China’s Huawei, and 70 Affiliates, Placed on U.S. Trade Blacklist….

The overall strategery here is brilliant.  After two years of rope-a-dope…. Trump exits the corner for the championship rounds in the trade fight: First the body blow, China boxed-in with trade confrontation and consequences of retreat from agreement (Mnuchin and Lighthizer);… Then whammo, the roundhouse XO placing telecom under national security review (Navarro and Pillsbury); then upper-cut, Wilburine places Hauwei and affiliates on Commerce Dept. trade blacklist…  Lions and Killers and Strategists, oh my.

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. Commerce Department said on Wednesday it is adding Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and 70 affiliates to its so-called “Entity List” – a move that bans the telecom giant from buying parts and components from U.S. companies without U.S. government approval.

U.S. officials told Reuters the decision would also make it difficult if not impossible for Huawei, the largest telecommunications equipment producer in the world, to sell some products because of its reliance on U.S. suppliers.

Under the order that will take effect in the coming days, Huawei will need a U.S. government license to buy American technology. Huawei did not immediately comment.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a statement President Donald Trump backed the decision that will “prevent American technology from being used by foreign owned entities in ways that potentially undermine U.S. national security or foreign policy interests.”

The dramatic move comes as the Trump administration has aggressively lobbied other countries not to use Huawei equipment in next-generation 5G networks and comes just days after the Trump administration imposed new tariffs on Chinese goods amid an escalating trade war.  (read more)

There is simply no-way these step-by-step actions were not done without a massive amount of long-term planning and forethought.  Planning that had to be happening well before President Trump’s November 2017 ‘golden ticket‘ tour of Asia.  Well before….

(Reuters) […] Washington has also turned up the heat on other fronts, from targeting China’s tech firms such as Huawei and ZTE to sending warships through the strategic Taiwan Strait.

As the pressure mounts, Chinese leaders are pressing ahead to seal a deal and avoid a drawn-out trade war that risks stalling China’s long-term economic development, according to people familiar with their thinking.

But Beijing is mindful of a possible nationalistic backlash if it is seen as conceding too much to Washington.

Agreeing to U.S. demands to end subsidies and tax breaks for state-owned firms and strategic sectors would also overturn China’s state-led economic model and weaken the Communist Party’s grip on the economy, they said.

Trade analysts say China could reward other global companies at the expense of U.S. firms, replacing for example Boeing planes with Airbus jets where possible.

But there is considerable risk for China in transitioning its retaliation from tariffs to non-tariffs barriers on U.S. companies because doing so would intensify perceptions of an uneven playing field in China and incentivise some firms to shift sourcing or investment outside the country, they say.

Trump has called for U.S. firms to move production back to the United States.

“The medium- to long-term ramifications on supply chains are being deeply underestimated. I would be severely concerned if I was China,” Robert Lawrence, a nonresident senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, recently told journalists in Beijing, where a group from the think-tank met with senior Chinese officials.

      You know what China backtracking on the trade deal reminds me of? When Trudeau backstabbed Trump. Let’s take a walk down memory lane…

      “There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door,” Navarro said, echoing the words of Trump’s chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow.
      Kudlow faced a massive backlash on social media earlier on Sunday after he accused Trudeau of “stabbing the US in the back” with his promise to retaliate against US tariffs at the final presser.

                I buy product from Thailand, So Korea, Japan & China. China has to compete for my business against these other countries if China goes up 25% they will place themselves at the bottom of my list. But I’ve only been buying Chinese if I have to so tariffs mean nothing to my customers, likewise many other companies do the same, there will be very little difference in pricing to the US customer because all businesses have suppliers other than China and the customer prices reflect the aggregate wholesale pricing.
                So no subject was changed, was it??

