Why China has gone silent: CCP enforces highest level of censorship to stop protests and all information about them

This illustrates the total control of the CCP over information and over China. We saw massive lockdowns of hundreds of millions human beings over the past year in China. A few brief days of protest erupted late last month. Then silence. It is hard to know precisely what is happening now but we can be very sure there is a crackdown even harsher than the lockdowns. Many surely have been arrested, disappeared. ABN

This refers to demonstrators in China holding up pieces of white paper rather than written signs in protest. One interpretation is it symbolizes censorship. Another one I heard is: “They won’t listen to us anyway.” I wish them luck and know it is very dangerous for them. Recall how Hong Kong demonstrators were quickly overcome and disappeared. Communist control is based on terrorism. Don’t want the vax, you’re fired, cancelled, and scorned. ABN

Analysis of US college admission pseudo-standards and looming SCOTUS ruling

The United State Supreme Court is now considering two cases that could result in a ruling that it is unconstitutional for universities to consider race or ethnicity in admissions decisions. Such a ruling would be catastrophic.

Every university will react by diminishing or completely abandoning objective academic criteria for university admission.

This process is already far advanced. The College Board has stopped giving SAT Subject Tests — known as Achievement Tests — which were by far the best way to determine understanding of a subject. In 1995, the SAT-Verbal Aptitude test was recentered upwards, so that a raw score (number of questions right and wrong) that previously yielded a reported score of 730 now yields a score of 800, thus destroying its ability to distinguish between bright and brilliant applicants. The grading of the SAT-Math test was warped in a more complex and bizarre manner. The stated purpose of these changes was to decrease racial/ethnic differences.[1]

EMERGENCY – China Has Erupted – REVOLUTION!!!

Many strong signs of rebellion presented in this video. Impossible to predict what will happen but a few factors worth mentioning are: 1) Xi grievously insulted Hu Jintao and his faction by publicly kicking Hu out of the 20th Congress; 2) Xi appointing only toady loyalists to the Standing Committee after seizing a third-term as emperor of China. These two factors and more must have profoundly angered Xi’s rivals in Shanghai and throughout China. Very probable they are fomenting and abetting demonstrations as they arise. 3) Xi could be quietly deposed or assassinated followed by another communist boss. This is quite likely. 4) A real revolution could happen with chaos ensuing. Some new form of government would arise probably with Taiwan and American connections. Some underlying factors are the bad economy in China, American sanctions on high-end computer chips, a general turning away from trade with China by the West. The harshness and crudeness of Xi Jinping is also a strong emotional signal that no one can ignore. China is a highly cohesive social entity so when unrest happens and grows enough, nothing can stop it. This has been a core reason for Xi’s extreme harshness with lockdowns and more. ABN

  • ‘Lift lockdown for Urumqi, lift lockdown for Xinjiang, lift lockdown for all of China!’ the crowds in Shanghai shouted, according to a video on social media 
  • At one point a large group began shouting, ‘Down with the Chinese Communist Party, down with Xi Jinping, free Urumqi!’, according to witnesses and videos in a rare public protest against the Chinese leadership
  • A large group of police looked on and sometimes tried to break up the crowd
  • China is battling a surge in infections that prompted lockdowns and restrictions in cities across the country 
  • Beijing is attempting stick to a zero-COVID policy even as much of the world tries to coexist with the virus 
  • Public fury forced authorities in Xinjiang to open up parts of the capital Urumqi which has been subject to a punishing ‘zero-Covid’ lockdown for over 3 months
  • The protests were  triggered in-part by deaths of at least ten people in a fire at an apartment block who were unable to escape because their doors had been locked due to the virus

It is inspiring to see this. But this is a rare occurrence, both for his speaking out and for his being freed by the crowd. Authorities will surely turn his QR code red or worse. Across the world we are seeing authorities using covid emergency powers to trample their citizens. This shows the deep dark side of political power and how ready even apparently sane leaders are to use it. If all of us would stand up like the crowd in this video, emergency powers abuses would stop immediately. ABN
