(Natural News) The Taiwanese government is resisting what is quickly coming into favor among a growing number of American leaders and diplomats: The destruction of the island’s highly advanced semi-conductor plants, in order to avoid having them fall into the hands of invading Chinese forces.

“Taiwan’s defense minister on Monday pushed back against the idea of the US bombing the island’s semiconductor factories in the event of a Chinese invasion,” AntiWar.com reported this week.

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) recently made a statement suggesting that the United States should convey a strong message to China about the consequences and “make it very clear to the Chinese that if you invade Taiwan, we’re going to blow up TSMC” — referring to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, which produces the majority of the world’s advanced semiconductors.

Taiwanese Defense Minister, Chiu Kuo-cheng, responded to Moulton’s comments by stating that the island’s military would not allow such an occurrence.

“It is the military’s obligation to defend Taiwan and we will not tolerate any others blowing up our facilities,” he said, according to The South China Morning Post.

The concept of targeting Taiwan’s chip manufacturing facilities to prevent them from falling into Chinese control is gaining traction in Washington. A 2021 paper published by the US Army War College proposed that the United States and Taiwan should strategize for “scorched-earth” tactics that would make it “not just unattractive if ever seized by force, but positively costly to maintain.”


The paper went on to say that it could be done “most effectively by threatening to destroy facilities belonging to the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, the most important chipmaker in the world and China’s most important supplier.”

The chipmaker is the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturer, with a market capitalization of over $500 billion. Founded in 1987, the company has become a key player in the global technology industry, producing chips for some of the biggest names in electronics.

TSMC’s success can be attributed to its focus on innovation and customer satisfaction. The company invests heavily in research and development, constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in semiconductor manufacturing. TSMC is also known for its customer-centric approach, working closely with clients to develop customized solutions that meet their specific needs.

One of the key factors driving TSMC’s success is its advanced manufacturing processes. The company uses cutting-edge technology to produce chips with smaller and more intricate components, allowing for faster processing speeds and lower power consumption. TSMC is also known for its commitment to sustainability, using renewable energy sources, and implementing environmentally-friendly practices throughout its operations.

TSMC has also played a key role in Taiwan’s economic development. The company is one of the largest employers in the country, with over 50,000 employees worldwide. TSMC’s success has also helped to attract other high-tech companies to Taiwan, creating a thriving ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship.

In recent years, the company has seen significant growth in the automotive and Internet of Things (IoT) markets, as well as in the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G technology. TSMC has also expanded its operations globally, opening new facilities — interestingly, in China, as well as the United States and Europe.

Meanwhile, Robert O’Brien, who served as President Trump’s national security advisor, told the outlet Semafor in March: “The United States and its allies are never going to let those factories fall into Chinese hands.”

He made a parallel between a historical event and the current situation, referring to the British bombing of the French naval fleet off the coast of Algeria in 1940. The purpose of that attack was to prevent the ships from falling into the hands of Nazi Germany. However, it resulted in the unfortunate loss of nearly 1,300 French sailors’ lives.

“The Brits didn’t allow the French fleet to remain intact so that it could have potentially gone to the Germans and changed the balance of power for the battle of the Atlantic,” he said.

A 'biomedical police state kill box' is now fully established and mRNA-LNP compounds are 'cellular genetic dirty bombs,' warns legal researcher for US senator

Image: A ‘biomedical police state kill box’ is now fully established and mRNA-LNP compounds are ‘cellular genetic dirty bombs,’ warns legal researcher for US senator

(Natural News) The stories over at Substack the last several days from numerous different authors are absolutely alarming and tell a story that must be told considering the mainstream media won’t touch these with a 50-foot pole and instead, are helping the anti-America terrorists/squatters sitting in the White House, Congress and the Pentagon wage a deadly war upon the American people, now aimed at your children and mine.

(Article by Stefan Stanford republished from AllNewsPipeline.com)

With a recent study published on the website Nature reporting a major scientific journal had just published research linking ‘the vax‘ to untreatable eyeball blood clots, finding that those who’d been ‘vaxxed‘ were at significantly greater risk of developing blood clots than ‘the unvaxxed,’ while according to this story at the COVID blog, new research has found thousands of ‘vaxxed‘ patients are finding their skin to be quite literally ‘melting off,’ ‘baffling‘ doctors, those stories prove why it’s no wonder ‘vaccines‘ of the past were tested for years and years, and even decades sometimes, before they were given to ‘the people,’ unlike this ‘death shot‘ that was haphazardly rolled out and injected into the masses in ‘warp speed‘.

