GENEVA, Jan 28 (Reuters) - U.N. human rights chief Michelle Bachelet is in talks with China for a possible visit in the first half of 2022, but it must be "meaningful, with unsupervised access" to the Xinjiang region, her spokesperson Rupert Colville told Reuters on Friday.

Earlier the South China Morning Post, citing unidentified sources, said that China had agreed that Bachelet can visit Xinjiang after the Beijing Olympics, but activists and a Western diplomat expressed doubt after years of stalled talks. L1N2U80FX

"It is important that such a visit be meaningful, with unsupervised access to a wide range of civil society actors and locations as well as high-level engagement with government officials. As the High Commissioner has said, meaningful, unfettered access to the Xinjiang region is crucial," Colville told Reuters in an email reply.

The Trudeau government defies fourth order to release documents about the Winnipeg lab


The Trudeau government defies fourth order to release documents about the Winnipeg lab

June 2021

Ottawa, ON – The Hon. Michael Chong, Conservative Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs, and GĂ©rard Deltell, House Leader of the Official Opposition, issued the following statement after the House adopted a fourth order requiring the Trudeau government to hand over documents regarding the transfer of dangerous viruses from the Winnipeg National Microbiology Laboratory to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the subsequent firing of two government scientists:

“Yesterday, the Speaker of the House ruled the Trudeau government in breach of three orders of the House and its Special Committee on Canada-China Relations by continuing to cover-up the Winnipeg lab breach. These orders require the government to hand over documents related to the Winnipeg lab and its work with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The Trudeau government’s defiance of these orders demonstrates a complete lack of respect for Parliament and smacks of a cover-up.

“On June 2, the House adopted a motion ordering the government to hand over documents regarding the transfer of viruses from the Winnipeg lab to the Wuhan lab in March 2019 and the subsequent firing of two government scientists in January 2021. This June 2 order followed two previous orders from the Special Committee of March 31 and May 10.

“Despite these orders, the Liberals continue to defy Parliament and cover-up information about these breaches of national security. It is appalling to see just how far they will go to defy Parliament and cover up details about the Winnipeg lab and its relationship with the Wuhan lab.

“Conservatives have once again demanded the Trudeau government release the documents they are hiding from Canadians so that Parliament can get to the bottom of this and ensure these breaches of national security do not happen again. However, the Liberals continue their cover-up by voting against a motion upholding the Speaker’s ruling demanding the documents.

“Now, for the fourth time, the House has ordered the Trudeau government to hand over the documents. We expect Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to comply with this lawful order.

“It’s time the Liberals end their cover-up. It’s time for the Liberals to release these documents and be transparent with Canadians. Canadians deserve to know the truth about what happened at the Winnipeg lab and the breaches of national security. Canada’s Conservatives are fighting to protect our national security.

BUSTED! Chinese Elites Paid $31 Million to Biden Family Proving Joe Biden is a Puppet of the CCP


Many astute Americans wonder how Joe Biden could mess up so many things so terribly. It seems unconscionable that one administration could get so much wrong. The worst part about it is that Biden ran on his supposedly valuable asset as an experienced politicianBiden’s been in federal government for over 40 years. Sleepy Joe spent eight years as second-in-command. How can he make so many mistakes? Our southern border is a disaster. Inflation has skyrocketed to its worst point in four decades.International policy is a befuddled mess. The United States’ most dangerous military adversaries are collectively emboldened. Crime in America’s cities is out of control. It seems like everything in the country is out of control.But is it really so? Has the Joe Biden administration simply made a string of inept decisions? That’s what the radical left might hope we believe. When we connect all the dots, it becomes increasingly evident that these apparent blnders have all been carefully orchestrated.

The collective chaos and calamity Americans now experience was the plan from day one. It began with Biden’s undercutting of U.S. energy independence. From this point, all we need to do is start to follow the money trail.

This ignorant decision not only sent gas pump prices through the roof, it compromised America’s energy security. Here we connect the first dot, the Biden’s strange connection to a Chinese energy company. This was step one.

Other policy decisions don’t appear as clear-cut on the surface. However, the border calamity is part of the total plan. By changing the demographics of our country, Democrats can seize control of the federal government, essentially forever.

