In my recent Op-Ed at The American Spectator, I argue that the Trump Administration CANNOT make a deal with China on trade unless Washington wants to cede the technology war with China to Beijing.
My friend and colleague at the Gatestone Institute, Gordon G. Chang, interviewed me about the ongoing tech war and Chinese strategic ambitions in the high-tech field. Needless to say, China is a threat that seeks to displace the United States in the valuable high-tech space…and American policies may be helping China achieve just this.
The Chinese have a plan for global domination. Space plays a key role in their ambitions. Not only do they hope to become the seat of technological innovation and advancement, but Beijing also dreams of knocking the US from its dominant position in orbit by targeting US satellite constellations and by becoming the premiere power exploiting the natural resources of space.
The Hong Kong protesters are doomed. But, the West cannot ignore their fate or waver in support because President Xi Jinping is using Hong Kong as a testbed for what ultimately yearns to do in Taiwan.
The ability to design and manufacture advanced computer chips has yet to be mastered by China. It is the last major technological advantage the West has over China/. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) just undercut that advantage earlier this year. Things are about to get ugly, as I write in my column at The American Spectator.
In March, Brandon J. Weichert was interviewed by Gordon G. Chang of The Daily Beast to discuss his take on the ongoing conflict with China.
The Chinese are a great people with a rich history. They have known general dominance throughout their 4,000-year history. What’s more, as Deng Xiaoping said when the Soviet Union collapsed, China has been engaged in a second Cold War with the United States. They’ve been winning—and they will continue to do so unless we do more than what we’ve been doing to counter them.

Spengler writes in the Asia Times Online, “Rather than a tariff war, the world will face a disruption of the global supply chain, major dislocations in high-technology trade, shocks to pricing, and a return to national autarky in a number of economic policies. The result will be ugly in economic terms, and it will raise strategic tensions everywhere in the world. Hard to imagine an American policy initiative stupider than its attempt to export democracy to Iraq, this will go down as the dumbest thing America ever did.”
“Trump recognizes how unfairly our “partners” are treating us. He also exposed how insincere our trading partners were when they so readily declined his deal of true free trade. What’s more, he’s reinvigorating the image of the American president as a figure who commands–and deserves–the respect of foreign leaders, friend and foe alike.”
