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 agree with Sen. Cotton on not letting that woman athlete in the Olympics. Don’t want her to represent our country. She should leave it.
    My server would not let me have the link on China. Said there was an error.

    Mike,
    I ordered items through advertising on Facebook that stated MADE IN THE USA...... I have had an ongoing battle with the company ever since...... they are actually in China and the product is coming from China as well ... Shouldn't FB be monitoring this kind of thing? I have an email chain that 1st they "claimed" their HQ is in USA (no address or phone available) Then they claimed phone circuit issue no phone lines available....... said they "warehouse" all over the world and the productis out of stock in USA so they ship from their other whs (yeah they said this) guess we are supposed to believ they ship it from here to china so they can pay twice to send it back...... Yes CHINA scares me for sure!

    Gen. George Washington & his Army was starving & freezing at Valley Forge.>>> A Jewish Banker pitched in and fed and clothed the Army.>>>>Mike, every military uniform I wash says --MADE IN CHINA.-- Who are the stupid people that put this country in the position that it was in at the beginning.>>>IF CHINA WERE TO COME ACROSS THE GLOBE TOWARDS ISRAEL OR TOWARDS THE USA-----we could well stand NAKED before the world. >>>> I am concerned about Keystone Pipeline going through the aquafers in our country. (the largest water supplies). Made in China. >>> AND IRAN has been our enemy for some time. THE RUSSIANS have been building electrical power plants that in reality are NUCLEAR WEAPONS and their eyeballs are fastened on Israel.>>The late Shah seemed to be working things in a more positive manner that all of the Islamic Radicals currently.>>> Several Foreign Nations are emptying to our southern neighbors their rapist and murderers and thieves. And if we don't protect our southern border soon, we want be able to. Many of the ranches along the river have been sold out to giant Islamic Estates by this current generation of Texans. I could go on and on and on but the fact is all I can do is Pray. SO LET US PRAY. LOVE AMERICA----One more thought is let us stay away from Communism. ------Love America, Bonnie R. Parvino

    Good for Governor Pete Ricketts from Nebraska for speaking truth and sounding the alarm. I hope many other red states and corporations wake up before its too late and start supporting America. Wouldn't count on blue states or the Democrats as their illegitimate resident of the White House, China Joe and his family our bought and paid for by China. But red states and corporations have a chance to look out for Americas best interest which isn't doing business with China. President Trump was right about China like he was right about Democrats, MSM and the deep state swamp, etc. MAGA !!

    Quote from article: "He says they have a long-range plan of dominance while too many American politicians and corporations only care about short-term gains." This has been China's plan for DECADES. It has been American companies' greed-powered short-sightedness for decades. China/CCP is getting closer to their goal, while American corporations are assisting them, and our country is being run into the ground with Biden and Leftist politics. If the USA doesn't wake up for real, instead of "being woke", our country could soon be no more.

    I think we have known for a long time that the
    Chinese government cannot be trusted with anything. I have toured
    China and seen the huge difference between the very wealthy and the majority that are poor farmers. The people still live very third world in the villages, without internal plumbing or kitchens anywhere near what we have in the .west. Even the well to do must pay a million for a two bedroom, one bath apartment in
    Beijing. To have a Western style toilet is a sign of having arrived. The villages still use a central a water pump, underground outdoor toilets, and communal showers. They do have electricity, TVs and refrigerators for the most part. As to the health care, many cannot afford the government health care insurance rates. Many apartment buildings are 6-8 story walk ups. They do value education and kids get good ones. Better than ours. They wear uniforms like most of the world. Keeps the eye on learning and not some highschool girl’s cleavage and thighs. They sink money into parks and recreation promoting fitness. You see very few overweight young people, or adults for that matter.

    I have had a bit of a turnaround. Instead of being angry at me liberal friends , I am laughing internally and at the same time feeling sorry for them in that they are classical examples of ignorance and brainwashing. They are finding it difficult to defend the things going on but usually just fall back on “it’s Trumps fault”. Even the condo collapse was his fault for not addressing global warming fast enough. These people live in some kind of a fantasy world that sees only their truth, not THE TRUTH.

    One must always be careful of polls. A lot depends on how the question is asked and the population queried.

    Since Biden was inserted into the oval office China has become blatant in regard to selling it's knockoffs of American products. Previously they refrained to re-branding US designed products. They are now openly selling forged carbon copies packaged identically to the original US brand but shipped direct from China (As opposed to going through official US distribution systems. These are probably coming directly from the factories contracted to manufacture the genuine product.

    I highly suggest contacting any company that one may suspect is getting ripped off by the Chinese to alert them of possible wrong doing. That may at least start opening naive corporate eyes.

    Hurrah, somebody has finally realized what China is all about. How about they pay the USA for causing the pandenmic.

    Hi Mike
    I have thought for a long time that China is the 21st Century Babylonia. All the Demoncrats care about is $$$$$ in their own pockets.
    I am sure our founding fathers are turning over in their graves!!!
    God bless you Mike!
