Hong Kong protesters march to US Consulate to call for help from Trump

Hong Kong (CNN) - Protests calling on US President Donald Trump to intervene in the ongoing Hong Kong political standoff escalated rapidly Sunday, with marchers setting fire to a barricade outside a subway station entrance in the city's business district.


Earlier in the day, tens of thousands of protesters waving US flags marched on Hong Kong's US Consulate to call for help from the Trump administration in ending a three-month confrontation with the government.


The march began in the Chater Garden public park in Central before heading to the consulate as part of the 14th straight weekend of public demonstrations in the Asian financial hub. In a letter which protesters planned to presented to consulate officials, the group calls for the passing of the proposed "Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act 2019" by the US Congress.


....


"We share the same US values of liberty and democracy," 30-year-old banker David Wong said. "USA is a country of democracy. Donald Trump is elected by his people. We want this."




China’s worst nightmare may be happening: Mainland Chinese citizens are now participating in pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, according to recent reports.


Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that a “small cohort of mainlanders have joined the demonstrations, taking extraordinary risks to support a society that offers freedoms unavailable back home.”


“My understanding is that ‘one country, two systems’ is a creative set of ideals,” a 24-year-old Chinese graduate student living in Hong Kong with the last name Chen told the paper. “Now those ideals are threatened.”


The mainlanders said they value Hong Kong’s autonomy from Chinese control and have joined marches, signed open letters supporting Hong Kong, and defended the movement on social media.


Their participation is an indication that the movement could spread to mainland China, despite attempts by the government to brand the Hong Kong protesters as traitors.


Chinese authorities are reportedly checking travelers’ smartphones as they reenter China for evidence of participation in the demonstrations.


Another mainland Chinese citizen who took part in the protests has fled to Taiwan where he is hoping to stay, according to a report by Radio Free Asia.

Hurricane Dorian did damage to China’s mysterious massive installation in the Bahamas, only a short distance to the US mainland:


China built a port on a remote island of The Bahamas 180 miles off the U.S. coast, prompting suspicion from locals who are concerned about China’s potential military ambitions in the area. The port is currently empty, unused, and surrounded by barbed wire.


Big League Politics has learned from Bahamian sources that residents are afraid to talk about the new Chinese installation in Coopers Town, which has a population of 676 on the island of Abaco. The 45-acre port was built by the China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) and is financed by the EXIM Bank of China and the Bahamian government. The port is closed and the road around it is too small for even construction trucks to drive on. Locals speculate that the port will be used for submarines.


There is no reason at all for the port,” one local resident told Big League Politics. “The Chinese have been investing heavily, and nobody seems to know why.”


“I think so, in the future it looks like it’s going to end up being for military supplies,” the resident said. “Not many people are aware of it.”


“Some of the locals work there, but the port is closed so they laid them all off.”


“[The Chinese] just stay in the ports, they don’t walk around. They go exercising early in the morning on the road or late in the evening. They don’t socialize with anybody. Many of them don’t even speak English,” the resident said.


“People haven’t been asking about it because they know what happens,” the resident said. “Our government is filled with corruption…they come looking for you, they beat your ass, they torch you until they get what they want out of you. They have no proper interrogation methods.”


“Before they [the Chinese] leave, they leave like $800,000 for the community, they’ve been doing that all over the Carribean. They leave parks, and things like that…In Jamaica, they have invested in roads, water and sewer.”


Another commenter posted a message from a Bahamian that reads, “I just can’t wait until the U.S. media and U.S. public wake up to the fact that their government (the Obama/Hillary/Kerry government) has permitted Red China to set up shop (including deep water stealth submarine operations) in the Bahamas only a few short miles away from Florida and the entire Eastern Seaboard.


The China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) began construction on the port in North Abaco, The Bahamas, in 2014. “The port will be used to store a variety of building materials including steel, limestone and cement and other items, up to 10,000 tons,” reported the Jamaica Observer.


“The project is valued at $US49M which will be funded by the EXIM Bank of China and the Government of the Bahamas,” the China Harbour Engineering Company said on its website.


