Could this have to do with the red chinese spy chief defector to the DIA??
I don’t know. He could have been a source. One of them has been under investigation for ten years? Wonder why they let him operate that long and what information was passed to his handlers. These folks were probably double and triple agents, who knows?
It’s all a secret…wonder why the news release now? To counter the Biden administration’s “rumored” connection to China?
Now they just have to clean out Biden’s regime connections to Red China; the Senate’s connections; the Congress; the Judicial; and the many other agencies, including the FBI.
A whole lot of red, running through & through Washington.
About time they clean house! [long overdue!]
Washington’s going to be a ghost town…
if they get most of them.
And that just Washington.
The Blue State globalists aren’t far behind.
Let’s Hope the Enforcement side is up to the task!
Operation Fox Hunt’s purpose is to locate and BRING BACK TO CHINA alleged fugitives that have "fled to foreign countries, including the United States. The PRC has a history of targeting political dissidents and critics of the government who have sought relief and refuge in other countries.” Garland said at a Monday press conference.
So, this is about apprehending Chinese who are dissidents of the current regime in China. Garland is simply doing the bidding of his Chinese masters. The so-called ‘dissidents’ in exile, mostly in the West, particularly the United States were, and still are mainly Democracy Wall (1978-79) veterans. Think…these are participants in the Tiananmen Square event (1989). Mostly just student leaders and intellectuals, and other activists at the time. The Chinese first cleaned-out a bunch who fled to Hong Kong where they were eventually rounded-up, and sent to death camps, or worse.
Simply put… “Garland is on the payroll of the Chinese.” Just consider that Garland, the Bidenesse Gang, and the FBI are all on the Chinese ‘payroll’. I know it’s too hard to believe, and a thinking person would like a bit of evidence. OK, start researching for it.
Certain folks made a copy of the files on Hunter Biden’s laptop when he took it in for repair prior to the last election. The laptop contained porn tapes of Hunter sockin’ it to some very young Chinese girls. The Repairman reported it to the FBI, who soon visited him, and demanded he give them the laptop. Well, as is so happened the FBI was only there to cover-up the facts, and when he [the Repairman] legally asserted he did not have possession of the laptop the FBI actually indicted the repairman.
That is why we need some real law ‘Enforcement’, and not the current FBI. Go search for the Hunter Biden Laptop interview with John Paul Mac Isaac [the repairman], and Larry Johnson. Someone posted it here a few months ago — look it up on the Duran Livestream.
Or, go read this,

“ undermine the integrity of our judicial system,” Garland said during the press conference.” see he really does care about justice, though perhaps China’s.
Certainly takes care of the globalist agreements to act as one technocratic totalitarian prison planet.
It’s the Chinese criminals they’re after[the ones seeking a better life; or, fighting against tyranny].
Not those committing treason in the USSA?
So the FBI goes to a Mr. Charlie Chan who works at the DIA and arrests him.
Refusing to spy for Mother China.
Of course, Ridiculous?
But, dig a little here & there; and one may find very deep veins
of globalism - running through & through, the world’s bureaucracies.
I doubt this counts any of the dozens of Chinese men who were escorted by US military thru Bush airport in Houston night before last, according to John Wells. They were all put on same bus with separate truck for luggage. Hmm.
I would think the military intelligence is more USA; than globalist USSA,
FBI, CIA, Vatican, UN, CDC, WHO, and the rest of their ilk.
Not to say there aren’t purity issues w/in those broad brushstrokes.
But, I’d trust the DIA; against most of the other avenues in cleaning house.
You guys really should read a newspaper, occasionally.
Biden Just Clobbered China’s Chip Industry
Semiconductors are among the most intricate tools that human beings have ever invented. They are also among the most expensive to make.
The latest chips — the sort that power supercomputers and high-end smartphones — are densely packed with transistors so small they’re measured in nanometers. Perhaps the only things more ingenious than the chips themselves are the machines that are used to build them. These devices are capable of working on almost unimaginably tiny scales, a fraction of the size of most viruses. Some of the chip-building machines take years to build and cost hundreds of millions of dollars each; the Dutch company ASML, which makes the world’s only lithography machines capable of inscribing designs for the fastest chips, has produced just 140 such devices over the past decade.
Which brings us to another amazing detail about microchips: They are a triumph not just of technology but also of global trade and cooperation. In the recently published “Chip War: The Fight for the World’s Most Critical Technology,” Chris Miller, a history professor at Tufts University, describes the geographic sprawl of the semiconductor supply chain:
A typical chip might be designed with blueprints from the Japanese-owned, U.K.-based company called Arm, by a team of engineers in California and Israel, using design software from the United States. When a design is complete, it’s sent to a facility in Taiwan, which buys ultrapure silicon wafers and specialized gases from Japan. The design is carved into silicon using some of the world’s most precise machinery, which can etch, deposit and measure layers of materials a few atoms thick. These tools are produced primarily by five companies, one Dutch, one Japanese and three Californian, without which advanced chips are basically impossible to make. Then the chip is packaged and tested, often in Southeast Asia, before being sent to China for assembly into a phone or computer.
The fragility of this convoluted process became apparent in last year’s Covid-induced chip shortage, which the White House has estimated cost the United States a full percentage point of economic output, or hundreds of billions of dollars. But there is also something elegant and even comforting about the global diversity of the chip business. As with oil or aircraft carriers or nuclear weapons, the question of who controls the semiconductor industry carries geopolitical significance. Chips are crucial ingredients not just in smartphones and laptops but in just about everything in the modern world — including, importantly, weapons, surveillance technology and artificial intelligence systems. Dominance of the industry in the wrong hands could be disastrous.
That’s why I have been so impressed with the aggressive and creative way the Biden administration has gone about curtailing China’s alarming, decades-long effort to build a domestic semiconductor industry that’s independent from the rest of the world. This month, the Commerce Department announced a set of restrictions that prevent China from getting much of what it needs to establish a commanding position in the chip business. The government said the rules were meant to block “sensitive technologies with military applications” from being acquired by China’s military and security services. With few exceptions, the sanctions prohibit China from buying the best American chips and the machines to build them, and even from hiring Americans to work on them. Analysts I spoke to said the rules will devastate China’s domestic chip industry, potentially setting it back decades.

