People’s Republic of China Premier Zhu Rongji and President Bill
Clinton are scheduled to meet in the White House on April 8, 1999. There
is a reason for the close and warm welcome extended to the top prince of
the Beijing princelings by President Clinton. Zhu and Clinton have
worked closely to help each other in the past. Zhu, in his own way, can
be considered a cash contributor to Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election
Zhu and Clinton are expected to discuss economic issues, security and
human rights. Zhu is also scheduled to visit six American cities, Los
Angeles, Washington, Denver, Chicago, New York and Boston.
According to the White House, “Premier Zhu and Vice President Al Gore
will co-chair the second meeting of the U.S.-China Forum on Environment
Zhu is so well known in the White House that this author had to use a
lawsuit in federal court to obtain information on the Chinese leader.
The material on Zhu was provided directly to Bernard Schwartz by
President Clinton in 1994 just prior to the now infamous August 1994
trade trip to Beijing with Ron Brown.
Zhu, according to his White House bio, “was labeled a rightist” and
spent “20 years in an obscure position in the economic planning
bureaucracy.” Zhu rose from his lowly position to become the “Governor,
People’s Bank of China” and eventually the “Mayor of Shanghai.”
Zhu’s mix of western capitalist rewards in an eastern communist
framework appealed to “paramount leader Deng Xiaoping.” Thus, early in
1990, Zhu led a delegation of mayors to the United States and his ideas
began to spread west.
Zhu has also visited Australia, New Zealand and several European
nations. Zhu speaks some English, enjoys reading Chinese literature,
watching Peking opera and playing the huqin, a two-stringed instrument.
He and his wife have a son and they enjoy playing tennis.
Besides having a mean back-hand, in 1994, Zhu was also the Communist
inner party backer of General Ding Henggao, commander of COSTIND (the
Chinese Commission of Science Technology and Industry for National
In 1994, Schwartz, then the CEO of Loral Aerospace and a
million-dollar donor to the DNC, requested to meet with Lt. General Shen
Roujun, vice minister of COSTIND, and various other members of the
Vice Minister Shen (a.k.a. Lt. General Shen) was then working for the
mastermind of Chinese espionage, General Ding Henggao, the commander of
COSTIND. Schwartz also met with the prime political backer of COSTIND
General Ding inside the all-important Communist Central Committee (CCC),
The PLA obtained various advanced technologies from Schwartz and his
Loral Corporation with the blessing of Ron Brown. General Shen, General
Ding, and Schwartz all made themselves rich on western technology, while
passing advanced military technology to the Chinese Army. Schwartz, of
course, passed some of that money back to Bill Clinton in the form of
General Ding and the PLA also passed money directly to Clinton
through various agents such as Johnny Chung and Charlie Trie. In
exchange, the PRC warlords got access to U.S. secrets other than W88
nuclear bombs. For example, Lt. General Shen’s son, Shen Jun, was the
lead software engineer for Hughes on all Chinese satellites.
Loral provided the PLA with radiation-hardened encrypted telemetry
control systems such as the missing board of chips from the 1996
Intelsat crash. In fact, according to the State Department, Loral
satellite CDMA communications technology was preferred by the PLA.
According to a 1996 Department of State cable to President Clinton by
Beijing Ambassador Sasser, the PLA was using money from Chinese
billionaire Li Ka-Shing to finance Chinese army communications systems.
In 1994, Schwartz made the decision to save a few million dollars by
purchasing Chinese rockets to launch his satellites. The wisdom of
Schwartz’s purchase is reflected in the destruction of over $200 million
in Loral satellites by a failed PRC Long March and the death of 200
innocent civilians who got in the way. The same crash provided FBI
agents with the Intelsat control box, minus the critical encrypted
Loral’s Schwartz also decided to purchase a low-cost Russian rocket
to put the CDMA Globalstar system into orbit. Schwartz had to get
Clinton to personally sign a waiver in July of 1996 that Commerce
official William Reinsch worked on in 1995, prior to Commerce oversight
of the Loral satellites.
The 1996 presidential waiver for the Loral export included two fully
operational, encrypted, telemetry control stations to be built inside
China. Loral even requested the presidential waiver be held back and
then modified during the FBI investigation of the missing encryption
chips from the Loral satellites. The modified waiver included the new
telemetry stations for Beijing.
