If you have not seen it Please Watch It First!
If you have not read Part I it is Here:
This was originally started as a rebuttal to two of my Sister’s (who is recovering from the Wuhan CCP Virus) friends who rejected outright the Documentary pictured above. While I started and continued the response email, I realized that it was more important to interject this in place of Part II currently at the 4500-word mark, which will become Part III.
Eric and Chris;
At first, I was not going to respond to Eric’s email, but after reading Chris’s affirmation, I have no choice. My sister Deborah, whom I love dearly, phoned me last night, having refused to watch that “Documentary” as you put it Eric, and accused me of distributing conspiracy theories. Given that her phone call and email came sometime after Eric’s email, I can only conclude her response was somehow precipitated by as you put it Chris, Eric’s “Reset”.
I am only responding to the two of you to reconsider what you have written in response to the video I shared so that my Sister Deb is not further upset by me sending this to everyone in the group; but I have to say I find both your responses myopic and troubling considering that neither of you offer any real criticisms of the Chinese Communist Party’s role in all this nor provided enlightened commentary to add to the conversation.
What I find most appalling is that while Chris does acknowledge “China’s brutal suppression” of the Falun Gong, there is no commentary on the actual global threat that Communist China poses to the world as Chris continues with “ The Epoch Times has Falun Gong members trying to pass out copies of their newspaper all over Hong Kong and elsewhere. Generally, in HK no-one will touch it. Considering their bias I wouldn’t put a whole lot of store is what they print or report.” I am also shocked at Eric’s statement “however when you know the obvious agenda of the author and the bent of the news organization I suggest we wait till a legitimate organization reports on it —until then as far as I’m concerned it’s a Conspiracy Theory at its best from a questionable source .”
Any validity to Eric’s or Chris’s claims? What is a legitimate news organization these days? CNN owned by ATT /Warner Media, salivating over business opportunities in China? Or The New York Times, whose largest single shareholder is Carlos Slim? As Michael Massing in the Guardian notes “Who is more dangerous: El Chapo or Carlos Slim?” This monopolization of the media has been growing in the past decades and in this ARCHIVED – Transcript | CRTC from Tuesday, March 16, 1999 in St John’s Newfoundland; I was one of many who voiced our opinion regarding a mysterious series of hearings without a clear agenda regarding the CBC.
“The reason I mention that is because one of the fundamental principles of democracy and the freedoms that we enjoy as Canadians is the freedom to speak, to speak our own minds, to be able to criticize government when government appears to be working against us, and it is very unfortunate that here in this country we have the fraction of a percentage of Canadians who own 99 per cent of Canada, buying up the oxygen supply of our democracy……
Everything that is going on in this country is diverting us away from the truth and I think the truth is that we have a federal government that has gone out of control and that we need more than ever a public broadcaster, not a state media outlet. By a public broadcaster, I mean a broadcaster that is accountable to the public, delivers entertainment to the public and also does investigative journalism on the public's behalf when the government is against the public. There is no people more hopelessly enslaved than those who do not believe that their government is against them.”
This point was painfully evident only months before in 1998. A dear friend of mine Elizabeth Mouland, had in 1998 illegally crossed the Nepal – Tibet border and hiked around, surreptitiously avoiding the attention of the Communist Chinese and photographing her travels. Late that fall she had organized a photo journalism slideshow and with the Canada Tibet Committee CTC had arranged for my late friend Palden Gyatso to also talk through an Interpreter and answer questions. The venue was the basement auditorium of Gower Street United Church in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Neither NTV, CBC nor the Evening Telegram wanted to publicize the event and it was actually publicized via word of mouth and on VOCM Open line, in particular, by the late great George McLaren, who personally attended the talk and slide show and was deeply moved by Palden’s testimony (the first monk to ever be allowed to testify before the United Nations on his 33 year political incarceration and torture.) It received little attention in the “Legitimate Organizations” and they all, including the CBC virtually ignored the event in St John’s.
