China Brings Mainland Military Forces into Hong Kong – Protests Cry Freedom…

As the U.S-China trade confrontation continues, China is running out of dollars.  Beijing is burning through cash to prop up its manufacturing industries; and the currency devaluation only exacerbates the problem.  A weak Yuan, makes their exports cheap; but China is an economy of dependency, and relies upon dollars to pay bills.

Against this growing internal financial crisis, videos seem to confirm Chinese military moving into regions around Hong Kong as protests continue.  Hong Kong nationals staged a three-day protest at Hong Kong’s international airport to draw attention to their plight.

.

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Hong Kong police fired tear gas at demonstrators in the working class district of Sham Shui Po on Sunday, as yet another day of protest marches turned into a confrontation between police and activists.

Ten straight weekends of increasingly violent protests have plunged Hong Kong into its most serious political crisis in decades, posing a challenge to the central government in Beijing.(link)

Many voices in the west have forgotten the lessons from Tienanmen Square, when the central Chinese government used the Mongolian army regulars to gain control over the protests. The authoritarian Chinese government is communist at its central core; despite the party leadership’s corruption and capitalistic wealth.

Videos show the Chinese military are moving into Hong Kong to position themselves against those voices who are demanding the region remain a free and autonomous open society.

    Is this about to happen in HK the “big ugly” Trump talked about? The storm coming? This will indeed upend the entire deep state. If will be a yuge storm. The coup attempt we just had will seem like a small skirmish. And the coup plotters may get taken up by this international big ugly. COC caught up in it. Politicians everywhere.

      I am here in HK right now and have pretty much witnessed this protest from the start 10 weeks ago. It actually started much earlier back in January when students started marching in front of City hall, but the intensity has turned up a notched since Carrie Lam and her thugs started implementing thuggish tactics against the protestors.

      Me and my family live in Macau, where I go to on the weekends as I return to HK on the weekdays to work. Last week I was refused entry into HK for the first time without explanation with a US passport.

      This entire trade dispute with China and the riots are compounding things even more to adverse situation, and has hit me really hard financially. Most of my clients come from mainland China, and now they will not travel to HK due to the violence that has broken out! Currently I am stuck and looking for options to stop the bleeding. By the grace of God is how I am surviving right now!

      I live in Tsim Sha Suai where a lot of tourist come to shop. The last couple of weeks the malls have become like ghost towns and what is normally crowded streets in places like here and Central, walking down one today is rather strange not having to bump into people.

      The tourist industry has been hit the hardest, as now other businesses are becoming ill affected by the politics and current intensity being played out.

      The subway stations are littered with plastered propaganda such as “China go Home”. ” Hong Kong is not China! along with thousands of sticky notes of messages about independence, democracy, and human rights.

      Last week while riding the subway, the thoughts of terrorism suddenly entered my mind as this city is vulnerable and now have to seriously consider my options to get out of here as the feelings are starting to become more intense.

      Just to be clear on the economic front, I am not complaining what Trump is doing in relation to China, in fact I support it as it needs to happen and my attitude is “it is what it is” and we all make sacrifices along the way. I am feeling the effects in what I thought I wouldn’t affect me but due to the protests it is exacerbating the economic issue here in HK that is directly having an affect on me and my family! So I ask believers here to pray for me, for my safety and to find a solution to get me and my family out soon!

      Thanks

        I am praying for Hong Kong and China.

        From my reading I get the impression the following true but can you confirm? It’s for my understanding and ***prayer!***

        1) Most protesters know they cannot win this and it will end with massacre. They carry last letters in their pockets.
        2) They know freedom in Hong Kong is bust and Xi wants domination NOW! He is not going to wait nor compromise.
        3) The plan is not to win – they can’t – but to make the CCP and Xi lose by forcing Xi’s hand so he cannot handle the economic and political backlash of the massacre when China has too many problems on too many fronts. The only hope the protestors have is that mainland China economically collapses and is finally Communism thrown out by a starving people. After all, Xi promised them more wealth at the cost of everything else.

        What’s your take on this? Had I read things wrong?

        Note: I live in SE Asia, far from China I accept but I live in a total ethnic Chinese bubble and my clients are ALL ethnic Chinese. So this is vaguely relevant to me.
        I am praying on this and I will send up some for your personally like NOW!

        Have faith. I have been driven into dust before, stayed faithful and after decades of endurance and grief, have been raised up and protected quite miraculously.

            Er, the data and history suggests Xi us going to crash down HARD. So if you can get out I suggest you do so.
            I live in Indonesia now in an ethnic Chinese bubble. It really is a bubble! Technically getting residency permits is all but impossible but it has opened up for those setting up their own business and there are masses of Chinese coming here somehow!! If you have any connections with the Chinese in Indonesia they might help. I dunno. Here the Chinese look out for other Chinese. If you have any connections and are willing to set up for yourself – forget a work permit now, that’s a non-starter – you might be able to get very well settled.
            Of course, there may be better and easier options. Indonesia is actually pretty peaceful and developing nicely. It is presented as an islamic hellhole which it is not. Everyone focuses on Aceh which is as much part of mainland Indonesia as Aceh and also has it’s own -insane Sharia- system and assumes Indonesia is like Aceh.
            And it depends in your calling. For decades God called me to ensure in the atheistic UK were I was pretty much outcast. It was virtually sheer endurance and I God would not let me move! But eventually he led me out here and it’s been blessing ever since. We have to be obedient and humble before Him. Sometimes He protects and sometimes He prepares a martyrs crown and gives strength for the calling. So you gotta pray and LISTEN to Him.

