Quote of @thorstenbenner
Germany 🇩🇪 sold Europe to Russia with their reliance on Russia for gas and NOW they have decided to run their 5G infrastructure on China’s Huawei. Germany’s leadership continues to make the worst possible decisions for their own national security. #Germany #China #Russia 1/2
By the end of this year, according to estimates 59% of 5G RAN in Germany (and 100% in Berlin) will be provided by Huawei.

This is an abysmal failure to protect critical infrastructure, going against key intentions of law Bundestag passed against Merkel’s Huawei open door policy.

Apple’s disgraceful Tim Cook. Hillary Vaughn: ‘Hi Mr Cook. Do you support the Chinese people’s right to protest?’ @tim_cook : Silence - Vaughn: ‘Do you have any reaction to the factory workers that were beaten and detained for protesting lockdowns?’ Tim Cook: Silence 1/4
🚨WATCH: Apple CEO Tim Cook ignores our questions on China as zero-COVID lockdown protests rage in the country. Full video 👇🏻

Pretending to be ESG conscious whilst being willfully ignorant of the genocide and crimes against humanity in China should cost firms like BlackRock and others dearly. Bravo to Florida for taking a stand. #ESG #genocide #crimesagainsthumanity @BlackRock @blackstone #China

It’s obvious that Tik Tok is a clear and present danger to the security of the United States. It’s time to ban it’s use. Nanpeng Shen’s constant communication with the CCP should also be carefully investigated by US authorities. @bpcostello #TikTok #NationalSecurity

US inventories of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel are at dangerously low levels. Wind farms and solar panels aren’t going to help us out of this mess. Biden just green-lighted importing additional production from Venezuela (Amnesty International comments below). #OOTT #NoPlan

Further evidence Xi is panicking due to the protests. Lao Baixing can no longer purchase BLANK pieces of paper because waving blank paper is now a threat to Chinese national security! #China #Unraveling #ChinaProtests #XiJinping #Xi #CPC #CCPChina @globaltimesnews @HuXijin_GT
People are not allowed to talk or type or write anything, because it’s not Positive Energy according to Xi-CCP. So Chinese holding blank papers protest everywhere.
Here is a statement from M&G stationary Inc that supply of A4 papers is suspended for national security 🤡
Quote of @GLNoronha
Westerners, the proverbial writing has been on the Great Wall for many years now. You aren’t safe in China or Hong Kong. Xi Jinping will crush you if you report the truth about the Communist Party of China. So, you will print the party line or you will be excommunicated

Xi on ‘tilt’…Chinese bots flooding the zone with escort ads. #XiFall #Democracy #DemocracyNotAutocracy #CCP #CPC
Chinese bots are flooding Twitter with *escort ads*, possibly to make it more difficult for Chinese users to access information about the mass protests. Some of these acts have been dormant for years, only to become active yesterday after protests broke out in China. for example:
Quote of @nytimes
The Chinese are revolting against the draconian prison camps designed to implement ‘zero COVID’. From Beijing to Shanghai to Xi’s alma mater, Tsinghua University…they are all shouting ‘Down with Xi Jinping and Down with the Communist Party’. Chinese people yearn for democracy.
A deadly fire in Urumqi, the capital of China's Xinjiang region, has unleashed the most defiant eruption of public anger against the ruling Communist Party in years. In Shanghai, some residents even called for the party's leader, Xi Jinping, to step down.
Quote of @BjornLomborg
And given the complete lack of any viable energy transition policies in Europe and the U.S., these ‘cold death’ numbers will certainly worsen over the next decade. Adding to this misery, the sky-high LNG prices coupled with Putin’s war crimes are causing food inflation and

The virus 🦠 that first emanated from Wuhan, China is the ‘warm-up’ for much tighter control of China’s 1.3b (90 million CCP party members not counted) people. Responsible global actors don’t have to build walls (bricks and cyber both) to keep their citizens IN. #Taiwan next.

JUST IN - All 63552 residents of this town in Zhejiang province packed like sardines to take a PCR test.
Authority switched their COVID pass to code yellow.

Chinese people's whole life are locked into the digital COVID passport which can be turned off at the flick of a switch
If you try to enter public place with a yellow QR code...immediately an alarm goes off.

Chinese govt can easily cut you off from society by remotely switch your health passport to code yellow or red

A green QR code needed to access to transport, food...even residential complex

China is rapidly running out of dollars. Similar to South Korea in 97-98, China has instructed its banks to ‘prop-up’ the yuan and the HKD by selling dollars to buy their own currency. South Korea lied to the word about their reserves just like China is doing today. #China
