The British Olympic Association has advised Team GB not to bring their mobile phones to Beijing, due to spying fears.
British athletes competing at the Winter Olympics have been told by the British Olympic Association (BOA) to avoid bringing their phones to Beijing for the Winter Olympics in February, due to fears the Chinese government may hack them.
The BOA have offered the athletes temporary phones to take in their stead, to ensure potentially sensitive personal and training information will be protected from reaching Chinese authorities.
Athletes have not, however, been banned from taking their own devices. The BOA has instead encouraged the competitors to “make their own choice” after highlighting the potential risks to their privacy.
China will allow foreign athletes to temporarily access Facebook and Twitter during the Games, platforms ordinary Chinese citizens are prohibited from using, which has also created security concerns over what information the Chinese government could have access to, the Guardian reports.
Chinese authorities have previously been caught installing apps on tourists’ phones which had the capability to download texts, emails and contacts to keep track of individuals in their nation.
It is becoming common practice in China for police to scan individuals’ devices for “illegal information” during routine encounters with citizens, such as traffic stops. The communist state also uses facial recognition software to monitor its citizens, initially starting with the Muslim population of Xinjiang, but has since begun using it on citizens across their nation.

The anxiety around Chinese authorities spying on British citizens is a major concern, with revelations this week from MI5 that a Chinese spy had been discovered to have successfully infiltrated the British Parliament.
The alleged spy, Christine Ching Kui Lee was exposed as a donor to Labour MP and former Shadow Secretary of State for International Trade, Barry Gardiner, giving the Labour Party almost £700,000 in political donations.
MI5 claims Christine Ching Kui Lee, sought to influence British politics and make the UK political landscape more “favourable to the CCP’s agenda” as well as challenging those “that raise concerns about CCP activity, such as human rights”.

Several nations including the UK, Canada and the United States have imposed a so-called diplomatic boycott on the Chinese Winter Games, meaning politicians and heads of state will not attend. Undermining the stance is the fact the nations will still allow their athletes to compete, meaning the actual impact on the games by the ‘boycott’ will be minimal, if felt at all.
The minor boycott, nevertheless, is in place largely due to increasing concerns about human rights abuses in China and in particular their treatment of Uyghur Muslims.
Uyghur Muslims and other locals in the Chinese region of Xinjiang have been rounded up and forced into hundreds of concentration camps where they are subjected to torture, rape, enslavement and indoctrination. The campaign against the people Xinjiang has been recognised as a genocide.
Despite mounting evidence of atrocities, including escapee testimonies, Chinese officials deny these are concentration camps, instead call them “vocational training” centres.
Chinese state media portrays the forced sterilization of Uyghur women as a triumph of feminism because they don’t have to raise children. https://t.co/D5Gjwvs944

ROUNDUP: Biden Touted Baseless Election Fraud Claims, Gave Putin Cover To Invade Ukraine In Gaffe Ridden Press Conference
This week Joe Biden offered a rare opportunity for the press to ask him questions, and even though they appeared to be screened, the White House’s resident managed to upset both establishment Republicans and members of his own party.
These are only a few of the gaffes from Joe Biden’s two hour press conference:
2022 midterms will be fraudulent unless Dems win (they lost)
Among other bizarre claims and statements, Biden suggested that the 2022 midterm elections – and the 2024 presidential election – could be fraudulent and illegitimate if his party is not given federal control of the nation’s election system.
““I’m not saying it’s going to be legit. The increase in the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these reforms passed,” said Biden. He added, “It all depends on whether or not we’re able to make the case to the American people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election.”
The reforms were not passed. Democrat Sens. Kirsten Sinema and Joe Manchin rebuked Biden and his party, and joined with Republicans to block the party line decision to change the filibuster and allow Democrats unrestrained one party rule.
The remarks were so brazen, and so contrary to now-the typical Democrat condemnations of election fraud claims, that even CNN rebuked Biden for the remark.
Putin “has to do something” (in Ukraine)
Biden appeared to acknowledge that the United States are powerless to stop Vladimir Putin from invading Ukraine, and suggested it is more than a possibility, but rather an inevitability.
Did you watch Joe Biden’s press conference?
“I’m not so sure he is certain what he’s going to do. My guess is he will move in, he has to do something,” said Biden. When asked again, he again passed the buck to the Russian president.
According to Biden, it is “totally, solely, completely a Putin decision.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki later corrected her boss, the sitting president, and explained what he really meant:
President Biden has been clear with the Russian President: If any Russian military forces move across the Ukrainian border, that’s a renewed invasion, and it will be met with a swift, severe, and united response from the United States and our Allies. President Biden also knows from long experience that the Russians have an extensive playbook of aggression short of military action, including cyberattacks and paramilitary tactics. And he affirmed today that those acts of Russian aggression will be met with a decisive, reciprocal, and united response.
No apologies for bloody Afghanistan disaster
Biden remained defiant on the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal that saw over a dozen members of the United States Armed Forces slain, billions of dollars in equipment surrendered to radical Muslims, and all progress in the country lost.
“Look, let’s take Afghanistan, I know you all would like to focus on that, which is legitimate,” said Biden when confronted with his administration’s many shortcomings.
“I have a great concern for the women and men who were blown up on the line at the airport by a terrorist attack against them,” Biden said.
He then delivered this stream of conscious series of words that National File has reproduced in its entirety: “I think you will who know a lot about foreign policy, that had we stayed and I had not pulled those troops out, we would be asked to put somewhere between 20,000 and 50,000 more troops back in, because the only reason more Americans weren’t being killed than others, is because the last president signed an agreement to get out by May the first, and so everything was copacetic.”
Biden when asked about his DISASTROUS withdrawal from Afghanistan that lead to the death of 13 American Heroes:

Your grocery stores aren’t empty, peasants. Or, “Let them eat cake!”
As Americans continue to see viral images on social media depicting empty grocery store shelves – something many Americans then confirm when they physically enter the grocery store – Biden claimed that it’s all in their heads.
According to the White House, prior to the pandemic grocery store shelves were 91% full. Now, the regime declares, they are 89% full.
No reason to complain, serfs!
“I have no idea” why Americans think I’m too dumb to be president
Biden was asked why he believes so many Americans are concerned that his mental fitness is not up to the tasks of the Oval Office.
“I have no idea,” Biden admitted.

Howard Stern Rips Unvaccinated Americans: ‘In My America in my America, All Hospitals Would Be Closed To You— Go Home And Die’
Unvaccinated Covid patients should be refused treatment at hospitals and sent home to die, radio talk show host Howard Stern argued Wednesday.
“If it was up to me, anyone unvaccinated would not be admitted to a hospital,” Stern said on his Sirius XM show. “At this point, they have been given plenty of opportunity to get the vaccine.”
A caller concurred with barring unvaccinated patients from treatment, noting they should be sent “home with a bottle of Robitussin.”
“Right,” Stern continued. “They have been told you will die if you get the vaccine. Some of you will live, but most of you will die. They don’t trust our government. They think that there’s some conspiracy to turn them into a magnet or something like this. They think they are going to become magnetized if they take the vaccine.”
“I’ve taken this vaccine three times, and the worst side effect is for a day, I had a little bit of a headache.”
The number of deaths linked to the CDC-promoted vaccines has skyrocketed over the past 12 months, according to the Center For Disease Control’s own data.
There are at least over a million cases of COVID-19 vaccine adverse reaction including more than 21,745 deaths through January 7, 2022, and a total of 1,033,992 people have suffered Covid vaccine adverse events, according to the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System.
At least 306 people have died from vaccines in the month of January alone, the data shows.
But claims that experimental mRNA jabs are detrimental is a conspiracy, Stern insisted:
“No one’s sitting there conspiring against you. Americans don’t want to create a vaccine that’s going to turn you into a robot or magnetize you. There’s enough Americans now have taken it. Look at us as a sampling where nothing has happened to us. It’s time for you to get it. Now, if you don’t get it, in my America, all hospitals would be closed to you. You’re going to go home and die. That is what you should get.”
In September, Stern warned people who refuse to get Covid vaccinated are “imbeciles” who should “go f*ck yourself.”
“When are we gonna stop putting up with the idiots in this country and just say it’s mandatory to get vaccinated? F*ck ’em. Fuck their freedom. I want my freedom to live,” he said. “I want to get out of the house already. I want to go next door and play chess. I want to go take some pictures.”
A Rasmussen poll survey published on January 13 shows the plurality of Democrat voters shares Stern’s disdain for those who abstain from getting Covid vaccinated.
“Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Democratic voters support temporarily removing parents’ custody of their children if parents refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine,” Rasmussen reports, while Nearly half of Democrats, 45 percent, would like the government to involuntarily detain unvaccinated Americans and have “federal or state government require that citizens temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine.”
Biden Stares Blankly at Reporter Who Asks About Ukrainian President’s “No Minor Incursions” Comment, Motions For Him to Leave (VIDEO)
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on Thursday met with members of the Infrastructure Implementation Task Force to discuss the allocation of money to repair roads, bridges and more.
Biden forgot the name of his infrastructure czar…. again!
“I’m gonna turn it over to the…uh…the guy who, uh…” Biden said of his infrastructure czar, former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu.
After a brief meeting, Biden’s handlers shooed away reporters.
Joe Biden stared blankly at a reporter who asked about the Ukrainian President’s “no minor incursions” comment.
Joe Biden essentially gave a green light to Putin to enter Ukraine during Wednesday’s presser.
“My guess is he will move in,” Biden said of Putin invading Ukraine. “He has to do something.”
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky pushed back on Joe Biden on Thursday.
“We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations. Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky tweeted.
We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations. Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones. I say this as the President of a great power 🇺🇦

Biden motioned for the reporter to leave and didn’t answer his question.
