The list of names includes the outgoing U.S. Secretary Pompeo, former White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
On January 21, 2021, in the early hours of Thursday Beijing time, the same day as it’s Wednesday in Washington D.C., just minutes after the U.S. swore in a new administration under Biden, the Global Times released an article to announce that China’s Foreign Ministry imposes sanctions on 28 US individuals for violating China’s sovereignty.
The list of names includes the outgoing U.S. Secretary Pompeo, and a dozen of the Trump Administration officials. Others on the list are former Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, former National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien, former Assistant Secretary Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs David R. Stilwell, former U.N. ambassador Kelly Craft, former national security adviser John Bolton, former White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
The sanctions prohibit the individuals and their immediate family members from entering mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao. They are also restricted from doing business with China, as are any companies or institutions associated with them.
Pompeo wrote in his tweet today, “It has been an honor to serve as the U.S. Secretary of State. Today, as I step down from this role as our nation’s top diplomat, I am proud of what we achieved – and I promise to never stop fighting for America # AmericaFirst.”
It remains unclear how the Sanctions will affect the listed U.S. individuals, while it’s clearly known that the Global Times is the mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party. However, Bolton took it a “great news”, and appeared to celebrate the sanction against him, calling it “I accept this prestigious recognition of my unrelenting efforts to defend American freedom,” as he wrote in a tweet he posted Wednesday afternoon.
The Global Times quoted the statement of China’s Foreign Ministry that “over the past few years, some anti-China politicians in the United States, out of their selfish political interests and prejudice and hatred against China and showing no regard for the interests of the Chinese and American people, have planned, promoted and executed a series of crazy moves which have gravely interfered in China’s internal affairs, undermined China’s interests, offended the Chinese people, and seriously disrupted China-U.S. relations. The Chinese government is firmly resolved to defend China’s national sovereignty, security and development interests. China has decided to sanction 28 persons who have seriously violated China’s sovereignty and who have been mainly responsible for such U.S. moves on China-related issues. They include Michael R. Pompeo, Peter K. Navarro, Robert C. O’Brien, David R. Stilwell, Matthew Pottinger, Alex M. Azar II, Keith J. Krach, and Kelly D. K. Craft of the Trump administration as well as John R. Bolton and Stephen K. Bannon. These individuals and their immediate family members are prohibited from entering the mainland, Hong Kong and Macao of China. They and companies and institutions associated with them are also restricted from doing business with China.”
Many people familiar with the CCP’s propaganda immediately realized that the Global Times began turning black to white again. In fact, since the founding of the Chinese Communist Party, it has never intended to live in peace with any country. In order to maintain its power, the BGY, 3F plan are implemented with the purpose of embezzling, exploiting, and corrupting other countries’ technology, treasury, and government. After Xi Jinping took office, he has intensified the evilness of the CCP to an extreme level. He not only altered the constitution, suppressed the speech, launched the Cultural Revolution 2.0, but also developed and released biochemical weapons-the Covid-19 (CCP virus), which has currently infected nearly 100 million people worldwide, more than two million people have died of it. The executive orders issued by President Trump are to protect the interests of the people throughout the world. There won’t be peace on earth until the CCP is eliminated.
From Pompeo, Navarro, O’Brien, Stilwell, to Mr. Bannon, does anyone of these U.S. officials have any of their families, investment, or business in China? If not, what is the point of sanctions? China under the ruling of the CCP is full of barbarians: civilization is abolished, corruption is rampant, resources are exhausted. The top officials within the Communist Party sent their children to live overseas yet brainwash the Chinese people to believe that “your father and mother are second to the Communist Party in your life.” A regime of total lies has no future.
