America's hidden establishment had other plans for China

To The Daily Sun,

General George C. Marshall became a key figure in the communist takeover of China. "The Tragedy of George Marshall" by Walter Trohan (1951) gives a picture of who he was and his rapid rise in rank. He wrote: ".. his way to a general's star appeared blocked forever when the inspector general reported that under one year of Marshal's command the Eighth Regiment had dropped from one of the best regiments in the army to one of the worse. MacArthur regretfully informed Pershing that the report made promotion impossible."

Six years after being relieved of command of a regiment by Douglas MacArthur in 1933, he was placed by Franklin Roosevelt in charge of the entire army.

In 1935, U.S. Ambassador William Bullitt wrote to Secretary of State Cordell Hull: " ... The Soviet Union would certainly attempt to avoid becoming an ally until Japan had been thoroughly defeated and would then merely use the opportunity to acquire Manchuria and Sovietize China".

Stalin wanted Manchuria. Professor Anthony Kubek at the University of Dallas, wrote in How the Far East Was Lost: ".. As a matter of fact, not one word of protest was sent by the Department of State to the Soviet Union, despite her absorption of Sinkiang and outer Mongolia, while at the same time Japan was censured for stationing troops in China."

General Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist government attempted to unite China. Soviet agents were deported. In 1928 the Council on Foreign Relations published in their foreign relations an attack against Chiang Kai-shek. From that point the American establishment joined forces with the Soviets against the Nationalist Leader.

Roosevelt sends 600 shiploads of supplies to Stalin's Far Eastern Army. Three-thousand tanks, 5,000 planes with food, ammunition and fuel to supply 1,250,000 man army. Chiang Kai-shek received half that as our ally for four years. Roosevelt made other concessions with the shrewd communist. Allowing them control of Manchurian seaports and a railroad. Ceding control of a nations sovereignty without congressional approval.

General Stilwell did not like Chiang Kai-shek. He admired the communist commander Chu Teh and the forces he commanded. His Burma campaign called for Nationalist forces to fight the Japanese. Chiang refused. Stilwell complained to FDR, asking for complete command. Chiang said he would go it alone against the Japanese as he had for four years before Pearl Harbor. General Albert C. Wedemeyer relieved Stilwell of command.

Chiang later wrote" Stilwell was in conspiracy with the Communists to overthrow the government". General Patrick J. Hurley wrote: "the record of General Stilwell in China is irrevocably coupled in history with the conspiracy to overthrow the Nationalist government of China, and set up in its place a Communist regime-and all this movement was part of, and cannot be separated from, the Communist cell or apparatus that existed at the time in the government in Washington."

Soviet agent Harry Dexter White , assistant secretary of Treasury withheld a loan approved by FDR to Chiang Kai-shek. In 1959, the assistant secretary of state spoke to the National Press Club: "we stood by and saw China drift into a state of complete economic collapse. The currency was worthless in China; we withheld our funds at the only time, in my opinion, we had a chance to save the situation. To do what? To force the Communist in."

In November 1946 Chiang Kai-shek called for a convention of National parties that represented all of China. Over 2,000 delegates assembled where they adopted a national constitution. The Communists did not attend.

Five Star Admiral William Leahy wrote: "I was present when Marshall was going to China. He said he was gong to tell Chiang that he had to get on with the Communists or without help from us. He said the same thing when he got back." And when told Mao Tse-tung and his followers were communists, Marshall remarked, "Don't be ridiculous. These fellows are just old-fashioned agrarian reformers." This lie never seems to change. Korea, Cuba,Vietnam, Pol Pot.

Marshall declared a truce once he arrived in China. The timing was superb.70,000 Communist troops were surrounded by 200,000 Nationalists. One hundred thousand Communist forces were trapped by government forces near Canton. The communist marched out of the trap. By January 1947 the Soviets had been supplying the Communists with weapons. Most were weapons and supplies we had given them. Marshall boasted how he had disarmed the Nationalists by imposing an embargo on weapons with a stroke of the pen."

U.S. Ambassador William Bullitt testified to Congress in March 1948: "General Marshall in August, 1946, by unilateral action, broke the promise of the American government to the Chinese government and suspended all deliveries of planes. As a means of pressure to compel Chiang Kai-shek to take Communists into the Chinese government. General Marshall stopped all fulfillment of this program and dishonored the pledge of the United States."
President Truman rewarded Marshall by appointing him Secretary of State.

Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations published pamphlets through the Institute of Pacific Relations to be distributed to schools and the military. Furthering the propaganda that the Communists were agrarian reformers. The Saturday Evening Post praised Mao. The Senate Internal Security Subcommittee found 54 persons connected with the Communist world conspiracy had infiltrated the institute. "Amererasia", published by IPR in 1945, listed the whereabouts of the Chinese Nationalist Army.

The University of Peking became a Communist objective. Soviet psychological warfare took over the university newspapers. Nineteen out of 20 were controlled by the very few Communists who had infiltrated the school.

Two forces fought in China. One for her freedom and one to enslave her. One led by a Christian, the other an atheist. Millions perished and millions more suffered because the hidden establishment had other plans and George C. Marshal, the State Department, Josesph W. Stilwell and Soviet agents saw that it was carried out. Do we see a pattern here?

Real question: will CO2 emissions cause dangerous climate change?

To The Daily Sun,

In his editorial, "Not all ideas are created equal," E. Scott Cracraft states that the idea "that there is no human-caused climate change" is "in no way equal to the scientifically-proven ideas that climate change is real." Indeed, all competent climate scientists know that humans contribute to climate change through land-use change (e.g., urbanization), pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

But that is not the real issue. Instead, the key question is, "do the relevant scientists agree that our greenhouse gas emissions will cause dangerous climate change?" Only if it will be dangerous should this be a public policy concern. No one knows the answer to this question since such a poll has never been conducted.

Meanwhile, aid agencies are unable to adequately support vulnerable people being effected by climate change today. Because of overconfidence of environmental activists about our ability to predict and even control future climate, 94 percent of the more than $1 billion/day spent worldwide on climate finance is dedicated to mitigation, trying to affect events that may, or may not, someday happen.

One reason for this imbalance is that mitigation projects are far more profitable for large corporations than are the smaller scale boots-on-the-ground strategies needed to help populations adapt.

We may never properly understand the causes of climate change or its future trajectory, but we do know that people need help now.
