The bitter trade dispute between China and the US is increasingly spilling into the military domain, with a risky incident in the South China Sea highlighting the dangers of souring relations.

There are two countries that are right now provoking other nations. Russia has been doing a series of fighter jet flybys over British airspace, and China has been getting closer and closer to American military interests in the South Pacific. It is no coincidence that both Russia and China recently held the largest war games together in modern times.

It is also no coincidence that Russia and China are key players in the soon coming end times drama in the time of Jacob’s trouble after the Rapture of the Church takes place.

FROM THE NAVY TIMES: The U.S. Pacific Fleet says a Navy warship had to dodge a Chinese destroyer during a Sunday morning incident in the South China Sea.

In a written statement emailed to Navy Times, Pacific Fleet officials say that a Luyang-class destroyer closed on the Decatur around 8:30 a.m. local time Sunday in “an unsafe and unprofessional” manner near Gaven Reef, making a series of “increasingly aggressive maneuvers” that were accompanied by warnings for the Decatur to leave the area.

The Chinese vessel came within 45 yards of the Decatur’s bow before the American warship veered off to prevent a collision, officials said.

“U.S. Navy ships and aircraft operate throughout the Indo-Pacific routinely, including in the South China Sea. As we have for decades, our forces will continue to fly, sail and operate anywhere international law allows,” added Cmdr. Nate Christensen, Deputy Spokesman for the U.S. Pacific Fleet.

The Decatur had been conducting a freedom of navigation operation — a “FONOP” — about 12 nautical miles away from the Gaven and Johnson Reefs in the Spratly Islands. “FONOPs are not about any one country, nor are they about making political statements. However, FONOPs challenge excessive maritime claims and demonstrate our commitment to uphold the rights, freedoms, and uses of the sea and airspace guaranteed to all nations under international law,” Chistensen said. READ MORE

As The Spy Balloon From Communist China Continues To Float Freely Over The United States, A Compromised Joe Biden Has Pusillanimous Response

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Biden Pentagon said Friday that the Chinese spy balloon is currently over the center of the continental United States and is expected to continue floating over the U.S. for a ‘few days.’

It is a scenario ripped from the pages of either Saturday Night Live, or the Manchurian Candidate, take your pick. A spy balloon from Communist China not only entering US airspace over our mainland, but being given full access to roam about anywhere they want to go. What is pretend president Joe Biden doing about all of this? Absolutely nothing, but don’t be too harsh on him. When you are as embedded with the Communist Chinese as deeply as Joe Biden and his entire family are at this point, you wouldn’t be able to do much about it, either.

“And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.” Isaiah 3:4 (KJB)

This is why so much time and effort has gone into protecting the Biden family from the contents of the Hunter Biden laptop, because if that laptop could talk it would make the case for the immediate impeachment of Joe Biden. How many millions poured in from Communist China to build the Penn Biden Center where all those classified documents were discovered? How many millions transferred themselves from China to Hunter Biden’s bank account where it was then handed out to various members of the Biden Crime Family? This is why Biden can do nothing about the spy balloon, he and his entire have already been bought and paid for by China.

Pentagon: Chinese Spy Balloon Expected to Be Over the U.S. for a ‘Few Days’

FROM BREITBART NEWS: “Right now we assess that it’ll probably be over the United States for a few days. But we’ll continue to monitor, review our options, and keep you updated as we can,” Pentagon Press Secretary Air Force Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said at a briefing.

He refused to disclose exactly where it was, however, other than it was floating “eastward.”

“What we’re not going to do is get into a hour by hour location of the balloon. Again, we’re monitoring it closely. As I mentioned, right now, it’s over the center of the continental United States. That’s about as specific as I’m going to get,” he said.

He added, however, “The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and and see where the balloon is.”

Ryder would not discuss what “options” are being reviewed about what to do about the balloon or whether it could be shot down.

“We’re reviewing options. I’m not going to go into more specifics of that,” he said.

He did say that factors included the “potential for debris” and the “impact on civilians on the ground or property damage.” He said the balloon was assessed to be at about 60,000 feet and “well above the range of civilian air traffic or where civilian air traffic would normally fly” and was not a “physical” or “military” threat at the moment.

He said the balloon had a “payload” under it, but reiterated that the balloon was for “surveillance” and not a threat.

He declined to say whether the balloon was able to be controlled by the Chinese or had an engine, but said the balloon had changed course and that it had “the ability to maneuver.” He also declined to say whether President Joe Biden wanted it to be shot down.

“I’m not gonna get into discussions, internal discussions within the White House again, right now we assess that there is no threat of physical threat or military threat to people on the ground. So we’re continuing to monitor, you know. We’ll just leave it at that,” he said.

Ryder said the Pentagon is aware of Chinese claims the balloon was a weather balloon that veered off course, but said, “We are aware of the [People’s Republic of China] statement. However, the fact is, we know that it’s a surveillance balloon and I’m not going to be able to be more specific than that.”

“We do know that the balloon has violated U.S. airspace international law, which is unacceptable. And so we’ve conveyed this directly to the PRC at multiple levels,” he said. READ MORE

NSI founder and executive director Jamil Jaffer joins ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ to weigh in on the Pentagon’s decision not to shoot down a suspected Chinese spy balloon over ‘sensitive sites.’

Did You Know That The Biden Administration Is Allowing Communist China To Set Up Secret Police ‘Service Stations’ In The United States?

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Communist China has opened dozens of ‘overseas police service stations’ around the globe to monitor its citizens living abroad, including one location in New York City and three in Toronto.

