The most successful fake news campaign – demonizing China and the Chinese Civilisation

Fake news as a weapon of war to confuse, mislead, attack and demoralise the enemies is nothing new. It is a consistent campaign conducted over time, years, decades, even centuries, to destroy the enemy without anyone knowing what was going on. In the words of Michael Raska, from S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies ...fake news is a weapon used for invasion by other countries. “A campaign of disinformation, where falsehoods are spread subtly and gradually, could be the first step in an attack on Singapore. This is especially so for foreign actors who want to attack Singapore, but cannot do so using military means.”

The most successful fake news campaign was conducted by the West and western media to demonise China and the Chinese Civilisation over the last few centuries. If you remove the word ‘Singapore’ in the above quote and insert ‘China’, it is exactly what was happening in the past till today and going on everyday even in articles from western mischievous writers in our local papers.

China was a victim of invasion, colonialism and imperialism until the country was bankrupted, the people humiliated and demoralised and their confidence as a civilisation totally destroyed. But the West and western media glorified their wars and invasion of China and the rest of the world as if Imperialism and Colonialism were the good things, the invaders and murderers and plunderers were the heroes, the good guys, knighted as Sir this and Sir that by their kings and queens. And the real victims, the Africans, the Asians, the Indians and the Chinese were the bad guys.

The success of this fake news campaign is so damaging till today that many Asian leaders are still fearing China as a war monger waiting to conquer and invade their countries when the real invaders were the Western countries and Japan. And to many people of Chinese origins in SE Asia, they even despised China and the Chinese Civilisation, ashamed to be Chinese, even hating the Chinese without knowing why but for the reasons planted into their unthinking mind by the western media.

And when the West ridiculed China, passed rude remarks about Chinese, they would giggle and agree, thinking that they were not Chinese and had nothing to do with being Chinese though they have yellow skin and Chinese parentage. Many would join in the attack and pass humiliating remarks about Chinese, not admitting that they were Chinese. Some may even want to change the colour of their skin, bleach them to be whites.

The local media did not help, in fact continue to publish articles of western origins that were anti China and the Chinese civilisation regularly as if they were truths and not fake news. The common angle that these western articles took would be China may be building roads and infrastructures for the developing countries, but China did not do it for humanitarian grounds but eyeing their natural resources. What is wrong with exchanging their work in infrastructure development with raw materials when these countries could not pay with currencies? Do they expect China to build all the infrastructures for free? Compares with the West selling arms and goods to these countries, for free, for humanitarian reasons? The colonisation of these countries was for humanitarian reasons, to civilise these countries, by robbing them of their land and natural resources without paying a single cent?

The media has been well exploited by the West for centuries to gold plate their evils deeds, their plunderings and killings of Asians and Africans while at the same time demonising other Asian and African countries. There was no condemnation of the mass murders and genocides conducted by the white Europeans in the past and in recent years. The native Americans, the African native slaves, the mass killings in North Korea, Japan, Vietnam, in Iraq, Libya, Syria, in Afghanistan, in many north African states, in Latin America, in the Philippines.

Practically all western media are in the job of passing fake news to glorify the West, the European Empires, the American evil Empire, their killings by the hundreds of thousands in the Middle East and Africa with impunity while accusing the Asian leaders of crimes against humanity. Duterte is a key victim, Assad, Kim Jong Un, now Aung San Suu Kyi, soon would be Najib. Putin and Xi are on the wanted hate list.

Who are the real producers of fake news? Main media or social media? The main role of mysingaporenews is to question and cast doubts on what the main media is pushing as the truth. Mysingaporenews will question what it thinks is fake news, half truths or misinformation to let the readers find their own truths.

Who is conducting a campaign of misinformation and falsehood, reputable western media? All the big names in the media industry are printing real news, not misinformation with private and hidden agenda?

What a joke!

PS. Anyone who has Chinese blood in him or her is a victim of this smear campaign originated from the West, even if he/she thinks he/she is a banana.

International laws were written by Western powers at a time when China and many other countries were too weak to stand up for their interests and rights.

