Babies or Purchase: Rich Chinese Want to Become Americans, Part 2

Chinese-banner_eb5    Another way Chinese nationalists can become American citizens is the relatively unknown State Department ‘buy citizenship’ program for million/billionaires from around the world. Most taking part, however, are from China.

James O’Toole of CNN Money writes: “Under the government’s EB-5 Immigrant Investor program, foreign investors can get conditional visas that allow them and their families to live, work and attend school in the U.S. To qualify for the visa, they must invest at least $1 million in a new or recently created business, or $500,000 for businesses in rural or high-unemployment areas.”

The State Department expected 6,000 ‘investor visas’ in the 2012-13 fiscal year.  “Our goal is certainly job creation, and that’s what this program is all about . . . it’s allowing somebody from a foreign country to come and invest in our nation,” says Bill Wright of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Investors must prove they created or preserved 10 full-time jobs for U.S. workers over two years. Once established, investors and their families move to permanent resident status, and can apply for full citizenship in three years.

A study from the Center for China and Globalization and the Beijing Institute of Technology reports: “150,000 Chinese––most of them wealthy––emigrated to other countries in 2011. While that number may not seem high for a country of more than a billion people, the flight of China’s richest––and the offshoring of their fortunes––could cost the country jobs and economic growth.”

The Wall Street Journal estimates some $ 225 billion flowed out of China in 2012. CNBC Reporter, Robert Frank establishes:  “The United States was the top destination for wealthy Chinese in 2011, according to the report. Canada and Australia came second and third.

“The United States had granted 87,000 permanent resident permits to Chinese nationals in 2011. Of those, 3,340 P1-BK739_EB5_jm_G_20130318181804were approved through special investment visas, which allows wealthy foreigners to apply for American citizenship if they agree to invest more than $500,000 on job-creation projects. The program has become largely Chinese, with more than more than two thirds of all of the visas granted going wealthy citizens of mainland.”

Seattle Times reporter Sanjay Bhatt reveals: “China’s superrich, who have historically been drawn to San Francisco, Los Angeles and Vancouver, B.C., are investing in Seattle-area real estate in growing numbers, buying multimillion-dollar homes, rent-producing properties and land for commercial development.”

In a copious article, she establishes:  1) Chinese purchasers pay all cash, even for purchases over $ 2 million; 2) They quickly squeeze out other buyers qualifying for financing or offering lower prices; 3) They sometimes pay hundreds of thousands more for properties than the original listing price; 4) The number of Chinese buyers has increased as much as 50% since 2007, etc.

Like we said in Part 1, ‘kudos’ to this nation’s politicians who opened trade talks years ago in order to make China richer and Americans poorer.  If that was their goal, they surely accomplished it.  Now let’s go out and vote for them again, so they can give away what’s left of the good ‘old’ U.S.A.!

Once again proving ‘we are all equal’ Communism fails, and Capitalism which sells out its own country is on the verge of failing also.  As for the creators of the EB-5 investor immigration program, wholesale Christian books explains:  “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools (Romans 1: 22)”

Not Just U.S.: Global Warming Winter Also Horrific for England

posted by Shopping4Bargains @ 11:00 AM

Floods-moorlandThe United States must move profit out of the home energy business, or at least fine companies more concentrated on making money than providing services.   It is untenable that citizens in “the richest country on earth” are expected to live in their homes without power in these freezing temperatures.  Moreover, foreign ownership of American power companies must end. The same apply to England!

In Great Britain, unbelievably powerful wind and rain storms have produced unheard of flooding resulting in destroyed homes, businesses, railroad lines, even separating homes from neighborhoods putting them on disconnected islands. reveals: “Stormy weather has left thousands of homes without power, as trains are cancelled amid battering winds and severe flood warnings. . . . winds in the south-west were likely to continue along a similar sort of strength.”

In their rolling 22-plus page Blog with graphic imagery, the Guardian revealed Great Britain has suffered 23 days of rain––91% higher than the average. This has been the wettest December and January for England for some 248 years.

The Met Office forecaster warned to expect wind gusts of 60 – 70 mph. The Environment Agency issued extreme flood warnings in some areas.  Even the Prince of Wales called it a ‘tragedy’ that officials had not done more to help British citizens.  He and other royals pledged 100,000 pounds to help flood victims.

Prince “Charles’s comments came amid growing anger over a perceived lack of government action to help flood-hit Flooding-Englandareas on the Levels.  Residents have begged the Environment Agency to start dredging, with many complaining they are living in ‘third world’ conditions with ‘overflowing’ septic tanks.”

The Coast Guard evacuated residents from some 30 houses. Gigantic battering sea waves have officials advising people to stay away from sea shores.  Most livestock is stuck in mud. Common Englishmen suffer immeasurably.

