Jim and Greg investigate a recent report of a high-level Chinese defector who allegedly has “damaging information” on many American intelligence and government officials. They also remark on Senator Whitehouse’s continued membership in an all-white beach club in Rhode Island. Lastly, they lament that Democrats are calling a tragic car accident at a gay parade in Florida a “terrorist attack.”

    DeSantis is a little young, but he has one huge advantage: politically, he was been born in fire. It would appear that conservative politicians become useless to their constituents the second they attract any heat.

    I wonder if the defector wishes he had done so before President Xiden.

    Apparently this defector has the advantage of knowing who the Chinese assets or “friends” are in the Biden Administration, so he could avoid them.

    The Chinese government may yet trump up a child custody dispute (like the Elian Gonzalez case) or even accuse the defector of child molestation.

    On the other hand, the defector may be able to retaliate with information on actual crimes committed by influential people in China, if they try too hard to get him back.

    That was my point, really.  If Xiden and others at/near the top are compromised, this guy picked a bad time to go through with it.

    I wonder if his original plan might have been to make the switch during Trump’s second term, and then he wound up pushed to do it anyway because the CCP was catching on to him.
