  • Investigation Prompts Schools to Report $6.5 Billion in Undisclosed Foreign Gifts and Contracts

    The Epoch Times ^ | OCTOBER 20, 2020 | IVAN PENTCHOUKOV
    Universities in the United States reported $6.5 billion in previously undisclosed gifts and contracts from foreign sources as a result of an investigation by the Department of Education. Federal law requires universities to disclose substantial foreign gifts and contracts to the Department of Education (DOE) twice a year. Many have for years failed to do so, while others have underreported. After the department opened an investigation into the matter in 2019, 60 schools that had never complied with the law disclosed $350 million in previously unreported foreign funds, according to a report (pdf) released by the DOE on Oct. 20....

    Well, I’m sure you all know the October surprise by now. Hunter Biden is back. We have emails. And it looks like former Vice President Joe Biden has been exposed as a total liar regarding his son’s shady business dealings. The New York Post had the scoop. They’ve been churning out stories about Hunter’s business arrangements, which was never asked of Joe Biden during his town hall event with ABC News. Talk about safe territory.  The elder Biden has said that he didn’t know anything about his son’s business ventures. Well, that’s just not true Joe. Hunter was on the...

The 31-year-old was seconded from GCHQ to work on top-secret systems to defend British banks and transport infrastructure from cyber attack and to eavesdrop on terrorist communications.

    A New York City police officer and U.S. Army Reserve member was arrested on federal charges for acting as a special agent for the Chinese regime. Baimadajie Angwang, a 33-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen born in China’s Tibet region, fed intelligence about other ethnic Tibetans in New York to the Chinese consulate in the city, according to a criminal complaint. Angwang works in Queens and lives in Nassau County, Long Island, prosecutors said. He was arrested on Sept. 19, and is due to make his initial appearance at the district court for the Eastern District of New York at 3:30 p.m....

    United Launch Alliance early Thursday delayed the launch of a triple-core Delta 4-Heavy rocket — the largest launcher in the company’s fleet — until Saturday to allow engineers more time to resolve an issue with a ground pneumatics control system. The launch company planned to fire the Delta 4-Heavy rocket into space at 2:12 a.m. EDT (0612 GMT) Thursday from Cape Canaveral with a classified payload for the National Reconnaissance Office, the U.S. government’s spy satellite agency. But the ULA launch team halted the countdown to give technicians time to troubleshoot an issue with a nose cone heater. Ground crews...

    John Brennan’s long-time advisor Nick Shapiro put out a statement yesterday at the conclusion of Brennan’s eight-hour interview with John Durham and his investigators. It might all be true. All I have are opinions on the text and circumstances. But I also know that the CIA is an institution designed to engage in manipulation using lies and deception — in a good way. It’s how they accomplish their mission in defense of the country. John Brennan is an embodiment of the CIA — it’s all he’s ever known. Its ethos oozes from his pores. John Brennan wanted to send a...

    Nizar Zakka, a U.S. permanent resident and Lebanese national who spent years in Iranian captivity, called out presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden: "You left us behind in Iran," he said in a tweet. Zakka was held prisoner by the Islamic Republic "from 2015 to 2019 on charges he spied for the United States," according to the Washington Free Beacon. Biden in a July 12 tweet spoke out about Egypt's release of medical student Mohamed Amashah after he was held for more than one year: "Mohamed Amashah is finally home after 486 days in Egyptian prison for holding a protest...

    We all knew Obama winning the election would be bad. But did any of you really believe it could be this bad? Every day is just another astounding move of stupidity, treason, or both. Witness: If you were president of the United States, would you hire an alleged former spy for Fidel Castro to be ambassador to El Salvador, a country teetering on the brink of hard-core socialism? President Obama just did. On Dec. 9, Obama nominated Mari Del Carmen Aponte to be ambassador to El Salvador, despite the fact that in the late 1990s, the FBI discovered that she...

    If you were president of the United States, would you hire an alleged former spy for Fidel Castro to be ambassador to El Salvador, a country teetering on the brink of hard-core socialism? President Obama just did. On Dec. 9, Obama nominated Mari Del Carmen Aponte to be ambassador to El Salvador, despite the fact that in the late 1990s, the FBI discovered that she was working with Cuban intelligence officers. According to Insight Magazine, "When the FBI eventually questioned her about her involvement with Cuban intelligence, she reportedly refused to cooperate." Why would Aponte escape the Obama administration's scrutiny?...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Russia used Republican political operative Paul Manafort, the WikiLeaks website and others to try to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election to help now-U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign, a Senate intelligence panel report said on Tuesday. WikiLeaks played a key role in Russia’s effort to assist Republican Trump against Democrat Hillary Clinton and likely knew it was helping Russian intelligence, said the report, which is likely to be the most definitive public account of the 2016 election controversy. The report found President Vladimir Putin personally directed the Russian efforts to hack computer networks and accounts affiliated with...

    The method prosecutors said they used to get Alexander Yuk Ching Ma to reveal the nature of his espionage was worthy of a spy novel itself. A 15-year veteran of the CIA was charged Monday with selling U.S. secrets to China then unwittingly admitting his spying to the FBI. The method prosecutors said they used to get him to reveal the nature of his espionage was worthy of a spy novel itself. Court documents said 67-year-old Alexander Yuk Ching Ma of Honolulu was charged with violating U.S. espionage laws. Prosecutors said he joined the CIA in 1967 then served as...

    eBay Founder Pierre Omidyar is starting a news outlet called First Look Media. In the site's animated video, he describes it as "a new kind of marriage between a technology company and a new kind of newsroom," and that one of its goals will be to "make it easier for journalists to deliver the transformative stories we all need." Omidyar is known as a philanthropist, and has put his money where his mouth is (in this case, he is reportedly investing $250 million in the First Look venture).

    Return to The New Australian The Left's war against America By James Henry Few people appreciate the power of ideas. When they experience the social and economic effects of intellectually inspired long-term trends, many tend to ascribe the process to a conspiracy of some kind. (If only that were so). More than 160 years ago J. S. Mill wrote of how the ideas of a few writers can eventually influence the thinking of a nation's intellectuals. Keynes made a similar point when he wrote: "Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic...

    FORMER US President Bill Clinton has sensationally been accused of an affair with Ghislaine Maxwell – the British socialite alleged to have procured girls for Jeffrey Epstein. Ex Commander-in-Chief Clinton – who infamously had a sexual liaison with White House intern Monica Lewinsky during his presidency – is claimed to have romped with Maxwell during overseas trips on Epstein’s jet. The former president also repeatedly visited Maxwell – a close friend of Prince Andrew - at her Manhattan townhouse, according to a new book. Clinton has denied the Maxwell claims. But a source is quoted in ‘A Convenient Death: The...

    “White” does not mean white. “White” in radical parlance means anyone of any race, creed, nationality, color, sex, or sexual preference who embraces capitalism, free markets, limited government, and American traditional culture and values.”This philosophical concept belongs to Noel Ignatiev, a white American of Russian origin, who is the ideological founding father of numerous radical black movements in America. The author of this concept was even lucky enough to see his best students -- Black Lives Matter (BLM) -- in action. Research into the work of this former Harvard professor finally answered the question of why BLM proponents are so...
