What about the DNA of the people in Tibet and Xinjiang?

The very surviving existence of the Tibetan and Uighur IDENTITIES today shows that there has not been any extermination campaigns against China's minority peoples in her five thousand years of history.   

Were there pitch battles between them? Of course there were.

Were there religious warfare or extermination campaigns? No, not a single one.

What about you?  You in the U.S. physically EXTERMINATED nearly all of them (estimated 50 million victims butchered or infected on purpose with smallpox), so much so that in fertile lands of the continental U.S. there are very few natives left and not even one piece of land reserved for them in California -- entire Native American villages were wiped out after gold was discovered there in 1849.

In contrast, even when China was very weak in the late Qing years no Uighurs or Tibetans ever tried to break loose like the fourteen states (other than Mother Russia) broke free of the former Soviet Union in 1991.  

In China's case, only when Western meddlers tried to incite riots did some of them start to engage in terrorist activities.

Have you ever been to Tibet and Xinjiang and have long talks with the local people there?   I have.

Their self-identities are intact -- they think of themselves as Chinese and as one of 56 national ethnicities of China all enjoying equal rights with the majority Hans and sharing common prosperity.  That is the truth.

In fact, the Tibetans are treated better than the Hans in terms of social benefits, housing and education.  

All of China's minority peoples are taught their native languages -- where there was no written languages and only oral traditions survived, phonetic languages were invented for them.  No one was ever forced to study only Mandarin as the sole language.  The study of their own languages is always prioritized.

That means equality and mutual respect.  That's why you can't incite them towards true separatism.

That's so unlike your policy of seizing Native American children from their homes and forcing them to study in "English boarding schools" in an effort to culturally assimilate them.  When that failed, the majority of them were slaughtered.

There's much about your own history that you don't seem to know. To this very day President Andrew Jackson's picture is still on your $20 bills.

You know what Jackson did?  When gold was discovered in Georgia  in the late 1820s -- early 1830s he forcibly relocated the Cherokees and other tribes from Georgia to the barren lands of Oklahoma, trekking through the lower stretches of the Appalachian Mountains, enduring untold hardships while still being raped, tortured and decimated along the way.  Jackson used the Georgian Supreme Court to make everything look legal -- that's the hypocrisy of your system.

That horrific betrayal is referred to as the Trail of Tears, and you guys are still commemorating these genocidal atrocities by immortalizing the very butcher on your $20 bills.

So what does that say about your barbaric culture and your prevailing mindset?

Before you try to engage me in any conversation on this topic, please make sure you study your own history in detail.

So babbling day-in and day-out about Tibet and Xinjiang merely accentuates your own ignorance -- people aren't stupid and they have eyes and ears and know what's going on.

We can all see that in the United States there is now a president who thinks and acts as if he is above the law.

He is obviously trying to leave inculpatory evidence for future historians that a political novice like him had dared to tear up almost all the international agreements his predecessors had painstakingly put together to sustain global U.S. hegemony, and no Republicans have so far raised any serious challenges to his impulsive decisions.  

You should all understand that what he has done so far is only for testing the waters.

If he is re-elected for a second term, that's when he will enter the Dennis-the-Menace phase of his MAGA delirium-- instead of shredding paper agreements as he is doing during his first term, he will then resort to the use of military force in dealing with China for the simple reason that he will believe by then that the American people have given him the mandate to do the unimaginable thing to thwart China's rise.

He will do so not because of any prodigious military abilities on his part, but precisely because he is totally ignorant of matters like nuclear winters.  

He has just removed all restrictions on the NRA to sell offensive weapons to U.S. civilians in the name of protecting their constitutional self-defense rights despite outcries from gunshot victims, which affords ample evidence that he won't hesitate to use nuclear weapons if given the chance.

You should also understand that in the 243 years since July 4, 1776, only during 16 of those years was the U.S. not engaged in a war with a real or imagined foe.  Almost every U.S. president has had a war linked to his name during his tenure in the Oval Office except perhaps in the case of Obama.  

So chances are you can bet your tepee Trump is not going to be the courteous exception.

And in view of recently-augmented U.S. military involvement in Taiwan, the island is likely to be the site of the next Sino-U.S. military conflict, not the South China Sea.

Currently China is making an all-out effort to eliminate poverty to set an example for both the developed and undeveloped countries as to what can be done in a short period of time if they sincerely put their minds to it.

