John Holdren, President Obama’s science “czar,” has apparently been collaborating with the Chinese with U.S. technology—even though Congress specifically prohibited that activity in a bill signed by his boss in April of this year, Barack Obama!
This entire escapade has a stench of genuine TREASON! Judging by the White House reaction, Dr. Holdren was acting under the approval and protection of Barack Obama.
The White House claims they have the constitutional authority to do this!
This is incomprehensible! Barack Obama is stonewalling a charge of possible “treason” against his science czar, John Holdren, making him equally culpable in this crime!
This is a very, very serious charge. The science czar just dismisses the allegations!
U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) last week in a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, came against the science “czar.”
The committee was listening to testimony about China’s espionage in the United States and “the violation of the law by the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy.”
Obama’s Office of Science and Technology Policy Director (Dr. John Holdren) is aiding and abetting China’s Space program by providing for them U.S. technology. This is reminiscent of when President Bill Clinton allowed the giving away of our space technology to China over a decade ago. As a direct result, China improved their ability to launch and attack with long-range missiles and rockets!
Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) sternly admonished: “The United States should not cooperate with the People’s Liberation Army to help develop China’s space program.”
By giving U.S. technology to China, Mr. Holdren is guilty of possible TREASON. That’s why there needs to be an immediate Congressional investigation! Fax now!
The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) violated Section 1340 of the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011, by participating in the U.S.-China Dialogue on Innovation Policy (Innovation Dialogue) and the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED), held in Washington, D.C., in May 2011.
Section 1340 prohibits OSTP from engaging in bilateral activities with the government of the People’s Republic of China or Chinese-owned companies unless specifically authorized. Because OSTP was prohibited from using appropriated funds to participate in the Innovation Dialogue and the S&ED, OSTP violated the Antideficiency Act.
Yet the White House released a precise and very liable statement:
“OSTP’s (Office of Science and Technology Policy) activities in bilateral diplomacy with China on…issues fall under the president’s exclusive constitutional authority to conduct foreign diplomacy and thus cannot be precluded by Section 1340(a). In reliance on this advice, OSTP continued to engage in these activities.”
This crime isn’t just about a science czar being a borderline traitor. This is about the constitutional authority of the President of the United States. The above statement made Barack Obama just as treasonous! In fact, by not responding properly and forcefully, it indicates that President Obama allowed this technology to be given away to China! He is criminally liable!
Congressman Wolf called on the Government Accountability Office to investigate, and that office determined the “plain meaning of Section 1340 is clear. As a consequence of using its appropriations in violation of Section 1340, OSTP violated the Antideficiency Act….Accordingly; OSTP should report the violation as required by the act.”
Less than one month after the Section 1340 enactment, Rep. Wolf learned that Dr. Holdren and OSTP had defied the provision!
Wolf went on to say: “Even more troubling is that he (John Holdren) withheld information about his intention to do so during his appearance before the House Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations subcommittee when we discussed, among other things, the implementation of Section 1340, and Dr. Holdren’s participation in the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, from May 6-10.”
Withholding information from Congress also has criminal ramifications!!
Wolf said he had asked Attorney General Eric Holder to make Holdren accountable for the misbehavior, but Wolf’s office said there had been no response. NO SURPRISE THERE!
That’s precisely why your faxes are needed to contact Members of Congress to begin a Congressional investigation to have these very serious charges come to light—whether or not the President or the Attorney General want to cooperate!
The bottom line: Barack Obama’s Office of Science and Technology Policy Director is aiding and abetting China’s Space program by providing them U.S. technology—against our own laws—and no one is doing anything about it.
BUT YOU CAN! Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) is leading the charge to get some real answers. Here are more of his charges against Holdren:
“The United States should not cooperate with the People’s Liberation Army to help develop China’s space Program. I have been very troubled by this administration’s apparent eagerness to work with China on its space program and willingness to share other sensitive technologies. ”
“I want to be clear: the United States has no business cooperating with the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to help develop its space program. We also should be wary of any agreements that involve the transfer of technology or sensitive information to Chinese institutions or companies, many of which are controlled by the government and the PLA.”
“Space is the ultimate ‘high ground’ that has provided the United States with countless security and economic advantages over the last 40 years. As the victor of the Cold War ‘space race’ with the Soviet Union, the U.S. has held an enormous advantage in space technology, defense capabilities, and advanced sciences – generating entirely new sectors of our economy and creating thousands of private sector jobs.”
“…I am equally concerned to learn that Dr. John Holdren, head of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), had spent 21 days in China on three separate trips in one year – more than any other country. Very little information about these cooperative agreements with China was being provided to Congress and the American people!”
IN DIRECT VIOLATION OF OBAMA’S NEWLY-ENACTED LAWS—Dr. Holdren shared technology with a country that we are not allowed by law to do. Yet the denials come. And the White House response showed that Obama allowed this technology to go to the Chinese! Yes, it is criminal!; and the Attorney General has not answered the Congressman’s concerns!
Will you help us to retain our national security by faxing Members of Congress to urge them to investigate via an official congressional investigation to get to the bottom of why Dr. Holdren (and his boss!) has not been charged with treason?
On a more ideological note, Rep. Wolf charged:
“The Chinese government brutally represses its own people. It persecutes people of faith. It censors the Internet. It maintains labor camps. The Chinese government actively engages in cyber-espionage. It steals state secrets. It aligns itself with countries directly at odds with U.S. interests. It supports genocidal governments and buttresses rogue regimes. There’s a legal term, ‘willful blindness,’ that aptly described our dealings to date with China. Faced with these painful truths, blindness is no longer an option!”
Yet ANOTHER Obama administration official continues to DEFY CONGRESS!
The White House has already admitted to this wrong! Again, Barack Obama is “acting on his own” without any thought of Congress or the American people. This goes to show you that as a “fiat dictator,” Mr. Obama can do whatever he pleases—just like his latest fiasco of signing an agreement with Australia for a 2,500-Marine contingency, to supposedly hold back any Chinese advances! China has 2,285,000 active duty troops. Not a good match for 2,500 Marines! No one was notified. No one gave any approvals. Obama just acted on his own!
Someone must be held accountable for these inappropriate actions that verge on treason!
Please help Congress to get the whole truth of this important, national security matter by faxing today!
Don’t let another piece of technology get into unfriendly hands!
None dare call it treason, but we will!

P.S. This scientific knowledge given to unfriendly governments (China) against the law of the land gives credence to the term “traitor.” Let Congress know today!
