China’s Xi Jinping Tightens Grip on Domestic Security Forces in First Broad Purge

A senior ally of Chinese leader Xi Jinping called for a Mao-style purge of China’s domestic-security apparatus last month, saying it was time to “turn the blade inwards and scrape the poison off the bone.”

The cleansing commenced swiftly.

Within the first week after the call to action, Communist Party enforcers had launched investigations…

Time for Western Universities to Cut Their Ties to #CCP #China..

 
FOREIGN POLICY ILLUSTRATION

It’s time for Western universities to close their Confucius Institutes and end their academic cooperation with China. In the three decades following the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, one of the ways China sought to rebuild its image abroad was by systematically forging partnerships with Western universities.

At first, these partnerships mainly focused on research collaboration. Later, they grew to include the Confucius Institutes for language education, generous funding for various joint projects, and the establishment of Western universities’ branch campuses in China.

Chinese Consulate in Houston Intervened & supported BLM in US Political Movement; helped by Huawei and TikTok?

#China‘s consulate in #Houston promoted riot techniques among BlackLivesMatter  protesters through social media micro-targeting:

Radio Free Asia (RFA) published an article explaining the reason that the U.S. closed China’s Consulate in Houston.

The article stated that the U.S. has known that the staff members at the consulate were conducting suspicious activities, but, for a while, it did not take any action. The Second Department of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), which is the PLA’s intelligence unit, sent staff members from a large network company, with fake IDs, to China’s Consulate in Houston. Those technicians used a large video platform’s backend data to identify people who might participate in the Black Lives Matter (BLM) and ANTIFA’s protests and then created and sent them customized videos on how to organize riots and how to do promotions.

The purpose was to “weaponize” big data technology. It delivered relevant materials precisely to those people who were most likely to participate in the protests, while other people could not even find those videos.

RFA did not spell out the company names. A Twitter account said the technicians were from Huawei and the video platform they used to identify candidates and push videos to was TikTok.

BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s military said on Wednesday the latest U.S. navy sailing near Chinese-claimed Taiwan was “extremely dangerous” and stirring up such trouble was in neither country’s interests.

The U.S. guided-missile destroyer USS Mustin sailed through the narrow and sensitive Taiwan Strait on Tuesday, the U.S. navy said, in what have become relatively routine trips in recent months, though they always anger China.

CCP Newspaper Endorses Joe Biden….

The Global Times is a daily tabloid newspaper and voice of the Chinese Communist Party in Beijing.

On Thursday (China time), on the same day as Joe Biden’s much anticipated Democrat Party convention speech, the Chinese Communist newspaper endorsed Joe Biden for President of the United States.

The Global Times says Joe Biden may reactivate the job-killing TPP and the Iran nuclear deals pushed by the Obama administration.

China is rooting for a weak America.
Trump is rooting for a strong America.

The stance would mirror that at the World Cup in Russia 2018 two months after the Novichok gas attack in Salisbury.

A senior minister said: “Awkward conversations are having to be had about it.”

On Tuesday night a government source insisted that no decision had yet been made.

However ex-Cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith urged the Government to lobby the International Olympic Committee to change the venue.
