Biden Taps Deep-Staters Who Betrayed Trump to Help w/ ‘Bipartisan’ Anti-China Bill

'This is clearly a national security issue, so we’ll be bringing together experts from both sides of the aisle, including Trump supporters...'

(John RansomHeadline USA) Two deep-state former national-security officials who worked in the Trump administration have been enlisted by the Biden administration to help pass an anti-China measure aimed at bolstering the semiconductor industry in the US, according to Axios.

“This is clearly a national security issue, so we’ll be bringing together experts from both sides of the aisle, including Trump supporters,” Biden Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo told Axios. “Every day that we wait is a day that we fall behind.”

But calling the former officials “Trump supporters” is a stretch of the imagination all too common for the radical propagandists in the Biden administration.

One such official, former national security adviser H.R. McMaster, is almost hyperbolic in his condemnation of Trump, even writing a tell-all book, that was more of a fit of hysteria than it was non-fiction.

After his 2018 resignation, McMaster has publicly undermined Trump on several occasions and was alleged to have allowed intelligence operatives to spy on Trump and his family.

It was widely speculated that McMaster had a role in planting anti-Trump “resistance” operatives like Alexander Vindman and Eric Ciaramella in the White House specifically to sabotage Trump, which they did.

Deputy National Security Advisor Matthew Pottinger, another top Trump official tapped by Biden, remained loyal until after the Jan. 6 protests, when he and other national-security officials made a show of resigning.

The move indicates, perhaps, a quiet acknowledgement that Trump’s China policies were successful, while still allowing Democrats to carp on the cult of personality surrounding the GOP leader that has proven effective at motivating much of the Left’s base.

It’s almost comical to see a one-worlder like a Biden—who denounced Trump’s China sanctions by saying, “His economic decision-making is … as shortsighted as the rest of his foreign policy”—suddenly convert to an America First economic agenda as he faces the firing squad of midterm elections.

Yet, the tactical shift may signal the growing desperation from Democrats to achieve some small measure of their bold, overreaching progressive agenda.

After all, the lack of semiconductors is imperiling Joe Biden’s vision of an electric car in the driveway of everybody who makes as much money as those people who live inside the Beltway.

But it may also be a tacit admission that the United States will write off Taiwan to China, as Taiwan, not China, makes 92% of all advanced semiconductors globally, according to the New York Times.

Saddling NeverTrump “conservatives” with the failed Biden administration policies would be a shrewd blame-sharing tactic to deflect from the fiascos that lie ahead, both diplomatically and economically.

“If the semiconductor supply chain is infringed upon by China in some way, all of the sudden the things that Americans look to in their daily lives, to get to and from work, to call their loved ones, to do a variety of different things, those disappear,” defense analyst Becca Wasser told the Times.

Ironically, the shortage could also impact the Biden adminitration’s ability to monger war with Russia—not to mention China.

“I shudder to think what other countries can do to the United States of America, with so many of our semiconductors produced outside of the country,” Raimondo said.
