🚨 I've decided to put together a THREAD of prominent voices for #HongKong from around the word. Start with U.S. politicians. Note how @RepGregSteube is saying (as I read it) the newly-revealed #HK #NationalSecurityLaw will "threaten democracy around the world." 👇👇👇
[2/n] @HawleyMO: "Question now is whether Beijing will use this as a pretext to jail pro-democracy leaders."
[3/n] @RepJimBanks highlights how the #HongKong #NationalSecurityLaw "prohibits 'collusion' w/ foreign govs or institutions, which could target those who've lobbied the U.S. Congress for sanctions."

Ancient #China since at least 1600BC has followed a rule called 天命 or T'ien-ming this accords divine status to all Chinese rulers & extolls them as the son of heaven that have a mandate to rule all land below heaven .
Chinese imperial families used this rule to justify their rule for centuries. That said there was a catch .
The rule specifies that if a ruler is overthrown or the nation suffers natural disasters it is an indication heaven has withdrawn it's support .
The #CCP very cleverly follows only the first part of the diktat but not the 2nd . Following the 2nd would immediately endanger #Xitler while also putting the legacies of his predecessors into doubt.

History Repeats 🤔??
A series...
1. War between China and India that occurred in 1962. Chinese disputed Himalayan border was the main cause of the war. There had been a series of violent border skirmishes between the Army of both countries 🤔
2. Chinese military action became aggressive after India rejected proposed Chinese diplomatic settlements throughout 1960–1962 🤔
3. China re-commenced previously-agreed.. “forward patrols" ... in Ladakh from 30 April 1962. #China finally abandoned all attempts of peaceful resolution on 20 October 1962, and Attacked the territory 😞

A thread on #Galwan treachery of #PLA

Apart from being a watershed moment for #XiJinping's & #CPC's reputation in #China, the PLA's treachery is a big blow to their own morale!

In short : PLA minions were prepared, yet suffered more losses!
Long version : continue reading
1/7
PLA's failed attempt to scare away Indian troops from #GalwanValley coincided with the 67ᵗʰ Birthday of Xi Jingping (15 June). It is evident some sycophant PLA General's plan to please the #CPC Gen Secretary (总书记) backfired and blew in PLA's face.

2/7
Genesis of this issue is believed to be due to PLA temporarily removing a camp on the bend of the Galwan river post de-escalation talks but re-establishing it on 14 Jun. Col Santosh Babu, Commanding Officer led a patrol on 15 Jun, but to his dismay finding belligerent troops!3/7

Unacceptable event

RED LINE CROSSED

It has potential to derail India China relations

@China_Amb_India your pronouncements of friendship are hollow

#XiJinping is on self destruct mission #CCPChina is most destructive & unholy regime

@MFA_China @SpokespersonCHN
Inexplicable conduct

3 possibilities

- #XiJinping is not in control of #PLA in internecine conflict between factions

Or

- #WuhanCoronavirus Pandemic has caused vacancies ( Death) succession struggle at all levels

Or

- Engaging external enemies to forge internal unity
India needs to

- Freeze out China in all aspects

- #MirrorApproach all aspects Military, Trade, Diplomatically & International Fora

To start
- Forge Diplomatic & Trade relations with Taiwan

- Forge Anti China alliances of open Democratic Countries

What are the sources of Chinese conduct in #Ladakh today?China today is global power imbued with a strong sense of nationalism, an obstinate sense of righteousness (without morality) about its whole political, military and economic system..
It sees a world stage, particularly an Asian stage that is devoid of a strong American presence or sustained commitment to check #Chineseadventurism or #expansionism whether on sea or land as existed until recent years: this oxygenates #China..
China is now poised to deploy its military and economic strengths to advance its national interest on multiple fronts in a naked and unhindered way -and its state capacity under #XiJinping has been revved up and given the ‘go’ to act thus ..

1/ Despite foreign doubts and #Hongkongers’ criticism, #NPC just passed #nationalsecuritylegislation. # China unilaterally imposes the law with its legislation entirely under a black box, with no legislative scrutiny and public consultation.
2/ Today’s decision is a direct assault on the will of #HKers. China is scrapping its promise of autonomy under the Joint Declaration, a legally binding international treaty, & burying 1Country2System when a #secretpolice agency can enforce #China’s laws within territory of HK.
3/ Up to now, #Beijing loyalists keep downplaying the adverse impacts on HK’s judicial independence & civil liberties. Under similar law in China, people seeking justice for #TiananmenMassacre, supporting HKProtest were sentenced to jail. It might kill HK’s democratic movements.

