Taiwan officially known as Republic of China has been self-ruled since 1950, but China considers Taiwan part of its land that must be reunited with mainland even by force

Tsai-Ing-Wen and the Democratic Progressive Party has won a historic landslide victory in the Taiwan election. They defeated the much more Pro China rival Han Kuo-Yu and the KMT. This is a big surprise and no one would have expected this outcome a year ago.

This is a clear message to the one rule Communist Party in Beijing. The people in Taiwan rejects China`s plan for reunification with the island. It`s a remarkable turnaround for the president, whose party suffered major losses in local elections just a year ago.

I believe that the rise of the party started when Pro Democracy protesters in Hong Kong took to the streets last year. People are more awake today than only a few months ago. Months of ant-govenment protests in nearby Hong Kong boosted Wen`s campaign, and scenes of police cracking down on demonstrators appear to have galvanised younger voters.

Tsai warned that Taiwan`s democratic rights must be preserved, and the country has its own military, currency and a passport accepted in most countries. But, Taiwan does not have a seat at the United Nations, and only 15 countries officially recognise Taiwan`s democratic government. United States is not one of them.

Tsai said that the people in Taiwan reject the one country, two systems model. We respect democracy and our sovereign rights, she said. Huh, it sounds like Trump who is fighting against the globalists in Europe.

On the other side; Washington is Taiwan`s most important ally and trading partner. It will be interesting to see how far the U.S will go to defend Taiwan and what will Xi and the Communists in Beijing do in respond to Tsai Ing-Wen`s win, which gives her a second term in office? The Communists have ramped up pressure on Taiwan and cut off official communication with Tsai in the past.

Tsai Ing-Wen said peace means that China must abondon threats of force against Taiwan. She also said she hope Beijing understands that democratic Taiwan will not concede to threats. China says it will not change position that Taiwan is part of it after Tsai`s re-election.

China claims Taiwan is part of its territory under its “One China Principle”.

We now see a similar situation in Taiwan is it is in Hong Kong. One Country, two systems. Taiwan, officially the Republic of China (ROC), is a state in East Asia.

Taiwanese indigenous peoples settled the island of Taiwan around 6,000 years ago. In the 17th century, Dutch rule opened the island to mass Han immigration. After the brief Kingdom of Tungning in parts of the southern and western areas of the island, the island was annexed in 1683 by the Qing dynastry of China, and ceded to the Empire of Japan in 1895.

Following the surrender of Japan in 1945, the Republic of China, which had overthrown and succeeded the Qing in 1911, took control of Taiwan on behalf of thw World War II Allies.

The resumption of the Chinese Civil War led to the loss of the mainland to the Communist Party of China (CPP) and the flight of the ROC government to Taiwan in 1949. although the ROC government continued to claim to be the legitimate representative of China, since 1950 its effective jurisdiction has been limited to Taiwan and numerous smaller islands.

In the early 1960`s, Taiwan entered a period of rapid economic growth and industrialisation called the «Taiwan Miracle». In the late 1980`s and early 1990`s, the ROC transitioned from a one-party military dictatorship to a multi-party democracy with a semi-presidential system.

Taiwan`s export-oriented industrial economy is the 21st-largest in the world, with major contributions from steel, machinery, electronics and chemicals manufacturing. Taiwan is a developed country, ranking 15th in GDP per capita. It is ranked highly in terms of political and civil liberties, education, health care and human developments.

The political status of Taiwan remains uncertain.

The ROC is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the PRC in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. International organisations in which the PRC participates either refuses to grant membership to Taiwan or allow it to particitpate only on a non-state basis.

Taiwan is a member of the World Trade Organization, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and Asian Development Bank under various offices and institutions that function as de facto embassies and consulates.

Domesticay, the major political division is between parties fvouring eventual Chinese unification and promoting a Chinese identity contrasted with those aspiring to independence and promoting Taiwanese identity, although both sides have moderated their positions to broaden their appeal.

Taiwan officially known as Republic of China has been self-ruled since 1950, but China considers Taiwan part of its land that must be reunited with mainland even by force.

The U.S hailed Tsai`s victory as demonstration of Taiwan`s robust Democratic system. Taiwan`s president Tsai Ing-Wen secures second term in office with 57,1% of votes. The vote is seen as a choice between moving closer to China or resisting push for reunification.

Tsai Ing-Wen told the supporters “today we have defended our democracy and freedom”.

The first Democratic presidential debate was crazy and boring

Gutfeld have collected some episodes from the first Dem debates which he and his followers call crazy and boring, and thats no way to live. Sometimes you feel like the first Dem debate was some kind of a Stand-Up comedian show, but it wasnt.

Who expected to hear love weapinized? Williamson was one of the most funny of all the Dems. There are more people speaking Spanish in the U.S than in Spain itself. Speaking Spanish was also very funny. Maybe there is some kind of a Spanish collusion?

Freedom of speech is NOT a lisence to abuse – It is a responsibility!

