China, Russia and Cuba won seats on the UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday despite opposition from activist groups over their abysmal human rights records, but another target, Saudi Arabia, lost.

When I think of oppressive, bloody dictatorial regimes that stomp the faces of their citizens into the ground under the heel of steel-toe boots, I think of nations like Russia, China and Cuba. The fact that any of these three brutal countries could become part of the UN Human Rights Council is stupefying, but all three becoming members on the same day? Demonic. But that’s all “par for the course” at the godless United Nations. Did you know that God mentions the United Nations in the bible prophecy? It sure is.

“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8 (KJB)

“For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.” Zechariah 14:2 (KJB)

Many places in the bible point to a day where all the nations of the world will unite together to fulfill bible prophecy. The prophets tell us that when all the nations of the world finally come together, as they did when the United Nations was formed on October 24, 1945, they will be ultimately led by Antichrist to come against the nation of Israel. Now do you see why Russia, China and Cuba – three of the most repressive and violent regimes in human history – are now on the UN Human Rights Council? Tick, tock…and the needle moves forward yet again.

China, Russia and Cuba win seats on UN rights council, Saudis lose

FROM WSOC TV: Russia and Cuba were running unopposed, but China and Saudi Arabia were in a five-way race in the only contested race for seats on the Human Rights Council.
In secret-ballot voting in the 193-member U.N. General Assembly on that race, Pakistan received 169 votes, Uzbekistan 164, Nepal 150, China 139 and Saudi Arabia just 90 votes.

Despite announced reform plans by Saudi Arabia, Human Rights Watch and others strongly opposed its candidacy saying the Middle East nation continues to target human rights defenders, dissidents and women’s rights activists and has demonstrated little accountability for past abuses, including the killing of Washington Post columnist and Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two years ago.

Under the Human Rights Council’s rules, seats are allocated to regions to ensure geographical representation. Except for the Asia-Pacific contest, the election of 15 members to the 47-member Human Rights Council was all but decided in advance because all the other regional groups had uncontested slates.

Four countries won four Africa seats: Ivory Coast, Malawi, Gabon and Senegal. Russia and Ukraine won the two East European seats. In the Latin American and Caribbean group, Mexico, Cuba and Bolivia won the three open seats. And Britain and France won the two seats for the Western European and others group.

“Saudi Arabia’s failure to win a seat on the Human Rights Council is a welcome reminder of the need for more competition in U.N. elections,” Human Rights Watch’s U.N. director, Louis Charbonneau, said after the results were announced, “Had there been additional candidates, China, Cuba and Russia might have lost too,” he said. “But the addition of these undeserving countries won’t prevent the council from shining a light on abuses and speaking up for victims. In fact, by being on the council, these abusers will be directly in the spotlight.”

Charbonneau earlier criticized U.N. member states, including Western nations, saying: “They don’t want competition. … Essentially these are backroom deals that are worked out among the regional groups.” Last week, a coalition of human rights groups from Europe, the United States and Canada called on U.N. member states to oppose the election of China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Pakistan and Uzbekistan, saying their human rights records make them “unqualified.”

“Electing these dictatorships as U.N. judges on human rights is like making a gang of arsonists into the fire brigade,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch. The Geneva-based rights organization published a 30-page joint report with the Human Rights Foundation and the Raoul Wallenberg Center for Human Rights evaluating candidates for council seats. The report lists Bolivia, Ivory Coast, Nepal, Malawi, Mexico, Senegal and Ukraine — all winners — as having “questionable” credentials due to problematic human rights and U.N. voting records that need improvement. It gave “qualified” ratings only to the United Kingdom and France.

Human Rights Watch pointed to an unprecedented call by 50 U.N. experts on June 26 for “decisive measures to protect fundamental freedoms in China,” warning about its mass rights violations in Hong Kong and Tibet and against ethnic Uighurs in the Chinese province of Xinjiang as well as attacks on rights defenders, journalists, lawyers and government critics. Their call was echoed by over 400 civil society groups from more than 60 countries.

Of the four winners of seats in the Asia-Pacific group, China got the lowest vote.

The rights group said Russia’s military operations with the Syrian government “have deliberately or indiscriminately killed civilians and destroyed hospitals and other protected civilian infrastructure in violation of international humanitarian law,” and noted Russia’s veto of U.N. Security Council resolutions on Syria, including blocking Damascus’ referral to the International Criminal Court.

