By standing up to China, President Trump Protecting America Technology Against Piracy
The world’s second-largest economy has responded to President Donald Trump’s controversial trade tariffs, according to this morning’s blaring news headlines.

Notice the words used to describe China: “The world’s second-largest economy”.

.

The Story Behind The Story here is that billionaire activists, passed off as businessmen, have worked over decades to replace America with China as the world’s chief economic power.

Conspicuously missing from the blaring headlines is that Trump’s “controversial trade tariffs” go straight to the heart of serious intellectual theft claims which are part of his tariff dispute with China.

Long before the president decided to stand up to them, the Chi-coms were working to kill off the once thriving automobile market in North America.

And incredibly, they were working it in tandem with the steadfast help of prominent businessmen.

Back in 2006, It was the stated intention of the late ‘Father of the Environment’ Canadian billionaire Maurice Strong and hedge fund manager George Soros to flood the American market with cheap Chinese made cars, specifically the ‘Chery’, a Chinese model allegedly stolen from the design of the South Korean Spark, sold in the U.S. in partnership with General Motors.

“Strong and Soros hope to decimate Ford, Chrysler and GM by flooding the U.S. market with cheapo Cherys on a 2007 timeline. (Canada Free Press, June 15, 2006)

“Marketed as the “Poor Man’s Wheels”, the Chery originates from yet another copycat China endeavour. “The Chery is a knockoff of the South Korean Spark, sold in the U.S. in partnership with General Motors.” (WorldNetDaily, June 12, 2006).

“GM filed a lawsuit, (later dropped) against Chery automobile Co. for piracy of the car developed by its South Korean Daewoo.”

“The lawsuit launched in the name of GM Daewoo auto & Technology Co. Ltd., contends Chery’s QQ copied the design of Daewoo’s Matiz, while Chery claims it developed the QQ on its own. GM’s investigation results showed the two vehicles “shared remarkably identical body structure, exterior design, interior design and key components.”

Chinese Chery manufacturers left the court having to make only one concession—to come up with a new name for Chery, which sounded too much like Chevy.

“The plan is to sell 250,000 Cherys in the U.S. in the first year through 250 dealerships, with a target of 1 million by 2010,” states WND. (CFP—Strong & Soros in business a Partnership from Hell, June 15. 2006)

CFP called the Strong-Soros get together “the business Partnership from Hell”.

Although you’d never know it from today’s Internet, both were (and one still is) bitter septuagenarian running dogs for the One World Order-pushing UN. Strong died in 2015.

“The marketing meister, working with Strong and Soros on pushing the Chery, was Malcolm Bricklin, who brought you the failed 1980 introduction of the Yugo in America. (CFP—Maurice Strong, George Soros, Chinese Cars in america

)

“Strong is on the public record for having stated that for humanity to survive, it may be necessary “for industrial civilization to collapse.”

“After blowing $23 million to keep Bush from returning to the White House, spoiled sport Soros told reporters if Bush were to be re-elected, he planned to go away to “some kind of monastery to reflect on what is wrong with us”, a promise he never kept.

“Soros went on to bankroll Moveon.org and to continue to carp at Bush and Company from the sidelines.

“Strong’s infamous forced industrial collapse remark could be written off as the public musings of a crackpot on a bad day. Problem is that it is that crackpot, who is against single-family houses and air conditioning, who went on to create the Earth Charter with sidekick Mikhail Gorbachev.

“At last count, The Earth Charter, which Strong and Gorbachev claim is a replacement for the Ten Commandments, was being carted from school to school in its goatskin covered gilded case by UN Staff.”

 

Just as the Strong-Soros plan to flood the American market with as many as 250,000 cars was getting off the ground, the Chery car faced worldwide recall: (CFP Chairman Mo, George Soros flunk on Chery, Dec. 26, 2006)

“Chery automobile Co. Ltd., one of China’s largest own-brand car makers, announced its first recall of products worldwide days ago.” (stocknews.com.cn, Dec. 22, 2006).

“It’s the first time for a Chinese own-brand automaker to recall its vehicles globally as the products to be recalled involving (sic) those sold to overseas markets.”

“Wuhu-based Chery has submitted its recall report to the General administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China (aQSIQ).

“Chery said in the report that it would recall 1,875 Triggos with auto transmission, produced during the period from March 27 to October 25 this year, as of December 20, 2006 until March 31, 2007, due to a faulty wire in the front cover.

And that wasn’t Chery’s first recall:

 

“The Chinese carmaker’s Oriental son models, produced between July 14, 2003 and May 6, 2005 are on recall—making it the first such action by a Chinese sedan brand in China.

“Qin Lihong, vice general manager of Chery’s marketing company, said in an interview on Nov. 20 that Chery has made full preparation and guarantees sufficient supply of components and parts for this move which will begin as of Nov. 26.” (People’s Daily Online, Nov. 21, 2005).

“The national quality watchdog issued its annual report on the implementation of regulations on recall of defected automobiles recently. Since the regulations were promulgated in March last year, 29 such actions have been initiated by 21 Chinese and foreign auto makers by September this year, involving 33 models and 339,696 units recalled. In 2006, Chery exported over 25,000 units to cover 30 countries and regions including Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Russia and Iran.”

That’s the story of the Chinese Chery knockoff of the South Korean Spark, sold in the U.S. in partnership with General Motors.

Meanwhile the lib-left is in a lather all because Trump is sticking trade tariffs on the Peoples’ Republic of China, accusing him of “triggering a global trade war”.

“The U.S. goods, which had an import value of $3 billion in 2017, include wine, fresh fruit, dried fruit and nuts, steel pipes, modified ethanol, and ginseng, the ministry said. (CNBC, Mar.22, 2018)

“Those products could see a 15 percent duty, while a 25 percent tariff could be imposed on U.S. pork and recycled aluminium goods, according to the statement.

“The statement did not go into greater detail. U.S. agricultural products, particularly soybeans, have been flagged as the biggest area of potential retaliation by Chinese President Xi Jinping’s administration.

“Beijing will take measures against the 128 U.S. goods in two stages if it cannot reach an agreement with Washington, the ministry said, adding that it could take legal action under World Trade Organization rules.

Asian stock markets took a dive on the news, with Japan’s Nikkei index sliding as much as 4 percent.

 

“The Friday response from Beijing is relatively measured, experts told CNBC.

“The decision to target $3 billion in U.S. imports is significant, “but it’s not a lot in terms of the total U.S.-China relationship,” said economist Tony Nash, who is CEO and founder of data analytics firm Complete Intelligence.

“Chinese imports from the U.S. are expected to hit $172 billion this year, he pointed out.

“Recent U.S. trade actions severely damage the multilateral trading system and disturb the international trading order, China’s commerce ministry said, urging Washington to resolve its issues with Beijing to avoid harming the bilateral relationship.

“Trump signed an executive memorandum on Thursday that will impose tariffs on up to $60 billion in Chinese imports. “This is the first of many” trade actions, the president said. The new measures will primarily target certain products in the technology sector where Beijing holds an advantage over Washington.

“That followed Trump’s executive order earlier this month that imposed broad duties on foreign aluminum and steel imports—an action that many said could trigger a global trade war.”

Trump’s global trade war with China is one that aims to achieve something no other president has attempted: the protection of American technology against pirating by China.
