push police departments to ban the use

of chokeholds ban no-knock warrants and

drug cases and more several other

speakers sympathize with Floyd called

for greater accountability for officers

and defended the police force if we are

going to talk about better policing we

behind the need for those calls for

service something defunding the police

is the answer history has shown that

underfunding the police can have

disastrous consequences and hurt those

most in need of our services reform may

been listening to protesters and working

quietly on proposals the president has

spent the last 10 days quietly and

diligently working on proposals to

2021 and 55 percent in 2022 that's

the last marker ahead of a general

waiting lines turning to Nevada hundreds

of voters waited for hours at a mere

three in-person polling places in a Las

Vegas area which were reduced amid virus

Virginians took to the polls to decide

presidential gubernatorial Senate and

House candidates in West Virginia's

Democratic and Republican primaries they

were also deciding a majority of the

five member state Supreme Court a grand

jury has indicted one of the country's

top chemists for making false statements

the Harvard professor allegedly lied

about receiving money from the Chinese

regime and about his involvement in

China's thousand talents program on

Tuesday a federal grand jury indicted

Harvard professor Charles Lieber for

making false statements to federal

authorities Lieber is charged with lying

about his involvement in China's

thousand talents program Libre has

denied the accusations according to the

Justice Department the Chinese regime

uses the program to lure foreign experts

to bring their knowledge and experience

to China

and rewards them for stealing

intellectual property the court

documents say Lieber specializes in

research on nanoscience and he has

received over fifteen million dollars in

grants from the National Institutes of

Health and the Department of Defense but

to get those grants one has to be open

about any other sources of funding

conflicts of interest and foreign

collaboration the charging documents

allege that without Harvard's knowledge

Lieber became a strategic scientists at

the Wuhan University of Technology in

China in 2011 the court alleges Lieber

entered into a contract with China's

thousand talents program at least from

2012 to 2015 in the contract at the

Chinese University allegedly paid Lieber

$50,000 a month it paid him one and a

half million dollars to establish a

research lab in Wuhan in 2018 and 2019

the Harvard professor allegedly lied

about his involvement in the program the

charge of making false statements

carries a sentence of up to five years

in prison three years of supervised

release and a fine of a quarter million

dollars Lieber is set to be arraigned at

a later date New York state lawmakers

passed a bill yesterday that would make

police officers records available to the

public the lawmakers are responding to

calls for more police accountability New

York state lawmakers repealed a

decades-old law Tuesday that kept law

enforcement disciplinary records secret

one opponent of the bill is concerned

about releasing unproven information by

putting out unsubstantiated claims we

are essentially opening up those offices

to public shaming just by the mere fact

that someone put in a complaint

eliminating the law known as section 58

would make complaints and disciplinary

records public for the first time in

decades Governor Andrew Cuomo said he

will sign it

the repeal came as protesters call for

the reform of policing practices in the

wake of the death of George Floyd one

supporter says it's not enough people

aren't protesting for watered-down

legislation I applaud the sponsor of

this piece of legislation for being

consistent with it over five years

however honesty compels me to say big

deal you have to give up your background

when opponent says they're reacting too

fast it's not the right way to fix the

problem I don't think enough

stakeholders have been involved in this

to make this get this done right we need

to slow down and if you want to fix this

this is not the way to do it

only Delaware has a similar law the

legislature passed other police

accountability measures on Monday more

are expected and coming up the US

Secretary of State released in 2019

report on International Religious

Freedom today find out more about it

after the break

[Applause]

