China

US Senate : A laughingstock.

I cannot but laugh at the effort

of the very distinguished, famous, honorable,

historical, champion of liberty

called the Senate of the United States

for the attempts to make laws

to be enforced in another sovereign country

which is China.

The conception of America’s Greatness is humurously 

overrated and their silly attempts to spread this idea

is turning from ridiculous to side-splitting.

I know that the Americans have a penchant

for democratizing the whole world

but making laws for the whole world?

This is absurd.

More bats in the belfry?

Failing Hongkong Protests

The ongoing ever-violent protests in Hong Kong

are doomed to failure.

It would have received support from the other countries

had the protesters not invaded government offices

and destroyed private properties.

In so doing, they demonstrated thet they will not follow

the democratic principles that they want to be subjected to.

On the other hand, it is the the autonomous government

of Carrie Lam that has shown it upholds democratic principles.

Carrie Lam has allowed the freedom to protest without

stopping it with armed military forces.

The protesters are provoking the police to be violent, though,

but the police have been heroic enough to hold back.

And so does Beijing.

The effort to determine with undercover Chinese as

to who is funding the protests have failed.

Meantime, Beijing is not cutting off the food exports to Hong Kong

because this is also one way to drain the protesters of the funds

that they are sre spending for food.

Meantime, it has taken Regina Ip’s “silent majority”

too long a time before it starts a counter-protest.

Hong Kong’s  financial  success,  and Beijing’s  too,

is not democracy, but an autonomous free port for all nations.

Tourists go there to buy things at affordable prices.

Let us not listen to the young people

who have yet to be concerned about backbreaking work

of earning a living.

Like babies, they cry because they need something.

They do not know what they need exactly.

They only know that they need something.

And they cry only because they NEED something.

Worse, they cry because they WANT something

which is out of reach.

This woman demonstrates a complete

and wizened knowledge

of Hongkong-China relations.

A Free Hongkong?

The protesters cry out for a free Hongkong.

They originally called for a withdrawal of the Extradition Bill.

Now they call for freedom and independence.

They should better be attentive and re-learn Beijing’s laws.

What they are calling for may be tantamount to REBELLION.

And should there be evidence of foreign interference with weapons,

it may be considered as AGGRESSION. 

Just a warning.

The Hongkong policemen have acted with incomparable restraint,

having been trained by the British, and being held back by Beijing.

Using excessive force on the protesters

will just be doing what the protesters hope for.

The Hongkong policemen and the Beijing troops will just hold on

and wait till the funds of the protesters run out,

or the pro-Beijing  people fights back.

Whatever happens, either the zeal of the protesters

or their food supply runs out.

What for the protests?

the Extradition Bill has already been withdrawn!

 

 

Message From China

Canada appoints a new Ambassador to China.

China appoints a new Ambassador to Canada.

Hongkong  withdraws the Extradition Bill.

It is presumed that Beijing ordered this.

China now iterates in more direct words

that Canada should free Meng Wangzhou.

This message from China

have been misunderstood  by Canada

even before Meng Wangzhou was arrested.

This message is now clarified as :

 

“talk to China directly and not thru America

in matters regarding trade, diplomatic relations,

or prisoner swaps. “

 

There should be no intermediaries

on just about anything

between Canada and China.

 

China has now provided a window

for better Canadian-Chinese relationship.

This is the best opportunity for Canada to clear things up.

As of now, China still holds the highest regard for Canada.

 Higher even than any other country in the world.

Hongkong Protests

These have now become disruptive

and the activities are getting out of control.

The protesters simply want the extradition bill withdrawn

(not merely suspended) and while this can be done with

an oral declaration, Carrie Lam refuses to do so.

Or, if I might say, China does not want to withdraw the bill.

China still has sovereignty over Hongkong.

Moreover, the protests are actually what China wants.

These protests dramatizes thegrave disdain that Chinese

have against extradition.

What more effective a message

can China send to Canada

than its refusal to withdraw the extradition bill.

Canada has been hammering out its conformance to the rule of law.

So now China will do likewise.

Only thing is China’s rules of law

is emphatically different from Canada’ rules of law.

Or doesn’t everybody know these?