The Progressive Liberal Party in the Bahamas, which was in the majority until the 2017 elections when it became the second most-powerful party, oversaw construction of the port during its five years of governance.


Latrae Rahming, Progressive Liberal Party and Senior Chinese Caribbean Government Consultant, said in a speech in Nassau on April 9, 2016 that the Bahamas is committed to a pro-China policy (emphasis added):


China will actively provide Military assistance to The Bahamas and defense dialogue,” Rahming said. “Recently through its agreed on obligations, China donated 1.2 million dollars to The Bahamas to purchase military equipment so as to improve jointly the capacity to respond to non-traditional security threats. Without a doubt, The Bahamas must prudently manage the complexities within the relationship. China’s growing presence in The Bahamas warrants active policy consideration. The Bahamas continues to be courteous to the advancement of China’s political, economic, social and cultural integration with the view of safeguarding it country’s long-term interest.”


“There’s a sustained perspective that China’s growing presence in the region seeks to undermine the United States strategic position and influence in its hemisphere. China’s incredibly ambitious foreign policy in The Bahamas and other Caribbean countries is Beijing continued efforts of improving its geostrategic significance unraveling its economic strength,” Rahming said in his speech, but denied that China’s influence on the islands is meant to curtail the influence of the United States.


“We always see the China through a prism of western media,” Latrae Rahming said on China Daily in June. “I think what I’ve learned is that the western media’s always been unfair to the Chinese people.”

The U.S. Justice Department (DOJ) is attempting to block the construction of an undersea cable linking Los Angeles to Hong Kong due to national security concerns.


The 8,000-mile, $300 million undersea cable would be a joint project between Google, Facebook, and a Chinese investor called Dr. Peng Telecom & Media Group. The goal of the project, formally known as the Pacific Light Network, is to establish high-speed Internet connectivity between the U.S., Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines, improving traffic speed for all participants.


The Justice Department is reportedly concerned about the Chinese investor, as well as the security implications of linking L.A. systems directly to Hong Kong.


The WSJ wrote that if the project is blocked, it could “rewrite the rules of Internet connectivity between the U.S. and China.”


DOJ is part of an inter-agency review process for telecommunications issues that has approved numerous other projects with Chinese investors and partners in the past. If this undersea cable is permanently blocked, it would be the first time permission has been denied for such a project.


Google (or more precisely its parent company, Alphabet Inc.) requested permission to begin work on the Hong Kong-L.A. cable in 2017 and obtained temporary permits for preliminary construction and testing, but the Justice and Defense Departments asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to delay final approval until a national security review could be completed. The review is still officially in progress with no fixed completion date.


The Justice Department’s concerns about Dr. Peng Telecom & Media Group might be due to its partnership with Huawei, the Chinese telecom giant that has been effectively bannedfrom doing business with U.S. firms due to suspicions its equipment could be compromised by Chinese intelligence agencies.


The Trump administration has rejected over 130 requests by American companies to trade with Huawei due to national security concerns. Although President Donald Trump indicated some exemptions to the ban would be permitted, none appear to have been granted so far.

Remember Trump talking about Greenland?

How Greenland Could Become China's Arctic Base

BBC ^

Posted on 8/20/2019, 5:57:10 PM by Helicondelta


China is flexing its muscles. As the second richest economy in the world, its businessmen and politicians are involved just about everywhere in Asia, Africa and Latin America.


Now, though, China is taking a big interest in a very different part of the world: the Arctic.


It has started calling itself a "near-Arctic" power, even though Beijing is almost 3,000km (1,800 miles) from the Arctic Circle. It has bought or commissioned several ice-breakers - including nuclear-powered ones - to carve out new routes for its goods through the Arctic ice.


And it is eyeing Greenland as a particularly useful way-station on its polar silk road.


(Excerpt) Read more at bbc.com ...





This just keeps happening…


In May 2009 two global warming activists were hoping to reach Greenland’s polar ice cap in a solar and wind powered yacht.


(Carbon Neutral Expediions)

Unfortunately, they ran into cold and stormy weather and had to be rescued by an oil tanker.


In December 2013 a Russian expedition ship carrying global warming scientists got stuck in ice. And a Chinese ice breaker sent to rescue the scientists got stuck in the ice just miles away.


