Meanwhile raging protesters in LONDON knock HK Secretary for Justice to the ground...

If the PLA comes into HK and smashes the student protesters ... I suspect that this would make life 'difficult' for any citizen of the PRC who lives or travels outside of China.... 
 
Of course that would also collapse our economy as well.
 
As much as people want simple solutions to complex problems ---  there are none.

Protesters in England are very polite. If she is in the Hong Kong street, she must be beaten up seriously by both Blue and Yellow sides. A lot of people hate her.

Teresa Cheng felled down the street herself ! It is not like what Lam Cheng said in media "Protesters have beaten her up.' Liars are liars, they will never changed ! They created really bad honors for Hong Kong !

I finally found something agreeable with you.

The US Senate on Tuesday passed a bill that could pave the way for diplomatic action and economic sanctions against Hong Kong, likely sending the legislation to President Donald Trump to sign into law.  

 
Congress’s upper chamber put the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, sponsored by Florida Republican Marco Rubio, through an expedited process that sidestepped a roll call vote, allowing the bill to pass without any objections.
 
The Senate also passed the Protect Hong Kong Act, sponsored by Oregon Democrat Jeff Merkley, which would prohibit US companies from exporting non-lethal crowd control and defence items to the city.
 
“The United States Senate sent a clear message to Hong Kongers fighting for their long-cherished freedoms: we hear you, we continue to stand with you, and we will not stand idly by as Beijing undermines your autonomy,” Rubio announced.
 
“The passage of this bill is an important step in holding accountable those Chinese and Hong Kong government officials responsible for Hong Kong’s eroding autonomy and human rights violations.

China Threatens Retaliation After Senate Passes Bill Supporting Hong Kong Protests; Stocks, Yuan Tumble
 
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Yan Shuang has issued a very strong statement:
 
On November 19th, the US Senate passed the "Hong Kong Bill of Rights on Human Rights and Democracy." The bill disregards the facts, confuses right and wrong, violates the axioms, plays with double standards, openly intervenes in Hong Kong affairs, interferes in China's internal affairs, and seriously violates the basic norms of international law and international relations. The Chinese side strongly condemns and resolutely opposes this.
 
In the past five months, the persistent violent criminal acts in Hong Kong have seriously jeopardized the safety of the public's life and property, seriously trampled on the rule of law and social order, seriously undermined Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, and seriously challenged the bottom line of the "one country, two systems" principle.
 
At present, what Hong Kong faces is not the so-called human rights and democracy issues, but the issue of ending the storms, maintaining the rule of law and restoring order as soon as possible.
 
The Chinese central government will continue to firmly support the Hong Kong SAR Government in its administration of the law, firmly support the Hong Kong police in law enforcement, and firmly support the Hong Kong Judiciary in punishing violent criminals in accordance with the law, protecting the lives and property of Hong Kong residents and maintaining Hong Kong's prosperity and stability.
 
Since the return of Hong Kong to the motherland, the practice of "one country, two systems" has achieved universally recognized success. Hong Kong residents enjoy unprecedented democratic rights and fully exercise various freedoms in accordance with the law.
 
The relevant bills of the US Congress completely ignore the objective facts and completely ignore the well-being of Hong Kong residents. For the ulterior political purpose, the Hong Kong violent elements are smashed, bullying and attacking innocent citizens, forcibly occupying the campus and besieging young students. Organized attacks on the police and other criminal acts are striving for the pursuit of "human rights" and "democracy".
 
The purpose is to support the extremist forces and violent elements in the anti-China chaos and to undermine Hong Kong's prosperity and stability so that they can borrow Hong Kong. The problem hinders the sinister plot of China's development. This bad behavior of the United States not only harms China’s interests, but also undermines the important interests of the United States itself in Hong Kong.
 
Any attempt by the US to intervene in China's internal affairs and hinder China's development will not succeed. In the end, it will only be a waste of effort.
 
I want to stress once again that Hong Kong is China's Hong Kong and Hong Kong affairs are purely China's internal affairs. We are telling the US to recognize the situation and take the plunge. We will immediately take measures to prevent the case from becoming a law.
 
We will immediately stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and interfering in China's internal affairs so as not to ignite the fire and suffer from self-sufficiency.
 
If the US side is willing to go its own way, China will surely take effective measures to resolutely counteract and firmly safeguard national sovereignty, security, and development interests.

Trump signs bills backing Hong Kong protesters into law 
 

President Donald Trump has signed two bills supporting the Hong Kong protesters into law on Wednesday, despite Beijing’s repeated objections.

“I signed these bills out of respect for President Xi, China, and the people of Hong Kong. They are being enacted in the hope that Leaders and Representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences leading to long term peace and prosperity for all,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

Many pro-democracy supporters do not understand The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. I am here to explain it clearly and do not act as any pro-CCP official, Hong Kong official, pro-democracy politician or district official, some pro-democracy officials may mislead those pro-democracy supporters supported them blindly. Many people do not understand the true meaning of the bill. It is good yet it is bad. Some students are way too young to know what they are doing and the consequences of their actions. People just need to help spread the word. the bills need to hold pro-democracy politicians and novices accountable for their actions.

The bill requires the Secretary of State to submit an annual report to Congress to assess whether Hong Kong continues to enjoy special treatment different from mainland China,

* If Hong Kong does not have democratic development, the United States will cancel Hong Kong's special conditions. *

The State Council is required not to refuse visas to Hong Kong democratic and peaceful protesters based on their arrest records.

* But these terms and conditions do not include VIOLENT protesters. *

The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act also requires the President to establish a sanctions list to impose sanctions on those who erode Hong Kong's autonomy and the rule of law, such as denial of entry and freezing of assets in the United States.

* This term and condition means anyone misleading the basic law & Sino-British Joint Declaration-1 country 2 systems, they will be on the sanctions list. *

President Donald Trump signed a law Wednesday supporting pro-democracy PEACEFUL protesters in Hong Kong ! He hoped the “leaders and representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences.”

Pro-democracy supporters will have to see what pro-democracy politicians and 18 districts' novices can do with 19 billions of their salaries and allowance these 4 years. If they will not do anything better for HK democracy, please do not think that USA will support them.

Like I said, pro-democracy 18 districts' novices did not have full time jobs so they entered into the election in terms of money ( the salary and allowance ) and the budget of 18 districts' development.

We will see if Pro-democracy voters supported 18 districts' novices to get the high paid jobs by using the word of democracy ! :)

Please remember Hong Kongers and expats' taxes to pay for them ! Thanksgiving !
