Strategic Analyst Warns China Is ‘Literally Buying Up’ U.S. Officials

China’s “extremely effective” influence operation campaign has “literally changed the direction of American foreign policy” in part by “buying up” former U.S. officials, strategic affairs analyst Bill Gertz warned on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“China’s information and influence operations have been extremely effective. They are literally buying up former officials,” said Gertz, a veteran defense and intelligence beats journalist who is now senior editor for the Washington Free Beacon.

“They are utilizing coercive measures to get U.S. businessmen who have interests in China to do their bidding, and very little is being done about it,” Gertz (pictured above) told Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

“I mean, we hear a lot about Russian influence operations. What China has been doing over the last 30 years is huge compared to what the Russians have done in terms of influencing the U.S. government,” Gertz added. “They have literally changed the direction of American foreign policy towards China.”

Gertz, whose 2000 book, “The China Threat: How the People’s Republic Targets America,” sounded some early warnings on the issue, lamented that both Republican and Democratic administrations succumbed to the “big propaganda theme” that “China is not a threat.”

Fortunately, Trump has directly confronted and rejected that theme, he said.

Those nations and organizations that purport to believe in "The Collective" (including U.S. "progressives") have long been playing the long game. Anyone that cherishes individual liberty had better take notice. If the democrats (now hostages of the "progressives") take back the government in this next election, they'll be stripping our liberties as hard as they can go.

Why do you think the Democrats were deceived?
What is evidence exists of the “deception”.?

The Democrat Party of the US is the Communist Party of the world. Wake up. The enemy has been inside the gates for a long long time.
