Huawei Insists 'We Are Not Spies', As Trump Prepares To Ban Their 5G Equipment. Getty [Updated on 8 February.] “Huawei has never and will never use U.K. -based hardware, software or information gathered in the U.K. or anywhere else globally, to assist other countries in gathering intelligence. Were Huawei ever to engage in malicious behavior, it would not go unnoticed – and it would certainly destroy our business.” So says the five-page letter, sent by the President of Huawei’s Carrier Business to British lawmakers last week (and made public on Wednesday), answering four questions that were put to them following material security concerns. The letter emphasizes the investments made (£2 billion) and jobs created (7,500) in the U.K. over the last five years, and reminds British politicians of the company’s 18-years and pivotal role in the country, providing “broadband and wireless infrastructure.”

However, it’s worth pointing out that it is U.K. concerns about reliance on Huawei tech that prompted the questions in the first place. All Smoke And No Fire? China Vs U.S.

What I Gotta Say About It. The EU – A CIA Covert Operation - Original by -- The upcoming British referendum on whether to stay in the European Union (EU) represents the culmination of a long term project by the United States to destroy the concept of national sovereignty in the Old World and replace it with a supranational entity with ironclad links to Washington.. Whether that longstanding ambition has succeeded will be decided on June 23 – which is why President Barack Obama made a special trip to the Mother Country to give them a little lecture on the alleged evils of nationalism and the goodness of the EU.

Some were shocked at the brazenness of such an aggressive intervention into a purely British affair by a sitting US President, but to anyone who knows the real history of the “European idea,” Obama’s pushiness is hardly surprising. The European Union was born in the bosom of the Central Intelligence Agency: that’s what declassified documents tell us about the origins of the European project and its progress since the Truman administration. Obama was pushed by Clintons into endorsement of Hillary in 2016: book. Obama and Bill Clinton (Getty Images) HUB-BUBBA: “The Amateur” says Bill Clinton’s animosity toward the president cooled only with a promised endorsement and a fawning January spot on “60 Minutes” with Hillary. ( ) President Obama made a secret deal to support Hillary Clinton when she runs for president in 2016, campaign sources say, payback for the support her husband gave him in 2012.

Bill Clinton’s animosity toward Obama is legendary. A year before the last election, he was urging Hillary to challenge the sitting president for the nomination — a move she rejected. According to two people who attended that meeting in Chappaqua, Bill Clinton then went on a rant against Obama. “I’ve heard more from Bush, asking for my advice, than I’ve heard from Obama,” my sources quoted Clinton as saying. For his part, Obama wasn’t interested in Bill Clinton upstaging him during the presidential campaign. But after his re-election, Obama began to have second thoughts. Spiritual Locations.


Patriarchy. Videos of Truth. The Trans-Pacific Plague. Bank Fraud. One Tweet Shows the Hypocrisy of the Media's Reaction to Riots in Baltimore. For up-to-date information about the escalating situation in Baltimore, see Mic's coverage here. On Saturday, over 2,000 protesters marched to Baltimore's City Hall to protest the death of 25-year-old black man Freddie Gray. Gray died on April 19 after suffering a spinal injury while in Baltimore Police Department custody a week earlier.

At some point between when Gray was put into a police van and shackled and the time paramedics were called over half an hour later, something nasty happened. According to Gray's family attorney, his spine was 80% severed at the neck. Deputy Police Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez admits that Gray gave up without the use of force. Since then, thousands of people have taken to the streets every day to demonstrate against the fate that befell Freddie Gray and countless other people who have been killed by police in America.

Here's how the Baltimore Sun covered the events on Sunday: The Wall Street Journal's Christopher Mims chimed in: Marine Recruits Arrive at MCRD.

The BC Civil Liberties Association is deeply concerned about the effects on freedom of expression of recent changes to hate speech laws and the 2015 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Israel regarding Public Diplomacy Cooperation. Section 318 of the Criminal Code prohibits advocating or promoting “genocide.” Genocide is defined as intending to destroy, in whole or in part, any “identifiable group” by killing members of the group or deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction.

The “identifiable groups” covered by this provision were expanded in 2014 in the misnamed “cyber-bullying bill.” Identifiable groups now include sections of the public not only distinguishable by ethnic origin, but also by national origin. All decent people will agree on the noxiousness of anti-Semitism.
