"Well, what are you doing about the slave labor that makes your shoes? That slave labor that makes you rich. To the owner of Nike, feel night. I have a message for you. How about I book a plane tickets for us? That's flight to China together. We can try to visit these slave labor camps, and we can see it which are on ice. LeBron James, and Michael Jordan, you guys are welcome to come to. Nike must be a participant in this. Stop with hypocrisy. Stop the modern day slavery now. But I think the jobs are better served for Americans. And I think that we should have the ability to build our own businesses, just like China has the right to do for themselves. Without the risk of these things being undercut by policies that we don't understand, which is effectively what you do when you outsource your supply chain to countries where you're not a 100% aligned with them. Yeah. And they're dictatorships. So again, I'm not even sure that China is a dictatorship the way that you want to call it that. Again, I think one country that's in the name. Look, you have to understand Jason, there are a set of checks and balances here on China that at the end of the day, I don't think that I have the moral absolutism to judge China. That is the co owner of the warriors. He owns 10% chamat chamath, palaio petia, and he's issued a statement after this. Not an apology, but a statement. And he said that he came across as lacking empathy, I'll say. Quote, as a refugee, my family fled a country with its own set of human rights issues. So this is something that is very much a part of my lived experience. To be clear, my belief is that human rights matter whether in China, the United States or elsewhere, full stop. So you're comparing human rights problems in our country to China. Back to mister freedom. My message to the Chinese government is free Tibet. Tibet belongs to Tibetans. I'm here at my voice and speak out about what is happening in Tibet. Under the Chinese government's border rule, Tibetan people's basic rights and freedoms are nonexistent. They are not allowed to study and learn their language and culture freely. Only the Tibetan people should decide the future of Tibet. 100%. If you belong to the Tibetan people. And I hope and believe Tibet will achieve independence. Brutal dictator of China. She, Jinping. I have a message for you and your henchmen. I will say, again, again, and again, law and clear. I hope you hear me. Free Tibet, free Tibet, free Tibet. Well, I guess it's one thing when a white cop is shooting a black person in America. It's a whole another thing when Chinese government is oppressing millions of Uyghurs because, well, some human rights, we can hear about some human rights. We don't much care about, right? When someone says Hong Kong to me, the very first thing I think of is the people. The brave Hong Congress standing up against China's dictatorship. Hong Kong used to be one of the three cities in the world. But in recent years, that has all changed. In active vibration, the national security law is sent in generations of Hong Congress to jail simply for exercising their basic rights to freedom of assembly, freedom of speech and freedom of expression. The people have done nothing wrong. Nothing. All they want it was to be hurt to be respected, to express their views freely. All they want is freedom. Ever since the national security law was imposed, we have seen increased crackdowns, increased censorship, increased propaganda.

It is crystal clear that the Chinese government's end goal is to bring Hong Kong under its total control. We must not let that happen. And we must act. We must hold the Chinese government accountable. So everyone watching, I hope you will join me. We must do everything we can to help free Hong Kong. We must support Hong Kong and their struggle for freedom. And to all October's watch. Please know that I stand at you. You are not Chinese. You are not British. You are Hong kongers.

Or at least the people who would be running in his stead would have the same philosophy. All right. It is not a surprise to me. That there would be the potential attack on any part of the United States from Russia and China. Russia and China see the United States as weak.

I disagree because those people have been killed by the Communists. Never mind the abuse of the weaker Muslims. Never mind the destruction of the Hong Congress. But without the Communist Party, there will be no new China. And he got outrageous applause. But his line is the Chinese people will absolutely not allow any foreign force to bully a press or enslave us and anyone who attempts to do so will face broken heads and bloodshed in front of the great Iron Wall. Of the 1.4 billion Chinese people. Someone's a tough guy. And all of this is predicated on the idea of the belief If not the truism.

"Oh I think that this was that the whole Cova thing has a lot of purposes but the number one purpose in the way it was handled the timing is that there was a ten trillion dollar debt crisis coming. That was a result of the can't kick from two, thousand eight. It was an eleven year expansion and the interest rate was at two percent normally normally. Expansion is not eleven years and when it comes to an end and you have a retraction recession, the interest rate is seven percent and they lowered by five percent at two percent. There is no place for it to go. So they had to do something I thought they were going to kick the cancel after the election. So trump would have four years to crash the economy take the blame ruin Republicans forever, Yada Yada. Could make it. So. The whole thing is about this usage debt crisis, and if you look at all these stimulus packages, that's something like one, hundred, billion dollars going to public healthcare. Is a health crisis you know and it's all going to buy debt. So. I don't say has been. Yeah. It would have been as big as they could make it. They needed to said. Yeah. So do you think? Like what's your take on what Corona viruses? You think it's real easy has overblown. You think it's fake I have said from the beginning. My understanding. Why people in the realize it's called germ theory. My understanding. This is what I said. The first time somebody asked me that question in February. So people were still like people were alternating between, it's real or it's a bioweapon. They said, I'm not sure they could actually get A. To do what they're saying this is going to do. So I was never really scared unless they were GonNa you know lace it with bacteria or put everybody on ventilators like you know whatever it is that they're