Chinese forces are gathering directly across from the Kinmen Islands. Those islands are currently controlled by Taiwan, and China may be preparing a move to grab them. If China actually does such a thing, all hell could break loose. Taiwan could potentially start launching missiles at any Chinese units that try to invade the Kinmen Islands, and if that happens the Chinese would inevitably return fire. In addition, there is no way that the Biden administration would allow such a move by China to go unanswered. Earlier this year the entire world was shocked when Russian forces moved into Ukraine, and we could be right on the verge of another historic moment that changes everything.
Of course we would not be talking about this right now if Nancy Pelosi had not gone to Taiwan.
It was an incredibly foolish decision, but when Pelosi arrived on the island she was greeted like a rock star…
As Pelosi’s motorcade approached her hotel, escorted by police cars with flashing red and blue lights, scores of supporters cheered and ran toward the black vehicles with their arms outstretched and phone cameras on. The motorcade drove straight into the hotel’s parking lot.
On Tuesday night, Taiwan’s tallest building, Taipei 101, lit up with messages including: “Welcome to Taiwan”, “Speaker Pelosi” and “Taiwan (heart) USA”.
Over the past couple of days, there is one question that I keep pondering.
Why did Nancy Pelosi really go to Taiwan?
Top politicians such as Pelosi usually have very selfish motives for many of the decisions that they make.
Does Pelosi think that this trip will make her look “presidential”? Could she actually be planning a run for the presidency if Joe Biden can’t do it in 2024?
She is very close to the end of her career, and so maybe she figures that she should give it a shot before she is gone for good.
In any event, Pelosi’s stunt has absolutely infuriated the Chinese, and they are promising that there will be severe consequences for “those who play with fire”…
The Communists raged Pelosi’s visit was a “serious violation” of their sovereignty and vowed to take “all necessary measures”.
“These moves, like playing with fire, are extremely dangerous. Those who play with fire will perish by it,” said the China’s foreign ministry.
A lot of people expected the Chinese to respond militarily as soon as Pelosi arrived in Taiwan.
When that didn’t happen, China was relentlessly mocked on social media in the western world.
But that is not how these things work.
Major military operations are quite complicated, and it takes time to properly coordinate them.
So it may be days or even weeks before we learn exactly what the Chinese have planned.
Meanwhile, the Chinese have announced that there will be a series of live-fire drills in the waters off Taiwan from Thursday through Sunday…
Beijing announced six exclusion zones encircling Taiwan to facilitate live-fire military drills from Thursday to Sunday, with some of the areas crossing into the island’s territorial waters. The size and scope of the areas could set the stage for the Chinese military’s most provocative actions near Taiwan in decades.
Separately, the People’s Liberation Army said exercises could start as soon as Tuesday, leaving open the possibility of military activities around Taiwan while Pelosi was visiting. The operations include “long-range live firing in the Taiwan Strait” and “regular-guided fire testing in the eastern waters” off Taiwan from Tuesday evening, the PLA said.
And it was being reported that the office of Taiwan’s president was hit by a massive cyberattack just before Pelosi arrived…
The website of Taiwan’s presidential office went dark Tuesday due to an alleged distributed denial-of-service attack, with other government websites also impacted.
Tense moment: The attack took place hours ahead of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. The Chinese government threatened to take action to respond to the trip, and Taiwan is reportedly readying air raid shelters in anticipation of a potential Chinese attack.
It would be wonderful if the Chinese stopped there.
Unfortunately, that is not likely to happen.
In fact, it is being reported that Chinese tanks are massing “on the coast of Fujian along the Taiwan Strait”…
A furious Beijing today warned US politicians they will ‘come to no good end’ if they ‘play with fire’ over Taiwan as video emerged purportedly showing tanks lined up on beaches opposite the island.
Chilling footage shared on Chinese social network Weibo appears to show amphibious tanks on the coast of Fujian along the Taiwan Strait. Further footage shows military equipment on the move in the city of Xiamen.
