On Sunday, nearly 2 million people marched the streets of Hong Kong to continue the protest of the controversial extradition bill that would allow people in Hong Kong to be arrested and extradited to mainland China for prosecution. The protesters argue that this bill could be used as a political tool to arrest and extradite political activists that oppose the Chinese government.
The bill is expected to allow the arrests of people who exhibit opposition of the Chinese government, including people who post criticisms of the government on social media and people who do not sing for the national anthem. Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam has already suspended the bill but refuses to withdraw it completely. Despite Lam’s suspension of the bill, the protesters are still visibly terrified and expect the bill to come back.
The Chinese state media has claimed the protests have been fueled by “foreign forces.” The police have allegedly claimed there has been no abuse of protesters.
Exclusive video of a protester in the streets being thrown to the ground and beaten:
This protest comes after the 30 year anniversary of the 1989 protests of Tiananmen Square, which resulted in the massacre of at least 10,000 protesters at the hands of the Chinese government. About 30 years before the Tiananmen Square protests was the Great Leap Forward, which resulted in the deaths of at least 45 million people, including at least 2 million who were tortured to death.
After a century of seeing a hundred million humans die from the result of Communist regimes, Candi CdeBaca won a runoff race last week by promising to implement Communist policies “by any means necessary.”
In my honest and humble opinion, communist politicians like this should be blocked from serving in official government capacity and immediately arrested for treason which in law, is the crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one’s nation or sovereign.
In order for the Constitutional Republic of the United States to be converted to a Communist regime, the government would need to be overthrown. This might sound alarmist but considering the history of Communism and politician advocating its implementation “by any means necessary,” the means she is likely referring to must be overthrowing the government.
Under 18 U.S. Code § 2385, “whoever knowingly, or willingly advocates,” overthrowing the government of the United States “shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years.”
Candi CdeBaca considers herself to be a “Democratic Socialist,” this is an oxymoron. The Russian Social Democratic Party and its derivatives led to and created the Soviet Union. While she may or may not be prosecutable, she certainly should not be allowed to hold a position in public office.
Too many lives have been lost at the hands of Communism for a politician in the land of the free to be attempting to implement it.
The question needs to be asked: What on earth is wrong with the voting gene pool of Virginia? A governor that wants to kill newborns, state’s lieutenant governor sexually assaulting women, touting the ‘blackface’ as young men, and now former state delegate Joe Morrissey has won the primary for Virginia’s 16th Senate district.
The problem with Joe Morrissey? Let’s take a walk down memory lane: In 2015, defense lawyer Morrissey lost his license and spent six months in jail after pleading guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was 56 at the time and having relations with his 17-year-old receptionist.
While in prison, he continued to serve in the state legislature. Now Morrissey is married to the former receptionist, trying to get back his law license, and might soon be back affecting public policy in the state Senate. Perhaps Virginia is for lovers; particularly those who are unethical politicians. During the 2015 trial, Morrissey’s defense included forged documents alleging the teenager’s father owed his daughter $14,000 in support payments.
The question needs to be asked: What on earth is wrong with the voting gene pool of Virginia?
Back in 2015, The Free Beacon reported: “The fraudulent document was discovered by Coleman Pride, the father of the teen at the center of the Morrissey case, who realized that his signature on a document pertaining to support payments owed by him was forged.” Landing a six-month sentence was shocking considering “the former delegate faced charges that could have put him behind bars for 41 years and ended both his political and legal careers.” Apparently, Virginia loves a comeback story.
According to The Washington Post Morrissey was able to unseat his opponent, a veteran senator, Rosalyn R. Dance because he was able to “damage” her “by associating her with deep social and economic problems that plague her hometown.” Additionally, he has strong “support among some African American residents because of his legal work in the community” and “no Republican has stepped forward to run for the seat in the heavily Democratic district, so his election is virtually assured.”
Even Democratic members are disappointed in Virginia voters as Morrissey has a reputation for in-party fighting and being difficult to work with, a reputation Morrissey does not shy away from. He said “One of the things that have scared the Democrats the most is, I’m not one of those sheep who just follows the party line…that has been the trademark since I was in the House of Delegates…I have one of the most liberating feelings in the world. I don’t go there with any debt, any IOUs.”
Certainly, he feels liberated considering he should be on year four of a forty plus year jail sentence. Well, he seems to be in good company in Virginia with a star-studded list of scandals.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw unloaded on a New York Times reporter after the journalist accused the Veteran of not-supporting the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund; posting an image of an injury he sustained in combat that cost him his vision in one eye.
“Anytime a Republican says they are ‘patriots’ ask them if they voted to fund the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. Do you know who’s for it? Ilhan Omar. Do you know who hasn’t sponsored it? Dan Crenshaw” posted New York Times writer Wajahat Ali in a now-deleted tweet.
“@DanCrenshawTX, I hope you do the right thing. If not, why aren’t you?” added the author.
“Hey ‘journalist,’ maybe you should check your facts. I am a co-sponsor. Nice try though,” responded Crenshaw, posting the image of his injury sustained during combat.
Hey “journalist,” maybe you should check your facts. I am a co-sponsor. Nice try though.

“Thanks for letting me know. I’m glad you did and I have no problem correcting and updating the record with facts. Now try it with your comments about Ilhan Omar. You’ll feel better. Sincerely, a fellow patriot,” said Ali.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw also unloaded on firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren last week; saying the far-left legislator was making “false promises” and “buying votes” with her massive new entitlement programs.
“Here’s the thing: When a candidate tells you about all the things that aren’t possible, about how political calculations come first, they’re telling you something very important. They’re telling you that they will not fight for you. Not me. I’m here to fight for our country,” posted Warren on social media.
“Another thing: When candidates promise voters that they’ll solve all their problems, it’s a lie, & it causes resentment. It’s buying votes with false promises. We’re free to pursue our own happiness. This doesn’t include giving our hard-earned money to your big gov programs,” fired-back Crenshaw.

Two things stand out about this story:
First and foremost, my SEAL brother, Congressman Crenshaw is a national hero that knows what service and sacrifice are all about.
Second, the “journalist” that wrote the original claim did it for political reasons in support of the racist congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Nothing new yet very typical of the leftist controlled media and their relationship to the destructive Democrat party.
