That didn’t take long…
The ink had barely dried on King Biden’s first 17 executive orders when China, free of the only president — Donald Trump — to stand up it since the Korean War, began testing our new ‘leader.’
Eight Chinese bomber planes and four fighter jets entered the southwestern corner of Taiwan's air defence identification zone on Saturday, and Taiwan's air force deployed missiles to 'monitor' the incursion, the island's Defence Ministry said.
China, which claims Taiwan as its own territory, has conducted almost daily flights over the waters between the southern part of Taiwan and the Taiwan-controlled Pratas Islands in the South China Sea in recent months.
However they have generally consisted of just one or two reconnaissance aircraft.
The presence of so many Chinese combat aircraft on this mission – Taiwan said it was made up of eight nuclear-capable H-6K bombers and four J-16 fighter jets – is unusual.
Unusual? Yes, but only since about January 20, 2017, when Trump was sworn into office and began making good on his pledge to confront China’s aggressiveness in the South China Sea and elsewhere.
Unexpected? Not if you have a functional brain stem.
The losers in the ‘mainstream media’ will miss this, of course, because they’re too busy thinking about all of the cool Washington parties they’re going to start attending again now that Biden’s in the White House.
But since Biden’s nickname is “China Joe” and his son, Hunter, ‘reportedly’ has lots of business ties with Chinese companies linked to Beijing’s ruling ChiComs, President Xi Jinping knows that our frail, mind-addled president is in no position to, um, make any demands.
We never thought we’d say this, but frankly, in regards to this one issue alone, the world would be better off with Kamala Harris sitting in the Oval Office.
There is no one on the planet today more nervous about Trump leaving office that Taiwan’s leaders — except maybe for the South Koreans and Japanese.
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
