The US doesn't have to believe anything China says, but it doesn't have to pick a fight with China either

Chinese President Xi Jinping. Noel Celis - Pool/Getty Images The Trump administration has taken an assertive approach to China, seeking to rebut Beijing's propaganda and to cast its ambitions in the starkest terms.

‘Chairman Xi’ seeks only to purge and subjugate. That is his weakness | Simon Tisdall

From Tibet to Taiwan, China’s leader is intent on wielding absolute power. Instead he is fanning the flames of dissentIt’s often said that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely – but does it also induce leaders to act in foolhardy, headstrong and ultimately self-destructive ways? History, especially Chinese history, is full of examples of omnipotent rulers whose unchecked behaviour led to disaster. Xi Jinping, China’s comrade-emperor, is a modern-day case in point.

The Effects of Hong Kong’s National-Security Law Are Already Clear

Just a few weeks after China’s imposition of a new “national-security law” on Hong Kong, we can already see the law’s effects: It has emboldened the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to suppress dissent, punish activism, and create fear within the city’s democracy movement.In 1997, the United Kingdom returned Hong Kong, which it had governed for 99 years under a lease extorted from the Qing Dynasty, back to the People’s Republic of China. At the time, the PRC promised to preserve the political auton...

John Bolton's book, packed with dirt on Trump, is out tomorrow

John Bolton, challenged as to why he reserved his claims about Trump's behavior for a book deal, has a grimly convincing excuse: revealing them during his former boss's impeachment trial wouldn't have made any difference because his party controls the Senate. American voters are the only jury with the power to get dispose of him. The book, out Tuesday, is titled The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir [Amazon] and promises to be a blockbuster. It bears real dirt and was made sensational...
