On the latest sound on podcast, I talked with Republican congressman dusty Johnson about new calls for a national TikTok ban. He helped to write the ban on TikTok for government devices. This is not some idle threat. I'm not howling at the moon here. TikTok has been fined a $100 million by our government for privacy concerns. We have employee whistleblowers from within the company that have told us that China, the Chinese Communist Party, sees everything. All of the data people are using and uploading on that app. This thing is a real problem. I can't get my kid off TikTok. Is there a file on my kid in Beijing? There is absolutely a file on your kid that TikTok and almost certainly ByteDance and almost certainly the Chinese government have. I know people think TikTok is just about fun dance videos. But the reality is that this thing has been designed as a Trojan horse to be able to scrape up wild amounts of American information. The threat from the Chinese Communist Party is multi dimensional and it's not going away. The director of the FBI, Chris ray mentioned that one of the one of the FCC commissioners is actually behind this as well. If there's a concerted effort in the house, support in both chambers, actually the Senate now as well. You've got the FCC on board. Will there be a national ban? Would you support that? I want to get a little more information before I support a national ban. I'm a freedom guy. I've taken TikTok off my phone. I don't think anyone should have it on their own phone. But before I start telling people that they don't have that control over their own
Dissecting the Relationship Between China and Taiwan
"The last thing I discovered about China that I want to bring up. We had Taiwan contact guidelines. You got rid of them, but it took forever. It's sort of like the kaj root. I think I'm saying that right about the law outside of the law to make sure we don't get the Taiwan. Do you think when you left the Department of State, we had corrected the over protection of Chinese feelings at the expense of Taiwan? We'd made real progress. Now this is one of the things I'm very proud of. We for decades had been so afraid of the Chinese Communist Party and their response, right? You send a diplomat to the island and they demarc year, they scream and we'd allowed that to put us in the corner and cower. We had a set of rules that basically said, no, no American can meet with senior Taiwanese officials. It was possible, but it was essentially a ban. It took me till the very end. I can't remember 18th, 19th, 20th of January somewhere late in the term to actually get it fixed because I let the department run its process. Every time I set a memo downstairs and come back different and finally I just said, I won't tell you exact words I used. But in the end, we got it done. And we put the relationship in a place that respects the independence and autonomy of Taiwan in a way that is wholly appropriate for the United States of America in 2023.

Who Is Watching the Eyes of the CCP?
"You received an invitation or you asked for an invitation to speak to the Republican governors associated to the national governors association. NGA. And they said, huh? And you showed up and you told them that each of them had been classified by the Chinese government, that got their attention. When you tell the audience a little bit about that story, which they've got to read in full to appreciate, but the CCP has a file on every governor and they are classified. So I had seen hints of this when I was a CA director, but I became Secretary of State. I was able to see it more clearly. And I was able to get this document declassified. It was written nominally by a Chinese think tank. But what they've done at the direction of the Chinese Communist Party was to continue to evaluate all 50 governors of the United States of America. And they would rank them. Friend foe or were working on them. And by the time I got it to classify, I'd also noted that there was a meeting in Washington, D.C., where all the governors would be. And so I called governor Hogan and then governor of New York, Cuomo, and asked for 20 minutes. They gave me 20 minutes on a Saturday afternoon. It was pretty sleepy day. But when I began to lay out for them the fact that the Chinese Communist Party was watching them, observing them, running influence operations against them and had measured them, had raided them, essentially said, do we have them in our pocket yet or not, boy, I had their attention. They all, they all turned immediately to their devices or to their chiefs of staff and says, hey, I got to have a copy of that. I got to know where I am. And I wanted them to just be a little taken back, but mostly I wanted to remind them that this isn't just an attack on our federal government. It is at every level of our government today that the Chinese Communist Party is conducting its assault against our freedoms.

"About banning TikTok and its Chinese parent ByteDance. Let's get to the Bloomberg newsroom and Denise Pellegrini Denise. Gillette start with ByteDance StuG because the push to ban TikTok is gaining steam in Congress and elsewhere in Washington, South Dakota Republican dusty Johnson among those very concerned. We have employees whistleblowers from within the company that have told us that China, the Chinese Communist Party, sees everything. All of the data people are using and uploading on that app. This thing is a real problem. And Johnson there on sound done with Joe Matthew. The Biden administration meantime extending a program that protects Hong Kong's citizens in the U.S. from being deported this program was set to expire in two weeks. Hong Kong residents who would have been deported for overstaying visas, well they'll now be allowed to stay another two years. President Biden accusing Republicans of exploiting the debt ceiling and Biden also pushing back on those GOP plans for imposing a 30% nationwide sales tax. I will not let it happen. Not on my watch. I will veto everything they sent me. Yeah, Biden speaking in his first major economic speech of 2023 there with union workers in Virginia. The fight over those classified documents starting up at the homes of presidents, former presidents and others is intensifying. Senator bob Menendez Democrat from New Jersey slamming Republican plans by senator and member of the intelligence committee, Tom cotton, who wants to block all Biden administration nominees until the DoJ shows what classified documents it found in possession of people like President Biden and former president Trump Menendez calls cotton's threat dangerous. He will undermine the national security of the United States. And Republicans meantime including senator John Corden, though, say they are not backing down. I am for using whatever tools that Congress has to get the Biden administration to wake up to the fact that this is unacceptable. This is not negotiable. It's unacceptable. Meantime, Democrats, senators like dick Durbin of Illinois say Republicans like cotton trying to do this kind of thing well, he says it's not exactly a surprise. This is nothing new for senator cotton. Two years ago, he blocked all of the U.S. attorneys for several weeks of 9 months. I can't even remember the reason. And in federal investigation say they have busted a major ransomware ring said to have ties to Russia after months of digital surveillance, officials say the hive as it's called, swindled its victims out of roughly a $100 million by hacking into sensitive information and data and ordering a ransom payment to retrieve it. Federal officials say they were able to alert potential victims. Here's FBI director Christopher wray on that. Last July, FBI Tampa gained clandestine, persistent access to hives, control panel, and since then, for the past 7 months, we've been able to exploit that access to help victims while keeping hive in the dark. And that's FBI director Christopher wray, I'm Denise Pellegrini in the Bloomberg newsroom. This is Bloomberg. All right, Denise, thank you. We had some mixed economic news today fueling the hope for a soft landing we'll talk more
The One Way Ratchet With the CCP
"All right, mister secretary, one of the things you put in here that I did not anticipate seeing. And I don't know that many people will pick up on it on page one 79. China is not part of the intermediate range nuclear forces agreement. We know that Russia violates it. China is not a party to it. You write quote, we will one day need capabilities of our own installed, meaning intermediate range nuclear missiles within reach of the Chinese periphery. That's a big deal. Do you expect pushback on that? Goodness. From who, here, from D.C. establishment. The blob. From the blob, almost certainly. The central thesis that I talk about with the Chinese Communist Party is it's been a one way ratchet. They do something we bow down. They move, we turn the other cheek. They're aggressive. We tell them please don't do that again. And they just keep rolling. So the central thesis is this concept of being reciprocal. Just we should behave the way they do. They now are capable of using their boats intermediate range and long-range missiles to strike things that matter an awful lot to the United States of America. And these intermediate range missiles are important for lots of reasons. We don't have time to speak to it. The book talks about it a little bit. But yes, I'm confident that we will find nations that want to host our intermediate range facilities and that we will do so. This will be the way that we gain the deterrence, the very deterrence that Ronald Reagan came to understand in Europe in the last century. We will have to execute to make sure to protect America from the threat of the Chinese Communist Party in this century.
