(Newsweek)   Apparently, some moron at the Claremont "Institute" thinks China is going to make Joe Biden into Dim Sum or something. Either way, I hope this is the dumbest thing I'll read today but probably not   (newsweek.com) divider line

...Because the trade "wars" that Donnie has been soooooooper effective at curbing their full ascendence in Asia and the South Pacific?

Motherf*cker, Donnie is out of office in a few weeks. Grab your droopy ass testicles up and get a f*cking grip: bad-mouthing the incoming President with sh*tty predictions, when your real time analysis are such sh*t, isn't helping. It's not even really helping "your side" because NO ONE believes that sh*t. It's just propaganda. Give it up, and maybe try getting a real f*cking job, you poser.

It seeks a reversion to the ostensibly pacific relations with the U.S. under which our ruling class aided, abetted and enabled its rise from trifling concern to our most formidable geopolitical adversary.

The US outsourced and offshored everything and anything not nailed down in order to screw over the US working and middle class. It wouldn't have mattered if it was China or India or Mexico or wherever. The fact of the matter is, US corporations did not want to pay US labor wages or US taxes and found a way to do it legally.... after they paid off a whole slew of politicians. Our most formidable geopolitical adversaries are not China. They are our global employers.

What does China's desired relationship look like?

Like his colleague, Chinese Ambassador to the U.S. Cui Tiankai, who delivered similar remarks days prior to an audience of prominent American business and military leaders, Wang in his Asia Society speech invoked General Secretary Xi Jinping's call for the U.S. and China to "work together in the spirit of no conflict [and] no confrontation,...focus on cooperation, manage differences,...and, together with other countries and the international community, advance the noble cause of world peace and development."


Well, that's it. Nuke's in the pipe. Five by five.

Juxtapose these words with General Secretary Xi's stated belief, as expressed to the CCP's senior-most leadership, in the imperative to "build a socialism that is superior [to] capitalism and lay the foundation for a future where we will win the initiative and have the dominant position"-a future in which Xi argues that "capitalism is bound to die out and socialism is bound to win." (Emphasis my own.)

Seeing as how they will become the number 1 economy in the world within 6 to 8 years due, in part, to US companies employing and selling commodities to them, I'd say they are already on their way. BUT:

Go watch that Netflix documentary 'American Factory'. If that window into things is any indication, China will see labor unrest as their working class and middle class grow. The show suggests that in China the unions are part of the company. Low pay (and no extra pay for out of country work) and long hours don't sound pro worker to me.

Now that Donnie the super genius is gone, China is so happy?   Trump fans are truly out of their minds.  Is the Claremont Institute a subsidiary of Trump University?

Of course China is happy! Everyone is happy about Trump going away.

Even Kim Jong-un is happy as a clam that he won't ever have to deal with that clown again.

If only Biden could handle world leaders like Trump handled Putin.

Yeah, I've got a bit much on my plate what with all the death and civil war that I'm going to spare myself the poo-pooing of a President that hasn't taken office yet.

Current Reich wing talking point is that Biden is China's patsy.
China and the US are each other's number one trading partner.

Donald Trump was such a good trade negotiator he got an extra 1% milk concession from Canada.

A real farce of nature, that boy.

China and Russia had it easy slapping Trump's biatch tits around the last four years. A seasoned foreign policy wonk like Biden with a cut throat prosecutor in VP Harris won't be so cuddly.

Wait, what?  Seriously, I don't even think true trump believers would say something that absurd.  You almost have to feel bad for trump when you see him with Putin.

Not as bad as the time he was saluting a N. Korean general.  It's hard to believe that really happened.  OMG, what a shiat show this has been and continues to be.  Why hasn't someone just put a shock collar with a remote switch to stop him from embarrassing America.

I think Newsweek has adopted a policy of "trolling" as its business strategy for 2021.

"Clearly, Beijing would only deliver such a message if it believed it had a willing partner. "

No, Ben, you ignorant sack of monkey schmucks, that's hardly clear and barely believable. You would have to replace large parts of your cranial matter with old socks in order to not see problems with that statement. I'm not going to think for you because you need at least some practice and you have to start sometime, but China says all kinds of stuff all the time and hasn't had an -Elect as deeply attached as trump was to Russia. Joe is going to ratchet down the tariffs WHICH ARE US TAXES in most cases and likely use that goodwill to get some favors you ignorant slut.

There's about a 99% chance the article's author types, tweets, and/or texts on an electronic device made in Communist China.

For those who do 20th century history, the Claremont Institute is just a repackaged version of the John Birch Society with China being the new Russia.

Yea Trump's been doing a bang up job with foreign trade.

I don't know about this so-called "institute", but there presently exists no "communist" China any more than does a "democratic" "people's" "republic" of Korea.

Just get used to it. China is going to own us. They already are the majority owner. Now they own the new President and all his family via Hunter's machinations and drug habits. Most of the $600 stimulus checks are going back to China via 70 foot flat screen TVs at Walmart.

Yep. He'll have a better, more pliable clown to deal with.

This meme literally came from Trump's flopsweat, evasive answer on exactly what kind of shady shiat he was doing with China.
