Meet Your New Boss: Buying Large Employers Will Enable China To Dominate 1000s Of U.S. Communities

The United States - A Colony Of ChinaAre you ready for a future where China will employ millions of American workers and dominate thousands of small communities all over the United States?  Such a future would be unimaginable to many Americans, but the truth is that it is already starting to happen.  Chinese acquisition of U.S. businesses set a new all-time record last year, and it is on pace to absolutely shatter that record this year.  Meanwhile, China is voraciously gobbling up real estate and is establishing economic beachheads all over America.  If China continues to build economic power inside the United States, it will eventually become the dominant economic force in thousands of small communities all over the nation.  Just think about what the Smithfield Foods acquisition alone will mean.  Smithfield Foods is the largest pork producer and processor in the world.  It has facilities in 26 U.S. states and it employs tens of thousands of Americans.  It directly owns 460 farms and has contracts with approximately 2,100 others.  But now a Chinese company has bought it for $4.7 billion, and that means that the Chinese will now be the most important employer in dozens of rural communities all over America.  If you don’t think that this is important, you haven’t been paying much attention to what has been going on in the world.  Thanks in part to our massively bloated trade deficit with China, the Chinese have trillions of dollars to spend.  They are only just starting to exercise their economic muscles.

And it is important to keep in mind that there is often not much of a difference between “the Chinese government” and “Chinese corporations”.  In 2011, 43 percent of all profits in China were produced by companies that the Chinese government had a controlling interest in.  Americans are accustomed to thinking of “government” and “business” as being separate things, but in China they are often one and the same.  Even when there is a separation in ownership, the reality is that no major Chinese corporation is going to go against the authority and guidance of the Chinese government.  The relationship between government and business in China is much different than it is in the United States.

Over the past several years, Chinese companies have become increasingly aggressive.  Last year a Chinese company spent $2.6 billion to purchase AMC entertainment – one of the largest movie theater chains in the United States.  Now that Chinese company controls more movie ticket sales than anyone else in the world.  At the time, that was the largest acquisition of a U.S. firm by a Chinese company, but now the Smithfield Foods deal has greatly surpassed that.

But China is not just relying on acquisitions to expand its economic power.  The truth is that “economic beachheads” are being established all over America.  For example, Golden Dragon Precise Copper Tube Group, Inc. recently broke ground on a $100 million plant in Thomasville, Alabama.  I am sure that many of the residents of Thomasville, Alabama will be glad to have jobs, but it will also become yet another community that will now be heavily dependent on communist China.

And guess where else Chinese companies are putting down roots?

Detroit.

Yes, the poster child for the deindustrialization of America is being invaded by the Chinese.  The following comes from a recent CNBC article

Dozens of companies from China are putting down roots in Detroit, part of the country’s steady push into the American auto industry.

Chinese-owned companies are investing in American businesses and new vehicle technology, selling everything from seat belts to shock absorbers in retail stores, and hiring experienced engineers and designers in an effort to soak up the talent and expertise of domestic automakers and their suppliers.

If you recently purchased an “American-made vehicle”, there is a really good chance that it has Chinese parts in it.

In fact, it is becoming harder and harder to get auto parts that are actually made in America by American companies.  A lot of those companies are dying off.  One example of this is a battery maker that had received $132 million from the federal government that was recently gobbled up by a huge Chinese corporation…

Industry analysts are hard-pressed to put a number on the Chinese suppliers operating in the United States. “We simply don’t know how many there are,” said David Andrea, an official with the Original Equipment Suppliers Association, a trade organization for auto parts makers.

In one of the more prominent deals, the Wanxiang Group bought most of the assets of the battery maker A123 Systems, which filed for bankruptcy last year despite receiving $132 million of $249 million in federal grants to build two factories in Michigan.

Congressional Republicans criticized the deal, saying A123’s technology could support military applications in China. Still, the buyout was approved this year by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, a federal government panel.

China seems particularly interested in acquiring energy resources in the United States.  For example, did you know that China is actually mining for coal in the mountains of Tennessee?

Guizhou Gouchuang Energy Holdings Group spent 616 million dollars to acquire Triple H Coal Co. in Jacksboro, Tennessee.  At the time, that acquisition really didn’t make much news, but now a group of conservatives in Tennessee is trying to stop the Chinese from blowing up their mountains and taking their coal.  The following is from a Wall Street Journal article back in March…

The Tennessee Conservative Union began airing an ad Tuesday that says lawmakers have failed to protect the state’s scenic mountains and are allowing the “Chinese to destroy our mountains and take our coal…the same folks who hold our debt.”

