A Chinese spy spilled the beans on China’s intelligence operations abroad.
At the Australian newspaper The Age a story was written about Wang “William” Liqiang, a Chinese spy who recently defected to Australia.
This piece revealed Wang’s observations about Chinese intelligence operations.
Wang even disclosed the identities of China’s senior military intelligence officers in Hong Kong. Additionally, he revealed how Chinese intelligence operatives fund and carry out political interference operations in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Australia.
Wang took his material to Australia’s counter-espionage agency, ASIO, and is currently seeking political asylum, which may open up another point of controversy between Australia and China.
In a statement he gave ASIO, Wang said, “I have personally been involved and participated in a series of espionage activities.” Wang’s return to China could potentially lead to his detention and even a possible execution. Wang used a tourist visa to enter Australia and is now in an undisclosed location while he seeks urgent protection from the Australian government.
The former Chinese spy went on interviews with The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and 60 Minutes where he explained how Beijing controls listed companies behind the shadows to finance intelligence operation, which includes spying and profiling dissidents and co-opting media organizations.
Wang has also disclosed details about the kidnapping of five booksellers from Hong Kong and their rendition to mainland China. The former spy’s testimony highlights how China’s spies are infiltrating Hong Kong’s democracy movement, meddling in Taiwan’s elections, and operating with virtual impunity in Australia.
ASIO has warned on multiple occasions that the current threat of foreign interference is “unprecedented” and the number of foreign intelligence officers conducting operations in Australia is currently higher than it was during the Cold War.
However, ASIO has never officially named China as a security threat, given the country’s close economic ties to Australia. Such a declaration could potentially damage economic relations between the two countries. Wang declared that the Chinese Communist Party under Xi Jinping “infiltrates all countries in areas such as military, business and culture, in order to achieve its goal.”
Wang added, “You shouldn’t underestimate our organisation … We were cultivated and trained by the organisation for many years before taking up important positions.” He noted that the Chinese Communist Party “wants to ensure no one threatens its authority.”
China’s power in the Pacific is undeniable and raises new challenges for U.S. foreign policy in the Pacific.
While the U.S. has spent nearly two decades in never-ending campaigns in the Middle East, it has ignored the Red Dragon in the East.
A sane U.S. foreign policy is one that ignores regime change and occupations without end, and instead relies on soft power to keep countries like China in line.
New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu Vetoes Red Flag Gun Confiscation Order
On August 7, 2020, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu vetoed a “red flag” law proposal.
This bill would have allegedly facilitated the temporary confiscation of firearms without due process for people who are perceived to be a risk to themselves or other individuals.
Sununu cited constitutional concerns for his veto. The New Hampshire Governor’s veto of the red flag bill was a microcosm of a tense session of the New Hampshire General Court.
Democrats were able to pass House Bill 687, which would have established a red flag law. Under this law, family members could file a petition to a court to disarm an individual who is viewed as a threat to themselves or others. A complete affront to due process, the gun owner would only then be allowed to fight the action in court.
Second Amendment supporters have adamantly opposed this kind of legislation. They are of the opinion that it infringes on the right to bear arms and the right to a fair trial. Sununu was in agreement, and in his veto message he stated that the bill “goes too far and would weaken the constitutional rights of law-abiding New Hampshire citizens,” while he mentioned how the second, fourth, fifth, sixth, and 14th amendments of the U.S. Constitution would be in jeopardy if this bill was passed.
“I will continue to prioritize suicide prevention and mental health as there is much work yet to be done in New Hampshire, but that work cannot come at the expense of the constitutional rights of our citizens,” Sununu wrote.
New Hampshire is one of the more pro-gun states in the country, with a ranking of 17th place according to Guns & Ammo’s Best States for Gun Owners rankings.
For once, a Republican Governor stood up against the anti-gun mob and rejected a blatantly anti-Second Amendment bill. More Republicans should follow suit by categorically rejecting the pet projects of the radical Left.