Meanwhile––just as in the U. S.––liberal and conservative politicians argue over how repairs will be paid for.  While royalty has visited some affected areas, as of yesterday, the Prime Minister had not, about which one victim wrote:  “The longer The PM puts off a visit to Somerset, the angrier the people will get.”

And just as in the U.S., obviously politicians in England have done little, if anything, to prepare for Global Warming.  In fact, rather than financing preparation for coming destructions, their Parliament has cut back on repairs and defenses:

“New money to help communities recover from horrendous flooding simply acknowledges that the Coalition was wrong to cut flood defense investment and maintenance. . . [Politician] Eric Pickles’ . . . decision to remove councils’ duty to prepare for climate change impacts back in 2010 puts countless households at risk.  Unless the Government plans for how climate change is set to dramatically worsen flooding, then this knee-jerk crisis management will happen again and again.”

Those politicians who willfully ignore Global Warming’s coming destruction surely face God’s Judgment.  As used Christian Bibles promise: “For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries (Hebrews 10: 26 – 27).

Rich Chinese Come Here to Have Babies So They Can Be Americans

Chinese-babies        Perhaps its because smog-filled air there is difficult to breathe, or it is too dangerous to eat disease-filled chicken there, or because Communism is a failed system making a very few extremely rich, or because Chinese parents want a better life for their children––for whatever reason Chinese citizens now flock to America.

In ‘I Want an American Baby! Chinese Women Flock to the U.S. to Give Birth,’ Hannah Beech quotes the Chinese father of a new-born who traveled to this country with his very pregnant wife:  “America is the strongest country in the world. We want our child to have the best future.”

Beech clarifies: “The U.S. is one of the few nations where simply being born on its soil confers citizenship on a newborn. That policy has spawned a birth-tourism industry, in which pregnant foreigners flock to American hospitals to secure U.S. passports for their babies.”

When the child is 21, it can sponsor the parents for citizenship.  Meanwhile, “ . . .  these American-born kids can take advantage of the U.S. education system, even paying lower in-state fees for public universities. . . (California is a popular birth-tourism destination because of its well-known university system.)”

On the other hand, rather than coming here, some Chinese parents use U.S. surrogates to have their child.  Sophie Song explains, “Wealthy Chinese are turning to American women to serve as surrogates for their children, creating a small but growing business in $120,000 ‘designer’ American babies for China’s elite.”

Even further, Song writes: “Wealthy Chinese are not-so-secretly creating a race of genetically-superior designer Pregnant-Chinese-womanbabies by using American surrogates – and surprisingly, it’s a bargain despite price tags of $20,000 to $50,000.

“While most Chinese clients want to use their own eggs and sperm, some also seek ethnically Chinese egg donors, preferably with Ivy League degrees, to up the chance of their babies being born more intelligent than average.

“The business of American designer babies is growing fast enough that many U.S. fertility clinics and surrogacy agencies [have] Chinese-language websites and Mandarin speakers to cater to their clientele from mainland China.”

Let’s see how this works! For decades, politicians of both parties, and their corporate sponsors, have sent good paying American jobs to China, which in turn sends cheap, poorly-made products back to this country for Americans to buy, thus creating wealthy Chinese, who then have babies here so they can become Americans?  Wow! Great job fellas!  That’s the way to give this nation away.

Most ‘naturally born’ Chinese Americans are faithful and loyal citizens. But through these and other methods, questionably-loyal American politicians are giving away more of this nation to China which considers the U.S. its enemy.

Consider the story of King Hezekiah in wholesale Christian Bibles.  After winning a great war against Assyria (Syria), Hezekiah faced further threats when  covert ambassadors from Babylon (Iran) paid a visit.

As the king told Isaiah he had shown them all the nation’s wealth, the prophet screamed: “Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store unto this day, shall be carried into Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the LORD (2 Kings 20: 14 – 17).” Consider this U.S.!

More Flu Deaths, New Flu Strains, Spreading Illnesses in the U.S.

posted by Dr. Ad Versery Bored @ 17:58 PM
February 5, 2014

bird-flu-China-H1N1    As the U.S. battles hundreds of cases of H1N1 Flu, hundreds die in China from H7N9 Flu, Hong Kong slaughters thousands of chickens attempting to cull out the H7N9 bug, and Chinese scientists fear the spread of a different bird flu, labeled H10N8. It is the fifth new flu strain to explode upon the world in 17 years.

Chinese scientists report special concern to the Lancet Medical Journal because this new strain “appears to be able to infect tissue deep in the lung and may have features allowing it to spread efficiently among humans. . . . The pandemic potential of this novel virus should not be underestimated.”

As of today, California has reported 147 H1N1 flu-related deaths. Donna Westlund of claims:  “This number does not include an additional 44 deaths that are currently under investigation as being flu-related. If those cases are confirmed, the number of deaths due or related to the influenza virus in California residents under the age of 65 will rise to 191.”

