The Chinese Communist government has told the U.S. to close its consulate in Chengdu, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement Friday. The order was given the same day that the U.S. has asked China to close its Houston, Texas consulate.
“The current situation in China-US relations is not what China desires to see, and the US is responsible for all this. We once again urge the US to immediately retract its wrong decision and create necessary conditions for bringing the bilateral relationship back on track,” China’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement Friday.
Earlier this week, a fire broke out in China’s Houston Consulate. Many suspect Chinese officials were burning documents in the building’s courtyard. According to witnesses, law enforcement and fire officials never entered the building and the fire mysteriously went out on its own. Soon after, the U.S. ordered the consulate’s speedy closure, giving employees 72 hours to vacate the building.
On Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slammed the Chinese Communist Party in a speech from the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in California. Speaking before U.S. officials and Chinese dissidents, Pompeo expressed the need to change our engagement strategy when it comes to China.
Pompeo explained, “My experience in the House Intelligence Committee, and then as director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and my now two-plus years as America’s Secretary of State have led me to this central understanding:”
“That the only way – the only way to truly change communist China is to act not on the basis of what Chinese leaders say, but how they behave,” he added. “And you can see American policy responding to this conclusion. President Reagan said that he dealt with the Soviet Union on the basis of ‘trust but verify.’ When it comes to the CCP, I say we must distrust and verify.”
Blood Money: New book shows how Bidens received $5M from Chinese criminal gang leader responsible for fentanyl pipeline to U.S.
Peter Schweizer detailed in his new book, Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans how Joe Biden is directly connected to the harrowing fentanyl crisis in the United States.
Breitbart.com reports on the revealing new book by Schweizer:
While Joe Biden was vice president, the Bidens developed a business partnership with a Chinese tycoon named Ye Jianming, the chairman of CEFC China Energy Co., which had strong ties to the Chinese Communist Party. Throughout Ye’s relationship with the Bidens, he “showered” some members of the Biden family with money, Schweizer reported. Hunter Biden received a three-carat diamond worth $80,000; and in July 2017, Ye’s company gave the Bidens a $5 million, interest-free, forgivable loan.
…But Ye also enjoyed a partnership with the former leader of a Chinese triad called the United Bamboo Gang (UBG), Schweizer detailed in Blood Money. Ye’s partner’s name was Zhang Anle or, as he is commonly known, the “White Wolf.”
Ye’s business relationship blossomed with the “White Wolf,” Schweizer explains Blood Money. Schweizer writes that “White Wolf” became an important partner of the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico:
Ye and White Wolf set up the Shanghai Zhenrong Petroleum Company together. White Wolf’s gang, UBG, also has a “partnership” with Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel and helps them in the production and distribution of fentanyl in the United States. UBG helped to turn “the Sinaloa Cartel into the King of Fentanyl,” according to a Mexican investigation of the cartel.
White Wolf had been arrested and convicted in the 1980s on drug-trafficking and racketeering charges in the United States. The UBG is involved extensively in the international drug trade, having sold heroin in the United States for decades. As one government report stated, “It is believed the gang is active in several U.S. cities, including Chicago, Honolulu, Houston, Miami, Phoenix, and various California cities. The UBG has built up a sophisticated network capable of supplying members with guns, narcotics, and fraudulent identifications.” White Wolf also has close ties with the Beijing government; senior Communist Party officials call him “Big Brother.” The fact that a Chinese businessman who showered millions on the Bidens is partners with a crime syndicate partnering in the distribution of fentanyl into the United States might be shocking enough. But there is more.