During the First Opium War that ended in 1842, the British Navy had total control of the waters off the Chinese coast and could attack any Chinese port or city at will. For example, in August 1841, sailing from Hong Kong, it took only 53 days to move north and capture Xiamen, Zenghai, Ningbo and several other Chinese coastal cities. In contrast, the Chinese forces, relying on land defence, needed 40 days just to move troops and cannons from one province to the neighboring one.

On Aug 3, 1900, to protect foreigners in Beijing who felt threatened by rioters calling themselves Righteous Boxers, an International Alliance of Eight Imperialist Powers dispatched just 18,811 men to invade the Chinese capital. Armed with weapons far superior to what the Qing army could muster, they took just 10 days to trounce more than 150,000 Qing defenders and several hundred thousands of rioters, and conquer Beijing.

On Oct 5, 1931, when Chinese residents in Shanghai started a boycott of Japanese goods over Japan's repeated incursions into China, Tokyo sent gunboats up the Yangtze as a show of force.

Allowing foreign naval patrols up the Yangtze was one of the humiliating concessions forced on China after the First Opium War. The Americans formed a Yangtze Patrol to do just that, often cruising more than 2,100km upstream.

Today China has recovered from it inglorious days of weakness. No country would ever think it could sail its warships into Chinese rivers without being sunk. Even aircraft carriers would be sunk when hostility breaks out and have to keep at a safe distance from Chinese shores, ie more than 5000km away.

Singapore's Loong persistently call upon Beijing to observe international laws in the South China Sea - laws written by Western powers.

China has long-claimed sovereignty over Xisha (Paracel), and Nansha (Spratly) islands in the South China Sea.

At the 1951 Treaty of San Francisco, China was not even invited to the deliberations led by the US and Britain under the auspices of the United Nations (controlled by Western powers) to formalize the return of what Japan plundered from the countries they conquered during the Pacific War.

Then, the British and the Americans shut the door on Communist China because of the looming Cold War.

Fake news as a warfare tool is not new. Rumor was used to describe it. How to spread rumor? One must create it. One must motive to do such story. Therefore, fake news creator has motive, may be gains. To make people believe it, the news must disguise under someone or some institution which is considered trustworthy. The disguise is important to spread rumor.

So to demonize china is a huge project. In the west, including HK english daily, such demonizing has been a built-in. One has to see who wrote that article before spending all time to read. Many readers are smart enough to do this. If the writer is ang mor, scanning through the first para, to know what the writer wanna says, can skip to the next article.

But the current western media is targeting at Putin s Russia, not so much on China which Trump keeps as stool. When Trump needs to win insult with Kim, he would call China up. So the world would thought Kim dare not to go further to insult back. China was fond of such game until Kim went direct to Trump. Now Trump use trade tariff to teach China to behave "fairly".

Go to twitter like ghouta, readers will see fake news to demonize each sides. Some news are real some are fakes and keep repeating. That is war rumors at similar to that eastern europe said about sinkieland s risk.

A warning is: high level officials are also fake news spreaders. One CIA deputy director was sacked. He missed his retirement and full pension by 2 days. He was found to know Hillary s deleted emails. His wife received $700k from Hillary s foundations. He knew the emails and he did not let his boss know it by keeping the news for one month. That was considered unprofessional. High official telling lies is hard to prove to spread fake news because such official can sue someone or catch him to limkopi. In CIA, fake news can be spread as high as director level. Therefore, if readers believe what new ko times news, dnn news, or washing tanks times, they must be newbies in reading media.

To sum up, in modern world, reading official media or social media, all readers need to adjust their relaxing attitude towards what officials said. Some may be faking news to achieve their motives. If dont believe, go look at some officials figures, why locals include PR ie foreigners? In unemployment figures, no one can decipher foreigners are more employable than citizen ns men. U believe the numbers are for citizens ns men s own consumption? So motive is different from national citizens objective to acquire the news. Tio bor ah hiar?

Please lah uncle, you have to have thicker skin than that lah.

The worst racism I kena in all my years in Oz has been from Aboriginals..."abos", "boongs" or "coons" or as they are affectionately known. They will beg from you, and if you refuse them, they will abuse you racially. "Ching Chong" and slanty-eyes gestures plus mimicry of kung fu seems to be favourite ways of ridicule toward Asians.

