Biden Lobbying Against Sanctions for Treatment of Uyghurs

The Biden administration is lobbying against including sanctions for Chinese treatment of Uyghurs in order to protect a possible climate deal.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Republican senator Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Democratic senator Jeff Merkley (Ore.) introduced a bill in January prohibiting the importation of goods made with forced labor from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, where a genocide perpetrated by the Chinese government is afoot. It passed the Senate in a voice vote in July.

It was more controversial at Foggy Bottom, where we now know that Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman and John Kerry, Biden’s special envoy for climate, have been lobbying their fellow Democrats against including the measure in the annual defense bill.

The reasons are equally comical and demented. Kerry is lusting for a Nobel Peace Prize for his climate work, which requires the cooperation of the Chinese. To hell with the Uyghurs so long as Kerry gets the international accolades that his failed presidential run and bumbling tenure as secretary of state didn’t give him.

Xinjiang is home to roughly half of the world’s supply of polysilicon, a raw material used to produce solar panels. A ban on its importation would send a message to the Chinese communists that the United States won’t tolerate its barbarous behavior.

Senator Merkley has continued his support for the sanctions despite the push against them.

Biden is a total illiterate when it comes to Foreign Policy. He uses it for Personal Goals.

The political boycott of the winter olympics is the least he can do so he can say he took a “tough” stand but we all see who he really is; he and Hunter are making big bucks off of China and Uncle Joe (that’s what they used to call Joe Stalin!) wants a climate deal on top of that. He will sell out this country to score points over the over-stated climate issue! What a POS !!!

The one problem I see is that China will not go along with the Biden Climate Deal.

Kerry’s tolerance of China’s abuse of the Uyghurs is based on his personal investment in Chinese companies, even while held in a “blind Trust” for the Kerry-Heinz families. Remember, John Kerry only does that which benefits him.

I truly don’t understand how political people can look themselves in the eye when China , Afganistan, and other countries can overlook theses kind of things. Don’t they remember the camps in Poland, Germany, Austria et al. Or maybe they only see their wallets getting fatter while these people starve and are abused.

note above comment. If the scenario were reversed, there wouldn’t be just camps, there would be lots of Chinese awaiting executions, beheadings, etc! That is the ilk of muslimes.
