China on high alert over Omicron as Olympics nears; Experts: lockdowns interrupting China economy​



Two Omicron cases in a near-by city put Beijing on high alert. It's weeks before the Winter Olympics start. A rare and courageous move. A Xi'an resident uses his real name in a video to criticize the lockdown measures, saying the authorities 'treat people like livestock.' Some English signs in Beijing subways and airports are replaced by Chinese Pinyin. Foreigners won't be able to understand them. But some say it's part of Xi Jinping's effort to show 'cultural self confidence.' The Chinese regime has named a new commander for its military force in Hong Kong. The man used to lead the crackdown on Xinjiang’s ethnic minorities. And U.S. chip company Intel appears to be walking back on a statement; where they called on partners to avoid sourcing from China’s Xinjiang. This is after getting backlash from China.

China ramps up tougher pandemic control; 'Avoid Chinese meat': Germany warns Olympians​




The U.S. says it won’t be deterred by China’s latest sanctions. Beijing recently penalized four American officials serving on a religious freedom commission. The move came after the U.S. levied its own sanctions. China plans to keep a steep tariff in place for at least another year. The tax impacts a certain U.S. product–and dates back to the Trump era. Stay away from Chinese meats. That’s the suggestion Germany’s Anti-Doping Agency made to athletes, as they venture to Beijing for the Winter Olympics. Taiwan offers a billion-dollar credit program to support projects in Lithuania. That’s after the island announced a $200 million investment fund, to help the Baltic country counter pressure from Beijing. And lockdown orders tighten in China. 35 million people are under stay-at-home orders, as cases of the Omicron and Delta variants paralyze certain cities.

Lithuania: Europe should stand up to China; Spying fears: UK Olympians offered new phones​



Cybersecurity is on the docket ahead of the #BeijingWinterOlympics. The British Olympics Association is offering new smartphones to its athletes—to block personal data from landing in the communist regime’s hands. In Beijing, police are greeting early arrivals to the Games. Officers then accompany the visitors straight from the airport to a closed area where they’re met with a set of strict policies. For Chinese residents, lockdown orders are still in full force in #XianCity. With meat and other food supplies becoming more scarce as people are forced to stay home, one local asks his neighbors for an unusual favor. Amid Xi’an’s wide-reaching shutdown, state workers vowed to deliver food door to door. But for those who do receive groceries, there may be a catch. Citizens must thank the Communist Party, sometimes on film, before the food is handed over. And outside China, Lithuania defends itself while under fire from Beijing. It's calling on other European nations to stand up to Chinese aggression.

Live Q&A: China Reports Community Transmission of Hemorrhagic Fever; Biden Has His “Worst Week”​



It appears another virus is spreading in China, that allegedly has patients bleeding from bodily openings including the eyes and ears. Reports from Xi’an, where the government has locked down a city of 13 million people, and where there are reports of nearing starvation, claim there are now signs of community transmission of hemorrhagic fever. The state-run Global Times reported on this, and claimed the regime is urging quick vaccinations to stop the virus spread. Meanwhile, reports are saying President Joe Biden just had his “worst week” in office. The Supreme Court ruled against his OSHA mandate in a 6 to 3 vote, striking down his mandatory vaccine policy for companies with 100 or more employees. This also included rulings that reign in the powers of the President, in line with Congress and State powers. Democrats in the Senate were considering killing the filibuster, but Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema made it clear she wouldn’t vote for it. Inflation hit a 40-year high, and this is coming along with reports of empty store shelves and increases in food prices. Biden’s approval rating, meanwhile, has been collapsing, going from 50 percent, and plummeting to low 40 and 30 percentages. Fauci is also about as popular, with only about 31 percent of Americans saying they believe him on the pandemic. And as this happens, Democrats are now talking about bringing back Hillary Clinton as their main contender in the 2024 presidential elections.
