Several high-level national security and foreign policy officials selected to join the Joe Biden administration signed a letter advocating for collaboration between the U.S. and China to “develop” a vaccine.
Among the signatories on the letter are those who would formulate the Biden administration’s foreign policy approach: potential Secretary of State Antony Blinken, potential National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, and potential Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines.
The letter comes from Asia Society, a pro-China lobby group which sponsors several Chinese Communist Party-funded Confucius Institutes across the United States.
While the letter states that “China has much to answer for in its response to the coronavirus,” it still urges the U.S. government to hand over swathes of “scientific data… medical practices… efforts to step up production and distribution of medical supplies… and clinical trials for vaccine and treatment research, testing, production, and distribution.”
In other words: despite China lying about the origin of the virus and undertaking a global cover-up attempt, American taxpayers are expected by Team Biden, to lay down before the Chinese Communist Party.
Included in the letter is a call for the U.S. to collaborating with China on the development of a vaccine for COVID-19, along with insisting the U.S. can rely on China for “protective gear and medicines needed to fight the virus”:
“China’s factories can make the protective gear and medicines needed to fight the virus; its medical personnel can share their valuable clinical experience in treating it; and its scientists can work with ours to develop the vaccine urgently needed to vanquish it.”
In other words, Biden’s picks for various key agencies see the pandemic as a chance to further increase reliance on China for personal protective equipment and medication, and indeed hand over massive amounts of U.S. scientific effort to Chinese Communists.
In addition to endangering national security, these China-manufactured products are often faulty.
The advocacy for increased scientific collaboration with China also runs the perennial risk of intellectual property theft.
Other signatories on the letter include Susan Rice and Biden’s Obama-era pick for China Ambassador Max Baucus.
