American soldiers fought wars in Korea and Vietnam to prevent communist encroachment. From that the Chinese Communist Party learned that the U.S. cannot be defeated militarily, so they are deploying intellectuals, phony diplomats, and leveraging technology to spy on America.
China’s ruling class has been abundantly clear that they seek to impose communism on free people by gaining economic superiority. During the Obama-Biden years, the Asian power leapfrogged the U.S. as the top economy in the world. In response, President Trump defeated China in a trade war and continues to meet its illicit activities with determination and tough sanctions. That’s largely why China has resorted to widespread spy tactics to infiltrate U.S. companies, and steal innovation.
Recent reports indicate that Texas A&M professor Zhengdong Cheng conducted research for NASA and hid ties to the communists. The FBI reportedly uncovered Cheng’s alignment with the Guangdong University of Technology in China. According to officials such as John C. Demers, assistant attorney general for National Security, the Chinese government uses its Thousand Talents Program to leverage communist sympathizers and pilfer off U.S. technology secrets. U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick has demonstrated a fierce determination to stem the tide of communist assets that undermine Democracy by making arrests.
“China is building an economy and academic institutions with bricks stolen from others all around the world,” Patrick reportedly stated. “While 1.4 million foreign researchers and academics are here in the U.S. for the right reasons, the Chinese Talents Program exploits our open and free universities. These conflicts must be disclosed, and we will hold those accountable when such conflict violates the law.”
The revelation comes on the heels of four researchers in Florida who were caught with undisclosed ties to China. Reports indicate they were funneling information about cutting-edge American advancements to the communists.
In July, the head of a political organization pleaded guilty in Washington, D.C., to wiretapping government employees. The man identified as Jun Wei “Dickson” Yeo, reportedly recruited a civilian working on the F-35B military aircraft and another in the Obama-Biden state department. He had been spying since 2015 with impunity while Joe Biden prepared a lopsided trade deal that favored China’s economy.
In recent months, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ordered the raid and closure of China’s consulate in Houston, which as a front for spies posing as diplomats. Members of the consulate had strong military backgrounds and were caught lying on diplomatic visas. False visa statements are a federal crime.
Pres. Trump effectively slapped bans on technology companies such as TikTok and Huawei for ties to high-ranking communist officials. Although these outfits claim they do not share sensitive information about Americans with the Chinese government, so did those arrested for spying.
“Right now, they don’t have any rights unless we give it to them. So, if we’re going to give them the rights, then … it has to come into this country,” Pres. Trump reportedly said about TikTok “It’s a great asset. But it’s not a great asset in the United States unless they have approval in the United States.”
Experts believe that President Trump has long-term plans to end American reliance on China and sever economic ties. The move will ultimately increase U.S. job opportunities, raise wages, and prevent the communists from easy access to the innovations they’ve been stealing for decades.
