NLPC filed a major complaint with the Department of Education earlier last year demanding that the University of Pennsylvania and its Penn Biden Center disclose the identity of $22 million in anonymous Chinese donations since 2017, including a single eye-popping donation of $14.5 million given on May 29, 2018, shortly after the opening of the Biden Center in Washington, DC.

It began gently almost three years ago, with Fink urging several corporate CEOs in a letter to make “a positive contribution to society” beyond generating profit for shareholders, to “serve a social purpose.” The initiatives pressed most urgently addressed climate change risk and disclosure, and diversity initiatives.
The tone has gone from pleadings to threats, as outlined in BlackRock’s “2021 Stewardship Expectations,” issued a couple of weeks ago in advance of corporate annual meetings that will be held in the coming months. As reported by investment equity law firm Ropes & Gray, BlackRock has intensified its demands in pursuit of compliance with its priorities.

As reports increased this year that China has greatly expanded its facilities that detain and utilize Uighurs as slave labor, new evidence indicates a key supplier for Apple Inc. is using transferred workers from among the Muslim minority ethnic group.
In an article published Tuesday by the Washington Post, the Tech Transparency Project revealed documents that indicate the Chinese government is transporting involuntary laborers from the region of Xinjiang – where Uighurs have been reportedly abused and undergo “re-education” to learn fealty to the communists – to a Lens Technology factory in Hunan, in central China.
The company has long manufactured cover glass for Apple’s iPhone.
Tech Transparency Project, a left-leaning nonprofit watchdog of the major Silicon Valley technology companies, based its findings in part on evidence deciphered from propaganda in Chinese media. Darren Byler, a research anthropologist … Read More ➡
Last month National Legal and Policy Center reported, based on disclosure reports discovered by tech news Web site The Information, that Apple Inc. had hired a Washington lobbying firm to aid its efforts to modify the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act.
It wasn’t known at the time what influence Apple hoped to exert on the shaping of the bill, but considering the company’s extensive use of Chinese labor to assemble its products and their parts, the suspicion was that it hoped to ease any restrictions and penalties.
Now, two anonymous Congressional sources cited by the Washington Post say that Apple does want the legislation watered down.
The Act seeks to force companies to ensure that they or their suppliers do not use coerced labor from the persecuted Muslim Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region of China. The people group has reportedly been subjected to persecution, … Read More ➡
From FoxNews.com by Fred Lucas:
Antony Blinken has had a long history with Joe Biden before the president-elect tapped him to be his secretary of state nominee—as a Biden Senate aide, an advisor to the then-vice president and deputy secretary of state during the Obama administration.
But it could be a non-federal role — one also closely tied to Biden — that will raise a question in his Senate confirmation hearings regarding how America’s next chief diplomat will handle China.
Blinken served as the managing director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, also known as the Penn Biden Center, established in 2017. He left that position in 2019 to join the Biden campaign.
In May, the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), a government watchdog group, filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education seeking to force the university and the Penn Biden … Read More ➡

NLPC today called upon Tony Blinken, Joe Biden’s pick to be Secretary of State, to explain the anonymous Chinese funding of the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement that Joe Biden established in 2018, where Blinken was Managing Director.
