On Monday November 14 in Bali, Indonesia, Joe Biden met with President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). According to the White House press release, “the two leaders spoke candidly about their respective priorities and intentions across a range of issues,” including “transnational challenges such as climate change, global macroeconomic stability including debt relief, health security, and global food security” and so forth.
As Charlie Spierling noted, in their opening remarks, Biden and Xi failed to mention “the coronavirus pandemic that came from China.” This lapse comes in the wake of mounting evidence that the pandemic originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. That lab was funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci to conduct dangerous gain of function research that makes viruses more lethal and transmissible.
“Everyone had to agree to the narrative” enforced by Fauci, former CDC director Dr. Redfield recently revealed. In early 2020, CDC official Dr. Nancy Messonnier even complimented China on its handling of the pandemic. On Monday, former State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus called out Biden for failing to bring it up.
“Why are we not talking about fentanyl — the chemical precursors that go from China to Mexico — the number one killer of young people? Why aren’t we talking about the origins of COVID-19?” Ortagus asked. “Are we just going to let them get away with this?”
The White House claimed Biden “raised concerns about PRC practices in Xinjiang, Tibet, and Hong Kong, and human rights more broadly.” But as Andrew Thornebrooke noted at The Epoch Times, “the Chinese Communist Party’s readout of the meeting did not mention any discussion of human rights.”
Biden wants to define the U.S. relationship with China in purely economic terms, rather than a strategic competition for control of the future. As Brandon Weichet notes, “In Biden, Beijing has a president who has spent his entire career championing closer U.S. ties with the CCP.” As the record shows, that is hardly a stretch.
In November 1989, less than six months after the Tiananmen Square massacre, Sen. Biden voted against strong sanctions on Communist China. In 1998, with the United States again poised to enact sanctions, Biden was part of a group of 10 senators opposed to the measures. “We are all for human rights,” the senators’ letter read, but human rights were to be achieved “through engagement.”
In May 2011, Biden said he believed that “protecting fundamental rights and freedoms such as those enshrined in China’s international commitments as well as in China’s own constitution is the best way to promote long term stability and prosperity—of any society.” The vice president didn’t specify the “fundamental rights and freedoms” in China’s constitution, and his statement offered no criticism of the Communist regime.
According to The Black Book of Communism, published in 1997, China’s Communist regime is responsible for more than 60 million deaths. Biden shows no familiarity with the book, and in 2000 the Delaware Democrat, then chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, supported China’s admission to the World Trade Organization (WTO).
The man most responsible for helping vice president Biden “get China” was Tom Donilon, a veteran of the Carter White House and advisor to Biden his first presidential run in 1988. In a June, 2013, speech to the Asia Society, Donilon avoided the human rights issue and contended that “a deeper U.S.-China military-to-military dialogue is central to addressing many of the sources of insecurity and potential competition between us.” (emphasis added)
Donilon, who served as National Security advisor during the Obama administration, is the likely source for Joe Biden’s claim that the Chinese Communists are “not bad folks,” and “not competition for us.” By all indications, China has now “got Biden,” who is also compromised through the business dealings of son Hunter.
Xi Jinping now controls the Chinese Communist Party “without serious challenge,” Mark Lewis explains, and is now unquestionably “the most dangerous man on earth,” a veritable reincarnation of Chairman Mao. In Joe Biden, Xi Jinping sees weakness incarnate.
On Saturday, at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in Phnom Penh, Biden referred to Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen as the “prime minister of Colombia.” During a press conference, Biden admitted his handlers had limited the number of questions to four.
Ben Owen called the Indonesia meeting Biden’s “statement of support of – and complicity with – the cultural revolution and the mass murder of 70 million Chinese people.” Owen’s tweet linked to footage of Biden wearing what looks like CCP garb.
As Weichert sees it, Xi Jinping “will view Biden’s actions for what they truly are: bootlicking intended to stave off the inevitable Chinese assault. Rather than being deterred from future hostilities, Xi will likely be more aggressive, since American weakness is provocative.”
That weakness has Mark Lewis wondering if the most dangerous man in the world could be Joe Biden, who is often uncertain of his location and unable to identify the current century. As the Delaware Democrat repeatedly confirms, “stupidity in power is absolutely horrifying.”
