Important Context: Understanding The Eagle, Panda and Red Dragon…

Nuance and subtlety is everything in China.  Culturally harsh tones are seen as a sign of weakness and considered intensely impolite in public displays between officials; especially within approved and released statements by officials representing the government.

There is no doubt in my mind that President Trump has a very well thought out long-term strategy regarding China.  President Trump takes strategic messaging toward the people of china very importantly.  President Trump has, very publicly, complimented the friendship he feels toward President Xi Jinping; and praises Chairman Xi for his character, strength and purposeful leadership.

To build upon that projected and strategic message – President Trump seeded the background by appointing Ambassador Terry Branstad, a 30-year personal friend of President Xi Jinping.

To enhance and amplify the message – and broadcast cultural respect – U.S. President Trump used Mar-a-Lago as the venue for their visit, not the White House.  And President Trump’s beautiful granddaughter, Arabella, sweetly serenaded the Chinese First Family twice in Mandarin Chinese song showing the utmost respect for the guests and later for the hosts.

Why the constant warm messaging?

What is the purpose?

What does all this have to do with a trade confrontation?

Historic Chinese geopolitical policy, vis-a-vis their totalitarian control over political sentiment (action) and diplomacy through silence, is evident in the strategic use of the space between carefully chosen words, not just the words themselves.

Each time China takes aggressive action (red dragon) China projects a panda face through silence and non-response to opinion of that action;…. and the action continues. The red dragon has a tendency to say one necessary thing publicly, while manipulating another necessary thing privately.  The Art of War.

President Trump is the first U.S. President to understand how the red dragon hides behind the panda mask.

It is specifically because he understands that Panda is a mask that President Trump messages warmth toward the Chinese people, and pours vociferous praise upon Xi Jinping, while simultaneously confronting the geopolitical doctrine of the Xi regime.

In essence Trump is mirroring the behavior of China while confronting their economic duplicity.

China has no cultural or political space between peace and war; they are a historic nation based on two points of polarity.  They see peace and war as coexisting with each other.

China accepts and believes opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.  Flowing between these polar states is a natural dynamic to be used -with serious contemplation- in advancing objectives as needed.

Peace or war. Win or lose. Yin and Yang. Culturally there is no middle position in dealings with China; they are not constitutionally capable of understanding or valuing the western philosophy of mutual benefit where concession of terms gains a larger outcome.  If it does not benefit China, it is not done. The outlook is simply, a polarity of peace or war.  In politics or economics the same perspective is true.  It is a zero-sum outlook.

Therefore, when you see China publicly use strong language – it indicates a level of internal disposition beyond the defined western angst.  Big Panda becomes Red Dragon; there is no mid-status or evolutionary phase.  Every American associated with investment, economics and China would be well advised to put their business affairs in order accordingly.

President Trump will not back down from his position; the U.S. holds all of the leverage and the issue must be addressed.  President Trump has waiting three decades for this moment.  This President and his team are entirely prepared for this.

We are finally confronting the geopolitical Red Dragon, China!

The Olive branch and arrows denote the power of peace and war. The symbol in any figure’s right hand has more significance than one in its left hand. Also important is the direction faced by the symbols central figure. The emphasis on the eagles stare signifies the preferred disposition. An eagle holding an arrow also symbolizes the war for freedom, and its use is commonly referred to the liberation fight of righteous people from abusive influence. The eagle on the original seal created for the Office of the President showed the gaze upon the arrows.

The Eagle and the Arrow – An Aesop’s Fable

An Eagle was soaring through the air. Suddenly it heard the whizz of an Arrow, and felt the dart pierce its breast. Slowly it fluttered down to earth. Its lifeblood pouring out. Looking at the Arrow with which it had been shot, the Eagle realized that the deadly shaft had been feathered with one of its own plumes.

Moral: We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.

Once you understand what sundance says, I think you cannot feel anything but pity for those criticizing or complaining about President Trump signing the so called budget (actually a continuing resolution which gives the authority to do what he thinks is best for the country).

    The communists are notorious for taking over foreign companies and the Chinese state their plans towards the foreign bankers in this article for all to see.

    April 1 2014 How did International Banks miss Citic Pacific’s US $36 billion takeover deal.
    Foreign Bankers jealous of Citic takeover have been left out of the deal.
    “[…]Beijing has been increasingly concerned about foreign banks’ roles in economic reforms, especially in the mainland’s financial industry development because it is considered strategically important for national security.

    Such concerns came to the fore after the banking industry reforms, which first started in 2003.

    For the past decade, many foreign banks such as Goldman Sachs and Citigroup had poured money into mainland banks – at very low cost initially – and then obtained sponsor roles to help the banks go public so they could charge big advisory fees.

