Nancy Pelosi visits Dalai Lama, he prays to rid her of ‘negative attitudes’

In other words, this is known as a junket at tax payers expense. It is curious that Nancy chose the Dalai Lama to heal her wounds. Once more she rambles along, but anyway, Northern India can be nice this time of year.

If there’s anyone on earth who can heal Nancy Pelosi’s bitterness and “negative attitudes,” it might be the Dalai Lama.

During a Congressional visit to Dharamsala, North India, on Tuesday, the House Minority Leader admitted the Dalai Lama was praying for her to rid herself of her negativity.

The most curious part of her speech came when Pelosi said she wouldn’t delve into the “brutal tactics of the Chinese government,” which rules Tibet.

Her reason?

“His Holiness prayed for me that I would rid myself of my negative attitude about dwelling on the negative too much,” Pelosi confessed to the crowd.

The California politician has called herself “a devout, practicing Catholic,” yet her staunch pro-choice position on abortion stands in opposition to the church.

It remains to be seen if the Dalai Lama’s supplication on Pelosi’s behalf has indeed done the trick. H/T: The Blaze

Bill Nye, the eugenics guy, says lets penalize families with ‘extra kids’

Bill Nye the science guy gives me a bit of PTSD. A flashback to the days of the old “Red China” days when they had their plans of destroying any aspect of culture. Purging it of thousands of years of history. We are doing that quite well without Bill. But now he moves on to Eugenics. Western Civilization is already looking at the specter of a declining birth rate that dooms itself to annihilation. Bill Nye has a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. Period. That is it. But this will be the new indoctrination for us and here is when it began. Here we go:

The Internet is rightly mocking the complete disaster that is the Rachel Bloom “My Sex Junk” video that is part of the new Netflix series, “Bill Nye Saves the World.” As bad as that is (it is BAD), another portion of the series is even worse. The 13th and final installment is titled “Earth’s People Problem,” and with a name like that, you know we could be in for some ideas that border on eugenics.

The 26-minute episode starts off in fairly inoffensive fashion. Following an intro that demonstrates how human consumption is like sponges soaking up water, Nye explains how women who have access to educational and professional opportunities tend to have fewer children.

Let’s Reconsider…Forced Sterilization?

The fight against climate change, Nye’s most passionate cause, is brought up by Rieder, who notes that children in developed countries use 160 times more resources than children in the developing world. This is where the creepy totalitarianism of the environmental movement starts to show itself. Nye asks, bluntly, “Should we have policies that penalize people for having extra kids in the developed world?”

Extra kids. These d-mn people and their existence, am I right? Nye (who, again, decided we all needed to see that abomination from Bloom) is wise enough to set limits on humanity. This whole concept and the ease with which he discusses it is so frightening and evil that I am genuinely appalled at Netflix’s decision to air it.

Rieder says we should “at least consider” a form of punishment for people who have these Extra Kids (TM). Nye impatiently responds that “consider means do it.” Snow, to her credit, jumps in and takes issue with the idea that “we do anything to incentivize fewer children or more children.” Benfield notes the history of compulsory sterilization in America, a practice that was in place as recently as the 1970s. The issue was not come at from a position of justice in the past, she adds. But this time will be different, I guess?

So, if you’re scoring at home, that leaves China’s maternity laws and their recently ended one-child policy as the key points from this half hour of science televangelism. As Calandrelli says, it’s time for America to “catch up.” With China.

Yeesh. The program had eight minutes left that I couldn’t watch even if I tried.

Lawmakers say ‘halt’ to sale of Chicago Stock Exchange to China

Of course this is done over the holidays with an abbreviated comment period. We gave Russia our Uranium why not give China access to manipulating our financial markets. The unthinkable is thinkable these days. The Obama regime remains without comment. Here tis:

stockLawmakers are demanding a longer review of a Chinese firm’s deal to purchase the Chicago Stock Exchange, voicing concerns over the sale’s impact on U.S. national security and the financial security of the American marketplace.

“As the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) conducts its process to review this transaction, we similarly urge you to consider the negative impacts Chinese state-affiliated ownership of the Chicago Exchange will have on national security and the financial security of the American marketplace,” the lawmakers wrote.

Earlier this month, the Chicago Stock Exchange announced that CFIUS found “no unresolved national security concerns” regarding the deal. The sale now only faces approval by the SEC. The Treasury Department has declined to comment on the development.

The lawmakers argued Thursday that the deal would offer the firm the ability to “manipulate” the $22 trillion U.S. equity marketplace.

“The integrity of, and confidence in America’s financial markets is a bedrock component of our nation’s security,” they wrote. “This transaction raises serious questions that go well beyond the limited scope of review that has already taken place. Allowing an entity such as CCEG to acquire one of our nation’s exchanges—with the access, information, and opportunities that exist to undermine U.S. interests—is a very serious matter.”

“Given these concerns, we urge you to consider rejecting this transaction,” the lawmakers wrote.