But when it comes to our energy resources, China has been most interested in our oil and natural gas.  It is a complete and total mystery why the federal government would allow China to buy up our precious domestic sources of energy, but it is happening.  The following is a list of some of the oil and natural gas deals that China has been involved in during the last few years that was compiled by the Wall Street Journal

Colorado: Cnooc gained a one-third stake in 800,000 acres in northeast Colorado and southeast Wyoming in a $1.27 billion pact with Chesapeake Energy Corp.

Louisiana: Sinopec has a one-third interest in 265,000 acres in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale after a broader $2.5-billion deal with Devon Energy.

Michigan: Sinopec gained a one-third interest in 350,000 acres in a larger $2.5 billion deal with Devon Energy.

Ohio: Sinopec acquired a one-third stake in Devon Energy’s 235,000 Utica Shale acres in a larger $2.5 billion deal.

Oklahoma: Sinopec has a one-third interest in 215,000 acres in a broader $2.5 billion deal with Devon Energy.

Texas: Cnooc acquired a one-third interest in Chesapeake Energy’s 600,000 acres in the Eagle Ford Shale in a $2.16-billion deal.

Wyoming: Cnooc has a one-third stake in 800,000 acres in northeast Colorado and southeast Wyoming after a $1.27 billion pact with Chesapeake Energy. Sinopec gained a one-third interest in Devon Energy’s 320,000 acres as part of a larger $2.5 billion deal.

Gulf of Mexico: Cnooc Ltd. separately acquired minority stakes in some of Statoil ASA’s leases as well as six of Nexen Inc.’s deep-water wells.

How could we be so stupid?

Sadly, as our politicians endlessly bicker China just continues to aggressively push ahead.

And pretty soon China may want to build entire cities in the United States just like they have been doing in other countries.  According to Bloomberg, right now China is actually building a city larger than Manhattan just outside of the capital of Belarus…

China is building an entire city in the forests near the Belarusian capital Minsk to create a manufacturing springboard between the European Union and Russia.

Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko allotted an area 40 percent larger than Manhattan around Minsk’s international airport for the $5 billion development, which will include enough housing to accommodate 155,000 people, according to Chinese and Belarusian officials.

And this is actually already happening on a much smaller scale in this country.  For example, as I have written about previously, a Chinese company known as “Sino-Michigan Properties LLC” has purchased 200 acres of land near the little town of Milan, Michigan.  Their stated goal is to construct a “China City” that has artificial lakes, a Chinese cultural center and hundreds of housing units for Chinese citizens.

In other cases, large chunks of real estate in the middle of major U.S. cities are being gobbled up by Chinese “investors”.  Just check out what a Fortune article from a while back says has been happening in Toledo, Ohio…

In March 2011, Chinese investors paid $2.15 million cash for a restaurant complex on the Maumee River in Toledo, Ohio. Soon they put down another $3.8 million on 69 acres of newly decontaminated land in the city’s Marina District, promising to invest $200 million in a new residential-commercial development. That September, another Chinese firm spent $3 million for an aging hotel across a nearby bridge with a view of the minor league ballpark.

Are you starting to get the picture?

China is on the rise and America is in decline.  If you doubt this, just read the following list of facts which comes from one of my previous articles entitled “40 Ways That China Is Beating America“…

#1 As I mentioned above, when you total up all imports and exports of goods, China is now the number one trading nation on the entire planet.

#2 During 2012, we sold about 110 billion dollars worth of stuff to the Chinese, but they sold about 425 billion dollars worth of stuff to us.  That was the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.

#3 Overall, the U.S. has run a trade deficit with China over the past decade that comes to more than 2.3 trillion dollars.

#4 China now has the largest new car market in the entire world.

#5 China has more foreign currency reserves than anyone else on the planet.

#6 China is the number one gold producer in the world.

#7 China is also the number one gold importer in the world.

#8 The uniforms for the U.S. Olympic team were made in China.

#9 85 percent of all artificial Christmas trees are made in China.

#10 The new World Trade Center tower is going to include glass that has been imported from China.

#11 The new Martin Luther King memorial on the National Mall was made in China.

#12 One of the reasons it is so hard to export stuff to China is because of their tariffs.  According to the New York Times, a Jeep Grand Cherokee that costs $27,490 in the United States costs about $85,000 in China thanks to all the tariffs.

#13 The Chinese economy has grown 7 times faster than the U.S. economy has over the past decade.

#14 The United States has lost a staggering 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

#15 The United States has lost an average of 50,000 manufacturing jobs per month since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001.

#16 Overall, the United States has lost a total of more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities since 2001.

#17 According to the Economic Policy Institute, America is losing half a million jobs to China every single year.

#18 China now produces more than twice as many automobiles as the United States does.

#19 Since the auto industry bailout, approximately 70 percent of all GM vehicles have been built outside the United States.

