Days of drama preceded the agreement between the United States and China in the case of Chen Guangcheng, but the negotiations ultimately reflected a maturing relationship, officials said.I have no idea when this photograph was taken of Chen Guangcheng. I hope he is healing and I pray for him, his whole family and country.
Use the closed captioning button (CC), on your YouTube Video Viewer to “read” this US Censored discussion between China’s Chen Guangcheng and this U.S. Republican Congressman Rep. Chris Smith. Seems Obama censors the news, just like China does. God bless Obama. Seems to me, that God allowed Chen Guangcheng, to upstage China and Obama’s President’s trade agreement. Isn’t that like God, to weigh in on the right side, so subtly?
State Department spokeswoman, Victoria Nuland, says New York University (NYU) has offered a Fellowship to Study in the USA, for China’s Chen Guangcheng. NYU has offered Chen, to be able to come to the United States, on a Visa for him and his immediate family. The Visa is only for a few months.
My Two Cents Worth
Obviously, China and the US Diplomats get to “save face” however, does this really help Chen Guangcheng? Does anyone get it, that he has probably got PTSD, and needs to adjust? That this is just heavy cosmetics, on a terrible human rights issue. If his future is still not stable, how is he going to settle down? He needs to be able to feel at home here, and feel safe here, and so does his family. I hope this works out for him. It remains to be seen. I will continue to pray for Chen, his family and for China.
(Because Republican, US Rep Chris Smith and Chen Guangcheng are both Pro-life.)
If China calls itself “The People’s Republic of China” … Why aren’t their people happy or free?
Chen Guangcheng China’s Blind Pro-Life Advocate
under Political Oppression from Chinese Government.
“LifeNews has received a copy of a transcript of a phone call that took place between forced abrotion opponent Chen Guangcheng Wednesday night and his attorney Teng Biao. During the call, Teng is seen advising Chen to get his family out of China because of threats and dangers to their lives.”
“Chen doesn’t speak much during the call — likely because he is surrounded in his hospital room by Chinese officials and guards who could overhear him talk more about his plans for the future.”
Teng (seen below right), one of the most prominent law scholars and professors in China, also speaks with Chen’s wife, Yuan Weijing, and both are currently in Chen’s room at the hospital in Beijing as the world watches to see his fate. ChinaAid, a U.S.-based organization that has worked closely with Chen and his supporter sin China, provided the transcript.”
Chen Guangcheng called up lawyer Teng Biao from Beijing Chaoyang Hospital
May, 2, 2012, 19:55:12
Teng: Guangcheng! How are you! After so many years of not being able to see you, I’m thrilled to hear your voice. It’s wonderful you’re free now! We all care for you, and we’re also very concerned about you. Are you at a hospital?
Chen: Yes, I’m at a hospital.
Teng: What concerns us the most is the next step you’re going to take. What are you planning to do next?… As your friend, I want you to carefully consider your decision. Most citizens concerned about you want you to leave China and take your family with you to the US.
Teng: I want to give you greetings from many people who care about you deeply, including professor Cohen from the US and professor Ai Hua from Hongkong. They’ve done a lot of things for you over the years.
Chen: Thank you. I appreciate the concern of these people. I know about professor Cohen and professor Ai Hua.
Teng: How’s your health? Do you have other injuries besides those on your legs?
Chen: Thanks, everyone for your concern. The majority of my injuries are superficial. I got a foot fracture. Now it’s in a cast.
Teng: Your health was in poor condition before. You had diarrhea. Have you received a full-body checkup?
Chen: I’ll get it tomorrow.
Teng: I heard that Weijing left your village in the company of officials from Shandong. Was it true? How is your mother? Is she still under house arrest?
Chen: Yes. The authorities of Shandong might have received an order from the central government asking them to take Yuan Weiing to Beijing. My mom is still at my hometown. I can’t find out how she is doing. I called her but couldn’t get through. Some new obstacles have been set up around my house. (Note: This sentence was not very intelligible.)
Teng: Have you heard about Chen Kegui and your older brother? Chen Kegui is in serious danger. Chen Hua and his father were both arrested.
