    BBC ^ | 16 February 2021 | By Leo Kelion Technology desk editor
    The use of "invisible" tracking tech in emails is now "endemic", according to a messaging service that analysed its traffic at the BBC's request. Hey's review indicated that two-thirds of emails sent to its users' personal accounts contained a "spy pixel", even after excluding for spam. Its makers said that many of the largest brands used email pixels, with the exception of the "big tech" firms. Defenders of the trackers say they are a commonplace marketing tactic. And several of the companies involved noted their use of such tech was mentioned within their wider privacy policies. Emails pixels can be...

    The Biden administration has withdrawn from Trump's policy on tracking Chinese influence in US schools and universities, reported Daily Caller. Chuck Ross, writing for the publication, informed that the Biden administration has quietly withdrawn from the proposed rule to the Department of Homeland Security on December 31, 2020, entitled "Establishing Requirement for Student and Exchange Visitor Program Certified Schools to Disclose Agreements with Confucius Institutes and Classrooms." The rule requires American schools and universities to disclose their partnerships with Confucius Institutes, which allegedly are front groups for Chinese Communist Party propaganda according to some US officials. As per Daily Caller,...
  • How to create a surveillance state

    American Thinker ^ | 8 Feb, 2021 | Terry Paulding
    When we first got cameras on our smartphones or signed up for social media, none of us realized that they would come to control our lives. In our technological age, we’ve all participated in creating our surveillance state, whether as enforcers or self-censoring victims. Thanks to the technology in our smartphones, each one of us has the capability to contribute, and many on the left seem to revel in the power. The rest of us must weigh every action we take, every word we say. If we say or do the “wrong” thing, we may no longer have the right...
  • CNN’s Tapper Asks Swalwell About Alleged Chinese Spy: ‘Can You Clarify How Much Contact You Had?’

    Congressman Eric Swalwell appeared on CNN Monday to discuss the impending impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. Towards the end of the interview, Jake Tapper asked about his past contact with an alleged Chinese spy. You may remember that last month, Axios dropped a pretty stunning report about suspected Chinese spy Christine Fang (also known as Fang Fang) targeting a number of U.S. politicians, including Swalwell. At the time, Swalwell’s office told Axios, “Rep. Swalwell, long ago, provided information about this person - whom he met more than eight years ago, and whom he hasn’t seen in nearly six...
  • 1985: Vladimir Vetrov, Farewell

    01/23/2021 10:50:16 AM PST · by CheshireTheCat · 8 replies ^ | January 23, 2013 | Headsman
    This date in 1985 spelled farewell for the KGB agent Vladimir Vetrov … code-named Farewell by the western handlers to whom he passed Soviet secrets. Vladimir Vetrov was a career officer in Soviet intelligence who grew disgruntled* and in 1980 went to work for the West. And he was no ordinary spy. Think Aldrich Ames, to the power of ten. Vladimir Vetrov oversaw the entire KGB directorate charged with a critical program: Line X, which surveilled western R&D and passed its fruits back to Mother Russia. In the 1960s and 1970s, Line X stole jaw-dropping volumes of military, computer, and...
  • Leftists Call For New “Secret Police” Force To Spy On Trump Supporters

    Perhaps channeling the spirit of the Soviet NKVD, leftists are now literally calling for a new “secret police” unit to be created at the federal level to spy on Trump supporters. In an article published by the Daily Beast, Jeff Stein argues that existing federal agencies like the FBI are ill-equipped to stop “white terror” because they missed signs of the the pre-planning of the Capitol building siege. The solution is to create a new “secret police” (yes, he literally uses those words) in order to “infiltrate and neutralize armed domestic extremists,” which according to the media’s latest narrative potentially...

    The U.S. Department of Education has requested information from the University of Alabama regarding alleged undisclosed ties between the university and the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. “It appears that UA has failed to report an alleged partnership with the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China,” a letter sent to UA President Stuart Bell on Dec. 22 stated. “The WIV, owned by the Chinese government’s Academy of Sciences, includes a maximum biocontainment laboratory (“MCL”) that may be closely linked to the origin and/or spread of the Chinese COVID-19 virus,” the letter continued. The investigation was initiated in light...
  • Sinister catch exposes China’s underwater spies on Australia’s doorstep

    An unexpected catch has revealed Beijing’s sneaky underwater spying activities right on Australia’s doorstep – a scary new escalation in tensions. An unexpected Christmas catch has revealed Beijing is actively surveying critical shipping choke-points to Australia’s north. And that could have dire implications if our trade-spat worsens. Three undersea spy drones have been caught in Indonesian waters. They appear to be a Chinese design, and they were in shipping lanes crucial for Australia’s security. They look like simple tubes with wings. But they’re packed full of sensors and a long-range transmitter to send their discoveries back to headquarters. RELATED: Secret...
  • George Blake: Soviet Cold War spy and former MI6 officer dies in Russia

    George Blake, the former MI6 officer and one of the Cold War's most infamous double agents, has died aged 98, Russian media has reported. Over nine years, the Soviet spy handed over information that led to the betrayal of at least 40 MI6 agents in Eastern Europe. He was jailed in London in 1960, but escaped in 1966 and fled to Russia. The Russian Foreign Intelligence Service said Blake "had a genuine love for our country".

