Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren thinks China is playing the United States, and she credits their “whole-of-government” strategy for their success.
“There is a North Korean official apparently coming to America. You said the president doesn’t look like he has a strategy, but it looks like his calling off the summit last week seems to have lit a fire under the North Koreans. Three hostages have been released, so maybe there is a strategy?” John Dickerson asked the senator on CBS This Morning.
“You know, look. North Korea is a bad actor, we understand that, uh and uh, the president had already promised that they could have a meeting with the President of the United States, something that both Kim Jong Un’s father and grandfather had long, long sought,” Warren said.
“Then it’s been back and it’s been forth. I want this to work, I want this to work to reduce the threat to South Korea, to Japan, to our allies in the region, to the United States of America, to the entire world, but it really takes a strategy and I look at the comparison with China,” she said.
“Look at what China is doing,” Warren continued. “China’s got the long term arc and it’s playing everybody. It’s playing North Korea, it’s playing South Korea, it’s playing the United States of America because it has a long-term whole-of-government strategy that keeps driving towards an end.”
It wasn’t a big slip-up, but Warren reveals here her admiration for a system of big government that controls every aspect of a citizen’s life. Communist China has been able to accomplish their “strategies” via tyranny, oppression, and total control.
As a 2020 presidential hopeful Warren has a real shot at pursuing her top-down, big-government agenda.
That is, unless We the People can call an Article V Convention of States before she gets her chance.
A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government. These amendments can return power to the states, where the people have real influence over their elected representatives.
The feds have controlled this country long enough. It’s time we stop D.C. “elites” like Warren who only want to give Washington more control than it already has.
