Is Xi Out?

(John Hinderaker)

There are rumors that a military coup is taking place in China, with President Xi Jinping ousted and, in one account, under house arrest. At this point no one is sure what is going on, but this seems like a reasonable place to start:

Unsubstantiated speculation swirled Saturday morning that Chinese President Xi Jinping has been locked down in isolation amid a potential coup.

Far East expert Gordon Chang said the rumor is likely “untrue,” but he noted there is something unusual going on in China and “there is turbulence” among the Chinese Communist Party leadership.

“The lack of news from #China over the last few hours suggests coup rumors are untrue, but whatever happened inside the #Chinese military during the last three days — evidently something unusual occurred — tells us there is turbulence inside the senior #CCP leadership,” Chang tweeted Saturday morning.
***
“This video of military vehicles moving to #Beijing comes immediately after the grounding of 59% of the flights in the country and the jailings of senior officials,” Chang tweeted. “There’s a lot of smoke, which means there is a fire somewhere inside the #CCP. #China is unstable.”

Things have not been going well for China lately. Stay tuned.

Clown Show: White House Immediately Walks Back Joe’s Comments on Taiwan Last Night – After Joe Doubles Down

The “Walk it Back White House” strikes again.  Why can’t this “administration” develop a consistent stance on seemingly anything?  As reported by The Gateway Pundit, Joe Biden’s White House has already walked back Joe’s comments on China-Taiwan relations three times previously.  Former press secretary Jenn Psaki has walked back Joe’s advice on wearing masks on planes back in April.  They (whoever “they” is) walked back Joe’s comments from his March speech where he said “Putin cannot remain in power!”  KJP walked back Joe’s comments that its “garbage” that we’d pay a settlement to families separated at the border.  Psaki walked back Joe saying “children coming to our border is a crisis.”  And Joe himself walked back his comment that Facebook is “killing people”.

Now we have another Walk It Back to add to the mix:

Last night on CBS “60 Minutes”, Scott Pelley asked Joe Biden “what should Chinese President Xi know about your committment to Taiwan?”

Joe responded “We agree with what we signed on to, a long time ago, and that there’s one China policy and Taiwan makes their own judgement’s about their independence.  We are not encouraging they are being independent.  That is their decision.”

Pelley followed up with “…would US forces defend the island?”

To which Joe responded Yes, if there was an unprecedented attack…”

60 Minutes, however, put out a tweet that same evening that said:

“After our interview, a White House official told us U.S. policy has not changed.  Officially, the U.S. will not say whether American forces would defend Taiwan.  But the Commander-in-Chief had a view of his own.”

Joe doubled down that US forces would defend Taiwan in the face of an invasion when Pelley asked again and perhaps tried to bring Joe back to the agreed upon responses from his notecards.  Joe wasn’t catching what Pelley was slinging.

I cannot for the life of me remember an administration that has no regard for chain of command or positions of authority.  Who is calling the shots in the White House and why is Joe’s “subordinates” constantly correcting him on his policy?  Who is the person responsible for the policy that is directing this country if it’s not Joe Biden, as he is constantly being undermined by his own subordinates?

This is absolutely embarassing.  This administration is a joke.  They have zero credibility and both our allies and our enemies are laughing at us.

President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed. https://t.co/ANg54LifSH pic.twitter.com/V5qjoqF36T

China: British Critics of Communism 'Extremely Disrespectful' to Queen Elizabeth

Give him an inch

(Scott Johnson)

I would be embarrassed to conduct an interview with the president that was as lame as Scott Pelley’s lovefest with President Biden on 60 Minutes last night. The Biden administration accorded Pelley a substantial amount of time to chat with Biden and Pelley returned the favor with a variety of softballs and dropped balls as well as his own apologetics — to no one’s surprise, of course, but still. It was an embarrassment.

CBS has posted the transcript here. NewsBusters covers the Biden segments in “State-Run TV: 60 Minutes Drools Over Biden in Syrupy Interview.”

The lack of follow-up questions was one striking feature of the interview. You’d almost think that Pelley himself doesn’t follow the news. He appears to be somewhat less knowledgeable than the average voter.

The good news is that “the pandemic is over.” That’s what the man said. The pandemic is over — until it’s not. You may recall that the administration now relies entirely on the pandemic to support it’s illegal student-loan giveaway. It’s an emergency. You may recall, but Pelley did not.

According to Biden, the Trump administration dealt him a bad hand on the pandemic. His poor approval ratings are somehow attributable to the “difficult time” he inherited. He gives the Trump administration no credit for the development of the vaccines that the Biden administration has proclaimed the key to the happy life. Rather, he complains that the vaccinations had only just begun under the Trump administration. Biden’s galling lack of grace is sickening.

Biden claimed credit for reducing “the debt by $1.5 trillion.” Pelley left it at that.

Pelley brought up Hunter Biden. He appeared to be unfamiliar with Miranda Devine’s reporting on the contents of the laptop. As I say, one might reasonably infer that he doesn’t follow the news beyond CBS broadcasts.

Pelley also invited Biden to comment on the staged FBI photo of the seized Trump documents. Yet Biden professed not to know anything about the documents.

Biden vowed to defend Taiwan from Chinese invasion. The AP covers this part of the interview here. Biden’s daycare minders in the White House have walked back this commitment three times before. Did Pelley know? The whole thing set the background of Pelley’s question but he let it ride. As usual, the White House walked back Biden’s comments on Taiwan.

Pelley observed that “some people ask whether” Biden is fit for the job. Biden responded: “Watch me. And ma– honest to God, that’s all I think. Watch me.” Pelley of course kept a straight face. We observe that Biden is unfit for the job based on our own observations. I set the over/under on his mental capacity at 40 percent.

