Apple’s secret $275 Billion deal with China in 2016

Will the Greens give up their love of Apple when they hear how it effectively sold out its principles, tech secrets, and jobs to the Chinese Communist Party?  Apple is the world’s biggest company, a $3 Trillion giant. Yet in order to get into the worlds biggest new market, it looks like Apple sold out the nation and the civilization that bore it.

A week ago The Information reported on the secret $275 b deal with the CCP.

Anders Corr, The Epoch Times

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook inked a $275 billion giveaway in 2016 that explains the tech company’s success in China, according to secret documents reportedly seen by

To sweeten the negotiations, Cook apparently agreed to a $1 billion investment in Didi Global, Uber’s Chinese competitor, at a critical time in the fight between the two companies for ride-hailing market shares in China. A few days later, Apple agreed to spend $275 billion in China over five years, including on what should be considered forced technology development and transfer.

According to The Information’s Wayne Ma, the deal “committed Apple to aiding roughly a dozen causes favored by China,” including “a pledge to help Chinese manufacturers develop ‘the most advanced manufacturing technologies’ and ‘support the training of high-quality Chinese talents.’”

The pattern repeats

China took Manufacturing, then Tech and the West gave them away. Now it’s come for biotech…

China siphons off Western intellectual property, often with the help of the West.

First China hauled (and we gave) the factories, then it was the hi tech industry, now it’s biomedical ingenuity. The pattern repeats. China offered cheap labor for manufacturers and the tech industry with few annoying environmental burdens. Now China offers money and freedom from ethical quandaries for researchers who want to clone, create bioweapons, or hybrid human-animal cells.

As ZMan said about the biotech theft:

Most important, what we are seeing is what happens when a society decides that the value of everything is what someone will pay for it. In America, everything has a price, so nothing has value. The elites are happy to trade technology to China, because the only thing that matters is short term profit. From the Chinese perspective, the American empire is not a competitor. It is just a big candy store that she can systematically pick clean until it finally collapses. This is the war China knows it can win.

What would stop it?

If companies like Apple worried (before they sold out) that their entire brand-name would evaporate in all their current markets. If patriotism meant that all the hipster Gen Z’ers and lost corporate Millennials reacted in horror and abandoned their iphones, or the soft greens recoiled from the thought of owning a item made by a company that helped to hide Uygher slave camps?

Yet where is the media? Where are the righteous, indignant fashionistas? Is Greenpeace protesting?

Apple, Nike and Coke are all lobbying to prevent the US congress from making laws that would make it harder to get goods from Xinjiang unless companies can prove they did not use forced labor.

So Apple may think it bought a market in China, but really it paid to become a wing of the Communist Government.

According to a 2020 report from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), Apple is a beneficiary of Xinjiang’s forced labor transfer programs through Apple suppliers O-Film Technology and Foxconn.

We need a real media. But since we don’t have one, spread the word about Apple, and about The Epoch Times.