#20 After being bailed out by U.S. taxpayers, General Motors is currently involved in 11 joint ventures with companies owned by the Chinese government.  The price for entering into many of these “joint ventures” was a transfer of “state of the art technology” from General Motors to the communist Chinese.

#21 Back in 1998, the United States had 25 percent of the world’s high-tech export market and China had just 10 percent. Ten years later, the United States had less than 15 percent and China’s share had soared to 20 percent.

#22 The United States has lost more than a quarter of all of its high-tech manufacturing jobs over the past ten years.

#23 China’s number one export to the U.S. is computer equipment, but the number one U.S. export to China is “scrap and trash”.

#24 The U.S. trade deficit with China is now more than 30 times larger than it was back in 1990.

#25 China now consumes more energy than the United States does.

#26 China is now the leading manufacturer of goods in the entire world.

#27 China uses more cement than the rest of the world combined.

#28 China is now the number one producer of wind and solar power on the entire globe.

#29 There are more pigs in China than in the next 43 pork producing nations combined.

#30 Today, China produces nearly twice as much beer as the United States does.

#31 Right now, China is producing more than three times as much coal as the United States does.

#33 China now produces 11 times as much steel as the United States does.

#34 China produces more than 90 percent of the global supply of rare earth elements.

#35 China is now the number one supplier of components that are critical to the operation of U.S. defense systems.

#36 A recent investigation by the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services found more than one million counterfeit Chinese parts in the Department of Defense supply chain.

#37 15 years ago, China was 14th in the world in published scientific research articles.  But now, China is expected to pass the United States and become number one very shortly.

#38 China now awards more doctoral degrees in engineering each year than the United States does.

#39 The average household debt load in the United States is 136% of average household income.  In China, the average household debt load is 17% of average household income.

#40 The Chinese have begun to buy up huge amounts of U.S. real estate.  In fact, Chinese citizens purchased one out of every ten homes that were sold in the state of California in 2011.

And what we have seen so far may just be the tip of the iceberg as far as Chinese “investment” in U.S. real estate is concerned.  The following is a brief excerpt from a Bloomberg article that was posted just last week

China is studying the possibility of investing a portion of its $3.4 trillion in foreign-exchange reserves in U.S. real estate, said two people with direct knowledge of the situation.

The State Administration of Foreign Exchange began the study after seeing signs of a recovery in the U.S. property market, said the people, who asked not to be identified as they weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the matter. China may acquire properties, invest in real estate funds or buy stakes in property companies, they said. The safety of the investments will be the top priority, said the people, who didn’t elaborate on a timetable or other details.

So what can we do about all of this?

Unfortunately, not a whole lot.  Both major political parties seem to be fully convinced that merging our economy with the economy of communist China is a great idea.  I would not expect major changes in our policies regarding China any time soon.

For now, I will just leave you with one piece of advice…

Learn to speak Chinese.  You might need it someday.

            Exactly . Or when He killed Jobs children or all the ones in Sodom and Gomorrah and many others?
            Most want to look at the love of God but don’t want to quote the FACT that the vast majority of people are going to H-E double toothpicks.

            They died because they were sinful. Thats what happend and even if you want to polish your image of God, God is God and he can do whatever he wants. Like how u can do whatever u want with your iphone…

          • Greg

            Noah’s flood was local. “Earth” being used is the same Hebrew meaning as when Cain was banished from the “Earth”. Obviously, Cain did not leave the planet when he was expelled from the Garden.

            Highly recommend a Strong’s concordance to get different meanings of words in original Hebrew/Greek that are translated into English. Flood was to remove the hybrid giants that were created when the fallen angels tried to contaminate the future lineage of Christ.

          • Dave_Mowers

            ..because in your mind God plays semantics to trick the people he is allegedly teaching.

          • J

            ergh… the incorrect interpretation of language is not semantic trickery… lol surely you might refute his statement with something better than that. What about the fallen angel hybrid, whilst it would make a brilliant fantasy plot, id be interested to see his sources in stating that this was the reasoning for the great flood.

          • J

            “Flood was to remove the hybrid giants that were created when the fallen angels tried to contaminate the future lineage of Christ.” What are your sources for this? Sounds like a greek myth more than anything.

          • 2Gary2

            Several Nephelim escaped the flood by also building a ark. Their ark sailed on the opposite side of the earth so this is why there is no mention of it in the bible–Noah did not see it.
            They eventually came to inhabit Antarctica until it moved to the South polar region and froze. Now the Nephelim are living underground. When global warming is complete the Nephelim will be free to resume their role as the men of renown who bred with earthly woman and propagated their species, Goliath not with standing.

