US Needs to ‘Wake Up’ Before Passing the Point of No Return | CLIP



Nicolas Chaillan, former Chief Software Engineer for the US Air Force, says that the US must ‘wake up’ to the threat posed by China in the field of artificial intelligence before the point of no return. Chaillan explains that, since artificial intelligence is self-learning, it is the quantity of data that determines its effectiveness. Because all companies in China must work with the CCP regime, Beijing has access to more data than the US Dept. of Defense.

Heavy smog hit over 90 Chinese cities; US focusing on readiness to China threat | China in Focus​



The United States says it’s prepared to confront China’s threat, after reports that Beijing has built mock-ups of U.S. warships in a remote desert. Top U.S. officials voice concerns about the life of a citizen journalist in China. She was sentenced to prison for reporting on what really happened during the height of the pandemic in Wuhan. Beijing has been collecting Americans’ DNA data, but what makes those details especially attractive for the Chinese regime? We dive into what drives the effort. Poor air quality remains a major issue in China—but the nation’s pollution is now causing trouble elsewhere. A Chinese-owned steel mill is coating one Serbian town in dust, sending cancer rates soaring. Germany takes action to ensure stability in the Indo-Pacific. For the first time in 20 years, the country has sent a warship to Japan. A film director uses his latest movie to expose the Chinese Communist Party’s human rights abuses. What’s more, it’s already won an award at an Oscar-contending film festival.

Is China gearing up for war?; Top official: US is resident power in Asia | China in Focus​



The Chinese regime is hinting at war. From a landing exercise simulating an invasion across the Taiwan strait, to increasing benefits for military members. Is the regime seriously preparing for an invasion? Or just launching an information war across the strait? The United States holds firm on its commitment to the Indo-Pacific. The nation clarified that stance to two of its important partners in the region: Australia and Japan. A top meeting of Communist Party officials has come to an end. Party leader Xi Jinping has become the country’s second-ever “helmsman”–after China’s first communist leader Mao Zedong. And, thousands of Chinese taxis are lining streets in protest–honking their honks and clogging up traffic. The desperate drivers say they’re struggling to survive.

Miles Yu: U.S. Needs to Have “Moral Clarity” to Counter the CCP Threats | Focus Talk​



Miles Yu, former adviser to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, warned that the Chinese Communist Party is trying to export a Global Governance model that is totalitarian, and that the China challenge is ultimately a matter of Freedom vs. Tyranny. U.S. needs to have the “moral clarity” to lead this fight and protect people’s unalienable rights. In this exclusive interview, Dr. Yu also shared how seeing that the 1.4 billion Chinese people in China not having the freedom to exercise their conscience really motivated him to participate in this fight.

Chris Balding: How Does China View the Sino-US Cold War? | CLIP | American Thought Leaders​



Chris Balding describes what he calls an “intellectual difficulty” that many US officials seem to be facing in their reluctance to accept the fact that the US and China are in a de facto Cold War with each other. Whether the US wants conflict or not, Balding says, is irrelevant. What is important for the US is to look at how China and CCP leader Xi Jinping view the situation, and react to that.

Oxford University researchers have discovered the densest element yet known to science.



The new element, Governmentium (symbol=Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called pillocks. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete. Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2 to 6 years.

It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganisation in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganisation will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.

This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as a critical morass.

When catalysed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium (symbol=Ad), an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium, since it has half as many pillocks but twice as many morons.

What China Invading Taiwan Would Mean to U.S. & World; Is BlackRock Selling Out America?​



“What we've seen is a force-modernization commitment and effort over the past 25 years on the part of the Chinese, and as their country has gotten wealthier, they've had more resources to invest in a military,” says US-Taiwan Business Council President, Rupert Hammond-Chambers. He believes that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is “one hundred percent serious about invasion” of Taiwan, and that the U.S., and the world more broadly, has vested interest in seeing Taiwan is able to continue with ‘business as usual.’ Taiwan’s production of semiconductor chips–which feature in everything from smart phones to children’s soft toys–provides just one compelling example of this: “Those factories in Taiwan, if China invaded, [would] be turned off. So not only would they not get access to those chips, we wouldn't either as well.” Would U.S. (and other) forces arrive in time to stave off a sudden CCP invasion, and how would Taiwan stand on its own in the interim?

