PR firms prepare 60-80% of global news while 6 media corps control lion's share of global news. [Giants: the Global Power Elite by P Phillips].

Contemplating the sound question "what are they trying to sell me?" is always a legitimate/wise exercise.

If the "ideological protectors of concentrated global capital" wanted you to remain calm - the media, in lockstep, would mirror & amplify this desire. Instead we witness a psychological terror campaign waged against populace - w/ a growing acceptance/demand of fascist measures.
Many of the observations from the 2016 article, "Why We’re Living in the Age of Fear" can be explored in relation to what we bear witness to, at present moment. Our #fear is very easy to #manipulate. "We're #wired to respond to it above everything else."

An execrable presidential pardon during time of #covid19 is intentionally framed & projected on social media too (aside from organic, authentic reactions both supportive of & opposed to this pardon). But what does this look like & so what? #lka #srilanka
Holding a pattern pre-dating @GotabayaR's presidential bid, #Facebook pages setup & curated to venerate him, 6hrs after news of pardon, share posts supportive of pardon. Pro-@PresRajapaksa pages far more muted. Pro-@RajapaksaNamal pages show no content around pardon/Uncle. #lka
These pages alone (there's more) clearly show the dominance of love & like emotions, which is its own story. Positive reactions to colleagues @welikalaa, @bfonseka & others v. critical of pardon on Twitter dwarfed by engagement on FB that's pro-GR/welcome pardon. #lka

1. as Italian politicians consider unprecedented #surveillance measures to stop #COVID spreading, a former head of the Italian #Carabinieri's special unit, #GIS, issues a comment hinting at his despise for open societies and leftists
2. Italy's #Carabinieri had a well-known role in fighting #Communism during the #ColdWar, when Italy had the biggest #CommunistParty in Europe. So this comment by the former head of the Italian #Carabinieri's special unit,#GIS, comes as no surprise
3. Personally,I believe this comment by the former head of the Italian #Carabinieri's special unit,who despise open societies and leftist,is a precious WARNING in these days when Italians are ready to accept unprecedented #surveillaince measures officially intended to stop #COVID

Many are curious why #Singapore and #HongKong did so well with the coronavirus. Here's a thread pulling together what Singapore (and its people) did, that won the respect a citizen who has always been hesitant to excessively praise her own government.
1/ In HK, a strict policy of social distancing made a world of difference. Singapore, pursued a different approach, they allowed work and schools to continue, but ran a fine tooth comb through the community to actively seek out virus patients, high-risk cases and corralled them.
2/ Contract tracing was key: Singapore gave a new meaning to disease detectives: they mobilized cops & a network of thousands of public cameras to retrace the footsteps of patients, hunting down those they were in contact with. #surveillance channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore…

If done well, contact tracing and case isolation is enough to control a #COVID19 in India over 3 months. Delays in identifying cases and incomplete contact tracing results in decreased probability of interrupting the transmission. thelancet.com/journals/langl… 1ofn #Covid19India
Under best-case assumptions, screening will miss more than half of infected people. Most cases missed by screening are undetectable because they have not yet developed symptoms, are unaware they were exposed or have taken paracetamol to mask fever. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P… 2ofn
#India has done exceptionally well in changing the course of what could have been a potentially devastating outbreak. Thanks to @ProfBhargava @ICMRDELHI @icmr_nie @Director_NCDC for the extraordinary measures and leadership in tackling the evolving situation. #Covid19India 3ofn

Today as you know the truth about the 🇬🇧🇷🇺Primary SS and that Steele misled US. Now, it’s high time you knew about DRAGON FISA. 龙赛
1。Let’s start with a brief linguistic class. If he translates the DRAGON FISA from Simplified Chinese into English one gets “赛龙”
2。It EXACTLY matches my Chinese name given to me by a famous Washington DC Sinology professor who gave Obama his Chinese name, too.

Det är svårt att föreställa sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik är spärrad utom de källor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som pågår i Kina angående #Coronavirus är en krigshandling av främmande makt.
Det här viruset är
gjord av människan. Ryssland, Indien, Taiwan vet att viruset innehåller HIV.

Därmed är skiten tillverkad av människan. Det sägs att den slår hårdare mot kinesiska män än mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej från deras egna led.

Fortsättning följer.

News Analysis🔎by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork

While President Trump’s #Acquittal dominated the news this week, there were 3 other significant developments that received little attention. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/wrays-testimon…
1. On the morning of Feb. 5, @FBI Director #Wray made several significant and noteworthy comments and admissions pertaining to #FISAabuse and the ongoing investigation by US Attorney #JohnDurham during testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. c-span.org/video/?468923-…

1/So there was lots of talk at @AACNursing #AACNdoc20 re: #Nursing #PhD pipeline, getting folx esp prelicensure students ‘excited’ about #nursingscience & the #BStoPhD

I totally revamped our #nursingresearch & #innovation course @UMassAmherst last fall to do just that

Thread ⬇️
2/ I told the Asst Dean when I took it on that regardless of the learning objectives for the course I had only 1 GOAL:

That by the end of the semester, these students would be EXCITED!-or at very least, just a little bit CURIOUS-about a career in #nursingscience & #innovation
3/ A note about context: This was a course of ~85 Accel BS students, taught in an urban campus that is geographically ~40mins drive from main @UMassAmherst campus, in the . The classroom assigned had no windows. Class ran 8am-1030am Weds, before more courses. I say this b/c....

