Tucker Carlson just burned down the Ivory Tower American elites like to hide behinf and exposed them all as the worst kind of shills.
He went after the real problem facing America and China – the greed of our elites and how that led to them to sellout this great country.
Whether it is sending jobs overseas or critical technology or giving Chines spies access to secret government-funded research, our leaders took the money from China and turned their backs on America. That is a fact.
“Instead of protecting us from this threat, an existential one, our leadership class collaborates with the other side. Why do they do that? Simple, they’re getting rich from it,” Tucker said.
“Maybe more than anyone in America, Bloomberg represents the beliefs and values of our current aristocracy. Which is by far the worst in American history. The stupidest, the most greedy.”
“China didn’t just one day magically overtake us. Our leaders made that possible. They abetted it, they profited from it, they betrayed us.”
A U.S. Republican lawmaker on Wednesday urged California to fire the chief investment officer of its public pension fund, the nation’s largest, citing what he called the CIO’s “long and cozy” relationship with Beijing, and assailed the fund’s investments in Chinese companies.
In a letter to California Governor Gavin Newsom, U.S. Representative Jim Banks of Indiana said Yu Ben Meng, the CIO of California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS), should at least be investigated.
“Governor Newsom, if it were up to me, I would fire Mr. Meng immediately,” Banks wrote in the letter.
“At the least, I think a thorough investigation of Mr. Meng’s relationship to the Chinese Communist Party and a comparison of CalPERS investments in Chinese companies before and after Mr. Meng’s 2008 hiring are both warranted,” he added.
A U.S. citizen born in China, Meng has twice worked for CalPERS, the first time starting in 2008 and the second time beginning in January 2019 when he became CIO managing $400 billion in investments, according to the CalPERS website.
In between the CalPERS stints, Meng worked for three years as deputy CIO with China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE), which oversees China’s U.S. Treasury security holdings, the website says.
Citing an online article in China’s People’s Daily, Banks asserted that China’s Thousand Talents Program recruited Meng for the job at SAFE. According to the FBI, TTP is a part of “China’s non-traditional espionage against the United States.”
Exactly @TuckerCarlson, they betrayed us.
