    Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL) claimed that the COVID-19 pandemic was a manmade “bioweapon” created by the Communist Chinese during a Saturday appearance on the Fox News Channel. Brooks, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama, told FNC’s “Fox News Live” that it would be something we would have to “learn to deal with” despite a reluctance to discuss the pandemic by Democrat leaders. “[T]he bottom line is this — and people need to understand this: This is a bioweapon that was created in the Wuhan bioweapons lab of the Communist Chinese Party, in conjunction with the People’s Liberation Army,” he said. “It’s going to be around for a long time, and we have to learn to deal with it. We cannot shut ourselves up, which is one of the policies that unfortunately has done so much damage to our economy at the assistance of Democratic governors, mayors, and to some degree, President Joe Biden. That isn’t going to work.” FNC’s Jacqui Heinrich questioned the merits of Brooks’ claim, adding there was “not any proof” of the claim it was a...
    Ben Domenech outed U.S. "cultural, business, and academic elites" whom he said the Communist Party of China "bought and paid for a thousand times over" Wednesday on "Fox News Primetime." "The CCP is actively engaged in an effort to undermine our American way of life," Domenech said. " … But China is doing this with the active cooperation of our fellow Americans. Their partners in this project aren't just malevolent spies manipulating doofus California congressmen. It's none other than our own cultural, business and academic elites who[m] they have bought and paid for a thousand times over. Our elites now operate hand-in-glove with the Communist Party of China, doing its bidding even when it harms the freedoms and rights that are the birthright of every American." The Fox News host called out actor John Cena, National Basketball Association player LeBron James, Apple, Amazon, Intel, American universities, the Walt Disney Company, and the Biden administration, saying they sold out to the CCP.

    The Economist warned Americans about United States democracy being under threat in their cover for the January 2022 issue. The latest cover for the news publication featured the headline, "Walking away: The Republican Party and democracy," which accuses Republicans of undermining democracy in the United States.  "Americans fear that their democracy is under threat. Renewal will not happen for as long as Donald Trump remains the Republican leader. But the party can change," The Economist wrote in a tweet promoting the article.  In one of their emailed newsletters, the publication continued to promote the story with the sponsorship of Huawei. Huawei is Chinese tech giant that has been linked to mass surveillance campaigns by the Chinese Communist Party. FACEBOOK FACT-CHECKING GROUP ADMITS IT WRONGLY FLAGGED ARTICLE CRITICIZING STUDY ON MASKS IN SCHOOLS  Washington Free Beacon reporter Matthew Foldi was first to note Huawei's sponsorship of The Economist's newsletter.  "Insane for @TheEconomist to lecture Americans about democracy in an email sponsored by the Chinese Communist Party’s @Huawei spy technology," Foldi tweeted. "China uses @Huaweias a key part of its brutal Uyghur repression."...
    Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., told "Fox News Primetime" Monday that the Biden administration should be putting more pressure on the Chinese Communist Party.  CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP TOM COTTON: It's an important trend in China. Remember, China is a Communist country, and they always put the party above the government and certainly ahead of the public interest. We should do everything we can to take advantage of these trends by reducing our reliance on China for things like advanced technology, but also life sustaining drugs, or life sustaining medical devices, or medical equipment.  We should not continue to have such a huge and entangled trade relationship with China. We should bring more that manufacturing back home. We should rely more on our allies. We should do everything we can to heighten these tensions inside of China to put more pressure on the Communist Party there.  …I would work with anyone who's willing to reduce our reliance on China for critical technologies or life sustaining source material. I don't think that Joe Biden is going to do...
    Columnist Jon Gabriel asked, "Why do you include Taiwan as part of China? Taiwan is an independent country." Writer Ian Miles Cheong tweeted, "The NFL caves to communist China and falsely lists Taiwan as a part of Chinese territory." Republican political operative Logan Dobson reacted by saying, "Just the @NFL erasing the independent nation of Taiwan to suck up to genocidal Chinese Communists for money." Author Dan K. Eberhart pointed out, "The @NFL and @NBA can virtue signal about human rights all they want. Your words mean absolutely nothing if you're too cowardly to put human rights above making money in China's market." The Economist's China affairs editor Gady Epstein quipped, "NFL seems to have decided which team Taiwan is on." Sarah McLaughlin – director of targeted advocacy at the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education – responded by saying, "I would love to hear how the NFL is planning (if at all) to deal with the free speech challenges that will inevitably develop here. Their initial response to these issues in the U.S. was bad enough; what can we...
