China Is America’s Enemy, And The Enemy Of Free People Everywhere

13 08 2019

 By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Almost nine years ago, I wrote an article entitled “China Is America’s Enemy: Make No Mistake About That,” which was published here.[2]  The year before that, I had written another article entitled “The Silent Voices Of Stalin’s Soviet Holocaust And Mao’s Chinese Holocaust,” which addressed the killing by China’s Mao Tse-tung of an estimated 30-40 million between 1958 and 1960, as a result of what Mao’s regime hailed as the “Great Leap Forward.”[3]  Today, China is killing its babies, yet the world is turning a blind eye again.[4]

Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—has written a thoughtful and sobering article entitled “China, Not Russia, the Greater Threat,” which is worth reading and reflecting on:

Ten weeks of protests, some huge, a few violent, culminated Monday with a shutdown of the Hong Kong airport.

Ominously, Beijing described the violent weekend demonstrations as “deranged” acts that are “the first signs of terrorism,” and vowed a merciless crackdown on the perpetrators.

China is being pushed toward a decision it does not want to make: to use military force, as in Tiananmen Square 30 years ago, to crush the uprising. For that would reveal the character of President Xi Jinping’s Communist dictatorship, as well as Beijing’s long-term plans for this semi-autonomous city of almost 7.5 million.

Yet this is not the only internal or border concern of Xi’s regime.

Millions of Muslim Uighurs in China’s west are in concentration camps undergoing “re-education” to change their way of thinking on loyalty, secession and the creation of a new East Turkestan.

In June, a Chinese vessel rammed and sank a Philippine fishing boat, leaving its 22 crewmen to drown. The fishermen were rescued by a Vietnamese boat.

President Rodrigo Duterte’s reluctance to resist China’s fortification in the South China Sea of the rocks and reefs Manila claims are within its own territorial waters has turned Philippine nationalism anti-China.

China’s claim to Taiwan is being defied by Taipei, which just bought $2.2 billion in U.S. military equipment including Abrams tanks and Stinger missiles.

Any Taiwanese declaration of independence, China has warned, means war.

While Taiwan’s request to buy U.S. F-16s has not yet been approved, in a rare visit, Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen stopped over in the U.S. recently, before traveling on to Caribbean countries that retain diplomatic relations with Taipei. Beijing has expressed its outrage at the U.S. arms sales and Tsai’s unofficial visit.

The vaunted Chinese economy is growing, at best, at half the double-digit rate of a decade ago, not enough to create the jobs needed for hundreds of millions in the countryside seeking work.

And talks have been suspended in the U.S.-China trade dispute, at the heart of which, says White House aide Peter Navarro, are Beijing’s “seven deadly sins” in dealing with the United States:

China steals our intellectual property via cybertheft, forces U.S. companies in China to transfer technology, hacks our computers, dumps into our markets to put U.S. companies out of business, subsidizes state-owned enterprises to compete with U.S. firms, manipulates its currency, and, despite our protests, ships to the USA the fentanyl drug that has become a major killer of Americans.

Such practices have enabled China to run up annual trade surpluses of $300 billion to $400 billion at our expense, and, says Navarro, have caused the loss of 70,000 factories and 5 million manufacturing jobs in the U.S.

Moreover, China has used the accumulated wealth of its huge trade surpluses to finance its drive for hegemony in Asia and beyond.

With President Donald Trump threatening 10% tariffs on $300 billion more in Chinese exports to the U.S., Xi must decide if he is willing to end his trade-war tactics against the U.S., which have gone on during the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations. If he refuses, will he accept the de-coupling of our two economies?

Only Trump has taken on the Middle Kingdom.

If the American people and Congress are willing to play hardball and accept sacrifices, we can win this face-off. The U.S. buys five times as much from China as we sell to China. The big loser in this confrontation, if we stay the course, will not be the USA.

For three years, the U.S. establishment has not ceased to howl about Russia’s theft of emails of the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

Yet the greatest cybercrime of the century was Beijing’s theft in 2014 of the personnel files of 22 million applicants and employees of the U.S. government, many of them holding top-secret clearances.