While they distract you with nonsense about Donald Trump and ‘Russian collusion’, in reality the Democrats are opening the floodgates to Communist China here in the United States. The Chinese Secret Police have been allowed to open up a ‘service station’ armed with Chinese police, to ‘keep an eye’ on Chinese citizens in New York, and when they find them, force them to return to China. Who on earth thought that this was a good idea? The New World Order Democrats love it. Up in Canada, they have three such service stations.

“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” Revelation 16:12 (KJB)

America in 2022 is a nation who has forgotten its identity, a nation that is weak and disorganized, a nation that is ripe for takeover. In Russia, Putin is succeeding in gradually drawing in NATO and the US into his little war, and now we have the Communist Chinese Secret Police setting up shop in the exact same city where the Towers were intentionally brought down to bring in the Patriot Act. Here’s a fun fact, the world’s most-visited website and the world’s most-popular app is TikTok, that is downloading private data from each and every American who uses it. Wake up, America, the wolf is past the door and in the house.

Communist China has opened police stations in US and Canada to monitor Chinese citizens

FROM THE NY POST: “These operations eschew official bilateral police and judicial cooperation and violate the international rule of law, and may violate the territorial integrity in third countries involved in setting up a parallel policing mechanism using illegal methods,” reads a report by Safeguard Defenders, a human rights watchdog, released earlier this month.

The report, titled “110 Overseas: Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild,” details China’s extensive efforts to combat “fraud” by its citizens living overseas, in part by opening several police stations on five continents that have assisted Chinese authorities in “carrying out policing operations on foreign soil.”

Europe is home to most of the police stations, with locations spread across the continent in places such as London, Amsterdam, Prague, Budapest, Athens, Paris, Madrid and Frankfurt. North America is also home to four of the stations, with three locations in Toronto and one in New York City. In all, there are 54 such stations in 30 different countries.

The report details how China has attempted to “combat the growing issue of fraud and telecommunication fraud by Chinese nationals living abroad,” running operations that have resulted in 230,000 Chinese nationals being “persuaded to return” to China “voluntarily” over the last year to face criminal prosecution.

The Chinese government has claimed that the stations provide vital services to its citizens living abroad, though the report notes that many of the services are those that would be traditionally carried out by an overseas embassy. Instead, the report argues that the stations have been used to enhance China’s overseas law enforcement capabilities in possible violation of international law. The report also outlines the potential human rights abuses associated with the stations, including using harassment and intimidation methods, such as threatening the family members of the overseas citizens. The stations have also served as centers to spread Chinese government propaganda and monitor the behavior and opinions of Chinese nationals.

“As these operations continue to develop, and new mechanisms are set up, it is evident that countries governed by the standards set by universal human rights and the rule of law urgently need to investigate these practices to identify the (local) actors at work, mitigate the risks and effectively protect the growing number of those targeted,” the report concludes.

According to a report, China has opened illegal police stations worldwide. The move comes amid its quest to emerge as a global superpower.

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army Releases Video Strongly Indicating Their Willingness To Shoot Down Nancy Pelosi’s Plane If It Goes To Taiwan

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army has issued another warning to Nancy Pelosi ahead of her expected trip to Taiwan with a video simulating a missile strike, aircraft carriers advancing and fighter jets in formation – and a stern warning from state media.

What Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and the ‘failing and flailing’ Democrats need right now more than anything else is a really, good distraction. The American people, so easily deceived and led down the garden path due to their short attention span, need to be distracted from gas prices, Bidenflation, and the ‘technical recession’ Democrats say doesn’t exist. So since monkeypox hasn’t distracted too many people, try though they may, maybe having Nancy Pelosi shot out of the sky by the Read Army will do the trick. At the very least, it’s a pretty good distraction.

“Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?” Isaiah 60:8 (KJB)

One one hand, it’s not overly likely that China will shoot Nancy Pelosi out of the sky, but then again, former Democratic National Committee head Ron Brown didn’t think he was booked on a one-way flight, either. We live in an age and time where literally anything is possible. Global lockdowns? Sure. Forced injections of citizens? Yep, we got that. Digital ID? On it’s way. Nancy Pelosi? If the New World Order decides that their cause is better served with her plane blown to pieces, you can bet the farm it will be.

The Chinese People’s Liberation Army has issued another warning to Nancy Pelosi ahead of potential trip

FROM DAILY MAIL UK: The video was posted on WeChat on Monday morning following reports the U.S. House Speaker will arrive in Taipei on Tuesday night – despite Beijing warning they could shoot her plane down and launch a military response.

Chinese state media personality Hu Xijin also issued a grim message to the top Democrat: ‘Let her go to Taiwan. But pray before departure: wish herself a safe journey and wish herself not be defined by history as a sinner who starts a spiral of escalation process expanding military frictions to a large-scale war in the Taiwan Strait.’ Senior Taiwanese government officials and a US official both told CNN that the stop is on her trip, even though it is not on her public itinerary.

Reports from TVBS News in Taiwan have said Pelosi could arrive in Taipei as early as tomorrow night and her team has booked two hotels, although there is no mention of the visit in her official itinerary. The US official added that defense department officials were working on securing a plan to keep her safe, according to CNN.  The visit will inflame tensions with China, which considers Taiwan one of its own territories.

Amid the threat, Taiwanese officials reportedly have cancelled leave for soldiers and officers ‘to immediately prepare’ for the prospect of war.

Last Friday, Chinese state media said the government was prepared to shoot Pelosi’s plane down if it was detected in its airspace accompanied by a fighter jet escort.

The latest warning was issued during a Chinese foreign ministry briefing by spokesperson Zhao Lijian, who said that because of Pelosi’s status as the ‘No. 3 official of the US government’, a visit to Taiwan, which China claims as its own, would ‘lead to egregious political impact’.

Lijian added that it would be ‘a gross interference in China’s internal affairs’ and would lead to ‘very serious developments and consequences.’ READ MORE
