Most of the emails in this post are related to China growing economically and militarily. One email in particular discusses China buying up American assets from large corporations to rural community factories that would welcome Trojan Chinese investment that provides jobs in rural communities.

Meet Your New Boss: Buying Large Employers Will Enable China To Dominate 1000s Of U.S. Communities
Are you ready for a future where China will employ millions of American workers and dominate thousands of small communities all over the United States? Such a future would be unimaginable to many Americans, but the truth is that it is already starting to happen. Chinese acquisition of U.S. businesses set a new all-time record last year, and it is on pace to absolutely shatter that record this year. Meanwhile, China is voraciously gobbling up real estate and is establishing economic beachheads all over America. If China continues to build economic power inside the United States, it will eventually become the dominant economic force in thousands of small communities all over the nation. Just think about what the Smithfield Foods acquisition alone will mean. Smithfield Foods is the largest pork producer and processor in the world. It has facilities in 26 U.S. states and it employs tens of thousands of Americans. It directly owns 460 farms and has contracts with approximately 2,100 others. But now a Chinese company has bought it for $4.7 billion, and that means that the Chinese will now be the most important employer in dozens of rural communities all over America. If you don't think that this is important, you haven't been paying much attention to what has been going on in the world. Thanks in part to our massively bloated trade deficit with China, the Chinese have trillions of dollars to spend. They are only just starting to exercise their economic muscles.
But China is not just relying on acquisitions to expand its economic power. The truth is that "economic beachheads" are being established all over America. For example, Golden Dragon Precise Copper Tube Group, Inc. recently broke ground on a $100 million plant in Thomasville, Alabama. I am sure that many of the residents of Thomasville, Alabama will be glad to have jobs, but it will also become yet another community that will now be heavily dependent on communist China.
And guess where else Chinese companies are putting down roots?
Yes, the poster child for the deindustrialization of America is being invaded by the Chinese. …
China seems particularly interested in acquiring energy resources in the United States. For example, did you know that China is actually mining for coal in the mountains of Tennessee?
But when it comes to our energy resources, China has been most interested in our oil and natural gas. It is a complete and total mystery why the federal government would allow China to buy up our precious domestic sources of energy, but it is happening. …
And pretty soon China may want to build entire cities in the United States just like they have been doing in other countries. …
… For example, as I have written about previously, a Chinese company known as "Sino-Michigan Properties LLC" has purchased 200 acres of land near the little town of Milan, Michigan. Their stated goal is to construct a "China City" that has artificial lakes, a Chinese cultural center and hundreds of housing units for Chinese citizens.
… (R))ead the following list of facts which comes from one of my previous articles entitled "40 Ways That China Is Beating America"...
So what can we do about all of this?
Unfortunately, not a whole lot. Both major political parties seem to be fully convinced that merging our economy with the economy of communist China is a great idea. …
For now, I will just leave you with one piece of advice...
Learn to speak Chinese. You might need it someday. – READ ENTIRETY
504 Documented Examples of Obama's Lies, Lawbreaking, Corruption, Cronyism, Etc.
… Obama’s promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.
Some of the things on this list are major events that should scare the daylights out of any true liberal who cares about civil liberties.
Other things on this list are medium things that some Obama supporters may dislike, but would be willing to overlook in light of the things that Obama has done which they like.
And some of the things on this list may seem trivial, but I still think they are an interesting reflection of the kinds of policies that Obama supports.

Why the US is Spying on its citizens...
Sent: 1/17/2014 9:36 AM
Why is the US is Spying on its citizens ….. It’s to prepare for the fundamental transformation of a New World Trade Currency and see who will resist to this change at cost to their lives!!!!!
The Reason why the US Government is preparing the nation’s citizens with surveillance of those that may want to resist an inflation event in their lives is due to a De-Americanizing of cheaper world supplies access. The USA has enjoyed the formation of the WTO Trade policies that traded in Dollar denominations giving a competitive price advantage to its domestically produced cost structure for decades. This competitive price advantage has reached a saturation point with regard to how this abundance is now effecting other nations’ cost of Living and access to these supplies. President Obama said we were going to redistribute wealth from the USA to the other parts of the world and this is what was meant, see this:
And this strategy is to try and avoid an isolating trade war world conflict. This will result in the Cost to US Citizens for their daily needs to inflate. And how fast this increase happens will be determined by how fast the transition of a new trade currency evolves.
These links show how this is evolving:
Stark warning: Admiral concedes U.S. losing dominance to China
The Obama administration’s ballyhooed military “pivot” to Asia is running into some frank talk from the top U.S. commander in the Pacific.
Three years after the Pentagon said it was de-emphasizing Europe in favor of the Asia-Pacific region, Navy Adm. Samuel J. Locklear III said this week that U.S. dominance has weakened in the shadow of a more aggressive China.
“China is going to rise, we all know that,” Adm. Locklear said, as reported by Defense News, which included several quotes from his speech at the annual Surface Navy Association meeting.
“[But] how are they behaving? That is really the question,” the admiral said, adding that the Pacific Command’s goal is for China “to be a net provider of security, not a net user of security.”
“The problem with this formulation is, for whom does Adm. Locklear think China will be providing security?” said Dean Cheng, an analyst at the Heritage Foundation. “The implicit answer is ‘to everyone,’ because the assumption is that we can somehow mold China into being ourselves — that China will see its interests as somehow congruent and coincident with those of the United States, and therefore China will assume the mantle of regional provider of public goods.
“But this is a remarkable assumption, especially in light of recent Chinese behavior. China is not interested in providing security for everyone and, frankly, not even for anyone other than itself. This is the kind of bizarre lens that led one of Adm. Locklear’s predecessors to offer to help China with its carrier development.”
China Moving Extremely Aggressively To Dominate The World
With continued global uncertainty at the start 2014, today acclaimed money manager Stephen Leeb warned King World News that China is now moving extremely aggressively to dominate the world, and one of the key lynchpins of this plan includes gold. Leeb also spoke about China’s domination of a key resource that threatens the West. Below is what Leeb had to say in this timely and powerful interview.
Leeb: “I’m focused on gold and it definitely has a bid right now. I think it’s becoming harder for the bears to drive gold down at these particular levels. Also, China increased their gold production last year. At first glance, what does that mean?….
“It means that despite dramatically lower gold prices, in the neighborhood of 25% to 28%, China still produced more gold. The interesting thing is China is not particularly rich in gold reserves. So for China to increase production in the face of a declining gold market means they are losing ever-more money, near-term, on the total gold production.
This is not a country looking to enter money-losing ventures. This is a country seeking to dominate the world’s monetary system, and they obviously see gold as a way of doing this. China continues to do everything they possibly can to accumulate as much gold as they can because … READ THE REST

