China

A New Era for the China-Russia-U.S. Triangle

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Russia certainly has no interest in seeing in its neighborhood a nuclear Iran or an unhinged nuclear North Korea — or having disputes with a Chinese colossus along its 2,600-mile shared border. American appeasement, trade concessions, and extraordinary Chinese wealth did not make China a better global citizen. Perhaps stronger U.S. pushback, supported by an array of Asian allies and a conniving Russia, might.

Google and China—Made for Each Other

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Donald Trump -- the supposed fascist -- is the one who is actually challenging China, using the threat of tariffs to get them to change their behavior about such things as intellectual property, which they have ignored for decades. You would think Silicon Valley would be thrilled about this. But no. They go their merry, greedy way, making deals with Chairman Xi, this time -- how nauseating -- for a censored search engine.

When a foreign adversary meddled in a presidential election

Byron York, Washington Examiner

In the 1990s, a hostile foreign power meddled in our presidential election. There is simply no comparison between the political conversation about the Clinton foreign influence scandal in the 1990s and today's conversation about the Trump-Russia affair. Of course, the circumstances and facts are different, but it seems reasonable to say that for whatever reason, Washington is far more upset about Russia's attempt to influence the election in 2016 than it was about China's attempt to do the same 20 years earlier.

Was the Pre-Trump World Normal or Abnormal?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Half the country and much of the world, at least publicly, believes that Trump is an unnecessary disrupter of existing and necessary norms. The other half of the United States had concluded that what was recently considered normal was in truth abjectly abnormal — and growing dangerous. Maintaining the status quo would ensure them a future that in the long term would prove unsustainable, and not consistent with what they had envisioned America to be.

Another attempt, another failure of suppression of faith

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

President Xi makes no attempt to hide or disguise his ultimate goal. If Chinese believers are unhappy, Chinese officials are not. Christ’s admonition to “render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s,” works pretty well in the West. Despots like Xi Jinping think bigger than that. Why give God anything when everything is there for the taking? But in the end suppressing religious faith doesn’t work. Suppression of Christians just makes more Christians. President Xi will see.

Left Working Furiously To Bury Feinstein Spy Story

The experience of our friend Ben Weingarten suggests that there is a concerted effort to stifle the story and marginalize anyone who digs into Senator Dianne Feinstein's decades long financial and political relationship with Red China and the Communist spy who served as her office manager.

Will Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein Investigate Herself?

With Senator Feinstein’s deep ties to Red China it is fair to ask what if this anonymous “spy” was a lot more effective than has been admitted? And what ties are there between Feinstein’s economic interests and those of the People’s Liberation Army, the real owner of many Chinese companies?  And why was the "spy" on Feinstein's staff treated with kid gloves and never prosecuted?

Understanding Trump’s Goals And Strategy On Trade

Trump’s plan to seek freer, fairer, and more reciprocal trade when the United States is in a strong, and growing stronger, economic position is in the best interest of America’s taxpayers, producers, consumers and national security. Trump is playing a long game that in the end will benefit all American interests.

The Establishment Hearts China

Steven J. Allen, American Greatness

China is a totalitarian police state that tortures and jails dissidents and seeks to intimidate anyone who gets in its way. It’s killed more of its own people than any other government, ever. But many members of the American establishment see China as a partner, a role model, and the wave of the future. They believe that, instead of fighting the Communists, we should work with them and emulate them. The arguments against democracy by many of our opinion leaders and industrialists sound as if they were crafted by Chinese Communists? Great fools think alike, I suppose.

Celebrating 200 Years of Communism

Two hundred years ago Karl Marx was born. He belongs in a small but important category: people who should never have existed. Unfortunately, we can’t retroactively erase him from history. But we shouldn’t treat his life like something to celebrate.

Conservative Senators Must Oppose Gina Haspel For CIA Director

In her testimony yesterday, Gina Haspel gave conservatives a rare insight into how operatives of the Deep State think and work – and it should scare everyone who saw it or has read about it. What’s more, Haspel gave conservatives concerned about Russia, China and the war Islam has declared on the West absolutely no reason to vote for her.

Where to Hold the Kim-Trump Summit?

The prospective summit is a dramatic, unpredictable step that just might fix a problem which appeared to be insoluble. The location of such a meeting should be equally unique. Both President Trump and Supreme Leader Kim have flair for the dramatic. Why shouldn’t their location choice for the summit reflect a little daring?

The Limits of American Patience

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

Donald Trump’s presidency is many things, but there is one common denominator with all that has transpired since November 2016. The once unimaginable can become normal. When the veneer of conventional wisdom and practice is torn off, Americans learn that was not much there underneath after all, whether that idea is that we can never question open borders or Chinese commercial cheating—or whether it is complacency in our penchant to keep borrowing without worries over tomorrow.

Only You Can Get The Red Chinese Out Of America’s Colleges And Universities

Confucius Institutes are Chinese government-sponsored influence operations located at more than 100 American colleges and universities. Now our friends at the National Association of Scholars have made the job of fighting Red Chinese influence operations at America’s colleges and universities even easier by assembling an online “toolkit” that you can access through CHQ.

The Art Of The Trump Trade Deal

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

The status quo on trade with China is untenable. Trump can't back down here. He's where Ronald Reagan was at the start of his presidency, when the air traffic controllers called his bluff and walked off the job. The Gipper took an action that rocked the world: He fired them. If this plays out the way we all hope, Trump may score the biggest victory for freer and fairer trade practices in American history. If China doesn't back down, things could get ugly.

Washington Post Writer: Killing Down Syndrome People OK

Pro-abortion advocates, such as Ruth Marcus, claim they are standing up for the rights of American women. The reality is what they are advocating is a new wave of eugenics through which those who can, through pre-natal genetic testing, be determined to have Down syndrome or who are otherwise deemed undesirable are hunted down and killed.

Hillary Clinton And Our Hypersonic Missile Gap With Russia

Russia's hypersonic missile program was born at Skolkovo a vast Russian industrial espionage program with its genesis at the nexus of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation, Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Bill Clinton, and Russian oligarch Vekselberg. It is driven by donors to the Clinton Foundation and was championed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Fatal Delusions of Western Man

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The greatest risk we are taking, based on utopianism, is the annual importation of well over a million legal and illegal immigrants, many from the failed states of the Third World, in the belief we can create a united, peaceful and harmonious land of 400 million, composed of every race, religion, ethnicity, tribe, creed, culture and language on earth. Where is the historic evidence for the success of this experiment, the failure of which could mean the end of America as one nation and one people?

Red Chinese Penetrating American Colleges And Universities

The Red Chinese are working hard to penetrate America's colleges and universities. Here's how you can fight back if one of your state’s colleges or universities hosts a Confucius institute or if you are an alumnus of such a college or university, or the university or college where your children are studying hosts a Confucius Institute.

Run Operation Iron Mask against North Korea’s Kim Jong-un

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is almost unique to the degree that power is exercised by one man. However, rather than taking "Little Rocket Man" out through violent regime change CHQ contributor Doug Bandow offers a not entirely tongue in cheek plan to substitute a new Kim Jong-un for the real one.
