Jill Biden: We’re Bringing Love From America’

 

This should cheer the cockles of Putin’s heart. Good to set the tone for Biden’s European debut on the world’s stage for the first time as President. Letting the NATO folks slide on their “fair share” dues because we feel the love again, as well as pushing the Climate change nonsense will be on the docket. But if we wondered who was wearing the pants and pulling Joe’s strings wonder no more.

The first lady said she wanted people to “feel a sense of unity for all the countries and feel a sense of hope after this year of the pandemic.” So she went for the classy look with the oh so chichi look. Rock on Jill. That’s Dr. Jill to us.

 

 

Setting the stage for the priorities for the big meeting. No kidding!! The Pentagon told him.

Biden: “global warming” is the greatest threat to America

Image

Sen. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., asked Milley about Biden’s comments about global warming being America’s greatest threat.

Milley replied that climate change has had a significant effect on military operations that must be considered.

“Climate change is going to impact natural resources, for example,” he said. “It’s going to impact increased instability in various parts of the world. It’s going to impact migrations, and so on.”

He said there is no difference of opinion between himself and Biden when it comes to taking climate change as a serious threat.

“The president is looking at [potential threats] at a much broader angle than I am,” Milley said. “I’m looking at it from a strictly military standpoint and, from a strictly military standpoint, I’m putting China and Russia up there. That is not, however, in conflict with the acknowledgment that climate change, or infrastructure, or education systems — national security has a broad angle to it.”  Read more

Milley just trying to clean up a bit of Joe’s mess. Why yes, China and Russia are up there. Whew!

How about our VP? Still trying to figure out that visit the Mexico border thingy-

The best of the swamp today.

Joe Biden and his China strategy – feminize the U.S. military

 

It’s important that pregnant women are able to drop into enemy territory. Imagine a pregnant woman pilot with air sickness. Imagine a pregnant American woman captured by an enemy.

Imagine Joe Biden is President.

China is on a tear with a massive increase in Navy ship building. First we have Tucker Carlson giving us an update on China. Joe himself comes next with his military strategy and then our intrepid Mustang throws out some thoughts on the China matter for us think about.

 

 

China Joe himself with the necessary improvements to our fighting forces that will carry us to victory. Note his ever present minder Harris waiting in the wings prepared to pull the plug should Biden go off script or need direction to get off stage.

 

The Enemy of My Enemy

An Introduction to Chinese Checkers

by Mustang

 

 

Recently, Mr. Schweizer wrote about China’s Dragon Ships — a massive increase in Chinese navy shipbuilding. Despite Wikipedia’s warning about Peter Schweizer — that he’s a contributor to the far right media organization Breitbart News — I enjoy his articles.  They are well-researched and convey useful information in a well-organized and highly articulate manner.

Among his pearls are — 

  • The Chinese Navy has replaced the USN as the world’s largest 
  • China’s goal, in developing such a large navy is (a) to intimidate and threaten the economic security of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia, and (b) lay claim to the entire South China Sea as a Chinese sovereign territory
  • China’s push for nuclear powered ships reflects a longer-term goal of challenging the US and other navies around the world
  • China’s shipbuilding behavior will only get worse unless the US challenges China through diplomatic and economic penalties.

I think Mr. Schweizer did a good job in his article up until his final point.  Economic and diplomatic penalties imposed on China have never worked.  This bears repeating.  There is nothing more useless than a law that cannot be enforced, or a foreign policy that has no effect.  

So if we agree that the imposition of trade restrictions on China — or diplomatic consequences (and I cannot imagine what these might entail) — have no effect, why bother?  It makes you wonder, “Well, then, what else could the US do to challenge China?”

Beyond my reading of Chinese history and the product of the so-called China Watchers for a few decades, I am no expert.  I can say that Chinese frequently demonstrate their craftiness, and more often than not to the detriment of US foreign and trade policies (which reflects more the ineptness of American diplomats than it does on the cleverness of Chinese thinking).  As but one example, America’s involvement in the Vietnam War was entirely the brain-child of Chou En-Lai … whose trap we walked into with both eyes open.

All that aside, what could the Americans do to challenge China?

  • We could increase our naval construction program.  This is easier said than done, particularly since the US cannot bank on revenues if it intends to keep the American economy in lockdown mode.  China could more or less assure our continued lockdown by introducing yet another virus into the United States — which shouldn’t be too hard since every week, 3,881 flights arrive in the US from China.  Snap!  A robust US naval construction effort would entail more sailors (more financial outlays), but of course we cannot do that and provide unrestrained and un-budgeted-for economic stimulus programs to the American people.

