Now we know why everyone in power in Washington, D.C., is so afraid of China.
It’s not the country’s nuclear arsenal or its military, both of which, while advancing, are nowhere near as powerful as American armed force.
No. It’s information. Specifically, highly embarrassing information. And perhaps even information about illegal activities.
A former U.S. intelligence operative has warned that Beijing’s spy agencies have amassed (stolen) enough data to compile a dossier on every American adult.
The Epoch Times fills in the blanks:
During a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing this week, former Trump deputy national security adviser Matthew Pottinger said the CCP has stolen Americans' sensitive data via illicit methods, including cyber theft and hacking.
'Assembling dossiers on people has always been a feature of Leninist regimes, but Beijing's penetration of digital networks worldwide, including using 5G networks … has really taken this to a new level,' Pottinger said, referring to former Soviet dictator Vladimir Lenin.
With the information the CCP has obtained, he said, it 'now compiles dossiers on millions of foreign citizens around the world, using the material that it gathers to influence, target, intimidate, reward, blackmail, flatter, humiliate, and ultimately divide and conquer.'
Going a step further, Pottinger sounded the alarm that 'Beijing's stolen sensitive data is sufficient to build a dossier on every single American adult and on many of our children too, who are fair game under Beijing's rules of political warfare.'
Now letting Beijing get by with infecting our country and killing hundreds of thousands of Americans with a virus — along with thousands per day thanks to the chemicals Beijing is supplying to Mexico-based fentanyl cookers — makes a lot more sense, doesn’t it?
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
