The Supreme Court is now hearing oral testimony that could determine the fate of #Obamacare.

2020 Election Hangs on Arizona and Legal Challenges
11:18

Meanwhile, the final call on the 2020 presidential #elections is still up in the air. The outcome now hangs on the developments in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Arizona, which Biden would need to reach the 270 Electoral College votes, and which may still be overturned by lawsuits filed by the Trump administration around changes to voting laws ahead of the elections, on incidents of observers being denied access to key locations where votes are still being counted, and of other issues. We'll be taking an in-depth look at this.

Meanwhile, the Trump administration reiterated its position on China just ahead of the elections. On Nov. 2 the National Security Council issued a statement saying that Trump’s policy on China is to put America first, and that it recognizes the Chinese Communist Party as a threat to America’s economic and political way of life. It stated, “We are no longer turning a blind eye to the People’s Republic of China’s conduct nor are we hiding our criticism of its Communist Party behind closed doors.”

And, the Trump administration went ahead of and cleared the sale of sophisticated drones to Taiwan. The clearance by the State Department was outlined in a formal notification to Congress, in a move that the People's Republic of China has been deeply unhappy about. Congress will have 30 days to object to the sale, but this isn’t likely to happen, given that it has had bipartisan support.

Agostino Von Hassell: China Is Using Corruption to Conquer Oil Market

The Chinese government recently announced it would cut all greenhouse gasses by 2060, yet at the same time has been working to gain control over an emerging oil market which could give it deeper influence over global energy. According to Agostino Von Hassell, head of Repton Matrix Intelligence Network, China has been leveraging corruption and underhanded deals to gain deeper influence in Latin America, and part of this has been a push to control a new oil market through Guyana.

In this episode of Crossroads we'll be speaking with Agostino about his research, China's activities in Guyana and the Caribbean, and the broader picture of geopolitics and conquering through other means.

US Arrests Five In China's 'Operation Fox Hunt' Plot; Seamus Bruner Explains Hunter Biden Emails
26:42

Among the swirl of information being released on Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, has been direct emails provided by a former business partner of Hunter, which point to various pay-to-play deals, among other issues. Those emails, and additional information, were provided to Seamus Bruner, author of "Compromised: How Money & Politics Drive FBI Corruption," and of the new book, "Fallout: Nuclear Bribes, Russian Spies, & D.C. Lies." To learn more about this we’ve invited Seamus Bruner to speak with us.

Meanwhile, the Chinese government had agents who were sent to capture Chinese targets on U.S. soil. The program, called Operation Fox Hunt, included coercing targets to return to China, threatening their families, and pressuring them to commit suicide. And on October 28, the U.S. Department of Justice announced it charged eight people in the plot, and made five arrests.

And, Newsweek had an exclusive story that identified 600 U.S. groups linked to the Chinese government, which are working to push the regime’s political and economic interests. These include businesses, universities, think tanks, social and cultural groups, Chinese organizations, Chinese language media and chat groups, and others. It notes that the identified groups are "all in regular touch with and guided by" China's leadership.

China's 'Magic Weapon' Exposed; US Should Proceed With Caution on Faction Leaks
30:20

There’s two different realities being shown when it comes to Antifa and its actions to physically attack people they disagree with politically. The Trump administration is looking to designate them as terrorists. And many democrats have argued that Antifa is an idea, not an organization. To give give us some deeper insights into Antifa and how it looks on the ground, we’ve invited National Police Association spokesperson and retired Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith to speak with us about it.

Meanwhile, a key faction within the Chinese Communist Party has allegedly provided Trump and the DOJ with hard drives containing evidence against Joe Biden ties to Xi Jinping, but the faction ties should also raise alarms for US authorities on what the actual motives are. I'll be explaning this.

And, during comments to the London-based Policy Exchange, Deputy National Security Advisor Matt Pottinger, is warning of the China's United Front system. He noted that the massive system has no equivalent in western democratic societies, and that the close to 90 million Party members are required to support the activities of the branch the regime calls its “magic weapon.”

With the elections just around the corner, and with China coming into focus, we wanted take a closer look at the defense policies of both Trump and Biden, and at the potential risks the U.S. military faces on the horizon. To learn more about this we invited to speak with us James Carafano, director of the Douglas and Sarah Allison Center for Foreign Policy Studies and Vice President of the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for International Studies at The Heritage Foundation.

Meanwhile, an alleged audio recording of Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, has what sounds like Hunter discussing his ties to the "Spy Chief of China." The recording was posted to Twitter on October 27 by Donald Trump Jr. We'll be looking into this and related information.

And, Amy Coney Barrett was sworn into the Supreme Court on October 26, about an hour after she was confirmed for the position in a 52 to 48 vote by the Senate. During the ceremony, Barrett suggested during the ceremony that she would remain independent of partisan politics, and said as part of the separation of duties that make the judiciary distinct from other government branches, “A judge declares independence, not only from Congress and the president, but also from the private beliefs that might otherwise move her.”

China Mass Tests for Virus; Exiled Chinese Billionaire Alleges Biden Compromised By China's BGY Plan

The Democrats are relying heavily on race politics for the November 3 elections coming up. But how much sway does this really have over voters? To get more insights into race politics and their impact we invited to speak with us Bishop Aubrey Shines, founder and pastor of G2G Ministries in Tampa Bay, Florida, and founder of the Conservative Clergy of Color.

Meanwhile, Chinese authorities recently held a mass test of every person in Qingdao, which was around 11 million people, and afterward told the world it found zero new cases. Chinese state media is reporting that the CCP is “leaving the world in awe” with its rapid testing, but even local residents don’t seem to believe Chinese authorities. We'll be looking into this case and others in China.

And, a wave of compromising photographs and videos of Hunter Biden, son of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, is being published by G News, which is a media outlet run by Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, who is currently living in the United States after having escaped China.

Also, a former business associate of Hunter Biden has allegedly been moved from his prison cell to protect him, and has provided authorities with an email account that is adding to the growing scandal around Biden.

And as the discussion grows in the United States around political censorship by social media companies and big tech, the broader picture is surveillance capitalism and potential violations of U.S. law by the tech industry.

Taiwan Warned of Possible Invasion by China; Hunter Biden Laptop Corroborated by Secret Service Logs
29:45

In the United States, radical groups are tearing down and defacing statues and monuments, journalists and academics are rewriting the history of the nation, and protesters and politicians are calling to de-fund police. The forces at work look to radically remake the United States, yet according to Curtis Bowers, these movements should have been expected. A decade ago he wrote and directed the film, "Agenda: Grinding America Down," which warned about communist groups working on agendas that align closely with what the United States now faces. We recently had the pleasure of speaking with Curtis Bowers about his films and his warnings to America.

Meanwhile, the laptop of Hunter Biden, son of Democratic Presidential nominees Joe Biden, has now been verified by several sources, including by congressional staffers and by cross-referenced Secret Service logs. We'll be taking an in-depth look at this.

And, White House national security adviser Robert O'Brien is saying Taiwan should prepare against a possible invasion from China. According to Voice of America, O’Brien said at an Aspen Institute event that he believes “Taiwan needs to start looking at some asymmetric and anti-access area denial strategies and so on and really fortify itself in a manner that would deter the Chinese from any sort of amphibious invasion or even a gray zone operation against them.”

China Threatens to Arrest Americans; Government Report Exposes Student Spies
22:37

The history of a country is what establishes how its people view its stories, their heritage, and the broader culture that forms a nation. The Pilgrims who landed on Plymouth Rock came to this country with a very different intention than how America is often portrayed—that being religious liberty. Faith and belief have been the real driving force behind the American character. This history of the United States is shown in a new documentary, “America, America, God Shed His Grace on Thee,” which stars actor Nick Searcy. And to learn more about this, we’ve invited him to speak with us.

Meanwhile, China is threatening to arrest US nationals in China, as a form of retaliation to the Justice Department’s prosecution of scholars affiliated with the Chinese military. This is according to an exclusive story by The Wall Street Journal, which cited unnamed sources allegedly familiar with the matter. It reports that Chinese officials have repeatedly issued warnings to representatives of the U.S. government through multiple channels, including through the US Embassy in Beijing.

And new US government report details how China uses overseas students and scholars to feed its government programs and military development. The findings are detailed in an October 7 report from the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission, which says the leaders of China have “long sought to harness the intellect of overseas Chinese students and scholars for the state’s development and strategic priorities,” and notes over the last 30 years “their efforts have become more systematic and sophisticated.”

RFA reports that Xi Jinping announced plans on October 14 to put Shenzhen at the heart of a new integrated economic zone that will include Hong Kong and the island of Macau.

Meanwhile, China has released a video of a new swarming drone-bomb system, which appears to be a knock-off of a similar US weapon system. The state-owned China Electronics Technology Group Corporation posted a video on YouTube that shows ground-based systems launching tubes which unfold into gliding bombs that can be remotely controlled. It also showed one of the drone-bombs being launched from a helicopter. The weapon appears to be a copy of the US-901 drone swarm systems unveiled by the US Office of Naval Research, right down to the wing designs on the drones.

And, after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called out China’s attempt to subvert the American education system, China responded with terse words. In a joint letter with Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, Pompeo pointed out a “real and growing threat” to American educational institutions, which the “the malign influence of the authoritarian government of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) on our nation’s campuses.” Zhao Lijian, spokesperson of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, responded by calling Pompeo’s words “slander”

[Exclusive] Leaked Documents Show How China Targets US Embassies
26:43

History is being rewritten in the United States, and the story being taught to children in today’s schools is one that frames America as built on racism and slavery. But is this really the case? Or is this an alteration of history? To learn more about this, we’ve invited to speak with us Alex Newman, an award-winning journalist, and co-author of the book "Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians are Using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children."

Meanwhile, Hunter Biden, the son of democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, allegedly went after a deal with China’s largest private energy company, and allegedly said in an email, it would be “interesting for me and my family.” The leaked email was published exclusively by the New York Post, and are claimed to be from a computer that was dropped off at a repair shop and never retrieved.

And, the Chinese regime launched a program in 2018 to target US and western embassies in China, which could give some insights on the closure of the Chinese consulate in Houston, and the CCP’s closure of the US consulate in Chengdu, China. This is from leaked internal documents obtained by The Epoch Times.

Deleted Video Sparks Rumors on Xi's Health; Xi to China's Marines: 'Prepare for War'
28:33

President Donald Trump recently banned critical race theory trainings for US government employees and for federal contractors. Supporters for the program say they teach racial tolerance, but Trump said they are indoctrination programs that spread divisive and harmful ideologies on gender and race. To learn more about these programs we’ve invited to speak with us Jarret Stepman, a Daily Signal columnist and the author of "The War on History: The Conspiracy to Rewrite America's Past.”

Meanwhile, Chinese leader Xi Jinping sent out an alert on October 13, telling the country’s Marines to “prepare for war.” According to Taiwan News, which cited a Chinese military publication, Xi was conducting an inspection of the People’s Liberation Army Navy-Marine Corps base in Chaozhou city, on China’s southeast coast. Xi told the troops they “must focus your minds and energy on preparing for war and maintain a high state of alert.

And, there are now rumors circulating over the state of Xi Jinping’s health. During a speech on October 14, marking the 40th anniversary of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone, Xi coughed several times, and also paused many times. After the video was published in a live broadcast, the state-run CCTV news station deleted the video.

China Gives Experimental Vaccines To Students Heading Overseas; US-China Diplomacy Race Heats Up
28:52

Investigative journalist organization Project Veritas recently released a series of videos showing what is allegedly incidents of ballot harvesting in Minneapolis. After these were released, the New York Times claimed the reporting was “deceptive”. Following this, Project Veritas announced that they will be suing the New York Times unless it retracts the article. To learn more about this case and the original investigative report, we’ve invited to speak with us, James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas.

Meanwhile, with the vaccines for COVID-19, US companies have been putting their vaccine trials on hold due to negative reactions from patients. And China is doing the opposite, by giving experimental vaccines to hundreds of thousands of its citizens, and has been criticized for skipping key stages of trials. We'll be taking an in-depth look at this.

And, the Chinese government is trying to push back against US diplomacy in the Asia region. The US has recently made moves in the area, including forming the Mekong-US Partnership, the Quad Alliance, and with a diplomatic trip by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. China responded by warning Asian countries to be vigilant of the United States pushing into the region.

Kim Jong-Un Sheds Tears Over His Failures; China Criticizes K-Pop Group BTS For Thanking Veterans
27:33

History is being rewritten on Christopher Columbus, and people are now being educated on a very different narrative than what used to be taught in schools. To learn more about Columbus, and how history is being rewritten, we've invited to speak with us Dr. Robert Royal, director of the Faith and Reason Institute in Washington, and author of "Columbus and the Crisis of the West."

Meanwhile, North Korea held a large-scale celebration and military parade marking the 75th anniversary of the founding of its ruling communist regime. The Party leader Kim Jong-Un made an appearance, after having disappeared from the public scene amid rumors of serious health problems. Among the weapons on display during the parade was what appeared to be a new intercontinental ballistic missile, which may be the largest road-mobile ICBM in the world.

And around the time of the parades in North Korea, Chinese state media also criticized BTS, after the popular K-Pop group in South Korea gave a speech thanking veterans of the Korean War. According to China, it supposedly reflects a “one-sided attitude.” This could be interpreted as a subtle signal of Chinese authorities aligning their messaging with North Korea against the South.

Xi Jinping Thought Classes Now Required; Norovirus Outbreak Hits China
26:02

The Vatican is in the process of renewing its deal with the Chinese Communist Party that recognizes CCP-appointed bishops as legitimate. To learn more about this we’ve invited to speak with us James Bascom, Assistant director of the Washington Bureau of the Catholic organization, the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property.

Meanwhile, there was a large norovirus outbreak at a Chinese university in Shanxi, where around 100 male college students suddenly fell ill with a foodborne illness. There was very little information on what was taking place until the evening of October 8, when the Wucheng campus of Shanxi University of Finance and Economics announced that all students on the sixth floor of a dormitory building have been placed in isolation in their dorms.

