(SCMP) 21 year old “Alex” a Hong Kong student has accused  Police of beating him with fists and batons, subsequently pepper spraying him straight into his eyes, temporarily blinding him Wednesday night during the continuing freedom demonstrations.

Alex was among 45 people arrested by Hong Kong Police Thugs–later saying that he was “scared and angry at the moment but now overwhelmed with sadness and extreme disappointment at the Police force.” 

As Hong Kong’s mass ‘Freedom Movement’ continues, the China regime has detained dozens of mainland residents openly supporting the movement for universal suffrage rights activists while Obama continues to say nothing on behalf of the pro-Democracy students.

(Washington Free Beacon) The White House has announced that it will not follow the strict standards imposed by Obama last year to avoid civilian airstrikes in Syria and Iraq–this decision comes just weeks after the Obama Administration said that it supports an investigation of Israel for war crimes during its air campaign against Hamas Jihadists in Gaza.

State Dept spokesperson Marie Harf stated plainly in reference to Israel that ‘the suspicion that militants are operating nearby does not justify airstrikes that put at risk the lives of so many innocent civilians.’

On the 29 July, I wrote here that Hamas Jihadists had fired more than 2,538 rockets indiscriminately into civilian areas in Israel since Operation Protective Edge had begun.

Where is the moral outrage by the Obama Administration regarding the want for totalitarianism by Hamas Jihadists and the China regime against freedom loving people in Israel and Hong Kong?

(BBC) A small but growing number of people have been arrested by authorities across China for expressing support for the Hong Kong Freedom Movement.

Twelve police officers knocked on Ding Weibing’s door at midnight–they had come to detain him for his role in organizing artists last week. Mr Ding had planned on reading poetry and displaying posters in support of events in Hong Kong.

“I was very scared, it was midnights and there were so many police at my door,” Chen Meiling told the BBC

“They were very loud and rude, they scolded my husband and forced him to squat on the floor as they were questioning him.”

Police ordered the couple to turn off their mobile phones, confiscated their computer and camera memory card before taking Mr Ding away.

“I felt like we had been invaded,” added Chen Meiling, my husband is a decent man who pursued justice. He didn’t do anything wrong.”

The BBC has confirmed the names of at least 7 to 12 people that have been arrested and detained in Beijing–at least one Wang Zang, has been charged with   ‘picking quarrels and provoking trouble.’

Obama Continues to Say Nothing in Support of Democracy in Hong Kong, Only Asks China Regime to Exercise Restraint

(BBC) The Obama Administration continues to fail to support Hong Kong pro-Democracy advocates, only merely asking that the China regime exercise restraint–The CCP calls the  demonstrations illegal and chaotic, warning if they continue, ‘consequences will be unimaginable’ according to state media.

Flashback: Remember in April 2010, when Obama renewed his commitment in support of the Marxist Totalitarianism ‘One China Policy’ for Taiwan which speaks volumes as to why Obama doesn’t support Freedom & Democracy in Hong Kong.

(Epoch Times) China regime fear the power of the example of protests for democracy in Hong Kong and are diligently working to block news of it from reaching mainland Chinese people.

A microblog post by a Chinese Netizen gives an idea what has the China Regine so worried:

“One can see the imperial (Chinese Communist Party) government’s dictatorship through this incident of the Hong Kong citizens peaceful disobedience” wrote Dai Zhaojun who identifies himself from Guangdong Province. “It uses violence to take democracy away from the Hong Kong people, which disappoints the Hong Kong people, the people of mainland China and the world.”

More than 195,000 have signed a White House Petition seeking the Obama Administration to support the peaceful Pro-Democracy movement and prevent a second Tiananmen massacre in Hong Kong but Obama remains silent.

Chinese Activist Hu Jia Finds Car Vandalized, Why the China Regime Won’t Stop Harassing Him

Hu Jia Car VandalizedChinese Human Rights Activist Hu Jia Tweeted Found his Car Vandalized This Morning, Is This Another Warning to him by the China Regime?

On the 05 January, 2008 I wrote here that Chinese authorities arrested Hu Jia at his Beijing home accusing him of “Subverting State Authority” a charge often times used against dissidents.

In August, Foreign Policy reprinted an open letter by Hu Jia to the China regime in which he described his life as a “prisoner of conscience” and being under constant surveillance by Chinese authorities, preventing most people from visiting him.

“I’m not alone. All Chinese dissidents are in prison, some are in official prisons, guarded by police that stand behind high walls and electric wires, others are in societal prisons buttressed by “stability maintenance” the name the Chinese Communist Party’s system of controlling what it sees as unstable elements and some like me, move back and forth between the two.”

In July, Radio Free Asia published a photo of Hu Jia after he reportedly was beaten up by “trained men’ (plainclothes cops) on a Beijing street.

Isn’t it ironic and quite frightening, that the annual Beijing Forum on Human Rights kicked off  this week when the China regime has such a dismal human rights record.