Fresh update on "chinese. communist party" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Matt Gaetz, what is your reaction then to Mike Pence being investigated by the for the document mishandling, that's what's your reaction? I've never really been here for the document drama. I said back in September, Charlie, that probably every presidential library in the country and every library collected by presidents, vice presidents, secretaries of state, probably there's some lack of compliance with some technical provision of the records act. Now, if these Biden documents have to do with burisma or China and they were at the Biden pen center that was funded by China, I mean, there's an over half $1 million donation to the Biden pen center directly from an entity that runs China's thousand talents program, which our own intelligence community has assessed is part of their intellectual property theft regime. Run by the Chinese Communist Party. So if it has to do with those substantive matters, then all bets are off and it's treason. It would be treason of Joe Biden to take classified documents and give them to Chinese operatives or our operatives paid for by China for money to the Biden pen center. Let's be very clear about that. But if this is like, you know, some correspondence or some briefing materials from yesteryear that never had any relevance at the point at which they were taken out. I don't think that this is like, you know, the crime of the century, whether they're talking about Trump or Biden or Pence. Matt Gaetz, 30 seconds remaining, your thought on Adam Schiff running for the United States Senate seat in California. Well, I guess not being on the intelligence committee gives Adam Schiff a little more time. That's going to be a very interesting field. Katie Porter has entered the field and remember California has become such a machine state. There hasn't been a real open opportunity for a Senate seat like this. Adam Schiff is my least favorite member of Congress. He is the least ethical member of Congress. He should be defeated in the primary, if not that, the general. But it would be interesting to see ro Khanna run for the U.S. Senate, right? I mean, he's somebody who works with Republicans on populist issues. He obviously disagrees with us on more issues than that, but hey, ro Khanna will at least take a phone call if you're an independent minded, if you're a Republican. And if you have an idea that he thinks he can work with you on to save the country. So I'd love to see Khan I get in that race and whoop shift. Very good. Matt, thank you so much. Talk to you soon. Appreciate it. Thank you, Charlie. Thanks so much for listening, everybody. Email me your thoughts is always freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Thanks so much for listening. And God bless.

The Most Dangerous Man in the World
"That's true. Page two 31, you write, I first met the most dangerous man in the world on June 14th, 2018. That's bracing. You're talking about president Xi. Why is he the most dangerous man in the world, mister secretary? He's the most dangerous man in the world because as I was taught as a young cadet, there's two things you need to evaluate. Capacity and intent. The Chinese Communist Party has enormous capacity. It's got problems. Let's get demographic issues. It's got financial challenges, but it's got 1.4 billion people a massive missile and nuclear capability. A large relatively sophisticated military cyberspace, you name it. It has enormous capacity. And the economic throw weight to put behind it as well. And then intent, Xi Jinping has been unambiguous about his desire. And we often talk about in the context of Taiwan. Yep, he says, I want to reunify. China, what he means by that is go capture the sovereign nation, the great democratic people that live on the island of Taiwan. That says mission, but his mission is so much bigger than that. He wants to undermine the western way of life. The things we love, the fact that we can go to church and worship the way we want, the fact that we can teach our kids the things we want. We pick the job. We can speak. We have a First Amendment. He wants to take all that down and once the world to run much more like his giant authoritarian surveillance state. We can't let that happen. He has the capacity and intent to make our children and grandchildren live in a very different world than we have a responsibility to make sure that he doesn't even get close to that.
What the Left-Wing Media Is Trying to Cover Up
"Folks whenever I need to see what the left is trying to cover up I go to the left wing media and I listen to us story not the story Our story is what the left wing media is telling you The story is the real thing And yesterday as this story broke what did you hear all over the news You heard FBI agent arrested He was dealing with Paul Manafort Trump's campaign manager Oh my gosh And this Russian there are going to do a whole show on myself by the way Which is funny because immediately I went to the indictment and that's just a small portion of it The real scandal is this FBI guy allegedly doing business with Albanians connected to the Chinese Communist Party And by the way likely the same company doing business in Albania because it was reported on by The Washington Post in The New York Times So you see here's what likely happened to you We have such a corrupt upper level of the FBI and some lower level guys too again They don't get a pass either And such a corrupt DoJ that they said listen Donald Trump's running for president he's pledging to clean out the swamp Joe Biden's probably sitting in office one day going listen my kid's on the payroll he's foreign governments okay Joe Biden's thinking in his head he's probably not saying out loud I'm making decisions about these foreign governments where my son's on the payroll So that's kind of sounds bad So I got to do something so we can't have this Donald Trump getting elected president All of a sudden Hillary's team pops up and as if by magic they're like oh we got an idea Let's just accuse Donald Trump of colluding with the Russians Well did he No he didn't what are you an idiot No we're just making it up And Joe Biden's saying okay how can I help
Maria Bartiromo Makes the Connection Between Money, Biden & China
"How much did Joe Biden know And was Hunter Biden using his dad and selling his dad out too while his dad was selling out the country That would be the ultimate irony Listen to bartiromo Lay out the disturbing new churn in Biden's document scandal New reports this morning indicate some of the documents were placed at yet another temporary address This time in D.C.'s Chinatown neighborhood Before traveling to the Penn Biden think tank in D.C. which of course paid Biden $900,000 after the think tank accepted a donations millions from China Also the daily mail is reporting that the packing up of the documents at the tail end of Biden's vice presidency were overseen by an aid recommended by first son Hunter Biden We do not know what she knew about the classified documents Kathy Chung was ultimately reporting we do not know if she was ultimately reporting back to the Chinese Communist Party Joining me right now with more on the committee's work following these new discoveries is House oversight and reform chairman congressman James comer Mister chairman your reaction to these new discoveries what do we know about the links between Joe Biden and communist China in terms of the money paid to the Biden family has that dictated the way he treats our number one adversary Look I think most Americans would be shocked if they saw how many connections the Biden family has to people directly affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party It's very startling Yeah congressman it sure as hell is
Donald Trump Jr.: $50k a Month Rent by Biden Makes No Sense
"The FBI has treated him like Hillary Clinton And they've treated the former president quite differently What do you make all this Well I think it just shows the hypocrisy that's continually jammed down our approach Mark When what's going on right now what are we at The 5th that justified documents in the house that was just rented by Hunter Biden with his Chinese Communist Party connections with crane connections with his Russian connections is renting a house in depth for $50,000 a month from his dead I mean that's definitely not 10% for the big guy right That definitely doesn't reek of corruption And no but in all fairness Mark imagine if it was me What would they be saying I did a search on compass the real estate website to find out what's the most expensive home in Wilmington I think for $4500 a month That's the best way You think hunters renting for 50 grand and it's not corruption you think that's not the kickback You think that's not the 10% It's actually discussing So now he had access to the classified documents You have the ones that the pen center the pen center didn't just magically show up the day after Joe Biden stopped being vice president It took a while to establish and build and the Chinese Communist Party funded that to the tune of $54 million And those documents are just lying around there Joe Biden had the gall to go on TV and talk about how irresponsible yada yada yada The Mar-a-Lago documents it was known by the national archives it was at Trump's personal residence It was under lock and key and it was guarded by the United States Secret Service And as president he had the ability to actually declassify those documents Joe Biden didn't do And or couldn't do And they have the goal to go out there and do their whataboutism I'm going to tell you how much different it is It's absolutely disgusting And it shows you there's no equal justice under the law
America Just Had Its Worst Aviation Disruption Since 9/11
"We have a lot of news to get to, but let's dive right into it. I want to play cut 52, the FAA, the federal aviation administration, is having a tough day for millions of people that are trying to travel across the country. They have been grounded. Flights have been suspended. Now, there are some flights being resumed thankfully, but there are still over 10,000 flight delays across the country. Let's play cut 52. The FAA tweeting, it is quote experiencing an outage with its notice to air missions system which provides critical flight safety operation information. We are closely monitoring the situation, which impacts all airlines and working with the FAA, to minimize disruption to our operation and customers. We encourage customers to check AA dot com for the latest flight information. Now, the question that many people have is what is causing this? Is it some sort of a cyberattack? Is it a hack? It could be the government is saying it's not, but it could be the Chinese Communist Party retaliating against the House Republicans that have just set up a subcommittee that is expressly anti CCP. And by the way, I don't know if the House Republicans are going to be able to keep up this pace, but they are posting win after win after win. Could be that they're just getting all the conservative stuff out of the way first, or it could be that a new boss is in Washington, D.C. in the House of Representatives, because the amount of wins that we have seen in the last 24 hours makes anything that Paul Ryan and John Boehner did seem like almost nothing from committees to kicking people off committees. Elon the ingrate Eric swalwell, the fang fang lover and many others. We're going to get into that. But it could be the Chinese Communist Party is retaliating via a cyberattack against the FAA notams system because of that committee. That is probably unlikely though.
