President of Universal Coin and Bullion Mike Fuljenz revealed that Facebook is failing to ban counterfeit goods on its social media platform and ignoring those repeated warnings is a serious security risk to the American people. On the latest episode of the Sara Carter Show Fuljenz and Carter discussed China’s efforts to advertise counterfeit purses, cosmetics, currency and unauthorized medicinal products.

Fuljenz, a member of the Anti-Counterfeiting Educational Foundation and an Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force, said “we just sent a letter to Facebook about all the counterfeits that are appearing in Facebook ads. And that applies to Wish, platforms like Alibaba, eBay and Amazon.”

“The Canadian broadcast company did surveys on counterfeits it’s not just purses and watches. It’s not just $100 bills, it’s quarters in your change. It’s cosmetics with chemicals. It can be poisonous, it’s airline parts on the planes we find even our fighter jets for US Air Force. It’s medical parts. It’s medicines,” he added.

In the meantime, Facebook has not responded to Fuljenz’s letter. “That’s amazing. Because they censor us all the time there. It doesn’t matter what you write about. You could write about trying to save lives,” Carter said. “Facebook and all of these social media apparatuses are good at censoring. But you’re saying they did not respond to your warning?”

As a result, Fuljenz concludes that China has too strong of a relationship with the U.S. to motivate any change. “We’re dependent on China for production of legitimate products,” he said. “But the society over there looks at counterfeits differently than we do, and has a great impact on us.”

Now, the president of Universal Coin and Bullion helps get counterfeit victims’ their money back after they buy fake gold and currency.

Shanghai: China’s Potemkin Village



Screen Shot 2021 01 08 at 11.55.24 AM

Following a recent outbreak of COVID-19, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has imposed a month-long draconian lockdown on the residents of Shanghai. The CCP has used the outbreak to persecute its own citizens, including through forced evictions and quarantines, and placing alarms on doors to prevent COVID-19 people from leaving their homes. The harsh measures have resulted in food and healthcare shortages and separation of families.

But of course, we wouldn’t know that by reading the CCP-run press readily available in the United States. Instead of presenting the facts, the CCP engages in a comprehensive propaganda campaign that props up Shanghai as a Chinese Potemkin village. The CCP media asserts that China’s actions in Shanghai are benevolent and wise, while Western criticism is a product of malice. Chinese state-run media also insists that the Shanghai lockdown promotes economic stability in China and the world.

Claim 1: China Has the Best Policy for Combating COVID-19

The CCP media portray the Shanghai lockdown as the best and ideal policy. As cited by a XinhuaNet editorial, “China’s dynamic zero-COVID approach” is “the best option to save lives,” according to a “Rwandan researcher and publisher,” “…a miracle for us to learn,” according to a Kenyan scholar, and “a very ideal response,” according to Ethiopia’s National COVID-19 Response Task Force Coordinator. According to CCP media, Chinese citizens have greeted the Shanghai lockdown warmly, even with “[a] mixed sense of intensity, unity and hopefulness,” according to China Daily.

Claim 2: The West Hypocritically Defames China

The CCP press also accuses the West of lying about the Shanghai lockdown, and using COVID policies for nefarious ends. According to XinhuaNet, “Shanghai…has never imposed what Western media described as a ‘lockdown.’” Other CCP editorials actually accuse the West of malice. One Global Times editorial claims that the lockdown “has been deliberately exaggerated by the West.” Another Global Times editorial asserts that the Western approach of “coexisting with the virus” amounts to a way “…to drive out a large number of the vulnerable people with low immunity,” and a form of “cruel social Darwinism.”

Claim 3: China’s COVID Policies Result in an Economic Windfall to China and the World

The CCP also portrays the lockdown as necessary to achieve great economic growth in China and beyond. One Global Times editorial, while conceding that the lockdown amounted to a “sealing-off,” it is “a temporary measure to better resume work and production and to make the economy and society function more effectively. Its effectiveness has been proven.” According to another Global Times editorial, China’s policy is “widely considered to be the best strategy…to both contain the epidemic and ensure stable economic development.”

In an Orwellian fashion, Chinese press claims that China is solving, not causing, the world’s economic problems. According to XinhuaNet, “China has played a decisive role in stabilizing the global economy and resuming the supply chain disrupted by COVID-19.” Citing a Bloomberg article, the same XinhuaNet editorial claims that China “has prevented a huge number of deaths at home and ensured that everything from iPhones and Teslas to fertilizer and car parts continues to flow to the rest of the world.” Chinese citizens, of course, are collateral damage: Ji Qiwei, vice-general manager of SAIC Motor Passenger Vehicle, stated that “The domestic market may be impacted a little by the COVID-19 outbreak this year, but our export market will continue to see strong growth,” according to China Daily.

While the world continues to suffer economic and human damage as a result of COVID-19, China continues to revise history regarding its role. Through its propaganda in its English publications of Xinhua, China Daily, and Global Times, China seeks to portray itself as a benevolent force in the fight against the virus.