 

  • The balance of power in East Asia may involve more than issues of naval supremacy; Japan, for example, purchases most of its rice from Vietnam.  We might encourage our Asian allies to pursue a more robust naval construction program — but that would only work if our Asian allies perceived the Chinese navy as a significant threat to their economic interests.  Otherwise, from their perspective, there would be no justification for increasing their spending on naval/military hardware.  Note: looking back in time, maybe FDR should have backed Japan against China in the 1930s.

 

  • I suppose the US could simply stop trading with China, although the fact is that if the US did impose an embargo on all Chinese made goods, it would only account for $106-billion (annually)… a drop in the bucket as a percentage of China’s GDP.  Plus, should we really send Wal-Mart into bankruptcy?

 

  • There is always the option of not challenging China’s naval activities at all.  Should the US really care about this — enough to spend billions we don’t have on naval construction — when China’s strategy may very well be the exact same thing we did to the former-Soviet Union, which was to drive the Soviets into economic oblivion?

 

  • Finally, the US might consider an ambitious campaign to convince Americans that Chinese noodles are deliciously nutritious.   

 Greg Poling, Director of the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative at the Center for Strategic and International Studies organization seems to agree with me, recently stating, “The South China Sea isn’t a military problem and has no military (naval) solutions.  All the force investments in the world won’t matter if the US fails to impose enough diplomatic and economic costs to alter Chinese behavior.”  

Of course, Mr. Poling probably has more confidence in America’s diplomatic corps than I do.  I cannot find one single “clever” thing the US State Department has done in the past 120 years that didn’t end up costing the American people needless loss of life or an increase in the loss of disposable income.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend is a concept suggesting that other governments who live in fear of China might become worthwhile American allies.  I laugh. 

 Our “friends” would expect that the USA subsidize their naval construction efforts, while at the same time increasing our trade deficits with them as part of the bargain.  It makes me want to question the wisdom of wasting time trying to create any worthwhile anti-Chinese alliances.  

By the way, the title expression originated in India in the fourth century before the common era.  It may not actually apply to this perceived Chinese threat since the US has no worthwhile friends and all of our former allies should have learned their lessons by now. 

Still, I wonder … what do the commenters at Bunkerville think?

China says ‘has people at the top of America’s core inner circle of power & influence’

We learn that China looks forward to a Biden administration and not having to deal with Trump. Says it all doesn’t it? Tucker includes a tape from the Chinese.

With any luck the Bidens should be charged with treason with his son. John Kerry should be asked about how is son is doing as well.

No surprise but of course this all comes out after the election.

Look what’s coming back to the White House – our savant John Kerry

(It’s on a loop)

Here is a refresher from an earlier post:

Joe Biden: ‘China not bad folks, not competition to us’

Of course let us not forget Biden in February before announcing his candidacy did the bend over thing in Europe.

Joe Biden goes to Europe and blasts America – Calls the U.S. an ’embarrassment’

Speaking to European allies, Biden trashed America with an open hostility.

“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” Biden asserted.

“The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are.”

Speak for yourself Joe.

Here is more from the Chinese professor for those who have the stomach for it.

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

Kamala Harris endorses Communism with just two days to go until Election Day.

 

Even liberals were taken aback by Kamala Harris’s in-your-face endorsement of Marxism, looking at the reaction on twitter to her latest pronouncement. Just charging up her base and now we know why Joe has been sitting in his basement.

 

I’ll save you all time, she’s a communist. They always make it look and sound pretty, fair, unthreatening and utopian but in reality it’s always ugly, unfair, full of threats and dystopian. Venezuelans & Cubans have seen this movie before and are warning you it doesn’t end well.

Then we have Anita Dunn of Obama fame out on the TV yesterday.

ABC’s “This Week”Anita Dunn, adviser to Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

Recall?

Biden’s Senior Advisor Anita Dunn Said Chinese Dictator Mao Zedong Was One Of Her ‘Favorite Political Philosophers’

A senior advisor to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign said Chinese dictator Mao Zedong was one of her “favorite political philosophers” during a speech to graduating high schoolers in 2009.

