China's use of technology for religious oppression a 'threat to all of us,' warns Brownback

August 25, 2020

China’s use of high-tech surveillance to oppress and monitor Uighur Muslims is the “future of religious oppression” that could spread across the world if not stopped by the U.S.
and other international players, Sam Brownback, U.S. ambassador at large for International Religious Freedom, has warned.

During a webinar on “China’s Rising Threat to Human Rights” hosted by the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission on Aug. 21, panelists discussed the religious persecution of Uighur Muslims, a community that resides mostly in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region in China, and its implications for the wider religious community.

Brownback said that the tactics used against Uighur Muslims represent the “cutting edge of religious persecution." Estimates suggest that as many as 1 million Uighur Muslims have been subject to internment camps in Xinjiang, where they are taught to be secular citizens who will never come against the ruling Communist Party.

In China, they’re closing churches, jailing pastors – and even rewriting scripture

China’s Communist party is intensifying religious persecution as Christianity’s popularity grows. A new state translation of the Bible will establish a ‘correct understanding’ of the text



Lily Kuo in Chengdu
Sun 13 Jan 2019 03.00 EST

In late October, the pastor of one of China’s best-known underground churches asked this of his congregation: had they successfully spread the gospel throughout their city? “If tomorrow morning the Early Rain Covenant Church suddenly disappeared from the city of Chengdu, if each of us vanished into thin air, would this city be any different? Would anyone miss us?” said Wang Yi, leaning over his pulpit and pausing to let the question weigh on his audience. “I don’t know.”

...

The government has orchestrated a campaign to ‘sinicise’ Christianity, to turn Christianity into a fully domesticated religion that would do the bidding of the party,” said Lian Xi, a professor at Duke University in North Carolina, who focuses on Christianity in modern China.
...
In November the Guangzhou Bible Reformed Church was shut for the second time in three months. “The Chinese Communist party (CCP) wants to be the God of China and the Chinese people. But according to the Bible only God is God. The government is scared of the churches,” said Huang Xiaoning, the church’s pastor.
...
The goal of the crackdown is not to eradicate religions,” said Ying Fuk Tsang, director of the Christian Study Centre on Chinese Religion and Culture at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. “President Xi Jinping is trying to establish a new order on religion, suppressing its blistering development. [The government] aims to regulate the ‘religious market’ as a whole.”
Almost three months later, Wang’s hypothetical scenario is being put to the test. The church in south-west China has been shuttered and Wang and his wife, Jiang Rong, remain in detention after police arrested more than 100 Early Rain church members in December. Many of those who haven’t been detained are in hiding. Others have been sent away from Chengdu and barred from returning. Some, including Wang’s mother and his young son, are under close surveillance. Wang and his wife are being charged for “inciting subversion”, a crime that carries a penalty of up to 15 years in prison.

Trump administration considering labeling China's oppression of Uighur Muslims a genocide: report
China has been accused of mass human rights abuses in its Xinjiang province

By Paul Best | Fox News

Mike Pompeo says China is doing tremendous harm to its Muslim population
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defends religious freedom on 'The Ingraham Angle.'

The Trump administration is considering labeling China’s oppression of Uighur Muslims in the western Xinjiang province “genocide,” Politico reports.

Tensions between the United States and China have increased in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, disagreements about trade and Hong Kong’s autonomy. An accusation of genocide would inflame those tensions further.

The White House National Security Council condemned China’s actions in the Xinjiang province on Tuesday.

“Beijing’s atrocities against the Uighurs include horrific acts against women including forced abortion, forced sterilization and other coercive birth control methods, state-sponsored forced labor, sexual violence including through rape in detention, compulsory home-stays by Han officials, and forced marriages,” John Ullyot, a National Security Council spokesperson, told Fox News in a statement. “The Chinese Communist Party’s atrocities also include the largest incarceration of an ethnic minority since World War II.”

A June report by Adrian Zenz for the Jamestown Foundation argued that Beijing started a campaign of mass sterilizations and forced family separations among Uighurs in 2017 to decrease their natural population growth.

“These findings raise serious concerns as to whether Beijing’s policies in Xinjiang represent, in fundamental respects, what might be characterized as a demographic campaign of genocide per the text of Section D, Article II of the U.N. Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide,” Zenz wrote.

Last month, the Trump administration imposed sanctions and visa restrictions on multiple Chinese Communist Party officials believed to be responsible for human rights abuses in the Xinjiang province. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said those abuses “include forced labor, arbitrary mass detention, and forced population control, and attempts to erase their culture and Muslim faith.”

The State Department did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

CHINA SUBJECTS MUSLIM MINORITIES TO FORCED BIRTH CONTROL, ABORTIONS TO SUPPRESS POPULATION, REPORT SAYS

International organizations also condemned Beijing for its treatment of Uighurs. Gay McDougall, the vice chairman of a United Nations anti-discrimination committee, said in 2018 that her organization has received “numerous and credible reports” of mass human rights abuses in the Xinjaing province.

“There are estimates that upwards of a million people are being held in so-called counter-extremism centers and another 2 million have been forced into so-called re-education camps for political and cultural indoctrination,” McDougall said at a hearing.


China has repeatedly denied that human rights abuses have taken place in the Xinjiang province. The Chinese embassy in Washington, D.C. did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

CHINA CAUGHT USING MALWARE TO SPY ON UIGHURS AS PART OF CAMPAIGN TO CURB  THE MUSLIM POPULATION

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has been outspoken on the campaign trail about China’s internment of Uighur Muslims.

