Joe Biden’s Manchurian Candidate Platform
The prospect of Joe Biden being a “Manchurian Candidate” is hardly a novel topic, but as we move into campaign season, just what might such a candidate’s policy prescriptions look like?
Biden as a “Manchurian Candidate” was discussed by former President Donald Trump in two recent interviews.
“I think it’s the weakest our country has ever been, and I do think we have a Manchurian candidate,” Trump told Newsmax’s Eric Bolling. “This is a president who’s a Manchurian candidate.
“This is a president that’s fully compromised, he’s so afraid of China, and the reason he’s afraid is because, I believe, they pay them a tremendous amount of money, and he doesn’t want people to find out about it.”
The Washington Times further reports on Trump’s remarks:
“$2 million that went into his accounts, in the various accounts of the family,” he added. “It’s a tremendous amount of money. … I believe that China has paid him a fortune.
Trump then went on to lament the state of Sino-American relations, saying, “China’s eating our lunch.” He said China is taking over Cuba and much of South America and that it wouldn’t have happened if he were president.
President Trump again addressed this sentiment when talking with Tucker Carlson in an interview that aired opposite and eclipsed viewship for the first Republican debate of the 2024 primary season.
“He gets millions of dollars. China pays this guy millions of dollars,” Trump told Carlson. “I think he’s the most corrupt president we’ve ever had. He also has the distinction of being the most incompetent. And I believe both. I mean, he’s both incompetent and corrupt.”
Manchurian Candidate Platform Planks
If one were a “Manchurian Candidate,” specifically a wholly owned Chinese Communist Party-controlled asset installed as president of the U.S., might the following policy actions/reactions (or lack thereof) best serve the interests of said political masters? (h/t Dick Morris)
- Refrain from forcing an investigation into the COVID-19 virus origins by, among other actions, impeding any opening of the Wuhan Institute of Virology facility to international inspectors.
- Ignore the CCP’s increasingly aggressive assault on the dollar. Minimize, if not blatantly ignore, the CCP’s coalescence of the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) as an entity seeking to replace the dollar with an alternative currency. Additionally ignore how the BRICS coalition is now increasing its ranks – and anti-American influence – with the addition of six new countries (Argentina, Egypt, Iran, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Ethiopia).
- Disregard the growing friendliness of former U.S. allies like Saudi Arabia, UAE and India with China. Treat this cooling of productive partnerships as inconsequential.
- Mandate U.S. “climate change” policy to extreme levels designed not only to reconfigure and devastate American industry along with the economy, but to also usher in a managed decline of American citizens’ way of life. Coordinate this effort while maintaining silence on China’s opening of at least one new coal plant per week.
- Take no action as U.S. companies move to China and relinquish critical U.S. developed intellectual property as “tribute” for entry into the communist nation’s economy.
- Discontinue the Trump administration’s program to identify CCP spies operating in the U.S.
- Do nothing as China builds a military base in Cuba. Additionally disregard the CCP’s growing involvement throughout the Bahamas and South/Central America including its desire to gain operational control over both ends of the Panama Canal.
- Take no issue as Russia and China conduct military exercises off the coast of Alaska in the Aleutian Islands.
- Completely disregard China’s relationship with Mexico, specifically the Mexican cartels, which entails supplying and/or trafficking fentanyl (or fentanyl-related substances) through the country for distribution in the U.S.
- Maintain an open border in which not just drugs and illegal immigrants seeking economic benefit, but also potential terrorists have every opportunity to easily access the American homeland.
- Ignore the purchase of American land, especially tracts with strategic proximity to military and other key national security locales, by CCP adjacent entities.
- Also dismiss the purchase of significant agricultural tracts or interests in American companies related to our food supply.
- Allow incursions such as the Chinese spy balloon which earlier this year took a leisurely trek across our country and whose route took it over numerous critical military installations.
- Embrace policy initiatives that facilitate the installation of China’s Confucius Institute chapters on U.S. college campuses.
- Support university academic entities like the Penn Biden Center’s acceptance of Chinese funding.
- While aggressively hampering domestic fossil fuel-based energy production, sell off significant portions of our U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) to countries including foreign adversaries like China.
These are the most visible examples highlighting the Biden regime’s support of the CCP. With a Chinese-friendly administrative state in place, the true depth of pro-CCP activities through other legislative and regulatory means is difficult to gauge.
Allies might argue that Biden’s track record on China isn’t as compromised as it appears. And perhaps explanations could be offered, but as actions speak louder than words, it’s hard to believe the CCP could have a better agent than Joe Biden acting on its behalf in Washington D.C.
