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.”

Fred Fleitz thinks Biden should replace the nation’s top diplomat after Blinken’s pathetic show in Alaska.

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.”

Republican Senators Introduce ‘Securing America’s Land from Foreign Interference Act’ to Protect Farmland from Chinese

Republican Senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, introduced a bill to protect the United States from China. Last week Sara Carter joined Fox News’ Sean Hannity to discuss the terrifying reality that China is buying a large amount of America’s farmland. Frankly, any amount is too much, but China has managed to purchase roughly 200,000 acres across the United States.

300 of those acres are near an Air Force Base which boards “some of the nation’s most sensitive drone technology.” On Tuesday, the two Republican senators introduced a bill with the aim of preventing members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from purchasing any land in the United States.

The Blaze reports:

A similar bill (H.R.7892) was introduced into Congress on May 27, 2022, by Rep. Dan Newhouse, entitled Prohibition of Agricultural Land for the People’s Republic of China Act.

Cotton’s and Tuberville’s bill is, in part, a response to a report issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 2020 indicating that “foreign persons held an interest in nearly 37.6 million acres of U.S. agricultural land.” They note in their announcement that “approximately 14 states have some level of foreign ownership restriction yet there are no federal restrictions on the amount of private U.S. agricultural land that can be owned.”

Chinese entities have acquired immense swaths of American soil and are poised to continue doing so. “Millions of acres in U.S. farmland are expected to change hands in the next decade.”

Whereas in 2010, China had invested in 13,720 acres of U.S. land, “by the end of 2020, the number had risen to 194,179 acres,” leaving China with a total of 352,140 acres of American land.

“Chinese investments in American farmland put our food security at risk,” said Cotton. Furthermore, these investments “provide opportunities for Chinese espionage against our military bases and critical infrastructure.”

Chinese entities have not just purchased farmland, but “bought $6.1 billion in U.S. real estate in 2022, according to the National Association of Realtors, and constituted 6% of foreign buyers.”

“We cannot continue giving our top adversary a foot in the door to purchase land in the United States and undermine our national security” added senator Tuberville.
