With the 1.7mil turnout in #HK today, the total number of demonstrators in anti-extradition/anti-govt protests has now surpassed the total population of HK:
So far, 7,564,440 demonstrators have participated in 61 demonstrations.
Astounding: Where else in history have you had the total number of participants in demonstrations exceed the size of the total population where the demonstrations occurred? #HK is truly in a class of its own.
The 1.7mil turnout today is even bigger than the 1.03mil turnout at the 1st mass march on #June9 & rivalled the 2mil on #June16. If anything, in the past 2 months, the movement's grown stronger.

#HK CRACKDOWN WATCH UPDATE: Of the 49 arrested in Sheung Wan on #July28, on July 31, 44 were charged w 'riot' & 1 w illegal possession of an offensive weapon. Of the 4 others, 2 were released on bail & 2 released unconditionally.
bit.ly/2M67fGu
Before these 45, only 1 of the 199 arrested in relation to #HK protests had reportedly been charged. The 44 'riot' charges is a very significant development. It is clearly part of the #CCP & #HK govt & police strategy for ending the 8-weeks-long protests:
First, ban as many protests as possible (2 so far). Second, #CCP, #HK govt & police speak out in unison about 'violence', 'rule of law' & 'the bottom line'. Third, arrest people in large numbers & immediately charge them with serious offenses w potential long prison sentences.

1\3 wsj.com/articles/secre… | #CCP continues to project naval influence in SE Asia by targeting corrupt authoritarian gov'ts backed by Chinese loans & the CCP's diplomatic clout. Together, Cambodian facilities & China's military outposts in the South China Sea would create 2\
2\3 a triangular perimeter controlled by Beijing that effectively boxes in all of mainland Southeast Asia. This threatens the independence of Taiwan, making it very difficult for the U.S. to support Taiwan if Beijing decides to attack and overtake the Island #FreeHongKong #Taiwan
3/3 At a time when #HongKongProtests demonstrate the demands of the people seeking #Democracy & freedom from Communist repression, this presents an acute threat to the Independence enjoyed by the people of Taiwan and MUST NOT BE IGNORED. #China #Cambodia #Vietnam @BaldingsWorld

Not surprising that #China‘s lying about its demographic data. We can’t trust the #CCP’s numbers. Ex.: Communist authorities say #Uyghurs’ population numbers ~10M, yet #Uighurs routinely insist to me that #EastTurkistan’s (“#Xinjiang’s”) overall Turkic pop. is 2x to 3x that (!)…
… if that’s any truth to that, then the actual numbers of detained persons in #EastTurkistan could be even *higher* than estimated (as estimates that “1 out of every X number of people are detained” would be skewed if we‘re starting by underestimating the base population)…
… those types of estimates tend to come about by looking at the number of people “missing” from everyday places, like markets. The other types of estimates come from looking at the theoretical holding capacities of detention facilities, but these estimates are problematic, too…

1/3 #GuoWengui: "Guo is an intriguingly divisive figure even among exiled dissidents and staunch critics of the Chinese government," Breitbart reported in 2017. #MilesKwok breitbart.com/asia/2018/01/1…
2/3 #GuoWengui "Some of them worry he is sucking away media oxygen from more serious critics of the regime, or even that he is a Chinese government plant intended to discredit dissidents by throwing around wild charges and making them look foolish." #MilesKwok
3/3 #GuoWengui "Others see him as their best chance to make themselves heard, thanks to his wealth, celebrity, and network of connections. In the interests of full disclosure, one of those connections is with former Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steve Bannon." #MilesKwok

Occam's Razor perspective indicates that such complexity is doubtful.

My 1st Master's degree focused on Chinese Intel & Military Ops under a spook & a now-retired general. I researched & wrote on Huawei intensively.

US MIC & #DeepState r in a death-struggle w/ #PRC #CCP #PLA &
despite all of the puffery of the strength of our military, the PRC is gaining more rapidly in power than the US. #DeepState & US MIC are in a pretty tough fight.

We also have to worry about Russia (and Iran) siding with China should a conflict develop between US & PRC
I wrote this back in August of 2016, regarding the danger of a China-Iran-Russia, tripartite military alliance.

The 340 page dissertation I did for my Ph.D. focused on Chinese military and industrial operations.

Utterly scurrilous: This (imposed) leader of #HK has hidden from press & public since June 18 while the city's undergone one of the biggest crises in its history. Then she calls a sudden 4am press con w the police commissioner... news.rthk.hk/rthk/en/compon…
...both of whom should resign to take responsible for the crisis into which they pitched the city, and instead she attacks people who have been trying to meet her for weeks, and yet she's refused to meet them. Astounding. As recently as yesterday...
...the very moderate Legco pro-democracy leaders were trying to meet her to defuse the situation, and she refused, as she has repeatedly throughout the crisis. She says she wants to listen to voices, but won't meet anyone. Now this person smells an opportunity to shift focus...

.#GuoWengui objects to witnesses against him who defend @XiaYeliang. Comrade Standing Lord files legal complaints against @milpitas95035, Xianmin Xiong, Weican Ming & me, claiming we have "no knowledge of any of the facts". We are to testify next week in federal court. #MilesKwok
@XiaYeliang @milpitas95035 Correction: Proper spelling in English is Weican Meng.

