Pelosi Drags Feet on Bill to Stop Communist Espionage

House Democrats are blocking a bill that will curtail the influence of the Chinese-government-funded Confucius Institute, stymying bipartisan legislation that unanimously passed in the Senate.

Despite bipartisan support in the upper chamber, House Democrats—including a cosponsor for the bill—voted against placing the CONFUCIUS Act on the agenda in late July, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) has yet to announce plans to place the bill on the floor. If passed, the legislation would require all federally funded universities with Confucius Institutes to assume “full managerial control” of the institutes, a move that would limit the Chinese government’s influence over the program.

Frustrated by the lack of action, congressional Republicans are blaming Pelosi for blocking debate for the bill, criticizing the House speaker for putting politics over national security.

“I regret that Speaker Pelosi has still not scheduled the CONFUCIUS Act for a vote,” said Rules Committee Ranking Member Tom Cole, who introduced the July vote. “This isn’t about politics. It’s about holding China accountable, and Speaker Pelosi clearly hasn’t made that a priority.”

The Dems, their allies, and mainstream media/big tech sites ALL back the Chinese Communist Party, not their own country, the United States of America. Such people should not be elected officials inside our government and those sites should be reporting real news, the truth and represent American interests, not Chinese propaganda.

The Democrats are on Soros payroll. Read the goals of Soros “Open Borders” foundation? “NO Governments, Borders, or Religions, with the ‘Elite Billionaires’ in TOTAL CONTROL!”. Don’t believe it? Then check this out. Chelsea Clinton married Soros nephew, in his New York home. Bill and Hillary spent the weekend there. The Clinton Foundation paid for the wedding! I believe Soros “OWNS” the Clinton’s, and the Dems.

agent Pelousy has to stand by the Biden crime family and support the commies. She is probably also on the take. Time to get smart. These commie footholds in our universities are used for spying on us and spreading their garbage manifesto.

Why is Pelosi still in her position???
She’s clearly anti American except where her family is concerned. God needs to change her heart or have her removed & made to pay back all the money she’s stole from SS & other organizations.
