China’s New Propaganda Tools Exposed

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has revealed that China is using state and local governments to push Chinese propaganda.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The Chinese Communist Party is engaged in an effort to infiltrate and conduct espionage on state and local U.S. governments, the latest front in a growing proxy war between America and the Communist regime, according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

During a Wednesday speech in Madison, Wis., Pompeo pulled the curtain back on the Communist Party’s efforts to peddle influence and cultivate allies in America’s state and local governments. While the Trump administration has worked to ice China out of the federal government, local institutions have been more receptive to CCP influence operations, Pompeo said.

“CCP campaigns targeting state-level officials, and local interests, have been in full swing for years, and they’re increasing in intensity,” Pompeo said. “The Party and its proxies aim to make Americans receptive to Beijing’s form of authoritarianism.”

Chinese officials are using their American consulates to mount pressure campaigns on local governments, encouraging them to pass laws and resolutions that Beijing sees as beneficial to its image. These can take the form of measures praising China’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, which have been pushed in several state legislative bodies, or other initiatives meant to diminish U.S. ties to disputed Taiwan. These efforts are punctuated by “CCP influence and espionage campaigns at the municipal and city level,” according to Pompeo.

As the 2020 presidential election approaches, these attempts will likely increase.

What China is doing is totally out of line for a country who thinks so highly of itself! Were the choice up to me, I wouldn’t have anything further to do with China at all despite all they might have to offer!!

All they have to offer is slave labor, poor quality products that break way to quickly, their own spy tech in anything electronic, etc. They offer nothing good. I am referring to the government, and the way they do things, not the people.

As dangerous as it might be, it’s time for the US to firmly stand up to Chinese spying, intimidation, and aggression, be it here in our colleges, State houses, Congress, or in the South China Sea.

Trump, and other Republican leaders have already started this process, but it will take a long time, and there will be sacrifices & tough times in the process.

State & local leaders, big tech, some federal level democrats, former democrat politician & his racist wife, along with social media giants are all working with China to steal the election, and to turn the U.S. in to another socialist/marxist dump. Every step taken, from their first attacks on our speech, up through the recent destruction of monuments, re-writing history, and riots are the exact same process as China’s Cultural Revolution, including the age of their chosen terrorists. It is a destabilization operation, and our own politicians are helping the enemy.

Let us not forget Covid 19. It is nothing more than a Terrorist Attack brought to this country and the rest of the world from China!! Their own doctors have come forth with the knowledge that it was developed and weaponized in the Wuhan Lab.
China needs to be dealt with and all those in this country who back them. Including but not limited to politicians, actors and the crazy wealth like Soros,
Gates, Zuckerburg and yes Oprah!
THIS IS AMERICA…..LETS KEEP IT THAT WAY!!
