‘History Will Reflect on the Good Work’ Trump Has Done: Pompeo

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 1:51 pm

People will look back and see that President Donald Trump and his administration got good things done, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said.

“Look, what happened that day was terrible, and I have said repeatedly that those folks who engaged in this activity need to be identified, prosecuted, and they are criminals and ought to be treated as such,” Pompeo said about the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.

“But history will reflect on the good work that this president and our administration has done. Those books will be written about the changes that we have made in the world, the recognition that we have taken about reality, sovereignty, respect for basic dignity and human rights, a return to the founding principles in a way that previous administrations had not done. I’ll let others write it, but I think that those actions—the actual things that happened—will be reflected in a way that shows there was good work done on behalf of the American people.”

Pompeo was speaking to the “Hugh Hewitt Show.”

Pompeo spent most of the interview discussing the Chinese Communist Party and the Trump administration’s relatively hardline stance against it, compared to past administrations.

Asked if he was worried that a Joe Biden administration would essentially be a third term of President Barack Obama, Pompeo said: “I don’t want to comment on the people, but the policy matters an awful lot.”

“You’ve seen President Trump and our administration lay out a robust response to the great power competition that the Chinese Communist Party presents to the United States. We believe we have the right end of the stick on this. We think this is the right direction of travel. We think the American people demand it.

“We have seen the world respond to this in positive ways.  We’ve seen the Australians do remarkable work in pushing back.  We’ve seen the Japanese, the South Koreans.  We’ve developed the Quad now with the Indians that is very powerful in simply saying no, we’re not trying to punish, we are not trying to contain China.  We are simply demanding that they engage in the world in a way that big nations with large economies, powerful militaries—we haven’t even talked about their missile program and their nuclear program—with countries that have real capacity to destabilize and make the world insecure.

“There is a requirement, there is responsibility that comes with it.  And the United States ought to lead—whoever is president of the United States ought to lead—the path forward in responding to the Chinese Communist Party in this way.”

Pompeo told The Epoch Times in a recent interview that America had ignored the nature of the communist party.

“President Trump recognized that when he began his campaign, and then when he took office, we’ve now changed fundamentally, how I think the West looks at China, not just the United States, even when you look at Europe and Australia and Southeast Asia, they know that the Chinese Communist Party is up to no good,” Pompeo said.

“We were involved in a very serious counterterrorism campaign, appropriately so. We took our eye off this enormous threat and now it’s upon us. It’s now inside the gates. The Chinese Communist Party is here in America, and the Trump administration has begun in every dimension to turn the ship in the right direction, to get America to once again do the right thing and protect itself from this communist threat in China.”

Pompeo while speaking to Hewitt also touched on how the Trump administration has “recognized reality” by designating the Houthis as a terrorist regime as part of an outlook that even critics admit has shifted workings in the Middle East. Trump has led peace agreements between several countries and Israel while strongly opposing Iran and its influence.

Research: Tai Chi Good!

I just read this study published April, 2020 on the benefits of Tai chi in Coronary Heart Disease: https://www.hindawi.com/journals/ecam/2020/4565438/

It is an interesting read and, of course, Tai chi exceeds all expectations. While the study purports to address the ‘how’ Tai chi does what it does, I think the more important thing to realize is that it, very predictably does do some wonderful things.

If flipping a switch turns on the light, you do not really need to know all there is to know about electricity to benefit.

As far as this study was concerned Tai chi improved every measurement that was monitored. That is good enough for most folks.

Police in the nation’s capital on Monday arrested the leader of the Proud Boys, who is accused of burning a Black Lives Matter banner that was torn down from a historic Black church in downtown Washington last month.

Henry “Enrique” Tarrio, 36, was arrested by Metropolitan Police Department officers after he arrived in Washington ahead of protests planned by supporters of President Donald Trump to coincide with the congressional vote expected Wednesday to affirm Joe Biden’s election victory.

Tarrio was taken into custody after a warrant was issued for his arrest for destruction of property, police said. He was also facing a weapons charges after officers found him with two high-capacity firearm magazines when he was arrested, a police spokesman said.

A pro-Trump rally in December ended in violence as hundreds of Trump supporters, some wearing the signature black and yellow of the Proud Boys, sought out confrontations with a collective of activists and counterprotesters attempting to bar them from Black Lives Matter Plaza, an area near the White House. By nightfall, vandals tore down a Black Lives Matter banner and sign from two historic Black churches in downtown Washington and set the banner ablaze.

Video posted online showed people pouring an accelerant on a Black Lives Matter banner near the Asbury United Methodist Church and setting it ablaze in the street as others cheered and cursed last month. One of the videos showed someone walking up about a minute later and using a fire extinguisher to put out the flames.

Tarrio told The Washington Post he had participated in the burning of the Black Lives Matter banner and said he would plead guilty to destruction of property and pay the church the cost of the banner.

Another video showed men removing a Black Lives Matter sign at the Metropolitan A.M.E. Church.

“We just want to see justice be done,” the Rev. Dr. Ianther Mills, senior pastor at Asbury, said in an interview Monday night.

The church community is ”in some ways of course feeling some relief” following the arrest, Mills added. Even so, she said, “we still remain concerned” about the high number of expected protesters in the area.

Mills said Asbury saw another Black Lives Matter sign taken from its location over the Christmas holiday, prompting her to formally request extra protection for the church during Wednesday’s planned protests. Local police already have begun conducting extra surveillance in the area, she said.

A police spokesman told The Associated Press last month that investigators were probing the incidents as potential hate crimes, but no hate crime charges had been filed against Tarrio.

Tarrio did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment on the allegations and it was not immediately clear whether Tarrio had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

NYSE Says It No Longer Plans to Delist Chinese Telecom Giants

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 9:23 am

BY ISABEL VAN BRUGEN January 4, 2021 Updated: January 5, 2021biggersmallerPrint

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) announced late Monday that it is scrapping its plan to delist three Chinese telecom companies with ties to the Chinese military.

It marks an abrupt reversal after NYSE said on Dec. 31 that it was in the process of delisting the three state-owned companies—China Mobile Ltd., China Telecom Corporation Ltd., and China Unicom (Hong Kong) Ltd., in compliance with President Donald Trump’s executive order (E.O.) 13959.

The NYSE said in a statement published on its website that it scrapped the plans after “further consultation with relevant regulatory authorities in connection with Office of Foreign Assets Control.”

Trump issued his executive order (pdf) on Nov. 12, 2020, banning U.S. investments in Chinese companies designated by the Pentagon as having ties to the Chinese military, citing threats to U.S. national security.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP), through its aggressive national strategy called “Military-Civil Fusion,” uses Chinese companies to strengthen the Chinese military, formally known as the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), Trump’s executive order states.

The Trump administration in late December 2020 extended the investment ban to apply to any subsidiary of a communist Chinese military company. The Treasury Department said that it planned to publicly list subsidiaries that were “50 percent or more owned” or “determined to be controlled” by Chinese military companies.

The three Chinese telecom companies were among 35 Chinese companies identified by the Pentagon in 2020 as having links to the PLA. The designations were made under a requirement under section 1237(b) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the annual defense spending bill.

Other Chinese companies identified by the Pentagon include telecom giant Huawei, semiconductor chipmaker SMIC, defense contractor AVIC, railcar-maker CRRC, and surveillance camera maker Hikvision. Many of the companies on the list are publicly traded on stock exchanges around the world, and millions of U.S. investors, through their pension funds, are unwittingly transferring wealth from the United States to these entities.

Before Monday night’s announcement, the NYSE had said the companies’ shares would be delisted as soon as Thursday. It had, however, maintained that the three companies had “a right to a review” the delisting decision.

Trump’s executive order has been praised by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who said in a Nov. 12 statement that the CCP’s “exploitation of U.S. capital markets is a clear and ongoing risk to U.S. economic and national security.”

“Today’s action by the Trump Administration is a welcome start to protecting our markets and investors,” he said on Nov. 12. “Importantly, today’s action also lays down a clear marker for U.S. policy going forward—we can never put the interests of the Chinese Communist Party and Wall Street above American workers and mom and pop investors.”

‘No Crime There, Period’: Alan Dershowitz Says Trump Phone Call Taken out of Context

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 9:19 am

BY JACK PHILLIPS January 5, 2021 Updated: January 5, 2021biggersmallerPrint

News outlets took President Donald Trump’s comments to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger out of context during a phone call that was later leaked to the press, said Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz.

“Well, every major media is taking it out of context,” Dershowitz told Just The News, adding that there was no apparent crime being committed on the phone call by the president.

