Obama’s Admiration of China – A Country with No Water

Cross-posted by Maggie at Maggie’s Notebook

“Everybody’s watching what’s going on in Beijing right now with the Olympics. Think about the amount of money that China has spent on infrastructure. Their ports, their train systems, their airports are vastly the superior to us now which means if you are a corporation deciding where to do business you’re starting to think, Beijing looks like a pretty good option.”

The problem is, China has no water. Beijing may look sleek and gorgeous at the Olympics, but the truth is, water is an apocalyptic issue to the Chinese.

Beijing, the business environment admired by Senator Obama, is a northern city – where the water is not. Forget the reports of diverting water from farmers for the Olympics; that’s no big deal, but what is a big deal is that Beijing’s water supply is down to one-third of the supply available just ten years ago. MSNBC reported that despite China’s efforts to quell the use of water by farmers and move industry out of the city, Beijing’s water has dropped by two-thirds in ten years:

BEIJING – When 16,000 athletes and officials show up this summer, they will be able to turn the taps and get drinkable water — something few Beijing residents ever have enjoyed.

China has a long history of championing water conservation, but with an exploding population and often less-than responsible regulatory policies, few measurable results are evident.

In May 2000 the Earth Policy Institute reported that the water table underneath the city of Beijing fell by eight feet, and since 1965 the water table has fallen nearly 200 feet.

In November 2007, The International Herald Tribune confirmed that the underground water table beneath Shijiazhuang, China is “steadily running dry.”

The underground water table is sinking about four feet a year. Municipal wells have already drained two-thirds of the local groundwater.

In the 1950’s, Shijiazhuang was home to 335,000 people. Today, the population of the city and its surrounds is in excess of 9 million. Increased population, accelerated housing and commercial development, combined with policies that have sometimes allowed building at the “lowest points in the city’s water table,” have created a mammoth problem.

China’s disadvantage, compared with the United States, is that it has a smaller water supply yet almost five times as many people. China has about 7 percent of the world’s water resources and roughly 20 percent of its population. It also has a severe regional water imbalance, with about four-fifths of the water supply in the south.

Throughout the country groundwater shows unacceptable levels of contamination. From WorldWatch Intitute:

The water in Zhao Bo’s village on the outskirts of Beijing was a sickly shade of green. After drinking from the local well, Zhao and his fellow villagers could not go a month without suffering from diarrhea.

From SciDev.net:

[BEIJING] Some 65 million Chinese rely on underground water supplies that are heavily contaminated with arsenic or fluoride, according to the first national survey of the quality of the country’s supply of drinking water.

Another problem: China can only barely feed it’s people, and water is part of the problem.

China’s plan to self-feed 95% of its population “within 12 years,” faces huge challenges. Current facts reveal the enormity of the task.

Vice Minister of Water Resources, Hu Siyi, recently announced a price increase on water usage to the consumer. Siyi cited the country’s “low-level” of efficiency of agricultural water usage. According to the Vice Minister, 70% of China’s water is used for agricultural purposes.

In February 2008, China announced an increase in the country’s “minimum purchasing price for wheat and rice,” in an effort to protect the profit levels of the farming industry:

The announcement said the minimum purchasing price for different types of rice ranges from 75 yuan (about US$10.4) to 79 yuan per 50 kilograms; while that for wheat ranges between 70 yuan and 75 yuan.

Last year the minimum purchasing price for wheat and rice stood at 69 to 72 yuan and 70 to 75 yuan, respectively.

I can’t think of anything (and I’ve spent some time thinking about it) in China that is superior – certainly not “vastly superior” to the U.S. Trains? China must have them; the people cannot afford autos. Ports? China cranks out the goods to the West, but we are certainly capable of receiving them in our ports. Airports: I count twelve major airports for China’s huge population. Getting around this enormous country must be hell.

Obama: not much thought given to his remarks – trying to convince Americans how very disadvantaged we are. Most Americans know better.

Obama’s Global Poverty Act – Here’s the Evil in S.2433

Cross-posted by Maggie at Maggie’s Notebook

The issues are staggering, and while we might be compelled to believe that these things can never happen to America, read the following and see if you still feel, in today’s devious world political climate that these evils cannot surmount our freedoms.

Barack Obama’s Global Poverty Act will undoubtedly cost the U.S. billions in new monies for foreign aid, but that’ not the most important issue.

