Battlefield Social Media: The West’s Growing Censorship

SOC3422

Censorship in the West flourishes as tech giants turn social media back into traditional programmed media. The United States, United Kingdom and the European Union are fond of passing judgement on nations around the globe regarding “free speech.” While it is increasingly clear to a growing number of people that this “concern” is disingenuous and aimed at merely…

NATO’s Slow-Motion Blitzkrieg Eastward

BLI456223

When the US announced it would be reducing the number of its troops stationed in Germany many hoped in vain it would be the beginning of an overall reduction of US forces in Europe and a deescalation of tensions between the US, NATO and the Russian Federation. Many others, however, easily predicted these forces would simply be moved elsewhere in Europe…

Twitter Bans “QAnon,” But Still Protects the Most Dangerous Disinfo

TWI342366

While there are no doubts that the “QAnon” political movement is a purveyor of repeatedly absurd and unfounded claims, “predictions” so inaccurate and consistently wrong that it is difficult to take any of it seriously, Twitter’s move to across-the-board ban not only accounts associated with the movement but any talk of it citing fears…

Washington’s War on Huawei Continues

5GH

For Washington, Chinese telecommunication giant Huawei presents a nearly unsolvable problem. We can draw this conclusion by looking at how the US has chosen to compete, or rather, what it is substituting instead for what should be competition. CNET in an article titled, “White House reportedly considering federal intervention in 5G,” would explain: 5G networks across the US could get…

The COVID-19 Chronicles: Western Europe

WORK8564

Western Europe (we’ll define as France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Portugal, and Austria) shows how regions of the world with existing socioeconomic problems have seen Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) simply amplify them while in other regions where fundamentals have been stronger (China and ASEAN), have simply been temporarily setback…

The COVID-19 Chronicles: Eastern Europe

ALB34232

Like much of Asia, Eastern Europe appears to have weathered the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) crisis relatively well, at least in terms of overcoming a health crisis. Total reported infections and deaths have been much lower across these nations, and the Western media has taken turns wondering just how this is possible. Statistics indicate that Covid-19 has impacted…

The COVID-19 Chronicles: ASEAN

ASCOV3422

The ten Southeast Asian states of ASEAN with a collective population of 622 million people has weathered the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) relatively well. A combination of quick reactions, a hesitation to overreact and strong preexisting economic fundamentals, the region looks well on its way to returning to normal, that is, if it is able to resist the “new normal…

The COVID-19 Chronicles: China

CHI43242

With the US spiraling downward, a downward trajectory merely steepened by the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak, we’d expect other nations to suffer likewise. But China, where we are told the virus first appeared, has already bounced back. While it has significant damage to repair socioeconomically, it has not only overcome the initial outbreak…

The COVID-19 Chronicles: USA

US42342

The US is claimed to be hardest hit by COVID-19 with, at the time of writing, over 80,000 deaths attributed to the virus. The nation is also suffering from socioeconomic disaster as lockdowns have driven millions of Americans into not only unemployment, but predictable poverty and hunger as a result. The crisis has been pounced upon by special interests to help propel various…

As Russia Sends Aid, US and NATO Sneer and Smear

AID3422

When Russian military planes and trucks arrived in Italy to provide relief for communities hit by the Covid-19 outbreak, the Italian government, elected into power by the Italian people, was thankful for the assistance offered by Moscow. Named officials within the Italian government, including the foreign minister, the minister of defense and the governor of Apulia…

AI Arms Race: Future of Warfare

Server room or server computers.3d rendering.

The truth about artificial intelligence (AI) and the process of machine learning (algorithms which learn on their own rather than perform tasks based on human programming) is somewhat less spectacular than depicted in Hollywood movies. Yet the impact of advanced information technology on modern warfare will be significant nonetheless. Already, machine learning is…

Covid-19 Hysteria Vs. Your Actual (Very Low) Chance of Dying

COR333

How likely are you to die from Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19)? Based on the hysteria spreading across the globe, it would seem like the chances are fairly high. But Statnews.com would report on the actual projected death rate of those who contract Covid-19 based on US Center for Disease Control (CDC) data, noting…
