Trump Television Address: The Border Crisis has inten

January 9, according to a comprehensive report, at 8 p.m. local time (10 a.m. Beijing time) on 9 p.m., President Trump delivered a national television address on border security at the

Oval Office of the White House. In his speech, he pointed out that the humanitarian and security crisis on the southern border of th

e United States is intensifying. But he did not declare a state of emergency. Trump also blamed the Democratic Party for part of the shutdown of the U.S. government.

The Border Crisis Accelerated

In his speech, Trump first said that the humanitarian and security crises along the southern border were intensifying. He said the immigration problem was “a crisis of the soul, a crisis of the soul”.

He also pointed out that the United States could no longer tolerate illegal immigration. “We don’t have room for them anymore. We can’t send them back to their country right away,” Trump said.

“All Americans are hurt by uncontrolled illegal immigration,” Trump said. Illegal immigration strains public resources and reduces employment and wages.

This is Trump’s first speech in the Oval Office since he took office in January 2017. Major American television media, including ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News and NBC, agreed to broadcast the speech.

In his speech, Trump also shifted the responsibility of closing the government for 18 days to Democrats. He said that if his political opponents gave in to his demands for border funds, the problem could easily be solved.

“There is only one reason for the closure of the government: the Democratic Party will not fund border security,” Trump said in the Oval Office. Democrats expressed support for strengthening border security measures such as technology, but refused to support the establishment of border barriers.

Trump said he would resume talks with Democrats on the 9th. “This situation can be resolved in 45 minutes of meetings,” he said. “I’ve invited congressional leaders to come to the White House tomorrow to finish the job.”

No State of Emergency was declared

In addition, because Trump had previously said that he would not rule out building the wall by declaring a state of emergency, bypassing direct funding from Congress. Therefore, whether Trump’s speech will declare a state of emergency has become the focus of attention. However, Trump did not declare a state of emergency in his national television address.

Speaking in the Oval Office, the President described the border issue as a crisis and condemned the crimes committed by illegal immigrants. But he did not declare the incident a state of emergency, although it might allow him to fund the border wall he promised without congressional approval.

Trump has publicly considered such a move in the past few days, and the Office of the White House Legal Adviser is still assessing its legitimacy.

On the contrary, Trump said he would continue negotiations with Democrats at the 9 th meeting.

On the last day of 2018, the big satellite TV’s New Year’s

On the last day of 2018, the big satellite TV’s New Year’s Eve is a contest. Everyone

was waiting for the New Year bell to ring. This time, Zhang Huimei also appeared at the Beijing Satellite TV New Year Party. She used the song “Three Days and Three

Nights” to turn the show around. Zhang Huimei, dressed in black, stepped on 20 meters to distribute knee-length boots. She sang and danced. The whole person was

full of atmosphere and the atmosphere was super high. But you find that it seems that Zhang Huimei is getting fatter again! uuuuuuuuuuu

As a generation queen, Zhang Huimei has not only achieved great success in singing, but also has no influence under Wang Fei. She herself has a lot of songs that have

been sung all the time, and her influence and achievements in music are obvious to all. However, in the past few years, suddenly one day, when Zhang Huimei appeared

in front of you, she suddenly became fat, and was very fat. The image of the past is totally invisible. And later, this matter has been discussed by everyone. At the New

Year’s Eve party just past, they all said that Zhang Huimei was fat, and this enthusiastic netizen is right about true love.

At this New Year’s Eve party, the appearance of A Mei and her more obese figure once again plunged her into another round of discussion. Everyone was saying, “Did

Zhang Huimei let herself go?” “Why are you fat again”, “Is this weight a ton or a little fat?” And many media reports are saying that Amy is a little fat. All kinds of

languages have appeared, and everyone is concerned about this problem and can not get out of it.

In fact, everyone familiar with Amy knows that when Amy is still very thin and in good shape. In an interview, she said that one day she would gain weight, and there

was a great possibility. This obesity is a family inheritance, a gene from the mother’s side. Because in middle age, my mother and sister are fat. Sure enough, her words came true.

So when everyone questioned Zhang Huimei’s weight, Xiaobian also wanted to have a word to say, so take a netizen’s words to sum up.

