house Bill H.R. 3532

Should the Chinese Military be Barred From Acquiring Sensitive American Technology?

Argument in favor

China’s acquisition of sensitive American technologies through coercion or outright theft is wrong. It also poses a major threat to U.S. security. Keeping sensitive technologies out of the hands of Chinese companies and the Chinese military should be a priority for U.S. policymakers.

WTF? OF COURSE WE SHOULD NOT RELEASE SENSITIVE MILITARY SECRETS TO OTHER GOVERNMENTS!!!! Please note that this bill, however, is simply a Russian-Republican-Rabble-Rousing Round of BULLSHIT. Who committed this crime recently?? Oh that’s right... Lyin Donnie. #IMPEACHTHEMF #MAGA

Yes, no foreign country should be permitted to use coercion, cooperative ventures, academic assignments, access to their markets, creation of academic institutes nor other means to steal intellectual property from the United States. China has been very good at leveraging all of the above in successful efforts to acquire critically useful technologies to support its economic expanse and now, its expanded military capabilities. I fear that they are already international leaders in some areas, Their covert and cyber efforts are very sophisticated. Our preoccupation with military conflicts meant that few folks were watching the developments over the past 40 years, despite warnings particularly from the cyber warfare folks. I am not sure that this legislation will help much other than going on record that we 'noticed' and are watching.

Argument opposed

Many technologies are produced by both American and non-American companies, so banning American companies from selling sensitive technologies to Chinese companies and the Chinese government would be ineffective — they’ll just get the technology from non-U.S. companies.

Cannot support HR 3532 The question taken without context appears ludicrous. The question when taken together with the background summary provided is too vague and confusing. The bill itself seems to be a muddle. I suggest it be rewritten more clearly as two separate bills First, it is implied that the technology is proprietary and integral to our national interests. Meaning what exactly? Next, we are told other countries have that technology and are willing to sell it to the Chinese. So if other countries have this technology and are willing to sell it, what would be the purpose of this bill? Again, what is the real subject of the bill? Is someone alleging that foreign countries are selling proprietary & sensitive American Technology to the Chinese? Then stopping and preventing the sale should be the focus of the efforts. We need competent Secretaries of Commerce, Defense, Homeland Security, and State, instead of Team Trump Bobbleheads. At this point what role has the CIA been given? If the Chinese are actually in America stealing America’s Security Technology, then efforts should be to improve the security of the technology from start to finish. This is not a matter of legislation. Where’s American Security? Where’s the FBI? As for China or any other foreign country like Russia sanctioning reverse engineering American developed technology that is what trade agreements are for. Best to dump Trump and his corrupt team of morons ASAP and put a team in place that can understand and navigate the intricacies of trade in the 21st Century. Again, We need competent Secretaries of Commerce, Defense, Homeland Security, and State, instead of Team Trump’s Corrupt and Incompetent Bobbleheads.

    That’s a stupid question. They should never have access to any sensitive data or equipment.

    Shouldn’t this be obvious? (Also, super pleased to see the broad bipartisan support from the Countable users. All the progressives and conservatives users on the platform that I know that are actually real people agree with this. Questions like this make it easy to tell who the bots are.)

    It’s sad that we even have to ask this. They shouldn’t be gaining ANY access to US military information and intel, especially with the protests going on. That could be highly dangerous to national security and the department of defense.

    Why would they even be allowed? To give them access to sensitive American technology would be opening the door to eventually being able to completely infiltrate our network infrastructure and give them the ability, and others, to completely knock us offline...why would we even consider this???

    Gosh, I must be having some horrible nightmare! Or perhaps I have died and gone to hell! Because the country that I served for nearly 9 years had laws on the books such as treason when people sold our secrets to foreign governments especially those that are not our allies!!! Make NO mistake China is NOT our ally!!! They want to take over our country and have been trying to do so by many different means over the years!!! It is sad that our own government has to propose a bill to support our own sovereignty!!!

    We have laws under ITAR regulations that require licenses from the US state department. The various intel and military departments each have to review and approve any sensitive technology being offered for sale. The only way these technologies get released are through treasonous acts or someone in the state department like a corrupt Hillary Clinton, VP Biden or Obama bin laden that allow it for self enrichment reasons. It’s time for the elites to be treated like the rest of America. You commit a crime then you do the time in jail. Trump needs to drain the swamp, build the wall and investigate all the wrong doing by the DNC. I really hope the GOP grow some balls and start these investigations!!! I fear the reason many won’t is because they are also corrupt and are worried the house of cards they built with all their corrupt back room dealings will come tumbling down. So it makes the voters job easier, vote out the complacent uninvolved and get some fresh new blood injected into the ranks of the GOP.
