What's behind the Xi Jinping visit to Ireland?

Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping is the Coming Man in China. He'll shortly be the next Supremo. The world is at his feet. With a massive delegation of nearly 200 he visits Europe. And the only country he calls on, and incredibly, stays the best part of four days, is tiny insignificant Ireland, anchored in the howling Atlantic off the north-west coast of the Continent.

What's going on here?

Now we can safely put aside all the usual shite about long-standing links and mutual respect and extraordinary strong trade links between the two peoples, and other such cliches and bromides. He didn't come here to see the Cliffs of Moher or see a hurling match in Croke Park or even to sign trade deals. Strong and all as the trade is between the two countries, our tiny 3.5 million people get dwarfed by numerous other European giants such as Germany, France or the UK.
Yet he didn't go near them?

I don't know what's behind it.

Anyone any ideas?

Good heavens Savant what is the matter with you? Do you really know nothing at all of the age old close links in every field between our two great nations, Ireland and China? Do you not know that hurling originated in China, along with Ogham and the fada (look at Chinese writing---full of fadas). Isn't this guy, this coming man in Beijing, related to the Lees of Swanlinbar and also of Two Mile Gallop, and therefore is he not one of our own?
Hey; maybe he wants to buy the place, the damp island here we call home. Thirty pieces should about do it, especially if we have a new Rambo Burke in charge. Oh, Savant.....!

Maybe his strategists have noticed the small population, the very lax attitude to defense (a strong indicator of weakness to the likes of the Chinese ), the politicans who roll over and play dead for foreign investors,the especially vunerable economic position at this point in time which makes them even more pliable, the strategic location, the stupidity and weakness of the products of Irish parliamentary democracy- people like Kenny and his cronies ( odds are the Chicoms know more about shatter's motivations than Kenny does ) who hide under the bed and shoot the messanger when a lowly mayor tells the truth about 21st century Ireland, the potential for chinese immigration. It sure as hell ain't for our benefit. For all we know they've drawn up grand long term plans for Ireland as the white race dwindles. You can bet your bottom dollar they've gamed occupation of US soil. What are the marines and aircraft carriers for.

john said...

hoosier, had "we" listened to "ourselves" then, the jap krap would have never gained a foothold. The problems there are numerous [unions, lack of import duties, government, media to a LARGE extent, etc etc-not necessarily to be gone into here] but even if you reject the facts, there is a significant fact that cannot be ignored. The japanese and the chinese are NOT the same. Other than physical features, and even those are different if you really look, they do not share the same outlooks, mindsets or skillsets. The japs put out krap, but they were TRYING to do good given the materials they had to work with and were trying to become legitimate producers. They never, to the best of my knowledge, intentionally poisoned products, murdered 45 million of their own people [that the chicoms admit to] nor do they boil live puppies in restaurants and consider aborted fetus a delicacy.
The red chines put out garbage on purpose, knowing that idiot roundeye will buy anything thats 13 cents cheaper even though it has to be replaced almost immediately...thence getting to sell more junk. Its part of their economic conquest, and due to "our" stupidity and short sightedness, its working quite nicely. Aint workin on me, but I'm a minority.
Dont want japanese people or products in my country, or any of my racial kinsmen's countries, but at least i have some respect for the japs. they work for the good of THEIR own people and protect them and their economy. THAT we could learn from them! The red chinese? Purely imperialistic barbarians. Niggers with a brain as has been said. Boycott their junk at all cost.

I feel a lot of comment here is flippant. I also think that Savant makes a valid point, or at least asks a valid question. It IS distinctly odd that the soon to be most powerful man in China spends 4 days here and doesn't go anywhere else in Europe.

Easy to make jokes/be sarcastic but there's a real question in there.

Could be China is considering buying Irish debt, as a few US hedge funds are reportedly doing. Maybe some kind of trade quid pro quo about that was discussed.

They know they can roll in here with minimal opposition, bankrolling and thereby owning an island on the doorstep of many European powers. A former British colony at that, what a scalp.

They might have their eye on potential resources offshore and realise our incompetent upper classes are begging to sell off the family silverware.