The rules “are an absolute historical landmark,” said Gregory Allen, a fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and a former director of A.I. strategy at the Department of Defense. In a recent report, Allen writes that Biden’s restrictions “begin a new U.S. policy of actively strangling large segments of the Chinese technology industry — strangling with an intent to kill.” Considering the ways China might use the advanced chips — including in expanding its dystopian, A.I.-powered surveillance and repression regime — the strangulation is justified.
Semiconductors are one of the few sectors for which China still depends on the rest of the world; the country spends more money importing microchips each year than it does oil. The Chinese government has invested billions of dollars to “indigenize” the industry, but its progress has been slow. And in some of the most advanced areas of the business, Chinese semiconductor manufacturers lag far behind their international competitors.
Allen says that until now, most American restrictions on China’s access to the best semiconductors were aimed primarily at the Chinese military. But China’s corporations are closely allied with China’s military, enabling the military to easily evade restrictions. The new policy should make that substantially harder, as its restrictions apply to any entity in China, whether a branch of the military or a theoretically “civilian” corporation.
And the rules don’t bar just China from buying American semiconductor tech. Through the Foreign Direct Product Rule, parts of the regulations apply to any company in the world that uses American semiconductor technology. So if a non-American chip manufacturer agrees to make Chinese-designed chips, it could lose access to American chip-making machines that it can’t get anywhere else.
Finally, there are the restrictions on American personnel. China is desperately short on engineers and executives with expertise in the semiconductor business, and many of its companies in the sector employ Americans in high-ranking positions. The new restrictions prohibit all “U.S. persons” — both American citizens and green card holders — from continuing to work in the Chinese semiconductor industry. (The rules allow people to apply for waivers to the policy.)
How can China respond? One way is by evading the rules. The country has long been masterful at getting around sanctions, and microchips are small and potentially easy to smuggle. It’s also not clear how well the Bureau of Industry and Security, the Commerce Department agency in charge of export controls, will be able to enforce the rules. “The B.I.S.’s to-do list has increased massively, and their budget hasn’t really increased at all,” Allen told me.
Allen also warned that we don’t know how grave a provocation China might consider these rules. He pointed out that in the run-up to the attack on Pearl Harbor, it was America’s refusal to sell oil to Imperial Japan that led the latter to conclude that it was “functionally at war” with the United States. The semiconductor rules are narrower than our oil restrictions on Japan were. “But will China see it that way?” Allen asked. “I kind of doubt it.”
On the other hand, what choice does the United States have?
“These technologies are going to be the foundation of economic strength over the next decades, and there are significant concerns about what the world would look like if China gained the upper hand,” Martijn Rasser, a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security, told me. “It wouldn’t be a world that I would want to live in, and I don’t think most Americans or most of our friends and allies would want to live in it either.”

Chinese chips wasn’t the subject of this thread.
Why don’t you start another thread, as you’ve got an important subject?
Espionage and China go together. Sooner or later chips will be included alongside the salsa.
But if ever there was a globalized industry w/aims to stop Nation States being an entity unto themselves; sovereign w/o dependence on an international ruling body - it is the semiconductor industry w/choke point supply chains.
A global pipe dream come true, where nation states sovereign dreams are crashed;
even the for the U.S., which remains the world’s biggest semiconductor player.
[semiconductor’s highly specialized choke points: tools; chemicals; and software]
For example an ASML EUV machine, takes nearly three decades to develop and commercialize[Netherlands]. It depends on a special chemical/light made only in Houston Texas.
Again; the global design, is to impugn the Nation State’s sovereignty.
I’ve been around long enough to remember paper credit card processing, long before a 32 bit chip. Does any really need an iPhone with built in voice command? So things aren’t so fancy with all the bells and whistles the advertising gurus insist everyone have or else you’ll feel depressed and inadequate.
Progress is simply a means to another Cosmic War…
Some"thing" is manipulating technology’s direction.
Technology has a large number number of ways it could go;
but something is making sure where it goes,
and when is being speeded up as well. [IMO]