I even had one boong accuse me of being a "baby killer" and "dog eater". I tak boleh tahan....I just burst out laughing ๐Ÿคฃ. He was so pissed off, he called me a "chink cunt" and fucked off. ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿฝ

The racism from whites has been minimal. They are usually older folks brainwashed during the time Aust had its White Australia Policy.

Asians have to learn how to dispose of this "face saving" bullshit...or at least dial it back a bit. If they don't, they will always be "offended" when their culture is attacked.

To be truthful to oneself is liberating. One has to accept that Asian cultures (plural) are not perfect...they do have tribal elements about them, afterall, it's only human to have a "mistrust" of people outside your tribe.

So please lah, the best way to combat such shit is to ignore it. The second way is to dispel the misinformation point by point. And the entertaining way is to make huge fucking jokes about the bullshit they right.

The worst thing you can do is become "offended" and look at yourself as a "victim of racism".

Don't play the victim. Don't ever give up your personal power...the power to choose a better response to people who are deliberately trying to hurt you. ๐Ÿค–

Western racism is institutionalised and include killings and slavery. Heard of the Chinese Exclusion Act in the US? Heard of the Act that barred Chinese from all professions except laundryman and cooks? I don't even want to talk about black slavery. Heard of no dogs and Chinese allowed?

You little experience with a few stupid abos so painful meh?

Heard about apartheid? Heard about white immigration policies in Oz? Oh for a kid, these were before you grow up, a time you can't remember.

U are very clear in simple language. Foreigners are PR. If they are not PR, they cannot work here.

If they work here, they get work pass employment pass s pass, some will turn themselves to PR.

Citizens should read language in this way: Foreigners = PR.

The headlines was saying: more foreigners are converted to singapore workforce last year.
The numbers of citizens could be so small that the news papers feel shy to mention.

Uncle, please lah...if some asshole stranger from another ethnic group called you a chinky-chonk, you would consider that a racist comment.

To be clear, I have exceptionally thick skin...so hostile words from matsalehs or niggers don't really rock my sampan, which tends to float on very calm seas, as its "default" setting ๐Ÿ˜.

I know who I am, and I'm very comfortable in my own skin...which is why I'll go up to any attractive chick and "buka" a conversation. Most of the time, they flip me off...I certainly don't present like a male model billionaire, but occasionally I get lucky cos' she's willingly to accept what she sees and isn't on a "gold-digger" trip. Plus I can make (most) chicks laugh. Handling rejection or hostility to me is just like scratching a small annoying itch---no big deal.

Western racism WAS (past tense) "institutionalised" if you draw the line back through history. Manifest destiny (rooted in Christianity) was prevalent. However, western culture has changed. It was white motherfuckers who scripted the "Universal Bill of Human Rights". White cuntries were the first to embrace "multiculturalism" and allow darkies and Orientals to settle their lands. White Guilt is still very much alive today, so all the "conquered races" like the abos in Australia, the niggers and injuns in America...to quote just 2 examples...get all sorts of "goodies" from their former oppressors.

No doubt there are still remnants of "white supremacy" around....you are never going to totally remove every trace of "tribalism" from any culture...including the cultures of the Asians, Africans, native folks from every now-modern cuntry. whitey's were so myopic they even called many of these cultures "indian"...what the fucking fuck fuck? ๐Ÿคฃ

Native Americans: Indians. Native Canadians: Indians. South American natives: Indians. Caribbean natives: Indians. Fucking sub-continent proud Indians can therefore boast to the world Ah dei...you see dah, the whole world is Indian. Of course the India Indians who are English educated consider themselves "upper class"...but that is a discussion for another day. Caste bigotry is no different from racism, and there is still plenty of caste-bullshit in India.

As there is in China. The inhabitants of a certain island, for example, are the butt of "incest jokes" amongst the Chinese. Hokkien peple are considered "vulgar", Teochew women are alluring, Cantonese guys are show-offs, Hong Kong and Taiwan Chinese don't really like those mainland folks...especially govt officials from Beijing.

And then the majority-Chinese govt of Singapore decides to "outlaw" all dialects...as if they are the emperor of China...and force even 80+ year olds to speak Mandarin, and deny these folks TV content in their dialects.