“The unspeakable oppression that Uighurs and other ethnic minorities have suffered at the hands of China’s authoritarian government is genocide and Joe Biden stands against it in the strongest terms,” Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates told Politico. “If the Trump administration does indeed choose to call this out for what it is, as Joe Biden already did, the pressing question is what will Donald Trump do to take action. He must also apologize for condoning this horrifying treatment of Uighurs."

Former Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton alleged in his memoir earlier this year that President Trump encouraged Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2019 to continue building the internment camps where Uighur Muslims are detained.

Defying China’s wrath, Czech senator delivers Taiwan speech
Published Tue, Sep 1 2020 2:57 AM EDT


Czech Senate speaker Milos Vystrcil speaks to the press at the parliament in Taipei on Sept. 1, 2020.

  The president of the Czech Republic’s Senate addressed Taiwan’s national legislature on Tuesday, offering a strong rebuke to authoritarian politics and Beijing’s increasingly aggressive foreign policy.

Milos Vystrcil concluded a speech that underscored shared democratic values by proclaiming in Mandarin that “I am Taiwanese,” a throwback to former U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s famed 1963 anti-communist speech in a then-divided Berlin in which he declared he was a Berliner.

Beijing is furious about the Czech delegation’s visit, with the foreign ministry summoning the Czech Republic’s ambassador in the country to lodge stern representations on Monday and saying the visit amounted to “flagrant support of Taiwan independence.”

,...

Amid China’s campaign of diplomatic isolation and military threats, Taiwan has been blocked from participating in major international forums and now has just 15 formal allies. Despite the lack of official ties, the U.S. remains Taiwan’s closest partner and source of defensive weaponry to counter China’s threat to bring the island under its control by military means.

Repression
Xi Jinping is bringing methods honed in Xinjiang back to the Himalayas.

By Kelsang Dolma | August 31, 2020, 3:37 PM


In the early 2000s, the Free Tibet movement galvanized the world. From celebrity endorsements to Simpsons cameos, the media launched the plight of Tibet into the Western imagination; the suffering of Tibetans under a foreign regime became well known. But today, with atrocities in Xinjiang and Hong Kong dominating the narrative and Tibet now more sealed off than ever, news about the Himalayan region has been reduced to stray sentences in coverage on Chinese aggression.

Yet oppression in Tibet has only gotten worse. On Aug. 29, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced plans to “strengthen unity and socialism” in Tibet by building an “impregnable fortress” to ward off splittism. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) views Tibetan disobedience, violent or nonviolent, as separatism, which, in Beijing’s eyes, threatens national security and expansionism. So when the 2008 Tibet protests erupted, fomented by discontent with decades-long repression, the CCP ruthlessly responded by killing and arbitrarily arresting protesters. But these immediate measures were not enough. The CCP began to plan a long-term policy of forced assimilation.

Chen Quanguo, then a rising star in the CCP, arrived in Tibet as the new party secretary in 2011 and rapidly transformed Tibet into one of the most pervasive police states in the world, a model that would soon be adopted in Xinjiang against the Muslim Uighurs. Chen implemented an urban design—a panopticon-like system that is euphemistically referred to as “grid-style social management”—that enables CCP police officers to easily surveil Tibetans. Also in the name of counterterrorism, Chen oversaw the formation of “double-linked households,” an Orwellian social system in which family members are encouraged to report one another to the authorities at any hint of transgression. In 2016, Chen became Xinjiang’s Communist Party secretary and nationalized these policies, bringing the techniques practiced on Tibetans to Xinjiang.

The ugly truth about China’s organ harvesting
By Anastasia Lin
June 23, 2019

The verdict is in: On June 17, the China Tribunal announced its finding that China’s Communist regime has for two decades practiced systematic, forced organ removal from prisoners of conscience, mainly Falun Gong practitioners and Muslims.

The independent, London-based panel of international legal and medical experts was led by Sir Geoffrey Nice, who also headed the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.

After unwilling donors are executed, the tribunal found, their organs are sold to Chinese citizens or foreign “transplant tourists.” Before 2015, China, whose Confucian value system considers it important to keep the body ­intact after death, had no voluntary organ-transplant system. Yet hospitals perform some 60,000 to 90,000 transplant surgeries each year.


Chinese hospitals promise that they can deliver hearts, livers, kidneys and corneas of matching blood type and size in two weeks. The surgeries can be scheduled in advance, which suggests hospitals know exactly when the “donors” are going to die. By contrast, America has a highly developed voluntary organ-donation system, and recipients typically have to wait hundreds of days.

According to human-rights researchers, Chinese prison authorities regularly subject detained Falun Gong practitioners to medical exams to determine the health of their organs (even as they routinely torture these same prisoners). Detained Uighur Muslims report similar medical examinations.

The tribunal also heard from Chinese medical personnel who have defected from the regime. They warned Western governments and medical practitioners of this ongoing atrocity.



...
China launches vicious ad hominem attacks against critics, to undermine our credibility. Numerous screenings of my film, and of documentaries on the subject, have been canceled on university campuses and elsewhere following phones calls from Chinese diplomats.
...
Hundreds of thousands of people have been murdered and had their organs harvested since the practice was industrialized in 2000. The victims were Chinese citizens who wanted nothing more than to practice their beliefs in peace. Instead, they were killed by their government on an industrial scale.

China Killing Prisoners To Harvest Organs For Transplant: BMC Report Accuses China Of ‘Falsifying’ Data
Zak Doffman

In June, I reported on the China Tribunal in London, which found evidence of "forced organ harvesting" from Chinese prisoners, including Falun Gong and Uighur Muslims. The Tribunal’s final judgment concluded that this "forced organ harvesting has been committed for years... on a significant scale.” China has said that the practice has been outlawed, replaced with a system of voluntary donations. But a new report, published on November 14 in the BMC Medical Ethics journal, has refuted this, alleging that those claims of reform are being supported by the “systematic falsification and manipulation of official organ transplant datasets in China.”

...

BMC article, claiming that China is “artificially manufacturing organ transplant donation data.” The report says its findings mean that any trust in China’s organ harvesting system “has been violated,” that the reforms were “a mask for the continued use of non-voluntary donors or donors who are coerced into giving organs.” In short, the allegation is that the new system of voluntary donations operates alongside and not instead of forced extractions. The giveaway, according to the report, is patterns in the state’s data which are too neat to be genuine—they must be falsified.

Sources behind the forensic data analysis deployed by the report’s authors included the China Organ Transplant Response System (COTRS) and the Red Cross Society of China. Data that found mathematical patterns that defy expected statistical anomalies. In others words, the official China reports emanate from a PR spreadsheet and not from any kind of genuine on the ground analysis and genuine data.

The China Tribunal used first-hand testimony from former detainees and implausible transplant availability and short waiting times to shape its findings. The witness reports were horrific—including organ extractions on live victims, subsequently killed by the procedures. A 2015 documentary claimed China’s illegal organ transplant industry is worth $1 billion each year—but China insists that forced extractions have stopped, that its efforts to reform date back to 2010, with a system of voluntary donations replacing forced organ harvesting from prisoners.

China is harvesting organs from Falun Gong members, finds expert panel
Sonia Elks

4 Min Read

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - China is murdering members of the Falun Gong spiritual group and harvesting their organs for transplant, a panel of lawyers and experts said on Monday as they invited further investigations into a potential genocide.

Members said they had heard clear evidence forced organ harvesting had taken place over at least 20 years in a final judgement from the China Tribunal, an independent panel set up by a campaign group to examine the issue.

Beijing has repeatedly denied accusations by human rights researchers and scholars that it forcibly takes organs from prisoners of conscience and said it stopped using organs from executed prisoners in 2015.

But the panel said it was “satisfied” that the practice was still taking place, with imprisoned Falun Gong members “probably the principal source” of organs for forced harvesting.

It was less clear if the Uighur Muslim minority had been victims, the tribunal found, thought it said they were vulnerable to “being used as a bank of organs”.

“The conclusion shows that very many people have died indescribably hideous deaths for no reason,”
said the tribunal chairman Sir Geoffrey Nice in the judgement.
...
The seven-member panel found it was “beyond doubt” that forced organ harvesting from prisoners has taken place “on a substantial scale by state-supported or approved organizations and individuals” in an interim judgement released in December.
...
“I hope more countries will pass laws to forbid their own citizens from going to China to do organ transplants,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

“And I do hope the international world will figure out a way to stop the killing in China right now.”

China Forcibly Collects Blood From Falun Gong Practitioners, Raising Concerns About Organ Harvesting
By Eva Fu

When Shen Fang, a 70-year-old Falun Gong practitioner living in Shanghai, refused to open the door to four police officers who arrived at her apartment on Aug. 2, they called up a locksmith and broke in. Despite her protests, the four pinned her down, grabbed her wrist, and scratched her hand multiple times to draw her blood.

The blood sampling was “required by the state,” they repeatedly told her.

Extracts from speeches made on September 2nd 2020 in the House of Lords on the Medicines and Medical Devices Bill
2nd Reading

Lord Hunt

Finally, I turn to the abhorrent practice of forced organ harvesting taking place in China today, and to the importance of ensuring that the UK is not in any way complicit in these crimes. In a letter to me last night, the Minister referred to the World Health Organization’s view that China is implementing an ethical voluntary organ transplant system. That is simply not credible, and in fact it is based on a self-assessment by China itself. A much more objective assessment comes from the China Tribunal, which concluded:

“Forced organ harvesting has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale.”


At the moment, human tissue and organs can be imported into the UK from countries such as China without traceability, documentation or consent. Marie Rimmer MP tabled an amendment in the Commons to deal with this. A similar amendment will be tabled here and I very much hope that the Government will agree to it.

China Killing Muslim Prisoners To Harvest ‘Halal’ Organs For Rich Saudis
A new witness report confirms the "slaughter on-demand" of China's Muslim prisoners to provide "Halal" organs for rich Saudi customers.
Author: Zak Doffman

The living scandal of China’s death trade

Xinjiang is an international scandal. China has deployed a dystopian surveillance state that is supported by its thriving surveillance and AI industries. Those technologies are widely exported to the west. The companies behind them count western funds as investors and companies as partners. When the international community has been asked to condemn China’s behavior, much of the Muslim world stays silent.

These latest claims have not yet received much publicity, that will change in the coming days. Yet again, China will be asked to respond and yet again it will not.
...

