    China may restrict American access to medical supplies in retaliation for intensifying U.S. regulations on Huawei, according to a prominent economist and Chinese Communist Party adviser.“For vitamins and antibiotics, more than 90% of their raw materials are produced in China,” Tsinghua University finance professor Li Daokui said in response to new regulations targeting the flagship telecommunications company. “The U.S. will definitely not be able to produce them in the short term.”Li’s comments evoke the thinly veiled threats that state-run media issued earlier this year as international anger raged over China’s mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic in the initial days of...
  • Chinese Consulate in Houston Intervened in US Political Movement (ChiComs coordinated BLM Antfa via Tik Tok)

    ChinaScope ^ | 8/18/20
    Radio Free Asia (RFA) published an article explaining the reason that the U.S. closed China’s Consulate in Houston. The article stated that the U.S. has known that the staff members at the consulate were conducting suspicious activities, but, for a while, it did not take any action. The Second Department of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), which is the PLA’s intelligence unit, sent staff members from a large network company, with fake IDs, to China’s Consulate in Houston. Those technicians used a large video platform’s backend data to identify people who might participate in the Black Lives Matter (BLM) and...

    The annual conference is hosted by Great Wall Club (GWC), a group comprised of executives from Chinese companies such as Tencent and their Silicon Valley counterparts. This collaboration, however, poses a national security threat and runs the risk of intellectual property theft and espionage per the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Tencent, for example, has been characterized by the U.S. State Department as a “tool of the Chinese government” with “no meaningful ability to tell the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) ‘no’ if officials decide to ask for their assistance,”and is among the bevy of Chinese companies banned or on track...

    CGTN ^ | 08/05/2020 | Mario Cavolo
    U.S. attacks against China have shifted to a fresh round of arbitrary threats forbidding travel to the United States by employees of Huawei and by Communist Party of China members and their families. The reasoning behind it is astounding. This escalating China-U.S. drama scares and saddens many international expats. Imagine how all this must feel for someone like myself. I'm an Italian American, living here in China for 21 years, and a member of the American Chamber of Commerce which encourages the important ties our businesses and families share here on the ground. And we have to watch American leadership...
  • Smartphone chips running out under US sanctions, Huawei says

    08/08/2020 5:09:39 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 14 replies
    Chinese tech giant Huawei is running out of processor chips to make smartphones due to U.S. sanctions and will be forced to stop production of its own most advanced chips, a company executive says, in a sign of growing damage to Huawei’s business from American pressure. ***** Production of Kirin chips designed by Huawei’s own engineers will stop Sept. 15 because they are made by contractors that need U.S. manufacturing technology, said Richard Yu, president of the company’s consumer unit. He said Huawei lacks the ability to make its own chips. “This is a very big loss for us,” Yu...

    U.S. national security advisor Robert O’Brien recently sought to shut down debate about whether China tech giant Huawei installs “backdoors” in its gear. “We have evidence,” O’Brien announced on February 11, 2020, that wireless networks around the world have been compromised with access points that Beijing mandates. Well known are the concerns this raises for sensitive public and private sector data. Less understood is just how comprehensive Beijing’s strategy is—and how extensive its reach. WE SAY BACKDOORS, BEIJING SAYS RESERVED INTERFACES The CPC is using internal government directives to mandate that Peoples Republic of China (PRC) manufacturers of information and...

    Will Donald Trump score an important victory against China by locking out Huawei from western networks? The Economist tried mightily to avoid giving personal credit to Trump in its analysis of decisions by the UK and Canada to exclude the regime-linked firm from its 5G projects. Instead, they cast it instead as “America’s war on Huawei” while noting that the final battle will take place in Berlin.That didn’t fool Donald Trump, who retweeted it out to his followers: The Economist’s unsigned analysis of the Huawei fight is sound enough, but for some reason they barely mention Trump at all,...

    Cloudflare, a web infrastructure provider and content delivery network, is reportedly suffering outages resulting in major websites crashing across the internet. Multiple websites crashed worldwide today as one of the web’s most important infrastructure providers and content delivery networks, Cloudflare, suffered an outage.

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | July 15, 2020 | Adam Kredo
    The Trump administration on Wednesday imposed new visa restrictions on employees of Chinese state-controlled tech firms, including tech giant Huawei, which the United States accuses of serving as a spy tool for the communist regime. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the restrictions would impact employees of Chinese technology firms that "provide material support to regimes engaging in human rights abuses globally." The measure will prevent certain employees of the company from traveling to the United States. "Telecommunications companies around the world should consider themselves on notice: If they are doing business with Huawei, they are doing business with human...

