"Now, I think it's obvious: the only serious threat to America... is Americans."

Yes, the "Americans" (America companies) who have sold out to the Chinese.


Oh, and let's not forget China's military built-up.

From the 1 Sep 2020 Military.com article "China's Military Has Surpassed US in Ships, Missiles and Air Defense, DoD Report Finds" (link below):

"China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) has already surpassed the U.S. in missile development and its number of warships and air defense systems under the Chinese Communist Party's plan to achieve dominance by 2049, the Defense Department said in a sobering report Tuesday.

The ultimate goal of the People's Republic of China, or PRC, is to "develop a military by mid-Century that is equal to -- or in some cases superior to -- the U.S. military, or that of any other great power that the PRC views as a threat," the DoD's annual report to Congress said."


And then there is China's effort to indoctrinate American college students.

"Last year, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte made an announcement to great fanfare: The university would soon open a branch of the Confucius Institute, the Chinese government-funded educational institutions that teach Chinese language, culture and history. The Confucius Institute would "help students be better equipped to succeed in an increasingly globalized world," says Nancy Gutierrez, UNC Charlotte's dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and "broaden the University's outreach and support for language instruction and cultural opportunities in the Charlotte community," according to a press release.

But the Confucius Institutes' goals are a little less wholesome and edifying than they sound-and this is by the Chinese government's own account. A 2011 speech by a standing member of the Politburo in Beijing laid out the case: "The Confucius Institute is an appealing brand for expanding our culture abroad," Li Changchun said. "It has made an important contribution toward improving our soft power. The 'Confucius' brand has a natural attractiveness. Using the excuse of teaching Chinese language, everything looks reasonable and logical."

Li, it now seems, was right to exult. More than a decade after they were created, Confucius Institutes have sprouted up at more than 500 college campuses worldwide, with more than 100 of them in the United States-including at The George Washington University, the University of Michigan and the University of Iowa. Overseen by a branch of the Chinese Ministry of Education known colloquially as Hanban, the institutes are part of a broader propaganda initiative that the Chinese government is pumping an estimated $10 billion into annually, and they have only been bolstered by growing interest in China among American college students."
(from the Politico article "How China Infiltrated U.S. Classrooms
Even as they face criticism, Chinese government-run educational institutes have continued their forward march on college campuses across the United States." https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/01/16/how-china-infiltrated-us-classrooms-216327/

And, of course, China's actions and intensions are always benign. LOL