gonNa do to actually hurt people that is something to be afraid of, but I don't think it's bioweapon I. The CDC of was in the meeting with the CDC of us when they plotted this thing in. Easy. So I understand that we're going to have a Cold War with China but that doesn't mean that they're not in on it. It says, we want it. Why wouldn't they want it? They have the same problem crisis to. Do you know in the tens of trillions of dollars in Asia do you view us in some like what sort of conflict? With China, a Cold War, like you said, financial war like what do you think are? With China now. Yeah. I think it's A. I. Think it's a show and I'll tell you why I think. It's real. It's real but it's theatrical. It's like theater where these real bullets. It's one one take. So, and this is why Because when I saw the, if you want to go to the Rockfeller James Corbett has a great. Expose on Rockefeller and the Chinese and Nixon and all that stuff and how we create a China wore short we could have created Thailand. But we didn't we created China like, Thailand, if I understand correctly did not have the same access to our markets that China because China with their cheap labor. Yes. They crushed our stuff but I think I believe this is true and have to triple check. But that we restrain some of those other some Southeast Asian countries from competing. With their cheap labor so we created China. and. So I've always kind of felt like there's probably. I'll give you an Iranian example, but there's probably people who are for reels in China. Really WanNA. They probably have to deal with that problem people were in league with the world powers and people aren't at different levels society. But when I saw Hong Kong coming down. And found out through some Ron Paul articles, Rand Paul, and stuff like that. You have to the National Endowment for Democracy, which is a front of the CIA whatever was behind a lot of that stuff and. SOCIL- yeah. Yes. So. What extent are they involved? That's one thing that I hadn't heard about Hong Kong like National Dama for. How to what extent is it in their leadership or? Well when you see people in. Disguises. Handing out, I think. It's the same thing that happened in Portland which my Oho. sprinkly predicted that that Hong Congress was a teaching the world had protest. I believe they had the same thing where someone was handing out frozen water bottles. To throw. So so they have that happened in Libya tapping and Portland not I don't know if it was frozen water. Libya seems impractical by those pallets of bricks as well that the been in I'm not sure that was verified. So that could have been something that was there to as a plan to get people to be debunked I don't know but the the ice water was for sure there goes through window. And so so the Hong Kong thing was at high level because we know the National Endowment of actually was involved and it was at a low level because you had these agents provocateur on the grounds. Same thing happened co Intel pro like we've got the people on the ground. We've got the people at the top, but here's the thing about Hong Kong I said, okay we are really undermining China with this stuff that we're doing in Hong Kong that's one possibility or we're helping China absorbed Hong Kong before twenty, forty seven that's another possibility, and then we produced and pass. Legislation that said as long as Hong Kong is having civil unrest, we will no longer treat them favorably. So it's done. So, then Hong Kong only hope is the thing that Hong Kong loves about being Hong. Kong. And the thing that has going. So twenty forty seven is that it has a different relationship with rest Laura. Woods we and others have used their protests to to neutralize those advantages and at the same time China is saying if this unrest continues, we're going to have to simply absorb Hong Kong. We simply if you're not going to accept the two systems, one country, you're breaking the deal. And I think that's where it's headed. So that confirms my suspicion that where it really counts we are in league we not mean to me but the people who run Pelosi and trump that level those guys also run. Enough of China to actually get it done and if you watch events to a one, they say, if you want your officials to do stuff, you get there rich people to give them a call us soft power I mean I'm practically quoting. And so like with Iran the Sulejmani who killed and Iran did not actually retaliate and then admitted to some botched missile thing which seemed like a sigh from the beginning that we were in on and they were in on. Concluded or speculated that so mani was a real dude. He was a real Iranian maybe psychopath but he was a real dude and Rouhani who was educated in Scotland and runs Iran was like we gotta get rid of the real dudes because how am I gonNa make back back alley deals with the Great Satan. Everybody needs a great Satan. We got them, they add us. Oh yeah that's that's. I mean. That's the thing that's. Cool about your takes you. You're not really it'd be a mistake to say that I I know for sure what happened like you've never met Sola Mani You? Never. Do is try to figure out the things that we know and how it might actually make sense in my world view, which in all the Times I've looked at it honestly revised it and tweaked it has never really blown up my worldview seems to be a valid. Structure on which to evaluate how the world works until something else comes along to make it something make more sense when I plug that stuff in I can take the information that's in the news and propaganda and try to discern facts than evidence from total bull, and then take those facts and say, well, what, what could the purpose be here and I remember with Ferguson? I couldn't figure out what the purpose wasn't I said I think they're going to try to pull back on policing because the crime rates are just way too love. Prior rates have been plummeting since the nineties and they just need to scare people so that that government needs fear and that's exactly what happened look at what's happening. It's all about pulling back on the police so that you can get a federal police force that. You can get all subba question about that actually heard you mentioned that on your show. So so okay, kind of the big picture question. I'm kind of to ask him about a little bit is like urine an cap I would like to be an an cap. One of the reasons I'm not as because I don't see it happening without waking up millions and millions like hitting critical mass, very hard to go to a stateless society. Gun Laws are not the way me your type like it.

