Frank Gaffney on the Southern Border, China, Hong Kong, and more

Center Executive Chairman Frank Gaffney joined Alex Marlow to discuss the situation along the southern border, Hong Kong and China, and more.

Gaffney explains that some parts of Mexico can now be considered a failed state, and that the most recent violent incident involving an American family could possibly be a catalyst for taking the drug war more seriously. As he explains, an all inclusive approach needs to be taken to solve this problem once and for all, and this strategy begins with finishing the wall across the United States’ southern border and placing U.S. troops to provide even more protection.

With regard to the ongoing protests in Hong Kong, Gaffney believes that the window is closing for the people of Hong Kong to accomplish what they have set out to do: gain autonomy from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). He believes that the action the Chinese government is taking in response to the protests may be part of a larger plan that involves taking action against Taiwan. Gaffney thinks the U.S. government needs to take on a larger role in Hong Kong by aiding the protestors who ultimately want a system of government comparable to that of the United States.

Gaffney also believes that a first step to weakening Beijing’s influence must be to reform the U.S. federal government’s Thrift Savings Plan, which is directly funding a regime that wants to dominate the world both economically and militarily.
