U.S. RELATIONS WITH CHINA WERE JUST DESTROYED, AND NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME AGAIN

SOURCE: THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE
Our relationship with China just went from bad to worse, and most Americans don’t even realize that we just witnessed one of the most critical foreign policy decisions of this century. The U.S. Senate just unanimously passed the “Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019”, and the Chinese are absolutely seething with anger. Violent protests have been rocking Hong Kong for months, and the Chinese have repeatedly accused the United States of being behind the protests. Whether that is true or not, the U.S. Senate has openly sided with the protesters by passing this bill, and there is no turning back now.

The protesters in Hong Kong have been waving American flags, singing our national anthem and they have made it exceedingly clear that they want independence from China. And all of us should certainly be able to understand why they would want that, because China is a deeply tyrannical regime. But to the Chinese government, this move by the U.S. Senate is essentially an assault on China itself. They are going to argue that the U.S. is inciting a revolution in Hong Kong, and after what the Senate has just done it will be very difficult to claim that is not true.

The Chinese take matters of internal security very seriously, and the status of Hong Kong is one of those issues that they are super sensitive about. China will never, ever compromise when it comes to Hong Kong, and if the U.S. keeps pushing this issue it could literally take us to the brink of a military conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing for the US government to do, is no guarantee that it will not do just that; the passing of the bill, backing the Hong Kong protestors, through
the "Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019", passed by the US Senate, is just that kind of move.

And while my sympathies are completely with the protestors, to irk the Chinese government in this way, just at the same time in which the Trump administration is dealing with a very difficult, contentious, trade deal with China; please, where in Heaven's name does this help the demonstrators, unless the US Congress is ready to declare war against China, and "Liberate" Hong Kong?!??

And we have a companion piece, from aljazeera com, from one day ago, with the following headline: China demands Trump veto bills on Hong Kong: Beijing warns Washington of 'strong countermeasures' if Trump signs off on legislation supporting Hong Kong protesters.

What Congress has done here, in its partisan fury to further geopolitically crucify Trump, has been to put President Trump into a completely untenable position; if he signs the bill, it may well destroy any possible attempt to salvage negotiations on this trade deal, while he is still in office; if he vetoes the bill, he will be called out by the Dementocrats, as "an agent for Beijing".

One thing is unmistakably clear here, however; those who wrote, and passed this bill in the Senate, do not give a damn about how much people, particularly our farmers, are suffering from the absence of a working trade bill with China, and apparently are hell-bent on continuing this economic pain, until the next election; that, truly, is what this legislation is all about.

The protesters are bought and...

Ethan Allen and...

paid for stooges of the US government. Why would anybody sympathize with criminals and terrorists? Somebody needs to read George Washington's Farewell Address.
