Default #1 'Color Revolutions'

Hong Kong’s Umbrellas are ‘Made in USA’



The Washington neo-cons and their allies in the US State Department and Obama Administration are clearly furious with China, as they are with Russia’s Vladimir Putin. As both Russia and China in recent years have become more assertive about defining their national interests, and as both Eurasian powers draw into a closer cooperation on all strategic levels, Washington has decided to unleash havoc against Beijing, as it has unleashed the Ukraine dis-order against Russia and Russian links to the EU. The flurry of recent deals binding Beijing and Moscow more closely—the $400 billion gas pipeline, the BRICS infrastructure bank, trade in rubles and renminbi by-passing the US dollar—has triggered Washington’s response. It’s called the Hong Kong ‘Umbrella Revolution’ in the popular media.

In this era of industrial globalization and out-sourcing of US industry to cheap-labor countries, especially to China, it’s worth taking note of one thing the USA—or more precisely Washington DC and Langley, Virginia—are producing and exporting to China’s Hong Kong. Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China has been targeted for a color revolution, one that has been dubbed in the media the Umbrella Revolution for the umbrellas that protesters use to block police tear gas.

The “umbrellas” for Hong Kong’s ongoing Umbrella Revolution are made in Washington. Proof of that lies not only in the obscenely-rapid White House open support of Occupy Central just hours after it began, following the same model they used in Ukraine. The US State Department and NGOs it finances have been quietly preparing these protests for years. Consider just the tip of the Washington Hong Kong “democracy” project.

Same dirty old cast of characters…

With almost by-now-boring monotony, Washington has unleashed another of its infamous Color Revolutions. US Government-steered NGOs and US-trained operatives are running the entire Hong Kong “Occupy Central” protests, ostensibly in protest of the rules Beijing has announced for Hong Kong’s 2017 elections. The Occupy Central Hong Kong protest movement is being nominally led by a 17-year-old student, Joshua Wong, who resembles a Hong Kong version of Harry Potter, a kid who was only just born the year Britain reluctantly ended its 99-year colonial occupation, ceding the city-state back to the Peoples’ Republic. Wong is accompanied in Occupy Central by a University of Minnesota-educated hedge fund money man for the protests, Edward Chin; by a Yale University-educated sociologist, Chan Kin-man; by a Baptist minister who is a veteran of the CIAs 1989 Tiananmen Square destabilization, Chu Yiu-ming; and by a Hong Kong University law professor, Benny Tai Yiu-ting, or Benny Tai.

Behind these Hong Kong faces, the US State Department and its favorite NGO, the US Congress-financed National Endowment for Democracy (NED), via its daughter, the National Democratic Institute (NDI), is running the Occupy Central operation. Let’s look behind the nice façade of peaceful non-violent protest for democracy and we find a very undemocratic covert Washington agenda.

Start with Chu Yiu-ming, the Baptist minister chosen to head Occupy Central. The most reverend Chu Yiu-ming is a founder and sits on the executive committee of a Hong Kong NGO– Hong Kong Human Rights Monitor (HKHRM). HKHRM as they openly admit on their website, is mainly financed by the US State Department via its neo-conservative Color Revolution NGO called National Endowment for Democracy (NED).

They state their purpose: “HKHRM briefs the press, the United Nations, local and overseas governments and legislative bodies on Hong Kong human rights issues both orally and through written reports.” In their 2013 Annual Report, the NED reports giving Rev. Chu Yiu-ming’s HK Human Rights Monitor a grant of US$ 145,000. You can buy a boatload of umbrellas for that. Chu’s HKHRM also works with another NED-financed creation, the Alliance for Reform and Democracy in Asia (ARDA).

When Occupy Central top honchos decided to (undemocratically) name the very reverend Chu as leader of Occupy Central this past January, 2014, Chu said it was because “I have more connections with different activist groups, and experience in large-scale social campaigns.” He could have named NED as activist group and the CIA’s 1989 Tiananmen Square as a ‘large-scale social campaign,’ to be more specific. The Baptist preacher admitted that he was named de facto leader of Occupy Central by two other leading organizers of the civil disobedience movement, Benny Tai Yiu-ting and Dr Chan Kin-man, who wanted him “to take up” the role.

Benny Tai is also familiar with the US State Department. Tai, law professor at the University of Hong Kong and co-founder of Hong Kong Occupy Central, works with the Hong Kong University Centre for Comparative and Public Law which receives grants from the NED subsidiary, National Democratic Institute for projects like Design Democracy Hong Kong. The Centre Annual Report states, “With funding assistance from the National Democratic Institute, the Design Democracy Hong Kong website was built to promote a lawful and constructive bottom-up approach to constitutional and political reform in Hong Kong.” On its own website, NDI describes its years-long Hong Kong law project, the legal backdrop to the Occupy demands which essentially would open the door for a US-picked government in Hong Kong just as Victoria Nuland hand-picked a US-loyal coup regime in Ukraine in February 2014. The NDI boasts,

The Centre for Comparative and Public Law (CCPL) at the University of Hong Kong, with support from NDI, is working to amplify citizens’ voices in that consultation process by creating Design Democracy Hong Kong (www.designdemocracy.hk), a unique and neutral website that gives citizens a place to discuss the future of Hong Kong’s electoral system.

The Hong Kong wunderkind of the Color Revolution Washington destabilization, 17-year-old student, Joshua Wong, founded a Facebook site called Scholarism when he was 15 with support from Washington’s neo-conservative National Endowment for Democracy via its left branch, National Democratic Institute and NDI’s NDItech project. And another Occupy Central leading figure, Audrey Eu Yuet recently met with Vice President Joe Biden. Hmmmm.