And China leader Xi Jinping has joined Karl Marx and Mao Zedong as a required course at the top colleges in China. Nikkei reports that starting this Fall, 37 universities in China will launch introductory courses on Xi Jinping Thought. This will be done through the School of Marxism, which is an institution at the 37 universities, and instructs students on his theories.

China Censored Mike Pence In VP Debates; Chuck DeVore Exposes China's Political Subversion
32:02

The Chinese government has programs focused on lobbying and subverting the U.S. political system, the main one being the United Front Work Department which typically operates from its consulates. To learn more about this we’ve invited to speak with us Chuck DeVore, who witnessed these tactics first-hand while serving in the California State Assembly until he termed out in 2010. He’s currently the vice president of national initiatives at the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Meanwhile, vice President Mike Pence and Democrat Vice Presidential Nominee Kamala Harris held their first debate for the 2020 elections on October 7, and during a broadcast of the debate, China appeared to have censored Pence’s comments on China. Videos are now circulating of the cut broadcast, which displayed a “No Signal” error message while Pence was giving his comments, and cut back when Harris began speaking. Globe and Mail Beijing correspondent Nathan VanderKlippe commented on Twitter with the clip, stating “What it looks like when China censors a vice-presidential debate after a question about China is asked - and then lifts the blackout when conversation appears set to move on.”

And, leaked Chinese government documents expose how it steals advanced technology under the banner of research collaboration, and that also demonstrates how China-funded academics are used within the system. The 2016 document is from the Department of Education of China’s Jilin Province. The document is specifically about scientific exchange with U.S. universities and research facilities.

Regeneron Sued By Company With China Ties; China's Chip Lag Behind by 20 Years
22:48

When it comes to the protests and riots that have swept across the United States, there have been rumors about whether China is involved, which organizations are really behind them, and where their money is coming from. To learn more about this, we’ve invited to speak with us Trevor Loudon. He has been researching radical and terrorist groups for more than 30 years, and has exposed these networks heavily as an author and filmmaker.

Meanwhile, it’s now being revealed that while Trump was continuing his work while undergoing treatment for COVID-19 at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland, part of his work was to declassify intelligence related to the Russia investigation. The same day, the US attorney who had been assigned to review unmasking spy requests made by Obama administration officials, related to the Trump-Russia investigations, gave letters of resignation both to Attorney General William Barr and to President Donald Trump. This follows revelations that reports released by the Director of National Intelligence were missing details on unmasking data at the time of the 2016 election.

Birds Down a Chinese Fighter Jet; 'Riding the Dragon' Director Reveals Hunter Biden's China Deals
26:05

There are ongoing allegations about the China and Russia business deals involving Hunter Biden, the son of democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden. Blaze Media and Lightspeed Pictures produced a documentary detailing the case, "Riding the Dragon: The Bidens' Chinese Secrets." To learn more about this we've invited to speak with us the film's director, M.A. Taylor.

Meanwhile, a Chinese fighter plane was taken down by a flock of birds on October 5. Videos of the incident were released by Chinese state media. During an air combat training exercise of the China Southern Theater Air Force, a flock of birds flew over the right side of a low flying jet’s fuselage, and as birds struck the aircraft its engine lost power.

Pelosi Could Become Acting President? Chinese State Media Says Trump 'Paid the Price' With the Virus
23:56

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for the CCP Virus, and Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the state-run Chinese news outlet Global Times, responded on Twitter by stating "President Trump and the first lady have paid the price for his gamble to play down the COVID-19."

Meanwhile, on the note of the Three Gorges Dam, we’ve been monitoring the situation. One interesting thing that has come up is the issue of nuclear power plants in the Yangtze River Basin. On August 24, Guo Wengui, broke the news in a live broadcast that there are three nuclear power plants around the Three Gorges Dam. If the dyke breaks, these nuclear power plants may cause a huge disaster. The issue of the safety of nuclear power plants in mainland China has long been raised by experts, but the mainland media has frequently misled the public by propagating the so-called "low probability of accidents at nuclear power plants."

And a prominent advisor to the Chinese government has declared that democracy and freedom are poisons and cults that conflict with the government. Jin Canrong, whose titles include an Adviser of Policy Planning Office of the National People's Congress, said in a video speech that “democracy is poison and cult.”

Rocket Launch Rains Debris On Chinese Village; Xi Declared 'Core Leader' of Ruling Party
28:02

The US Treasury Department declared that the budget deficit rose a record high of $3 trillion, adding to the $26.7 trillion in 2019, and this announcement followed reports from Chinese State media saying that China may dump its holdings of US treasuries, if tensions grow with the United States. We'll take an in-depth look.

Meanwhile, China held a secretive launch of a Long March 4B rocket near midnight on September 26 in northern Shanxi Province. It was allegedly carrying two remote sensing satellites into orbit, which were HJ-2A and HJ-2B models. SpaceNews noted that it broke its standard protocol in the launch. While it rarely publicly announces its launches ahead of time, it usually publishes airspace closures a few days ahead of time, to make sure aircraft aren’t flying over the area. This time, however, it did not publish notices.

And Xi Jinping has allegedly been declared the “core leader” of the ruling Party, increasing his control over China. RFA reported that the group of Party leaders in the Politburo approved an amendment that names Xi as core leader, and he’s also now inscribed in the “Regulations on the Work of the Central Committee” which means he will hold power indefinitely, and finalizes a process that began with him eliminating term limits in March 2018.

A Policy Advisor To Pompeo Attacked By China; HK Police Surround Student for Reading a Newspaper
23:54

The Trump administration has joined with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to launch a new campaign to combat child exploitation and child trafficking. A White House statement said that Trump administration officials including Attorney General William Barr and White House adviser Ivanka Trump will represent the the Trump administration in a webinar, and support its new “Safety Pledge” initiative for education and awareness of child exploitation.

In Hong Kong, meanwhile, police surrounded and cordoned off a part of the metro station where a high school student was sitting and reading a copy of the pro-democracy Apple Daily newspaper. He was allegedly told that his actions “affect other passengers.” The student is Davis, who is known for holding one-man protests, and is allegedly targeted and surrounded by Hong Kong police frequently.

And the Vatican wants to extend its agreement with the CCP on recognizing the regime’s bishops, which is set to end on October 22. According to Vatican News, Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin said “it seems to me that a direction has been marked out that is worth continuing; then we will see.” The Holy See and the Chinese regime published a joint communication on September 22, and announced a provisional agreement that Vatican News says it aims to “permit the Catholic faithful to have bishops in full communion with the Successor of Peter who are at the same time recognized by the authorities of the People’s Republic of China.”

Jackie Chan Gets to Keep Seized Mansion; Bubonic Plague Spreads to Southern China
24:33

Chinese leaders are moving forward with a new campaign to take over private industry, under the guise of a “mixed-ownership” government program. And recent developments within the Party suggest there’s a divide in the leadership. State media reported that on September 17, the State Council announced that China is ready to give its “continued, unswerving support” to reform and develop state-owned and private businesses. State media also said “greater efforts will be made in deepening mixed-ownership reform, strengthening the modern corporate structure and developing sound market-oriented operating mechanisms.”

Meanwhile, it appears that the actor Jackie Chan will get to keep his $17.6 mansion, after the auction was suddenly withdrawn the day before its planned foreclosure on September 28. Yahoo News cited people familiar with the case, and reported that the auction was withdrawn from the court due to an alleged “objection from an outsider influence.” Details are still thin.

And there are now reports that two types of bubonic plague have been found in Northern and Southern China. After original reports of a case in Inner Mongolia, a new case was confirmed on the evening of September 27 in Yunnan. The local government launched a level four emergency response to prevent the spread of the plague soon after it was confirmed. It was allegedly found after authorities conducted screenings for the disease across the whole county, after three rats were found dead in a village.

Huawei Lab Fire Downplayed by Beijing; US and China Go at Each Other at the UN
28:45

The Epoch Times recently obtained leaked documents that reveal secret Chinese weapons programs in Inner Mongolia—including on advanced rockets. The documents are from the Inner Mongolia Alxa League Development and Reform Commission.

Meanwhile, there is growing debate in the United States over whether Republicans should nominate a new supreme court justice ahead of the 2020 Presidential elections, following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And there is growing concern over the integrity of mail-in ballots for the elections. To learn more about the situation we’ve invited to speak with us Hans von Spakovsky, an attorney, a former member of the Federal Election Commission, and manager of the Heritage Foundation's Election Law Reform Initiative.

In addition to these stories we'll be looking into the US-China war of words at the United Nations, a Chinese police officer in Inner Mongolia died after working for 17 consecutive days, and FBI director Christopher Wray called China "the greatest long-term threat to our nation’s information and intellectual property and to our economic vitality."

Pompeo Exposes Chinese Spies Targeting US Politicians; China Plans Blacklist on US Companies
25:36

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a speech in Wisconsin on September 23 where he exposed some of China’s programs to influence US politicians. He also revealed the State Department is reviewing the activities of two Chinese government organizations involved in these operations in the United States, under the regime’s United Front Work Department, the U.S.-China Friendship Association, and the China Council for the Promotion of Peaceful Reunification.

Meanwhile, the Chinese government is planning to create a blacklist of US companies, as a way of retaliating against US sanctions placed on Chinese companies. The Ministry of Commerce published a “Unreliable Entity List” on September 19 of provisions that will be used in the blacklist. Among the points it looks at are “endangering national sovereignty, security or development interests of China,” and for “suspending normal transactions” with any business, organization, or individual of China that the regime believes goes against normal market principles or damages their rights.

And it's now being revealed that Catholics in China are being persecuted regardless of whether they follow the original religion, or the Chinese government's altered version under the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association. Even people at state-sanctioned churches are facing threats and intimidation, and the regime is shutting down or destroying churches regardless.

21 Large-scale Floods in China; Explosion News Removed; Chinese Regime Tightens Economy Control
26:56

Heavy rainfall continues in parts of China, and on September 22 water levels on the Songhua River in Harbin rose to its warning level. New flood alerts were issued by the Ministry of Water Resources, which warned of coming floods on the Jinsha River in Yunnan, Yuanjiang River, Duliu River in Guizhou, Hongshui River and Youjiang River in Guangxi. It also noted that some small and medium sized rivers in China are expected to have a “super-alarm level of floods.”

Meanwhile, in Suzhou, a major city in Jiangsu Province of East China, a large explosion was caused by a suspected natural gas leak. A notice about the explosion was deleted from Chinese internet soon after it was published. A local gas company issued the statement in the early morning of September 23, and said the explosion was caused by a pipe leak. It also stated the incident was still under investigation.

As we recently reported, it’s now been exposed that the Chinese Communist Party has built a database that includes profiles of people outside China, including in the United States, Australia, and Canada. The profiles allegedly include politicians, businessmen, academics, and others that Chinese authorities may be interested in targeting. This verifies an exclusive story published in The Epoch Times back in 2016, which exposed a database China had built on Americans. To learn more about this we speak with Casey Fleming, CEO of BlackOps Partners Corp, an intelligence and security strategy firm.

China Steals American Movies For Own Propaganda; Chinese Soldiers Crying While Sent to India Border
23:29

A video released by the Chinese People’s Liberation Air Force on September 19 depicted nuclear armed bombers carrying out simulated attacks on a US Air Force base in Guam. Video was released as the regime carried out its second day of military drills near Taiwan—a move that was seen as a threat to the United States having a diplomatic visit in Taiwan.

Meanwhile, a video has been released showing Chinese soldiers crying as they’re allegedly being transported to the disputed border between China and India. The video was initially posted on Chinese social media app WeChat, but was deleted soon after.

And the Chinese government sent a message in a recent court case that criticizing its handling of the virus can result in lengthy prison terms. A Chinese tycoon was sentenced to 18 years in prison and has been fined around $620,000. He was charged for embezzling public funds, accepting bribes, and abusing power from his position at a state-run company. But the case, and Ren Zhiqiang’s heavy sentence, are being interpreted as being meant to send a message to Party members that criticizing or defying Party leader Xi Jinping will not be tolerated. Mr. Ren had published an essay saying he saw the country’s leader as a power-hungry clown. And soon after his essay was published, he disappeared before facing official charges.

Democrats Promise Retaliation if Trump Fills Ginsburg Seat; Japan's New Direction With Presidential Shift
20:28

In the United States, following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, democrats are threatening that if the Trump administration fills her vacant seat ahead of the November elections, they will expand the Supreme Court and pack it with their own judges. Democrat Senator Ed Markey from Massachusetts wrote in a statement that “Mitch McConnell set the precedent. No Supreme Court vacancies filled in an election year. If he violates it, when Democrats control the Senate in the next Congress, we must abolish the filibuster and expand the Supreme Court.”

Meanwhile, Shinzo Abe resigned as Prime Minister of Japan over health reasons, and the new prime minister, Yoshihide Suga, is now taking up the position during a sensitive time when it comes to Japan’s security and economy related to China. We'll be taking an in-depth look into this.

And the sale of TikTok has gone through, meaning people will still be able to download and use the app. Trump gave the go-ahead for the sale of the company, which for its future IPO will allow Oracle to gain a 12.5 percent stake and Walmart to gain a 7.5 percent stake. Going forward, four of the five members of the board of the directors for TikTok Global will be Americans, among whom will be Walmart CEO Doug McMillion. The Chinese company that owns TikTok, ByteDance, will still have majority ownership.

TikTok and WeChat Banned in the US; What's Really Behind China's Airport Construction Binge
29:39

President Donald Trump’s administration will block Americans from downloading China-based applications WeChat and TikTok, citing national security concerns. This ban will go in effect on Sunday. U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a statement “Today’s actions prove once again that President Trump will do everything in his power to guarantee our national security and protect Americans from the threats of the Chinese Communist Party.”

Meanwhile, China is making a new push for logistic systems to stabilize its supply chains, and planned projects include the construction of hundreds of new airports. Yet behind this move is something deeper, and it may give us another hint at the true state of the Chinese economy. We'll be explaining this in-depth.

And the new Quad alliance formed between the United States, Japan, India, and Australia is working to stand up against the Chinese Communist Party. According to Bruce Klingner, Senior Research Fellow on Northeast Asia at The Heritage Foundation, Japan in particular may need a bit more of a push to reach its full capabilities — and when it comes to standing up against the Chinese government, this may be necessary. He argues that the issue Japan faces isn’t its defense capabilities, but instead its hesitancy to employ them. To get a better sense of this, we’ve invited Bruce Klingner to speak with us.

