  • In Stinging Rebuke, China Tells U.S. Diplomat That Its Rise Can’t Be Stopped

    A senior Chinese diplomat on Monday bluntly warned the visiting American deputy secretary of state, Wendy R. Sherman, that the Biden administration’s strategy of pursuing both confrontation and cooperation with Beijing was sure to fail. China’s assistant foreign minister, Xie Feng, told Ms. Sherman that the United States’ “competitive, collaborative and adversarial rhetoric” was a “thinly veiled attempt to contain and suppress China,” according to a summary of Mr. Xie’s comments that the Chinese foreign ministry sent to reporters. Ms. Sherman’s meetings offered the latest gauge of the Biden administration’s strategy of stepping up pressure against the Chinese government on...
  • America Has Lost The Trade War With China, And The Real Pain Has Yet To Begin

    Corporate America sacrificed national interests in service of greed, and so did the U.S. government. As we all know, the source of Corporate America’s unprecedented explosion in profits in the 21st century is the offshoring of manufacturing to China. If you doubt this, please study the chart below of corporate profits. Apologists claim many excuses in an attempt to evade the central role of offshoring production to China, but they all ring hollow: no, it wasn’t increasing productivity or automation or Federal Reserve magic, it was shipping production to China and other low-labor-cost nations. Whether we like to admit it...

    The demonstrations were mainly triggered by people's discontent over Cuba's economic hardships and shortages of basic supplies. These are mainly a result of the US' decades-long sanctions against Cuba. Despite dialogue during the Obama era, the Trump administration tightened sanctions on Cuba, further crippling their economy. Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said on Sunday that the protests were a form of "systemic provocation" by dissidents doing the bidding of the US. He said Washington in recent months had sought to destabilize and weaken the island's economy as part of a policy designed to "provoke a massive social implosion," according to New...
  • Xi Jinping Claims China is a ‘Moderately-Prosperous Society,’ Contradicting CCP Premier Li Keqiang

    On July 1, Xi Jinping, head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), declared that China had achieved a moderately prosperous society. At the same time, the Central Financial and Economic Affairs Commission also stated that China’s per capita GDP had exceeded $10,000 in 2019. However, these statements were very different from those of the CCP Premier Li Keqiang last year.On July 1, Xi declared that China had achieved a “moderately prosperous society.” What is a “moderately prosperous society?” A moderately prosperous society is the “ideal state of societal living conditions,” according to China’s Baidu Encyclopedia. “It is not only about...

    Alina Chan isn't saying the coronavirus definitely leaked from a lab in China. What she is saying is what more scientists have grown comfortable discussing publicly: There's no clear evidence either way. "I know a lot of people want to have a smoking gun," said Chan, a postdoctoral associate at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University who specializes in genetic engineering and has been vocal about the need to investigate the possibility of a lab leak. "It's more like breadcrumbs everywhere, and they're not always leading in one direction. It's like the whole floor is covered in breadcrumbs."...

    American Thinker ^ | 04/18/2021 | Lynn Corum
    Burning questions remain regarding the COVID epidemic. Where did it come from? How did it spread? Who is responsible? The key question is whether we are dealing with the release, accidental or not, of a lab-created pathogen. The Russian and Chinese press continue to pump out articles holding America guilty, but they serve as a smokescreen for ill-run Chinese labs.In March 2020, the Russian monthly Zvezda ([Red] Star) blamed George Soros for financing "the laboratory in Wuhan, China, that developed and released the coronavirus in late 2019," blaming America by association. The mainstream American media are quick to dismiss that...

    Last Monday, in a single six-hour period, NATO launched 10 air intercepts to shadow six separate groups of Russian bombers and fighters over the Arctic, North Atlantic, North Sea, Black Sea and Baltic Sea. Last week also brought reports that Moscow is increasing its troop presence in Crimea and along its borders with Ukraine. Joe Biden responded. In his first conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Biden assured him of our "unwavering support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of Russia's ongoing aggression in the Donbass and Crimea." Though Ukraine is not a member of NATO, and...

    When catching spies, it is tempting to cast a broad net despite risk of making false accusations. Recently, the Justice Department has done just that. In an effort to crack down on what it depicts as an intellectual espionage campaign by China, it has revved up its prosecutions for scientific espionage and intellectual property theft against Asian-American citizens—from the notable case of Wen Ho Lee at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1999, to Gang Chen at MIT this January. It’s a familiar cycle, yet somehow shocking each time: immigrant and naturalized scientists are accused of disloyalty. Many are preemptively...

