There’s nothing quite like a major diplomatic summit between two rival superpowers, one power militarily ascendant, expansionist and hungry, the other led feebly by frail Joe Biden.
High stakes diplomacy and hi-stakes drama on the streets of San Francisco. Spies. Intrigue. Oodles of cash and fortunes to be made.
A plethora of unctuous toasts. American politicians bowing, kowtowing (can I still use that word?) and more American politicians and business leaders (you paying attention Nikki Haley?) lock their their lips onto the behind of China’s dictator Xi Jinping.
American CEOs stood to give a standing ovation to Xi Jinping. America’s corporate chieftains were thrilled companies including Apple, BlackRock, and Blackstone were there to support Xi Jinping and bask in his wisdom, as China smirks. And Russia and Iran smirk. And the world watches.
At the summit, U.S. business execs were so eager to rub elbows with China’s ruthless dictator Xi that they paid $40,000 apiece for a simple dinner. There wasn’t an Ortolan to be offered. Just steak. So, there was no need for American business titans to cover their faces with napkins from the shame of eating Ortolan. Instead, they applauded China and its ruthless dictator and showed their face to Xi.
Democrats hid the mentally deranged homeless and their tent cities in California, plucked them off the street, then spent days power-washing the human feces off San Francisco streets that they allowed to build up on the streets over the years.
Like King Augeas’ stables, not for horses mind you, but for Democrats standing and sleeping in their own filth. San Francisco was once a beautiful city, but then, so was Chicago.
And the wealthiest business bosses in America and the world gathered to rub elbows with China’s communist dictator Xi Jinping at the special VIP summit dinner.
They want to make money. And the politicians they’ve bought with them want to make money. They’d sell their daughters, sons, wives, mothers and fathers as fee-for-service prostitutes. But mostly, they’d sell our country to China and ridicule those of us who’d oppose.
Biden has been desperate for this summit meeting, begging for it like a 14-year-old boy in pursuit of his babysitter who doubles as a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader. The president and his entire administration have been bowing and scraping anxiously and awkwardly for the summit, as did Biden Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen chasing the Chinese to seek their favor. She embarrassed herself as did former President Barack Obama, bowing to the Saudi king.
The kowtow is known as a supreme sign of reverence. It is something a slave might do. But American presidents are never to put their foreheads to the ground in subservience to a foreign overlord. It might frighten people. Besides kowtowing to China has already been done by Hollywood actors and the NBA. There’s nothing new in it.
With so much money at stake in California this week, and so many politicians and business types sniffing the summit like ravenous hounds, with California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsome sniffing after Joe Biden’s job, we’re missing two key aspects.
I’ve been telling you for years to look for the thing that isn’t there, to listen for the dog that doesn’t bark as Sherlock Holmes wanted you to do. And to search out the negative space in a crowd, or on a stage.
A few things stand out in the negative space, and whinny for attention like a mare who wants her sugar cube.
One thing missing is that U.S. Rep Eric Swalwell didn’t have a major role in the U.S. China Summit. Oh, dear, oh dear.
Remember him? He is the most unctuous politician in the world, perhaps second only in the unctuous sweepstakes to U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Pelosi) and perhaps the oily former CNN “media analyst” Brian Stelter, who just might be the abandoned love child of oily left wingers Neil Steinberg and Jeffery Toobin.
No matter. Because Swalwell fell into that Red Chinese honeypot with the lovely spy “Fang Fang” and was then protected by then Speaker Nancy Pelosi. And he got to preen and posture like they all do.
Another missing piece is that Hunter Biden wasn’t there. Did you see him? No? Neither did I. And that’s disconcerting.
If there is one man who can get the attention of China it is Hunter, the presidential drug addict son who made reported tens of millions of dollars in bribes and tips from Xi Jinping’s government. And he’s not in prison, yet.
Joe claimed loudly on national television–using his drunken “this is a bunch of malarky” voice–that Hunter and Joe did not “make money” from China.
Then the New York Post published it’s amazing story about Hunter Biden’s Laptop from Hell and Miranda Devine of the Post wrote columns casting China Joe as some new Boss Tweed. The media ginned up a story that it was all Russia disinformation, which was a lie.
I remember how the corporate media pitched a fit, like some angry entitled Gen Z snowflake squirting tears, living a drama about life being just too hard. The Hunter Laptop from Hell has provided a treasure trove of information about Hunter’s deals, and Joe and Hunter’s dinners at snazzy Georgetown restaurants, and more cash from CEFC China Energy Co.–which is an arm of the Chinese government.
Though the corrupt American legacy media isn’t interested in Biden corruption, the media isn’t all that interested in the Hamas riots in Washington either.
I suppose we should all be thankful for The Federalist magazine and its editor-in-chief Mollie Hemingway as well as law professor Jonathan Turley and other like-minded scriveners who’ve nobly focused on Hunter and Joe sleaziness. The Federalist has proven invaluable for Americans seeking to understand the depths of the Biden Inc. corruption.
And one more thing was virtually ignored as the business executives enjoyed their steak dinner with the ruthless dictator of China. The menu included a salad with local vegetables, Angus steak with sweet potato purée, asparagus, broccoli and green garlic pesto or a vegetable curry with jasmine rice.
For dessert there was a “buttery tart filled with seasonal fruit, berries and custard.”
While the business leaders and the Biden Democrats preened and their taste-buds exploded with flavors, there was one thing that didn’t provide for deliciousness:
The fact that there have been 100,000 young Americans poisoned.
Chinse fentanyl is killing them. It is brought across the open Southern border by the Mexican drug cartels. Biden knows this but doesn’t care.
He makes sounds like he’s concerned because some aide told the presidential meat puppet to demonstrate concern. But if he and other Democrats truly cared, they’d have closed the open border long ago, as thousands upon thousands of unknown “got aways” of military age scrambled across the Rio Grande.
But I’m sure China Joe enjoyed his buttery tart filled with seasonal fruit, berries and custard. And Xi Jinping watched him eat, and took mental notes about Biden’s old man lips wrapping around the spoon, Hunter’s appetites too.
Watching them make speeches and play at being great leaders, and Xi Jinping calculates as to when exactly he’ll make his move. Biden and the rest have worked so hard to make certain we’re not ready. And that move will be made, perhaps someday soon.
