How to Defeat China Cancer: The Final Showdown Chapter 3: the spread of china cancer throughout the world
By Lin Kenryo,
chapter 3: the spread of china cancer throughout the world
⦁ Stratagem that infected brains of world’s advanced nations
If our immune systems are functioning normally, they would kill cancer cells before they have a chance to grow. But the fact that there is cancer in the world means that our immune systems, even if functioning properly, are not always in their normal state. Using human society as an analogy, we could say that no matter how hard the police work, crimes never disappear. Most people are good citizens, but criminals are always in our midst. The same is true of the international community. The great majority of nations are upstanding, but a few are evil, like cancer. China is one of them.
⦁ China’s abuses of the world’s brain power
Though there are exceptions to this rule, most cancers originate in one place and multiply. When they continue to multiply, cancer cells first exhaust the nutrients in the site of origin. Then they proceed to kill the normal cells. Once the nutrients at the site of origin are consumed, the cancer cells then expand into neighboring tissue, but they also travel to more distant locations through lymph and blood. That is why nations in China’s vicinity, like Taiwan and Japan, are very vulnerable to China cancer. Benign tumors are like local gangsters. They terrorize their neighborhoods, but don’t venture farther afield. But cancer is like an international crime ring that dabbles in all types of crime all over the planet. A massive agglomeration of cancer cells like China is much more malicious than any international crime ring. As stated earlier, the Chinese are guilty of stealing natural resources as well as other evil deeds. But even worse is their appropriation of intellectual resources from other nations. There is a strong possibility that the brain power from other nations could be used for evil purposes, and that the Chinese may end up controlling the entire world.
⦁ Never trust a China specialist with strong connections to China
How has China cancer managed to spread to our brains?
The first step uses a vehicle, i.e., the world’s so-called China specialists. Regardless of their specialties, all who aspire to become “China hands” must go to China, because their surveys and field research must be conducted there. But if they issue research reports that disagree with Chinese government positions, they will find themselves unwelcome in China. For instance, Michael Pillsbury is an American whose specialty is the analysis of Chinese military strategy. When his book, Hundred-Year Marathon, which warns of China’s ambitions, was published in 2016, Pillsbury became persona non grata in China.
Even China specialists who do field research in China will discover that if they wish to continue their work, they will be permitted to use only information that agrees with the Chinese government data. This means that they will be justifying positions taken by the government, thus becoming mouthpieces for the Chinese government, not scholars delving into China’s problems. They cannot claim to have acquired knowledge from their field research, only that they have been to China.
For that reason, China specialists who travel to China frequently and have close ties with important Chinese individuals, are the least trustworthy. I am referring to people like Henry Kissinger, the foremost American panda-hugger. Their China analyses are made to seem objective, always incorporating some criticism. But ultimately, their conclusions refer to “special circumstances in China.” They urge us to accept China’s current situation because there are special circumstances in China that are unalterable. These specialists pretend to be objective and neutral, but they are wolves in sheep’s clothing.
⦁ Chinese corrupt by attacking human weaknesses
The Chinese do almost everything half-heartedly, but when it comes to entertainment, they spare no pains. The reason behind this exception is self-interest; providing entertainment, a type of advance investment, can yield a huge return. We all have weak points. The Chinese are world champions at zeroing in on those weak points and using them to their advantage. Former Taiwan President Lee Teng-hui (1923-2020) often said that the Chinese pinpoint the weaknesses of others and use them to corrupt them.
The Chinese have perfected the art of entertainment, taking hospitality to a new level. Even the Japanese, who have their own entertainment culture, are bowled over by Chinese hospitality. So, it stands to reason that Americans, who are not accustomed to being lavishly entertained, are even more impressed. American businessmen who reside in China are unanimous in describing China as paradise.
In addition to the lure of financial gain and sexual favors, foreign scholars and researchers are seduced by their thirst for prestige (and for information). Most of them are extremely grateful when provided with abundant research funds and the exclusive use of laboratories. Since their thoughts don’t turn to the possibility that they may be participating in crimes against humanity, they unwittingly become accomplices of a dictatorship.
