A dissident Chinese economist filed a White House petition, nearly a third of the way to the 100,000 signatures required to merit the President’s attention, to investigate Twitter for appointing to its board of directors a controversial Artificial Intelligence expert, lifelong deepstater, already fired from Google in disgrace, for her ties to the Chinese military.
Twitter posts with news articles exposing Dr. Fei-Fei Li’s involvement with the Chinese Communist Party already led to the swift removal of many Chinese dissenters from the social media platform since she was appointed to the new job last month.
Those suspended Twitter accounts include that of the dissident economist, himself, who goes by the handle, in Chinese, Cold Financial Eye, and is host of a popular daily Chinese and, now membership-only, macroeconomic podcast. He closed that freemium door in response to his Twitter banning and on fears that YouTube could just as easily deplatform his entire business with one press of their censorship button.
And, most awkwardly, Thursday morning, when investigating his claims of her hidden hand in the new Twitter algorithm alerting the hall monitors to voices challenging the official narrative, the two Twitter accounts @QMN1775 and @QMNEditor used by this online newspaper, were also suspended. No three-day POW sentence to Twitmo or trial by tribunal, just shot dead by firing squad. Oh, the magic of AI!
His White House petition has already garnered 27,748 signatures in three weeks on its way to the 100,000-name threshold to get to the Resolute Desk of U.S. President Donald J. Trump in the Oval Office.
Call for a thorough investigation on Twitter’s violation of freedom of speech
Twitter has suppressed criticisms of CCP and suspended dissent s accounts while pro-Beijing accounts live well. Recently, such censorship is taken to a new level when Dr. FeiFei Li is on Twitter’s board.
On 5.18.2020, not surprisingly, many anti-CCP twitter Users found themself suspended, some permanently.
Based on public report, during 2017-2018, Dr. Li, as Google ’s chief AI scientist, had been in charge of extensive military-technical programs involved with the CCP at helm of Google AI center. After her resignation due to a scandal exposed, Dr. Li remains close ties with top leaders of the CCP.
We hereby suggest a thorough investigation on Twitter’s violation of freedom of speech, and on Dr. FeiFei Li’s collaborations with CCP, a threat to national security.
What’s at stake is revealing infiltration of CCP-sympathizers and agents in the top brass of a platform that’s considered part of the “public square” and subject to the Executive Order on Preventing Online Censorship — a rule at aimed curbing discrimination and censorship by Twitter — enacted two weeks ago.
That Executive Order allows for new regulations so that social media companies that engage in censoring or any political conduct will not be able to keep their liability shield, known as the Section 230 (c) loophole.
The loophole obliges interactive computer service providers to stick by one or the other definitions, but not both — companies are either publishers, legally responsible for published content as editors, or they are social forums that allow totally free discourse among platform users.

“AI and machine learning can have an enormous impact on technology and the people who use it. I look forward to leveraging my experience for Twitter as it harnesses this technology to benefit everyone who uses the service,” she droned in the press release, “to benefit everyone,” indeed.
Dr. Li’s appointment to the board was announced on May 11 — two weeks later, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey poked the bear by adding a fact check label to a Trump tweet about mail-in ballots leading to election fraud (ha!); the next day, the Executive Order was decreed.
Why this woman is so dangerous to the realm of online free speech is because of her expertise, exactly what endeared to the People’s Liberation Army back home.
Dr. Li is known for pioneering research in computer vision and AI, especially for her significant contribution to starting the “Deep Learning era.”
From 2013 to 2018, she served as the inaugural Sequoia Professor, a job endowed by that venture capital firm, at Stanford University’s Computer Science Dept. and Director of the school’s Denning Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence, still listed on their website now as co-director, but nothing happens when you click her name.
This is their pitch for the coming robot world:
“If AI is to serve the collective needs of humanity, it must incorporate an understanding of what moves us — physically, intellectually and emotionally. It is critical that we design machine intelligence that can understand human language, feelings, intentions and behaviors, and interact with nuance and in multiple dimensions.”
