The Chinese Communist Party are unprepared to actually do anything for their citizens. They are so focused on ensuring that their citizens are captive to their ideology that when it comes to actual activities of their citizens, they couldn't figure out the difference between what is appropriate - they really don't care and will desperately do what they figure they should do. What they could have done to either prevent what happened or mitigate what happened they don't have a clue and/or they don't care. They're too power hungry so that what happens to the average Chinese doesn't matter. That's what authoritarian governments do - cover their asses b'cuz they don't care about the average citizen.

Authorities destroy river dikes amid floods; Missing husband found dead: flooded Chinese subway​



Chinese authorities send excavators to destroy a river bank in Henan province. But when locals tried to stop them, they got doused by pepper spray and had their cars smashed. Civilian rescue teams are taking matters into their own hands. They say authorities failed to provide enough disaster aid. Residents lay flowers at the entrance of a flooded subway station in China’s Henan province. Authorities set up barricades there—attracting online criticism. Beijing cracks down on private companies, sending shockwaves through stock markets, and sparking fear among American traders. And Hong Kong moves one step closer to Communist China. The first person charged under the city’s national security law has been found guilty of terrorism and inciting secession. That’s over actions related to Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement.

15-year-old survivor: horrors of a flooded subway; Red cross accused of embezzling donations​



A 15-year-old survivor is opening up after escaping a flooded subway in China. She says dozens of people died in front of her while trapped inside—and even more remains were seen lying on the subway platform afterward. Flooded subway cars in Zhengzhou city are taken away, with black cloth covering the windows. Netizens are questioning what the authorities are hiding. New evidence has emerged surrounding China’s flood disasters. A video online shows Chinese authorities clashing with locals, who say the troops came to destroy local river embankments. China’s Red Cross faces a serious accusation. A businessman says the organization embezzled thousands in donation funding. American investors are rushing to divest from Chinese companies in the health sector, as fears rise that Beijing’s crackdown on private companies will hit the medical industry next.

Man attacked for filming subway mourners; US bill bans maps showing Taiwan as part of China​



A man in China’s Zhengzhou city was brutally attacked by what appear to be plainclothes police officers as the man captures a video of mourners gathering to pay respects after the city’s subway #FloodDisaster. Heavy rain and bad management aren’t the only reasons behind the subway tunnel flood. An expert warned about another risk years ago, but the concern wasn’t taken seriously. Authorities in one of China’s flood-hit cities turned the area’s electricity back on without warning. As a result, volunteers suffer severe electrical shocks while rescuing people from the floods. A Taliban delegation is now visiting China and meeting with top officials there. The United States hardens its stance toward Beijing. The House passes a motion involving maps that show Taiwan as part of China.

Subway station flooded in southern Chinese city; Cyberattacks From China | China in Focus​



A Chinese subway station floods after heavy rain. It’s the second one to end up submerged recently—following the disaster in Zhengzhou city. In Tokyo, Chinese athletes are winning lots of medals. But instead of celebrating, they’re apologizing—for not taking home gold. Some say the "gold medals only" mentality is pushing Chinese athletes over the edge. And, people in Beijing are panic buying en masse. That's amid fears of an upcoming pandemic outbreak. And Beijing isn't the only city affected. ⏩Special report on #EpochTV: For years, cyberattacks have been a huge headache for the U.S. and its allies. Now for the first time, they're formally calling out one of the biggest sources in charge behind the scenes. “The U.S. is joining allies around the world to call out the Chinese government for a series of cyber intrusions," CBS This Morning reported. Randy Grossman, Acting U.S. Attorney, Southern District of California said "This prosecution is unique. This case is about a cyber hacking and economic espionage campaign led by the government of China." In a special report, we look at just who are these Chinese hackers... How the regime uses the attacks to achieve their strategic goals... “Unsurprisingly, the intrusions targeted industries outlined in the made in China 2025 plan- China's ten-year plan for targeting strategic advanced technology manufacturing industries for development," Grossman added. How Beijing is building a massive database —full of details about average Americans. “We're talking about health histories, their criminal histories… Social Security numbers, biometric fingerprints,” PBS News Hour reported. And what tools the U.S. has to stop it.

‘What China does is your responsibility’: Dr. Corr on US investing in China | China in Focus​





In this special episode, we sat down with two guests. Dr. Anders Corr, publisher of the Journal of Political Risk, delves into two of his exclusive articles. One reveals just how much money U.S. investors have poured into China since 1992—a whopping $2.3 trillion. He sheds light on the moral and ethical concerns around that. Corr said, “The more that this data is coming out, actually, the more Wall Street is questioning, I believe, some of their investments, and whether these investments can keep going without crashing. Just this last week, the Shanghai stock index has dropped over 6 percent, which is a really big drop. I think that the investors are getting very jittery about China at this point. They’re a bit worried because of that drop—this week’s drop—and you actually do see in the news quite a bit. Now, some concerns … because the government can take your investments in two seconds. And we’ve seen that, that the Chinese Communist Party has no qualms about taking DiDi apart, taking Jack Ma apart, and financial Alibaba. These companies are small companies to that. They’re little ants to be squished for the Chinese Communist Party, they [the CCP] really don’t care. If you’re a billionaire, or a multimillionaire, they will take your money if they can, or if they deem that it’s good for the Party.”