    Sources within the Chinese government confirmed today that the spy who was assigned to date Rep. Eric Swalwell and get information from him abruptly returned to China and begged to be sent to a labor camp instead. "Please -- don't make me go back!" she begged after returning to China in 2015. "I'll do anything! I'll break rocks! I'll build a railroad! I'll -- I'll even make shoes for Nike! Just don't make me go back and date that man again!"

    Fox News ^ | 12/14/20 | Joseph A. Wulfsohn
    The New York Times has yet to cover the growing controversy surrounding Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., and his relationship with an alleged Chinese spy. Early last week, Axios published a bombshell report that a woman named Fang Fang, aka Christine Fang, forged ties with Swalwell while he was a city council member in Dublin, Calif. According to the report, Fang helped fundraise for Swalwell's 2014 reelection campaign and placed an intern in his office. Fang reportedly forged other ties with Democratic politicians, even engaging in sexual relations with at least two Midwestern mayors. Swalwell reportedly cut ties with Fang in...

  • China’s Facial Recognition AI Targeting Uighurs IS The Gestapo

    12/11/2020 8:18:59 AM PST · by Liberty7732 · 12 replies
    We’re hearing Gestapo thrown around a lot lately. It’s almost as though the legions of easily-propagandized ignorants wore out the constant mis-use of Nazi, Fascist and Hitler. Most of the Gestapo iterations of this are complete nonsense. Most. Not all. The Chinese Communist government’s police state apparatus is the modern day equivalent of the Gestapo. A report leaked to the Washington Post shows that the Chinese Communist government has tested, and is presumably using, AI facial recognition software developed by Huawei to identify the Muslim ethnic minority of Uighurs and alert police — read, Gestapo. The Post story reports: “The...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who sits on the sensitive House Intelligence Committee, said in response to an explosive story about ties to a suspected Chinese spy that “congressional leaders knew about” the matter and implied that they apparently did not think that it was a big enough issue to keep him off the Intelligence Committee. The alleged spy, Chinese national Christine Fang, “targeted up-and-coming local politicians in the Bay Area and across the country who had the potential to make it big on the national stage” through “campaign fundraising, extensive networking, personal charisma, and romantic or sexual relationships,” Axios reported....

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Security concerns were raised over how bad Chinese spying has gotten after it was revealed this week that Eric Swalwell had been secretly dating President Xi Jinping in a wig. "Hey, wait a minute!" said an FBI agent as he saw Rep. Swalwell holding hands with a woman who looked suspiciously like President Xi in light makeup, a dress, and a wig. "That's that Chinese guy! Get him!" Pulling the wig off, the agent revealed the Chinese woman to be Xi himself.

    The disclosures regarding US politicians, including a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Eric Swalwell as chronicled here by my colleague Bonchie, having been compromised by a Chinese “Honey Trap” only REINFORCE the FACT that the Chinese Communist Party and the People’s Liberation Army are a malevolent force in the world, and Western cultural and moral norms are irrelevant to the tactics they are willing to employ to advance the interests of the Party and the Military. “Red Sparrow” has historically been a reference to Russian/Soviet intelligence agencies’ use of female intelligence operatives to lure western officials...
  • Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell Screamed About Russia for Four Years -- But He Was Cozy With a Chinese Spy

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) spent the entire (first?) Trump term screaming that the president was cozy with, even a puppet of, Russia and Vladimir Putin. Swalwell practically based his entire presidential run on the tale, even after the Mueller report cleared the president of any alleged collusion. But as my colleague Stacey Lennox reported earlier today, Rep. Swalwell has a compromising Chinese connection. Accused Chinese spy Christine Fang successfully targeted several Bay Area Democrats including Swalwell for several years. Her connection to him was deeper than most; according to Axios, which broke the story, Fang engaged in fundraising for Swalwell....

    Tucker Carlson’s team reached out to Swalwell’s office and asked if Swalwell had an intimate relationship with honeypot and spy Christine Fang and they replied they couldn’t comment because that information could be “classified.” Swalwell cannot be trusted with classified information and should immediately be removed from the House Intelligence Committee.