So bigotry and racism abound in a world divided by tribes. Thankfully, due to commerce, trade, cheap communications and travel, and a global currency system...many cultural barriers are coming down...but to hope for 100% removal of our human species tribal nature, that is impossible.

So back to my original point: Don't be so sensitive lah...even if you think racism is institutionalised by King Ang Moh of Tua Kee. If you are going to want to get ahead and win in the world, having thick skin is your FRIEND, as is being able to moderate your initial "negative" responses to hostility.

Save your sensitivity for your loved ones, not for strangers with an agenda. ๐Ÿ˜

Little Bo-Peep

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, and they'll come home,
Bringing their tails behind them.

Little Bo-Peep fell fast asleep,
And dreamt she heard them bleating;
But when she awoke, she found it a joke,
For they were still all fleeting.

Then up she took her little crook,
Determined for to find them;
She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed,
For they'd left their tails behind them.

It happened one day, as Bo-Peep did stray
Into a meadow hard by,
There she espied their tails, side by side,
All hung on a tree to dry.

She heaved a sigh and wiped her eye,
And over the hillocks she raced;
And tried what she could, as a shepherdess should,
That each tail be properly placed.

Speaking of tribes, another example just occured:

In our very own Singapore, we have many tribes...but none bigger than the the 2 tribes of people who "tolerate" or "like" the PAP, and the ones who absolutely reject the PAP outright. We don't really have much "racial tension" in our wonderful Island Paradise. The biggest fight is between the PAP and its "fans" and the rest of the struggling people.

Sheeple vs Real People.๐Ÿ˜› And this fight is hostile and tribal as they come. The "class warfare" is between the Elite (chau cheng hu) and the fuck-spider-hung-cheng-pai "losers".

No need to wait for a racial fight to break out. For every way you can divide humans into groups you will find infinite reasons groups to mistrust each other, initiate hostilities (which can last for years or generations) and have a jolly-good time bashing each other up until one is annihilated . This is real on-going entertainment created by none other the usual culprit and "star" of every show: Human Nature ๐Ÿคช

13 August, 2017,

Human Rights First today strongly condemns the hateful gathering of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, and urges President Trump to speak out clearly and forcefully against the dangerous extremist ideology of racism and discrimination perpetuated by members of the so-called "alt-right." The organization mourns with the families of the slain counter-protestor and Virginia State Troopers, and all those who were injured as they peacefully stood up against bigotry and hatred.

"Under the U.S. Constitution, all members of our society have the right to freedom of speech, but what the world witnessed this weekend should be called by its true name: evil," said Human Rights First's Rob Berschinski.

"The response of the President of the United States to this weekend’s events has been woefully inadequate. Donald Trump’s disinterest in condemning neo-Nazi and white supremacist ideology dishonors his office and the people of the United States. He should immediately, and unequivocally, condemn bigotry and hate not in the abstract, but in the way it is manifesting in America’s streets.

"President Trump needs to permanently distance himself from white supremacists who have repeatedly stated that they are acting in his name. In so doing, he should immediately fire those members of the White House staff linked to white nationalism and the so-called 'alt-right.' Members of Congress of both parties should demand as much from the president. To not do so is to embolden those that stand in opposition to our highest ideals, and invite additional violence."

White supremacists held rallies on Friday night and Saturday to protest the planned removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. The protestors waved Confederate flags, and chanted Nazi-era slogans and phrases including “You will not replace us” and “Jews will not replace us.” Peaceful counter-protestors were quickly met with violence from the mob, culminating in a car driving into a crowd killing one and injuring at least 30 more.

The Charlottesville mayor and many members of Congress quickly condemned the white nationalist protestors and their extremist ideology, recognizing that their violence and hate speech is the backbone of oppression.

"We applaud the many public statements from leaders across America’s political spectrum who have rejected in the strongest terms the vile ideology on display in Virginia. We stand with members of the Charlottesville community who peacefully gathered to reject the purveyors of hate. And we mourn for those killed and injured in what should only be described as an act of domestic terrorism," added Berschinski.

