An explanation of the non-abating unrests in Hong Kong is : https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6_RdnVtfZPY

Hong Kong is the greatest hub for capital flow and business between Red China and the West (foremost amongst which is not too surprisingly the U.S; we do have many U.S. nationals there, at least one percent of the teeming masses.) Its economy is "slightly larger than Israel's or Ireland's[29][30][31] and its GDP per capita at purchasing power parity was the sixth highest globally in 2011, higher than the United States and the Netherlands and slightly lower than Brunei."

Imagine pulling the plug to drain off the economy of Israel or Ireland!

The totally unnecessary (yep, the colonial Brits would have done better by sipping tea and betting on the horses; when the bosses were mostly having their attention largely directed towards elsewhere for centuries, Hong Kong had grown marvelously well from a small fishing village which even came with pirates in its environs into a major cosmopolis) politico-economic scar will last for at least many decades if not longer.

Time is also running out fast because Beijing is under "terrorist" attacks just as "it was in June of 1989 in Tiananmen Square." See @18:43 a typical example of what Red China has brainwashed its people with and kept them inside of a drum.

Since Hong Kong had been under British rule ( and "benign neglect" with a high degree of autonomy; the Brits knew that they had been holding a "hot potato" and they likely felt a bit shameful { few people could choose their own parents but most can choose their own behaviors } about how they had gotten Hong Kong by fighting for the right to import opium, essentially being a nation-state dope dealer which had probably succumbed to corporate interests by doing so ) for more than one and a half centuries ( 1842-1997,) it may well take centuries to be fully integrated with mainland China. When the main part of Hong Kong was leased to the Brits, the militias of the local people living on the leased land rose to fight them to try to stay with China, unsucessfully ( though resulting in some restraints imposed on what the Brits could do on the leased land,) so China ( Peking's dynasty ) didn't fight for what it now claimed as its very own. It will probably take some time to erase the hurt and the century-long cultural drift apart ( which started about as long ago as when Mexico ceded after war as well as partly sold the American Southwest to the U.S.A. Most Americans which include Mexicans nowadays will agree with California, Arizona, Nevada, Texas, etc. having a different culture from Mexico's culture in Sonora, Chihuahua, etc.)

If the Brits knew how to sip tea and had a good time with Happy Valley, the Red Chinese should also know how to sip tea ( which ultimately caused Hong Kong to become such a mishmash of culture, place, and time via silver, opium, wars, and peace treaties ) only better and have a good time gone fishing! Just don't keep on "picking at the nose to add a salty flavor to the tea." Hong Kongers look down upon that! Salt may be at a premium inland and its production was a state-owned enterprise controlled tightly by the dynasty in Peking but Hong Kong is on the seashore of the Great West American Salty Lake which is probably catching the most sewage effluent on Earth. Mmm, Mmm, let's go fishing in our Moon-size toilet bowl. Some people can learn patience while sitting ashore pondering. Of course, being a top global hub, instead of applying boogers, Hong Kong has access to much sugar and milk for adding to the tea.

Red Fuckgina is far too impatient ( a general fault with most Leftists who believe that human societies can be rapidly transformed; I'm not a Leftist because I believe that at least forty years { it's how long Moses had led the Israelites wandering in the desert to wear away the generation which had committed the golden-cow idolatry before arriving in the Promised Land } are required to transform a human society; plunking down someone such as my Grandma to modern urban high-rise building living wasn't a good move although I respect her children's desire to "upgrade to modern comfort" their parent's living conditions; transplantation requires circumspect observations and careful deliberations and actions; Dad was correct that the language English which I had already learnt all of its 26 alphabets but no 'ö' of 'Königsberg' made the U.S.A. a better fit for us than Germany on whose manufactured Telefunken Fernsehen with which I watched the learning-to-swim scene { which was a harbinger of the struggle for survival they would shortly encounter in the Outback after their dad had been laid off and ended up as the ground-up kangaroo meat replaced by the lighter-colored feather-plucked dead bird on the chopping block } in the blue water swimming pool of the movie "Walkabout" ) and hasn't done much at all to give a plausible glorious future to the younger Hong Kongers except for chipping away Hong Kongers' rights repeatedly by not living up to the terms of the de facto treaty with the U.K. Even worse yet was the proclamation of Red Fuckgina's brutishness, asserting that the treaty was vacuous due to the power of the newly risen strong New China. Of course, there is indeed one country that can truly lay claim to that but it's not the New China. Fortunately for all countries, it's not as arbitrary as Red Fuckgina yet. The fight goes on and the "Constitutional Anarchy" show should arrive on the global stage this week.

