When I served as an Army Plans Officer in Germany, I worked in a secure-compartmentalized intelligence facility (SCIF) drafting global contingency plans as a part of a Corps staff. In that role, I worked with some of the finest officers and enlisted members from all branches of the military and with backgrounds in all types of operations, including engineering, intelligence, supply, civil affairs, medical, artillery, and infantry. The experience helped me to develop perspective and insight into how to connect the dots and see the big strategic picture.
What follows is my assessment of one scenario that could explain the dangerously arbitrary and inexplicable foreign policy we are currently seeing out of the Biden administration as it relates to China. The reader should understand that the following assessment is based on my professional speculation, although the theories advanced make neat sense of the chaos we are observing. I will address three separate, massively significant occurrences and tie them together as they relate to the Biden policy on China. My assessment below is focused on communicating the big picture, and therefore is only presented at a very high level in this piece. Rest assured there are many more moving parts than those identified here.
The story begins in the late summer or fall of 2019. SARS-COV-2 (COVID) had evidently escaped or been released from a CCP military controlled lab in Wuhan, China. The local population had become sick, doctors and researchers fell ill, and Beijing began to implement a series of responses. They told the world it was not communicable between humans, and they had it under control. At the same time, they sealed off Wuhan to travel within China, but opened Wuhan up to international travel, spreading the virus all over the world.
In response, President Trump began a massive Chinese-accountability campaign, desperately opposed by the media and elements of the residual government-media complex that was still an artifact from the Obama years. President Trump referred to the virus as the “China Virus,” closed off travel from China to the US, proposed that the virus originated from the Wuhan Lab, and famously suggested that the CCP owed the US at least $10 trillion in reparations.
Under the high-pressure trade scheme previously implemented by Trump against the CCP, including tariffs, the Chinese economy had been experiencing a massive economic setback vis-à-vis the US. Beijing understood that if Trump were permitted to continue to push the international community toward Chinese accountability for COVID, he would likely succeed. This would be due to massive popular support for such an approach as well as the unmatched international influence of the US.
What China faced was therefore a complete collapse of all of its efforts at ascendency over the previous decades. This realization must have been chilling. They observed how Trump pushed back aggressively against the CCP-controlled WHO, and how he seemingly refused to be bullied by the CCP-influenced US media. The Chinese also understood that should the US take a different tack, one of ignoring or misdirecting on the origin of COVID, accountability might be avoided.
The 2020 Election
The CCP understood they urgently needed to come up with a plan to save themselves from Trump. They were trapped in a terrible trade situation thanks to Trump’s aggressive policies, and were facing looming accountability for COVID, which threatened to set them back decades if not more. They considered their options. They knew that their odds for survival with Trump in office were slim. They had to either get him out (through impeachment or otherwise) or at least, make sure he was not reelected.
China would have most certainly, without any doubt, considered their odds for influencing the 2020 presidential election. I believe they must have been giddy with excitement when they realized how straightforward and feasible it would be to rig a US election.
Dominion Voting Systems is the company that manufactures the computers on which many US states conduct their elections. Dominion Voting Systems is owned by a company named Staple Street Capital. As reported by the Gateway Pundit, “On Oct 8, 2020, Staple Street Capital filed SEC Form D, [showing] offerings and sales amounts of $400,000,000, with the Sales Compensation Recipient identified as UBS Securities. … UBS Securities is a Swiss investment bank which owns 24.99% of UBS Securities Co LTD, a Chinese Investment Bank. The remaining 75% of UBS Securities CO LTD is owned by the Chinese government,” the report noted. Further, it has been reported that the Core Infrastructure Manager of Information Technology at Dominion Voting Systems, Anthony Huang, worked for China Telecom from 1998-2002. China Telecom is reportedly “wholly run by the Chinese government, and has been identified by the U.S. Department of Defense as having collaborated with the country’s military for over two decades.”
China must have identified the opportunity Dominion presented. To the extent the CCP determined to interfere in the election, therefore, the question would remain: which candidate to back? Keep in mind the diverse and talented field of aspiring challengers to Trump during the Democratic presidential primary season leading to 2020. There were many popular, dynamic and charismatic candidates, including Sens. Liz Warren, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand and Kamala Harris. There were other big names such as Michael Bloomberg, Pete Buttigieg, Tom Steyer, Julian Castro, and Beto O’Rourke.