Mainstream outlets initially reported on Trump’s remarks to Raffensberger as an attempt at a shakedown to “find 11,780 votes” in Georgia for the Nov. 3 presidential contest.

But the full transcript of the call showed that Trump asserted that he won the state and asked the election official to probe election irregularities—like he has been doing for weeks.

“He’s not saying I want you to create the vote,” said Dershowitz in the interview. “He’s not saying I want you to manufacture or concoct the votes. He’s saying, and he’s been saying this for months, on Twitter and his statements and his campaign’s, he thinks that people voted for him and those votes weren’t counted. He’s entitled as a citizen, as a candidate, to say, ‘I want you to find those votes, I want you to find the votes that will pass for me and what weren’t counted, I want you to find votes that were cast against me that shouldn’t have been counted—by people who are dead people, who are out of state.”

Trump’s campaign dismissed the allegations that the president was engaging in untoward or criminal activity when he spoke with Raffensberger.

On Monday, Jason Miller, a campaign adviser, said the full recording and transcript showed Trump was “spot-on in his criticisms of the terrible job Raffensperger did.”

According to a transcript of the call, Trump told Raffensperger: “The bottom line is, when you add it all up and then you start adding, you know, 300,000 fake ballots. He also made reference to allegations of election fraud in the state.

“We’re looking into every one of those things that you mentioned,” one official told Trump on the call. “Let me tell you what we are seeing. What we’re seeing is not at all what you’re describing.”

But the call, which drew widespread media attention, was floated as a possible starting point for another House impeachment investigation into Trump.

And in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Reps. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) and Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) asked the bureau to launch a criminal probe into the call.

“As Members of Congress and former prosecutors, we believe Donald Trump engaged in solicitation of, or conspiracy to commit, a number of election crimes. We ask you to open an immediate criminal investigation into the President,” they wrote earlier this week.

Dershowitz, for his part, said there was no crime committed.

“I’ve been teaching criminal law for over 50 years,” he added. “I went through every word of that transcript, there is no crime there, period.”

Secretary Pompeo: ‘The True Face of the Chinese Communist Party Has Been Exposed’

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 9:13 am

BY SAMUEL ALLEGRI AND JAN JEKIELEK January 4, 2021 Updated: January 5, 2021biggersmallerPrint

In an interview with The Epoch Times’ “American Thought Leaders” program, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo elucidated on the Trump administration’s efforts to reconnect modern America to its founding origins based on God-given rights and described the present administration’s foreign policy of keeping America safe from the worldwide threat of communism.

At the outset of the interview, host Jan Jekielek asked Pompeo why it took so long for the United States to sanction the Chinese Communist Party for gross human rights violations against practitioners of the meditation group Falun Gong.

“You go back all the way to Tiananmen Square. We’ve known the nature of this regime, and frankly, freedom-loving people across the world who have known the nature of authoritarian regimes throughout history. And yet we ignored it,” Pompeo answered.

Pompeo explained that the reason for the disregard of the CCP’s (Chinese Communist Party) grave human rights violations was a great extent due to the existence of a belief that if the United States engaged in fair and reciprocal trade and engagement, the situation would ameliorate. However, reality showed that the idea was clearly “false all the way through.”

He continued to answer by saying that President Donald Trump understood the failure of that engagement policy from the outset and changed the American stance fundamentally, adding that it was not just the United States that has changed its view of China, but the whole West.

“Even when you look at Europe and Australia and Southeast Asia, they know to, they know that the Chinese Communist Party is up to no good.”

Pompeo added that while dissidents were sending out warnings about the CCP’s wrongdoings, the United States was involved in very serious counterterrorism operations and the focus was taken off the CCP.

“We took our eye off this enormous threat and now it’s now upon us. It’s now inside the gates, the Chinese Communist Party is here in America, and the Trump administration has begun in every dimension to turn the ship in the right direction, to get America to once again do the right thing and protect itself from this communist threat in China.”

Pompeo was then asked why he has been more focused on religious freedom than any other Secretary of State.

“It’s at the center of every civilization, this idea that human beings have inherent dignity because of their humanness. And if you get that piece wrong, bad things flow from that.”

Pompeo said that under Trump’s leadership, they have focused on religious freedom not just in China but particularly with the CCP.

“We’ve seen what they’re doing to the Uyghurs in the western part of the country. We’ve seen what they’ve done to Tibetans. We now see them doing the same thing to other ethnic minorities, including the people in Mongolia and the north part of China. And then Christians throughout the entire country,” Pompeo said.