In this 2017 doctoral thesis that she advised at Stanford, one of her acolytes, Son Hang, now an Assistant Professor at MIT, with his undergrad degree from Beijing’s Tsinghua University — a school with a high-profile partnership with the Chinese Army to develop AI that she, as a matter of fact, helped direct — describes the context here.
Building effective AI is about training a computer to mimic the reflexes of the human user. It’s all about the algorithms, but the more complex the behavior they want to emulate, the more “computationally intensive” the math, “which makes it difficult to deploy on embedded devices with limited hardware resources and a tight power budget.” Like a Twitter app on a cellphone.
Given finite computing power, the only way to get a better outcome is, rather than upload even more data, train the machine to squint. In other words, if, from far across a big room, you see a four-legged creature with pointy ears, whiskers and a long tail moving low to the ground, it’s probably going to be a cat, so start there.
What Dr. Hang found was that “squinting” — “Deep Compression” in geekspeak — when paired with a black box he built — EIE, the “Efficient Inference Engine” — can reduce the inputs required by 18-49 times, increase computational speed by 13 times and reduce energy consumption by 3,400 times when compared to a standard computer graphics processing (GPU) unit.
“By performing optimizations across the full stack from application through hardware, we improved the efficiency of deep learning through smaller model size, higher prediction accuracy, faster prediction speed, and lower power consumption.”
“Our approach starts by changing the algorithm, using ‘Deep Compression’ that significantly reduces the number of parameters and computation requirements of deep learning models by pruning, trained quantization, and variable length coding. “Deep Compression” can reduce the model size by 18× to 49× without hurting the prediction accuracy.”
“We also discovered that pruning and the sparsity constraint not only applies to model compression but also applies to regularization, and we proposed dense-sparse-dense training (DSD), which can improve the prediction accuracy for a wide range of deep learning models. To efficiently implement ‘Deep Compression’ in hardware, we developed EIE, the ‘Efficient Inference Engine’, a domain-specific hardware accelerator that performs inference directly on the compressed model which significantly saves memory bandwidth.”
“Taking advantage of the compressed model, and being able to deal with the irregular computation pattern efficiently, EIE improves the speed by 13× and energy efficiency by 3,400× over GPU.”
And to continue with the cat meme, go back to a paper Dr. Li authored, with two fellow researchers at CalTech, her first peer reviewed work, published in The Journal of Neuroscience, September 15, 1999, only weeks after she began graduate school.
Now imagine the same cat, but this time with electrodes drilled into her cute furry head.
Animal lovers would be surprised to learn that this notion of experimenting with fluffy felines goes back to a 1962 paper by Drs. Hubel and Wiesel.
In deference to this reporter’s human stewardship of a pair of felines, named by the future Poet Laureate of Denmark as Sodamiss and Tiamiss, little black cat and little tiger cat, I refuse to recount what Dr. Li did in that lab.
But if you have a strong stomach, you can read for yourself how Cat Mengele and her friends describe their “methods,” in the left column, below.
Sufficed to say, her supplies included sodium pentothal — “Truth Serum” used by gangsters since the time of Al Capone to get torture subjects in the mood to spill the beans — a wire harness frame developed in 1908, a tracheotomy, a brain drill, contact lenses and glue to keep those tender kitty eyes from moving. All of it okay-ed by the university, of course.
Eight movies were played eight times to establish the base line. The experiment thne was to measure a kitty brain’s ability to make out the image when it was clear and then as it becomes more pixelated, ie. harder to discern, to basically see how blurry it could get — how much they’d have to squint — before the beasts were unable to recognize the image.
Figure b, on the right, was the test.
What does it all mean for Twitter, 20 years later?
What Dr. Li and her ilk of scientists know about “computer vision” is the secret sauce to how you play on that little app we call the blue bird.
Power users certainly recognize how fast our brains work in reading those headlines, as we thumb down, the speed at which we can process the images sliding by, and how much absorb.
