Updated 11/8/20: Boycott Chicoms: Chinese-owned manufacturers/companies in America

Originally published April 28, 2020. Updated below.

Chicoms lied, people died.

Time to take action against China. Hit ’em where is hurt$.

Last summer I quit shopping at WalMart because 1) of their relationship with China and 2) their stance on open carry. They are a private company and can make their own business decisions as they see fit. Just as I can choose not to shop there.

We all have an opportunity to make a choice now: Do we support America or do we support the Chicoms and their companies?

Here’s a list of Chinese owned-companies that operate in America. I’m sure there are plenty more – feel free to let us know about them in the comments!

Smithfield Foods

From Wikipedia:

“Smithfield Foods, Inc., is a meat-processing company based in Smithfield, Virginia, in the United States, and a wholly owned subsidiary of WH Group of China. Founded in 1936 as the Smithfield Packing Company by Joseph W. Luter and his son, the company is the largest pig and pork producer in the world. In addition to owning over 500 farms in the US, Smithfield contracts with another 2,000 independent farms around the country to grow Smithfield’s pigs.

GE Appliances

From Wikipedia:

“GE Appliances is an appliance manufacturer based in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. It is majority owned by Haier. It is one of the largest appliance brands in the United States and manufactures appliances under a house of brands which include: GE, GE Profile, Café, Monogram, Haier and Hotpoint. On June 6, 2016, Haier & KKR acquired GE Appliances for $5.6 billion. Under the terms of the sale Haier would have the right to use the GE brand name until 2056.”

Haier Group Corporation is a multinational home appliances and consumer electronics company headquartered in Qingdao, China. It designs, develops, manufactures and sells products including refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, microwave ovens, mobile phones, computers, and televisions. The home appliances business, namely Haier Smart Home, has seven global brands – Haier, Casarte, Leader, GE Appliances, Fisher & Paykel, Aqua and Candy.”

AMC Theatres

From Wikipedia:

“AMC Theatres (originally an abbreviation for American Multi-Cinema; often referred to simply as AMC and known in some countries as AMC Cinemas or AMC Multi-Cinemas) is an American movie theater chain headquartered in Leawood, Kansas, and is the largest movie theater chain in the world. Wanda Group owns a 38% share in AMC. Wanda Group is a Chinese multinational conglomerate based in Beijing. It is a private property developer and owner of Wanda Cinemas and the Hoyts Group, as well as a majority shareholder of AMC Theatres.”

Motorola

From Wikipedia:

“Motorola Mobility LLC, marketed as simply Motorola, is an American consumer electronics and telecommunications subsidiary company owned by Chinese technology firm Lenovo. The company primarily manufactures smartphones and other mobile devices running the Android operating system developed by Google.”

There’s a lot more companies that the Chicoms have been acquiring. See more here.

Updated 11/8/20: Add the following company and their products to your #BoycottChicoms list: SharkNinja.

SharkNinja is a distributor of home devices and appliances based in in Needham, Massachusetts. SharkNinja was acquired by CDH Private Equity in 2017.

SharkNinja produces some VERY popular products including the Ninja air fryer and Shark vacuum cleaners.

Guess who owns CDH Private Equity?

Yep, the Chicoms!

You have the power to choose with your American dollar$. Unfortunately, if the demorats/media/Big Tech get THEIR power, we may have no choice.

Tech Giants loom up as a threat to freedom

We have watched as software and media platforms we all use have morphed into a multi-headed monster.

I have enjoyed using all these things as tools vital to business and communication. But now we see them all overreaching their rights and authority to seize power over the people who use them.

Google and Apple conspire in secret pact to control the Internet

Google is a behemoth, controlling as much as 92% of internet web searches worldwide.

Finally, on October 20, 2020, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and 11 states filed a lawsuit against Google for violating anti-trust laws — the U.S. government’s biggest antitrust case in two decades.

It is noteworthy that all 11 states are red states in the 2016 presidential election: Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, South Carolina, and Texas. The other states must not care about Google being a monopoly that stifles and impedes competition. 