“These things that are fundamental affronts to human dignity are something that is a hallmark of authoritarian regimes and General Secretary Xi Jinping is no different. He knows that he has to extend ever-increasing power and control in order to maintain his capacity to rule. And that shuts out the important space that religious freedom should have for every human being in the world,” he continued.

Pompeo said the administration has done their best to shine a light on these violations and is confident that: “The world will keep up this drumbeat, demanding simply that the Chinese Communist Party permit people to exercise their God-given rights to practice, and not practice their faith in the way that they so choose.”

He explained why he has emphasized a clear difference between the Chinese Communist Party and the Chinese people, explaining that the people who live there are good but are sadly “under the jackboot of an authoritarian regime.”

“Chinese people who live all across the world, including here in the United States of America, we want to honor them, and we admire them. And we hope that they too will join the call to change the nature of how this regime behaves in its international activities,” Pompeo said.https://6d06125149e42a5ed7e6d7596835cc2f.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

Pompeo clarified that people around the world are now seeing more clearly that the CCP is up to no good, “I’m confident that this pressure that is now on the Chinese Communist Party is real. And not just because leaders are demanding it, because people all across the world can see it, the true face of the Chinese Communist Party has been exposed.”

Trading with China fairly or having Chinese students in the United States is not a problem, he said, as long as they don’t break rules that would compromise American security or freedom.

Pompeo stated the reason for his distrust of the CCP: “Every experience I’ve had, in my six years as a member of Congress, in now four years serving in the Trump administration, would suggest that anything but distressing anything that comes from the Chinese Communist Party, is folly. They’ve broken promise after promise after promise.”

At the last section of the interview, he was asked about the importance of the Commission on Unalienable Rights (pdf).

He explained that it is about reconnecting to the idea upon which the United States was founded—the intrinsic and natural God-given rights that were provided to humans and recognized by the Founding Fathers, not created by them.

“It reminds us of the greatness of America and how smart and capable our founders were and why that is so central to the successes that our nation has had,” Pompeo said, “I wanted to get us back to that tradition.”Follow Jan on Twitter: @JanJekielek

Georgia State Senators Call on Pence to Delay Jan. 6 Electoral Vote

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 6:59 pm

BY BOWEN XIAO January 4, 2021 Updated: January 4, 2021biggersmallerPrint

Republican state senators in Georgia started a push on Monday to delay the Jan. 6 counting of electoral votes. At least a dozen have signed a letter directed to Vice President Mike Pence asking him to officially delay the count—and the number is still growing.

“There’s about 16 or 18 of us now that signed this letter to the Vice President … asking him to delay the electoral vote for 10 to 12 days,” Sen. Brandon Beach told The Epoch Times.

“We were going to get it to him tomorrow morning,” Beach said, adding that more Senators might still sign on.

Beach says that he is concerned about the integrity of the election. “People are saying yeah there is something here, there’s something that just doesn’t pass the smell test—that there was some irregularities, there was some impropriety going on in the voting process,” he said.

Ballots and voting machines need to be forensically audited, especially in Fulton county, said Beach. The biggest concerns he has relate to the State Farm Arena’s vote-tabulation center in Atlanta. It appears that a state election monitor was absent for a part of the counting process and that Republican poll watchers were led to believe the counting was over when it in fact wasn’t.

Coincidentally, Jenna Ellis, a senior legal adviser to the Trump campaign and one of Trump’s campaign attorney suggested on Monday that Pence delay certifying the votes on Jan. 6 and instead ask legislatures in the six contested states to clarify which candidate’s slate of electors should be approved.

“What Mike Pence could do, and what he should do, in fact, is to direct a question back to the state legislatures when there are two competing slates of delegates from these six states.

“He can ask that question to the states and say, ‘Well, state legislators, you know, I have an oath to the Constitution to uphold the Constitution as written in Article II Section 1.2, which says the state legislatures direct the manner in which electoral delegates are selected, so you tell me which of these two slates was selected in the manner that your state general assembly has designated,’” Ellis told Just the News television show The Water Cooler.

When Beach was asked if they had discussed anything relating to certifying the state’s electoral votes, he said: “If the Vice President is able to take our letters to postpone, then we would be in session and we could discuss what we could maybe do as a state senate in a state house.

