How China’s Regime Manipulates U.S. Elections and Investments in U.S.

A top advisor to the Chinese Communist party (CCP) gave a speech in 2016 which has been recently revealed to outline China’s multi-pronged grand strategy to defeat and replace the United States as a world power. I introduced this plan in my earlier piece here. In this, and subsequent articles, I will detail specifics of China’s grand strategy, according to this Chinese political scholar and CCP advisor.

As part of the CCP’s strategy to weaken the U.S., and aid China, said Jin Canrong, a professor and associate dean of the School of International Studies at Beijing’s Renmin University of China, the CCP is strategically investing in U.S. congressional districts, and cultivating up-and-coming congressmen. We have seen this most clearly in the recent scandal involving Democrat Representative, Eric Swalwell, who I wrote about earlier.

Swalwell was caught in a compromising relationship with an alleged Chinese spy who raised money for his campaign and placed one or more interns in his office.

Despite this revelation, Swalwell was placed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the House Select Committee on Intelligence – and even more dangerously – on the subcommittee overseeing the CIA.

Hand-in-hand with China’s effort to influence the U.S. political system, ramping up Chinese investments in the United States is another way to exert influence, noted Jin Canrong, as reported in TET. He added that this investment tactic has the extra benefit of enriching Chinese business people and the CCP:

“The investment opportunities in the United States are relatively good,” he said. “The U.S. market is open—more open than the Japanese and European ones,” he continued, adding that its benefits include its size, transparency, and stability.

He said the Chinese regime wants Chinese business people to control the U.S. market, and also for them to develop their businesses in the country.

A major step toward this ‘investment influence’ goal, are Chinese attempts to negotiate a U.S.-China Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT). The CCP has actively enlisted the help of U.S. companies wishing to enter the Chinese market, as well as the U.S.-China Business Council to advocate and lobby for the signing of a BIT. This highly beneficial agreement to China was actively negotiated during the Obama-Biden years, but thanks to former President Donald Trump, it was dropped during his term.

The Chinese regime also displays a deep and incisive understanding of domestic U.S. electoral politics and how to influence and undermine the process. Using both money and espionage to achieve its objectives.

As the Epoch Times (TET) reported that:

Jin Canrong suggested that the CCP should interfere in U.S. elections to bring pro-Beijing candidates to power. He singled out races for seats in the House of Representatives as an easy target.

“The Chinese government wants to arrange Chinese investments in every single congressional district to control thousands of voters in each district,” Jin said … If China has thousands of votes on hand, China will be the boss of the candidates.”

Jin said China’s ambition is to control at least the House.

“The best scenario is China can buy the United States and change the U.S. House of Representatives into the second Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress,” he said, referring to the committee that oversees the CCP’s rubber-stamp legislature.

Next report will discuss how China builds up America’s enemies and creates international crises and challenges to keep the U.S. distracted, while it continues to work on its plan to defeat and replace America.

We know how the Corona virus was designed in the Wuhan Weapons Virology Labs.. Dr Fauci the highest paid government official in the U.S. Government is paid more than the President of the USA, gave Tax payer money to China and Fauci was in China assisting the Chinese researchers as they worked on Gain of function.. When Fauci left to return to the NIH he warned the Chinese not to play around with gain of function which means to alter a virus in the labs to be more virulent a more deadly killer.. Soon thereafter the CCP knew they had a problem but kept it quiet–they walled off Wuhan to protect the rest of China–they lied to the world–they have never admitted how many dead they had.. Our astronauts circling the Earth daily in the space station reported that they could see the funeral pyres Fires from outer space in a remote area of China.. The CCP then sent their diseased citizens world wide deliberately running a world wide experiment to see just how deadly the designer virus was as a killer of human beings. This is how they will rid the Earth of all but the Chinese Race and all of Earth’s assets will be their property with no damages to repair. We also know they are experimenting with DNA to make their soldiers superhumanly strong Militarily they are ahead of the USA. . .
