The North Americans who want to murder you and your family for your beliefs are allied with the filthy ChiCom bastards.

Those North Americans are winning.

    Granted, it’s Reddit. This is a good resource for photos and videos. Look at it let it burn in real well. Network, train, and get or stay strong and fast.

    Don’t get on the train. You are better off dying while fighting with your teeth and fingernails. No matter what, don’t get on the train.

    The Chicoms can’t risk another Tiananmen Square. So they delocate them.

    I agree with Fred, better to die taking out as many guards as you can then and there than wherever they’re going to send you.

    Crazy Horse had it wrong, rather he should have said, “It is a good day to kill our enemies.”

    Marched onto a train ends one of two ways. 1). Death in the camp or 2). liberation from the camp, on the brink of death.

    These people are all going to experience #1. On their knees, hands bound behind their back, and a bullet to the back of the head. As is customary in communist China, the bill for the bullet goes to the remaining family members.

  10. On November 19, 2019 at 1:22 pm, George True said:

    Don’t get on the train. Riiight.. A bit hard to not get on the train when you are blindfolded, with your hands tied behind your back, and guards with AK-47’s are poking and prodding you along. These people were as good as dead the moment they were rounded up.

    A better admonition would be don’t allow them to apprehend you in the first place. These people should have fled the country, gone underground, or gone down fighting. Those are really the only options. Once they have you in custody, you WILL be getting into the boxcar.

    Before they even began this protest movement in Hong Kong, they should have armed themselves to the teeth. By hook or by crook, one way or another, they needed to acquire firearms and ammo. Whether they somehow smuggled them in, or bought them from the Triads, this needed to.be the first step. They knew who they were provoking – the most oppressive and murderous Communist regime ever.

    Can you imagine if each and every ringleader of this protest movement, instead of allowing themselves to be rounded up like sheep, had become a Dorner? They might have all eventually been killed, but they would have had a huge impact. Exponentially more huge than allowing themselves to be captured and herded like sheep.

  11. On November 19, 2019 at 4:03 pm, Fred said:

    My 19 year old son has been following this from the start. I told him early on that the protestors had no chance. I mean really what were they going to do? Stick a flower down the barrel of the chi com soldiers gun. Maybe DOX some high profile Chinese government official. Maybe chant no justice no peace, Hong Kong lives matter!

    I told him eventually they were going to send the soldiers in and that would be the end of that. Then he located some pictures of military vehicles on the web. They were disguised with add on components to make them look like civilian aid type vehicles but they weren’t.

    Tienimen Square guy that stood in front of the tank and would not let it pass you better believe that when they got their hands on him in a private setting well they really did him in. They probably took a tank battalion and drove over him and made his family watch just to make a point. Most of the world has already forgotten about that protest or they have never even learned of it to begin with.

    All them people getting on the train will be slave labor making Nike shoes complete with a certificate of authenticity signed by Colin kapernick until they can’t work anymore. Then they will just be shot.
    You give up your guns you get what you deserve.

    ‘George True’, and Fred (and all) –

    MANY had NOT forgotten about Tiananmen Square and its massacre, and had the strength to NOT to get on that train. Their determination gives me hope:

Canada Must Decide: More Trade With Communist China, Or Live Up To Our Values

Decoupling our economy from China before we become too dependent is the path our nation must take.

The increasingly brutal crackdown on Hong Kong protesters by Communist China, combined with China’s increasing aggression and provocation – not to mention their continued arbitrary detention of two Canadian Citizens – is raising difficult questions for Canada.

We now face a clear choice, and that choice is increasingly unavoidable:

Live up to our values, or increase our trade with Communist China.

Because, at this point, we can’t do both.

Even powerful American companies and brands (like the NBA) are discovering that the more you do business with China, the more you are forced to sacrifice your own values to the whims of the Communist Party.

The result is that China is exporting their authoritarian Communist system to the rest of the world, using trade as the cudgel to put other countries into a state of dependence.

And beyond that, we’ve already seen the hollowing out of Canada’s manufacturing sector, in large part because of China’s deceptive trade practices, currency devaluation, and dumping of product in markets across the globe.

Additionally, the majority of fentanyl coming into Canada and causing so much devastation arrives here from Communist China.

So, for all of these reasons, it is essential that we begin to decouple our economy from China.

Some will say that there is too much money to be made in China for us to decouple, and that trade is worth any cost to our values. But if that’s the direction Canada ends up taking, what is even the point of being a country?

