Stupidity of Emperor Trump confirmed
China has stopped buying of soya beans and farmed products from the USA. China also allowed Yuan to fall to the lowest level against the greenback. These are direct results of Trumps interference in China’s domestic affairs, including the selling of arms to Taiwan and messing around in Hong Kong’s civil riots.
Emperor Trump is still living in the ages when the Americans ruled the world and any country that it disliked, scorned upon, will be whipped, threatened, sanctioned or invaded. While the trade talks are going on, Emperor Trump stupidly thought that he could increase pressure by pointing a gun at the Chinese negotiators to force them to sign on the dotted line at terms the Americans dictated. This kind of gangsterism and bullying tactic no longer works and would be strongly opposed by China and the Chinese people. The more Trump applies this rough tactic which he thought was very clever of him, the further would be the day for a trade deal with China. China is no longer a pushover and would not surrender to such bullying. Trump can play tough, China too can play tough.
Trump and his silly American advisors thought the Chinese are meek, weak and stupid and they could pretend to negotiate a trade deal and at the same time undermine China’s interests in Taiwan, Hong Kong and the South China Sea. These are all inter related and cannot be separated from the trade talks.
‘I would increase pressure on China by raising tariffs on the balance US$300 billion imports from China,’ declared Emperor Trump. The Chinese would have to go down on their knees to beg for mercy. Instead it is the American farmers that would go down on their knees to beg for mercy from their Emperor Trump. This naked Emperor still believes he is wearing his best clothes.
China not only stopped all buying of American farm products, it also allowed Yuan to devalue to offset the rise in tariff. Then what, Wall Street collapsed. The pride of Emperor Trump could not hold on to his make belief that everything is fine, he is winning the trade war. S&P index fell 3% wiping out US$766 billion from the US market. And Emperor Trump would again be shouting we are winning, we are winning.
Still want to talk to China and want to have a trade deal, winning a trade war? China has no bullets left to fight the USA? Dream on Emperor Trump. China would reply for every shot fired by Trump. This war is asymmetrical and China has a lot of weapons to play, not hapless and cannot do anything against Trump’s threat and tariffs. Keep going Emperor Trump, oh by the way, you are naked. The American economy has never been so good, the stock market is hitting new highs. America is great again. Keep blowing your horns.
The more Emperor Trumps tries to bully China, the more China would resist and hit back. Name China as currency manipulator, go ahead, keep behaving badly like a gangster and hope to have a trade deal and win. We are winning the trade war, China needs a deal, we don’t need a deal but we will give them a deal…very soon. We will have a trade deal that is good for us, bad for China. China has no choice but must accept a bad deal….
Our economy is doing great, the best ever! America is great again! Oops, Dow fell 767 points. What’s that?

RIP Google, here comes HarmonyOS from Huawei
Trump has officially killed Google and Android. Huawei has launched its own operating system HarmonyOS for all its handphones. This is a very powerful and versatile OS and can be used with many other platforms like cars, ipad, digital watchs, TV etc etc. This would mean that all Chinese handphone makers would be switching to Huawei HarmonyOS. The Chinese market would be closed to Google totally The African market and the Indian market are also using Huawei's OS. The rest of the world would follow suit except for North America, the USA.

To the average handphone users, whatever OS is transparent to them and it would not matter much and using Huawei would only mean that they are getting a better and cheaper system. For the sophisticated users, HarmonyOS is much superior than Android and they know and would switch to Huawei by choice.

Samsung would switch to Huawei for its China market for no better reason than convenience as all the Chinese users would be using HarmonyOS. Huawei could deliver the final blow by offering HarmonyOS for free or at a nominal fee to Samsung and also to Apple. What is there left for Google?

Google would become the IT dinosaur of modern technology overnight. It would be buried by its own weight.

Thank you Donald Trump, for delivering this deadly blow to Google and its Android OS.

