Brad Johnson on China’s aggressions towards Taiwan

Brad Johnson

China continues its press to take over Taiwan by flying over the Taiwan Straits and the country itself. The CCP also declared it will shoot at any ships crossing its waters. Will Biden and the Democrats offer more substantial help to this free country or are they too invested in the CCP?

brad johnson it is again january the
00:02
24th of 2021
00:05
and uh i’m just looking at the stuff
00:07
that goes that all my great readers send
00:09
in every morning to the comments
00:11
and there seems to be a lot of stuff
00:13
going on with china they overflew
00:15
taiwanese airspace with
00:17
multiple bombers and fighter uh there’s
00:20
a lot of activity on their fake
00:22
and natural islands in the south china
00:24
sea i think it is
00:26
um it almost looks i mean if you were
00:29
to an untrained observer it almost looks
00:31
like china is taking advantage of this
00:32
new administration
00:34
to up uptick its aggression against its
00:37
traditional
00:38
sort of enemies quite a bit can you give
00:40
us any insight into what’s going on
00:42
there yeah i mean that’s precisely right
00:45
they’re doing as many as say five
00:46
overflights over the taiwan straits and
00:49
over the island and things like that
00:51
they have become uh exceptionally
00:54
aggressive towards taiwan
00:55
they’re even making threats at their
00:57
coast guard now one of the things that
00:59
the us navy does
01:00
is they’ll go up and down the taiwan
01:03
straits which is essentially
01:04
going between china mainland communist
01:08
china
01:08
and taiwan and they will go they’ll sail
01:12
through those areas the chinese navy has
01:14
now said
01:15
that their coast guard will fire on
01:18
ships now they don’t say we’re gonna
01:19
fire the us navy they just say we’re
01:20
gonna fire on ships going through these
01:22
so they’re
01:23
they’re drawing lines in the sand
01:25
becoming very aggressive
01:26
quite territorial about this there’s
01:28
always been this
01:30
i gotta say it’s gotten to the point
01:31
where it’s getting pretty freaking
01:33
stupid
01:33
there’s always been this one china rule
01:35
where for many years in the national
01:38
security council of the united nations
01:41
all of china was represented by taiwan
01:44
the
01:44
nationalist chinese and a democratic
01:47
china and that finally got overturned in
01:50
communist china then took that seat at
01:52
the united nations but both have always
01:54
said there’s one china well
01:57
you know the fact is there’s two china’s
01:59
in that sense so maybe what we should do
02:00
is all grow up and put on our big boy
02:02
pants and just say
02:03
look there’s two chinas we recognize
02:04
taiwan as an independent country
02:06
they do have their own passports and all
02:08
those things already and it’s something
02:10
that i
02:11
you know i think we should do now china
02:13
would would would pitch an enormous fit
02:15
but then that allows us to have
02:17
a kind of separate relationship with
02:19
taiwan where we can actually give them
02:21
the military aid they need uh quite a
02:24
little bit went to
02:25
uh for their aging air force
02:28
uh in upgrading their aircraft no new
02:30
aircraft
02:31
you know better models were sold to them
02:34
but they did
02:34
get quite a few of the electronic
02:36
packages and things like that for
02:37
targeting and
02:38
you know all those sorts of things you’d
02:39
expect that made those aircraft
02:42
way more dangerous you know air
02:43
superiority and all of that so
02:46
there was progress made under the trump
02:48
years but
02:49
now that’s all dead and gone i mean
02:51
let’s just face it the democratic party
02:53
is in the pocket of china and these guys
02:55
a lot of them are making a lot of money
02:57
off of it
02:58
you can see they declare it and i mean
03:00
this isn’t stuff i’m making up you can
03:02
go research it
03:03
and see that you know their spouses have
03:05
contracts and china and
03:07
millions and millions of dollars are
03:08
coming and pouring into their into their
03:10
pockets so
03:11
this is one of those things where uh
03:15
you know certainly the what we’ve seen
03:17
this hunter biden fiasco
03:18
there was that information out there off
03:20
of his laptop that said he was taking
03:22
that
03:22
10 million dollar bribe from the chinese
03:24
which is
03:25
implied in there that he was splitting
03:27
with his dad and his uncle the
03:29
president biden’s brother all of that
03:31
stuff is implied
03:33
which by the way now that biden has been
03:36
inaugurated you have these occasional
03:37
republicans
03:38
that are coming up and mentioning all
03:40
that stuff that
03:41
that kind of frost me i look at those
03:43
guys as traders because
03:44
where were they when when we needed them
03:46
back when when
03:48
trump was still president when they
03:50
could have been out fighting this fight
03:51
and making all those points out there
03:53
about how it looks like
03:55
a very serious case of corruption by the
03:57
biden family it certainly
03:58
appears to be the case they could have
04:00
made that argument publicly but
04:01
now that trump is gone now they’re
04:03
standing up and going gee i’m that i you
04:05
know this effective republican arguing
04:07
for the people you know what
04:09
you know so i i i really look down on
04:12
those guys and view them as town amount
04:13
10 amount to traders not
04:15
traders in the legal sense to the united
04:16
states of america but traders
