China’s 626 million cameras will spy on its citizens, and use software to apprehend them in just minutes

The nation which will soon boast the largest GDP in the world – China – is using digital technology to secretly detain and imprison tens of thousands of its citizens for so-called political crimes that range from expressing “extremist” thoughts to merely traveling or studying abroad.

This police state is part of a sweeping effort by Chinese authorities to use detentions and data-driven CCTV surveillance especially in the region of Xinjiang and over its ten million Uighurs, a Turkic-speaking Muslim minority that China says has been influenced by Islamic extremism.

Meanwhile, China’s state-run Xinhua news service has just announced that China’s State Council Information Office has declared China is making “remarkable progress” on improving human rights:

China has opened a new era of human rights protection and is now contributing to the diversity of human civilization and providing Chinese wisdom and solutions to promote social progress.

The truth is that China currently has installed 176 million surveillance cameras , and it shooting for 626 million by 2020. Since China has 1.4 billion citizens, there will be almost one camera for every two persons.

Most Bachelor of Science jobs are held by foreigners in Silicon Valley and owners want it to stay that way

Some 57 out of every 100 jobs in Silicon Valley requiring a bachelor’s degree or higher are filled by someone who wasn’t born in the U.S., according to a boast by Carl Guardino, president of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group.

Guardino, who wants President Donald Trump to grant DACA (ages 16-34) amnesty, said that loss of illegal workers would be “particularly damaging in Silicon Valley”, where they are part of the region’s tech world labor pool. Of the nation’s 800,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), about 230,000 are in California.

This business leader seems oblivious to reality. Every job held by a non-citizen means one less job for an American, and leads to lower wages in that skill or profession.

Foreign workers don’t strike, complain about excessive hours, report pervert bosses or otherwise make waves – fearing reporting by employers to authorities. Their bargaining power in the marketplace rivals the 1800s’ cotton field slaves, but lacking even minimal guaranteed healthcare, food or shelter. Meanwhile, on a brighter note for Silicon Valley, Jeff Bezos, marked a milestone this week, when his personal wealth exceeded $100 billion. Continue reading →

Other countries want you as a university student – English-speaking classes with virtually no tuition

If you are not a resident of Pennsylvania you can still earn a nursing degree at Penn State University in four years at a tuition-only cost of $154,600.

Or you could get the same education (with brat bun, not frat fun) free in Germany.

Free?

And you don’t have to speak German?

Public universities in Germany charge no tuition to anyone, including Americans , ugly or otherwise. Classes are offered in spoken English.

Students, who want degrees (in English) from among the world’s best institutions, can enroll in schools like  University of Munich, University of Hamburg or Ruprecht Karl University of Heidelberg, three of the country’s best schools, and pay no tuition. Some years ago the government initiated a $500 a semester tuition charge, but students revolted and it was eliminated.

American students enrolled in public universities in Slovenia Continue reading →

Just like the many sharks swimming in Congress, China’s newest star lawyers simply have no heart

LawyerCartoonSharks

If our Congress ever gets back in session, forty percent of the members will have passed the Bar – far fewer than a hundred years ago, when nearly 80 percent of our legislators were lawyers.

And the good news is that soon there may be even fewer lawyers in Congress, eventually none, because the legal “profession” is headed to extinction.

Don’t we need a nearly inebriated buffoon to charge us $600 an hour to fight a traffic ticket, a slick con man to “help” us get swindled, or maybe just the assistance of a voracious ambulance chaser, who jacks up our insurance rates with outlandish settlements?

For example, we now have 10,000 immigration lawyers in the United States (probably 90% of the world’s lawyers practicing in this field), partially because the U.S. has the most complex set of immigration laws and the largest immigration bureaucracy of any country. Complex always means higher fees for attorneys.

Incredibly, the big law firms are now even recruiting H-1B Visa candidates from places like Australia to swell their ranks even more.

Hope is on the way. Imagine very few lawyers in America, saving us all a fortune in hot air and cold cash. Continue reading →

China begins Super AI program while America plans downloading vast knowledge into soldiers’ brains

For China – good news! For humanity – possible extinction!

The People’s Republic of China has vowed to become a world leader in artificial intelligence (AI) within a decade, and the government will spend billions on developing computers that are capable of thinking for themselves. The Communist powerhouse wants to become world leader in the field within a decade.

China has issued a “national AI development plan” to exceed efforts by Western market leaders, including Google and Microsoft.  The Chinese will spend $22.15 billion on AI research by 2020, and $59.07 billion by 2025. Because of their government-owned defense industry and low wages, the actual costs – comparable to the U.S. – will be five to ten times those numbers, far exceeding American investment Continue reading →

Trilateral Commission turned China into giant technocracy to serve investors and corporations

Zbigniew Brzezinski, co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, died Friday.

He was responsible for most of America’s economic woes today caused by our monstrous foreign trade deficit, fortunes and lives lost in Afghanistan, trillions wasted in the Cold War.

Brzens

Leading the Trilateral effort, Brzezinski became National Security Advisor for President James Carter, and in May 1978, against State Department wishes, began talks that led to full diplomatic relations in December that year.

Brzezinski’s “nor­mal­iza­tion” of rela­tions with Com­mu­nist China was designed to change it tech­no­log­i­cally into a super power.

The following year the Washington Post reports in a February article – China Policy: A Born-Again Brzezinski – how Zbigniew describes his meeting with Cyrus Vance and China’s leader, Deng Xiaoping (Teng): Continue reading →

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.”

Anchorage is rape capital of U.S., Oakland most robberies, and St. Louis leads in murder rate

Some media pundits and attention ardent politicians have asked for the National Guard to enter Chicago because of hundreds of murders in the past year, but this 2.7 million metropolis is far from our most dangerous major city, based on murders per 100,000 population.

FBI statistics for murder and non-negligent homicides (cities of at least 250,000) put St. Louis (49.9 per 100,000) as the worst city for being murdered, followed by Detroit (43.5), New Orleans (38.7), Baltimore (33.8), Newark (33.3), Buffalo (23.2), Pittsburgh (22.24), Memphis (21.4), Atlanta (20.5), Cincinnati (20.2), Oakland (19.5), Miami (19.2), Kansas City (16.7), Stockton (16.4), Cleveland (16.2), Washington D.C. (15.9), Philadelphia (15.9), Indianapolis (15.8), and then Chicago at 15.1. The lowest rate is Chandler AZ (0.4)

The danger of rape is highest in Anchorage  (130.1 per 100,000, followed by Cleveland (124), Continue reading →

Will “security at any cost” traitors follow China’s example to virtually ban Internet free speech?

While most eyes are on a surprising election in America today, fascist China has announced plans to strip its 1.4 billion residents of their freedom of expression on the Internet.

chinawebOnce a Socialist, then a Communist nation, China today is a plutocracy that coordinates private corporations and government entities, brainwashing its population, forcing them to “think properly” or face institutional retribution.

This means that every member of the government and media – all teachers, authors and politicians – follow the same directives. Collusion is the order of the day, although hidden from the public. It’s somewhat like the Press giving the questions in advance to the favored candidate, but on a grander scale.

Despite propaganda here, China is doing very well, primarily from gobbling up American factories and seizing American jobs, thanks to cooperation from leaders of the corporate/government combine in this country. For example, lifespan of the Continue reading →
