China Mocks Joe Biden’s Powerlessness at COP26

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

China is laughing at America “kneeling” before Xi Jinping at COP26: “There will be more apologies from US politicians, and there will be more kneeling down”, according to the CCP backed Global Times.

China mocks ‘powerless’ Biden over climate summit ‘apology’

China has mocked US President Joe Biden after he used his speech at the climate summit to apologise for America’s inaction.

November 5, 2021 – 11:49AM

China has taken Joe Biden’s comments in Glasgow climate summit as a chance to mock the US President as “powerless”, despite the absence of President Xi Jinping from the conference. 

I guess I shouldn’t apologise, but I do apologise 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,” Mr Biden said.

Beijing-backed news outlet the Global Times published a piece the following day that ridiculed Mr 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, apologises for Biden’s apology”.

The US and others have urged Beijing to make bigger commitments, but Xi’s administration has strongly implied those will only come in exchange for political concessions. 

Mr Trump himself had seized on Mr Biden’s comment, claiming that world leaders were “laughing” at Mr Biden. 

“We have never been thought of so poorly as we are right now, including the fact that the leaders of foreign countries, all of whom are at the top of their game, are laughing at Biden as he makes the rounds in Europe,” Mr Trump said.

“So low and so bad for America. There has never been a time like it,”

From the Global Times, mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party;

Biden’s apology in Glasgow shows hypocrisy, powerlessness of US politicians

By Ai Jun Published: Nov 02, 2021 08:53 PM

US President Joe Biden apologized at the start of the COP26 UN climate summit. On Monday, when Biden made the remarks during a meeting on “action and solidarity” in Glasgow, he said, “I guess I shouldn’t apologize, but I do apologize for the fact the US, under the last administration, pulled out of the Paris accord.” What a “noble” apology, which made Biden seem like he cares about climate change, but also how hypocritical and powerless he is. 

Unlike what Biden may have expected, the apology triggered ridicule. Quite a few netizens, including those from the US, claimed they cannot wait until 2024 when the Republican Party, or even Donald Trump himself, apologizes for Biden’s apology. Most people believe this was hardly an apology, but a slap in the face of his predecessor, a move to pin all the blame on Trump. This is not about how sorry Biden is. He was making a show and bringing US political infighting to the global arena. 

Climate change is one of the most highly polarizing issues in the US. Leading Republicans, most notably Trump, have mocked the issue as a hoax and are reluctant to take it seriously. In March, 12 Republican-led states sued Biden for his executive orders on climate change. 

So if there is anything that Biden did bring to Europe, it must be a massive 85-car and gas-guzzling motorcade. Other than that, Biden can only make empty promises at COP26. His apology does not make any sense, as he has no plan to fulfill his promises and no guarantee to make sure that his commitment won’t be toppled by the next administration. Worse, he cannot even win enough support from his own party to get a green light for his plan. Also on Monday, Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, said he would not endorse a $1.75 trillion framework on social spending and climate change unveiled by Biden last week. For Biden, who is in Europe and waiting for something to deliver to the world, this is heavy blow. 

Is there a worst president of the US? Perhaps there is no “worst” but only “worse.” American voters always have high expectations during elections but will soon become frustrated. Can a US president turn the tide? It is worrying. But one thing is certain – political infighting will continue, which is exhausting US strength in dealing with domestic and global issues.

There will be more apologies from US politicians, and there will be more kneeling down, Xu said. 

Read more: https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202111/1237944.shtml

The Global Times article also attacked President Trump. But China’s mockery of Biden is a geopolitical assertion of authority which the entire world is watching. Biden’s absurd climate apology and helplessness in the face of brazen Chinese aggression risks making America a global laughing stock.

The mockery started with Xi Jinping personally snubbing the COP26 event, then continued when Xi’s representatives snubbed Biden’s climate proposals, demanding a huge payoff to even consider the proposals. Now they are laughing at Biden’s climate apology, calling Biden powerless, mocking the USA as “kneeling down” before China.

The most shocking part of this affair, Biden obviously went into the COP26 conference completely unprepared for Chinese aggression. There are plenty of diplomatic levers Biden could have used to push back against China, ranging from a mild ratcheting up of sanctions, right up to the ultimate comeback, dropping a hint the USA is considering granting full diplomatic recognition to Taiwan. But pushing back would likely cause an immediate Chinese COP26 walkout. Biden is so desperate for a climate deal, China is laughing in Biden and America’s face on the world stage, and everyone is watching China get away with it.

It looks to me like all the Republicans who voted in favor of this boongoogle infrastructure bill did so because the bill had a provision in it allowing Blue States like New York and New Jersy to deduct their State taxes from their Federal taxes, thus giving those States huge tax breaks compared to other States.

I believe all the Republicans who voted for this were from New York and New Jersey.

So in order to get a taxbreak for their constituents, they sell the nation down the river by opening the door to socialism taking over this country by voting for this bill which has very little money in it for infrasturcture and a lot of money for socialism.

We’ll see how many of these short-sighted Republicans get re-elected in 2022.

Six out of 13 are indeed from NJ and NY: Jeff Van Drew and Chris Smith of New Jersey; Andrew Garbarino, John Katko, Nicole Malliotakis, and Tom Reed of New York.

The other 7 are:
Don Young of Alaska; Adam Kinzinger of Illinois; Fred Upton of Michigan; Don Bacon of Nebraska; Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio; Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania; and David McKinley of West Virginia.

Undoubtedly they are all more interested in trying to retain their seat in purple districts than to stand on principle. Principle that they probably don’t believe in in the first place.

The thought of Biden standing up to Xi over Taiwan… that generated a big belly laugh.

The thought of Biden standing up to anyone, really. The left never wanted him, but COVID derailed the primaries before they could find an alternative to Bernie Sanders, who might actually have lost to Trump.

One deal in South Carolina made before COVID, designed to prevent Bernie from running away with it, and there was nothing more they could do other than ride him into the Oval Office and take advantage of his mental state to push him far enough to the left.

But he’s no leader. That much has been clear from the day he took office. Xi doesn’t even have to admit he couldn’t care less about CO2 levels. I’m sure China has plenty of scientists who aren’t as hamstrung by the left-wing journals and university climate “science” departments. All he has to do is use Biden’s own words against him.

And he actually does have a point. When you outsource your manufacturing to a country that embraces slave labor and communism, you don’t exactly have the moral high ground to whine about invisible unicorns mucking about with the climate.

Biden is powerless against China and seems to be profiting from the relationship anyway (Hunter’s laptop evidence, despite our media’s attempts to discredit it). It’s almost as if he’s just as much Xi’s puppet as he is Pelosi’s.

The reason the MSM was not going after G.W. Bush like they did Trump is because G.W. Bush allowed them to lie about him and Republicans and hardly ever pushed back on the leftwing lies.

Unfortunately, the Biden crime family has been receiving money from nations Biden should be confronting, but Biden doesn’t do any confronting. This may be because our enemies have blackmail material on Biden, or it may just be Biden’s innate appeaser view of the world. Biden is going to be the last guy to confront anyone. Other than his domestic enemies. He’s fierce when it comes to them, and anything goes to defeat them, even if it is illegal and violates the U.S. Constitution. But when it comes to foreign enemies, Biden runs away as fast as he can like your typical appeaser would do.

China is not capitalist. It’s fascist. It allows free enterprise in order to enrich and empower the Party, but strictly limits its capitalists, to include throwing them in jail if they get too uppity.

Both Russia and China are indubitably enemies of the West. The Communist Party of China is by far more dangerous than its de facto allies, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and the Syrian regime.

The Communist Party of China is pure, unadulterated evil, bent on doing to the world what it has inflicted on its own subject peoples. That means mass murder, genocide, executing and harvesting the organs of religious minorities, throwing ethnic and religious minorities into slave labor camps in their millions, suppressing dissent, surveiling its populace and rating the political reliability of individuals, grabbing maritime regions to which it has no valid claim under international law, stealing economic and military secrets, manipulating currencies, intervening in the politics of democratic countries and unfair trade practices.

