Things are heating up in Hong Kong.
The New York Times reports that activists are calling for a general strike and rallies on Monday, August 5, 2019.
Such unrest has led to massive disruptions on subway and rail lines. Additionally, more than 200 flights from the city’s airport have been cancelled.
These demonstrations are part of a larger wave of protests against an unpopular extradition bill that was introduced in recent months.
BLP covered these protests in June, which demanded that the extradition bill be killed, while also calling for the resignation of the city’s leader Carrie Lam.
These protestors have demanded more freedoms and have become increasingly suspicious of Hong Kong’s political elites, whom they believe are becoming gradually influenced by Beijing.
After much pressure, Lam pulled the extradition bill, but protests continue to rage on as the protestors want her to step down and they demand more freedoms.
There are rumors of a potential crackdown by Beijing should the protests escalate and the situation devolve into political chaos.
Conservative commentator Kurt Schlichter pointed out one very sobering detail about these protests:
“Note that HK citizens have no guns. Watch what happens to them. It’s coming. And I expect the Chinese will combine it with this trade war business to take the sanctions hit all at once.”

Then a poster followed up on Schlichter’s tweet thread with an image of a Hong Kong protestor holding a sign saying, “We need the 2nd Amendment.”

This demonstrates how lucky Americans are compared to other people around the world.
Although gun laws at the federal level still need work, Americans enjoy strong gun freedoms globally speaking.
In the Hong Kong case, this could be a matter of life or death, considering the Chinese government’s repressive nature.
The Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989 conjures up lurid imagery of the what the Chinese government is capable of doing to its citizens when it’s pressed against the wall.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.

Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
