On the  30 December, 2014 I wrote here about other crosses in Wenzhou together with a cross at a convalescent home in Hangzhou Zhejiang Province were ordered removed by China regime Marxist thugs.

  • Flashback: Remember in February when (either naive or just plain self-delusional) Obama claimed “We should welcome China’s peaceful rise partly from just an ethical perspective.”

Its so really very sad that the Obama Administration is so hostile when it comes to religious persecution of Christians around the world and human rights violations in China.

PRC Detained LawyersChina Regime Mass Suppression of Lawyers Reveals True Nature
of Dictator Xi Jiping ‘Rule By Law’ –HRIC

(NY Times) More than 200 Chinese lawyers and associates have been detained by authorities, some being paraded on television (forced) to make humiliating confessions or portrayed as ‘rabble-rousing thugs’ — A blast of commentaries in China state media have accused them of subversion and swindlers.

In what lawyers are calling the most withering political assault on their profession in decades, the China regime is mounting a broad crackdown on ‘Human Rights Lawyers’ alleging they have exploited contentious cases to enrich themselves and attack the Chinese Communist Party.

The beleaguered lawyers say the China government real goal is to discredit and dismantle the “rights defense” movement, a small but audacious group of people who have used the law and public pressure to defend clients in a system stacked against them.

On Wednesday, Hong Kong Free Press reported that detained lawyers are at risk of torture by the China regime. Teng Biao, a human rights lawyer and visiting scholar at Harvard and New York Universities said that he had been “abducted, locked up and tortured,” by security forces before.

In an Op-Ed published in the ‘Washington Post’ Teng said, ‘This is the biggest crackdown on lawyers in China since the legal system was reestablished in 1980 after the cultural revolution.

It is also just part of the purge that President Xi Jinping has carried out against civil society since he came to power in late 2012. Those hit by this comprehensive suppression have included political dissidents, nongovernmental organizations, government petitioners, underground Churches, Internet users, news organizations and universities.

More than 1,500 (human) rights defenders have been arrested or thrown in jail including well known lawyers Xu Zhiyong, Pu Zhiqiang and Tang Jingling,” who was arrested at his Guangzhou home in 2014 ahead of the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen protests.

China regime hasn’t been a disappointment to Democrats.

Obama on Islamic Fascist Iran: This Deal is Not Contingent on Iran Changing Its Behavior

Obama Iran(WFB) Hoax n’ Chains Obama, lashed out at his critics including Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who have argued that his ‘Nuke Deal’ with Islamic Fascist Iran, does little to reign in the rouge regime’s ability to construct a bomb during his rambling press conference today.

Asked to respond to those who have criticized the Obama/Iran Nuke Deal as dangerous for the United States, Israel and the world, Obama defended the agreement and said: “I’m not concerned what others say about it.”

Obama conceded that he does not expect the agreement to help moderate Iran or dampen its support for terrorism across the world.

“This deal is not contingent on Iran changing its behavior,” Obama said, rationalizing that he hopes that it may lead to further dialogue with Iran on a range of regional issues, including the wars in Yemen and Syria.

Huh???

We’re we not told by Obama less than a year ago how Yemen’s war on terror was a success story which the American taxpayers spent wasted some $800 Million on?

Wrong on Yemen, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, ISIS (which Obama called a JV Team) China regime which Obama in February claimed that “we should welcome China’s peaceful rise” etc…What foreign policy decision can Obama point to and call a success? 

“It’s fine to celebrate success but its more important to heed the lessons of failure.” –Bill Gates

Its unfortunate that Obama hasn’t yet learned this invaluable lesson. One can only hope that Congress doesn’t make the same error in judgment.

Today Christians Celebrate the Feast of St. Gregory Grassi & Companions, Martyrs for Jesus Christ

St Gregory Grassi & Companions

(Franciscan Media) Born in Italy in 1833 Ordained a Priest in 1856 Fr. Gregory Grassi was sent to China five years later–Fr. Gregory Grassi was subsequently Ordained a Bishop of North Shanxi during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911)

Christian missionaries have often been caught in the crossfire of wars against their own nations–when the governments of Britain, Germany, Russia and France, forced substantial territory concessions from China in 1898 anti-foreign sentiment grew very strong among people in China.

Together with 14 other European Missionaries and 14 Religious in China, Bishop Gregory Grassi was martyred for their Faith in Jesus Christ during the bloody ‘Boxer Rebellion’ in 1900

Twenty six of these Martyrs were arrested upon orders Yuxian Governor of Shanxi and hacked to death: Five of them were Friars Minor;  Seven were ‘Franciscan Missionaries of Mary’ the first martyrs of their congregations; Seven were Chinese Seminarians together with Secular Franciscans; Four Martyrs were Chinese Laymen and the rest were Chinese Laymen which simply were employed by the ‘Franciscans’ and caught in the roundup of the others– Three Italian were Martyred the same week of the twenty-six in Hunan in South-Central China.

All of these Martyrs for Jesus Christ were Beatified by Pope Pius XII in 1946 and Canonized by Pope Saint John Paul II in 2000

(RFA) Hundreds of parents of children who died in collapsed school buildings in the massive 8.0 Sichuan Earthquake, gathered to lay wreaths today on the 7th anniversary of the disaster which killed more than 80,000 people many of them children.

  • On the 05 Feb 2010 I archived here links to many of my articles subsequent to the devastating Sichuan Quake.

Around 200 parents gathered today at the former site of Juyuan High School in Sichuan Province Duijiangyan City to pay their respects.

“We are still at the scene and there are quite a lot of people here today…We are burning paper money (for the souls of the dead) and setting off firecrackers (to ward of evil spirits) We are using small white flowers as a mourning tribute for our children and we are getting ready to play some funeral music for the kids,” Zhou Xingrong said.

Family members and friends said that the scene was more peaceful today than in previous years, when Police clashed with grieving parents, dragging them away from similar sites.

“Today more than 200 people have gathered at the old site of the Juyuan High School to lay wreaths and we let off a few firecrackers,” Wu Xianjie, one of the million made homeless in the earthquake said.
