On May 13, 2020, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine professor and former Cleveland Clinic employee Qing Wang was arrested for his connections to China.
The Justice Department revealed that the FBI and the Department of Health and Human Service Office of the Inspector-General conducted a joint operation to arrest Wang at his Shaker Heights, Ohio home.
Wang received charges for wire fraud connected to more than $3.6 million in grant funding that Wang and his research team at the Cleveland Clinic were able to obtain from the National Institutes of Health.
The criminal complaint reported that Wang failed to reveal his affiliations with Chinese universities. Furthermore, he allegedly failed to disclose that he was a recipient of grants from the National Natural Science Foundation of China for a research project that was nearly identical. At Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wang held the title Dean of the College of Life Sciences and Technology.
Cleveland Special Agent-in-Charge Eric Smith argued that this wasn’t “a simple case of omission, ” adding that “Wang deliberately failed to disclose his Chinese grants and foreign positions and even engaged in a pervasive pattern of fraud to avoid criminal culpability.”
Wang was part of the staff of the Lerner Research Institute, a research arm of the famous Cleveland Clinic.
According to Campus Reform, Wang was also a professor at CWRU’s School of Medicine, where he was active in its departments of Molecular Medicine, Genetics and Genome Sciences, and its Division of General Medical Sciences. He was a member of the Comprehensive Cancer Center based at the university.
Case Western Reserve University sent the following statement to WJW-TV: “Like many highly qualified health professionals and researchers who work at our hospital partners, this person held a faculty appointment title but received no compensation from the university. While this individual was not employed by the university, we are grateful for federal investigators’ dedication to protecting our nation’s exceptional research efforts from wrongdoing.”
Wang is part of an ever-growing list of U.S. professors being arrested for their connections to China.
It’s time that the U.S. start getting serious about Chinese migration to the U.S.
A moratorium on Chinese migration, and all migration for that matter, is desperately needed.
For geopolitical purposes, countries with adversarial interests should not be allowed to exploit America’s already generous migration system.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