⦁ US opinion leaders march in step with the Chinese
Here is an example illustrating the way China rescinds its investment in a China specialist. An article in the form of an open letter addressed to President Trump and the US Congress and signed by 100 American opinion leaders under the headline “China is not an enemy” appeared in the July 4, 2020 edition of the Washington Post. The letter, which inveighed against the Trump administration, might just as well have been written by the Chinese government. An excerpt follows.
U.S. opposition will not prevent the continued expansion of the Chinese economy, a greater global market share for Chinese companies and an increase in China’s role in world affairs.
The five authors of the letter include J. Stapleton Roy, former US ambassador to China; Susan A. Thornton, former acting Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs; and the late Ezra Vogel, Harvard University professor emeritus. Roy is currently an officer at a consulting firm whose clients are Chinese corporations. Thornton was considered one of the most pro-China officials in the Obama Cabinet. Vogel, famous for his Japan as Number One:
Ezra Vogel Lessons for America, served as the guarantor for Xi Mingze, daughter of Xi Jinping, while she was a student at Harvard.
An open letter signed by 100 influential members of the American business and political communities is bound to have an impact. Who reached out to those 100 individuals, convinced them to declare their advocacy of positions that concur with China, and paid to place the letter in one of the leading American newspapers? Is it totally irrational to assume that the Chinese government was pulling the strings here? And is it surprising that on the day after the open letter appeared in print, the Chinese Foreign Ministry held a press conference at which praise was lavished on it.
⦁ Tougher policy on China favored by 73% of Americans
According to the results of a public opinion poll conducted by the Pew Research Center, published on July 30, 2020, 73% of Americans have an unfavorable impression of China and believe that the US government should be stricter in dealing with the Chinese government. The Trump administration’s hardline policies toward China are in line with public opinion. In other words, both the US government and the American people have awakened to the fact that the US policy of appeasement that has prevailed for more than 40 years now, is misguided.
But the aforementioned 100 opinion leaders have deliberately gone against the flow and are opposing tougher policies. Are they doing so in good conscience? Or is there an invisible force in the background, egging them on? Haven’t they continued to provide nourishment for China cancer, abetting its evil deeds? Isn’t this a typical case of China cancer spreading to the brain?
⦁ bribes and other enticements seduce foreign political hubs
Ordinary cancer cells cease to exist when they have completed distant metastasis and destroyed the tissues at their new home. But China cancer, with its high degree of malignancy, has evolved to the point where it uses distant metastasis to force the tissues it invades to work in its own interests. Infiltrating the core of a nation and then manipulating it is the fastest route to conquest. Nations unwilling to exceed the bounds of propriety would never behave like this. But propriety means nothing to the Chinese; they will resort to any tactics that will help them accomplish their goals.
⦁ Female spy compromises London’s deputy mayor
In July 2020 the spotlight shone on Hidden Hand: Exposing How the Chinese Communist Party Is Reshaping the World, written jointly by two scholars, Australian Clive Hamilton and German Mareike Ohlberg. The book exposes the devious tactics used by the Chinese, describing in detail how the Chinese authorities snare the elite of the Western world.
One noteworthy incident involves the entrapment of a British official. When Prime Minister Boris Johnson was mayor of London, Ian Clement, then deputy mayor, attended the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics in 2008. He was representing London, the venue of the next Olympic Games. At a banquet held in connection with the opening ceremony, an attractive Chinese woman who spoke fluent English approached Clement, and a pleasant conversation ensued. Since the two had hit it off so well, the conversation continued until they arrived at Clement’s hotel, but he has no memory of what happened beyond that point. (It isn’t only Japanese politicians who experience spells of forgetfulness.) When Clement awakened the next morning, the woman was dressed and about to depart. After she left, Clement realized that his room had been ransacked. No money had been stolen, but the data in his Blackberry had been removed.
This chain of events came to light during an investigation by the London police into Clement’s abuse of his GLA (Greater London Authority) credit card.
Since even decorous English gentlemen can become easy targets for such traps, French gentlemen, who are even fonder of women and wine, are even more susceptible. According to an article in the February 1, 2011 edition of the Daily Telegraph, a British newspaper, a top researcher at a French pharmaceutical house was having drinks with a beautiful Chinese woman. The two spent the night together at a hotel. The next morning the Frenchman awakened to the sight of a pornographic film in which he played the starring role. Needless to say, the Chinese found him to be “highly cooperative.”
