Communist China Infiltrating Everything
Information indicates that not only is China’s communist regime running an influence campaign in America, it is infiltrating organizations worldwide.
By Alex Newman
It has become popular for conservatives to exclaim, only half-jokingly, that “China owns Biden.” And while it may sound funny to the uninformed, the reality is deadly serious. Unfortunately, Biden is just the tip of the iceberg: At all levels, U.S. officials, businesses, and media outlets are being compromised. In fact, whether the mass-murdering regime in Beijing officially owns Biden or not, it “owns” a growing array of assets among Western politicians, companies, technologies, media outlets, and more, a situation that threatens the survival of America as a free nation.
Even official disclosures reveal an enormous problem, including U.S. politicians being wined and dined by a CCP front. And now, leaked documents, which identify almost two million Communist Chinese Party (CCP) members, have confirmed that even organizations and companies not officially owned by the party are at least packed with members and spies loyal to Beijing. The American media, which would normally be responsible for reporting all this, is being paid off and compromised by Beijing, too, a growing array of documents and evidence reveal.
The new revelations add urgency to recent warnings from U.S. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe. He noted that Beijing poses the “greatest threat to freedom” since World War II and that the murderous regime was seeking to “dominate the planet economically, militarily and technologically.” U.S. lawmakers are being targeted via bribery and blackmail to do the dictatorship’s bidding, he added. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo echoed those warnings. And of course, many key members of the globalist elite in America have been openly aiding and abetting the rise of the CCP for decades, as this magazine has documented.
Taken together, it is becoming more and more clear that the Communist Party of China is now a threat not just to the United States, but to liberty and free peoples worldwide. With help from Deep State globalists across the United States and the broader Western world, Beijing now has agents placed at every level of power. And if not stopped, the “New World Order” often touted by Communist Chinese bigwigs and their allies in the West will remake the planet in the image of the CCP and the barbarous tyranny it oversees. America is the last barrier — and the walls have already been breached.
The latest leak of incriminating information, which occurred in late 2020, revealed that a large number of Chinese Communist Party members have infiltrated Western governments and strategic Western corporations. The infiltration includes many entities with military roles and involvement in COVID-19 vaccines, according to an analysis of the document that identifies almost two million CCP operatives. Megabanks and aerospace contractors are heavily infiltrated by agents as well. The national-security implications for America are enormous.
One of the reasons the scandal is so significant and is causing shock waves worldwide, despite being ignored by the U.S. media, is that all members of the Chinese Communist Party swear allegiance to the party above all else. Among other promises, members pledge to “guard Party secrets, be loyal to the Party, work hard, fight for communism throughout my life … and never betray the Party.” In practice, that means every CCP member is a communist operative first and foremost — and a potential spy.
According to media reports, the list of CCP members was originally leaked on an encrypted instant-messaging app. In September, a Chinese dissident provided the list to the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China (IPAC), a network of lawmakers from around the world seeking to rein in the growing influence of the Chinese dictatorship. So far only a fraction of the list has been publicly released, beginning with copies sent to a handful of Western media outlets such as the Daily Mail. But even what has already been released reveals an enormous threat.
The list, which dates back to 2016, includes the names of about two percent of the party’s estimated total membership, most of them centered around Shanghai. Also included in the data is the ethnicity, dates of birth, and names of members. In some cases, names were associated with official positions, phone numbers, and addresses. And again, only a tiny fraction of the names have been published so far, suggesting this is just the tip of the tip of a deadly iceberg that may well sink the Titanic that is the West.
Government and Defense
The national-security concerns surrounding the leak are enormous. According to analysis of the data, there are hundreds of CCP members who are employed by Boeing, Airbus, and Rolls-Royce, all leading Western companies with extensive ties and contracts with American, British, and other Western militaries and defense establishments. Numerous CCP agents are also working at a major French defense contractor.
And recently, a CCP member boasted of infiltrating the highest echelons of government power in America. Speaking in a leaked video tape about how Beijing was able to enrich itself at America’s expense, Vice Dean of the School of International Relations at Renmin University Di Dongsheng did not mince words: The Communist Chinese regime has operatives working for it “at the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence.”
Indeed, “for the past 30 years, 40 years, we have been utilizing the core power of the United States,” Di added, suggesting business as usual would resume if and when Biden took office. “I’m going to throw out something maybe a little bit explosive here,” the Communist Chinese professor explained. “It’s just because we have people at the top.” He did not give names, but the admission was hardly a surprise to those who follow the threat.
Of course, Communist Chinese control of American political leaders goes back decades, featuring top American officials such as former U.S. President Bill Clinton. As documented in the February 15, 1999 “Chinagate: Treason in the White House” issue of The New American, Clinton even helped the hostile regime access some of the most sensitive American military technology while covering up various crimes for the regime and its agents. Clinton’s collaboration was secured in exchange for massive unlawful campaign contributions.
