Fresh "Hong Kong A. P." from Bloomberg Daybreak Asia
"Radio dot com and via the Bloomberg business app. 9 in the morning in Hong Kong were an hour away from the China data equities will begin trading in the mainland and in Hong Kong at the bottom of the hour. If you're joining from the region, good morning, I'm Doug Krishna at the Bloomberg interactive broker studio in New York. And I'm Juliette Sully in Singapore markets coming online this hour. Let's get all the latest with Bloomberg's friend Kurt has seen Hong Kong Brian. We've had a little bounce in equities across the region, but I guess the emphasis should be on little right now the MSCI Asia Pacific index is up four tenths of 1%. Fairly solid gains in Tokyo where the nikkei is up about 8 tenths of a percent, 222 points. Japan's economy did recover to its pre-pandemic size in the second quarter. Consumer spending picked up following the end of some of the curbs that COVID curbs in the country. GDP grew at an annualized pace of 2.2% in the second quarter. It was below the median estimate of 2.6%, but it enabled the economy to grow to above where it was at the end of 2019 and also the first quarter GDP was revised to an expansion from a prior contraction. Other markets, as Jules mentioned, were getting the opening here and the tye X in Taiwan is up about a half of 1%. China futures are trading in Singapore. They're down about four tenths of a percent and the straights times index in Singapore has moved just a little to the downside down about it. One tenth of a percent. And we've been pretty solid in Sydney this morning with gains of about half a percent. A lot of data coming in China that could change the mix. And we've got earnings coming up this week. And we'll also be looking at just a lot of other info coming in the fed minutes and such. So keep a close eye on that. Bitcoin hanging in there with a gain over 24,000 gold now, $1815 and 80 cents a Troy ounce. Doug to you. All right, Brian, thanks. Well, as you mentioned, in less than an hour we'll get the Chinese data on things like industrial output and retail sales, fixed asset investment will also be a part of it as well as home prices and perhaps some clues on the direction of policy in the China for the remainder of the year. Here is Bloomberg's Russian chin with the preview. China will likely report a further recovery in its economy in July, retail sales probably grew 5% from a year ago, up from 3.1% in June. That's according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of economists, with business and consumer activity gradually picking up with the relaxation of COVID restrictions. Meantime, the recovery momentum in the industrial sector likely stayed intact. Industrial output is estimated to have grown about 4.4% in July, up from 3.9% to the previous month. Still, July's rebound could be short lived with COVID outbreaks in popular tourism destinations. Authorities recently shut down parts of Tibet's capital and left thousands of tourists stuck on the tropical island of hainan to contain infections. The Chinese government will publish data at 10 a.m. Beijing time. In Hong Kong, I'm Rosalind Chen, Bloomberg daybreak, Asia. Well, Saudi Aramco has posted the biggest quarterly adjusted profit of any listed company globally. The state controlled oil producer set up posted about $48 billion in profit, and that is up from about 26 billion a year earlier. Aramco has benefited from high crude prices in production since Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Now the company is using its profit to reduce debt and invest in a huge expansion of its production capacity. Aramco said it expects demand for its oil and chemicals to remain high for the rest of the decade. We are at 5 minutes past the hour or nearly time for an update on global news. Well, another congressional delegation is in Taiwan with the story at Baxter and the Bloomberg newsroom in San Francisco Ed. Yeah, this one led by senator Ed Markey Doug for a two day visit issues bilateral relations regional security

Dana Goldberg and Stephanie Are Giddy Over This Week's Trump Raid
"Know what to say about how good this week has been and it's only Thursday still. I mean, it has been blissful. A G and I were talking about it on the podcast yesterday. She's just, you know, Trump's walking around going, I'm innocent, but which one of you has the wire? And then I said, but which one of you is bugged? Yes. Yes, Travis. Oh, we could say something on the safe. Mick Mulvaney was on scene, and this morning. He said that only 6 to 8 people know about that safe and Mar-a-Lago. Oh. Who could it be? Oh my God. It's like a game of clue. It's just getting. It's like mystery date, but better. Now he's going to be sad he wasn't there, Dana, 'cause the Trump lawyer said she saw ten to 15 FBI vehicles, including a rider truck. You know how he loves to pretend to drive the trucks. And drugs are a big trick. Do we have him doing it? I love big drops, Hong Kong. Doesn't he doesn't he always pretend? For photo ops to ride the stop reaching for the wheels, sir, you need to stop reaching for the wheel. Okay, she spoke to Trump while the raid was underway, and he expressed shock about the FBI search. This is massive job done right. Has required more than 1500 pieces of heavy equipment, one of the largest cranes anywhere in the world and look forward to seeing it. I love cranes. I love trucks of all. Not the rider trucks at the FBI. I took your illegal away and yes, this is but you know, the fact that he expressed shocking that this is what Mary Trump said yesterday, I think, is that this is the first time his life he's been without protection of the office of the presidency of the banks of his father. I mean, he's shocked because why wouldn't he be? He's gotten away with everything his entire life. But she's also said and we need to follow it. He's that list of inventory that he said he has. They're going to say they planted something. They were already starting to say that. That's what he's alluding to, and all of these will no one was there. The lawyers weren't there. The FBI agents had full reign. It's coming. So we all need to be prepared that it's coming. Yeah, I would say I was quoting Rachel Bennett offer earlier said, I think what we find at the end of the day is going to make our jaws drop as much as nothing you think nothing would surprise you about Donald Trump. What would be worth hiding and going to prison for for ten months? Jim Jordan seems to think it's golf balls. That's what they took boxes of golf balls and a raincoat. I'm like, he doesn't have a raincoat. He doesn't know how to use a rain umbrellas. So I'm sure that's not what's in the boxes, Jim.

