The GOP Needs To Do What’s Best For America. The Senate Must Vote To Fill Justice Ginsburg’s Seat Immediately

Published

on

Supreme Court

This is a war. It’s a war for the future of this great nation.

The November Presidential election will be one of the epic battles of this war and the Democrats have already prepared the field for a long-drawn-out battle. On Friday, that war intensified unexpectedly with the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It is now up to the GOP Senate to stand firm and show the American people which side of the fence they are on.

The election battle is already expected to sweep the nation into months of confusion, hardship and uncertainty. Democrats have ensured this will happen with universal mail-in ballots. They’ve also done this by feeding the beasts of division in our urban streets and incentivizing extremist groups – like Antifa, the Black Lives Matter organization, among other radical groups – to tear our beautiful cities apart and pit our nation against itself.

And while we, the hard-working American people, were too trusting and too busy with our own lives to notice – the Socialist and Marxist Democrats infiltrated our high schools, colleges and universities. These Marxists spent decades indoctrinating our children, America’s future generations.

It is many of these young, impressionable Americans we see on the streets rioting. Moreover, we see the rise of the Marxist Socialist class and their ideology being spewed openly by newly elected Congressional Democrats, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and her squad, and others.

This liberal mob will fight dirty and make threats. It is the reason Ocasio-Cortez owns Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. It’s the reason why Ocasio-Cortez, and her now side-kick Pelosi, have threatened to impeach Trump again and Attorney General William Barr if the president attempts to fill the vacancy left by Ginsburg.

Mind you, the establishment Democrats and the Rhino ‘Lincoln Project’ Republicans will not be able to take down the beast they have fed. They’ve opened Pandora’s box and we’re seeing the results of this getting more and more dangerous every day.

Trump has the opportunity to pummel these threats to our nation. He can fight for the American people with his Constitutional right to select a nominee to fill the vacancy. It is the reason this great Republic, the American people put him into office.

Any GOP Senators walking the fence on this need to think really hard about what they are doing and why they would be willing to sacrifice such a momentous opportunity to do what’s right.

There is nothing unethical or wrong in making the selection. There is nothing unethical or wrong about the Senate voting for the nominee. There is precedent because it has happened 14 times before during an election year.

Trump is a fighter and he is poised to make his selection to fill the vacancy in the Supreme Court by Friday or Saturday. His actions will be historic and his legacy will be unshakable for this very action. Trump will go down as one of the greatest, if not the greatest President, in modern U.S. history. If the Senate doesn’t support him they will go down as America’s greatest modern failure.

How they will be remembered will be up to them. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should heed this warning and do his best to ensure that he gets the votes he needs from his colleagues, as he did during the Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanaugh’s hearings.

It won’t be easy.

The Republican dominated Senate must fight alongside Trump without hesitation. The Senators must care more about this nation and protecting the pillars of this great government than themselves.

The GOP must do what is right and they must realize that there is no turning back. There should be no compromise. The Constitution and our fragile republic is worth the fight.

If they fail to do this, the Democrats and the radical elements will seize power and momentum. The Republicans will be in the trash heap of history and the party of Abraham Lincoln will truly be hijacked by the radical left.

It will lose its power completely.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden, already has an army of lawyers – roughly 600 – working to fight the election if the outcome is even close, which is why the DNC has pushed for universal mail-in ballots.

Democrats have already promised that there will be no winner on election night. This is what the Democrats have counted on. They do not hide their intentions and frankly, they are preparing their generals for battle on the political field.

Former Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton has already called for Biden not to accept defeat on election night under any circumstances. All over social media, leftist radicals are threatening to burn down Washington D.C. if Trump – even with his Constitutional right – selects a Supreme Court justice.

The radical left is screaming mad because they know what’s at stake.

Do you? We should be just as concerned.

We should understand that we can’t take our nation for granted anymore and that this republic is fragile. We cannot be afraid. We have a chance to define ourselves at this moment in history.

We must demand the same of our Senate.

China Expands Charm Offensive in Southeast Asia to Squeeze out U.S.

Similar to what is happening in the Pacific, the US is facing a significant uphill battle to balance China’s rise in Southeast Asia. During the recent G20 and ASEAN summits in Indonesia and Cambodia, the Chinese Community Party (CCP) media upped its propaganda war against the United States over Southeast Asia. Outlets like Global Times and Xinhua claim that China’s interests in Southeast Asia are focused on mutual benefits, while the US is a malicious force in the region. The CCP press also claims that China is generously giving robust and purposeful aid to the Southeast Asian countries, while the US is neglecting them.

