BACKGROUNDER: Bonnie Jenkins, Biden’s nominee for Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs, has a history on the hard left of the US foreign policy establishment, including active cooperation with pro-North Korean elements.
Jake Sullivan is linked to policies which have furthered the rise of Communist China, and he has taken considerable amounts of money from entities either funded by the Chinese Communist Party or doing business with it.
Bannons War Room — Sam Faddis, former CIA officer, puts Bill Burns compromised position in perspective: it would be like putting a KGB guy in charge of the CIA during the Cold War.
Burns comes to CIA from his position as head of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The name appears intended to give the impression that that the institute functions as some sort of advocate for world peace. In fact, it appears to be part of the United Front, a worldwide Chinese effort to co-opt foreign elites and influence them to adopt pro-CCP policies.
Margon’s hatred for Israel was not surprising. The leftist extremist was heading up the Human Rights Watch office in Washington D.C. HRW has defended BDS and recently issued a report falsely accusing Israel of apartheid.
The newest addition to Xi Jinping’s Dream Team is Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the new U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. During her recent confirmation hearing before the Senate she assured Senators she would take a tough line on China, but that seems difficult to believe given her past behavior.
What wouldn’t Russia or China give to know how our nation’s leaders might respond to a provocation against Ukraine or Taiwan — or how they might exploit this information to our detriment? That is why those entrusted with our nation’s secrets are bound under penalty of law to protect those secrets. And it is why we cannot normalize leaks of those secrets.
The media is touting Biden’s pick of Robert Santos as historic because he would be the first “census director of color”. Emphasizing the race or ethnicity of Biden’s nominees has become the media’s usual tactic for obscuring their radicalism while accusing their critics of racism.
Colin Kahl came to this administration from a stint at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University, which has troubling ties to the CCP. Such entities, part of China’s United Front activities, focus on coopting foreign elites and are a dime a dozen now in the United States. Our policies have made the Chinese rich, and that wealth has bought a lot of influence.
In this role as the new CIA Director, Williams Burns will head an organization confronting an increasingly active and aggressive Chinese spy apparatus. Unfortunately, Burns, like so many other Biden appointees, is also quite possibly compromised by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
