Get used to these headlines. It's going to be a four year steamroll of the West. As sure as China is taking rocks from the moon as I type this, the West is going to see the full force of a focused, patriotic Communist nation of 1.4B.

There are a few agencies I'd not want to be working for right now...



Hong Kong democracy activists Joshua Wong, Agnes Chow and Ivan Lam have been given jail sentences for their involvement in mass protests last year.

The trio, all in their twenties, had been convicted of unlawful assembly.

The pro-democracy movement has been stifled since Beijing introduced a controversial security law with harsh punishments.
But as their offences took place before the law's enactment, the activists have avoided a potential life sentence.

Wong - aged 24 and Hong Kong's best-known activist internationally - received a sentence of 13 and a half months in jail, while Chow, 23, and Lam, 26, will be imprisoned for 10 and seven months respectively.

The activists were remanded in custody until Wednesday's sentencing, with Wong placed in solitary confinement.

Seems like a positive sign that there are so many so willing to stand up to the totalitarian CCP. When MLK went into that jail in Birmingham, it was not a sign that Civil Rights had been defeated. Quite the contrary.

How long before this happens in America under liberal leadership? AOC already called for rounding up Trump supporters for some retribution or maybe re education. Dems are commies.

You are comparing godless china with a Christian nation like America?

Communists have no sense of guilt or shame

Most Chinese people are not members of the CCP, and a great many are very, very religious whenever they have the freedom to be.

I agree. It's not the Chinese people who are at fault here. It's the Chinese government, a.k.a. the CCP.

I still think we should unleash Japan on the world. Bushido is not dead and never will be.

I don't think we're talking about robots (???), and all people are slaves who are not YET free. The yearning to be free is common to the human condition.

Beijing is one city, and most of its inhabitants aren't in the CCP either. Less than 7% of the population of China is in the CCP.

No it's not. Chinese people are capable of observing the passage of time just like everyone else.
