“The supreme act of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”-The Art of War
John Ratcliffe, the former Director of National Intelligence, said in 2020 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.”
Chinese Communist Party Infiltrates Schools
Confucius Institutes, founded in 2004, are China-funded “cultural centers” that operate on college campuses.
Senator Marsha Blackburn (R – TN) warns, “For years, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been using Confucius Institutes as a Trojan horse to push their propaganda and revisionist history in American Universities.
“No foreign government should have the ability to influence American education – especially a rogue regime that commits egregious human rights violations.”
Universities Corrupted by CCP Funding
Some of our greatest educational institutions have been corrupted by CCP money as there is no federal law that requires the publication of foreign gifts to universities.
The University of Pennsylvania created the Penn-Biden Center for Vice President Joe Biden when he left office. 10 Biden administration officials are on the Penn-Biden Center payroll.
The CCP had donated about $67 million to the University of Pennsylvania, the exact amount is not known because the University refuses to open its books. Their Penn-Biden Center is where several classified documents were recently found. Why classified documents were taken there remains a mystery.
While he was Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo was blocked from speaking at MIT because university officials thought it would offend the Chinese.
Representative Mike Gallagher, chairman of the new Select Committee on China says “Universities are addicted to the CCP money. This gives the CCP enormous access and influence on our college campuses. Congress must stop the CCP penetration of American higher education and its role in the growing anti-American attitudes of our most important institutions of learning.”
The Biden Administration Has Been Bought
According to Peter Schweitzer, author of “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China,” the CCP relies on a strategy of buying powerful figures in American politics and business to extend its influence.
“The strategy is to buy off the elites in the United States by giving them lucrative deals and special access to the Chinese market,” Schweitzer says.
Chad Wolf, then Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, warned in 2020 that “the CCP views the United States as a political and ideological threat and seeks to destroy the United States. Our struggle with the CCP is nothing short of a civilizational conflict.”
