Beijing Summons U.S. Tech Leaders to Summit With Threats of “Punishment” if They Follow Trump…

Interesting, albeit not surprising, report from the New York Times after they are debriefed by a group of U.S. tech industry executives about a compliance meeting in China.

The Beijing regime of Chairman Xi Jinping summoned leaders from the top of U.S. tech industry companies and informed them of consequences for complying with U.S. laws that relate to black-listed Chinese industry; ie. Hauwei.  It will be interesting to see how this dynamic plays out.

Beijing is counting on the far-left anti-American ideology within Silicon Valley to create a communist economic alliance on U.S. soil that will work against the interests of the American people.

SAN FRANCISCO — The Chinese government this past week summoned major tech companies including Microsoft and Dell from the United States and Samsung of South Korea, to warn that they could face dire consequences if they cooperate with the Trump administration’s ban on sales of key American technology to Chinese companies, according to people familiar with the meetings.

Held on Tuesday and Wednesday, the meetings came soon after Beijing’s announcement that it was assembling a list of “unreliable” companies and individuals.

[…] The meetings this week were led by China’s central economic planning agency, the National Development and Reform Commission, and attended by representatives from its Ministry of Commerce and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, who addressed their remarks to a broad range of companies that export goods to China, according to the two people familiar with the gatherings.

[…] More broadly, the warnings also seemed to be an attempt to forestall a fast breakup of the sophisticated supply chains that connect China’s economy to the rest of the world. Production of a vast array of electronic components and chemicals, along with the assembly of electronic products, makes the country a cornerstone of the operations of many of the world’s largest multinational companies.

[…] To those from the United States, they warned that the Trump administration’s move to cut off Chinese companies from American technology had disrupted the global supply chain, adding that companies that followed the policy could face permanent consequences. The Chinese authorities also hinted that firms should use lobbying to push back against the government’s moves.

[…] Chinese officials explicitly warned companies that any move to pull production from China that seemed to go beyond standard diversification for security purposes could lead to punishment, according to the two people.

[…] The Chinese officials told companies from outside the United States that as long as they kept up their current relationships and continued to supply Chinese companies normally, they would face no adverse consequences. (read full article)

Remarkably, this approach is exactly what CTH has predicted for over two years.  It was/is an easy prediction to see where this was heading because the severity Beijing’s economic dependence is their Achilles heal.  Anything that begins to impede the ability of China to continue their world economic conquest, immediately becomes a threat to the communist regime.

Once a threat is identified, they are defined as a zero-sum adversary who must be controlled or destroyed.  In this example the technology industry writ large is the threat.  If U.S. companies do not comply with the demands of China all of their foreign assets will be confiscated by the government and the organization is labeled as a threat to the state.

…”Chinese officials explicitly warned companies … any move to pull production from China that seemed to go beyond standard diversification for security purposes could lead to punishment”…

Not much for subtlety and nuance, eh?

A year ago Politico presented an interesting article about how Chinese spies are conducting extensive surveillance operations in/around the San Francisco bay area.  They were prescient with the warning: “As Silicon Valley continues to take over the world, the local spy war will only get hotter—and the consequences will resonate far beyond Northern California.”

Indeed the depth of the Chinese influence is becoming increasingly clear.  In Washington DC Congressman Justin Amash has been pushing heavily for President Trump’s impeachment.  In addition to being an elected representative, Mr. Amash operates a manufacturing company in China. [link]  These positions are directly related.

Keep an eye-out for those who raise the strongest objections toward the Trump administration confronting China; there’s almost a guarantee the scale of opposition will be in direct alignment to their financial interests in Beijing.

Yes, as with all things Trump, the president is likely to expose much more than just political opposition based on ideology.  President Trump’s America-First stance is putting the spotlight on all those politicians who bet against our nation, took the indulgences from a happy Panda, and swore a greater allegiance to their net worth.

We live in remarkable times…

              It must be something with their native languages that causes these stereotypical mispronunciations. For instance, I have a friend from the Netherlands and I’ve noticed that there are a lot of words in Dutch that have the same “F” and “V” sounds like we do in English and as a result she has no problems with any of those words. What she does have though is a slight accent, even after 20+ years here in America, much like I notice people from Germany do. Not surprising because she’s from an area of the Netherlands that’s (if memory serves) only an hour or so from the German border.

        @oldguy05, not to harp on the 4D Chess… but McConnel’s wife was recently in the news about potential ethics issues and Google, Facebook, and Amazon have gotten the attention of the Depart of Justice for various issues.

        I just find it interesting that if the Tech Leaders are in a lose/lose scenario while the USA will be in a WIN/WIN setting.