The #DOJ determined that 2 of the 4 #FISA applications on @CarterWPage were “not valid,” it was revealed in a declassified order released by Presiding #FISACourt Judge James Boasberg. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/doj-determines…
The #FISACourt wrote that it received notice of “material misstatements and omissions” in the #FISA applications made on @CarterWPage, apparently with respect to the final 2 FISA renewals. fisc.uscourts.gov/sites/default/…
The #FISACourt also noted that the #DOJ had made the assessment that with regard to these 2 applications, “there was insufficient predication to establish probable cause to believe that [@CarterWPage] was acting as an agent of a foreign power.”

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

(1) Several weeks ago two really creepy individuals came into my workplace (one male & one female).

Both were in their late 50s or early 60s. They had a 5 or 6 year old girl in tow with them.

She looked petrified, skinny, malnourished & had huge circles under her fearful eyes.
(2) I alerted my manager that "something was "off" with the couple & that the child looked exhausted & terrified.

They looked like they could be the grand-parents of the little girl, but the woman made a comment to the girl about her "father."
(3) We frequently gather some personal information from the members of the public with whom we interact as part of our business protocol.

After the man left, I googled him and was stunned.

He is highly educated, maintains he was a hacker in the military and also alluded to ....

so for 2+ years Ive been fighting a #FOIA battle in court w/ FBI for surveillance records of my Muslim-American n'hood. After yrs of DOJ obfuscation the Judge gave an unprecedented order for FBI agents to appear & answer questions under oath re the #surveillance of my community!
for years FBI agents have repeatedly questioned, harassed & interrogated folks in my community w/out cause... for the first time ever, WE get to be the ones asking the questions... and this poetic justice is giving me LIFE right now.
Our lawyers say ordering the FBI to testify on the stand is unprecedented in a FOIA case. Chicago fam please come join us at the hearing: WED. January 22 @ 9:30 AM at the Dirksen Federal Building, Courtroom 1441. It's a public hearing & all are welcome, it will be historic!

@nazirafzal thank you for retweeting or I wouldn't have seen this.

Yes I believe @chezLysette. Lysette I think I 'get' what you've gone/are going through.

I used to work in show biz, had some lucky escapes, but changing career to journalism threatened those misusing power.
It needs to be stated that it isn't just the actual 'incident' ie the sexual-physical abuse...it's the horrific fall out through these monsters of vindictive character that block human rights of the victim's loved ones, the 'cover ups' that include isolation, blacklisting
[as your husband suffered], even 'weaponising' NHS medical care [my blood tests are being doctored] not to mention vilification+smear campaigns and in some cases, murder. All because of their shame.

A new draft of the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 #PDPBill was released this week, and introduced in the Lok Sabha yesterday. It builds on the earlier draft prepared by the #SrikrishnaCommittee, but with a few significant changes ⬇️
The most concerning provision in the new #PDPBill is Section 35 on exceptions for the state for national security, law enforcement, sovereignty etc. It drops the legal test of ‘necessity and proportionality’ and legality, taking a huge step back on #SurveillanceReform.
#PDPBill asks some #SocialMedia platforms to give users option to voluntarily verify their identities, posing questions about #FreeSpeech and if there will be greater #Surveillance of accounts who don’t identify themselves. This provision is out of scope for a #DataProtectionLaw.

John Durham—who was tasked with investigating the origins of the investigation of the Trump campaign—issued a rare statement disagreeing with some of the conclusions in the #HorowitzReport.

(Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/durham-disagre…
“Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” #Durham said in a statement.
#Durham’s review recently evolved into a criminal inquiry. The #IGReport by DOJ Inspector General Horowitz, meanwhile, is limited to violations of @FBI and @TheJusticeDept policies.

The @FBI’s #FISA warrant to #Spy on Trump campaign adviser @CarterWPage—a key part of the agency’s investigation of the Trump campaign—has been fraught with irregularities.

By Jeff Carlson @themarketswork (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/an-examination…
Ahead of the release of the #DOJ Inspector General's #FISAReport, we provide an overview of what exactly the known irregularities are.

The initiation of the investigation by @JusticeOIG was originally announced on March 28, 2018.
However, the #IGReport has been repeatedly pushed back and delayed.

IG #Horowitz declared his area of original focus within his initiation announcement:
