Crowd Prepares to Bus off to “Welcome” Dictator Xi

I was honored to give a bon-voyage to this group of Vietnamese American Patriots headed to protest Xi Jinpings summit with Obama. Nobody appreciates their freedom as much as Orange County’s Vietnamese community!

I asked them to tell Xi “YOU ARE NOT WELCOME IN CALIFORNIA!” and to tell Obama, “THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT SHOULD NOT HUDDLE WITH A CRIMINAL DICTATOR!”

SoCal Vietnamese-American Community on Xi Jinping Visit

PRESS RELEASE

 

For Immediate Release

June 5th, 2013

 

Vietnamese-American Community Rally

to Protest Xi Jinping

Date: Friday & Saturday June 07th and 08th, 2013

Place: The Annerberg Retreat at Sunnylands Estate, Rancho Mirage, CA

 

Considering that:

– Vietnamese people, Tibetans, Mongolians, Koreans, and Japanese…truly understand the meaning of “China Dream” because for thousands of years, China has dreamed to conquer and wipe out neighboring countries and races for Chinese expansion.

– Recently, to empower itself, China sent military spies and used cyber-espionage to steal US secret defense technology and business information causing tremendous damage to both U.S. national security and economy.

– China’s infiltration of toxic foods and unsafe products worldwide has caused epidemics and human casualties, by disregarding the safety of the U.S. consumers and the world.

– China claims ownership of 80 percent of the Southeast Asia Sea disregarding the right of adjacent countries such as Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei…under the rules UNCLOS 1982 (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea).

– China claims ownership of the Senkaku Islands which lawfully belongs to Japan.

– China claims ownership of the Panatag Shoal’s Islands which is clearly within the territory of the Philippines.

– China’s allies, supports, and directs North Korea regime which has threatened the US, South Korea, Japan and other neighboring countries.

– China invaded and illegally took over the Paracel Islands in 1974 and part of Spratly Islands in 1988 which rightfully belonged to Vietnam for hundred of years, while killing 138 Vietnamese.

– China constantly harasses and kills Vietnamese fishermen while they work inside the 200 nautical miles of Vietnam Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

The Vietnamese American Community in USA will stage a rally at Sunnylands, the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Estate, 37977 Bob Hope Drive, Rancho Mirage, California 92270 to protest against China’s presence when President Obama meets Xi Jinping on June 7- 8, 2013.

There will be a hunger strike against China for World Peace that will take place at the end of the rally on Friday June 07th, 2013. We call upon President Obama to act as a World Leader to continue leading the Democracy and Human Rights Movement that is now spreading out into the the world and reaching every oppressed country; Further, we ask Obama to demand and to guide China to respect the security and peace within the region as well as to work with the international body for a better future for mankind and to refrain from bullying other countries for China’s own interests.

In the nineties, our former President Ronald Reagan helped knock down the Communist Walls in East Germany and liberated Russia and the Eastern Bloc of Communist Countries, leaving him the legacy of a true World Leader. We sincerely hope that President Obama will follow a similar path and ingrain for himself such a legacy to liberate the rest of the world from the plague of Communism and Terrorism.

Protest Info For Xi Jinping Summit

The following info provided by Ann Lau (one of LA’s best human rights organizers) for those able to make it out to the desert tomorrow. If you can, make it out there and let President Obama know that we do NOT want him meeting with dictators in our state.  (I will be addressing a rally in Little Saigon tomorrow). At the very least post an Ai Wei Wei salute to the Communist Party on your Facebook page.

It’s Time, indeed

Zhu Yufu was sentenced to seven years in a Chinese Prison for writing this Poem entitled “It’s Time.”

ZYFLet us read this, the day after the Tiananmen anniversary and remember who we are dealing with when we see Xi and Obama hug each other and talk about “progress” this week at Sunnylands. There is nothing to celebrate in this “summit,” where the leader of the free world will host the head of a criminal gang that attacks American businesses, steals at least million jobs every year, brutalizes its own people and is preparing for war against America and nearly every nation in Asia. This is a humiliation for the American people.

 

It’s time, people of China! It’s time.
The Square belongs to everyone.
With your own two feet
It’s time to head to the Square and make your choice.

It’s time, people of China! It’s time.
A song belongs to everyone.
From your own throat
It’s time to voice the song in your heart.

It’s time, people of China! It’s time.
China belongs to everyone.
Of your own will
It’s time to choose what China shall be.

translated by A. E. Clark

Visual Artists Guild Tiananmen Commemoration Event

Tonight my son and I attended the Visual Artists Guild Annual Tiananmen Square Commemoration and Award Dinner.

event

 

Those advocates of democracy and human rights that were honored tonight (in absentia) included:

Wu Lihong , environmental activists who served three years for speaking out against the pollution of Lake Tai.

Dhondup Wangchen, serving six year in prison for making a documentary film that discusses Tibetan attitudes to China’s 2008 Olympic spectacle.  His wife explained that he has contracted hepatitis in prison and she has been told that he is losing his vision. She begged the U.S. government to stand up and demand his release so he can rejoin his family. Below you see her crying next to his photo after accepting the award on his behalf. It was heart breaking. Please sign the petition to free him.

wangchen

The good folks at Amnesty International are supporting the Wangchen family in the U.S. James Zimmerman, from that group, offered a summary of their annual China report; which invariably includes the statement that China continues, year after year, to execute more people than the entire rest of the world combined.

