Joe Biden has placed America in a dangerous international position.
And he’s doing nothing to fix the problem.
Ron DeSantis took America’s national security into his own hands with this step.
China’s communist government is evil and authoritarian who is ruthlessly working to become a global leader.
China suppresses democracy, enslaves minorities, oppresses Christians and Muslims, sells organs of its prisoners, is responsible for COVID-19 and is actively hostile towards America.
While former President Donald Trump took an active stand against China, currently President Joe Biden is brainlessly allowing China to have free rein.
There are key sectors where America is completely reliant on China.
The Food and Drug Administration estimates that at least 80 percent of the active ingredients found in all of America’s medicines come from abroad and primarily China.
America doesn’t have the ability to manufacture even basic drugs anymore.
The last U.S. plant manufacturing the penicillin antibiotic closed in 2004.
China is also looking to make the West technologically dependent on China.
That’s why it’s vitally important to invest in American manufacturing.
On Wednesday, Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis announced he would invest nearly $10 million in semiconductor production for the state of Florida to combat the United States’ reliance on China.
“We have to start standing up as Floridians and Americans,” DeSantis said at a press conference. “We cannot be captive. Key sectors of our economy should not be captive to some of these foreign nations, particularly outfits like the Communist Party of China. And then even when you have allies like Taiwan, how that could impact, if there was a disruption there, could throw a lot of this through the loop even more than we’ve seen over the past year and a half. So the more we have this capacity within our own country but particularly within our own state here in Florida, the more opportunities there’s going to be for people and the more secure both our economic supply chains will be and our national security.”
On December 20, DeSantis announced his plan to confront Communist China, stating in a press release he would “conduct a survey of all of the investments of the Florida Retirement System to determine how many assets the state has in Chinese companies.”
“If you look at how these major companies behave when faced with Chinese disapproval, they censor what the CCP tells them to censor and we see groveling apologies,” DeSantis fired. “Go back a generation, and the idea of the American elites was, ‘If we allow China into the WTO and give them most favored nation status, that will make China more like us.’ This experiment has failed and it has endangered our nation’s national and economic security.”
America needs more people like Ron DeSantis on every level who are willing to stand up to China while there’s still time.