Cardinal Zen and cardinal sin…

Less visible in the mainstream media but identified as one of the key organizers of Occupy Central is Hong Kong’s Catholic Church Cardinal Bishop Emeritus, Joseph Zen. Cardinal Zen according to the Hong Kong Morning Post, is playing a key role in the US-financed protests against Beijing’s authority. Cardinal Zen also happens to be the primary Vatican adviser on China policy. Is the first Jesuit Pope in history, Pope Francis, making a US-financed retry at the mission of Society of Jesus founder (and, incidentally, the Pope’s real namesake) Francis Xavier, to subvert and take over the Peoples’ Republic of China, using Hong Kong as the Achilles Heel?

Vice President Joe Biden, whose own hands are soaked with the blood of thousands of eastern Ukraine victims of the neo-nazi civil war; Cardinal Zen; Reverend Chu; Joshua Wong; Benny Tai and the neo-conservative NED and its NDI and a bevy of other State Department assets and NGO’s too numerous to name here, have ignited a full-blown Color Revolution, the Umbrella Revolution. The timing of the action, a full two years before the Hong Kong 2017 elections, suggests that some people in Washington and elsewhere in the west were getting jumpy.

The growing Eurasian economic space of China in conjunction with Putin’s Russia and their guiding role in creating a peaceful and very effective counter-pole to Washington’s New World (dis-)Order, acting through organizations such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and the BRICS, is the real target of their dis-order. That is really quite stupid of them, but then, they are fundamentally stupid people who despise intelligence.

Like the Maidan protests in Kiev, some well-placed snipers are monitoring the mood of the crowd, as well.

“Hong Kong Occupy Central’s” Dirty Money, Leaders engaged in Unethical “Shadow Funding”

By Tony Cartalucci
Global Research, November 07, 2014
New Eastern Outlook



A torrent of leaked documents and e-mails have exposed the already questionable “Occupy Central” leadership as engaged in unethical, opaque funding. Millions of Hong Kong dollars have been shifted around secretly without “Occupy Central” supporters’ knowledge, concealing the source of the funding and the true nature of “Occupy Central’s” agenda.

For weeks, Beijing, the local Hong Kong government, and analysts around the world have suggested that “Occupy Central” was far from the “spontaneous” “grassroots” movement it claimed to be and that special interests both within Hong Kong and beyond China’s shores were guiding the movement. Leaked e-mails and documents, now confirmed by “Occupy Central” leaders and supporters to be authentic, have proven many of these accusations to be true.

Dirty Money, Dirtier Leaders

The South China Morning Post (SCMP) has revealed these leaked documents and emails in an ongoing series of articles. This includes their article, “Apple Daily head Jimmy Lai donated millions to pan-democrats, leaked files show,” which states:

Quote:
Hundreds of records detailing millions of dollars in donations to pan-democrats by the Apple Daily’s founder have been leaked to the media, a move the camp slammed as a “smear campaign”.

According to the 900 leaked files, Jimmy Lai Chee-ying has donated more than HK$10 million to pan-democratic parties and politicians since last year. The donations included HK$5 million to the Democratic Party and HK$3 million to the Civic Party.

Other donations detailed in the files include amounts totalling HK$900,000 to the Hong Kong Civic Education Foundation and Hong Kong Democratic Development Network, both co-founded by Reverend Chu Yiu-ming, an organiser of the Occupy Central civil-disobedience movement.

Some media reports suggested the total donations since April 2012 could have been as much as HK$40 million.
Of course, “Occupy Central” co-organizer Martin Lee, is in fact a founding chairman of the Democratic Party, linking Jimmy Lai to yet other organizers of the unrest.


Image: Jimmy Lai (foreground, left) and Martin Lee (foreground, right) have both attempted to distance themselves from “Occupy Central’s” leadership – however, it is clear they are both organizers and leading participants in the unrest themselves. Not only that, it appears that Lai and Lee are both connected financially, with the former handing over large donations to the political party Lee himself helped found.

While some may be tempted to question the authenticity of the leaks, Jimmy Lai has already verified the claims. Another SCMP article titled, “Jimmy Lai Chee-ying says he ‘hasn’t given one cent’ to Occupy Central organisers,”claims:

Quote:
Lai has been the subject of earlier leaked documents showing he donated millions of dollars to the city’s pan-democrats. He has confirmed that he did so.
The same article would also report:

Quote:
Lai said that while he had donated large sums of money to politicians in the pro-democracy camp, he had not given a cent to the co-founders of Occupy Central. His newspaper, though, had given the movement discounts for advertisements.
“Democracy” For the Benefit of Whom, the People or the Party?

And while Lai claims he hasn’t given “one cent” to “Occupy Central’s” organizers, it is clear that the movement itself is not designed for “democracy” for democracy’s sake alone, but simply as a means of putting the pro-Western politicians Lai has admittedly given large donations to, into power.


Image: Benny Tai, the so-called leader of “Occupy Central,” is embroiled in
an expanding scandal involving millions of Hong Kong dollars, multiple
conflicts of interest, and growing scrutiny over ties to dubious special
interests both within Hong Kong, and beyond China’s shores.


Lai was also found to be providing vast sums of money for “Occupy Central’s” so-called “referendum” conducted earlier this year by the University of Hong Kong Public Opinion Programme (HKUPOP). It should be noted that “Occupy Central” leader Benny Tai is an employee of the University of Hong Kong and has been a chairman of the university’s Centre for Comparative and Public Law (CCPL), a confirmed recipient of US State Department funding via the US National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its National Democratic Institute (NDI) subsidiary.

