The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country.

Hair weaves from Chinese prison camps seized in New York

Stephen Rex Brown
4-5 minutes

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials in New York announced Wednesday they had seized a shipment of weaves and other beauty accessories suspected to be made out of human hair taken from people locked inside a Chinese internment camp.

The shipment of almost 13 tons of hair products worth more than $800,000 bore signs of “potential human right abuses of forced child labor and imprisonment,” the agency said in a release. The violations included “use of prison labor” and “additional situations of forced labor, including, but not limited to, excessive overtime, withholding of wages, and the restriction of movement,” according to Customs officials.

“The production of these goods constitutes a very serious human rights violation, and the detention order is intended to send a clear and direct message to all entities seeking to do business with the United States that illicit and inhumane practices will not be tolerated in U.S. supply chains,” said Brenda Smith, Executive Assistant Commissioner of the CBP Office of Trade.

Rushan Abbas, a Uighur American activist whose sister went missing in China almost two years ago and is believed to be locked in a detention camp, said women who use hair weaves should think about who might be making them.

“This is so heartbreaking for us,” she said. “I want people to think about the slavery people are experiencing today. My sister is sitting somewhere being forced to make what, hairpieces?”

News of the horrific shipment emerged one month after former National Security Advisor John Bolton revealed in a memoir that President Trump told China President Xi Jinping last year that Uighur concentration camps were “exactly the right thing to do.”

Amid a furor over that account, Trump signed the bipartisan Uighur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020, condemning “gross human rights violations of specified ethnic Muslim minority groups in the Xinjiang region in China.”

The massive shipment was made by Lop County Meixin Hair Product Co. Ltd. Customs made a similar seizure from a different Chinese company in May, though that was of synthetic hair.

Both of the exporters are in China’s far west Xinjiang region, where over the past four years the government has detained an estimated 1 million or more ethnic Turkic minorities.

The ethnic minorities are held in internment camps and prisons where they are subjected to ideological discipline, forced to denounce their religion and language and physically abused. China has long suspected the Uighurs, who are mostly Muslim, of harboring separatist tendencies because of their distinct culture, language and religion.

The items are suspected of being made with forced or prison labor, a violation of U.S. Law.

The Associated Press tried to visit Hetian Haolin Hair Accessories Co. more than a year ago during an investigation into forced labor inside the camps. But police called the cab driver taking AP journalists to the area, ordering the driver to turn back and warning that the cab’s coordinates were being tracked.

From the road, it was clear the factory — topped with “Haolin Hair Accessories” in big red letters — was ringed with barbed wire fencing and surveillance cameras, and the entrance was blocked by helmeted police. Across the street, what appeared to be an educational facility was topped with political slogans declaring “the country has power” and urging people to obey the Communist Party. It was unclear whether the factory was part of a detention center, but former detainees in other parts of Xinjiang have described being shuttled to work in fenced, guarded compounds during the day and taken back to internment camps at night.

The Chinese Ministry of Affairs has said there is no forced labor, nor detention of ethnic minorities.

Yellowstone warning: More than a HUNDRED earthquakes strike volatile super-volcano site

Yellowstone: Expert reveals 102 earthquakes recorded in June

More than a hundred earthquakes struck Yellowstone in the past month, sparking fears of a devastating eruption from the volatile super-volcano. Mike Poland, the chief scientist in charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, revealed the number of recent earthquakes in an overview of activity at Yellowstone during June. Speaking on behalf of the US Geological Survey (USGS), Mr Poland confirmed that 102 earthquakes had just struck the area.

The earthquakes were detected by the University of Utah seismograph stations which are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Yellowstone seismic network.

Earthquakes are closely monitored at Yellowstone because the super-volcano at the site is feared by many to be overdue another cataclysmic eruption that could wipe out the United States.

Yellowstone volcano's last big eruptions went off about 640,000, 1.2 million and 2.1 million years ago.

When Yellowstone last erupted - an event known as the Lava Creek eruption - the supervolcano covered an estimated an estimated 2,900 square miles (7,500 square km) with ash and fallout.