    Hong Kong (CNN Business)Weibo, China's answer to Twitter, has long been a prime target for stringent online censorship thanks to its broad audience base and ability to help influence public opinion.But in the eyes of the Chinese Communist Party, it is not censoring enough — and needs to pay a price, literally.On Tuesday, Weibo was fined $470,000 for repeatedly disseminating "illegal information" in violation of the country's laws and regulations, including its cybersecurity law and a law on the protection of minors.That's far from the first time Weibo has been slapped with such a hefty fine by the government. Over the first 11 months of this year, the social media giant was fined 44 times for transgressions that cost it a total of $2.2 million, according to the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), a government agency under the control of the party. Weibo said in a statement it "sincerely accepts criticism" from the regulator and has established a working group in response to the penalty.Read MoreChinese social media giant Weibo fined by regulator for publishing illegal informationThe latest punishment on...
    Hong Kong (CNN)As some 100 countries prepare to convene virtually for US President Joe Biden's Summit for Democracy, China is busy trying to convince the world that it's also a democracy -- and its version is superior to the United States.Beijing, which was not invited to the virtual gathering on Thursday and Friday, has reacted with scorn and derision, denouncing the summit as an "exercise in hypocrisy" to promote US hegemony. Further infuriating Beijing, Taiwan, a self-ruling democracy it claims as part of its territory, was invited, as was Nathan Law, a pro-democracy activist and former legislator from Hong Kong now exiled in London.In response, China has ramped up propaganda efforts in a bid to promote an alternative model of "democracy," twisting the definition of the term to fit its own authoritarian one-party system."This is a preemptive strike against Biden's Democracy Summit," said Jean-Pierre Cabestan, an expert on Chinese politics at Hong Kong Baptist University.

    Chinese state media has declared victory in a war of words with JP Morgan's CEO after he issued two grovelling apologies for joking that his bank would outlast the Communist Party.  The Global Times, a mouthpiece for the state, gloated over the apologies - chastising CEO Jamie Dimon for forgetting not to bite the hand that feeds. The paper also warned US companies to 'educate' themselves and avoid making 'ignorant' remarks as they become reliant on Chinese markets for their success. 'The Chinese market is closely related to the success of US companies, and the CPC is the backbone of China's success. Don't they see the link between the two?,' the column said. Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan, made two grovelling apologies after a joke he made about his bank outlasting China's Communist Party made the news   It later added: 'A Chinese saying goes, after one finishes eating meat in the bowl, they start cursing people who give them the food.  'We believe a CEO and billionaire businessman should have understood this.

              more   Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) penned a letter this week to YouTube after it was revealed the social media giant demonetized a news video discussing a story how former Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli allegedly sexually assaulted Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai. An episode of Breaking Points, a YouTube show hosted by Saagar Enjeti and Krystal Ball, was demonetized after it ran a segment discussing the disappearance of the tennis star, the Federalist reports. “Despite the CCP’s history of human rights violations and ‘disappearing’ its own citizens, YouTube chose to demonetize the video. According to YouTube, ‘it isn’t suitable for all advertisers,’ and ‘will continue to run limited or no ads,” Blackburn said in her letter addressed to Susan Wojcicki, CEO of Youtube. According to a press release sent out by Blackburn’s office, YouTube, which has publicly promoted the MeToo movement, is helping Beijing rewrite history. “It apparently is not enough that YouTube takes steps to censor American citizens. Now it is working with the CCP to promote its dangerous viewpoints around the world,” Blackburn said. “I understand...
    Critics of the communist Chinese government have argued that opening up business opportunities in China has allowed an antagonistic regime to use its financial power to take advantage of American companies. Some have stood up to the communist regime despite the risk of losing massive financial gain. Among the more laudable efforts are those of the World Tennis Association, which has demanded China answer for the disappearance of a professional tennis player who had accused a former Chinese official of sexual assault. "We're definitely willing to pull our business and deal with all the complications that come with it," said World Tennis Association president Steve Simon. "Because this is certainly, this is bigger than the business," he concluded. "Women need to be respected and not censored." Others, like NBA basketball star Lebron James, have been publicly lambasted for appeasing China while calling on Americans to join anti-racism political movements at home.

    Hong Kong (CNN Business)JPMorgan has made significant inroads in China over the last couple of years. Now the bank's top boss is cracking jokes about whether his firm can outlast the country's powerful political machine. Speaking at an event in Boston on Tuesday, JPMorgan (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon said he "made a joke" during a recent trip to Hong Kong, referencing the ruling Chinese Communist Party's 100th anniversary."The Communist Party is celebrating its 100th year. So is JPMorgan," he said, referring to the bank's recent celebration of a century of operation in China. "And I'll make a bet we last longer." "I can't say that in China," Dimon added with a chuckle. "They probably are listening anyway."The remarks are a rare display of candor from a senior business executive about the leadership of the world's second largest economy, which has been cracking down on private enterprise over the past year.