PS. Apple's share of the mobile phone market is only 10%. Samsung is 23%. China's Huawei and Oppo took the top 2nd and 3rd spots in worldwide shipment of the equipment, taking 18% and 9.5% respectively. If all the Chinese handphones are added, they took more than 60% of the world market. If Samsung goes HarmonyOS, together they would tak a whooping 83% of the market share.

Hong Kong - Protesters telling the truth?

Hong Kong protesters rally at airport to share 'the truth'

This is the statement the demonstrators occupying Hong Kong international airport are trying to say to the visitors. The kids claimed that Hong Kong is ruled by 'tyranny and police brutality'. Is that the truth? The world have previews of all the demonstration rallies and could see how violent the protesters were, I mean the kids. They attacked policemen and police stations, ransacked Parliament and govt offices. There were violence and rioting on the streets. These are lawless mobs, burning, beating people and policemen and destroying properties.

The fact that no one die was due to the restraints of the police. The protesters should be grateful to the police for their mercy.

Now, what truth are they trying to say? The truth is that Hong Kong is a tiny bit of China. China would not allow Hong Kong to go independent or break away. Period. A Hong Kong that is independent and under the influence of the West, would be a malignant growth, a cancer in the throat of China. This is never to happen at any cost, just like Taiwan would not be separated from China and to allow the West to use it to create mischief for China. It is impossible, a lost cause from the start. China would lock down Hong Kong if needed to, destroyed, but would never allow it to become a western base to undermine China's interests.

The rioting kids, and the lunatic adults hiding behind them, think they have the Americans and the West supporting them and they can run wild to wrestle Hong Kong from China. They think that world opinion would help them to win their cause.

The cost of this lunacy would be their lives and the future of Hong Kong as a thriving financial centre of China.

Today, Hong Kong is dispensable. Everything Hong Kong does can be replicated and replaced by other cities of China.

Today, China is not a downtrodden poor country easily invaded by foreign forces.

Today, China is able to match the Americans in every way in a major war.

Today, the Chinese people are united and the thought of becoming a colony and subjects of a foreign power is shameful, disgraceful and unacceptable.

When China was poor and weak, they stood up to fight the Americans and 22 countries combined in the war against American Imperialism in Korea and won. Today, China would turn Americans and another 22 countries, if the Americans could gather, into minced meats. What is 1m lunatics running wild in the streets of Hong Kong? China could pour in 2m volunteers to flood the streets of Hong Kong and suffocate the mobs with a snap of the finger, and the Americans and the West could do nothing about it.

These are the truths that the mobs need to know. They are disposable and dispensable gun fodder. The only way for them going forward is to migrate to their western countries of choice and be subjects of the western countries. Hong Kong does not need them and they have no place in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is China.

PS. There is a general belief that the Hongkongers are street smart. So, do they believe that China would let Hong Kong to go independent when the stake is so high? Who managed to convince them, to con them to believe that this is possible? Even if a lot of lives would have to be put down, China would face it and do it to keep Hong Kong as part of China. Hongkongers could not see this hard truth and believe it could be otherwise because some Europeans or bananas told them so?

After a few life times of being controlled and indoctrinated by the West, the Hongkongers forgot that they are as Chinese as the Chinese in China. They forgot that they could rule themselves and run their own country but still clinging to be ruled by Britain and be slaves of the Brits.

Communism is bad, Chinese is bad. There is no successful democratic country in the world. The 'successful' western democracies were successful because of Imperialism and colonialism when they controlled and fed off from their ex colonies and exploited the rest of the world by unfair economic system. Today, without their ex colonies, one by one the western democracies are failing. The USA economy is waiting to implode. The European democracies are going bust one by one and China is stepping in to save them. What an irony. But stupid Hongkongers still could not see the truth.

The rise of China and the demise of the West is a certainty.

Hurray Trump has done it

The S&P 500 fell 85.72 points, or 2.9%, to 2,840.60. The Dow sank 800.49 points, or 3%, to 25,479.42. The Nasdaq composite lost 242.42 points, or 3%, to 7,773.94. The Russell 2000 index of smaller company stocks slid 43.05 points, or 2.8%, to 1,467.52.

