Russia and China: Threat level to the West.
Contrarian posted a topic in The Rest of the WorldIn describing the naivety of the politicians, the German intelligence services said "Russia is the storm, China is climate change." They also slammed the Government’s “Naivety” on Chinese Espionage. Report from last year: https://www.dw.com/en/china-spying-on-germany-say-intelligence-chiefs/a-63467038 What is your take? I even added option d) for some of you. Inclusivity for all. 😄 a) Russia and China are the same when it comes to threat level b) China is the bigger threat c) Russia is the bigger threat d) I don't consider them threats, I want to be run by the CCP and the FSB as I don't like the current Western leaders. MY BIAS: 2 communists posing as nationalists and traditionalists below: *Do you see how Mr. Yi shakes Putin's hand? Shows you who is in control in my estimation. 😄 Body language is all in communication.
China Has Been Waging a Decades-Long, All-Out Spy War
Contrarian posted a topic in Federal PoliticsA few months back, I came across a report from the German Intelligence that shed light on the pervasive reach of China's Communist Party in the West. The report highlighted the politicians' naivety and lack of understanding of the CCP's tentacles. The Germans aptly compared Russia to a storm and China to climate change, emphasising the long-term and far-reaching impact of China's actions: https://www.dw.com/en/china-spying-on-germany-say-intelligence-chiefs/a-63467038 Obviously, there are so many threads on this forum as well about the CCP's Foreign Interference scandal here in Canada. This second article below speaks to the overall point and traces the history of the intelligence war: via Foreign Policy One week ago, TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew was questioned by members of the U.S. Congress, before the world’s media, about whether the Chinese government uses the wildly popular video-sharing app to spy on Americans. His testimony came several weeks after the appearance of a Chinese spy balloon floating across the United States. What are we to make of these two stories, which are at their core both about Chinese espionage? To borrow a phrase from Mission: Impossible: Relax, it’s much worse than you think. We are now witnessing some of the effects of a decision made years ago by China to use every means and medium of intelligence-gathering at its disposal against the West. Its strategy can be summarized in three words: collect, collect, collect. Most Westerners do not yet appreciate just how sweeping China’s intelligence onslaught directed at their countries is; for decades, their own governments likewise didn’t understand because their attention was largely directed elsewhere.

Trending via Warren Kinsella, lawyer, Twitter Page: ---> Pierre Poilievre denounces Conservative MPs' meeting with far-right German politician. Poilievre condemns 'vile' views of German politicians seen lunching with Conservative MPs. He understands, in my view, what will happen if Conservatives here start getting confused with populists and fringes. My opinion is good for Poilievre coming in front of this. This is a golden rule in politics, one to just come in front of the scandal right away, and don't waste time. Not like Joe Biden, hesitating.
Real Representatives and False Representatives
Exegesisme posted a topic in Federal PoliticsReal Representatives and False Representatives By Exegesisme The real representative is Germany, which I see from Germany Constitution. "Article 38 [Elections] (1) The deputies to the German House of Representatives [bundestag] are elected in general, direct, free, equal, and secret elections. They are representatives of the whole people, not bound by orders and instructions, and subject only to their conscience."(a) The false representative is in Canada, which I see from this website.(b ) "Whether MPs should act as delegates or trustees, both views of representation are constrained by another reality of Canada's parliamentary tradition: party politics and discipline. Most MPs are members of a political party and, as such, are required to follow the wishes of their party when deliberating and acting in the House. In Canada party discipline is much more acute than in other western democracies. In the United States and the United Kingdom, for example, representatives enjoy considerably more freedom from their parties. Canadian MPs, however, are expected to follow the direction set by their parties' leadership and caucus — even when that direction is in opposition to their views or the demands of their constituents." My comment: Canada representatives should be collectively shameful to work in such an upset system and without do any useful job to change this system, as comparing to the representatives in Germany. They even can not keep their conscience as they vote in this system. The behaviors of the representatives and their parties in the House of Commons are unconstitutional, their parties even force them lose their constitutional fundamental freedom of conscience, and they even do not dare to stand up to protect their own constitutional fundamental freedom of conscience in the House of Commons. "2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms: (a) freedom of conscience and religion; (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication; (c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and (d) freedom of association."(c ) And farther more, Our Canada Constitution should be shameful, for even nowadays there still is not clear written constitutional chapter for the executive branch to use the executive power. "Canada’s Constitution is also based upon numerous unwritten conventions. These are rules and norms that have never been formally written in a constitutional document, but are regularly observed nevertheless. Many of these unwritten rules have been inherited from Britain (with some modification), while others are unique to the Canadian constitutional context. Important examples include the predominant role and influence played by the Prime Minister of Canada (in Cabinet and in the executive branch in general)."(d ) Through these unwritten conventions, the executive branch has been stealing the power of the legislative branch and has been depriving the clear written constitutional fundamental freedom of conscience of those MPs. My conclusion: the executive branch has not enough obvious written constitutional resource to practice its leadership, through the unwritten conventions "secretly" steals the power of the legislative branch, and cause heavily potential conflicts with other obvious written constitutional contents. The constitutional inner conflicts should be fixed as soon as possible.
