"Lawmakers" only want to make sure the illegal Chinese money keeps flowing to their campaigns.

The Sino Republican Superpacs will all be vying for attention.

Al Gore, Shillary, Bill, and the DNC -- who sold American secrets to the Chinese -- aren't republicans.

They're your kind of subversive commie traitors.

NUKE SCIENTIST EXCHANGE PLANNED
December 21, 2011, By Bill Gertz, Washington Times
http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/dec/21...

Deputy Energy Secretary Daniel B. Poneman is working on a major Obama administration initiative that would renew scientist exchanges between U.S. nuclear weapons laboratories and Chinese nuclear facilities.

Critics say the plan is similar to an exchange program in the 1990s that sent U.S. nuclear scientists to China and produced one of the worst cases of nuclear espionage. Secrets about every deployed warhead in the U.S. arsenal were compromised, including the W-88 small nuclear warhead deployed on submarine-launched missiles.

“We’ve seen this movie before, and it has a bad ending,” one official said.

China's Hu Urges Navy to Prepare for Combat -- 12/7/2011
http://randyforbes.house.gov/Blog/...

"The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Navy should "accelerate its transformation and modernization in a sturdy way, and make extended preparations for military combat in order to make greater contributions to safeguard national security," he (President Hu) said...In a translation of Hu’s comments, the official Xinhua news agency quoted the president as saying China’s navy should ‘make extended preparations for warfare." -- Chinese President Hu Jintao

In the last decade we have seen China make double-digit increases in its annual defense budget while asserting to the international community that their intentions have been inherently peaceful and their efforts merely defensive. In stark contrast, we now see China’s president urging military leadership to prepare for “warfare.” Not since the Soviet Union has a nation aspiring to be a peer competitor of the United States publicly used such strong, targeted rhetoric. Considering this and other statements from Chinese officials, we must be wary of the true intent of China’s military buildup and modernization. As Admiral Willard, Commander of U.S. Pacific Command recently said publicly “this is not a world where the uninformed are going to survive for very long.”

China's aircraft carrier “is not the beginning of the end; it is the end of the beginning.”-- 12/8/2011

U.S. Naval War College professor Andrew Erickson released a new analysis of China's new aircraft carrier. In the report, he states,“This is not the beginning of the end; it is the end of the beginning. To realize its ambitious for the future, China had to start somewhere.” Also, from the report:

Eye phased-array radar, a new point-defense missile system, and a new close-in weapon system. The Dragon Eye can reportedly track up to a hundred targets while engaging fifty simultaneously, detect targets out to sixty-five nautical miles (120 kilometers), and track targets out to 48.6 nautical miles (ninety kilometers).

Know Thine Enemy: China And Obama's Defense Cuts
January 8, 2012, By Paul Roderick Gregory
http://www.forbes.com/sites/paulroderickgrego...

Excerpt:

China will choose a new leadership in 2012, culminating a power struggle between reformists and those who favor a return to neo-Maoism. If the latter group prevails, the level of hostilities with China will intensify beyond their current uneasy status quo.

China enjoys huge advantages over the former USSR that render it a more formidable military competitor than the USSR was....

The list of countries potentially hostile to the United States – Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Syria, and Russia — is frighteningly long and could increase on moment’s notice to include Pakistan or any number of Arab Islamist states. We already compete with China for controlling military presence in the Pacific. China could decide to take Taiwan by force, or China’s fragile peace with India could break.

Just how large is the Chinese military, and how will we stack up once the Obama Pentagon cuts kick in? The facts suggest that China’s military power will equal our own in a relatively brief period of time thanks to Obama’s downgrading of U.S. military power.

The facts are simple arithmetic, although they are somewhat complicated by the fact that China’s official defense budget reports only a portion of its military outlays. We really do not know what China spends on defense, despite government efforts to penetrate its secrets.

By 2015, the United States and China will be spending roughly equal percentages of their annual output on defense. Given the uncertainties surrounding China’s defense budget, China will likely be spending a higher percentage.

Within less than five years, the United States will no longer be the world’s dominant military power. China will be our equal. In U.S. politics, some may welcome the loss of military dominance. Others will fear that we will inhabit a more dangerous new world in which we are less able to protect ourselves.

China sells missiles to Iran in violation of UN sanctions
November 2, 2011, By Bill Gertz
http://p.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/nov/2/...

China is continuing to provide advanced missiles and other conventional arms to Iran and may be doing so in violation of U.N. sanctions against the Tehran regime, according to a draft report by the congressional U.S.-China Commission.

According to the report, which will be made public Nov. 16, China sold $312 million worth of arms to Iran, second only to Russia, after Congress passed the Iran Freedom Support Act in 2006 that allows the U.S. government to sanction foreign companies that provide advanced arms to Iran.

The report says China also is supporting North Korea's military and providing economic and technical assistance to Pyongyang.

The report concludes:“Despite Beijing’s stated claim to be acting as a responsible major power, China continues to place its national interests ahead of regional stability by providing economic and diplomatic support to countries that undermine international security.”

As if that ever happened.

LOL!!

More like complicit espionage from the Bush Crime Family as they sold the Chinese AND the Iranians our secrets- why don you think Iran is so close to going nuclear?

Halliburton and Koch Industries selling our intellectual property with the blessings of the Bush Crime Family.

They have a track record as well- look no further than Donald Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam Hussein before selling him weapons.

Republicans the party of the elite rich and big corporations do not care about China's human rights because there constituents use China's child labor and abuse of their people for corporate profits. Republicans do NOT care about human rights and that is a fact.
