It was inevitable. President Trump has signed the groundbreaking legislation which threatens sanctions and prevents certain types of crowd control equipment from being shipped to Hong Kong in response to reports of human rights violations committed by the pro-Beijing government. The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 was unanimously passed in the House and Senate.
China demanded the President veto the bill, but it wouldn’t have made a difference as the veto would have been overturned by an easy super-majority.
BREAKING: President Donald Trump has signed into law the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019
— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) November 27, 2019
This comes on the heels of an historic vote in Hong Kong that gave pro-Democracy leaders a huge majority in the District Councils. But Beijing still pulls the strings of the actual power base in the semi-autonomous city, raising questions about how they will address the ongoing protests that have crippled Asia’s economic center for 10 months.
“Today, I have signed into law S. 1838, the ‘Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019,'” the president said in a statement released by the White House.
With previous progress reported to pull back the reins on the trade war between the United States and China, this latest development has many looking to Beijing to see how they will react. The communist nation has kept the various issues with the United States compartmentalized, but this move may seep into trade talks.
Regardless of how China responds, this was a necessary move from Washington DC. Human rights violations have been escalating. China must be made aware that we will not sit back and let them persecute their own people.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
