White House Slams Hong Kong Over Election Delay

Published

White House

The White House has come out and slammed the Chinese Communist Party after they reached a decision to delay their September election, saying this is another attempt to stifle the former British colony’s autonomy.

This kind of comes at a strange time, especially since President Trump suggested possibly delaying our own elections in November until people could safely vote in person, which went over like a lead balloon with the American public.

Of course, there’s a strong possibility that Trump was simply trolling, as he is wont to do quite often, so maybe we ought to take that particular tweet with a grain of salt.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany went on to condemn how a dozen pro-democracy activists were barred from standing for election.

“This action undermines the democratic processes and freedoms that have underpinned Hong Kong’s prosperity,” she told reporters. “This is only the most recent in a growing list of broken promises by Beijing, which promised autonomy and freedom to the Hong Kong people until 2047 under the Sino-British Joint Declaration.”

But coming only a day after President Trump floated the idea of delaying the United States’s November election, her words immediately provoked a backlash as commentators questioned whether the Trump administration had the moral authority to weigh in.

Howard French, author of several books on China, responded with a simple “Lololol” on Twitter.

It’s true that Trump’s statement definitely seems strange in light of the stance the White House is taking with the Chinese election delay, but again, it seems likely that the president was giving the Democrats out there the business over their ridiculous desire to see everything shutdown over the coronavirus indefinitely.

Perhaps Trump was saying, “hey, you know, instead of doing mail-in voting, we could just delay the election until it’s safe to come out again. You’ll get more of me for president! Yay!”

It’s like using reverse psychology.

Let’s hope that was what it was all about.

Man Arrested for Rape Is Let Out of Jail Over COVID-19, Then Murders the Woman He Raped

Still want to let criminals out?

Democrat policies made this unfortunate story possible. Liberal “leaders” won’t take any of the blame, though. Sure, the only person to commit a criminal act was Ibrahim Bouaichi, but he shouldn’t have been released from jail in the first place. Are Dems still cool with freeing bad people? From TDW: A Maryland man being held in a Virginia prison on rape charges was released over coronavirus concerns, then allegedly murdered his accuser, according to police. Police tracked down and found Ibrahim Bouaichi, 33, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday. Authorities sought Bouaichi in connection with the death of Karla Dominguez, who had accused Bouaichi of rape and testified against him in October, according to The Washington Post. CONTINUED: When police located Bouaichi, he fled in his car until he crashed. Police moving to arrest him found that he had apparently shot himself. Bouaichi remained in critical condition on Thursday. Partly on Dominguez’s testimony, Bouaichi was indicted on five felony charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction, and burglary. Bouaichi was held without bail in an Alexandria prison facility until April 9, when Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins ordered his release on a $25,000 bond.

Busted.

If Rashida Tlaib was a Republican and got caught illegal distributing funds from a campaign, there would be calls for her immediate resignation. But she’s a Democrat – so it’s all good! From Fox News: Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself from her campaign coffers after she had been elected to Congress in 2018. The bipartisan House Ethics Committee found the Michigan Democrat’s violation “was one of bad timing and not ill intent.” The committee ordered her to pay $10,800 of the $17,500 she received from her campaign in 2018. Congressional candidates are allowed to draw paychecks from their campaigns, but payments are only allowed during an active candidacy. Continued: “The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” the committee wrote Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1245428215751065602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245428215751065602&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F04%2F01%2Frep-rashida-tlaib-reminds-us-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-exposing-structural-racism-in-the-us%2F REACTIONS:
