Susan Rice Steps In It

Let me rephrase that: Susan Rice has become a victim of Obama Leftology

(I should define Leftology as the radical politics rampant today, most exemplified by Obama’s anti-American rhetoric.)

A few weeks ago, former National Security Advisor and Ambassador under Obama, Susan Rice, had a rival exchange on Twitter with a Chinese diplomat. It proved revealing.

It showed how the Chinese argue and critique America with the same rhetoric they see in leftsrtream press and media in the US. We have long been saying Leftists only provide fodder to America’s critics and enemies.

He (Diplomat-apologist-defender of China, Lijian Zhao) tried to unload that rhetorical hubris at Susan Rice. She seemed baffled by it, but I don’t know why she would be?

That is how leftists themselves argue. Racist accusations – should we say pleasantries – were exchanged between them. Then Rice dropped the line that ‘he should be sent back’ or recalled to China. What Rice didn’t know is he was not based in DC but in Pakistan.

That doesn’t really matter for the purposes of argument. Rice was stirred. She was trying to talk about humanitarian woes of Musllim Uighurs held in northern China. He rattled off a list of conditions in US, including DC. His tweets have since been deleted.

My guess is she didn’t realize that all this division, escalated under Obama, and constant liberal media, just fed his nasty response on our country. They are only taking the press’s critique and hurling it back at America. She should have been better prepared for that.

Rice shifted, after calling him a racist, to address the Chinese Ambassador: “I expect better of you and your team. Please do the right thing and send him home.”

But it did demonstrate Rice’s abilities and reactionary Leftist rhetoric.
She is out hawking a new book. And as Forbes said regarding social media:

Tangent: Although Twitter, like other Western social media platforms, is banned in China, diplomats use the platform abroad and have amassed some large followings as a result. Zhao, for example, gained over 190,000 followers over the three years he’s had a Twitter account.

And: https://www.forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2019/07/15/ex-national-security-adviser-rice-calls-chinese-diplomat-racist-for-tirade/#4397ecc45dbe

Besides Rice and race, China is a much larger concern for discussion. Certainly much broader and more important than the Uighurs issue. But that’s all Leftinista’s care about.

It spans Hong Kong, the China Sea and Taiwan, as well as all the economic disparities. Though Rice touches none of that, probably as a matter of choice. Obama’s administration didn’t touch the major issues with China in eight years. Why would she start now?

After all, Obama gave us the national policy of Omission (among others). He ignored the biggest and most dangerous threats to America, while placating his apologist base of anti-American zealots — both political and religious.

Instead, he lent his voice to give aid and comfort to enemies of America. That it now comes full circle in Susan Rice’s tweets is ironic. Rice and Obama demonstrated incompetence in government for eight years, now she illustrates it on Twitter just in case we forgot!

China and the Left

I see a similarity of China and the Left here, aside from the communism ties. It is not a stretch, the political strategies align. You might say birds of the feather.

It is always about the goal with the left, as it is with China. The means are only the vehicle, to be discarded when the goal is achieved. And anything that achieves it is acceptable.

Regarding the trade deficit with China, and recent tariff announcements, Trump said that there may be some pain but in the end we will have a stronger country. That is the first time I heard a leader reference the long game of what we want. (okay maybe not first) A lot of people probably shuttered to hear that.

I bet that got the Chinese’s attention because he is referencing the long game. Something we don’t always stress. It shakes their predictability about us. In other words, that we would be willing to weather some pain to get to the benefit in the end.

See the strategy to Chinese is really as simple as the lefts’ is. Both are focused on the destination not on the means. Whatever the means matters little. The destination is king. That is the same with the Chinese. And If they really believe in their dominant end, and we know they do, then that tells the real story.

To Chinese they want to control or run the world. See if that is their goal then nothing else is important. Do you get it? If that is where they see themselves, at that point there is nothing anyone can do to them about anything — there’s nothing to negotiate. That may seem a fantasy to us, but if they believe it then it gives their strategy away. Once they are in the driver’s seat the game is over.

We, however look at this as a long term game that will continue. It won’t once they reach their destination. They will be the tyrants they want to be and it will be tough to anyone who disagrees. That is what they have in mind. Nothing like our goals or strategy. We want a working relationship, for the long term. They are just thinking as the short term until they get to their destination.They think none of this stuff will matter then.

