Joe Biden Does It Again
Boring Biden Speech Incites ‘Fisticuffs’
Joe Biden is currently touring China, where his speeches are so long and boring, they are literally inciting violence. Or, so says the Chinese government, which has been trying to shove reporters out the door every time Biden calls for "openness and candor" in Chinese-American relations:
It was right about this time that a near-brawl was breaking out about a hundred feet away from the diplomatic exchanges in the Eastern Hall of the Great Hall of the People.
Only minutes into Biden's remarks, Chinese officials had begun to direct reporters toward the exits. Most reporters and the vice president's staff objected, saying it was important to cover the entirety of Biden's opening statement, as had been the agreement between officials beforehand.
A Chinese press aide said Biden was going on far too long for their liking. But in fact, including the consecutive translation of his comments from English to Chinese, Biden spoke only two or three minutes longer than [Chinese Vice President] Xi had.
Soon the stern shooing turned into forceful shoving. As reporters tried to stand their ground, Chinese officials locked arms and pushed forward in a show of overwhelming force. Soon enough Biden did finish, but reporters had difficulty hearing the entire thing because of the fisticuffs.
Old Joe and the Obummer administration can not catch a break. The Chinese reporter get into fisticuffs with the authorities cause Joe is so long winded and then the USA basketball team gets into a brawl with the Chinese players. Sounds like goodwill tour to me. Wonder what the administration's next trick is going to be.
Anyone who'd send Biden on a diplomatic mission has holes in their head..Biden isn't capable of going for pizza without causing an accident along the way...The guy is a walking calamity case..Destined to fail and cause hate and havoc where ever he goes...Another Joe Btfsplk,the world's worst jinx.

The reason for the great firewall, the censorship, and the "Party's" aim to keep the peasants of China in the dark throughout the entirety of their industrialization is standard of living. Communism is failing spectacularly in China, well at least as spectacularly as it has failed everywhere else it has been implemented. When you break down the numbers, the average Chinese peasant is living in conditions that the poorest American citizen can easily afford, while the production of the poorest Chinese peasants surges past the poorest of Americans who rely on negative production for sustenance. The Chinese have had to resort to well documented and proven currency manipulation in order to convince their own people that they are all just equally impoverished "fellow travelers", rebelling against the capitalist system that allegedly brought them economic ruin a half a century ago. It isn't working. The truth is, nearly all Chinese peasants aren't any better off, though the economic status of their country has been rising, their individual standard of living has not. They want to see the piece of the pie their production has bought them before take a bite out of it. That is why any request for openness must be put down by hard tyranny, the Communist Party is hanging by a thread that once cut, will put the middle eastern democracy and freedom rallies to shame.

If you were a communist party member, and people began looking behind the curtain, your position as a "boot-on-the-neck" man might begin to look a little scary in the face of a billion, really pissed off, newly born capitalists.
While freedom dies with a whimper, not a bang, communism dies with an energetic public celebration.
leave it Biden. brings an Obama to a gun fight
