All hell broke loose when Nancy Pelosi did the one thing Joe Biden begged her not to do
Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden faced their most serious disagreement.
One came out the winner.
And all hell broke loose when Nancy Pelosi did the one thing Joe Biden begged her not to do.
Nancy Pelosi planned to visit the democratic nation of Taiwan as part of a Congressional delegation trip to Asia.
Joe Biden cowered in the fear of Communist Chinese bullying and said the military did not want Pelosi to make the trip to Taiwan.
“Well, I think that the military thinks it’s not a good idea right now,” Biden told reporters. “But I don’t know what the status of it is.”
Communist China’s President Xi Jinping wants to conquer Taiwan – which is where the legitimate government of China led by Chiang kai-Shek fled to following the Communist revolution in 1949 – to claim that mainland China is the one true China.
Ever since Joe Biden took office, Communist China sensed his weakness and ramped up its military aggression towards Taiwan.
A propagandist affiliated with Communist China’s state media even floated the idea of shooting down Pelosi’s plane.
But Pelosi ignored Biden and word leaked out that she planned to visit Taiwan, with the only detail left to be resolved is if she will spend the night or depart the same day she arrived.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
In 2023, the year in which the legislation would increase tax revenue most, individuals making less than $10,000 per year would pay 3.1% more in taxes and those making between $20,000-30,000 per year would see a 1.1% tax increase, the JCT analysis showed. Tax revenue collected from those making $100,000 per year or less would increase by $5House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is planning to visit Taiwan, with meetings scheduled with government officials on the self-ruled island that China claims as its own, according to a person familiar with the matter, raising the prospect of increased tensions between the U.S. and China.
People whom Mrs. Pelosi is planning to meet with in Taiwan have been informed of her imminent arrival, this person said, though some details remain in flux. Some of Mrs. Pelosi’s meetings have been scheduled for Tuesday evening, but most are set for Wednesday, the person said, adding that they include, but aren’t limited to, Taiwanese government officials.
“She’s definitely coming,” the person said. “The only variable is whether she spends the night in Taipei.”
Taiwan could be a flashpoint for World War III.
If Communist China launches an invasion of Taiwan, the operation could very well begin with a Chinese sneak attack on U.S. bases in Japan and Guam.
Biden bending in the face of Communist China’s bullying only makes war more likely.
