When papa is gone, boy PM screwed up big time

The country was in a roll. Economy was doing well, Chinese tourists poured in dollars to boost up the economy. Relationship with China was excellent. His papa did a good job and was treasured by China as a good old friend for defying American pressure to establish diplomatic relations with China. Trade with China was growing and more and more trade missions were making their ways to Beijing. People to people relations between the two countries were very good.

Then things took a nasty turn for the worse and everything collapsed right before his eyes. All the goodwill developed by his father went up in smokes. All because the Americans flattered him and requested his help to fix China. And he stupidly fell into the trap of the Americans, and went blindly to fix China pretending that it was all about the rule of law. Canada is a rule of law country. Everything operates under the rule of law, ie, China has no law, disregard of rule law, a lawless country.

While the boy PM was only in office for a few years, the honeymoon suddenly was over. His popularity with the people plunged. Now the citizens are cursing at him for his stupidity. American's fight with China has nothing to do with his country. Now, for arresting Huawei's CFO, Canada's relation with China is rock bottom. Three Canadians were arrested in China in retaliation to the arrest of Meng. The Canadians are in disgust, lamenting that if only he is half as good as his father, Canada would not be in this shit and gaining nothing perhaps maybe a pat on the shoulder by Trump or an invite for tea in the White House.

Actually cannot entirely blame this empty head boy PM for the mess. Of all the people he had to listen to the girly FM who is equally another nut case, not knowing what realpolitik is all about. America is the Number One super power, good to curry the favour of the Americans to fix China. And thinking that using the catchphrase 'rule of law' would save her skin and Canada. Canada is so innocent, Canada is just following the rule of law, a rule of law country. KNN dunno who taught them this stupid catchphrase.

Whither Canada, still stubbornly refusing to acknowledge their stupidity and release Meng immediately thinking that they could get away with it with the Americans behind their back. Wait for China to arrest Canadian number 4, and more Canadians not coming home for Christmas or the New Year because of the stupidity of the boy PM and empty head girly FM.

Thank you very much for your stupidity. The papa must be turning in his grave. The two children still would not want to admit that they have been made a fool of by Trump and would not want to walk away from the silly mistake that had nothing to do with Canada. It was a clear case of not wanting to mind their own business and now with feet stuck deeply in shit. This is a case of having nothing to do and put the fingers into a hornet's nest thinking it is so clever and so fun.

Racist indictment of a small bank during the subprime crisis
The causes of the subprime crisis in 2008/9 were very clear by now and how leniently the big US banks were treated by the US govt. No one goes to jail. No big banks were indicted. Yes, all the American banks were treated with special care like they were family despite the huge fraudulent packaging of foul property products and sold to the public.
There was one incident that very few people outside the USA heard off involving the abusive indictment of a small local bank in New York for subprime crimes. 182 charges were slammed at this small bank as if it was the main cause of the subprime crisis. Why? The bank was owned by a small group of American Chinese operating in the Chinatown district of New York.
Here are some of the comments in Wikipedia about this racist indictment of a small Chinese owned bank in the so called rule of law country, the protector of human rights, rights of an individual and democracy. The police charged into the bank and handcuffed all the employees and linked them onto a long chain before parading them out of the bank like the days of black slavery. White supremacist marshalls rounding up black slaves in chains.

In May 2012, New York prosecutors from the Manhattan District Attorney's office indicted the bank and 19 of its employees on charges of fraud in relation to hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of mortgages that had been sold to Fannie Mae between 2005 and 2010. The bank was accused of falsifying loan applications so that borrowers would qualify for mortgages. Abacus argued that it uncovered the improper behavior itself, reported it to the regulator, and fired the employee in question. It also said it was not involved with the fraudulent packaging of subprime mortgage securities and had a mortgage default rate of 0.5%, a tenth of the national average.

Verdict
The bank, along with its former Chief Credit Officer and its former loan supervisor, were acquitted of all charges brought by the New York prosecutors in a jury trial in New York Supreme Court on June 3 and 4, 2015. (After a long 5 year legal battle defended by the legally trained daughters of Sun Quchen, the founder of the bank).
The aggressive prosecution of Abacus, in contrast to the relatively lenient treatment received by large banks, was questioned and criticized by various media outlets. It was criticized by journalist Matt Taibbi in his 2014 book The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap.
The story is told in Steve James's feature-length documentary Abacus: Small Enough to Jail, which had its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, September 11, 2016. It was broadcast nationally on PBS Frontline on September 12, 2017. Abacus: Small Enough to Jail was nominated for the 2018 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

The above brief showed how racist and discriminatory was the American administration in Washington and how they victimized law abiding minority citizens in fake and fraudulent charges and abusing them with the rule of law and the justice system. This was the only small bank, or the only bank attacked by the American administration for subprime crime when the guilty parties, all white banks were spared from such abuses.
You can read more about the racist white regime in the USA and reflect on how they are dealing with Huawei and the illegal and outrageous arrest and treatment of Meng Wanzhou, even knowing that the whole deal was political but refusing to admit that it was political and refusing to release Meng claiming that they were following the rule of law. It is white man’s rule of law applied to coloured people in the USA and the rest of the world. Such injustice must be put to an end and the hypocrisy of the white men must be shamed in public.