Now this…

The arctic tour ship MS Malmo had to be rescued this week after getting stuck in the ice off of Longyearbyen, Svalbard Archipelago, halfway between Norway and North Pole.

Via Not a Lot of People Know That:


Arctic tours ship MS MALMO with 16 passengers on board got stuck in ice on Sep 3 off Longyearbyen, Svalbard Archipelago, halfway between Norway and North Pole. The ship is on Arctic tour with Climate Change documentary film team, and tourists, concerned with Climate Change and melting Arctic ice. All 16 Climate Change warriors were evacuated by helicopter in challenging conditions, all are safe. 7 crew remains on board, waiting for Coast Guard ship assistance.

Global Warming is Bunk Science - And Here it is in their own words:


Former U.S. Senator Timothy Wirth (D-CO), then representing the Clinton-Gore administration as U.S undersecretary of state for global issues, addressing the same Rio Climate Summit audience, agreed: “We have got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.” (Wirth now heads the U.N. Foundation which lobbies for hundreds of billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to help underdeveloped countries fight climate change.)


Also speaking at the Rio conference, Deputy Assistant of State Richard Benedick, who then headed the policy divisions of the U.S. State Department said: “A global warming treaty [Kyoto] must be implemented even if there is no scientific evidence to back the [enhanced] greenhouse effect.”


In 1988, former Canadian Minister of the Environment, told editors and reporters of the Calgary Herald: “No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…climate change [provides] the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”


In 1996, former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev emphasized the importance of using climate alarmism to advance socialist Marxist objectives: “The threat of environmental crisis will be the international disaster key to unlock the New World Order.”


IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer, speaking in November 2010, advised that: “…one has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth…


The late Stephen Schneider, who authored The Genesis Strategy, a 1976 book warning that global cooling risks posed a threat to humanity, later changed that view 180 degrees, serving as a lead author for important parts of three sequential IPCC reports. In a quotation published in Discover, he said: “On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method, on the other hand, we are not just scientists, but human beings as well. And like most people, we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climatic change. To do that, we need to get some broad-based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, entails getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of the doubts we might have. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.


Kevin Trenberth, a lead author of 2001 and 2007 IPCC report chapters, writing in a 2007 “Predictions of Climate” blog appearing in the science journal Nature.com, admitted: “None of the models used by the IPCC are initialized to the observed state and none of the climate states in the models correspond even remotely to the current observed state”.


Tom Crowley, a key member of Michael Mann’s global warming hockey team, wrote: “I am not convinced that the ‘truth’ is always worth reaching if it is at the cost of damaged personal relationships.”


Another scientist worries: “…clearly, some tuning or very good luck [is] involved. I doubt the modeling world will be able to get away with this much longer.”


Still another observed: “It is inconceivable that policymakers will be willing to make billion-and trillion-dollar decisions for adaptation to the projected regional climate change based on models that do not even describe and simulate the processes that are the building blocks of climate variability.”


One researcher foresaw some very troubling consequences: “What if climate change appears to be just mainly a multi-decadal natural fluctuation? They’ll kill us probably...


Greenpeace co-founder Peter Moore: "A powerful convergence of interests. Scientists seeking grant money, media seeking headlines, universities seeking huge grants from major institutions, foundations, environmental groups, politicians wanting to make it look like they are saving future generations. And all of these people have converged on this issue."

ICYMI: The Ocasio-Cortez Global Warming Rant That Went Totally Off The Rails

Townhall.com ^ | August 29, 2019 | Matt Vespa


In part of her video, Ocasio-Cortez said, “Even when I was on vacation, I woke up in the middle of the night at 3:30 in the morning just concerned about climate change.” As the video continued, Ocasio-Cortez said diseases are going to escape from frozen glaciers and humans will “contract” them. The young representative continued her fear-mongering approach when she said that “every coastal city will go underwater,” the Midwest and large swaths of the rest of the country will experience drought, and the sun will scorch Earth so much that we won’t be able to grow crops. […] In her video monologue, Ocasio-Cortez then recommends her solution for combatting the inevitable, earth-shattering climate change: overhauling the entire economy. She promoted her goal to “decarbonize” the entire economy, a plan that would cost about $16.2 trillion to over $20 trillion, depending upon the estimations.

