China is buying begging and stealing to get an edge on Silicon Valley

When Chinese President Xi Jinping declared last year that he wanted his nation to become a world leader in advanced technologies by 2025, many thought the goal was too ambitious. It took decades for the United States, Japan, and EU nations to establish their technological dominance in robotics, AI, and biotech. For China to catch up in less than a decade seemed unlikely.

Now, it seems like China is well on track to achieve their goal. They haven’t started from scratch to train and their own scientists and engineers on these and other high-tech industries. Instead, they’ve excelled at tactics that most nations rarely consider. They’re literally buying, begging, and stealing their way into technological dominance.

A report by NPR notes that Chinese companies are grabbing up as many smaller technology companies as they can. One way they’re able to do this is by spying on these companies’ financials through “spy chips” placed on motherboards manufactured in China. By finding vulnerable companies, they’re able to swoop in before the public is aware of potential financial distress.

As for begging, they’re using a technique known as “greenfield investments” where they build companies from the ground up across the world, then hire away employees from established companies to gain access to their knowledge and expertise. These investments are often heralded by politicians who tout the job creation involved, but the dangers associated with the practice are often ignored.

According to Michael Brown, managing director of the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Unit, this is a bigger problem than just transfer of employment to Chinese companies.

China Makes A Big Play In Silicon Valley

https://www.npr.org/2018/10/07/654339389/china-makes-a-big-play-in-silicon-valley“I’d say they’re very systematic, very long term in their approach and very well-funded,” Brown says.

And, he notes, there is serious concern in Washington that China could acquire too much sensitive U.S. technology and transfer it back home.

“They don’t play by the same rules that we do. So cybertheft is on the table; industrial espionage is on the table,” Brown says.

This brings us to the last tactic in China’s high-tech playbook. They’re stealing technology, literally. This has been well documented with evidence ranging from copying microchip technologies to stealing plans for stealth military aircraft. As Brown pointed out, the rules are different there. They are willing to try to take whatever they can and are daring America and other nations to catch them if they can.

Technology is the key to economic prosperity now and in the future. He who holds the keys to advancement has his other hand in everyone’s wallet. If this aspect of China’s progress continues to be ignored, they will not only meet their goals. They’ll surpass the rest of the world and hold us all as technological hostages.

Russian meddling is about dividing us, not helping Trump

Russian meddling is about dividing us not helping Trump

Russia is meddling with our elections. They’re meddling with our entire political system. They’re meddling in our culture, freedoms, and methods of communication. I once believed they were trying to help Donald Trump become President. Now I realize they are simply elements of chaos.

Today’s report of charges filed against a Russian agent working against American interests is striking for two reasons. First, the details they’ve been able to uncover about “Project Lakhta” are astounding. Second, their strategic goal was NOT to get one person or one party into office but to sow division among the American people regardless of their political ideology.

First charge filed against Russian for interfering with elections

http://noqreport.com/2018/10/19/first-charge-filed-russian-interfering-elections/“The strategic goal of this alleged conspiracy, which continues to this day, is to sow discord in the U.S. political system and to undermine faith in our democratic institutions,” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “This case demonstrates that federal law enforcement authorities will work aggressively to investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of unlawful foreign influence activities whenever feasible, and that we will not stand by idly while foreign actors obstruct the lawful functions of our government. I want to thank the agents and prosecutors for their determined work on this case.”

Russia didn’t want Trump or Clinton to be President. They didn’t really care who won. All they wanted and continue to want is that no matter who wins any given election, the opposition will be so hateful about the loss that they’re willing to act out more aggressively than they otherwise would have normally.

It’s finally becoming clear that Russia’s plan is much more subverted and, frankly, ingenious than anything mainstream media or the Democrats could have ever fathomed.

They are taking advantage of our freedom of speech and the technology that allows that speech to reach the masses. They’re theory is that if they can get people on both sides of the political spectrum to voice their opinions with hate rather than understanding, it will spread. Those who have practiced thoughtful debate are now becoming raving ranters. Those who once argued their points thoughtfully are now becoming trolls.

Russia is not the only negative actor in this and the trends were already pointing to this divisiveness taking hold and spreading like a virus well before Project Lakhta was conceived, but they have definitely added to the cacophony and harnessed our vilest emotional responses to be used against us.

Their goal is to push as many people towards the fringes as possible. They want the far-left and the far-right to grow. They want debates to turn into arguments, then arguments to turn into blind rage. From there, they speculated that we would be the initiators of our own destruction.

They may be right.

From the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation debacle to the illegal immigration debate to anything that has to do with gun rights, Americans on both sides of the aisle are becoming more passionate. That’s leading many to become unhinged. When enough people are unhinged, any hopes of civil discourse can be forgotten. We are getting to the point where we no longer discuss our differences. We simply try to shout our perspectives louder than those opposed to us.