As Steve Kirsch reports in this new story over at Substack, the COVID vaccines have an estimated death rate MORE THAN 1,000 higher than the acceptable safe limit, but nobody at the FDA or the CDC, or within the United States government, cares about that. The real story is that an estimated 80% or more of the vaccines examined in this study are too deadly to be usedHere’s the data showing that.


And with two must-read stories over at Bailiwick News at Substack, one titled “Construction of the Kill Box: Legal History,” with the 2nd one titled “mRNA-LNP compounds are cellular genetic dirty bombs,” laying it all on the line, we’re warned what we’ve witnessed the last several years, continuing to this day, is nothing less than a US military operation upon the American people, a biomedical police state kill box system forced upon us, where genetic cell poisons were falsely presented to and injected into the world’s people as medicinal products.

Called a “brutal global mass murder program that is fully intentional,” also warning within this story that Widespread fear, confusion, despair, sickening and death are not, as many would prefer to believe, ‘unintended consequences,‘” we’re warned that the research done by author Katherine Watt has found this ‘killing program‘ dates back at least 60 years, and includes: religious, psychological, behavioral, biochemical, social, economic, political, financial, monetary and military elementshiding behind lies about the source and purpose of human life and procreative potential; population-carrying capacity; resource use; climate; scientific and technological aptitude; human disease; and human health.

Also reporting that these never-ending lies are constantly promulgated by governments, transnational organizations, mass media and State schools, we’re told how the program works, making it much easier to see why so many young children and healthy young adults are now dying sudden and unexpected deathsbecause mass deaths were the ‘end game’ of these devilish programs in the first place. From this Bailiwick News story written by paralegal researcher Katherine Watt.:

The nurse-with-needle is the bomber. 

The lipid nanoparticle is the suitcase used to smuggle the bomb into cells. 

The mRNA is the bomb. 

Once inside the cell, fragments of genetic code replicate and interfere with healthy genetic code in myriad ways, causing countless injuries, diseases and organ failures, and bringing about death.

And bringing death to young and previously healthy children is now what’s happening globally, allowing the globalists to ‘double or triple or quadruple down’ on their depopulation plot by not only killing our youngest generations, but assuring that all of those murdered children never have kids themselves. And now we have batsh!t crazy Chelsea Clinton claiming “it’s time to force-jab every unvaccinated child in America.” Those are civil war words, Chelsea, see what happens if you try it!

We’ll start with a must-read story by Dr. William Makis MD titled “Children 5-12 years old who died after taking Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccines: here are 25 children who died from mRNA jabs, while 0 healthy children died from COVID-19 infection itself” (originally published here) within which Dr. Makis shares with us the stories of 25 previously healthy young kids who died soon after getting vaxxed.

Using the social media posts of their parents and other relatives announcing their unexpected deaths, as well as their ‘vax stories,‘ to prove to us these young children were indeed killed by the vax, none of us should be surprised that the mainstream media continues to call such stories ‘conspiracy theories.’ One such heartbreaking story is told in the photograph directly below.

With another such story over at Substack written by Dr. Paul Elias Alexander titled “Turbo Cancer Leukemia: Children From Ages 11 to 21 Are Dying Within Hours or Days of Cancer Diagnosis,” echoing our April 28th ANP story titled “Tidal Wave Of ‘Turbo Cancers’ Strike America At Same Time As Doctors Warn Of An ‘Accelerated Disease Process’ And ‘The Greatest Crime In History’ Being Carried Out Before Our Eyes,” Dr. Alexander warns us we’re now witnessing something never seen before, and yet the mainstream media continues to deny that all of these unexplained deaths are tied to ‘the vax.’ From his story.:

Malone, Kariko, and Weissman’s mRNA technology based gene injections appear to damage and subvert the P53 pathway and when there is cancer, the P53 pathway is hobbled. mRNA gene injection does this. The majority of the human cancer cells exhibit the inactivation of the P53 pathway. P53 tumor suppressor protein play critical roles in DNA damage responses, apoptosis, autophagy, and cellular metabolism.