⦁ Taiwanese and Japanese businessmen easily trapped
Now we know that China spends money to steal information from members of the Western business world. But the Chinese have a way of entrapping Taiwanese and Japanese businessmen that doesn’t cost them a cent. According to a statement made by Hao Fengjun, a former Chinese security official who sought asylum in Australia in 2005, the Chinese often use brothels that are disguised, sign and all, as karaoke bars to entice Taiwanese and Japanese businessmen.
You can’t do business in China without having the right connections. So Taiwanese and Japanese companies interested in doing business in China make a concerted effort to establish connections. And the Chinese intelligence agencies take advantage of their desperation, approaching them in the guise of corporate officers. Since the Taiwanese and Japanese businessmen are so anxious to make connections, they are easy to approach. After the ice has been broken at events like drinking parties, everyone repairs to a karaoke bar. Karaoke is a form of entertainment beloved by both Taiwanese and Japanese. The guests relax when they learn that the Chinese “officers” are regulars there, and eventually start visiting the bar on their own initiative. The ensuing scenario is almost always the same. While the foreign businessmen are having a good time, the police raid the karaoke bar. Engaging in prostitution and patronizing a prostitute are criminal offenses in China. Anyone convicted of hiring a prostitute incurs huge reputational damage. At this point the businessmen are frantic, helpless, and at their wits’ end. The only thought that occurs to them at that moment of crisis moment is their friends, the “officers,” their only hope. They contact the officers and beg them for help, and when that help comes, they are forever indebted to them. And they’ll do anything the officers ask. The truth is that the officers, the karaoke bars, and the police are all in it together. The Chinese acquire the information they want free of charge.
⦁ Every politician visiting China is filmed
In 2004 a Japanese diplomat at the Japanese Consulate in Shanghai was entrapped in a similar fashion. In an attempt to obtain the Japanese government’s diplomatic code, Chinese authorities threatened to expose the diplomat’s affair with a Chinese bar girl. The diplomat ended up hanging himself, leaving a note saying that he could not betray his country. If he had succumbed to the blackmail, the Chinese would gain access to every last bit of Japanese government data. The Japanese government lodged a strong protest against the Chinese, maintaining that their behavior constituted a violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. The Chinese reacted by lodging a counter-protest (this is how thieves behave when caught in the act). This incident was only the tip of the iceberg, but since then the Japanese have continued to adopt a servile stance in their diplomacy with China, spouting platitudes about friendship between the two nations, like lapdogs. One wonders how many more politicians and civil servants have succumbed to Chinese trickery.
Guo Wengui was a spy for the Ministry of State Security; he fled to the US in 2014 and is now a billionaire. Guo has testified that foreign politicians visiting China, without exception, are filmed. These videos are seldom made public – there is no need for that. All the Chinese need to do is hint at the existence of the videos when the politicians are about to leave China. A casual question like “Did you enjoy yourself last night” will do the trick; the victim will guess what is meant. This is how Japanese politicians, who love foreign travel, become faithful collaborators of the Chinese, while taking the utmost care not to incur their wrath. This is the very core of “friendship” between the two nations.
⦁ Has the Nikai-Imai faction taken over the Abe administration?
At around the time when Hidden Hand was published, CSIS (Center for Strategic & International Studies), a prominent American think tank, came out with a report entitled China’s Influence in Japan: Everywhere Yet Nowhere in Particular; the US Department of State gave some support to the project. The report mentions Imai Takaya, Prime Minister Abe’s right-hand man, and very special advisor to the prime minister. It also states that Imai has entered into a partnership with Nikai Toshihiro, secretary-general of the LDP and the most influential member of the pro-China group within the LDP, to form the Nikai-Imai faction, which has been exerting a tremendous influence on Abe Shinzo’s China policy. Also appearing in the report are Minister of Justice Mori Masako and Akimoto Tsukasa, a House of Representatives member. In other words, Japan’s core has already been infected with China cancer, at least according to the US State Department, which has sounded the warning bell. How do the Japanese people feel about that?