          • ace_R

            where do you get this info from? then

          • dave

            God , in His love for mankind gives every individual the choice of weather they will live their life in sin or become a child of Gods kingdom !
            He gives freewill to choose ! If an individual or a nation chooses to live their life in sin ( such as the US has done) and to blaspheme God then it is hard to expect God to do anything but judge that sin and the individual or nation that is committing the sins !! God does have a back as well as an all seeing eye and He can not look upon sin and will turn away (or turn His back ) from it ! He also has an all hearing ear that will respond when people cry out to Him in genuine repentance and desire for God to restore and heal !

          God’s Hand is always extended. WE need to put our hand out and connect to God. By God’s gift of free will, we have the power to reject God. The U.S.A., since 08+15+1969, has been systemically rejecting God=Goodness. The lefties that have taken over the R/W/B, are secular pagans. Many of these same people are Satan’s workers. Look what their 43 years of leftism has brought us to [55 million abortions and dozens of STD’s, destruction of the family, moral relativism, financial bankruptcy]. Nice work ! Christi Fidelis !!

        Um, no. Your “god” doesn’t exist. This has nothing to do with turning your back on the tooth fairy. Abandon the silly notion of “god” and take responsibility for your actions; don’t trust in a god that doesn’t exist; instead, accept the world for what it is, understand the world, and work to improve its weaknesses. And do so without resorting to fairy tales. In such wise, things will get accomplished. :)

        • J

          If we believe that God gave us free will, we accept responsibility for our actions in that our actions were of our own free will. So, that derogatory statement of yours in part, makes little sense. Although I agree that we should improve the world, unless you offer a method of doing so and one that is specific, you may as well save your breath..

      In China the government runs the corporations. In the US the corporations run the government. Big difference!

      When I moved to the Philippines, I was asked why I wanted to chance being over run by the Chinese just 500 miles away. Now I see that the Philippines is actually safer than the US in being ‘overrun’ by the Chinese. They are an old part of the Philippine lifestyle and accepted everywhere here. Not so in the US.

      Who gave them this wealth to buy America? Every Walmart shopper donated…

        > When I moved to the Philippines, I was asked why I wanted to chance being over run by the Chinese just 500 miles away.

        interesting perspective you were given – especially since the Philippines was subject to a US genocide at the end of the 19th century. The biggest danger to the Philippines is the US, not China (assuming you’re a human being, and not a corporation)

        • Dave_Mowers

          I met someone who grew up after WWII in the Philippines who explained to me that American culture was so prized by his people that everyone learned English with the hope to one day not live in an Americanized Philippines but the United States with the intention to take over America and make it their own.

        well, youre looking at things from a very limited scope. white people were dirt poor up until 300 years ago. they robbed that wealth from the Africans, Chinese, Indians, Persians, Turks, etc. and now the Chinese are making some of it back through work, and not thievery. and still the white parasites are making the majority of the money through walmart labour exploitation. making money back that was stolen from them in the first place. white shills are complaining. aint that a bich?

      I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – The most direct attack on America is the expansion of legal immigration to this country. Almost half the people currently living in the US are here as a result of the Immigration Reform Act of 1965. The work and student visa program, green cards and refugee programs make illegal immigration look puny. Contrary to the current meme, our country was not founded by immigrants – it was founded by colonists that forged a new country out of the wilderness for themselves and their posterity. It is our inheritance and it is being sacrificed at the table of political correctness, just as surely as Esau gave up his inheritance for a pot of stew, Americans are giving up their inheritance for the porridge of a false self-righteousness of “multiculturalism” that is nothing but the death of the American way of life and freedom.

      These brainwashed Eurotrash socialists and third world bottom-feeders have no history or tradition of natural rights, and in fact have never heard of the concept, or understand that the Constitution was an attempt to codify those natural God-given rights. They do not understand what our Founders understood – that men who are drawn to centers of power are by nature the worst among us, and that laws are needed to keep them in check. They do not understand or respect that the Constitution was written as a witness against the fallen nature of man, and that it is as timeless man’s nature, which has not changed, and will not be out-dated until that nature has become angelic.

      The descendants of America’s founders are being replaced with a foreign people, and this was by design. The American gun-owning, freedom-loving middle-class was the biggest obstacle to One-World-Government-equally-distributed-misery plans of the international bankster cartel. It was no accident that American wages started stagnating in 1970 and have decreased ever since. Simple supply and demand. Since that wasn’t enough, more jobs were moved overseas and more foreigners were moved in to take the jobs still here.

      Ben Johnson said this about the The 1965 Immigration Act in an article for FrontPageMagazine in 2002:

      The 1965 Immigration Act: Anatomy of a Disaster By: Ben Johnson | Tuesday, December 10, 2002

      “Despite the overwhelming assurances of the bill’s supporters, the 1965 Immigration Reform Act has remade society into the image its critics most feared. Immigration levels topping a million a year will increase U.S. population to 400 million within 50 years. Meanwhile, exponents of multiculturalism insist new arrivals make no effort to assimilate; to do so would be “genocidal,” a notion that makes a mockery of real genocides. Instead, long-forgotten grudges are nursed against the white populace. Native citizens take to flight as the neighborhoods around them, the norms in their hometowns, are debased for the convenience of low-paid immigrants and well-heeled businessmen. All the while, indigenous paychecks drop through lower wages and higher taxes collected to provide social services for immigrants. And this only takes into account legal immigration.

