The CCP has invested billions into a disinformation campaign through which it is sowing disinformation worldwide.

From The Wall Street Jorunal. The Chinese government is pouring billions of dollars annually into a global campaign of disinformation, using investments abroad and an array of tactics to promote Beijing’s geopolitical aims and squelch criticism of its policies, according to a new State Department assessment.

Beijing’s broad-ranging efforts, the assessment said, feature online bot and troll armies, legal actions against those critical of Chinese companies and investments and content-sharing agreements with media in Latin America and Africa.

Other tactics include laundering English-language articles written by fake authors in influential local media and placing diplomatic pressure on foreign universities and newspapers that publish content deemed offensive.

China, which has a close partnership with Russia, has also used its information apparatus to reinforce the Kremlin’s narratives on the Ukraine war. …

Russia, the report said, has responded in kind by promoting Chinese propaganda related to Beijing’s claims to the democratic, self-governing island of Taiwan and other interests of the People’s Republic of China.

“Beijing has invested billions of dollars to construct an information ecosystem in which PRC propaganda and disinformation gain traction and become dominant,” said the report released Thursday by the State Department’s Global Engagement Center, which was established in 2016 to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation abroad. Many of these efforts are aimed at developing nations, the report said, adding that China’s campaign, if left unchallenged, might succeed in reshaping a global information landscape, leading other governments to take decisions more closely aligned with Beijing. …

The State Department report is the latest effort to draw attention to what Western officials and cybersecurity officials have said is China’s rapidly expanding — and increasingly ambitious — global information manipulation efforts. Though sometimes unsuccessful, China is expected to continue investing more in the coming years to distort international dialogue around its priorities, including Taiwan and the South China Sea, U.S. officials have said. …

Through “flooding,” a tactic that manipulates search engine or hashtag results by coordinating large volumes of inauthentic posts, China has sought to make content that is critical of China harder to find. One flooding campaign sought to drown out efforts by foreign activists to focus on human-rights abuses in Xinjiang province by trying to “hijack” the hashtag used by the critics, the report said. …

Father God, there is so much darkness in our world today. So many attacks on our freedom are constantly rising. We lift our eyes to You from where our help comes.

We see nations like China and Russia flexing their muscles, spreading fear, aligning together to propagate misinformation tactics and become a threat to our country and others. They believe in their strength and power to carry them through. That is their god. We believe in You, and we wait on You knowing that your timing is always perfect. 2 Peter 3:9 says, ‘The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness: but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance”.

We must not grow weary but we must keep praying and believing for in due time God will answer our prayers. Father God, You always hear our prayers, and Your ears after inclined to our petitions. We claim your promise in Isaiah 41:10 -“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold your with my righteous right hand”.

We also have that promise in Deut. 31:6 – “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you”.

Thank you, Father for Your love, Your promises and Your holy Spirit which strengthens and guides us day by day. We pray for your deliverance and protection from our enemies and adversaries. We give you the praise and the glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen
