Shush! Don't tell the #Resistance or these three Dems are in serious trouble for cooperating with fellow Americans who don't tow their party line.

Wolfpack: so much paranoia. China has been stealing secrets, copy technologies for a while now.

A senior Chinese official said on Monday there was no link between North Korea's nuclear program and China-U.S. trade.

The United States needs to make China understand that there IS a link. And unless China recognizes this the probability of war on the Korean Peninsula will just keep increasing as North Korea continues on it's current path. Of course this is a bipartisan issue the security of the United States is at risk.

Tech companies are GIVING their IP to China by playing ball.

Apple has decided that being in China is more important than having their customers access to privacy allowing technologies.

MSFT has been putting "research centers" in China to appease the govt there.

High speed rail and other large industrial companies have been transferring their knowledge to China for decades.

China has a pattern. They have been following it.

They buy 1 version with the technology.

They demand their companies/people be trained on how it works and how to maintain it.

5 yrs later, a Chinese company is competing world-wide using the same technology and no further contracts are awarded to outside players again.

And of course, the Chinese govt has added mandatory spying to everything. It has gotten so bad that BLU, a cell phone maker, has been banned from selling their phones on Amazon in the USA. This was over added spying hardware and software included in the phone models that reported back everything to servers in China. https://www.cnet.com/news/amazon-suspends-sales-of-blu-phones-due-to-privacy-concerns/

It's insane how much corporations and governments are selling out decades of research & development worth hundreds of billions of dollars for almost nothing while people are obsessed with childish partisan blood libel accusations. 

The Chinese dictatorship is playing the free world like smooth criminals.

The US Congress can't rein in Crazy Trump, but we expect the Chinese to rein in Crazy Kim Jong Un?

LOL, same to you bud.  This for once isn't about partisanship, and a lot more Dems had better get behind it.   But we know both party's have been guilty of following the money that lines their campaign (and personal) pockets.

China has a pattern. They have been following it.

It's the same pattern the US did to Britain. Same pattern Japan did to US. Same pattern S. Korea did to Japan.

With one enormous difference. China is an authoritarian dictatorship with aspirations of military and territorial expansion and a declared intent to re-write the post WWII world order. They have openly declared an all-fronts war in which economics, trade, technology transfers, everything is all part of advancing their goal of returning China to it's ancient glory of thousands of years ago.

Doubt it. The US wasn't all that nice too when it was doing the same to Britain. Slavery, discrimination (of blacks, browns, yellows, etc), genocide (Native Americans) happened. Took quite a long while for these wrongs to be righted. It also had the Monroe Doctrine.
