Did Biden just lose his ‘Chess Queen’ to Putin because of Obama’s Globalism Folly?

The Chicago Tribune – Yahoo news article titled: China Opposing Russia Sanctions, reported:

“We will not join such sanctions, and we will keep normal economic, trade and financial exchanges with all the relevant parties,”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate ancient wisdom verse and idiom to discern this conundrum.

King Solomon

King Solomon gave the queen of Sheba all she desired and asked for, besides what he had given her out of his royal bounty. Then she left and returned with her retinue to her own country. (1 kings 10:13)


In political communication, the phrase “you are either with us, or against us” and similar variations are used to depict situations as being polarized and to force witnesses, bystanders, or others unaligned with some form of pre-existing conflict to either become allies of the speaking party or lose favor. 

Chess (Queen)

The queen (♕, ♛) is the most powerful piece in the game of chess, able to move any number of squares vertically, horizontally or diagonally, combining the power of the rook and bishop.

What’s My Point?

The choice Obama made during his presidency to allow the USA to outsource manufacturing to global sources instead of listening to advice doing so would make the USA dependent for vital goods and services to China may now prevent Biden from winning the Biden Putin Chess match over Ukraine.

For example, Biden has managed to ally Europe Countries to sacrifice and risk of Putin’s power of being their major supplier of a gas and oil energy in an effort to win his chess match with Putin.

However, now that China has made known they will not join the alliance, and the USA is now dependent on China’s manufacturing power gained by Obama’s decision that manufacturing will never return to the USA and the USA is better off economically as a service industry, in effect, the decision has just resulted in the USA relinquishing its most powerful chess piece, the Queen to Putin.

In My Opinion

In previous posts I brought up Ukraine as an analogy of a chess match between Biden and Putin to win Ukraine.

China by not joining the Biden alliance, is equivalent to o serve tdefeat Ukraine because Russia cannot be isolated economically as long as they can sell their gas and oil to China and overcome Bidens chess game to cut off Russia’s ability to finance his ambitions.

Sadly, USA dependence on China for manufactured goods and services as a result of Obama decision to rely entirely on global sources has served to defeat his former VP chess strategy.

You Decide

Was King Solomon wise to recognize the power of the Queen of Sheba in his chess game that was successful in her become a powerful ally. Whereas Obama chose China and globalism which has resulted in folly because China decided to ally with Russia which in turn bears out the idiom, “if they aren’t with us, they are against us?”

Will Ukraine experience serve as a sad lesson for the analogy of the USA Queen (Manufacturing) to Then she left and returned with her retinue to her own country?
