Hong Kong Protests Continue in Full Force

Published

on

ZeroHedge reports that citizens of Hong Kong have been out in the streets protesting an extradition bill put forward by City Executive Carrie Lam.

This bill, the Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation (Amendment) Bill 2019, which was introduced on February 2019, would have made it easier to transfer fugitives to Mainland China and subject them to Chinese law.

Many of the demonstrators worried about the increased risk of Hong Kong citizens and foreign nationals passing through the city being shipped off to mainland China, where they would stand trial in Chinese courts.

Some analysts such as Agnes Chow argued that if this bill were to pass, Hong Kong “will be over.”

Lam actually yielded to the pressure and has suspended the extradition bill indefinitely. However, there is reason to believe that this bill will be making a comeback in the near feature. There is tremendous pressure from China to ram this bill through, which could put Hong Kong independence in jeopardy.

Despite Lam’s concession on Saturday, June 15, 2019, protestors continued to come out in force. On Sunday, 2 million people marched in protest demanding that Lam resign for introducing such a bill.

Since Hong Kong’s sovereignty was handed over to China in 1997, it has maintained considerable autonomy in economic and political affairs. In fact, it is ranked as the world’s freest economy according to the Heritage Foundation’s 2019 Index of Economic freedom.

However, the Beijing regime has always had plans of fully incorporating Hong Kong into its political system and turning into an appendage of the Chinese state.

Under Xi Jinping’s regime, China has undergone a politician transformation featuring some of the most advanced censorship schemes in human history. In efforts to consolidate his rule, Xi is cracking down on dissent and trying to put autonomous regions like Hong Kong under his thumb.

Should China succeed, Hong Kong could lose its vaunted status as one of the freest regions in the globe.

Texas Republican Chairman Allen West Calls on Texans to Reject Democrats’ Radical Open Borders Agenda

No one in Texas should vote Democrat.

Since assuming the position of Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas earlier this year, retired Army Lieutenant Army Colonel Allen West has made his presence felt in Texas politics.

Unlike the flaccid political leadership that preceded him, West is outspoken about Democrats’ radical open borders agenda.

He tweeted on October 21, 2020, “No one in Texas should vote Democrat. It is the party of open borders, decriminalizing illegal border crossing, sanctuary cities for illegals, abolishing ICE, which allows criminal illegal immigrants, along w/human&sex trafficking, to operate freely.”

In his tweet, he shared a link to a Fox News article titled “Border Patrol arrests nearly 300 illegal immigrants in 18 hours.”

This story referred to an incident where U.S. Border Patrol agents in Texas teamed up with local law enforcement to arrest approximately 300 suspected illegal aliens during an 18-hour window last week, as reported by law enforcement.

U.S. Border Patrol agents in Texas, with the help of local law enforcement, arrested nearly 300 suspected illegal immigrants in a span of 18 hours last week, according to law enforcement reports.

Agents raided and closed down stash houses in addition to busting suspected smuggling attempts in four separate incidents that saw a total of 294 individuals apprehended for making an attempt to sneak into the U.S.

According to the law enforcement account of the situation, at least 90 of the people placed in custody came from countries outside of Mexico.

“In all of the incidents, none of the individuals were wearing any personal protective equipment,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recounted. “These callous and dangerous acts are several examples of the lack of regard human smugglers have for those they exploit for profit.”

The Texas GOP scored a big win by choosing Allen West as its leader. After years of disappointment on issues such as Constitutional Carry, the Texas GOP is in need of a major facelift when it comes to its political leadership. Thanks to how competitive Texas has become, the GOP must come on point during election season. This means that it must have its most energetic members on board from the start. And it could do so by having a leader that talks about hot button issues such as guns and putting the clamps on mass migration.