        1) If the Tech Leaders kowtow to China, they will face Anti-Trust and various other troubles in the US. And unlike China the Tech Leaders such as Zuckerberg and Bezos live in the USA so they can’t escape US Justice at least if they want to keep their wealth. And their respective companies’ stock values would be pummelled by just by the hint of the hammer being dropped. Don’t forget Google/Youtube’s recent demonetization of Conservatives – imagine a Senate hearing dragging the CEO of Google to testify.

        2) If they defy China, then their dark secrets will be revealed, they might be forced off their respected companies boards, but their companies will be untouched. This will also make alot of smaller Tech companies rethink their partnerships with the Chinese Government (all Chinese businesses are tied to the Communist Government) and abandon their deals with the literal Devil.

        Never in my life time have I seen such epic WINNING!

      Yep, IMO, the animus against the President and his America First trade framework is, arguably and ironically, most intense in America. It is fueled by both the deep state that wants America under this President to fail, and the tech and financial interests that value economic gain above patriotism/nationalism.

      Xi has a strong team of Americans by birth playing for him against the President. He must be thinking, or blatantly bluffing, that he can significantly penalize the American companies without it blowing-back very hard hard on his nation’s economy.

      I would not be the least disappointed if the big tech cabal took a financial beating from China, which then induced more serious, reciprocal damage to the Chinese economy. Both sets of bad actors would suffer.

Four Australians held a rear guard against wave after wave of Chinese attacks. Each wave consisted of around 200 men. But were held off by my uncle and three other aussie diggers whilst the Australians retreated. It was a suicide mission they weren’t expected to survive. Just hold the Chinese off long enough for the retreating troops. By morning light the area was littered with Chinese corpses. The fighting so fierce it came down to hand to hand combat. But they survived the night and held off the Chinese.

    A lesson from history.
    When the CCP took over China in 1949, in Shanghai, the most capitalistic city in China that had the most factories, businesses and what we now call FDI, the new regime decided to raise their taxes to astronomical heights to put them out of business. The firms could not pay, so they tried to sell their assets. Of course no one was buying, so they were effectively seized by the Party/State. For good measure, they also held hostage the heads of these firms, some eventually years later after living in house arrest.

        Does anyone here remember back in the 70s when so many in America were afraid of the Japanese who where going all out against our economy with their auto manufacturing and their investments?

        The Japanese where moneymaking dynamos if you believed our msm, nothing could stop them they were going to conquer the world and Americans were just a bunch of losers.

        The Japanese were buying up a lot of America and at very high prices.

        American buyers just could not out bid the Japanese who were a little money drunk on American real estate.

        I remember all of the angst ridden msm stories about how America was being bought up by foreign investors, real “woe is us the sky is falling” type of stuff.

        Anyway to make a long story shorter the Japanese pretty much went belly up on everything and tried to complain that Americans sold them property at inflated prices….. wah wah wah.

        Big bad Americans tricked them into buying all of that stuff.

        They cried and whined all the way through the foreclosure process.

        When the Chinese came roaring into our real estate economy and everyone praised them as to how smart and disciplined they were, I wondered how long it would be before they went down the same road.

    “America’s Undersea Battle With China for Control of the Global Internet Grid”

    “While the U.S. wages a high-profile campaign to exclude China’s Huawei Technologies Co. from next-generation mobile networks over fears of espionage, the company is embedding itself into undersea cable networks that ferry nearly all of the world’s internet data.

    About 380 active submarine cables—bundles of fiber-optic lines that travel oceans on the seabed—carry about 95% of intercontinental voice and data traffic, making them critical for the economies and national security of most countries.

    Current and former security officials in the U.S. and allied governments now worry that these cables are increasingly vulnerable to espionage or attack and say the involvement of Huawei potentially enhances China’s capabilities.”

    A follow up article

    “Huawei is selling out of its undersea cable business as U.S. pressure mounts. But the private Chinese buyer, Hengtong, is unlikely to allay U.S. concerns. It’s worked with China’s military and is involved in Made in China 2025 and Belt and Road ”

    And a timely warning posted above. Previously it was revealed that China was rerouting internet traffic in African states that foolishly joined up with the Belt &Road. Now Europe is not safe.

    “For more than two hours on Thursday, one of China’s largest internet providers forced a huge chunk of European mobile traffic to be rerouted through its own servers.

    China Telecom has been implicated in similar incidents before. For about 18 minutes in April 2010, roughly 15 percent of the world’s internet traffic suddenly traversed through Chinese servers. This included traffic flowing to and from U.S. government and military websites, including NASA. Commercial sites for companies such as Dell and Microsoft were similarly affected.”

