Hong Kong: Next prediction

I got this right.

Last week, in HK: Who Beijing really blames for the protests and riots, I wrote

Morocco Mole (Secret Squirrel’s side-kick) says that his second cousin twice removed in the CCP Central Committee says that Xi is planning to make these tycoons make big public donations (billions of dollars) to the HK govt which will use the money to do things like build cheap (not “affordable”) public housing. Remember you read of this first here.

On Saturday, the People’s Daily (China’s ST) demanded that the HK tycoons show their sincerity instead of “hoarding land for profit and earning every last penny”. All in all, there were separate editorials in three major constructive, nation-building state-owned media outlets attacking the property tycoons. They all suggested that HK authorities seize undeveloped land and use it to build more housing. Fyi, they are so powerful that the HK govt was planning to reclaim land from the sea to build public housing on, because the tycoons did not want building on vacant land state land.

My next prediction is that before 1 October, the tycoons will make a huge gesture and, for them expensive, on cheap housing to placate Beijing and, hopefully, the protesters. Remember that 1st October is an important date in Xi’s calender.

On that day, Beijing will be hoping to project an image of national strength and unity with a military parade through the city to mark 70 years since the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/09/14/asia/china-hong-kong-october-1-intl-hnk/index.html

And the HK protesters are planning a big do to spoil Xi’s big day in Beijing. They aim to grab the attention of the ang moh media who live by “If it bleeds, it leads”, preferring to showing scenes of violence rather than boring march-pasts of of tanks and missiles.

Financial aspects of protests

Attempt to bring down HK’s financial system fails: yet again

Why HSBC is really Hongkong Bank

Tourim is 40% down because mainlanders are not coming and Swiss cos are affected.

Meanwhile, both sides are aware of the 800-pound gorilla in the room: US Cavalry riding to rescue HK from chief Xi?

Finally, Who is the superhero of protestors and short-sellers?

    Ha-ha-ha-ha! CI has the incredible knack of continually highlighting small, fading issues like HK over greater global issues like the drone attack attributed to Iran but could be a False Flag. The attack on Saudi’s oilfields that could affect the world oil prices & incite war tensions in the Middle East. Ironically, the recent movies, “Spiderman: Far from Home” & “Angel Has Fallen” featured a Central theme on drone technology & their deep warfare implications. Life replicates Art!

    CI is like a relentless Pitbull puppy when latching his jaws upon a target, simply refuses to let go even as the target goes limp. Move on, CI!

    Before CI posted this pointer, did he saw my TRE comment 2 days earlier of same denunciation from Ren Zheng Fei?

    Ren Zheng Fei, Huawei founder: First, I think there are very few success stories where public companies become strong and big. Capital tends to be greedy. Whenever there is an immediate interest, capital tends to take it away, and that would certainly compromise the long-term pursuit of ideals.

    Pansy Ho and Li KaShing is on the opposite of the divide on the SOCIAL VANDALISM now ongoing in HK – the former alleged indoctrination of protestors and the latter pleading for motherly “mercy” treatment of protestors.

    Can you possibly indoctrinate professionals like acccountants, lawyers, pilots, teachers, bankers and now healthcare professionals joining the SOCIAL VANDALISM?

    What if the priest, nuns, monks and divine preachers of all denomination join the quarrels?

    THE FINAL TRUTH IS THIS – WHEN LIES, THIEVERY OF ECONOMIC VANDALISM AND POLITICAL OPPRESSION AND PROPAGANDA SWING THE OUTCOME ONE WAY FOR 50 YEARS OR LONGER AND NOW EXPOSED FOR ITS FULL REALITY, the pendulum will definitely (in my informed (even if fallible) opinion WILL SWING IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, INESCAPABLY.

    Nobody is a fool forever and a willing fool forever, not even slaves of economic vandalism.

    ECONOMIC VANDALISM IS NOW RESPONDED IN HONG KONG WITH SOCIAL VANDALISM AND MAINSTREAM HONGKONGERS JOINED IN.

    @ Rabble-rouser
    From the early days of this administration, from Michael Flynn, Nikki Haley, and Mike Pence putting North Korea “On Notice” again and again, to Nikki Haley “Taking Names” at the U.N., to DJT threatening “Fire and Fury” tough talk, bloviating, and bravado has been the only real diplomatic tactic of this administration. The world now realizes these words have no meaning. I believe Nikki Haley used “locked and loaded” on occasion as well.

    “Locked and loaded” is a particularly loaded code for wartime preparations and there is no reason that America should meddle in Saudi Arabia’s foreign affairs. It’s difficult to imagine that their allies would side with a Washington air strike against the ayatollahs.

    IMHO, the Houthi’s have the strongest motive to attack Saudi oil refineries—to respond to the Saudi bombing of Yemeni infrastructure and civilian areas, the embargo that is causing the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, a war that rises to the level of genocide. The Iranian’s may be providing technology and training to the Houthi’s, though no one has provided proof, but the U.S. is providing the military equipment that is destroying Yemen.

