Navy Gets Bad News

The United States Navy will likely suffer during the Biden administration a new report points out.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The United States Navy launched an expansive buildup under the Trump administration to counter China. But veteran national security officials say the more immediate challenge may come from President Joe Biden.

The battle for control of the seas could play a decisive role in future American-Chinese relations and global stability. China touts the largest naval fleet in the world, with several aircraft carriers under construction over the next decade. Strategy documents from China indicate that it sees the expansion and projection of its naval strength as critical to challenging the United States. A former Trump administration official urged Biden to preserve gains in shipbuilding.

“Maritime competition is if not the key area of competition, one of the key areas along with cyber and airpower,” the official said. “Do you want to live in a world where the economic and security rules are set by the People’s Republic of China? That’s what’s at stake over the next 10 years or so.”

The Trump administration designed new plans to build up a 500-ship fleet by 2045 and put longterm financial resources into doing just that. In many ways, the effort to rebuild the Navy started from the ground up, as the fleet fell into disrepair during the meager defense spending of the Obama administration. By 2015, America’s fleet shrunk to its smallest levels since World War I with 284 warships. At the end of the Trump administration, the Navy returned to a force size of 299 vessels, with at least 79 future ships under contract for construction.

The Trump administration focused on naval build-up in order to counter China’s aspiration to control the high seas.

This is no small reason that this fake, fraud, disaster of an administration must be reversed and our rightful President put in office. Biden is owned by the communists and is selling us all out.

So agree with you! Just waiting for the facts to be looked at! Hoping it is not too late! Arizona has just decided to look at the facts! Those Dominion machines should not ever be allowed again in our elections period! Waiting for many arrests!

If Biden goes to a nursing home either Kamala Harris or Susan Rice will take his place. They can’t be any worse than him but they will last longer.

Any plan to remove bad actors from the administration should START with Nancy Pelosi, then Harris and then Biden. This assures that we don’t go from BAD to REALLY BAD.
