On Thursday, a few law makers including Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Kevin Cramer of North Dakota, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Roger Marshall of Kansas, and Marco Rubio of Florida, introduced the Sister City Transparency Act, which allows a US GAO investigation report of US sister cities with China partnerships. (A sister city is communities in two different countries that form a partnership agreement.) The US currently has 1,800 “sister city” partnerships with 138 countries—with China, they have 157 agreements.
“The [Chinese Communist Party] hides behind the veil of soft diplomacy and mutual benefit until its foreign partners exhibit political nonconformity,” Blackburn’s office told FOX Business, adding that sister cities are “similar to Confucius Institutes,” or partnerships between the CCP and U.S. public education institutions, that “may leave American communities vulnerable to foreign espionage and ideological coercion.” She isn’t encouraged by their lack of transparency based on the agreements, activities, and their employees.

The Chinese Communistic Party (CCP) is a liability and threat not only in China, but around the world. They have dealt egregiously with everybody in different countries and used criminal and wrongful acts to expand their influence and power. The worst that they have done is commit human rights genocide against their own people such as Falun Dafa practitioners, Tibetans, Hong Kongers, dissidents, Christians, Uighur Muslims, and anybody who speaks out against their communistic, corrupt regime. Their human rights crimes, abuses, and violations include slave labor, torture, sexual assault, live organ harvesting, and false imprisonment. Please sign this petition to end the CCP — www.endccp.com
