President Trump has signed EO declaring a "National Emergency" re Threats against US Technology.(5G, Huawei, ZTE)


CNBC: "Trump declares national emergency over threats against US technology amid campaign against Huawei"

"President Donald Trump on Wednesday declared a national emergency over threats against American technology, the White House said.

The move, done via executive order, is expected to precede a ban on U.S. firms doing business with the Chinese telecommunications company Huawei, though the order does not refer to Huawei directly.

The order authorizes the Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, in consultation with other top officials, to block transactions that involve information or communications technology that “poses an unacceptable risk to the national security of the United States.” 

The announcement has been under discussion for a year. It comes as the U.S and China remain locked in a trade dispute and could escalate tensions between the world’s two largest economies.

The order has been opposed by small rural carriers, who continued to rely on Huawei equipment even after it was largely dropped by the larger telecommunications companies. 

In a statement, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote that the administration will “protect America from foreign adversaries who are actively and increasingly creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in information and communications technology infrastructure and services in the United States.”"

Bloomberg: "Trump Moves to Limit Chinese Telecom Sales as Trade War Grows"

"Donald Trump signed an order Wednesday that's expected to restrict Chinese telecommunication firms Huawei Technologies Co. and ZTE Corp.from selling their equipment in the U.S., ratcheting up the battle for control over new 5G technology networks.

The order also risks further aggravating Beijing as the president seeks to pressure China's leaders into agreeing to a wide-ranging trade deal with the U.S.

In the order, which didn’t name any countries or companies, Trump declared a national emergency relating to threats against information and communications technology and services. An administration official insisted in a conference call with reporters on Wednesday that the order wasn’t aimed specifically at China.

However, the administration has for months mounted an international campaign pinpointing Huawei as a security risk. U.S. prosecutors have indicted the company on charges of trade-secret theft and had Canada arrest a key executive on sanctions charges. Diplomats pressing allies to bar Huawei from 5G networks have said the company is subject to Chinese law that demands cooperation with security services, raising the specter of espionage."

ZeroHedge: "China's Huawei, 70 Affiliates Blacklisted By US Commerce Department"

"Reuters reports that the U.S. Commerce Department is adding Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and 70 affiliates to its so-called "Entity List" - a move that will make it much more difficult for the telecom giant to buy parts and components from U.S. companies. U.S. officials said the decision would also make it difficult for Huawei to sell some products because of its reliance on U.S. suppliers.

Department of Commerce Announces the Addition of Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. to the Entity List

WASHINGTON – Today, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that it will be adding Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. and its affiliates to the Bureau’s Entity List. This action stems from information available to the Department that provides a reasonable basis to conclude that Huawei is engaged in activities that are contrary to U.S. national security or foreign policy interest. This information includes the activities alleged in the Department of Justice’s public superseding indictment of Huawei, including alleged violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), conspiracy to violate IEEPA by providing prohibited financial services to Iran, and obstruction of justice in connection with the investigation of those alleged violations of U.S. sanctions.

The sale or transfer of American technology to a company or person on the Entity List requires a license issued by BIS, and a license may be denied if the sale or transfer would harm U.S. national security or foreign policy interests. The listing will be effective when published in the Federal Register.

“This action by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security, with the support of the President of the United States, places Huawei, a Chinese owned company that is the largest telecommunications equipment producer in the world, on the Entity List. This will prevent American technology from being used by foreign owned entities in ways that potentially undermine U.S. national security or foreign policy interests,” said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. “President Trump has directed the Commerce Department to be vigilant in its protection of national security activities. Since the beginning of the Administration, the Department has added 190 persons or organizations to the Entity List, as well as instituted five investigations of the effect of imports on national security under Section 232 of the Trade Act of 1962.” Additions to the Entity List are decided by the End-User Review Committee which is comprised of officials from the Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, State Department, and Department of Energy. Under § 744.11(b) of the Export Administration Regulations, persons or organizations for whom there is reasonable cause to believe that they are involved, were involved, or pose a significant risk of becoming involved in activities that are contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States, and those acting on behalf of such persons, may be added to the Entity List.

The Bureau of Industry and Security’s mission is to advance U.S. national security and foreign policy objectives by ensuring an effective export control and treaty compliance system and promoting continued U.S. strategic technology leadership. BIS is committed to preventing U.S.-origin items from supporting Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) projects, terrorism, or destabilizing military modernization programs."

Trump's new 2020 campaign slogan "MAGA+5G"

The only safety concern would be for US Hegemony and their maintaining control of the web/grid.

Trump's way too gung ho about 5G and the Internet of things.

Trade war is just getting heated up and President Trump has just thrown a 5G spanner in to the works.

No concerns about the safety. As usual, protect the business, fuck the people.
