News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. April 12, 2019: No, it is not too soon. It is the right time to get in the ring.
There is going to be one Big Winner and One Big Loser, and there are only two players in this game to dominate the Future. China and the US!
Have you heard about the Future? It is where we are all going to live – some longer than others. But the Future is awaiting on all of us no matter your age.
China has a very real game plan – it even has a title “Made In China 2025.” All we have is Donald Trump, who believes is the past, and a bunch of Democrats without a Clue. Their vision of the future is impeaching Trump.
Here is the irony, and there is always irony, America has the perfect counter-punch to China 2025, an arbitrary year chosen by Xi for China to permanently pull ahead of the U.S.
We have 2026 – nothing arbitrary about 2026. 2026 is the 250th anniversary of American INDEPENDENCE!
Let’s deal with China first so you understand the stakes. They have a very real Master Plan titled “Made in China 2025” that they are working from right now; furiously as I write this episode.
Here is how the Council on Foreign Relations, a Major Think Tank describes China’s plan. “A state-led industrial policy that seeks to make China dominant in global high-tech manufacturing. The program aims to use government subsidies, mobilize state-owned enterprises, and pursue intellectual property acquisition to catch up with – and then surpass -Western technological prowess in advanced industries.”
In other words, a plan to CONTROL the world economy of the Future.
The Council continues its report …
“Washington argues that the policy relies on discriminatory treatment of foreign investment, forced technology transfers, intellectual property theft, and cyber espionage, leading President Donald J. Trump to levy tariffs on Chinese goods and block several Chinese-backed acquisitions of technology firms. Meanwhile, many other countries have tightened their oversight of foreign investment, intensifying debate over how best to respond to China’s behavior.”
Well good luck with that!
China does not play fair. It has always played dirty and it is why it has advanced so far and so fast in comparison to the West. But far worse is not what China will or won’t do, it is more about Trump and the Democrats as much who are playing DEFENCE, talking about slowing down China.
Here is a radical idea: WINNING against China with a better plan!
Read about China’s sophistication in the Foreign Relations report …
“Released in 2015, Made in China 2025 is the government’s 10-year plan to update China’s manufacturing base by rapidly developing ten high-tech industries. Chief among these are electric cars and other new energy vehicles, next-generation information technology (IT) and telecommunications, and advanced robotics and artificial intelligence.”
“Other major sectors include agricultural technology; aerospace engineering; new synthetic materials; advanced electrical equipment; emerging bio-medicine; high-end rail infrastructure; and high-tech maritime engineering”
“These sectors are central to the so-called fourth industrial revolution, which refers to the integration of big data, cloud computing, and other emerging technologies into global manufacturing supply chains.”
It is now 4 years later. 4 years China has been working on their plan and 4 years later there is not even any discussion about an American plan. Because in Obama and now Trump and those who came before them, we do not have Presidents or Congresses who think or operate strategically.
Our so-called leaders just limp from one issue and one crisis to another spending most of their time trying to undermine each other. As for the Democratic candidates for President they are part of the problem not the solution not remotely. Just listen to what they say and do. 2026 what’s that?
IMAGINE and that is all we can do imagine if all of them realized what a perfect opportunity that 2026 America’s 250th birthday is to make America not “great again” a retrograde slogan by a Dinosaur President named Trump but rather a call to battle to “make America much greater for the future.”
We don’t need an oppressive dictatorial fear-based regime as they have in China under Xi their oppressor to force support for Made in China 2026.
What we need is inspiring leadership to energize Americans and our industries and our institutions to rally around AMERICA 2026 and a much, much freer economy than in China for America to rally around a vision for ourselves and our nation in which 2026 serves our shared interest to take what our forbearers began 250 years ago in 1776 and prove to them and even more to ourselves and China and everyone else we will build upon those first 250 years in the coming years to make America better than ever!
The Chinse who have always lived under repressive regimes for thousands of years have nothing but fear to compare with our Spirit of 76. At that level, we WIN if only we still have the Spirit to do so.
It’s time to put up NOW!
I’m keeping this episode short. Let this message sink in. More to follow.
