Chinese Scholars’ Decisions and Fates at the Crossroads of History

Sept. 7, 2020 | By Shixiang (Minghui.org)


History is a good lesson for us to learn. When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was about to take over mainland China 70 years ago, Chinese scholars faced a dilemma: staying with the CCP or leaving with Kuomintang, going to Taiwan?

Some chose to leave, such as Hu Shih, former Chinese Ambassador to the United States (1938 to 1942). They were able to maintain their personal integrity and continue passing on the idea of freedom in the free world. Some chose to stay such as Chen Yinke, one of the greatest Chinese historians at the time. They ended up suffering never-ending political movements and losing academic freedom, human dignity, or even their lives.

Reflecting on their stories, one can learn that when dealing with the CCP, it is important to see through its true nature instead of trusting the rosy picture that it paints.

Hu Shih’s Cry

By the end of 1948, the CCP had been prevailing in the civil war against the Kuomintang, then ruling party in China who had led China to win in WWII. The Kuomintang government sent three airplanes to evacuate famous scholars from Beijing, as it was losing the battles in northern China.

Hu Shih was one of the most renowned Chinese philosophers and essayists. He had also served as China’s Ambassador to the U.S., president of Peking University, and later president of the Academia Sinica in Taipei. He was at Nanjing, the capital city of the Kuomintang government, when the evacuation planes were deployed. The plan was to pick up some scholars from Beijing, then more in Nanjing, before taking them to Taiwan.

Hu went to the airport to join those scholars from Beijing. When the door of the first airplane was opened, he was shocked to see it was empty. The second plane was empty again... Out of the 81 most renowned scholars in Beijing to be evacuated, only 22 took the offer, with 10 going to Taiwan with the Kuomintang government and 12 to the U.S. or Europe. The remaining 59 chose to remain in Beijing.

Hu wept openly at the airport, as if he could foresee the gloomy future for those who chose to stay with the CCP.

Leaving the CCP

The CCP had tried to keep Hu in Beijing before he went to Nanjing, for his great influence in academia and politics. Mao Zedong, then CCP’s top leader, sent Hu a message that he could serve as president of Beijing Library if he chose to remain in the mainland. Hu’s student Wu Han, a high-ranking CCP official, also sent a messenger to ask Hu to stay.

Hu answered with one sentence, “Don’t believe the CCP!”

He also asked the messenger to tell Wu Han, “The Soviet Union has bread but no freedom; the United States of America has both bread and freedom; but when the CCP comes, there is neither bread nor freedom.”

In as early as 1919, Hu had recognized that “Marxism and socialism are just self-deceptive dreams.” In 1946, Hu wrote an article “On Two Fundamentally Different Parties,” stating that there are two fundamentally different types of parties: one is the party in the U.K., U.S., and Western Europe, and the other is the communist party in the Soviet Union, the Fascist Party in Italy, and the Nazi Party in Germany. The two types divide at the line of freedom vs. non-freedom, independence vs. non-independence, and tolerance vs. intolerance.

Despite the CCP’s repeated invitation, Hu left the CCP and went to Taiwan.

Fu Sinian was considered one of the best scholars in Chinese history and literature studies in the 20th century. In July 1945, he and a few scholars visited Yan’an, a northwestern city that served as the CCP’s headquarters. He had a private conversation with Mao Zedong for a night. However, unlike some other scholars who praised the Yan’an trip, Fu thought the system of Yan’an was pure despotism and obscurantism. He found that Mao was very familiar with all kinds of novels, especially those of poor-taste, and that Mao used those materials to study the psychology of the people to control them.

Thus, Fu did not hesitate to leave mainland China and later served as president of National Taiwan University.

Qian Mu, one of the “Four Modern Historians” in China, was another master-level scholar who had a clear understanding of the CCP. After the CCP army crossed the Yangtze River to attack the Kuomintang in south China in April 1949, Qian Jibo, a scholar specialized in classic Chinese literature, suggested that Qian Mu remain in the mainland.

Qian Mu asked Qian Jibo, “You have been studying literature. Can you see any attitude of generosity and tolerance in the CCP’s official announcement of crossing the Yangtze River?”

Qian Jibo was silent.

Mao Zedong wrote that announcement. From it, Qian Mu read that Mao would not tolerate anyone with different opinions, and thus he chose to leave mainland China. He continued his teaching in Hong Kong and mentored many students.

Staying with the CCP

Qian Jibo chose to trust the CCP. But his ending was tragic. His manuscript, which he spent a lot of time writing, was largely burned during the CCP’s political movement to destroy the leading “bad” scholars in 1959. He became depressed and died.

Chen Yinke, a Chinese literature master, was called the “professor of professors.” He went with Hu Shih from Beijing to Nanjing but then decided to stay in the mainland with the CCP. He endured much suffering during the CCP’s political movements, as he chose not to give up his conscience to the Party.

The CCP stopped his salary and froze his bank account during the Cultural Revolution. Chen was tortured until he was blind and developed heart disease and many other illnesses. The Red Guards (teenagers who vowed to be loyal only to Mao Zedong) put a few high-pitched speakers next to his bed to frighten him. Even when he was in his last days, the Red Guards still demanded that he “confess his crimes.” As Chen described experience, “I live as if in a prison cell for death row inmates.”

Even CCP officials could not escape the torture.

The aforementioned Wu Han, a renowned historian on the Ming Dynasty and Hu's student, became the chancellor in charge of both Peking University and Tsinghua University. As a party activist, he served as the vice mayor of Beijing.

However, during the Cultural Revolution, he was taken down for a play he wrote, which was criticized as having a hidden political message against the CCP. He was forced to kneel down to receive public criticism and humiliation. His hair was pulled out and his chest developed internal bleeding due to beating. He died in October 1969, without seeing his adopted children for the last time, and leaving only a pair of pants full of bloodstains.

The CCP didn’t leave the children or relatives of the escaping scholars alone either.

Hu Shih’s youngest son, Hu Sidu, who had returned to China from the U.S., refused to evacuate to Taiwan along with his father.

When the CCP carried out a movement to denounce Hu Shih in the 1950s, Hu Sidu published an article titled “Criticism over My Father Hu Shih” and called Hu Shih “the dog of imperialists and the enemy of the public.” But that didn’t give him safety. Hu Sidu was labeled as a “Rightist” in 1957. He committed suicide by hanging himself.

Fu Sinian’s nephew Fu Lehuan finished his studies in Great Britain in 1951. He rejected Fu Sinian’s offer to work in Taiwan and worked as a professor in Beijing, where he thought he would be free and happy. During the Cultural Revolution he was labeled as a “spy” and repeatedly denounced, imprisoned, and tortured. He eventually jumped into a lake in Beijing to end his life.

The cases listed above are just some examples. The CCP has painted a free China with very rosy pictures during the civil war, to allure people to join it. According to the Chinese Academy of Science, about 5,000 Chinese scientists were overseas when the CCP came to power in 1949, and more than 2,000 came back to mainland China by 1956. However, what they experienced once they were in China was something they had never expected.

Seeing through the CCP’s Nature—Reflecting on Events During the Chinese Civil War

Sept. 11, 2020 | By Shixin (Minghui.org)

[Excerpt]

August 9, 1945, was a special day in Chinese history. Already eight years into its massive invasion into China, top Japanese leaders learned at 4 a.m. that day that the Soviet Union had declared war against Japan. Seven hours later, the U.S. launched a second atomic bomb attack on Japan. Later that night, Japanese Emperor Hirohito decided to end the war followed by an official surrender on August 15.

This also triggered a series of changes inside China. Although Kuomintang (KMT) had been the main force to counter the invading Japanese army, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) wasted no time in harvesting the fruit of victory. Between August 10 and 11, 1945, the then CCP leader Mao Zedong issued 7 orders within 18 hours urging 200,000 of his troops to claim territories from the Japanese-occupied regions.

According to Chinese historian Xin Haonian, this was the first time Mao gave official orders to counter the Japanese army. Before that Mao always avoided direct conflicts with the Japanese army for the CCP’s own growth, while millions of KMT soldiers died on the battlefields to fight the Japanese between 1937 and 1945.

Double-Dealing by the CCP

Hoping for peace inside China, the then KMT head Chiang Kai-shek invited Mao three times between August 11 and August 23, 1945, for a meeting. Although Mao was hesitant, Soviet Union leader Joseph Stalin ordered him to go and said his safety would be ensured by the U.S. and Soviet Union.

On August 28, 1945, Mao flew to Chongqing accompanied by Patric J. Hurley, then U.S. ambassador to the Republic of China. As soon as he got off the plane, Mao, who had fought Chiang for decades, shouted, “Long live Generalissimo Chiang!” and delivered a written speech on “ensuring domestic peace, implementing democratic politics and consolidating domestic unity.”

While Mao gave a false impression of being willing to cooperate with KMT on the surface, behind the scenes he was going all out to reap the fruits of the victory of the war with the Japanese army. Before leaving for Chongqing, Mao had instructed his military commanders Liu Bocheng and Deng Xiaoping on August 25, 1945, to attack Chiang’s army as much as possible, “Don’t worry about my safety in Chongqing. The better you fight, the safer I will be, and the better outcome for us in the negotiations.”

While the 41-day Chongqing negotiations captured the attention of the entire country, the CCP army occupied 200 cities and destroyed major roads preventing the KMT army from accepting the Japanese surrender. This allowed the CCP to maximally seize weapons from the surrendered Japanese armed forces.

On October 10, 1945, the KMT and the CCP signed a peace agreement. However, less than a month later, Mao completely destroyed all agreements and all promises.

Chiang: Communist Party Is the Biggest Enemy of Mankind

Having dealt with the CCP for decades, Chiang knew that the CCP would not be reconciled. On the day after the agreement was signed, he wrote in his diary: “The CCP is not only untrustworthy but also despicable in their conduct. They are worse than animals.” He knew very well that the only outcome of “peaceful coexistence” with the communist regime would be to be gobbled up by the demonic communism.

Chiang drew this conclusion because he had known the Soviet Communism and the CCP very well. When visiting the Soviet Union for three months in 1923 as recommended by Sun Yat-sen, Chiang realized that the political system of the Soviet Union was an autocratic system of a terrorist organization.

In 1926, as the Northern Expedition led by Chiang began to show initial success in defeating regional warlords, the CCP instigated the pro-CCP officials in the KMT government to establish another regime in Wuhan City, Hubei Province to interfere with the Northern Expedition. Chiang wrote in “Message to All Soldiers,” “While our National Revolutionary Army was fighting a bloody war in Jiangxi, the Communist Party was arranging a rebellion in Hunan and Hubei [to make troubles]; while our frontline soldiers were fighting fiercely in Zhejiang and Jiangsu, [the CCP] authorities in Wuhan withheld soldiers’ pay and refused to provide any ammunition, not even a bullet.”

Chiang was clear-headed about the CCP’s tricks of double-dealing and back-stabbing, so he launched a large-scale movement to purge communists working within the KMT government and military forces.

At the end of the Huaihai Campaign in January 1949, one of the last wars before the CCP took over in China, Chiang issued an order to stop fighting and instead leave the mainland China for Taiwan. His personal bodyguard recalled Chiang’s despair at the time: He rested his head and arms on the desk and cried with great sadness. As he cried he murmured to himself. “No more fighting, no more fighting; the fallen soldiers are all Chinese,” he said, “This could be my fate. Now the Chinese people all believe in them (CCP officials)—No point fighting anymore. When they [the Chinese people] gradually see the truth, they will long for our return.”

After the CCP usurped power, Chiang continued to expose the vicious nature of the CCP. In 1960, Chiang said in his “Good Friday Testimony:”“The arrogant Communist gangsters shouted that they would destroy all religions in the world, and they would destroy all human beings who do not worship Communism, and that Communism would dominate the world. All their persecutions, struggles, framing, and public trials today are just like the demonic ‘Satan’ in the New Testament era 1,900 years ago. We may calm down and ask ourselves whether we have reached the end of a millennium as mentioned in chapter 20 of the Revelation? ‘Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.’ Bible scholars believe that once Satan is released from prison, he may be very powerful. Communism, the embodiment of Satan, not only fights against God but also deliberately plays tricks with God.”

Chiang realized the incredible pace of Communist aggression. Since the end of World War II, as many as 800 million people were living under the iron curtain of Communism, and there would be no peace in the world as long as Communism is still around. He believed that there was no way out in following the Communist Party and said, “Any attempt to compromise with the Communists is the same as willingly falling into the trap of the Communist Party or opening the door to invite thieves. If the free world follows this path, it will not only fail to rebuild the temple of God but also open up a path to its own annexation. This kind of compromise is to invite Satan to rule the world.”

In 1966, when the CCP launched the Cultural Revolution, Chiang said the criminal and demonic nature of Mao’s gangsters was in absolute contradiction to the Chinese traditional culture. “Under the pretense of the so-called ‘Cultural Revolution’, it committed horrendous atrocities of culture destruction. Today’s mainland has been turned into a huge prison, in which feelings between father and son, gratitude between husband and wife… are all regarded as being treacherous, and people showing such sentiments are subjected to severe criticism at any time!” he wrote.