“Right now, we can’t do anything because we’re not in session,” he added.

Georgia’s governor Brian Kemp previously refused to call a special session to consider claims of election fraud and other irregularities.

Other state senators in Georgia, including Beach, recognize it is highly unlikely for a special session to be called in the state as things stand now.

“Since Congress meets Wednesday regarding the electoral college vote, a special session before they meet is not an option,” state Senator Kay Kirkpatrick told The Epoch Times via email. “But I will continue to fight for the truth.”

“I am working every day to get to the facts of any and all fraud reports,” she added. “It is critical that we can trust our election system. I have been dividing my time between looking into all aspects of the Nov. 3 election and trying to get our two U.S. Senators re-elected.”

Beach said he and other senators called for the delay so they “can continue to have more time to investigate and scan these ballots.” The senator said he also wrote an individual letter to Pence as a member of the state’s judiciary subcommittee.

State senators in other states have also started a similar push, according to Beach.

“I think several senators from Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Arizona also wrote letters sent to the Vice President, [telling him] we want the vice president to at least delay it 10 to 12 days.”

Under the Constitution, Jan. 20 is the date where officially, “The terms of the President and the Vice President shall end … of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall then begin.”

Beach said he is doing all of this because he wants to get to the bottom of it.

“I’ve had my cell phone on my website and on my senate sites for eight years, I have never received any calls,” he said. “I may have gotten a call here now and then but after this—my phone has blown up, my email has blown up, my text messages have blown up.”

“People are angry, they’re mad, they feel disenfranchised,” he added.Follow Bowen on Twitter: @BowenXiao_

Radical Senate candidate Ossoff: Police can’t help keep criminal illegal immigrants off the streets in Georgia

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 6:54 pm

Posted by: Pat Droney| |CategoriesEditorialFeaturedMust ReadsShare: 

The following article contains editorial comment from a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

MARIETTA, GA- The fact that two far-left radicals are within a sniff of a Senate seat in the former dead-red state of Georgia shows that either people are not paying attention or that polls are as useless as they seem.

Either way, both Democratic candidates in the January 5 U.S. Senate runoff are about as far-left as to be almost off the map. Take the case of Jon Ossoff (D), who is running against incumbent David Perdue (R).

On Wednesday, Ossoff, campaigning in Marietta, Georgia said that he is opposed to local law enforcement authorities cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) through the 287(g) program, which permits local officers to turn over criminal illegal aliens to ICE for arrest and deportation, according to Breitbart.

Ossoff’s position actually comes as no surprise, since the platform put forth by the Biden campaign and enthusiastically embraced by the far-left component of the Democratic party wants to basically make the border wide open, good time rock and roll for anyone who wants to enter the United States.

“I think that federal immigration law should be the purview of federal authorities and not local law enforcement, and here’s why, here’s why I oppose the 287(g) program,” Ossoff said.

“There have to be bonds of trust between local communities and law enforcement.”

Sure, like calling police thugs, Gestapo, Nazis and storm troopers, as a number of Democrats have done. Nothing like referring to police as the enemy in order to restore “bonds of trust between local communities and law enforcement.”

Ossoff continued:

“We can’t have a situation where, for example, if there is domestic violence going on in someone’s household, they are afraid to call the local authorities because everyone’s going to get their papers checked when the local [police department] arrives.

“There has to be trust between local law enforcement and local communities. And so that’s why I don’t believe that it is the role of local law enforcement to be executing those documentation checks when they’re going about their daily duties going about public safety.”

Of course, Ossoff; shows his sheer ignorance of how the 287(g) program works, since that agreement doesn’t take hold until after a criminal illegal alien has been arrested.

The program identifies illegal aliens or those with pending criminal charges after they have already been booked into jail. But hey, it sounds good; not that Democrats would every use lies or hyperbole in order to make a point.

LET Unity

Currently, the Georgia Department of Corrections has such an agreement with ICE in order to identify criminal illegal aliens booked into state jails or correctional facilities and to ensure that they are held and not released back into the community.

There have been hundreds of cases across the United States where illegal aliens, who were subject to ICE detainers, have been released into the community only to offend again, in some cases accused of felonies up to and including murder.

A number of Georgia law enforcement agencies cooperate in the 287(g) program, including the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office, the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office, the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, and the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office.

