Excerpt: A weird thing happened right after the Nov. 3 2020 election, nothing. The nation was braced for chaos. Liberal groups had vowed to take to the streets, planning hundreds of protests across the country. Right-wing militias were girding for battle. As President Trump refused to concede, the response was not mass action but silence. A second odd thing happened amid Trump's attempts to reverse the result: corporate America turned on him. Hundreds of major business leaders, many of whom had backed Trump's candidacy and supported his policies, called on him to concede. To the President, something felt amiss. "It was all very, very strange," Trump said on Dec. 2. "Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint the winner, even while many key states were still being counted." Trump was right. There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain inspired by the summer's massive, destructive racial-justice protests in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump's alleged assault on democracy. The scenario the shadow campaigners were desperate to stop was not a Trump victory. It was an election so calamitous that no result could be discerned at all, a failure of the central act of democratic self-governance that has been a hallmark of America since its founding.
28Apr2022: America's Navy Is Failing! Triple Its Budget Immediately or "Lose a War and Surrender Your Freedom(s) to the Axis of Evil: China, Russia, Korea and Iran." PDF Excerpt: China just put two more naval cruisers into service. The two Type 055s, bigger than destroyers, already conducted night-firing exercises. Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy plans to retire all its cruisers without replacement until 2028.The Navy has no effective defense against hypersonic missiles and none of its own. Neither does it have supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles (ASCMs). A lack of layered security options puts American ships at risk of rapid defeat in a war at sea. China can destroy our aircraft carriers, and their accompanying cruisers and destroyers, with its nuclear-capable hypersonic arsenal. China has 355 ships and submarines, the U.S. Navy has just 298. America's fleet will shrink to 280 ships by 2027, while China's fleet will grow to 436 ships. America's naval shipbuilding industry has insufficient facilities for design, supply lines, shipbuilding, and maintenance, causing our multi-billion dollar fighting ships to retire faster than we can build new ones. Beijing believes that 'the best defense is a good offense', and wants to make the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) a global blue water navy. It is rapidly transitioning from a focus on "near seas" to "far seas," and will have at least five carrier strike groups-each including a carrier, cruisers, destroyers, and submarines by 2035. Currently military officials in the Pentagon are trying to convince Congress to retire all 22 American cruisers in the next 10 years to be replaced by Arleigh Burkes. The Pentagon has failed to take years of repeated advice from U.S. Navy fleet commanders to improve maintenance, extend the life of existing ships, and develop and deploy supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles to protect them from adversaries. The failure of U.S. defense officials to prepare the U.S. Navy for the "China Naval Threat" is tantamount to sending the fleet to certain destruction and defeat in high-intensity combat operations that are not too far distant on the horizon. The fundamental issue is that the USN leadership over the past two decades has stubbornly rejected investing in supersonic, long-range ASCMs as a primary offensive weapon system. Instead, the establishment has sought to rely solely on aircraft carriers and fast attack submarines launching 'forward from the sea' attacks over land, instead of building a fleet that can fight and win a war-at-sea." American deterrence has failed despite our nuclear weapons and pride in our high-technology defenses. What Russia is doing to Ukraine, China will eventually do to the United States. A massive surprise attack against the U.S. military in general, and the Navy in particular, must be planned for and deterred at a more granular level than simple hand waving about nuclear deterrence. America needs to be able to fight and win a conventional war against Russia and China, which will deter them and ultimately keep them from escalating toward nuclear war. America must be prepared for Beijing's continued incrementalism that will result in nuclear-capable naval ships off America's coasts, Alaska, and Hawaii. Few democracies will have the stomach to oppose the complete and global dominance of the CCP. Now is the time to stop the CCP. Now or never. Time is not on our side. Fixing the problem requires diminishing China's economy, which is about 10 times that of Russia's, to stop its ability to continue its arms buildup. And we need to increase our defenses by doubling or tripling our efforts, which would require doubling or tripling defense budgets. It is imperative that funding continues towards the Defense of Space and the protection of U.S.-NATO Space Based Assets as China seeks "Tianxia", on and off-world planetary domination and control.
28Apr2022: Chinese Regime Seeks to Control Global EV Supply Chain, Leaving U.S. Vulnerable. PDF Excerpt: Competition between the United States and China in the realms of electric and autonomous vehicles could determine the future control of global supply chains in an unprecedented way. Former Director of National Intelligence Adm. Dennis Blair noted that both EVs and AVs were singled out in Beijing's "Made in China 2025" industrial plan as part of its top 10 high-tech areas to seize leadership in. This, he said, demonstrated a clear effort to displace the United States as the lead controller of global supply chains and the international industrial ecosystem. "The countries that really take the lead in developing cutting edge innovative technologies in the auto sector are going to control the supply chains, set the standards, set the running rules, and really own global markets. We are competing with the Chinese government, not the Chinese auto manufacturers."
27Apr2022: Miranda Devine: Are Democrats And Joe Biden Up To Their Old Election Tricks? PDF Over the last 16 tortuous months of the Biden presidency, it's become clear that the Democrats are running on empty. They are not even trying to reset their electorally poisonous policies. Politically this means they are heading for annihilation at the midterms. Yet they appear curiously relaxed as if winning elections is no longer a priority. "They (Democrats) Might Not Be Any Good At Governing, But When It Comes To Seizing Power By Foul Means Or Fair, They Are World-Class."Now pesky evidence is starting to emerge of systematic schemes to subvert the electoral process which must not be allowed to happen again if we are to restore faith in elections. Research by election integrity group True The Vote to expose suspicious ballot harvesting. Using cellphone geotracking and surveillance video, it shows a network of "Mules" in battleground states busily collecting ballots from get-out-the-vote NGOs/Nonprofits and stuffing them, a few at a time, into multiple drop boxes in the dead of night. "The extent of the operation is jaw-dropping." True the Vote bought three trillion geo-location signals from cellphones that were near drop boxes and also near election nonprofits, from Oct. 1, 2020, through to the election on November 3. In Georgia the end date covered the Jan. 6, 2021, run-off. Then they went searching for "Mules," operatives who picked up ballots from election NGOs. True the Vote, chose the term "Mule" because "it felt a lot like a cartel, it felt like trafficking. This is in its essence ballot trafficking. You have the collectors. You have the stash houses, which are the nonprofits. And then you have the mules that are doing the drops." Data analysts set a threshold for each mule to visit at least 10 drop boxes within a defined area and at least five visits to one or more NGOs. The DNC's con works this way: A car pulls up at a drop box after midnight. A man gets out, looks around surreptitiously, approaches the box, stuffs in a handful of ballots and hightails it out of there. Then he goes to the next box, again and again. The data pattern is unmistakable, as Dinesh D'Souza shows a spider web of routes taken by various mules between NGOs and drop boxes. For each of the 2,000 mules the average number of drop box visits was 38, with an average five ballots deposited per visit. That's 380,000 suspect votes. D'Souza breaks down the numbers to see if they would have changed the outcome of the election: In Georgia, where 250 mules averaged 24 drop box visits each, we get 30,000 suspect votes, more than enough to overcome Biden's 12,000 vote advantage. D'Souza moves Georgia's 16 electoral votes into the Trump column. In Arizona, 200 mules averaging 20 drop box visits makes 20,000 suspect votes, giving another 11 hypothetical electoral votes to Trump. In Philadelphia alone, 1,100 mules averaged 50 drop box visits giving us 275,000 suspect votes which would flip the Pennsylvania result to Trump, giving him another 20 electoral votes. "Shockingly, even this narrow way of looking at just our 2,000 mules in these swing states gives Trump the win with 279 electoral votes to Biden's 259," says D'Souza. "If we must have drop boxes at election time, they need to be secure and under 24/7 surveillance." Housing Migrants for Votes: D'Souza says "They are simply importing and pampering a new class of voters because the old ones got wise."

27Apr2022: 'US to Bolster Security Ties with Papua New Guinea Amid Concerns Over Beijing-Solomons Security Deal' and the 'Rapidly Approaching U.S.-NATO Cold War with China'. PDF As the 'United States and NATO rapidly march towards a Cold War with China' the U.S. will seek to increase security ties with Pacific nation Papua New Guinea (PNG) Australia's northern neighbor amid the fallout of a freshly minted agreement between Beijing and the Solomon Islands that will see Chinese troops and weapons stationed in the region. PNG Prime Minister James Marape stated that "there is a desire on both sides to ensure we take concrete steps to expand our security cooperation." Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare 'knowingly lied' by giving assurances that the security deal with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would only be for domestic security needs and that there would be no military base(s). Neighboring Pacific nations remain concerned about the implications of the "Security Cooperation between the Solomon Islands and the People's Republic of China (PRC)." Daniel Kritenbrink, the U.S. assistant secretary of state of East Asian and Pacific Affairs said: "We do know that China is seeking to establish a more robust overseas logistics and basing infrastructure that would allow the People's Liberation Army to project and sustain military power at greater distances." Experts have warned that a fully implemented security deal between the Solomon Islands and Beijing would lead to similar geopolitical tensions in the region akin to the South China Sea. The Solomons was the site of extensive fighting during World War II in the Battle of Guadalcanal because of its critical position and influence over vital sea lanes.
26Apr2022: Left-Wing Group Demands Apple Preemptively Nuke Truth Social. PDF A left-wing government watchdog group with a dubious history is demanding Apple engage in mass preemptive censorship with the removal of a free-speech-branded alternative to Twitter from its app store. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) sent a four-page letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook on Wednesday urging the American tech executive to nuke former President Donald Trump's new platform, Truth Social, from its digital marketplace despite no violations of company guidelines. "The events of January 6, 2021 highlighted not only democracy's vulnerabilities, but also the risks associated with the current ecosystem of online speech," wrote CREW President Noah Bookbinder in the letter. "Every company that now enters into business with Trump must recognize that it is essentially endorsing this dangerous and anti-democratic conduct." With not a single post from the entire platform cited or a single company policy violated to justify the app's removal, Bookbinder argued Truth Social's association with Trump was enough reason alone to ban the product from the Apple marketplace. "Unchecked threats to reliable information imperil our civic institutions, social stability, and democratic norms," Bookbinder wrote, implying that inadequate censorship of dissident ideas is a threat to democracy. Bookbinder even highlighted the corporate collusion to take down Parler, another free-speech alternative to Twitter, in the immediate aftermath of the Capitol riot to rationalize a preemptive strike at Truth Social.
26Apr2022: Subpoenas Formally Issued For Evidence In Georgia Ballot Trafficking Case. PDF Subpoenas ask election integrity group True the Vote and its researchers to turn over identities of ballot harvesters, John Doe whistleblower and suspected funding arms for 2020 ballot trafficking operation. In a major escalation, Georgia election regulators have issued four subpoenas demanding the identity of a John Doe whistleblower and other evidence concerning an alleged ballot trafficking operation in the 2020 election, Just the News has learned. Delivered late last week to the election integrity watchdog True the Vote, its founder Catherine Engelbrecht and its researchers, the subpoenas seek evidence that backs up the group's complaint last November alleging that as many as 242 people illegally gathered third- party ballots during the battleground state's November 2020 election and subsequent U.S. Senate races, according to documents obtained by Just the News under a state open records request. The evidence being sought by the State Elections Board and the Secretary of State's office includes the names, identities and phone records of people True the Vote believes were involved in trafficking ballots. That includes the identity of a man the group said admitted he participated in the ballot trafficking scheme and was paid $10 for each
ballot he collected and delivered to ballot drop boxes. The subpoena, signed by acting State Elections Board chairman Matt Mashburn, also appears to target any information the group and its researcher have about the funding streams for the alleged ballot harvesting scheme. It seeks the identities of the "network of non-governmental organizations that worked together to facilitate a ballot trafficking scheme in Georgia" as well as any information about 10 "hubs" the group alleged coordinated the ballot trafficking. Ballot harvesting, the act of gathering other voter's ballots, is expressly prohibited in Georgia and many other key election states. On Monday, a new complaint was filed in Green Bay, Wisc., alleging such harvesting occurred in that state's primary election earlier this month. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger originally disclosed the existence of the Georgia harvesting investigation in a January interview with Just the News. In 2019, he led an effort to ensure state law expressly prohibited harvesting, and he told Just the News he believes the probe could lead to criminal charges and the identity of the funding streams for the alleged operation.
