The United States and China are on the brink of war, said billionaire Ray Dalio. Dalio returned from China recently and his experience there was unlike what he had encountered on past trips into the region. He warned “the scale of the threat” that the Communist Chinese Party poses to global and American national security is at an apex.
Dalio published an article on the social media site Linked-In regarding the “great power conflict. ” He said what’s going on with China is unlike anything he has witnessed in the past and his last two recent visits to Beijing strengthened those fears.
“The United States and China are on the brink of war and are beyond the ability to talk,” Dalio wrote. “I want to emphasize that by saying that they are on the brink, I don’t mean to say that they will necessarily go over the brink. I mean to say that they are very close to crossing red lines that, if crossed, will irrevocably push them over the brink into some type of war that damages these two countries and causes damage to the world order in severe and irrevocable ways—like Russia’s invasion of Ukraine did for Russia and the world, just much bigger.”
Dalio isn’t the only one warning of a possible impending war between the United States and the Chinese nuclear power but policy analysts, including prominent China expert and author Gordan Chang are also issuing dire warnings.
Chang told me on a recent The Sara Carter Show podcast that China is determined to be globally dominant and is pursuing both economic and warlike actions against the United States and its assets globally to effort that reality. Part of making Beijing’s plans a reality is the formation of new stronger alliances with adversaries of the United States, Chang said.
Chang emphasized that not even past historical conflicts can compare to what the Chinese Communist Party is doing today.
“You know, a lot of people will say, Oh, how about 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis, or 1961, the Checkpoint Charlie crisis in Berlin,” he said. “What we now know from the Soviet archives is that Khrushchev was not willing to use his nuclear weapons. And we course know that Kennedy didn’t want to, but right now, we don’t know what Vladimir Putin or Xi Jinping will do. And both are making threats, unprovoked threats to use their most destructive weapons.”
Chang noted that this is a critical moment, adding that the perfect storm is being aided by feckless and dangerous leadership in Washington D.C.
“We have a Biden administration, which misunderstands Chinese policy, it’s a fundamental misunderstanding, because China doesn’t call us a competitor, as (President Joe) Biden does, doesn’t even use the word adversary uses the word enemy,” he said. “They declared a people’s war on the United States in May 2019. They are despite official denials conducting a campaign of unrestricted warfare against the US. Americans are dying as a result COVID…And so we are not protecting ourselves. The administration doesn’t understand the challenge. And it’s not taking the measures that are necessary to save the United States.”
According to Fox News “Dalio founded the world’s largest hedge fund firm which manages $124 billion, according to Forbes. The billionaire has been criticized for his financial exposure to the Chinese government. In 2021, Dalio equated human rights abuses in China to racism in America, and rhetorically asked whether or not he should still be investing in the United States.”

Border Patrol Council President concerned over ‘influx’ of military-aged Chinese men crossing the southern border
According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol data Border Patrol agents detained over 30,000 Chinese individuals for illegally crossing the border from January to November 2023, sparking concern.
Just The News reports that National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd on Wednesday said the United States should be incredibly concerned by the influx of military-aged Chinese men coming across the southern border.
“Why are we seeing this influx?” Judd asked on the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “At best, they’re just coming here for a better life or for a better job. At worse, they’re coming here to be part of the Chinese government, and that’s what scares me an awful lot.”
“We know that the Chinese have huge gangs here in the United States, and they control certain parts of our country,” he later said. “They control the drug flow. They control the prostitution. They control everything that’s illegal in certain portions of the country. We have to look into that. It’s very important that we understand why we are having so many people from China, especially military-aged men, from China.”
“I don’t want to cause mass hysteria where United States citizens are violent towards people from China,” Judd said. “However, we have to … allow the intelligence community to do their job. We’ve got to let law enforcement do their job and look into these individuals.”
Many Chinese immigrants are leaving due to economic conditions in China and its strict lockdowns, Yahoo News reported.
“Again, at best, they’re here for a better life,” Judd said. “At worst, they’re here to be part of the Chinese government to infiltrate our own country.”