Frankly speaking, studying history pretty much made me doze off in my youth. I suppose that's probably true for many younger Hong Kong people, too. The subject had far too many dates of significant events to be remembered and they didn't connect with other topics.

For example, if Europe being so fragmented was cited as the reason why it did well economically, why was Africa being so fragmented while largely fragmented in Europe's image also cited as the reason why it did poorly economically? How did Adolf Hitler come to hate the French bankers so much and yet he colluded with the Swiss bankers? Why are the Jews such a small segment of the world's population and yet they were written about by other peoples so much ( sometimes being vehemently hated?)

Shenzhen just across the border from Hong Kong boomed but its wealth was retracted into Hong Kong because few people deep down trust the CCP. Look, even the prominent CCP's élites' children were sent abroad to their avowed enemy, the U.S.A., to live or study! I'm pretty sure that their money is also kept in a hard currency such as the U.S. dollar. Hyper-politicization has its costs in trust. What would happen if some idiot like Mao ( oh, by the way, idiocy observes no state boundaries!) should rise to power again in Red Fuckgina in yet another political power struggle? What would happen if neo-Mao wouldn't get lung cancer fast and early enough to die? Send the youth to learn from the people living closest to the mud. What did that produce? Muddied brains? Mao certainly produced one generation ( 25 years roughly ) of youth with muddied brains so yeah, history showed that Mao had to die in order for China to rise. Mao used politics for hiding his own blatant policy failures in order to hang on to power. Did he break the Muslim paradise magical number of seventy-two virgins for a martyr?

The only thing I had learnt by walking through a tall-corn field ( mansplainingly lost in a seemingly boundless expanse without any markings; I was a hiker since I was a preschooler so there was indeed a bit of cockiness because I used to walk everywhere in our many square miles of "backyard playground" and never got lost ) in the mud and in autumn's near-freezing cold was that I didn't want to experience that again, particularly the cold as the sky darkened and the fear of being outside in the cold dark night started to kick in ( when and where will I emerge? NO idea!) I got the message loud and clear though that geez... the U.S.A. is vast and had produced a lot of food! Good luck finding me there in such a tall-corn field if you don't have a heat-seeking sensor!

Where are the independent investigations into the alleged police brutality in Hong Kong? One thing I had surely learnt well in my childhood was that the Periplaneta americana scurried quickly out of the cupboard in which we had put our leftover turkey sandwich and the P. germanica became great Fallschirmjäger when the hapless female pulled out the kitchen drawer where the kid had put his crackers. In both cases, light was suddenly shone and the feeding frenzy stopped fast for a sprint and a jump. Transparency sometimes inhibits some people who may still feel shame. Of course, there are shameless people, too...

When one washes one's face, achieving efficiency means only scrubbing the nose bridge clean because it's what other people definitely see. It's "the Capital!" ( with Socallist characteristics ) Rot scheint die Sonne der Wladiwostok, Turkestan.

Hong Kong is perching on the edge of a precipice.

If this (within-the-top-3 per Steve Bannon) global financial hub's linkage to the World is cut, the disruptive effects will likely be felt worldwide, mostly finance-related and therefore in the associated real-world operations involving money.

