A news release from US Customs and Border Patrol on March 27 stated that they seized nearly 2,000 fake IDs and two fake passports at the Port of Memphis. The shipments originated in China. Yet another action by a nation whose leadership is bent on destroying Western nations and America in particular.
The fake IDs were smuggled in the bottom of boxes that contained a tassel called a “Chinese knot” and destined for various places across the country. They were turned over tot eh Fraudulent Analysis Unit where they were determined to be fake.
“Some may think fake IDs are mostly associated with underaged drinking, but it’s much more than that. Fraudulent IDs can also be associated with identity theft and terrorist activity. With all the uncertainty currently facing our nation, it is inherent that CBP Memphis Officers/Agriculture specialists remain steadfast in securing the nation’s borders.” Michael Neipert, CBP Area Port of Memphis Director
The fake documents are only one small part of the continuing saga of China’s attempt to undermine Western nations, including our own. Is it deliberate?
They sent thousands of inaccurate COVID-19 tests to European countries. They released 5 million people from Wuhan after the Chinese New Year when they knew the virus was out there. They lied about the virus knowing full well it was transmitted person to person. They stifled doctors who tried to warn the world what was coming. They sent faulty masks (Netherlands had to recall 600,000 of them.) Spain spent $467M on Chinese medical equipment that was significantly substandard.
They may still be lying about the virus, as literally thousands of urns were sent to China for the ashes of people who died.
“They say they’ve only had 2,500 cases that resulted in deaths or so, yet a single mortuary has ordered more than 5,000 urns. You can look at these basic facts to know that the Chinese Communist Party is still lying today, as they were in December and January, and that’s why what could have been a local problem in Wuhan turned into a global pandemic from which more than 2,000 Americans have now died.” Sen Tom Cotton
Bad Track Record
In the past they’ve sent poisoned pet food to the USA – many people’s pets died before they figured out where the problem originated. They created a giant communications company, Huawei, that is said to compromise national security due to surreptitious spying on US corporations and military. They’ve sent us toxic candy & toothpaste, radioactive drywall, and counterfeit electronic components.
In some instances it reveals little control over their exports or the criminal element. In others, it appears to be deliberate acts of sabotage.
And now they’ve sent fake IDs hidden under a “Chinese knot” – a ‘good luck’ tassel touted as an Asian art form. Those fake documents could be used for anything from a kid who wants to buy booze to a terrorist who desires to buy explosives.
