The Women’s Tennis Association threatened to pull its business out of China after a Chinese tennis star was silenced and went missing following accusations she made against a Chinese Communist Party leader that he coerced her into sex. The story is a good reminder why we don’t want to be ‘more like China’ and why we don’t want China corrupting our elites.
Unfortunately, more muckety-mucks in Washington and other halls of power appear to be falling under China’s spell.
Climate envoy John Kerry, who says he’s just the climate guy and can’t be bothered about slave labor in China, owns a $1 million stake in a Chinese private equity fund that invested in a tech company blacklisted for human rights abuses. The fund is also a major shareholder in a solar panel company linked to forced labor. Kerry is actively working against Senator Marco Rubio’s proposed Uighur Forced Labor Act. And here I thought Kerry was just an insane ideologue. Looks like he has financial motivations, as well.
Chinese telecom giant Huawei, which is tied to the People’s Liberation Army, paid Tony Podesta $1 million to lobby the Biden administration. Tony’s brother John is very connected, having been Hillary Clinton’s campaign chief and in the Obama White House.
Big media companies continue to take money from Huawei to run what is called ‘sponsored content’ in their publications. The latest examples include the Wall Street Journal, Wired, Reuters, and Politico. Huawei is considered a national security risk, but these supposed honest brokers of the news have no problem spewing its propaganda as long as the price is right.
Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s husband’s law firm has several clients linked to the Chinese Communist Party and military. It employs former CCP officials to facilitate its sizeable China practice. It’s also on record praising China’s economic central planning.
The notorious Adam Schiff, the man who claimed to have solid evidence of Trump-Russia collusion when he didn’t, met in 2009 with a Chinese Communist Party official who used to head up China’s influence operations, it was recently revealed.
Joe Biden’s favors for China go further back than that. In 2000, while the lead Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Biden pushed for normalizing trade relations with China and, later, pushed for listing Chinese companies on U.S. stock exchanges. The financial dealings of Hunter Biden with China are well-known, as is evidence Joe Biden personally benefitted from those dealings. Last year, Hunter Biden promised to sell his investment in a Chinese government-linked firm and resign from its board. In October, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to say whether Hunter had done so, as promised.
When I last reported to you on this subject [9/24/21], I gave you several examples of Biden underlings who are also in bed with China. You might recall a video from some months ago showing a Chinese professor bragging about how U.S. elites have teamed up with China to take control of America. I recently attended a conference where a speaker said there really is a deep state and it does not have America’s best interests at heart. If not America’s interests, then whose? All these tales from the China swamp should give you your first clue.
