Australia, concerned about rising Chinese influence, will ban foreign political donations to prevent external interference in domestic politics, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Tuesday. Turnbull said that foreign powers were making“unprecedented and increasingly sophisticated attempts to influence the political process” in Australia and throughout the world, and cited “disturbing reports about Chinese influence.”

Australia and New Zealand are among roughly a third of countries worldwide that allow foreign donations to political parties. Australia’s new laws, modeled in part on the US Foreign Agents Registration Act, would criminalize foreign interference and require the registration of lobbyists working for nation states, Reuters quoted Turnbull as saying.

China is innocent, and it is merely a calculated move to undermine the Labor Party's credibility.
Believe it or not, it's true.

Since when are Communists psychologists who can identify mental aberrations better than trained doctors do? Of course, China is trying by  crooked means to secretly influence politics in major Western countries such as Australia. It also has been found to be active in Germany. The Bundesverfassungsschuty has identified Chinese secret services as the sources that put Chinese people in LinkedIn accounts where they register under false names, get in touch with targeted Westerners whom they then court and trap with inviting them to China where the foreign targets then are made to share information with the Chinese that might be classified.

An estimated 10'000 Germans have been contacted by Chinese snoops or agents.

China's Official Virginity Rules

Rule No. One: China always is innocent.

Rule No.Two: Should China be guilty of some travesty, crime, felony or misdeed, Rule No. 1 automatically goes into service...
