President Donald Trump accepted an offer for comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan to moderate a presidential debate ahead of the November election. Trump’s opponent, Former Vice President Joe Biden hasn’t yet responded to Rogan’s offer.

“On my podcast with @joerogan he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump It would be four hours with no live audience,” wrote UFC fighter Tim Kennedy on Twitter Sunday night. “Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this? #debates#Election2020

Trump responded: “I do.”

A petition was also started and has amassed over 255,000 signatures in favor of Rogan’s offer. The voters who signed onto the petition say they feel disenfranchised and distrust the media, adding that Rogan is balanced and trustworthy.

Rogan has expressed worry over Biden’s mental state and has said he’d vote for Trump over the Democratic nominee simply because he believes Biden is “clearly in the throes of dementia.”

The two candidates are set to have their first debate on September 29. In the meantime, it remains to be seen whether a Joe Rogan debate would actually come to fruition.

“If they wanted to do that, they both wanted to come here in Austin, sit down and have a debate, I would 100% do it. I would 100% do it,” Rogan said.

He added, “It would be the best way to find out, but I don’t think that Biden can handle that… I mean people get mad at me for saying this, I think there’s something wrong. And I don’t think there’s something wrong because I’m guessing or because I’m pro-Trump. I’ve seen him fall apart. He’s had multiple brain surgeries.”

REPORT: China has vast network of covert police stations around the world

China has a vast network of covert police stations abroad, according to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, an NGO that focuses on human rights violations in China and other Asian countries. These police stations serve consular functions, but are also used by China to crack down on what the CCP deems “illegal” activity of Chinese nationals abroad. The police stations include at least 38 run by the Fuzhou City police, and 22 run by the Qingtian City police. Cities housing these police stations include New York, Toronto (which has three stations), London (two), Paris (three), Buenos Aires, Rio De Janeiro, and Tokyo.

Key findings of the report are below.

“Persuaded to return”

According to China, China has “persuaded to return [to China]” 230,000 Chinese nationals living aboard from April 2021 to July 2022 alone to face charges of fraud and telecommunications fraud. A Yangxia police station set up in Mozambique, for example, persuaded a Chinese national to return to China after being accused of stealing money from his employer. Chinese authorities also put pressure on the accused family to convince the accused to surrender.

Roughly 54,000 Chinese nationals were persuaded to return from northern Myanmar alone, in the first nine months of 2021. In July 2022, the government of Wenchang City warned that its citizens living in northern Myanmar must check in with their local police stations or face multiple penalties including blocking their children from attending urban schools back in China. Similarly, in February 2022, the government of Liayang City stated that Chinese “illegally staying” in northern Myanmar must return or the bank accounts of their immediate family members could be frozen.

The Nine Forbidden Countries

China has claimed that nine countries contain serious levels of fraud and telecom fraud perpetrated by Chinese nationals. Since November 2021, China has declared that Chinese citizens living in these nine countries must return to China immediately unless they have an “emergency reason” or a “strict necessity” to travel or stay in those countries. Those countries are: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the UAE, and Turkey. However, the report questions whether these countries are truly awash in such fraud, as most of China’s oversees police stations are in the West, and only one of the nine countries (Cambodia) has such a police station. Chinese staying in the nine forbidden countries, as well as threats to family members as stated above, creates a “guilt-by-association” atmosphere intended to repatriate the Chinese nationals.

Conclusion

According to the report, Chinese police stations abroad serve to bypass “bilateral extradition treaties or other mechanisms of judicial cooperation” to cooperate with CCP-linked NGOs which effectively “[sets] up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries.” Instead of using international judicial cooperation, which establishes due process, the presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair trial, China uses the above “persuade-to-return” methods and transnational police stations to circumvent international law and coerce Chinese nationals to return to China for trials. These policies show the power of China’s long-arm oppression over its own subjects.