Roberts Joins Liberals in 5-4 Ruling, Says Requiring Abortionists to Obtain Hospital Admission Rights Is ‘Burden on Access to Abortion’

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts sided with his liberal colleagues on Monday to strike down a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital in the event that a mother is injured in the process of having her unborn baby killed. Roberts, nominated to the court by then-President George W. Bush, opined that the rule “imposes an undue burden on access to abortion.” Many Christians believe that they must vote Republican in order to put “conservative” justices on the bench.

Roberts joined Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan to be the deciding factor in the 5-4 decision. Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh dissented.

“The law would reduce the number of clinics from three to ‘one, or at most two,’ and the number of physicians providing abortions from five to ‘one, or at most two,’ and ‘therefore cripple women’s ability to have an abortion in Louisiana,'” Roberts wrote in a separate opinion.

“The Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons,” he said, referring to the 2016 ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. “Therefore, Louisiana’s law cannot stand under our precedents.”

Roberts had dissented in the 2016 ruling, but noted in Monday’s opinion, “I joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today, however, is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”

Louisiana Act Number 620 required abortionists to “have active admitting privileges at a hospital that is located not further than thirty miles from the location at which the abortion is performed or induced and that provides obstetrical or gynecological health care services.”

Admitting privileges are defined as being “a member in good standing of the medical staff of a hospital that is currently licensed by the Department [of Health and Hospitals], with the ability to admit a patient and to provide diagnostic and surgical services to such patient.”

Read the bill in full here.

Justice Breyer wrote the main opinion for the court, similarly stating, “Some hospitals expressly bar anyone with privileges from performing abortions. Others are unwilling to extend privileges to abortion providers as a matter of discretion. … Still other hospitals have requirements that abortion providers cannot satisfy because of the hostility they face in Louisiana.”

And with fewer abortion facilities due to the inability to meet the admission privileges requirement, “it would still leave thousands of Louisiana women with no practical means of obtaining a safe, legal abortion, and it would not meaningfully address the health risks associated with crowding and delay for those able to secure an appointment with one of the state’s two remaining providers.”

Breyer and the majority consequently agreed with a lower court ruling that “Louisiana’s law poses a ‘substantial obstacle’ to women seeking an abortion; its determination that the law offers no significant health-related benefits; and its determination that the law consequently imposes an ‘undue burden’ on a woman’s constitutional right to choose to have an abortion.”

Read the ruling, along with the concurrences and dissents, in full here.

As previously reported, Roberts also joined the liberal justices of the court to uphold Obamacare in 2012, disappointing a number of conservatives who thought he would save the country from the requirements in the Affordable Care Act. He recently sided with his liberal colleagues to reject a challenge to California’s limits on church attendance during the coronavirus pandemic.

In 2005, during a discussion about the separation of church and state with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Roberts, a Roman Catholic, explained, “[M]y faith and my religious beliefs do not play a role in judging. When it comes to judging, I look to the law books and always have. I don’t look to the Bible or any other religious source.”

2 Chronicles 19:6 reads, “Take heed what ye do, for ye judge not for man but for the Lord, who is with you in the judgment.”

Psalm 2:10-12 exhorts, “Be wise now therefore, O ye kings. Be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him.”

Planned Parenthood Partner: Some Aborted Babies Are Intact Before Dissected, Some Hearts Are ‘Beating Independently’

In a new video released by the same organization that conducted an undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts, the procurement manager for Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), which services Planned Parenthood locations in southern California, acknowledged under oath that about every couple of months, an aborted baby “falls out” of his or her mother intact and she is presented with a whole child to dissect. Sometimes, she said, she can see hearts “beating independently” from babies who are not extracted intact.

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP), led by David Daleiden, released the footage on Tuesday after a court unsealed recorded testimony and documents that came out of a lawsuit that Planned Parenthood had filed against the pro-life activist.