SMCP would report in an article titled, “Media mogul Jimmy Lai ‘spent HK$3.5m on Occupy Central vote’, leaked emails show,” that:

Quote:
Media mogul Jimmy Lai Chee-ying spent millions helping Occupy Central to hold its unofficial referendum in June, leaked emails show.

Lai’s Next Media group also offered extensive advice – including propaganda material – to the Occupy Central organisers – whom Lai dismissed in private as “idealist scholars” who “couldn’t make the cut without help”.

The emails were leaked by the same person who sent documents detailing the Next Media chairman’s political donations to various pan-democrats two weeks ago. It is not clear how the documents were obtained.

One of the exchanges between Lai and his top aide Mark Simon shows that Lai spent some HK$3 million to HK$3.5 million to help the plebiscite. The email did not detail how the money was spent, only mentioning that the costs included “advertisements and billboards”.
Lai has clearly tangled himself in a growing web of his own lies. With the incremental nature of the leaks affording Lai time to make further denials only to be exposed as a liar with the next series of leaks, he is taking the credibility of “Occupy Central” down with him. And Lai isn’t the only individual involved with “Occupy Central’s” backtracking as the truth is wrung from the the movement’s dubious leadership.

“Occupy Central’s” head organizer Benny Tai himself, has now been implicated in moving funds around secretly. SCMP’s article, “Occupy leaders refuse to reveal who donated HK$1.3m that co-founder passed to HKU,” would report that:

Quote:
Occupy Central last night declined to reveal the source of HK$1.3 million in donations that movement co-founder Reverend Chu Yiu-ming passed on to fellow organiser Benny Tai Yiu-ting.

At Chu’s request, Tai gave all the money to the university where he works, to cover some of the expenses it incurred on Occupy’s “civil referendum” and other activities, the movement said.
While “Occupy Central” is portrayed as a people’s movement, or a students’ movement, it is clear it is a politicians’ movement merely dressed up as the latter. Revealed is a dubiously funded leadership trying to claw its way into greater power, all while abusing and exploiting the genuine concerns and good intentions of the many followers who’ve come out into the streets.

Hypocrisy and Semantics

Occupy Central’s refusal to reveal the source of their funding is beyond dubious and betrays the very nature of what the movement allegedly stands for. Corrupt, opaque cabals of elitists using people toward their own end while wallowing in vast sums of money sounds strikingly familiar – in fact – these are the very claims the “Occupy Central” movement have leveled against the government in Beijing. Yet clearly, “Occupy Central’s” own leadership differs very little beneath the cheap, peeling veneer of a progressive, democratic, movement.

The same SCMP article would also report:

Quote:
The emails said Professor Chow Shew-ping, HKU’s pro-vice-chancellor, was notified and met Tai on May 29 last year. A director of the university’s development and alumni affairs office said Tai told her about the donor’s identity in July and the “case [was] closed”, said another email.

According to other leaked emails, the third Occupy co-founder – Dr Chan Kin-man – had been in contact with the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), a US Congress-funded non-profit organisation that promotes democracy. Chan met a “Louisa” from the NED in January last year, while Tai met the vice-president of the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs in June last year. The latter non-profit organisation, created by the US government, promotes democracy worldwide.

Chan said Occupy had never received any donation from foreign countries.
Unfortunately for Chan, however, this simply isn’t true. Nearly every “Occupy Central” leader, including Benny Tai himself, belong to organizations or institutions that have received direct funding from NED and its subsidiaries. Unless Chan, like Jimmy Lai and Benny Tai, is attempting to use semantics to dishonestly disclaim foreign funding, such a statement is merely yet another lie from yet another now discredited “Occupy Central” leader.

It is likely that further revelations will be made public. Those taking to the streets, following this dubious collection of liars and frauds, must ask themselves what exactly they are protesting when those leading them appear no different than those they are allegedly protesting against. And while revelations that “Occupy Central’s” leadership are liars and frauds do not in any way justify such behavior within Hong Kong’s current government or in Beijing, it should give “Occupy Central” supporters pause for thought regarding their tactics, strategy, cause, and objectives.

To improve the life of ordinary people, ordinary people must not only formulate solutions themselves, they must be the ones who carry them out. The notion that simply nominating someone else to do it on the public’s behalf leads to the very hypocrisy now on display amid “Occupy Central’s” growing leadership crisis. Instead of blocking up one’s own city streets, pragmatic solutions should be explored and implemented - solutions that are within the reach of local communities and do not require the dirty money of “Occupy Central’s” political leaders, or the even dirtier leaders themselves.

Because just as “Occupy Central’s” leaders are now playing games of semantics to disclaim dubious funding and affiliations, they are likewise merely using semantics to portray their version of dictatorship and elitism as “different” to the one they claim exists in Beijing.

Today's Wars Are Fought with Protesters and Posters

As in the case of 'Bulldozer', 'Rose', 'Orange', 'Tulip', 'Cedar', 'Euromaidan' and other 'Color' revolutions

Andrew Korybko OPINION 3 hours ago | 557 0



Color Revolutions are two completely different things depending on one’s perspective.

They can either be friendly pro-democracy movements against evil dictatorships or wretched and illegal mob violence threatening stability and order.

Westerners tend to have an overall positive view of these events, whereas others are more suspicious, if not outright opposed to them. Let’s look at each one in brief.

The Prototype:

2000 – Serbia’s “Bulldozer Revolution”:
Protesters overthrew President Slobodan Milosevic after alleging that he rigged the election, with a pro-Western government soon replacing him.

The revolution itself was short, but the networking techniques utilized in it would be far-reaching and serve as a template for future Color Revolutions.

The Color Revolutions:

2003 – Georgia’s “Rose Revolution”:
As in Serbia, protesters alleged that then-president Eduard Shevardnadze manipulated an election to his favor and therefore had to be overthrown.