    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) stated that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is acting as the Chinese Communist Party’s “frontman” in the case of Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai and argued that the U.S. should totally boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics because we can’t guarantee the safety of American competitors from “ubiquitous electronic surveillance, to DNA harvesting, or simply hostage-taking.” Cotton said, [relevant remarks begin around 2:30] “The IOC is acting as nothing but a frontman for the Chinese Communist Party. Last week, I called for a complete and total boycott of these games, partly because the Biden administration cannot assure the safety of our athletes and their coaches and staff from ubiquitous electronic surveillance, to DNA harvesting, or simply hostage-taking. If the Chinese Communist Party will take its own athletes and disappear them and then march them out in hostage videos like this, what will they do to our athletes? This is a regime that is committing genocide against its own people. We should not be doing anything to celebrate or...
    Boston Celtics backup center Enes Kanter continues to ignore NBA boundaries by speaking out against China and their reprehensible human rights violations. Last month, Kanter declared support for “free Tibet” and bashed Chinese president Xi Jinping as a “brutal dictator.” One week later, Kanter ranted against one of the NBA’s biggest sponsors in Nike, for profiting off Chinese slave labor. The 29-year-old center also called for a boycott of next February’s Winter Olympics in Beijing. And Tuesday morning, Kanter continued his crusade against the “cultish Chinese communist party,” by blasting their treatment of Hong Kong.

    Consumers’ Research, an educational nonprofit dedicated to consumer information, launched a new campaign targeting “woke finance” to expose BlackRock, an American-based money management firm with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party. The nonprofit calls attention to BlackRock’s vast hypocrisy and anti-American, pro-China tendencies as they continue their woke finance façade and attempts to tell businesses how to operate and Americans how to live. Consumers’ Research is releasing a new ad to begin their multimillion-dollar campaign, titled “Betting on China,” to turn their attention to woke finance. “No amount of woke posturing can hide what BlackRock is really up to. The idea that an American company is taking billions of dollars and using it to bet on China’s success is extremely concerning,” Executive Director of Consumers’ Research Will Hild said in a statement. “We can’t allow this to continue. Funneling Americans’ hard earned retirement savings to China is unsafe from both a national security and financial perspective.” “By putting BlackRock’s shady dealings out in the open for all to see, we’re sending a message that companies won’t get away with taking advantage of hard-working Americans,” Hild further said. “Any...
    Hong Kong/Taipei, Taiwan (CNN)Taiwan's Defense Minister, former general Chiu Kuo-cheng, stood in front of the island's legislature last week and made a dire prediction -- by 2025, China will be able to mount a "full-scale" invasion of Taiwan.The dramatic statement came after China sent its highest number of warplanes yet into the skies above waters southwest of the island. But despite the rhetoric and the military saber-rattling, analysts agree China is unlikely to invade Taiwan anytime soon, with one expert adding the chance of invasion in the next 12 months is "close to zero."Beijing has cast waves of aggression toward the island ever since the former Nationalist government fled there at the end of the Chinese civil war in 1949. In the early 2000s, for instance, experts said Beijing could move to take Taiwan within that decade. Then in 2013, Taiwan's Defense Ministry estimated the Chinese government would have the capability to invade by 2020 -- neither came to pass.Despite Beijing's most recent aerial maneuvers, life goes on as normal in Taiwan's capital, Taipei. The public is largely unconcerned about...
                      by Mckenna Dallmeyer  A Chinese student attending a Canadian university is currently facing repercussions from the Chinese government for his criticism of the regime on Twitter. Experts tell Campus Reform that the same thing has happened in the United States. As the Toronto Star reported last week, the student retweeted three posts while in Canada: “the news that Nobel laureate and Chinese democracy advocate Liu Xiaobo had died, a short satirical video about President Xi Jinping, and a chart on levels of Chinese government corruption.” Months later, he received a call from his father who asked if he posted something about the Chinese government on the internet. “The public security bureau called us twice,” his father, per the Canadian outlet’s reporting. Soon after, the student was contacted by a Chinese police officer via the WeChat social media app. “The police told me the Ministry of Public Security (China’s internal policing department) tracked me by my IP address and knows where I live in Canada. They have evidence the Twitter account belongs to me,” the student told The...
