This movie tells the story of the Clean Network Alliance of Democracies, created by Under Secretary of State Keith Krach to defeat the CCP’s master plan to dominate global 5G. The first government-led initiative that proved China Inc. is beatable by exposing its biggest weakness—lack of trust. The Clean Network stands as a proven, replicable model to counter the CCP’s global economic aggression and a vital beachhead to launch initiatives to bolster U.S. leadership & allies across a broad array of strategic technologies vital to our future.
The Clean Network proved to be a winning bipartisan formula adopted by the Biden Administration as a global brand, well-positioned to challenge the CCP’s hegemonic ambitions across every critical economic realm. The Wall Street Journal calls Clean Network an undisputed success and perhaps the most enduring foreign policy legacy of the last 4 years. According to Bloomberg, Tech Titan Krach harnessed the power of a network of nations to counter China—a notable change in tone after years in which the administration pursued a go-it-alone strategy.
