Pro-Communist Clark’s China Cuddling Confirmed

Allegations of “China cuddling” will come as no surprise to serious students of New Zealand’s 1999/2008 socialist Labour Government.

October 26, 2003, Helen Clark shakes hands with Chinese President Hu Jintao after signing two market access protocols between NZ and China at the Ruakura Research Centre.

Helen Clark, meets with Chinese President, Hu Jintao, at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, May 30, 2005.

From Breitbart:

A former New Zealand government courted China and France in an attempt to curb American and Australian influence in the Pacific, according to a leaked diplomatic cable published here Saturday.

New Zealand is also said to have formulated its anti-nuclear legislation, which caused a deep rift with Washington, because of a desire to trim its defense budget as well as for publicly stated ideological reasons.

The claims are made in a 2004 cable released by the WikiLeaks website under the heading “What we could not say in the mission programme plan,” the Dominion Post newspaper reported.

The cable said New Zealand’s Labour Party government, led by Helen Clark, flirted with China and France in the early 2000s “to curtail US and Australian influence in the region,” it said.

During a visit by the Chinese vice-minister for trade, “New Zealand Trade Minister (Jim) Sutton publicly claimed that China was New Zealand’s most important and valued trading partner, a claim that left Australian officials here scratching their heads in wonder.”

Clark currently holds the position of Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme – the third highest position in the U.N. She is also the chair of the United Nations Development Group.

While patriotic Kiwis are overjoyed that Clark no longer infects our body politic, her current position enables her to inflict damage on an international scale.

Chavez Consolidates Socialist Dictatorship

What a surprise!

From Reuters:

CARACAS, Dec 17 – Venezuela’s parliament gave President Hugo Chavez decree powers for 18 months on Friday, outraging opposition parties that accused him of turning South America’s biggest oil producer into a dictatorship.

The move consolidated the firebrand socialist leader’s hold on power after nearly 12 years in office, and raised the prospect of a fresh wave of nationalizations as the former paratrooper seeks to entrench his self-styled “revolution.”

Chavez had asked for the fast-track powers for one year, saying he needed them to deal with a national emergency caused by floods that drove nearly 140,000 people from their homes

But the Assembly, which is dominated by loyalists from his Socialist Party, decided to extend them for a year and a half.

That means the president can rule by decree until mid-2012, and can keep opposition parties out of the legislative process until his re-election campaign is well under way for Venezuela’s next presidential vote in December of that year.

The vote was part of a legislative onslaught to push through bills before a new National Assembly is seated on Jan. 5. Earlier on Friday, parliament passed a law making it easier for the government to nationalize banks and trim their profits.

It’s taken Chavez 12 years, but he’s almost there.

How long will it take Obama and the Democrats, if they are not roundly defeated in 2012?

Henry “New World Order” still seems to think he’s running U.S. foreign policy.

From the Communist Party of China International Department website:

NEW YORK, Dec. 8 — A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) met here on Wednesday with former U. S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to further develop bilateral relations.

Wang Jiarui, minister of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee, praised the important contributions Dr. Kissinger made to bilateral relations. Wang stressed China is willing to work with the United States to build a positive, cooperative and comprehensive bilateral relationship in 21st century.

Kissinger, who served as the top U.S. diplomat during the presidencies of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford in 1970s, said that U.S. and China are experiencing an important stage to further develop bilateral ties. He hoped that both countries will enhance strategic dialogue and cooperate in addressing common challenges.

Wang and Kissinger also exchanged views on international and regional issues of common concern.

When is somebody going to put this meddling old menace out to pasture?