            On June 9, 1898, the British under Queen Victoria brokered a 99-year lease agreement for the use of Hong Kong after China lost a series of wars fought over the British trade in tea and opium.

            In 1984, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Chinese Premier Zhao Ziyang negotiated the underlying plan for the lease to end, such that Hong Kong would remain a semi-autonomous region for a 50-year period after the lease ended.

            The lease ended on July 1, 1997, and since then tensions between the democratically-minded Hong Kong population and the PRC have continued, although Hong Kong remains functionally separate from the Chinese mainland.

            The last time I was there was prior to the British taking down the Union Jack flag. There were English policemen on the streets as well as Hong Kong Chinese policemen.

            The Chinese policemen who spoke English had a special marking on their uniform as an indication that they spoke English.

            There was a tremendous advantage to China to leave Hong Kong as it was as it was a very rich capitalist city that did billions of dollars in trade. Why the Chinese would upset that is a real mystery. They will be the losers.

            Maybe one needs to look a little deeper into why this is happening. Maybe one needs to look at who runs China’s banking. That my friends is the Rothschild family. Those evil SOB’s have started wars and controlled the rise and fall of countries since the time of Napoleon.

          Exactly correct, and make no mistake, Hong Kong’s financial prospects are the ONLY thing Xi and the Chicoms care about; Xi could not care less about either the people’s well being, or their fate. The ruthless, brutal Xi, and his allies in our very own U.S. Congress, will use the crisis as a weapon against President Trump.

          Hong Kong is the goose that lays the golden eggs, and Xi must realize that it is Hong Kong’s history of freedom and human rights, which were introduced during British colonial governance, that created the conditions for capitalism to produce such great wealth. Why would the Chicoms risk killing the oh, so valuable Goose, by sending the PLA into Hong Kong to create a live satellite feed of Tiananmen Square Redux playing on every television in the world?

          They must really be scared of something……perhaps President Trump’s tariffs are hurting them much worse than they are admitting, and are afraid a financial collapse could spark another Chinese revolution? The whole world would mourn such an event, but for very different reasons than Xi and his communist murderers. They would only be concerned with the loss of their personal fortunes, maybe their individual lives if they couldn’t sneak out, but the last revolution cost more than 60 million Chinese lives…..and that was a low-ball estimate.

    As an outsider “looking in” at Hong Kong and the potential for social unrest spreading to the “Main Land”, I think social/political unrest has a different perspective for Chinese familiar with their history than for Westerners watching from the side lines. Very, very recent history for the Chinese, ie. 150 years, 1850-1867, Taiping Revolt “Christian”, Dungan Revolt, Muslim 100 million (?) dead. Chinese Civil War 10-20 million dead, “Great Leap Forward” 40-50 million dead, Cultural Revolution 5-10 dead (?).

    The World was horrified with Tian’anmen, 20,000 dead (?); what will be the response if a revolt against the CCP results in more typical numbers of casualties, ie. in the tens of millions dead?

    There are some similarities to the Tiananmen Square protests but mostly differences. A regrettable similarity will likely be the forced end to the protests and the end of their dream of negotiating freedom via protests with a Communist Dictatorship. However, I didn’t notice any tanks in the long line of troop trucks so they might be planning to end the protests in a slightly less bloody way. But I wouldn’t count on it. In the mind of Chairman Xi Ping, any “freedoms” the HK and Chinese people enjoy are approved by the Chairman or Supreme Leader and his minions. Crazy Bernie’s dream job.

    I wish the people of HK success but it is not likely. Folding to the protesters would be self destructive for the Chinese Communist Party. The calls for Trump to intervene are understandable but it could definitely lead to nuclear war if the USA interferes significantly in China’s internal affairs. The transfer of Imperial Britain’s Hong Kong back to China on July 1st 1997, was an official and lawful handover of a British Colony to China via the “Sino-British Joint Declaration on the Question of Hong Kong” which was signed by the heads of the two governments in Dec 1984.

    It should not be surprising that the “Deal Breaker” Chinese Communist leadership is breaking the terms of the HK handover but it was the British that did it and signed it and are therefore responsible for any deviations. “The agreement stipulated that under Chinese rule the HKSAR would enjoy a high degree of autonomy, except in matters of foreign relations and defense, and that the social and economic systems as well as the lifestyle in Hong Kong would remain unchanged” until 2047.

    This is a British deal and problem. P Trump has enough on his plate including the Iran Deal aftermath and North Korea. Let Boris lead the way.

