    Most Republicans recall the Doodad Pro controversy from almost exactly four years ago, where Team Obama campaign websites turned off credit card security checks that allowed fraudulent and foreign donations to flow into the campaign. Could that be happening again? According to a new independent report from the Government Accountability Institute and reported by Breitbart, not only is it actually happening again — it’s actually gotten worse. A bundler for Barack Obama has set up a shady website operation to collect donations to the campaign, but it’s based in Shanghai, and the bundler has ties to the Chinese government: In...

    On Friday, shares of Trina Solar closed at $4.62, down $0.18 for the day. The stock has been falling for a long time, declining more than 85% in the last three years. That’s not bad, however, considering Trina is a Chinese solar company. Rival Suntech Power has seen its shares, also listed on the Big Board, drop. They are at about 2% of their 2007 values. And Yingli Green Energy plunged 7.3% on Friday in New York, and it is now trading close to its five-year low. In last two years, shares of Chinese solar cell producers have fallen by...

    On Tuesday, October 2, 2012, the Fox Valley Conservative Forum, which meets regularly for a luncheon on Tuesdays in Appleton, Wisconsin, hosted a talk by South African Sonia Hruska (pictured). Hruska, who now lives in the United States, discussed the ongoing genocide against white people in her country under the largely communist-controlled ANC government of Jacob Zuma. Born in Victoria, South Africa, to a nontraditional Afrikaner family, with a right-wing father and a left-wing mother, Hruska would go on to work in politics as a consultant in the presidential administration of Nelson Mandela from 1994 to 2001. “I was the...
  • Archaeologists find 2,000 year-old beef portion in ancient tomb in northwest China

    Archaeologists said a black substance found in an ancient tomb in northwest China's Shaanxi province is a 2,000-year-old portion of beef. Scientists arrived at the conclusion after months of analysis confirmed the substance's makeup, according to Hu Songmei, a paleontologist from the provincial archaeological institute. Xinhua news agency reports that according to Hu, the beef -- most of which had been carbonised -- is the earliest beef product discovered in China. The beef was discovered two years ago in a bronze pot placed in a tomb believed to date back to the Warring States Period (475 B.C. -- 221 B.C.),...

    News flash: Compared to free enterprise, central planning is a reliably inefficient, costly, and ill-fated way to allocate resources.Just kidding, totally not a news flash. It's just good ol' fashioned common sense --- leastaways, you'd think it would be common sense, given that historical examples abound, except that President Obama doesn’t quite seem to get it. Whenever he goes into touting-his-green-energy-"investments" mode, he is constantly suggesting that not only is China gaining an advantage over us in the clean-energy market of the future (how he presumes to know that "wind and solar are the future" is still a mystery to...
  • Romans, Han Dynasty were greenhouse gas emitters: study

    (Reuters) - A 200-year period covering the heyday of both the Roman Empire and China's Han dynasty saw a big rise in greenhouse gases, according to a study that challenges the U.N. view that man-made climate change only began around 1800. A record of the atmosphere trapped in Greenland's ice found the level of heat-trapping methane rose about 2,000 years ago and stayed at that higher level for about two centuries. Methane was probably released during deforestation to clear land for farming and from the use of charcoal as fuel, for instance to smelt metal to make weapons, lead author...

    Eighty-year-old Chinese farmer Guo Shuhe receives a state pension equivalent to just US$9 a month, not enough to buy a month worth of groceries, but enough it seems, to risk punching a gaping hole in government finances. Guo, whose palms are thick and rough from a life spent hoeing fields in southwest China, is one of over 150 million people covered by a rapidly expanding rural retirement scheme which is accelerating the nation’s slide into a pension crisis. “Fifty-five yuan a month is little, but it’s better than nothing,” said Guo, rubbing his head with his hands at his home...

    Another US submarine to dock at Subic By Florante S. Solmerin | Posted on October 04, 2012 | 12:01am The United States has sent its fourth submarine to the Philippines this year, and it’s expected to dock at Subic Bay in Zambales on Thursday, according to a statement released on Wednesday by the US Embassy in Manila. The submarines have been visiting the country amid the territorial disputes of the countries claiming all or part of the Spratly Islands in the West Philippine Sea, with China increasingly imposing its will on the Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia and Brunei over the...
  • Bumbling Obama's Freudian Slip: "I Want To Export More Jobs" - Like GM Does 2 China?