It's past 10 o'clock, do you know where your data are? In South Berlin servers? Isn't Redtube engrossing? Yeah, ahhhnold, the West is red, the sun is rising, the North is red, and the East is red, but still parental responsibilities beckon.

Build that Wall of South Berlin. Hail to Donald John Trump Thought.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo! Carrie Lam said that she did good works. Hahaha! Hell definitely needs her talent!

There's an old saying, "no good works go unpunished."

What good works of hers? An obviously unintended product:


We, the People of Hong Kong, hereby DECLARE that we are a FREE and as of right, a Sovereign PEOPLE. We are not now, nor have we ever been a part of the Communist Party of China. China, as an unfree, undemocratic, totalitarian, surveillance State, is not recognizable to anyone living in Hong Kong. We must state clearly the issue facing us: Communism, the political scourge of this planet, is at our doorstep and threatening everything we hold sacred. Freedom and democracy shall die in Hong Kong or it shall live forever.
This is the great struggle of our time: Hong Kong "shall become all the one thing or all the other". History will record either that Hong Kong became like China or that China became like Hong Kong - no other outcome is possible. None.
Never in history has an elder generation of its citizens bargained for their own freedom during their own time, by condemning their future offspring to live unfree under total communist rule. Such was the Devils bargain made by the UK and the Communist Party of China, and imposed upon our generation and the next, in perpetuity, forever. We are Hong Kongers and we utterly rejects this and call on all right minded nations to step up and end this nightmare. This is the time. This is the place. This is it. Now. Now. Now. On this issue we must be clear: no future generation of Hong Kongers shall be sacrificed and given over to Communist Rule. NOT ON OUR WATCH. We NEVER voted to approve Communist rule of Hong Kong and a Free People could never agree themselves into such a state of utter despotism.


Many countries accept the spouses of their citizens as new immigrants. Some may choose being raped red than dead (such as in occupied Korea under Imperial Japan's Military or conquered Berlin under the Soviet Red Army.) We understand and sympathize with "comfort women." Sex and death are perennial obsessions of all Homos, the latter one being very rare among living species. Society controls sex trade, gambling, and drug trade because they all link to the human biochemical pleasure circuitry and the consequent addictive behaviors which may disrupt social order. It's generally best for anyone doing business to stay away from these as much as possible.

As I see through my sunglasses at the assault weapon, a cowardly man shoves around a steel penis, shoots a few rounds, and scurries off in a hurry back to the safety of the shadow of the BigAss. A woman can also grab a steel penis to supplement her stubby fleshy one (except the Muslim ones possibly missing theirs due to their having undergone genital mutilations) to screw the patriarchy. Flip some road signs when the red invasion commences. Test whether jammer for military communications can work. Determine electrical grid shutoff topology and where the barrack(s) get their electricity. If necessary for long-term resistance, pollute or destroy drinking water supplies of the barrack(s). Start hiding away sharp knives (longer-bladed ones exceeding four-inches { but seven inches or more are likely better } can pierce deeply enough through the ribs or collar bones to kill, there's a bayonet-{often-nine-or-ten-inches-long}-favorite soft spot below the sternum between the left-side and right-side ribs up through the diaphram to reach the heart and lungs,) baseball bats, bricks, etc. to prepare for underground resistance. Get encryption for message devices and VPN service to mask location. Spray paint can render mask visors opaque to block vision. Bags of hard beads such as kids' play-marbles or dried beans can be dispersed to trip up pursuers. Discern how fuel is supplied to the vehicles and seize or knock out fuel depots. Deploy road strips to slash vehicle tires. Find out where barrack(s) food is made, slip in a few tasty made-in-Red-China fentanyl (20 tons of it seized in Mexico had enough dosage to kill EVERYONE on Earth - a little bit goes a long way; in that shipment, the U.S. was a targeted enemy but Red China can get its own друг) "dog treats." Similarly for ammunitions, food, and water. Seize or destroy supply convoys. Food tasters and water drinkers will become the number-one occupation on Earth. That is "a job-creation program you can believe in." 911 Carrera created a lot of jobs in the DHS and added hours to air-travel time from coast to coast (Hillary was at least correct about the existence of "flyover country" where the U.S. still has a lot of undeveloped land with big sky devoid of skyscrapers unlike Hong Kong urban areas; it's more accessible and warmer than much of Siberia due to the grid-like transportation infrastructure) 911.2 Candela should create a lot of jobs in the kitchen cabinet and add hours to meal-ingredients-to-mouth time. Pootin the Great has Novichok door-handle disinfectant spray for the people who need stronger friends than друг for East Turkestan. Strip off the uniforms of newly captured prisoners. Put on their uniforms to scout out their congregations, supply schedules, and deployments.

In order to minimize casualties on all sides, a decapitation strike is often the best.

Hinter jedem Schwein gibt es eine Hündin.

Yellow Stasi may well overrun South Berlin.

Where's the Wall? Hahaha! Red China, the Great-Wall/-Firewall expert, will pay for it with Jack Ma's donation. Jack Ma got out far luckier than the man who wrote their national anthem or the anointed successor to Mao Zedong!

The Left is right, the Right is right, and That is that! After all, Rio Grande flows through South Berlin, doesn't it? Hong Kong has even lower unemployment rate than the much touted number of the U.S. but Hong Kong has more unrest so it's obvious that having a job alone isn't good enough for contentment. Livelihood (what it is, how it's obtained, destroyed, or created, who needs it, when one needs it, where it's obtainable, terminated, or originated, why it matters, etc.) is a much better framework to use for talking about socio-politico-economic topics.

The whole World should tune in to watch our Congressional trial of our sitting[-in-the-hotseat!] President when and if that show begins. It'll be our Constitution-put-to-the-test drama played out for the whole World audience.

Our can't-be-indicted-while-sitting President will experience by himself what defending his own human rights feels like. Can he just plead our Fifth-Amendment right against self incrimination to avoid being "tortured?" I'm fishing and hoping for a "humane solution" to "the crushed skulls" purportedly being over there in "the Skeleton Pit." Mueller's beer has been set out of the refrigerator long enough to become warm by now: urine is auto-warmbeer that saved a city in Belgium from being obliterated by a blaze. There's a very special hotseat reserved for the very special not-necessarily-Trump "most powerful man" in the World. Isn't Red China actively supporting the DPRK to "lock [it]self in a dark room?"

Believe in Red China and one's profit/loss statement will be written on the empty red pockets of "lucky money." Have you bought Canadian and Australian real estate yet? It's a great hedge (do you remember how Swiss banks funded Hitler's war machine using the money of the Jews targeted by it for extinction?) to make Carrie Lam and Xi Jinping (Trump's 替死鬼, who started "the Chinese Dream" to displace "the American Dream") work for you when Hong Kong dies.

Of course, you don't have to be evil by funding Red China's rampage. "Don't be evil," - Brin. Jack Ma was not a great gambler but he was smarter than some others. He knew when to fold. Guess where the children of the CCP elites attend college. Xi Jinping's daughter is in the City of Cambridge, Mass. U.S.A. Why not Beijing University instead? Hmm... My ass is substantive and attractive.

I actually think that it's a good thing to have someone with 关系 guānxì (connection) having lived in the U.S.A. It might have averted unnecessary carnage. I was frankly astonished when Japanese youngsters were interested in knowing which country won in WWII after they had learnt that Japan fought the U.S.A. It seemed that they had thought of Imperial Japan as having a good chance at beating the U.S.A. If they had lived in San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle, etc, and were observant, they might have had a better grasp of what Imperial Japan was going up against. Kamikaze suicide bombers did suicidal attacks due to Imperial Japan's lack of enough oil resources to be able to let them fly home. Some Imperial-Japanese-Army soldiers became cannibals in latter part of the war in the Pacific Ocean's island chains due to the lack of supplies. Some chopped or sliced off pieces of flesh or organs from U.S. P.O.W. for meat and kept the prisoners alive to preserve "the freshness" of the meat on the meat source for yet another meal. Some well-supplied high-ranking officers ate the flesh and organs of U.S. prisoners of war in more of a victory celebratory festival with sake.

