A t-shirt designed in China known as the “Obamao” shows President Obama wearing a Chairman Mao cap and a Mao jacket. According to the media, the t-shirts have sold like hotcakes. Unfortunately, as usual, Chinese authorities have gone so far as to ban the t-shirt. They fear it might offend the president, who is in […]

When you follow in the path of your father, you learn to walk like him.

Despite the warnings and worries of the world community about its underground nuclear tests, once again North Korea has caused an outrage. Seismologists confirmed that the latest test had the power of a 4.5 quake. North Korea cannot defy the rest of the world without the support of China. China is North Korea’s most important […]

A back does not break from bending.

This week has been full of surprises in American politics: the blame game between Nancy Pelosi and the CIA, President Obama‘s selection of Utah Republican Gov. Jon Huntsman to serve as the ambassador to China, and the invitation for President Obama to visit the University of Notre Dame to deliver an address and receive an […]

God laughs when you steal from a thief.

According to the New York Times, a cyber spy network based in China has tapped into classified documents in 103 countries around the world, targeting governments and private organizations. The computers of Tibetan exiles were not exempted. Spying is not a novelty in civilized society. What surprised me most is that people seem to be […]

The lion’s power lies in our fear of him.

The Chinese government’s campaign of terror and intimidation toward any country that sympathizes with Tibet seems to be working well. Many voices were raised against Madam Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, when she visited China, because she did not denounce the human rights abuses by the government in Beijing. China is certainly a big player […]

Only a fool tests the depth of water with both feet.

The U.S. accused Chinese ships of harassing and surrounding its Navy vessel in international waters. The Chinese crew even stripped to their underwear. It is funny and dangerous. It seems that the Chinese have an habit of testing each new U.S. administration. I remember in 2001, when George W. Bush arrived in the White House, […]

When you go to a donkey’s house, don’t talk about ears.

Madam Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the eyes and ears of President Obama in her foreign trips. During her visit in China last month, she took a soft tone on Chinese political and religious freedoms. She was under intense criticism from human rights groups such as Amnesty international for not openly criticizing the Chinese […]

The barking of the dogs will not disturb the clouds.

Some New York Democrats are still angry that Caroline Kennedy, along with her uncle, Senator Ted Kennedy, endorsed and campaigned for Obama (over Clinton, who is leaving the Senate to become Obama’s Secretary of State). Hillary’s supporters oppose Caroline Kennedy as her replacement. Like the Ming dynasty in China, the Kennedys symbolize the American dynasty. […]

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jane-hamsher/chinese-want-to-buy-the-b_b_144920.html The Chinese want to buy the three big American automakers. Lately China has been very aggressive and ambitious in buying companies around the world. The United States of America has lost its influence and pride. China is one of the three countries with Saudi Arabia and Russia who are buying most of the US […]

Good looking and good luck don’t always walk the same road.

After contaminations of pet food, human food, kids toys, and medicine, anything “made in China” is suspicious. I don’t know what’s going on with China lately…. Maybe karma over the Tibet situation. Although China projected the image of success during Olympics and by sending Chinese astronauts into orbit, just as much bad press has come […]