The video shows ABR’s Perrin Larton being questioned by an attorney under a deposition, being shown footage from the undercover investigation conducted by Daleiden in which she had stated that sometimes the baby just “falls out” during an abortion, especially if the mother has had a number of children already.

The attorney asked Larton how that child then comes to her, as she would perform the procurement of the infant’s bodily “tissues” needed for resale to researchers.

“Is the entire fetus intact in the lab when the procurement technician enters the lab?” he inquired.

“Yes,” Larton responded.

“How does a tissue procurement occur in one of these situations when the entire fetus in intact in the lab?” he asked.

“We do a dissection,” Larton answered.

The attorney then asked if the dissection is to obtain the “tissues” that are on the list of those requested by researchers. Larton responded in the affirmative.

When asked if the babies don’t have a heartbeat when the procurement is conducted, she advised, “It would depend.”

“I can see hearts that are not in an intact POC (product of conception, i.e. baby) that are beating independently,” Larton outlined.

The Center for Medical Progress is concerned that Planned Parenthood and its partners might be engaging in organ harvesting of babies born alive, in violation of federal law, 18 U.S. Code 1958.

As previously reported, CMP also released a video at the end of May showing Planned Parenthood Mar Monte Chief Medical Director Dorothy Furgerson seemingly testifying under oath that the payments her organization received from partner Stem Express were directly for the baby body parts, based on their usability.

When asked whether Planned Parenthood would still be paid if a “sample” was found to be unusable, Furgerson simply answered “no.” Asked again whether Planned Parenthood Mar Monte would only be compensated if the sample was usable, she replied “yes.”

CMP noted that the admission is important because Planned Parenthood had claimed to the media and others that it was only donating the “tissue” and the funds received were not for the aborted “tissues” themselves but for general administrative “costs” associated with their transferal.

Further, the Stem Express contract with Planned Parenthood Mar Monte also expressly stated that the affiliate would be paid “$55 per POC [product of conception] determined in the clinic to be usable and $10 per maternal blood.”

“Planned Parenthood Mar Monte will invoice Stem-Ex monthly for the number of POC’s and number of maternal bloods procured by Stem-Ex,” it reads.

Invoices sent from Planned Parenthood Mar Monte to Stem Express, which were a part of the court record, show the abortion giant billing Stem Express for thousands of dollars each month.

As previously reported, following the release of Daleiden’s undercover videos in 2015, then-Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards firmly denied that the organization received compensation for aborted babies, stating in a recorded video:

“I want to be really clear: The allegation that Planned Parenthood profits in any way from tissue donation is not true. Our donation programs — like any other high-quality health care providers — follow all laws and ethical guidelines.”

Planned Parenthood also claimed that the videos had been deceptively edited, but the full versions of the recordings were freely viewable on YouTube for all who wished to watch the hours-long raw footage as well.

US Supreme Court Lets Laws Creating Buffer Zones Around Chicago, Harrisburg Abortion Facilities Stand

The U.S. Supreme Court declined on Thursday to take up challenges to rulings upholding laws in Chicago, Illinois and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania that create buffer zones around abortion facilities. The laws require those who wish to reach abortion-minded mothers to stand back at a certain distance away from the entrance to the facility, making it harder to communicate with those intent on having their unborn child murdered.

While the denial for certiorari was without explanation, the court did note that Justice Clarence Thomas was in favor of hearing the cases.

The appeals for consideration were Price v. City of Chicago and Reilly v. City of Harrisburg. Read the appeal briefs here and here.

The 2009 Chicago ordinance classifies a person who “knowingly approaches another person within eight feet of such person, unless such other person consents, for the purpose of passing a leaflet or handbill to, displaying a sign to, or engaging in oral protest, education, or counseling with such other person in the public way within a radius of 50 feet from any entrance door to a hospital, medical clinic or healthcare facility” guilty of disorderly conduct.

The 2012 Harrisburg statute states that “[n]o person or persons shall knowingly congregate, patrol, picket or demonstrate in a zone extending 20 feet from any portion of an entrance to, exit from, or driveway of a health care facility.”

