Report: China Put Thousands of U.S. Federal Workers on Their Payroll, Gaining Access to Sensitive Data

This severely jeopardizes national security.

Published

A report from the Daily Caller News Foundation describes a federal investigation revealing Chinese subversion within the U.S. that has resulted in thousands of moles within the government leaking sensitive information to the communist superpower.

This has come as result of China’s Thousand Talents Plan, a scheme designed to buy off foreign workers in their rival countries. Through this illicit program, they likely put thousands of U.S. federal workers on their payroll and received data about crucial programs.

Certain lawmakers in Washington D.C. are aware of the scheme, and ordered an investigation into the matter.

“China wins twice. First, the American taxpayer funds China’s research and development. Second, China uses that research to improve its economic and military status,” Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) said.

Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) said that “there are serious consequences that come from giving a foreign government so much control over the vital research we rely on to drive our country’s economic competitiveness and bolster our national defense.”

The Senate investigation has produced a report showing exactly how terrifyingly effective the Chinese plan has been. It indicated that there are 35,000 foreign researchers – including 10,000 Chinese – doing research at the National Labs on behalf of the Department of Energy (DOE).

During the investigation, the counterintelligence office found one individual who departed to China with 30,000 files after working as a postgraduate fellow with the DOE. The DOE is hardly the only federal bureaucracy that has been infiltrated by the dastardly Chinese.

National Institutes of Health (NIH) gave access to sensitive genomic data to companies intimately linked to the Chinese government. An investigation showed that the NIH showed no concern for “national security risks, such as weaponizing for biological warfare,” and they did not take into account “whether the [principal investigator] is in a foreign country that is on a United States Government watch list.” Their vetting only included “reviewing the first page of results from a Google search,” the report stated.

The State Department has also been derelict in taking into account the Chinese threat. The report determined that State “denied less than five percent of the visa applications it determined warranted additional scrutiny due to concerns that the applicant might violate export control laws.” The Department of Commerce “issued at least 20 licenses to Chinese nationals associated with various Chinese talent recruitment plans,” and rejected applications from foreign nationals only 1.1 percent of the time.

Meanwhile, the FBI dissolved its “National Security Higher Education Advisory Board (‘NSHEAB’) designed to facilitate security cooperation with the U.S. higher education community” in 2018 despite Director Christopher Wray admitting to Congress that he was aware China was using “nontraditional collectors, especially in the academic setting, whether it’s professors, scientists, students” and were successfully exploiting “naiveté on the part of the academic sector.”

The federal administrative state has failed America, and countless bureaucrats have sold their souls to the communist Chinese. President Trump must succeed in his mandate to drain the swamp, or else this mixture of treachery and incompetence from the deep state will completely destroy the land of the free.

President Trump Announces Planned Ban on Chinese-Owned TikTok App

The app has serious spying concerns.

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced that he’s preparing to ban the video app TikTok on national security grounds on Friday, citing the concerns over the Chinese app’s connections to Chinese government security, and the potential use of the nominally innocent app to surveil American citizens.

The President had made the announcement on an Air Force One flight to the press pool, later confirming that the media could report on the policy move on the record.

As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” said the President bluntly.

TikTok is a viral video app marketed to teenagers and young adults that allows users to create short and edited videos. It’s frequently used for memes, pranks, and simple political content. It’s owned by Chinese company ByteDance, which is obligated to cooperate with Chinese intelligence services under the laws of China.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had previously spoken of security concerns involving the Chinese app. Microsoft had recently offered to purchase the app from its parent company, but the surveillance and security surrounding it appear to have shelved such a possibility for now.

There are genuine surveillance and data-mining concerns with TikTok, but it’s also probably worth considering that banning the app will allow neoliberal tech monopolies such as Facebook and Apple to share up an even larger share of the demand for platforms designed for similar content.