If we have no values, no standards, and no willingness to defend what we claim to believe in as Canadians, then how can we hold our heads up high as a nation?

China doesn’t want trading partners, they want vassal states.

Now, some trade with China is certainly acceptable, in areas where China is desperate and thus can’t enforce demands in return. For food and natural resources which China can’t supply on it’s own, Canada loses nothing from trading with China, but when it comes to technology and manufacturing, trade with China puts our own economic and national security at risk.

And even in terms of food and natural resources, we must limit the expansion of trade with China, because relying too much on their market brings it’s own risk.

Thus, the solution is for Canada to impose large tariffs on imports from China in areas such as metals, military technology, and telecommunications (ban Huawei 5G), while putting limits on the exports of Canadian products to China. At the same time, producers should be compensated for losses from decoupling and we should seek out other markets (like India), where we can trade without throwing our values or national security in the trash.

We live in a dangerous world, and being dependent on trade with a nation like China represents far too big a risk to Canada. We must get rid of that risk before it’s too late, and that means we must begin the process of decoupling as soon as possible.

Leaked .Gov Documents Prove Muslims Are Being Rounded Up And Sent To Chinese Internment Camps

There’s now substantial evidence – in the Chinese government’s own words – that they are detaining Muslims in massive numbers.

403 pages of internal documents have been leaked to the New York Times that describe a clampdown in Xinjiang – a resource-rich territory located on the border of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Central Asia – where authorities have “corralled as many as a million ethnic Uighurs, Kazakhs and others into internment camps and prisons over the past three years.”

In Xinjiang, Muslim ethnic minority groups make up more than half the region’s population of 25 million. The largest group is the Uighurs. Beijing has fought with the Uighurs for decades, who have offered resistance to Chinese rule. 

The current crackdown began after a surge of anti-government and anti-Chinese violence, including ethnic riots in 2009 in Urumqi, the regional capital, and a May 2014 attack on an outdoor market that killed 39 people just days before Mr. Xi convened a leadership conference in Beijing to set a new policy course for Xinjiang.

The Chinese government has called these camps “job training centers” to fight Islamic extremism, but the documents seem to confirm the coercive nature of the crackdown in the words of the Chinese government. 

The campaign is being called “ruthless and extraordinary”. Senior party leaders are recorded ordering “drastic and urgent” action, including mass detentions. The leaked papers show how the country carried out its “most far-reaching internment campaign since the Mao era.”

President Xi Jinping laid the groundwork for the camps during speeches to officials in Xinjiang in April 2014, after Uighur militants stabbed more than 150 people at a train station, killing 31. In his speech, Xi called for “an all-out struggle against terrorism, infiltration and separatism using the organs of dictatorship and showing absolutely no mercy.”

Xi also said: “The methods that our comrades have at hand are too primitive. None of these weapons is any answer for their big machete blades, ax heads and cold steel weapons. We must be as harsh as them and show absolutely no mercy.”

Xi also urged his party to “emulate aspects of America’s war on terror after the Sept. 11 attacks.”

“We say that development is the top priority and the basis for achieving lasting security, and that’s right. But it would be wrong to believe that with development every problem solves itself,” Xi said in one speech. 

In another speech, he said: “After the United States pulls troops out of Afghanistan, terrorist organizations positioned on the frontiers of Afghanistan and Pakistan may quickly infiltrate into Central Asia. East Turkestan’s terrorists who have received real-war training in Syria and Afghanistan could at any time launch terrorist attacks in Xinjiang.”

The camps expanded rapidly in 2016 when Chen Quanguo was appointed new party boss for the region. He handed out Xi’s speeches to stay on message and implored his officials to “round up everyone who should be rounded up.” Any local leaders that stood in Chen’s way were immediately purged, including one official who was jailed.

And the leak suggests that there could be discontent from within the party. The Chinese, who often undertake policy making under the cloak of secrecy, are certainly not known for leaking internal government documents.

Since 2017, hundreds of thousands of Muslims have been detained in Xinjiang. One leaked document describes how to handle minority students returning home to Xinjiang in summer 2017 to find that their relatives have been detained. The document says that students should be informed that their relatives are receiving “treatment”.

One document ordered: “Keep up the detentions. Stick to rounding up everyone who should be rounded upIf they’re there, round them up.

Officials in Eastern Xinjiang drafted the Q and A script and distributed the guide across the region, urging officials to use it as a model. 