It is a gangster enemy of humanity. It is now able to modernize its military, thanks to the hard work of its enslaved 1.4 billion people. But its window for world control is rapidly closing, due to its aging and probably declining population. China’s median age is 38, same as the US. India’s is 27.

The Communist Party’s misogynist one child policy is now coming back to destroy its military ambitions. Its tens of millions of wifeless males are rapidly aging, leading to a shortage of its former excess, expendable infantry.

Not to mention unleashing biological warfare on the world.

Germany, England, Italy, Japan, Mexico, North Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam…

1) One was for independence and again in protest against their seizing and impressing Americans into their navy.

2) Four were for world wars helping the Allies and defeating fascism. One of the countries, Japan attacked our navy in Hawaii, our outposts and the Aleutian islands.

3) One was to support Texas independence and eliminate foreign tyranny. And again later in retribution against Pancho Villa depredations.

4) One was to help rescue Kuwait from Iraq.

5) One was in retribution for Bin Laden attacks on America, killing thousands.

6) One was an international effort to rescue Korea from North Korean and China aggression.

Americans have waged war with less than ten countries out of 195 countries. Quite a few countries have been conquered by other countries more frequently than that.

You can always tell when they assume guilty instead of accepting innocent until proven guilty.

An approach you yourself follow, silly. Conservatives are automatically guilty and demorats are automatically innocent no matter what they burned, harmed, killed, harassed, careers destroyed, professors fired, research corrupted, civil rights destroyed, etc.

Trump has been winning lawsuits and inquiries because they neither claimants nor prosecutors are able prove their claims.

Wrong!

Trump’s deal was not to cut and run and abandon Afghanistan. Trump’s deal would have maintained the status quo in Aghanistan, and there would not be a humanitarian crisis going on there now. Trump had no intention of giving the Taliban control of Aghanistan.

Biden followed his own plan which was to get out as fast as he could and damn the conseqences.

We’ll be watching the consequences for a long time in the future. And we will probably have to end up sending troops back into Afghanistan in the future.

Trump’s deal involved milestones that the Afghan government needed to meet. Every time a milestone was met, there was a drawdown in troops.

It was Biden who ordered the troops to be drawn down so far that there was not enough troops left to guard both the Baghran air force base and the national airport, the local commanders begged Biden to reconsider, but he refused. Because of this the local commanders were forced to abandon Baghran and all the equipment stored there.
This resulted in the rapid collapse of the Afghani army as they no longer had air support, as well as all the supplies being stored at Baghran being captured by the Taliban.

Only the useful idiots still try to blame Afghanistan on Trump.

Joe did not follow through on Trump’s deal. He accelerated the time table, he ignored all the checks built into Trump’s deal.

The only thing in common between Trump’s deal and what Biden did, was that they both ended up with the US out of Afghanistan.

If you think Biden wanted to stay in Afghanistan, you are even dumber than you make yourself appear.

Wait… the one thing Trump did that Biden feels obligated to support… and still, he gets it all wrong.

I’m not sure why everyone went along with GWB’s nonsense of nation-building. The Taliban supported a terrible attack against our country and harbored the perpetrators. But building a monument to democracy in the wake of attacking the Taliban? Not a smart move.

Trump (like many others) recognized that. However, his “negotiations” with this terrorist organization were not a good idea. They failed. Cynically, Biden not only stuck with the concept, but botched the execution. That’s on him.

Meanwhile, Biden supports resurrecting the antisemitic Iran deal created by his predecessor, who spent two decades of his life worshiping, every Sunday, in a church devoted to the destruction of Israel (the UCC, home of Jeremiah Wright, does little other than voting to condemn Israel every year or so, but never issues as much as a peep about China or Iran or the Taliban or any of the African regimes that actually are carrying out genocide).

Biden did not follow Trump’s plan for leaving Afghanistan.