Author Steven Mosher Explains How China Breeds Pandemics
"A major work is out now. I love these politically incorrect guides. I have learned an immense amount from them. And you have now a written when was it published just this week last week last month, the on off the presses, the publication date was this week, and so the politically incorrect guy to pandemics. I love it. There's no doubt it is now on my list to read because it's you and because it's the subject. So give me, give me some examples of a politically incorrect take on pandemics. Well, first of all, people need to know that China is the great breeding ground of pandemics, especially under the Chinese Communist Party. That back in 1958, there was something called the Asian fluid killed a million people around the world. Why? Because when it originated in South China in the province of guizhou in the southwest of China, the Chinese Communist Party covered it up. It did not see fit to notify the World Health Organization that there was a dangerous new virus on the loose, the tens of thousands of Chinese were dying. And it became a pandemic and spread around the world. Only later did genetic evidence trace it back to China. A far too late to do any good in terms of curbing the pandemic. Same thing happened again. Same playbook, 1967, 68, with what was called the Hong Kong flu. Now, Dennis, it wasn't the Hong Kong flu. It was the Mainland China flu, the people of Hong Kong were furious at being having it mislabeled. But China did the same thing. The Chinese Communist Party did not notify the World Health Organization, covered up the epidemic, let it spread around the world until over a million people died. But the real, the real troubling episode and the one that should have clued us into the danger from China as the great breeding ground of pandemics happened in 2002, 2003. This was the SARS one coronavirus epidemic. We're living through the SARS two. SARS one happened. I began in November 16th of 2002, when a snake cellar in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong became ill with a coronavirus, a snake coronavirus, in that case, not a bad coronavirus. And he died fairly quickly after that. Thousands of people died in China in the months following. And what did China do? The Chinese Communist Party hid the breakout of this deadly coronavirus. It silenced whistleblowers. It did not notify the World Health Organization, and it was only when Canadian intelligence thank God, Canadian intelligence services picked up wire transmissions in China about the spread of a dangerous new virus that the world went to China and said, what's going on and China belatedly admitted that it had an epidemic on its hands
Dan Horowitz: Masks Are a Religious Article for Government Control
"No this is the new man of the cloth It's a sacred article It's a religious article It's a religious belief And there's a lot involved here Number one it's very visible So it's a constant reminder of subjugation Yes That you are under our control It's a constant reminder of fear and panic It also is part of a dehumanization program If they want us all to be a bunch of QR codes this is what they're doing in China and Hong Kong now they're nothing more than an item in the grocery store that you have to check your QR code So you take away your face made in the image of God and also there's things you're taking away your immune system and the image of God A lot of people don't realize that you know when you ask what's the first line of defense with your immune system They'll think well the macrophages and lymphocytes and T cells It's actually your skin Because it can only enter your body in certain places And God did not design you to have a conduit elongating that entire process And so it's not surprising that every insane thing that the government has told us to do turns out not only not to work but causes harm and I mention in here also was an Italian study that really did not get enough attention Could you imagine that they never bothered to study for years for ready two years whether this increases your CO2 levels putting this over your face having children wear it in the heat Do you know that in some military bases in a 100° heat there still doing drills with this And what does that give you an Italian pre printed study came out in May that showed that usage was associated with an increase in health due to level that's greater than the safe level and this was after just a short period of wearing it This is not okay

Dems Want to Jail People Who Question the Efficacy of Vaccines
"And The New York Times wrote this article in 2021 I was talking about before the break and this is what they said I remember reading this and I was like you know do you think The New York Times is aware that this is what's happening in the United States Are they essentially writing this And I'm thinking to myself this is basically might as well be writing about America right now but all right so The New York Times wrote this They said residents now swarm police hotline with reports about disloyal neighbors or colleagues The Hong Kong police had opened a hotline for reporting suspected violations of the security law and in the 6 month period of time there were more than a 100,000 messages And just at 6 months I mean if you guys remember mayor de Blasio at one point had opened up a social distancing tip line so you could like snitch on people But remember always keep this in mind Snitches end up in ditches just to let you know So don't be a snitch Nobody likes to snitch But anyways so he had set that up And then if you look at there was this Rasmussen pool that just blows my mind but it makes a ton of sense It's very instructive for the way the left operates and the way they think But almost half of Democrats wanted to find and imprison people Purely just for questioning the efficacy of vaccines So people like me you know nearly half of Democrats wanted people like me and some sort of government gulag This is according of Democrats that is And unfortunately I moved down here in Florida so that's not going to happen Maybe if I was still back in New York fortunately I've got the best governor in the country a real leader governor Ron DeSantis who has been leading the fight for freedom showing the rest of the country There's a different way But probably if we didn't have the Second Amendment maybe I would have ended up in a gulag Do you think they allow for bring your own wine or something
