What better way to spread communism than sending 100,000 students to China to study it “up close and personal?”. That is the goal of our administration.
Do you want your kids studying in China? Well, maybe, they’d better learn Mandarin, China will be running the U.S. pretty soon, once they have all our money and debt.
Amazing. I wonder what the TBP members with kids think about this. My kids won’t become communists, that much I can assure you, regardless of our government.
Obama Wants 100,000 American Students to Study in Communist China
25 Jan 2013 by Susan Jones
(CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday will celebrate the launch of a newly rebranded organization called the “100,000 Strong Foundation,” which aims to have 100,000 American students studying in China by 2014.
Thursday’s event will “underscore the importance of study abroad in China and the benefits to our strategic relationship with China as well as the personal benefits individuals receive through these exciting experiences,” the news release said.
Until now, the 100,000 Strong Initiative — announced by President Obama on his trip to China in 2009 — has operated inside the State Department. Thursday’s 1 p.m. ceremony marks its transition to a non-profit, nongovernmental organization operating independently.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton officially launched the Obama initiative in May 2010 in Beijing. “China has established dozens of Confucius Institutes across the United States that offer Chinese language instruction and cultural programs to help Americans better understand China,” Clinton said at the time. “We would like to see similar American language and culture centers on the campuses of Chinese universities.”
According to State Department statistics, in the 2010/11 academic year, 14,596 U.S. students were studying in China, which was number five on the list of study-abroad destinations, behind the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain and France.

Obama to send 100K American Students as Loan Security
By Igor Toutellalai, American Media Collective
The US State Department announced on Thursday that 100,000 college students would be send to China by 2014 as security for US debt obligations to the People’s Republic of China. Under the ‘100,000 Strong Foundation,’ announce by President Barack Obama during his 2009 visit to China and sponsored by the US State Department, US college students would be sent to study in China to assure Chinese officials that, despite uncertainties regarding the US budget and frequent political tussles on the debt ceiling, the debts to China would continue to be paid.
Chinese officials have recently expressed concern of the growing US debt, now expected to top $18 trillion by the end of the year. With frequent opposition coming from Republicans in the House of Representatives to further debt increases, and no sign that President Obama is willing to compromise US domestic growth with budgetary cuts, China is concerned that a second recession is in the works.
Anonymous sources within the White House said that Obama worked out a deal in 2009 with Chinese President Hu Jintao that 100,000 US students would be transported to China and kept as a type of ‘loan security’ until debts were paid. Should the US go into default due to Republican obstructionism, the Chinese could keep the students for labor in their dwindling labor pool as the effects of the Chinese ‘One-Child’ policy has cut into the number of available workers.
“The Chinese liked the idea of having strong Americans ready to work in their factories if the debt obligations of the US aren’t met,” said Charles Lee, a Hong Kong financial analyst specializing in Chinese debt collections strategies. “They are also pretty certain, from observing Americans for decades, that US citizens will work hard to make sure all the kids come home.”
Lee theorized that the Chinese may release students individually to parents willing to pay the part of the debts, though their overall hope is that the Republicans will respond to American concerns for the welfare and safe return of the students by continuing to permit the White House to accrue further debt and thus keep the economy strong.
However, Lee added that not everyone in the Chinese government is in favor of the arrangement. Reports have surfaced that show the Chinese are worried that if the US defaults, the Chinese may have difficulties getting American students to work.
“Chinese workers have a very strong work ethic, whereas American young people are generally seen as overly-pampered,” Lee said. “Some (Chinese) officials think that they will have to invest a lot in re-education programs for the American students before they will be capable of working at all.”
During the coming year, the ‘100,000 Strong Foundation’ will begin examining students capable of studying in China, and also rate them on their abilities to carry out manual labor tasks. If students meet the intellectual and physical standards agreed to by the US and China, they will be transported to locations throughout the People’s Republic and assigned to various universities and colleges.
For their part, Lee said the Chinese are building special student dormitories with all the latest wireless technology to run all the cameras and microphones needed to track student security. They will be kept in conditions closely approximating a US college dorm.
“At least American parents will know that someone will be keeping a close eye on their children while they are away at college,” Lee added.
