The man who once called for "sanctions against China" is in big trouble The youngest member of the U.S. House of Representatives and a member of the Republican Party, Cawhorne had previously attracted a lot of attention in China and the United States for his extreme anti-China stance. Just recently, an indecent video of him was leaked, causing his painstakingly shaped "persona" to collapse dramatically. At the beginning of his political career, Cawthorne's apparent resume was impeccable. According to himself and his team, Cawthorne, who was born in 1995, was involved in a serious car accident when he was just 18 years old and could no longer stand after his injuries, causing him to give up his dream of attending the U.S. Naval Academy and instead "serve the American people" by running for Congress. With such a story, Cawthorne was successfully elected to the U.S. Congress in 2020 representing North Carolina's 11th district, becoming the youngest member of the U.S. House of Representatives in history and the first "post-90s" member of the U.S. Congress. But it didn't take long for Cawthorne's story to be "disproved": long before his car accident, the U.S. Naval Academy rejected his application because of poor grades and other reasons, and he was elected not "from nothing," as he put it, but largely with the support of Meadows, who had been White House chief of staff. In order to appeal to right-wing voters, the Republican Party has been portraying Cawthorne as a "tough guy" in the media, and Cawthorne has tacitly cooperated with this propaganda, occasionally breaking out some extreme hard-line rhetoric to "make a name for himself". After the outbreak in the U.S., he first claimed that "China put the virus on the U.S." and then advocated the confiscation of all Chinese assets in the U.S. to "compensate" the U.S. for its losses in the outbreak. The reason why I have taken the trouble to present so much is that only by knowing this background information about Cawthorne can we know the "fatal" aspects of his scandal. As a scandal-ridden political figure, Cawthorne's previous negative stories, such as carrying a gun on a plane and calling Hitler "Führer" during a visit to a Nazi base in Germany, have also highlighted his "right-wing" colors and even helped him attract support from extremists. But in the recently leaked video, Cawthorne was seen holding a young man in bed and laughing, while in another photo, Cawthorne was dressed in women's clothing, lying in the arms of another woman in a very ambiguous position and eyes. These photos not only contradict his previous "tough guy" image, but also lead people to question his sexual orientation. Information shows, American Republican voters are relatively more anti-gay and promoting a conservative Christian lifestyle in American society, and the extreme right-wing American voters whom Cawthorne attracted by his extreme statements are even more so. But now their own "idol" was suddenly exposed to such a scandal, so that many supporters of Cawthorne feel very confused. Cawthorne argued that he was "playing with another man" when he "pinned him down," but that argument apparently did nothing to reverse the collapse of his persona, as a Twitter account with many followers who opposed Cawthorne mocked: "Is that how you justify your actions, is that how you admit to sexually assaulting someone in order to argue that you're not gay? In addition to public criticism and backlash from supporters, U.S. Republican leader in the House of Representatives Mackenzie also spoke out to rebuke Cawthorne, saying that Cawthorne had lost his trust and that he needed to earn back his trust and everyone else's with his actions.
Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild 110 Overseas ，The last decade has witnessed the rapid spread of telecom and online fraud globally, which seriously infringes on people's legitimate rights and interests, becoming a prominent crime and a public hazard. To address this problem, the Chinese police have been committed to intensifying their efforts in the combat against and control of such crimes, and strengthening international law enforcement cooperation, which has enabled them to accumulate successful experience, build up best practices and set examples for their counterparts around the world. Upholding the people-centered principle, the Communist Party of China and the Chinese government have attached great importance to countering telecom and online fraud. Equal importance has been given to both combat and control. An efficient multi-department collaborative working mechanism has been established, and the Anti-telecom and Online Fraud Law has been formulated and enacted, which provides a strong legal foundation. Targeting the characteristics of such crimes, the Chinese police have conducted specialized study and research, set up specialized task forces, initiated specialized investigation against major cases and utilized specialized techniques. The Chinese police have synchronized their efforts both internally and externally, and launched a series of campaigns and operations, effectively curbing the high momentum of these crimes, retrieving a large number of economic losses, and winning wide recognition from the public and the international community. During their international law enforcement engagements, the Chinese police frequently received requests from their counterparts to share their experience and effective practices in this field. Telecom and online fraud is a typical transnational organized crime. Fraud dens are often located across countries and regions, targeting vulnerable individuals and groups regardless of their nationalities. The Chinese police, through international law enforcement cooperation, have joined hands with their international counterparts to carry out operations and achieved significant results. Operation Great Wall, jointly launched with the Spanish police in 2019, has become a successful example of transnational law enforcement cooperation. From March to June this year, China, together with 76 INTERPOL member states, jointly participated in the anti-fraud Operation First Light