The bottom line is that the Chinese are buying off our politicians. Enriching them and their families in exchange for military and economic concessions for China.The bought politicians are at the highest level.
I never fail to ask why it was that of all the nations in the world we could have transferred tens of thousands of our factories to we chose a totalitarian communist state with a native language that is one of the hardest to learn on the planet? India has a literate, English-speaking population. Nor had it had occasion to cause the death of some 80,000,000 of its citizens in part in some insane economic fantasy and in the course of a vicious, pointless, insane, internal political spasm.
But, assuming some kind of need to gut our industrial bases, we did not choose to favor India, a functioning democracy.
Noooo our factories ended up in @#$% China who we knew were manipulating the value of their currency to further stick it to the stupid Americans.
The U.S. government sat there like a rag doll or stood there like Mr. Magoo and did nothing to repair our disastrous tax, trade, and immigration policies as the trade imbalance sluiced money into the hands of a strategic competitor, if not an enemy. What our sellout elites did was to turn China into a world military power and an ambitious international resource-grabbing behemoth. While the U.S. has been pouring trillions into the desert wastes of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Yemen, the Chinese have been locking in deal after deal for resources around the world. Yet another aspect of Chinese reality that is simply invisible to our so-called "leaders." From such genius may the good Lord deliver us.
Now we know why the China initiative took place in the first place and why our elitist did nothing to protect American interests. They were bought. They sold us out.
As I also like to say (hat tip Sherlock Holmes), once you eliminate the impossible, what you have left is the truth, no matter how improbable. Thus, once you eliminate the impossibility that U.S. elites give a tinker’s dam about the national interests of the United States and its people, then your are left with the understanding that they are nothing less than traitors, that they hate the country and its people, and will do anything for money even if it means enriching an enemy.