China Targets Pompeo as the Number One Enemy; Twitter Suspends Virologist Account For Virus Origin
23:29

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been targeted as a top enemy of the Chinese regime with the CCP's mouthpiece TV station calling him the "common enemy of mankind." Other state-media have chimed in and even called Pompeo a "fat pig."

Meanwhile, Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist who defected to the United States, had her account suspended by Twitter after publishing a research paper that suggests the novel coronavirus had a lab origin. Dr. Yan and others are now criticizing Twitter for restricting scientific research based on political interests.

Meanwhile, it appears the two main political factions in China are now fighting for financial power. These would be the faction under Xi Jinping, the head of the Party, and another faction led by former Party leader Jiang Zemin.

And in the United States, the Trump administration is now investigating the investigators when it comes to the team of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who ran the Trump-Russia investigations. It has now been revealed that when the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General went to review the devices of the investigative team, Mueller’s team had erased the data on many of the phones for various reasons. To learn more about this, and its significance, we’ve invited to speak with us today Marc Ruskin, who is a 27-year veteran of the FBI.

UK Chinese Ambassador’S Twitter Likes Spotlighted; Did China Play A Role In the US Protests?
24:21

There has been ongoing speculation on whether China has played any part in the ongoing protests and riots that have swept across the United States. The Daily Signal reported that the website for Black Futures Lab, which is a venture of BLM founder Alicia Garza, has ties to a pro-Chinese government organization.

If you go to the organization’s website and click the donate button, it shows that the money goes to an organization called the Chinese Progressive Association, and the page notes that “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.” We'll be taking an in-depth look at this.

And on August 29, people in China began to report that one of the four major state-owned banks in China, the China Construction Bank, quietly released a digital yuan wallet service for its app, and then quickly disabled the feature after it gained widespread attention. There has been speculation in China on why this happened, and some took it as a sign that the Chinese economy has a bottleneck. We'll look into what may really be behind the digital yuan launch.

2.4 Million People Are On China's Target Database; Vaccine Plant Leak in China Sickens Thousands

In China, a leak from a vaccine plant has left thousands of local residents with chronic illness. Nikkei reports that in Northwest China’s Lanzhou city, a biopharmaceutical plant exposed residents to an animal-borne bacterial disease that’s highly contagious and difficult to treat, known as brucellosis.

The cause of the outbreak was contaminated exhaust from the Lanzhou Biopharmaceutical Plant, which is under the state-owned China Animal Husbandry Industry. Symptoms of the disease include recurring fever, severe headaches, joint pain, and other symptoms that can last years.

Meanwhile, it’s been revealed that the Chinese regime has a database of around 2.4 million people and 650,000 institutions that heavily targets influential people overseas. Financial Review reported that a Chinese military contractor was boasting about spreading disinformation and promoting conflicts. We'll go in-depth into this.

US Sanctions Cause Chip Desperation in China;China Pushes for “Fighting Mentality” Within Population
27:45

The Chinese leadership is pushing to create a “fighting mentality” among the Chinese people, with statements from state-run media and from Xi Jinping. Xinhua published an article that recounted a speech from Xi given at the Central Party School titled “Strengthen Fighting Mentality, Reinforce Fighting Capabilities.”

In its recounting of Xi’s speech, Xinhua called on the Chinese people to deeply understand what it calls “the great fight.” It wrote “The first impression when reading this article is, the word ‘fighting’ permeates through the entire piece, from top to bottom. The whole article is no more than 2000 words, but the word ‘fight’ appeared 56 times.” We'll be explaining this story and its context in-depth.

And China declared that a September 12 launch of its Kuaizhou-1A rocket was a failure. The rocket was carrying a new high-resolution remote sensing satellite that the regime was planning to add into its JiLin-1 satellite system. It reported two hours after the launch that the satellite failed to enter its orbit, and cited abnormal performance. We'll go into why this matters.

What's Going On With China's Propaganda Department?; Big Explosion Covered Up by Chinese State Media
25:07

In a recent conference, Xi used a famous slogan from Hong Kong’s anti-extradition movement as well as stated “The people of the country are all cheering for ‘hot dry noodles!’”

A big explosion broke out at a hotel in South China’s Zhuhai. It is believed that a gas leak caused the explosion. Officials said the local fire department is still investigating the cause of the fire. CCTV news posted on Weibo that local firefighters dispatched multiple teams, more than a dozen fire trucks, and many firefighters came to the rescue. However, CCTV claimed that only 3 people were injured in the explosion.

Locals and witnesses said there were more than 200 injured and were sent to the hospital. However official Guangdong newspaper Nanfang Daily said on Weibo that the Propaganda Department of the Doumen District Party Committee denied this claim and said that the Internet police are investigating the source of the rumor. Chinese authorities have always strictly controlled the spread of reports on major fatal incidents and related news on the Internet.

And it was 19 years ago today that terrorists launched the attacks on 9/11, and while this is a day of mourning for the United States, it has typically been a day of celebration for the Chinese leadership. This year, however, it has changed its tone, and its mouthpiece news outlets don’t appear to be using it this time in their anti-American propaganda. We'll look into why this is.

US Revokes Visas of Over 1,000 Chinese Nationals; The Coming Space Race Between the US and China
26:56

The United States has revoked the visas of more than 1,000 Chinese nationals over their alleged links to the Chinese military. Over 60 students holding F-1 visas including postgraduates and undergraduates said in a WeChat group that the notices said they’d have to apply for new visas if they wanted to travel to the United States.

Meanwhile, Europe appears to be waking up to the threats of Chinese subversion. The Chinese Communist Party’s Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, and Politburo Member Yang Jiechi recently visited Europe on a diplomatic tour. But instead of being welcomed, they were criticized by European countries one after another.

And the Pentagon views China’s militarized space programs as a serious threat to the United States. Among the technologies it named were anti-satellite missiles and space robots that could destroy US satellites. To get a better idea about the seriousness of space and the US response to it through its Space Force, we’ve invited to speak with us today Brandon Weichert, geopolitical analyst and author of “Winning Space: How America Remains a Superpower.”

'Mulan' and Disney Criticized for Thanking Authorities Involved in Muslim Concentration Camps
27:20

Disney is facing heavy criticism, and the phrase “boycott Mulan” has been trending on Twitter after it emerged that they filmed in Xinjiang. This comes after Disney thanked several Chinese government branches involved in the persecution of Muslim Uyghurs in the end credits of the live-action movie Mulan. This includes a thank you to the Turpan Public Security Bureau in Xinjiang. The Turpan Municipality Public Security Bureau was recently included on the US "Entity List" for its involvement in human rights abuses.

Meanwhile, to gain deeper insights into the power struggles within the Chinese leadership, and the culture and thinking among its top leaders, we had the pleasure of speaking with Kay Rubacek of Swoop Films about her new book, “Who Are China’s Walking Dead?” It features personal essays based on exclusive and rare interviews with former Chinese officials, and explains why they refer to themselves as the "walking dead."

And in other news, the Chinese government has also now begun using Blockchain to power part of its social credit system. Blockchain is one of the main systems at the heart of the Bitcoin electronic currency, and allows for a type of intranet that can exist between devices. The technology is now being used to extend the government's citizen databases from online monitoring across different provinces in China, so that people can’t escape their citizen profiles when traveling to a different province.

China Implements 'Civilization Code' to Expand Control; GOP and Dems Explain US-China Policy
27:57

The local government of China’s Jiangsu Province has launched a new social control system that combines the health code program with the Party's social credit system, to create a new so-called “civilization code.” The system gives each person a civilian score, which ranks them into different levels. And this level is then used by the government to judge who gets priority, or who should be subjected to restrictions or punishments.

The system appears to function as an expanded version of the social credit system. It’s being rolled out currently in Suzhou, which is a major city in the province, and will apply to everyone over 18 years old. Currently, it has two active categories to measure people by, based on a ranking system of 1,000 points.

And to get a better picture of the China policies of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and of President Donald Trump, we've invited two political strategists. We'll be speaking with Robin Biro, a Democratic strategist who worked as a regional director on Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign; and Jason Johnson a Republican political strategist who was the chief strategist for Ted Cruz's 2016 presidential campaign.

We'll be going into these topics and more in this episode of Crossroads.

China's Real Agenda for the United States and the World
11:55

We’ve been hearing about Xi’s coming purge among Party members, about the regime’s strong-arm tactics in diplomacy, and about its various programs using spies to rob and subvert the west. But what we hear less about is the actual goals of these systems.

In its 2020 report to Congress on military and security developments in China, the Pentagon outlined the national strategy of Chinese leaders. It describes the regime’s plans of hiding its true agendas while quietly building capabilities and strengths, its views on the United States as its main strategic competitor, and its goals to build China into a powerful country dictated by socialism.

In official propaganda, it latches the identity and the objectives of the government with that of China overall, and so the statement of the “Chinese Dream” means the dream of the communist party. And according to the report, the regime’s national ambitions and statecraft can’t be characterized accurately without considering the communist political system that is “underpinned by the Party’s theory of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics and the Party itself as the essential feature.”

We'll be taking an in-depth look at this strategy, in this episode of Crossroads.

Fake Chinese Louis Vuitton Bags a Security Threat?; Xi Jinping Unveils His "Never Agrees" Policy
25:40

In Shanghai, police arrested 62 criminal gangs that were manufacturing and selling counterfeit Louis Vuitton bags. Chinese state news outlet CCTV reported that authorities seized 30 sets of counterfeiting equipment, 2,000 counterfeit bags, and over 100,000 pieces of raw materials. The estimated value of the seized goods was around $14.6 million.

These are not normal counterfeits, however. In the knock-off bags were anti-counterfeiting NFC sensor chips that could be scanned with a smartphone, and would redirect people to the official website of Louis Vuitton. The inclusion of the chips is adding to concerns both that chips are being used for illegal purposes in China, and that chips like this could be used for domestic and foreign surveillance.

Meanwhile, Chinese leader XI Jinping is pushing a new policy called the five “Never Agrees”. Under this, Xi says the Chinese people will never agree with anyone who attempts to split the Chinese Communist Party from the Chinese people, or impose their will on China. Xi explained the position during an event commemorating the 75th anniversary of the victory over Japan in World War II.

US Building New 'NATO' to Against CCP; Crop Blight in China Raises Concerns of Food Crisis
28:32

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has placed new restrictions on the ability of Chinese diplomats to move freely in the United States, in response to similar policies on US diplomats by the Chinese regime.

The diplomats will now need permission from the US State Department if they want to visit university campuses on US soil, or meet with local government officials. They will also need approval to hold cultural events outside the Chinese embassies and consular posts, if the events have more than 50 attendees.

Meanwhile, in China, two additional issues are deepening concerns around food security. In Shandong, a type of wheat disease caused by fungus has damaged close to two million acres of wheat crops, and the situation is reportedly growing worse. It has so far impacted an estimated 123 countries and some farmlands are reporting crop losses of between 30 and 50 percent. Local officials are saying a major wheat disease in Shandong could pose a serious threat to food security.

Chinese Military Rolls Into Inner Mongolia; Xi May Restore 'Chairman' Title
27:11

Several reports are noting a familiar pattern now taking place in the Chinese leadership that ties back to Mao Zedong and his path to achieving absolute power over the party. Xi Jinping may be looking to bring back something similar to the title of “Chairman” that was established under Mao.

This ties to Xi’s new internal purge targeting party members, mainly in the systems of law, and that’s designed openly to mimic the Yan’an rectification movement of 1941 under Mao Zedong, which was the party's bloodiest internal purge. We'll be taking an in-depth look at this.

And in Inner Mongolia, where protests are now breaking out over a recent China policy, videos suggest Chinese authorities have responded by sending the military in to quell the unrest.

China-Russia's Relationship Health in Question; Leaked Documents Reveal China's 220,000 Spies
25:46

The relationship between Russia and China shifted after the Cold War. China, which had been formed under Soviet influence, now plays the dominant role, while Russia and its many leaders who starkly remember the old days, now play the subordinate role. But as Chinese authorities faces internal and external crisis, and as the regime becomes more aggressive on the world stage, how long will this relationship last?

In 2008 when both countries saw the US financial crisis, China had determined the decline of the United States had begun, and that it could abandon its narrative of a “peaceful rise.” Soon after, China began its aggressive takeover of the South China Sea and the East China Sea. Russia made a similar move around that time as well, when at the Munich Security Conference in 2007, Russia also set out on a new push to assert its claims over post-Soviet regions, which included Georgia and Ukraine.

And in other news, leaked documents from China show how authorities use students in the Belt and Road Initiative and for civil diplomacy. The program uses overseas students and manages the associations under its United Front Work Department, through the Central Committee. The association allegedly has 42 local organizations and 220,000 members.

Jackie Chan's Mansion Seized by Authorities as His Ties to China's Factional Battles Surface
26:08

A Beijing mansion belonging to movie star Jackie Chan has been seized by authorities and is now being put up for auction. Details are still thin, but some analysts believe Jackie Chan may have been targeted for alleged tax evasion, related to promotions he did from 2006 to 2008 for a land company in Beijing, which paid him 20.6 million renminbi that was directly converted into credit for his purchase.

Yet, questions are being raised on why now, given that Jackie Chan’s family lived in the home for 13 years. And why have Beijing authorities seemingly ignored Jackie Chan’s influence in China, Hong Kong, and even in the United States, especially given his relative positive stance on the Chinese leadership, in order to seize and auction his mansion.

The move may be related to factional battles within the Party. Jackie Chan’s ties are through the network of former vice chairman Zeng Qinghong, who was under the Jiang Faction. This is the main faction fighting with the faction of Xi Jinping, the current head of the Party. The timing of this move appears to be related to the recent end of the Party's high level Beidaihe meeting, after which Xi Jinping launched new purges targeted areas of society still controlled by the Jiang faction.

In this episode of Crossroads, we'll be taking an in-depth look at this story, and more.

