    Bad Month Rising…

    …in China.

    August is a month of beginning heinous repression in China.

    The 1966 Cultural Revolution began in August. In August of 1966, the Chinese Cultural Revolution was shifting into high gear. Egged on by Chairman Mao, student groups calling themselves the “Red Guard” had been popping up at schools, colleges, and universities all over the country. They were drunk with power and convinced of their own victimhood (rather like our Antifa).


    Beijing was the epicenter of the most extreme varieties of violence during that month. But in Shanghai, things were nevertheless out of control.


    August of 1966 was a ghastly month in China. But then again the Cultural Revolution was just getting started.


    History is rhyming in 2019 – if not outright repeating. The PLA is rolling into Hong Kong. The twenty-year experiment is over. China does not care that crushing Hong Kong will diminish Chinese prosperity. The Power of the Party (and Chairman Xi) is all that matters.


    Hong Kong (and maybe other cities in the Pearl River valley) is in for a repression that would impress even Chairman Mao.


    There ain’t jack the US (or the rest of the world for that matter) can do about it. In fact the US may benefit. Chairman Xi is apparently willing to throw away thirty years of economic progress. China may have hit its zenith as a world power.

    Yup, we're going to get a good hard look at what REAL COMMUNISM looks like. China seems to have had enough of the Capitalist Western World Culture, and is now going to flex it's muscles against Hong Kong, in a very big way. This is Venezuela, but on a much much larger scale.

    MILLENNIALS, PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO WHAT COMMUNISM REALLY DOES. WATCH WHAT THEY DO TO HONG KONG.

    Not for long, the Chinese Army will crush the city population in a week. Hong Kong has enjoyed twenty years of relative independence and special treatment as a Chinese capitalist funnel - those days appear to be over. Xi is flexing the muscle behind the smooth public image of China as an up and coming world trader and power. Fear of an uprising by the population is the Number 1 concern of the Chicoms, always has been. That's why they maintain such a huge military. When the British gave Hong Kong back to China, many of the international businesses located there fled to Honolulu. As for American concern or involvement? Nothing we can do about it, would be like China trying to interfere with our National Guard moving into Detroit or Chicago's inner cities. Trump would do well to ignore it completely - not our problem.