In 1972, Chiang accurately predicted the disintegration of the European Communist countries in 1990, and the CCP would also be disintegrated a little later. Till his death, the idea of “saving China” was always on Chiang’s mind. He affirmed in one of his speeches: “No one can destroy the Chinese culture! The righteous force that reflects our nation’s independent character and capability embedded in our traditional Chinese culture will ultimately eliminate the Communist bandits!”

The Secret Behind The CCP’s Class Struggle

Yan Xishan served as governor of Shanxi provincial government, and later as premier of the Republic of China. He said in a speech during a major conference in 1949 that some people in both China and the U.S. mistakenly regarded the Chinese Communist Party as a “political party.” They failed to recognize that it is in fact a “party of treacherous rebels.”

Yan, who had suffered a lot in fighting the CCP for many years, gained a deep understanding of the CCP’s practices and their fundamental ideology. When he was in Shanxi, he obtained two documents of the Communist Party, which enabled him to understand why the Communist Party was so fervent about class struggle. At that time, the Communist Party’s tactics in dealing with the people in rural China involved punishing people step by step. First, they would draw the upper-middle class over to their side to punish rich farmers; then rope in smallholder farmers to settle old scores with middle-class farmers; after that, they would instigate poor peasants to do the same to smallholder farmers.

Finally, the CCP would deal with the poor peasants. The document pointed out: “As for how to deal with the poor peasants, we don’t need to do anything special, but explain to them: The People’s Liberation Army is fighting for the people, and those who are not on the front lines must deliver tax grain to the government; first demand this year’s tax grain from them, and if they still have spare grain, then tell them to deliver last year’s tax grain; if they still have leftovers, then require them to deliver tax grain for the previous year, until they are unable to survive. Then we will offer them some relief grain and some production tools, so that they have to rely on us to make a living, and only when they have such connection with us can they fight with us to the end.”

Yan was greatly shocked by what was said in the document as it showed how the CCP took hostage of the entire Chinese population and obtained their resources and manpower by burning, killing, and looting, and was able to expand rapidly as a result. He said, “We are a national state, and we are doing our best to protect the people; the CCP is a party of hooligans and they are doing everything possible to punish people so as to keep them under its control. The CCP does not want people to live in peace, they need people to create chaos with them…. they are after wealthy people’ money and landlords’ land, and use them as funds to create trouble; most of all, they want poor people to be cannon fodders in their fighting strategies.”

Yan also predicted that once the communist party had communized China, it would certainly do the same to Southeast Asia and India, and ultimately it would try to communize the entire world. Communism is internationally aggressive, and all wars launched by the Communist Party were international wars. He also obtained another CCP’s internal document, which encouraged CCP cadres “not to be afraid of atom bombs,” and further confirmed the CCP’s ambition to communize and take control of the world.

The document explained the “anti-atomic bombs” the CCP had in their hands: The British and U.S. imperialists have atomic bombs, so we must have anti-atomic bombs to deal with the enemies’ atomic bombs. They have military atomic bombs, whereas we have political atomic bombs. The British and U.S. imperialists would attack us to control industrial areas and bomb large cities, but we have managed to organize the vast land of Asia and the masses of people in a way that they become inseparable from us, and this is what we can use as a countermeasure against atomic bombs, and it can make it impossible for the enemy’s atomic bombs to exert their effects. This is our approach against atomic bombs, that is, we have anti-atomic-bomb devices, and we are not afraid of British and U.S. imperialists……”

In concluding why he believed Communism would sweep across the world, Yan said that the communist party’s approach was unprecedented in history, a politically aggressive strategy of armed masses. The Communist Party had always used political strategy to manipulate military strategy, and use military strategy to manipulate tactics, and at the same time pack themselves with false propaganda.

He said: “The CCP pretends to be a normal political party outwardly; it appeared to be very enthusiastic about ‘peace’,’democracy’ and ‘progress’ in its propaganda; it used to talk about ‘negotiation’ and ‘consultation’ in politics. However, behind these gorgeous and dazzling outfits, the CCP is always aiming a gun at its opponent’s heart. When they cannot win in the battlefield, the Chinese Communist Party will come to the meeting room. When they cannot win in the meeting room, the Chinese Communist Party will rush back to the battlefield again. ‘Violence’ and ‘Peace’ were used as a double-edged broadsword knife, sticking in front of a compromising government!”

Chen Cheng: Terrorism and Communism Have Never Separated. My life-long dream is to “build up Taiwan and retake the mainland”

Chen Cheng, who was once the No. 2 powerful figure in Taiwan’s politics, had always followed Chiang to root out the Communists with full commitment. He loyally defended Chiang all along and served as Chief of Staff and commander-in-chief of the national navy during the civil war between KMT and the CCP. He was firmly committed to the eradication of Communists throughout his life, served the country loyally, and never forgot to “retake the mainland.”

In his memoirs, Chen referred to the CCP’s Red Army as “red bandits,” pointing out that it was banditry created by the Soviet Communist International, and that the CCP, established in 1921, was a treacherous organization that sold out national interests.

Chen pointed out that the CCP’s bloody killings alone set an unprecedented record. Starvation was also a form of chronic slaughter [about 45 million died during the Great Famine in China between 1959 and 1961]. The CCP was the enemy of the universal value of humanity because they “deny that humans are humans, and affirm that humans are also objects” and “From the beginning to the end, terrorism and communist rule have never separated,” Chen said.

Chen presided over Taiwan’s land reform without shedding any blood. At the same time, he accomplished the capital accumulation required for industrialization and accelerated Taiwan’s rapid economic development. In contrast, at least two million landlords were killed during the CCP’s land reform, and many people lost their families and their loved ones. The land that poor peasants obtained from robbing the landlords were confiscated by the CCP before they even had time to clear out the weeds.

Both Chiang and Chen knew the CCP well and they had always wanted to save the Chinese people and Chinese civilization from being poisoned and destroyed by the CCP. As early as 70 years ago, they saw through the evil nature of Communism and the CCP, knowing that they are demons that aim to destroy China and communize the entire world.

Unfortunately, many Chinese citizens and people in the international community failed to pay enough attention to this reality. As the CCP grows to dominate the world and pushes its communism agenda, and as the entire world suffers from the coronavirus pandemic as a result of the CCP’s mishandling of the outbreak, it is time for us to reflect on these issues and find a path forward.

Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route

Yan, Li-Meng; Kang, Shu; Guan, Jie; Hu, Shanchang
Sept. 14, 2020


The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has led to over 910,000 deaths worldwide and unprecedented decimation of the global economy. Despite its tremendous impact, the origin of SARS-CoV-2 has remained mysterious and controversial. The natural origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support. The alternative theory that the virus may have come from a research laboratory is, however, strictly censored on peer-reviewed scientific journals. Nonetheless, SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus. In this report, we describe the genomic, structural, medical, and literature evidence, which, when considered together, strongly contradicts the natural origin theory. The evidence shows that SARS-CoV-2 should be a laboratory product created by using bat coronaviruses ZC45 and/or ZXC21 as a template and/or backbone. Building upon the evidence, we further postulate a synthetic route for SARS-CoV-2, demonstrating that the laboratory-creation of this coronavirus is convenient and can be accomplished in approximately six months. Our work emphasizes the need for an independent investigation into the relevant research laboratories. It also argues for a critical look into certain recently published data, which, albeit problematic, was used to support and claim a natural origin of SARS-CoV-2. From a public health perspective, these actions are necessary as knowledge of the origin of SARS-CoV-2 and of how the virus entered the human population are of pivotal importance in the fundamental control of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as in preventing similar, future pandemics.

China’s Fifth Column:
An Interview With Trevor Loudon, Part 1


J. R. Nyquist
June 29, 2020

Two pro-China communist parties — Freedom Road Socialist Organization and Liberation Road — are playing leading roles in coordinating the often-violent protests now occurring across the United States.

–Trevor Loudon


In previous articles I have asserted that communists are behind the Black Lives Matter “protests.” Many would disagree, citing police brutality and racial equality as causal factors. Any reference to communism nowadays is rejected as “Cold War” thinking. Yet the violent unrest of 2020 was organized and prepared by communists. This is undeniable, says Trevor Loudon — an expert on communism.

After decades of “ideological subversion” and deception, with the fabrication of pretexts and the misconstruction of contexts, most Americans are unable to see that a communist power-grab is underway. It is multifaceted, multidimensional and multi-pronged.

For thirty years Marxist-Leninists, in every country, proclaimed the end of the communist bloc. The Cold War was over, they said. And Americans believed them. Since 1991 many countries have fallen to communism: South Africa, Congo, Nepal, Venezuela, Nicaragua. Meanwhile, China and Russia, the leading countries of the old communist bloc, are working together, helping Cuba, propping up Venezuela, giving weapons to North Korea.

It is said that you “cannot cheat an honest man.” Communist active measures have always pandered to our moral weaknesses: — to our lazy preconceptions, our cravings for convenience, our intellectual shallowness, our unwarranted optimism. After a hundred years of ideological subversion what remains of our truthfulness? We now say an unborn baby is “unviable tissue,” that sex is not biologically determined, that America won the Cold War, that the greatest danger we face is global warming, that the police are racist and America must undergo “fundamental changes.” Americans have accepted many of these these propositions. That is why the country appears unwilling to defend itself in the current crisis. Each proposition is a piece in a larger strategic whole. Each piece supports another piece, and all of it depends on our intellectual dishonesty. Why have we succumbed? Shakespeare’s Hamlet says, “To be honest, as this world goes, is to be one man picked out of ten thousand.”

It seems we cannot resist the lies we want to believe. Putin’s regime, for example, is willfully misunderstood as a champion of Christian Orthodoxy and Russian nationalism. But a genuine Russian nationalist, like Dmitry Savvin, says Putin is a neo-Bolshevik. He is, quite simply, a functionary of the “sword and shield” of the Communist Party Soviet Union. He has not changed his essence; and neither have the “capitalists” who run the Chinese Communist Party. Meanwhile, the domestic American communist has morphed into a “community organizer,” and a champion of blacks, Hispanics and immigrants. The subtle meaning of this policy is now coming into focus as a declaration of war has been announced against “the white Jesus.”

Precisely because we’ve marinated so long in disinformation, and have been deceived on so many tertiary issues, our thinking has been falsified. The KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov described the situation in terms of “ideological subversion.” He said:

What it basically means is to change the perception of reality of the average American to such an extent that despite the abundance of information no one is able to come to a sensible conclusion about defending themselves and their country.

Here is the explanation of America’s non-reaction to the riots — to the tearing down of the statues of George Washington and Ulysses Grant and Teddy Roosevelt. Here is why defunding the police is seriously considered in major cities. Here is why no violent public reaction to these and other desecrations has occurred — why governors and mayors accept lawless acts as “healthy.” And this is why a communist revolution is widely misconstrued as “anarchist” or “peaceful.”

To get clarity on who actually organized this revolution, and what their objectives are, I turned to Trevor Loudon. He is an expert on communism from New Zealand. To start out, I asked him about the politics of his native country.

“Both our mainstream parties in New Zealand are controlled by the Chinese,” Loudon explained. “One of our members of parliament was an instructor in a Chinese spy school who goes on trade trips to China with the Prime Minister.”

I asked if conservatives made an issue of this.

“It’s all right by them,” Loudon said. “You have to understand, New Zealand was always the weak link of English-speaking countries. It was easier to subvert.”

I asked why New Zealand was easier to subvert.

Loudon said, “Because we were smaller, more easily co-opted. The New Zealand Labor Party was taken over by the communists in the 1980s, through the labor movement.”

Loudon explained that outside the United States, the communists had infiltrated and captured most of the labor unions around the world. It was only a matter of time before most left wing parties succumbed to communist pressure from these movements. Meanwhile, conservative parties, in turn, were influenced through business deals with communist countries that began to accelerate after Nixon recognized Red China in the 1970s.

“Originally,” said Loudon, “the labor movement in the United States was not run by communists. Then, in 1994-95, they put John Sweeney in charge of the AFL-CIO. They removed the clause in their bylaws against communists. So the communists came flooding in. The communists, through the unions, got a left-of-center party — the Democratic Party — to adopt far left policies. All these recent Democratic policies, from the Green New Deal to opening trade with Cuba, come from the communists.”

Loudon explained that the communists were influencing both of America’s political parties in different ways. The Democrats were influenced by the unions, the Republicans were captured through policies of “engagement” with the communist bloc.

“It was a complete mistake,” said Loudon of engagement. “You cannot trade safely with communist countries. The communists are political criminals. You don’t reform the mafia by bringing them into the police department. I had a friend who infiltrated the communist movement and trained in Moscow. He was taught that communists do better in times of Detente. That was in 1983, by the way. They were then planning to put communism on a back burner. They were going to do it under Andropov, but he died of kidney disease and they had to train a new leader, Gorbachev. The Detente thing has always been a sham. They are all about world domination, and ‘engagement’ is just a Trojan Horse. Kissinger, who was identified as a Soviet agent by [General] Michael Goleniewski, was the one who sold Nixon on opening China. How has this worked out? In the 1970s China was a threat to no one. Today China has the biggest military in the world, the second-largest economy in the world, and is now the leader of a resurgent global communist movement. We have created a monster so Americans can buy cheap toasters at Walmart.”