And what seems so devious to everyone commenting lately — how is it that, in the instant you’ve read something, the information has gone from your eyes to your brain, the neural process that tells you this is new, hot, newsworthy, evidence against the Cabal, for sure, just as your brain sends the signal to scrolling and double tap, that screen disappears and can’t be found again.
Scroll up, scroll down, that precious tweet, that morsel of true information, is totally gone, plus there’s never enough recall in our tiny heads to remember who posted or exactly the phrasing of the headline, so it even becomes unsearchable when you try.
You used their machine, you found something important to you, and just as you alert the machine that you want to know more, the machine takes it away.
Lost in the fog of war, beautiful ideas drowned in the information stream forever.
In his blog Technocracy, economist Patrick Wood rails against these Deep State nerds.
Wood’s blog takes its name from his 2014 book, Technocracy Rising: “The dark horse of the New World Order is not Communism, Socialism or Fascism. It is Technocracy.”
A reader on Amazon gives a great review and provides the plot in a paragraph:
The horse is a Trojan horse because it is hidden in plain sight. The attack is embedded within environmentalism, within green technology, within fighting pollution and world hunger, within smart grid management, and more [including AI — QMN editors.] In other words, within ideas that sound so good, people surely will not resist them or contend with them. And that of course, is the plan. It is a good plan, and by good I do not mean beneficial. It is devious. By good, I mean effective.
The book jacket blurb:
With meticulous detail and an abundance of original research, Patrick M. Wood uses Technocracy Rising to connect the dots of modern globalization in a way that has never been seen before so that the reader can clearly understand the globalization plan, its perpetrators and its intended endgame.
In the heat of the Great Depression during the 1930s, prominent scientists and engineers proposed a utopian energy-based economic system called Technocracy that would be run by those same scientists and engineers instead of elected politicians. Although this radical movement lost momentum by 1940, it regained status when it was conceptually adopted by the elitist Trilateral Commission (co-founded by Zbigniew Brzezinski and David Rockefeller) in 1973 to be become its so-called “New International Economic Order.”
In the ensuing 41 years, the modern expression of Technocracy and the New International Economic Order is clearly seen in global programs such as Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, Green Economy, Councils of Governments, Smart Growth, Smart Grid, Total Awareness surveillance initiatives and more.
Wood contends that the only logical outcome of Technocracy is Scientific Dictatorship, as already seen in dystopian literature such as Brave New World by Aldous Huxley (1932) and Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell (1948), both of whom looked straight into the face of Technocracy when it was still in its infancy.
In an early review on Amazon, Dr. Sanford Aranoff, a physicist Phd at Rutgers University who passed away in 2015, wrote that he saw the inside of the beast while working on nuclear technology inside Bell Labs, testifying to the truth of Wood’s argument, posted some choice paragraphs from the book to convince others to venture within.
Technocrats believed that they could engineer society by applying the Scientific Method in the same manner as it was applied to physical science.
The New School. By 1921, Veblen was ready to try again and did so with the release of his Engineers and the Price System that took all the blinders off. He plainly stated, If the country’s productive industry were competently organized as a systematic whole, and were then managed by competent technicians with an eye single to maximum production of goods and services instead of, as now, being manhandled by ignorant business men with an eye single to maximum profits; the resulting output of goods and services would doubtless exceed the current output by several hundred percent.
Simply put, they believed that the actions of human beings, both direct and indirect, were the root cause of societal problems and that they were directly related to biology, climate and natural resources. The absence of enlightened scientific management would doom mankind to certain destruction.
Haass’ statement “there is precious little thinking available” underscores a repeatedly used elitist technique. That is, first decide what you want to do, and second, assign a flock of academics to justify your intended actions. This is the crux of academic funding by NGOs such as the Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation, Carnegie-Mellon, etc. After the justification process is complete, the same elites that suggested it in the first place allow themselves to be drawn in as if they had no other logical choice but to play along with the “sound thinking” of the experts.
Every day Wood links to the best articles on the broader subject on his blog.