26Apr2022: Fox News: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis "Bans ZuckerBucks" Signs Bill Creating New Election Police Unit. PDF DeSantis has made voting legislation a focus this year. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill Monday to create a police force dedicated to cracking down on voter fraud and other election crimes. The new law, S.B. 524, creates an "Office of Election Crimes and Security" to investigate allegations of voter fraud. It increases the penalty for ballot harvesting from a first-degree misdemeanor to a third-degree felony, punishable by up to five years in prison. It also requires the Florida Department of State to strengthen ID requirements for mail-in ballots, requires voter rolls to be checked every year for ineligible voters and prevents election supervisors from receiving so-called "Zuckerbucks."
26Apr2022: Judge Finds Trump in Contempt in Legal Fight with New York Attorney General. PDF A New York judge on April 25 found former President Donald Trump in contempt for not proving he responded to a subpoena. New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron ordered Trump to pay a fine of $10,000 per day. "Mr. Trump, I know you take your business seriously, and I take mine seriously," Engoron said before issuing the ruling from the bench in a Manhattan courtroom, following a hearing. "After conducting a diligent search and review, respondent's counsel determined that respondent was not in possession of any documents responsive to the subpoena and that all potentially responsive documents were in the possession, custody or control of the Trump Organization," Alina Habba, one of the lawyers, said in a recent filing. "The contempt motion is inappropriate and misleading," Habba added in court, insisting that Trump complied and recounted traveling to Florida to ask Trump whether he had any documents in his possession that would be responsive to the subpoena. "We respectfully disagree with the court's decision. All documents responsive to the subpoena were produced to the attorney general months ago. The only issue raised by the attorney general at today's hearing was with an affidavit submitted which copied the form mandated by the attorney general. This does not even come close to meeting the standard on a motion for contempt and, thus, we intend to appeal," Habbas stated that Trump has said "James, who ran for office vowing to investigate the Republican if she won, is selectively prosecuting him and his family."
26Apr2022: Democrats have Zilch to Offer so they're Smearing and Censoring the Opposition. PDF White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain offered an interesting insight into Democrats' 2022 midterm election strategy on Sunday, musing about French President Emmanuel Macron's ability to win reelection despite a 36 percent approval rating, implying a similar possibility for U.S. President Joe Biden. Instead of trying to turn Biden's sinking approval ratings around by ditching failed policies, Democrats seem content with their underwater numbers so long as they can drive Republicans' popularity even lower with smears and censorship. The Biden administration has helped drive its own approval ratings into the ground with crisis after self-induced crisis. Democrat-led Covid lockdowns and ballooning federal spending have caused the worst inflationary crisis in decades, coupled with energy prices that were on the rise even before Russia's invasion of Ukraine thanks to Biden's war on oil and gas. Destabilization in Ukraine and a botched withdrawal from Afghanistan may top the list of Biden's most deadly mess-ups, but they're far from the only line items. Biden's radical legislative agenda has crashed and burned, leaving him with nothing to offer voters but a list of failures. Biden could choose to learn from these mistakes and respond by securing the border, unhampering American oil production, respecting parents and free speech, and protecting minors from predatory sex propaganda. But instead, the White House is tacitly admitting it doesn't care that Americans don't like its agenda. In a fair system, a president with approval ratings that are underwater by double digits would be worried about his next election, and probably worried enough to be making some big changes. But Biden has done nothing but double down. That signals just how confident his people are in their ability to collude with the censorship regime to smear their opponents or keep their arguments from reaching voters entirely. Censorship is a powerful political tool, and it's part of why the laptop class is so panicked at the idea that someone with slightly more respect for free speech than they now owns the Twittersphere. All of Biden's disasters point to a Republican victory in the midterms this fall, but Democrats' unwillingness to let nosedives in the polls budge their cultural battles should be a chilling reminder to Republicans that Democrats haven't played by the rules for years. The collaborators in the Biden White House, in the legacy media, and in Big Tech are so confident in their backroom rigging that they don't think they need to listen to what American voters think.
26Apr2022: Biden Is Openly Pursuing A Policy Of Escalation In Ukraine. PDF Excerpt: What are we to make of a comment Monday from Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin that the Biden administration's goal in Ukraine is "to see Russia weakened to the degree that it can't do the kinds of things that it has done in invading Ukraine"? One obvious conclusion we can draw from Austin's comment is that the Biden administration has now committed openly to a policy of escalation in Ukraine. The White House intends to keep the war in Ukraine alive, with the stated goal of weakening Moscow by continuing to pour new and more advanced weaponry into the war-ravaged country (as the Biden Administration intends to fight Russia down to the last Ukrainian). After resisting pressure early in the conflict to supply Ukraine with advanced weapons systems, the Biden administration has changed course. It is now preparing to send heavy artillery, helicopters, armored personnel carriers, antiaircraft radar systems, advanced attack drones and other weapons. Austin told members of the press that the Defense Department won't just send weapons, but "will expand military training for Ukrainian service members in the region on certain weapons systems being provided." Delivering all this aid is of course itself an escalation of U.S. and NATO involvement in the war. If you're wondering what is the significance of this deepening U.S. involvement in the Russo-Ukrainian war, or how it might lead to a direct military confrontation between the United States and Russia, consider that the U.S. secretaries of defense and state might have just narrowly missed being struck by a Russian missile as they traveled to and from Kyiv by rail. If the United States continues down this path: sending Ukraine increasingly advanced weapons systems, training Ukrainian troops, underwriting Ukraine's defense, it will lead, as it has already led, to ever-increasing U.S. and NATO involvement in the war. Moscow will never allow for the kind of Ukrainian victory that Blinken and the White House are working towards. To the extent U.S. policymakers are relying on, say, historical comparisons to the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan as a guide for the creation of U.S. policy in Ukraine, then we're in trouble. Put another way, this is not a peripheral conflict for Russia. As far as the Kremlin is concerned, the fate of Ukraine is inextricably tied to Russia's core strategic national interests.
26Apr2022: Israel is Mistaken about China. PDF Israel is America's longtime friend and ally. We have been through a lot together. And Israel is a rare democracy in the Middle East. So when Israel's central bank recently made plans to downgrade the U.S. dollar in its reserves and introduce China's yuan, it really hurt.
Friends should not do this to each other. Countries that believe in protecting democracy should not undermine the international monetary foundation of liberty. Israel is by no means alone among America's friends to start turning their backs on the dollar and toward the yuan, also known as the renminbi. In addition to the usual suspects, Britain, Australia, Japan, Germany, Canada, South Korea, Taiwan, and Switzerland have all collaborated with China's regime in its attempts to internationalize the yuan. The United States is also responsible, not least for failing to make a bigger stink about the yuan's increased utilization globally. Other hard currencies the euro, Japan's yen, and the British pound do not pose a threat. These are all from democracies. But the regime in Beijing is the greatest threat to democracy and peace globally. Just look at the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) support for Russian President Vladimir Putin and his bloody wars. None of us should want that future. Enabling the CCP by introducing its currency into Israel's reserves, or any country's reserves, furthers its goal of displacing all other currencies globally. Beijing seeks global hegemony, and the yuan serves as its vehicle, one country at a time.
26Apr2022: Predicting When Communist China Will Make Its Move on Taiwan. PDF The window for deterring a communist Chinese invasion of Taiwan is rapidly closing, and concrete actions are needed now. The ongoing Russo-Ukrainian has sparked a great deal of speculation about Taiwan's future. Without question, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership and the People's Liberation Army (PLA) are drawing various conclusions about the world's response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and perhaps how the lessons learned might accelerate Beijing's long-cherished goal to "fully integrate" Taiwan into mainland China. It is only a matter of time until the Beijing regime seeks to force its national security law on the Taiwanese. The legal and administrative processes now being used to absorb Hong Kong under that law will be augmented by the use of military force, if necessary, in the case of Taiwan. The aphorism that "might makes right" is probably consistent with CCP leader Xi Jinping's strategic thinking regarding Taiwan: people who have power can do what they want because no one can stop them. And Xi has overseen a shocking buildup of Chinese military capabilities over the last decade. The Chinese military buildup has been accompanied by an increasingly assertive posture vis-a-vis Taiwan and the United States, and various countries in East and South Asia. New Chinese ships and aircraft that enter service are regularly deployed in the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea to showcase their capabilities and intimidate Taiwan and other countries in the region. What might be on Xi's checklist for deciding when to "absorb Taiwan"? Here are a few items that indeed made the list: 1. Cross-channel invasion capability (sufficient amphibious lift capacity, logistics support, and combined arms training): almost there. 2. Overwhelming military superiority in the region: almost there. 3. Insufficient Taiwanese (and allied) military deterrence capabilities: achieved at present. 4. Disarray among potential Taiwanese allies: achieved, but cooperation is building. 5. A weak, feckless, and compromised U.S. leadership: achieved.
26Apr2022: Beijing's Indo-Pacific Arc of Power Crystallizes. PDF Beijing now has in place a basic architecture of power projection targets throughout Southeast Asia, from Burma in the West to Indonesia, Timor-Leste, as well as Papua New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific. They each represent decades of work for the Chinese Communist Party of China (CCP) and are now coming into a degree of clarity. Beijing's campaign in Timor-Leste will bookend China's current major campaign to gain a foothold in the Solomon Islands, 2,350 miles to Timor-Leste's east. Significantly, the CCP's strategic outreach programs in Burma (also known as Myanmar), Indonesia, East Timor, Papua New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands represent a cohesive umbrella of resource-rich countries immediately to Australia's north. Beijing has also developed discreet but positive relations with Bangladesh and Thailand. Timor-Leste, strategically placed within the Southeast Asian sea lanes, is too significant a target for the CCP to ignore. Lately, it has not been possible for China to avoid alarming Australia and the United States in the Solomons. And now Timor-Leste is likely to further awaken Washington. The CCP has built a comprehensive arc of influence down into the Indo-Pacific. It is pushing the line of engagement between China and the alliance further south toward Australia.
26Apr2022: The Man Plotting to Overthrow the CCP. PDF If China's economic growth takes a nosedive, then Xi Jinping could find himself forcibly removed from office, according to Michael Shoebridge, a well-respected security expert. In an interesting interview with the Daily Mail, Shoebridge, director of defense, strategy, and national security at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, said Xi's safety is only guaranteed if the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) delivers economic prosperity. There is no shortage of people, both inside China and outside, who would love to see Xi and the CCP overthrown. One of those people is a man by the name of Guo Wengui. Who is Guo Wengui? To some, he is a courageous whistleblower, a dissident who wants to open our eyes to the dangers posed by the CCP. It will take more than one man to topple the CCP. For the CCP to be defeated, the people of China must rise up. If the CCP continues down this path of "zero-COVID" lunacy lockdowns, maybe they will. Starvation drives people to extremes, making them do things unimaginable to the well-fed. Right now, in Shanghai, many people are starving. A city of 26 million people finds itself in complete lockdown. People are losing their minds. The suffering is immense. Starvation "will push and pull human psychology in unusual directions it is one of the few things that can overcome fear of the authorities." Hungry mouths create hateful minds. "A government that fails to feed the people has lost all legitimacy. The fact that the CCP is prepared to let its people starve, all in the hope of "curbing" the latest COVID outbreak, paints the most disturbing of pictures. "Zero-COVID" policies make zero sense; the CCP may or may not know this, but the people of China, especially those living in Shanghai, certainly do. Shutting down a city with three times the population of New York City will have a profound impact on the country, both psychologically and economically. "The recent slump in consumer spending and rising unemployment suggest much tougher months ahead" for the CCP and the people of China. The world's most populous country is on the brink of disaster and failure.