    Note: HK became a British Colony after the Qing Dynasty lost the Opium War (started in part over imbalanced trade with China) to England in 1842. The Chinese were forced to sign over HK to the British as part of the “peace deal.” These were the same type of Imperial British Navy and soldiers that the patriots of the USA threw out of the colonies in 1783. History is read differently on the winning and losing sides.

      It is sad but laughable that this promise by a communist government was as beluevable as the paper waved by Neville Chamberlain

    During the early 1970’s Hong Kong and Kowloon were a wonderful to visit. Visited there 2 times while in the 1970’s and 1 time about a month before it got taken over by the commies.
    Things there were cheep and plentiful. It was one of the best ports to visit while bombing nam.
    Now with the commies taking it over from the British, it has turned into a crap hole like all the other ports that are run by libturds.
    china really screwed the pooch on this port.
    Really a crying obscene shame.

    I kinda hate to ask but I have been trying to get verification – after trying to get lotsa prayer moving – and I can see no work from the Hong Kong Free press or anyone else confirming the arrival of armed forces. I know the PLA is stationed in Hong Kong already though, a full crack down would require more forces, I know.
    But people are stating that the video footage is not of Hong Kong at all but mainland China itself.
    If there was any hint of a real invasion of Hong Kong the British “Daily Express” would be all over it with the title “World War 3” on every slight between or withing nations.
    Do we have any verification here?
    Thanks.

    All of the corporations using China as their production base should move out when china begins to target the people of Hong Kong for special action. This is also a warning to Taiwan that your freedom is only possible because of China’s restraint.

    This is how Bejing is going to justify “lethal force;” by identifying the protesters as terrorists: https://www.scmp.com/news/china/politics/article/3022438/beijing-warns-signs-terrorism-violent-unrest-hong-kong

    It looks pretty easy for the Chinese military to come in and stomp these young protestors. It’s a safe bet that personal firearms are not allowed. Which, in my opinion makes these officers pansies. This is why the left want weapons. This would never fly in the US. At a certain point there would be a massive response from we armed citizen militia. Communists are chickenshits.

    How will they try to blame Pres. Trump for this? If they can’t, do they really want to show how brutal China is?
    How can the world continue to trade with a murderous communist regime that is willing to massacre its own people? This is the time to highlight what China is all about!!!

    World wide sanctioning of China business if they do this. Make this the choice for all countries. Choose freedom or choose tyranny.

    This is NOT just China. Look at Paris and the thuggery that Napoleon wannabe – Macron, has turned loose on HIS people! The world is craving freedom once again. The EU is crumbling under the weight of its own bureaucracy and is going to come crashing down like a house of cards without warning (remember the USSR and the Berlin Wall). China is in DIRE economic straits and Trump is waging a masterful war on them, using sanctions instead of bullets and missiles. HK is, at best going to exacerbate it and at worst, kick the brick out from under the tire and send it careening down the hill.

    I am reminded by a friend that we (in the West) speak of “The Chinese People” but, in reality, there is no such thing. It is a melange of various tribal, ethnic, cultural, religious and familial groups, all of whom are competing against each other for a share of an ever shrinking pie. They are always one rice bowl away from removing “The Will of Heaven” from the emperor (Or “President for Life” in Communist New Speak).

    XI and company have never had to confront a master negotiator like DJT. He continually vociferously praises Xi while using economics to force him to acquiesce to actual “Fair Trade”. This has never happened before and Xi and ministers have no idea how to deal with it. Trump cannot involve himself in HK in any material way less he be seen to “interfere in Chinese Internal Affairs”, BUT he can force XI to weigh the FINANCIAL impacts of his actions. Again, remember that Trump is using sanctions more effectively than bombs or bullets could ever provide.

    If there’s one thing I’ve learned since Donald Trump has been elected is his policy of attacking funding/resources of bad actors. In China, he’s going after their funds in order to squeeze them into reconsidering their political policies/direction. He is also cutting funding sources for many Democratic terrorist groups and think tanks. Money is the mothers milk of everything. Cut off the grant money for climate change studies and start funding useful studies and all of a sudden the dynamic changes. Dems have been using public funds for their progressive movement for a long time and the President is well on his way to taking away their sources of public funding. That’s how he will bring the Chinese back to the negotiating table. He just said he’s not ready to make a deal. China needs to be tenderized a little more economically and then the deal will be made. MAGA…

    This short clip was posted on Utube-Goggle early in July.

    It appears as though mainland Chinese forces have been moving stealthily into HK for some time now in preparation for a violent blowback against the freedom protestors. Once fully in place expect a formal “request for China’s help” from the established leadership in HK. That could likely trigger a full scale crackdown accompanied by media silence & localized internet blackout.

    I guess the communists not only want to hasten the the relocation of foreign manufacturing to other countries but also eviscerate their banking and tourism industry.

    The ruthlessness of communism is eclipsed only by it’s selfish stupidity!

  40. I think China is willing to pay any price if it means bending Hong Kong to their will as long as they believe it will preserve their power.
