Pelosi Lands In Taiwan Amid Warnings From China

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi landed in Taipei on Tuesday, marking a significant show of support for Taiwan despite China’s threats of retaliation over the visit.

Pelosi’s stop in Taipei is the first time that a US House speaker has visited Taiwan in 25 years. Her trip comes at a low point in US-China relations and despite warnings from the Biden administration against a stop in Taiwan.

Pelosi and the congressional delegation that accompanied her said in a statement on Tuesday that the visit “honors America’s unwavering commitment to supporting Taiwan’s vibrant democracy.”

“Our discussions with Taiwan leadership will focus on reaffirming our support for our partner and on promoting our shared interests, including advancing a free and open Indo-Pacific region,” the statement said. “America’s solidarity with the 23 million people of Taiwan is more important today than ever, as the world faces a choice between autocracy and democracy.”

Pelosi is traveling with House Foreign Affairs Chairman Gregory Meeks of New York, Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Mark Takano of California and Reps. Suzan DelBene of Washington state, Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois and Andy Kim of New Jersey.
The House speaker is expected to visit Taiwan’s presidential office and parliament on Wednesday morning (local time), a senior Taiwanese official told CNN.
She will first visit the parliament before heading to the presidential office for a meeting with Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen, the official said.
Pelosi is expected to depart Taiwan later on Wednesday, according to a news release issued by the foreign ministry. The official was not authorized to speak about Pelosi’s travel plans that have not been publicized.

  1. Pelosi I agree with you. Who the hell is China to dictate to you and tell you which country you can and cannot visit? China make your move!

    • Jack has never heard the phrase, “it’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt!” China has every right to decide who can, and cannot visit China.

  2. Here is my public service action today to help my fellow St. Lucians cut through the propaganda being fed to them by corporate news media, in relation to the desperation of the US oligarchs to maintain their uni-polar control of the world’s resources through military force:

    Garland Nixon hits another one for six! His latest video is titled, “A Philosophical Discussion of the Russia/China/US Relationship” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NHv8GIy6O4

    I could very easily have titled it, “An Honest Explanation of How I Have Continually Challenged My Own Beliefs, and the Beliefs of Others.”

  3. let’s just say the day St Lucia will be frighten by another country all of you will get to understand why it’s important to have allies. BTW Pelosi did not just arrive in Taiwan uninvited. Even if we are all entitle to our opinions it would be well appreciated if most of you would go over your comments before posting them.

  4. @ if you say so,nudge, the woman landed and was accepted by the officioal government of the country. What’s the doctrine you pushing here, moron. Do you have permanent brain burn from too much smoking?

  5. This is Russia and Ukraine part 2. The US feels they can go where they want when they want and believe there are no repercussions for their actions. They think they’re untouchable

  6. She’s developed a permanent brain-freeze from too much ice-cream, so she decided to extend the “Moron Doctrine” to China’s shores!
