Biden Primed to Fall for China's New Deception: Xi Jinping Announces Plan for More 'Loving' Image of Country

Western Journal

It appears that Chinese President Xi Jinping feels the chill.

Did it finally dawn on him that other countries got a little ruffled after China unleashed a pandemic on the world and then lied about it? They also got a little touchy when China sent an aircraft carrier task group and warplanes to simulate a siege on Taiwan in April, and then forced an overhaul of Hong Kong’s electoral system. Perhaps they’re also upset about the human rights abuses against the Uyghurs and, of course, the theft of their valuable intellectual property.

And about a thousand other reasons.

The Chinese state media outlet Xinhua News Agency reported that Xi would now like to project a “credible, lovable and respectable China” to the world.

In what the South China Morning Post called a “study session of the Politburo,” Xi told senior leaders the country needs to “make friends extensively, unite the majority and continuously expand its circle of friends” in international relations.

The Post acknowledged that “negative perceptions of China [are] at record high levels in many parts of the world” and said the Chinese president hopes “to repair the country’s coronavirus-hit image and win a battle of narratives with the US and its allies.”

The BBC reported that Xi called on the Communist Party news agencies to send the message that the government wanted “nothing but the Chinese people’s happiness and good fortune.”

The article noted that Xi’s remarks amount to a “rare admission of Beijing’s isolation.”

Perhaps the fact that the world has now opened its eyes to the lab leak theory has something to do with it. Because it may be impossible to ever prove that COVID originated from a lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China, without China’s cooperation, Beijing’s refusal to provide that information should prevent any country from trusting them again.

Does Xi believe that the world will instantly put aside the tremendous damage that China has caused in the last year and a half and the belligerence with which it has acted? Unfortunately, as far as the spineless, conflicted President Joe Biden is concerned, he may be right.

It will be hard to forget the defiant and cutting tone of the Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian in the early months of the pandemic. Zhao was behind the conspiracy theory that the virus was brought to Wuhan by the U.S. Army when 300 soldiers traveled there in mid-October 2019 for the Military World Games. On March 12, 2020, Zhao sent the following tweet:

Or the unbelievably undiplomatic treatment of U.S. diplomats at the March meeting in Alaska by the Chinese Director of the Office of the Central Commission for Foreign Affairs Yang Jiechi.

Or top Chinese General Xu Qiliang’s refusal to acknowledge Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s three attempts to contact him in May.

The international friendships Xi claims to seek should only be possible after some form of amends. Perhaps taking some responsibility the pandemic, for starters.

However, some nations, dependent on China for trade, may accept his olive branch. Other nations, with weak, possibly compromised leaders like Joe Biden might also fall in line.

This is precisely the type of situation that many of us had feared prior to the election. We were concerned that Biden’s son, Hunter, his brother, James, and possibly his
Biden’s own past business dealings with China would prevent him from putting America’s interests first, making him a national security risk.

The months since Jan. 20, in which Biden and his administration have been humiliated by a Chinese government that in all likelihood is responsible for a pandemic that killed millions worldwide and destroyed the global economy, make it all too obvious that Biden is dependent on good relations with China to bolster what passes for foreign policy by the world’s only superpower.

With a record like that in the face of almost undisguised hostility, he’s primed to fall for any show of friendship from the Beijing dictatorship, and primed to fail on behalf of himself and his country.

The United States, and the world, deserve better.

Tyranny: Concerned Parents Arrested After School Board Cuts Off Comments on Trans, CRT Policies

Two Virginia parents protesting critical race theory and transgender policy proposals at their children’s schools were arrested Tuesday during a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board. The public comment session was held so parents could voice their concerns over the teaching of CRT as well as a new policy on “transgender and gender-expansive students.” Instead, the board ended the meeting midway and two parents were arrested. Two arrests made at the Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting after it was declared an unlawful assembly and some parents here to protest against critical race theory and a transgender policy refused to leave right away #CriticalRaceTheory pic.twitter.com/dsZDrqJ0Gp — Gabriella Borter (@gabriellaborter) June 22, 2021 A total of 259 people had signed up to offer public comments, but the meeting was shut down after just 51 had spoken, according to Fox News. Ian Prior, a father of two students and a spokesman for the parent advocacy group Fight for Schools, slammed the board for refusing to allow parents to have a say in how their children are educated on controversial topics such as critical race theory and transgenderism. Prior told Fox News that it’s imperative for parents to “get a seat at the table” to help shape what their children learn in the classroom. Otherwise, schools become vehicles for the mass brainwashing of children with destructive left-wing propaganda. https://youtu.be/AntKpOTq0Fc The brouhaha at the Loudoun County School Board meeting came after former Republican state Sen. Dick Black slammed the board for suspending teacher Tanner Cross in May for stating at a school board meeting that he doesn’t believe “a biological boy can be a girl and vice-versa.” Two weeks ago, a judge ordered Cross’ school to reinstate him, saying his statements were constitutionally protected free speech under the First Amendment.

Confirmed: Disguised Leftists Infiltrated Trump Crowd on Jan. 6, Said They Told FBI How to Infiltrate MAGA

Recently released videos prove what conservatives have been saying for months now: Trump supporters were not the only ones at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Two leftists infiltrated the Jan. 6 mob that stormed the Capitol and later said they told the FBI how to “infiltrate Trump rallies.” The two men are Walter Masterson and Peter Scattini and a quick look skim through their respective Twitter feeds shows that they are, indeed, leftists. It’s been stoked by the media & by the president. It goes beyond institutional distrust & disgust. So many are painting these protestors as a monolith, when in reality it was an amalgam of families, business owners & anarchists who believed they were fighting for “their” America — Peter Scattini (@jpscattini) January 7, 2021 COVID Nurse at the MAGA Rally does not believe in wearing a mask. pic.twitter.com/1SvKyFpPCf — Walter Masterson (@waltermasterson) December 13, 2020 Multiple videos on Scattini’s YouTube channel show him and Masterson — disguised as reporters from One America News Network — asking questions to a number of Trump supporters outside the Capitol on Jan. 6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6uCSMnHO7w&t=1556s An additional video blog posted on Feb. 17 features Scattini explaining how FBI agents approached the two men after their Jan. 6 stunt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WajJZZfoLXg “They introduced themselves as two agents of the FBI and one officer of the NYPD and asked if they could come inside and, of course, we said yes,” Scattini said. “We talked to them for about an hour, we are not in any trouble, but that was super weird.” “Walter is giving them tips on how to infiltrate Trump rallies.” This lines up with a recent assertion made by Fox News personality Tucker Carlson that the FBI had agents on the inside during the Jan. 6 incursion. “Strangely, some of the key people who…