According to Loudon, “China has way more money to buy politicians than the Soviets ever dreamed of having. The Chinese communists can even draw conservatives into their network through ‘legitimate’ business deals. Left wing groups are ideologically sympathetic to China as it is. ‘Engagement’ with China has produced a situation we might not survive — thank you very much, Henry Kissinger.”

I asked Loudon if we can definitively connect the violent unrest in American cities to China.

“Absolutely,” said Loudon. “You have the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, Liberation Road and the Communist Party USA leading this. The first two are responsible for ninety percent of the rioting. They have the big infrastructure for making this happen. Liberation Road has many front groups and nonprofits. They get money from the Ford Foundation, George Soros, even Levi Strauss. They created something called The Movement for Black Lives, which is the coordinating body for Black Lives Matter. BLM was set up in 2014 by three women deeply affiliated with Liberation Road. There are connections here with Marxist terrorist groups like the Weather Underground. In Manhattan there is even an affiliate funded by German taxpayers. It is called The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, with branch offices in Moscow and Beijing. Two of the founders of Black Lives Matter, Patrisse Kahn-Cullors and Alicia Garza, publicly admitted to being ‘trained Marxist organizers.’ Those are their exact words. The Liberation Roads faction has sent three delegations to the Palestinian Territories. These people have heavy connections to Marxist terrorist groups.”

I asked how these revolutionaries tie in to the Democratic Party.

“They are definitely tied in,” said Loudon. “They have an activist group that flipped Virginia from a red to a blue state and took credit for Obama winning the election in 2008. They registered a lot of minority voters.”

The story of how the communists hijacked minority causes and interests to cobble together an electoral majority is explained by Loudon as a clever game of political divide-and-conquer. Communist revolution is not merely a phenomenon of the streets. It also takes place in voting booths across battleground states. Communist strategy holds that several types of struggle are engaged at once. If gains are made in one venue, they are used to leverage victory in another.

In Part 2 Loudon will discuss the communist strategy for winning the November election, the significance of “critical race theory,” and more.

China’s Fifth Column:
An Interview With Trevor Loudon, Part 2


J. R. Nyquist
June 30, 2020


This is not about justice for George Floyd — this is about communist insurrection.
—Trevor Loudon

It has always been a potential problem, in terms of dividing America, that non-white minorities in a largely white country, could fall under the influence of foreign-aligned communist groups or causes. Whatever strides have been made toward color-blindness since World War II, there remains the history of African slavery in the South before the Civil War and the assertion of white supremacy in Southern states after Reconstruction.

Since the 1960s we have been living through a period of unprecedented racial tolerance; yet the Marxists continually remind non-whites of the legacy of slavery and the history of colonialism, claiming that white supremacy is intrinsic to the capitalist system. By means of this propaganda (advanced in accordance with the Marxist dogma of Critical Race Theory), a fear of “whiteness” has been promoted at a time when the overwhelming majority of whites are philosophically opposed to racism. In fact, large numbers of whites voted for a black president in 2008 and 2012.

Since most whites are ashamed of America’s past treatment of blacks, they are susceptible to “white guilt.” This guilt is now being exploited to advance a communist agenda, as opposed to the color-blind agenda envisioned by conservatives. The political significance of this cannot be underestimated. According to Trevor Loudon, the organizations behind today’s revolutionary unrest are Maoist; that is, they are ideologically allied with the Chinese Communists in Beijing.

Loudon says these Maoist groups are registering voters in several states. Their revolution is not mere street agitation. According to Loudon, “They are heavily tied into the Democratic Party and are taking control where they can. For example, they run Durham, North Carolina. Every member of the city council but one … are affiliated with Liberation Road.”

Loudon has written a detailed article on the takeover of Durham, which is a university town. This takeover is part of a larger strategy of destroying the Republican Party’s base of support in the South. “Liberation Road is Maoist,” said Loudon. “They also work with the Democratic Party in blue states, like Massachusetts. They pretty much control the San Francisco City Commission. Several of their politicians operate in Los Angeles. This gives them influence in Sacramento. They have cultivated a big voting block of Asians in San Francisco. The Chinese influence in San Francisco is huge. They operate similarly in Boston. In Florida they have a group called ‘The New Florida Majority,’ which works exactly like the ‘The New Virginia Majority.’ Their aim is to use black and Latin majorities to destroy the Republican voting base in the South.”

I asked Loudon if the communists were succeeding at their electoral strategy.

“They got Virginia,” he replied. “They are advancing in Florida, North Carolina and Georgia. All those states are in danger of going blue in the next election.”

Is Trump likely to win the election?

“I give him a 35 percent chance at this stage,” said Loudon. “Because the left has mobilized minorities and youth. They will now sign up a couple of million new voters. The left has put huge resources into this, gathering up masses of black and Latino and Muslim voters. You have to remember, largely due to immigration, the minority part of the population has doubled over the last four decades. And the way their rhetoric is designed, you’re a racist if you don’t agree with them. By broadening the definition of racism to include anyone who believes in borders, anyone who is a Republican, or anyone who is conservative, they have made communism a mainstream proposition without overtly referring to themselves as communists. They are even saying that anti-communism is racist, because communism is led by China, an Asian country.”

If this kind of propaganda prevails, how will our freedom of speech survive?

“Well, yes, that’s right,” said Loudon. “The left’s rhetoric holds that anyone who disagrees with them is racist, and racists cannot be allowed any freedom of speech. If you don’t believe in ripping down statues you’re a racist. People are terrorized by this word, ‘racism.’ This is one of the communists’ most powerful weapons. I personally know people who have been fired for opposing Black Lives Matter in Facebook posts. To be a racist, like being a climate change denier, is to risk ostracism. So the counter-arguments are not being made. If they say Trump is a racist, give me specifics. They cannot. But who is challenging them?”

I said to Loudon, “This rhetoric seems to be rolling us up. On every side we see inaction, we see surrender, we see fear.”

Loudon replied: “The Republican Party is silent because they are terrified of this one word. Nikki Haley talked about 400 years of white repression. She wants to run for President on the Republican side. This is how she talks. Everyone must now fall into line with Critical Race Theory, which was advanced by James Cone, the founder of Black Liberation Theology. He went to Cuba in 1982, to meetings with Castro. He took Jeremiah Wright — Obama’s pastor — with him. They said, basically, that if you are white you are racist. If you are part of the white, Christian, capitalist, patriarchy, you are a racist. Thus, they attacked men. They attacked free institutions. They attacked Christianity. Now we hear calls to wipe out images of the ‘white Christ.’”

Do you think the Chinese Communist Party is supporting this?

Loudon replied: “When President Trump put tariffs on Chinese goods, the Chinese declared a ‘People’s War.’ This is a Maoist concept. It means a war of attrition on every front. It is harassment to exhaust the United States. They want to take over areas around cities and starve the cities. What they do in an urban setting is attack police stations and set up their own police. They are trying to use these areas as Maoist bases to eliminate the Republican Party in those states. There is a biological warfare aspect to this, as well, if we think of the way COVID-19 has played into this.”

Loudon believes that the “Chinese virus” was “the first round” of the “People’s War” waged by China. The Maoist assault on our symbols, institutions and cities is the second round. The third round, he says, “will be more kinetic.”

“I think there will be terrorist attacks and targeted assassinations,” said Loudon. “These will not only be from the left, but from white supremacist groups — to create more division. Look at Charlottesville. You had pro-Russian white supremacists facing off against Chinese communist groups. Who got the blame? Of course, this is all predicated on a government non-reaction. Did you know it is a felony to cross state lines to start a riot? Imagine what the federal government could do if it wanted?”

Should we be shocked at the federal government’s apparent unwillingness to arrest and prosecute communist agitators?

Loudon said, “Freedom Road Socialist Organization started this business in Minnesota. This group is openly pro-Chinese and openly ‘People’s War.’ Some of them are known to support FARC, the Communist Armed Forces of Colombia. They also support the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. They have set up a national alliance against race oppression modeled on an organization founded by Angela Davis in the 1970s. She actually came to their founding. They have coordinated most of these riots through the NAAPR. Frank Chapman is one of the people at the center of this. He was sent to jail long ago for a robbery killing. Then he became a jailhouse lawyer and a radical activist. His affiliates sparked the riots. These are the ‘sparks’ of a revolutionary movement. Lenin defined a spark — Iskra — as something that ignites a revolution. When Trump was elected they said their purpose was to be in the streets for four years and make the country ungovernable.”

It seems that America is in a desperate situation.

“We are in a revolutionary situation,” said a Loudon. “And who is fighting back? There are 500 FBI investigations now. All they have to do is read my articles and they would know who to arrest. But watch. They will arrest white supremacists. The narrative is that these are ‘peaceful’ demonstrations. But in reality this is a ‘People’s War.’ They are destroying the police, demoralizing their opposition. This war is biological, electronic, and psychological. The FBI supposedly has 2,000 investigations into Chinese activities right now. But it’s not enough.”

I noted that the FBI is too small to cope with such large problems and Loudon agreed. “There are people being arrested,” he said. “I saw the President’s National Security Advisor, Robert O’Brien, saying that America is done being naive about China.”

And what if Trump loses the November election?

“Yes,” said Loudon. “What happens then? Imagine if these mobs had a Democratic President egging them on? Imagine Vice President Kamala Harris taking over from an incapable Joe Biden.”

Are we on the verge of mass repressions against conservatives?

“Yes,” Loudon replied. “We will be targeted heavily.”

The Mystery of China’s Military Doctrine

J. R. Nyquist, Sept. 24, 2020

In war, the subjection of the enemy is the end, and the destruction of his fighting forces the means.
--Carl von Clausewitz



Roger Cliff is the author of a recent study on the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), titled China’s Military Power: Assessing Current and Future Capabilities. Cliff says that modern wars are decided by strategy and doctrine. He also says China hides its military doctrine behind disinformation and secrecy.

It should come as no surprise that Beijing keeps its military doctrine hidden. The reason is simple. The Chinese rulers have two faces: (1) a communist face; (2) a capitalist face. Shall we guess which is their true face?

The regime in Beijing is Marxist-Leninist. It is totalitarian and criminal. It actively suppresses dissent, murders political activists, operates reeducation labor camps, and persecutes religious believers. Add to this China’s military buildup and threatening behavior toward Australia, India and Taiwan. What sense does it make to think the Chinese leaders are capitalists who merely pretend to be communists?

According to Roger Cliff, China’s military objectives are determined by the ruling Communist Party. This party subscribes to Leninist revolutionary theory — a theory that seeks to engineer the downfall of capitalism. Translation: Beijing is trying to defeat the United States.

On this last point Washington and the Pentagon are confused. Occasionally they see what China is up to. But then everyone in Washington reverts back to Panda-hugging. One might ask: Why do we trade with China when Beijing uses so many unfair trade practices? Why do we tolerate their ongoing intellectual theft and political subversion?

Here we find that American policymakers also have two faces. They have a face that is indignant at Beijing’s crimes, and a face that wants to do business with Beijing. Which is the true face of the American policymakers? Shall we guess?

It is time to say the truth. America’s policy of trading with China is dangerous. It has to stop. We should not be sharing technology with the People’s Liberation Army. We should not give Chinese communists access to our financial system. President Xi Jinping is a thug who sits atop a murderous regime, rife with corruption and primed for military aggression. Close collaboration with such a regime will get us a knife in the back.

It is only a question of when the Chinese communists decide to knife us. After all, America is the enemy the Communist Party has sworn to destroy. In Roger Cliff’s book, there are several clues to China’s military strategy for defeating the United States. We know that Chinese strategy emphasizes preemption, surprise and a desire for “rapid decision.” Chinese texts say, “take the initiative as soon as you can.” Consistent with ancient Chinese practice, these texts also emphasize avoiding a “direct engagement with enemy military forces” together with “precision strikes” and “unified leadership under centralized command.”

In terms of China’s military doctrine, here are the taglines for China’s secret “Campaign Guidance” documents: (1) “integrated joint operations” (suggests an amphibious invasion); (2) “new domains of struggle (suggests the amphibious operation will aim at objectives outside China’s sphere of influence); (3) “expansion of the scope of operations.” (suggests an entirely new theater of operations). If we take the three “Campaign Guidance” concepts together, it seems the Chinese envision some kind of naval/amphibious invasion involving “new domains” by expanding the “scope of [military] operations.”

More recently the PLA has issued a fourth “Campaign Guidance” concept in support of the first three: namely, “counter-terrorist operations.” The Chinese apparently expect to occupy someone’s territory, with attending civilian resistance (i.e., “terrorism”). Thus, “counter-terror” is required, possibly along the lines of Gen. Chi Haotian’s references (in his secret speech) to the killing of “women, children and prisoners of war.”