On Friday, he linked to John Carney, a recent “Heard on the Street” Wall Street Journal columnist, now fighting those same corporatist hags that he used to swap M&A gossip with to uphold Rupert Murdoch’s official NWO narrative, at one-time special assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations at the Pentagon and White House Chief Strategist Steven K. Bannon’s old battle station, Breitbart.
By Carney’s math, America’s corporate machine had now leapfrogged the old non-profit trusts, the Rockefeller, Ford and Carnegie Foundation, to give to their modern incarnation and its offshoots. He said $564 million in the past week or so was donated by America’s blue chips to the Black Lives Matter Foundation and its BLM cut-outs and friends.
If this gives you déjà vu of last year’s spectacle of every one of those same corporations changing their corporate logos to the rainbow and making mega donations to commemorate the 50th anniversary of a bloody riots against cops at the Stonewall Inn gay bar in New York, yes, it’s the same method of operation.
The Gay Pride Parade last year went beyond its incarnation as a solidarity march to a corporate festooned leather bar, transvestite, naked ass-chaps moment of millions on the warpath, and all of its tawdriness presented as just the new normal to our kids on TV.
Or as smiling Baphomet at a kids reading room or at your local Carnegie-funded city library (where the real books never existed even once) — the Associated Press — “the oldest and largest of those in the United States and long the largest and one of the preeminent news agencies in the world” — brought you the story.
This is how the NWO works: bribe the universities via research grants to manufacture academic “consensus”, which, in turn, is used the rationale to have the biggest companies to accept a new status quo, which gets repeated ad nauseum via the American media, with its 15,500 news outlets owned by six corporations in on the ruse, onto the TV and into the social media streams on your cell phone.
And, from there, injected directly into your eyes, where, thanks to the mad science of Fei-Fei Lis AI, proven in the nightmares of kitties everywhere, they know exactly how to lodge their ideas permanently into your brain to control your thoughts, emotions and waking life.
Last week, in his own post against our social media tyrants enabling that last mile of transmission, especially via that ‘public square’, Twitter, Wood cried his sound of fury:
As their own actions demonstrate, social media companies are coming together to essentially overthrow the government of the United States. While it’s difficult to prove back-room collusion, it is not difficult to see these companies forming a like-minded mob that moves in unison toward some common objective.
In this case, the objective is to destroy a presidency, a person and a system of government that has served America for over 200 years.
Attacks are coming from all directions, large and small. Twitter, Google, YouTube and Facebook’s antics of censorship are well known. Now, lesser- known platforms are joining in, like Yelp, WordPress.com and Neighborside.
Censoring the speech and thoughts of citizens is a direct attack on the First Amendment in specific and the U.S. Constitution in general. This is designed to overthrow the Constitution.
The government, along with its elected officials, has the explicit and necessary right to communicate with the American people. Any private organization that interferes with this right to diminish, discredit or prevent unfettered communication is making a direct attack on the ability of the government to function properly.
It has also become clear that Big Social Media’s censorship is very selective. While censorship of government officials is being executed, there is no censorship of violent forces who are dedicated to the violent overthrow of the government.
Lastly, the personal attacks seen against a duly-elected President are serving only to overthrow him. Some such attacks are obvious and some are very subtle. For instance, if you type the word”racist” into Twitter’s search bar, the first entry that comes up is “Donald J. Trump.”
Here’s his conclusion:
Technocracy by any other name…
I have communicated frequently in speech and writing that Technocracy is executing its coup d’etat to dominate the entire planet. America is the last nation on earth whose people naturally reject the Technocrat ideology. Social media companies are run mostly by Technocrats who only understand that the current status quo in America must be permanently destroyed. As such, the social media industry has risen to become the number one opponent of America and the American way of life.
But it’s not just what we already knew about our social media overlords, it is the how they’re doing it, and Wood is one of the very few reaching deep to call out the emerging technology of AI.
Lately, he’s posting lots of articles on the subject being published, not coincidentally, by The Epoch Times.
