“Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
For a long time, anyone who has followed the career of Joe Biden has had grave reservations about what a Biden Presidency would portend. It is not simply that the man has always been singularly unimpressive. It is that all of the available information suggests strongly that he has been at the heart of a massive influence-peddling scheme for years and that the Communist Chinese in particular have funneled vast sums of money to him via his son Hunter.
The Chinese have for decades put massive effort into buying American politicians and policymakers. The appearance was, to anyone who would bother to look at the evidence, that they may well have bought Biden.
Anyone taking a hard look at the people Biden brought into his cabinet had similar concerns about those individuals. If Xi Jinping had chosen them, they could hardly have been more friendly to CCP interests or have collectively taken more money from the Chinese over the years. Pulling them all together in one team suggested strongly that we were about to see a massive shift in American policy, in favor of the Communist Party of China (CCP).
There were misgivings. There was angst. All that is behind us now. It is no longer time for concern. It is time for fear and action. What we thought might happen is, in fact, happening every day.
Biden is not simply incompetent. He and his team can only be described as actively and aggressively working against the national interests of the United States and in favor of our enemies, particularly the Chinese.
Consider what he has done in the seven months he has been in office:
Oil industry: Biden’s clear intent is to completely destroy the American oil and gas industry. While he justifies his actions as related to concern about greenhouse gases, the result of his decisions is to simply move production abroad and increase our dependence on other nations for energy. He shut down the Keystone pipeline. He backed off on opposition to the Nord Stream pipeline into Germany, thereby allowing Russia more oil production. He put any new Alaskan production on permanent hold and froze any new exploration and development auctions in the lower 48 states and offshore.
Border: Biden rolled back virtually every action Trump had taken on the border. In effect, our southern border has ceased to exist in any meaningful fashion. We are seeing an unprecedented number of illegal immigrants. Fentanyl is flooding the nation. We have no capacity to keep terrorists, biological agents, or other threats from entering our nation via this route.
Huawei: Under Trump, the Chinese telecommunications firm Huawei was blacklisted for involvement in espionage and the theft of American technology. Recently the Biden administration announced American chip producers would once again be cleared to sell to Huawei.
National Defense: In real terms, after inflation, Biden cut our defense budget significantly. The Army will be reduced in size. Shipbuilding for the Navy is down. The Air Force is decreasing in size. As analysts warn of the possibility of a shooting war with China, we are unilaterally disarming.
Chinese espionage: Criminal cases against a number of Chinese intelligence officers have been dismissed by the Department of Justice. A Trump-era crackdown on Chinese espionage in the United States is being reviewed on the grounds that it may be “racist” and discriminatory. Chinese Confucius Institutes whose purpose is to target American students and academics are once again welcome on U.S. college campuses.
Afghanistan: Biden’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal has been catastrophic. He has severely damaged American prestige. He has abandoned our allies and thousands of American citizens to the enemy. He has gifted the Taliban billions of dollars worth of sophisticated weapons and taken no action to destroy that equipment or render it inert. The world has seen the unthinkable, an American President and his advisors admitting that they are relying upon the goodwill of the Taliban to get our people out of Kabul safely. NATO is fractured. The British Parliament has taken the unprecedented step of formally rebuking an American President.

The worst is yet to come.
Our trade relations with China are “under review.” That signals that tariffs and other sanctions put in place under Trump will soon be dismantled. Biden is on record as favoring that.
The Biden administration has announced that it considers the number one threat to national security to be domestic extremists and white supremacists, otherwise defined as opponents of this administration. Cooperation between the National Security Council and Big Tech is designed to stifle free speech and target political opponents. The coming vaccine passports threaten to expand into a full-fledged American version of the Chinese social credit system.
Joe Biden is dispatching John Kerry to mainland China. Officially the talks concern climate change. The concern is high that Kerry, one of the architects of the disastrous Iran nuclear deal intends to negotiate away the independent status of the island of Taiwan. Kerry is on record as believing Taiwan “belongs” to China and supporting a “one China” policy.
Secretary of State Tony Blinken has effectively invited the Communist Chinese to step into the vacuum left by our withdrawal from Afghanistan. He describes Chinese involvement in Afghanistan as a “positive thing.” The vast mineral wealth of Afghanistan now belongs to China, which already has a huge strategic advantage in terms of rare earth minerals.

We are in an unprecedented situation. We have had ineffective Presidents before. We have never had one that was actively working against our nation for the benefit of a foreign power. It appears we do now.
We need to stop dancing around this fact. Concern about being accused of fear-mongering or starting some sort of modern-day “Red Scare” should not stop us from stating the obvious. There are no conceivable justifications for the actions Biden has taken over the last seven months other than a desire to harm the United States and diminish its status in the world. Left unchallenged this man will radically alter the balance of power in the world and make Communist China the world’s leading power.
The Manchurian Candidate was once fiction. No longer. We are living it every day. It is time to think the unthinkable. This is treason.
