Since November, elite leaders of globalization have been coming out of the woodwork to talk about the Great Reset (GRS), which is of course unfolding on the axis of China and the United States. But several recent events that have seriously affected U.S.-China relations have strongly confirmed the famous assertion made by the U.S. Director of National Intelligence not long ago that China is six times more of a threat to the United States than Russia. One of these events was delivered to the door by a Chinese expert for bragging rights, and the other is said to be the result of years of FBI tracking and investigation, and why it was revealed at this time is a mystery.
America’s old Chinese friend surprises Americans
On January 7, Tucker (Tucker) introduced a video of Zhai Dongsheng’s speech, which recently became an Internet sensation, on Fox’s “Tonight Show with Tucker Carson. Zhai, who is now vice dean of the School of International Relations at Renmin University of China and deputy director and secretary general of the Center for Strategic Studies of the Chinese Communist Party, spoke on Oct. 28 on a live broadcast of the Shanghai-based Watch Video Studio about China’s ability to manipulate the U.S. political establishment. The speech, which was so popular in Chinese circles that some people added English and Chinese subtitles, included these lines: “The Trump administration is in a trade war with China, why can’t we handle Trump? In the past, between 1992 and 2016, all kinds of problems between China and the United States could be fixed, all the crises, whether it was the Galaxy incident, or the bombing of the embassy, or the crash of the plane, all the things, all of them were ‘bedside manner’, within two months, fixed”. “What’s the reason? We have people above us, we have our old friends in the powerful inner circle of the United States!” He also said that during the trade war between the United States and China, Wall Street also tried to help, but “there is no way to do it”. Now, with the change of government in the United States, “the elite, the establishment, they are very close to Wall Street,” he said, naming several figures.
This video has now been removed from websites inside China, but the Fox video, which now has nearly three million views, has gone viral in many U.S. media outlets.
Beauty spy infiltrates U.S. politics story continues to fester
On Dec. 8, the U.S. short news site Axios exclusively delved into an investigation: Suspected Chinese spy targeted California politicians, which tells the story of a suspected female Chinese intelligence agent named Fang Fang’s activities in the United States: between 2011 and What is more concerning is that Fang’s activities extended to local governments in the United States, such as her participation in regional meetings of U.S. mayors, allowing her to expand her political network nationwide. Over a period of about three years, she had sexual or romantic relationships with at least two mayors of Midwestern cities – a story that, because of its lusciousness and richness of plot, flowed far beyond Zhai Dongsheng’s speech. Since Axions is a leftist media outlet that also has a long-running China column and is friendly to Beijing, this story leaves the progressive side unable to question it. The Daily Mail, a British media outlet, is following up in the next two days with a new, more salacious and exciting story that has received far more attention than Zhai Dongsheng’s “old friend” story. The story is now making waves in Washington political circles, and according to congressional sources, Eric Swalwell has been removed from the House Intelligence Committee.
But China’s infiltration of the United States is not just a matter of a few “points,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a speech last February about China’s infiltration of U.S. states, cities and counties.
The U.S. Governor-Mayor Exchange Program has been going on for years
On Feb. 8 of this year, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attended the National Governors Association and gave a speech on the topic of “U.S. States and the China Competition. In his speech, he urged governors and regional chiefs to maintain a “cautious mindset” when dealing with China, saying that Beijing is taking advantage of America’s openness in an attempt to undermine the U.S. He also revealed that in 2019 a think tank in Beijing analyzed in detail the attitudes of 50 U.S. governors toward China in a report, and named each one and labeled: friendly, tough, or ambiguous.
Immediately after Pompeo’s speech, China’s Foreign Ministry reacted strongly, saying that the Secretary’s speech was “full of cold war thinking and political bias” and emphasizing that “since China and the U.S. reopened the door of communication, both sides have clearly recognized the differences in their political systems”, but did not deny the existence of such friendly exchanges between China and the United States.
When did this friendly exchange begin? My impression is that it is about ten years old. From China News, I found an article “U.S. minister “blows the whistle” on U.S.-China governors’ meeting: it will be an important historical moment” (Feb. 23, 2011). It mentions that on the eve of then Hunan Provincial Party Secretary Zhou Qiang’s departure for Washington, D.C. to attend the U.S.-China Governors’ Conference, newly appointed U.S. Minister to China Robert Wang spoke with several Chinese media in Beijing on the 22nd, arguing that interactions between U.S. and Chinese provincial and state officials could breathe new life into the relationship and gradually strengthen and expand the interests of both sides. Although local governments in China and the United States have previously interacted frequently, these interactions and mutual visits were separate and irregular, and did not form a platform or mechanism. The establishment of the U.S.-China Provincial and State Forum is precisely to solve this problem. The China Friendship Association with Foreign Countries and the National Governors Association hope that this platform can realize annual institutionalized exchanges between local-level governments in China and the U.S., and “reap what you sow and reap what you sow”. According to media reports, such exchanges between U.S. and Chinese governors exist until 2019 and are an important part of dozens of program exchanges between the U.S. and China. on May 24, 2019, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in China (hereinafter referred to as the Chamber), the National Governors Association (hereinafter referred to as the Governors Association), and the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (hereinafter referred to as the CAFCC) co-hosted the 5th Annual Conference in Lexington, Kentucky. The Fifth U.S.-China Governors Forum was held in Lexington, Kentucky. The forum brought together about 400 people, including governors or vice governors from Gansu, Jiangxi, Shaanxi, and Chongqing provinces, governors or vice governors from Kentucky, Tennessee, Washington, Colorado, and Michigan, and business leaders from both countries. The attendees had an active dialogue on education and culture, advanced manufacturing, infrastructure development and investment, as well as e-commerce and cross-border trade, leading to the signing of five bilateral agreements between the U.S. and China.
China’s position in the international community continues to deteriorate
China’s serious penetration of the international community has led to serious discontent among countries due to the corrosive nature of its penetration methods, the harmfulness of the consequences to other countries, and China’s war-wolf diplomacy, which is mostly ventriloquized and a few countries such as the United States are explicitly declared and sanctioned. Weaker Western countries such as Australia have been subjected to various unrelenting and almost shameless retaliation by China simply for defending their interests and preventing excessive infiltration from jeopardizing their security by being a little tougher on China. Australia is a resource exporter and has been economically dependent on China for years as a result of Sino-Australian economic dealings, which has become a pain in China’s eyes and is now being cracked down on with everything from coal bans to wine tariff hikes.
But these moves have strengthened the international community’s guard against China, with several countries standing in solidarity with Australia. NATO and the European Union recently coincided in issuing reports that both see China as a challenge to democratic societies and intend to “strengthen cooperation with the United States on the basis of shared values. More interestingly, the Nordic country’s central bank, Norway, officially announced on December 4 that Jon Nicolaisen, the deputy governor of the Norwegian central bank who was married to a Chinese woman, had resigned from his post with immediate effect after failing to renew his security clearance. As the number two person at the Norwegian central bank, Nicolaisen was primarily responsible for state oversight of Norway’s sovereign wealth fund, the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund with assets of more than one trillion euros. The Norwegian Citizen Security Inspection Board failed to renew Nicolaisen’s security clearance on the grounds that his wife lives in China and is provided with living expenses by Nicolaisen.
The Great Reset, where globalization forces are centered on China and the United States, is all obscure because of China’s own relations and because of the treacherous domestic politics of the United States.
