CPPCC, China’s top political advisory body, concluded its annual session on Wednesday afternoon, calling for efforts toward realizing the two centenary goals and the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation which show no future of achievement.
At yesterday’s meeting, CPPCC members unanimously agreed with and supported the National People’s Congress in making a decision on establishing and improving the legal system and enforcement mechanisms for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to safeguard the so-called “national security.”
Afterward, Xinhua carries a commentary claiming that “only national security legislation can bring Hong Kong lasting stability”.
At the same time in Hong Kong, thousands of armed police flooded the streets to stop the planned demonstrations aimed at halting a law criminalizing ridicule of China’s national anthem.
The police arrested at least 360 people during day-long protests and skirmishes across the city, as residents railed against controversial legislation aimed at bringing the territory further under Beijing’s control, chanting: “Hong Kong independence, it’s the only way.”
As a response to the Hong Kong crisis, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo notified Congress hours ago that the Trump administration no longer regards Hong Kong as autonomous from mainland China as it no longer qualifies for special status under US law.
In a statement, Pompeo said China’s plan to impose new national security legislation on the territory was “only the latest in a series of actions that fundamentally undermine Hong Kong’s autonomy and freedoms”.
US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that the US is going to take action against China this week over its effort to impose national security laws on Hong Kong.
“We’re doing something now. I think you’ll find it very interesting. ” Trump told reporters at the White House, “It’s something you’re going to be hearing about … before the end of the week – very powerfully I think.”
Finally, the US and Communist China have met each other on a war-front, not cold but hot.
At a press briefing yesterday, David R. Stilwell, Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the US State Department, told about the reasoning behind this escalation of tensions:
“What the Chinese are trying to do, what Beijing is trying to do here, is paint this situation with Hong Kong and the rest of all Chinese actions here as contest strictly between the U.S. and China, painting the U.S. as the hostile side. Beijing likes this arrangement. It makes it much easier to deal with one on one, and it used them – it helps them use economic levers on others who aren’t involved in the fray to keep them on the sidelines. And we’ve seen that go on where economic threats – most recently with Australia, I believe you’ve seen – are told that beef, barley, wine, other imports would no longer be welcome should they continue down this path.”
Stilwell said, “The fact is that it’s not just U.S. and China, it’s basically the world is finally recognizing that China’s pushing – Beijing is pushing a form of government that many only now are beginning to recognize as problematic. And this most recent step from the National People’s Congress in walking away from its obligations with respect to Hong Kong only demonstrate that more clearly.”
Canceling the special treatment for Hong Kong means a lot for China and the world, not just for Hong Kong.
BBC says in a commentary, “It has huge economic implications, but the geopolitical implications may be even greater. The move will likely meet angry reaction from Beijing and further jeopardize already fragile US-China relations, which appear to be in free fall amid tensions over trade, the pandemic, and technological rivalry.” But the scope of rivalry is far from that.
Hu Xijin, the CCP’s mouthpiece of the Global Times, tweeted right after Pompeo’s announcement. “Whether China’s Hong Kong is autonomous, how could it possibly be up to the US to define? Plus, it has a habitually lying Secretary of State who can tell the US Congress what Hong Kong national security law is before it’s even enacted.”
We want to tell this rogue Hu Xijin that the right is surely in the hands of Americans whether to grant Hong Kong that special treatment which has helped raised the CCP into a fat demon.
Angry CCP can do nothing as a response but to threaten the world again with a war, not just in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
President Xi, on Wednesday, attending a plenary meeting of the delegation of the People’s Liberation Army and People’s Armed Police Force at the third session of the 13th National People’s Congress, ordered the military to think about worst-case scenarios, scale up training and battle preparedness.
Xi is prepared for war.
Earlier, China’s top diplomat Wang Yi said, the US is pushing relations with China to “the brink of a new Cold War”. Now the CCP wants to update it into a “Hot War”.
Today, we have seen the whole world stand up against the CCP dictatorship. Australia has called for an independent inquiry into the origin of COVID-19. Britain has decided to ban Huawei 5G. Europe and over 100 countries have joined the condemnation.
Today, the tension between India And China is also intensifying with troops from both countries clashing in different areas along the 3,488 kilometer-long disputed border especially, in Ladakh.
While Chen Daoxiang, the commander of the People’s Liberation Army garrison in Hong Kong, said it has the “determination, confidence and ability to protect national security”, more CCP officials are sending their families to hide overseas when they themselves are restricted from leaving the country.
The US House of Representatives on Wednesday passed legislation calling for sanctions against Chinese officials for the detention and torture of Uighur Muslims in the country’s western region of Xinjiang.
The legislation resembles a measure that passed the House 407-1 last year. It cites several Chinese officials by name, including Chen Quanguo, the official responsible for overseeing the camps, and Zhu Hailun, who has been labeled “Xinjiang’s architect of mass detention.”
Those officials would then face sanctions, though Trump could exempt certain individuals if he claims that the exemption is in the national interest.
Today, Huawei’s chief financial executive Meng Wanzhou, suffered a US extradition blow as a Canadian Court has turned down a case in her favor.
The US has charged Meng Wanzhou with fraud over a Huawei-owned company’s alleged dealings with Iran, and the US wants Ms. Meng to stand trial on charges linked to the alleged violation of US sanctions against Iran.
Following the ruling, a Chinese embassy spokesperson in Canada said: “The purpose of the United States is to bring down Huawei and other Chinese high-tech companies, and Canada has been acting in the process as an accomplice of the United States. The whole case is entirely a grave political incident.”
This spokesperson was right with those words. The US and most of the west have taken the CCP regime as the Number One rivalry.
Two days ago, US slaps sanctions on 33 Chinese companies and institutions, including the tech giant Qihoo 360 Technology. Nine entities were already put on a second list for their alleged roles in rights violations in the Xinjiang region.
The world is encircling the CCP regime on full-scale war fronts, determined to bring down the evil Chinese Communist Party.
But the west is not the CCP’s greatest enemy. The 1.4 billion Chinese are!
Domestically, vulnerable China till faces the “big challenge” of a potential second wave of COVID-19 infections. The lack of immunity among the community is still a serious concern as the race to develop a vaccine continues.
During the CCP’s Two Sessions this week, CCP made a rare decision not to set a GDP target for its economic growth for 2020 due to uncertainties about the impact of the coronavirus.
The CCP knows China’s economy is collapsing. But they still try to cover the eyes of 1.4 billion people.
Last week, an internal Chinese report warns that Beijing faces Tiananmen-like global backlash over the crisis. Still, the internal fights among the CCP leadership never stop. Too many CCP officials want Xi Jinping to die.
Under increasing domestic and international pressure, the CCP is facing a fate of collapse.
According to CCP killer Guo Wengui, the coming June 4th will be the national day of a new China when the establishment of an overseas interim government shall be announced in New York.
Guo said a founding Constitution will be announced and the Chinese people will soon welcome a new government without the Chinese Communist Party.
Everything has started.
