On his last day in office, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hit China with new sanctions by declaring that China’s repression of Muslims and ethnic minorities in the western Xinjiang province constitute a “genocide.”

Pompeo made the determination on Tuesday just 24 hours before President-elect Joe Biden takes office. There was no immediate response from the incoming Biden administration, although several members have been sympathetic to such a designation in the past.

Pompeo’s determination does not come with any immediate repercussions.

“I have determined that the People’s Republic of China is committing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang, China, targeting Uyghur Muslims and members of other ethnic and religious minority groups,” Pompeo tweeted.

“These acts are an affront to the Chinese people and to civilized nations everywhere. The People’s Republic of China and the CCP must be held to account.”

And this is where I think the Chinese actually have it right. The Japanese too. Islam has no place in any nation that isn’t Islamic. As their endgame is to turn every nation into an Islamic Nation.

Kind of like Communists. Only with more violent beheadings.

Excellent point and reminder, thanks.

Problem is, we're the Uyghurs now.

Tomorrow at Noon EST (1700Zulu), we're under the Chinese Communist flag.

No argument there.

Is it wrong to wish for a Flight 93 to complete its mission tomorrow?

Well my current plan A, is to get off grid, become ungoverned, and enjoy the rest of my life being self sufficient. Getting away from the city will get my health back, and decentralize power. If everyone did that, maybe the socialists would not have the power they do.

That being said, selling everything in a market when nobody has any money is going to suck. However... With that new stimulus lol....
