(Natural News) A new report published by Bloomberg Businessweek reveals how communist China has been secretly embedding microchips into American technology as part of a massive effort to thwart elections and engage in other forms of malicious cyber warfare.
As relayed Bloomberg Businessweek, the report comes after a multi-year investigation into China’s infiltration of United States infrastructure, both corporate and governmental.
According to the evidence, China has been installing tiny computer chips, no larger than a grain of rice, into everything from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines to military drones to computer motherboards, giving the Red Party unimpeded access to all sorts of American electronics.
The release of this eye-opening report came about a week after President Donald Trump stood up at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council and accused China of tampering with U.S. elections, along with Russia.
Just a few hours after the report was released roughly one week later, Vice President Mike Pence gave a speech at the Hudson Institute in Washington, where he was expected to “string together a narrative of Chinese aggression,” including several specific examples of China’s:
“… aggressive moves against American warships, of predatory behavior against their neighbors, and of a sophisticated influence campaign to tilt the midterms and 2020 elections against President Trump.”
Another point of contention is China’s manipulation of its capital markets and debt-leveraging strategies, both of which are used as weapons of control by China to force foreign governments to do their bidding.
Amazon reportedly tipped off U.S. intelligence about communist Chinese subversion of American technology
It’s a far-reaching narrative of communist Chinese subversion that, at its pinnacle, seems to center around China’s use of “tiny microchip” invasion into American technology, and, perhaps most critically, servers utilized by both the military and intelligence communities for national security purposes.
And it was none other than online retail monolith Amazon that, after discovering the anomalous chips on server motherboards, reportedly tipped off American intelligence to this technological invasion by China, as did Apple, which was also privy to China’s machinations.
“Nested on the servers’ motherboards, the testers found a tiny microchip, not much bigger than a grain of rice, that wasn’t part of the boards’ original design,” reports indicate.
“During the ensuing top-secret probe, which remains open more than three years later, investigators determined that the chips allowed the attackers to create a stealth doorway into any network that included the altered machines. Multiple people familiar with the matter say investigators found that the chips had been inserted at factories run by manufacturing subcontractors in China.”
It was this revelation that directly contributed to shifting the narrative away from Russian collusion, and instead towards China, which the Trump administration says is the most serious threat to national security.
“What the Russians are doing pales in comparison to what China is doing across this country,” are the words that The New York Times (NYT) reiterated would be spoken by VP Pence during his Hudson Institute speech on the matter.
Silicon Valley startup known as Elemental paved the way for communist Chinese infiltration in U.S. government computers, reports Bloomberg
At the root of the problem is a technology company known as Elemental that, back in 2006, got its start developing advanced graphics chips for video streaming purposes. Elemental teamed up with the CIA and other American spy agencies to develop servers that these entities could use for military missions.
Elemental reportedly teamed up with another company known as Supermicro that it tasked with manufacturing advanced motherboards for “special-purpose computers” that would be used by the government. And it was here, according to reports, where China found its backdoor into American technology.
“A sizable portion of its engineers were native Mandarin speakers,” explains Zero Hedge about Supermicro’s workforce. “The microchips were inserted at Chinese factories that supplied Supermicro, one of the world’s biggest sellers of server motherboards.”
It sounds rather simple, but apparently it’s not that easy to do – especially when the government is involved. Infiltrating computer hardware in this manner, especially at the nation-state level, is akin to “a unicorn jumping over a rainbow,” according to an anonymous source that spoke to Bloomberg Businessweek.
At the same time, China does currently maintain a global monopoly over the manufacturing of microchips. Roughly 75 percent of all mobile phones and 90 percent of all personal computers are made there, illustrating how China already infiltrated the world of technology long ago.
As far as the “tiny microchips” are concerned, China’s ultimate goal, according to reports, was to gain “long-term access” to sensitive government secrets. Everyday consumers appear to not have been targets, though what’s currently known about the situation isn’t exhaustively conclusive.
“Expect to hear a lot less about Russia, and a lot more about China as the deep state’s interference myopic focus on the former shifts to the latter,” Zero Hedge‘s analysis of the invasion concludes.
“We imagine we’ll be hearing a lot more about the breach from senior U.S. officials, including both the vice president and the president himself, in the very near future.”
