China Bans U.S. Journalists to Retaliate Against Trump’s Crackdown on Chinese State-Run Media

This is what a real war on the free press looks like.

China is banning U.S. Nationals who have worked as journalists with the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, New York Times and whose credentials were set to expire in 2020, in a retaliatory move against the Trump administration. They will not be allowed to report in the People’s Republic of China, which includes Hong Kong and Macao.

The State Department announced last month that Chinese media sources including Xinhua News Agency, China Daily Distribution Corp., China Radio International, Hai Tian Development USA, and China Global Television Network would be sanctioned.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo mentioned that the outlets are “clearly controlled by the [Chinese Communist Party], and we are simply recognizing that fact.” Those entities are now considered to be “foreign missions,” meaning they will be treated by the U.S. as arms of the Chinese government rather than legitimate media sources.

“We are determined to treat China as it is, not as what we want it to be. In China, all media works for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), as General Secretary Xi Jinping has explicitly stated,” Pompeo told Axios after the decision was made in February.

This is not the first level of retaliation that has been issued by China in recent weeks. They booted three Wall Street Journal journalists based out of Beijing out of their country because of an article published in the paper titled, “China Is The Real Sick Man Of Asia.”

In addition, the coronavirus pandemic that has emanated out of China and has proliferated due to Chinese brutality and incompetence has further strained relations with the U.S. President Trump has tied the virus directly to China, which has angered the authoritarian communist government.

“Some politicians in the U.S. associated the coronavirus with China, and smeared China. China expresses its strong anger and opposition to that,” China Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said on Tuesday.

“We call on the U.S. to stop finger pointing at China. The utmost priority is for the international community to cooperate on fighting the virus. The U.S. should focus on its top priority, and play a constructive role in international cooperation on health security,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported on how China covered up the coronavirus and punished whistleblowers when they should have been stopping its spread:

Li Wenliang, a doctor who was demonized by the Chinese communists after he exposed the truth about the Coronavirus outbreak, has died from the virus at the age of 34.

Wenliang worked as an ophthalmologist at Wuhan Central Hospital when he released an urgent bulletin to medics in the hospital on Dec. 30. Police showed up and attempted to intimidate him into silence after the fact, as China attempted to keep the outbreak under wraps.

The pandemic has now killed over 560 people and infected 28,000 in China. Wenliang is now among the victims of the deadly virus that some have said looks to be created as some sort of a bioweapon.

When Wenliang became aware of the coronavirus, he noted seven cases of a virus in his hospital that reminded him of SARS, which led to a global pandemic back in 2003. The coronavirus has already far outpaced SARS in terms of deadliness, just weeks after it was discovered.

He told his fellow doctors to take special precautions, including wearing protective clothing, in order to avoid infection. The communists would attempt to force him to sign a letter indicating he was “making false comments” that had “severely disturbed the social order.” Wenliang was under investigation for “spreading rumors,” but the police would later apologize for hassling him.

China has never looked more dangerous and disreputable as the coronavirus causes a worldwide panic.

CLOWNWORLD: Imported Coronavirus Testing Kits Found to be Contaminated with Coronavirus

This is why Western Civilization is crumbling.

Published

on

In the United Kingdom, authorities have found that some coronavirus testing kits coming from other countries are contamined with the highly contagious disease that has the entire world in a panic.

Britain has been working mightily to test more of their residents, with the hopes of getting the number up to 25,000 per day by the end of April. They have asked private companies to help them achieve this goal, but Luxembourg-based manufacturer Eurofins noted that some of their testing supplies have been contaminated with coronavirus.

According to government sources, the contamination is not expected to halt testing capability by much. The British authorities claim they are now testing 10,000 people per day, although those figures have been disputed. Cabinet minister Michael Gove claimed that they reached that benchmark on Sunday, but figures from Public Health England showed that only 8,000 tests were conducted despite the ability to carry out thousands more.

Anthony Costello, a professor who works at the University College London, has criticized the efforts by the British government to combat the ill effects of the coronavirus. He believes their testing regime is lagging needlessly in comparison to other countries that have had success in combating the pandemic.

“We have 44 molecular virology labs in the UK. If they were doing 400 tests a day we would be up to Germany levels of testing and that is perfectly feasible… If you look at Korea, they have done 490,000 tests. Their death rate is three per million and they have suppressed the virus,” Costello said.

“I don’t see why we can’t get these 44 labs up and running, finding cases and testing,” he added. “We must go to mass testing and when we remove the lockdown… then we will have a control mechanism which will enable us to wait, without socially distancing the whole country, for drugs or a vaccine for herd immunity.”

There have been widespread reports that bad medical supplies are being sent out of China into the West as well:

The Dutch government has ordered a recall of around 600,000 masks out of a shipment of 1.3 million from China after they failed to meet quality standards.

The defective masks had already been distributed to several hospitals currently battling the COVID-19 outbreak, news agency AFP and Dutch media reported. The Dutch Health Ministry has kept the rest of the shipment on hold.

An inspection revealed that the FFP2 masks did not protect the face properly or had defective filter membranes. The fine filters stop the virus from entering the mouth or nose. The masks failed more than one inspection.

“A second test also revealed that the masks did not meet the quality norms. Now it has been decided not to use any of this shipment,” said the Health Ministry said in a statement to news agency AFP.

The masks were delivered to the Netherlands by a Chinese manufacturer on March 21. The Health Ministry said it would conduct extra testing on any future shipments.

Several hospitals in the Netherlands had already rejected some of the shipment even before the Health Ministry issued the recall.

“When they were delivered to our hospital, I immediately rejected those masks,” a hospital source told Dutch public broadcaster NOS.

Globalism has needlessly put many different countries at an elevated state of risk during the coronavirus pandemic.