Biden didn’t even ask the Generals for their plan. He simply ordered everybody out, after the CIA set up giving the Taliban all of the equipment, vehicles, weapons, planes and ammunition.

Plus, the CIA purposely motivated military age Taliban to join the evacuation while leaving Americans and green card Afghans behind for the Taliban to terrorize and kill

Odds are Biden left a billion dollars in cash too. The real question is what evil did the democrat buy?

“One of the many great things about our just signed giant Trade Deal with China is that it will bring both the USA & China closer together in so many other ways. Terrific working with President Xi, a man who truly loves his country. Much more to come!”

“China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!”

“Just had a long and very good conversation by phone with President Xi of China. He is strong, sharp and powerfully focused on leading the counterattack on the Coronavirus. He feels they are doing very well, even building hospitals in a matter of only days … Great discipline is taking place in China, as President Xi strongly leads what will be a very successful operation. We are working closely with China to help!”

“I think President Xi is working very, very hard. I spoke to him. He’s working very hard. I think he’s doing a very good job. It’s a big problem. But President Xi loves his country. He’s working very hard to solve the problem, and he will solve the problem. OK?”

Millions of dollars worth of business. And why did the wife of the Mayor of Moscow give Hunter Biden $5 million dollars?

And since you are such a stickler for morality, Simon, it appears from reports that Joe Biden sexually molested his daughter. She recounts it in her diary that got stolen by someone and wound up in the hands of an investigative journalist.

I guess Biden thinks it is so serious that he sent the FBI to raid the investigative journalist’s business yesterday looking for the diary. Unfortunately for Joe, the contents of the diary have been made public.

And since you are such a stickler for morality, Simon, it appears from reports that Joe Biden sexually molested his daughter.”
Please provide this evidence?
Is Hunter all you got. Unlike Trump Joe Biden admits his son has issues.
“As far as I know, Trump never molested any of his relatives.”

Machiavelli in writing Discourses on Livy (1531) hoped to reestablish a unified Italy during the Renaissance and form a Republican government modeled on Ancient Rome. In the opening Discourses he discusses the history how Rome became a powerful Republic originating from a Monarchical city state.

He takes from the Greeks the historical idea of the transient nature of government and the transitions in the ruling forms of governments; and he contrasts the good and bad forms like obverse sides of a coin: Tyranny and Monarchy, Oligarchy and Aristocracy, and Mob rule and Democracy. The Greek people lived under them all.

The American Framers of the Constitution at the Convention in Philadelphia almost all of whom were classical scholars read Machiavelli’s Discourses or at least the early chapters. They absorbed his thinking on how Republics must be expansive geographically and growing in population beyond the size of a City State to become and remain strong.

The Framers created a tripartite system of government with some of Machiavelli’s ideas in mind: an executive in the person of the President; a Bicameral Congress or legislature with a People’s House of Representatives and a Senate selected by the States, and a Judiciary System of Courts to be created in detail by acts of the first Congress. The Framers hoped each elected Constitutional branch represented respectively what Machiavelli defined as a good form of government and to form them concurrently after the Constitution was approved to give rise to a stable, enduring and expanding Constitutional Republic.

During the past 18 months and after the November 2020 presidential election, the United States has experienced aspects of the three “bad” forms of government due to Democratic Party NeoMarxist, Post-Modernist, Woke ideology: Tyranny, Oligarchy, and Mob Rule; you can surmise who plays which part though the Tyrant may be merely a demented puppet, a front man for the ruling Oligarchy of Elites within the Administrative State; regardless, the result has at times been Anarchy in the streets and at the border and the goal seems to be dissolution of the American State as a Constitutional Republic as founded-without the consent of the People.

Excellent post, Gerard.

That is the goal of the radicals, and the radicals seem to be in charge of the Left.

We are in a war for our nations future. Or at least, the Left is in the war. The Right is only about half in the war. Witness the 12 Republican fools in the U.S. House who voted for the “Infrasturcture” bill last night.

