IMPORTANT


In general, US backed regime change ops. are requested by multinational corporations operating in that country in the first place. Such as United Fruit Company in Cuba and ITT in Chile. Thus governmental bodies and bureaucrats just respond to demands from capitalists. If we historically compare the CIA classical covert operations in Chile between 1960s to 1973 with the ongoing Hong Kong anti-extradition bill colour revolution, Jimmy Lai's Apple Daily is the El Mercurio of Hong Kong. Unlike the official narrative of 'pro-establishment' and Chinese state propaganda media, Jimmy Lai and entire opposition camp are ''front line'' commands and soldiers not ''ultimate'' masterminds themselves at all.


As the result, their propaganda and coordinated bashing against Jimmy Lai and opposition are just helping ultimate masterminds behind them. In fact, ultimate masterminds are hiding in 'pro-establishment' camp and politically exploiting the title 'pro-establishment', this is a taboo for them. In fact, all actual structural changes, regime changes in Hong Kong were made by 'pro-establishment' not by opposition. The most notorious instance is that the ''brainwashing'' liberal studies course for eight universities which systematically designed by US agents who put in charge via 'pro-establishment' employers' association VISION 2047. This is why short-sightedly demonising HK opposition is a fatal wrong. It will obstruct any independent thought and in depth analysis. Both conspiracy theories and ''politicised'' FACTS are only harmful to the public on any matters.


The Chilean case provides us a historical model and insight on it.


''Full disclosure of the Track 1 documentation would show that ITT had indeed ''provoked'' its own expropriation by engaging in illicit and illegal intervention in internal Chilean politics. The corporation had approached the CIA in July 1970 and offered a secret ''election fund'' to support the conservative candidate Jorge Alessandri; it had conducted its own covert political operations inside Chile, among them passing funds to Alessandri through a secret channel provided by the CIA; ITT had urged the embassy to be more aggressive in blocking Allende, and conspired with CIA officials to destabilise the economy and ''stop Allende.'' After the elections, ITT officials had secretly funnelled tens of thousands of dollars into a secret Swiss bank account for El Mercurio as part of a covert CIA propaganda operation. But the Nixon administration's effort to cover up the scandal precluded sharing any information with OPIC; and officials feared that if denied its claim, ITT would ''turn on the USG (US government)'' and argue that its covert involvement in Chile was undertaken at official request. ''Our primary interests,'' as Assistant Secretary for Inter-American Affairs Charles Meyer wrote, ''are to avoid or to minimise disclosures that could severely compromise opposition forces in Chile and embarrass the administration.'' (1)


First, multinational corporations request embassy and US government for political interventions, then USG starts overt and covert involvement in targeted country. The government serves capitalists. The order and procedure are same on the Hong Kong matters. Although there are heads and tails of masterminds-beneficiaries witnessed by HK citizens during the anti extradition bill riots, the ITT of Hong Kong is still mysterious. Some may say it's NEXT DIGITAL. The classical Chilean case proved below:


(1) Regime change ops. are requested by multinational companies.

(2) Multinational companies themselves are engaging in their own covert political operations in their operating countries or regions. Thus multinational corporations especially in information technological field can be seen as private intelligence agencies. Such as so called US tech giants. Remember even ''local companies'' are multinational companies or tentacles of them.


Anyway, the ultimate masterminds behind the Hong Kong political theatre must be identified in order to root out them forever. There are key incidents to provide clues for identifying ultimate masterminds.

  1. Who did manipulate the stock price and speculate in trades of stock of Jimmy Lai's NEXT DIGITAL?

  2. Who will buy Jimmy Lai's industrial building?

  3. Who will buy properties of American Consulate General of Hong Kong & Macau?

  4. Who are systematically helping illegal refugees to Taiwan?

  5. Who are actual plotters of the July 21, 2019 Yuen Long riot?

  6. Who is lying about on.cc and the Hong Kong colour revolution? And how?

At least these six incidents and their recent updates can provide us clues toward ultimate masterminds yet social responses to these incidents are also equally important for holistic views and observation. We have to simply grab the points in order to avoid being brainwashed or misled by both local and international corporate or state run mainstream media.


