  • FROM 2019: The troubling reason why Biden is so soft on China

    Last week, Biden raised eyebrows when he shrugged off concerns over the China threat. “Come on, man,” Biden said. “I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what, they’re not competition for us.” Perhaps Biden’s insouciant attitude toward the Chinese government has to do with the fact that his family does not consider them competitors but business partners. In 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Less than two weeks later, Hunter Biden’s firm inked a $1 billion private equity deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s...

    At least 16 people were killed and 90 others wounded after a powerful explosion rocked outside a provincial police office in Firoz Koah, capital of Afghanistan's western Ghor province on Sunday, a local official confirmed. "The final number of casualties would be shared with media later in the day. The number of casualties may change as the rescue of victims from under debris is continuing," Abdul Latif Rahimi from the provincial health directorate told Xinhua. Many wounded remained in critical condition, he said. The blast occurred roughly at 11:15 a.m. (local time) when an explosive-laden minibus was detonated along a...

    Meet your (Chinese) Facebook censorsChina is one of the most censorious societies on earth. So what better place for Facebook to recruit social-media censors? There are at least half a dozen Chinese nationals who are working on censorship, a former Facebook insider told me last week. So at some point, they [Facebook bosses] thought, Hey, were going to get them H-1B visas so they can do this work. The insider shared an internal directory of the team that does much of this work. Its called Hate-Speech Engineering (George Orwell, call your office), and most of its members are based...

    China has again put its military in a high state of alert after two US Navy warships recently sailed through the Taiwan Strait. Late last week the US destroyer John McCain sailed near the disputed Paracel Islands administered and militarized by China, upon which the PLA military warned the US to halt its provocations. The latest incident was Wednesday, when the Arleigh Burke class guided-missile destroyer USS Barry passed through the strait. Washington was quick to emphasize that it was a routine transit like others toward the purpose of peaceful freedom of navigation operations, while Beijing once again denounced the...

    Negative public opinion toward China has significantly increased in several advanced economies, according to a new survey released by the Pew Research Center on Tuesday. In nine of the 14 countries included in the survey, negative views on China have reached their highest point since Pew began collecting data on the topic more than a decade ago. In Australia, 81% of respondents said they see China unfavorably, a 24% increase since 2019. In the United States, negative views of China have also increased nearly 20% over the last four years. Around three-quarters of respondents in the United Kingdom now view...

    Cardinal Drops Bombshell on ‘Beijing’ Biden Catholics cannot vote for murder of innocent babies ROME ( - In an unprecedented intervention into the U.S. election debate, a top cardinal is warning of dire global consequences if Americans vote for a presidential candidate with a communist, abortionist and gender ideology agenda.  Chinese authorities blow up a church in Shanxi province  "Three points are decisive in the upcoming elections," Cdl. Gerhard Müller, the former Vatican doctrinal watchdog, told Breitbart News, in a clear condemnation of Catholic-in-name-only presidential candidate Joe Biden. "First, the 'yes' to life against abortion, second, freedom of religion against the mainstreaming...

    U.N. Secretary-General Antnio Guterres warned Friday that the world is living in the shadow of nuclear catastrophe, fueled by growing distrust and tensions between the nuclear powers. [] As examples, Guterres has expressed deep concern at the escalating disputes between the Trump administration and China. Relations between the U.S. and Russia are at a low point. Nuclear-armed India and Pakistan are feuding over Kashmir, and India just had a border skirmish with China. And North Korea boasts about its nuclear weapons. [] Guterres also pointed to the only treaty constraining the size of the worlds largest nuclear arsenals the...

    It is interesting anyway. Watch the difference in Covid totals, I am not saying any country wants to 'take the lead' in this category. But watch, nevertheless. India seems poised to, at least, challenge America, at this questionable total.

    The World Health Organization supported Chinas campaign to vaccinate certain people against coronavirus in July while clinical trials were still under way, a Chinese health official said on Friday, although some experts have expressed concern about the move. China launched its emergency programme in July, having communicated with the WHO in late June, according to Zheng Zhongwei, a National Health Commission official. Hundreds of thousands essential workers and other limited groups of people considered at high risk of infection have been given the vaccine, even though its efficacy and safety had not been fully established as Phase 3 clinical trials...

