Over the last four decades, China has de facto colonized the United States with a cadre of business and academic professionals, who, although becoming U.S. citizens, have remained loyal to the Chinese Communist Party.
A key element supporting China's espionage and subversive activities in the U.S. is the real estate industry, which uses 100% Chinese-owned and operated real estate agencies and small corporate entities as vehicles to move money and intelligence agents through traditional Chinese-American communities and to create a critical mass of pro-Beijing Chinese populating strategically important U.S. businesses, research centers and properties nearby military installations.
Superficially, most Chinese real estate agents operate in a normal fashion, but can also act as facilitators for Chinese intelligence agents embedded in the real estate agency itself or in the local community.
Offshore corporations and often complicated and convoluted connections between appearing and disappearing Chinese-owned companies obscure financial and property transactions involving people with no obvious reason to participate in those transactions.
It provides a perfect cover and an operational supply chain for non-official cover (NOC) Chinese intelligence agents, without diplomatic immunity, who are usually "sanitized" at intermediate locations outside or inside the U.S. before arriving at their target area of operation in the United States.
One suspected agent established himself in Canada before moving to the U.S., where he has been linked to suspicious offshore accounts and being remotely involved in real estate transactions for properties located near critical U.S military installations in the Hawaiian Islands, although otherwise having no apparent connections to Hawaii.