26Apr2022: China's Secret Navy in the South China Sea. PDF Few regions are more strategically important to China than the South China Sea (SCS). Beijing has increasingly treated the SCS as a "Chinese lake," subject to its "indisputable sovereignty." Beijing's competing territorial claims within other countries bordering on the SCS have led China to be militarily engaged and active in this area for many years. This has often led to tensions, if not outright clashes. The issue of Chinese hegemony in the South China Sea has been less and less about economics, oil and gas reserves or fishing rights and more about control and sovereignty. The South China Sea is, quite simply, a key defensive zone for Beijing. Accordingly, China has particularly increased its military presence in the region through expanded patrols by the PLA Navy (PLAN). In addition, there has been a dramatic military expansion on the Hainan and Woody islands in the western SCS. Woody Island has witnessed the construction of a 2,700 meter runway that can accommodate most Chinese fighter jets, an improved harbor, and the deployment of long-range HQ-9B surface-to-air missiles (SAMs). Beijing has also been engaged in a massive effort to assemble and subsequently militarize a constellation of artificial islands in the Spratlys, in the eastern part of the South China Sea. Chinese fishing boats are sent out to collect intelligence, show the flag, and promote sovereignty claims. Moreover, they are not above creating minor clashes with other ships. They provide Chinese naval and paramilitary forces, particularly the Chinese Coast Guard, with a pretext (protecting Chinese "civilians") to intervene and thereby bolster China's military presence in the South China Seas.
26Apr2022: FBI Chief Says Espionage Threat Posed By China 'Unprecedented in History'. PDF FBI Director Christopher Wray said that the current scale of espionage and cybersecurity threats from China were "unprecedented in history." "The biggest threat we face as a country from a counterintelligence perspective is from the People's Republic of China and especially the Chinese Communist Party." "They are targeting our innovation, our trade secrets, our intellectual property, on a scale that's unprecedented in history," he added, noting that China's hacking program is larger "than that of every other major nation combined." "They have stolen more of Americans' personal and corporate data than every nation combined," Wray also said, adding that China's targets span nearly every sector of the economy. "We are now moving at a pace where we're opening a new China counterintelligence investigation about every 12 hours," the FBI director said. "There's well north of 2,000 of these investigations. All 56 of our field offices are engaged on it, and I can assure that it's not because our agents don't have enough else to do. It's a measure of how significant the threat is."
26Apr2022: Defending Taiwan: Lessons From the Russia-Ukraine War. PDF Excerpt: The Russian-Ukrainian war has triggered far-ranging changes to international relations. Among them are the emerging remilitarization of Germany, a renewed sense of purpose within NATO, the potential expansion of the organization to include Sweden and Finland, and a rethinking of Europe's energy procurement policy. It has also triggered a profound reevaluation of how the United States and its allies should respond to both Beijing's threats to invade Taiwan or an actual invasion of the island nation. What lessons does the Ukrainian war offer for how the United States and its allies should support Taiwan? A potential conflict between China and Taiwan would be very different from the current war between Russia and Ukraine. An invasion of Taiwan would have a significant naval component both to provide transport and cover for amphibious landings and to isolate the island and forestall resupply. Beijing would rely on a combination of land-based missiles, airpower, and sea power to create an area-denial zone around Taiwan, making it very dangerous for the U.S. and allied naval forces to operate around the island. Ultimately, however, this will be a naval contest. The ability of China's People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) to successfully deliver an invading army will primarily determine the outcome of the conflict. The Taiwanese navy has around 100 ships. Most of these ships consist of frigates and fast-attack missile boats. Taiwan also has four submarines, only three of which are operational. A Chinese amphibious invasion, Taiwan would primarily rely on a combination of land-based and ship-based missiles to keep the Chinese navy at bay. While these ships and missiles could do significant damage to an invading or blockading force, Taiwan would be unable to defend against any invading force. The Taiwanese navy requires more anti-ship weapons from ships, shore, and aircraft to repel an invasion. Without acquiring these weapons systems, any such defensive operation would require the intervention of U.S. and allied naval forces.
26Apr2022: China Plans to Raid the Arctic. PDF One week after Russia invaded Ukraine, seven countries: Canada, the United States, Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland, announced that they were withdrawing from the Arctic Council until further notice. At present, the only remaining member is Russia. With the likes of the United States and Canada turning their backs on the council, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has spotted an opening. Xi Jinping and his colleagues appear to be extremely interested in exploring the Arctic's inhospitable region. The question is why? The Arctic has a pool of resources like rare-earth minerals that are "ready to be taken." Rare earth metals like neodymium, praseodymium, terbium, and dysprosium "are key to the world's electric-vehicle and renewable-energy revolutions, underpinning battery technology and wind turbines among other things." Also "the Northern sea route from the Barents Sea to the Bering Strait is of great importance to the Chinese," as it offers access to new "fishing grounds." Domestically, China's fish stocks are at risk of collapse. As a symbol of abundance in Chinese culture, fish is a key ingredient in many of the country's most popular dishes. The Arctic region offers Beijing the opportunity to avert a fish-centered crisis. If Russia is defeated in Ukraine, then China's Arctic ambitions may be delayed indefinitely. However, if Russia emerges victorious, China will likely be given the keys to the Arctic, allowing its contractors to fish and mine with impunity.
26Apr2022: China Sells Western Currency and Oil Assets to Avoid Sanctions Prior to Invading Taiwan. PDF Excerpt: China needs to protect itself from Western sanctions once China invades Taiwan. China is shifting its global asset portfolio in response to sanctions on Russia and is in the process of stabbing the West in the back. Having seen the avalanche of economic pain imposed by the West on Russia from the confiscation of oligarch yachts to the freezing of most of Moscow's $630 billion in foreign currency reserves, Beijing is moving to protect itself, because it knows it's up to no good and could therefore be sanctioned in the future. China realizes that much of this, which is in the world's hardest currencies, the U.S. dollar, euro, Japanese yen, and British pound sterling are vulnerable to freezing if China continues to support Russia in Ukraine or suddenly decides to invades Taiwan. China's dumping of Western currencies is currently adding to inflationary pressures in the West. Beijing knows that its global asset portfolio, including oil fields in the West, could be seized if it follows Moscow's example and does the wrong thing. Rather than protect all these investments by doing the right thing, the "Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is preparing for the imminent invasion of Taiwan and subsequent invasion of U.S. Pacific Military Bases," by liquidating its vulnerable Western assets and rebalancing its portfolio toward countries with which it has more influence, such as in the developing world and among dictatorships. China is selling all of its oil fields in the United States, Canada, and Britain due to the impending threat of sanctions. China's new aversion to Western assets, including currencies and alternatives such as oil fields, could have major ramifications for China's trade with the West. If China no longer wants what America, Europe, and Japan have to offer, then Beijing will reorient away from supplying these regions with manufactured goods, which would accelerate decoupling. But before China decouples from the West and our allies, we should all jointly decouple from Beijing. Let the CCP pay the cost of its support for Russia, human rights abuse, territorial aggression, intellectual property theft, and foisting of COVID-19 on the world, not us. That means taking the economic initiative against the CCP and its global assets. There are plenty of justifications to do so.
26Apr2022: The Chinese Communist Party Has Destroyed the Best of China. PDF Excerpt: The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has taken strict precautions in its preparations to mark its 100th anniversary. Beijing is heavily guarded. The CCP is arresting people going to Beijing and blocking any social media account that might not show enough self-censorship. The CCP might look strong on the outside, but in reality, it is extremely nervous. Despite decades of tight control and brainwashing, the Chinese people are well aware that the communist system is against human nature and will not much longer. Since its takeover of China, the CCP has killed an estimated 80 million Chinese people. During its existence, it has never stopped its campaigns to purge different groups, every time picking a new group to target. Its primary targets have been those who represented the best of the Chinese people and their culture. In the 1950's the CCP took property from landowners, confiscated private businesses from business owners, and killed millions whom they called "capitalists." Many of its victims were the most well educated and the most successful in Chinese society, often those who imparted the best of Chinese culture, handed down to them through a long family history. China has a history of 5,000 years of civilization. For most of that time, China was the envy of surrounding countries. The people were civilized and led stylish lives. Even kings from other countries chose to stay and even die in China. Communism, however, has brought famine, poverty, and an endless war against the Chinese people. In the 1960s during the Cultural Revolution, teenagers were encouraged by communist officials to beat their parents and teachers. In Beijing alone, more than a thousand teachers were beaten to death by their students. The CCP used teenagers to search civilians' homes and destroy antiques, artwork, and traditional objects they found, as well as public artwork, temples, and so on—anything that could remind people of traditional Chinese culture. The Chinese culture was always believed to be divinely inspired. But communist ideology is against humanity and against human nature. Anything that represents traditional culture and principles is an obstacle to enforcing its ideology. When the CCP came to power, it outlawed religion, dismissing it as an "opium of the people." It uses atheism to destroy people's belief in God, taking away people's belief in moral standards. China's forced organ harvesting whereby healthy individuals are killed for their organs to be sold for profit, has been supported and carried out by the military, police, courts, hospitals, and prison system. As a result, the entire country of China has become morally bankrupt. The destruction of Chinese traditions, the damage to the moral standard, and the persecution of people of faith have been the Communist Party's biggest crimes. The CCP has killed more people in China than the number who died in the two world wars combined. Beyond killing, it has made every effort to destroy the spirit, culture, and dignity of the Chinese people. Fully aware that it's the enemy of the people, the Party has always been in an existential crisis knowing that 'one day the Chinese People would revolt and kill their evil CCP overlords'.
26Apr2022: Chinese State Media Exposes True Purpose of 'Zero-COVID': A Battle of Systems and National Power. PDF Xinhua News Agency, the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) official media outlet, said in an article that the CCP demonstrated the advantages of its leadership and the socialist system in fighting the novel coronavirus and accomplished what other countries wanted to achieve but could not. Some Western countries have chosen to "live with the virus," with epidemic controls gradually being lifted and people returning to normal life. The CCP however, vehemently opposes "living with the virus" domestically, and instead implemented a draconian dynamic "zero- COVID" policy and elevated events into a battle of ideology and political system. Whether the government adhered to "dynamic zero-COVID" or chose to "live with the virus" was actually a contest of "system, national strength, governance capacity, and even civilization" between the CCP and Western countries. Beijing believes that a zero-COVID was a decisive battle that would determine the fate of the CCP regime. "The CCP wants to prove its brilliance and greatness by achieving zero-COVID. It will do so at any cost." Chinese society has already paid a huge price for the CCP's insistence on implementing its draconian dynamic zero-COVID policy. In order to reach "zero-COVID," Shanghai continued the lockdown, resulting in a shortage of basic supplies and many Shanghai residents being in a constant state of hunger. The zero-COVID policy has made China's economy more vulnerable. "The CCP has gone to great lengths for zero-COVID. It wants to prove that its socialist system is superior to the Western capitalist system." "It also wants to establish the so-called 'credibility of a great power' and prove its national power. It's actually a deceptive attempt to save the Party."
