Foreign Influence: Chinese Spies in New York, The Communist Party Allegedly Censored Mike Pence, Promoted Kamala Harris, Why it’s important to know
A report was made by an independent journalist last week, during the first and only Vice Presidential Debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Democrat candidate for Vice President, Kamala Harris, that the Chinese Community Party had censored Pence and promoted Harris, which happens at the same time the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned us about Chinese Spies and Propaganda.
A deeper dive into these issues exposes how the Trump administration is working to protect America from numerous points of danger with China, Iran, and Russia, and why the Biden-Harris Ticket might be preferred.
“China censored Pence’s comments on China,” Canada’s Globe and Mail Beijing Correspondent Nathan VanderKlippe, an Independent journalist reported. “Signal returned when Harris began talking again.”
Tristan Justice for The Federalist reported, “The censorship comes a month after reporting from the U.S. intelligence community accused China and Iran of attempting to undermine the incumbent president’s re-election chances in hopes of a Joe Biden presidency. The Russians, on the other hand, are attempting to “denigrate former Vice President Biden and what it sees as an anti-Russia ‘establishment.’”
“Ahead of the 2020 U.S. elections, foreign states will continue to use covert and overt influence measures in their attempts to sway U.S. voters’ preferences and perspectives, shift U.S. policies, increase discord in the United States, and undermine the American people’s confidence in our democratic process,” said National Counterintelligence and Security Center Director William Evanina in August. “They may also seek to compromise our election infrastructure for a range of possible purposes, such as interfering with the voting process, stealing sensitive data, or calling into question the validity of the election results. However, it would be difficult for our adversaries to interfere with or manipulate voting results at scale.”
THE NEW YORK POST REPORTED ON CHINESE PROPAGANDA:
China’s New York consulate is being used as a major hub for the Communist nation’s US espionage efforts, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told The Post after an NYPD cop was arrested and charged with spying for the Chinese government.
And it’s likely more agents will be arrested by the Department of Justice, Pompeo told the paper in a sit-down Wednesday.
“They’re engaged in activities where they’re crossing the line from normal diplomacy to the kinds of things that would be more akin to what spies are doing,” Pompeo said, when pressed on the goings-on inside the consulate on the West Side Highway.
Pompeo’s remarks follow the arrest last week of an NYPD officer charged with serving as a secret agent for the Chinese government — a charge China has denied — and the US government’s decision to shut down the Chinese consulate in Houston in July, after two military assets there were charged with trying to steal COVID-19 vaccine research.
“We closed it because they’re engaged in espionage and that is a legal term. It’s not just a spy novel term. It is a very data-driven, analytic, fact-based analysis that says, ‘No, this is espionage, it’s unlawful, and therefore, we’re going to send you back,’” he said on the flight back from Wisconsin on Wednesday.
PENCE SAID JOE BIDEN WAS A CHEERLEADER FOR CHINA- JUST THE NEWS
“China and the World Health Organization did not play straight with the American people. They did not let our personnel into China to get information on the Coronavirus until the middle of February.” Pence said. “Fortunately, President Trump in dealing with China from the outset of this administration, standing up to China that had been taking advantage of America for decades in the wake of Joe Biden’s cheerleading for China.”

A powerful report by independent journalists:
Because Independent Journalists bring us news of how China is propping up war machines:
In 2018, the Trump administration withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal and initiated a “maximum pressure” campaign against the Iranian regime, re-imposing and expanding sanctions targeting Iran’s energy, shipping, insurance, and banking sectors. Major European businesses responded by fleeing Iran. However, the Trump administration’s efforts to isolate Iran still face a major hurdle as China and Russia move to fill the void and capitalize on the business opportunities emerging in the wake of European withdrawals.
The Political Context
The re-imposition of sanctions, coupled with years of economic mismanagement, have compounded the economic stresses facing Iran’s leadership. In late December 2018, President Hassan Rouhani unveiled his proposed $47.5 billion budget for the upcoming year, which, due to the impact of sanctions and the precipitous devaluation of Iran’s currency, was less than half the previous year’s budget. The failure of the JCPOA’s promised benefits to materialize, coupled with widespread political alienation, provided the impetus for a revitalized protest movement that has amplified the pressure facing Iran’s regime.

And it just goes on and on… the Trump administration is hard at work preventing world wars, and the Iran-China Axis is something former President Obama and his administration, including Hillary Clinton, according to her newly released emails made a total mess of.. because she knew in 2009 that Iran and China has a deal.. and
