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?

Ahmadinejad Against the Ayatollah Regime Should Not Be Ignored

Ahmadinejad’s outbursts against the regime should not be ignored by the West. On the contrary, his opposition to the regime should be used as a perfect reason to bolster all Iranian counter-revolutionary factions to help bring forth the fall of the Ayatollahs’ terrorist Theocratic Regime at the earliest possible time, to save the Middle East and the world from a possible Nuclear War…

State Republican Election Directors in Bed with Socialists

The big question arising from these strange bedfellows is not whether leftist groups are solidly embedded into critical election policymaking organizations. That’s a fact. Rather, it is; why are Republicans playing ball at all? If the election of 2020 is not straightened out before 2022, the end result will be no different. We’ll be spending through 2024 chasing our tails…

American Patriots are the Majority; It’s Time to Start Acting Like It

“If you don’t get involved in politics, you will be governed by your inferiors,” Plato. Joe Biden and the Biden Cabal will make sure that happens. Teachers will no longer be the best ever. The Communist National Education Association will force Critical Race Theory on schools through GRANTS. Teachers are making it happen by their compliance. Parents, get your kids out of Public School…

A Novel of Truth Behind Climate Change

We are watching two sides of a chess game as the evil puppeteers pull ever more strings to disrupt all efforts to expose what has been more than two decades of a hoax that has placed vast sums of money into the hands of an army of leftist crony capitalists. Sally Fernandez has hit upon a way to communicate with a much wider audience demographic on the anthropogenic global warming issue…

Exposing the Cracks in Critical Race Theory

Parents across the nation are banding together to confront School Boards and Superintendents about Critical Race Theory. Parents are increasingly aware that this twisted ideology has no place being taught in American schools. The very thought that White children would be told they’re racists and Black children told they’re victims of White people is not only sick but…

Hate America, Hate Family, Hate God is the Message

In reality, these communists have no respect for minorities as they believe minorities are always victims of the whites. Their solution: You are born that way, so whites get on their knees and beg for forgiveness, while victimized minorities should step on them. According to CRT, White people have slanted all opportunities in their direction while victimization goes to the minority…

Biden’s Trajectory Is On Track to Eclipse Carter’s Failed Legacy

As The Washington Post, certainly no right-wing rag reported in May: “Widespread shortages are driving prices higher for everyday items, as an uneven reopening leaves Americans facing the unfamiliar risk of inflation.” Jimmy Carter and Joe Biden both inherited economies that were the envy of the world. Carter’s presidency ended with a term that originated the phrase “stagflation”…

American Military Aid and Return on Investment to Israel

The questions facing the United States in its relationship with Israel should not be based only on finance. There are more important demands to consider, such as dealing with values, interests, scientific and military technologies, counter-terrorism, and international relations. The Democrat party has devolved into a sewer of leftist, Islamist, unruly, unpatriotic, anti-White, anti-American, self-loathing party members…

Single-Family Zoning Isn’t Equitable Now Either

There’s a pattern here . . . In each case, — housing and education — the plan is the same: use federal grants to hook states and localities into conditions that will effectively override their authority. This time around let’s rebrand the Democrat “Infrastructure Bill” as the “Anti-Suburban Zoning Bill” that it really is…
