We are witnessing the fast track of the decline of American exceptionalism.
We were slowly, but steadily, hurling toward this for some time now but managed to keep the wolves at bay with our pesky patriotism and hereditary entrepreneurial spirit. Americans’ ability to grow a middle class despite terrible policies makes us special.
Americans also had President Donald Trump. He saw that Americans were hurting. We needed a strong, firm hand to hold off the domestic and international wolves at bay. He fought them so we could come in like the middle-class builders we are and create a booming economy. We had jobs, and our families were going on vacations again.
President Trump flew to China and stood up to them. We stood our ground and helped bring millions of manufacturing jobs back to the United States. China knew that idle threats weren’t on the horizon; neither were special backroom deals that sold American’s intellectual property for board seats and kickbacks.
All of this changed when Biden was installed into office on January 20th in the dead of night. Just two months ago, DNI Ratcliffe told the public that China interfered in the 2020 election. Hunter Biden’s laptop alone should have disqualified anyone in his family from holding office. China gave the BHR Partners $1.5 Billion in 2014. How much of that made it into the Biden family war chest?

Biden – who has trouble reading from a teleprompter – sent his Secretary of State Blinken to Alaska to meet with a Chinese delegation. The Chinese know we are in a weak position. We spent 2020 tearing ourselves apart, and China sat back and ingested the entire show. The entire Biden administration is excited to make any exceptions to foreign policy that China asks of us, yet they treat America with extreme disrespect. You would think that Biden would be able to handle China better with all the business his family has done there.
The Chinese delegation was criticized by Sec. Blinken and I say ‘criticized, but the reality is more like an accidental bump when you pass someone on the street. The head of the Chinese delegation knows everything that’s been going on publically in America in 2020 and behind the scenes with the Biden family and China. Hence, he responds to the perceived slight saying, “Many people within the U.S. actually have little confidence in the democracy of the United States.”
With zero push back from weak Sec. Blinken, the Chinese diplomat then has the audacity to bring up the hyper-inflated race issues going on in America. Saying that black Americans are slaughter in America. He then tells Blinken that the United States government shouldn’t lecture China on social issues (i.e., China’s actual genocide of the Uyghurs) because America can’t speak from “a position of strength.”
It’s obvious that China has no interest in pretending that America has the stronger hand. They own Biden and our government; they know it. When China disrespected America yesterday, Biden should have recalled his delegation, but he didn’t. Biden kept them there to continue to be disrespected by China. Biden doesn’t protect the people that actively support him. He isn’t going to protect America.
