Excerpt from Gary Bauer’s End of the Day – December 9, 2020

Long-time readers of this daily report and supporters of my work know that I have been critical of communist China’s influence in the United States for many, many years.

It never seemed to matter which party was in power in Washington. The policy was always the same: China always got what it wanted. Of course, we know why: Our corporate and political elites were always on the same page.

But thanks to recent comments by Di Dongsheng, vice dean of the School of International Relations at Renmin University, the extent of this sellout is crystal clear. Here’s how Di explained U.S./China relations in recent years:

“The Trump Administration is in a trade war with us, so why can’t we fix the Trump Administration?  Why, between 1992 and 2016, did China and the U.S., use to be able to settle all kinds of issues? No matter what kind of crises we encountered . . . We fixed everything in two months. What is the reason?

“I’m going to throw out something maybe a little bit explosive here. It’s just because we have people at the top. At the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence, we have our old friends. . .

“For the past 30 years, 40 years, we have been utilizing the core power of the United States. . . Since the 1970s, Wall Street had a very strong influence on the domestic and foreign affairs of the United States, so we had a channel to rely on. But the problem is that after 2008, the status of Wall Street has declined, and more importantly, after 2016, Wall Street can’t fix Trump. . .

“So during the U.S.-China trade war they [Wall Street] tried to help. And I know that, my friends on the U.S. side told me that they tried to help, but they couldn’t do much. . .

“But now we’re seeing Biden was elected [laughter]. The traditional elite, the political elite, the establishment, they’re very close to Wall Street. So you see that, right? Trump has been saying that Biden’s son has some sort of global foundation. Have you noticed that? Who helped him [Biden’s son] build the foundations? Got it? There are a lot of deals in all these.” 

If you doubt Di’s comments for any reason, check out this recent Wall Street Journal article titled, “China Has One Powerful Friend Left In The U.S.: Wall Street.” It confirms that China’s vice premier went to Wall Street in February of 2018 seeking help from America’s corporate titans to rein in Donald Trump.

Di’s comments also underscore the urgency of continuing the investigations into Hunter Biden’s dealings with communist China. Rep. Ken Buck has called on Attorney General Barr to appoint a special counsel to ensure that “a potential Biden Administration will not be the subject of undue foreign interference.”