This is all speculation on my part, but you're 100% right they aren't here for the coddle.

"Everything they (the Chinese) produce is toxic garbage. They're like niggers with brains."

That must have been precisely the British sentiment when the industrial revolution finally reached Germany in the late 19th century and when my ancestors commenced flooding the world with the - initially cheap - fruits of mass production.

We all know how that turned out.

On the other hand, when I look at the barely functional dunces our high schools turn out these days, I wonder for how long German engineering will tower over Chinese achievements.

Teachers here seem to think that the ability to read, write and handle numbers below 100 is not important anymore. That social skills and creativity are more vital and that "the cloud" will do all the hard thinking.

The Chinese apparently don't see it that way. I wonder which worldview will prevail.

P.S.: Savant - Ireland is a pretty nice place from which to project air- and maritime power over the Atlantic. Not today. Not tomorrow. But decades from now. The Chinks surely don't build carrier groups to cruise solely near their own coast. What would be the point?

BOB IN SWANSEA

Follow the Money to The root cause of Britain's (And Ireland's Problems)

THE CHINESE LEADERS ARE WEIGHING UP EIRE FOR A LOAN

This is my thoughts on what is going on.

1. Politicians compete with each other and make promises to give ever greater handouts/benefits to anyone who will vote for them.
2. The line of recipients for taxpayers money gets longer and longer.
3. One pound in every four the government has at it's disposal is borrowed. (Debt = £1.3 Trillion)
4. Who is it borrowed from? We are not told.
5. When do they want it back. Again we are not told, but we have something of a clue, when Cameron (in opposition at the time) says, "Our grandchildren will be paying this debt" back" So we can assume that this is a multi generational debt. So my guess would be 20-30 years

But the shadowy lenders are not stupid.

The Lenders must know, as we do, that the white people are not having enough grandchildren, and they are NOT going to be around in 30 years time to pay these debts. So the lenders must be asking, "How are you going to give us our money back"

The answer they are given is "we will import people from areas and cultures that put reproduction at the top of their priorities" and this seems to satisfy the lenders. Although I doubt whether anyone asks "but will the Somalian babies being born in the UK today WANT to pay high taxes to look after a bunch of geriatrics like us in 30 years time?"

So next time you see a line of school children in an area of the country that has not yet been "culturally enriched" and the BBC camera swoops in on the one ethnic child in the line, you will now know the reason why. And the reason is that: nothing reassures the holders of our debts more than knowing that all areas of Britain have children who will one day grow up and pay this generation's debts.

So what can we do about it? We can start by improving ourselves

MEN
1. Stop behaving like infantalized idiots.
2. Once you get past 24 years old, BE A MAN. (Not a TV Celeb)
3. Bring back multi generational white households
4. If possible avoid the benefits system (Don't be a Frank Gallagher)
5. Treat women respectfully.

WOMEN
1. Stop behaving like infantalized idiots. Competing with men who can drink the most is not going to make you woman of the year
2. Single Mums are heroes. But bringing up children on your own is no joke, and who would CHOOSE it as a lifestyle. You need to make better choices and only have sex with compatible committed men. Why did you have sex with him? He made me laugh! is not a basis for a relationship
3. If possible avoid the benefits system. I once met an American with 6 daughters and he had taught them all to earn money online eBay, Websites etc, so they could all be financially independent if needs be.
4. Choose men with care.

We have to breed our way out of this crisis. This is the one job WE CANNOT OUTSOURCE any longer

China sets up fund to bankroll takeovers

Boasting $3.2 trillion in foreign currency reserves, China has created a new fund aimed at financing takeover bids abroad. The fund also seeks to boost China’s currency in global financial markets.

In its drive to step up overseas investment, the Chinese government has set up a new fund worth 12 billion yuan ($1.9 billion), Shanghai International Group said in a statement Friday.

Shanghai International said it was responsible for running the fund, describing it as China’s “biggest ever fund of its kind.”

“The yuan-backed fund will help domestic companies go abroad in seeking more investment opportunities,” China’s central bank deputy governor Liu Shiyu was quoted by the official Shanghai Daily newspaper as saying.

