Bavaria, Germany: CCP Virus Follows Communist China Ties | NTD

In 1633, when the bubonic plague swept through Europe and taking lives from one in four people in an alpine town in Bavaria, Germany, villagers in Oberammergau made a promise to God.

They swore to perform a Passion Play depicting the last weeks of Jesus's life every 10 years if their lives could be spared.

“And they did that. The first performance took place here in this church, Pastor Thomas Groener said, adding that nobody else died after that.

Oberammergau kept their promise and staged the play every decade for the past four centuries.

But not the 2020 edition. The show had to be delayed due to the spread of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, also known as the novel coronavirus.

This time, due to the plague coming from the East. Bavaria became the worst-hit area of Germany, which has one of the highest number of confirmed cases in the world.

So what happened to Bavaria and why is the situation there so dire?

We need to start from Bavaria's patient zero.

On Sept. 7, 2019, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was in Wuhan, China, cutting the opening ribbon for a new car parts factory by German manufacturer Webasto.

By her side was the mayor of Wuhan, Zhou Xianwang, as well as a large business delegation from Germany.

Three months later, German state Bavaria detected its patient zero of the CCP virus. The virus had come from the very same factory Merkel visited.

The 33-year-old Webasto employee was infected by a Chinese colleague who traveled to Germany for company training.

As of April 14, over 30 thousand residents of Bavaria have contracted the virus. Over 800 have died.

....

Over the past decades, politicians and businesses in Bavaria have built an increasingly close relationship with a regime that threatens the German state’s economic independence, national security, and freedom of speech; a regime known for burning Bibles, jailing Christians, and tearing down churches, and with arguably the worst record for persecuting people of faith.

CCP virus follows communist China ties | China in Focus Special

As the #coronavirus spreads around the globe and continues to claim even more lives, the World Health Organization (#WHO) declared it a pandemic on Wednesday.

But as we take a closer look at the distribution of cases, the loss seems to vary greatly by country.

In this special report, we ask some questions that you might not have thought of:

Why are Italy and Iran, both thousands of miles away from China, the two most affected countries outside mainland China?

And what’s the difference between South Korea and Taiwan? Both are geographically close to #China, but one now has nearly 7,800 cases, while the other has less than 50.

Today, we dive into the facts to find the answers to these questions and more.

Chinese Regime Trying to Influence German Officials | NTD

The German government recently said the Chinese Communist Party tried to make German officials publicly applaud its effort in containing the CCP virus.

Prompted by a media report, a member of Parliament wrote to the German Interior Ministry to find out.

“The German government is aware of individual contacts made by Chinese diplomats with the aim of effecting positive public statements on the coronavirus management by the People's Republic of China. The federal government has not complied with these requests,” from a letter the ministry sent to Margarete Baus, a member of the Green Party. The letter was shown to NTD.

Germany has not formally protested the influence campaign. So far, it has also shied away from directly criticizing the CCP. German Chancellor Angela Merkel stressed that transparency from China, including into the origin of the virus, is crucial for combating the pandemic.

The Chinese Embassy in Germany denied that this influence campaign ever happened. It called the media reports untrue and irresponsible and did not acknowledge the letter from the German interior ministry confirming the campaign.

More and more governments are criticizing the CCP’s handling of the outbreak. They point to how the #CCP’s coverup, intimidation of whistleblowers, and the destruction of virus samples allowed the virus to spread around the world.

Recently, European Union officials softened their criticism of the Chinese regime in a report on virus disinformation after receiving pressure from the CCP.

Some countries, like the United States and Australia, want to initiate an independent investigation into the #virus and its origin. At least one German opposition party, the Green Party, is now joining this call.

CCP Virus: Spain's Close Ties to China | NTD

Spain now has the second-highest number of the #CCP virus infections in Europe, trailing closely behind Italy. Today, we take a look into Spain’s relationship with China, where the pandemic first began.

NTD refers to the novel #coronavirus, which causes the disease COVID-19, as the CCP virus because the Chinese Communist Party's coverup and mismanagement allowed the virus to spread throughout China and create a global #pandemic.

UK to Question Its CCP Ties | NTD

Criticism is growing of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) handling of the pandemic in the UK, with several prominent Conservative politicians pushing for a rethink of the UK’s relationship with the #CCP.

In 2015, the former Finance Minister George Osborne, under the Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, declared a so-called Golden Era between the UK and China.

The CCP virus pandemic has cast a stark new light on such ties, as a growing chorus of British politicians are voicing their concerns over the UK’s relationship with the Chinese communist state.

“I think all of this is very much going to change the image of China, with many members of Parliament, and there will absolutely be a rethink on our relationship with China,” British Conservative politician Owen Paterson told NTD.

CCP Tactics To Sway Foreign Politicians

Taiwan’s ((successful)) virus response is setting an example for the rest of the world. But it also highlights Taiwan’s absence from the World Health Organization--because of pressure from Beijing. The Chinese regime's efforts to marginalize Taiwan doesn't stop with the WHO, either. Beijing’s attempts at influence have reached western countries too. Today we look at how the Chinese regime seeks to influence American politicians to suppress Taiwan and expand its clout.