I yield the floor to Miranda Devine.

This is quintessential Biden. Lying, gaslighting, emphatic, nasty, denying reality while in the same breath denying he's denying reality. It is so out of the bounds of normal behaviour that people discount it or blame their own perception https://t.co/xkkaKV6JqA

For Midterms, House Republicans Preview 4-Part ‘Commitment to America’

With the midterm congressional elections just two months away, House Republicans are preparing to roll out a plan that includes their top priorities for the country.  

The “Commitment to America” is a four-part plan that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., will formally unveil in Pittsburgh on Sept. 19, Axios first reported.  

“The American people expect their political leaders to have a plan, and I’m grateful [Minority] Leader Kevin McCarthy is putting forward the Commitment to America,” Kevin Roberts, president of The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal in an email Wednesday. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)

“There’s no better time than now to inspire voters with a bold vision, but it also requires a commitment to taking action once elected,” Roberts said. “Too often, politicians run on promises they fail to keep. We’re tired of the empty rhetoric and won’t settle for half-measures that fail to confront the great challenges facing America.”

McCarthy says Republicans are committed to:  

1. An Economy That’s Strong 

Fighting inflation and lowering the cost of living is central to Republicans’ plan to strengthen the economy, according to a fact sheet released by McCarthy.  

To achieve the economic growth America needs, Republicans say they will:  

  • “Put an end to ‘Build Back Better,’ and eliminate wasteful government spending that’s driving inflation.” 
  • “Continue proven pro-growth tax policies that increase take-home pay, reduce the cost of living, boost local businesses, and encourage innovation.” 
  • “Reconnect workers to jobs and end incentives that enable individuals to earn more by staying home, rather than going to work.” 

McCarthy and his colleagues on the right plan to lower gas prices and achieve American energy independence, putting an end to the “Biden administration’s anti-energy policies.” By increasing production of American-made energy, Republicans will seek to reduce America’s reliance on foreign energy from countries such as China and Russia.  

Improvements to America’s electrical grid will also help to prevent blackouts, the plan says. 

Additionally, by improving America’s supply chain, the country will face fewer shortages of items such as baby formula, and be less dependent on China, according to the [GOP] plan.  

2. A Nation That’s Safe 

A safe nation begins with a secure border, according to the “Commitment to America” plan.  

The Republicans’ plan to stop the flood of illegal immigrants streaming across the southern border includes strategies to:  

  • “Combat illegal immigration by requiring proof of legal status when applying for a job and restricting welfare benefits that incentivize illegal immigration.” 
  • “Confront the national security crisis at the border by ending catch and release, allowing [the Department of Homeland Security] to detain those who illegally enter our country while their immigration cases are pending.” 
  • “Require Remain in Mexico and allow Title 42 authority to be used to confront the public health emergency created by the fentanyl crisis.” 
  • “Finish building the wall, fully fund [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and Border Patrol, and deploy technology to stop the humanitarian crisis at the border.” 

In order to reduce crime and stop the flow of fentanyl into America, Republicans plan to increase support for law enforcement and provide law enforcement with the resources needed to “prevent drug cartels from flooding our communities with illicit drugs.”  

Republicans also say they will “place a hold on federal funds for local prosecutors and woke district attorneys who refuse to prosecute crimes.”  

National security is a priority, Republicans say, arguing that “President [Joe] Biden has managed our security through weakness and incompetence.” 

Through investing in the military, addressing the “catastrophic Afghanistan withdrawal,” opposing the Chinese Communist Party, standing with Israel, and opposing terrorism, Republicans plan to solidify America’s national security.  

3. A Future That’s Free 

The House Republicans’ plan to secure the future of America centers on providing opportunities for children and ensuring parents have a voice in their kids’ education.  

The GOP plans to ensure that parents know what their children are learning in school, protect girls and women’s athletics from males who claim to be female, and expand school choice options for students across the country.  

Republicans also plan to fight back against Democrats’ “one-size-fits-all government approach” to health care by creating more personalized health care options for Americans, increasing transparency and competition within the health care system, and expanding health care access.  

Big Tech companies are also a critical part of the conversation regarding America’s future, the Republican plan says.  

The “Commitment to America” plan would hold Big Tech companies accountable with a pledge to:  

  • “Scrap Section 230 for the largest tech companies and start over with rules that promote free speech.” 
  • “Provide greater privacy and data security protections for Americans.” 
  • “Target anti-competitive behaviors with strengthened antitrust review and enforcement.” 
  • “Equip parents with the tools necessary to keep their kids safe online.” 

4. A Government That’s Accountable 

The GOP says in its plan that congressional oversight is lacking in Washington, but it will seek to restore government accountability.  

Republicans say they will hold the Biden administration accountable through:  

  • “Use all tools at our disposal to pursue the truth, root out corruption and abuse of power, and provide transparency to the American people on the issues that matter most.” 
  • “Reassert Article I priorities with increased staffing of committee counsels.” 
  • “Demand the Administration answer to the American people for their mismanagement of our country.” 

Republicans’ plan also includes a commitment to preserve Americans’ constitutional freedoms.  

Top of mind for Republicans, according to their plan, is the need to protect Americans’ right to free speech, freedom of religion, and the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.  

Republicans say they are committed to defending the unborn and protecting the “Supreme Court justices and pro-life organizations targeted by destruction and violence.”  

Finally, Republicans plan to hold the government accountable by restoring faith in America’s elections.  

Republicans will seek to end proxy voting for members of Congress, ensure secure elections through mechanisms such as voter ID, and prevent those who are not American citizens from voting.