The Indo Pacific theatre of war – A new strategic balancing act

For the several decades post WW2, the Americans were the number One super power that ruled the Indo Pacific theatre of war. American forces were based in Japan, S Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore and Australia, plus the military fortresses in Guam, Hawaii and several Pacific Island and Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. These military bases were bolstered by the presence of the 7th Fleet with hundreds of warplanes and thousands of marines ready to fight wars in any corner of the Indo Pacific region.

No country in Asia is able to meet these over powering military forces of the American Empire. China lives precariously under constant threat of a preemptive strike and invasion by the American forces. The Americans were haughty enough to sail their aircraft carriers into the Straits of Taiwan to threaten China with impunity. Needless to say, smaller countries like N Korea and Iran were easy meat and could be invaded at any moment just like the poor Arab countries. Asean countries at best are to shut up and live with the might and fear of the American Empire or become running dog of the Americans.

While N Korea and Iran could not do much to fend off the American threat as it is a no brainer who would be blasted out of the surface of the earth if the Americans attacked them. The imbalance of military power is so stark that both countries could only hope to build some nuclear weapons to do a die die together with the Americans as a little insurance and deterrence, however feeble is the attempt.

China would not sit idly by and continue to endure the military threats and bullying of the Evil American Empire. The Taiwan Strait Incident and the mindless and irresponsible missile attack on Chinese Embassy in Belgrade by the Evil American Empire was the last straw. China must build up its military forces to defend itself and prevent a repeat of such incidents fast.

China came up with the anti access and area denial strategy, AAAD to keep the Americans at bay. This strategy called for the development of anti aircraft carrier missiles to force the Americans to keep them far away from China’s coast. China succeeded with the deployment of D21 and D26 anti ship missiles that made the American carrier attack groups irrelevant and ineffective in launching an attack on China mainland. The 7th Fleet is no longer in the equation of containing and threatening China with military force.

The Americans are very unhappy with this change of military balance. Their only forces that could pose a threat to China are the land bases in Japan and South Korea. The bases in the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand and once Taiwan, have been booted out. The American strategic interest to be able to continue to threaten China is to establish more forward bases in Asean countries, stupid countries that would allow American to base their soldiers and military hardware to conduct wars with China.

What does this mean? At the onset of hostility and war, these land bases would be the first to be destroyed by Chinese missiles based in China and now in the South China Sea. Chinese missiles have effective range to strike all the American bases in S Korea, Japan/Okinawa, Guam and Diego Garcia, and all the Asean states. Thus, hosting American bases would risk these countries to be on the front line of a Sino American war and be the first to be hit. How many thinking or unthinking govt would want to take this risk when the Evil Americans are constantly provoking wars and seeking to start wars even with China?

The price to pay for hosting American bases is very steep and only foolish countries would want to do that. The Okinawans knew of this threat and want to chase the Americans out of their islands but to no avail as Japan is a semi colony of the American Empire and cannot say no. Also, the Okinawans were not really Japanese and are dispensable. The situation is the same as in S Korea, another semi American colony.

The Philippines were the smartest and knew the risk and sent the Americans packing home from Clark and Subic Bases. Vietnam did the same by chasing the Americans from their homeland. But things are changing again with little countries and their little interests and willing to be courted by the Americans to open their countries to host American bases. Between stupidity and genius is a fine line. Or is it between stupidity and delusion is a fine line?

The Americans are desperately seeking countries to be their forward military bases to conduct wars of aggression and to maintain American dominance and the American Empire in the Indo Pacific theatre of war. The Australians would always be a willing partner as they regard themselves as European western powers. So is New Zealand, understandable as they are Europeans sitting on stolen lands from the natives. India is wavering but reluctant to become an American semi colony due to Indian pride as an emerging world power.

Who else is silly enough to want to be the gun fodder of the American Empire, to die for the American Empire? The Evil American Empire will be holding the poison flower to woo any willing partner to be their front line soldiers in the defence of the American Empire.

Rule of law or Rule of Thugs and Kidnappers
Trudeau, asked about the comments, said Canada had simply acted in accordance with the rule of law. Meng has been released on bail and is living in her Vancouver home awaiting further extradition proceedings.
"Canada is a country of the rule of law. This is something that we know and we value," Trudeau said. "We have a justice system that is not subject to political interference."

What is this boy PM and his Canadians thugs and kidnappers trying to say in the above statement? The answer, China has no rule of law and China is a country that has no justice system and everything is subject to political interference. These white monkeys did not know that when they were still barbarians invading the world, China had already established its own legal systems several thousands years before their existence.
Take the present case, the arrest of an innocent woman executive from China while transitting a Canadian airport is part of its rule of law or kidnapping? China arresting the two Canadians on charges of espionage and spying is not observing the rule of law? The two Canadians can commit acts to harm China's interest is not violating China's law while Meng Wanzhou did not commit any offence in Canada deserved to be arrested under their rule of law or rule of thugs and kidnappers?
And the arrest is not politically motivated given Trump's trade war with China and with Trump openly saying that he would interfere with the case? And if it is not politically motivated, why is there a need for the boy PM to call Trump to get advice on whether to release or not to release Meng? Should not this be decided by the Canadian courts? And the court judges have said that if the Americans did not serve their notice to Canada before 8 Jan 19, the case would be lapsed and Meng release, but till now Meng is still not released? Are the Canadians practising the rule of law or rule of thugs and kidnappers?
This country was stolen from the American natives under the rule of invasion, rule of gangsters and thugs. Let them not forget that the land of Canada was robbed from the natives under the fictitious white man's rule of law or lawlessness.
China should make Canada an example by cutting all trades and relations, single Canada out as the lawless country of kidnappers, ban Canada from any future use of Huawei's 5G technology.

Living under the spell of American white lie
Stephen Roach of Yale University could not hold back any more when faced with daily barrage of American white lies about China. In his article in the Straits Times titled, ‘Is China really cheating?’, he wrote these two paragraphs to start his dismissal of the white lies.
‘Repetition breeds reality. Such is the case with allegations the United States has leveled at China in their budding economic cold war.
Across the American political spectrum, it is now taken for granted that China forces US companies to transfer critical technology in order to do business on the mainland, engages in rampant hacking and theft of intellectual property (IP), and massively and unfairly subsidises its high tech industries – all of which contribute to fears that the country poses an existential threat to America’s prosperity.’
Roach ended his article with these two paragraphs,
‘China is far from perfect and must be held accountable for verifiable economic transgression. But America’s case against China is based on anecdotes and shaky evidence.
As a trade war now morphs into a cold war, the current US administration would be wise to stop relying on such “alternative facts” to wage its battles.’
The gist of the article is that the Americans have been making wild allegations based on fake information and hearsays not backed up by data and facts. American companies operating in China, under JVs, are willing partners that agreed to share technologies and trade secrets. No one is pointing a gun against any party in such joint ventures. They don’t have to operate in China, don’t have to do business in China. The allegation of force is hogwash.
The important point, as Roach said above, the daily and constant repetition of these allegations after a while would make the innocent readers take these allegations for granted. Many would shoot from their mouths using these allegations unconsciously as given fact or alternative truth, just like some bananas screaming that Kim Jong Un is a womanizer, a spent thrift, someone who drowns himself with luxury while his people suffer from poverty, that he is a murderer, etc etc. They spout such nonsense without thinking because the Americans have been planting these ideas in their heads through repetitive postings in the main media.
Living under the white lies is one thing, making a fool of oneself by quoting the white lies as the truth is another. Asians must start thinking and not make a fool of themselves by allowing the Americans and the West to plant their white lies in their heads as if they are the truths. Many Asians have been made a fool of by relying on western media and living under the spell of white lies without noticing them and strutting around like they are well informed, but actually well fed by white lies.
Grow up and start thinking. It is so pathetic that after all the education and exposure to the world and could still fall victims to fake news, misinformation and white lies. Even an American professor could not stand this nonsense anymore. The biggest culprit in propagating these white lies and fake news is the main media. Period.

