While the Democrats and corrupt news media – all of whom are beholden to China – were distracting the nation by painting Russia as our nation’s boogeyman, here is what was really happening in the world. – If you read just one item of news today, read the op/ed piece Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe authored for the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal.
In that piece, DNI Ratcliffe details chapter and verse why China – not Russia and a fading Putin – is America’s #1 adversary in the world, and how it is infiltrating our economic, economic and political systems to subvert our country to its will without firing a shot.
Within intelligence agencies, a healthy debate and shift in thinking is already under way. For the talented intelligence analysts and operators who came up during the Cold War, the Soviet Union and Russia have always been the focus. For others who rose through the ranks at the turn of this century, counterterrorism has been top of mind. But today we must look with clear eyes at the facts in front of us, which make plain that China should be America’s primary national security focus going forward.
Other nations must understand this is true for them as well. The world is being presented a choice between two wholly incompatible ideologies. China’s leaders seek to subordinate the rights of the individual to the will of the Communist Party. They exert government control over companies and subvert the privacy and freedom of their citizens with an authoritarian surveillance state.
We shouldn’t assume that Beijing’s efforts to drag the world back into the dark will fail just because the forces of good have triumphed before in modern times. China believes that a global order without it at the top is a historical aberration. It aims to change that and reverse the spread of liberty around the world.
Beijing is preparing for an open-ended period of confrontation with the U.S. Washington should also be prepared. Leaders must work across partisan divides to understand the threat, speak about it openly, and take action to address it.
This is our once-in-a-generation challenge. Americans have always risen to the moment, from defeating the scourge of fascism to bringing down the Iron Curtain. This generation will be judged by its response to China’s effort to reshape the world in its own image and replace America as the dominant superpower. The intelligence is clear. Our response must be as well.
Think of how America’s posture towards the ChiCom government is going to shift if China Joe Potato Head Biden, whose family has profited to the tune of millions from Chinese interests over the past decade, is installed into the presidency. Think of how easy it will then become for Xi Jinping and the ChiComs to subvert our political system, especially if the Democrats win both runoff elections in Georgia and assume control of both houses of congress.
In the media, talking heads at every major TV and radio outlet and newspapers have been spouting ChiCom talking points for years now, with their social media cohorts censoring anti-China messaging on their platforms. Our major universities have for years now taken millions from ChiCom interests to fund pro-China propaganda classes and professors.
This is serious stuff, folks. Deadly serious.
In the political system, ChiCom efforts to bribe and influence politicians is not limited to Washington. Watch the reactions of several governors as Sec. State Mike Pompeo details Chinese corruption at the state level at their Winter Meeting of the National Governors Association:

If you think it’s not really important for President Trump to prevail in his efforts to overturn the stolen election, think again. If you think the results of the Georgia runoffs and who ultimately controls the U.S. Senate are not important, think again.
Russia is just a Democrat fantasy, propaganda pushed out to the public for the last 5 years in a concerted effort with the corrupt news media to obscure the real threat to our nation posed by China. America has one clear and present adversary that is a real threat to its ultimate survival, and Vladimir Putin has nothing to do with it.

Hey, look, the FBI appears to be doing something productive! – It’s probably just a shiny object aimed at propping up the dumpster fire Bureau’s disastrous reputation, but FBI agents did seem to conduct an actual raid on a residence in Arizona’s Maricopa County (home to Phoenix and more than half of the state’s voters) on Sunday:
Report: FBI Raided Marcopia County Residence to Retrieve Evidence of Cyber Intrusion into Voting Systems…https://t.co/VaCZWy8iaN

From the story at Forbes.com:
On the morning of November 5, as the 2020 election hung in the balance, Arizona federal agents raided a two-story house in Fountain Hills, Maricopa County, a county that had become a key battleground in the presidential race. The agents were looking for evidence of a cyberattack on an unnamed organization and stolen voter data. They left with eight hard drives, three computers and a bag of USB sticks. The resident of the property, a 56-year-old IT expert named Elliot Kerwin, was served the warrant. He is not yet facing charges and was unreachable for comment at the time of publication. There is no indication that anything other than voters’ information, which can be acquired for a few hundred dollars in Arizona counties, was taken from the affected office.
The warrant, discovered by Forbes this week, reveals investigators have been looking into a computer intrusion at an unnamed “victim office,” which occurred from October 21 to November 4. At the Kerwin residence, they were looking for any evidence within the seized computers that showed they’d been used to access the IT network at the office, as well as “protected voters’ information” and any indication that it had been disseminated to other people.
Of the 15 county recorder’s offices contacted by Forbes about the investigation, only one, Maricopa County, confirmed voter data had been stolen, noting that a federal investigation was under way. The Maricopa County Recorder’s office, which is just 30 minutes’ drive south from Kerwin’s home, did not confirm whether or not the investigation was the same as that referred to in the search warrant.
Ok, so, the raid took place over a month ago and the county officials claim that a “federal investigation” is taking place. Meanwhile, the Electoral College is scheduled to meet and vote a week from today. Do any of you think the FBI and DOJ will produce a shred of results from their “investigation” if those findings would benefit Donald Trump and his quest to prove the massive voter fraud that the Democrats perpetrated in the state of Arizona?
If so, shoot me an email. I’ve got some prime real estate I’d like to talk to you about buying. Thanks.
That is all.