This will fling open the door to their hopes of transforming America into a Chinese-like socialist nation. How the botched Afghanistan fiasco plays into this equation might seem unclear as well. But if we consider one aspect of that failure, it emboldened our adversaries, namely China.

The Afghanistan debacle had an underlying purpose. It announced to China, and other anti-American powers, that the U.S. is weak. We will not stand behind our commitments. Aggression towards our allies will not be defended by Biden’s administration.

Every free, democratic society in the world counts on American support. Western democracies no longer share a confidence that the United States will stand up against tyranny and oppression. Joe Biden made America weak.

While Biden slammed the door shut on the U.S. Keystone Pipeline, he granted approval for Russia to complete its Nordstrom counterpart in Eastern Europe. Now, emboldened themselves, Russia is threatening the sovereign country of Ukraine.

Again, not a big deal, right? On the contrary, the strategy being employed by the Biden administration is baffling. While posturing a rigid stance, Biden’s policy is slowly pushing Russia closer to China as an ally.

This new friendship will be cemented at the Winter Olympics in Beijing. Having Vladimir Putin as the single-most visible world leader at their games is no coincidence. This will seal an economic, and more importantly, a military bond between the world’s strongest socialist countries.

Again, this is not a coincidence. But why would a U.S. president tweak so much American policy and make so many poor decisions that all seem to benefit our most dangerous adversary, China? All we need to do is follow the money trail.

The line of corruption between connections within the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Biden family is staggering. At the heart of every one of these crooked arrangements is Hunter Biden. He is the Biden family go-between with the CCP.

The Biden family has orchestrated at least five major financial deals with Chinese individuals directly tied to CCP intelligence. These crooked schemes have netted the Bidens over $31 million. They are not onetime arrangements, either.

These connections to the CCP are ongoing. They have been going on for over a decade. In 2013, both Hunter and dad flew into China on Air Force Two. The pair consummated a deal involving Chinese investment firm Bohai Harvest RST (BHR).

Steve Kaplan, who conducts extensive economic research through the University Of Chicago Booth School Of Business, has revealed more startling connections. Kaplan has exposed how one Chinese tycoon has played an important role in most of these arrangements.

Che Feng is known as “The Super Chairman”. He is directly linked to Hunter Biden and more specifically, the Biden Family. Feng was a business partner of a man who was China’s vice-Ministry of State Security. This agency is the equivalent of the old Soviet Union’s KGB.

Sons of honest politicians do not establish direct business ties with members of a communist party, unless, of course, that’s your plan all along. That is the Biden family plan. These connections are no coincidence.

Hunter Biden’s laptop was the first mistake. However, the corrupt mainstream media and big tech kept this information secret until after the 2020 Presidential Election. Joe Biden is now in control of U.S. policy. China and the New World Order are manipulating him.

Every single policy “mistake” has been part of a carefully scripted plan. The Bidens are in China’s back pocket. They are part of an elite group of people who want a socialist world order. These efforts to convert democratic societies to socialism must go through the U.S.

To accomplish the objective, someone must be in power to coordinate the bonds between China, Russia and the United States. That puppet is Joe Biden. Joe Biden’s list of blunders is not a coincidence. It is part of a corrupt scheme. All we need to do is follow the money.

Taiwan scrambles fighters to intercept Chinese warplanes


Taiwan scrambles fighters to intercept Chinese warplanes

No sign of end to deep freeze relationship between Australia and China

The Chinese flights yesterday included 34 fighters plus four electronic warfare aircraft and a single bomber, the Taiwan ministry said.
Taiwan deployed combat aircraft to warn away the Chinese aircraft, Reuters reports.

Missile systems were also activated to monitor them, the defence ministry said.
Taiwan, which China claims as part of the mainland, has reported for more than a year of repeated flights by China's air force near the democratically governed island.
Taiwan believes the flights are designed to test Taiwan's forces and also wear them down by putting aircraft and defence systems on high alert.
It is unclear what triggered yesterday's mission by China.
Beijing often times them to coincide with visits of senior foreign dignitaries to Taiwan, or to coincide with certain key dates.
Taiwan and mainland China have been separately governed since the Nationalists retreated to Taiwan at the end of the Chinese civil war more than 70 years ago.
Taiwan is now a flourishing democracy but the mainland's ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continues to view the island as an inseparable part of its territory - despite having never controlled it.
