Even for just the week of reporting about the shooting of Pres. Donald Trump, the mainstream media was unable to shake their anti-Republican bias - which was partly complicit in fomenting the enmity of those who rationalized the assassinating Pres. Trump.

For citizens feeling betrayed by this Obama era-justified, journalistic biased electronic and print reportage, there is Epoch Times' print, online, NTD TV Daily News and Epoch TV long-form O.T.T. news, information, and documentary programming.

From their on-location set at FreedomFest in Las Vegas, Epoch Times'
Jan Jekielek (Sr. Editor and host of "American Thought Leaders") discusses the emergence of The Epoch Times/ EpochTV in light of the persecution of 70 to 100 million Falun Gong adherents in communist China and the media's role in demonizing this group. The founding of The Epoch Times was inspired by the biased and hateful language used against this community in the mainstream media. 

Mr. Jekielek criticizes the shift towards activist journalism in the media since the Obama era, which prioritizes telling people what to think over impartial reporting.

Mr. Jekielek expresses concern about the lack of competitors in the media industry that prioritize truth and integrity, making The Epoch Times a valuable source for unbiased news in today's media landscape.


Chinese human-rights activists featured in documentarian Ben Klein's "The Exiles" respond to the Anthem Film Festival audience at FreedomFest

Chinese human-rights activists Mr. Fengsuo Zhou and Ms. Li Schoolland addressed the Anthem Film Fest last July, after documentarian Ben Klein's "The Exiles" was screened, concomitant to FreedomFest. The "exiles" from the CCP their shared experiences and insights from the Chinese democracy movement leading up to the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989.

They discussed the importance of recognizing individual identity within the Chinese community, the connection between the 1989 protests and current resistance in China, and their efforts to support political prisoners. Zhou also shared stories of dissidents who have been separated from their loved ones for decades due to their activism. The speakers emphasized the need for financial support and media awareness to help political prisoners survive and potentially secure their early release.

They also discussed the Chinese military's strict control over information leading up to the massacre and China's influence on the current administration in the United States. The tense relationship between China and the United States was also addressed, with Zhou expressing concerns about China's impact on American policy and society. Overall, the speakers highlighted the importance of international support in the fight for freedom and democracy in China.

  • 00:00:00 In this section of the YouTube video titled "The (CCP) Exiles" at Anthem Film FreedomFest '23, Fengsuo Zhou and Ms. Li Schoolland share their experiences during the Chinese democracy movement leading up to the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989. Fengsuo Zhou, a student leader, recounts watching his classmates die on the streets and being surprised to find himself on the Chinese government's most wanted list. He felt proud of his new identity as the voice of the movement and was the first to arrive and last to leave Tiananmen Square during this historic time. The courage and dignity displayed by the Chinese people during this period shocked the world, and voices were heard for the first time from their own hearts.

  • 00:05:00 In this section they discuss the importance of recognizing individual identity within the Chinese community despite widespread indoctrination. Zhou shares his experience of the US government's complicity in the Tiananmen Square massacre, as former President Bush sent a special envoy to comfort the Chinese government leader, D, acknowledging guilt and collusion. This year, the Biden administration sent a high-ranking official to Beijing on the anniversary without mentioning human rights, normalizing the massacre. Zhou condemned this and was censored in both Chinese and English media, but Reuters reported on his comments. The documentary also highlights a message of hope, as one of the main characters, the founder of a famous Chinese private company, started a protest on Suon Bridge last year, which lasted only 30 minutes but was broadcasted worldwide, demonstrating the power of individual action.

  • 00:10:00 In this section they discuss the connection between the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests and current resistance in China. Zhou shares his surprise that the Su on Bridge, a symbol of the protests, still exists and recounts the heroic protest of an individual student during the event. He also mentions the inspiration young protesters draw from the past, with many calling themselves "my duty groups." Zhou then shares the story of an unnamed woman who climbed a tower in Beijing on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, holding an American flag and distributing flyers advocating for China to be a country where people want to stay. Despite the risks, there is growing resistance in China, and organizations like the one Zhou works for have been providing support to political prisoners for decades. The speakers express the privilege and inspiration they find in working with these courageous individuals.

