Justice Department officials released an urgent warning about China, noting “the stakes could not be higher.” Chinese espionage is so widespread that it has become a serious threat to national security. A scandal links U.S. technology stolen from Harvard University to alleged bioweapons laboratories in Wuhan, which is ground zero for the 2019-nCoV virus outbreak.
China is a military threat to our national security
On Thursday, FBI Director Christopher Wray issued an urgent warning. China’s pursuit of U.S. technology and trade secrets is the “greatest long-term threat to our economic vitality.” The director teamed up with Attorney General William Barr to outline “the government’s countermeasures” to Chinese espionage. “The stakes could not be higher,” Barr insists. “industrial espionage and theft of technology” are only the tip of the iceberg.
As of right now, the Federal Bureau of Instigation has “1,000 open investigations into suspected Chinese economic espionage and technology thefts.” Xi Jinping “will use any means necessary” to hijack our “information technology systems, aerospace, agriculture, defense and research programs, and broad swaths of academia,” asserts Wray at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “The dictatorship has mobilized all aspects of Chinese society to dominate the core technologies of the future.”
According to Wray, “The Chinese have targeted companies producing everything from proprietary rice and corn seeds to software for wind turbines to high-end medical devices.” William Barr points out, it’s costing “American industries and academia up to $600 billion annually.”
Scandal links U.S. technology to Chinese bioweapon
Just last week, a Harvard University professor was charged in federal court with lying about his connections to an alleged bioweapons lab in Wuhan, China. There is a huge possibility that Charles Lieber, chair of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard, supplied technology used to create the 2019-nCoV coronavirus.
The communist government paid Lieber “$50,000 a month and up to $158,000 in living expenses” for “cultivating young teachers and students.” They gave him another “$1.5 million to create a research lab at the Wuhan University of Technology.” At the same time he was taking money from China, Lieber was also a “principal investigator” working on at least six research projects funded by U.S. Defense Department agencies. Harvard’s Biology department had another big investor, Jeffrey Epstein.
Wuhan is coincidentally the home of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, “the only declared site in China capable of working with deadly viruses.” Also, nearby the institute is a separate lab, The Wuhan Institute of Biological Products. It’s a “civilian facility but is linked to the Chinese defense establishment.” It’s widely accepted as part of the Chinese Bio-weapons program. “The biosafety lab is located about 20 miles from the Hunan Seafood Market that reports from China say may have been origin point of the virus.”
Social media shows China acting suspicious
The People’s Republic of China rules the nation’s internet with an iron fist. When an eye doctor in Wuhan pushed the alarm buzzer on the first detected cases of the new coronavirus, 34-year-old Li Wenliang was arrested for “rumor-mongering.” All he did was post on his former medical school’s WeChat page “that seven patients from a local seafood market had been diagnosed with a SARS-like illness and were quarantined in his hospital in Wuhan.” Now he might be dead.
Wenliang became seriously ill and was hospitalized. “In the fight against the pneumonia epidemic of the new coronavirus infection, our hospital’s ophthalmologist Li Wenliang was unfortunately infected. He is currently in critical condition and we are trying our best to resuscitate him,” as statement noted. Only hours earlier, they had reported he died. Reports of his death caused instant outrage on social media so it seems they decided he was “resuscitated.” It could go either way.
“Multiple state media outlets including Global Times and People’s Daily, the ruling Communist Party’s official newspaper, had earlier said Li had died, but later deleted their reports,” CNN writes. “Chinese social media erupted with a mix of a profound grief and anger.”
The Global Times tweeted that Li had died around 10:40 p.m. local time Thursday, “linking to a report that cited friends and doctors at Wuhan Central Hospital.” They removed the post several hours later. “Other Chinese media outlets also deleted their reports of his death, without explanation.” Alive or not, this shows that a young doctor in good health is either dead or near death from this new designer weapon.