The DOJ’s press release of October 20, 2020 says:

As one of the wealthiest companies on the planet with a market value of $1 trillion, Google is the monopoly gatekeeper to the internet for billions of users and countless advertisers worldwide. For years, Google has accounted for almost 90 percent of all search queries in the United States and has used anticompetitive tactics to maintain and extend its monopolies in search and search advertising.

As alleged in the Complaint, Google has entered into a series of exclusionary agreements that collectively lock up the primary avenues through which users access search engines, and thus the internet, by requiring that Google be set as the preset default general search engine on billions of mobile devices and computers worldwide and, in many cases, prohibiting preinstallation of a competitor….

The Complaint alleges that Google’s anticompetitive practices have had harmful effects on competition and consumers. Google has foreclosed any meaningful search competitor from gaining vital distribution and scale, eliminating competition for a majority of search queries in the United States. By restricting competition in search, Google’s conduct has harmed consumers by reducing the quality of search (including on dimensions such as privacy, data protection, and use of consumer data), lessening choice in search, and impeding innovation. By suppressing competition in advertising, Google has the power to charge advertisers more than it could in a competitive market and to reduce the quality of the services it provides them. Through filing the lawsuit, the Department seeks to stop Google’s anticompetitive conduct and restore competition for American consumers, advertisers, and all companies now reliant on the internet economy.

In particular, the DOJ’s antitrust lawsuit targets a secret deal between Google and Apple, worth billions of dollars to both companies, by making Google the primary search engine on Apple’s devices.

According to the New York Times, the secret pact was first inked 15 years ago and has rarely been discussed by either company. 3½ years ago, Google and Apple renegotiated and renewed the secret deal, symbolized by the chief executives of the two companies, Google’s Sundar Pichai and Apple’s Tim Cook, having dinner together at an upscale Vietnamese restaurant, Tamarine, in Silicon Valley in Palo Alto, CA.

From the NYT:

Nearly half of Google’s search traffic now comes from Apple devices, according to the Justice Department….

Apple now receives an estimated $8 billion to $12 billion in annual payments — up from $1 billion a year in 2014 — in exchange for building Google’s search engine into its products. It is probably the single biggest payment that Google makes to anyone and accounts for 14 to 21 percent of Apple’s annual profits….

[A] senior Apple employee wrote to a Google counterpart that “our vision is that we work as if we are one company,” according to the Justice Department’s complaint.

A forced breakup could mean the loss of easy money to Apple. But it would be a more significant threat to Google, which would have no obvious way to replace the lost traffic….

The deal is not limited to searches in Apple’s Safari browser; it extends to virtually all searches done on Apple devices, including with Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri, and on Google’s iPhone app and Chrome browser.

A lucrative “secret pact”.

If the deal between Google and Apple were legitimate, there would be no need for secrecy.

The dictionary defines conspiracy as a “plot”; “an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons.

But we are told there are no conspiracies, and that those who think there are conspiracies are tinfoil hat-wearing “conspiracy theorists”….

Project Veritas exposes Google: Program manager confirms election interference in favor of Biden search “skewed by owners and drivers of the algorithm”

Just a confirmation of what we already knew was happening.

Hopefully both these medias will still be up when my blog post is published. But you never know. Twitter, YouTube and all of Big Tech have gone ALL IN to elect Biden. That includes silencing any one who exposes their censorship activities.

Why Big Tech wants to access your medical records

No surprise that this is happening.

And no surprise why people feel less inclined to share with their doctors any true information about their medical status (think VA).

Another Google Whistleblower

Current Sr. Google Engineer Goes Public on Camera: Tech is “dangerous,” “taking sides”

by Staff Report

  • Insider: “It’s time to decide, do we run the technology, or does the technology run us?”
  • “I really don’t buy the idea that big tech is politically neutral.”
  • “Are we going to just let the biggest tech companies decide who wins every election from now on?”
  • “I look at search and I look at Google News and I see what it’s doing and I see Google executives go to Congress and say that it’s not manipulated. It’s not political. And I’m just so sure that’s not true.”
  • “I have a PhD, I have five years’ experience at Google and I just know how algorithms are. They don’t write themselves. We write them to do what we want them to do.”
