China got what they wanted

In the wake of the diplomatic debacle and military embarrassment in Afghanistan, we might expect Joe Bidenís first speech to the United Nations as president would be focused on repairing his tattered and torn feckless foreign policy. Quite to the contrary, Biden claimed he had renewed European alliances despite the fact that NATO blamed him for the worst military catastrophe in NATOís history, the British Parliament admonished him for his disastrous retreat from Kabul, and France has recalled their ambassador. Biden was only too happy to appease UN officials, but his primary objective was to reassure China that America did not seek or want another Cold War.

As American credibility craters around the world, Biden is entirely oblivious. To his feeble mind and the fevered minds of leftists, as long as he was reversing any and all Trump policies, everything is just hunky dory. Americans may be suffering and the world is less stable and secure, but China is content. And really, thatís the whole point. China gets what China wants; and their American president has been very helpful.

Contrast Bidenís mealy mouth remarks to President Trumpís bold, courageous address to the United Nations just last year. Trump faced the dragon head on and called them out for all their nefarious activities. Trump supported sanctions on China for their human rights abuses, slapped tariffs on them for global trade depredations, and insisted they comply with environmental regulations for their pervasive polluting. Perhaps most aggravating to China was Trumpís demand that China be held accountable for the damages it unleashed on the world from the coronavirus known as COVID-19.

Just one short year later, China is mocking the USA for its military failure and is preparing to take over our military bases and equipment abandoned by Biden in Afghanistan. President Trump withdrew the USA from the World Health Organization (WHO) for their complete mishandling of the pandemic and blatant lying about its origins and Chinaís culpability, but Biden has rejoined the WHO, to fund their lies and aid their efforts to cover for their Chinese master.

Bidenís craven groveling at the UN was nauseating. China got what they wanted. Instead of being called out for all their global meddling and malfeasance, China was greeted with overtures of appeasement and reconciliation from a pathetic weak Joe Biden. Biden avoided or glossed over the real issues and offered to work with China on the climate change hoax and cooperate with China on the pandemic cover-up.

It was all music to Chinese ears, but it hasnít stopped there. Charged by the Trump administration with violating sanctions against Iran, Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou had those charges dropped by Bidenís DOJ. And Biden is silent as China threatens Taiwan with aggressive military activities. A Chinese attack on Taiwan is imminent on Bidenís watch.

Biden essentially surrendered to China at the UN. Why is Biden beholden to China? Is he afraid? His son, Hunter, has well-known relationships and proven arrangements with China, so is Biden worried about embarrassing conflicts of interest or does he just not want to lose the lucrative connections? Or does China have something on Biden?

The Biden family has demonstrably highly questionable and possibly criminal dealings with China, so perhaps China is extorting Biden by threatening to expose their duplicity. Or does Biden owe a much larger debt to China? Like the presidency?! Of course, itís heresy to say Biden didnít win fairly; and some even scold that itís insanity to suggest Biden stole the election. However, there is ample evidence of cyber-attacks on our election system, voter fraud, and election tampering that has never been fully investigated. Any mention of these election shenanigans is met with derision and often censorship; Americans are not even allowed to ask legitimate questions about all the blatant inconsistencies in election reporting and results.

The Democrat Media Complex howls "craziness" when anyone says the election was not fair and free, but what is crazy is NOT investigating all these credible allegations. What is crazy is not acknowledging the obvious collusion with China. What is crazy is not seeing that Americans did not vote for Bidenís bungling or devastating policies. And finally, what is most insane is ignoring that China is getting everything it wants, while a dithering Biden enjoys the ice cream in the White House.