In the interest of postwar governance, the rehabilitation of Japan, and peace, General MacArthur instituted the policy of respecting Japanese culture and customs as well as not prosecuting the even worse crimes against conquered Asian countries' civilians (the CCP suppressed this information to court Japanese investment money.) This policy however allowed postwar Japan to keep its horrific wartime behaviors in secret. The Japanese Government has been censoring Japan's history school textbooks for many decades so that their school children didn't learn the truth about the depravity and degeneracy of Imperial Japan. Unlike Germany which has museum historical exhibits about Nazi wartime atrocities, Japan to this very day seeks to hide in numerous senses its even worse atrocities from its own children. Yep, even after dropping nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the U.S. was a peace-loving country. It's why the U.S. needs to defend its and others' security interest in the Pacific island chains ( the state or territory of the U.S. with the highest percentage of its residents serving in the U.S. Military is.. Guam! ) Their and our freedom, security, and peace were won by "the Greatest Generation" ( e.g. my Dad, George H.W. Bush, Douglas A. MacArthur; all of them have passed on so before we lose all of our memories about why our Pacific power and security structure is the way it is, I want to bring this out to the World so that we don't fall into the same trap again; Japan used to have a culture respected and admired by Teddy Roosevelt and many other people but its youngsters lost their cultural legacy so they plunged Northeast, East, and Southeast Asia into terrible wartime depravity and degeneracy; in many senses, Red China is growing fast into the new Imperial Japan with their youngsters being shielded from the truth by the CCP's twisted nationalist propaganda and its Great Firewall in order to preserve its own power; the U.S. will probably have to KILL THEM ALL OFF to de-contaminate the propagandized minds; due to corporations helping CCP with its repressive infowar agenda, soft power espoused since the Clinton administration failed; unless the Great Firewall is breached to give cultural-exchange viscosity-drag a chance, hard power will be the only option left ) with much blood, sweat, and tears so we the trust-freedom babies mustn't give them up.

The Imperial-Japanese Army's disrespect in China for the International Settlements' rights there sealed its fate. Why did the U.S. ally with China to fight Imperial Japan? Japan killed U.S. nationals in China. Of course, the U.S. being a Pacific power in the way of Japan's getting to the oil in the Dutch East Indies (nowadays Indonesia) played a part, too. Controlling that oil was "the Nippon Dream" to displace "the American Dream" via the sneaky attack on Pearl Harbor to cripple U.S. as a Pacific power. I'm starting to think that maybe Trump was on the right track to want a display of American Firepower. "Kill a chicken to scare the monkey." I thought it possibly being obscene but with the deflated and impotent blimpy dickhead, the inexperienced but getting wet and swelling dickhead, the tough hard cold microdickhead, the overheated bandage-wrapped newly circumcised dickhead, etc. all pulling down their pants, this can be far more fun than a bachelor party ( bordering on being obscene but it's educational because usually, NO real action is allowed; after all, the soon-to-be-bridegroom needs to be whipped up into a sex-crazed frenzy so that he can go home, grab his new bride, and "practice [like some so-called doctors]" his [ideally and hopefully but less likely nowadays] new skills AT HOME in holy matrimony { more accurately described as holey matrimoney. } 《早生貴子。 》) We do have the one and only dickhead that shows what it is like to be really FUCKED to live near the bottom of this gravitational well in North-East Syria and experience a sudden spurt of sleeping-baby-erectile dark energy!

