GOP Bill Calls for CCP-Infiltrated Colleges to Fess Up

We’ve known for years that our university students are being indoctrinated with anti-American propaganda. Lesser understood is how entrenched the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is in the grand scheme. Thanks to some bold actions by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), lawmakers have just introduced a bill that would force transparency requirements on colleges who have financial ties to China to continue being part of the Student and Exchange Visitor Program. It’s about time.

Since 2006, according to the Epoch Times, the Chinese regime has been pouring hundreds of millions of dollars to about 100 U.S. universities through a center called “Confucius Institutes.”

In the “Prepared Floor Remarks” delivered by Grassley on May 10th, a letter he sent on February 11th to the Biden Administration questioning its “withdrawal of what’s been called the Confucius Rule” has gone unanswered. “That rule was a proposed Trump administration rule that would’ve required educational institutions to disclose their financial connections to the communist Chinese government, including its Confucius Institutes.” 

In his remarks, Grassley said the following: “One member of the communist regime said: ‘The Confucius Institute is an appealing brand for expanding our culture abroad. It has made an important contribution toward improving our soft power. The ‘Confucius’ brand has a natural attractiveness. Using the excuse of teaching Chinese language, everything looks reasonable and logical.’”

Hence the premise of Bill S.1369 is “[T]o require United States educational institutions to include information regarding financial transactions with the Government of the People’s Republic of China or its affiliates in any petition for certification or recertification with the Student and Exchange Visitor Program.” Good God, how slow the wheels of Congress grind. And, does the bill even go far enough?

Per the National Association of Scholars (NAS), in an article entitled, “China’s Confucius Institutes Might Be Closing, But They Succeeded,” published on March 31st of this year, many colleges intertwined with the Institutes have already closed them or are in the process of doing so. And, it wasn’t much thanks to political pressure.

The NAS says that the name “Confucius Institutes” has become toxic due mainly to targeting by local activists of “Tibetan, Taiwanese, Hongkonger, Uyghur, and Chinese” descent. But, don’t even think this has slowed the CCP down. Our institutes of higher learning are still in the CCP’s greedy sights. Rather, a rebranding is taking place across the board that should wake up every American who slept through the first indoctrination phase. Especially because it’s aimed at our younger populations now, as well, and moving at record speed.

“Already, Asia Society, a private nonprofit that cosponsors a K-12 version of Confucius Institutes, has renamed its program the ‘Chinese Language Partner Network,” according to NAS. And, “Colleges and universities, too, are busily ‘closing’ their Confucius Institutes, only to replace them with other, substantially similar, forms of partnership with the Chinese government.” 

The Asia Society was “established with the support of an Expert Advisory Committee,” according to The National Pulse in mid-2020. “Members of this committee include CCP officials from the Chinese Embassy in Washington D.C. and the Chinese Consulate General in New York. High-ranking officials at Chinese universities with track records of cyber-espionage and intellectual property theft such as East China Normal University, Renmin University, and Wuhan University are also advising the program” aided by US government officials within the Departments of State and Education. 

The National Pulse also “exposed how Confucius Institutes had permeated a taxpayer-funded Utah Public School, Cascade Elementary. There, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) funded initiative led to state military parades airing in classrooms with teacher Zheng Yamin vowing to spread “Chinese morality and values.” Are you paying attention?

Fortunately, we have groups like NAS doing some heavy lifting. They say that some universities are simply “establishing new partnerships with the same Chinese universities that were their partners in hosting Confucius Institutes.” They’ve also been “pursuing an in-depth research project called ‘When Confucius Institutes Close’ to document just how widespread this closure-in-name-only trend is.” Their list of suspicious CCP-college partnerships is updated periodically and should be on the laptops of every lawmaker in Congress.

Alinsky Tactic #3, “whenever possible, go outside the experience of your enemy,” is meant to create confusion and chaos. Shifting the focus by rebranding is an oft-used method by the left that fits their end goal perfectly. It’s a tactic to keep Americans off-guard constantly and directed away from the march to full-blown Communism.

Does Grassley’s bill go far enough? Not if you consider the outcome from his years’ long investigation of Fast and Furious, the gun-running operation put in place by then-President Obama’s DOJ in an effort to water down our 2nd Amendment. Other than a few minor government players getting shifted from one agency to another, very little came of the Senator’s efforts.