It was also very short and led to the vehemently pro-Western politician Mikhail Saakashvili assuming power.

2004 – Ukraine’s “Orange Revolution”:
Following the established pattern, protesters called for a revolution after Viktor Yanukovich was accused of defrauding the presidential vote.

They deposed him in a largely non-violent coup, and he was later replaced with Viktor Yushchenko and his sidekick Yulia Tymoshenko, both extreme Western sympathizers.

2005 – Kyrgyzstan’s “Tulip Revolution”:
People took to the streets to protest after President Askar Akayev was accused of manipulating a recent parliamentary vote. This revolution was marked by mild violence that eventually led to the pro-Western government of Kurmanbek Bakiev.

Color Revolutions 2.0:

Those were the official Color Revolutions as recognized by the West, but Russian observers characterize a few other government overthrows as following the same pattern:

2010 – Kyrgyz Revolution:
Disgusted at the rampant corruption of President Bakiev, the Kyrgyz people overthrew him in a violent movement that saw shades of ethnic tension against the Uzbek minority.

The new government reaffirmed its commitment to the contentious US transit facility at Manas (which some had discussed closing), but also pragmatically improved relations with Russia.

2011 – ‘Arab Spring’ Events:
All of these popularly known destabilizations were actually Color Revolutions, said Russia’s Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov during a conference last May, and they represent a new form of adaptive warfare by the US.

2013 Ukraine’s “EuroMaidan”:
Enraged by President Yanukovich’s decision to delay signing the EU Association Agreement, people from all over Ukraine traveled to Kiev to demand the government’s resignation and a pro-European political course.

Violent and extreme right-wing elements soon took charge of the movement and eventually overthrew the government a day after signing a supposed agreement to halt hostilities. Shortly thereafter, Kiev began a civil war against the Eastern Ukrainians who refused to accept the coup-imposed government’s authority.

The Common Denominators

On the surface, all of these events might look dissimilar and unrelated, but they really have a lot of integral things in common. Let’s take a look:

Ideology:
Many of the regime-change ringleaders calling for coups in the abovementioned areas followed the tactics of Gene Sharp, best known for his works “From Dictatorship to Democracy” and “The Politics of Nonviolent Action”.

Despite inspiring thousands of them in the afflicted areas, Sharp refuses to take credit for their efforts. He was also the subject of the award-winning British documentary “How to Start a Revolution”.

Organization:
All actual and suspected Color Revolutions had some type of pro-Western element within them, some more so than others.

Also, Western government-affiliated NGOs such as the National Endowment for Democracy and Open Society Foundation have been linked to some of the movements and their funding.

In terms of on-the-ground organization, many of the masses do not realize the geostrategic ramifications of their anti-government actions (whether honest or misguided), since they’re coordinated by a small core of activist.

The Event:

All Color Revolutions have some type of event that supposedly inspires their advocates to take to the streets.

This can be an election, a controversial piece of legislation, regional destabilization (as was the case with the ‘Arab Spring’), or whatever else could be marketed as galvanizing the gullible. The idea here is to pick an event of relative significance that can attract the attention of the Western media.

Foreign Media Pressure:

The Western media sooner or later always levels pressure against the governments defending against a Color Revolution. It doesn’t matter whether it was Muammar Gaddafi or Slobodan Milosevic, once the media paints a leader as being a ‘dictator suppressing democracy’, all coverage turns against them.

The Bigger Picture:

Playing the cynic, one could say that each Color Revolution benefited the US in its own way.

For example, the ones in the former Soviet republics helped create a cordon of anti-Russian pro-Western governments around Russia, while the ‘Arab Spring’ events could be seen as America’s intent to guide the inevitable leadership transitions in the region (Egypt, Tunisia) and also eliminate non-compliant governments like Gaddafi or Assad’s.

So you decide – are Color Revolutions really as spontaneous, innocuous, and indigenous as they’re made to seem, or could they really be a new form of indirect warfare against geostrategic states and resistant leaders?

Default The Impending "Russian Maidan"



December 21, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci - NEO) - The coordinated manipulation of global energy prices, a NATO build-up in Eastern Europe, and the rekindling of terrorism in Russia's southern Caucasus region all appear to be ever-increasing crescendos toward a much larger event - a "Russian Maidan."

The necessary components of a successful Western bid to overthrow the Russian political order include a political front protesting in Russia's major cities, as well as a full-spectrum economic war to put pressure on Russia's population, increasing dissent as well as swelling the ranks of staged protests Wall Street and Washington put in Russian streets. Another necessary component includes armed components to act under cover of "peaceful protesters" to escalate street demonstrations, prevent security forces from restoring order, and to carry out the actual physical overthrow of these security forces.

These elements could all be seen in neighboring Ukraine - a nation in which America and NATO's incessant meddling is a matter of long-standing public record. The Guardian would admit in its 2004 article, “US campaign behind the turmoil in Kiev,” that (emphasis added):


...while the gains of the orange-bedecked "chestnut revolution" are Ukraine's, the campaign is an American creation, a sophisticated and brilliantly conceived exercise in western branding and mass marketing that, in four countries in four years, has been used to try to salvage rigged elections and topple unsavoury regimes.

Funded and organised by the US government, deploying US consultancies, pollsters, diplomats, the two big American parties and US non-government organisations, the campaign was first used in Europe in Belgrade in 2000 to beat Slobodan Milosevic at the ballot box.

Richard Miles, the US ambassador in Belgrade, played a key role. And by last year, as US ambassador in Tbilisi, he repeated the trick in Georgia, coaching Mikhail Saakashvili in how to bring down Eduard Shevardnadze.

