    CNN's Jake Tapper has been accused of 'kowtowing to the new bosses' and deliberately steering his program to the right, in a bid to win over CEO Chris Licht. Tapper, the network's lead Washington anchor, was rewarded on Thursday by being named as the replacement for Chris Cuomo at the coveted 9pm primetime slot. Tapper's new job begins on October 10, and will run for a month - but insiders believe he will likely become the permanent host. Viewers and insiders noted that the 53-year-old had become decidedly more right wing, which they said was designed to appeal to Licht - who has said he wants to make the network less left-leaning and opinionated. 'Tapper is trying to survive,' said a media source, speaking to The New York Post. 'He's kowtowing to his bosses.' Another added: 'He's very ambitious,' describing him as 'very hard-working' with a 'healthy ego.' Jake Tapper, CNN's lead Washington anchor, will take over the 9pm slot from Chris Cuomo, who was forced from the network in December Since taking the helm, Chris Licht (pictured), who headed...
    "There's no rule you're violating now, to me, you know," Silver said. "I think it's also... look, at the end of the day, we're also a business." Wall Street hedge-fund billionaire, big-time Hillary Clinton financial supporter, and Milwaukee Bucks owner Marc Lasry says kowtowing to China's demands is "business." "China's taken a very aggressive stance, which is, 'Hey if you want to b***h about us, you're out.' Right? Which is – I get it," Lasry said. "It's business. So, their view is you wanna be in our country and do things. If you want to complain about us, you’re not allowed. So what happens for the NBA is the NBA's in a box.” Freedom reacted to the leaked audio by the NBA execs. "This is the evidence of how a 100% American-made company is run by the Chinese dictatorship," Freedom told host Tucker Carlson. "And wake up America. This is the league that you have been supporting and watching. Enough is enough. And this is unacceptable." "It's just sad to see how these people still can lie...
    "The Biden Administration’s decision to allow more flights into Cuba will only enrich the pockets of the communist dictators who have trampled on the rights of Cubans for decades. Biden should stop kowtowing to dictators throughout our hemisphere and start standing for freedom," DeSantis tweeted on Thursday. \u201cThe Biden Administration\u2019s decision to allow more flights into Cuba will only enrich the pockets of the communist dictators who have trampled on the rights of Cubans for decades. \n\nBiden should stop kowtowing to dictators throughout our hemisphere and start standing for freedom.\u201d — Ron DeSantis (@Ron DeSantis) 1657820258 GOP Sen.

    MSNBC anchor Katy Tur called out the National Basketball Association and Hollywood on Tuesday for “kowtowing to China.” Tur mentioned China’s relationship with Russia amid the latter’s invasion of Ukraine. During Katy Tur reports, she said: China is embracing Russia at least politically speaking and embracing the idea that Russia’s the victim here but they’re not doing as much trade. I wonder, is it better for the U.S. to react by trying to keep some relationship with China or is it better to pull away even further? And I also wonder about our American corporations. I mean, I wonder about the NBA kowtowing to China. I wonder about Hollywood kowtowing to China, taking off the Taiwan patch from Tom Cruise’s jacket in the remake of Top Gun, etc. How do you navigate those relationships with this world order that we’re currently in? In response, foreign policy expert Ian Bremmer called for the United States to maintain an economic relationship with China. “You do not want that fight with China as well,” he said, referring to a possible Cold War with China. “So maintaining a relationship with China, an economic relationship with China, is absolutely in America’s interest.” Watch above, via MSNBC. Have a tip we should...
    As the United States and Iran appear to be getting closer to reaching a nuclear deal, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is warning against empowering the “terrorist rogue regime," saying that the safety of the whole world is at stake. When asked by Fox’s Mark Levin on Life, Liberty & Levin on Sunday what a nuclear deal would mean for the U.S., Netanyahu said it could be the death of America and Israel because Iran would have the power to threaten whatever nation it wanted. “It would be a catastrophic development, and I choose my words carefully,” Netanyahu said, explaining that Iran wants to bring the world under its control. “That is exactly where this deal is leading. It is not preventing Iran from getting nuclear weapons. It’s going to pave their way to get nuclear weapons, and it’s paving their way with gold.” He added that the deal will give Iran a nuclear arsenal and hundreds of billions of dollars to “purvey their terror, to purvey their aggression.” “This is...