    Industrial Policy: The president's media apologists will say it was not a gaffe, that he merely misspoke and corrected himself. But the fact remains that his policies are exporting jobs, particularly to China. President Obama, during a campaign speech at Kent State University in Ohio on Wednesday, mistakenly said he wanted to export more U.S. jobs before correcting himself and saying he was "channeling" Republican rival Mitt Romney. Or was it a mistake? To his media supporters, it's no gaffe. Their dictionary defines gaffe as anything that comes out of Romney's mouth. Certainly not the mouth of Joe Biden, who...

    Blow for Beijing as manufacturing remains weak Date October 2, 2012 CHINA'S manufacturing activity has continued to show signs of weakness in September, indicating Beijing's lacklustre effort to boost the economy has so far failed to arrest the slowdown. Though the official Purchasing Manager's Index rebounded slightly in September to 49.8 after a 49.2 reading in August, it still hovered below the expansion threshold of 50, increasing market speculation that the Chinese economy may grow less than 7.5 per cent this year - the official government target. August had marked the lowest reading since November 2011, as the world's second-biggest...

    Big U.S. Fleet Nears Disputed Islands, But What For? By Kirk Spitzer | September 30, 2012 TOKYO – It’s probably just a coincidence; no need to worry yet. But the U.S. has quietly assembled a powerful air, land and sea armada not far from where Japan and China are squaring off over disputed islands in the East China Sea. Two Navy aircraft carrier battle groups and a Marine Corps air-ground task force have begun operating in the Western Pacific, within easy reach of the Senkaku Islands. That’s where Japanese and Chinese patrol boats are engaged in an increasingly tense standoff.

    To get rich is glorious. – Deng Xiaoping As noted in last week’s column about the rising recognition by authorities in Germany about the virtues of gold, the gold standard is receiving impressive new recognition internationally. The GOP plank calling for a commission to study “possible ways to set a fixed value for the dollar” — with an unmistakable nod to gold — is the most prominent element of the 2012 GOP platform still being heard to “reverberate around the world.” Meanwhile, it continues to gain impressive momentum in the United States.

SNIPPET: "Gellar and her group are protesting the Jihad, which in definition is the religious duty of Muslims. According to the Dictionary of Islam, jihad is defined as “A religious war with those who are unbelievers in the mission of Muhammad . . . enjoined especially for the purpose of advancing Islam and repelling evil from Muslims.” The literal meaning of jihad, according to the British Broadcasting Network, “is struggle or effort, and it means much more than...
  • Obama Didn’t Save the Auto Industry: He Took Away 2,200 Dealerships and 120,000 Jobs

    Laycatholics ^ | October 1, 2012
    As a Catholic who works in the trade association profession in the auto industry it was unsettling to hear President Obama claim that he saved the auto industry. President Obama closed over 2,200 auto dealerships, which caused the losses of decades old family-owned businesses and over 120,000 jobs they provided. The closures were allowed to happen under the false notion that auto dealerships were an expense on their auto maker. The President ignored the fact that auto dealers are not an expense to automakers. Auto makers own none of what you see at auto dealerships. Auto dealers own all their...

    Bill Gertz has the grim news in the Washington Free Beacon: Hackers linked to China's government broke into one of the U.S. government's most sensitive computer networks, breaching a system used by the White House Military Office for nuclear commands, according to defense and intelligence officials familiar with the incident. One official said the cyber breach was one of Beijing's most brazen cyber attacks against the United States and highlights a failure of the Obama administration to press China on its persistent cyber attacks. Disclosure of the cyber attack also comes amid heightened tensions in Asia, as the Pentagon moved...

    Far East: Wars have started over less weighty issues than the sovereignty of islands in the East China Sea called Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China. They are barely rocks above water, but they sit atop valuable resources and are rapidly becoming a flash point as a rising power confronts one whose sun has set. These islands have become involved in a three-way tug of war between China, Taiwan and Japan with each sending fishing boats, even armed vessels, to the area. Private boats from Japan recently journeyed to the Senkakus to plant the Japanese flag one more time....
