FCC Commissioner Accepts China’s Offer; Asks To Speak With Missing Coronavirus Whistleblowers

Published

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr is asking China’s communist government to give him permission to speak with the many disappeared citizen journalists who sounded early alarms on the severity of the coronavirus outbreak, which began in the city of Wuhan.

On Thursday, a Chinese government spokesperson suggested on Twitter that U.S. officials should visit China to experience “freedom,” and the FCC commissioner accepted the offer, adding that first he wants to speak with the brave journalists.

In a Twitter thread posted late Thursday, Carr said he would first “like to speak with Dr. Al Fen”, a doctor who worked in Wuhan’s Central Hospital, who tried to warn about the virus and quickly disappeared. His list followed with eight other brave doctors and citizens who risked their lives to save countless others, but were never to be seen again.

Carr concluded his Twitter thread with some scathing questions for the Chinese official: “does your offer still stand? Or has it suddenly disappeared as things tend to do over there?”

Carr has long been an opponent of China’s authoritarianism and has raised concerns over their influence in the U.S. and he’s now taking aim at China Telecom Corp’s which wants to implement its services in the U.S.

“It is time to reconsider our relationship with companies owned or controlled by the People’s Republic of China,” Carr said of the move in a statement Friday.

U.S. agencies, including the Department of Justice recommended Thursday that the FCC deny their operations citing “substantial and unacceptable national security and law enforcement risks associated with China Telecom’s operations.”

Experts Say United States Vulnerable to ‘Electromagnetic’ Attack by Chinese

When Joe Biden was trying to convince Americans to vote for him to become the next President back in 2019, he belittled the concept that China is a danger to the U.S. “Come on man, China’s not a threat” said Biden.

Experts, however, continue to show just how wrong Biden has always been. Fox News reports “experts are warning that the United States is vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack from adversaries such as China, and that time is running out to invest in defending the country from it.”

Last week during a virtual forum hosted by the Universal Peace Federation, Peter Vincent Pry, the executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, said “that poses a real threat of possibly being able to win a war with a single blow by means of an EMP attack.”

“Moreover…they don’t envision employing an EMP by itself. It would be used in conjunction with cyberattacks and physical sabotage, and non-nuclear EMP” added Pry. Experts also warn that while an EMP attack would be “bloodless” at first, a yearlong blackout could kill roughly 90% of the American population.

Fox News reports:

The U.S. electric grid and other infrastructure – such as communications and transportation systems and water and sewer services – could all be devastated by such an attack, experts like Pry warn, noting that time is of the essence for the U.S. to defend itself.

China already possesses “super EMPs” and last summer tested a new hypersonic glide vehicle that analysts warn could deploy the EMP and cause a long-lasting blackout that would shut down key infrastructure and cripple the military’s ability to communicate.

A Pentagon report on Chinese military capabilities details how China has invested heavily in its EMP program, with a strategy that “emphasizes suppressing, degrading, disrupting or deceiving enemy electronic equipment throughout the continuum of a conflict while protecting its ability to use the cyber and electromagnetic spectrum.”

“The PLA is likely to use electronic warfare early in a conflict as a signaling mechanism to warn and deter adversary offensive action. Potential EW targets include adversary systems operating in radio, radar, microwave, infrared and optical frequency ranges, as well as adversary computer and information systems” adds the report.
