The Enemy is Inside the Gates
"Secretary of State Michael Pompeo warned lawmakers that the threat from the Chinese Communist Party is "inside the gates" during a meeting with House Republican lawmakers on Friday."
"Pompeo told members of the conservative Republican Study Committee that as a former lawmaker, he is aware of the threat posed by China but that he did not appreciate "the scope and the scale and the nature" of how close the threat is until he became Central Intelligence Agency director.
""This fight is inside the gates today … Containing where they are today leaves them in our institutions of higher learning. It leaves them in our high schools; it leaves them in our PTA groups. It leaves them inside our city councils and our state legislatures all across America. This is a deep effort that has been going on for 50 years. Republicans and Democrats alike refuse to deal with it, and we started to and did," he said.
""We not only got it right, and frankly, I think there is some bipartisan basis, I hope, that we can continue to get this right," he added.
"He noted that the Trump administration worked successfully to build an "enormous coalition" with the Indians, Australians, Japanese, the South Koreans, and in some parts of Europe to counter China. He said 120 international telecommunications companies have now forsworn any Chinese technology in their system."
Kristina Wong - Breitbart
To understand the danger of the Chinese Communist Party we need to look at their own rhetoric. We have to know and understand that the CCP does not believe their own rhetoric, but they want us to believe it. Ask yourself if the Uyghur women really feel "emancipated" by the tyranny of forced abortions, concentration camps and reeducation.
Make no mistake, the Chinese Communist Party is the enemy of freedom worldwide and therefore is the enemy of the United States, perhaps more so than any other nation.
"Venezuela used to be a country where women thrived, but today the Cuban-supported Maduro regime has impoverished its people and decimated its democratic institutions. Millions of women have been forced to flee the country and become refugees in order to feed their families. The destructive influence of the Cuban regime and their Venezuelan partners have sown chaos and instability across the region, destroying billions of dollars in productive capacity and damaging a generation.
"The Iranian regime likewise has been a destructive force for women, not only at home but abroad. In the past 25 years, under the mullah's theocratic rule, women's rights have gone backwards, and women face brutal violence for removing their headscarves or otherwise demanding fundamental freedoms. The Iranian regime is not satisfied with terrorizing its own population, however, and has contributed to the repression of women across the region. Where you see women suffering from conflict, violence, and abuse – especially in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and Yemen — the Iranian regime is the hidden hand constructing their misery.
"But the worst violator of all, in both scope and scale, is the host of the conference we commemorate today. Since 1995, the Chinese Communist Party has been responsible for the murder of millions of baby girls through brutal population controls on an industrial scale, unfortunately with support from UN agencies. Today the CCP is attacking ethnic Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities by turning these same population controls on these vulnerable minorities, subjecting women to forced sterilization, forced abortion, and forced birth control. This is in addition to the mass detention and intrusive surveillance system the CCP has put in place to Sinicize and control every aspect of Uyghur life. We invite you to visit www.state.gov/CCPAbuses for more information on these horrific abuses and we call on the UN to stop ignoring and enabling these atrocities.
"We cannot wait another 25 years to address these grave threats to the fundamental freedoms and human rights of women, and of all people. Thank you."
What's Happening in Xinjiang?
"The Chinese Communist Party is waging a targeted campaign against Uyghur women, men, and children, and members of other Turkic Muslim minority groups in Xinjiang, China. Documented human rights abuses include coercive population control methods, forced labor, arbitrary detention in internment camps, torture, physical and sexual abuse, mass surveillance, family separation, and repression of cultural and religious expression.
"In recent years, these egregious abuses have increased through government policies under the pretext and justification of fighting the "three evils" of "ethnic separatism, religious extremism, and violent terrorism."
"The U.S. Department of State, scholars, human rights organizations, journalists, think tanks, and survivors of the Xinjiang camps themselves have provided ample information substantiating these abuses including:
- Coercive population control through forced abortion, forced sterilization, and involuntary implantation of birth control;
- The detention of more than one million Uyghurs, ethnic Kazakhs, ethnic Kyrgyz, and members of other Muslim minority groups in internment camps;
- Forced labor in facilities nearby or affiliated with the internment camps;
- The destruction and closure of mosques and other religious sites, prevention of youths from participating in religious activities, forced political indoctrination or "re-education".
