The Biden administration has quietly scrapped a proposal by the Trump administration to safeguard U.S. academic freedom from the threat of Beijing-funded Confucius Institutes (CI).

The proposed rule, named “Establishing Requirement for Student and Exchange Visitor Program Certified Schools to Disclose Agreements with Confucius Institutes and Classrooms,” was submitted by the Trump administration to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Dec. 31, 2020.

Under the rule, colleges and K–12 schools that are certified to host foreign exchange programs would need to disclose their financial ties to CIs and the affiliated Confucius Classrooms.

Last month, an unidentified DHS official told Axios that the rule would also apply to “any other cultural institutes or student groups, such as Chinese Students and Scholars Associations, that are funded directly or indirectly by China.”

Epstein-Linked Prince Andrew Inaugurated 1000th Chinese Propaganda Group, Accompanied By Xi Jinping..

Xi hails role of Confucius institutes


Prince Andrew, who “lobbied” the U.S. government to grant Jeffrey Epstein a lighter sentence and is the subject of intense speculation, inaugurated a Confucius Classroom alongside President Xi Jinping in 2015, praising the propaganda-ridden initiative as a boon for collaboration.

However, Confucius Classrooms, the primary school complement to college-level Confucius Institutes, have been identified by Members of the British Parliament as “an endeavor by the Chinese Communist Party to spread its propaganda and suppress its critics beyond its borders” rife with espionage and intellectual property theft.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) itself has confirmed these charges, with a high-ranking apparatchik disclosing Confucius Institutes to an “important part of China’s overseas propaganda set-up.”


A Confucius Classroom was launched in the British Crown Dependency of Jersey, and Prince Andrew unveiled its dedicatory plaque alongside….

Universities Round the World Fail to Stand up to China: Report…

The headquarters of the Confucius Institute in Beijing is shown in a file photo.

Universities and colleges around the world are “unprepared” to deal with threats to freedom of speech on campus and academic freedom among their scholars as a result of political pressure from Beijing, a New York-based rights group said on Friday.

“Institutions of higher learning around the world should resist the Chinese government’s efforts to undermine academic freedom abroad,” Human Rights Watch (HRW) said.

“Few have moved to protect academic freedom against longstanding problems, such as visa bans on scholars working on China or surveillance and self-censorship on their campuses,” it said.

“Many colleges and universities around the world with ties to the Chinese government, or with large student populations from China, are unprepared to address threats to academic freedom in a systematic way,” the group warned.

Chinese academics from labs linked to military who studied in Australia

University of Wollongong

Two scholars at a NSW university have been linked to Chinese research centres that have reportedly carried out cyber attacks and espionage for the nation’s military.

Key points:

  • Two visiting professors at the University of Wollongong may have ties to “high-risk” Chinese schools
  • The University of Aus said it is concerned about the allegations
  • The Australian Strategic Policy Institute said the professors’ links should be probed

One of the scholars attended the University of Wollongong’s (UOW) cybersecurity centre several years ago while visiting from a Chinese laboratory allegedly implicated in executing cyber attacks against foreign countries.

The other scholar, who is working at the university, is visiting from a Chinese physics academy considered “very high-risk” by security experts due to its ties to the country’s nuclear weapons program.

A third academic, a professor who was accused by US media outlets of being a military liaison, co-authored a recent research paper on encrypted coding with the UOW.

The revelations come 24 hours after the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) released a report warning Australian universities were unwittingly creating security risks by collaborating with Chinese schools.

China – Australian toddler caught up in Beijing’s ‘hostage diplomacy’

There are concerns a two-year-old Australian citizen trapped in Xinjiang province in China is caught up in what experts call a growing use of “hostage diplomacy” by Beijing.

Key points

  • The Australian Government has repeatedly asked China to allow Nadila Wumaier and her son Lutfy, who is an Australian citizen, to travel to Australia
  • The ABC understands China is insisting the case an “internal matter” because Lutfy is a dual citizen
  • Experts believe Beijing is using the toddler’s case to express its displeasure with the Morrison Government

China has increasingly been accused of detaining international citizens to order to bully, coerce or retaliate against foreign governments.