The left is the easier target. I’m not just saying that as a conservative. I say that because their position on issues make it easier for them to be emotional when news breaks about an event important to them. This is why those who blame racism for everything are not only seeing racism in every aspect of American life but are feeling justified in practicing their own versions of racism.

We now see that Russia’s goal wasn’t to get Trump elected. It was to make one side or the other absolutely hate the outcome regardless of who won. They aren’t pushing a political agenda. They’re pushing a cultural apocalypse.

If Keith Ellison wins his election, #MeToo has officially jumped the shark

If Keith Ellison wins his election MeToo has officially jumped the shark

Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) should be a prime target for the #MeToo movement. He’s a powerful man who allegedly abused his ex-girlfriend. She has corroboration and evidence to back her claims. She’s a fellow Democrat, so she’s not a political plant by his opposition. She’s a woman with a story of abuse that, by #MeToo movement standards, should be believed.

The problem is Ellison is a powerful Democrat, a Muslim, a minority, and is in the middle of a tight election. Therefore, he’s protected from the people who would have sunk Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation despite no evidence or corroboration.

The hypocrisy of it all is stunning. The message being sent by the #MeToo movement based on their unwillingness to confront Ellison and call for his removal from offices, current and future, is that women are to be believed if they’re accusing the right people. Keith Ellison isn’t the right person. He’s an ally to the #MeToo movement because he’s a Democrat, a Muslim, a minority, and someone who’s in the middle of an important election in Minnesota.

Despite the #MeToo movement looking away, it seems that voters in Minnesota are starting to look closer.

Domestic abuse charges diminishing Ellison’s lead

https://onenewsnow.com/politics-govt/2018/10/16/domestic-abuse-charges-diminishing-ellisons-leadRep. Keith Ellison’s (D-Minn.) lead in the polls – to become Minnesota’s newest attorney general in the midterm elections – has continued to vanish after his ex-girlfriend’s domestic abuse allegations.

Before the Karen Monahan’s charges were made public, the Democratic Muslim candidate was believed to be a shoe-in in the contest to become the deep-blue state’s top cop, but since then, polls show that his once long-shot Republican competitor, Doug Wardlow, has closed in on him – big time.

Misogyny and abuse of power are real problems in America. This is why the initial iteration of the #MeToo movement was so powerful. It worked. That cannot be denied. But what it has become is a shadow of its original self.

The highest ranking law enforcement official n the state of Minnesota may be a many accused by his ex-girlfriend of physical and mental abuse. Unfortunately, #MeToo doesn’t believe her.

#MeToo will only go after people like Keith Ellison if there’s incontrovertible evidence against them. They’ll go after Brett Kavanaugh no matter what. #MeToo is not the women’s empowerment movement they claim to be. It’s a political activist front.

Tom Cotton’s conspiracy theory about Christine Blasey Ford is outrageous. And probably correct.

Tom Cottons conspiracy theory about Christine Blasey Ford is outrageous And probably correct

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) believes it’s possible that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was behind the leaks of Christine Blasey Ford’s anonymous accusation letter against Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Tom Cotton Believes Chuck Schumer Is Behind Ford’s Leaked Letter | The Daily Caller

https://dailycaller.com/2018/10/09/tom-cotton-chuck-schumer-christine-blasey-ford-leaked-letter/“I believe the Schumer political operation was behind this from the very beginning,” Cotton told conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt during his radio show.

Ford wrote Democratic lawmakers a letter in July accusing Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct more than 35 years ago. During the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in September, Ford said she did not authorize the letters release, despite it being made public.

My Take

It’s actually refreshing to see the Senator “going there” with an accusation that is so polarizing. Had it been anyone other than a U.S. Senator putting the idea forward (and many have tried before now) it would be dismissed and get no attention. Now that Cotton has put the idea out to the public, perhaps we can actually start asking real questions.

What many Americans don’t know is that nothing on the Democratic side of the aisle in the Senate happens without Schumer’s approval and input. Nothing. He is arguably the most controlling leader Washington DC has seen in modern history, quietly chastising any actions that did not receive his blessing.

Somebody leaked the letter, which allegedly went to Senator Dianne Feinstein’s office and nowhere else. The weak reply from the Democrats is that it was probably one of Ford’s friends, but the letter itself was leaked to the Washington Post, not the accusation. While it’s very likely she told friends or family about the letter, it’s not as likely she sent copies of it to them and claimed that she doesn’t remember sending it to anyone other than Feinstein.

What also makes the Schumer angle compelling is that the timing matches his style. Throughout his career, he has demonstrated a mastery of timing out when to say what and when this or that is to be released. For Feinstein to sit on it without orders from her boss doesn’t match her history, but it definitely matches Schumer’s.

Somebody leaked it against Ford’s wishes, plummeting her life and the lives of Justice Kavanaugh’s family into turmoil. If anything needs to be further investigated in postscript of the confirmation, it’s how Feinstein and/or Schumer played these people like pawns.