Mike Pompeo
Secretary of State
Let me read you an excerpt of a letter from a Chinese diplomat. It was China’s Consul General in New York sent a letter last month to the speaker of one of your state legislatures.
Here’s what the letter said in part. It said, quote, “As we all know, Taiwan is part of China… avoid engaging in any official contact with Taiwan…

The letter urged the state legislator not to congratulate Tsai Ing-wen, who at the time had been just re-elected as president of the Republic of China, known as Taiwan.

Mike Pompeo
Secretary of State
Think about that. You had a diplomat from China assigned here to the United States, a representative of the Chinese Communist Party in New York City, sending an official letter urging that an American elected official shouldn’t exercise his right to freedom of speech.

Missouri first state to sue CCP over virus | NTD

The #Missouri attorney general is suing the #ChineseCommunistParty for misrepresenting and concealing the gravity and seriousness of the outbreak in December. It's the first state to take legal action.

#EricSchmitt, Missouri's attorney general, says China's regime should be held responsible for lying to the world about the dangerous and contagious nature of the virus. And also for silencing whistleblowers and doing little to stop the spread of the disease.

Schmitt says the outbreak has caused death and economic loss in Missouri and around the world. The regime, he says, should be held legally responsible.

The complaint alleges Chinese officials had plenty of evidence of human-to-human transmission in late December, but not until January 20th did the Chinese response team confirm this. By then, serious damage had been done.

On December 30th, Dr. Ai Fen shared reports of a contagious SARS-like virus in her department at the Wuhan Central Hospital via WeChat. Dr. Li Wenliang, who later died of the virus, warned his former medical classmates in China to take precautions. Later that day, the Wuhan Health Commission told health workers to stay quiet about the unknown pneumonia or else face consequences.

The lawsuit alleges the Chinese regime did little to contain the outbreak. Like when Chinese officials allowed a potluck in Wuhan of over 40,000 families, despite neighborhood committee staff asking them to cancel it.

Trump: US could seek billions from China over coronavirus | NTD

President Trump said on Monday, the US may seek hundreds of billions in damages from Beijing.

The US is currently investigating China's handling of the virus.

President Trump
And we are not happy with China. We are not happy with that whole situation because we believe it could have been stopped at the source. It could have been stopped quickly and it wouldn't have spread all over the world.

He said there are 'a lot of ways' to hold Beijing accountable, and if damages were sought, the amount would be 'substantial'.

A reporter brought up the issue of compensation...by mentioning a German newspaper editorial. The editorial billed China for about $163 billion dollars in losses to Germany, caused by the pandemic.

President Trump
This is worldwide damage. This is damage to the U.S., but this is damage to the world.

Also on Monday, the President unveiled new plans to speed up and expand testing for the CCP virus nationwide.

He said the White House Coronavirus Task Force is confident they have enough testing capacity to begin reopening the country.

The White House published two documents on Monday which layout plans to increase testing.

The documents give guidance to states on how best to increase testing capacity, establish 'systems to detect local outbreaks, and conduct contact tracing'.

President Trump said 'testing' would become one of the country's 'great assets.'

The announcement comes as the administration faces pressure to increase testing capacity, seen as key to lifting lockdowns sooner.

The U-S has conducted 5.4 million tests so far...

President Trump
nearly double the number tested in any other country, more than twice as much as any other country. Think of that.

White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said the testing strategy laid out has three parts... testing those who are unwell, testing vulnerable communities, and a “rapid response program” that includes contact tracing.

Chinese Companies: Headaches for Regulators, Danger for Investors | NTD

As the world bears the massive cost of the Chinese regime's lack of transparency in its handling of the virus, public health is not the only area that the Chinese Communist Party's (#CCP) secrecy is causing real pain.

On Tuesday, U.S. stock regulators called out China for not giving them the information gathered during audits of their U.S.-listed companies, putting investors at risk.

On April 2, #Nasdaq-listed Luckin Coffee, China’s biggest coffee chain, said it had fabricated 40 percent of its annual sales.

Its share price fell 80 percent the following day.

#Luckin was once considered a miracle company.

It was less than two years old when it filed its initial public offering (IPO) in the United States in 2019 and raised over 600 million dollars.

In February, when Muddy Waters Research published a report calling the coffee chain a fraud and a “fundamentally broken business,” Luckin dismissed the claims, calling them “misleading and false allegations.”

But the company did eventually admit to its wrongdoings, although unapologetically.

U.S.-listed Chinese companies have a history of fraud and a lack of transparency.

In 2011, over 50 Chinese companies were delisted from the Nasdaq after a massive fraud bust. Billions of dollars in market capitalization were lost.

If a Chinese company wants to go public in the United States, they need to be sponsored by Wall Street’s investment banks. The banks normally charge a fee of 3 to 7 percent of the money raised. They also need an auditor registered in the United States.