    Now, home-grown financial institutions such as Citic Securities are more confident about handling complicated listing and merger and acquisition deals.

    On the other hand, the 2008 global financial crisis changed the world’s financial industry landscape. Mainland officials and bankers saw how Western banks failed and they do not consider them as their models anymore.

    The Citic Pacific takeover deal is widely considered a new chapter for Beijing to kick off its long-awaited state-owned enterprise reforms, signalling more similar asset purchases and injections could happen, with foreign banks excluded from the exercise.[…]”

    If you want RACISM on steroids, you only have to look at the Chinese. How any American or European could think they could transfer out wealth, knowledge and weapons to the Chinese AND keep the upper hand WITHOUT a strong American and EU economy and military to back them shows just how nuts our ‘Elite’ leaders really are.

        I realize no one will agree with this opinion, but maybe rather than a “crisis” maybe America needs to have a total re-assessment about what happens to actual human beings under the current crisis approach to destructive drug taking.

          Yeah, the “crisis” has always seemed strange to me. Some parts seem overblown, others truly critical. A LOT of people are dying. THAT is for sure. Heroin deaths used to be much less widespread – they did NOT reach as far across the population as they do now. I think it’s that spread into the “lowering” white middle class, and people who on the surface seem to be only casual drug takers, that is setting off the alarm bells. People who are completely UNLIKE classic opiate addicts are trying and dying.

            Also: are people who are addicted victims or monsters? I ask because addicts’ lives are thoroughly and conclusively destroyed by law enforcement. At least with “opioids” the “victim/criminal” has a chance of starting a new, sober (better) life. Not so after the “victim/criminal” gets into the system.

      The thing with the Chinese is that they are their own worst enemy. Feudalism still is prevelelent in Chinese society today! Living and working in Beijing for several years has taught me how to see the two faces and any deal involving gifts is motivated with wanting something in return.

      An excellent book that covers some of the period you are talking about including the “boxer revolution “ is one written by Seagraves titled “Dragon Lady”. It covers a very taumautuous period in Chinas history that illustrates the use of propaganda and how the struggle for power was being manipulated by Chinese aristocratic figures to undermine an empress who ruled at that time, as well as western (British) creating false history to discredit her. Very insightful in learning how the Chinese think. They were greedy then and are greedy today, it’s just their nature! They never tell the truth, therefore their word is never at face value when brokering a deal!

      Our President and his Killers saw confronting China 🇨🇳 as well as other countries as a four step process.

      1) Deregulation across every single sector of our government. They are now on the cusp on reforming Dodd-Frank for medium and small size banks allowing small businesses to borrow money 💰 more easily.

      2) Energy Revolution is allowing our country to process 10+ million barrels of fuel a day. That number will be increased to over 12+ million a day over the next couple of years. By 2023, we will lead the world in fuel ⛽️ production.

      From the article linked above:

      3) Tax Reform Bill has allowed companies and corporations to not only remain in our country but to return to our country because the Corporate Tax Rate is at 20% and there is a minimal tax on bringing money 💰 back into our country. Also keep in mind that equipment can be deducted in full the same year it was bought.

      4) Trade is the final piece of the puzzle! You could not have worked on it before the other three because the RINOs would have realized the President’s plan and would not have passed the Tax Reform Bill. By being so close to finalizing deals with South Korea 🇰🇷 and Japan 🇯🇵, our President and his Killers are tightening the screws on China 🇨🇳.

    “Peace or war. Win or lose. Yin and Yang. Culturally there is no middle position […]”

    And this is the problem, the fatal flaw in the cultural doctrine of duality.

    It’s exactly the same as what I’ve come to learn about the fallacious “As above, so below” credo of evil. IMO, it’s the ultimate lie.

    The key is an error of omission: the “equal-and-opposite” idea MUST include the “opposite” idea, not just the “equal” idea.

    War opposes peace. Peace doesn’t oppose. Below opposes above; the reverse (converse) doesn’t hold.

    It’s really deep thinking, so I agree with H&HC above, but again – the “equality” is equal, but the “opposition” ISN’T equal. It is the “other” which opposes the “one”. “One” doesn’t oppose. Negativity opposes; positivity poses.

    Ethics is directional. Evil OPPOSES good (good doesn’t “oppose” anything). War OPPOSES peace (same idea). When one espouses bi-directionality as the prime idea, and most conceptions of duality do, one leaves out an essential piece.

    It’s the difference between “the truth”, and “the whole truth”, in the witness oath of our judicial system.

    Food for thought – hope it helps!

