  1. When you are a Master of propaganda like the US you obviously don’t have to worry about Minneapolis or issues in Iraq , Syria or Venezuela where you could be culpable ….What a world we live in….lol

    1. These are abnormal times, we will again be who we were before the Cons took over. The Republican Party has turned into a bunch of Cons doing Con jobs on anyone who will listen and thereby turned themselves into RepubliCons.

  2. Two thoughts-
    1. US should be inviting and welcoming any person from Hong Kong to the US- and offering a path to citizenship. We better hurry up before the Hong Kongers all go to the UK. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to add hard working, democratic people to our citizenry.

    I have already written off next 4 Years- hoping and praying for a presidential candidate with presidential abilities, a vision for the US for the next few decades, and beyond and the guts to make it happen.

In order to deflect attention, he clamps down on Hong Kong. The last thing he wants to another year of demonstrations while the domestic anger is raging about the economic carnage on the mainland. High unemployment can lead to political instability and feed an undesirable insurgency.

  5. So far, the mainland is calm and cool. The riots is in Hong Kong, no big deal. They fight each other themselves. Who cares. Just like MN.