The Plan for Big Tech Accountability
"Now, in terms of getting cooperation on the espionage side, you've got to get the executives from meta the executives from Google, the executives from all of the large social media companies in to talk to you about TikTok and other issues, including penetration of their own organization by agents of the Chinese Communist Party. Duke anticipate anticipation from big tech on this committee. Well, I'm sure some big tech executives are not eager to talk to the committee. But the approach I'm taking now is one of, okay, I want to give you an opportunity to explain your position. I come in with certain preexisting biases. If you want to make a counter argument, that's fine, but we're going to do it out in the open for the American people to see. And if he refused to comply with that discussion and my honest desire to have that discussion, I think ultimately that's going to be a bad look for your company. And I think you're going to get you're going to invite more scrutiny from Congress than there already is. The fact is, big tech has to confront the growing suspicion about their allegiances, the growing suspicion about their practices, the perception that there's a complete lack of transparency and it's not just my committee that would have an interest in that. It's going to be Jim Jordan's committee that has an interest in that, particularly when it comes to the perceived collusion between certain big tech companies and the Biden administration. So they ignore those questions. They ignore our request to testify at their own peril. And just look at what's happened in TikTok over the two TikTok in the last two months. There's been a sea change in Congress in terms of recognizing the threat posed by TikTok. We had an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote in favor of banning TikTok on government devices. I have a bill for the broader ban that has democratic support. Mark Warner is talking about the threat posed by TikTok in the Senate show. If you hesitate, if you prevaricate, you're going to invite more congressional scrutiny and opposition. So I hope that that doesn't happen. I also want to give an opportunity for the tech companies that are out there that I know have a more patriotic view right now or at least still think of themselves as American companies and recognize how essential they are to us winning this long-term competition with China. I want to give them an opportunity to talk about how we win, right? We can not win this unless we have American companies that are out innovating their Chinese counterparts and indeed think of themselves as Americans. So I think I don't think we'll have any problems getting big tech to comply. If they do, it's just going to be very problematic for them.
"chinese. communist party" Discussed on WLS-AM 890
"Mustache in your nose glasses on, and the Secret Service go, oh, oh, okay, you go right ahead. And then he gets down to Mar-a-Lago with the locked door with these alleged classified documents. And he magically has to get out some kind of, he always is an advocate. So he goes Macgyver, and he gets his lock picking, and no one notices this, by the way, nobody. He's now slipped past at least 20 people. No one's looking for him at the dinner either, right? And he's downstairs with the lock picking thing, and he's picking the lock, and in some Secret Service guy sees him on camera. Sir, why are you picking the lock to the room with the classified documents? I'm looking for the bathroom. I got to take a leak. I drank too much. Oh, no problem. Yes. There's no bathroom behind that door, but continue picking the lock anyway, because there may be something I don't know about. Have a nice day, sir. That's okay. That story is perfectly acceptable because you probably never been to Mar-a-Lago. You don't know how it's set up. You've never been in this Secret Service. I know a little bit about that. I met a guy once who was in the Secret Service. Nice guy. Really nice guy. He told me a little bit about it at a dinner one night. So I just know what that. So I also have friends over there, but that's a whole other story. I don't want to get anybody in trouble, but you have no idea. But now your story is a university. Universities, by the way, not known for being like Secret Service level security bunkers. A university Biden had classed my documents. We don't know where they were held. When they in some kind of government approved safe for me, we have no idea. And all of a sudden the stories A-okay with you. You're absolutely fine with it. He was Tucker addressing this point last night. This is a little bit long, but a minute 30 seconds. But Tucker addressing this point last night. Not just about how much other frauds these Democrat media goons and losers. But how the Chinese Communist Party and their donors. They have this way of influencing American universities and institutions, that they know these classified documents were there because they'd be really beneficial to them. Check this out. So as Biden was saying that, it turns out that he was and you'll be shocked to hear this doing exactly the same thing that he accused Donald Trump of doing. Joe Biden was storing classified documents in a private office at a fake think tank that has been set up for him at the University of Pennsylvania. That fake think tank is called the Penn Biden center for diplomacy and global engagement at the University of Pennsylvania. Now, we should say we don't know exactly what these classified documents are. And unlike Michael beschloss and the former head of the CIA, we're not going to speculate. But according to Cena and they were very sensitive, quote the classified materials included some top secret files with the sensitive compartmented information designation, also known as SCI, which is used for highly sensitive information, obtained from intelligence sources. So what exactly were these materials were they the nuclear codes? We're probably going to find out pretty soon because there's no question Merrick Garland will unleash one of his signature pre dawn raids on the University of Pennsylvania at any moment. Because it's a national security threat. Merrick Garland will get right on that. But actually Penn may be a national security event. We know you're very impressed you're nephew got in, but Penn, as an institution, takes an awful lot of money from the Chinese Communist Party, not making that up. In recent years, Penn has received more than $50 million from anonymous Chinese donors. So the question is, were those donors peering at the classified documents the national security secrets that Joe Biden had been stashing at the fake think tank that Penn set up for him? How much access do they have exactly these documents? Yeah, it kind of kind of a good question there. Well, D.C., kind of a good question. Chinese Communist Party connected officials or donors, possibly donating $50 million to UPenn Joe Biden decides he's going to play some classified documents. Again, if you're a liberal in your defenses, Joe Biden didn't know. Sit down and shut up. That's an even dumber please. You're making yourself look even worse. Now you're saying that cognitively impaired president is such an idiot that they removed classified documents, him and his team that didn't even know about it and lost track of them? That's your best defense. You better go back to the old one. That they knew. Because the new one makes you look even dumber if that's even possible. So some early takeaways, they were found 6 days before the election, yet you heard nothing about it. Yet if it was a Donald Trump scandal, I guarantee you it would have leaked to every major media outlet in the world to influence the election. Second, who had access to the space? Who had access to that speech? Who was in those rooms? The answer is we probably don't know. Because the security there was probably de minimis. Here is, I believe, the most important takeaway, this entire gem of a story. And I don't mean that in a qualitatively good way. Joe Biden, these are documents, although Joe Biden is president now. These are documents from his time has vice president, not president. Why does that matter? It matters folks because the vice president of the United States and former vice president of the United States have no authority to declassify documents at all. That is a presidential responsibility. So again, you're talking points liberals and I'll get to some of those in a minute, some of the ridiculous defenses, political playbook put out, which are laughable. Your defense that this just could have been some mistake. While Donald Trump, who, by the way, said, I declassified these. What's the proper D classification procedure followed? Folks that's still up in the air. Unlike liberals, I have principles. If they weren't followed, he should have followed them. We'll find that out. However, there is zero dispute that the president of the United States has the unilateral authority to declassify documents. That's why no president has ever had his home rated over a dispute dispute over declassification because the president could say that's not classified and it's not. That is not open for dispute.
