revealed "between the lines":
Matsui links China trade, party support High-tech leaders told: Don't bail out on Democrats
By Herbert A. Sample
Bee Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON -- Sacramento Rep. Robert Matsui, a strong proponent of permanent normal trade relations with China, is threatening to reverse course if the high-tech industry abandons Democratic candidates in this fall's elections.
Some leading figures in the industry were angered when House Democratic leader Richard Gephardt of Missouri chose last week to unveil his opposition to the controversial trade legislation, though Gephardt has promised not to lobby other lawmakers.
But Matsui, who is leading the effort among House Democrats to pass the trade pact, argued that the timing of Gephardt's announcement actually was helpful to the measure's supporters.
That some industry officials would be infuriated by Gephardt "shows the naivete of the industry generally," Matsui said.
Matsui's comments highlighted the political undercurrents swirling around the proposal to grant permanent normalized trade relations with China in place of the annual congressional and administration review that is now required.
Labor unions, important financial supporters of Democrats generally, strongly oppose the legislation. The high-tech industry, a tremendous source of political contributions, strongly backs the pact.
House Democrats, who are vying to win enough seats in November to take control of the House, are counting on high-tech firms and the business community in general to aid the five or six dozen House Democrats who are expected to buck the unions and vote for the trade measure.
Meanwhile, a large majority of House Republicans also back the trade measure
and would like to gain more financial backers in Silicon Valley -- at the expense of Democrats.
This was not Matsui's first run-in with business allies over issues related to the China trade pact. On two recent occasions, the congressman harshly criticized the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for endorsing GOP candidates over incumbent House Democrats who support the measure.
"Just get out of it and leave us alone," Matsui said two weeks ago, calling the chamber a "bloated organization that just perpetuates itself." The Chamber has since endorsed some Democrats, reducing Matsui's ire, his spokeswoman said.
Gephardt's opposition to the trade pact was not surprising. But its timing apparently incensed some high-tech leaders, said Jeff Modisett, a vice president of the Technology Network, a coalition of 200 Silicon Valley chief executive officers.
"I think what happened is there is some problem with the timing of his announcement, and some people are coming to a more harsh conclusion that others are not coming to," said Modisett, who handles Democratic issues for the network.
But Matsui noted that Gephardt held his press conference in St. Louis, while Congress was in recess and -- intentionally or not -- when it would compete for press coverage with the anniversaries of the Oklahoma City bombing and the Columbine High School shootings.
"From my perspective, the timing of it was probably tactically the best time in terms of the proponents" of the trade legislation, Matsui said.
Modisett agreed, saying, "There is a great deal of merit to Representative Matsui's argument."
Matsui added that he would tolerate no more "gamesmanship on this issue." If the high-tech industry "threatens Gephardt and the Democrats in terms of sanctions for a position they knew of for some time, then I may have to reconsider my position," he said.
Michael Maibach, vice president of government affairs for Intel Corp., said his firm's position had not changed because of Gephardt's announcement.
"My company and most of the industry support people based on their individual voting record," Maibach said. "Those who have the support of trade will get our support."
Now, consider what the above article reveals about how Matsui's votes in Congress -- that are important to the security and future of our country -- depend not on their merits but on campaign contributions and political support. If that's not corruption, then what is?
Matsui is opposed in the November 7, 2000, election by Republican Ken Payne.

ARE YOU ONE WHO WILL BE DEEMED BY THE FED/STATE TEAM TO BE "MENTALLY ILL" BECAUSE OF YOUR BELIEFS? ONLY A MORALLY BANKRUPT, TOTALLY CORRUPT, BESERK, TOTALITARIAN ARISTOCRACY COULD DEVISE THESE PLANS!
After you read the post below, click on the following links and read how scary this whole 'MIND CONTROL' thing is, RIGHT now:
This Senate bill does indeed aspire to the vision of a population totally altered by the scientific methods of "mental hygiene." Even the Bill's opening language so declares its vision for the future, interestingly enough. Only the Bill is now ready for consideration at some very near future date. The vision was originally Lavrenti Beria's, Stalin's Police Chief, and professor of psychopolitics. His speech about wiping a Christian population's slate clean was delivered to a group of hand-picked American students who were sent to Moscow for indoctrination in the 1930's.

