Obama Grants Eminent Domain
Rights To China
The time for partisan bickering just
ended. This is as serious as a heart attack. Obama is going to spend
so much money, which he intends to get from China via the sale of
government backed bonds, that the Chinese apparently don't think he'll
be able to make good on them.
So President Obama
gave the Chinese eminent domain rights to American land and
businesses as collateral -- i.e., if we don't pay them their trillions, they now own American
The written agreement was brought to Beijing by Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton and was formalized and agreed-to during her recent trip
This means that in the event the US Government defaults
on its financial obligations to China, the Communist Government of China
permitted to physically take -- inside the USA -- land, buildings,
factories, perhaps even entire cities -- to satisfy the financial
obligations of the US government.
Put simply, Obama has now
actually mortgaged the physical land and property of all citizens and
businesses in the United States. He has given to a foreign power, their
Constitutional power to "take" all of our property, as actual collateral
for continued Chinese funding of US deficit spending and the continued
carrying of US national debt.
This is an unimaginable betrayal of
every man, woman and child in the USA.

Commie Obama Tee Shirts Banned In Beijing
With Obama's scheduled to visit Beijing on
Monday, city authorities have banned souvenir vendors from selling a
popular t-shirt depicting Obama as a Mao-era red guard,
reports Foreign Policy.
Since he was elected last year, the
T-shirt has had a ready market. According to some business owners,
they got calls last week from Beijing Municipal Government demanding
them to stop the sale of this kind of T-shirt immediately. And
inspection officers even came to stores to make sure the T-shirts are
off the shelf.
Business owners have been notified that after
Obama ends his visit to China, they can resume the sale.
and shirts depicting Obama as a communist aren't uncommon at anti-Obama
rallies in the U.S., but there's confusion about what exactly this shirt
means when a Chinese person wears it. Are they pro-Obama,
anti-Obama, or just all about the LOLs?
While the authorities are
anxious not to offend Obama on his high-profile visit, there's a
feeling that Obama's seen way more ridiculous images of himself if he's
ever looked out the window of his limo on Pennsylvania Avenue.

GM and the Treasury Department would not comment
Sunday on reports that the automaker is in talks with its current
partner in China, SAIC, about buying a stake in the Detroit company.
SAIC is owned by the Chinese government.
The Treasury Department,
in a statement issued late Friday, said investors in GM would be sought
across "multiple geographies," with a focus on North America.

Obama Tested On US-China Ties With Currency
says Barack Obama faces a deadline Friday that could test already
fragile U.S.-China relations. He must decide whether to accuse
Beijing formally of using its currency to gain unfair trade advantages
against the United States.
Labeling China a currency manipulator
would enrage the Chinese just as the Obama administration looks for the
Beijing government’s help on major global initiatives. Failing to
do so, or postponing a decision, also could damage Obama’s struggling
Democratic Party ahead of crucial congressional elections on Nov. 2.
Obama is under pressure to punish China for trade policies that U.S.
lawmakers say cost millions of U.S. manufacturing jobs. Many are
angry over a politically sensitive U.S. trade deficit with China that
has climbed to an all-time monthly high.
Friday’s deadline is
part of a congressional requirement for the Treasury Department to
prepare a twice-a-year report whether any countries are manipulating
The U.S. trade deficit with China rose 8.2
percent in August to an all-time high of $28 billion, surpassing the
record $27.9 billion set in October 2008. So far this year, the
U.S. deficit with China, the largest imbalance with any country, is
running 20.6 percent above the 2009 pace.