The losses come a day after stocks rallied when the Trump administration delayed tariffs on about $160 billion in Chinese goods that were set to take effect on Sept. 1.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to defend his trade policy Wednesday, saying "we are winning big time, against China." Yahoo News 14 Aug 19

I have always wrote in praise of Trump for his effort in bringing down the American Empire. And he has consistently and relentlessly been pushing his agenda his way that he thought would make America Great Again. He sincerely believed that he is godsend to do this job. He is the best man in the USA to make American great again. ‘We are winning big time, against China’. Oops, Dow fell 800 points or 3%. And the fear of recession is looming around the corner. Not to worry, Trump the Conman is in charge. He will continue to con the Americans all is fine, China is in deep trouble, America is doing very well. But he quickly reversed course and said the new tariff hike would take effect on 15 Dec. Otherwise all the imports for Christmas present would be much more costly to the Americans this Christmas.

Now look at the figures above posted in Yahoo News on 14 Aug and ask if you believe in them or believe in Trump the Conman. There were many indicators pointing to serious problems in the US economy, falling real income, employment numbers and the need to lower interest rates. But no one wants to believe but love to believe in Conman Trump. Now reality hits, bond market indicators showed recession coming and Dow plunged, 800 points. You cannot hide, cannot run, cannot lie.

In the meantime Trump and his gangsters are behaving like terrorists terrorizing countries all over the world with threats of war. The people in Iran and Venezuela are waiting being massacred by the Americans. Warships and warplanes are all over Iran. In the case of Venezuela, the Americans had stopped a ship carrying food to feed the Venezuelans. The Venezuelans can die as long as Trump and his terrorists try to do a regime change to force Maduro, their elected President to step down. If not, die shall the Venezuelans. The same goes to the Iranians. The North Koreans are luckier as China is just next door and food supply and essentials will not stop flowing into the country to feed the North Koreans despite all the sanctions and blockades by the Americans for the last few decades.

I digress. The most and immediate threat to the world economy and world peace is the Number One Terrorist of the World trying all ways to destroy the world. Trump is the leader leading a bunch of unscrupulous leaders in the White House doing just this, to destroy the world to make America great again, but not before destroying America in the process.

Well done Conman Trump. No more trade deal with China.

The children of the world that survived this madness created by Trump and his gangsters would remember how great America was, but then dead and gone.

US China Trade War entering new phase - the best outcome
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump declared Friday that he had "hereby ordered" American companies with operations in China "to immediately start looking for" an alternative after Beijing announced a series of retaliatory tariffs....

The U.S. has said it plans to impose 10% tariffs on $300 billion of Chinese goods in two steps, on Sept. 1 and Dec. 15. China responded Friday with new tariffs on $75 billion of U.S. products in retaliation, deepening a conflict over trade and technology that threatens to tip a weakening global economy into recession.

China also will increase import duties on U.S.-made autos and auto parts, the Finance Ministry announced. Tariffs of 10% and 5% will take effect on two batches of goods on Sept. 1 and Dec. 15, the ministry said in a statement. It gave no details of what goods would be affected but the timing matches Trump's planned duty hikes....Yahoo News

The US China Trade War has a lot of similarities to the Korean War, aka the Anti American Imperialism War to the Chinese. In that war, the US under the command of Gen MacArthur, a personality not much different from Trump, entered the war with the full might of the American military power. The overwhelming imbalance in the forces of the two adversaries was stark and the North Koreans could only retreat. MacArthur marched towards the Yalu River in triump, beaming like an invincible war hero. Then China entered the theatre and struck back. The rest is history.

Trump started this war with China with guns blazing, shooting everything sight. For the initial phase of this war he appeared to be winning and China was being pushed back like the North Koreans. The war has reached a similar stage as the American forces at the Yalu River. China is digging and and fighting back. China is going to take the initiative and turn the table.