    by Philip Lenczycki   The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the termination of the China Initiative Wednesday citing agreement with Asian-American groups critical of the anti-espionage strategy. While announcing the termination of the China Initiative Wednesday, Assistant Attorney General Matthew Olsen launched the Strategy for Countering Nation-State Threats, a program aimed to counter espionage stemming from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). In addition to the high-profile December 2021 conviction of Harvard nanotechnology professor Charles Lieber, the Department of Justice website lists eight examples of successful 2021 China Initiative cases, which include crimes such as the theft of GE trade secrets, misleading global financial institutions, lying on government grant applications, illegally exporting $100,000 of U.S. goods to a Chinese military university, economic espionage against Coca-Cola, two cases involving the theft of trade secrets related to pediatric medical conditions and the illegal exportation of cesium atomic clocks. Olsen made clear to address China Initiative critics’ claims that the program had “disproportionately” targeted ethnic Chinese, and as a result was racist in nature. “We are focused on the actions of the PRC government, the Chinese Communist Party, and their agents — not the Chinese people or those...
    HBO host Bill Maher took no exception when pointing out recent celebrity actions that have bowed to China rather than stand up against its tyranny. In his "New Rule" segment on Real Time with Bill Maher, Maher slammed NBA star LeBron James, actor John Cena, and Olympic skier Eileen Gu. Maher called out Gu for choosing to represent China instead of the United States in the 2022 Winter Games. “Is that cool now to choose to represent a totalitarian police state over America?” Maher asked. “The Olympics pretends to only be about sports, but of course, the games have always been a bit of a proxy war for which country has the best system. And by choosing Team China, Eileen Gu became a living symbol of China’s triumph over the West, which wouldn’t bother me so much if I thought China had triumphed over us in the ways that really matter. But they haven’t.” Maher acknowledged the U.S. also has human rights problems but called for perspective. "Now, we do have human rights issues right...
    The HBO talk show host spotlighted the situation involving Chinese tennis player Peng Shuai who previously accused Chinese Communist Party member Zhang Gaoli of sexual assault. Shuai went missing after making the accusations. "Like that tennis player [Peng Shuai] who recently vanished for a while when she said she had been raped by a government official," Maher continued. "We do still throw too many black people in jail, but perspective matters." "China has basically jailed an entire ethnic minority, the Uyghurs, a situation that both the Trump and Biden administrations have called a genocide," he noted. "America is not close to that. And it's a cynical dodge to pretend China's sins should be overlooked because we all do it. No." Maher recalled when Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said he stood with the pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong. In 2019, LeBron James said Morey was "misinformed" about calling for democracy in Hong Kong. James reportedly questioned NBA Commissioner Adam Silver as to why Morey wasn't punished for his support of pro-democracy protestors in Hong Kong, which damaged the...
    Prime Minister Boris Johnson will reportedly re-open high-level trade talks with Communist China for the first time since 2018 despite concerns over widespread human rights abuses and the British parliament declaring a genocide is being committed in Xinjiang. Trade talks between Britain and Beijing effectively collapsed in 2018 following the vicious crackdown on the pro-democracy movement in the former UK colony of Hong Kong and the imposition of the draconian national security legislation on the city, which has all but stamped out the freedoms promised to Hong Kong under the Sino-British Joint Declaration. However, according to a report from POLITICO, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has personally pushed for a reset of post-Brexit trade talks with the communist state, a government official claimed. The news outlet said that government officials are currently in talks to set up a meeting of the U.K.-China joint economic and trade committee (JETCO) to open up negotiations with Beijing, the first time such a meeting will have been held since 2018. It comes on top of reports indicating that Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak is preparing...
    “All ticketed attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination plus booster shot (if eligible), proof of negative lab-based COVID-19 PCR test within 48 hours of event, and negative antigen (rapid) test the day of the event,” read a statement from a SAG representative. The Critics Choice Awards, which air on March 13, will also require attendees to be "100 percent vaccinated" and "require a negative PCR test within 48 hours of the event." Joey Berlin, COO of the Critics Choice Association, told the outlet that he can't, in good faith, "invite people to a show where they're not going to feel safe." A report from Deadline corroborated the Reporter's story and noted that it remains unclear how large the ceremony's crowd will be. According to the report, the Los Angeles County Public Heath Department currently requires masks at all "mega-events," which are defined as having 500 attendees or more, and has stated “masks are required to be worn by everyone, 2 years age and older, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status, in ... all indoor public...