Which Nation Is More Motivated to Go to War?
"Should be biased in the American direction. You should be wanting America to win any conflict. So if we were kind of in a coma for 30 years and we snap out of it and they said, okay, which side is more ready for war? Well, let's look at something that really can't be measured, motivation. Which nation is more motivated right now. The Chinese Communist Party or the American government. Now our government is motivated to put our entire country through the shredder, China is taking land. They have eliminated Hong Kong. It's done. It's over. Hong Kong is nothing but a memory. I'm struck by that famous scene in 1984, great book, all of you should read it at least once a year. You'll find something new every time. Where they just cross stuff out in the newspaper. They set up that didn't exist. That didn't exist, that is precisely what they did to Hong Kong. It doesn't exist anymore. Are you kidding me? Hong Kong is nothing more than a memory. And in fact, that memory we are going to eliminate Hong Kong is actually now call I want to make sure I get this right. That's right. It is the minor area of south Shenzhen. That's Hong Kong. The beautiful history and once free place of Hong Kong has been eliminated. So do you think we're prepared for the next military conflict?

Charlie Welcomes Lauren Chen to the Show
"We are joined by Lauren Chen, who is a social and political commentator. It's a fair way to put it. Anything but vlogger, I think about vlogger. Thank you for having me. What do you have to do to become a vlogger? I mean, pretty much just film yourself and put it on the Internet. It's a very low bar, which is why I try to avoid it. And usually what you're filming is like putting on makeup or you just do in pranks bro, so. Yeah, I mean, the thing that when I talk to younger audiences, when I know we have a societal problem, is when I ask them, what do you want to do when you grow up? They're like, I want to be an influencer. Oh no, no. And I'm like, there's nothing good that's going to come out of this. Yeah, I have my husband's little cousin. She's like 9 or ten and she wants to be a YouTuber. She actually for Christmas asked for like a ring light and stuff. And I know it's strange because I have a YouTube channel, but I'm actively trying to convince her again, so you don't want this. You don't want this. Don't do this to yourself. Yeah, I mean, if you want to know the road ahead, ask those coming back. There's nothing fulfilling. There's other things in life. So introduce yourself to our audience, you have a big following and are well respected, so you're from Canada originally. Yes, I'm originally from Canada, but I Hong Kong you said, right? You grew up in Hong Kong where my father is from. So pretty much my parents birthplaces just hate liberty right now, which is a little bit depressing. Things aren't going so great in the homeland. But yeah, I'm in Nashville. We love Tennessee and I do YouTube videos as well as write some articles. I like to talk about politics and culture and the way that the two intersect, which I think politics is downstream from culture, and I think for the longest time, the right was losing young people because we were so focused on politics and not on culture. And I wish I could just throw Thomas souls basic economics at a young person and have them be a conservative, but we know it doesn't work
The 2nd Amendment Protects ALL Other Amendments
"All the other amendments. Now, if we are not clear about why that is the intent of the Second Amendment, then it becomes nothing more than just a self defense argument. And then they'll say, well, then why do you need an AR-15 just to protect yourself? Now, there is a good argument for that. If you know about the LA riots and the kind of legendary Korean storekeepers that went on their roof and protected themselves using AR-15s against the rioters, there is a good reason for self defense. But that's not the intent of it, and it will make us profoundly less free as a country. If we're not clear about why we have the Second Amendment. So right now, about 26 million people in Shanghai, China, are locked down. They can not leave their apartment buildings. What would Shanghai look like right now? If they had a Second Amendment in China, what would Hong Kong have looked like a couple years ago, when China just annexed Hong Kong, if every one of the Hong Kong freedom protesters had an AR-15, slung around their back. Now, this means they had to use it, but as soon as the people have weapons, it becomes a negotiation, and it no longer is a hostage situation. If you do not have a Second Amendment, the government can take you hostage at any time. If only one side has the guns, then one side gets the determine whether or not you are free. Now, if you
John Zmirak: 'First China Came for the Uyghurs'...