But there was one candidate who would have been particularly intriguing to Beijing. It has been widely reported that the Biden family received hundreds of millions of dollars from Beijing. In 2014, when then Vice President Biden was in Beijing meeting with Xi Jinping, Hunter Biden left with a $1.5 billion investment from the Chinese government in his Rosemont Seneca Partners firm, according to a report by Peter Schweizer in his 2018 book “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.” The New York Post reported that “[i]n 2015, a state-backed real estate conglomerate acquired a controlling stake in Rosemont Realty, a sister company of Rosemont Seneca where Hunter served as an advisor. As part of the deal, the Chinese promised $3 billion for commercial office property acquisitions in the US — a major windfall for the company.” The piece further provides that in May 2017, Hunter met with Ye Jianming, chairman of Chinese energy company CEFC, to discuss investment opportunities in the US. After the meeting, Ye reportedly sent a 2.8-carat diamond to Hunter along with a “thank you” card. Additionally, anonymous Chinese donors contributed more than $22 million to the Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania. Other financial connections between the Bidens and China have been identified, but I present only a sample here to provide some context for what follows.
Recall that, for quite some time, Joe Biden was not considered a particularly popular or strong candidate for the Presidency. He placed fourth by votes in Iowa, and fifth in New Hampshire. After that, in a very conspicuous display of coordinated support, the entire Democrat establishment seemed to come to his vociferous aid, and he won the South Carolina primary. This was despite the fact that real questions were being raised from all quarters about Biden’s physical and mental fitness. His obvious deterioration, when compared to his demeanor only a few years ago, was quite conspicuous and alarming. Nonetheless, these concerns were aggressively and abruptly dismissed in the media. Would Biden’s vulnerability and frailty have proven attractive to Beijing? Maybe. Suddenly, only about 8 months before the general election, ten of his former competitors endorsed him as the nominee. From that point on, Biden was the presumptive nominee.
As nominee, Biden frequently directed pointed criticism at President Trump’s response to COVID, in particular to Trump’s consistent habit of pointing blame at the Chinese government. Biden called Trump’s responses to the emerging virus “xenophobic” and repeatedly criticized Trump’s imposition of a travel ban from China.
The 2020 election was riddled with anomalies. From the reporting, the calling of states, the progress of vote counts, the lack of transparency, to the protracted duration of the some of the vote counts, commentators have been speculating about the election with unabating concern every day since it was held. Evidence has been advanced that is alleged to show that Dominion Voting Systems computers were accessed by Chinese actors during the 2020 election. An affidavit affixed to a Georgia lawsuit brought by attorney Sidney Powell claims to present “unambiguous evidence” that Dominion Voting Systems servers were accessible to and were “certainly compromised by rogue actors, such as Iran and China. The Dominion software was accessed by agents acting on behalf of China and Iran in order to monitor and manipulate elections, including the most recent US general election in 2020.” Other analyses found Dominion’s server has been accessed by a network from Hunan, China. Such activities have widely been cited as possible explanations for the seemingly impossible, official election results observed on November 3, 2020 and in the days and weeks following. Without a doubt, 2020 was likely one of the most controversial elections in modern history.
In the wake of the election, lawsuits have been filed, affidavits of fraud assembled, audits commissioned, and analyses conducted. Much debate remains on what actually took place. What is not debatable is that the allegation of widespread fraud in the 2020 election is one of, if not the most, censored topic in America. No one is allowed to ask any question, no matter how reasonable or obvious, without being aggressively attacked and marginalized by the government-media complex. The Biden administration’s DHS has gone so far as to classify claims of fraud in the 2020 election as a “potential terror threat.” I can think of no other major political issue of such broad interest and with so many evident questions that has been so ruthlessly demonized and prohibited from discussion. Why is that?
The Biden Presidency
Did Biden really with the election? Is he a CCP plant? Did the Chinese government facilitate a full-scale political coup, with the cooperation of the Democrat Party, within the greatest and most formidable democracy the world has ever seen? What clues can be gleaned from Biden’s behavior since assuming office of the President?