Xi Jinping Lied to by 100 Officials amidst "Dragon Vein" Fights; China Threatens To Ban iPhone
20:35

A leaked internal Chinese government inspection report shows that Party leader Xi Jinping was lied to by close to 100 officials in his orders to destroy illegal villas in the Qinling Mountains in Shaanxi, which are known as the “dragon vein”.

Officials in Shaanxi Province built many luxury villas on the mountains over the past decade, and Xi has given instructions on multiple occasions to have these villas demolished, yet his orders were repeatedly ignored. Then in 2018, Xi sent Xu Lingyi, Deputy Secretary of the Central Commission on Disciplinary Inspection, to the province to carry out investigations. This led to the demolition of the illegal villas, and the purge of several officials.

The 20,000-word document obtained by The Epoch Times details the internal reports on the incident from the Xi'an Qinling Office. And it shows that despite all the actions, Xi is still being deceived by local officials across all levels of the government.

China Threatens US With South China Sea Actions; Defense Secretary Says US Prepared to Defend
30:00

In the South China Sea, the Chinese military sent a threat to the United States by firing four medium-range ballistic missiles into the water. This happened as the Trump administration passed sanctions on 24 Chinese companies for their role in helping the regime build militarized artificial islands in the region.

US commander of the Navy fleet in the area, Vice Adm. Scott Conn, responded saying that the US Navy will continue to operate there, and that “Our naval forces are ready to respond to any threat to our allies or partners throughout the region.”

Meanwhile, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper published an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal, stating that the Pentagon is prepared for threats from the Chinese military, and that the United States and its allies are “ready to defend every front.”

North Korea Patrol Boat Fired At Chinese Fishing Boats; Richest Woman in China bought $2.5M Passport
26:28

Chinese authorities announced plans to remake Mao Zedong’s Rectification Campaign, which was the Party’s bloodiest internal purge. Chen Yixin, Secretary-general of the Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission, who also directs the National Political and Legal Affairs Team Education and Rectification Pilot Office announced that the first stage of the campaign has already been completed.

The official announcement cites Mao, and states the Chinese government has again started a campaign to purge “corrupt elements” in order to create an “ironclad army” of law enforcement agencies. Mao’s Yan’an Rectification Campaign, which lasted from 1942 to 1945, focused on internal indoctrination in the party to “unify their thinking” and killed an estimated 10,000 in purges mainly focused on party members.

The new campaign will look to ensure that police, judges, and state security agents stay unconditionally loyal and in line with party policy, and to Xi Jinping. And while it will function as a party purge, it will also be viewed as Xi proactively fighting corruption in China’s legal systems.

Xinjiang Residents Force to Take Medicine; China Offers Cash Prizes to Report on Religious Activities
26:30

Chinese authorities are offering rewards of up to 100,000 yuan, or about $14,000, for reporting on activities of people who practice any from a list of over 20 religions that are persecuted in China.

The new directive details measures to enhance its state abuses of religions. Issues people can get rewards for reporting include if they see people handing out leaflets or pictures, handing religious banners, and for publishing and printing books that preach religion, among other issues considered crimes by the ruling party.

And after footage showed shredding trucks destroying documents at the Chinese consulate in New York, a similar shredding truck has now been photographed outside the Chinese consulate in San Francisco. This is again raising speculation on possible closures of the consulates.

[Exclusive] Xi's Leadership Threatened; Uyghur Women Force to Marry Chinese Men For Gene Washing
25:00

TikTok is suing the Trump administration over the recent executive order to ban the app’s American operations unless it’s sold to a US company by mid-September. The executive order was introduced over concerns that TikTok, which is owned by Chinese company Bytedance, could share users data with Chinese authorities.

Meanwhile, China and Russia are looking to create a financial alliance to get rid of their reliance on the US dollar. This is in the context of both countries facing US sanctions, and China preparing to launch a new digital currency.

China's Ministry of Commerce is planning to launch the new currency in 28 urban areas of China, covering around 400 million people. It can promote the currency as a way for other countries to get around US sanctions, but its digital nature will also give local authorities power to monitor transactions beyond the extent of the US dollar.

People Flee Sichuan Amid Chemical Plant Leak; 'Nothing to Eat' Went Viral in China
21:50

In a district of Sichuan Province, there was a suspected gas leak from a chemical plant. Many citizens fled the city, after smelling a strong odor. On August 21, local resident Mr. Zheng told NTD that there was a thick pungent mist in the air in Wutongqiao District for three consecutive days.

Colleges and universities in the United States, meanwhile, have received warnings from the US State Department to divest from Chinese holdings in their endowments. Keith Krach, the undersecretary for economic growth, energy and the environment, wrote in a letter that boards of US university endowments “would be prudent to divest” from firms or stocks tied to China.

He said this was in the “likely outcome” that the firms may be delisted from US exchanges by the end of next year. He also asked the universities to “strongly consider publicly disclosing to your campus communities immediately,” all the Chinese companies that the university endowments are invested in.

Secret Docs Destroyed by China; Trump Reacts to Steve Bannon Arrest: Sad; China's Spy Program Exposed
24:34

The Three Gorges Dam is now facing its largest flood peak in history, and for the first time has opened all 11 discharge gates. This is taking place as the dam is under pressure from new flood waves on the Yangtze River at least double the size of the previous, and the current flood wave is at least double that of the previous—which had already raised concerns over whether the dam could hold.

In other news, The Epoch Times obtained an internal document from Daqing City’s foreign affairs bureau, which revealed local governments are pushing for a Pioneering Plan that includes the Hundred Talent Plan, a state-level version of the Thousand Talents Program.

And The Epoch Times received a leaked secret document from the China National Petroleum Corporation that details orders from China for its front organizations to destroy documents and “go underground.”

Fake Flood Victim Meets Xi; No More Paper Money in China?; 3000 Partied in Epicenter Wuhan
19:31

Chinese leader Xi Jinping made his first appearance in the recent disasters to inspect Anhui, which authorities had previously claimed was “sacrificed” to save other areas from flooding. And discussions around Xi's visit to Anhui quickly turned to whether the disaster victims he met with were actors.

When Xi visited a local resident’s house, a woman came out to greet him holding a baby in her arms. Netizens pointed out that this "disaster victim" looked very similar to Yan Jing, the deputy captain of the Funan County Public Security Brigade in Anhui.

And how would you like it if you no longer had paper money, and your every purchase was tracked by a centralized bank tied to the government? Well, if China’s new digital currency takes off, this may be the future of cash. We'll take an in-depth look at this.

In Gansu Province, the floods reached three stories high, and the wooden homes of many villagers collapsed. The province is among the hardest hit by the floods along the Yangtze River, which is already seeing a fifth wave of the floods, despite the fourth wave still not being over.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the China Banking Regulatory Commission, Guo Shuqing, is warning of a potential global financial crisis and is blaming the United States for impacting the US dollar through a Federal Reserve stimulus, and for blacklisting Chinese companies and entities.

And in a recent article, Xi Jinping, the head of the communist party in China, said “The foundation of China’s political economy can only be a Marxist political economy, and not be based on other economic theories.

Whistleblower On China's NGO Faces Serious Threats; Generals Pushback On Xi Jinping; 4th Wave Formed

A whistleblower in a Chinese Red Cross scandal has issued a call for help. Jiang Pengyong exposed how the Chinese Red Cross has been reselling virus protective gear that it receives through donations. Jiang said in an interview that he had previously decided to do business with the Chinese Red Cross, and since exposing its crimes he has received death threats, and has been threatened with jail time.

Meanwhile, Xi Jinping’s “wolf warrior” diplomacy is getting pushback from hard-liners in the Party leadership, who believe it’s more effective for the regime to use a strategy from former Party leader Deng Xiaoping to “hide our capability and bide our time.”

Among Xi’s two main critics are two PLA hawks, including retired Major General Qiao Liang, author of “Unrestricted Warfare”, which proposed a form of unconventional war to dominate other countries by weaponizing open systems including in culture, economy, and ideology.

Humiliation of Chinese Premier Raises Hints at Power Struggle; Beijing's Tiananmen Square Flooded
22:39

There are signs of infighting between CCP leader Xi Jinping, and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang. Epoch Times noted that on July 31, the CCP held an opening ceremony for the initial completion of its Beidou-3 global satellite navigation system, which functions as a Chinese replacement for the US GPS system.

When the conference host, Deputy Prime Minister Liu He, read the list of participants, he paused to give Xi Jinping time to accept people’s applause. When Li Keqiang’s turn came up, he stood to accept the applause and pay his respects, yet Liu He quickly moved on to say the names of others present. This was seen as an embarrassment to Li Keqiang, and was seen as something that Liu He would not have dared to do, unless he was ordered by a superior to Li Keqiang.

Meanwhile, with the ongoing disasters in China, Tiananmen Square in Beijing, which has deep symbolic significance for China, was flooded on August 12 by torrential rains.

Xi Jinping Sends Veiled Message About "Emperor" of China Plans; TikTok Using Banned Method to Spy
24:01

Xi Jinping, the leader of the Chinese Communist Party, allegedly sent a veiled message in a recent manifesto suggesting he intends to be leader for life. This was included in a statement on the fifth plenary session of the 19th Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, which will be held in Beijing in October. The announcement was carried by the CCP mouthpiece news outlet, Xinhua.

It stated that attendees will assess the proposals for the next five year plan, which goes until 2025, and stated they’ll also assess “future targets for 2035.” Nikkei noted that many China watchers took the note about 2035 as a secret code suggesting that Xi intends to stay in power at least for the next 15 years, when he turns 82 -- the same age that Mao Zedong died at. Xi previously did away with term limits.

And as the US moves forward to ban the app, the Wall Street Journal has recently discovered that TikTok had been using methods banned by Google, to bypass security safeguards in the Android operating system to collect unique information from millions of mobile devices. It said this data would allow TikTok to track users online without users being able to opt out.

China Challenges US GPS System; CCP's Secret Map; Typhoon Slams into Shanghai
23:51

North Korean newspaper "Daily NK" quoted a source stating the explosion appeared to be from a gas leak from a home’s liquid gasoline tank, and the fires spread to dozens of nearby houses.

The source said that the serial fire caused by the gas explosion burned residential houses for about an hour, and the entire multi-family community was completely scorched in the explosion. Given the restrictive nature of reporting in North Korea, the true cause and scale of the explosion is still unknown.

And the typhoon is now hitting the city of Shanghai, where heavy rains have disrupted traffic, and led to pooling of water up to nearly four feet deep. Winds were estimated at around 85 miles per hour at the typhoon’s epicenter. More than 600 flights in Shanghai were disrupted, and travel by train, ferry, and bus has also been disrupted.

China Enters “Martial State”; China's Tofu buildings hit by Typhoon; Fake Next-Gen Jet
23:52

The typhoons now hitting China have brought attention to another disaster: the infamous “tofu buildings.” The phrase is meant to suggest buildings have the structural integrity of tofu, and is often used when shoddy construction is exposed in China -- often a product of Party officials embezzling construction funds, low quality construction materials, and other issues.

Meanwhile in Hong Kong, police issued an arrest warrant for a US citizen, as the Chinese regime cracks down on pro-democracy activists. This is after China implemented sweeping new national security laws that extends mainland Chinese law into the formerly autonomous Hong Kong, and through that, the rest of the world.

And the China has entered a wartime state, with air rad drills, billboards alerting former military staff of possible conscription, and military shows to rally people behind the Party.

Videos of the fire showed a tower of black smoke over the building, and additional video footage showed the impact of the blast. The case of the incident is being investigated.

Scenic sites have also been temporarily closed, and outdoor movie screenings in 7 commercial districts have been cancelled.

And the US embassy in Beijing is holding an auction to sell off items including furniture and electrical appliances.

Locusts the New Norm; Chinese Diplomats reduced in the US; CCP's Deception Losing Effect
22:14

Locusts coming into China from abroad may become a new norm, according to a July 27 statement from the China's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs. The Ministry only emphasized that locusts invaded China from abroad, but didn’t explain that the locust plague is already ravaging many parts of China. It’s claiming the issue is “preventable and controllable.”

Meanwhile, The Washington Times published an exclusive report, alleging the Trump administration is preparing to order China to reduce its diplomats in the United States to levels equal to the number of US diplomats in China.

And, Chinese propaganda attempting to rile up sentiments about the US threat and war preparations don’t appear to be taking hold among many Chinese people. RFA reports that while the Chinese leadership is holding nuclear defense drills, launching anti-American propaganda, and using other measures, the Chinese people no longer appear to be buying into it.

23:47

During the first virus outbreak in China, concerns began to spread about possible food shortages. This included an alleged leaked government memo that caused panic buying. And now with the floods, locusts, the swine flu, and another virus outbreak now spreading, there are signs that food supplies are becoming an issue.

Meanwhile, in Beijing a strange anomaly was seen. Despite it being a hot summer day on July 28, it began snowing. The scene was captured on video by many residents.

And India, Australia, and Japan are coming together with the United States to form a new alliance against China among Indo-Pacific powers. This included naval drills last week between the four nations, which were accompanied by the United States declaring China's claims to the South China Sea are illegal; and backing of other alliance members on the same line.

21:45

With concerns growing over a possible collapse of the Three Gorges Dam, where authorities have opened all water discharge gates amid heavy flooding in China, several issues with the dam are coming to light. We'll take an in-depth look at these.

Meanwhile, with the ongoing floods in China, the third wave of the floods passed through the city of Chongqing on July 27, and the water levels in the Yangtze River and the Jialing River have continued to rise.

And Xi Jinping may have sent a veiled message by making a visit to the Siping Battle Memorial Hall. He visited the memorial on July 22, which pays tribute to the decisive battle for Siping City in 1947 and 1948, between the communist party and the nationalist Koumintang.

More Chinese Cities On Lockdown; Third Flood Wave Forms In China; Slave Labor Exposed
22:30

The city of Yining was reportedly shut down in the middle of night. This is the second city in Xinjiang province that has been shutdown, with the other city being Urumqi.