    Last fall, the U.S. Air Force simulated a conflict set more than a decade in the future that began with a Chinese biological-weapon attack that swept through U.S. bases and warships in the Indo-Pacific region. Then a major Chinese military exercise was used as cover for the deployment of a massive invasion force. The simulation culminated with Chinese missile strikes raining down on U.S. bases and warships in the region, and a lightning air and amphibious assault on the island of Taiwan.

    Beijing has successfully powered up its “artificial sun” nuclear fusion reactor for the first time, China’s People’s Daily reported on Friday. It’s designed to be a clean energy source, similar to the real Sun. Made to replicate the natural reactions that occur in the sun using hydrogen and deuterium gases as fuels, the HL-2M Tokamak reactor is China's largest and most advanced nuclear fusion experimental research device. It is located in southwestern Sichuan province and was completed late last year. The reactor is often called an "artificial sun" due to the enormous heat and power it produces. Men work inside...

    LinkThe 2016 Presidential election results (remember them?) were a vindication of four people: First, the incomparable Pat Buchanan, who ran for the presidency three times on an America First platform, championing the ideas that ultimately propelled the Trump campaign. Buchanan was a prophet—a man of foresight, courage, and vision who loved his people and delivered a warning that went unheeded. Trump had the benefit of running in light of the damage and wreckage that Buchanan predicted. Second, Samuel Francis, editor, columnist and essayist who long predicted the rise of “Middle American Radicals”, a phalanx of dispossessed white working-class voters yearning...

Credit: Huang Diying ========================================================================== The arthropods have been among the most successful animals on Earth since the Cambrian Period, about 520 million years ago. They are the most familiar and ubiquitous, and constitute nearly 80 percent of all animal species today, far more than any other animals. But how did arthropods evolve and what did their ancestors look like? These have been a major conundrum in animal evolution puzzling generations of scientists for more than a century. Now researchers from the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (NIGPAS) have discovered...

    Armed Trump supporters surrounded a Biden campaign bus and rammed a Biden campaign staffer’s car in Texas on Friday. The confrontation occurred while the bus was driving down a local highway. A sizable group of vehicles that were displaying Trump campaign material had been lined up along the edge of the road and waiting for the Biden bus to pass by, and when the bus arrived, the drivers sprung into action and positioned their vehicles around the moving bus, seemingly trying to box it in and run it off the road. According to Dr. Eric Cervini, who was with the...

    China's economy is leading the charge for a global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, overshadowing the United States which continues to reel from a rising number of COVID-19 cases. The world's second-largest economy grew 4.9 percent between July and September compared to the same quarter last year, according to government data. But economists had expected growth of 5.2 percent. During the first quarter of the year, China's economy shrank by 6.8 percent as the pandemic closed factories and manufacturing plants. It was China's first economic contraction since the recording of quarterly GDP data began in 1992. Yi Gang, China's central...

    At least 16 people were killed and 90 others wounded after a powerful explosion rocked outside a provincial police office in Firoz Koah, capital of Afghanistan's western Ghor province on Sunday, a local official confirmed. "The final number of casualties would be shared with media later in the day. The number of casualties may change as the rescue of victims from under debris is continuing," Abdul Latif Rahimi from the provincial health directorate told Xinhua. Many wounded remained in critical condition, he said. The blast occurred roughly at 11:15 a.m. (local time) when an explosive-laden minibus was detonated along a...

    A new Pentagon paper paints a grim picture of the emerging great power rivalry in Asia and suggests that a toe-to-toe balancing with China is now out of the question. The document titled “Military and Security developments in the People’s Republic of China” charts where China has already far surpassed the United States.For example, by the end of 2019, China possessed the world’s largest standing ground force and leading maritime militia. China has now the world’s largest navy, already with around a 50-ship advantage over America, a gap that is steadily increasing in a competition that is at a...

    In its first public estimate of China's nuclear capacity, the Pentagon said Tuesday that within a decade Beijing will double the number of warheads in its stockpile, which is currently "in the low 200s". But even with the increase, that number is "far smaller" than that of the United States and Russia, respectively 3,800 and 4,300, and should serve to discourage Washington from dragging Beijing into the trilateral arms control negotiations, several US experts have said. "China's nuclear forces will significantly evolve over the next decade as it modernizes, diversifies, and increases the number of its land-, sea-, and air-based...
