Hong Kong (AFP) - China promised Thursday to take countermeasures against Britain if it presses ahead with plans to extend citizenship rights to Hong Kongers after Beijing imposed a sweeping security law on the restless financial hub.Beijing has faced a groundswell of criticism from primarily Western nations over its decision to impose a new law outlawing acts of subversion, secession, terrorism and colluding with foreign forces.Adding to concerns, Hong Kong's influential Bar Association published a new legal analysis warning that the wording of the law -- which was kept secret until Tuesday -...
Speaking at Donald Trump's rally in Arizona on Saturday, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell claimed no computers or voting machines will be used in 2022 midterm elections.
Lindell told the crowd that things have actually gotten better for Trump supporters who believe the 2020 election was stolen during the last year.
"The reason I say that is because everybody now is out there with no fear, and we all know what happened, and it's all going to get corrected, and it's been on God's timing, not our timing, and I will promise you this: There's not going to be any election done with any machines or any computers in 2022," Lindell said.
In an interview with Right Side Broadcasting Network after his speech, Lindell claimed he's preparing to launch "a replacement for the machines," which he called "paper on steroids."
"It’s the most awesome paper you've ever seen," he said. "You can’t copy it. It’s better than money."
Lindell is currently facing a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems over his false claims about the 2020 election. He has for months been promising a Supreme Court lawsuit to overturn the 2020 election results, but the complaint has never materialized.
Asked about the lawsuit on Saturday, Lindell said "it's coming," blaming the delay on state attorney generals who've "made changes."
Speaking at the rally, Lindell also claimed the media has "all of a sudden" been attacking him again "a year later."
"It's risen to a new level. You know why? Because all these great things are coming out," Lindell said, before referring to the Maricopa County election audit, which actually affirmed president Joe Biden's victory. "So they want to deflect. It's called election deflection."
Lindell also complained about DirecTV's decision to drop the pro-Trump One America News Network. But he said the real problem is conservative media.
"The biggest problem we face is not the fake news media, we're all on to them," Lindell said. "It's the conservative media, the ones that don't talk. One of them rhymes with Fox. They're disgusting. They won't talk about anything. When was the last time you saw anyone on Fox talk about the 2020 election?"

Attendees at Donald Trump's rally in Arizona are pushing some wild conspiracy theories, according to clips from the MAGA outlet Right Side Broadcasting Network.
In one clip, a rally-goer explains that California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is "a clone."
"He's a puppet for the left," the reporter from Right Side Broadcasting Network responds.
"Well he's a different level," the man says. "The real Gov. Newsom has had his military tribunal at GITMO and he's been executed."
"There you go. Thank you for your time," the reporter responds.
In another clip, a man tells Right Side Broadcasting Network: "It's my persuasion that it's clearly the apocalypse, and that the vaccine is made of aborted children. ... So it's literally the mark of the beast, and a lot of people aren't talking about it."

WATCH: Biden supporter arrested at Trump rally for being 'disruptive' and 'heckling' right-wing reporter
An apparent supporter of President Joe Biden was wrestled to the ground and handcuffed by sheriff's deputies at Donald Trump's MAGA rally in Arizona on Saturday.
In a clip from Right Side Broadcasting Network, the MAGA outlet covering the rally, a reporter is shown interrupting an interview he was doing about "Trump coins" to cover the woman's arrest.
"They're actually kicking out the girl, that protester that earlier came by and heckled us," the reporter said, before racing over to the scene.
"This right here!" the reporter said, pointing dramatically at the woman while standing next to her lying face first on the ground beneath two deputies. "This right here is what happens when you come and you become disruptive!"
"I saw exactly what she was doing," the reporter added. "And of course this is what she wants in a way."
As the deputies led the woman away, people in the crowd could be heard yelling "Let's go, Brandon" and "Get out of here, communist!"