    A new witness report confirms the “slaughter on-demand” of China’s Muslim prisoners for rich Saudi customers.
    This is part of the country’s $1 billion death trade in forced organ transplants, described as “extreme wickedness.”
Xinjiang has become a hellhole for its Uighur minority.

The extractions were conducted on live victims—the organs had been ordered and paid for in advance. With the paperwork and arrangements in place, the customer traveled from his home in Saudi Arabia to one of a number of hospitals in China. There the operation took place and the transaction was completed.

Quote
There is no evidence of the practice [of prisoner organ harvesting] having been stopped and the tribunal is satisfied that it is continuing. Very many people have died indescribably hideous deaths for no reason, that more may suffer in similar ways and that all of us live on a planet where extreme wickedness may be found in the power of those, for the time being, running a country with one of the oldest civilizations known to modern man.

4 Hearts in 10 Days: China’s ‘On Demand’ Organ Bank Raises Concerns of Forced Harvesting
By Eva Fu
August 11, 2020 Updated: August 14, 2020

Chinese doctors had four hearts on hand for Sun Lingling, a 24-year-old Chinese national who for nine months was on life support.

The 24-year-old fell ill in Japan with a rare autoimmune disease that led to irreversible heart damage. In mid-June, her medical team flew her to China’s Wuhan Union Hospital on a chartered flight. Four heart matches came in the course of 10 days. After a grueling seven-hour surgery, she recovered to the point where she was able to eat on her own.

   More Evidence of ‘Organs on Demand’ System in China
By Wesley J. Smith
August 13, 2020 4:39 PM

China has been repeatedly and credibly accused of organ harvesting the Falun Gong and other political prisoners, usually for the black market, in which rich foreigners needing a transplant travel there and buy their lives at the cost of ending someone else’s. It is an evil trade, and one for which China should be shunned by the international community.

Now, we have even more evidence that China has the ability to obtain organs on demand. A Chinese woman living in Japan was flown there for a heart transplant and was able to have four made available for transplant in ten days. From the Epoch Times story:

“The question is: who is the source for these 4 hearts,” said Dr. Torsten Trey, executive director of the medical ethics advocacy group Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting. In the United States, patients generally waited for around 6.9 months for a matching heart donation, according to the latest government data from 2018. At this rate, to get four matching hearts for the same person—meaning four people who donated their organs after they died at the ICU or in fatal accidents—may take around two years, he noted.
...


Ethics, schmethics. The leaders of a despotism that eschews the sanctity of life, engages in forced labor/slavery to run its industrial manufacturing sector, and crushes religious minorities, aren’t going to worry about (to them) petty limitations such as morality and basic human decency.

China
wanted ‘no escalation’ on hotline call in the day, tried to capture territory at night
Hours before trying to push in 1,000 soldiers near Pangong Tso on 28 August, Chinese PLA had called Indian Army to avoid escalatory action and night patrolling.
Snehesh Alex Philip 9 September, 2020 10:30 pm IST

...
“The Indian and Chinese commanders spoke about not taking any escalatory steps. The Chinese also mentioned that night patrolling should not be done. The moment the Chinese mentioned this, our ears went up, because Chinese words and actions don’t match,” a government source said.
...
Indian troops specialising in mountain warfare raced against time and managed to outflank the Chinese and dominate several heights, giving India strategic hold over the Reqin Pass and Spanggur Gap in the hills in the Chushul sector.
...
Asked about the prospects of war, sources said the forces are on high alert and a small face-off, as has been happening over the last one week, could keep happening.

“Things do build up to a full-blown conflict but so far there have been only pinpricks. The Chinese deployment right now is non-tactical,” a source said.

Tibetan soldier's death near tense India-China border sheds light on covert unit
September 03, 2020

The death of a Tibetan member of an Indian special forces unit in a mine blast near the site of a border flare-up with Chinese troops has offered a rare glimpse into a little-known group of elite, high-altitude warriors.

Tenzin Nyima, 53, was killed and another commando critically wounded in the blast near the shores of the Pangong Tso Lake in the western Himalayas, three Indian government officials and two members of his family told Reuters.
...
Indian and Chinese forces came close to a confrontation in the area over the weekend over competing territorial claims, their governments have said.

Nyima was part of the Special Frontier Force (SFF), his family and three Indian government officials said.

The force recruits mostly from Tibetan refugees, hundreds of thousands of whom have made India their home since the Dalai Lama fled Tibet following a failed uprising in 1959. Some are Indian citizens.

Few details are publicly known about the covert force set up soon after a war between India and China in 1962. Two officials estimated its strength at more than 3,500 men.

‘Mulan’ Has a Message: Serve China and Forget About the Uighurs
Disney’s live-action remake was filmed partly in Xinjiang amid mass human rights abuses.

‘Mulan’ credits reveal ties to China’s horrifying enslavement of Muslims
'Mulan' filmed in a province where Uighur Muslims are detained in concentration camps.
Sep 8, 2020, 7:10 am*

...
Turpan is in the Xinjiang region, where more than a million Muslims have been imprisoned in government-run concentration camps.

It seems that in order to film Mulan in China, Disney collaborated with Xinjiang municipal departments that are currently facilitating the “largest-scale detention of ethnic and religious minorities since World War II” in the region, according to BuzzFeed News. They are part of the reason why it’s so dangerous to be a Muslim in China right now, particularly the Uighur minority ethnic group that mostly lives in Xinjiang. Uighur people have been imprisoned in camps, and there are reports of re-education programs, torture, slave labor, and forced sterilization.

