    Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden says if elected, he would not tear down the parts of the barrier along the U.S. Southern border built during the Trump administration — but he would cease construction. "There will not be another foot of wall constructed on my administration, No. 1," he told NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro during an interview with journalists from the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists. "I'm going to make sure that we have border protection, but it's going to be based on making sure that we use high-tech capacity to deal with it. And...

    The European Union needs to “work hand in hand” with China as a matter of necessity given the economic havoc wreaked by the coronavirus pandemic, said a top EU official in charge of Tuesday’s trade talks with Beijing. Chaired by Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He, the meeting comes as Brussels is hoping to clinch a landmark investment deal with China this year, though progress has been slow. “By pulling together, we can recover more quickly economically, and make progress on areas of mutual interest such as trade and investment relations,” European Commission Executive Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis told Politico ahead of the...

    It was just about week ago that we highlighted a mysterious trend that was sweeping the U.S.: citizens were receiving unsolicited packages of seeds, with return addresses from China, for apparently no reason at all. Now, the U.S. has started to identify "14 types of plants" that the seeds belonged to, revealing a “mix of ornamental, fruit and vegetable, herb and weed species,” according to the NY Times. Cabbage, hibiscus, lavender, mint, morning glory, mustard, rose, rosemary and sage have all been identified. Osama El-Lissy of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service said: “This...
  • It's Too Late To Stop China's Military Catch-Up With America

    <p>As the People’s Republic of China (PRC) emerged from war and revolution in 1949, it became apparent that the Chinese economy lacked the capacity to compete with the U.S. or the U.S.S.R. in the production of advanced military technology. Transfers from the Soviet Union helped remedy the gap in the 1950s, as did transfers from the United States and Europe in the 1970s and 1980s. Still, the Cultural Revolution stifled technology and scientific research, leaving the Chinese even farther behind.</p>

    Hong Kong disqualified at least 12 pro-democracy nominees from an upcoming election after the government said the candidates failed to pledge allegiance to both Hong Kong and Beijing. Among those barred Thursday from the September legislative election are prominent pro-democracy activist Tiffany Yuen, incumbent lawmaker Dennis Kwok from the pro-democracy Civic Party, and Joshua Wong, an activist who topped the polls in an unofficial primary earlier this month. The government said candidates for the Legislative Council, which helps to make and amend Hong Kong’s laws, will be invalidated if they advocated or promoted the territory’s independence, solicited intervention by foreign...

    Ireland is being considered as a possible location for an “international charter city” to be developed in anticipation of a mass exodus of Hong Kongers fleeing China’s tightening grasp on their home. Ivan Ko, a Hong Kong citizen with decades of experience in real estate and property development, has reportedly been searching for places around the world to build a new version of Hong Kong since China implemented its new national security law in the city. The charter city would be designed to have its own tax regime and regulations, U.K.’s The Telegraph reported. Last week, the British government outlined...

    American Lawyer Takes on Chinese Regime and the Catholic Church A lawyer who has spent her career working for the welfare of missing and trafficked children has now turned her efforts to protecting the religious rights of children in China.On June 2, Liz Yore filed three submissions to the United Nations special rapporteur (SR) on freedom of belief and religion. The first details religious rights abuses of Chinese children, while the second outlines the imprisonment by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) of two Catholic bishops, one of whom has been detained for 25 years, whose whereabouts are unknown.The third, says...

    Two China experts discuss the human rights abuses in China and how the world is responding Maura Moynihan, a China activist and the daughter of the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, says she is "disgusted" and "sick to death" over how government, powerful U.S. media companies and others serve as China apologists. "The mainstream media is so beyond downplaying this, it's irresponsible," Moynihan said on a new John Solomon Reports podcast about the media's recent coverage of China's treatment of the Uyghur Muslim minority. Among the reported atrocities are members being taken in the middle of the night, forced into...

    China’s President Xi Jinping has promised that China will stick to its “peaceful development” path, continue reform and deepen the opening of its domestic market in a letter to top international business executives. In a clear bid to win the hearts and minds of the global business community amid rising tensions with the United States, Xi’s letter to the Global CEO Council stated that the long-term economic fundamentals of the Chinese economy remain sound and “will not change” despite the impact of the coronavirus. A summary of the letter to the group of foreign business executives was released by the...

