The Epoch Times investigative reporter Kevin Stocklin discusses how efforts to remake America’s electric grid, including Biden’s green energy transition, has left China, an accused saboteur of our infrastructure, as an essential supplier of transformers and other critical hardware. A new Epoch Times article written by investigative reporter Kevin Stocklin reveals that, while it appears China’s “cartels” are lending a hand on the power front, it could also leave America’s electric grid vulnerable to foreign control and sabotage. “If they’re able to knock the grid out, basically modern society is going to fall,” Joe Trotter, director of the Energy, Environment, and Agriculture Task Force at the American Legislative Exchange Counsel, told The Epoch Times. “The modern grid runs our whole infrastructure and without power, we don’t have refrigeration, our food supply goes down, our water supply goes down. If the power went out across the entire United States for a month, people would die. There’d be widespread looting. Two-to-three months and you might actually have a full societal collapse.” Despite the potential attacks we’ve already seen from countries like China, Russia and Iran, utilities continue to import essential hardware from China, with an estimated 10-15 percent of our electric transformers now being supplied by Chinese companies. In 2020, former President Donald Trump issued Executive Order 13920, which declared a state of emergency regarding America’s power grid and barred new imports of Chinese hardware. Upon taking office, President Biden rescinded that order. In 2019, federal agents seized a transformer that arrived from China, on its way to being installed in a Colorado electric grid, and took it to a lab where it was disassembled for analysis. While the report remains classified, intelligence sources say they found that it contained microchips that intentionally allowed its functions to be hacked. Critics say that China, due to things like “backdoors” in microchips installed in grid hardware, will have the ability to shut down America’s power grid at will. Kevin Stocklin joins us now to discuss his article further.
The Epoch Times’ Nan Su discusses the latest problem with China, just as it’s looking to loosen its visa rules for international travelers. China is looking to push tourism back into its circle with loosened visa rules. However, it’s doing so when a COVID epidemic could be breaking out within its borders. Per this report from Reuters, China is looking to exempt citizens of France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and Malaysia from requiring visas to visit, in an effort to increase its post-pandemic tourism. It will open a period of approximately one year to do so, starting on December 1st, in an effort to increase its finances with visitors.

America's Last Stand: Will You Vote to Save or Destroy America in 2024 By Drew Thomas Allen PUBLIUS SPECIAL GUEST: Drew Thomas Allen, author of America's Last Stand: Will You Vote to Save or Destroy America in 2024. From one of America’s rising conservative stars comes a brutally honest account of the historic failures of the Biden administration and the most critical and urgent arguments for reclaiming American independence from our tyrannical captors in 2024…before it’s too late. In America’s Last Stand, Drew Thomas Allen masterfully lays out the real and severe stakes of the 2024 presidential election. America is in peril, and the Biden administration has plunged America into a Dark Age, characterized by our nation’s objective moral, cultural, intellectual, and economic decay. Americans have experienced for themselves life under both the Biden presidency and the Trump presidency. Americans should ask themselves a simple question: Were you better off under the Trump presidency or the Biden presidency? America’s Last Stand chronicles the failures and lies of the Biden administration, unleashes a devastating account of the Democratic Party’s unforgivable history, and warns Americans of their plans to eradicate our freedoms and destroy American prosperity and security in the future. Allen also sets the record straight on the countless lies that have been spread about former President Trump. Only confronting the truth can save America, and this book is America’s red pill. Allen makes the irrefutable case to reelect former President Trump, reject authoritarianism, and put America back on the path to prosperity and preserve this nation for our own posterity. America’s Last Stand is the definitive voting guide for the 2024 presidential election—the most important book in America. Every American should read it before casting their vote. In your sunset years, will you tell your children and grandchildren how you fought to preserve their freedom—or how you were responsible for squandering it?
