The Biden administration has been in power since Jan. 20, and now more than a month later, its domestic policies consist of more than 20 presidential orders, characterized by de-Trumping: replacing Trump‘s policy of restricting immigration with open borders; reinstating Obama’s unisex toilet order that Trump canceled (people can choose the bathroom and locker room according to their psychological gender); and repealing the Keystone pipeline project (Keystone XL), a U.S.-Canada partnership. Stone XL) as the opening salvo of the Green New Deal. The point of this article is not to analyze the domestic resistance to these policies (which also included two Democratic senators), but rather to discuss the diplomatic malaise that the United States has encountered.
Biden Wants to Be Big Brother, France and Germany Both Show Their Appreciation
The Biden Administration‘s foreign policy toward China is of great interest to the world, as it affects the security of the Asia-Pacific region and the composition of a global multipolar world.
The Biden administration understands this and has been reluctant to set the tone. Despite China’s several “thorny olive branches” to the U.S., in the first 20 days of February, Secretary of State Blinken and the White House press secretary announced a strategy toward China that was only adjusted from “strategic patience” to “strategic ambiguity. The “strategic ambiguity” state, and announced that the policy concept on China will be announced to the public after communicating with allies.
But the world has learned from Washington’s intermittent statements that the U.S. strategic positioning towards China is not hostile, but has been positioned as “the most serious competitor”; the world is dissatisfied with the Chinese Communist Party‘s policies in Xinjiang, Tibet, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Biden also has his own attitude. couldn’t resist revealing to the host what he and Xi Jinping talked about during their two-hour call on February 10: “On this point that I would not criticize Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Taiwan issues, he expressed understanding. The two countries have different cultural standards that need to be followed by the leaders of each country.” , meaning an endorsement that China’s policies toward those places are cultural pluralism and should be respected.
Biden and his allies have of course all spoken on the phone, and he believes that as long as he brings money and a smile to the table, they will continue to embrace the U.S. as the lead brother. On Feb. 17, Secretary of Defense Austin attended a video conference of NATO defense ministers to convey the message that the Biden administration would reinvigorate the alliance. The Biden administration’s message to reinvigorate the alliance was conveyed to the participants. Everything was ready for the G7 meeting on February 19, when Biden shone as the U.S. president and sincerely expressed his alliance sincerity to his allies and his willingness to assume a leadership role in the alliance with China, but was unexpectedly rejected by Germany’s Merkel and France’s Macron, both of whom said without inflection that they would no longer follow the U.S.
The G7 results, which the U.S. officials and media had thought the world would welcome with open arms the return of the U.S. to the throne of world leadership, did not slow down until two days later, when the media reluctantly acknowledged the reality that Germany and France did not want to continue to follow the U.S., but attributed it to the allies’ distrust of Biden personally.
U.S. Suspicion of Biden’s Condition
The Republican Party is currently too busy with infighting and difficult consolidation to focus on the diplomatic level, but the Democratic side has apparently taken notice, leading to these two back-to-back news items.
On Monday night, Feb. 22, NewsMax host Grant Stinchfield said on his show, We hired a doctor in a program at Mount Sinai Medical Hospital who has been able to help us by watching Joe Biden He made the diagnosis by watching 30 hours of video of Joe Biden’s early to mid-stage dementia. Now that Biden has assumed the presidency, I believe Joe Biden’s mental state is clearly a threat to national security. Now, the rest of the world is clearly taking notice.
Biden’s physical state was an issue that was openly discussed repeatedly during the election, and the news apparently wasn’t treated as gossip, as many media outlets picked up on it, followed by the occurrence of a joint letter to Biden from 32 House members in the Democratic Party.
According to a Feb. 23 Fox report, a total of 32 Democratic congressmen wrote to Biden, asking him to give up the president’s nuclear weapons launch authority. According to Politico, Democrats offered a number of alternatives to the sole nuclear energy agency, such as asking the vice president and the House speaker to agree to the president’s launch order before it is implemented. A letter from Rep. Jimmy Panetta, D-California, reads, “Granting this authority poses a real risk to one person.”
