This was the Seinfeld summit – nothing happened. And that works to Communist China’s advantage because all President Joe Biden did was signal to Xi Jinping American acceptance of what should otherwise be an unacceptable status quo.
In that status quo, Communist China continues to wage economic and cyber warfare on the United States. No pushback from Biden and they continue to hack our computers and take apart our manufacturing base.
Communist China continues to rattle sabers in the Taiwan Strait. At least according to the Chinese readout, Biden remains committed to the so-called One China policy and does not support Taiwan’s independence. Yet there was no pushback from Biden on China’s growing threats to Taiwan and therefore a clear sign of Neville Chamberlain-style weakness that will invite additional Communist aggression.
Communist China continues to build coal plants with little if any environmental controls at a breakneck – and break the carbon bank – pace. China’s coal binging will be more than sufficient to overwhelm the efforts of the entire rest of the world to control carbon emissions. Yet Biden refused to pressure Xi Jinping to honor his commitments on the global warming front.
While Biden is at least keeping the Trump tariffs on China for now, he refused to insist Xi honor China’s commitments to agricultural and other purchases agreed to in what was billed in January 2020 as a historic Trump trade agreement. Once again, with China tens of billions of dollars short on it commitments, China has earned its reputation as never following through on any agreement it ever signs.
