A former CIA and National Security Council official called on Biden to replace Secretary of State Anthony Blinken in the wake of the US-China summit in Alaska that devolved into insults and little progress.
Former CIA analyst and National Security Council chief of staff Fred Fleitz said “it was one of the most incompetent displays I’ve ever seen by an American diplomat.”
According to Just the News, Fleitz said “Insulting the Chinese just before the talks begin, before the cameras causing them to lose face. I just thought, ‘This is amateur hour.'”
“Donald Trump knew how to deal with heads of state of our enemies. And these guys, I think they were just virtue signaling before the lapdog American media. It was a serious mistake and it set back our policies and it made them look inept because they weren’t ready for the counter attack by Chinese officials,” said Fleitz, who served as chief of staff on the Trump NSC.
Just the News reports that Fleitz thinks Biden should replace the nation’s top diplomat after Blinken’s pathetic show in Alaska.
“I think the president needs a new Secretary of State – someone with gravitas. Maybe Chris Coons, maybe Joe Lieberman – someone who is a liberal and a Democrat, but has gravitas and is knowledgeable – not just a staff aide or an Obama retread. Someone with deep thoughts,” Fleitz said. “There’s just no one like that in this administration.”
The direction US policy is heading is concerning, said Fleitz.
“I think China is the biggest threat. I’m worried that they’re going to get more aggressive when they sense weakness. And I think big, big concessions to Iran are coming to get the U.S. back in the nuclear deal.”

Experts Say United States Vulnerable to ‘Electromagnetic’ Attack by Chinese
When Joe Biden was trying to convince Americans to vote for him to become the next President back in 2019, he belittled the concept that China is a danger to the U.S. “Come on man, China’s not a threat” said Biden.
Experts, however, continue to show just how wrong Biden has always been. Fox News reports “experts are warning that the United States is vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack from adversaries such as China, and that time is running out to invest in defending the country from it.”
Last week during a virtual forum hosted by the Universal Peace Federation, Peter Vincent Pry, the executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, said “that poses a real threat of possibly being able to win a war with a single blow by means of an EMP attack.”
“Moreover…they don’t envision employing an EMP by itself. It would be used in conjunction with cyberattacks and physical sabotage, and non-nuclear EMP” added Pry. Experts also warn that while an EMP attack would be “bloodless” at first, a yearlong blackout could kill roughly 90% of the American population.
The U.S. electric grid and other infrastructure – such as communications and transportation systems and water and sewer services – could all be devastated by such an attack, experts like Pry warn, noting that time is of the essence for the U.S. to defend itself.
China already possesses “super EMPs” and last summer tested a new hypersonic glide vehicle that analysts warn could deploy the EMP and cause a long-lasting blackout that would shut down key infrastructure and cripple the military’s ability to communicate.
A Pentagon report on Chinese military capabilities details how China has invested heavily in its EMP program, with a strategy that “emphasizes suppressing, degrading, disrupting or deceiving enemy electronic equipment throughout the continuum of a conflict while protecting its ability to use the cyber and electromagnetic spectrum.”
“The PLA is likely to use electronic warfare early in a conflict as a signaling mechanism to warn and deter adversary offensive action. Potential EW targets include adversary systems operating in radio, radar, microwave, infrared and optical frequency ranges, as well as adversary computer and information systems” adds the report.
