U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has implored democracies to work together to defend against expansive threats posed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), calling it a choice between “freedom and tyranny.”
“We, the free nations of the world, must induce change in the CCP’s behavior in more creative and assertive ways, because Beijing’s actions threaten our people and our prosperity,” Pompeo said during a speech at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in California on July 23.
“The free world must triumph over this new tyranny,” he said, describing it as the “mission of our time.”
Pompeo called on Americans and partner countries to recognize that the CCP is fundamentally a Marxist-Leninist regime, saying the “ideology informs this decades-long desire for global hegemony of Chinese communism.” On this basis, the United States should approach the regime from the standpoint of “distrust and verify,” he said, adapting former President Ronald Reagan’s famous words regarding negotiations with the Soviet Union, “trust, but verify.”

wow... free shipping while paying for the products you asked for, which i familiar to most westerners, is not the same thing as not paying for products while receiving unsolicited items that are seeds and could very possibly be invasive species from one of the most dictatorial regimes this world has ever known...

The caption reads “Don’t tread on me. #198964,” which is a reference to both the Gadsden flag and the Tienanmen Square massacre. Tong is from a Chinese immigrant family, and he says the post was intended to express appreciation for his Second Amendment rights.
“To everyone and @fordhamuniversity: this post or my mentality is SOLELY for the memory of the thousands of armless students who had no method of defense and were massacred in 6.4.1989, and in no way advocating violence to anyone,” Tong said in a follow-up comment.
“This post is my appreciation toward the United States and the privilege in this country to have the right to bear arms, to have a populace that can defend itself from tyranny. Tiananmen Incident is a huge deal in my motherland and to my ethnicity, and so is civil rights in America, but this post is solely my belief that freedom comes from a strong and armed populace. Violence against any citizen should not be tolerated, and the Second Amendment protects us from that.”
The university wasn’t convinced by his explanation. They found him guilty of violating university policies banning “threats/intimidation.”
Don't US Tax payers pay most of the real cost of shipping junk from China? Someone does, there's no way that pack ships from China for thirteen cents.
The recent discovery of hundreds of weapons parts that arrived in U.S. soil is part of the CCP plan. Now you know where the communist scumbag in Chaz got the weapons he was giving to other communist bastards.