Clinton denied high level Chinese defector to assist Beijing leaders

This is a prime example of the kind of leadership we can expect with a Clinton Presidency. She never was able to figure out the White hats, nor the Black hats. She tore through the Middle East dispatching an Arab Spring hell fire the likes of which ended with failed states rich with terrorists. You want some intelligence? No, let’s help China. Here tis:

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton turned away a high-ranking Chinese defector who sought political asylum after the communist police chief sought refuge in a U.S. consulate in southwestern China four years ago.

Critics say Clinton’s handling of the defection of Wang Lijun, a close aide to a regional Communist Party leader, was a blunder and lost opportunity for U.S. intelligence to gain secrets about the leaders of America’s emerging Asian adversary.

However, the defector’s case highlights Clinton’s policy of seeking to preserve U.S. ties with China’s communist leadership instead of pursuing much-needed intelligence gathering on China at a time when Beijing is emerging as an increasingly threatening power.

Details of the mishandling of the Wang defection have been kept secret by the Obama administration, and Clinton’s version of events were contradicted by U.S. officials and the official Chinese account. Instead of gaining long-term access to a valuable defector with inside knowledge of Chinese strategy and policies, Clinton contacted the Chinese government in Beijing and allowed security officials to take Wang into custody outside the U.S. consulate some 30 hours after he entered the property in a daring bid to flee China for the United States.

China launching cyber attacks on Missile defense every day

While we hear about trade agreements with China being unfair to American workers, how about the fact that they are working on killing us?

Chinese military hackers are conducting cyber attacks on the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency networks on a daily basis and will soon shift to hacking into networks of missile defense contractors, the admiral in charge of the agency told Congress on Thursday.

Perhaps we don’t have our priorities straight. Just suggesting. To give you an eye full, take a look at the attacks from around the world in real time. Maps are interactive, buzz around:

Although the attacks seem like they are being launched from China, that is not necessarily true as attackers are good at masking their real location. Just the same, in this little snapshot of “live” activity, Norse’s cyber attack map shows China launching massive attacks on the USA.

A report by the Defense Science Board warned in 2013 that critical U.S. weapons and other military systems are vulnerable to cyber attack.

“The United States cannot be confident that our critical Information Technology (IT) systems will work under attack from a sophisticated and well-resourced opponent utilizing cyber capabilities in combination with all of their military and intelligence capabilities (a ‘full spectrum’ adversary,” the report concluded.

If this didn’t put our nerves on end, try this one.

Chinese makes takeover bid of U.S. Military manufacturing equipment company

This story is almost unthinkable. Terex is a huge company. Over 20,000 employees world-wide. Maker of all kinds of heavy equipment. If you see a road or bridge being built, Terex equipment is probably there. But more importantly, military equipment. Slowly but surely we are selling out our manufacturing capability. We already are giving away our refineries. Try U.S. giving away ownership and control of our Energy and refineries. or Clintons and the give away of U.S. Uranium mines or Millions Flowed To Clinton Foundation In Exchange For Russian Control Over Large Portion Of U.S. Uranium. How much did the Chinese give to the Clinton Foundation to try a gain control of Terex? No doubt this was in the works for some time.

Throughout its maturation, GM’s Terex Division created some of the industry’s most notable heavy construction equipment, including the world’s first off-road hauler (1Z Trac-Truk), the world’s first twin-powered dozer (TC-12) and the world’s largest truck, the Terex 33-19 “Titan,” produced in the 1970s.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R., Calif.) wrote to Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew urging for scrutiny over an unsolicited takeover bid from a Chinese company to manufacture U.S. military equipment.

“It has come to my attention that Terex Corporation, an American Company that manufactures heavy equipment, including cranes for the Army, Navy, and other government agencies, has received an unsolicited takeover bid from Zoomlion Heavy Industry, a Chinese Government Owned Company that is a longtime supplier of the People’s Liberation Army,” said Duncan.

“While it is my understanding that Terex and Zoomlion have yet to finalize the terms of a deal, the fact that a leading [People’s Liberation Army] supplier is seeking to purchase an American company that provides critical infrastructure equipment to a number of government agencies, including the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security, demands that the agreement undergo through scrutiny if it does materialize,” he said. H/T:Free Beacon

 

Treasury Jack Lew ‘China’s Markets aren’t linked to the rest of the world’

On July 10, 2015 Treasury Secretary Lew another under appreciated savant of the Obama administration, assured us that the Chinese markets have little to do with the world’s markets. I am not a rocket scientist, but wondered at the wisdom of his statements.

Jack Lew discusses the Chinese stock market and its potential impact on the U.S. economy.

Jack Lew, speaking at the Brookings Institution in July, confidently assured that Americans were immune from weakening markets in China.

“I will say that China’s markets still are pretty much separated from world markets,” the secretary of Treasury, said. “They’re, obviously, moving towards being more integrated, but right now they’re not.”

“So you’re not going to, I don’t think, see the direct linkage there,” Lew said.

“I think the concern, that is a real one, is what does it mean about long term growth in China.”
