One thing you can say about Joe Biden is that he is extremely loyal to the country. Unfortunately that country is China. Americans can go to hell.
President Trump ordered colleges and universities to report money they get from China through the Confucius Institutes.
Trump had suggested a rule to Homeland Security that would force schools to disclose any agreements they have with the Confucius Institutes, an alleged propaganda organization.
But Biden, being the good little employee that he is has now revoked that rule and schools can go back to hiding their relationships with the communist Chinese government.
Several scientists at universities have been arrested because they took Chinese money and passed along sensitive material.
Biden’s action will make it much easier to hide these relationships, which will allow them to flourish.
Around 500 K-12 schools and 65 colleges in the U.S. have deals with the Confucius Institute and their influence carefully bought and paid for allows an enemy of the United States to influence the youth of this country. Biden actually had the proposed rule withdrawn on January 26th, just six days after taking office. I foresee another big payday for the Big Guy.
The Beijing-based Confucius Institute Headquarters is affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Education. Many of the members are of the Chinese Communist Party or have close ties to the organization.
The Trump era proposal was withdrawn from consideration on Jan. 26, according to information at RegInfo.gov, the website for the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), which operates under the Office of Management and Budget and the White House.
The OIRA website does not provide any other information about the proposal, or why it was tabled. The website does say that at any point in the review process for a proposed rule, “an agency may withdraw its rule from review and choose not to move forward with it or to resubmit it after further consideration.”
Axios reported on Jan. 11 that the Trump administration was trying to push through a rule that would require colleges and K-12 schools to disclose any financial ties to Confucius Institutes. The story noted that Biden could quickly undo the rule once he took office.
