China Hacks, Russia Expands, Biden Dithers
The American president’s foreign policy can be summed up in two words: America Last.
During Donald Trump’s presidency, we kept hearing the feigned worry, “What does Russian President Vladimir Putin have on Trump?” Leftists clung to the “collusion” narrative to the point of derangement. As it turned out, Putin didn’t have anything on Trump, and Trump’s policies vis-à-vis Russia were pretty tough.
Now, the question everyone should be asking is, “What does Chinese President Xi Jinping have on Joe Biden?”
Apparently, quite a lot.
Just for a moment, let’s consider something other than the fact that the Chinese communists released a deadly plague on the world, and then lied about it and covered it up.
Earlier this week, Chinese hackers launched a cyberattack that impacted more than a million Microsoft Exchange accounts. The White House blamed China, but what was the response?
The Biden administration “stopped short of sanctioning Beijing for contracting with hackers,” The Washington Free Beacon reports. “The United Kingdom, European Union, and NATO joined the United States in condemning China for facilitating the March attack on Microsoft Exchange email servers. But President Joe Biden and State Department spokesman Ned Price dismissed the need for retaliation, causing some lawmakers to question the Biden administration’s ability to combat hostile foreign actors.”
Secretary of State Atony Blinken admitted that China’s “irresponsible, disruptive, and destabilizing behavior in cyberspace” poses “a major threat to our economic and national security.”
Blinken is right about the seriousness of the situation, but the U.S. is not holding China accountable as he claims. Instead, we’re reaching out to make sure China gets its way on a variety of issues that benefit China.
Again, the Beacon reports: “A bill introduced by House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Gregory Meeks (D., N.Y.) tucked millions of dollars in taxpayer money into a climate fund intended to boost cooperation with China. Meanwhile, Meeks rejected dozens of Republican measures to toughen the United States’ stance on human rights, the 2022 Olympics, and the defense of Taiwan.”
Any attempt to hold the line with China is rejected by the Biden administration. China can do as it pleases, and instead of being punished, it’s reaping all the rewards of a weak and submissive U.S. president.
Then again, China knows Biden is a pushover.
It was revealed this week that from 2011-2013 during the Obama-Biden administration, China hacked into American oil and gas pipeline companies, enabling the ChiComs to do serious damage to our energy infrastructure had they decided to do so.
Clearly, Biden repeatedly turning the other cheek will only invite China, Russia, and other belligerent nations to attack the U.S. again.
One of China and Russia’s mutual goals is “to create chaos if not shut down the U.S.,” argues Monica Showalter at The American Thinker. “They both know that the U.S. economy is the big vehicle for the U.S. military machine, and shutting it down from time to time, perhaps as dry runs for something truly catastrophic (they already can see that COVID makes our officials go nuts) is a possibility. What better than to shake money out of U.S. corporations through ransomware attacks that create uncertainty and decrease corporate profits?”
Again, it’s not just China playing with America like a cat toying around with a mouse.
The Biden administration has paved the way for Vladimir Putin’s pipeline project six months after Biden shut down America’s Keystone Pipeline. Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz called the deal a “catastrophe” for the United States and our allies, and one that would fill Russia’s treasury with billions for years to come.
Meanwhile, Iran’s involvement in a foiled kidnapping of an Iranian-born U.S. citizen in New York City is yet another example of the Biden White House failing to hold any of America’s enemies accountable.
As long as a weak, cognitively impaired, and ideologically bankrupt Joe Biden sits in the Oval Office, our national security is at risk. The president is willing to look the other way when China and Russia attack while making deals that enrich our enemies and leave American citizens vulnerable. His foreign policy can be summed up in two words: American Last.