Alas, “Murphy’s law” struck again, and the cheap Russian rocket blew
up in 1998, destroying 12 more Loral/Globalstar satellites in a single
failure. So much for saving money with cheap Chinese and Russian
In March 1999, during a Beijing press conference, Premier Zhu Rongji
ridiculed allegations of Chinese espionage. Zhu compared the charge to
tales from “the Arabian nights.”
Zhu said the claims are part of “an internal struggle” in the United
States and that a “small group” of Americans are “plotting” to ruin
Zhu Rongji also claimed that Beijing would never target missiles at
“our Taiwan brothers and sisters.”
Taiwan Ministry of National Defense spokesman Maj. General Kung
Fan-ting dismissed Zhu’s comments as propaganda. General Kung said
hundreds of Chinese M-9 and M-11 missiles (Dong Feng 15 and Dong Feng
11) based in Fujian province can cover the whole of Taiwan. Taiwanese
Defense officials noted the test-firing of similar missiles off their
coast in 1995 and 1996, underscored the need for a missile defense
The so-called 1996 test-firings almost led to nuclear war over
Taiwan. Zhu may deny pointing missiles at Taiwan but he certainly cannot
deny threats by PRC officials to drop thermonuclear weapons on
California. And the threat has not dissipated.
Clearly, Zhu is angry that Congress has finally bypassed the inept
Clinton administration and overwhelmingly passed a U.S. missile defense
project. A U.S. defense shield could neutralize Beijing’s biggest saber
which they are now rattling at our Asian allies, the nuclear-tipped
missiles of the “East Wind” series.
Ironically, the same missile defense was opposed by California Sens.
Boxer and Feinstein.
Zhu should be happy that he will not be alone in America. Zhu and the
PLA have a full year of invitations to military training events inside
the borders of America. In fact, PLA soldiers are in America right now.
PLA special forces will observe U.S. 82nd Airborne exercises at Ft.
Erwin in June. PLA ships will visit California ports. An entire class of
PLAAF cadets will participate in a USAF exercise involving how to use
radar planes and bombers in hostile airspace.
However, military affairs are not the only problems that will be
faced by Zhu during his tour of America. On March 25, 1999, Chinese
President Jiang Zemin scolded Switzerland when his planned military
reception failed to proceed because of human rights protests.
“You have lost a good friend,” he said to Swiss President Ruth
Dreifuss and members of the Swiss government during a session in the
federal capital Bern. Jiang was furious about the demonstrations that
disturbed his arrival at the Bern federal palace. The protests
interrupted his official speech.
Zhu, however, said he expected a “warm reception” from the Clinton
administration. Zhu is seeking an agreement on the terms for China’s
admission to the World Trade Organization.
Zhu would like Republicans and Democrats in Capitol Hill to forget
enough about espionage and national security to give the PRC a
sweetheart of economic deals. The PRC membership in the WTO will drive
up the U.S. trade imbalance with the output from slave labor camps of
PLA-driven enterprises. The cash profits from this imbalance supports
the princelings in their imperial style and provides the PLA with new
weapons of war.
Both Clinton and Zhu would like you to forget about the August 1994
meeting with million-dollar DNC donor Bernard Schwartz and Lt. General
Shen. Both Clinton and Zhu would rather carry out their plans in secret,
behind closed door, negotiations.
President Clinton did not want you to see the documents on the Loral
meetings and the White House bios on the Communist leadership. Zhu would
like you to forget about General Ding and his many successful missions
against the greedy Clinton administration.
In 1994, General Ding proposed new ideas of information warfare with
an ancient twist. Ding preached war based on the ideals of Sun Tzu, a
mysterious warrior general who wrote a singular book called “The Art of
War” over 2,000 years ago. According to Sun Tzu:
- “Among officials of the opposing regime there are the greedy
favorites. There are those who seek to take advantage of a collapse to
extend their own wealth and power, and there are those who always act
with deceit and duplicity. They can be secretly approached and bribed so
as to find out conditions in their country and discover any plans
against you; they can also be used to create rifts and disharmony.”
In 1994, Ding and Zhu proved the ancient warrior Sun Tzu to be
correct — there are officials who will act with deceit and duplicity.
Some people can be secretly approached and bribed. Ding and Zhu,
however, selected an easy target to prove their point, our President
William Jefferson Clinton.
