Obama Shuts Down Voice of America Broadcast to China


Anyone still wondering who is running our government? I thought Hilliary and Zero were all for stirring up the masses? Obama and a Search Engine get you am Egyptian Revolution.  China demands, and Obama bows. Recall:

Yahoo newsChina approved for 1.2 Billion investment in Morgan Stanley

The cables, obtained by WikiLeaks, show that escalating Chinese pressure prompted a procession of soothing visits from the U.S.Treasury Department. In one striking instance, a top Chinese money manager directly asked U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner for a favor.

In June, 2009, the head of China’s powerful sovereign wealth fund met with Geithner and requested that he lean on regulators at the U.S. Federal Reserve to speed up the approval of its $1.2 billion investment in Morgan Stanley, according to the cables, which were provided to Reuters by a third party.

The decision to cut VOA’s shortwave broadcast to China is not about fiscal responsibility, but instead about appeasing the leaders of the Chinese Communist Party, according to Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican from California.

“This is clearly not a budget cut, this is clearly an effort to gain favor with dictators by catering to their desires,” he said in an interview. “And their desire is: no criticism.”

Online commentators have pointed out how the BBC’s decision to sideline its China shortwave service also corresponded with the visit to England of Li Keqiang, the apparatchik next in line for the premiership. Both lines of speculation are unconfirmed.

“The fact that our leadership has proposed this reduction in the broadcast services in VOA to the people of China so shortly after a visit paid here by a leader of the Communist Party of China, Mr. Hu, should let people understand that this is not simply something that was in the works and it was a budget cut,” Mr. Rohrabacher said. “What we’re seeing is the product of a deal between the President of the United States, and a dictator who holds power with an iron fist.”

    Once again we see Barack Obama trying to appease another country yet this always seems to be a one way street with hin because we never get anything in return and actually we are just losing repsect across the globe because other leaders see Obama as a ragdoll they can roll whenever they please.

    Funny, this comes just as China is cracking down on its own “jasmine revolution.” What is happening in the Middle East won’t happen for five minutes in China.
