I believe all my readers know how I feel about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her shady politics and investing.
I’ve written many times on how her and her husband have made millions while her alleged “fellow Americans” suffered greatly.
Well now one of Pelosi’s summer junkets is causing the US military to escalate troop movements and security measures in the Pacific if she follows through with her planned Taiwan visit.
“If there’s a decision made that Speaker Pelosi or anyone else is going to travel and they asked for military support, we will do what is necessary to ensure a safe conduct of their visit,” the woke Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said. “And I’ll just leave it at that.”
If Pelosi travels to Taiwan to research her latest stock picks, then the US armed forces will be put on “high alert”.
“If the US side insists on making the visit, the Chinese side will take firm and strong measures to safeguard our sovereignty and territorial integrity,” Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Zhao Lijian said.
“The U.S. must assume full responsibility for any serious consequence arising thereof,” Lijian added.
You would think the Biden administration would secretly tell Pelosi not to tread too heavily at this time. Yet both are collecting millions from defense contractors for their camps that this goes unseen.
Tensions between the U.S. and China have escalated in recent months over conflict related to Taiwan, an independently-governed country that China perceives as part of the mainland.
Milley announced Sunday that the number of dangerous interceptions between U.S. and Chinese forces in the South Pacific has escalated in 2022, and China has used unusually strong language opposing the U.S. ahead of Pelosi’s possible visit.
China confirmed prior threats of possible military action should House Speaker Pelosi follow through on Monday.
Chances are Pelosi’s actions with China this time will be far worse than her 2020 declaration that Chinatown dinning was safe at the beginning of the CoVid-19 pandemic.
