Dems hold on to Louisiana gov. seat despite Trump visits Kaepernick's agent not optimistic about signing HONG KONG After an intense, day-long battle, police surrounded anti-government protesters inside a university late Sunday and began to make mass arrests, escalating the struggle over Hong Kongs campuses in the citys now-six-month struggle for democracy.
Skirmishes between police and protesters raged into the night outside Hong Kongs Polytechnic University, leaving the air thick with tear gas and a police vehicle burning.
As police continued to bombard protesters with water cannon, they warned stronger measures could follow.

We will use the minimal force, police said in a Facebook video. We are asking the rioters to stop assaulting the police using cars, gas bombs and bows and arrows. Otherwise we will use force including live rounds.

When everyone in Hong Kong is arrested will they bring in fresh students from China ? LOL
Tienanmen, piece by piece.
Expect a lot of those arrested to “disappear”.
They'd get better loyalty to the Communist Cause by importing "American" students...
You'd get more hard work out of a bed of oysters.
Its valuable to consider which groups and specific investors have had stake in attacking Hong Kongs currency peg when considering who is financially supporting the protesters.
“Bows and arrows”.
What Freedom Lovers resort to without a Second Amendment.
America should cut off China 100%. Put nukes in Taiwan. - the biggest and dirtiest.
They'll kill every one of them and cut out the most valuable organs for donations.
Bingo, no more ChiCom visas, goods, or services.
Just be prepared for the global depression and blowback to follow, but at some point we need to choose our principles over short term financial gains ...
Wow, the opposite would happen. The repatriation of industry would make the US economy roar like never before!!! It would be awesome to see.
The environmentalists will never let it happen.
Some English diplomat reported in official documents that over 10,000 died at Tienanmen Square. Shot, then run over by tanks to grind them up, then washed down the drains.
China is already colonizing Hong Kong.
You can watch it live here.
And Steve Lookner is covering it also.
The ChiNazis are winning this one it looks like.
In the long term, I agree.
Just like Tienamen, the Chinese government offered concessions but the student/protesters did not take that, accept the win and give a little. The hardliners in the Chinese government will have by now said time to get tough and tell those that said to go easy you had your try.
Instead of a step forward, it will be a crushing step back.
The students offered multiple concessions. All were refused by the coppers.
The coppers in this case are PLA.
Many pictures of them yesterday with bayonnets affixed. Sound like they’re interested in negotiations? Negotiate what? Chicoms win, HK bends the knee. That’s how the chicoms negotiate.
Anyone who thinks the makers of ‘pie’ will abide by any negotiated concessions is not very bright?
‘Donald’ is the British Ambassador when the massacre too place.
“Students linked arms but were mown down, wrote Donald. APCs then ran over the bodies time and time again to make, quote pie unquote, and remains collected by bulldozer.
As if this wasnt atrocious enough, the governments criminal and brutal activity that day got even worse. With no regard for the families of these victims, not to mention their identities, what was left of them was disposed of in an unspeakably callous manner.
Remains incinerated and then hosed down drains, Donald wrote.”
Lots of good pictures at that link. Oddly enough, ones that never seemed to make it into western media...funny thing that...Huh...
Thank you for the link. I like Steven Lookner’s videos; I’ll check that out too!