It is the same type mindset the Left has. They look only at achieving their desired ends. Once that is done, nothing else such as rules apply. It is a king of the hill perspective. They plan on keeping the hill once they get it. That is the way their plans work. Do you see the similarity? Power is rule, and rule is permanent not temporary. At that point, all resources go to preserving and keeping that permanent rule. Sure, it is a scorched earth plan but so what? That is how they play. We are looking at it as a balancing act but they don’t want anything balanced. They want control and once you have it, you run the show. If we do not look at the end game, goals, of those like China, Russia, N Korea, or Iran, then we underestimate the game. The days of just ignoring it are dwindling.

This is why we, meaning media and talking heads, are concerned about a trade war. It’s a perpetual real war to China, and they plan on winning. So the state of a trade war does not matter to China at all. This is also why intellectual property is a major issue to us and not to them. Their end doesn’t see a problem with private intellectual property.

It is sort of the same thing as CNN or MSM worrying about so-called Russia collusion. while the rest of the country is concerned about trade. The two are not on the same wave lengths, like two different orbits. Which one matters?

A message from CFact

China’s rise

China’s development is astounding.

India, Brazil and other nations hope to copy it.

There are many tragic flaws when international global warming agreements are penned. Among the worst is the willingness of the leaders of the West to turn a blind eye to how useless their economy-wrecking global warming policies are when considered in a global context.China coal use

While President Obama is waging war on coal and oil, China is building coal plants as fast as it possibly can. Chinese coal use is poised to surpass the entire rest of the world’s use of coal combined.

China and the other so-called “BRIC” nations are more than happy to step up as the developed world steps down, and will happily produce the goods that our escalating energy costs and regulatory burden make too expensive to produce at home.

President Obama’s recent global warming deal with China is totally one-sided. The U.S. committed to capping emissions (and damaging the economy) now, while China has until 2030 to maybe, if they feel like it, consider capping emissions then. 2030 is when China projects its emissions will peak in any event.

This deal was naive.

Meanwhile, global warming regulations will drive up prices for Americans, while any miniscule effect on emissions is dwarfed by China’s increase.

cement consumption USGSConsider this astonishing fact that Bill Gates blogged about and the Washington Post picked up:

China used more cement in the last three years, than the U.S. did in the entire 20th century!

That’s how fast China is expanding.
Sure, five percent of human greenhouse gas emissions are attributed to cement (if emissions are your thing), but what that tremendous growth really tells us is that global warming policies that depress the economy may advance the agendas of the developed world’s warming-Left, but will have no real impact on global emissions.

If you think Obama’s deal with China was bad, just wait to see what he’s prepared to sign at the big UN climate conference in Paris this December.

The need to educate the public has never been greater.

For nature and people too,

Craig Rucker
Executive Director

P.S.   China’s rapid, massive industrialization is exactly the kind of crucial fact that global warming pressure groups do not want discussed in the context of climate.  Sign the petition to stop climate censorship.  Share it with as many people as possible.  There is too much at stake to allow the warming-Left to muzzle speech and hide the facts.

I admit what got my attention was the amount of cement China used. Tell-tale signs of a country under construction. But take a look at that picture, it is astounding.

Let that mental image sink in with the concrete facts. Just incredible, isn’t it?

Spies Like US

U.S. Charges Chinese Army Personnel With Cyberspying

By MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT | MAY 19, 2014 | NYT

WASHINGTON — The Department of Justice said on Monday it had charged five individuals in China’s People’s Liberation Army in connection with stealing trade secrets from some of the largest American companies, including Westinghouse, United States Steel and Alcoa.

The move marked a rare instance of the United States charging foreign government employees with economic espionage, and it increased the tensions between American and Chinese officials who have accused each other in public and in private of using military assets to initiate hacks and cyberattacks.

At a news conference in Washington, the Justice Department said it was searching for five people: Wang Dong, Sun Kailiang, Wen Xinyu, Huang Zhenyu, and Gu Chunhui. It is unlikely that any of them will ever be brought to trial in the United States.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said the men “have targeted the U.S. private sector for commercial advantage.”

