China’s communist dictator Xi Jinping begged the U.S. to “go easy” during a virtual keynote speech at the Davos World Economic Forum, where the world’s most powerful leaders and Greta Thunberg annually gather to engage in a blue-ribbon global session of Group Think for four-days at a ski resort in the Swiss Alps.
Since the organization’s founding in 1971, like all good Western institutions, Davos has become a hollow parody of itself and a grand ritual in hypocrisy as attendees on gas-guzzling private jets preach about the evils of climate change and cardigan sweater-wearing Bill Gates talks about solving poverty in between bites of caviar.
To this feted audience of Davos, Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping warned of a “new Cold War” between China and the U.S., a message reportedly aimed at incoming U.S. President Joe Biden.
Whether or not Joe Biden got the message is another question. Joe Biden barely remembers his own name.
Meanwhile, China is sending warplanes into Taiwanese airspace.
Xi Jinping further warned against that we “will only push the world into division and even more confrontation if we “build small cliques or start a new Cold War, to reject, threaten or intimidate others, to willfully impose … supply disruption or sanctions.”
“We should build an open world economy, uphold the multilateral trading regime, discard discriminatory and exclusionary standards, rules and systems, and takedown barriers to trade, investment, and technological exchanges,” Xi continued.
Xi Jinping also called for a united world to face shared challenges, citing periods in history where “humanity has learned lessons the hard way” – you know, like when China murdered 50 million of its citizens during the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolutions.
After candidate and then President Trump woke up the U.S. foreign policy establishment, America’s leaders in government show signs that they are re-thinking the U.S. approach to China and now understand the historic challenge the free world is facing.
While Republicans and a smattering of Democrats in Congress recognize the China threat, the person at the head of the U.S. government has not proved he has the strength, skill nor intelligence to take on China.
Joe Biden has a record of being soft on China to go along with his record of corruption. It’s possible Biden will unleash World’s Shadiest and Most Unqualified Businessman, Hunter Biden, to swoop into Beijing and cut a sweet surrender deal. Hunter can even bring his crack pipe and hookers so he’s on his A-game.
With China knocking on the door, the question we should be asking ourselves is just which flunkie in the Biden Administration folds to China first in the ongoing power struggle?
The United States remains in the dominant position globally, but Washington D.C. is never short of old politicians who are ready to sell their country down the river.
Just look at former Democratic U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer from California who registered as a foreign agent for a Chinese firm that provides security for the Chinese concentration camps holding Uyghur Muslims. Boxer is literally lobbying for Chinese genocide. Never again?
“What we’ve seen over the last few years is that China’s growing more authoritarian at home and more assertive abroad, and Beijing is now challenging our security, prosperity, and values in significant ways that require a new US approach,” said Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki in response to communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping’s Davos speech.
“China has been willing to do whatever it takes to gain a technological advantage, stealing intellectual property engaging in industrial espionage,” Psaki said. “Our view – the president’s view – is we need to play a better defense, which must include holding China accountable for its unfair and illegal practices and making sure that American technologies aren’t facilitating China’s military buildup.”
Paging former Senator Barbara Boxer of Los Angeles. The Biden Administration can start by securing the homeland and banning corrupt former members of Congress from lobbying the U.S. government on behalf of Chinese firms tied to the communist military and implicated in genocide.
