It’s good that you, Biden and the US military seem to have decided that a stopover or even a stopover in Taipei is an unnecessary provocation that would not serve the interests of Americans, Taiwanese or the rest of the world. Apparently war hawks and aspiring Republican leaders, such as former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who tweeted that they would accompany you on your eventual trip to Taiwan, have also chickened out.
This development appears to be taking place following Chinese state media commentator and Global Times editor Hu Xijin’s warning on Twitter that you and other congressmen accompanying you will be targeted.
“If American fighter jets escort Pelosi’s plane to Taiwan, it’s an invasion. The Chinese military has the right to forcibly drive out Pelosi’s plane and US fighter jets, including firing warning shots and performing tactical obstruction moves. If they’re ineffective, shoot them down,” Xijin wrote in a tweet, which was deleted for violating Twitter rules.
Given the conservative media’s backbiting of you and Biden over the apparent capitulation to Beijing, you might still want to change your mind.
But here are some tips that will serve not only the cause of peace but also your own political and financial interests.
First, as America’s third most important political leader, you should focus on your country’s domestic issues rather than embarking on what has been described as a publicity-seeking excursion or a propaganda exercise by your Republicans and Democrats. colleagues and the conservative media.
As a representative of California’s 12th congressional district, you should know that your district – like the rest of San Francisco – is in a deep crisis due to homelessness, drugs, crime and safety, migrants, climate change and a host of other socio-economic and political issues. issues that have been mishandled or left unattended for the past decade or more.
You will have known the seriousness of these domestic problems even before being elected more than 30 years ago. It is better for the voters who have put their faith and trust in you that you devote the rest of your political time to solving these problems instead of wandering into parts of the world that interest or concern you little. The fact that you’re doing this during the Congressional summer recess is still no excuse for this particular getaway.
By comparing. a trip to the border with Mexico to help shine a light on how the United States is mishandling its worst migration crisis would be a bigger PR win for you and the Democrats. It would certainly bolster your official resume that praises your liberal and progressive national record.
Some less charitable critics have suggested that it’s also best for you to spend more time mentoring your husband who has apparently taken a beating in the stock market recently. Paul rightly sold $4.1 million worth of Nvidia stock at a loss, a filing shows as Congress considered legislation offering billions of dollars in grants and tax credits to help the U.S. semis industry -drivers. According to reports, this sale cost the Pelosi family $341,365 in the transaction.
Earlier, you will have received criticism of Paul’s Nvidia stock purchases, which led to calls to crack down on insider trading in Congress. According to Washington Examiner who considers you the most important woman leader in the world
Pelosi and her husband are already incredibly wealthy. But their behavior in this regard testifies to a sense of entitlement that goes beyond any wealth. She wants one set of rules for everyone else in the country — they’re not allowed to trade inside information even if they somehow get it — and another for her and her family.