The Geneva-based Human Rights Council can spotlight abuses and has special monitors watching certain countries and issues. It also periodically reviews human rights in every U.N. member country. Created in 2006 to replace a commission discredited because of some members’ poor rights records, the new council soon came to face similar criticism, including that rights abusers sought seats to protect themselves and their allies.

The United States announced its withdrawal from the council in June 2018 partly because it considered the body a forum for hypocrisy about human rights, though also because Washington says the council is anti-Israel. Human Rights Council spokesman Rolando Gomez said when the newly elected members take their seats in January, 119 of the 193 UN member States will have served on the council, reflecting its diversity and giving the council “legitimacy when speaking out on human rights violations in all countries.”

“No country has a perfect human rights record … (and) “no state is immune from scrutiny of their human rights record, whether they are a member or not,” Gomez said. “If a State thinks they can conceal the human rights violations they may have committed, or escape criticism by sitting on the Human Rights Council, they are greatly mistaken.” READ MORE

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

Tensions Mount In South China Sea As Chinese Communist Party Official Threatens To ‘Shoot Down’ Nancy Pelosi’s Plane If It Flies To Taiwan

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

As tensions mount over US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s potential trip to Taiwan, the Chinese navy has been monitoring the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier’s activities in the South China Sea.

A Chinese Communist Party mouthpiece said on Friday that it could shoot down Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plane if she makes a stop in Taiwan, a move he said is tantamount to an “invasion” of the island. If US fighter jets escort Pelosi’s plane into Taiwan, it is invasion. The PLA has the right to forcibly dispel Pelosi’s plane and the US fighter jets, including firing warning shots and making tactical movement of obstruction. If ineffective, then shoot them down. That message on Twitter has since been removed.

“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)

Personally, I do not see China ‘shooting down’ Nancy Pelosi’s plane should she actually take her proposed trip to Taiwan, but that’s not to say that China will just sit idly by and watch it happen. China has no intention of letting go of Taiwan, and just as Russia invaded Ukraine, the possibility of China mobilizing in Taiwan is fairly high. One thing’s for sure, though, the ‘big three’ in end times prophecy – China, Russia and Iran – have all been quite active, and there is no reason to think that won’t continue and escalate. As far as China is concerned, I think Nancy Pelosi is using this proposed trip to Taiwan to attempt to jumpstart a failing Democrat Party sagging under the dead weight of Biden’s  impotent pretend presidency.

Pelosi Taiwan visit: region ‘tense’ as Chinese navy watches US warships, holds drills in South China Sea

FROM MSN: The nuclear-powered warship was cruising about 185km (115 miles) from the contested Fiery Cross Reef in the Spratlys chain on Thursday, according to publicly available satellite images. Two other vessels – identified by Vietnam-based maritime observer Duan Dang as a Chinese Type 052D destroyer and a Type 054A frigate – were seen 27km and 23km away.

The Reagan and its carrier strike group left Singapore on Monday and headed for the South China Sea, as Pelosi’s trip – which she has not confirmed – causes a ruckus, with Beijing warning that the United States will face “forceful measures” if it goes ahead.

“Preparing for war!” This short social media post by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) 80th Group Army generated over 300,000 thumbs-up in 12 hours on Friday, amid high morale among Chinese soldiers ahead of the 95th anniversary of the founding of the PLA and escalating tensions across the Taiwan Straits.

Beijing sees it as a move that would “seriously violate China’s sovereignty” – it regards Taiwan as part of its territory and has vowed to bring the self-ruled island under its control. The People’s Liberation Army has called on the US to commit to its pledge not to support independence in Taiwan.

Pelosi, despite being an American lawmaker and not an official of the executive branch which spearheads foreign policy, has been repeatedly described by Beijing as the “No 3 of the US government”.

The US aircraft carrier strike group – which includes the USNS Tippecanoe replenishment oiler and the USS Antietam cruiser – has been travelling northeast and if the vessels continue in that direction they will reach the Taiwan Strait.

It comes as the PLA Navy is conducting routine military drills off its southern coast near Guangdong, following exercises in nearby Hainan province.

An area in the South China Sea about 89km from Macau will be closed to ships on Saturday for military exercises, according to a notice issued by China’s Maritime Safety Administration. The Gulf of Tonkin off southwestern Guangdong will also be a no-go zone on Tuesday and Wednesday while gunnery exercises are carried out. READ MORE

Chinese officials have threatened military action if U.S. house speaker Nancy Pelosi visits Taiwan during a congressional trip to Asia. China claims the self-ruling island of Taiwan is a part of its territory. Christina Ruffini has more.
