America’s Enemies Continue to Play a Dangerous Game

Tick, tick, tick… Is anybody else hearing a ticking time bomb these days? If you’re keeping an eye on the news, I’m guessing you are.

War in Ukraine between Russia and the country it attacked for no good reason. War in the Middle East following Hamas’ brutal attack against Israel. 

Chinese and Russian warplanes entering the defense zones of Japan and South Korea. China floating a spy balloon over America. And infiltrating our critical cyber infrastructure.

It seems like everyone is itching for a fight these days. It’s no wonder many people are getting nervous. Especially considering the firepower many countries possess and the increasing strength of artificial intelligence. 

That’s what I’d like to discuss with you today. A little later I’m going to ask you to contribute your thoughts, theories, or opinions about world conditions. And what the future might hold for us.

Undetected Cyber Infrastructure Attacks 

Let’s start with cyber activity. According to a recent Fox News report, China infiltrated America’s cyber infrastructure over a year ago. Undetected.

Here are the targets we now know about: a water utility in Hawaii, a port on the U.S. West Coast, and an oil and gas pipeline.

There are probably many more. In fact, the Washington Post reports this about hackers associated with China’s People’s Liberation Army. They’ve gained access to at least 25 critical U.S. systems. 

Their goal is to disrupt logistics, create chaos, and cause panic. And it works. It wasn’t that long ago that a ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline caused fuel prices to rise on our East Coast. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) got involved quickly. 

Attacking From Within

Jen Easterly is director of the DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. She was reported as saying that Chinese cyber activity used to be centered on political and economic espionage. 

Now it’s focused on gaining a foothold in America’s cyber infrastructure for an obvious reason. China desires the ability to cause a cascading cyberattack against the U.S. to accomplish its goals. 

Some U.S. power companies are better protected than others. But they are all vulnerable to attacks by Chinese hackers.

A power grid privately operated in Texas has been under a cyberattack in recent months. As have several electric utilities outside the U.S.

Taiwan at Center of Hawaii Attack

Some may wonder why the Chinese have targeted Hawaii. Others feel the answer is obvious. China has made no secret of the fact that it wants to “reunify” with Taiwan. Taiwan wishes to remain independent. 

China could potentially disrupt an American response to its attack on Taiwan with a cyberattack in Hawaii just prior to its physical attack. 

What is America doing to protect itself from cyberattacks from China? The National Security Agency is encouraging utilities to make their security more robust. 

Among their recommendations are the use of physical security keys. As well as hardware tokens for protection of property and intelligence files.

How to Protect Yourself

Individual Americans can also help protect themselves from cyberattacks. Here are five ways to do that:

  • Regularly update and strengthen passwords. Use a mix of characters, numbers, and symbols.
  • Enable multi-factor authentication on all personal accounts.
  • Remain vigilant against phishing attempts. Don’t click on suspicious links or download attachments from unknown sources.
  • Keep all software up to date with the latest security patches. Including antivirus and operating systems.
  • Be cautious about the amount of personal information shared online.

Japan & South Korea Scramble Jets

Now back to provocative actions taken outside of cyberspace. Recently South Korea and Japan scrambled its jets. That was in response to Chinese and Russian warplanes entering their defense zones.

For you aircraft buffs, the planes were China’s H-6, J-16 and Y-8. And Russia’s Tu-95 and Su-35. They were flying toward the East China Sea through the channel between Japan and South Korea. 

The aircraft did not violate South Korea’s territorial airspace. That’s protected by international laws. But they did enter the country’s Air Defense Identification Zone.

Russian officials justify their actions by saying they don’t recognize South Korea’s air defense zone. Chinese officials say that because the zone is not in territorial airspace, there is no violation.

What Do You Think? 

As I mentioned earlier, we at 4Patriots are very interested in your opinions. We believe we’re living in very scary times. 

It feels like we’re sitting on a powder keg. And all it would take is one more provocative move by a foreign power to launch an all-out war. 

In fact, we’re already at war when it comes to technology. A number of countries are doing everything they can to disrupt life here by causing security breaches. As well as in other freedom-loving countries. 

What do you think about what’s going on in the world today? And what the future looks like for Americans?

    thank you for your products. God bless you all.

