Chinese Christian dissidents hear Obama’s ‘silence’

Posted by Author on February 5, 2011


By Ben Birnbaum, The Washington Times, February 3, 2011-

Leading Chinese Christian dissidents blasted the Obama administration Thursday, saying it had done virtually nothing to advance the cause of religious freedom.

“For the past two years, in public it’s been almost dead silence,” said Bob Fu, founder and president of the China Aid Association, an international Chirstian human rights group.

He said private pleas to State Department officials to publicly mention names of jailed and “disappeared” Christian leaders had fallen on deaf ears. Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t Shoot the Pianist? Lang Lang, the Vice President of the All China Youth Federation

Posted by Author on January 30, 2011


By Jay Nordlinger, The National Review, Jan 29, 2011-

On Monday, I did a post on Lang Lang, and his performance at the White House — a performance that was, at least in part, a political and propaganda performance. The pianist played an anti-American propaganda song known throughout China. Hu Jintao and the other Communist bigs were visibly moved and delighted. All the “patriotic Chinese” were moved and delighted. (“Patriotic Chinese” is the Chinese Communist Party’s phrase for those loyal to it.)

In addition, I mentioned Lang Lang in a post yesterday.

For the past week or so, he has been on a PR campaign, proclaiming his innocence in the White House affair. “Gee, I had no idea that the song had any political or propaganda associations whatsoever. I just like the pretty lil’ tune.” As a result, I keep getting mail that says, “Lay off the sweet kid, would you? He just loves China, loves America, and loves music.” Read the rest of this entry »

The Associated Press begins daily transmissions of China’s state-run CCTV’s propaganda news feeds

Posted by Author on January 28, 2011


It’s reported by The Broadcast Engineering that state-run China Central Television (CCTV)’s News Content became available Jan. 1 on a daily basis via Associated Press Television Networks’ satellite network, the Global Video Wire (GVW). GVW reaches 90 percent of the world’s national and international broadcasters.

International press freedom organization, the Reporters Without Border , said in its 2005 special report  “Xinhua: the world’s biggest propaganda agency” that,  although the Chinese Communist Party’s Xinhua agency “is more and more regularly cited as a credible source” by western medias,  “Xinhua remains the voice of the sole party”, “particularly during the SARS epidemic, Xinhua has for last few months been putting out news reports embarrassing to the government, but they are designed to fool the international community, since they are not published in Chinese.” Read the rest of this entry »

Chinese Pianist Lang Lang Plays Anti-Americanism Propaganda Tune at White House State Dinner

Posted by Author on January 24, 2011


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.” Read the rest of this entry »

Praise in China for Lang Lang’s martial White House tune – from an anti-US war film

Posted by Author on January 23, 2011


AFP, Jan 23, 2011-

BEIJING — Chinese web users are acclaiming pianist Lang Lang’s choice of tune for a White House state dinner given in honour of President Hu Jintao — a patriotic theme song from an anti-US war film.

The 28-year-old Chinese virtuoso, who divides his time between China and the United States, has given no indication that he was aware of the nationalistic tinge to his choice at last Wednesday’s dinner entertainment.

But web users in China hailed Lang Lang as a true patriot for playing “My Motherland”, the theme of a famous 1956 Chinese film called “Battle on Shangganling Mountain” set during the Korean War. Read the rest of this entry »

A long time to wait for freedom- China

Posted by Author on January 21, 2011


When President Obama on Wednesday expressed the hope that “30 years from now, we will have seen further evolution” in China’s respect for human rights, I thought about Geng He, who had come to visit me the day before.

Geng He, 43, is a soft-spoken woman who doesn’t know whether her husband, Gao Zhisheng, is dead or alive. She knows that over the past five years, he has been repeatedly tortured by Chinese security agents. She knows that he was last seen nine months ago, when some of those agents spirited him away. She’s pretty sure that he has not been charged with a crime, but the government will not say where he is. Read the rest of this entry »

China’s President Gets His State Dinner, What Did Obama and America Get?

Posted by Author on January 21, 2011


By Stephen Yates,  FoxNews, January 21, 2011 –

The sun has set on Chinese President Hu Jintao’s long sought-after state visit to the United States. President Hu moves on to Chicago before returning to China, but he appears to have successfully navigated the main event in Washington.

President Hu came to Washington with relatively limited objectives. He wanted symbolism of a full state visit to demonstrate to others in China that he was able to command no less diplomatic deference from the U.S. than his predecessor received. He also aimed to blunt or avoid criticism of China’s performance on human rights, economic, and national security affairs. Beyond this he sought to make no meaningful concession or take on any added responsibility. Read the rest of this entry »

President Obama makes Hu Jintao look good on rights- The Washington Post Editorials

Posted by Author on January 20, 2011


THE MOST significant statements at the joint news conference of President Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao on Wednesday came in response to questions about human rights. Asked how China’s abuse of its own people affected relations between the two countries, one of the two leaders responded in a perfunctory manner, offered excuses for Beijing and concluded that disagreement on human rights “doesn’t prevent us from cooperating in these other critical areas.” The other forthrightly stated that “a lot still needs to be done in China in terms of human rights.” Disappointingly, that first speaker was Mr. Obama; the relatively honest statement came from Mr. Hu.

