This is based on a comment I made earlier today at The Conservative Treehouse.
I’m beginning to form the opinion that China is behind the US push to confront Russia.
Our laws are drafted by lobbyist law firms on behalf of their clients and then presented to Congressmen and Senators for enactment. No Senator writes legislation. Hell, much of the time they may not even know who the client is.
Trade imbalances matter. For a generation, we have been sending fiat currency to China to pay for cheap consumer goods. That money can ultimately only be spent in the US, and boy are they spending it here. The Chinese have been buying up so much real estate on the west coast that the market is beyond the reach of middle class Americans. Check the price of a house– any house at all– in any west coast city and tell me who can afford one. Is it merely a coincidence that west coast cities are the US ports closest to China?
Why are California, Oregon and Washington– among other states– entering into agreements with China (in violation of Article 1, Section 10 of the US Constitution) to adhere to the Paris Climate Accords, which restrict US energy and industrial activity? From any standpoint or ideology, such agreements are against US interests. And yet they are being made.
Why are so many cities and towns in those states defying federal law and being “sanctuary cities”? Why has California and other slave states enacted the provisions of the UN Small Arms Treaty in defiance of the Second Amendment? Why did a super majority of both parties in Congress just vote to place tremendous economic sanctions against Russia, exactly? Again, viewed from the national interest, this is not something that should have passed Congress. And yet it did, with astonishing speed.
What US national interest, exactly, is advanced by NATO operating on former Soviet territory? I’m unable to identify one. Why is the US taking any position at all about the government and territory of Ukraine, which is as firmly in the Russian sphere of influence as Mexico is in ours?
China bonos, that’s who. China benefits immediately and directly from any conflict between Russia and the US, up to and including hot war.
China is thousands of years old and the Chinese play a long game, with rules (if any) very different from ours. We’re 241 years old and still wet behind the ears. We should be very wary about being drawn into ancient Asian rivalries. I believe that China (and Middle Eastern countries) are using their billions of US dollars to pay American lobbyists to draft legislation that favors their interests. Why wouldn’t they? Our government– federal, state, and local– is being hijacked by foreign interests. I’m not suggesting that individual lawmakers at any level are necessarily even aware of this. They’re just following their lobbyist’s orders.
We need major legal reform if we are to survive as a sovereign nation. Lobbying on behalf of any foreign entity should be defined as treason and made a capital offense.
We’re being prayed, bigry.
