Congratulations to the Obama Department of Justice for being named to the Hall of Shame!

Unjustified indictments of Szuhsiung “Allen” Ho and Ching Ning Guey
Used 1946 Atomic Energy Act designed to discourage the spread of nuclear weapons and applied it to an export licensing matter involving commercial reactor technology used around the world – activity that had nothing to do with bombmaking.

1/6/17 Washington Post: “U.S. used Cold War-era statute to prosecute Taiwanese American nuclear engineer”
By Ellen Nakashima and Steven Mufson
A Taiwanese American nuclear engineer pleaded guilty Friday to one count of conspiring to produce “special nuclear material,” in this case plutonium, outside the United States without a license from the secretary of energy.

  1. This is on the big national level. Even at the local level it’s hard for Asian Americans to get their footing for political positions: http://www.bensonhurstbean.com/2016/06/colton-slams-imposter-billy-thai-misleading-leaflets/#.V2ScY_krLIU

  2. Is this a Democrat Party ‘thing’ or is it just that these most regrettable things happen to be happening on Obama’s watch.

    I can argue that if Obama was really for racial unity, he’d have his people be more careful in taking these actions.

    Would a Republican administration do any better?

    The Democrats appear to be ‘flubbing it’….in football, if your team can’t move the ball forward ten yards in four plays, the ball goes over to the other team, and they get a crack at trying to move it forward ten yards in four plays. I may be belittling the injustice of the situation; my apologies for doing so. The point is, let’s give the other team (a.k.a. the Republicans) a chance with the ball and see if they ‘flub it’.

  3. Dear Mr. Kwiatkowski,

    I am unaware of Republicans indicting Asian Americans and then having to dismiss the cases as being without merit. As you noticed from reading the rest of the Hall of Shame, some Republicans have taken other unfair governmental actions against Asian Americans.

  4. Note: for all of his embarrassing (especially to Republicans and right-leaning libertarians like me) talk about Hispanics and Muslims, I don’t recall that Donald Trump has had much to say, good or bad, about Asian-Americans. He has denounced what he asserts are ‘bad trade deals’, but that’s about all I’ve heard. Maybe I’ve missed it, in all of the furor over his ‘asking the Russians to find Hillary’s 30,000 missing e-mails’, or his assertion that ‘President Obama started Isis (he may have enabled it to become what it is today, but it wasn’t his idea) or even going back to his spat with Megyn Kelly.

    Anyone with knowledge along these lines, comment here and enlighten my ignorance…

  5. On the day of his inauguration, I wonder what you folks at Asian-American politics expect from a Trump presidency?

  6. Looking at Don Joe’s post of July 24 of last year, methinks maybe I ought to read those ‘Hall of Shame’ entries and see what Republicans have done.

    Be aware that my own political leanings are libertarian…I tend to side with the Republicans on fiscal issues and either side with the Democrats or remain neutral on social issues. For instance, I try to ‘look the other way’ on gay marriage.

  7. Most Asian Americans vote Democrat now so they expect the worse from Trump: hostile immigration policies, repealing Obamacare and fraying welfare programs. Republican Asian Americans may hope for less discrimination against Asian American applicants to universities, less onerous regulation of businesses, and more support for Taiwan.
