Spectacular report from Forbes Magazine source on the 40,000 internet police in China: several new software designers have bested and defeated the goons. One called “Tor” constructs an underground railway of virtual tunnels that makes it exhausting and expensive to follow a user in China who dials out to the free world. Another called “Psiphon” creates a proxy system (if I understand correctly) that is closed to the outside but open to members of a family both inside and outside China.
Critical news is that Falun Gang is most active and skilled on the internet, recruiting Chinese Communist Party members who reject the Party online once they learn the facts of the brutality of their masters toward the spiritually hungry and long-suffering Falun Gong members. To renounce the Party is sensational heresy in China. The leading province for renouncing Chinese Communist members is Heilungjiang, on the Russian border, where a recent chemical factory fire caused a poisoning of the Songhua River: importantly, the local Party members are enraged that Beijing permitted the province leadership to lie about the spill.
Darkest moment is to learn tonight that Korean and Chinese thugs broke in on and abused a Falun Gong Chinese exile in the state of Georgia, USA, in the last few days: one attacker spoke Mandarin. The only thing stolen was the Falun Gong Chinese exile’s computer with information about his contacts inside China and in the diasapora. I repeat: the suspicion is that this is the work of Chinese agents acting inside the United States. Congress is holding hearings within the next news cycle: perhaps the Georgia victim will testify, perhaps the story will begin to grow.
Emphasize that Chinese thugs are operating in the United States to crush the Falun Gong inside Georgia.
Mention that the putative Commies in Beijing might be too weak and stupid to resist the wrath and freedom fighting of the internet 110 millions in China.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
