China's Communist Party has infiltrated various levels of America's infrastructure and is working to destroy the values of the United States, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a speech Saturday, while also warning state governors to be wary of China's infiltration.
We cant ignore Chinas actions and strategic intentions," he said while addressing the National Governors Association winter meeting. "The Chinese government has been methodical in the way it's analyzed our system... it's assessed our vulnerabilities and it's decided to exploit our freedoms, to gain an advantage over us at the federal level, the state level and the local level."
Competition with China is happening. Its happening in your state," Pompeo added. "In fact, I'd be surprised if most of you in the audience had not been lobbied by the Chinese Communist Party directly."
He said groups loyal to communist China are operating out in the open in Virginia, Minnesota, Florida and dozens of other states all around the country. Other Chinese groups, however, practice their nefarious actions in the shadows in an attempt to exercise influence over U.S. citizens and lawmakers.
Pompeo cited a letter from a diplomat at the Chinese Consul in New York to the speaker of an unnamed state legislature, advising that U.S. officials refrain from independent interaction with Taiwan.
You add a diplomat from China, assigned here to the United States, a representative of the Chinese Communist Party, in New York City, sending a letter urging that an American elected official shouldnt exercise his right to freedom of speech," he explained.
The secretary said this isn't an uncommon event and that Chinese officials based in the U.S. are actively seeking to sow seeds of chaos at the state and local level -- specifically in the realm of education on college campuses and K-12 classrooms.

Bring our drug manufacturing back!
80% of our meds are manufactured in China.
Very good. If we hadnt let them get in here and basically destroy our local production and make themselves into our sole source for manufactured goods, wed be a lot less worried about Wuhan flu.

Be careful whenever you eat at a Chinese restaurant, the fortune cookie messages could be meant to turn you into a Communist spy!
And he let Feinstein go. Thanks Mike!
My wife thinks Im crazy, but I told her no more Chinese take-out until this coronavirus scare passes. Who knows where and when any of the workers in these restaurants were last in China or who is currently visiting.
There are a minimum of 50,000 Chinese Communist Party spies at U.S. companies, government agencies, and U.S. military. This particular nation-state insider threat does not include those employees who have been blackmailed and turned. It is to the level of extreme infiltration,.... BlackOps CEO Casey Fleming said.
That is separate to the academic world, where there are over 350,000 Chinese students attending U.S. universities under U.S. educational visas, who the CCP considers intelligence assets and whose education is paid for by the CCP, so they and their families are indebted to the CCP for the rest of their lives.
So why not treat this as an act of war?
