(TeaParty.org) – One of the greatest threats to our national security, contrary to the radical left who keeps trying to tell us that its climate change, is actually China, and what was recently discovered during an investigation that dates back to 2017, proves that to be true without a doubt.
According to The Western Journal, an FBI investigation that started five years ago has uncovered a number of details revealing a Chinese Communist plot through the Huawei company and several others, to undermine the national security of the United States.
“The probe and subsequent actions also show the staggering level of complacency that nearly allowed this vulnerability to go unnoticed — and still allows it to perpetuate,” the report said.
“This gets into some of the most sensitive things we do,” an FBI official with knowledge of the matter went on to say during a conversation with reporters.
“In an exposé the likes of which the mainstream media hasn’t produced since the Wikileaks scandal, CNN’s Katie Bo Lillis revealed that the CCP, through various actors including Huawei, ZTE and Wendi Deng Murdoch, a prominent Chinese-American businesswoman, has undertaken alarming projects near or adjacent to sensitive U.S. military installations that could ‘impact our ability for essentially command and control with the nuclear triad,’ according to the CNN source within the Department of Justice,” the Western Journal report revealed.
“That goes into the ‘BFD’ [Big F****** Deal] category,” the source said.
“If it is possible for that to be disrupted, then that is a very bad day,” this individual went on to add.

When this all started, back in 2017, China was preparing to invest $100 million into a very large and complex Chinese garden to add to the National Arboretum located in our nation’s capital.
This might seem like a cool cultural addition to the Capitol, kind of like when the people of Japan, in 1912, donated cherry trees to the United States. However, this is the kind of gift that absolutely needs to be thoroughly examined.
According to a report from CNN, this installation would be “complete with temples, pavilions and a 70-foot white pagoda.”
Anyone else find the idea of what essentially amounts to pagan temples from other countries being built on our soil a bit creepy? There’s just something a bit unsettling about that.
“[T]he project thrilled local officials, who hoped it would attract thousands of tourists every year,” the report said.
However, there were a number of red flags that popped up concerning the project.
“The 70-foot-tall pagoda would be situated on one of the highest points in Washington, D.C., providing an incredible platform for signal interception and birds-eye view of military and/or law enforcement movements throughout much of the Capitol,” the Western Journal reported.
The site is just two miles away from the Capitol building, the White House, and the Washington Naval Yard, and just a few more away from the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, where the USAF 11th Wing is located.
“In what CNN described as an ‘alarming’ development: Chinese officials reportedly sought to construct the pagoda from materials that were shipped to the U.S. in diplomatic pouches, which cannot be searched by U.S. Customs officials due to diplomatic immunity,” the report said.
The garden has now been canceled.
The Western Journal then said, “Next, we jump across the nation to the rolling plains of the rural Midwest, particularly where the United States Strategic Air Command houses the land-based leg of the nuclear weapons triad in the form of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles and Strategic Bomber Forces. Intelligence concerns regarding the potential susceptibility of infrastructure developed by Chinese firms Huawei and ZTE are well known now in 2022; however, CNN’s unnamed FBI source revealed that such equipment was already deployed within cell towers located near several U.S. military installations, dating back to the days of the Obama administration.”
And, apparently, according to a report from CNN, this is not a small or limited assessment.
“It was described to CNN by more than a dozen sources, including current and former national security officials, all of whom spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly,” the news network reported.
What’s even more worrisome is that one of the biggest rural telecommunications providers located in the Colorado-Montana area, with a territory that goes all the way into Nebraska and along I-25, has now mounted live streaming traffic and weather cameras on towers that are adjacent to sensitive military installations, which basically allows anyone who has an Internet connection to be able to monitor these areas in real time.
After this investigation by the feds was revealed in 2019, the FCC serving in the Trump administration immediately took action, ordering that telecommunications firms who are recipients of federal subsidies to provide cell phone service in remote areas must “rip and replace” the highly problematic Huawei and ZTE equipment, according to a report from CNN.
President Trump signed an executive order that May, “allowing the Commerce Department to stop U.S. companies from doing business with companies ‘subject to the jurisdiction’ of a foreign adversary, clearing a path to bar transactions with Huawei, the Chinese telecom giant that officials have labeled a national security threat,” a report from Roll Call said.
Congressional appropriations for the project ended up falling short by a significant amount, more than half at $1.9 billion, which is not exactly pocket change. Because of this, the telecom firms have, for the most part, left the equipment right where it is.
In fact, it’s there today, still in operation.
“The Chinese government has vehemently denied any efforts to spy on the United States. However, sources familiar with the technology employed at these cell towers have stated that there is absolutely no question at all that these devices can be configured to intercept or disrupt radio traffic that is outside of their stated purpose, such as military and other restricted transmissions. It is merely a question as to whether or not they have. These systems, by their very presence, provide an opportunity for a sophisticated spy operation to be undertaken and present a strategic vulnerability,” the report stated.
FBI Director Christopher Wray spoke with CNN and said that the FBI is now working on opening new counterintelligence investigations into China at a rate of one every 12 hours. Let that sink in for a minute.
“That’s probably about 2,000 or so investigations,” Wray remarked. “And that’s not even talking about their cyber theft, where they have a bigger hacking program than that of every other major nation combined, and have stolen more of Americans’ personal and corporate data than every nation combined.”
This is insane.
So, the next time that a liberal tells you the biggest threat to our national security is climate change, be sure to bring up this piece of information in order to shut them down.
