Those who wondered why China chose to give $1.5 billion to Joe Biden’s son Hunter need wonder no more. Three executive orders issued during his first week in the White House made clear the payback Biden is giving China in return for its generosity to his family.
1) Biden repealed President Trump’s order that banned investments and materials from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in America’s electric power grid.
Trumps order noted that “foreign adversaries are increasingly creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in the United States bulk-power system.”
He explained that “unrestricted acquisition or use in the United States of bulk-power system electric equipment designed, developed, manufactured, or supplied by persons owned by, controlled by, or subject to the jurisdiction or direction of foreign adversaries augments the ability of foreign adversaries to create and exploit vulnerabilities in bulk-power system electric equipment, with potentially catastrophic effects.”
On January 16th, the week before Biden’s inauguration, Trumps’ secretary of energy Dan Roulette supplemented the order to prohibit utilities that supply electricity to critical defense facilities from doing business with the CCP.
2) A week later Biden ordered US officials from calling the Covid19 epidemic “the China virus” as former president Trump accurately called it. The virus was developed, released, and concealed by China, so the phrase was completely appropriate.
3) Biden also killed the Keystone pipeline this week. China opposes the pipeline because it sends Canadian oil to the United States. If the pipeline is not completed, China will likely get the oil instead of us. The oil now earmarked for Keystone would go to Canadian Pacific Ocean ports to be shipped to China.
Why on Earth would Biden issue these orders, especially in a week when the Chinese air force flew incursions into Taiwanese air space, a move that would normally have led to American condemnation and a response?
Biden’s executive order on the power grid was issued with no explanation or justification, so we can only speculate.
Could these orders be partial payback for China’s bribes to Hunter?
China manifested its demands for a radical change in US policy in a speech by China’s president, Xi Jinping, delivered on Biden’s inauguration week. He warned of a “new cold war” unless Biden reverses the “protectionist policies of his predecessor, Donald Trump.”
The decoding of President Xi’s speech should read: “Its time to pay the piper.”