“Can a self-disciplined person like Zhang Huimei not control her weight well? She is

the only female singer in Chinese who has been making progress, constantly catering to the current needs, changing her singing style, trying different singing methods

and controlling well, and can also dance.

This is what a netizen said. It’s not that Amy let herself go. Her obesity is also a genetic factor in her family. She’s 46 years old this year, too. It’s true that there are

such typhoons and the strength of singing and dancing on the stage. All her achievements are not innate, but depend on how

hard she works and how much she

pays. I believe she knows better all the way.

We need such female singers and wish Amy

better and better in 2019. Did you say so?

Yü-ts’un drooped his head for a considerable time.What is there

Yü-ts’un drooped his head for a considerable time.

“What is there in your idea to be done?” he at length inquired.

“Your servant,” responded the Retainer, “has already devised a most excellent plan. It’s this: To-morrow, when your Lordship sits in court, you should,

merely for form’s sake, make much ado, by despatching letters and issuing warrants for the arrest of the culprits. The murderer will naturally not be

forthcoming; and as the plaintiffs will be strong in their displeasure, you will of course have some members of the clan of the Hsüeh family, together with a few

servants and others, taken into custody, and examined under torture, when your servant will be behind the scenes to bring matters to a settlement, by bidding

them report that the victim had succumbed to a sudden ailment, and by urging the whole number of the kindred, as well as the headmen of the place, to hand in a declaration to that effect. Your Worship can aver that you understand perfectly

how to write charms in dust, and conjure the spirit; having had an altar, covered with dust, placed in the court, you should bid the military and people to come and

look on to their heart’s content. Your Worship can give out that the divining spirit has declared: ‘that the deceased, Feng Yüan, and Hsüeh P’an had been enemies

in a former life, that having now met in the narrow road, their destinies were consummated; that Hsüeh P’an has, by this time, contracted some indescribable

That as the calamity had originated entirely from the action of the kidnapper, exclusive of dealing with the kidnapper according to law, the rest need not be

interfered with, and so on. Your servant will be in the background to speak to the kidnapper and urge him to make a full confession;

and when people find that the response of the divining spirit harmonizes

with the statements of the kidnapper,

they will, as a matter of course,

entertain no suspicion.

“How could I possibly know?” answered Yü-ts’un. “And yet,”

“How could I possibly know?” answered Yü-ts’un.

 

“And yet,” remarked the Retainer, as he laughed coldly, “this is a person to whom you are indebted for great obligations; for she is no one else than the daughter of Mr. Chen, who lived next door to the Hu Lu temple. Her infant name is ‘Ying Lien.’”

“What! is it really she?” exclaimed Yü-ts’un full of surprise. “I heard that she had been kidnapped, ever since she was five years old; but has she only been sold recently?”

“Kidnappers of this kind,” continued the Retainer, “only abduct infant girls, whom they bring up till they reach the age of twelve or thirteen, when they take them into strange districts and dispose of them through their agents. In days gone by,

we used daily to coax this girl, Ying Lien, to romp with us, so that we got to be exceedingly friendly. Hence it is that though, with the lapse of seven or eight years, her mien has assumed a more surpassingly lovely appearance,

her general features have, on the other hand, undergone no change; and this is why I can recognise her. Besides, in the centre of her two eyebrows, she had a spot, of the size of a grain of rice, of carnation colour,

which she has had ever since she was born into the world. This kidnapper, it also happened, rented my house to live in; and on a certain day, on which the kidnapper was not at home, I even set her a few questions. She said,

‘that the kidnapper had so beaten her, that she felt intimidated, and couldn’t on any account, venture to speak out; simply averring that the kidnapper was her own father, and that, as he had no funds to repay his debts, he had consequently disposed of her by sale!’ I tried time after time to induce her to answer me,

but she again gave way to tears and added no more than: ‘I don’t really remember anything of my youth.’ Of this, anyhow, there can be no doubt;

on a certain day the young man Feng and the kidnapper met, said the money was paid down; but as the kidnapper happened to be intoxicated, Ying Lien exclaimed, as she sighed: ‘My punishment has this day been consummated!’ Later on again, when she heard that young Feng would, after three days, have her taken