⦁ US finally awakens to a crisis
⦁ US mistook China cancer for healthy cells
Why did no one attempt to eradicate China cancer at an early date? A very important reason was the fact that the US, which can excise China cancer, didn’t think it was cancer. Until recently the US was convinced that the cancer cells were healthy, normal cells. The Americans had been lenient, since they thought China was going through a sort of adolescence. The US government continued giving aid to China, hoping that once the Chinese had attained a certain level of prosperity, they would transition from a single-party regime to a parliamentary democracy. Unfortunately, this was like raising a wolf cub in the hope that it will become a faithful pet. A wolf can never be fully tamed. China cancer grew and grew until even the Americans couldn’t control it.
⦁ China and American China specialists have common interests
China is an evil, abnormal nation, and some American scholars are now sounding the warning bell about how a stronger China will pose a threat to the US. Two of them are Gordon Chang and Peter Navarro. Unfortunately, their points of view are not mainstream, and they are shunned by Washington’s elite. Their warnings are laughed off by the China hands in Washington, who view them as ridiculous. But a close look at these so-called China specialists reveals that their interests match perfectly with those of China. They work hand in hand with the Chinese, and recommend policies that are conciliatory to China to the White House. They encourage American corporations to expand into China. The specialists admit that China has problems, but insist that those problems could not endanger the US because the latter is so powerful. Displaying a neutral stance, they are careful not to put China on a pedestal. Leading the initiative in China-related problems, they say that the US should embrace China, and have consistently advocated a high level of involvement with China. In actuality, for 40 years beginning with the Carter administration and ending with the Obama administration, the US has incorporated the specialists’ recommendations into their China policy.
⦁ Conflicting arguments that benefit China
I find it interesting that while some pro-China specialists think that China will not pose much of a threat, others believe the opposite. They think that Chinee influence has grown so much that it can’t be controlled. The economies of the two nations are already deeply intertwined, so much so that they cannot be disentangled or, as someone said, are “too hard to decouple.” In other words, China cancer has become so distended that it can’t be excised. If an attempt is made to excise it nonetheless, the US will be putting itself at risk as well.
These seem to be contradictory arguments, but it is likely that China is happy with either or both. The Americans are saying that China cancer poses no threat and that it has progressed to the point where it can’t be cured. Both opinions arrive at the conclusion that China should be left to do as it pleases. These conflicting arguments send the same message to China: we have no objection to maintaining the status quo.
⦁ Trump administration signals a shift in strategy
Not until the Trump administration came into power did the Americans finally take a long, hard look at the China problem. On December 18, 2017, President Trump presented his National Security Strategy, guidelines for diplomatic and military strategy, to Congress. The document cites Russia and China as revisionist powers seeking to form a world that is diametrically opposite the interests and value system of the US, places importance on the Indo-Pacific region, and establishes Japan, Australia, and India as indispensable allies. In response the US Department of Defense announced on January 19, 2018 that it considers Russia and China central external threats, that China aims to gain control of the Indo-Pacific region, and will seek “displacement of the US to achieve global preeminence in the future.” The Trump administration marked the first time the US saw China and Russia as strategic rivals.
Not long after that, the Trump administration realized that China presented a greater threat than Russia. Having awakened to the seriousness of the situation, Vice President Pence spoke on October 4, 2018 at the Hudson Institute, clearly outlining the US’ intention to have a showdown with China. He indicated American errors in China policy, stating that when the Chinese Communist Party came into power in 1949, “America had hoped that economic liberalization would bring China into greater partnership with us and with the world. Instead, China has chosen economic aggression, which has in turn emboldened its growing military.”
⦁ The time for a paradigm shift has come
Pence’s address sent shock waves through the world, and represented a huge change in the US government’s China policy. With it came an end to the 40-year-long policy of conciliation toward China. The Trump administration changed direction, opposing China in the areas of the economy, technology, military, and ideology.
Amid this huge shift, most Japanese intellectuals (or those who are
Vice President Mike Pence considered as such) maintain that the US-China relationship will never turn into a cold war, as did that between the US and the USSR. This argument is based on their belief that the US-China relationship is different. There was no economic or cultural interchange between the US and the USSR. The US-China relationship has become so interdependent that the two nations are inseparable. Opposition between the US and the USSR, which colored every aspect of human endeavor: ideology, the military, trade, and economics, is absent from US-China relations. Well, so much for the intellectuals. It doesn’t seem to occur to them that things might change. These are the same people who never dreamed that Trump might be elected. They think that what happened in the past will continue to happen in the future.