Ten months after the success in Belgrade, the US ambassador in Minsk, Michael Kozak, a veteran of similar operations in central America, notably in Nicaragua, organised a near identical campaign to try to defeat the Belarus hardman, Alexander Lukashenko.

That one failed. "There will be no Kostunica in Belarus," the Belarus president declared, referring to the victory in Belgrade.

But experience gained in Serbia, Georgia and Belarus has been invaluable in plotting to beat the regime of Leonid Kuchma in Kiev.

The operation - engineering democracy through the ballot box and civil disobedience - is now so slick that the methods have matured into a template for winning other people's elections.




Not only has Ukraine suffered because of this admitted US-backed political destabilization over the years, but as revealed by the Guardian and other sources, all of Eastern Europe has fallen prey to this brand of foreign-backed subversion, manipulation, and regime change. Considering this documented fact, the prospect of Wall Street and Washington trying likewise in Russia itself is not only possible, it has already been tried before, with likely attempts in the future only inevitable.

The Blockade...

Already at work is a coordinated manipulation of world oil prices. Revealed among plunging oil prices is that the entire industry is centrally manipulated not by market forces but by political agendas involving the US and its partners in the Middle East, most notably the enduring dictatorship in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. While any nation possesses the ability to weather such economic measures in the long-term as Iran and Cuba have proven, in the short-term, economic instability is one of the harbingers of political subversion where ranks of street demonstrations can be swelled by those who perceive such economic instability as the fault of the current government, rather than an economic attack from abroad.

The Political Front and Muscle

The political front that will take to Russia's streets has already long been identified. It includes the same brand of extreme "nationalists" and ultra-right groups seen overrunning Ukraine's political order. This includes literal Neo-Nazis. One of the prevailing figures among Russia's ultra-right is US-backed Alexey Navalny - billed by the West as an "anti-corruption activist," who is in all reality a neo-fascist operating openly in the service of Wall Street.

Alexey Navalny was a Yale World Fellow, and in his profile it states:


Alexey Navalny

Navalny spearheads legal challenges on behalf of minority shareholders in large Russian companies, including Gazprom, Bank VTB, Sberbank, Rosneft, Transneft, and Surgutneftegaz, through the Union of Minority Shareholders. He has successfully forced companies to disclose more information to their shareholders and has sued individual managers at several major corporations for allegedly corrupt practices. Navalny is also co-founder of the Democratic Alternative movement and was vice-chairman of the Moscow branch of the political party YABLOKO. In 2010, he launched RosPil, a public project funded by unprecedented fundraising in Russia. In 2011, Navalny started RosYama, which combats fraud in the road construction sector.

The Democratic Alternative, also written DA!, is a US State Department National Endowment for Democracy (NED) fund recipient, implicating Alexey Navalny as an agent of US-funded sedition. The US State Department itself reveals this as they list DA! among many of the "youth movements" they support operating in Russia:

DA!: Mariya Gaydar, daughter of former Prime Minister Yegor Gaydar, leads DA! (Democratic Alternative). She is ardent in her promotion of democracy, but realistic about the obstacles she faces. Gaydar said that DA! is focused on non-partisan activities designed to raise political awareness. She has received funding from the National Endowment for Democracy, a fact she does not publicize for fear of appearing compromised by an American connection.

That this funding is nowhere on NED's official website indicates that full disclosures are not being made and that NED is engaged in clandestine funding.

Navalny was involved directly in founding a movement funded by the US government and to this day has the very people who funded DA! defending him throughout Western media. The mention of co-founder Mariya Gaydar is also revealing, as she has long collaborated, and occasionally has been arrested with, Ilya Yashin, yet another leader of a NED-funded Russian "activist" opposition group.

Ilya Yashin leads the Moscow branch of the People's Freedom Party and is a leading member of the "Strategy 31" campaign whose ranks are filled with activists trained and coordinated by US NED-funded NGOs. Deleted from the official NED.org website was Strategy 31's US funding:
Moscow Group of Assistance in the Implementation of the Helsinki Accords $50,000
To draw greater attention to the issue of freedom of assembly in Russia and to the “Strategy 31” movement, which seeks to protect this fundamental right. The organization will train a network of regional activists and coordinate their activities through mini-seminars and field visits, and conduct an information cam*paign through press conferences, posters, and educational handouts pertaining to freedom of assembly, to be distributed to the general public by regional partners.
Also deleted was a NED "Democracy Digest" article titled "Strategy 31: A sign of civil society's resilience." In it, the "Moscow Helsinki Group" is explicitly stated as leading Strategy 31 marches and that the group is a "long-time grantee of the National Endowment of Democracy."

The multiple deletions across NED's networks of Russian "activists" it is heavily funding and directing is yet another sign of imminent subversion, in hopes that links cannot be provided fast enough as the unrest unfolds to undermine the legitimacy of the otherwise US-engineered subversion.

Yashin's People's Freedom Party is lined not only with NED-funded "youth," but also lined with career politicians and businessmen collaborating with foreign-interests. Among them is Vladimir Ryzhkov a member of the NED-funded, Washington-based World Movement for Democracy (whose profile has also been recently deleted). There is also Boris Nemtsov whose adviser, Vladimir Kara-Murza (of Solidarnost) took part in a September 14, 2011 NED-sponsored event titled, "Elections in Russia: Polling and Perspectives."

Revealed is a political front entirely created by the US State Department to pose as the aspirations of the Russian people while in reality a creation and perpetuation of the aspirations of Wall Street and Washington. Under the unrest this front creates may be a heavily armed front consisting of ultra-right Neo-Nazis as observed in Ukraine, heavily armed sectarian terrorists backed by Saudi Arabia, or both.