over to his house, she once more underwent a change and put on such a sorrowful look that, unable to brook the sight of it, I waited till the kidnapper went out, when I again told my wife to go and cheer her by representing to

her that this Mr. Feng’s fixed purpose to wait for a propitious day, on which to come and take her over, was ample proof that he would not look upon her as a servant-girl. ‘Furthermore,’ (explained my wife to her), ‘he is a sort of

person exceedingly given to fast habits, and has at home ample means to live upon, so that if, besides, with his extreme aversion to women, he actually purchases you now, at a fancy price, you should be able to guess the issue,

without any explanation. You have to bear suspense only for two or three days,

and what need is there to be sorrowful and dejected?’

After these assurances,

she became somewhat composed,

flattering herself that she would from henceforth have a home of her own.

“These four families,” explained the Retainer, “are all interlaced

“These four families,” explained the Retainer, “are all interlaced by ties of relationship, so that if you offend one, you offend all; if you honour one, you

honour all. For support and protection, they all have those to take care of their interests! Now this Hsüeh, who is charged with homicide, is indeed the Hsüeh

implied by ‘in a plenteous year, (Hsüeh,) snow, is very plentiful.’ In fact, not only has he these three families to rely upon, but his (father’s) old friends, and his own

relatives and friends are both to be found in the capital, as well as abroad in the provinces; and they are, what is more, not few in number. Who is it then that your Worship purposes having arrested?”

When Yü-ts’un had heard these remarks, he forthwith put on a smile and inquired of the Retainer, “If what you say be true, how is then this lawsuit to be settled?

Are you also perchance well aware of the place of retreat of this homicide?”

“I don’t deceive your Worship,” the Retainer ventured smiling, “when I say that not only do I know the hiding-place of this homicide, but that I also am acquainted with the man who kidnapped and sold the girl; I likewise knew full well the poor

devil and buyer, now deceased. But wait, and I’ll tell your worship all, with full details. This person, who succumbed to the assault, was the son of a minor gentry. His name was Feng Yüan. His father and mother are both deceased, and he has likewise no brothers. He looked after some scanty property in order to eke

out a living. His age was eighteen or nineteen; and he had a strong penchant for men’s, and not much for women’s society. But this was too the retribution (for sins committed) in a previous existence! for coming, by a strange coincidence, in the

way of this kidnapper, who was selling the maid, he straightway at a glance fell in love with this girl, and made up his mind to purchase her and make her his

second wife; entering an oath not to associate with any male friends, nor even to marry another girl. And so much in earnest was he in this matter that he had to wait until after the third day before she could enter his household (so as to make

the necessary preparations for the marriage). But who would have foreseen the

issue? This kidnapper quietly disposed of her again by sale to the Hsüeh family; his intention being to pocket the price-money from both parties, and effect his escape. Contrary to his calculations, he couldn’t after all run away in time, and the two buyers laid hold of him and beat him, till he was half dead; but neither of them would take his coin back, each insisting upon the possession of the girl. But do

you think that young gentleman, Mr. Hsüeh, would yield his claim to her person? Why, he at once summoned his servants and bade them have recourse to force; and, taking this young man Feng, they assailed him till they made mincemeat of

him. He was then carried back to his home, where he finally died after the expiry of three days. This young Mr. Hsüeh had previously chosen a day, on which he

meant to set out for the capital, and though he had beaten the young man Feng to death, and carried off the girl, he nevertheless behaved in the manner of a man who had had no concern in the affair. And all he gave his mind to was to take his family and go along on his way; but not in any wise in order to evade (the consequences) of this (occurrence). This case of homicide, (he looked upon) as a most trivial and insignificant matter,

which, (he thought),

his brother and servants, who were on the spot,

would be enough to settle. But, however, enough of this person.

Now does your worship know who this girl is who was sold?”

Yü-ts’un had had no idea that it was he. Hastily taking his hand in his, he smilingly observed, “You are, indeed, an old acquaintance!” and then pressed him to take a seat, so as to have a chat with more ease, but the Retainer would not presume to sit down.

“Friendships,” Yü-ts’un remarked, putting on a smiling expression, “contracted in poor circumstances should not be forgotten! This is a private room; so that if you sat down, what would it matter?”