Are the Americans going to win or flee? Trump has ordered a withdrawal of all American companies in China, back to America just like MacArthur did when he was swarm by the Chinese Volunteer Armies. How would this turn out? Can American companies afford to retreat to the homeland, across the Pacific Ocean? What would happen to Ford and GM when they lose the biggest car market in the world and returned to a saturated home market that have grown sick of them and facing the onslaught of Japanese, Korean and European cars? Ford and GM's lives were extended and saved because of the move to China. Without the Chinese market these two American dinosaurs would have their lives ended in double quick time. So would many other American companies with operations in China, the electronics, computers and mobile phone and other high tech companies.

The outcome, Trump would raise its tariffs wall higher and banned all Japanese, Korean and European imports and the world would hit a recession that Trump has been working on for so long. Go ahead Trump, don't stop at 15%, go the max, 30% and what happens?

If the American economy is doing so well, Trump would not be so desperate to want to cut interest rate even to zero. Trump is so desperate that he even blamed Fed Chairman Jerome Powell as the enemy of the US, worse than Xi. Despite all his fake tweets of how well the American economy is doing, the truth is the opposite. More than 938 American farmers have gone bankrupt and more coming, and more farmers committing suicide because of Trump's reckless and unthinking policies promoted by the war hawks.

Trump will fail very badly. But the war hawks and their war industries would get a boost when the world goes into turmoil, rising tension and more wars. Well done Trump, this is the best outcome you can achieve in your presidency.

Thank you very much and bye bye the American Empire. Remember the Korean War?

Chinese Beidou global position system more used than American GPS
The Chinese version of the Global Positioning System (GPS) has overtaken GPS and the Nikkei Asian Review says

The growth of BeiDou has profound implications and is raising alarm in the US national security establishment. Unlike GPS, which only sends signals and cannot identify the location of receivers, BeiDou’s communications with the ground are two-way. According to Dean Cheng of the Heritage Foundation, the Chinese satellites can jam signals in specific areas and raise capabilities in cyber attacks.

S’poreans should be asking why the PAP govt is allowing this probable threat to national security. Don’t believe me? Mamaland and Japan, both rivals of China, also got a lot of these devices?
But maybe it all has to do with the use of Chinese-made smartphone handsets?

What do you think?

Cynical Investor


The above is quoted from Cynical Investor who is very unhappy that Beidou is now more welcome and used by more countries, including Singapore. And this banana is very unhappy because his American god is being eclipsed and questioning the Singapore govt for allowing the use of Beidou here. Like all bananas, he accepted the American and Japanese allegation that Beidou's two way system would compromise the users. Whether Beidou or Huawei uses their technology to disrupt or spy on others is a separate issue as long as their technology could do it.

Why is the American system not built for this strategic advantage? Why is the American GPS unable to do so? Obvious, the Americans would want to do so as they are doing so in every field, everywhere and every moment now. Their GPS tech could not do so because it is less advanced than the Beidou system. It is backward, old technology.

But this is not the reason why other countries chose to use Beidou. Not only that Beidou is more advanced and more accurate, it is not politicised. And China is not using it to spy on others or to threaten others. If China is doing so, all the countries would find out, know about it and abandon it.

The Americans have politicised the GPS, used it to threaten and blackmail friends or foes. They have switched it on and off as they like against other countries. Iran, Syria, India, Pakistan, Russia, Japan and many other countries have their use of the GPS stopped and compromised when the Americans chose to switch it off at the critical moments. These countries became blind and the Americans could fly their drones into their countries to conduct military and air strikes. The Israelis are using this to their best advantage against the Middle East countries, particularly the Arabs.

Did I answer the uncomfortable question of this silly banana? Only the Americans can spy and jam on others, others cannot retaliate and cannot have the capability to do so. Why would countries want to use an ancient and unreliable technology, be controlled by the Americans and be at the mercy of the Americans?

And he said this in the above, 'Mamaland and Japan, both rivals of China, also got a lot of these devices?' Mamaland and Japan always see China as a rival, a foe, but do not mind using Beidou. So what does it say?
