Communist China cannot be trusted.

If there’s any lesson we’ve learned through China’s decades-long quest to overtake the United States as the world’s superpower, it’s that.  And that’s why the Biden Administration needs to be using every tool available to keep American technology out of the hands of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

However, there’s at least one tool that President Biden is completely neglecting: the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).  Despite the fact that Beijing continues to steal American technology, BIS continues to approve more than 90 percent of commercial licenses that CCP-affiliated entities apply for.

I recently chaired a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Accountability to investigate why the Biden Administration is determined to use BIS to give away American’s strategic advantage.

Whether it’s the spy balloon that was built with American parts, or the CCP’s newest missile, keeping tech away from China is truly a matter of national security.  The Biden Administration needs to step up and quit trying to appease our adversaries.
