Related imageFor the past 10 weeks, Hong Kong has been in the midst of ongoing protests that have taken to the streets and, most recently, the local airport.

The demonstrations were spurred by a controversial bill that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China where the courts are controlled by the Communist party. Since this time, however, the protests have grown into a larger, all-encompassing pro-democracy campaign.

Hong Kong is technically a special administrative region (since it was a colony of the British Empire until 1997) that has its own government and economic systems. As one of the world’s most expensive and densely populated cities, it is technically separate from mainland China; however, in recent years, Beijing has exerted more influence over Hong Kong.

Activists, for example, have been imprisoned and pro-democracy lawmakers have been barred from running or holding office. This has even trickled down to independent booksellers. These purveyors have disappeared from the city only to resurface on the mainland and face criminal charges.

The loss of a “high degree of autonomy” over time has fanned the flames of public anger and encouraged millions to demand change at the risk of personal safety. There have been aggressive tactics used by police against protestors including tear gas and rubber bullets. On July 21, gangs of men attacked activists and commuters at a transit station, and on August 12, a woman was hit in her eye (by a beanbag or rubber bullet) by police.

Pro-democracy protesters, however, have committed to keeping this movement going until their demands are met and the city’s leader, Carrie Lam, resigns.

Through it all, both professional and amateur photographers have been documenting this significant moment in history, capturing the passion and chaos of a nation at a potential turning point.

What started as a peaceful protest became a broad repudiation of Chinese control. Hundreds of thousands of people marched to protest the Hong Kong government on a holiday that marks Hong Kong’s return to China from British rule. Elsewhere in the city, protests took a destructive turn in the early morning and clashes with riot police wielding batons and pepper spray left protesters injured. By the afternoon, one group of demonstrators had used a steel cart to break through the glass facade of Hong Kong’s legislature and worked for hours to move deeper into the building, destroying surveillance cameras and spray-painting messages like "Release the Righteous” over the walls. @lamyikfei shot these photos.

The people of Hong Kong have the power to dream, to rule, to wrestle the world from fools. And the right for freedom and liberty! 

Strength to the protesters to fight the good fight.

Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein has died by suicide in his Manhattan jail early Saturday morning, three law enforcement officials told ABC News.

He was being held without bail at the Metropolitan Correctional Center awaiting trial on charges of conspiracy and sex trafficking. He pleaded not guilty to the charges, and a judge said he wouldn’t face trial before June 2020.

He’s accused of arranging to have sex with girls as young as age 14 in the early 2000s at Epstein’s residences in Manhattan and Florida. The 66-year-old was also hospitalized in July after he was found unresponsive in what appeared to be a possible suicide attempt.

Jeffrey Epstein, the man who knew the secrets that could have ruined some of the richest and most powerful men in the world committed suicide in jail and was definitely NOT murdered. Ha! 

How was he not on a 24 hour watch?

His death is too convenient to a lot of powerful people.

P.S. Trump was intimately linked to Epstein’s sex ring.

I’m truly trying my best to blog fun, or sexual stuff, which is the essence of my blog, however, in the days we live the internet is saturated with political news that always come from the United States because insanity has become the synonym of America.

In the latest WTF a Fox News guest (because of course!) blames shootings on lack of masculinity… 

Image result for Tim Kennedy fox masculinity“People are saying there’s a toxic masculinity problem, when in fact there’s not enough masculinity. What we’re doing to boys right now is we are stunting them. We are hard-wired to do incredible things, to be protectors. Everybody is made different but men have to be men. And boys have to be boys. When you give them ADHD medications, when you tell them they can’t go climb a tree, that they can’t be busy in a classroom, these are the results. You have to let boys be boys.

“That’s a great thing. That got us to the moon. That defeated the communists. That stopped the fascists and thereal Nazis in Normandy. Those weren’t little boys and girls that were storming beaches, those were men. Real men. I loved an era where if you called a president a racist, a bigot, a coward, you would be at the end of a duel.” – Former UFC fighter and Army sniper Tim Kennedy, this morning on Fox & Friends.

