The 2020's will be remembered as a time of war (soft and actual):
The Chinese company Huawei, the world’s largest telecommunications equipment maker, has close ties to the Chinese Communist Party
(CCP) and the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), Bannon noted, and it is vying for control of 5G
, the fifth generation of cellular mobile communications.
“The backbone of the future of technology is 5G,” Bannon said in an interview with The Epoch Times’ program “American Thought Leaders.”
“Right now, the path that Huawei’s taking, as a front for the PLA, is to basically take over the networks and the components throughout the world.
If we allow this to happen even for a couple more years, Huawei is going to control basically the communications systems of the West, and therefore will be able to control the West.”
Under the laws in communist China
, companies have to cooperate with Chinese authorities and grant access to data when asked. U.S. legislators have highlighted the fact that Huawei equipment could be used by Beijing to engage in espionage or disrupt communication networks.
“Huawei has a methodology, a high-tech methodology to basically have domination over the world,” Bannon said. In his view, Huawei expanded its business largely under the radar for years.
It now operates in more than 170 countries across the globe and serves more than 3 billion people, according to the Huawei website.
Huawei, Bannon said, isn’t a “fine corporate citizen,” as they would have people believe. Instead, “it’s a branch of the People’s Liberation Army. It’s an intelligence branch.”
The Culpability of Corporate AmericaThe indictments of Meng and Huawei speak of decades-long abuses,
so “why did both the Bush and the Obama administration kind of look the other way, while investigators at the Department of Justice and other places were pursuing this?” Bannon said.
“Every administration, every president of both political parties,” he said, has “folded when it came into the spotlight with the Chinese” and allowed the Chinese communist regime to freely renege on its promises.
In Bannon’s view, the crux of the problem was the marriage of corporate America and the CCP.
“Here’s the analogy I make: Wall Street is the investor relations department for the Chinese Communist Party, because they’re the ones that raise capital for them. The corporations are the lobbyists,” Bannon said.“The tragedy and the crime,” in Bannon’s view, are the corporate elites who have knowingly chosen to look the other way in the face of egregious human rights abuses in China.
“They know all of it, and they don’t care.” Involvement with the Chinese regime “means more money. It means higher stock prices. It means lower slave labor [costs],” Bannon said.
“Wall Street’s the cheerleader. And corporate America has been the lobbyist.”
“They have no moral authority. They have totally bought into a system that’s completely corrupt, and they know all about it,” Bannon said. Yet, they “mock Donald Trump and say, oh, he’s the barbarian. He’s the wild man. He’s the disruptor to the system.”
In the end, Bannon said, “the blood and guilt is on their hands,”
because they sought to profit from a close relationship with the Chinese ruling regime.
“And it’s the working men and women in the middle class in this country [who] have paid the price,” Bannon said.
“Over the past 20 years, we’ve de-industrialized the United States, and we shipped those manufacturing jobs to China,” Bannon said. And in return, “they sent in the opioids and the fentanyl to go into the old manufacturing areas in Ohio and Pennsylvania and Michigan.” Former manufacturing workers, mired in depression and hopelessness about future job prospects, have been especially vulnerable to this influx of drugs from China.
“This is not just a crisis. It’s a tragedy of the United States,” Bannon said.
Wall Street and the corporate elites are “going to be held accountable by history for what went on in this time and place, what went on in China, and what they knew about and looked the other way.”
, the central reason he’s president is this: He said, we have to return America to her former greatness. We have to make America great again. And the way we’re going to do that [is] we’re going to confront the [CCP]. Wall Street has shipped those jobs over there, and I am going to bring them back,” Bannon said."Money is the evil force that will lead the people of the world to destruction." (Our Lady, October 1949)
