Though we've been warned numerous times by many people, the Biden administration isn't taking the threat of communist China seriously enough.
According to Breitbart, a bombshell new report from Strider Technologies, a security firm, revealed that top scientists at America's Los Alamos National Laboratory were paid handsome sums of money "to conduct research for the Chinese Communist government, including research with military applications that could threaten U.S. national security."
The aptly named report, "The Los Alamos Club: How the People's Republic of China Recruited Leading Scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory to Advance its Military Programs," explained how a staggering 154 top U.S. scientists took the bait -- large sums of cash, up to $1 million each -- to provide China with high-level U.S. tech and military research.
More than 160 former researchers with the Los Alamos nuclear laboratory in New Mexico have joined Chinese advanced weapons programs over the past several decades, according to a recent study from the private security firm Strider Technologieshttps://t.co/Wy8suHII60

Strider Technologies noted in its report that it was inspired by an older article about U.S. scientists going to work for China.
The intro to the report reads: "The article notes that so many former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists have returned to the People's Republic of China (PRC) and are now working on military research programs that they are referred to as the "Los Alamos Club." However, no specifics about this 'Club,' its membership, or the programs these scientists are working on were reported."
It's important to note that the report isn't alleging any criminal wrongdoing by the U.S. scientists who've been recruited to work for the People's Republic of China, but noted that the situation, which garners very little public attention, is extremely dangerous for national security purposes.
The report essentially accuses China of exploiting the openness of American government and private institutions by sending Chinese academics and scientists abroad, where they are often welcomed with open arms and put in positions that allow them to study cutting-edge technology and research. The Chinese scientists are then brought home to add all they have learned to Beijing’s ever-growing inventory of pilfered technology.
While the issue isn't as pressing or immediate as inflation and other kitchen table political issues, it's definitely a situation that Congress needs to explore sooner than later, before it's too late.