Claim #1: China’s Interest in Southeast Asia is Peaceful and Mutually Beneficial

China’s approach to Southeast Asia is benevolent and focused on mutual benefits, according to the CCP-run press. “China’s goal is to achieve a truly prosperous and peaceful ASEAN,” and “doesn’t interfere in ASEAN members’ internal affairs,” according to Global Times. “China focuses on pragmatic issues, such as promoting infrastructure construction, living standards, which are needed in those countries,” and “China is seeking a cooperative path toward common development,” according to another Global Times article. That same article quoted Chinese Premier Li Keqiang as stating that China and the ASEAN countries “are good neighbors who will always be there for each other…”

One country that is particularly thankful for growing Chinese influence, according to the CCP press, is Indonesia. Indonesians want China to “lead…the world to a more peaceful and prosperous future,” and view Chinese President Xi Jinping “with an apparent sense of affability and affection,” according to Global Times. Marzuki Alie, former speaker of the People’s Representative Council of Indonesia, praised China as “becom[ing] essential in improving global governance,” and that “the visionary concept of building a human community with a shared future proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping shows China is willing to work with other countries to create a peaceful and secure world with openness and inclusiveness,” according to Xinhua. And perhaps the most perplexing aspect of China’s “benevolence” in Indonesia is the “Peace Ark” – a hospital ship that has recently docked in Indonesia, but that is also a navy ship run by China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), according to Global Times.

Malaysia has a favorable view of China as well, according to the CCP press. Koh King Kee, president of Center for New Inclusive Asia, a Malaysian think tank, stated that “China is the backbone of the global supply chain and acts as a ballast stone of the global economy in times of uncertainty,” according to Xinhua.

And in response to US concerns over rising Chinese influence in Cambodia’s Ream Naval Base, Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Wang Wentian dismisses the base as not targeting any third party, according to Global Times. Cambodia’s Minister of National Defense Tea Banh further claimed that the Chinese involvement in that base is benevolent, stating that the base helps Cambodia “in cooperating with friendly countries and help[ing to] maintain regional peace, stability and prosperity,” according to that same article.

Claim #2: The US’ Interest in Southeast Asia is Manipulative, Malevolent

In contrast to China’s benevolence, the United States “only wants [ASEAN] to serve as its pawn to counter China, and to fulfill its own hegemony goal, according to Global Times. At the G20 conference in Bali, the US takes a “hegemonic, unilateral and protectionist approach,” and “is preaching war and confrontation,” according to that same article.

The US and the West are merely using the G20 summit in Bali “to advance their own geopolitical agenda against Russia, therefore preventing the crucial meeting from tackling serious economic issues,” according to another Global Times article. “Such a geopolitical focus “will worsen this uncertain and unstable world,” according to Veronika S. Saraswati, China Study Unit Convener at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies Indonesia.

According to another Global Times article, the US is using ASEAN “to drive a wedge between China and Southeast Asian nations in the future,” is attempting to “rope in the region via political, security, and value-oriented agendas,” and is trying “to buy off” Southeast Asian countries “by pledging to spend certain amount[s] of money.”

Claim #3: China gives Robust, Targeted Aid to Southeast Asia

CCP media taunts the extensive aid that China is giving to Southeast Asian countries. China has pledged $1.5 billion in “development assistance” to ASEAN countries in November 2021, and Chinese-ASEAN trade was about $878 billion in 2021, according to Global Times. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang claims that of the 160 “cooperation initiatives” that China has suggested with the ASEAN countries in the previous 10 years, over 99.5 percent of them have been implemented, as reported by another Global Times article.

Li also stated that China is planning to build emergency storage for medical supplies and rise within the ASEAN Plus Three (China, Japan and South Korea) framework, according to Global Times.

Chinese state-run media is particularly touting China’s Belt and Road investments in Southeast Asia, particularly in Indonesia and Laos. According to Global Times, the Jakarta-Bandung high speed railway will be operational in June 2023, and as a “flagship project of China-Indonesia cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative,” will be the first high speed train in Southeast Asia, according to Xinhua. China’s ambassador to Indonesia praised the project, claiming that the railway “will greatly reduce traffic jams, make travel more convenient for local people, improve local investment environment, boost businesses and tourism along the route, and accelerate the building of a high speed railway economic corridor.” The ambassador also mentioned that existing Belt and Road initiatives with Indonesia like the Indonesia Morowali Industrial Park and the PT Virtue Dragon Nickel Industry Park, “have generated tax incomes, job opportunities and foreign exchange earnings, and provided Indonesia with opportunities for greater participation in global industrial chains of stainless steel and new energy.”

Meanwhile, Global Times asserts that the China-Laos Railway has generated at least $1.7 billion in trade and has transported almost 10 million tons of goods.

Claim #4: US Investment Lags Behind China

On the other hand, the CCP media claims that the US is lagging far behind Chinese investments in Southeast Asia. President Biden’s newly announced “Comprehensive Strategic Partnership” with the ASEAN countries “…looks more like a symbolic act. The US is playing the catch-up game with China,” according to Koh King Kee, president of a Malaysian think tank, according to Global Times.

US and ASEAN trade, at $441 million in 2021, was almost half that of Chinese investment for that same time, according to Global Times. President Biden pledged to ask Congress for $850 million in aid for electric vehicles and clean energy to ASEAN countries, but this amount is “symbolic” and a “mere ‘drop in the bucket’,” according to Global Times. In May, Biden “announced a $150 million development and security package” for the ASEAN countries according to that same article, which pales in comparison to the amounts in aid that China claims it is giving those same countries.

According to Global Times, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang mentioned that US investment in ASEAN is “a drop in the bucket if compared to US support for Ukraine” during the Biden administration, which Global Times claims is “over $18.9 billion in security assistance.”

Conclusion

CCP media is waging a charm offensive targeting Southeast Asia. While China is investing heavily in these countries, the US has yet to devise a credible counter to such influence.
