China's Censorship Is Creeping Into America, Blizzard And NBA Bend The Knee To Communist China. The big story trending today is that Blizzard, the company behind Hearthstone, has suspended a player and rescinded prize money over his support for the ongoing Hong Kong protests.

The news sparked outrage that Americans would have to live under the censorship of China due to market pressure with Marco Rubio issuing a statement stating just that. China uses market influence to exert cultural pressure onto other countries.

China is just the beginning.

Any U.S. news reports on Ukraine’s announcement that Uncle Joe Biden received $900,000 in payments?

Just as Congress enacts anti-discrimination laws with specific targets, so they should be extended.

Congress could pass a law saying that no employer, no business relationship can discriminate against those who publicly exercise their freeedom of speech in regards to a totalitarian foreign society.

Hey. I’ve got it. Perhaps we can get the President to read them the riot act. Tell them not to interfere in our internal affairs, our politics, sports, media, elections. Damn Red Chinks!
