China Needs Hong Kong to just keep doing Hong Kong

Now more than ever China needs Hong Kong to remain an engine of Capitalism.
We’ve talked before about Socialist Countries existing at the teat of Capitalist Countries. Socialism cannot create wealth.  Nothing has changed.
When China took control of Hong Kong in 1997 it was widely thought the Socialist country would quickly destroy all that made Hong Kong prosperous. Many believed, with good reason, that the oppressive, individual hating, top-down governing ideology would not be able to tolerate the freedom and individual liberty associated with Hong Kong.
Surprising the world, China instead chose to isolate Hong Kong from the rest of the country. It was a brilliant move by horrible people.  China held Hong Kong as an asset in its ‘portfolio’ with the realization that the prosperity Hong Kong created was essential to the perpetuation of China’s oppressive Socialist Ideology.
Don’t be fooled… Hong Kong remained an irritant to many of the Elitist Chinese Politicians. But economically it was a sound decision if it was the life of the oppressive, human hating, Chinese Socialist ‘Utopia’ which ultimately mattered. Those 1997 Autocrats in waiting were on the precipice of unimaginable wealth to be gleaned from a relatively new trade partnership with the United States. The full absorption of Hong Kong could wait a little while until a new engine of wealth was fully realized…
Fast forward to 2019…
The overt move to bring Hong Kong ‘into the fold’ of China’s Democratic Socialist Dictatorship has been underway for a little over a decade.  But a disruption, an Orange Swan if you will, occurred which turned the finely set table over.

Suddenly something changed.

The people of Hong Kong rediscovered their value when the prettiest girl in the room decided she ‘ain’t got no sugar’.
China’s ‘new’ engine of wealth, the United States, decided not to play anymore.  Hong Kong was back!
This move alone has thrown China’s long term plans into question.
Why?

To reiterate…

The resistance from the United States to the contemporary trade agreements with China has provided Hong Kong with the ability to resist… making Hong Kong important once again. China once again needs them… badly…

China’s long term existence is questionable, at best, without the United States and is certainly headed for a catastrophe without both the United States and Hong Kong combined.

This is an important Global event and deserves all of our attention.


LAW!? I AM THE LAW!

Last Night Jack Nicholson revisited his role as Colonel Jessup

Sorry.

IRS Commissioner Koskinen tried to channel Colonel Jessup but failed to generate any of the character’s sympathetic aspects and focused only on the Smugness:

“You have already said, multiple times today, that there was no evidence that you found of any criminal wrongdoing,” Gowdy said. “I want you to tell me: What criminal statutes you have evaluated?”

“I have not looked at any,” the IRS commissioner admitted.

“Well then how can you possibly tell our fellow citizens that there is no criminal wrongdoing if you don’t even know what statutes to look at?” Gowdy followed-up.

“Because I’ve seen no evidence that anyone consciously –“

“Well how would you know what elements of the crime existed? You don’t even know what statutes are in play,” Gowdy said, visibly annoyed. “I’m going to ask you again: What statutes have you evaluated?”

“Uh,” the IRS commissioner stumbled, “I think you can rely on common sense–“

“Common sense? Instead of the criminal code, you want to rely on common sense? No, Mr. Koskinen, you can shake your head all you want to, commissioner. You have said today that there’s no evidence of criminal wrongdoing and I’m asking you what criminal statutes you have reviewed to reach that conclusion.”

“I reviewed no criminal statutes,” said the IRS commissioner.

You want to know what is wrong with our Government?

Commissioner Koskinen is what’s wrong with our Government.  All of the Bureaucrats that see the world as he does are what’s wrong with our Government.  An institution that is so accustomed to ‘being the law’ and see no reason to know the law is what’s wrong with our Government.

Elitist, Smug Liberal Progressives have taken over the Government from the top down.  It happened over time.  It is complete.

Now that there has been an unabridged War declared on the only opposing Ideology it is presenting itself for all to see.

The Koskinen’s, Lerner’s, et al. are coming out of the shadows into the sun.

In light of Jonathan Gruber’s video taped Honesty… I felt this was worth a repost, just as a reminder that they All think you’re Stupid and they’re above your Stupid laws.


Trivia for Progressives…

Who got the United States into Vietnam?

Who escalated our involvement in Vietnam?

Who got the United States out of Vietnam?

I’ll look for your answers in comments…

Statists only please.

Cheating is OK because I expect it from you.


Holy Crap Batman!

What are these guys NOT doing!?

ZING!

AP phone records obtained by Obama Administration…

It’s the Headline on Drudge, as it should be.

The Cheerleaders for this Administration have been betrayed!

POW!

Will they let this stand, or will the AP write a series of stories offering how obtaining media phone records is “no big deal”?

Will President Obama hold another press conference trying to re-write history like the one he held today on Benghazi and the IRS oppression while acting angry that he has to have it?

Will Attorney General Holder have to resign… or will he get a raise?

WHAMMO!

Will President Nixon return from the grave and voice his approval of the current Administrations conduct?

Will the Obama Administration just continue doing whatever they want until it just becomes funny and we all give up?

Stayed Tuned…

Same Bat time… Same Bat Channel!

(I know it’s tempting to sit back and laugh at the very people who believed this guy to be a Savior and his Ideology to be Enlightened… but this is beyond the pale and should be a very scary moment for all of us.  Is this a genuine Meltdown?  Is “Impeach” going to rise on the “most searched term” rankings?  At some point the buck can’t stop at everyone else’s desk.  You simply don’t bite the hand that feeds you… ZOWIE! )
