Congress must address America’s dependency on Chinese technology in defense bill

femaleWhile China may have recently closed its military power gap, Senator John Connin (R-TX) has introduced legislative language that could sabotage the CCP’s predatory military plans in one blow.

Building on the significant achievement of former President Donald Trump in imposing a 25% tariff on Chinese microchips, the Senate
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) will restrict the US buying microchips from companies that work with the Chinese Communist Party.

Microchips are what makes most of America’s modern warfare equipment buzz. However, the US still relies on China for supplies. That’s a problem when companies with CCPs make them and sell them to contractors and suppliers who work with the federal government. And it’s especially problematic if much of China’s strategy to defeat US forces rests on these chips.

According to a new report released in October by the Special Competitive Studies Project, China is looking to use advanced technology to apply its military power “with the purpose of undermining or even surpassing American military power.”

China wants to become the world’s top superpower by becoming the “leader” in the “intelligence war”, a war that uses emerging technologies such as AI, 5G networks and quantum computing to defeat its military rivals. and developed

Becoming a global leader in artificial intelligence (AI), 5G wireless, quantum computing and other related industries is a dangerously short-lived reality.

What skills do you think are needed to operate this intelligent warfare technology? You guessed it: microchip. So, why would Congress allow the federal government to buy products that are tied to the same CCPs it is trying to use to destroy the United States and its interests? That sounds unsafe. This raises many issues, including but not limited to the prospects of future supply chain issues and backdoors that can lead to cyberattacks and espionage.

While both sides agree that reliance on these Chinese chips should be reduced, they disagree on the best approach.

Some opposed the CHIPS Act, which aims to reduce reliance on this foreign technology by strengthening US production. Because the $250 billion price tag is too expensive and too favorable for wealthy conglomerates. Senator Cornyn’s NDAA proposal eliminates all these concerns. We don’t spend a lot of money we don’t have. Nor does it ban all microchips. It only gets to the root of the problem by preventing microchips made by companies affiliated with the CCP from entering the federal government’s way.

After hearing gruesome speeches and manifestos at the CCP’s 20th Party Congress last month, including the party’s plans to prioritize technology and innovation, For strategic purposes, all legislators must agree that protecting the United States from potential Chinese technology threats is the nation’s top priority. Getting the Cornyn amendments through the NDAA would be a good starting point.

Let the rational brain prevail. Our national security depends on it.
