The anonymous Chinese donors who contributed more than $22 million to the Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania still have not been revealed, with less than a week to go till Election Day.

The National Legal and Policy Center has repeatedly pressed the university to divulge where the anonymous gifts came from. The NLPC also filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education flagging the donations, which it contends must be tied to a source under a federal law that requires universities to disclose any donations over $250,000.

Despite these efforts to uncover the source of the donations, the identities remain under wraps. According to the NLPC, the Education Department said it will not force the Biden Center to disclose the donor list.

  1. Biden Caught 11 Times by Fact-Checkers Stating False Claims

    Democratic candidate Joe Biden has been struck down 11 times by fact-checkers over claims he has made during this coronavirus crisis.
    Between the three weeks of March 13 and April 3rd, Biden was caught 5 separate times for false and misleading claims regarding Trump’s administration of the current pandemic response.
    Due to these claims, Biden has earned himself four Pinocchios from the Washington Post’s fact-checking team. If you’re not familiar with the Washington Post’s ratings, this is considered their most harsh rating. This was the direct result of two highly manipulated videos that stemmed from the Bidens campaign.
    The first manipulating video was making it appear as if Trump was calling the coronavirus a fallacy. The video clip was taken out of its original context as the video’s original context refers to the Democrats attempt to blame him for the virus rather than the virus itself.
    The second video from Biden’s campaign that was fact-checked by the Washington Post was about Trump saying the phrase “the American Dream is dead.” The sound bite was removed from the second half of his statement, where he promised to “bring it back bigger and stronger than ever before.”
    Biden earned another four Pinocchios after his advisor, Ron Klain, blamed Trump for silencing Dr. Nancy Messonnier of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
    Despite the fake news of Trump claiming the silencing of “government scientists,” Messonnier routinely holds phone briefings with reporters after raising concerns about the virus at Trump’s press conference.
    Washington Post Fact-checker Glenn Kessler states that the idea Messonnier was silenced is a “false narrative.”
    Biden gained 3 more Pinocchios from the incorrect language used during the CNN town hall on March 27. He claims Trump had eliminated the White House Pandemic office, did not try to put pressure on the Chinese president Xi Jinping during the outbreak, and cut back on CDC staff in China before the outbreak. Biden went as far as to add that he had attempted to have China allow in medical experts from the United States. This was while the outbreak was in its early stages.
    Fact-checkers from the Washington Post corrected Biden as the Trump and Pence administration actually did seek access for the CDC experts to enter China. They even offered help to slow the spread of the outbreak during the early stages. Biden did call for experts, but it was not until late February, far later than claimed.
    Biden has been fact-checked for the attempts to use expressive and persuasive speech.
    Biden also corrected the Democratic presidential debate that happened on March 15th. He claims that Trump refused coronavirus testing kits from the World Health Organization. However, that could not be true as the coronavirus testing kits were never offered to begin with. Ironically, CNN originally claimed this to be factual but soon retracted after the Washington Free Beacon released a report.
    Lastly, Biden gets fact-checked by the Washington Post fact-checking team to have overstated a tweet released on March 19, where he states that Trump “eliminated” the pandemic response team. The fact-checking team found this claim to be false. What really happened was that the global health directorate was merged into another office under the direction of John Bolton, a former national security advisor. The fact-checking team cited it as a “dueling narrative” without a punishing rating to Biden’s claim.
    As the Democratic candidates strive to win the Presidency, it is helpful to add some highlights to the fact-checked claims over the course of Joe Biden’s campaign so far.

  2. (TheFreedomFlag.com)- The College Board needs to explain the partnership it has had with a Chinese “front group” for decades, Tennessee Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn is demanding.
    This group has allowed the Chinese government to exert its influence on thousands of students in America during the length of the partnership, Blackburn said.
    The College Board is a non-profit organization that administers tests such as the Advancement Placement test and SAT test for high school students looking to enter college. The partnership in question is with the Confucius Institute, which also goes by Hanban. That group is backed by the Chinese government, and is a propaganda wing of the Communist Party in the country, U.S. officials say.
    Because the partnership is so lucrative, Blackburn says it would result in the College Board getting unduly influenced by the Chinese organization.
    In a letter she wrote that was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, Blackburn wrote:
    “It is my concern that the Chinese government is manipulating this [College Board] partnership to characterize China in a wholesome light and stifle conversation that might be detrimental to the reputation of the Chinese Communist Party. College Board’s relationship with Hanban creates momentous security concerns.”
    The College Board received almost $700,000 from the Confucius Institute, according to a report issued by the National Association of Scholars in August. That money was directed to develop Chinese curriculum for the College Board’s AP program. This, then, shaped the education of the thousands of high school students in the U.S. who take this course every year.
    Another concern is that the College Board has helped to place hundreds of Chinese teachers at schools throughout the country. Those teachers were vetted by the Confucius Institute.
    Blackburn is demanding that David Coleman, the CEO of the College Board, to explain the role that the Confucius Institute plays in the selection of teachers as well as the criteria for tests it administers. She also wants to know if the relationship could potentially give the Chinese government “undue influence” over students in America.
    This isn’t just a Republican-led charge, though. There has been a bipartisan push recently to “rein in the activities” of the Confucius Institute. When it was operating at its fullest in 2017, the organization had more than 100 branches across the country at both K-12 schools and colleges.
    In 2018, Congress prohibited any American university from diverting funding they got from the Pentagon to support programming by the Confucius Institute. In June, the Senate unanimously passed a bill that would require all universities that received federal funding to exercise “full managerial control” of any programs backed by China.
    For its part, the Confucius Institute says it only operates to foster literacy in Mandarin as well as appreciation for the culture of China. But many reports say they are lying.
    Some investigations have found that the Confucius Institute requires instructors to follow all Chinese laws even when they’re on American soil. It also prohibits the instructors to discuss any issues related to sensitive topics, as deemed by the Chinese government, such as Tibet or Xinjiang.
