Progress To Drain Swollen Tangjiashan Lake

Seen here an aerial view shows the partially submerged Yuli Town in Sichuan Province in this photo taken yesterday and distributed by the Xinhua News Agency.

A swollen "Quake Lake" in one of the worst hit areas has topped China's agenda of relief work. The Tangjiashan Quake Lake formed by landslides, is seen here on Monday, authorities rushed on Tuesday to evacuate people in the path of potential flood waters building up.

The efforts are aimed at getting all 1.3 Million people on the move within 4 hours should Quake Lake banks fully open. Hundred of workers using 40 large pieces of earth moving equipment have been working around the clock attempting to construct a diversion channel.

The Tangjiashan Lake is some 3.2 kilometers away from the seat of Beichuan County, the area worst hit by the Sichuan Earthquake on the May 12 The lake hold some 130 million cubic meters of water, it's water level was 727.02 meters on Tuesday up 1.82 meters from Monday however the water levels are slowing.

At least 50,000 cubic meters of debris have been removed. 158,000 people from 169 communities have been relocated so far should the Quake Lake breaks it's banks. The diversion channel is not expected to be completed until June 05

Jewish Community Defends John Hagee

Jewish allies of Pastor John Hagee have rallied to defend him despite the abrupt repudiation of his endorsement by Senator John McCain.

Seen here Rabbi Scheinberg, of Congregation Rodfei Shalom Synagogue with Pastor John Hagee speaking during a news conference on May 23 in San Antonio, Texas saying "...John Hagees's words were twisted and used to attack him...Hagee interpreted a biblical verse in a way not very different from several legitimate Jewish authorities."

Los Angeles Syndicated Radio talk show host Dennis Prager said this week that "John Hagee is one of the most pro-Jewish Christians alive...To accuse such a man of anything anti-Jewish renders both truth and anti-Semitism meaningless..."

More here from the Washington Times

Liberal's and some other irrelevant pro-Islamic apologists such as the Rev. Jim Sutter last week has once again mischaracterized John Hagge's comments to reflect their own absurd ideological persuasions.

Last month I wrote here that "In the egotistical world of embellisher Jim Sutter, craving attention is his top priority..." In March I wrote at that "Some peoples lives are so fraught with nothingness that to occupy themselves and to make believe their own importance and self worth, they manufacture allegations that have no basis in fact..."

Senator Joe Liberman, I-CT has announced that he will be addressing a July conference "Christian's United for Israel" hosted by John Hagee in Washington, DC saying that Hagee's organization is "a vital force in supporting the war against terrorism and defending our ally, Israel."

When MSNBC Olbermann speaks America turns on FOX News

Keith Olbermann Compares Right Wingers To Jihadists that Michelle (Malkin) and the "lunatic fringe" are "fascists"---Olbermann and his ilk like throwing that word around a lot. Olbermann Accuses 'Fascist' Bush of Engaging in Terrorism

Is Olbermann on the verge of another professional melt down? During West Virgina's Primary Coverage, Olbermann began pounding the table when White House Reporter David Gregory didn't wrap up his segment quickly enough to satisfy him.

Scott McClellan has agreed to give his first cable television interview to MSNBC Olbermann tomorrow night.

MSNBC continues to get trounced in the ratings behind FOX News which remains on top for the 77th month. The O'Reilly Factor, remained # 1 in cable news for the 90th consecutive month.

Scott McCellan Superfluous Fables

Disgruntled former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan who served from May 2003-April 2006 writes in his memoir due out next week that he was pushed out to leave earlier than he had wanted. McClellan says that President Bush "veered terribly off course" and was not "open and forthright on Iraq" likewise criticizing the White House Press Corps as "complicit enablers" for focusing on covering the march to war.

Scott McClellan pictured here along with his wife, their daughters and his Mother, Texas Independent Gubernatorial Candidate Carole Keeton Strayhorn making a concession speech in November, 2006

Angry and bitter that George Bush wouldn't support his Mother's candidacy for Texas Governor in 2006 when she left the Republican Party to run as an Independent against GOP Incumbent Governor Rick Perry, McCellan took to the lecture circuit and began writing his memoir.

The White House responded to Scott McCellan's book calling it "self serving sour grapes" as he panders the talk show circuit attempting to sell his book.

Just last year McCellan said publicly that he didn't believe that George Bush lied to him about the leak of CIA Operative Valerie Plume's identity, though he now states that the White House permitted him to repeat a lie.

McCellan now calls Vice President Dick Cheney "the Magic Man" who "always seemed to get his way...could not contain his deep seated certitude, even arrogance..."

Attempting to explain his sudden change from defender to critic of the Bush Administration, McCellan claims to be learning from his personal mistakes in order to become a better person, being true to his Christian faith.

