As we have mentioned before, China is very proud of their military growth and they already think of themselves as America’s equal. Are we ready to take their threats seriously?
It should surprise nobody that China has some very big ambitions. They want to dominate the planet and think their ancient culture has far more right to do so than some little upstart that hasn’t even seen its 250th birthday.
They literally have dishes older than we are.
And they are cranking out ships in their navy like nobody’s business.
China commissioned 60,000 tons worth of major vessels earlier this month, officially putting into service a new nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine, a guided-missile cruiser and an amphibious helicopter carrier on the 72nd anniversary of its Navy.
The unprecedented triple commissioning was carried out in a ceremony held at the Yulin naval complex near the city of Sanya on the southern Chinese island of Hainan. Yulin is the main naval base of the South Sea Fleet of the People’s Liberation Army Navy. The fleet’s area of responsibility lies in the waters of the nearby South China Sea.
Chinese President Xi Jinping attended the ceremony, which saw the Type 075 (Yushen-class) amphibious helicopter carrier Hainan, the Type 055 (Renhai-class) guided-missile cruiser Dalian and the Type 094 (Jin-class) nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine Changzheng-18 join the PLAN. —DefenseNews
Xi is ramping up China’s navy because he believes they are likely to use it.
What about America? At present, we can barely keep ours afloat.
After decades of government neglect, American shipyards barely can build and repair the ships the U.S. fleet already has, to say nothing of the additional ships it would need—quickly—to keep fighting a determined, high-tech foe with major industrial resources of its own. —Forbes
We went a little deeper into this topic here:
With China bragging they launch as many new ships in a given year as France has in its entire navy, we might want to consider what we should do about it.
All the more reason we might be concerned about someone behind the Resolute Desk who has deep family financial ties to the CCP.
To what degree are the personal financial interests of Joe (the man) and America, (the country for which he is the executive head) align or conflict?
Where’s Teddy Roosevelt’s speak softy and carry a big stick thinking when we could really use it?

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