It started the same day President Donald Trump was inaugurated. The MSM (Mainstream media) showed pictures from the day Trump was inaugurated, but it was only minutes after they opened up for ordinary people. The picture was not packed with people compared to Obama`s inauguration.

 

But people were watching the ceremony, and they aren`t stupid. They know that MSM tried to tell them something FAKE. A bad start for MSM, and this is back in January 2017. It`s a surprise to see that this witch hunt is still going on. They try to bring down Donald Trump.

There is no doubt that freedom of speech is understood to be fundamental in a democracy, and it has always been like that. It is thought that ancient Athens` democratic ideology of free speech may have emerged in the late 6th or early 5th century BC.

The values of the Roman Republic included freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Concepts of freedom of speech can be found in early human rights documents. England`s bill of Rights 1680 legally established the constitutional right of `freedom of speech in Parliament` which is still in effect.

The declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, adopted during the French Revolution in 1789, specifically affirmed freedom of speech as an inalienable right. The Declaration provides for freedom of expression in Article 11, which states that:

The free communication of ides and opinions is one of the most precious of the right of man. Every citizen may, accordingly, speak, write, and print with freedom, but shall be responsible for such abuses of this freedom as shall be defined by law.

MSM is acting like a little child. They lie and produce fake news and claim they have freedom of speech.

President Trump is attacking FAKE NEWS. Not the free press or freedom of speech.

On Thursday, more than 360 newspapers coordinated an attack on Trump. They said: Stop the war on a free press, Journalists are not the enemy and so on. 360 editors together against one man reminds me of Gang Stalking mentality which is not good at all. Trump tweeted that the «Fake News Media» is the Opposition Party.

You have freedom of speech, but shall be responsible for such abuses of this freedom.

American conservatism defend Western culture from the perceived threats posed by socialism and authoritarianism

The unemployment rate for the black people in America is at a historic low, and this is happening under President Donald Trump. The big loser in this game seems to be the Democratic Party. According to Candace Owens, the Democratic party will see a major exit by black voters leading up to the 2020 presidential election.

Candace Owens is an American conservative commentator and activist. She is known for her pro-Trump commentary, and criticism of Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Party. Conservative in the U.S is not the same as we know it in Europe and Asia. So, what is it?

First of all; the man who is best known for being conservative in the Republican Party is Ronald Reagan. He spoke from the Oval Office, outlining his plan for tax reduction in July 1981. Now, Mr Trump is doing exactly the same.

But the word conservative is often used very different from the way it is used in Europe and Asia. Following the American Revolution, Americans rejected the core ideals of European conservatism; those ideas were based on the landed aristocracy, established churches, and powerful armies.

American conservatism is a broad system of political beliefs in the United States that is characterized by respect for American traditions, republicanism, support for Judeo-Christian values, moral absolutism, and a defence of Western culture from the perceived threats posed by socialism, authoritarianism, and moral relativism.

Liberty, economic freedom, social conservatism, and promotion of Judeo-Christian ideals are core beliefs, with a particular emphasis on strengthening the free market, limiting the size and scope of government in the economy, and opposition to high taxes and government or labor union encroachment on the entrepreneur.

American conservatives consider individual liberty, within the bounds of conformity to American values, as the fundamental trait of democracy, which contrasts with modern American liberals, who generally place a greater value on equality and social justice.

American conservatism originates from republicanism, which rejected aristocratic and monarchical government based on the principles of the Declaration of Independence of 1776, which stated that

“All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

In 1789, the Constitution of United States established a Federal Republic under the rule of law. All major American political parties are based on these two documents. Conservative activists to this day occasionally dress in costumes from the Revolutionary era and celebrate revolutionary episodes such as the Boston Tea Party.

Conservative philosophy also has continuity to the classical liberal tradition of the 18th and 19th centuries, which advocated for laissez-faire economics, also called economic freedom and deregulation.

The conservative movement of the 1950`s attempted to bring together these divergent strands, stressing the need for unity to prevent the spread of “godless communism.”

Through much of the 20th century, a primary force uniting the varied strands of conservatism, and uniting conservatives with liberals and socialists, was opposition to communism, which was seen not only as an enemy of the traditional order, but also the enemy of Western freedom and democracy.

Thus it was the British Labour government, which embraced socialism, that pushed the Truman administration in 1945-1947 to take a strong stand against Soviet Communism.

In the 21th century United States has different types of conservatism, which is first of all; Christian conservatism. They are primarily interested in family values. Fiscal conservatism focuses on low taxes and restrained government spending.

Neoconservative is a modern form of conservatism that supports a more assertive, interventionist foreign policy, aimed at promoting democracy abroad. It is tolerant of an activist government at home, but is focused mostly on international affairs.

The 1980`s and beyond became known as the «Reagan Era.» Typically, conservative politics and spokesmen in the 21st century proclaim their devotion to Reagan`s ideals and policies on most social, economic and foreign policy issues.

Now, we are living in a “Trump Era.” Some say it is Populism, but I will rather call it “Trumpism.”