The Retainer thereupon craved permission to take a seat, and sat down gingerly, all awry.

“Why did you, a short while back,” Yü-ts’un inquired, “not allow me to issue the warrants?”

“Your illustrious office,” replied the Retainer, “has brought your worship here, and is it likely you have not transcribed some philactery of your post in this province!”

“What is an office-philactery?” asked Yü-ts’un with alacrity.

“Now-a-days,” explained the Retainer, “those who become local officers provide themselves invariably with a secret list, in which are entered the names and surnames of the most influential and affluent gentry of note in the province.

This is in vogue in every province. Should inadvertently, at any moment, one give umbrage to persons of this status, why, not only office, but I fear even one’s life,

it would be difficult to preserve. That’s why these lists are called office-philacteries. This Hsüeh family, just a while back spoken of, how could your worship presume to provoke? This case in question affords no difficulties whatever in the way of a settlement; but the prefects, who have held office before you, have all,

by doing violence to the feelings and good name of these people, come to the end they did.”

As he uttered these words, he produced, from inside a purse which he had handy, a transcribed office-philactery, which he handed over to Yü-ts’un; who upon perusal, found it full of trite and unpolished expressions of public opinion, with regard to the leading clans and notable official families in that particular district. They ran as follows:

The “Chia” family is not “chia,” a myth; white jade form the Halls; gold compose their horses! The “A Fang” Palace is three hundred li in extent, but is no fit residence for a “Shih” of Chin Ling. The eastern seas lack white jade beds, and the “Lung Wang,” king of the Dragons, has come to ask for one of the Chin Ling Wang, (Mr. Wang of Chin Ling.) In a plenteous year, snow, (Hsüeh,) is very plentiful; their pearls and gems are like sand, their gold like iron.

Scarcely had Yü-ts’un done reading, when suddenly was heard the announcement, communicated by the beating of a gong,

that Mr. Wang had come to pay his respects.

Yü-ts’un hastily adjusted his official clothes and hat,

and went out of the room to greet and receive the visitor.

Returning after a short while he proceeded to question the Retainer (about what he had been perusing.)

“Miss Lin,” interposed Ying Ko smirkingly, “has been here in an

“Miss Lin,” interposed Ying Ko smirkingly, “has been here in an awful state of mind! She has cried so to herself, that her eyes were

flooded, as soon as she dried her tears. ‘It’s only to-day that I’ve come,’ she said,

‘and I’ve already been the cause of the outbreak of your young master’s failing.

Now had he broken that jade, as he hurled it on the ground, wouldn’t it have been my fault?

Hence it was that she was so wounded at heart, that I had all the trouble in the world, before I could appease her.”

“Desist at once, Miss! Don’t go on like this,” Hsi Jen advised her; “there will, I fear, in the future, happen things far more strange and ridiculous than this;

and if you allow yourself to be wounded and affected to such a degree by a conduct such as his, you will, I apprehend,

suffer endless wounds and anguish; so be quick and dispel this over-sensitive nature!”

“What you sisters advise me,” replied Tai-yü, “I shall bear in mind, and it will be all right.”

They had another chat, which lasted for some time, before they at length retired to rest for the night.

The next day, (she and her cousins) got up at an early hour and went over to pay their respects to dowager lady Chia, after which upon coming to madame Wang’s apartments,

they happened to find madame Wang and Hsi-feng together, opening the letters which had arrived from Chin Ling.

There were also in the room two married women, who had been sent from madame Wang’s elder brother’s wife’s house to deliver a message.

Tai-yü was, it is true, not aware of what was up, but T’an Ch’un and the others knew that they were discussing the son of her mother’s sister,

married in the Hsüeh family, in the city of Chin Ling, a cousin of theirs, Hsüeh P’an, who relying upon his wealth and influence had,

by assaulting a man, committed homicide, and who was now to be tried in the court of the Ying T’ien Prefecture.

Her maternal uncle, Wang Tzu-t’eng, had now, on the receipt of the tidings, despatched messengers

to bring over the news to the

Chia family. But the next chapter will explain what was the

ultimate issue of the wish entertained in this mansion

to send for the Hsüeh family to come to the capital.