China's poverty-elimination campaign, whose completion is scheduled for the end of 2020, will become a watershed event reorienting and pivoting the nation's main thrust towards territorial re-unification.

So it stands to reason that a military confrontation is not a total impossibility should President Trump be re-elected in 2020.

The scandal has just exploded just as we had predicted.

Several Chinese are in the first batch of 50 people who bribed their way into getting their kids into elite U.S. institutions just so that they can brag about it in the future -- "Oh my son got into Harvard" -- he scored amongst the top in the SAT he took while he was a high school student at Wo Wo Wo University in Shangdong."

That's probably one of the reasons the Harvard president was invited to visit Beijing last month.

I am sure our leaders didn't just invite him over to talk about the weather or cultural exchange only.

There must have been urgent matters they wanted to discuss with him about in order to stamp out official corruption in this area -- like officials using illegitimate means to get their high-schooler into his school etc. and a possible list of such corrupt cases.  

When you use a false name to go to such a school your transcripts would have to be "re-invented" or "doctored" officially at the level of the home country.

Nobody should be a fan of doing that.

I am sure our leaders sincerely want to stamp out such corrupt practices at least in an official capacity.

And the Harvard man was in Beijing right at the time after the first scandal broke out.  You can check on the dates.

That the "contribution" made to the schools was mediated by a Chinese associate working for Morgan Stanley shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone.

It is always easier to infiltrate the body of an opponent from the inside.  Ethnic Chinese students who graduate from elite schools get positions in institutions like Morgan Stanley and some of them earn their commissions mostly by introducing rich Mainland Chinese clients to "deals," and those are the ones responsible most easily used by enemy forces to infiltrate China because of their 'connections.'

Chinese officials who visit the States need to be very careful that they don't fall into "beauty traps" -- a woman is arranged for him, pictures are taken and he becomes their spy from that very moment.

In the instant case involving bribes to get into elite schools, it all started as a normal part of doing business, and naturally the conversation would turn to more private matters.

"Can you find me a way to get my daughter into Yale, Caltech, Stanford or Harvard," the parent investor would ask.

"I'll see what I can do to help you," the Morgan Stanley associate would respond.

Then back in Wall Street he/she would ask around and find someone like Singer who has "connections."

It used to be that contributions are made to schools directly to give their kids a better chance to get into such schools.  But your kid has to be excellent students themselves and not just a B student from Ah So So University, and do very well on the SAT test.

Those would be direct and open contributions that do not ensure success in the application -- it only adds to the odds of one being accepted if two candidates are equally qualified and the contributing winner's parent is an alumnus of the school.  

That's how kids from U.S. presidential families all graduate from Yale, Caltech, Harvard, Stanford, MIT -- parental ties gave them a definite edge.

I think the Chinese family of concern here was cheated because they were told by the Morgan Stanley associate that Singer had connections but they had to make a contribution to the school, and that's why they paid up in April after the kid was accepted in March.

The parents apparently thought it was "routine" policy of the schools, or else the dad wouldn't have come out openly to face the media to explain that his company had nothing to do with the foul play for fear that the same thing would happen to his company's stocks as had happened to Jing Dong's CEO in the aftermath of the man's sex scandal at the University of Minnesota.

If The Chinese family had thought it was bribe money they wouldn't have paid up AFTER the kid was accepted.

Why?

Have you ever heard of someone doing something for you BEFORE the bribe is paid?

So I think the Chinese parent -- at least the father -- was entirely in the dark as to what was going on.

They must have thought it was a legitimate contribution to the school mediated by Singer the middle man for the school.  

If they thought it was a bribe then they would not have to fulfill their end of the bargain AFTER the kid had already been given an offer by the school in March.

They really could have thought it was a legitimate contribution to the school, and not to Singer personally.

The reason why only U.S.- and not PRC-originated Chinese parents are targeted currently for prosecution in the first batch of 50 cases could be for political reasons.  They might yet call in some in the next batch of 50.  Who knows?  

They might be targeting the Chinese parents for future use, and so are keeping the secrets dormant for the time being.

Ask yourself why not even one Chinese official has been exposed in the scandal so far?

Can you imagine how many Chinese parents would have been contacted if they really want to make a big fuss?  

There is a reason for the silence treatment.  They are "far-sighted."  What you are seeing is just the tip of the iceberg.

Some Chinese parents -- including officials -- want their Ah So So kids to enter elite schools and are therefore subject to political blackmail -- see my OMEN thread at TTCD to find out why I said what I said.
