What are the serious dangers when the Chinese communists take over? This was asked to Joseph Humire, a national security expert at the Center for a Secure Free Society.
US Officials warn Chinese firms could attempt to steal intellectual property, cut into Washington’s foodstuff exports profits, undermine American supply chains, and even target US genetically-modified crops with biological warfare.
Is China decoupling from the outside world? The Chinese regime says it wants the opposite. But sweeping lockdown measures are driving foreigners and their businesses out of the country. At the same time, more restrictions are on the way for Chinese citizens going abroad, while the values praised by the regime drift farther from Western principals.

DAKAR (Reuters) – The terms of China’s loan deals with developing countries are unusually secretive and require borrowers to prioritize repayment of Chinese state-owned banks ahead of other creditors, a study of a cache of such contracts showed on Wednesday.
Environmentalists have welcomed the Prosecution Office’s decision to investigate the impact of highway construction work by the China Road and Bridge Corporation, CRBC, on the UNESCO-protected Tara River.
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 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.
BAODING, CHINA – Beaten, forced off their land, cheated out of money, and even falsely imprisoned — farmers in China say they are paying a heavy price as authorities rush to deliver on ambitious pledges to ramp up national green energy output.
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.
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.”

Cambodia’s dwindling fish stocks have put the spotlight once again on the stressed waterways of the Mekong river. Fish stocks are at low levels and experts blame factors such as Chinese hydropower for projects upstream for the dramatic drop at the lowest level.
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.