All text in red and all bold text is Maggie’s emphasis.

Is Senator Obama’s Global Poverty Act (Senate Bill 2433) tied to the United Nations, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) or the U.N.’s Millennium Development Goal (MDG) in anyway?

Yes. S.2433, the language of the Bill says: “A bill to REQUIRE the President to develop and IMPLEMENT,” “the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal.Senator Obama’s S.2433 cannot be separated from the U.N. Millennium Development Goal.

Who implements S.2433 after the President “creates” a plan?
The Secretary of State, Condoleesa Rice, her appointees with Congressional oversight by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the Senate Appropriations Committee, the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the House Appropriations Committee.

What do we know about the United Nations Development Program (UNDP)?
Follow the links and be prepared for sudden nausea.

The UN Corrupting Itself – A Chavez Connection

Does S.2433 require a specific strategy (some believe that it does not)?
The Bill says that we [the U.S.] will IMPLEMENT the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal? Can it be any clearer?

Does The Global Poverty Act subjugate the United States to the will of the United Nations?
Yes, and it does so through the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goal. It is important to remember that the MDG is a U.N. program.

The following is the proof that the MDG is a “tax on the world” levied by the United Nations. The text addresses only the requirements to be placed upon the U.S. and other countries, it leaves out most of the goal of eradicating poverty and disease, and focuses on how that eradication will be accomplished. Text taken directly from the U.N. General Assembly Millennium Forum.

The Forum (urges, advocates, calls upon or insists): The United Nations

To introduce binding codes of conduct for transnational companies and effective tax regulation on the international financial markets, investing this money in programmes for poverty eradication.

Here’s a tax on international finances! Who are transnational companies?

To explore the feasibility of a legally binding convention on overcoming poverty, to be drafted in effective consultation and partnership with people living in poverty themselves.

To carry out the objective of moving towards the abolition of war by practical means, the United Nations Secretariat and interested Governments, or a separate group of Governments, should develop a draft proposal for global disarmament to be discussed in a fourth special session of the General Assembly on disarmament.

Someone, I think Orwell, said War is evil, but it is often the lesser evil. The U.N. plans for globalism, with the U.N. at the head of the snake, to abolish war. They think they are God.

To respect national sovereignty and the prohibition of the use of force, which are fundamental in the Charter of the United Nations. This principle must not be undermined. In the solution of conflicts, all peaceful methods in accordance with Chapter 6 of the Charter must be tried before measures of force are undertaken in accordance with Chapter 7. The General Assembly should set up a broad commission to analyse standards for forceful action in cases where crimes against humanity, war crimes or genocide are committed.

1) The U.N.’s “prohibition” of force is not to be undermined.
2) How does a global principle protect anyone’s sovereignty?
3) “Peaceful method” means un-acted upon Resolutions – we have painful historical reminders. .

To expand the United Nations arms register in order to show the production and sale of small arms and light weapons. It should include specific names of their producers and traders.

Our Second Amendment rights monitored by the United Nations.

Together with nearly all Governments that participated in the recent Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review conference, Forum participants consider that unilateral deployment of nationwide missile defence by any country could have dangerously destabilizing effects and create pressures to permanently retain high levels of nuclear weapons or even to increase existing levels. The deployment of theatre missile defences in Asia or other regions could have serious regional destabilizing effects. Such plans should be relinquished in favour of a worldwide missile launch warning system and a conference to review methods of ending production of long-range surface-to-surface missiles and long-range bombers

To establish a commission at the United Nations to devise ways of stopping the technological development of new and more advanced weapons that create new imbalances in global power relationships. The Conference on Disarmament should also establish a working group on this subject.

The U.S. met their non-proliferation goals five years early, while the U.N. was enabling Iran to grow its nuclear program.

1) No long-range bombers for the U.S.
2) No surface-to-surface missiles for the U.S.
3) No missile defense for the U.S.
4) No new technological development
5) No more power to protect our nation

To initiate a worldwide freeze on armed forces and a 25 per cent cut in production and export of major weapons and small arms, and to that end to adopt an international code of conduct on arms exports, as the beginning of worldwide build-down of conventional forces.

That’s a “worldwide freeze” on armed forces – on our Marines, our Army, our Navy, our Reserves, our Coast Guard! AND an international “code of conduct” to implement a “build-down” of conventional forces.