    What else? Then, she made mention of a particularly "disturbing" element of the tech platform's message, which she called "free self-censorship consulting service." In the alert, LinkedIn warned Allen-Ebrahimian that her account would remain disabled in China unless she removed the offending content. But to soften the blow, the company offered to help her make sure her profile is CCP-approved. "We will work with you to minimize the impact and can review your profile's accessibility within China if you update the Summary section of your profile," the platform said.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) argued the Biden administration is “effectively covering up for the Chinese Communist Party” on the origins of COVID-19. Gallagher said, “[T]he 90-day intelligence review from the Biden administration, which came back with nothing. That’s unacceptable. And it’s sad that we can’t get to the bottom of this until we have the cooperation of the Chinese. That is bogus. That is a cop-out. There are a ton of things we can do, and let’s start by subpoenaing Peter Daszak and his entire corrupt organization to get answers. We cannot accept these lies to be the final answer.” He further stated, “[W]here is the accountability from the Chinese Communist Party? Why is this administration effectively covering up for the Chinese Communist Party when it comes to this? Are we so afraid of offending their delicate sensibilities that we’re not going to demand answers after they’ve perpetrated one of the biggest coverups in the history of geopolitical relations? This is absolutely unacceptable. And we have to get to...
    Hong Kong (CNN)The crackdown came quickly and sweepingly, wiping out some of China's biggest stars and fans clubs in a matter of days.Over the past week, China's entertainment industry has become the latest to fall into the crosshairs of the ruling Communist Party, following Xi Jinping's clampdown on political dissent, social activism, ideological liberalism and private businesses.Zhao Wei, one of China's most prominent actors, saw her presence mostly scrubbed from the country's internet overnight. Her fan page on Weibo, China's heavily censored version of Twitter, was shut down. Movies and television shows she starred in -- some going as far back as two decades ago -- were taken off streaming platforms, with her name also removed from the cast lists.Broadcasters and video sites also removed the works of Zheng Shuang, another top Chinese actor who was fined $46 million for tax evasion on Friday. Zheng had been caught in a surrogacy scandal earlier this year, after her estranged partner accused her of abandoning their two babies in the United States.The erasure came as a list of "misbehaving celebrities" reportedly blacklisted...
                        FRANKLIN, Tennessee – Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he put the nation’s state governors on notice, in an exclusive interview with The Star News Network on Saturday, because they are a real point of influence for the Chinese Communist Party. The reason, Pompeo explained, is because it is where so much of the commercial activity takes place. The Star News asked, “On the topic of China, still, Secretary, in February 2020, you addressed the National Governors Association and you gave them an overview of the many ways that China is competing in all 50 states and you pointed out that the governors were rated by a Chinese think tank as to friendly and so forth, which was shocking probably for them and for a lot of Americans.  How did the governors respond, particularly those who were named as friendly – like our governor here in Tennessee, Bill Lee – to the news that you broke to them and did you see changes in the way that...

                        LOUDON, Tennessee – Natalie Winters, senior reporter at The National Pulse, warned a group of at least 300 attendees at a Tellico Village Conservative Club meeting Wednesday of an “axis of evil” between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and American elites. Winters, while her title may be senior reporter, is anything but. Rather, she is a very articulate, engaging, and credible 20-year old University of Chicago student originally from Santa Monica, California. In addition to reporting for Raheem Kassam’s The National Pulse, Winters is also a contributor to Steve Bannon’s War Room. As Rick Dramm, leader of the Tellico Village Conservative Club that hosted the event, shared everyone’s surprise in introducing his featured speaker Winters that given her background, “she turned out to be a conservative.” For more than 40 minutes, Winters, obviously immersed and knowledgeable of the topic, delivered a high-speed download of the deep connections that numerous organizations – often with innocuous or even friendly-sounding names – have with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and America’s...

In recent years, as she embarked on the long journey to become a member of the Chinese Communist Party, she had balanced hours of lectures on party ideology with course work for her biology degree, and spent 30 minutes a day on a nationalist app reading articles and watching videos.

    Hong Kong (CNN)In January 2013, months after taking the helm of China's ruling party, Xi Jinping gathered the country's top politicians and asked them why the Communist Party of the Soviet Union had collapsed.Xi, of course, already had the answer."It completely denied Soviet history, the history of the Soviet Communist Party, denied Lenin, denied Stalin," he said. "Party organizations at all levels had almost no effect, and the army was not there."Nine years later, none of the above apply to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).As general secretary, Xi has returned the CCP to the center of Chinese life. Citizens celebrate the party's much-edited history en masse at packed Red tourism sites, its founder Mao Zedong enjoys a new reverence, and once-dormant grassroots party cells have been revitalized.

