Hillary Clinton warned Australia and New Zealand to take China's interference attempts "seriously."

Hillary Clinton warned Australia and New Zealand to take China's interference attempts "seriously."

Clinton also praised a New Zealand academic, Anne-Marie Brady, who has pioneered work on the Chinese Communist Party's secretive arm that tries to influence policies overseas.
Brady was targeted in a number of break-ins and threats at her office and home. Burglars stole computers, phones, and flash drives, some of which were related to her work.

In Auckland as part of a speaking tour, Hillary Clinton warned about China's foreign-interference campaigns and urged the countries to take the issue "seriously."

"In Australia and here in New Zealand experts are sounding the alarm about Chinese efforts to gain political power and influence policy decisions," Clinton said.

Attempts by China's Communist Party (CCP) to influence local and national politics have been gaining steam in Australia, in particular.

The federal government has drafted a bill outlawing foreign interference and political donations, and a former adviser to the prime minister even spoke on the matter with the US House Armed Services Committee in March.

It's Hilarious Because Her and Bill were all about telling Us how Foreign Influence in our Market was Good for Australia in the 90's.. that was of course when the Influence was coming out of the USA.

Unfortunately for the Corporcracy Demagogues, the Convinced Gen Y Aussies is doesn't matter.

And to be honest We still have not seen as negative effects from China interference compared with US interference in the 90's. China supposed punishments for siding with the USA in South China seas are still Better/nicer than the supposed 'benefits' of the US Corporcracy Influence and subsequent sale of nation assets and privatizations of Public services.

G'Day

Australia is always paying due diligence to possible foreign influences in our country, both negative and positive, whether the critics believe it or not...

That's why we have ASIO, ASIS, Foreign Affairs and various "think tanks" down there in Canberra..

American influences goes back decades (the Gold rushes in the 1850s, the US opening trade with Japan in the 1880s, Aussie-Brit' union organisers introducing trade unions into the USA in the 1890s/1900s, US corpocracy in the 1920s and '30s/the Great Depression, WWII, television in the 1950s, "All the way with LBJ" into the Vietnam War in ihe 1960s, CIA interference in Aussie politics in the 1970s, Oz following the USA into Gulf Wars I and II this century..).

Likewise, China has also influenced Aussie politics, on and off, over the last 160 years..

Speaking of china, I recently bought a set of cups and saucers in fine bone china and was rather delighted with the way my tea tasted!

It seems China did something right.

I’m going to send them an email stating this as thus.

Within your email, will you speak about their oppression of Muslims and countless human rights issues?

This is like being back at school