I'm Carol Hills, and this is the world. A CO production of W.. G. B. H. BOSTON NPR ex. US China relations are in a downward spiral. According to news reports, the trump administration is now talking about imposing a travel ban on members of the Chinese Communist Party. Meanwhile, Beijing is accusing Washington of meddling in its internal affairs. The White House has been especially pointed in its criticism. China's harsh new Security Law for Hong Kong another impact of that law. Some people in Hong Kong are now. Thinking about getting out Australia, which is a nine hour flight away wants to welcome them, but there's a catch as the world's Patrick win. Reports Chinese officials say Australia is making a huge mistake pushing their relationship to a breaking point. What are they so mad about well? Here's Australian prime. Minister, Scott Morrison and so strides dies teich in steps to suspend extradition agreement. We formally notified Hong Kong and advised the Chinese authorities no more extradition treaty, so if someone is fleeing Chinese authorities in Hong Kong perhaps protester looking. Looking to avoid jail time, they can go to Australia. It's kind of a safe haven now, but fleeing Hong Kong needing to run somewhere for safety did most people think it would come to this? No beyond this. No, this is so unreal. The whole thing is so unreal that Jennifer. She was born in Hong Kong now. She's an Australian citizen with an activist slash support group called new. South Wales Congress. She asked that I only use her first name because she's scared of being targeted by the Chinese government. Jennifer, says Hong Kong as she knew it. Growing up is done the freedom of Hong. Kong, not gone. As it inches subtly disappear overnight. She and other. Hongkongers Australia are hearing from protesters who've been outspoken about the Chinese Communist Party now these protesters are asking. Should I get out of here? Here's Dennis. From a group called Australia Hong Kong link the most important people that we hope. Foreign Countries could save are really those who were on the protests Fox line, and some of them are already started or have been to court ready Dennis also asked to just go by his first name. He says Beijing's new law cast a wide net against dissenters. The low mention will not be charged because of what you did in the past, but probably what you did in the past would catch the eye of the companies, which is also putting your risk so Australia. It's looking like atempting place to flee for certain Hong Kong dissidents. Dissidents, they won't get sent back to China and people like Dennis and Jennifer are there to help set them up with a new life, but listen to how Australia's prime minister is talking to Hongkongers wishing to leave. He wants people who are trying to start a new life somewhere else to take the skills that businesses and things that have been running under the previous set of rules and arrangements in Hong Kong and seek that opportunity elsewhere yet. He almost sounds like he's at a job. Fair notice. He doesn't use the word refugees, but most people seeking a freer life in Australia aren't fleeing a wealthy city like Hong Kong. Dennis once again. Australia would like to help as well as to games of skilled migrants or S- probably some capital from home as well. What Australia is actually saying policy wise is come on over. If you're a student or business owner, someone with potential will give you a nice visa and a path to a good life here. It looks like a talent grab and Australia isn't the only country doing this in the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Boris Johnson Mr Brexit not exactly a big advocate for more immigration, saying we may take nearly three million Hong Kongers Jennifer the activist. Activist, says look call them. Refugees call them whatever as migrants go, Hongkongers do bring a lot to the table until I hope he will come. He alluded I. Make Friends we will have. They will bring more jobs and opportunity and I to locals. Australia's Immigration Minister Alain Touch, he's trying to attract disaffected Hongkongers because I do WanNa, free a country that want to be in a democratic country, and we want to make it attractive for that super talent to consider restrictor, and that's what these measures, but if you're not super talent, get in the refugee queue with everyone else. In reality, these changes may work for a small number of dissidents, but it's not a lifeline to most hongkongers Beijing is still mad about it and threatening pay-back, but Australia is gambling that it's worth it. Dennis hopes Australia will eventually make it easier for more disaffected Hong Congress to come over, but for now he says this is a good start when Australia is trying to offer a helping hand to Hong Kong. They would like to scream at shoes. Those who can really make contribution to the country, and is understandable for the world I'm Patrick, win. Young Chung says she's troubled. By the language, politicians and governments are using to promote resettlement policies for Hong Kong residents. Chung is a particle physicist at Cornell University. She was born in Mainland, China and took advantage of a visa program herself just over a decade ago to come to the US to study, Chung says that move involved trading one set of freedoms for another young young Chung. Why do you find visa offers for Hong? Kong residents from places like Australia and the UK so problematic. I believe very strongly migration as a human rights, however, the host countries whether it's UK or Australia, and to some extent members of the US government as well they're only seeing the most privileged, the most well educated on Congress since the ones who have the most resources, and they are seeing this policy as a way to enrich their own countries, and I found that to be a dehumanizing perspective, the poor that this enfranchised people who do not have the resources and most importantly the people who have no willingness to leave their homeland. They're seeing. Ask some kind of political chess piece as some kind of resource that can be extracted. So your fears that these visa programs end up leaving behind everyone, but a privileged few in general people who have faced manager of a border including myself. We have to turn a part of ourselves into currency, whether it is our savings, our degrees, our scales, our labor, and at the very least it's also our stories are despair and our pain that are being used to purchase this ticket of crossing, and that is a traumatizing experience, and I do hope that people who have been living in a place of their birth who had just exist with nothing. Nothing to prove recognize that and I think what the crowd virus pandemic has shown us is that nations and humans are all porous entities, so it's not possible to build any individual any country into this kind of bubble and exist alone an island. It's interesting. One recent survey of Hong, Kong citizens found that if Hong Kong had to relocate, most would wanna go to Taiwan I. Mean Britain and the US ranked even below mainland China as a favourite destination. Does that surprise you? That didn't surprise me. People who choose to leave their homelands favor geographical cultural. Proximity to their place of birth the fact that China higher than Britain and the US as a place of relocation is that there are also indeed people who are more conservative and pro establishment in Hong, Kong. You relied on a US student visa to open the door to what you hoped would be of greater freedom in the US at the time..

