    China’s Premier Pledges Market Opening in Bid to Avert US Trade War

    U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer listed steps they want China to take in a letter to Liu He, a newly appointed vice premier who oversees China’s economy, the Journal said, quoting sources with knowledge of the matter.

    Appendix C is juicy.
    It reads like…”China did us wrong — here is what they did to us.”

    It’s a list of US Companies and Business Groups, who give their first hand accounts of what China has been doing to them.

    For example:
    “U.S. Steel asserts that the Chinese government has been conducting cyber-theft
    operations in the United States against American companies for years and that U.S. Steel was the
    subject of Chinese cyber-hacking attacks on the company’s network, and another attack
    involving phishing that resulted in the exfiltration and exploitation of its confidential business
    information.”

    These first hand accounts are great.
    It is brilliant of our Team, to include this in their report…it really adds weight to the report.

        Just as A2 suggested, start from the back. As Wheatie stated, US Steel was hacked big time.

        I also read some of the reports from The Chamber of Commerce, Some Congressman, etc.

        The COC report and some others are “blowing big time smoke” A lot of words but saying nothing. Globalist shills. But most, like US Steel are jaw dropping.

        Of course have not yet read the entire report yet, but this lays the China issues out big time. Especially the theft of intellectual property.

        Read it starting from the back.

        The cards are now on the table.

    I absolutely love the fact that our President and Ambassador Lighthizer decided to negotiate this deal in a way that our useless Congress has no say at all. They don’t get to vote on it. The RINOs would have voted it down on behalf of the CoC!

    One of the WHORES pointed out to Sarah in the press conference earlier today that we only sold 11K vehicles in South Korea 🇰🇷. Why are we celebrating increasing the amount from 25K to 50K. Ambassador Lighthizer explained it perfectly. On our side 25K wasn’t worth the hassle. More importantly, the South Koreans were stopping our parts from entering their country. Why would any citizen of their country buy an American car knowing you can’t get parts if you need them.

    That issue has been resolved based on this new agreement. South Koreans will be more likely to buy American vehicles knowing that the parts will be available at a reasonable price.

    Our President was so right to say we have had MORONS (my word not his) negotiating on our behalf!

    Like stupid Bush – C’mon man – they pretty much sold our grocery store. Can’t be helped – we live in a global market and the globalists just bet every farm and food eater’s life on that one. A new day in agriculture mafia on a global scale. And by the way Syngenta started in the U.S.A. Page 126:

    The acquisition of Swiss-based Syngenta by the China National Chemical Corp. (ChemChina) in May 2017 is the largest acquisition or merger ever completed by a Chinese enterprise, with a final price of $43 billion on May 18, 2017. Through this acquisition, ChemChina gained access to a long list of patented genetically modified (GM) seed, agriculture, and biotech products cited as targets in Five-year Plans. ChemChin also obtained Syngenta’s entire U.S. business, including over 4,000 employees, 33 research sites, and 31 production and supply sites

      GMO seed is a huge scandal that needs to be exposed.

      With all the new Food Allergies that are sweeping the country…there are a lot of people who are wondering if it is due to people eating GMO food.

      And what’s worse, is how the GMO crops are launching their pollen outside of the fields where they are grown…thus polluting the surrounding crops that not GMO.
      If we lose our original Heirloom Varieties of plants, we are screwed.

      We don’t yet know why our Bees are disappearing, either.
      It is hard not to wonder if this has something to do with GMO crops.

        We are getting a real good idea and don’t expect the chinese or any other big ag company to help. The advent of air & vacuum powered corn planters that contain an air exhaust that blows excess corn seed treatments across the field is the culprit. The neonics blow across the field and land on spring dandelions near the edge where it is picked up by bees:

        A new class of pesticides called neonicotinoids, or neonics for short, were initially developed in the 1970’s. . . Currently, virtually every corn seed that is planted in the Midwest is treated with one of these two compounds, along with a cocktail of fungicides. The lethal oral dose to give a 50% chance of death (the LD50) among an exposed group of adult honeybees is about 3 nanograms per bee. That’s 3 billionths of a gram, a tiny fraction of the weight of the bee (1/10 of a gram).

