• In an unusual move, the U.S. State Department sent out several tweets in a row today to explain why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) poses a real threat, which implies that U.S. foreign policy toward Communist China will change completely.
o The content was mainly taken from Secretary Mike Pompeo’s speech at Georgia Tech Wednesday, which outlined the CCP’s strategic approach to the U.S. The former spy chief explained in detail how the CCP has been stealing American ideas, squelching free inquiry, and spreading its own ideology to the U.S. and the world. Communist “China is working to take down freedom all across the world.”
o In addition, in one of the tweets, it said: “ We have to work together to continue the Transatlantic awakening to the China challenge, in the interest of preserving our free societies, our prosperity, and our future.” This shows that many countries around the world are aware of the CCP threat and future action or military action is inevitable.
• The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) declined to participate in the virtual Military Maritime Consultative Agreement (MMCA) Work Group and Flag Officer Plenary session with U.S. Indo-Pacific Command scheduled for Dec. 14-16, 2020.
o The U.S. and Communist China have met regularly since 1998 to conduct the MMCA dialogue as a consultation mechanism to strengthen military maritime safety, improve operational safety in the air and sea, and reduce risk between our two militaries. This exchange is an agreed-upon event in the U.S.-PRC 2020 defense engagement plan.
o The CCP/Communist China has always failed to honor agreements. All nations pursuing agreements with them should proceed with caution. o The deliberate absence without prior notice may be a warning to the Trump administration from the CCP.
o President Trump recently just appointed Mr. Christopher C. Miller as the Acting Secretary of Defense. And the U.S. election is still up in the air. The CCP probably also plans to open the MMCA dialogue until Joe Biden moves to the Whitehouse and Biden administration comes to power.
• President Trump advisor, Dr. Peter Navarro, released a new report today which provides a comprehensive, objective assessment of the fairness and integrity of the 2020 election, obtained through evidence including more than 50 lawsuits around the nation, thousands of affidavits and testimonies, published analyses, media reports, and more.
o Mr. Lu De believes this report is very significant. It is a report that Dr. Navarro has issued in his personal capacity as a well-known economist. And regardless of the election outcome, this report will become a record of true history, just like Dr. Yan’s reports on the CCP virus.