Rule of Law – Trudeau appealing to his think alike in Singapore
The Canadian fiasco in arresting an innocent Chinese citizen on transit through Vancouver Airport under its fake claim of rule of law, abiding by an international treaty with the US and so is free to arrest anyone indiscriminately, is making the Canadians looking like mischievous clowns in the international arena. Our action is all within the rule of law, there is nothing wrong with it. China is a country that has no rule of law, lawless, not following the rule? Only the sillies and kids would believe in this white farce.
Out of nothing, in a peaceful and stable relationship between the two countries, Canada is now making a fool of itself and paying a very heavy price politically and economically and even affecting its citizens overseas. All this is so unnecessary. Just keep shouting rule of law and keep accusing China as one without any rule of law, with no justice system and think you can get away with it. Now it is getting slap left and right by China.
China is telling the Canadians boys and girls in the govt to wise up and release the Chinese citizen immediately and apologise for their stupidity. But the stubborn boys and girls are sticking to their silly game and pretending that they have done no wrong. And they are scurrying everywhere to ask for assistance to get pass this stupid situation. Unfortunately they could only rely on the ex British conquered countries, ie the 5 eyes countries, for support as the rest of the world have seen through their hypocrisy and stupidity and would not waste a breath to say anything in favour of the Canadian boys and girls.
The boy PM is so desperate that he even called Hsien Loong in Singapore to support his rule of law nonsense. He knew that Singapore has been very loud in this rule of law thing and would definitely echo the boy PM’s cry. Singapore got to be very careful in replying to the boy PM and not to ruffle feathers in Beijing again when talking about the rule of law or rule of rogues and kidnappers. Saying the wrong thing, in another similar situation that has nothing to do with Singapore, would put Singapore in the same shitty situation as Canada and no one in the world, except the 5 eyes countries, would come to Singapore’s call for help if Singapore falls into the western trap for being a busybody.
Singapore is best to stay out of this stupid circus, don’t take the call, don’t say anything. The Canadian boy PM would be most happy to use the megaphone to tell China that Singapore is on the boy PM’s side and has supported their stupid rule of law/rule of rogues and kidnappers position. Of the more than 30 countries the boy PM had called, his most value call would be to use Singapore’s voice to support his case.
You can bet China would be furious and Singapore would only have itself to be blamed. Wisdom grows out of making mistakes in the past and is a painful and expensive experience that must not be forgotten easily and quickly. The price of wisdom is very high.
Canada is suffering from many cancelled economic and trade agreements costing hundreds of millions or billions of Canadian dollars. Can Singapore afford such developments and all for nothing except to open its big mouth to support the boy PM’s rule of rogues and kidnappers disguised as rule of law? Rule of Law has taken on a different meaning in this case, ie, a dirty political slogan.
It would be interesting if the boy PM start to shout that Canada can punch above its weight against China.
PS. There are now more than 200 Canadians detained/arrested in China for breaking Chinese laws.

Meng Wanzhou - National pride versus economic interest



The arrest of Meng Wanzhou has pitted China against the little country called Canada and its boy PM and girly FM. For the moment China is daily increasing pressure to squeeze these two naive twits to release Meng. The twits are stubbornly hanging on to their stupid position and risking the lives of Canadians being detained and arrested by China. For their childish pride and ego, they could not care about the lives of Canadians, one already sentenced to death, and Canadian business and economy. They just would not admit their stupidity.

Nearly two months have passed and China is still directing attacks at the silly boy and girl for acting as US's little doggies. In a way this is to hammer the unthinking boy and girl for acting silly. You want to fool around with China you will be caned and real hard.

The Americans have been off the Chinese radar so far though being the real devil. This would not be long. The Canadian ambassador in the US, David MacNaughton, has told the Canadian boy and girl that the US intend to extradite Meng before 30 Jan 19. When this is carried out, China would be forced to act against the US as well.

During this period, China has been actively negotiating a trade deal with the US to end the trade war. And the deal is almost done. What would China do if Meng is extradited to the USA to face life imprisonment? Would China close an eye and sacrifice Meng and go ahead with the trade deal? Doing so would seriously challenge the credibility of China in its ability to protect its own citizens from devious and illegal arrest by other countries, in this case the evil Empire. China as a big power would be watched by the whole world on how it prioritise trade and economic interest over national interest and national pride.

The whole Chinese population and Chinese around the world would also be watching if China would sacrifice its own citizens for money and be humiliated by the Americans once more. Another humiliation on China today would likely see the fall of Xi Jinping as the absolute ruler of modern China. Chinese pride and patriotism would not accept Xi to capitulate in this case. If China can forsake its own citizen, an important commercial top executive, it would be read as China would forsake all its citizens and those Chinese around the world. The new law to protect ethnic Chinese around the world would become a bluff. This is a tough call for Xi and to go ahead with the trade deal is NOT an option.

China and Xi cannot compromise Chinese pride and nationalism for economic gains, pride and nationalism cannot be exchanged for money, cannot be bought or traded.

Xi Jinping would be put to a severe test and his mental toughness as the leader of China and a world leader would either go up or go bust. Xi cannot afford to be seen to be bullied by the Americans. It is time that China takes action against the Americans by arresting a few senior American executives for committing crimes or espionage against China to trade with Trump. Being meek and weak would only invite more bullying and humiliation.
