This is a historical plot of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) values of the top seven nations. The US is number one (“We Are Number One”), with China in second place and coming up at a rapid rate. Which is really impressive for China, as they were near zero in 1980.
Chinese leadership is probably watching these numbers pretty closely, anticipating becoming the largest economy in the world. And surely doing what they can to hasten that moment.
So it would make complete economic and strategic sense for China to fund any US politician, political group, social movement, or non-profit organization that can have a negative effect on the US economy.
Which would explain a lot of what we’re witnessing today.
When you see something in the US that is a terrible decision with an incredibly bad outcome but especially something that is an economic negative, it’s entirely possible that the operation is getting funding from China. Open borders, Fentanyl, high crime rates, dying cities, Covid response, failing public schools, high-speed rail to nowhere, depleted Strategic Petroleum Reserve, degeneracy on TikTok, $100 billion to Ukraine, goofy green energy projects, you name it.
At least it deserves some research. Any politician, political group, social movement, or non-profit organization that receives funding from China should be suspect.
There is a precedent in other fields; this would be the economic equivalent of “throwing a fight” that we see in boxing.Published in
