Hong Kong protests force airport shut down


WEEKS, CERTAINLY THAT IS THE FOCUS NOW. TODAY, THE ONGOING FOCUS WITH THE CHAOS IN ON KONG WHERE THOUSANDS OF PROTESTERS CLOSED AIRPORT, CAUSING THOUSANDS OF FLIGHTS TO BE CANCELED. WE HAVE STEVE WHO SISSITS ON THE CHINA U.S. COMMUNICATIONS. HOW LONG DO YOU THINK THE CHINESE AUTHORITIES WILL LEAVE THAT SHUT?>>I THINK THEY’RE LEAVING IN THE HANDS OF THE HONG KONG AUTHORITIES TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO. THEY’RE PUTTING PRESSURE SAYING THIS CAN’T GO ON. THE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES CLOSING THE AIRPORT IS CATASTROPHIC. NOT JUST CATASTROPHIC IN THE SHORT TERM, MISSING PLANS AND MEETINGS, BUT LONG TERM, THINK ABOUT THE MULTINATIONALS HEADQUARTERED IN HONG KONG, ARE THEY THINKING SHOULD THEY MOVE TO SINGAPORE, MOVE TO TAIWAN, MOVE TO TOKYO? IT IS REALLY BOOED FOR HONG KONG IN THE LONG TERM. WHAT I HOPE THE DEMONSTRATORS UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS GOING TO CAUSE HONG KONG TO DETERIORATE IN THE LONG TERM. DAVID: I HOPE WHAT CHINA UNDERSTANDS, IF THEY GET, I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE SOME PLO, PLA FORCES NOW.>>THEY ARE GARRISONED. DAVID: PEOPLES LIBERATION ARMY IN HONG KONG. IF THEY REALLY BRING A FORCE OF PLA ARMY TROOPS OVER INTO HONG KONG AND DO THERE, WHAT HAPPENED IN TIANAMEN I DON’T THINK CHINA WOULD BE THE SAME FOR DECADES.>>NO. I DON’T THINK THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. FOR STARTERS, THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF FAKE NEWS ABOUT THE PLA MASSING TROOPS ON THE HONG KONG BORDER. IT IS, NUMBER ONE IT IS THE POLICE, MINISTRY OF PUBLIC SECURITY THAT HAVE EXERCISES IN SHENZHEN, THE AREAS THAT BORDER HONG KONG. WHAT THEY’RE DOING SENDING A MESSAGE TO THE DEMONSTRATORS WE HAVE THIS CAPABILITY. THEY ARE NOT, THEY ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT USING IT AND I WOULD BE SHOCKED IF THEY DID. THE SITUATION WOULD HAVE TO DETERIORATE IMMENSELY FOR CHINA TO MAKE THAT DECISION. FOR THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT TO INVITE THE PLA. NOW THE PLA IS GARRISONED IN THE OLD BRITISH — DAVID: HOW MANY TROOPS ARE THERE.>>NOT MANY. NOT MANY. DAVID: COUPLE THOUSAND?>>I THINK SO. I DON’T KNOW THE EXACT NUMBER OF. DAVID: IF YOU’RE WRONG, GOD FORBID, THE PLA COMES, IS THAT THE END OF OUR RELATIONS WITH CHINA FOR THE NEAR FUTURE.>>I JUST DON’T THINK IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. DAVID: YOU DON’T WANT TO GO THERE?>>I CAN’T IMAGINE IT T WOULD BE SUCH A TERRIBLE DECISION BY THE GOVERNMENT OF HONG KONG. BY THE GOVERNMENT AND MAIN LAND. THEY HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO DEAL WITH THE DEMONSTRATORS. WHAT THEY NEED TO BUILD IS A CONSENSUS ON HOW THEY SHOULD GO FORWARD. DAVID: RIGHT.>>WHICH BASICALLY IS GOING TO BE, WITHDRAWN, THEY SAID THE BILL IS DEAD. CARRIE LAM THE ARGUMENT IS WITHDRAWN OR DEAD. WHAT IS REALLY THE DIFFERENCE? THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE SHOULD SAY IT IS WITHDRAWN. THE OTHER IS, THEY NEED AN INDEPENDENT TEAM TO KIND OF EVALUATE WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE POLICE. DAVID: HARD TO FIND ANYBODY THERE RIGHT NOW.