While Urumqi city has been placed on lockdown, the number of confirmed virus cases is continuing to rise. According to a report from the Xinjiang Uyghur Health Commission, since July 26, there have been 41 newly confirmed CCP virus cases in the Xinjiang Uyghur area (including Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps), all of which were in Urumqi. 38 out of the 41 new cases were asymptomatic, and there are now 8795 people under observation. And of course, keep in mind the CCP has repeatedly played down its numbers.

The Yangtze River is currently experiencing its second wave flood, which is worse than the first. Waters from this second wave flood have just passed the Three Gorges Dam and are still moving downstream.

And now, an official announcement is saying the a third wave flood has formed upstream on the Yangtze River.

Three Gorges Dam Collapse Simulation Goes Viral; China Retaliates on US Consulate; Slave-Free Company
24:04

Concerns over the integrity of the Three Gorges Dam are mounting after a video went viral simulating the destruction that could happen if the dam were to collapse.

Meanwhile, after the US ordered China to close its consulate in Houston, the Chinese regime retaliated by telling the US to close its consulate in Chengdu. The US Consulate in Chengdu opened in 1985 and currently has more than 200 employees, of whom about 150 are Chinese hired locally.

And Republican Senator Josh Hawley is going to introduce a bill that will hold US companies accountable for having slave labor in their supply chains—which could be a major blow against the Chinese government, which runs labor camps using religious dissidents. Hawley said in a statement, “If corporate America wants to be the face of social change today, they should have to certify they are completely slave-free.”

Meanwhile, The College Board, which develops the SAT test materials, is being called out for its ties to China's Confucius Institutes.

And, the Chinese Consulate in Houston was ordered by the US government on July 22 to close and was given 72 hours to do so. We take an in-depth look at what was said around the closure, and how these may relate to common spy activities run out of Chinese consulates.

Earthquakes Hit Tibet & Xinjiang; Floods Bring Food Crisis; China's Internet Police Operations Exposed
23:34

As floods continue in southern and central China, in the north, China is facing droughts. And this, combined with locusts, is furthering the risk of food shortages. Many areas currently being hit by floods and droughts are among China’s top regions for growing grains. For rice farmers, Chinese state reports say harvests are plentiful, but local interviews and reporting show they had almost no harvest in the early season, and substantially reduced harvests in the mid and late seasons.

Meanwhile, on July 21 earthquakes hit in Tibet and Xinjiang. There was a 4.1 magnitude earthquake in Bomi County of Linzhi City of Tibet; and a 3.6 magnitude earthquake in Yutian County of Xinjiang. This was followed by another 4.1 earthquake, also in Bomi county of Tibet.

A second wave of floods on the Yangtze River formed on its upper reaches on July 17, and this next wave is expected to bring worse floods than the first. It’s already impacting the Three Gorges Dam, and flood discharge from the dam has intensified flooding in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River. There are already 16 hydrological stations in the Dongting Lake area that have exceeded water levels; and 81 embankments have also exceeded their warning levels.

Meanwhile, the CCP has placed the capital city of Xinjiang, Urumqi, under a “wartime state” to allegedly contain the virus. Official reports claim that by July 18 there have been 17 confirmed virus cases and 23 asymptomatic cases, although numbers from the CCP have proven untrustworthy in the past.

Chinese Fight Police Over Lockdown Passes; Chinese Media Fake Rescue Video; Officials Sanctioned

Chinese state media were exposed for publishing a fake video of a heroic disaster rescue by communist party members. The video shows 15 “party members” of a rescue unit of the Chinese Air Force jump into chest-high water to stop water from being released from the Ganjiang River in Nanchang, Jiangxi. However, the truth of the footage was quickly revealed: it was a video from June showing a practice exercise by a different rescue team in Zhengzhou of Henan in the Enshi Grand Canyon of Hubei. Many Chinese netizens lashed out at the fake reports, calling them “shameless.”

Meanwhile, after close to 600,000 Hong Kong residents voted in primary polls for democracy candidates, which was seen as a vote against the new National Security Laws, local authorities declared that the vote was “illegal,” and that local authorities are now launching an investigation. They claimed the vote was intended as being against government legislation, which could be a violation of the new National Security Laws that forbid dissent.

And residents in Xihongmen town, in the suburbs of Beijing, recently fought with police about having to pay for new entry passes to their village. These entry passes are part of a new system enacted by the government to monitor people’s movements in an effort to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus

The whereabouts of top CCP officials are still unknown — continuing a trend that started just ahead of news about the new virus outbreaks in Beijing and new lockdown measures.

As this takes place, a large number of Chinese military vehicles were shown in videos on July 14 parked along the roadside in Wuhan, the epicenter of the new coronavirus, which has also now been hit by severe floods.

And the floods are also continuing, and the situation for the Chinese people is growing worse. In Jiangxi Province, the capital city, Nanchang City, was hit by massive floods. And in the surrounding counties, residents in towns and villages have been trapped by the flood waters for close to 72 hours. Traffic and communications have been cut off.

Chinese Impacted by Disasters Get $1.50; Yangtze River Level Could Submerge First Story of Buildings
25:10

Waters on the Yangtze River reached 95 feet, making the water levels the fourth highest in known history, according to data released by the Yangtze River Hydrology Network. The average ground elevation of Wuhan City is around 79 feet, which means the water level in parts of the city could be about the height to submerge the first floor of a building.

Disaster relief in China is very minimal, raising concerns over the wellbeing of the 37 million people in 27 provinces who are known to have been affected. For its aid program, Chinese authorities are giving less than 10 renminbao, or less than $1.50, per person. This is taking place, as many people have lost their homes, their farms, and other possessions; and are struggling for food. And it takes place while authorities are claiming its market is booming and is drawing in large amounts of foreign investment.

A Retired Indian Colonel published satellite images on July 10 that are now making rounds, which appear to show the government opened all floodgates on the dam. He wrote on Twitter, “Why did China open the floodgates of Three Gorges Dam prematurely.” He notes the opening was before authorities issued a warning, before the Yangtze was flooded on July 2, and noted the move may have flooded Wuhan just before an inspection by a representative from the World Health Organization.

5 Earthquakes Hit China; Chinese Gov Sanctions US Lawmakers
24:01

The series of disasters is continuing in China, with ongoing floods and five earthquakes on July 12 and 13. On July 12, this included a 5.1 magnitude earthquake about 19 miles from the city of Tangshan in Hebei, raising concerns of a repeat of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in 1976 that killed over 240,000 people.

The same day there was a 4.4 magnitude earthquake about 34 miles from Honghe Hani and the Yi Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan. A 4.7 magnitude earthquake hit about 35 miles from the Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Gansu. A 4.1 magnitude earthquake hit about 84 miles from Hotan Prefecture in Xinjiang. And the following day on July 13, a 5 magnitude earthquake hit about 22 miles from I-Li in Xinjiang.

And, the Chinese leadership has placed sanctions on three US lawmakers, and one ambassador. This was openly done in retaliation for their work to sanction CCP officials involved in human rights abuses of Muslims in Xinjiang. Under the sanctions on US officials, Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, Rep. Chris Smith, and Ambassador for Religious freedom Sam Brownback, will be unable to travel to China, and while the CCP has not given complete details, its foreign ministry spokesperson says the sanctions will mirror those placed on Chinese officials.

Documentary film: When the Plague Arrives. A historical perspective
21:04

Nearly every country in the world felt the impact of the new coronavirus, whether it was lockdowns, economic loss, or the impact of the virus itself. Yet, while the recent virus is unique in having the whole world face it together, pandemics like this have existed throughout history, and we can look to history to better understand how people in the past would regard a trial like this.

"When the Plague Arrives" is a documentary from our partner media ENTD, and although it's advertisements have been censored by YouTube, we believe it's an important service to provide a film like this. Joshua Philipp, host of Crossroads, was among the contributors to this documentary, which pulls from classic literature and ancient history, and relates the lessons from the past to the world today. May it bring clarity and hope during this time of crisis.

Floods Sweep Away Cars and Homes; Virus Relief Money Went to China-Linked Companies
24:25

Millions of dollars in loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) went to companies linked to the Chinese Communist Party and state-owned enterprises. The National Pulse published an exclusive story on this, noting that some were tied to the CCP’s Confucius Institute.

And the Justice Department announced the arrest of a professor and researcher named Song Guo Zheng, who it said has strong ties to China and is being charged with illegally using US grant funds to develop scientific expertise for China. Similar to Dr. Charles Lieber, the former Harvard chemistry professor who is also facing charges, Zheng was allegedly tied to the CCP’s Thousand Talents Program.

Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers said in a statement “Yet again, we are faced with a professor at a U.S. University, who is a member of a Chinese Talent Plan, allegedly and deliberately failing to disclose his relationship with a Chinese university and receipt of funds from the Chinese Government in order to obtain millions of dollars in U.S. grant money designed to benefit the health and well-being of the people of the United States — not to be hijacked to supplement the research goals of the Chinese Communist Party.”

Evacuations In China As Hubei Dam Begins to Slide; Cities Issue Red Alert on Floods
23:31

In Hubei province of China, close to 29,000 citizens were evacuated as a nearby reservoir dam is showing signs of deformation, and began to slide.

The incident is taking place amid continuing heavy rains in China. Near the middle reaches of the Yangtze River, which has been overflowing as well, the water level at the BaiYange Reservoir in HuangGang City of Hubei rose to dangerous levels, and the dam began to slide and to show signs of deformation, putting an area of over 620 square miles at risk. The reservoir was built in 1958, spans several villages, and can hold around 78 million cubic feet of water.

And in other parts of China, reservoirs impacted by floods are making the floodwaters worse. By July 5, around 1,094 reservoirs just in Hubei had exceeded their limits, and more than 11 counties and cities including Wuhan, the epicenter of the CCP Virus, the new coronavirus, issued red-code flood warnings. One other city, Xiantao, also evacuated its residents in the middle of the night.

Floods Destroy Ming Dynasty Bridge; CCP Officials Told to Prepare for Global Crisis
24:43

CCP officials are told to prepare for global crisis—including tensions with the United States, food shortages, currency wars, and others—and are being told to prepare “countermeasures”

Zhou Li, the former deputy minister of the CCP’s Central Liaison Department, tied to its political warfare programs, recently issued an article in China Social Science News stating “The Party Central Committee demands that our leading cadres at all levels ‘should adhere to the bottom line thinking and make a long-term ideological preparation and work preparation for responding to changes in the external environment."’

And a 400-year-old bridge was destroyed by the floods in Shanxi Town in Anhui, China, which had been built during the Ming Dynasty. The destruction of the second largest stone arch bridge in the region was one of the latest scenes in the ongoing floods in 26 provinces and cities in China. And in HuangShan, AnHui, JingdeZhen, ShangRao, Yichang, Changyang, and other parts of China the heavy rains continue to collapse roads and destroy homes.

Situation Worsens: 17.7 Million Impacted by China's Floods; Bubonic Plague Re-emerges in China
18:01

China now has cases of the Bubonic Plague, the Black Plague, which was recently confirmed in Inner Mongolia. This adds to the resurgence of the new coronavirus in Beijing and other parts of China, and to reports of a new type of swine flu that Chinese scientists say has “pandemic potential."

And floods in China are growing more serious, and are impacting at least 17.7 million people. So far, in the floods in 26 provinces and regions, there are high alerts on 309 rivers, and 45 of the rivers have exceeded their flood protections. Of them, 12 rivers have surpassed historical floods.

The disasters are ongoing. State-run news outlets Xinhua published a warning on July 6 of a megaflood in the lower and middle reaches of the Yangtze River. Mudslides caused by the heavy rains on July 2 in Zhangjiajie washed away homes and washed away a school with students. Local reports from CiLi County say that dozens of homes were destroyed and at least 10 people were missing, but details are still unconfirmed.

Floods, Earthquakes, and Mudslides Hit China; and Why Hong Kong Matters to the World
23:53

Floods and natural disasters continue in China. In Yunnan province, in Southwest China, waters surged overnight from the Baishui River, which made the flooding worse.

There were earthquakes in Sichuan province and Guizhou province. On July 2, a 3.2 magnitude earthquake in Sichuan hit Aba Prefecture, upstream of the Three Gorges Dam. Soon after, a 4.5 magnitude earthquake hit Guizhou. The earthquakes raised fears of potential landslides and overflow of the Three Gorges Dam. In Chongqing of Sichuan province and in Yunnan province, there were large landslides caused by the heavy rains.

And China recently passed its new National Security Laws that effectively end Hong Kong’s autonomy. We do a deep dive into what the law entails, and why this matters for the rest of the world.

Floods in China Reach Biblical Proportions; Why Would TikTok Spy On Americans
16:54

Rains have lasted over 30 days and are continuing. And many other disasters are hitting at once including tornadoes, hailstorms, torrents, mudslides, and earthquakes -- in addition to a possible new virus outbreak from the swine flu, and also expected locusts.

In Chongqing, videos show large-scale mudslides rushing towards highways, and residents were warned by officials they may be in danger of floodwaters if they live below the fourth floor in their buildings as water levels could allegedly reach over 600 feet. In Beijing, hailstorms continue. In Sichuan upstream of the Three Gorges Dam, a 4.5 magnitude earthquake hit on July 2. Flooding continues in 26 provinces of China, and there are increased warnings of a failure in the Three Gorges Dam.

And why would TikTok spy on Americans? We take an in-depth look at recent data suggesting TikTok was spying on user data, and look into the history of the company and its leadership.

China Censors Data On Dam, Amid Rising Floods; Xi’s Military Orders Suggest Breaks In the Party
25:53

The website of the Changjiang Water Resources Commission no longer shows data on inflow for the Three Gorges Dam or the Danjiangkou dam. Normally this data would be refreshed when the site is updated, and its disappearance is raising concerns that Chinese leadership is hiding the data.

The floods in China are continuing, and have reached 26 provinces, including cities. Wuhan is now flooded, and Shanghai, which is a major technology and business hub, may be next.

And in a move that's being interpreted as a possible sign of instability in the Chinese leadership, Xi Jinping stated at a recent Politburo meeting of top leaders that the Chinese military must be “absolutely loyal,” and ready to fight. This follows three recent documents published by the People’s Liberation Army, the Chinese military, about consolidation.

