    President Biden’s incompetency as President is unavoidable.

    After the President permitted a Chinese spy balloon to traverse the country for the better part of a week it is important to remind Americans that last year Biden chose to cancel a program launched by the Trump administration to identify Chinese threats to national security.

    According to The Daily Wire, Matt Olsen, the Biden administration’s assistant attorney general in charge of the national security division, claimed that Asians had said the program was biased against them, saying, “We helped give rise to a harmful perception that the department applies a lower standard to investigate and prosecute criminal conduct related to that country or that we in some way view people with racial, ethnic, or family ties to China differently.”

    “Make no mistake. We will be relentless in defending our country from China,” he added.

    A few weeks before Biden ended Trump’s China Initiative, former FBI director Christopher Wray acknowledged that when he took his job in 2017 and examined the scope of Chinese theft of American technology, it “blew me away. And I’m not the kind of guy that uses words like ‘blown away’ easily.”

    “There is no country that presents a broader, more severe threat to our innovation, our ideas and our economic security than China does,” he added.

    “The scale of their hacking program, and the amount of personal and corporate data that their hackers have stolen, is greater than every other country combined,” Wray concluded.

    The China Initiative was implemented by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in 2018.

    “Today, we see Chinese espionage not just taking place against traditional targets like our defense and intelligence agencies, but against targets like research labs and universities, and we see Chinese propaganda disseminated on our campuses. … This Department of Justice—and the Trump administration—have already made our decision: we will not allow our sovereignty to be disrespected, our intellectual property to be stolen, or our people to be robbed of their hard-earned prosperity.  We want fair trade and good relationships based on honest dealing.  We will enforce our laws—and we will protect America’s national interests.”
