Pompeo to Wisconsin Legislature: Be wary of China

Empower Wisconsin | Sept 24, 2020 

MADISON — In his historic address Wednesday to the Wisconsin state Legislature, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a clear warning about the efforts of China’s communist government interfering in U.S. business. 

State Senate President Roger Roth (R-Appleton) invited Pompeo to Wisconsin after China’s strange attempt to lobby the Legislature to pass a resolution praising China. The canned language from the ChiComms claimed that the government’s “action has been critical to the global fight against the epidemic, and China has adopted unprecedented and rigorous measures for disease control and prevention.” 

Roth did introduce a resolution, just not one the ChiComms would endorse. He asked the Senate to go on the record acknowledging “that the Communist Party of China deliberately and intentionally misled the world on the Wuhan Coronavirus.” 

Pompeo warned Wisconsin lawmakers of China’s “friendly relationships” with U.S. states and communities.  

“We see it all over in America in sister-city programs – like the ones in Door County, La Crosse, Milwaukee, and Richland Center. They fall under the authority of something called the Chinese People’s Association of Friendship with Foreign Countries. Sounds benign. But that group is part of China’s United Front Work Department – the CCP’s official overseas propaganda tool.  It’s one of the CCP’s three ‘Magic Weapons,’ in the words of Chairman Mao, along with ‘armed struggle’ and “party-building.’” Pompeo said. 

“In other words, it may have ‘friendly’ in its title, but it is not so when it comes to American interests.”