⦁ Changes in the world can veer from the past
If changes in the world always occurred along the lines of history, dinosaurs would probably still be in control of the world. The fact that they are not means that there have been huge paradigm shifts throughout history. And now we are in the midst of another such shift. The US-China relationship is intertwined in every imaginable area. For that reason, it will become more bitter and bloodier than the Cold War between the US and the USSR. If we were to liken the Cold War to a battle between two dinosaurs, the opposition between the US and China is like humans battling cancer cells in their bodies. If we think that they can’t combat the cancer cells in our bodies, we will become laughingstocks. But China specialists are saying exactly that with straight faces. They think China consists not of cancer cells, but of beneficial, normal cells. Their perception is so infantile to be not worth discussing.
⦁ Trump administration will not allow “too big to fail”
Vice President Pence’s address represented a strategic shift. The Trump administration has vowed to do a complete overhaul of the conciliatory China policy in force up to now, and will pronounce China a threat to American national security. President Trump must be aware that the two nations’ interests are so intertwined that since China has become such a huge presence in the US, the two nations cannot afford to become enemies. But Trump will not tolerate defeatism, i.e., the belief that China is “too big to fail.”
All politicians, without exception, embrace two isms: letting sleeping dogs lie, and toadyism, or yielding to evil forces. While problems are still minor, they say there is no need to resolve them. When they grow serious, the politicians run away, claiming that they can’t be resolved. If a corporation adopted such an easygoing attitude, it would fail almost immediately. One must wonder why it is tolerated in the world of politics.
Politics is an irresponsible occupation. Politicians will promise anything during an election campaign. Once they’re elected, however, it’s a different story: they weasel out of their public promises. But Trump, who survived in the business world, won’t tolerate such excuses. He must find a way to resolve the problem, and soon, precisely because it has become so serious.
⦁ The Chinese people and the CCP are not one and the same
No strategy will solve the very serious China problem right away. But it’s easier to get to the heart of the matter if we split the problem in two: the China problem and the CCP problem. The method suggested by Vice President Pence involves exactly that. The CCP has 90 million members, but they are in the minority, given that the population of China is 1.4 billion. The key to winning the battle is to reduce enemy forces and increase allies, a simple, clear tactic. The first step toward resolving the China problem is to win over the majority of the Chinese people, and then destroy the CCP, the core presence in China.
But before adopting such a strategy, the Americans must acknowledge the fact that China is a cancer. Until now the US perceived the cancer cells as healthy cells, and continued to nourish them lavishly. Japan, the US, and other advanced nations are responsible for the growth that China has experienced. The US has awakened to the error of its ways, but Japan and the European nations have not faced this fact – their eyes are still shut tight.
⦁ Top Justice Department officials’ speeches show Trump administration is serious
Vice President Pence’s speech demonstrates that the US is serious. But many were doubtful that administrative authorities would draw up the necessary policies. The reason for their skepticism is that most American administrative bureaucrats, like their Japanese counterparts, have been pro-China. In fact, the State Department is a pro-China stronghold. No matter how many clearly confrontational policies are drafted toward China, it’s obvious that the pro-China bureaucrats will drag their feet until they fail.
That such behavior will definitely not be tolerated was indicated in speeches given by FBI Director Christopher Wray (on July 7, 2020) and Attorney-General William Barr (shortly thereafter on July 16). In their speeches both men used words of caution, citing actual Chinese espionage cases. At the same time, they mentioned the names of people who had been arrested for cooperating with Chinese espionage and counterintelligence activities. The speeches by Justice Department officials who have the power to exercise authority and enact laws send a message that will focus the minds of administrative bureaucrats: you will be investigated if you have suspicious relationships with China. This point is very important. Officials can set guidelines at meetings, but if the people doing the actual work don’t follow through, nothing will change. Since Trump learned that lesson well through his experience in the business world, he was probably issuing a warning to the bureaucrats via the officials.
⦁ FBI director and US attorney general sound the alarm
⦁ Message from US to China: We’re serious
On July 7, 2020 Christopher Wray, director of the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) addressed an audience at the Hudson Institute. His speech was entitled “China’s Attempt To Influence U.S. Institutions.” In the past, heads of intelligence agencies have addressed Congress, but in most cases, the content of their speeches, e.g., details about their investigations, was not made public. The fact that the FBI director even delivered this speech is in itself a message: the US fully intends to eradicate China cancer. At the beginning of his powerful speech, Wray said the following.
