Two months ago Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declared the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as the greatest threat to the United States and now President Joe Biden has announced that he will create a new task force on China.
This group will work out of the Pentagon, Biden announced during his visit to the Pentagon on Feb. 10, and will be headed by Ely Ratner, senior adviser to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, according to Axios.
The Pentagon itself warned at the end of September, “The PLA’s (People’s Liberation Army) goal is to become a ‘world-class army’ by the end of 2049,” in a report to Congress, which is why the China task force imposed sanctions on it to control its expansion.
Secretary of Defense Dr. Mark T. Esper stressed that the PLA’s role is not to defend a nation or a constitution but to defend the CCP.
“Unlike America’s Armed Forces, the PLA is not a military that serves its nation or a Constitution,” tweeted Esper, last month.
He added, “Instead, it serves the Chinese Communist Party in its attempts to undermine rules and norms across the globe. Learn more in the DOD’s latest report.”
Biden continues to create controversy because several of his senior officials have had strong ties to the CCP, implying that he supports the communist regime.
Such is the case of top adviser Kurt Campbell, who chaired a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda group until August.
Campbell is now the chief Asia policy coordinator at the National Security Council (NSC), and helped create the U.S.-China Strong Foundation, a think tank that supported the CCP’s political and economic programs, according to The Washington Free Beacon on Jan. 27.
A similar case is that of Biden’s handpicked U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Linda Thomas-Greenfield, who advertised for the CCP, at one of Africa’s Confucius Institutes in 2019.
Thomas-Greenfield was hired by the Albright Stonebridge Group, a lobbying firm with deep ties to the CCP, The National Pulse reported on Jan. 27.
In fact, the Confucius Institutes themselves are funded by the CCP, which uses them for propaganda and cultural and political influence in the countries where they are located, in addition to allegedly stealing intellectual property.
Worse, on Jan. 16, the Biden administration rescinded, without notifying the press, a proposal made by former President Donald Trump to monitor the activity of the Confucius Institutes.
This controversial action by Biden will allow the CCP to continue to indoctrinate American students and present a positive image of its regime, even as it persecutes, tortures, and kills its own citizens behind closed doors.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) reacted to the news on his Twitter account, “It has been a year since the Chinese Communist Party let a pandemic spread around the world,” McCarthy recalled in a tweet.
He added: “Instead of holding them accountable for hiding the truth, the Biden Admin is rewarding China by allowing their propaganda to infiltrate our college campuses.”

Also, one Twitter user pointed out that Biden should have been congratulated by CCP leader Xi Jinping for his collaboration.
“Tiktok, Confucius Institute ….. ‘Great Job, Joe!’ said by Xi,” Twitter user @LszKelvin wrote on Feb. 11.