    Moreover, Trump provoked this crisis by withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, imposing an international embargo on Iran, and giving Israel and Saudi Arabia a free hand to threaten Iran. While Trump does not want war, he has no analysis, strategy, competence, or smarts, while Netanyahu and MBS do. It’s not clear if Trump understands war with Iran would make Iraq and Afghanistan look like skirmishes, would cause a global recession, and casualties would tank any possibility he could win in 2020.

    Years of pent-up fury over the corrosion of Hong Kong’s autonomy, the rigging of the political system, and widening inequality, finally erupted.

    Many young people feel they have no future. They see the economy controlled by a cartel of tycoons in collusion with the government.
    They see no chance of change for the better. The chief executive is not accountable to the citizens of Hong Kong. She is appointed by and answers to China. The legislature is structured in favour of special interests and parties subservient to Beijing, with only half the seats filled by direct elections.

    There’s only change for the worse: booksellers abducted to the mainland in 2016, Beijing’s jurisdiction extended to the express rail terminus a Financial Times journalist expelled, foreigners critical of China denied entry, disrespect for the national anthem to be criminalised, and now protesters and bystanders beaten up while the police look away. The chief executive voice more concern over superficial damage to Beijing’s liaison office by protesters, than serious injuries to innocent people inflicted by thugs befriended by a pro-Beijing legislator.

    With no moral authority to lead counting only on Beijing’s support, Chief Executive Carrie Lam will haplessly muddle through at the expense of 7.4 million people in Hong Kong.

    @ Cynical Investor
    Hong Kong is being assimilated into the PRC and the structures set up by the CPC under Xi. Nothing will stand in the way of that, as there is no power able to counter the CPC in HK. Let that sink in.

    The next test will be Taiwan, and if Taiwan ever needed any demonstration of what will happen if it adopts the ‘One country, Two Systems’ path, then it has it one and a half hours by air SW of Taipei.

    This is Beijing’s plan: If worse comes to worse, treat Hong Kong like Xinjiang Province. Allow the protesters to dismantle Hong Kong, slowly infiltrate the city with propaganda and ideologically correct indoctrination, and wait it out.

    Beijing is willing to isolate HK if necessary, treat it like a pariah state. The only response that will make a difference in HK is to raise the stakes, and keep raising them until Beijing’s patience is lost.

    The catch 22 here is that this will probably require violence from the protesters to bring this dilemma to a conclusion–because that is when Beijing will act. Thus, guerrilla tactics will be necessary. And then HK is lost.

    @ Rabble-rouser
    The 1992 US Hong Kong Policy Act extending more favorable trade terms to HK than otherwise available to mainland China provides US leverage to resolve this crisis diplomatically, if the US chooses to act. As already happened, Hong Kong democracy activist Joshua Wong called on American lawmakers Tuesday to pass legislation requiring annual reviews of the special status that affords the city trade and economic privileges:
    “Beijing should not have it both ways, reaping all the economic benefit of Hong Kong’s standing in the world” amid the “erosion of our freedom,” Wong told a hearing of the bipartisan Congressional-Executive Commission on China.

    China has benefited from this 1992 Act by using HK as a backdoor for conducting its own trade with the US and others. The test questions are whether the Trump administration will employ this leverage in its on again off again trade war with China, and in the event Trump fails to act, whether the US Democrat presidential candidates and Democrat Congressional leadership go public demanding Trump do so. Then we thought economic interdependence would give US the ability to influence these China internally; that, as evidenced by the deteriorating relationships with China and Russia (not to mention Iran!), has also failed.

    Interesting how some politicians in Hong Kong are hoping for the US and Britain to help Hong Kong achieve democracy. What they don’t ask is why Britain never instituted democratic reforms in Hong Kong when they were in charge, which they could easily have done. And why the US never pushed its ally to do so if it cared so much about democracy in Hong Kong. Why now, if they already knew Hong Kong would eventually return to Chinese rule and could have done so 30 years ago?

    Democracy is only a tool to be used to further the national interests of these countries when it suits them. The US fomented the coup in Iran in 1953 to depose the democratically elected government, in order to install the Shah, a dictator under their control. Saudi Arabia, the most undemocratic government in the world, is a US “strategic partner”, and the US supplies the arms they use to suppress dissent.

    If the US government cares so much about democracy in foreign lands, why not start with HK? By making all the noises about democracy and freedom when it clearly couldn’t care less about it, the US is giving China even more reason to think that Hong Kong is being used as a pawn in the great game of global geopolitics.

    In my opinion, these protest serves to get democratic countries like the USA involved in hopes of migrating to these countries via Asylum claim, etc… So its kinda as if these protesters want China to send their troops in so USA can act via sanctions or other trade means. But China already went through Tienanmen square in the 1980s, it knows the consequences of using Troops to deal with such an issue. China is far more integrated with the world economy and uses HK to participate in the world economy which is essentially dominated by the capitalist system favored by the West.
