Default Scott Walker: Cancel Chinese president's White House visit

Yes Scotty, Let's cause more issues. Lets make a trading partner look like a fool. Maybe Scotty knows where we get the money we need to run our government? Does Scotty want to cause conflict with China? Where does that lead? Moron.


Washington (CNN)Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is calling on President Barack Obama to cancel Chinese President Xi Jinping's September visit to Washington -- channeling Donald Trump's attacks on the United States' biggest Asian trading partner.

Walker, a Republican presidential contender, made his call after U.S. stocks tumbled on Monday amid global fears of China's economic slowdown.

In a statement, Walker -- whose standing in Iowa, a key early state, has suffered as Trump has risen in GOP polls -- accused China of manipulating its economy, echoing critiques of the Asian giant that have come from populists like Trump.

He said Obama should "focus on holding China accountable over its increasing attempts to undermine U.S. interests," rather than hosting Xi.

"Given China's massive cyberattacks against America, its militarization of the South China Sea, continued state interference with its economy, and persistent persecution of Christians and human rights activists, President Obama needs to cancel the state visit," Walker said. "There's serious work to be done rather than pomp and circumstance. We need to see some backbone from President Obama on U.S.-China relations."

Trump has made attacks on China, as well as Mexico, centerpieces of his campaign -- accusing U.S. trade negotiators of hashing out bad deals with the countries.

The United States doesn't have a free trade agreement with China, but it did drop tariffs with Mexico through the early-1990s North American Free Trade Agreement.

The United States and China, meanwhile, frequently find themselves at odds in trade talks at the World Trade Organization in Geneva. The two countries have faced off in trade disputes over rare earth minerals, tires and more, and U.S. officials are regularly asked to slap trade taxes on Chinese goods to make up for the government's intervention in the country's economy and for its efforts to devalue its own currency in order to gain a price advantage in the United States.

Still, a tougher approach to China, and particularly a crackdown on the country's currency manipulation, is a line most typically pushed by populist Democrats on Capitol Hill -- rather than GOP presidential candidates.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Monday that Obama has not called Chinese officials to discuss the country's currency. He said the Treasury Department has been monitoring global markets -- including China's.

He said Chinese currency manipulation and cyber-espionage will be topics of conversation when Xi visits the White House in September.

Walker's proposal to cancel Xi's visit was mocked by Dan Pfeiffer, a former top aide in Obama's White House, who tweeted that Walker "is really bad at being Donald Trump."

China is the one making us look like fools in the trading and economic world. They rip us off left and right and our leaders do nothing about it.

So pardon me if I don't shed a tear for these con artists.

Yes...because it's MUCH better when the US is made out the fool...

US official on China hacking government database: 'This is deep'

Quote:
Data stolen from US government computers by suspected Chinese hackers included security clearance information and background checks dating back three decades, US officials said on Friday, underlining the scope of one of the largest known cyber attacks on federal networks.

The breach of computer systems of the Office of Personnel Management was disclosed on Thursday by the Obama administration, which said records of up to 4 million current and former federal employees may have been compromised.
Even Hillary knows it...

From just last month...

Hillary Clinton accuses China of stealing 'huge amounts of government information' and hacking 'into everything that doesn't move in America'

Quote:
US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused China on Saturday of hacking and stealing commercial secrets as well as 'huge amounts of government information'.

Speaking at a campaign event in New Hampshire, Clinton said the Asian nation tries to 'hack into everything that doesn't move in America' but that she wanted to see the peaceful rise of China.

Clinton's language on China appeared to be far stronger than that usually used by President Barack Obama's Democratic administration.

Clinton, who was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, said: 'But we also have to be fully vigilant.

'China's military is growing very quickly, they're establishing military installations that again threaten countries we have treaties with, like the Philippines because they are building on contested property.'

She added: 'They're also trying to hack into everything that doesn't move in America. Stealing commercial secrets... from defense contractors, stealing huge amounts of government information, all looking for an advantage.'

Asked about the remarks, a White House official declined to comment.

In the most recent case involving suspicions of Chinese hacking, Obama administration officials have said China is the top suspect in the massive hacking of a US government agency that compromised the personnel records of at least 4.2 million current and former government workers.
I'll even throw out a bone and show that even the Leftwing Liberals know it...

Here's far-Lefty DailyBeast...

Team Obama Knows China Is Behind the OPM Hack. Why Won’t They Say So?

Quote:
The Obama administration’s top intelligence and law enforcement officials have concluded that China was almost certainly responsible for the massive hack that exposed highly sensitive information on millions of U.S. government employees.

But the Obama administration has so far refused to publicly accuse Beijing, despite their private conclusions. According to individuals familiar with internal deliberations on the subject, the White House has been reluctant to offend the Chinese in the midst of sensitive international negotiations. And there are concerns that exposing China could compromise U.S. intelligence-gathering techniques.

Questions of political timing have also complicated the question of when to call out China, according to two more individuals who have discussed the OPM attack with U.S. officials and asked not to be identified. On July 9, the administration released more details about the scope of the cyber breach, revealing for the first time that more than 22 million people’s records were compromised. But blaming China then, amid final negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program to which China was a party, would have been a significant distraction. Those talks have now concluded, but Chinese President Xi Jinping is also scheduled to come to Washington in September, and opening a public spat over the OPM hack could overshadow his visit.
So China can hack us and steal millions of government profiles, and Obama is simply going to ALLOW IT because he's a diplomatic wussy and doesn't want to hurt anyone's feeeeeeeewings...All the while they play us like a fiddle...

This is a funny post. They didn't rip us off. We did. We gave them our jobs. Corporations chasing cheap labor. The walmarts of the world. Many of you on the right celebrated the cheaper products. The big Box store mentality. Now after we paid our workers to pack up their own machines and ship them to China you blame China? That is a fuqed up thought process. No tariff or duties. That was called protectionism remember? Don't blame China for accepting the gifts we gave them. Face it. Corporations have screwed you and me. Apple is a good example. Using American free market capitalism to create a product and then having in manufactured over there and pricing in like it was made here. I pointed this out a hundred times here and the right argued with me. Now you blame China? Crazy.

Oh please! I have zero emotion on this subject. I am an apathetic American. I just like a good natured banter to get through the day.