With Dr. Alexander within that story also telling the heartbreaking story of a 13-year old girl from Harlem Middle School in Georgia who died within hours of being diagnosed with leukemia, who had gone to the ER with a headache and ear infection and found to have “bleeding in her brain, lungs, stomach’ and throughout her body,” with her parents claiming they never knew she had it and “She never had more than a sniffle and she’s never been hospitalized for anything since she was born,” stories such as that are plentiful both here and here, stories confirming the global govt war upon children.

Influenza Vaccine Fails to Stop Hospitalization and Death

By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH

Influenza vaccination has become a mainstay in American medicine largely as measure to protect the elderly. However in recently decades the FluShot has been pushed on healthcare workers, the general adult public, and starting in 2017 the CDC ACIP Panel stated: “Routine annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all persons age 6 months and older who do not have a contraindication.” I wondered if the FluShot even did was it was supposed to do originally in the elderly—protect against hospitalization and death. I was disappointed by real world data.

Uemura and coworkers from the Department of Biostatistics & Bioinformatics, Interfaculty Initiative in Information Studies, University of Tokyo, Japan reported on 83,146 individuals who were aged 65 years or older at baseline and were followed up between April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2020.

Uemura K, Ono S, Michihata N, Yamana H, Yasunaga H. Duration of influenza vaccine effectiveness in the elderly in Japan: A retrospective cohort study using large-scale population-based registry data. Vaccine. 2023 May 5;41(19):3092-3098. doi: 10.1016/j.vaccine.2023.03.066. Epub 2023 Apr 10. PMID: 37045684.

The multivariable analysis showed a lower incidence of influenza in vaccinated individuals (hazard ratio [HR], 0.47; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.43-0.51; P < 0.001), however the incidence of hospitalization for influenza did not differ significantly by vaccination status (HR, 0.79; 95% CI, 0.53-1.18; P = 0.249). Protective effectiveness against incidence waned quickly after 4 or 5 months.

These data suggest the massive effort on vaccination in the general population is a waste of time and effort. If the frail and elderly get no overall direct reduction in hospitalization and death, influenza vaccination should be individualized based on pulmonary and systemic risks.

World Bank caught funneling cash to sanctioned Chinese companies tied to the CCP, human rights abuses

Image: World Bank caught funneling cash to sanctioned Chinese companies tied to the CCP, human rights abuses

(Natural News) The moneychangers over at the World Bank have been actively funding communist China’s military and human rights abuses, a new federal review of contracts has shown.

The U.S Government Accountability Office (GAO) published a report showing that the World Bank funneled $25 million in 2021 to various Chinese companies that are on the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control sanctions lists, meaning nobody is supposed to be doing business with them.

Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps., for instance, received $7.1 million from the World Bank in 2021 for being a “state-run paramilitary corporate conglomerate” that is “involved in a pervasive program of egregious rights violations that [affect] the most marginalized people in the Uyghur Region,” explains another report by the Helena Kennedy Centre at the United Kingdom’s Sheffield Hallam University.

The GAO report says that these and other findings could “raise national security or foreign policy concerns for the U.S.,” as well as raise new questions about the role of the U.S. as the top financial contributor to the World Bank, which appears to be very closely aligned with communist China.

(Related: According to the World Bank, a global food crisis is coming – and it is supposedly Russia’s fault.)

Should the United States contribute anything at all to the World Bank?

In its defense, the World Bank told the Washington Free Beacon that it “upholds a principle of universal / open eligibility, which guarantees that bidders from all our 189 member countries are eligible to bid for Bank-financed contracts.”


“The only exceptions are entities that are subject to sanctions imposed by the United Nations’ Security Council,” a spokesman added.

Other Chinese-linked companies that received cash from the World Bank in 2021 include the China Communications Construction Company, which received a $6.8 million contract from a World Bank borrower.

The China Communications Construction Company, according to former secretary of state Mike Pompeo, is one of the “leading contractors used by Beijing in its global ‘One Belt One Road’ strategy, engaged in corruption, predatory financing, environmental destruction, and other abuses across the world.”

Other Chinese-linked recipients of cash from the World Bank in 2021 include the China National Chemical Corp., Ltd., and China Mobile Communications Group Co., Ltd., both of which were sanctioned for their connections to the Chinese military.