    Chinese communist leader and Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke at the celebration for the 100th founding anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party on July 1, 2021 in Beijing, China.Lintao Zhang | Getty Images News | Getty Images BEIJING — One hundred years since the founding of China's Communist Party — which it says was born out of a secret meeting on a boat — President Xi Jinping now stands a chance to lead the country to becoming the world's largest economy. Achieving that level of growth will require China to propel itself past looming challenges: the so-called middle income trap, lack of innovation and a rapidly aging population. That's according to analysts, mostly looking in from abroad. For Xi, his eyes are already on the next hundred years, and an unfulfilled dream of the "great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation" which he reiterated at centenary celebrations for the party this week. Xi also holds the top political position of the general secretary of the ruling Communist Party's central committee and heads China's military commission. "He has iron in his soul,...
    Communist dictator Xi Jinping delivered a violent hour-long speech on Thursday to celebrate the 100th anniversary of China’s Communist Party, vowing that anyone seeking to liberate the Chinese people would have their “heads bashed bloody” and threatening sovereign Taiwan with “reunification.” Under Xi’s rule, Chinese officials have organized hundreds of events nationwide to celebrate the anniversary and published attempts at pop culture homages to the Party, like a 15-minute hip-hop song featuring 100 communist rappers. Officials do not appear to be implementing any social distancing protocol or requiring masks for attendees despite the tight quarters in stadiums and other public venues that people appear to be filling. China is the origin nation of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, has struggled to convince citizens to receive coronavirus vaccine doses, and continues to endure waves of case surges in its major cities that have resulted in significant disturbances to public life. Xi – who has made no public attempts to convince the Chinese public to get vaccinated and has not disclosed his personal vaccination status – did not mention the Chinese coronavirus pandemic in...

    More On: china ‘Xi-N-N’: CNN mocked for glowing coverage of China anniversary ‘Chinese Uber’ Didi valued at $80B in US IPO as shares soar House Republicans hold hearing on COVID origins — with no Democrats or Fauci Justice Thomas’ Pot Rebuke and other commentary July 1 should be a day of mourning for all freedom-loving people: It’s the 24th anniversary of Britain’s handover of Hong Kong to China, the first anniversary of Beijing’s imposition of a draconian national-security law on the territory and the centenary of the establishment of the Chinese Communist Party. Britain handed over Hong Kong to the People’s Republic in 1997, following the expiration of a 99-year-lease. The Sino-British Joint Declaration, an international treaty lodged at the United Nations, made the handover conditional on two explicit promises, valid for 50 years, or until 2047: first, that China would uphold the model of “one country, two systems,” respecting Hong Kong’s basic freedoms, rule of law and “high degree of autonomy”; and second, that Britain would monitor and safeguard that first promise. Twenty-four years later, the dual promise...
    Hong KongEditor's note: CNN has launched the Meanwhile in China newsletter, a three-times-a-week update exploring what you need to know about the country's rise and how it impacts the world. Sign up here.One hundred years ago this July, in a small brick house in Shanghai's former French Concession, Mao Zedong and around a dozen other delegates gathered together in secret to form a new political party. Much has changed since 1921, but the Chinese Communist Party, which today boasts more than 95 million members, equivalent to almost 7% of China's entire population, has remained an ever present fixture -- even as communist parties elsewhere collapse or fade from view. But while the party has proven itself willing to adapt and change at crucial moments to ensure its survival (by way of comparison, the ruling party of the Soviet Union lasted 93 years before the collapse of the communist regime in 1991), it remains keenly aware of the risks it faces, from a slowing economy, an aging population and a shrinking workforce, to an increasingly united West that is determined to...

Leahy: Crom, lots of stuff going on. What else is on your agenda? By the way, it is the first day of summer. And it felt like the first day of summer. I got to drive in this morning at 4:25 in the morning, 80 degrees out. Carmichael: Well, it felt like the first day of summer a couple of weeks ago when I got up close to 100 degrees. So that happens this time of year? Leahy: Yes. Tennessee. Yeah, that’s right. Carmichael: There are three or four articles all about China that I find that I find very interesting. But there is one that isn’t explicitly about China...
    Chinese leader Xi Jinping is revising China’s history — possibly because he intends to stay in power for his entire life and is warning Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members to not get in the way, an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal argued.
    Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said part of the widespread media dismissal of the coronavirus lab-leak theory last year stemmed from liberal networks' financial connections to the Chinese government. Cotton was among the voices widely decried in the press last year for suggesting the Chinese government claim of a natural origin for the coronavirus didn't hold up to scrutiny, noting the Wuhan Institute of Virology's experiments on coronaviruses and proximity to the outbreak.  "I just used common sense," he said. "The Chinese Communist Party pointed to an open-air food market as the origin of this virus but they didn't even sell bats in that market … This virus didn't emerge in some remote rural village or mountain next to a cave full of bats. It emerged in a city larger than New York, just down the road from labs where we know they were conducting very dangerous research into coronaviruses."  TOM COTTON: DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO PAY A PRICE FOR THEIR POLICIES "All the spin you just heard from reporters and journalists on other networks was just partly because it was...
    Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney said former President Donald Trump’s language about the 2020 presidential election is analogous to the Chinese Communist Party’s, in a Monday interview with CNN’s David Axelrod. Liz Cheney compares Trump’s rhetoric about U.S. democracy and elections to the Chinese Communist Partyhttps://t.co/7y3SGBjE67 — Axios (@axios) June 7, 2021 “When you listen to Donald Trump talk now, when you hear the language he’s using now, it is essentially the same things that the Chinese Communist Party, for example, says about the United States and our democracy,” Cheney said on Monday’s episode of CNN’s “The Axe Files” podcast. “When he says that our system doesn’t work … when he suggests that it’s, you know, incapable of conveying the will of the people, you know, that somehow it’s failed — those are the same things that the Chinese government says about us,” Cheney said. “And it’s very dangerous and damaging … and it’s not true.” Cheney has long been a staunch critic of Trump, both the former president’s actions and rhetoric. House Republicans voted to remove the former...
    By Larry Keane A major tenant of the Chinese Communist Party is a strict regulation of firearm ownership. They do so under the guise of “protecting human rights” and “reducing gun crimes.” They even criticize the United States for not following their example. But there’s a connection between CCP antigun propaganda and efforts in the United States and it doesn’t take “six degrees of separation” to see it. The line runs fairly neatly from the CCP, to failed Democratic presidential candidate and billionaire antigun crusader Michael Bloomberg and through to his gun control news arm, The Trace. New reporting shows just how strong the connection is. America’s ‘Dear Leader’ Bloomberg Media’s namesake founder and majority owner, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is a fan of gun control and efforts to enact more of it. Restricting the rights of law-abiding Americans was a platform plank during his abysmal 2020 Democratic presidential bid. During his campaign, Bloomberg claimed it was proper that he employed armed private security services while Americans not cut of his cloth had no legitimate need for similar armed protection....
    During an appearance on this week’s broadcast of FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) urged the Biden administration to seek accountability from Mainland China for what appears to be the possible origins of the COVID-19 virus. The Arkansas Republican lawmaker told host Maria Bartiromo the signs pointed to the origins being a lab in Wuhan and not what the Communist Chinese government had claimed. “Maria, it’s hard to believe it’s been 15 months since you and I first discussed what I think most Arkansans think is a very common-sense proposition — that is surely as a big coincidence that this virus started not up in some remote mountain village with caves full of bats, but rather in downtown Wuhan, a city larger than New York, just a few blocks up the road from labs that was researching bat-based coronaviruses,” he said. “And, since then, every bit of circumstantial evidence, to include evidence that came out in the final days of the Trump administration, that some employees and staff at these labs may have had coronavirus-like symptoms as early...
    Hong Kong (CNN)China's space agency has an extraordinary gift for the ruling Communist Party's 100th birthday: a rover on Mars.The historic landing on Saturday of Zhurong, a rover named after the god of fire in ancient Chinese folklore, was a crowning moment for China. It not only demonstrated the country's growing capabilities in space, but also served as a timely reminder of how far the country has come since its founding. During the 1919 May Fourth movement that paved the way for the birth of the Party two years later, patriotic Chinese students and intellectuals rallied for science and democracy to save the weak and divided country from the hands of Western powers.A century on and China is veering further from democracy under its authoritarian leader Xi Jinping -- but its scientific prowess is making tremendous strides, and fast rivaling that of the West.And China's ambitious space program is perhaps the most eye-catching example of that.Read MoreChina only launched its first satellite half a century ago. Already, it is the second country in the world to have a rover on...
                      by Steve Postal  Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) called China the “most sophisticated” actor of foreign countries subverting our biomedical research in last week’s Senate hearing on the topic. This follows the release of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s (DNI) Annual Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Community earlier this month. That assessment, cited by Sen. Burr, noted that “China will remain the top threat to US technological competitiveness as the CCP targets key technology sectors and proprietary commercial and military technology from US and allied companies and research institutions associated with defense, energy, finance, and other sectors.” In the Senate hearing, panelists disclosed several disturbing cases of research theft by the CCP and its agents. Dr. Michael Lauer, Deputy Director for Extramural Research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), testified that Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida, fired its CEO and five other senior people for connections to the Thousand Talents Program. Gary Cantrell, Deputy Inspector General for Investigations at the Office of Investigations of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) at the Department...