Chinese goods cheaper in the United States and U.S. products more

The administration, worried about high

after ministers from around the world left last week’s global finance

Mystery Contrail Was From Chinese Missile
Joseph Harrah contends the muted response was a
decision made by Obama himself.
Although the U.S. Defense
Department and North American Aerospace Defense Command have speculated
publicly that the unidentified contrail of a projectile soaring into the
skies off the California coast -- and recorded by a KCBS television crew
-- came from a jet and posed no security threat to the U.S., several
experts are raising provocative and disturbing questions about the
government's official response. (video)
Two governmental military experts with extensive experience working
with missiles and computer security systems have examined the television
video and conclude the mysterious contrail originating some 30 miles off
the coast near Los Angeles did not come from a jet -- but rather, they
say the exhaust and the billowing plume emanated from a single source
nozzle of a missile, probably made in China.
suggest the missile was fired from a submerged Chinese nuclear submarine
off America's coast, and point out that the timing of the alleged
Chinese missile shot coincided with an increasing confrontation between
the U.S. and China, and was likely meant to send a message to
Indeed, the Federal Aviation Administration
documents that there were no aircraft flying in the area at that time,
the night of Nov. 8. FAA Spokesman Ian Gregor released
"...The radar replayed did not reveal any
fast moving unidentified targets in that area."
So, according to the FAA, this, whatever it was,
wasn't even there!
"The question that still must be answered is
why NORAD's muted response was simply that North America was not
threatened, and later our government approved the lame excuse that the
picture recorded was simply an aircraft leaving a contrail," said
retired U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Jim Cash.
A former U.S. Air
Force fighter pilot and commander of an F-15 squadron and an F-16 wing,
Cash was assigned to NORAD as an assistant director of operations at the
Cheyenne Mountain complex near Colorado Springs, Colo., and is fully
knowledgeable of NORAD procedures.
"There is absolutely no doubt
that what was captured on video off the coast of California was a
missile launch, was clearly observed by NORAD, assessed by a four-star
general in minutes, and passed to the president immediately," he said.
Even more ominously, cautioned Cash: "We must question the
timing of this shot across our bow. The president was abroad being
diplomatic, which means trying to placate China which is becoming overly
concerned with our handling a totally out-of-control deficit in
There are comments in this report from Wayne Madsen. It is my
personal opinion that this guy is not a reliable source, but that would
not exclude the other experts' comments.
The government's late response is the contrail was caused by an
airplane, but the FAA's initial reports said there were no aircraft in
the area, 35 miles off the California coast, at the time.

fireball" look like an airplane to you? -- file under, "Who you

says Chinese Pianist Lang Lang played an anti-American composition
at White House (video).
Lang Lang the pianist says he chose it.
Chairman Hu Jintao recognized it as soon as he heard it. Patriotic
Chinese Internet users were delighted as soon as they saw the videos
online. Early morning TV viewers in China knew it would be played
an hour or two beforehand. At the White House State dinner on Jan.
19, about six minutes into his set, Lang Lang began tapping out a famous
anti-American propaganda melody from the Korean War: the theme song to
the movie "Battle on Shangganling Mountain."
The film depicts a
group of "People’s Volunteer Army" soldiers who are first hemmed in at Shanganling (or Triangle Hill) and then, when reinforcements arrive,
take up their rifles and counterattack the U.S. military "jackals."
The movie and the tune are widely known among Chinese, and the song
has been a leading piece of anti-American propaganda by the Chinese
Communist Party (CCP) for decades. CCP propaganda has always
referred to the Korean War as the "movement to resist America and help
[North] Korea." The message of the propaganda is that the United
States is an enemy -- in fighting in the Korean War the United States’
real goal was said to be to invade and conquer China. The victory
at Triangle Hill was promoted as a victory over imperialists.
song Lang Lang played describes how beautiful China is and then near the
end has this verse, "When friends are here, there is fine wine /But if
the jackal comes /What greets it is the hunting rifle." The
"jackal" in the song is the United States.
He then said, "I
thought to play 'My Motherland' because I think playing the tune at the
White House banquet can help us, as Chinese people, feel extremely proud
of ourselves and express our feelings through the song. I think
it’s especially good. Also, I like the tune in and of itself,
every time I hear it I feel extremely moved."
He expressed this
idea more frankly in a later blog post, writing: "Playing this song
praising China to heads of state from around the world seems to tell
them that our China is formidable, that our Chinese people are united; I
feel deeply honored and proud."
At the end of the attached video, you can see Obama (front row left,
aisle seat) applauding the Chinese insult.

