In both military intelligence and naval warfare, China is outclassing America. How can we close that gap and minimize the threat from our CCP enemy?

From The Epoch Times. The United States is facing a spy threat from communist China that is greater in scope than the Soviets during the Cold War, according to FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Furthermore, compared to China, the United States employs a smaller group of intelligence agents, Mr. Wray told The New York Times in an interview published on Sept. 17. …

This is not the first time Mr. Wray has raised the issue. In April, Mr. Wray told House lawmakers that Chinese hackers outnumbered bureau agents by “at least 50 to 1.” He added that China’s hacking program “is bigger than that of every nation combined.”

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is waging a covert war on U.S. soil, and the FBI has been on the frontline confronting the regime’s espionage operations. In recent months, two individuals were arrested after being accused of operating a secret police station in New York City, and two Navy sailors were arrested for allegedly passing on sensitive military information to Chinese intelligence officers.

“They’re going after everything,” Mr. Wray said. “What makes the P.R.C. [People’s Republic of China] intelligence apparatus so pernicious is the way it uses every means at its disposal against us all at once, blending cyber, human intelligence, corporate transactions and investments to achieve its strategic goals.”

Experts have warned that the CCP’s strategic goals ultimately lead to one thing: to displace the United States as the world’s leading power. …

CCP Threat

The FBI has thousands of open Chinese intelligence investigations, Mr. Wray told the NY Times, and each of its 56 field offices has active cases. These investigations include efforts by Chinese spies to recruit informants, steal information, hack into systems, and harass Chinese dissidents.

The CCP is committing acts of transnational repression around the world, mainly with the objective of silencing its critics abroad. One recent example involved efforts by the regime to intimidate a U.S. Olympic figure skater and her family, who had spoken out against Beijing’s human rights abuses on social media. …

“China’s government doesn’t only repress people within its own borders,” FBI Boston wrote in an X post on Sept. 15, asking people to call the FBI if they become the CCP’s targets. “It also targets, threatens, and harasses U.S.-based Tibetans and UyghursFalun Gong members, Taiwan and Hong Kong pro-democracy advocates, and anyone who questions the legitimacy or authority of the Chinese Communist Party.” …

From The Epoch Times. A leaked U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) slide is garnering concern about the Chinese regime’s continued capability to produce naval vessels at an alarmingly faster rate than the United States.

The leaked graphic depicts shipyards in China as being able to build new naval vessels at a rate that’s 232 times greater than that of the United States. The ONI confirmed its authenticity to The Drive, which first published the slide.

This outsized capacity to support China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Navy has caused some analysts to raise the alarm that the United States won’t be able to close the gap for many years to come.

Retired Capt. James Fanell, a former director of intelligence and information operations for the U.S. Pacific Fleet, doesn’t share the same level of pessimism, although he does acknowledge the challenges involved in rebuilding the United States’ shipbuilding capacity.

He says closing the gap with the Chinese regime will require “a dramatic shift in the policy of unaccountable engagement that now characterizes the Biden administration.”

“The challenges are also greater than just political will,” Mr. Fanell told The Epoch Times. “There is an issue of America’s shipbuilding industry that has gone into disrepair since WWII.” …

According to the ONI, the Chinese regime’s navy consisted of 355 vessels in 2020, while the United States had 296 vessels. By 2035, China is expected to reach an estimated 475 ships, while the United States would reach 305 to 317. …

How to Close the Gap

Mr. Fanell says Congress must pass and fund similar legislation to the Two-Ocean Navy Act that was passed in 1940 and allowed the country to increase its naval presence and capabilities in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. …

“America’s ingenuity should be unleashed to build up our fleet of warships,” he said.

“For instance, we should be able to build a fleet of unmanned warships, along with equipping our existing mothball fleet with supersonic/hypersonic anti-ship cruise missiles that could turn these retired combatants into arsenal ships that could be used to sink the People’s Liberation Army Navy invasion fleet.”

“It’s disturbing how ill-informed and naive the average American is on China,” U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Michael Studeman said (pdf) during a presentation at a naval conference in February. …

How are you praying for America against this growing threat from China?

If China is surpassing us, it is partly because we have become addicted to/obsessed by the conveniences and pleasures of technology. We need to stop using technology to solve our problems and provide for us and start using our thinking, creative brains and hard work instead. The technology which supposedly “serves ” us is controlling and enslaving us instead. Even if one is wealthy enough to have a cook, one still needs to know how to cook and navigate a kitchen on one’s own.

We have GOD! There are more of us than the enemy because we have GOD’S armies ready to fight for the heirs of salvation. I read a lot of the IFA “stories for prayer,” and I get depressed until I remember WHO I serve and WHO I belong to. It may not be your intent, but your articles can make one feel hopeless, and that since satan has everything sewed up, what’s the use? Confucius schools in America! Chinese buying up all of our property in America! Biden sending all of our tax money to Ukraine! China surpassing America! Etc. A
and Etc.! And on and on and on ad naseum! It seems that only at the end of some articles is there a tiny ray of hope! Our GOD is the CREATOR of ALL! We start from a place of strength no matter what! I would like to see more articles of us being on the Offensive instead of the defensive! FATHER GOD I bind every trap of the devil and his demons against America! FATHER GOD please send YOUR angels to surround the enemy and cause them to flee 7 ways! FATHER GOD please direct us in the Offensive and help us to defeat every trap that has been demonically set for us! For our Hope is in YOU, CHRIST JESUS our LORD! In JESUS NAME i pray! Amen!

Heavenly Father, we come before You with many prayers. Please draw us in a closer relationship with You, that we might know Your good and perfect will. China has become the modern day Tower of Babel, building a name for themselves above all. Genesis 11:5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the sons of men had built. And the LORD said, “Behold, they are one people and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do; and nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let US go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. LORD come down and see the CCP and it’s leadership. Scatter and confuse the workings of this man made entity/FALSE god. Let their one language to dominate supreme, become scattered, disassembled, foreign, unrecognizable and unsuccessful. Instead, let them hear and receive the “Gospel” of Jesus Christ. Then Father, let the voice in one accord be raised to You alone in praise and thanksgiving. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

It is written “It shall not stand; It shall not come to pass.” Isaiah 7:7, in the name of the Jesus Christ, amen.

Father we will not dwell in hopelessness, but in the hope you give. We look to you to give our leaders wisdom to act and our citizens knowledge and care for what happens. We praise your name for revealing things we can pray about and act on.

FATHER, Send YOUR Angel Armies to Remove EVIL CCP from Western Hemisphere-THE AMERICA’S.
FATHER, America cannot afford to continue to BORROW money from the Chinese and GIVE to Ukraine, and the world.
Obiden gave Bagram Airbase to CCP along with Billions of dollars worth of military weapons in Afghanistan withdrawal.
AND, also to IRAN … (Biden is “Axis of Evil”)
