Yes, why is Pelosi even there? To clinch some kind of under the table deal for herself and her husband?

Carlson makes alot of good points here.
He could very well be right on either of the two possibilties he raises here - that Pelosi’s visit is based on either this adminstrations ignorance and incompetence, or, a deliberate attempt to provoke war with China.
A question here - Carlson says Biden approved her visit, but the Brietbart article says he warned her against going - which is correct?
I think it’s probably the former.
As a fake provocation perhaps? Shortly we’re going to be hearing about how China is the big enemy and then we will be reminded that war is peace etc.
No, I don’t think so. Remember this is an administration composed of fools. They don’t know what they’re doing or why. China may use the Old Vindictive’s visit to Taiwan as a pretext for invading the island. But no, Old President Doofus does not want war with China. China owns him, and he likes it that way because China feeds him lots of yummie dough.
If you believe the Biden administration and its media allies, members of congress visiting Taiwan is a shocking and unprecedented event. Except that Senator Tammy Duckworth visited Taiwan in May. Senator Richard Burr, Robert Menendez, Lindsey Graham, Ben Sasse and Robert Portman came in April. Along with Rep. Ronny Jackson. Senator Dan Sullivan and Chris Coons flew over last summer. In the fall, Rep. Nancy Mace, Sarah Jacobs, Mark Takano, Elissa Slotkin and Colin Allred saw the sights.
Thanks in part to the Taiwan Travel Act, which passed with no opposition and was signed by President Trump in 2018, Taiwan is Grand Central Station for congressional delegations.
Pelosi is higher-ranking only in that she’s the outgoing lame duck leader of a vanishing majority.
China was not threatened by Pelosi’s visit. It chose to exploit it as an opportunity to intimidate the Biden administration and blackmail its weak enemies. And whatever else happens, it succeeded in exposing once again how worthless Biden’s tough talk about Taiwan is.
In the New York Times, Paul Krugman launched his attack headlined, “Why Pelosi’s Visit to Taiwan Is Utterly Reckless”. Coincidentally, “reckless” was how China’s Ambassador Qin Gang had described the visit to CNN. Or maybe not so coincidentally after all since so many of America’s headlines are actually translated from the original Chinese.
There’s nothing reckless about the visit.
The media, which joined Xi’s chorus, showed that its only allegiance is to protecting the Biden administration and kowtowing to China. C
Communist China isn’t afraid of Pelosi and it certainly isn’t afraid of Biden. The Communist dictatorship is testing our nation’s leaders to see if it has any reason to fear America.
Worth reading in full:
Interesting. Especially about how “so many of America’s headlines are actually translated from the original Chinese”. That’s a pretty good indication of who’s really running the show here.
I wonder how much China paid them to do it?
I’m not sure China paid them. Maybe the people of Taiwan generally don’t like Pelosi.

Knowing her corruption, it wouldn’t be surprising at all to find out that some sort of “business” deal was made through her son while she was there.
Biden followed the same m.o. with Hunter.
