Bad Apple

The guy who made your iPhone just cut a deal to strengthen America’s major enemy.

Like many people, I love Apple products. I have an Apple computer, and I’m probably on my seventh or eighth iPhone. It’s an iconic American company.

I was just reading that Apple’s president, Tim Cook, has made a major $275 billion deal to make the country stronger economically, technologically and militarily. If you haven’t heard about this deal, that’s because it was a secret.

But don’t make the mistake of thinking that Mr. Cook is just a really modest guy. The deal was secret because Cook didn’t make this deal with America. He made it with Premier Xi of communist China. That’s right — the guy who made your iPhone just cut a deal to strengthen America’s major enemy.

Tim Cook may claim that Apple is an American company, but most of its manufacturing facilities are in communist China. When the communist Chinese whistle, American CEOs like Cook dance for their masters.

Conservatives have been pro-business for years, and I still am. But we must acknowledge that many of the biggest American corporations, particularly Big Tech, don’t think of themselves as American companies.

Not only are they increasingly “woke” and aggressively opposed to traditional values, they see themselves as “multinational companies.” And if it helps them make more money, they’re willing to empower America’s enemies, including communist China.

Like the old Soviet Union, communist China can’t be trusted. It routinely spies on America and steals our technology. Beijing lied to the world about the coronavirus. They brutally suppress free speech and religious liberty. They are engaged in genocide.

The communist Chinese regime does not share our values. That should be obvious to every American CEO.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris don’t understand the danger posed by communist China. Our next president must, or America is in deep trouble.