Donald John Trump - The First White President

It is often said that Trump has no real ideology, which is not true—his ideology is white supremacy, in all its truculent and sanctimonious power. Trump inaugurated his campaign by casting himself as the defender of white maidenhood against Mexican “rapists,” only to be later alleged by multiple accusers, and by his own proud words, to be a sexual violator himself. White supremacy has always had a perverse sexual tint. Trump’s rise was shepherded by Steve Bannon, a man who mocks his white male critics as “cucks.” The word, derived from cuckold, is specifically meant to debase by fear and fantasy—the target is so weak that he would submit to the humiliation of having his white wife lie with black men. That the slur cuck casts white men as victims aligns with the dicta of whiteness, which seek to alchemize one’s profligate sins into virtue. So it was with Virginia slaveholders claiming that Britain sought to make slaves of them. So it was with marauding Klansmen organized against alleged rapes and other outrages. So it was with a candidate who called for a foreign power to hack his opponent’s email and who now, as president, is claiming to be the victim of “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history.”

IT IS INSUFFICIENT TO STATE the obvious of Donald Trump: that he is a white man who would not be president were it not for this fact. With one immediate exception, Trump’s predecessors made their way to high office through the passive power of whiteness—that bloody heirloom which cannot ensure mastery of all events but can conjure a tailwind for most of them. Land theft and human plunder cleared the grounds for Trump’s forefathers and barred others from it. Once upon the field, these men became soldiers, statesmen, and scholars; held court in Paris; presided at Princeton; advanced into the Wilderness and then into the White House. Their individual triumphs made this exclusive party seem above America’s founding sins, and it was forgotten that the former was in fact bound to the latter, that all their victories had transpired on cleared grounds. No such elegant detachment can be attributed to Donald Trump—a president who, more than any other, has made the awful inheritance explicit.

His political career began in advocacy of birtherism, that modern recasting of the old American precept that black people are not fit to be citizens of the country they built. But long before birtherism, Trump had made his worldview clear. He fought to keep blacks out of his buildings, according to the U.S. government; called for the death penalty for the eventually exonerated Central Park Five; and railed against “lazy” black employees. “Black guys counting my money! I hate it,” Trump was once quoted as saying. “The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”

After his cabal of conspiracy theorists forced Barack Obama to present his birth certificate, Trump demanded the president’s college grades (offering $5 million in exchange for them), insisting that Obama was not intelligent enough to have gone to an Ivy League school, and that his acclaimed memoir, Dreams From My Father, had been ghostwritten by a white man, Bill Ayers.

The foundation of Donald Trump’s presidency is the negation of Barack Obama’s legacy.

China is standing tall !!Henry Kissinger said previously: whoever controls petroleum shall control the other countries; whoever controls food supplies shall control mankind; whoever controls the distribution of money shall rule the world. No one country can manage without petroleum, but not every country has petroleum resources. Realizing the amazing commercial opportunity stated above, US laid down ground rules for Saudi and other major petroleum exporting countries, that all petroleum trading must be done in USD. Therefore any country who intended to import petroleum must convert their currency to USD to complete the deal.

The petroleum exporting countries must receive the sale proceeds in USD, otherwise they might faced serious repercussions. All these implied that US derived certain benefits in all petroleum trading in the world then.But what were the bases for these? The bases rest on the American fighter bombers and canons, as any rationales or justifications were within the firing range of the canons.Under the autocratic power of US, who dared to oppose. The benefits derived from the practice of using USD was significant and all encompassing.
Therefore US would pulverized any one who dared to act differently.It could be recalled that when the defiant Saddam Hussein made known his intentions to trade petroleum based on Euro instead of USD, US Secretary of State Powell just waved a packet of washing powder at the United Nations (claiming it to be WMD), took actions to overthrow the dictator, and bombed Iraq to become a waste land. Saddam was hanged and the Americans just dusted their backsides to leave a democratic but bomb-shattered Iraq.   In that bullying era, US Seventh Fleet was the justice, whoever had greater fist power became the big brother.Aside from Iraq, even when staunch US allies ever considered of replacing USD in petroleum trading, harsh measures would rained upon them.