First, immediately upon assuming office, the government-media complex went into overdrive to suppress any suggestion that the virus originated from a Chinese lab. We all remember the “bat soup” theory that was widely offered as the only reasonable explanation. We also remember that anyone who suggested the obvious: that the corona virus might have originated from the corona virus lab operating in the city where the virus appeared, was roundly vilified and cancelled. That is very odd. Why would the government-media complex not want the American people to know the truth about the virus origin? It appeared they were acting to protect the Chinese, but why? Now, of course, we know with almost certainty that the virus was created by Chinese scientists in a lab. The government-media complex was lying.
Whatever the reason, it is clear that the people who least benefited from Biden’s approach were the American people, and the people who benefited the most were the CCP.
The practice of carefully-curating the narrative, almost obsessively and without regard for legitimate or widely-harbored questions, has been one hallmark of the Biden administration and its media confederates. So has the practice of demonizing those who subscribe to or raise the possibility of any counter-narratives. The Biden administration, in partnership with their media allies, have systematically policed the avenues of formerly-free expression, such as the major social media platforms, to squelch any question, any dissent, and any conversation, even as they change the official narrative on a near-daily basis. This type of censorship is the norm in the Chinese police state, but thankfully has remained a mostly foreign experience for most Americans, until today.
There have many other actions taken and decisions made by the Biden administration that appear to be directly harmful to US interests and beneficial to the CCP of China. However, I am going to omit discussion of those here, and skip directly from the most salient, Chinese, and pervasive aspect of the Biden administration (narrative control and propaganda), to the most recent issue that has arisen: that of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
After the US invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, the US went on the build some of the most robust military, intelligence and diplomatic apparatus in the US inventory, right in Afghanistan. One can appreciate why: Afghanistan lies in one of the most strategically important areas of the world. Afghanistan shares a 572-mile-long border with Iran. And, critically, the worn-torn country shares a 47-mile-long border with China! Notably, the two main countries alleged to have hacked our 2020 elections were Iran and China.
Until just days ago, the US maintained an enormous military presence in Afghanistan. At Bagram Airfield alone, which covers 6 square miles, over 40,000 people have been employed at any given time and over 100,000 US troops have spent time there. The prison on the Airbase holds nearly 5,000 inmates at a time. Major medical facilities, two massive runways, parking spots for over 100 fighter jets, all exist at Bagram, which reportedly cost over $800 Billion to construct.
The US spent 20 years in Afghanistan, undoubtedly using the country as an outpost to conduct intelligence gathering against regional powers such as China, Pakistan and Iran. Then, very abruptly, President Biden decided to pull everyone out with no warning or explanation and go on vacation to Camp David. Meanwhile, Taliban warlords have now inherited the billions of dollars of military equipment and facilities abandoned by the US.
It is painful, as a veteran of the Global War on Terror, to witness the utter contempt displayed by Biden to the thousands of US veterans who have served in that fight over the last two decades. Biden has gifted our sworn enemies, who have killed our comrades, with billions of dollars of US weaponry, which will undoubtedly be used against US interests around the world. What can explain such a move? Vindictiveness to veterans? Surely there is more to the story.
I propose one explanation for all of the above: Biden, as China’s US Viceroy, was ordered by Beijing to pull out of Afghanistan. That is the only reasonable explanation I can come up with. China owns the putative US president, Joe Biden. The implications for national security global peace are chilling.
To be clear: It appears to me, in my professional opinion as a former US Army Plans Officer, JAG Officer, attorney, and patriot, that the US has been taken over in a political coup co-sponsored by the Democrat Party, the CCP, and the government-media complex.
They are wasting zero time wielding their newfound power to pillage and destroy the United States. In the span of only seven short months, they have trashed the US economy, defiled the rule of law, destroyed the public health system, opened the border completely, obliterated our legacy in Afghanistan, imposed draconian infringements on civil liberties, weaponized the justice system, crippled law enforcement apparatus, deployed the intelligence services against their political opponents, indoctrinated and purged the military, and closed our public-school systems. All this, of course, after they stole a US presidential election.
The only force left to oppose this juggernaut is the American Patriot. Now is the Final Hour; this is the Final Hill. If we don’t save the country now, it will most assuredly be lost forever.