There is also the China National Electronics Import & Export Corporation, which was sanctioned for attempting to undermine the “democratic” process in Venezuela.

A subsidiary of Huawei, another blacklisted Chinese company that is accused of engaging in corporate espionage and violating U.S. sanctions on Iran, also received $9 million in contracts from the World Bank the year prior in 2020.

The World Bank insists that it screens its contractors against the U.S. sanctions lists, but only for “practical concerns” related to transfers of money. The bank added that it does not “permit use of [U.S. sanctions] or other national lists to determine eligibility” for contract awards.

Borrowers are also allowed to find alternative payment routes, the World Bank indicated, in order to work with sanctioned contractors.

Because the World Bank does not include ownership names, addresses, or other identifying information in its public data, the GAO says it was unable to definitively identify all recipients of World Bank cash, despite making every effort to do so.

“While the World Bank was created to support developing countries, companies in China – the world’s second-largest economy – are the biggest beneficiaries of its contracts,” reports explain.

“Businesses in China received 29.2 percent of all contract funding from the World Bank between 2013 and 2022, compared with 2.4 percent for U.S. companies and 4.4 percent for French companies, the GAO analysis found.”

Solar Farms Erected in Gobi Desert are Set to Power 1.5 Million Chinese Households

Credit – China News Service

Aside from teacups and rice bowls, China doesn’t do anything on a small scale. To wit, their recently-completed solar array in Ningxia Hui is gargantuan—capable of powering 1.5 million homes.

Billed as 1 million kilowatts of capacity, and capable of generating 1.8 billion kilowatt-hours per year, the Ningxia Hui array is the first of several giant renewable energy projects slated for construction in the arid western areas like the Gobi, Tengger, and Taklamakan deserts.

China Energy Investment Corp. says it is the first solar farm in the country to include an ultrahigh-voltage power transmission channel that will bring the electricity generated there to the central Hunan Province.

The transmission is a result of Hunan having a population of 66 million people, compared to Ningxia’s 7 million.

In their most recent Five Year Plan, the Chinese government outlined their intention to install 100 gigawatts of renewable energy by 2026; particularly solar and wind in the desert regions.

The National Energy Administration said installed capacity of renewable energy in China continued to expand in the first quarter, reaching 47.4 million kW, an increase of 86.5% compared with the same period last year.

Like most rural Chinese provinces, Ningxia, along with Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia—the provinces wherein rest the three deserts mentioned above, rely heavily on coal for electricity, and the major installations of solar and wind are hoped to accelerate economic development in these mostly-agricultural economies.

Scientists Release Hundreds of Endangered Seahorses Back Into the Wild–'Best We've Ever Done'

White’s seahorse released in Australia – Supplied by Dr. David Harasti

Marine biologists restoring populations of seahorses off Australia’s east coast are ecstatic at the best efforts they’ve seen so far.

Hundreds of White’s seahorses, the only seahorse or seadragon species on Australia’s national endangered species list, were released into the waters north of Newcastle into specially-made “hotels.”

The project was conducted through a private-public effort consisting of the Sydney Aquarium and the Department of Primary Industries, (DPI) an agency that oversees hunting, agriculture, fishing, and forestry.

A generation ago, divers might see two dozen White’s seahorses at a time off Sydney Harbor at a refuge called Port Stephens, but coastal development and boat moorings have disrupted the habitat of these beautiful and strange creatures.

Sydney Aquarium has a very successful breeding program for the animal that uses individuals from Port Stephens as broodstock. The fathers raise the eggs of the next generation in a belly pouch—a feature unique in the entire animal kingdom—and are collected in large bags of seawater after they hatch.

They are then taken to the refuges and lowered down into their hotels. The hotels are essentially cages meant for much larger animals. They create plenty of nooks and crannies that serve as habitat for them and their prey species like crustaceans.

Recently, aboard a DPI boat off Nelson Bay, Dr. David Harasti, a scientist with the department, released 350 baby seahorses at one time.

“That was the best one we’ve ever done—350 baby seahorses sitting around in their new home,” he told ABC au, who filmed him doing the release. 

“It’s great to see and I can’t wait to go back in a couple of weeks and see how they’re doing.”
