Author Peter Schweizer says ‘China already is waging war with the US’

Is China getting ready for war?

According to Foreign Policy Magazine, “notwithstanding the recent flurry of high-level diplomacy between Washington and Beijing, the warning signs are certainly there. Under Chinese President Xi Jinping, Beijing is amassing ships, planes and missiles as part of the largest military buildup by any country in decades.”

According to political consultant Peter Schweizer, “China already is waging war with the US, but not with guns — with poison.” Schweizer is senior editor-at-large at Breitbart News and a prolific author who’s latest book, “Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans,” was a New York Times Bestseller from day one.

In a recent interview with Rebecca Weber, CEO of the Association of Mature American Citizens, on AMAC’s Better for America podcast, he warned that China is already engaged in a not-so-open war with the U.S.

For example, Schweizer said that while the Mexican drug cartels get all the blame for the massive numbers of fentanyl deaths in the U.S. the real cause is cartels’ senior partner, China. It is estimated that more than 1,500 Americans per week die from fentanyl and other opioids provided by China.

“China has carried out policies that are designed to maximize the casualties that we suffer in America,” he said. “If you look at fentanyl, for example, people assume this is the Mexican drug cartels. They’re basically the culprits here, and certainly they bear some of the blame, but they’re really the junior partners.  The senior partner is the Chinese Communist Party. The fentanyl precursors come from China. They arrive in Mexico at the port of Manzanillo. The international terminal there is controlled by a Chinese company that’s close to the Chinese state. Those precursors go up to the border where 2,000 Chinese nationals happen to be helping the drug cartels create the fentanyl. The pill presses and the pill molds that they need to produce these products are smuggled across the border. Those things come from China and China sells them at cost to the drug cartels. They’re not trying to make money. The drug cartels communication networks are all run through China. They’re secure that way because they know China will not share those communications with U.S. law enforcement and even the money laundering when they sell this poison, the money laundering is now done through Chinese state-owned banks. So, this is a China operation and the Mexican drug cartels are the junior partners and fentanyl poisonings are now the leading cause of death in America for people under the age of 45 — more than car accidents.”

And then there is the Communist Chinese social media platform TikTok, a means of taking over the minds of our kids. It’s targeted at American children 18 years old and younger and it “feeds every child a different feed so the parent doesn’t really even know what they’re exposed to,” he said. “And, as I quote extensively in my book, they view America’s children and TikTok as a way to get to those children. They are working to manipulate the values of young people in America. So, it is a massive major concern in some classrooms, certainly on TikTok, even when it comes to entertainment, a lot of the big Hollywood studios have struck joint finance deals with Chinese companies, which means that China now has essentially the ability to look at film scripts and modify and change them to conform more to CCP values. This happened most dramatically with the Kung Fu Panda animated series. The first two films stressed individual values and self-improvement. Kung Fu Panda 3 was financed in part by Chinese interests. They were able to influence the script. Kung Fu Panda 3 is an entirely different type of movie in the values and the viewpoints that it presents.”

Schweizer said the statistics are shocking, but he’s encouraged by a bill that passed through the House recently with widespread bipartisan support that would force the sale of TikTok to an American owned company.

“It’s not perfect, but I think it’s a good bill and I’m very encouraged that it passed on a bipartisan basis,” he said. “Joe Biden has hinted that he would sign that bill, although I would say the proof is in the pudding.  I think a lot of efforts are being made to stop that bill from even being voted on in the Senate because Joe Biden doesn’t want to have to make a decision. So. there are things that are happening that are encouraging to me.  We’re seeing some bipartisan effort.  But it’s certainly not because of the efforts of the Biden administration.”
