While the world is transfixed on Russia, we can’t forget we have another enemy, not that far away. The communist regime of China has been a growing problem for many years.
During the Trump administration, we took that threat seriously. Not only did Trump confront China’s unfair trade practices with tariffs, but his DOJ also worked tirelessly to stop Chinese spying attempts.
One measure was called the China Initiative, which rooted out espionage attempts by figures working for the Chinese government. But leftist groups complained, claiming it was racist. So guess what China Joe did?
From Daily Caller:
The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the termination of the China Initiative Wednesday citing agreement with Asian-American groups critical of the anti-espionage strategy…
In addition to the high-profile December 2021 conviction of Harvard nanotechnology professor Charles Lieber, the Department of Justice website lists eight examples of successful 2021 China Initiative cases…
Olsen made clear to address China Initiative critics’ claims that the program had “disproportionately” targeted ethnic Chinese, and as a result was racist in nature.
Matthew Olsen, of the Department of Justice, cowed to leftist groups (connected to China) which claimed the China Initiative targeted ethnic Chinese people. Um… duh. This project was preventing the Chinese government from spying on America. By its very nature, it was going to involve investigating Chinese people.
There are very few Hispanics working for the Communist Chinese Party.
It seems Biden’s woke DOJ cared more about appeasing obvious CCP-backed groups to avoid being called racist. Even though this program stopped numerous crimes, including theft, misinformation campaigns, illegal exporting, and more. But I guess it’s more important that snowflakes aren’t offended.
Asian-Americans were not being targeted in this operation. Simply people with known ties to the CCP. That is, people who worked for the Chinese government and had reason to raise alarm. Why shouldn’t our DOJ investigate them? Olsen claims this program is being replaced.
Yeah, something tells me a Biden-backed program will be as effective as anything else he does.
Whose side do you think Biden is on?
- Biden’s DOJ killed a Trump-era program that stopped Chinese spies.
- CCP-backed groups claimed the program was “racist.”
- Biden replaced it with another program, which might not be as effective.