  • 00:15:00 In this section they shares stories of dissidents, including War Ki and Li, who have not seen their loved ones for decades due to their commitment to fighting for freedom and democracy in China. War Ki's last encounter with his father was the day before the June 4th Massacre, when the Chinese government forced his father to beg him to give up his fight. Both War Ki and Li, along with many other freedom fighters, have paid a high price for their activism and have not seen their loved ones for 30-36 years. Fengsuo Zhou, the Executive Director of Human Rights in China, which was founded in 1989 to promote human rights in China, also mentions his other organization, Humanitarian China, which supports political prisoners in China by providing them with financial assistance and raising awareness of their situations.

  • 00:20:00 In this section, Fengsuo Zhou discusses his humanitarian work in supporting political prisoners in China. He mentions his involvement in the Tiananmen Museum in Manhattan, which showcases items with personal stories, and invites visitors for a tour. Additionally, he introduces Liberty Liberty Sculpture Park in Southern California, where the first and only CCP virus sculpture was erected, which was later burned down in a direct attack by the CCP. Zhou emphasizes the need for financial support for these projects and explains that political prisoners in China are subjected to torture and lack basic necessities, so contributions help provide them with essentials.

  • 00:25:00 In this section filmmaker Ben Klein and the activists discuss their efforts to support political prisoners in China. Zhou shares his personal experience as a political prisoner and the challenges faced by families of prisoners, including job loss and inability to send children to school. He emphasizes the importance of both media awareness and financial assistance to help prisoners survive and potentially secure their early release. The group also shares stories of soldiers who refused to go against students during the Tiananmen Square protests, with one famous general refusing to carry out orders and facing consequences as a result.

  • 00:30:00 In this section they discuss the Chinese military's strict control over information leading up to the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989. Li, a journalist, was beaten and outstretched her badge to identify herself to soldiers, but she preferred to die than be identified as a dissident. The military had been isolated from news and propaganda for a month before being ordered to confront students at the square. Soldiers were told the students were anti-communist and damaging China, and they were forbidden from watching TV, listening to radio, or reading anything but the military newspaper. American entrepreneurs have been reluctant to financially support dissidents due to fear of endangering business opportunities, especially in industries like the NBA, Nike, and Hollywood, which heavily rely on the Chinese market. Despite this, Zhou believes more help is needed from the American business community to support dissidents.

  • 00:35:00 In this section they discuss the influence of China on the current administration in the United States. Zhou points out that the presence of the National Guard around the capital for months, reminiscent of Chinese-style control, raises concerns about China's impact. He believes China's authoritarian model, which prioritizes control over individual freedom, has appeal to many people around the world. The COVID-19 policies of the Trump Administration were also influenced by China's approach, according to Zhou. He emphasizes the need to change the US policy towards China, with bipartisan support, and mentions the newly formed CCP committee in the US Congress as a positive step. Zhou also questions what the American policy should be towards China, suggesting peaceful coexistence while addressing human rights abuses and avoiding collusion through investments.

  • 00:40:00 In this section they discuss the tense relationship between China and the United States. Zhou explains that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) views the United States as a top enemy and openly educates children to hate the US. He shares personal experiences of being beaten by CCP supporters while American authorities looked on. The CCP's influence extends to the Chinese community in the US, with police stations reportedly being used to intimidate Chinese citizens. The protesters were initially mobilized during the collapse of communism globally in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with their goal being to form a national solidarity against the CCP. Despite the challenges, Zhou applauds the FBI for recent efforts to address these issues.