    Sery Kim dreams of being the first Asian American woman to represent a Southern congressional district in the House. Kim, an attorney and candidate for Texas’s 6th Congressional District who formerly worked in the Trump administration, wants to defend the Second Amendment, secure the U.S.-Mexico border, restore the "American dream," and most of all, take on the Chinese Communist Party, no matter the criticism. HOGAN ANNOUNCES WORKGROUP TO COUNTER ANTI-ASIAN HATE INCIDENTS "I was called a racist for saying that the Chinese Communist Party originated the coronavirus in China, that the Chinese Communist Party steals intellectual property, and the Chinese Communist Party has certainly committed genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang," Kim said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. Kim, 42, announced her bid in March. In recent weeks, she garnered national attention for comments she made about not wanting Chinese immigrants in the United States. Kim sued the Texas Tribune in a $10 million defamation lawsuit after the nonprofit outlet labeled her comments racist. Kim also lost the endorsements of California Reps. Young Kim and Michelle...
    The editors of an elite student newspaper have been slammed for 'capitulating to the Chinese Communist Party' after withdrawing a story on two academics' association to the Chinese government.   Honi Soit, the University of Sydney's student-run rag, published an article online and in print on March 31 claiming two engineering professors from the institution were linked to Chinese government programs.  Nothing in the article has yet been proved incorrect and the scholars named have not lodged a complaint.   But the story was pulled just hours later, with the editors issuing an apology on the Honi Soit Facebook page and explaining the article's risk of inciting racism against students of Chinese descent was the reason for its removal. The decision has sparked backlash online with many commentators accusing the newspaper of 'capitulating to China'.  The editors of Honi Soit, the University of Sydney's (pictured) student newspaper, have come under fire for pulling an article linking two professors to the Chinese Communist Party 'We unreservedly apologise to the academics mentioned in the article and for the harm caused to them, the Chinese...
    US officials deliberately held a phone call with Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab over an insecure line to allow the Chinese government to eavesdrop on their discussions about the origins of the coronavirus, Washington sources have told The Mail on Sunday. Shortly before leaving office with President Donald Trump in January, former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo used the call to inform Mr Raab of his plan to point the finger at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, suggesting the pandemic arose following a leak from a laboratory. A Washington source said Mr Raab had been 'very supportive' during the phone call, which also included the foreign ministers of Australia, Canada and New Zealand – the intelligence sharing group of nations known as Five Eyes – in late December. US officials deliberately held a phone call with Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab over an insecure line to allow the Chinese government to eavesdrop on their discussions about the origins of the coronavirus, Washington sources have told The Mail on Sunday The source said: 'We did it on an open phone to...
                      by Ambassador Callista L. Gingrich, Gingrich 360  In Xinjiang, located in western China, the Chinese Communist Party is aggressively working to eradicate the faith and culture of the Uyghurs and other predominantly Muslim ethnic minority communities.    On March 10, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio provided a written statement for a U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom hearing entitled, “A Religious Minority Enslaved: Addressing the Complicity of U.S. Companies in Uyghur Forced Labor.”  He wrote, “When a regime deprives a people of their right to practice their faith freely, they are depriving those people of their full humanity.  They are cutting them off from the traditions that sustained their ancestors and defined who they are as a people.  This is precisely why Beijing has targeted the Uyghurs.”  The religious and cultural practices of the Uyghurs pose significant threats to the absolute power and authority that the Chinese Communist Party seeks to maintain over Xinjiang – a critical geographic component to the CCP’s $1 trillion Belt and Road Initiative.   The Uyghurs have...
    Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) delivered an emotional, powerful rebuke to Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) — slamming the Texas congressman for “putting a bullseye on the back of Asian Americans.” In a House Judiciary Committee hearing on violence and discrimination against Asian Americans Thursday, Meng tore into the Texas congressman — as well as former President Donald Trump, and the Republican party at large — for racist rhetoric against China. “Your president, and your party, and your colleagues can talk about issues with any other country that you want,” Meng said. “But you don’t have to do it by putting a bullseye on the back of Asian Americans across this country! On our grandparents! On our kids!” Roy drew heat for waxing poetic about lynchings during his comment earlier in the proceedings — in the context of wanting more and firmer justice against “bad guys of all persuasions.” He later referred to the Chinese Communist part as “the Chi-Coms,” and blasted efforts to get him to abandon that type of language. “I’m not going to be ashamed of saying I oppose...