>>POLICE REVIEW BOARDS, WHICH WE HAVE IN THE UNITED STATES, WHICH ARE INDEPENDENT OF THE POLICE, SHOULD REVIEW WHAT HAS GONE ON. I THINK THAT IS A PATH FOR COMPROMISE. DAVID: STEVE, I WANT TO GET YOUR IMPRESSION WHAT IS HAPPENING IN RUSSIA. NOT ONLY HONG KONG WHERE YOU HAVE PRO-DEMOCRACY PROTESTS, YOU SEE IT IN RUSSIA TOO. THE DEMONSTRATIONS THERE ARE FOCUSING ON VERY SIMILAR THINGS ABOUT AN AUTOCRACY, CONTROLLING THE WAY THEY RUN THEIR GOVERNMENT. NOT ENOUGH FREEDOM IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR WHERE CERTAIN BIG GUYS GET SWEETHEART DEALS. BUT, NORMAL FOLKS DON’T. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS? THE FACT THAT THEY ARE IN RUSSIA, ALSO KIND OF PUSHING THESE PRO-WESTERN VALUES?>>I’M NOT RUSSIAN EXPERT BUT TO ME THE CONTRAST IS STRIKING. THE GENTLENESS WHICH THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT TREATS ITS PROTESTERS VERSUS THE HARSHNESS TREATS ITS PROTESTERS. DAVID: I HAVE TO PUSH BACK A LITTLE BIT. I HAVE SEEN VIDEO OVER THE WEEKEND OF VERY HARSH TREATMENT OF PROTESTERS IN HONG KONG. VERY HARSH TREATMENTS. PEOPLE GETTING BLOODIED AS A RESULT.>>WHAT THE POLICE FORCE ARE SAYING PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HURLING PETROL BOMBS. THEY HAVE BEEN HURLING BRICKS. DAVID: YOU CAN SEE THE VIDEOS. I WOULD NOT DEFEND SOME OF WHAT THE POLICE FORCE IS DOING IN HONG KONG.>>I THINK WE SHOULD HAVE AN INDEPENDENT BODY INVESTIGATE WHETHER THERE HAS BEEN POLICE — DAVID: WHO WOULD BE ON THAT BODY?>>YOU CAN FIND PEOPLE WHO ARE INDEPENDENT. THERE ARE CERTAINLY IS A HUGE BOTH ACADEMIC AND NGO COMMUNITY IN HONG KONG THAT IS PERFECTLY WILLING TO KIND OF BE OBJECTIVE IN OPINING WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE. IF THERE HAS BEEN BRUTALITY, IF THERE HAS BEEN UNAUTHORIZED USE OF FORCE. DAVID: NO QUESTION OF IF. IT HAS HAPPENED. THE ONLY QUESTION IF IT IS WIDESPREAD AS SOME PEOPLE SAY IT IS. THEY HAVE TO COME TO A CONCLUSION. WHAT I’M HOPING AND PRAYING, SOMEHOW THE TRADE NEGOTIATIONS WE’RE A PART OF CAN INDUCE BETTER BEHAVIOR ON THE PART OF THE CHINESE AUTHORITIES. DO YOU THINK THAT’S POSSIBLE?>>TRADE NEGOTIATIONS UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE OF THE FOUNDATIONAL MISTAKES IN OUR APPROACH MAKE IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR THE CHINESE TO COMPROMISE. FOCUS ON THE BILATERAL TRADE DEFICIT WHICH IS KIND OF A VIOLATION OF THE PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMICS 101. THE BRANDING OF CHINA AS A CURRENCY MANIPULATOR WHEN IN FACT THEY HAVE BEEN TRYING TO SUPPORT ITS CURRENCY MADE — DAVID: A LOT OF ECONOMISTS AS WELL AS ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS WOULD DIFFER WITH YOU.>>I DON’T THINK SO. I DON’T THINK SO. DAVID: WE HAVE HAD THEM ON AIR.>>I THINK THEY’RE MISS TATING THE CASE THAT ECONOMISTS WHO LOOK AT THIS FAIRLY WILL SAY THE CHINESE HAVE SPENT TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS PROPPING UP THEIR CURRENCY. IF YOU LOOK BACK 10-YEARS — DAVID: THEY SPENT A LOT OF TIME STEALING WHAT WE HAVE.>>THAT IS NOT A TRADE NEGOTIATION. DAVID: IT SHOULD BE.>>WE SHOULD BE MAKING REPRESENTATION WITH RESPECT TO

