Dr. Linne Bourget for Positive Leaders--COVID Context, China’s Dangerous Dozen and Our Election! Special Edition from The Positive Paranoid--What You Say Is What You Get® Oct. 2020
Hello Positive Leaders,
What is Really Behind China's COVID strategy? What Do You Need to Know to Protect Your Company and Thrive?
As we deal with the COVID pandemic, fear, health and economic losses, all part of China’s plan, and violence in our cities,we are distracted from their larger plan. COVID is only one part. They are open about it, determined to overtake us and dominate us and world markets economically and politically. Not a secret. For their plan, see below, excerpts from my new Positive Crisis Leadership Manual in my What You Say Is What You Get® Positive Leadership Series.
E.g. If you search for who is funding the violence in U.S. cities, you will find Marxist/Communist money behind the organizations orchestrating violence, including
Chinese communist associations, to divide us, destroy our economy and
the rule of law, working their own agendas. Remember Communist dictatorships do not accept the rule of law. They wield power unilaterally.
I am embarrassed that as a University of Chicago Economist, expert in China, Russian, Japan, the U.S, comparative economic systems, communism, capitalism, socialism, I completely missed the threat of communism to the U.S.
Although I accurately predicted years in advance the fall of communism in the USSR, after the Berlin wall fell, I completely ignored its threat, involved in my Positive Leadership work as a behavioral scientist, expert in how leaders use power.
Only in 2016 when I saw the buses lined up in obviously violent Seattle orchestrated protests and researched who funded them, did I see it was communist money. Follow the money! Protesters were paid, with full medical benefits, and trained to protest,
funded by an avowed communist. I saw the job description on a website. Wake- up call!!!This has grown worse, with more intentionally orchestrated violence and polarization, often tainting important issues e. g. racism, poverty.
Please Note: I only speak from my professional expertise as and Economist, M.B.A., Ph.D. expert in leadership power and change, expert in spiritual principles in organizations/business, and wellness educator, with 30+ years of practical experience.
A few points about the economic war against the U.S. before the China strategy:
--I first saw the economic war against the U.S. on 9/11. Terrorists downed the trade towers, not our churches.
Hussein crippled our airlines by threatening terrorist attacks-there
were none-hundreds of billions of dollars in losses.
invasions on the southern border, 1000% more illegals than before,
mostly military age men, funded by a radical leftist group, cost us
billions in border and ongoing many types of post-border costs.
--Illegals in the former administration costs us $386 billion/yr. (data from Attorney/Assoc., Dean, a grad business school).
East terrorists manipulated previous Presidents (who allowed it) into
spending $8 trillion!! in largely fruitless wars there.
manipulated the Clintons--who agreed--to transfer to Russia control of
20% of our uranium capacity, who are building nuclear weapons against
us, for a large donation to their foundation...most say $130 million.
“Fake culture wars only distract us from our economic decline." Peter Thiel, Technology Billionaire
What is China really doing to us globally, beyond COVID? Did you know that China:
- Engineered for decades trade deficit with the U.S., including theft of our intellectual property and forced technology transfer, of nearly one Trillion dollars per year up to 2016 when President Trump was elected?
- Now has the largest navy in the world and will double their nuclear warheads in the next 10 years, against us?
- States they plan to overtake us economically by 2032? (South China Morning Post)
- Is buying oil from Russia, not using the U.S.dollar, and buying oil in South America?
- Is locking up Africa economically, about trade, with loans African countries can never repay, for their natural resources?
- Plans to take over the EU market, to shrink U.S. trading there, with their one belt one road from China to the EU, via Italy? (This is why Italy was hit so hard by COVID, which then spread to the EU, not an accident.)
Hong Kong, squashing its more capitalist economic activities, and is now
eyeing Taiwan, with whom we have much trade?
- Had over 90% of our U.S. medical supply chain?
Thankfully President Trump is changing this. In an interview, a
Chinese woman owner of a company sending phony medications into Canada for U.S.customers,
was proud of this!
- Demand for U.S. homes from foreign investors, especially Chinese, pushes up home prices, worsening
according to Wharton research. House prices grew 8% more in U.S. zip codes with high foreign-born Chinese populations from 2012 to 2018. Chinese buyers have led foreign investments in U.S. homes for the past 7 years. In 2019-2020, they bought U.S. home properties worth $11.5 billion, or a little more than a sixth of the total.(Knowledge@Wharton, 9/1/20)
- Hacks our companies and government, spies and steals intellectual property?
Over 50 Chinese NIH scientists
and Chinese students from at least two Universities, including the University of Virginia, have been caught stealing U.S.
With 600,000 Chinese in the U.S. 360,000 of whom are students, imagine how many more
there are. This was painful for me, as I consulted at NIH for four years and spent many happy hours at U.VA.
in Charlottesville, while teaching at the Federal Executive Institute, studying the spiritual foundations of our country.
- Pressures its citizens in the U.S. to spy and steal, as their families in China get a lower “social credit” score,
needed for health care access and other resources, if they refuse? Will
your intellectual property be stolen?
- Sells us products laden with toxic chemicals? One article of clothing had 900 times the formaldehyde permitted in the U.S. I had to return a pair of jeans made in China, as they reeked of chemicals. The company said they had many complaints.