when you look at TV networks in America

a soundbite invited out culture prevails

on news and commentary programs as a

Canadian I'm fascinated with America and

I wanted to offer American

thought-leaders an opportunity to share

their thoughts in a deep dive format

where we can explore their ideas

together and so American thought-leaders

was born the world's most brilliant

thinkers believed that open discourse

was the key to greatness however all

around the world you see that discourse

is being stifled in political agendas of

subverted media the epic times launched

its global thought leaders program to

bring back this great tradition of

rethought we have as the host of

American thought leaders every week I

interview some of the most intriguing

minds on the most pressing issues of our

time

be sure to check out our new episodes

every week a new report from the State

Department today this time about

International Religious Freedom it

follows the president Trump's executive

order last week to prioritize religious

freedom in foreign aid packages

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on

Wednesday unveiling the office of

international religious freedoms latest

report to Congress ambassador of the

Alliance said repression of faith is

unfortunately still too common in many

places of the world individuals have

become more familiar with religious

oppression than religious freedom in the

worst cases people are persecuted for

their faith and forced to abandon their

beliefs or face government backlash

China continues its decades-long war on

faith the report reveals last year the

Chinese Communist Party regime arrested

and detained more than 6,000 people who

practice Falun Gong a meditation

discipline that focuses on the

principles of truthfulness compassion

and forbearance the regime banned the

practice in 1999 and continues even now

to harass and detain Falun Gong

practitioners and people of other faiths

even going so far as to label Falun Gong

in a number of Christian groups evil

cults the Chinese Communist Party is now

ordering religious organizations to obey

CCP leadership and infuse Communist

Dogma into their teachings and practice

of their faith the mass detentions of we

Gers in Shenyang continues so does the

repression of Tibetans and Buddhists and

Falun Gong and Christians there are

reports that the regime forcibly

harvests organs from these prisoners of

conscience while they are detained

another focus of Pompeo and his team is

freeing six American oil executives who

have been detained in Venezuela for two

and a half years without trial as for

the Western Hemisphere

Pompeyo says the us is working to end

forced labor of over 10,000 Cuban health

care workers among other initiatives

Molina Y's cup ng dnews it's been called

the Gestapo of China the 610 offices one

of the Chinese regime's most notorious

agencies is tasked with cracking down on

dissidents and religious minorities it

was supposedly disbanded two years ago

but internal documents indicate its

functions are still being actively

carried out only under a different name

the Chinese regime established the 610

office on June 10th 1999 21 years ago a

Chinese human rights lawyer has compared

it to Hitler's Gestapo although it's

little known outside China it is

extremely powerful the Chinese regime

set up this extra legal organization in

1999 to persecute the spiritual practice

Falun Gong it later expanded to also

targeting people who believed in other

so-called unapproved spiritual practices

like house church Christians and

Buddhists as well as human rights

lawyers the 610 office operates at every

level of Chinese society and reported

directly to the top Chinese Communist

Party leader at the time John zooming on

the surface the CCP says this

organization no longer exists current

communist leader Xi Jinping gradually

weakened and eventually disbanded the

office through structural reforms after

he took power in 2012 but an internal

document recently obtained by entity's

sister media The Epoch Times presents a

different reality the 610 office may

have just changed the name due to

pressure from international human rights

groups and may be operating under a

different group called the anti

heretical religion guidance branch

Beijing's Fung sin district issued a

report from the agency in 2019 it shows

the agency giving scores on how well 93

different Communist Party and government

institutions are implementing the ccp's

anti religious policies things like

whether they successfully prevented

religious gatherings or if they have

successfully transformed an edge

religious believers to renounce their

faith the agencies being assessed range

across all sectors of the government

from the powerful political and legal

affairs Commission PL AC to the

organization department which is in

charge of assigning officials posts and

promotions to local Police Bureau's

local prosecutors offices and courts

among others some seem completely

unrelated to religious affairs like the

local tax Bureau the meteorological

administration the earthquake

administration the Red Cross and the

urban greening Bureau the report shows

none of these agencies escapes the

scrutiny of the de facto 610 office the

urban greening bureau for example was

scored down for not having enough people

taking a so-called anti-cult quiz the

quiz asks people what to do when they

spot a religious gathering and the right

answer is to report it to the Chinese

police another document from 2018 shows

the agency is even involved in foreign

affairs at that time the function

district 610 office paid for Communist

Party officials to visit Canada they

carried out a campaign against heretic

all religions in Montreal Toronto and

Ottawa the so-called overseas struggle

activities in Canada focused on

promoting hatred of Falun Gong the

communist agency held anti-cult

symposiums and paid local Chinese

language media to run propaganda against

the practice according to Ming

hawaiiorg a website that documents the

ccp's persecution of Falun Gong over

4000 Falun Gong adherents in China have

been killed due to the persecution

coming up the UN says 40% of North

Koreans don't have enough food although

food shortages are common in North Korea

according to the UN a huge number of

North Korea's population is in need of

humanitarian aid the country is

currently experiencing a worsening of

food shortages according to a UN Human

Rights expert North Korea is suffering

widespread food shortages and

malnutrition while North Korea has a

history of food shortages the situation

is even worse now thanks to a nearly

five months border closure with China

and strict quarantine measures according

to the UN medicine prices are

skyrocketing and some people have only

corn to eat while others are starving in

the mid 90s a famine killed around three

million people in the isolated country

as of now over 10 million people almost

40% of the population suffered from food

and security and are in urgent need of

food assistance due to the shortage of

suitable agricultural land North Korea

always faces a challenge and growing

enough staple food to feed its

population it's a crucial time for rice

growers who are currently moving young

rice seedlings from the crowded beds

where they were planted to the big

fields so far farmers have seen less

than ideal weather and there are other

problems to tackle at the moment the UN

urged North Korea to free prisoners

during the pandemic because people in

their prisons are dying as a result of

contagious diseases overcrowding and

hard work with a lack of food the true

state of the CCP virus situation in the

country is uncertain as North Korea

refuses to report its case numbers to

in France construction workers are

returning to Notre Dame Cathedral after

weeks of lockdown preparing for

restoration is a delicate undertaking a

year since a fire gutted Cathedral our

France correspondent David vivaz has the

story after delays and restoration

workers started removing the twisted

scaffolding around Paris's notre-dame

Cathedral the work of human hands is

absolutely decisive for those under

ropes in clamber all over the structure

with all the agility they have there on

ropes at 40 metres high it's a crucial

first step before the cathedrals

restoration can begin this scaffolding

was installed prior to the blaze for

restoration work on the error of not

Widom but after the blaze last year it

became a constant threat because it

could have collapsed on the cathedral at

any time the damaged scaffolding has

been surrounded by yet more scaffolding

and an enormous crane was brought in the

operation will cut away 200 tons of

metal and debris from the roof still

needs to be cleaned up it's precision

work but some parts of the Cathedral

might not be stable camor seduces and as

everyone knows if one stone falls from a

part of the vault the entire vault could

be weakened only after this step which

should last three to four months will

there be a plan for restoration and

maybe even redesign president Emmanuel

macron is pledging the cathedral will be

fully restored within five years
