Sen. Josh Hawley told the Washington Free Beacon that former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s history of colluding with China should disqualify him from the Japanese Ambassadorship he is currently nominated for. Emanuel courted Chinese businesses as Chicago mayor, including trips to China. Emanuel then worked for a Wall Street firm that pushed “China-focused entertainment” in collaboration with American companies.
“Rahm Emanuel clearly does not understand the China threat and can’t be trusted to serve as ambassador to Japan,” Hawley said. “That Joe Biden would attempt to put someone so reckless in charge of relations with one of our most important allies is very concerning.” Emanuel as ambassador would be responsible for helping to craft Japan’s strategy against Chinese aggression, especially when it comes to naval incursions into sovereign waters of South-East Pacific neighbours.
In 2016 as mayor, Emanuel put state-owned Chinese transportation giant CRRC to upgrade the Chicago transit authority’s railway cars despite it not scoring as high as competing bids. CRRC has collaborated with Huawei, a Chinese technology company responsible for much of China’s spyware and data collection capabilities.
“Putting a CCP-owned, Huawei-affiliated data harvesting company in charge of building a major American city’s critical infrastructure isn’t just dangerously naïve, for an ambassador to Japan, it’s disqualifying,” Hawley said.
“Giving American taxpayer money to companies owned and operated by the Chinese Communist Party, a militant and genocidal regime, is a dereliction of duty,” Ian Easton, a senior director at the Project 2049 Institute, said. “It’s beyond naïve to think Chicago’s CCP-made trains won’t come with hidden backdoors that collect private data from American riders in peacetime and allow the Chinese military to weaponize the trains against us in a future crisis.”
Emanuel visited Tsinghua University in 2013 to give a speech. Tsinghua University is a significant partner in Chinese military research. Emanuel has also welcome Chinese Communist Party officials and businessmen to Chicago to “[pitch] Chicago to China.” Emanuel enlisted the help of Obama-era officials, including fellow former Obama chief of staff Bill Daley and financier Michael Sacks.
A Senate aide also spoke to the Washington Free Beacon, “If he expects to be taken […]

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
