“..I thought we did that months ago...”

They have been able to at least fly FREIGHT and mail...not passengers in most cases...don’t know what the latest is but this action sounds like everything is off.

United States citizens need to leave China. We’re at war with them. It just hasn’t gone kinetic yet although we had their virus.

So how is the sudden surge in the US' official moves to contain China
affecting the Bidens' (ahem) "cozy financial sleepovers" with the Chi/Coms?



Twelve days after Hunter stepped off Air Force Two accompanying his dad, then-VP Biden on an official tax-paid trip to China
with Hunter's daughter in tow, Hunter's private company signed an historic deal with the Bank of China, the Communist Party-owned
financial behemoth---- which is calculatedly used as the tool of the Chinese Communist govt.

The Bank of China had created a first-of-its-kind investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR).
According to BHR, one of its founding partners was none other than Hunter's company, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC.

It was unprecedented: the Communist government of America’s fiercest competitor "in business" with the son of
a US elected official----one of America’s most powerful decision-makers, a step away from the presidency of Obama.

Chris Heinz (John Kerry’s stepson) claims neither he nor Rosemont Seneca Partners, the firm he had part ownership of, had any role in Bohai Harvest deal.

Nonetheless, Biden, Archer and the Rosemont name became increasingly involved with China.
Hunter's pal, Archer, became the vice chairman of Bohai Harvest, helping oversee some of the fund’s investments.

Troublingly, some of those investments had major implications for US national security.

TIMELINE---VP Biden, Hunter’s father, met earlier with then-Chinese President Hu Jintao in Washington during the Nuclear Security Summit.

In Dec 2014, BHR became an “anchor investor” in the IPO of China General Nuclear Power Corp. (CGN),
a Communist state-owned energy company involved in the construction of nuclear reactors.

In April 2016, the US DOJ would charge CGN with stealing nuclear secrets from the United States —
actions prosecutors said could cause “significant damage to our national security”....... and the safety and security of the American citizenry.

Of particular interest to CGN were sensitive, American-made components that, according to experts, resembled components used by the US on its nuclear submarines.

China requires all foreigners entering China to be quarantined for 14 days. That means air-crews also. No western airline could agree to a flight crew being locked in a hotel in China for 14 days. Thus, US airlines are unable to make flight schedules into China. Meanwhile, Chinese airlines faced no such restrictions in the USA.

That is the background behind this action.

The Biden Center at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) has over the past several years accepted
more than $22 million in anonymous China-originated donations and failed to properly disclose the contributions.

Hmmmmmm......looks like a Biden family brouhaha is brewing with these revelations.

It was kept secret so we can assume Joe didnt tell his greedy family about the munificent windfall....wanted to keep it all to himself.

Maybe Jill went shopping??

Did master sperm depositor Hunter even know?....cackle.


5/21 Across Biden "Charitable Organizations," A Refusal to Disclose Funding
Washington Free Beacon ^ | 5/21/20 | Alana Goodman / FR Posted by Artemis Webb

When Joe Biden announced he was opening a foreign policy center at the University of Pennsylvania, the goals for the project were ambitious. At its founding in 2018, Biden described the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement as "a place where policymakers here and abroad will know they can be in touch with some of the best minds."

The center is one of several organizations Biden founded since leaving the White House in 2017, including the domestic policy-focused Biden Institute at the University of Delaware and the Biden Cancer Initiative, all launched in 2017.

All three entities have refused to reveal the sources of their funding, a potential landmine for the Democrats' presumptive presidential nominee that raises questions about the influence of individual, corporate, and foreign donations on the presidential candidate.

The lack of transparency has drawn the attention of a watchdog group that is now demanding that the federal government investigate whether foreign money has flowed to the Biden Center in Philadelphia. (Excerpt) Read more at ...

This pic is the epitome of Joe Biden's family corruption. Shows exactly what they think of taxpaying Americans.
We exist only to serve them and the greedy Biden family's endless get-rich-quick schemes.

REALITY CHECK: On an official US govt tax-paid govt trip to China, then-VP Biden brought along Hunter and daughter
Finnegan for what looked to be a heart-tugging family outing (albeit paid for by struggling taxpayers).

Lookit her---the moronic grand-daughter waves at Chinese dignitaries like it was old home week, like she's some sort of diplomat.

Hunter is salivating knowing he's about to clinch another lucrative deal on the taxpayers' dime.

Hunter Biden soaked the taxpayers, using govt-sponsored travel to conduct private business, flying on the VP’ s plane, Air Force Two.

Sinless Joe Biden bragged he never discussed Hunter's billion dollar deal on AF Two.

SPIT---that's b/c details were worked out w/ the Chinese Communists way in advance----
in VP Biden's tax-paid office using Biden's tax-paid staff so that when they landed Hunter's billion dollar deal was good to go.

Sure enough, just as planned (or demanded by the VP?), ten days later,
Hunter cashed in bigtime-----Communist China gave Hunter the "hard-to-get" license to do business.

Chinese carriers were still allowed some flights. Not anymore.


So then it was a fake ban.

I don’t recall anyone in the administration discussing exceptions. In fact we were led to believe it was a total ban. That lack of transparency is disturbing.

I am disheartened that so many (even on our side) either don’t know about this or don’t care.

I can understand our side becoming apathetic about it because it is there for all (including those who SHOULD be looking for it) to see, but nobody does anything about it.

Keep in mind....the conniving Bidens keep it all top secret.

All of what you've read here was not ONE BIG STORY.
Far from it. The info was gleaned and there....when word somehow slipped out.

The United States “is suspending the scheduled passenger operations of all Chinese carriers to and from the United States,”

I am not sure if that means only direct flights between those two countries (by any Chinese airline), or whether it means no International flights at all, by any Chinese airline, at any US airport.

I think it means no more Chinese airplanes flying in US airspace, even if it is a flight from/to a third country, with no stop in China.

It might be a straight out trade dispute, where we are defending US carriers that were hurt by Chinese restrictions - reciprocity.

It might also be a security move.

Perhaps Intel suggests that China might have a plan for a nuclear first strike aboard civilian airliners, or an EMP precursor, or some other type of Military/terrorist operation.

Is it just coincidence that we also recently announced that we would pull out of the Open Skies Treaty?

In any case, it does not seem to be tied to disease prevention - it seems economic and/or security related.

Chinese effort to influence events in Africa goes back to the nineteen sixties. That effort was soon truncated. Hundreds of African students who were educated in China soon found they were shunned, and racism was endemic. Fast forward a half century. China once again is making the effort to influence events in Africa. However, nothing has changed in China. Racism is endemic (as the Wuhan virus proved). The Han are Han, and they remain so.

"What's going on?"

I think Trump FINALLY has serious intelligence (evidence) that the Chinese have VAST espionage networks including so-called "STUDENTS" occurring within our country.


Trump needs to BOOT every Chinese national OUT of the United States. Chinese females who come to the United States IMMEDIATELY GET PREGNANT and have their anchor babies in our hospitals. THIS IS PART OF THE LONG GAME OF CONQUEST BY THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT!

Needs to include NOT allowing those taking flights to Canada or Mex then transferring from a chinee airline to one coming into the US.

Period... don’t let them make an end run through our canada and Mex or any other neighbors. Stop IOW all chinese airline ORIGINATING flights/passengers. That would put it to them.