While I am not a big fan of Andy Wells, when he was Mayor of St John’s he had the cojones, to fly the Tibetan Flag over City Hall and later threatened to do it again in 2007. Andy was publicly excoriated by many Federal and Provincial Politicians and those called “Legitimate Organizations”. Canada has a long history of being on the wrong side of History (Unless you are Communist sympathizer), for example releasing Trotsky from detention in Nova Scotia to disembark with pockets of gold to foment revolution and death in Russia.
Of course most know little of the terror and bloodshed that Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin wrought because “Legitimate Organizations” like the New York Times not only denied the Holodomor but Walter Duranty received the 1932 Pulitzer Prize for parroting Russian Propaganda. Of course, that was only the beginning; “Legitimate Organizations” like the New York Times denied the Holocaust as well, as described in Mark Levin’s Book “Unfreedom of the Press”, perhaps you would consider Mark Levin or the Times of Israel to be unreliable sources? See Times of Israel “‘Unfreedom of the Press’ and The New York Times Holocaust Cover-up” by Joanna M. Saidel which is in stark contrast to the NPR article “‘Unfreedom Of The Press' Is Full Of Bombast And Bile” by Annalisa Quinn. Do you then simply dismiss Mark Levin’s book, because NPR tells you he is a ‘fringe right wing radio host’? or do you read it and then decide if the Times of Israel or NPR are more accurate in their portrayal? Did reading “Unfreedom of the Press” strike a raw nerve with NPR or did they just trash it because of the source? How do you determine which is a Legitimate Organization? Or how do you determine if your leaders are on the right or wrong side of History?
The Canadian Liberal Government of William Lyon McKenzie King refused entry to the Jewish passengers trying to escape the Holocaust on the St. Louis in 1939 via Halifax, when King’s immigration official said “None is too many.”
“the world will yet come to see a very great man-mystic in Hitler…[Hitler] – the peasant – will rank some day with Joan of Arc among the deliverers of his people.” – William Lyon McKenzie King
Of course, King was not alone and Trudeau the elder, who as reported in “Trudeau Deconstructed” by Robert Sibley, the Ottawa Citizen, June 4th 2006
“as a youth and young man in the 1930s and early 1940s, Trudeau was no champion of democracy and individual freedoms. He was instead an ardent Quebec nationalist who, during the worst of the war years, admired fascist dictators, regarded reports of Nazi atrocities as British propaganda, plotted treason against the Canadian state and actively promoted a revolution to establish an independent Quebec solely for Catholic French Canadians.”
We are at the 77th Anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising which broke out April 19, 1943, on the Passover holiday. That September 1943, there was an article printed in the Arbeiter-Zeitung written by the final holdouts of the Warsaw Ghetto. ‘We won’t die as slaves’. In the end they held out for a full month, far longer than whole countries the Nazi Blitzkrieg Storm Trooped through.
Do we dismiss what they had printed because the Warsaw Ghetto Jews had an axe to grind with the Nazi’s? The Nazi’s were the Aryan “Master Race” Cult that believed that all Jews were subhuman; what does the Chinese Communist Party think of Tibetans, Uyghurs, Falon Gong or anybody who disagree with them even their own Citizens, Rich or Poor who have the temerity to exercise their freedom of speech?
When the Warsaw Ghetto Sympathizers went around handing out copies of Arbeiter-Zeitung in Nazi Occupied Vienna how many Austrian’s feared accepting a copy like citizens in Hong Kong who know Communist Chinese Spies are watching at every corner to publicly refuse the Epoch Times?
Perhaps you should watch the Australian 60 Minutes documentary on the first Chinese Communist Party Spy to ever defect. HERE…Worth Watching to see how the Chinese Spy Network operates around the world. Also see “The Spy Who Drove Her: Dianne Feinstein and Chinese Espionage.”
This is not a new concept of people avoiding the truth, as Daniel Goldhagen describes in his book Hitler's Willing Executioners. There was a broad cross-section of ordinary Germans who heard the cries of anguish from the Jews sealed in box cars and either quietly supported the exercise or drowned out the sounds that wailed and clanked through the night. Neither are acceptable, as one of the cries heard was my dear departed friend Phillip Riteman, the only member of his direct family to survive the Holocaust, and I implore you to look at his video HERE. Note his quote at 2:49,
"Twenty million Christians died, nobody talks about them."