This New York-based newspaper was created by a Buddhist-Taoist movement called Falun Gong that the Chinese Communist Party has been on a 30-year crusade to destroy as a threat to the regime. After 70 million Chinese had joined its ranks, Falun Gong was outlawed in 1999 for being “engaged in illegal activities, advocating superstition and spreading fallacies, hoodwinking people, inciting and creating disturbances, and jeopardizing social stability.”
We see them on our streets by the dozens, wearing yellow, handing out flyers, asking people to mediate. We’ve been indoctrinated by our mockingbird media which calls Falun Gong “a cult,” but the terrifying real news is that tens of thousands of its members in China have been disappeared into gulags and then murdered, dismembered and their body parts sold in Chinese government-sponsored organ trafficking.
Along their peaceful path for liberty, this time last year, 5,000 of these faithful took the Governors Island ferry to the Army’s old star-shaped Fort Jay in New York Harbor to make this statement. This reporter happened to be on that very same ferry, otherwise we’d never believe it happened and we certainly didn’t see this in NWO Murdoch’s New York Post!
And that may look like a Nazi swastika to you, dear indoctrinated reader, but it’s actually an old Buddhist symbol co-opted by the 20th century’s most infamous fascists.
According to ReligionFacts.com: “In China and Japan, the Buddhist swastika was seen as a symbol of plurality, eternity, abundance, prosperity and long life.”
So you can see why China’s CCP regime, which is totalitarian — entirely ruled from the top — fascist — where the state’s primacy is superior to the people’s will — socialist — because they tell you that what’s good for the state is good for everyone — communist — because their socialism comes at the end of a gulag or gun — ain’t havin’ none of it.
This article posted by Wood was written by Alex Newman, as a spin-off for his personal blog based on a dozen-plus-part series on public education that he published as columns in The Epoch Times.
Newman is also the lead writer for the John Birch Society’s newsletter The New American, “that freedom shall not perish.” If you don’t see the connection, it’s because JBS, like Falun Gong, has also been pushed to the outskirts of political debate, slandered by RINO of the day William F. Buckley, Jr. in his National Review as your reactionary-right, fringe, anti-Semitic, worthy of ignoring, political movement for their thought crime of going so hard against the “Communists” under their technocatic guise of the NWO, publishing in 1972, the best selling non-fiction book of the year, None Dare Call it a Conspiracy, that laid bare the very same threat we freedom lovers are talking about 50 years later.
And whose daddy was one of the few bold-name businessmen funding the JBS?
The Donald’s Fred Trump.
The article Wood picked up from Newman about educations gives a flavor where the Chinese are going with AI — straight into our kids’ heads. Just like that poor cat.
Ultra-creepy technology that George Orwell could not have imagined in his most terrifying nightmares is invading government-school classrooms — and children’s minds — all around the world. While many of the Big Brother innovations are coming out of Communist China, they are making their way into American schools quickly as well. Parents, beware.
In a video report by the Wall Street Journal on artificial intelligence in Communist Chinese schools, children in a communist indoctrination camp masquerading as a school are shown wearing bands around their heads. The devices feature colored lights on the front that indicate for the “teacher” whether the child is paying attention or distracted. Red is for “deeply focused.” Blue means “distracted.” White is offline.
The technology is supposedly aimed at helping the indoctrination facilitators (misleadingly described as “teachers” by the WSJ and the regime) and authorities determine whether the young victim is concentrating and absorbing the regime’s propaganda. Basically, the headbands use what are known as “electroencephalography” (EEG) sensors to monitor the brain activity and signals of the user. The data is then collected and shared with parents and government agents.
As this writer reported in February for The Epoch Times, a U.S. company called BrainCo developed a headband that purports to measure and collects data on students’ “brainwaves.” The company is funded in part by the mass-murdering regime in Beijing via its state-run “companies,” with the devices being deployed against thousands of Chinese children at schools.
It is now irrefutable: Government schools are becoming futuristic dystopian prisons aimed at indoctrinating, grooming, and tracking every child from birth while molding them into useful and compliant cogs in the globalist-technocratic machine. Parents must protect their young ones from this insanity by removing them as quickly as possible.
