"Collusion," anyone? Bill Gertz of the Free Beacon reports on the efforts, directed at the highest level of the Chinese government, to shape our politics:
China's Communist Party is intensifying covert influence operations in the United States that include funding Washington think tanks and coercing Chinese Americans, according to a congressional commission report.
If you expect conservative-leaning think-tanks like the Heritage Foundation, CATO, or the American Enterprise Institute to be taking money from the ChiComs, you are dreaming.
The report said the Johns Hopkins School of Advance[d] International Studies, a major foreign policy education and analysis institute, has received funding from Tung Chee-hwa, a vice chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, the party group that directs the United Front Work Department and includes a member of the Politburo Standing Committee, the collective dictatorship that rules China.
The money is laundered, of course:
The funding for Johns Hopkins came from Tung's non-profit group in Hong Kong, the China-U.S. Exchange Foundation, which is a registered Chinese agent.

It’s only collusion when Republican businessmen who become President are involved.
China - Dem Party collusion - bump for later.....
They forgot progressives love the Dalai Lama and want a free Tibet.
Re Colluding and collusion, please check my tagline!
there’s a movie offered on Netflix entitled, Know Your Enemy, the Japs.
It’s an old “propaganda” film, that talks about how Japan, a backward nation in 1900, enticed the developed nations to invest and to joint-train militarily. Japan then used the newly created infrastructure built out by foreign companies for new factories in Japan to build their own factories to manufacture bootleg products bearing the US stamp for sale across Asia, and used the military training to invade the Marshall and surrounding islands, moving on to China. Japan also encouraged many Japanese to emigrate to the US to work for US companies and enroll in universities, join fishing fleets and work at ports, and many more Japanese were sent on paid ‘vacation’ to collect intel information.
Watching the film it became textbook clear that the similarities to what China is doing now, and the two-faced tactics Japan used then, are almost identical.
In fact, Japan started down the path of belligerence towards the US in the 1920s after the US passed immigration laws curtailing a good percentage of immigration from Japan. The Japanese took it as an insult.
No doubt they did, when, at that time, Japan’s national religion was devoted to covering the 8 corners of the world under the Emperor’s rule. Which behavior we now see in China, minus the Emperor, via their expansion into Malaysia and the African continent, “turtles” and bootlegging of everything from dress patterns to satellite tec. Lest we forget China was due to invade the US in 2016.
it’s like the USofA is a big garage sale and we’ve labled and put information and prices on everything but yet foreignors show up early as you are still setting up and they want to get things for next to nothing and their small kids stick things in their pockets not caring if any one sees them. After the couple of carfulls that came about the same time leave you realize even more items are gone and were not properly paid for.
