According to a report from Campus Reform, College Board has ties to Confucius Institutes.
These cultural promotion organizations have connections to the Chinese Communist Party.
In recent months, Confucius Institutes have received increased scrutiny from American intelligence agencies and members of Congress for spreading Chinese propaganda at American universities.
Campus Reform reported that over 70 Confucius Institutes are still operating in the U.S. Universities receiving taxpayer money have been under the microscope and have been subject to increased pressure to shut down their Confucius Institutes as evidence has surfaced that China has not been fully transparent as the Wuhan virus started to spread throughout China and the rest of the world.
Thousands of Americans have died as a result, while countless jurisdictions have been compelled to implement harsh lockdown measures.
National Pulse highlighted that College Board is transparent about its connections to the Chinese Communist Party.
One of the most notable programs the College Board pushes is the Chinese Language and Culture Initiatives.
It’s Chinese Guest Teacher Program is a notable fixture. According to its description, the program serves as a way to “help U.S. schools develop Chinese language and culture study programs and to promote international exchange between the United States and China.”
The College Board explained that Hanban, the Confucius Institute Headquarters, is what allowed this program to flourish.
“Made possible through a collaboration between College Board and Hanban, the program has grown to be the largest Chinese visiting teacher program in the U.S. Each year, the program serves hundreds of K–12 schools and districts nationwide and reaches tens of thousands of U.S. students” the College Board noted.
The College Board explained that the teachers who are involved in the program, are “from China” and undergo “a rigorous selection and training process before arriving at the host schools.” U.S. schools that participate in the program are “responsible for providing a partial salary to the guest teacher.”
The rest of the salary is “subsidized by a stipend from Hanban.”
The College Board also pushes the “Chinese Bridge Delegation to China”, which is characterized as a “weeklong program in China to help educators start or strengthen their institution’s Chinese programs and partnerships.”
Activities for the K-12 teacher program consist of “establish[ing] meaningful partnerships with Chinese local schools and networks with U.S. colleagues, attend[ing] presentations on best practices and gather resources to build and support Chinese language and culture programs,” and “experienc[ing] the rich traditional culture set against stunning modern development.” Similar to the Chinese Guest Teacher Program, the China Bridge Delegation to China “is made possible by Hanban,” the Confucius Institute headquarters.
Most Americans are tired of never-ending wars and global machinations abroad, so it makes sense that American policymakers get more creative in their approach with dealing with China.
Some reasonable alternatives would consist of strictly limiting Chinese migration, defunding and closing down Confucius Institutes, and remilitarizing countries such as Japan and South Korea as a way to contain China’s influence.
Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel
Post-pandemic America will not look the same.
Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.
In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates.
Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.”
Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.
According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:
If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.
Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain.
If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