  • 00:45:00 In this section ,dissidents Fengsuo Zhou, Li Schoolland, and Ben Klein discuss the global context of the student movement in China, inspired by the Solidarity Union in Poland. Zhou shares his belief that the communist regime is against human nature and highlights the importance of international organizations in bringing change. He mentions the significant number of VPN users in China, who follow messages from the free world and represent a free channel, leading to protests. Zhou emphasizes that the fight for freedom is not just for the Chinese people but for everyone, as China poses a significant threat to the human race. The speakers express their appreciation to the audience for their support in the fight for freedom.


UCLA campus IslamoMarxists belie their professed utopianism by heckler-vetoing historian Robert Spencer's lesson about Palestine

UCLA alumnus, Rabbi Parry, rebukes both the IslamiMarxist mob's leaders, as well as UCLA administrators for kowing to them to deny the Y.A.F. club attendees their pre-scheduled educational session from Robert Spencer.

Robert Spencer lecturing at UCLA in 2019
The UCLA chapter of Young Americans for Freedom reported that UCLA administration last-minute locked-out their scheduled club-guest presentation by Islamism/political-Islam expert, Robert Spencer. A loud march by IslamoMarxist protesters was held on May 15th, the day Arabs designated to draw attention to their offensive war against Israeli independence in 1948).

The march started at the site of the (now uprooted) encampment, past the Ackerman Union building at which the lecture was scheduled to be held.

Robert Spencer, director of JihadWatch.com (and author of numerous books) reacted to the college administrators locking-out him, his hosts, and audience. He told us, "UCLA has proven once again that our universities are not centers of higher learning, but radioactive wastelands of far-left-indoctrination - that are run by fascists - and that train fascists - who cannot stand the light of truth to be shone on their activities."

Mr. Spencer spoke about the Islamist crusade to dominate Western Civilization at the American Freedom Alliance forum in L.A. in 2023. Spencer teaches about the Islamist imperialist movement to dominate Western societies, including Israel, Europe, and the Americas.

UCLA alumnus, Rabbi Moshe Parry explains his frustration at the administration's capitulation to the Marxists to pre-empt the historian, Mr. Spencer. 


The demonstrators returned to the site of their (now removed) encampment in front of the Royce Hall stairs - to rally their effective censoring of the critical scholar's teaching opportunity.

Mark Levin pays homage to Christian-Americans for opposing Islamo-Marxist anti-Zionism, anti-Americanism

The 2024 Conservative Political Action Committee ("CPAC") Convention presented a session radio and Fox News Channel broadcaster, Mark Levin, accompanied by his wife, Julie Strauss-Levin, with a standing ovation.
Mr. Levin expressed his gratitude towards Christians for rejecting what he perceives as the Democratic Party's anti-Judeo-Christian bigotry and Islamo-Marxist ideology. He criticized Democrats for their perceived weakness towards Iran and Hamas, and accused them of being anti-Semitic for supporting the creation of a second state for Palestinians at the expense of Jewish people.

Levin also condemned Palestinian's treatment of the people they kidnapped from an Israeli music festival and defended the Israeli Defense Forces, accusing them of not condoning such acts. He emphasized the importance of the Judeo-Christian belief system in founding the United States and encouraged people to remember the sacrifices made by American soldiers, mostly White Christian men, at Arlington Cemetery
Mark & Julie Strauss-Levin, Senior Counsel America First Legal Foundation, interview Prof. Jonathan Dekel-Chen, a Connecticut-born son of a Holocaust survivor. Jonathan immigrated to Israel and resided in Kibbutz Nir Oz, inland from the Gaza Strip. The Hebrew University history professor tells the audience about the experience of Hamas-led Palestinians massacre his son Sagui's family's kibbutz and abduct Sagui, who remains in captivity.

00:00:00 In this section, Jonathan Dekel-Chen, the son of a Holocaust survivor and former resident of Kibbutz Nir Oz in Israel. Jonathan moved to Israel at the age of 18, inspired by the Zionist dream and the idea of living in a cooperative farm community. He served in the Israeli army and raised his four children on the kibbutz, which was located near the border of Gaza. The kibbutz was a highly productive agricultural farm and a paradise, as described by Jonathan. However, on October 7, 1985, while Jonathan was in the United States for a wedding, his kibbutz was attacked by terrorists from Hamas, who kidnapped his two adult children. Jonathan was woken up early by a friend who had seen the news and was devastated by the betrayal of the terrorist organization that had infiltrated their peaceful community.