    This is not going to play well in the scheme of things. What is so very curious about the Chinese, is walking away from a fair deal.
    Obviously, they can’t see the forest(fair deal)for the trees(business as usual).

      They’ve been accustomed to raping us with impunity. Been going on for years. I’d bet they’re just “Biden” their time to get back to business as usual.

    The day of reckoning is coming. Call the scum in Congress and let them know we expect them to be loyal to the United States and our constitution. It’s time to bust up the tech monopolies.

      @dDEb-I suppose it’s better than doing nothing…but calls to Congress accomplish nothing. Kinda like trying to drain the Pacific ocean with a teaspoon.

      Have you not figured that out by now?

    It is all very simple. No coulda, shoulda, woulda, just the reality. And that reality is that Huawei and subsidiaries are PLA front units.

    Anyone making excuses for the CCP’s China, is walking around as a human fog-bank or on the #GreatChinaPayroll. Full Stop.

      They moved to China for one reason only: Cheap Labor. They didn’t care about American workers. Now, they are paying the price.

    “they warned that the Trump administration’s move to cut off Chinese companies from American technology had disrupted the global supply chain, adding that companies that followed the policy could face permanent consequences. The Chinese authorities also hinted that firms should use lobbying to push back against the government’s moves.
    […] Chinese officials explicitly warned companies that any move to pull production from China that seemed to go beyond standard diversification for security purposes could lead to punishment,
    according to the two people.”

    There are a number of quotations attributed directly to Chinese leadership where China exclusively wears an angry dragon mask. A position that makes It hard to assume a panda face after such aggressive communist tyrannical stances.
    Those aggressive dragon stances seriously impair China’s ability to save face if their tyrannical aggression tactics fail.

    This gives me pause in believing those statements are accurate literal translations.
    Not that the portrayal of China’s intentions is incorrect, just that it is unlikely Chinese leaders used those exact words of irrevocable mandates and punishments. I’d lay odds that China’s leadership phrases are better nuanced to leave China alternate avenues.
    I am sure that China fully means what the words state. Just that China did not mean for their ultimatums to be so expressed publicly.

    What America must do is to clearly re-establish aid and comfort to unfriendly countries treasonous acts will be severely punished.
    Attorney General Barr needs to activate anti-treason investigations here in the USA; while the CIA must identify and engage those committing treason overseas.

    Technology assembly and manufacturing can be performed in many countries. Once the industry exodus from China begins, China’s financial health plummets as expatriation escalates.

    Sounds to me like it’s time for that CUSIP number data base to be corrupted and be unavailable for at least 30 days…. The open threats made at this meeting is enough basis to cut them off at the knees, once and for all… Let PDT pass them a little message at the G20 clam bake…. “You might as well use those bond/note certificates to plaster the great wall with….they’ll never be worth any more that birdshit wrapping…. AND…as for those “parts”…..forgetabout it…… No Mas Aqui’…

    So Xi also wants to meet with Trump where all their troubles can be straightened out. The hi-tech leader that arranges this is the traitor.

    So, which of the Soylicon Valley phfaggots goes first? Not to worry though. It’s probably nothing. DC has their top “men” working on this like Wray, so we can expect a full accounting soon.

    At a dinner in Washington in April, Trump recounted a conversation with Xi. “I call him ‘king,'” Trump recalled, “He said, ‘But I am not king, I am president.’ I said, ‘No, you are president for life, and therefore you are king.’ He said, ‘Huh … huh.’ He liked that. I get along with him great.”

    TRUTH.

    Meanwhile in Canada, Justin’s team is trying to negotiate the release of detained/arrested Canadians. China’s only response is no response other than Canada must first commit to using Huawei technology.
    It will be fun to see how that story ends.

    For those on a Federal retirement (civil service, Social security, military, etc) there may be a coming boon to this China-Mexico tariff stuff. It’s hitting during the FY’s 3rd quarter, the same quarter that’s used to determine the rise in the CPI that determines our raise come January.

    “Beijing is counting on the far-left anti-American ideology within Silicon Valley to create a communist economic alliance on U.S. soil that will work against the interests of the American people.”
    I live in Silicon Valley. Think they’ll take the deal with China. Anything for more power and control, and to hell with the United States. People in the area have never seen a radical socialist that they don’t worship. This attitude is reflected in the ownership of ALL the tech companies the area….

    No Qualcomm means no cellular modems for China. Major problem. They might be able to make a Chinese radio but not something that works around the world as well as Qualcomm.