The fund is planned to grow to 50 billion yuan, and can be boosted to 150 billion yuan through loans and bond issues.

Apart from financing overseas acquisitions, it is also intended to promote greater use of the Chinese currency yuan – also known as renminbi – in foreign transactions.


As I say ... with no comment.

The Chinese are buying up resources around the world. Sure, their economy is about to go into the dumper for a few years, but they look down the road long-term.

They will have off-shore oil rigs off the North Coast of Cuba soon.

So you have any sedimentary basins offshore Ireland that need to be drilled up? Like the North Sea and off Norway? I would look there for an answer.

Iron Felix said...

A perusal of the comments made thus far on this matter, and specifically those from Anonymous (four, in total)
Finn McCool, Hector G and Brian Boru, if summarised all together, will furnish a very good description of the underlying conditions whereby any Chinese takeover of Ireland will actually be a walk over.
Nothing has changed in a millenium; still the same drunken and dissolute cattle whom calling themselves "the Irish People", still the same infinitely corrupt venal morons, the same bunglers, perverts, sadists, incompetents, premature ejaculators, running the place, the same absence of any sort of social cohesion, of any sense of proprietorship, of responsibility; still the same underlying feeling that they are somehow accidentally in possession of stolen goods and that the rightful owners could reappear at any moment, and meantime best rip off whatever you can. If you note how easily all that energy resource off their West coast was sold off without a thin dime to benefit that which in their asinine conceit they think of as the "Irish Nation", then surely it must be clear how easily the whole country can be sold off from under their feet; see too their "tribunes" gouging each other to be the one doing the selling...........Yet, was it not ever thus? This whole myth of Ireland being "conquered" is just that. The place was sold off for buttons to every knacker with a hacksaw, a few quid, and a sergeant and ten men to handle anyone with a shred of moxie, the very natives themselves gladly assisting, happily delivering to the hangman any of their own who made any sort of stand.A staple of Irish history classes in schools, I am told, was the mantra that England "brought Ireland to her knees" and I wonder if I am the only person in the western world who thinks that this was UP to her knees, not down.
I think in all honesty that what finally finished the Irish was this "Home Rule" shit, the one genuinely cruel thing the British ever did. Imagine giving someone a burden they cannot carry and at the same time cannot throw off, simply because the pathetic fuckers asked for it (but only on the covert supposition that it would NOT be forthcoming....).
Look, there are three things on the European horizon. A) An Islamic takeover, imposition of Sharia, slaughter of all infidels....(you and me and our descendants)extinction of the greatest culture in all history. B)Niggerisation; invasion by an unstoppable flood of Africans, scores of millions of panga-wielding ullullating kaffirs with their AIDS and their child rape and their endless dereliction, crime, filth and general parasitism (extinction of the greatest culture in all History).
C) Sinification, the first hint of which may have been seen in recent days.These guys have a cultural tradition; they either absorb and sinify whatever they encounter or, if it turns out to be indigestible,they annihilate it without further ado.They are not, themselves, a creative people, contrary to received opinion (Extinction, etc., to follow)
These three dynamics are silently multiplying along the margins of our Europe now, and the coming century will see them at work, seperately or in combination as the case may be. So where do the Irish stand in all this? Well, never having had the balls of so much as a bull canary I would guess there will be some kind of panicky scamper back into the UK. This will put us in a position not unlike that of Germany in WW1; of its treaty with Austria-Hungary it said "We are shackled to a corpse". As and when the tsunami finally shows on the horizon, this will be the futile best we can do; shackling ourselves to a corpse......
We, we here in Europe, and I have to say this,we are the only chinks in their armour.

Franzs comment about British attitudes to German Industry are quite accurate.

Jerome K Jerome,the great Victorian English comic novelist,wrote as a follow up to the wonderful Three Men in a Boat,an account of a bicycle journey through Germany called Three Men on the Bummel though not nearly as well known and nowhere near as funny.

But.

One passage has always stuck in my mind in which Jerome,anything but a British chauvinist,pooh-poohs German ambitions to match British industrial might.

The reasons he gave are that no people(the Germans!) who took three hour lunches could possibly compete with Britain.And anyway,they drank far too much!.

