The current state of our congressional stagnation is not only causing a grand headache for We The People, but it’s also apparently making us the laughing stock of the world.
President Joe Biden has been simply unable to move his campaigned-on agenda forward thanks to a razor thin majority in Congress that is being magnified by the radical left’s insistence on pushing the nation ever further into the pits of progressivism. The moderate Democrats, a group that Biden worked diligently to appeal to during the 2020 election, just cannot appease “the squad” and others, which has effectively erased any sort of advantage that the left has had.
And if you think Beijing hadn’t noticed the dysfunction, you’d be dead wrong.
Biden spoke at the opening of the COP26 U.N. climate summit on Monday, stressing the need for “action and solidarity” while also using the moment to “apologize” for the fact “the U.S., under the last administration,” pulled out of the Paris accord.Trending:
“I guess I shouldn’t apologize, but I do apologize for the fact that the United States under the last administration pulled out of the Paris agreement. That kind of put us behind the eight ball a bit,” Biden said.
That’s when China pounced.
Beijing-backed news outlet the Global Times published a piece the following day that ridiculed Biden’s “noble” apology. The report highlighted the discord between American voters, noting some comments online from “netizens” who “cannot wait until 2024 when the Republican Party, or even Donald Trump himself, apologizes for Biden’s apology.”
The report attempts to highlight the more controversial side of the climate change discussion in the U.S. and played up the differences between Biden and former President Donald Trump. Xu Liang, an associate professor at the School of International Relations of the Beijing International Studies University, claimed that such displays by American leaders showed “the declining U.S.”
China is swiftly becoming global bad guy numero uno, thanks in no small part to the continued belligerence coming out of Beijing.