China Opened the Three Gorges Dam, Flooding Cities; Swine Flu 2.0
21:53

Chinese state media reported the floodgates were opened in order to free up storage capacity to meet possible floods in the near future, while a local official claims it was for “power generation”. Epoch Times had previously received leaked government documents showing that authorities opened the floodgates, as heavy rains had caused waters to rise above the flood threshold.

This followed reports of the CCP secretly releasing waters from the dam, which flooded the entire city of Yichang. Residents in the path of the flood were not alerted ahead of time, and many were killed, including by electrocution from not shutting off power ahead of time.

And China has announced a vaccine for the new coronavirus, after it skipped the final test phase, and will now begin testing it on Brazilians.

CCP Using Conflicts To Shift Domestic Problems; National Security Law Passed,HK in Crisis
22:53

During a recent border conflict, Chinese soldiers killed 20 Indian soldiers, and Chinese authorities have not been open about casualties on their end. The incident is speeding up India’s existing push to decouple from China. At the same time, China has been stirring up other conflicts such as with Taiwan and Japan, locally, and with many other countries through its policy of “wolf warrior diplomacy” around the world.

Yet, in all cases the heavy-handed approach of China seems to be having an opposite result, and many countries are talking about distancing further from China. So why would Chinese authorities push a more aggressive stance at this time? We look into this question.

And war correspondent Michael Yon, who covered the Hong Kong protests and was later forbidden from returning to report, speaks with Crossroads about the situation in Hong Kong with the new measures to extend Beijing rule.

Dam Break Deepens Worries at the Three Gorges Dam; CCP Hints at Prisoner Exchange
19:01

On May 1, 2020, a dam wall collapsed at the Sardoba reservoir in the region of Sirdaryo in Uzbekistan. It happened after five days of storms, and just three years after its construction had been finished under a $23 million contract with China.

The case has symbolic significance in China, where it’s facing floods from its heaviest rainfall in over 70 years, and where a flood alert was just raised near the Three Gorges Dam.

And China is hinting at a prisoner exchange with Canada, suggesting they could free two Canadians for the release of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou.

Concerns Over the Three Gorges Dam Grow, as China Begins Censoring News of the Floods
19:11

The Three Gorges Dam in China has become a center of attention, as waters rise and local authorities issue flood warnings nearby. Taiwan News reports that a prominent Chinese hydrologist, Wang Weiluo, is claiming the dam "could collapse at any moment." He pointed to existing concerns over the dam's design, construction, and process for inspections.

Chinese authorities, meanwhile, are declaring that information on the flood in Chongqing is "sensitive information," which subjects it to censorship. The floods havee already hit 26 provinces, required emergency rescue of over 213,000 people, and damaged over 171,000 homes. The situation may grow worse as the 980 reservoirs are impacted.

Did Xi Jinping Escape Beijing With Other Top CCP Leaders, as Infections Spread
17:55

Public reporting from within China shows some anomalies among top-level CCP officials, suggesting that many of them may have fled Beijing. This includes even Xi Jinping, head of the Chinese Communist Party. The Epoch Times has exclusive analysis, showing this case, and we’ll now go over it here.

On June 11, Beijing began to report new cases of the CCP Virus. After that, the epidemic intensified. Beijing did not dare to publicly announce the lockdown of the city, but has already implemented all lockdown measures in a disguised form.

Since the outbreak started in Wuhan, the CCP considered protecting Beijing its most important focus, since Beijing is the CCP’s center of power. If Beijing fails, the high-level officials may have to evacuate, leaving the power center empty, and the consequences would be unimaginable to them.

Xi Jinping May Flee Beijing; Trump Speaks Out As Statues Tearing Down
16:25

Top leaders of the Chinese Communist Party may be fleeing Beijing, and this may include Xi Jinping. We look at public reporting coming out of China, and several anomalies in reporting, as well as timings between their public appearances and shift to video conferences, suggest that the top seven members of the Politburo Standing Committee may have fled.

And when movements began under the Obama administration to tear down statues of Confederates, many conservatives, including Trump, were criticized for claiming the rioters would eventually target statues of American figures including the founding fathers. And the predictions are now proving accurate. Statues of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and others have been destroyed. Even statues of Mohandas Gandhi and Miguel de Cervantes, a Spanish writer and former slave, have been vandalized.

The movements we’re now watching sweep the United States to destroy history are not new, and neither are the narratives being used to excuse it. We’ll discuss the history of movements like this, and look at why extremists want to destroy statues, historical relics, and the cultures they represent.

The Virus Has Allegedly Mutated to Become More Contagious; A Look at The Players Behind the Protests
20:21

The CCP Virus has mutated, and the new strain now spreading in Beijing is allegedly more infectious and more deadly than the previous strain. This is according to data released by China's CDC, which posted three sets of virus sequences, all of which carry the mutation known as D614G. According to Caixin, previous research has shown the mutation could make the virus twice as contagious, and that it may make the virus more deadly as well.

Similar claims are being made by researchers at the Scripps Research Institute in Florida. CNN reported the researchers "believe they have shown that the new coronavirus has mutated in a way that makes it more easily infect human cells." Scripps Research virologist Hyeryun Choe said in a statement, "Viruses with this mutation were much more infectious than those without the mutation in the cell culture system we used."

A recent article from Trevor Loudon at The Epoch Times details how two far-left extremist organizations have been playing key roles in the protests and riots around the death of George Floyd. We take an in-depth look at these groups.

China Interfered In US Elections, Yet Contradicted Bolton’s Claims; Beijing Enters “Wartime State”
17:44

Former national security adviser John Bolton is claiming in an upcoming book that President Donald Trump asked Chinese leader Xi Jinping for help winning the 2020 election, and Bolton’s account is now being disputed by U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer who was at the meeting.

Bolton’s characterization of the meeting is unlikely, however, even based on public reporting. At the time, in 2018 and 2019, China was accused of trying to interfere in the 2020 elections by placing sanctions on US farmers to turn the American heartland against Trump’s harsh trade policies with China. We explain, based on public reporting and direct statements from the CCP, the full context of what took place.

And in China, heavy flooding in the South is raising concerns over the integrity of the Three Gorges Dam. It was widely reported in 2019 that the Three Gorges Dam appeared distorted, and in an “elastic state.” Satellite images appeared to show the dam bending. The CCP excused the rumors, and said the dam had moved a few millimeters from changes in temperature and water level.

China Tries Quelling Fears Over the Virus; Google Gets Warning Over Censorship
16:27

The Federalist, a right-leaning news website, was forced to remove its entire comment section after Google threatened to ban the platform from using its ad services. Google was allegedly pushed to ban advertisements for both The Federalist and liberatian news website ZeroHedge.

NBC News wrote a story on June 16 saying Google would demonetize both websites, after the NBC News “Verification Unit” informed Google about a British nonprofit, the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), tied to the British Labour Party, put the websites, and Breitbart on its “blacklist” for allegedly benign “racist Fake News.”

And Beijing is now partially locked down. Many people are not allowed to enter or leave the city, schools have been suspended, and many businesses and services have been closed. Many residents are attempting to flee the city before a full lockdown goes into place.

North Korea Blows Up Liaison Office With South Korea; Beijing Is Becoming the New Virus Hotbed
19:39

North Korea blew up an inter-Korean liaison office building just inside its borders, after Kim Jong Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, warned that Seoul would witness “a tragic scene of the useless North-South liaison office being completely collapsed.”

South Korea is warning the North it will "strongly respond" if the situation escalates. The destruction of the office may be a show of force by Kim's sister, Kim Yo Jong, and brings into further question how much power she now has over the communist regime.

And in China, Beijing is becoming the epicenter of a new outbreak of the new coronavirus. Beijing is now under partial lockdown, and restrictions on work and travel are now being rolled out.

Double Standards on Social Gatherings; Was WHO Complicit In Virus Coverup?
18:16

Local governments are being criticized for double standards on social distancing rules around the novel coronavirus. In New York City, city workers were filmed welding shut the gates to a playground, and many put the blame on Mayor Bill de Blasio for the move. Soon after, members of the local Jewish community were filmed cutting the gates to reopen the park.

Similar concerns of double-standards or select enforcement are growing across the country where restrictive measures on social distancing and closed businesses are being enforced, yet where local officials supported or encouraged the large-scale protests over the death of George Floyd.

And a new GOP report allegedly obtained by the National Review states the World Health Organization (WHO) was complicit in the Chinese government’s coverup of the COVID-19 coronavirus now spreading around the world.

54 Scientists Been Fired As Ties To China Lab; “Repressive Tolerance”by CHAZ Site
22:36

54 scientists have resigned or been fired through ongoing investigations being done by the National Institute of Health into ties to foreign governments that people who received its grants failed to disclose.

The cases are part of a broader push from the U.S. government to tackle issues of Chinese espionage in universities and research institutes. It runs alongside a similar investigation being done through the Department of Education, and is the context of the recent indictment of Dr. Charles Lieber, the former head of the Harvard chemistry department, who had alleged ties to the Chinese government’s “Thousand Talents Program.”

And the two pictures being shown of the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ) site in Seattle, of both peaceful protesters and of a violent radical mob, tie into a belief that animates many extremist socialist policies, known as “repressive tolerance.” The concept is used to justify violence under the banner of “peace,” and intolerance under the banner of “tolerance.”

Join host of Crossroads, Joshua Philipp, in a live discussion on the current situation in the CHAZ, and for a discussion about the relationships between anarchy and communism, how chaos operations work and why some movements advocate for chaos, and about the various reasoning and hypocrisy of big government getting behind a group that is acting in defiance to government and laws, and of big businesses supporting a group calling for an abolition of the capitalist system.

Trump Calls CHAZ “Domestic Terrorists”; China’s Propaganda and Censorship Exposed
15:34

President Donald Trump declared that terrorists have taken over part of Seattle with the takeover of part of Capitol Hill by protesters to create the “CHAZ” site, or “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.”

Trump said over Twitter that “Domestic terrorists have taken over Seattle,” and said if local government officials don’t take it back, then he will. The Washington Governor told Trump to “stay out of Washington's business,” and the Seattle Mayor came out in support of the protesters, calling their actions an act of “patriotism.” Meanwhile, videos and claims from the ground point to potential extortion of local businesses, and armed protesters creating justice through mob rule.

And tech companies Apple and Zoom are being criticized for folding to Chinese government censorship. Zoom is accused of shutting down accounts around the Tiananmen Square Massacre memorial, and of the Hong Kong protests. Apple is accused of removing a podcast app that could allegedly help Chinese people access uncensored information abroad.

A group of far-left extremists has taken over several blocks in Seattle, and has established an “autonomous zone” they claim is outside the control of the United States. Soon after it was established, a local rapper claimed control over it and established an internal security force.

The location is benignly referred to as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), and reports claim armed activists have been extorting businesses for money, stopping and frisking people entering the zone, and using mob justice to deal with internal crime.

And as cities across the United States begin to open, officials may face lawsuits if regulations went too far. Sen. Hawley is calling on Attorney General William bar to investigate whether state and local officials violated religious protections under the Constitution in their actions.

China Propaganda Outlet Paid Millions to US Media; Crossfire Hurricane Investigations Move Forward
14:29

China Daily, a state-run Chinese news outlet, released financial documents showing that it spent millions of dollars for paid content or inserts at major U.S. news outlets including the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post. The outlets have noted the content was labeled as “advertisement.”

The China Daily inserts typically run under “China Watch,” and in addition to being registered as a foreign agent under FARA in the United States, China Daily was listed by the U.S. government as a “Foreign Mission” of the Chinese government.

And the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia are now turning into investigations into the investigators themselves. Top officials who helped launch the investigation may now be called on to testify, and risk jail sentences if wrongdoing is found.

Exclusive Interview: KingFace On the “All Black Lives Matter” Movement
31:53

New York community leader KingFace is helping launch a new movement, “All Black Lives Matter,” to stand up against the murder of black Americans in all forms—including from gang violence.

He explains that solving the problem requires more than just responses after tragedies happen, and require programs such as mentorship of youth, helping solve issues of fatherlessness, and teaching kids how to succeed. KingFace believes that teaching victimhood is less valuable than teaching a mentality of self-motivation and success.

And Joe Biden has come out against the push to “defund the police,” alongside several other democrat leaders. The movement is supported by an estimated 16% of the Americans, mainly on the democrat side. With leaders now trying to distance from it, Biden and others may risk facturing their voting base.

Exclusive Infographic Shows How the WHO Colluded with the CCP, Misleading the World

Did the World Health Organization collude with China on the new coronavirus pandemic? An investigative infographic from The Epoch Times shows a timeline of how it colluded, including proof that the Chinese government knew about the severity of the outbreak and hid it from the public, and that the WHO continued to parrot its lines regardless.

It also shows how China violated international health regulations through its actions, and how the WHO facilitated in China’s coverup of the pandemic.

The findings are significant amid international calls from countries including Australia, the United States, and parts of Europe to investigate China and the WHO for misleading the world on crucial information about the virus.

Former Attorney General Claims FBI Lied On Trump-Russia; Videos Expose Extremists in the Riots

Undercover investigative outlet Project Veritas published videos from a journalist sent to infiltrate an Antifa branch in Rose City, Portland, which shows the extremist organization’s structured programs for recruitment and training. As the video was released, journalist Andy Ngo filed a lawsuit against the Rose City branch of Antifa and several individuals for $900,000 for attacks on him in June 2019.

Meanwhile, Attorney General William Barr claims the US government has evidence of Antifa and other groups hijacking the George Floyd protests. He stated, “We have evidence that Antifa and other similar extremist groups as well as actors of a variety of different political persuasions have been involved in instigating and participating in the violent activity.”

And former deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 3, where he explains how the FBI lied to him, which influenced his appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller for the FBI’s investigation of alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential elections

For the first time, Hong Kong is banning the annual memorial for the Tiananmen Square Massacre, commemorating the estimated 10,000 democracy protesters killed by the Chinese Communist Party on June 4, 1989. Local authorities have banned the gathering under the claim of social distancing with the COVID-19 coronavirus, yet Hong Kong residents are ignoring the ban and are joining the memorial event.

As Chinese authorities look to extend Mainland law into Hong Kong through the new “national security laws,” the UK government is considering creating a path to citizenship for close to three million Hong Kong residents who had British passports before the handover to China. The United States is now considering similar programs for Hong Kongers looking to escape.