The 2012-13 flu season only resulted in 106 flu-related deaths, a number reached in just one month this season. But last year’s H3N2 flu strain primarily attacked the sick and elderly, whereas H1N1 attacks young and healthy victims. As L.A. Times’ Eryn Brown writes:  “. . . at the same point last year, only 14 people in that age group had died of the flu.” He insists the numbers of death will rise.

Dr. Lyn Finelli of the CDC argues: “H1N1 is sending sufferers to the doctor at rates that are 50 percent higher than normal for flu-like symptoms. this is way above the norm, which signals that the U.S. is only halfway through flu season.”

According to the CDC’s ‘Flu View’Map, ending January 25, 2014,  Flu cases are extremely high in California, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Kansas, Missouri.

Dr. Jonathan Fielding who is “urging people to be immunized, stating that there is time to do so because the flu is going to be around for months.” His warning is especially for high-risk groups––the elderly, pregnant women and those with underlying illnesses. CDC does not publish total flu deaths, only those of children. Moreover, their insistence of limited monthly reports raises suspicions.

Few have published calculations of flu results because of the United States importing chicken from China.  But flu-passing-from-person-to-personwhat happens when China’s H7N9 virus reaches the U.S., or even when the new H10N8––which may pass from person to person––comes to this country? And even fewer publish the connection of these rising flu statistics during record cold, icy, below-zero temperature weather.

Increasing occurrences of various types of flu, along with upward multiple deaths indicate the possibility of rolling epidemics.  And symptoms of H10N8 multiply that possibility.  Chapter 6 of the Book of Revelation posits that such epidemics will bring millions of deaths in these end times.

2014 must become the year of prayer to The Merciful God “Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases (Psalm 103: 3),” in The Name of His Son:  “ . . . they that had any sick with divers [various] diseases brought them unto Him and He laid hands on every one of them, and healed them (Luke 4: 40).”

World Markets Admit Global Warming Affecting All Economies

posted by Ida B. Wells IV @ 16:52 PM
February 4, 2014

US-WEATHER-SNOW-MA    It may be happening drip by drip, but some economists finally admit that Global Warming contributes to international market declines. Lost work hours, school and shopping days––and most important lost lives––mean climate disruption is gradually shutting down world financial markets.

Fiona Harvey of the insists:  “The country may be warming up from the polar vortex, but the bone-chilling cold, snow and ice that gripped much of the country – affecting about 200 million people––brought about the biggest economic disruption delivered by the weather since super-storm Sandy in 2012.”  And it is well-proven that Global Warming caused Hurricane Sandy.

Evan Gold, senior vice-president at Planalytics, a business weather intelligence company told Harvey about the frigid cold: “There’s a lot of economic activity that didn’t happen,” Gold said. “Some of that will be made up but some of it just gets lost.  It’s a small fraction of a percent, but it’s still an impact.”

The Economic Collapse avers: “Last month, new manufacturing orders in the U.S. declined at the fastest pace that we have seen since December 1980. . . vehicles sales for Ford were down 7.5 % and . . . for GM were down 12 %.  Both companies are blaming bad weather. . . .If our economic troubles continue to mount, could we be facing a global ‘financial avalanche’ fairly quickly?”

In an article last fall, Harvey, environment correspondent, revealed:  “Climate change is already contributing to the deaths of nearly 400,000 people a year and costing the world more than $1.2 trillion, wiping 1.6% annually from global GDP, . . Air pollution caused by the use of fossil fuels is also separately contributing to the deaths of at least 4.5m people a year.”

She quoted from ‘Climate Vulnerability Monitor: A Guide to the Cold Calculus of A Hot Planet’ by the DARA group and the Climate Vulnerable Forum, which estimates poorer nations will soon lose 4% of GDP, while the U.S. could lose 2% of GDP and China will lose $ 1.2 trillion by 2030:

“While many governments have taken the view that climate change is a long-term problem, . . .a growing body of opinion that the effects are already being felt. . . . melting [Arctic sea ice] could be linked to cold, dull and rainy summers in parts of Europe––such as has been the predominant summer weather in the UK for the last six years. In global-warming-record-temperaturesthe US, this year’s severe drought has raised food prices and in India the disruption to the monsoon has caused widespread damage to farmers.”

In, the Union of Concerned Scientists summarize economic consequences of Global Warming. More than residential and commercial property and road and infrastructure damage, lost productivity will mean:

“Disruptions in daily life related to climate change can mean lost work and school days and harm trade, transportation, agriculture, fisheries, energy production, and tourism. Severe rainfall events and snowstorms can delay planting and harvesting, cause power outages, snarl traffic, delay air travel, and otherwise make it difficult for people to go about their daily business.”

In online Bible lessons, Apostle Paul prays:  “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling . . . (Ephesians 1: 18).”  Let us pray with him that we will soon understand the tremendous cost of Global Warming in time enough to do something about it!
