There is some good news on the national horizon according to a report in the Epoch Times who has an extensive understanding of the Chinese Communist Party’s involvement in the United States, including how the US Department of Justice has brought Justice, numerous Chinese spies, over the last 4 years.
In a recent article, Over 1,000 Chinese Military-Linked Researchers Have Left US Since Federal Crackdown: DOJ Official ,Cathy He wrote:
More than 1,000 Chinese military-linked researchers have left the United States since authorities arrested several suspected undercover Chinese military officers over the summer, according to a senior Justice Department official.
Earlier this year, at least four Chinese researchers were arrested and charged with visa fraud for allegedly lying on their applications about their status as members of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the official name of the Chinese military. One of those researchers was harbored by the Chinese consulate in San Francisco for weeks before he was eventually arrested in late July.
A Chinese visiting student also was indicted on similar charges in January.
John C. Demers, assistant attorney general for national security, said those arrests “were just the tip of the iceberg,” leading to an investigation that uncovered a vast network of suspected undercover PLA researchers across the country.
“Between those … arrests, between the dozens of interviews that the bureau [FBI] did with other individuals who were here in similar circumstances, and then, ultimately, the closure of the Houston consulate to disrupt both foreign influence activity and economic espionage activity, more than 1,000 PLA-affiliated Chinese researchers left the country,” Demers said during a virtual discussion at the Aspen Cyber Summit on Dec. 2.
“They were part of a Chinese government effort to send these individuals here, and to send them here without disclosing their identity.”

From the executive order, Trump is untangling the United States from China. That could be a be a big part of the agenda to keep him out of power.
I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is increasingly exploiting United States capital to resource and to enable the development and modernization of its military, intelligence, and other security apparatuses, which continues to allow the PRC to directly threaten the United States homeland and United States forces overseas, including by developing and deploying weapons of mass destruction, advanced conventional weapons, and malicious cyber-enabled actions against the United States and its people.
Key to the development of the PRC’s military, intelligence, and other security apparatuses is the country’s large, ostensibly private economy. Through the national strategy of Military-Civil Fusion, the PRC increases the size of the country’s military-industrial complex by compelling civilian Chinese companies to support its military and intelligence activities. Those companies, though remaining ostensibly private and civilian, directly support the PRC’s military, intelligence, and security apparatuses and aid in their development and modernization.
At the same time, those companies raise capital by selling securities to United States investors that trade on public exchanges both here and abroad, lobbying United States index providers and funds to include these securities in market offerings, and engaging in other acts to ensure access to United States capital. In that way, the PRC exploits United States investors to finance the development and modernization of its military.
I therefore further find that the PRC’s military-industrial complex, by directly supporting the efforts of the PRC’s military, intelligence, and other security apparatuses, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat, which has its source in substantial part outside the United States, to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. To protect the United States homeland and the American people, I hereby declare a national emergency concerning this threat.
