5,000-Page Funding Bill Including COVID Relief Also Has Section Detailing Reincarnation of Dalai Lama
Newsweak ^ | 12.21.20 | JASON LEMON

The 5,593-page government funding bill that includes the COVID-19 stimulus legislation also includes a section outlining the reincarnation and succession of the Dalai Lama.

The legislation includes some notable sections that are not directly related to government funding or the pandemic.

Section 342 of the bill outlines a "statement of policy regarding the succession or reincarnation of the Dalai Lama." Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, currently resides in exile in India after escaping from Tibet in 1959 amid a revolt against Chinese governance. Tibet was occupied by China in 1951 and incorporated as part of the East Asian nation.

This bill is just like the TARP bailout. It is prize money for the Presidential election, and written to give Trump a reason to veto it.

It is a jab at China who is trying to interfere with the independence of Tibet. Its not stupid or crazy, its 4D chess.

And the purpose of including a political statement regarding another countries religious practices is?...

I have heard that China made it illegal for the Dalai Lama to reincarnate, so if there is another one after this one he could be arrested.

I don't see a section 342 in the bill. Also searching the bill for Dalai, Lama or reincarnation doesn't yield any results. I also don't see any search results for Pakistan or gender, which was claimed by another article. (1 reference to gender but not in regard to gender studies). Text of Covid Relief bill

This Bill is 99% non-coronavirus -related.

That's news? China interfered with the independence of Tibet in 1950. Seventy years ago. Meaningful Tibetan autonomy ended in 1959.

It’s also very frustrating.

How is Newsweek publishing false stories like that?

These fake articles are camouflaging the legitimate issues.

According to the text I just received from the Trump campaign...he just vetoed the Covid bill.
