The U.S. has many laws on the books that deal with individuals and groups who give aid and comfort to America’s enemies. The purpose of this post is to demonstrate that China’s totalitarian government is an enemy of the United States. I believe it’s necessary to define the Chinese government as an enemy because under the guise of free trade, Trillions in investment capital, technology and hard assets have been transferred from the U.S. to China. This transfer of wealth subsidizes China’s totalitarian regime and makes the U.S. dependent on China for manufactured goods. As a result, we send Trillions of dollars to China to buy goods and then borrow that money from China to cover annual trade deficits.
Pat Mulloy is a member of the U.S./China Economic and Security Review Commission. He said trade deficits with China will result in large chunks of the U.S. economy being owned by a foreign government, and Chinese investments are not coming back to buy our goods, they’re coming back to buy America. He continued saying, since the US gave China MFN (Most Favored Nation status) in 1979, we’ve run 3 Trillion in trade deficits with China, and it’s interesting, China has about 3 Trillion in foreign currency reserves. Mulloy was clearly suggesting a correlation between China’s healthy cash position and US indebtedness. It’s not plausible to conclude that this redistribution of wealth, and resulting dependence on a Communist regime, are unintended consequences. If you watch the whole program that the previous clips are from, you’ll hear Derrick Scissors from the Heritage Foundation saying the U.S. should sell land and energy reserves to China’s Communist government.
Feb. 14, 2012, the Congressional Executive Commission on China held a hearing on human rights abuse in China. Rep. Smith said Americans need to become much more aware of the “systematic use of torture” in China, which is a “dictatorship” with “no due process of law”. Geng He testified about the three day torture of her husband, Gao Zhisheng, a prominent human rights lawyer. Li Jing testified about the persecution of her family and husband, a Chinese professor serving a ten year prison sentence because he peacefully advocated for democratic reforms. In the previous clip, Rep. Smith responded to Li Jing’s testimony saying China is holding “tens of thousands of political and religious prisoners”.
On the day of this hearing, Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping was in Washington DC. In the link below, Commission Chairman Frank Wolf said the Obama administration “rolled out the diplomatic red carpet” for Vice President Xi, but refused requests to meet with Geng He and Li Jing. Both of their husbands are Christians who were peacefully advocating for government reforms. Chairman Wolf also said China’s government has jailed many Catholic bishops and protestant pastors, and cited Chinese dissident Yu Jie who said “China is a greater threat than the Soviet Union ever was”. Yu Jie had been tortured and said America needs a strong leader like Ronald Reagan who will stand up to the Communist dictators.
Pastor Bob Fu also testified before the Commission. He and his wife fled to the U.S. after being imprisoned by the Chinese government. Pastor Fu lives in the U.S. and runs China Aid, an organization that helps Chinese dissidents. During President Obama’s trip to China, a group of Chinese lawyers heard Obama wanted to meet with them. Obama was at the U.S. Embassy and the lawyers were waiting outside. Pastor Fu was on the phone with Embassy officials who said they would get back to him, but 200 Chinese police arrested the lawyers and Obama went to the Great Wall. In this clip, Pastor Fu recounts these events and said Obama’s actions emboldened the Chinese dictators. The previous clip also has Rep. Smith saying Hillary Clinton ”threw dissidents under the bus” in exchange for peddling US debt and global warming issues. Pastor Fu said human rights abuse in China is the ”worst in two decades“ and Obama needs to support the persecuted, not the persecutors. Click on cecc.gov to watch the entire hearing.
Geng He said Chinese authorities mock her and say if she goes to the White House everyday, so what, they’re confident Obama will ignore their crimes. She also said Chinese dictators use the torture and disappearance of her husband to intimidate other Chinese human rights lawyers. The following link has Geng He’s previous comments and Rep. Wolf’s reply. Wolf said the Obama administration has failed to defend oppressed Christians in China, Egypt, Syria and Iraq, and “the Dalai Lama should know this administration has failed him, eleven Buddhist monks and nuns have set themselves aflame”.
China also supports the brutal Syrian regime and is engaged in ethnic genocide in Tibet, Burma, and China’s autonomous Xinjiang province. American citizens should also be concerned about Obama’s indifference to China’s brutal forced abortions. There aren’t enough wives for young Chinese men because 100 million girls have been killed by sex selection and forced abortion policies. Pastor Fu spoke of America’s struggle to end slavery. He said without the leadership of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, the first African American would not be in the White House today. Dr. King said ”injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” If we don’t stand up for the rights of oppressed people everywhere, we risk losing our Constitutional freedoms in America.