  1. Calm down folks. China won't covertly send troops or police there. There r many other ways they can still get involved like blending in with the HK police. It's easy since southern china speak the same dialect as HK folks.

  2. Americans need to stay out of Chinese land dispute. How did Hong Kong and Macau become European colonies?!?! The Chinese are going to take their land and there is nothing anyone can do about it. Taiwon is next….

  3. The sad thing is there is nothing we can do. We are in too deep with the Chinese. It will be interesting to see what happens.

  4. This steve orlins is get paid by communist China to speak like that ? Exactly the mouthpiece of communist china media 'peoples daily'

  5. If media were not watching, the Chinese Communist Party gang would have imprisoned millions of HK people, just like it has imprisoned 2 million Uyghur people in GIANT CONCENTRATION CAMPS.

  6. Listen to the fake news telling the people they should stop because it will hurt the economy that's the whole point that they're doing this is to bring attention the fake news media at it again.

  7. The guest is a disgrace. So unfortunate that many leftist globalists still occupy vital positions in the government, continue to bring damage to the US and the world. The host is speaking of the truth 👍

  8. I'm not believing this guy. The China government is moving into dire straights weather they like it or not. Desperate actions could explode for lack of being able to do anything else.

    He's defending the Chinese government. The Chinese government might not be able to wage war. But they are really good at killing millions of their own people.

  9. Are these guys on crack? Theyre talking about protesters damaging the economy while people are fighting to not be oppressed by a brutal authoritarian communist regime.

  10. The police sends undercover agents into the crowd and throw bricks and petrol bombs to their colleagues to make the crowd do the same thing

  11. Criticizing China an Russia while you are attacking the 2nd amendment. BTW protesters should be handled extremely harshly…they cost Hong Kong millions..who will pay for that???? You???

  12. HUMAN BEING ARE SHEEPS. DOESNT MATTER WHETHER WHERE YOU COME FROM . PEOPLE ONLY WANT TO HEAR WHAT SUIT THEM, FUNNY

  13. Since when Fox Network and this commie dude (Steve Orlins) run propaganda for Communist King Xi ? Money on the flesh and blood of "the people" ?!

  14. CHINA will do whatever is necessary to stop the protesting. However, HK is not Tienanmen Square!!! We should never have prevented Japan's "Unit 731" from their chemical attack on Beijing and other cities. The world have their jobs back and the business leaders responsible for sending jobs there would be "DELETED"!!!~

  15. Bunch of American paid protestors china needs to do the same and pay Americans to protest the separation the country is facing and terrorist immigration agenda by the terrorist in DC

  16. Get ready Hong Kong, your freedoms and liberties are going to taken away completely. People of Hong Kong hope you have an exit plan? Life as you know it will no longer exist.

  17. Who is this guy? Is he a communist or what? Stop supporting the worst human rights abuser on earth. People of Hongkong is fighting for their freedom and all you care about is money. He's an old fart so he must have known how we fought for our freedom in WWII and cold war against Soviet Union but by the way he talk he must have made a lot of money in the past 30 years of our yearly trade deficit with China.

  18. This interview makes me sick. Your looking at someone deeply invested in china or bought off by china. All money minded thoughts, no thoughts of human rights or democracy, doesn't even wanna touch the subject. (Communist puppet)

  19. They can't have an independent review of the police, because many mainland police have already been brought in to beat protesters. It's just like in Tiananmen where the local troops refused to mow down the students, so they brought in forces from further away.

  20. ah yes the irony, people protesting there for their own bill of rights including guns. They can't defend themselves against a tyrannical government. Just what our founders wanted to prevent by ensuring we could defend ourselves. Meanwhile here in the states leftists push for limited speech, and no guns. What a paradox. Check this out, only law abiding citizens would turn in their guns if required, and criminals don't obey laws, you do the math.

  21. This guy is either completely clueless…. or a Chinese shill.
    Even the foreign companies in HK support the people in this movement…. this new law China is trying to force through would impact them as much as local people.
    I don't think any of our involvement in the middle east and africa will have ANY positive impact there…. but I think taking out the CCP would have a positive impact in the long run in Asia.

  22. "The gentleness of HK police"… give me a break. This guy then goes on to say they were doing that in response to the throwing of petrol bombs. How does he know the beaten protesters were the ones hurling the bombs? How ubiquitous are molotov cocktails in relation to the police injuring the protesters? Who is this guy?

  23. Where does Fox find this Steve Orlins guy to masquerade as a China "expert"?! He knows diddly squat about China and Hong Kong. If he's on, basic journalistic standards require another person to present an opposing point of view.

