Tennessee Senator Sends Letter to NBA Asking Why the League Bends Over to the Han Supremacist State of China

Published

On June 30, 2020, Tennessee Senator sent the NBA a letter listing some of the heinous acts of genocide that the Chinese government is committing against ethnic minorities.

In the same letter, Blackburn raised questions about the NBA’s relationship with the Chinese Communist Party.

The Senator complimented the safety measures the NBA implemented by suspending their season, but then proceeded to ask the NBA some incisive questions.

“Your league’s business interests are closely intertwined with Communist China’s estimated $4 billion NBA market,” Blackburn stated in the letter. “While the NBA has worked hard to raise awareness of social issues at home, there is concern that the league has turned a blind eye to human rights abuses committed abroad — even bowing down to pressure last year.”

The Tennessee senator finished off her letter by asking three specific questions that she wanted the NBA to address.

Sports Illustrated reported on Blackburn’s request and obtained a copy of the letter:

As the league reconvenes, further details on its relationship with China are imperative. Please provide a written response to the below inquiries by July 21, 2020.

  1. What are the anticipated financial consequences of China Central Television’s (CCTV) continued ban on the airing of NBA games?

  2. Please continue the scope of the NBA’s relationship with Chinese state-owned enterprise Alibaba.

  3. The NBA reportedly continues to operate a training center Xinjiang, one of the world’s worst humanitarian zones. What steps is the NBA taking to shutter this location?

Blackburn cited the case of Xinjiang, where Uyghur Muslims and “ethnic Kazakhs” are being thrown into concentration camps for “free hospital treatment for the masses with sick thinking.”

Although China has made some changes in the 1980s. it still maintains many vestiges of oriental despotic past and is not on the same wavelength as the West.

American policymakers need to rethink trade relations with China, along with migration polices as well. Astute realpolitik with countries surrounding it (both Koreas, Russia, Japan, and India) can keep in check and prevent it from expanding at will.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
