Who is helping him hide from the authorities after he fled house arrest last week? Is he in American hands in Beijing?
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be stepping into this mess to attend two days of talks in Beijing this week. The Strategic and Economic Dialogue, as this meeting is called is part of the administration’s policy to manage America’s relations with China through regular discussions on a wide spectrum of issues.
Again a meeting in a foreign country is being overshadowed by shenanigans of others. In this case a prostitute is not involved.
“The Chinese government regards foreign criticism of its human rights policies and practices as undue interference in its internal affairs, and it will almost certainly use the occasion of the talks to drive that point home, diplomats in Beijing said. In fact, the Chinese might go forward with the planned talks specifically to have the chance to confront Mrs. Clinton about it.” NYT April 29, 2012
Mr. Chen, 40, became famous because of his strong opposition to forced abortions and sterilizations conducted as part of China’s policy of limiting families to one child per couple. NYT April 29, 2012
The presumptive challenger in next year’s election in the United States of America stated, “Our country must play a strong role in urging reform in China and supporting those fighting for the freedoms we enjoy.”
Why must we always interfere in the affairs of other nations?
President Barack Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser, John O. Brennan was asked about Chen Guangcheng’s whereabouts on “Fox News Sunday,” and he declined to discuss anything. He did acknowledged that “the United States is “working very closely with the individuals involved in this.”
Continuing to meddle in China’s policy he went on to say the administration seeks an appropriate balance when advocating for human rights in strategically important countries like China.
“I think, in all instances, the president tries to balance our commitment to human rights, making sure that the people throughout the world have the ability to express themselves freely and openly,” Mr. Brennan said, “but also that we can continue to carry out our relationships with key countries overseas.” NYT April 29, 2012

This cartoon by Joe Heller, Green Bay (Wis)Press-Gazette is for those who did not know the background of these two men who are vying for the presidency of the United States. See previous post titled, ”Who Loves Dogs the Most?”
Neither one seems to care about the welfare of animals. Need I say more?

These Rich Republican beggars, I would rather say an expletive, who are running for the nomination of their party for the right to challenge Barack Obama in next year’s election are beginning to show their weaknesses by attacking each other. The Mitt, says he knows how it feels, to be about to lose your job. ”I know what it’s like to to worry whether you’re going to get fired. There were a couple of of times I wondered whether I was going to get a pink slip.
Santorum claims in America we don’t have classes.
Oh…really? We might not have castes but we certainly do have classes. The middle is where everybody belongs, because we were all born equal, with equal rights. Right? The couple I saw on Woodhaven Blvd, wearing backpacks holding a sign, they also belong to my class. I was not able to read the woman’s plea, because the llight turned red suddenly, and by the time I stopped the car safely, she had already walked past my car. I saw her through my side mirror hesitate for a second walking back to me to beg for something, but I had just washed my car and it looked too nice for her to bother asking me for anything. I did enjoy their use of a prop to get sympathy. A nice dog whose owner was wrapping him up in a blue blanket. The dog was in a sitting position allowing his master to keep him warm. The owner was sitting on his backpack. Now I wonder if these are vestiges of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Yes Santorum is right,these two are in my class.
How about Newt Gingrich? “Could we drop a little bit of the pious baloney?” He now seems to be the voice of truth. He appears, when he speaks to be knowledgeable, but how can I know if what he says is the truth, since I’m an ignorant man.
Then there is Ron Paul who I can’t decipher. Is everything I hear about him false? ”They think I’m a dangerous person, and I admit it!” He doesn’t even think he can be President of the United States of America. ” Mr. Not really…” why are you running? Is he the NYMets of baseball? The man is so honest and transparent Dave Letterman says he’s like the kind of guy you keep for observation.
John Huntsman, the underdog who speaks to us in Chinese. He was an ambassador to China, under Obama. He took the post because it was his duty. He had just been elected governor of Utah by an overwhelming majority when he accepted the challenge. He has two sons serving in the military, under Obama. ”It’s their duty to support their commander in chief,” we are reminded by their father.
Then there were Michele Bachman, “The Hair” and and Mr. 999. One is arrogant and the others are fools. I’m so glad for the power of women scorned or harassed, because they bite like Pit Bulls and won’t let go until the prey succumbs. Too bad for Mr. Godfather Pizza. I was enjoying his vehement denials week after week.
Michele, too bad for your poor showing in your home state. This was a statement she heard loud and clear. Thank God, because all I could see in her, was her beauty. Her voice never penetrated my mind.
And last but not least, “The Hair.” He was so arrogant as to think he could broker his New York Real Estate Power into the role of kingmaker. Newt actually paid a visit to the king at his Tower. He then thought since he was out of the race, why not moderate a debate. It was scheduled but being boycotted by most of the candidates, forced its cancellation. Oh what rage. The hair almost flew off his head. He then had no other choice but to drop the idea of being a moderator. Still seething, he dropped out of the Republican Party to become an Independent. Earthquakes hit New York. I felt the shock down in the subway with my fellow Middle Class men. ”‘The Hair’ might run for President on the Independent Line,” I could imagine the headlines in the NY Post, thus taking away votes from the lucky man who garners the most votes in the primaries to be selected to challenge Barack Obama, thereby guaranteeing this “One Term President” a second chance to “change” America. But who reads the New York Post anyway.
God Bless America because the people are beginning to awaken. Just like in Tunisia, the birth of the Arab Spring, an awakening of the people will be dangerous for the country. I for one, am tired of the rhetoric, the accusations, the churlish behavior, and childish lies. The Congress and the House —what have they done to bring America back on her feet? Nothing! She is still on her knees awaiting a helping hand from all parties. I hope next year’s elections actually produce positive, constructive changes. Oh, by the way I just realized I forgot Rick Perry. Commerce, that’s the answer. Oops.
