Continuing analysis of the weaponized media coverage of both the Covid-19 pandemic and China, this program begins with reprise of information presented in our last broadcast detailing the activities of Adrian Zenz, the German Nazi fellow-traveler and End Times Christian who has become a “Go-To” source on China for Western media.
In addition to being cited by the vaunted “New York Times” as a source justifying boycott of the movie “Mulan,” Zenz is has been elevated to the status of “anthropologist” by the British Guardian in its allegations about Tibet being subject to mass labor deportations.
(We note in passing that Zenz derives his political gravitas from the milieu of the OUN/B and the SS Galician Division, and the Dalai Lama himself has extensive historical and operation links with the Nazi SS.)
Much of the program details the stark reality of the ASPI–the Australian Strategy Policy Institute.
Another “Go-To” source for reports on alleged Chinese human rights abuses, the ASPI is a less-than-objective journalistic source.
Key points of analysis and discussion of the ASPI include:
1.–The ASPI ” . . . . was founded by the Australian government in 2001 and is funded by the country’s Department of Defence. . . .”
2.–The ASPI ” . . . . is sponsored by a host of weapons manufacturers, including Raytheon Australia, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, MBDA Missile Systems, Saab AB, Thales, and Austalia. . . .”
3.–In addition, the ASPI has ” . . . . extensive sources of foreign funding, including the US State Department, UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), government of Japan, and NATO. . . .”
4.–The above information has been revealed by ” . . . . Australia’s Foreign Influence Transparency Scheme — enacted by the center-right Liberal Party to monitor alleged threat of ‘Chinese political interference’ in the country . . . .”
5.–” . . . A recent profile of ASPI in the Australian Financial Review notes that the organization has ‘been accused of fomenting anti-China hysteria, to the alleged benefit of its benefactors.’ . . .”
6.–” . . . . ASPI has been so bellicose it has come in for criticism from major figures in Australian foreign policy circles. . . .”
7.–” . . . . Former Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr has slammed ASPI for pushing a ‘one-sided, pro-American view of the world’, while the former Australian ambassador to China Geoff Raby added that ASPI is ‘the architect of the China threat theory in Australia’. . . .”
8.–” . . . . Australian Senator Kim Carr of the Labour Party has echoed the criticism of ASPI, condemning the think tank for seeking to “promote a new cold war with China” in collaboration with the US. . . . highlighting ASPI’s extensive funding from the US State Department’s Global Engagement Center, headed by former CIA officer and Navy fighter pilot Lea Gabrielle. . . .”
9.–ASPI sources allegations from ” . . . . Bitter Winter . . . a project of the Center for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR) . . . .”
10.–Discussed at length in FTR #521, CESNUR (through its Bitter Winter blog) ” . . . . have vigorously defended fanatical Chinese religious movements including Falun Gong and the Church of the Almighty God, or Eastern Lightning. . . . Eastern Lightning is notorious for mass kidnappings, assaults, and murderous violence against perceived ‘demons’ or non-believers, including bludgeoning a woman to death for refusing to give recruiters her phone number in 2014 . . .”
11.–In addition: ” . . . . CESNUR has also taken up the cause of the Japanese doomsday cult, Aum Shinrikyo which was responsible for the 1995 Tokyo sarin gas attack. . . .”