      “Americans must realize demographic trends are not inevitable, the product of mysterious forces beyond their control. Today’s population is the result of yesterday’s immigration policy, and that policy is as clearly broken as its backers’ assurances were facetious. A rational policy will only come about when native Americans place the national interest above liberal howls of ‘prejudice’ and ‘tribalism.'”

      Its only gotten worse since Ben penned this article.

      At a time when unemployment is at an all time high, “Conservative” Senator Ted Cruz wants to expand legal immigration, most of who will vote Democrat or Big Government Republican once they get here and take your job.

      This is a war against the American People and Culture, and the Americans are loosing badly and don’t even understand why. Most Americans blame only illegal immigration which is a fraction of the problem, and miss the bigger picture of legal immigrants.

      I often hear people ask the question of how America became such a divided Nation. Now you know. Americans have purchased so many firearms that many manufacturers of military pattern semi-automatic rifles are back ordered for a year or more, and ammunition has doubled in price, when you can find it, and there are now at least 100 million gun owners in the US. DHS has purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammunition and “assault rifles” for personal protection. America is preparing for a civil war, and to deny it is whistling past the graveyard of history.

      • Ralfine

        Yes, roll back all immigration.

        Send the Amish back to Europe, and the Irish, and the Italian, and the English, and the French, tell them to take the Statue of Liberty with them.

        Then you can start with sending the Chinese back, and the Mexican, and all the African slaves and their descendants.

        Without all the immigrants America will do so much better.

      No, I don’t think so. The Chinese pay slave labor wages to their own people. Do you believe they will pay our workers what they are accustomed to receive? Perhaps they could bring Chinese workers here. I’m only guessing about the employees.

      • Ralfine

        In China there is minimum wage. Companies that only pay minimum wage, don’t get any workers.
        There is a shortage of millions of workers in the traditional export areas of the Pearl River delta and near Shanghai.

        And don’t forget – the prices for Chinese goods are set by their customers – WalMart, Sears, Home Depot, etc.

        • Louise in MO

          Thanks for you replly. I did not know that China has a minimum wage. I imagine it to be quite low. However, I am basing that on what I’ve read in the not to distant path.

          • Hammerstrike

            What I read about China is just propaganda uppon propagand uppon propaganda.

          • Ralfine

            The minimum wage is not much, but it is increasing all the time. Last year China announced they want to increase minimum wage by 30% this year. Usually, European-owned companies pay way above minimum wage in China to retain talent. Chinese switch companies at the drop of a hat, if the other company pays more.

            We paid about 6 times minimum wage for our lowest paid position. But this guaranteed that nobody left for the competition, and we spent minimum time for hiring new staff. Only when we were expanding. We never had to replace anyone. Which saved me a lot of time for interviews I didn’t have to do.

    Michael, you might also want to consider what it will do to prices here. When China buys a food based company like Smithfield. It is not so much to compete in the local market, but to ship the majority of the product back to China. They have also been buying up a fair amount of farmland. Remember just a few weeks ago, over a thousand dead pigs came floating down a river in China. Not exactly a sign of agricultural success. If you think food prices are high now, wait until 80% of Smithfield products are on a boat going to China.

      Mandarin might be the official language, but in Shanghai, the people prefer Shanghainese, and in Guangzhou people prefer Cantonese. Shenzhen is different. Because people in Shenzhen come from all over the place, they speak Mandarin.

      However, Chinese from Hong Kong and Shanghai probably speak English to communicate with each other.

      And then there is the traditional written language, which is used in Taiwan and Hong Kong, and the simplified, which is used in the mainland.

      Compared to English: “Isn’t it” would be traditional, and “init” is simplified.

    #39 The average household debt load in the United

    household debt load is 17% of average household income.

    Yes, the savings rate is higher. China is still largely a cash based economy. There might be 400 million people living in cities, but that still lives 1000 million living in villages. And not every village has paved roads, or a road to the next village.

    15 years ago it was faster to withdraw 200,000 from one bank account, carry it to another city and deposit it there, than have the bank transferring it.

    20 years ago the average ANNUAL income of a farmer was USD200.

  • Orange Jean

    I live just down the road (about 4 miles) from Smithfield Foods headquarters… go by at least twice a day. This news shocked me, didn’t see it coming at all, no rumors locally. I think we are all shocked by it… and it is certainly going to change the town, which has for the most part been a nice place to live due to some past generosity of the family that owned Smithfield Foods (for example they largely sponsored building the local YMCA).