Chen: I’ve heard about that.
Teng: He is in a very dangerous situation. If he got caught, the result would be unimaginable. You must tell the US Embassy what happened to Chen Kegui, Chen Hua and your family. As a lawyer, I know what Kegui did was out of self-defense. But if you tell about their situation, they may end up suffering horrible reprisals shifted onto them.
Chen: I already told.
Teng: One more thing, do you know what the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson say today? About yourcase?
Chen: I don’t.
Teng: His attitude was very stern and there was no flavor of friendly negotiation between China and the US in his speech. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Liu Weimin said, “Chen Guangcheng, a Chinese citizen, was taken by the U.S. side to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing via abnormal means, and the Chinese side is strongly dissatisfied with the move. What the U.S. side has done has interfered in the domestic affairs of China, and the Chinese side will never accept it. The U.S. Embassy in Beijing has the obligation to observe relevant international laws and Chinese laws, and it should not do anything irrelevant to its function. China demands that the United States thoroughly investigate the event, hold relevant people accountable and ensure that such an event does not happen again.” His attitude was rude and unreasonable… If they give you a promise that they will not retaliate on you in the future, you should never count on their word. Such a promise will be effective for only one or two weeks. If you continue to stay in China, you’re putting yourself in great danger.
Teng: Have you met with others?
Chen: No, I saw no one this afternoon. They might have all been blocked outside.
Teng: A lot of netizens went to the hospital to see you. They must have been blocked outside. If I were in Beijing, I would have been blocked too. I will find a way to meet with you. I heard you were planning on teaching or studying at a school. Which school?
Chen: I plan on studying. I haven’t decided which school to go to.
Teng: Guangchen, you should not make such a decision. You’ll be in great danger if you stay in China. I’m serious.
Teng: There’s word that some guard was arrested, the guard who helped you escape. Was it true?
Chen: There was no guard assisting me. I escaped by myself.
Teng: Have you heard anything about Pearl (Zhengzhu)?
Chen: No. I only heard that she disappeared.
Teng: Yes, she disappeared. GuoYushan was released, but he’s still in danger. Reprisals are coming for sure. In 1989, they also made an oath promising that they would not retaliate, but look how many people were killed and arrested? You know that Yu Jie, Jiang Tianyong, Fan Yafeng, Li Fangping and others, plus me, we are all people with some influence in the world like you, but we have all experienced torture in their hands. If you choose to stay in China this time, they may not do anything against you for a while, but there would be horrible reprisals. It would not be as lenient as four years in prison or two and half years under house arrest. Their methods of torture are awful and unbearable. These many years of persecution against you, it was not merely inflicted by Shandong government. You were kidnapped in Beijing multiple times. One time your mom and Kerui were at downstairs of the building I lived in, it was Beijing police who pulled me away, pushed me to the ground and took your mom and Kerui away by force. And the time when you were kidnapped at downstairs of the building Jiang Tianyong lived in, Beijing government was involved in that action. The whole government hates you. The requests you made to Premier Wen Jiabao in the video are great. Wen is a pretty good person. But even if he tries to protect you with all his strength, he may not succeed.
Chen: Ok. I understand.

“Activist Chen Guangcheng told AFP on Thursday he did not feel safe in China despite assurances made under a deal to remove him from the US Embassy, pleading for American help to take him abroad.”
“”I want to go overseas. I want the US to help me and my family leave China,” Chen said by phone from a Beijing hospital where he is being treated for a foot injury suffered during a daring escape from house arrest on April 22.”
“”I don’t feel safe here. I want to leave.”"
He has accused those officials of persistent physical abuses and threats against himself and his family.
“God helped me escape. God helped me,” he said.
Rights Groups demanded that the United States stand by Chen.
“The Chinese government must honour its commitments to Chen, and the US and other governments must continue to insist at the highest levels that it does so,” Amnesty International said, accusing Beijing of acting in “bad faith”.
“The coming days are critical, but the well-being of Chen, his family and supporters demands long-term scrutiny and international pressure.”

" The “door of faith” (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace. To enter through that door is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime." Benedict XVI
