Sunday Talks: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Discusses China, Hong Kong and a Shift In U.S. Policy…

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss current events surrounding China and their aggression toward Hong Kong.

Within the discussion Secretary Pompeo outlines how the Trump administration is currently in the process of changing multiple levels of cabinet regulations (treasury, trade, state and commerce) and U.S. policy as it pertains to the new geopolitical threat presented by a new and more hostile Chinese Communist Party approach.

    Close the Confucius Institutes, lock the CCP out of US capital markets, real estate and banking, decouple manufacturing, deny academic access including “student” visas.

    The world will be free when there is no CCP.

      Well spoken Ish.
      Recognize now that we are at war. Not yet with bullets, but that too will come.
      America and the world must do everything it can from this moment forward to harness and destroy the CCP. The sense of urgency must be taken up many notches to reflect the realization that Xi and the CCP are an out of control train wreck that will happen whether we are ready for it or not. The CCP recognizes that the cat is out of the proverbial bag- their intention is to dominate the world militarily and economically, and
      they will use whatever means that presents itself to achieve those goals. They also know their chances of domination are as good as they are going to get, will never be better, and
      will decrease from this point forward since we are aware of their plans, and President Trump’s actions will be choking off the flows of money and technology available to them.
      It is a shame that there are still many countries in the world allowing the CCP to gain a foothold in their ares, many doing so for personal gain. We must try whatever we can to stop this as well since it is providing new locations for military bases from which the CCP could launch attacks. The breached treaty, and takeover of Hong Kong is just the first salvo in what is to come.
      Recognize now that we are at war, or the price paid will be much higher than it should be.

        The CCP declared a “People’s War” against us last year, blues.
        Just b/c we do not acknowledge it does not mean that war does not exist.
        Factually, we are, and have been, at war with the CCP for a year.

By extension, middle class Americans and those of differing points of view will have to be heard, or the universities won’t survive.

    Enacting the Insurrection Act of 1807, which is a United States federal law that governs the ability of the President of the United States to deploy military troops within the United States to put down lawlessness, insurrection, and rebellion, would be a great start.

    We should open to immigration from Hong Kong, for all non-communist party people.

    They hate communism, are generally very well educated, industrious, high IQ, entrepreneurial, and do not hate christians.

    Hong Kong immigration should ‘satisfy’ those big-tech US companies demanding ‘trained foreign workers.’ And they can bring some of their businesses with them.

    China intends to destroy Hong Kong to make Shanghai its financial and business center. We should invite all Hong Kong businesses to the US before they are destroyed. The British are opening to the Hong Kongers.

    They are smart enough that we would not even need to warn them not to settle in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Baltimore or other corrupt, deteriorating, high-tax cities which would take their hard work and hamper their success.

      Possibly something like the ‘special’ status extended to migrants from Cuba, for many years?

      My point being there IS precedent for treating immigration from different countries differently.

      PDJT certainly has the authority to ban any immigrant, or class of immigrants, from any country or region, for any reason or no reason.

      Presumably he has similar authorities in NOT banning….and with the 60 bills in Congress currently pending, sounds like there would be bi-partisan support for showing solidarity with HK’ers, so if legislation is required SHOULD be able to get it done?

        Agree 100%. Drain HK as much as possible of it’s intellectual, financial, trade, technological, and manufacturing human resources who want to operate in a free society. Vet them heavily, but find a way to safely and securely bring them in and prepare them for eventual citizenship.

        I believe the founding fathers wrote it like that to keep out Moslems, which masquerades as a “religion”.

        They did not envision the populace electing the degenerates we have been putting into office at all levels.

    Evaluating Global Exposure to China’s Defense-Industrial Base

    Excerpt:

    The burden is on states, companies, and universities engaging with Chinese firms and institutions to proactively prevent misappropriation of their technology. We identify 14 public indicators that regulators, investigators, and due diligence officers can use to evaluate the risk of exposure to China’s defense-industrial base through their relationships with Chinese partners.

Basically a Catholic/Buddhist community, no roads only feet or bikes. So where I am all is quotidian. Even the police do not venture here.

          Elsewhere it is tense. A battle of words for now, but the PRC has made it clear. We are coming with our SS arm, I’d say already here just legitimising the reality.

            If CCP aren’t stopped, what HK is experiencing now, the rest of the World will be experiencing, later.

            They are like the Star trek Borg; they ASSIMILATE, and have that ‘resistance is futile’ attitude.

            I like what Pompeo said there at the end; Yes, it is Xi, but it is also endemic, hard wired in to CCP. They will corrupt the World with their malevolence.

    The humorous part of this entire interview is the “Shift in US Policy (on China)” Granted even before the additional focus, the President has put allot of emphasis and effort into countering China, their Proxies and past negligence of at least the past 3 administrations.

    In my civilian profession, I dealt allot with many different US Government entities and big laugher at this point is that for the 8 years of the Obama Administration, the catch phrase repeated often for those 8 years was “Pivot to the East (Pacific)”.

    President Trump has attempted and even countered China and their proxies more in just 3 years that the previous 24 years of the past 3 Presidents. It will be interesting to see what happens with this “Shift”.

      But the question is:
      Do not the British still have a partial treaty that would dis-allow Chinese interference?

            So did I, initially. Confirms a point I made awhile back. We get into some long, detailed discussions on this forum.

            But, unless someones “name” makes it apperent, or they post something which makes it clear, readers can’t really tell a posters gender, orientation, race, age income, etc.

            All those distinctions which are supposed to be so important, all the ‘demographics’ pollsters use to divide us up into little categories, and all the ‘differences’ Democrats use to divide people into greivance groups, mean NOTHING.

            You can’t TELL! One would think you would be able to tell if someone posting was black or white, male or female, cause don’t blacks THINK differently than WHITES, and don’t they all think the same different way than whites?
            And ditto for males/females?