"Eco-fachism"


"Before the slaughter of dozens of people in Christchurch, New Zealand and El Paso, Texas this year, the accused gunmen took pains to explain their fury, including their hatred of immigrants. The statements that authorities think the men posted online share another obsession: overpopulation and environmental degradation.


The alleged Christchurch shooter, who is charged with targeting Muslims and killing 51 people in March, declared himself an "eco-fascist" and railed about immigrants' birthrates. The statement linked to the El Paso shooter, who is charged with killing 22 people in a shopping area earlier this month, bemoans water pollution, plastic waste and an American consumer culture that is "creating a massive burden for future generations."


The two mass shootings appear to be extreme examples of ecofascism - what Hampshire College professor emeriti Betsy Hartmann calls "the greening of hate.”"

US Election 2012: Mitt Romney fortune built with help from Robert Maxwell and Jack Lyons


Robert Maxwell and Jack Lyons, two of the most notorious figures in British corporate history, helped Mitt Romney build his $250 million (£160 million) fortune, it can be disclosed.


Maxwell, the late owner of Mirror Newspapers, invested $2 million in Mr Romney's first private equity fund, which launched the controversial career in finance that the Republican presidential challenger now cites as proof of his ability to lead the US to prosperity.

Bill Gates helped cover up Jeffrey Epstein’s relationship with MIT:


A top fundraiser at Brown University has been placed on administrative leave -- not for any actions at Brown, but for potential issues tied to his previous role at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology.


According to Brian Clark at Brown University, “Peter Cohen began working at Brown in October 2018 as Director of Development for Computer and Data Science Initiatives. We are aware of the content of recent news reports about Mr. Cohen’s work at MIT’s Media Lab, which received funds from Jeffrey Epstein. Brown has not in its history received any funds from Jeffrey Epstein.”


Epstein’s donations to MIT include many that were hidden under “anonymous” -- due to his conviction as a sex abuser -- which reportedly was encouraged and managed by top MIT officials.


In a feature story published in the New Yorker published on Saturday, Cohen’s role masking Epstein’s donations was exposed.


In October, 2014, the Media Lab received a two-million-dollar donation from Bill Gates; [MIT Media Lab Director Joichi] Ito wrote in an internal e-mail, 'This is a $2M gift from Bill Gates directed by Jeffrey Epstein.' Cohen replied, 'For gift recording purposes, we will not be mentioning Jeffrey’s name as the impetus for this gift.' A mandatory record of the gift filed within the university stated only that 'Gates is making this gift at the recommendation of a friend of his who wishes to remain anonymous.' Knowledge of Epstein’s alleged role was usually kept within a tight circle. In response to the university filing, Cohen wrote to colleagues, 'I did not realize that this would be sent to dozens of people,' adding that Epstein 'is not named but questions could be asked' and that 'I feel uncomfortable that this was distributed so widely.' He wrote that future filings related to Epstein should be submitted only 'if there is a way to do it quietly.' An agent for Gates wrote to the leadership of the Media Lab, stating that Gates also wished to keep his name out of any public discussion of the donation,” reported the New Yorker.


Beyond Gates, Apollo Global Management’s CEO Leon Black is tied to Epstein and directed funds to MIT.


In August, GoLocal reported that Black’s Apollo Global Management is financing the merger of GateHouse Media and Gannett with a $1.79 billion term loan — a loan that comes with a steep interest rate of 11.5%.


The person who is nearly guaranteed to make the most money on this mega-merger deal -- a close friend of registered sex offender Epstein -- is Black. Black is one of the titans of Wall Street and over the past 20 years has had a close personal relationship with once convicted pedophile Epstein. Billionaire Black has homes all over the world and according to the Wall Street Journal owns one of four versions of Edvard Munch’s The Scream, acquired at an auction price of $119.9 million in 2012

Eric Holder in 1995 literally calling saying we must “brainwash" people against guns. It’s only 28 seconds long, but it couldn’t be clearer:

Brainwashing wasn’t just an idea. It was policy.



