Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Hey, remember that time when Barack Hussein Obama told us that Russia wasn’t our most dangerous adversary? – Yeah, good times, huh? That was in a 2012 debate with Mitt Romney. Boy, the Democrats sure have changed their tune since then, huh? Well, except when it comes to Russian protection of the socialist/fascist dictator who is starving Venezuela – then, the Russkies are just fine.
Anyway, this all comes to mind in the context of Creepy Uncle Joe Biden, who the fake news media says yesterday told an audience that China is suddenly “good folks, folks” and “they’re not competition for us.” Or did he? Watch this video clip and decide for yourselves:
For those of you who still like to read, here is the transcript. Pay particular attention to that last paragraph, which I have faithfully transcribed verbatim, exactly as old Mushmouth here said it:
“Look at who we are. I know, I’ve met virtually every major world leader in my wole as vice president and as Foreign Relations Chairman over the last 30 years, and that’s not hyperbole. I don’t know a single, solitary one who would not change places with the problems the prezden of the United States has vs. the problems they have.
“China is going to eat our lunch? C’mon, man. They can’t even figger out how to deal with th-th-th-they with the fact that they have this great division between the China by the sea and the mountains in the east. I mean in the west. They can’t figger out how they’re gonna deal with the corruption in the system. I, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what? They’re not a c…th-th-they’re not a, they’re competition for us.”
The fake news media has done its DNC duty and cleaned all that mush up to say this:
“China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man. They’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what? They’re not competition for us.”
Neat trick, huh?
Now, I think that’s probably what the man who’s had more facial and teeth work done than Cher intended to finally mumble out of his mouth, but no matter how many times I watch that clip, I can’t quite get him all the way to saying it. The word “not” is just not in that final sentence.
In any event, it’s important to remember that, where both Russia and China are concerned, the Democrat/media joint posture towards them is entirely situational. Barack Obama his own self had a definite inferiority complex towards Vladimir Putin, could barely look the man in the face whenever they were in a room together, so he felt the need to puff out his chest and engage in big talk about him and his country whenever he was safely back in the United States.
So, when hapless Mitt Romney correctly identified Russia as a major U.S. adversary during that debate, Obama felt the personal need to badmouth and joke about that country. Since 2016, of course, the Democrats and fake news media have portrayed Russia as the worst country on earth that is trying to take over the United States by creating fake accounts on Twitter and Facebook. It’s all situational, you see.
Where China’s concerned, we need to keep in mind that Obama and Joe Biden were thrilled to death to let that country engage in heinously-unfair trade practices and rob our country of millions of jobs throughout their eight years in office, because those lost jobs were mainly in what the Democrats/media regard as the “old” economy. You know, the union jobs in manufacturing, steel, textiles and other hard product industries. Obama/Biden wanted all those chronically-unemployed workers to – in Obama’s famous words now banned by Twitter – “learn to code” as the solution to their problems.
If China were still dominating America in trade policy today in the same way it did during Biden’s 8 years as vice president, you can be sure he’d be pounding on that country as our mortal enemy and lambasting President Trump for failing to do anything about it.
But, you see, President Trump is doing something about it because, unlike Obama and Biden, he actually cares about American workers and American jobs. He’s slapped tariffs on a wide array of Chinese goods, a move that has helped to create hundreds of thousands of new, high-paying “old economy” union and non-union jobs back here in America, for Americans, and is about to complete negotiations on a very favorable trade deal with that country.
So, the situation being what it is, Biden feels the need to make like all of that is no big deal, and that China – which most economists believe will in fact surpass the U.S. economy’s size within the next decade – is not an adversary, not “competition” for us at all.
Maybe the real reason why Biden couldn’t quite ever get that out of his mouth is because he knows what a whopping lie it truly is. But that would presume that Joe Biden is that rarest of rare Democrat politicians: A man with an actual conscience, and I’m frankly still not sure that’s even possible for a guy who’s been a creature of DC politics for 45 years now.
That is all.
