American Infrastructure Under Attack

Published in Blog on August 02, 2023 by LeRoy E Cossette

America’s doom rests in the vulnerability and susceptibility of our country’s infrastructure.

Because our legislators are failing to do the people's work and keep America and its citizens safe from foreign threats, our infrastructure networks are at risk of being hacked by China.

Chinese malware is believed to be hidden inside American infrastructure networks. The Biden administration has finally grown concerned that China may have already installed malware into networks that control our power grids, communication systems, and water supplies.

Chinese hackers have inserted malicious computer code allowing their military to disrupt our military operations in the event of armed conflict with China or military intervention should China invade Taiwan.

Malicious code would not only affect our military but the lives of Americans as the same infrastructure is used to supply our homes and businesses. Government officials and industry experts who responded to inquiries from The New York Times, reported that Chinese malware issues have been going on for at least a year.

The Biden administration has indicated they are working on efforts to find the code and eliminate it. As can be expected of a broken, inept, federal government, it’s just another case of a dollar short and a day late as the impact will not be fully known until the systems are put under tremendous pressure, as would occur in an armed conflict.

Government officials don’t know the extent of the code's presence in networks but admit the Chinese effort to disrupt our infrastructure appears to be broader than initially thought. Officials advised The Times that searches for the code have focused on areas with military bases – our government allowed a Chinese spy balloon to fly over military bases in early January.

Adam Hodge, National Security Council's acting spokesman stated: "The Biden administration is working relentlessly to defend the United States from any disruptions to our critical infrastructure, including coordinating interagency efforts to protect water systems, pipelines, rail and aviation systems, among others. The president has mandated rigorous cybersecurity practices for the first time."

For the first time?

It is very difficult to understand why, in an age of computerized infrastructures, our government would not have already understood that our enemies would first attack our infrastructure networks.

America needs competent representation in Congress, which is sorely missing. Term limits would allow for new energy, ideas, and action on threats to America.

Convention of States is on a mission to impose term limits and other power restrictions on the federal government. The ineptitude at the federal level is harmful, which is why power must return to the states. To support the movement, sign the petition below.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:
