Is China model the future of blogging?

China broadcasts confession of Chinese-American blogger

Blogger's Forced Confession

Blogger’s Forced Confession

By 

BEIJING — Chinese state television on Sunday broadcast a startling video of a famous blogger in handcuffs, renouncing his Web posts and saying how dangerous the Internet would be if left uncontrolled by the government.

The 10-minute news report featuring Charles Xue — a Chinese American businessman and one of China’s most popular bloggers — was the latest step in what appears to be a systematic campaign to intimidate online opinion leaders against speaking too freely or critically of the government.

Early in his presidency, President Obama expressed his admiration for the Chinese system. One of his staff (the snake-tongued Anita Dunn) was forced by public outcry to resign when it became known she had called Chairman Mao a role model. Our president also expressed displeasure with the US Constitution because it was too strong on prohibiting the government from exercising power over the citizens. If we can’t replace politicians like our current president with constitutional candidates, then this blogger’s confession will be repeated in America. ~TD

Democrats are thinking it’ll be so “enlightened” to have that here…

Thank you Trail Dust for this thought-provoking post. We are in the grips of a king that supports the massacre of little children in the womb, who has created a dishonest regime only interested in their own agenda. We must continue to fight against it, both practically and through intense prayer.

Charles Xue made the mistake of believing and trusting in the periodic proclamations — from both Beijing and American sinologists — of how China is reformed for the better. The rule-of-thumb when it comes to Communist Party-ruled China:

Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose.
or The more things change, the more they remain the same.

As for Pres. Lucifer wanting China as a model, he can huff and puff and scheme and plot, but it ain’t gonna happen. He’ll have to kill us — millions of us — first.

He’ll have to kill us — millions of us — first.

And I think he is prepared (preparing)? to do exactly that.

Well that’s too bad. He should have gone to Moscow and joined forces with the American Whistleblower.
Anyway, the good news is Larry Summers withdrew his name for consideration as next Head of the Fed. He might have realized that the Fed is broke and thought his first paycheck would bounce. You gotta laugh.