"…You should make sure it does not happen to you guys or your children or grandchildren. Stand up against evil. And don’t you ever give away your values. Your Laws and Orders, Canada, God Bless Canada..”
“Remember Evil is always around, make sure, don't let yourself (be) brainwashed, think for yourself......by love you conquer the world, by hate you will only destroy the world and you destroy yourself.... don't teach them to hate, better to love than hate, any time, even if you don't like them, don't hate them.... even if you don't like them, you don't have you invite them to your house for dinner.... you should make sure that it doesn't happen to you guys."
Philip’s was eventually liberated by American forces and wanted to get as far away from the horrors of Europe as possible, the Canadian Liberal Government of William Lyon McKenzie King refused him entry in 1946 just like they did the Jewish passengers trying to escape the Holocaust on the St. Louis. Philip was welcomed with open arms in Newfoundland, which had not yet been conned into joining Canada by elements of the Liberal Party, and he found Humanity!
I am reminded of the immortal words of Martin Niemöller:
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
The Communist Party of China is a criminal Cult with a monopoly of power who brutally and ruthlessly crushes dissent. They have to date, come for the Tibetans, then the Uyghurs, then practitioners of Falun Gong and now recently the Prodemocracy protests in Hong Kong. Do we reject the publications the respective groups use to get their message to the world just because they have an axe to grind against the Communist Party of China? The Tibetans who are in Prison Camps disguised as temples in the largest open-air prison in the world? The 1+ (possibly up to 3) Million Uyghurs who are in concentration/re-education camps? The million plus of Falun Gong who have been persecuted and suppressed or 10’s of thousands of whom, after torture and death were unwilling organ donors for Beijing’s lucrative organ transplant trade? Are the Tibetans a cult because of the role of reincarnation in their choosing of successive leadership? Are the Uyghurs a cult for clinging to their Muslim Faith of some 1000 plus years? Are the Falun Gong a cult because you do not understand their message of “truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance” drawn from the Buddhist and Taoist tradition or is it because you take as verbatim gospel the talking point propaganda of the Chinese Communist Party who have branded them a “heretical cult.”? Jesus the Nazarene was considered a heretical cult leader by the Pharisees and Romans who colluded to nail him to a cross.
When the Koreans wanted to cast off the yokes of Japanese colonial oppression it was the coalition of Christian organizations, Buddhist temples and Ch'ŏndogyo, (Korean: “Religion of the Heavenly Way” which combined Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, shamanism, and Roman Catholicism not unlike Falun Gong today) who organized the March 19, 1919 uprising against the Imperial Japanese occupation and this grouping eventually was amongst those involved in forming the governmental structure of South Korea post 1945.
Philip Riteman felt personally obligated and was encouraged to visit colleges and high schools for the last 30 odd years of his life because there was increasing apathy and misinformation over the Holocaust. The Jerusalem Post reported that “50% of Americans don’t know how many Jews died in Holocaust” These numbers will only get worse with the passage of time.
Who has ever visited Schools and Colleges in Canada or the USA to talk about the 74 to 77 (The Number may be higher) Million Chinese who died at the hands of Mao’s and Marx’s minions in China since 1949? Or are those numbers just more conspiracy theory? It has been painfully obvious that the Free Speech of anyone not left of center is suppressed by Academia in most institutions. See A Tibetan-Canadian student and politician has come under attack from Chinese students, after she won an election to become president of The University of Toronto’s Scarborough campus student union in Canada. Following her victory to become student president, Chemi Lhamo became the target of online abuse, and a petition was launched by a Chinese student which over 10,000 people signed, questioning her qualifications for the position.
Was the Tiananmen square massacre just an irate shopper with groceries in hand staring down a few tanks or was it a minimum of 10,000 democracy protesting students mowed down in the prime of their life with a multiple of that number wounded? The Chinese people are never taught about it in school and those who bring it up are either suppressed, disappeared or called Conspiracy Theorists. Life inside China is like Orwell’s 1984 on steroids and even well educated Chinese who have attended post-secondary education in the West like my friend in the following exchange on WeChat (controlled and monitored the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army PLA) gave the following guarded reply in sharp contrast to her honest opinion the last time we talked in person in Singapore in 2015 when I had dinner with her cousin, Clarence, whom she was visiting, who is a close friend and business associate of mine and has a manufacturing facility in China.
