While Democrats fight over how many trillions to waste on vanity projects that have little or nothing to do with the core functions of government, China is quietly winning an arms race.
In fact, it’s been reported that defense spending is about the only line item NOT getting a spending increase in the Democrat wish list. Factor in inflation, and that results in a functional year-over-year decrease in defense spending.
Meanwhile both the Russians and Chinese are getting ahead of us in hypersonic missile technology. Since that technology can effectively cripple a country before they’ve even begun the war, it’s a big deal that we were told earlier this year that the Chinese test shows we’re falling behind, and they have a technology that could make basically any target on the planet vulnerable so quickly that we would be unable to react.
The hypersonic glide vehicle, a manoeuvrable spacecraft which can carry a nuclear warhead, fired a separate missile during its flight in the atmosphere over the South China Sea on July 27, according to a Financial Times report.
Experts at the Pentagon’s advanced research agency Darpa are said to be unsure how China achieved the feat, as scientists say it “tests the constraints of physics”.
Military experts are said to have been poring over the data to discover how it was achieved.
They are also said to be discussing what the projectile might be for.
It was fired by the hypersonic vehicle but seems to have had no obvious target, before it plunged into the water.
…The test comes at a time when China is rapidly expanding its nuclear forces, indicating it is abandoning its “minimum deterrence” stance it has maintained for decades.– TheSun
What happened to all the hand-wringing about the dangers of Vladimir Putin? And with China having trampled Hong Kong’s democratic rights, and openly planning to annex Taiwan into the direct control of the CCP, shouldn’t we take note of the totalitarian tendencies of rival great powers, and stand ready to contain them if need be?
It’s a helluva time to have unanswered questions about whether the Biden family’s ONGOING financial dealings with China have put their private financial interests at odds with the national interests. Trump was impeached (twice!) on flimsier allegations and has had to battle untold malicious legal actions.
Check out Doug’s latest book, The Art of Joe: The Political Brilliance of President Biden. If you have left-leaning family members, workmates, or classmates, to buy several copies and place them in common areas. Make sure you have your video camera ready for when they pick it up and thumb through it because they will be triggered which will make for a great viral video to share across social media. Also, buy a couple for the GOP NeverTrumpers that you know. Finally, both the book’s cover and the epilogue, Notable Quotable Joe are worth the price of admission. We’ve included before and after Biden on Afghanistan. Jen Psaki will no likey this book, but you will. BTW, the book is 95% bereft of any content. Just like Biden’s head.
