Show Notes: Chinese Checkers

While I was watching the opening hysterics of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing I catch a glimpse at the smug face of Diane Feinstein, one of the richest women in the Senate.  This woman was penning open letters to Twitter about the danger of Russian bots, and leaking Glenn Simpson's Fusion GPS testimony as a cheat sheet; working with her colleagues nonstop to push this Russia crap… All the while, she had a Chinese Spy as her personal driver and office manager for 2 decades and NO INVESTIGATION THERE. 

So let’s take that opportunity to layer in some information regarding China… I would like to say off the bat, once again, WRITE IN.  Write in with perspective, supporting or conflicting reports, and anything else you’d like to add to the record. This is just an exploratory conversation – the first of what I am sure will be more, because China has only begun to be implicated in some of these congressional investigations.

Early reports indicated that Feinstein’s spy was only a driver for the senator, but new reports have revealed that Russel Lowe, named as the spy in question, was actually employed as her office manager.

It has been reported that Senator Feinstein first learned that Lowe was a Chinese operative in 2013.  KEEP 2013 IN MIND

“The FBI told me 5 years ago it had concerns that China was seeking to recruit an administrative member of my Calif staff (despite no access to sensitive information). I took those concerns seriously, learned the facts and made sure the employee left my office immediately,” the senator tweeted.  

Well isn’t that special? 

Now read this to brush up on Hillary Clinton's craziness with her Home Server.  Notice the dates. This home base was in operation, at different levels, from 2008 (while still in the Senate) until 2013.   https://dailycaller.com/2018/08/27/china-hacked-clinton-server/

TruePundit reports: “The embattled [Lisa] Page tossed James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap among others under the Congressional bus, alleging the upper echelon of the FBI concealed intelligence confirming Chinese state-backed ‘assets’ had illegally acquired former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 30,000+ “missing” emails, federal sources said. The Russians didn’t do it. The Chinese did, according to well-placed FBI sources.”

And Wendy Sherman, a State Department official under Clinton, confirmed Clinton used the unsecured Blackberry to swap classified information as late as 2011, two years after finding out it was vulnerable…which means, the Intelligence Sloppiness began the moment she walked through the doors of the State Department in 2009…it also means she was a target during her first official trips to China.

Now, consider this… this could add new context to a story we covered last year: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/20/world/asia/china-cia-spies-espionage.html

You can put two and two together for yourself – there was a lot of death and destruction going on while access these channels of intelligence were left open—intelligence classifications from Confidential to Special Access Programs.  Also remember, the FBI concluded in 2016 that Clinton did send/receive classified emails; also concluded that the emails were hacked and viewed by foreign agents…  So between Hillary's Gross Negligence (at the very least) and Diane Feinstein having a spy in her office for twenty-years, it's quite amusing that they would have the balls to CONCOCT a story about Russian interference in anything...interference that was not responsible for changing one damn vote.

UPDATE 11/14/18***

I read an article in the SF Gate that really got me thinking, and then it turned into a whole idea for a segment:

Listen to this.  https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/US-military-advantage-has-eroded-study-says-13390309.php  Now I don’t know what camp of thought you may be in, but this confuses me…

It confuses me because depending on the day of the week and who you talk to, our military spending is unnecessary because  a) We apparently have no one to fight  b) we already spend more than double our closest competitor

2017 Defense Spending: 603 B (USA), 151 B (CHINA) , 77 B (SAUDI Arabia), Russia 61 B

another question I asked myself after reading this article is:  if we are losing our edge to adversaries that spend a fraction of what we do, what the hell does that say?  

I would surmise that this must be at least partially explained by Governments (like China’s) having to do so much less research and development over the last couple of decades…. between the stealing of US consumer and military technology, high-tech spying schemes, and the Clintons, that eliminates a lot work.

UPDATE 1/11/19***

So we know the Chinese they’re spying, hacking, they’re using social media to recruit witting/unwitting US intelligence assets, they steal technology through forced partnerships; Hollywood production companies and Theatre chains have been gobbled up by the billions in recent years by Chinese interest.

Chinese companies have been scouting oil fields in Texas, and other energy investments in places like Nevada – working closely with families like the Feinsteins, Reid’s, and Bidens… buying up key real estate in Manhattan… And not only that but their communist social controls are being adopted by companies like Facebook.

And as far as Africa goes, you don’t need to fire a single shot if you can make a poor, resource-rich country into a Debt Slave.

They’ve have done so by making loans to African countries that they KNOW won’t be able to pay them back. Once the country defaults on their loan, China exacts repayment by taking over an aspect of their infrastructure. They recently took an airport and an electrical grid in Tanzania, and a shipping port in Kenya