Might the PLA’s “Campaign Guidance” documents refer to a direct attack on U.S. territory following the collapse of the U.S. economy in a civil war scenario?

When asked by the author whether an invasion of North America had ever been contemplated by Russian or Chinese strategists, Col. Stanislav Lunev (a Russian defector) referred to Operation Weserübung — the German invasion of Norway in 1940. He then made special mention of German infiltration troops. The role of such troops, in a Russian/Chinese invasion scenario, could be greatly enlarged for operations in North America. Troops could be infiltrated into the U.S. as tourists, students, or illegal aliens. Once inside the United States, they could pick up uniforms and weapons at secret arms caches. They could then secure key points of entry (like airfields and ports). Invading forces need not come directly from China or Russia. Lunev noted that ideas presented in the Zimmerman Telegram, during World War I, were ahead of their time. In that telegram, the German Foreign Office proposed a military alliance between Mexico and Imperial Germany. Mexico, under the right circumstances, could be an important ally for an invading power. (Though Germany at that time was in no position to invade the United States or position troops in Mexico.)

U.S. Secretary of State on the Chinese Communist Party’s Threats to Western Values

Sept. 28, 2020 | By Minghui correspondent Wang Ying


In a recent speech at the Wisconsin State Capitol, United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, talked about how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) challenges Western values, by leaning on local governments in the U.S.. In one example, a Chinese diplomat demanded that the Wisconsin state legislature praise the CCP, even as the world suffers from a catastrophe caused by the regime. In another example, the CCP effectively shelved a California state senator’s proposed bill, that condemned the persecution of Falun Gong in China.

Pompeo delivered his speech, “State Legislatures and the China Challenge,” on September 23. The full text is available on the State Department’s website.

The first example concerned Roger Roth, president of the Wisconsin Senate. Wu Ting, the consul from China’s consulate in Chicago, wrote an email to Roth requesting a resolution in praise of the CCP’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. Knowing how the tragedy has led to catastrophic consequences in the U.S. and around the world, Roth deleted the email thinking it was a joke.

But Wu sent a follow-up email pushing for the resolution. Roth’s one-word email replied “No.” “Look, the Chinese Communist Party knew early on, how virulent the coronavirus was that originated in Wuhan. They did what authoritarian regimes do. They oppress—suppressed information. They censored; they disappeared courageous whistleblowers and journalists, who tried to sound the alarm all across the world. And they allowed people from Wuhan to travel to Italy and abroad,” said Pompeo about the episode.

Roth did not stop there. Instead, he proposed a resolution, stating that “the Communist Party of China deliberately and intentionally misled the world on the Wuhan coronavirus.”

This was not an isolated event, noted Pompeo. The CCP has been doing the same to many countries around the world, including the United States. He said that many countries try to influence the United States, but “they’re fundamentally different than what the Chinese Communist Party is doing. It has a much more sinister view of this engagement. The party and its proxies aim to make Americans receptive to Beijing’s form of authoritarianism,” he explained.

Disinformation

The second example is related to Falun Gong. A California state senator proposed a resolution in 2017 to support Falun Gong practitioners in China and around the world. Despite its great benefits on mind and body, Falun Gong has been suppressed by the CCP since July 1999. The resolution would highlight the persecution the practitioners are enduring for their belief.

The Chinese consulate in San Francisco wrote a letter to the state legislature, defaming Falun Gong and claiming that the resolution would affect the relationship between the state of California and China. “Unfortunately, the California State Senate bowed to the CCP pressure and shelved the proposed bill,” added Pompeo.

These are just two examples of how the CCP tries to comprise Western values, by targeting state and local governments in the U.S..

Pompeo also brought up the example of the many sister-city programs, that carry benign titles such as “Association of Friendship,” which usually “fall under the authority of something called, the Chinese People’s Association of Friendship with Foreign Countries,” which in turn, “is part of China’s United Front Work Department – the CCP’s official overseas propaganda tool.” Propaganda is one of the CCP’s Three “Magic Weapons,” with the other two being “armed struggle” and “party-building.”

Pompeo said he would like to highlight these hidden CCP agendas. “Know that if you’re offered a trip to China when the pandemic travel restrictions are lifted, that you should ask who is paying for the trip, and if that person is linked—directly or indirectly—to the Chinese Communist Party,” he said.

Pompeo’s comments are consistent with the U.S. Administration's recent efforts to curb the CCP on human rights violations and religious persecution. In an interview on August 31, Sam Brownback, the U.S.. Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom, emphasized their significance. “China is at war with faith. It is a war they will not win,” he said. “It’s a war that the kingdom of man has tried to win for millennia, and they’re not going to win this one and they haven’t won it in the past.”

Should We Kick Chinese Communist Party Members Out of the US?

The Trump administration may ban all members of the CCP and their families from the country

Commentary by James Gorrie
September 29, 2020



With U.S.-China relations at their lowest point in decades, some are questioning the wisdom of a potential ban by President Trump against all 90 million members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and their families from entering or remaining in the country.

The proposal is not yet official or even completely drafted, but the gist of it is that members of the CCP will not be allowed into the country. Additionally, those Party members and their family members who live, work or attend school in the United States would be expelled.

A New Cold War—or Just the Recognition of It?

Needless to say, it would certainly drive the United States and China further apart than they already are. Some also predict that it would trigger a cold war between the two nations.

Maybe so. On the other hand, it rather seems like a fait accompli, does it not?

In fact, U.S. policy makers have announced a clear shift from cooperation with China to one of confronting China on all fronts. The United States no longer views China as a global partner or even as a competitor or rival.

As a consequence, China, under the power of the CCP, is now regarded—correctly, I might add—as the primary adversary against freedom, democracy, and the liberal order that the United States faces in the world.

That’s the proper context in which to view the proposed ban on CCP from the United States.

Is such a proposal a good idea?

The Upside of the Ban

Assuming that such an edict (if it ever becomes law) survived all the media protests and sob stories of people being deported, there would be some clear upside to it.

For one, we know that the CCP and the Party leadership is steadfast in their aim to destroy the United States by any and all means necessary. The CCP virus (novel coronavirus) that the Party launched upon the world should disabuse anyone of any doubt on that score.

Secondly, we know that members of the Party are legally bound to serve the CCP. Technological and IP theft are therefore obligatory. Again, there’s no credible argument against this.

Therefore, it follows that the CCP is in the United States for nefarious purposes, namely to steal our ideas, undermine our universities and think tanks with pro-China dogma, as well as change the attitudes of the younger generations toward China through control of key cultural channels such as film and the news media.

The CCP is also quite adept at buying our politicians, co-opting our scientists, filching our cyber and military secrets, corrupting out technology leaders such as Apple, Microsoft, Twitter and the like, and of course, defrauding our capital markets.

On Twitter, for example, 23,000 accounts were suspended for spreading CCP propaganda against Hong Kong and disinformation on the CCP virus. A year earlier, Twitter suspended over 150,000 CCP accounts for anti-American, pro-China tweets.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

For the past four decades, exploiting the open societies of the West, and in particular, the United States, has been the CCP’s consistent modus operandi. And they’ve been so successful at it that they are now a threat to the entire world.

Even the European Union (EU) gets it. If you didn’t realize all of this, well, you do now.

How Much Would It Help?

Would banning the CCP from the United States eradicate much or all of that activity?

Certainly not all of it. But it may stop some or even much of it.

Several factors may impact its effectiveness.

For one, it would only exist in a Trump administration. It’s difficult to imagine a Biden-Harris administration allowing such a policy to remain in place.

Secondly, it remains to be seen how the ban might be enforced and what the penalties might be for violating it. More than likely, the results would be a mixed bag of legal challenges, high profile exits, celebrated discoveries of China’s malfeasance, and xenophobia charges played repeatedly in the mainstream media.

But there would be on very important benefits.

First, it would show the world, and most importantly, our allies in Europe and elsewhere how serious we take the CCP’s threat to the world. It may well prompt others to do the same.

Secondly, in that vein, it could well be the first step in a U.S. attempt to formulate a new, multilateral containment policy against China. The CCP, after all, has lost all credibility with the developed nations.

No one believes that the CCP is a harmless or even neutral player in the world.

Third, it may make life for the CCP in China more difficult. The CCP already spends more money protecting itself from the people over which it rules, than its entire external defense budget.

But importantly, it’s not as if the United States is against
1.4 billion Chinese, as the CCP claims. Rather, it is only against the cruel leadership of the CCP that oppresses its own and seeks to do the same to the rest of the world.

CCP Reaction

The CCP’s reaction to such a proposed ban would likely be multi-faceted.

For instance, would they expel American businesses and students?

Probably. Overnight, American businesses would be hustling for new offshore factory locations, or may even move all operations stateside.

Would the CCP pullback from its aggression against Hong Kong and threats against Taiwan?

Not likely. In fact, both would probably continue if not increase in intensity.

But many other reactions and responses from the CCP would certainly take place.

For instance, would Beijing potentially seek to de-legitimize the dollar as a global reserve currency by dumping its U.S. Treasury bond holdings?

Very possibly.

Would the CCP seek to isolate the United States on the world stage, even as they expand their efforts to undermine the free nations of the world?

Certainly.

Could the CCP leadership decide to launch a new strain of coronavirus on the world?

That’s possible as well.

Given all these possible responses, should the United States ban the CCP from America?

Absolutely.

How the CCP Has Brainwashed the Chinese People to Control Them Better

Commentary By Yuan Bin
September 29, 2020 Updated: September 30, 2020


The arrogant and domineering Chinese Communist Party (CCP) cannot tolerate differences of opinion. In its eyes, independent thought is a threat to its rule. For the convenience of ruling the country, the CCP deprives the Chinese people of their rights to a free economy, participation in politics, and independent thinking. Instead, the CCP has people think, speak, and act as it instructs them to; and keeps total control over people’s thoughts and actions.

‘Party Culture’ and Violence

The two main weapons the CCP uses to exercise mind control over the Chinese people are “Party culture” and violence.

The purpose of mind control is to completely remove all divergent or independent thinking so people can be turned into slaves and obedient tools.

To this end, the CCP spares no effort to block and monopolize information and prohibits people from contacting different ideologies or accessing historical facts. At the same time, starting in kindergarten, the CCP instills its own deviant “Party culture” ideology into the Chinese people, so that from childhood to adulthood, life is filled with “Party voices.”

And even more terrifying, this abhorrent brainwashing is completely enforced by violence. If you obey the CCP, you will be safe and sound and promoted into the “red noble class.” Keeping mistresses and accepting bribes are then no problem, because you are “politically correct.” But if you dare to resist the CCP and stick to your own views and beliefs, you will be in serious trouble: it will cost you your life, and even your entire family’s. Under such violent coercion, the vast majority of Chinese people can do nothing but obey the CCP’s orders and willingly allow themselves to be fooled.

When not engaged in violent political campaigns against the Chinese people—such as the Cultural Revolution or the persecution of Falun Gong—the CCP steadily carries out brainwashing and mind control of the people in a step-by-step fashion. But once a political campaign is launched, brainwashing and mind control will be ratcheted up and turned into a massive storm to support the content and goals of the campaign.

It can be said that every political campaign since the CCP’s takeover of China has been a frenzied effort of brainwashing the Chinese people and an unprecedented strengthening of its mind control.

This absurd and brutal brainwashing and mind control of the population has continued from the day the People’s Republic of China was established in 1949 to the present. Across the country, people’s thinking has been imprisoned and confined within the limits allowed by the CCP. One step beyond the line is considered a sin.

Moral and Spiritual Degradation

The inevitable outcome of this violent mind control has been the moral and spiritual degradation of the entire Chinese nation.

The CCP has not only changed the definition of values and moral standards and rewritten China’s code of conduct and lifestyle, it also turned its absurd “Party culture” ideology into the collective thinking mode of the mainland Chinese people.

Many Chinese have completely lost the ability to pursue the search for truth, think independently, distinguish right from wrong. They have become spiritual slaves who can only understand things according to the CCP’s “Party culture.” There is no longer a need for the CCP’s propaganda mouthpieces to blatantly clamor all the time. People have formed a conditioned reflex and will actively follow the CCP’s logic when thinking about a problem, and they will look at things from the CCP’s perspective to determine what’s right or wrong. As the saying goes, “As soon as the CCP blows air, it rains among the people.”

The CCP has constantly told the Chinese that living conditions in the West are miserable. So when a newspaper published a picture of homeless people below a skyscraper in the United States, the Chinese automatically identified it as “the death struggle of capitalism and its reactionary nature.”

Another claim the CCP has repeatedly made is that democracy and freedom are not suitable for China. Therefore, when there is an argument during an election in a democratic country, as long as the CCP reports it as a joke, Chinese people will secretly rejoice about how happy they are living under a dictatorship.

The CCP also tries to make the Chinese people believe that the United States has serious human rights issues. For example, state-run media would report on police violence in America and take it out of context.

