News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Oct. 20, 2017: One of them is brilliant; the other is an idiot.
If you don’t know which is which – go have a Reality Checkup right now.
They are both very dangerous to the world’s health for different reasons but with the tremendous destructive potential and since they control huge nuclear weapon stockpiles, call them very scary too.
Re-introducing the 2 Presidents from Hell – both in the news as usual and “featured” for the first time together in this week’s episode of Trump’s America and absolutely NOT available in China.
One of them is out of control; the other is in control of everything in his path. Think of them as one two sided monster if that works for you. Or a couple of frightening Halloween masks that are very real.
One of them right now is in his Glory in Beijing. The other is floundering around in Washington, DC as usual. Soon they will be getting together again. The more they cooperate the worse for the rest of us because Trump gets taken for a ride and XI becomes ever more powerful and repressive.
Let’s start with Chinese President Xi Jinping – the term “president” applied to him is euphemism for all powerful dictator. Xi is in the process of increasing his power over China and its people even more this week with the once every 5 year Communist Party Congress taking place in Beijing.
On Wednesday, Xi gave a marathon 3-hour speech. Imagine President Trump giving a 3-hour speech? Even more scary, not for its content as with Xi, but because how many insults, lies and ridiculous embarrassing statements Trump would make over the course of 3 hours?
Here is how The New York Times concludes its review of XI’s speech …
“Mr. Xi also made clear that he was the best leader to guide China into this new era. By using that phrase and others like it, Mr. Xi appeared to be making the case that he was to this new era what iconic Chinese leaders like Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping had been in their times.”
“Mr. Xi also held out China as a model for the new era, saying his country had developed its economy without imitating Western values. “It offers a new option for other countries and nations who want to speed up their development while preserving their independence,” he said.”
Let me explain why Xi is a brutal cut throat by explaining what Xi means above in this Times article. First as much power as previous so called Chinese Presidents have had Xi is taking even more making himself into a more absolute dictator actively comparing himself with Mao and getting all these Communist Party thugs he has assembled to agree with him. And the fact Xi does not intend to step down after 10 years like all previous Chinese strongmen except Mao himself leader for life while he brutalized hundreds of millions of Chinese men, women children. Xi too wants to go on and on.
It is the second part of the Times summary that make Xi far more chilling when Xi stating his country had developed its economy without imitating Western values and “It offers a new option for other countries and nations who want to speed up their development while preserving their independence.”
Really Xi? REALLY?
Let me interpret Xi’s remarks in English. What he is holding out as the Chinese “model” to the rest of the world, especially developing countries, is that any country just as China has done can have an outstanding economy while being controlled by dictators who allow no freedoms of expression to its citizens, and where their every action is under constant surveillance, where any criticism of the state will be harshly punished and where there are NO elections and never will be.
This is what Xi is preaching to the world.
In China under Xi’s control the state is becoming ever more repressive using the most advanced technologies to spy on and monitor everything every Chinese citizen from birth to death does and track their every move with face recognition technology and every other hardware and software tool.
Xi takes tens of thousands of Chinese citizens every year and imprisons them or murders them without any legitimate courts at all whatsoever for doing nothing more than complain about rampant abuses by Communist Party thugs or seeking redress for personal wrongs against them.
The Late Great Liu Xiaobo who this entire series is dedicated was put in prison for life and then effectively murdered by having adequate medical treatment withheld from him and kept under arrest in a hospital with terminal cancer all for the CRIME of winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
So called President Xi Jinping is a First Class Punk who should be in jail. Instead he becomes ever more powerful and repressive and is now exporting his system of repression around the world seeking a world that looks like China with a strong economy and NO democratic institutions and total repression of citizens where a small elite rule over everything and take whatever and as much as they like for themselves from the economy.
Xi has taken a country already run like a prison camp and has molded it even more into an outdated concept of a nation from the Dark Ages while being crafty enough to produce a booming economy that rivals the U.S. Producing a citizenry who accepts this backward repressive regime in exchange for limited economic prosperity, a rich elite and ever present FEAR of being arrested and left rotting in prison if they complain about anything.
Yes, now lets turn to the IDIOT face of this two sided monster that spans the Globe the two most powerful nations on Earth. The other half – our own President Donald Trump – the moronic compliment to Xi’s evil brilliance.
Never ever has there ever been a worse embarrassment to the U.S. Presidency than ridiculous Donald Trump TV stuntman who is proof anyone can become a billionaire all you need do is be sleazy enough and a first class shameless self promoter who has no integrity. And you can be all that and be President too if you are lucky enough to run against Hillary Clinton.
China’s Xi wants to destroy America by undermining democratic institutions and surrounding America with look-alike repressive Chinese style regimes that abuse their citizens and rule by fear.
Donald Trump has a much simpler plan to destroy America …..
By being President of the United States!
Both of them are succeeding in their very different ways.
And that is why they are the two most DANGEROUS men on Earth.
Distorting reality and making us all their victims.
