A bit of triumphalism to warm the cockles...
Biden Just Clobbered China’s Chip Industry
“These technologies are going to be the foundation of economic strength over the next decades, and there are significant concerns about what the world would look like if China gained the upper hand,” Martijn Rasser, a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security, told me. “It wouldn’t be a world that I would want to live in, and I don’t think most Americans or most of our friends and allies would want to live in it either.”

U.S. Puts Sweeping Restrictions on China’s Access to Chip Technology
The new limits on the sale of semiconductors to China aim to cripple Beijing’s access to technologies needed for supercomputing and guiding weapons. The moves are the clearest sign yet that a dangerous standoff between the two major superpowers is increasingly playing out in the technological sphere.

fantastic series from the economist...


The Prince: Searching for Xi Jinping

A new podcast about China’s leader

Xi Jinping is the most powerful person in the world. But the real story of China’s leader remains a mystery. The Economist’s Sue-Lin Wong finds out how he rose to the top in a new podcast series.

At China’s 20th Communist Party congress in October Mr Xi is expected to ignore convention to secure a third term as party chief. He may rule China for the rest of his life.

This eight-part series is the epic story of Mr Xi’s turbulent past, how he has changed China and how he is trying to change the world.

pretty good article from brian wong...



Enough. Those of Us Caught in the Middle of U.S.-China Tensions Must Speak Up Now

It’s all very well for the governments of U.S. and China to demonize each other, but what about the people caught in the middle?

What might once have seemed like a precisely targeted rifle shot approach to sanctioning China now looks like a shotgun blast.

A cynic might wonder when the US government will pressure New Zealand to curtail exports of dairy products so that Chinese youngsters don’t grow up to be big strong soldiers. The serious question is, how and when will China retaliate?

Uh-huh.
Puerto Rico’s current situation benefits the US, which reaps billions of dollars by taxing imports to the island. American elites have begun settling in Puerto Rico to avoid federal income taxes. While exchanges on Puerto Rico’s political status are beginning to attract more media attention, it is very unlikely that authorities will change a dynamic that benefits the most powerful.

The Estado Libre Asociado lost a substantial portion of its powers with the imposition of the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act in 2016. Most economic policy is now controlled by the Financial Oversight and Management Board, a group of unelected officials appointed by the US president. Consequently, Puerto Ricans have grown apathetic towards elections. Voter turnout is decreasing, even as the annexationist-pro Estado Libre Asociado’s two-party dominance is being challenged by the emergence of new minority parties which seek to upset the status quo.

And here I thought that Pelosi should swing by Beijing and explain to the Chinese leadership how the Monroe Doctrine works.

Besides China and the USA have so much in common.   The USA supports the demographic flooding of the Western Sahara and the West Bank of the former Palestinian mandate.  China supports demographically flooding Tibet and Inner Mongolia.

See?  Marriage made in heaven.

The United States has accused five Chinese companies of violating sanctions against Russia by continuing to support Russia’s military, and took action this week to block them from buying American technology, the Commerce Department said. (...)

The addition of the Chinese companies to the export ban list followed a warning from Gina Raimondo, the secretary of commerce, who said in March that Chinese companies that defied U.S. restrictions against exporting to Russia could essentially be shut down. Companies that produce technology such as microchips that are made with American equipment and software can be crippled if they are added to the U.S. “entity list.”

The Chinese Embassy in Washington said on Wednesday that China and Russia were maintaining normal energy and trade cooperation and that China would take necessary measures to safeguard the rights of its companies.

“The unilateral sanctions and so-called ‘long-arm jurisdiction’ imposed by the U.S. on other countries in accordance with its domestic laws are against international law and basic norms governing international relations,” said Shao Hesong, a representative of the embassy.
