The Chinese Communist Party scurried to delete a social media post after one of their professors made bold statements about “power and influence” and infiltrating America. The academic bragged that until President Donald Trump clamped down on the Asian power’s criminal activities, the communists were virtually worry-free. That because, as the Beijing professor mockingly states, between 1992 and 2016, they had “people at the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence.”
Although the influence-peddling came to a screeching halt when President Trump took office, the Asian regime feels confident Joe Biden’s administration will return to the America Second policies that allowed China to overtake the U.S. as the world’s top economy briefly.
“Trump has been saying that Biden’s son has some sort of global foundation. Have you noticed that?” the Beijing professor says in the video. “Who helped him (Biden’s son) build the foundations? Got it? There are a lot of deals in all these.”
It may soon be the case that a Biden administration tries to distract us by rehashing the specter of “Russia.” But the facts simply do not indicate that Vladimir Putin presents anywhere near the danger that China does.
Russia, as facts go, doesn’t have a Top 10 world economy. Frankly, it trails the likes of Italy, Brazil, and Canada. The state of Texas’ economy beats the Russians straight up. In a recently published Op-Ed, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe explains how China cleverly disguises its influence over members of Congress.
“This year China engaged in a massive influence campaign that included targeting several dozen members of Congress and congressional aides,” Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe wrote in an op-ed. “The union leader contacts his congresswoman and indicates that his members won’t support her re-election without a change in position. He tells himself he’s protecting his members, but in that moment, he’s doing China’s bidding, and the congresswoman is being influenced by China, whether she realizes it or not.”
In terms of hot-conflict threats, the U.S. and Russia rank as the top two military powers. But China now has the largest Navy and more than 2 million boots-on-the-ground soldiers, outpacing the U.S. and Russia. It’s engaged in human DNA editing in hopes of creating futuristic super-soldiers, and the technology appears to be coming to fruition in the not-too-distant future. Ratcliffe called China “the greatest threat to Democracy and freedom” since World War II because the regime’s endgame is to confront America indefinitely.
While Democrats spent millions of taxpayer dollars distracting voters with a Russia collusion hoax, China invested its election meddling and propaganda into backing team Biden-Harris, knowing it could return its global domination agenda, as Beijing professor boasted.
Unlike the fake news narratives we are subjected to, China’s threat to American innovation has real consequences. When China succeeds, the American Dream goes to the trash heap, and working families find themselves unemployed.
“Many of China’s major public initiatives and prominent companies offer only a layer of camouflage to the activities of the Chinese Communist Party,” Ratcliffe wrote. “I call its approach of economic espionage ‘rob, replicate and replace.’ China robs U.S. companies of their intellectual property, replicates the technology, and then replaces the U.S. firms in the global marketplace.
Ratcliffe uses an example as recent as 2018 in which China engaged in corporate espionage, stealing wind turbine technology from American Superconductor Corp. The U.S. company suffered $1 billion in lost value. But perhaps more important to working people, 700 employees lost their jobs as a result of China using the innovations to replicate and replace American Superconductor products. Although a jury found China guilty of theft, the damage was done.
Today, a Chinese government-run company called Sinovel sells turbines across the globe. Adding insult to injury, the communists are laughing at weak American politicians who don’t have the tenacity to stand their ground.
