The Republican National Committee (RNC) scolded Congressman-elect Greg Gianforte in their statement announcing his victory in Thursday’s Montana special election.
Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Mitt Romney’s niece, did not even congratulate Gianforte on his victory, and only mentioned him at the end of her tersely worded statement.
Gianforte, a favorite among Trump supporters, garnered both Democratic and establishment Republican scorn during the campaign, which came to a fever pitch when Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs accused Gianforte of “bodyslamming” him at a campaign event Wednesday night. Gianforte and Jacobs offered different accounts of the incident, and eyewitnesses offered different accounts in turn.
“Tonight Montanans spoke and chose to send a conservative voice to Washinton. Once again, voters responded to President Trump’s call to protect the hard work this administration has done to reform a burdensome tax code, cut onerous regulations, and relieve hardworking taxpayers across the country from the rising costs of Obamacare,” McDaniel stated early Friday morning.
“Congressman-elect Greg Gianforte was right to apologize for his actions in Wednesday’s incident. Tonight’s apology was a good first step toward redemption and I hope Gianforte continues to work toward righting his wrong,” McDaniel said.
Not exactly celebratory.
Republican establishment figures including Bill Kristol and Ben Shapiro joined in the mainstream media’s condemnation of Gianforte. House Speaker Paul Ryan called on Gianforte to apologize prior to the election.
But despite the controversy, Gianforte’s Deplorable base came out in droves, handing him an easy victory with the help of his friend Don Trump Jr.
Josh Hawley Introduces Resolution Against China’s New National Security Law to Punish Hong Kong
Hawley is focusing intently on the red menace.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) introduced a resolution on Thursday to oppose China’s new national security law meant to punish Hong Kong and quash their ongoing rebellion against the totalitarian communist state.

Hawley has long been an advocate of Hong Kong freedom protesters throughout their struggle against Chinese tyranny, which has been sidelined in large part due to the ever-so-convenient Wuhan virus outbreak. Hawley visited Hong Kong last year to talk to the people on the ground and gave a rousing floor speech highlighting their historic struggle.
He said during his speech: “I want to share something that the reverend Chu Yiu-ming said about liberty about democracy. He says it so beautifully. These are his words: “We strive for democracy because democracy strives for freedom and equality and universal love. Political freedom is more than loyalty to a state. Political freedom professes human dignity. Every single person living in a community possesses unique potentials and unique powers capable of making a unique contribution to society.”’
“That’s extraordinary and he’s exactly right, and Hongkonger’s know it, and that’s what they’re standing for, and that’s what they’re fighting for,” Hawley added. “And, Mr. President, the people of Hong Kong deserve our support, and they are depending on our support.”
China announced yesterday that they were passing a edict meant to crush dissent in Hong Kong, with no input allowed from the city itself. China has paid lip service regarding Hong Kong’s autonomy for decades, but they are now removing the facade completely.
“Beijing has opted for the most risky route,” said Ho-Fung Hung, who works as a professor of international relations for Johns Hopkins University. “It will show the world that ‘one country, two systems’ is, if not already over, almost over.”
“It will be very difficult for anyone, especially the United States, to say Hong Kong is still autonomous and viable,” Hung added.
China is denying that they are taking control over Hong Kong and putting out communist propaganda that their Draconian power-grab will actually improve relations.
“We will ensure the long-term stability of ‘one country, two systems,’ ” said Wang Yang, leader of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, which convenes every year to advise the Chinese government.
“We will continue to support the improvement of the implementation of the systems and mechanisms of the constitution and Basic Law,” he added.
It is unlikely that anyone is willing to believe the Chinese lip service at this point. Hawley is also calling on the globalist United Nations to pass a resolution condemning China’s behavior as well.
