Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

Back when the infamous ex-running back Orenthal James Simpson was being tried for the murders of his wife Nicole and the unfortunate Ron Goldman, prosecutors presented such a voluminous mountain of evidence that I was convinced no jury in its right mind could do anything other than find Simpson guilty as charged.  But when an irresponsibly deranged California jury acquitted him, I learned a valuable lesson–no amount of evidence is ever going to be enough to convince people who just don’t want to be convinced.  And so it is, I think, with Barack Obama.  Proofs pour in daily that he is either the dumbest smart guy that ever served as President or he is a dedicated Marxist working diligently to establish socialism from sea to shining sea; yet there remain more than a few theoretically rational citizens (including some conservative pundits) who refuse to accept the horrible truth about the man for whom 64 and a half million voted.  Today’s unsavory exhibits are listed below, and you can peruse them at your leisure.

Anti-American Chinese War Anthem Played At White House State Dinner Last Week (The Daily Caller)

An anti-American Chinese propaganda song was performed at the White House last week as part of the festivities welcoming Communist Party leader Hu Jintao to the United States.

The song, known as “My Motherland,” was used as the theme song for the Mao-era Chinese war film “Battle on Shagganling Mountain,” reports The Epoch Times. Both the film and the song tell of a besieged group of Communist Chinese regulars fighting and defeating U.S. forces during the Korean War.

[…] A former People’s Liberation Army doctor living in the United States said that the performance was nothing less than a propaganda triumph for Chinese Communists. “In the eyes of all Chinese, this will not be seen as anything other than a big insult to the U.S., Philadelphia resident Yang Jingduan told The Epoch Times. “It’s like insulting you in your face and you don’t know it.  It’s humiliating.”

Was This Song Obama’s Personal Request?

[…]  This was no unintentional diplomatic faux pas. This was a crudely obvious, deliberate effort to smack down the United States and elevate China, as Mr. Lang makes crystal clear. The news of this song being played at the White House was met with knowing celebration by patriotic Chinese, and with shock and disgust by patriotic Americans.

From American Thinker:

The song Lang Lang played describes how beautiful China is and then near the end has this verse, “When friends are here, there is fine wine /But if the jackal comes /What greets it is the hunting rifle.” The “jackal” in the song is the United States.

The Importance of “Face” in Chinese Culture

The concept of ‘face’ roughly translates as ‘honour’, ‘good reputation’ or ‘respect’.  There are four types of ‘face’:

  • Diu-mian-zi: this is when one’s actions or deeds have been exposed to people.
  • Gei-mian-zi: involves the giving of face to others through showing respect.
  • Liu-mian-zi: this is developed by avoiding mistakes and showing wisdom in action.
  • Jiang-mian-zi: this is when face is increased through others, i.e. someone complementing you to an associate.

It is critical you avoid losing face or causing the loss of face at all times.

From The Concept of Losing Face In China:

There is a proverb that is good for you to know, “A person needs face as a tree needs its bark.” So, when you are in China avoid talking negatively about yourself because you will probably not receive the reaction that you are looking for.

The Story Behind The Story of Chinese Delegation’s Meeting Last Week

Each and every one of our state governors has approved and allocated a certain amount of acres of their U.S. state land to be inhabited by Chinese communists –communists straight from China! They are to set up little towns and live here, supposedly for the purpose of producing Chinese products for sale in the U.S.A. The land the states are giving them for their little towns will be considered “foreign territory”!!! We are told that the laws of the state (in which these Chinese communists dwell) will apply to the communist Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ). Comment: If so, why are they allowed in here!??! Isn’t the whole set up unlawful??? There are 257 of these little communist towns to be built all over the United States. Go to this website and see the list of the states, and how many FTZ’s are to be erected in each and every state! Our nation is being peppered all over with these communist closed towns called “zones”! This insane brainstorm by Washington, D.C. officials was just recently discovered by alert citizens in the State of Idaho, where an FTZ is being built there, just south of Boise, Idaho, possibly 30,000 acres of Idaho is going to be used for that FTZ.

China holds $896 billion dollars of U.S. debt, much of it attributable to Barack Obama and the 110th and 111th Democratic Congresses.  Thanks to them, we don’t have much face left to lose.

But let’s let the man speak for himself.  Be Sure You’re RIGHT Then Go Ahead presents a sneak preview of Obama’s forthcoming State of the Union address, directly from the horse’s mouth.  Or, as the case may be, from the opposite end:

  1. directly from the horse’s mouth. Or, as the case may be, from the opposite end

    LOL! Definitely the opposite end.

    This news about the Chinese song played at the White House dinner is all over the web. Not a peep from the mainstream media, of course.

  2. samiam60 says:

    The Lame Stream Media has all but ignored this slap in the face at Obama’s State Dinner for our Chinese Enemy. Is this guy that arrogant that he thinks we will ignore such an insult. The Christmas Tree Ornaments were our first clue as to who his real Puppet Masters really are.

  3. He looks supremely irritated. I’ve always felt him sneering at America, but in this video, particularly the first 20 seconds, it’s very pronounced, the sneer. It really looks like he just wants to punch the camera because he knows we are all inside it.

