China Accuses Biden of Wanting to Provoke a War to Boost the American Economy, while Half of Democrats Say They Want a Different Candidate for 2024
President Joe Biden, has been accused of provoking a war between Ukraine and Russia, allegedly because he wants to use a war to boost the American economy and is “using the tension to stir up trouble for China-Russia ties,” according to Chinese state-run Global Times.
Apparently “Chinese analysts,” have said that the United States is “spreading disinformation and strengthening military deployments to provoke Russia” so it can start a war that will advance American interests by “increasing uncertainties and concerns to harm the Eurozone economy so there will be more capital flight from the continent to the U.S. and thus easing the US inflation pressure,” according to the editorial.
They then contradicted themselves by noting that “there are no signs of large capital transfers to the U.S. market,” implying that President Biden has misread the situation in Europe before launching his alleged plan to start a war for American gain.
“China needs to keep close watch, oppose any act to hype up tensions by spreading fear via disinformation, and urge relevant parties to solve the problems via diplomacy,” the Global Times advised.
Of course the Global Times, offered no evidence to back up anything they had claimed, and even their “experts” could produce nothing more than vaguely suggesting Russia has no reason to invade their neighbor and that any conflict that does erupt, is the result of American interference.
“It’s possible that if Moscow and Kiev [sic] both keep calm, the US would use its proxies, such as NGOs or agents in Ukraine to create new troubles or to spark conflicts between Russia and Ukraine. This is what we need to pay attention to, rather than worrying about a so-called ‘Russian invasion’ hyped by the U.S.,” speculated Jin Canrong of Renmin University.
Chinese Ambassador to the UN, Zhang Jun commented on Twitter that, “Our message is consistent and clear: Resolve any differences through diplomacy. Stop hyping up the tension. Russia’s legitimate security concerns should be seriously addressed.”
The Financial Times, however, dismissed the claims that a war would somehow strain Russia and China ties:
“Beijing, which has long made respect for territorial integrity a foreign policy principle and has pursued trade and political links with Ukraine, may have little interest in a Russian military invasion that would provoke a global crisis and galvanize NATO and the U.S. The current stand-off, by contrast, arguably suits China well by tying Russia and the west up in protracted diplomatic wrangling,” the editors concluded.
While China accuses Joe Biden of wanting to spark the next World War, more than half of Democrats want their party to nominate someone else for the 2024 election, according to a CNN poll.
Released on Sunday, the survey found that only 45 percent of Democrats and Democrat-leaning voters want Biden on the ticket for the next election. 51 percent want someone else.
Staunch supporters still want Joe, but moderate supporters, aren’t too impressed.
“While 70 percent of Democratic voters who strongly approve of the way he’s handling the job said they’d like to see him renominated, that drops to just 35 percent among Democrats who said they approve moderately,” according to the CNN report.
Democrats, however, did not have a replacement in mind. It could be due to the Democrats having less and less appeal. Hillary Clinton was rumored to maybe run again, but since the Durham investigation has implicated her in some rather unsavory spying, that seems unlikely to happen any time soon.
“Only 12 percent of all Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters wanted to see a nominee who isn’t Biden and had a specific alternative in mind. No individual candidate was named by more than 5 percent of those who didn’t want Biden atop the ticket,” the report states.
Republicans are evenly split, with 50 percent wanting former President Donald Trump to run in 2024 and 49 percent hoping for a different candidate.
On the Republican side, 39 percent of respondents said they did not want Trump to be president again and 22 percent said, “they doubted Trump could win against the Democrats.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was among the alternatives and sat at 21 percent, while all the other preferences didn’t manage to get over even one percent.
“The numbers for both Biden and Trump look tepid compared with past poll results on a similar question. In March 2010, nearly 8 in 10 Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters said they wanted the party to renominate Barack Obama (79 percent),” CNN reported. “And in March 2018, Republican and Republican-leaning voters were solidly behind Trump’s renomination (77 percent).”
An unsurprising 81 percent of Republicans are looking forward to the next election, compared to 44 percent of Democrats.