26Apr2022: US Should Build a 'Great Wall' to Deter Chinese Aggression. PDF Excerpt: The discussion over the threat from communist China is about its technology and initiative. But that is too reactive. The United States and its allies can take concrete measures to deter the Chinese regime and actively stop it in case of war by using available resources and geography to create a "great wall." The challenge is that the Chinese regime is much closer to Taiwan, Japan, and contested territories than the United States. And the United States often needs a great deal of time to build up forces and logistics
in the region before pursuing military operations. This entices Beijing to pursue a short, sharp war. The current thinking is that the danger is not a long war but one that is over before America can use its military might. With the example of the Russian seizure of Crimea in mind, the CCP would essentially dare America to spend the next nine months preparing for war to take it back and assume (with some justification) that American leaders would not have the political will to summon the military strength. American political leaders might face the unenviable choice of doing nothing or escalating to higher levels of violence. The West that can use the geography of the Western Pacific to build its own modern "great wall." Its basic features will deploy along the first island chain to encumber Chinese military movement from the China seas eastward or southward through the narrow seas that pierce the island chain. The first island chain runs from Japan through Taiwan and the Philippines. The central part of that chain and the focus of the new great wall includes Taiwan and the islands immediately to the north and south of them. The first part of this defense would be integrating the existing defenses of allies. Countries like Japan and Taiwan, being right next to an aggressive regime, already field their own defensive weapon systems. Japan considered adding Aegis offshore batteries and possibly counter-strike capability. The latter is significant since (military) strategists believe that any invasion of Taiwan will include a missile barrage against Japan to forestall any possible intervention. The Japanese fleet has trained with the U.S. fleet and can reasonably defend its part of the island chain. The Australian, Philippine, and U.S. forces recently concluded exercises in the South China Sea and the strait between Taiwan and the Philippines. This makes a wall of defense consisting of local missile defense and navies that stretches along the central part of the Chinese coast. While not impervious to attack or being broken by massive amounts of Chinese ships and missiles, this is the first part of the defense that can delay and slow down Chinese forces. U.S. forces, particularly their heavy surface forces, can ply the open waters beyond the island chain, at the outer range of most Chinese missiles, and act as a mobile reserve force. American destroyers, cruisers, and frigates will surge to points where China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) forces attempt to break out. The U.S. forces will seal any breaches in the frontier keeping hostile forces penned within the China seas. The United States is also reorganizing its forces to quickly augment local forces in the event of Chinese aggression. The U.S. Marines are disbanding some units, such as tank battalions, to create small units of about 75 that could be easily inserted into combat zones. This strategy has the benefit of using terrain and mostly existing forces to deter and limit Chinese aggression. The Chinese troops will know they will face a constricted operating environment and strong defenses backed by American power and reinforced with quick reaction Marines. While China does have potent weapon systems, the bungled Russian invasion suggests that strategy matters just as much, if not more than hardware, and the United States should consider a new great wall.
26Apr2022: China Threatens the Breakup of Europe. PDF China's state controlled Global Times mooted the idea under the guise of a friendly warning, after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that Ukrainians are prepared to fight a ten-year war against Russia. Such a war could lead to the breakup of Europe and its control by the United States. "It is exactly due to the continuous flow of economic and military aid from the US and NATO that has prolonged the military conflict, cheering Ukraine up to fight a 10-year war." After a "bleeding decade" of war over Ukraine, "Europe, being entangled in a war, will completely lose its security autonomy and become fully reliant on the U.S. umbrella. It will have to confront a 10-year crisis on energy, food, refugees and inflation. Social turmoil will surface. The [EU] bloc may even split on the issue." Despite Beijing and Moscow's "no limits partnership," meant to deter the United States, China clarified recently that the violence in Ukraine is apparently entirely the fault of our evil capitalist country and its NATO lapdogs. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) thus seeks to divert blame and use threats and scare tactics against Brussels to separate it from Washington. China's "common destiny" envisioned by Beijing will be no walk in the park. At best, it will be totalitarian developmentalism of the sort that creates ghost cities and failed property developers in loan default. At worst, genocide and civil war will emerge on every continent, as the citizens of formerly democratic countries resist the kind of neocolonialism doled out by the CCP. It could be one and then the other. We all need to wake up and mitigate the risk of any of the above. Beijing wants the European Union to cave to Russian demands and pressure Zelenskyy into conceding control of all of Ukraine to Moscow. This would strengthen the credibility of Beijing's threat against Taiwan, and make forced unification of the island democracy more likely, and with less effort.
26Apr2022: China's Top Oil Giant Reportedly Plans to Exit Western Markets in Fear of Sanctions, Returning to Domestic IPOs. PDF Since the Trump administration, the Chinese Communist Party has faced increasing headwinds over its unethical trade practices and human rights abuses. With China's invasion of Taiwan imminent, China is selling its oil fields in the United States, Canada, and Britain due to fear of Western sanctions. Experts say Beijing's over-reliance on U.S. markets and technologies could be fatal in the case of being sanctioned or losing its overseas assets. Western sanctions against Russia struck fear into the CCP, and that Beijing will incur massive technological and economic losses if its overseas assets are confiscated by the United States and other western countries. "The CCP has to rely on the United States [for its technologies and markets] whether it likes to or not. [It cautiously avoids direct conflict with the United States, fearing severe consequences.] On the one hand, it sends mixed signals on the Russia-Ukraine conflict, both withdrawing and providing support to Russia. On the other hand, it strengthens domestic food production [in fear of Western sanctions]." U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken called on China to "choose a [side]" in the Russia-Ukraine war, suggesting Beijing's words and deeds on the issue were ambiguous and inconsistent. "It's about siding with right versus wrong (good vs. evil); it's about siding with the basic principles of the international system or for chaos and conflict."
25Apr2022: GOP News: House GOP Reelection Arm Launches New Initiative to Highlight Candidates' Diversity, Unique Stories. PDF "GOP Plays the DNC's Diversity and Equity Game". National Republican Congressional Committee spotlights Monica De La Cruz in Texas to kick off new campaign. De La Cruz, the Republican nominee in Texas' 15th Congressional District, is the first GOP candidate showcased in a new initiative by the National Republican Congressional Committee. The paid media effort by the House GOP's reelection, arm aims to highlight top party recruits who represent what the NRCC calls "the unique stories and diversity of the Republican Party in communities across the country." "We launched this project to help talented candidates like Monica tell their stories at home and increase their visibility nationwide," NRCC Chairman Rep. Tom Emmer said in a statement. "Republicans have smashed every recruiting record we set last cycle and we are excited for voters to see who Republican candidates are and what they represent." Cruz is making her second straight bid for Congress in a district that stretches from the outskirts of San Antonio south the McAllen along the southern border with Mexico. Texas 15 is one of five districts along the southern border that the NRCC's aiming to flip from blue to red in November's elections as the party tries to win back the House majority it lost in the 2018 midterms. If De La Cruz wins in November, she would be the first Republican to represent the district in over a century. The NRCC says their initiative will feature one candidate per month leading up to the November elections.
25Apr2022: US to 'Respond Accordingly' if Solomon Islands-China Pact Permits Military Base. PDF The United States has warned the Solomon Islands' leadership that it would "respond accordingly" if a military installation on the Pacific Islands nation is allowed under the terms of the Solomon Islands-China security pact. The White House stated Friday that a high-level U.S. delegation has met with the Solomon Islands' leadership in Honiara and raised concerns about the purpose and transparency of the agreement. According to its statement, Solomon Islands' officials have clarified that the security deal was solely for domestic applications, but the U.S. delegation claimed that it posed "potential regional security implications" for Washington and its allies. "If steps are taken to establish a de facto permanent military presence, power-projection capabilities, or a military installation, the delegation noted that the United States would then have significant concerns and respond significantly," it stated. The Solomon Islands China security deal, which was signed earlier this week, triggered alarm in the United States and its allies that Beijing may use the accord to establish its military presence in the region and destabilize the Indo-Pacific. According to a leaked draft of the agreement, Beijing would be able to dispatch police, troops, weapons, and even naval ships with the consent of the Solomons to "protect the safety of Chinese personnel and major projects in the Solomon Islands."
25Apr2022: Russia-Ukraine War Accelerates Collapse of China's Belt and Road Global Strategy. PDF Over the past ten years, China's Communist Party (CCP) has strategically relied on its $4 trillion Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to boost its image and influence with at least 149 countries to date. But success has eluded its efforts, and the BRI strategy may be doomed as a result. China's BRI strategy was first introduced in 2013 by CCP head Xi Jinping. The strategy is in two parts: on land via the Silk Road Economic Belt which runs through Central Asia, Central and Eastern Europe to Western Europe; and on water via the "Maritime Silk Road," which runs through the South China Sea and the Indian Ocean, westward through Southeast Asia to South Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. War-torn Ukraine, at the junction of the Eurasian continent, is an important gateway into Europe from Asia and an important source of energy, food, and military technology for China. China's Economic Daily described how the sanctions against Russia and Belarus were forcing trains to route around these countries as well as Ukraine. As a result, shipments into Europe are being delayed while trains returning to China are often empty. It is unknown how long this disruption will last. "Other European countries, including Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, and Romania, may also reconsider their cooperation with the CCP and be wary of its infiltration." Indonesia became the first country to participate in the CCP's water based "Maritime Silk Road" initiative. Although Indonesia has remained neutral in aligning with other countries, it felt pressured to comply with the CCP's growing influence in Southeast Asia and expansion in the South China Sea. China has spent over $7 billion on the Indonesian rail line and is still pumping money into the venture. But the CCP's mounting problems with the BRI strategy are clearly obvious elsewhere.
23Apr2022: President Donald Trump Speaks at the Save America MAGA Rally in Delaware OH (~94mins)
22Apr2022: How Bill Barr's Silence Impacted the Outcome of a (Presidential) Election. PDF During the second 2020 debate, Biden asserted that his claims of "Russian disinformation" were backed by our intelligence agencies by citing a letter written by Obama-era intelligence officials such as former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former CIA Director Leon Panetta. That letter was issued on Oct. 19, 2020, just days before the debate on Oct. 22, 2020, and was widely circulated by the media as proof of Biden's claims. In their letter, the intelligence officials claimed that the information from Hunter's laptop had "all the classic earmarks of a Russian disinformation operation," and stated that "this is Russia trying to influence how Americans vote in this election," noting that "we believe strongly that Americans need to be aware of this."
That four different CIA directors would be willing to publicly promote false allegations about Russia in order to shield a presidential candidate from public attention is particularly troubling. These former CIA directors whose tenure spanned more than 10 years of U.S. foreign policy activity, invoked their government positions and lied to the American public in order to protect and get their preferred candidate, Joe Biden, elected. Recently Barr conceded that he knew that letter from our nation's intelligence officials "was baseless" and that he believed Biden himself fully understood that it "was a lie." Unlike Trump, Biden was citing published claims by intelligence officials that Barr now says he knew to be inaccurate at the time those claims were made. But, in contrast to his earlier actions regarding Trump's tweets, Barr chose to stay silent on Biden's claims. In doing so, Barr decisively interfered in the election through his inaction. Barr's differing treatment of Biden and Trump leaves many questions unanswered. The silence from Barr enabled the media's blackout on the laptop story that had direct ramifications on the 2020 election. A poll by Media Research showed that 45 percent of the Biden voters were unaware of the allegations against Hunter and Joe Biden and that 16 percent of Biden voters, well over the margin of victory wouldn't have voted for him (Biden) had they known this crucial information.
22Apr2022: A Manufactured World Crisis. PDF Excerpt: Why does the world face a crisis today? Why has a border dispute between Russia and Ukraine escalated to the point where people fear nuclear war? The answer is simple. America, under the leadership of President Joe Biden and the forces controlling him, has done this and, by doing so, brought the world to the brink of disaster. "The constant flow of U.S. and allied weapons into Ukraine and talk of supporting an extended insurgency does not seem designed to give Ukraine a victory on the battlefield but rather to hand Russia what Secretary of State Blinken called 'a strategic defeat.' "It sounds an awful lot like the Biden Administration intends to fight Russia down to the last Ukrainian!" It is believed that the U.S. should not have shipped arms to Ukraine. Doing this made the situation worse. The key point is that because there was no international outcry and no sanctions, the matter remained a local fight. If Biden and his team had reacted to the so-called Russian invasion in the same way, the matter would have remained a local quarrel. Russia and Ukraine would have made a deal and that would be that. The American Historian Charles Beard wisely stated (circa. 1930): "In the rest of the world, outside this hemisphere, our interests are remote and our power to enforce our will is relatively slight. Nothing we can do for Europeans will substantially increase our trade or add to our, or their, well-being. Nothing we can do for Asiatics will materially increase our trade or add to our, or their, well-being. With all countries in Europe and Asia, our relations should be formal and correct. As individuals we may indulge in hate and love, but the Government of the United States embarks on stormy seas when it begins to love one power and hate another officially."
