China's Rise As A Superpower - Warning To America

China's influence is rising rapidly in the world, from its expanding economic and technological prowess to its growing military might. From its ambitious Belt and Road Initiative to its investments in cutting-edge artificial intelligence, China is a major force in the global economy. In this video, we explore how China is exerting its influence around the world, and what it means for the future of international relations. We'll look at the implications of China's growing power in the fields of trade, finance, security, and diplomacy, as well as its implications for the rest of the world. We'll also examine the potential risks and opportunities that could arise from China's rising influence. Join us as we take a closer look at the implications of China's rise in the world.

In recent months, the navies of the US and its diplomatic allies have sailed regularly through Asia Pacific waters – including the South China Sea and Taiwan Strait – to assert navigational rights in international waters.

In October, the US announced AUKUS — a new security alliance with the UK and Australia — that will lead to Australia acquiring nuclear-powered submarines from the United States.

Rapid naval expansion
The PLA’s ground force has traditionally been China’s foundation for asserting power in the region. It took the lead recently with India at the two countries’ Himalayan border, for instance.

In 2021, the Department of Defense published a report to Congress titled "Military and Security Developments Involving the People's Republic of China", which analyses the relative strength of the Chinese and Taiwanese militaries in depth.

The Secret Chinese Company That Owns Everything

The Secret Chinese Company That Owns Everything

The INSANE story of Tencent - a controversial MagnatesMedia business movie looking at one of the most valuable companies in the world. This business has many accusations against it - from being used for surveillance and censorship, to anti-competitive monopolistic business strategies & crushing the competition. It's a crazy rags to riches entrepreneurial story, going from only $1000 and the brink of bankruptcy to becoming one of the richest most powerful companies ever. This is the rise and fall of a business empire. This is the untold history of Tencent.

If you look at the world’s most valuable companies, you won’t be surprised to find the likes of Apple, Microsoft, and Google. But one name does stand out: Tencent. The company is worth more than the likes of Facebook, Mastercard, and Samsung, and yet if you asked the majority of people what Tencent does, you’d be met with a confused look. The truth, is that Tencent does everything. Because whilst Tecent’s mascot is a friendly-looking penguin - a more accurate animal to embody this conglomerate would be a giant octopus, with tentacles reaching into almost every industry you can think of, all over the world. Whether you realize it or not, you almost certainly use products or services Tencent is involved with.

However in Tencent’s home country of China, it’s a very different story; everyone is aware that Tencent dominates their lives. And that’s because in China, Tencent has achieved the seemingly impossible: one app to rule them all. Tencent created an app called WeChat that's been dubbed ‘the everything app’ because almost all of China’s 1.4 billion population use this app for an average of 4 hours every day, more than the average American user spends on all social media apps combined.

And the reason people in China use WeChat so much is because it’s basically every app you can think of rolled into one. Its essentially Facebook, PayPal, Whatsapp, Netflix, Google, Spotify, Uber, Yelp, Tinder, Zoom, YouTube, Deliveroo, Amazon and lots lots more all in one single app. You pay your bills through it, call your friends through it, and essentially live your entire life through it. However one single company having access to literally all your data - from your exact location to your entire bank history to every message and call and search you’ve ever made - it’s a lot. And then it gets worse when you realize that the line between where Tencent ends and the Chinese government begins, is blurry. Meaning, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has access to all that information as well, making WeChat one of the most powerful surveillance tools ever.

Plus, private messages and images that are sent through Tencent’s apps like WeChat are scanned to see if they need to be censored - if you say anything the Chinese government doesn’t want you to, you could end up in jail, or disappear. The Chinese government has even openly confirmed that it can access deleted WeChat conversations.

Tencent has used its vast wealth and resources to expand into many industries. They are also the largest gaming company in the world - with revenue significantly higher than any competitor. Gaming is just one of countless different industries Tencent operates in. Also Tencent’s Payments division is nearly as big as PayPal’s entire business. And its reported WeChatPay generates over 1 billion payment transactions per day - more than Visa and Mastercard. But it’s only recently that the West has started to realise the influence Tencent - and thus China - actually have... In this business documentary, we'll answer questions like: What is Tencent? What does Tencent do? How did Tencent and other Chinese businesses get so big?

A lot has been posted about China. The transformation China has undergone in the last 40 years is remarkable. For many in the West it can be truly difficult to comprehend how much China has developed while the West has fallen into a decline, which is, when one is being honest, mostly if not wholly, self inflicted. More information keeps being produced as people who have lived there make videos and write articles to try and tell people in the West about China. Some point out how they believe it will be very difficult for the West to come to terms with this because for the past two centuries the West has basically lived with the idea that they are the best and around the world, they have basically gotten their way but now that is no longer seen to be the case. How will the West react, to being faced with losing place, losing influence and even to a great extent losing its relevance, are questions some people who have seen China, are asking. In one interview that was seen from around 2012, it was put forward that the West may react by becoming more aggressive as a result. Even Trump tried to tell people about China.