Experts say this falls under the United Nations’ definition of genocide.

Hong Kong parents fight China 'brainwashing'

Hong Kong Teachers Warn Against the CCP Brainwashing Children
VISION TIMES
August 31, 2020

The Hong Kong administration is looking to change the content of textbooks used in liberal studies. The aim is to brainwash children so as to inculcate unquestioning loyalty to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Several teachers’ unions have questioned the changes being made to the textbooks, worrying about the future of their students and the city.

Brainwashing kids

The Education Breakthrough and Progressive Teachers’ Alliance has asked Hong Kong’s education bureau to publicize the standards it has used while revising the textbooks. References to the separation of powers are said to have been deleted from textbooks and teaching materials.

Some textbooks have erased all mention of the Tiananmen Square massacre.

This follows the Hong Kong government’s ban on the Tiananmen massacre commemoration event this year.

“The space between the political red lines in the field of education is going to get smaller and smaller… Whenever a major event occurs and is subject to a crackdown by the [Chinese] government, booksellers will withdraw [books] and revise them to a version that is closer to the government’s view… Liberal Studies textbooks in future will be nothing but a paean to the [Hong Kong] and Chinese governments,” Education Breakthrough spokesman Isaac Cheng said to Radio Free Asia. The organization has identified various issues with the new textbooks and has created a “textbook brainwashing data archive” that has been made publicly available.

The education bureau claims that the textbooks are being revised in response to “biased teaching materials” and last year’s protest movements. It stated that the publishers had “voluntarily” participated in the revisions in order to remove the “inaccurate” sections from the books. The edits are apparently aimed at helping students understand “positive values.” All textbooks and teaching materials are currently being edited to comply with the recently passed National Security Law.

China military show of force near Taiwan has experts asking if island could be the 'next Hong Kong'
Increased Chinese military activity is elevating security concerns over Taiwan's sovereignty

A stream of Chinese fighter jets sliced through Taiwan’s southwest airspace on Wednesday, according to the island’s defense ministry. It was the latest in a string of perceived threats by Beijing in recent weeks.

It comes as Taiwan and the United States appear to draw closer diplomatically – much to Beijing’s ire – and Taipei calls for even more international support amid deepening concerns it could at any moment become the “next Hong Kong.”

In June, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) imposed a sweeping security law in the name of quashing dissent in Hong Kongprompting activists and opposition politicians to flee or face arrest in a fast-moving erosion of freedoms that the financial enclave was supposed to uphold until at least 2047.

Just a quick note.

Its important to create new enemies to feed the sales of the military industrial complex, as its the core of the Deep State.

Now that is out of the way, you can now go back to pretending Trump is fighting the deep state....

...

Writing in the report China: EMP Threat, Dr Pry warns he believes a high-altitude EMP is the "most likely kind of future warfare".

The report lays out suggestions that China have been preparing for such a strike for many years so it can use the capability alongside cyber-attacks.

The task force describes itself as an organisation of "citizens, engineers, field experts, and others, all united in our concern for the American people".

...

Dr Pry warns recent Chinese cyber attacks - should be " regarded as possible practice or preparation for Total Information Warfare—including nuclear HEMP attack".

China has "Super-EMP weapons" which are based on a designs stolen from the US, the report claims.


,...

Dr Pry also claims China's self imposed "no first use" policy on nuclear weapons would not apply when launching an EMP.

He warns: "Chinese military writings are replete with references to making HEMP attacks against the United States as a means of prevailing in war."

The report describes a campaign of "cyber bugs and hacking" as the "tip of the spear" in a Chinese offensive against the US.

The expert compared these information warfare tactics to the "motorcycle troops that preceded the heavy armored divisions in Germany's Blitzkrieg".

Chinese General Who Threatened to Nuke U.S. Leads Delegation to DC

A top general with the Communist dictatorship ruling mainland China, who became infamous in 2005 for threatening to use nuclear weapons to destroy hundreds of U.S. cities, is arriving in Washington, D.C., this week as part of a “military exchange program” between the Obama administration and the mass-murdering Chinese regime. The explosive revelations, first exposed Monday by the Washington Free Beacon, sparked an instant public outcry, with critics slamming the visit as everything from a national security threat to a slap in the face to the American people.

The controversial Communist general and chief of China’s National Defense University, Maj. Gen. Zhu Chenghu (pictured), will lead a military delegation from the regime in Beijing that includes 10 senior colonels from all branches of the dictatorship’s armed forces, according to U.S. officials cited in media reports. A spokesperson for the Department of Defense confirmed that the communist military officers would visit the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., as well as undisclosed locations in Hawaii. 
....

As the Free Beacon’s Bill Gertz noted, however, Zhu was not the first top Chinese military official to suggest that the dictatorship in Beijing would use nuclear weapons against the United States. In 1995, another senior general, Xiong Guangkai, implied that the regime would nuke Los Angeles if the U.S. government decided to defend Taiwan during a conflict, as it is treaty-bound to do.