22Apr2022: A Time for Choosing: A Test for Our Souls. PDF Excerpt: The political crisis the United States is now facing brings into the open a contest for the soul of our country. As important as this recent election is, the stakes transcend particular political arrangements they go to fundamental issues, about which each of us must make a choice and take a stand. A peculiarity of our current situation is this: While every American is intricately familiar with the pandemic and the effect it has had on our lives, this is not the case for voter fraud, despite the evidence being overwhelming. Some Americans are ignorant of these facts because they have been misinformed by a media that willfully withholds information. The reason for this might surprise you. There has been a force quietly at work in our country, in plain sight, that has gradually taken over ideological control of most of our institutions, businesses, and media, and even our culture. This force is Chinese and Russian Marxism/Communism. It was the stated goal of the Chinese Communist Party and the Soviet Union to infiltrate our political parties, media, and academia, in an effort to subvert America from within. This process is now almost complete. This decades-long communist subversion of our nation came to a head when the 2020 Presidential Election was rightfully stolen from President Trump. While before our major political parties didn't differ that much on a fundamental level, gradually the DNC and the Democrat Party was subverted by and succumbed to the generous funding provided by various 'Dark Money Chinese and Russian Communist Groups.' The exact same communist ideology is driving today's BLM and Antifa movements in the United States. These groups (BLM and Antifa) have direct ties to communist groups connected to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
They are trying to destroy our traditional morality and the traditional structure of society. Anything that reminds people of tradition inherently reveals, by contrast, how communism is against society and against humanity. Communism is not merely a bad economic model; it is an evil system responsible for the killing of more than 100 million innocent people during this planets past 100 years. Communism has destroyed civilizations and the good traditions and cultural heritage of many countries. And it has incited hatred in people everywhere it goes. The CCP sees the free world and especially the United States as a mortal threat to its dictatorial rule. It will do everything to defeat and destroy America. The CCP has systematically bought and blackmailed (using women and money) our key elites in government, media, academia, and business; bringing many political and corporate elites under its control. It has also bought influence over Wall Street. The Wall Street elite responsible for pressuring companies to move to China, made the most profit from this shift of America's manufacturing base to China. Meanwhile, it is Wall Street money that has supported key businesses in China, including China's military development. The CCP has used its "good friends" in Wall Street to manipulate the United States, politically and financially, for decades. The CCP has studied America in great detail. It has analyzed every congressman, senator, and governor, and even each lobbyist, and it has figured out exactly how our system works and how to corrupt the key people in our country. This is why the CCP was able to be so deeply involved in the 2020 presidential election fraud while at the same time seemingly remaining mostly invisible. The CCP's goal is to 'Remake the United States' using the evil DNC and the crooked Democratic Party. The CCP has developed a regime of censorship, propaganda, and social control that is enabling it to put in place the most perfect tyranny that will be known in this planets history. The evil CCP's immediate goal is to complete its conquest of the United States, (a second term Trump Presidency would have avoided this conflict), where many forms of tyranny will be introduced into the United States, and Americans will learn to live, feel, and think according to CCP principles. The United States and the world will enter a seemingly 'endless night of unrelenting pain, suffering, and misery' in which the 'light of good, meaning and truth' will have been snuffed out of our very souls.
22Apr2022: Why the US Should (Immediately) Ban TikTok. PDF Excerpt: TikTok, arguably the most popular Chinese app of all time, is banned in China. To those who say that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has nothing to do with TikTok, let me remind you that the CCP now controls a board seat in ByteDance, TikTok's parent company. The most powerful nations are the ones with control of "the information networks and communications technologies" that shape "the daily lives of billions of people." TikTok is designed and weaponized to spread CCP lies! TikTok posts, which are masterfully manufactured, operate "in virtual lockstep as they promote China's virtues, deflect international criticism of its human rights abuses and advance Beijing's talking points." With an addictive app like TikTok, the CCP knows that if you "bombard an audience for long enough with the same narratives, people will tend to believe them over time." TikTok is arguably the most harmful social media app in existence. Worryingly, it's growing in popularity. TikTok will have more than 1.5 billion users worldwide by the end of the year. With an increasing number of Americans downloading and using the app, there has never been a better time to ban TikTok.
22Apr2022: Marxist Professor Fired for 'Enraging' Woke Mob Warns 'Identity Politics' are a Diversion. "We are entering into an increasingly authoritarian phase". PDF Excerpt: A Marxist professor who was recently fired from her university in Canada after "enraging the mob" explained to Fox News why she believes identity politics have destroyed left-wing political thought by distracting from economic problems. The professor said she believes identity politics are "a diversion to distract people from focusing on the class-based nature of inequality, which actually is rooted in a lot of the developments that are happening in late capitalism." She sees trans activism especially as a symptom of late-stage capitalism intended to divert enormous sums to the pharmaceutical companies. "We are entering into an increasingly authoritarian phase," she said, warning that more and more people are conflating speech with violence. "People really need to take notice of what's happening. And I guess the universities were the first sign that we were in serious trouble."
22Apr2022: Gov. DeSantis is Right to Attack Disney, and the GOP Should Follow. PDF Excerpt: Disney is reaping its just reward for inserting itself into the political debate about Florida's parental rights bill, which Disney lost in spectacular fashion. Republican governors and lawmakers across the country should be taking notes. This is how you deal with big corporations that try to throw around their weight and force woke policies on voters and families. You punish them, not just because they deserve it, but also, as Voltaire famously put it, pour encourager les autres (for encouraging others). DeSantis has set a clear example that other GOP governors and state lawmakers should follow. If a corporation like Disney wants to insert itself in a political battle that has nothing to do with its business, in this case a fight over whether to prohibit classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity to children in kindergarten through the third grade, then it should be prepared to pay a heavy cost. Corporations that do what Disney did, publicly lobbying against the rights of parents to have a say in whether their young children are exposed to sexually explicit subject matter, have marked themselves out as enemies of a free people and should be treated as such. If Disney wants to make war on families in Florida, then the proper role of a democratically elected government is to go after Disney with every power at its disposal. Now that Disney has taken a stand against families and parents, there can be no doubt: Disney does not serve the public interest in Florida and has exposed Disney as a malign force in Florida's civic life and Floridians owe it nothing.
22Apr2022: 6 Crises Brought About by the US Political (DNC and GOP) Class: Part 1. PDF Excerpt: There are at least six cataclysmic/catastrophic events threatening the American republic that the U.S. political class has instigated. Increasing press reports provide evidence of in-process cataclysms unfolding in the United States. The six ongoing cataclysms/catastrophes are: 1. Cultural Marxism: Cultural Marxism is on the march throughout the United States in capacities unimaginable just a few short years ago, including so-called critical race theory and transgender activism. Normalizing the LGBTQ-plus agenda has been a policy goal of the Democratic Party for decades, first through support for homosexual marriage and now through administrative state actions to advance the radical transsexual agenda. Elements of the political class seek to displace the role of parents in order to convey state-approved gender messaging to minor children. 2. Green New Deal: "Despite the lack of any real proof of a "climate crisis," [T]he Green New Deal would force every American to replace their gasoline and diesel cars and trucks with expensive short-haul electric vehicles; their gas furnaces and stoves with electric systems; their home, local and state electrical and transmission systems with expensive upgrades that can handle a totally electric economy." Full Green New Deal implementation would lead to economic destabilization by disrupting every sector of the U.S. economy and could only be brought about through government mandates. 3. Open Borders: The Biden administration has refused to enforce existing U.S. immigration laws, which has led to a flood of illegal aliens across the U.S.-Mexico border since January 2021. The numbers are staggering: 2 million illegals total in 2021, with over 1 million added so far in 2022. The Biden administration's "immigration policy" amounts to little apprehension at the border with minimal to no public health screening. Illegal aliens in great numbers destabilize the country by creating long term problems that are expensive to solve: communicable diseases, increased crime rates (especially narcotics and human trafficking), welfare dependency, excessive strains on public health and education services, and competition for unskilled jobs.4. Chinese Regime Infiltrates America: Beijing seeks to replace the current international order with a Chinese led authoritarian socialist system in which individual rights, freedoms, and daily transactions among individuals are monitored and controlled by the communist-led state and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has embarked on a campaign to infiltrate, influence, coerce, and ultimately subjugate the United States through penetration and corruption of U.S. institutions and key individuals; it has become clear that virtually every sector of American society has been infiltrated and corrupted by Chinese money, as enabled by the political class. 5. Academia: Corruption of Public Education - capture the children; capture the future. "The tally of gifts and contracts from China to U.S. universities since the start of 2013 is approaching $1 billion." A more direct influence operation is exemplified by anonymous Chinese donations to Universities. The U.S. political class (primarily the Democratic Party and its media enablers) is facilitating the ideological and sexual grooming of American children and removing parents from the control of public education.6. Media: Several large U.S. media corporations including The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and NBC News, ABC and ESPN, and Bloomberg have business ties with China. "Representatives from American companies with financial ties to China naturally become defenders of the CCP's policies and spreading the CCP's propaganda." China's state-run media have frequently purchased advertising in U.S. media in order to influence narratives. Final Thoughts: The U.S. technology sector is the mother lode for next-generation technologies sought by Beijing for military and economic reasons. U.S. tech billionaires have long-standing ties to China. U.S. lawmakers have expressed concern about the leakage of classified technology to China. "More than 20 Silicon Valley venture capital firms have close ties to a Chinese government fund or state-owned entity." Venture capital-funded startups in Silicon Valley are frequently the originators of the world's most advanced and innovative technology developments. The ongoing corruption of U.S. institutions by the CCP has resulted in the suppression of negative news about China, including the Uyghur and Tibetan genocide, forced organ harvesting, the rise of the People's Liberation Army, and the suppression of COVID-19 information. All of this is intended to hide the emerging Chinese threat from unsuspecting Americans. 22Apr2022: 6 Crises Brought About by the US Political Class: Part 2. PDFCriminalization of Political Dissent: The Democratic Party is increasingly focused on quashing all political dissent by various means, including the blatant criminalization of political speech protected by the First Amendment. The Democrat's political enemies are being labeled as extremists and domestic terrorists, with the force of the federal government being used to silence dissent through investigations and prosecutions. A favorite tactic has been the use of lawfare to achieve the Democrat's political goals. The premier example is the ongoing congressional investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021 protest at the U.S. Capitol, in conjunction with the incarceration without trial of hundreds of people guilty of nothing more than misdemeanor criminal trespass. "The DOJ opened an investigation into the alternate slates of electors put forth by the Republican ticket in seven states following the 2020 presidential election, in response to appeals from Democrats who expect to benefit politically from media coverage of the drama." The criminalization of political dissent strikes at the heart of the U.S. Constitution, as the First Amendment guarantees were deemed the top priority of the Founding Fathers when they wrote the Bill of Rights. The end of dissent will signify the end of the American republic.