Anita Dunn

Anita Dunn, who was temporarily granted effective control of Biden’s campaign in February and now serves as a senior advisor, said Mao and Mother Teresa were “the two people that I turn to most” when she needs to encourage others to break from the mold and blaze their own trail in life.

“In 1947, when Mao Zedong was being challenged within his own party on his plan to basically take China over … the nationalist Chinese held the cities, they had the army, they had the air force, they had everything on their side,” Dunn told the audience. “And people said how could you win? How could you do this?” More at the Daily Caller

Then we have an earlier post that noted that the Biden clan made for VP Harris’s chief of staff Kamala Harris’s chief of staff: Haitian lesbian political powerhouse

Before announcing Harris as VP candidate, they already lined up her Chief of staff – no less than from the Obama administration, and of late MoveOn.org.

For a refresher on Moveon, lest we forget, back in 2016:

George Soros Founded Moveon.Org Takes Responsibility For Violent Donald Trump Protest – Promises More Protests Are To Come

“So here’s the plan: We’ll support MoveOn.org members to call out and nonviolently protest Trump’s racist, bigoted, misogynistic, xenophobic, and violent behavior — and show the world that America rejects Trump’s hate, ” the email read. “And to keep it going, we’re counting on you to donate whatever you can to cover the costs of everything involved — the organizers, signs, online recruitment ads, training, and more.”

I would say it sure looks like the Biden administration will not be from the “Center.”

Good luck America.

 

 

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

Tucker Carlson and the full Bobulinski interview

Hillary and Joe were both selling us out around the globe. She was just better at hiding the money. I am including the full Tucker Carlson interview with Tony Bobulinski.

“I would encourage the American people to go online and download Senator Johnsons 87-page report after watching this and read pages 65-87 and form your own conclusions” (0.41.25) from the Carlson interview.

I have posted the Johnson report several times. Not long and with lots of good exhibits.

How about some nuggets from the trail to start off a Monday. For some reason I don’t think Jon Meacham has much respect for us Trump supporters. Here is the first nugget.

 

 

Here is one to think about. Doesn’t sound good to me.

Bombshell Leaked Phone conversations – Biden, Kerry with Petro Proroshenko

The sleeper report put out by the Senate of the Biden malfeasance has been out for almost a month. As Newt Gingrich keeps saying, read the report. Even better yet, let me include the audio of taped phone conversations that include Kerry and Biden which make clear that corruption was the order of the day with Ukraine.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senators Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, released a report that revealed millions of dollars in questionable financial transactions between Hunter Biden and his associates and foreign individuals, including the wife of the former mayor of Moscow and individuals with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns

Hunter Biden

A copy of the full report is available here.

Copies of the investigation’s interview transcripts and exhibits are available here.

The Bidens have denied any wrongdoing, however depositions from former Ukrainian officials  who were directly involved, as well as leaked recordings between Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Proroshenko have painted a picture of textbook corruption. Notably, Ukrainian parliamentarian Andriy Derkach was sanctioned by the Treasury Department for “spreading disinformation to ‘undermine’ the former vice president” when he leaked several recordings of “voices similar to Poroshenko and Biden” discussing the quid-pro-quo, which Derkach says a journalist gave to him.

Facebook adviser on “election policy” was VP Biden’s adviser to Ukraine

Now we learn who is in charge of Facebook’s “election integrity on the platform” – no less than someone who was a policy adviser to Biden.

Anna Makanju is currently blocking all of the negative evidence of Hunter and Joe Biden’s corrupt activity in Ukraine and is the same person who was coordinating the corrupt activity between the Biden family payoffs and Ukraine. She was born and raised in the Soviet Union.

The swamp is very deep indeed. First a refresher:

Earlier I posted Joe Biden’s super PAC head run by a foreign ageny.  which identified more money connections with the Ukraine and Bursima.“

A former Joe Biden aide has filed paperwork to form a super PAC, called Unite the Country, that is set to boost the former vice president with millions of dollars in spending in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary,” Politico reported.

The firm worked for the party, the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, as a subcontractor to Blue Star Strategies, a Washington lobbying shop run by two veterans of the Clinton administration.

Blue Star has another connection to the Bidens: The firm advised the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while Hunter Biden served on its board, according to The Times.

