During a keynote address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy Wednesday, President Biden tried to praise the female graduates, and instead ended up quoting a statement eerily similar to one made by the late Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedong.
This Coast Guard class of 2021 is saw more female graduates than before. Biden pointed out that one-third of the class is female. Then he shared a saying which, he said, “is a Chinese saying.” But, the problem was he didn’t know which Chinese figure he was quoting.
“There’s a saying…’Women hold up half the world,” Biden said. “It’s an absolutely stupid position not to make sure they represent at least half of what we do.”
Immediately, people on social media pointed out exactly who Biden was quoting. Others making jokes and calling Biden Zedong’s old title “Supreme Leader.”

Experts Say United States Vulnerable to ‘Electromagnetic’ Attack by Chinese
When Joe Biden was trying to convince Americans to vote for him to become the next President back in 2019, he belittled the concept that China is a danger to the U.S. “Come on man, China’s not a threat” said Biden.
Experts, however, continue to show just how wrong Biden has always been. Fox News reports “experts are warning that the United States is vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack from adversaries such as China, and that time is running out to invest in defending the country from it.”
Last week during a virtual forum hosted by the Universal Peace Federation, Peter Vincent Pry, the executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, said “that poses a real threat of possibly being able to win a war with a single blow by means of an EMP attack.”
“Moreover…they don’t envision employing an EMP by itself. It would be used in conjunction with cyberattacks and physical sabotage, and non-nuclear EMP” added Pry. Experts also warn that while an EMP attack would be “bloodless” at first, a yearlong blackout could kill roughly 90% of the American population.
The U.S. electric grid and other infrastructure – such as communications and transportation systems and water and sewer services – could all be devastated by such an attack, experts like Pry warn, noting that time is of the essence for the U.S. to defend itself.
China already possesses “super EMPs” and last summer tested a new hypersonic glide vehicle that analysts warn could deploy the EMP and cause a long-lasting blackout that would shut down key infrastructure and cripple the military’s ability to communicate.
A Pentagon report on Chinese military capabilities details how China has invested heavily in its EMP program, with a strategy that “emphasizes suppressing, degrading, disrupting or deceiving enemy electronic equipment throughout the continuum of a conflict while protecting its ability to use the cyber and electromagnetic spectrum.”
“The PLA is likely to use electronic warfare early in a conflict as a signaling mechanism to warn and deter adversary offensive action. Potential EW targets include adversary systems operating in radio, radar, microwave, infrared and optical frequency ranges, as well as adversary computer and information systems” adds the report.
