Scores of Chinese and foreign companies producing “well-known global brands” may be involved in human trafficking, forced labour and other human rights abuses in China’s Xinjiang region, a United Nations working group said on Monday, calling more attention to an issue that Beijing is increasingly on the defensive about.

China seems to be on a “hoarding spree,” stockpiling strategic commodities-Many Supplied by US

Frank Dong – The Epoch Times.

China seems to be on a “hoarding spree,” stockpiling strategic commodities from chips, minerals to grains and cotton. In its global purchases, the United States is one of its largest suppliers.

Beijing has been hoarding chips. Industry experts believe China’s nationwide hoarding played a role in the global chip shortage. In fact, China’s State Administration for Market Regulation in August launched a probe into hoarding and other speculative practices as the regime found it disrupted its own market.

How China’s CCP is colonizing the Commonwealth; building its own empire and enslaving a million Uighurs

Putting an end to the Queen’s 55-year-long role as its head of state, Barbados this week became a republic. But more significantly, as well as losing a monarch, the West Indian island gained an emperor

Putting an end to the Queen’s 55-year-long role as its head of state, Barbados this week became a republic. But more significantly, as well as losing a monarch, the West Indian island gained an emperor.

For, in place of Elizabeth II, a new ruler is lurking behind the scenes: the Chinese strongman leader-for-life Xi Jinping. Continue reading “How China’s CCP is colonizing the Commonwealth; building its own empire and enslaving a million Uighurs”

China Exported ‘Pandemic Tyranny’ to the World; Side-Effects of Stripping Away People’s Rights – [VIDEO]

In certain aspects, China’s early “handling” of the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak–in particular, its draconian lockdowns–set the tone for the erosion of civil liberties continuing across the world in the name of “pandemic response.”

In this episode, I’m joined by veteran journalist and ‘The Epoch Times’ contributor, Lee Smith. We look at the mechanisms by which Western “democracies” have been steered towards negating the rights of citizens, and the Chinese Communist Party’s hand in this.

“If you treat your populations like an occupied people, they will come to treat you like an occupying power.”

What consequences await those governments and “leaders” who continue to override the rights of the people they’re intended to serve?

Canada – Behind the Liberals’ Latest China CCP Approach

Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said publicly last week that China is a main source of the fentanyl that’s fueling a deadly opioid crisis in Canada.

Blair’s remarks marked a shift in the Liberal government’s public tone on the fentanyl issue and China’s role. When asked by The Epoch Times for comment in the past, Blair’s ministry made no mention of China, merely saying the government is “committed to doing everything we can” to address the drug crisis. This stood in contrast to calls by the Opposition Conservatives and Alberta Premier Jason Kenney for Ottawa to hold Beijing to account for the crisis.

Yet in his address at the parliamentary Canada-China relations committee on Feb. 25, Blair still refused to talk about Huawei and security concerns and whether the Chinese telecom giant with links to Beijing will be banned from Canada’s 5G networks.

Made in China: Tofu Buildings - Bringing you Truth ...

“Tofu buildings” refer to structures in China that don’t meet quality standards, like the one shown in this video, which show a man easily removing the door frame with his bare hands.

People in the video apparently bought apartment units in this building, which is located in Beijing. The developer says construction is completed and buyers can take over.

Five countries just pulled out of the Pacific Islands Forum. This is geopolitically more important than it might seem. It is a very serious strategic problem which raises questions that get to the heart of some of the West’s most sensitive alliances. Did Australia, New Zealand, and France  deliberately coordinate to sideline the United States in an area where China is highly active? And is the Five Eyes still fit for purpose?

Breaking down what happened – and the possible implications – highlights issues that, if not resolved, could lead to aircraft carrier-sized cracks the West’s Indo-Pacific defenses, including along the strategically crucial first and second island chains.

The Pacific Islands Forum (PIF)

The PIF is a regional political grouping that, until last week, consisted of 18 members and covered a vast, resource rich, highly strategic zone on the front line between Asia and the Americas.

China in “desperate” new push for French nuclear tech: Intelligence

The Chinese Government is seeking to add nuclear power-plants to its suite of “debt-trap diplomacy” tools, in moves that could seriously undermine regional and international security, French and US intelligence agencies warn. They say Beijing is pushing to rekindle a “seriously concerning” deal that would see sensitive “civilian” nuclear technology pass to the architects of China’s nuclear weapons program.

The Sand Dredger; China’s latest weapon against Taiwan….

Taiwanese coast guard commander Lin Chie-ming is on the frontline of a new type of warfare that China is waging against Taiwan. China’s weapon? Sand.

On a chilly morning in late January, Lin, clad in an orange uniform, stood on the rolling deck of his boat as it patrolled in choppy waters off the Taiwan-run Matsu Islands. A few kilometers away, the Chinese coast was faintly visible from Lin’s boat. He was on the lookout for Chinese sand-dredging ships encroaching on waters controlled by Taiwan.

The Chinese goal, Taiwanese officials say: pressure Taiwan by tying down the island democracy’s naval defenses and undermining the livelihoods of Matsu residents.

Half an hour into the patrol, Lin’s nine-man crew spotted two 3,000-ton dredgers, dwarfing their 100-ton vessel. Parked just outside Taiwan’s waters…

Indonesian authorities said two seized supertankers suspected of illegally transferring oil over the weekend were “caught red-handed” and are making their way to dock for further investigation.

The Iranian-flagged MT Horse and the Panamanian Freya were seized on Sunday in waters off Indonesia’s West Kalimantan province and escorted to Batam island in the country’s Riau Islands Province, according to the Indonesian coast guard.

“The ships will arrive in Batam at around 3 p.m. (0600GMT) to 4 p.m. later today,” coast guard spokesman Wisnu Pramandita told Reuters.

Officials with the Indonesian coast guard caught the tankers “red-handed” in an alleged illegal ship-to-ship oil transfer while also recovering an oil spill around Freya, the receiving tanker.
