GOP Sen. Tom Cotton suggested that Chinese students should be banned from studying technology and science in the US—and said he has “little doubt” that Beijing is trying to steal a coronavirus vaccine from America. “In the middle of a pandemic, what’s the most valuable intellectual property in the world?(Snip) “So I have little doubt that the Chinese intelligence services are actively trying to steal America’s intellectual property as it relates to the virus that they unleashed on the world, because, of course, they want to be the country that claims credit for finding those drugs or finding a vaccine,


How would our fine and patriotic universities line their pockets with contributions from China if we try to stop Chinese spies from stealing our military and industrial secrets?

I guess one question might be who's paying their tuition ? Let them go to the University of Pyongyang.

I have bad news for you, Tom. That horse has long since left the barn. They've been here for years, gone back, stolen our technology and are planning for their coming war with America. Do not doubt me.

Uh spot on, Tom. Every Chinese national should be seen for what they are - citizens of an enemy state with guaranteed pressure to bring home OUR intellectual property. Vaccines are a tiny piece of the puzzle. The even dumber behavior is that of US businesses which set up shop in China using the short-term cheap labor offered by the ChiComs who require such companies to divulge their trade secrets for the 'privilege' of these arrangements. Haven't you seen a US created item then copied by the Chinese and sold back to us undercutting the originators? I have.

I know a grad student in a program in a large midwestern state school. Half or more of his classmates are Chinese nationals. He believes they have handlers here watching them. In a few fleeting moments of private candor, a couple of them have admitted that their tuition is paid by the Chinese government.

#4, they didn't have to steal our technology. Clinton gave it to them, with, I suspect, a cash flow in return. Remember Charlie Trie? The Chinese agent who carried around a very large sum of dollars?

At state universities most of the students in science, math, and engineering are not from the USA. They are highly sought after because all of them have to pay out of state tuition which is big bucks. It's been that way for decades. As a result many of the faculty members are also not originally from the USA. Not saying it's right. It's just the world we live in. Admire Senator Cotton but you can't put the genie back into the bottle.

They really should be taking a second look at all the visas that are being handed to Chinese citizens that allow them to freely enter and stay in the USA. As those visas are the aspect of globalization that allowed Chinese citizens and others to rapidly import the COVID-19 virus into the USA. Clearly the USA is naive, as during the Obama era the Democrats and some cheap labor Republicans wanted to give permanent residence in the USA (a green card) to every foreign student, of which there are hundreds of thousands of Chinese each year, who graduate from US colleges and universities. Such action if enacted, would probably have allowed a million Chinese and their dependents each year who would still hold allegiance to China, to have a free run of the USA with all the rights of US citizens except the right to vote. No doubt China learned a big lesson from the COVID-19 pandemic, and that is how quickly the free countries of the world can be brought to their knees through covert biological warfare. So it is fair to ask if there are no changes, what will be the next contagious disease that China will introduce into the USA and the free world?

I agree wholeheartedly with #1 except I don't know Noem. And I agree on VP Pence. Him speaking on the virus is the first I've heard him talk in 3-1/2 years. He is not dynamic enough to follow in PDJT's footsteps. I like what I hear from Tom Cotton. TC is not a dynamo like our president, but I don't think anyone will take advantage of him.

#9 I don't think we would have had this "we're helpless to change anything" attitude if Germans had dominated our universities during WWII. I know we did not take lightly the presence of Japanese. If universities needs to cut back in size and budget, they can lay off professors, or require American professors to actually teach multiple classes for their paycheck. We most definitely can change this idiocy!

I admire Senator Cotton, but here I'm disappointed with these statements and with much of the tone of this thread. To use a broad brush and paint all Chinese students as being subversive and anti-American is ignorant and dangerous. What's next -- -round them up and put them in camps like we did the Japanese? How many on this thread know even one Chinese student? These are people who have been born into an overcrowded country with an abysmal educational system and an evil, oppressive government. Under such conditions, who would not want to better their lot and come to the most envied place on earth? Of the dozen or more Chinese students whom I have become friends with, have invited into our home, shared many meals with, taken to church, traveled to scenic parts of the U.S. with.....not a single one has come here with evil intent. They have all grown to love America. Some are hoping to stay. Some have already gone back to China. All feel a deep obligation to get the best education they can so that they can get a good-paying job and not only improve their standard of living, but also support their parents and grandparents, who have proudly invested in their children to be able to do what they never had the opportunity to do...come to America. Channel your fear and anger and resentment at the Communist government that finds its citizens expendable and has no conscience about the havoc and sorrow they have created...this virus being the latest example. But to broadly condemn all Chinese people as enemies of America, especially the ones who have had an opportunity to come here seeking self-improvement, is paranoia and a display of the ugly American. Imagine going to school overseas during the Obama administration and being labeled as a threat and unwanted because the U.S. was supporting terrorism, promoting perversion, defending baby-killing, ridiculing law enforcement, etc.! Please remember that it was not just Americans who have been "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights..."

A federal appeals court in New Orleans on Thursday ruled that the all-male military draft system is constitutional, pointing to a 1981 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. The case, which was argued in March, stemmed from a lawsuit filed by two men with the National Coalition for Men who had challenged the historic male-only draft. They had argued that the 1981 case was outdated and was ruled on when women were not as involved in combat as many are today.

Data released Aug. 3 by the state Employment Security Department (ESD) shows that criminals were filing fake claims in the first week of March. That’s more than two months before ESD publicly disclosed the fraud and temporarily froze benefit payments, in mid-May, by which time a staggering 56% of the weekly claims ESD was paying were from criminals, many of them reportedly overseas.

It is no secret but public knowledge that Kamala Harris slept her way up into California political life by being a very public escort and mattress for California Democrat Kingmaker Willie Brown. Willie Brown is 30 years older than Harris and was very married at the time. It was public. It was an embarrassment. With Joe Biden’s photo metaphorically the definition of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, voters will decide in November whether they want Harris to be their president some time in the next four years.

President Trump continues to be his own worst enemy: On Thursday, he stooped to calling presumptive vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris a “mad woman.” That doesn’t promote his agenda. It doesn’t help him with women. It doesn’t shore up his image as worthy of the nation’s highest office. It’s just, as Trump would say, mean and nasty. Sure, Harris isn’t the first target of Trump’s ad hominem attacks or over-the-top language. But making everything personal is unbecoming. It turns off voters who like his policies but dislike his rhetoric.