    UN Secretary-General Antnio Guterres on Tuesday urged the world to prevent a Cold War and halt conflicts so it can focus on the coronavirus pandemic. He made the comments as he opened the almost entirely virtual UN General Assembly general debate, marking the organizations 75th anniversary. We must do everything to avoid a new Cold War, Guterres said. We are moving in a very dangerous direction. Our world cannot afford a future where the two largest economies split the globe in a great fracture each with its own trade and financial rules and internet and artificial intelligence capacities, he...

    Chinas leader took oblique potshots at the United States and its foreign policies Tuesday, cautioning in a U.N. address that the world must not fall into the trap of a clash of civilizations remarks played minutes after delegates heard the American president insist that the United Nations hold China accountable for how it handled the emergence of the coronavirus. Major countries should act like major countries, Xi Jinping said in a speech to the U.N. General Assembly, a speech made remotely and recorded in advance because the pandemic prevented leaders from convening as they have for decades. The virus...

    A high-octane PR video for China's airforce crashlanded on social media after users questioned why the world's second-largest military power spliced clips from Hollywood blockbusters "Transformers" and "The Rock" into its own propaganda material. The video, with 4.72 million views on Weibo and crafted by the Propaganda and Culture Centre of the PLA's Air Force, parades its medium- and long-range H-6 bomber. With a soaring score and high-altitude action shots, the chest-thumping video shows Chinese airmen launching an attack on an island base -- strongly resembling US facilities in Diego Garcia and Guam -- then returning from the successful sortie....

    Democrat Joe Biden leaves little doubt that if elected he would try to scale back President Donald Trumps buildup in nuclear weapons spending. And although the former vice president has not fully detailed his nuclear priorities, he says he would make the U.S. less reliant on the worlds deadliest weapons. The two candidates views on nuclear weapons policy and strategy carry unusual significance in this election because the United States is at a turning point in deciding the future of its weapons arsenal and because of growing debate about the threat posed by Chinese and Russian nuclear advances. [] Biden...

At a time when much of the rest of the world is starting to wake up to the repression, mendacity, and dangers of the Chinese Communist Party regime, the Vatican is getting even deeper in bed with it. And at a time when that regime is intensifying repression of religionincluding Catholicsin China, Pope Francis is renewing an accord with Beijing that has yielded no benefits yet save for President Xi Jinping and only disunity and suffering for the Catholic Church.Two years ago, the...

    It all seems par for the course for Cleveland. Baker Mayfield bounced back from a rough first week to lead the Cleveland Browns over the Joe Burrow-led Cincinnati Bengals, 35-30, on Thursday night. And approximately 6,000 fans were fortunate enough to watch in person when Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced earlier this month that 6,000 could attend despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The Browns (1-1) prepared fans with a detailed video on their website that delved into social distancing and safety protocols for FirstEnergy Stadium. Everyone attending had to sign a health promise and had specific entry times and locations. There...

    A spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry on Tuesday decried the U.S.-enacted limits on importing cotton, apparel, hair products, and other goods from companies reasonably believed to be engaging in slave labor in China, calling the sanctions a naked act of bullying. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in tandem with Customs and Border Protection (CBP), announced five new Withhold Release Orders on products from Xinjiang, Chinas westernmost province, believed to be home to over 1,000 concentration camps. China has imprisoned as many as 3 million Muslims, most of ethnic Uyghur descent, in the camps, where survivors say they...

    The Chinese government intentionally manufactured and released the COVID-19 virus that led to mass shutdowns and deaths across the world, a top virologist and whistleblower told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday. Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan whether she believed the Chinese communist party released the virus "on purpose." "Yes, of course, it's intentionally," she responded on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation. "I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab which is the top...

    And Mussolini made the trains run on time . . . On today's Morning Joe, Adrian Wooldridge, a columnist at The Economist, said that unlike the United States, China passes the "good government" test. Wooldridge made his comment in the context of discussing the way various countries have dealt with the coronavirus pandemic, but offered no qualifier as to his "good government" praise of China. To the contrary, Wooldridge said that the advantage of good government is moving from the West "to the East. We have to wake up to this fact that government matters, and that were falling behind...