The Nuremberg war tribunals prosecuted Nazi leaders for war crimes. During the trials, forced abortions by the Nazi regime were found to be crimes against humanity. China’s communist government has forced tens of millions of abortions while bipartisan leaders look the other way. US leaders shield their Chinese counterparts from consequences for human rights abuse and unfair trade practices. They’re complicit in crimes against humanity and should be prosecuted alongside Chinese leaders. US media are also responsible for helping China’s dictators perpetrate crimes against humanity. Even the “liberal” media turns a blind eye to atrocities committed by the Chinese government. If you want to know where the bodies are buried, look behind issues that both left and right media support, i.e., the rise of China’s totalitarian regime.
During a Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the new US ambassador to China, some serious issues were raised. Senator Menendez said Taiwan needs F-16 fighter jets to counter the threat of China’s unprecedented military build up. He also said China continues to “share sensitive ballistic missile, chemical, and nuclear weapons technology with Iran”, and China has “inaugurated a missile plant in Iran.” Menendez concluded saying the U.S. has lost “48 billion dollars and 2 million jobs” due to Chinese intellectual property theft. And top executives at dozens of America’s largest companies were targeted by a Chinese government cyber attack. Senator Risch said Chinese companies are selling nuclear technology to Iran and North Korea, both state sponsors of terrorism. Senator Webb said China is facilitating trans-shipments of weapons from North Korea to Iran, Burma, the Congo, and other oppressive regimes.
Iran and North Korea are client states of China, which is using Iran to threaten America. Rep. Brad Sherman said North Korea is a “severe threat to U.S. security”, and even though it’s subsidized by China, US leaders “won’t interfere with one ship of [Chinese] tennis shoes coming into our ports”. Sherman also said Iran is the “number one State sponsor of terrorism”, and North Korea might “build ten bombs for themselves and put the eleventh on eBay”. He said US policy is “meek” regarding nuclear weapons in unstable hands and explained why nothing is done about China arming Iran and North Korea.
China could not be a threat without US support and Iran could not be a threat without Chinese support. On the day Chinese wives testified about torture, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta was welcoming Vice President Xi and the rise of China. During the Reagan administration, K.T. McFarlane was Deputy Secretary of Defense. While on Fox News, she acknowledged that China was arming Iran and North Korea and quoted China’s Defense Minister saying “in five years, militarily, China will be ready to take on all comers”. But McFarlane said ”we’ve got to be nice to them” because China holds so much US debt, and you “don’t pick a fight with your banker.” Rep. Sherman refuted that position saying those who claim we must be nice to our banker “favor cowtowing to China”, and corporate profits from “cancerous” trade policies cause US leaders to ignore North Korea and Iran’s nuclear proliferation.
On the day of the hearing into China’s human rights abuse, China’s Vice President described the US-China relationship as a “partnership”. America’s “partner”, China, was prepared to join with Iran and send warships to defend the Syrian regime if Obama had attacked Syria. The US/China partnership allows the respective governments to play both sides of global conflicts. Iran, North Korea and Syria are prime examples. The US gov’t classifies North Korea and Iran as state sponsors of terrorism. But China supplies Iran with chemical, ballistic and nuclear weapons, and allows trans-shipments of weapons from North Korea to Iran, which then supplies Hezbollah and Syria. US leaders condemn the actions of Iran, Syria and North Korea, meanwhile, they turn a blind eye to the fact that these regimes could not be a threat to the West without Chinese support.
In 1997, Congressman Randy Cunningham gave a speech criticizing President Clinton’s decision to cede authority of the Long Beach Naval base to Cosco, a Chinese State owned company, and linked Clinton’s decision to a $366,000 dollar donation to the DNC. He cites an FBI report saying Cosco is placing “spies in all their ports of call”, and said Clinton’s national security adviser was warned by China’s government, that U.S. interference in the Chinese-Taiwan relationship could result in a “devastating attack on Los Angeles”. This clip contains the previous comments and concludes with information about China’s takeover of the Panama Canal. Rep. Cunningham is not an eloquent speaker, but he provides documented evidence of China’s growing threat to U.S. national security. Click here to listen to his entire speech.
A few years after his speech about Cosco, Rep. Cunningham was convicted and imprisoned for taking bribes in exchange for awarding defense contracts. But in spite of compelling evidence demonstrating rampant waste, fraud and abuse involving military contracts, I can’t recall another politician who’s been convicted of a crime related to defense contracting. Maybe it’s just a coincidence the Justice Department targeted Cunningham, but I can’t recall another politician who openly opposed the treasonous US-China partnership, and implicated a U.S. President.
In the clip from his speech, Cunningham mentions China’s attempt to “bring Taipei to heel” (Taipei is the capital of Taiwan). Fourteen years later, Senator Menendez said American F-16′s must be sold to Taiwan as a defense against China’s “unprecedented military buildup”. First, China’s military buildup wouldn’t be possible without the Trillions of US investment capital that’s been driving fourteen years of double digit economic growth in China. Second, China’s military buildup is used to generate sales for US defense contractors. I do not believe these are the unintended consequences of US-China free trade policies.
The US-China partnership constitutes a globalized military industrial complex. For example, CNBC reported that Afghanistan is the “Saudi Arabia of lithium”, and Chinese State Owned Entities (SOE’s) have started mining in Afghanistan. Coincidentally, China manufactures lithium batteries that are used in electric cars. So it seems Afghanistan is our first war for “clean” energy, and American blood and treasure are subsidizing China’s booming manufacturing economy, which is powered by fossil fuels. Maybe that’s why most of Iraq’s oil is going to China. In his farewell speech to the nation, President Eisenhower warned Americans about the danger posed by the “military industrial complex”.
As indicated by this Wall Street Journal article titled “China’s Superior Economic Model”, many US leaders prefer China’s totalitarian economic model. China’s Vice President Xi described the US/China relationship as a “cooperative partnership“. Partners do not compete, they work together to achieve common goals. The fraudulent global warming agenda gives China a competitive advantage over America because China is not required to limit CO2 emissions. This is supported by the CEO of General Electric, Jeffrey Immelt, who called for Cap and Trade in the U.S. as a means to subsidize GE’s green energy projects. Then GE takes green energy technology, subsidized by U.S. taxpayers, to China. Given the massive redistribution of wealth from America to China, bankrupting our representative government by subsidizing China’s totalitarian regime appears to be the objective.
The notion that China is “competing” with the U.S. is ludicrous. That’s like saying an NFL team exempt from all the rules is competing with the rest of the league. For example, while China imports low cost U.S. coal to fuel its booming economy, Obama has kept his promise to bankrupt new U.S. coal plants. On March 27, 2012, the EPA implemented emission standards that effectively ban new coal plants. And in June 2013, Obama announced plans to limit CO2 emissions from existing coal plants. These dictatorial actions that cripple U.S. competitiveness, are being implemented even though Obama could not get his Cap and Trade bill passed. But even more outrageous is the fact that they’re based entirely on falsified climate data. Furthermore, if the NFL engaged in free trade and outsourcing, it would be comparable to trading a team’s franchise player for the competition’s water boy. The purpose of free trade and climate fraud is to give China’s totalitarian regime a competitive advantage over America. The solution is not requiring China to cap CO2 emissions, the solution is criminal prosecution of those perpetrating climate fraud. Check out the book Climategate and my post on climate fraud.
While “clean” energy mandates force U.S. citizens to subsidize expensive alternatives, China has partnered with Saudi Arabia and they’re building one of the world’s largest oil refinery’s. This partnership of fascist and communist regimes may collapse the U.S. dollar by circumventing a 1973 US/Saudi agreement to price oil in dollars. Pricing oil in currencies other than the dollar will lead to a steep decline in demand for dollars, and consequently, a decline in demand for US debt. This will further devalue the dollar and result in a potentially catastrophic rise of interest rates on US debt. The partnership is between the Saudi State owned company Aramco, and Chinese State owned Sinopec, both of which own critical U.S. energy infrastructure. Click here for info on the Saudi/China partnership. China is also using Iran to threaten U.S. energy security. President Obama said gasoline in America would go to $12.00 dollars per gallon if Iran closed the Strait of Hormuz. Obama’s comments on Iran begin at 2min/42sec into a speech at Dayton Ohio.
An Investors Business Daily article said “despite the commitment of nearly 20 Trillion in taxpayer funds to prevent another crisis, lending has stalled or shrunk”. But that’s only half the story. While on CNBC, billionaire leftist George Soros said EU and US banks are the largest supplier of credit to emerging markets. China is the largest emerging market, so bailed out US banks are financing communism while the U.S. economy is starved of capital and growth is stagnant. According to the Congressional Budget Office, it will cost taxpayers 8.6 Trillion to prop up US banks after the financial crisis. In spite of the U.S. taxpayers 20 Trillion dollar commitment to prop up banks and the stock market, some still say the US government’s unfair treatment of big business is driving investment to emerging markets. I guess they think bankrupting the U.S. government to subsidize socialist banks and corporations isn’t enough, we need to cut their tax rates as well.