Compromised by this theft, said then FBI Director James Comey, was a “treasure trove of information about everybody who has worked for, tried to work for, or works for the United States government.”

“A very big deal from a national security … and counterintelligence perspective,” said Comey. And Xi’s China, not Putin’s Russia, committed the crime. Yet America’s elites appear to have forgotten this far graver act of cyberaggresion.

Undeniably, Russia is a rival. But Putin’s economy is the size of Italy’s while China’s economy challenges our own. And China’s population is 10 times that of Russia, and four times that of the USA.

Manifestly, China is the greater menace.

Are Americans willing to make the necessary sacrifices to force China to abide by the rules of reciprocal trade?

Or will Trump be forced by political realities to accept the long-term and ruinous relationship we have followed since granting China permanent MFN status in 2001?

This issue is likely to decide the destiny of our relations and the future of Asia, if not the world.[5]

As I have written many times, Russia is a pygmy state economically—and “Putinism” dies with the demise of Russia’s brutal dictator-for-life Vladimir Putin.[6]  While China’s economy is not in good shape, it is wielding power in Hong Kong and elsewhere around the globe, which might be ominous.[7]  Protestors in Hong Kong have waved the American flag, and sung our national anthem.[8]  The thirst for freedom is everywhere; and China’s thirst for totalitarian global domination must end, or be ended.[9]

NO GOING BACK TO OUR GLORY DAYS

China will eclipse the West, including the United States, sometime after the year 2032 A.D., according to International Economist Martin A. Armstrong. His forecasts of long term trends are eerily accurate. Nobody else can come close. While the future is theoretically still in our hands, the masses are not able to break-out and get lasting change. No broad based consensus exists with the general public on anything anymore, resulting in continual political stalemate.

See https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/china/chine-the-financial-capital-of-the-world-after-2032/

One election or President won’t do it. Our political system is too influenced by the Liberal centers of power or the “megaphones”, as Conservative author Denish D’Suza calls them. By the way, only 25% of California voters identify themselves as Republicans today.

So, they must live as a minority would otherwise, and accept their views won’t be considered in setting public policy at such low levels. We have been altered and can’t go back. This is our collective reality. The system failed us. We all must just continue on as best we can. There is no going back.

Thank you, Craig, for your thoughts.

First, my undergraduate degree from UCLA is in Economics; and I studied the subject for at least four years, including economic history, before becoming counsel to the U.S. Senate Banking Committee—which oversees the Fed and the other bank regulatory agencies, as well as the Treasury Department.

The lessons learned were that economists are like weathermen (and women): sometimes they are accurate about describing the past, but future predictions with any degree of accuracy are almost impossible. Take your weather, for example, and see how accurate the weather services are at predicting it with total accuracy each and every day.

Second, economists generally have corporate sponsors who pay them—and often such sponsors have a number of economists on their payrolls. Thus, the net effect is that there is a herd instinct; and they act like lemmings marching in lockstep to the sea, or to the cliff or into the abyss. If they predict what their colleagues predict, and all are wrong, then no individual economist can be singled out for criticism or blame.

Third, in my career, I have only seen two economists whom I have respected; and both were Chairmen of the Fed, Arthur Burns and Paul Volcker. Possibly one of the very worst economists has been former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan, whom I have castigated in the past.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_F._Burns (“Arthur F. Burns”), https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Volcker (“Paul Volcker”), https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Greenspan (“Alan Greenspan”); see also http://www.naegele.com/documents/GreenspansFingerprints.pdf (“Greenspan’s Fingerprints All Over Enduring Mess”)

Fourth, with due respect to all economists, the only way I will believe any of them is to view their predictions in hindsight, and see how accurate they proved to be.