Why Are Dozens Of High Ranking Officers Being Purged From The U.S. Military?
Since Barack Obama has been in the White House, high ranking military officers have been removed from their positions at a rate that is absolutely unprecedented.
Things have gotten so bad that a number of retired generals are publicly speaking out about the “purge” of the U.S. military that they believe is taking place. As you will see below, dozens of highly decorated military leaders have been dismissed from their positions over the past few years. So why is this happening? …
Is there a deliberate attempt to “reshape” the military and remove those that don’t adhere to the proper “viewpoints”? Does someone out there feel a need to get officers that won’t “cooperate” out of the way? Throughout world history, whatever comes next after a “military purge” is never good.
If this continues, what is the U.S. military going to look like in a few years?
According to the Blaze, one anonymous Pentagon official has said that even young officers have been told “not to talk about Obama or the politics of the White House”…
A Pentagon official who asked to remain nameless because they were not authorized to speak on the matter said even “young officers, down through the ranks have been told not to talk about Obama or the politics of the White House. They are purging everyone and if you want to keep your job — just keep your mouth shut.”
Now this trend appears to be accelerating. We have seen a whole bunch of news stories about military officers being dismissed lately.
Taken alone, it would be easy to dismiss those stories as “coincidences”. But when you put them together with the stories of dozens of other high ranking military officers that have been purged from the U.S. military in recent years, a very disturbing pattern emerges.
The following is a list of high ranking military officers that have been dismissed over the past few years that has been circulating all over the Internet. I think that you will agree that this list is quite stunning…

7 Ways to Predict the Peak Before the Crash
Sent: 2/11/2014 8:56 AM
By Harry S. Dent Jr., Senior Editor, Survive & Prosper
One of the great things about economics is that it’s all about numbers. This gives us much to track and, if we’re smart, many warnings to see. And right now, there’s just one question on all our minds:
When do we get out of the market?
Phrased another way: How can we know the market’s peaked and the crash is imminent?
It boils down to the usual question of timing.
If we could time the market perfectly, we’d all be rich!
Obviously, perfect timing is a fool’s game. So instead, we make the best educated forecast we can, using these seven signs to let us know when the market is peaking and it’s time to cover our asse(t)s…
Indicator #1: Margin debt reaches (or exceeds) $430 million.
That’s how high it got at the peak of the 2007 bubble. Since it has gone higher with each bubble peak since 2000, $470 million or a bit higher would be the number I would be looking for.
Indicator #2: Stock buybacks move closer to 87%.
Taking advantage of record-low interest rates, companies have been aggressively repurchasing their own shares. In doing so, they’ve artificially increased their earnings per share by 40%. Currently, 83% of S&P 500 companies are buying back their own stock. Before the 2007 peak, that number was at 87%. We’re close.
Indicator #3: Corporate profit as a percentage of GDP goes above 11%.
At the current level of 11%, corporate profit as a percentage of GDP is already at the highest ever, exceeding even the extreme 2000 bubble. We have the Fed keeping short-term interest rates near zero for so long to thank for that.
Indicator #4: Cyclically adjusted price-to-earnings ratios reach 24 to 27.
Excluding the extreme bubble of 2000 and 1929 — when P/Es topped out at 45 and 32, respectively — most major stock peaks occur between P/Es of 22 and 27. Before the correction in January, we hit 25. That is already high enough for a top.
Indicator #5: The market value of non-financial stocks, divided by the GDP ratio, rises above 1.3.
During major peaks, the ratio of market value of non-financial stocks divided by GDP tends to range between 1 and 1.5. We’ve already hit 1.3. That’s high enough, but higher would be better.
Indicator #6: The S&P price-to-revenue valuation fluctuates between -3% and 1%.
Right now, the S&P price-to-revenue valuation model is higher than it was at the peak in 1968. It’s near 2007 levels and approaching the highs of 2000.
Indicator #7: 62% bulls versus 20% bears.
The American Association of Individual Investors tracks the dumb money and everyday investors. These people got shocked out of the market after the 2008 crash. But after nearly five years of Fed stimulus and market increases, these investors began returning to the market in 2012.
What you’ll see just before a major top is a market where bulls rule at around 62%, while bears are only about 20%. We reached those levels before the last top, in late 2010. We didn’t reach those levels before the correction in January. However, we did see extreme readings for investment advisors at 62% bullish and 14% bearish. These professionals are more “in the market” and not as shell-shocked as everyday investors. Hence, they may be the better measure.