FACTS


  1. On September 10, 2020, Hong Kong Police Force announced that 15 criminals behind speculation in stock price of NEXT DIGITAL during August 7 to 12, 2020 were arrested.

警方在今午4時公開案件的詳情,毒品調查科總警司鍾詠敏表示,在上月10日警方國安處人員拘捕黎智英以及壹傳媒幾位高級行政人員後,壹傳媒股票的交投量、股價出現極不尋常的波動,若比較8月7日與8月11日的單日成交額,上升幅度更超過4000倍。在上月10日至12日間,該15名被捕人士共買賣超過1.32萬次壹傳媒股份,涉及16.9億股,佔該段時間整個市場約23.8%的交投量,總共獲利逾3870萬港元。其中一名被捕人士更獲利約2550萬港元。


毒品調查科財富調查組警司鄒祥有指出,調查組早前收到投訴,懷疑涉事人員的資金來源有可疑,經調查後在今日採取行動,以涉嫌《串謀訛騙》及《處理犯罪得益》拘捕了15人、包括14男1女、年齡介乎22至53歲,其中5人為30歲以下的年輕人,部分人相識。


被捕人士當中有1人有三合會背景6人報稱無業,其餘報稱的職業分別有公務員、自僱人士、傳銷員、全職投資者等。據了解,該名公務員任職於消防處;另外有2人報稱全職投資者;有三合會背景的人為梁姓男子、獲益約70萬港元;而獲益最多的人姓黃、27歲。據悉,該15人各開設1個股票戶口,涉及9間不同證券行,涉案人士在3日內進行了逾1.3萬宗交易,涉及約15億港元款項。


鄒續稱,警方亦搜查了涉案人士的住所,檢獲電腦、電話、銀行文件等,亦凍結了相關人士的股票銀行戶口,涉及大概3000萬港元,被捕人現正被扣查,警方不排除會有更多人被捕。鄒指,調查顯示部分被捕人透過社交媒體溝通,疑以密集式股票交易,甚至在賣出股票的指令仍未被執行的情況下,以相同或更高的價錢買入相同數量的股票,製造虛假交投量,以推高整體交投額,營造股份交投熾熱假象,再引散戶入局,在股價高位散貨獲利。(2)


Unlike misconceptions of ordinary citizens who are misled by Hong Kong action flicks (bureaucratic propaganda in the form of entertainment), Narcotics Bureau is in charge of handling commercial crimes like this case. A ''WhatsApp'' group of speculators made total 38,700,000 HKD by coordinated repetitive sales and purchases for 13,200 times within three days. As the result, they artificially multiplied the stock price 4,000 times larger than before Jimmy Lai's arrest under the new national security law on August 10, 2020. Above cited information from police indicates several things below:


a. The use of ''WhatsApp'' means Hong Kong branch of Facebook=Instagram=WhatsApp have their full personal information and records of conversations in their platform. The politically biased censorship did not prevent their speculation. Facebook=Instagram=WhatsApp provided their criminal communication tool as they are allowing smuggling business of terrorist groups in their platform.


b. The age ranged from 22 to 53, which is similar to the Hong Kong Anti-Extradition Bill Movement, especially the blackshirts and white shirts on the July 21 Yuen Long riot. Even this resembles the political money laundering front organisation Spark Alliance (they arrested on December 19, 2019). Ranged from students to elders. Cross-generation is one of common features of those organisations. This is why we can't blindly blame brainwashed students and children.


