Bill on Secure Freedom Radio 9/2/21
Bill talks with Frank about:
- The Chinese Communist Party is trying to enlist its “old friends” in the U.S. like the Chamber of Commerce to prevent legislation they perceive as tough on China.
- George Soros writes in the Financial Times warning investors away from investing in MSCI China. Why? We need to follow this closely.
- More on the hypocrisy of Larry Fink’s BlackRock urging fund investors to increase their allocation to China while at the same time demanding corporations’ strict ESG compliance everywhere else.
- China’s Chairman Xi doesn’t seem to care about crushing the value of many significant Chinese companies. Investors need to beware.
- It seems that America’s “enemy within” is becoming more dangerous than our “enemy without” foreign adversaries.
- It’s time to stop calling the enemies of freedom “progressives.” We need to call them what they are: Marxists. And our defense and corporate establishment must stop making common cause with them.
Thank you. I wanted to catch up in the aftermath of Gina Raimondo’s splendid adventure in Beijing. She is, of course, the Commerce Secretary. Bill, I just wondered, what was she doing in Beijing? What are the things, I guess as importantly, she did before she went, and then what went down while she was there?Watch now
On the other side, as you’ve been sounding alarm and everybody else involved with the committee for present danger China, has been talking about, Xi’s intentions are pretty clear and they’re pretty hostile, and he seems to be battening China down to be in war mode, and the signals are all over from beginning to kick Western due diligence companies out of the country to arresting key… Of course, this has been going on… While arresting key executives of big companies that are not playing ball with the Chinese Communist Party, and they seem increasingly to be on a war footing and Wall Street and the big multinationals are in denial. They just want this to pass.Watch now
We are back and we’re pleased, as always, at this point in the week generally with the opportunity to speak to Bill Walton, a recovering master of the universe on Wall Street. A man who has, among other things become a prominent figure in the conservative movement in our nation, as well as a very engaged philanthropist, as well as dedicated public citizen I think it’s fair to say. And he’s a man of many, many parts and we’re always happy to have a chance to tap his insights, as well as those that he generates in the course of a terrific television podcast that he does, the Bill Walton Show.Watch now
We are back and Bill Walton is still with us, I’m happy to say. Bill, we were talking earlier about some of the ideas that are afloat in terms of trying to, well help keep the Chinese government afloat, I think it’s fair to say. Very ill-advised ideas like this science and technology agreements renewal. I wanted to turn to some other evidence of the difficulties the regime is having economically at the moment and your sense of whether we should be encouraging those problems or alleviating them.Watch now

And we’re talking about an upcoming episode, as we speak, with Bob Lighthizer, the renowned trade representative to successive presidents.