The document says: “Returning students from other parts of China have widespread social ties across the entire country. The moment they issue incorrect opinions on WeChat, Weibo and other social media platforms, the impact is widespread and difficult to eradicate.”

Authorities suspected that the answers wouldn’t work well with students and also supplied answers to follow up questions like: 

  • When will my relatives be released?
  • If this is for training, why can’t they come home?
  • Can they request a leave?
  • How will I afford school if my parents are studying and there is no one to work on the farm?

The guide recommends answers that get firmer in nature, eventually culminating telling students that their relatives have been “infected” by the “virus” of radical Islam and must be quarantined and cured. Even grandparents could not be spared, officials were told to say. 

One answer says: “If they don’t undergo study and training, they’ll never thoroughly and fully understand the dangers of religious extremism. No matter what age, anyone who has been infected by religious extremism must undergo study.”

What happens to those who don’t meet course completion standards?

Another says: “Treasure this chance for free education that the party and government has provided to thoroughly eradicate erroneous thinking, and also learn Chinese and job skills. This offers a great foundation for a happy life for your family.”

The authorities are using a scoring system to see who can be released from camps. Students are told that the system takes into account their daily behavior, which has a direct effect on when their relatives may be released.

“There must be effective educational remolding and transformation of criminals. And even after these people are released, their education and transformation must continue,” President Xi said during one trip to Xinjiang.

Chinese Imports Of U.S. Pork Soar To The Highest Ever As Beijing Faces Food Shortage Crisis

In a time when China is losing between a third and half of its pig herds as a result of the unprecedented decimation unleashed by African swine fever – less affectionately known as pig ebola – which has sent wholesale pork prices in China soaring to all time highs…

… and prompted local farmers to breed pigs the size of polar bears

… China is increasingly finding itself at America’s mercy.

As Bloomberg reports, as China’s hog herd is collapsing, Beijing’s imports of U.S. pork exploded to a weekly record.

According to USDA data, in the week ended Oct. 3, pig imports soared to 142,200 metric tons, more than 7 times greater than September’s total shipments of 19,900 tons.

China signaled it may import as much as 400,000 tons to stem a domestic shortfall, and it now appears that the US may be the easiest source of said pigs, which needless to say grants the US substantial leverage in the ongoing trade talks. The swine fever outbreak killed millions of pigs. The country also appeared poised to boost purchases of agriculture products as a good-will gesture before talks between Washington and Beijing on easing trade tensions.

Meanwhile, as BBG notes, volatility in hog futures in Chicago has surged to a record, spurred by speculation on exactly when Chinese demand would finally surface. The answer: right now.

The USDA data showed 123,500 tons are for shipment in 2020 with the balance set for the end of this year.

Back home, farmers are busy dealing with the impacts of winter weather approaching ten weeks earlier than normal…

Beijing Launches New Rule: Residents Must Pass Facial Recognition Test to Surf Internet

(Nicole Hao) The Chinese regime announced a new rule which requires residents to pass a facial recognition test in order to apply for an internet connection via smartphone or computer.

The rule will be implemented from Dec. 1, 2019. In addition, no cell phone or landline number can be transferred to another person privately.

This is an upgraded restriction after the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) required all applicants to present a valid ID and personal information to register for a cell phone or a landline number since January 2015.

New Rule:

MIIT published the new rule on its official website and distributed it to all telecom carriers on Sept. 27, which includes three main requests.

First, all telecom carriers MUST use facial recognition to test whether an applicant who applies for internet connection is the owner of the ID that they use since Dec. 1. At the same time, the carriers must test that the ID is genuine and valid.

Second, all telecom carriers MUST upgrade their service’s terms and conditions and notify all their customers that they are not allowed to transfer or resell their cell phone SIM card to another person by the end of November 2019.

Third, telecom carriers should help their customers to check whether there are cell phone or landline numbers that don’t belong to them but registered under their names since Dec. 1. For unidentified numbers, the telecom carries MUST investigate and close the lines immediately.

MIIT said in the notice that it will arrange for supervisors to check each telecom carrier’s performance, and will arrange inspections to make sure all carriers will follow the rule strictly.

Purpose:

“The reason why the Chinese regime asks people to register their real identities to surf the internet is because it wants to control people’s speech,” U.S.-based commentator Tang Jingyuan told The Epoch Times on Sept. 27.