“We allege that members of unit 61398 conspired to hack into computers of six U.S. victims to steal information that would provide an economic advantage to the victims’ competitors, including Chinese state-owned enterprises,” Mr. Holder said.

The Justice Department said that the men were indicted on May 1 by a federal grand jury in Pennsylvania and charged with conspiring to commit computer fraud and accessing a computer without authorization for the purpose of commercial advantage. [../]

So Holder announces crackdown, after secrets are already stolen. This just reveals how much damage is done. Are these efforts just for show? Is his timing just politics?

Filthy “Pool” for O-regime, what do you expect?

Dirty “pool”(report) in China? Big surprise.

Dirty Pool

Column: The rise of secretarial journalism

BY: Matthew Continetti | Free Beacon
December 6, 2013 5:00 am

It was a sunny day in Beijing on Thursday—refreshingly sunny, to be more precise—when Vice President Joe Biden met Chinese Premier Li Keqiang. I know this because I have read the pool report of the occasion, a pithy and practically content-free piece of journalism that is nevertheless one of the more entertaining things to enter my inbox in recent days. The pool report confirms the lingering suspicion—if it hasn’t been confirmed a million times already—that the line between journalism and Democratic Party cheerleading has more than faded. It has become invisible.

Pool reports are summaries of official events distributed to reporters, who then use the information to write articles or produce news packages. The building blocks of journalism, involving basic details such as names, places, and local color, pool reports are typically written by members of the periodical press. But the Internet has thrown open the question of what the periodical press is. And in the case of Vice President Biden’s visit with the Chinese collective oligarchy at the Zhongnanhai Leadership Compound, the pool report was composed and issued by someone who is not a member of the periodical press, someone who is not really “a journalist,” as the term is broadly understood, at all. His name is Steve Clemons.

Clemons is a Washington hand and bon vivant who has spent a long career working for a Democratic senator, working for think tanks, and working in the interstices of online journalism, event programming, and D.C. social climbing. For some time he has been parked at the New American Foundation—a center-left think tank that recently hosted an event for an anti-Israel screed written by the son of a top Clinton confidante—and at the Atlantic Monthly, where he is “Washington editor at large.” Politico has described him as a “foreign policy ‘super-agent,’” and the foreign policy for which he flacks lines up remarkably closely with the “realist” policy of the Obama administration: eager to negotiate with traditional adversaries, convinced that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the cause of Middle East turmoil, and determined to prevent neoconservatives and the dastardly Israel Lobby from committing America to foreign entanglements. Clemons was a key player in the campaign to install as America’s secretary of defense the embarrassingly stupid Chuck Hagel. He is not, let us be clear, a “disinterested observer.” I look forward to Sean Hannity’s pool reports from President Ted Cruz’s state visit to France.

Clemons’s prose is clichéd. “Good morning from refreshingly sunny Beijing where the skies are robin egg blue,” began his first report. Biden did not just greet his Chinese counterpart, Clemons said. Biden “warmly greeted” him. After an exchange of pleasantries, “your pool was then escorted out to brisk air, sunny skies, and a momentary look at the gardens and other pavilions of the exclusive Zhongnanhao Compound.” I hope your pool made the moment count, since he got closer to the center of Chinese authoritarian decision-making than most Chinese ever will. Dan Balz can rest easy: Clemons is not coming for his job anytime soon. Biden Deputy Chief of Staff Shailagh Murray, on the other hand, who used to be a “journalist” herself—well, Shailagh, you better watch out.

“An awkward thing happened in which your pool inadvertently became part of the story,” Clemons reported. The awkward thing was this: The vice president, in conversation with Chinese Vice President Li Yuanchao, began gesturing at Clemons and saying, “He is a very important man. Seriously he is important.”

Your pool demurred as best he could”—I’m sure he did—but Biden continued, telling Li that he should bypass the diplomatic niceties and talk directly with Clemons. “He is the one you really want to speak to. Seriously.” Later Biden bought Clemons a Magnum ice cream bar. But do not assume that the gift of delicious ice cream from a powerful admirer would affect our correspondent’s reportage. “Your pool decided to find out how much the Magnum bar cost and return that amount of yuan to Vice President Biden.” And the First Amendment endured.

