    Authorities destroy river dikes amid floods; Missing husband found dead: flooded Chinese subway



    Chinese authorities send excavators to destroy a river bank in Henan province. But when locals tried to stop them, they got doused by pepper spray and had their cars smashed. Civilian rescue teams are taking matters into their own hands. They say authorities failed to provide enough disaster aid. Residents lay flowers at the entrance of a flooded subway station in China’s Henan province. Authorities set up barricades there—attracting online criticism. Beijing cracks down on private companies, sending shockwaves through stock markets, and sparking fear among American traders. And Hong Kong moves one step closer to Communist China. The first person charged under the city’s national security law has been found guilty of terrorism and inciting secession. That’s over actions related to Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement.

      15-year-old survivor: horrors of a flooded subway; Red cross accused of embezzling donations



      A 15-year-old survivor is opening up after escaping a flooded subway in China. She says dozens of people died in front of her while trapped inside—and even more remains were seen lying on the subway platform afterward. Flooded subway cars in Zhengzhou city are taken away, with black cloth covering the windows. Netizens are questioning what the authorities are hiding. New evidence has emerged surrounding China’s flood disasters. A video online shows Chinese authorities clashing with locals, who say the troops came to destroy local river embankments. China’s Red Cross faces a serious accusation. A businessman says the organization embezzled thousands in donation funding. American investors are rushing to divest from Chinese companies in the health sector, as fears rise that Beijing’s crackdown on private companies will hit the medical industry next.

        Man attacked for filming subway mourners; US bill bans maps showing Taiwan as part of China



        A man in China’s Zhengzhou city was brutally attacked by what appear to be plainclothes police officers as the man captures a video of mourners gathering to pay respects after the city’s subway #FloodDisaster. Heavy rain and bad management aren’t the only reasons behind the subway tunnel flood. An expert warned about another risk years ago, but the concern wasn’t taken seriously. Authorities in one of China’s flood-hit cities turned the area’s electricity back on without warning. As a result, volunteers suffer severe electrical shocks while rescuing people from the floods. A Taliban delegation is now visiting China and meeting with top officials there. The United States hardens its stance toward Beijing. The House passes a motion involving maps that show Taiwan as part of China.

          Subway station flooded in southern Chinese city; Cyberattacks From China | China in Focus



          A Chinese subway station floods after heavy rain. It’s the second one to end up submerged recently—following the disaster in Zhengzhou city. In Tokyo, Chinese athletes are winning lots of medals. But instead of celebrating, they’re apologizing—for not taking home gold. Some say the "gold medals only" mentality is pushing Chinese athletes over the edge. And, people in Beijing are panic buying en masse. That's amid fears of an upcoming pandemic outbreak. And Beijing isn't the only city affected. ⏩Special report on #EpochTV: For years, cyberattacks have been a huge headache for the U.S. and its allies. Now for the first time, they're formally calling out one of the biggest sources in charge behind the scenes. “The U.S. is joining allies around the world to call out the Chinese government for a series of cyber intrusions," CBS This Morning reported. Randy Grossman, Acting U.S. Attorney, Southern District of California said "This prosecution is unique. This case is about a cyber hacking and economic espionage campaign led by the government of China." In a special report, we look at just who are these Chinese hackers... How the regime uses the attacks to achieve their strategic goals... “Unsurprisingly, the intrusions targeted industries outlined in the made in China 2025 plan- China's ten-year plan for targeting strategic advanced technology manufacturing industries for development," Grossman added. How Beijing is building a massive database —full of details about average Americans. “We're talking about health histories, their criminal histories… Social Security numbers, biometric fingerprints,” PBS News Hour reported. And what tools the U.S. has to stop it.

            Inflation Rising as Government Raises Debt by ‘Enormous Amount’—Interview With Barbara Kolm



            With multi-trillion dollars in spending at the federal level for COVID-19 bailout packages, and with additional spending planned on policies including the infrastructure bill, there’s now talk of potential inflation. And as China pushes its new digital currency, and is trying to reform the global financial model, the stability of the US led financial system is being called into question. To learn more about this, and where things may be heading, we sat down for an interview with Dr. Barbara Kolm, founder and director of the Austrian Economics Center, and president of the Friedrich A. v. Hayek Institute in Vienna.

              Reggie Littlejohn was a litigation attorney in the 90s and got to learn about the CCP’s brutal forced abortion methods when she helped a Chinese client to apply for refugee.

In this amazing interview, Reggie shared about her work to expose the cruelty behind CCP’s One-Child policy, her efforts to save the blind Chinese activist Chen Guang-cheng, her transforming experience working for Mother Teresa and some of the most rewarding moments during her years helping free the Chinese people.

