Joe Biden, Communist China, and Stunningly Poor Judgement

Newly re-purposed as the leading Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden stumbled out of the gate, not kissing the wrong people on the head, but in assessing China.  Naïve – dangerously naïve – is the only word for it.

Biden just assessed Communist China this way: “China’s going to eat our lunch?  Come on man,” adding “you know, they’re not bad folks, folks … guess what, they’re not competition for us.”  Biden stunningly diminished – in one breath – the full economic, military and moral threats posed by China, then skipped on to other topics.

With slightly more circumspection – and focus on China’s economic and military ambitions, as well as moral depravity – let’s review the bidding.  Here are the facts:

Communist China has threatened neighbors and international shipping by building and militarizing “artificial islands” in the South China Sea, is modernizing military forces at breakneck speed, tested space weapons to kill communications and early warning satellites, disavows freedoms of nationalist China, and has begun building infrastructure for military expansion globally.

Communist China has pursued global hacking by militarizing the world’s largest supercomputers, and in June 2015 hacked the US Office of Personnel Management under President Obama and stole 21.5 million personnel records on the most highly cleared people in the US government. 

Communist China is the source of virtually all the fentanyl that comes into the United States, and kills young Americans daily across the country, and in ever larger numbers.  Roughly 600 Chinese producers turn out most of the drug.

On the economic side, Communist China is the world’s second largest economy.  Nevertheless, it ritually violates norms of the World Trade Organization, compels transfer of intellectual property and technology from many transacting business in the country, has been a historic currency manipulator, and violates human rights with impunity, even as it seeks credit for building out so-called “Belt and Road” infrastructure projects around the world.  Even in these countries, new infrastructure often comes at the price of economic control over national interests. 

For moral depravity, just a few examples will serve.  Communist China’s one-child policy, based on 2008 data, was killing 13 million children a year, either through infanticide or late-term sex-selection abortions, on top of ten million abortions with pills.  The goal was, often, to end the life of a little girl.  Boys are viewed as more valuable. 

To this add Communist China’s imprisonment of more than one million non-violent Muslims in the northwest, in prison-like camps for “reeducation” to be atheistic Communists.  Religious freedom has no place in China, as Christians are also systematically persecuted.  

Nor are dissidents or property crimes much tolerated.  Communist China executes more than 2,400 of its own citizens annually, no appeal and no balanced trials – according to Amnesty International.  That is, by the way, more than all the rest of the world combined.

So, for a moment, reflect on Joe Biden’s words: “Not bad folks …” Right, just trust them with your life – and our country, right?   Maybe not.  But then Mr. Biden’s judgement has never been particularly good – and maybe that is the real point.

Joe Biden celebrated the 1979 take-over of Iran by the Ayatollahs, who displaced a longtime American ally, saying it would improve human rights.  He opposed the Reagan defense build-up in the 1980s, which collapsed the Soviet Union.  Specifically, he opposed the B-1 and B-2 stealth technology and bombers, MX missile, and Reagan’s defense programs across the globe.

Notably Robert Gates, former CIA Director under George HW Bush, Secretary of Defense under George W Bush and Obama, wrote that Joe Biden has been “wrong on every major foreign policy and national security issue for the past four decades.”  That about sums it up. 

At least he is consistent, right? Biden wanted to break-up Iraq, opposed the military raid on bin Laden, and supported the misconceived nuclear deal that put planeloads of cash in the hands of Iran for promoting terrorism – and got nothing in return.   He mocked Mitt Romney’s warnings about Russia as a foe, only to criticize Trump’s attempts to create dialogue with this nuclear adversary.

More broadly, Biden has remained weak on judgement for decades.  He has never held a private sector job, never had executive leadership, and never made a payroll.  As Senator and Vice President, American taxpayers disgorged 8.3 million dollars to support his lifestyle – this man of the people.  Most Americans would have happily traded places for a tenth of that largess.

On judgement, Biden was caught for plagiarism in law school, an omen.  In 1985, used a speech by Hubert Humphrey without credit and again in 1986.  In 1987, without giving credit to Robert Kennedy, he did it again.  Later in 1987, he adopted a speech by British Labor Leader Neil Kinnock, even making Kinnock’s family history his own – after which he dropped out of that presidential race. 

So, let’s cut to the chase.  Communist China is not led by “good folks,” and Mr. Biden is not a man of particularly good judgement.  He is friendly, occasionally humorous, but often dangerously naïve.  And speaking candidly, there is nothing funny about that.

