American policymakers continue their delusional bid to control the world, exhibiting a scale of denial that would make Hitler’s belief in Germany’s possible victory during his final days in the bunker appear to be totally reasonable.

The most recent foray into delusion includes the recent executive order passed by the White House putting an effective ban on Huawei’s entry into the US and slashing American business relations with the telecommunications giant.

The executive order declares a state of emergency due to the “unacceptable risk posed to American interests” by the fact that China’s intelligence agencies apparently control Huawei and are spying on and sabotaging America.

Five Eyes/Deep State

The forces that have led this McCarthyite attack on China over the years are directly tied to the deep state structures that controlled the Obama presidency and began this attack on the potential cooperative platform of US-China scientific partnership in earnest with the 2011 banning of China’s involvement with NASA.

This act, which led to China’s elimination from the International Space Station (ISS), forced an incredible leap to technological self-sufficiency when China created its own space station (Heavenly Palace) and ambitious Chang-e space program that has quickly made it a world leader in space tech.

By 2024, as the ageing ISS is retired, China will be the only country with a functional space station, which has already caused Western nations to come crawling on their knees begging to join.

Not having learned their lesson, America’s deep state has continued down this path.

It is ironic that cannot be ignored that many forces representing a nationalist renewal in America, including Trump himself, have broken from the anti-China/anti-Russia line at various moments, calling for greater cooperation and mutual development.

Speaking to the Council on Foreign Relations (London’s Round Table Movement in America), FBI director Christopher Wray championed the ban on Huawei last month, saying,

“No country poses a broader, more severe intelligence-collection threat than China. They’re doing it through Chinese intelligence services, through state-owned enterprises, through ostensibly private companies, through graduate students and researchers, through a variety of actors all working on behalf of China.”

Wray’s attack echoed those of former FBI counter-intelligence director Bill Priestap in December 2018. He told the US Congress that “China is the most severe counter-intelligence threat facing the United States today. Every rock we turn over, every time we look for it, it’s not only there, but it’s also worse than we anticipated.”

Priestap has been directly tied to the anti-Trump Russia-gate attack launched by the Five Eyes and special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

China’s Response

Huawei responded to this self-destructive turn of events by citing the fact that one-third of the company’s suppliers are American, which will do grave damage to the US itself.

Their statement said, “It will do significant harm to the American companies with which Huawei does business, affect tens of thousands of American jobs and disrupt the current collaboration and mutual trust that exist on the global supply chain.”

The statement continued to point out that America will now force the USA to fall behind in the transition to 5G, which Huawei is the undisputed world leader and will subject their population to “inferior and more expensive technology.”

Getting more to the geopolitical heart of the ban, Huawei chairman Guo Ping, speaking at the World Mobile Conference in Barcelona in February, titled his speech,

“PRISM PRISM on the wall, who is the most trustworthy of them all?  If you don’t understand that go ask Edward Snowden.”