    I can tell you currently that about 80% of the employees there locally are Black the rest are either Hispanic or White. I have never seen a single Asian person working for them. It’s going to be a real culture shock, I suspect. I am also concerned about the fact that the Chinese company which bought them out has in the past been found responsible for using toxic chemicals in pork, which sickened hundreds of people… and the plant dumps waste water where it may enter the aquifer where I get water. I am telling all my family and friends who happen to eat pork to find another source.

    Its not that I don’t think a corporation doesn’t have the right to sell someone, but I think it’s a shame that it has been sold to a Chinese firm. Gives me the creeps… and NO, I will not be learning Chinese!

Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a preproach to any people!! i’m afraid we gone to far can this nation as a whole repent? I say no so PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! seek God for yourself He who has the Son has Life he who does not have the Son does not have life. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but but he who does not believe is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only Begotton Son of God And this is the condemnation that has come into the world and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have seen done in God. God LOVES YOU!! Repent of your sin come to the light that if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart God raised him from the dead you will be saved for it is with your mouth you confess and are saved and with your heart you believe and are justified… Darkness is engulfing this land…Jesus IS COMING! VERY SOON!! Jesus said you are either for me or against me…so choose this day in home you shall serve the world or the Lord…for you are either for me or against me said Lord Yeshua!

  • Jimbo

    From my own experience of China, employment is pretty much a free market. Workers follow the money. If a steel mill 100 miles away is offering 10% more, workers will leave their current jobs to work at the better paying mill. It is not slave labor as such.
    Workers are housed in dorms which is deducted from wages and they can be fined for lateness, poor work etc. I have heard stories of workers being fined excessively so that they are Permanently in debt to their employer and then enslaved (by contract) until the debt was paid off. The factories I worked in though would only impose fines to a cumulative maximum of 10% of a workers wages for that week. The standard of living in China is improving year on year but it is way below what we would consider good in the west. Staples such as rice, beer and cigarettes cost the same in real terms for a Chinese worker as they do for western worker.
    Meanwhile a MacDonalds burger in China
    is considered a luxury item and you will only find KFC, MacDonalds etc. in the high end malls in the cities. The Chinese have strong family values and the family is central to their way of life. Children are looked after by grandparents while their parents are at work and the grandparents are cared for by their children in old age. Whatever happens in the future, it is a fact that the western way of life can’t continue as it is. We consume way more than we produce and that is evidenced by our debt levels. Markets in the west will crash but that is simply because in a globalised economy things will begin to level out. We can buy a flat screen TV for a few hundred dollars because some poor person in China was paid a pittance to make it. Meanwhile the average Chinese worker does not own a TV.

    One thing about the China that is worth sharing, is that for an oppressive communist state, the Chinese enjoy some strange freedoms. They can smoke inside bars and restaurants, they can start up a food stall in the market or the side of the road without a license and they can sell their farm produce in the same way. There are restrictions for trade in large quantities but the local barter type selling is freely conducted. I you want a beer, most shops have a table and chairs outside. You buy a bottle in the shop and sit outside and drink it. The shop doesn’t need a special license to consume beer on the premises. Older people play Mahjong on tables on the sidewalk and they seem to have time for eachother. Buses and trains are full of converstaion unlike the silent commutes we have in the west where everyone just stares at their I Pod or Blackberry and shuts everyone else out. I spent six months in China last year and I never felt that I was in a police state. The locals told me that China was a very different place ten years before but the internet gave them a taste of how others lived in the rest of the world. The Chinese call it the web revolution. I agree that we should prepare for harder times to come when the global economy re-balances away from debt towards a real economy. Harder times yes but will they be worse? Are we happier with our giant TV’s and 4wd cars than a Chinaman is with his bottle of beer and his game of Mahjong?

      the problem with China is not that it’s a police state, it’s that theyre too free. you can drive on the wrong side of the road and no cop will pull you over, but in america or europe, you can do everything by the book, but if youre black, youre going to jail. the west keeps telling you that youre free, but you cant even turn your apartment into a hotel without a license, but millions of Chinese are doing this with no regulation whatsoever.

  • grumpyhillbilly

    First let me say hello to big brother.

    Can’t blame the Chinese for looking out for their interests and some forward thinking. Both of which is absent from the US government, banking, and corporations. This can be laid at the feet of the educated technocrat, who is nothing more than a paper pushing parasite. How in the world we got talked into this will be something for the historians. For me its a simple you reap what you sow, and we’ve sown nothing for awhile.

    The bible says the deter will be slave to debt holder. America continues to get in more and more debt from the fed and this horrible trade agreement that is killing this country. Most of our products are made in China or some other country and now they are buying up any and everything with all those dollars. Its so sad to see what is happening to this country. When are we going to fire our government that don’t work for us.

