National Security

Is the Biden Family Being Blackmailed By China And Russia?

It's a distinct possibility.

The Biden family has extensive business relations with China. They also have large business interests in Ukraine. Are the Chinese using their relationship with the Bidens to manipulate American policy? Are they in possession of information the Biden family does not want made public?

Does Vladimir Putin, given his intelligence service’s penetration into Ukraine, have similar data on the Biden clan? Is he playing Biden too? Is that why Biden is so weak when confronted by challenges from these adversaries? James Carafano, of the Heritage Foundation, shows the consequences of this possible national security compromise: An America under the thumb of China and Russia.

Carafano: No one, least of all President Joe Biden, wants America’s enemies to conduct a crippling sneak attack on the U.S. homeland. But the president’s foreign policy has thus far been so inept, the chances of that happening are rising.

I’m not saying that China or Russia or Iran will be tempted to coldcock the United States of America in the near future. Why should they? Biden’s polices are working for them. Already he’s made concessions to our adversaries without even being asked. He granted Iran sanctions relief without an Iran deal. He withdrew U.S. objections to Nord Stream II, the new energy pipeline from Russia to Germany that makes Europe more energy dependent on Moscow, giving the Kremlin a major weapon for coercing and cowing our friends and allies “over there.”

Do you support individual military members being able to opt out of getting the COVID vaccine?

In addition to refusing to challenge Beijing on the origins of the global COVID pandemic, the president has requested a defense budget that won’t even cover the cost of inflation. Meanwhile, Beijing continues its massive military buildup, which has already created the largest navy in the world and is testing hypersonic nuclear weapons capable of orbiting the earth and striking anywhere.

Meanwhile, Biden’s domestic policies have done nothing to strengthen the home front. He has divided the American people, pitting the vaccinated against the unvaccinated, Black against White and blue states against red.

He has turned the economy into a dumpster fire with raging inflation, constrained energy supplies, sluggish job growth and excessive COVID restrictions. And his open border policies have left the U.S. far more vulnerable to infiltration by terrorists, narco-traffickers and other security risks. If you’re an adversary who wants to see America taken down a notch or two, you’ll look at what Biden is doing and say, “What’s not to like?” It must feel like they are playing high-stakes poker with the world’s worst poker player. Why wouldn’t they think, “Hey, let’s just keep this game going!”

All that said, there are potential Pearl Harbors in America’s future. One could come from transnational terrorists who got a tremendous boost from Biden’s humiliating and disastrous retreat from Afghanistan. After decades of humiliation following 9/11, they may feel that their only real redemption lies in hammering American with another 9/11 as soon as possible.

There is also the rising prospect that America’s adversaries see our military as being so weakened that the time to put us away is drawing close. That’s unlikely in the next four years. But the recent Index of U.S. Military Strength suggests the armed forces is slipping under Biden. The military is unlikely to get better, more likely it will gradually get worse, but not that bad. Eight years of this, however—basically another prolonged dose of defense policy like we had under President Obama—and, well, maybe America will be that weak.

David Kamioner pushes all the right buttons, but I believe he is underestimating the sense of hatred for America that “some” of our adversaries proclaim.
Placing too much focus on the Communist bloc may avert some silly confrontations, but whilst engaged on that “front” the islamists will not hesitate to take whatever advantage they perceive – and whatever weakness becomes apparent WILL be gleefully exploited. Countries whose national TV and Radio Stations joyfully broadcast “Death to America” on a regular daily basis deserve more attention than the Biden “Administration” is capable of providing – even if it were willing to do so.
Unfortunately the present inhabitant of the White House has like-minded idiots well-placed in the Pentagon – so at the end of the day it comes down to Glod Bless ( Help ) America – no one else cares !

I thought it was obvious during the campaign that Joe had dementia problems. Why would a family support propping him up out there? I think a “group” realized their “ties” (especially Hunter, but Joe’s brother, as well) with China, Russia and others – family could not have gotten wealthy selling his office, influence, leverage without him “knowing” as he claimed! The “group” agreed to do all the hard work, family props him up and gets him ready and handlers have him ready to “go out and read his lines”! In the meantime, how much incriminating info do those foreign entities have on him and/or his family??? If we had elected an acknowledged “enemy of the people” he/she could not have done more damage to this country in less than one year!! And under cover, it may be much, much worse!!
