China's USA Franchise

The "election" of Biden and his ascendancy to office, creates a new world order that is nothing like the New World Order envisioned by John D. Rockefeller and the former US Establishment.

A Biden Presidency, supported by a Chinese-directed complex of media resources effectively compliant with Chinese directives, including the NBA for hell's sake, means that Americans are going to be governed by authoritarian imperatives, edicts, mandates, orders and such, in every aspect of life.i

Supporters of "MAGA" or "Trumpism" will be socially ostracized not only in this forum, but elsewhere, probably more effectively.

Well that is essentially what millions of Americans believe.

Prove me wrong.

The CFR, deeply involved in the program to elevate China, has recent articles on how to cope with China's rise. Of course they have always believed China is a paoper tiger, or at least a tame tiger, or hopefully a well-trained tiger. But Xi, like Marcos, has got the itch. He is a serious sociopath, hell-bent on turning the tables for real.

Bit here's a pathetic little article about the military/technical nexus.

Can China’s Military Win the Tech War? | Foreign Affairs

The article claims that the Chinese are culturally and autocratically limited and cannot innovate the way Americans can and do. Hence, the stealing and crap. But I take no comfort in this when our research institutions are now even worse than China's for authoritarian and regulatory dependencies.

I also fear the breakdown of our institutions due to corruption and far-left political strategies.

But China is dependent on the US economically, and our disintegration will limit China too. Nobody knows how all this will shake out.

Our NY Times is 20% jowned by a Mexican who made his millions working with China facilitating trade around US restrictions, ;helping to weaken US industries.

Every US media major has that kind of influence. Every major investor in mainstream Media is in some way compromised by Chinese connections or financial influence.

This is what globalism does to national sovereignty, worldwide.

It creates global fascism, whatever the poliical flag it's flying for public cover.

It’s kinda weird that Trumpers are making China out to be some enemy. If doing business in China is bad then...


I’m fine talking about how they steal intelligence from our companies or manipulate currency. But it just feels like a bad faith argument when Trumpers attempt to criticize Hunter Biden for some alleged vague and obscure business dealings when it has been confirmed for years that the Donald Trump crime syndicate has been doing business with the Chinese. Ivanka has clearly exploited her connections with the White House to enrich herself.

It’s weird and it honestly just shows how stupid sheep you Trumpers are.

I feel bad for folks like babe. So much to be afraid of. Chinese franchises now apparently in addition to BLM, socialism, marxism, the left, the libs, the dems, 5g, bill gates, soros, tom hanks, oprah, the deep state, vaccines, masks, voting machines, mail in ballots, satanic child eating cabals, immigrants, chemtrails, confederate monuments being taken down, better healthcare, the media....... the list goes on and on.
Man that would suck to be so afraid all the time.

I guess here is as good a place as any to post this, but Daryl Morey was fined $50k for a tweet about Harden:


Silver probably had a big itch to be able to slap a fine on him as retaliation, but was waiting to launder the rationale.

I honestly thought this was going to be a thread about the Houston Rockets.
I like the Rockets, and Houston area specifically. Harris family.

But I think that's the last team that would sell out to the Chinese.

Rumor has it that the Jazz might be the first.

It's a gift to China to even apply for a patent. No record of China respecting patent rights, even when issued from their own shop.

So here, let me put it in as a brief summary.

The decades-long effort on the part of Chinese leaders, CCP or otherwise, to buy into America, whether business or political franchise....... is doomed.

just another "Bridge Too Far".

My reasons are proprietary. I'm putting money down on it.

His concerns are not unsubstantiated. He's just very vocal on these subjects.

Houston is probably the most popular team in China due to Yao Ming. I'm not talking about anyone selling out. China is certainly a primary adversary to the U.S., along with Russia, but neither of them are our "enemies" and I have no ill will towards them or their people.

I never start out with ill will or stupid prejudice or even nationalism. In my mind the dichotomy is Big Guv vx. Ordinary Folks. Any trend to give people actually more opportunity is always an economic boom.

The stuff of Big Bird and PBS is qualitatively no different from unabashed propaganda for any local tyrant, imho. Trains the human mind to powerless somnolescence like old Joe.

This is probably about the most appropriate response to a babe post that I have ever seen.

I dunno why I'm not surprised you love Big Bird. I knew a guy from Macao who was as tall as Yao. I don't think that's any kind of local tribe of giants, but I wouldn't be surprised if Yao harbors nationalist love.

Hopefully
I dunno really, but aren't you socially/culturally immersed in SE Utah/NE AZ/ NW NM Navajo/Ute/Hopi/etc native American/White minority issues?

So here's the thing. Socialism is nothing new at all. Ever since Kit Carson and John Wesley Powell and the US Army moved people into the reservations and took over all aspects of their lives.

In a broad sense, the rest of us are now being rounded up and moved into the Urban Corrals, with Biden/Obama visions of taking over local zoning power for the Federal Gov. Incremental socialism has now been turbocharged and will go the limit, balls to the walls.

The people who voted for Trump didn't vote for him because he was a constitutional scholar or ideologue. A lot of people voted for him expressly because he was not part of that big vision. The crowds came out for him because he wasn't already "owned" that they could see.

The social pressure to conform to the Biden camp vision is intolerance for most Americans who have somehow believed they were still free, that their votes matter, and that they can reasonably go about their business and prosper under fair laws.

Your "hopefully" sentiment here, and those who are like-minded, are actually believing you have something better.

Socialism is what creates zones of poverty and lack of opportunity like the reservations.

So Game didn't like this take of it. More like killing the opposition with kindness, masking a darker sort of snicker perhaps. Gotta figure the angles better.
