Bo Xi Lai, Mass Murderer?

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 25, 2012


Bad boy Bo, the owner of a one child policy dunce who is at Harvard and hiding out right now, is alleged to have killed off over 100 people in an airplane explosion.
Here is the excerpt
“Disgraced former Chongqing Communist Party secretary Bo Xilai and his wife Gu Kailai have now been rumored to be involved in a slew of other deaths, including blowing up a plane in 2002 to kill the wife of a rival politician.”

My question is, he’s a member of the communist party, isn’t this what they do? I mean, is this a crime in china?

What’s a few lives, china has assloads of spares. Homicides are as much a part of Chinese history as horrible hygiene and fraud.

Ps I’d like to congratulate Harvard on harboring the thugs they do. The blood red Chicoms with death on their hands send off their tainted seed to places like Harvard, who is throat deep in welcoming them….

Chinese Patient Spits Out Bloody Syringe, Dr Says, Oops I Forgot It

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 25, 2012


A Chinese guy had an operation, and of course, the doctor aka some Chinese idiot who wears a smock, but other than that has no more idea about the human body than you or I, ouled it up.

Excerpt

Fifty-year-old Zhang Hua had an operation on his nose at the First People’s Hospital in Hubei on March 22. He was given routine anesthesia during the operation. After the operation, Zhang started to feel ill and had difficulty speaking. He said: “When I came to after the anesthetic had worn off, I had an awful pain in my throat.” The doctor told him it was a normal reaction after the operation.

Zhang, after four hours, vomited and spit out a syringe. He told the reporter: “After vomiting some blood, I felt something stick in my mouth. It was covered in blood, and I threw it in a trash can before I realized it was a syringe barrel.”

Communist China=Mafia Thug Rule

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 25, 2012


Here are some great comments from the Wall Street Journal. The article was about the Bo Xilai debacle etc. The guy named Dan Laroque seems to have China nailed…

Comments from here

Dan Laroque
How many more Heywoods are out there acting as get-rich-drones for the Communist Party in China? Essentially, Heywood was an enabler for the Bo machine. One is reminded of the God Father movies.

It concerns me that the British and American governments do not fine clever ways to track such people seeking to compromise our national security by enabling Chinese moguls for profit. Essentially, the Heywood types can’t make it in Britain or the US so they “go native” in China, come to enjoy the lavish lifestyle of corruption, and then seek the protection of their citizenship when things go wrong. They also enable the off shore movement of cash out of China and I suspect Heywood held cash and investments for the Bo Machine in Britain. How else can they pay for the high tuition at Harvard?

It bothers me that the WSJ stories on this topic completely fail to get at the corrupt role Heywood had to have played in the Bo Machine. It seems to me that the WSJ, owned by Murdoch, is taking a decidedly soft tone because Heywood is a Brit. Heywood was killed because he knew way way too much and had to have been involved in enabling the corruptions Bo’s wife is thought to have committed.

Most Americans do not understand that the Communist Party in China is a loose consortium of mafia-like dons. You climb the ladder by drinking and sucking up. It is a total unquestioning loyalty system, much like the mafia. It is a “gambay” culture. AS one rises ever higher “face” – reputation – becomes hypersensitive important. One must be most careful not to overly advertise one’s importance while at the same time knowing when and how to crush dissent or one’s enemies. When they drink the trick is to not get drunk, not say the wrong thing, and stay in control.

To say Heywood did not drink is the biggest lie ever. There is no way he was not “gambaying” on command. Anyone saying otherwise does not know China and Chinese politics. Drinking for political gain starts day one in any career. Even the women. Most Americans and British have no clue about Chinese culture.

He went to the meeting because it would have been cultural insult NOT to go. In China there is a strong high requirement to comply with one’s Don. The Bo wife was a Don and there is no way he would have ignored her, if he wanted to stay in China. Heywood very likely had assets in China that he could not have kept should he ignore her. Most Americans have virtually NO clue what China is like. All business is conducted based on trust and family ties. Heywood was a trusted enabler, but NOT part of the family. He was only trusted to the extent that he enabled their corruption. By committing crimes for them his level of trust increased, enabling him to get rich and live a lavish lifestyle.

