Obama Asia TripObama Pivots to Asia –Image: Stars and Stripes

(Taiwan News) As President Obama departs for Asia to reassure allies of the U.S. commitment in the region, Taiwan (again) is notably absent on Obama’s agenda.

While Obama can’t seem to find the time to visit Taiwan, what trip would be complete if he didn’t visit a giant Mosque in Malaysia?

According to the USA Today Obama’s trip to Malaysia will be largely symbolic than substantive, given that its on the CIA’s ‘Watch List’ for the sexual exploitation of Women and Children that some govt officials are reportedly complicit in.

(Washington Post) President Obama has led a foreign and domestic policy agenda based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality–this is evident in Obama’s “miscalculations” in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, Taiwan, China, Russia, Ukraine…

While foreign policy crisis’s continue erupting on Obama’s Watch, today the Obama Administration forges ahead with its Progressive, domestic green agenda of a narrow, isolationist view of their responsibilities, announcing new stricter EPA regulations, further weakening an already overly regulated, anemic, struggling U.S. economy, which further emboldens our adversaries throughout the world.

(Taipei Times) Chinese Writer & Internet Journalist Lu Haitao asked the United States for political asylum while in Taiwan and was granted his request–the U.S. State Dept  has however refused to confirm or deny the asylum request except to say that Lu Haitao and his wife have arrived into the United States and are residing in Washington, DC

Lu Haitao, formally a journalist with the Oriental Morning Post, was the fifth reporter in one month to have been beaten-up in Shanghai, suffering serious injuries.

Chinese dissident Hu Jia credits the United States offering a great deal of help in assisting Lu Haitao and his wife–asked if KMT President Ma Ying-jeou government in Taiwan was helpful, Hu would only say, “It went beyond not helping.”

 (NetEase–Chinese) Chiang Kai-shek historic 1935 residence in Chongqing is undergoing some renovations being destroyed–China regime claimed that the structure complete disrepair warranted the complete “protective demolition” but promises that the home will be painstakingly rebuilt brick-by-brick using materials from the original structure.

Riiiight…

Many worry about the credibility of the China regime statement (they lie) a reporter visiting the renovation site noted that the premises completely lacked any signage noting the structure protective status–there were many workers observed hauling away bricks and pieces of wood.
