Chinese steal U.S. technologies – Santa Barbara News-Press


Mar 18, 2023


Did You Know
By Bonnie Donovan

In final week’s column, we warned of the Chinese government’s infiltration of America. 

The day suitable soon after we released the column, we received a report on how, by way of espionage in American corporations, the Chinese military had been in a position to make their fifth generation of a fighter plane. This is the Chinese J20, constructed by copying the technologies in the U.S. F-22 Raptor. It is considerable to know that America has below no situations sold F-22 raptors to any other nation. 

The Chinese theft of American secret technologies occurred suitable right here in America.

The crucial designers and suppliers of the F-22 Raptor have been Lockheed Martin and Boeing, with hundreds of sub-element suppliers.

China concentrated for ten years on stealing the technologies in the F-22, and they have been astoundingly prosperous. By carrying out so, they have been in a position to narrow the technologies gap in involving America and China by ten to 15 years.

On the subject of new technologies, Did You Know? was exposed to the power of a mixture of artificial intelligence technologies, coupled with a lot of drones. We found how this mixture can replace human efforts for each and every amazing and evil. 

A.I. and drone technologies are building fast. When not feasible at present, envision the day when four large container ships — with genuine papers and controlled by artificial intelligence — are cruising hundreds of miles apart outdoors American territorial waters, along the American Pacific and Atlantic coasts. 

At two a.m., the doors of their containers open. From each and every ship, hundreds of A.I.-controlled drones rise and fly extra than all the crucial East Coast and West Coast cities. Boston, New York, Washington, Miami, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego. What will the drones present to the millions of people living there?  

Many balloons can fly, undetected, across American airspace. How about four ships in two pairs, hundreds of miles apart on two oceans, hidden amongst hundreds of other persons?

On 1 extra matter, a reader of Did You Know? dropped off a copy of 46 pages of really detailed, inquiries that are definitely intrusive of private privacy, referred to as “The American Neighborhood Survey,” which they received in the mail.

It is performed by the Census Bureau and is mandated by your U.S. government that the recipients are, by law, anticipated to respond.

Did You Know? does not know the full use to which the collected details will be spot. It could correctly be a test for such as these inquiries in future, full census surveys.

Not only are recipients anticipated to reveal the most private details of their private lives, but they are also anticipated to ascertain themselves by name.

Failure to total and return the survey or to provide inaccurate answers will outcome in heavy fines.

This is not a census survey, in that it has been sent only to 3 million households, out of 123.six million in America, but it is at present suitable right here in Santa Barbara.

Hope that you do not get 1 specific.

This survey is created not only to ascertain you but also to probe into each and every and each and every aspect of your life and your resident family’s life. Your life histories, your employment, and your total financial circumstance are all incorporated, and a lot extra.

If this is a test for a total census, the government could have all the details crucial to set up a social credit strategy to handle particular person behavior, equivalent to that now in spot in China.

Did You Know? was also forwarded Pepperdine University’s new promotional video that the Malibu college released at its existing 25th anniversary. It traits Ronald Reagan in 1976 when he was asked to generate a letter to be opened in 1 hundred years. Confirm out the promotional video, “Shaping the Planet for the Subsequent 1 hundred Years,” on Pepperdine’s YouTube channel — youtube.com/watch?v=P5tCYePzOzA&ampfeature=youtu.be.

I invite you to take a handful of minutes (just three!) to watch the video, which begins with a familiar voice.

This quick video is mainly primarily based on 1 specific of Mr. Reagan’s most properly-identified radio addresses from September 1976.  Pepperdine 1st found about this text by reading Mr. Reagan’s words in “In His Private Hand” — a book co-edited by 1 specific of the university’s newest faculty members, Dr. Kiron Skinner. 

President Reagan was asked to generate a letter to be spot into a time capsule to be opened in 2076 in Los Angeles. He was asked to mention in the letter some of the most important troubles confronting the United States in 1976.

What he wrote in 1976 (47 years ago) could be at present.  

Beneath are elements of what he talked about.

“Think about it for a minute.

“What do you spot in a letter that is going to be study 1 hundred years from now — in the year 2076? The people who will study it ‘will be living in the planet we helped to shape.’

“Will they study the letter with gratitude in their hearts for what we did, or will they be bitter for the purpose that the heritage we left them was 1 specific of human misery?”

“The greatest difficulty the United States faced in 1976 was the choice in involving continuing the policies of the final 40 years that have led to bigger and bigger government, a lot significantly less and a lot significantly less liberty, redistribution of earnings by way of confiscatory taxation, or attempting to get back on the original course set for us by the Founding Fathers.

“Will we choose out fiscal duty, restricted government and freedom of choice for all our people? Or will we let an irresponsible Congress set us on the road our English cousins have at present taken? The road to monetary ruin and state handle of our definitely lives?”

“On the international scene, two fantastic superpowers face each and every other with nuclear missiles at the ready — poised to bring Armageddon to the planet.”

“Those who study my letter will know irrespective of whether or not these missiles have been fired or not. Either they will be surrounded by the comparable beauty we know, or they will wonder sadly what it was like when the planet was nonetheless beautiful.”

“If we suitable right here at present meet the challenge confronting us, these who open that time capsule 1 hundred years from now will do so in peace, prosperity and the ultimate in private freedom.

“If we do not retain our rendezvous with destiny, the letter most most likely will below no situations be study — for the purpose that they will reside in the planet we left them, a planet in which no 1 specific is permitted to study of particular person liberty or freedom of choice.”

“Will we choose out fiscal duty, restricted government, and freedom of choice for all our people?”