"Volkswagen back, I'm talking to John's mirac Jon it doesn't have people can read your stuff at stream dot org stream dot org. What else should we talk about? Well, Jason Jones and I co authored another piece at the stream called first China came for the Uyghurs and the Vatican said nothing. I don't know if people following China news. The most prominent Christian in China has just been arrested. Cardinal Joseph zen, 90 years old, he's the cardinal of Hong Kong. So he's from the part of China that was free until 1998 under British administration. And then was turned over to communist China. On the promise that it would retain its free political system. Of course, like all promises made by communists, that turned out to be a lie. And there have been crackdowns and arrests and China put into place a law that anyone in Hong Kong violated the Communist Party's authority could be shipped to Mainland China where the courts and the juries would be much stricter. Cardinal zen helped set up a charity fund that would help fund the defense of people against such extradition orders. China just arrested him and everyone else involved in the foundation.

A Top Lawyer Agrees With AJ—Amber Heard Is the Primary Instigator
"So this lawyer source of mine told me you're right, AJ, there is absolutely two perpetrators in here, but Amber Heard is the primary instigator. This is a tippy top lawyer. Not on the case, but tippy top. He has some understanding of domestic violence issues. He specialized in family law and domestic violence cases in Hong Kong. He even wrote a thesis on this subject. He said, Amber Heard's position in this case is a classic approach in that domestic violence is always physical and perpetrated by men. However, and I said, this yesterday, domestic violence is more often than not emotional, psychological, and uses fear of threat. Remember that fear of threat. And what he's seeing so far is a highly manipulative woman who sought to provoke her husband to violence. This is a tippy top lawyer talking. She can't hide her true character on the stand. The way she is in personating Johnny Depp's voice tells me she is a calculated manipulative and vile person. She is conceded and is convinced that she will prevail. I don't think she will. Nor do I. He said there's nothing authentic about her. The revelation about the makeup palette tells me not only is she a liar, but she is pathological and a habitual art. And by the way, let me just put a pin in that for a second, guys. People who are victims of domestic violence are typically scared of the person committing the alleged domestic violence. If you listen to Amber Heard's talk on the tapes, she is going him. She's doting Johnny Depp making fun of him, poking the bear. That's not what somebody does if they suffer from domestic violence. Use your heads, guys.
"hong kong a. p." Discussed on CFR On the Record
"Kong permanent resident and you commit a crime outside the hong kong s the. I think that insults everybody in this session but to just add to that. It's not what happens in the session and unfortunately it could be everything that we might have said. Thirty years ago or what we might have said in a classroom. Or what is the the really quick. Go back under non-retroactivity. Unless we really stop. You know that truck. From rolling over everyone. I want to say. We only have fifteen minutes left. And i want to emphasize that most dentists and sharon have written many things that are eye-opening in highly informative about this subject and apropos of yesterday's hearing of the us china economic and security review commission I've just read before the program before teen age single-spaced testimony submitted by michael davis. That is there another admirable analysis. What's taking place and if you're new to the game that's wonderful place to start to but let's get the next question august. We'll take the next question from don clark. Please accept the on mute now. Prompt pie this actually just to answer jerry's question about a liability and there's an interesting kind of story there because when the national security law i came out of course everybody was asking this very question. What about you know. Foreigners non hong kong residents non-citizens who outside of hong kong You know make remarks You know allegedly promoting hong kong independence and the hong kong government put out a video featuring very charming young woman. Who said everybody's asking this question are known in. Are foreigners going to be reliable and You know this is the worst. You don't need to worry as long as you don't say anything. Subverting hong kong independence you're not liable. So they made very clear. Yeah the answer is yes. Non hong kong citizens outside of kong. Saying something that offends the hong kong government. You are liable so i think even passing through hong kong airport is probably not a wise idea. Thank or don. If i may just add that if you have commemorated the june fourth tenement massacring you could be charged for subversion which is what's happening to the leader of the hong kong alliance group done. I'm relying on the fact that i'll get a suspended sentence because find older..