Oh yeah, I quiver in great fear of the millions-strong "People's Liberation Army." Aren't you quivering, too? When did it last fight a war? Hmm, in 1979 against Vietnam (a very tough A.. to whip!) Did you know of the U.S. 》amerikanische Staatssicherheit,《 A.S.S? P.L.A. beats it hands down as the People Licking A.S.S. When did the U.S. last fight a war? Interesting question. I defer to the Japanese children. The U.S. is the most peace-loving country on Earth. Never forget that! Our praying mantis prays and cuts off the head of the P. americana in Imperial-Japanese-Army style for "scientific research" into ground spinning objects.

The NBA needs help reaching its caged fans in North-East Asia. That tallest (yet-another-Trump TV?) tower in Pyongyang seems perfectly suited for hosting the sleeping-baby-erectile dark energy unleashed by National Basketball Association's instanton. Can Dennis Rodman help?

I remember the excitement of the pubescent bachelor boys upon dumping the potted mountain-stream water from our canteens. The very hot vexing question about the soapy-wet bikini-clad huge-tit soaping-scrubbing woman whose bathwater we had drunk while we were farther down the gorge and nearer to the beach was, "Would she like a game of basketball?" Dark energy from a horsie stable could surely splinter! Umm... Ahem. Yumm... Yeah, we loved the Amazon-Prime membership for soap opera in the pubescent imaginative bachelors' league.

"Chickens' butts hold much dark energy," was my epiphany after going head-to-head against my Big Brother speed-eating four pounds of "gourmet chicken butts."

Where's the independent investigation into the violence?

Firing a teargas canister in the proper way towards the sky in a parabolic (more strictly speaking, elliptical, nearly) trajectory is highly unlikely to hit the eye of a protestor. The fact that it happened implies that a police violation of the rule of law likely occurred. It surely stemmed from Red China's backing up to and mucking up Hong Kong. Red China is LAWLESS and ARBITRARY.

The World must diligently study Trump Thought and all must struggle as one to bring it to fruition. Trump is the Man of the People. His budget is surely redder than Red Fuckgina's from the rusty planet, Mars. He's right up there with Pootin the Great and Winnie the Pooh. Recently, he's had his hair rejuvenated at the Burning-Hair[roll?] [No-wo]men's Festival. God was well pleased: glory to the newborn king!

I wouldn't want to be God. 7.4 billion people expect their lives to be improved (billions plan to do so with the cheap and abundant coal.) It's a tough job. It's NOT just a political blowjob.

Red China welcomes what Iran has done to increase oil prices worldwide because it is insulated from Iran and has got Xi thought powering its economy. When you put gasoline into a car in Red China, you are using Xi thought. It's definitely not oil from Iran because Iran sends its oil through Israel's pipeline going from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea in order to reach Europe and beyond, bypassing Africa altogether. Xi thought doesn't leave Africa behind but Trump Thought has higher octane rating for sure.

Iran is a vanguard in the fight against global anthropogenic climate change. Upon the great and influential leadership of Trump Thought, Iran has voluntarily reduced its export of carbon-based fossil fuels to improve its independence. It has successfully fought off the exploitation by the West of its oil wealth under the glorious guidance of Trump Thought. Everyone who calls for the lifting of the sanctions sanctifying Iran's state sovereignty to hold on to its oil wealth is a traitor to the glorious thousands-of-years-old and law-making-and-abiding Persia which had stood alone against the onslaught of the hordes of Jews and Arabs.

Hong Kong was pivotal to Trump Thought.

Due to its superior octane rating, Trump Thought singlehandedly saved China from its poppy lower grades. "Thousands of miles of red mountains and rivers" @6:48 of Trump Thought, the video, were red because they were built out of the bodies and blood, respectively.

