senate Bill S. 1824

Should the Secretary of State Report to Congress on How China Uses Hong Kong to Undermine the U.S.?

Argument in favor

China’s use of Hong Kong to undermine U.S. laws, including export controls and anti-extradition policies, is widely acknowledged by the international community. However, the extent to which China uses Hong Kong to achieve its ends isn’t sufficiently understood, and this bill rectifies this problem.

Collecting intel and monitoring progress of US interests with regard to China’s actions generally are warranted. Central collection, consolidation and reporting is warranted- and I would be surprised this information is not already being collected. Hong Kong has a ‘contract’ with China regarding it’s political processes which, if infringed upon could have serious impact of Southeast Asian banking and world trade. China’s history of unfair practices and their impact on American interests should be monitored and considered by appropriate congressional committees.

Yes, and explain why Trump told China he would not interfere with what was going on in Hong Kong in exchange for dirt on Biden and Warren.

By all means - I’d love to know when the US starting supporting Xi over the interests of freedom fighters in Hong Kong.

Argument opposed

Given the current tensions surrounding the China-Hong Kong extradition bill, now isn’t the right time for Congress to debate, much less enact, this bill. Congress shouldn’t try to prevent China from subjecting the people of Hong Kong to China’s legal system.

I don’t trust Pompeo to investigate anything related to China or Ukraine. He is part of the problem. Ted Cruz is stepping in feces with this bill. Just a note for Republicans: you might think you can wipe the crap off, but the stench remains. (& voters remember)

Pompeo’s corrupt. He lies. Also, Ted Cruz is a lying ass. He doesn’t care about the people of Hong Kong. Republicans are desperate for anything to distract from Trump’s criminality.

Pompeo wouldn’t know what to do with the truth if it slapped him in the face and then trampled him like an elephant. So.... When it comes to Hong Kong/China... Save the darn fungus. I am dead serious save the damn fungus. A fungus believed to have healing properties – and is more valuable than gold – is becoming harder to come by in the Kunlun mountains in western China. For people in those mountains, their living depends on finding the prized fungus, cordyceps. But researchers say that rising temperatures have made the fungus harder to grow in recent years. 💣Fungi will either kill us or cure us during the 6th extinction. I would much prefer if my grandkids have the “cure” option. So, please save the fungi.

    Yes! This report would be very useful for the determination of Hong Kong's place in the World Community. However, Hong Kong may no longer be viable after Mainland China is finished with its absorption into a unified China. Taiwan is next.

    The State Dept with a lawbreaker in charge is corrupt. Pompeo needs to be thrown in jail for contempt of Congress. Once this administration is removed then we can re-examine this bill.

    Absolutely!!!! This administration isn’t behaving like a government should. It needs to start doing the work of this Nation for the good of the People instead of the good of one person, who doesn’t even know how to behave like a President, let alone the President of the United States of America. The corrupt Secretary of State needs to start behaving like the Secretary of State for the United States 🇺🇸 of America instead of Donald Trump’s WaterBoy and start doing the job. China has long been trying to find ways to subjugate Hong Kong to Communism. One of the jobs of the Sec. of St., is to keep the Prez informed of the sneaky things our Foes, like China, do to their People. “The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.” Spoken by former Vice President, Hubert Humphrey at the dedication of a building named after him in Washington DC, November 1, 1977. THAT’S how our government USED TO BE. That’s the goal we need to remember is how we WANT TO BE - AGAIN.

    Such a report can be written but it won’t be of any use. Pompeo and the rest of the Trump Administration are going to oppose the best interests of the United States anyway. It’s what they signed on for.
