Colleges Being Bought by Beijing

[LFC Comments: The betrayals by American colleges and their professors are definitely un-American. Any university taking foreign money should not be entitled to any financial aid from the federal government.]

‘Bought by Beijing’: Pompeo Warns of China’s Threats to US Colleges

BY CATHY HE December 9, 2020 Updated: December 9, 2020

Excerpts from the article:

“American colleges are becoming “hooked on Chinese Communist Party cash,” while Beijing works to siphon cutting-edge U.S. research to China, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned on Dec. 9.”

“So many of our colleges are bought by Beijing,” Pompeo said during a speech at the Georgia Institute of Technology, outlining Beijing’s aggressive efforts targeting U.S. research institutions. He added that the Chinese regime’s influence on American academics and students jeopardizes academic freedom, as it seeks to suppress critical voices on campus.”

“Americans must know how the Chinese Communist Party is poisoning the well of our higher education institutions for its own ends, and how those actions degrade our freedoms and American national security. If we don’t educate ourselves, if we’re not honest about what’s taking place, we’ll get schooled by Beijing,” Pompeo warned.”

“The state secretary cited a recent investigation by the Department of Education, which found that universities received almost $1.5 billion in contracts and gifts from China from 2014 to 2020.”
