A lot people, particularly in the D.C. establishment, are careful about what they say concerning China. Well, since yours truly is someone with practically nothing to lose, let me just say that it wouldn’t bother me one bit if every member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was wiped off the map. They’re terrible people and they deserve any repercussion that might come their way. And dictator Xi Jinping DOES look like “Winnie the Pooh” and should be removed and publicly shamed, if not executed, in front of HIS people.

That was me taking it easy on the CCP and its leader.

So what did the CCP do this time to warrant my wrath? Well, no matter how you feel about the totality of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, it should anger you to know that it’s being reported that CCP-linked hackers “stole at least $20 million in U.S. Covid relief benefits, including Small Business Administration loans and unemployment insurance funds in over a dozen states, according to the Secret Service” in a Monday report by NBC News.

NBC News reported the following about the alleged theft:

The theft of taxpayer funds by the Chengdu-based hacking group known as APT41 is the first instance of pandemic fraud tied to foreign, state-sponsored cybercriminals that the U.S. government has acknowledged publicly, but may just be the tip of the iceberg, according to U.S. law enforcement officials and cybersecurity experts.

The officials and experts, most speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject matter, say other federal investigations of pandemic fraud also seem to point back to foreign state-affiliated hackers.

Secret Service national pandemic fraud recovery coordinator Roy Dotson thinks that the fraud and subsequent theft is widespread across the U.S.

“It would be crazy to think this group didn’t target all 50 states,” Dotson told NBC News.

If that’s the case, and the funds stolen affected small businesses, then how many American jobs and middle income-run businesses could’ve been saved with that money?

This is why, while focusing on the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the sleeping giant that is the CCP might be robbing the U.S. blind more than it already has over the past 30 years or so.

Don’t get it twisted, folks. China is THE enemy.
