Former National Intel Director: Biden's China Policies Not Supported By 'Current Intelligence'

John Ratcliffe explained how he was “concerned” about the Biden administration’s policies on China

Last week, former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe explained how he was “concerned” about the Biden administration’s policies on China because it was not supported by “current intelligence.”

“We need Joe Biden and his administration to be successful in the realm of intelligence and national security or we all suffer,” Ratcliffe said. “It’s easy to get caught up in partisan politics and having said that, you know, I’m concerned.”

“Because the president himself, President Biden, has taken some positions early on, with respect to, particularly with respect to both China and Iran, that, frankly, setting all politics aside are not supported by our current intelligence and the threat landscape,” Ratcliffe continued. “And things can’t have changed that much for some of the policy decisions that he’s advocating for, they just don’t line up, with some of the positions that he’s taking. So, I’m concerned about that.”

Biden recently came under fire after he seemingly defended the genocide of Uighur Muslims in China during a CNN town hall in Milwaukee by stating that “culturally, there are different norms that each country and their leaders are expected to follow.”

“The central principle of Xi Jinping is that there must be a united, tightly controlled China. And he uses his rationale for the things he does based on that. I point out to him, no American president can be sustained as a president if he doesn’t reflect the values of the United States,” Biden said. “And so the idea I’m not going to speak out against what he’s doing in Hong Kong, what he’s doing with the Uighurs in western mountains of China, and Taiwan, trying to end the ‘One China’ policy by making it forceful, I said — by the way, he said he gets it. Culturally, there are different norms that each country and their leaders are expected to follow.”

'HEY JOE!' Dan Crenshaw Rips Joe Biden on Energy, Asks if He Prefers ‘Dirty Fuel from Russia’

Rep. Dan Crenshaw called-out Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden on social media Friday; asking if the former Vice President prefers “importing dirty fuel from Russia.”

“Hey Joe, last year US emissions dropped by 2.1% largely because of Republican-led efforts to deregulate natural gas, a cleaner burning fuel.

Last week, Democrats actually demanded a moratorium on building gas pipelines.

I suppose y’all prefer importing dirty fuel from Russia?” asked Crenshaw.

“Our planet cannot afford four more years of Donald Trump,” posted Biden earlier this week.

‘BETRAYED’ BY BIDEN: Energy Workers Say Pipeline, Job Security ‘Ripped Out From Under Us’

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.03.21

American energy workers fired-back at President Biden this week after his administration moved to limit domestic oil production and distribution; saying their livelihoods were “ripped out from under us.”

“Longtime oil and gas industry workers David and Kristina Dickerson are criticizing President Joe Biden’s executive order canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline. They say the order, which displaced them from the project, is threatening their economic stability,” reports Fox News.

“I feel pretty betrayed,” David, who has worked in the oil and gas industry for 31 years, said Wednesday morning on “Fox & Friends.”

“We’ve had to actually dip into our retirement and our 401k, just trying to survive until something like this come up,” David said. “We’ve been depending on this to happen and it just all of a sudden got ripped out from under us and we’re not going to be able to do it now.”

“It’s a good thought, but it’s not a well-thought-out plan. They haven’t got it perfect,” David said. “And we’re still dependent on fossil fuel. We’re going to use this crude oil no matter what.”