A Look At America's "Sedition" Handbook

The use of armed elements to assist in US-engineered political subversion is not speculation. Rather, it is a documented policy included in plans laid for the undermining and overthrowing of other governments around the world. In one particular 2009 US policy paper titled, "Which Path to Persia?" by the Brookings Institution regarding the overthrow of Iran, it is stated specifically that:
One method that would have some possibility of success would be to ratchet up covert regime change efforts in the hope that Tehran would retaliate overtly, or even semi-overtly, which could then be portrayed as an unprovoked act of Iranian aggression.

Here, US policymakers are openly conspiring to covertly provoke a nation through political subversion. The resulting "act of aggression" would be portrayed as "unprovoked," just as has been done regarding Russia's involvement in neighboring Ukraine and all moves since Moscow has undertaken as the US and NATO continue to move toward war.

The policy paper also openly talks about the particulars of fomenting political unrest. Under a section called literally, "Finding the Right Proxies" it states:
One of the hardest tasks in fomenting a revolution, or even just unrest, is finding the right local partners.
After openly admitting the goal of "fomenting a revolution" or "unrest," it then details what support to provide these proxies:

...students and other groups need covert backing for their demonstrations. They need fax machines. They need internet access, funds to duplicate materials, and funds to keep vigilantes from beating them up. Beyond this, U.S.-backed media outlets could highlight regime shortcomings and make otherwise obscure critics more prominent. The United States already supports Persian-language satellite television (Voice of america Persian) and radio (radio Farda) that bring unfiltered news to Iranians (in recent years, these have taken the lion’s share of overt U.S. funding for promoting democracy in Iran). U.S. economic pressure (and perhaps military pressure as well) can discredit the regime, making the population hungry for a rival leadership.
The report finally mentions armed groups supporting US-engineered sedition:
Some who favor fomenting regime change in Iran argue that it is utopian to hold out hope for a velvet revolution; instead, they contend that the United States should turn to Iranian opposition groups that already exist, that already have demonstrated a desire to fight the regime, and who appear willing to accept U.S. assistance. The hope behind this course of action is that these various opposition groups could transform themselves into more potent movements that might be able to overturn the regime.
What is troubling about this 2009 report is that each and every conspiracy contained within is not only confirmed by the authors to already be well underway against Iran, it is now clear that similar tactics have been used against Syria, China, and Russia itself. The "Arab Spring" was little more than these tactics used on a regional scale, and what was done in Syria and even Ukraine are almost verbatim pages torn from this playbook.

For a campaign aimed at Moscow itself, it is likely the same playbook will once again be employed. Exposing the insidious, malicious criminality of US policymakers who openly conspire to provoke other nations into conflict and manipulate public perception to maintain moral primacy is the first step to undoing attempts to destabilize and undermine Russia, and all other nations caught in the crosshairs of Wall Street and Washington.

While the West continues to portray Russia as the "aggressor," throughout America's own policy papers it can be seen that such accusations are just one part of an immensely insidious and deceitful plan. Portraying Russia as the "aggressors" helps justify further measures to set the board for widespread political subversion within Russia itself. It seeks to justify not only direct ties to opposition groups when they are finally revealed, but also increasingly aggressive interventions both by armed proxies and NATO forces themselves to continue propping up these opposition groups.

The spectacular nature of "invasions" as we imagine them, such as the Nazi blitzkrieg into Western Europe are behind us. Invasions within fourth generation warfare utilize faux opposition groups, covert military support, and full-spectrum economic, political, and information warfare. Russia has built defenses against this form of warfare, confounding the West , but ultimately the moral high ground and all of its advantages is a position only one can hold. Either by truth through exposing the West's means and agenda will Russia climb to the top, or through the West's continued successful deception, will Russia be pelted below.

Azerbaijan police attack Radio Liberty office in Baku

Fri Dec 26, 2014 2:31PM GMT


This file photo shows plainclothes police officers detaining a journalist during a protest in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The US-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) says police officers and prosecutors in the Republic of Azerbaijan have raided the office of its local service in the capital, Baku.

Kenan Aliyev, the director of RFE/RL’s local service in Baku, said Azeri prosecutors accompanied by armed police forces combed the office of the radio station, known as Radio Azadliq in Azerbaijan, “saying they have a court order to shut down the office.”

He added that the equipment and computers in the office were confiscated, while journalists working for the radio station were forced out of the office. Telephone and Internet lines are down.

Aliyev denounced the attack as “part of an overall crackdown on free media in Azerbaijan.”

The move came after the country arrested Khadija Ismayilova, a prominent investigative journalist with Radio Azadliq, in early December. Ismayilova, who has frequently revealed the business dealings of senior politicians in Azerbaijan, has been placed in pre-trial detention for two months.

Following her detention, rights groups censured the move, with Amnesty International denouncing it as a “move to silence independent media voices in the country.”

John Dalhuisen, the Europe and Central Asia Program director at Amnesty International, said authorities in Azerbaijan “must stop this harassment of journalists just for doing their jobs.”

Earlier this month, President Ilham Aliyev’s chief of staff, Ramiz Mehdiev, accused Radio Azadliq’s journalists of “treason” and called them a “fifth column” working for foreign security services. that's right.

Dissent in the energy-rich Caspian Sea country often receives a tough response from the government, with rights groups accusing Baku of launching a crackdown on opponents since Aliyev's election to a third term in 2013.

Many activists and independent journalists have been put behind bars in Azerbaijan since its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.

Default OTPOR! Navalny gets himself arrested at Moscow protest

Typical OTPOR! tactic - Darling of the progressive West, Navalny gets himself arrested, quickly publicising the event on twatter, jewbook, BBC, etc.


"I'm going too," said Navalny on twatter

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been arrested at a protest in Moscow, hours after being given a suspended sentence for fraud.