The emerging markets are known as BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China). Charlie Rose discussed free trade and globalization with Jim O’Neill, Chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management. The show began with Mr. O’Neill taking credit for coining the term BRIC. Goldman’s CEO Lloyd Blankfein wanted to call emerging markets led by China CRIB, but O’Neill wanted the emerging markets represented by the term BRIC. The invisible hand of the market became visible shortly after 14min into the interview. That’s when Charlie Rose asked Jim O’Neill about the possibility of China’s bubble bursting. JIm said, “Some days I wake up and think, what have I created with this damn thing? I worry about that.” Goldman Sachs was instrumental in restructuring trade policy to favor Communist China. The times of referenced quotes are derived from placing the cursor on the timeline, not the number displayed at the end of the timeline.
Shortly after 29:45 O’Neill said, “In order for the world to progress, we have to let some things go to other people.” Charlie then alluded to the massive transfer of wealth from the U.S. to China and asked, “What are the political implications for all this, especially for this country which has been on top for so long?” Jim responded, “I’d like to hear President Obama say, how do we adjust before he says how do we compete”. Jim then referred to Obama’s economic adviser Larry Summers saying, “he understands [China's] relative advantage in international trade.” Free trade is designed to pick winners and losers in the global economy and Goldman Sachs picked America to lose. Because of their influence in Washington DC, Goldman Sachs is referred to as Government Sachs. Financial elites have achieved regulatory capture and subverted representative government.
Some say the electronic trinkets produced in China would be too expensive if manufactured in America. But virtual slave labor has always existed in foreign countries, and before free trade, America’s economy thrived without exploiting cheap labor abroad. Many leaders say government should be run more like a business. Well, multinational corporations spend billions implementing policies that PROTECT their market share and global competitiveness. They even engage in corporate espionage to gain competitive advantages that US leaders give away via free trade.
Businesses don’t engage in anything remotely resembling free trade. Why? Because providing the competition with capital and technology guarantees failure. Doing so would cause shareholders to demand criminal prosecution of the Board of Directors and top officers, which is what should be done to politicians who have intentionally traded away America’s economic future. Manufacturing is the engine of economic growth, so outsourcing manufacturing in exchange for cheap trinkets is like the Native Americans selling their sovereignty for beads and blankets.
American history teaches the concept of manifest destiny. But how many fur traders, homesteaders and gold miners were thinking about manifest destiny when they moved West? Few if any, they didn’t even know what the phrase meant. Manifest destiny is the language of ruling class elites, i.e. merchant bankers and industrialists. They moved common folk across the American West like pawns on a chess board. Ruling class elites wanted conflict with the Indians so they could call in the cavalry and manifest their destiny.
The new frontiers for today’s ruling class are Communist China and emerging markets. Free trade is preparing the way for the global cavalry and final phase of manifest destiny. For all intents and purposes, US financial elites, industrialists, and their political cronies, have seceded from the Union. They’ve allied themselves with China’s totalitarian regime and are engaged in economic terrorism against the United States. Media and politicians support this treasonous alliance and they exploit class and race divisions as part of a divide and conquer agenda. They want divided Americans to blame each other and fight over the economic crumbs left behind by free trade and the financial crisis. We’re all Indians now.
Wall Street has partnered up with China’s totalitarian regime and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which a Chinese political scientist says will create a “new world order” led by China and Russia. This UK Telegraph article says Saudi Arabia offered Russia a secret oil deal that would allow them to control global oil markets. George Soros also said China must be brought into a “new world order”, and the Chinese currency will replace the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. This will cause the fall of the Republic and support the rise of godless communism.
The Declaration of Independence ends with these words: “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor”. The founding fathers understood the price of freedom, and if we’re going to preserve the independent Republic they fought and died for, we must be willing to make some sacrifices. Socialist-communist advocates have been successful because they’re committed to community organizing. Those who believe in representative government and unalienable rights must do the same. The American Revolution could not have been successful without publications like Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense”, which helped build the ground swell of support necessary for the American Revolution. An interesting source is the book Godonomics, which illustrates the Biblical principles behind private property rights and market economies based on moral principles.
The US-China partnership is one example of treasonous actions by US leaders. Bipartisan leaders tolerate the Saudi State’s funding of a global network of Islamic extremism. This network produces an endless supply of violent Jihadists that are killing Americans. For some solutions, check out my post on the Boston Tea Party.