Former CCP leader Jiang Zemin, who started the persecution campaign against the Falun Gong spiritual practice, spent several years fabricating lies and slandering its adherents. In May 2005, state broadcaster CCTV aired a program about Zhang Hai, the owner of a sports drink company. The report alleged that Zhang had used Tibetan qigong to defraud people of money. There was no mention of Falun Gong in the program, and it had nothing to do with Falun Gong. But since qigong was defamed, some viewers associated Zhang with Falun Gong and then openly attacked the practice. Slandering a spiritual practice or a religion is a common tactic the CCP uses to incite hatred against a group it has targeted.

Many Chinese have lost the ability to think independently but still believe that they are thinking on their own. When they were the club the CCP relied on to strike at others, they thanked the Party for its “trust.” When they themselves were hit by the CCP, they sincerely thanked the Party for its “lesson.”

How much longer can the CCP brainwash and fool the Chinese people?

While in a Severe Crisis, the CCP Still Keeps Making Up Lies

Commentary by Wang He
October 1, 2020

The year 2020 was supposed to see the end of poverty in China, the year that concluded the 13th Five Year Social and Economic Development Initiative, and the year the country steps into the second phase of the “Three-Step Development of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics” in economic, military and rural areas.

It was supposed to be a year for Chinese leader Xi Jinping and his comrades to laud their significance and success in China. The COVID-19 pandemic has, however, put both Xi and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in a serious crisis.

Xi and the CCP are indeed tied together in a shared destiny of facing power struggle within the Party, social unrest in the nation, and pressure from the international community.

Can we expect Xi and the CCP to change? No, they are still taking the same old path with the same mentality.

On the one hand, the CCP continues to proclaim that progress has been “better than expected” as reported by the Politburo on July 30.

On the other hand, the CCP continues to act tough.

The suppression of ethnic groups continues. The construction of concentration camps continues in Xinjiang, where at least one million Uyghurs are detained. Authorities in Inner Mongolia have recently mandated that schools teach in Mandarin Chinese by forcibly cancelling Mongolian language instruction. In the past, this policy was also used with ethnic Koreans and in Tibet.

High-tech surveillance and wide grid management are imposed on the general public in China. Grid management is a system recently adapted by Beijing to monitor and control individual residents.

Private enterprises must now submit to Party control through the United Front Work Department, a unit under the CCP that coordinates thousands of groups to carry out foreign political influence operations, suppress dissident movements, gather intelligence, and facilitate the transfer of technology to China.

Suppression of political dissidents continues, whether they be intellectuals, such as Xu Zhangrun, a professor of Jurisprudence and Constitutional Law at Tsinghua University in Beijing; or second generation “red princlings,” such as Ren Zhiqiang, a former real estate tycoon, and Cai Xia, a retired professor from the CCP’s Central Party School.

In the international arena, the CCP has adopted policies to threaten democracy in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and an all-encompassing confrontation with the United States.

Fabricated Economic Numbers

While 2020 has been a year of unprecedented disasters in China—the deadly CCP virus (novel coronavirus) pandemic, massive flooding, a bad economy, and more—which have all had a direct negative impact on a politically important year for the regime, the CCP nevertheless continues to fabricate economic achievements and growth numbers.

Recently, Chinese netizens summarized the CCP’s three main lies of 2020:

The second quarter GDP growth for 2020 was 3.2 percent;
Summer grain output was at a historical high, up 0.9 percent from last year, according to the National Bureau of Statistics;
All rural residents will have been lifted out of poverty in 2020.

Here is my brief analysis of these three lies.

Lie About GDP Growth

China’s mouthpiece CGTN reported, “The world’s second-largest economy grew by 3.2 percent in April-June from a year earlier, reversing a 6.8 percent decline in the first quarter.”

It’s obvious that it’s hard for the CCP to not brag about its accomplishments and the superiority of the Chinese path. But is the regime’s official data trustworthy?

In 2019, Xiang Songzuo, an economist and professor at the School of Finance of Renmin University, argued that official statistics are not telling the truth about the health of China’s economy. According to Xiang, when he went to places to observe, investigate, and talk to people, the “local government officials are much more frank about the fact that their regions are experiencing negative growth.” Of course, his comment was immediately removed from the Chinese web.

The pandemic has so far resulted in more than 33 million confirmed cases and over a million deaths worldwide. Among them, the United States has counted more than 7.4 million people infected and over 210,000 deaths. China, on the other hand, being the epicenter and origin of the CCP virus, has officially announced a surprisingly small number of infections and deaths—a total of 90,993 infections and 4,746 deaths as of Sept. 28—the numbers indicate how much the CCP could have manipulated the data.

Given the devastating effect the pandemic has on the Chinese economy, the 3.2 percent growth in the second quarter can be considered a lie.

Lie About Bumper Grain Harvest

On Aug. 22, state-run People’s Daily reported that “China’s summer grain output reached a record high of 142.8 billion kg this year, 1.21 billion kg more than the previous year.” Pan Wenbo, head of the crop production department at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, said, “The floods in South China did not change the general trend of output increase.”

However, Pan is certainly aware of the fact that the autumn grain harvest accounts for three-quarters of the annual grain production in China. With the severe floods in the south and the Yellow River basin, and the locust infestations, how likely is it there will be a bumper grain harvest this year, as he claimed?

The 2020 Rural Development Report by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, published on Aug. 17, says China is expected to have a food supply gap of 130 million tons by the end of 2025. And according to data released by China’s National Bureau of Statistics in December 2018, China’s food self-sufficiency rate had dropped to about 82.3 percent. That’s a gap of 17.7 percent.

What the 17.7 percent gap entails is food shortages for 250 million Chinese in the mainland.

In fact, China became a net importer of agricultural goods in 2008 according to the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service Report. The regime’s mouthpiece CGTN also reported that China is the world’s largest grain importer, having imported 115 million tons of grain in 2018. And according to Chinese news portal Sina.com, China has become the largest importer of agricultural goods since 2011.

The United States is China’s main food exporter. Under the current U.S.-China cold war situation, the food supply issue has changed from being a weapon used by Beijing to attack Washington, to being the CCP’s weakness. The CCP’s souring relations with both Australia and Canada, also major food exporters, have further increased the risk of China not getting its food imports secured.

In addition, corruption inside China’s grain reserve system has led many to suspect that false grain reserve records could amount to a minimum of hundreds of millions of tons of grain.

The CCP knows this well. In March 2019, as the U.S.-China trade war was escalating, the CCP ordered a national inventory check of the quantity and quality of China’s grain reserves. In August of this year, Xi Jinping once again called attention to food security and food waste, and implemented the “clean plate” campaign. These all highlight the food crisis China is facing today.

Lie About Eradicating Poverty

In 2015, while visiting Seattle, Xi Jinping mentioned in a speech: “By China’s own standard, we still have over 70 million people living below the poverty line. If measured by the World Bank standard, the number would be more than 200 million.”

In November of the same year, the CCP’s Central Committee and the State Council adopted the decision of “Winning the Fight Against Poverty,” which charted the course for China’ s poverty alleviation campaign through 2020. However, the pandemic, floods, and various other disasters have doomed the “decision.”

Furthermore, in regard to lifting people out of poverty, diverging opinions are being heard. For instance, during a meeting of China’s rubber-stamp legislature on May 28, Premier Li Keqiang said that China still has 600 million people with a monthly income of barely 1,000 yuan ($140). This has widely been interpreted as being an attack on Xi’s poverty alleviation plan.

However, claiming “victory” in wiping out poverty is still foreseeable by applying the regime’s mentality.

It’s quite easy and convenient for the CCP to create an image of victory.

A WeChat message posted in Yulin of Guangxi Province, on Jan. 2, informed the locals: “You have been identified as an individual in severe poverty. To ensure the nation will reach the 2020 goal of eliminating poverty, surrender yourself tomorrow morning at 8 o’clock to the local public security bureau to be executed.”

Local officials in Yulin later said someone was “spreading rumors.” But this post is not that far removed from the absurd claims made by the CCP about “lifting all people out of poverty” in China today.

In conclusion, Xi Jinping and the CCP have become trapped in a crisis brought about by the Three-Step Development of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics and by the three big lies. For the CCP, it means that it’s doomed to exit the stage of history.

Wang He has master’s degrees in law and history, with a focus on the international communist movement. He was a university lecturer and an executive of a large private company in China. He was imprisoned in China twice for his beliefs. Wang lives in North America now and has published commentaries on China’s current affairs and politics since 2017.

As CCP facing a cold war, it may start robbing and seizing the private sector...

How a Shipping Tycoon in China Lost Everything, Even His Life, Because of the Chinese Communist Party

Oct. 5, 2020 | By Li Yan (Minghui.org)


Because the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) controls the nation’s resources, the private sector in China has always operated at the mercy of the Party.

In fact, the CCP wiped out the private sector in the 1950s only to allow it to re-emerge in the late 1970s. During the past few years, the CCP has implemented policies to start regaining control of the private sector, with the recent call for a “public-private partnership reform,” which aims to increase the government's stake in private companies.

At a recent conference with private business owners, Xi Jinping, the current head of the CCP, advised learning from “patriotic entrepreneur” role models, such as Lu Zuofu, Wang Guangying, and Song Yiren, who listened to the Party and shared ownership of their companies with the government.

However, the story of Lu Zuofu shows the exact opposite—how a businessman was cheated and then destroyed by the CCP.

The Death of Lu Zuofu

Lu Zuofu was China’s shipping king from the 1920s to the 1940s. He established his Minsheng Industrial Group in 1925 and dominated the shipping business along the Yangtze River.

Lu organized “China’s Dunkirk Evacuation” in 1938: His company shipped 1.5 million people and over one million tons of material down the Yangtze River from Yichang City, Hubei Province, to Chongqing, when the Japanese army invaded China and was approaching Yichang. This retreat saved China’s major industries during China’s battle against Japan during World War II.

Lu was praised by the government as a national hero. At the same time, the war cost his company 16 ships and 116 lives, with an additional 61 staff members disabled.

After WWII, the CCP fought a civil war against the Kuomintang, the ruling party at the time, and took over the mainland in 1949. Lu, who was then running his ships out of Hong Kong, had four options: Go with the CCP, go with the Kuomintang to Taiwan, go to the U.S. to write his memoirs, or stay in Hong Kong and continue to run his shipping business.

Lu chose to go with the CCP and went to Beijing. He had his ships move to the coast of the mainland on June 10, 1950. The CCP treated him well initially: Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai met him, the CCP made him a member of the National Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, and after he returned to Chongqing, the CCP appointed him a member of the Southwest Region’s Military and Political Committee.

However, Lu was losing control of his company. The CCP “sandwiched” his business by controlling the raw materials, capital, and sales channels. His company had to keep its funds in state-owned banks and was not allowed to get loans from private banks or private institutes.

As his company ran out of money, Lu had no choice but to agree to “public and private joint ownership” to get loans from state-owned banks. Then he was phased out.

Even before the government took joint ownership, the Party representatives had already started making decisions on staff at the Minsheng company, including arrests, demotions, and terminations. Lu could only stand by and watch as his senior and mid-level officials, who had worked with him to create Minsheng miracles in the past, were attacked or purged.

In January 1952, the CCP launched a political movement that targeted the capitalists in industry and business. The Party representative at the Minsheng company claimed on February 8 that Lu attempted to “corrupt” him by taking him to restaurants and theaters. Lu’s aide confirmed that Lu paid for dinner, the Peking Opera, and a haircut for the representative. He did not mention that Lu used his own money to pay for those things.

That night, Lu took a fatal dose of sleeping pills. He left a letter to his wife, telling her to hand over all his assets to the state. He finally understood that the CCP was intent on taking over his business assets at any cost and that he had to give them up to save the lives of his wife and children.

History: Government Seizure of Private Companies

There are many such examples. At least 876 people committed suicide in Shanghai from January 25 to April 1, 1952. Chen Yi, then mayor of Shanghai, was reported to have casually asked his aide every day how many “paratroopers” had descended that day, referring to those who killed themselves by jumping out of tall buildings.

To justify its actions, the CCP made owning wealth a crime, confiscating wealth the right thing to do, and committing violence legitimate.

After eliminating the landlords and capitalists, the CCP then targeted the peasants, merchants, and skilled laborers and took their money. It left the people in poverty.

The CCP converted all private ownership to “public and private joint ownership” in 1956 and paid 5% annual interest to the original owners, regardless of how profitable the company had been. It then stopped paying interest in September 1966. By then, there was no more private ownership—the CCP had taken over every company.

The CCP Is Seeking to Repeat History

The CCP’s economy based on state-owned companies was proving to be a failure. In the late 1970s, it was forced to “open up and reform,” bringing back the private sector.

Today, private businesses are the backbone of China’s economy. Private companies contributed two-thirds of China’s GDP, 300 million jobs, and over 50% of taxes. The state-owned enterprises (SOEs), although they boast large assets and incomes, show low profits.

The CCP, however, does not appreciate private businesses. Instead, it has been working on taking over private assets again.

