The record Hong Kong voter turnout of 71.2 percent of the 4.1 million registered voters in last Sunday’s 18 District Council elections, in which the pro-democratic candidates crushed their pro-government opponents who had dominated the district council seats, was a stunning victory for democracy.  The pan-democrats...

Hong Kong will survive the current turmoil. Hongkongers are survivors and been there before. Not only those born in Hong Kong, but those of us who are immigrants from America, China, United Kingdom, Australia, India, Canada, Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe, Middle East and everywhere else on earth. We survived back...

Last week on October 1, the Chinese Communist Party celebrated 70 years of seizing control of China and the founding of the People’s Republic in 1949 — while its civil war with the Nationalist Party was still ongoing — and building the world’s second largest economy and a mighty military machine that is flexing its...

The Year of the Pig signifies abundance, prosperity and wealth in China. Not so this year. African Swine Flu has decimated the Chinese pig industry. The China-U.S. Trade dispute made matters worse because China decided to replace its U.S. pork purchases with sick pigs from Russia. The U.S. is the world’s...

Political animals in America, Britain, China, Iran, Russia and …. have all gone into political-spin overdrive. Time out from institutional political barks and howls. Time to pay attention and give time to animals. Real animals. Our companions who love us unconditionally. What a pleasure to see more than 6,000 pet...

With the 2020 presidential and congressional elections in the U.S. warming up in the shadow of the current U.S.-China trade dispute, anti-Semitism and China thumping are on the rise. Income inequality, economic stagnation, looming recession, fear of unknown cultures, civilizations and people, make many Anglos, Latinos...

Watching the House Judiciary Committee members yesterday put forth their respective arguments for and against impeaching Attorney General William Barr, I couldn’t help conclude America’s political system, like most political systems worldwide — is rigged. The partisan arguments for impeachment by the Democratic...

The arrest of Zhang Yujing on March 30 at the reception area of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida, with a thumb drive with malicious software on it, four mobile phones, a laptop, and an external hard drive — in addition to the nine thumb drives and a device used to detect hidden cameras found in her hotel room — does...
