    China – backed hackers charged in massive Equifax data breach…(purpose?).
    China accumulative U.S. Information warfare facts:

    3. Corporate Intellectual property for marketing.

    4. NASA classified information for U.S. national defense.

    5. Potential recruits for the Chinese spy agencies.

    6. Political parties connection information.

    7. Residential home smart appliance devices…(power grid shut off timing).

    8. U.S. political voters preferences and campaign funds.

    9. U.S. driver vehicle tech information.

    10. U.S. residence addresses.

    China will use Artificial Intelligence to initiate their best strategic offense based on
    an effective counter measure to combat China's loss of trade leverage against the United States.


    1. U.S. sanctions hurt China.

    2. U.S. interference with Hong Kong hurt China.

    3. U.S. Intellectual Property agreement hurt China market dominance.

    4. Corona virus causes loss of economy hurt China.

    5. China fears an economic banking system crash.

    China will attempt to balance the scale with the United States.


    1. China could destroy the U.S. power grid system.

    2. China could interfere with U.S. banking transaction system.

    3. China could siphon $trillions from the U.S. treasury.

    4. China could interfere with U.S. satellite communication system.

    China executes strategic offensive to gain economic leverage without a major war with the United States.

    China knows the United States will not wage war according to

    U.S. Congress War Powers Act restricting use of…

    Declaration of War unless the United States is under military…

    foreign attack!

    As the United States tries to recover, chaos ensues with mass

    hysteria and confusion due to China's A.I. calculated strategy.

    The United States must be ready to counter the offense with a

    possible China – Russia alliance timed A.I. deployed strategy.

    Meanwhile we give them some lame tradewar. China has to be stopped before it infests everything it touches. It will not suddenly get more democratic. Rather it will corupt the west with it's idiotic system – which by the way has nothing to do with comunism or democracy, it's just a control state who keeps its populace dumb and weak.

  24. Omar Comin says:

  27. Arrest Equifax. Equifax They can care less.

  28. It on the dark web. Your information is on the dark web..

  29. Lot of people who criticize Trump are SILENT on China.

  30. Sure blame the hackers rather than question the security integrity.

  31. China owns the Equifax. They are becomming an embarrassment to America as the number of Millinaire is greater in China with their modern day slaves work for 2 dolla an howa.
