On Monday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show,” Congressman Greg Steube, R-FL, slammed Democrats for doing little to quell the violence that he says is spreading across the nation as the November elections draw near.
Steube, an Army veteran whose from a law enforcement family, warned that former Vice President Joe Biden and his campaign aren’t just dealing with old time Democrats but have sold out their party to a radical left that will take the party hostage if Biden were to win the election.
However, Steube said he doesn’t see that happening. The Florida congressman has seen a surge of support for President Donald Trump and many of his constituents have sighted law and order as their top concern.
Just look at what the Biden campaign has done.
For example, according to a report by The Daily Caller, Biden’s Vice Presidential pick Kamala Harris “promoted” a bail fund for protestors that’s led to the release of violent criminals, including a man who allegedly sexually assaulted an 8-year-old girl. Steube said it’s unconscionable.
“I think that they (the Democrats) think that by encouraging violence and encouraging these protests and encouraging these people to the point where you have the Vice President, candidate for the Democrats raising money to bail these people out of jail if they’re arrested for rioting, I think they think that it all settled down after Biden, if Biden were to win, that it would all settle down after the election,” said Rep. Steube.
“I tell you, the words matter, words are very important, especially from leaders of our country,” he said. “And when you have the leader of the house, declaring that Republicans are enemies of the state, you’ve taken things to a whole different level. And there are people that listen to that, that are going to react and act on that. Because the leader of their party, the highest Democrat in the country, is saying things like that, and it’s dangerous. And we’re seeing it all across the country.”
Steube applauded President Donald Trump’s efforts to put an end to the violence by threatening to pull federal funding from cities that ‘allow anarchy and rioting in the streets.”
He said Trump’s stand for law and order is something most Americans understand. Steube added that it’s those very issues that will bring the independents and voters to the polls, even those who may never have never voted before.
“And I think you’re gonna see a whole bunch of people who have never voted for before, get out and vote because they are seeing things happen in the country that they’ve never seen before,” Steube said.
“Recently, we had a woman call the office, and she said her 73-year-old boyfriend who’s never voted before in his entire life, is registering to vote to vote for the President,” he recalled. :And that’s not because suddenly he has an interest in politics, it’s suddenly because he’s seen the destruction going on in our country, and that this isn’t the America that we should have and supporting those policies that the President is supporting.”

REPORT: China has vast network of covert police stations around the world
China has a vast network of covert police stations abroad, according to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, an NGO that focuses on human rights violations in China and other Asian countries. These police stations serve consular functions, but are also used by China to crack down on what the CCP deems “illegal” activity of Chinese nationals abroad. The police stations include at least 38 run by the Fuzhou City police, and 22 run by the Qingtian City police. Cities housing these police stations include New York, Toronto (which has three stations), London (two), Paris (three), Buenos Aires, Rio De Janeiro, and Tokyo.
Key findings of the report are below.
“Persuaded to return”
According to China, China has “persuaded to return [to China]” 230,000 Chinese nationals living aboard from April 2021 to July 2022 alone to face charges of fraud and telecommunications fraud. A Yangxia police station set up in Mozambique, for example, persuaded a Chinese national to return to China after being accused of stealing money from his employer. Chinese authorities also put pressure on the accused family to convince the accused to surrender.
Roughly 54,000 Chinese nationals were persuaded to return from northern Myanmar alone, in the first nine months of 2021. In July 2022, the government of Wenchang City warned that its citizens living in northern Myanmar must check in with their local police stations or face multiple penalties including blocking their children from attending urban schools back in China. Similarly, in February 2022, the government of Liayang City stated that Chinese “illegally staying” in northern Myanmar must return or the bank accounts of their immediate family members could be frozen.
The Nine Forbidden Countries
China has claimed that nine countries contain serious levels of fraud and telecom fraud perpetrated by Chinese nationals. Since November 2021, China has declared that Chinese citizens living in these nine countries must return to China immediately unless they have an “emergency reason” or a “strict necessity” to travel or stay in those countries. Those countries are: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the UAE, and Turkey. However, the report questions whether these countries are truly awash in such fraud, as most of China’s oversees police stations are in the West, and only one of the nine countries (Cambodia) has such a police station. Chinese staying in the nine forbidden countries, as well as threats to family members as stated above, creates a “guilt-by-association” atmosphere intended to repatriate the Chinese nationals.
According to the report, Chinese police stations abroad serve to bypass “bilateral extradition treaties or other mechanisms of judicial cooperation” to cooperate with CCP-linked NGOs which effectively “[sets] up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries.” Instead of using international judicial cooperation, which establishes due process, the presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair trial, China uses the above “persuade-to-return” methods and transnational police stations to circumvent international law and coerce Chinese nationals to return to China for trials. These policies show the power of China’s long-arm oppression over its own subjects.