While the threatened nuclear strikes were downplayed as mere personal remarks, experts have noted that no Chinese official would dare utter such comments without the backing of the regime’s Communist Central Military Commission. The Pentagon, meanwhile, noted in its annual report to Congress on China last year that there still “has been no clarification of the ambiguity” about the circumstances under which the regime would use first-strike nuclear weapons. Plus, neither general was disciplined — indeed, Zhu has since been promoted.

A military General from the Chinese National Defense University says that China should not hesitate to protect Iran, even if it means launching world war three, as more US warships are dispatched to the region amidst heightening tensions.

According to NDTV, a Chinese news station based outside the country, in regard to recent speculation that Iran would be the target of a US-Israeli military assault, Major General Zhang Zhaozhong commented that, “China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a third world war,” remarks described as “puzzling to some”.

The news report also quotes Professor Xia Ming as paraphrasing Zhaozhong’s quote that, “not hesitating to fight a third world war would be entirely for domestic political needs.”

Chinese General threatens U.S. with nuclear weapons over possible Taiwan Strait conflict, Beijing downplays comment
Saturday, July 16, 2005

A General in the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) and dean at the National Defense University in China commented to visiting Hong Kong reporters on Friday that the PLA might use nuclear weapons against the U.S., in a conflict over the Taiwan Strait. "If the Americans draw their missiles and position-guided ammunition onto the target zone on China's territory, I think we will have to respond with nuclear weapons," Maj. Gen. Zhu Chenghu said to the reporters of the Asian Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times. "We Chinese will prepare ourselves for the destruction of all of the cities east of Xian [in central China]. Of course the Americans will have to be prepared that hundreds ... of cities will be destroyed by the Chinese."

U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack called the remarks "highly irresponsible" and "unfortunate", and expressed the hope that they did not reflect the views of the Chinese government.

Echoing the official Xinhua News Agency, the People's Republic of China's Foreign Ministry officials said that Zhu was expressing personal views, and had warned the reporters accordingly, but stated that China would never tolerate "Taiwan independence". Reportedly, Maj. Gen. Zhu is not directly involved in the formulation of Chinese military strategy.

The U.S. may defend Taiwan under the Taiwan Relations Act and is currently Taiwan's largest arms supplier.

China’s air force seems to use video to simulate attack on US air base: report
Published 12 hours ago

The People’s Liberation Army Air Force on Saturday released a video that showed nuclear-capable bombers attacking what appeared to be U.S.'s Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, a report said.

Reuters reported on Sunday that the video, titled, “The god of war H-6K goes on the attack!” is about two minutes long and has dramatic music.

China sent warplanes toward Taiwan for the second day Saturday. Beijing dispatched 19 more warplanes, two of which were bombers, according to Taiwan’s Defense Ministry. The island’s air force scrambled its own and deployed an air defense missile system to monitor China’s activities, according to a statement.

Collin Koh, a research fellow from Singapore’s Insitute of Defense and Strategic Studies, told Reuters that the video is a warning to the U.S. that “even supposedly safe, rearward positions such as Guam may come under threat when conflicts over regional flashpoints,  be it Taiwan or South China Sea erupt.”

Dr. Quack? CDC's Redfield Claims Masks "Guaranteed To Protect Against COVID"
...
In the February hearing, Redfield told Americans not to buy medical-grade masks, saying there’s “no role for these masks in the community.”

There remains zero evidence that cloth masks or the earloop masks displayed by Redfield helps to slow the spread of COVID-19 or protect the wearer from infection. No country in the world has proven a link in slowing or stopping the spread due to mask wearing mandates, which are in effect in countless nations.

Given the lack of demonstrated evidence supporting it, mask-wearing has become a cult-like religious movement in the United States, one that relies on complete subservience to total mysticism. Members of the mask movement frequently target Americans who engage in non-compliance, likening these individuals to evil, plague-carrying menaces. Redfield’s testimony will only add fuel to the mask mania that is sowing discord in America.

China’s oppression of Tibetans has dramatically increased
4 February 2016
Emily Walker
China Tibet

The country fears that if they don’t completely crush any form of protest they will lose control. Emily Walker reports.

‘They would hang me up for several hours with my hands tied to a rope…once I was beaten continuously for two days with nothing to eat nor a drop of water to drink,’ said Labrang Jigme, a Tibetan monk arrested for peaceful protesting in Tibet. ‘The second time I was unconscious for six days unable to open my eyes or speak a word.’

Upon being released, Jigme was forced to sign a document stating that he was not tortured.
...

Over 6,000 monasteries have been destroyed and those survived are not being used by monks, but ironically, are used as spiritual attractions for – mostly Chinese – tourists while they tighten Tibetans’ religious freedom. Areas that were once spiritual spots and pure nature are used as nuclear waste sites. Worst of all, Tibetans do not have freedom of speech, religion or movement. Many passports have been recalled and the borders are closed, trapping Tibetans in the country as their culture and land diminishes.

‘They are destroying our people, beautiful culture, and land,’ said social worker and Tibetan refugee, Sonam Sangpo.

According to International Campaign for Tibet (ICT), massive peaceful protests in 2008 led to an intensive crackdown on the country with more than 600 Tibetans imprisoned and approximately 150 self-immolations – Tibetans light themselves on fire as an individual form of protests against oppression.
...
‘Instead of trying to assess why Tibetans self-immolate and change the situation, they come down harder and more fierce each time.’
...
Recent evidence shows that there has been a significant increase of Tibetan political prisoners since the protests, and torture has become more widespread than ever. Because of these outstanding cases, in November 2015, the United Nations Committee against Torture (CAT) met with China officials and asked them to account for ‘deeply entrenched’ torture and ill treatment, according to a published report by ICT.
...
For example, when ICT brought forward torture devices that were used on prisoners, Chinese officials argued they were made comfortable with cushions so they could no longer be considered torture devices.

