'Time to blow whistle' on China: Clinton
economictimes.indiatimes.com ^ | May 04, 2008 | Economic Times

Posted on 05/03/2008 2:56:52 PM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton warned today it was time to "blow the whistle" on China, accusing it of unfair trade practices.

She stood close to a parade of closed shops and pawnbrokers in North Carolina as she vowed to turn the US economy around, despite fears of recession, and promised action to reverse a tide of industrial jobs moving abroad.

"We do have to get tough on China, it is long past time for us to blow the whistle," the New York senator said, in the latest of a string of campaign assaults on Beijing.

"This country manipulates its currency to our disadvantage, they engage in broad-based intellectual property theft, industrial espionage, they do not follow the rules they agreed to follow when they joined the WTO," she said.

"What do we get in return from them? Well, we get tainted pet food, we get lead-laced toys, we get polluted pharmaceuticals."

"If you want to be our partner, you've got to play by the same rules," Clinton said, three days before North Carolina's crucial primary, one of the key end-game votes in the Democratic nominating contest.

The American Manufacturing Trade Action Coalition says North Carolina, in the eastern United States, has lost 211,000 manufacturing jobs since 2001.

Looks like the Chicoms have stopped contributing. They know a sinking ship when they see one. They’re probably now busy trying to open a back door channel to McCain.

Senator Clinton (D-NY) denounced President Bush for not stopping the Chinese government from buying an Indiana company and moving the jobs to China. Reminded that the transaction actually took place during her husband’s administration, Senator Clinton drew a distinction by pointing out that “Bush got nothing from the Chinese in exchange for not stopping it, while Bill got generous campaign help against Bob Dole for initiating it. I will drive similar hard bargains when I’m president.”

That rotten Skank’s husband bent over backwards to kiss China's butt....Her rotten Husband enabled China to get high tech missle secrets when he started letting the Commerce Dept dabble in our national security. There is a technology used in supercomputers that is also used in ballistic missles. It used to be controlled by the Defense Dept. When Clinton took office, he changed it to the Commerce Dept. and then allowed it to be sold to China. BEFORE Clinton, China could not reach our shores with ballistic missiles. AFTER Clinton, China gained the technology to hit the continental United States. Traitorous!

Billary Rotten Clinton will say and do anything to gain power!!!!

Wake up America before it's too late

She’s lying, of course. Hillary Clinton is the Queen of free traitors—their most desired puppet to finish the stupid class war here.

During the 1992 campaign the Clintonists made much of President George H.W. Bush's "soft" attitude toward Red China. We'll be tough, said the Clintonists.

Tough?

What did Bill and Hillary do? Make the cost of one of our national defense secrets too high so the Chi-Coms got all but one of them?

Correct, Old Phone Guy!

It was Loral Space Systems based in Mountain View, CA. However, while Bill Clinton sold us out to the Little Red Devils, Bush continued the practice and did not end Loral’s contribution to that end. Bush continued to sell our technology to Red China. Let’s give credit where credit’s due!

It's too bad Sen Thompson's committee could connect the dots on Slick’s ChiCom campaign donations and associated trade deals for sensitive technology to the ChiComs in exchange for campaign donations. What a missed opportunity! Now the problem is, Hillary might just be repeating the same scam under the cover of “being tough” with the Chinese. A Hillary presidency will see more trade junkets associated with campaign contributions. Eeech!

“Bush continued the practice and did not end Loral’s contribution to that end. Bush continued to sell our technology to Red China. Let’s give credit where credit’s due!”

It’s been a long time since any president was tough on the Chinese. Certainly no one named Bush ever was. GHWB must have developed a special fondness for them after his stint as Ambassador to China. And he dispatched Scrowcroft to reassure them that nothing would really change after the unpleasantness at Tiananmen Square in 1989.

Only time will tell how wise our suck-up policies toward Red China have been.

I am just gong through the older articles, and I looked at the source twice before reading the entire article. Your reply made me go BACK and look again, since I had three browsers open. I thought the very same thing - either John Semmons, Scrappleface or the Daily Redundancy.
