China halts climate, military ties over Pelosi Taiwan visit

WASHINGTON (AP) — China announced Friday it was ending all contact with the United States on major issues — including crucial climate cooperation credited with leading to the international 2015 Paris accord — as tensions and public rebukes ratcheted higher between the two powers over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.

China’s move to freeze key lines of communication adds to a rapid souring of relations from Pelosi’s visit and from the Chinese response with military exercises off Taiwan, including firing missiles that splashed down in surrounding waters. The White House summoned China’s ambassador, Qin Gang, late Thursday to tell him that the military actions were of “concern to Taiwan, to us and to our partners around the world,” said spokesman John Kirby.

Ominously, experts in China-U.S. relations warned that China’s diplomatic and military moves appeared to go beyond retaliatory measures for the visit and could open a new, more openly hostile era, and a more uncertain time for Taiwan’s democratic government. China-U.S. relations are “in a downward spiral,” said Bonnie Glaser, head of the Asia program at the German Marshall Fund.

“And I think that China is likely to change the status quo in the Taiwan Strait in ways that are going to be harmful to Taiwan and are going to be disadvantageous to the United States,” Glaser said.

China will probably aggressively challenge freedom of navigation in the Taiwan Strait.

Way to go, Nancy ... and the Office of House Speaker has no Constitutional foreign policy role, whatsoever.

Biden should have refused her re-entry to the United States for undermining his foreign policy.

What crucial climate cooperation would that be, the conning of ignorant  and naive democrats into destroying America's economy and energy sector while they continue to build coal fired generation and pollute the environment worse than any other nation on Earth? And military cooperation? Is that what they stealing our defense secrets and what they can't steal they buy from democrats?

China is absolutely disgusting ... not much better than India, to be honest.  It is a fool's errand to enter into an environmental pact with them.

Because American politicians are corrupt short sighted greedy fools, half of U.S. military equipment, medical equipment, and prescription drugs have some involvement with Chinese parts and manufacturing. If China has cut military ties, no doubt that key parts, chips, and components needed to keep our military war machine active will be cut as well. This will have a HUGE impact on American military readiness.

And the Chinese knew this and know this the whole time. Bribe a couple of Congressmen with whores and money, and now WE control the American Military. LOL!

Good observation.

Why would the Chicoms abandon their best weapon (enviro-whacko-ism) to destroy their western adverseries?

I agree. This is going to break through the glass ceiling of incompetence and gaslighting by the politicians. What this will do, is to expose how fundamentally and foundationally dependent America has made itself to the whims of China. America has become so utterly dependent on China, I doubt America can function without them. And China knows this, full well.

Does this mean China will now refuse to sell solar panels and wind turbines to the US?

Please let it be so.

True. That's what this COVID bullshit is all about. Joe comes out and says, "I'm cured! I'm OK!" His controllers follow Joe's announcement in hours with, "NOPE, he's got COVID again." Get back to your basement Joe.

I think that last trip to the Middle East was his opus. He must have said or done something (maybe something we do not even know about) that caused even Soros and Obama to say, "That's enough. This guy has got to go. His melting brain dangerous." Maybe they are worried Biden may spill the beans about everything going on behind the scenes, even by accident. Quick! Get him back to his basement! NOW!

I doubt it will be Pelosi. Pelosi is a cutthroat with nothing to lose and is afraid of nothing and nobody. It is difficult to control someone that old. I think the cabal currently running the Presidency would be scared of her. She could easily turn on all of them and install herself as Empress of the World.

This current lunacy sweeping the internet saying women do not cause wars is diametrically opposed to all of history. Some of the longest and bloodiest wars and civil purges in history were run by Queens.

China will not sign on to the GND. I don't care what their lying mouths say. Actually, they are smarter. And you are 100 per cent correct about military cooperation.

Democrat Delusions ...

The kinder gentler Taliban 2.0 are fully onboard with all of our diversity LGTXYZ crap. They will help us fight global terrorism. <- a real thing they actually said and believed. This is why they gave the Taliban $70 Billion in top shelf war armaments and control over all the airports with a list of all American personnel assets in Afghanistan.

Xi/China is our friend and partner in Asia. China is fully onboard with all of our national suicide plans for eliminating fossil fuels and carbon emissions. <- of course they are onboard. China will never do any of this Green Deal self-immolation, but they are eager to help America kill itself. Of course they are.

First I don't think the puppeteers will let The Cackler choose The Mad Queen of Hearts as her VP, they have other plans to pick Harris's successor and that will surely not be another dementially challenged member of the Geritol club. Plus I just don't think you could even get a majority of democrats to approve the witch.

Don't be too sure, she knows where a lot of skeletons are buried. I do think she is maneuvering to get Newsome into the VP slot if Slo Joe takes a knee.