‘We had a Tibetan monk who was able to escape prison, testify and show examples of the torture devices that were used on him,’ Jampa said. ‘Chinese officials refused to acknowledge this case and many other cases brought before them.’
...
Another case brought before CAT included a Tibetan man who was shot and killed while trying to intervene on behalf of an elderly monk who was beaten with an iron rod in the prison. The elderly man later died of what Chinese officials called ‘natural causes’ even though his body showed obvious signs of torture and brutal beatings.

China refused to acknowledge these cases  ( sounds like babygrid ... )
...
‘The Dalai Lama is not asking that the Chinese leave, we know it is too late for that,’ Sangpo said. ‘He is simply asking that Tibetans have the same rights and freedom as the Chinese have. We all ask for that and for the preservation of our beautiful culture.’

Flu shot mandate opponents prepare class-action lawsuit against Massachusetts

BOSTON, (WWLP) – Some Massachusetts residents are pushing back on Governor Charlie Baker’s flu shot mandate.

Opponents of the flu shot mandate say this is a huge overreach on the government’s part and now, they’re planning on taking their case to court. A private Facebook group called ‘Flu you Baker’ is currently collecting signatures of people who oppose the mandate.

The group, with more than 10,000 members, intends to file a class-action lawsuit against the state. Last week, Gov. Baker stood by the mandate citing public health concerns as a reason for putting it in place now.

“From a care delivery point of view, from a capacity point of view, having the flu and COVID-19 surge in the Commonwealth at exactly the same time would be an incredibly difficult situation,” Gov. Baker said.

The governor is asking that all students ages six months and up receive the flu vaccine by the end of the year.

A second rally opposing the mandate is scheduled to be held in Boston sometime in early October.

The Solution to India’s China Problem: A Free Tibet
The time has come for India to stand up to China by supporting Tibet’s nonviolent movement for independence.
By Tenzin Tsundue & Sandeep Pandey • Sep 11, 2020

....
In 70 years of Chinese occupation, more than 1 million Tibetans have been killed, 6,000 monasteries destroyed and Tibet’s cultural identity attacked. The Chinese have also proceeded to exploit Tibet’s natural resources. They have cleared forests, bombed mountains and practice strip mining for gold, copper, lithium and other rare earth elements.

Long Ignored

The international community has ignored the genocide and exploitation Tibet has experienced over the last seven decades. Powerful nations have made their peace with China for geopolitical and economic reasons. In the process, Tibetans have suffered a lot.

Globalization has led over 160 countries trading with China. Western “liberal democrats” blindly accept the “One-China” policy and recognize Tibet as a part of China. Freed of any external pressure, China has become more oppressive in Tibet. Even possessing the Dalai Lama’s photo could land a Tibetan in jail on charges of separatism. Although Tibetan youth do not retaliate like their counterparts in Palestine or Kashmir, they have resorted to self-immolation as a form of protest against Chinese occupation.

Tibetans still believe that freedom is possible. Until six decades ago, Confucianism and Buddhism were the strongest influences on Chinese society. Communism attacked these twin pillars. Capitalism has shaken them further. Today, the only religion consumerist China worships is money. Yet, as the Chinese are discovering, life is more than money. Tibetans are convinced that China will never be able to conquer their spirit and that they are free until their spirit is free.

During visits of Chinese leaders, Indian police customarily arrest all Tibetan activists to appease China.

China 'coercing' thousands of Tibetans into mass labour camps - report
23 September 2020

China is coercing hundreds of thousands of people in Tibet into military-style training centres that experts say are akin to labour camps, a study has said.


The report by the Jamestown Foundation is based on state media reports, policy documents and satellite imagery which Reuters news agency has corroborated.

The study also compares the situation to what has been documented among ethnic Uighurs in the Xinjiang region.

Chinese authorities have not yet commented on the findings.


What are the findings of the study?

The report, authored by Adrian Zenz, an independent Tibet and Xinjiang researcher, says that 500,000 people, mostly subsistence farmers and herders, were trained in the first seven months of 2020 and authorities have set quotas for the mass transfer of those workers within Tibet and to other parts of China.

According to Chinese government plans that have been cited, the training schemes are to develop "work discipline, Chinese language and work ethics".

,... calling for "unspecified measures to effectively eliminate 'lazy people'."

What are the comparisons to Xinjiang?

The report says the programme bears resemblances to labour schemes in the troubled Xinjiang province where Chinese authorities are accused of the mass detention of the mostly Muslim Uighur population.

"In both Xinjiang and Tibet, state-mandated poverty alleviation consists of a top-down scheme that extends the government's social control deep into family units," it says.

In Xinjiang, China is accused of arbitrarily detaining hundreds of thousands of Muslims - while Beijing says the camps are vocational schools needed to combat terrorism and religious extremism.

