Mainland Chinese spies have used violence and kidnappings to interrupt the ongoing Hong Kong democracy movement, according to a recent 60 Minutes Australia exposé on Chinese defector Wang “William” Liqiang. From the 22nd floor of a Hong Kong tower, Wang’s squad stole U.S. military intelligence. In fact, much of the unit’s theft of U.S. military intel took place in a series of foreign countries. The current series of Hong Kong protests are now in their ninth month, having begun back in late April as a protest against proposed extradition rules that would allow Hong Kongers to be sent to China for trial. At the ASEAN summit in Thailand in August, British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab reminded Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi that China must live up to its legal commitments to the freedoms enshrined in the 1997 Joint Declaration, according to the South China Morning Post. While spying for Beijing in Hong Kong, Wang was in an organization that fronted as … [Read more...] about Taking Stock Of Chinese Political Infiltration In Hong Kong, Taiwan, And Australia

They packed the human skin in cardboard boxes lined with foam and dry ice, and shipped it off. With that, the workers at a facility in southwestern Ohio became part of an incredible drama unfolding 8,000 miles away. A volcano had just rained superheated ash, steam and gas over New Zealand's White Island, a tourist site that dozens of people from around the world were visiting for the day. Some people perished before they could be rescued. Many of the survivors were left badly burned. And doctors were now struggling with another huge problem. They were low on human skin to temporarily cover the burns. Urgent calls went out to skin banks - a vital but niche part of the world of rapid-response medicine. At Community Tissue Services in Kettering, Ohio - on a campus overlooking a quiet pond outside Dayton - a shipment was quickly pulled together of around 300 square feet of human skin, or enough to fully cover more than 15 bodies.

A proposed overhaul of a 40-year-old anti-redlining law has created a rift between three powerful financial regulators. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. have unveiled an ambitious plan for updating the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act, which would give the banking industry new flexibility on meeting government-mandated goals for investing in poor neighborhoods. But the Federal Reserve has, so far, refused to sign onto the proposal. If not resolved, the rift could leave some of the country's thousands of banks complying with one set of rules while their competitors face others. "Although the Federal Reserve Board has not joined the proposal at this time, I appreciate their engagement and recommendations for improvement, many of which are reflected in this proposal, and I look forward to continuing to work with them as the proposal moves forward," Jalena McWilliams, chair of the FDIC, said this week as the agency's board voted to move … [Read more...] about Overhaul of anti-redlining law sparks rift among financial regulators
