A Chinese woman who pleaded guilty to federal criminal charges stemming from her operation of a ‘birth tourism’ business in California awaits imminent sentencing in the first case of its kind, according to reports.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told CNN the indictments are the “first-ever” brought by the U.S. government against a birth tourism enterprise and its customers.

“The operation Dongyuan Li ran, You Win USA Vacation Services Corp., coached families on what to say in their visa interviews, created ways for them to bypass immigration controls and housed them in upscale apartments in California for up to three months,” CNN reports. “In two years, she had received $3 million in international wire transfers from China, the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.”

Li ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit immigration fraud and one count of visa fraud, ICE announced earlier this year.

“Li was one of 19 defendants named in a series of indictments unsealed earlier this year which resulted from an massive probe by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Los Angeles and IRS Criminal Investigation,” ICE said in a press release in September.

“Li is the first of the charged operators of birth tourism businesses to plead guilty. The remaining defendants either are pending trial or are fugitives.”

You Win USA reportedly assisted over 500 Chinese clients looking to secure birthright citizenship for their children, charging between $40,000 and $80,000 per customer.

“This was extremely bold,” Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Daniel Showalter told CNN. “She said it was easy to fool us. She had nothing but disdain for the US.”

“We do need to send the message that defrauding our immigration system for profit will not be tolerated and if you do so, you do so at your own peril,” he warned. “We will prosecute you and seize your proceeds, bank accounts, vehicles, houses.”

A former NBA player was fined and given a ‘serious warning’ after he failed to properly acknowledge the Chinese flag during a pre-game national anthem ceremony.

Guerschon Yabusele, a former Boston Celtic who now plays for the Nanjing Monkey Kings in the Chinese Basketball Association, was hit with a 10,000 yuan ($1,420) fine after he was observed with head bowed during the Chinese national anthem, the Global Times reports.



Chinese law requires all citizens to gaze upon the flag in respect while the anthem is being played.

Yabusele, a French citizen, says he was praying during the moment in question, but has offered deep apologies, vowing to “show my respect during the Chinese national anthem and keep my head up for now on,” the Daily Mail reports.

“I have the same routine, I’ve been doing this my whole career and I wanted to apologize for the people that took it Personnal [sic] because it was not my point,” Yabusele wrote on social media.

The incident comes just shortly after China’s influence in the affairs of American professional basketball became much clearer amid controversy linked to protests in Hong Kong.

A single tweet of support for the Hong Kong protesters by Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey triggered a diplomatic firestorm on both sides of the Pacific, with top NBA stars and executives effectively abiding by Chinese censorship policies instead of American free speech protections.

A taxi plowed through a crowd of protesters in Hong Kong and the driver was subsequently beaten badly and hospitalized, according to reports.

The driver is suspected of intentionally ramming a mini-bus taxi into a crowd in the district of Sham Shui Po, according to local media.

“At around 5pm on Sunday, a taxi was seen driving onto the pedestrian walkway outside the Cheung Sha Wan government offices, according to videos circulating online,” Hong Kong Free Press reports. “Local media reported that the vehicle smashed a storefront and injured at least one woman.”

“The taxi was later found to have been wrecked, with its windows broken, license plate spray-painted and objects in the car scattered on the ground.”

Large crowds reportedly surrounded the taxi, attacking the driver and destroying the vehicle.

“Two girls were hit by the car and one girl was trapped between the car and a shop,” an eyewitness told AFP.

 

“On 6 Oct at around 6pm, a pro-Beijing taxi driver drove onto the pedestrian walkway, at least three people injured, a woman is in critical condition with bone fracture on both legs,” Freedom Hong Kong claims in a social media post.

Two Chinese men studying in the United States have been charged with felonies stemming from their alleged use of stolen credit cards to pay for university tuition and assorted bills.

Chunyang Li and Chenghan Wang, both 20, were arrested by University of New Hampshire (UNH) police in Durham.

Both men are from China, according to the Union Leader.

Li faces nine felony fraud charges while Wang has been charged with one felony and one misdemeanor.

Court documents reportedly indicate Li attempted to pay UNH $56,407.50 in equal sums of $6,267.50 extracted from nine separate victims from California, Virginia, Texas, New Jersey, Florida, Wisconsin, and even Australia.

Wang is suspected of charging $6,332.50 to the stolen credit card of a Maryland resident, as well as additional dues owed to the school on a separate occasion.

“According to the police affidavit filed with the court, both men said they were contacted by an unknown person via text message who stated the defendants could pay for UNH tuition at a discounted rate,” Fosters reports.

“In Li’s case, there was an arrangement made for the unknown individual to pay for the tuition in exchange for 60 percent of the value of the tuition, Li told police, according to the affidavit. Wang had allegedly made arrangements for the individual to pay for tuition, car insurance, rent and other items.”

Both men have reportedly pleaded not guilty and have been released on $5,000 bond, and their passports have been seized.