Fifth, California is somewhere “off the deep end,” and an aberration. As I have written previously:

Politically, California is a complete basket case. Its new governor Gavin Newsom is a looney; its U.S. Senator Kamala Harris was former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown’s ho; Congressperson Maxine Waters is an unrepentant racist; another Congressperson Adam Schiff, Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, is a looney too; homelessness, filth and diseases are rampant in its two largest cities, San Francisco and Los Angeles; and the eco-Nazis seem to govern the state. Businesses and Californians are leaving in droves; and the state’s only “salvations” are its wonderful climate and unsurpassed natural beauty.

Who is going to end it ? Which major power? Europe? No way. The American people don’t understand the issues which, admittedly are more complicated than good vs. Evil. We are not saints and if we keep moving left, may indeed find ourselves all alone in the world, with no allies or friends. As its stands, we are too politically divided to be a counter weight to China. Our leaders are easily bribed or payed-off. We are not going to save the world again. We are simply not strong enough morally. Until this fundamental values issue changes, you can forget a global Comeback. China is our nemesis for a reason. Go figure it out, if you can.

In Hong Kong, It’s US v. China Now

This is the title of an article by Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—who has written:

At first glance, it would appear that five months of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong had produced a stunning triumph.

By September, the proposal of city leader Carrie Lam that ignited the protests — to allow criminal suspects to be extradited to China for trial — had been withdrawn.

And though the protesters’ demands escalated along with their tactics, from marches to mass civil disobedience, Molotov cocktails, riots and attacks on police, Chinese troops remained confined to their barracks.

Beijing wanted no reenactment of Tiananmen Square, the midnight massacre in the heart of Beijing that drowned in blood the 1989 uprising for democratic rights.

In Hong Kong, the police have not used lethal force. In five months of clashes, only a few have perished. And when elections came last month, Beijing was stunned by the landslide victory of the protesters.

Finally, last month, Congress passed by huge margins in both houses a Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act that threatens sanctions on Hong Kong authorities should they crush the rebels.

When President Donald Trump signed the bills, the protesters now had the U.S. as an ally, and the Chinese reacted viscerally.

An enraged Foreign Ministry declared: “The US … openly backed violent criminals who rampantly smashed facilities, set fire, assaulted innocent civilians, trampled on the rule of law and jeopardized social order.

“This so-called bill will only make the Chinese people … further understand the sinister intentions and hegemonic nature of the United States. It will only make the Chinese people more united and make the American plot more doomed to failure.”

Thus do the Hong Kong protesters appear victorious, for now.

Sunday, black-clad masked protesters were back in the streets, waving American flags, erecting barricades, issuing new demands — for greater autonomy for Hong Kong, the release of jailed protesters and the punishment of police who used excessive force.

This confrontation is far from over.

Instead, it has escalated, and the U.S. government, having given up its posture of benevolent neutrality in favor of peaceful demonstrators for democracy, has become an open ally of often-violent people who are battling Chinese police inside a Chinese city.

On Monday, China retaliated, suspending visits to Hong Kong by U.S. military planes and Navy ships and declaring sanctions on the National Endowment for Democracy, Freedom House and half a dozen other U.S. agencies that promote democracy for interfering in the internal affairs of China.

And there is another issue here — the matter of face.

China has just celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Revolution where Mao proclaimed, “China has stood up!” after a century of foreign humiliations and occupations.

Can Xi Jinping, already the object of a Maoist cult of personality, accept U.S. intervention in the internal affairs of his country or a city that belongs to China? Not likely. Nor is China likely to accede to demands for greater sovereignty, self-determination or independence for Hong Kong.

This would only raise hopes of the city’s eventual escape from its ordained destiny: direct rule by Beijing when the 50-year China-U.K. treaty regarding the transfer of Hong Kong expires in 2047.

For Xi to capitulate to the demands of Hong Kong’s demonstrators could cause an outbreak of protests in other Chinese cities and bring on a crisis of the regime.

Xi Jinping is no Mikhail Gorbachev. He is not going to let his people go. He is not going to risk a revolution to overturn the Maoist Revolution he has served his entire life.

A ruler committing the atrocities Xi is committing today in the concentration camps in the Uighur regions of China is staying his hand in Hong Kong only so the world and the West cannot see the true face of the ideology in which this true believer believes.