Forced Population Control
"The CCP is perpetrating a sustained campaign of forced sterilization, forced abortion, and involuntary implantation of birth control. Recent, documented evidence of these practices in Xinjiang is consistent with decades of CCP practices that demonstrate an utter disregard for the sanctity of human life and basic human dignity. We call on the Chinese Communist Party to immediately end these horrific practices and ask all nations to join the United States in demanding an end to these dehumanizing abuses.
"Since 2017, the CCP has ramped up its campaign of brutal repression of Uyghurs and members of other Muslim minority groups through far-reaching and arbitrary detention and forced labor. In some cases, authorities have detained members of these groups based on spurious "birth policy violations." The CCP's use of forced labor to target members of ethnic and religious minority communities is not confined to the Xinjiang region, and is increasingly taking place throughout China through the CCP government-facilitated arrangements with private sector manufacturers. The government expanded this campaign through the transfer of more than 80,000 detainees into forced labor in as many as 19 other provinces during the 2019 reporting period, according to NGO estimates and media reports. The U.S. Department of State, along with the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a business advisory to caution businesses about the risks of supply chain links to entities that engage in human rights abuses, including forced labor, in Xinjiang and elsewhere in China.
Violations of Religious Freedom
"The CCP is among the worst violators of religious freedom in the world and it continues to show blatant disregard for religious freedom and exercises extreme hostility to members of all religious faiths, including Protestants, Catholics, Tibetan Buddhists, Uyghur Muslims, and Falun Gong. The CCP's campaign of repression against Uyghur Muslims and members of other minority groups in Xinjiang continues to escalate. More than one million Uyghurs, ethnic Kazakhs, and members of other minority Muslim groups have been arbitrarily detained in internment camps since April 2017. In practice, the CCP targets everyday expression of Islamic belief such as owning a Quran, praying, avoiding alcohol or tobacco, fasting during Ramadan, as well as secular aspects of non-Chinese culture such as Uyghur language and Uyghur music."
The business advisory issued by the U.S. Department of State was specifically given to advise businesses doing business with entities inside China, that they must be vigilant to ensure that their business does not knowingly or unknowingly contribute materially or substantively to the continued human rights abuses and tyranny that the CCP commits against its own people.
"The U.S. Department of State, along with the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a business advisory to caution businesses about the risks of supply chain links to entities that engage in human rights abuses, including forced labor, in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (Xinjiang) and elsewhere in China.
"The People's Republic of China (P.R.C.) government continues to carry out a campaign of repression in Xinjiang, targeting Uyghurs, ethnic Kazakhs, ethnic Kyrgyz, and members of other Muslim minority groups.
"The advisory highlights the risks for businesses with supply chain links to entities complicit in forced labor and other human rights abuses in Xinjiang and throughout China. The three primary types of supply chain exposure to entities engaged in human rights abuses discussed in this advisory are:
- Assisting in developing surveillance tools for the P.R.C. government in Xinjiang;
- Relying on labor or goods sourced in Xinjiang, or from factories elsewhere in China implicated in the forced labor of individuals from Xinjiang in their supply chains, given the prevalence of forced labor and other labor abuses in the region; and
- Aiding in the construction of internment facilities used to detain Uyghurs and members of other Muslim minority groups, and/or in the construction of manufacturing facilities that are in close proximity to camps operated by businesses accepting subsidies from the P.R.C. government to subject minority groups to forced labor.
"Businesses with potential exposure in their supply chain to entities that engage in human rights abuses in Xinjiang or to facilities outside Xinjiang that use forced labor from Xinjiang in the manufacture of goods intended for domestic and international distribution should be aware of the reputational, economic, and legal risks of involvement with such entities.
"In order to mitigate reputational and other risks, businesses should apply appropriate industry due diligence policies and procedures."
