Why is Joe Biden buying drones from China? Intelligence officials have warned about the danger of buying Chinese-made drones but Joe is buying them anyway.

Back in May, Joe Biden warned armed forces members at a Virginia military base that China believes it will "own" America:

“We’re in a battle between democracies and autocracies,” Biden told troops at Joint Base Langley Eustis in Hampton. “The more complicated the world becomes, the more difficult it is for democracies to come together and reach consensus.

“I’ve spent more time with President Xi [Jinping] of China than any world leader has — for 24 hours of private meetings with him with just an interpreter, 17,000 miles traveling with him in China and here,” the president added. “He firmly believes that China, before the year [20]30, ’35, is going to own America because autocracies can make quick decisions.”

So why the hell is he helping it along? 

According to this disturbing warning from former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, as told to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, reported by Daily Wire:

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday that the Biden administration’s move to buy Chinese drones for federal law enforcement was perplexing and that the move jeopardized U.S. national security. 

Ratcliffe noted that the Trump administration flagged the specific Chinese company in question over what it said was “moderate confidence” that the Chinese company was providing information on U.S. critical infrastructure to the Chinese Communist Party.

“Like so much that Biden administration has done on national security lately, this makes very little sense,” Ratcliffe said. “It’s harmful to our national security. And also, Chinese drone technology is not as good as U.S. drone technology. So it’s hard to make sense out of what’s doing this, other than it is consistent with the Biden administration taking a softer approach, trying to promote a false narrative that somehow China is just a competitor ”

And I bet the CCP companies selling these drones are also buying Hunter’s “artwork”.

Could be we’re buying only the non-computer parts and we’ll supply the computer and software parts. After all, where do all of our washing machines come from?

Also, maybe we’ll reverse engineer their drones and learn from them.

Regardless, it’s a bad idea.

Probably the only source for specialized computer chips needed for American drones due to relentless outsourcing by American capitalists. Oops!

That might make sense. Is the US buying 10 or 10,000?

I’ve spent more time with President Xi [Jinping] of China than any world leader has.

I’m sure the media will ask and find out all about this.

Biden probably also wants to buy those “way cool” exploding helmets from the PRC, which can be triggered remotely from Beijing.

“They bought him, why shouldn’t he buy from them.”

Besides, he doesn’t even have to use his own money.

"Why is Joe Biden buying drones from China?"

He's not, his handlers are.

It would be nice to know the reasoning behind buying the Chinese drones but we’ll never learn that.

The same reason China built those ghost cities and Blackrock bought entire neighborhoods. Our elites will live in China’s ghost cities and our Chinese rulers will live in Blackrocks neighborhoods.