Luckin coffee's banks are Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse. According to a Financial Times report, its auditor is the Chinese arm of Ernst & Young, one of the Big Four international accounting firms. The banks and auditors that sponsor Chinese companies tend to be the top firms in the profession, but that doesn't prevent things from going wrong.

The system itself also has loopholes.

China is one of the few countries that doesn’t allow U.S. regulators to see their audit books. The regime claims the books are “national secrets” and cannot be shared with outside parties.

During a 2015 fraud investigation, U.S. regulators asked for audit records for nine Chinese companies but The Big Four accounting firms refused to turn them over.

The accounting firms later paid $500,000 each to settle the dispute. But regulators say there are still significant obstacles to inspecting Chinese companies.

Many of the U.S.-listed Chinese companies are not regular privately-owned businesses, they're either state-owned or have close ties with the CCP.

Among the five most valuable of those companies, three are energy or finance companies owned by the Chinese regime.

Even the founder of the the privately-owned Alibaba, Jack Ma, is a card-carrying Communist Party Member who has vowed to happily hand over all of his businesses to the party if he were asked to do so.

According to a New York Times report, one winner in Alibaba’s lucrative New York IPO was Boyu Capital, a private equity firm founded by a grandson of former Communist leader Jiang Zemin.

Chinese fugitive billionaire Guo Wengui once said that the top ten Chinese companies, including the supposedly privately-owned Huawei, Alibaba, and Tencent, are in fact “militarized state-owned enterprises” controlled by the Jiang family.

These are the types of companies taking cash from U.S. investors without proper disclosure.

In February 2019, there were 156 Chinese companies listed on the major three U.S. exchanges, with a total market capitalization of $1.2 trillion.

The overnight implosion of Luckin Coffee is not the end of the story.

A market expert wrote that this is a “painful reminder of ‘the extreme fraud risk’ posed by some China-based companies.”

Last year, the media reported that the Trump administration is considering delisting Chinese firms from U.S. markets. In a separate move, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) introduced a bill last year that would de-list Chinese companies that do not comply with American laws.

But so far, there is no indication of if or when that will happen.

U.S. Intelligence Community Aid it Agrees that the CCP Virus was NOT Man-Made

On Thursday, the U.S. Intelligence Community said it agrees that the CCP virus was NOT man-made.

The office did not explain how it came to that conclusion.

And at a press conference, President Trump said he hadn't seen the statement, but did see evidence suggesting the virus came from the lab.

Reporter
Have you seen anything at this point that gives you a high degree of confidence that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was the origin of this virus?

President Trump
Yes, I have. Yes, I have.

So the possibility that the virus leaked from the laboratory in Wuhan is still being looked into.

Just yesterday Pompeo said China still hasn't given the U.S. access to the lab.

Look, we still haven't gained access—the world hasn't gained access—to the WIV, the virology institute there. We don't know precisely where this virus originated from.

The intelligence community also said it's looking into whether the outbreak began through contact with infected animals.

Special report exploring the coronavirus pandemic’s Wall Street connection to premiere on May 10

A rampant plague covers the world. The Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) cover-up at the beginning of the epidemic accelerated the spread of the virus. The outbreak has now infected about 90% of the world’s countries and territories. There are over one million confirmed cases in the United States. And the number of deaths in America from the epidemic has exceeded by several times those killed in the 9/11 terrorist attack and the attack on Pearl Harbor combined.

Over the past few decades, the economic strength of the CCP has continued to expand with the help of financing from the United States, led by Wall Street. The CCP’s ruling model based on information manipulation and violent oppression has never changed. Today, the CCP’s power poses a major threat to American lives, financial security, and to U.S. national security.

What risks have we long overlooked? What kind of solutions can we find from the wisdom of our founding fathers?

Premiering on May 10 at 9:00 p.m. ET:

The Chinese regime tried to block a European Union report

And in Europe, reports that the EU bowed to pressure from Beijing and diluted a document about Chinese disinformation over the virus.

The Chinese regime tried to block a European Union report that documents China’s disinformation campaign about the pandemic.

The report cites Beijing’s efforts to curtail mentions of China as the origin of the virus, as well as disinformation that blames the United States for spreading the disease internationally.

The report was eventually released although some criticism of the Chinese regime was rearranged or removed. That's according to four diplomatic sources cited by Reuters.

The Chinese regime threatened EU diplomats with a response if the report was released, according to information obtained by the New York Times.

In a letter addressed to the EU's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, 57 members of Parliament asked for a formal explanation on what happened.

Member of Parliament Tomáš Zdechovský is one of them.

It's totally unacceptable. This is not possible to accept China's influence on EU politics.

Zdechovský also said this isn't the first time the Chinese regime has tried to put pressure on EU diplomats for its own purposes.

In 2014 there was a lot of influence of China on many issues. They wanted to change some reports. They were in connection with many democratic politicians especially from the left side of the political spectrum and they influenced them a lot because they boycotted a lot of reports.

Borrell said last month that Europe needed to defend itself in the “global battle of narratives” over the #ccp virus.
