World China is waging war on the US. Biden whispers in response
Uyghur American: I was born in a Chinese reeducation camp. I will always fight China's lies.
Uyghur children shaped by our mothers’ sufferings, our fathers’ toil, and our homelands’ tribulations, will not rest until China's lies are exposed.She could not have known I would obtain a law degree at American University, serve as vice chair for the U.S. Commission of International Religious Freedom, or receive the inaugural Notre Dame Prize for Religious Liberty. But while she may not have seen my future, I do know she had a dream for my life. She dreamt I would live in freedom and that her children’s children would grow up without the heavy burden of traumatic life experiences like torture, silencing or imprisonment.
The Chinese Communist Party is aggressively engaging America in a cold war. These acts of war destabilize our nation, weaken our economy, and kill our citizens. Instead of countering these attacks and holding China accountable, President Joe Biden whispers diplomacy and blames past administrations.
On Monday, the Biden administration linked sweeping cyberattacks against Microsoft and other American companies to the Chinese government. Intellectual property theft and damages from cyberwarfare, the lion’s share of which is sponsored by the Chinese government, cost American businesses billions of dollars every year.
Syria Accuses Israel of New Attack After China Promises Support
"China strongly supports Syria in safeguarding state sovereignty, territorial integrity and national dignity," Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said.Following reports Monday of explosions in the country's northwest, the Syrian Defense Ministry released a statement in which an official source said that "the Israeli enemy carried out an aerial aggression towards southeast Aleppo, targeting some sites in the Al-Safira area.
In response to China’s sponsorship of this egregious attack on the United States, Biden didn’t believe any punitive action was necessary. Instead, he issued a statement calling on China to uphold international law. China’s flagrant illegal interference in the U.S. deserves more than a strongly worded statement.
Further, while the Chinese government monitors every movement and statement made by its citizens, it feigns ignorance over the production and distribution of fentanyl, causing a crisis across the U.S. and claiming tens of thousands of lives each year. In the Chinese police state, no activity goes unmonitored — just look to the Chinese government’s authoritarian censorship of the internet. By knowingly permitting illicit fentanyl to ship to the United States, the Chinese government has killed untold thousands of Americans.
Biden and White House sharpen strategy to confront epic challenges
Joe Biden's presidency is only six months old, but the mood inside the White House can often feel like a race against time. © Susan Walsh/AP President Joe Biden speaks during a meeting with his Cabinet in the Cabinet Room at the White House in Washington, Tuesday, July 20, 2021. "The clock is running. We all know that," a senior adviser to Biden said, speaking on condition of anonymity. "The President certainly knows that.
Additionally, China exploited the COVID-19 pandemic, knowingly allowing it to spread and then capitalizing on the crisis to expand its authoritarian agenda. When COVID-19 was first beginning to spread, the Chinese government pressured foreign governments to continue free and open international travel. By actively spreading false information about the virus, the Chinese government paved the way for more than 600,000 deaths in the U.S. and more than 4 million deaths worldwide.
Even as Chinarules on tens of millions of its citizens, it to curtail COVID-19’s transmission. On Jan. 23, 2020, hundreds of flights in and out of Wuhan were . A week later, former President Donald Trump made the prescient decision to between the U.S. and China. In response, the Chinese government as fearmongering and racist. For months following China’s domestic shutdowns, CCP officials to continue allowing free and open international travel with China.
China Backs Cuba in Saying US Should Apply Sanctions To Itself
"The U.S. should first and foremost examine its own human rights issues, instead of wielding the big stick of sanctions, grossly interfering in other's internal affairs and creating division or confrontation," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said.Speaking Friday at a press conference in Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian asserted that his country "firmly supports the efforts of the Cuban government and people to maintain social stability" as President Joe Biden doubles down to pressure Cuba in the wake of historic protests in the island nation.
China was positioned better than any country to know the imminent threat COVID-19 posed to the world. While the CCP responded to quell the virus’ spread domestically, it disseminated propaganda to the rest of the world, downplaying its hazards. Through its duplicity, the Chinese government weaponized the coronavirus to assault the United States, undermine global stability, and manipulate the resulting chaos to achieve its own authoritarian ends.
It is clear to any rational observer of the facts that the Chinese government’s policies, practices, and intentions are nefarious.
Biden does not believe China’s attacks on our nation merit a punitive response. These acts of aggression must be called what they are, and the U.S. must hold the Chinese government accountable. Unless American leadership abandons its toothless foreign policy, the Chinese Communist Party is going to continue doing whatever it wants, knowing there will be no retaliation.

It added, "We must make the American people more and more aware of how stupid they are to forcibly shape China into a strategic opponent." That was just the start. Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng also issued Sherman with two lists.

Beijing Games: Sports coverage fine, other things maybe not .
TOKYO (AP) — The IOC says the Olympics are only about the sports; no politics allowed. This will be the mantra, as it always is, when the Beijing Winter Games open in six months. Covering ski races or figure-skating finals should be painless; just stay in the sports bubble and out of trouble. But reporters from other countries who puncture the PR skin to explore other aspects of life in China — as they have in Japan during the Tokyo Olympics — could draw more than criticism.
