Democratic Hypocrisy Runs Amuck!
History repeats itself once again. Those who don’t pay attention to history are inclined to repeat it, as the saying goes.
First of all, it’s illegal for any foreign country, especially those with a communist form of government such as China to contribute to U.S. presidential campaigns. This rule of law did not apply to the Clinton-Gore campaign in 1996 or now to Hillary’s campaign in 2007.
One of the greatest frustrations for conservatives during the Bill Clinton-Al Gore presidential campaign in 1996 was the reluctance or refusal of the US Attorney General Janet Reno to enforce the FEC campaign contribution laws. Republicans supplicated themselves to Reno to represent all Americans not just the President. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
It resulted in 120 Chinese contributors to Bill Clinton’s campaign illegally donating money - most of them evading prosecution by conveniently escaping from the U.S. just in the nick of time. When the dusk settled over the illegal foreign campaign irregularities, 22 Democrat donors were convicted in the Chinagate probe, the rest got away without Reno pursuing their arrest.
During the Clinton campaign of 1996, the People’s Liberation Army launched a massive campaign to buy influence in the Democratic Party that would guide military hardware and technology Beijing’s way. Reports by federal investigators discovered that the PLA used Chinese agents, spies living in the U.S. as bagmen to funnel cash to the Clinton-Gore campaigns and gain immediate access to the White House and sensitive government agencies.
In 1998, in the course of plea bargaining with the Justice Department, a Chinese bagman named Johnny Chung confessed that at least $100,000 of his contributions to the DNC and the Clinton-Gore Campaign had indeed come from a Chinese aerospace executive – who have given him $300,000. This same person happened to also be the daughter of the PLA’s top general and a key member of China’s Communist Party. Chung told prosecutors that the $300,000 had been ordered into his bank account by the head of the Chinese military intelligence.
During the 1996 campaign, Chung was a regular White House visitor. He visited the White House 57 times and during one visit even handed Hillary Clinton’s chief of Staff a check of $50,000. Three days earlier, he had received a $150,000 wire transfer from the Bank of China.
For you left wing conspiracy theory nuts out there, all of the above information is factual and documented; a far cry from the Bush conspiracy theories floating around today that Bush had his Nazi like civil engineers destroy the levies to kill poor Blacks during Katrina or that Bush was behind 9/11. No, what I’m saying is actual documented facts with photos of Chung with the Clintons at the White House together as proof.
Here’s another example of corruption in the Democratic Party. Most alarmingly, Schwartz persuaded the Clinton administration to give his Loral Space and Communications subsidiary a waiver to use inexpensive Chinese rockets to launch U.S. satellites into space. Loral at the same time helped Beijing – over the objections of the U.S. intelligence community – improve its commercial space launchers. That in turn, helped make its nuclear-tipped missiles more reliable as ICBMs, several of which are aimed at U.S. cities. Schwartz, who was Clinton's top donor in the 1996 election cycle, insists his contributions did not buy policy changes regarding China. He says the favorable treatment he got from the administration was merely a "coincidence."
Where was the outrage? Suppressed, is the answer. Attorney General Reno and her cohorts, the complicit liberal press successfully protected their president. The Democratic Party and liberal press again sacrificed national security in favor of keeping their side in office. Today the liberal press has all but expunged the memory of Chinagate, but fortunately for all Americans, talk radio has kept the memory alive. Thank God for Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingram and others as gate keepers of the real truth.
Everyone forgets that the illegal Chinese campaign funds in the 90’s were also used to finance TV adds to attack Newt Gingrich, Speaker of the House by the DNC, spearheaded by Bonner. Close to 100 absurd, nugatory charges were brought against him. One of the charges brought against Gingrich illustrates the mindset of Bonner. Gingrich taught a two week history course at the University of Georgia on American history. Bonner brought charges against him he for politicizing his course with Republican doctrine. What? I watched the entire course telecasted on PBS. Gingrich lectured on American history and how our great forefathers made incredible sacrifices in order to build our great nation. To the left wing, that philosophy of saluting our American heroes is insidious to their way of thinking. I wanted to scream when I heard the ridiculous charges made against him and of course the charges were found baseless. The only offense out of 100 charges they could find fault with Gingrich was for receiving funds for a book he was writing while still holding office. He was forced to resign and the Republican Party has never been the same without his brilliant leadership.
2007 Democratic Campaign
Now, the 2007 presidential campaign is in full tilt and history is repeating itself once again. It’s now reported that a corrupt Chinese donor to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has close ties to an aerospace mogul accused of placing his business interest before national security by sharing missile secrets with Beijing during the Clinton administration. Native Hong Kong, Chinese-American businessman Hsu has contributed to Democratic campaigns including close to one million to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The problem for the Democrats is that Hsu recently turned himself in on fraud charges, skipped bail and then was captured on a train in Colorado.
Now we find out the Hsu’s various American based companies listed on federal campaign filing with the FEC no longer exist, and indeed might be fictitious. Is anyone shocked by this? Hsu filed for bankruptcy last year, so it begs the question, where did he get the resources to contribute so much money?
The liberal press will not connect the dots that would normally lead any rationally thinking person to suspect that Clinton and the DNC are back to the same ole business with the way they raise funds. These illegal actions are feared to lead to foreign countries again gaining access to our military intelligence, concessions in trade agreements, etc. – Have the Chinese prospered due to the financially influencing the Democrats? Is it any wonder that China supplies over 80% of all toys sold in American stores?
Certainly there are more Hsu's out there. There needs to be a full scale investigation of all DNC contributors.
