Chinese star accuses ex-official of sexual assault; Food buying frenzy in eastern China​



A sexual assault allegation takes the Chinese internet by storm. One of China’s biggest sports players is accusing a former top official of sexual misconduct. Reports say people in China are stocking up on essentials, while Chinese state-owned media outlets are spreading fake news about Taiwan, saying island residents are panic-buying over fear of a war. Combating a pandemic isn’t an easy task, but for residents in one Chinese city, leaving town isn’t either. One young woman tells her story after a 7-month ordeal. Yahoo is leaving China, completely. An expert says U.S. companies like Yahoo cannot afford China’s censorship. China’s reported hypersonic missile test surprises the United States. But according to a former Defense Department official, this is not enough to serve as a wake-up call.

NBA’s Kanter slams CCP over forced organ harvesting; UN seeks info on missing Chinese tennis star​



In the thick of preparing for the Winter Olympics, Beijing is suffering from a scandal exposed by a top Chinese athlete. The United Nations is concerned about her whereabouts—and an international tennis association is considering cutting business ties with China. NBA player Enes Kanter is speaking out, pointing the spotlight on the widespread killing of Chinese prisoners of conscience for their organs. U.S. President Joe Biden is considering a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Olympics, meaning U.S. government officials wouldn’t attend, though American athletes would still compete. Beijing rolls out new technology for use in its Xinjiang region. It’s a kind of emotion sensor, reportedly used to detect potential terrorists. A top university in Europe is found to be leaking technology to China’s military, all because of one staff member there.

Chinese tennis star returns amid further worries; US project to develop hypersonic defense tech​


Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai reappears after vanishing from the public eye. The International Olympic Committee confirmed her whereabouts, but her return is only prompting more doubts. Reporters or special agents? Some Chinese reporters appear to be tasked with special objectives. One professor, who worked in China, shares details about his unexpected interactions with them. A new U.S. project, aimed at countering Chinese military aggression, will develop new technology to defend against weapons that could bring nuclear warheads to America. China calls Australia “naughty,” while Australia responds by calling China “silly” and “funny,” over nuclear submarines.

‘Happy’ Peng Shuai Videos & Photos Raise More Suspicions; Why IOC Accepts China’s ‘Peng’ Propaganda​



“She is safe and well...but would like to have her privacy respected at this time,” the IOC relays this message, apparently from Peng Shuai. Certainly, in many of the videos recently released by Chinese Communist Party media, she is smiling. But, I think I would find a way to smile for the cameras too, if my life depended on it. The world-champion Chinese tennis player leveled an allegation of unprecedented magnitude against one of the Party’s untouchables: Zhang Gaoli, who once held a position equivalent to Vice President. Her explosive post on Weibo (i.e., China’s Twitter) was rapidly “disappeared,” not long before her account was also gone. Then she was gone. She’s seen for the first time now in videos in which she’s oddly silent, though seeming to enjoy herself. But what of the allegations that she’s risked her safety and career to make? With all the attention on her reemergence, what of the retired CCP official who used his power to exploit her, only to later discard her? And what about these videos of Peng Shuai “safe,” with mysterious elements that raise more suspicion than they put to rest.

NBA Star Tackles China’s Human Rights Abuse; How the Peng Shuai Scandal Could Impact Beijing 2022​



“Where is Peng Shuai?” Pressure upon the Chinese Communist Party to present legitimate proof that Peng Shuai is safe and free to speak continues to mount. By and large, the seemingly-choreographed photos and videos that the Party has released have failed to quell international concern. If anything, they’ve added to suspicions that Peng is under house arrest and surveillance by the CCP. Alongside championing the #WhereIsPengShuai cause; NBA star, Enes Kanter, is brazenly adding attention to other CCP violations. The most horrendous of these has persisted for decades. Government’s around the world remain complicit in its coverup. But as the recent history of the CCP reveals, no crime can remain hidden forever.

Getting answers From China on its ‘Disappeared Dissidents;’ Is China in Economic Crisis?​



Citizen journalist, Zhang Zhan has been jailed since May 2020 for filming and reporting on the COVID-19 pandemic from Wuhan. Chinese human-rights lawyer, Gao Zhisheng, who has long defended activists and the civil rights of religious minorities, has been ‘disappeared’ since 2017. What ‘point of leverage’ could the world use to compel the Chinese Communist Party (or CCP) to free or ‘undisappear’ such people? What might compel it to let international tennis star, Peng Shuai, speak freely after her accusations of exploitation against a retired CCP official? Pulling off a successful Winter Olympics is a crucial component in the enduring prominence of the CCP and in Xi Jinping’s aspirations for re-election next year. However, increasing global scrutiny of its exploitation of women and broader human rights violations could be a ‘spanner-in-the-works’ of the Party’s Beijing 2022 ambitions. What are the signs of a faltering Chinese economy that could also disrupt the success of this rapidly approaching global event?

Peng Shuai denies making sexual assault allegation; 4 killed in highway bridge collapse in China​



The pandemic isn’t the only disease plaguing China. State media outlets are reporting an outbreak of hemorrhagic fever in a northwestern province. Tennis player Peng Shuai reemerges after vanishing for weeks. But she’s now singing a different tune, walking back on the statement that started it all. Now, she claims she never accused anyone of sexually assaulting her. Beijing is asking German auto-part maker Continental to turn away from Lithuania. It's one of dozens of German companies Beijing is trying to sway. Unease is rippling through many of China’s biggest industries, as tens of thousands lose their jobs. Tech, education, real estate are all hurting and trying to cope with the Chinese regime’s clampdown. A voice from a Hong Kong activist highlights those willing to fight for democracy—even at great personal risk.
