin, too, subjects the use of companies to strict rules. This is a problem for the German network operators: they have made themselves heavily dependent on #Huawei over the past few years. In the radio network of Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and Telefónica,
