    For decades, the American political class and the corporate chieftains have embraced a myth that is now disappearing before their eyes.  They believed that capitalism would tame communist China, that trade with China would change China.

    Once hundreds of millions of Chinese started reading the financial pages to see how their stocks were doing, they would put down Mao’s Little Red Book.  Or so they thought.  History may eventually conclude that this was one of the biggest mistakes ever made by free people in the history of free people making mistakes.

    Communist China is a rising power.  Ironically, its growing strength has been fueled in large part by our economic decisions.  And while American youth are tearing down statues of our founding fathers, the communist mass murderer Mao Zedong is enjoying renewed adoration among Chinese youth.

    Thankfully, President Donald Trump is attempting to reverse this disturbing trend.

    How bad is the threat from China?  FBI Director Christopher Wray gave a shocking presentation [Tuesday] describing what he is seeing.  Here’s a brief overview of Wray’s warning:

    • The FBI currently has about 2,500 counterintelligence operations focused on communist China.  Nearly half of all its cases involve China.
    • China’s cyberattacks, predatory trade practices and economic espionage have resulted in “one of the largest transfers of wealth in human history,” and “the potential economic harm to American businesses and the economy almost defies calculation.”
    • China is collecting or stealing personal data on virtually every American.  This is one reason why the Trump Administration may ban the popular social media app Tik Tok.
    • The communist regime is also threatening Chinese nationals in the United States
