Panama Foreign Minister Frustrated by Biden, Says 85,000 Haitians ‘All Are Heading Toward the U.S.’

Tens of thousands of Haitians attempting to cross the United States Southern Border has created a crisis, but it may only just be the tip of the iceberg. Panama’s Foreign Minister Erika Mouynes said in an interview with Axios that over 85,000 Haitians have crossed through Panama in 2021 and “they all are heading toward the U.S.”

“We’ve engaged with every single authority that we can think of, that we can come across, to say, ‘Please, let’s pay attention to this,” said Mouynes who is frustrated “that the Biden administration seemed caught off guard by the Haitian migrant crisis because ‘we sounded the alarm when we should have” reports Axios.

Mouynes had meetings on Monday and Tuesday in Washington with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and members of Congress. In her meetings, she called on the U.S. to help enforce a plan in the region, saying, ultimately, “let’s recognize that they all are heading toward the U.S.”

Axios reports “roughly 20,000 to 25,000 Haitians have already made the trek to the U.S.-Mexico border, with most being allowed to enter the United States.” This means, “beyond those already admitted or deported ack to Haiti, another 60,000 are most likely still on their way north, the minister said.”

Pro-migration messaging from the U.S. “and some South American nations has played a role in the uptick” writes Axios. “Panama is expecting more migrants to cross through the dangerous jungles of the Darién Gap this month than in all of 2019 — nearly 27,000, according to Panamanian government estimates provided to Axios.”

    Demand that this Administration tell the American People their plan of a reset to take their money, their private property, and create a un-utopian society that will only benefit Democrat Elitists

    “Primarily, many people want blue policies to remain in blue states”

    Wrong…..Democrats want their “Blue Policies” i.e. free stuff for everyone who is not a Natural Born American Citizen to be spread ESPECIALLY into “Red States” so they can turn those “Red States” into “Blue States.” That…Is…The…Goal…!

    Remember Obama’s plan, to move EVERYONE from the middle of the US, to the two coasts and make the middle states all Natural habitat? Guess he’s gonna put Blue on one side and red on the other, w/himself (MAYBE his THRONE) and his “servants” (all the illegals) in the middle to protect/serve him. I believe the Bible describes this as “the Anti-Christ”!!! That would fit w / “NO guns” no money, everything dished out as HE wants, to those he wants. May also fit w/Nastradomus’ vision, before anyone knew there was an “America”, of an unknown continent, w/OUT either the east or west coasts. That much weight, and that much drilling for wells, would sink both sides, as is already beginning to happen. That is why Texas is now switching to ground water, rather than wells. One OT Bible professor who has been studying the “end times” for 20 yrs, says we are not GOING INTO them, we are in the MIDDLE of them, and our Lord could now come any day or night, and fulfill the scriptures, regarding the end! “I Wish We’d All Been Ready!” How sad many will be, when their child, or loved one, looks at them-after learning their destination, and says “YOU, Never Mentioned Him to ME!”

China Warns Olympic Athletes Could Face Serious Consequences if they Speak Publicly on Human Rights

Published

Olympics

The 2022 Winter Olympic Games are prepared to begin February 4th in Beijing, but not without consequences. Chinese officials have issued a “warning” to all foreign athletes that they are “subject to certain punishment” if they speak “against the Olympic spirit.”

That “Olympic spirit” means politically speaking out about China. “Any behavior or speech that is against the Olympic spirit, especially against Chinese laws and regulations, are also subject to certain punishment,” said Yan Shu, deputy director-general of international relations for the Beijing Organizing Committee (BOC).

National Review notes the Chinese Party’s suppression of speech is well known and many are concerned with consequences and punishments for political speech because of strict local laws. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said the Olympic Charter Rule banning protesting at medal ceremonies would force athletes to follow “applicable public law.”

The Associated Press reports according to the IOC athletes can “enjoy freedom of speech” when speaking to journalists or posting to social media during the games. However, the committee expressed any measures that would protect athletes from Chinese persecution.

CBS Sports reports Global Athlete Group director general Rob Koehler suggested Olympians could suffer severe consequences if they criticize China, especially while in the country itself. “Silence is complicity and that’s why we have concerns,” said Koehler. “We know the human rights record and the allowance of freedom of expression in China, so there’s really not much protection” he added.

Last month White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the U.S. government delegation planned to boycott the Olympic Games over the Chinese government’s human rights abuses, including the presumed detention of tennis star Peng Shuai.

“The Biden administration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the Beijing 2022 winter Olympics and Paralympic Games given the PRC’s ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang and other human rights abuses. The athletes on team USA have our full support. We will be behind them 100 percent as we cheer them on from home. We will not be contributing to the fanfare of the games,” Psaki said.

Psaki Warns Russia Could ‘At Any Point Launch An Attack In Ukraine’

Published

Jen Psaki

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki warned that tensions between Russia and Ukraine have grown to the point where “we are now at a stage where Russia could at any point launch an attack in Ukraine.”

Psaki made the comments in response to a reporter asking about Secretary of State Antony Blinken traveling to Europe to meet with top Russian officials.

“This morning, Secretary Blinken spoke with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov. They agreed to meet in Geneva as you noted. At that meeting, Secretary Blinken will urge Russia to take immediate steps to de-escalate,” Psaki said. “He will also fly to Kiev to consult with President Zelensky and Ukraine’s leaders and to Germany for consultations. As you also know, there is a congressional delegation that is also on their way there. And it’s a note, I would note that that just indicates that support for Ukraine has always been a bipartisan issue, and we welcome that.”

“But where things stand right now, President Putin has created this crisis by amassing 100,000 Russian troops along Ukraine’s borders.

This includes moving Russian forces into Belarus recently for joint exercises and conducting additional exercises on Ukraine’s eastern border,” she continued. “So, let’s be clear, our view is this is an extremely dangerous situation. We are now at a stage where Russia could at any point launch an attack in Ukraine.”

Psaki said that Blinken will push for a diplomatic way forward to de-escalate the situation and that if Russia invades then they “are going to suffer severe economic consequences.”

Russia has been behaving more aggressively in recent months as it has moved military forces to Latin America and might relocate nuclear weapons near the United States coastline.

Russian President Vladimir Putin “wants to extend Russia’s sphere of influence to Eastern Europe and secure written commitments that NATO will never again enlarge,” The New York Times reported. “If he is frustrated in reaching that goal, some of his aides suggested on the sidelines of the negotiations last week, then he would pursue Russia’s security interests with results that would be felt acutely in Europe and the United States.”

“There were hints, never quite spelled out, that nuclear weapons could be shifted to places — perhaps not far from the United States coastline — that would reduce warning times after a launch to as little as five minutes, potentially igniting a confrontation with echoes of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis,” The Times added.

“The current crisis was touched off by the Kremlin’s release of a series of demands that, if the U.S. and its allies agreed, would effectively restore Russia’s sphere of influence close to Soviet-era lines, before NATO expanded into Eastern Europe. It has also demanded that all U.S. nuclear weapons be withdrawn from Europe, saying it felt threatened by their presence — though the types and locations of those weapons haven’t changed in years. And it wants a stop to all Western troop rotations through former Warsaw Pact states that have since joined NATO.”