So he got that one right then.

Colonization purposes has be one of China's primary objectives, considering their expanding population base, and what better way to manage that gargantuan effort other than to buy your way into a ready-built infrastructure. Invading armies only destroy those valuable goods and properties, and at a needless cost to the vast human "resources".

They have the available funds to "invest" in small countries like Ireland or New Zealand and simply hold the prime real estate as collateral, knowing full-well the debt will never be repaid, so no surprise there.

Vancouver, British Columbia is yet valuable piece of valuable real estate under the eye of the Chinese, and even have a Chinese-born Police Chief.

...also, on another issue.

"...and the BBC camera swoops in on the one ethnic child in the line..."

You too, eh? Same occurrences happen here in Canada with passive regularity wherever a television camera is pointed.

The plot, the theme, the commercial message is now essentially lost to me because I'm now looking to see when the proverbial racial minority (mostly Black) is ready to pop up.

Ice hockey is Canada's unofficial national sport for which the greater numbers of attendees are White fans... probably 99%.

But leave it to the C.B.C. to find that one proverbial coloured "needle" in a White haystack to zoom-in to demonstrate our wonderful "inclusivity". This practice has become so common, it's really quite pathetic.

During a N.H.L. (National Hockey League) game several weeks ago, the one(?) Black player in the entire league was thoroughly humiliated when an unknown fan threw a banana onto the ice. Of course, we all know the significance of the message. The act was impolite but understandable, yet this "racist" incident was made out to be a major newsworthy story across the entire country's airwaves for days.

Our once-cherished freedom of speech is lost, so fed-up Canadians must resort to symbology to get their point across.

If i may inexorably drift off the subject while pretending to stay on it by larding the conversation with references to "China" ...

You may find this really interesting, and it may go a long way to explaining America's most unusual reluctance to "Bomb them raghead fucks back to the stone age. Oh, wait, they're already there ..."

I refer, of course to those polecats du jour in Iran.

http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2012/02/armageddon-approaches/#more-12803

“An Israeli attack on Iran would create a disaster.” — Zbigniew Brzezinski

“The entire lake will become a killing field…the Gulf will run red with American blood.” — Military specialist Mark Gaffney.


Bombing Iran could be the final nail in the coffin of America—a decaying and morally bankrupt superpower where torture has been normalized and where the President is now free to kill anyone he chooses, anywhere in the world, who he happens to suspect is a terrorist.

Right now, Iran appears to be the object of universal detestation, at least among those who control the mainstream media and who are anxious to persuade the easily duped masses that Iran is a major threat to civilization.

Iran is perfectly capable of shutting down the Strait of Hormuz if it wishes, doing immense damage to the US navy in the process. It possesses a vast array of anti-ship weapons called Sunburn missiles, which it has procured from Russia and China over the last decade. These are state-of-the-art weapons developed by the Russians as a low-cost challenge to the expensive, tech-heavy weaponry of the US. Specifically, they are designed to sink ships, including America’s titanic aircraft carriers.

The imminent conflict, which now belongs in the high probability spectrum, is a conflict into which Russia and China cannot fail to be drawn. Their interests are inextricably linked with those of Iran. You could say that Iran is their semi-independent protectorate and ally.

If Iran were attacked and if Russia and China stood by and did nothing, they would lose face forever. They would be signaling to the world that they are weaklings, only too ready to cower at the feet of the American superbully. Indeed, they would then be next on America’s hit list.

Russia has a new 100-ton monster of a ballistic missile in the pipeline. It is aptly named Satan. And it will be used to devastating effect against America if America gets too big for its boots and gets overly aggressive.

Chinese Major General Zhang Zhaozhong recently stated that if America or Israel attacked Iran, “China will not hesitate to protect Iran—even with a third world war.”


Now that's what I call fightin' talk. Interesting times, babies.

ROTHSCHILDS WANT IRAN’S BANKS By Pete Papaherakles

Could gaining control of the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran (CBI) be one of the main reasons that Iran is being targeted by Western and Israeli powers?

As tensions are building up for an unthinkable war with Iran, it is worth exploring Iran’s banking system compared to its U.S., British and Israeli counterparts.

