Biden plays down human rights and talks of climate change with communist dictator Xi Jinping
"I absolutely believe there's need not be a new Cold War," Biden said. "I've met many times with Xi Jinping and we were candid and clear with one another across the board. And I do not think there's any imminent attempt on the part of China to invade Taiwan."



It's all clear now. Our leader, Joe Biden met with Xi Jinping and looked into his eyes and got the assurance that we all needed:


"I absolutely believe there's need not be a new Cold War," Biden said. "I've met many times with Xi Jinping and we were candid and clear with one another across the board. And I do not think there's any imminent attempt on the part of China to invade Taiwan." 

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-says-xi-meeting-doesnt-believe-imminent-attempt-china-invade-taiwan

Human rights were not mentioned. Biden feels that the US and China should work together on “climate changes” and “food insecurity.” Biden says both sides agreed and the details will be worked out by the appropriate people.

Hong Kong’s  South China Morning Post   reported  that the White House had denied that Xi and Biden would release a joint statement after their conversation.

There is simply no need for it. Biden went to china, sat down with Xi and is now assured that China will not invade Taiwan. It was only a month ago that Xi was granted an extension of his term by the Communist Party Congress. Notable at that event was China's former president Hu Jintao being violently dragged out of Great Hall of the People. Hu hasn'y been seen since. Biden congradulated Xi on his "reelection."  

"You were kind enough to call me to congratulate me, and I congratulate you as well."

What was missing from the discussion was any mention by Xi of climate change or the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, which began in Wuhan, China, in 2019.  There is now mounting evidence  by the U.S. State Department, indicating a potential accident at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which could have triggered the crisis.

"violently being dragged out"?????

I watched on live TV as he was being gently helped out when obviously he appeared to be in distress.  You see, Vic, when I read bullshit statements like that, I consider that the whole story is just a piece of shit, which was posted for two reasons, to discredit Biden and to encourage hatred of China.

"Gently helped"? I don't know what the CCP allowed you to watch, but it wasn't what the free world saw. Hu Jintao wasn't allowed to keep his folder, and all of the men at the table didn't (couldn't?) look at him as two of Xi's men hoisted a reluctant Hu Jintao out of his chair. BTW ... Hu Jintao didn't have any trouble walking.  

I don't know if you're allowed to watch BBC videos via You Tube, but here's one that showed everything that happened when media were allowed to enter. Maybe you can find it on BBC. I've included the BBC's commentary so you can, at least, read that. If you'd like to read comments, I'll copy/paste them in a PM.

China’s former leader Hu Jintao was led out of the Communist Party congress in Beijing, shortly after reporters were allowed in. The unexpected moment led to intense speculation. Chinese state media reported that Hu Jintao "was not feeling well" during the session and was taken to a meeting room "for a rest". Some have questioned this explanation.

So, the CCP told its citizens and residents that Hu Jintao wasn't "feeling well". ROFL!

Since this topic came up I have done some research on the issue and I agree that he was removed from the scene against his will.  The reason I responded to it was that although I had watched the scenario actually happening in real time, I did not remember his being "violently dragged out" and that incendiary language may have triggered my resistance to remembering what actually had happened.  Therefore I repeat, yes, I believe he was removed against his will, and personally I think it was because the powers that be there believed he was going to make a disruptive scene, but he was not "violently dragged out".  That language was unnecessary and intentionally incendiary.

He was distressed all right.

He was distressed at why he was being forced to leave. 

He was distressed why no one was standing up to help him resist.

He was distressed because very few even bothered to look at him; and those that did were more in amusement.

He was distressed because he knows what happens to those that are forced to leave. Look for announcement of his tragic death due to some ailment very soon.

Why would Xi be happy?  Not only has Biden kept Trump's trade war going but he has added to it.  Biden's administration has done much more to incite the Taiwan issue than Trump and his administration had notwithstanding Biden's ridiculous continuing to say he is complying with the “one China” policy guided by the Taiwan Relations Act, the Three Joint Communiques"  while at the same time also saying the contrary statement that America would defend Taiwan and sailing American warships through the Taiwan Straits.

Because Biden is soft on China. Biden also got rid of a planned Trump policicy that would have forced American universities to reveal cooperation with chapters of the Confucius Institute.

Biden is extremely soft on China, and Xi knows it. Thanks to the evidence found on his son's "laptop from hell" that Twitter, Facebook, and left-wing media suppressed prior to his election but has since been exposed, we now know that Biden and his family made millions of dollars in illicit dealings with China (and other countries) while Biden was vice-president. Joe Biden is, basically, Xi's puppet and has to do whatever Xi tells him to do.

We were warned decades ago by a lone voice:

"Our biggest long-term challenge will be China....The Clinton administration, like the Bush administration, follows a policy of "constructive engagement" with China. When China disappoints expectations and ignores lofty lectures, we issue a few condemnations, hammer out some meaningless resolution at the UN (if we can get it by China's UN delegation), and call upon them to comport themselves like citizens of the community of nations. Then we get back down to business as if nothing happened. How's this policy working? It isn't."

