FBI director says China aims to become "world's only superpower"

FBI director says China aims to become "world's only superpower"

"SNIP......

FBI Director Christopher Wray gave a speech today at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C. in which he laid out "more detail on the Chinese threat than the FBI has ever presented in an open forum."

Why it matters: China's increasingly aggressive behavior under General Secretary Xi Jinping is ringing alarm bells in the U.S.

Details: Wray described the multi-pronged efforts they have seen from China to take advantage of Americans and of U.S. innovation and technology, including the Equifax hack, theft of sensitive military technology, pressure to self-censor, and economic coercion applied to state and local-level U.S. elected officials.

"If you are an American adult, it is more likely than not that China has stolen your personal data. ... Our data isn’t the only thing at stake here — so are our health, our livelihoods, and our security," he said.

.......SNIP"

3. And Wray's boss is doing his best to help China achieve that.

Trump does it by diminishing US's importance and success.

7. Look, THOUSANDS of people aren't gonna survive 4 more WEEKS...

WE have lost over 130,000 people and are in the throes of an explosive rise in reported cases AND hospitalizations...that leads inexorably to a HUGE spike in additional DEAD Americans...

At this point, I question whether or not Putin is paying Trump directly for dead Americans - military OR civilian...

Our bloated military budget assures that we’re a super power

13. Maybe.

They can still project power all over the globe.

The fact that we spend what the next 8 countries do combined on our stupid military assures we alone are the global superpower.

I’d be perfectly happy cutting that budget by 80% and let China take the reigns of being global policeman.

17. There's no such thing as a superpower or global policeman.

Hasn't been since the bomb.

We humans can choose to live, or we can die.

The Earth doesn't care.

9. Trump gave up the mystique of American strength with his caravan

of cold hearted plutocrats running things. US might will come back once Biden wins and the experts are back assessing risk and implementing policy.

19. Both nations would like to see us drastically diminished. Neither one has stupid leaders.

Neither Xi nor Putin is anyone’s good buddy, and both take a long view.

But yes, our putative president is a Russian asset.

21. Well they kidnapped two canadians to try and get canada to flout the Huawei

sales to Iran extradition to the US case, about a Huawei executive who lied to congress. I blame them for two innocent men being in prison in China for more than 500 days.
