CBS: U.S. watching “escalation of armed confrontation” near Ukraine’s border with Russia

The U.S. military believes a buildup of Russian forces near the border with Ukraine, seen as “concerning” on Tuesday, is likely a training exercise. But the gathering of troops comes amid heightened tension in the region, and Ukraine’s Commander-In-Chief Ruslan Khomchack told his country’s parliament this week that Russian forces from different regions had been assembling near the border.

Russia’s president has acknowledged an “escalation of armed confrontation” in the region.

Training exercises were always a possible explanation for the buildup, but a U.S. defense official told CBS News that the locations and types of units seen on the ground didn’t line up with what the Russian Ministry of Defense had announced last month.

Brad Johnson on China as the first second and third most existential threat to the USA (and the West)

(The connection was sub optimal that day so there was some drop outs and other issues which are not detracting from the message but make it a bit annoying at times.)

Nigel Farage adds a few words about China

Brad Johnson: “We are at war with China in all ways except actual shooting”

This interview was recorded on December 16, 2020 but was just edited and published now. There is not a word that is outdated however.

Here is the segment CBC posted back when it was not fully the voice of the COMINTERN and had some interests in the existence of Canada as a polity separate from communist China. A small part of this I edited into the Brad Johnson interview.

UPDATE #2

DAILY MAIL – Loyal members of the Chinese Communist Party are working in British consulates, universities and for some of the UK’s leading companies, The Mail on Sunday can reveal

An extraordinary leaked database of<b> 1.95 million registered party members </b>reveals how Beijing’s malign influence now stretches into almost every corner of British life, including defence firms, banks and pharmaceutical giants.

Most alarmingly, some of its members – who swear a solemn oath to ‘guard Party secrets, be loyal to the Party, work hard, fight for communism throughout my life…and never betray the Party’ – are understood to have secured jobs in British consulates.

[…] The database was originally leaked on Telegram, the encrypted instant messaging app, and passed in September by a Chinese dissident to the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China, which comprises more than 150 legislators around the world who are concerned by the influence and activities of the Chinese government.<b> Detailed analysis by MoS of the material reveals that pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and AstraZeneca – both involved in the development of coronavirus vaccines – employed a total 123 party loyalists</b>

[…] The database was originally leaked on Telegram, the encrypted instant messaging app, and passed in September by a Chinese dissident to the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China (IPAC), which comprises more than 150 legislators around the world who are concerned by the influence and activities of the Chinese government.

Dating from 2016, it includes the names of party members in Shanghai, the largest city in China and its financial hub.
