Ominous warning: Admiral concedes U.S. losing dominance to China
America, stop sending US industry to China.
America needs to build things right here, in America.
Bring back American manufacturing.

Our foreign policy is adrift. Obama is pathetic.
That's what I remember Madeleine Allbright saying and they all believe it.
That’s by design.Osama Obama and his Maoist pals will settle for nothing less.After all our Armed Forces have caused nothing but death,destruction and oppression for the last 50 years or more.
Our government is so corrupt, unconstitutional, and malignant, that as Hillary said, what difference does it make. I honestly can’t support US foreign policy because I believe that the US government is a force for evil. That said, China is no better. I guess all we can hope for is that evil will exhaust itself be battling against itself.
But the US has alienated India and shown no support for Japan. Asia fears the dragon and no longer sees the US as a reliable counterweight.
There is a whole new generation of people in the street that had never worked at a factory and has no intention to start. Toiling at a conveyor is not a clean and easy office job. Such work would have to be poorly paid because one does not need a university diploma to push the same one button on a machine every single day. The country may not have workers anymore that would fit into that niche.
Domestic manufacturing is possible; but it will have to be entirely robotic. This will avoid the problem of very expensive human labor. This will also increase the pool of permanently unemployed people. It will be so because robotic factories will not need inefficient but overpaid humans to do repetitive tasks. Those humans who cannot find a more creative occupation for themselves (engineers, techs, doctors, artists) will have to be on social security forever.
Anyone supporting Free Trade with Communist China is committing treason.
It wasn’t too long ago that aiding the enemy got one executed for Treason.
How stupid can anyone be continuing to support our economic situation with Communist China
Our financial policies is killing this country. China does not have to sink our carriers, our budget deficits will force us to mothball one carrier at a time as we do not have funds to keep it at sea. Look at Britain as an example. Due to budgetary constraints, the Brits could not even maintain a no fly zone with 24 aircraft over Libya because the funds for the operations ran out within 30 days.
One can see this in the Chinese attitude. We array more carriers, yet the PLAN take a leisurely pace in developing her carrier forces. They have only one carrier and using it to test various aircraft on take off and landing as well as carrier air and deck operations. Nobody seems to be rushing to match US Pacific Fleet for a war. Rather it is slow and meticulous. China knows the US budget deficit will crush US power.
Automation in the US will hire more Americans than factories in Communist China.
Automated factories will always need humans to service equipment, make repairs, and program the machines. In fact, another drawback of Free Trade with Communist China is that we could have automated a lot cheaper years ago...but it was cheaper to use ChiCom labor
What's his concern? The current resident and demonrats have been working to this end for years, and demonrats in general for decades! America is a bully, America is past it's prime, America apologizes for being exceptional, so says the pussy in chief. I say America is only guilty of pulling the worlds nuts out of the fire repeatedly thru the blood of our young and the fruits and hard work of a nation. But what the hell the demonrats are getting what they want the trashing of America.
I know exactly how you feel because I feel the same way. When the Dept of Homeland Security considers us military veterans, patriots and bible carrying citizens as potential terrorists then I too no longer trust anything that comes out of the mouth or brain of a federal employee. If they view me as a potential terrorist then they are my enemy.
When my state legislature considers the welfare of illegal aliens before the health of our own state citizens I can no longer support my government.
When the Courts no longer appear to follow the law of reason and common sense, why should I respect them?
Our military has succumbed to a mass infiltration of deviates and anti Christian regulations. Don’t expect me to support those ideas either.
There’s no reason for me to go on with this rant as you understand how I feel.
I’m sorry I do not agree with opposing American power.
We need to win elections, and win back government, but there is absolutely no excuse for making America weaker.
What's the brand name of the computer you used to post this article?
Was it an "American" made Compaq or a Chinese made Compak which a friends of mine saw in India (the second most populated country in the world)?
China no longer needs "our" industries. They have their own and are flooding the world with them, brands such as KFG, Mike shoes, King Burger, LL Been backpacks (flooding southeast asia), Sonie DVD players.
I suppose we could boycott China but do we still have the buying power to make the difference? "Our" jobs didn't just go to China. They went to India, Malaysia, Korea, Mexico and many other nations and I doubt we'll see them come back in our lifetime. We've seen our peak. We are in the midst of a self-inflicted freefall.
Nobody sent "our" jobs there. They were never ours to begin with. They are the jobs of the manufacturing companies that decided that America is no longer a business friendly nation.
"I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems"
"I will slow our development of future combat systems"
-- Barack Obama, 2007 campaign trail
America needs to build things right here, in America.