In this section, Jonathan recounts the harrowing experience of a Hamas terrorist attack during which his ex-wife and their children were kidnapped. The chaos began around 12:30 PM on a day when border tensions were high. His grown son, Sagui, who was also part of the security team, noticed that civilian first responders were no longer responding to calls for help. Jonathan was unable to contact his son and his son's wife, who were seven months pregnant with two young girls. His ex-wife, one of two women from the kibbutz who managed to escape captivity, was taken away with a group of women and children on a stolen tractor. An Israeli Apache helicopter intervened, but friendly fire resulted in the death of a friend.

Jonathan's son, Sagui, had woken up early that morning to work on a pet project and saw a large group of well-armed Hamas terrorists moving through the kibbutz. For two hours, the residents defended their community against the attackers, but they were eventually overwhelmed. Sagi had gone back to his home to ensure his family's safety and was taken captive around 9:30 AM on October 7th. He has not been heard from since.

In this section, Jonathan Israel, shares the harrowing experience of his daughter Avital, experience of the kidnapping of her husband, and other community members by Palestinian Muslim abductors. While some hostages were discovered alive in tunnels under Gaza in late November, 80 people were taken captive, and 40 were murdered on October 7th. Avital's home was destroyed, and her community was looted and burned. She gave birth to a healthy baby girl during this time, but her husband was not present. Jonathan
lost 34 members of his extended family on October 7. He said that day, Hamas won, but Israel and the rest of the world cannot let Hamas win in the long term
Julie urges everyone to visit the website www.BringThemHome.com to learn how they can help and support the families of the hostages. Jonathan expresses his concern that the Israeli government is not prioritizing the lives of the hostages as much as they should and emphasizes the importance of both securing their release and destroying Hamas. .


Recognizing Marxism and Communism - Dr. Bradley Thayer at A.F.A. 3-part Forum Series

Dr. Bradley Thayer & Dr. Karen Siegemund at American
Freedom Alliances' "The War on Practically Everybody"

At American Freedom Alliances' "The War on Practically Everybody" in Los Angeles, Dr. Karen Siegemund and Dr. Bradley Thayer (a Senior Fellow at the Center for Security Policy) discuss the influence of Marxist ideas on American politics, specifically within the Democratic Party. They argue that this ideology, which seeks to undermine traditional democratic political identity, has been spread through popular culture, literature, and Hollywood.

Drs. Thayer and Siegemund explain that this is not just a feminist issue but a deeply Marxist one, with the feminist movement being a part of the broader Marxist movement. Dr. Thayer also discusses the evolution of Communism from Marx's ideas to the broader movement we see today, including in the Democratic Party.

The speakers argue that Communism's core ideas include the employment of class as a tool to study history and the intent to overthrow middle-class life and democratic politics. Thayer also mentions key individuals like Lenin, Stalin, and Mao Zedong who added to the movement's ideology.

Dr. Thayer expresses concern over the human rights abuses and potential collusion between the Chinese government and US public health authorities during the COVID-19 pandemic. He calls for transparency and accountability and warn of the tactics Communists use to undermine freedoms. He also discusses the challenges of spreading information and alternative narratives, particularly regarding the Chinese Communist Party, and the importance of individuals becoming critical thinkers.

The conversation then shifts to national security issues, including the large number of military-age men entering the United States from countries like China and Iran, who may be acting as agents of terrorism and committing sabotage, assassinations, and election interference. Thayer argues that this issue is not being recognized or understood as a major political issue but could lead to domestic terrorism and a "cyber Pearl Harbor" attack. He emphasizes the importance of individual political participation and engagement to counteract potential government-inflicted problems.