Hong Kong has been detached in many ways from several reigns of the China "motherland" for centuries so due to its having been returned to Red China after such a long separation, it should be given sufficient time to overcome the centuries-old linguistic, cultural, political, social, societal, and economic estrangement. Red China should earn its "motherland"-hood over Hong Kong only through gentle ways, not the extremely crude ways used so far which amounted to an insidious promise-breaking forcible union akin to the non-consensual groping and near rape of a CORNERED young girl on a late-night bus (which is a bit similar to what the global-anthropogenic-climate-change-fight's leader, India, has done to Kashmir; in order to help the machismo Indian men to satisfy their sexual fantasies { via the psychological mechanism of "displacement" } rather than preying upon vulnerable young girls or women, www.redtube.com is a free and hardcore sexually explicit pornographic aggregator website that is a modern-day-cultural-and-commercial-derivative { owned by Canadians and operated out of Texas } of the world-famous Indian classic, the Kama Sutra, whose depictions to help some of the ancient illiterate Indians procreate can still be seen nowadays in Hindu temples to enlighten the masses so that they can fulfill the trans-religious biblical mandate, "be fruitful, multiply, and fill up all the earth," of which India has succeeded very well, even here in the U.S, and will undoubtedly surpass Red China someday with coal's solidified stored sunshine energy from eons ago; the online world is truly amazingly explicit for the youth today, with a sex video beating "a thousand words" and maybe even some bachelor parties -- as it took me quite an effort in the third grade reading and puzzling out the anatomical human soft/wet/reproware in my Big Brother's high-school biology textbooks to uncover my Mom's lie that I was picked up as a baby from the stinky public toilet, of which I executed an on-site visit and conducted a firsthand albeit brief examination and multi-sensory inspection and sampling of the dried-up scum, slush, semi-solid brown-matter islands, buzzing flies, and the pervasive stinky smell of the white-porcelain-lined hole on the dirt floor in the outdoor wooden-walled stall, while accompanied by my Big Brother who was the Tsar of our family's chamber-pot operation, probably thinking of down-sourcing to me our family's most important task { the second one being the buying and fetching home of the potable municipal water with two buckets and a yoke, from a tap on the same bluff as the toilet area; } Science beats old-wives' tales { Mom retracted her lie, as I had already expected from my firsthand visit, when I got older; } Note @9:04 of the video how the CCP used U.S. partisan fights and governmental shutdowns to discredit freedom and democracy in order to consolidate its single-party authoritarian dictatorship; Hong Kongers who have certainly lived next to that for many decades know better than to succumb; Hong Kong is analogous to West Berlin during the Cold War years but with East Germany having its greatly feared Stasi infiltrate and kidnap political dissidents and troops being stationed at the heart of West Berlin; New Yorkers have been murdered by this open-border Globalism; in the CCP textbook shoved to Hong Kong teachers to indoctrinate the youth, the U.S. is well identified as THE ENEMY; are we Americans the carpetbaggers like the Clintons or are we red-blooded Texasses who still remember the Alamo? I like badass!) The actions were disrespectful, crude, and rude. Upon hearing, "Don't touch me!" from Hong Kong, Red China should just back off. Redtube beckons and may suffice.

A modern nation is not built upon or defined by its genetic heritage. Were it so, the U.S. should be called the Real Liberal Germany because the U.S.A. was where the numerous liberal losers went when Prussia started uniting German-speaking lands to create the über-militaristic German Empire ("where the Army has a State.") I read that Donald J. Trump's immigrant ancestor from Germany was such a peace-loving loser flushed out by Germany's having gone über-militaristic. I have some understanding of that don't-be-in-Germany sentiment from my Dad about Germany having gone "somewhat crazy" or "Germany is not an immigrant country." Eier, Eier, Eier! ( It's probably less scary to my Dad than Tora, Tora, Tora! or 虎、虎、虎! due to more familiarity { through his Dad's North-Sea/Baltic-Sea trading partners } and experience { as he was likely in Honolulu on "the day that would live in infamy." } ) Kennst du mich, Herr [friedliebende] Kriegsmarine?

Ahh, America! Pootin admires the creativity and openness of the way in which the U.S.A. tackles problems. Right on the button. It's time for the whole world to see why the U.S.A. is so admired by Pootin the Great: hands up, pants down!

