excerpt:

"... So you're refusing to answer the question. That does not give this committee any confidence that TikTok is doing anything other than participating in Chinese propaganda and espionage on American soil. ... [witness interrupts saying that is not accurate] ... If it were not accurate you would answer the questions and you have dodged the questions more than any witness I have seen in my nine years serving in the Senate. That is saying something 'cause witnesses often try to dodge questions but you answer non sequiturs and refuse to answer very simple questions. That, in my experience, when a witness does that it is because they are hiding something." -- Ted Cruz to TikTok executive (Mr. Beckerman) during a Senate Commerce Committee hearing on Tuesday, Oct 23, 2021

Where is Peng Shuai​

ANONYMOUS COLUMNIST 2:34 PM, JAN 02, 2022

Editor’s Note: The News has granted the author of this piece anonymity due to a risk to their family’s safety. The author is a University student with family in China who might be harmed by the piece being published with the author’s name. As a policy, the News does not accept anonymous submissions. However, we believed this piece could not be published without guaranteeing the author’s anonymity.

A month after Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai publicly accused a former Communist Party official of sexual assault, I still don’t know if she is safe and free. But I know how the oppressive regime will bury her: Peng Shuai won’t be made a martyr. She won’t be charged. She will disappear from the public, except for a few official publicity stunts. Finally, after months and years, she will be forgotten. Or so planned the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

As a concerned Yale student, who has to remain anonymous for fear of putting those I love in danger, I’m writing to you so that she won’t be forgotten. We won’t forget her. And I want to tell you what I think #WhereIsPengShuai is really about. If we trivialize Peng Shuai’s allegations as just another social media hashtag, what she did will be for nothing.

Peng Shuai is being punished particularly because she is a woman in a patriarchal society, but she is being punished primarily and predominantly because she is speaking directly against the Chinese regime — a party-state conglomerate that addresses criticism with terror. The regime has gone rogue; it no longer bothers with keeping up the façade of protecting human rights. The CCP now thinks that not only law, but also fact, answer to it, rather than vice versa.

To the fairness of the person accused, I don’t know the merit behind Peng Shuai’s allegations. That’s a matter of fact and law. But when the CCP is willing to bend both, she has neither. And without strong and constant international pressure, we will never hear what she has to say again, because there is only one language that the CCP understands: the language of power.

The Yale endowment needs to divest from China. The track record of the CCP has made it more than clear that every dollar of investment in China is unethical, until the CCP is willing to positively respond to, and act on, allegations by Peng Shuai and many others. Despite having a significant Chinese portfolio, which includes top-earning tech companies like Tencent and JD.com, the Yale Investments Office currently has no publicly available ethical policy specific to China or a review of its ethical implications.

To claim that the CCP is different from the Chinese people, as many multinational companies have done to justify their shady business, is not a valid defense. In China, every private company with three or more Party members is required to have a Party branch or committee that answers ultimately to the CCP, who has vowed to crack down on the slightest deviation from Party agenda. Shouldn’t we be legitimately concerned that Yale’s Chinese portfolio might create a conflict of interest between placating parties close to the CCP and using Yale’s influence to advocate for Chinese people’s human rights? Or what has prevented Yale, while profiting from China, from just releasing a statement acknowledging that the human rights abuse allegations even exist?

The Yale endowment needs to do some soul-searching. We are demanding answers to these questions, because we have a right to know whether our University that claims to uphold “light and truth” is playing an unethical role in perpetuating some of the worst human rights abuses in modern history – and whether our institutional integrity is intact when doing the right thing is hard.

Is that Pompeo on the left? If so I don't recognize him as the guy I last saw some months ago.
Yes. I had the same reaction earlier this month when I saw another picture of him. I was afraid he was ill or something. He's not ill. I was happy to find this article:

Mike Pompeo tells The Post how he lost 90 pounds in six months

Many of the mandarin speakers I know are from the regions where their word for Uh or um in conversation sounds exactly like a rapidly spoken, "niggah". In a short combo u might here it a dozen times or more.
How many people when they are yelling at a ball player pause or say uh or um in the middle of their yell?
Could happen I suppose.
Which is more likely?

I was just adding it as a side note not speculating about that incident.

Watch the full episode https://ept.ms/DNAHarvestedYT

Recently, a CCP-linked company sought ownership of a fertility clinic, located within driving distance of six American military bases—a place many U.S. soldiers and spouses would likely attend for fertility, paternity testing, etc. I asked Graceffo what the CCP would do with the DNA of American soldiers.

Hunter Biden’s Deal With CCP Backed Energy Firm; Push to Expunge Trump Impeachment

Mar 31
2022
In a bid to ease the burden of rising gas prices, President Joe Biden announced the biggest ever release of U.S. #EmergencyOilReserves. What will the long-term impacts be and will it lower gas costs in the near future?

The top U.S. trade negotiator is saying to turn the page on the old playbook, as she signals a sterner approach to trade disputes with China.

The number of illegal aliens starting to pour into the United States could reach 200,000 as early as May. And just how important is it for the United States to keep a competitive space program? Texas Congressman Brian Babin weighs in.

As the House geared up to vote on the “Affordable Insulin Now Act,” Democrats came together to stress the urgency of reducing the cost of insulin.

Bank statements show President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, got paid by the Chinese Communist Party.

The Federal Election Commission has fined #HillaryClinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee over Russia's dossier against Donald Trump.

Member of Congress and Oklahoma candidate for U.S. Senate Markwayne Mullin is calling for former President Trump's first impeachment to be expunged. The Congressman joins us to discuss.

American elites selling out to China: Report | China in Focus
Mar 31
2022

"The CCP [Chinese Communist Party] government has a strategy when confronting the United States," said Peter Schweizer, author of "Red-Handed" and president of the Government Accountability Institute.

The United States loses $200 billion to $600 billion each year to China through intellectual property theft.

But how is it happening? With a little help from friends on the inside.

"Made in China" labels flood the market, from everyday items to toys, to industrial tools. And now, even some policies here in America are being shaped by the communist regime.

In this special report, we peel back the layers on how the complicit actions of American elites have helped China gain an edge.

Joining us to shed light on this topic are #PeterSchweizer; Ross Kennedy, founder of Fortis Analysis; and #KevinRoberts, president of the Heritage Foundation.

I still think the low fine is a legal trap.

By setting the fine so low HRC, who is hurting for money, will pay the fine and admit guilt in the process instead of paying a $h1t ton of money to her lawyers and probably lose anyway. Not paying the fine only buys her time, if it does that.

HRC paying the fine and admitting guilt only helps Trump's RICO lawsuit.