In addition to wanting to turn criminal illegal aliens loose into communities, Ossoff also advocates amnesty for an estimated 11 to 22 million criminal illegal aliens who are already in the United States, were he to get elected to the Senate.

Specifically, Ossoff has said that he would seek a “path to legal status” for all illegal aliens “who otherwise follow the law.”

In other words, despite that by their very presence in the United States they have committed a crime, as long as they don’t commit any other crimes Ossoff thinks they should be granted immunity.

Of course, Ossoff is playing right into the Democratic party playbook, as House and Senate Democrats, believing that most of those 11 to 22 million illegals will end up voting Democrat, have already promised to push amnesty this year if they gain control of the Senate and Biden is actually declared the official winner of the presidential race on Wednesday.

Democrats believe amnesty to be a major priority in their plan to fundamentally alter the landscape of the United States.

According to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY):

“The big picture is this: We need to pass comprehensive immigration reform once and for all. It is one of my top goals, it is one of my dreams. I always believed that immigration is an area where the Senate can find bipartisan ground…we have broad-based support.”

“Broad-based support” for 11 to 22 million new probably Democratic voters? We’re sure the Republicans are all over that…not!

The Georgia runoff takes place on January 5. Republicans currently hold a 50-48 majority in the upper chamber with the two Georgia seats in play. Should the Democrats win both seats, that would end up in a 50-50 tie in the senate, with the vice president, as the President of the Senate acting as a tiebreaker.

If Biden prevails in the certification vote in Congress on January 6, Kamala Harris (D) would be the deciding vote on any ties.

Xi Orders China’s Military to Focus on ‘Preparing for War’ as Party Approaches 100th Anniversary

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 2:13 pm

BY CATHY HE January 4, 2021 Updated: January 4, 2021biggersmallerPrint

Chinese leader Xi Jinping has commanded the regime’s military to focus on “preparing for war,” as Beijing looks to make a splash in 2021—the year marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

In the first order of the year, Xi instructed the forces to ratchet up military training. As chairman of the regime’s Central Military Commission (CMC), Xi is head of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the CCP’s armed forces.

He ordered the PLA to “focus on preparing for war, deepen the transformation of military training, build a new type of military training system, and comprehensively improve the level of combat training and ability to win,” according to Chinese state media Xinhua.

The order follows the CCP’s escalation of military confrontations in several areas last year, including on the India-China border, the Taiwan Strait, and the South China Sea.

Xi also emphasized the role of technology in military training and combat, describing science and technology as a “core idea in combat effectiveness.”

The Chinese regime has embarked on an aggressive military modernization plan in a bid to challenge the dominance of the U.S. armed forces. It’s increased military spending by around tenfold in the past 20 years.

In 2020, Beijing’s stated defense budget was $178 billion, roughly a quarter of U.S. defense spending that year, although experts estimate that the amount was much higher. According to a March 2020 report, the CCP’s military spending is 87 percent that of the United States’ defense budget.

The CCP also uses a “civil-military fusion” strategy to harness technological developments from the private sector to fuel its military modernization. The U.S. administration this year blocked visas for graduate-level Chinese students tied to institutions that support this strategy in a bid to guard against the transfer of American technology to Beijing. President Donald Trump also banned U.S. investments in a range of Chinese companies that support their military, due to take effect later this month, blocking U.S. capital from funding the CCP’s military development.

Xi concluded that the PLA must “resolutely implement” the instructions from the top decision-making body within the CMC, and “carry forward the spirit of fighting without fear of hardship or death.”

Last October, Xi told the country’s marines to focus “all [their] minds and energy into preparing for war.” Later, the CCP’s top decision-making body met and discussed “preparing for war by integrating political work into all links [chain of command] of combat effectiveness.”

Li Linyi, a U.S.-based China commentator, said at the time that the remarks were more rhetoric than anything else.

“The purpose of the high-profile war propaganda is to put some pressure on Taiwan and the United States. That’s it. At the same time, it [CCP] must satisfy the domestic nationalistic sentiments,” he said.

Last year, the Chinese regime sharply escalated pressure on Taiwan by ramping up military activity across the Taiwan Strait. The CCP considers the self-ruled island as part of its territory and has never ruled out using force to bring it under the party’s control.

The United States, meanwhile, has increased its cooperation with Taiwan. Last year, it approved several large arms sales to Taiwan and deepened diplomatic engagements with the island.Follow Cathy on Twitter: @CathyHe_ET