I have spent over 5 years of my life living, working and visiting in the Pacific Rim, Singapore, Shanghai & Dalian (PRC), Hong Kong, Kaohsiung City (Taiwan), Seoul, Ulsan, Busan and Tong Yeong (South Korea). I regularly read articles from the Straits Times-Singapore, South China Morning Post-Hong Kong, Taipei Times-Taiwan, the Korean Herald and The Epoch Times. In as much that I also read articles on www.marxist.org or the Guardian, I clearly know where they are coming from and always read between the lines to glean what they are not talking about; especially if you listen (Worth Listening to) “Melanie Phillips on why she left the Guardian” The Epoch Times does not hide the fact that it is anti-Communist while the Guardian never tells you where it is on the Political Spectrum or the political affiliations of its contributors. When “Trump Accuses Reporter of Working For China At Coronavirus Briefing.” Turns out, it wasn't such an unreasonable assumption.
Is the Washington Post that Jeff Bezos rescued from bankruptcy a paragon of virtue? Or is it a Chinese Communist Party apologist considering that much of Bezos business is hawking goods from China? Jeff Bezos dumped $1.8 billion in Amazon stock Jan 31, 2020 after its share price skyrocketed, but he did not pull a Paul Revere “The Virus is Coming, The Virus is Coming” in his paper but rather published “Trump’s expanded travel ban is a blow to America’s already tarnished global image” on Feb 5th. What about Bloomberg, wee Mikes flagship? See “Bloomberg News’ shameful sellout to Beijing” By the New York Post or “In Appeal to Hard Left, Bloomberg Praises Chinese Communism”?
Melanie Phillips not alone, David Horowitz, Thomas Sowell and Ronald Reagan Left the Left, in fact the Left did not have a problem with Donald Trump, until he walked down the escalator in Trump Tower and announced he was running for President “GASP!! as a Republican!”. I was once a card-carrying member of the Liberal Party of Canada when Liberals in Calgary, Alberta were lonelier than Maytag repairmen and later joined the NDP to help Jack Harris. Leaving the Left is not unlike trying to leave Islam or any other cult like the Moonies, except in North America religiously sanctioned and mandated reprisals of violence are illegal, so they just do it through character assassination and intimidation with the tacit compliance of said “legitimate organizations”. Of course, that does not stop the Federal Government of Canada from passing legislation against Islamophobia while conveniently leaving out Anti-Semitism, Christophobia or Falun Gong phobia. See my Article “Iqra Khalid succeeds in getting the Camel's nose of Islamophobia into the tent of Free Speech”
If you read “Academic who blew the whistle on China's influence on Australia says Canada is in even worse trouble” it raises serious questions. If Canada’s supposed to be on lock-down — but unvetted flights are still arriving from places like China as of March 18th? Why was Canada still sending medical supplies to China, see “Ottawa faces criticism for sending 16 tonnes of personal protective equipment to China in February”. Even the respective bureaucracies are “Weaponizing Government” in Canada and the USA. In the US, Catherine Engelbrecht, whose Husband is a trusted source for specialty machining in my Industry, felt the full court press when she innocently started an Election Integrity group; See “True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht Slams IRS Abuse, Weaponizing of Government”. Regardless if you agree with Ezra Levant of not, Rex Murphy came to rescue over the Draconian manner in which the Federal Authorities came after Levant for publishing a book, The Libranos, critical of the Trudeau Regime. Even this article is Disturbing “Government invests in Chinese coal while phasing out Canadian coal” at the same time as Trudeau was imposing a draconian Carbon Tax, allowing protestors to block Rail Lines and driving away Teck from building a much needed Tar Sands operation in Alberta. Are they all part of a master plan that Justin Trudeau aka Trudeau the Younger’s globalist puppet masters have been marching towards and now possibly hijacking this pandemic to further those goals?