The alternative will be disaster.
Bad enough all of these must-be-exaggerated “what it could mean for the kids” application stories, could you imagine the cold reality of this AI technology in the murderous hands of that rapacious military force known as the CCP’s People’s Liberation Army?
For a moment, never mind her role now at Twitter, or the havoc Fei-Fei wreaked against We the People while working for a year as a Vice President for Google — and not just what she thought about it in Mountain View, that we only know about because of a short-lived and long forgotten leaked email scandal that cost her that plum VP job there in 2018, but the real backstory, reported in full a year later by our liberty loving comrades at The Epoch Times, because of which we are able to tell you, dear Patriots, how Fei-Fei Li most certainly provided AI technology to Red China.
Her unraveling came at the hands of Google employees furious not about China, but about how Google would dare help the U.S. Air Force, when they leaked a 2017 email, in which Dr. Li, as chief scientist for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at Google Cloud, wrote:
“It’s so exciting that we’re close to getting MAVEN! That would be a great win. I think we should do a good PR on the story of DoD collaborating with GCP [Google] from a vanilla cloud technology angle (storage, network, security, etc.), but avoid at ALL COSTS any mention or implication of AI.”
“This is red meat to the media to find all ways to damage Google. You probably heard Elon Musk and his comment about AI causing WW3.”
“Google is already battling with privacy issues when it comes to AI and data; I don’t know what would happen if the media starts picking up a theme that Google is secretly building AI weapons or AI technologies to enable weapons for the Defense industry.”
Project Maven was a $15 million contract that could have grown to $250 million to backstop USAF Lt. Gen. Jack Shanahan, director for defense intelligence for warfighter support and leader of the Pentagon’s AI team, put out the bid for an American tech company to figure out how to use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to sift through its huge databases of images to, basically, help us find the bad guys. Google’s pitch was to help sort the images and then ultimately recreate a version of Google Earth where all the categorized data for any pinpoint on the map in the world would be a screen tap away for America’s warriors in the battlefield.
In the end, her emails were leaked to the press, a dozen Googlers resigned in disgust and the company said they wouldn’t work for U.S. military any more.
It’s also worth noting that beyond the existence project, itself, and which she thought so “exciting,” Fei-Fei’s big worry was the knock AI would get in the press if people found out.
So how mad do you think we’d be if we found out what she did for Beijing at Tsinghua University? Well, We the People, not we the mainstream media who ignored the story.
The context of a university, itself, also means more that you’d think, even if you studied among Deep State Ivy Leaguers here, because of Article 7 of the Chinese National Intelligence Law, decreed in 2017.
That rule from the state requires that the nearly 400,000 Chinese students today in American universities must “support, assist and cooperate with state intelligence work according to law.”
These kids aren’t like us, studying underwater basket weaving and playing frisbee on the quad, no, they’re still doing it for Chairman Mao.
In July 2017, China’s State Council, a cabinet-like agency, published a detailed plan for China to become a “world leader” in AI by 2030. The plan aims to build a domestic AI industry worth $150 billion, The Epoch Times reported.
The newspaper cited local press reports about a military AI lab at Tsinghua University in Spring 2017 called “High-End Military Intelligence lab.”
Google opened its AI research center in Beijing in December 2017. At its launch event, Chinese media portal Sina reported that Fei-Fei told the audience that she started pushing the idea to set up an AI center in China with the leadership of Google and Google Cloud right after she joined the company in January 2017.
Chinese news portal sohu.com quoted her as saying:
“China is like a sleeping giant. When she wakes, she will tremble the world.”
And then she added that China had already awakened in the AI world.
In 2018, at Tsinghua University opened another military AI lab, not surreptitiously named “Military Intelligent High-End Lab,” that would be “guided by military needs” to help grow China into an advanced AI country. The project, according to another local report, was a result of a direct request from the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee.