21Apr2022: Democrats Sicced the CIA on their Domestic Enemy, President Trump. PDF Excerpt: Newly released CIA memoranda suggest the tech gurus behind the Alfa Bank hoax also tracked Donald Trump's movements to devise another collusion conspiracy theory. While smaller in scale than other aspects of Spygate, the "Yotaphone Hoax" represents an equally serious scandal because it involved both the mining of proprietary information and sensitive data from the Executive Office of the President (EOP) and the apparent surveillance of Trump's physical movements. But then two months ago, as part of the government's "Motion to Inquire Into Potential Conflicts of Interest," Durham's team revealed for the first time that when Sussmann met with the CIA in early 2017, he provided agents with internet data beyond the Alfa Bank conspiracy theory. This data, Sussmann claimed, "demonstrated that Trump and/or his associates were using supposedly rare, Russian-made wireless phones in the vicinity of the White House and other locations." The "supposedly rare, Russian-made wireless phones" were "Yotaphones." Following Durham's filing of the conflicts of interest motion, it appeared Sussmann bore responsibility for peddling a second conspiracy theory to the CIA. But the details contained in the government's motion proved insufficient to understand the Yotaphone angle to Spygate. That all changed on Friday, when the special counsel filed two CIA memoranda memorializing what Sussmann said about the Yotaphones and the data Joffe and his tech experts had compiled. The CIA was watching Trump for years: While the earlier court filings created the appearance that the DNS data had merely been pulled from locations connected to Trump, the memoranda speak of the phones connected to "Wi-Fi used at Trump's apartment." It thus appears that the DNS data directly targeted the Wi-Fi networks specifically used by Trump. Even more disconcerting are the repeated references in the memoranda to Trump's physical location during the DNS lookups, whether at the Trump Tower, in Michigan, or at the White House. Sussmann even claimed, according to one of the CIA memoranda, "the phone was never noticed in two places at once, only around the President's Movements." Durham's team seeks to present evidence of Sussmann's representations to the CIA as evidence of his motive and intent to also deceive the FBI. But the scandal here goes much beyond Sussmann, and the Yotaphone hoax far surpasses what the public seems to realize and represents yet another instance of Trump's enemies spying on him.
21Apr2022: James Carville Complains No One "Fears the Democrat Party." PDF Veteran Democrat strategist James Carville (a Machiavelli disciple) lamented how no one "fears the Democrat Party." They (Democrats) are weak and all they are going to do is talk bad about each other. Literally, you can't govern without fear. You can't have a political party (without fear).
21Apr2022: Marjorie Taylor Greene's Rhetoric Disqualifying (from running for office.) PDF Georgia voters suing to have Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) disqualified from running for reelection over her comments and tweets surrounding the riot at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. "It's a rare remedy, and it's one the Constitution only provides in the case of an official that has taken an oath to defend the Constitution who thereafter engaged in insurrection. This is not about the political choice whether to vote her in or out, this is about the Constitution disqualifying her, and our clients, the ones that brought this challenge, are seeking to enforce that provision of the Constitution, Section 3 of the 14th Amendment and uphold our constitutional democracy." "The lawsuit does argue the congresswoman helped facilitate the rioters in part with her rhetoric around the results of the election. The plan is to make the argument that her speech amounted to a call to action?” "It quite clearly did amount to a call to action. She literally called on her supporters to go to Washington, D.C. on January 6 at a point in time when it was very clear. It was reported in the media that violence was likely to occur at the Capitol. In fact, she had a long history of which supporters were well aware of advocating violence against her political opponents. And she specifically called that day, January 6th, as being their 1776 moment, which was well understood among followers of Marjorie Taylor Greene to be a call for exactly what 1776 was, which was a revolution using violence, in this case, not a revolution against a foreign government but an insurrection against our own government, exactly what the Constitution says you are disqualified if you participate in."
21Apr2022: GOP Insiders in Tennessee Reinterpret Party Bylaws to Kick Trump-Backed Congressional Candidate Off Ballot. PDF In a major blow to the voters of Tennessee the RINO's in the Tennessee arm of the Republican National Committee (RNC), the Tennessee GOP, reinterpreted its bylaws this year in a concerted effort by some party insiders to block primary ballot access for among others a congressional candidate that former President Donald Trump supports. TN GOP party insiders viewed Ortagus and fellow candidate Robby Starbuck as carpetbaggers, because they were new to middle Tennessee having moved there in the past couple years, and so for the past several months these Tennessee RINO GOP insiders devised a number of strategies to try to keep Ortagus and Starbuck off the ballot. Given the betrayal of just a few party insiders doing this, if Ortagus can find a way back onto the ballot she could be an even more formidable candidate now than before because she can run not just with Trump's endorsement but also as an outsider the insiders did everything humanly possible they could to keep her off the ballot. Senator Niceley's (R-TN) bill, which passed the legislature and became law without a signature from GOP Governor Bill Lee, adds additional residency requirements beyond the Constitution for U.S. congressional candidates in Tennessee. Specifically, the new bill adds to state law a requirement that candidates for U.S. House and U.S. Senate in Tennessee as state law already required for state House and state Senate candidates be residents of the state for at least three years before being eligible to qualify as a candidate in a primary election.
21Apr2022: Breitbart: Analysts Shift House Predictions Heavily Toward Republicans. PDF Excerpt: Analysts from two separate groups who predict the probable outcome for U.S. House of Representatives races released their predictions on Wednesday that all move in favor of the Republican incumbent or candidate versus the Democrat. University of Virginia Center for Politics and the Cook Political Report shifted their House predictions in favor of the Republicans. The Center for Politics acknowledged that part of their prediction change is due to the Republicans remaining the "strong favorites to win the House majority, and with redistricting nearly complete, we can now offer a more complete assessment of what our ratings suggest for the fall." The analysts at the Center for Politics added that after the first quarter filing deadline last week, it is easier to see the overall playing field of the House. Their take is that incumbent House Democrats continued to raise impressive amounts of cash but so did incumbent House Republicans. Additionally, they noted that Republican challengers are either "doing fine or better than fine on the money front." Center for Politics's current top line rating is: 210 seats would be rated Safe, Likely, or Leans Republican, 198 would be rated Safe, Likely, or Leans Democratic, and 27 would be rated as Toss-ups. "That means no Democrat in a single-digit Biden (or Trump-won) district is secure, and even some seats Biden carried by double-digit margins in 2020 could come into play this fall, giving the GOP surprising 'reach' opportunities." Ratings showed that 27 Democrat-held seats are a "Toss Up" or worse, with the list continuing to grow. And in contrast, there are only 12 Republican-held seats that are a "Toss Up" or worse. Cook noted that all of the changes are due to redistricting, not "atmospheric factors." The Republicans have the upper hand walking into the November election and only need to have a net gain of five seats to regain the House.
21Apr2022: MSNBC: GOP Using 'Tactic of War' in Attempt to Dehumanize LGBTQ Community. PDF MSNBC-DNC Operative Nicolle Wallace said Wednesday on her show "Deadline" that Republicans are using a "tactic of war" called dehumanization (a tactic the democrats are very familiar with). "The boogeymen in the campaign is Critical Race Theory, the accusations that LGBT people are grooming children, served as fuel for a nearly unprecedented new phase and led to book bans." "The truth is dehumanization as a tactic for politics is from war. Dehumanization - it's a tactic. The Russians get their soldiers to rape children by dehumanizing them. Dehumanization, as a practice, is a tactic of war. It's being deployed in our politics, and people like you and I sometimes lose the plot."
21Apr2022: RINO Liz Cheney Rakes In More 'Dark' Money From Virginia Than Her Home State. PDF Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney celebrated a major fundraising haul last week when this year's first-quarter filing eclipsed $10 million raised for the endangered lawmaker in a competitive primary. After Cheney raised more than $2.3 million in 'Dark Money Funding' this year alone, her campaign has a war chest with $6.8 million in cash on hand. "In previous cycles, it was common for Cheney to raise a few hundred thousand dollars in a quarter, mostly from Wyoming residents, with the national attention her race has received, money has poured in from across the country." Money from California and Texas now make up the bulk of the Wyoming lawmaker's funding. According to a Federalist analysis of Cheney's campaign finances to date based on public records from the Federal Election Commission (FEC), only about 2 percent of Cheney's total contributors were from her home state. Cash will remain a primary advantage for the at-large lawmaker defending her seat for a fourth term in the lower chamber. Cheney's home unpopularity has only deepened as she continues to lead the weaponized January 6 Committee in pursuit of a long-running feud with former President Trump, who carried Wyoming by a wider margin than any other state in the country. The Select Committee, which Cheney serves as vice-chair, has undermined democratic norms and even targeted operatives working to unseat her in Wyoming with no connection to any events in or around the capital on January 6th.
21Apr2022: 4 Eye-Poppers From Spygate Cabal's Rush To Hide Their Tracks In Court. PDF On April 19, a bunch of panicked participants in the Spygate scandal rushed the courthouse to intervene in the special counsel's criminal case against former Hillary Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann. They hope to prevent prosecutors from accessing a few dozen documents that might further reveal their role in peddling the Alfa Bank hoax. Here are the top takeaways from these filings: 1. Sussmann Seeks to Keep the Documents Secret Based on Procedure, 2. Fusion GPS and Perkins Coie Doth Protest
Too Much, 3. Tech Executive Rodney Joffe Seemingly Confirms the False Statement Part of the Crime, and 4. Hillary's Chutzpah. Not too long ago, news broke the Federal Election Commission had fined the DNC and Hillary for America in the six digits after finding probable cause that they violated federal election law by misreporting the purpose of certain disbursements. The disbursements concerned payments made between July 15, 2016 and August 26, 2016 to Perkins Coie and were described in disclosure reports as "legal services." That money instead went to Fusion GPS for purported "opposition research." which led to the 'Russia Collusion Hoax'.
21Apr2022: Barack Obama Embraces 'New Role: Promoting Censorship'. PDF Former President Barack Obama will deliver a speech at Stanford University on Thursday that embraces his "new role" of policing the national debate over whether social media companies should censor political opponents. Obama "is expected to add his voice to demands for rules to rein in the flood of lies polluting public discourse," the New York Times reported. "In private meetings and public appearances over the last year, the former president has waded deeply into the public fray over misinformation and disinformation, warning that the scourge of falsehoods online has eroded the foundations of democracy at home and abroad." Obama said during a speech "that social media companies should censor what we don't think are good for society."
21Apr2022: Florida State Rep. Anthony Sabatini Predicts Disney Tax Bill will Pass: "Woke Capital Needs to Be Crushed". PDF Florida state Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R) predicted legislation that would end Disney's special tax and governing jurisdiction will "overwhelmingly" pass on Thursday and that "woke capital needs to be crushed." "Woke corporations like Disney that fight against Florida's pro-family agenda need to be defeated." "It's time for the Republican Parting to start serving the actual working people not special corporate interests," Sabatini explained. "I'm proud to be fighting alongside Governor DeSantis against anti-American corporations like Disney."
21Apr2022: Elon Musk's Battle For Twitter Is A Proxy War For Americans Against The Ruling Class. PDF Elon Musk's battle for Twitter has become a smoldering proxy war between the ruling class and a free and sovereign people, a war that transcends the four corners of his offer letter. It is a contest over who controls the public discourse, and with it, who rules. Our elites self-evidently believe that, to retain power, they must dominate the digital public square. A monopoly on The Narrative is integral to a monopoly on power. Musk elaborated on his view, stating: Twitter has become a de facto town square. It's just really important that people have both the reality and the perception that they are able to speak freely within the bounds of the law and so one of the things that I believe Twitter should do is open source the algorithm and [if Twitter] make[s] any changes to people's tweets if they're emphasized or de-emphasized, that action should be made apparent so anyone can see that action's been taken so there's no sort of behind-the-scenes manipulation either algorithmically or manually. Musk added that "this is not a way to make money. My strong intuitive sense is that having a public platform that is maximally trusted and broadly inclusive is extremely important to the future of civilization. I don't care about the economics at all."
21Apr2022: Civilians Continue To Face Horrors As Mariupol Becomes Ukrainian Alamo. PDF Bodies littered the streets and Ukrainian troops rejected a Russian ultimatum to surrender what is left of the bombed wasteland of Mariupol on Wednesday, with the last remaining defenders of the Donbas port city taking cover at a steel plant that threatens to become a Ukrainian Alamo. The last stand at Azovstal, a sprawling industrial complex in the city's east could be the final act of resistance in a city that has been cut off and pummeled by airstrikes and artillery fire since the early days of the war. The situation for the estimated 100,000 civilians left in Mariupol remained bleak.
