This needs to be the major theme of the upcoming presidential campaign. The Trump campaign must hit Biden hard for his shameful record of appeasing China, which includes voting against all legislation to tackle China’s expansionist policies, and its unfair trade practices, and its intellectual property theft, all of which have decimated America’s manufacturing sector. In fact, Biden still continues to dismiss China as a threat to the United States.
Shortly after announcing his candidacy for president, Biden sneered: “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man…they can’t even figure out how to deal with the corruption that exists within the system. I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what, they’re not competition for us.” Really Joe? Tell that to the millions of Americans who lost their high paying manufacturing jobs to China. Tell that to the many in America’s intelligence community, who now believe that China is the greatest threat to the United States. Tell that to General Keane, who has referred to China as an “economic predator” who is “undergoing the most rapid military expansion of any nation in the world.”
Joe Biden’s dangerous view of China should terrify every rational American. Joe Biden must never be elected president of the United States.
Joe Biden and the Democrat Party’s Incestuous Relationship with China
By American Thinker, March 18th, 2020:
Desperation has set in among the Politburo in China as their deliberate mishandling and obfuscation of the Chinese Coronavirus outbreak has threatened, and in all likelihood derailed, their grandiose plans for global hegemony. In what can only be described as one of the most ham-handed propaganda efforts in recent memory, China is now trying to deflect blame onto the United States for the Coronavirus outbreak that has been recently categorized as a global pandemic. Further, they are unabashedly claiming that any criticism of their “valiant” efforts to stem the spread of the virus or using the nomenclature of Wuhan Virus or Chinese Coronavirus is racist and xenophobic.
While their attempt to implicate the United States may appear on the surface to be absurd, the reality is that much of it will fall on fertile ground previously tilled and seeded over the past 25 years with vast amounts of money and investments.
An end-product of China’s infiltration of the American media and education establishment is the almost immediate regurgitation of China’s racist and xenophobic argument by the American mainstream media and the predominantly left-wing professional class. Hollywood and the entertainment cabal, already awash in Chinese capital and desperate for access to the Chinese market, has refused to criticize China’s handling of the Coronavirus focusing instead on President Trump. It is almost a certainty that when the pandemic recedes there will be nothing produced that is even remotely critical of China.
The European Union is now China’s largest trading partner and investor. They are beginning to exert increasing influence in nations such as Italy and throughout the continent. Which is why the European Union refused to initiate a travel ban from China during the entirety of the Coronavirus outbreak, leading to Europe now being the global epicenter of the pandemic as well as the source of the bulk of the infections in the United States.
WITH THIS OVERALL BACKDROP THE CHINESE LEADERSHIP IS CONFIDENT THAT THEIR NEAR CLOWNISH PROPAGANDA EFFORTS WILL SUCCEED. THEIR ONLY OBSTACLE IS THE RE-ELECTION OF PRESIDENT TRUMP, WHO IS THE ONLY WORLD LEADER IN THE PAST 25 YEARS TO UNDERSTAND WHAT ANIMATES THE CHINESE AND TO STAND UP TO THEIR INTIMIDATION TACTICS.
The establishment of the Democrat Party believes they have a solution to that obstacle in what appears to be the inevitable nomination of Joe Biden.
Joe Biden, in his days in the Senate, was very partial to China, as he voted against all legislation aimed at curtailing China’s ambitions. In 2007 he opposed the idea of applying any tariffs on China despite their obvious unfair trade practices and theft of proprietary technology that was causing the loss of millions of American manufacturing jobs. America’s dependence on a communist regime for materials and goods, such as pharmaceuticals, continued to grow unabated. However, it was as Vice President that he became wholly enamored with the country and its leadership.
For example, while in China, Biden, in August of 2011, approved of and defended China’s grotesque one-child policy, which brutally used forced abortions to implement the law. (In that same year Biden was given the assignment, by Barack Obama, to be the point man on China due his close personal relationship with Xi Jinping, currently President and General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party.
Joe Biden never missed an opportunity to downplay China’s threat to the United States. In May of 2013, in a commencement speech he assured those concerned the Chinese are “going to eat our lunch” that they had nothing to be concerned about as China had immense problems and an inability to think differently. In May of 2014 Biden described China as a nation incapable of producing innovative products and ideas. Two weeks after declaring his 2020 candidacy, Biden, in Iowa, said,
“China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man…they can’t even figure out how to deal with the corruption that exists within the system. I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what, they’re not competition for us.”
In December 2013, Biden flew to Beijing on Air Force Two with his son Hunter on an official trip, ostensibly to discuss tensions over disputed territories in the East China Sea. Joe and Hunter were ushered into a red-carpet meeting with a delegation of various Chinese officials. Hunter remained with the delegation while his father met with President Xi Jinping. During these meetings Joe Biden struck an extremely conciliatory and friendly tone with the Chinese leadership — much to the dismay of America’s allies in the region.
Ten day later, Hunter’s two-year-old company, Rosemont Seneca, signed an exclusive $1 Billion (later expanded to $1.5 Billion) deal with the state-owned Bank of China, creating an investment fund called Bohai Harvest, with money guaranteed by the Chinese Government. As Peter Schweizer, who was the first to unveil these conflicts of interest, wrote in his book Secret Empires “the Chinese Government was literally funding a business that it co-owned along with the son of one of America’s most powerful decision makers” That is what it looks like to be “compromised by a foreign power.”
Anyone who has dealt with the Chinese Government or an entity controlled by the government can attest that any foreign business transaction with China always has a requisite or implied quid pro quo that oftentimes does not involve monetary considerations. Once entangled in this web it is nearly impossible to escape — as many businesses and nations, throughout Africa and Europe, much to their chagrin, have experienced. It would be naïve to believe that Joe Biden is not embroiled in this labyrinth of expectations and demands.
