|Since the Federal government decided ‘trade relations’ with China suited our ‘national interests’ what have we gotten:
-economic decline and a massive trade deficit
– Communist regime holding much of our nation’s debt
– a reduction of arms while China and Russia move in on our southern coasts
– a fall in U.S. stature in the world
– an ongoing decline in our own jobs and manufacturing
AND a flood of ‘cheap’ goods including:shoddy clothing,
tainted cosmetics and toiletries,
short-life products of too-often-harmful ingredients.
Does this sound like ‘smart’ international trade’ to you?
think when you shop and remember to read labels – while We the People
still hold in our own hands our consumer power.
This shameful display of publicly succumbing to our ‘debtor’ was Obama’s most damaging demonstration to date of a foreign relations policy that is either totally inept or intentionally designed to accelerate the decline of the U.S. status as the free world’s leader.
If you didn’t see this atrocious ‘joint news conference’ you probably heard how, in advance, it was touted a real ‘break-through’ by mainstream media – because China’s leader, Hu, was willing to participate. If you did see this farce in action, then you already understand why he did so. What dictator wouldn’t agree to stand by and watch the United States President praise the ways of their Communist nation?! Polished up for an American audience, the carefully controlled agenda aptly re-titled Hu China’s “President.” Hu is actually “Chairman of the State,” a position whose power is established in a “single candidate election” by the “Politiburo of the Communist Party of China.”
This contrived, internationally broadcast media display painted a fairy-tale picture – in Obama’s own words – of two friendly nations which share common interests and human rights values. But how did Hu respond to queries on Chinese human rights? First, he said that he didn’t hear the question. Next, he stated that question was directed not to him but to the U.S. President. Finally, he remarked that he could answer that question. Minor discrepancy: he never did so!
Economic indebtedness, trade imbalances and Chinese currency manipulation aside, what has our Chinese “partner nation” done to reduce nuclear threats by their “partner nations” of North Korea and Iran? Nothing we know of. In fact, China has built the world’s largest standing army and is rapidly increasing its military arms – while the U.S. simultaneously declines in these areas.
Worst of all, perhaps, turning to our common interests in human rights, China’s record in this area is recognized to have dramatically declined over the term it has been a U.S. economic partner. Standing policies ignored in this chummy press display include: government enforced mass-scale abortions; the murder of millions of female babies; national prohibition on parenting more than 1 child (which requires a state “coupon” of authorization first and results in fines many times greater than both parents salary if defied – unless you’re an insider with the regime. If ‘caught’ in time, the babies are simply torn from the womb.)
China’s official response to these issue at this event: Respect our policies and territorial rights. In other words, shut up and put up!
Irate human rights advocates nationwide are making quite clear that the U.S. President’s complicity in this joint staged propaganda piece has done more to damage human rights than any other event in recent history. China’s well-known and widespread permanent incarceration and systematic torture of protesters (all free speech or religious advocates) is yet another aspect of its stand on human rights. It’s made clear already that this White House welcome and State Dinner in Hu’s honor will be re-broadcast in China for a long time to come for the purpose of demoralizing current prisoners-of-state and discouraging others from protesting further!
The ultimate hypocrisy- and absolute disgrace to U.S. international image – is seeing world-wide photos of the prior Nobel Peace Prize winner smiling, side by side, with the fellow “world leader” who is currently jailing the more recent Peace Prize winner (while holding that protester’s wife under house arrest.)
If you’ve had enough of Obama’s abuse of the airwaves to demolish American values, show how you feel this Tuesday, January 25, when he goes on air for his 3rd strike this month – at brainwashing our nation.
