Where did the oak tree post go. Was replying to it and the page refreshed now I dont see it.

Symbolism of the Mighty Oak
The Oak tree is one of the most loved trees in the world, and with good reason. It’s a symbol of strength, morale, resistance and knowledge. Throughout history, the Oak has been represented in different mythologies and sometimes linked to powerful gods (in Greek mythology it was a symbol of Zeus, the God of Thunder.) The oak is considered a cosmic storehouse of wisdom embodied in its towering strength. It grows slowly, but surely at its own rate. Oak is often associated with honor, nobility, and wisdom as well thanks to its size and longetivity. Oaks are known to easily surpass 300 years of age making it a powerful life-affirming symbol. “The oak is a living legend representing all that is true, wholesome, stable, and noble.”

China in the rear view mirror
Elliott Is First Major Fund To Flee Hong Kong After Its China Annexation

BY TYLER DURDEN
TUESDAY, JAN 19, 2021 - 17:30
With China having effectively taken over Hong Kong without the bought and paid for Western media as much as uttering a peep (compare China's annexation of Hong Kong to the "democratic media" reaction to Russia's takeover of Crimea) and crushing any semblance of even optical independence, it was only a matter of time before western financial companies left with no intention of ever coming back. Today, that's precisely what happened when one of the most respected hedge funds in the world, led by noted conservative billionaire Paul Singer, Elliott Management announced that it was closing its Hong Kong office, becoming one of the first large financial institutions to shutter operations in the territory since it entered a period of civil unrest and political tension in 2019. And now that the example has been set, we expect a veritable exodus of western financial firms out of the now defacto annexed territory.
Elliott, which was founded in 1977 and has had a presence in Hong Kong for 15 years, said It would move staff based in Hong Kong to its offices in London and Tokyo, which will become its only base in Asia.
As the FT first reported, a memo sent to investors said: “Consistent with Elliott’s longer term planning processes, we will be closing down trading and investment activities in the Hong Kong office and, effective January 1, 2021, transferring principal responsibility for existing Asian (ex-Japan) investment positions and for new situational trading and investments in Asia to the London office.”
Elliott's departure comes six months after China effectively annexed Hong Kong amid an unprecedented lack of condemnation by the free, independent and bought by China press, when Beijing imposed national security laws on Hong Kong, increasing its power over the territory.

Elliott is just the first: the Financial Times said it had contacted other funds which described plans to shift individual staff or parts of their operations to other cities in Asia, citing concerns that the business environment in Hong Kong is becoming increasingly unpredictable
The new Chinese regime in Hong Kong, which targets subversion of state power or “interference” by foreign countries, has raised concerns about Hong Kong’s future as a global financial centre. This includes fears the clampdown could lead to a flight of capital and talent to rival Asian business hubs in Singapore and Tokyo.

China Committing Genocide in Xinjiang; Building Authoritarian Bloc—USCIRF’s Gary Bauer, James Carr (48 min 03 sec):


Published on Jan 23, 2021 by American Thought Leaders - The Epoch Times​
“What the Chinese communists are doing is trying to eliminate a whole people,” says Commissioner Gary Bauer of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.​
The U.S. government, in the last full day of the Trump presidency, determined that the People’s Republic of China, under the control of the Chinese Communist Party, is committing genocide against the Uyghur people.​
Beyond mass imprisonment and forced sterilizations of Uyghurs, the Chinese regime is persecuting Tibetan Buddhists, Falun Gong practitioners, and Christians for their religious beliefs. In churches, artistic renderings of Jesus are being replaced with images of Chinese leader Xi Jinping.​
And the Chinese Communist Party is seeking to expand its repressive model abroad. It may soon be able to “create an authoritarian bloc around the world, a group of countries depending on Chinese technology, Chinese financial assistance, perhaps Chinese military help,” says Commissioner Bauer.​
“That authoritarian bloc of dictators, despots, and countries like communist China...could become a major rival to the Western democracies,” he added.​
In this episode, we sit down with Commissioners Gary Bauer and James Carr of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.​
This is American Thought Leaders, and I’m Jan Jekielek.​

Yuri Bezmenov Full Interview & Lecture - HQ (2:51:35)
Published on Mar 20, 2017 by ››› Oaken Embers Memoryhole

Yuri Bezmenov's full lecture given in LA in 1983. I have cleaned up the audio and filtered the video. But you can't polish a turd.

Introduction: 0:00
Slide-Show Presentation: 32:33
Subversion Lecture: 1:33:08
Audience Q&A: 2:36:09

Yuri Bezmenov worked as a "journalist" for Novosti Press Agency, which was a disinformation and propaganda agency controlled by the Soviet non-military intelligence agency (commonly known as the KGB). The Soviets called their disinformation work through Novosti "active measures," though Schuman uses the phrase "ideological subversion" to describe the activity of Novosti. Actually, "ideological subversion" was more of a term used by Soviet and Soviet-bloc propaganda to characterize the supposed actions of the West to undermine socialist and Communist ideology within the Soviet Union.

In the fifties and sixties, the Soviets and their allies began to use more creative means to mislead and misinform the West and the Third World, creating a cumulative effect that would in the long term be favorable to the Soviet Union. Novosti Press Agency was an overt and legitimate organization that published articles and books mainly for the West. It was ostensibly independent of the government, but we now know that this is a ridiculous claim. Most people assumed (and observed) that Novosti's work was somewhat propagandist, but until Bezmenov many did not realize the extent to which Novosti worked closely with the KGB to produce disinformation and mislead foreign governments and organizations, to the extent that Novosti's goals were quite simply the KGB's goals.

Looking back, many people might think that no one really took Novosti seriously. This is not the case. Western journalists and newspapers treated Novosti as a legitimate source of news and opinion. Papers like The New York Times used Novosti press releases just as they would the press releases of the AP, Reuters, AFP, or Groupe Presse. Novosti publications like the magazine Soviet Life and various books and travelogues were widely available in the United States and throughout the world and treated for the most part as honest, legitimate publications. Many of these publications can be found simply by searching Amazon for "Novosti Press Agency."

LOL! Well, I started this thread because of Kyle Bass. He has been (God bless him) yelling about the CCP for a very long time. I was posting his Twitter posts but then I added other posts about China and it eventually just became a place to post anything related to the damn Chinese Communist Party.
