What the Huawei, WeChat and TikTok bans all have in common, US desperate to cling to its dollar privilege

It is all about the petrodollar hegemony …. Trumps EO to ban WeChat/TikTok etc and Pompeo’s Deep State “Clean Network” is in part designed to slow the internationalization of the digital Yuan. This is the biggest threat to US. If China rolls out DCEP and foreign merchants can use Chinese fintech platforms, I.e., alipay and wechat pay, to conduct cross-border exchanges then the USD and by extension the US empire is doomed. The timing of these announcements are partly due to trump’s reelection and partly because the US is starting to feel the heat, given the recent announcement regarding ant financial IPO and DCEP testings… Recently Trump hinted that AliPay could be next on the list. This has nothing to do with spying/backdoors/IP theft but ironically everything to do with “National Security”….

The US actions actually make perfect sense when you look at it from the perspective of US attacking China in a full stack manner and making sure that America retains dominance in the entire stack… Think of the OSI model in networking, in order for applications to communicate across distances each layer has to be working. The more layers American can dominate in then the more chokepoints it can use against percieved enemies such as what its doing with the Google Play ban against Huawei…

At the network level its all about the raw transport of communication, and here its 5G as the future. If American can convinence its allies and vassals in the world to use non-Chinese vendors then in the future America can leverage Western dominance of the networks to ban Chinese apps, commerce, communication directly at the lowest network layer. This is what the fight for 5G is mostly about…

Then there is the end-point layer of the stack… IoT devices, smartphones, smartwatches, etc… here the US is using its sanctions power when it comes to semiconductor supply chain to deprive Huawei and other Chinese telcos and mobile makers the ability to compete internationally… if the only phones allowed are iPhones and Samsung (also US controlled) then America can cut China off and isolate China at the endpoint levels as well…

Then there is the firmware/software/storefront level… In this context Google is operating as an intelligence and sanctions arm of the US government at both the firmware (Android OS) and store front (Google Play) level… Apple the same. Even if the device is a Chinese one, if US can sanction at the store front level then it can still strike at applications at will by simply getting them delisted…

And finally at the application level they can force the likes of TikTok to directly sell to American companies… If it cannot buy, it bans… likely the fate of WeChat (which China won’t sell) and AliPay…

Bottom line its all about controlling the coming 4th industrial revolution, the IoT smart devices, AI of the future and also about preserving the petrodollar hegemony… WeChat is already a payment system but not yet widely used by the West. Why was TikTok banned first? Because it has been adopted in mass by the West and the US citizens, so it wou’ldnt be hard for TikTok to incorporate a payment system and tie in with the digital Yuan and that overnight would be a direct challenge to the US dollar…. so even if American couldn’t target it at the app level it would target it at the firmware/storefront level, the endpoint level, and the network level…

American’s greatest fear is the world using Huawei (Chinese ) 5G for the network, Chinese mobile phones (be it Huawei or Oppo or Xiaomi etc) for the device endpoints, and Chinese apps like WeChat/TikTok/Alipay for the payments, coupled with Chinese BRI and the fact that US is printing like there is no tomorrow with QE Infinity, the writing is on the wall… If the likes of Huawei, TikTok, WeChat are allowed to proliferate worldwide and help the digital blockchain Yuan gain mass adoption, and if BRI were to succeed and invalidate America’s naval blockade plans hatched up for China, then China already being the world’s largest trading partner, it would be able to easily offer the rest of the world a viable solution to counterbalance the US regime’s increasingly wanton and reckless abuse of weaponizing the US dollar global reserve status in strangling other nations and essentially taxing and enslaving the world… When the day comes that America can then no longer lie, cheat and steal, then it collapses upon itself….
