China's State Media Declares It Will Meddle in the US Election Against Trump

Biden has repeatedly said that China is not a threat and that America should not blame China for covid.

Is Biden colluding with China, given that China is openly declaring they will interfere with our elections on his behalf?

It's silly to even ask the question because we know no one in the media will.

I would like to see Trump appoint a special counsel, though.

Like, you know: An insurance policy.

China is threatening to meddle in the upcoming U.S. presidential election as retribution for a flurry of American lawsuits seeking to hold Beijing accountable for the spread of the coronavirus.

The Communist Party "won't just strike back symbolically, but will impose countermeasures that will make them feel pain," according to the Global Times, an outlet controlled by the regime.

The threats come as outrage grows over China's handling of the coronavirus outbreak in the country and the subsequent global spread of the virus.

China also is threatening to sanction several leading Republican senators, including Tom Cotton (Ark.) and Josh Hawley (Mo.), for their efforts to hold the country responsible.

It should be noted that many corporate-funded GOP Establishment politicians are well paid by the China Lobby, too.

Are they paid well enough to remain perfectly silent when China threatens two of their fellow Senators?

Apparently so!

Speaking of people married to the China Lobby, turns out that Mitch McConnell isn't interested in fighting the coup efforts.

Could that be because he's a GOPer who wants to protect the China Lobby from the Bad Orange China-Opposing Man? You be the judge.

For Americans hoping Senate Republicans might finally engage the Russia collusion hoax seriously, last night's interview of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell by "Special Report's" Bret Baier was a tremendous disappointment. McConnell better figure out quickly that if he doesn't hold the Resistance accountable for the Russia hoax that harmed his party and the entire country for many years, he won’t have a majority in the next term.

Yeah he won't. Things don't "just happen." People capable of shaping events either make them happen or let them happen.

There is a reason the Republican-controlled Senate almost entirely stood aside and let the Democrats rape Trump for three and a half years.

That reason is: They're on the Democrats' side in most matters involving wealthy interests.

And Mitch McConnell is the leader of the Trick the Rubes wing.

When Mitch McConnell wants something to happen -- like judges getting appointed -- he makes it happen.

When Mitch McConnell doesn't want something to happen -- like investigating Obama's Deep State minions or Obama himself, or fighting the Democrats on their three long Russia probe -- Mitch McConnell gives a speech or two to Trick the Rubes and then gives the signal to take Trump out behind the scenes.

These people are very good at offering The Rubes some soundbites and then acting ruthlessly against the Rubes when it comes to voting, or legislation, or investigation.

If it helps to motivate him, he should remember that not having the majority in the next term means he won't get to confirm judges, an issue he hopes will be his defining legacy.

Yeah he doesn't really care. He'll die rich. That's all that matters.

The judges are the one sop to The Rubes he's willing to make to keep feathering his nest.


Debunking this false narrative was for many years left to a very small band of reporters and congressional investigators. Most of the attention-getting congressional work was done on the House side, including the revelation that Hillary Clinton’s campaign had secretly paid for the false narrative and that there was serious abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in how the government secured wiretaps to spy on Trump campaign affiliates.

Despite being controlled by Republicans throughout the ordeal, the Senate was largely absent from the fight with the exception of just a few senators --- Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin being the primary investigators whose oversight work and document demands paid off. And their work should not be underplayed...

After the Russia collusion hoax helped Democrats win the House of Representatives in the 2018 election, the Senate needed to step up the fight. Yet McConnell didn't prioritize the issue in any way. He never noticeably supported the senators or committees who were doing actual work. He instead deferred to Richard Burr of North Carolina, the ostensible head of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which for years has in effect been run by Democrat Mark Warner.

That's because he is, was, and always will be on the other side.

Mollie Hemingway notes that Richard Burr was plainly a Deep State plant in the Senate Intelligence Committee, but McConnell didn't do anything about it.

That's for a simple reason: Mitch McConnell wanted a Deep State Plant on the Intelligence Committee.

He has silently approved of almost everything the Democrats have done.

We know now that Paul Ryan was blocking Republicans' ability to issue subpeonas behind the scenes before the 2018 election.

So... who would be the Republican making sure nothing much happens in the Senate since 2016?

Which high-ranking Republican Senator would that be?

Everyone remembers what Mitch McConnell has consistently done when insurgent candidates challenged his handpicked corporate-funded GOPe drones, right?

I hope we haven't all forgotten that.

And I hope no one is under the delusion that Mitch McConnell is more favorably inclined towards the insurgent, anti-Establishment, anti-China-Lobby, anti-endless-corporate-favorbanking Trump?

If he worked ruthlessly to eliminate all other anti-GOPe candidates, why would he permit Trump to go about his business?

Mitch McConnell and his own cronies are silent partners with Chuck Schumer in the plot to get Trump.

So no, Mitch McConnell will not be exposing what his partners did during this hoax investigation.
