China is the single biggest threat to the United States and the free world in our times, a leading U.S. intelligence official warned this week. “Beijing intends to dominate the US and the rest of the planet economically, militarily and technologically,” U.S. National Intelligence director John Ratcliffe wrote in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal on Thursday. 

The National Intelligence chief in President Donald Trump’s administration disclosed that Beijing has been carrying out human testing on its soldiers to enhance their combat capabilities. “US intelligence shows that China has even conducted human testing on members of the People’s Liberation Army in hope of developing soldiers with biologically enhanced capabilities,” he revealed. “There are no ethical boundaries to Beijing’s pursuit of power.” 

Ratcliffe, who replaced the agency’s acting director Richard Grenell in May, also accused Beijing of stealing U.S. technology to ramp up its military capabilities. “Many of China’s major public initiatives and prominent companies offer only a layer of camouflage to the activities of the Chinese Communist Party,” he explained. 

“China should be America’s primary national security focus going forward,” he concluded.

In a WSJ article titled “China Is National Security Threat No. 1” Ratcliffe wrote:

As Director of National Intelligence, I am entrusted with access to more intelligence than any member of the U.S. government other than the president. I oversee the intelligence agencies, and my office produces the President’s Daily Brief detailing the threats facing the country. If I could communicate one thing to the American people from this unique vantage point, it is that the People’s Republic of China poses the greatest threat to America today, and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom world-wide since World War II.

The intelligence is clear: Beijing intends to dominate the U.S. and the rest of the planet economically, militarily and technologically. Many of China’s major public initiatives and prominent companies offer only a layer of camouflage to the activities of the Chinese Communist Party.

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.

The remarks from the leading U.S. intelligence official come as Beijing hopes for a Democrat-run White House. China’s Communist ruler, Xi Jinping, and other top apparatchiks have congratulated Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris. The communist regime which hasn’t held a democratic vote for 71 years, declared “Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris” the “choice of the American people” in its congratulatory statement. 

Emboldened by the media coronation of Democratic candidate as “President-Elect,” the Communist regime has opened talks with the Biden team, the Hong Kong newspaper South China Morning Post on November 13. China seeks a ‘reset’ of the U.S.-China policy shaped by the four years of President Donald Trump, the Hong Kong daily noted. 

The Chinese military has been rattled by President Trump’s recent efforts to cut its access to U.S. technology and financial markets. Last month, President Trump issued an executive order banning investment in front companies controlled by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The order set to come into effect next month will target more than 30 companies identified as entities run by the PLA. Beijing is “increasingly exploiting United States capital to resource and to enable the development and modernization of its military, intelligence, and other security apparatuses,” the order added.

The steps by the Trump administration coincide with China’s growing militarist expansion around the world. The PLA is eying building its military and naval presence all across the globe, setting up its first overseas military base in Djibouti, near the Horn of Africa, and a naval outpost in Pakistan’s Gwadar port overlooking the Arabian Sea. 

Beijing has created and fortified artificial islands in the South China Sea, encroaching in foreign waters and threatening sea lanes in the region. 

China attacked India in May, grabbing control of a strategic valley along its Himalayan frontier. In recent months, Beijing has repeated its threats to invade neighboring Taiwan and escalated a trade war with Australia, a key U.S. ally in the Asia Pacific. 

China is also expanding its military footprint in the oil-rich Middle East. Under a new deal, Beijing plans to invest around $400 billion in Iran aimed a getting access to the country’s resources and to the regime’s military and air bases, news reports suggest. The Communist regime also plans to put boots on the ground in Iran. According to media reports, China will initially station 5000 “security personnel” to “protect” its investment.

The greatest threat comes from internal domestic terrorists, trashing the electoral process, rotting the courts, federal spending with no expectation for repayment, conversion of schools into indoctrination and social services facilities, colleges issuing worthless certificates based on insurmountable loans to make them possible and a Congress of ancient cretins eroding freedom and liberty by the hour.

Hell, if John Kerry had been able to he would probably have submitted the US to China in the greater interest of his one world fantasy. Hah, and China would have been smart enough to ignore him as the flake he is!

On the uptick, Trump prevented Hillary. We take our blessings as we find them.

    The hell with kerry or clinton: we need to step back and realize what has happened: our schools have been COMPLETELY infiltrated by agents of a communist country(China), our media has been infiltrated by agents of a communist country(China, and our government has been infiltrated by agents of a communist country(China). If biden and harris get into office, the infiltration will be complete.

    The hell with the discussion about a handful of treasonous maggots – we are about to be completely taken over by a malignant foreign power.

    Let’s start the discussion there.

    Our country has been rotting from the inside out for a very long time. The damage we see being done to our traditions and institutions is I am afraid just a symptom. Without good people that want real education and self reliance and who value the republic, none of this political stuff really matters.

So one arm of the deep state is telling us what an incredible threat an infiltration by China is, while every other arm is busy facilitating it.

Beijing delenda est.

If Biden and Harris are ‘sworn in’ to office, China will have it’s embezzler and a useful slut in their back pocket.

If Biden and Harris are sworn into office, our government will be illegitimate.

China is the greatest threat to the hegemony of the US but it is not the greatest threat to democracy. The greatest threat to democracy was corruption of the value of western heritage by critical theory and adoption of communitarian ideology of equality of outcome, rather than equality of opportunity.

Democrats don’t give a fuck. China already owns the Democrat party.

    Plus many Republicans….equality of opportunity to cash in. There is plenty of “spreading around money” as China “reinvests” in America. The Belt and Road translates to Beltway and Chinese Roader.

National Intel Director John Ratcliffe: “Beijing intends to dominate the US and the rest of the planet economically, militarily and technologically.”

No doubt that they can probably do the military domination. Doubt they can do the economic without the military or the help from the corporate crapitalists like Apple, Nike, etc. And technologically they will be sucking wind once they dominate everyone else and have no one to steal their technology from.

The 2020 election will feature 80 million votes dropped on the post office and few weeks later they’ll tell us who won.

The 2024 election will feature 180 million votes dropped on the post office and a few weeks before election day, they’ll tell us who won.