American military leaders expressed outrage. “President Clinton promised to restrain those who ordered the Tiananmen Square massacre, but he has now allowed these men whose hands are stained with the blood of martyrs of freedom into the highest reaches of our military defenses, and made available to them significant portions of our advanced military technology,” wrote former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Thomas Moorer, one of many military leaders shocked by the treasonous actions.
More recently, Obama repeatedly invited Communist Chinese troops to train with U.S. military forces on American soil. More than a few critics of the policy called it treason, with the regime in Beijing repeatedly indicating its deadly hostility toward the United States, U.S. allies, and individual liberty. Obama’s vice president, president-elect Joe Biden, also has had numerous troubling contacts with the dictatorship.
Biden’s scandal-plagued son, Hunter, even went into “business” with top Communist Chinese intelligence chiefs and operatives, as revealed in materials seized from his laptop and released by whistleblowers. According to multiple experts, including investigative author Peter Schwei-zer, the troubled son of the former vice president played a major role “in Chinese efforts to acquire western technology,” helping the Chinese get approval to purchase key U.S. tech. Millions were funneled from the CCP to Biden’s “companies” such as “SinoHawk.”
Joe Biden, described as “The Big Guy” in a leaked e-mail, was a leading beneficiary of the treasonous corruption, documents and whistleblowers such as former Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski revealed. (See article on page 21.) Of course, the only reason any foreign powers, including Beijing, might be interested in the drug-abusing pervert Hunter Biden was his relationship to his father. Minor girls who appeared on videos pulled from Biden’s laptop were likely provided by CCP operatives for “leverage,” leaked photos revealed. Why else would the ChiComs give him underage girls to have sex with? Again, this is just scratching the surface.
Biden VP pick Kamala Harris’ husband also has lucrative ties to the Communist Chinese. Among other concerns, Harris’ husband works at international law firm DLA Piper, which has several CCP-owned “companies” as clients and employs “former” CCP officials. Harris and many of her key boosters also have numerous connections to Maoist and Marxist revolutionary organizations, according to prominent anti-communist researcher Trevor Lou-don.
The regime has also been recruiting some of America’s top political power players and dynasties to help do its dirty work in D.C. CCP fronts and “companies” funneled millions into the Clinton Foundation, for example, obviously in exchange for political favors. A member of the Bush dynasty, Neil Bush, was also on the CCP payroll, receiving millions through a CCP company. Numerous former Clinton and Bush officials are now working for Beijing and its companies as well.
Congress and Beyond
More revelations surface on a regular basis. In recent weeks, myriad scandals linking senior U.S. government officials and Communist Chinese operatives have erupted. For instance, online news agency Axios released its findings after a year-long investigation about a Communist Chinese spy who developed very close relationships with top-level American politicians. Among the targets: Congressman Eric Swalwell, a member of the House Intelligence Committee who ousted an incumbent with help and money from CCP spy Christine Fang.
The same operative compromised other American politicians, too. “Through campaign fundraising, extensive networking, personal charisma, and romantic or sexual relationships with at least two Midwestern mayors, Fang was able to gain proximity to political power,” reported Axios, citing current and former U.S. intelligence officials and a former elected official. Pictures of American politicians at all levels posing with Communist Chinese operatives are surfacing nationwide, too.
Officially, at least, Republicans in Congress are expressing concern and trying to look busy in the face of this crisis. GOP members of the House Oversight and Reform Committee led by ranking member Representative James Comer (R-Ky.) even wrote a letter to FBI boss Christopher Wray asking the agency to put together a briefing for lawmakers and staff about Communist Chinese targeting of American politicians.
“Depending on the total number of active CCP operatives and the breadth of the [Ministry of State Security] operation across our country, any number of elected officials could potentially be compromised without even knowing it,” the letter from Republicans to the FBI chief said, making reference to Swalwell’s case. “Going forward, understanding the scope of the CCP’s whole operation is critical to combating and preventing any future attempts to undermine our U.S. government institutions…. We must ensure Members of Congress remain uncompromised from the attempts of our adversaries to plunder classified intelligence and influence American leadership.”
Even more recently, Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) filings revealed that top U.S. politicians from both parties were being flown to Beijing by the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) to be wined and dined. The “foundation” in question was founded by the vice-chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), which U.S. authorities have identified as a critical part of the CCP’s “United Work Front.”
The department is a crucial branch handling the regime’s overseas influence operations. The U.S. government’s U.S.-China Security and Economic Review Commission (USCSERC) noted in an official report that the CCP uses it “to co-opt and neutralize sources of potential opposition to the policies and authority of its ruling Chinese Communist Party.” As such, they often target political leaders, opinion molders, and other influential individuals.