Sidewalk counselors outside of facilities in these cites, who engage in leafleting and one-on-one conversation with abortion-minded women, considered the rules a violation of their First Amendment rights to speak, assemble and exercise their religion. They note that the laws make it difficult for them to effectively communicate since they must stand so far away.

The Chicago and Harrisburg ordinances were challenged in 2016, but the courts upheld both statutes. Their attorneys, the Thomas More Society and Liberty Counsel, respectively, were hoping that the U.S. Supreme Court would take the cases as provide clarity to the issue in light of past legal precedent.

“With its ‘bubble zone’ law, the City of Chicago is doing women a great disservice by denying them access to information at a critical time in their lives,” Senior Counsel Thomas Olp with the Thomas More Society said in an interview posted to the organization’s website.

“Additionally, this law is vague and over-broad and does not serve any legitimate interest of the city. Chicago has never had an issue with obstruction of access to abortion facilities,” he stated. “The abortion lobby wants people to believe that pro-life advocates who witness outside abortion clinics are aggressive and threatening. That’s just not true.”

As previously reported, the Supreme Court did rule on another abortion case this week, as Justice John Roberts sided with his liberal colleagues on Monday to strike down a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital in the event that a mother is injured in the process of having her unborn baby killed.

Roberts, nominated to the court by then-President George W. Bush, opined that the rule “imposes an undue burden on access to abortion.”

Democrats Are Using Americas Younger Generations Like Hitler Did His Nazi Youth

 Democrats Are Using America's Younger Generations Like Hitler Did His Nazi Youth: So The Carnage Across America Now Hints Of Total Destruction Ahead If We Stay On The Same Path We're On

- Their ultimate goal is to control the lives, speech, and actions of everyone

By John C. Velisek, Retired, US Navy - All News Pipeline

There are certain aspects of the ongoing Black Lives Matter/Antifa uprising that must be made evident to our country's citizens. The leftist rioters do not understand that what they are doing to destroy our country will not work. The rioting and burning of local businesses, many minorities owned, the overtaking of city property, the tearing down of statues that are a part of our history will do nothing to improve our country.

All the efforts that they feel will intimidate people will only anger those who believe in our country. No amount of indoctrinating our children in academia will keep them from understanding that there is no option for a way of life that has made America the envy of the world. They want to use our children, much like it was done in Nazi Germany.

There are similarities to the Nazi Regime of Hitler and Black lives Matter today. In Hitlers Germany, there was talk of reparations, the monies of those who earned it were taken away and given to those who fomented the revolution. Looting and the destruction of business was also a part of the Nazi regime. Morality and the moral norms that are in any civilized culture were broken down. Freedom of speech and thought were curtailed in the media and everyday discussion if they did not conform to the party line or the "struggle of the people."

Not mentioned is the struggle of the people in our inner cities with rampant violence and murders. Black Lives Matter never mentions it, the media won't cover it, and the leftists in the Democrat party ignore it. Why? It doesn't fit the narrative that they are trying to push on the American people. They can't virtue signal to defund the police if they discuss that constant murders in the significant cites run by the Democrats. They need to set a narrative where they can make law enforcement the villain, even though they coddle criminals with policies like "no bail" bond to put criminals back on the street.

The same words used by the Nazis, such as “social justice” was an integral part of the Nazi doctrine. The next step recently begun is to have the children tattle of their parents. All of these were the agenda forced on the German people as part of Nazi Germany. It is also a significant part of the plan of Black lives Matter. In essence, the final goal is intended to be to control the lives, speech, and actions of those they do not agree with in any aspect.

In today's case, those who do not agree have made it clear that with the help of the progressive socialists and media, they intend to negate those who disagree, conservatives, white, and those who still believe in religion to kneel and treat them as our overlords. They have come up with another mindless bumper slogan – “silence is violence.” It is just a way to force those of our country to blare mindless Marxist slogans to get their approval. They will continue to use mob rule to stifle anyone who may dissent or criticize the Marxist Black lives Matter and globalists who intend to rule.