Trump LOVES China

US politicians talk about trying to contain China, despite that eventuality seeming more and more unlikely by the day. Countries around the world, especially in Africa, South America and Asia Pacific regions are choosing to have China as a business partner above the West. Many also point out how the West does not understand China and how China works. Further, one researcher pointed out that in China, government is highly competent while in the West, its not. It is also interesting to know how the idea of trust works within the Chinese society, and to find out that it is said to be the central focus of Chinese Confucian philosophy, that puts the idea of trust (of self, family, company, network, system, country, world and then, universe) at the centre of their thinking. Chinese society is much more collectivist vs Western society that is individualist. They also believe in the "mandate of heaven" concept, which seems to mean that if the rulers do not do what is considered best for the people, and/or lose virtue, etc. and it gets bad enough, then the people have the right to revolt against them. This is stated to be a part of their philosophy, and therefore Chinese rulers have that pressure on them. Therefore, the way people think in Chinese society is very different from how people think in Western society, and that has not really been known by most in the West. But now, there is a lot of new information being put out as people are able to make and post videos, etc. and information is able to spread via the Internet.

Agreed. Wholly inflicted by design.

It seems that living with the idea (or assumption) of being "the best" and having a sense of entitlement has over time led to so much hubris and arrogance (and greed) that it ends up producing the opposite effect. The Bible teaches to have humility, but we can see how much of Western culture (and especially the politicians) have all but completely thrown humility out of the window and of course, not keeping God's Law. And now, we can start to see the result of this. Self inflicted decline and what many may perceive to be a "rude awakening".

China’s Xi Set to Consolidate Control as Legislature Convenes

Chinese leader Xi Jinping is expected to increase his already unassailable power after the country’s rubber-stamp legislature, the National People’s Congress, convenes Sunday.

The gathering represents the most important political event in Beijing since October’s National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party, held every five years, which saw Xi consolidate his control over the party and become the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao Zedong.

The legislative session that opens Sunday will enable Xi to finish the job by consolidating his control over China’s government institutions.

China’s legislature meets for one or two weeks each spring to outline the nation’s policy direction and set economic targets for the year ahead. With this session being the first since last fall’s party congress, it has the added role of installing new government leaders and announcing a restructuring of state institutions, which is expected to be extensive.

Most decisions that will be announced were made in advance by top Chinese Communist Party leaders in closed-door meetings. The agenda was finalized earlier this week at the second plenary session of the CCP Central Committee, a group of over 300 of the most senior party officials. For this reason, observers will closely monitor the session for any indication of a change in Xi’s standing.

This year’s legislative session comes at a critical time for China. The past four months have seen nationwide protests and a public health crisis caused by the sudden abandonment of Xi’s signature “zero-COVID” policy. They also witnessed growing economic headwinds, from skyrocketing local government debt and youth unemployment to a near-collapse of the housing market.

The Chinese Communist Party’s stubborn insistence on draconian “zero-COVID” lockdowns through most of 2022 resulted in the government’s reporting just 3% growth in gross domestic product. This likely-inflated figure is a far cry from the goal of 5.5% growth announced at last year’s legislative session, and represents one of the worst annual growth rates reported since China began partially opening its economy in the late 1970s.

Xi’s role in these policy failures is no secret among China’s political elite and informed public.

The unprecedented economic and social challenges facing China’s leadership almost certainly will be a central focus of the legislative session. China watchers will parse outgoing Premier Li Keqiang’s work report for indications of how the Chinese government aims to address these issues.

Of particular interest will be the economic growth target, which likely will be set at somewhere between 5% and 6%. The government rarely sets targets it doesn’t expect to meet. Thus, a 6% target would indicate that the government is confident the worst of the economic troubles are behind it.

Independent of the policy takeaways, all indications are that the challenges facing China have not had any significant impact on Xi’s standing within the Chinese Communist Party.

Indeed, Xi’s preeminent role and the need for government officials to rally around his leadership were central themes of the communique released following the Central Committee’s plenum last month. This communique, as well as other clues from recent state media discourse, indicate that Xi’s power will be consolidated further during the legislative session.

One way Xi will consolidate power is through personnel appointments. Those appointed during the legislative session will be responsible for overseeing the government’s day-to-day operations.

Although the Chinese Communist Party sets high-level priorities, it is up to government organizations to develop and implement the specific policies designed to achieve the party’s objectives. For this reason, the personalities and political loyalties of those leading government institutions have significant implications for Xi’s ability to push through his agenda.

The legislative session almost certainly will see Xi reappointed to a third term as China’s president, following his reappointment to the more important roles of CCP general secretary and Central Military Commission chairman during the party congress.

