A Chinese Fifth Column in the United States?
By Scott Powell
When the winds of war are blowing as they are now, it is essential to recognize new developments and extraordinary activities by the enemy.
Since Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, 2021, most Americans have been dumbfounded by his open border policy and its administration by DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who has continued to gaslight Americans with the claim right up to the present that, “the southern border is secure.” In fact, the records show anything but a secure border. In just 28 months since Biden’s inauguration, over 6 million illegal aliens have entered the United States—including criminals, terrorists, and human, child, sex and lethal drug trafficking cartels—all of whom put enormous burden on American schools, health care facilities and law enforcement.
And now that Biden has allowed Title 42 to expire, with record numbers of immigrants having gathered at the southern border to enter the U.S., many now recognize that this chaos may be intentional Biden administration policy.
Some have observed the parallels between the Biden administration’s priorities and the Cloward-Piven neo-Marxist theory that was conceived and developed at Columbia by left-wing political activist sociology professors—the husband-and-wife team of Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. That theory became an eight-step plan designed to overload the U.S. public welfare system to bring about a crisis. That plan, now updated with a mass replacement migration component, could be called Cloward-Piven 2.0, and it has even greater potential to bring the United States into collapse, chaos, and bankruptcy by expanding lawlessness in addition to exploding the rolls of poor immigrants who become dependent on a variety of social welfare programs—including food stamps, health care and more.
The strategy is quite simple—call it “fundamental transformation,” which is to radically increase the costs and national debt from an enlarged social welfare and law enforcement infrastructure driven by the surge of millions of poor new immigrants—many from various failed states. Since these immigrant arrivals include criminals such as cartel members involved in human, sex and drug trafficking and others carrying infectious diseases, there are obviously large law enforcement costs in addition to the increased health and welfare expenditures. Unchecked, the overall cost becomes so great that it can bring down the targeted host country—even a rich country like the United States.
But it gets worse.
There are new developments at the southern border that reflect the Biden national security team being not only weak, but also compromised and controlled like Joe Biden, who has received tens of millions of dollars through Biden family shell companies and a labyrinth of LLCs from various Chinese entities tied to the Communist Party of China (CCP).
U.S. border authorities have recently reported a 900% increase in Chinese males coming across the border in the last year, at a time when multiple threat indicators are rising, such as intense military overflights of Taiwanese airspace and war games around the island country.
The entry of Chinese in the mix of people seeking entry to the U.S. is a new red flag for it is very difficult for Chinese to get authorization to leave China. It’s almost certain that the CCP has allowed and arranged for select Chinese to travel to Central America and Mexico with plans and maps for them to make their way up to and get over the southern border. And the purpose could be to establish a Chinese “Fifth Column” presence in the United States.
The CCP and its military have already been infiltrating Taiwan to act as “Fifth Column” units to undertake cyberattacks and place false information on social media and to undermine Taiwan’s state telecommunications infrastructure. Whether or not the PRC invades Taiwan, it appears that the CCP and PRC will continue to attempt to create chaos in Taiwan through a range of protracted operations that may include targeted military strikes and continuous unrestricted warfare operations. The goal is to wear down and demoralize the Taiwanese with an end game of compelling the Taiwanese government to accede to PRC demands, similar to what happened with the PRC takeover of Hong Kong.
So, the unprecedented surge of male Chinese immigrants at the southern border is another wakeup call that the CCP/PRC move on Taiwan may happen sooner than anticipated.