                Any business that is solely dependent on China or any other single Company lacks the ability to negotiate a price so if China goes up 25% those businesses will buy less product from China shifting to other Companies in other countries including the US.
                Bottom line is I won’t be buying from China, my prices won’t change, none of my Customers will be paying the Chinese Tariffs, some companies and suppliers might bump their prices but other companies that are looking for new business will not & most companies are looking for new business. We might pay a little more for some things but no one will be paying 25% more for anything so no the American consumer will not be paying the Tariffs and the only way the Chinese hang on to their US market share is to lower their price 25%.
                Any company passing the 25% tariffs on to their customers will be sending their customers to me or some other company.

                1. The tariff is paid proportional to the elasticity of the supply and demand curves of the individual products.
                2. The Substitution Effect enters to a degree in the Short Run, but most assuredly in the Long Run.
                3. What does it cost the American People to have to support out-of-work Americans, and the “gifting for free” of technology developed in the United States, but absconded by China without payment. And shamelessly, to boot?
                China is the enemy. Everything “made in China” and imported into the United States, was once made in the U.S.A where American workers had jobs to pay for American Made products.

        What most Americans didn’t realize until now is the fact that the one world order has been slowly making its way into this republic beginning in 2008 and the engineered crisis.

        China plaid a role in that one world order as the trade agreements slowly bled us try via flooding the country with cheap and sub-quality chit and laced Fentanyl which by the way has been making its way into this country for many years.

        Hussein and gang sold the California Long Beach Port to China (Schiff’s district) and its there where most of the laced and deadly Fentanyl arrived. The latest raid 4 months ago was a 2.3 ton bust.

        Fortunate for us president Trump FORCED China to return that port as the contract was cancelled based on the existing national security threat.

        China is not a good partner in any way – their mask outwardly smiles while the real face shows disdain towards America ergo destroying America via the many ways was the goal.

        The EU also had the same idea ergo China and our own traitors within are the cause of the massive damage caused to the US.

        President has been a blessing and God willing his administration will continue to reverse the advanced one world order that made it into this republic on the sly.

      I’ve posted this on several treadlines and blogs, but I’ll post again here.

      Chinese students should not be allowed in US University STEM programs.
      A trail of IP theft that is seldom mentioned is at US university research labs where successful processes and technologies eventually became start-up companies.

      Most US university research result in dead-ends through no fault of the researchers, its research.

      Seldom do Chinese students major in fluff programs, no middle Euro art or 16th century architecture majors. Most are in STEM (sci-tech-eng-math) programs at major universities, these are the majors that get the students into the CCP or move them up the CCP hierarchy when they return to China. Most Chinese STEM students are vying for entrance into Masters Programs w the ultimate goal of university research centers and labs. I agree that Chinese students are intelligent, seldom miss class and generally out-study most students. But know this, most Chinese students are platinum level cheaters and didn’t earn their access into university research centers and labs on their own. But CCP donations and the universities’ love for diversity is paramount.

      This is where espionage driven IP theft weave with university research centers and labs that provide a roadmap to find what needs to be stolen. Start-up companies that spin off from the research centers and labs are the most viable to result in commercial or military usage and success. Also provides easier espionage hacks into the start-ups early which is when they are most susceptible. As a start-up prospers and collaborates w or purchased by major corporations, the roadmap Chinese researchers provides the agents of espionage with the intellectual property “DNA” they need to find and steal. IOW, major Corps have 100s of millions of files stashed on their networks, having the “DNA = keywords or formulas or recipes or directory titles” can significantly simplify the theft and reduce detection of their incursion.

          Chinese students are the platinum standard of campus cheaters. Seldom is there a STEM class w only one or two Chinese students, 4-6 is standard size for group cheaters. In STEM programs there could be 2 or 3 Chinese groups cheating. Don’t get me wrong, Chinese students attend classes, learn and study as well as any student, but they have ways to cheat that a thesis could be written on.

          Most universities turn a blind eye about Chinese cheaters, the Chinese students pay full tuition, funding and donations by the CCP (Chinese Comm Party) to upgrade or build new labs or tech is numerous and in $$$ millions.

It was also a way for the communists to keep the peasants from literally revolting–give them good-paying jobs (good paying for the boon docks in China), keep the peasant in the country, and Apple got cheap labor. If China now turns the screws to Apple and Apple moves production elsewhere, millions of peasants would then have no job, no means to put food on the table, etc. And hungry people, as history has shown us many times, are desperate people and will riot using the very stones in the syreet as weapons.

