Biden Contradicts Stance on ONEChina Policy; Sells Taiwan $500 Million in Arms

As action number 8,675,309 proves, Biden cannot be trusted to stick to a plan, he has reversed his previous statements on the ONEChina policy as dictated by Beijing. Despite serious objections from mainland China, the State Department is now backing a 500 million dollar deal to provide Taiwan with infrared searching systems for the F-16. Along with these systems will come testing support and equipment, software to run them, and support.

This kind of deal might seem small in terms of dollars, but the technology being sold is likely to leave Beijing extremely upset. Their technical advantages were now being wiped out, and they were left with little recourse but to sit there and take it.

State Department officials released a statement about the sale. “This proposed sale serves U.S. national, economic, and security interests by supporting the recipient’s continuing efforts to modernize its armed forces and to maintain a credible defensive capability. The proposed sale will improve the recipient’s capability to meet current and future threats by contributing to the recipient’s abilities to defend its airspace, provide regional security, and increase interoperability with the United States through its F-16 program.”

Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen had visited the war memorial from their last battle with China 65 years ago just hours before the deal was announced on August 23rd. During that visit, she announced a commitment to strengthen Taiwan’s self-defense and commemorated those who had died there. The outer islands of Kinmen which she visited, were where the conflict took place and is hallowed ground to them.

Taiwanese Vice President William Lai Left visited Paraguay last week, and his bounce through the US on his journey infuriated Chinese officials. With China stepping up its testing and military drills near Taiwan, the decision to up its capability for detecting threats is a smart investment in their future.

Yet for President Biden, it’s a prime example of how two-faced he is as a President, and a large part of it comes from his obvious dementia. Not even six months ago, he was flip-flopping on selling Taiwan arms. One day he wanted to ensure they could be ready to defend should mainland China decide to attack. Next, he was certain that the US was still fully supporting the ONEChina policy and not trying to rile officials in Beijing.

His classic adventures in changing stance and swapping out who gets our help and who is on their own is nothing new to the American people. Yet the mainstream media and the liberals are perpetually trying to rewrite history and make it seem as if Biden has felt this way for ages, and somehow the media twisted his words or misrepresented his actions.

Their mental gymnastics can be hard to keep up with, and the diagrams required to understand the nuances of their lies and deception are legendary. Yet they continue presenting them as the mainstream media keeps pushing their narrative forward, and it is fed into the populous as fact. A dangerous move for the freedom of the press and the good of all Americans, yet it still happens day in and day out.

Given the slowly advancing story of China’s attempt to regain Taiwan in conjunction with their relationship with Russia and North Korea, as well as their contempt for the US, it becomes clear that we are on a collision course. A course that can very easily become disastrous for much of the world. It can all be prevented with some simple logistics and proper planning.

While we wait for him to mess up that planning though, the nation falls deeper and deeper into our problems. As he continues to fund Ukraine in his money laundering scheme, the American people are being drawn closer to war as China and Russia start working closer together and even pull in China’s little sister, North Korea.

Unless we get real change soon, Biden could lead us so far in the wrong direction that nobody who wins in 2024 has a chance to save it.