What about the “Mystery surrounds ouster of Chinese researchers from Canadian laboratory” By Brian Owens July 19, 2019, why has this been hushed up? So as to not embarrass the Communist Party of China? Yet this event and the people involved have a direct connection to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Note that “Ottawa funds COVID-19 research project that is collaborating with Wuhan virus lab”
It is abundantly clear that the Chinese Communist Party is the 800 Lb. Gorilla in the room that no one wants to talk about! After “Venezuela's Infiltration of the UN Human Rights Council” in 2019 and while this pandemic is gaining steam, “GENEVA, April 2, 2020 — China was appointed on Wednesday to a United Nations Human Rights Council panel where it will play a key role in picking the world body’s human rights investigators — including global monitors on freedom of speech, health, enforced disappearances, and arbitrary detention — in a move that has sparked protest by international human rights activists.” This is like appointing Adolf Eichmann during WWII to hand pick the Red Cross workers tasked with visiting Auschwitz.
How will this affect the investigation into how the Chinese Communist Party CCP and The World Health Organization WHO not only participated in a conspiracy of silence and disinformation to the rest of the world while forcefully suppressing all who dared to speak the truth. A number of whom either succumbed to the virus like Dr. Li Wenliang (one of the original whistleblowers) or like citizen journalist Chen Qiushi and Chinese real estate mogul Ren Zhiqiang were simply “Disappeared”.
With respect to the content of the Epoch Times Documentary, I had forwarded it to two people I know whose wheelhouse of expertise is Virology and Epidemiology. One an Australian educated Singaporean currently on the front lines of the outbreak battle there and the other a Newfoundland born scientist living in Israel. Neither has any love for President Trump and neither had any technical issues “that's not in question at all” with the Virology/Genetics information in the presentation and respectively retorted “I never trust the Communist Chinese to tell the truth” and “I think it's disgusting how everyone in the world is enabling the CCP”. So, I can only conclude that calling the video “a Conspiracy Theory at its best from a questionable source” namely members of the Falun Gong is not only a patently false but enabling CCP’s oppression and lies. In the wake of the growing body of evidence that the CCP and WHO kept up a sustained propaganda campaign until the infected Chinese Expat Diaspora returned to their disperse global community after their trip home to China for the Lunar New Year in Wuhan; their actions are criminal.
The verified facts to date are:
1. The venerable publication the Lancet noted a high number of cases that had no connection to the Wuhan Wet Market.
2. The only two completely verified locations of Horseshoe Bats are at two separate Virology Labs in Wuhan, both of whom were studying Corona Viruses from these bats.
a. Many individuals, including two I personally know from Hubei Province have never seen bats for sale there at that Wuhan wet market.
b. The Wuhan Institute of Virology was arguably a Biohazard Safety level 2 at best and not a 4 and the State Department warned in 2018 that Wuhan lab testing bats for coronavirus had sloppy safety precautions and had the potential to cause a 'new SARS-like pandemic'
3. The Chinese Government deliberately suppressed all information regarding the human transmission vector of this virus starting with suppressing the health professionals who were posting warnings on We Chat.
4. The equivalent of a bamboo curtain was erected around Wuhan before the Lunar New Year celebration.
a. My two Hubei based contacts noted travel restrictions from Wuhan greater area to the rest of China starting before January 15th.
b. A world record pot luck dinner attempt involving 40,000 families was conducted on January 18th.
c. A full-scale lockdown to the rest of China was initiated early January 23rd.
d. All international Flights officially cancelled out of Wuhan later in the day January 23rd but some continued flying out for a few days. Many of the Chinese Expat diaspora found other flights home worldwide outside Wuhan after the Lunar New Year Celebration January 25th.
e. Chinese Lunar New Year celebration, which lasts until February 8th, leads hundreds of millions of people to travel; it's one of the world's largest annual human migrations.
f. Wuhan is the transportation hub of China like Chicago O’Hare.
5. It is clear that the Chinese Communist Party hid the seriousness of this, possibly aided by the WHO leadership and let it spread to the world despite alerts from Taiwan. See Why Taiwan has become a problem for WHO
GOOGLE: Search Engine for Factual Truth or High Powered CCP Propaganda Machine?