This will occur because groups like Black Lives Matter intend to do the best they can to break up the nuclear family. In this country, we have an equality of opportunity and equality of effort and not equality of outcome. They want to use Marxist doctrine to nullify the rights of everyday Americans of every color and religion. A little secret is that those on social media and the progressive socialists in the Democrat party do not understand that Americans will fight for their rights.

One of those rights is the freedom of speech that will come forth in condemning their attempt to force Americans to bow to such leftists as Black Lives Matter and Antifa. Black lives Matter is nothing more than the violent army that Obama called a national army. It was founded by three Marxist agitators for the purpose of silencing any dissent that could disavow the radical socialist agenda they have enshrined as part of their attempt to demoralize and destroy the law-abiding Americans that they so despise.

Every day, Americans are starting to get fed up with the terrorism, destruction of property, and condescension of the elites trying to pull the strings of our country to force the American people into something they do not want and will not consent to in their lives.

This agenda of the progressive socialists have already led to civilians using firearms to protect the property they have worked so hard to build. In Provo, Utah, a man who was attempting to evade a swarm of these animals was shot in his car. Does it need to come to the point where everyday Americans need to leave their homes armed to protect themselves from these animals? Can they not understand that no matter how many Marxist celebrities, universities, now nothing more than Marxist Workemen’s circles, or global organizations kowtow to the virtue-signaling they require, the American people will fight back.

Are there any explanations of Black Lives Matter taking in millions of dollars and funneling through ActBlue to the progressive socialists. Is there any explanation for the $33 million funneled to BLM by the anti-American globalist George Soros to incite the violence they feel they need to transform our country into the laughingly corrupt socialist utopia that they need? The staged pre-programmed riots will not make a difference to ordinary Americans, and in the end, will create animosity and anger leading to the civil war they so desperately need. It will do nothing for the inner city groups they say they want to help. And honestly, black lives do not matter to BLM. If they did, the money they have would be used to assist the inner city, particularly the youth, to help them move forward instead of 60% of it going to the leadership and travel.

Today, the word "racist" is meaningless. It's offshoots "systemic racism," "institutional racism," and “white privilege” is nothing more than bumper stickers with no meaning used to attempt to silence those who disagree. But let’s take an honest look at who are the real racists. Antifa is nothing more than rich white liberal kids playing at revolution by using violence to silence their critics. BLM, with the support of the progressive socialist of the Democrat party plan to fulfill the totalitarian agenda of the globalists. They won’t speak of the agenda because they would have to admit that they are the racists. The media is complicit in furthering the plans to blame white America for the challenges faced in Democrat-run cities.

The rioters, with help from the media, celebrities, and academia can not explain that the party they endorse, has been responsible for the destruction of big cities that the Democrats have run for decades. They can’t explain why they have such members as Irami Osei-Frimpong, a University of Georgia teaching assistant, feels free to write that some white people may have to die before black communities are made whole. They can't explain why the party they endorse has to keep minorities weak and on the plantation for so long. They can't explain why a father, as head of the household, is a detriment to the people they claim to be helping. The party that they endorse keeps their children from freedom of choice when choosing a school. They support abortion, a procedure started by a eugenist trying to wipe out the "defective" black race and claimed backs were inferior. They endorse the party that at a convention in 1932 called the KKK “righteous and for the betterment of humanity.

The progressive socialist Democrats use "systemic racism," a platitude with no truth in reality. To further divide our country without stipulating that the systemic racism inherent in this country is part of the history of their own party. The false promises they have made over the past 50 years are damaging to the people of color they claim to support. But they virtue signal to show how they are much better than middle-class white folk who have no power to change things. Defunding the police is fine with them because the progressive socialist Democrats have their gated homes and private security. Even the Minneapolis City Council have received taxpayer funder security, but still, demand that law enforcement be disbanded. And it appears that law enforcement in that city will be replaced with a sharia/BLM contingent to keep the community safe. What is not mentioned is that it will then become a sharia-compliant city.

