  • Clinton Turned Away High-Level Chinese Defector to Assist Beijing Leaders

    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. Instead of sheltering Wang and granting him political asylum, Clinton agreed to turn him over to Chinese authorities in Beijing, and claimed he was not qualified for American...

    Recently released emails appear to further show a direct connection between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, including efforts to get foundation donors seats to an official lunch with Chinese President Hu Jintao. In emails dated December 2010, Clinton State Department aide Huma Abedin and then-top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band discussed potential guests for the lunch with the Chinese president — including three executives from groups that had donated millions to the foundation, according to an ABC News report late Saturday. Among the possible guests discussed were Bob McCann, then-president of...

    A series of newly released State Department emails obtained by ABC News offers fresh insight on direct contact between the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton's inner circle while she was Secretary of State. The emails -– released as part of a public records lawsuit by conservative group Citizens United and shared exclusively with ABC -- reveal what the group claims is new evidence Foundation allies received special treatment. In one December 2010 email chain with Clinton's closest aide Huma Abedin, then-top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band offers names for a State Department lunch with Chinese President Hu Jintao scheduled for...

    Inside the infamous Ferrari crash that brought down Ling Jihua Staff Reporter 2015-01-01 13:29 (GMT+8) More stunning details have been revealed about the infamous Ferrari crash that killed the only son of fallen senior Chinese official Ling Jihua and sent his once promising political career into a tailspin. Ling, best known as the "political fixer" of former president Hu Jintao, has been placed under a probe for unspecified "serious discipline violations, according to a statement from the Central Inspection for Discipline Inspection, the country's top anti-graft watchdog. The 58-year-old once appeared destined for a seat on the Communist Party's elite...

    Obama, Hu toast 'strategic mutual trust' at state dinnerBy Christina Wilkie - 01/19/11 10:30 PM ET President Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao toasted U.S. and Chinese collaboration and mutual interests on Wednesday night at a festive state dinner for 225 guests at the White House. Their toasts marked the high point of an evening notable for its strict adherence to the protocol and symbolism valued in Chinese culture, but which, at the same time, managed to fulfill the Chinese delegation's request for a thoroughly American dinner party. Guests dined on a meal of pear salad, lobster, ribeye steak and...

    The Washington Times ^ | November 11, 2011 | Jeffrey T. Kuhner
    President Obama is creating a post-American world - one that is ushering in the dominance of China. Mr. Obama is fostering U.S. economic and military decline while simultaneously empowering Beijing’s rise to superpower status. China’s communists are on the march. Unless Americans wake up to the growing threat, both internal and external, our victory in the Cold War will have been useless. This is the disturbing theme of “Bowing to Beijing: How Barack Obama Is Hastening America’s Decline and Ushering a Century of Chinese Domination,” by Brett M. Decker, editorial page editor of The Washington Times, and William C. Triplett...

    As we watch Italy's 10-year bond yields near 7.5pc and threaten to detonate the explosive charge on €1.9 trillion of debt, it is time for the world to reimpose order. You cannot allow the biggest bankruptcy in history to run its course – with calamitous domino implications – before all options have been exhausted. One can only guess what is happening in the great global centres of power, but it would not surprise me if US President Barack Obama and China's Hu Jintao start to intervene very soon, in unison and with massive diplomatic force. One can imagine joint telephone...

    Miffed Kim Jong-il Pares Down Entourage for Meeting with Hu North Korean leader Kim Jong-il's entourage to a meeting with Chinese President Hu Jintao on Thursday was severely pared down, apparently because Kim is sulking after his hopes for Chinese investment in his backward country did not materialize. According to the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency on Thursday, Kim was accompanied by just three officials -- Deputy Premier Kang Sok-ju, Kim Yong-il, a former premier and now party secretary for international affairs, and First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan. But Hu Jintao attended the summit along with nine other...

    Clinton Can't Say if Obama Asked Hu About Forced Abortions Washington, DC -- When China President Hu Jintao visited Washington, D.C. weeks ago, pro-life advocates pressed President Barack Obama and his administration to ask the foreign leader about the problem of forced abortions on Chinese women. In a new hearing in the House of Representatives, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton couldn't say whether Obama brought up the massive human rights abuse millions of Chinese women endure if they break the country's one-child family planning rules.

    How to evaluate the results of last week’s China-U.S. summit in Washington? Improbably, the key for the entire event may lie in what is usually the least memorable portion of these carefully choreographed occasions: the cultural program at the concluding state banquet. During the dinner’s musical interlude and following a duet with American jazz musician Herbie Hancock, Chinese pianist Lang Lang treated the assembled dignitaries to a solo of what he described as “a Chinese song: ‘My Motherland.’” (You can watch this on YouTube.) The Chinese delegation was clearly delighted: Chinese President and Communist Party chief Hu Jintao, stone-faced for...

    Chinese President Hu Jintao had an embarrassing moment in mid-January when his military flight-tested a new tactical aircraft during a visit by U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates. Several features of the plane looked remarkably similar to America’s top-of-the-line F-22 fighter, and yet somehow leaders of the People’s Liberation Army air force managed to not mention to Hu that the test was happening. So the Chinese leader ended up learning about it from Gates. The episode suggested that although Hu is formally in charge of the Chinese military, he doesn’t know what it is doing much of the time

    So that lavish state dinner President Obama hosted for Chinese President Hu Jintao last week? Turns out it was an even worse decision than previously thought. Not only did Obama honor a regime of human-rights abusers, but it turns out they weren’t even appreciative. According to the Epoch Times, a pianist at the event played a well-known Chinese propaganda song that’s about defeating the U.S. in a war. And it sounds like the Chinese government may have known the song would be played beforehand: "Lang Lang the pianist says he chose it. Chairman Hu Jintao recognized it as soon as...

    This week during a joint news conference with Chinese President Hu Jintao in a Neville Chamberlin moment President Obama declared “I absolutely believe that China’s peaceful rise is good for the world, and it’s good for America.” Obama continued with, “We want to sell you planes, we want to sell you cars, we want to sell you software. And as President Hu and his government refocus the economy on expanding domestic demand, that offers opportunities for U.S. businesses, which ultimately translates into U.S. jobs.”Naive?

    On the occasion of Chinese dictator Hu Jintao's visit to America, we should use this as more than a chance for President Obama to practice bowing to foreigners. This is a great time to dispel a myth about the Middle Kingdom. Myth: China is destined to be a super power on par with the United States. Like Japan in the 1980s, China has made tremendous economic strides that thrill economists, academicians and historians alike. Unlike Japan, China is not constrained by a pacifist Constitution or recent tradition. However, it does not follow that China will be able either to continue...

    WASHINGTON -- Who did you think would come out on top if you put a tiger and a dove in the same room together to work out their differences? Yes, those were white bird feathers sticking out of the tiger's mouth at the lavish state dinner hosted by President Obama at the White House this week. President Hu Jintao is a Tiger Leader. That's kind of like a Tiger Mother, only less nurturing and more demanding. President Obama is a Dove Leader. He speaks endlessly and carries no stick. And he likes to do a lot of bowing and scraping....

    LAS VEGAS -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid branded Chinese President Hu Jintao a "dictator" on a local TV talk show on Tuesday night, a remark likely to make the start of Hu's first state visit to Washington, D.C., awkward for President Obama at a moment when the U.S. is trying to ease tensions with the Asian power. Reid, Obama's top legislative ally and Congress' most powerful Democrat, was responding to a question from "Face To Face" host Jon Ralston about the December compromise that extended the Bush-era tax cuts. The recently reelected Nevada senator veered off on a tangent...