    Jake Tapper criticized Hollywood studios for censoring American films so that they adhere to China’s strict content censors on Tuesday. The CNN host announced last week he would spend a portion of his show for the duration of the Beijing Olympics highlighting the “horrors” of the county’s communist regime. “Behind the fanfare and the glamor of the upcoming Olympic Games are a lot of ugly truths that the Chinese government wants you to ignore,” Tapper said while announcing a segment called “Behind China’s Wall.” Tapper has hit China’s government for its abuses of ethnic and religious minorities, as well as its treatment of everyday citizens. He saved his criticism on Tuesday for Hollywood, which as an industry creates films with China’s strict censors in mind. Tapper noted that the jacket worn by Tom Cruise in the Top Gun sequel had been altered to remove a Taiwanese flag, and he asked author Erich Schwartzel to explain why. “In the time between the original Top Gun and this reboot, China’s box office has grown to be the biggest in the world,” said Schwartzel. “And any movie produced by a Hollywood studio as expensive...
    Falsely labeling the country of Taiwan as part of China will do little to improve the National Football League’s (NFL) financial prospects in the communist country, state propaganda newspaper Global Times declared on Friday. The Times was responding to a controversy erupting this week when the NFL announced a series of international partnerships meant to promote the popularity of American football. While football remains America’s most popular sport at home, it has made no significant progress in constructing a global fanbase and, to that end, the NFL announced it had designated special markets for its teams to generate energy behind them. In the announcement, the NFL published a map showing that it assigned the Los Angeles Rams the entire nation of China as its “international home marketing area.” The map of China, highlighted in red to show it is part of the program, incorrectly including the island of Taiwan. The inclusion was particularly egregious in light of exclusions of legitimate offshore territories of other countries, most prominently Spain.

    Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., slammed President Biden for "kowtowing to the far-left" on crime during "The Story with Martha MacCallum" Wednesday, arguing the "modern" Democratic Party is "anti-cop." SEN. LINDSAY GRAHAM: …The Biden five point plan will not address the rise in murder and vicious assaults in this country. We have a lack of prosecution and we've declared war on the police. And that is backfiring on those who have done it. BIDEN'S DELICATE DANCE ON COMBATING CRIME SURGE AND DELIVERING CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM … People are being stabbed. You have city parks being taken over with drugs. You have rampant shoplifting. You have brazen in the middle of the day attacks. You have a reduction in police capability. You have cops afraid to actually, you know, enforce the law because they may go to jail. So the liberal left has created this problem. And the Joe Biden of the 70s, who was tough on crime, no longer exist. Joe Biden today is kowtowing to the most radical people in this country on border security and crime. CLICK HERE TO GET...
                      by Newt Gingrich  This past week marked the 32nd anniversary of the Tiananmen massacre. On June 4, 1989, pro-democracy protesters gathered in Tiananmen Square in Beijing for peaceful demonstrations. Led by students, the demonstrators denounced China’s ruling Communist Party and sought greater freedoms for the Chinese people. In response, the Communist Party sent the military to crush the protests. The Chinese government has never released any figures, but we know the People’s Liberation Army massacred anywhere from several hundred to several thousand people. It was a horrifying display of brutality. Yet the business lobby’s response in the United States was essentially to ignore what happened and move forward with engaging China. The calculation was simple: While the massacre was despicable, the Chinese market was simply going to be too big to pass up. The business community’s reaction to the Tiananmen massacre is characteristic of how American corporations have dealt with China for decades. As much as the Chinese government abuses human rights and threatens American national security, the thinking goes,...
    LONDON — Amid efforts to revive the tattered 2015 Iran nuclear agreement, relatives of Europeans held in Iran say their governments are kowtowing to Tehran. In recent interviews, relatives of five dual nationals and one French citizen described the efforts of European governments to end their loved ones’ detention as ineffective. Most said they felt officials had been too soft on Iran and implored them to take more assertive action to secure their relatives’ release. “I don’t know why they don’t want to call out Iran. I don’t know why their attitude towards Iran is one of appeasement rather than confrontation, because it hasn’t worked,” Sherry Izadi, the wife of Anoosheh Ashoori, a British Iranian prisoner, said recently by phone from London, referring to the British government. “Why not call this hostage-taking?” Izadi has not seen her husband, a retired engineer, for nearly four years after he was arrested while on a trip to Iran in August 2017.

            by Anne Hendershott  If anyone was hoping that the return of the long-awaited Major League season would lift our spirits and bring us together, they had to be disappointed to learn that we are more divided than ever over the National Anthem kneeling debate. And although President Trump has not chosen to join the burgeoning #BoycottMLB movement on Twitter, the president has joined a growing number of disheartened baseball fans who are unhappy that their favorite teams are taking the knee. Even before the start of the season, President Trump tweeted that he was “looking forward to live sports, but any time I witness a player kneeling during the National Anthem, a sign of great disrespect for our Country and our Flag, the game is over for me!” This is not a small issue. Rasmussen released a new poll of 1,000 Americans which indicates that “Americans are sending more negative signals than positive ones over the decision by many professional sports organizations to promote the controversial Black Lives Matter movement.” The poll, released on July 31, revealed that...
