    Surge Summary: China’s first negotiations with U.S. officials under Joe Biden on American territory did not generate confidence. The “Middle Kingdom” rebuffed U.S. attempts to bolster human rights in their nation – and Chinese catastrophic misfeasance regarding COVID-19 was never mentioned.

    by Gary Bauer

    A little over a year ago, top Chinese officials came to Washington, D.C., hat in hand to sign a trade deal they hated.  They did so because Donald Trump made it clear that the days of America being taken for suckers were over.

    Contrast that to how the Chinese communists walked into [Thursday]’s negotiations on our territory.  They claimed that communist China speaks for the world, not America.

    When U.S. officials raised concerns about the communist regime’s crackdown on Hong Kong and its genocide against ethnic Muslim Uyghurs, Beijing’s lead diplomat shot back:

    “China is firmly opposed to U.S. interference in China’s internal affairs. . . On human rights, we hope the United States will do better. . . There are many problems within the United States regarding human rights. . . The challenges facing the United States in human rights are deep-seated.  They did not just emerge over the past four years, such as ‘Black Lives Matter.'”

    He went on to claim that American blacks were being “slaughtered.”  Well, at least the Chinese communists and the Biden Administration found one thing they could agree on.  They both cite the Black Lives Matter movement as proof that America is evil.

    But I wonder why we never hear about the “Uyghur Lives Matter” movement in communist China.  Of course, no such movement exists.  It isn’t allowed to exist.  And if the communist dictators in Beijing get their way, the Uyghurs may not exist for much longer!

    I don’t know where this is going, but I wouldn’t be surprised if communist China and the Biden Administration announced some agreement to help both sides save face, likely pledges to fight COVID-19 and climate change.  That’s really all President Biden wants our relationship with communist China to be about.  And that’s also what communist China wants.

    It doesn’t want to address “internal matters” of Hong Kong, Taiwan, religious persecution or genocide.  It doesn’t want to talk about national security threats, cyberwarfare, espionage and intellectual property theft.  But communist China is happy to talk about climate change.

    What Didn’t Come Up

    In the litany of things we raised with the communist Chinese, I saw no mention of COVID.  That alone tells you that the Biden Administration has no courage and no logical policy.

    Let me repeat what we do know.  The virus began in Wuhan, China.  China’s communist officials knew early on it was deadly.  They lied to the world about the danger of human-to-human transmission, and they got the World Health Organization to lie too.

    And while communist China was lying to us, it was cornering the market on medical supplies that they knew everyone would need once the world understood the danger.

    While they knew how dangerous the virus was, they locked down Wuhan and stopped travel inside China, but allowed international travel to celebrate the Chinese New Year. (Here and here.)  They seeded the world with the coronavirus.

    They wrecked Western economies, and caused us to go dangerously into debt.  While they did all this, they had the extra bonus of contributing to Donald Trump’s defeat and the election of their preferred candidate, Joe Biden.
