Seems like the Dems are looking for just about anything to distract from their self-created chaos on the home front.
Either that, or they are chomping at the bit for yet another international conflict for some unknown reason.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi already rattled Beijing’s cage by recently landing in Taiwan for little more than a self-promotional, theatrical appearance.
Or, as some savvy online commentators noted, to check in on her husband’s investment, as he purchased a prolific number of shares in a Taiwanese semiconductor company before Pelosi’s visit, as well as before a bill that favored subsidies for semiconductors was passed.
How convenient it is to be married to the House Speaker when one is an investor.
Apparently, Pelosi’s visit wasn’t sufficiently inflammatory, as now even more Democrats have made a surprise visit to the island, sparking Beijing’s fury.
As reported by The Daily Wire, a group of five U.S. legislators arrived in Taiwan within days of Pelosi’s highly controversial visit to the contested island.
Four of the five lawmakers were Democrats, with Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts serving as the leader of the unexpected delegation.
The jaunt to Taiwan occurred just after the Democrat senator’s visit to South Korea, where he met with South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and reaffirmed the United-States-South Korea Alliance.
“The U.S.-South Korea alliance is based on shared values and interests – from nuclear disarmament to the fight against climate change, and our commitment to this important relationship is stronger than ever,” Markey proclaimed.
Oh yeah, good luck achieving nuclear disarmament with Russia and China.
Note to Democrats: Instigating another war is not an optimal way to “fight against climate change,” though a war would certainly serve to divide and distract, what Democrats generally do best.
“Through my meetings with President Yoon and other senior government officials, it was evident that our two countries are prepared to meet existential and pressing global challenges head-on,” Markey continued.
Too bad such “existential and pressing global challenges” always seem to veer towards war in the case of Democrats, who apparently couldn’t stand the relative peace on the international front under Trump’s leadership.
“The size, diversity, and lethality of North Korea’s weapons continues to grow, as does its threat to our allies in the region,” Markey continued, “in my meetings and my visit to the DMZ, we discussed how to continue multilateral pressure and diplomatic efforts to reach a solution that ensures the American people and our allies are safe from a nuclear Kim regime.”
Here’s a hint: One way to keep the American people safe is to have a president who isn’t constantly asleep at the helm.
One who is actually photographed sleeping during major international events, as Biden was during the COP26 Climate Summit speeches.
Apparently, Biden’s alleged passion for the environment, the main topic of the COP26 speeches, puts him to sleep.
Moreover, in light of the rather unflattering GOP report that was just released regarding the White House’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, Dems may want to think twice before irritating another world power.
“On April 14, 2021, President Joe Biden announced his decision to unconditionally withdraw all U.S. military personnel from Afghanistan by September 11, 2021,” the report began.
“His” decision. That’s generous commentary.
A more accurate description would have been “His puppet masters’ decision.”
“Over the following four months, the administration repeatedly delayed critical action that was necessary to mitigate the likely consequences of the decision,” the report continued, “the result of their inaction was a chaotic Non-combatant Evacuation Operation where 13 U.S. servicemembers lost their lives and more than 800 Americans were abandoned behind enemy lines.”
Even worse, a preventable tragedy.
One can only hope that the Democrats are not trying to spark another tragedy now with curiously timed visits before Taiwan, which could spark a serious crisis before the midterm elections.
