Those sneaky communist hooligans are always up to something! And guess what? They are infiltrating our schools to convert US students into communist subversive spies!
The intelligence community is blowing the whistle on this threat. FOX News explains the sad truth:
“U.S. Intelligence agencies continue to warn of Beijing’s spying activities in the U.S. – including commercial espionage and the stealing of intellectual property.
“The Chinese counter-intelligence threat is more deep, more diverse, more vexing, more challenging, more comprehensive and more concerning than any counterintelligence threat that I can think of,” FBI Director Christopher Wray testified at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing last week.
And now, lawmakers are also focused on new allegations of China’s attempts to influence American academia and public opinion.
A report from the director of National Intelligence is blunt: “China’s intelligence services will exploit the openness of American society, especially academia and the scientific community…”
“It is widespread and it is dangerous and this is legislation designed to stop that,” Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz told Fox News about a bill he has re-introduced, The Stop Higher Education Espionage and Theft Act.”
This echoes the concerns that Vice President Mike Pence made last year, in a speech that was widely panned by Democrats.
“As we speak, Beijing is employing a whole-of-government approach, using political, economic and military tools, as well as propaganda, to advance its influence and benefit its interests in the United States,” Pence said last year during an address to the Hudson Institute.
Trump has taken it to China like never before as well, and is actually getting them to heel in his Great Trade War.
China just announced that their economy is growing much slower than anticipated because of our Trade War with them. They have just suspended U.S. Tariff Hikes. U.S. is doing very well. China wants to make a big and very comprehensive deal. It could happen, and rather soon!

The United States Treasury has taken in MANY billions of dollars from the Tariffs we are charging China and other countries that have not treated us fairly. In the meantime we are doing well in various Trade Negotiations currently going on. At some point this had to be done!

While Democrats are happy to sell our country down the river to Chinese communists, Trump is getting tough and getting results. It is clear that the Trump administration has China right where they want them. The ‘Russian collusion’ lie is only looking more and more ridiculous by the day.