Those 12 along with the 12 Republican U.S. Senators who voted for this bill should be voted out of office at the next opportunity, as they have demonstrated they are not smart enough to figure out what the Left is doing in undermining the U.S. and those Republicans voting that way are just helping the radical leftwing cause.

EXCERPT

HIDING THE HUNTER BIDEN EVIDENCE TO PROTECT JOE BIDEN
https://www.windtaskforce.org/profiles/blogs/hiding-the-hunter-biden-evidence-to-protect-joe-biden

Info status as of December 30, 2020
As additional news comes in during October through February, this write-up will be revised and augmented.

INTRODUCTION

Biden has a history of:

1) Performing near the bottom of his class, in college and in law school, 
2) Repeated plagiarism, while a student and in public office.
3) Shady financial dealings with China and Ukraine,
4) Touchy-feeling women and children, in public, on video, 
5) Sexually assaulting women co-workers, 
6) Impeachable malfeasance relating to emoluments, while in office as VP

I can assure you, I do not like this disappointing news about Biden. 
I always thought he was one of the good guys.

All of it can be easily obtained by some googling.
https://www.windtaskforce.org/profiles/blogs/hiding-the-hunter-biden-evidence-to-protect-joe-biden

So much dirt exists, because he ran twice for President, bowed out twice, because Hillary was digging up too much dirt, with help of the Media that favored her. He was not gaining traction, while defending himself.

This time the Media favored Biden, so no dirt was to be found anywhere
However, all hands to the pumps to find maximum dirt on Trump, and Facebook and Twitter helped out as well.

Even the blind and deaf knew what was going on.

Influence Peddling: Biden was doing his influence peddling while VP, an impeachable offense (emoluments), similar to the insider-dealing of Spiro Agnew, the VP of Nixon.
Agnew resigned, with Nixon to follow later.
I am old enough to remember at 83

The Media: I realized the US Media was not going to cover his “activities”
Twitter and Facebook are still blocking accounts and URLs, i.e., putting a lid on the Biden shenanigans. 
Twitter and Facebook employees have given 51 times more to Biden than Trump, FEC data shows.
Despite Twitter and Facebook obstructions, the Joe and Hunter Biden corruption story is soaring on social media.
It looks like those obstructions are backfiring.

It looks like the Media versions of “reality” have free reign.
George Orwell has come to pass.

Therefore, I decided to prepare my own well-researched write up.
It has been widely distributed.

As additional news comes in during October, 2020 through February, 2021, the write-up gets revised and augmented.

There is perhaps a silver lining in the otherwise very dark Biden cloud. The Dems will likely lose both House and Senate next November. Then the damage can be limited. Meanwhile, we can be hopeful that Manchin and Sinema can keep the House craziness in check in the Senate for the next 12 months, while DeSantis and other governors battle Biden’s OSHA mandate overreach in the courts.

And no matter what, COP26 will fail. Greta is already protesting it.

They were both elected in 2018, so are not up for re-election in 2022. That said, Manchin is the only Democrat in state-wide office in the state of West Virginia, having won in 2018 with less than 50% of the vote in a split contest. Sinema is also considered a conservative Democrat, having voted just over 50% of the time with the Trump Administration. It is difficult, certainly, to predict what they will do, but Manchin in particular must be looking over his shoulder, especially when the Biden Administration’s goal is to eliminate coal. Manchin knows he was lucky the last time, and wouldn’t survive another election if he sells out his state. Even being the one to make the Democrats the majority in the Senate makes him a big target he may not be able to dodge in 2024.

If it does happen, then the Legislature can go back to the drawing board and mark up a bill strictly focused on infrastructure, without the Democrat socialist agenda included.

Hell, the government hasn’t even spent all the money allocated during the Trump administration for pandemic relief, yet these Democrat imbeciles want to spend 6 or 8 TRILLION more dollars, most of which goes to the Democrat-socialist wishlist.

