China Calls Biden's Bluff, Moves Forward with Dark Plan as US Sits on the Sidelines; China Pressures ‘Inactive’ Biden to Overturn More Trump Policies, and related stories

China Calls Biden's Bluff, Moves Forward with Dark Plan as US Sits on the Sidelines:
It’s almost like China can do whatever they want under this administration.
In the latest move to tighten its increasingly strong hold on Hong Kong, China’s legislature approved a resolution to overhaul its electoral system, giving the People’s Republic the green light to establish even more control over the Special Administrative Region.
The “Patriots Governing Hong Kong” resolution passed Thursday, and will reportedly allow a Beijing-controlled panel to review and elect candidates, reducing Democratic representation in the process.
The S.A.R. was handed over to China by the United Kingdom in 1997 under a “one country, two systems” model, allowing Hong Kong its own parliament and a constitution, called the Basic Law. Now, China is rolling back those privileges and layering its tyrannical authoritarianism onto the region under the guise of unity. --->READ MORE HERE

China Pressures ‘Inactive’ Biden to Overturn More Trump Policies
China’s state-run Global Times complained Tuesday that “newly-installed U.S. President Joe Biden has made no effort to reverse those mutually destructive policies, dimming the prospect of even a certain degree of de-escalation in China-U.S. ties which are at their lowest point in decades.”
The Global Times fulminated that Biden has only refrained from “ratcheting up” Trump’s policies against Communist Party-controlled firms, but his “inaction” left the China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC) removed from the New York Stock Exchange on Monday after twenty years of trading, in accordance with an executive order former President Donald Trump issued in November.
Of course, the Global Times failed to tell its readers why CNOOC and several other Chinese companies were de-listed under the Trump executive order, and why the Biden administration took no action to stop it: because they are directly linked to the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA).
CNOOC unconvincingly claims this is just a “misunderstanding” of how the business operates, but while U.S. officials have not divulged all of the details about their suspicions of the corporation, Nikkei Asian Review noted Monday the “company and its unlisted parent have been at the center of territorial disputes in the South China Sea and East China Sea between Beijing and its neighbors regarding sovereign control over drilling rights.” --->READ MORE HERE
