The U.S. government on Thursday (Feb 13, 2020) filed new charges against Huawei, accusing the Chinese tech giant of a scheme to steal the intellectual property of U.S. companies. To minimize any additional damage to the company’s already strained image, Huawei sent out its Chief Security Officer — Andy Purdy.

From an interview with Andy Purdy: In response to Andy’s attempt to downgrade a back door to a simple vulnerability :
All equipment has vulnerabilities. That’s different than an intentional malicious back door, Maria, and you know that.
All equipment has vulnerability? All equipment does not have back doors to the Chinese communist government. Why do you have so many back doors going to the Chinese government, the communist government, so that anybody’s data is out there and goes right back to the Chinese government? We know this. Huawei is a Chinese company.
Very good interview. Maria was on fire, and I saw smoke coming out of Andy’s ears.
Does Chinese telecom giant Huawei have ties to the People’s Liberation Army?
Jan Jekielek sits down with Steve Bannon to discuss how the Chinese communist elites have gained power and wealth through access to Western capital and technology and used that power to stifle dissent and advance their self-serving global ambitions.
Steve Bannon is former White House chief strategist to President Donald Trump and former executive chairman of Breitbart News. He is also the Co-Founder of the Committee on the Present Danger: China.
The Chinese government lets western businesses open factories in China. Western companies like it because labor is cheap.
The Chinese government asks western businesses to transfer their technology to Chinese partners. (In many sectors, Beijing will only let foreign firms operate through joint ventures in which Chinese partners have the majority stake.)
The Chinese partners of western businesses use newly acquired technology to create “their product,” and manufacture it using laborers trained by, guess who, western businesses.
The Chinese partners of western businesses export “new” cheaper product all over the world, creating competition for other western companies.
Other western businesses, which don’t have factories in China, can’t compete. They ask the Chinese government for permission to open a factory in China.
The Chinese government lets other western businesses open factories in China. The western companies like it because labor is cheap.
Rinse and repeat. As many times as possible.