Some researchers are pointing out that Iran is one of only three countries left in the world whose central bank is not under Rothschild control.

Before 9-11 there were reportedly seven: Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Iran. By 2003, however, Afghanistan and Iraq were swallowed up by the Rothschild octopus, and by 2011 Sudan and Libya were also gone. In Libya, a Rothschild bank was established in Benghazi while the country was still at war.

Islam forbids the charging of usury, the practice of charging excessive, unreasonably high, and often illegal interest rates on loans,and that is a major problem for the Rothschild banking system. Until a few hundred years ago usury was also forbidden in the Christian world and was even punishable by death. It was considered exploitation and enslavement.

Since the Rothschilds took over the Bank of England around 1815, they have been expanding their banking control over all the countries of the world. Their method has been to get a country’s corrupt politicians to accept massive loans, which they can never repay, and thus go into debt to the Rothschild banking powers.

If a leader refuses to accept the loan, he is oftentimes either ousted or assassinated. And if that fails, invasions can follow, and a Rothschild usury-based bank is established.

The Rothschilds exert powerful influence over the world’s major news agencies. By repetition, the masses are duped into believing horror stories about evil villains. The Rothschilds control the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the IMF, the World Bank and the Bank of International Settlements.

Also they own most of the gold in the world as well as the London Gold Exchange, which sets the price of gold every day. It is said the family owns over half the wealth of the planet — estimated by Credit Suisse to be $231 trillion—and is controlled by Evelyn Rothschild, the current head of the family.

Objective researchers contend that Iran is not being demonized because they are a nuclear threat, just as the Taliban, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Libya’s Muammar Qadaffi were not a threat.

What then is the real reason? Is it the trillions to be made in oil profits, or the trillions in war profits? Is it to bankrupt the U.S. economy, or is it to start World War III? Is it to destroy Israel’s enemies, or to destroy the Iranian central bank so that no one is left to defy Rothschild’s money racket?

It might be any one of those reasons or, worse—it might be all of them.

(We are already in the grip of the Rothschild banksters here in Australia. We must get our Commonwealth Bank back where it belongs - in the hands of the people.) Editor.


Has anyone ever stopped to think how the world would change if the Rothschilds just ... went away?

In the few decades after being given their independence, and setting aside the idiot notion that "independence" is, like a tray of cakes, something to be passed around, to be given or refused, there were people who did believe in it. There were real efforts made--the matter I am dealing with here--to move Ireland up the infrastructural totem pole. These efforts, if thought of at all today, are openly derided, their sponsors patronised and ridiculed.
I am mindful of all this arising from news that we are see a massive sale of state assets shortly, so as to raise the dough with which to bail ourselves out of the current impasse.
Look at this now; all these state assets came into existence by being taxpayer funded. E.S.B., Aer Lingus, and the rest. Of course, being state run they quickly came to be operated for the benefit of their state managements, their chums in the trade movement, and anyway, STC (sod the customer), or up yours Jack.Therefore they required substantial and increasing subsidies year on year to meet their running costs; all again funded by that poor gobshite the taxpayer, what a surprise! So now, after billions of cash bled from the people, these are all to be sold off and the proceeds used to pay off foreign usurers, the whole transaction being rammed through by our own "sovereign" government.
And still there are idiots around who think we are fit to run our own affairs, who take umbrage and call me a racist when I observe, in consideration of the kleptocracy we have made for ourselves here, that there is too much "african" in the Irish nature, who characterise me as "cruel" for pointing out the glaringly obvious and, more importantly perhaps for failing to lavish praise on our "great little country" regardless of whether such is merited. In all this, one thing is clear; with people such as this, purchase of the whole country, lock stock and smoking barrel, will be done effortlessly by the gamboge lads with their small change.
In closing may I enter the caveat that writing, as per Anons post,in mothernfugginenglishfugginyeah as a desirable option, much less any kind of solution, is best eschewed.

