  • Putin: Russia-China military alliance can't be ruled out

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday there is no need for a Russia-China military alliance now, but noted it could be forged in the future. Putin's statement signaled deepening ties between Moscow and Beijing amid growing tensions in their relations with the United States. The Russian leader also made a strong call for extending the last remaining arms control pact between Moscow and Washington. Asked during a video conference with international foreign policy experts Thursday whether a military union between Moscow and Beijing was possible, Putin replied that “we don't need it, but, theoretically, it’s quite possible to imagine it.”...

    China is one of the most censorious societies on earth. So what better place for ­Facebook to recruit social-media censors? There are at least half a dozen “Chinese nationals who are working on censorship,” a former Facebook insider told me last week. “So at some point, they [Facebook bosses] thought, ‘Hey, we’re going to get them H-1B visas so they can do this work.’ ” The insider shared an internal directory of the team that does much of this work. It’s called Hate-Speech Engineering (George Orwell, call your office), and most of its members are based at Facebook’s offices in...
  • China is Using Companies like Twitter to Interfere in the Election: Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter’s businesses are tethered to the Communist regime

    Last year, Amazon was forced to shut down its marketplace business in the People’s Republic of China. Amazon’s defeat followed that of a long line of Big Tech players who had tried to make a go of it in China and failed miserably. China’s economy is built to boost domestic businesses and foreign exports, with some needed imports, by companies linked to the Communist Party. And no matter how politically correct Amazon may try to be, it can never join that club. But Amazon’s business in China isn’t done. To a large degree, Amazon’s business is China. Behind the smiling...

    Japan and Vietnam agreed on Monday to strengthen security and economic ties, including an agreement in principle for Japan to export military gear and technology to the Southeast Asian nation, amid concerns about China’s regional assertiveness. “It is a big step in the field of security for both countries that we reached an agreement in principle on the transfers of defence equipment and technology,” Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga told reporters after meeting his Vietnamese counterpart, Nguyen Xuan Phuc, in Hanoi. “Vietnam, which is serving as ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian nations) chair this year, is key to realise a...

    Strategy is seen as a tolerable one for Beijing while it focuses on bigger issues like overhauling its economy and managing competition with Washington ‘There is still no incentive for Beijing to provoke a war over Taiwan, since war would only make all of China’s problems far worse’ China is pushing a new strategy to carefully step up military pressure on self-ruled Taiwan, but not to the point of provoking a real war, analysts said. Recent moves include military drills conducted by the People’s Liberation Army near the Taiwan Strait, which included an island invasion drill during Taiwan’s “Double Tenth”...

    Breitbart is reporting that one of Hunter Biden's business partners has turned over emails allegedly showing how Hunter Biden and his associates helped communist-aligned Chinese officials secure private meetings with the Obama-Biden White House. It's the first business associate of Hunter Biden to confirm that Hunter enriched himself by trading on his father's influence. The emails are unconnected to the other emails at the center of the New York Post reporting.  The new emails detail how Hunter Biden and his associates used their access to Hunter's father, Vice President Joe Biden, to arrange private White House meetings for clients and...

    CETC, a state-owned Chinese company, has released a new video claiming to show the successful test of a ‘barrage swarm’ that launches 48 attack drones to saturate a target. It is described as the first practical Chinese swarming drone system. The details of the tests carried out in September were released on Tuesday by the Institute of Electronic Science and Technology of China. The drones are launched from a vehicle based on the Dongfeng Menshi, which evolved from a license-built version of the U.S. Hummer H1. The drones are launched with compressed air, then unfold their wings and fly to...

    Long-term strategic struggles, like the U.S.-versus-China confrontation, do not submit to bombshell headlines and snapshot predictions. When very large and powerful political, economic and cultural organizations conflict, years judge the slow war process of achieving strategic gain or suffering damaging loss, not talking heads on 24/7 news outlets. Some 30 years ago, the Chinese Communist Party and its intelligence agencies bet digital-information delivery dominance would be a decisive advantage in a long-term struggle for global dominance. I emphasize delivery, for dominating the material and physical (equipment and infrastructure) means for delivering digital information gives the dominator an edge in providing,...

    aiwan has long looked to the United States for protection from the massive forces of the Chinese mainland 100 miles to the west. Now Taipei is calling for robust defense ties with Washington amid growing concerns of potential conflict as Beijing's warplanes conduct regular fly-by's, threatening reunification by force. Aircraft of the People's Liberation Army continued to enter Taiwan's declared air defense identification throughout the weekend, even as the self-ruling island celebrated "National Day"—an occasion commemorating the end of the Qing Dynasty and the establishment of the Republic of China, which Taiwan officially calls itself. But as the rival People's...

    Key Point: Even now, Beijing's industrial capacity and its shipyards are cranking out vessels quicker than Washington can. What would happen if America suddenly needed to replace its ships? The United States could lose a Western Pacific naval war because Communist China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) can regenerate combat power more readily than the U.S. sea services can. Or, more precisely, China’s sprawling industrial base could replace hardware lost in action faster than could U.S. industry. That’s a message General David Berger, the commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, will reportedly broadcast in a forthcoming directive entitled Naval Campaigning: The...
