Following Biden’s departure from the Obama administration, Gutmann brought him on board at the university, placing him as figurehead leading the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, based in Washington, DC. Besides the non-transparent $22 million in donations from China that came in after Biden came aboard, there was the handsome salary he was paid for what appeared to be almost no work.
Now she’s been offered a prestigious job in the administration, serving in Berlin.
Amy Gutmann is the Christopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Political Science and was praised by Fortune in 2018 as one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Leaders,” according to the university.
And she’s been president of UPenn since 2004.
But between 2013 and last year, the university allegedly received tens of millions in undisclosed donations from China, according to the National Legal and Policy Center, a conservative-leaning public ethics group. And the dollar totals dramatically increased after the school opened its Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.
The NLPC filed a complaint against UPenn last year, alleging $22 million in “anonymous” donations from the country for the Biden Center and $70 million from China in total.
The secretive, China-funded foreign policy center set up by Joe Biden at the University of Pennsylvania has become a source for personnel and advisors in his presidential administration.
Before his confirmation by the Senate as Secretary of State, National Legal and Policy Center called upon Tony Blinken to explain the anonymous Chinese funding associated with the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement that Biden established at Penn in 2018, where Blinken was Managing Director. He and other Biden aides from the Obama Administration operated as the government-in-waiting, funded by millions of dollars from China. The Senate never forced Blinken to answer questions about the Biden Center’s China funding during his confirmation hearings.
In an interview for “Axios on HBO” over the weekend, Secretary of State Antony Blinken could not articulate any measures that the Biden administration would take against China if it refuses access to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which more than ever is now suspected of unleashing the COVID-19 pandemic on the world.
Asked by interviewer Mike Allen what kind of “teeth” the United States would put into pressuring the communist government if it denied information to investigators — as any person with common sense would expect, considering China has denied and redirected blame about the source of the coronavirus so far, including blaming the U.S. Army — Blinken essentially replied that China would do what’s good for them.
“At the end of the day,” Blinken said, “it’s profoundly in China’s interest to do this as well, because look, it suffered too in the outbreak … Read More ➡
With the explosion of revelations from the release of the emails of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectiousness Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, it has been discovered that Facebook is censoring users’ posts of those public records, according to Reclaim the Net.
The emails published last week by Buzzfeed and the Washington Post showed Fauci — the COVID-19 “expert” whose profile has been boosted by voluminous appearances on mainstream media news outlets — taking contradictory stances on the issues of masks and quashing evidence that the virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. The emails undermined several other narratives that Fauci and the federal government have rammed down the throats of Americans, who have been forced to suffer under lockdowns and economic destruction, attributed to the threat of the coronavirus.… Read More ➡
A report from the New York Times on Monday provides greater detail of the lengths that Apple has gone to to kowtow to China, in order to extract its massive profits from the abusive Communist nation.
The newspaper said it reviewed internal documents, recent filings in a court case, interviewed 17 current and former Apple employees, and spoke to four security experts, all which revealed the extent CEO Tim Cook moved the company toward greater capitulation to Chinese government demands for access to its citizens’ private data. It found that not only is Apple giving access to encryption keys for customers’ data on the iCloud to government-owned firm; It is ceding control of the massive server farms that host its cloud computing for the Chinese firm to manage.
From the Times report:
Two decades ago, as Apple’s operations chief, Mr. Cook spearheaded the company’s entrance into
Bing Ji was named general manager of BlackRock’s newly launched wealth management joint venture in Shanghai, BlackRock CCB Wealth Management, a spokeswoman confirmed Friday…
On Wednesday, BlackRock said that the joint venture it unveiled last August with a subsidiary of China Construction Bank and Singapore investment company Temasek had garnered regulatory approval to start operations…
BlackRock said it holds a majority 50.1% stake in BlackRock CCB Wealth Management. CCB Wealth Management Co., a wholly owned unit of China Construction Bank, has 40% and Temasek holds the remaining 9.9%.
Because it appears the iManufacturer wants its Sino-suppliers to continue the practice, if evidence unveiled by (paywall) investigative website The Information is to be believed.
Citing discoveries made by human rights groups via satellite images, videos, and public statements by Chinese officials, the report “found seven companies supplying device components, coatings and assembly services to Apple that are linked to alleged forced labor involving Uyghurs and other oppressed monitories in China. At least five of those companies received thousands of Uyghur and other minority workers at specific factory sites or subsidiaries that did work for Apple, the investigation found.”
For example, the report identified one computer parts supplier – Advanced-Connectek – that operated in an “industrial park” in the Xinjiang … Read More ➡
