COMMITTEE ON THE PRESENT DANGER: CHINA ILLUMINATES OUTRAGEOUS PLANS FOR U.S. UNDERWRITING OF P.R.C. THREAT
FEDERAL EMPLOYEES, MILITARY PERSONNEL PENSIONS TO BE TAPPED
Washington, D.C.— The Committee on the Present Danger: China (CPDC) yesterday presented chilling evidence that U.S. capital markets have been – to paraphrase the quip attributed to Vladimir Lenin – giving the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) the money to pay for the rope with which they will hang us. In the course of the Committee’s eighth Threat Briefing, influential legislators, finance experts and national security practitioners joined forces to warn about the extraordinary dangers associated with this practice and to urge that an effort now underway to extend it to the retirement funds of U.S. government and military personnel, past and present, must be stopped immediately.