The BLM today shows many of the same characteristics of the KKK in the 1930s and 1940s. Both the KKK and the BLM/Antifa socialists' goals are much the same. They plan to tear America away from the God-given rights given to us in the Constitution through tactics of terror and fear. They will never realize that the terror and fear they are attempting to force on the American people will become determination and anger to stop the destruction of all that American hold dear.

The post-truth era that we find ourselves in will not end well. And the American people will rise up and demand that the intellectual and indoctrinated social activists admit that America is not on their side. The community agreement that they seek through force and violence will not change the hard-working Americans that love this country. They will soon realize that the patriots of this country will not take anymore. It is not the province of the progressive socialists, globalists, or elites who think they know better than the American people to declare community agreement of policies that the American people disagree with.

China, India standoff more than a war over rocks
8-10 minutes

As China and India square off in a Himalayan standoff after a skirmish in that killed 20 Indian troops in mid-June, it’s becoming clear to most the staredown is not chiefly about which side should control an uninhabited piece of barren mountain rock.

Indeed, observers and analysts agree that the conflict is about something bigger: strategic rivalry between Asia’s two giants and more specifically China’s desire to punish India for rejecting its multinational Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

China, it seems, is keen to send a message to India’s neighbors on who now rules the roost in the Indo-Pacific region, particularly at a juncture when India and many of its allies and partners – not the least the United States – struggle to contain Covid-19 outbreaks at home.

But while it is understandable that an increasingly assertive China wants to flex its growing muscles while the West is preoccupied with health crises, regional analysts are left to wonder why Beijing appears to be simultaneously shooting itself in the foot by antagonizing other regional countries.

Some analysts believe China is flexing its muscles, not just on the Himalayan border but also in the South China Sea and over Taiwan, as a sort of new Cold War litmus test to gauge which nations are willing to openly criticize Beijing’s more assertive posture and which remain reticent.

In this connection, however, China may get more than it bargained for in taking on India.

China’s domestic vernacular media have shied from covering the Ladakh mountain standoff in detail, though the English-language Communist Party mouthpiece The Global Times has published strong warnings to India, including one de facto threat on June 15 to conscript other regional “reliable strategic partner(s)” like Pakistan and Nepal into the dispute.

Hu Zhiyong, a supposedly independent scholar in Shanghai, was quoted in the paper as saying that “If India escalates border tensions, it could face military pressure from two or even three fronts.”

Those reports and commentaries are clearly meant for foreign audiences, especially readers in India, who have been reminded of what the paper referred to on May 25 as India’s “crushing defeat” in a 1962 high mountain border war between the two sides.

In a June 22 editorial, The Global Times wrote that “we would like to warn India’s feverish nationalists not to lead New Delhi down the wrong path, and not allow India to repeat past mistakes.”

Unlike in 1962, Beijing now not only has regional allies but, as the paper also emphasized in a June 22 editorial, China is “an industrialized country with a GDP [gross domestic product] five times that of India, it spends more on defense than India does, and most of China’s advanced weapons are manufactured domestically, but all of India’s advanced weapons are imported.”

While much of that may be true, India is not the same military ill-prepared country that it was in 1962. Indeed, more recent history shows India can stand its ground against China. The first test came when the two sides’ clashed at two mountain passes between Sikkim and Tibet in September 1967.

At that time, China’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement strikingly similar to today’s pugilistic rhetoric: “Do not misjudge the situation and repeat your mistake of 1962.”

But, according to Indian statistics which have not been disputed by independent observers or scholars, 88 Indian soldiers were killed and 163 wounded while the Chinese side suffered 340 killed and 450 wounded in the 1967 Himalayan clash.

The only serious armed incident after that was in October 1975, when Chinese troops ambushed a contingent of the paramilitary Assam Rifles in Arunachal Pradesh in the eastern Himalayas. Four riflemen were killed, but it did not escalate tensions along the volatile 3,500-kilometer frontier that separates the two sides.

