REPORT: China Likely Using Slave Labor to Build Your Favorite Consumer Goods

Published

on

On March 1, 2020, Twitter user Nathan Attrill tweeted about the Chinese government’s forced transfer of Uyghurs and ethnic minorities to factories building up goods that are casually consumed in the West.

He linked to a report from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) titled “Uyghurs for Sale.”

In a report titled “Uyghurs for Sale”, Vicky Xiuzhong Xu, Danielle Cave, Dr James Leibold, Kelsey Munro, & Nathan Ruser detailed how the Chinese government “has facilitated the mass transfer of Uyghur and other ethnic minority citizens from the far west region of Xinjiang to factories across the country.” The report contends that these conditions “strongly suggest forced labour” with Uyghurs working “in factories that are in the supply chains of at least 83 well-known global brands in the technology, clothing and automotive sectors, including Apple, BMW, Gap, Huawei, Nike, Samsung, Sony and Volkswagen.”

From 2017 to 2019, more than 80,000 Uyghurs were forced out of Xinjiang to work in factories throughout China and good portion of them were sent straight to detention camps. However, the ASPI report contends that “The estimated figure is conservative and the actual figure is likely to be far higher.” Similarly, the authors noted that “In factories far away from home, they typically live in segregated dormitories,3 undergo organised Mandarin and ideological training outside working hours,4 are subject to constant surveillance, and are forbidden from participating in religious observances.5

ASPI added that “small number of brands including Abercrombie & Fitch advised they have instructed their vendors to terminate their relationships with these suppliers in 2020. Others, including Adidas, Bosch and Panasonic, said they had no direct contractual relationships with the suppliers implicated in the labour schemes, but no brands were able to rule out a link further down their supply chain.”

Known China critic Gordon Chang commented “US Customs should impound all products from #China until the importer can prove that those goods were not made with slave or forced labor. Obviously, the current system is not working. I do not want my running shoes to be a crime against humanity. #Nike #Uighurs #EastTurkistan

Although China has enthralled many international observers, it is among the most authoritarian countries in the globe,

It has no right to bear arms, freedom of speech, or freedom of religion.

Americans with a conscious should think twice about doing business with Chinese companies that have ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

Weak Senator Mitt Romney Attacks GOP’s Investigation On Sleepy Joe’s Corruption

Published

on

On September 16, 2020, Utah Senator Mitt Romney criticized his fellow Republicans in the Senate Homeland Security Committee for their investigation into Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son’s business dealings in Ukraine.

Romney declared that this investigation had the “earmarks of a political exercise.”

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, the leader of this investigation, said to reporters on September 14 that “in about a week we’re going to learn a whole lot more of Vice President Biden’s unfitness for office.” The committee is in the process of investigating Hunter Biden’s work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma during a time when Joe Biden was the head of Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.

Romney specifically stated at a hearing on September 16 that the investigation “from the outset had the earmarks of a political exercise. I’m fearful that comments made in the media recently have only confirmed that perspective.”

The Utah Senator declared “It’s not the legitimate role of government, for Congress or for taxpayer expense, to be used in an effort to damage political opponents.” He added, “I do believe it’s very important that the committees of Congress, and ours in particular, not fall into an increasing pattern that we’re seeing, which is using taxpayer dollars and the power of Congress to do political work. That’s the role of campaigns.”

Earlier in March of this year, Romney said that the investigation “appears” to be politically motivated. However, a spokesperson for the senator said that he ended up changing his mind the following day after receiving a promise from Johnson that the probe would be conducted behind closed doors.

Romney yet again shows his true colors as a Republican with no spine. In a previous report, BLP exposed Romney for calling out Trump and asserting that he is stoking racial animosity. Romney’s politically correct comments show how low he will stoop to in trying to seek approval from the political establishment. It’s no surprise why he voted to impeach Trump earlier this year.

Serious conservatives should do everything possible to boot Romney out of the party.
