The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is becoming weary of Chinese espionage in the United States and recently killed a $100 million project to build a National China Garden in Washington, DC.
The Daily Mail reports that the United States’ intelligence community is concerned that China is spying on the US through their vast increase in property investments. A deal struck in 2017 between China and local officials in Washington, D.C. to build a Chinese garden in the National Arboretum near the Nation’s Capitol, which would transform a 12-acre field into an arboretum full of native Chinese architecture and shrubbery.
However, after further investigation from US counterintelligence, officials discovered that the project could be used for espionage, according to a CNN report.
The report states that Chinese architects had planned to build the pagoda just two miles from the US Capitol at one of the highest points in Washington, DC, which counterintelligence believe would have been in prime position for espionage activities.
China also wanted to bypass US Customs through diplomatic pouches, and prevent US officials from inspecting the shipped materials that would be used to build the pagoda, according to the report.
The project was then quietly killed by federal officials.
However, federal officials have raised strong concerns regarding China’s many recent property investments near critical United States infrastructure, which include US military bases.
An investigation conducted by the FBI revealed that China repeatedly attempted to install Chinese-made Huawei equipment atop cell towers near Midwest military bases, according to the Daily Mail .The Chinese equipment is capable of intercepting secret Defense Department communications including those used by US strategic command, which oversees the nation’s nuclear weapons, according to the FBI.”This gets into some of the most sensitive things we do,” a former FBI official told CNN. “It would impact our ability for essentially command and […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