                Wall Street Lost Protection, Biden Isn’t Coming to Its Rescue, Investment in China Is Further Banned



                More Chinese companies have been removed from global indices recently. Is that trend irreversible? Will DIDI set off a US-China capital market decoupling, and does the Biden administration have the power and will to rein in Wall Street? Simone Gao had these discussions with Roger Robinson, Chairman of the Prague Security Studies Institute and former Chairman of the Congressional US-China Economic and Security Review Commission. He earlier served as Senior Director for International Economic Affairs at the National Security Council under President Reagan.

                  President Biden expanded the sanction list on China, but is the scope still too narrow? Will Biden adopt a human rights abusers’ list that US investors can’t invest in? These are covered in Part two of Simone Gao discussion with Roger Robinson, these questions with Roger Robinson, Chairman of the Prague Security Studies Institute and former Chairman of the Congressional US-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

                    ‘What China does is your responsibility’: Dr. Corr on US investing in China | China in Focus





                    In this special episode, we sat down with two guests. Dr. Anders Corr, publisher of the Journal of Political Risk, delves into two of his exclusive articles. One reveals just how much money U.S. investors have poured into China since 1992—a whopping $2.3 trillion. He sheds light on the moral and ethical concerns around that. Corr said, “The more that this data is coming out, actually, the more Wall Street is questioning, I believe, some of their investments, and whether these investments can keep going without crashing. Just this last week, the Shanghai stock index has dropped over 6 percent, which is a really big drop. I think that the investors are getting very jittery about China at this point. They’re a bit worried because of that drop—this week’s drop—and you actually do see in the news quite a bit. Now, some concerns … because the government can take your investments in two seconds. And we’ve seen that, that the Chinese Communist Party has no qualms about taking DiDi apart, taking Jack Ma apart, and financial Alibaba. These companies are small companies to that. They’re little ants to be squished for the Chinese Communist Party, they [the CCP] really don’t care. If you’re a billionaire, or a multimillionaire, they will take your money if they can, or if they deem that it’s good for the Party.”

                      Naomi Wolf: ‘Your Body is Where Totalitarianism Takes Place’ | CLIP



                      ‘Distressed liberal’ Naomi Wolf says that since the 2020 election, a “fascistic ideological rigidity” has quickly arisen within the Democratic Party, taking the form of a “cult around medical coercion.” She warns about the danger of the state invading the body, saying “your body is where totalitarianism takes place.”

                        Is The World Waking Up To The Dangers Of Dealing With China? Feat. Gordon Chang | Wide Angle



                        The world knows the China regime intentionally pushed coronavirus around the world from Wuhan. The world suspects the China regime accidentally (or otherwise) leaked the virus from its Wuhan lab. The world knows about the China regime’s human rights abuse of various groups, its crackdown on Hong Kong democracy, and its bullying of Taiwan. If these factors alone aren’t enough to majorly deter foreign countries and corporations from dealing with China, what is? It could be the Chinese Communist Party’s stifling of China’s own businesses, like the ride-share business, Didi, which finally gets foreign investors to ‘wake up.’ Especially if these foreign financial interests, like Wall Street, lose more big money by ‘betting on China.’

                          How communism killed 80 million in China: Chinese Communist Party at 100 years | CLIP



                          This month marks the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party’s founding. But as accusations of human rights abuses grow… one question often crops up: Why the Chinese people don’t just revolt against the Chinese Communist Party? One important factor is fear, imprinted onto Chinese peoples’ hearts through decades of bloodshed caused by the CCP. In this special report, we look at the grueling facts about that killing—and even human cannibalism. And why experts warn the world should watch out for the spread of communism. Or else risk the same tragedies that happened in mainland China, striking in their own backyards.

                            China’s Fentanyl War on the U.S.; Signs of China Regime’s Collapse. Feat. Gordon Chang | Wide Angle



                            U.S-foreign relations analyst, Gordon Chang left China, after a 5 year stay in 2001, feeling that the country was headed for disaster. His prediction is now playing out in many ways, particularly in China’s crumbling foreign relations. But, this isn’t surprising, considering The Chinese Communist Party’s offensives against foreign nations, particularly the U.S., are enough to raise the ire of even its once staunchest allies. “What the Party wants to do is weaken the United States and they want to kill Americans,” Gordon says. “We should look at those 53,000 or so Americans who died last year from fentanyl as murdered by the Chinese Communist Party.” Border security intel suggests that all of the fentanyl that’s entering the U.S. is coming from China. Meanwhile, erratic economic practices are giving the global community another reason to keep its distance from the China regime.

                              China’s largest desert flooded by heavy rain; Delta strain spreads, Chinese cities shut down



                              Heavy rains and melting snow soak China’s largest desert. The flooding drenched over 100 square miles. A video showing positive relations between Chinese citizens and the military is raising eyebrows. One item seen in the clip seems to reveal a different narrative than the video supports. A Canadian citizen has been detained in China on suspicion of rape. He’s been identified as a Chinese-born pop singer. Surveys reveal that the world view on Beijing seems to be changing—and not in favor of the communist regime. Now, millions have signed a petition aimed at ending China’s Communist Party.