His brother Oleg had been given a three-and-a-half-year prison term for the same offence.

Navalny had tweeted a picture of himself on the way to the Manezh Square rally and was later pictured there.

He says the charges were politically motivated and linked to his opposition to President Vladimir Putin.

Navalny had called on his supporters to "take to the streets" after the sentencing.

He then tweeted a selfie on a metro carriage, with the caption: "House arrest- yes. But today I really want to be with you. That's why I'm going too #Manezhka".

Television pictures from Manezh square showed hundreds of people gathered in temperatures below -10C.

Pictures of Navalny at the protest have been circulated on Twitter.

Police cars and several coaches could also be seen.

Thousands had said on Facebook that they planned to attend the rally near the Kremlin, at 19:00

The rest of the circus allegedly shows up:

18 protesters, including members of the punk provocateur band Pussy Riot, have been detained in Moscow after spending the night near the Red Square.

Pussy Riot member Maria Alekhina said on Twitter that she and other protesters who stayed the night near the famous Moscow landmark were detained by police early Wednesday.

"Activists" at the OVD Info group said 18 people were taken to a nearby police station.

Default Good article!

http://landdestroyer.blogspot.co.uk/...hen-world.html

While euphemisms ought to be avoided, as a general rule, the author of this piece (Tony Cartalucci) is probably just pessimistic about his readership's level of servility; 'Anglo-American' financiers, 'Globalists' can only mean Jews, and their white lackeys.

Christian or secular, nearly all white Americans really do sense their own impending displacement but have genuflected (opportunistically) for so long, they recoil at even the thought of actually identifying their destroyers.

Default Thailand: Criminal case and five-year political ban for Yingluck

Yingluck Shinawatra will face criminal charges in the Supreme Court and if found guilty faces up to 10 years in jail, the Attorney General's Office said on Friday.

"Thai democracy hypocrisy has died along with the rule of law," she said in a post on her Facebook page. Boohoo.

Default Hong Kong’s Umbrellas are ‘Made in USA’ Part Two

Hong Kong Crisis: Made in America

Claims that Western interests are driving unrest in Hong Kong to undermine China have been decried across the Western media as "fake news," "disinformation," and even grounds for censorship from platforms like Facebook and Twitter.



Yet a look at the organizations directly involved in leading the unrest and those supporting it reveals unequivocally that it originates in Washington DC - not organically from within Hong Kong itself.

In order to conceal this fact, the Western media has attempted to portray the unrest as "leaderless." Yet coordinated protests most certainly have both leaders and organizations directing the majority of the movement's decisions as well as providing the logistical support necessary for the sustained unrest Hong Kong now faces.

Who is Leading Hong Kong's Unrest

Despite repeated and unrealistic claims that Hong Kong's recent protests are "leaderless," they are clearly being led by a combination of opposition political parties, supporting fronts posing as nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and foreign-funded media organizations.

Even partial admissions of this fact can be found throughout Western coverage of these supposed "leaderless" protests.

Hong Kong Indigenous: A July 2019 Quartz article titled, "The leader of Hong Kong’s leaderless protest movement is a philosophy student behind bars," would admit:

...there is one person to whom many protesters have turned to for inspiration and guidance, even though he hasn’t been physically present at any of the demonstrations: jailed activist Edward Leung.

The article also reports:

Over the past two to three weeks, protesters have also begun to march with placards of Leung’s face. Meanwhile, Leung’s 2016 election slogan (link in Chinese)—”Reclaim Hong Kong! Revolution of our times!”—has roared back in full force, quickly becoming the clarion call of the current wave of protests.

Edward Leung
is a leading figure of the Hong Kong Indigenous political party which holds zero seats in either of Hong Kong's elected legislative bodies.




While Quartz describes Leung's "localism" movement as emphasizing "Hong Kong identity as separate to mainland Chinese" and openly advocating "Hong Kong's independence from China," the "localism" movement itself is by no means independent.

In a 2016 South China Morning Post article titled, "‘Not some kind of secret meeting’: Hong Kong Indigenous leaders meet with American diplomats," Edward Leung and fellow Hong Kong Indigenous member Ray Wong would attempt to explain why they were caught secretly meeting with US consulate staff in Hong Kong.

The article would claim:

The photos, published by news website Bastille Post on Wednesday night, showed three members of the group – including Edward Leung Tin-kei and Ray Wong Toi-yeung – meeting two consulate staffers. The quintet reportedly chatted for around an hour and a half, speaking in Putonghua at times, before going their separate ways.

Some mainland media and Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying have both claimed that there were foreign forces behind the city’s pro-democracy protests of 2014.


Today, Edward Leung encourages protesters from jail, including members of his political party to continue sowing unrest across Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Free Press - itself a foreign-backed media platform admittedly partners with US-UK government-funded fronts including PEN Hong Kong - would admit in an article titled, "Jailed Hong Kong activist Edward Leung urges protesters to focus on convincing those who oppose them," that Leung has been writing letters addressed to the protesters - who in turn carry his portrait around in the streets and have used his 2014 protest slogan during recent unrest.

Ray Wong has since fled Hong Kong being granted asylum in Germany, the South China Morning Post would report in their article, "Hong Kong activists wanted over Mong Kok riots granted asylum in Germany."

In every instance, Hong Kong Indigenous has been supported by the United States and its European partners. Holding no elected seats in Hong Kong's government and thus in no way representing the will of the people of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Indigenous instead represents Washington's ambitions of maintaining Hong Kong as a foothold in and a pressure point against China.

Demosisto Party: Having held only one seat in Hong Kong's elected legislative bodies - Demosisto is also playing an active role in leading and directing recent protests. Its secretary general - Joshua Wong - is openly involved in leading current protests.