21Apr2022: The Defense of Mariupol Will Go Down in History for its Courage and Brutality. PDF Excerpt: You have to admire the courage, the sheer defiance of the soldiers hanging on in decimated Mariupol, refusing to capitulate to Russia's surrender-or-die demand, staring down an almost certain death. What bravery it must take to court such a fate, to say, bring it on, come what may. What mettle, what fearlessness, to know your death is all but guaranteed and yet still refuse to bow down to evil to (maybe) save your life. All to protect just a little longer one corner of your country from those who want it for themselves. And so, with the Russians closing in, the Ukrainian soldiers holed up under constant fire are doing all they can: never giving in, never, never, never. "The enemy is outnumbering us 10 to 1, we appeal and plead to all world leaders to help us." That and hoping for a miracle. 21Apr2022: Ukrainian Marine Commander Makes Last Ditch Plea For Evacuation From Mariupol (~3mins)
20Apr2022: Fearing a Trump Repeat, January 6 Panel Considers Changes to Insurrection Act. PDF Excerpt: The 1807 law allows a president to deploy American troops inside the country to put down a rebellion. Lawmakers fear it could be abused by a future president trying to stoke one. In the days before the January 6 attack on the Capitol, some of President Donald J. Trump's most extreme allies and members of right-wing militia groups urged him to use his power as commander in chief to unleash the military to help keep him in office. Now, as the House committee investigating last year's riot uncovers new evidence about the lengths to which Mr. Trump was willing to go to cling to power, some lawmakers on the panel have quietly begun discussions about rewriting the Insurrection Act, the 1807 law that gives presidents wide authority to deploy the military within the United States to respond to a rebellion. While Mr. Trump never invoked the law, he threatened to do so in 2020 to have the military crack down on crowds protesting the police killing of George Floyd. Stephen Miller, one of his top advisers, also proposed putting it into effect to turn back migrants at the southwestern border, an idea that was rejected by the defense secretary at the time, Mark T. Esper. As Mr. Trump grasped for ways to overturn his defeat in the 2020 presidential election, some hard-right advisers encouraged him to declare martial law and deploy U.S. troops to seize voting machines. "There are many of us who are of the view that the Insurrection Act, which the former president threatened to invoke multiple times throughout 2020, bears a review," said Representative Zoe Lofgren, Democrat of California and a member of the January 6 committee. While no evidence has emerged that Mr. Trump planned to invoke the act to stay in office, people close to him were pushing for him to do so. Michael T. Flynn, Mr. Trump's first national security adviser, attended a meeting in the Oval Office on Dec. 18, 2020, in which participants discussed seizing voting machines, declaring a national emergency and invoking certain national security emergency powers. That meeting came after Mr. Flynn gave an interview to the television network Newsmax in which he talked about a purported precedent for deploying troops and declaring martial law to "rerun" the election. The House committee, which has interviewed more than 850 witnesses, is charged with writing an authoritative report about the events that led to the violence of January 6 and coming up with legislative recommendations to try to protect American democracy from a repeat. One such recommendation is almost certainly to be an overhaul of the Electoral Count Act, which Mr. Trump and his allies tried to use to overturn the 2020 election. In recent weeks, the panel has begun discussing whether to call for revisions to the Insurrection Act, which empowers the president to deploy troops to suppress "any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination or conspiracy." The changes under discussion could add a higher and more detailed threshold for a president to meet before he could deploy troops domestically, including requiring consultation with Congress.
20Apr2022: Redistricting War: DeSantis's Map to Face "Sue to Blue" Strategy in Court. PDF Excerpt: Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) claimed on Tuesday the DeSantis proposed state redistricting map will be rejected in court upon passage by lawmakers. The Florida legislature will consider Gov. Ron DeSantis's (R) map that would create 20 red-leaning and eight blue-leaning congressional districts. The district lines will serve the state for the next ten years, shaping national politics. But Maloney claimed the map violates the Voting Rights Act and does not shape districts by race. "The map they're proposing would violate the Voting Rights Act and clearly goes after African American voters. So it's more of the same," Maloney alleged to the Hill. "They depend on suppressing African American votes to win seats, and it's disgraceful."
20Apr2022: Adam Kinzinger: "I Would Love to Run Against Trump in 2024." PDF Excerpt: File this one under "Are You Kidding Me", Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), one of the staunchest anti-MAGA voices in Congress, said he would "love" to run against former President Donald Trump for the White House in 2024. "I would love it. I really would," Kinzinger stated in a recent interview with the Huffington Post. "Even if he crushed me, like in a primary, to be able to stand up and call out the garbage is just a necessary thing, regardless of who it is. I think it'd be fun."
20Apr2022: Global Food Crisis: IMF Warns of Unrest Amid Food Supply Shortages. PDF Excerpt: The IMF has become the most recent global body to release a warning regarding potentially forthcoming global food shortages, saying that vulnerable nations are at risk of civil unrest amid supply issues. Civil unrest linked to sky-high food prices is in the cards for poorer countries, the IMF has warned amid fears that the world could be heading into a global food crisis as a result of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. "Even before the war, inflation in many countries had been rising due to supply-demand imbalances and policy support during the pandemic, prompting a tightening of monetary policy. In this context, beyond its immediate and tragic humanitarian impact, the war will slow economic growth and increase inflation. Furthermore, increases in food and fuel prices may also significantly increase the prospect of social unrest in poorer countries. Central banks will need to adjust their policies decisively to ensure that medium- and long-term inflation expectations remain anchored."
20Apr2022: Judge Approves Extradition of WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange to USA. PDF LONDON (AP) - A British judge on Wednesday formally approved the extradition of Julian Assange to the United States to face spying charges. The U.S. has asked British authorities to extradite Assange so he can stand trial on 17 charges of espionage and one charge of computer misuse. American prosecutors say Assange unlawfully helped U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning steal classified diplomatic cables and military files that WikiLeaks later published, putting lives at risk. Supporters and lawyers for Assange, 50, argue that he was acting as a journalist and is entitled to First Amendment protections of freedom of speech for publishing documents that exposed U.S. military wrongdoing in Iraq and Afghanistan. They argue that his case is politically motivated.
20Apr2022: "China Developing Nuclear Arsenal for Global Domination" PDF Excerpt: The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is building up its nuclear arsenal as part of a greater effort to undermine the West and create a new international order in its own image, according to one expert. "I don't think [China is] building up its forces just for the deterrence factor," said Peter Pry, Director of the U.S. nuclear strategy forum at the Center for Security Policy, a Washington-based think tank. I think it's building up its nuclear forces for global domination." "We have been very slow to realize the consequences of neglecting our nuclear forces, and only now we're waking up waking up to it," Pry said. "Many in Washington are still reluctant to accept that reality because many fortunes have been made in the West based on trade with China." Pry said that the CCP was playing a long strategic game with the buildup and modernization of its nuclear forces. A key goal of China's nuclear program, he said, was to ensure that China could overcome Russia in the distant future, after the two nations' partnership had pushed the United States out of its global leadership role. That push toward nuclear proliferation and eventual dominance was important, Pry said, because Chinese communist leadership did not share the United States' aversion to initiating nuclear conflict. "I think the West is extremely dangerous and delusional in thinking that Russian and Chinese strategic culture is the same as ours, that they share the same view as we do about nuclear weapons being unusable, that you can't fight and win a nuclear war," Pry said. "I think the problem is a profound difference in the strategic cultures of authoritarian and totalitarian states versus free societies, democracies, like the United States. Our strategic culture is one of what I would call 'dysfunctional optimism'. You know, we always look at the best possible outcome."
20Apr2022: CCP Orders Flow of Fentanyl into American Communities Quadruple. PDF Four times as much fentanyl is flowing across the United States-Mexico border under President Joe Biden compared to two years prior when former President Trump was in office. Earlier this month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that more than 100,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in the prior 12 months. Nearly two-thirds of those deaths were linked to fentanyl. Breitbart News reported, two illegal aliens were arrested in Sterling Heights, Michigan, after having been found trafficking about 20,000 fentanyl pills for the Mexican drug cartels. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) official Anne Milgram said this month that there was enough fentanyl trafficked into American communities last year, via the border, "to kill every American citizen."
20Apr2022: OS Mandarin - Leaders in Tech, Industry, and Government Systematically Turn American Innovation Against America. PDF Excerpt: The geoeconomic threat from China is real and growing, while the U.S. is fundamentally unprepared to meet the threat, in no small part due to a series of choices made over the last several decades by policymakers determined to gut our domestic manufacturing and tech capabilities. The goal should be to out-compete, out-innovate, and out-maneuver China, not start a war. The problem is the greed of the Globalist Elites is unbound as they continue to intentionally entangle themselves with China financially. As long as titans of American finance can simultaneously invest massive sums in China's success, and occupy positions of power and influence over government financial matters, any attempt to equip America's economy against China will fail. Author Gordon Chang summed up the problem succinctly: "America's companies are supporting a hostile state bent on destroying America. The Chinese don't have to steal our intellectual property; our companies are giving it away for free. These corporations aren't 'exporting American values.' They're importing Chinese statism." Any U.S.-China policy will be plagued with incoherence and undermined at every turn by American-based companies hedging their bets with the Chinese regime.
19Apr2022: Effort to Remove (Disqualify) Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) From Ballot (Under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment: Engaging in Insurrection/Rebellion) Can Proceed, Judge Says. PDF The case that Ms. Greene unsuccessfully sought to have dismissed mirrors efforts against other Republicans centered on the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. A federal judge cleared the way on Monday for a group of Georgia voters to move forward with legal efforts seeking to disqualify Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from running for re-election to Congress, citing her role in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. The disqualification effort is based on a constitutional provision adopted after the Civil War that barred members of the Confederacy from holding office. It mirrors several other cases involving Republican members of Congress, whose roles leading up to and during the deadly riot have drawn intense criticism. In the 73-page ruling, Judge Totenberg wrote that Ms. Greene had failed to meet the "burden of persuasion" in her request for injunctive relief, which she called an extraordinary and drastic remedy. "This case involves a whirlpool of colliding constitutional interests of public import," Judge Totenberg wrote. "The novelty of the factual and historical posture of this case especially when assessed in the context of a preliminary injunction motion reviewed on a fast track has made resolution of the complex legal issues at stake here particularly demanding." Ms. Greene had "publicly and vigorously condemned the attack on the Capitol." The effort to remove her from the ballot is part of a well-funded nationwide effort to strip voters of their right to vote for candidates of their choice, with elections determined by "bureaucrats, judges, lawyers and clever legal arguments." The decision by Judge Totenberg stood in stark contrast with a recent ruling in a similar case involving Representative Madison Cawthorn in North Carolina. In blocking that disqualification effort, U.S. District Judge Richard E. Myers II, an appointee of Mr. Trump, ruled that the 14th Amendment of the Constitution narrowly applied to members of the Confederacy after the Civil War. 19Apr2022: 14th Amendment Section 3 - Disqualification Clause. PDF No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
19Apr2022: Federalist: Donald Trump is the Least Unpopular Leader in the Country. PDF Excerpt: More than a year out of office, former President Donald Trump is more popular than his Democrat successor and the entire congressional leadership. While Democrats continue to campaign on climate change and racism as the most important issues heading into a historically hostile midterm cycle for the party in the White House, recent polling suggests voters' priorities are fixated on the economy, particularly inflation.Trump also topped the list of 18 political figures in the Harvard/Harris survey on favorability with a net-positive rating of 4 percentage points.
