Which Party really promoted China?

I have heard and read republican talking points blasting at President Obama hosting the President of China. Even to the point of criticizing his daughter's practice of the language.

Further points are at the inhuman practices of China. I wonder if a list of inhuman practices during the tenure of the past Republican Presidents which have helped promote China to the world trade since President Nixon would be beneficial as there are many more years of it during the past Republican Presidents since Nixon.

Here are just some items about the elevation of China to a world trade standing and helping to promote the "one world order" philosophy.

Welcome to the new world order of George Bush Sr.

“Now, we can see a new world coming into view. A world in which there is the very real prospect of a new world order.”

Presidents that have been to China.

Nixon 1972
Ford 1975
Reagan 1984
Bush Sr. 1989
Clinton 1998
Bush Jr. 2005,29307,1939784,00.html

The US-China Business Council, Inc. (USCBC) founded 1973, President Nixon in office

And you have long time Republican, Memphis own Frederick W. Smith (FEDEX founder and college friend of George Bush.)

US-China Business Council Welcomes Decisive Step on China WTO Accession
(Washington, September 17).

The US-China Business Council has welcomed news from Geneva that negotiators have taken the final substantive step leading to Chinese membership in the World Trade Organization (WTO). Members of the WTO Working Party on China's accession to the global trade body reached agreement Monday on language defining the terms on which China will become a full member of the WTO. Only procedural measures at the WTO and in Beijing, including ratification of the accession documents by China's legislature, remain to be completed.
The US-China Business Council wishes to express the sense of grief and loss shared by all of its members as they grapple with the enormity of yesterday's horrifying developments in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania.
Frederick W. Smith, chairman of the US-China Business Council and chief executive of FedEx Corporation, hailed the critical step taken in Geneva: "

Statement 2001, Sept.1 – George Bush Jr. current President

And more promotion of China. July 2001, Bush president.

substantially increased opportunities for American industrial and agricultural producers, service providers and investors under the extraordinarily far-reaching accession terms our representatives had successfully negotiated with China (terms that our current negotiating team led by Ambassador Robert Zoellick further solidified in last month's crucial Shanghai negotiations); and
long-term assurance that a China fully committed to conducting its international trade according to the world's "rules of the road" under WTO, and subject to multilateral disciplines under WTO dispute resolution, was a far better bet for America and the world trade system than a China excluded from full participation in the world trade community and thus unbound by global expectations and requirements.

David Kernell guilty on Palin Email hack.

I feel sorry for David, he seems more like what was a happy college student, that thought that messing around with the Palin email as a big joke. I doubt he ever thought of it as a specific "attack" against her or even really a "hack".

"David C. Kernell, 22, was convicted on federal charges of destroying records to hamper a federal investigation and unlawfully obtaining information from a protected computer but was acquitted of wire fraud. A mistrial was declared on an identity theft charge.

U.S. District Judge Thomas W. Phillips said he would set a sentencing date after prosecutors decide whether to retry Kernell on the identity theft charge, the Knoxville News-Sentinel reported."

Reported by UPI:

And Palin compares it to "Watergate"!
That could lead one to wonder if she thinks of herself as corrupt as Nixon. Just a thought!
