Green Boondoggle Could Give ChiCom Military Advanced Military Technology

We are doing more for the communist Chinese military that will soon challenge ours for dominance than financing it with the payments on Obama’s monstrous and ever-growing debt; soon we may provide it with advanced American technology — in the name of saving the planet, of course.

Obama awarded a grant of $250 million of Stimulus money to a firm called A123 to make batteries for electric cars, which also [like Solyndra et al.] went bankrupt and now is trying to pay off its investors by auctioning the company.

The high bidder at $256 million in a December auction was the Wanxiang Group, which has close ties to Communist China’s government. Its chief executive is one of the wealthiest men in China, a prominent figure in the Chinese Communist Party.

This sale is dangerous to U.S. security because it involves the transfer of advanced battery technology using lithium iron phosphate, which produces longer-life, lighter-weight, higher-power and more stable batteries that can operate in both very low and very high temperatures. …

China is eager for this acquisition because of its potential use in space weapons, anti-satellite missiles, lasers, and counterspace systems. Retired navy Vice Admiral Barry Costello, former commander of the Navy’s Third Fleet, says the sale of A123 will give a big boost to China’s military expansion and warfare capability in space, cyber warfare, and unmanned vehicles, all of which rely on battery power. …

If Wanxiang owns A123′s intellectual property and highly skilled technicians, that means controlling today’s battery technology plus a ten-year leap in development. Senators John Thune (R-SD) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) warn that the deal could give Wanxiang “access to these defense contracts and technology used by multiple branches of the U.S. military.”

That 10 years’ worth of precious technology was bought and paid for by American taxpayers.

The U.S. military has made a big investment in A123′s technology, which the Army’s chief of technology acquisition has called the “technology of the decade.” To develop it, the Air Force spent $4 million, the Navy spent $700,000, and the Army spent $21.8 million.

This is why electing a guy who spent his entire life surrounded and mentored by communists, who belonged to the communist New Party in Chicago, and who spews Marxist rhetoric at every opportunity wasn’t such a great move regarding America’s strategic interests.

Soon to get a fresh boost from US technology.

    The next thing may be Unilateral Nuclear Disarmament, with our “surplus” nuclear technology and material sold at auction to Chinese “Green” Companies, Arab “Spring” States and Soviet “Business Partners”. It would a plus on the balance sheet with the proceeds going to pay for more Obamaphones.

    See, you don’t have to hide your birth certificate, graduate Harvard and spend years Community Organizing to be an Obama…

  2. What’s with the wide-whites on their jeeps and missile launchers? lol

    Love those retro 1950s whitewalls.

    Have you ever noticed how, after spending decades and hundreds-of-Billions, developing a new weapons system or fighter jet, the ChiComs put out the “exact” same thing a year latter? Have you also noticed that a huge number of “scientists” working in our defense industry on top-secret projects are, Chinese?

    Just at the point when you think you’ve outsmarted is when they have you. Dealing with the weak, gullible, nitwits who run our foreign policy only makes the ChiComs look even smarter. That’s why i laugh when i hear some fool say, “America is the worlds only super-power.”

    Wonder if Loral’s fingerprints are on this too?

  6. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Those of us right minded people know that it’s Capitalism with it’s profit motive which unleashes the best of humanities potential
    Marxism by design robs the human spirit of imagination and drive.
    This obsession with equality of outcome means the engineer cleans toilets, while the “son of a Marxist” (party loyalist) is adequately qualified to preside over this misery.
    Communists used to have to send spies to pick this stuff up.
    Now with moonbats in charge comes a blowout sale on new invention.
    Next week the Lightworkers speeches will inevitably contain references on how far ahead of us the Chicoms are in battery technology.

    @ the dead Hayek –

    What – like genetically engineered food, xeno and phyto-estrogens all over the damn place, horribly designed nuclear plants, and on and on and on?

    When “the moral obligation of a corporation is to make profit for its shareholders (Friedman)”, your comment guarantees absolutely nothing. How many superb inventions have been held back or destroyed so that those already profiting in large corporation don’t have their income streams disrupted? How many inventors have either been hounded into self-destruction or literally murdered to protect the “profit” of business ventures already in existence? They are legion.

    The possibility of making a decent profit off one’s expertise does unleash human potential, but making the carte blanche statement that profit causes “the best” potential to be released is either naive or ignorant.

    “Here, have a smoke.” “Would you like an SSRI drug to deal with that depression? It works.” “Prescribe her some Thalidomyde.” “Hey, this new stuff called asbestos will solve that problem.” “Butter? Use margarine instead.” “Aspartame.” “Would you like to buy this new fuel-air explosive we came up with?”

    Shall I go on?

    And of “capitalism” – what makes that system so special? You’ve been brainwashed/programmed to support and defend grand larceny. Mises, Hayek, it doesn’t matter. The were all fans of usury, just a “kinder, gentler” form of usury. What’s wrong with a market economy combined with a non-usurious, state issued currency that expands in volume only at the rate of economic growth instead of private central banks that create money out of thin air and charge you interest for them possessing the federalized privilege of “we the people” (the lumpen)having to pay these thieves interest and principle for something that is nothing more than a bookkeeping entry? Explain the logic and benefits of this so-called amoral “capitalism” you adore so much versus my argument, let alone the moral implications!

    Defending this dying usurious system, and doing so because of its insatiable greed, sir, is a despicable notion and non-defensible by anyone with any sense of morals. Truly “right-minded people” are moral people, and with God’s grace what will rise from the ashes of this vulture-ridden hellhole after its collapse will be a system that outlaws usurious theft, monopoly or that near so, and has a government so small that the economically fascist horror that dictates essentially all economic activity in this country will never exist again.
