China Is Undermining The US Through Elite Capture: Author

• by Frank Fang and David Zhang

Schweizer, who recently released his new book "Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win," said that his book shows how appalling it is that some of the elites have been willing to "kowtow to the regime" just so that they have access to the Chinese market.

"They should be embarrassed," he added. "They seem to be all too happy to do the bidding for Beijing when it comes to American politics."

Schweizer made the remarks during a recent interview with EpochTV's "China Insider" program. He is also the president of U.S.-based think tank Government Accountability Institute.

"I think what's important for people to keep in mind is that Beijing doesn't have to lobby for its own interest, because there are so many powerful interests in the United States that will lobby on their behalf," he said.

The present course will only mean that China will replace the United States as the world's top superpower, according to Schweizer.

"Unless we start to take radical action, we will lose, there is no question in my mind," he said. "We will lose because our elites will be happy to sell out, collect their money, and position themselves in elite positions for generations to come."

That outcome does not necessarily mean that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would occupy the United States, he added, but America as people know it will be very different.
