PELOSI, TAIWAN and the lyin’ White House

IN the Presser yesterday;  John Kelly;

“What’s the drama?” Kirby responded. 

“Have you watched the briefings the last couple of weeks?” Wegmann said. “There’s been this question of whether or not-“

“Yeah, I’ve been here the last couple of weeks. I haven’t seen any drama. I think- I think you’re manufacturing it with your question,” Kirby shot back.”

Z: OH, I don’t know…I think China threatening to shoot down the Speaker of the House of America is pretty dramatic….don’t you?   And she’s supposedly GOING today!

Does the White House EVER stop mischaracterizing and lying?  And have you any thoughts on what China might do and what we’d do if they DID?

    China wants to do what Japan tried to do in the 30s – become the major player in east Asia and turn the Pacific into their private lake.

    Of course any major military conflict with the US would be a disaster for China’s economy, and Xi knows that — we’re their biggest customer.

    Still, the PLA wants to beat the drum and rattle the swords, so I won’t be surprised at some ROCAF pilot pulling some stupid hot-dog stunt and endangering her plane, perhaps even put it in extremis.

    Only an idiot would fire on it, but if one does, the US military is not in good enough shape to take on the ROCN . . . half our ships are old and many are not combat ready. China’s are all basically new and hot to trot. Our only advantage is in nukes, and that’s definitely a no-win for everybody.

    China wants Taiwan, and Xi has no fear of Joey’s administration. Nobody does. I b’lieve, however, that both sides have put themselves in a no-win loss-of-face situation: if she does NOT go, China wins. If she DOES go, China loses face.

    Problem here is that westerners don’t really understand the concept of “face.” It’s paramount in east Asia. Biden doesn’t know enough to be embarrassed if she didn’t go, and even if somebody could explain it to him, his teleprompter writers would spin it off into oblivion.

    Long term, what China wants is to control Taiwan, which means to control the planet’s microchip supply. Additionally, if the ROCN controls the Pacific, it basically dictates the flow and volume of international business and trade. Just imagine the impact of Beijing’s control of computers as well as the Panama Canal.

    The ROCAF or the ROCN will do something about her entry into Taiwan, but it’s not in Xi’s interest to trigger a hot war. I predict a major flyover by ROCAF warplanes and an in-your-face standoff with the Reagan battle group, but no shots fired.

    The ROC wants to continue selling junk to North America while buying up vast swaths of land in strategic points near major US cities. They don’t want to kill us with missiles, but they want to milk us with shoddy, tacky, unreliable goods manufactured by child and slave labor and sold at prices with which our industry can’t compete.

    In the arena of international affairs and diplomacy, the US is playing hardball with a whiffle bat and using an expired 19th century cricket rule book written in Hindi with marginal notes by Somali pirates.

    Kirby, BTW, is a sack of wasted protoplasm who disgraces the Navy uniform, nothing more than a political tool paid to recite the leftist mantra at the cost of American pride and prestige . . . in sum, a shitweasel.

    Personally, I don’t think China has the kung-fu to shoot down Pelosi’s plane. Gutless bastards, all 2 billion of ‘em. Besides, would it work out to China’s advantage to thrill and motivate half of the United States? I think not — but in this universe, you just never know. But no, I think China is all cows and no hat.

    I expect some razzle dazzle from China…. Maybe 90 percent of our medications made in China may not find their way onto a boat… something like what Europe did with Russia…. Beat up Russia then be mad they won’t send them their gas to run their economy… now they will soon be freezing and starving.
    What’s wrong with people?

    I partially agree with what everyone here has said so far. I’m full blooded Japanese, a third generation with parents who were born in the USA but raised in Japan during their childhood.

    In the 1930s, FDR tried to empower the Chinese to be the major player in Asia over all other Asian nations. FDR didn’t want Japan throwing a wrench in his plans, as FDR had vested interests in China, lining his pockets with cash. And yes, there were some stooges in Japan who wanted resources in Asia to be competitive, but they tried to be patient.

    The Democrats are doing what Roosevelt did almost 90 years ago by playing it loose with the propaganda being spread by the media. 0bama repealed the Smith-Mundt Act of 1947 in 2012 to allow the media to be weaponized as an arm of the Democrat Party, as a favor to Crooked Hildebeest Clinton, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. FDR played loosely with the media with plenty of help from William Randolf Hearst, whose sole interest was winning Pulitzer Prizes for stories at the cost of journalistic integrity.

    The Democratic Party’s seeds of corruption continue to sprout. Harry Truman tried to right the ship when he saw what Roosevelt kept hidden from him after he came on as VP in 1945. Truman stopped the media from being weaponized by signing the Smith-Mundt Act into law.

