We Are Becoming a Colony of China

Once upon a time, in an America long, long ago, I learned the definition of a colony in 7th-grade geography class. A colony sends raw materials to the mother country—ore, wood, oil, crops. The mother country sends finished goods back to the colony: appliances, wood furniture, plastic items, packaged foods, and tools.

Where do we see this today? Right here in the USA, once a colony of Great Britain. We now send oil, plastic pellets, and raw foods to China. China sends us cheap appliances, cheap wood furniture, cheap plastic items, and cheap clothing. We are beginning to meet the textbook definition of a colony. Economically, we are transforming into a colony of China. Remember that Obama said he would “fundamentally transform America?” China is helping. 

Notice that this happened gradually. That’s how the progressive left, socialists, and the worldwide communists achieve their goals. Gradually. The strategy is that when change happens very slowly, you won’t notice it. 

Raw Materials Sent to China, Manufactured Products Sent Back to the USA

Trading Economics reports that three of the top ten exports to China in 2020 were food crops, petroleum, and plastics (in the form of pellets made from petroleum). All raw materials. The same source reports that in 2020, 20% of our imports were from China, the most from any country. Mexico was second at 14%. The top six imports from China were electrical/electronic equipment, machinery and nuclear reactors, toys and games, furniture and lighting, textile articles, and plastics. Since China has far fewer petroleum sources than the US, I assume that the plastics are finished goods made from the plastic pellets we shipped to them. 

Note: plastics are made from petroleum. China ranks 14th in petroleum reserves. China has proven reserves equivalent to 5.4 times its annual consumption. This means that, without imports, there would be about 5 years of oil left (at current consumption levels and excluding unproven reserves). So, they import the plastic pellets made from our petroleum and export back to us the plastic finished products such as dishware, toys, and tools. This is the classic colony/mother country economic relationship.

Notice that the top two categories that China exports to us, electrical/electronic equipment and machinery, are highly engineered products. As you will learn below, that engineering expertise was stolen from the USA. When we send finished products to China, they reverse engineer them and steal the technology we developed. Then China uses our technology to make cheap knock-offs to sell back to us.

How Did This Happen?

There are three components to making a product: raw material, labor, and know-how. Know-how is the most important. Know-how is composed of innovation, research and development, and engineering. This includes the engineering necessary to build the factory and machine tools that make the product.

The easiest example is the silicon chip which powers computers, cell phones, the internet, and even automobiles. Silica is beach sand. Cheap and abundant. Yet the silicon chip is ounce per ounce thousands of times more expensive than gold. Why so expensive? The years of research and development and the engineering that went into the integrated circuit etched onto the chip make it expensive. The brainwork that produces know-how is expensive. Paying a team of R&D scientists and engineers for years is expensive. The brainwork of those scientists and engineers is in the silicon chip.

China Steals Our Know-How and Sells It Back to Us

For the past thirty years, China lured manufacturers into making their products in China. How? Cheap labor and currency manipulation to make the yuan cheaper than the dollar. The catch was that American companies had to send their blueprints, molds, machine tools, and engineering specifications to the Chinese sub-contractors in order to manufacture there. These elements of know-how took years and much expense for the American companies and entrepreneurs to develop.

The Chinese then stole this expensive engineering know-how. Without having to pay for their own research and development, they can make products cheaper. Cheap Chinese products crowded higher-priced American products off the market.

As an example, microwaves, an American invention, are no longer made in America. With no competition from microwaves made in the USA, the Chinese now peddle cheap junk microwaves that barely last 18 months. The last American-made microwave oven I owned lasted over fifteen years.

The most glaring example of Chinese theft of US engineering is their new stealth fighter plane that looks exactly like the American F-35. Through cyber-theft, they stole the classified specifications for this expensive aircraft. When you don’t have to pay for the research and development, you can make anything cheaper than the original inventors in the U.S. 

Invasion of the Brain Snatchers?

China now colonizes our universities in order to steal our own research and development before we have a chance to bring it to market ourselves. They openly fund American university research and use the results for their products. They fund it with the profits from previously stolen American engineering know-how. Profits made when we Americans bought a cheaper version of a product engineered by Americans. 

Like a bad Sci-Fi film, we have financed the invaders who steal the know-how of our creative minds. We are the producers of a reality show called “Invasion of the Brain Snatchers.”

How do we Reverse the Theft and Brain Snatching?

