Letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein

One of the most puzzling things I have seen from the Democrat party in the past three years has been its unremitting support for China and the Chinese Communist Party that runs it.

Democrats like Diane Feinstein have short memories when it comes to China. I don’t. I was in Beijing on June 4, 1989 when I witnessed the CCP unleash the Chinese army on the students and demonstrators in Tiananmen Square.

By the time the army was finished thousands of students and demonstrators had been slaughtered in the square and in the surrounding neighborhoods.

More recently, the world has witnessed China’s deplorable behavior toward religious organizations. It is in the process of striking the final blow to religious liberty with new “Administrative Measures for Religious Groups” that went into effect in February.

“In practice, your religion no longer matters, if you are Buddhist, or Taoist, or Muslim or Christian,” a Chinese Catholic priest told reporters recently. “The only religion allowed is faith in the Chinese Communist Party.”

In the western region of Xinjiang, the home of the majority-Muslim Uighur ethnic minority, authorities have installed a massive police state and is estimated to have imprisoned up to 1.5 million residents.

Most recently, the world has learned of China’s internecine behavior regarding the Wuhan Coronavirus. Instead of warning the world about the virus, the CCP coldly and calculatedly shut off the rest of China from Wuhan but allowed hundreds of thousands of Chinese to travel from Wuhan to the United States, Europe and other Asian nations. In effect, the CCP was saying “we won’t be the only ones who suffer from the virus.”

We may never know if the CCP created and released this virus purposely as a form of biological warfare or if it was released by accident. It is clear the virus was made in a Wuhan laboratory.

So when I saw this letter that Maura Moynihan sent to Senator Dianne Feinstein regarding her vigorous defense of Communist China in the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, I had to share it with my followers. Maura Moynihan is the daughter of Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Democrat of New York.

Here is that letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein. I wonder if she will answer it.

Dear Senator Feinstein,

I have known you since 1992 when you won your first term as Democratic Senator from California. You served with my late father Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Democrat of New York.

I am writing to express my shock, nay, horror, when I listened to your vigorous defense of Communist China in the Senate Judiciary Committee last week when you stated; “We hold China as a potential trading partner, as a country that has pulled tens of millions of people out of poverty in a short period of time and as a country growing into a respectable nation. I deeply believe that.

You made no mention of the death and destruction wrought by the deadly virus from Wuhan which the Chinese authorities deliberately covered up and allowed to spread across the USA. To date the virus has killed more than 150,000 American citizens and caused unspeakable economic and psychological carnage, which Chinese Communist officials have celebrated in official statements, stating “Go ahead and Die USA!” Do you deeply believe that this is the conduct of a “respectable nation?”

China’s rise has lifted millions out of poverty, but its growth has come at a fearsome price for the Chinese people. You stated that you “have been to China and I know China well.” So, you know the Chinese Communist Party’s grotesque record of crimes against humanity, because it is well known.

You know that the Chinese government holds millions of its citizens in massive concentration camps where they are subject to slave labor, torture, slaughter and deprivation that would make a Nazi proud. You know that the Chinese Communists imprison and murder their citizens for the crime of “counterrevolutionary thought” the sentence imposed on the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Liu Xiaobo, a poet, and author, who died in a Chinese jail in 2017. You know that China operates a multibillion-dollar organ transplant industry, where organs are carved from the bodies of living political prisoners. Does this support your assertion that China is a “respectable nation?

In 1979 when you served as Mayor of San Francisco you made Shanghai your Sister City, and you are known to be a close friend of Jiang Zemin, who in 1999 created his Gestapo – the PLAC – to persecute people of faith and critics the Chinese Communist Party. In 2014 Jiang was found guilty of genocide in Tibet in the Spanish High Court.

Your husband Richard Blum is the director of the American Himalayan Foundation so you know that China has just started a border war with India from Occupied Tibet and that the Chinese Communist Party – CCP- will torture a child if they are caught with a photograph of the exiled Dalai Lama. You also know that Communist China has built thousands of hydro dams in Tibet, thereby stealing and weaponizing Asia’s water supply. And of course, you know how the CCP violated its pledges to Hong Kong and now rules the city with CCP law, not English Common Law. Is this how you define the conduct of a “respectable nation?

You supported President Clinton’s delinking of trade and human rights in 1994, stating that holding China to international standards of conduct was “unproductive” and that such measure would “inflame Beijing’s insecurities.

Are you more concerned about preserving financial support from Big Tech companies in Silicon Valley, which openly collaborate with the CCP to further enslave their people? Official records show that you are the 2nd wealthiest member of the Senate, with a net worth of $94 million. Is your vigorous defense of the CCP due to your husband Richard Blum’s firm Newbridge Capital earning millions by investing US pension funds and more in China?

As Democratic Senator from California, you have sworn to defend the United States from “all enemies foreign and domestic.” For decades, the CCP has declared the United States “Enemy #1” in official statements, laying out their plans to “destroy the US from within.” This is happening in every sphere of our society, in plain sight.

Have the standards of conduct and human dignity fallen so low that the Senior Democratic Senator from California, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, hails Communist China as a “respectable nation” with such brazen confidence, as our country has been brought to its knees by the CCP Virus, assured that not only will nobody notice, but worse, nobody will care?

Senator Feinstein, which side are you on?

I await your timely response.
