Dr. Shizhong Chen

About Dr. Shizhong Chen

Dr. Shizhong Chen has been active in projects concerning China for over 30 years. He has founded, co-founded, or been spokesperson for a number of organizations concerning China, and has spoken extensively on issues related to China.

Dr. Chen began his activism in 1989, when he helped to organize supporting activities during the 1989 Beijing Student Movement. Outraged by the June 4th Massacre, Dr. Chen founded the Tiananmen Square Foundation, has served on the Board of the Press Freedom Guardian, and was elected as the vice president of The Independent Federation of Chinese Students and Scholars in the U.S.

Upon learning the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China, Dr. Chen founded the Falun Gong Human Rights Working Group in 2001, and has since submitted over 100,000 cases of human rights abuses against Falun Gong practitioners to UN Special Rapporteurs. He also founded and is President of the Conscience Foundation, a non-profit organization to publicize and remind people that the human conscience is the very essence of humanity.

Dr. Chen has spoken extensively on the issue of human rights in China. Since 2001, he has frequented meetings of the U.N. Human Rights Commission in Geneva (now the Human Rights Council), spoken to the Council, to Special Rapporteurs, and at many forums to forward the cause of human rights. He was a panelist at an annual meeting of the California Bar Association, has spoken to Amnesty International’s US West Region, and has made numerous appearances at various forums and on radio and TV shows and interviews.

Among the books that Dr. Chen has authored or co-authored are: Stories of Conscience, The Falun Gong Report, Falun Gong, Humanity’s Last Stand, now in its third edition, and, most recently, a comprehensive report on the extensive psychiatric torture taking place in China.

In 2005, Dr. Chen conceived the idea of the Courageous People, Spirited Land TV series and implemented the project. The programs have since become very popular in China where viewers have been disseminating them defying Chinese regime’s prohibition.

From 2010, Dr. Chen has given a presentation on The Renaissance of Chinese Culture over one hundred Rotary Clubs, Kiwanis Clubs, Lion Clubs, and various colleges.

From 2012, Dr. Chen has been working with a group of activists in China to use China’s current laws to defend civil rights.

Dr. Chen was born in China in 1962. At 15, he entered the gifted program at China University of Science and Technology. He came to the U.S. in 1982 to study and received his Ph.D. degree in molecular biology at University of California, San Diego. He currently owns and runs a molecular biology startup in San Diego.

Here is an excellent read on the Epoch Times:

 TheLastStand-2009-High.pdf  This link is too large to put on the site but you can load it through Google drive to your own computer.  It's a very interesting read from Dr. Chen.  The .pdf is really a nice format for the article but the important part can be found here if you have trouble with the .pdf  Falun Gong, Humanity’s Last Stand – Chinascope





Here is a link to one of the manuscripts mentioned in Dr. Chen's bio, and may provide some background to a topic that will be covered in our show:

Info on the $40 billion Ukraine bill that passed the House last week:

This is probably more information than most of you want on the Ukraine bill but the most important thing to note is that the United States did NOT give the Ukraine a $40 billion check.  The bulk of the funds went to our own country to replace what has already been sent. It also set up contingency funds to be held in our own country in case things on the ground change – the money is appropriated, but not spent.  Note that all of the COVID spending, and a bunch of other nonsense was cut from the bill prior to passage.  I know that there are SO many other priorities that need to be addressed and yet, with the Democrats in charge, we will not see them funded.

I’m happy to get you more information/clarification on anything.

I’ve attached a few vantage points for you on this:

  • Ukraine Supplemental LB Final Updated: Detailed review of the bill by the RSC (Republican Study Committee) with highlighted issues conservative members had about the bill
  • HR 7691, The Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act:  GOP Appropriations Committee two-pager on Ukraine
  • Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act Summary:   Dem provided report on the Ukraine bill section by section.


In a pinch, here are the quick notes on the bill:

  • Provides $9 billion to backfill Department of Defense inventories of material transferred to Ukraine and $3.9 billion to support U.S. military operations in Europe.
    • $15 million is provided for hardship pay for US troops deployed to the region
  • Includes additional military assistance for Ukraine and other regional partners, such as:
    • $6 billion for the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative
    • $4 billion in Foreign Military Financing to help Ukraine and other regional allies procure US-made weapons
    • $8 billion in additional Presidential Drawdown Authority, used to transfer defense equipment to Ukraine (money held in suspense for possible future use)
  • Provides $15 billion in humanitarian aid and economic assistance, including $7.5 billion to support the Government of Ukraine. This goes to our State Dept and allies – again, not a check to the Ukraine.
  • Includes $119 million for the Departments of Justice and Treasury to investigate and enforce Russia sanctions, including seizing sanctioned assets, such as luxury superyachts linked to Russian oligarchs.

The narrative around this is that we “gave” $40 billion to the Ukraine.  We did not do that.