1. Buy American when you can. 

2. If you run a business, look for ways to reduce your prices other than outsourcing to the Chinese. Lean manufacturing techniques are a good start. Lean was invented in America during WWII. 

When you outsource to the Chinese, you are giving them the key to your intellectual tool shed. Don’t be surprised when you later see a cheaper copy of your product on the market—a cheaper copy made with the intellectual property that you paid dearly for.

Michael McCarthy

Michael McCarthy is a life-long student of liberty, limited government, and free-market economics. As a young man, he taught and crewed at the Flint School aboard the 156’ two-masted schooner Te Vega sailing in Europe. Atlas Shrugged was required reading.

In 2010 he saw the acceleration of big government control in politics, business, and culture. Hoping to reach the next generation through fiction entertainment, he wrote the prophetic novel The Noah Option. Powerful politicians target brilliant black scientist Dr. Grace Washington. Her story continues in the sequel, The Rainbow Option, when powerful elites unleash a deadly virus on unsuspecting Americans, and Grace must develop a cure. In The Timshel Option, ISIS invades and creates The New England Caliphate, making women second-class citizens. One teenage girl fights back.

"The things I predicted in my novels came true in the nightly news. Our country is in trouble. Like Abraham Lincoln, I hope for a new birth of freedom,” says McCarthy.

“For the past 30 Years” this has been the Trade Policy of the USA despite Creating the Rust Belt and deindustrializing the USA into a sham “Service Economy”. Despite changing Administrations from Rhinoes to democRats. NAFTA to the almost completed TPP.
Trump upset the entire NWO Plan and that is Why he was Illegally Removed from office.
“America First” and Nationalism is opposite of NWO Globalism. This Globalism is Rule by the Elites for the Elites, and much of the Peasant Class can be Eliminated from existence as well.

America’s Wind Turbines Increase Energy Cost and Endanger Us All

America’s Wind Turbines Increase Energy Cost and Endanger Us All

Wind is even more intermittent than you could imagine, abruptly varying its energy output. Every turbine has a range of wind speeds, usually between 30 miles per hour (mph) and 55 mph, in which it will produce its maximum rated electric output. At lower speeds, the production falls off considerably. At wind speeds above the maximum rate for a turbine, the blades…

America has an Economic Virus

Whenever the government says, it wants to “help,” watch out! The problem is going to get worse. Why? Because government is meddling where it doesn’t belong. Because government is meddling where it has no expertise. Because government meddling imposes top-down “solutions” that are not based on free-market supply and demand. It always backfires…

The pandemic is becoming permanent, even as it ends. Why? Because we did not pass the cabal’s election laws. Had we allowed the cabal to make fraud the norm in every state, then they would have been able to throw future elections even without a pandemic. We did not pass those laws so now the pandemic is permanent…

At the moment, Socialists hold the reins of power in their hands, and in doing so, they have weaponized the DoJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, and Homeland Security significantly enough to change the Patriot Acts definition of who constitutes domestic terrorists. For the Democrat Party, control is essential, and seeing the light of an oncoming train, they are desperately attempting to rearrange…

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

This case is not about whether vaccines are effective, useful, or a good idea. It’s about whether this federal executive branch agency has the power to force millions of people working for or with a Medicare or Medicaid provider to undergo an invasive, irrevocable, forced medical treatment, a COVID shot. It’s a bureaucratic power move that is unprecedented…

Biden’s Forthcoming Failure in the Middle East Will Have Worldwide Implications

Since Biden has come to office, almost every nation that used to depend upon America for their security is realizing how wrong they have been and are now either arming themselves with more weapons or re-aligning with China and Russia, even if temporary. What is brewing in the Middle East – as I have been repeatedly warning – is a Nuclear confrontation because…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

Can Dr. McCullough, talk more about pericarditis? Everyone mentions myocarditis, but there are never any statistics mentioned for pericarditis. In Australia, there are twice as many reports of pericarditis than myocarditis from vaccines. What are the dangers of having Covid naturally and then getting vaccinated? Wasn’t there a thought that you should not get vaccinated for 90 days after having Covid?

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

Patients never have the same doctor or nurse 2 days in a row. Family advocates STILL aren’t allowed to be bedside. The ‘Science’ isn’t being followed, but the ‘Money’ is being chased after. Doctors aren’t THINKING, they are OBEYING. One-size-fits-all does NOT work for high-risk patients or any patients. If you agree this is wrong, help us fight for what’s right…
