I'm also trying 2 make plain that what even Mattis was trying 2 push that "both sides do that" is GOP trying 2 survive but if we buy that BS out of repetition we're doomed. DNC did NOT side w/Russia, or try 73+ times 2 repeal Obamacare, or give #TaxScamForRich, or protect 45
aka #TraitorInChief come Hell or high water, did NOT insert judges on USC whose main qualification was being right-wing zealots, did NOT condone conspiracy theories pushed by WH on all media leading to hatred & violence, did NOT block Muller Investigation & the appoint Barr to
complete the process, did NOT keep in power an unfit, deranged man who betrayed allies fm @NATO to #Kurds to SoKo/Japan, EU, Ukraine; did NOT use quid pro quo to blackmail a weak ally 2 get dirt & help Russia in the process, did NOT say they were going to block ANYTHING Obama put

1/8 #Disinformation & #Misinformation can come in many forms.

One of them is #cherrypicking, where only certain pieces of information are chosen to sell your argument.

Sometimes this presentation is done purely for sensationalism.

Take this Dan Scavino post Trump re-tweeted:
2/8 Seizing upon this shocking potential revelation, numerous news outlets are broadcasting it as if it were a lock, a definite thing, but if you look more closely at the articles themselves, it turns out to be anything but.
3/8 The numbers come from Moody's Analytics, a poll alla re swift to note has been accurate for 40 years... except in 2016.

That's a very recent & sizable blunder, & though they insist taking into account surprise turnout patterns resolves the issue, it leaves room for doubt.

#BigTech surveillance gone wild...

Will 🇨🇳 eventually control your #social #score/social credit?

Google whistleblower and former software developer Zachary Voorhees re: Google’s relationship with Communist China in

DeepMind

AKA the

“AI Manhattan Project.”
“When people think of surveillance they usually think of country surveillance, this is planetary surveillance of all information that is available on the surface web and also any sources that it can get in the deep web..."

"So think of the Library of Alexandria of all available websites that you can search for and all that data gets fused together and a decision-making process gets formed because of that. This is essentially what the Google DeepMind project is all about.”

A note on #impeachment #Ukraine

Below you will find what the Constitution of the United States says about the impeachment process.

Something to remember as we wade into this sacrosanct constitutional process: Congress has unchecked power to impeach. The House of Representatives
has 'sole' power of impeachment. Sole = belonging only to. Nixon v. Fitzgerald, a landmark case that established executive privilege & presidential immunity also ruled that impeachment & the press were inherent powers of the public to check presidential abuse of power.
The Constitution does not give the judicial or executive branch any jurisdiction to limit or obstruct the impeachment process. In fact, doing so would contravene the express mandate of the Constitution and all following judicial & legislative actions in this matter. So what's

Tralasciando il periodo buio dei dittatori, credo non sia mai esistito un mascalzone simile. Arrogante, presuntuoso, altezzoso con tendenze tiranniche, pronto a infliggere sanzioni e dazi e altrettanto ipocrita e ignobile nel chiedere favori a Stati (v. China) ai quali li impone.
Arrivando alla spudoratezza di argomentare le sue richieste di "aiuto" attraverso una sorta di ricatto, dopo aver imposto il bando delle #TradeWars sui prodotti cinesi, del tipo 'Deal Or No Deal'. Ma se collaboreranno: 'Will Be No Small Deal With China'.

La corsa QUANTISTICA s'interseca con la geopolitica della TECNOLOGIA. Nessuna tecnologia è neutra. È sempre posseduta da qualcuno, con diversi gradi di accesso degli altri, con diverse possibilità d'influenza e pertanto con implicazioni sui rapporti di potere. #SilkRoad #China
La corsa alle CAPACITÀ QUANTISTICHE, in questo senso, s'interseca con processi che segnano la nostra epoca: gl'investimenti cinesi sui conglomerati della DISRUPTION TECNOLOGICA, sull'ecosistema dell’INNOVAZIONE e sulle INFRASTRUTTURE SPAZIALI; la reazione degli USA? #TradeWars
Nel 2016 la Cina ha lanciato il PRIMO SATELLITE QUANTISTICO, Mozi (Micius) Mozi (墨子, Micius) filosofo cinese. Il satellite, annunciato come «primo passo per una RETE INTERNET QUANTISTICA GLOBALE», ha permesso di organizzare videoconferenze e trasmissioni crittografate.

