On Monday, Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke at Davos Agenda, a virtual event organized by the World Economic Forum.

President Xi urged world leaders to put aside divisions and warned that a “new cold war” could turn hot, and must be avoided.

Moreover, Xi said that attempts to “isolate, intimidate, decouple and sanction” others will “only push the world into division, even confrontation.”

These were Xi’s first remarks to an international audience since the inauguration of President Joe Biden. The Biden administration has agreed with the Trump administration that China is committing “genocide” against the Uyghur Muslims.

“We should respect and accommodate differences, avoid meddling in other countries’ internal affairs and resolve disagreements through consultation and dialogue,” Xi said. “History and reality have made it clear time and again that the misguided approach of antagonism and confrontation — be it in the form of a cold war, hot war, trade war or tech war — will eventually hurt all countries’ interest and undermine everyone’s well-being.”

Under the Trump administration, tensions were high between China and the U.S.

The Chinese President explained his four-step approach to ensuring the world emerges stronger after the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in Wuhan, China.

According to Axios, the approach includes “macroeconomic policy coordination,” the avoidance of “arrogance, prejudice and hatred” in favor of “peaceful coexistence,” the reduction of global inequality, and the strengthening of global institutions on issues like public health and climate change.

Xi opposes the idea of imposing sanctions or seeking to “create isolation.” He warned that the pandemic should not be allowed to accelerate “decoupling” or the re-routing of supply chains, which is currently being debated in Washington.

Blood Money: New book shows how Bidens received $5M from Chinese criminal gang leader responsible for fentanyl pipeline to U.S.

Peter Schweizer detailed in his new book, Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans how Joe Biden is directly connected to the harrowing fentanyl crisis in the United States.

Breitbart.com reports on the revealing new book by Schweizer:

While Joe Biden was vice president, the Bidens developed a business partnership with a Chinese tycoon named Ye Jianming, the chairman of CEFC China Energy Co., which had strong ties to the Chinese Communist Party. Throughout Ye’s relationship with the Bidens, he “showered” some members of the Biden family with money, Schweizer reported. Hunter Biden received a three-carat diamond worth $80,000; and in July 2017, Ye’s company gave the Bidens a $5 million, interest-free, forgivable loan.

…But Ye also enjoyed a partnership with the former leader of a Chinese triad called the United Bamboo Gang (UBG), Schweizer detailed in Blood Money.  Ye’s partner’s name was Zhang Anle or, as he is commonly known, the “White Wolf.”

Ye’s business relationship blossomed with the “White Wolf,” Schweizer explains Blood Money. Schweizer writes that “White Wolf” became an important partner of the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico:

Ye and White Wolf set up the Shanghai Zhenrong Petroleum Company together. White Wolf’s gang, UBG, also has a “partnership” with Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel and helps them in the production and distribution of fentanyl in the United States. UBG helped to turn “the Sinaloa Cartel into the King of Fentanyl,” according to a Mexican investigation of the cartel.

White Wolf had been arrested and convicted in the 1980s on drug-trafficking and racketeering charges in the United States. The UBG is involved extensively in the international drug trade, having sold heroin in the United States for decades. As one government report stated, “It is believed the gang is active in several U.S. cities, including Chicago, Honolulu, Houston, Miami, Phoenix, and various California cities. The UBG has built up a sophisticated network capable of supplying members with guns, narcotics, and fraudulent identifications.” White Wolf also has close ties with the Beijing government; senior Communist Party officials call him “Big Brother.” The fact that a Chinese businessman who showered millions on the Bidens is partners with a crime syndicate partnering in the distribution of fentanyl into the United States might be shocking enough. But there is more.
