    Senator Ted Cruz spoke out Wednesday against horrific forced abortions in China via its "totalitarian" one-child policy. In a speech on the Senate floor, he proposed "shaming" the one-party communist state by renaming the street on which the Chinese embassy is located after an imprisoned political dissident and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. During his remarks, Cruz called out Senator Dianne Feinsteins's objection to the passage of a resolution towards this end.Cruz began with China's one-child policy and forced abortions. He recalled the story of Feng Jianmei, who was abducted from her apartment in June of 2012 after her husband...

    ....Despite China's recent announcement that it was "abandoning" its longstanding one-child policy, critics have been quick to note that China is not abandoning anything and that the cosmetic change in policy signals no real change whatsoever in the way the Communist Party will continue to exercise despotic control over family life and reproduction, including through forced abortions and sterilizations.In speaking of the policy on the Senate floor Wednesday, Cruz had a poster-size photo brought out showing a woman with a dead child next to her on a hospital bed."I want to talk to you about Feng Jianmei," Cruz said.

    Even though the Communist Party of China is officially atheist, and the central government was once wary of religion, subtle signs and increasing activities show there is a changing attitude towards religion in order to unite China and its neighbors. In March last year, Chinese President Xi Jinping stood in the offices of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Paris, and extolled the profound impact Buddhism has had on China. "Buddhism originated in ancient India," said Xi, the leader of the officially atheist Communist Party of China. "After it was introduced into China, the religion went...

    Hackers from China breached the federal weather network recently, forcing cybersecurity teams to seal off data vital to disaster planning, aviation, shipping and scores of other crucial uses, officials said. The intrusion occurred in late September but officials gave no indication that they had a problem until Oct. 20, according to three people familiar with the hack and the subsequent reaction by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or NOAA, which includes the National Weather Service. Even then, NOAA did not say its systems were compromised.

As the Machiavellian saga continues to unfold, the Chinese dissident Web site Boxun has reported that Wang uncovered a plot by his former boss, Bo Xilai, and a senior government official, Zhou Yongkang, to seize power from Xi Jinping, heir-apparent to the reins of Communist Party leadership.

The guidelines by the All China Journalists' Association are aimed at both traditional and online media and are another sign of Xi's politically conservative agenda. "Let us hold high the banner of socialist core values," the report said, using the party's term for orthodox beliefs. Xi has espoused old school Maoism as he seeks to court powerful elements in the party. Like...

    The past two years have seen a number of developments with the military aircraft programs of the People¬ís Republic of China¬ís aerospace industry. The twofold focus of these efforts has been to expand the export portfolio for PRC-made weapon systems, while at the same time pushing the development of indigenous programs that would reduce Chinese dependence on foreign (mostly Russian) critical technologies and subsystems¬Ėalthough this could be a rocky road if it ends up competing directly with Russian industry in export markets. The results on both scores have been mixed. The message coming from the central government in Beijing continues...

    CAIN’S VISION FOR FOREIGN POLICY & NATIONAL SECURITY The Americas Mexico: Friend and Partner Mexico is a friend in need. Our southern neighbor is struggling with drug-related violence that has claimed an estimated 40,000 lives over the past several years. By standing with Mexico now to help it solve its increasingly severe economic and security problems, we will help solve the problem of illegal immigration at home. Some 40% of Mexicans believe Mexico is a failed state. This helps explain why so many are seeking to emigrate. With declining oil reserves, a looming water shortage in Mexico City, and youth...

    Will work for national honor. We don¬ít know if the Chinese stonemasons who built the new Martin Luther King memorial got the job by shoving a sign bearing that message into the faces of its overseers. We know only that unpaid, nonunion, foreign nationals built the massive shrine on the Mall. They toiled for ¬ďnational honor¬Ē and ¬ďto bring glory to the Chinese people,¬Ē one of them explained to an investigator hired by the DC-area stonemasons promised the job. Happy Labor Day! Martin Luther King died in Memphis supporting a strike by the city¬ís garbagemen. So it¬ís not a stretch...

    ...Although the PLA is contending with a growing array of missions, Taiwan remains its main strategic direction.China continued modernizing its military in 2010, with a focus on Taiwan contingencies, even as cross-Strait relations improved. The PLA seeks the capability to deter Taiwan independence and influence Taiwan to settle the dispute on Beijingís terms. In pursuit of this objective, Beijing is developing capabilities intended to deter, delay, or deny possible U.S. support for the island in the event of conflict. The balance of cross-Strait military forces and capabilities continues to shift in the mainlandís favor. Over the past decade, Chinaís military...

    http://internet-haganah.com/harchives/007413.html "Whither the jihadi forums?" SNIPPET: "There are currently only three jihadi forums that are sufficiently active and well-connected to be of any interest whatsoever. Why we claim to be on the verge of defeating al-Qaida while simultaneously watching passively as they use these forums to regroup and regenerate is beyond me. These are the forums three: ē al-Fidaa, a forum created by al-Qaida core. That it is directly linked to al-Qaida by definition moves it to the top of the list. Current membership: 2,462, all of whom can be considered "active" if only because they just joined the forum....

    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 Americaís top-of-the-line F-22 fighter, and yet somehow leaders of the Peopleís 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 doesnít know what it is doing much of the time

    For nearly ten years, I have been arguing that China may well be the first example of a mature fascism in power. The highest praise imaginable has been bestowed on this theory, by the Peopleís Republic itself. When I published an updated version of my theory (first published in the Wall Street Journal in 2002 and reprised in different form in NRO thereafter) in the Far East Economic Review in May, 2008, the entire issue was banned in China. On the occasion of Mr. Huís visit to Washington, it seems appropriate to revisit this theme, which seems to me to...