The provision that gives the President of the United States – the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces – the authority to order the launch of a nuclear attack did not begin today. Nancy Pelosi has questioned President Trump’s mental state to activate the 25th Amendment to limit presidential powers. But she herself has likewise been questioned about her extremely unstable mental state, as happened twice in 2020. What’s different this Time: the power to demand that Biden give up the nuclear code’s only launch order is not coming from the political opposition camp, but from his own party, which is supporting his presidential bid.
Considering that during the campaign, there were rumors that Biden would resign for medical reasons and that the vice president and Nancy would take his place, this open letter to Biden, signed by 32 Democratic congressmen, is not a coincidence, and the NewsMax host’s talk about the psychiatric diagnosis of a specialist at Mount Sinai Hospital (located in New York, very famous) should also be true.
The international situation is favorable for Taiwan
After the G7 meeting, Biden came back and announced that military deployments are still focused on China, but no longer “America first” but “we’re in this together. It seems that the Biden administration doesn’t even understand what “America First” means.
Trump’s “America First” means that in multilateral relations, will not put the interests of the United States at the expense of other countries, such as NATO, hope that member countries more or less bear some military spending, rather than the previous Germany not a penny, the United States to bear the majority of that state. In the military is always “America first”, the “priority” refers to the United States to assume the public responsibility to maintain international order, more money, more effort. Now Biden military demand “we together” to bear, the United States still take what to lead the world? Do people follow the U.S. just to follow the standard ideas of the American left?
A country’s diplomacy is a continuation of its internal affairs. Now that the outlines of the Biden administration’s internal affairs are in place, governments probably won’t follow the U.S.’s internal affairs reforms, such as opening borders to illegal immigrants and determining gender based on psychological identity (there have been several cases of men believing they are women winning women’s games at the U.S. Games, causing opposition from feminists). The Democratic Party’s most hard-core proposition is a green energy policy, an area where Europe is already ahead of the curve and has suffered the consequences. Taiwan was also unhappy with Tsai Ing-wen’s abandonment of nuclear energy and green energy. Now allies even diplomacy is no longer willing to follow the United States, should want their own country to run on a normal track. The U.S. itself is full of variables, and we really don’t want to be influenced to follow you to toss the “Great Reset” (proposed by the founder of the World Economic Forum and endorsed by the U.S. tech giants, the Democratic Party, the United Nations and some far-left international organizations), give up our sovereignty, oppose capitalism and work together to achieve socialism. The Great Reset is a new state of affairs for Taiwan.
This state of affairs is, on the contrary, beneficial for Taiwan. For example, when China showed off its force in the South China Sea since January this year, the British Navy immediately declared that the South China Sea operation would be the first long-distance voyage of the aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, and that two squadrons of F-35B Lightning II stealth fighters would accompany the fleet. France is sending a submarine and a warship to the South China Sea, and the French defense minister made a point of saying that “this operation is being considered together with the U.S., Japan and Australia” – a situation that is far more imposing than the U.S. fleet cruising the South China Sea alone.
In addition, the global shortage of automotive chips has raised the strategic importance of Taiwan to Western governments. Taiwan’s semiconductor industry is the second largest in the world by turnover after the United States. The world’s largest contract wafer manufacturer, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), produces critical wafers that are desperately needed by countries, and despite being diplomatically isolated by the Chinese Communist Party, Taiwan has established itself as a remarkable concentration of expertise, intellectual property rights, and the importance of the global semiconductor industry, with the U.S. military relying on TSMC-produced wafers for its production. For the security of all nations, these Western powers will agree on protecting Taiwan.
Today’s international situation has long since departed from the expectations of the big reset makers, and Taiwan’s international space has been greatly expanded by a TSMC, and beyond the expectations of Taiwan’s political circles.
