The Conservatives are proposing motions to sanction officials responsible for the imposition of Beijing’s national security law on Hong Kong, and to ban Huawei from Canada’s 5G networks. The proposed motion on Hong Kong, put forth by the Conservative’s shadow minister for foreign affairs Michael Chong, asks for the House of Commons to recognize the national security law as a violation of the 1984 Sino-British joint declaration. The treaty, which imposes a “one country, two system” framework, guarantees a high degree of autonomy for Hong Kong. Chong’s proposed motion also asks for the House to call on the government “to work with Canada’s allies to immediately impose sanctions, such as Magnitsky sanctions,” on those restricting Hong Kong’s freedoms. The national security law, which went into effect on June 30, gives the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) sweeping powers to target individuals for what it calls acts of secession, subversion, terrorism, or collusion with foreign forces. The offences carry a maximum penalty of life imprisonment. The law is widely seen as Beijing’s attempt to suppress prodemocracy activists in Hong Kong. Canada has joined allies United States, Australia, and the U.K. in expressing “deep concern” over the imposition of the law. Washington has also announced an end to exports of U.S.-origin defence equipment to Hong Kong, and suspended multiple bilateral agreements covering extradition and tax exemptions. Canada has also suspended its extradition agreement with Hong Kong, and started accepting Hong Kong pro-democracy activists as refugees. Huawei A second proposed motion introduced by Conservative MP Shannon Stubbs calls for Huawei to be banned from participating in Canada’s 5G network. The Canadian government is yet to make a decision on whether to exclude Huawei from its 5G networks. Canada’s allies in the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, including the United States, Australia, and New Zealand, have already banned Huawei from their 5G networks, and the U.K. is planning to phase out the use of the company in its networks in the coming years. Huawei was founded by a former officer in the People’s Liberation Army. Washington has warned Ottawa to expect cut back in intelligence sharing if Huawei is not banned from its 5G networks, as the United States is worried its data would be compromised. A recent report by the British Parliament’s defence committee said there’s “clear evidence of collusion between Huawei and the Chinese state.”
Mac SlavoSeptember 22nd, 2020SHTFplan.com United Kindom prime minister, Boris Johnson is taking a “cautious approach” to second UK coronavirus lockdown. Restrictions have been announced today, and affect small businesses and the few remainin people who actually have a job. Pubs and restaurants will be forced to close at 10 p.m. and people will be encouraged to work from home under new restrictions announced Tuesday. So far, Johnson has held back from imposing sweeping restrictions to keep people at home, as was the case at the height of the first wave. However, these measures are going to finish off wha’s left of the economy. Sadly, people are continuing to follow in lockstep with the demands of these tyrannical politicians. It’s like they haven’t learned their lesson from the first lockdown. According to Politico, Johnson told the House of Commons that Britain had reached a “perilous turning point” toward a second wave of the virus but said “we are acting on the principle that a stitch in time saves nine.” Johnson added that without a breakthrough in treatments or a vaccination, the new measures could be in place for around six months, but he warned that harsher measures could yet be imposed if the virus continues to spread quickly. “I must emphasize, that if all our actions fail to bring the [reproduction] number below one, then we reserve the right to deploy greater firepower with significantly greater restrictions,” he told MPs. “I fervently want to avoid taking this step, as do the devolved administrations, but we will only be able to avoid it if our new measures work and our behavior changes.” There is no doubt that this second lockdown hysteria could spill over into the United States. Prepare now for a second lockdown. Based on the media’s predictive programming, and the response of other countries to the “second wave,” we could be facing another lockdown too. If it never comes, than at least you’re prepared for the next crisis. President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve! He wants zero rates and QE4!