"Ar w time is 6 45 It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noelle King and I'm Steve Inskeep. We have an early idea how China will impose a national security law on Hong Kong because police there have already made their first arrests. Thousands of Hong Kong residents were pro testing on Wednesday to commemorate the handover to Chinese rule. It was the anniversary of the date when Hong Kong was handed over to China people protest against this new law, which lets Beijing prosecute crimes it deems related to national security. NPR's Emily Fang is covering the story from Beijing. Hi there, Emily. Good morning, Steve. What were people arrested for? It's not entirely clear. Police told us only that six men and four women were arrested under this new law for crimes that had just come into existence. The night before. Police told us that one of thes people arrested was a 15 year old girl. Another person was arrested because he was shown waving a pro independence flags of advocating for what Beijing consider secessionist behavior and they were marching as largely peaceful demonstrators to commemorate as you said, the handover of Hong Kong to Chinese rule, and they came out despite these very heavy legal penalties that the national Security Law prescribes upto life in prison. If Beijing wanted these 10 people they've arrested could be tried and mainland China by a Chinese court, according to Chinese laws that we don't know how they'll prosecute these 10 people, yet is this one good way to summarize part of this law? Hong Kong, unlike the rest of China has had free speech or at least freer speech than the rest of China. They still have it except whenever Beijing thinks that that speech is threatening is that a fair summary? And when it touches upon national security Okay, And they are people looking for ways to get around this new law. They are, and the main one seems to be leaving Hong Kong completely. Many, many people I talked to are considering immigration. They're looking at Taiwan, which is close by shares a similar culture and has said that it will take more Hong Kong er's as long term residents. Australia said today that it's looking into offering special visas for Hong Kong ER's and American legislation passed last year might make it easier for Hong Congress to apply for temporary visas in the US Most notably the United Kingdom, which used to govern Hong Kong is offering a path towards citizenship for most Hong Kongers who were born before July 1st 1997. That's when Hong Kong I went back to Chinese rule. Up to three million Hong Kongers could qualify for this. And in general, you're seeing more home Congress trying to choose between freedom of expression and just simple freedom. They're deleting their public social media accounts on Twitter, their self censoring And I've noticed today that many people are adding me on encrypted chat accounts, so they're moving onto encrypted platforms instead. You know, it's amazing to hear talk of immigration. A lot of people in Hong Kong are in Hong Kong today because their parents or grandparents fled communist China to set up there. Now you're telling me people I have to flee on again. How is China, responding? Their defiant They are very clear that they will push towards total control over Hong Kong, regardless of what the international community thinks. I went to a government presser yesterday in which they said we will not be cowed by Western countries. And China has already threatened retaliation if the UK goes through with offering Hong Kongers a citizenship path. They argue. This is an interference with our internal affairs because Hong Kong is a part of China. Emily, Thanks for the update. Sixties..

"News. I'm Noelle King and I'm Steve Inskeep 23 years ago today, July 1st 1997 Control of Hong Kong passed from Britain to China. This anniversary is the day that mainland China chose for a national security law to take effect. It criminalizes most descent. And on this day, authorities have arrested dozens of people in Hong Kong even as people on the streets chose the anniversary. As a day of protest. How was Hong Kong changed since 1997. NPR's Emily Fang has been speaking with Hong Kongers who were born that year. Alan's grand parents fled mainly in China during a political campaign in the late 19 fifties that resulted in mass famine. Now, more than seven decades leader Ellen is thinking of leaving Hong Kong. I think in the future, the Chinese government would take over this place completely like all of the Hong Kongers in this piece, Ellen did not want to give her full name for the same reason that she's considering immigration. She's concerned Beijing could punish her under its national security law passed just this week that criminalizes many types of dissent. And like other young residents, born in 1997 Ellen has only ever known Hong Kong as a Chinese territory. If she identifies not as Chinese and definitely not as British, but purely as a Hong Kong whenever she has to fill out forms when Everett of their forms like when I discovered us no. What a field day in Hong Kong and I might chose others is that all forcing myself to choose Chinese and for those born in 1997 the months you were born, has now become a line in the sand. United Kingdom offered a British national overseas passport or, you know to Hong Kong subjects right up to June 30th 1997. For those born right before the handover. They now have a path to British citizenship. Some Hong Kongers just missed the deadline by Kiki. He was born days after hand over. I just feel like trapped in Hong Kong because I can't do anything about Hong Kong situation but is okay just accepted my fate. Many born in 1997 say they're frustrated. They had no say in defining the conditions under which Beijing would rule Hong Kong. Jenny is a university student. She has a piano and says she is emigrating. I can't stay here and seeing home coins degenerate and I have to affect for myself. Like Did I speak anything wrong or deny tissue my shoulder in a world rage so that they will get punished? Jenny says she can to see a future for herself in Hong Kong if she has to live in fear of being punished for saying something wrong. Marco was born in October of 1997. So no BNL, he says, being born after handover has always felt like being born with a ticking time bomb. Starting from 1997 China agreed to give Hong Kong limited autonomy for five decades. Fish like accounting down like 50 years. So exactly 50 years old by then. Instead, he fears many of Hong Kong's freedoms will be gone before he celebrates his 24th birthday later this year. His biggest life decisions have always been guided by this countdown. It's always like a time before shooting thing. Do you have to plan it earlier? Or is it too late to way to like Around 5 to 10 years near that eyes that ever going to lay. Unlike many Hong Kongers, Marco is not considering moving to Taiwan. Taiwan has offered to take in some Hong Kong It also is an electoral democracy and has vowed to defend its liberal order against Beijing for now, for now is good. But who knows? 10 or 15 years Ray that was going on it. So Marco is looking farther afield to Canada or the U. S. One amid a potential exodus of Hong Congress looking for a new home. Emily Fang. NPR NEWS This is NPR news. This is morning edition on W N. Y. C coming up, President Trump has created yet another controversy over his handling of race. Having the president tweet out a video that has a supporter yelling white power. It is a step beyond the kind of dog whistles and racist and exclusionary language we've heard before. More on that coming up next. Our stay with us..

