House Rebukes Clinton on China Satellite Export (Duncan Hunter Archives)
Wash Post ^ | John Harris

Posted on 11/21/2007 10:46:33 AM PST by pissant

In a series of nearly unanimous votes, the House yesterday said President Clinton failed to act in "the national interest" earlier this year when he gave permission for a Chinese satellite launch to a U.S. aerospace firm with close Democratic ties, and moved to block him from approving similar exports.

With all but a handful of Democrats joining the House GOP majority, legislators rebuked Clinton's handling of a critical aspect of U.S.-China policy -- commerce in militarily sensitive technology -- just a month before he is to make a long-planned trip to Beijing. One of the measures, effectively banning all further exports of commercial satellites to China, would terminate current and pending deals by U.S. companies valued at hundreds of millions of dollars.

(snip)

But yesterday's House votes, all on amendments to the annual defense authorization bill, made plain that Democrats, too, have concerns. By 364 to 54, lawmakers adopted Rep. Duncan Hunter's (R-Calif.) proposal for a flat ban on the export or re-export of satellites to China.

He never gives up, so neither should any of his supporters! God bless the man. May the Hunter home be rich with blessings, having Duncan Duane home. What a joyous time for all of you!

Our prayers are with you, Sir. With Congress voting to cut back our Army and Marine bases, you will need them.
(Please, all Freepers, email your Congresscritters to fully fund these bases!)

By a vote of 417 to 4, the House also passed a damning, although nonbinding, "sense of the Congress" resolution offered by...

What should have been included in this piece (in regards to "sense of the Congress") - is the following:

"SENSE OF CONGRESS THAT COMMITTEE ON GOVERNMENT REFORM AND OVERSIGHT SHOULD CONFER IMMUNITY CONCERNING ILLEGAL FOREIGN FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES"

It is mind boggling to think of what happened during the Clinton administration to our national security.

Absolutely mind boggling.
I'd give my right hand to have one or more of the Republican candidates come on the Sunday talk shows and bring up Hillary and Bill's Chinagate connections - and demand that Hillary respond!

China could turn out to be a pre-WWII Japan. Hunter has been on the case of warning us of the national security threat we are facing from China with our reliance on them and blind eye to the obvious military buildup and threats they are showing us.

http://blog.barofintegrity.us/2007/09/04/duncan-hunter-interview-with-hugh-hewitt.aspx

Duncan Hunter: We have had 4 congressional debates now and we have been out campaigning hard this entire year. We had one great question, I think it came from either Brit Hume or one of his team, during the Fox debate in the South Carolina, last question of the debate to me on China.

I was able to give, you only have one minute answer, I try to be a master on the compact answers, I laid out that we have this cheating on trade which is stacking up billions to China and they are using this money to arm.

This presents a long term challenge to the United States. Maybe not a direct threat; but a military threat is comprised of two things, capability and intent. They certainly are building a capability to cause us a lot of harm. And the intent of China is always difficult to understand.

In reference to your graphic in #3, a layman's question. The Communist also have satellites in orbit. Weren't they concerned about their own satellites being knocked out by their own litter or were they simply ignorant at the time?
Or is it the obvious answer that pre-1994 (pre-Loral, Bernard Schwartz / pre-human toilet Bill Clinton's waiver to Loral), that with most all Chinese rockets failing, they were simply donks.

The long and the short of it was that the Communist Chinese wanted to be on par with us and were shrewd enough to use Huang, Chung and Trie and a pittance of dollars to bribe filthbags Bill and Hillary Clinton and the DNC - and they got our entire arsenal.
