Pompeo Is Sounding The Alarm Over One Of The Biggest Enemies Of Free Speech: China

(Liberty Bell) – While he’s rarely given credit for it, President Donald Trump’s attitude towards China, a country that openly seeks global dominance and to undermine American policy and our economy wherever possible, is a breath of fresh air.

On Friday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned America’s governors that communist China is attempting to influence American foreignand economic policy matters, explaining that Beijing is trying to suppress free speech in our country.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned America’s governors about China’s attempt to influence them in foreign and economic policy matters, saying the Communist government is attempting to shape U.S. policy by suppressing free speech and assessing how friendly each governor is to it.

Speaking at the National Governors Association meeting in Washington on Friday, Pompeo said the Chinese government has assessed every single governor on their attitude towards China with the labels “friendy, hard-line, or ambiguous.”

“They’ve labeled each of you friendly, hardline or ambiguous,” he said, citing a report by a Chinese-backed think tank. “I’ll let you decide where you think you belong. Someone in China already has. Many of you indeed, in the report are referenced by name.”

Pompeo explained how China pressures U.S. diplomats to bend to their will on foreign policy, describing an example of a Chinese diplomat demanded a U.S. elected official not acknowledge Taiwan as an independent nation, or even communicate with them.

“You have a diplomat from China assigned here to the United States – a representative of the Chinese Communist Party, in New York City – sending an official letter urging that an American elected official shouldn’t exercise his right to freedom of speech,” Pompeo said. “Let that sink in for a minute.”

“So here’s the lesson. The lesson is the competition with China is not just a federal issue,” Pompeo said. “It’s happening in your states with consequences for our foreign policy, for the citizens who reside in your states and indeed for each of you.”

“And, in fact, whether you are viewed by the [Communist Party of China] as friendly or hardline, know that it’s working you, know that it’s working the team around you. Competition with China is happening inside of your state, and it affects our capacity to perform America’s vital national security functions.”

“You get curveballs every day from all across the place,” Pompeo added. “But don’t lose sight of the competition with China that’s already present in your state. Let’s all rise to the occasion and protect our security, our continent, and all that we hold dear, all of our freedoms.”

  1. Robert Needs To Take His Cold Chocolate , Can’t Have Hot Or Warm Cause He Might Burn His WIDDLE Self , And Go Back To His SAFE SPACE And Get Back To His Coloring Books With His Non-Toxic Crayons !!! P.S. Can’t Have Cupcakes , Cause He Would Be Eating Himself !!!

  2. Robert:
    First, Radar did NOT orginate in the UK.
    – Germany: “Heinrich Hertz in the late 19th century that showed that radio waves were reflected by metallic objects”
    – America: ” In August 1917 Nikola Tesla outlined a concept for primitive radar-like units. He stated:”…by their [standing electromagnetic short waves] use we may produce at will, from a sending station, an electrical effect in any particular region of the globe; [with which] we may determine the relative position or course of a moving object, such as a vessel at sea, the distance traversed by the same, or its speed”. ”
    – UK: “In 1935, Robert Watson-Watt – a Scottish physicist – was asked by the Air Ministry to investigate the possibility of creating a “death-ray” weapon using radio waves….. but did not create a “death-ray” weapon but he did find that his radio transmitters could create an echo from an aeroplane that was over 200 miles away.
    – America: SO “Everyone has heard of RADAR, but few people know that the men who built the first primitive RADAR units in 1934 were following principals, mainly regarding frequency and power level, that were first established by Tesla in 1917. ”
    ……….. Get your facts straight Robert.
    ……………………………….
    – … And WTH is ‘German Industrial Machine’? Again, no facts.
    ……………………………….
    – Strictly speaking, you are correct “Nationalism does not work.”
    However:
    believing in your own country as in ‘Allegiance’ and ‘Hard Work’ pays off.
    .. NOTHING IS FREE and THAT is where you will found. Right where you fell.
    The rest of us hard-working AMERICANS will go on to greater thing.
    Protect your borders… ROBERT, they are coming for you.
    Globalism IS just another way to remove OUR FREEDOMS that have been
    bought and paid for with the blood, sweat and tears of OUR ancestors.
    The Chinese Comrades are NOT your friends. They have no friends.
    Ask the people of China. They yearn for YOUR freedom.
    Get with program.

