The American mainstream news media may not want to touch the story about the Biden-China connection with a ten-foot poll, but China’s leading government controlled daily had no problem exposing a conduit for the Communist Chinese government’s orders to a potential President of the United States.
The Global Times, the official propaganda instrument of the Chinese Communist Party disguised as a news outlet, published an op-ed that outlined three over-riding points – instructions to the “incoming Biden administration”: obey Beijing, do not challenge China’s economic superiority, and open your domestic markets without restraint.
The op-ed piece was published in the Sunday edition of the Global times and confidently outlined China’s vision of US-China relations in the immediate future under a submissive Biden administration.
The piece made clear from the first point that the Communist Chinese government expects a “partnership” that is “categorically different” than that presented by the Trump administration.
“Biden is, irrevocably, the 46th US president,” the op-ed states. It then launched into an outline how the two countries will combine their resources in fighting COVID.
The Times op-ed suggested that prostrate America is a better America.
Opinion: To control #COVID19 pandemic in US and other parts of the world, China and US should start earnest collaboration in good will. Time for #Biden's team to work with China to cope with virus crisis, economy. https://t.co/p1fi9ASnaW pic.twitter.com/jaJRMHlrBV

The op-ed seemed to issue a warning to an underling (read: Joe Biden) that, “Demonizing China or slinging dirt on Chinese people will never help to stop the flare-up of infections and fatalities in America…China’s experiences are impressive in curtailing the pandemic, and China’s unparalleled ability in manufacturing PPEs and producing vaccine vials and freezers should not be neglected and could be made use of by the Biden government.”
The strongest point made in the piece was on the subject of trade and the economic relationship between Beijing and Washington.
As to the economic realities facing the two countries, the piece is blunt. The Times made clear that China’s economy is growing at a “sizzling pace” and if the US intends to benefit from that “reality” it should comply with Beijing ending its “selfish” doctrine of America First.
“Economic confrontations with China chosen by Trump’s team failed to do the US, or any country in this world, any good…[T]he incoming Biden administration needs to ponder its new policies, to reverse the course of the tumultuous policies of the past four years trumpeted by Trump.”