Subject: S.B. 2639: TO MENTALLY HEAL ALMOST EVERYONE UNDER LAW
Attached you will find S. 2639 which envisions a huge number of people (especially a great emphasis on numerous kids, minorities, the incarcerated, and Indian tribes) under the scrutiny of psychiatry and with that comes the little mind altering gifts psychiatrists adore giving: psychotropic drugs. Much has been discussed about the state religion of psychiatry. The state religion like most religions in general, aspires to convert all to its world view. The state religion, however, is allowed no separation from the state--in fact, its role is considered so holy, this State religion is about to become paramount almost, among institutions. It sentences you to worship at its humanist alter.
This state religion, especially if this Bill passes, will work to coerce your conversion to it, even most forcefully. With the newly "trained" decision of a police officer, or an emergency responder, or a fire fighter, a paramedic, a teacher and other school personnel, many newly trained community members, your primary care physician, you will be ordered to have your slate cleaned of your background traditions, values, beliefs (under the guise of mental healing) and with this clean slate, (tabula rasa) the State might just allow you to go on living your life with some relative bit of privacy or if your situation merits more special considerations in this Bill, you will qualify for Mental Health Court, where a team of neo Babylonian priest-like trained psyches, will decide your mind altered fate. Note carefully the huge emphasis on "integrating child welfare with mental health." The Congress finds, as the Bill reads, that "Presently, nearly 7,500,000 children and adolescents, or 12 percent of such population, suffer from 1 or more types of mental disorders."
Furthermore, that "in industrialized countries, mental illness constitutes 4 of the 10 leading causes of disability for individuals who are 5 years of age or older." Folks, this is a deadly serious matter. If it is possible that there are in fact that many mentally sick people in the US, mental health as it is so practiced within the strict confines of secular psychiatry, will not, has not, healed anyone. It has made well people psychotic, and it will make disturbed people ambulatory lunatics or quite dead. See first what one other individual has to say about the Bill and its connections. I have deleted his naughty expletives for your pleasure. Then please see the excerpts of the Bill I have copied or read entire Bill in attachment. ac

Subject: [CIA-DRUGS] Stop the implementation of Federal mental health
courts - KILL Domenici-Kennedy Bill
Date: Mon, 2 Oct 2000 04:26:55 -0400
A gang of criminals pushing drugs, who are already complicit in the CONSPIRACY to inflict Ritalin on a generation of children, and thus serving their masters, the pharmaceutical DRUGGING companies. http://www.nami.org/ And here's another bunch of sick .... who are also behind it: http://www.mhamerica.org/ (all in the name of the biblical god, of course)
Freakin' hypocrites aren't even able to live by their .... "commandments"
Do unto others,
Love thy neighbor, etc.
How do these dizzgusting excuses for human beings look at themselves in the mirror every day?!
The Ritalin Conspiracy must be OUT-ed with a vengeance. These psycho -chemical-NAZIS must be stopped.
You may or may not be aware of the Domenici-Kennedy Bill now before Congress. It is the most dangerous piece of legislation involving civil rights curtailment in many years.
It calls for the establishment of FEDERAL mental health courts. Any individual can be placed before on the sayso of a doctor, etc. Like the ones at the state level they will be rubber stamps. There is no such thing as a false positive with mental illness.
Domenici's wife (spelling?) was on the board of NAMI, a front company for the drug companies.
This bill also calls for the establishment of mental health centers in OUR schools (no choice here).
Buried within the bill will be a centralized database of anyone (potentially) who ever sought any sort of mental health treatment. The repercussions include infringements on the right to keep and bear arms.
We have seen this already. Gulf War vets with GWI were all given psych diagnoses. As a consequence the health records of close to 90,000 vets were turned over for inclusion in the FBI database. None of these vets, nor anyone living in their homes, has the right to posess a firearm. (By the way I bet the FBI is already going through the MBI database, MediCaid, etc.)
There is NO need for legislation like this. Not only will it affect the targeted individual it will affect that individual's family.
This has already happened in Canada. Some individuals have ended up in the database by accident or fraud. The government refuses to make corrections.
Of course these individuals will probably be forced into a lifetime of drug treatment.
We saw a similar legislation in the 1950's at the height of the cold war.
It was defeated then, but we have had ten years of the media aggressively falsely associating mental illness with violence.