#TradeWars (1/) Is Trump's trade war hurting China? The short answer is no. Listen to this great @Trade__Talks podcast with the amazing @SoumayaKeynes and @ChadBown interviewing China connoisseur Nicholas Lardy. tradetalkspodcast.com/podcast/102-is…
(2/) China's growth slowed after the Great Recession mostly because global trade slowed. The tariffs did not add anything to the existing trend. China's exports to the US did fall, but China's exports to the rest of the world picked up the slack.
How come? China has roughly a $12T economy. Exports to the US are about $550B, but in value added terms it's about half, say $250B which is the right number to compare to GDP. That's 2%. So even if it shrinks, it won't hurt China that much.

🔴 Exclusive: Google suspends some business with Huawei after Trump blacklist - source. #TradeWars

Reuters reports that Google is suspending some business with the Chinese manufacturer

<POTENTIALLY DESTABILIZING FOR #Huawei's PHONES TRADE, IF ACCURATE>

reuters.com/article/us-hua…
If report is accurate, Huawei could be restricted to using the Android Open Source Project (ASOP), losing access to [Android] updates, which would cut the company off from critical Google apps that consumers outside of China expect on Android devices.
Rumors say that Huawei was already preparing its own operating systems in the event of being banned from using Android and Windows, but given US fears about foreign interference, a home-grown OS is likely to face even more scrutiny than Google’s software❗️

COSCO A China State Run Co. that owns the Long Beach Naval Base thanks to @BillClinton
also currently has 2 of the 6 ports / shipping lanes at the Long Beach Port. Not to be confused with the Los Angeles Port located in the same bay. (San Pedras Bay)

@realDonaldTrump administration has made China sign a National Security deal in which China has agree'd to auction off the lease of the Long Beach Port and will be given a new lease allowing them to still keep a shipping lane under new landlords.

...provano a mostrare che questo sia un "mondo" meraviglioso quanto più possono...Eurodollar timidamente si porta a sostegno di #ES_F ma #FED Fund Futures segnalano ancora ZERO chance di un rate hike e sono ancora in negativo per il 2019!!!
...occhio qui ...liquidità dal Tesoro US...si partiva da 403, siamo 363...arrivo a 320 a marzo e 300 a giugno...è tutta liquidità che arriva al sistema, alla fine sulle riserve delle banche commerciali e che sostiene gli asset finanziari...#ES_F
...aggiornamento sulla liquidità globale,come detto il miglior indicatore di volatilità=liquidità lo avete dalla differenza tra max e min sul ticks Index US,serve uno "spread" >2.500 stabile altrimenti "no party"
CBs e Trump Boys sono in controllo totale, establishment brinda...

1- "Still, the well-established market consensus that the #Permian can continue to provide 1.5 million barrels per day of annual production growth for the foreseeable future is now starting to be called into question"
2- "In fact, so far in the third quarter, the hydraulic fracturing market has already softened significantly more than we expected in spite of the overall rig count holding up relatively well."
3- "Still, what is already clear is that unit well performance, normalized for lateral length and pounds of proppant pumped, is dropping in the Eagle Ford as the percentage of child wells continues to increase."

Okay, I think I figured out what is Trump's ultimate game in this escalated US-China trade tensions and I think he will get it. Will share my thoughts in a thread soon! 😎
1) What is Trump's ultimate game? RECIPROCAL TRADE & INVESTMENT. Pissed off about higher tariffs vs the US & non-tariff barriers. Regarding #China 🇨🇳, doesn't like forced tech transfers, Chinese industrial overcapacity, gov subs. But how to get this? Investment+Trade policy
2)Implemented #taxreforms that impacts 50% of global FDI stock & favors US as a destination; USD2trn of REPATRIATION of funds, lower retained earnings of foreign affiliates; higher INVESTMENT in the US b/c of expensing, re-shoring of manufacturing. Basically, good for earnings💪
