A group tied to Beijing has organized trips to China for more than 120 journalists from almost 50 U.S. media outlets since 2009, as part of a broad campaign to deepen the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) influence in the United States. Called the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF), the group is a Hong Kong-based nonprofit headed by billionaire Tung Chee-hwa, a Chinese regime official. Tung was formerly the Chief Executive (top government leader) of Hong Kong and is currently a vice-chairman of the CCP’s political advisory body, the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. CUSEF is registered as a “foreign principal” under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

Comments:

Michael Pillsbury, in his excellent and chilling book on China’s grand plan The Hundred-Year Marathon, talks about just this sort of thing. A way (calculated by the highest levels at CCP) to get pro-China, we are really good guys, propaganda into the United States media. China thinks of pro-China soft touches as being Red Team (the panda huggers as they are called here), while the hardliners who are more realistic about China are the Blue Team. They cozy up to the Red Team, whether they be in the media, in the business world, or in Congress and the government. Think Swalwell. One of the most illuminating (and frightening) books I’ve ever read.

This is an excellent article. A small sample: As vice chair of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, Tung presides over a key unit in the regime’s United Front network. The advisory body self-identifies as a “patriotic united front” organization for “promoting socialist democracy.” United Front work, described by Party leaders as a “magic weapon,” involves the efforts of thousands of groups inside and outside of China that carry out political influence operations, suppress dissident movements, gather intelligence, and facilitate the transfer of technology to China. China’s goal is to be #1 in the world. According to Pillsbury, they have been indoctrinating their young in the schools to view the United States as the great satan. They have placed Confucious Institutes on university campuses across our country and around the world. They contribute great amounts of money to the universities that agree to house them The purpose? Pro-China propaganda, pushing the view of China as a peaceful country that just wants to get along… Meanwhile, they have other plans. As Pillsbury notes, their key word is Deception.

Borrowing an anecdote from Churchill, To all you "reporters" and politicians, and CEOs and industry titans: we know what you all are, the CCP is just haggling over your price. whorish sell-outs, traitors, faithless.

All Chinese citizens should be barred from entering the USA. Mitch is married to the daughter of a bigwig in the ChiCom business world, making many millions from business with the ChiCom Party. This means that the father is a ChiCom 'employee', and Mitch is likely another ChiCom employee. If you think this is too fantastic, do some research on Al Gore, Sr. He was controlled by the Kremlin via the KGB money man, Armand Hammer. All signs point to Al, Jr. doing the same thing.

Gab CEO completely backed up President Trump’s Twitter account before it was deleted and recreated him on Gab. What’s even more impressive is he did this while traffic was up 700% and under attack from leftists. Gab is currently having servers upgraded to handle the large influx in traffic but we’re told it should stabilize soon. President Trump’s new account: https://gab.com/realdonaldtrump (Snip) Andrew Torba, the founder of Gab, said Monday that the free speech platform saw 600,000 new users in one day as President Donald Trump has been censored from most mainstream tech platforms, as previously reported by 100% FED UP.

Social media giants Facebook and Twitter have collectively seen $51.2 billion in combined market value wiped out over the last two trading sessions since they banned President Donald Trump from their platforms following the U.S. Capitol breach. Large tech firms and a number of Democratic political figures have claimed Trump incited violence at the U.S. Capitol last week. (Snip) Trump took to Twitter following the outbreak of violence to call on protesters to “go home in peace.” He denounced the violence as a “heinous attack” that “defiled the seat of American democracy” on Jan. 7. It is unclear who instigated the breach of the building.

On Jan. 6, supporters of President Donald Trump gathered in the nation’s capital for a demonstration, called the “Save America March.” The plan was to hold a rally in The President’s Park just south of the White House and then march to the Capitol building to demand that Congress and Vice President Mike Pence reject electoral votes for former Vice President Joe Biden from states where election results were marred by irregularities, allegations of fraud, and unconstitutional voting rule changes. By the end of the day, the Capitol went through several rounds of lockdown after a sizable group of protesters broke inside.

(Video) As the threat of violence ramps up in America again, hundreds of exhausted National Guard troops have been forced to sleep on the cold marble floor of the Capitol building. Incredible images show politicians practically stepping over the troops clinging to their rifles in the hallways of the heart of the US government. Sleeping in almost any spot they can find, some are forced to use stairs as a makeshift pillow to get some rest as they ready for a potential insurgence in the run-up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next Wednesday.

On Sunday, House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.) said that, while House Democrats would take up articles of impeachment this week against President Trump, the House might delay sending to the Senate any articles passed by the House until after President-elect Biden’s first 100 days in office.(Snip) Once Trump’s term ends on Jan. 20, Congress loses its constitutional authority to continue impeachment proceedings against him — even if the House has already approved articles of impeachment. Therefore, if the House of Representatives were to impeach the president before he leaves office, the Senate could not thereafter convict the former president and disqualify him under the Constitution from future public

Constantine Scurtis, whose sister, Cynthia Scurtis, was married to A-Rod from 2002 to 2008, has claimed the former slugger pushed him out of a moneymaking venture, according to court papers filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.

The increasingly fascistic American left is setting a trap for the rest of their fellow citizens—often termed “deplorables,” but more appropriately dubbed “normals” by Kurt Schlichter—by warning that we intend violence all over the country during Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Rep. Jason Crow, Colorado Democrat, said Wednesday that Republican members of Congress are scared they’ll be killed if they vote to impeach President Trump. He said the GOP is “paralyzed with fear.” “I had a lot of conversations with my Republican colleagues last night,” Mr. Crow said on MSNBC. “A couple of them broke down in tears talking to me and saying that they are afraid for their lives if they vote for this impeachment.” “My response was, you know not to be unsympathetic but welcome to the club,” he said. “That’s leadership.

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reworn the outfit she appeared in during President Trump’s first impeachment in 2019 for the second impeachment vote against the president. On Wednesday, Ms Pelosi appeared at the House impeachment vote wearing a black dress with three-quarter sleeves and a blue and black floral mask. She paired the outfit with a gold necklace. As confirmed by her office in a statement to People, Ms Pelosi first wore the suit dress and necklace on 18 December 2019, when the House passed two articles of impeachment against the president for abuse of power and obstruction of justice.

President Trump potentially faces a torrent of criminal charges when he leaves office, including charges linked to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, making prosecutors worry that he is a flight risk. Mr. Trump’s real estate empire extends to multiple luxury properties in countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the United States. And Mr. Trump himself publicly mused in October that he’d leave the country if he lost to Democrat Joseph R. Biden. Douglas McNabb, a private attorney with expertise in international extradition defense, said that if criminal charges are brought, Mr. Trump fits the bill for becoming a fugitive from justice.
