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.

Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts

The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.

Published

on

The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.

In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”

Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”

The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:

After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.

Toccalini concluded:

Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.

Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
