I just want to make one thing clear before I go on with this short column that first and foremost China lied to the world. The Chinese Communist Party lied about COVID19, and has left the world mired in a pandemic that has killed more than 217,000 people and infected more than 3.1 million people. Moreover, economies are paralyzed and every day more and more people are losing their jobs and some of their lives all because the Chinese government failed to report the truth.
In the U.S. alone more than 27 million people have applied for unemployment in the past several months, which is a staggering number and evidence of China’s destructive behavior.
Now the Chinese Communist Party, through the George H.W. Bush Foundation for US-China Relations in Houston and the Sino U.S. Cooperation in Beijing are going to donate more than 100,000 masks to the city of Houston. It is supposed to be a gesture of goodwill but remember China does nothing without having an ulterior motive.
It was stunning to see a recent story in the Chinese communist news outlet, The China Daily, where Neil Bush, the son of George H. W. Bush was praising the Chinese government’s donation of masks, as well as its friendship with the United States.
“We share a common humanity, and the willingness to help support communities around the globe in times of need reflects the values that are consistent with my father’s life-long service to others, and consistent with the values that underpin the relationship between the US and China,” Neil Bush said in a statement posted in the Chinese communist outlet.
China, however, is opportunistic and its actions around the world over the past several months are evidence of that. The communist party seizes on opportunities in the midst of the crisis. They have used this crisis to build up its military, pillage economies and integrate itself into nations and organizations blinded by China’s ambitions as long as it lines their pockets.
For example, while the world is grappling with how to handle the COVID19 pandemic the Chinese military is expanding in the South China Sea, the communists are putting a stranglehold on Hong Kong freedom movements and the party continues to crush any hope of independence for Taiwan.
In a similar move to providing masks for a disease they themselves, the Chinese government help spread, it is now donating $30 million dollars to the World Health Organization, just as the Trump administration said it would pull funding because of the organization’s failure in responding to the pandemic, as well as its deference to China.

We should hold China accountable, not praise the nation like Neil Bush has done in his statement and with his organization. Instead of masks, China should be pay for its actions against our nation, its own people and for that matter, the world. The communist nation shouldn’t be given an opportunity to turn their own mess into good deeds or exploit a world in chaos.
Gordon Chang, who lived in China for roughly 20 years and is the author of the book “The Coming Collapse of China” told me on The Sara Carter Show podcast that China must be held accountable and that the United States must rethink its old failed foreign policy with the communist nation.
In a recent interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily in an interview with host Alex Marlow, Chang proposed building an allied coalition against China to hold the nation financially responsible for its actions. He proposed that Washington seize China’s U.S. Treasury holdings and that it should be done in parallel measures in Ottawa, London, Brussels, Bern, and Tokyo.
“If we act with our allies and friends — the issuers of these other currencies — we can take away that argument from China. We can never take enough money from China to compensate us. We’ve lost so many people. We will lose so many people,” said Chang. “Even just if you looked at the financial damages, China doesn’t have enough assets in the world to compensate the United States, much less other countries. Nonetheless, we’ve got to deter bad actors including China from doing what they did in spreading this disease.”
“All we have to do is [have] the Treasury Department and the President of the United States say, ‘We’re not paying you back. We’re confiscating your holdings of treasuries,” said Chang.
Chang is right. If we don’t do something now to hold the failed Chinese communist party accountable for a pandemic they allowed to be unleashed on the world, we never will.

Electric Vehicle company with Chinese ties awarded $500 million of taxpayer money for 2nd U.S. plant
With a little help from their Democrat friends, a Chinese electric vehicle (EV) battery company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party just announced the opening of its second plant in the United States.
Fox News reports Gotion Inc., whose parent company Gotion High-Tech is based in Hefei, China, unveiled plans to build a $2 billion lithium battery plant in Manteno, Illinois, alongside Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, who cheered the project.
The announcement comes amid growing opposition to the company’s plans to build a billion-dollar factory in Mecosta County, Michigan.
In order to make the expansion happen, lobbyists for the Chinese Communist Party-tied electric vehicle company funneled cash to Democrats. “Individuals at a law firm registered as foreign agents to lobby on behalf of Gotion, a Chinese electric vehicle battery company developing a controversial project in Michigan, and wired campaign contributions to several top Democrats” reports Fox News.
“According to state and federal filings, Monique Field-Foster, an attorney at the Lansing office of the Warner Norcross + Judd law firm who is acting as a foreign agent on behalf of Gotion, donated to the campaigns of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Whitmer’s sister Liz Gereghty and Michigan Democratic Senate hopeful Rep. Elissa Slotkin” the Fox News report continued.
“With the right incentives, nation-leading infrastructure, world-class workforce and booming clean energy production, we have transformed ourselves into an attractive location for global manufacturers. Today, we take another leap forward. It’s my pleasure to welcome Gotion to Illinois and to show the world yet again that Illinois is ready to be a player on the world stage.”
Pritzker delivered remarks late last week thanking Gotion for choosing Illinois to call “home” in a ceremony with leaders from Gotion High-Tech, including Li Zhen, the company’s chairman and president, who said he expected the factory to open in less than 12 months.
“All that we see here [in Illinois] are of enormous value to us: an enabling business environment, a supportive state government for the new energy industry and their highly efficient work, as well as the prospects of the State of Illinois in the coming years,” the Gotion president added. “We believe that Gotion’s battery technology will help to boost e-mobility in North America and the economic and trade exchanges between China and the U.S.”
