Right for Once: David Hogg Describes TikTok As a “National Security Threat”

Published

on

On March 25, 2020, Parkland mass survivor-turned gun control activist David Hogg had one shining moment.

Instead of going on his typical anti-gun screeds, he called out the Chinese Communist Party and its popular app, TikTok.

Hogg Tweeted, “Tik Tok is a national security threat that should only be used to call out the Chinese government (who controls it) for their atrocities and human rights abuses. Seriously y’all memes and jokes are fun but downloading the spyware of an authoritarian regime is not.”

 

TikTok has become popular among American youth for its videos where they make memes, jokes, and dance scenes.

Surprisingly, Hogg is aware of the company’s close connection to the China’s authoritarian government, which BLP also covered previously.

He then made a follow-up Tweet where he said, “I’m not kidding, we need to cancel TikTok.”

Hogg is aware of how TikTok is used to monitor Chinese citizens and crackdown against Hong Kong protestors.

He Tweeted the following: “Another reason I will not be going on there is because they censor activists voices in Hong Kong and around the world that call out the CCP for their atrocities. I refuse to be complicit in the death of democracy in Hong Kong by supporting Tik Tok.”

This is another textbook example of the old adage of a broken clock being right twice a day.

Hopefully, Hogg sticks to bashing China instead of pushing gun-grabbing plots.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