The greatest long-term threat to our nation’s information and intellectual property, and to our economic vitality is the counterintelligence and economic espionage threat from China. It’s a threat to our economic security – and by extension, to our national security.
The Chinese government is apparently convinced that if its spies succeed in acquiring economic and scientific technology, it will be able to surpass the US soon and emerge unsurpassed at the top of the world. In other words, China is harboring a thief’s ferocious ambition: making a national commitment to stealing other nations’ technology and using it to achieve control of the entire world.
⦁ Why not call it the Thousand Thieves Program?
We know for a fact that the Chinese have been appropriating technology from the American military industry and the private sector. Additionally, they have nurtured as many as 8,000 intellectual property thieves who have stolen state-of-the-art technology and data from the US. The Chinese call the scheme in which these thieves participate the Thousand Talents Program. It commenced in 2004, when it was a plan to have Chinese researchers working overseas acquire technology and research results and deliver them to China. But it gradually expanded to involve non-Chinese researchers as well.
Noteworthy is the case of Charles Lieber, former chairman of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University and leading chemist in the field of nanotechnology, who was arrested by US authorities on January 28, 2020. According to Boston federal authorities, Professor Lieber received payments of $50,000 per month from China, as well as $500,000 for establishing a laboratory at Wuhan University of Technology. Scholars are not usually bought as easily as politicians, who are the embodiment of power and ambition. But China’s determination, in addition to its use of traditional tactics like honeytrap and money traps, makes it much shrewder. The Chinese appeal to scholars’ desire for enhanced reputations and knowledge, to manipulate them at will. If the targets are elite Chinese living abroad, all the better because it’s easy to threaten their relatives remaining in China. Thus, the communist government perpetrating these crimes as a nation is a huge criminal organization with the trappings of a government. It is an immoral garbage heap worse even than the Mafia. It would be more accurate to call the Thousand Talents Program the Thousand Thieves Program because it uses profits and fear to steal. Professor Lieber’s case is just the tip of the iceberg. We must assume that many other Americans of his stature have fallen into the Chinese trap. China cancer is frightening precisely because it doesn’t disappear when it accomplishes distant metastasis; it destroys healthy cells at its new home.
Half of the nearly 5,000 espionage cases being investigated by the FBI are China-related. On average, an individual suspected of spying for the Chinese is exposed every 10 hours. This statistic reveals the seriousness of distant metastasis of China cancer to the US.
⦁ The fox hunt: Xi Jinping’s deadly game
As soon as Xi Jinping grasped the reins of power in China, he purged one political enemy after another in the name of an anti-corruption campaign. Some corrupt bureaucrats who became his targets fled overseas with their families, moving their assets abroad. A constitutional state would ask the destination country authorities to arrest the fugitives, but that is too much trouble for Xi Jinping. As the boss of China, he chooses one of two options: (1) sends one of his underlings to the destination country and abducts the fugitive, or (2) has the fugitive murdered, making it look like a suicide. Xi has named the pursuit of yet uncaptured Chinese political refugees abroad the “fox hunt,” a deadly game that he enjoys immensely. His practice of recreating action films featuring gangsters exposes his true, cold-blooded nature.
⦁ Xi Jinping is serious about controlling the world
If Xi were simply a brutal autocrat, the world would not have to take him seriously. But Xi is a difficult case because he is hell-bent on bringing all the peoples of the world under his control. To him the most effective way of making the world surrender to him is capturing for himself the internet communication network. To make his dream come true Xi has turned to Huawei, the world’s leading technology company. And in charge of accomplishing that noble task is Huawei’s
Ren Zhengfei founder, Ren Zhengfei, a former PLA officer. Huawei is actually a part of the Chinese military industry. When it was founded, it had virtually no proprietary technology. It copied technology developed in advanced IT nations like the US, and expanded into the international market by dumping tons of its products everywhere. The company succeeded in becoming one of the world’s leading communications producers thanks to support from the Chinese government. With its number one share, Huawei has not only built internet communication equipment, but also taken charge of maintenance and inspection, and the management of data.