In a nutshell,

Would China drop its extradition bill

if Canada drops its extradition of Meng?

Presently,here is no end in sight for these protests.

 

 

Canadian Meat Imports Prohibited

China now prohibits the importation

of meat from Canada.

This is after Canola importations from Canada was stopped.

Whatever reasons we may be thinking of for these,

China is still following the Rule of Law

as regards the technical reasons for the prohibitions.

There will be more, unless…..

Hong Kong Extradition

China tried to pull a fast one on the residents of Hong Kong.

There is a pending bill on the autonomous government of Hong Kong

wherein criminals can be extradited to Mainland China.

Laws are different in the Mainland

and chances are when one is extradited to China

one may never be found again.

Millions of residents protested and asked for the bill

to be repealed and the Leader of the government be removed.

Good for the residents if these were completed.

This law will be tantamount to the Mainland skirting Hong Kong’s autonomy

and thereby will result to complete control of the government.

In this situation everyone in Hong Kong, including the Americans,

can be extradited to Mainland China.

Canola Oil

Sending a diplomatic team to China to remedy the canola oil
import prohibition by China is useless.
We know why China is doing this
and I did put up a detailed suggestion as to how to
go about the Meng Wangzhou extradition irritant
in my website. The government just ignored it.
Well, Canada should suffer the consequences.
If I know the Chinese, this irritants have just started.
There will be more.
Come to think of it, we Canadians are the ones actually
suffering the consequences of what the United States
started. And for what?
So that the US would have the negotiating advantage
on just about everything.
It is now getting very difficult for me not to say
that we Canadians are downright stupid
for keeping up with appearances.

McCallum Fired

And so a good Canadian Diplomat

with that ability to make good and friendly negotiations

by deftly parrying hostile remarks

is fired by an overbearing Prime Minister.

McCallum was talking to a Chinese audience,

and as such, he talks in the language that they

understand and are susceptible to.

That is, he calmed them down by going 

to the other side of the fence.

By now the Chinese are susceptible, softened

 to what he is going to say.

After making such good incursions to the Chinese

McCallum was set to go to China,

a trip which the PM considered bad for Canada.

and he was fired.

As a consequence,

there will be more Canadians detained in China.

And this,

for the simple reason that Canada is unmoving

and worse,

Canada is adversarial to Chinese diplomacy.

Even if Meng Wangzhou is not extradited,

and she goes back to China,

China will not release any of the detained Canadians,

before Canada changes its tune in the talks with China.

(it should start singing la donna e mobile*)

Canadian Diplomacy

McCallum.mpg

Canadian Ambassador to China,

John McCallum opines

that Meng Wangzhou has a strong case

on her extradition case.

This is just his opinion

and is not what we can call interference

with the extradition trial.

But some particular noise-makers in Canada

are up in arms calling  McCallum’s opinion

an intervention.

My gosh!

Believe you me.

It is now getting difficult not to call these people

stupid journalists.

(Ooops! Sorry. Pardon me.

Mea Culpa.

I did not mean to say “journalists”.

Slip of the pen, sorry.)

Personally,

this is the first instance within this government

that I have heard something that profuses

with tact and diplomacy.

This John McCallum

is up and starting to be

the accomplished diplomat!

Go, John, damn the torpedoes

Full speed ahead.

You will  get the Canadians out of China yet.

After all

they have yet to pinpoint where

Kim’s nuclear devices were moved to.

And John’s opinion

is precisely according to mine.

Bless his soul!

 

The Huawei Who We?

As if Canada realized that it has been beaten in the game,

it now sounds out the trumpet to call on its big brothers.

A very unwise decision.

This will make matters worse.

What could the others do to influence China?

Impose sanctions on Huawei?

These would easily be countermanded.

Or that company be re-structured and modified.

Canada again does not realize what it is up against.

It has yet to realize

that the US is using Canada as a cannon fodder.

And that efforts to release those Canadians

under Chinese detention are useless.

There is no cause for Meng Wangzhou to be extradited.

They should have known that by now.

But there are valid reasons

why the Canadians should be detained in China.

And if my guess is right,

these reasons are related

to the complete denuclearization of Korea

as was promised by Kim Jong Un.

