Donald Trump made it clear from the outset that the U.S. relationship with China wasn't going to be status quo: Beijing was put on notice that its current favorable trade arrangements were going to be reworked; Trump would not tolerate Beijing colonizing the South China Sea; our Pacific Rim allies were not going to be threatened; and any hacking China did would be met with a similar response.
But all of that changed January 20th.
That's the day Joe Biden was inaugurated as "president," along with all of his China baggage, most of it packed by his son, Hunter, who, along with partners, struck business deals with ChiCom banks and financial institutions, money of which was later shared with 'Pop,' if we're to believe evidence discovered on Hunter's abandoned laptop.
We know that China interfered in the 2020 election and they did so to keep Trump out. Former acting DNI John Ratcliffe said as much in a final report on the subject on his way out the door earlier this year.
“From my unique vantage point as the individual who consumes all of the U.S. government’s most sensitive intelligence on the People’s Republic of China, I do not believe the majority view expressed by Intelligence Community (IC) analysts fully and accurately reflects the scope of the Chinese government’s efforts to influence the 2020 U.S. federal elections,” Ratcliffe wrote in a summary, pushing back against politicized careerists.
“I’m adding my voice in support of the stated minority view — based on all available sources of intelligence, with definitions consistently applied, and reached independent of political considerations or undue pressure — that the People’s Republic of China sought to influence the 2020 U.S. federal elections,” he noted further.
And the hacking has continued in earnest since, including from Russia. Only now, because Beijing literally has no respect for a mind-addled 'president,' China has upped the stakes to the point where Biden has no choice but to respond.
"The US is expected to say Monday that the Chinese government has been the mastermind behind a series of malicious ransomware, data theft and other cyber-espionage attacks against public and private entities around the world, including the Microsoft Exchange hack uncovered earlier this year," Zero Hedge reported this week.
The Biden regime was expected to "present evidence showing how China’s Ministry of State Security uses criminal contract hackers to conduct unsanctioned cyber operations globally, including for its own personal profit," Zero Hedge continued.
"Additionally, the NSA, CISA and FBI will expose more than 50 tactics Chinese state-sponsored cyber hackers have used."
China responded as expected -- not just with vehement denials but with renewed threats of its own because President Xi Jinping believes he can push Sleepy Joe.
"The US even claimed that China has allowed contractor hackers to pursue their personal profit; in other words, China is willing to use its national interests to pay for the interests of those hackers and specific organizations they represent. We don't know whether the US and Western societies controlled by capital have such logic, but it is totally unthinkable in socialist China," noted an 'editorial' in China Times, which is nothing more than a propaganda outlet for Beijing.
"The US cannot exploit these smears to substantively attack China. If the US takes aggressive measures, carries out national-level cyber attacks on China, or imposes so-called sanctions on China, we will retaliate," the editorial continued.
What did the Biden regime say in response? That it reserves the right to respond with unilateral action.
The coming cyberwar between American and China will be swift, brutal and the after-effects of total system shutdowns will lead to the deaths of tens of millions.