        True, but no one said it was going to happen over night, just like all other plans and strategies to getting America producing again at near 6% GDP will take patience and a little pain to sacrifice for the bigger goal of reaching said objectives. I say 6%, because we are the worlds largest economy, and before the exodus of our wealth we were at 8 to 9% respectfully, and comparatively speaking China is around 6% currently, so my point is it is not all that unrealistic to have modest expectations to reach a 6% GDP, but it takes time to getting our manufacturing base operating on all cylinders and getting Americans to buy American again as well.

The whole notion of the ‘salad bowl’ replacing the melting pot is corrosive at its core. Immigrant Pluribum, who do not Unum … are like an infection to the body of America. They ARE a Trojan Horse delivering an attack from within.

    Note that China is no Plural society. It is monolithically ethnically “pure”. There is POWER in Unity.

    And even WORSE than America’s counterproductive immigrants within … are the multinational Globalist corporations within. They are decidedly non-Unum. They exist ONLY to pursue profit and an ever expanding marketplace. That they will willingly give up proprietary information in exchange for access to a 1.3 Billion person marketplace (4x greater than the US population) is testimony to their desperate SELF interest. That these same Globalist corporations will tout their “greenness” … while simultaneously exploiting the non-existent environmental precautions of America in the name of profit is testimony to their SELF interest.

    We are lectured by the globalists that the PROFITS made in China will strengthen the American economy. Vladimir Ilyich Lenin couldn’t have said it better. American Globalist corporations are not only SELLING OUT of the rope to hang us … they’re manufacturing it at a huge discount by our Enemies. Every American can now afford the rope they need to imitate Robin Williams … on special … at WalMart. And the Chinese people get stronger. The Globalist corporations are simultaneously destroying the American middle class by exporting jobs, while expanding the Chinese middle class which serves THEIR future profitability. They are cultivating a marketplace 4x larger than the USA. They are ploughing under the American marketplace.

    I believe that MY President sees and understands the duplicity and danger for America’s future. I agree that his own Art of War can match China’s move for move. But is America UNIFIED behind this President? MY President will be fighting FOR Americans … and against China … and against multinational, Globalist corporations. MY President is vastly outnumbered. I hope he has developed a strategy that divides and conquers the opposition.

    Thank you for this article, Sundance. I appreciate the closer look at China’s culture. It’s interesting that China spent so much effort not so long ago to erase any trace of “old China”- the traditions and religion from its culture- and yet, here it is- a very traditional religious worldview currently influencing China’s geopolitical policies. Funny how that works.

      Pentagon Loses Control of Bombs to China’s Metal Monopoly
      https://yaleglobal.yale.edu/content/pentagon-loses-control-bombs-china-metal-monopoly

      And just recently: China’s Monopoly on Rare Earth Elements Tightens With Purchase of US Mine

      “[…]China has dominated rare earth mining since the 1990s, extracting 85 to 95 percent of the world’s REEs from large clay deposits in the country’s south. When China cut back sharply on REE exports in 2010, it triggered a global price spike, exposing the superpower’s monopolistic grip on materials that are critical to dozens of high-tech industries.

      Now a Chinese-led coalition threatens to further tighten control of the rare earths trade with the purchase of the only operational REE mine in America. The Mountain Pass Mine in the California desert south of Las Vegas was a powerhouse producer of REEs from 1965 to 1985, at which point China took over global production and never looked back. Mountain Pass was shuttered from 2002 to 2012 because it couldn’t compete with the low prices coming out of China. After a brief revival from 2012 to 2015, Mountain Pass closed for good in 2016 and its owner, Molycorp, filed for bankruptcy.

      This past June, an investor group with alleged ties to the Chinese government bought the mine for $20.5 million, beating out American bidders including entrepreneur Tom Clarke of ERP Strategic Minerals.[…]”

    As someone who had to go through schooling in this type of mentality, I am surprised at Sundance’s insight in to Chinese culture.
    He points out the major factors that affect the current situation. I’m sure there are others that could add other minor details to this analysis, and others that may refute it; but, overall, I think he has covered the important stuff that actually matters.
    To the naysayers: Yes, today’s China is not the China of the three kingdoms and the art of war, but there is a basic cultural framework which has kept China together, and the ancient culture albeit slightly modified, is the overpowering factor in macro-behaviour (sorry about made up word).

    Yes, they are on the long march. Example: The past two years they purchased the vast majority of Cobalt production worldwide. Think battery production.

    The Democratic Republic of the Congo produces approximately 70% of world production. It it usually a secondary or tertiary element from copper or nickel mines. Chinese firms purchased controlling interests in the corporations and govt(s). controlling the mines.

    But, they did not stop at the Congo. They are on the march purchasing control worldwide, with, dollars obtained by pegging the remembi 40% lower than it should have been in “free trade.”

    Well, now with Cobalt controlled, prices are surging worldwide — just as happened with solar panels once they put a large percentage of non-Chinese manufacturers out of business.