Perhaps the Canadian News media should stop spinning

and start listening to some other comments.

They don’t put their brains on the noise they make.

(Use Your Heads, think till it hurts)

 

 

The Huawei Test case Continues

And so the Meng Wanzhou case continues

with explicable consequences

like a new intelligence gathering by abductions.

Canada detains Meng without possession of

valid American extradition papers,

China detains two Canadian citizens,

and Russia enters the scene by abducting Whalen.

These abductions would be more pleasant

should they intend to use vodka, or rice wine, or cognac

instead of water for boarding; in which case the confessions

would be more sufferable and confounded merely

by a few hiccups here and there.

But all kidding aside, this is a test of

how effective the much-vaunted American sanctions can go.

now, it thus appear that American sanctions are effective only

if the countries cooperate in ganging up on the sanctioned party.

Otherwise, like in this instance, only Canada will cooperate in applying

American sanctions.

This is but natural for Canada to cooperate because this is one

country that keeps its word as regards agreements

and treaties which someone we know just breaks with a whim.

American sanctions are not punishable by detentions

and the rest of the world know this.

it is , however, open season for Canadian citizens for abductions.

Sad it is but this is true.

This country knows no enemies.

As a consequence, it has now become a whipping boy

for the rest of the world.

The ugly part of it is that Canada does not fight back.

It has even deferred itself from building

military grade weapons for its own defense.

But iof Canada really wants to end this test case

it should force the Americans to provide papers

to start the extradition trial of Meng Wangzhou.

Remember also that the more the extradition trial is delayed

the more money the lawyers concerned earn in fees

and this for just doing nothing but wait on their haunches.

How much more problems will the Justice Ministry

subject the country to?

Even the Federal Courts are troublesome!

And grandstanding, too.

I give you my first quotable quip—

You take-a my toy top,

I take-a your toy yoyo.

You give me back my toy top,

I think of giving your toy yoyo.

 

 

 

 

Third Canadian Detained By China

(This post is a new twist

and should twist your minds,

although I assure you that it did not come from a twisted mind!)

Chinese intelligence detains a third Canadian.

Her cell phone number must have been reflected

in any or both of the phones of the other two.

Either this, or she must have been taking pictures

of some sensitive storage sites.

It would be detrimental to the plight of those

now under detention

for the Americans to intervene

because by doing so may remove doubts that

the prisoners are actually working for the

US Intelligence.

The best thing that the Americans could do

is to cancel the request for extradition.

That is, if the Chinese National Security

has not yet been seriously compromised.

In any case, the success of the

US – North Korea Agreement is included in the ante.

(It should not take a great deal of intelligence

to figure out how Intelligence Departments work!)

(EH?)

China Keeps Its Heavy Word

China does not issue idle threats.

It only trumpets a heavy word.

And now it has kept it.

A warning was first issued

after Meng Wangzhou was detained in what apeears to be

an arrest without evidence to warrant that arrest,

only confidence that the requesting party

has its wown proof to warrant the arrest.

Kovrig  who once worked fore the Canadian government

was detained by Chinese authorities without a warrant with

but the reason that his employer was not registered.

Afterwards, Spavor who  is mostly connected with North Korea,

was detained with no possible charge but

a national security risk .

An announcement is then made by the Chinese authorities

that  these arrests are  not connected  to

the impending extradition of Meng Wangzhou.

Clearly the Chinese have something heavier than extraditions.

Something that is not commercial, financial,

cultural, political, or whatever.

This would be something that is related to information

regarding the extent of the relationship between the countries

of China and North Korea.

For China now,

I believe that Kovrig and Spavor

are in a very,very serious situation

and the complete release of Meng Wanzhou

will not affect it nonetheless.

Where are these two now?

They are in a Chinese prison,

a close inference of which may be spelled as

L-I-M-B-O

NOKOR Supply Trail

Does the American intelligence community

know of any “Ho Chi Minh” Trail

that connects North Korea

to either China or Russia

or both?

Such a trail would be immune to

sanctions

and even bombing!

China And North Korea

It is a fat chance that China will admonish North Korea

to stop the latter’s missile and nuclear tests.

These tests would be for their mutual benefit.

Ask me later if you have not figured this out yet.
