–-(Ammoland.com)- The seditious Press and the Democrat Party leadership, along with the other Radical Left members of Congress, assail Trump in his efforts to protect this Nation and its people in the midst of the worst pandemic to hit both the U.S. and the world since the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918, over a century ago. But, even as the Press and Democrats continue to assail the U.S. President, they either ignore, or defend, outright, China’s response to the plague, notwithstanding that the Coronavirus arose in China, and notwithstanding that, far from acting as a harbinger of the danger to the world presented by this novel and deadly virus, China’s Premier Xi Jinping hid the spread of the virus in China, for several weeks, “silencing” medical practitioners in Wuhan who sounded the alarm, or who sought to sound the alarm, and denying access of medical CDC experts from the U.S., willing to risk their own lives to assist China in containing the spread of the disease.
Premier Xi has, as a matter of policy, either permitted or orchestrated the rapid dissemination of the virus across the world: hitting Italy, Spain and, ultimately, the U.S., particularly hard.
Arguably, Premier Xi and his Government deliberately abetted the spread of the virus across the world. This would be consistent with his objective, not merely to enhance China’s prestige in the world but to make China the preeminent power in the world.
Undoubtedly, the Autocratic Communist Regime of Xi Jinping poses the gravest economic, military, and geopolitical threat to the security and well-being of our Nation and people since the mid-twentieth century, when the USSR posed the greatest threat to our national security. Was the release of the viral plague upon the U.S. and upon the rest of the world, a secretive, diabolical component of Premier Xi’s geopolitical strategy to acquire economic dominance over the U.S.? Conceivably!
In one respect, China poses a greater threat to the preservation of a free Constitutional Republic than the USSR ever posed. One could never imagine the USSR buying up our Nation's assets. But, during the last decade, China has been doing just that: quietly purchasing our Nation’s real estate and industrial assets. Why would a powerful enemy nation go through the trouble of attempting to destroy another powerful nation militarily, when that enemy might feasibly, by keeping an enemy nation intact, take over that nation's assets and resources, using those assets and resources to extend its own power and influence?
China is adept at using our own market principles and the naked greed of pseudo-Americans against us; relying on pathological, ruthless, amoral business interests and, worse, ruthless, amoral members of our own Government, willing to sell out our Nation for their own short-term personal gain.
Hillary Clinton represents one textbook example of a pseudo-American who shamelessly, unabashedly had used her position as Secretary of State in the Obama Administration for personal gain, amassing a fortune for herself, her husband, and her daughter. One can imagine how Hillary Clinton might have misused the Office of the Chief Executive of the Nation to extend that personal fortune a hundred-fold or a thousand-fold, profaning the Constitution, and irreparably harming the Nation and its people. And, then there is Joe Biden, the Democrat Party's shining nominee for U.S. President, who, as Obama's Vice President, happened to make a tidy sum for himself and his son, selling our Country out to China. As reported in Breitbart
“In 2013, less than two weeks after accompanying his father on an official visit to Beijing–and despite his lack of pertinent expertise–Hunter Biden secured $1 billion (later raised to $1.5 billion) from the state-owned Bank of China for his newly formed investment firm, Bohai Harvest RST (BHR). This was in addition to the first-of-its-kind deal the Chinese government awarded Biden’s private equity firm Rosemont Seneca in the recently formed Shanghai Free-Trade Zone, a deal that allowed the firm to focus on international acquisitions.
‘With the backing of the state-owned Bank of China, one of the country’s ‘big four’ financial institutions, BHR had access to the types of deals that most Western firms only dreamed of, including IPOs of state-owned companies,’ Schweizer and McLeod write, noting that Biden’s firm “invested in strategically sensitive assets in both China and the United States.”
One can only imagine the sort of shady deals Biden would make with China's Premier Xi if Biden were to become U.S. President: Xi and Joe, business partners–Xi using Joe for a sinister purpose; to extend the power of China throughout the world; and Joe, using Xi, for a most ignoble, seditious purpose; making a killing for himself and for his family, enabling the Bidens to retire in regal splendor, perhaps on Bora Bora, for the rest of their natural lives.
