Delivering an address to the public about the U.S. policy on China, Attorney General William Barr emphasized that he hopes the communist leaders in Beijing view his remarks as “especially disgusting.”

Referring to FBI Director Chris Wray’s speech last week in which he warned of the CCP’s “nefarious and even illegal conduct,” Barr highlighted that China’s leaders reacted in disgust.

“Now, Chris Wray told me that shortly after his speech last week, one of the leaders of the Chinese communist party pronounced that his speech was particularly disgusting,” Barr said, announcing that he and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be working in the coming days to reevaluate the U.S. relationship with China.

He continued, “I told him that I was gonna aim today to be despicable, but I’ll settle for especially disgusting. But, no matter how the Chinese seek to characterize it, I do hope that my speech and Mike Pompeo’s speech will encourage the American people to reevaluate their relationship with China so long as it continues to be ruled by the Chinese Communist Party.”

Barr warned of the ‘economic blitzkrieg’ China’s currently engaged in as their communist leaders seek to rise to the top of the world economy and spread the ideas of socialism and communism, even seeking to export those ideas to the U.S., ridding it of capitalism and the American dream.”

Analysts say President Joe Biden is unlikely to “prompt dramatic sanctions action on Iran’s oil exports” due to “worries about boosting oil prices and angering top buyer China” according to Reuters.

Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, House Republican Representative Steve Scalise, said the administration had made it easier for Iran to sell its oil, generating revenues that were being used to “go fund terrorist activity.”

The Biden administration has maintained for months that among its primary goals is to keep the Gaza conflict between terror group Hamas and Israel from turning into a wider regional war. However, House Republican leaders accused President Joe Biden of failing to enforce existing measures and said they would take up this week a series of bills to sharpen sanctions on Iran.

Kimberly Donovan, a sanctions and anti-money laundering expert at the Atlantic Council, said that oil-related sanctions have not been strictly enforced in the past couple of years.

“I would not expect the administration to tighten enforcement in response to Iran’s missile and drone attacks against Israel over the weekend, mainly for concerns (that) could lead to increases in oil prices,” she said.

“The price of oil and ultimately the prices of gas at the pump become critical during an election year.”