To increase their efforts to promote and to comply with international humanitarian laws, limiting the methods and means of war and protecting non-combatants, civilian populations and humanitarian personnel.

The international community civil society, Governments and the United Nations has a responsibility to stop promptly any genocide, war crimes or any massive violations of human rights. All those involved should seek to avoid any confusion between humanitarian help and military intervention.

Internationalism governs. Sovereignty is abolished. The United Nations Security Council reigns. Islam is implemented throughout the world.

Globalization needs defining.…it is transforming our world into a global villageWe, of all ages, in particular our future generation the youth claim a space for that transnational civil society that even now is rising on the world scene with unprecedented ties, networking, exchanges and common action among peoples, groups, communities and organizations.

The youth of the world will “claim a space” for “that transnational civil society” in the world’s “global village…” Where might that “space” be? Do the people in that “space” have a say about the youth’s claims? Again, for emphasis: a transnational civil society

To develop a legally binding framework for regulating the actions of transnational corporations (TNCs), respecting the international labour, human rights, and sustainable environmental standards set by the United Nations and its relevant specialized agencies. The regulatory mechanism should include the active participation of workers and communities directly affected by TNC operations in order to prevent abuses and to subordinate TNCs to democratic civil authority and community-based modelling of socio-economic systems.

As I look around the web, I find no list of the evil-doing transnational corporations. If the U.N. plans to “subordinate” the transnationals to “civil authority” and “community-based modelling,” we need to know who the culprits are. Could Google be on the list? Nah. Halliburton? I think so. “Big Oil” – oh yeah, but only careful “subordination” here, because the world needs “Big Oil” tax money, as well as its investment in exploration and drilling. Oh…there’s always “nationalizing” the world’s oil fields. The Islamic countries know how to drill for oil. They rule the U.N. Very convenient – but this is only a guess.

To examine and regulate transnational corporations and the increasingly negative influence of their trade on the environment. The attempt by companies to patent life is ethically unacceptable.

What does this mean, and who is patenting the life of others?

To move towards democratic political control of the global economy so that it may serve our vision.

The vision: The U.N. controlling a global economy – to serve the U.N.’s vision

How is a democracy defined within the hallowed halls of the U.N.? You and I don’t have a clue but we know such democracies will be “subordinated” to the U.N.’s “civil society”

To develop migration policies, both emigration and immigration, in conformity with human rights standards, particularly to respect the global principle of freedom of circulation for all.

This is terrifying, really. The goal is to remove the sovereignty of our borders. We need to get up each morning with the idea of the U.N.’s “global principle of freedom of circulation” vision, think about it again at noon, and let it be the last thing we think about before sleep, because surely we will offer up a prayer to the Almighty that our leaders will repel this disgusting organization.

To make serious commitments to restructure the global financial architecture based on principles of equity, transparency, accountability and democracy, and to balance, with the participation of civil society organizations, the monetary means to favour human endeavour and ecology, such as an alternative time-based currency.

Restructuring the global financial architecture? Alternative time-based currency?

Sustainable funds could be raised through a currency transfer tax,…which could also help to reduce currency speculation, and a tax on the rental value of land and natural resources.

Here’s the tax on currency transfers and land. When has the MSM reported this. When has Barack Obama spoken of this?

Stop imposing economic sanctions, which deprive people of their basic economic, social and environmental rights and which make their struggle for survival, as well as for civil and political rights, more difficult.

We can make the case that sanctions are worthless, as it is the U.N. which strengthens them. Iraq and Saddam Hussein comes immediately to mind, especially the Oil-for-Food Program. Then and now, there’s Iran. How does the U.N., always wanting diplomatic solutions to prevail, propose that we deal with tyranny ?

To fully incorporate women into leadership at every level and gender perspectives into all its operations; to hold Governments accountable for their obligations to promote and protect the human rights of women and girls; and to act as monitors of the implementation of commitments to end discrimination and violence against women and girls.

When it comes to Women’s Rights, (or human rights for that matter) the worst offenders are Muslim countries. It’s all is a matter of “degree,” isn’t it? I notice at the Millennium Development Goal monitoring sites, some Arab countries have shown some degree of improvement. What does that mean? How has it changed the life of women under the control of Islam and their Islamic male dominaters? The free world will finance achieving this goal? Think again.

