    Hong Kong leader may delay extradition bill as Biden warns 'world is watching'

    Carrie Lam expected to speak on Saturday afternoon for first time since protest crisis erupted in earnest

    Hong Kong’s leader, Carrie Lam, plans to delay efforts to pass a controversial new extradition law, local media reported, as US presidential hopeful Joe Biden praised protesters and warned that the “world is watching”.

    Media outlets, including the South China Morning Post, public broadcaster Radio Television Hong Kong and pro-Beijing Sing Tao newspaper, reported that Lam will hold a press conference to announce her plans on Saturday afternoon.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...protests-china
    Briefly- Carrie Lam is under the sway of mainland China. The law she has been instructed to pass would enable the Chinese to extradite Hong Kong citizens to China for trial. This is contrary to the agreement between China and the British when Hong Kong was handed back to China in 1997. There have been huge street demos in protest .
    Biden has done well to speak out. Republicans should either back him or speak out themselves.

    Yeah well Biden and "the boys" (his and the Kerry kid) have personal business deals with China right now to be concerned with.
    Calling an illegal alien an undocumented immigrant is like calling a drug dealer an unlicensed pharmacist.

    What does this have to do with the problems in Hong Kong ? Is it just a mud-slinging sortie ?

    Obviously I was referring to Biden and his financial deals in China for the past few years. I'm sure he
    doesn't want anything to interfere with that.

    See. When you can't answer a simple question, you start talking about something else.

    What is sad is she has no answer......

    Here is an issue Americans should agree on, something we all believe in & yet she can only be partisan.. clearly one of the things that is seriously wrong in America.......

    Hating your neighbor is good cause you like different political teams.....

    It is really sad that some in our country have more trust & respect for foreign adversarial leaders than our own loyal opposition.

    I agree.
    I am of the opinion that America is under attack. And Americans are completely oblivious to this. One tactic of our Global Opponents is to spread 'division' (as in 'Divide and Conquer') in America.

    Sadly true, some ppl trust foreign adversarial leaders more than the loyal opposition @ home..

    America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

    The sock cuckers of the GOP and their extremely dumbass base are getting the job done.

    In my opinion, it's our Global Competitors that are doing a good job of spreading confusion and disinformation within our Society.

    And exactly who is aiding and abetting their agenda? It's not Bernie Sanders or any of the true Progressives. The quote I posted stands. The destruction comes from within.

    "The destruction comes from within."
    I'm in agreement with you. I've never seen this 'Hate' between Americans before. It's not just the Right, I've seen this on the Left too with the PC Fascists.
    Progressives I know promote a 'Brotherhood/Sisterhood' attitude.

    The USA has lost the goodwill of the world. A great deal of the antipathy is due to blanket support for Izraeli criminality. It undermines the world's trust in the United Nations and, particularly, the machinations of the Security Council.
    Jewish privilege has to end and everybody must be treated equally and in accordance with the law. What's so difficult ?

    A situation such as exists in Hong Kong- and I believe that the government has just conceded that the protesters have point- is, as Bill states, an opportunity for bipartisanship. War on Iran for the sake of Izrael is NOT.
