WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. Navy destroyer carried out a “freedom of navigation operation” on Thursday, coming within 12 nautical miles of an artificial island built up by China in the South China Sea, U.S. officials told Reuters.

The operation came as President Donald Trump’s administration seeks Chinese cooperation in dealing with North Korea’s missile and nuclear programs and could complicate efforts to secure a common stance.

The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the USS John S. McCain traveled close to Mischief Reef in the Spratly Islands, among a string of islets, reefs and shoals. China has territorial disputes with its neighbors over the area.

It was the third “freedom of navigation operation” during Trump’s presidency… read more

A children's fashion show in China is causing controversy. Fashion shows are constantly being criticized for their use of either underweight or overweight models, or models who in some way don’t represent the general population.

Now new photos have emerged of a show that many feel has just totally crossed the line: Girls who appear to be as young as 5 have walked the runway in a Victoria’s Secret–style fashion show in China.

The shocking images show that the children were wearing nothing but lingerie, costume wings, and headpieces — all in front of a very snap-happy crowd.

The show was held at a shopping mall in Chengdu City, in southwest China’s Sichuan province…. read more

Exodus 15:9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. 10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

JESUS APPEARS TO A SHAMAN ON THE BRINK OF DEATH IN CHINA


THE DREAM THAT CHANGED…EVERYTHING

Without warning, Ting’s health started to deteriorate.  In just over the course of a few days, she was bed-ridden and completely paralyzed. Her illness perplexed doctors. No one had any answers, and they were running out of time. Every passing moment could be Ting’s last.

She couldn’t even speak of her agony. Or her fear of death, which seemed inches away and creeping closer.

She fell into a deep sleep. And in the midst of her slumber, she heard a voice summoning her in her dreams. Ting says—…. <!–more–>

There, they questioned him and tried to force him to confess to participating in cult activities. When he refused, they officially detained him and transferred him to a detention center.

In addition, officials coerced him into signing a transcript of the interrogation on June 13…. read more

Members of Tuanqian Village Church in Rui’an, a county-level city in Wenzhou, Zhejiang, spoke with reporters on June 4, saying that after their church refused to install government surveillance equipment, they lost power and water to several buildings associated with the church.

The leaders of the church believe they may need to relent and install the cameras.

“I heard that the church leaders are about to give up their resistance because the wires in the director’s factory were cut off,” an anonymous church member said. “The wires of the church leaders’ houses were damaged as well. [They have targeted] both the private residence and a factory. It’s too much pressure. They are about to give in.”… read more

Apple’s Need for Slave Labor Clearly Overrides their Argument that a U.S. Plant is Impossible due to Supply Chain Issues


There have been many articles written about Apple’s iPhone slave labor camps in China over the years and at the bottom of today’s report I’ve listed a few in a random list.

Below is just a snippet of that documentary.

Patently Apple wrote a damning report against the BBC report titled “The BBC Report About Apple is Motivated by Politics and Unions.” At the end of that report I listed a series of other reports that I had written on the matter to that date – all pro Apple… read more

TUCSON – A Sierra Vista woman says a note from a ‘Chinese prisoner’ ended up inside a purse at her local Walmart.

Laura Wallace’s mother-in-law purchased a purse from the store using a gift card she’d given her. She later found a tiny folded up note inside a zipper compartment.

The note was written in Chinese. Wallace had it translated.

“It actually stated that the person who wrote that was a prisoner in China,” she said. “Basically what their situation was and how they work long hours, 14 hours a day. And they don’t have a lot to eat.”… read more