    Ponder for a moment: The Trump Tariff on Chinese solar panels, may, capture some of the superior profits Chinese firms were beginning to charge after they captured the solar panel market.

    But, how does the US regain control trillions of dollars, which, have flown out of the US to China, and, have been used to purchase foreign assets?

    Coincident with the Red Dragon’s threat to reciprocate on tariffs, significant Chinese military exercises have also been launched to further embellish the Chi-Com tail feathers. It is an implicit display of irritation that would never be articulated, but is nevertheless meant to warn. The true concern of Xi however, is not the adjustment to balance trade, but the far greater danger of losing the free flow of stolen intellectual property from our country to his.

    While they were once a nation of inventors, the rise of communism in the 1940s crushed any spirit of entrepreneurialism under the weight of totalitarian control. Today China no longer produces or admires free thinkers within its ranks. The “Panda” is now substantially reliant upon the discoveries, inventions, and technologies of others to invigorate their tenuous but burgeoning economic engine.

    One need only to look at their latest military equipment to see its striking resemblance to our own, or count the number of Chinese “students” busily harvesting technical information within our universities to transport back to the fatherland. For American businesses operating in China, the use of “Partnership Enterprise” and “Joint Venture” laws virtually ensure that worthwhile corporate technology assets are readily shared with the host collective.

    It will be interesting indeed to see how long the Panda mask remains as PDJT begins to kink the firehose and slow the outflow of our intellectual property. I suspect we will hear the Red Dragon begin to roar bigly.

    President Trump understands that the Chinese always play the long game. Whereas we in the West think in terms of five year plans, the Chinese think in terms of fifty year plans and one hundred year plans.

    Another thing to remember about the Chinese political and military leadership is the following. They consider it an unfair accident of history that Europeans settled the North American continent a mere 100 or so years before the Chinese had the ability to do so. There are those high up in their military who have proposed redressing this. They have suggested that a coordinated EMP attack on the United States would effectively take down our power grid, which would cause the death of 90% of our population within one year. Subsequent to that, a Chinese invasion to deal with the remaining 10% of surviving Americans would be, in their words, simply a ‘mopping up’ operation.

    Then there would be, again in their words, ‘room for expansion’ for the Chinese people, into a landmass that by rights should have been theirs to begin with. The morality or immorality of such a contemplated mass extermination of Westerners is simply not a factor to them. Their only moral benchmark is whether it would be good for the Chinese people. Thank God we have a Lion as our president who understands the Chinese and who is matching their long game with our own long game.

      “[…]Natural EMP from a geomagnetic super-storm like the 1859 Carrington Event or the 1921 Railroad Storm, a nuclear EMP attack from terrorists or rogue states as practiced by North Korea during the nuclear crisis of 2013 are both existential threats that could kill 9 of 10 Americans through starvation, disease, and societal collapse.

      A natural EMP catastrophe or nuclear EMP attack could black out the National electric grid for months or years and collapse all the other critical infrastructures, communications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water, necessary to sustain modern society and the lives of 310 million Americans. Passage of the SHIELD Act to protect the National electric grid is urgently necessary. In 2010, after the House unanimously passed the GRID Act, if one Senator had not put a hold on the bill, today in 2014 the Nation would already be protected …..

      The single most important thing Congress could do to protect the American people from EMP and from all the other threats to critical infrastructures is pass the Critical Infrastructure Protect Act[…]

    Politically, modern China is founded on the Three Principles of the People (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Principles_of_the_People) as defined by Sun Yat-sen. The first principle is Minzu. Sun “…argued that “minzu”, which can be translated as ‘people’, ‘nationality’ or ‘race’, were defined by sharing common blood, livelihood, religion, language and customs.” (from Wikipedia)

    Minzu literally means “race.” In English translations this definition is typically fudged over as “people,” “nationality,” or “all the races of China.” Since China is 91% Han, what this means is the Han race. If you read other writings by Sun, you will see that he made “minzu/race” his first principle because he believed that the West was strong because of its racial consciousness. Whatever you may think about this, it is true that every child in China is taught the Three Principles of the People. And virtually all Chinese have very strong racial consciousness due to this. You cannot understand China without understanding this and appreciating it deeply. It is a profound and motivating factor in the Chinese “personality.”

    It has been years since I have done work with the Chiese government, firstly, due to the Beijing Great Wall Hotel. As that project was just finishing, Sheraton Hotels was selected to manage the one thousand room hotel.

    At the last minute, CITS, the Chinese International Travel Service (aka the Chinese government) ripped up Sheraton’s contract. Decided they would manage the hotel themselves.

    One year later, the CITS came back to Sheraton, begging Sheraron to bail them out. All Hell had broken loose.
