The Hundred Year Strategy: Why China is NOT our ally

China’s 100-year plan for global takeover is outlined in Dr. Michael Pillsbury’s book Hundred-Year Marathon. Dr. Pillsbury, a Senior Fellow and Director for Chinese Strategy who served on the staff of four U.S. Senate Committees from 1978-1984 and 1986-1991, received his PhD at Columbia University, and is fluent in Mandarin (Pillsbury, nd). President Trump branded Pillsbury “the leading authority on China” (Tweed, 2018). You can click here to read Pillsbury’s bio

John Mauldin, Senior Contributor at Forbes, and President at Mauldin Economics, exposes The Hundred-Year Marathon, which is “China’s secret strategy to supplant the United States as the world’s dominant power, and to do so by 2049, the one-hundredth anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic.” Mauldin chillingly details China’s goal to take over the globe without “ever firing a shot.  It is certainly plausible in the modern world that biological, technological, and economic warfare are their tactics.  Staunch evidence to support this theory is clearly found in China’s Thousand Talents Plan, the Covid-19 pandemic and the ties to the Wuhan Lab, and Gain of Function Research (Kang, 2020; What is Gain-of-Function Research & Who is at High Risk?, 2020)

Click here for my previous article as a refresher on these topics. 

In 2001, China gained accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in what The New York Times hailed as a “stunning victory for the Clinton administration and corporate America;” backed by Texas Governor George W. Bush, this agreement lifted China’s economic restrictions that had spanned two decades (Schmitt & Kahn, 2000). At a ceremony in the Rose Garden, Clinton himself said, ”the House of Representatives has taken an historic step toward continued prosperity in America, reform in China and peace in the world”  (Schmitt & Kahn, 2000).

Keep in mind, the economic restrictions placed upon China were part of a crucial “anti-Communist policy” to prevent communism from spreading across the globe. We only need to look to Cambodia for a history lesson to see how Chinese influence leads to domination. In 1965, Cambodia severed ties with the United States to align with the People’s Republic of China. Ten years later in 1975, the Chinese covertly aided and supplied arms that allowed the Communist Khmer Rouge, led by Marxist leader Pol Pot, to take over Cambodia, in a 5 year civil war. This war led to the death of 1.5 million people; perishing from starvation, execution, overwork, or disease (“Khmer Rouge: Cambodia’s years of brutality,” 2018). To this day, Cambodia remains dependent upon China. 

During this same time, a clandestine communist takeover occurred under the guise of the Democratic Kampuchea; “private property and money markets were abolished,” hospitals, schools, businesses and offices, monasteries, places of worship were all closed, and you needed government permission in order to travel (Chandler & Overton, 2019). Sounds eerily familiar to worldwide Covid-19 restrictions. 

So how well has this COLOSSAL failure of allowing China into the WTO, once hailed a triumph, panned out for us in America?

Let’s take a peek shall we: 


Outsourcing to China has led to the loss of 3.7 million American jobs since 2001, which accounts for 2.46% of America’s unemployment (Soergel, 2020). Below, you can see the states in blue were hit the hardest. 

U.S. imports from China grew to an astounding $440 billion from 2001 to 2018. This has led to a massive spike in America’s deficit to China from $83 billion in 2001 to an estimated $420 billion in 2018.  

Stolen Intellectual Property (IP) 

According to a report from the Office of the United States Trade Representative, 2017 Special 301 Report, “Chinese theft of American IP currently costs the US between $225 billion and $600 billion annually.” American IP includes “film, record and software piracy, and counterfeiting of luxury goods and pharmaceuticals” (Stanford Law School, & Goldstein, 2018). 

Pharmaceuticals and Medical Supplies

China has a 70% chokehold on supplies of medical ingredients, and in 2004, America closed its final penicillin manufacturing plant. Yes, we are solely dependent on foreign countries for production and supply of a crucial antibiotic. 


From October 2019 to October 2020 (during the Covid-19 pandemic), the Chinese Communist Party’s GDP industrial profits increased 28.2%  due to their monopoly on crucial medical supplies and medicine ingredients (McKay, 2020).  

Security & Military Threat

In 2013, Larry Wortzel, a veteran scholar of all things Asia, testified before the House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, which can be read here. He exposed how China has “compromised a range of U.S. networks, including those of the Department of Defense (DOD), defense contractors, and private enterprises.” He continued, stating, “these activities are designed to achieve a number of broad security, political, and economic objectives.” In simple terms, China is stealing our classified military information, trade secrets, and technology. 

A 2020 Report to Congress of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission stated the following findings: 

           “Through its modernization efforts, China has emerged as an unprecedented economic rival and a growing military threat capable of inflicting grave harm on the United States and its allies and partners. China’s economic engagement with the United States has proved to be a critical enabler of its rapid economic growth, steadily feeding Beijing’s confidence in its ability to act on its longstanding ambition to match and ultimately displace the United States as the predominant global leader. Meanwhile, Beijing has intensified its diplomatic efforts, underpinned by an increased use of economic and military coercion, to drive wedges between Washington and its allies.

Strategic competition with China presents an increasing challenge for the United States. As Chinese leaders have perceived the power gap between China and the United States as steadily closing, they have become increasingly confident in their ability to expand the reach of the CCP’s authoritarian values and repression to the detriment of the United States, its workers, businesses, and allies. Continued success by the Chinese government in achieving its economic, diplomatic, and military goals could set back U.S. economic and technological progress for decades at the cost of good jobs and shared prosperity, embolden autocrats and dictators around the world, and obstruct U.S. military support to U.S. allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific in the event of a future conflict.”

After reading this evidence, as Americans, we must ask ourselves, are Marxist agendas promoted by organizations like BLM and the main stream media, such as gender equality, critical race theory, cancel culture, censorship, and defunding the police, naturally occurring concerns in American society

OR, are these issues intentionally being propagandized, orchestrated, and financed by the progressive agendas of the CCP in order to achieve their 100-year strategy for global dominance by destroying America from within?

As history shows, communist takeovers start with internally dividing and disarming citizens, controlling thought and censoring free speech, and instigating civil war ( Editors, 2019). The current state of our country bears witness that we are on the brink of something more dangerous than most Americans dare to realize, Communism.
