The strain between the U.S. and China hasn’t been getting any better at all. This includes the issues we’ve been dealing with regarding trade agreements all the way down to our democratic values. It isn’t as if the President hasn’t been diligent in his efforts to develop better relations with China, it just seems that China has been obstinate. This latest insult might even cross the boundaries of stubborn, it may have been just plain threatening.

One story reported that “China’s Defense Ministry suggested on Wednesday that the government of Hong Kong, besieged for two months by pro-democracy protests, has the legal right to request the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) “maintain social order” by attacking the protesters.”

So what does that have to do with the U.S., right? Well, according to the Chinese Ministry and their accusation, we have been “orchestrating” and apparently supporting these protests. That must certainly be news to the U.S. government despite Mr. Biden’s curious monetary ties to China. It really does seem a bit ludicrous though; what does America have to gain by promoting or empowering a group of protesters?

More importantly, what exactly did China mean by telling the U.S. keeping their dirty hands out of their political landscape? Or else what? From the accusation to the tone and the verbiage used, in any language, this sure felt like a threat. Here is the exact quote as reported by our aforementioned story: “We advise the U.S. to withdraw its dirty hands from Hong Kong as soon as possible… .” How is that not a threat?

This could become an even more curious situation quickly and now with conflict on the business and political sides of our relationship? We should be paying attention. This might also remind us of why Trump wants America to be a more independent nation, relying less on foreign goods, imports and support.

Fortunately for China, we aren’t like them. We won’t consider sending an Army to handle a disagreement like the threat they made to send an army to “maintain” these (peaceful) protestors. We are better than that and hopefully, they are too.

Sure, everyone is all a buzz about the boring and overplayed Mueller thing going on in Washington right now. Apparently, that story is rapidly becoming no story at all but what is developing between China and the U.S., that could be news. Right now, it is a story on the burner and it does seem things are warming up. We will have to wait and see what comes next and how the President responds but this is no boring and drug-out conversation on Capitol Hill, this is about economic stability, national security, and one very tense relationship.

Chinese representatives made this statement regarding our involvement with the protest in Hong Kong, “I hope the U.S. will answer this question honestly and clearly: what role did the U.S. play in the recent incidents in Hong Kong and what is your purpose behind it?”

Now everyone in the world (if they aren’t too distracted by that non-event in D.C.) is watching and waiting for a response. There is a story brewing but it isn’t the one getting all the attention yet.

  1. The U.S. , it looks to me, did NOTHING, and MAYBE CHINA better back off and keep IT’S dirty HANDS OFF!. Trump is no “light weight”. Our “button” is bigger than theirs and ours works.

  2. Citizens are not the property of their government. Governments are instituted for the benefit of the governed. This thing has been upside down for far too long.

  3. I’m just a small outdoor retailer that always attended the Outdoor shows in Reno an Las Vegas Nevada. I also attended other Ski an Bike Shows. Every year as I walked around the trade show I watched an also heard the Reps for the major companies complaining that they had shoes, sportswear, etc stolen by the Chinese so they could take our product back to their country an copy. This was happening in the 80’s an beyond. It seems like this country could have done something in their own without stealing our ideas. Oh well, China? Why do you think this happened???

  4. The Chinese culture is now and has always been cunning and secretive about their government’s functions.
    If this latest outburst rhetoric is exposed to their general population there may indeed be some sort of backlash.
    It appears that China is regressing backwards towards their WARMONGER past and this will upset the worlds balance of COMMON SENSE!

  5. The HK protesters are not peaceful, despite all the CNN and BBC propaganda. The bill is dead but they keep going out to attack the police. I am in HK, so stop with the bullshit.

  6. As Alice said, “It gets and curiouser.” Who will blink first? I don’t think the Donald will. He’s too business savy.

  7. For some reason my quote wasn’t exactly correct. Here is the correction: As Alice said, “It gets curiouser and curouser.”

  8. What is also interesting is that we placed a cruiser/battleship into the Taiwan strait. I applaud President Trump’s sale of 2.5 billion of miltary hardware to Taiwan.

  9. I said are you sure you wanna threaten us CHINA? It probley wouldn’t be in your best interests for your country’s leaders to do that! Don’t mess with TRUMP! He will take care of that threat with a drop of a hat like!

  10. REMEMBER RUSSIAN COLLUSION? you can bet we have been trying to influence those protests so have other nations. we want china to spend money and time on them so they will be more apt to work with us. this is how the world turns. social media allows more players in the crazy game.

  11. Trump was right all along. We need to become a great Nation again. Stop depending on foreign goods and cheap products from other countries. We need to bring jobs back to this country so we don’t have to . We need to build this Nation up to what it once was.

  12. Trump needs to end this bs trade deal with China. They have been cheating us for decades. If China won’t cooperate, Trump needs to shut down their 3 main banks by not allowing them to deal on the world market. If he does that, they will be begging to cooperate with the U.S.

  13. Nothing to worry about….

    The “paper tiger” as the Chinese baptized the USA long ago, IS NOT GOI NG TO DO A DAMNED THING ABOUT THIS THREAT, while meanwhile, the Chinese DO have their
    “dirty little hands”EVERYWHERE and even our USA owes them even the way it walks…!!!!!

  14. China is a communist country. They are known to bring in the army against protestors. Don’t forget: 1989 Tiananmen Square protests
    The following from Wikipedia:
    The Tiananmen Square protests, commonly known in mainland China as the June Fourth Incident (Chinese: 六四事件, liùsì shìjiàn), were student-led demonstrations held in Tiananmen Square in Beijing during 1989. The popular national movement inspired by the Beijing protests is sometimes called the ’89 Democracy Movement (Chinese: 八九民运, bājiǔ mínyùn). The protests started on 15 April and were forcibly suppressed on 4 June when the government declared martial law and sent the military to occupy central parts of Beijing. In what became known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre, troops with assault rifles and tanks fired at the demonstrators and those trying to block the military’s advance into Tiananmen Square. Estimates of the death toll vary from several hundreds to several thousands, with thousands more wounded

  15. Thank God we have President Trump; and not President Clinton! I shudder to think of the way Crooked Hillery would mishandle our adversaries. All they’ed have to do to make a deal with her would have been THE AMOUNT OF MONEY SHE WOULD RECEIVE!

  16. Well the Chinese are using the Hong-Kong protest, to “deter” the attention of the world from their own incompetence – and they seem to throw oil on the fire.. Please, Mr. Trump, do not get caught by their “verbal traps” – Let them “boil over…But keep a tight watch on their dangerous commercial behavior – such as their theft of US technology. However, as far as “bending/flexing” their economy, please do not hold your breath as they are “intoxicated” with communism – they are not “cured” yet and are not ready to “give up” too much terrain as it would mean for them: ” loosing face”…
    But, hold tight with the Huawei issue – just cater to the American technology executives who sat down with you – with regard to : licensing” – and by the way, if the Chines government is so “tied” to the Huawei issue,. it means that maybe, they are using that “front” company to steal and spy on American technology.

  17. It’s time to quit pandering to the China Communist. They have no loyalty except to their own Communist ideals/beliefs. They belong to the same group of GENOCIDAL FOOLS (CHINA, GERMANY-HITLER, NORTH KOREA, RUSSIA) that mass exterminate their own citizens to preserve the dictate of self-serving leaders/groups. Fools like The Clintons. The Bidens, OBAMA, JOHN KERRY, ETC., have sold AMERICA out and it is time to TAKE AMERICA BACK!