Kevin Freeman on the Elites' Secret Plan to Sabotage America
"You and I would say it's globalists. It's people that they don't believe in the idea of America. They hate the founders vision of America. They hate your average American who loves his country and his family and goes to church. And they have a different view and their prosecuting that view. That's what they do. No question. It's globalist Marxist and it's also the Chinese Communist Party. And sometimes they work together, whether it's Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum, they see America and individual liberty, an individual's ability to stand up and make their own life determinations and so forth. As a threat to their collectivism. And the desire for collectivism goes back to the 1800s. It goes back before that to the feudal system. Bottom line is there are a group of people who want to be the elites and they want to control the rest of us. And that is a natural human tendency. And America was an aberration to that. We stood in the way of that. So the desire to take America down from that viewpoint is obvious. It's necessary because the individual liberty helps people escape poverty. It helps people improve their lives, but it also helps them make their own decisions, find God. And do all sorts of wonderful things with individual liberty with collectivism. It's like we saw exactly with the COVID lockdowns. We're the elites. We're smarter than you. We can tell you exactly how to live, what to do, when to do it. And they have control. So that's one group. And the other groups of the Chinese Communist Party who just basically, they want to rule the world. They want to have the Chinese on top as the middle kingdom between heaven and earth controlling everything. So two groups of collectivists operating sometimes together as operating sometimes differently, but both hating America individual liberty.
Why Kevin Freeman Had to Write New Book 'Economic Terrorism'
"Freeman, welcome. Thank you, Eric. Good to be with you. Well, you you're tough to sum up, so I will first of all say that you are the author of according to plan, the elites secret plan to sabotage America and I want to talk to you about that. But you host a show called the economic war room on blaze TV, you're the author of New York Times Best Seller game plan. You're a leading expert on economic warfare, financial terrorism, things that I'm not really familiar with. So where do we start? Why don't I ask you the simple question, your book, according to plan, the elites secret plan to sabotage America. When did you decide to write this? What did you see happening that made you say I have to write a book explaining that what many of us fear is in fact true? Well, when we had researchers go and look at topic after topic, whether it's the border, whether it is Afghanistan, whether it is the response to the healthcare crisis or COVID or whatever. You had to either come to the conclusion that we were entirely incompetent, totally without merit whatsoever, or maybe all of these bad losing things aren't just happening by accident. Maybe it's according to a plan. And when you combine that with the realization of studies that we've done with the Communist Party USA with the Chinese Communist Party, unrestricted warfare with writings from the KGB, you realize that there has been an intended plan to take down America by weakening us from within. Weakening the military are social structure, the family, the church, and you begin to realize this really isn't happening by accident and we're really just not that incompetent. Maybe we are that incompetent, but whatever it is, there is a plan and it is being executed. Now, unfortunately, I agree with what you're saying. And unfortunately, I know that what you're saying is true. And
TikTok, It Must Be Stopped
"I just want to say one great thing happened in 2022. It's hard to find great news in 2022. The Ukrainian resistance that they did not fold up is great but the cost of Ukraine has been so high. And it's been such a savage war, it's hard to say great, though it's been inspiring else zelensky and his people have fought back against the Russian bear. But apparently after two years and actually two and a half years of relentless campaigning by people like me, but mostly secretary of former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, senator Tom cotton, congressman Mike Gallagher, and a few others, TikTok has become radioactive in the United States. Parents get it off of your kids phone as soon as you can. Here's Mike Pompeo in November talking to Brian kilmeade on Fox about TikTok, cutting them rate. A 100%. And if the government won't do it, parents should. We've been talking about this for a long time, Brian. I think now three, three and a half years ago, this is a powerful tool with deeply embedded AI, and it is an element of the Chinese security apparatus. So think about your kids, facial recognition features, who their friends are, everybody they're talking to, this information is all available to the Chinese Communist Party. The FTC chair has it right. The Trump administration had it right, although we didn't get it done. We need to prevent this tool. And all the others like it from impacting American security. But yet
How Is It Legal for the Federal Government to Censor Americans?
"What bothers me is how is it legal for the federal government to sudo sensor or just let's be honest, to censor Americans with these cryptic grants? I mean, there has to be against the First Amendment. The federal government is not allowed to shut people up. But they're doing it any way in this kind of funding instrument. And it's explicitly political because there's another grant from the national science foundation that has specifically targeted a quote countering populist narratives, specifically when it comes to COVID-19 and vaccines. So this is again. I mean, you ask how it's legal. It's not. But I think when you get to play judge jury and executioner of your own. No. Well, frankly, they act like the Chinese Communist Party. There is no oversight because they don't want to oversight. They treat us like crazy people. They want to throw us all and whether it's digital jail. And in sensor us, or in some cases, actual jail, right? I know that with my boss, but it really is a dystopic future that they want for us and they use these terms like misinformation. Turning point from the time I was in high school and college and they were distorting gender and what those words meant back then and now times progress now it's misinformation and disinformation that they're doing the same thing with.