China rights activists hope Obama won’t disappoint

Posted by Author on January 20, 2011


WASHINGTON — The wife of missing Chinese human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng fought back tears Wednesday as she spoke of her children’s pain living without their father, who disappeared in April 2010.

Geng He said her daughter of 17 is depressed and her seven-year-old son asks where his father is and speaks of needing to keep up his Chinese so he can speak with him.

“Mr Obama, if you still remember the pain of the void you had growing up without your dad, maybe you can help my children reunite with their dad,” she pleaded, speaking through an interpreter. Read the rest of this entry »

The west needs to stand up to Beijing

Posted by Author on January 18, 2011


Mao Zedong once said that “all political power comes from the barrel of a gun”. Whether his apostolic successor President Hu Jintao, visiting President Barack Obama this week in Washington, believes this particular line in Mao’s catechism is unclear. Completely clear, however, is that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) not only believes it, but is implementing it.

Systematic expansion of China’s strategic nuclear weapons and delivery capabilities; rapid growth in submarine and blue-water naval forces; substantial investments in anti-access and area-denial weapons such as anti-carrier cruise missiles; fifth-generation fighter-bomber platforms; and sophisticated cyber-warfare techniques all testify to the PLA’s operational objectives.

Ten Things to Know about China as Hu Jintao Arrives in the United States

Posted by Author on January 18, 2011


NEW YORK— On the eve of Chinese leader Hu Jintao’s arrival in the United States for a state visit, the Falun Dafa Information Center urges the media, human rights groups, the American public, and especially, U.S. officials meeting with the delegation, to keep the following ten facts about China at the forefront of their minds.

  1. The Chinese Communist Party is engaged in a widespread, systematic campaign against tens of millions of innocent people.
  2. The Chinese Communist Party’s campaign involves a deliberate top-down strategy to use extraordinary levels of violence.
  3. Falun Gong practitioners are the largest group of prisoners of conscience in the world, numbering in the hundreds of thousands at any given time.
  4. Every three days, a new case of a Falun Gong practitioner dying from abuse in police custody is reported.
  5. The victims of these atrocities are people from every walk of life in Chinese society.
  6. Falun Gong practitioners are not the only victims; all Chinese people are affected.
  7. The Communist Party has gone to great efforts to cover-up and deflect attention from these crimes.
  8. A large-scale, grassroots Samizdat-like effort is informing Chinese people about persecution occurring in their neighborhoods, towns and cities.
  9. International public pressure does protect people in China.
  10. Communist Party officials have sought to expand the persecution of Falun Gong beyond China, including to the United States.

Why I Protested Hu Jintao at the White House- Former News Reporter’s Account

Posted by Author on January 17, 2011


By Wenyi Wang-

On April 20, 2006, I interrupted remarks by China’s paramount leader Hu Jintao at a press conference at the White House with a simple protest: I shouted and held up a banner.

In my protest I shouted two phrases in Chinese. I first shouted “Stop the persecution of Falun Gong.” I did so to try to stop an atrocity then unfolding in China. We had learned that the harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners in China was accelerating. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Author on January 16, 2011


NEW YORK—It was difficult finding tickets for the closing performance by Shen Yun Performing Arts New York Company at the Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater on Jan. 16. The performing arts company, which is now continuing on its tour, was well received, with a standing ovation and two curtain calls from the sold-out house.

“I was very proud to participate in the audience and to stand up and shout ‘encore!’” said author Judith Difonzo.

“I thought the performances were beautiful, I thought the colors were beautiful, I thought the dances were gorgeous. I was enthralled. I would come back again,” she said. Read the rest of this entry »

U.S. House Members Urge Obama to Raise Human Rights in Talks with Chinese President Hu

Posted by Author on January 15, 2011


(Midland, Tex – Jan. 15, 2011) Thirty-two members of Congress on Friday sent an open letter to President Obama urging him to raise China’s “egregious human rights record” in his talks next week with visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao. Meanwhile, Obama issued a presidential proclamation declaring Jan. 16 to be National Religious Freedom Day.

Also Friday, Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ) announced that ChinaAid founder and president Pastor Bob Fu would be joining other human rights crusaders and House members at a press conference next Tuesday to focus attention on China’s human rights abuses on the first day of Hu’s Jan. 18-21 visit.

China links to North Korean arms flights- weapons sent to Iran through Beijing airport- WIKILEAKS

Posted by Author on November 30, 2010


The Daily Telegraph, via Montreal Gazette, Nov. 29, 2010 –

North Korea has been secretly assisting Iran develop a weapons program under the auspices of the Chinese government, American officials believe.