They can’t be heard. They are outnumbered.

    “a Jeep Grand Cherokee that costs $27,490 in the United States costs about $85,000 in China thanks to all the tariffs.”

    That’s why the Jeep is produced in China.

    Volkswagen also produces in China for a long time. They said, production costs in China are 30% higher than in Germany, but it still pays because of the tariff and shipping costs.

    I visited China last summer. Some impressions:

    –The animal spirits are alive and well, tons of economic activity and free exchange at the street level. Less regulation, more freedom than U.S.A. in some respects probably because there are so many people govt. cannot control them all.

    –I felt safer walking the streets than I would in most major U.S. cities. The people were generally very decent and kind though there were occasionally cultural barriers to communication.

    –The Chinese do not whine. They work.

    –Our goose is so cooked. We have a President who governs like a savage and an entire class of people who prefer slavery on the govt. economic plantation to work.

    In China apparently democracy works and their government is directly invested in the future of their people, the wealth creation for the bottom and success for the economy.

    This is so funny. This is exactly what happened throughout most of the world when American businesses bought up and controlled most of the global economy in other countries. Where was your concern then. It’s not nice when the shoe is on the other foot.

    The USA has over 1,000 military bases in other people countries to dominate and control them.

    Considering that the USA is a dictatorial corpratocracy, Chinese control may actually save the republic for the citizens that have ignorantly abandoned it with so much enthusiasm.

    USA USA USA is already a police state, perhaps China will free you from the NSA and all the other alphabet agencies.

  • MaryQuiteContrary

    Anatoliy Golytsin’s testimony was also critical in the quietly efficient and sudden British military/MI5/Special Branch ‘putsch’ that abruptly confronted Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson, forced his immediate resignation and resulted in his elevation to the House of Lords on condition he never say a word in public again. The only unit that could have saved him, the elite Guards Armoured stationed south of London, refused to join the conspiracy against him – the Guards had taken an oath 300 years previously at the Restoration never to take up armsl against the government – but also they undertook not to intervbene unless directly called upon to do so by Wilson’s government. Golytsin’s testimony confirmed existing suspicions that Wilson had been compromised by, and was working for, the Soviets. This was probably also the last time that the ‘establishment’ in any western nation reacted decisively to resist treason.

    • http://www.DNotice.org/ Dean Jackson

      Correct, and Golitsyn proved that French foreign intelligence was totally compromised by Moscow. Soon after his defection Golitsyn reported that the KGB, at the time of his defection, were planning an intelligence operation concerning American strategic missile bases in America using, French foreign intelligence to spy on those bases. Several intelligence officers are briefed on this allegation. One year after this revelation one of those briefed French intelligence officers receives orders to mount such an operation in America! Well, this French intelligence officer, who previously believed Golitsyn to be a false defector, is shocked and now knows Golitsyn is a genuine defector.

    Actually what has been mentioned is chicken compared to the whole economy. 30% here and there is nothing .

    In fact other nations would be envious of the amount of investments (aka job creations) the Chinese has put into US. In Africa they invest as in US and created lots of jobs too. One thing China does not boast of what they are doing for the world on the back of poor Chinese peasants who slogged day and night for meagre pay and get cancers for it.

    They do not use guns to do so. They are tradesmen and love to trade.

    They have no choice…they have 1.4 billion people to feed.

  • Jimbo

    I live and work in Australia and the company I work for has just been bought by a US company. It doesn’t mean that we now have yanks working in the building with us. Nothing has changed. There are many Chinese owned and operated companies in Australia and they are not staffed with Chinese people. China owns a lot of US Treasury bonds (debt) and rather than sit on that debt and wait for it to become useless paper, they are using it to acquire real assets. We all need to accept that we live in a globalised economy that is re-balancing. USA, Europe, UK, Australia etc all have high standards of living based on a live now pay later system. Chinese, Indian and African people live within their means. They don’t throw food in the garbage because it is one day out of date. They boil chicken leftovers for soup instead of buying “fresh” soup in foil bags. They darn their socks and fix the holes in their shoes. Is that such a bad way to live? I think the people who need to be really worried about the re-balance are the top 1%. Will we accept that whilst we eek out a living, others are living the high life with profits made from our demise? I think not.

  • Strangewalk

    America’s corporate chiefs gave up on the US in the interest of making a quick buck, and stuffed money into the back pockets of corrupt politicians to look the other way. The promise and future of America will end when the people give up as well…which seems to be happening now.

  • Gord Hicks

    And don’t forget the Chinese are active doing the same kind of thing in and around areas the US considers its sphere of influence eg they are now set to build a massive alternative ship canal through Nicaragua that will allow passage of ships more than twice the size of those Panama Canal can accommodate even after its 5.2 B$ expansion is completed

    This nation has abandoned God completely and is suffering judgement because of it ! However there are many believers that havent abandoned God and He will take care of His own.

