Given that Blinken appears to have been part of Chinese United Front efforts to influence American policy for some time now, why would anyone ever think he would want to oppose Xi Jinping and his cronies? As Director of the Penn Biden Center, Blinken presided over an entity that was funded in large measure by the Chinese and which seems to have been dedicated primarily to pushing Chinese propaganda inside the United States.
The newest addition to Xi Jinping’s Dream Team is Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the new U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. During her recent confirmation hearing before the Senate she assured Senators she would take a tough line on China, but that seems difficult to believe given her past behavior.