Wong was also a prominent figure during the 2014 "Umbrella Revolution," and was invited to Washington DC by National Endowment for Democracy (NED) subsidiary - Freedom House - to collect an award for his role in leading the unrest .




On Freedom House's own website, a post titled, "Freedom House marks its 75th anniversary by honoring three generations of Hong Kong democracy leaders: Joshua Wong, Benny Tai and Martin C. M. Lee," would praise Wong, claiming:

Wong rallied over 200,000 peaceful protestors in 2014 during the Umbrella Revolution. For his efforts, he has been recognized by notable media outlets including Fortune, Time Magazine, Foreign Policy, and London’s The Times. He has been arrested by Chinese authorities on a number of occasions, which sparked international outrage and further protests in Hong Kong.
Wong is now center stage amid current protests with his name regularly appearing in articles like The Times' "Hong Kong protests: Joshua Wong says British police commander ‘must pay price’," directing the agenda, focus, and tempo of the unrest.


While platforms like Google, Twitter, and Facebook delete accounts attempting to expose the West's role in backing unrest in Hong Kong, the Strait Times in an article titled, "Google warns Hong Kong's Joshua Wong of government-backed hackers," suggests US-based tech giants continue to provide assistance to Western-backed opposition groups and figures - including Wong - just as they were exposed doing in 2011 during the so-called "Arab Spring."

Fellow Demosisto member Nathan Law is also admittedly involved in recent protests in Hong Kong, as revealed in an NPR interview titled, "Political Crisis In Hong Kong Deepens As Protests Turn Violent."



He is afforded not only interviews by prominent Western media organizations, but also editorial space. His op-ed in The Guardian titled, "The extradition bill might be ‘dead’ but in Hong Kong, we cannot afford to back down," declares his intentions to continue leading protests. He too has been invited to Washington DC.

As recently as May 2019, Nathan Law was invited by the US NED to speak at an event titled, "New Threats to Civil Society and the Rule of Law in Hong Kong" where he would complain about Beijing and specifically about the extradition law that was supposedly the trigger for recent protests. With the law withdrawn - protests continue - clearly aimed at undermining Beijing and China's wider political stability - a goal of Washington's rather than any real, local goal.

Hong Kong Free Press in another article titled, "Hong Kong protester accused of biting off police officer’s finger charged, as Demosisto activists remain in detention," would admit other Demosisto party members were involved in leading protests, reporting:

...pro-democracy group Demosisto said that two of its members – Calvin Chu and William Liu – were arrested on unlawful assembly charges on Sunday.


From Wong and Law literally travelling to Washington DC to collect awards for serving US interests or to speak about their intents to continue serving them, to US-based IT giants personally providing Wong with support, to the Western media promoting Demosisto member Nathan Law's take on the protests - it is clear there are figures - indeed - familiar figures with known ties to foreign interests - leading this supposedly "leaderless" protest.

Martin Lee: Another prominent leader of both the 2014 and current protests is Martin Lee - founding chairman of the Democratic Party.

Who is Supporting Hong Kong's Unrest

While the NED repeatedly denies it is funding various figures leading Hong Kong's unrest directly - it has been documented that it and its various subsidiaries fund organizations these figures work with or for.

The NED's own website regarding its activities and funding in Hong Kong is deliberately ambiguous to conceal the full extent of its interference in China's internal political affairs.

The fact that virtually every protest leader currently involved in Hong Kong's protests has travelled to Washington DC at one point or another specifically to attend events supporting protests in Hong Kong and the undermining of Chinese sovereignty - or has consorted with US consulate representatives in Hong Kong itself - illustrates the deep, foreign-funded nature of Hong Kong's current unrest.

The NED itself is chaired by prominent American pro-war advocates as well as advocates for regime change. For example, NED board member Elliot Abrams is listed as "on leave" while he attempts to organize the overthrow of the Venezuelan government. Despite the organization's name, the National Endowment for Democracy merely hides its regime change agenda behind the notion of "promoting democracy."

The fact that UK-based Hong Kong Watch promotes - verbatim - the protesters' demands and agenda - with Hong Kong Watch itself being funded by the British government, further illustrates how Hong Kong's current protests are being engineered and promoted by and solely for the benefit of foreign interests.

Finally, an "Open Letter from 68 NGOs Regarding Proposed Changes To Hong Kong’s Extradition Law," was signed by organizations overwhelmingly either openly funded by the US and British governments - including the above mentioned PEN Hong Kong and Hong Kong Watch, indirectly through Western-based corporate-funded foundations like Reporters Without Borders and the Committee to Protect Journalists, or who obfuscate the source of their funding as many US-UK-EU funded fronts do to avoid exposing an otherwise glaring lack of legitimacy and agency.




Democracy by definition is a process of self-determination - not determined overseas by Washington, London, and Brussels. Whatever it is protesters in Hong Kong are fighting for - it is not "democracy."

As the US has plotted for decades - as revealed in the Pentagon Papers leaked in 1971 - chaos in Hong Kong is part of a much larger regional and global strategy to encircle and contain China. Hong Kong is meant to serve as a Western foothold within Chinese territory. Efforts by Washington to promote violent separatism in Xinjiang and Tibet have also been ongoing for decades.

China's regional neighbors including ASEAN members also face similar subversion and coercion from Washington as part of this same strategy.

By exposing the artificial nature of Hong Kong's current protests, their illegitimacy can be fully exposed as well - giving the majority of Hong Kong's population the ability to wrest control of their streets back from this foreign-funded conspiracy against not only Hong Kong, but against China to which Hong Kong once again belongs after nearly two centuries of Anglo-American domination.
