China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs is again ruthlessly mocking President Joe Biden for his dramatic response to the objects shot down by U.S. fighter jets over North America while he turns a blind eye to the environmental disaster unfolding in East Palestine, Ohio after officials set fire to deadly chemicals spilled by a derailed train.
During his regular press briefing, Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin was asked to comment on White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s claim that, by imposing sanctions on U.S. defense contractors, China is “deflecting.”
The reporter quoted Jean-Pierre as saying, “At the end of the day, [China’s] surveillance balloon was indeed in our airspace.” She added, “all of the American people, the entire world saw what China did, and it was irresponsible.”
Wang tore into Biden, accusing his administration of focusing on China while Americans suffer.
“Speaking of ‘deflecting,’ can the U.S. tell us why it is able to see the ‘balloon’ 18,000 meters above the ground, but seems to have been blind to the toxic mushroom cloud of vinyl chloride over Ohio?” Wang asked in response.
As BizPac Review reported, President Biden doesn’t need China to criticize him. He’s already being ridiculed for his administration’s apparent lack of concern for the cloud of cancer-causing chemicals currently hovering over the farmland community.
“Now, we don’t know if the locals in East Palestine are drinking the water tonight but we can tell you that the Joe Biden administration doesn’t seem very concerned about either way,” Fox News’s Tucker Carlson stated earlier this week. “Donald Trump got over 71% of the vote in the county in the last presidential election, so that is not exactly the democratic party’s core demographic. Fentanyl, toxic waste spill, whatever they are not our voters, and by the way, what does a chemical spill have to do with climate change?”

By all appearances, Carlson was correct.
“This week, Biden’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) turned down Ohio’s request for federal aid to deal with the environmental disaster,” Fox News reports.
To make matters more humiliating, it now appears Biden authorized the use of a $200 million fighter jet and a $400,000 missile to shoot down what might have been a $12 balloon belonging to Illinois hobbyists.
On the same day the jet took out a mysterious object off Alaska, the Northern Illinois Bottlecap Balloon Brigade (NIBBB) said their pico balloon went missing off the west coast of the state.

“To be fair,” Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) tweeted, “Biden is providing is powerful deterrence for any high school science clubs that might try to invade America….”

But Wang didn’t stop with a balloon jab or taunts over a train wreck.
The Ministry spokesman suggested that the Biden administration is using the balloon incident to deflect from the destruction of Russia’s Nord Stream pipeline — a shocking act of sabotage for which many claim President Biden is culpable.
“Why was it vocal about investigations and accountability immediately after the Nord Stream blast, and yet unusually silent in the wake of the latest investigative report written by a US journalist?” Wang asked, referring to an explosive report from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh, who claimed the bombs that blew the pipelines up were planted by the U.S. Navy.

With respect to the balloons, which Biden said on Thursday were “most likely balloons tied to private companies, recreation or research institutions studying weather or conducting other scientific research,” Wang said, “If the US does not consider the appearance of these objects in US airspace to be irresponsible, why jab its fingers at China?”
“The US should not have overreacted and abused the use of force,” Wang stated, “still less use the incident for political manipulation or to smear and attack China.”