Maybe we Americans have nothing better to do than to fancy about what lurks beneath "the Tsar's" underwear (a nuclear-powered hotrod? Just thinking about it sends me towards the repo market.) The U.S. Treasury wants near-real cash for estimated-tax payment, not just credit-card earnings so the Federal Reserve creates it "out of thin air" to help corporations pay their taxes. The U.S. might have become nearly cashless (overnight borrowing interest rate spiking up to 10% showed a confidence-in-the-quality-of-the-pawned-"assets" or liquidity problem.)

Only fools hold "near cash" (which is used by companies to meet payrolls; imagine how quickly things can unwind if workers aren't paid) but when almost everyone is wise, only the fools can save them or the Federal Reserve can paper it over the fiscal-year ending crevasse. Isn't it logical that we often talk about an "October Surprise" in the financial world? "We'll see."

这是中国一位长期居民的一段视频,他被中国共产党严厉的洗脑专政所困扰。This is a video from a longtime China resident upset by the heavy-handed brainwashing dictatorship of the incompetent Chinese Communist Party. I've just realized that Winnie the Pooh is a loyal customer of the chamber pot, Pootin the Great. That's why they often stick together!

The statue of Freedom perches upon the top of our Capitol, our house of self-governance for our people (Democracy,) occupying the highest position in Washington, D.C. Let's always remember our nation's highest value.

Beijing is under "terrorist" attacks. What can everyone do to avoid the impending calamity in Hong Kong? A potential violent crackdown may only be weeks away!

With that, the rule of law for which so many Western companies had chosen Hong Kong as their homebase of registration, incorporation, and/or operation to do business with Red China would be lost. Edward Snowden who certainly knew at least some things, chose Hong Kong to escape to probably due to its lack of extradition treaties so that the laws imposed on him wouldn't amorphously deform and change.

I don't really see any valid argument why Red China is an arctic country with nothing of it abutting the Arctic Ocean. Maybe it's just greed. Nor can I understand why it claims nearly the entirety of the South China Sea as its very own with the 9-dotted-line map. Red China is a bully in its neighborhood. If the U.S. starts to call it the Western American Warm Lake and changes all of the references to it as the South China Sea in our history, textbooks, and documents, will that make it "American?" We can see by the U.S. denying visas to journalists worldwide who don't call it the Western American Warm Lake in their publications. If they still don't comply, we'll freeze any assets of their countries and impose sanctions.

As a youngster sleeping for eleven hours a night, I sometimes dreamt of the Western American Warm Lake and woke up next to it. The American Empire's influence was close-by and narrow (all great empires were authoritarian and brittle -- cultures and languages are formidable barriers; without committing cultural and linguistic genocides, cultures and languages cannot change in a generation so authoritarian repressive governance is often used.) After her looking at the budgies (budgerigar means "good eating" in aborigines' language) and the boy biting into the berry, he said, "it tastes like meat," but it wasn't, as the radio broadcast, "today is Armistice Day." I didn't like the Empire's Abrahamic influence on my Mom, though, who started sounding more like a movie director, "cut, cut, cut!"

The Northern Europeans handled the situation of discovering oil and gas resources in the North Sea fairly peaceably. Red China and its neighbors may be able to borrow some ideas from how the resource boundaries were drawn.

It takes nineteen years to grow an adult human being starting from a fertile mating couple and nurturing parents/guardians. Heavy military equipment left behind in a hurry on the beaches of Dunkirk wouldn't take long to be replaced by "the arsenal of democracy." The liberation of western Europe was largely won by the convoys and their sailors in the icy cold water of the North Atlantic.

A child once asked me whether the Earth is overpopulated or not. My answer was, "both overpopulated and under-populated." The kind of the people makes a huge difference.

Red China may crush Hong Kong people militarily but all we can save will be back with better training, tactics, and equipment to conquer (or liberate with the Peoples' Liberation Army) China, with the help of the caged and oppressed Chinese people and the freedom-loving peoples of the World.
