The Chinese Has Been Busy Infiltrating the United States For a Long Time

How deep is the Deep State, how deep is Chinese infiltration? 

The following is an unfinished commentary intended for the Giant Killers Organization website in 2001. I ran across it this morning and thought I'd share it with you. 

The bottom line is this, there were  Chinese in and out of the picture throughout Bill Clinton's presidency, and here we see a commentary being penned by myself in 2001 that  speaks to this very subject. 

Keep in mind who was in the WH during this time: GW Bush.  --Al Colombo

As follows: 

=========== From 10/12/01 commentary

Yes, indeed, the world is changing. In fact, while the Congress was working to dismantle our HUMINT field network, immigration and visa laws, as well as enforcement procedures, were loosened so to allow more foreigners into the United States. For example, when an individual comes to the U.S. on the wrong visa, enforcement usually gives the person a citation, tells them when to show up for court, and then allows them to enter and blend in with other Americans. In many if not most cases these people simply never return.

During the 1990's we also saw a significant number of foreign students enter the U.S. using legal student visas. Not all of them came here for a college education either.

"U.S. counterintelligence (CI) officials say some Chinese students, especially in physics, computer science and other high-tech disciplines, are actually Chinese spies, and that some real students are ordered to report what they learn about U.S. high-tech research to the Chinese government."5 

When the writer of the previous comment voiced his heartfelt thoughts on the issue of childish men in positions of leadership, it made this author think. I hadn't thought about it in quite that way, but I believe that he hit the nail squarely on the head.

For quite some time this author has considered the behavior of liberal-left leaders, such as Bill Clinton and Al Gore and wondered concerning their motivation. On one hand they appear sincere in their global agenda, but on the other, their globalistic ideas fly in the face of common sense--at least the conservative common sense that I was taught all of my life.

For example, when LTV Steel announced that Chase Manhatan had decided not to continue negotiations,that they might have to close their doors, community leaders and politicians began to talk about the damage that NAFTA, GATT, the WTO and other free-trade treaties have done to this country. I listened as Representative Dennis Kucinich ...

My point is this, the more things have changed since 2001, the more they apparently have stayed the same. The Chinese  have been in this nation for a long time, meddling and working their way up the ladder at every level of government. They appear to own our "propaganda news organizations," and I say that because these groups dispense far more than just the news.

Edward Snowden Reveals His Motivication for Disclosing NSA's Domestic Intelligence Gathering Efforts


Recently it has come to light that Uncle Sam is creating an audit trail of all communications in and outside of the United States.

Surprisingly, everyone acts as though this is the first time that Uncle has monitored the population's electronic communications en masse. The fact is, back in the 1990s, we learned of a SIGINT (Signal Intelligence) program called Echelon that essentially did the same thing, only using another nation's intelligence officers to do the spying.

US CIA leaker Edward Snowden, an infrastructure analyst for CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), offers some thoughts as to why a young man with so much to lose still chooses to disclose what NSA (National Security Agency) is doing by way of massive monitoring of domestic communications.

Snowden says that his worst fear is that even after disclosure, the American public will do nothing to change things--that everything will continue on as if he hadn't made this huge sacrifice. Honestly, his career is over, perhaps his very life. And yet most of us in this nation have no idea as to what the implications is of the information that Snowden has given us. Worst yet, most of us don't even know this young man's name and most of us don't even care about what he has told us.

In time, more Snowden's are going to surface, especially as NSA becomes even more power hungry and intrusive in their intelligence gathering practices.

If you are one of those people who could give a rat's rear as to what Snowden has chosen to share with the world, despite the life-changing nature of the information he's leaked, then you need to look in the mirror. You need to give some serious thought to who you are, what you are, and what you have become.

The Chinese Intelligence Apparatus in the United States

This past Sunday many of us on Google+ discussed the issue of Chinese purchase of a wind farm near a U.S. Military base. The story, entitled Not just tilting at windmills (The Economist), provided interesting information on how the Obama administration stopped the purchase of a wind farm in Oregon.

There were those who couldn't believe that the U.S. Government would interfere with business, not to mention the act of insulting a trade partner as important as China. However, as I pointed out at the time, it's folly to even think of allowing any Chinese State-owned company to set up camp near a military base.

I stated, "Here's the primary reason why you do not want China anywhere near a military base: SIGINT. Call it paranoia if you wish, but it's NATIONAL SECURITY and I would expect nothing less from the Chinese Gov't if the roles were switched."

As a webmaster myself, I can attest to the fact that most of the hacking and spamming attempts that I see on my servers come from the Chinese and Russian Federations. There is literally no limit to which they will go to glean critical information from both military and private/public government contractors.

Here we are again, Chinese made telecommunication equipment is now suspect of providing spy potential for the Chinese Government within the U.S. and other countries.

"To the extent these companies are influenced by the state, or provide Chinese intelligence services access to telecommunication networks, the opportunity exists for further economic and foreign espionage by a foreign nation-state already known to be a major perpetrator of cyber espionage," the Committee wrote in a 52-page report.

Specifically, the committee outlined the threat of "malicious" computer technology being used to access U.S. trade secrets, research and development data and negotiating platforms "China would find useful in obtaining an unfair diplomatic or commercial advantage over the United States."

The moral of the lesson that our citizens should take away from this is simple: We cannot trust the Chinese. I'm not sure how many of our allies that we can truly trust, especially when the current administration fails to firmly stand behind Israel and other traditional allies.

In a word, we need to put National Security first, business second, while attending to business first to assure a strong national defense.
