Sunday Talks: Maria Bartiromo Interviews Gordon Chang, Subject: China and North Korea…

CTH has been looking, unsuccessfully, for China SME’s who have insight on the DC lobbying angle by Chinese foreign nationals and the hidden story of how the Trump administration might be confronting that aspect.

Gordon Chang briefly touches on that note during a discussion segment on the overall outcome of President Trump’s 12-day visit to Asia.

Apparently, if Chang’s sources are accurate (likely they are), the notification by POTUS Trump toward Chairman Xi Jinping, of the lobbyist warning did take place [Video 02:25].


The foreign influence lobbying is a critical element for us domestically in the larger geopolitical strategy.  Chinese nationals pay our congressional representatives millions of dollars to purchase U.S. foreign policy.  CTH is cautiously optimistic this is a key element of Robert Mueller.

China, Russia and the downstream North Korean enablers (Cuba, Venezuela, etc.) are the keys to stopping the DPRK. As such each national interest is being targeted and leveraged as part of the N-Korean strategy.

♦ President Trump continues to pressure Russia via energy.
♦ President Trump continues to pressure China via trade outcomes.
♦ President Trump is leveraging financial sanctions on Venezuela along with energy pressure; and simultaneously breaking away from former short-sighted benefits for Cuba delivered that were delivered by President Obama.


Hopefully CTH readers can see how comprehensive this strategy is.  Unfortunately you won’t see it outlined in U.S. media.

    The US media?? Good one sd. They pay more attention to themselves then millions of us do. The people that watch that garbage are an ever decreasing population of idiots. If you’re getting your information from the left dominated media, you’re forcing some poor tree to support your worthless existence.

    with regard to intellectual property theft, currency manipulation, attempts to displace the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency and barriers to U.S. companies doing business in China… everything else seems to be OK…… /sarc

    Been following Gordon Chang for sometime now. He doesn’t nail it 100% of the time, but I have to say that he is correct via-a-vis the Chinese more often than not.

    Pakistan should be on the media’s radar.
    Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel,
    “Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you
    to the Promised Land.”
    Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt (Democrat)
    said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel,
    this is the Promised Land.”
    Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the
    price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised land!
    I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the
    economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement
    funds, etc… I called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English,
    I was connected to a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was
    suicidal. They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck.

    Pardon me, but what are SME’s?

    Sundance should look at the US-China Business Council and their activities particularly Erin Ennis.

    This is a good backgrounder on lobbyist activities and how the US was skunked by China on trade.

    All lobbying by China goes through the CCP and its so-called ‘private’ sector agents. One of the new rules put in place by Chairman Xi is that all businesses (domestic or foreign) operating in China have to have a Party apparatchik with a seat on the Board.


  11. A2 says:

    Two Chinese think tanks that operate in the US are CEF (China Energy Fund) and a new kid on the block (established in 2015) ICAS (Institute for China American Studies) which is very sketchy as sundance likes to say.

      To give a bit more background on CEFC,
      “US arrests two over massive Chinese oil bribery scheme in Africa”

      “US authorities have arrested Hong Kong’s former home affairs secretary and the ex-foreign minister of Senegal for orchestrating a multimillion dollar bribery scheme in Africa on behalf of a top Chinese energy company, with some deals arranged in the halls of the United Nations.

      US officials announced on Monday that Hong Kong’s Patrick Chi Ping Ho and Senegal’s Cheikh Gadio had sent huge bribes to high-level officials in Chad and Uganda to secure business advantages for the Chinese company. They are charged with violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, international money laundering and conspiracy, the US Justice Department department said in a statement.”

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?! “With three carrier groups you can conduct round the clock operations but with two you cannot?!” Are you KIDDING ME?! That’s HUGE B.S. The crew of a carrier as well as the crews of its supporting ships in the group are manned to support 24 hour watch in either 8 or 12 hour shifts.

    A SINGLE carrier group can conduct round the clock operations just fine.

    This guy is talking out of his rear end. He has no naval military experience. I, on the other hand, was aboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower during war time and I worked in “ops.”

    Hardly a SME, but your take re: Gordon Chang seems to be verified over a period of years.

    Reviewing and a variety of other publications, it seems the largest Chinese company for whom lobbying is done is AliBaba, and the issues are trade, NAFTA, and intellectual property rights. No surprise there.

    The hidden story seems to be how the Chinese lobbying firms have taken to funding think tanks such as the Brookings Institute and CSIS, thus rendering the think tank “scholars” and “experts” as de facto lobbyists for China by influencing D.C. Swamp Creatures.

    Listening to Gordon Chang on Batchelor twice last week in five diff segments, you and Mr. Chang seem to share the same pov. The discussions included Pres Trump’s recent trip to China, and how Pres Trump appears to have prevailed and come out on top. Parris Chang, a NoKo activist, was included in one discussion and is prob considered a SME.

    Other topics included Taiwan and NoKo, and the recent NoKo defector. The belief is that that the NoKo elites are the ones rebelling against Little Rocket Man, and that Xi may be the one to affect regime change in NoKo with SoKo being the willing stooge. Prob is, seems China is just a wee bit financially overextended, and the NoKo obvious collapse may be the bridge too far for Xi. The Fed raising interest rates later this year is going to effect Chinese bond markets, and not in a good way. We shall see.

    The “Chinese agents operating on U.S. soil” @ 2:25 refers to the recent arrests of more Chinese spies in the U.S., imo.

    Would that M Bartiromo had an hour for an in-depth interview. Odds are more than 53 ppl would learn something (the viewership for those think tanks is abysmally low).