And as protesters take to the streets across the United States, there is a growing concern it could lead to a second wave outbreak of the new coronavirus. Within two weeks to a month, the protests could show whether or not the lockdowns were necessary and effective to slow the spread of the virus.

NYC Mayor Under Fire for Rejecting National Guard; Religious Freedom EO Could be Major Blow to China
24:25

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is being criticized by Governor Andrew Cuomo for his refusal to have the National Guard deployed to the City. De Blasio said local police have the situation under control, yet soon after his statement the NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association issued a public letter to the NY Police Commissioner saying they do not have the situation under control, and that police officers are being attacked from all sides.

The letter calls into question whether the NYPD is capable of dealing with the situation, as de Blasio claimed. It states, “What this Department cannot do is stay the course: our efforts to take back the city from the lawless have thus far failed miserably.”

And President Donald Trump issued an executive order on religious freedom that could be a major blow to the Chinese government, where authorities have brutally persecuted religious groups including Tibetan Buddhists, Falun Gong practitioners, Muslim Uyghurs, and House Christians.

Trump Promises To Protect Country; US Riots' "Above and Below" Tactics
25:55

Multiple reports and videos claim that weapons caches and pallets of bricks are being found in hotspots for the riots over the death of George Floyd, raising belief that unnamed groups have been planning and coordinated violence and arson.

In New York City, the Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Counterterrorism said unnamed groups are apparently sending scouts, medics, and supplies of equipment to commit vandalism and violence. Similar claims are being made by authorities in Minneapolis, and suspicious pallets of bricks have been found in many.

And amid accusations that extremist groups are trying to subvert the otherwise peaceful protests to incite violence for their own gain, we look into the "above and below" tactic that subversive movements use to achieve political goals.

Is CCP Involved in the George Floyd Riots? Terror Designation May Go Beyond ANTIFA
14:22

The far-left extremist group Antifa will soon be designated a terrorist organization, according to President Donald Trump. Attorney General William Barr declared that the protests now spreading across the United States "are being hijacked by violent radical elements." He also stated, "The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly."

And questions are growing on which organizations are behind the riots. While Antifa is being called out directly for subverting the protests, other far-left organizations are playing key roles. Among them is Democratic Socialist of America, which has been actively participating in the riots, and which formed a national network to coordinate "antifascist" operations. Similar organizations are also involved.

Deep Dive into Trump’s Executive Order on Social Media
21:23

President Donald Trump issued an executive order to prevent online censorship, and heavily targeted at social media giants Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram. Trump accused some of the platforms of political censorship, possible election interference, and for allegedly accepting money from foreign governments such as China to publish disinformation.

The executive order will remove the liability shield given to social media platforms if they engage in censorship or any form of “political conduct.” It will also include federal reviews of spending on these platforms, federal investigations into various forms of political censorship, proposals for new state laws to protect online speech, the drafting of federal law that could cement the new protections on free speech online, and more.

In this episode of Crossroads, we’ll go over the full executive order and how it could change public discourse online.

Trump Signs Executive Order on Online Censorship; US to Take Strong Action Against China Over HK
26:07

Chinese authorities are increasing military spending by 6.6%, even as the economy and other sectors are struggling to get on track amid the coronavirus. The move demonstrates the regime’s priorities, and comes alongside its new form of aggressive and often hostile “Wolf Warrior diplomacy.”

Xi Jinping, head of the Chinese Communist Party, has asked the People’s Liberation Army to scale up battle preparations, PLA soldiers in Hong Kong have promised to “deter separatist forces and external intervention,” and satellite images show China’s military bases have training replicas of foreign landmarks including Taiwan’s presidential building.

The actions of Chinese authorities are raising a key question: is a war with China possible? We elaborate on this issue, and other topics, in this episode of Crossroads.

$70M Sent from China to US University; Cryptic Message in S. Korea Voting Machines
20:45

Chinese authorities are moving to create new “security laws” that will extend the mainland’s control over Hong Kong. Since this goes against the “one country, two systems” policy that previously allowed relative freedom, Hong Kongers have renewed protests against the influence of Mainland China.

Hong Kong police were caught on camera stealing from a local shop. Other videos showed them spraying journalists with a water cannon. Thousands of protesters had gathered, and were dispersed with tear gas and arrests.

And as the U.S. Department of Education continues its probe into China’s influence in American universities, a complaint has been filed by the National Legal and Policy center, calling for an investigation into the University of Pennsylvania’s alleged failure to disclose Chinese donations.

Sky Turns Black When CCP's Biggest Conference Begins; US Says NO to China Wanting Full Control of HK
15:47

The sky over Beijing turned pitch black during a large thunderstorm, as the Chinese Communist Party began its largest annual political conference. Many netizens posted photos and videos of the phenomena, noting it was unusual, and many took it as a “bad omen” for the Chinese leadership.

When the conference began, Xi Jinping and top officials around him entered the hall without facemasks. There has been ongoing debate on whether the event should be held in person, or as a teleconference, given the risks of infection from the new coronavirus.

Among the proposed policies the regime unveiled is a national security law in Hong Kong that would extend the mainland’s laws into Hong Kong—a move that would go against the “one country, two systems” agreement. U.S. Senators are working to introduce a bipartisan bill, however, that would sanction Chinese officials if they go through with it.

Wuhan Residents View Mandatory Virus Tests As the CCP Money Making Scheme; Second wave in Shanghai?
15:19

Chinese authorities have mandated that all 11 million residents in Wuhan, China, get tested for the new coronavirus. Yet, residents are now questioning whether the tests are part of a money-making scheme by local authorities. Tests available in hospitals allegedly cost around a third of the tests being used by the government, testing sites have seen workers not changing gloves between tests, and workers have been placing multiple testing swaps together in the same containers.

And a recent virus case in Shanghai has locals worried that a second wave outbreak is underway. Local authorities confirmed just three new infections on May 19, but one of the individuals diagnosed with the virus had spent days traveling by train and subway and going about the city.

This comes as Shulan City was recently placed under martial law, with over 1,103 residential buildings and 1,205 villages put on lockdown.

Frightened! CCP Arrests Another Journalist After Live Streaming What Life Was Like in Wuhan
14:16

Republican lawmakers have invoked the Global Magnitsky Act to call for sanctions against top Chinese officials on their handling of the new coronavirus. The letter was sent by Jim Banks, Dan Crenshaw, and Lance Gooden to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. It calls out the officials not just for their handling of the virus, but also for human rights abuses of Chinese ethnic minorities.

They state, “We write to you today regarding the Chinese Communist Party’s duplicitous, ineffective, and cruel response to the outbreak of COVID-19. We believe their actions violated the 2005 International Health Regulations, the human rights of their citizens, and basic principles of fairness and responsibility in international relations.”

And Chinese authorities have continued their coverup of the virus by arresting a fourth known citizen journalist amid the virus outbreak. The individual was allegedly detained after live streaming videos showing the situation in Wuhan during the height of the lockdown.

China escalates hostilities against US journalists; Poll Shows 40% Americans Won’t Buy Made-in-China
23:34

An editorial in China’s state-run Global Times says China is “countermeasures ready” for a “prolonged ‘war’” with the United States. This is in context of pending investigations into the origins of the new coronavirus, sharp verbal conflicts, sanctions, trade wars, and factories leaving China. The Chinese regime views these as elements of an unconventional war.

The “battle” is already being carried out. Just recently, China threatened retaliation over new U.S. restrictions on telecommunications company Huawei, and warned of new “countermeasures” for new U.S. restrictions on journalists at Chinese state media.

And there is contradictory reporting on the state of China’s economy. The New York Times is reporting that the virus is “seemingly tamed,” and with this the Chinese economy has begun to recover. Several other stories and factors dispute this claim, however.

Virus NOT From Animals in Wuhan Market; 62 Nations Call for Investigations
25:47

A scientific paper says the possibility that the new coronavirus leaked from a laboratory shouldn’t be written off. This was explained in a new study, authored by scientists from the Department of Zoology & Biodiversity Research Center at the University of British Columbia, the Fusion Genomics Corporation, and the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.

The study explains that the virus behind the current pandemic appears to have been “pre-adapted to human transmission” by the time it began spreading at the Wuhan seafood market. Given their findings, the researchers state, “Even the possibility that a non-genetically engineered precursor could have adapted to humans while being studied in a laboratory should be considered …”

And meanwhile, a resolution is being presented to the World Health Association by more than 62 signatory nations calling for a probe into the virus origin. The proposal was notably edited to remove any mention of China.

Wuhan Locks People in Homes With Metal Plates; China’s Military Hospital Closed Down
15:43

A second wave outbreak of the new coronavirus in China is now sweeping the county, and new lockdowns are being enforced in parts of Wuhan, Harbin, Heilongjiang, and elsewhere. In Wuhan’s Dongxihu district, where a residential community was recently locked down, videos emerged corroborating witness reports that metal plates are being used to seal entrances of buildings.

Locals in the residential community told The Epoch Times in interviews there are about 5,000 people and 1,000 homes in the community, as well as several factories and businesses.

And while Chinese authorities are requiring all 11 million people in Wuhan to be tested for the virus, videos showing medical workers not changing gloves between tests are raising concerns of unintended infections from the medical workers.

4 of 15 UN Agencies Led by Communist China; Twitter Hires Chinese AI Expert
21:24

China has gained significant influence within the United Nations, and Chinese law dictates that they remain loyal to Beijing in their service. To learn more about this we speak with Alex Newmann, an award-winning international journalist, educator, author, and consultant. Newmann serves as the CEO of Liberty Sentinel Media and writes for diverse publications in the United States and abroad.

And a report from a coalition of human rights groups, led by Amnesty International Canada, says that China is increasingly using “threats, bullying and harassment” to intimidate activists around democracy, civil rights, and those who speak out against human rights abuses of Uyghurs, Tibetans, and Falun Gong practitioners.

The report notes that Canada’s light approach to China may be emboldening Chinese state actors to carry out their bullying and intimidation.

Tanzania‘s Goat & Papaya Tested Positive! Do We Face Tyranny of Control?

The Intercept recently published a story titled “Under Cover of Mass Death, Andrew Cuomo Calls in the Billionaires to Build a High-Tech Dystopia.” The story outlines new government programs being created during the new coronavirus pandemic that include new forms of surveillance and new forms of technology for online schooling; and it captures a growing concern shown across the United States that expanding government powers may last beyond the current crisis.

To get a better understanding of this situation, we speak with Dustin Bass, co-host of The Sons of History and a contributing writer to The Epoch Times. He explains historical cases of crisis legislation, and shows how new powers created are rarely done away with completely once the incidents end.

Japan has teamed up with 400 companies to cut reliance on Chinese medical goods, African nations are criticizing China for discrimination against Africans, the United States is having a war of words with China over press freedom, and even Beijing officials are warning that once the pandemic ends China could be left out of the new global economic order.

And in Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus, a recent video shows individuals in full protective medical garb in front of a hotel loading patients into a transport vehicle. This happens as Chinese top leadership fired a Wuhan official after new virus cases emerged. Questions are now being raised about the true situation in Wuhan.

The Hong Kong protests are starting again, although social distancing laws are still in place. Authorities recently arrested close to 200 protesters, including a local official, who are continuing their protests against the encroachment of mainland China’s laws and influence.

And we speak with Chris Chappell, host of China Uncensored, about how the new coronavirus has impacted China’s global ambitions. We discuss the One Belt-One Road initiative, Chris’s experiences in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and various ways the regime is losing its holds on power while still posing a threat through institutional control.

Trump's new battle with China: CCP fights back on push for virus investigations
21:50

The world economy could be very different once the pandemic ends, and major shifts are already taking place. Japan has launched a $220 million subsidy program to move businesses out of China and into Southeast Asia, India is setting aside over 460,000 hectares of land and is looking to lure more than 1,000 US companies out of China, and other markets are moving away from China in similar ways.

As businesses move abroad, new jobs will be created in countries from India to the United States, and manufacturing will return to the world outside China. The change could lead to new economies growing, while the Chinese regime declines.

And as the United States and other nations continue to push for investigations into China for the coverup of the virus outbreak, and to search for the origin of the virus, the Chinese regime is pushing back with a large-scale disinformation campaign.

How the CCP Plays Media Games to Deceive the World
27:37

The Chinese regime has launched a new wave of disinformation, this time firing back against potential investigations into the origin of the virus by claiming the United States was warned, the CCP held off the virus, and by using hostile statements while also calling for civility.

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr published a Twitter thread debunking these new narratives step by step, and similar analysis has been published elsewhere. The developments suggest the Chinese regime’s disinformation narratives are losing steam.

And when the pandemic is over, the world may be a very different place, with online schooling and working from home being new norms; and as governments expand systems for social control and surveillance.

US taxpayer money went to Wuhan; China spy scandal making YALE and MIT on fire
30:25

A multimillion dollar Pentagon project is now under investigation for allegedly sending money to a lab in Wuhan, China. At the heart of the program is a New York-based company, EcoHealth Alliance, that has become caught in another controversial program shut down with the National Institute of Health, and was also working on coronavirus research programs with the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology and Chinese virus scientist Shi Zhengli.

The Wuhan Institute of Virology is now the target of international probes as a possible source of the new coronavirus in the current pandemic; and Dr. Shi has also become a central figure in the investigations.

And U.S. universities are also being investigated for ties to the Wuhan lab, Dr. Shi, and to other programs tied to China. Among these is the University of Texas, and reports say investigations into other universities are on the horizon.

Scientific data from China’s labs, published in western journals, shows evidence of a cover-up. We speak with Dr. Sean Lin, former lab director of the viral disease branch of Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, about his analysis of the scientific reports.

Dr. Lin shows through analysis that the timing on research claimed by Chinese scientists is impossible, and notes several anomalies in the research that could be followed by broader investigations. He cites a Nature report submitted on Jan. 20 and published on Feb. 3, and notes several other documents.

And an alleged Chinese report warning of a possible war has all the telltale signs of a disinformation campaign. We analyze this report and its information.