The same thing happens in the drug cartels and the mafia. After you have made “hits” you come to be trusted. Well, Bo’s wife got investigated and went off the deep end since she suspected someone was rating the family out. Heywood, the foreigner, would be highly suspect, even if he did nothing. Family is everything in China and there is no way he was family. His murder had to have come about because he knew things in too much detail. Heywood was expendable.

I suspect that Heywood was killed because, as the foreigner, he could be used as a way for the family to set an example for the Chinese members of the family machine. If you get out of line, we will kill you just as we did Heywood. It fell apart when the police chief, the “hit man” for the family, got scared and ran to the US Consulate. Heywood probably never said a thing. He was expendable and a dead Heywood would send a powerful message.

The problem that the Communist Party has is that of now seeming to be what they are – a privileged mafia like operation. The kids drive Ferrari’s and go to Harvard. In other words, they can even corrupt Harvard at will. I’d love to see the SATs of the kids.

Pretty Beijing, Ugly Beijing- Air Pollution in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 25, 2012


These two photos were taken a few days apart. They show how horrible the smog can be in Beijing. In the photo where you can actually see the sky, the smog level was almost 50, or what most countries would be consider to be bad. In China, however, it is a great day.
In the other pic, the pollution was like 370 or something and the air felt like an acid wash. Those days you can feel your lungs suffering from the pollutants.

Chinese Instructions

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 25, 2012


Why do the Chinese write so many instructions when they never bother to follow them? Also, with such cludgey sentences, who could follow them anyway?

Chinese Acrobat or Construction Workers?

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 25, 2012


It is no wonder Chinese are so good at acrobatics, just look at these Chinese construction workers. They are 30-40 up in the air and are not tied down whatsoever.

They are Chinese migrant workers which means that to the slave owners/communist party member, they are expendable. After all, China has an excess of 5.2 billion limbs including arms and legs.

The funny thing is that these guys seem too worried about toppling from this rig to do a quality job. But then again, what is quality in China?

Murder Milk in China- Another Day, More Toxic Chinese Products

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 25, 2012


China has created yet another weapon of mass destruction- milk. No this is not that mela-milk that only killed 60 or so and harmed a few hundred thousand, that is last year’s news. Their newest product is much more potent. This product has killer bacteria.
My question is – is this really just part of enfocing the one child policy and keeping populaiton under control?

Story here
Excerpt:
“Two brands of Chinese infant formula have been found to contain fatal bacteria, according to the Guangdong Provincial Administration for Industry and Commerce’s latest report.
Two brands, Happy Prince Dairy and Cradle Milk Dairy in northeast Heilongjiang province, were found to contain a life-threatening bacteria. ”

China-Tibet Highway Collapses Two Times in Over One Year!

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 25, 2012


China defines quality different than civilized countries. In China, quality means- amount of money I can get in kickbacks and then send my kids overseas where I will soon escape- see Bo GuaGua.

Here is an excellent blurb from the Big Banging BrewMan!!

“A section of the Sichuan-Tibet highway collapsed – for the SECOND TIME since 2010!!!

http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/90882/7795169.html

“More than 150 vehicles and over 400 people were stranded on a section of the Sichuan-Tibet Highway in southwest China’s Tibet autonomous region Sunday following a roadbed collapse.

The collapse occurred at about 8 a.m. Sunday on the Sichuan-Tibet Highway in the Suotong Village section in Bomi County, Tibet. Local police said that the collapse occurred after a long-term weakening of the roadbed due to the proximity of a barrier lake.

Armed police and traffic police have been dispatched to the scene to clear and maintain the road, evacuate people and conduct traffic restrictions in the area.

This section of the road lies beside a river, and has a complex geological condition. The continuous rainfall and water seeping into the roadbed from a nearby river led to the collapse of the 70-meter-long stretch of roadbed. The remaining one meter could crumble at any time, said Zhang Zhanwu, chief commander of the repairing teams.

Forty policemen, two excavators and two loaders have been organized to assist with rescue efforts.

Traffic is expected to resume at about 8 p.m., the police said.

This section of the highway collapsed back in July, 2010. An 800-meter-long stretch of roadbed and a 76-meter-long bridge were destroyed, leading to a 16-day traffic disruption at that time.”

ps. the pic is of an umbrella that I bought and the first day I used it, the handle broke. Why am I not surpised?