"Pensions, pensions, But you see, black lives matter is here. So your pensions are now totally up for grabs. Sorry. Sorry about that. Can, uh Can't have that. Can't have you? Ah. Can't have you is worry, you know? Yeah. Your pension. It's sorry. We've got to go this way. That's what's going on. Of course, that's what's going on. People are retiring to make sure they can get theirs. I also assume that New York cops are retiring so they can move the hell out of New York. That's just one man's pieces. That that's my my basic. Take. And as you take away Police protection's or respect for police. Who becomes a cop. Who becomes a cop. How does this work? So what do you do when that happens? Well, maybe start taking things into your own hands. Let's take the ST Louis where the mayor there started reading some names. Of some black lives matter. Protestors on their addresses. Well, people are upset because they thought it was docking. Docking is when you do that when you put out someone's information as a way of having them attacked. So they went to the mayor's house. The mayor lives in this gated area. I didn't know that And so protesters. Trying to intimidate the mayor. Demanding the resignation of marching towards the house. Well, people came out of their homes and somebody's homes a really, really, really nice Like this one couple that everyone is pointing at. They've got glass from a From a Italian cathedral in their home. And they came out with guns. He's carrying an A R. She's carrying what's like a semi automatic. There was a moment that she had a named at protesters, except that's not the story. Daily Mirror says chilling moment white couple pulls guns on peaceful black lives matter Protestors No, they weren't peaceful. Let's be clear they were looking to intimidate, and he one of the black lives matter protestors and they're not protesters was holding a firearm as well. May I ask the black lives matter folk, not the people who actually want to do something, but these people who want to terrorize and that's exactly what's happening. I don't know why this is such a difficult subject for some We still haven't solved the problems. We still haven't changed the laws. I don't know what's going on with the No knock warrants on the federal side, Rand. Paul put it out there. You start walking through neighborhoods. You start screaming and yelling at people. You don't think they're gonna protect themselves. What do you think is happening? What do you think is gonna happen? Do you think Americans are made up of the Bill Deblasio Sze of the world. Of these coward mayors. Of the Jacob phrase of the world. There's a fry that guy from Minneapolis. You think that's who it is? Do you think every single mayor is like Libby shots up there in Oakland? Know the American people aren't going to just sit by while you terrorize them? They're going to protect themselves and the ones they love. They protect their property and they worried about a damn thing. My gun's buy Ammo. Why? Because you have the Second Amendment. When the society breaks down, and you have to protect yourself because politicos won't protect cops and everybody hates cops, and nobody wants to be a cop. What's your plan? Do you think that's a radical statement? It seems pretty self evident. Now. The picture. Of this couple is just Is perfect because she's wearing the black capri pants. And and and the top with black and white stripes, and he's wearing chinos and a pink polo shirt. Like it could not be more perfect. T the idea of how could you? How could you make these people any whiter? Right. So he's a photo. It just looks absolutely positively amazing. With this idea. ST Louis couple points guns at marching protesters. These aren't good people. ST Louis, couple points, guns, a peaceful crowd of protesters. They weren't a peaceful crowd. Now. Did they break anything? Not that I know of. When they're going to the mayor's home. Well. You think that's to be peaceful, or do you think that's to intimidate If you think I shouldn't notice if you think we shouldn't be able to engage the conversation. Well, then I ask you exactly how peaceful was it? What It's an important lesson. That this couple aren't they don't be pointing guns at people. Maybe, but no one should be surprised by what's going on here. Of course, people going protect themselves in their homes. You start moving into where people live. And they're going to protect themselves. Now some people they will give in some people they're going to fight. And they're absolutely within their rights to protect themselves if they feel threatened. I let it I'll let a judge figure that one out. The N B A is going to push the social justice message. Now. When they're deciding on the social justice message is that you can put on the back of your shirt. Black lives matter of. Probably. Okay after all, Probably not hands up. Don't shoot. Maybe what about free Hong Kong? Member. The MBA players were all silent about what's going on in Hong Kong. Oh, no, You can't be on the side of those people who are getting destroyed by their governments. Oh, my gosh, No. You have to be quiet and just take your money. Right? Steve current LeBron James. They know everything. They know how to be super well, OK, just don't know how to support the Hong Congress..

"hong congress" Discussed on PRI's The World
"Jus your e face show today on the world. I'm Marco werman. We're one week into summer and France has already shattered the record for the highest temperature ever recorded there in some cities in the south of France, they've reached as high as one fourteen degrees Fahrenheit, one fourteen degrees, and what's worse than that most departments don't actually have air conditioning. We'll hear how the French are beating the heat also today at the g twenty summit in Japan. Hong Kong's pro democracy. Activists had this request for President Trump and other world leaders, they stand with us as we fight to save got freedom and atonomy under Chinese rule. Beijing says that's an internal Chinese matter mind your own business. Those stories are more today here on the world. If nothing else the democratic debates this week showed us, what democracy can look like twenty candidates all for president all expressing their opinions. We start today in a place where the thirst for democracy, took some two million people to the streets this month. Hong Kong, the semi-autonomous island answers to mainland China, but it's people rose up to protest an extradition Bill this month. The law would give a is the ability to schoo- people up in Hong Kong take them to mainland China and put them on trial. Activists are calling on Hong congress, it come out in March on Monday, and they're calling on world leaders of the g twenty summit to please pay attention. They stand with us as we fight to save got freedom and Tony and the Chinese rule. That's twenty three year old activist Joshua Wong. He's one of the leaders of the pro democracy movement and on Kong, he's focused now on this coming Monday, July. First, that's the anniversary of China taking back control of Hong Kong from Britain back in nineteen ninety seven with. Residents angry about that extradition. Bill Wong says a usual July first demonstrations, will have more urgency laws year we have around on the hundred thousand people get on straight, but I believe on, I line, we'll have more than half than people joined the strike. We urge the government, not only suspend Bill but foodie withdrawed ego law. Let's say that extradition law was not a proposal that it was in fact law. What would how would that affect you? If traditional being passed it might extra end the individual ordinary citizen from Hong Kong to mainland China, the place, fair trial. That's why people get out on the street with the anger and power and urge government respect on judicial independence and fat trial, Joshua. You've had several episodes in Hong Kong's jails. And it's really all the function of this odd relationship between Hong Kong and Beijing you were in jail for a month recently. And then went right back to the streets, without even a change of clothes. How come you're getting arrested so much? I am the one who have lit umbrella, movement five years ago, the umbrella political crackdown, especially the crackdown on human rights and political prosecution. So now not only myself still twenty politico free Innis in Joe. I'm not sure what kind of massive prosecution might happen suit, but we will never step that word again. It all comes back to this, very strange relationship that isn't really quite night or day between Hong Kong and Beijing, is it frustrating for you? People might fail tongue hot or depressed. But we Fus screwed. grade at because facing the largest of retire region in the world. We still continue our scrape with our passion. So you're in Hong Kong right now, Joshua. But I know the movement has several hundred representatives and Asaka at the g twenty I know you're calling on g twenty leaders to voice concerns over what you say are Hong Kong's, waning freedoms. But are they really going to listen, even with several hundred protesters right under their noses pan?.