Pandemic May Last Two Years; China Destroyed Evidence On Virus Outbreak

An alleged intelligence report says that China deliberately suppressed or destroyed evidence of the virus outbreak, in an “assault on international transparency.” The report from Five Eyes was obtained by The Saturday Telegraph.

The claims were corroborated by Fox News, which cited an unnamed senior US official stating the document aligns with US intelligence that China knew the virus could spread between humans earlier than it claims, and that the virus spread more widely than it claimed in the first two weeks of the outbreak.

And a report from the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy says the new coronavirus outbreak “will likely last 18 to 24 months.”

Leaked Documents Show China Hid Info On Virus Human Transmission; Secret Social Monitoring Exposed

Leaked documents obtained by The Epoch Times show the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was aware the new coronavirus, the CCP Virus, was able to spread from human to human, yet it kept this information from the outside world for at least five days.

The regime officially confirmed human to human transmission on Jan. 5, yet the leaked documents from the regional health commission in northern China’s Inner Mongolia show the Chinese regime was already aware of this, and was already developing prevention measures.

And a story is now emerging around the head of Jaroslav Kubera, head of the Czech Senate. His wife recently discovered documents showing that shortly before his death in January, he had received threats from the Chinese regime.

CCP Launches Wolf Warrior Diplomacy; Calls Out Trump, Threaten Australia, Lies to the EU
21:12

The Chinese regime has called on its envoys to implement a new policy of “Wolf Warrior Diplomacy.” The policy carries with it an aggressive call to CCP diplomats around the world to strongly counter any criticisms against the regime, and to push the regime’s interests and narratives.

The policy may already be backfiring, however. In the EU, officials are noting that the regime’s efforts to pressure governments to follow the CCP’s narratives are showing that deals with the regime could come with an unseen cost. In Australia, after the CCP threatened financial consequences if the local government continues calling for investigations into China’s handling of the virus, the CCP’s once friendly facade has fallen off.

And in the United States, debates are now growing over online censorship and heavy-handed local politics used in the name of fighting against the CCP Virus.

What Can the World Do To Stand Up To the CCP? Curtis Ellis Says It’s Time to Boycott China
27:45

Curtis Ellis, a top Trump economic advisor and Policy Director with America First Policies, is calling for a boycott of the Chinese regime. He argues that given the CCP’s history of abuses, its forms of subversion against other nations, and its cover-up of the CCP Virus which has gone on to become a pandemic, everyone has the ability to stand up against it through a boycott.

In this episode of Crossroads we sit down with Ellis to discuss why he believes a boycott is necessary, and whether it is likely or not that current global lawsuits against the CCP can succeed, and why the calls for investigations into the regime and its handling of the CCP Virus are necessary.

And President Donald Trump has invoked the Defense Production Act to order meat processing plants to stay open. We explain the story behind the order.

How the CCP Lies Through Duplicity, Mirroring, and Denial Around the World
22:35

The chief epidemiologist at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention declared that China will always be open and transparent in reporting outbreaks of this virus. Around the same time this statement was released, the CCP was caught lying about pressuring German officials to issue positive statements on the Chinese regime, and after an EU report found the CCP had launched a comprehensive disinformation campaign.

We’ll explore how the Chinese regime uses a series of common methods in its programs to deceive the world, based around repeating lies, using duplicity so words don’t match actions, switching the blame to its accusers, and always denying guilt.

And with all the serious news constantly going around, we’ll take a step back today with advice from literature on coping with hardships. We’ll be looking at quotes from “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Victor E. Frankl, and “Meditations” by Marcus Aurelius.

China‘s Virus Propaganda Backfires; CCP Global Ambitions Take Hit; Q&A
38:30

The Chinese regime has launched a global campaign of disinformation, propaganda, diplomacy, and threats to dissuade both the international calls to investigate the origin of the CCP virus in China and the growing numbers of class action lawsuits.

In the EU, the European External Action Service wrote a report exposing the CCP’s disinformation efforts around the virus, and the Chinese regime lobbied to have the report censored. Three citizen journalists running the nCoVMemory Github page were arrested in China. These and several other efforts by the regime have been exposed to the public and are now backfiring on the Chinese Communist Party.

And while the CCP is being accused by nations including the United States, the UK, and India of leveraging the virus for business takeovers around the world, its operations are now taking a hit from the virus.

Calls for lawsuits and investigations into the Chinese regime’s role in the spread of the CCP Virus are gaining global momentum. Nations including the United States, Australia, the UK, and others are calling for investigations; and lawsuits are following close behind.

Amidst this, the Chinese regime is teasing the lawsuits as “impossible to win” and is walking back some of its key narratives. I declared that a class action lawsuit in Missouri is “ridiculous,” and a regime spokesman is now claiming China has no concept of wet markets.

And after the United States put a whole on funding to the World Health Organization, the Chinese regime and a “One World” fundraiser have aimed to restore its finances.

Another Wuhan? CCP Virus (Coronavirus) Outbreak in Harbin; China Deploys Armed Police to Russian Border
16:39

The Chinese regime has deployed additional police forces, border guards, and the People’s Armed Police paramilitary to the China-Russia border in Heilongjiang Province. This comes as the Russian government has begun expatriating Chinese living in Russia, and as the Chinese regime refuses to allow them to return.

Leaked documents from Harbin in China’s Heilongjiang Province also show the number of virus patients there may be 200 times the official data. This follows leaked documents from provincial authorities saying the situation in Harbin is “out of control.”

And nations around the world are rallying against the Chinese regime’s programs for overseas influence, and many are now calling for investigations into the CCP and its handling of the virus.

Exclusive: Leaked CCP Document Says Virus In Harbin ‘Out of Control’; Patients Kicked Out of Hospital
21:58

A leaked document obtained by The Epoch Times shows that the situation in China’s Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, is now “out of control.” The four-page warning letter from provincial authorities in China accuses the local government in Harbin for its handling of the virus, and notes outbreaks have spread through villages and cases are now at uncontrolled levels.

The leaked document gives additional insights into the CCP’s ongoing cover-up of the real situation in China as it faces the virus outbreak—and comes at an important time when the CCP is planning to loosen restrictions on international travel. Experts warn that a “second wave” infection in China is on the horizon, and already the regime has begun locking down residential compounds and restoring restrictions soon after attempting to end quarantines.

And in Changsha City, Hunan Province, local officials have released a new phone app that allows people to report other people for violating requirements on face masks and other crimes. The app gives people points and prizes for reporting others, and some elderly residents are saying it reminds them of the tyranny they faced under the CCP’s Cultural Revolution.

Recent Arrest Signals Infighting in China’s Leadership; Nations Rally Against CCP Economic War
23:08

A high level security official in China was dismissed from his position and is being probed for “serious violations of discipline and law.” The individual is Sun Lijun, who was the director of the first bureau of the Ministry of Public Security’s 26th Bureau, and was deputy director of the 610 Office—comparable to the “Chinese Gestapo.”

Inside sources told The Epoch Times that actions against Sun Lijun are not about the virus or about Hong Kong, where Sun Lijun was in charge of security during the recent protests. Instead, they claim his arrest ties to rumors of coups in China. His removal and corruption probe are being interpreted as signs of high-level infighting within the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

And nations are joining to call out a new push from the CCP to capitalize on the pandemic to wage economic warfare. These concerns have now been echoed by NATO, the United States, the UK, India, and others.

Lockdowns Return to China in Second Wave; China’s Supplies to Drug Cartels Cut off by Virus
32:16

Drug cartels in Latin America have seen their operations crippled by the new coronavirus, the CCP Virus. Reports say that their ability to produce drugs have been impacted, given that many of the synthetic drugs such as fentanyl come from China, and many of the precursor chemicals for drugs like methamphetamine also come from China. The case brings the Chinese regime’s programs for “drug warfare” into the spotlight.

As warned, the “second wave” of infections may have arrived in China. The CCP has renewed lockdowns in Henan Province and Harbin Province, and there are reports of people collapsing in the streets similar to what was seen in Wuhan, which was the epicenter of the virus.

And the UK has joined other nations including the United States to investigate whether the CCP Virus originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Who Fact Checks the 'Fact Checkers' On the Origin of the CCP Virus (Coronavirus)?
25:27

The Epoch Times published an investigative documentary looking into the origins of the new coronavirus, the CCP Virus, on April 7. The video rapidly went viral on multiple platforms, with more than 70 million views. Then Facebook flagged the video as “False,” and sent alerts to people who shared the video, alleging they had shared false information.

After reviewing the claims, The Epoch Times responded, and noted in an open letter that the Facebook fact check contained a factual error, a conflict of interest, and had other issues that call into question whether the “False” label was warranted.

And the World Health Organization (WHO) has been deeply involved in an information campaign against the so-called “infodemic” of information about the virus, and has worked closely with social networks to contest what it deems as “misinformation.” This comes as the WHO is being globally criticized for spreading the Chinese regime’s false information on the virus.

2.9 Million CCP Virus (coronavirus) Cases In China?UK Warns China Exploiting the Crisis
17:02

A report from AEI placed the estimated virus cases in China at 2.9 million, which far exceeds claims from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The report describes the criteria used to arrive at the assessment, and notes it rounds down on each point—meaning the likely cases could still be higher.

The CCP has also been taking advantage of the pandemic for “mask diplomacy,” information campaigns, and to launch business takeovers as markets struggle. A senior British lawmaker has called out the regime for its actions, and warns the government has been seeing actions by the CCP and state-owned companies to exploit global conditions caused by the virus.

And The Epoch Times interviewed the mother in a family of four who left Wuhan for the United States in February, and told her account of the situation on the ground—claiming the situation was much worse than the world was being told.

State Department Cables from 2018 are also stating that there were security issues at the P4 virus lab in Wuhan, China, adding to concerns that a safety breach at the laboratory may have led to the current pandemic.

And a recent top-level resignation at Huawei may point to a larger shakeup in the Chinese regime’s core high-tech industry.

China Quietly Puts 2nd Lockdowns on Wuhan Residential Compounds as CCP Virus Continues to Spread
20:13

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) announced to the world it would end its lockdown of Wuhan, the epicenter of the new coronavirus, on April 8. Yet, when the date arrived, the regime only partially reopened the city. Locals are now saying that the “opening up” of Wuhan has only applied to people traveling for work, and that entire residential compounds are being locked down with each new case of infection.

Human rights abuses in China have also continued despite the spread of the coronavirus, the CCP Virus. In March, alone, there were 747 recorded cases where practitioners of the spiritual practice Falun Gong were abducted or harassed by CCP authorities. The Epoch Times also received new leaked documents on the 610 Office, an extrajudicial police force compared to the “Gestapo,” that show its agents are able to override local governments and even engaged in “diplomatic affairs” to export the regime’s human rights abuses.

And the Chinese regime was exposed in the United States and in Germany for attempting to have government officials promote its propaganda on its virus response. Wisconsin Senate President Roger Smith exposed these efforts by publicly releasing documents sent to him by the Chinese consulate in Chicago, and issued a proclamation condemning the CCP’s human rights abuses and cover-up of the virus. Similar cases were exposed in Germany.

China Restricts Research On Virus Origins; China is being impacted by the “B” strain of CCP Virus
30:32

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has placed restrictions on academic research into the origins of the new coronavirus, the CCP Virus. Two alerts were posted on the websites of Chinese universities explaining academic papers discussing the origins of the virus must be reviewed and approved by regime authorities. The alerts have since been erased, but archives are still available.

Reports now claim that there are three known strains of the CCP Virus now spreading around the world: described as “A, B, and C” strains, based on their generation of mutation. China is mainly being impacted by the “B” strain of the virus, although it also has the “A” strain. The United States, meanwhile, is mainly being impacted by the “B” strain.

And in Brazil, a bizarre arrest of an individual tied to the CCP was found to be hoarding stolen medical supplies. He was also found using slave labor, and a weapons cache was discovered by police.

The 610 Office has been compared to the Gestapo of the Nazi regime, and is an extrajudicial police force of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) assigned to carry about human rights abuses against Falun Gong practitioners.

Africans in China, meanwhile, are facing a potential humanitarian crisis. Many African students and business owners are now living on the streets in China after being evicted from their homes due to rumors that the virus was spreading through Africans.

And the United States is allegedly not slowing on programs through the Department of Justice directed at prosecuting cases tied to the CCP’s programs of economic theft.

Escape from Wuhan: 55,000 People Flee; Second Wave Of Outbreaks?
24:35

The Chinese regime reopened Wuhan, the epicenter of the new coronavirus, on April 8, and many locals took the opportunity to flee the city, out of fears that a second lockdown would be put in place. Long lines of vehicles were seen at city exits, and officials allowed close to 55,000 people to leave. Many traveled to Shanghai and Guangdong, where locals said in interviews that they too fear a new wave of virus infections.

Meanwhile, many parts of China remained closed. In what may point to a humanitarian crisis, hospitals were emptied to follow the narrative of the regime’s victory over the virus, and reports say even critically ill patients were sent home; religious sites in Beijing remain closed; the China-Russia border was closed and over 300 Chinese living in Russia were allegedly repatriated and deported.

In other news, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is continuing hostile activities to leverage the virus outbreak to its advantage. It sent out an open letter to 230 global far-left political parties calling for “coordinated policies” and “mobilization of resources and forces globally.” And the Justice Department is continuing an aggressive push to root out CCP efforts of intellectual property theft in the United States.

Ending lockdowns in Wuhan? The CCP makes profits from the coronavirus pandemic
26:51

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) announced it would end the lockdown of Wuhan, the epicenter of the new coronavirus, the CCP virus, on April 8. Now that the date has arrived, however, the regime is now slowing its initial plans. Transportation is still restricted, and strict controls on residential compounds are still in place.

Various reports from China also show that locals in other provinces are worried about what the opening of Wuhan means for their own safety. This brings into question the legitimacy of the CCP’s claims that the virus has been ending in China.

And in other news, Brazilian Minister of Education Abraham Weintraub has openly criticized the Chinese regime for using medical equipment makers to profit from the pandemic, and called out the regime for its alleged global ambitions to capitalize on the outbreak. He joins other prominent international voices now calling out the CCP for its actions during the outbreak, including members of the Iranian government.