    A Japanese information technology and electronics company and the country’s largest telecom operator announced plans to partner on research and development of secure 5G networks, challenging Chinese technology company Huawei, which has been designated a national security threat by the United States.NTT, a Japanese telecommunication group, will acquire a 4.8 percent stake in NEC, a Japan-based telecom equipment-maker, for 64.5 billion yen ($597 million), to spur the development of a “made-in-Japan” 5G network, according to Nikkei Asian Review.The Japanese government will provide financial support worth about 70 billion yen ($653 million) for domestic firms including NEC and Fujitsu to develop...

    Reuters ^ | 07/14/2020 | Paul Sandle, Guy Faulconbridge
    Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered Huawei equipment to be purged completely from Britain’s 5G network by 2027, risking the ire of China by signalling that the world’s biggest telecoms equipment maker is no longer welcome in the West. The seven-year lag will please British telecoms operators such as BT (BT.L), Vodafone (VOD.L) and Three (0215.HK), which had feared they would be forced to spend billions of pounds to rip out Huawei equipment much faster. From the end of the year, it will be illegal for operators to buy any 5G equipment from Huawei, Britain’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary...

    Experts from the Chinese laboratory at the centre of global suspicion over the coronavirus pandemic have ‘defected’ and are in the hands of Western intelligence, the architect of Donald Trump’s presidential victory claimed last night. Steve Bannon, who was Trump’s White House chief strategist and retains close links to the administration, told The Mail on Sunday that spies were building a case against Beijing on the basis that the global pandemic had been caused by a leak from the Institute of Virology in Wuhan and that the subsequent cover-up had amounted to ‘pre-meditated murder’. In an exclusive interview, Mr Bannon...

    Reports have circulated that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will call for Chinese-controlled Huawei to be locked out from Britain’s 5G by the end of this year, after the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) concluded that the products are not secure. The NCSC made the ruling that Huawei’s technology was not safe to use, in light of U.S. sanctions that block the Chinese tech firm from using American components. The prospect of Huawei using alternative components, certainly Chinese, “fundamentally changes” the situation, according to a Whitehall source speaking to The Times. Government ministers who sit on the National Security Council will...

    Epoch Times ^ | 07/01/2020 | James Gorrie
    Huawei, the embattled Chinese network equipment provider, has a new accusation to address. In the West, the company has been well known for its 5G network equipment and as the second largest handset maker in the world. It is also a leader in AI technology. However, Huawei has a much darker side to it as an instrument of policy for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). You may recall that the company leadership has been accused of violating U.S. sanctions against Iran, leading to the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada in December of 2018, where she remains in...

    Federal contractors have about six weeks to meet a provision in the 2019 Defense authorization bill that says they are not using any equipment from Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE in their supply chains... This means state and local governments, as well as schools and libraries, who receive money from the FCC’s $8.3 billion dollar Universal Service Fund may no longer purchase, obtain, maintain, improve, modify or otherwise support any equipment or services produced or provided by these suppliers.

    TONY Blair has urged Boris Johnson to ditch Huawei from Britain's 5G network to save our security relationship with the US. The former PM said No 10 should prioritise trans-Atlantic ties over saving money by using the Chinese telecoms giant. He said: "We need to make a call and it's got to be pro-US in the end. America feels very strongly about this and for good enough reasons. "It's very hard for us not to be with the US on anything that touches US security." Mr Blair said it was "extraordinary" that the West had allowed China to gain "superiority"...

    China, the same country that gave us the China coronavirus, costing over 100,000 American lives, is also behind much of the bad press related to President Trump and the USA. China’s CCP (Communist Party) created an entity labeled the “United Front” directed to ensure the media in the US is flattering towards China and policies beneficial to China. The United Front also supports Democrat policies that benefit China and pushes the promotion of these policies. We’ve reported numerous times how China’s economy is stalling, if not going backwards. There are numerous measurements that support this position, and yet you...

    More and more countries and telecom companies “are waking up to the danger of the Chinese Communist Party’s surveillance state” and allowing only trusted vendors in their 5G networks, excluding Huawei from deals with their telecommunications operators due to the Chinese company’s ties with the Chinese military, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement.Companies like Huawei are required by China’s security law “to share any information that they have and that includes the private information, whether that’s health care information or other personal information of a citizen from the Czech Republic or a citizen of Germany or...

    Toward the end of his new book, The Return of Great Power Rivalry, Matthew Kroenig offers sensible if tentative advice for responding to China’s ambitions for technological leadership: U.S. government investments in basic science and R&D have been critical in past technological breakthroughs, including nuclear power and the Internet. . . and the United States could do more to invest in the technologies of the future. Democracies are often slow to build consensus for a problem, and that helps them to avoid mistakes. But when a national consensus is achieved, they can mass resources toward a problem just as...
