Hong Kong's Elections: Opposition's Nathan Law Backed by US

Hong Kong held legislative elections this week with one of the leaders of the so-called "Umbrella Movement" also known as "Occupy Central" apparently winning a constituency seat. The BBC in an article titled, "Hong Kong election: Anti-China activists set to take LegCo seats," would report:

A new generation of anti-China activists have won seats on Hong Kong's Legislative Council (LegCo), preliminary results indicate.

Among them is Nathan Law, one of the young leaders of the mass pro-democracy demonstrations of 2014, who is now on course to win a constituency seat.

It is the first taste of real political power for the young protest leaders.

But pro-Beijing politicians will retain a majority of seats, partly because of the electoral system.

What the BBC neglects to inform readers is that while it claims the opposition failed to do better because of a pro-Beijing electoral system, the opposition itself exists solely because of Western backing.

"White Helmet" "Save Aleppo" Protest Proves How Easy it is to Dress Up Actors as "War Victims"

October 3, 2016 (Tony Cartalucci - LD) - Recent protests held across North America and Europe staged by supporters of armed militants in Syria have staged scenes in Western streets eerily similar to those featured in the photos and videos of the US-European funded "Syrian Civil Defence" also known as the "White Helmets."

Saudi state media, Al Arabiya English would report in an October 1, 2016 article titled, "Worldwide protest against Assad, Russia to ‘save Aleppo’," that:
The stalling talks between international powers on Syria - with Russia ramping up its air raid campaign - has ignited worldwide protests calling for an end to the horror in Aleppo.

Battles erupt in south Aleppo as Syrian Army attempts to advance in strategic district

Aleppo, Syria (4:54 A.M.) - On the evening of the 3rd of October, the Syrian Arab Army supported by allied militias launched a massive offensive in southern Aleppo.

The large-scale assault primarily targeted the district of Sheikh Sa'eed and the missile base of Khan Touman. Heavy clashes are reportedly ongoing as the Syrian Army attempts to gain a foothold in both regions.

Securing a presence in Sheikh Sa'eed will be especially hard for the government forces as there's a vast exposed space around the embattled neighborhood. Such a feat would place rebel positions in Al-Sukkari at grave danger while enabling Syrian troops to access several other east Aleppo districts previously inaccessible to them.


All the while, the Russian Air Force is pummeling the jihadist rebels' supply lines in both the city and its southern countryside. Both the Syrian and Russian governments seem exceedingly intent on expelling the insurgent presence from the nation's industrial capital in the…
