You know... we laugh at Biden, his antics and his cronies and they sure deserve the mocking, the laughter and the derision we throw his way. But on the other hand, a lot of this crap isn't funny at all.

Biden does not love America. He's never even shown a fondness for his country. He asks not what he can do for his country, but what can his country do for him.

China is just one of the issues we face today. There are plenty more, that if not handled right could go like a powder keg in our faces and that's not even counting the way he and other democrats are slowly strangling the country to death.

Sobering as hell.

Either they're getting schooled or they're getting paid under the table, in my opinion.

China pretends it’s a developing country, steals technology, uses forced labor and manipulates markets to its advantage. It's a grand deception. Barrasso: China's goal is domination, not cooperation. It's playing Biden and America for fools.

China has full custody of Joe Biden, and they share custody of John Kerry with Iran. Biden and Kerry are not Americans, they're foreign agents working in America.

Oh, Republican senator Barasso. That settles it. No kook bias there.

The Trump cultists never figure out that they're being fed propaganda to keep them hysterical, because that keeps them so obedient. The GOP promises to save them from whatever horrors the GOP invented.

Precisely.

You should have a good look at contemporary Chinese history. You will find that until very recently, they spent next to nothing on their military, realizing it would be a waste of money. They understood the odds of anyone actually attacking mainland China were slim to none. They realized some time back that their biggest asset was people and then did what they needed to do to use that asset to drag themselves forward a century or more in very short order. They make the western world look lazy because compared to them we have been. They had a goal in mind - to catch up with us - while we did little but sit on our laurels. The Chinese are not trying to become the biggest economic and industrial power on the planet in an effort to take over. They are doing it to house and feed 1.4 billion people.

Don't get me wrong. They don't think much of us and have very little reticence to violate treaty, law, ethics or morals in their dealing with others should it benefit them in some measurable way. Just don't underestimate them and don't villainize them beyond what the facts tell us.

In your opinion? Is this an educated opinion, or one based on a fantasy world you've created?

China steals technology. It was doing it under Trump, under Obama, under Bush, under Clinton. Why is it the only Biden is getting schooled?

China is doing what the US did. It goes out there and takes and steals to get what it wants. China is literally following the US way of becomes the great evil.

Yeah, any evidence of this?

You are a joke. China's smaller spending on their military is largely due to theft of military IP from countries like the US and Russia, saving China trillions of dollars worth of research and development costs.

Theft has fueled China's military growth:

Just one year of US defense R&D spending:

"Pentagon seeks $104.29 billion military research budget for 2020 -- an increase of 8.7 percent"​




From 2019:

From 2017:

From 2015:

Here is what the Russians say:

"Russian concern over China’s reverse engineering contributed to a rapid decline in arms sales between the two countries in the mid-2000s. Whereas China accounted for 60% of Russian arms exports in 2005, the figure fell to 8.7% by 2012.""


"“Unauthorized copying of our equipment abroad is a huge problem. There have been 500 such cases over the past 17 years. China alone has copied aircraft engines, Sukhoi planes, deck jets, air defense systems, portable air defense missiles, and analogues of the Pantsir medium-range surface-to-air systems,” said Yevgeny Livadny, Rostec’s chief of intellectual property projects."

China's lower spending on military is due to their decision to invest in themselves rather than attempting to militarily dominate the world. Their success at home has given them the option to begin targeted military imperialism in places like the Spratly Islands and the development of advanced military technology, like the J20 and advanced submarines and carriers like the 09V attack sub and Type 003 carrier. Their military budget is still a fraction of ours. In total, last year they spent 28% as much as the US did on their military. As a per capita expenditure, they spent 6.56% of what the US spends on their military per person.

China incarcerates over a million of its citizens, who have committed no crime whatsoever. Many of those same citizens are tortured raped, put through forced sterilization and used as slave labor. China does not care about its citizens.

China doesn't care about its citizens.

Chinese government steals land and homes from its citizens:

"Selling land is a major revenue source for nearly all Chinese local governments. Cash-strapped and often heavily indebted from construction projects, local governments reached a record volume of land sales last year as China's economic growth began to slow."

"But by "fantasizing about the riches" that land development brings, He Xuefeng, an expert on rural China who teaches at Wuhan University, wrote last month, lower-level government officials "cannot help but scheme about how to take rural land from villagers, thus bringing about an unnecessary ordeal to both the countryside and its residents.""