Here’s a level of analysis few will be interested in, but #MagnitskyAct sanctions on #Russia have benefitted #China’s strategic interests the most. No doubt, @MFA_Russia @RusEmbUSA are probably only starting to realize that #HSBC — the #HongKong-#Shanghai Banking Corp. — is/was…

"#GuoWengui ... said in an interview that he has close ties to the Ministry of State Security (MSS), the civilian intelligence service, and the military spy service of the People's Liberation Army (PLA)." #China #MilesKwok freebeacon.com/national-secur…
"'I know the Chinese spy system very, very well,' Guo said .... 'I have information about very minute details about how it operates.'"

Then why hasn't #GuoWengui exposed the Chinese spy system the way he wants to expose rival #CCP factions? #China #MilesKwok

Struck up a convo w/ what I suspect was a young IC recruit yesterday. They lived abroad in #China, spoke Chinese, called it “#Xinjiang” (not #EastTurkistan), insisted the @USNavy could never challenge the #PLA Navy in the SCS, that the Chinese have no interest in Democracy. 1/3
… & that #China’s rise poses no imminent threat to America. “So you don’t think the #CCP has a plan to supplant the US as the world’s dominant superpower?” “Not in my lifetime,” they insisted. “Really,” I asked, “not even by 2049?” They responding unblinkingly, “oh, no way!” 2/3
… if these are the kind of denialist, can’t-do-attitude types certain intel agencies are now scraping from the bottom of the Ivy League barrel, perhaps #China really will win. Disheartened to see bright young people buy in to orthodox thought that’s been consistently wrong. 3/3

Calls for strikes & protests for June 12th in #HongKong. That's when the extradition bill is scheduled for a second reading. Carrie Lam, the HK head of government is under pressure to resign. She is doing the bidding of #China's #CCP government.
HK leader Carrie Lam says the extradition bill was not proposed by Beijing. "We are doing it," she says. Not true. She is China's stooge in H.K. Why HK people elected these leaders? It's because China has veto power over the candidates. Only pro #China candidates can run.

I missed it when #China’s Embassy in #Afghanistan tweeted this two months ago, but it’s very interesting to see the #CCP fretting about #PanTurkism & #PanIslamism. The former would be a bulwark against Chinese expansionism into #CentralAsia, while the latter would be a disaster…
… for all of humanity. #China’s lucky in the sense that #Turkey’s #Erdogan isn’t a true pan-Turkist, despite his attempts to style himself as some kind of neo-Ottomanist. His alignment with #Iran’s oppressive regime, which is funded by Chinese oil purchases…
… is completely antithetical to the ideaology of #PanTurkism, as #Tehran treats the Turkic #Azeris/#Azerbaijan’is living in #Iran terribly, taking their taxes & neglecting areas where they’re a majority. #Erdogan’s ideology isn’t pure or consistent. It’s merely self-serving.

When #China Massacred Its Own People - “Lies written in ink cannot disguise facts written in blood.” nytimes.com/2019/06/01/opi…
Thirty years ago in the spring of 1989, as the world’s most populous country teetered on the edge of freedom, I received a late-night phone call in my apartment in Beijing: The Chinese Army was invading its own capital.
Students made roads impassable by setting up barricades to block the army, so I got on my bicycle & pedaled furiously toward the gunfire. I reached Tiananmen Square shortly before the army & I watched as soldiers fired their automatic weapons directly at the crowd that I was in.

The book to read for the 30th anniversary of the #June4 #TiananmenMassacre is @liaoyiwu1's Bullets & Opium about the ordinary people imprisoned in the crackdown's aftermath. Here's an excerpt. #六四30 qz.com/1593708/bullet…

Why‘s @KimDotcom so pro-#China? Why‘s @Snowden not critical of #Beijing? There seems to be a red thread tying both to #HongKong. Of that clique, only @WikiLeaks#Assange has been vocally anti-#CCP. Now, after #INAPapers show @Lenin was bribed by China’s #Sinohidro, he’s gagged.
… another oddity at the nexus of the #Ecuador/#UK/#Assange standoff: #Manafort was lobbying on behalf of #China’s efforts to “invest” in Ecuador’s grid & “trade” Assange. Now we find out from #INAPapers that Presidenté #Moreno was bribed by #Sinohydro. 🤔
… is it possible that #China’s man, #Manafort, was working a multipartite deal — b/t #China/#Ecuador/#UK/#USA — to trade #WikiLeaks#Assange, possibly working bilaterally so as to keep each of the counterparties in the dark about the “full deal?”

“Win-win-win-win” cooperation?

#China will attempt a forceful unification with #Taiwan by 2021, the centenary of the Chinese Communist Party. Xi's grand dream of national rejuvenation entails unifying all that #CCP considers Chinese lands, especially Taiwan.

This THREAD looks at this potential scenario.
The legitimacy of the #CCP regime under Xi is based on the twin pillars of economic growth and nationalism. For the party-state, unifying the mainland and Taiwan is critical to its aspirations of national rejuvenation and erasure of national humiliation.
Why would PRC force a unification as early as 2021? 1) 2021 is the centenary of the #CCP; anniversaries and dates have massive symbolic importance in China's political culture. 2) Xi wants unification to be part of his legacy. This is the only way that he can outshine #Mao.
