Biden changes his tune on China

Joe Biden “has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades,” former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said in 2014.

Truer words ne’er been spoken.

Biden, now president, cautioned this week that China threatens to overtake the United States in terms of economic and geopolitical dominance, a startling admission that comes after he assured voters in 2019 of the exact opposite.

“Last night, I was on the phone for two straight hours with Xi Jinping,” the president told reporters Thursday, referring to his call with the Chinese dictator. “They’re investing billions of dollars in dealing with a whole range of issues that deal with transportation, the environment, and a whole range of other things. So, we just have to step up.”

Biden added, “We don't get moving, they're going to eat our lunch.”

Love him or hate him, one positive thing that can be said about former President Donald Trump is that he has been both correct and consistent about the danger China poses to the U.S. Indeed, Trump has been sounding the alarm since at least the mid-1980s.

Speaking of consistency, compare President Biden to candidate Biden and see if you can spot the difference.

In 2019, during a campaign stop in Iowa City, Biden downplayed concerns that China may surpass the U.S. on the world stage, claiming there’s not a “single solitary” leader who would trade America’s problems for China’s.

“China is going to eat our lunch?” Biden said dismissively. “Come on, man.”

He even used the same idiom!

Biden continued, saying China is too busy dealing with its own problems, including disputes in the “China Sea” (he meant to say the “South China Sea”) and the “mountains ... in the west” (it is still not clear what he meant by this).

“They can’t figure out how they’re going to deal with the corruption that exists within the system,” he said. “I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what? They’re not competition for us.”

Imagine having served as vice president and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and still saying with a straight face that China is “not competition for us.”

Between its efforts to build a global coalition, its shenanigans with currency manipulation, its stranglehold on corrupt international institutions, and its stealing of U.S. national security secrets and intellectual property, all while boasting of a seemingly unlimited supply of slave labor, China is absolutely a fierce and dangerous competitor. The U.S. observes basic human rights and environmental safeguards. China is unencumbered by such moral considerations. Indeed, China just hums right along, pumping out cheap goods at unprecedented rates, all while being the global leader in pollution output. China is hell-bent on global hegemony, and it’s not accountable to the same standards and ethics observed by the U.S. Yet, Biden actually told people as recently as 2019 that China is not “competition for us.”

Only a Washington swamp creature with a comically bad record on foreign policy would say such a wrongheaded thing.

Biden is a 78-year-old man, one with decades of access to national security briefings and intelligence. And he is just now figuring out that China is a few degrees away from “eating our lunch”?

As Biden himself would say: Come on, man.

Gov. DeSantis Tells Biden: “Go Fuck Yourself”


Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday did not mince words on a congested conference call with Biden and federal health authorities who are seeking to prohibit domestic travel to and from the Sunshine State. DeSantis and Biden exchanged salvos of biting barbs after the criminal president said the federal government had authority to “restrict movement” of the people.

Citing concerns over the widespread proliferation of Covid-19 variants, Biden said he might have to prohibit vehicle and air traffic until the CDC and NIH were confident that currently available vaccinations had a proven efficacy against emerging strains, such as highly transmissible anomalies from the United Kingdom, Brazil, and South Africa.

Also on the call were “Deep State” Dr. Fauci and acting CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, both of whom championed Biden’s idea and told DeSantis that surging cases in Florida threatened to undermine the federal government’s expansive efforts to mitigate spread across the country. Florida, Dr. Fauci said, was the epicenter of Covid-19 mutations, and argued that new variants accounted for between 15-35% of new cases in Florida.

Walensky argued on the call that any attempt by DeSantis to resist a federally mandated travel ban would be immoral, selfish, and possibly illegal.

Biden echoed her words, and he berated DeSantis for having left Florida’s economy open during “the dark days of Covid.” Moreover, Biden claimed he had unilateral and constitutional authority to protect the nation’s health from “rogue politicians” acting in contravention of established health guidelines.

DeSantis’s initial reply was brief and blunt: “I will not comply,” he said, and then cited the CDC’s own statistics showing a nationwide decline in active Covid-19 cases.

Florida had arrested the spread of Covid-19, DeSantis argued, and accused Biden of targeting Republican states that supported Donald Trump.

“Florida absolutely will not comply,” DeSantis repeated. “Instituting a travel ban or restriction of movement would be a gross example of federal overreach with no grounding in law or science. We have Covid-19 in check, and you’re trying to exert unlawful authority over our state and its people,” he chided Biden.

Biden then tacitly threatened to withhold federal funding and to deny Florida access to Covid-19 vaccinations.

“C’mon, man, Florida needs our help, and you need vaccines, which are hard to come by, isn’t that right, Dr. Fauci,” Biden said.

The “Deep State” doctor replied in the affirmative, telling DeSantis that he expects the prevalence of the UK variant to double or triple every week to 10 days.

“Governor, do you want to be responsible for reinfecting the nation? Truth is, we don’t even know how effective current vaccines are against the UK strain.”

DeSantis told Dr. Fauci he trusted his own state health authorities over financially incentivized federal officials.

“How much do you stand to earn from these vaccines, Dr. Fauci? And, Joe, if you continue with this course of action, I will authorize the state National Guard to protect the movement of Floridians,” DeSantis said.

“Address me as Mr. President or President Biden,” Biden said.

“I will not, and you can go fuck yourself,” DeSantis said before hanging up.

In closing, it seems obvious that Team Biden favors perpetual lockdowns and a stagnant economy, keeping Americans imprisoned under a de facto state of medical martial law.