Chen Quanguo: The Man Who Silenced Tibet Is Perfecting a Police State in Xinjiang, China

China is perfecting a police state targeting its Muslims in Xinjiang
The man behind it is Chen Quanguo
Quanguo developed his grid-system of surveillance in Tibet
The international community has remained silent on Quanguo's crackdown

By Ty Joplin

One of the most advanced and penetrative police states in the world is being deployed quietly in Xinjiang, China. The exact method of controlling Xinjiang is not a new dystopian nightmare but rather one tested and proven in Tibet and invented by one man: Chen Quanguo.

...

But the exact method of controlling Xinjiang is not a new dystopian nightmare but rather one tested and proven in Tibet and invented by one man: Chen Quanguo.

Quanguo’s preferred method of repression is to divide up restive regions with a grid system, putting police stations near each other at regular intervals in addition to pitting households against each other in the name of counter-terrorism.
...
rom a humble background in Henan, China, Chen Quanguo slowly worked himself through the CCP’s bureaucracy to become the Party Secretary of Tibet. He went on to govern the region for five years, between 2011 and 2016.

Tibetans have their own ethnicity, culture and language that is distinct from Han China, and was only formally integrated into the state of China after an armed dispute with the Tibet government and the Dalai Lama in the 1950s. Tibetans resisted attempts by the CCP to exert more control over the region, but their resistance crumbled under the rule of Quanguo.

Seeking to pacify Tibet entirely, Quanguo developed a strategy of surveillance that has since become a blueprint for a successful surveillance and police state. Shortly after taking power, he began to divide Tibet up using a grid-system, placing small police stations at regular intervals around the entire region to establish an inter-locked, pervasive security presence. He also assigned households to spy on each other, calling it the “double-linked household management system.”

...

In addition, Quanguo began constructing the flow of information. He moved to stifle independent news sources and replaced them with CCP-loyal outlets. He saturated Tibetan TV with new channels dedicated to CCP propaganda and made sure those who had satellite TVs had a fixed reception to the CCP channels.

By the end of 2016, Quanguo had built over 700 of the small police stations, which are called ‘convenience police stations,’ and maintained 81,140 ‘double-linked households’ that covered three million Tibetans.

...

In 2016, he was assigned to be party head of Xinjiang. He wasted no time applying his grid-system to crack down on millions of Uyghur and Kazakh Muslims living in the area.

...

Then U.S. ambassador to China Gary Locke (left) talks with then Tibet party secretary Chen Quanguo in Lhasa, Tibet’s regional capital in 2013  (AFP/US State Department Photo)

he ongoing crackdown in Xinjiang has only begun to make headlines in major media outlets. U.S. officials have begun to call for action against China, and the U.N. published a report condemning China’s repression of Uyghur Muslims. Apart from this however, the international community has largely overlooked Xinjiang, even as the technology and governmental techniques developed in the region are beginning to be exported across the world.

...

In Tibet, Quanguo was allowed to invent a new type of police state with no international repercussions apart from rhetorical calls for China to investigate its own governmental policies. It remains to be seen whether the international community will meaningfully respond to his revamped Xinjiang crackdown.

Hong Kong pro-democracy lawmakers resign en masse after Beijing moves to quash dissent
Helen Regan byline
By Helen Regan, Ben Westcott and Jadyn Sham, CNN
CNN Digital Expansion 2017. Ben Westcott

Hong Kong (CNN)The entirety of Hong Kong's elected pro-democracy opposition announced its intention to resign Wednesday in protest over the expulsion of four lawmakers, after Beijing passed a resolution giving local authorities broad new powers to quash dissent.

The resolution, passed by China's highest legislative body, allows Hong Kong's executive to expel elected lawmakers directly without having to go through the courts, cementing Beijing's control and likely signaling the end of organized political opposition in the semi-autonomous territory.

Under the new ruling, lawmakers who are deemed to promote or support Hong Kong independence, or who refuse to acknowledge Beijing's sovereignty, will "immediately lose their qualifications," the resolution said.

It also applies to elected lawmakers who "seek foreign forces to intervene in the affairs of Hong Kong, or who have endangered national security" and who "fail to uphold the Basic Law" -- the city's mini constitution -- as well as those who are deemed "not loyal to the legal requirements and conditions" of the territory.

At a press conference announcing the mass resignation on Wednesday, Dennis Kwok, one of the four disqualified lawmakers, said that Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam had "sought to turn the Legislative Council into a one party system."

"It is ridiculous that the government has completely given up the Basic Law and 'One Country Two Systems'," he said. "The Legislative Council has the responsibility to check the government."

Chinese troops used 'microwave' weapons to force Indian soldiers to retreat by making them violently sick during a Himalayan stand-off, a professor has claimed. 

The electromagnetic weapons which cook the human tissue of enemy troops 'turned the mountain tops into a microwave oven' and made the Indian soldiers vomit, international studies expert Jin Canrong told his students in Beijing. 

The microwave weapons heat water molecules in the same way as the kitchen appliance, targeting water under the skin and causing increasing amounts of pain to the target from ranges of up to 0.6 miles away.

Jin hailed the Chinese forces for 'beautifully' executing the move which cleared out Indian troops without violating a ban on gunfire along the disputed border.

It is the first known use of microwave weapons on a battlefield.

According to The Times, the weapons were said to have been deployed in late August, weeks after a deadly brawl involving rocks and clubs which killed at least 20 Indian soldiers and brought the two nuclear-armed powers closer to war than they have been in 53 years on one of the world's highest-altitude battlefields.