Julie Hartman: Going Solo After Hosting With Dennis Prager
"In another episode, I talked about helicopter parenting versus free range parenting. And pros and cons and that, yesterday I had John moody, who was the former vice president of Fox News on to talk about his new book, the world we wish, which is about the Chinese Communist Party's stranglehold on power. So it's really fun to do, even though it's a bit harder than just conversing with Dennis, which is so natural, I'm having a blast with it. Well, and I'm having a blast listening to it because following your story is such a good one because it's good for sort of lifelong conservatives to get a perspective of somebody your age from your worldview and somebody who was just sort of open minded and a guy like Dennis prager sort of changed your ideology and I just loved the story and I'm enjoying the podcast so much. I hope everybody checks it out. You go to Salem podcast network dot com and Julie, we've put together, I mean, it's fun and I'm doing a podcast all the Salem hosts are engaged in this, but this sale and podcast network is turning into quite the impressive, I mean, we call it a beast. It's chock full of great content. Oh, it certainly is. I mean, what a lineup we have. It's such an honor to be a long side you guys who are tightens of this industry. And all of you at sale have been so kind to me. I mean, I just want to tell your listeners Mike that you are one of the nicest people on air and off air. As far as your graciousness and your helpfulness. I want your listeners to hear that. No, don't give up. Don't you don't let the secret get out. Please, please. Let's keep that you're the best. I
Setting the Agenda for the Select Committee on China
"Mister secretary, everybody's in chairman incoming chairman Gallagher's ear, including me about what the committee ought to do about China. I am curious what your advice is to every member, Democrat and Republican, especially chairman Gallagher about the new select committee on China. What should it aim to get done? Sherman Gallagher was a perfect fit, pick is going to be fantastic. I think he knows precisely the mission set. I would begin where these things always have to be. You have to win the argument. So I would begin by making the case to the American people about why this is in fact worthy of their attention and worthy of their efforts to confront. If we make that case well here at home, we will create the opportunity to actually do the work that the committee and the executive branch need to do. So first piece, I describe it as education, letting everybody know that the Chinese Communist Party is a true threat. They are inside the gate and we have to do something about it. I worked on that as Secretary of State diligently. This committee has the opportunity to go all across the country and tell that story. Second, they ought to start on the things here at home. So think about investments in farmland here in the United States. Think about American pension funds that are invested in Chinese national security companies. Think about Chinese software that's still being used, including I would start on the internal issues because those are the things that directly impact people today. And then of course, we have to prepare our military, our defense capabilities to confront a power that is very militarily capable and with deep intent to change the way that we live.
Elon Musk Vs. Maoism With Jack Posobiec
"Is with us, Jack, what do we make out of these latest Twitter files? There are most being dropped in real time, catch us up to speed here. Right, Charlie, and I've had time to go through a few of this latest batch of the Twitter files. And at first, I think like a lot of people, I had this thought that, oh, look, we know they banned Trump. We know that they said it was incitement to violence. What he said he wasn't going to the inauguration. We've seen it publicly. What's new here? Well, Charlie, there's actually two things that are new here. First of all, was the fact that you did have pushback internally at Twitter from members of the trust and safety team that said unequivocally that they assessed Trump's tweets and did not find any direct or coded incitement to violence. They did not find any of that. And they have that in their own writing. So in order for Twitter to take down not only those tweets, but consider them be in violation, they actually had to override and overrule their own team. But secondly, Charlie, it's the descent into absolute madness that you see through these exchanges internally. Someone at one point just repeating over and over. And this in a public work server talking to their bosses, we have to do the right thing and ban the account. We have to do the right thing and ban the count. We have to do the right thing and ban the account just over and over and over. I want to say tweeting, but I guess it's a slack. Why aren't we doing this? Why aren't we doing this over and over and just repeating it like some sort of pagan incantation again and again at their bosses, but Charlie, the one that really stood out with me was and it's blocked out. So I can't tell if it was a guy who said this or a woman who said this, but there is a quote in here that I want to read for you specifically, Charlie. It's from Thursday, January 7th, 2021. At ten in the morning, I'm guessing that California time Pacific time, and this is a quote from a Twitter employee inside the trust and safety team and I want you to read these words because they they struck me so deeply. Maybe because I am from China. I deeply understand how censorship can destroy the public conversation. Maybe because I am from China, I deeply understand how censorship and destroy the public conversation. And you read between the lines there, what they're saying is, what you are doing at Twitter is akin to the Chinese Communist Party and the censorship of the Internet.
We're Living Through a Simulated Democracy
"Will often hear them say, our democracy, not yours, the one they own, their democracy. Sometimes they give it away that way. And it's these little kind of hints. But the range of what democracy means a lot of people don't realize it is it's the will of the people. But if you just conveniently behind the scenes, redefine what the people mean, like the Chinese Communist Party did, and the people are the people who support the Chinese Communist Party. And the Soviets did the people, the ones they represented are the ones who support the Soviet regime, then what you arrive at is the people's democratic republic of, say, Korea or Canada now, or whatever you want to call it, you have the people's democracy. The people's democracy is a democracy for the people who qualify as people and the people who qualify as people are the people who are in the regime or supported by the regime or support the regime and literally you have Lenin in 1917 or 18 depends on the version, I guess. He published a book called state and revolution, and he explains in the 5th chapter exactly this about the word democracy. He says, what we think is democracy, what we have is actually bourgeois democracy. It's this other kind of bad democracy for the rich people. And so what we are instituting, listen to the contradiction, he says, with the dictatorship of the proletariat, with a dictatorship or implementing a better democracy and what does he say that this people's democracy does, it elevates the voices of the true people and it suppresses the voices that we don't want to have heard. And that's exactly the same program as our democracy today. So what we see is we see simulated elections. We see simulated democracy. We see a mockery of what these things really mean. And then we have good honest conservative people around the country saying, no, no, no, I'm going to preserve what elections mean. I'm going to preserve what democracy means. I'm going to preserve what our republic was based on. And it has these unfortunate effect of turning you into a sucker.

"In the 100 years of the Chinese Communist Party's existence China has seen decades of Civil War, famine, and in recent years, a surge as a global power. But critics say that the country's economic success has come at the expense of human rights and freedom of speech. My colleague Alice Sue the times Beijing bureau chief and covers the ebbs and flow of China. Welcome to the times Alice. Hi. So Alice in the past year, the Chinese Communist Party has been gearing up for its Centennial celebrations. There's been this huge build up, the 100th anniversary is a really big deal. There have been a lot of fake official events. Like we had this huge fireworks display and thousands of people in the birds nest stadium, which they built for the Beijing Olympics. You know, on the street corners, we have photo exhibits, we have screens that are playing patriotic videos with inspirational music. The choices you will see walking around Beijing, trying to observe what was happening. I went to sandy's twin, which is the trendiest shopping area in Beijing and it's known as the place to see NBC, usually there's a lot of street photographers taking pictures of young people and there's these big high rises in the background, but now in the middle of sandy twin, there is this exhibit. So a celebration of 100 years of rejuvenation and what I saw there was there were people lining up around the block to go into this little exhibit where they could take pictures of themselves posing like they're on a high speed train or they're in a little village and it shows kind of the change that's happened. And then later that.

Restart our communication with all sectors of society. Do more explanation work and listen to different views of society. So it felt like a victory for the protesters, but really a lot of them were still in danger of arrest like Daniel. He made the mistake of showing his face during a interview and immediately his friends in the protest movement told him that he was probably going to be targeted by police. You need to live Hong Kong because maybe police will try to arrest you. You do a lot of interest stuff. Yeah. So mid July, Daniel made the decision to leave Hong Kong for Taiwan. It was a sudden decision and he didn't even really have a lot of time to pack. I try to bring more and more, but you know, the time doesn't enough. All my stuff actually are steering Hong Kong. I bring up very few stuff, my personal belonging. Cross some electronic stuff. Can I say his mom and his boyfriend, they saw him off at the airport, but mom actually didn't know the real reason he was leaving. She just thought he was going to Taiwan to study. And Daniel says that night was really emotional for him. When the paint top off and I look at the wheels outside the window, I told myself, maybe I can solve the same view for my entire life. The day CCP is.

