According to a stunning new report, Princeton University one of the top Ivy League institutions in America, has taken millions of dollars from a Chinese state-sponsored University and the founder of a think tank aligned with the Communist party.

As The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The Ivy League school has received $4.6 million from CCP-controlled Peking University to fund research hubs for drug development and computer science. Tung Chee-hwa, the founder of the China-U.S. Exchange Foundation, has given at least $1 million to fund Princeton’s Center on Contemporary China. Tung and the exchange foundation are both central to the Communist Party’s foreign influence network.

China has aggressively cultivated relationships with American universities and think tanks in recent years. While some of these partnerships aim to promote genuine student and research exchange, FBI director Christopher Wray has warned of China’s increased use of “non-traditional collectors (of intelligence), especially in the academic setting.” The Justice Department in 2018 formed the China Initiative to root out China’s efforts to steal technology from American businesses and universities and to influence American policymakers.

Princeton and other elite schools have bristled at the China Initiative, saying it creates a “chilling effect” for academic research and stokes “anti-Asian bias.” Nearly 200 faculty members at Princeton University urged Attorney General Merrick Garland in October to shutter the initiative. They asserted that investigations have not focused on economic espionage, but instead have targeted researchers who failed to disclose their work for the Chinese government.

While Princeton faculty fume, the school’s donations from China are the sort of activity that the China Initiative is designed to monitor, according to one national security expert.

Some, including Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, have pointed out that such close ties between US univerities and China create potentially serious national security risks.

Not so many years ago there was a law that foriegn investments in Newspapers, magazines and broadcast were forbidden. Then the law was reminded leading to today’s Fake News. The same has been done at colleges and universities. Both areas have kead to the communist/socialist influence and the degrading of our country. This must he stopped by making all news outlets divest themselves of foriegn investment and tighter regulations put on foriegn donations to educational institutions along with strong enforcement.
