On Monday, July 13, Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic Party presidential candidate, spoke at a digital event to raise funds for his campaign, in which some 14 wealthy donors participated. The event was organized and hosted by Valerie Jarrett, a former senior adviser for the Obama administration and John and Marcia Goldman, two wealthy financiers.
According to an article in the Washington Examiner, Biden said, “We need to get real economic relief into the hands of women now … women are holding up half the sky.” The reporter watching the live stream said the phrase was a Chinese proverb.
However, “women hold up half the sky” was a phrase used by the Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong some 70 years ago when he promised an equal society and more power for women. The number of deaths under Mao Zedong’s dictatorship was around 70 million; between famines, murders, torture, he is one of the bloodiest dictators humanity has ever seen.
In the past, Joe Biden has used words, phrases, or ideas from other people as if they were his own.
On the same day, the Trump social media team released a video compilation displaying Biden be caught plagiarizing.
I will bet anyone reading this $1,000 that this video shows Democrat Joe Biden caught lying !
Joe Biden's lies are legendary too. As the last year has proved, he's still the same dishonest plagiarist he was 33 years ago. #DemocratsArePsychopaths

The compiled video created by the Media Research Center shows at least two instances where Joe Biden used part of another politician’s speech, without giving credit to the author.
In the first example, Joe Biden used almost the same words as Neil Kinnock, former leader of the UK Labour Party. The researchers then played an audio recording of Joe Biden using the same words that Robert Kennedy used in a law school speech.
And even more serious, during a political campaign amid a group of people in New Hampshire, Biden said: “I went to law school on a full scholarship; I was the only one in my class on a full scholarship. I ended up in the top half of the students. I was the top student in the political science department. I graduated with three degrees …”
But Biden ended up 76th in a class of 85 students. He had half a scholarship and only got one degree, according to the video.
As the video closes, reporters pose a question, “If he’s going to do things that are stupid and immoral, then he’s probably too dumb to have the job of a president … voters are going to have to decide whether he was dishonest or dumb.”
The topic of China has also gotten into the feud between Biden and President Trump, as Biden began to publish tweets promising an “American-made” industry and criticizing President Trump for being weak with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). However, President Trump’s stance with the CCP has been one of his “promises kept.”
While President Trump initially praised Chinese leader Xi Jinping and signed new trade agreements with the CCP, he imposed hefty tariffs on Chinese imports. He managed to balance trade, causing the CCP to purchase more American products. With a strongman like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, sanctions were imposed on human rights violators in China. Tighter control was applied to the Chinese media that serve as a mouthpiece for CCP propaganda in the United States.
As the pandemic continues, President Trump has openly declared his discomfort with the Chinese Communist Party’s handling of information that would have been key to preventing the CCP Virus (COVID-19).
In an interview with Fox Business, the president said, “I don’t want to talk to him right now,” alluding to the fact that his good relationship with Xi was affected by his handling of the pandemic.
