China’s defense minister threatened all-out war while discussing Taiwan’s independence during a meeting between top Chinese and American military officials. The threats were made on Friday during the first face-to-face meeting of U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Chinese Defense Minister General Wei Fenghe.
“If anyone dares to split Taiwan from China, the Chinese army will definitely not hesitate to start a war no matter the cost,” warned China’s defense spokesman Wu Qian – who was quoting General Wei.
The saber-rattling continued as the Chinese defense minister declared that Beijing would “smash to smithereens” any effort to maintain Taiwan’s independence. The ministry vowed that Taiwan would be made part of China for the “unification of the motherland.”
During the 30-minute summit at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, General Wei “stressed that Taiwan is China’s Taiwan… Using Taiwan to contain China will never prevail.”
Qian said the meeting was a “good start” to resuming normal military dialogue, and both countries agreed to continue communicating.
Austin pointed out there has been a “steady increase in provocative and destabilizing military activity near Taiwan.”
Austin called on China “to refrain from further destabilizing actions toward Taiwan.”
“We remain focused on maintaining peace, stability and the status quo across the Taiwan Strait,” Austin proclaimed. “But the PRC’s moves threaten to undermine security, and stability, and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific.”Austin hinted at a parallel with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, stating that the indefensible assault on a peaceful neighbor has galvanized the world and … has reminded us all of the dangers of undercutting an international order rooted in rules and respect.”Austin added, “Rules-based international order matters just as much in the Indo-Pacific as it does in Europe.””Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is what happens when oppressors trample the rules that protect us all,” Austin said. “It’s what happens when big powers decide […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
