Leadership and politics – the West compared to China

[video v=jhxsjNfnoYo]

Regarding term limits - President Xi is exceptionally well read and very much the right person at the right time, a period where China will (is) facing unprecedented attack for its success. Xi's plan is longer term and so requires a longer term limit; an extraordinary measure for extraordinary times.

China – a meritocracy

What’s going on in Hong Hong ?

The bankrupt 'West' and its obsession with imperial conquest and world domination to enslave the people for the benefit of an elite, has long been trying to destabilise all countries not subservient to its US dollar based Ponzi scheme - notably Russia, China, Venezuala, Brazil and Iran. It is also a Mafia-like 'piece of the action' protection racket.

It's not a new thing - consider the 1 million plus murdered in Iraq, the slaughter in Syria and Libya, and the ongoing destruction of Palestine. The million bombs dropped on Vietnam and Korea, burning and shredding ordinary people in their fields and villages; millions dead. Latin America - dictators and death squads; more millions dead. The overthrow of the people's choice, such as JFK (US) and Allende (Chile), and the installation and support of brutal despots such as Pinochet (Chile) and Suharto (Indonesia). It's a long, long list of utter shame, hot on the heels of the european colonisation of asia and africa, the genocide of the native people of north america and the slave trade. Nuclear bomb tests on civilian populations (Japan). Torture camps from where those still alive cannot be released as they are missing parts of their bodies. Where virtually everything in life is subject to some regulation or permit and tax. Where you get to choose, now and then, from two puppets dangling from the one puppet-master.

The american people left to live in poverty while the MIC takes all the cash to run 700+ military bases all around the globe.

So who is the umbrella that protects the organisers, and which they hide under ?

Undercover, proxy (i.e. 'umbrella') destabilisation - a how-to guide

Same tactic as 1989 in Beijing - hijack a small protest and control it to something big; catchy name, provocateurs, etc. The leaders all magically reappeared in the US. As if the statue of liberty wasn't a big enough clue ! It goes on all the time; look at Ukraine (Russia was caught napping).

We suggest that you be wary of travel to and connection with Israel, the US, the UK, Canada, France and Australia. Or any other puppet regime country such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Japan, South Korea, the Philipines, Vietnam, Malaysia, etc. Places like Japan might feel special, but in reality are simply missile silos, ready to be expended. In particular, avoid study abroad in these countries. If you stay in China but study in a foreign university, beware of attempts to recruit you as a spy / trouble-maker - contact the government for advice if this happens.

Remember - everything you see on the BBC, ITN, Channel 4 news, Fox, CNN, ABC, AFP, etc is there to sell you a lie. There's no difference between them all, just as with the political parties; it's all a scam, an illusion of 'freedom' to keep you as slaves to an elite. In the 'West', politicians don't work for the people but for vested interests / the elite, who want to subjugate all other peoples of the world the same way.

The 'umbrella' controls the news / events. And it controls you by controlling what you know.

The British didn't give a damn about 'democracy' while they were in charge. So what is it really all about ? Conquest and looting of course. Well-meaning perhaps, innocents (naive dupes / 'useful idiots') getting involved in this should realise one thing - they are being used, and it is absolutely not in their interests.

Some excerpts from

It is an article we do not fully agree with, but which does at least point out US control of the HK protests, particularly its leaders :

US goals are very different than the people in Hong Kong. The US is in the process of encircling China militarily and economically. It sees China as a competitor, a nation that can undermine the US as the single world superpower. Conflict between Hong Kong and Beijing would serve US interests but undermine the Hong Kong economy which is tied to China. The protest movement has already begun to separate itself from people too close to the US. Hong Kong needs to go further and expel US influence, remembering the historic imperialism of the US in China and noting the current strategic goals of the United States.


The US consistently uses legitimate concerns of people to build its Empire and challenge perceived enemies. China is at the top of the list for the US with the Asian Pivot of military forces to the region, building military relationships with Asian allies and negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership that excludes China – all isolating and threatening China with economic and military force. It is not surprising that the aspirations of the people of Hong Kong are being used by the US.


if the revolt were to succeed, what kind of influence would the US have over the selection of the next leader? Would Hong Kong end up with a leader like Ukraine, where the US spent $5 billion to foment revolt and now has President Petro Poroshenko who, according to Wikileaks documents, has been known in the US government as “Our Ukraine Insider” for being an informant for the State Department since 2006 [and has looted Ukraine, passing its wealth to the EU who helped coordinate the overthrow of the legitimate government, that rightly determined that the EU deal was bad for the country]. Will the next government protect neoliberal capitalism that allows the US investor class entry into China through Hong Kong for their benefit and not the benefit of the people?

Already there are signs that the Occupy Central leadership, which has US ties, is not trusted. ...

On October 2nd, a Mint Press News article exposed US support for democracy movements in Hong Kong. The article described what it called “a deep and insidious network of foreign financial, political, and media support. Prominent among them is the US State Department and its National Endowment for Democracy (NED) as well as NED’s subsidiary, the National Democratic Institute (NDI).”

The article describes work by the NDI in Hong Kong dating back to 1997, so it has been a long term strategy of the United States to foment a democracy movement in Hong Kong. “Democracy movement” means keeping Beijing from selecting who can run for office in Hong Kong and universal suffrage. NDI writes that it has been training young leaders in Hong Kong since 2005 on “political communication skills.”

The US has been funding various civic organizations in Hong Kong to work on these issues including a think tank at the University of Hong Kong, the Centre for Comparative and Public Law, from which Occupy Central “self-proclaimed” leader Benny Tai served on the board and collaborates. Another notable Occupy Central activist, Audrey Eu Yuet-mee, works closely with Tai and speaks at numerous US funded forums.

Other Hong Kong democracy movement figures in bed with NED include, according to Mint Press, Martin Lee (here’s his bio on NED website and the award the NED gave him), founding chairman of Hong Kong’s Democrat Party, who this year came to Washington, DC, met with Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Lee took part in an NED talk hosted specifically for him and his agenda of “democracy” in Hong Kong. Anson Chan, another prominent figure currently supporting the ongoing unrest in Hong Kong’s streets, was also in DC and met with Biden and Pelosi.

Revolution News went further into US ties to the Occupy Central movement examining the budgets of US ‘democracy’ institutions. They report that one of Occupy Central’s key tactics this summer, a “referendum” on democracy signed by 780,000 Hong Kong residents, more than 1/5th of Hong Kong voters, was funded by the US State Department. (A similar tactic was used in the Egyptian protest against Morsi that led to the Sisi dictatorship.)


The economic challenges in Hong Kong are, in part, related to its changing role in China. The   Plus more videos ...
