This is not freedom of the press and this is not a scene that should occur in a country the world has sent its finest athletes to represent them on the global stage. A multitude of concerns surrounding China and its human rights abuses have made athletes scared about having any protection when it comes to freedom of speech.

Republican Representative Dan Crenshaw of Texas tweeted the video of a Dutch reporter quite literally being yanked off of camera during his television hit by a Chinese government official. “Day 1 of the Winter Olympics and the CCP has already physically pulled a Dutch reporter off air,” Crenshaw tweeted. “Where are the woke NBA, Nike, and Hollywood China apologists?” he added.

It was suspected that the “Public Security Volunteers” who were seen pushing the reporter away were upset that he was filming in not so “photogenic” location, according to the Daily Mail.

according to Daily Mail

“It’s begun in China where Chinese Security forces pull a reporter away from a live shot, “Former NYPD Detective Rob O’Donnell tweeted. “Why are Americans subjecting themselves to this? Boycott the Olympics!”

Republican Representatives have been calling on the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) to keep American athletes safe. America wants to support its athletes by sending them to the Olympic games, but still announced a diplomatic boycott, meaning it would not send any U.S. officials.

    I’m quite frankly surprised that reporters, athletes, and viewers of Olympics are so naive as to how dictatorships function. There is and has been no free speech, freedom to assemble (ie Tieneman Square), freedom of religion, etc even before the communists took over. Y’all assume that if we had globalism everything would be daffodils, unicorns, etc. What you’re seeing at the Olympics (total government control of what is said and what you do) is only a fraction of what the reality of communism is.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
