Very interesting insights into China's practices through a billionaires eyes who is very well connected. He talks about Chinese officials who are taken out, kidnapped,etc.. How China made Jack Ma of Alibaba step down because he got too big.

The Chinese govt are the original gangsters we DO NOT want to play with. They don't care about their population, regulations, only money and power.

Their Belt Road initiative preys on bankrupt countries and swallows them up by loaning them money.

They're playing the long game folks. They can see past our next election cycle.



Break past the bad english and give it a listen.

Just about anyone who's been paying attention knows this.


That's why the world is supporting Hong Kong's defiance against the CCP takeover. What we should really be posting is not how bad China is, we know that already. We should be posting why we need to help Hong Kong overcome China.

This is not news at all, not only in China either.

Most of the world operates under the same/similar practices.

Hong Kong is an internal matter for China, everyone should stay out of it, just as we in the US expect others not to meddle in our internal affairs.

Except, the rest of the world is deeply involved in our affairs. Hillary was the chosen one for China, and many other countries who don't necessarily have our best interests in mind. They are free to pump any candidate they choose full of money so these politicians will put the interests of other countries ahead of the best interests of the American people.

You may want a refresher on France's involvement in our revolutionary war with the Brits.

China does not have communism. They have a communist party but they NEVER practice communism.


What the CCP is today is best described as conservative fascist capitalism. They overlap quite a bit with our Republican party.

Fascists never call themselves by that name. In this country, they call themselves the GOP, in China they hide under communism.

In CCP China, there is:

- no liberal media. All media is state-run and tote the party line.
- party members tend to be very conservative
- very little tax; no property tax, no sales tax, no estate tax, no car registration, etc.
- very little regulation, or not enforced at all.
- very pro-business.
- very pro-military
- very pro-police
- very pro-lineage; many major party bosses are sons of someone important/rich. Just like Bush, Romney, Trump, etc.
- very close to Russia
- does not believe in climate change
- Trump is a populist with support in the rural blue collar, just like the populist Chairman Mao.
- Creates fake news to support their cause
- blames minorities and foreigners for their problems.
- believe in tariff
- does not believe in freedom of speech (hence no liberal press)
- hates gays
- hate Muslims
- hates other brown-skinned people
- believes in capital punishment
- has a military industrial complex
- no national healthcare
- very little to non-existent safety net
- hates Google, Facebook, and other US tech companies



The above CCP belief are literally the modern GOP. With the only difference being guns, religion and abortions. Which basically means the CCP is GOP without God and guns.