In late 1986 and early 1987, thousands of Chinese and Indian troops confronted each other also in Arunachal Pradesh, but no clashes occurred. In that instance, Chinese troops were forced to retreat.

According to an Indian Army officer who was on active duty along the border at that time, then-army chief General Krishnaswamy Sundarji “wanted to show the Chinese that this was not 1962. He wanted to…demonstrate to the Chinese that it’s a different Indian Army they are facing today.”

Indeed, India has strengthened and modernized its armed forces, formed one of the world’s most extensive and sophisticated strategic external intelligence agencies, and, not least, become a nuclear power. When India has fought, it has won, including armed conflicts against neighboring Pakistan, most recently in 1999 at Kargil in Jammu and Kashmir.

With more than 1.4 million active troops and nearly a million in reserve, India now has the world’s largest standing volunteer army. India’s production of defense material declined in the 1990s, but has more recently revived, seen in $1.46 billion worth of military materiel exports in 2018-2019.

While neither side likely wants a full-blown conflict, bickering over the border will not easily be resolved. One problem is that the colonial British who once ruled India drew up several proposed borderlines separating what was once their territory from the Chinese.

One is the outer Ardagh-Johnson Line which was named after two 19th century colonial administrators and follows the border as drawn on official Indian maps today. The other is the MacCartney-MacDonald Line, named after two other British officials, which follows roughly China’s claims.

The area in dispute and which India claims, Aksai Chin, is so remote that it was not until 1957 that India discovered that China had built a highway connecting Xinjiang with Lhasa in Tibet through it. The Galwan valley, where the mid-June clash took place, was also a flashpoint during the 1962 war.

The Line of Actual (LAC) control today is to the west of the MacCartney-MacDonald Line. Another major problem, Indian negotiators say, is that while they have marked their claims precisely on official maps, China’s are more diffuse and are frequently changed.

Those shifting boundaries are keeping China’s various neighbors on edge as Beijing pushes for a new world order with itself at its center. By testing and probing borders and boundaries, from the Himalayas to the South China Sea, Beijing is gauging responses and acting accordingly to maximize its claims.

An all-out war with India is unlikely, but the dispute may escalate in other ways as China pushes its BRI forward across the region. That infrastructure aims to augment trade, which is still important between the two sides, though the Covid-19 crisis has taken a heavy toll on recent volumes.

As the border crisis started to mount in February, India’s exports to China dropped 13.7% to $1.1 billion compared with the same period in 2019, while shipments to Hong Kong declined by 62.4% to $681 million. It remains to be seen how heavily the Covid-19 crisis will affect future trade and therefore the possibility of a wider conflict.

What is certain, however, is that China is fortifying its military installations along the LAC. In the mid-June clash that killed Indian soldiers, Chinese troops reportedly used clubs wrapped in barbed wire and iron rods welded with nails in their assault.

That explains why no shots were fired and the hostilities were quickly capped. But newly built bunkers, tents and storage facilities now dot the LAC on both sides, meaning both sides are digging in for a long showdown.

Yet if China really wants to “teach India a lesson”, using military rather than crude rudimentary weapons, Beijing should know by now that any armed conflict in 2020 won’t likely proceed or end like the one it handily won in 1962.

Does Trump Sending 10,000 Troops to India Inidcate That War With China Draws Near?

I have a friend, a retired high-ranking military officer. He made it possible for me to speak with two officers serving at the Pentagon which I subsequently did. Their message did not alter my opinion of what is underway and what is ultimately coming, it enhanced what I already know to true.

California governor bans singing in church

Leftist governors across the country have taken advantage of the coronavirus lockdown procedures by banning most church assemblies – even while allowing other groups to meet. The double standard has been especially obvious in recent days as many of them openly have advocated for the masses of Black Lives Matter rioters torching cars and buildings while still maintaining that church congregations could gather in groups of no more than 10. California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s orders for the July 4th weekend are the latest move in the agenda. The Sacramento Bee reports he has announced that people who meet in church will not be allowed to sing.