One attorney pointed out that China’s Criminal Law details over 450 crimes, with over 110 of them being economic crimes. The CCP can easily destroy a private business owner by accusing him of an “economic crime” with no effort at all.

Another way the CCP encroaches on the private sector is to force private companies to establish Party branches. The Conference on Party Building in Internet Companies in Beijing, which was held on August 25, 2017, revealed that 34 Internet companies, including Baidu and Sina, had established Party organizations within the companies.

The CCP also designed a special class of stock, namely, “Special Management Stock,” which enables the CCP to own a small percentage of stocks but still have veto power over company affairs, thus exercising its influence over the company’s decisions.

Fleeing China?

Many Chinese business owners have come to see that Lu Zuofu’s fate will soon be theirs and try to escape.

The “Global Wealth Migration Review 2019” report, published by the AfrAsia Bank and New World Wealth, showed that China had the highest number of wealthy people immigrating overseas in 2019, twice the number leaving Russia, which came in second place. A total of 10,000 wealthy Chinese immigrated in 2017 and 15,000 in 2018, an increase of 50%.

Over 15 entrepreneurs from mainland China whose companies are listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange were reported to have set up offshore trusts in 2018, moving $28.5 billion assets overseas.

Will today’s Chinese business owners end up like Lu Zuofu? It seems inevitable given what the CCP is doing to its people and businesses.

“We are opening a new Chinese counterintelligence investigation about every 10 hours,” said Christopher Wray, FBI Director. "FBI has over 2,000 counterintelligence investigations on China, by far the biggest chunk of our counterintelligence portfolio."

Top U.S. Officials Condemn the CCP for Its Threat to the Free World
Oct. 5, 2020 | By Minghui correspondent Ying Zi

As of September 29, the coronavirus has infected over 33 million people and killed more than one million around the world. Like many other Western countries, the United States has been awakened by the disinformation and lies propagated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and has begun to reshape its strategy with regard to China.

From the White House to the Department of State to the FBI, officials have recently emphasized the difference between the Chinese people and the CCP. Their announcements call for preserving Western values and for protecting religious belief.

White House Adviser: “That virus was a product of the Chinese Communist party”

In a June 21, 2020 article, the Washington Times cited Peter Navarro, Director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, as saying, “That virus was a product of the Chinese Communist party and until we get some information about what happened in those labs or what happened in that wet market we know that virus was spawned in China.”

Navarro reiterated his stance in a Fox News interview on September 13 that the CCP’s mishandling of the coronavirus outbreak has severely damaged the world economy. In particular, “the Chinese Communist Party hit the strongest and most resilient economy in history that President Trump had built. And we had to go into a lockdown because of that.”

The United States canceled flights from China beginning January 31 and the travel ban “saved hundreds of thousands of lives.” After that, protective equipment, therapeutics, testing, and vaccine development were utilized to combat the disease.

The U.S. Administration and “those four vectors of attack has allowed us to reopen the economy, be much better prepared to deal with the Chinese Communist Party virus,” he remarked.

With the resilience of the U.S. economy, he hopes that these efforts will not only “help our people defend themselves from the Chinese Communist Party virus,” but also lead to economic recovery.

Secretary of State: Not Repeating Past Mistakes

In a speech at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Los Angeles on July 23, U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said that previous U.S. administrations imagined that engagement with China would produce prosperity. “Today we’re all still wearing masks and watching the pandemic’s body count rise because the CCP failed in its promises to the world. We’re reading every morning new headlines of repression in Hong Kong and in Xinjiang,” he said.

Secretary Pompeo said that, although Western countries helped the CCP grow its economy, the regime in turn took advantage of that aid and harmed the free world. In addition to domestic surveillance and censorship, it has pushed its communist ideology into press conferences, research centers, schools, news media, and the entertainment industry.

The Secretary of State made a distinction between the Chinese people and the CCP. “I grew up and served my time in the Army during the Cold War. And if there is one thing I learned, communists almost always lie. The biggest lie that they tell is to think that they speak for 1.4 billion people who are surveilled, oppressed, and scared to speak out,” he said. “Quite the contrary. The CCP fears the Chinese people’s honest opinions more than any foe […]”

“And if we don’t act now, ultimately the CCP will erode our freedoms and subvert the rules-based order that our societies have worked so hard to build,” he added.

Secretary Pompeo said that it’s especially so with regard to religious freedom. He wrote in a First Things article on September 18 that “it’s clear that the Sino-Vatican agreement has not shielded Catholics from the Party’s depredations, to say nothing of the Party’s horrific treatment of Christians, Tibetan Buddhists, Falun Gong devotees, and other religious believers.” He emphasized that “What the Church teaches the world about religious freedom and solidarity should now be forcefully and persistently conveyed by the Vatican in the face of the Chinese Communist Party’s relentless efforts to bend all religious communities to the will of the Party and its totalitarian program.”

Secretary Pompeo called on the Vatican to uphold religious freedom and said, “The State Department has been a strong voice for religious freedom in China and around the world and has taken steps to hold those who abuse the faithful responsible for their actions. We will continue to do so.”

Top U.S. Diplomat for East Asia: The CCP Is a Lawless Bully

David Stilwell, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, said on September 17 that the United States was not asking other countries to choose sides, but to stand up to China’s “malign” behavior and to protect their own sovereignty and economic interests.

He said in the past several months there had been “particularly egregious examples of Beijing’s conduct.” From the pandemic to conflicts with neighboring countries, many U.S. officials are aware of aggressive moves on the part of the CCP.

Citing recent cases of the CCP’s campaigns to “wipe out” Mongolian and Tibetan culture, Mr. Stilwell said, “These are not the actions of a responsible global actor, but a lawless bully.”

FBI: New Investigations Related to the CCP Every 10 Hours

Christopher Wray, FBI Director, spoke at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C. on July 7. He said, “It’s the people of the United States who are the victims of what amounts to Chinese theft on a scale so massive that it represents one of the largest transfers of wealth in human history.”

He also told the U.S. Congress on September 17 that CCP infiltration is broad and deep. In fact, the FBI has over 2,000 counterintelligence investigations on China, which form “by far the biggest chunk of our counterintelligence portfolio.

“We are opening a new Chinese counterintelligence investigation about every 10 hours,” he said to the House Homeland Security Committee. Since lots of research and intellectual property are associated with public funding, he said the CCP advances itself by stealing information and wasting taxpayers’ money.

Mr. Wray added that many people in the West are now realizing the threat. “I’m very encouraged by the response we’ve gotten from both the private sector and frankly the academic sector,” he said. “Lately, I think people in this country are starting to wake up to the threat and voluntarily taking appropriate measures.”

Policy Adviser: Beijing Cannot be Trusted

Miles Yu, who was born in China and is the principal China policy and planning adviser to the U.S. Secretary of State, said in a June 15 interview with The Washington Times that “the Chinese system is in fact run by a communist party unwilling to be influenced by the outside world and is determined to create a world order of its own.”

He commented, “That system has become a worthy and serious strategic competitor bolstered by a Marxist-Leninist ideology and China-centered nationalism,” which, he said “has allowed China to try to place itself as the moral and political center of the world — at the expense of the Western liberal order and democracy.”

Mr. Yu made further remarks about the CCP’s crackdown on democracy on September 22 during an online discussion on Hong Kong hosted by the Canadian think tank the Macdonald-Laurier Institute.

He said that “Hong Kong was an ‘experiment to test the validity of [the] Chinese Communist Party’s trustworthiness’ which has failed, revealing to the world that they cannot trust Beijing.”

He pointed out that Beijing walked back its promise to maintain the “one country, two systems” for 50 years by “trying to impose communism and totalitarianism on the Hong Kong people.”

He added, “I think the people in Hong Kong have chosen the system of freedom and the rule of law, not the system of communist autocracy in the name of natural unification.”

U.S. Attorney General William Barr: The U.S. Response to the Global Ambitions of the CCP Is the Most Important Issue in the 21st Century

In a speech on China Policy at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Michigan on July 16, 2020, U.S. Attorney General William Barr issued a warning: “the most important issue for our nation and the world in the twenty-first century — that is, the United States’ response to the global ambitions of the Chinese Communist Party.”

AG Barr said, “The CCP rules with an iron fist over one of the great ancient civilizations of the world. It seeks to leverage the immense power, productivity, and ingenuity of the Chinese people to overthrow the rules-based international system and to make the world safe for dictatorship. How the United States responds to this challenge will have historic implications and will determine whether the United States and its liberal democratic allies will continue to shape their own destiny or whether the CCP and its autocratic tributaries will control the future.”

AG Barr explained that the CCP is no longer hiding its power or biding its time, as the CCP’s General Secretary, Xi Jinping, is speaking openly about its approach to the “center stage,” “building a socialism that is superior to capitalism” and replacing the American dream with “Chinese solutions.”

“To tilt the playing field to its advantage, China’s communist government has perfected a wide array of predatory and often unlawful tactics: currency manipulation, tariffs, quotas, state-led strategic investment and acquisitions, theft and forced transfer of intellectual property, state subsidies, dumping, cyberattacks, and espionage. About 80% of all federal economic espionage prosecutions have alleged conduct that would benefit the Chinese state, and about 60% of all trade secret theft cases have had a nexus to China.”

AG Barr pointed out that China’s progress in key trade routes and infrastructure shows that the CCP’s predatory economic policies are succeeding. For one hundred years, the United States had the world’s largest manufacturing capability, which allowed it to serve as the world’s “arsenal of democracy.” But after China surpassed the United States in manufacturing output in 2010, it quickly rose to the “arsenal of dictatorship” of the world.

“Although Americans hoped that trade and investment would liberalize China’s political system, the fundamental character of the regime has never changed. It remains an authoritarian, one-party state in which the Communist Party wields absolute power, unchecked by popular elections, the rule of law, or an independent judiciary. The CCP surveils its own people and assigns them social credit scores, employs an army of government censors, tortures dissidents, and persecutes religious and ethnic minorities, including a million Uighurs detained in indoctrination and labor camps.”

“If what happened in China stayed in China, that would all be bad enough. But instead of America changing China, China is leveraging its economic power to change America.”

He called for a reassessment of U.S.-China relations. The United States needs the joint efforts of the entire society to resist the CCP’s challenge that threatens future generations.

U.S. Secretary of Defense: The CCP Is Challenging International Rules

Mark Esper, the U.S. Secretary of Defense, published an opinion article in the Wall Street Journal, “The Pentagon Is Prepared For China,” on August 24, 2020. The article pointed out that as CCP leader Xi Jinping was calling to use the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to advance the CCP’s global ambition, the U.S. is prepared to strengthen its network of allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific region, in response to the “new era of global competition between the free and open international order and an authoritarian system fostered by Beijing.”

Esper pointed out that the PLA is not a military that serves the nation or a constitution, but it “belongs to—and serves—a political entity, the Chinese Communist Party.”

He wrote, “The Communist Party’s emphasis on indoctrinating, modernizing and tightening control over the PLA shows how China’s leaders view the military as central to achieving their objectives. Prominent among these is to reshape the international order in ways that undermine globally accepted rules while normalizing authoritarianism, creating conditions to allow the Chinese Communist Party to coerce other countries and impede their sovereignty.”

Esper ended with an appeal: “Nations valuing freedom, human rights and the rule of law must stand together to counter the coercive role of the PLA in the Chinese Communist Party’s aggressive attempts to undermine the sovereignty of nations.”

Senator Ted Cruz: The CCP Is a “New Evil Empire”

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz said in an interview with Jan Jekielek of The Epoch Times that the CCP is the “new evil empire” that is seeking to dominate the globe. The CCP has been trying to subvert all aspects of American society, from politics to economy, from intellectual property to supply chain, from Hollywood to academia, to professional sports like the NBA.

He said that in order to respond to the CCP’s serious geopolitical threat to the U.S., one needs to understand the scope of the regime’s aggression against the U.S., including intellectual property theft, espionage, propaganda, as well as its malign influence campaigns.

The senator also compared the current situation with the U.S.’s cold war with the Soviet Union and how it should use a similar strategy to defeat the CCP.

“For the entirety of the Cold War, we didn’t get in a shooting war with the Soviet Union. Rather—and Reagan understood this the best—we engaged in a systematic, comprehensive effort to shine a light, to use the power of truth, to use economic pressures, to use diplomatic pressures, and to use the incredible power of the American free enterprise system, to defeat them and to bankrupt them.”

Senator Cruz said that the coronavirus pandemic has led to a fundamental reassessment of foreign policy between the United States, China and the world.

“The Chinese people in China, far too many of them, live in poverty and anguish. Communism is a disaster. It doesn’t work. So we need to combat it on the military side. We need to combat it by shining a light. This is something I have tried to do vigorously, is (by) calling out the lies and oppression from China,” he said.

Nowadays, fabricated stories are hitting a dead end. The political power of the CCP is at stake. The top leaders should be worried every day. Officials at all levels are likely seeking their way out. Everyone knows the regime will fall apart on any day...Obviously, sanctions have significantly destabilized the officialdom in Xinjiang.