In reading the two-page bill in its entirety, it’s apparent that the focus is on institutions of higher learning and meant to close a few loopholes regarding financial paper trails. Seriously? Forgive my sarcasm, but since when does a two-page document take three months to deliver?

While it is unquestionably a must-pass piece of legislation, our lawmakers are, as usual, way behind the eight-ball.

While we dicker with shiny objects once again, the CCP is a generation ahead. Of course, it’s essential to stop the bleeding, indoctrination, and theft at our institutes of higher learning. That’s a given and long overdue. The real question now ought to be: who’s watching the children?

Are Businesses Shrugging a New Economic Virus?

Are Businesses Shrugging a New Economic Virus?

Maybe Walgreens is the first outbreak of a new economic virus: businesses shrugging. Ayn Rand, the author of Atlas Shrugged, compared businessmen and entrepreneurs to the mythic Greek god Atlas who held the world on his shoulders. When the voters and government put too big a burden on the shoulders of businesses and entrepreneurs, her advice was “Shrug.”

In addition to supporting Palestinian Hamas, Lebanese Hezbollah, and other Middle East terrorist groups, Iran is also known to have been providing financing for North Korea’s nuclear military program in return for missile technology over at least the past two decades.

Chasms of Distrust, Post COVID

When COVID-19 sent everyone into their hovels, in the panic that followed, our country went into two lockdowns, one physical and one mental. As we begin to emerge from hibernation, two cultures with very divergent values are beginning to reveal themselves. If I had told you what we are living today would be the Summer of ’21 two years ago, you’d have had me committed…

The War on Ending Poverty

The War on Ending Poverty

Unfortunately, the welfare programs created under the War on Poverty prevent those on welfare from working: if someone gets a job, their welfare is taken away. Additionally, welfare is only given to single-parent households, which has incentivized fathers to leave the home. For African Americans, this effect has been particularly devastating – before the War on Poverty, less than 30% of African American children were raised in single-parent households, and now more than 70% are…

Hamas – Israel Conflict Explained in One Picture

One thing is a stark reality, Hamas, Hezbollah, and Muslims have mastered the art of propaganda and deception to levels, so far exceeding those of Goebbels and Pravda; they put them to shame. Regrettably, they have achieved this mastery with the complicit and willing help of the Western media. Here is a must-watch video articulating the Hamas-Israel war with a single picture, one that is worth 100,000 words…

Hamas: “Not a Ceasefire, Just a Hudna”

This war is far from over, and the hudna, now in place, is temporary. Hamas has been given yet another opportunity to “build back better,” and the Biden Administration has promised to help – with billions of dollars of American taxpayer money. This is a story that will continue to repeat itself for decades until the West finally understands that Hamas does not want peace, and will continue to strike, be struck, then rebuild endlessly with other people’s money in order to follow their evil and fruitless dream of…

H.R.1 Election Integrity Act is a Wolf in Wolf’s Clothing

H.R.1 Election Integrity Act is a Wolf in Wolf’s Clothing

The Biden administration makes no secret of its effort to turn America into a one-party state–their party, of course. They apparently envy Russia and China and hope to one day make the U.S. a communist nation where only the richest, most powerful people rule. The money behind the Democrats 2020 electoral success and the fraud they managed to pull off is supported by the same autocrats who now limit your free speech, the people behind Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, the Gates Foundation, and Google…

Biden’s Destructive Policies Are Just Starting

Biden’s Destructive Policies Are Just Starting

Trump had dialogues, and Xi listened. So did Kim Jong-un of North Korea. Now, nobody listens because China has Biden’s number and sees him as incompetent as his policies are driving America into a ditch. Biden is beholden to China. Even Israel’s government won’t listen to Biden’s advice that will surely destroy them. Clearly, that speaks to how other world leaders consider Joe Biden’s leadership…

Is Coca-Cola Destroying the Planet?

In 2020, the company producing Coca-Cola was hard at work producing CO2 during the pandemic, adding 5.4 MILLION metric tons to our beloved planet’s atmosphere. Just when you thought the damage to the planet from Coca-Cola could not get any worse, the management of the company has worked hard not to let you down. In addition to all that CO2, Coca-Cola is one of the largest users of aluminum cans in the world. 300,000 tons of…
