I am going to precede what I am going to talk about here with something else that in itself I would have thought rather noteworthy.

Xi just opened the CCP conference on Monday with the statement that the control of Hong Kong is now “complete” and that “Taiwan is next.” 

I am pretty stunned that there is — at least as of my writing this — no comment in Western MSM on this.

Now, considering the above, think of the dumbest person you’ve ever met.

Amplify this person by, say, 100X and then imagine what such a person may do given the above.

You think I’m being overly sensationalistic? I wish I were.

I am still in shock.

Which is saying something because, quite honestly, I feel like I’ve become pretty impervious to absolute insanity over the last 3 years or so.

Deep breath. Here it is.

The US government just imposed new export controls on China’s chip industry.

To put it simply, sleepy Joe has forced all Americans working in China to choose between quitting their jobs and losing their American citizenship.

As a result, pretty much every American executive and engineer working in China’s semiconductor manufacturing industry resigned this last week, paralyzing Chinese manufacturing overnight.

As of right now, every advanced node semiconductor company is currently facing a comprehensive supply cut-off, resignations from all American staff, and immediate operations paralysis.

For example, chip giant ASML has stopped providing services and support to mainland China.

This is a financial war. When do they just start shooting?

So why is this an assured invasion of Taiwan?

Because the only way that China can now restore its chip manufacturing is by going to the largest chip manufacturing plant in the world: Taiwan.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC), which is the world’s most valuable semiconductor manufacturer, reportedly accounts for over 56% of the global market share of the semiconductor industry.

And with that much dominance in a market that most electronic devices and parts rely on, China having control over Taiwan would give it more power in the semiconductor industry.

Smart investors are already preparing for what’s coming…
