Subject: SLS: The sham of the Thompson committee hearings (fwd)

>November 4, 1997
>BETWEEN THE LINES: Daily Commentary from Joseph Farah 
>The sham of the Thompson committee hearings 
>By Joseph Farah
>I m glad Sen. Fred Thompson and company packed up their microphones and
>gavels and called an end to their sham campaign fund-raising hearings. If
>Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr would only follow suit with his
>Whitewater investigation, at least the American people would understand
>what Vice President Al Gore meant when he said there was  no controlling
>legal authority  to hold the executive branch accountable for its crimes. 
>We re on our own, folks. The inmates are truly running the asylum. Don t
>look to this government to topple itself. It s not going to happen. 
>The problem with the Thompson committee from the beginning was that it
>would never focus attention on the fundamental issue raised by the 1996
>election -- that foreign money, mostly from China, sought to influence the
>An excellent investigative report by National Empowerment Television,  Red
>Gold Rising,  pointed out that this was not the first U.S. election a
>hostile foreign power attempted to buy. 
>Professor Gerhard Weinberg, a historian from the University of North
>Carolina, has uncovered Nazi documents showing the Germans funneled money
>into the 1940 presidential campaign in an attempt to defeat Franklin D.
>Roosevelt and, thus, keep America out of the European war. For instance,
>Weinberg points out, the Pennsylvania delegation to the Democratic National
>Convention received $160,000 to vote against Roosevelt. Imagine what
>$160,000 would buy in 1940. 
>The reason for the German  investment  was obvious, says Weinberg. 
> They were planning to go to war with the United States and they preferred
>to do it at a time of their choosing,  he said. 
>The Germans failed to elect their man in Washington. Only a year later, the
>U.S. was at war with Germany. That may be where the historic parallels end,
>because in 1996 the Chinese got exactly the results they sought. 
>The German money went through an elaborate laundering operation involving
>some of the same Swiss banks the Chinese use today. But, whereas the
>Germans used funds plundered from the Jews and the invasion of neighboring
>nations, the Chinese are doing Lenin one better -- hanging us with rope
>stolen right here in the United States. 
>While Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas, he sponsored a law in the
>Legislature giving the state teachers retirement fund wide latitude in the
>way it invested pension funds. Subsequently, those funds were invested in
>the Chinese company Norinco, which manufactures AK-47s for the People s
>Liberation Army, and COSCO, a Chinese shipping company that attempted to
>smuggle those weapons into the United States. 
>Despite ongoing investigations of COSCO s role in the weapons smuggling and
>its cozy relationship with the Chinese military, the Clinton administration
>is pushing a plan to lease a former Navy base in Long Beach, Calif., to the
>company. Congress has abdicated its oversight role in the matter and will
>allow Clinton to make the final determination as to whether the company
>poses a security threat to the United States. 
>The shady investments of the Arkansas teachers  pension funds in the 1980s
>were nearly exposed back in 1985 when the Little Rock-based Worthen Bank,
>secretly holding $52 million of the funds, became insolvent. 
>But guess who came to the rescue? Mochtar and James Riady. 
>According to investigative reporter James Ring Adams, who has been looking
>into Clinton s misuse of Arkansas state pension funds since 1992, Mochtar
>Riady told investment banker Jack Stephwillens, Clinton  is a fellow who
>could go all the way. We want to keep up our investment in him.  
>The Riadys, Indonesians in business with the Chinese, are key figures in
>the campaign fund-raising investigation. One of their companies, China
>Resources, also received Arkansas pension funds. 
>But the pension funds are small potatoes compared with the favors the
>Clinton administration is offering its Chinese benefactors these days --
>the COSCO deal, the sale of nuclear technology and a promise by Clinton to
>keep the U.S. from  interfering  in its relationship with Taiwan. 
>The Thompson committee kept looking under rocks for some quid pro quo for
>the hundreds of thousands of dollars in mysterious Asian money that flowed
>into the Clinton and Democratic National Committee coffers in 1996. At the
>very moment Congress is folding its investigative tent, those payoffs are
>being realized in spades -- not under rocks, but right out in the open.