The U.S. government has repeatedly asked the Chinese to stop shipments between the rogue states passing through Beijing airport, according to memos sent by both the U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, and her predecessor, Condoleezza Rice. Read the rest of this entry »

US knocks back China’s ‘PR’ talks call on North Korea

Posted by Author on November 30, 2010


AFP via Sydney Morning Herald, November 30, 2010 –

The White House has brushed aside China’s call for new six-nation talks on North Korea, saying it would amount to a “PR activity” unless Pyongyang changed its behaviour.

“The North Koreans need to demonstrate a seriousness of purpose in ending their aggressive behaviour,” spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters on Monday. Read the rest of this entry »

China’s Politburo Was Behind Google Hacking Incident, WikiLeaked Diplomatic Cables Confirms

Posted by Author on November 28, 2010


Details about the U.S. State Department cables obtained by WikiLeaks are starting to come out. Although WikiLeaks itself may be under a denial of service attack, it provided several newspapers around the world access to the raw documents it is preparing to release later today. The New York Times just posted it’s first article summarizing the contents of the cables and highlighting the most newsworthy ones.

Among the 251,287 U.S. diplomatic cables leaked by WikiLeaks, there is one set which deals with the massive computer attack on Google and other companies which was first revealed last January. At that time, Google went public with its contention that the attacks came from China, and linked those attacks to government censorship in explaining why Google was pulling out of China proper. They returned in a more limited way last summer. Read the rest of this entry »

Sensitive web traffic between U.S. government and military was “hijacked” to China, 15% of entire Internet traffic was re-routed: report

Posted by Author on November 17, 2010


By Alex Ogle (AFP) – WASHINGTON — Highly sensitive Internet traffic on US government and military websites was briefly “hijacked” and routed through Chinese servers earlier this year, a report to the US Congress said Wednesday.

For 18 minutes on April 8, a Chinese state-owned telecommunications firm rerouted email traffic to and from websites of the US Senate, the Department of Defense, along with “many others” including NASA and Department of Commerce, said the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission’s annual report.

Some 15 percent of the Internet’s entire traffic was routed through Chinese servers during this brief period in the late morning US time, said the report. Read the rest of this entry »

US report slams ‘highly discriminatory’ China trade barriers

Posted by Author on November 17, 2010


WASHINGTON (AFP) — China is following “highly discriminatory” economic practices that favor domestic trade over foreign imports, an effort that harms the US economy, a commission reported to the US Congress Wednesday.

“Under the guise of fostering ‘indigenous innovation’ in its economy, the government of China appears determined to exclude foreigners from bidding on government contracts at the central, provincial, and local levels,” said Dan Slane, chairman of the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

Panel urges renewed U.S. pressure on China on currency

Posted by Author on November 17, 2010


(Reuters) – The United States should name China a “currency manipulator” and take on trade-distorting Chinese policies in the World Trade Organization, a congressional advisory body said on Wednesday.

U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission Chairman Dan Slane said the report “reflects the commission’s conclusions that China has failed in some notable areas to fulfill the promises it made nine years ago when it joined the World Trade Organization.”

China’s “indigenous innovation” policies that require foreign investors to transfer technology to Chinese partners, and favoritism toward domestic firms, suggest “the Chinese government quite simply intends to wall off a majority of its economy from international competition,” he told reporters.

China Fired Missile Seen In Southern California, Pentagon and its embedded media covering up: Wayne Madsen

Posted by Author on November 11, 2010


Wayne Madsen Report, Via infowars.com, NOv. 10, 2010 –

China flexed its military muscle Monday evening in the skies west of Los Angeles when a Chinese Navy Jin class ballistic missile nuclear submarine, deployed secretly from its underground home base on the south coast of Hainan island, launched an intercontinental ballistic missile from international waters off the southern California coast. WMR’s intelligence sources in Asia, including Japan, say the belief by the military commands in Asia and the intelligence services is that the Chinese decided to demonstrate to the United States its capabilities on the eve of the G-20 Summit in Seoul and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Tokyo, where President Obama is scheduled to attend during his ten-day trip to Asia.

A fearful view of China

Posted by Author on October 29, 2010


By John Pomfret, Via The Washington Post, October 29, 2010 –

IN DETROIT It’s 2030 in Beijing. A professor addresses a class of students. “Why do great nations fail?” he asks. “The Ancient Greeks, the Roman Empire, the British Empire, and the United States of America.”

“They all make the same mistakes, turning their back on the principles that made them great,” he says, speaking in a high-tech lecture hall festooned with portraits of Mao Zedong.

“America tried to spend and tax itself out of a great recession. . . . Of course, we owned most of their debt,” he says with a chuckle, then turns more serious. “So now they work for us.”

The class erupts in self-satisfied snickers. Read the rest of this entry »
