Boston Celtics player Enes Kanter on Nov. 16 slammed Beijing for its industry-scale killing of prisoners of conscience for their organs, doubling down on his social media crusade against the regime over its wide-ranging human rights abuses.

India’s border clash with China is unmasking a greater geopolitical situation. China’s growing aggression in Asia is expanding. But India is not putting up with it. From resistance in the Eastern Ladakh region to a closer tie with the United States.

Rivals China and India have both sold or gifted COVID-19 shots to many countries. India produces more than 60 percent of all vaccines sold in the world.
In recent years, Europe has been showing signs of frustration of the CCP’s aggressive geopolitical posture. Some European countries have begun to refuse Chinese state enterprises from participating in their economies as the United States is deepening its cooperation with European allies to counter the CCP.
China launched a month of military exercises in the South China Sea on Monday and accused foreign countries of heightening tensions by increasing their military presence in those contested waters.

These exercises come in the wake of numerous foreign military maneuvers in contested areas of the South China Sea, which appear to have drawn Beijing’s ire.
While the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) already leverages health data to power its Orwellian surveillance state at home, the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is looking to America’s ethnically-diverse health data to feed its algorithms to bolster its economic and geopolitical clout abroad.
“The PRC has for years been able to gain access to US healthcare data, including genomic data, through a variety of channels, both legal and illegal” — National Counterintelligence and Security Center
There are many ways in which the Chinese Communist Party “acquires” health data on the American people, including straight-up theft and the more dubious backdoor approach of infiltrating American universities, research labs, businesses, and hospitals through strategic partnerships and negotiations.
A leaked document from China indicates that Chinese top leaders issued instructions within internal circles on the handling of COVID-19 in mid-January. This was several days before the authorities announced the epidemic to the public. It serves as another piece in the growing pile of evidence that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) covered up the virus outbreak at the early stage.
Why did China and Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping make Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba, disappear, and block a $300 billion IPO of Xi Jinping?
It turns out Jack Ma had a dirty secret—Ant Financial had major investors tied to a political faction within the Communist Party of China tied to former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin.
