Subject: Hillary: We won’t let human rights get in the way of trade with China

Is this the China Hardball Nanheyarchuan though Team Obama would bring to the table? What about Biden and his past approval of Intelligence sharing on the USSR? The Clinton years saw the worst offenses when it came to China a Security. " Amnesty International and a pro-Tibet group voiced shock Friday after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed not to let human rights concerns hinder cooperation with China. Paying her first visit to Asia as the top US diplomat, Clinton said the United States would continue to press China on long-standing US concerns over human rights such as its rule over Tibet. “But our pressing on those issues can’t interfere on the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis and the security crisis,” Clinton told reporters in Seoul just before leaving for Beijing. T. Kumar of Amnesty International USA said the global rights lobby was “shocked and extremely disappointed” by Clinton’s remarks."

You cannot go to China and ask for money and scream human rights-When the elite of USA have robbed and compromised the entire banking system- CHina will say "R U out of your mind?" Note what Clinton said about China buying US bonds. This trip was essentially a US surrender to CHina. Really. Teach ur grand kids Mandarin- it coming and its coming hard and fast.= (and u thought Spanish was a pain LOL).

Dear Mr. President,

Thank you for autographing the pictures taken in the cabinet
room before Ron Brown's delegation to China.  The trip seemed to
be an economic and diplomatic triumph.

One of the highlights was observing Ron Brown in the way he
represented the United States.  His diplomatic skills were
superb, particularly in the meeting with Li Peng.  He deftly
navigated the human rights issues by obtaining an agreement on
further talks, and then moved directly into the economic issues
at hand, i.e. helping Chrysler, Sprint and others with their
joint ventures

The twenty-five CEOs were all very impressed with his
diplomatic and commercial skills.  We all hoped that you and
your Administration could find increasing ways to utilize these

Thanks again for the great pictures.

Keep up the good work!

Sanford R. Robertson


P.S. - Bob Rubin came to our home on Thursday for a Dianne
Feinstein dinner, which raised over $100,000 for her campaign.
Bob, of course, turned out the financial community and Silicon

bcc:  Ronald H. Brown, Secretary of Commerce