DUH!... a little late for that isn’t it?...
Ominous warning: the regime needs a war against China to distract the citizenry from domestic affairs and unite the ignorant against a common enemy.
Anyone building a factory in the U.S. now must have been asleep for 20/30 years..
even in a right to work State..
The Idiot's Guide to Chinagate [flashback Bill Clinton]

The Idiot's Guide to Chinagate
By Richard Poe
May 26, 2003
CHINA WILL LIKELY replace the USA as world leader, said Bill Clinton in a recent Washington Post interview. It is just a matter of time. Clinton should know. He has personally done more to build Chinas military strength than any man on earth.
Most Americans have heard of the so-called "Chinagate " scandal. Few understand its deadly import, however. Web sites such as "Chinagate for Dummies" and its companion "More Chinagate for Dummies" offer some assistance. Unfortunately, with a combined total of nearly 8,000 words, these two sites like so many others of the genre offer more detail than most of us "dummies" can absorb.
For that reason, in the 600 words left in this column, I will try to craft my own "Idiots Guide to Chinagate," dedicated to all those busy folks like you and me whose attention span tends to peter out after about 750 words. Here goes.
When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, China presented little threat to the United States. Chinese missiles "couldnt hit the side of a barn," notes Timothy W. Maier of Insight magazine. Few could reach North America and those that made it would likely miss their targets.
Thanks to Bill Clinton, China can now hit any city in the USA, using state-of-the-art, solid-fueled missiles with dead-accurate, computerized guidance systems and multiple warheads.
China probably has suitcase nukes as well. These enable China to strike by proxy equipping nuclear-armed terrorists to do their dirty work, while the Chinese play innocent. Some intelligence sources claim that China maintains secret stockpiles of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons on U.S. soil, for just such contingencies.
In 1997, Clinton allowed China to take over the Panama Canal. The Chinese company Hutchison Whampoa leased the ports of Cristobal and Balboa, on the east and west openings of the canal respectively, thus controlling access both ways. A public outcry stopped Clinton in 1998 from leasing Californias Long Beach Naval Yard to the Chinese firm COSCO. Even so, China can now strike U.S. targets easily from their bases in Panama, Vancouver and the Bahamas.
How did China catch up so fast? Easy. We sold them all the technology they needed or handed it over for free. Neither neglect nor carelessness are to blame. Bill Clinton did it on purpose.
As a globalist, Clinton promotes "multipolarity" the doctrine that no country (such as the USA) should be allowed to gain decisive advantage over others.
To this end, Clinton appointed anti-nuclear activist Hazel OLeary to head the Department of Energy. OLeary set to work "leveling the playing field," as she put it, by giving away our nuclear secrets. She declassified 11 million pages of data on U.S. nuclear weapons and loosened up security at weapons labs.
Federal investigators [Cox Report] later concluded that China made off with the "crown jewels" of our nuclear weapons research under Clintons open-door policy probably including design specifications for suitcase nukes. Meanwhile, Clinton and his corporate cronies raked in millions.
In his book The China Threat, Washington Times correspondent Bill Gertz describes how the system worked. Defense contractors eager to sell technology to China poured millions of dollars into Clintons campaign. In return, Clinton called off the dogs.
Janet Reno and other counterintelligence officials stood down while Lockheed Martin, Hughes Electronics, Loral Space & Communications and other U.S. companies helped China modernize its nuclear strike force.
"We like your president. We want to see him reelected," former Chinese intelligence chief General Ji Shengde told Chinagate bagman Johnny Chung. Indeed, Chinese intelligence organized a massive covert operation aimed at tilting the 1996 election Clintons way.
Clintons top campaign contributors for 1992 were Chinese agents; his top donors in 1996 were U.S. defense contractors selling missile technology to China.
Clinton recieved funding directly from known or suspected Chinese intelligence agents, among them James and Mochtar Riady who own the Indonesian Lippo Group; John Huang; Charlie Trie; Ted Sioeng; Maria Hsia; Wang Jun and others.
Commerce Secretary Ron Brown served as Clintons front man in many Chinagate deals. When investigators began probing Browns Lippo Group and Chinagate connections, Brown died suddenly in a suspicious April 1996 plane crash.
Needless to say, China does not share Clintons enthusiasm for globalism or multipolarity. The Chinese look out for Number One.
"War [with the United States] is inevitable; we cannot avoid it," said Chinese Defense Minister General Chi Haotian in 2000. "The issue is that the Chinese armed forces must control the initiative in this war." Bill Clinton has given them a good start.