Remarkably, no one in the traveling press corps seems to have thought it weird, much less wrong, to assign pool reports to a Beltway player so in sync with the administration’s foreign policy, so beloved by the vice president. “Thanks again to @SCClemons of @The Atlantic for a colorful pool report from the Biden trip,” tweeted CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller. “Colorful” is one word for it. “Useless” and “self-indulgent” are others. The vice president himself, by continually referring to “your pool,” seems to have understood better than the traveling press the conflict of interest presented by Clemons. Or perhaps the press, in giving Clemons the pool assignment, sought to show to the world, in a passive-aggressive way, just how phony and strained the coverage of this White House is. Whatever their reasons, neither Clemons nor anyone else in the press corps traveling with Biden seems to have asked what the vice president’s son Hunter, a former lobbyist with manifold business interests, was up to while accompanying dad on his East Asian tour. Or would asking that question hurt one’s future job prospects?

Adversarial journalism has been replaced by secretarial journalism. Obamacare’s glitches have not slowed the trend. While Robert Pear of the New York Times has been skeptical and critical of the Obamacare rollout, his colleagues on the paper’s political team are eager to return to boosting the program’s namesake. “Democrats’ Latest Campaign for Health Care Law Begins,” read the front-page headline on Thursday’s paper. “Seizing on the good news of an improving health care website and rising enrollments,” write Jonathan Weisman and Michael D. Shear, President Obama and his allies on Wednesday “highlighted parts of the law that are popular with the public and reminded Americans, and the law’s opponents, of what would be lost if the Affordable Care Act were repealed.” […/]

Leave it to Biden to perfectly demonstrate the purpose of a free press, especially in China. (Not) Well, go Joe, show ’em just how it’s done! What better place to roll out your expertise in pool reporting control? The other non-surprise is how all this seems to go over rather well with the press “corpse” in general — alas, the errant word fits here.

All this irony is lost on Biden and, naturally, on Clemons. Both he and Biden continually refer to “your pool”, like some British Lord. “Lord of Pressland” maybe?

Compare the salutation to “your honor” — “your pool”. Or maybe he could be dubded “your Pookie“, since Obama is fond of the name — like a composite reporter?

Dividends piling up for Obama’s green agenda

Abound Solar Finances Under Investigation

DOE-loan recipient filed for bankruptcy in June

The finances of a solar company that received $68 million in federal stimulus money are now under investigation in Colorado, reports ABC Denver:

http://freebeacon.com/abound-solar-finances-under-investigation/

———————————————————————————————–
 


I’ll just add some of my comments.
After all the rage about solar companies, where Obama succumbed to one of his worst losses — or “bets”– the industry is on the move once again. But not in an upward “can’t fail” way.

Months back, large solar companies in Europe were forced to lay off workers or just went under. The market flooded with cheaper goods from China was to blame, as it also cornered the market on raw materials. Sales for Solar companies outside China plummeted. China appeared to be capitalizing on all the losses elsewhere.

Then, stories came about huge layoffs in Germany as companies went belly up. The business and future it held for employees even in Germany sank for an industry which seemed to hold such promise for its economy.

This is a warning about the dangers of government manipulated industries. China is the prime example. The solar industry once heralded as the new wave enjoyed growth and expansion everywhere, especially in China. The same government that subsidized it is picking winners and losers. Sound familiar? The state-controlled banks are the government’s cops on the beat. Of course, the banks decide who will survive by who gets loans and who doesn’t. And banks are not granting loans only for expansion, another blow to the sector.

Now the government decided it is time for industry consolidation after it endorsed expansion for years. So they must force consolidation. Banks already limited expansion and now encourage mergers and acquisitions within the sector, large companies buying smaller operations.

There are growing cries for tarrifs on China. Let’s see what that brings; or if they materialize with the same hyper-addiction the industry enjoyed? US has stepped up tariffs and the EU is on the verge of adopting tougher measures. Other countries are considering that formula. So a monopolized market is finally getting squeezeed as others seek relief to China’s “dumping” around the world. And that reaction appears to be creating a problem for China.