Cruz defending the 2A as Senator:


On Monday, September 2, 2019, Cruz tweeted, “Gun control doesn’t work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer. Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates. Let’s protect our citizens.”


Lightfoot ( the black gay Mayor of Chicago) responded by claiming gun laws in red states arm Chicago criminals. She told Cruz, Keep our name out of your mouth.”


Cruz responded by tweeting, “Mayor, the most significant ‘root cause’ is that criminals have all the guns. One place to start is not releasing back to the public, but rather locking up violent, repeat offenders before they murder again.

Four years after allowing universal ‘concealed carry’ law, Maine rated the safest state in the nation for crime


By Thomas Lifson


Since 2015, residents of the state of Maine have been allowed to carry a concealed firearm without any special permit, and now the results are in: crime has fallen to the point where the state is now rated the safest in the nation from the threat of crime.


Guns in the hands of honest citizens decrease crime. That is fact that has been statistically demonstrated by John Lott’s pathbreaking book, More Guns, Less Crime, a rick-solid statistical analysis showing that when states pass “shall issue” concealed carry laws, crime goes down. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors should take note.

Did you know the first slave owner in America was Black?


The New York Times “1619 Project” is being lauded by the liberal media and Democrats as a long overdue reckoning of the true American story. The authors believe America was founded on white racism and the enslavement of blacks, and that even today the belief in white racial supremacy is so endemic to America that it’s a part of our national DNA.


The New York Times is pushing this into the 2020 election as their new maneuver to take down President Trump. As American Thinker reported the 1619 Project is full of misrepresentations and half-truths by its biased contributors.

Perhaps its biggest omission is the fact that the first legal slave owner in America was a black man. The first legal slave owner in America was black and he owned white slaves.

Mattis Reveals Obama’s Secret Sacrifice with Iran:


Prior be being Secretary of Defense under Trump, Mattis served as commander of U.S. Central Command under Obama and Biden. Mattis had predicted that Iran would continue to provoke the United States. Mattis’s warning went ignored, and when Iran committed an act of war on American soil, he was not told about it, and the United States never responded to it.


The duty officer at his Tampa, Florida, headquarters on Oct. 11, 2011 told him that the attorney general and FBI director had held a press conference to announce the arrest of two Iranians who had planned a bomb attack on Cafe Milano, a high-end restaurant in Washington that was a favorite of the rich and famous, including Saudi Arabia’s ambassador, Adel al-Jubeir. Mattis: “I saw the intelligence: we had recorded Tehran’s approval of the operation.”


Mattis writes, “Had the bomb gone off, those in the restaurant and on the street would have been ripped apart, blood rushing down sewer drains. It would have been the worst attack on us since 9/11. I sensed that only Iran’s impression of America’s impotence could have led them to risk such an act within a couple of miles of the White House, Absent one fundamental mistake — the terrorists had engaged an undercover DEA agent in an attempt to smuggle the bomb — the Iranians would have pulled off this devastating attack. Had that bomb exploded, it would have changed history.”


In response to the plot, Mattis believed a forceful reaction was necessary. “I believed we had to respond forcefully. My military options would raise the cost for this attack beyond anything the mullahs and the Qods generals could pay.” But, Obama wasn’t interested. “We treated an act of war as a law enforcement violation, jailing the low-level courier.”


Why didn’t Obama want a forceful response to the act of war by Iran? His secret nuclear deal.


“Iraq slipped back into escalating violence. It was like watching a car wreck in slow motion,” Mattis writes. The damage done by the ignorance of Obama and Biden cannot be understated. “It would take many years and tens of thousands of casualties, plus untold misery for millions of innocents, to break ISIS’s geographic hold,” Mattis explains. “All of this was predicted — and preventable.”


Mattis believes that his reaction to Cafe Milano bomb plot, as well as his opposition to pulling out of Iraq, contributed to his being fired by Obama. “In December 2012, I received an unauthorized phone call telling me that in an hour, the Pentagon would be announcing my relief,” Mattis writes. “I was leaving a region aflame and in disarray.”