    During an interview that aired on Friday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s nationally syndicated radio show, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterated his hope that the United States would boycott the 2022 Beijing Olympics. According to Pompeo, U.S. participation would reward the ruling Communist Party in China. “We were working on this very issue during the final months of the Trump administration, trying to figure out the best approach, the approach that would impose the most costs on the Chinese Communist Party,” he said. “And so our first push was to develop a coalition around the world to convince the IOC to move those Games. They ought not to be held there. I hope that our athletes get a chance to participate in the Olympics. They very much deserve that.” “But in the end, we cannot allow American athletes to travel to Beijing and reward the Chinese Communist Party all the while that they are doing all of the nasty activity that they’re engaged in, all of the malign activity they’re engaged in around the world,” Pompeo added. “The world...
    Republican Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said that efforts to censor certain conservative networks “sounds like actions from the Chinese Communist Party” during a House hearing on “disinformation and extremism in the media” Wednesday. The House Committee on Energy & Commerce held a hearing titled “Fanning the Flames: Disinformation and Extremism in the Media,” which saw lawmakers and witnesses debate whether conservative networks like Newsmax, One America News Network and Fox News should be taken off the air due to coverage that some Democrats claim led to violence. Rodgers began by ripping House Democrats’ efforts to pressure big tech into censoring conservative media during her opening statement. (RELATED: House Democrats Pressure TV Broadcasters To Deplatform Conservative Networks) “Elected officials using their platform to pressure private companies to censor media outlets they disagree with? That sounds like actions from the Chinese Communist Party, not duly elected representatives of the United States Congress,” Rodgers said. “Here, we cherish free speech and a free, independent press. We believe in dialogue and in the battle of ideas.” WATCH: Rodgers also noted that the “new approach”...
    Hong Kong (CNN)What does it mean to be a patriot in modern China? Can someone love the country while opposing the ruling Communist Party? Those questions could spell the end for any last vestiges of democracy in Hong Kong, as the government moved to introduce new requirements for public officials Tuesday, including that they swear loyalty oaths and embrace Beijing's rule over the city. Anyone who fails to take the oath -- or is deemed to have done so in an insincere fashion -- would be immediately disqualified from office and banned from running in elections for the next five years, Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Erick Tsang said. Tsang said that under the proposed new oath requirements, anyone standing for election at any level must embrace national sovereignty and security, and embrace the fact that Hong Kong is an inalienable part of the People's Republic of China.In practice, the concept of "patriotism" could be even broader, extending not only to the country, but to the ruling Communist Party.

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) fired a verbal volley at the Chinese Communist regime in a speech at the Reagan Institute on Thursday as he unveiled his latest report on U.S. strategy toward China: “Beat China: Targeted Decoupling and the Economic Long War.” Cotton said in his opening remarks: This evil empire preys on and spies on Americans. It imprisons innocent people in concentration camps, it uses slave labor to fuel its factories and it denies the most basic freedoms to all of its 1.4 billion people. We need to beat this evil empire and consign the Chinese Communists — just like the Bolsheviks — to the ash heap of history. Cotton criticized U.S. policy towards China over the last several decades where politicians engaged China as a strategic partner while American corporations worked to integrate their economies, hurting American workers. “Many believed that open markets and open borders would make China rich, and then make China free. So for decades they fed the tiger and made it more powerful,” he said. He added: A tidal wave of Chinese imports flooded...
    Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), the chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), said during an RSC meeting Thursday the Joe Biden administration “seems to be doing exactly the opposite” of what is needed to confront China. Banks held his weekly RSC meeting with former Donald Trump national security adviser H.R. McMaster, who explained to the House conservatives how to combat a rising China. Banks opened the question and answer portion of the meeting, asking what conservatives could do to combat the Chinese Communist Party. He also noted the Biden administration seems to be taking a softer approach towards China. The Hoosier conservative said: My first simple question: It seems like the Biden administration is doing exactly the opposite of everything that you just recommended to us. Why is that, and what do we have to do as conservative Republican members in the House to make this issue, to make our efforts to confront the Chinese Communist Party, hold the CCP accountable, what do we have to do to make that a bipartisan issue again because at the moment, the partisan...