Authorities arrested hundreds of Chinese people in recent years because they posted a topic that the regime deemed sensitive, including the most recent Hong Kong protests.

“MIIT’s new rule on using facial recognition to identify an internet user means the government can easily track their online activities, including their social media posts and websites they visit,” Tang said.“Then these people become scared of sharing their real opinions online because their comments could anger the authorities and they could get arrested for it.”

Tang concluded: “I think MIIT’s new rule takes away freedom of speech from Chinese people completely.”

Facial Recognition in China:

The Chinese regime has used facial recognition systems to monitor people for several years now. In cities and public spaces such as train stations, airports, government buildings, and entrances of museums, police use smart glasses to check each passerby’s identity and whether they have a criminal record.

On the streets, millions of surveillance cameras capture and track people’s movements.

At crosswalks, facial recognition systems record jaywalkers, who are then fined 20 yuan ($2.81), and docked points on their social credit score. The Chinese regime’s social credit system assigns each citizen a score of social “trustworthiness.” A person with a low social credit score may not be allowed to board a train or airplane, or their child may not be admitted to a reputable school.

Inside classrooms, facial recognition technology monitors each student and reports their actions to the teacher and parents.

Even inside public restrooms, tourists and residents have to use facial recognition system to get toilet paper.

The Chinese regime hopes to install enough surveillance cameras to cover the entire country.

According to the latest report of U.S. based market research firm IDC, China spent $10.6 billion on video surveillance equipment in 2018, and spending will reach $20.1 billion in 2023. 64.3 percent of the spending in 2018 accounted for surveillance cameras.

IDC reported on Jan. 30 that it predicted China would have 2.76 billion surveillance cameras installed in 2022.

Shocking Footage Leaked From Inside Chinese Re-Education/Organ Harvesting Camps

Chinese government defines million-man camps as ‘vocational’

Leaked online footage that appears to show hundreds of blindfolded and shackled prisoners in a Muslim-dominant region of China is believed to be authentic, according to a European security source.

The detainees are thought to be Uighur Muslims, a large minority group within China.

“We’ve examined the footage and believe it to be genuine,” the source told Sky News, adding that it was likely taken this year.

“It shows up to 600 prisoners being moved; they’re shackled together, have shaved heads, are blindfolded and have their hands locked behind their backs. This is typical of the way the Chinese move this type of prisoner.”

From Sky News:

The footage, posted anonymously on Tuesday on Twitter and YouTube, shows lines of men, heads shaved, hands bound behind their back, sitting in lines on the floor or being moved by guards at a station in the city of Korla in Xinjiang, northwest China.

United Nations experts have spoken of “credible reports” of China holding one million Uighurs and other Muslim minorities at mass detention camps in Xinjiang.

China insists the alleged detention sites are “vocational” centres aimed at training and skills development. In a report earlier this year to counter criticism, the government said it had arrested nearly 13,000 people it described as “terrorists” and had broken up hundreds of “terrorist gangs” in Xinjiang since 2014.

During the 1980s and 90s, Maoist China had been using re-education camps against political dissidents, usually blindfolding and shackling them before marching them out by the hundreds for their execution and subsequent organ harvesting.

“The Xinjiang region of far-western China has been a hotbed of violence for centuries,” Listverse reported in July. “In 1775, the Qing Empire, an ethnic Manchu dynasty that ruled all of China from Beijing, began the liquidation of the Dzungar people, or ethnic Mongols who lived in Xinjiang, following a rebellion against Qing rule. In total, between 480,000 and 500,000 Dzungars, or 80 percent of their population, were killed by Qing soldiers and their allies. The remaining 20 percent were forced into slavery.”

600 people being marched outside in blindfolds and shackles, as the video shows, is starkly similar to how Maoist China rounded up prisoners for execution.

It’s not outside the realm of possibility that the same Maoist genocidal system is being implemented here, as history has shown the fate of these groups within China time and time again.

China Releases 10,000 Tons Of Pork From Strategic Reserves To Fight Famine

Report: 1 in 4 pigs on Earth were lost this year(!), prompting China to release 10,000 tons of pork from their strategic national reserves this week.

That works out to about 6 grams per person in China. That’s like asking 50 people to share a single can of SPAM for dinner.

This is the latest indicator of the systemic stress on modern agriculture, and presages further tapping of strategic reserves. Christian recalls the Great Chinese Famine and warns of the dangers of centralized, collectivist policies, and the illusion of superabundance.