The U.S. Marines seized a small Japanese island in a drill vital for an all-out war with China.

Known as Expediationary Advanced Base (EAB) Operations, the exercise is intended to enhance tactics essential to the Pacific theater, said the Corps in a Thursday statement.

“This entire mission profile simulated the process of securing advanced footholds for follow-on forces to conduct further military operations, with rapid redeployment,” said the Corps.

America practicing a modern version of the WWII-era island-hopping strategy is “very relevant,” says Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford.

“It is critical for us to be able to project power in the context of China, and one of the traditional missions of the Marine Corps is seizing advanced bases,” said Dunford. “If you look at the island chains and so forth in the Pacific as platforms from which we can project power, that would be a historical mission for the Marine Corps and one that is very relevant in a China scenario.”

The announcement of U.S. Marines conducting drills was given the same day Dunford called out Google for augmenting China’s military and artificial intelligence capabilities by doing business with them.

“[Googgle working in China] will to lead to intellectual property from that company finding its way to the Chinese military,” said Dunford. “This is about us looking at the second and third-order effects of our business ventures in China, China’s form of government, and the impact that’s going to have on the United States’ ability to maintain a competitive military advantage and all that goes with it.”

Last week, during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, Dunford forecasted a meeting with Google where he will grill the company on its ties with China and remind the tech giant that America is “the good guys.”

“In fact, the way I described it to our industry partners is: Look, we’re the good guys,” Dunford said. “And the values that we represent and the system that we represent is the one that will allow and has allowed you to thrive.”


Google has been exposed for assisting the Chinese government with their efforts to censor information on the internet. Alex breaks down how this has been on the globalists’ agenda for decades.



America’s top military officer stressed that Google’s ventures in China are aiding its military and communist regime’s ability to control its people.

Companies doing business in China are required to have a cell of the Communist Party present, said Gen. Joseph Dunford during a forum at the Atlantic Council in D.C. Thursday.

“That will to lead to intellectual property from that company finding its way to the Chinese military,” said Dunford. “This is not about me and Google.”

“This is about us looking at the second and third-order effects of our business ventures in China, China’s form of government, and the impact that’s going to have on the United States’ ability to maintain a competitive military advantage and all that goes with it.”

Last year, Google drew the ire of politicians like Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) for refusing an artificial intelligence contract with the Pentagon less than a year after starting an AI research center in China.

“All of it will be shared with the military and with the repressive forces that are doing this,” said Rubio. “[Google] doesn’t want to give AI technology to the [U.S.] military because, God forbid, we may use it someday to target a terrorist or someone who wants to harm America. But [Google] has no problem opening up a center of AI in China, knowing full well how anything you do in China — if it’s a benefit to the military, they’re going to use it; if it’s a benefit to the security services, they’re going to use it.”

Correspondingly, Dunford further expressed his concern on how China is using developments in artificial intelligence to “control” the vast majority of its people, indirectly referring to the country’s Orwellian social credit system that blacklists people based on “trustworthiness.”

“My concern when you think about things like artificial intelligence… They’re gonna help an authoritarian government assert control over its own population,” said Dunford. “What China is able to do is identify patterns of behavior amongst people and determine who’s reliable and who’s not reliable.”

“There is no question in my mind that China will leverage technology to assist the 6% of the Chinese population in controlling the other 94%.”

Coding “common sense” into artificial intelligence systems is currently a major goal for DARPA.

Interestingly, this objective is best described by getting AI to respond to new situations the way a human would, said the agency’s Defense Sciences Office director Valerie Browning to Nextgov.

“There’s a certain ability to recognize new situations, behave appropriately in new situations, [and] recognize when maybe you don’t have enough experience or training to actually function in a predictable or appropriate way for new situations,” said Browning. “We need to be able to build AI systems that have that sort of common sense wired in.”

“We need AI systems that do have some ability for introspection, so when given a task they could communicate to their partner ‘based on my training and my experience, you should have confidence in me that I could do this’ or ‘I’ve not encountered this situation before and I can’t … Perform in the way you’d like me to in this situation.’”

Brown provided an example: both a human and a machine can identify an image of a panda, but after changing a few pixels – an amount that a person wouldn’t notice – the machine would fail to identify it correctly.

“Machine learning-enabled AI does certain tasks quite well—image classification, voice recognition, natural language processing, statistical pattern recognition—but we also know AI can fail quite spectacularly in unexpected ways.”

Building “common sense reasoning” into the next generation of AI is specifically mentioned in the agency’s $2 billion campaign, AI Next, that is part of the White House’s AI strategy competing with China.

America’s race to dominate AI advancement comes on the heels of a report claiming China is projected to lead the world in AI research due to an “attractive research environment” luring AI researchers into China.

To combat this, the agency has taken up “unprecedented government contracting” allowing for “high-risk” gains in the field.

Currently, China’s Communist regime is using artificial intelligence in tandem with mass surveillance to control its billions of denizens via the infamous social credit system.