Why are they all involved in HIV Aids programs?

Sterilization programs.
Good deeds = mineral rights, land rights, energy rights.

Constant reseach funding from Usaid, Imf, civilians etc for vaccines and medicines that never cure only prolong death, which means prolonged meds = $

The provocation is because India thwarted dragon march by amending #FDI act preventing takeover of Indian entities

This appears to be an appalling set of lies. @derspiegel claims China's #XiJinping called @WHO DG @Tedros on January 21 & asked him to basically lie about the #COVID19 sitn, delay declaring a global ER and make no mention of human2hu trans in Wuhan.

The @DerSpiegel article was posted earlier today, but seems to have been pulled down, possibly due to this @WHO counter:
"Der Spiegel reports of a January 21, 2020, telephone conversation between D-G Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus & Pres Xi Jingping of China are unfounded.."

Across the world, #China's PR strategy is detonating

Under #XiJinping, China has embraced angry idiocy as the cornerstone of its #coronavirus public relations strategy

Furious that the world rightly blames it for the pandemic, the regime is lashing out.
washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/chinas…
The ruling Communist Party simply can't understand why the international community won't just thank China for its shoddy personal protective equipment exports, absolve Beijing of its obvious culpability for the crisis, and forgive Xi's epidemic of ensuing deceptions.
For one thing, there is China's threat to cut off all trade relations with Australia if the government in Canberra keeps pushing for an international inquiry into the coronavirus's origins. Australia has responded robustly, pledging that it won't give in to blackmail.

@RStephani4 @goww8 @davereaboi 1) I don't blame you. Here are some of Guo's exact quotes from his August 26, 2017 letter to Xi Jinping, translated into English, and entered as evidence in federal court:

"I understand and accept all of your directives and requirements leading to settling the matter." [more]
@RStephani4 @goww8 @davereaboi 2) Guo Wengui to Xi Jinping, in third person, August 26, 2017: "In order to carry out your instruction better, I pray that you clarify what Wengui [is] not allowed to speak out and what Wengui [is] permitted to do."

Well isn't that special! There are Americans at @WHO! And they communicated "real-time information" to the the U.S. Specifically, they said about #CommieVirus-19 that . . . well, somehow, there isn't a word about the information passed.

Of course, there are a few thing we know.
We know that #RedChina first detected the cases in November. We know that on Dec. 5th they had a case indicating human-to-human transmission. We know that by Dec. 25th medical staff in two hospitals seemed to be coming down with the disease, that on the 30th Dr. Li Wenliang
was warning fellow physicians to take precautions against a disease that spread human-to-human like SARS, and that on Dec. 31st, #China finally contacted @WHO—and lied to that organization, saying there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission.

#China's President Feeling The Pressure From Dissent in Own Party

An open letter circulating online since last week calls for an emergency, expanded meeting of the Politburo to discuss "Xi's issues" and to decide if he should step down
rfa.org/english/news/c…
The letter says Xi's handling of the coronavirus epidemic should be discussed, but also the trade war with the U.S. and his fueling of mistrust of China in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
The letter was shared to WeChat by Chen Ping, founder of Hong Kong-based broadcaster SunTV, according to Deutsche Welle and Radio Taiwan International.

Chen wrote in a WeChat post: "I saw it in a WeChat group, and I felt that it was moderate and rational, so I reposted it."

#THREAD: #WHO Director Tedros Ghebreyesus won his 2017 election with #China’s backing

Tedros gives cover for China’s propaganda denying responsibility for the outbreak

Tedros praised China’s “transparency” - said China’s response was a model for others
dailycaller.com/2020/03/22/who…
Tedros is the first-ever WHO chief not to be a medical doctor and was accused of covering up three different cholera epidemics as Ethiopia’s health minister.
Despite all evidence to the contrary, Chinese authorities are weaving a false counternarrative in which China was actually the victim of a foreign virus that it quickly moved to contain. And the WHO is helping them do it.

bitterwinter.org/de-sinicizing-…
On March 9 the left-wing Catholic daily La Croix International (which is normally far from being hostile to China) published an investigative report citing confidential instructions sent to Chinese embassies and fellow travelers around the world.
They were asked persuade those favorable to China never to mention the Chinese origin of the virus, and to insist that “while the virus severely hit Wuhan, where it really originally came from is unknown. We are conducting new studies to locate the virus’ true origin.”