    Creepier still, this is how he looks when he’s talking to people he thinks Ii>support him.

    • Bob Mack says:

      If he did punch the camera, he’d use the left hook.

    • AFVET says:

      Looks irritated.
      Believe me, he is.
      His rhetoric will be on display again tonight.
      He has never come up against this level of opposition in his lifetime.
      He has no idea how to deal with it, except for the fact that he controls the MSM to the extent of dismissing any idiotic diatribes that could affect him politically.
      The next two years will show US exactly what Obama is, and has.
      Obama’s hole was dug by him, and I’m fully confident in the fact that we should leave him there.

  4. “How are we gonna make sure we have the most innovative, dynamic economy in the world?” Prez asks in that preview above. Obviously he answers his own question with “all of us coming together and finding ground,” GOP, Dems and Independents. In other words, shut up and agree to more top-down authoritarian comprehensive econcomic regulatory planning. That’ll get us an innovative, dynamic economy, won’t it?

    Ugh.

    “Reform government so that it’s leaner and smarter????” ha ha ha ha

    Thanks for finding and sharing that little preview. I needed a laugh. I just sure hope all that double-talkin’ lip service doesn’t convince many people that he actually believes in the free market . . .

  5. Uhhh… that should be “he thinks support him.”

  6. samhenry says:

    Did I leave the text of Obama’s remarks to the Russian People following the airport blast. FOX News has maintained the full text of his remarks. They have disappeared and are only referenced elsewhere:

    “I strongly condemn this outrageous act of terrorism against the Russian people at the Domodedovo Airport. I want to express the solidarity of the American people with the Russian people in the aftermath of this premeditated attack against innocent civilians.

    Note the use of the Socialist/Communist buzz word “solidarity.” I don’t think Bush would have issued this communique to the “Soviets.”

  7. J.P. says:

    I cannot bring myself to watch ole blue lips pontificate tonight on the world’s stage. I am completely convinced that his fondest wish is to drive this great country into bankruptcy in order to install his new world order. For a long time, I resisted that line of thought, not quite believing that any man, rising to the highest position in the land, would actually seek to destroy the system established by our founders. I wrote a recent blog pointing out that public policy should be judged on effects rather than intentions. With this Marxist, we better pay attention not only to his intentions, but the effects of his policies. You cannot judge him by what he says, because he flat out lies to cover his true intent. I’ll let you guys tell me tomorrow what he said–I don’t have the stomach to watch it live.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Good Intentions was an exellent post, JP. Allow me to quote from it for the benefit of readers who have not yet visited your site:

      The only problem with measuring public policy by its effects, and not its intentions, is that intentions are here and now, and effects are measured only in the future. For example, the arguments against Obama care are couched in what the opponents think will happen in the future. To paraphrase Nancy Pelosi, “We have to wait until it happens before we’ll know if it is as bad as we think.”

      By that time, it will be too late.

    • AFVET says:

      I’m with you J.P.
      I would need a supply of barf bags handy, and I’m fresh out.

  8. AFVET says:

    Blind ignorance is a formidable obstacle to overcome.

  9. anatheimp says:

    I saw a Youtube video last year by someone who knew him when he was at college, recalling just how strong his Marxist convictions were. As I said before, Bob, I find it difficult to believe that America sent this man to the White House.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Hi ANA. A remark by Anthony Martin at Conservative Examiner goes to the heart of the matter:

      Polls concerning Obama’s speech will no doubt portray the fickleness of the dumbed-down American public and their shocking susceptibility to visual images and sound bytes. Thinking people, however, will see right through the President’s facade.

      BTW, I much enjoy the learned & witty essays on your site across the “pond”, and I heartily urge readers tired of my mundane drivel to pay you a visit. They won’t be disappointed.

      • anatheimp says:

        Thanks, Bob, you are a honey. 🙂

        I finally got a chance to read your Vietnam memoir this evening. I just loved it; you write so well over such a varied range of experiences, some amusing, others horribly traumatic. Those rats…oh, yes, and the rodents as well. 🙂 As I told you, I intend to write my own piece on Vietnam, using your account as a supporting illustration, with your permission, of course. I’ll send you a copy before I publish.

        My grandfather, sadly now dead, served against the Japanese with the British Fourteenth Army in Burma during WW2 (he met Vinegar Joe!). He used to tell me lots of stories about jungle warfare, the kind of conditions and hazards that the soldiers had to face.

        You might like to know that I just got the boot into Hugo Chavez – yet again – on my blog.

        • Bob Mack says:

          Thanks, ANA. Like I’ve said elsewhere, the real soldiers were the grunts out in the bad bush, but it was a place and a time that I’ll certainly never forget. Long ago, I read a biography of “Vinegar” Joe Stilwell and the campaign in Burma. I’d have liked to have heard some of your grandfather’s stories.

    Re: anatheimp. Checked out her blog as you suggested Bob. Ana–excellent blog and superb writing. I’ve added you to my blog roll. Great stuff.