Using United Front — also called the United Work Front — the CCP selects a wide range of targets for manipulation, especially those in a position to support or oppose its objectives. “The United Front strategy uses a range of methods to influence overseas Chinese communities, foreign governments, and other actors to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies,” the 2018 U.S. government report on China’s Overseas United Front Work continues.
Through the lobbying and PR firm BLJ Worldwide, CUSEF was taking American politicians on luxurious trips to China to meet senior officials and enjoy the good life. The list of politicians who have made the trek includes congressmen, senators, governors, mayors, and prominent state lawmakers from both parties. Reports created by these politicians were then distributed to other political leaders and opinion molders, the FARA filings revealed. The New American previously reported some of this in 2018.
Some of those politicians have been key figures in the anti-Trump hysteria of the establishment. For instance, former GOP Congresswoman Constance Morella, who took a CUSEF-funded trip to meet key Communist Chinese officials involved in military and intelligence, also served as a leader of “Republicans for Biden,” even headlining fundraising events for the Democratic candidate. Before that, she backed Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“Talk about an elephant in a China shop,” quipped The New American’s Luis Miguel in an article about it. Morella’s delegation met with, among others, the chairman of the CCP’s Foreign Affairs Committee. They also met the leader of the China Association for International Friendly Contact (CAIFC), which, according to the U.S.-China Security and Economic Review Commission, serves as “a platform for deploying undercover intelligence gatherers.”
Even Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is indirectly tied to the CCP through his wife, Elaine Chao. Chao, a member of the globalist China-boosting group known as the Council on Foreign Relations, comes from a family that made its fortune in shipping through close ties to the CCP dating back decades, multiple news reports have revealed.
As this writer reported in The New American online on August 7, 2018, the CCP’s battery of lobbyists includes ex-House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, another Republican. “Nobody in the 1980s would have represented the Russian government,” fumed former U.S. Representative Frank Wolf (R-Va.), who served as co-chair of the bipartisan “Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission.” “And now you find so many lobbying for the Chinese government. I served in Congress for 34 years. I find it shocking.”
Beyond the two major parties, Communist Party USA chief John Bachtell also has an open and very cozy relationship with the butchers in Beijing. In 2018, he even went over to China for a visit and speech, promising that Communist Chinese-style “democracy” would emerge victorious in the glorious “New World Order” being created by the CCP.
It is hardly just the United States. For the British, the recent leak of CCP members from Shanghai also contained urgent wake-up calls. For instance, a senior official at the British Consulate in Shanghai, which is home to intelligence officers from the U.K. security services, was exposed as a CCP member. Over 600 CCP members on the list are working at British banks HSBC and Standard Chartered, potentially giving the regime access to extremely sensitive personal financial data on people around the world and dissidents in China.
And the massive leak comes shortly after government documents showed far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invited Communist Chinese troops to Canada for highly sensitive military training. The top-secret documents, first obtained and exposed by Rebel News, show that the radical Canadian leader wanted to offer training to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in Ontario even after the regime infamously kidnapped two Canadian citizens to use as bargaining chips.
At the United Nations, as this magazine has been exposing for many years, Beijing is practically in charge. Out of 15 specialized UN agencies, Communist Chinese members head up four, with sympathizers running even more. By contrast, an American runs one mostly insignificant UN agency, even though U.S. taxpayers are by far the largest financiers of the UN.
At least one senior former official in the Donald Trump administration, former Assistant U.S. Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs Kevin Moley, told The Epoch Times that this ongoing takeover of the UN represents “the greatest existential threat to our republic since our founding.” “This is the fight of our lives,” he added. “It is a struggle between Western civilization and the Communist Party of China.”
Fake “News” Media
For those wondering why the media has almost completely failed to report the facts listed so far, there is a simple explanation. It turns out that America’s top propaganda outlets — posing as “news” organizations — are also compromised by the world’s most murderous dictatorship, often using the same tactics used to corrupt politicians and other institutions.
Indeed, official documents reveal that a huge list of left-wing establishment media outlets has ties to the dictatorship. One leading commentator — Natalie Winters with TheNationalPulse.com, who first broke the story — argued that it showed Western media was “compromised.” The outlets involved in the scandal include powerhouses such as CNN, the New York Times, Fox News, the Washington Post, Bloomberg, MSNBC, and many major newspapers across the country.
According to documents obtained by the National Pulse, the CCP-backed China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF), through lobbying firm BLJ Worldwide, has been treating key U.S. media personalities and “journalists” to exclusive private dinners and even trips to Communist China, very similar to the treatment offered to politicians. CUSEF was founded by a key figure in the CCP’s United Work Front, which handles overseas influence operations.
