What China Has Done to Starve U.S. Hospitals of Key Medical Equipment is Unforgivable

China lied and people died. In December, China ordered its scientists to
destroy samples that showed they had a pneumonia-like virus on their hands.
They strong-armed doctors from trying to spread the word, kept medical staff
in the dark, and prevented new cases of what we know was the Wuhan
Coronavirus, or COVID-19, from being reported. And now doctors who tried to
raise awareness have vanished. Vloggers documenting the situation on the
ground have also disappeared. China allowed Chinese New Year to be
celebrated which led to scores of people being exposed. In all, some 5
million people had left Wuhan by the time the Chinese government got its act
together. It was too late. And now, their incompetence caused this pandemic.


The world economy has ground to a halt. And while we're dealing with this
nonsense, China has also reportedly tried to corner the market on personal
protection equipment which is essential for health care workers around the
world. The Trump administration is fully aware of the situation and is
mulling legal action. The New York Post quoted one senior lawyer said
China's actions concerning this alleged hoarding is akin to a first-degree
murder charge (via NY Post):

What will the US defense industry do when China cuts off rare earth supplies?

he latest comments follow a meeting of China's state economic planner, the
National Development and Reform Commission, or NDRC, which announced the
study and formulation of new export controls to go into effect "as soon as
possible." These controls differ from previous embargo and boycott threats
by singling out U.S. defense manufacturers, along with contractors that
refuse to do business with Huawei.

For years, supply chain experts warned about the potential for China to cut
off access to the critical materials found in almost every major weapon
system, from fifth-generation fighters to precision-guided munitions. Even a
modest decrease in the availability of rare earth materials results in
increasing prices for the elements, but severe and sustained shortages could
threaten the ability of American defense contractors to produce systems
vital to our national security.

Hidden Dragons in America, Pompeo Warns

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo looked into the faces of 40 governors and warned them that China had infiltrated their states, he wasn't kidding. They're hiding in the shadows of our schools, our lobbying meetings, even our business dinners. And no one, he said evenly, knows it's happening.
"These aren't hypotheticals," Secretary Pompeo insisted. "We've allowed this to continue without a deep awareness from the American people." And what is "this," exactly? According to top State Department officials, we're talking about a massive network of Chinese communists fanned out across the country with one goal: penetrate U.S. security, education, and financial systems -- then, create chaos. "It's happening in your state," Sec. Pompeo insisted, "with consequences for our foreign policy, for the citizens who reside in your states, and indeed for each of you... The Chinese Government has been methodical in the way it's analyzed our system... It's assessed our vulnerabilities, and it's decided to exploit our freedoms to gain advantage over us at the federal level, the state level, and the local level."

Central Asians cry out over China's secret detention camps


The "study camp" is believed to be one of the numerous extra-judicial detention centres set up in Xinjiang, holding as many as one million Uighurs and other Muslim minorities, according to estimates cited by a UN panel.

Doolotkhan's disappearance shows how China's vast dragnet has extended and now hits people with links to Kyrgyzstan, after similar reports emerged from distressed families in neighbouring Kazakhstan.

Last month Alymkulova and a dozen others formed a lobby group, called the Committee to Protect the Kyrgyz People in China.

The group has called for the Kyrgyz government, which depends heavily on Chinese economic assistance, to press Beijing about the camps in Xinjiang.

Chinese officials have described the camps as "vocational education centres" for people who appear to be drawn towards Islamist extremism and separatism.

But human rights activists say members of China's Muslim minorities are being held involuntarily for transgressions such as wearing long beards and face veils.

Rights groups say the region has become a police state.


US sportswear traced to factory in China's internment camps


The rulers of China see humans as little more than chattle. And certain groups in the U.S. are still upset over stuff that happened more than 150 years ago. Wake up and realize how good we have it here! The "global" economy isn't all it's cracked up to be.

"Behind locked gates, men and women are sewing sportswear that can end up on U.S. college campuses and sports teams.

This is one of a growing number of internment camps in the Xinjiang region, where by some estimates 1 million Muslims are detained, forced to give up their language and their religion and subject to political indoctrination. Now, the Chinese government is also forcing some detainees to work in manufacturing and food industries. Some of them are within the internment camps; others are privately owned, state-subsidized factories where detainees are sent once they are released.

The Associated Press has tracked recent, ongoing shipments from one such factory inside an internment camp to Badger Sportswear, a leading supplier in Statesville, North Carolina. The shipments show how difficult it is to stop products made with forced labor from getting into the global supply chain, even though such imports are illegal in the U.S."

Christians 'Standing in the Way' of China's Xi Jinping's Totalitarian Rule



"December 18, 1978, was an important day to be remembered in the history of the Chinese nation," Xi added, saying that it marked the "start of a great journey of reform, opening-up and socialist modernization."

But unlike Deng Xiaoping, who helped launch the country's reforms 40 years ago and wanted to reduce the power and influence of the Communist Party over civil society, China's current leader believes in the absolute power of the Party and wants his government to exert control over every aspect of Chinese life.

Since coming to power in 2012, Xi has severely cracked down on human rights, religious freedom and freedom of expression. Christians are experiencing some of the worst persecution in decades.

"Under President Xi, the government has further tightened control over Christianity in its broad efforts to "Sinicize" religion or "adopt Chinese characteristics," Human Rights Watch said in a statement.  "In other words, to ensure that religious groups support the government and the Communist Party."

Christians are not alone. Muslims, Buddhists and other faith groups are also coming under intense scrutiny.

Organs Seized From Uyghurs


"A "high" number of Uyghurs, including youngsters seized by security forces following ethnic unrest in China's Xinjiang region, may have become victims of forced organ harvesting, according to an independent researcher.

Ethan Gutmann said that the forced disappearance of hundreds of Uyghur men and boys following the 2009 ethnic riots in Xinjiang's capital Urumqi "should be of great concern to the world no matter what else may be occurring."

"But I suspect it goes further than that," Gutmann, an expert at the Washington-based Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told RFA's Uyghur Service when asked about the possibility that many ordinary Uyghurs, apart from political prisoners, would have been victims of forced organ harvesting."
