It was not that long ago that we took a look at the 30-year plan that China has put forth. It looks like they are attempting to take over the globe, and since CEOs don’t mind exploiting their people for slave wages, it could actually happen.
While President Donald Trump is attempting to prevent such exploiting from happening, someone else has taken notice, too. FBI director Christopher Wray has restated that “China is seeking to become a global superpower through unconventional means,” according to the Business Insider. He feels also that the problem springs from their society and not just from their government.
As he spoke to the Senate Intelligence Committee with many world leaders in attendance, he said that the Asian nation is employing a “host of methods to undermine American military, economic, cultural, and informational power across the globe” that does not just rely on Chinese “institutions.”
“One of the things we’re trying to do is view the China threat as not just a whole of government threat, but a whole of society threat on their end, and I think it’s going to take a whole-of-society response by us,” said Wray. These Confucius Institutes are becoming more about what is good for China than what is needed for the U.S.A.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats felt the same and told Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) in response to his questions about China’s move as a world power, “There is no question that what you have just articulated is what’s happening with China. They’re doing it in a very smart way; they’re doing it in a very effective way; they are looking beyond their own region.”
The Chinese have also managed to “infiltrate” the Universities and are working to sell communism in America. “I think in this setting, I would just say that the use of non-traditional collectors — especially in the academic setting, whether it’s professors, scientists, students — we see in almost every field office that the FBI has around the country,” Wray noted.
This is where it is wise to pause and really look at the U.S. Unless it was carefully packaged as to hide the many problems and failings from young minds, how else would American’s find it acceptable to forsake their capitalist birthright? Why would they embrace a system that failed in the Soviet Union, turned the Chinese citizens into slaves, and is crumbling Venezuela?
Wary warned, “They’re exploiting the very open research and development environment that we have which we all revere, but they’re taking advantage of it. ” He also gave warnings about the “naiveté” in colleges “about the risks posed by foreign nationals at universities.”
As we look on our campuses and as we see hate groups like Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA gaining praise by the left, can this be doubted? When those opposed to President Trump come out like bedbugs in droves to stand against “America First” policies, can there be even a hint of doubt?
While the DNC is so focused on Russia as to be laughable, China is much more likely to pull off a crippling hack or a cybersecurity threat than anyone (even North Korea, who shows great prowess), and yet almost nothing is said of it.
While not wanting to start McCarthy trials again (since everyone is free to believe that which they choose), we need to understand that communism and all things “China” are being sold as novel and progressive. Some would even say, “forward thinking.”
If we allow this lie to take root much deeper, in no time at all, America will be even more unrecognizable than it is now.
