China winning the real World War against America

During the Vietnam War, my part-time job was correspondent for the United States Information Agency (USIA), and one assignment portended today’s global power alignment.

The assignment was to interview ten ministers from various African nations to gain their impressions of a trip they were concluding in the United States. The article would be translated for their nation’s newspapers after review by Washington officials.

My recollection was a 500-word report to be sent Western Union to USIA headquarters (@ $1 a word). I was paid $30.

The ministers had gathered at  International House, Chestnut St., Philadelphia, and some were dressed American-style and others were in native garb.

I introduced myself as a writer from USIA and then the room filled with shouts.

“You are not USIA! You are CIA…” Continue reading →

That buy your green card pitch by Kushner’s sister in China renews controversy over visas for the rich

If you had $300 during the Civil War you could avoid that first Draft by just paying the dough and walking away. No money, you could go to jail or possibly become one of the 620,000 Americans killed on the battlefields.

When it comes to citizenship, the rich don’t need to climb that wall or swim that Rio Grande, now they just put up money, $500,000 or more to be exact, to invest in some project in the U.S. and agree that somehow that will create ten new jobs.

Some 85% of all these “investment citizens” are from China. The deal is called EB-5 Visa, and not only can you become an American, but so can the wife and children – all for the same price.

By this criterion, anyone with enough money can buy citizenship. Poor folks need not apply.

The program was extended last week by President Donald Trump, even though he said he had qualms about it during the campaign last year. The day after he signed the extension, the Kushner organization was in Beijing, selling investments in the luxury apartment building, One Journal Square, that is set to be built next year in Jersey City. A brochure blasted:

“Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.”

FBI used the very fake “Russian Dossier” – now denounced by its author – to obtain FISA warrant

CNN has revealed that the FBI used the fake “Trump dossier” in its application for a warrant from the FISA court in order to monitor former Donald Trump advisor Carter Page.

And Christopher Steele, who wrote the document, said through his lawyers in a report this week that the dossier came from “unsolicited” and “raw” intelligence that “needed to be analyzed and further investigated/verified.”

While Steele denounces the document, CNN reports it was part of the Democrat-controlled government’s effort to subvert Trump and his associates:

“U.S. officials tell CNN that last year the FBI used a dossier of allegations of Russian ties to Donald Trump’s campaign as part of the justification to get approval to secretly monitor Trump associate Carter Page,” Even Perez reported. “Now those sources say that FBI Director James Comey has cited the dossier in some of his briefings to Congress in recent weeks as one of the sources of information that the bureau used to bolster its investigation.”

“This includes approval from the secret court that overseas the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act known as FISA, to monitor Page’s communications,” Perez continued. “But to obtain permission to target Page, the FBI and the Justice Department would have to present probable cause that he was acting as an agent of a foreign power. Including possibly engaging in clandestine intelligence gathering for a foreign government.”