    The United States’ top law enforcement official slammed Hollywood studios and American tech firms for “kowtowing” to Beijing on Thursday, the latest in a coordinated series of speeches from senior US officials attacking the actions and ambitions of the Chinese government. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was seeking to “extend its influence around the world, including on American soil,” said US Attorney General William Barr during a China policy-related address at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Michigan. “All too often, for the sake of short-term profits, American companies have succumbed to that influence, even at the expense of freedom and openness in the United States,” said Barr. Singling out Marvel Studios, a Disney subsidiary, Barr pointed to its 2016 production of Doctor Strange, which switched the ethnicity of a monk in the original comics from Tibetan to Celtic. One of the film’s screenwriters said in an interview following its release that casting the character as a Tibetan would have risked “alienating one billion people” and risked causing the government in China to ban the film’s screening there. “Chinese...
    The US lawyer normal, William Barr, has assailed the Walt Disney Business and Hollywood studios, accusing them of “kowtowing” to the Chinese Communist social gathering. Barr’s allegations are part of a sustained diplomatic and community relations offensive by the Trump administration in opposition to Beijing, which the legal professional common accused of participating in “economic blitzkrieg – an aggressive, orchestrated, total-of-federal government (in truth, entire-of-modern society) marketing campaign to seize the commanding heights of the worldwide financial system and to surpass the United States as the world’s pre-eminent superpower”. In a speech in Michigan, Barr railed versus US company leaders whom he accused of abetting China’s hegemonic aims, particularly in the film field. He said Disney experienced to begin with resisted Chinese force not to make the 1997 movie Kundun, about the Dalai Lama and the Beijing’s annexation of Tibet. “But that instant of bravery would not previous extended,” Barr mentioned. China banned Disney movies, top to an apology from the corporation for earning Kundun. The administration then lobbied China to construct a Disneyland in Shanghai, letting Chinese officials to...
    Attorney General William Barr said Thursday the Chinese government has achieved a “massive propaganda coup” by shaping the content coming out of Hollywood, while warning U.S. business executives against acting as agents of the communist regime in possible violation of foreign lobbying laws. Speaking at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library, Barr offered a sober assessment of China’s efforts to “raid” U.S. companies and institutions with a goal of becoming the world’s lone superpower. Barr went through several examples of movie studios and tech companies caving into pressure from Beijing to censor content that paints China in a negative light. Barr pointed to the movie “World War Z,” which originally included a scene showing that the origins of a zombie apocalypse originated in China. Paramount Pictures ordered the scene removed from the movie at the request of Chinese authorities. “This is a massive propaganda coup for the Chinese Communist Party,” Barr said. “Hollywood is far from alone in kowtowing to the PRC. America’s big tech companies have also allowed themselves to become pawns of Chinese influence.” Barr detailed steps that...
    Attorney General William Barr gave a speech on Thursday condemning China for its actions at home and abroad and accusing Hollywood, Big Tech, and other U.S. companies of “kowtowing” to Beijing. Barr, who has increasingly spoken about the national security threat posed by Chinese espionage and Chinese telecommunication groups such as Huawei, delivered remarks at the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum warning about the dangers posed by China’s global ambitions. “If what happened in China stayed in China, that would all be bad enough. But instead of America changing China, China is leveraging its economic power to change America,” Barr said. “The [Chinese Communist Party] seeks to extend its influence around the world, including on American soil … All too often, for the sake of short-term profits, American companies have succumbed to that influence, even at the expense of freedom and openness in the United States. Sadly, examples of American business bowing to Beijing are legion.” Barr pointed to Hollywood as a prime example. “Hollywood actors, producers, and directors pride themselves on celebrating freedom and the human...
    It is 2020 and our streets are packed with protesters demanding that “Black Lives Matter!” But for Donald Trump and his Republican Party, it is still Richard Nixon’s 1968 of law and order. But for the past several years, our technology has enabled us to see first-hand what law and order can mean. Too often, it is a dog whistle for blatant racism and a two-tiered system of justice. Donald Trump faces declining poll numbers and a need to shore up his base. What if he attempts to assert himself in a way that abuses his position of commander in chief? There is a good chance that between now and the election, we may find ourselves at the U.S. Supreme Court. While we are a nation of laws, the recent history of the Supreme Court offers little comfort that it will side with the powerless and the oppressed. John Roberts, our current chief justice, clerked for and was mentored by the previous chief justice, the late William Rehnquist. Except for the progressive period of the Warren Court, the Supreme Court...
