While President Joe Biden and the Democrats are celebrating the passage of the so-called Inflation Reduction act, Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) is arguing that the left is playing right into China’s hand.
Waltz made the argument on Monday during an appearance on the Fox News Channel’s The Faulkner Focus.
Waltz began by calling upon America “to wake up to what’s going on.”
“We are drunk as a country on Chinese money, from Hollywood to Wall Street to the sports industry, too – and, certainly in our politics,” Waltz said.
Waltz then suggested that this drunkenness has numbed us to the very real dangers posed by China. Waltz highlighted some of these dangers.
“It can be blockading shipping and commercial aircraft going into Taiwan,” Waltz said. “Tomorrow, it can be oil, into Japan. And then, the next move by Chairman Xi [Jinping] could be pharmaceuticals, into the United States.”
From here, Waltz turned his attention to the “Inflation Reduction Act,” which passed the U.S. Senate on Sunday and is now expected to make it through the U.S. House and to be signed into law by President Biden.
It’s a victory for China
There are lots of problems with the Inflation Reduction Act. Waltz highlighted one massive one.
“We just saw the Senate passed billions to go into green energy,” Waltz said. “Where’s all that going? It’s going into Chinese-made solar panels, Chinese-made wind turbines, Chinese-owned lithium.”
The Chinese theory of victory, as espoused by Sun Tzu, is to force your enemy to capitulate without ever firing a shot. What the Chinese are planning on is us bankrupting ourselves and then being able to choke off the critical supply chain to our economy before we ever talk about tanks, planes, and ships in the Taiwan Strait.
“And, this administration’s playing right into their hands,” Waltz added.
The congressman is spot on with his analysis here. Biden and the Democrats are leading America, headfirst, to domestic and international disaster. And, the worst part is that they don’t seem to mind. Rather, it all seems to be part of their plan.