We don’t hear these in the mainstream media, making complacency easier, but far more dangerous, as most Americans are uninformed, not seeing these dangers. Think COVID is bad? Yes the loss of life, peace, and the presence of economic disaster, right after the lowest unemployment rates ever for women and minorities (thanks to the Trump administration), are horrific, and intentional by China. And..the above Dangerous Dozen are just as dangerous economically, but often less visible.
As an Economist I see these as only a few obvious threats...many more we are not told about increase that threat further. Always remember that Communist China is a brutal dictatorship oppressing its people and suppressing religion. There is no freedom of speech, assembly or religion. Marxist Communism is atheist. Only government has power, no one else.
Thankfully, Economist Dr. Peter Navarro, head of trade for President Trump, has known of China’s plan to take us down economically for years and published much about it. He is helping the Administration stand up for us with China, not easy! I have followed his work for 15 years...he knows the dangers. I wish I had gone into his work in more detail sooner.
What Is the One Big Question We Should All Be Asking Now?
Why have all former Presidents, in BOTH parties, allowed China to take huge economic advantage of us, cheating us, weakening our economy, for decades? Why is President Trump the first one working to stop their abuses and protect us economically? Like you, I wasn't paying attention, caught up in U.S. domestic issues and my own life. But no more!
What Can Leaders Do to Protect Their Companies and Counteract These Threats? Take These Steps!
into your positive spiritual faith, and with your team(s), stand on,
appreciate, and unleash your teams' strengths for creative solutions in
products, services and markets. (This is the core of my consulting
work...we can help.)
- Many are moving their supply chains out of China to other countries. I
bought a laptop battery from Korea instead of
China...worth a few more dollars.
- Be very careful about toxic products from China, at work and at home. Many do not realize the health risks of out-gassing
from toxic chemicals in desks, chairs, and more. I always look at the
label first, or search or country of origin.
- Do careful vetting of all employees, associates, partners, and others from China with whom your company works. I know of a service vetting people with 99.9% accuracy for their intentions to do harm. This service is proven and accepted in courts.
Contact me if you want this security. I recommend it to all my consulting clients for hiring and other reasons.
- Tighten up your security and cybersecurity procedures to protect your intellectual property. We know that China’s hacking
very dangerous and costly. Beware of any technology from China, it may contain hacking or stealing capacity.
Test it. Pres. Trump is right about TikToc and other Chinese companies
that make us vulnerable to economic harm and loss of privacy.
- Educate your employees, investors, partners, and others about these risks, while focusing on your goals and strengths.
- Vote for those who will stand up to China and protect us,
not be doing pay for play deals, like the Bidens, who will,
frighteningly, not protect us. The press MISSES THIS KEY...China would
NEVER give Hunter Biden a $1.5 billion dollar deal or Ukraine give him
millions of $ in a company where he had no expertise WITHOUT ACCESS TO
POLITICAL INFLUENCE. Buying influence, as we consider corrupt, is normal
for China, Ukraine, and Russia...it fits their behavioral profile for
how, as Communist +/or authoritarian leaders, they assume they can wield
power. With their values, it is business as usual. Media don't cover
this, and focus only on the Bidens' behavior. Bidens' deals were
illicit, and they could not happen without the countries on the other
end of those deals, who are our enemies. My vote goes to those who will
stand up to China and protect us, so our economy can thrive and grow,
beyond the pandemic recovery. Most Americans are naive about leadership
power in differing economic systems, so are caught up in the back and
forth about the Bidens.
- Vote for lower taxes, not higher taxes, to speed economic recovery.
Biden's plan to greatly increase income, capital gains, and payroll
taxes for those over $400K in income, the JOB CREATORS, will cause them
to lay off more and hire fewer employees, harming small businesses and
causing massive job losses, especially for lower income earners and women,
both hit hardest by COVID. His pitch sounds good politically to those
without knowledge of economics, but is economically disastrous, typical
for the radical leftists behind him, who will, due to his early dementia
(sadly), push him aside and skew their actions to more economically
damaging socialist policies. Given the economic war against us from
without, we cannot risk being economically weakened within. Our first
national security line of defense is our economy!
what happens over the next several years with China and how they treat
us economically...keep your eyes open, and remember, we are Americans,
we can innovate, learn, grow strategies to protect ourselves, working
together, using our great innovative talents. We can re-grow our
economy, with strong economic leadership for private sector and small
business growth. Hopefully the U.S. and the world will hold China
accountable for the horrendous costs of the pandemic.
from last month: If you know anyone anxious or depressed, ask them, "Do
you really want to let China take you down? This is not your fault.
China did this to us. Do something positive today to strengthen yourself
and your life" . I find this helps people greatly, as they are
internalizing COVID as their fault. Again, see greenmedinfo.com for health info.
- Remember the CDC says only 6% of COVID deaths are due to COVID, 94% are from an average of 2.6 co-morbidities! (8/26) Pres. Trump tweeted this and Twitter took it down! The
media are still wielding the 100% number, false data! Take precautions
but do not buy into and live in exaggerated fear. Stay safe and well,
protect the vulnerable and live your life!