In June 2018, three months before Fei-Fei’s colleagues shamed her out of her job at Google, Beijing awarded Tsinghua University a $15 million military contract to help develop it’s AI, and, a few weeks later, Google partnered with them to create an AI research body, the Tsinghua University Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
Announced at a Google–Tsinghua symposium, Jeff Dean, head of Google AI, Fei-Fei’s boss, was also named to the school’s computer science advisory committee.
Of course, also in attendance were Fei-Fei, then-vice president of Google Cloud and head of Google Cloud AI, and Jia Li, then-head of R&D at Google Cloud AI, head of the company’s Beijing AI center, the former head of research for Snap, as in Snapchat, and one of her former students at Stanford. The pair were hired together by Google in November, 2016.
A family photo of the event published by the university also showed Hua Jianmin, former vice chairman of China’s National People’s Congress, the regime’s rubber-stamp legislature, was there, too.
Of course, Google denied everything.
This was at the same time those unhappy Googlers also leaked information about the company secretly developing censored app for the Chinese market as part of a project dubbed “Dragonfly.” Days after the Google–Tsinghua symposium, the company publicly confirmed that it had ended the project.
Meanwhile, Trump Silicon Valley-ally Peter Thiel and technology surrogate, in a speech at the National Conservatism Conference, and later on Fox, said it was all too little, too late, and Google was clearly aiding the enemy; it was “seemingly treasonous.”
“Number one, how many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI?” Thiel said, referring to Google’s DeepMind artificial intelligence project, which he said should be considered a potential military weapon.
“Number two, does Google’s senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?” Thiel said, according to Axios.
“Number three, is it because they consider themselves to be so thoroughly infiltrated that they have engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the U.S. military … because they are making the sort of bad, short-term rationalistic [decision] that if the technology doesn’t go out the front door, it gets stolen out the back door anyway?”
Thiel then appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to say people almost never talk about the dual use of artificial intelligence.
“If it’s real, if this is a real thing, it obviously can also be used by the military, it’ll be weaponized in all sorts of ways, and it’s an important national security question as to who has it,” he said.
“There’s this very peculiar background where Google is working with the Chinese on communist government and not with the U.S. military; so the Project Maven decision was a decision not to work with AI with the U.S. military—but they’re working with the communist Chinese.”
“If you go around broadcasting that you’re building a Manhattan Project for AI, I would think this naturally would draw the attention of foreign intelligence agencies,” he said.
“I think the Chinese are confident enough, the Ministry of State Security is likely to have infiltrated Google, and then I think the Google management has sort of a decision of either letting the software go out the front door, or figuring it will get stolen anyway and go out the back door.”
“And then I think, of course, there’s probably, you know, a broad base of Google employees that are ideologically super left-wing sort of woke, and think that China is better than the U.S. Or that the U.S. is worse than China. It’s always—it’s more anti-American than anything.”
Joe Londsdale, who founded big data firm Palantir with Thiel, echoed his comments to CNBC.
“Google is not a patriotic company,” he said. “Everyone in the Valley knows that the Chinese government is very involved. It’s something we don’t talk about a lot. It was very courageous of him to talk about it.”
In response to the accusations on CNBC, a Google, of course, denied it: “As we have said before, we do not work with the Chinese military.”
The President responded to it all, via tweet. And those power Twitter users, who know he actually chooses his words very carefully, saw that he specifically used the word “treason.”
“Billionaire Tech Investor Peter Thiel believes Google should be investigated for treason. He accuses Google of working with the Chinese Government.” @foxandfriends A great and brilliant guy who knows this subject better than anyone! The Trump Administration will take a look!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 16, 2019
Ten days later, the President said he had looked into it, after Treasury Secretary Mnuchin announced they didn’t find any hard evidence, but then POTUS doubled-down, and said he would look again — triple exclamation points, he did not seem happy.
There may or may not be National Security concerns with regard to Google and their relationship with China. If there is a problem, we will find out about it. I sincerely hope there is not!!!