Zhu Yufu, doing an additional seven years in prison for “inciting subversion” by writing a poem entitled “It’s Time.” How ironically appropriate.

Hat’s off to event organizer Ann Lau, one of the most energetic and dedicated fighter for freedom that I have ever met.

Next month will see President Obama greeting Xi Jinping, the dictator behind this system at Annenberg estate near Palm Springs, California. We can expect him to make some extremely vague comment about human rights in a way that doesn’t “offend” his fascist guest and then he will move on to encouraging closer economic ties to China’s despotic regime. If you can, please come to Palm Springs June 7 & 8 to protest this meeting between the President of the United States and a common thug.

Meet the New Boss of China, Same as the Old Boss

On Valentine’s Day, President Obama hosted Chinese heir apparent, Xi Jinping in Washington. When the President of the United States invites a future dictator from a brutal regime to the White House he tacitly endorses China’s illegitimate succession process. This publicly undermines Chinese aspirations for freedom and devalues democracy for everyone on Earth.

 

During the White House visit, I took the opportunity to address the growing crowd of Tibetans protesting in front of the White House while many puzzled tourists looked on.  The average American is unwilling to stand up for Tibetan rights because they are unable to connect the dots between this far away and mysterious places with their own self-interest.

However, there is only one degree of separation between our current national misery and that of Tibet, because both of our problems stem from the same source: an unethical Chinese Communist Party hell-bent on exploiting anybody it can get its claws into. The brutal occupation of the peaceful Himalayan kingdom and the accompanying ethnic cleansing and religious repression is simply another manifestation of the lying, cheating, and tortured manipulation of trade rules that has left millions of Americans out of work and millions more stranded in low-wage, retail jobs.

Mr. Xi represents a government that only a large, multinational corporation could possibly love. Companies like WalMart and Apple have booked outsized profits for years by taking advantage of products made cheap through ill gotten control of the raw materials expropriated from China’s colonial victims like Tibet, Mongolia, and East Turkmentistan as well as the laborers kept under control by China’s jackboots. Meanwhile the 30-40 percent cost advantage these firms have obtained from China’s currency manipulation has closed some 57,000 factories in America since China joined the WTO in 2001. The fact that China has invested a disproportionate amount of its profits from this operation into advancing its brutal police state and building up a high-tech military to target its neighbors and American families need not concern folks like Jeff Imlet. Each year CEO of General Electric piles ever more $billions of hard earned American capital into Communist China despite the disappointing returns for his shareholders. And it obviously does not concern Mr. Obama, who in a particularly perverse act, appointed this master outsourcer to be America’s “job’s czar.”

It is therefore altogether fitting that Mr. Xi’s delegation visited an American business school –  the Graziadio School of Management at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. Having taught and studied for many years at another California business school, I’ve always been puzzled whenever American’s express surprise at the lack of ethics demonstrated by some top business leader caught with his pants down or stuffing his pockets with other people’s money. What should we expect when the faculties of our schools believe ethics is something you give a nod to with a one-quarter elective class and then go back to equations that maximize profits?

In academia, ethics is often presented as some fuzzy headed, politically correct affair that rejects objective standards of right and wrong, suggesting folks like China’s next brutal dictator might just be operating under “different cultural standards” that we must be sensitive to. Let us not offend China by suggesting Western standards – like the belief that the repression of labor is wrong or free speech is desirable – are superior to Communist ideals. Anyway, such qualitative discussions seem archaic to students once they’ve been convinced that all valuable business research can and should be reduced to econometric models and that real stories about actual people are of questionable value.

If you have any doubts about just how clueless and amoral academia has become consider this quote from Graziadio Dean, Linda A. Livingstone, “We are honored to host Vice President Xi Jinping’s delegation at the Graziadio School in the hope that our discussion and interaction will increase business opportunities and cooperation between our two countries.”

“Honored” to host the future leader of the political movement that has killed more people than any in the history of mankind. “Interaction” with the regime that has denied reproductive rights to 1/5 of the world’s women and induced hundreds of millions of coerced and sometimes even forced abortions and sterilizations. “Opportunities”  with a government that jails, beats and kills those who attempt to organize for higher wages or better conditions. “Cooperation” with the nation that is building a hidden nuclear submarine fleet specifically designed to pull up to the coast of Malibu and incinerate the rest of the U.S.

When Xi’s entourage visited the Port of Los Angeles after hanging with Pepperdine’s academic fifth column I had the opportunity to join a small group of Syrian’s protesting the disgusting fact that China had sold its UN Veto to support the brutal regime that is killing thousands of their friends and family. Of course, China has done this many times before to back up other customers of its hugely profitable weapons biz; folks like the crazy nuclear kings of North Korea, Zimbabwe’s brutal Mugabe, and the perpetrators of the Darfu massacres in Sudan. Apparently none of this presented a moral dilemma for the mayor of LA and the governor of California, both of whom could not wait to join in the love fest with the Middle Kingdom’s dictator in waiting and hand over more American jobs to China – while naturally claiming to be doing just the opposite. These guys have learned a lot about perception management from the communists.

Congratulations President Obama and Dean Livingstone. Please give my regards to your “honored” guest and pray that the Buddhists are flat out wrong about that Karma thing or you could be spending your next life in one of Xi’s many reduction through labor camps.
