China's Deadly Utopia

William J Murray is the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition
William J. Murray, the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition along with several congressmen and Senators spoke at an event on Capitol Hill highlighting the persecution of the Falun Gong and other religious minorities in China. Many speakers dealt with the repressive nature of the Chinese Communist Party, but Murray dealt with the core problem of central planning that has been the sources of repression and misery for humanity since the beginning of the 20th Century. His remarks, “China: The Great Utopia” have since been requested by numerous news outlets and have already been televised worldwide. His remarks follow below:
As an introduction to his second chapter in The Road to Serfdom, Friedrich Hayek used a quote by Friedrich Holderlin to sum up collectivism: “What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.”

There are those who see our greatest challenge as the conflict between communist ideology and the free market place or between fascism and democracy, but these are but aspects of the one conflict that humanity faces: reality versus utopianism. During the 20th Century, utopian dreams, unfortunately, became reality in the persons of Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot, Adoph Hitler, and Moa Tse Tung. The result was the “state of hell” referred to by Holderlin. Governments seeking utopia on earth killed tens of millions of human beings in seventy some years of wars, gulags, starvation and mass killings.

While the utopia of Adolf Hitler’s “Thousand- Year Reich” ended in military defeat, and the Soviet “Workers’ Paradise” ended in humiliation for Russia, the dream of a centrally planned utopia lives on in China under the Chinese Communist Party. As in other centrally planned dictatorships, freedom is a casualty in China. Central planning of any kind requires silencing of critics and a control of the press and of speech to insure the continuation of “the plan.” For the level of control needed in China even the worship of God must be tightly directed. If not, “the plan” could perhaps be undermined, even destroyed by critical voices.

In China today there is only one political party, the party that is implementing “the plan” for the lives of the Chinese people. Unable to survive using the pure collectivist model of Karl Marx, the Communist Party has “evolved” to a National Socialism model similar to that of Adolph Hitler, using highly controlled free enterprise sectors to produce the tax base to continue its control.

There is no greater threat to that control than unregulated human faith, the faith represented by the Christian underground churches and the practitioners of Falun Gong. The Chinese Communist Party has used every kind of pressure against the Falun Gong including arrests, rapes, and murders and even forced abortions on Falun Gong women held in captivity. Utopianism requires a grand plan: A Germany without Jews, a Russia without the rich, a Cambodia without the educated, a Caliphate without Christians  —  or a China without Falun Gong or House Church  critics of the Communist Party’s “plan” for the Chinese people.

20th Century utopianism gave the world enough death and destruction to last humanity for 10,000 years. “The Plan” the Chinese Communist Party has for China will fail; it is inevitable. The day of that collapse will mark a new freedom for the repressed. It is the world’s responsibility to give the message to the Chinese communists that “the plan’ is an illusion and that freedom is inevitable regardless of their repression of their own people.

Campaign Update - July, 2011

Big Journalism commentator Kevin Martin believes that the liberal media has a definite strategy figured out in pushing for Jon Huntsman to stay in the race to win the GOP nomination for President of the United States.

The strategy, notes Martin, is to push for Huntsman (an unpalatable candidate for conservatives) so that conservatives will either stay home or vote for a third party candidate. This effort will ensure an Obama re-election.

The mainstream media, says Martin, “will try to portray him as a Reaganesque figure. Unlike Reagan, Huntsman has evolving views on important social issues such as civil unions, man-made global warming, cap and trade and abortion rights that can appeal to voters across the board in the 21 Century. We will be inundated with puff pieces and push polls on his business experience and ability to work with our largest foreign debt holder China on issues of jobs and trade since he was Obama’s pick as Ambassador to China up until recently, which alone earns he has the experience to bring us out of the Great Recession.”