"hong congress" Discussed on News 96.5 WDBO
"Data show on news ninety six point five. Yes, you do. Silence. Oh my goodness, with everything going on in the world. And especially with the no now we don't have tariffs that are I it was a good. I think it was a good way to leverage that to leverage the threat of that against Mexico, so we can get some sort of cooperation from them with regards to the border, and the flood of people who it seems almost it almost seems as though Mexico's assisting them with. It's an action and I don't think that that's an any way wrong to say. But now the president is looking to get and he says that he has the promise of it more prevention from them on this. They were discussing something getting their national guard, which apparently still being organized, but it's a step to to go to the border and prevent this stop it from happening at the rate that it's happening. For more on this and what other stuff Steven Yates is a foreign policy expert. He's been travelling extensively where in the world is not Carmen sandiego but Steven Yates with the international advisory. He served in the Bush administration, advising former VP Dick Cheney, and he, I believe, is back in DC, and he joins us by phone. Stephen, always a pleasure. How are you? Our areas. We stephen. Charge here from DC. Yeah. Excellent. Well, we're glad you've been everywhere. We were talking about how it's like we're in the world is Carmen sandiego. But with Stephen, so I got to get your reaction to the administration leveraging the trade for stricter, immigration enforcement, and Mexico, apparently was celebrating the deal. They had a rally in Tijuana, Mexico said, yes, we, we have a signed agreement they were saying that we're going to send they're not really entirely organiz, yet, national guard of the southern border. I'm totally fine with that is this is this victory. Because the way that Chuck Schumer, he's been mocking some of the media, they're trying to really downplay it as being a nothingburger. What's the real story? As with everything it seems that life. We've been given this dose of reality check supposedly for weeks and weeks about how things will never ever work, and it's terrible in the world's gonna fall apart because the president is trying a different approach. And then once again, we have an outcome that no other president has been able to achieve over a much longer period of time. And I can't say that there's any particular magic ingredient about the Trump approach to this, except he's willing to say publicly in bluntly, what needs to be done, and from time to time willing to put a little stick behind it to go our negotiating partners long. And frankly, I think anyone has looked at what's happening inside of Mexico with all of this. You gotta believe at some level, the Mexican people aren't buying this political, correct garbage anymore. Because look this is this is trashing our own country. And they've got to be demanding a little better service from their own government as well, but really, well, no expert inside the beltway would have predicted this kind of outcome or advise this. Kind of approach, if this deal holds it's actually store at rate through in US, Mexico relations with regard to immigration, I think, so too, and Chuck Schumer, he had tweeted, right when it was, this was actually the other disa- Saturday. Right. Is it was announced he says, just as I predicted? I mean he literally tweeted this President Donald Trump backed off on his threat of tariffs against mexic- Mexico. He says Mexico is going to take action to greatly reduce or eliminate illegal immigration. He wasn't taking it seriously. But I don't know if I see anything to suggest that they are not being genuine in their promise. I mean, they, they have a signed agreement now which is much more than our previous administration was able to pretty much with any other foreign entity in terms of reducing threats to the United States. But do you do you take them genuinely? Do you take them at their Mexico's leadership at their word that they are going to do something to assist in, preventing this deluge from hitting our border? Well, obviously, the challenge, I think, is worthy of adult attention and engagement. Unfortunately, it's very, very easy for Democrats to just sit back and fire potshots sidelines is a good to be a democrat. You couldn't be extraordinarily flexible about the truth and evidence. You just say what you want to be given week. And that's what the Senate leader has been doing on this, in almost every other foreign policy topic. This is something that I huge number of voters, take very, very seriously, we wouldn't have a President Donald Trump. Is that wasn't the case? And so frankly, I'm all in favor of the democrat, dismissing minimizing this, if it will, they'll just please keep doing it. Very publicly throughout the rest of this election cycle. Maybe we can get Senate back in Republican control. Mexico said that in this was the way to put this to listeners. So doesn't sound too in the weeds. They were winning to adopt. What what's called the safe third country protocol? So if you're so, for instance, if people for those out there, because I know Stephen knows this for, for people coming in from Guatemala, or anywhere else if they if they have to pass through Mexico before they get to the United States seeking asylum. They would have to first apply in the first safe country in which they crossed into an apparently, Mexico was insisting the president Andrea, man. Well over door was saying that he was never going to agree to it. But apparently, now, they're like, okay, we will totally discuss the safe third country agreement with the United States because that was the one big thing, apparently that had been missing previously from the agreement talk a little about this in terms of how this has been cited it was always always used as a talking point by the CNN types MSNBC types by a lot of democrat elected officials saying we have to accept these people if they're seeking. Asylum, but they go through a number of safe countries before they even get to the United States. It doesn't seem to undermine that whole argument. Well, leave it to these liberals progressives to denigrate the Mexican people and their and their government to try to put them in the position of saying, we are actual sovereigns. We don't have waters, and we're not safe. And so these people who are fleeing suppose terrible oppression. Some of them are leaving horrible circumstances. Does the Mexican people are not loving and self respectful enough to be able to take care of your