        As a farmer/ rancher, I can tell you the allergies Americans are developing have more to do with the adjuvants used in vaccines than it does with GMO crops. Herbicides and resistant crops have given American farmers the ability to produce more on less acres.

      RedBallExpress, both Syngenta and Monsanto are horrid killing products to use due to the GMO/GME problem.

RoundUp? How many use it and know this but continue to use it, and RAID. We use no chemicals in our home or garden because there are natural items to use for the home and garden.

    PTrump is VSG- the report educates you with the details on how China operates. It’s not free trade if China controls everything – especially the IP, manufacturing, and controlling ownership. Just skimming through and reading detailed parts, that caught my eye, I understand better why PTrump wants tariffs and better trade deals.

    Our congressman and senators ( eg mcconnell) must be bought off if they don’t take a stance to level the playing field. This report will make it hard, and expose, the bought off representatives who want to have Americans be cheated like this.

    IV Outbound Investment

    Wow. This section goes into detail about how China has strategically ‘investing’ in all areas of our country’s businesses:
    Aviation and Aerospace.
    Agriculture.
    Biochemical.
    Computer tech and chips.
    Engines.
    Robotics.
    …and on and on.

    You name it, China has been ‘investing’ in it.

    So if China can’t lure companies to relocate to their country…then they come here and use govt funds to Buy companies here.

    And isn’t it wonderful for them, that our country has been in an economic slump for so long…that there is like a ‘Going Out Of Business Sale’ going on across the country.
    Gee, it’s almost like this was some sort of master plan.

    This is stunning. I had no idea that it was this bad.

    On Page 150 of this section, you will see this:

    E. China’s Acts, Policies, and Practices Burden U.S. Commerce

    “To be actionable, the unreasonable act, policy, or practice of a foreign country must burden or
    restrict U.S. commerce. The acts, policies, and practices identified above burden U.S.
    commerce.”
    ____

    It goes on to outline in detail, how China has harmed us, by their aggressive govt policy of acquiring such a wide-ranging foothold in our country’s Commerce.

    It is very good. Kudos to our Wolverine Team!

            In reading through that Section, Sylvia…it looked to me like China’s aggressive ‘state acquisitions’, really escalated starting in 2009.

            It increased, majorly.

            Obysmal may have helped, by targeting companies for China to buy up, doing things to ‘encourage’ them to sell out to China.
            One way of doing this could’ve been to pressure lenders to call in the loans of the companies that were ‘targeted’.

            Another way of pressuring a company to sell…would be to have the DOJ target the company or it’s owners, with some bogus charges.

            O’s DOJ was shaking down companies to give money to their ‘slush fund’, right?
            So it’s not a stretch that they could’ve used bogus charges to pressure them to sell out to China.

              In response to your comment “Obysmal may have helped, by targeting companies for China to buy up . . .” I add the following possibility.

              In the below link Peter schweizer explains how the Obama administration targeted certain companies with excessive regulations, thereby causing their value to tank. At this point friends of Obama would then purchase these companies at an undervalued price. The bogus regulations were then removed, resulting in a nice profit made by friends of Barack.

              Could it be that some of these friends were the ChiComs, given Obama’s desire to “fundamentally change America?”

              Possible scenario: China identifies a company they wish to buy and notifies Obama. Obama targets company with bogus regulations and causes company’s value to tank. China picks it up, with some of the ill-gotten funds later finding their way into the Obama Foundation.

      When they aren’t stealing our IP outright or they can’t get their hands on all of a target IP they send their scientists, engineers and chemists into our country’s universities or on work visas where they go to work directly for US companies. There’s no telling how many thousands have infiltrated the US in the past 20 years or so.
