FBI Director: China’s Threat ‘More Brazen’ Than Ever Before

FBI Director Christopher Wray spoke at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Monday night where he alerted “the threat to the West from the Chinese government is ‘more brazen’ and damaging than ever before” reports the Associated Press.

In an appearance on Fox News Monday, Sara Carter spoke about China’s distribution of the deadly drug fentanyl that is making its way into the United States through drug cartels at our southern border. Wray’s message was about China as one of our biggest threats to long-term economic security.

“When we tally up what we see in our investigations, over 2,000 of which are focused on the Chinese government trying to steal our information or technology, there’s just no country that presents a broader threat to our ideas, innovation, and economic security than China,” Wray said, according to a copy of the speech provided by the FBI to the AP.

Chinese government hackers are so prevalent and skilled, hey are obtaining more personal and corporate data than all other countries combined. The FBI has to open new cases to counter Chinese intelligence operations every 12 hours or so, Wray said.

“The harm from the Chinese government’s economic espionage isn’t just that its companies pull ahead based on illegally gotten technology. While they pull ahead, they push our companies and workers behind,” Wray said. “That harm — company failures, job losses — has been building for a decade to the crush we feel today. It’s harm felt across the country, by workers in a whole range of industries.”

The AP reports that Chinese government officials have repeatedly rejected accusations from the U.S. government, with the spokesman for the embassy in Washington saying Americans have “made groundless attacks” and malicious smears about Chinese cyberattacks.

Wray added, “I’ve spoken a lot about this threat since I became director” in 2017. “But I want to focus on it here tonight because it’s reached a new level — more brazen, more damaging, than ever before, and it’s vital — vital — that all of us focus on that threat together.”

The AP notes “the Justice Department in 2014 indicted five Chinese military officers on charges of hacking into major American corporations. One year later, the U.S. and China announced a deal at the White House to not steal each other’s intellectual property or trade secrets for commercial gain.” Similar to Iran, China’s words mean absolutely nothing.

    /It’s very difficult to believe a word out of the FBI’s collective mouth. It has lost a good deal of credibility.

    If you make a deal with China, they will hold you to the letter while they will evade for themselves.
    It’s passed the point of no return. I haven’t been able to find any household or apparel items not made in China for years and America’s biggest reta idlers such as Walmart, Target, Amazon, are all complicit, while importers, not manufacturers, make the most money.
    FBI isn’t going to arrest the wealthiest people in the world for selling Chinese made goods in the US.
    Probably the only question is how long until China pulls the strings in America’s biggest corporations and government, if they don’t already.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
