The Trump administration has announced it will sanction the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps (XPCC), a paramilitary organization operating in Xinjiang, where Chinese authorities, aided by the XPCC, are perpetrating a cultural and demographic genocide against ethnic minorities.
Why it matters: XPCC controls vast swaths of the economy in Xinjiang. Depending on how rigorously the sanctions are enforced, they could hobble the region’s economy and blunt China’s plans for further economic development of the region.
The Trump administration also said it would sanction two Chinese Communist Party officials affiliated with the XPCC, according to a press release from the Department of Treasury.
On Tuesday, the National Research Council, for reasons that were not made quite clear, entered into an agreement, the exact details of which Canadians are apparently unentitled to know, with a Chinese entity known as CanSino Biologics Inc., in a project backed by the Institute of Biotechnology in China’s Academy of Military Medical Sciences. The deal commits Canadian researchers to the development of a vaccine for COVID-19, the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, the deadly virus that Chinese authorities, by gross negligence and disinformation, in roughly equal measure, unleashed upon the world late last year.
The National Research Council, it might be remembered, was badly hacked in 2014, or in the federal bureaucracy’s lexicon, was made “a victim of Chinese computer network exploitation activities,” and the vandalism ended up costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars to repair. But hey, bygones.
But Ottawa hasn’t yet found the courage to say no to Huawei, or to join the United States, the European Union, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom in the audacious notion that, you know, maybe there should be an independent inquiry into how the hell this pandemic happened. China is offended by the proposition and opposes it. The World Health Organization, its credibility shot, is also against it. So Trudeau is keeping quiet.
Trudeau has also declined to address the horrifying results of an in-depth investigation Amnesty International carried out in a collaboration with the Canadian Coalition on Human Rights in China that details the “bullying, racist, bigoted” campaign waged by Beijing’s proxies in Canada.
Canada’s timid response has almost certainly emboldened Chinese government officials who are bullying Chinese dissidents and activists in Canada
Chinese government officials and supporters of the Communist Party of China are increasingly resorting to “threats, bullying and harassment” to intimidate and silence activists in Canada, including those raising concerns about democracy and civil rights in Hong Kong and Beijing’s mistreatment of Uyghurs, Tibetans and Falun Gong practitioners, a new report says.
A coalition of human-rights groups led by Amnesty International Canada says a timid response by Ottawa to this foreign interference is exacerbating the problem. “Chinese state actors have almost certainly become emboldened by the inadequate responses of Canadian officials,” the coalition writes.
Reporter: “Is your government standing up to China, or is it backing away from China?” Trudeau doesn’t answer, walks away

There is a reasonably plausible hypothesis making the rounds that accounts for Canada’s strange distinction among the world’s leading democracies as the silent outlier, the one government that isn’t either demanding or providing a proper explanation about how it came to pass, exactly, that a virus outbreak that began in China managed to go on to kill more than 260,000 people around the world, among them more than 4,200 Canadians.
It’s that Justin Trudeau’s government is afraid.
WHO Blocked Doctors From Urging Border Controls to Stop Spread of Coronavirus – Study Finds New York’s Cases Result of Travel From Europe
A Mount Sinai study found that New York City’s record-high coronavirus cases and deaths were “predominately” due to travel from Europe, meaning that many more lives could have been saved if borders had been closed down earlier.
The World Health Organization blocked doctors from urging countries to impose border controls to stop the spread of coronavirus, it has been revealed.
While the organization was demanding countries impose zero border controls, it was also campaigning against the profiling of international travelers in order to prevent the “stigmatization” of Chinese people (hurt feelings).
We first reported on the WHO telling countries not to impose travel bans back at the end of January, when the organization released a statement urging against “any travel or trade restriction” while demanding countries not engage in “discrimination” in their handling of the coronavirus outbreak.
In early February, Director-General of the World Health Organization Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus re-iterated this in a statement in which he said that travel restrictions “can have the effect of increasing fear and stigma.”
Right up until the end of February, the WHO continued “to advise against the application of travel or trade restrictions to countries experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks,” despite the rapid spread of the disease.
It has now been revealed that medical experts who were urging countries to impose border controls were silenced.
Way back on Feb. 23, The Post ran an opinion piece by Steven Mosher saying that we couldn’t trust China’s story about the origins of COVID-19. He argued that the virus might — might — have jumped to the human population thanks to errors at a Chinese laboratory in Wuhan, rather than via that city’s now-notorious “wet market.”
The piece was widely read online — until Facebook stepped in.
The social media giant’s “fact checkers” decided this was not a valid opinion. If you tried to share Mosher’s column on Facebook, the social network stuck a “False Information” alert on top, saying that finding was “checked by independent fact-checkers” and preventing your friends from clicking to connect to the original article to see for themselves.
Again, this was an opinion column, not a news report
Trudeau gave $830,000 for COVID-19 research to the same Wuhan virus laboratory suspected of kicking off the pandemic
Justin Trudeau’s government is funding a nearly one million dollar Canadian taxpayer-funded coronavirus research project at the Wuhan China virus lab suspected as the source of the deadly plague.
According to the government website detailing the COVID-19 research disbursement, the $828,046 grant:
“…addresses the urgent need of rapid point-of-care diagnostics of COVID-19. The collaborative research is conducted by a multi-disciplinary team of virologists, chemists, infectious disease specialists, front-line practitioners, and public health researchers from the University of Alberta, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, and Wuhan Institute of Virology (China).
“Our team members in Wuhan who currently perform the standard diagnostic tests will lead this effort.”
The grant is for the noble cause of speeding up #coronavirus testing in parts of the world with limited healthcare resources.
Unfortunately, it seems the project relies heavily on the one lab that could be responsible for the outbreak.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to the Washington Post, concerned US officials:
“…so much that they dispatched two diplomatic cables categorized as Sensitive But Unclassified back to Washington. The cables warned about safety and management weaknesses at the WIV lab and proposed more attention and help. The first cable also warns that the lab’s work on bat coronaviruses and their potential human transmission represented a risk of a new SARS-like pandemic.”
China lied and covered up this disease.
A new Associated Press investigation revealed that:
“In the six days after top Chinese officials secretly determined they likely were facing a pandemic from a new coronavirus, the city of Wuhan at the epicenter of the disease hosted a mass banquet for tens of thousands of people; millions began traveling through for Lunar New Year celebrations.
Doctors in Wuhan were afraid,” said Dali Yang, a professor of Chinese politics at the University of Chicago. “It was truly intimidation of an entire profession.”
Chinese scientists either loyal to the Chinese communist state, completely muzzled by the Chinese communist state or fearing being disappeared by the Chinese communist state, and who are currently working at the virus lab that is likely responsible for the spread of the coronavirus are going to lead the Canadian-funded research effort into rapid testing for the virus.
China is completely responsible for the plague that is now killing our old people, screeching national economies to a halt and robbing free people in free countries of their civil liberties.
China can pay for their own fake communist research at their Petri dish of a lab. Canadians suffering from this Chinese plague should not be.
Photos from southern China being posted on Chinese social media show businesses & even whole towns prohibiting entry of “foreigners” because of the coronavirus. Some signs are more specific.
Look at how China cheats the world. These are “medical supplies.” pic.twitter.com/JNSyiTqG1C

