Excellent list, which could expand, perhaps to companies who depend on most of their manufacturing in China. (Sadly, however, I use a Mac.) I think the Chinese government-related companies do not have a significant portion in one or more of those companies, but I am not sure.

As of 21 January, China has overtaken the US as the world's top destination for new foreign direct investment

Thanks! The real list is way larger; I just put the big brands people are likely to recognize. It would take weeks just to compile a list of every company connected to the CCP, if not months.

Sadly, however, I use a Mac.

Very sad indeed.

I think the Chinese government-related companies do not have a significant portion in one or more of those companies, but I am not sure.

Most sources don't disclose the percentage of ownership CCP companies bought, but among those I could find: they're largely small investments — but that doesn't mean they don't give them considerable influence, since these companies know they have to please Beijing if they want more cash later.

There are a few that are actual subsidiaries, like Riot Games — which explains their Vanguard spyware — but most of them only have a minority of CCP control.

Because he's right.

Why do Dems listen to Obama when he succeeded at nothing but starting wars and murdering brown people?

Donald Trump is seventy-something and not in the best of health. He may be able and willing to make some appearances in 2022. After that count him completely out.

He has no enduring movement. It is all dependent on him personally. He was a flash in the pan.

Except for the fact that Republicans rally around him. He guides the Republican party.

He himself will not be able to boycott anything much. He lacks self-discipline.

You talking about Mike Bloomberg?

He's unequivocally the most successful POTUS in a generation.

Yeah. There was the balanced budget, the wall, and of course now we say "Merry Christmas" again.