c. ''Godfather in reality is just a criminal, and only will be a criminal. '' Hong Kong Police always do not name which mafia is involved in coordinated crimes. There are three major mafia groups in Hong Kong, such as Sun Yee On; Wo Shing Wo; 14K. In Hong Kong, the three major mafia groups are supported by anti-communist forces not CCP. Mafia is also called Triad societies in Chinese but its nature is no different from Japanese Yakuza. 14K and Sun Yee On are local official death squads of KMT-CIA of Taiwan after the 1949 liberation until today. In general, that is US who customarily uses local mafia as a death squad in foreign interventions globally. They are inappropriately decorated and referred as ''right wings''. Triad connections of both blackshirts and white shirts are confirmed by police during anti-extradition bill riots. For blackshirts, one of rioters, a 23 yo man whose surname, Liang on the July 14, 2019 riot at New Town Plaza in Sha Tin was confirmed as a mafia member but police still did not disclose the identity of mafia he belongs to.


該名梁姓男子被捕後,更被網民極速起底,稱他家住將軍澳,除了參與沙田新城市廣場圍毆警員,21日亦曾參與圍堵衝擊中聯辦,在上環衝擊警方;更指他有黑社會背景同販毒案底,與部分「泛民」議員相熟,又曾於2011年3月因參與示威被警方拘捕。(3)


For white shirts, it's easier to find information online due to search engine bias by US tech giants. It's turned out that the white shirts are basically not local indigenous inhabitants of Yuen Long but they are mafia members of traditionally KMT backed death squad 14K and others.


據悉,Ruby係7.21元朗恐襲白衣人頭目,而7.21元朗恐襲時一度誤傳是「飛天南」,後證實是黑社會14K頭目Ruby。據報,蕭奇標是Ruby的金主,兩人在不同場合照的相片均顯示Ruby與蕭奇標的關係不同尋常,而蕭奇標本人同時亦是茂名市政協常委、茂名同鄉會副主席、化州同鄉會理事長,該人工作證上印有其職務為「『中國東盟論壇』香港新聞中心副主任」。(4)


Although the Falun Gong's US media Epoch Times wants to link ''Ruby'' and his white shirts with Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the point of the news is that white shirts are from 14K. It's ridiculous to depict KMT's decade-long anti CCP death squad 14K as ''pro CCP'' thugs. Epoch Times did not properly mention what 14K is. This is a ''dirty war'' in HK.


d. Six of them are unemployed workers with no money for speculation in stock market. It means that this was money laundering by mafia. Those unemployed workers are obviously lured by mafia (it could be KMT-14K) via SNS to engage in money laundering for mysterious rich speculators behind them. And those real masterminds are still not arrested. Mysterious rich clients of money laundering can be identified via the mafia network. However Hong Kong Police Force will stop further investigation at the midpoint like another money laundering case Spark Alliance. ''Real masterminds'' are protected by the establishment. Thus both Spark Alliance members and NEXT DIGITAL ''WhatsApp'' speculators are not real masterminds at all.


e. Hong Kong SAR government is filled with infiltrators who are more loyal to vested interests than China because they were perfectly preserved from the British colonial Hong Kong without decolonisation. This is one of grave mistakes committed by politically immature mainlanders of the central government at that time. It still haunts the present. On this case, one firefighter was arrested as part of the speculation and money laundering. In fact, there were another firefighters got arrested as ''pro-DEMOCRACY'' rioters. One typical case is below:


33歲消防員方志雄,涉嫌於11月10日在旺角手持汽油彈,其後拒捕逃走並襲擊警員。方志雄被控一項襲警罪、一項抗拒警務人員罪及一項管有攻擊性武器罪;案情透露,方志雄當日涉嫌在旺角山東街與西洋菜南街交界襲擊及抗拒一名署理警長,並且涉嫌同日同地管有4支汽油彈、鐵筆、鐵錘及摺刀。(5)


A firefighter Fang Zhixiong assaulted police with Molotov cocktails, a hammer and knife at Mong Kok on November 10, 2019, and he got arrested. This firefighter is a typical infiltrator who enjoys high standard of social welfare as a public servant meanwhile acting as an anti China rioter. It's complete destruction of moral and self denial of the social duty of being a firefighter. There were numerous arrests of firefighters who committed riots or negligence of duty or sabotage of law enforcement during anti-extradition bill riots. Meanwhile we have to be resilient to overwhelming disinformation ops. against authorities or protesters made by irresponsible net media and mainstream media of Hong Kong.

