I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would protect us and our homes from the CCP. Prevent people in China from stealing our data, Lord.
Reading Time: 2 minutes

The CCP is against America and against God. The last thing we need is for them to have access to our data.

From American Mind. U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo recently sounded the alarm on China, warning that the Communist nation poses a significant threat to U.S. national security. She’s right. And of all the security threats presented by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the country’s unrelenting harvesting of data is perhaps the biggest. …

Headquartered in Qingdao, Shandong, Haier Group Corporation entered the U.S. market in 1999. Initially focused on manufacturing and distributing two rather niche products—compact refrigerators and electric wine cellars—as profits grew, so did Haier’s vision for the future. In June 2016, Haier made headlines when it purchased GE Appliances, an American home appliance manufacturer based in Louisville, Kentucky, for $5.4 billion. …

According to Aynne Kokas in her brilliant new book, Trafficking Data, Haier’s acquisition of GE Appliances, which now makes it “the world’s largest consumer appliance company,” “specifically targeted growth through the IoT.” For the uninitiated, IoT refers to the Internet of Things, a network of physical objects or “things” that communicate with each other via embedded sensors and software. IoT is fast becoming the central nervous system of our tech-fueled world. …

Over the past few years Haier has created an entire line of IoT, or “smart,” appliances including smart ovens, smart microwaves, and smart refrigerators. As I have discussed elsewhere, in the world of tech, “smart” is simply a synonym for surveillance. Smart devices connect to various apps and other devices through a wireless connection, which makes them ripe for hacking. …

As Kokas notes, “Haier has foregrounded the development of its new proprietary platform for its IoT, the U+ Connect platform, which collects data through all connected GE Appliances and Haier products.” …

Haier has partnered with the search engine Baidu, China’s answer to Google, a problematic company that has intimate connections with the CCP. As Kokas demonstrates, Haier has already used Baidu’s services to store data for the U+ Connect platform. This means that GE appliances have been integrated into the CCP’s comprehensive data storage system. …

In China, unsurprisingly, there’s no such thing as a private company. To think that … Haier—or any other Chinese company—is acting independently, entirely free from the omnipresent glare of the CCP, requires a complete suspension of disbelief. If it’s an app or a smart device and it has links to China, chances are you’re being monitored and mined for data. …

Greater is He who is in us, than He who is in the world. We take authority, in Jesus mighty name, against satan and all evil that can be perpetrated in this world, by China, or any other nation.

Spirits of Covetousness & Greed lead by a spirit of Mammon has made America vulnerable to the CCP asymmetric warfare & surveillance of American citizens & assets. The CCP know this about government & corporate America and used it to their advantage

Interesting, but incomplete. What ‘data’ exactly, is harvested by a person using an appliance manufactured by this company? Also, how might this be different (doubtful it is) than using a ‘smart’ thermostat or a wireless doorbell where you can view the porch pirate walking off with the Christmas gifts you ordered on line?

🙏🏼✡️🙏🏼Therefore God. exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name above all names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Give thanks in every circumstance, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. So be it, Amen! Amen! Amen!🙏🏼✡️ 🙏🏼