According to 2011 disclosures under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), CUSEF paid BLJ hundreds of thousands of dollars to promote Beijing’s propaganda in America. This included sending journalists and journalism students to China to give them a “positive look at China’s accomplishments.” This was done to supposedly “educate the next generation of U.S. journalists on China and U.S.-China relations while they are still honing their craft,” the public filings revealed.
Another element of the BLJ package for CUSEF included crafting a “short-medium term U.S. campaign to influence key constituencies (politicians, academics, and experts) as well as general public opinion regarding China’s true efforts and intentions in Tibet,” where the regime in Beijing is engaged in what critics refer to as “cultural genocide.” This scheme was supposed to help analyze how “leading United States high-school textbooks” portrayed Tibet and China, then help peddle Beijing’s talking points as recommendations for “countering the tide of public discourse.”
According to CUSEF’s federal disclosures required under U.S. law, the goal of the campaign is to “effectively disseminate positive messages to the media, key influencers and opinion leaders, and the general public” about the Chinese regime. “In order to develop favorable coverage in key national media, BLJ will continue to organize and staff ‘familiarization trips’ to China,” CUSEF added. “This includes recruiting top journalists to travel to China, selected for effectiveness and opportunities for favorable coverage.” It paid off, with the CCP getting its propaganda pushed in dozens of top outlets and hundreds of “news” and opinion pieces across America. Last June, meanwhile, CCP mouthpiece China Daily filed a disclosure with the U.S. Department of Justice admitting that it had paid $19 million to top American “news” organizations. That includes about $12 million to leading newspapers that serve as mouthpieces for the globalist establishment and now Communist China, such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post.
Other newspapers on Beijing’s payroll include the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, Seattle Times, and Houston Chronicle, and Foreign Policy. Among other benefits, the CCP money funded “ads” that look just like news articles promoting CCP propaganda.
The co-opting of Western media is all part of a coordinated strategy by Chinese dictator Xi Jinping. “China needs to strengthen media coverage … and use innovative outreach methods … to tell a good Chinese story and promote China’s views internationally,” Xi said at the National Meeting on Propaganda and Thought Work in August 2013. He has echoed those points repeatedly since then.
Aside from co-opting Western “presstitues,” as Western media have come to be ridiculed by critics for behaving like prostitutes, Beijing also has its own massive propaganda megaphon. Xinhua, an intelligence front masquerading as a news agency, has agents all over the world gathering intelligence and disseminating CCP lies. Whistleblowers have been trying to expose this threat for almost a decade, but of course the CCP-compromised Western media have largely failed to report it.
According to a 2018 Pentagon report, the regime has even been buying up radio stations — including American stations — using subsidiaries to conceal the ownership. “These radio stations broadcast pro-China content but have not registered as agents of a foreign government under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA),” explained the Defense Department report, headlined “Assessment on US Defense Implications of China’s Expanding Global Access.”
What’s the Same, What’s Different
In 2010, The New American magazine again sounded the alarm about Communist Chinese espionage aimed at the United States. CCP spies were already everywhere, infiltrating Western companies, universities, military institutions, governments, and more. From spying on dissidents to stealing technology, the regime and its hordes of agents around the world were vacuuming up everything possible for the benefit of Beijing. In the decade since then, the problem has become exponentially worse. “This fight is inside the gates today,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo explained in a January 8 briefing to U.S. lawmakers.
The threat of Communist Chinese infiltration of America and the West today is enormous, and existential. Would American politicians and newspapers accept money from Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist regime before WWII? If not, why do they sell themselves to the CCP regime, which has murdered over 100 million, not including unborn babies? Top Communist Chinese officials have made clear that they intend to supplant the United States — and even destroy it with nuclear weapons under certain scenarios.
There exists a massive array of powerful organizations in the United States working to build up Communist China — especially its economic and military power. Aside from the Council on Foreign Relations, which has been key, one of the most powerful but obscure is the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, whose leadership reads like a who’s who of pro-Beijing powerhouse figures in the United States. The roster includes former U.S. Secretary of State Henry “New World Order” Kissinger, former U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, and more.
As The New American magazine has been reporting for decades, Deep State globalists in the West were crucial in betraying the people of China into communism, and then building up the regime enslaving them. Today, the Deep State and Beijing are essentially partners in the quest to undermine America and freedom as they pursue what they openly describe as the “New World Order.” Billionaire globalists including such well-known names such as Rockefeller, Soros, Gates, Bloomberg, and more have been instrumental.
If not stopped, the New World Order that globalist elites and Beijing are seeking to build will look a lot like Communist China — and America’s sellout journalists, politicians, and corporations will bear a large part of the blame. It is time for urgent action to deal with the foreign and domestic threats before they prove fatal.
The New American publishes a print magazine twice a month, covering issues such as politics, money, foreign policy, environment, culture, and technology.