2. After the arrest of August 10, 2020, Jimmy Lai tried to sell one of his properties like Tai Ping Industrial Centre Block I with 20% discount price 129,000,000HKD. Then real estate agents have been helping him to find a buyer however no real estate oligarchs are willing to purchase it under the extremely politicised situation. The reason is that anyone who purchases Jimmy Lai's properties will automatically reveal themselves as a mastermind or accomplice of Jimmy Lai in the narrow islands of real estate oligarchs. Oriental Daily has been following this whole process since then.


On August 12, 2020, Oriental Daily reported:


據市傳消息,黎牽頭持有的大埔太平工業中心全層,超過4萬方呎單位,近日委託代理暗盤放售,最新叫價更劈逾兩成至1.29億港元求售,反映其去貨套現心切。


面對虧損連年、業績持續惡化,壹傳媒早前連番變賣台灣物業,大股東黎智英亦將私人持的當地物業出售。周一(10日)黎智英被香港警方拘捕,據報正加緊賣產。近期多家地產代理接獲大埔太平工業中心1座19樓全層放盤,面積約41,570方呎,原先每方呎叫價4000港元,全層涉資約1.66億港元,近日突然將叫價大減至1.29億港元,每方呎叫價3100港元,劈價幅度達22%。經東網調查,該物業現時的業主為「公明織造廠」,其董事包括黎智英,以及現時身處海外、正被警方通緝的黎智英左右手Mark Simon


市場消息透露,該工廈鮮有全層單位放盤,一般面積約2000至近萬方呎單位,每方呎叫價由約4000港元至約5000港元。由於現時本港經濟轉差,項目近期交投亦轉靜。有物業投資者稱,地產代理主動推介該放盤,並建議買家大膽還價,反映賣方決心沽貨。


據土地註冊處資料,「公明織造廠」先後於1984年1月及3月,分別購入大埔太平工業中心1座19樓A、B及D室,涉及金額共418.43萬港元,其後於1988年4月,將該批單位以380萬港元,全數售予「兆景紡織」。「兆景紡織」當時擁有同層C室,連同購入的其餘3個單位,即持有19樓全層的業權。不過,「公明織造廠」於1999年3月,再以逾424.36萬港元買入該全層樓面。(6)


There is still no buyer for the property, Oriental Daily reported on September 9, 2020.


頻頻賣產套現「撲水」的黎智英,其牽頭持有的大埔太平工業中心全層早前委託代理暗盤放售,有人疑去貨心切,叫價更劈逾2成至1.29億港元,仍乏人問津。據悉,該物業現時的業主為「公明織造廠」,董事包括黎智英及Mark Simon。


上述放盤為大埔太平工業中心1座19樓全層,面積約41,570方呎,原先每方呎叫價4,000港元,全層涉資約1.66億港元,早前突然將叫價大減至1.29億港元,每方呎叫價3,100港元,劈價幅度達22%。該工廈鮮有全層單位放盤,一般面積約2,000至近萬方呎單位,每方呎叫價由約4,000至約5,000港元。由於現時香港經濟轉差,項目交投亦轉靜。


「公明織造廠」的股東是Comitex Holdings Limited及力高顧問有限公司,分別持有約102萬股及1股。按公司註冊處資料所示,截至去年12月,Comitex Holdings Limited股東包括黎智英,其持股比例最大,佔約87%。其次是前立法局議員張鑑泉遺產執行人,持股約11%。至於另外兩名股東羅彥康及紀志偉,則分別持股各不足1%。(7)


At least, it's politically obvious that purchasing his property under the circumstances will define themselves as a caretaker, a supporter, a financier or an accomplice even though they are not originally masterminds behind Jimmy Lai. The public attention on this case is extremely concentrated than any other cases of FREEDOM FIGHTERS. Thus, no masterminds will reveal themselves in this stupid way. Their use of front companies is even not safe on this.


