Hong Kong Protestors Storm Federal Building

Hong Kong citizens are fed up with China’s attempts to control them.

China’s latest extradition proposal would undermine Hong Kong’s judicial system. The results could lead to China targeting individuals speak out against the Chinese government. Citizens have been demonstrating in the streets for weeks in response to China attempting to control the territory.

Protestors stormed the Legislative Council building and vandalized parts of it, including flags.

They continue to remain peaceful and non-violent while the police threatened to arrest protesters if they stayed within the building. Many complied, but a few are staying inside.

This movement is no longer about one bill — it’s about the autonomy of Hong Kong.

Stephanie Grisham Injured in North Korean Coverage

The White House’s new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, gets her first injuries on the job.

It didn’t take long for Grisham to get a real taste of the media frenzy. Trump and Kim Jong-un met at the Korean border to exchange pleasantries and talk for a few moments. The mainstream media piranhas scrambled to get into position for photoshoots as the leaders approached South Korean territory. Safety was the last thing on their mind.

Thankfully, Stephanie made it through the event with only a few bruises and some stories to tell.

Taliban Bomb in Kabul Impacts Over 100

Anyone who thought the Taliban wasn’t a threat anymore was proven wrong this week.

One hundred were injured in the explosion, including over 50 children. Only one was killed, but it could have been so much worse. The bomb was set off in the morning when commuter traffic is high. Afghanistan is a long way from true peace, but not even this latest act of terror is deterring either side.

Our hearts and prayers go out to those affected by this senseless violence.
