Republicans won two special elections for the House of Representatives on Tuesday, picking up victories in Wisconsin and California. Republicans Mike Garcia and Tom Tiffany defeated Democrats Christy Smith and Tricia Zunker.
Garcia’s election victory, which takes place in California’s 25th congressional district, was set forth to replace former Democrat Representative Katie Hill following her resignation over a sex scandal. Hill resigned after being exposed for intimate and inappropriate relationships with subordinate congressional staff, yet has claimed that she represents a form of feminist victim for her inappropriate workplace behavior.
The former Navy fighter pilot’s victory over a Democratic State Assemblywoman ensures that the Republican Party has flipped back the first of the congressional seats it lost in the 2018 midterms. As of Wednesday morning, Garcia is up by a percentage count of 55% to 44%, suggesting a handy victory for the Republican to flip the district.
Hillary Clinton had won the popular vote of the northern Los Angeles county district by 6 percentage points in 2016, suggesting a possibility that the Republican Party could be broadening its appeal in the state as Democratic leaders prepare to enact rolling and long-term coronavirus restrictions. Los Angeles County is currently planning on extending its stay-at-home order until July.
Tom Tiffany won big in Wisconsin’s rural and conservative 7th district, cruising to victory over Zunker by a margin of over 16 percentage points.
Both Republican candidates were endorsed by Donald Trump.
Vote @MikeGarcia2020 by May 12th! His opponent @ChristyforCA25 voted to fire teachers, and cut their salaries while bumping up her pay. Now she’s mocking our Great Vets! We need Navy Fighter Pilot Mike Garcia in #CA25! https://t.co/MEnGMvl8it

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.
— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) May 21, 2020
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.
