The DNI (Director of National Intelligence), John Ratcliffe, has released a letter stating that China sought to influence the outcome of the recent US Presidential election. In his letter (pdf), Ratcliffe says that the CIA managed to suppress interference.
“Based on all available sources of intelligence, with definitions consistently applied, and reached independent of political considerations or undue pressure—that the People’s Republic of China sought to influence the 2020 U.S. federal elections,” Ratcliffe said.
Back in early December, an article released by Epoch Times offered a warning that the CCP was on the prowl. In an article titled Pro-CCP Organizations in the US Influenced the Election, Trevor Loudon (an expert on Marxist radical left movements) warned of pro-CCP groups in the US trying to flip the election.
“These are groups that owe their allegiance to communist China,” Louden said. “And they’re boasting about winning the election. You know, if you’re a leader of the communist party of China, would you really want this guy, Trump, in the White House for four more years? After all he’s done to counter your plans? Or would you use your assets in the United States to try and tip the scales in favor of a much more friendly candidate like Joe Biden?”
Clearly, they want Joe in the White House, not Trump. Do we need to wonder why?
Meanwhile, in the final days of Trump’s presidency, there has been a rush of sanctions against China. The clock might be ticking down for President Trump, but he’s got his eye on China. Among his measures against the CCP: an investment ban on nine more Chinese firms, to include Comac (a plane maker) and Xiaomi (a phone maker). These companies (according to the US Defense Department) are owned/controlled by China’s military. Of course, Trump has always been about “America First.”
Joe Biden? Not so much. He seems to have a more globalist approach.
“The best China strategy, I think, is one which gets every one of our — or at least what used to be our — allies on the same page,” Biden said. “It’s going to be a major priority for me in the opening weeks of my presidency to try to get us back on the same page with our allies.”
Two very different men, Joe and Donald. Two very different approaches to the CCP, a dangerous country that desperately wants to press its tentacles into American soil.
In early December, DNI Ratcliffe explained that China “poses the greatest threat to America today, and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom worldwide 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,” he wrote. “Many of China’s major public initiatives and prominent companies offer only a layer of camouflage to the activities of the Chinese Communist Party.”
Will this news change anything? Probably not. But it’s more proof that there was attempted outside influence in the 2020 Presidential election. It’s also proof that China was more than a little interested in the outcome of this election. One can only imagine why they hold such a vested interest in what we’re doing over here.
No worries, China! Your guy will soon enter the Oval Office. Great news for you. . .not so great for the rest of us.