Now the latest with our good friends-

Anna Makanju is the Facebook executive in charge of “election integrity on the platform”; and guess what her job was before that position… “Previously, she was the special policy adviser for Europe and Eurasia to former US Vice President Joe Biden”. (citation)

Joe Biden’s super PAC head run by a foreign agent

 

Millions of dollars are filling the coffers of Joe Biden. We wonder where the money is coming from. We know Wall Street, the globalists that they are, say to heck with the USA, it’s all about the money don’t you know. For those who wonder about his super pacs, I will give you this flashback. Keep your eye out for the name “Blue Star.” We should hear a lot more in the coming days about this fine company. First posted last October, 2019. As I say, follow the money.

Joe Biden : “I will not take Super PAC money or support ” ………. “unless I’m behind in the polls.” At least it sounds like how it went down. This might be bad enough but it is the “who” of it that’s to head the Pac is what grabs the headline. Good old Joe’s connection? James and Hunter Biden’s buddy who happens to be a lobbyist. The good news? We are moving on to Azerbaijan. Here it is believe it or not:

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has a brand new Super PAC in his corner, and it’s being run by a registered foreign agent for the government of Azerbaijan. Larry Rasky, a lobbyist who previously worked as a top campaign operative for Biden, is listed as the treasurer of the PAC, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

“A former Joe Biden aide has filed paperwork to form a super PAC, called Unite the Country, that is set to boost the former vice president with millions of dollars in spending in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary,” Politico reported on Tuesday.

Rasky’s firm also represented a Bangladeshi political party last year, reaching out to reporters at The New York Times, The Washington Post, POLITICO and other outlets on the party’s behalf, according to a disclosure filing. The firm worked for the party, the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, as a subcontractor to Blue Star Strategies, a Washington lobbying shop run by two veterans of the Clinton administration.

Blue Star has another connection to the Bidens: The firm advised the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while Hunter Biden served on its board, according to The Times.

Months after his father became vice president, Mr. Biden joined with Christopher Heinz, the stepson of John Kerry, then a senator, and Devon Archer, a Kerry family friend, to create a network of investment and consulting firms with variations of the name Rosemont Seneca. Mr. Kerry would go on to become secretary of state.

Mr. Biden and Mr. Archer pursued business with international entities that had a stake in American foreign policy decisions, sometimes in countries where connections implied political influence and protection.

Among the Americans brought in by Hunter Biden’s American business partners to help fend off the investigations was Blue Star Strategies, a consulting firm run by Clinton administration veterans that had done substantial work in Ukraine.

A team from Blue Star, and an American lawyer Blue Star hired, John D. Buretta, who had served as a senior official in the Obama Justice Department, held two previously unreported meetings in Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, with Mr. Lutsenko, who took office in May 2016 after Mr. Shokin’s dismissal, according to people with direct knowledge of the meetings. Mr. Lutsenko denied attending the meeting.

Mr. Lutsenko initially took a hard line against Burisma. But within 10 months after he took office, Burisma announced that Mr. Lutsenko and the courts had “fully closed” all “legal proceedings and pending criminal allegations” against Mr. Zlochevsky and his companies, and that the oligarch had been removed by a Ukrainian court from “the wanted list.” Mr. Zlochevsky returned to the country.

Politico reported in August that Rasky also explored going into business with Hunter Biden and James Biden, the former vice president’s younger brother. At one point, Rasky planned to provide a million dollars towards the Bidens’ purchase of Paradigm Global Advisors, a hedge fund.

Hunter Biden

 

“James and Hunter brought in Larry Rasky, a lobbyist and longtime Biden adviser, who at one point, according to court records, was going to provide $1 million in financing,” Politico reported. “Rasky did not respond to a request for comment.”

Postscript: Larry Rasky passed away recently from Covid.

From his obituary:

“Among the things we all loved about Larry was how he lived life fully and immersed himself in his passions with great zest –Democratic politics and his beloved friends Joe Biden, Ed Markey, Marty Walsh and John Kerry to name a few.”

I am positive there will be others who will be more than willing to fill his shoes.

Things are going very very well in the swamp.

Biden has an ‘Oopsie’ – ‘not one tiny bit of evidence’ re: Hunter

I figure might as well join the fray. This clip has the axios interview about half way through with good ole Joe and knowing what is coming out it sure looks like an oopsie to me. It will be interesting to see if it comes up in the town hall. We still have the China thing.

Joe Biden flew Hunter Biden to China on Air Force 2 at taxpayers expense to pick up 1.5 billion dollars. China was buying something with that money and it was not Hunter Biden

Yep.. WOWOW. Now the big dog gets deleted.

Other than that the swamp is doing very well indeed.