Chinese Regime Continues to Repress Uyghurs in Xinjiang Despite International Pressure
Commentary by Zhong Yuan
October 7, 2020


The suppression of Muslim Uyghurs in China’s farwestern region of Xinjiang by the Chinese regime has once again become the focus at the United Nations. French President Macron also called for an official investigation at the U.N. General Assembly in September. Despite international criticism, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continues to act recklessly and feels justified about implementing repressive policies in Xinjiang.

What is the Purpose of the Work Forum on Xinjiang?

China’s top leadership, including seven powerful members of the Chinese Communist Party’s Standing Committee, held the third Work Forum on Xinjiang on Sept. 25 and 26. The theme was about building a socialist Xinjiang.

The last Xinjiang Work Forum was held in 2014. This latest Forum was merely held as a formality to address international criticism against the regime’s tyranny.

But in fact, the CCP rejects criticism of China’s internal affairs. During the EU-China Leaders’ Meeting via videoconference on Sept. 14, European Union leaders raised the issue of human rights. Chinese leader Xi Jinping deflected criticism and said the Chinese people will not accept “an instructor” on human rights.

Xi’s speech at the Work Forum first listed and affirmed the “unprecedented achievements” of the regime’s efforts in Xinjiang and that “the Party’s policies on Xinjiang is perfectly right and must continue for the long term,” which includes the “sinicization of Islam” and “the core values of socialism.”

Xi demanded the entire Party to make “implementing the Party’s Xinjiang policies in the new era a political task, always maintaining the correct political orientation of the work related to Xinjiang.”

New Slogans Tell the Same Old Communist Story

Prior to the U.N. General Assembly, Xi Jinping’s slogan “community with a shared future for mankind” was removed from the Commemorative Declaration on the 75th Anniversary of the U.N. Charter. Of course, this is embarrassing to the regime. Xi’s propaganda team had to come up with new slogans to deceive the Chinese in the mainland, such as “community of the Chinese nation,” and a series of derivatives, including “community with the shared Chinese history,” “the pattern of multi-ethnic integration in the Chinese nation,” “the collective consciousness of the Chinese nation,” and the “cultural reinforcement project in Xinjiang” to ensure the direction that “upholds the sinicization of Islam in Xinjiang” is followed.

The CCP bureaucracy again tries to cover up various international embarrassments with new phrases to regain political momentum. Xi also demanded to “display Xinjiang stories in a multi-level, all-round, and three-dimensional manner,” and to “publicize Xinjiang’s excellent social stability” and “happiness.”

Not many people outside China are aware of how far the CCP would go in bolstering its own image. As for the mainland Chinese—under the situation of soaring unemployment, inflated meat prices, frequent natural disasters, and food shortage—they are worried about their livelihood and would care less about the political propaganda on Xinjiang.

Xi is struggling to hold on to his power. He demanded his cadres at all levels to “consciously maintain a high degree of ideological and political alignment with the core Party leadership” and to “ensure that the leadership at all levels is always firmly in the hands of loyal and responsible cadres.”

Nowadays, fabricated stories are hitting a dead end. The political power of the CCP is at stake. The top leaders should be worried every day. Officials at all levels are likely seeking their way out. Everyone knows the regime will fall apart on any day.

Xinjiang Officialdom is Collapsing

Xi Jinping knows that sanctions have left few authorities who would devote themselves to implement policies related to Xinjiang. Therefore, he said to “fully trust,” “boldly select and promote outstanding minority cadres” who “are politically strong and daring.”

Xi’s statement indicates that the local cadres in Xinjiang are ineffective. The so-called achievements in Xinjiang simply implied that the central decision is correct. Xi also said that “cadres of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang are trustworthy and capable of fighting” and “effective measures should be studied and adapted to stabilize the cadre and talent team in Xinjiang.”

Obviously, sanctions have significantly destabilized the officialdom in Xinjiang. However, the high-level CCP officials can do nothing but continue praising its so-called “strategy in Xinjiang” in the Work Forum even though it only serves as another political show.

Premier Li Keqiang presided over the meeting, calling Xi’s speech “a guiding reference for governing Xinjiang in the new era.”

Vice Premier Wang Yang concluded that Xi’s speech is a “powerful ideological weapon” with “high-mindedness, profound thinking, and rich content,” that ought to be “highly publicized in an organized and dynamic manner.”

The audience at Work Forum was huge, including officials at all levels in Xinjiang, as well as members of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China, party secretaries of the Secretariat, state councilors, presidents of the courts, chief prosecutors of the procuratorate, heads of financial institutions and state-owned firms, military leaders, and governors of provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities.

However, if authorities continue to follow the central command to mess around in Xinjiang, more sanctions are likely to follow.

The evidence presented here only skims the surface of what increasingly looks like massive intrusion by a hostile foreign power into American society. That hostile foreign power is not Russia. It’s China.

Race, Revolution, and the Chinese Communist Party

Commentary by Clare M. Lopez
October 8, 2020



“Every Communist must grasp the truth, ‘Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.’”—Mao Zedong, “Problems of War and Strategy” (Nov. 6, 1938), Selected Works, Vol. II, p. 224.

During the 1960s and 1970s, when African-American revolutionaries launched street violence in cities across the United States, their close ideological and personal working relationship with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was very much out in the open. When Black Panther Party leaders Elaine Brown and Huey P. Newton or avowed militant revolutionaries such as Robert Williams visited Beijing in those days, it was often a photo op—sometimes with Mao Zedong himself.

On Aug. 8, 1963, the Peking Review published a statement that Chairman Mao issued at the direct request of Robert Williams, former president of the Monroe, North Carolina, chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and later affiliated with the Socialist Workers Party, the Workers World Party, and members of the Communist Party USA. Mao’s statement was entitled “Statement Supporting the American Negroes in Their Just Struggle Against Racial Discrimination by U.S. Imperialism.”

Mao’s words make reference to the “American Negroes’ struggle against racial discrimination,” and claim that “American Negroes are awakening and their resistance is growing stronger and stronger … [in a] continuous expansion of their mass struggle against racial discrimination and for freedom and equal rights.”

After citing some of the early developments of the U.S. civil rights movement in the early 1960s, Mao called upon “the workers, peasants, revolutionary intellectuals, enlightened elements of the bourgeoisie and other enlightened persons of all colors in the world … to unite to oppose the racial discrimination practised by U.S. imperialism and support the American Negroes in their struggle against the racial discrimination.”

That sort of full-throated, public backing by the top levels of the CCP is absent for the revolution currently being led on America’s streets by the openly Marxist, pro-Maoist Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and its allies among the equally communist Antifa and others. But that doesn’t mean that the ideological affiliation of Antifa and BLM leadership with communism and Beijing or even tangible CCP support for today’s communist street insurrection is absent. It’s just a little more discreet these days.

“We should support whatever the enemy opposes and oppose whatever the enemy supports.”—Mao Zedong, “Interview with Three Correspondents from the Central News Agency, the Sao Tang Pao and the Hsin Min Pao” (Sept. 16, 1939), Selected Works, Vol. II, p. 272.

Clearly, the whole-hearted support of a totalitarian communist regime like Mao’s (with plenty of its own racial and other discriminatory issues) for America’s black revolutionaries was not really about individual liberty, government by consent of the governed, or equality before the law. It wasn’t then and it isn’t now.

Whether Newton, Williams, or any of today’s revolutionaries realized it or not, they were and still are being used by a revolutionary communist movement whose true objectives have less to do with the actual situation of blacks in American society than with its own imperative to overthrow the U.S. constitutional republic and replace it with a Marxist dictatorship.

The leaders at the top of both the CCP and the U.S. revolutionary movement have changed over the decades, but the mission remains the same: revolution; a revolution to overthrow the very foundational principles of America as we know it.

“Revolutions and revolutionary wards are inevitable in class society, and without them it is impossible to accomplish any leap in social development and to overthrow the reactionary ruling classes and therefore impossible for the people to win political power.”—Mao Zedong, “On Contradiction” (August 1937), Selected Works, Vol. I, p. 344.

Then, as now, many have been drawn into revolutionary activism through a process of indoctrination that convinces them that America was founded in moral depravity, that no matter the lofty ideals of our foundational documents and over two centuries of striving to meet those ideals, this country remains a force for evil in the world.

Marxist infiltration of the U.S. educational system, domination of teachers’ associations, co-option of the media, and essential capture of the Democratic Party have convinced generations of Americans that only a violent revolution that overthrows the entire system can lead to the fantasy utopia they have been told will be theirs.

Visits to places such as Castro’s Cuba, Mao’s China, Stalin’s Russia, and the Chavez-Maduro wreckage of Venezuela were and are carefully managed to ensure the horrific magnitude of human suffering and death that are the inevitable result of a Marxist–Leninist–Maoist revolution are never seen.

As long ago as 1936, W.E.B. Du Bois, the African-American activist, historian, socialist, and writer, visited China. Returning there in 1959, he apparently saw enough of a transformation in the country that led him to think Mao’s communists would lead the world in a glorious revolution against capitalism, the free-market system, and the West in general. Other black radicals followed in Du Bois’ footsteps, likewise allowing themselves to be co-opted by the cynical forces of communism to the fanciful dream of a worldwide utopia.

As Manning Johnson, a former American communist, wrote in his 1958 pamphlet, “Color, Communism and Common Sense,” the plot to stir up bloody race and class conflict began with Moscow: “The plot to use the Negroes as the spearhead, or as expendables, was concocted by Stalin in 1928.” Maoism simply picked up where the Soviets left off, adapting Marxism-Leninism to the circumstances of the place and time.

Skipping ahead to the 1960s, it was some of that same Marxist literature that helped to indoctrinate African-American radicals like Huey Newton (who later would lead the Black Panther Party). Newton apparently became enamored of the Maoist revolution in China after reading the four-volume set of the “Selected Works of Mao Tse-Tung.”

Williams, mentioned above, sought to launch a violent revolution in the United States on the model of China and Cuba. Fleeing federal charges in the United States, Williams lived for a time in Cuba, where he wrote “Negroes With Guns” in 1962. By 1966, however, Williams left Cuba and moved to China, where he was witness to the chaotic years of Mao’s Cultural Revolution (which he thought an inspiration for black urban uprisings in the United States), according to a 1999 article by Robin Kelley and Betsy Esch titled “Black Like Mao: Red China and Black Revolution” in the journal Souls.

Inspired by such black Maoist-inspired examples, black members of Students for a Democratic Society and other similar groups began to organize and in 1962 formed the Revolutionary Action Movement (RAM, originally Reform Action Movement). Branches sprang up in cities across the United States. Their cause was Marxism-Leninism through Maoist application to a black liberation movement, to be achieved through violent guerilla warfare on the Maoist model. RAM leaders thought of themselves “as an all-black version of Mao’s Red Army,” according to Kelley and Esch.

Other groups and leaders followed, but with the 1966 founding of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense in Oakland, California, by Newton and Bobby Seale, the direct relationships with Beijing and the top leadership of the CCP, as well as an explicit embrace of Marxist and Maoist thought, intensified.

Again, their idealization of Maoist ideology drew from the Chinese application of classic Marxism-Leninism to the circumstances of the local liberation movement there as well as in the United States. Even the Nixon-Kissinger opening to China in the early 1970s did not change these radicals’ determination to foment communist revolution in America. Mao’s Little Red Book was their inspiration and blueprint.

The original Black Panthers eventually fell apart amid internal conflicts, and Mao died in 1976. But that was not the end of the American black revolutionary movement or its association with the CCP.

Today’s Movement

Fast forward to July 13, 2013, the day that George Zimmerman was acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin: That’s when the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement began with the first use of the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media. The following year, street riots erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, and the movement expanded into a decentralized cell network that spanned the country.

Founded by three African-American self-avowed Marxists—Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors—BLM today espouses the same dedication to violent Marxist revolution as its ideological predecessors. The original 2016 platform of the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) coalition, of which the Black Lives Matter movement is the most visible member, includes demonization of American society as racist, demands for defunding law enforcement in the United States, financial reparations, and an antisemitic characterization of the Jewish State of Israel.

The ideological model is the Marxism of “The Communist Manifesto,” but with the Hegelian dialectical conflict based on race instead of economic class. Their heroes are leaders of the Black Panthers, such as iconic communist Angela Davis, who was tutored by Herbert Marcuse and broadcast encouragement over the loudspeaker to the doomed occupants of the Jim Jones compound in Jonestown, Guyana.

That would be the same Angela Davis who appeared on RT (Russia TV), a Russian state-controlled television channel on July 14, 2020, to express her support for Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential candidacy and to urge people to vote for him.

Assata Shakur is another such hero to the BLM movement. A former member of the Black Liberation Army, she escaped prison and fled to communist Cuba after being sentenced to life for the murder of a State Trooper. BLM street protesters have been seen wearing clothing that says “Assata Taught Me.”