Thus when the highly revered German Chancellor Angela Merkel just said Euro could be more appropriate for petroleum trading, the Americans immediately acted to precipitate the Greek debt crises. These causes a big mess in European Union and almost resulted in the break-up. Merkel retreated in anguish and dared not raise such issue again. The Americans were apt to use such tactic ( the Chinese idiom equivalent of killing chicken to warn monkey) to evoke fear. Any one who disregard the base line would incur their wrath and punitive actions.

What none of the nation in the world would dare to offend the US, China did and succeeded. In 2014, the Russians made the first move to trade petroleum with China using Renminbi (RMB). That was astounding. Subsequently Iran and Iraq follow suit. Later Venezuela also discarded USD and traded their petroleum with China in RMB. With these major petroleum exporting nations trading in RMB, two-third of China's import of petroleum were secured in RMB, thus US started to lose its benefits had these trading been done in USD. In order to crack the monopoly of trading using USD, China took further actions.Any country which accepted RMB for the sale of petroleum would be permitted to swapped the RMB for gold in the Shanghai bullion market. This move enables RMB to become more internationalized. The US become more alarmed.

Now that petroleum, RMB, and gold are interchangeable, it means the confidence in RMB is linked to confidence in gold. This would hasten savings in RMB in the whole world.Upon China's move to permit interchangeability between RMB and gold, another nation which became alerted besides US was petroleum juggernaut Saudi Arabia. As the Chinese were keen to widen the acceptability of RMB for petroleum imports, its import from Saudi had reduced considerably. As the China market was a huge one, the Saudi could not hold its patience any longer and had of late begun initiatives -cont'd

to cooperate closer with China.Based on a number of signals, Saudi Arabia, close ally of US, will รข bend with the wind to accept RMB for petroleum export to China. One must note that Saudi is the big brother of petroleum export nations in Middle East. If Saudi were to accept RMB, more petroleum exporting nations in Middle East would join in and American dominance and use of USD would shrink in importance.It has to be noted that, if 20 years ago, any nation was to trade in RMB, it would be suicidal as the Americans would resort to 1000 ways to mangle it. But China today differed greatly from China of the past. 20 years of bitter endurance, China has grown from strength to strength.

The US today isn't the same as US of the past. 20 years of friction and wars had left a huge deficit inits coffer, and waned off its warring spirit.These countries which chose to use RMB to trade, be it the newly awakened Russia, US arch rivals Iran, Venezuela or the battered Iraq, were all ever ready to stand up to say no to US. Moreover what added to their resolve was that they are cooperating with China which has been well recognized as one country which could stand tall vis-a-vis the US.On the other hand, the US had fought in many wars over the years, depleting it s reserves and piling up astronomical national debt. In view of shortage of fund there were incidences of government shutdown.

Under Trump's administration, there were measures to down-size US global operations to avert worsening of its economic health. Now that monopoly of USD in trading has been foiled and US were well exasperated. But any show of force with China by the downcast war-monger is not the best option.That was the reason that the US had in recent years laid shackles on China, such as threatening China in South China seas. That was one way for the US to let go its choked up air. The past dominance and overriding superiority is a thing of the past.

That's why one US analyst sighed: 20 years ago, US let China off the hook, now China has turned the table. But who would know, China's growing power today was attained through how much of sweat, blood and tears!In the past, US bombed the Chinese embassy (1999 Belgrade), the Chinese kept their cool.In the past, US navy air-craft collided with Chinese fighter jet (2001, Hainan) China exercised patience.In 1996 Taiwan Straits crisis, US shut down GPS, immobilizing two Chinese air-craft carriers in the Taiwan Straits, China still held its patience.As of now, situations in South China Sea have become clearer.

Vietnam's claim was repulsed and the anti-Chinese ex-president in Philippines was force to resign, now awaiting trial.The arbitrators appointed by the US to manage the South China Sea disputes were unsuccessful. The Japanese also fumbled in their claims. Now the routine patrol of Diaoyu Islands is done by the Chinese. In addition, Chinese naval frigates and jets are often seen to traverse between the Japanese islands, drawing repeated protests from the Japanese.