Just what we need, another zerobama. If Joe had a brain, he still wouldn’t be smart. Move to China, Joe, since they are so friendly and, like zerobama, you hate America. Wouldn’t it be nice if all our America hating politicians would move to China and Russia?

On the one hand, I hope the democrats run Biden. He is such an obvious idiot. On the other hand, it is not clear to me that the American people perceive his lack of abilities. After all. We’ve got a growing list of idiots serving in high offices. Pelosi, Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and Tlaib just to name a few. Admittedly, some are not idiots. They are just enemies of America. I am not sure which is worse.

Last Fall I delivered a local presentation on U.S. Global Engagement and the Military, part of the Great Decision lecture series sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association (look up this organization–they put out some interesting information). I conducted some pretty in-depth research for my presentation. Of all the research I did, I read two books that were particularly enlightening. They were The Hundred Year Marathon: China’s Secret Strategy to Replace America as the Global Superpower, by Michael Pillsbury (2015); and Destined For War: Can America and China Escape Thucydides Trap?, by Graham Allison (2017). Folks, please read these two books (or at least go on line and watch some You Tube interviews with these two men)…you will be shocked at what China is planning on doing. China isn’t even trying to hide their intentions anymore. They will, at best, always be a hostile competitor (the degree of hostility may fluctuate), and at worst an open enemy of the U.S., both economically and militarily. Two things for certain…1) as long as they maintain their current form of government, they will NEVER be a friend, and 2) they are our #1 long-term threat. What Biden said about China should alone be enough to show he is unfit to lead this country. Like the rest of the Dems, he’s a class act fool.
PS: Both these authors are well known experts in their fields. They ARE NOT quacks!

Demo-RATS backing of this IDIOT is pure PROOF that they are the most dangerous social liberal group to this nation. They are POWER HUNGRY, GREEDY, and are willing to destroy our GREAT country to get CONTROL. They are also self destructive by pushing the killer muslim islamic invasion of our country by FIGHTING AND NOT SUPPORTING THE BUILDING OF A WALL ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER AND CONSTANTLY UNDERMINING THE PRESENTS EFFORT TO STOP PEOPLE FROM TERRORIST COUNTRIES FROM COMING INTO THIS COUNTRY. “WAKE UP AMERICA” before it is too late!

Biden is a traitor and learned well from his mentor, Imam Obama. Educate yourselves people. This guy is worse than the Chinese and Russian regimes combined. He speaks with a forked tongue. Beware.

He dismissed it because of more than just bad judgement. His son Hunter (of the Ukraine debacle) is deeply invested in China’s mass surveillance program. This guy is not only creepy and dopey…he’s extremely corrupt. Should he become the DNC’s candidate in 2020, he must be exposed! Actually, he should be exposed (not the way he likes to)…period.

Is there a way to impeach congress members! As far as I can tell, those who want impeachment of President Trump should be looking much closer to home. Texans were able to defeat Beto but the margin was too close for comfort! And Texas has had the economy to attract thousands of Californians who have apparently brought their socialist attitudes with them. And we are required to let them vote here. The same of true with citizens coming here from the north. There was a time when they were called Yankees. They have come to a state with no state income tax yet they want to impose the same economy here that they have fled from. Apparently, there is no easy cure for stupid.

Biden carries heavy baggage. President Trump carries private heavy baggage but has proven accomplishments. Big positive difference from Biden and the rest of the candidates. Trump 2020!!

Biden is also astonishingly corrupt, as his machinations in the Ukraine demonstrate. Of course, he does get a free ride from the so-called “journalists” in the media. I was a Senate staffer during some of Biden’s early years in the Senate; he was a dope then, too.

Here we go again! More Obama era appeasements of our known and acknowledged rivals. He was part of the same administration that snickered when told that Russia was a threat to our security.

When he is not mauling women he continues to spew stupidity.

We can only hope he is the Dems. nominee. Trump (for all of his personal faults!) will slaughter him in the next election!

Joe Biden is proof that anyone with less than an I.Q. of 85, can succeed in the arena of politics. How he manages to put one foot ahead of the other while walking, is amazing.