  3. Mike Pompeo is doing his job when he warns the governors of Communist China’s intentions. Communism is a creeping and insidious disease. Once it takes hold the individual is an individual with no rights. Those on the top hierarchy decides what is good for all and this could preclude them if they do not benefit by it. It is a haven for corruption and oppression. Any one who thinks that Communism is good for the people and especially those who have known freedom is crazy.

  4. Robert. The nazi-commie stooge. Your claims are all assbackwards.
    It has been proven that global iui small as international socialism has succeeded on the sabotage & wasting of wealth built up by nations in all times. No socialist system nazi or commie has lasted longer than it took to wipe out that nation’s wealth & destroy it totally while mass murdering the population. Only by draining US resources under Democraps & compliant RINO traitors has China or Russia succeeded at anything.
    Hillary et-al colluded & made losing deals with Russia. Trump never did except in the minds of traitor leftists like you.

  5. Pompeo Is saying exactly what Russia has been trying to do for over 50 years and with Trump in there the they have accomplished a lot of it in just three years, now Pompeo must turn the light on China so that the Russia friendly Trump Organization can keep on doing the damage they have done to the reputation of this USA. Trump wants that Trump Towers in Moscow so bad he would sell this country down the drain in am inute to gain more wealth.

  6. Fellows there is no sense arguing with an idiot! His ‘infantile mind” is locked in! He is incapable of listening to facts or reason! Might be perhaps he is one of those Chinese “plants” like that proffeser that they caught sending all those secrets back to china so they could develop stealth technology and their rockets and all the other crap they couldn’t figure out themselves!

  7. China not only wants to steal our technology and industry, they have infiltrated our schools, our government and are trying to undermine the culture of our country. They want global domination and as long as we are a free nation with a strong military and the population of this country are armed and ready to fight any kind of an invasion whether it be from China or the left, China will not be able to fulfill its agenda. They won’t drop nukes on us because the land would be unusable. So how to best take down a country but to infiltrate and take it down from within. Which is what the deep state has been trying to do. Look at the collusion between Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Mitch McConnell, and Diane Feinstein and China. They have been selling us out.

  8. The power of we the people is stronger than the people in power.
    Never Again Except the government infringing upon our freedom and or our rights, as necessary or justified…understand that there are no other rights if you cant defend them and that the 2nd amendment was written into the constitution for that reason.
    understand that as american citizens we dont need more cameras pointed at us but rather we need more cameras and voice recorders pointed at the politicians.
    man is never free unless the government is limited and we must be able to defend ourselves against those who would gladly sell us all out…liberals,socialists, commies etc.

    • Look around People are being brainwashed socially engineered. Pubic schools have been working on indoctrinating our children for years. Millennials have all been quite indoctrinated. College surveys show they are in favor of limiting free speech. The Democrats want a socialist government. Look at what is going on right now with AOC, Bernie, all the current democratic candidates.

    • Well we better stop that liberal boot licking governor in Virginia before you get to far a head of yourself. He’s going to try to take there guns come hell or high water. So are you just going to set around and say power to the people or are we going to really do something about this BS????

  9. Robert:

    So Globalism is the answer? It has made the USA great? It has been such a great benefit to us? Well, let’s start with the United Nations. Is that global enough for you? Since the beginning of the time the USA has participated in this global alliance we have been lied to, back-stabbed, ended up paying not just our share of membership dues but most of every other country’s dues too, and then had to put up with them working against everything ee tried to do plus trash-talk about us continually. Just how has any of that made us/USA great? We have had to fight hard to get our freedom and every thing else that we have. All others would take it away. President Trump refuses to let them do it! Thank God for Trump. Enough is enough!

