When an American diplomat blunders and stutters through a series of statements and then speaks with bravado like he has a big stick but follows that up with talking in circles and “hems.. and haws”, beware that you are being fed a long line of nonsense. Listen as the US is asked by a reporter about how worried they are about China squelching free speech in countries where there are horrible crimes going unreported by journalists.
“Our purpose is not to hold back China, even if we could. We believe we are helping China, and there is an order and when that order is challenged, we will defend it, because we are determined to uphold the order,” US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken told a Geo News reporter from India who brought up concerns about China’s influence in his country and upon free speech there, to cover dramatic stories of crimes.
Citing Blinken’s Khashoggi ban, which claims to take a hardline on freedom of the press, the reporter busts Blinken for “back door diplomacy” with the CCP, who are influencing the crack down on journalists and which greatly affects his region.
“How about free speech in Pakistan, since one is a close ally and the other is not. How can you compell these countries to compell freedom of the press instead of supressing it, which has been going on lately? Some have engaged in back channels diplomacy to fix relations to fix relations, what do you say about that?” the Pakistani reporter asked.
I corresponded with Sher Mohammad Bugti, the Central Spokesman of BRP, The Baloch Republican Party from Geneva, who helped me understand the Pakistani reporter’s point of view about the crimes committed and about the fact that journalists are not allowed to report on numerous crimes like mass graves and disappearances.
BLINKEN ON THE HOT SEAT
See if you can follow US Anthony Blinken, a representative of the Democrat Joe Biden administration, taking concerned allies down a rabbit hole about their relationship with China and their intents to support American values. Watch as Blinken tap dances around the policies the Democrat government leaders have pushed while being exposed.
See Blinken as “saying one thing and doing the other,” which actually creates enormous human suffering in Pakistan, according to activists there.
Can you count the “ah… ummm” and stuttering moments? Those exact speech patterns, according to some speech experts, are a sign of deceit, nervousness.
“Sher Muhammad Bugti, the central spokesman of the Baloch Republican Party, said in a statement issued to the media that BRP stages protests demonstrations in Duisburg and Göttingen in Germany against the ongoing gross human rights violations in Balochistan.
The spokesman said that the purpose of the demonstrations was to expose the ongoing inhumane atrocities by the Pakistani military against the Baloch people.
Addressing the protest in Gottingen, BRP activists Rashed Baloch, Mahpara Karim, Shah Fawaz Baloch, and Rehmatullah Mengal said that military operations were underway in Balochistan and unarmed Baloch civilians were forcibly disappeared on a daily and houses of civilians are being set on fire after looting,” reported the Baloch Republican Party on their website.
So the group in Pakistan, the Baloch Republican Party, claims there are numerous crimes against humanity that are happening at an alarming speed by the police in Pakistan, who they believe are being aided by the Chinese Communist Party. The group claims that reporters who cover that story are being “forcibly disappeared” and killed.
Here is some background on one reporter from Baloch who was found dead under suspicious conditions while hiding in Canada:
SOFT ON CHINA
Activists believe that it is the involvement of the Chinese Communist Party that is behind these deaths, and they believe that it might be the CCP’s interest in the region’s natural resources that is motivating the CCP to agitate the area and allegedly kill the people there, who have been found in mass graves.
Bugti posted such recently:

“Media totally black out in Balochistan, killing, kidnapping is daily routine of Pakistan forces in Balochistan,” Bugti told me.
So now we understand some of the background for the question about what the USA plans to do to assist our allies, Pakistan, against a non-ally, China.
NOW WE UNDERSTAND THE QUESTION ABOUT THE BACK DOOR DIPLOMACY
Blinken talks about being bold on China. “We are focused on looking forward and not looking back, this is a complicated and consequencial relations, some of this relationship is competitive, adversarial and some is cooperative,” Blinken said. In other words, we want to be nice to them, so we can sometimes ask them for things we want.
“We want to lean in and engage with China, where the former administration pulled back. They shape the norms and make the rules, especially with technology. We are speaking out about our values, and we are making the right investments here at home in our people, ” Blinken said, telling the world that, unlike President Donald J. Trump, Biden will be weak, soft, submissive, and even helpful to the CCP.
Since Pakistan is in good company of #China and #Turkey, both are the biggest tyrants of free press and activism, Pak media has come under unprecedented pressure in recent months from rogue Army and Govt. @SherM_BRP @kakar_harsha#FailedStatePakistanhttps://t.co/22Ieiqkmxj

According to Sher Mohammad Bugti, who gave me a reaction to the video saying:
“It is true print media or electronic media whenever someone tries to expose state atrocity they are subjected to violence or even murder in broad daylight in Pakistan, Even recently there were murder attempt on famous journalist Hamid Mir of Geo News by ISI only because he was exposing Pakistani army and Human right violation in Balochistan.
Many more have been either murdered or disappeared by Pakistan state; In the same way, the Baloch nation has been suppressed for many years just for asking the fundamental right, Balochistan has been turned in into mass graveyard of Baloch Missing Person Pakistan authority have been violating human daily with impunity.
And not even single country take notice of human right violation in Balochistan. Those who speak for the rights are tortured, killed, or forcibly disappeared by Pakistan’s forces. Be it a Journalist like @AbsarAlamHaider,@IrshadMastoi @HamidMirPAK, who was attacked for speaking against their violations, or any other human rights activists.
WHY DOES IT MATTER TO US
Biden’s weakness in dealing with China is dangerous for our allies and us. President Trump’s bold defense of American values was helpful to the world, and now the United States is not even concerned with the possibility of crimes against humanity.
