"Middle-Class Joe had a rare opportunity to confront the greatest threat to American workers – the CCP's exploitative trading practices and job poaching ad infinitum – and he failed. Miserably.
In reality, America has lost nearly 4 million jobs from China's predatory trading practices in under 20 years, leaving factories and manufacturers reeling from the beltway's complicity in CCP-spearheaded outsourcing. And the toll of this isn't purely economic: 'deaths of despair' have risen among the American working class, inextricably linked to China siphoning their jobs and livelihoods."
"In 2000, Mr. Biden voted for the U.S.-China Trade Relations Act that gave China normal trade status. Within three years of the bills passing, America lost its last penicillin plant, aspirin factory and vitamin C facility, according to Ms. Gibson. Politicians, like Mr. Biden at the time, were too naive to see the national security threat global supply chains imposed, and today still are.
“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,” Mr. Biden said cavalierly on the campaign trail last year."
“Chinese business records accessed Tuesday show that Hunter Biden is still listed as a member of BHR’s board of directors — six months after he pledged to relinquish the position.
Chinese business records the DCNF accessed Tuesday still name Hunter Biden as a director of BHR. He also retains a 10% equity stake in BHR through his company, Skaneateles LLC, business records for the Chinese private equity firm show.”
"Hunter Biden disembarked from Air Force Two in Beijing alongside his father, ahead of a series of meetings between the vice president and several high-ranking members of China's ruling party. Upon his departure, Joe Biden called Chinese President Xi Jinping a "good friend."
Within weeks of that visit, Hunter Biden was doing business there, as a participant in a firm called Bohai Harvest RST. The corporation formed a novel Chinese-American investment partnership that involved such Chinese state-owned firms as the Bank of China. Reports at the time said they sought to raise $1.5 billion.
In response to questions from ABC News, Hunter Biden maintained that he and his father never talked about his overseas ventures."
"In 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Less than two weeks later, Hunter Biden’s firm inked a $1 billion private equity deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China. The deal was later expanded to $1.5 billion. In short, the Chinese government funded a business that it co-owned along with the son of a sitting vice president. This business deal, coupled with Biden's weak stance on Chinese trade, points to Biden's concerning level of comfort with the competitor nation."
Since 1979, Joe Biden has been a key supporter and enabler of Communist China; a fact he often brags about and highlights in interviews and speeches, seemingly oblivious to the economic damage his positions have inflicted on America and American Workers.
“On my first visit to China, which was more than 30 years ago when I was a young United States senator in 1979, I was with the first delegation of congressional leaders to visit China after normalization. We had several days of business with then Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping. It was a very different country then, but what was absolutely clear to me was that China was on the cusp of a remarkable transformation....
Let me be clear -- let me be clear: I believed in 1979 and said so and I believe now that a rising China is a positive development, not only for the people of China but for the United States and the world as a whole.”
"It’s wrong to pretend that China isn’t one of our major economic competitors." Bernie Sanders rarely finds himself on the side of common sense, but his quote above accurately rebukes Biden for his weak stance on China. Stating clearly in a rally that "They [China] are not our competition," Beijing Biden underscored his weakness on trade. Biden based his argument mostly on China's own inefficiencies, noting "They can’t figure out how they’re going to deal with the corruption that exists within the system." Perhaps he is referring to the deals their state-sponsored companies have cut with his son's companies.
Biden’s tendency to advocate for China’s economic growth and power is a theme he returns to time and again during his political career. In debates, speeches, and in policy; we find Joe Biden continuing his ruinous quest to strengthen China…
“Biden has always supported expanded trade with China. In 2000, he voted to approve Permanent Normal Trade Relations with China. In a presidential debate in 2007, when asked, “Would you call for tariffs to protect American consumers from unsafe products from China? Are you willing to go there?” Biden answered, “I’m not. No, I’m not willing to go there. You don’t need to start a tariff war. All you have to do is enforce the law. Enforce the law...
In a 2012 speech alongside then-Vice President Xi Jinping, he declared, “I believe that a rising China is a positive development — not only for China but also for the United States and the world. It will fuel economic growth and prosperity, and a rising China will bring to the fore a new partner with whom we can have help meeting the global challenges we all face.”
