U.S. Forces China to Close Consulate in Houston

The Trump administration has continued its strong approach against the Chinese Communist Party, this time forcing them to close the Consulate in Houston over IP theft.

According to The Daily Wire:

The U.S. State Department said in a statement, “We have directed the closure of PRC Consulate General Houston, in order to protect American intellectual property and American’s private information.”

State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in the statement: “The United States will not tolerate the PRC’s (People Republic of China) violations of our sovereignty and intimidation of our people, just as we have not tolerated the PRC’s unfair trade practices, theft of American jobs, and other egregious behavior. President Trump insists on fairness and reciprocity in US-China relations.”

China called the move by the United States an “unprecedented escalation” and threatened to “make a legitimate and necessary response” if the U.S. did not “immediately retract this wrong decision.”

The DOJ and FBI announced an 11-count indictment on Tuesday against two Chinese nationals and residents — Li Xiaoyu, 34, and Dong Jiazhi, 33 — for allegedly “hacking into the computer systems of hundreds of victim companies, governments, non-governmental organizations, and individual dissidents, clergy, and democratic and human rights activists in the United States and abroad, including Hong Kong and China.”

Chinese officials were seen burning classified documents after the decision was made following the U.S. revealed that 11 Chinese nationals were caught attempting to steal research from multiple nations on a possible COVID-19 vaccination.

Except for making it easier for the Communist Chines Party to Spy on our Commercial and Medical research I do not see the need to have so many Communist Chinese Party Embassies in this country. They should be made to close all but the one in Washington DC. Any information they are able to get from the Democrat House would set them back twenty years. Once these closures are completed ALL CCP Professors and Students should be returned to China, these people are working in and attending classes in Colleges and Universities that are conducting research for the Federal Government and other Privet Industry; this information is going directly to the CCP and these Colleges and Universities are allowing it to happen. All of the Confucius institutes in all Colleges, Universities, High Schools, and Elementary Schools should be closed and all of their personal should be returned to China. I would not be surprised if it were found that the CCP is funding these Riots along with the Democrats/leftists/Liberals/Socialists.

We need to shun them and stop building them up — COMPLETELY. ALSO we and the entire world need to penalize them for creating and passing this Bio Warfare to us ALL, to recoup the costs from their virus and the attack on all of our economies so the CCP can take the world over. NEVER.