    The moves by President Trump against communist china are brilliant, timely yet overdue,
    and very necessary to fight back against the war that communist china is waging against
    the United States, and indeed the world.
    And of course, it almost forces the globalist companies that chose china over America
    to move back to America, or at least to get out of china.

      Over the decades, Globalists and their Central Bankers made it impossible for international, and even domestic companies, to survive unless they transfered crucial competencies, manufacturing capability, market share and intellectual property to China.

      Those companies had no choice. They will replace their globalist CEOs and return to a nationalist base as Trump paves the way.

      China is the globalists’ keystone in global governance. Trump is chipping it away.

    FM spot, Geng Shuang said, that the US was
    “abusing its power to maliciously smear and beat down on certain Chinese “
    “We urge the US to stop using the pretense of national security to carry out its unreasonable suppression of Chinese companies, and to provide a fair and just environment for Chinese companies investing and operating normally in the US that is free of prejudice companies”.

    payback is a b***h Geng Shuang

    It was so easy for China and other countries to take advantage of and steal from the toughest badass country out there when that country is run by globalist puppets and corrupt traitors

    Now, take an America First, pro American people patriot, who also just happens to be a brilliant businessman and the toughest badass on the world stage, and the old status quo is turned upside down in an extreme way

    It’s over guys. The days of Bush, Clinton and Obama are over

    Right now, China has two options

    One, be stupid and get your ass kicked before you’re forced to yell “Uncle” and submit to the level playing field Trump is calling for

    Two, use your smarts for something else besides deception and stealing, and help yourselves in order to get out of a unwinnable and dangerous situation by agreeing to do the right thing

    Chinese leaders are smart? Prove it, otherwise Trump is already off his corner stool, punching his gloves together and waiting for the next round

    Most Chinese agree that the US is more powerful than China and Washington holds initiative in the trade war. But we just don’t want to cave in and we believe there is no way the US can crush China. We are willing to bear some pain to give the US a lesson.

        Don’t under estimate the younger Chinese business people though. They are very smart , very ambitious and no matter what will succeed on the world stage. They do realize though that their country has been getting away with murder business wise and at some stage this would halted. I guess that time is now 🙂

  36. Something I noticed lately – President Trump has stopped calling Chairman Xi as “my good friend” in his tweets. Normally, when he would bash China, he would in the same breath also praise Chairman Xi. I don’t see that happening in his tweets in past few days.
    But knowing President Trump, if China changes their tune, he will be back with “my great friend Chairman Xi”. That is a trait of a true businessman / politician – there are no permanent friends or enemies.

    Overall, given the extant and growing disparity between ChiCom and U.S. GDPs plus projected long-term growth rates, Trump’s Pilliwinks Policy [qv] vs. Peking’s 30-year geopolitical/economic lamprey infestation catches Hsi & Co. at a critical moment in their (typically autarchic) One Belt/One Road thrust to harness global supply-chains via Second and Third World debt peonage.

    What’s fun about Trump is that he’s always far ahead not only of sovereign State competitors but conventional academic, private- and public-sector wisdom as well. With SD’s puissant aid, we rationalize these moves in retrospect, but Trump has been mulling every aspect from a billionaire mogul’s perspective for nigh-on thirty years.

    Providence smiles on the U.S. … but in mounting DJT like a William Tell to the rescue, it seems Kipling’s “Gods of the Copy Book Headings” have not (yet) lost faith in the Founders’ American Experiment, our ever-optimistic, generously inclusive, American Dream.

    ” Trump FORCED China to return that port as the contract was cancelled based on the existing national security threat. ”

    FYI – PDT forced the sell of company, but the same CHICOM company then turned around as part of sale and leased/management for 20 yrs from the AUSSIE company. So China is still in charge of that port for shipping/rail. Which still gives them smuggling control and staging missile shipping PODs for sneak attacks.
