    That is correct; they don't like paperwork. Essentially, they failed to report the Chinese money that they took and used to fund Huntington's research, which benefits only America and not China. As I said, the Chinese should be closing them down, not the US.

    Chinese scientists are being discriminated against and sidelined in the US. They should consider pursuing their careers in China instead. Or, at the least, a non-US western country.

    I haven't heard of any problems here in Canada, although if the Conservatives win the election, all bets are off.

    Just from watching Chinese dramas, I kinda suspected this although I didn't really think it would happen. In these dramas, there is always an elite CCP spy who puts on a facade that is as nasty and anti-communist as possible. This incredibly detestable character blends in with the KMT top rung and sounds like Bannon, always saying that he loves money and wealth and that the wretched communists must all be exterminated! Then in the end, we find out that the critical battle was won because he was able to supply crucial intelligence to Mao's forces. In the final episodes, he usually dies as his cover is blown in his final successful mission and his lone wish for his sacrifice is that his children be protected by the CCP and given a chance to become scholars instead of fighters.

    Shows that no matter how much you show the white man that you hate your own kind, they will always suspect your loyalty.

    Then again, how can you trust someone that lives to betray his own country.

    In other Chinese CCP/KMT espionage dramas, an actual CCP undercover might come up with a plan to “frame” the traitor as an undercover agent and make the KMT kill the traitor themselves... I think we’ve been watching too many CCP/KMT espionage dramas...

    These CCP/KMT espionage dramas are very enjoyable to watch. With twists and turns at every corner, many of these tv series are excellently made. If you can understand Chinese or can find some of them with English subtitles, you should watch a few. They are classic.

    I hope it will remain safe in the US for regular ethnic Chinese software engineers to work on "strategic," yet ever increasingly commonplace/necessary fields like AI, robotics, ML, cloud infrastructure, data architecture, etc. Since the competition is too tough in China, LOL.
