They forget that they live on islands and China just got closer. Hawaii is approximately 2400 miles from the US mainland.
The United States on Monday cautioned Pacific Islands nations against assistance from Chinese security forces after Reuters reported that Chinese police are working in the remote atoll nation of Kiribati, a neighbor of Hawaii. Kiribati's acting police commissioner Eeri Aritiera told Reuters last week uniformed Chinese officers were working with police in community policing and a crime database program. Kiribati is a nation of 115,000 people whose closest island is 2,160 km (1,340 miles) south of Honolulu, and the news comes as Beijing renews a push to expand security ties in the Pacific Islands in an intensifying rivalry with the United States. Asked to comment on the Reuters report, a spokesperson for the U.S. State Department responded using the abbreviation of the People's Republic of China: "We do not believe importing security forces from the PRC will help any Pacific Island country.  Instead, doing so risks fueling regional and international tensions."


The official added that Washington did not tolerate China's "transnational repression efforts," including its attempts to establish police stations around the world. "We are concerned about the potential implications security agreements and security-related cyber cooperation with the PRC may have for any Pacific Island nation's autonomy," the spokesperson said. Kiribati is considered strategic not only given its relative proximity to Hawaii, but because it has one of world's biggest exclusive economic zones, covering more than 3.5 million square km (1.35 million square miles) of the Pacific. It hosts a Japanese satellite tracking station and China has announced plans to rebuild a World War Two U.S. military airstrip on Kiribati's Kanton Island, prompting U.S. concern. The United States countered with a pledge in October to upgrade the wharf on Kanton island, a former U.S. military base, and said it wants to open an embassy in Kiribati. Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz issued a statement on Tuesday referring to last week's Reuters article, saying reporting of China's growing influence across Pacific Island nations, including Kiribati, underscored the need for the United States to continue strengthening its partnerships in the region.

He said it showed the need to "urgently" pass new economic assistance funding for three other strategic Pacific Island states, the Marshall Islands. Micronesia and Palau, which has been held up by budget battles in the U.S. Congress. "To build enduring trust with the people of the Pacific Islands, we need to redouble our efforts to support economic development, help meet infrastructure needs, bolster public health capacity, and more," Schatz said. China has not responded to a Reuters request for comment on the role of its police in Kiribati, but in a January social media post its embassy named the head of the "Chinese police station" there. Kiribati's acting police commissioner, Aritiera, said Kiribati had requested China's policing assistance in 2022 but there was no Chinese police station. Up to a dozen uniformed Chinese police arrived last year on a six-month rotation.

A Chinese embassy source confirmed the uniformed officers were working in Kiribati but also said China had not established a police station. China's efforts to strike a region-wide security and trade deal in the region, where it is a major infrastructure lender, were rejected by the Pacific Islands Forum in 2022. However, Chinese police have deployed in the Solomon Islands since 2022 after a secret security pact criticized by Washington and Canberra as undermining regional stability. Papua New Guinea, the biggest Pacific Island nation, said this month it would not accept a Chinese offer of police assistance and surveillance technology, after news it was negotiating a policing deal with China prompted criticism from the United States and Australia.

I agree. Ignoring the potential dangers is how history repeats itself. I don’t intend to end up in a concentration camp. So biden and company can take a flying leap.

My peoples, other than the White ones, already ended up in concentration camps. For one of them, we call them, "reservations". For the other, we called them, "plantations".

As I've pointed out before, anyone who supports gun control supports racism and White supremacy, pure and simple.

Hatred and possible rounding up of people into concentration camps isn’t exclusive to racial minorities. Among the first rounded up were members of the LGBTQ communities followed my forced sterilization. As a diverse community we should remember we are all in danger and yes some among us are in more than one of these communities and also have family members in others as well. Unity of purpose should solidify us all and protect us all, keep yourselves armed.

Indeed, all the more reason to oppose Hawaii's ridiculous and stupid gun control and all the more reason to support Constitutional Carry, nation-wide. And that means anything the police can have. Alan Turing, the great computer scientist on whose work every last computer running today, including all those smartphones, is based, underwent persecution...by the British authorities. That's right, the legal authorities did that to him. Just like the legal authorities here did that to us.

And this fact pops the bubble that the 2A is only for hunting and sport. Bull-oney. It's about defense against tyranny, governmental or otherwise. The Founding Fathers knew what they were doing when they put the 2A in there, right after the 1A. It was that important.
