Brandon J. Weichert’s latest piece for The Washington Times addressing how Biden’s FAA played fast-and-loose with regulatory discretion to stick it to Musk on the eve of his Starship launch. Luckily, he was given the go-ahead, but the point has been made by Biden’s team: we can screw you over at any point. But as I assess in this piece it isn’t just Musk being screwed over. It’s the American people and the future of humanity.

Gordon G. Chang, Martin Seiff, and Brandon J. Weichert join Paolo von Schirach of the Global Policy Institute to discuss Sino-American relations after COVID-19.
China has engaged in a decades-long strategy of encirclement of the United States. They have focused on capturing critical resources in order to hold America hostage. In my recent op-ed at American Greatness, I argue that the United States must mine the moon and asteroids before China does, in order to prevent China’s total dominance of rare earth metals.
As the United States searches for greater leverage to use against China, it must be willing to look outside the economic realm and toward the geopolitical. It must be willing to recognize Taiwan as a fully free and sovereign state.
The Chinese are a great people with a rich history. They have known general dominance throughout their 4,000-year history. What’s more, as Deng Xiaoping said when the Soviet Union collapsed, China has been engaged in a second Cold War with the United States. They’ve been winning—and they will continue to do so unless we do more than what we’ve been doing to counter them.
“Bio-hacking, gene-doping, and genetic manipulation are not only the next frontiers for bettering human life. They are, more troublingly, the battlefields of the future. The West is unprepared. What’s worse is that many Western firms are helping to empower America’s enemies in China.”
“China has been playing the greatest game of geopolitical, technological and economic catch-up with the West in history. With their recent strides in all three fields, China has caught up. What’s more, China is poised to beat the United States in the new space race—a race that America, apparently, isn’t even interested in taking part in.”
“Make no mistake: China will not leave Taiwan alone to its own devices. What’s more, the Chinese believe they have a decades-long historical record of American actions supporting Taiwan when faced against a potential Chinese military threat. China has made it their mission to reacquire Taiwan—sooner rather than later. Given America’s previous support for Taiwanese independence, Washington had better be prepared to withstand Chinese attacks against U.S.”