Obama's Disarmament Is The Key To China's
Ben Johnson says if Americans were to judge
Barack Obama based on how he protects our country's interests and keeps
our nation safe, they would have to conclude either that he is blinded
by his ideology or that he favors our enemies. His insistence that
the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood have a seat at the table in the
post-Mubarak Egyptian government is the most recent, high-level reminder
of how this man hurts our allies and rewards our enemies. The
question Americans should parse is not whether Obama is motivated by
idealism or antagonism -- the results are essentially the same.
Instead, they must ask how they can stop his encroachments on their
liberties, their wealth, and their security before disaster strikes.
Radio talk show host Tammy Bruce has asked if Obama's foreign policy of
empowering Islamic fundamentalists is impeachable.
all of Obama's policies consist in helping our enemies. Many of
his policies undermine our security and leave Americans weaker.
Perhaps the most unexplored of these is Obama's obsession with nuclear
disarmament. Obama told the United Nations in the fall of 2009,
"we must stop the spread of nuclear weapons, and seek the goal of a
world without them." The previous April, Obama told an audience in
Prague, "the United States will take concrete steps towards a world
without nuclear weapons." He appointed Ellen Tauscher, a
congresswoman dedicated to unilateral disarmament, as his Undersecretary
of State for Arms Control and International Security. In February
2009, Tauscher told the Munich Security Conference:
The U.S. would, without question, be more
secure in a world free of nuclear weapons. The real question
is whether pursuit of such a goal is in our security interests.
I believe it is.
To further this agenda, Obama abandoned our
nation's promise to provide Poland and the Czech Republic with the
missile defense system we had pledged to them -- in order to cut our
nuclear arsenal with the New START Treaty. Although he tried to
push it through the lame duck session of Congress, Republicans pushed it
into the new year. (Sen. Richard Lugar, R-IN, this weekend told
the Tea Party to drop dead; he was voting for it. No wonder MSNBC
once referred to Lugar as "Barack Obama's Favorite Republican.")
Such Pollyanna notions as complete, unilateral nuclear disarmament (and
its domestic counterpart, gun control) would be misguided under any
realistic circumstances. In a dangerous world, where a
debt-riddled American decline threatens to permanently yield to rising
Chinese power, it is perilous.

bonds reached $1.16 trillion at the end of December, almost $270 billion

foreigners, the Treasury said.
The figures came as the US
government recalculated its data on foreign holdings of US securities
from June 2010.
Chinese-held Treasuries have fallen since hitting
a high of $1.18 trillion in October, under the revised figures. Japan

President Of China?
says that according to The New York Times, March 11, 2011:
"Mr. Obama has told people that it would be
so much easier to be the president of China. As one official

Mr. Obama is right.
If you're president of
China, people around the world who are fighting for freedom don't really
expect you to help. If you're president of China, you don't have
to put up with annoying off-year congressional elections, and then
negotiate your budget with a bunch of gun-and-religion-clinging
congressmen and senators. If you're president of China, you can
fund your national public radio to your heart's content. And if
you're president of China, when you host a conference on bullying in
schools, people take you seriously.
Unfortunately for him and us,
Barack Obama is president of the United States. That job brings
with it certain special responsibilities. It's a tough job --
maybe tougher than being president of China. But Barack Obama ran
for president of the United States. Maybe he should start behaving
Not a chance!
Another Obama "Success" Story
is reporting that in the wake of the US raid in Abbottabad that
killed Osama bin Laden, China has "warned in unequivocal terms that any
attack on Pakistan would be construed as an attack on China," a media
report claimed today.
The warning was formally conveyed by the
Chinese foreign minister at last week's China-US strategic dialogue and
economic talks in Washington, The News daily quoted diplomatic sources
as saying. China also advised the USA to "respect Pakistan's
sovereignty and solidarity," the report said.
Chinese Premier Wen
Jiabao informed his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani about the
matters taken up with the US during their formal talks at the Great Hall
of the People yesterday. The report said China "warned in
unequivocal terms that any attack on Pakistan would be construed as an
attack on China." The two premiers held a 45-minute one-on-one
meeting before beginning talks with their delegations.
Chinese leadership was "extremely forthcoming in assuring its
unprecedented support to Pakistan for its national cause and security"
and discussed all subjects of mutual interest with Gilani, the report
said. Gilani described Pakistan-China relations and friendship as
"unique." Talking to Pakistani journalists accompanying him, he
said that China had acknowledged his country's contribution and
sacrifices in the war against terrorism and supported its cause at the
international level. "China supported Pakistan's cause on its own
accord," Gilani said with reference to the Sino-US strategic dialogue
where the Chinese told the US that Pakistan should be helped and its
national honor respected. Gilani said China had asked the US to
improve its relations with Pakistan, keeping in view the present

policy and said it fully supported China on the issues of Taiwan and

electricity generation in Pakistan through various means, including
Wen announced that the Chinese leadership will
send a special envoy to Islamabad to express solidarity with Pakistan at
this "crucial period in its history." The envoy, a senior
minister, will take part in celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of
diplomatic ties between the two countries.
