As headlines about the frosty relationship between China and the United States are dominated by spy balloons, Taiwan and botched attempts at diplomacy, commanders in the Pentagon are increasingly worried by a more insidious threat: Beijing's growing stronghold on Latin America. From tens of billions of dollars in funding for key infrastructure projects across the region to its own secretive, military-run space station in Argentina that could target American satellites, China's presence has grown. Some 21 countries in Latin America are signed up to Beijing's Belt and Road Initiative - a defining policy introduced by President Xi Jinping in 2013

Not much news about that -- Didn't China obtain ports at both ends of the canal shortly after President Carter declared the Canal Zone to no longer be U.S. territory?

Biden is out still trying to round up mystical White Supremists who he claims are the most dangerous entity to the USA, While no doubt Biden has been propagandized to believe that the USA needs more Chinese Restaurants. Remember money talks!

It's not a "space station" if it's in Argentina. The Bidenistas did not want us to know about the weather balloon, what else are they attempting to hide? Odds are, we have Chinese people and equipment right here on American soil.

Joe Biden has ceded all US power and influence in the world in favor of equity, diversity, and inclusion. Unfortunately, that DEI also includes sharing world power and influence with dangerous countries " just to be fair ". While Biden is busy demeaning White people, promoting LGBTQ lifestyle, Transgender agenda, BLM, and other divisive race based priorities; he ignores China's rapidly growing influence all around the world as the US becomes a has been second rate nation.

We were able to travel through the Canal in 2013. The most amazing engineering... The only thing more memorable were the thousands of Chinese shipping containers, and the many, many Chinese men, wearing bright orange coveralls, clearly seen from the deck of our ship. Thanks to Jimmy Carter, that treasonous little weasel.

On Monday, Special Council John Durham’s long-awaited report into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation fell out of the blue. The report faults the FBI and says they should never have opened Crossfire Hurricane since it was entirely based on “leads provided or funded by Trump's political opponents.” Despite how Durham spelled out the fact that the Trump-Russia probe was based on “raw, unanalyzed and uncorroborated intelligence,” ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News stood behind it.

The FBI offered to pay Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous anti-Trump “dossier,” up to $1 million for evidence linking Donald Trump to Russia, and paid Steele’s primary subsource hundreds of thousands of dollars even after the source was unable to provide evidence for any of his claims, according to a report from Special Counsel John Durham. Embattled FBI agent Brian Auten travelled to Rome to meet with Steele on October 3, 2016, and made the offer despite knowing that his dossier relied primarily on one person, or “subsource.” The Bureau then paid that “subsource,” Igor Danchenko, $220,000

Their behavior during the Crossfire Hurricane investigation reads like a page out of the Nixon playbook,” Graham said in a statement.

(snip) The recommendations include several proposals meant to address "housing segregation" and "unjust property takings" that contributed to alleged systemic racism against Black Californians. Among the most controversial of the housing proposals is one that would seemingly hand over control of local land use decisions to a state agency that would approve ordinances based on whether they maintain or decrease segregation.

So that’s the big news after all these years—the Russia Hoax really was a hoax. As if anyone with an IQ above room temperature ever doubted it. Here’s Zerohedge’s summary of this not-so-stunning revelation: According to Just the News, the report concludes that the FBI had no verified intelligence or evidence when it opened up an investigation into Donald Trump and his campaign in the summer of 2016. Durham placed blame on the FBI and DOJ for failing to follow their own standards in a probe which should have never taken place - including the agency's surveillance of an American citizen without basis.