"The Chinese Communist Party. By Hana levitt, Bloomberg. JPMorgan Chase chief Jamie Dimon knew as soon as the words came out of his mouth that the joke about China could land him in hot water. I was just in Hong Kong, I made a joke that the Communist Party is celebrating its 100th year. So is JPMorgan. And I'll make you a bet we last longer. He said on Tuesday at a Boston event, then he added, I can't say that in China. They probably are listening anyway. Diamond, no stranger to brashness, also knew the bank would have to engineer a hasty retreat. Soon members of the firm's government relations team and China offices were corralled to discuss the remarks, and decide whether to acknowledge them or let them lie. Some 18 hours later, when it became clear that the comments attracted global attention, diamond issued a statement of regret. Hundreds of individuals, companies and organizations have apologized for hurting the feelings of the Chinese Communist Party, said Isaac stone fish founder of its strategy risks, which specializes in corporate relationships with China. The way diamond said that he regrets his comment is a smarter way to do it. Diamond's remarks made during a visit to the Boston college chief executives club follow a slew of domestic and international trips as JPMorgan's chief executive officer continues to tout a U.S. economic boom that's also put him at the front of Wall Street's return to office push. But his recent travel efforts have been somewhat problematic. The quarantine exemption he earned for his Hong Kong visit, a dispensation also afforded to actress Nicole Kidman, garnered much local criticism. Now he's having to downplay his Boston comments, and it's not the first time. Diamond has a history of provocative remarks that he's been forced to walk back, in 2018 he vowed at a philanthropy event that he could beat Donald Trump in an election because he was smarter than the president. Only to put out a statement hours later, saying he shouldn't have said it. Diamonds Bragg an apology reminded another Wall Street chief executive whose firm is a big JPMorgan shareholder of Lloyd blankfein's joke years ago that Goldman Sachs Group was doing God's work. The attempts bank bosses make to be witty takes on lives of their own, said the executive, who asked for anonymity to avoid connecting his name to a mass. Diamond will also likely get through any fallout, just as blank find it, but the distraction will be unwelcome, the executive set. The mere culpa underscores JPMorgan's desire to keep cordial relations in China, where it has nearly $20 billion of exposure and has ambitions to expand further. Earlier this year, the bank won approval from Chinese regulators to fully own its China security venture, and wants to maintain its good standing in the country for further licensing requests, particularly ahead of major leadership changes in the party expected next year..

"Maybe this is just Jeff trying to figure out what kind of software that building in China. What do they have over there? I'd love to know. I'd love to know what infrastructure looks like. I went to a KubeCon China one time and it was very interesting. They had some very interesting architectures too bad I couldn't communicate with them because I don't speak Mandarin, I think it is. I wish I did. I wish there were more open lines of communication between the United States and China so that I can meet engineers over in China and shake their hands and hang out with them. But there's not, and I can't. And many of the primary ways that I would meet an engineer who's from China in America is through somebody who's in an H one B program. And the H one B Visa program is essentially indentured servitude. So in America, we're still sponsoring indentured servitude. That's great. That's really great that we're still doing this. We're still enslaving people. We do it through an H one B program and we basically hire these people and then we threaten them. We threatened to export them back to their home country to suffer further imprisonment if they don't work our most boring and tedious work at a corporation. And it's really unfortunate because it forces our corporations to be complicit in this madness, where we just subjugate people from another country, just to give them the privilege of American citizenship. American citizenship wasn't meant to be handed out like a privilege. It was meant to be it was meant to be given to people as a way of refuge or just by a default. We've got a lot of open space here. We've got a lot of room for people who can contribute to America. And we should be letting in a lot more people, we should be doing it with open arms and obviously in a in a way that is safe to national security, but. There's so much wrong with the geopolitical situation right now. And a lot of it has to do with technology. And I don't hear any technologists taking a stand. I see a lot of people who are just sitting behind their desk saying nothing eating Cheetos, drinking coffee, not doing anything to help their fellow to help their fellow man. Or woman, and there's really no excuse. Whoever you are, listening to this on your iPhone or your AirPods, you, do you even realize you're at war? If you're not at war, you're making a mistake. If you're not at war, you're being lazy. This is not complicated. They have concentration camps where they harvest people's organs. They they torture them. They sterilize people, this is not a joke. This is not okay. This is a country that we do massive amounts of trade with. This is a country that we are completely interleaved with. There's not an excuse. We should be speaking out against this stuff. It's not acceptable. It's simply not acceptable. I don't care if it deprives you of your iPhone or your computer or your hardware or your Cheetos or your coffee or your paper or your cars or any civilized object, go learn to farm. It doesn't matter. You can not sit idly by while the Chinese are sterilizing human beings and harvesting their organs. And by the way, just simply controlling their people through a great firewall, a great firewall we're sitting by while they have a great firewall, they have a great firewall that literally segregates them from the rest of the world, and we don't care about that. That's a major problem. How are people not talking about this? Oh, because free speech here is completely censored. And whose fault is that? The tech companies. And how do the tech companies get started with venture capital? And who's the most notable loudest venture capital firm in the last several years? Andreessen Horowitz. They have Chinese Communist Party sympathizers in the growth team and the infrastructure team, leading the consumer team. They seem like great people over there. They seem very entertaining. They seem very wealthy. They seem very happy with their decisions in life. I disapprove. And I welcome you to listen to all of my content with andreessen Horowitz's people. I've interviewed Ben Horowitz, the number one guy. It was one of my favorite interviews. I've listened to it probably 5 times. Because I respect bend horus approach to leadership. He simply made a series of mistakes here on his way to domination of Silicon Valley. You know, I've interviewed Vijay pande about quantum computing. I interviewed Peter Levine about the future of the cloud. I interviewed sonal chalky, the controller of their media arm. And I just think they're awesome. And I always have thought they're awesome as an organization. And by the way, I actually don't even really have anything against these. Chinese Communist Party sympathizer Chinese people at andreessen Horowitz. It's more that I think the fact that they are intimidated by their by nature intimidated because because they probably have relatives, they probably have connections to China that are just unavoidable. They simply have no choice. But to work in favor of their government. And to make decisions that are in favor of ultimately their government, which is the Chinese Communist Party. I'm sorry, I'm really, really sorry if this comes off as racist. I'm sorry if it comes off as prejudiced. It's not. Again, I've dated Chinese women for the last two years almost exclusively because I was pretty sure I was going to have to do this. I hope to marry a Chinese woman someday to be honest and it's that's not a fetish. There's one in particular that I have in mind. But. What can I say? This is what I believe. I'm not kidding here. I don't have an axe to grind. I don't have a bone to pick. I simply think that.

"Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has a great saying about how you should choose a partner in marriage. You should choose a partner who can break you out of a Chinese prison is what Jeff Bezos is on the record as saying. And I've thought about that quote a lot. Ever since I was an engineer at Amazon, I've consumed every piece of information I can find about what Jeff Bezos has to say about everything because I think he's the smartest business person in the world. I worked at Amazon for 8 months and I fully believe Amazon is the best run company in America. Andreessen Horowitz is run by Chinese Communist Party sympathizers. Why is that a problem? It's a problem because the Chinese Communist Party borders on being as bad as the Nazis. They already have concentration camps. They've already been censoring free speech for as long as I can remember. And I believe they're censoring free speech in America. They're censoring it by extension of authoritarian technologists who think they know what can and can not be said in the world. And that authoritarianism starts with the venture capitalists. The venture capitalists control the flows of money through Silicon Valley and therefore they control the flows of resources into technology companies. The venture capitalists by and large get to choose what can and can not be done in a software company. This doesn't happen in every case, but in very many cases with the exception of something like Mark Zuckerberg, who was able to get control this massive controlling share in his company, a lot of times the venture capitalists just control the world. And a lot of times it's just through their private companies. But there are occasions where a public company can manage to end up having ownership. By a essentially a foreign authority. And that would be the case if on recent Horowitz was allowed to IPO. You can't have a venture capital firm that can essentially funnel money from China from the Chinese Communist Party into American companies and control them. Case in point on recent Horowitz's number one employee, Jennifer Lee, aside from the fact that I dated her, I found out a lot of information that's kind of disturbing. Namely that her parents work for the energy industry in China. They're deeply tied to the Chinese government. Now. Maybe they're on the right side of history. Maybe her parents and her are on the right side of history. But all I can say is that my personal interactions with her have been so disturbing and so cold, that I can't help but think this person is un American. Now I don't want to have some nativist tendency here. This is really more about are you in favor of the Chinese Communist Party or are you in favor of freedom? The Chinese Communist Party is not in favor of freedom. Right now it's citizens are so terrified that the government is going to be isolated or mismanaged that they're stocking up on food. Literally are fellow human beings in China are stocking up food. That's how poorly their advanced government is run. That's how brazen they've been in their military because their supply chains are very likely going to get shut down by foreign forces who want to isolate China because they really don't like how China treats its citizens. China is behaving so poorly if you look at them from a top down perspective. I love Chinese people. I truly do. I have dated almost exclusively Chinese women for the last two years. And a large part of that is I wanted to understand this culture. I wanted to understand why they are the way they are. And I believe a lot of it is because they are remotely controlled, essentially. The Chinese people who make it make it here, many of the ones who are in very, very fortunate circumstances, they have relatives back in China. And you and I don't know very much about the Chinese education system. I'm not an expert in it. Maybe you are, but my intuition is that the Chinese education system is so pervasively indoctrinating. That it teaches you to essentially undermine your fellow human being for the sake of the Chinese government. And I believe that many of the people who are allowed to come here, part of the reason they're allowed to come here is because they are they have proven to be loyal enough to essentially be inserted here because. Again, I don't want this to be nativist. I don't want this to be inclined as racist. I am opposed to the Chinese leadership. Not to the Chinese people themselves. But there are people such as andreessen Horowitz finest that seem to be friendly to the Chinese Communist Party. Because the way in which they act is bringing about a stasis. It's bringing about a censored world that is un American. And you have to look no further than a person like Mark Zuckerberg. Who essentially treats America like it's China. In the sense that he imposes absurd restrictions on speech absurd mechanisms of human control that are so obviously outside the bounds of what we should what we should be allowing here. There are a lot of people who really think I've gone off my rocker and they're just waiting for me to come back to normal the normal version of Jeff. No, that's not happening because if you're listening to this in your shocked right now, you haven't been watching the plot. China has concentration camps. This is not a this is not a situation where you get to say, oh the entire world has concentration camps. We've always had concentration camps. Concentration camps are not a new thing. No, I'm pretty sure they're kind of a new thing to be having in China in a big way. I don't remember reading about Chinese concentration camps until pretty recently. Maybe I haven't been paying attention if that's the case all the better than they've been doing concentration camps for even longer. All the more reason to go after this party. This is not right. I get to spend my days hanging out in American freedom and there's a person across the world in China who played the same genetic lottery that I did. And got extraordinarily lucky, unlucky to be growing up in a highly constrained environment where they have a great firewall. You can't even use Dropbox in China. You can't even use most of the things that I report on in software engineering daily in China..

Here is to make sure that the party can stay in place and in power and so there's a big push to make sure that younger generations love the party. You know everywhere you see. Everybody go in china. You see these banners at say loved party followed the party live the party. The way classes for instance curriculums are instituted in china. All follow that seem and so from a very young age.

"Alice china's reached the stage. Where anyone who has documented history that doesn't fit with the official chinese government narrative has been arrested or fled abroad. Well sometimes it does seem that way. And when i speak with people like chongqing or online archivists in my story they speak about how hopeless they feel because it does seem like those are the only two options. You need to go abroad or you're going to end up in jail but you know when i'm on the ground reporting. I'm often surprised by the fact that you never really know. Completely what is their below the surface in china. And sometimes you know in the most unexpected places. You'll find someone who actually holds thoughts that go against the government narrative and they just never had anyone to talk about it so even going back to this scene that we described earlier last friday when i was in that shopping. Area and soundly twin. I was listening to the patriotic songs and watching the patriotic video. And i thought you know. I'm going to go interview a patriotic volunteer and get some quotes about how they are of one hundred years of history. I saw this group of elderly men. They were all wearing red hats and red armbands which marks them as neighborhood volunteers for the event and i went to talk to one of them. There's this old man kind of wearing his red hat and red armbands standing in front of the video screen. That was playing videos of rocket. Blast off and you know great china in the future. His name was young year in and he was seventy two years old. And when i asked him you know what do you think about this. One hundred years celebration. He's surprised me because he actually paused. And he knew that i was foreign media and he said you know one hundred years it is something remarkable but i can't help but think there are some things that we still need to reflect more on roy. Moore the gogol shots. There are mistakes that we've made and we haven't thought enough about them. Like many people of his generation. He knows a lot of melted. Don't quotes and it was quite interesting. He actually quoted this line from amount to me which was insurance input gel sharia law which means humility makes one progress in advance. An arrogance makes landfall behind them team to walk luggage. Just so you understand. That's a very dangerous thing to say in china and it's especially dangerous to be saying that at the site of patriotic celebration with police around and with everyone coming on the most sensitive week of the year when everyone is meant to be united and proud a chatted more with young and he told me you know he was sent to hey long john province when he was young during the culture revolution when a lot of youth were sent to remote rural areas to work in us telling me how. It's not just that the common people suffered a lot during those years but it's also that he saw how top leadership within the party you know was engaged in these kind of brutal political struggles. He saw leaders being purged and they kind of broke his ideals on his illusions about the glorious pure party. That's leading us. I think he and many people of his generation when they saw the kinds of factional struggles and mutual. Purges that were happening. They realized this is really about power but he also said you know. I'm thinking like this. I'm not sure if it's correct. But i just can't help thinking we need to reflect more. What struck me about. This story is how what the chinese communist party is doing with. Its nation's history. It's exactly what we do here. We've been whitewashing our own history since the days of the mayflower yet the. Us has always quick to judge communist china and others. But we do the same in stay silent. I think what has struck me during my reporting is that you know amid all this competition between the us and china we kind of see a lot of very similar rhetoric coming out of both sides essentially the us and china are competing right now to prove you know who has the better system and who can be a stronger country based on their type of governance and for china. At least it's very much about showing. Obviously it's us obviously as the communist party. We are so strong. We are so united. We're able to get rid of kovic we're able to now send rockets into space and a lot of the focus is on achievement and accomplishment. But while reporting i think what struck me was that the people that i meet who actually lived through. That past are not so fixated on a type of strength. That's defined by skyscrapers.

