CPDC and Team B III launch ‘The Brief’ Video: The Chinese Communist Party’s War against America Must Be a Voting Issue in 2022
Must-see for American voters, candidates on the threat, responses
WASHINGTON, D.C.— A powerful briefing designed to equip the American people and those seeking to represent them this fall with the truth about what President Ronald Reagan would call the current generation’s “existential threat to freedom” — the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) — is now available for viewing online. “The Brief” is informed by the work of the Committee on the Present Danger: China (CPDC) and a new book by Team B III (TB3), The CCP is at War with America. It compellingly describes the extent, wellsprings and success of the CCP’s “unrestricted warfare” against this country and the rest of the Free World.
The roughly half-hour video presentation is narrated by Vice Chairman of CPDC and TB3 member Frank Gaffney. He and his colleagues have already personally briefed the 2022 Republican and Democratic nominees for Colorado governor, Heidi Ganahl and Governor Jared Polis, incumbent Members of Congress and candidates for the House and Senate. With the advent of this video version and the help of individuals and grass-roots organizations, CPDC hopes to enable large numbers of those running for elective office and their constituents to recognize that the threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party is and must be a voting issue in 2022 at both the federal and state levels. According to a recent poll conducted by McLaughlin and Associates for the Center for Security Policy, 76 percent of likely voters sampled agreed that they would regard a candidate’s position on China would be “very important,” “important” or “a consideration” this November.
On the occasion of The Brief’s launch following an article about it featured in today’s Epoch Times, Gaffney observed that its goal is to replicate an historic course-correction that occurred in connection with the presidential election of 1980: “Four decades ago, Candidate Ronald Reagan sought and secured a popular mandate to end the policy of engagement with the Soviet Union, then known as ‘détente.’ He powerfully made the case for, instead, rolling-back and ultimately defeating the ‘Evil Empire.’ And, once elected, he did just that. In the face of today’s vastly greater danger from Communist China, we need candidates and voters to undergo a similar education and resolve to take the steps necessary similarly to put the CCP out of business.”
Highlights of The Brief include:
- The CCP’s brutal oppression of the Chinese people and its aspiration to do the same to the rest of the world’s population. The Brief describes myriad steps the Chinese Communists are taking to achieve that global domination.
- The history of the CCP’s unrestricted warfare against America and the techniques it is using to take down this country without using traditional military means. These include the use of fentanyl to kill annually 70,000 or more Americans in Colorado and elsewhere and to devastate our society. Then there are the influence operations and other means of “elite capture” about which Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and FBI Director Christopher Wray have strongly warned in 2020 and in July, respectively. The Brief makes clear that all Americans are being targeted by the Chinese Communist Party, without regard for political persuasions, and therefore that addressing this threat is — and must be — a non-partisan priority.
- Team B III has found that arguably the most devastating of the unrestricted warfare techniques employed by Chinese Communists against America and the rest of the world has been a biological attack. It came in the form of the SARS-CoV-2 virus created in a biowarfare laboratory in Wuhan, China and the resulting COVID-19 pandemic. That deliberate CCP attack has killed roughly a million Americans to date and materially harmed the rest of us.
- The Brief also presents accumulating evidence that the CCP is preparing to engage in kinetic warfare against U.S. allies and interests, and possibly American assets, personnel and territory.
- The Brief concludes with six specific recommended actions that the United States must take in light of the threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party and its actual and prospective warfare against us.