White House Press Secretary Dana Perino described George Bush as "surprised" by McCellan's book but that the President wouldn't have anything to say for the "...President has more pressing matters then to spend time commenting on books by former staffers."

Fran Townsend, former Security Advisor of the White House Counter-Terrorism Office and now a CNN Commentator said of McCellan's book, "this now strikes me as self-serving, disingenuous and unprofessional."

Youngest Olympic Torch Bearer Carries Flame

Tan Haimei, became the youngest Olympic Torchbearer yesterday. After being abandoned by her Mother six months after her birth, her father lost his left arm during a work accident, leaving Tan to live with her Grandparents.

In 2006 Tan won national fame as one of the "Persons Who Move Us The Most" together with Yang Liwei and NBA All-Star Yao Ming.

When Tan started a new school, she discovered that many of her classmates had come from families whose parents left them with elders. Tan said she " fact shared the lonliness and often the helplessness" of other children without parents.

Tan soon started 'Team for Left Behind Children' saying, "...if we get together to help each other we won't be lonely anymore" the project aimed to bring left behind children together for mutual assistance and community volunteer efforts.

Persistence has paid off, Tan's 'Team for Left Behind Children' has grown from her own class, to the entire school, then across the city and province to the entire country.

Asian Games 100 Meters Hurdles Champion Liu Jing and 19 other Olympic athletes were in Sichuan Province when the devastating Earthquake struck, all survived unharmed. Liu a native of Sichuan Province, had been training in the area when the Earthquake struck. Some of the athletes did lose family members in the disaster.

Sporting infrastructure was destroyed during the 7.9 magnitude earthquake, a newly built gymnasium, a swimming pool and sports stadium were lost during the quake.

In fact it was the Soviet Troops that Liberated Auschwitz so unless Barry's non-Uncle was serving in the Red Army in January 1945 it didn't happen.

We later learn his Great Uncle was among the American Troops that liberated Buchenwald and became a victim himself, spending months an isolated recluse.

Now we'd give our love to everyone around us and to every life and we fuse such love into our work and become more committed to our respective work."

"What would you do knowing you have one day or less left in this world?

Democrat's Need To Learn A Lesson From Our Chinese Friends

Democratic Presidential Candidates Obama & Clinton who fear Free Trade, Competition & Innovation are continuing to cry for protectionism and tax increases as a way to protect American Jobs to spur economic growth and development?

British Foreign Secretary David Millbrand has said that Britain is concerned by the trade protectionist stance taken by Democratic Candidates, Financial Times reported Monday saying, "...American Internationalism has been a feature of all periods of global progress...It's absolutely clear that the world needs an America thats engaged with the global trading system in a very fundamental, a very committed way. The problem is not too much trade, the problem is too little trade..."

"In the post World War II era, the United States was the champion of global trade, overseeing the creation of much of the infrastructure, since the normalization of U.S. relations with China in 1979, Washington & Beijing have cultivated cooperative policies...In 2007, U.S. imports from China amounted to $322 Billion Dollars about $10 Billion more than from Canada...U.S. exports to China have grown rapidly to $65 Billion Dollars...said Dan Steinbock, Research Director at the International Business at the India, China and America Institute.

Continued global economic growth and the robust demand for the global markets have contributed to China's increasing foreign trade. "China will continuously endeavor to improve its trade pattern...said Yushi Li, Vice President of Chinese Academy of International Trade & Economic Cooperation.

As China strives to expand its market and continues to realize strong economic growth, Democrat's should be learning a lesson from our friends in China, that competition, free trade and tax cuts spurs economic growth, development and prosperity.

Tired old protectionism policies would isolate the U.S. from the world market place, resulting in reduced economic growth and job losses.

CNN Jack Cafferty Mouth Speaking Evil

Last month I wrote here that CNN Jack Cafferty, called Chinese people "A bunch of Goons and Thugs."

CNN & Cafferty still continue not to show any regrets for it's disrespectful words.

While growing up we all have heard, "Sticks and Stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me."

June Hunt writes at "Wrong, wrong, wrong. We all know that words can break our hearts...words can kill a relationship. Words can murder our motivation and inspiration..."

A person's mouth speaks volumes of their character.

"A good person produces good from the good treasure of their heart and an evil person produces evil from evil treasure because the mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart." Luke 6:45

Helping the survivors of the Sichuan Earthquake

Giving a Red Envelope is tradition in the Chinese community and may have originated during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) when elderly people would bind stacks of coins with red yarn, these were known as Yasuiqian---literally meaning "pressed money" and were believed to extend hope for longevity by safeguarding the older generations from illness and death.

Giving Hongbao today is tradition during Spring Festival and is a must for important family social events in the Chinese community. Red Envelopes are given in times of tragedy and the only time that the sum given should begin with an odd number.
