America is fighting a raging pandemic, high unemployment and explosive social unrest, all at the same time. But none of these is the greatest threat to our economic future. So what is? A superpower bully that wants to rule the world.
Comment by tonytran2015: A valuable source to many important historical facts.
Ok, so the first thing we should establish is when the first German laws were made that directly targeted Jews.
The first major law to curtail the rights of Jewish
citizens was the “Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil
Service” of April 7, 1933, according to which Jewish and “politically
unreliable” civil servants and employees were to be excluded from state
Next, establish when Judea declared war on Germany. As shown in the previous post, this was done as early as March 24, 1933, at least 2
weeks before any German laws were enacted. Plus there was this message
given by Bernard Lecache, President of the World Jewish League, in 1932:
Germany is our public enemy number one. It is our object to declare war without mercy against her.
So if nothing else, we can at least rule out that these boycotts were done as a direct response to German laws targeting Jewish people, since they were started before those German laws were even enacted. Not to
mention some Zionist groups in Germany opposed these boycotts. In any
case, things escalated when Germany decided to boycott Jewish goods in response. As you could imagine, things would only get worse from there.
The U.S. telecommunications regulator voted in November 5-0 to issue the declaration and proposed requiring rural carriers to remove and replace equipment from the two Chinese companies from existing U.S. networks. “We cannot and will not allow the Chinese Communist Party to exploit network vulnerabilities and compromise our critical communications infrastructure,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a statement Tuesday.
Huawei and ZTE did not immediately respond to requests for comment but have previously sharply criticized the FCC’s actions.
FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks said on Tuesday that “untrustworthy equipment” remains in place in U.S. networks and said the U.S. Congress must allocate funding for replacements.
In May 2019, Trump signed an executive order declaring a national emergency and barring U.S. companies from using telecommunications equipment made by companies posing a national security risk. The Trump administration also added Huawei to its trade blacklist last year.
What prompted the ban?
India’s Ministry of Information Technology has said the ban was the result of
“many complaints from various sources” about apps that were “stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorised manner”.
… US senators have even called for an investigation into TikTok, which fiercely rejects such claims.
The Indian government said in its statement that, “the
compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures”.
… In 2017, Alibaba’s UC Browser had come under the scanner for allegedly leaking mobile data of Indian users. And that year, India’s defence ministry asked all armed personnel and officers to uninstall 42 Chinese apps it classified as “spyware”, according to media reports.
NSW Labor leader Jodi McKay will move to suspend
Shaoquett Moselmane from Parliament, a day after the Government
announced it planned do just that.
- MP Shaoquett Moselmane was suspended from the Labor Party on Friday
- He is under investigation from ASIO and the AFP for alleged Chinese agent links
- The motion to suspend from Parliament won’t occur until August due to winter break
Mr Moselmane, an Upper House MP, is being investigated over allegations Chinese Government agents had infiltrated his office.
He was suspended from the Labor Party on Friday after his house and office were raided by agents from the Australian Federal Police in a joint-investigation with ASIO.
It meant that Mr Moselmane was no longer part of Labor Caucus but could still sit in the Upper House as a member of parliament.
The AFP confirmed search warrants were executed in Sydney on Friday as part
of an ongoing investigation and that there was no threat to the community.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Australia would “stand up” to any attempted at foreign interference.
“The threats in this area are real, the need to take action is necessary,” Mr Morrison said. “We won’t cop anyone coming and seeking to
interfere in our political system.”
Mr Moselmane’s pro-Beijing positions has long raised eyebrows even among colleagues in the Labor Party.
- The Australian Federal Police and ASIO said they executed the search “as part of an ongoing investigation”
- Labor is cooperating with the agencies
- NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance said he was “horrified” by the allegations
NSW Labor leader Jodi McKay confirmed she was aware of the raids, and that the party would suspend Mr Moselmane’s membership.
Ms McKay described reports that Mr Moselmane’s office had allegedly been
infiltrated by Chinese government agents as “dreadfully concerning”.
Ms McKay said suspending Mr Moselmane’s membership was “the right thing to do”.
In identical statements, the AFP and ASIO said they were “executing search
warrants in Sydney this morning as part of an ongoing investigation”.
Mr Moselmane is being questioned in the presence of the clerk and his lawyer.
Ms McKay said Labor was cooperating with the agencies involved.
Joe Biden invoked the 18th century “Logan Act” during a controversial 2017 Oval Office meeting to discuss the Michael Flynn investigation, less than two weeks before President Trump was sworn into office, according to newly released notes taken by former FBI special agent Peter Strzok.
According to Flynn’s legal team, “it appears” that Biden “personally raised the idea” of using the obscure law to prosecute Flynnn over his communications with the former Russian Ambassador to the United States – in which he asked Moscow to “reciprocate moderately” in response to sanctions placed on Russia over election meddling.
A radio station controlled by the Chinese Communist Party propaganda outlet Phoenix TV has been ordered by the Trump administration to cease its broadcasts within 48 hours.
