  • Communist China’s Silent War Against America. For decades, CCP has been using 'unrestricted warfare' to weaken US from within

    Stealthily, surreptitiously, and with sweeping precision, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began a decades-long war against America for world domination by utilizing a military strategy known as “unrestricted warfare” that continues today. Unbeknownst to most of the population, the CCP has infiltrated almost every major avenue of life in the United States - leaving virtually no industry untouched. While this threat has largely existed undetected, the effects it’s had on the nation, as well as its geopolitical consequences, are far-reaching. Skirting the traditional, direct military confrontation offensives that have become somewhat outdated in modern times, this unconventional strategy has become...

    <p>TikTok has come under fire for being owned by the Chinese Communist Party. In fact, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just last week talked about banning TikTok and other CCP-owned social media platforms out of national security concerns. Because of that, the social media company is beefing up its lobbying efforts in the United States.</p>

    Another U.S. professor "with strong ties to China" has been arrested and charged with allegedly lying about his ties to the communist country. Song Guo Zheng, who the Justice Department described as a "rheumatology professor and researcher," allegedly used more than $4.1 million in federal research funding to help advance China's capabilities with regard to rheumatology and immunology. The Justice Department alleges he then failed to disclose to the U.S. government that he held employment in China while conducting U.S. taxpayer-funded research as a researcher at multiple universities in the U.S., including Ohio State University.

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is opening a new China-related counterintelligence case about once every 10 hours as it pushes back against Beijing’s expansive campaign to steal American intellectual property (IP) and influence policymakers, FBI director Christopher Wray said in a speech on July 7. Wray warned that Beijing’s counterintelligence and economic espionage operations are the “greatest long-term threat” to the United States’ economic and national security. Its stealing of U.S. technology and trade secrets is on a scale “so massive that it represents one of the largest transfers of wealth in human history,” he said in a speech...

    Huawei, the embattled Chinese network equipment provider, has a new accusation to address. In the West, the company has been well known for its 5G network equipment and as the second largest handset maker in the world. It is also a leader in AI technology. However, Huawei has a much darker side to it as an instrument of policy for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). You may recall that the company leadership has been accused of violating U.S. sanctions against Iran, leading to the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada in December of 2018, where she remains in...

Now, users will be prompted with a notification when an application gains access...

    SHENZHEN, China — Meet the man dubbed China's Elon Musk, Ruopeng Liu. Like Musk, he's working on sending people into space, and has already sent them flying. He's the man behind jet-powered surfboards, and is a multi-billionaire at just 35 years old. "We call ourselves the future studio," said Liu during an NBC News visit to his company's headquarters here. "We design the future." But is he guilty of stealing the intellectual property of a famous American scientist? Dr. David Smith of Duke University is one of the world's experts on something called "metamaterials."

    President Trump on Monday suggested without evidence that his predecessor, former President Obama, committed treason in connection with the investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia.“Treason. Treason. It’s treason,” Trump said in an interview with CBN News. The president did not elaborate on the specific charge but repeated his assertion that the previous administration “spied” on his campaign in the course of the Russia probe.“They’d been spying on my campaign,” Trump told CBN News’s David Brody. “Turned out I was right. Let’s see what happens to them now.”Trump signaled he was looking forward to the results of U.S. Attorney...

    In August 2018 the National Institutes of Health (NIH) launched an investigation that is shaking up the U.S. biomedical community. A new round of terminations has resulted in 54 scientists losing their jobs with the taxpayer-funded institute. The investigation is on-going. The scientists, all grant recipients, failed to disclose financial ties to a foreign government – mostly China.189 researchers were investigated and 93% were found to be tied to China. So, 54 researchers were terminated or resigned for violating NIH rules against simultaneously receiving funds from the U.S. government and foreign entities. In other words, the scientists aren’t allowed...

    The list of sophisticated eavesdropping techniques has grown steadily over years: wiretaps, hacked phones, bugs in the wall—even bouncing lasers off of a building's glass to pick up conversations inside. Now add another tool for audio spies: Any light bulb in a room that might be visible from a window. Researchers from Israeli's Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the Weizmann Institute of Science today revealed a new technique for long-distance eavesdropping they call "lamphone." They say it allows anyone with a laptop and less than a thousand dollars of equipment—just a telescope and a $400 electro-optical sensor—to listen in...

    MADISON — How low can Tony go? We just learned. Gov. Tony Evers’ team secretly recorded a meeting he had with Republican legislative leadership. Empower Wisconsin has learned the meeting took place on May 14, the day after the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down the Evers administration’s statewide lockdown, declaring the public health edict in response to the pandemic “invalid.” GOP leadership was livid Wednesday upon the revelations, referring to the secret recordings as “Nixonesque.” “In 26 years in the Legislature, this is one of the most brazen examples of unethical, unprofessional conduct I have ever seen,” said Senate Majority...

    This afternoon, it was reported that former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will be the first witness to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week. I’ve never understood why Rosenstein, who has played such a pivotal role in the investigation of President Trump, has received so little scrutiny. Although he projects the persona of a boy scout, he is one of the vipers slithering through the muck of the Washington swamp. In March 2017, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the disastrous decision to recuse himself from the Trump/Russia collusion case because he had met twice during the 2016 presidential...

    The lawsuit seeks at least $5 billion, accusing the Alphabet Inc unit of surreptitiously collecting information about what people view online and where they browse, despite their using what Google calls Incognito mode. According to the complaint filed in the federal court in San Jose, California, Google gathers data through Google Analytics, Google Ad Manager and other applications and website plug-ins, including smartphone apps, regardless of whether users click on Google-supported ads. This helps Google learn about users’ friends, hobbies, favorite foods, shopping habits, and even the “most intimate and potentially embarrassing things” they search for online, the complaint said....

    On May 1, 2020, Democratic congressman Bobby Rush introduced bill H.R. 6666, otherwise known as the “Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone Act” (“TRACE Act”). Ostensibly, the TRACE Act will limit the spread of COVID-19 by creating “mobile health units” that will “conduct diagnostic testing… trace and monitor the contacts of infected individuals” and then “support the quarantine of such contacts.” The TRACE Act allocates $100 billion in federal funds to facilitate this project. Rush says "increased testing and contact tracing is the only way we will get back normal and safely reopen our economy." Basically, Rush’s position is that America...

    The comments – unearthed from a 2011 Sichuan University speech – demonstrate either a fundamental misunderstanding of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), or outright collusion with it. The former veep stated at the time: “In order to cement this robust partnership, we have to go beyond close ties between Washington and Beijing, which we’re working on every day, go beyond it to include all levels of government, go beyond it to include classrooms and laboratories, athletic fields and boardrooms.”
