The fangs of the Chinse Communist Party and People’s Liberation Army run ‘Taihe Institute,’ an alleged Chinese military-intelligence spy-ring with ‘research center’ beachheads in the United States and Germany first exposed recently by National File here, by Stew Peters here, and subsequently by Washington Examiner and Breitbart, continue to sharpen in late 2022. ANR’s good friends Stateside in Washington at National File have fearlessly reported that Taihe recently established forward operating bases in the contemporary Marxist hotspots of Australia*, Peru, and Brazil. Perhaps taking a leaf from the good guys’ previously successful Radio Free Europe information warfare playbook, the conniving and apparently well-funded Communists at Taihe have also launched a shiny new podcast and magazine. Feel the Zen!
Jokes aside, ANR’s British Texans take a closer, serious look.
Recall, the illustrious Taihe comrades are not your typical ‘boys next door,’ with their voyeuristic pastimes comprising canoodling around the United States with the ‘Humpty Dumpty Institute,’ or HDI, a mysterious ‘nonprofit’ Directed (since 2007) and Financed by assumed quisling (noting that Mark Epstein was described in a written text message by Fox’s Charlie Gasparino as a ‘Double Agent,’) Mark Epstein (yes, Jeffrey’s brother), a plethora of Israeli intelligence and political figures, and radical elements of US Congress – seemingly to advance a ‘China First,’ ethnocentric Han Chinese agenda. Chaired since 2013 by shadowy figure, ‘Peng Binge,’ Taihe Institute Senior Fellows comprise former Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Commissar and Major General Lei Zhitian, Former CPPCC National Committee head honcho Gu Boping, former World Military and China Army Editor-in-Chief Chen Hu, World Economic Forum (WEF) Associate Director Thorsten Jelinek, PLA Air Force (PLAAF) Group Captain Wang Haili, Graduate School at National Defence University of People’s Liberation Army Associate Dean Quan Yong, China Research Society of Sun Tzu’s Art of War Executive Director Xue Guoan, 12th CPPCC National Committee member Yu Hongjun, Former Xinhua North America Regional Bureau Director Zeng Hu, Perfect World Group Founder and Chairman Chi Yufeng, and Cyberspace Administration of China Vice Director (CAC) Peng Bo. Intriguingly, several tenured Taihe and HDI staff (including HDI’s CEO, Joseph Merante, who is photographed on many occasions in Peng’s company both at home and in Beijing) contacted by telephone by ANR claim to not know or recognize the name of HDI’s founder and current Chairman, the militaristic Peng Binge (occasionally known also as Binge Peng or Peng Bin Ge) – and perhaps with very good reason.
TAIHE DOWN UNDER
The use of spies has long been a Confucian artform and it seems the Australian Army, through Taihe’s new Aussie recruit, Digby Wren, is not immune to its charms. ‘Diggers’ is an ardent Sinophile, Communist and long-time CCP regime shill, serving as a propogandist for Beijing-headquartered CGTN, which is controlled by the Orwellian ‘Publicity Department of the Chinese Communist Party.’ Cavorting with dictators and ejaculating their despotic talking points seems to be his whole MO. At the same time, troublingly, the talented Mr. Wren seems to be providing strategic advice to one of the US’ key military allies, Australia. In his brand new role as Taihe’s magazine Editor and podcaster, one can only wonder if Australia, like its freedom-loving US counterpart, will soon also have Taihe ‘research centers’ appear on its doorstep. Heck, it would not be out of place in the current environment Down Under – watch the Premier (Governor equivalent), Mark McGowan, of Australia’s most prosperous but now perennially locked-down (2 years and counting) state, Western Australia, exhort “Go China! China First!” on tape here. McGowan’s sycophancy, described in detail by Australian conservative firebrand, Clive Palmer, further showcases the true rot in the Australian political scene and the extent of the CCP’s infiltration of the Australian political and business ‘elite,’ which can also be seen here and here.
YOU HAVE THE WATCH, BUT WE HAVE THE TIME
A surmised ‘benefit’ of one-party rule and five-year plans is the ability to plan for the long-term, and potentially outmaneuver shorter-sighted foreign adversaries – even in their own hemispheric backyard.
Wracked by a new and sometimes violent Marxist insurgency that has puzzled the National File’s well-placed local sources, culminating in the installation of a Communist President in mid-2021, and Chavismo-styled calls for changes to the constitution since, resource-rich Peru has too drawn the apple of Taihe’s eye. In-line with sensible ‘best-and-brightest’ campus influence operations over time, and similar to arrangements with Australia’s Digby Wren, Taihe recently acquired the services of leading Peruvian media commentator and Harvard alum, Marco Carrasco (recently deleted his LinkedIn, eh?), as both magazine editor and narrative shaper. Taihe’s precise intentions for Peru via its new vehicle, Carrasco, a Peruvian national and described ‘Young Sinologist,*’ are unclear, though Carrasco proudly denotes* his revolutionary credentials through his academic relationship with the George Soros backed Harvard academic, Cass Sunstein (spouse of Samantha Power, we might add). Sunstein, Carrasco’s mentor, was described by Glenn Beck as “The Most Dangerous Man in America,” and one who has vigorously pushed the ‘progressive’ US Constitution movement and pro-China stances.
For good measure, on October 11, 2022, the CCP-PLA-TAIHE and the newly installed Communist government in Peru continued their lovefest right out there in the open, matching the CCP-PLA-TAIHE’s previous blatant strides into Brazilian territory.
Will the conservative establishment media in the United States and at Sky News in Australia (yes, Andrew Bolt has this and uniquely related stories, and has had them for a long while now) finally decide to shine a spotlight on the increasingly muscular Taihe Institute, the ever-sharpening ideological and kompromat weapon of the Chinese Communist Party and People’s Liberation Army?