Today, the CCP connection and influence are more prominent than the original Marxist-Leninist ideology. The progenitor of the BLM movement is an openly Marxist, socialist, anti-Israel, pro-boycott–divestment–sanctions movement aligned with Palestinian terrorists in Gaza and Judea/Samaria called the Freedom Road Socialist Organization. Formed in 1985, Freedom Road has its roots in earlier Marxist-Leninist organizations of the 1980s that tended toward Maoist ideology. The group underwent a split in 1999, with Liberation Road separating from the original group that retained its founding name, Freedom Road Socialist Organization. It was from Liberation Road that BLM eventually emerged.

CCP Support

BLM today is directly supported by the CCP in various ways.

Propaganda plays a key role via the United Front Work Department (UFWD) of the CCP’s Central Committee. According to the U.S.–China Economic and Security Review Commission, the UFWD is responsible for co-opting and neutralizing “sources of potential opposition to the policies and authority of its ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP).”

That responsibility extends not just domestically throughout China itself, but abroad as well. Here in the United States, that means seeking to co-opt ethnic Chinese individuals and groups, academia, business, and social groups, but also by targeting host country media reporting.

The UFWD also is likely responsible for extensive attempted influence operations targeting the U.S. elections online and through traditional media sources. There’s the pro-China spam network called the “Spamouflage Dragon” that spews disinformation using fake social media accounts and videos that attack the Trump administration and attempts to stoke racial tension in support of BLM rioting.

In another example, following the late May 2020 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, CCP mouthpiece China Daily led off with a headline claiming “Growing global support for US protests over killing by police,” on June 8, 2020. The report noted “Chinese in San Francisco give strong backing to demonstrators,” despite mentioning “looting and vandalism.” White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, speaking to CNBC in mid-August 2020, accused China of “recruiting and paying over a million citizens to monitor and influence the U.S. 2020 presidential election process,” according to investigative journalist Sara Carter.

The so-called “wu mao” (or 50-cent army), identified in 2016 by the Voice of America as a group of internet commentators, likely is yet another project of the UFWD.

It should also be noted that in July 2020, Freedom Road Socialist Organization claimed credit for sparking the BLM-led riots that have convulsed U.S. cities for months. Trevor Loudon, writing in The Epoch Times, said that there is “evidence that the Beijing-loyal FRSO was not just a catalyst for some of the most destructive civil unrest in U.S. history, but also laid the groundwork for and is playing an active role in maintaining momentum for the ongoing insurrection.”

Financially, too, there’s evidence that points to CCP support for the riots.

Black Futures Lab, founded in September 2018, is a venture of BLM co-founder Alicia Garza, who is listed as the group’s “principal” on its website. Clicking on the site’s “donate” button takes one to an organization called the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA). Black Futures Lab is identified there as a “fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.”

The CPA was founded in San Francisco in 1972 as a pro-People’s Republic of China cultural organization that was then and remains today openly supportive of the Chinese Revolution and regime. There’s a CPA chapter in Boston, Massachussetts, too, where in 2019, the raising of the PRC flag over Boston’s City Hall to honor the communist takeover of China was organized together with the Chinese consulate in New York City.

On top of the obvious influence operations emanating from the CCP, the connection of a group like Garza’s Black Futures Lab via the intermediary of the CPA to the CCP should raise additional concern about just how deeply Beijing is involved in the BLM Global Network.

Despite the careful appearance of an organic, spontaneous movement, the BLM-led riots on the streets are anything but random. Even aside from the openly symbiotic alignment along Maoist lines, the level of coordination at both the local and national levels for what is clearly a communist insurrection bespeaks of extensive organization, preparation, as well as ongoing backing, funding, and support.

The evidence presented here only skims the surface of what increasingly looks like massive intrusion by a hostile foreign power into American society. That hostile foreign power is not Russia. It’s China.

“All of it has to end. Its criminal activity that must be recognized and stood against by the whole world community. And the United States must lead.” --Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.)


https://youtu.be/xFoU6mF5KyI


It Is Time to Recognize the CCP as a Transnational Criminal Organization?

Commentary by Long Ju
October 9, 2020




On Oct. 1, as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was celebrating the 71st anniversary of its takeover of China, a U.S. bill was introduced to designate the CCP a “transnational criminal organization.”

U.S. Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) introduced the legislation. He said the CCP “cannot be given a pass, cannot be absolved of justice just because it’s ruling China, and that’s what’s happened. Because they can declare themselves as the legitimate government of China they are allowed to get away with it.”

“They are allowed to get away with the oppression, concentration camp, all kinds of horrific things that you already know about. Whether it’s the Falun Gong, whether it’s our friends in Mongolia, whether it’s taking over Tibet, all of it has to end,” he continued, referring to Beijing’s persecution of the ancient spiritual practice, erosion of Mongolian cultural customs, and suppression of Tibetan Buddhists, respectively.

“All of it has to end. Its criminal activity that must be recognized and stood against by the whole world community. And the United States must lead.”

If it takes a domino effect to “tear down the wall,” I believe that this bill serves as the first domino that will bring down the wall that has blocked the innocent Chinese from the free world and from learning the truth about the nature of the CCP for more than seven decades.

During this time, the Chinese population has paid the price of the CCP destroying the country. The top one percent, which includes the elite ruling class, own more than 90 percent of the national wealth. At least 84.1 percent of the population belong to the lower class of Chinese society and suffer from tyranny and injustice, while the rest are the ones who would most likely defend the CCP. It is the CCP dictatorship that has brainwashed these people. They don’t represent all Chinese, but their voices are heard by the outside world.

Recently, a professor at Shenyang University of Technology, Zhao Shengye, posted online his plans to “destroy the world.” He proposed to detonate a nuclear submarine loaded with nuclear warheads in the Pacific Ocean; detonate thousands of nuclear bombs in the Himalayas at the same time; and detonate thousands of nuclear bombs implanted deep in the Sichuan Basin.

Why did he post such plans? As he claimed, “It’s the ultimate solution … when they (Americans) intervene in Chinese affairs,” to resolutely safeguard the rule of the CCP.

Such ideas are exactly the same as the CCP’s approach of using unrestricted warfare. This mentality was clearly depicted by the spread of the CCP virus (novel coronavirus) that has killed countless Chinese citizens and many people worldwide.

According to a Chinese report on Gnews.org, Zhao Shengye is the founder of the Honker Union of China, also known as H.U.C., a group of Chinese hackers of extreme patriotism and nationalism that are over 80,000 strong. Of the many cyberattacks launched by the group, the 2001 hacking of the White House site is the most well-known. The group’s views represent those who insist on communism and the core mentality of the CCP to destroy the world at any cost. The report also indicated that if it were not for the acquiescence of the CCP’s propaganda system, such a shocking remark would have been deleted by Chinese cyber police. Therefore, it is obvious that Zhao is backed by the CCP. His views also suggest the final struggle of the CCP.

Under the deceitful ruling of the CCP, the world has revolved around its tyranny, whether intentional or not. However, the scourge of the pandemic has awakened us all.

As U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo mentioned in his trip to Italy: “The piece was written and our policy has been all along to bring every actor who can benefit the people of China from—to take away the horrors of the authoritarian regime the Chinese Communist Party is inflicting on these people. That was our mission set, and it will remain our mission set. Long—it’s been so long before the election; it will remain so after the election.”

Coincidences in Vancouver Suggest China Money Laundering Funding Disruption in US

Commentary by John Mills
October 9, 2020; Updated October 10, 2020



In more innocent times, Vancouver, British Columbia, was a natural landing point for family wealth from Hong Kong and China as they transited their funds to buy homes, real estate, and other things. Some of this was done lawfully, some, maybe not as much.

Growing up in Seattle, I had plenty of Asian friends that would casually, and innocently mention these family transactions. It meant little to me at the time, back then life was simpler. A sweet and innocent time.

More recently though, the flavor and nature of these financial movements has taken a much darker, strategic, and sinister nature. I’ve been in Vancouver multiple times in the past few years, and it has been very hard for me to not run into imperious Han inner-circle elite in their expensive cars tending to their nice homes. They stand out and are noticeable, so must I because of the way they immediately take notice in me.

We dialogue about what each of us are doing in Vancouver. Are they buying these homes as the vanguard of an invasion or as an insurance policy and landing point if the CCP collapses? The answer is clear—yes.

The Big Circle Boys and the BC Casinos

Sam Cooper and other Canadian reporters have done heroic work documenting the hard turn of the legacy money flow into Vancouver from Hong Kong and China. The Big Circle Boys, a long-standing, organized crime element from Hong Kong has been transformed into a violent, militant, and essentially para-military extension of the CCP.

Recently, the “victimless” crime nature of these cash movements has changed as violent gun battles and murders have occurred. It’s no longer simply about families sneaking money into the country to buy a second home.

It’s about Fentanyl—which the CCP is using as “Agent Orange” to de-populate the United States and Canada en masse. It’s about guns, it’s about drugs, it’s about real estate, it’s about laundering large cash transactions, it’s about influence operations.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have even cited terrorist links. The RCMP “Sidewinder” report from 1997 sounded a klaxon of danger on this topic. Not officially released, the Sidewinder Report is the equivalent of the more contemporary Snowden leak of classified information in U.S. circles.

Elmer Yuen, a former resident of Hong Kong and now a leading advocate of defeating the CCP confirms the transformation of the Big Circle organization into an extension of CCP power and influence.

If you want to launder large of amounts of cash wired into a country, there is almost no better way than a casino, and the Big Circle Boys seem to have a controlling interest of the entire Casino environment in British Columbia. Simply put, casinos are hubs of corruption.

Curious Geographic Coincidences

Coincidently, and there are no coincidences in this business, a group called nondescriptly, “Adbusters” is based in Vancouver. It’s also the same group that was, and perhaps still is planning the “Siege of Washington D.C.” to disrupt the American election.

The Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) also has a large footprint in Vancouver, a group that has been tied directly to the CCP and the CPA has been tied to Black Lives Matters. CCP related media and personalities like Chen Weihua have referenced a relationship and interest in BLM and Antifa. Trevor Loudon has magnificently laid out the architecture of the complex web of activities and first pointed out Adbusters and their possible relationship to U.S. domestic unrest.

Seattle and Portland are just two to four hours down the road from Vancouver. Another interesting coincidence is that the Washington Gaming Casino system straddles I-5 on this route and provides other opportunities for corruption and laundering. The geographic co-location of large amounts of cash, groups acting as CCP proxies, and convenient laundering opportunities is a red flag that merits national level attention of U.S. Intelligence and Law Enforcement.

Riot Kitchen in Seattle has been a proxy of a proxy as the Seattle based logistical support element of inter-state violence. A Presidential issuance on Sept. 2, 2020 followed shortly by a Department of Justice memo identified Seattle and Portland as hubs of violent activity and established the theme of the failure of mayors and governors to provide “Equal Protection” to the citizenry—an incredibly important legal foundation of our Constitution.

So what’s the point with all these coincidences? In my career I’ve found a truth—don’t ever assume that the intelligence and law enforcement resources of the United States are looking in the right direction, at the right time, for the right evidence, on the right issue. Obvious coincidences are often not being looked at. I’ve seen incredible volumes of collection data discarded because they weren’t on the priorities list to be reviewed.

Influence Operations

Whether talking about Al-Qaeda extremists or Chinese influence operations, the fuel of the black arts is the same: cash.

An al-Qaeda operative is quoted by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States as saying, “There are two things a brother must always have for jihad, the self and money.”

In the old days, the United States Intelligence Community and State Department under the legendary Dulles Brothers brought this to a high art form. I would argue, we were a force for good in the bare knuckle, constant alleyway brawl with the Soviet Union in the earlier days of the Cold War.

The Soviets wanted to play tough and we showed them we could also, and often outmaneuvered them through a better argument, some gloves off work ourselves, and yes, sometimes cash. As time went on, the Vietnam experience soured and distracted us, and then with the Senator Frank Church hearings, this high art form for good was lost.

A more positive and uplifting representation of the return of this high art form of intelligence and law enforcement strategy for good was the magnificent work in shutting down CCP interference in the Taiwanese elections in January 2020. After a quick strategy huddle a law was quickly framed, passed, and enforced “The Anti-Infiltration Law” and Taiwan moved with alacrity to shut down CCP money on the street.

Han Kuo, the CCP-funded opponent, went from hero to zero and now has been thrown out of office. Bravo to President Tsai—she and her staff executed flawlessly a blocking and tackling model on how to protect democracy from CCP election meddling.

Pivoting U.S. Government Capabilities

The answer is simple to mobilize U.S. Federal resources; secretaries of the departments and heads of agencies must re-order the priorities lists. It’s time for Secretary Pompeo to demarche Canadian Ambassador David MacNaughton and time for the Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and DHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf to pivot, focus, and intensify the resources to ascertain the meaning of these coincidences.

Attorney General Barr re-prioritized the focus of the Department of Justice in July—China is now job one. It takes a little while to turn the ship of the United States government, but things are now happening, and the U.S. government is strategically disassembling the CCP activities in the United States.

Canada and the U.S. Government should exercise their historic relationships and friendships to more diligently address the curious, high-cash operations, enabled by CCP associated groups in Vancouver, BC.
