  • Hong Kong in History's Lens: Who Is Responsible For the Violence?

    Townhall ^ | 11/13/2019 | Austin Bay
    How will historians in 2060 frame the 2019 Hong Kong crisis? "The first battle of the Second Cold War" is one possibility, though Russia's 2014 Crimean invasion deserves that cruel award. Perhaps the first Cold War isn't over. The USSR's communist dictatorship collapsed in 1991. China's party tyranny didn't. In 1989, the Kremlin didn't order its puppet regimes to murder protesting citizens en masse. On Nov. 9,1989, the Berlin Wall cracked without a shot. Not so in China. On June 4, 1989, the People's Liberation Army attacked peaceful pro-freedom protestors in Beijing's Tiananmen Square and murdered over 2,000 Chinese citizens....

    This is the moment a man was set on fire for disagreeing with pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong on Monday. The man, who hurled expletives at the black-clad protesters and told them “you’re all not Chinese,” was suddenly engulfed in flames after protesters doused him with a liquid, according to the video and CNN. The man survived by ripping off his T-shirt and is in critical condition.

    The Jerusalem Post ^ | November 4, 2019 | Seth J. Frantzman
    Iraqis scaled the wall around the Iranian consulate in Karbala and raised an Iraqi flag over it. They said only the Iraqi flag should fly high in the sky and that Iranians should be ejected. Other protesters tried to burn the wall around the compound. This is the second time the consulate has been attacked in a week; it was previously targeted on October 26. Protests in Iraq have reached their crescendo after a month in which 250 demonstrators have been killed. The Iraqi Prime Minister has been pressured to resign. Protesters have targeted the political party offices of Iranian-linked...

    A car stops its march in front of the red light. At the wheel, a 40-year-old lawyer looks at her cell phone to check the time. She is hoping to get home and see her children. Suddenly, a rumble is heard. In a matter of seconds, the thief enters the vehicle through the window and snatches her purse, which was lying on the floor of the passenger's seat. Terrified, she looks at the damage to her car. The window is crashed and the wallet is gone. Also gone are her money, the credit card and some pictures of her family....

    The Epoch Times ^ | October 21, 2019 | Mark Tapscott
    WASHINGTON—Judicial Watch made public on Oct. 21 a 2012 email chain showing multiple senior U.S. State Department executives used then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unsecured private email to discuss the most sensitive details of the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, died in the assault, which within hours was attributed by the Obama White House to an internet video that critically portrayed Islam and its founder, Mohammed. While Judicial Watch first sought the emails released on Oct. 21 in a 2014 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, they...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Four protests are planned today for President Donald Trump’s visit to Pittsburgh to speak at the Marcellus Shale Coalition Insight Conference downtown. The first protest began at 9 a.m. at the Gateway Center T station in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. The protesters marched from the T station over to Point State Park, where they blocked the roads near the Wyndham Hotel. The protesters carried a banner that read “Our solidarity will defeat White Nationalists,” and chanted, “Rise up,” and “You are not welcome here Donald Trump.”

    HONG KONG — Hong Kong protests intensified on Sunday as protesters and police resorted to new tactics after a ban on face coverings went into effect and a planned pro-democracy rally was declared unlawful. Protesters wore masks in defiance while waving American and British flags and singing the protest movement's anthem. Police fired tear gas and sprayed water cannons loaded with a caustic blue-dye to clear roads and identify protesters.

    There are ways to try to persuade someone to see your side of an issue or argument, and there are ways that not only won’t convince anyone, but are much more likely to just tick them off. Like standing in the middle of the street…with a banner…singing like idiots…when people are trying to get to work. One guy had enough of the climate change social justice BS Friday morning, and he took the required action to clear a street so he and other hard-working people could get to their jobs.

    Watergate is the ur-text for how Americans imagine the defeat of a sitting president, but it shouldn’t be how to think about the impeachment of Donald Trump. Watergate was a formative political experience for many of the older Democrats who run the House of Representatives these days. And the semi-fictionalized version of the scandal portrayed on film in All the President’s Men is an emotional and intellectual touchstone for many journalists. To this day, it’s conventional to denote the existence of a political scandal by appending “-gate” to a noun, as if “Watergate” had to with water rather than originating...

    In the midst of a human rights crisis and violent pro-democracy manifestations in China, Judicial Watch has obtained records that expose a troubling partnership between a public American university and the Chinese Communists at the heart of the abuses. The records show that the University of Arizona (UA), a taxpayer-funded institution with an enrollment of about 44,000, paid $100,000 to launch a Confucius Institute on its Tucson campus more than a decade ago and subsequently dedicated nearly $2 million and other public resources to keep it going. Confucius Institutes were founded by the Chinese government and are managed by China’s...

    Trauma creeps up on you when you are distracted. Someone bends down to pick up a piece of paper that fell on the floor of the MTR train carriage, and even if your eyes are on your phone, you catch that movement with your peripheral vision, and your heart skips a beat. The images come back unsolicited, and play in the inscrutable theatre of one’s brain: people begging to be spared, kneeling in that same metallic, silvery doorway, crying for help and mercy. Police officers don’t care: they storm the train, they beat people they suspect of being protesters with...

    In February 2017, the Washington Post’s Miller had the lead byline on a story based on leaks of Trump’s conversations with Australia’s prime minister and Mexico’s president. Six months later, the Post published the entire transcripts of both conversations in another Miller story. It was through such national security correspondents that anti-Trump sources -- intelligence officials -- pushed leaks of classified information and other tidbits intended to damage Trump into the media. There it merged with other anti-Trump currents in nearly every corner of the press, where it blossomed into Russiagate. After a nearly two-year investigation, the special counsel found...

      Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi are Putin's puppets. Let's see why. For the last three years Donald Trump has been falsely under assault from he left. Why? The phony dossier and more. Russia-linked accounts were said to have spent a grand total of $4700 in Google ads in 2016 to influence the elections. NADLER: According to meda reports, Google found evidence that Russian agents spent thousands of dollars to purchase ads on its advertising platforms that span multiple Google products as part of the Russian agents’ campaign to interference in the election, two years ago.

    The New York Times reported Friday that the wave of worldwide protests against climate change is partly being paid for by the Climate Emergency Fund, which is funded by a mega-wealthy trio that includes “the Kennedys and the Gettys.” The co-founders are Trevor Neilson, Rory Kennedy, and Aileen Getty — whose family fortune, ironically, was made in the oil business. Their money funds protests staged by “Extinction Rebellion” and other groups, the Times notes: Since its founding in July, the Climate Emergency Fund has distributed grants, (some as small as $2,000) to dozens of groups, including 350.org and others tied...

    Among the multitude of migrants waiting in Mexico to get asylum in the United States are thousands of Africans boldly demanding passage into the country. They are far more coordinated than their Central American caravan counterparts and have formed an official organization to spread their message and advocate on their behalf. The group accuses Mexican authorities of discrimination and racism and is ordering Mexico to grant visas that allow them to continue their trek north to seek “protection” in America. For about three months the Africans have been holed up in Tapachula, in the southeast Mexican state of Chiapas bordering...

    Climate activists demonstrating to coincide with the 2019 U.N. Climate Action Summit blocked intersections and snarled morning-commute traffic across Washington, D.C., Monday morning as they called on officials to take action on global warming. The group, called "Shut Down D.C.," has planned a week of activities to bring attention to climate change and convince national and international leaders to act. Monday's continuation of the "Global Climate Strike" follows worldwide climate protests on Friday, including a demonstration in New York City led by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg.

    Tampa, Fl - On September 10, students at the University of South Florida (USF) participated in a national day of action that was called by National Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) to speak out against the Trump administration’s attacks on undocumented immigrants.

During President Donald Trump’s tenure, his administration has engaged in escalating attacks against undocumented immigrants. Some of these attacks include Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detaining undocumented children in horrid camp conditions indefinitely, and building urban warfare training...

    Students at Liberty University in Virginia gathered Friday to protest in the wake of news reports containing allegations that school president Jerry Falwell Jr. improperly benefited from the institution and disparaged students in emails. Students joined together at the private evangelical university known for being an influential hub in conservative politics and held up signs calling for accountability and an investigation. Elizabeth Brooks, a junior majoring in politics and policy, told The Associated Press by phone that a recent Politico Magazine story as well as a Reuters report prompted the protest at the school in Lynchburg. She said about 35...
