    The World Health Organization (WHO) announced Saturday it is halting its trials of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine and HIV treatment lopinavir/ritonavir in patients hospitalized with the coronavirus after results showed the drugs did not reduce mortality rates."These interim trial results show that hydroxychloroquine and lopinavir/ritonavir produce little or no reduction in the mortality of hospitalized COVID-19 patients when compared to standard of care. Solidarity trial investigators will interrupt the trials with immediate effect," the WHO said in a statement, referencing multi-country trials it is conducting.

    Cardinal Zen contradicts Hong Kong cardinal: China’s new national security law will hurt freedom of religion 'We can see no benefit, no true religious freedom' from the Vatican's deal with China two years ago, Cardinal Zen says. HONG KONG, June 30, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) ― China has imposed a new security law on Hong Kong that Cardinal Joseph Zen believes will have a deleterious effect on religious freedom.

    New Delhi: The Centre has blocked 59 apps with Chinese links that included the hugely popular TikTok, WeChat and UC Browser, amid a huge economic backlash against China following the June 15 clashes at Ladakh in which 20 Indian soldiers died in action. Sources said inputs from intelligence agencies suggested that the apps have been violating the terms of usage, compromising users privacy, and being used as spyware or malware. Within minutes of the announcement, the Indian government's TikTok account MyGov, which had 1.1 milliorn followers, was disabled. The move comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi said India...

    China, the same country that gave us the China coronavirus, costing over 100,000 American lives, is also behind much of the bad press related to President Trump and the USA. China’s CCP (Communist Party) created an entity labeled the “United Front” directed to ensure the media in the US is flattering towards China and policies beneficial to China. The United Front also supports Democrat policies that benefit China and pushes the promotion of these policies. We’ve reported numerous times how China’s economy is stalling, if not going backwards. There are numerous measurements that support this position, and yet you...

    Given its hold on many American Democrat politicians (Joe Biden among them) and its aggressive global stance, it is not surprising that during testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee in July 2019, FBI Director Christopher Wray emphasized: there is no country that poses a more severe counterintelligence threat right now than China. Now in 2020, China has purchased over 100,000 acres in West Texas for what they say is an economic project. U.S. intelligence is casting a suspicious eye at their claim. Retired CIA station chief Daniel Hoffman told the media, The specific location in Xis crosshairs is the iconic...

The Failure of the 2018 Accord Next September 22, when it turns two, the secret accord signed in 2018 between the Holy See and China on the appointment of bishops will expire. So said on June 7 the archbishop and diplomat Claudio Maria Celli, a longtime protagonist of contacts between the two sides.And he added:I think we should probably reconfirm it for one or two years, but the Holy See has not yet made a decision in this regard, which will then be communicated to the Chinese authorities.Celli acknowledged that...

    China’s economy was slowing drastically last year before the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan. There were multiple signs that China’s economy was in horrible shape. Today we provide a couple more examples. In December 2019 we reported you can feel it in Hong Kong. The economy is sluggish. We reported for months that President Trump had the US in the position that it could only win in a trade deal with China and he did.We reported in a post in August 2019 that President Trump recognized that China is in an all out war with the US in regards to information...

    Joe Biden is running away from his record as the "pro-China" candidate so quickly that his defenders in the liberal press can't make heads or tails of it.  Ordinary Americans are equally confused. Biden spent over three decades opening American markets to Chinese goods, ignoring China's abhorrent human rights record, and dismissing the challenge posed by our greatest rival for global leadership.  The "made in China" era coincided with the closure of tens of thousands of American factories, stagnant working-class wages, and the loss of America's ability to produce essential goods domestically — a vulnerability that took on incredible significance when...

    Yore: Vatican Must Help Free Chinese Christians Its Deal with the Devil Helped Repress The Vaticans negotiations with China have not just done little to empower Catholics in the country, but actively imperiled Catholic clergy. The Vatican must do all within its power to save those victims of its mistakes. For over five years, the Vatican and Chinese Communist Party negotiated back and forth to hammer out an agreement about the appointment and validity of Catholic Bishops in Communist China. Since 1957, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) created and imposed a faux Catholic Patriotic Church with its own seminaries, priests,...

    Twitter announced Thursday that it had deleted more than 170,000 accounts tied to a Chinese state-linked operation that were spreading deceptive information around the COVID-19 virus, political dynamics in Hong Kong, and other issues. Almost 25,000 of the accounts that were deleted formed what Twitter described as the “core network,” while around 150,000 accounts were amplifying messages from the core groups. Twitter noted that the accounts taken down this week were tied to a Chinese state-backed operation last year that attempted to sow political discord in Hong Kong. Those accounts were also taken down. According to an analysis of the...

    The preparatory work has been well done, comrade Democrats! In 2020, the Democrats managed to simultaneously shoulder on America the analog of the 1918 epidemic, the analog of the 1929 depression, and the analog of the 1968 riots. Moreover, as soon as the corona-gulag began, impeachment was completely forgotten. As soon as the pogroms started, the coronavirus had been milked for all it was worth, and they want you to forget about it conveniently. The pogroms of 1968 (both in America and in other Western countries) became possible only because of the significant external influence and support of thugs. The...

    can't breathe." That was the reply on Saturday of Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying to her American counterpart, Morgan Ortagus, who had criticized Beijing over its moves to end Hong Kong's autonomy. Since Friday, when President Donald Trump announced measures targeting China over Hong Kong and other matters, Beijing has waged a ferocious disinformation campaign against the United States. The campaign is clearly a result of Beijing's new hardline approach to the world, and is possibly a sign that Chinese policymakers have run out of feasible options. In any case, relations between Washington and Beijing are about to become...

    If you want to understand why China will attack us, the place to start is the old U.S. Department of War film, Know Your Enemy: Japan, made the last time we were attacked by a major Asian power that was transitioning from its feudal past. The Japanese in WWII were driven by their creation myth which says that they were founded by an emperor called Jimmu in 660 B.C. Jimmu had a philosophy called Hakko Ichiu which means that let us extend the capitol and cover the eight corners of the world under one roof. As per this still from...

    Fresh evidence of Chinas shocking cover-up of the pandemic outbreak has been found in censored media reports from Wuhan. Samples taken from sick patients and analysed by at least five laboratories had confirmed the existence of a lethal new coronavirus before China told global health authorities about an infectious disease that it claimed was unidentified. The reports obtained by The Mail on Sunday reveal that one team even found the virus was clearly contagious while others had unravelled its genetic composition vital for developing diagnostic tests and vaccines.