  24. Where's the out for the people of Hong Kong? Imagine knowing China is going to swallow you up in a few years.

  25. "The Great Awakening!"
    wwg1wga!
    Its a World Brotherhood thing!
    Europe, Middle East, Asia…
    Make no mistake, the US has led the charge and absolutely cannot allow momentum to slow down.

  26. Why did the Hong kongers join with communist Chinese if they don't like the communist  Chinese evils at the first place?

  27. Definitely sounds like he is on China’s payroll! Do you really think the Hong Kong police are not really a part of and trained by the Chinese military?

  28. This is unbelievable, if such disruption and violence happened in the the US, the police would crash it in no time.

  29. you Americans dont understand…stop lying about HK…the people of HK are right….remove the HK CEO and everthing will be ok.

  30. I don't think anybody will be surprised if mainland China moves in military to take control of Hong Kong.
    Nobody except this guy !!

  31. This is why people need "assault weapons". They're going to have to shoot their way out of the mess England put them in.

  32. He is objective. When people don’t hear what they want to hear, they just brushed off the guy who actually did an objective analysis.

  33. I think HK police are too gentle and that’s what fuel the violent protesters further. Had it happen in anywhere in US, police would have open fires w real bullets and killed many protesters.

  34. Hey HK government! Do you expect this to end by doing nothing? Insanity is expecting a different result by doing the same thing again and again.

  35. Against communist!!! Communist government has all the money and power!!! Not little people.. They are risking their lives and livelihoods to protect their free speech and individual rights…protection against dictator gigantic communist China…
    how long have they protest peaceful? Nothing really happened!!! These protesters are small people… no money, no power.. they are fighting with everything they got.. they are the heroes…so many goy arrested.. jailed time is something like 20 years… Academia has been corrupted more than corporations .. they got gov regulations and funds…

  36. This guy is talking as if the COMMUNIST Chinese Gov't. that now controls Hong Kong would be open to oversight. He's dreaming

  37. This is a contagion…and it's going to spread with far reaching socio-economic affects…whether the primitive governments and global financial system are ready for it or not. Humanity is shedding it's skin. Welcome to the new paradigm✨🙏✨

  38. Absolutely outrageous that Orlin's puts economic and multi-nationals as the main concern in this and that you refer to HK able to 'deal' with these demonstrators.
    They want the bill withdrawn, not shelved, "What's the difference", you're being tricky.
    At least the Fox presenter pulled him up on the police brutality. Any person of conscience would be deeply moved after seeing that poor girl shot in the eye.
    People like Orlin's know very well what's going on but money is their God and pander the evil communist regime.

  39. Donald is using Hong Kong as his castle on the chess board game of Trade War with Mainland China.China is plying with money as well as human rights ! Double vammy !

  40. I don’t what’s the point of protesting here, you’re already returned to China, you will only enjoy at most 20 years of your automacy, if you don’t like the fact that you will be part of China, then go for us for asylum, US will welcome every single one of you

  41. The so call western medias pay more attention to Hongkong crisis rather than in Kashmir atrocities committed by Indian army. How bias the medias are.

  42. so is okay for the mob to use force on everyone in hk the government offcials and police. BUT IS NOT OKAY FOR POLICE TO DO THEIR JOBS TO ARREST THE MOBSTERS????

  43. those 2 guys certainly didn't know what is going on in Hong Kong right now. They are like talking about a comedy they just watched yesterday whiling having some coffee.
    Those is nearly a terrorist attack, not a protest as your video edited. Those young "protesters" are holding weapons and chemistry to hurt ladies, kids, all the strangers in public. buildings, equipments, greens, and even hurt policeman. Could you media stop insanely focusing on "What China would do? what China would think? What China would learn from xxx", this is not even the case that China can learn anything from this illegal terribly rude "protest". but Is : what are you guys really looking for since you mislead everyone by using your media power?

  44. The People of Hong Kong understand the Threat China represents to their GOD Given Rights to be FREE from the Tyranny of a Communist Dictatorship!!  How is this ANY Different than the 13 American Colonies who wanted FREEDOM for the TYRANNY of the Dictatorship of the Royal Crown of Britain??  Hong Kong's Fight for Freedom has Just Begun!!  In the END, We The People of Hong Kong WILL WIN!!   Steve Orlins is a Shill for Tyranny and China's Communist Dictatorship!!  Treasonous  Words from a Man Who Has Freedom!!

  45. I think all parties have its own interest and what we should do is to balance this rather than blame on each other.
