This is a premium article from the Epoch Times, but even if you’re not a paid subscriber, you should know the basics of what it says.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/from-dove-to-hawk-nebraska-governor-explains-lessons-from-dealing-with-ccp_3879190.html

It details how Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts went from being a big proponent of international trade to working to reduce China’s influence on his state and America. His evolution started with a trade mission to China, where he was welcomed with open arms and puff pieces in the media. But he soon realized deception was baked into the alleged reforms he was told about. He said the CCP talks right, but goes left. He and his staff were also followed and monitored, and one had his hard drive stolen from his computer.

But what really opened his eyes was when China tried to retaliate against Trump’s tough trade policies by targeting Midwest farmers, which backfired when they stood by Trump. Also at that time, Ricketts began to learn of their horrific human rights abuses.

Now, Ricketts is not only trying to separate Nebraska from China’s influence (he’s even banned Chinese-owned TikTok from state government devices), he’s also warning other leaders to be wary of dealing with China’s communist government. He says they have a long-range plan of dominance while too many American politicians and corporations only care about short-term gains. He’s trying to warn Wall Street that anything American companies put into China will no longer belong to them, including trade secrets. He said, “So many publicly traded companies are driven quarter-to-quarter by earnings. And so that tends to make them more short-term oriented, rather than seeing the bigger, long-term picture.”

Sound like any company you can think of, or does that reference go “Swoosh” over your head?

    I'm very glad Gov Ricketts finally caught on. I've been very nervous about China for 20 years now, while friends thought I was paranoid. They were slowly buying up USA at the time and I don't understand why they were allowed to do it. Friends thought I should be concerned about Iraq and I told them, no that's just a distraction, it's China we need to watch out for.

    I don't buy from China, it is very difficult but can be done. My coffee pot is made in the Netherlands, my toaster is a 1939 Sunbeam. My dental floss comes from Ireland, clothes are tough, what I'm wearing today comes from Bangladesh. We manufacture very little. Pay a little more (or not) and MAGA.

    Thank you for explaining the article as the premium Epoch Times link brings up an error code, not the article. People and businesses need to steer clear of doing business with China.

    A few years back I lived in eastern WA state and traveled to Idaho for my Chiro visits. I noticed Chinese lacquered vases in the office. I asked the Dr about them and he told me he and other business owners had gone on a trip to China. I heard later that then Gov. Butch Otter had sold
    large portions of the state to the Chinese. Shouldn't all the states check up on this in their own states.
