Panel Outlines Severity of U.S.-China Relations

With a little over a week to go before the next round of trade-talks, experts on China got together in Manhattan on Oct. 1 to explain what is at stake for Americans.

“What would you want to achieve by waging war on another country, and how could you achieve those exact same goals using non-military; trans-military, or unconventional military means?” said Investigative Reporter and Senior Editor Joshua Philipp from The Epoch Times, an NTD News affiliate.

It’s called unrestricted warfare: China over the years has weaponized infrastructure, education, and trade to influence or control the means of production at an international level.

As an example, the Rail Security Alliance in the United States reported that Australia lost its railcar industry over nine years to China, after the eastern country pushed out Aussie businesses.

“We can do business with people who don’t take a portion of my money and keep it—that’s what the Communist Party does,” said Radio Host John Batchelor from the John Batchelor Show. “They’re a RICO act, they take a big piece of that profit and keep it for themselves.”

Batchelor, however, said we are in the midst of a transformation, dropping the old Chinese business model, and moving on.

He also gives credit to President Trump for the progress. FOX Business Anchor Tim Sullivan said the president has received bilateral support for his tough stance on China, even from those hurt by tariffs.

“I tell you, the American people are all for buckling down, taking some sacrifices, in order to win this trade war with China,” said Sullivan.

But moderator and Talkers Magazine Publisher Michael Harrison said first and foremost, Americans need to know what’s going on—which he said was the point of this panel.

“Awareness is the first step toward dealing with the encroachment of so many of our values and so many of our interests by the Communist Chinese Party,” said Harrison.

And Batchelor said transparency is key: “China’s non-transparent: transparency is strength. Good information makes for good decisions, makes for good consumers; we know that—they’re learning.”
