Joe Biden: Our First Chinese President
An exclusive excerpt from A. J. Rice's new book The Woking Dead
Note: This excerpt was taken from A.J. Rice’s latest book The Woking Dead: How Society's Vogue Virus Destroys Our Culture which is published by Post Hill Press. A.J. Rice is CEO of Publius PR, a premier communications firm in Washington D.C. He served as the executive producer to Laura Ingraham for four years, and Monica Crowley for two years. Following that, he produced an investigative news show at The Washington Times for John Solomon for three years called America’s Morning News, and later was brought in by Glenn Beck’s team to help launch The Blaze Radio Network.
Joe Biden may be the first American president to go to Tokyo to defend China — but that’s what he’s done.
Recall that earlier this year, Beijing flew a spy balloon right over US territory, including sensitive military installations. It crossed the entire continent, during which time it was gathering sensitive intelligence and presumably phoning all of it home to its communist masters in China.
Biden waited til it had flown from coast to coast before allowing it to be shot down.
Then this past weekend while on a trip to visit our closest allies, who are threatened by Xi Jinping’s ambitions, he downplayed the whole thing as “silly,” practically apologizing to China. China’s reply was curt as usual, asking the whole world if Biden’s words mean anything at all.
The media, for its part, won’t make all of this what it is — which is the weakest performance on the world stage by an American president in decades if not ever. Even Jimmy Carter probably would’ve shot that balloon down before it beamed its intel back.
It’s not the first time the media has run interference for Biden while he’s doing a solid for China. The man has a curious relationship with the nation that most openly and directly threatens the United States, and the media has gotten into the very bad habit of never calling him on it. Recall that Biden’s very presidency may not have happened at all if the media had not censored the most important story ever published about how the Biden family has become so wealthy while he’s been a senator for one-fourth of the existence of the republic. The media also rolled in its information warfare tanks to crush a key challenge during the 2020 election: the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop he abandoned at a repair shop. Media openly declared that it was a non-story from the start, a waste of time, not even worth discussing.
Or even that it was Russian disinformation — Biden himself said that one.
It’s a huge story. Emails on that laptop provided conclusive proof that Hunter Biden has a very cozy and very lucrative relationship with CEFC, a Chinese energy company with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party. Through Hunter, Joe Biden himself makes millions selling his positions and influence to the Chinese. China also buys Joe’s silence on its behavior and crimes.
Now, that sounds like an important story worth reporting, right? But it was all but impossible to find it anywhere outside of the New York Post and conservative media. The so-called mainstream in the media has its own lucrative relationship with Beijing. The Eurasian Times reports that “The Los Angeles Times, Seattle Times, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Chicago Tribune, Houston Chronicle and Boston Globe are all listed as clients of China Daily. The Chinese outlet paid the Los Angeles Times $657,523 for printing services, according to the FARA filings.” Those outlets join the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal at the communist feeding trough. Imagine the influence that money buys in media that are always fighting the erosion of their audiences and are one bad quarter away from mass layoffs. And that’s without the threat that AI now poses to newsrooms around the world.
China Daily is communist China’s number one propaganda outlet worldwide. Owned by the communists who rule China, it doesn’t quite own the media outlets named above, but it sure knows how to rent them — and buy their silence about China and Joe Biden. China Daily wins in the US media in two ways: It publishes its inserts which look like news stories but are actually communist spin, and it pays US media to run them. The communists are using what’s left of the media’s capitalism against it, and more importantly, against the American people who never suspect they’re reading communist agitprop in the Houston Chronicle. According to Freedom House, China has bought and rented media worldwide to broadcast its propaganda -- reportedly spending $1.3 billion per year. Joe Biden wins every time an edition of any paper comes off the presses that don’t mention the river of money flowing his way from China.
President Trump spent four years calling China out for this and its other sins and crimes. He fought and won trade wars against them. He (and to be fair, the Chinese coronavirus pandemic) convinced our allies around the world to move their factories and other investments from China to other, more open countries. When the communists subsumed Hong Kong and destroyed its civil rights, Trump called them out again and ended the special trade privileges the communists used to pass cash and investment back and forth.
Joe Biden will do none of that. China now openly spies on us and rattles its saber at Taiwan. Biden has consistently downplayed China and dismissed its intentions and goals. In May of 2019, Biden told supporters that China is no economic threat to the United States, despite the fact that it has stolen American manufacturing jobs and intellectual property for decades and become the world’s second-largest economy along the way.
“China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man. I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what? They’re not competition for us,” Biden told an audience in Iowa.
Leaders in both parties found his comments appalling.
In September 2020, Biden again went to bat for China, declaring that Russia, not China, is the greatest threat to US elections and politics. Biden was citing the discredited lie that Russia colluded with the Trump campaign to steal the 2016 election. But consider this: Russia did spend a few hundred thousand dollars on Facebook ads and trolls during that election, some of it after Election Day. China through its China Daily media buys has spent about $19 million. China’s spending dwarfs Russia’s, because it can afford to and Russia can’t. Russia can’t spend so much in part because Trump’s support for fracking made American energy cheaper and Russia’s less relevant. People like Joe Biden keep selling American workers out to China.
And Biden declared his intention to ban fracking, too. That would help China and Russia while hurting America.
China has also reached parity with the United States in its foreign aid spending. In 2017, NPR (which deep-sixed the facts about Hunter Biden’s corrupt relationship with Beijing) reported that China spent $354.3 billion on its foreign aid “Belt and Road” program from 2000 to 2014. The United States spent $394.6 billion on foreign aid during the same period. That’s not much of a gap. No other nation comes close to the US and China in spending on projects and development in foreign countries. But Biden says they’re no competition for the United States.
China’s “Belt and Road” is really a debt trap. China uses the wealth it generates from being the world’s manufacturing hub to loan money to cash-strapped countries to build infrastructure, but the fine print reveals heavy and unfair terms. Countries that accept Chinese funds find themselves under Beijing’s thumb — and out of the American sphere of influence. China’s financial web is meant to trap smaller countries and pull them its way while blocking America out. This is only good for China, no one else. But you’ll never hear any of this from Joe Biden.
You’ll also never hear anything about the Thousand Talents Plan from Joe Biden. According to the US Senate’s 2019 report, through that trillion-dollar plan — yes, trillion dollars — China buys some of America’s top researchers at some of our top universities and labs so they’ll pass information to jump-start Chinese research in key cutting-edge fields. And of course, this research gets weaponized: it goes to the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. Trump’s administration was finding these traitors and prosecuting them. Biden will probably bring them into his administration.
You’ll never hear Joe Biden address this industrial espionage, or the concentration camps China runs, or the threat it is now posing to its neighbors including India, Japan, South Korea, and the aforementioned democratic Taiwan. Because China owns Joe Biden, as the emails on his son Hunter’s laptop reveal. And China rents the US media to keep their mouths shut.
It’s all adding up year after year. Joe Biden is our first Chinese president. Or at the very least, he’s a wholly-owned subsidiary of China, Inc. His actions while president prove this beyond all doubt.