This in fact is exactly how a good deal of the world has run for the last three or four decades. Publicly owned assets which have worked okay for decades suddenly need to be run more "efficiently". THey are "privatised" which means a few political bum-buddies become wildly overpaid "Czars" (sound familiar, no?) ... services (which were already tax-subsidised now become "user pays" (and pays and pays and fucking pays) to the point that passports issued for a few bucks in 1970 now command swinging fees (like several hundred to a thousand).

Suddenly the system is declared "eternally non-profit" and cannot be fixed, so it is sold to an Arizona pension fund or something equally ridiculous and all fees triple (again) overnight, but now there's no-one to bitch to ... and when you do phone to complain you're put on eternal hold by Lakshmi in Bangladesh, who says his name's Andrew or Damien, while shitty electronic covers of Abba and Katrina and the Waves assail your eardrums and melt your fucking brain.

And this is progress?

Bring on the fucking revolution. I'm tired of waiting.

UN - your description of public companies is100% on the button, at least in Ireland anyway. The 'progression' you refer to has happened again and again, and more are planned.

Bad and all as the overpaid under worked ESB staff are now, I don't see a newly privatised company sending it's employees out over Christams to get supplies operational when real bad weather hits.

None of you should buy Chinese at all. Screw "quality". I don't care if they shit gold. It's NOT White. Stop paying for your own extermination.

Iron Felix. Ok. But do you have any suggestions? This is a genuine question.

Hector G. there may ultimately be only one solution; heads on stakes, all along the frontier. We could be faced with a fight to the finish, given an implacable enemy, although I am thinking here of Africans and Islamics.

Savant, you say there are at least 400,000 ethnics in Ireland?

First time I've actually seen a figure.

If you're right, then that truly is a disaster.

It took Britain approximately 40 years, give or take, to achieve an 8% ethnic minority (more now, of course). But, clearly, Ireland has gained the same level of ethnic ratio in a much, much shorter space of time!

The Irish, having seen the balls-up in other parts of Europe with this misguided policy, are truly in a position to blame no-one but themselves for this utter shambles.

Yes, I know it's primarily the politicians, but the electorate must also bear some of the responsibility.

Once again, I reiterate (pardon the redundancy) the blacks and the ragheads are the plague fleas that nip at the ankles and create the blue spots ... aaaaaand who transports the fleas into the house?

Rattus Liberalus Niveus and Rattus Iudacus.

Without the rats ... there are no fleas.
Go to the core of the problem. Is that so hard?

This may seem off topic, but I''ll leave that for you to decide.

It is said that the US is suffering from an official unemployment rate of about nine percent, Many Americans feel that this is unreasonably optimistic. They cite figures of 12, 14 ... some of them even 18%.

These guys don't think so.

The True Unemployment Rate: 36%
Workforce participation is the metric that really matters.


by John Hayward

How would you define “unemployment?” Statistics on unemployment are bandied around in the media all the time. Changes in these statistics are hailed as good or bad news for the President, with varying degrees of emphasis from the news networks, depending on which party the President belongs to. But what do these statistics truly measure?

Would you define “unemployment” as measuring “people who want a job, but can’t get one?” This is, broadly speaking, the definition embraced by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The trick to making those numbers dance lies in measuring “people who want a job.” The widely reported U-3 unemployment metric, currently standing at 8.3 percent, is very aggressive in shaving off people who have not made recent efforts to find work. It is further distorted by massive “seasonal adjustments,” which made over a million people vanish into thin air last month.

This is why the official unemployment rate gets lower when the American workforce contracts. Workforce contraction is a very bad thing. People who simply cannot find work, and languish on unemployment insurance for years, are the last thing a prosperous country needs… but those people don’t count in the official unemployment rate. For example, if everyone under the age of 25 abruptly stopped looking for work, it would be an economic disaster, but the official unemployment rate would go down, because the pool of people looking for work would get smaller.

(That’s not quite as far-fetched an example as it might sound, incidentally. Even the heavily-massaged U-3 unemployment rate currently sits at 23.2 percent for ages 16-19, and 13.3 percent for ages 20-24… and it’s about two percent higher for young men. Policies that increase the cost of labor, such as minimum-wage increases and mandated benefits, have a particularly punishing effect on young entry-level workers, since their labor has less intrinsic value than experienced older employees.)


Read on ... it's not good.