In addition, one of his closest confidants, Li Qiang, will be appointed as premier, and many of the vice premiers, state councillors, and heads of key ministries and departments are likely to be Xi loyalists. Essentially, the most senior of these appointments were locked up at the party congress in October and would be difficult to change even if powerful voices within the CCP wanted to dissent.

A second way Xi is set to strengthen his grip on China is through institutional restructuring. It is common for some degree of reorganization to occur at the legislative session after a party congress, but the changes likely will be particularly notable this time around.

State-run media report that a “wide-ranging” restructuring of China’s government and party organizations will occur. While details are few, what little has been revealed indicates that the reorganization will strengthen the Chinese Communist Party’s control over the government. As the strongest CCP leader in decades, Xi stands to be the primary beneficiary of every step toward greater party control over the bureaucracy.

Ultimately, the personnel appointments, institutional restructuring, and policy direction announced during the annual legislative session will help to operationalize the CCP-centric vision Xi presented during last year’s party congress.

Contrary to the expectations of some, and the hopes of many, Xi will emerge from this session even more powerful than he already is.


China’s Warning: WW III If US Keeps Bullying The World

Posted on February 22, 2023 by horse237

The following warning that continuation of US hegemony will result in war between the US and China is an official statement from the Foreign Ministry of the People’s Republic of China: Link is below.


Since becoming the world’s most powerful country after the two world wars and the Cold War, the United States has acted more boldly to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, pursue, maintain and abuse hegemony, advance subversion and infiltration, and willfully wage wars, bringing harm to the international community.

The United States has developed a hegemonic playbook to stage “color revolutions,” instigate regional disputes, and even directly launch wars under the guise of promoting democracy, freedom and human rights. Clinging to the Cold War mentality, the United States has ramped up bloc politics and stoked conflict and confrontation. It has overstretched the concept of national security, abused export controls and forced unilateral sanctions upon others. It has taken a selective approach to international law and rules, utilizing or discarding them as it sees fit, and has sought to impose rules that serve its own interests in the name of upholding a “rules-based international order.”

This report, by presenting the relevant facts, seeks to expose the U.S. abuse of hegemony in the political, military, economic, financial, technological and cultural fields, and to draw greater international attention to the perils of the U.S. practices to world peace and stability and the well-being of all peoples.

On Monday, China announced export controls on two rare earth metals, gallium and germanium, starting on August 1. These critical rare earth metals are used in microchip production. On Wednesday, a former top Chinese official was quoted by state media as saying export controls on rare earth metals are "just the beginning."

Former vice-minister of commerce Wei Jianguo spoke with China Daily and said Beijing has plenty of tools for countermeasures if the Biden administration continues to ramp up technology restrictions. He said the decision to restrict the export of gallium and germanium would "cause panic in certain countries, but also exert heavy pain in them."

Wei said: "This is just the beginning of China's countermeasures, and China's toolbox has many more types of measures available. If the high-tech restrictions on China become tougher in the future, China's countermeasures will also escalate."

China's export restrictions on gallium and germanium is just the beginning, and the country has more tools for countermeasures if Washington plans tougher technology restrictions on Beijing, said Wei Jianguo, former vice-minister of commerce.

Wei said in an exclusive interview with China Daily that the decision to restrict the export of industrial products and materials containing gallium and germanium has been made after thoughtful consideration, which will not only cause panic in certain countries, but also exert heavy pain in them.

The comments came after China's Ministry of Commerce said on Monday that the country will impose export restrictions starting on August 1 to protect its national security and interests. Gallium and germanium are important raw materials for the semiconductor industry.

Wei said: "This is just the beginning of China's countermeasures, and China's tool box has many more types of measures available. If the high-tech restrictions on China become tougher in the future, China's countermeasures will also escalate."

Foreign media including the Wall Street Journal quoted anonymous sources as saying that the US plans to place tougher restrictions on AI chip exports to China.

"Any attempt to promote decoupling through hegemonism, including suppressing Chinese enterprises, will ultimately be a stone thrown at one's own feet," Wei said.

From one colonial master to another; China’s ongoing takeover of Africa and its natural resources

By Rhoda Wilson on May 14, 2024

For years, China has been playing its own part in a neo-colonial struggle for influence in Africa. Rather than seeking a military footprint on the continent as, for example, the US has done, China has been engaged in “chequebook diplomacy.”

The Secret Battle for resource rich Africa isn’t over yet, James Corbett writes. In fact, it’s just getting underway.

To Be Continued …

This is the point at which I’d usually tie everything in a nice little bow and summarise what we’ve learned today. But if you’ve made it this far, you know that there is no conclusion to The Secret Battle for Africa yet. In fact, it’s just getting underway.

All I know for sure is that the people of Africa will continue to suffer as their mis-leaders sell out the continent and its riches to the highest bidders. And the age-old game of colonial conquest continues on.

Stay tuned . . .
