Ambassador Sam Brownback: Communist China 'Biggest Enabler of Human Rights Abuses Around the World' (24 min 55 sec):


Published on Aug 29, 2020 by American Thought Leaders - The Epoch Times​
The Chinese Communist Party touts itself as a global leader. And it is a leader. It’s leading the world in persecution, says Sam Brownback, the Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom.​
From forced organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners to forced sterilization of Uyghurs, the Chinese regime, in Ambassador Brownback’s words, has waged “War with Faith.” And it’s exporting its repressive model abroad, to the detriment of freedoms across the globe. But authoritarianism ultimately can’t defeat faith, Brownback says, in China or anywhere.​
This is American Thought Leaders, and I’m Jan Jekielek.​

Alibaba Founder Jack Ma Has Been Missing For 2 Months
BY TYLER DURDEN
MONDAY, JAN 04, 2021 - 6:16

About 14 months ago during an interview with Real Vision, investor Kyle Bass - who has been one of the most prominent American critics of the Chinese Communist Party, while also anticipating the political troubles in Hong Kong that inspired the protest movement of 2019 - predicted that retiring Alibaba Chairman Jack Ma would be "disappeared" by Beijing within a year. The gist of Bass's argument was that Ma had outlived his usefulness, and that Beijing would never tolerate a billionaire with so much power and influence, both at home, and in the West.



As it turns out, Bass was off by about 1 month. Because following some rumblings published by the FT on New Year's Eve, it appears the Western press has just woken up to the fact that nobody has seen Jack Ma in two months. Late last night in New York, Yahoo Finance reported that Jack Ma is officially 'missing'.

The FT reported a few days ago that Ma had been abruptly replaced by an Alibaba executive for the taping of the finale of his show "Africa's Business Heroes".

Mr Ma was replaced as a judge in the final of Africa’s Business Heroes, a television contest for budding entrepreneurs, his photograph was removed from the judging webpage, and he was conspicuously left out of a promotional video.​

Now, Yahoo Finance is saying that nobody has seen Ma in public for at least two months.

Unfortunately for Ma, this isn't exactly a surprise. When the executive offered a light-hearted criticism of certain aspects of China's regulatory framework, claiming it stifled innovation, it seemed like the CCP used his comments as a pretext to chasten him. Immediately, the IPO for the spin off of Ant Financial, a sister company to Alibaba, which marked the start of an "anti-monopoly" push against Chinese tech giants that has hammered their shares (in mainland markets, and abroad) and inspired serious concerns about a state takeover of the heretofore independent (though certainly subservient) tech sector.

Following the spoiled IPO, the CCP has ordered Ant Financial to step back from some of its businesses as part of some kind of "rectification" plan to prevent the company from growing any larger. Many fear similar measures might be imposed on China's other tech giants like Tencent and JD.com. Of course, the whole episode mirrors an anti-monopoly push against American tech giants being launched via a series of civil lawsuits in American courts filed by the DoJ and the AGs of many states.

It has been reported that Ma is a member of the Communist Party. That, of course, wouldn't make him immune to prosecution. In fact, it could be used as an excuse to heighten whatever punishment he might receive.

What's more, all this is happening as the EU is pursuing a historic trade deal that would further integrate its economy with that of China.

Right now, only one thing looks certain: Wherever Jack Ma, it's probably not somewhere that anybody - especially an internationally respected billionaire - would want to be.

Exclusive: Sec Mike Pompeo: China’s Communist Party Is ‘Inside the Gates’ | American Thought Leaders (20 min 36 sec):


Published on Jan 4, 2021 by American Thought Leaders - The Epoch Times​
When it came to the Soviet Union, President Ronald Reagan said America should “trust, but verify.” Now, as the Chinese Communist Party has broken promise after promise, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calls for a policy of “distrust but verify.”​
In this episode, we sit down with Sec. Pompeo to discuss why it is important to distinguish between the Chinese Communist Party and the Chinese nation, why religious freedom is at the core of U.S. foreign policy, and what it will take to protect the American republic from the Chinese communist regime.​
This is American Thought Leaders, and I’m Jan Jekielek.​

China's Religious Suppression Could Spread if Not Challenged—Interview with William L. Saunders (16 min 10 sec):


Published on Jan 4, 2021 by Crossroads with JOSHUA PHILIPP​
Many religious groups are targeted for persecution in China, including Christians, Catholics, Falun Gong practitioners, Muslim Uyghurs, and Tibetan Buddhists, and if these persecutions are not challenged, the regime's programs for religious suppression risk spreading around the world. To learn more about this we've invited to speak with us William L. Saunders, religious liberty and human rights scholar at The Catholic University of America, and chair of the Religious Liberties Practice Group of the Federalist Society.​

Theft of religious freedom and murder for organ harvesting are the biggest reasons why dislike the CCP

U.S. Capitol: The Hidden Forces?; The Cost America Pays for Communist China Ties | Wide Angle (14 min 06 sec):


Published on Jan 10, 2021 by Wide Angle with Brendon Fallon​
President Trump has condemned Twitter’s move to permanently suspend his account, saying that the big tech giant does not stand for free speech. The President has also declined to attend Biden’s inauguration on January 20th. This follows in the wake of the violence that erupted at the U.S. Capitol during Wednesday’s joint session of congress to certify electoral college votes. Mainstream media and the tech giants have held President Trump and his supporters more or less solely responsible for the disruption and damage to Congress and the loss of life that occurred. Tonight, however, we look at compelling evidence that radical left factions played a prominent and destructive role in the “storming” of the Capitol.​
According to Greek mythology, Zeus gave Pandora a sealed box filled with scourges, disasters, and plagues, for the man who married her. ‘Pandora’s box’ is a metaphor for a gift that brings misfortune. Similarly the Western World’s ‘marriage’ of sorts to the Chinese Communist Party, since China’s induction into the world economic forum has brought with it bountiful financial benefits to America and other Western countries; so much so that America’s political elite and Wall Street have been prepared to turn a blind eye to the scourges of political, media, educational, infiltration, etc wrought by the CCP upon their own country.​

83 Global Brands Tied to Forced Labor in China—Benedict Rogers | American Thought Leaders (56 min 43 sec):


Published on Jan 13, 2021 by American Thought Leaders - The Epoch Times​
In China, we are seeing forced televised confessions, a mass surveillance state, the killing of Falun Gong practitioners for their organs, and what many are calling a genocide of the Uyghur people. 83 global brands, including major U.S. companies, are tied to Uyghur forced labor in China.​
Over in Hong Kong, 53 pro-democracy activists, lawmakers, and lawyers were arrested on Jan. 6 under the draconian national security law.​
Despite all this, the EU recently announced a major trade deal with China.​
Today, we sit down with human rights activist and writer Benedict Rogers, founder of Hong Kong Watch and deputy chair of the UK Conservative Party’s Human Rights Commission, to discuss the commission’s new report: “The Darkness Deepens.”​

And yet a lot of people here ridicule this pov and make a joke of it!
It's precicely that kind of blind arrogance that gets people/countries taken over/killed. They have become what they hate.