    God does indeed give people their choice , their own free will to choose to follow Him or reject Him and this nation has rejected Him! That doesnt mean however that believers wont be put thru perilous times while they trod on this earth including persecution and even death as many believers have faced thruout history!

    True ! God doesnt abandon a believer but it doesnt mean that a particular believer wont get inadvertantly caught up in the same judgement that rejectors will face while here on this earth!

    The difference is believers will be with the Lord immediately after passing from this life and rejectors will be cast into the lake of fire! [

    There is always more than one side to a story. From the Wall Street Journal June 5.

    Shuanghai and Smithfield have been talking joint venture for seven years.

    Smithfield’s domestic growth prospects are constrained by sluggish sales in a mature and consolidated market.

    Shuanghai is especially attracted to Smithfield’s vertically integrated model, which Smithfield has argued helps insure food safety, a HUGE problem in China.
    Outright purchase was prompted by the largest shareholder of Smithfield, Continental Grain was pushing to break the company up.

    GM in China or is it China taking over the United States of America by default of our President?

    Wake up America! Before it’s too late and we become another subordinate nation of Red Communist China. Where have all the jobs gone? Turn over every object and piece of clothing in your home and garage, and see where it was made? It certainly wasn’t “Made in America” Why did Obama Bail out GM with Billions of our hard earned tax-payer dollars, and sell the GM stock (which we held as collateral) at a loss of over 10 Billion dollars?

    Why did he exempt Congress and all his Union buddies from Obama Care? The Democrats are selling their immortal soul to the Devil, and they are taking us down the tube with them. For the love of God; Wake up America’ and turn this Country around which our Veterans have fought and died so valiantly to protect before it is too late.

    It is time for us as a Nation to get down on our knees and beg Almighty God; for his forgiveness. If we do not fight and pray for this great country
    and get rid of all these narcissistic bastards who care nothing about America, (but what they can drain from her) than we, and our children, will pay the ultimate price of this cowardly surrender to Communist China.

    May Almighty God; have mercy on US and bring us back from this brink of disaster.

    America is the latest of failed empires that can be seen all throughout History.

    Like the old rockstars that tries to maintain their “head banging” style, it gets boring over time. The concert tickets are over-priced; the musicians are not as practiced, so the sound is loose; life on the road has burnt them out (fighting foreign does that to over-reaching empires all throughout history!)

    The rockstar can’t sell his merchandise at his concerts anymore and the LPs are no longer played on the radio. China is the new empire act to follow! NEW songs, NEW lyrics, NEW look and sound; people can’t wait to buy their NEW merchandise!

    America is now playing to the mirror and seeing as well as remembering what it once was. Now it’s just a joke on stage. No one want to hear the same lyrics or music anymore….the party’s over.

    of the wealthiest communist nation in the world. Times, they are certainly a’ gettin’ interestin’.

    Oh, well, can we at least hope that out new masters, the Chines, are at least no more violently opposed to American values than the former has been? Shucks, I might even like Chinese rule by and by, especially if they don’t pull off false flag capers against the U.S., such as 9-11, Sandy Hook, Boston Bombing, OK City Bombing, the Waco Massacre, etc.

    Maybe the Chinese won’t alter our established laws of physics as our former masters have done,
    such as massive skyscrapers that go “POOF!” for no earthly reason, and giant airliners that disappear into thin air as though they never existed, etc.

    Agenda 21.. starting to wind down. They’ve pretty much ‘brainwashed’ the masses. Freedoms? What are they and just ‘when’ did we lose them? Oh.. we never did. Why? Because ‘we the people’ ARE FREE. Brainwashing an entire generation was easy. It still goes on today. While we, in the West, are turning in to the next talk show, Obama’s got genocide happening in the East (our ‘fellow’ man) and no one is reporting that in the West because they don’t want to interrupt your vision of a new car in the driveway.

    Agenda 21 is NOW officially taking off at high speeds. It’s apparent with the chemicals in the water and FEMA coming in to ‘take care’ of the the situation. The next step will be to ‘move’ people away from their land and into city/town housing and ‘controlling’ their clean water. You have to stand outside the game and look in. It was ALL PLANNED in the Iron Mountain documents. ‘Coming to a city near you.’ Rodster’s comment has it right. We deserve it. It was the greatest ‘swindle’ ever played on humanity. Their plan to de-populate more than 80% of the population has been going on for years.. and we still ‘flip the channel’ and go Christmas shopping.

    The only difference between the USA and China is that in China, government controls the corporations, int USA select big corporations control the government. the end result is the same, a few power hungry individuals control everything and everyone else.