"hong kong a. p." Discussed on CFR On the Record
"Collusion and other crimes are going back. Like in the case of jimmy lai back to twenty nineteen and then he in case of the hong kong alliance back three decades. I mean that is retroactive. So these are really serious. Legal issues of retroactive application. And the reason i raise it is i have been rather Concerned as a human rights lawyer by the way in which retro-activity has been raised and many of these discussions and then moves on as the other than that. Mrs lincoln. did you enjoy the show. Kind of segue. And i just don't understand how we don't pause. Stop dead right there and say whoa wait. What about richard activity. So let me let me say my conclusion before. I have to address germany's what's to be done. I don't think that it's so much mainland of human rights as the you know the p especially now since twenty seventeen under siege in pinks leadership is doing exactly what it says it would do and not what it promised to the hongkong people and to the international community if we the the assault on civil society media education sector the trade union sector and rule of law reflects clearly beijing's deployment of its full arsenal of social control tools in the service of a clear national agenda. And on that. I would say there's no vagueness no hiding the ball. And it's the rejuvenation of the chinese nation at all costs and the preservation of power by ccp as the prime directive and all of these developments were as to underscore dennis's poi- not only related to hong kong. They were all signaled. They were all signal if there had been the political will or the desire to read the signals in every single mainland law not only the national security law counterterrorism law the cyber-security law and all the regulations for example the regulations regarding newspapers which clearly said no news can be posted and opinions were considered news.

"You can just see that a judge could be some merrily removed on the basis. That he or she has reached her judicial oath and interpretation of that old lands with the central people's complement of course an implemented through people like the chief secretary and you can just see that the judges are not stupid. Of course they can see the writing on the wall. So if i have an important piece of a case that has won a few of those are very sensitive political leaders in the opposition on trial and the people stadium has already pronounced the verdict. If you're a judge you know. Of course you can see the writing on the wall. You'd go decide for yourself how you're gonna ruin that case. The consequences could be dire if you arrive at the golden input wrong decision because some summary removal of someone in official position on grounds that he her speech oath of office is marrying and could be easily applied to judiciary and the judges know that. That's number one number two the key person who controls judiciary senior promotion and also see neha Judicial appointments is actually the chief secretary and this point is sometimes overlooked because if you look at let's go proceedings under the basic law senior judicial appointments. I'm talking about court of appeal upwards all have to be approved by less show and given the go today. There's no balance. There's no check and balances all pro-beijing views pro-beijing appointees number one number two. The person who actually moves the motion to confirm judge for senior position is actually the chief secretary. The chief secretary is responsible to put that person's name forward in the lesko. A meeting to say. Can you please approved person and endorse him. Ask the next chief justice and if the chief secretary things you're not a patriot. He have all the power to say. I'm not moving this person forward. Because i have questions about his patriotism. The chief secretary controls that decision making process by being in his role asked. Who was the person responsible for putting forward at again as judges. We all know that as as people who are familiar judiciary in hong kong. We we know that that that that process well. So you again to think about whether judges who understand that would be affected by such a system so i think systematically and you're looking at the institution as a whole. Can you still say hand on hot at the hong kong judiciary is independent. I was very disappointed with the uk supreme court when they came out to Continue to say they will continue to send judges in hong kong because they believe that the hong judiciary is still largely independent. I'm disappointed because the statement doesn't provide any reason. It doesn't explain why they still believe that and i would like to see some reasons but i have my serious doubts about that assertion so those are the free points that i wanna make and Happy to any questions on any of you have thank you jerry. Can you share well. That was a powerful statement is lots of issues. I've got a few comments myself. But i'm eager to hear from sharon Jeez originally from hong kong she became a distinguished graduate of nyu law school. She's a active civil libertarian. For over thirty years she's taught in china. Ah sharon is the executive director of human rights. Watch run of our most active organizations that covers this field. So sharon if you could give selected comments and then we'll have a discussion but we're really glad to see you am. I think you were the one who first introduced me. Dennis and then i decided to invite him years ago to speak the council. Thank you very much. Thank you so much jerry for that kind introduction and and dennis thank you for Those really detailed opening remarks and thank you for all of the work that you have done. And i know. We'll continue to do abroad I want to offer a few comments but from centering. The perspective of an international human rights perspective. But if i could just. I add a quick