China definitely has an interest in buying up American assets. The website, usnews.com
reported alarming purchases by Chinese interests of our Nation's assets in the last five years, especially:
“The concept of ‘Made in America’ is slowly giving way to ‘Made by China’ in America,’ as Chinese investors are increasingly snatching up U.S.-based companies and assets and raising the eyebrows of some regulators and market spectators.
Since the turn of the new year, Chinese suitors have either announced interest in or closed on several multibillion-dollar acquisitions of American institutions, such as General Electric's appliance wing, construction manufacturer Terex, Starwood Hotels, California-based tech company Ingram Micro and finance and production outfit Legendary Entertainment.
And although the full value of the deal has yet to be publicly unveiled, the Chicago Stock Exchange announced in February that it planned to be acquired by the China-based Chongqing Casin Enterprise Group at some point later in 2016.
‘This proposed acquisition would be the first time a Chinese-owned, possibly state-influenced firm maintained direct access into the $22 trillion U.S. equity marketplace,’ a group of congressional representatives said in a letter to a top Treasury Department official back in February, requesting a ‘full and rigorous investigation into this proposed acquisition to address our concerns and provide clear information to the American people.’
Chinese foreign direct investment into the U.S. hit a record $15.7 billion in 2015, up 30 percent from the year prior, according to economic analysts at the Rhodium Group. A separate Rhodium report published last month estimated 83 percent of America's congressional districts were home to some form of Chinese investment.
In few industries is China's investment growth more apparent than real estate. A report published Sunday by the nonprofit Asia Society and the Rosen Consulting Group estimates Chinese buyers between 2010 and 2015 spent at least $93 billion on American residential property, with total expenses rising at an average annual rate of about 20 percent each year.
Over that period, Chinese companies and individuals also bought up at least $17.1 billion in existing office buildings, hotels and other commercial buildings on U.S. soil. By the end of 2015, the report found, China was the source of at least $350 billion in U.S. real estate holdings and investments, and costs for Chinese-backed construction projects in the U.S. had climbed to at least $15 billion.
‘Chinese direct investment in U.S. real estate was negligible until 2010 but has since grown dramatically and visibly,’ the report said. ‘While it is not as politically sensitive and does not directly impact national security as does Chinese investment in U.S. technology or telecommunications, real estate affects more people and communities and involves policymakers at multiple levels.’
China is stepping up its efforts on multiple fronts to press for world economic, geopolitical, and military dominance.
This is a singularly depressing commentary on the present state of affairs in our Country. And, what is the seditious Press and other Anti-Constitutional elements within our Nation doing to sound the alarm over the threat posed by China to our National Security? Nothing.
The Press and the Democrat Party Leadership and other Radical Left members of Congress, along with the Bureaucratic Deep State, seem, rather, fixated on Russia, a minor player in present world affairs, and no appreciable threat to our Nation when compared to the present and dire threat posed by China.
In fact, this seditious Press, the Democrat Party Leadership, and Radical Left members of Congress, along with the Bureaucratic Deep State seem intent on either ignoring China or defending China and Chinese interests; and portraying the Globalist elites of Europe, who embrace the concept of, and are working toward, the creation of a unified transatlantic Government, comprising the EU, the U.S., and the Commonwealth Nations, as our friends; all the while denigrating, besmirching, antagonizing, and working endlessly on the task of undermining our own President, Donald Trump, who is attempting to place our Nation's interests first, and who is attempting to preserve the independence and sovereignty of the United States. Imagine that!
This sorry state of affairs points to the colossal and imminent danger to both the preservation of a free Constitutional Republic and to the preservation of the fundamental, immutable, and unalienable rights and liberties of the Nation’s citizenry that reprehensible, disruptive, disreputable forces–both inside and outside our Nation–continuously pose for our Nation and for our people.