Lutfy is an Australian citizen with an Australian passport and his mother Nadila Wumaier has a valid Australian visa but the Chinese Communist Party has banned them from leaving.

They are trapped in Xinjiang, where it is estimated more than 1 million Uyghurs are currently being detained in re-education camps, while those not detained have had their passports taken away, making it impossible for them to leave China

A few weeks after the family’s case was revealed by Four Corners in July, the Australian consul-general in Beijing met with the director of consular affairs at the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs about Lutfy’s case.

Foreign Minister Payne then raised the toddler’s plight during talks in Bangkok with top-level Chinese diplomats in early August.

China Forces Muslim Imams To Dance On The Street And Scream That They Will Never Preach The Islamic Religion…

china imams

The government of China recently forced Muslim imams to dance in the street and scream that they will never preach on the Islamic religion. According to one mid-east report:

In the Muslim majority district of Xinjiang on Monday, imams were forced by the Chinese state to dance in the street holding banners that read “our income comes from the CKP not from Allah,” according to World Bulletin.

The imams were also made to swear an oath that they would not teach religion to children on the grounds that prayer “is unhealthy and harmful to the soul.” Teachers in the district were forced to take a similar oath, also swearing to teach their students to stay away from mosques.

Surge in arrests of foreign teachers in China…

Arrests and deportations of foreign teachers in China have soared this year, lawyers, schools and teachers say, amid a broad crackdown defined by new police tactics and Beijing’s push for a “cleaner”, more patriotic education system.

Four law firms told Reuters that requests for representation involving foreign teachers had surged in the past six months by between four and tenfold, while teachers and schools confirmed arrests and temporary detentions for minor crimes had become commonplace.

Switzerland-based Education First (EF), which runs 300 schools across 50 Chinese cities, has seen a “significant” increase in detentions in China for alleged offences including drugs, fighting and cybersecurity violations, according to a June 27 internal notice sent to employees and seen by Reuters.

China issues Passport Information to University Staff….


Australia: Beijing’s passport order to University of Technology Sydney staff

Academic staff at University of Technology Sydney refused to hand over personal details, including their passport numbers, after China’s Education Ministry demanded the information to continue a course for visiting students.

Science faculty associate dean for international partnerships ­Graham Nicholson told 21 UTS academics they were required to disclose their passport numbers and dates of birth “as part of the ongoing review of this program” by the ministry.

“You may be concerned by the request for your passport number,” he said in an email obtained by The Australian. “In China, all citizens have an identity card. As we don’t have these in Australia the next best ­option for them is your current passport number.”

Ghostwriting services coaxing Chinese international students into cheating…

A person writing with a blue pen.

Sally Zhang* recently bought an essay from a ghostwriter for the first time — not because she struggles to write, but rather so she could enjoy an early holiday.

Key points:

  • The Government has proposed legislation making it an offence to provide or advertise so-called “contract cheating” services
  • Some students pay hundreds of dollars to have ghostwriters complete their assignments
  • Research shows a global increase in students using contract cheating services in recent years

Ms Zhang, a Chinese international student who is undertaking a postgraduate degree at the University of Western Australia, took up the service on WeChat last month after being bombarded with offers from various ghostwriting agencies under the guise of friend requests.

“[The ghostwriting agencies] send me messages from time to time,” she said.

“They often post ads on their WeChat moments with tempting words like ‘It’s almost the holiday. Throw us your assignments, go and enjoy yourself.”

Ms Zhang told the ABC she paid $600 for a 3,000-word project proposal and is still waiting for her grade.

However, businesses offering such services could soon be made illegal under legislation proposed by the Federal Government earlier this week.

People found guilty under the proposed law — which will make it an offence to provide or advertise so-called “contract cheating” services — could face up to two years in prison or a fine of up to $210,000.
