Anyone ever hear of "The Epoch Times" publication?

I got one of their pro-Cheetolini papers today in the mail... pure trash.

Their address (as given on the mail) is 3231 S Halsted Street, Chicago IL 60608.
(A web search says that address is a UPS store.)

So I websearched The Epoch Times and one of the hits
https://clustrmaps.com/a/u3oik/
said they're at 3249 S Halsted Street, Chicago IL 60608.
Looks like a private residence with businesses registered to it?
(The bottom of that page mentions Epochtimes twice, under License Holders.)

I've no idea what all of that means (if anything).
But the weird thing is that I live way up in northern WI.
How the ding-dong did I get on their mailing list?

2. They're nuts

Associated with the Falun Gong movement. Really pro hard core religious right. They love themselves some Trump and no fucked up conspiracy theory is too fucked up.

4. Epoch Times is a propaganda front for Falun Gong cult

Falun Gong is a Chinese spiritual group stressing slow movement workouts, meditation. They are outlawed in China, adherents jailed. The founder fled to the US. He claims technology, which is evil, was brought to earth by Aliens taking human form. Examples of this evil technology are airplanes and computers. He claims meditation can cure diseases including cancer. He claims leaders of his group can levitate and walk through walls. They believe each race has their own separate heaven. This group and other dissident Chinese groups hope Trump can cause the Chinese government to fall. Falun Gong created Epoch Times and many other fronts in many languages. None reveal that they were created by Falun Gong. On their various sites they promote groups and ideas which bolster Trump. And they attack socialism and communism. They have highly intelligent managers who are careful to not promote obviously stupid conspiracy theories.

7. Lost a friend to that cult.

He wound up getting arrested in Chiner and then booted out. No clue where he wound up.

This is nigh on 20 years ago now.

5. Thanks everyone!

Never heard of any of that stuff before - wow, there sure are a lot of crazies around. Their stuff was addressed to 'Occupant' so I guess they're just fishing for suckers.

Thanks again!

9. Up here most of the mags/rags are about

Fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, etc...

If they can't fillet it, shoot it, or gas it up and take it for a ride,
they usually don't bother reading about it.
