Joe Biden wants you to know that Russia is our biggest threat as far as foreign adversaries go. That’s probably a surprise to Mitt Romney, who Biden relentlessly mocked back in 2012 for describing Russia as our largest “geopolitical” enemy. Of course, that all happened while the Obama administration was busy fluffing Putin and trying to make a deal with their allies in Iran.

On Russia, the turnaround here is just amazing. It wasn’t until the Democrats believed they could use Putin as a bludgeon against Donald Trump that they suddenly decided he was bad. Let’s recall that before that, the Obama administration handed Crimea to the dictator on a platter. Joe Biden also had his hands all in a deal to cede Syrian policy to the Russians after Obama fecklessly refused to enforce his “red line” on the use of chemical weapons. No one is more excited about a possible Biden presidency than Vladimir Putin.
But it wasn’t Biden’s comments on Russia that I found most noteworthy. Instead, it was his description of China as just a “competitor” that gave the game away. China is not a competitor like Amazon is to Wal-Mart. They are the most capable, dangerous foe in the world and it’s not even close. To describe them as anything other than that is deeply revealing about just how compromised the Bidens are.
We already know the Biden family has deep financial ties to the communist country, and it’s clearly influencing his political stance toward them. Unlike President Trump, where numerous investigations showed no ties to Russia financially, the Bidens took a $5M interest-free “loan” from a state-controlled bank in China, among many other connections. It’s unclear whether that money was paid back after the cash hit Hunter Biden’s shell company. I’d guess not.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Biden has decided to prop up China. He’s been doing his entire career. Tom Cotton wrote a blistering op-ed some months back detailing that and how damaging it has been to American foreign policy. It’s one thing for Biden to be continually wrong about nearly every major foreign policy issue of the last 40 years. It’s another for him to actively assist our largest foreign adversary because his son is busy picking up bags of money.
To be sure, China is absolutely the biggest threat to the United States now and will be well into the future. Anyone still claiming Russia represents even a quarter of the viable threat is gaslighting. Russia is a 3rd world economy that rattles it’s busted and beaten saber. China is far, far more dangerous, and far, far more capable.
Add this to the long list of reasons he can’t be elected president. Handing American interests over the Iranians and Chinese will have a profoundly negative impact on the future of this country. Vote accordingly.