To establish a global habitat conservation fund to purchase comprehensive protection of threatened, critical ecological habitat worldwide. The fund should accrue revenues from a nominal (0.5 -1.0 per cent) royalty on worldwide fossil energy production oil, natural gas, coal, collecting at least $5 billion to $10 billion annually.

Here’s the tax on fossil fuels that is continually denied.

End of text from Millennium Forum.

A tax on fossil fuels, land, currencies, etc.? Investor’s Business Daily didn’t make it up, Lee Cary at American Thinker didn’t make it up.

You can “monitor” the Millennium goals by country beginning here, although you won’t learn much. Most of what we want and need to know falls into the “Insufficient Information” category.

I reject the U.N. and everything it stands for, because everything it stands for is against the best interests of Americans and freedom anywhere, and usually is intent on feathering the nests of a U.N. diplomat and a cozy relationship with the worst of the terrorizing scums on the face of the earth.

There are 21 co-sponsors of S.2433:

The usual RHINO’s support this traitorous Bill: Susan Collins, Chuck Hagel, Richard Lugar, and Olympia Snowe. Gordon Smith (R-OR) is also a co-sponsor and I do not have much information on him. He’s from Oregon, so…

How Fed Up Are YOU With Gas Prices?

There are two petitions going around telling Congress to get off their collective butts and let us start drilling our own oil on our own property.

Now, why haven’t we done this before? Just WHY are we dependent on foreign oil? Thank your local green lobby and irrational, liberal environmentalist. Because of their “green” policies over the past thirty years (years which could have been spent building infrastructure and exploring alternative energy avenues) they have systematically blocked any and all attempts. Yet, they are the ones screaming the loudest about “wars for oil” and “get us off foreign oil”.

Well, the time has come to tell them to shut up and sit down. Their policies have failed and failed miserably. We have sufficient oil to last us for centuries on our own shores. These same environmentalists who won’t let us drill our own oil in the Gulf or off Florida don’t seem to be screaming very loudly when Cuba and China are doing exactly that. We have capped oil wells we can uncap and use while building the infrastructure of new pipelines and new refineries. We can also start building nuclear plants. Nuclear has matured and is clean energy.


I was born in a town with oil reserves–storage tanks for literally MILES full of oil–and a refinery. When we moved to Arizona in 1972, we still payed $0.25 per gallon of “ethyl”. There weren’t pipeline and transportation costs as the refinery was right there. We competed on the oil company’s swim team–statewide against other oil company’s teams. I KNOW the oil is here and waiting to be uncapped and used.

The snail darter, the spotted owl, the caribou–they are NOT more important than humans. It’s time liberal environmentalists understood that.

Now, I’m providing two buttons for two petitions demanding Congress do something productive by overriding the screeching environmentalists who can’t make up their mind on saving some non-human species or getting us off foreign oil and ORDER the wells uncapped, infrastructure built and drilling our own oil. I also suggest you mention they need to repeal the ethanol mandates as ethanol is proving to be a worldwide disaster. You don’t burn food for fuel. And for the rest of you who want the real story of the harm caused by the liberal environmentalists, I suggest the following book:


It will be a very interesting read as to the true story of ethanol. the millions dead since the banning of DDT (the only truly effective pesticide against malarial mosquitos), the Yellowstone and catastrophic forest firests, water pollution and the estrogen connections with fish deformaties–and who caused these disasters? That’s right–liberal environmentalists with an agenda.

If you’re fed up with the screwing around in Washington, if you’re tired of depending on foreign oil from countries that hate us (and their instability), if you’re tired of the lunatic “green” policies passing as science and costing you more and more money to fund failed policies through your tax dollars, if you’re fed up with KNOWING we have the resources here and the liberal environmentalists won’t let us utilitize our own resources and if you really want to vent your spleen (POLITELY!) about your feelings to Congress, then go to each of these places and sign the petitions.

Petition No. One:

Petition No. Two:

Go sign the petitions, pick up the book and let your voice be heard. Don’t let the followers of the goracle, the hysterical scammers and the insane policies of the liberal environmentalists who really don’t give a hoot about the environment bankrupt you or this country any further. It’s time to get serious, use our own resources and quit allowing these loons to do their best to turn us into a third world country.