Based on this afternoon’s House events, you may be right that they will. Prayapil just nixed Pelosi’s vote plan for today. Says both bills together or no bills. But 5 moderate Dems won’t vote for BBB until the CBO scores it. That score will be a fiscal disaster. Pelosi cannot lose more than 3 House votes total, and the bad CBO score could scare off all five moderates, all of who are in serious jeopardy of losing next year. Plus, they already know Manchin won’t go for BBB as currently structured in the Senate, so BBB is not the hill for the five moderates to die on.

A number of U.S. States use the line-item veto.

A line-item veto, contrary to the latest U.S. Supreme Court ruling, does not take power away from the Legislative Branch.

If a president vetos an item in a spending bill, the Congress has the ability to override that veto if they have the votes, so the power of Congress is not infringed by a line-item veto.

The power of Congress to override the president is not taken away. As long as they have the votes, but of course, that also applies where there is no line-item veto scenario.

The line-item veto just requires the Congress to take an extra step in the process sometimes. If they have the votes, nothing prevents them from taking that extra step.

The U.S. Supreme Court is completely off-base on this issue.

I read a book on Karl Marx years ago, about how he lived the high-life in London, with Sunday afternoon champagne picnics in Hyde Park during the Summer months, the Capitalist decadent practices were not for the ordinary people, they must be oppressed, re-educated (easier when many hadn’t received one anyway), to serve the ruling elites, as useful idiots, named by his great follower Vladimir Lenin!!!

Eric Worrall,

You say the article you are quoting is

From the Global Times, mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party;

If that be true then the article is intended for provision to the Chinese people.

That being so, then the point which is of greatest importance in the article says,

American voters always have high expectations during elections but will soon become frustrated. Can a US president turn the tide? It is worrying. But one thing is certain – political infighting will continue, which is exhausting US strength in dealing with domestic and global issues.

This is a clear assertion from China’s Communist government that the Chinese one-party-totalitarian State is innately superior to the American political system because China is not subject to “political infighting will continue, which is exhausting US strength in dealing with domestic and global issues.

The remainder of the article can be understood to be intended as bolsters of that assertion which is Chinese internal propaganda intended to justify Xi’s absence from CoP26 which Biden attended. As such it has little significance.

The Chinese know they are seen as propagandists. The people who matter won’t be influenced by China pooh-poohing the US. China knows that.

It’s about democracy.

That’s what they are fighting in Hong Kong (and elsewhere). They are mocking the change of authority with each election. They are questioning how the President can apologise for the President when Trump and Biden are on different sides of the divide.

It’s a clever attack. And it cuts far deeper than what you suggest.

Eric Warrell,

Thanks to you and all others who responded to my post.

My only dislike of the responses is with the comment from “Citizen Smith” which attempts to misrepresent what I wrote.

I am especially grateful for your reply that makes several cogent points. My only dispute of your comments is when you write,

Conveying the impression of overwhelming Chinese power is part of China’s effort to intimidate the rest of the world into accepting direction from China, to make the world submit to China’s will, without China even having to fire a shot.

My experience of Chinese government officials is that they are much more subtle than that. If they seem to be doing – or saying – one thing then they are probably attempting to do something else.

Chinese communists do use intimidation (especially of their own people) but this has not normally been a method used to promote PRC power internationally. For decades, ‘creeping influence’ has been their favoured method to spread communism especially in sub-Saharan Africa. As illustration, I cite the example of Hong Kong because Matt used it to dispute my post. The policy of ‘one country, two systems’ could have been overthrown at any time but was initially adopted and the democracy in Hong Kong has slowly but surely been usurped by Beijing.

Anyway, my post has engendered discussion of your article which can only be good.

Richard

I made a serious typo.
It was ‘climate believer’ and NOT ‘citizen Smith’ who attempted to misrepresent me.

Apologies to all and especially ‘citizen Smith’

Xi Jinping has gotta love Joey…the destruction that Joey is doing to America is something Xi can only dream about. I am sure Xi is saying Go Joey Go!

Let the Chicoms laugh. They should just remember that the last laugh is the best laugh. They may not be having the last laugh at the moment.

