    China

    Uncle Joe says that China is not a threat to the US. Actually laughed off the idea at a rally this week. China gave his son 1.5B as part of a business deal. China is one of the most aggressive countries that steal corporate intellectual property and secrets. They are a huge threat to the U.S. but only a very few in Congress seem to think so.

    Chinese spies are increasingly recruiting U.S. intelligence officers as part of a widening, sustained campaign to shake loose government secrets.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/02/polit...ort/index.html

    The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, recently warned Congress that US companies that did business in China were often indirectly benefiting the Chinese military, citing Google as an example.

    Re: China

    Joe Biden’s quote is not really correct, but his spokespersons explanation is:

    “As he has many times, Vice President Biden underscored that, whatever challenges we face as a nation, including those posed by a rising China, they pale in comparison to the structural and social challenges that confront China itself," Andrew Bates said in a statement. "Joe Biden believes it's never a good bet to bet against America and the fundamental strength, resilience, and ingenuity of its people."

    The stuff about China investing in his son’s defunct hedge fund many years ago is much less relevant today.

    China is a competitor, and competes in ways that are unfair by Western standards, but the success of American business depends more on America’s ability to out innovate at an increasing rate in areas of exponential growth technologies, while dealing with the societal challenges and disruption they are going to increasingly cause.

    The only thing Joe Biden and the rest of the loony democrats have to campaign on is their hatred of Trump and that's not going to help them when the voters take a look at the economy and many other good things Trump has done for the people.

    Biden is nothing more than a corrupt, DC establishment hack. The only reason he's not been found to have been more involved in the failed coup attempt is that everyone in the Obama administration knew that Joe was just too stupid to have been let in on it. He'd have screwed the whole operation up before it ever got underway. The masterminds of the attempted coup knew this and they kept Biden in the dark.

    Every time I look at Biden the image of a dunce cap comes to mind. The guy has always been a dunce.

    I'm shocked! Shocked I tell you! Goosey is defending everything about Biden...scandals? who cares? Dangerous foreign policy? No big deal!

    But, remember y'all, Goosey says he is not a Dem...in fact, he claims to be a Libertarian! which in many ways is to the right of the GOP...especially in fiscal matters.

    FAKE! Goosey is as FAKE as the FAKE news networks he believes.

    Yep! that's the image most people have of him...DUNCE! Stick him in the corner with his dunce hat on.

    But, as for the coup plot, Biden was in several key meetings as obummer, Krooked Killary and their scumbag operatives plotted their power grab. Now, it may be that Biden was clueless what was going on. He is really that dense. When obummer and the FBI thugs would say: "okay, we will pay foreign operatives to create a fake dossier..." Biden probably thought they were planning the 4th of July BBQ.

    So, he can plead ignorance...and get away with it. He is a true dunce.

    It is all relative. He is light years better than Trump.

    If he wins in 2020 I hope he is! That would mean, GDP growth of 10%+, unemployment of 0%, and the end of the illegal immigrant invasion. I can live with that. And I would happily, I mean HAPPILY, sing his praises!

    What will the economy be like in a year? It amazes me that the economy has done so well with the distractions to Trump's presidency.

    I noticed you did not respond. That's okay, I didn't expect you to. And, I won't hold you to the "light years better than Trump" comment because I'm sure it was just an off-the-cuff hyperbole designed to make a point. Well...I'm not sure how one would measure such performance in "light years" anyway. That is a measure of distance. So, if Biden is better, has a better tenure, would it be right to say he bested Trump by a thousand miles? His economy is 4,675 miles better than Trump's. What would that mean?

    Now, you might have said, exaggerating, Biden will be "a thousand times better than Trump." Okay. But in terms of the economy, for instance, would that mean the GDP would grow 3,000% in one quarter under Biden!? Wow!

    All the hyperbole aside, what exactly do you mean? Let's explore the real possibilities.

    In terms of personal behavior... well, Creepy Uncle Joe doesn't have much maneuvering room there. His sexual assaults on women, all the creepy touching of minor children, the kisses, the grabs...and his gaffes! OMG! he's been a one-man anti-PC machine for decades! Personally, I find some of it funny, non-offensive. But then I am not PC so his goofy comments never bothered me. But, it's suppose to be a no-no for you overly sensitive libs. Now, of course, Trump is guilty of his own misconduct and gaffes, if one can call them that. I think he speaks his mind, is brutally honest, and that doesn't sit well in the PC world.

    Overall though, given both of their track records, it's difficult to see how Biden can be "light years" ahead in this category. Let's call it a wash.

    In terms of intelligence. LOL! This is an easy one. Trump wins, albeit by a mere TD. Still, no way can Biden be "light years" smarter than Trump. Biden is a dunce! This one belongs to Trump.

    In terms of foreign policy. Well, all we can do is look at Biden's track record, and the stupid-azz policies he's endorsed. And, at the 8 years he served as VP in a failed administration. One can attempt to shield Biden from the stupid foreign policy decisions made by obummer-Killary, and obummer-Kerry, and, they might have a legit point. Wouldn't be surprised if Biden was absolutely clueless about what was going on. Given he is such a dunce, it is plausible he was kept out of the loop. But, that only casts an even bigger shadow on Biden's contribution. And now, you say Biden will be "light years" better than Trump in foreign policy!? No way! Trump wins this one.

    In terms of the economy....LOL! I can't even type this one with a straight face! Biden was part of the WORST 8-year run in US history, and Trump is setting records. Yet, you, in your infinite wisdom, think by some miracle Biden's economy will be "light years" better than Trump's???? SLAM DUNK for Trump!

    In terms of transparency. Biden was part of one of the LEAST transparent administrations in all of history. Certainly, since WWII. The scandals and the cover-ups made Nixon's meager actions look like a task one could earn a Boy Scout merit badge for! Not saying Trump hasn't been non-transparent in some doings...although I haven't seen anything to be overly concerned about. But Biden...whoa! And again, using the unit of measure that YOU provided, I don't see a Biden administration being "light years" better. Another in the Trump column.

    Enough for now.

    You have failed, and failed miserably, to provide even a hint of how Biden will be "light years" ahead of Trump. But, I have an open mind, and will welcome your analysis.

    Re: China

    Hitler did great things for Germany’s GDP and unemployment, but his inhumanity makes that irrelevant when you compare him to anyone other than mass-killing leaders in history.

    The damage Trump has done to erode the safeguards of democratic freedoms similarly makes any of his other “achievements” mostly irrelevant. The fact that he has perverted one of our two political parties into his image, one that believes in an all-powerful authoritarian executive, looks to be his legacy.