And another news source has pointed out that this area is very close to the Kinmen Islands…
And chilling footage shared on Chinese social network Weibo appears to show a column of amphibious tanks reportedly massing on beaches in Fujian along the Taiwan Strait.
Other footage shows a large amount of military equipment on the move in the province, including tanks on trains and columns of vehicles gridlocking Xiamen.
The closest point between China and Taiwan is the Kinmen Islands – which are around six miles east of Xiamen.
At this point we do not know if the Kinmen Islands will be a definite target.
But we do know that commercial flights have been “abruptly canceled from airports in several cities in Fujian province”…
In the last 24 hours, commercial flights have been abruptly canceled from airports in several cities in Fujian province. These airports include Xiamen, Fuzhou and Quanzhou. Xiamen Airlines put out a statement saying that the flight cancelations were due to “regional traffic control” and did not elaborate further.
We will have to wait and see how this plays out.
But without a doubt, I fully expect the Chinese to make some sort of a major statement in the days ahead.
And the Chinese military certainly seems to be shifting into full-blown war propaganda mode…
Chinese propaganda released yesterday showed off their military as soldiers in the clips vowed to fight to the death.
“We are fully prepared for any eventuality. Fight upon order, bury every intruder, and move toward joint and successful operations,” the troops said, reports Chinese state media tabloid The Global Times.
“We are PLA soldiers, we swear to defend the motherland to the death.”
We have been warned for a long time that war with China would be coming.
I just didn’t think that it would get here quite so quickly.
Global events are starting to move very rapidly now, and I have a feeling that the months ahead will contain a lot more surprises.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!

Who’s side are you on? The communists? Even Newt and Pompeo supported Pelosi’s visit.
Check where your loyalties lie… with the U.S. or our enemies Russia and China.
As for me? I’m with the United States, and a Free Taiwan.
It was done for internal propaganda purposes.
Yes the ChiComs are armed to the teeth but they have a growing economic crisis of their own in a massive rent strike and the danger that a single successful missile strike on the Three Gourges Dam would wipe out over a third of their industrial capacity a large percentage of food production, cripple their energy grid and kill millions in a matter of hours.
Actually they supported her right to visit not the visit itself.
Run to your safe space and hide, you’re is nothing more than “FEAR MONGERING BULLSHT”
An invasion of Taiwan by China would hopefully create a stop to shipment of China’s slave-labor products to the US and the rest of the free world. This would cripple China much more significantly and create the economic collapse in China that will lead to the revolution that is 30+ years overdue there. The US would experience shortages of many factory goods yet most goods imported from China are really not that vital and would encourage factory development in the US and the rest of the world.
The Pentagon advised against this trip. I would have respected their judgment. Sending weapons to Taiwan is the best way we can support them, and that will be plenty provocative to China. A political stunt like this only stirs things up unnecessarily.
Tanks? How in the world could the Chi-coms ever hope to deploy tanks against Taiwan? Seriously, if the PLA posesses the transports necessary to mass any tactically significant number of tanks on a heavily defended island nation, then the PLA is the Giga-Alpha of standing peacetime armies. Hopefully, this is simply your typical, childish Communist posturing: “mine is bigger than yours.” Otherwise, God help the West if the PLA ever has the guts to go “on tour.”
Gold ,a very OLD Amount of Stolen WW 2 GOLD
Been on the Island of FAMOSA since 1943
Japanese stole it from every country they Invaded
This is why CHINA finally is invading
History of WW2 gold is now in fool display and I truly mean FOOLS called Donkeys think they are going to be able to remove this GOLD thats why the island is ringed now nothing will get out by SUB or flown out by a plane ,CHECK MATE
This is all just noise
It is a Media made up emergency
China is not going to invade Taiwan
In the real world it is no big deal that Pelosi went there, she has no foreign power say and she is on her way OUT
Could the long held belief that in times of war, the country rallies around the Administration be the method to her madness? Last ditch effort before the midterm elections?
Will Biden equip Taiwan like he did Ukrain?