own borders, their own country and maybe take some of these people, but it's extraordinarily important to move some of this pressure away from the border itself. We have challenges of the border, that are real that need priority attention. The basically have welfare mobs that are organized by globalist leftist trying to overwhelm the services. If essentially denies the services to the people who really need them. And so the Mexicans bay by way of the pressure of tariffs, or by way of whatever the magic sauce was that got them to the point to take seriously. This is actually very, very important. It's good for them to, to basically. Reclaim their own sovereignty, and some degree of self respect on this issue in my view. But it pushes the drug lords in those that merchant human trafficking further away from the border and it, just like in any military campaign, but more a distance you are trying to deal with the enemy the better position, we will be in the target accurately. And maybe even Bill with some of these problems and help the people that are revolt. Yeah. No, absolutely. You mentioned, the, the drug lords end the cartels. There's been a push from the administration to, to redefine them as, as centrally terror groups. Because we have military members national guard there at the southern border. But I know that current federal opera hits them from detaining or essentially, getting involved in enforcing immigration laws today, we're painting offense. And that was, of course really mocked by a lot of by legacy media. But it's because they're barred, as I understand it by federal law, some in the administration have suggested. Well, let's redefine, how we view the cartels, look at the terror group so that they can engage is that is that a wise move to do, so would that help us more effectively deal with the problem and down there, because I know that they control pretty much a huge sector of the border and across the border without them knowing is that the best way to deal with it. I'm not sure I think that we've had a number of different approaches failed so I'm sympathetic those who want to try something different the same time. I'm not a fan of trying to shoehorn different kinds of threats into the same cookie cutter shape in a lot of people have very clear impressions of what is a terrorist, although it's actually harder to find one might think at first. Yeah. There's definitely elements of what these drug lords gangs thugs do in our country, and in other countries that seem terrorist, like, but I think that we should just be wonderful for lawmakers might get their heads together and adds some categories and some tools to those who are trying to keep us safe so they can do what they need to do. Instead of us trying to stretch the definition of terrorists feet to fit everything that needs to be done. No. Absolutely one last thing before I let you go, because I know that, that you, visit Hong Kong, and I know that you have a lots of stuff 'cause you travel extensively and, you know, so much about this. I mean, it's, it's been covered by I see it's covered by international media, but it's not really being discussed here in the United States so much, and I don't think that people understand the significance of it. They had a huge protest over the weekend over away. I think they said over a million people marching in Hong Kong over Chinese extradition law. Because China Beijing was trying to say, well, if there's, they don't want Hong Kong to become like, the, the Star Wars Cantina essentially for criminals, and they can escape over there. And we have no way to get our hands on them. And people in Hong Kong say, that's just a way for Beijing. To try to control us sand. They have very specious justifications for going after individuals. They could go after innocent people, and some have said that this is the last the really the last stand for Hong Kong to be more independent from China. How put this in layman's terms because it hasn't really been discussed a lot. But this is huge Hong Kong is very, obviously not as controlled by as the rest of the mainland. And they have a very different relationship. It isn't really is that an exaggeration to say that this is kind of the last stand for them in terms of having their own independence from Beijing. I think it's very, very close to that last straw, and for people to understand what this means in nineteen Ninety-seven, Hong Kong was transferred from British sovereignty to Chinese sovereignty, under the People's Republic of China, and they put forward a promise of one country, two systems, which is gobbledegook. What would it mean is Hong Kong supposed to continue to operate in a separate system? Capitalist market economy was supposed to basically continue as it was just changed flags and some window dressing and what you're seeing in the streets, now is, is proof positive. That vision can't keep its words very, very relevant to a time when we're trying to make other deals with China with regard to trade and North Korea and other areas, if they can keep his word with its own citizens. Why would we think that they would treat foreigners any better? And when you say big there, a big protests, and there are protests, and I think that's the diplomatic counting word for this one in six of the entire population. Then when they say one in every seven people were out in the streets. It's something like that enormous in more. So we just stink anything in American history that could have ever happened. That would have got one six of the population to rise up. I think you would qualify that if they dead serious issue in. So that's, that's how the people of Hong congress seeing this, and these are not people that are easily agitated out into the streets are people who are very good about just going about their business working markets, very internationalized in many ways. This only happens when there's something really fundamentally wrong. And it's, it's a it's a clear canary in the coal mine, when it comes to the entire Chinese experience, under the communist party. So I do hope people dig into it and get more familiar. That's a really good point that you made if they can't even keep their promise to their own citizens. How in the world can we expect them to keep any sort of promise to any foreign entities? Steven Yates were so glad to have you back this weekend or even traveling. Thank you so much for giving us some of your time, and I have a great rest of your week, my friend. Thank you, take care. Of course, you till we have today in stupidity still on the way and you don't wanna miss that as well..