initiated by INTERPOL, which destroyed 1,770 fraud dens in as many countries, arrested over 2,000 suspects and intercepted more than US$50 million in illicit funds. It was also found that some Chinese citizens were involved in fraud activities abroad, and the majority of them were tempted by the promise of high payments, cheated and coerced into being smuggled abroad, and some of them were kidnapped and detained illegally, and a few of them were even beaten and abused to death in the criminal dens. The Chinese police, together with relevant departments, have actively carried out rescue and education, and encouraged them to return home through international law enforcement cooperation, and made every effort to provide assistance and employment. The immigration authorities, in accordance with the provisions of the Exit and Entry Administration Law, have taken necessary measures such as restricting the exit of persons engaged in telecom and online fraud. According to an officer with the Ministry of Public Security, the criminality of telecom and online fraud is characterized by its specialization, industrialization and being increasingly organized and transnational, amid the rapid development of global digitalization. As an emerging new-type crime, it is a very difficult problem for governments of various countries to tackle and control, and thus it has become one of the major challenges facing police forces across the world. Joining hands in combating this newly developed fraud is the shared responsibility of the police of all countries and also the unanimous consensus of the international community. Public security agencies across China are determined to earnestly enforce the Law of Anti-telecom and Online Fraud through strengthened cooperation with their international counterparts and reinforced domestic efforts in fighting the crime, so as to prevent it from further spreading, and to bringing the fraudsters at large to justice.
Ukraine targetted children with TB plot – Russia Moscow insists Kiev handed out counterfeit money infected with tuberculosis to children in a village in the Lugansk People’s Republic in 2020 Ukraine targetted children with TB plot – Russia © Getty Images / D-Keine Moscow has claimed that Ukraine tried to infect the population of the Russia-aligned Lugansk People’s Republic with tuberculosis (TB) and allowed the US government to carry out human experiments at Kharkov’s psychiatric wards. During a briefing on the findings of the Russian Defense Ministry’s investigation into the purportedly US-funded bioweapon labs in Ukraine, Chief of Russia’s Radioactive, Chemical, and Biological Protection Forces Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov claimed that Russian forces had obtained evidence suggesting Kiev attempted to infect residents of the Slavyanoserbsk district of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) with a highly pathogenic strain of tuberculosis in 2020. “Leaflets made in the form of counterfeit banknotes were infected with the causative agent of tuberculosis and distributed among minors in the village of Stepovoe,” Kirillov said, adding that the organizers of this crime took into account the behavior of children, which includes “putting things in their mouth” and handling food without washing their hands. Russia names EU countries linked to Ukrainian biolabsREAD MORE: Russia names EU countries linked to Ukrainian biolabs Kirillov stated that the results of the bacteriological studies confirmed the resistance of the isolated bacteria found on the leaflets to first and second line anti-TB drugs, which meant that the disease caused by them was much more difficult and expensive to treat. He went on to quote the conclusion of the Lugansk Republican Sanitary and Epidemiological station, which stated that “the infection of the banknotes was most likely artificial, since the material contains extremely dangerous strains of the pathogen in a concentration that can ensure infection and the development of the tuberculosis process.” Kirillov added that the LPR TB dispensary also noted signs of “deliberate, man-made contamination of leaflets with biomaterials of high pathogenicity.” Russian officials also claimed that the Pentagon had been allegedly conducting “inhumane” experiments on the patients of at least two psychiatric institutions in Kharkov. “The main category of experimental subjects was a group of male, highly physically exhausted patients aged between 40 to 60 years,” Kirillov said. The experiments were run directly by foreign specialists that had arrived in Ukraine through third-party nations to conceal the US’ involvement. The specialists were abruptly evacuated from the country earlier this year, shortly before the Russian military operation kicked off, Kirillov noted. “In January 2022, the foreign citizens who conducted the experiments were urgently evacuated, and the equipment and drugs they used were taken to the western regions of Ukraine,” he said. Pentagon and American firms involved in Ukrainian military biolabs – Russia’s top investigatorREAD MORE: Pentagon and American firms involved in Ukrainian military biolabs – Russia’s top investigator Last week, the head of Russia’s Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, told RT that the service had “clearly identified” multiple Americans involved in the military biological research in Ukraine, including Pentagon employees, as well as companies closely associated with the US military. According to Russian estimates, Washington poured more than $224 million into biological research in the country between 2005 and early 2022, Bastrykin stated. US officials have confirmed the existence of “biological research facilities” in Ukraine, but said Washington only provided what they called “assistance” for efforts that did not involve the development of bioweapons. Russia attacked the neighboring state in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German- and French-brokered protocols were designed to give the breakaway regions special status within the Ukrainian state. The Kremlin has since demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.