    Impoverished Christians living in China who are receiving aid from the state have been ordered to renounce their faith or have their welfare benefits revoked, according to reports from Bitter Winter, a non-profit organization dedicated to religious and human rights in China. During a government meeting in the city of Linfen near the northern province of Shanxi, officials from all villages under the city's jurisdiction were instructed to remove crosses, religious symbols, and images from the homes of Christians who receive welfare payments and replace them with images of Chairman Mao Zedong and President Xi Jinping.

    Michigan Rep. Justin Amash (L) confirmed Thursday evening that he was not seeking reelection to Congress, in an apparent end to his 2020 political aspirations. Amash retweeted an article from The Detroit News that quoted an aide to the congressman as saying his reelection campaign had "idled" in February, and that Amash did not intend to seek the Libertarian Party's nomination for the district after abandoning the Republican Party last year. "He hasn't been campaigning for any office and doesn't plan to seek the nomination for any office," an adviser told the publication. "I love representing our community in Congress....

    A video released by a recently formed anti-Trump group on Monday sparked an overnight Twitter rampage from President Donald Trump. One of the group’s richest backers? Walmart billionaire Christy Walton. The Lincoln Project, a super-PAC founded by prominent Republicans including George Conway (husband of White House advisor Kellyanne Conway), released the video, titled “Mourning in America,” attacking Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The one-minute video postulated, “Under the leadership of Donald Trump, our country is weaker and sicker and poorer. And now Americans are asking, ‘If we have another four years like this, will there even be an America?’”...

    China has infiltrated Britain more successfully than it has other European countries, an expert warned last night. Author Mareike Ohlberg, who has written about the underhand tactics of the country’s Communist Party, said attempts to groom leading figures in business and politics were at an advanced stage in the UK. Miss Ohlberg, whose book Hidden Hand has been serialized by the Daily Mail, said: “There has been a tremendous amount of work in getting elites over to the CCP side. To me, the UK has always stood out for the very advanced stage of elite capture compared to other European...

    The red planet will be at its closest point to Earth in late July, at around 36 million miles (58 million kilometers), but Tianwen-1 will still have to navigate a much greater distance to land on Mars' surface sometime in April 2021. That requires a good deal of navigational accuracy and a terrifying descent to the surface. As the US and Russia are well aware, Mars is notoriously good at killing off robotic explorers. Over 50% of the missions sent to the red planet fail. The Chinese mission will kick the difficulty up a few more notches. Tianwen-1 is a...

    The National Basketball Association quietly backtracked its policy that forbade the text “FreeHongKong” on custom jerseys on its online store after severe blowback. As the Washington Free Beacon reported Monday, the NBA did not allow the phrase on custom jersey orders but permitted a variety of other phrases, including anti-Semitic messages. As of Tuesday morning, however, “FreeHongKong” is allowed on jerseys. …

    With all eyes on Trump's Tuesday evening Rose Garden speech which unveiled that he'll sign new and punitive measures indirectly targeting China — namely the Hong Kong Autonomy Act, a bipartisan measure to penalize banks that work with Chinese officials found to be interfering in Hong Kong affairs — it remains that arguably the most important recent statements out of China came not from current government officials, but from Zhou Li, the 65-year-old former deputy head of the Chinese Communist Party's International Liaison Department. He's considered an important voice who echoes the outside the box thinking and general "talk"...

    I knew for sure that Anthony Fauci is a fraud after listening to him for about 10 seconds—as anyone who listens carefully would have known as well. President Trump had been charging the Chinese government with obscurancy and deception in its handling of the novel coronavirus outbreak. Fauci had dealt intimately with the Chinese on that matter. His National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Centers for Disease Control had partially financed the notorious Wuhan laboratory where Chinese scientists were researching the virus. Fauci knew a lot. A reporter asked Fauci if he agreed with Trump that the...

    At least 21 people including 17 sailors and four civilians were hospitalized with minor injuries on Sunday following a massive fire and explosion on board a Navy ship at Naval Base San Diego that sent billowing plumes of smoke and ash into the sky.

Fire and rescue crews are on the scene responding to the three-alarm fire on the amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6) (snip). About 200 sailors and officers were on board...

    An explosion erupted as a roaring blaze was reported on a military assault ship at Naval Base San Diego Sunday morning, according to authorities. Plumes of smoke arose from USS Bonhomme Richard as firefighters battled the three-alarm blaze on the 3400 block on Senn St. The vessel is an amphibious assault ship homeported in San Diego, according to Krishna Jackson of Naval Base San Diego. The ship had undergone a regular maintenance cycle before the fire was reported, Jackson said. Crew members typically are aboard the ship on weekends, but there are fewer than on weekdays. Several sailors are being...