In providing moral support for protesters in Hong Kong who desire the freedoms we enjoy, America is on the right side. But to align the U.S. with the protesters’ cause, and threaten sanctions if their demands are not met, is to lead these demonstrators to make demands that Hong Kong’s rulers cannot meet and China will not allow.

We should ask ourselves some questions before we declare our solidarity with the protesters engaging the Hong Kong police.

If the police crush them, or if China’s army moves in and crushes the demonstrators whose hopes were raised by America’s declared solidarity, then what are we prepared to do to save them and their cause?

Are we willing to impose sanctions on Beijing, such as we have on Venezuela, Iran and Vladimir Putin’s Russia?

Some of us yet recall how the Voice of America broadcast to the Hungarian rebels of 1956 that if they rose up and threw the Russians out, we would be at their side. The Hungarians rose up. We did nothing. And one of the great bloodbaths of the Cold War ensued.

Are we telling the protesters of Hong Kong, “We’ve got your back!” when we really don’t?

See https://buchanan.org/blog/in-hong-kong-its-us-vs-china-now-137822 (emphasis added)

Many of us will never forget what happened in Hungary. It is free now though, and a member of NATO.

DANGER ON TWO FRONTS

Both China and Russia are ruled by “strongmen” who have ensconced themselves in-power for life. Another words, both collectivist states are virtual dictatorships. China has never been a Democracy and does not intend to become one any time soon, if at all. They remain a communist state, albeit with a mix of controlled capitalism. Thus, the world is probably not becoming a safer place.

The global reach of the United States probably has maxed-out and the trend now is towards less trade relationships (China), more tariffs, and more mutual isolationism. This further destabilizes the world as each country now is encouraged to go its own way. We continue on our path of maximum debt which in the end may be fatal to our sustained global role as a “policeman”. Its hard to spread your butter over the entire loaf. Other nations eventually must pick-up the slack and will. Call it a new global land rush. Fill the hole.

One small nation close to the action is keenly aware of the mounting dangers in their “neck of the woods”: Sweden. Sweden, a small Nordic country, is unaligned with either NATO or the U.S. or England. They live just 300 K.m. away from Russia across the Baltic Sea. The see Russia from their back yard and can observe what is going-on over there. Its getting more dangerous for them. Their combined defense forces have been drawn-down in the past 40 years from a peak of 700,000 to only 50,000. National Military Conscription was reintroduced in 2018. Civilians have a role as the following brochure ( If Crisis or War Comes ) outlines.

Thank you, Craig, for your comments.

In many ways they mirror what you wrote in previous comments above my latest posting about China.

I do not believe in the inevitable decline of the United States. Yes, we have major issues facing us, not the least of which are the despicable Democrats’ efforts to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump, just as they tried and succeeded in the case of Richard Nixon, and tried again in the case of Ronald Reagan.

Yes too, China is a major threat, but it has serious economic problems at home. Russia is a pygmy state, and Putin governs with mirrors. Its economy is smaller than that of Italy. When Putin goes, Putinism will go with him; and Russia may fracture even more than it did when the Soviet Union imploded.

All is not as dire as you suggest.

COMPLACENCY IS A PROBLEM IN THE HOMELAND

I think you are just as complacent as so many other Californians on both sides of the fence. Complacent in how things decline progressively over very long term in increments. One thing is crystal clear to me: Its way more than simply a political issue or whose candidate the other side wants to defame, block, or even remove ( soft coupe ). There deeper and more authentic values than Republican or Democrat, “conservative” or “liberal”.

Lets look at the venerable Catholic Church in recent decades and see what lies at the heard of America’s rotten core today.

“The Vortex—Half of Priests and Bishops are Gay”
Estimates are between 15% and 58% of all ordained clergy have AIDs today and many (1,000) have or will die in silence. Since about 40% of Americans are said to be Catholic, this represents a HUGE problem- way beyond the peccadilloes of pols and the late Jeffrey Epstein ( strangled to death). Dead Men Tell No Tales: Old Pirate Saying.