  • Biden obsessing about climate change while China builds coal plants and controls our antibiotics and lithium batteries.
  • No mention of Covid origin in Wuhan lab.
  • No mention of Chinese-manufactured Fentanyl which murders 300 Americans per day.
  • No mention of forced labor and genocide of the Uyghurs.

Another striking moment was their body language. Xi showed strength by making old man Biden walk all the way across the stage with his hand outstretched.

If Biden was really concerned about climate change, he (and the rest of the G20) could have exponentially reduced carbon footprints by doing a Zoom call like they all made us do for over 2 long Covid years.

"I've met many times with Xi Jinping and we were candid and clear with one another across the board.

What makes him think Xi was “candid and clear” with him? I have no doubt that Biden said whatever was on his mind. The guy has never had a filter. But from what I can see, Xi is one of the most powerful and prolific liars on Earth. I wouldn’t believe him if he said the sun came up in the East.

Human rights were not mentioned.

"As reporters were ushered out of the room, a TV producer called out a question asking if Biden would raise the issue of human rights in China. A man from the Chinese side then pulled the producer backwards, causing her to lose her balance."

"Human rights were not mentioned."

Actually, it's a good thing, because maybe Xi would have talked about America's human rights record, including a half-million or so (and increasing) homeless people, or America's highest rate of incarceration in the world where in many cases prisoners are subject to forced labour, or racial and religious prejudice, or about separating migrant children from their parents and putting them into cages like animals, or the human rights of the victims and their grieving families of unbelievably massive gun violence, etc. etc. etc. 

As I said above, every nation has its warts and maybe shouldn't throw stones at others..

Of course, of course.  Hitler did the same thing.  But I guess Winnie the Pooh was too busy publicly dressing down Justin Trudeau to bother attacking someone who wouldn't remember what happened tomorrow anyway. 

very nation has its warts and maybe shouldn't throw stones at others.

So in your view, since every country has warts, it would have been wrong for any other country to criticize Nazi Germany. Or someone who jaywalked once has no right to criticize a mass murderer. They both broke the law!

You should look up the moral equivalence fallacy.

It took 10 years but China has eradicated abject poverty.  I have never seen a person begging here.  Virtually every family has a decent roof over their heads, good food on the table, free education for their kids to high school graduation and adequate health care.  Keep in mind that tradition here is ancient, and families are cohesive - people are more concerned about their families and others than they are about themselves.  In many countries the economy is more important than the good of the people, but in China the good of the people is more important than the economy.

Yesss but that depends on their interpretation of poverty...by our standards many are still living in it.

Especially out in the rural areas where they do it bloody tough. Many parents leave their kids behind to live with the grand parents so they can go and seek work in the cities...the elderly are really struggling in tiny villages and many still don't have reliable power or running water...

Saw an excellent documentary here a couple years back made by a Chinese crew was shown on SBS here..will try and find it.

Now back to homeless people. So there are no people living in the streets, door ways or under bridges in the huge cities over there?Every single person in China has a roof over their heads?

As I've said, except for the photo I took below more than a decade ago of a man who was resting beside his cart during lunch time, and as you can see he is a working man, I have never seen anyone sleeping on the streets, in doorways but I must admit I've never looked under a bridge.  That man collects cardboard and sells it to a recycling company, and he makes an adequate living doing so.  Even my wife bundles up our cardboard and sells it.  I believe China has eradicated abject poverty.  I posted an explanation of abject poverty as a link in my reply to GregTx.

I think you will find this helpful - the United Nations has commended China on its eradication of abject poverty.

China's elimination of abject poverty went a long way towards ending poverty worldwide , which is one of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), said Beate Trankmann, UNDP resident representative in China, in a recent interview.

For decades now, US presidents pursued China with the thought that economic and cultural ties would lead to a shift toward a Western-style democratic system.

In the last few years, the US has ramped up pressure on China across economic, diplomatic and military fronts that started with Trump and continued under Biden.

Where did that occur? The despicable, atrocious practice of lynching Black people occurred in many countries other than the US for many centuries - England, Mexico, Brazil, S. Africa, Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Haiti, to name a few. Asians have been lynched as recently as the 1990s in Asian countries.

Did you know that white people were lynched as recently as 1933? Here's a Getty Image/Library of Congress photo of two white men in San Jose, CA.

Your image looks like it's from another time/location, as you said.

For over a decade, I've used DuckDuckGo as my search engine, and I highly recommend it, because it offers far more privacy, security, accuracy, and options than others.

Here are two articles about the San Jose (1933) lynching. You'll find the photo that I posted in comment 9.1.2 in the first one. Both mentioned that the men were stripped of clothing, which aligns with the Getty/Library of Congress image I posted.     

The main point I was making in 9.1.2 was that white people were also lynched in the US.