04:18
based on their ideals that they’re
04:20
supposed to represent and how they’re
04:21
supposed to represent the american
04:23
people
04:23
they’re traitors to the to the ideals in
04:26
that sense
04:26
so what we’ve got now is this case where
04:30
the democrats are now letting china get
04:32
back to business as usual
04:34
taiwan is taiwan i mean uh communist
04:36
china
04:37
and communist china has already stepped
04:39
in been hugely aggressive
04:41
they’re doing a lot of things like in
04:43
canada they were going to train until
04:44
they got caught
04:45
they were going to do mountain cold
04:47
weather training in canada
04:48
the chinese military with the canadian
04:50
military why you know that would be so
04:53
that they
04:53
could they would have effective trained
04:55
troops that they could use in these
04:57
mountainous areas that they’re
04:58
fighting over with india so i mean
05:00
they’re planning
05:01
and looking for a very aggressive
05:03
strategy to expand
05:06
uh their you know their their country
05:09
they’re going to try to expand the areas
05:11
under their direct control
05:13
certainly india’s got this figured out
05:14
there they have you know they are afraid
05:16
of this situation
05:18
and they’re seeing these these
05:19
combinations of pakistan also long time
05:22
enemy
05:23
uh and china hooking up the two of them
05:26
in cooperation
05:27
and india is worried so we’ve seen this
05:29
in the south
05:30
china sea these areas there’s been law
05:32
cases and people are running afraid
05:34
and now we’ve got the united states of
05:36
america backing down and letting china
05:38
go
05:39
run rome free again
05:42
and again where are the republicans
05:45
where are they we see all of these
05:47
things all of this aggression towards
05:49
taiwan
05:50
we saw hong kong just absorbed and
05:53
basically uh you know all freedoms
05:56
stamped out under this
05:57
iron boot heel of communism and where
05:59
are the republicans in all this what are
06:01
they doing
06:02
and they’re not even that you don’t even
06:04
stand up to be counted and at least
06:06
point out that this is all wrong and
06:07
that we should be doing more we should
06:09
be supplying you know advanced fighter
06:11
aircraft to taiwan
06:12
to give those poor guys a chance to
06:14
defend themselves
06:16
and nobody’s doing anything the
06:17
republican party has turned into the
06:19
loyal opposition who are completely
06:21
ineffective the democrats have gone over
06:23
to china
06:24
and now you know if you want to vote for
06:25
china you got plenty of people to vote
06:26
for here in the united states but if you
06:28
want to vote for
06:29
the u.s constitution and american values
06:32
and
06:32
freedom and all of those things who do
06:34
you vote for anymore it’s just it’s
06:36
really turned into a goat rope and
06:38
uh under the democrats china it’s going
06:40
to be very aggressive worldwide and i
06:41
think they’re going to make big advances
06:43
over the next four years
06:45
just to bring us back to trudeau for a
06:46
second it’s worth noting
06:49
that while he even recently has but from
06:52
the beginning has been coming out and
06:53
saying everybody
06:55
has to basically stay in their own homes
06:57
and isolate themselves
06:58
uh he hasn’t stopped a single flight at
07:01
any time from coming in from china to
07:03
canada
07:04
so and you’ve got to ask yourself
07:07
is you know trudeau you know are
07:10
the canadian people really such big
07:12
supporters of china that you want to
07:14
help them again in a war against india
07:16
is that where canada is at these days i
07:18
mean trudeau maybe you know
07:20
and his cronies and all that but i i
07:22
just cannot believe
07:23
that the canadian people would get
07:25
behind the idea of training chinese
07:27
troops to go to war
07:28
with india i just i cannot believe that
07:30
that’s the case i
07:32
this must be i i i know all this is
07:34
being suppressed by cbc and all of that
07:37
in canada you don’t see this reporting
07:38
there either it’s
07:39
we’re all in the same pile of doo-doo
07:41
together
07:42
trying to get the actual accurate
07:45
information out there for people to look
07:46
at and act on and it’s a
07:48
it’s an uphill battle but uh no reason
07:50
not to fight and
07:51
at least here at air we’re in it to the
07:53
end and i know you are there doing these
07:55
so
07:55
uh we gotta do
08:27

1 thought on “Brad Johnson on China’s aggressions towards Taiwan

  1. Isn’t it utterly bizarre that the outgoing administration considered that they, i.e. the country, the United States of America, were “at war” with China, and now the new administration seems to have changed this status with neither a fight nor a peace agreement and not even with a debate. Meanwhile the US military/navy is present to defend Taiwan.

    This new administration doesn’t make any sense. It is a situation that cannot possibly be upheld for very long since it is also untenable diplomatically.

    Meanwhile Americans begin to suffer the consequences of the election result, and they continue to fight for election integrity. They fight and offer up their free time while they were doing the right thing all along. Those who experience an injustice, as it were, not only suffer from what was done to them; they also have to bear the brunt of taking their case/s to the courts and fight for justice… all the sweat and tears, hopes and fears! The constitutional path to justice shouldn’t be so hard IMO.