Martin concludes: “Conservatives must remain fully aware that the mainstream media and its pundits will encourage Democrats to crossover and try to ensure that Huntsman wins several open primary states in the early going to make him the perceived GOP front runner. Now with that said, conservatives must remain focused on the fact that our very nation is at stake and we must not allow the hi-jinks of the Main Stream Media and the Democrats to suppress or split our vote in 2012 with the unpalatable Jon Huntsman.”
RINO Huntsman is not only benefitting from the liberal media’s support of him, but he also has the support of his billionaire father who is working behind the scenes for him. Jon Huntsman, Sr. is a self-made billionaire, whose company invented the clamshell containers used by McDonald’s Big Macs.

GAYS LIKE HUNTSMAN AS WELL - I was just a little stunned when someone sent me a link to a story in Q Salt Lake. The Q stands for queer and it is a gay newspaper in Salt Lake City which has semi-endorsed Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman. Rather than editorialize I will quote directly from the gay site, “While there are no official endorsements from any caucuses or groups within the Republican Party yet, the Utah Log Cabin Republicans (ULCR) worked with Huntsman when he was governor, and are ready and willing to work continue that relationship,”

Melvin Nimer, the president of ULCR, said. “Huntsman was the first governor of Utah to open up the governor’s mansion to the LGBT community,” Nimer said. “They [the Huntsman campaign team] have reached out to get some help from us and some people within the group are working with him.” Having read this glowing endorsement of Huntsman in the official “queer” site, needless to say GING-PAC will not be supporting Jon Huntsman for president. 

Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is in second place as choice for President of the United States in 2012 in virtually every poll, just weeks after she announced her bid for the presidency. In a recent nationwide Rasmussen poll Bachmann was at 19% of likely GOP voters,  while Romney was at 33%. However, Romney has been running for the office for years and has many millions of dollars for advertising, whereas Bachmann had officially been in the race just days when those numbers came out. In addition Bachmann is in a dead-heat with Romney in Iowa at 22% to his 23%.  Bachmann has twice the percentage as the number three candidate, Herman Cain.

To firm up her social conservative base, Bachmann recently signed a marriage pledge that includes a statement that she will not allow sharia law to advance in the United States. A native of Iowa, she will be hard to beat there, and Romney may skip that state and concentrate on New Hampshire. GING-PAC has made no formal endorsements in the presidential race. However, GINGPAC has always endorsed and supported Michele Bachmann in her races for the House.


Todd Akin for Senate
GING-PAC has supported Todd Akin since he first ran for Congress in Missouri. He is a godly man who has served as a Sunday school teacher for decades. His family has followed him in service to this nation. Akin was a commissioned officer in the Army. Two of his sons are in the military and a third is at the Naval Academy.  On several occasions during radio and TV interviews he has used the motto of this organization, saying that “government is not God.”
In discussing NBC “editing”  the words “under God” out of a story on the Pledge of Allegiance, Akin noted: “Well, I think NBC has a long record of being very liberal and at the heart of liberalism really is a hatred for God and a belief that government should replace God. And so they’ve had a long history of not being at all favorable toward many of things that have been such a blessing to our country. These powerful words have liberals enraged.”

According to Akin, “This is a systematic effort to try to separate our faith and God, which is a source in our belief in individual liberties, from our country. And when you do that you tear the heart out of our country.”

Rep. Akin’s Communications Director Steve Taylor told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Akin was discussing the basic differences between conservatives and liberals on where rights come from. Liberals think rights come from government; conservatives believe rights come from God. The differences in beliefs, says Taylor, are the “defining principles of two political ideologies.”

Congressman Akin wrote the forward for my book, The Pledge: One Nation Under God which details the history of the Pledge of Allegiance. That book is still available at a reduced price at:

GING-PAC has endorsed Todd Akin for the Senate seat now held by radical liberal and pro-abortion Claire McCaskill.

When you help GING-PAC elect men and women to Congress such as Todd Akin or Michele Bachmann, you are helping to steer America in the right direction. With your help, GING-PAC can make a difference in special elections as they occur. PLEASE DONATE NOW!
