China recently threatened what it termed “continuous nuclear war” against Japan if it dared to intervene to prevent the “liberation of Taiwan.” Beijing Biden, the Manchurian President, and his court mandarins remained silent. It may seem odd that the United States would stand idly by while one of its key allies in the Pacific is overtly threatened with annihilation, but in truth such a non-response was predictable.
We may be standing on the edge of a hot war with China, but a covert Chinese offensive against us began long ago and it has been devastatingly successful. Washington is no longer in friendly hands. We now live in a nation whose key leaders have all been co-opted by the Chinese and take their marching orders from Xi Jinping.
This is not hyperbole. Biden himself – via his bagman Hunter – was on the receiving end of $1.5 billion in Chinese money in 2013. Nobody really knows how much additional cash came his way over the years. Our new CIA Director, our Secretary of State, and an almost endless procession of other key officials in national security positions have all worked closely with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and in many cases with Chinese intelligence. If Xi Jinping himself was selecting Joe’s cabinet, and maybe his is, he could not do a better job of compromising American security.
China knows this. It engineered this. It is now moving aggressively to capitalize on the fact that it has successfully neutralized our national security apparatus. In the face of a rising threat to the balance of power that has existed in East Asia since 1945, our administration sits motionless and impotent.
Meanwhile, out in the Pacific, the reality of the situation is all too apparent. A recent Japanese white paper on national defense sounded the alarm quite loudly.
“China has relentlessly continued attempts to unilaterally change the status quo by coercion in the sea area around the Senkaku Islands, leading to a grave matter of concern. Its actions involving unilateral assertions over Japan’s territorial waters around the Senkaku Islands are, fundamentally, a violation of international law.”
“China has further intensified military activities around Taiwan including Chinese aircrafts’ entering the southwestern airspace of Taiwan… The overall military balance between China and Taiwan is tilting to China’s favor, and the gap appears to be growing year by year. “
“Therefore, it is necessary that we pay close attention to the situation with a sense of crisis more than ever before.”BreakingDefense.com
The Chinese threats to Japan may seem extreme but Tokyo is not the only target for Beijing. China also recently explicitly threatened the U.S. with “serious consequences” if it continued its actions over Taiwan’s airspace. This was an apparent reference to the fact that the U.S. Air Force delivered “diplomatic mail” to the de facto U.S. embassy in Taipei. China, of course, considers Taiwan a breakaway province and insists that it has the right to tell the United States what it can and cannot do on island.
During the Spanish Civil War, a Nationalist general named Mola Vidal inadvertently coined the phrase, fifth column, which has come to mean a group or faction within a nation working to subvert it. Vidal was referring to a fifth column, meaning supporters within Madrid who were prepared to cooperate with the four columns of troops he had prepared to assault the city.
We have at work inside the United States today a fifth column, which is already cooperating with our number one strategic adversary – China. This fifth column is prepared to do more than simply steer American policy generally in favor of Beijing and the CCP. These individuals made their choice years ago and decided to throw in their lot with the Chinese Communists and to work to further the interests of Beijing rather than the American people.
These minions of Xi Jinping now occupy some of the most important and powerful national security positions in our nation including the White House. This is no accident. It is the product of decades of work by Chinese operatives and a whole host of organizations that operate under the banner of the Chinese United Front.
Beijing is not going to squander this opportunity. It is preparing to flex its muscles, assert itself and exploit the opening provided. Bellicose threats against Taiwan and Japan and other regional actors are going to be succeeded by physical actions.
In a speech given only weeks ago, marking the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party, Xi Jinping stated that China has an “unshakeable commitment” to reunification with Taiwan and that he would “never allow anyone to bully, oppress or subjugate China.” Xi went on to state, “Anyone who dares try to do that will have their heads bashed bloody against the Great Wall of Steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people.”
This is not just rhetoric. China carried out live-fire military exercises around Taiwan in April. Its incursions into Taiwanese air space have increased dramatically. A Japanese defense official even suggested recently that a Chinese attack on Hawaii was possible.
China need not launch an actual invasion of Taiwan however to exploit the opening provided to it. An even more attractive prospect for them would be the imposition of a blockade against the island nation. Such a blockade would cut off air and naval traffic and likely shut down Taiwan’s access to information networks as well.
In such a case, Beijing would present the United States and its pro-CCP leaders with a fait accompli. To break the blockade, the United States and its allies would have to summon the will to take the offensive and initiate hostile action against China. Meanwhile, Taiwan, cut off from the world, would rapidly deplete its stockpiles of critical supplies and inevitably have to submit to Beijing’s will.
If Beijing imposes a blockade on Taiwan tomorrow there is essentially no chance whatsoever that the Biden administration is going to take any meaningful action to break that blockade. Support for Taipei will not be forthcoming from a team of men and women who sold their souls to Beijing a long time ago.
Taiwan will go the way of Hong Kong. The Chinese Communist Party will take another step toward world domination, and Beijing Biden and his court eunuchs will remain silent.