Australian labor MP Shaoquett Moselmane: ‘Obsolete scum of white Australia’ behind anti-Chinese sentiment – He is suspended and turns out he has ties to China’s CCP
Embattled NSW Labor MP Shaoquett Moselmane has warned “the obsolete scum of white Australia” has re-emerged, attacked Australia’s “mainstream media” as anti-Chinese and praised Beijing’s leadership during the coronavirus crisis in a February essay that mirrors Chinese state propaganda.
An Australian lawmaker is to be suspended from his party following reports his office is facing investigation by national security agencies over alleged links to China.
Authorities raided the home and office of Shaoquett Moselmane, a New South Wales state politician, on Friday.
Police and intelligence agencies said it involved an “ongoing investigation”, but did not give further details.
21 million cell phone subscriptions disappeared in China, suddenly. Why did this happen?
Hong Kong reporter who made a post on FB regarding this “missing number” of cellphone subscribers got fired the day he posted the same stats, and then his boss resigned as well.

WHO Director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus Was Top Member of Violent Ethiopian Communist Party Which Was Listed As A Terrorist Organization By The U.S. Government
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, as well as being the first WHO director without a medical degree, also has a somewhat political background compared to his predecessors. On his online biography, the WHO lays out his qualifications as Ethiopian Minister of Health from 2002 to 2012, impressive stuff.
Canada’s health minister Patty Hajdu: “There’s no indication that the data that came out of China in terms of their infection rate and their death rate was falsified in any way”
“There’s no indication that the data that came out of China in terms of their infection rate and their death rate was falsified in any way,” Canada’s health minister Patty Hajdu says. She then accuses the reporter who asked about the data of “feeding into conspiracy theories.” (more…)
The World Health Organization (WHO) tried to cam fears of a pandemic on Jan. 14 by repeating China’s claim that coronavirus was not contagious among humans.
“Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China,” the WHO tweeted.
New questions are being asked about whether the WHO has sought to curry favour with China in ways that have undermined the reliability of its advice.
In the early afternoon of Jan. 31, the lead World Health Organization representative in Beijing held a video briefing to update diplomats on the spread of a deadly new virus – and to laud China for everything it was doing.
United Front groups in Canada helped Beijing stockpile coronavirus safety supplies – same day China told the world Coronavirus is not contagious it also told its consulates and embassies to start sending face masks home
China was evidently hiding the extent of a pandemic that endangered the world while covertly securing PPE at low prices. This “surreptitious” operation left “the world naked with no supply of PPE,” Jorge Guajardo, Mexico’s former ambassador to Beijing, told Global News.
The result: starting in March, after COVID-19 had circled the globe, countries that provided masks to China in January and February were forced to compete for China’s supply.
By late January, sources in manufacturing and military circles were warning western governments that China seemed to be covertly seizing global PPE supply, O’Toole and Guajardo said.
Dossier lays out case against China bat virus program – Five Eyes Report Details CCP Coronavirus Cover-up
China deliberately suppressed or destroyed evidence of the coronavirus outbreak in an “assault on international transparency’’ that cost tens of thousands of lives, according to a dossier prepared by concerned Western governments on the COVID-19 contagion.
The 15-page research document, obtained by The Saturday Telegraph, lays the foundation for the case of negligence being mounted against China.
It states that to the “endangerment of other countries” the Chinese government covered-up news of the virus by silencing or “disappearing” doctors who spoke out, destroying evidence of it in laboratories and refusing to provide live samples to international scientists who were working on a vaccine.
