Peter Navarro Discusses the Enforcement Mechanisms Behind U.S-China Trade Deal…

White House manufacturing policy advisor Peter Navarro has an interview today to discuss the enforcement mechanisms behind the U.S-China trade agreement.

One of the interesting points Navarro raises is how the intellectual property provisions align with the newly initiated Customs and Border Protection “operation megaflex” where thousands of packages from China are opened looking for counterfeit goods.

According to Navarro the operation has identified a counterfeit rate of ten percent; fake goods and contraband narcotics.  China prosecuting these identified companies becomes part of the compliance system to see if China is adhering to the agreement.

    China will fail miserable! The reason is that these counterfit goods are produced by companies owned by members of the Chinese communist party!

    “Well over 10%” counterfeit goods. Jaw-dropping amount of counterfeits, and that is only the ones inspected once a month.

    There have been some voices recently singing a diff tune. Sources say (lol) China’s economy is in so much trouble right now, economically, that the ChiCom hard-liners will allow adherence to this deal to pull themselves out of this economic morass, and maintain their standing in the world.
    Pres Trump’s truth-telling about Communist China has enabled other countries to join in with more truth.

    One nagging question remains – who receives the Nobel Prize in Economics – Pres Trump, Dr Navarro, or a combination of both, with perhaps Larry Kudlow, Stephen Moore, Art Laffer, or another name or two thrown in?

      Probably (D): “None of the Above”… The Nobel Prize is a globalist, liberal, political farce… Just ask 2009 Nobel Prize winner, Barry Obama (for — gag — “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people”)… PDJT, Dr. Navarro, Larry, Stephen and the great Art Laffer will have to be content with staggering, historical performance and the rise of a grateful nation. Oh, well.

    Couple of tips. TM holders with registered trademarks should also record their trademarks with CBP. Yes, both places. Also, you (whose product is being counterfeited) are entitled to certain information from CBP about who is ripping you off (when violative merchandise is seized). This means a civil lawsuit is possible against people who are robbing you. Also, for companies who rely on outside legal offices to handle trademark/copyright enforcement, be aware that a certain number of enforcement actions do not go forward because some attorneys representing IPR holders refuse to cooperate with CBP, or just hang up. If CBP is called your attorney about your trademark it is being done to protect your intellectual property rights. Choose a firm experienced with IPR.

    The expression on Trump’s face in the posted photo, captures it all, as well as the Chinese representative. Norman Rockwell couldn’t have posed it better.

    Never-Trumper Cavuto abruptly cut Navarro off when he was about to tell a positive story about Trump’s foresight. Figures.

    China’s entire economy is built on forced technology transfers and currency manipulation.
    China giving this up is the equivalent to surrendering unconditionally to America in World War III.
    I am suspicious about China actually giving these up while it still has a pulse.

    I have personal experience with ‘operation mega flex’ when I sent some Christmas packages to the US from Hong Kong.

    The US has new rules concerning customs reporting from Hong Kong, very stringent, must be done digitally with a detailed manifest and valuation and signed digitally. I was a bit surprised, and Postman Pat told me new rules and at the behest of the US, not Hong Kong. This was for a few gifts, so I can imagine what it must be for large shipments. Also I was told the packages when they arrived are held at the US post office, not delivered, and have to be picked up by the recipient.

  8. I could have sworn that one report I watched said that FIFTEEN % (not 10) of packages from China contained “Contraband”, almost HALF of which were counterfeit pharmaceuticals and/or Fentanyl.

    I’m thinking that the US should hold ALL Trade Partners accountable by levying tariffs against ALL products from originating nations that fail to reduce counterfeit/contraband shipments BELOW a given percentage, OR levy INCREMENTAL penalties based on the percentages WE discover.

    Why not cut the “flow” off at the spigot, instead of running around with buckets on OUR end?

      justice, i , too heard the 15% number, had to re-listen to this vid to make certain it was 10%.
      Whichever number is correct, it is still really bad.


    • jeans2nd says:

      Listen here at 5:04, justice. Or start at 5:00, and listen for just a few seconds.
      Navarro plainly says 15%.

      See? We’re not nutz after all. (listening is one of my few skills)
      (dunno about you, but i hate being incorrect lol)

    China is known for their cheating. Look at Olympic gymnastics and other events.


  10. Pegon Zellschmidt says:

    One thing is certain, China will cheat and soon. The question is, will Trump tack on the tariffs before the November election. Democrats and MSM will make hay while the market falls. Multi-national stocks have improved with the ‘agreement’ and will fall with even a finding of cheating. Whoa to China after November if they do.