comment to dentists remarks in particular these social engineering project that's underway and i completely agree that the social engineering project on the mainland is absolutely spreading an interrelated with what is happening in hong kong There are two things about that. Social engineering project one is that it is supported by a completely interrelated. Set of law propaganda disinformation censorship and then the whole panoply of police security Apparatus the second wanted to say there's an insidiousness about the way in which these various social control and clean up and crackdowns are being formulated and they are being formulated under the cover of what i would say arguably reasonable legitimate rationales that is addiction to gaming by teenagers who really will go till they drop. Monopolistic practices by these gated walled gardens by the large tech industries. Dd controls eighty. Two percent of the industry and the other large ones are indeed trying to tie in monopolistic practices so that is a legitimate goal. Terrorism is legitimate real threat and the fact that students are so stressed out. Why this endless tutoring and the need to address. That problem are real threats. So my point theories is that it is an insidious packaging that labels all of these practices at under a rubric. Where you could say. Those are real problems. The problem is how to deal with these problems. In the way in which The leadership is dealing with them is not within a rights brain framework or a in compliance with its international obligations The one i would say is is not only insidious but i would say is not reasonable is trying to create what they call the correct standard of beauty now. that is why no more sec- men no more men wearing makeup and it extending to. What can you sing in karaoke clubs. So i think that you know those are objectives that i would say. I don't agree with from the start so Let me let me Regarding the law itself let me focus on. The law has been clearly widespread local and international expert concerns regarding the vague and overbroad provisions in the nfl and the lack of transparency and accountability of the entities. Which have been created and also very specific legal analysis and concerns regarding the misuse of terrorism as rationale the misuse of the sedition legislation in hong kong that you are referred to dennis and widespread fear before the passage of the national security law about the risks of arbitrary arrests and the complete undermining of rights protections and the rule of law and therefore prior to the passage of the national security law..

So i say just make the point that That this kind of social engineering in hong kong similar in type. I think is is in the same bane as the social not is happening in china right now and you expect to see more. And i think the best way to protect what's going to happen to hong kong. These days is look at mainland china. Look at mainland china. What they're doing there. You can bet that the same kinda policy language. Same kind of You know a threats will be made by the hong kong government and the hong kong. Police you know you look at the film. Industry in hong kong film industry is now basically been told. The law is not being changed. A film could be censored on grounds of national security by the chief secretary. Now the chief secretary or is former secretary full security. And i would say he is. The most powerful person in hong government structure Moreso than chief excecutive op. Because he is in charge off determining who is a patriot and who's not a patriot which comes to the last part of what i wanna talk about is very quickly about judicial independence. A lot of people asking me. Is there still judicial independence in hong kong. Might answer is not look judicial independence. You cannot just look at superficial things like oh you know whether the judges was someone will call the judge on sunday night to say that case on monday morning. I expect you to the course. We know those kind of things won't happen doesn't happen in in such a to fashion when you look at tradition depend you need to look at the institution news. Look at the whole system a holistic. And i'll just say this. That judges have been told the chief justice when he visited beijing last month. A couple of months ago have been told that he is expected to implement the patriots. Patriots administering hong kong principle. And what we what. What we understand is of course. Patriotism is fine by by the central government. And if they you know they they stay disqualifying me on the same basis stock i. I'm basically not a patriot. I committed acts endangered national security. And that doesn't just a members in applies to any member of governmental service or civil service or indeed judiciary all everyone has to take oath e stays including judges.

I think that we reach a point where you know. Most people are just you know. Even the activists say they'd be understand now that the battle cannot be in hong kong.

Stand up. the. I've seen two million people in the streets and that will stay and maybe one day who one day there will be another opportunity but right now it's it's quite dire. Some observers fear. hong kong is merely an appetizer. That beijing has its sights. Set on reclaiming another territory but this one risks igniting a world war issuing a stern warning to beijing. Us secretary of state entering lincoln said that united states is concerned about china's aggressive action against taiwan chinese government as detailed strategy to reclaim taiwan and to overtake the united states as the world's dominant power by the year twenty forty nine but some experts warn the situation may come to a head much sooner in terms of their military power to affect an invasion of taiwan. I think the chinese communist party has fat many times over taiwan beliefs. Beijing is preparing for war.
