Trump hails UK voter ID proposal as model for United States

International | May 12, 2021

Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday touted a voter identification proposal in the United Kingdom as a model for what should be done in the United States.

Such voting reforms are necessary “so we never again have an election rigged and stolen from us,” Trump said in a statement, alluding to the 2020 election.

The announcement on Tuesday of a proposal to require U.K. voters to show a photo ID to vote was made as part of the “Queen’s Speech,” an address delivered by Queen Elizabeth II and prepared by the ruling party that lays out Parliament’s priorities. The speech is not meant to represent the queen’s own opinions…

Epoch Times Calls for International Condemnation of Attack on Its Reporter in Hong Kong

International | May 11, 2021

The Epoch Times calls upon the international community to condemn the Chinese Communist Party’s attempts to silence The Epoch Times and end press freedom in Hong Kong.

The ongoing campaign against the Hong Kong Epoch Times took a dangerous new turn on the morning of May 11 as a thug attacked reporter Sarah Liang with a softball bat outside her apartment building. Liang suffered bruises to both legs and was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for evaluation.

This attack follows an attempt to shut down The Epoch Times’ printing press as well as previous attempts to intimidate Liang.

In the April 12 attack on the printing press, intruders smashed equipment with sledgehammers, poured concrete debris over sensitive machinery, and stole a computer. The press was out of operation for a few days.

That was the fifth attack on the printing press since it opened in 2004, with the previous one an attempt to set it on fire, in November 2019.

Liang reported that an unknown man harassed her at her home on April 24 and that she was followed by an unknown man on April 26…

Epoch Times Reporter Attacked by Man With Softball Bat in Hong Kong

International | May 11, 2021

A reporter for the Hong Kong edition of The Epoch Times was beaten by an unidentified man wielding an aluminum softball bat on May 11, in an attack believed to be orchestrated by the Chinese regime in its latest attempt to silence the publication’s reporting.

Sarah Liang was on the first floor of her residential building when the assault took place at noon on Tuesday. The assailant swung the bat at her more than 10 times before fleeing in a car. The assault lasted about a minute and Liang was left with bruises on both of her legs…

Chinese Military Scientists Discussed Man-Made Coronavirus Attack Years Before COVID-19 Pandemic

International | May 11, 2021

Chinese military scientists in 2015 detailed a plot to unleash a bioengineered SARS coronavirus to cause mass terror and advance the communist regime’s global political ambitions.

These newly uncovered revelations come amid intensifying scrutiny over the possibility that the COVID-19 pandemic originated from a laboratory leak in Wuhan, an institute that has collaborated with the Chinese military.

The Chinese military scientists’ theories were detailed in a 2015 book, first reported recently by News Corp’s The Australian. The scientists advocated for the weaponization of pathogens, including SARS coronaviruses, to “cause terror and gain political and strategic advantage” over an enemy state.

The SARS epidemic from 2002 to 2003 infected 2,769 and killed 425 people outside of mainland China, according to data from the World Health Organization (WHO). Experts say the numbers inside China are likely much higher than officially reported…

Church of Scotland to debate legislation on same-sex marriage

International | May 10, 2021

The Church of Scotland’s General Assembly meeting later this month will debate legislation on allowing ministers to conduct same-sex marriages.

The legislation means that ministers and deacons would be able to apply for a license to become authorized celebrants for same-sex marriage ceremonies.

Provisions in the legislation say that no one will be forced to participate in or be involved in the arrangements for a same-sex marriage unless they explicitly wish to do so.

The proposals are being brought after the 2018 General Assembly instructed the Legal Questions Committee to prepare draft legislation.

If the Assembly, meeting from May 22–27, passes the legislation, it will then be shared with presbyteries for their consideration, with all responses to be returned to the principal clerk by no later than Dec. 31…

Canadian pastor Artur Pawlowski arrested for holding church service

International | May 9, 2021

Canadian pastor Artur Pawlowski was arrested on Saturday for committing the crime of holding a church service, which violated Alberta’s public health orders. Pawlowski, who went viral last month for the video of him kicking Canadian police and a health official out of his church while calling them “gestapo,” held church service on Saturday in Alberta where “dozens were congregating without masks, with no regard for physical distancing,” according to the Calgary Herald….
