US intelligence agencies put China at the top of an annual assessment of supposed threats to national security. The report follows the narrative being spread by Biden administration officials: that China seeks to replace the US as the dominant global power.
The Annual Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Community, published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Tuesday, opens with a section on Beijing titled “China’s Push For Global Power.” The report claims that the Chinese government “will continue its whole-of-government efforts to spread China’s influence, undercut that of the United States, drive wedges between Washington and its allies and partners, and foster new international norms that favor the authoritarian Chinese system.”
The alarmist assessment rattles off the list of typical talking points coming out of Washington concerning China. It cites Beijing’s growing military capabilities, activity in the South China Sea and around Taiwan, and its increased cooperation with Moscow as the reasons to believe China is a threat.
The assessment is the first of the Biden administration and the first from Director of Intelligence Avril Haines and shows that the new administration shares the same views as the previous one. In December, Trump’s DNI John Ratcliffe penned an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal titled “China Is National Security Threat No. 1.” In the article, Ratcliffe declared: “Beijing intends to dominate the US and the rest of the planet economically, militarily and technologically.”
Haines and other US intelligence leaders will participate in hearings on Wednesday and Thursday with the House and Senate intelligence committees on global “threats.” China will likely be the hot topic of the hearings since it is a subject Republican hawks like to grill Biden officials on.
Other federal agencies under President Biden have also made it clear that they perceive China as the top threat, and the hype around Beijing is useful to justify bloated budgets. Biden has requested $753 billion for military spending for the 2022 fiscal year, which would be the highest US military budget of all time. In a release on the requested $715 for the Pentagon, the Defense Department cited China as the top “threat” that the money will be used to confront.

China is the top threat to US national security? Not themselves, nor Israel or Ukrainian Nazis? Strange, that, how defending themselves becomes the threat.
Q: What’s wrong with this annual assessment?
A: It confuses direct national security threats, of which there are none, with China’s expansive economic interests which should be of zero interest to the Pentagon.
So first we get this:
“This assessment focuses on the most direct, serious threats to the United States during the next year.”
And then we get this:
“CHINA’S PUSH FOR GLOBAL POWER
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will continue its whole-of-government efforts to spread China’s influence, undercut that of the United States, drive wedges between Washington and its allies and partners, and foster new international norms that favor the authoritarian Chinese system.” . .here
Currently there are over 52 China-Europe freight train routes reaching 13 European countries. . . Is the US planning to attack these trains because they are serious threats to the US?
US intelligence? LOL….the DHS, CIA and FBI are more of a threat than China. American politicians are more of a threat…and without a doubt,
the MSM should be up their on the top of the list. Without the MSM as their get away car…none of their agendas and false flags could succeed.
Debt is a bigger threat to our nation.
Congress is also a threat to our security…
seeing how many star in their very own

Bigger threat than China or Russia?
“When we get ready to take the United States,
we will not take it under the label of communism;
we will not take it under the label of socialism.
These labels are unpleasant to the American people,
and have been speared too much. We will take the
United States under labels we have made very lovable;
we will take it under liberalism, under progressivism,
under democracy. But, take it, we will.”

The greatest threat to America are dual citizens in gov and
our greatest ally in the ME… and let’s not forget the Federal Reserve.
Plus…the videos/black book of
Billary and their Child trafficking foundation.
Last but not least…our education system that has corrupted our youth with their Marxist, critical theory BS…“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where
men were free.”—-President Ronald Reagan
One of the biggest threats to our security? is false history…which
is what they have been teaching us since the end of WW2.
Everything we are taught in academia is a lie.
The reason we’re in mess today, is because we fought on the
wrong side of both world wars…allowing communism to infect
the entire planet .
Washington takes an interest in Mongolia.
