March 19, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — China’s “wolf warrior” diplomacy was on full display at the Alaska summit. The fireworks began when country’s top diplomat, Yang Jieqi, launched into a 16-minute diatribe against the United States.
Both sides had agreed to limit their opening statements to 2 minutes each. But, as everyone knows, China doesn’t play by the rules. It simply flouted this one.
Rejecting criticism of China’s ongoing cyberwarfare against the U.S., Yang accused the U.S. of being the “champion” of cyberattacks. On the human rights front, he claimed that the U.S. does not represent “global public opinion” and that it has “deeply-rooted human rights problems,” including its “history of killing Black people.”
The final insult came when Yang said, “So, let me state here, in front of the Chinese side, the United States doesn’t qualify to lecture China from a position of strength.”
The entire diatribe seems to have caught Team Biden off guard. It shouldn’t have, since for the past several years, Beijing’s diplomats have been viciously attacking anyone who criticizes mighty China.
Because Australia has called for an independent investigation of the China Virus’s origins, Chinese officials have compared Australians to “gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe that you need to scrape off every once in a while.”
No diplomatic niceties there.
When China’s “wolf warrior” diplomats sense weakness, they now go on the attack. Team Biden should have anticipated this — but they didn’t. Either they didn’t plan out the meeting in advance — with draft statements, etc. — or they got totally played by the Chinese side.
It was painful to watch.
Secretary of State Tony Blinken was apparently unaware that the old Obama-Biden rules from 5 or 10 years ago don’t apply anymore. The rules where we pretend to slap China on the wrist for, say, human rights abuses, after which China pretends that it intends to do better.
The new China tactic is to use the rhetoric of our own Leftists against us, in the hope of robbing us of the moral high ground and embarrassing our negotiators into silence.
So we heard Yang claim that America has no moral authority to lecture China on human rights given that the U.S. itself suffers from structural racism that systematically oppresses blacks and other minorities.
See how China is using the American Left’s lies against us?
And it seems to have worked, since Blinken simply sat there and took it while the U.S. was attacked.
Powerful nations of the world, including China, the UK, and Canada are discussing plans to require so-called 'vaccine passports' as a condition for travel, and possibly to restrict entry to shopping and entertainment venues.
Israel has already put in place a system to discriminate against those who choose not to take the COVID vaccine, and, in the United States, Joe Biden has signed a new executive order which could pave the way for the implementation of a 'vaccine passport' system. [See more below.]
This kind of medical dictatorship must be resisted, and therefore, we must act quickly before these authoritarian notions take root and spread!
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to SAY NO to government 'vaccine passports.' Tell your legislators to respect your freedom not to vaccinate without fear of repercussion.
People should not have to live in fear of government retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It would be intolerable and immoral for the government to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping, go to a high school soccer game, travel on public transport, or visit their relatives who live in a different part of the country, or overseas.
Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.
So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished, restricted, or tracked for refusing an experimental vaccine.
Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.
Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.
We will no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question. And, neither can we accept the dictates of some doctors who seem detached from reality and from science.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which asks national political leaders (as well as state and provincial legislators in the U.S. and Canada) to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and NOT introduce 'vaccine passports,' or any other system which would discriminate on the basis of taking the COVID vaccine.

When Blinken finally had a chance to respond, all he could do was to acknowledge America’s imperfections.
“We make mistakes,” he said. “We, we have reversals, we take steps back. But what we’ve done throughout our history is to confront those challenges — openly, publicly, transparently — not trying to ignore them, not trying to pretend they don’t exist. Sometimes it’s painful. Sometimes it’s ugly. But each and every time we’ve come out stronger, better, more united, as a country.”
He was, in short, reduced to playing defense.
The Alaska meeting was supposed to pave the way for an April summit between President Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping. Given our weak showing in Alaska, the way we got humiliated on our own soil, there is no way we should agree to such a meeting.
It would be a mistake of the first order to put stumbling, bumbling Joe Biden in the same room with Xi Jinping. Our current president is neither mentally nor physically up to the challenge of matching wits with the Chinese Communist leader. Not to mention that Hunter Biden, his son, is still in a business partnership with the Chinese Communist Party.
Why embarrass the United States even more?