⦁ Have the thief build a safe and then give him control of it
This is exactly like having a thief build a safe for you and then putting him in charge of it. Huawei’s slogan might as well be “I’m a skilled thief, so I’ll make sure no one can steal from your safe.” There is nothing that moves people like the sincerity of a reformed criminal. Touched by the thief’s earnest appeal, virtuous ladies and gentlemen had the thief build a safe and asked him to watch over it. Their hearts are truly beautiful. The cancer cells are shedding tears of joy, just like the crocodile after a banquet.
Then one day, one of the gentlemen realizes that the safe is empty. He tries to investigate, but the ladies and gentlemen refuse to believe him. “The former thief swore he wouldn’t steal, so he can’t be responsible.” They behave like innocent children, but most of them are compromised, crafty politicians, miserable humans whom the Chinese have compromised, probably German or Italian politicians.
⦁ The Chinese version of win-win
Since 2017, when Xi Jinping spoke at the 19th CCP National Congress, he has been expounding ad nauseam about building a Chinese-led community of common destiny. Since in his eyes, the era of China has already arrived, he cannot wait any longer. So, when his second term arrived, Xi became even more belligerent. US Attorney General William Barr in a speech delivered on July 16, 2020, issued a signal. He said that China’s Belt and Road strategy has piled debt upon Asian and African nations and taken control of their infrastructure. China’s objective is to control important trade routes in Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Pacific, thus standing at the center of the world stage.
China does not seek to achieve a rank equal to that of the leading industrialized nations, it seeks to supersede them. Moreover, China has no intention of achieving this goal through fair competition. China is attempting to steal intellectual property, harming the US through hacking and other types of attacks, and thus achieving hegemony. The Chinese perception of the term “win-win” is not the one that is understood in the West (something that is advantageous to all parties involved), but to the Chinese it means that only China wins, or rephrased, scores a “double win.”
⦁ China’s accomplices: “China problem” specialists
At long last the US has realized that China’s aim is not to coexist with the world, but to control it. Rational people would think that the concept of “world domination” exists only in novels and films. But that is really what Xi Jinping is after. He is just as insane as Hitler. Why do people who call themselves China specialists refuse to face these facts? We could forgive them if they were simply avoiding reality, but most of them close their eyes to China’s rapacity, and act as accomplices of the CCP, which attempts to hide China’s evil deeds. We can only conclude that their brain cells have already been invaded by China cancer.
⦁ Trump is dredging the Washington swamp
Even so, there are some specialists who have pointed out the danger of the CCP government. But few politicians have been willing to listen to them. If the Trump administration had not come into being, neglect of the China problem would continue. Trump calls Washington DC, corrupted by special interests, a swamp. Until he took office, he may not have known that most of the special interests were backed by Chinese money, but he was smart enough to figure that out.
Because Trump had no connections to Washington, during his election campaign he said he could demolish the special-interest structure. Many campaigners make public promises like this, but few of them keep them. But Trump has acted in accordance with that promise.
Predictably, the more Trump tried to drain the swamp, the more resistance he faced. Those who stand to lose their vested interests will demonstrate resistance with a fervor stronger than that of those who would topple them. One needs an iron will to overcome the resistance of vested interests.
But thanks to Trump’s housecleaning, more people have come to understand the harm done by Chinese interests. Now there is a fairly wide perception that China cancer is a dangerous presence that must be removed. At this point surgery must be done, and it must be exhaustive and thorough. The US is in the midst of a grand surgical operation for the excision of China cancer, and it must complete the procedure.
⦁ Chinese parasites in the US
Robert O’Brien, a US national security advisor, did not mince words when he stated that US China policy has been wrong for the past 40 years, adding that that policy had enabled China to become so mighty as to threaten US security. But to correct the policy that had continued for 40 years would not be easy. Numerous politicians, special-interest groups, corporations, investors, social welfare organizations, and organized crime groups have been working hand in hand with China and feeding off the American people. The most difficult aspect of reform is wresting vested interests away from those wallowing in them. When people lose something, they experience severe pain. That is why they resist so strongly. Now people who are benefiting from Chinese interests are resisting fiercely, along with China.
It is so disappointing that Japan, which has been undermined by China cancer just as much as the US, is sitting back doing nothing, without realizing the full brunt of the US’ struggle.
We cannot coexist with cancer, much less with China cancer. It will hurt, but there must be some way Japan can help the US as it approaches radical surgery.
Vice President Mike Pence