On September 29, 2004, the Congressional Executive Commission on China had an Article Discussing Government Censorship and Google's Chinese News Service Appears on Xinhua, People's Daily Websites
On September 16, Bill Xia, head of Dynamic Internet Technology Inc., published a report on Google censoring results on its simplified Chinese news aggregation page. Specifically, searches performed on this page in the U.S. returned results that included Chinese dissident news websites such as Voice of America and Epoch Times. Searches for identical terms conducted on Google from within China return a messages that no results were found.
Google quietly relegates 'Don't be evil' from its Code of Conduct by Mark Wyciślik-Wilson
For a long time, the words "don't be evil" were associated with Google. While not an official motto as such, the words were heavily ingrained in the company.
Google's method of operating has caused many people over the years to question the phrase, and when the company was re-organized under Alphabet the motto became "do the right thing." Nonetheless, in the Google Code of Conduct which is given to employees, "don't be evil" remained – until just a few weeks ago when it was quietly relegated.
Google is looking to launch a censored version of its search engine for the country, in what represents a major shift in its policy toward China. The plan, code-named “Dragonfly,” has been underway for more than a year, but is seemingly accelerating. Per the documents, Google’s censored search engine would blacklist Web sites and search terms related to religion, peaceful protest, democracy, political opposition, and human rights.
Congressman Louie Gohmert issued a statement, saying “Google should not be deciding whether content is important or trivial and they most assuredly should not be meddling in our election process. They need their immunity stripped…”
WHO is lying most?
This article by Maya Kosoff also comments on FACEBOOK and has this level of Totalitarian Censorship also been applied to GOOGLE Search and FACEBOOK algorithms in the USA? I tried two simple search phrases ["Trump" Lies Coronavirus] & ["Xi Jinping" Lies Coronavirus] 69,900,000 results versus 639,000 results; 109 x difference. Does this indicate that Donald Trump lies 109 X the amount of Xi Jinping or the various “legitimate organizations” thus searched are in China’s pocket and do not print negative things accusing Xi of lying or Google is blacklisting websites that criticize Xi while promoting ones that criticize Trump or a combination of the latter two? Would the Prodemocracy Protestors in Hong Kong reach out America and Trump based in GOOGLE search results? Or do they clearly see the unfiltered truths and fundamental freedoms in America that GOOGLE and FACEBOOK are deluding us into taking for granted? Particularly in this time of need, both entities and “legitimate organizations” would rather see us cower under our kitchen tables in fear of death like Cold War total annihilation than learn the facts about treatments like Hydroxychloroquine. Are GOOGLE and FACEBOOK also suppressing the truth about the WHO’s involvement in Chairman Xi’s Coverup?
Our Common Enemy:
We all have several common enemies in this Pandemic, The CCP Wuhan Horse Shoe Bat Corona Virus, The Ideological Virus of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) who released it on the world knowing full well the lethality, the bought and paid for CCP apologists in the enemedia that some call “legitimate organizations” and the Politicrats & Technopols in the upper echelon of the United Nations, World Health Organization and World Trade Organization who regurgitate the CCP’s talking points like they were fired out of High Powered Propaganda Machines. The Epoch Times and the Falun Gong are not our enemy; I know several practitioners who live in unmolested mutual peace with the governments of South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore. The Epoch Times is not shunned in these areas, notably all non (if not anti)-communist Democratic Republics. Rejecting their message now is tantamount to rejecting the last publication from the Warsaw Ghetto; one man’s “Conspiracy Theory at its best from a questionable source” are the persecuted facts of life for millions inside the People’s Republic of China and the terminal reality for 10’s of thousands of whom lay in silent organ harvested graves.
If we lose this battle with the Ideological Virus of Communism, of which the Chinese variant now appears most lethal, their infected fellow travelers in the agencies of the United Nations and the enablers within the high-powered propaganda machines far too many call “legitimate organizations:”
“There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always— do not forget this, Winston— always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face— forever.” ― George Orwell, 1984