    It seems the Deep State far left Democrats never want to follow what is right, and choose to inflict suffering upon everyone by doing their own evil deeds. Their back room dirty deeds done dirt cheap keep flinging poo. The jackals don’t care about saving their faces. Bidet is a mental midget trying to act like FDR with only 1/1000 of a brain.

    So, she is there…………It’s hard to do, but I give her some credit for not chickening out as Biden clearly was suggesting HE would.
    They’re blaming the Republicans for not going along….they were invited, I’d like to hear more on that. Did she reneg on the invitations we’d heard about…?? TO mike McCaul, I believe??

    I DO believe China has PLENTY of ways to hurt us……..BUNKERVILLE’s suggestion about MEDS is a probability and a horrifying prospect AND, while most of you gripe about BIG PHARMA getting SO RICH, it saves LIVES…and I’d rather their products were made HERE and AMERICANS were working for them and getting jobs and keeping our meds SAFE from the hands of China.

    FOX, I’m not an FDR fan but I know he’s been taught as if he’s a HERO in American schools, and he didn’t do EVERYTHING wrong, of course! And I don’t think the Smith Mundt Act only benefited Dems, I think that, as usual, only Dems took advantage of it…..am I right?
    Terrific COmment, thanks..

    MUSTANG: I hope you’re right. I don’t believe so. We hear such oddities from them…some experts here believe China’s about to fall apart financially, some say their population is dwindling and unsupportive of their economy, etc., but I DO BELIEVE their military is strong….at least in manpower…………
    So far, they’ve done nothing about Pelosi.

    If you think they decide to follow through (and the Xi EGO can’t really stand by after threatening and do ZIP), what do you believe they’ll do?

    Many experts here thought it’d be financial…..not military.

    BUNKERVILLE…I’ve heard the same….our military is woefully weakening ….Chinese men and women are taught to fight, ours are taught to make sure they say the right pronoun…which is joked about a lot, but it’s true, and it’s military-killing. It’s also one of the reasons proud young Americans are choosing NOT to participate in that nonsense and aren’t enlisting in the numbers of the past.

    Cops? dwindling Military? Dwindling Crime Way UP Food dwindling Farmers Suffering
    Politicians? lying (watching Manchin on Faulkner Focus was embarrassing for him this morning…even I was surprised), etc etc etc.

    WE ARE SINKING……….but I’ve got to say:

    PELOSI IS IN TAIWAN AND WHILE THESE WORDS ARE TOUGH; I ADMIRE HER FOR IT. (gASP! iT WAS TOUGH ENOUGH PUTTING A PICTURE OF HER ON MY POST!!_

    Such GOOD comments. I have little to add, but just re-read BP over and over. Again, I mention this is the woman who very publicly unfurled a Tiananmen Square memorial banner IN Tiananmen Square after its history was scrubbed for years. But they softened her up with family favors. I still have a small theory that she could be there to deliver a message TO the Taiwan government. A riddle wrapped in a mystery wrapped inside an enigma. Winston Churchill, 1939, on the intents of the Soviet Union Well, I guess we found out about them. Now .. about her?

    When I first heard about her proposed trip and all the opposition, all I could think was “WHY”? She must know it will rile the Chinese, so why push it? This is especially true given the sad state our military is at the present time as Boco pointed out in detail.
    BTW, I gained some insight about a lot of the events that took place prior to WW ll while I was still in school. I guess we continue learning no matter how old we get.

    BAYSIDER, Right! She was at T SQuare… and very active…I do believe she’s paid to shut up now and that she IS carrying a message.
    Odd that many experts who really know how these things work are blaming the WH for revealing her trip. Nancy was adamant about how her itineraries must be kept silent for safety reasons…but she’s not openly blaming anybody. Oh, what a tangled web we weave…

    Nancy announced recently she will be retiring the end of this term.
    GOOD! She probably doesn’t want to be further embarrassed by losing.

    No! I have never seen a picture of her young….but haven’t looked for it! Yes, “loooong enuf!”
    Awful little woman. Can’t imagine JFK would have thought her future would be what it has been!

    Let’s see what happens to her husband today…..they’re saying not only was he drunk but had some drug in his system which I suspect isn’t a ‘health’ drug or they’d not have mentioned it. He handed the cops a ‘get out of jail card’ when arrested! I have to admit I have relatives who had one of those cards, too 🙂 $$$$$$ Did you all know they suddenly changed his judge hearing him today to a Democrat with VERY little experirence..? They changed, I think I heard, YESTERDAY..just in time to control her!!

    THanks, BAYSIDER

    WOW. How long has it been since JFK was assassinated? Was it in 1963? Whatever, she’s waaaay past her expiration date. Re: JFK, I recall a lot was made at the time he ran because he was the first Catholic president and some feared he might divulge classified information to the Pope. We’ve come a long way since then, haven’t we?