Oh, BOY! He walked out of the house having combined that shirt with that tie, and talks about “lack of masculinity?”.

Seriously, WTF mass murder has anything to do with “masculinity?!” Blame everything under the sun, except for THE GUNS!!!

Also in the new another psycho who fractured a boy’s skull over “disrespecting” the national anthem by wearing a cap…. DA FUCK?!

Salon reports:

The attorney for a 39-year-old man charged with assaulting a child who didn’t take his hat off for the national anthem says his client, compromised by a traumatic brain injury, believes he was acting on an order from President Donald Trump.

Superior resident Curt Brockway was charged Monday with felony assault on a minor. His defense attorney, Lance Jasper, told the Missoulian Wednesday the president’s “rhetoric” contributed to the U.S. Army veteran’s disposition when he choke-slammed a 13-year-old, fracturing his skull, at the Mineral County fairgrounds on Aug. 3.

“His commander in chief is telling people that if they kneel, they should be fired, or if they burn a flag, they should be punished,” Jasper said. “He certainly didn’t understand it was a crime.”

Okay…“He certainly didn’t understand it was a crime.” 

Then he is a danger to the community and should die in jail!!!

I don’t know what the hell is happening over there, but people is really fucked up and scary. Trump is a cancer that is slowly killing the common sense of that society.

At least 18 people have been killed in a shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. The 21-year-old gunman is in custody, according to police. He has been identified as Patrick Crusius.

The El Paso Times reports: ‘A Facebook account apparently belonging to the suspect appeared to have been deleted Saturday afternoon. The account shows a young man in wire-frame glasses, with a pained expression in his profile photo. The account showed three friends, including a possible twin sister. A Twitter account in the suspect’s name included several tweets supporting President Donald Trump, although the account has been inactive for the past two years.  A January 2017 tweet said, “#BuildTheWall is the best way that @POTUS has worked to secure our country so far!” 

Is anybody surprised at this point of another mass murder in America?

It’s not even a question of Trump (even if he’s motivating the deranged mentality behind white nationalism) it’s a question of the INSANE idea that more guns mean more security.

Their ABSURD second amendment should be trashed!

It’s doing nothing but producing TERRORISTS, encouraging psychos, and normalising the killing of another human being.

America… Not so great.

Tokyo 2020 Olympic Medals

Back in April 2017, the Japanese Olympic Committee began collecting discarded electronics with the aim to make all of the Tokyo 2020 gold, silver, and bronze medals from metal waste.

Having gathered over 47,000 tons of tech, including more than 5 million cell phones, the committee has recently revealed the design for the 100% sustainable medals.

Selected from over 400 competition entries, the winning Olympic medal design was created by Japanese design director Junichi Kawanishi. The concept is based on the idea of polishing rough stones until they shine.

Does anyone realise how ingenious this is?

Well done Japan!

So, until then…

YOU HAVE A FUCKING CRIMINAL RUNNING YOUR GOVERNMENT.

ThumbnailOn Tuesday, Pelosi, either inadvertently or purposefully (more like it ’cause this lady is pretty smart) exposed one of the dumber and more pernicious rules of decorum in the American House of Representatives.

Pelosi gave a floor speech about Donald Trump’s infamous, racist comments about freshman Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, before the House was set to vote on a resolution condemning Trump’s remarks.

Towards the end of the speech, Pelosi referred to Trump’s comments as “disgraceful and disgusting,” adding, “and these comments are racist.”

As mind numbingly stupid as this is, it appears that you cannot call the president a racist on the House floor, even if that president has done something racist.

Welcome to the United States, where it’s somehow considered more taboo to publicly describe a racist as a racist than actually saying something racist. And nevermind a racist rapist!

Regardless, great speech for the occasion. The masses should like that whole Jesus thing… and that “take it up with the parliamentarian, bitches” exit was great.

Side effect of that whole “rules” battle: That speech will now be read & reread & repeated & examined for a long time, so it gets an amplification.

And in the process, if that dippy rule gets changed, then we will have taken another babystep forward in civilisation.