China denies activist’s mom’s plea to see son; China: outrage after health workers kill dog​



Anger flares after brutal action by Chinese pandemic prevention workers. Their killing of a pet dog was caught on tape. The United States and China engaged in top-level dialog, but without a major breakthrough. President Joe Biden and Communist Party leader Xi Jinping formally met for the first time since Biden took office. But after the meeting, Beijing again sent military aircraft flying over Taiwan, in an apparent threat to the self-ruled island. An elderly mother seeks to visit her only son, imprisoned in China. But she’s faced multiple rejections by authorities, all because of her son’s human rights activism. And, reports say Beijing is again lobbying U.S. business communities—this time, to influence legislation that would boost U.S. competitiveness.

Taiwan deploys F-16V jets amid China threats; China and the growing arms race in Asia​



Asia’s arms race is growing. Aggression has led countries in the area into a deadly game of keeping up with the Joneses. Beijing is nearing an initial capability to invade Taiwan, warns a U.S. congressional advisory body. On the other side, Taiwan is preparing for all possibilities with an advanced model of fighter jet. A record-high number of Americans have died from drug overdose, and chemicals from China are playing a major role in it. Reports emerge of discrimination in China’s education sector. Practicing a spiritual meditation system may lead to teachers losing their jobs. The German chancellor says her country was naive at first—when it comes to dealing with China.

‘Temptation to strike first’: Rick Fisher on the dangers of China’s growing space ambitions​



In this special episode, we sat down with Rick Fisher, senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center. He talks about China’s growing space ambitions—from the Moon, to Mars, to asteroids. Fisher touched on China’s recent #HypersonicMissile test, saying, “If China saw advantage in hitting any other country first with a nuclear weapon, it would do so. But an added danger is added with the advent of the fractional orbital bombardment system and the hypersonic glide vehicle, because that then gives China the option to use a non-nuclear warhead to achieve a strategic or near-strategic effect. And so the temptation to strike first with that weapon would be very high.”

China blocks Lithuania’s exports; 52% Americans see China as top threat: poll | China in Focus​



The Chinese Communist Party says China is a democracy in its own form, as Beijing complains about a freedom summit hosted by the United States. One nation in Europe is boycotting the Beijing Olympics. Its announcement comes while China blocks exports from the country. iPhone sales have taken the lead in the Chinese market. Apple is snapping up market share left behind by Huawei, as the tech giant has remained on the decline for two years. A major Chinese company plans to delist from the New York Stock Exchange. It’s now feeling the pressure on two sides, from both the United States and China. Half of China’s workforce reports a monthly income of less than $160. Communist Party officials, on the other hand, are getting rich.

Free Trade is a farce.. companies didn’t move to Mexico, they moved to China 🇨🇳
Wow, next thing you'll be telling us is water is wet and the sun comes up in the east. :D I'm pretty sure most of us were aware of that, but things could be changing. Wages aren't as "competitive" for foreign investors anymore, not to mention the string of crap the CCP has been pulling. They're starting to look elsewhere in the region where they can pay cheaper wages while dealing with a less asshole-y govt than China.

Water isn't wet because it is a liquid that wets things. Once you come into contact with water you become wet. Until then water is liquid and you are dry.

Future of warfare: US, China race for AI dominance; Apple’s secret $275B deal with Chinese regime​



Some suspect future wars will be defined by artificial intelligence. And that the first nation to harness AI will gain a decisive advantage on the battlefield for years to come. Right now, China is edging closer to gaining the upper hand. So how far has China gotten in developing its AI? Why are they advancing so fast? What could losing the AI race with China really mean, for the U.S. and the free world? And what is the Chinese Communist Party’s ultimate goal? Documents reveal an agreement deal between tech giant Apple and Beijing. The deal involved hundreds of billions of dollars, but what exactly did each side get out of it? And the list of countries boycotting the Beijing Olympics grows. Taking the United States’ lead, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada have announced they won’t send officials to the Games.