China’s largest desert flooded by heavy rain; Delta strain spreads, Chinese cities shut down​



Heavy rains and melting snow soak China’s largest desert. The flooding drenched over 100 square miles. A video showing positive relations between Chinese citizens and the military is raising eyebrows. One item seen in the clip seems to reveal a different narrative than the video supports. A Canadian citizen has been detained in China on suspicion of rape. He’s been identified as a Chinese-born pop singer. Surveys reveal that the world view on Beijing seems to be changing—and not in favor of the communist regime. Now, millions have signed a petition aimed at ending China’s Communist Party.

Chinese authorities blow up dam, flood town; Wuhan tests 12 million after Delta variant found​



Chinese authorities blow up a dam, flooding several villages—in order to protect wealthier areas. What’s more, authorities banned all rescue efforts in the name of the pandemic. China’s flood season isn’t over yet, and an epidemic already seems to be around the corner. Amid the water-logging and damages, a number of villages are now hugely contaminated by dead livestock. Wuhan plans to test all of its 12 million residents for the virus. The city is facing a new round of rigorous pandemic prevention measures. American Airlines is offering some customers 30 minutes of free access to TikTok. But cybersecurity experts warn that Beijing has used the video app to spy on Americans. A nuclear power plant in China shuts down one of its reactors to fix a leak, more than a month after the problem was first announced to the public.

Flooded county asks for disinfectant online; US Navy conducts biggest exercise in 40 years​



China’s flood season isn’t over yet. Amid the water-logging and damages, a number of villages are now hugely contaminated by dead livestock. The U.S. Navy holds massive military exercises, spanning two-thirds of the world, as the army cooperates with Indonesia in a drill in Southeast Asia. Meanwhile, four Indian warships head toward the South China Sea for military exercises, and Germany is also sending a warship for the first time in two decades. More people are fleeing China. The number of Chinese asylum seekers reaches record heights, with many taking refuge in democratic nations. China violates its Phase One trade deal with the United States. Beijing quietly ordered its state-owned companies to buy certain items locally, including those that China promised to buy more of from the United States.

Biden approves first arms sale to Taiwan; Flood-hit city faces harsh pandemic lockdown​



The highly contagious Delta variant of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus is challenging China. In the flood-hit city of Zhengzhou, a total lockdown leaves residents short on food at home. Some were spotted shouting for help from their buildings. Trust in Chinese-made vaccines seems low in China. Authorities are using every strategy to get people vaccinated—including incentives like cash rewards. For outside China, Chinese Communist Party head Xi Jinping promised to provide 2 billion doses of CCP virus vaccines to other countries this year. The Biden administration approves its first arms sale to Taiwan. The transaction is valued at $750 million. American investors are worried, as Beijing cracks down on Chinese-owned companies. We look into what’s behind the effort.

Warren Rothman: A Dark Picture for the Future of China | CLIP | American Thought Leaders​


The future of China is “a dark picture, overall,” says Warren Rothman, a Yale graduate who is once a lawyer at an elite law firm in China. But “there is some hope,” he says, adding that the only thing blocking change is the elites that have been captured by the CCP. Rothman says that very few people actually benefit from business with China, except for elites and large corporations, and that the American people should hold China accountable for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Flooding strikes southwestern China; Delta variant surge: Chinese city tops infection rates​



China mandates strict prevention measures against the latest #DeltaVariant surge. Questions are rising over the Chinese Communist Party’s “zero tolerance” lockdown strategy and if it’s actually working. A video emerges from China’s new virus hotspot. Rumors circulating online say a student there died shortly after getting a dose of a #ChineseMadeVaccine. China’s “bat woman” scientist warns of more deadly COVID-19 variants to come. She’s the researcher behind Wuhan’s controversial virus lab. In the United States, Dr. Anthony Fauci gave a similar warning. Locals say authorities in one Chinese city released water from nearby reservoirs without warning, flooding the area in the middle of the night. It’s the second report of its kind. China’s antitrust regulators are investigating top American investment firm Blackstone over its $3 billion deal with one of China’s largest real estate developers.

Beijing: 1st pulmonary anthrax case in 10 years; Police break into classroom amid tutoring ban​



New details have emerged about China’s mass quarantine strategy. Some quarantine cells don’t even have beds—forcing seniors and a young mother with a toddler to sit upright all night. A growing number of Chinese residents say their contact tracking health codes are malfunctioning—showing a clean bill of health one minute, and then signs of possible infection minutes later. As China battles its latest Delta-driven virus outbreak, another deadly disease is discovered in the country—with a fatality rate of over 80 percent. It’s the disease’s first human infection in China in 10 years. A Chinese court upholds a Canadian man’s death sentence, while in Canada, lawyers make a final push to prevent a Chinese woman from being extradited to the United State.

Documentary: The American Dream Takes On China Inc. Part Two: The Clean Network | Zooming In China​



This movie tells the story of the Clean Network Alliance of Democracies, created by Under Secretary of State Keith Krach to defeat the CCP’s master plan to dominate global 5G. The first government-led initiative that proved China Inc. is beatable by exposing its biggest weakness—lack of trust. The Clean Network stands as a proven, replicable model to counter the CCP’s global economic aggression and a vital beachhead to launch initiatives to bolster U.S. leadership & allies across a broad array of strategic technologies vital to our future. The Clean Network proved to be a winning bipartisan formula adopted by the Biden Administration as a global brand, well-positioned to challenge the CCP’s hegemonic ambitions across every critical economic realm. The Wall Street Journal calls Clean Network an undisputed success and perhaps the most enduring foreign policy legacy of the last 4 years. According to Bloomberg, Tech Titan Krach harnessed the power of a network of nations to counter China—a notable change in tone after years in which the administration pursued a go-it-alone strategy.
