I saw Trump's Town Hall on TV last night. He was talking about the protests across the country over police brutality and he pointed to New York where police had water poured on their heads by protestors and to Trump the police had the right to commit police brutality.
Apparently Boris Johnson is using China as an excuse to backtrack on agreements with the EU Great Britain already signed to. If China can do it on Hong Kong, Great Britain can do it for Brexit. Don't you love how the British are the ones beating people over the heads with the rule of law.
good day, I heard from a relative in the state (LA), that people are preparing for the worst, the partisan politics with both parties is so intense, that neither side will accept the result if their candidate lost, If these happen. The final arbiter I think will be decided in the street.
This kind of activities is so similar to what the American did in the ousting our previous President Estrada, The so called PEOPLE POWER, is just a ruse to justify an illegal seizure of democratic institution (presidency). I hope your country will not descent to what we had experience,
It really held us back for 20 years both politically and economically, and help usher in an oligarch type of system, where the rich get richer with govt support (political payback)
yes, not one ounce of integrity! that's who they are. years ago I wrote a post on Wenxuecity:
the proud whore complex and their son of bitch
in Hk, Taiwan many are proud of their colonial history. in Taiwan a guy is proud if his grandma served as comfort women(sex slave)for the imperial jap army. and they're full of entitlement: grandma served grand clients, grandson should have privileges!
I really don't understand why China tolerate foreign judges in Hongkong SAR I don't know of any sovereign country who have foreign Judge in their judiciary That is complete BS. Show again the spineless CPC!
NO WONDER HONGKONG IS CHAOS!

HONG KONG/SYDNEY, Sept 18 (Reuters) - One of the 14 foreign judges on Hong Kong's highest court said he had resigned due to concerns over a sweeping new national security law imposed by Beijing on the former British colony, Australia's national broadcaster reported on Friday.
The office of the city's leader Carrie Lam confirmed the resignation of Australian judge James Spigelman but did not give a reason.
Spigelman, the former Chief Justice of New South Wales, is the first senior judge to resign and publicly criticise the law, passed by China's parliament.
The Polish-born jurist told the ABC that he resigned for reasons "related to the content of the national security legislation" but did not elaborate further.
Spigelman did not immediately respond to a request from Reuters for comment.
His departure comes amid alarm in local and international legal circles at Beijing's imposition of a national security law on the freewheeling financial hub, which boasts an independent legal system based on the common law.
Under the security legislation, Lam has the right to select judges for a panel of jurists to handle national security cases. In the most serious cases, suspects can also be taken to mainland China for trial in its courts that are ultimately controlled by the Communist Party.
"Mr Justice Spigelman tendered to the Chief Executive on 2 September his resignation as a Non-Permanent Judge of the Court of Final Appeal, therefore the Chief Executive revoked his appointment in accordance with the relevant legislation," Lam's office responded in an email to queries about his departure. "Mr Justice Spigelman did not give any reason for his resignation," it said.
A spokesman for the Judiciary said they had no further comment to offer.
Spigelman was re-appointed to another three-year term on the Hong Kong court last year.
Foreign judges have long been considered a symbol of Hong Kong's judicial independence, helping to replace traditional role of the Privy Council in London after Britain handed the city back to Chinese rule in 1997.