No nation large or small can defeat a righteous nation. However, no defense system or army can forever protect a immoral or secular nation. America’s government is largely secular as is popular culture today. Its not just California, unfortunately. I would at least be concerned about it if I were you. Its no small matter at-hand, as the (spiritual) implications are very dark.

Thank you again, Craig.

The glass is either half empty, or it’s half full. It is simply a function of one’s perspective.

I often compare Donald Trump to Abraham Lincoln. Both were/are hated. Both changed the direction of our great nation. Both fought everyone. And in the final analysis, Lincoln triumphed, which I believe will be true of Trump too. They are historical figures.

With respect to the moral and religious decay, it is present, but this too is a function of cycles. After 9/11, we came together as a nation. One people: all Americans. Let’s hope and pray that it does not take another national tragedy for this to happen.

Lastly, regarding the Catholic church, it has major problems, but it is the largest Christian denomination, and Christianity is the world’s largest religion. So there is hope.

I agree there is always HOPE, indeed. There is always the possibility of repentance and healing. Jesus said to the prostitute at the well whom he prevented from being stoned to death: ” Sin No More”. The lesson is timeless. If we just sanction immorality through the formal legalization of such practices as Gay Marriage (Sodomy) and Abortion by our Supreme Court ( and therefore all of America) then we are clearly NOT in God’s Will, Biblically speaking. Quite the opposite. As we know: “The wages of sin is death”.

Nations do cycle, as you said. There exist many relics and ruins of past civilizations such as Greece, Rome, Spain, Portugal, and the Ottoman Turks. None exist today. The biggest cycle was that of the Nation of Israel with the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 77 and the 2,500 year diaspora of all Jews who lost their homeland.

However, as cycles go, Israel reestablished in 1948 ( UN Charter ) and just a year ago, the final piece fell into place: America’s forma recognition of Jerusalem as the official Capital of Israel. President Trump ordered the construction of a new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem and the embassy staff moved-in to their remodeled digs 5 months later this past May.

Our “cycle” may not be 2,500 years long, but it sure could be 400 years- in any event way beyond either of our individual lifespans or the next few generations, as well. If we go down, we won’t be coming back any time soon. I too doubt it will play out quite that way but it won’t be business as usual for many more years either. Like it or not, change is coming soon and lots of it from many angles. Better Hope its benevolent change or positive change. No guarantee of either outcome. Up for Grabs.

Thank you, Craig. Yes, nothing is forever except God, or so I believe.

Regarding Israel, I am not convinced that it will survive. It is a young and fragile democracy, with many enemies globally who would like to see it eradicated.

Indeed, if Franklin D. Roosevelt had lived, it is questionable whether it would have been “born” in 1948.

To say that the Democrats are the “fathers” of anti-Semitism in America—and yes, I began as a Democrat, but will never vote for one again—may constitute hyperbole. However, it must be remembered and never be forgotten that the father of today’s Democratic Party, FDR, turned away the MS St. Louis and refused to allow its Jewish passengers to disembark at American ports, sending them back to Europe to await their horrific fates. Perhaps this too is why FDR and others in his administration knew of Hitler’s death camps and trains, but did nothing about them.

The anti-Semitism of the Democratic Party has never left us, and is simply manifesting itself again today. It is present on college campuses, and throughout our society, albeit it is often masked at times.

See, e.g., https://naegeleblog.wordpress.com/2015/12/31/is-israel-doomed/ (“Is Israel Doomed?”) and https://naegeleblog.wordpress.com/2010/02/20/israels-senseless-killings-and-war-with-iran/#comment-544 (“Why I Write And Say What I Do”) and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS_St._Louis (“MS St. Louis“)

Anti-Semitism has been rising dramatically in Europe and globally; and Netanyahu has “created” a pariah state, tragically. But that is a debate for another time.

See, e.g., https://naegeleblog.wordpress.com/2014/01/06/ariel-sharon-is-missed/#comment-7039 (“Is Night Falling Again For European Jews?”)