From the article: “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, apologises for Biden’s apology”.”

I’m waiting for Trump, or the next Republican president to reverse everything Biden has done, in a repudiation of Biden’s stupidity.

That’s how the U.S. gets back on track and back on top.

It’s easy for the Chicoms to make fun of Biden. They won’t be making fun of Trump. They’ll get a whole new attitude.

The ease of dealing with a moron like Biden will soon be over for the Chicoms. Enjoy it while you can. You did see the backlash against the radical Democrats in the latest election, didn’t you? That’s just the beginning. The Democrat cheating has given you four years, but that’s all you are going to get, and maybe not even that much if the Republcians take over Congress in the next election. So enjoy your little laugh while you can. Not everyone in the United States is a fool like Biden.

How’s that Bird Flu doing over there, Xi? Are you going to foist that out on the whole world like you did the Wuhan virus?

No Olympics for you!

I see where China now has a Bird Flu outbreak, and a new outbreak of the Wuhan virus delta version.

Ivermectin for the Wuhan virus. I don’t know if it will work against the Bird Flu but it probably has some good effect since it is an antiviral.

Of course Biden is helpless, he is a senile man who should be in an assisted living facility. The Ron Klain-Susan Rice administration is the most public case of elder abuse in US history.

If Joe is powerless at COP(whatever), that’s good for US!

Classic deflection as well as passive aggression on Biden’s part. He’s trying to make excuses for why his own party can’t or won’t pass his climate legislation. Hilarious.

The Dems have the MSM on their side. And they had COVID on their side in the election that gave his string pullers’ power. (Lot’s of ignoring of a State’s own election laws.)

Sadly Canadian liberals do not mock Biden, they put him on a pedestal. Even though Biden cancelled XL pipeline, a $20+ billion hit to the CDN economy. Even though Biden asked OPEC & Russia to produce more oil. Even though Biden has shown to be more of a ‘protectionist’ than Trump ever was, beginning with his comments on Automobile Manufacturing. And next year, when the USA cancels the 1885 Passenger Vessel Act, a $2.5 billion hit the CDN tourist industry. Any more Biden policies and unemployed CDNs will be storming across the border looking for jobs.

Biden is only a protectionist when it benefits his union backers.

Joe Biden is an embarrassment. Other world leaders have growing fear of being near him at the risk of cringeworthy moments they cannot avoid. He could not even remember his Australians buddy’s name during the AUKUS announcement.

Long haul flights and busy schedules are tough on the body for anyone but tougher as you get older. Joe showed how age during the G20/COP26 trip. I doubt he has many more cross ocean flights in him.

Australia’s ScoMo was a reluctant starter for COP26 but was begged by Boris and asked nicely by the Queen to show solidarity. He worked hard to get a net-zero “plan” just before leaving and he had just come back from another long overseas stint. There are no short hops from Australia to overseas destinations with the exceptions of NZ and PNG. And Tassie of course.

This now someone really special to a lot of the American people. Xi would never see such out pouring of emotion.

China only has a decade or so to get it’s economy righted before a huge demographic train wreck hits them.
They are aging rapidly, there aren’t enough young people to support this aging population with their current productivity rates.
The lack of women for their young men to marry is going to create huge social tensions.

A country that is traditionally xenophobic, being torn apart by internal dissension, with an economy that’s collapsing, but is still armed with nuclear weapons.
That is something to worry about.

More Biden Admin hilarity-
‘Would that I had the magic wand’- U.S. energy chief on oil output (msn.com)
These are the watermelons who favour carbon taxing and getting rid of oil altogether. What a bunch of flip flopping airheads and ditherers. It was never about the colourless odourless tasteless plant food.

The “Magic Wand” is to do what Trump did: Encourage oil production rather than discouraging it.

That’s why Granholm laughed. She was picturing herself trying to increase U.S. oil production and getting shot down by Biden. It’s a joke to think Biden would promote more oil production in the U.S. So she laughed.
