The Morning Rant

It's kind of weird how most of the MSM reporting lately sounds like it could've been written by Chinese state media. Despite the fact that China lied to the world about the origins of the coronavirus and the extent of its spread.

Everybody has known for a long time that:

--China spies

--China's human rights record is abysmal

--Chinese tech can’t be trusted

--China buys politicians in other countries.

--China plays dirty

--China steals tech and intellectual property

--China launders money

--China corrupts our universities

But the stunning and brave journalists in our MSM appear to be mostly silent on these things. In fact, the only one who appears to want to push back against manifold Chinese aggression is Donald Trump. While they were shrieking RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA for over three years, Trump has been shouting CHINA CHINA CHINA.

I touched on this in the book thread a while back. Some time before he ran for office, Trump was asked to list some of his favorite books, and it turned out that a surprisingly large number of them were about Chinese history, culture, and business practices. In other words, he realized early on that our chief geopolitical rival would be China (and not Russia). So I'd guess that before he was elected, he had acquired a pretty good layman's education on China. In fact, other than classified information such as military data, I wonder how much that Trump receives in the intelligence briefings he is now privy to is either new to him or surprises him.

And he doesn't go out of his way to publicize this. Trump never has any of his aides leak to the press that he really is "scary smaht." It's almost as if he *wants* his enemies to underestimate him.

Regardless, he's obviously light-years ahead of any of the 27-year-old know-nothings in the MSM.