The Chinese officials said defiantly: they will get use to the trespassing in due course!! And regarding the islet which the Indonesians had landed, the Chinese scientists announced they discovered an endangered plant in the vicinity and cordoned off an area more than 10 km radius as protected land. When the netizens read the news, they said that plant was there to uphold China's national honour. Now, the Chinese telescope called Tianyan is the world's most advanced radio telescope.

For mankind to hear the voices of the universe, the world got to depend upon China.Now Huawei smartphone has begun to rise in popularity, and Samsung status has dropped and has tendency to explode. Plane passengers with certain series of Samsung smartphones were even not allowed to board. cont'd

Apple launch receive declining response.Now, China has fully activated OROB (One Road One Belt), thus widened its global markets without interference by the US. The spectacular Chang-an cargo train could haul about 200 coaches and reduced the time for cargo transport from China to Europe. Wherever it passed the crowds were greatly amazed and referred it as the Chinese great dragon.Now online payment has become widespread so much so that roadside hawkers selling roasted potatoes could also accept online payment. Numerous westerners who lived in China felt greatly inconvenient when they returned to their home countries. They expressed that China is the cashless society and their home countries have lagged behind. Going home appears to get into another era.

Now China's super fighter jet Chengdu J20 has been commissioned. To counter the US Stealth fighter jets, China has the Red flag series-9 Aerial Defence Missiles. Now US fighter jets would not dare to trespass China's air space.Now the Chinese nuclear submarines equipped with special high-tech have been fully upgraded. China's very own aircraft carriers were successively commissioned.

Now China has also developed counter arsenals to thwart the American aircraft carriers. Those are Dong Feng 21D anti-ship ballistic missiles. These missiles could easily knock out the US aircraft carriers. When this news was announced, the US aircraft carriers line of defense retreated 400 Km.Today, China has its own new early warning aircrafts, a new type of strategic bombers, and Xian Y-20 large transport aircrafts.

Now China's military helicopters and heavy-duty helicopters are constantly being commissioned. These are Z-10, Z-19, Z-20 and others, dazzling to the sight.This is the speed of China! This is China's national defense. Over the last hundred years, China experienced humiliation and suffering through the Opium War, the Eight-Power Allied Forces and the Anti-Japanese War.In the last hundred years, the Chinese took great pains and made relentless efforts to make nuclear bombs, build planes, build tanks and whatever the enemies have. China also made new gadgets that the enemies didn't have.

Finally, China spent 60 years to catch up with what the West achieved over the past 200 years! China had used the blood, sweat and tears of numerous ancestors in exchange for today's success! When China suddenly raised its heavenly sword to put a stop to USA dollar hegemony, the United States suddenly found that the rapid rise of China is now beyond its control!, They have been unable to stop China's vigorous pace.Now as China is marching doggedly forward despite torrents of resistance, achieving one breakthrough after another, it is hope that every Chinese will strive hard to keep the glorious flame of the Chinese race ever brighter.

While it is said that China achieved miracles, one may just as well say China is a miracle.Magnificent and Towering !!

Fake paper-generals are only good in fake military map-planning exercises, instead of accomplishing good commercial results.

Fake parliamentary select committee is only good in spending money and wasting time in tackling hairy-fairy fake news, instead of tackling the real bread-and-butter issues the people are facing daily.

Fake parliament is only good for feining offended and playing victims to demand for apologies, instead of focusing upon real debates on the need to increase GST to increase the commoners' hardship and suffering.

Fake good leadership is good only in lying and deceiving the voters, instead of showing the direction where the country is heading and leading the masses to a better life.

Fake generals have absolutely no weight, yet arrogance turned them into stupid generals, who keep punching above their weightless weight against China, totally disregarded that Sinkieland's population comprises 70% Chinese descendents.

American author John Perkins has exposed how the US cheats countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars in the era of globalisation. US international enterprises convince poor oountries to accept huge development loans and ensure the projects are contracted to US companies. Once a poor country is engulfed in enormous debts that cannot be paid back, the US administration demands more favours such as "access to natural resources, military cooperation and political support" to give it more time or development loans to repay the debt. There is a lot of intrigue, greed and corruption linking the US Administration and US corporations on how to steal from unsuspecting African and other poor countries.

