Welcome back, as America undergoes historical political upheaval, our enemies are watching. China in particular, is mocking our internal unrest in its pursuit of world domination. But China has even greater problems than the United States, and they may be their own worst enemy. Dale Hurd explains.
To china, what happened at the capitol was a propaganda gift. The communist government-owned Global Times newspaper called it: “An iconic humiliation! The Madness of the capitol has dragged America to its waterloo!” Chinese commentators have had a field day, mocking what they call US hypocrisy, for supporting the sometime violent pro-democracy demonstration in Hong Kong.
Meanwhile China has been busy, trying to show the world that it offers a better more stable and prosperous way, and that its economy has recovered from coronavirus while other nations are still stuck in lockdowns.
A New York Times writer even suggested China’s system is better than ours, saying: “Citizens of china don’t have freedom of speech… but they have the freedom to move around and lead a normal day-to-day life. In a pandemic year, many of the world’s people would envy this most basic form of freedom.” Michael Waller, an expert on propaganda and psychological warfare at the Center for Security Policy says: “This has been the public relation’s goal of the Chinese government since it first began to be blamed for Covid-19.
“Right now Xi Jingping is doing everything right, right now China have perfect stability, it’s the model for the world, and by the way, look at how bad the United States is.” But as it tries to overtake the United States and becomes the most powerful nation on earth, China has become its own worst enemy. Despite images like these, making it look like everything has returned to normal, China has not beaten coronavirus. A few days ago it had to seal off an entire city of 11 million people and ordered mass testing.
Long time China expert Steven Mosher: “I think that anything that comes out of china is either greatly exaggerated or it’s an out loud lie.”
Shots like these are supposed to help you forget that China is one of the most brutal dictatorship in modern times. Millions of Muslim Uighurs have disappeared into Chinese internment camps, and Uighur women have subjected to forced abortion and sterilization. The Chinese embassy in Washington actually tweeted that this is good, because women are no longer baby-making machines.
But China’s biggest obstacle to becoming the world’s superpower is simply: time. China is on track to be the first major economy that will grow old before it achieves widespread prosperity, because of its disastrous one-child policy. “China has killed off a half of the last two generations. 400 million Chinese, unborn Chinese were eliminated. They created a demographic trap for themselves and they are falling into it.” Because of aging, China will need to import foreign workers in 10 years. In 30 years one-third of its population will be elderly.
Chinese immigrant Helen Raleigh is the author of Backlash – How China’s Aggression Has Backfired. “The aging population that’s a huge issue. That’s why Xi feels like he really needs to hurry up.”

In China’s race against time, president Xi has accelerated Chinese territory expansion, causing border disputes with most of its neighbors, and managing to turn them against China. “Xi is the most aggressive, most assertive Chinese leader since Chairman Mao. He is really a control freak, and he is power-hungry”
China has moved big into Africa, becoming the biggest trading partner with Africa nations. But it’s sabotaging its own efforts by angering Africans with its deep-seated racism toward blacks. In this Chinese video, African children were tricked into saying in Chinese: “I am a black monster and I have a low IQ.” McDonald’s said that it’ll apologize after a restaurant posted this sign saying no blacks allowed. And this commercial from Chinese TV portrays a laundry detergent so strong, it can wash away the skin color of a black man.
Chinese economic statistics are so untrustworthy that investment firms often use satellite images to find out the true state of the economy. “No responsible economist or investment professional will trust any official data out of China.” “The economic numbers out of china are… not a reflection of reality at all. The Chinese economy is in a recession, and the recession is getting deeper as we speak.”
Last year at the 70th anniversary of the founding of the China’s communist government, president Xi said: “No force can stop China.” But the Chinese government’s own policies are doing a pretty good job.
