The United Kingdom Takes the First Step in Letting Communist China Flood its Market with Spy Tech

Published

The BBC reported that the UK has allowed Huawei to continue to be used in its 5G networks but under certain restrictions.

This decision came about regardless of American pressure on the UK to block the Chinese firm.

Huawei will be banned from providing kit to “sensitive parts” of the network, better known as the core.

Additionally, Huawei will only be allowed to compromise 35 percent of the kit in a network’s periphery, which covers radio masts.

It will also be excluded from areas near military bases and nuclear sites.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson had reportedly spoken to President Trump to explain this decision.

“The prime minister underlined the importance of like-minded countries working together to diversify the market and break the dominance of a small number of companies,” a statement from the Prime Minister’s office said.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned about the usage of Huawei’s equipment as a potential espionage risk, declaring that “we won’t be able to share information” with nations that put it into their “critical information systems”.

However, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab claimed that the decision would not affect the UK’s intelligence-sharing relationship with the US government and other close allies.

“Nothing in this review affects this country’s ability to share highly-sensitive intelligence data over highly-secure networks both within the UK and our partners, including the Five Eyes,” the minister informed the House of Commons.

There has been considerable pressure from the US and several Conservative MPs to keep the Chinese tech giant from entering the British market on the grounds of national security.

A Trump administration official declared that the US government “is disappointed” with the decision.

Republican Senator Tom Cotton, a member of the US Senate Intelligence Committee expressed his disappointment on Twitter.

“I fear London has freed itself from Brussels only to cede sovereignty to Beijing,” he tweeted.

Newt Gingrich, a former Speaker of the US House of Representatives during the 1990s, described this decision as a “strategic defeat” for America.

BLP previously covered the U.S. government’s skepticism towards Huawei and its desire to keep it out of the American market.

For national security purposes, it would be best that the U.S. and its allies keep this politically-connected tech giant at a distance.

Until China’s behavior changes on the international stage, Huawei and other companies connected to the Chinese Communist Party should be viewed with considerable skepticism.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
