VP Harris to Finally Meet with Mexican President…to Discuss Planting Trees?

There is one small ask in return…

Kamala Harris

Why would the vice president of the United States have an unpleasant conversation with the leader of another country to discuss a dismal migration crisis when you could talk about happy things, like plants and trees? Kamala Harris has chosen the latter.

In a headline that makes one do a double-take, a New York Post article reads: “VP Harris to meet with Mexican president to talk tree-planting citizenship plan.” It’s exactly as it seems; Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has a tree-planting proposal he will discuss with Harris next month.

First of all, a meeting between the two when migrant crossings between the borders are reaching record-breaking levels is long overdue. Second, tree planting? Foreign nations are having a field day with American politics. Forget the lives of hundreds of thousands of homeless immigrants; the Mexican leader has his initiative, “Planting Life.”

The Mexican leader first pitched his initiative during “Biden’s virtual climate summit at the White House on Thursday and said it could help stem the surge of immigrants to the US border” reports The New York Post. “You, President Biden, can finance the Planting Life program in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador” Obrador said on Thursday.

The initiative would include planting 1 billion fruit and timber trees. “The proposal is that we extend this program to southeastern Mexico and Central America, to plant 3 billion more trees and create 1.2 million jobs” added the Mexican president.

There is one small ask in return. “Obrador proposed the US grant six-month work visas that lead to citizenship to workers who participate in the program” reports the Post. Obrador said he hopes the project will extend into Central America, creates 1.2 million jobs and plant 3 billion more trees. Does this mean agreeing to 1.2 million visas leading to citizenship?

    This trivial crap and getting caught up in it is what’s killing our country. Stick to the basics of jobs, trade, and safety for your citizens. Harris has proven her incompetence over and over on just about any subject you can mention. What has she ever done to warrant being in the administration besides satisfying the “color” requirement of the Left to participate in their twisted agenda.

    Harris and Biden are still stoking the fires of mass migration from Central America to the US. They want to change the voter makeup in the US permanently. Millions of Hispanic hordes showing up, all voting Democrat. Harris and Biden are drunk with power. Pelosi and Schumer are looking to change the US to a uni-party of Democrats and RINO’s to pass leftist woke legislation in perpetuity.

    This is the most stupid thing I’ve ever heard of!
    The present administration needs to get their stuff together; put priorities in order!
    Have have you illegal aliens apply for citizenship and go through the process as everyone else has in the past.
    This is a very sick administration that Biden has.
    Why doesn’t Kamala just give out her coloring books; maybe they’ll be happy with that.

    You can bet it wont be at the border.
    Destruction of our country onr day at a time. Human trafficking up. Drugs flowing in like high tide. ILLEGAL ALIENS to receive raxpayers money on top of amnesty. The list goes on how they are literally destroying our country.
    Don’t forget, get your Wuhan Chinese corona virus vaccination and wear two masks.
    Dems are called dimwits for a reason. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

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.”
