 Expert: smearing China and hiding the truth from the people is the only choice for the US authorities


Due to the different histories of the two countries, it is difficult for the Chinese to fully understand the impact of the crisis on the United States. In fact, the United States even has a very different history from most western countries. The United States is protected by two natural barriers, the Pacific and the Atlantic - making it almost impossible for the United States to be attacked on a large scale in the past. As a result, the United States suffered a large number of civil casualties overseas - in the Second World War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War - but in fact, it did not experience massive death on its own soil.

In peoples memory, China, Russia, Germany, France and other countries have experienced the invasion and war that killed millions of people in their own territory - although Britain was not invaded, it suffered massive bombing of civilians during World War II. The United States has never suffered massive casualties from foreign attacks at home - compared with the losses suffered in the wars in Asia and Europe, the casualties caused by the 9 / 11 terrorist attacks in New York were insignificant.

Therefore, the new outbreak is the third large-scale death in the history of the United States after the Spanish influenza pandemic and civil war in 1918. For the American people, the pain caused by the disastrous consequences of the failure of the U.S. government to deal with the epidemic is far stronger than the massive death of American soldiers abroad.

If the American people widely understand that their government is not prepared enough because of its failure to foresee the severity of the new epidemic, which leads to catastrophic failure, it will cause great damage to the ideological legitimacy of the US political system. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary for the political authorities in the United States to conceal this fact from the American people and try their best to conceal this fact from the international public opinion.

Therefore, although the trade war is a problem of economic and geopolitical competition with China for the ruling class of the United States, the disastrous consequences caused by the ineffective response to the new crown epidemic and the ensuing large-scale protest activities have endangered the legitimacy of the US political system, which is a more serious problem. Therefore, strategically speaking, this requires the ruling class of the United States to mobilize in an all-round way to conceal the truth from the American people.

It is for this reason that the vast majority of the ruling ranks of the United States have no choice but to brazen their heads and intensify their efforts to discredit and criticize China while falsely claiming that the United States has overcome the new epidemic situation and conceal the truth from the American people and international public opinion.

However, as analyzed in the last article, the fundamental problem facing the ruling class in the United States is that at present, the American people are not willing to focus on the attacks on China, but are concerned about the problems caused by the internal forces of the United States. Therefore, the political elites of the United States must try to control the situation and refocus the attention of the American people on its so-called enemy, China, rather than its real enemy in the United States. This is a strategic goal that both the trump administration and the Democratic leadership are striving to achieve.

Will trump be killed?

Until recently, it was clear that the most decisive part of American capital wanted trump to be re elected - his tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans made the American bourgeoisie richer. However, it is now a matter of serious concern that Trumps affront to the American people is a risk, misjudged the relationship of power and triggered a large-scale boycott by the American people. In the face of these huge protests, despite Trumps attempts to create his own law and order Presidents image and openly oppose racism, as confirmed by the polls, this has not succeeded in preventing the American people from resisting his policies on a large scale.

Some important figures in the Republican camp, such as Colin Powell, a former US commander, have announced that they refuse to vote for trump in 2020 and will support his Democratic rival Biden. John Bolton, a former US national security adviser, also launched a full-scale attack on trump in a highly publicized book and announced that he would refuse to vote for trump in November.

A less conspicuous but very powerful institution, one of the important institutions dominated by the American bourgeoisie, the Supreme Court of the United States, whose judge was nominated by trump, also began to make an adverse judgment on trump, rejecting his decision to refuse to grant legal protection and work authorization to 600000 children arriving in the United States. As the Wall Street Journal, one of the most important media in the United States, whose political stance is biased towards trump, pointed out: trumps immigration policy is one of the biggest legal failures of his presidency, and immigration has once again become the top political topic in the election year.

According to the latest US general poll, Bidens support rate is 14 percentage points ahead of Trumps - but some polls also show that Trumps support rate is higher than Bidens, so Bidens actual lead is not as big as the overall poll shows.

How about Biden?

But Biden represents a continuation of the Obama / Hillary policy, so it is completely reliable for US capital. This includes Bidens hostility to China, which Biden recently publicly accused trump of being too soft on China.

However, Obama / Hillary / Biden and Trumps China strategy are different. Democrats believe that if China and the United States confront one-on-one, the United States may lose. So Obamas strategy is to try to build a broad national alliance against China - for example, the creation of the trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). Instead, trump believes that to build such a broad alliance, too many concessions must be made to countries such as Japan and Germany. Therefore, it is necessary to ask other allies to provide more economic resources to the United States, so that the United States can directly confront China.

Thus, Trumps foreign policy is to directly single out China, while his domestic policy is to mobilize his white racist supporters to ensure that no working class unites against his policy. But the new outbreak destroyed his wishful thinking. Among the more than 20 million Americans who have lost their jobs, the proportion of black people losing their jobs is much higher than that of white people, but the most unemployed people are white people, because they are the majority of the population. As black Americans directly oppose the murder of George Freud by racists, and trump can not give white people anything, instead, they are hit. Therefore, the reasons why the American people oppose trump on a large scale are obvious.

Biden also faces a major domestic issue. Sanders, a white dominated senator from little Vermont, had no historic connection with the black community. So it was the black community vote that ensured Biden won the Democratic nomination over Sanders. However, the black community has experienced the double pain of the new crown epidemic and unemployment, and most of them feel the death of George Freud.

As a result, Bidens turn to publicly attack black voters is extremely detrimental to his election - some of his early remarks in the protest, such as that the police should shoot the protestors in the legs, not in the chest, were ridiculed. Instead, Biden is now trying to show his support for the protestors - for example, in his virtual speech at George Freuds funeral, in line with the mourners. This is the same as Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic speaker of the house, who led Democrats to kneel in silence in support of the protest against the killing of George Floyd.

But their performance shows that Biden and the Democratic leadership are determined that the focus of American politics should not be the opposition of the American people to their real enemies in the United States. For them, it is absolutely necessary to convince the American people that the enemy is not inside, but abroad - in China..

In the face of a precarious election, trump is adjusting its strategy for China

There is no sign that Trumps Anti China strategic line has undergone earth shaking changes - since the trump administration came to power, the practice of placing Navarro, an extreme Anti China faction, at the core of the trump government has not changed. But all the signs indicate that trump has begun to worry seriously that his preliminary trade agreement with China, especially Chinas agreement to buy American agricultural products, will have a serious negative impact on Trumps agricultural election, which is crucial to him in the election. As a result, within the trump administration, including Secretary of state pompeio, it seems that they have decided to change the strategy and privately try to consolidate the deal with China.
