Cadence Column: Asia, May 13, 2019


Trump knew the Chinese all along, all too well. The “trade war” never risked creating a real war; the “trade war” was a ploy the whole time—part of an elaborate scheme to provoke the Chinese into striking too soon. He says talks are going well with China—he can’t not say that. China is indeed willing … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, April 22, 2019


China faces more scrutiny from its own propaganda while Taiwan searches its own soul. Taiwanese elections are fast approaching. Demagoguery is in full swing. Even the founder of Foxconn says a Chinese god told him to run for president. We could say that billionaires are the presidential trend, but Terry Gou’s (郭台銘) money is largely … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, March 25, 2019


Now, China has become the dark example of why not to be a Democrat in America. This is a new low. As much as being compared to China makes Democrats appear bad, it makes China appear all the worse because it paints China as the archetype of “how not to be”. American sentiment against China … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, November 26, 2018


Taiwan held something akin to a “mid-term” election this past Saturday. The people revolted against the previous revolt. When electing the DPP two years ago, the people were fed up with the capitulation policies of Ma. Now, they are fed up with bad management of infrastructure, also an “establishment culture” surfacing in what should be … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, October 24, 2016


Pro-China legislators blocked the swearing-in of pro-Independence lawmakers in Hong Kong. Pro-Independence activists from Hong Kong told Taiwanese not to give up on independence. China said that independence for either Taiwan or Hong Kong is a “futile” plot. Then, Hong Kong told Taiwan not to meddle in other countries’ affairs. Taiwan’s former president from the … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia July 20, 2015


“Pacific fever”—the state of forgetting which country one is in. China is headed for an all out tailspin, economically and politically. Beijing was smart with money, courting foreign investment, and even smart with religion—allowing Christianity on the condition it did not form a de facto political caucus. The economy went up. The number of Christians … Continue reading

Prelude to Conflict: Asia, December 1


Taiwan’s landslide election was more historic than the Democrats’ whompping early November. The vote didn’t reject Taiwan’s KMT-Nationalist party as much as it rejected Beijing. One big factor ignored by media: Clearing HK demonstrators in Mong Kong two days before Taiwan elections solidified voters’ decision: The KMT’s de facto agenda of “Taiwan SAR” is unacceptable. … Continue reading

Prelude to Conflict: Asia, October 13


Hong Kong police violence was as angering as it was unusual. Hong Kong woke up, then Hong Kongers woke up the world. Beijing will neither listen nor crackdown. Instead, they make fools of themselves. No Tiananmen part deux, condolences to Western media. This week, the world learned: Neither the current Beijing government, nor the former … Continue reading

Prelude to Conflict: Asia, September 22


When Ma stepped on board Taiwan’s frigate and smiled for the camera, he wasn’t smiling for the Taiwanese, he was smiling for Washington. Beijing has harboured too much friendliness with the KMT Nationalists and not enough with Taiwan’s DPP. Washington’s comments last week about supporting the KMT in 2016 will change that to shape both … Continue reading

Prelude to Conflict: Asia, September 15


The main topic in the press, though strange: China vs the Environment. Hong Kong’s democracy movement progresses, their opposition (mostly professors and members of government) also get louder. The US even piped in, stating that they were likely to endorse Taiwan’s pro-Beijing controlling KMT party. While the US is most likely trying to say whatever … Continue reading

Prelude to Conflict: Asia, August 25


Asia has a bigger problem now: A Beijing spy investigation. This could tip the balance in the US military favor because the Western public doesn’t like Beijing spies. Beijing is unlikely to back down. Even in online gaming, the Chinese have trouble knowing when they are losing. They are also easy to provoke on accident. … Continue reading

Taiwan demonstrations continue: western media forgets


As the Sunflower Movement stated upon leaving Taiwan‘s legislative chamber, they would return. The movement never had “tunnel vision”, but was focused on a long list of grievances. The secret “black box” trade negotiation between China and US Military ally Taiwan was only the one straw on the camel’s back. In this recent round of government … Continue reading

Taiwan’s KMT party exhibits pre-Nazi-like behaviour


Mitch Yang, spokesman for the 1996 Taiwanese student protest in Los Angeles when China launched a missile during Taiwan’s first Presidential election, has been warning about this sort of thing. “I see a strong similarity between what Ma is doing and what happened in Germany when Nazis… eventually, gradually, turned the country into a dictatorship,” Yang said. … Continue reading

Taiwan: Puppet democracies are for children – Washington “adults” don’t understand


Taiwan’s government does not have a robust system of checks and balances as the US does. Instead, has the near identical system of making laws as China’s government: new law doesn’t come from Congress or the President, but from the “Premiere”, a non-elected bureaucrat who heads the Executive branch comprised of other non-elected bureaucrats—in Taiwan … Continue reading

College students are China’s hope for democracy; Over 100,000 protest in Taiwan


We Chinese are proud of our college students. They are the driving force of Chinese history. See how similar the Taiwan college students’ campaign to defend Taiwan’s democracy is to the Chinese college students’ campaign for democracy at Tiananmen Square 25 years ago. They are so disciplined and well-organised, strong but peaceful. They are so … Continue reading

Prelude to Conflict: Asia, March 31


China and the West want China and the West to know that they are in a prelude to war. Here are a few reasons why from recently… The Hidden Agenda of President Ma’s ‘Economics First, Politics Later’ Cross-Strait Policy Explanation of why Ma is so dangerous. Foundation to file lawsuits over crackdown The unspoken legal … Continue reading
