Daily Mail: Joe Biden to announce 'diplomatic boycott' of 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics this week that will see US government officials snub games - but Team USA athletes will still compete 

* Diplomatic boycott of the Winter Games expected to be announced this week 

* US officials would not attend the game but American athletes could compete 

* Biden said last month he was considering such a move over human rights issues 

* The Peng Shuai affair has added to concerns about athlete rights and safety 

* Republicans in Congress have called for a full boycott of the Games in February 

The Biden administration is expected to announce this week a limited diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Olympics in Beijing, according to a new report. 

Under the proposed boycott, U.S. government officials will not attend the Winter Olympics in February, but American athletes would still participate and compete, CNN reported on Sunday. 

President Joe Biden said last month that he was considering such a diplomatic boycott to protest China's human rights record, including what Washington says is genocide against ethnic minority Uighur Muslims.

Trying to thread the needles with targeted boycotts. That is an interesting concept. The US used targeted sanction to sanction Russian oligarchs but not Russians over the Russian takeover of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. I was for it. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Target the movers and shakers of a country without harming the every day people seemed like a good idea. It did not work.

Targeted boycott is supposed to hurt the Chinese leaders or the prestige of China hopes to gain form the games, but not hurt American athletes, which on the face of it is a good idea. It won't shift public opinion polling 1 point outside the western world and inside the Western world it will be forgotten in 2 weeks. The 2 weeks is human psychology and also how the media people have set up the system.

Why should a diplomatic boycott work any better than the fake Joe Biden presidency?

We have a person or persons who have done one or a mixture of the following:

a) They ran a demented person for president
b) Joe is a pathological or habitual liar.
c) Joe knows exactly what he is doing and this is a technique to distract people from something else. See Joe's claims below.

"The Six-Day War, also known as the June War, the 1967 Arab–Israeli War was an armed conflict fought from 5 to 10 June 1967"

“I was saying to a couple younger members of my staff before I came over, ... about the many times I’ve been to Israel. And I said – and then all of a sudden I realized, ‘God, you’re gettin’ old, Biden – I have known every prime minister well since Golda Meir, including Golda Meir. And during the Six-Day War, I had an opportunity to, uh — she invited me to come over because I was going to be the liaison between she and the Egyptians about the Suez, and so on and so forth.

In 1967 Biden was plagiarizing at the Syracuse University College of Law until about 1968.

Joes' diplomatic boycott won't work any better than his lies of being a diplomatic envoy for Israel while in law school in New York state.

Xi and the Chinese communists want a few things by holding the Olympic games. They want to propagandize the Chinese people. They will be successful. The diplomatic boycott won't register or won't hurt. they want world prestige. they will get some of it. The US diplomatic boycott might move the needle among intelligentsia in the Western world, but overall it won't move the needle in the West but temporarily.

The Biden people should recognize the technique. The main audience of the Olympics for the purposes of the PRC is the Chinese people. It is similar to the hollow summits, which are empty of results, that Joe Biden holds, so the MSM can show Biden as engaged and virile.

When The Washington Post Fact Checker team first started cataloguing President Donald Trump’s false or misleading claims, we recorded 492 suspect claims in the first 100 days of his presidency. On Nov. 2 alone, the day before the 2020 vote, Trump made 503 false or misleading claims as he barnstormed across the country in a desperate effort to win reelection.

This astonishing jump in falsehoods is the story of Trump’s tumultuous reign. By the end of his term, Trump had accumulated 30,573 untruths during his presidency — averaging about 21 erroneous claims a day.

What is especially striking is how the tsunami of untruths kept rising the longer he served as president and became increasingly unmoored from the truth.

11:02, The Washington Post Fact Checker team checking President Trump is similar to Alec Baldwin promoting gun control.

You would think that 11:02/11:04 having lived during the 6 Day war, having knowledge of Israeli history, and supposedly having a a brain, would easily pick out Joe Biden's 6 Day War lie.

11:02 is a self-avowed atheist. No probs. It is a free country. Also, convinced against your will is unconvinced still. But 11:02 is is Jewish in culture, if not by religion. Sorry, alleging 11:02 is Jewish in culture is a bit of a stretch. Be that as it may, you would think 11:02 would know Jewish and Israeli history. After all his sonny boy was in the IDF!

Poor 11:02

discount the Wash Post fact checking?
Prove them wrong
and google and you will find a dozen other posts from various sources that show the thousands of Trump lies. I challenge you to do this and then discount what I had said

After the Russian Hoax, libtards it is not worth the time to go point by point over the fake fact checking by libs. Usually they are college kids doing the fact checking to buttress the MSM which lies all the time.

Usually when a person tries to go point by point with you, you spam, call names or leave.

One of the libturd talking points is the border wall. Trump did more than any other president and libturds call it a lie. Tells you everything you need to know about liberal fact checking.

1. stalker continues...get a life
2. you simply cannot call a source fake, ie Trump, and dismiss it and that make you right and the source wrong. I said Prove them wrong on fact check and you could not, would not.
3. If you read up on the history of the Olympics you will then see what athletes had to say about being barred by their country, that is some went and stated they could not nor would not stay home.
4. what alternative do you offer other than dissing Biden?
a. no response to China
b. diplomatic boycott (that Biden doing)
c. barring all American athletes from attending (is that legal?)
5. Now, macho dudes: tell us what You would suggest be done

There are two alternatives. The first alternative is to have boycott, but get enough other nations to support it. The second alternative is to have no boycott of any sort. We have been down this path before and Joe Biden did not learn a god damn thing, but he was supposed to be ready on day one!

"The boycott had been ordered by President Jimmy Carter in response to the recent Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, but the White House knew that a failure to get other nations to similarly boycott could


embarrass the U.S.


and render its move to sit out the games ineffective. "

You cannot find that out on your own? So you can find pictures, but not written documents.

Illiterate much?