The White House petition from the economist has barely been mentioned by American blogs, but was covered in depth by Radio Free Asia, in Chinese.
He is a marked man at home and if you read his blog you’d see why.
In one of the free articles available on his his Chinese-language website, with annual membership to his daily reports now set at $99, he lays bare the great lie that China is flush with foreign reserves.
Indeed, with his ‘cold financial eye’, the economist breaks down the double-counting and books-cooking to give an accurate accounting of China’s true wealth, which he describes as actually having been fully expatriated by its kleptocracy and, in what we would call “dollar diplomacy,” in their case the term might be the “remimbi roulette”, the billions spent for colonialism in Africa, in what’s none other than the modern enslavement of entire peoples.
Just a cold eye and everyone’s calculations, the net assets of China’s international investment have been minus 180 billion US dollars, plus the current bank and state-owned bonds of minus 1.5 trillion US dollars, China’s international net assets are actually negative and have reached a negative value of 1.68 trillion, such a horrible situation.
This means that even if China’s three trillion foreign reserves are all used to pay down debt, it will no longer be enough. China will still owe nearly $2 trillion in foreign debt. In the 40 years since the reform and opening up, people all over the country have eaten vegetarian food, worked around the clock, and saved 3 trillion of foreign exchange reserves, but actually not enough to pay off their debts. Instead, they owe about 2 trillion.
The other part was donated to AIA in the form of large currency, such as last year’s nominal loan, actually 60 billion to Africa, and 50 billion to Venezuela, which remained on the balance sheet. The asset side is actually bad debts and dead debts. The little family that the Chinese people have left for 40 years has been defeated!
Once the surplus of China’s foreign trade stops, and once the flight of foreign capital accelerates, China’s foreign reserves will also have a watershed from positive to negative! If the foreign reserves are gone, basic materials such as grain and oil will be in short supply, and the era of sorrow and urgency for the Chinese will officially begin!
In this era of closed minds and mass censorship, no wonder the bad guys are working so hard to keep the truthtellers quiet.
In today’s world of the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone for ANTIFA communist neo-fascists in Seattle; the sudden, national campaign to rid the country of its policemen, beginning with the Minneapolis City Council defunding an entire police department; the pallets of bricks being strategically bought, delivered and located in arm’s reach of violent rioters, mirroring a version of the instructions those paid goons received in Baltimore, 2015, when copies of that documentation divulged their secret paymaster, the Friends of Democracy PAC, let’s bring this one home.
Who founded and funded that PAC was the Soros brood, dad George, brothers Jonathan and Alex and sister Andrea. The only member missing there was George’s older brother and long-time business partner, Paul, who ran Soros Associates, which today operates giant port facilities in 91 countries around the world, died in 2013, but here he is.
In 1999, in those tender months from her Spring graduation from undergrad at Princeton to attaching my dear Tiamiss to that South Park “cheesing” harness, at CalTech, publishing her first paper in the Autumn, young Fei-Fei received $90,000 from his foundation and attended two annual conferences to mingle with the other selected few.
In 2017, for example, the Fellowship received 1,766 applications and awarded cash to just 30 students. That year, at the start of her Google misadventure, she told its alumni magazine:
“The impact of technology has many facades. It can help to increase productivity, and reduce inefficiency and error, and improve quality of life, but it also changes the landscape of the economy, the labor market, and the environment. We need to be very thoughtful and invest in these fundamental technologies and opportunities, so that’s what brought me to Google Cloud.”
“As a kid, I did a lot of reading in science, the universe, space, and the origin of life, so I was a scientist at heart, even in China. I think there is something beautiful about the pursuit of truth. The fundamental philosophy of being a scientist is that you’re going after the pursuit of truth: What are the fundamental laws of the universe? What are the fundamental laws of life? What are the fundamental laws of intelligence?”
Her whole life she was trying to get into our brains.
President Trump, remove this woman. Dear reader, sign that petition. Save our cats, save our kids, save our brains, save our souls. Stop that ten-crowned beast called AI.