"And how that understanding can contribute to better relations with china in the future. I'm your host. Ralph finale and welcome to policy. Cast tony welcome. I was hoping we could start by going back to the beginning because these days many people think of the chinese communist party is this all powerful entity that's built an economic juggernaut and that can do things like control access to the internet for over a billion people yet. You say that back in. Its early days. The party faced seemingly impossible odds just to survive. What happened in those early years. And how did it survive. Whatever one thinks that the chinese con artists an extraordinary story. First of all it probably should really existed in the first place. It was only with considerable soviet support. Thirty got off the ground. It was almost destroyed. Nineteen twenty seven when its earth. While partners in the nationalist movement decided rather than them being squeezed lemon installing said they would squeeze the communists and then it survived another symbol or it survived of you know the invasion from japan and then eventually conflicts wants more. Who the nationalist between forty five and forty nine. And if we wrap all of that together there were just certain moments where its survival looked improbable or at least if it was going to survive. It wouldn't necessarily emerge as the dominant force in chinese system and yet it did and it's testament to a number of things. One is its ability to be flexible to adapt to changing circumstances. It didn't cleave closely to a vigorous interpretation of marxism leninism. It was willing to work. We bandits with different gangs and groups if necessary was Willing to make unholy alliances to keep itself going body always had the eye on the prize the prize of course being the ruling party within china and then there's no doubt. The japanese invasion helped. The chinese communist party wasn't a sole reason for his victory. But it was slowly being squeezed. By the nationalist forces befall. The japanese not make the nationalist had to turn their attention away from his lingering the communist threat to working supposedly together with the communists to resist the japanese and that allowed. Chinese comments padres rebuild. It allows them in many ways to protect their arm his while the nationalism is we're taking the battery from the japanese and begin to put together strategies but what they saw the inevitable civil war that would follow in. They lock happens. I mean basically. The nationalists were incompetent. They made a number of very severe mistakes. One civil war started which made the most of their league troops got. Cut off in the northeast of china which then allowed the chinese communists to begin to infiltrate further down through the country. So it's remarkable story. It encompasses things like long march which is probably best known to most people where you know they covered something like six thousand miles in certain number of days set out almost one hundred thousand and that was six or seven or eight thousand by the time they reached the destination node actually knowing whether destination was going to be so whatever one thinks of it is most ordinary story. You mentioned that one of the ways. The chinese communist party has survived has been its ability to adapt and that theme runs throughout your book..

"Crackdown from the communist in Beijing. With so much turmoil at home. This major event is barely a footnote in the newspapers of America. The Chinese Communist Party is on the move on the new administration best be wary. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joined me on the Hugh Hewitt show. Let me ask you about President Biden. Do you expect him to stand up to the Chinese Communist Party or sit down because after he's financed by Hollywood and big tech, and they're compromised by the Chinese Communist Party I think the world and that includes the American people will continue to demand that the United States secure Uh, freedom before them on, then includes pushing back against the challenge of our time. That is the challenge of the Chinese Communist Party in its capacity and intention. You expand its influence and ultimately deliver. Ah, world that is very different, Well not governed by the rule of law by respect for sovereignty, all the things that the world has come to know. The post World War. Two environment. The Chinese Communist Party wants to upend with a very different theory of international relations, one dominated by the East one controlled in a way that won't create more security freedom, more prosperity. I am confident the American people demanded whoever. Is leading their country. President elect Biden included respond to that in a way that continues to make sure that America remains the country. It has asked for the last 240 plus years and that the world continue to operate under set of rules that are Based in human rights based in the law, based in respect for sovereignty that those air core principles the idea of reciprocity is important. And I think every American leader understands the necessity for that. Again going back to the Nixon library speech, You said, quote in Hollywood not too far from here as we were in Yorba Linda, the epicenter of American creative freedom and self appointed arbiters of social justice. Self censors, even the most mildly unfavorable reference to China. I'd like to expand on that Mr Secretary, the experience that this weekend you know, this era's version of Oliver Laurel is a guy named Seth Rogan. And after hitting me once he exploded in anger and vulgarity me on Twitter. When I invite him on this program to discuss the Chinese Communist Party, he replied, Quote My movies don't come out in China. Sidestepping the issue of Hollywood cow towing to Beijing, despite its repression of the Wickers despite Hong Kong is that changing has has Hollywood woken up, even if You know celebrities adopting disguise ignorance with invective. Is it changing in Hollywood? You have not seen that yet. The Capacity of the Chinese Communist Party to influence just Hollywood. But the me our media more broadly, whether that's through investment interests whether that's through Threats that they would have access to the markets in China. Whether that is simply people hanging out at the same cocktail parties. It is the case that we have permitted the Chinese Communist Party take in get inside of our schools, our research institutions. Uh, you spoke about our media in Hollywood. Those those are things that fundamentally present risk to the sovereignty of the United States America for decades, we turned the other cheek. We allow this to go on. I think just this President Trump has said. We've had enough That can't continue to happen, and the United States needs to do everything it can. The government needs to do everything it can to prevent that from continuing to happen. The most recent example. Feeding the Dragon is a book by a Hollywood executive Chris Fenton, and the most recent example of what he describes his cow towing is Tom Cruise, iconic Bomber jacket in top gun, too. Removed the Taiwan flag from it Now, is that insidious? Is that something we should ignore? Is that just silly comedians like Seth Rogan? Or is that a real problem? A flag on a jacket off standing alone. That's right. Okay, um, fine, but what it is is it is a bellwether. It's in an indicator. It is a signal for the depth capacity breath scope. That the levels to which the Chinese Communist Party will reach and in fact has reached to influence how Americans think about their own country. These efforts. He's influence operations are real. And the effort to undermine our institutions are central Western Democratic institutions. American Republicans real and we have to make sure that we do everything we can to call it out, identified when the American people become aware, but when they know L demand that not only government do the right thing. But there were a man that the demand that the people who sell them products to people who provide them services all behave in a way that is consistent with American national security. We have seen that throughout history before you I'm confident we'll see it again. I want to go. One more quote from the Nixon speech, Nixon library speech. You said Mr second date. We have to keep in mind that the Chinese Communist Party regime is a Marxist Leninist regime. General secretaries you Jinping is a true believer in a bankrupt totalitarian ideology. And about Reagan's old saw trust, but verify you said quote. I say we must distrust and verify. Do you think the incoming administration embraces this attitude towards the Chinese Communist Party? Only time will tell. I don't know the answer to that coming up..
