Patrick Byrne, founder and former CEO of Overstock, said that China is “taking us out from within” during an interview with Dr. Jerome Corsi on Monday.
“The greatest way to fight a war, in the Chinese way of thinking, is not to have to fight at all. That’s what they’ve done here,” Byrne said.
Byrne studied Chinese history at Beijing Normal University from 1983 to 1984. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Chinese studies from Dartmouth College.
“Though we spend a trillion dollars a year between our military and our intelligence, national security circles … that trillion dollars we have and we’ve built, you know, things that can stop all their planes and their missiles and all kinds of things. But we missed the one they use, which is not a fight at all, not firing a bullet or missile at all, but taking us out from within. And that’s what’s going on.”
Byrne pointed out that the Chinese regime is engaged in “a slow coup.”
“It’s a revolution. The stages of such a revolution are very well mapped out. We understand this. It’s demoralization, disorientation, crisis, then normalization: those four steps.”
“The demoralization is what happened this year with COVID,” Byrne continued.
“The disorientation is this kookiness we’ve been seeing for about six months,” Byrne said, referring to Antifa, the Black Lives Matter movement, and other things, such as buildings and police stations being lit on fire, and people being harassed for their political views while out dining.
“That’s all to disorient you. It’s to tell you, ‘You are not living in the America you thought you were living in,’” he said.
“The crisis is, clearly an imposter president has been stood up,” Byrne added in reference to the contested election results.

Doesn’t take a mastermind to figure that one out. The small numbers of Americans that pay attention, and are outraged, are also powerless.
School age kids would do well to learn Chinese, along with learning to love socialism, and the 57, (and counting), genders.
Maybe if everyone smoked some medicine.
My cousin’s son is a math major at Duke. He said that a math degree there automatically comes with a minor in Chinese.
As a wise guest on CNBC once said...
China has central planning by scientists, engineers, and mathematicians, and the US has central planning by lawyers.
Neither one is good, but by definition they win.
“...Doesn’t take a mastermind to figure that one out....”
But every once in a while it DOES take someone to point it out to folks not aware of the threat.
At the very least, he stood up and pointed it out to people, some of whom will take notice.
Is it enough, at this point? That’s the real question...
“Is it enough, at this point? That’s the real question...”
Do phones have fast internet? Can you view tik tok and snapchat? Yes?
Then the answer to the real question is No.
Just like Jugartha verses the Romans. Rome had become corrupt and could be bought. The good news is Jugartha became too aggressive and was destroyed.
You are probably correct.
They had to study for that? Geeze the the history of American politics is the history of corruption.
In addition, our information infrastructure had already bought into the idea the USA needed to be destroyed for a new world order, while the Chinese Communist Party keeps tight control of their information infrastructure.
The stupid globalists think their Chinese overlords will not destroy them.
He’s 100% correct!!!
Our GOP politicians, especially here in Georgia, are prime examples of this corruption.
We may as well be voting for communism when we vote in Georgia. Georgia’s Brian Kemp, David Ralston, Brad Raffensperger and Geoff Duncan have sold out to China’s communist party.
yes and don’t forget the push for exotic languages in our public school systems-
Mandarin & Arabic
Trump is not corrupt.
“’Diversity’ is weakness and will be our undoing.”
It’s a complex thing. Diversity can be an asset, as long as you also have assimilation, (the melting pot). Diversity as an objective leads to division, and ultimately balkanization.
The Marxists have pushed us down the path to the later.
My wife bristles when I say this is one of, if not the, most corrupt countries on earth. We just make it look legal and genteel not crass and ugly like in so many of the other 32 countries I have worked in.
Our politicians get all indignant about corruption to hide their own.
The problem is the money in DC...before 1950 they had little money.then we got all these departments that regulate are lives and we do not know it..
