The BBC reported that the UK has allowed Huawei to continue to be used in its 5G networks but under certain restrictions.
This decision came about regardless of American pressure on the UK to block the Chinese firm.
Huawei will be banned from providing kit to “sensitive parts” of the network, better known as the core.
Additionally, Huawei will only be allowed to compromise 35 percent of the kit in a network’s periphery, which covers radio masts.
It will also be excluded from areas near military bases and nuclear sites.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson had reportedly spoken to President Trump to explain this decision.
“The prime minister underlined the importance of like-minded countries working together to diversify the market and break the dominance of a small number of companies,” a statement from the Prime Minister’s office said.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned about the usage of Huawei’s equipment as a potential espionage risk, declaring that “we won’t be able to share information” with nations that put it into their “critical information systems”.
However, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab claimed that the decision would not affect the UK’s intelligence-sharing relationship with the US government and other close allies.
“Nothing in this review affects this country’s ability to share highly-sensitive intelligence data over highly-secure networks both within the UK and our partners, including the Five Eyes,” the minister informed the House of Commons.
There has been considerable pressure from the US and several Conservative MPs to keep the Chinese tech giant from entering the British market on the grounds of national security.
A Trump administration official declared that the US government “is disappointed” with the decision.
Republican Senator Tom Cotton, a member of the US Senate Intelligence Committee expressed his disappointment on Twitter.
“I fear London has freed itself from Brussels only to cede sovereignty to Beijing,” he tweeted.
This decision is deeply disappointing for American supporters of the Special Relationship. I fear London has freed itself from Brussels only to cede sovereignty to Beijing. https://t.co/JBU4ARQLjs

Newt Gingrich, a former Speaker of the US House of Representatives during the 1990s, described this decision as a “strategic defeat” for America.
BLP previously covered the U.S. government’s skepticism towards Huawei and its desire to keep it out of the American market.
For national security purposes, it would be best that the U.S. and its allies keep this politically-connected tech giant at a distance.
Until China’s behavior changes on the international stage, Huawei and other companies connected to the Chinese Communist Party should be viewed with considerable skepticism.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