People laugh at his gaffes, and say that that is just good old Joe exaggerating a little bit. Wrong! A gaff is a misstatement due to ignorance, or faulty information. Every time that Joe gives a speech, he makes at least one statement that is profoundly obtuse. Worse, he never corrects these “gaffs” when people point out his blunders. It’s not that he is arrogant in the commonly understood sense, it’s that he is unable to comprehend that first, that he goofed up, and second that he lacks the intelligence to grasp why the Biden apologists are apologizing for him. This failing is obvious because he makes the same misstatements over and over.

It’s eerie that Biden has the same urge to hug other people that those who suffer from the trisomy 21 condition, have. He may not be the deviate that most think he is, he might just be a down syndrome sufferer.

The real question about Joe Biden? How stupid are the voters who supported this unfortunate’s career path over the past decades?

Biden is a typical career, ride the gravy train politician. He tries to act like he’s a regular guy next door type, but he never was! At this point, I believe he is senile and in early stages of dementia. Even if I am wrong, he is dangerous and should not be running for POTUS!

Biden has never been right about anything concerning foreign policy, even though many years on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee. If Sleepy Joe becomes President he will be sleeping in his rocking chair in the rose garden while the “grand kids” ( socialist democrats and lacky progressive republicans) run the country into the ground and the neighbors walk into the house through unlocked doors and steal the silverware. In he end , the grand kids will burn down the house the neighbors will steal our wealth. The country will break up and become a series of independent states all fighting with each other. The world will then have to figure out who will fund their progressive dream. Perhaps Soros and his buddies????

Hey, we got Sleepy, Creepy, Snake Eyes, Azzgrabbing uncle Joe Biden blathering on here. You were expecting some kind of smart guy standing up for the democrats? It would be fun for him to be the final democrat standing against President Trump, because he would be shredded every time they debated, or Joe stuck his foot in his mouth, yet again as with this incredibly stupid statement.
But the danger is, the democrats are indeed stupid enough to vote for Joe the Pedo, just because he’s a democrat and they hate Trump so badly, they would vote for the first stray dog that was on the ticket. So, the types that vote for Nutty Nancy, Slimy Adam Schitt, Batty Bernie, and Creepy uncle Joe would be out there. And this time they’ve learned what they need to do to gin up enough faked votes to counteract the electoral college so Trump might not win again.

Biden doesn’t feel bad about China because they gave his baby boy a trillion dollar deal. Creepy Joe probably doesn’t feel bad about the Ukrainians who also poured money into baby boy’s pockets!

Seems quite plausible that Gropin’ Joe’s wacko assessment of China is a definite sign that he is in the intermediate stages of some type of dementia. Add Crazy Nancy, AOC, Omar and Tlaib to that list, and we have major problems in River City. Do the “Progressives” (once called “Democrats”) really think they can run Trump out of office with such a coterie of circus clowns and carney geeks who show no common sense? Evidently so, and I hope they keep producing more of them to ensure that Trump will win in 2020! I thought the typical American voter was smart enough to know history, facts and use logic when placing their future on such idiots. I was wrong!

Biden is so out of touch with reality, and he’s the Democratic leader? I heard him speak at a commencement 19 years ago and he rambled on for almost a half-hour about what I don’t know, when he was finished speaking we just looked at each other and asked what did he say? Can’t wait for the debates!?

When I was a teen, I read books by Pearl S. Buck, THE GOOD EARTH. Her father was a missionary in China. Pearl was born and bred there. One day, I saw her on a talk show and I remember one line she said. “The Chinese make good friends, but they are frightful enemies.” She should know better than we do. America, please listen to someone who knows more than we do. God bless America. May America never fall or fail.

Drunk oluncle Joe...what a gimp. Hussein odumba is a traitor and a mooslim terrorist, but at least he knew to keep Biden quiet so the stupid didnt show. No way the DNC handlers can keep a muzzle on that idiot if he is the demon-crat candidate for president. No matter though, I just don`t see anyone beating President Trump.

He’s down playing China, Why? Biden got his son Hunter, who has NO business experience, a billion dollar funding from China to back a business. Pay attention to the NEWS ( not the cooked media) this story is just starting to come out. Hunter Biden has ties to the Pro Russian Ukrainian government. Biden is as crooked as a snake crossing a hot road!!!!

Nice summation of a man who has never “worked” in the private sector but yet has made a few million dollars off the taxpayers. His comments stem from ignorance and stupidity and he doesn’t even qualify for the DEMOCRAT nomination! He might be humorous at times but this is certainly not funny at all. If Biden is the “best” the dems have, than this is really a sad situation for the U.S.
