It looks like Biden’s Administration is about to quit going after academics caught selling out to China.
You had to know Biden’s crew would rather go after conservatives than stop communists.
And now Merrick Garland is getting pushed to let academics get away with what could amount to treason.
We already know the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) would rather investigate “Memaw MAGA” rather than do their job protecting our country’s national interests. (‘Cause there’s nothing sketchier than a sweet old lady holding a flag.)
Back in October Garland said, “The People’s Republic of China is a serious threat to our intellectual property. They represent a serious threat with respect to espionage.”
But now it looks like Garland is more than a little tempted to sweep any China/Ivy League bioterrorism connections under the rug.
This new direction comes as more details about Dr. Anthony Fauci’s attempts to coverup a possible Wuhan lab leak that could have sparked the pandemic that’s caused millions of deaths and at least $11 trillion in damages.
At this point, Garland called for a review into the DOJ approach which should be finished in the next few weeks.
This news comes just weeks after Dr. Charles Lieber was convicted of hiding his ties to China—along with millions of dollars—it looks like the China Initiative may be shut down just as it started investigating a list of about 7,000 academics who were part of China’s Thousand Talents Program.
Garland is under plenty of pressure to cave in and give up on the one legitimate piece of work his office is undertaking.
A letter signed by 192 Yale professors calls on Garland to end the program which was started in 2018 to deal with Chinese espionage.
Protestors gathering outside of the Department of Justice are also demanding he stop holding unethical professors accountable.
“Stop the China Initiative as we know it. Catch the spies, not the Chinese American scientists,” Haipei Shue, the president of United Chinese Americans, told Fox News.
But the problem is it looks like American scientists like Lieber have been selling secrets to the Chinese government under the cover of “academic cooperation.”
It seems especially suspicious that Lieber, who is the former Chemistry Department Chair at Harvard, just happened to be working on virus related work in the same city where Covid-19 was turned loose on the world.
In spite of his clear lack of any sort of ethical grounding, Lieber is considered one of the brightest minds in the world.
Back in 2011 Harvard Magazine described his incredible “development of a bio-compatible transistor the size of a virus.”
Clear back in 2001 he had developed the underlying technology to make that possible through a process called “liquid computing.”
Fast forward to this decade—and he took his cutting-edge research to the Wuhan University of Technology where the government gave him $1.5 million to set up the “Harvard-WUT Nano Key Lab.”
He hid both the millions he was making—and the fact that he was helping China with research from the United States Federal Government.
While we don’t know what went on inside the lab in China, we do know Lieber’s work helped with the development of bio-nanoelectronic sensors that can detect diseases down to every single infectious virus particle.
As bad as that is, there’s no telling what else the China Initiative is on the cusp of revealing.
We do know Lieber may have had numerous partners in crime.
For instance, while more than 100 faculty members at Texas A&M were involved in China’s Thousand Talents program, only five voluntarily disclosed that they were working for the communist regime.
In the past year China has made it abundantly clear that the country has zero respect for America.
The main question now is whether our leaders will even bother to put up a fight—or simply let the communist regime take over every aspect of our lives.