China's plan to teach the arrogant traitors of the Chinese Race a good and proper lesson has been put into gear. Once started, there is no stopping half-way, unless something drastic happens or someone realise their folly and willing to denounce their treacherous words and deeds.

The plan is a three-prong counter-offensive:

1. Diplomatic Front.
2. Economic Front.
3. Financial Front.

Within each front, there are several sub-plots and phases.

What are they? Smart generals would easily know but stupidity-cannot-cure generals will never know even for the next 50 years.

Economist Pieter Bottelier says the China BRI is a major vision of how China can collaborate with its neighbours, Europe and Africa, but the significance of the initiative has been underrated in the US and the West in general.

Fake or Not Fake News:

1. One party government is good for Singapore.

2. Only PAP can govern Singapore.

3. PAP Ministers are extraordinary leaders who deserve extraordinary pay.

4. There is no conflict of interests with the Prime Minister's wife as CEO or Executive Director of Temasek Holdings.

5. There is no conflict of interests when the Prime Minister is also Chairman of GIC.

6. There is no conflict of interests when the Prime Minister is also Chairman for the People's Association.

7. There is no conflict of interests when the Prime Minister's personal lawyer is appointed Attorney General to prosecute the Prime Minister's own nephew.

8. When accused of abuse of power, parliament can be used to clear one's name without going to court to sue for damages and remedy, if accusers are one's own siblings.

9. Using political office, instead of legal proceedings, to over-rule a person's last will is alright if that person's legacy can enhance one's or the party's political capital.

10. Nominated MPs are as good as Elected MPs though they have no voting rights in Parliament.

11. A walk-over president is as good as an elected president, after going through all the hassle to legally constitute an office of elected presidency.

12. An Indian-Muslim by birth and legally recorded in her Birth Certificate as well as her Identity Card, and other government records, can be changed to become a Malay-Muslim by a Selected Group of people at the last minute for the purpose of the Presidential Elections.

@ RB:

>> So after killing all your ancestors and robbing them of their wealth and land and now pretending to be guilt conscious, threw a few pieces of meat at their descendants, these descendants must feel grateful and thankful?

Allowing the coloured to their land or to their stolen land? So fucking generous. <<

"Stolen" is the wrong word lah. But it is politically correct word to use, so these butt-hurt fucks can claim as "victims" and keep whitey in a constant state of guilt. (yeah, as always, it's about the money)

These cultures were CONQUERED, many of them WIPED OUT by whitey with his god, bullets, exotic diseases (they brought germs natives had no immunity to) and engineers ready to build "infrastructure" in the lands they CONQUERED.

People generally don't like to use the word CONQUER, because it is hard to accept a fact of reality which is quite plainly one race with superior technology completely dominating and sometimes destroying a native race who had no idea of what was going to hit them, nor any way of effectively resisting such devastation.

Our human history was very violent. Some "tribes" were luckier than others. In the thousands of years of fighting, civilizations rose to dominance and then collapsed. Peoples were conquered by other peoples with superior strength.

Whitey has now changed role from CONQUEROR to BENEFACTOR. Most of the foreign aid doled out now is from "white" western cuntries.

White guilt? Heck yeah...join the queue, wait your turn, then ketok the matsaleh for maximun money.

Throw in a free booze and tight Asian young pussy (aka cheebye), and you can manipulate this chau ang moh to become your slave. ๐Ÿ˜. Reverse slavery. Reverse racism. ๐Ÿคก

Make that white boy your NIGGER!

I don't need to. You certainly do, so you can pick up on my errors and inform me in your unique style .๐Ÿคช

You go do the work ok? Hurry along now...

I'm just here to have fun. ๐Ÿค“

Thus it behooves me to refresh all your memories:

1. I write for my own purely selfish entertainment.

2. I don't fact check anything. I don't need to. Some "smart arse" will always correct me, because "smart arses" always need to be correct, and prove to the whole internet that they are the smartest. ๐Ÿค–

3. I use a lot of "salty" language.

4. I say a lot of very un-PC things

5. I refer to mothers' chow cheebyes at every opportunity I get. (I guess it's just one of my "tells" ☚ Call it my "signature dish", like you would at a classy restaurant ๐Ÿ˜‹...yum yum...delicious! )