3. After Trump canceled Hong Kong’s special status on June 30, 2020, then the largest anti-China spy base in Chinese territories, Consulate General of the United States in Hong Kong and Macau where the CIA Hong Kong station is based called for bidding on The Consulate General of The USA Quarters Block1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Besides this, CIA officers behind anti China operations are posing as ''consulate staffs'' and their telephone numbers are available online like any other countries they operate. It is not hard to find a clue on how they operate in Hong Kong. ''Pro-US'' mainstream media of UK, The Guardian reported the Snowden incident on June 9, 2013:


By 2007, the CIA stationed him with diplomatic cover in Geneva, Switzerland. His responsibility for maintaining computer network security meant he had clearance to access a wide array of classified documents.


"We have got a CIA station just up the road – the consulate here in Hong Kong – and I am sure they are going to be busy for the next week. And that is a concern I will live with for the rest of my life, however long that happens to be." (8)

Edward Snowden: the whistleblower behind the NSA surveillance revelations


The Snowden case can tell us more detailed information on the CIA activities in Hong Kong but this needs another specific report. For here, we got two points on this.


a. CIA case officers are posing as consulate / embassy staffs under the diplomatic cover and immunity as liaison persons for local authorities. Thus the management of Hong Kong Police Forces knows who they are.


b. Snowden did not disclose CIA black sites in Hong Kong yet he publicly confirmed the undeniable fact that the Hong Kong CIA station is in the consulate. It means that they live in their state owned luxury dormitories like the one in Shouson Hill Road, Shouson Peak, Deep Sea Bay. US got The Consulate General of The USA Quarters Block1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 in 1948.


Like Tai Ping Industrial Centre Block I, purchase of properties of ''enemies of the state'' will be inevitably reveal themselves as an accomplice or contact or mastermind. On this consulate case, The Consulate General of The USA Quarters Block1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, it revealed their local contact and accomplice of US anti China operations because US won't sell its overseas properties to random capitalists or unknown state actors recklessly. The best example is The Taipei Film House where original consulate general of the USA located until 1979. Then, the unused land of ex-US consulate general was revitalised and inaugurated on November 10, 2002 by the hands of ''pro-US'' the Department of Cultural Affairs and Taipei City Government not any others. They secured who would succeed their properties after 1979.


There was news that one of real estate oligarchs, Cheung Kong (Holdings) Limited wanted to buy The Consulate General of The USA Quarters Block1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 from US government which are worth for 2.5 billion HKD but they swiftly denied it.


RTHK reported it on September 10, 2020:


有傳長實投得有關物業,但長實向本台澄清,集團並非該物業買家


項目地盤面積近9.48萬平方呎,可重建面積近4.74萬平方呎,交易作價25.66億元,相等於每呎樓面地價為5.41萬元。項目可重建為海景豪宅獨立屋項目。


世邦魏理仕香港資本市場部資深董事王國偉表示,今次出售吸引不少本地及國際投資者關注。在市場波動下,交易價格符合市場預期,亦反映投資者對後市仍保持信心。


物業位於壽山村道37號,現為6幢低密度住宅物業提供26個單位及52個車位,另設室外游泳池。(9)


It means that Cheung Kong (Holdings) Limited was failed to buy it at the auction. Thus it did not deny their will and close ties with the US government. The official buyer of The Consulate General of The USA Quarters Block1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 was later confirmed. The call for bidding was handled by the US commercial real estate & investment company CBRE Group, Inc.. The buyer is ''pro-establishment'' developer Hang Lung Group which is led by American CEO Ronnie Chichung Chan.