  10. You can bet your bottom dollar, Robert did not earn his living working in one of our former great industries that have been captured by low wage slave labor foreign companies, such as the state owned companies in China.. He calls it competition? Radar was PERFECTED by the US during WW2. Both the US and the UK had been working independently on the concept and had primitive workable units when the war broke out. Same for TV. which idea and then stolen by Japan.
    I wonder if Robert has a cure for the rise of international terrorism which has developed under the concept of Globalism. Free trade label has been used by those supporters of
    Globalism. Free trade is not FAIR TRADE.
    Columbus stumbled on the western hemisphere, it had already been discovered by others. He was looking for the than mysterious route to the Eastern countries.
    Robert said it has been proven that Nationalism does not work. He gives no back up for this wild statement.
    I doubt Robert is a natural born US citizen. He probably has never had a Civic lesson showing how our country was born and developed. If he did, he probably wouldn’t be shilling for those countries trying to destroy our ability to be independent of the need to
    kiss the rings of foreign dictators and those nations with long histories which have lost their creative abilities and survive by stealing ours.

    • Many US colleges have partnerships with Chinese companies which are ultimately controlled by the Chinese Communist Party controlled Chinese government. This allows students to be used as spies involved in industrial espionage. Much easier to steal ideas / products than inventing them yourself. The Japanese were doing this before Nixon brought China out of “dark ages”. Every college should be monitored for their connections to China.

    • AMERICANS WE HAVE TO TAKE BACK OUR AMERICA FROM THE EVIL CRIMINAL ACTS OF DEMOCRATS………………………..TO SOLVE AMERICAS PROBLEMS MAKE THIS CHOICE WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES, TO VOTE OUT THE ENTIRE LYING,CORRUPT, TREASONOUS DEMOCRAT PARTY COME NOV 2020, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTIONS IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT

  11. From Google:
    Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a state in East Asia. Neighbouring states include the People’s Republic of China to the north-west, Japan to the north-east, and the Philippines to the south.Wikipedia

  12. Robert,
    So it’s hatred to want to favor your own country now? It’s wrong to want your elected leaders to make decisions they know will benefit your own people? You might want to check and see what “globalism” really is. It’s the authoritarianism of a one world government while nationalism is nations working together on common problems. Do you really want all your choices in life determined, not by your own people and your own elected leaders but by some faceless, uncaring, indifferent bureaucrat who only thinks about how they can run your life for you? Ask the UK how that worked out for them. The orders came down from Brussels that they had to follow or else. Is that what you want for America? Then please move over there where globalism reigns and leave us alone to make our decision for ourselves. We’re having enough problems with the Democrats who want to make every decision for us instead of letting us decide for ourselves. Why would we want another country to make our decisions? The last Globalist was Hitler and Hirohito, how did that work out for the world? Not so well.

  13. So Robert, let me get this straight, because there are other countries that also try to undermine our, economy, our elections and various other freedoms, that makes it all ok? Just business as usual? Please name some of the “thousands” of examples you refer to. Obama touted Globalism and that resulted in international mea culpa tours apologizing for America and it’s “transgressions”. We all know how that ended up. A stagnant economy and loss of respect for America all over the world. Yes we need to be a part of the world community but that is best done from a position of strength and belief in core values. We may not be perfect but I will never apologize for wanting to put American interests first.

  14. Do you have a problem with his stance? From my understanding of his statement is how each state representative fells about our national government direction and how each state representative either supports it or not and if China might be able to utilize that representative to their advantage. Also many of America’s advancements were from people who defected here and they helped guide our advancements and not under direst.

  15. Now when Pompeo, spreads his hate for any country which puts competition against companies in the USA, most countries are and have been doing the same including the USA, for centuries, that is exactly how the Corporations in the USA stole both Television and Radar technology from the UK. the same was true with German Industrial machinery, bought one and reverse engineered it. China industry is no different from USA industry always trying to steal other ideas so that they can make more money. There are thousands of examples of property ideas founded in another country and in no mincing of words stolen by US companies. Pompeo just is a hard noses nationalist when for centuries it has been proven Nationalism does not work,it is Globalism which has made the World a better place and the USA the Great Country it is, just remember Columbus was looking for another trade route when he discovered what is now America, the same is true with other discoveries by other explorers.

    • Who is paying you?
      Globalists are the ones who create havoc in the world. they are the ones who look to profit from low wages. after China they go to vietnam. after vietnam they go to thayland. etc.. etc. etc..

    • Robert, did you eat some bad fortune cookies? Well just take an asperin and go to bed and maybe you will have more brain cells in the morning.
      If not, don’t get out of bed until you do. I believe that you will have a loooog bed stay!!!