"hong congress" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Today, we have intimidation in Hong Kong, the last bastion of Chinese freedom that we know in East Asia. Is it your measure that the Hong congress and you've traveled there often are aware that the lights are going out in their quest for freedom? Could even to Gordon good evening, John and Thaddeus. And yes, they've very much aware of that because what we're seeing on the part of the Hong Kong chief executive, as basically Beijing stooge is an attempt to push through amendments to two ordinances, it's generally called the extradition Bill, and it would allow Beijing to take people off the streets of Hong Kong bring them into the mainland for quote unquote Justice there and it would be a streamlined procedure. And essentially many people are saying that this is the last stand for freedom in Hong Kong. That is. Gordon. Is there anything the people on this really going to become a complete well, many people think that it's fate accomplish. Because Carrie Lam has the votes in ledge code legislative council. But we do know that there is broad based opposition in society to this. There was a demonstration about a month ago organizers as we heard from Mark Clifford last week didn't even think that they wanted to put on a demonstration because they didn't think they'd get anybody. But perhaps they got more than a hundred thousand people into the streets. There's another demonstration, which I think, is tuned, nice and expecting more people that and we've seen across Hong Kong society, a number of groups that are normally reticent have spoken out, including a justices of the course I, quote from a Wall Street Journal essay about June fourth nineteen eighty nine that's the tenement massacre, the. Shouts of quote down with the pay show shouts of time for democratic China. Shouts of n one party rule. Gordon, those shouts were met with mass murder. That's what those mouth of shots from at with is there any reason to believe that, that will be any different here in twenty nineteen. Is there anything that holds back the Chinese communist party from brutalizing the people Hong Kong who come out and mass demonstration? Yeah. I think that the only thing that would hold up back. Is that if there was very clear that you had a million people in the streets that would stop of the Chinese, I mean, in the two thousand fourteen and Brel revolution. But you had and over the course of a month more than a million people come out the Chinese garrison did not come out of his barracks, and that's largely because of strained restraint on the part of the garrison commander. But also, I think because the people of Hong Kong intimidated, the government of Hong Kong, such as it is and intimidated, the people in Beijing. So that's what could prevent a massacre. But, you know, siege in paying the Chinese ruler is absolutely determined to maintain communist party rule. So we can't rule out any scenario satis. No. We've seen some of the weakness of the regime having golden in the way, the Twitter was banning people even referencing Tiananmen Square bursary. Correct. Yes. And also, they stopped the VPN of virtual private networks. These are the sites that are allowed people to say jump over the firewall. In other words to access sites outside China, and there have been a number of things that have occurred where it's basically a crackdown. There was the Twitter issue and a few others, clearly, the regime is screaming concerned about even the slightest hint of dissent, when it comes to tenement because thirtieth anniversary round number that's going to be a problem. They've got another problem coming up, and that is the seventy anniversary of the People's Republic on October one that is probably going to be even more dangerous for the regime because the regime got to celebrate that day. And when they start to celebrate it who knows what might occur, Gordon, the financial times in these last hours published a piece from Beijing by Lucy. Hornby I- I-, puzzled about it. I read from the second and third paragraph thirty years later, meeting, thirty years from Chinaman's massacre, young Chinese enjoy, many of the benefits that the protesters chanted men sought freedom to travel abroad, freedom to choose their own jobs and respite from the daily burdens of corruption and inflation, but far from seeking democracy says the financial times another right there elders demanded they are instead growing disenchanted with the US amid a protracted trade war, and a sense that China is finally America's equal on many fronts. This is a puzzle garden. I think what it's telling me is that the young Chinese are okay with the communist party rule. I think what it's telling me is that access to a while. Smartphone is better than the freedom to have as many children as you want. I think that's what is telling me. But I'm not sure well yeah, that's what that article is tell you. But the question is whether that's Representative or not. And that's extremely difficult to tell because you can't have a foreign reporter going around talking to people and expect them to open up and to say what they really think we've had so many instances, John of even Chinese officials who in public will say, you know, about parrot the party line. But in private among themselves have been known to say the most pro democratic things because the Chinese are not morons. So the point here is, yes, the F T can write articles like that. But I don't really know that's Representative. And you know, people say the same thing about people in Hong Kong that they aren't interested in politics. And yet, when the time is, ripe, a million of them, we'll go onto the streets and complain that is makes you wonder who wrote that article Walter any junior I mean you go to Palestinian as communist nation, you're gonna ask the people on the street what they think and expect to get the truth. They're gonna give already line. I mean emails, this article, and it really propaganda when you think about according, it's the whole prosperity Trump's liberty. And if the United States is making themselves bad by enforcing tariffs. I'm poor victim communist regime in Beijing. I mean it's the same garbage. You have you day. Yeah, I tend to think that that's absolutely right. That is the reason is that, you know, we know from behavior Chinese people that, for instance, they leave when they think that things are getting bad. And a lot of Chinese insect, have left you walk. We've talked about this so many times, you walk around the streets of big American cities. You see Chinese people, they're not by accident, they're not tourists there because they believe that the US is far, better society, even if they think that it's a declining one, they just want to breathe a little bit of freer. So the problem, I think with all of these articles is that I it, it just parrots a communist party line, which is not correct. Shea Jinping has no success. According just the does the party understand that as a weakness or a strength thirty years after ten that's one of the reasons why you have a number of Chinese who are so nervous about this -ociety that they've decided to leave it isn't obvious weakness, party seemed to absolve the one problem of what credit for seems. And that's succession when Deng Xiaoping instituted rules guidelines norms. They developed over a couple of decades, CENA's, does you point out is he's the institutionalized the party. So China's gone backwards to a mouse era Chinese people know what happened during the Maoist times, and they just don't want that. I mean the problem for the communist party is that it can coerce but it can't lead. It's lost hearts and minds. And people know that the communist system, ultimately isn't going to work. And that's the fatal flaw of communism today. June fourth nineteen eighty nine..
