Recently, the United States is ramping up its efforts to combat Chinese espionage and influence on college campuses.

It comes as the administration is using an “all-of-government” national security approach to counter the Chinese Communist Party infiltration. The controversial Chinese-backed Confucius Institutes are particularly under scrutiny over concerns it pushes propaganda and restricts freedom of expression in U.S. classrooms.

Meanwhile, a number of high profile speakers including national security adviser Robert O’Brien and FBI Director Christopher Wray, have given highly critical and lengthy speeches criticizing China’s regime. These speeches were unprecedented in their scope.

Today we have Brian Kennedy on the show to talk about the threat China’s influence poses in the United States. Brian is currently the Chairman of the Committee on the Present Danger: China, and also the author of “Communist China’s War Inside America,” available on Amazon now.
