If President Trump made one thing very clear, it was his position on China. He sees them with 20/20 vision and has always been willing to call them out for their indiscretions. The CCP (Chinese Communist Party) has no respect for the rule of law, for basic human rights, or for democracy. This doesn’t sit well with people who care about such things.
Many believe Trump was one of the few American leaders to truly recognize the nature of the CCP and to see the threat it poses to the American way of life. He spent his term doing all he could to protect us from their ever-growing assertive actions and refused to turn a blind eye to their conduct. He also didn’t hold back when it came to his criticism.
Biden, on the other hand, seems to be a bit blurry on his China policy. In fact, many would say that he’s more interested in cozying up to the Chinese than playing hard-ball with them. Instead of calling them “the central threat of our times” (as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did, he prefers to call them a “competitor.”
Some competitor. China has been known to steal upwards of $500 billion worth of U.S. IP each year, according to Gordon Chang, (Washington Watch).
Still, Biden seem to mind all of that. Many of his initial EOs (Executive Orders) benefitted China. They also compromised the U.S. and put Americans at risk. Chang had this to say about the difference between Trump’s approach and Biden’s:
“President Trump, with an executive order, barred China from supplying equipment to our electricity grid. In other words, that prevents China from committing sabotage. And that’s not a theoretical concern when it comes to the grid. Yet Biden, in an executive order, repealed that Trump era protection.” (Family Research Council)
Peter Schweizer, a conservative author and Breitbart News contributor, spoke to Fox News about China’s influence over the U.S. government. He called it “dangerous.” He pointed to the reappointment of Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) to the House Intelligence Committee as proof. Swallwell was involved with a Chinese spy.
“If you’re going to have a competition with the United States, why not try to effectively decapitate part of the leadership by co-opting them?” Schweizer asked. “You can co-opt them in the old-fashioned Cold War ways of, you know, sexual honey traps, so to speak; you can also do it by giving sweetheart commercial deals by enriching their families, and China has more money to do that than the Soviet Union ever did.”
In an Epoch Times article titled “Beware of the China Appeasement Crisis Looming in the US” contributor Cheng Xiaonong had this to say:
One of the reasons the CCP doesn’t fear the United States is that there are a large number of influential figures, similar to the fifth column, inside the Democratic Party’s circle of influence. They try to manipulate U.S. policy toward China, downplay the CCP’s threat to U.S. national security, and shape U.S. policies in a manner that favors the CCP.
This “political correctness” faction has good feelings toward Marxism, the Communist Party, and Mao Zedong. So, they naturally dislike any actions that attack or suppress the CCP. Although this faction differs in their goals and motives from the appeasement under Chamberlain in Britain, the effects of their actions are very similar. (Epoch Times)
Like Mike Pompeo, I also happen to believe China is “the central threat of our times.” The CCP has engaged in countless human rights violations and covered up the role they played in exposing the world to COVID-19.
Pompeo took a particularly strong stance against China on the day before Trump left office. He called their government abuses of Uyghur Muslims genocide.
I agree. They have no respect for human life. If you’ve ever delved into their organ transplant history you know that they frequently take the lives of prisoners of the state so that they can harvest their organs to sell to the rest of the unsuspecting world.
We know what they are capable of.
They are not to be trusted.
And anyone who’s willing to bed down with them shouldn’t be trusted, either.