    Pendulums swing, as do these political winds and priorities. Economic pressures, however, can activate or trigger a swing into a punch. If the vectors are sufficiently attractive in any trade-off analysis vs. costs, then you have what has been happening. Our U.S. military took over 100 hits before our leadership ok’d a response in the Middle East Proxy wars. Why?
    Academia has steered our kids left for decades now. We have many symptoms associated with that active all across the U.S. manifesting as they will sooner or later.
    Social Media: TikTok is toxic and a national threat due to its location tracking. Dumb military kids are ignoring that as it identifies their personal life choices as a military threat – their egos cannot reconcile their culpabilities. The Chinese version is legit- educational with math and other study topics as part of their design. What does the North American version have as its priority designed-in algorithms to push? Similar with other social media sources. Elon Musk helped to peel back the double-talking social media Twitter layers of lying to everyone about what they were really about. That continues. This next election cycle will have more sophisticated versions of the past deceptions powered by AI. You have better school yourself on what that can do and see examples. Several sources, like Kim Komando, have ways for you to see and look for the AI-generated content to avoid these deceptions. But, they are “slick”.

    If standing up to bullies on the soverign levels of the world is akin to “toxic masculinity” and that explains the reticent decision-making of our leaders here in the U.S. presently, we see the results of that with innocent people being unprotected as the bullies roll-through, fly-over, intimidate, bomb, rape, kidnap – what have we seen? Bullies do not care for talk. They only know superior force and the willingness to frickin’ use it. Then, they tend to stand down.

    We have people we can elect who will stand up and fight. We might have to stand up ourselves and be part of it since the “Deep State” has been a sort of army for decades now and they are working their agendas to their credit and benefit, frankly. Our approach will have to have vectors to resolve these forces that threaten us, and because we are, so it goes for the rest of the world around us, especially our allies. So, when we stand up for our values, and elect and challenge those forces that seek to destroy what built our country, we are also standing up for our allies and peoples that they protect. Right now, what we have been doing is manifesting as failing everywhere.

    Change-up, step-up, challenge, stand-up to, stand-up for, fight – I think we have to face these as our options now to put into action.

    So you see what I mean: our company’s #1 priority is the fentanyl/opiate overdose crisis. We are fighting that and are in 35 states so far. And, we are only starting. Our biggest fight? Yes, each state’s internal bureaucracies – they make change hard, while their state body counts are rising. The “Deep State” reticence is absurd….

    It’s already too late the train has left the station.

  • Jon D. - January 24, 2024

    The most disturbing part is we have people right here in America within our gov. who are helping with these attacks in any way they can. It’s predicted in the Bible that a great nation will be destroyed from within.
    The Chinese gov. realized it doesn’t need to use nukes (at present time anyway) when they can just buy Obuydin and many others within our own gov.
    which is absolute treason.

    Yes I do agree. It is getting scary. I want to get another generator. They,are great. Thanks.

    I have the heath food for years. It has helped my blood pressure and the greens are great too. But I am taking Anti OX Daily in a subscription and not getting it. They told me I have to resubscribe. But I can not figure out how to do that on the web site. Thanks.

  • Maria McKiernan - January 24, 2024

    I certainly do think that we are on the brink of WWIII, but I don’t know how America will fare in the next world conflict.
    There is so much going on “behind the scenes” with people who don’t want our country to be pre-eminent in world affairs anymore that I wonder if it’s not too late to “drain the swamp”.
    Only God knows, and I put my trust in Him for my future, anyway…

  • Stephen Hiller - January 24, 2024

    I am offended by your opening statement that Russia attacked Ukraine “for no good reason”.
    Your lack of historical facts is very sad for an organization called “4Patriots”.
    Editorial comments such as this are a typical leftwing tactic to sway non-thinking readers.

    I love your products and have quite a supply that I have purchased over a few years.
    However, you may have just lost the support of a loyal customer.

    I would appreciate your response – and an editorial correction to this factual error.

  • Mike Peters - January 17, 2024

    As much as you mentioned above, I also am concerned our government is letting our largest threat simply walk across our borders. I pray I am wrong, but I think the damage is done and its a matter of time.