19Apr2022: Media Is Hating On Musk's Twitter Bid Because They Hate Free Thought. PDF The corporate media hates the idea of mega-billionaire Elon Musk buying out Twitter because they hate the idea of Americans thinking for themselves. Twitter already signaled its unwillingness to relinquish power to Musk or anyone who openly embraces freedom of speech. Now the corporate media is spinning Musk's nearly $43 billion offer to look like the nation's next biggest threat. Why are billionaire-owned media outlets suddenly mad that another billionaire businessman is trying to take a stake in the Big Tech game? Because it makes their jobs as the propaganda press harder. The corporate media expect you to believe all of their lies because they said it was so. If you question them, they smear you for spreading "misinformation." Big Tech reinforces that deliberately faulty coverage by editorializing and spinning the news. When Musk acquires Twitter and eliminates the political censorship it wields to shut down political enemies, the corporate media will have fewer resources to program Americans' thinking.
19Apr2022: By 'Threat To Democracy' The Left Means A Threat To Their Regime. PDF Excerpt: The same people who relentlessly insisted that Big Tech's censorship campaign was totally fine are now screaming that a potential buyout of Twitter by Elon Musk poses a certified Threat to Democracy. But we've heard this absurd routine before, and it's not really democracy they're worried about. Big Tech, big media, and big government cabal just whine about democracy being under siege when their own power conglomerate is threatened.The idea of losing power to silence opposing viewpoints on social media is terrifying to these people, so terrifying that in their panic they don't even realize they've admitted their own gluttony for control. A 'threat to democracy" is the DNC's favorite label with which to smear anything that challenges their power. The Atlantic has called the entire Republican Party "a grave threat to American democracy," with similar smears from Business Insider and the Chicago Sun-Times. Nearly everyone on the left whined that questions about the rigging of the 2020 election were existential threats to democracy, after they spent years deriding President Donald Trump's 2016 win as "illegitimate." It's more than obvious by now that the Democrats don't truly want democracy or freedom, but power. When their control over what laws are passed, who wins elections, what's taught to kids in schools, or what you're allowed to say on social media is challenged, including by actual democratic processes like fair elections, free speech, or the will of a congressional majority, they'll rush to call the challenger an enemy of democracy itself.
18Apr2022: Federalist: FBI Weaponized "Ludicrous Collusion Hoax" to Target Trump. PDF "The most major meddling that we saw in the 2016 election was done by this Hillary Clinton secretly funded, secretly orchestrated operation to set a false narrative, one that continued throughout the Trump administration. That was this false narrative that Trump had colluded with Russia to steal the election. That was something her campaign secretly bought and paid for," Federalist Editor-in-Chief Mollie Hemingway said on Fox Business Network's "The Evening Edit." "That caused so much damage in the 2016 election but throughout the entire administration of Trump. That was something that caused global problems, it caused domestic problems, and it was done by her campaign and the Democrat National Committee," Hemingway added.
18Apr2022: Republican-Led States Continue to Lead in Economic Recovery. PDF Across the county, states led by Republican governors and legislatures have proven to be overwhelmingly more successful at leading their states to economic recovery than those governed by Democrats, according to an analysis of recently released March state-by-state unemployment data from the Department of Labor.
18Apr2022: Democrat Immigrant from Hong Kong Fights for Election Integrity in San Francisco. PDF Kit Lam, a father of two and volunteer for the San Francisco school board recall campaign, filed a civil lawsuit on April 13 against a thief who stole recall petitions almost a year ago. As a naturalized American citizen, Lam said, "[I] should be free to express my political views without harassment and threat of violence." His case deserves national attention because we are in an election year, and many Americans from both sides of the political divide have raised questions about election interference and integrity. An incident such as petition stealing, if only lightly punished, will not build voters' confidence in upcoming elections.
18Apr2022: CNN Admits Joe Biden's Approval Rating Worst in Elected History. PDF "A first-term president at this point in his presidency, ah, this is the lowest," the CNN guy says as New Day's John Berman looks like he's about to cry. "This is the lowest for anyone elected to the presidency and didn't get up there through the vice presidency," the CNN guy adds. "This is a really, really, really bad number." It is not an exaggeration to say that Biden has the corporate media, Big Business, academia, the Deep State, Big Tech, and all of Hollywood working 24/7 to protect him, and he's still entering the Easter weekend in the worst shape of any elected president in recorded history. That fact shows just how extraordinary of a failure Biden's presidency is, but it also shows you that New Media is still penetrating out there despite all the blacklisting, banning, algorithm manipulation, and canceling. Of course, one advantage we (conservatives) have against the organized left is truth, common sense, and basic human decency.
18Apr2022: 3 Blockbuster Revelations From The Latest Special Counsel Durham Court Filings. PDF Excerpt: New court filings in a Spygate case solve some long-running mysteries and hint at serious developments. Late Friday, three new memoranda and a handful of exhibits hit the docket in Special Counsel John Durham's criminal case against former Hillary Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann. The filings analyzed about a dozen tedious issues concerning what evidence prosecutors may use at trial to prove Sussmann broke the law by lying to then-FBI General Counsel James Baker when he showed Baker information that supposedly indicated Donald Trump had a secret communications channel with the Russia-based Alfa Bank. The evidentiary issues and the court's resolution of them will prove vital when the trial begins next month. The special counsel's office will try to prove Sussmann falsely told Baker he was not presenting the Alfa Bank information on behalf of a client, when in fact he represented both the Clinton campaign and tech executive Rodney Joffe. Here are three fascinating takeaways revealed in Friday's flurry of court filings: 1. The Mystery of the Appearing Text Solved, 2. Yes, the Executive Office of the President Spying Was About Trump, and 3. Tech Researcher-2, David Dagon, Granted Immunity. Dagon also has the ability to counter Sussmann's claims of ignorance about the technicalities of DNS data. The Georgia Tech researcher is prepared to testify that when he raised concerns with Sussmann about whether the Trump-Alfa Bank data had been "lawfully collected and used," in assuring him that there were no legal issues, Sussmann demonstrated an understanding of the data sources.
18Apr2022: Durham: Five Hillary Clinton Associates Are Taking the Fifth in Russia Hoax Prosecution. PDF Five associates of Hillary Clinton and her presidential campaign are invoking their Fifth Amendment rights and refusing to cooperate with Special Counsel John H. Durham, according a filing in federal court revealed later Friday in Washington, DC. The revelation emerged in a motion filed by Durham to oppose the efforts of defendant Michael Sussmann and the Clinton campaign to withhold some documents from evidence by asserting attorney-client privilege. Legal scholar Jonathan Turley noted in a commentary on the filing: [Durham] is now moving to give immunity to a key witness while revealing that the claims made by the Clinton campaign were viewed by the CIA as "not technically plausible" and "user created." He also revealed that at least five of the former Clinton campaign contractors/researchers have invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to cooperate in fear that they might incriminate themselves in criminal conduct. Turley also noted that Durham's filing "also detailed how the false Russian collusion claims related to Alfa Bank involved Clinton General Counsel Marc Elias and Christopher Steele."
18Apr2022: The Only Way To Fight Disinformation Is To Fight Political Censorship. PDF Excerpt: Political censorship creates deep dysfunction in society. In fact, the surest way to kill a democracy is to practice political censorship under the guise of protecting society from disinformation. Censorship causes disinformation. It's the grandaddy of disinformation, not a solution to it. The sooner everyone recognizes this obvious fact, the better off we'll be. Whenever a self-anointed elite sets up a Ministry of Truth, the link between censorship and disinformation becomes clear. Before long, they invent reality and punish anyone who expresses a different viewpoint. So, it's no small irony that those who claim to be protecting "democracy" from disinformation are the biggest promoters of disinformation and greatest destroyers of real democracy. Their dependence on censorship obstructs the circulation of facts. It prevents any worthwhile exchange of ideas.
18Apr2022: The Dumbest Generation Wallows In Mediocrity And Self-Pity. PDF Excerpt: English professor Mark Bauerlein, who saw what was happening to young people. In 2008, he wrote the "The Dumbest Generation", arguing that millennials would become increasingly ignorant, vain, and immature because of their chronic use of digital technology. Thirteen years later, Bauerlein's predictions have largely become true. As he explains in "The Dumbest Generation Grows Up", a sequel to "The Dumbest Generation", many of today's millennials are not thriving as predicted, but instead are "ending up behind a Starbucks counter or doing contract work, living with their parents or in a house with four friends, nonetheless lonely and mistrustful, with no thoughts of marriage and children, no weekly church attendance or civic memberships, more than half of them convinced that their country is racist and sexist."
And yes, they are still the dumbest illiterate generation, reading less than any previous generation and knowing next to nothing about the world they inhabit.
18Apr2022: Iran Warns "Heart" of Israel at Risk if Jewish State Makes "Slightest Move" Against It. PDF Iran President Ebrahim Raisi warned on Monday the very "heart" of Israel is at risk if it even hints at action against Tehran, before claiming the Islamic republic alone defeated Saddam Hussein and that fate now awaits the Jewish State. "You must know that if you try to take any action against the Iranian nation our armed forces will not leave you in peace," Raisi said, during a military parade to mark National Army Day as reported by state news agency IRNA. He added "in case of the smallest move by the Israeli regime against the Iranian nation, the heart of Israel would be the destination for Iran's armed forces."
18Apr2022: Blood Money: How America's Sports Owners Are in Bed with Communist China. PDF Many owners in the NBA and other sports associations who have shown public support for protest movements that are publicly critical of America's supposed human rights struggles, while at the same time covering up, and in some cases defending, China's abysmal human rights record. Human rights groups have warned the world of the government-led atrocities against Uyghur people in China's Xinjiang region, where reports of concentration camps, forced labor, torture, rape, sterilization, and assimilation have plagued the Chinese Communist state for many years.

16Apr2022: 20 Federal 'Assets' Embedded at Capitol on January 6 for 'False Flag' Operations. PDF At least 20 FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives "Assets" were embedded in and around the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 for 'False Flag' operations. Since the first arrests of January 6 defendants in early 2021, there has been extensive speculation and questions from attorneys, defendants, case observers, and members of Congress about the role law enforcement played that day.
16Apr2022: NYT: January 6 Panel Has Evidence for Criminal Referral of Trump, but Splits on Sending. PDF Excerpt: Despite concluding that it has enough evidence, the committee is concerned that making a referral to the Justice Department would backfire by politicizing the investigation into the Capitol riot. The debate centers on whether making a referral, a largely symbolic act, would backfire by politically tainting the Justice Department's expanding investigation into the January6 assault and what led up to it. Since last summer, a team of former federal prosecutors working for the committee has focused on documenting the attack and the preceding efforts by Mr. Trump and his allies to reverse his defeat in the 2020 election. The panel plans to issue a detailed report on its findings, but in recent months it has regularly signaled that it was also weighing a criminal referral that would pressure Attorney General Merrick Garland to open a criminal investigation into Mr. Trump. Despite concluding that they have enough evidence to refer Mr. Trump for obstructing a congressional proceeding and conspiring to defraud the American people, some on the committee are questioning whether there is any need to make a referral. The Justice Department appears to be ramping up a wide-ranging investigation, and making a referral could saddle a criminal case with further partisan baggage at a time when Mr. Trump is openly flirting with running again in 2024. The committee's vice chairwoman, Representative Liz Cheney acknowledged there was significant evidence of criminality. "I think that it is absolutely the case, it's absolutely clear that what President Trump was doing, what a number of people around him were doing, that they knew it was unlawful. They did it anyway," said Ms. Cheney, she stated that "President Trump proceeded to derail certification of the Electoral College outcome," Judge Carter found that it was "more likely than not" that Mr. Trump and Attorney Mr. Eastman had committed federal crimes. The ruling led some committee and staff members to argue that even though they felt they had amassed enough evidence to justify calling for a prosecution, the judge's decision would carry far greater weight with Mr. Garland than any referral letter they could write, according to people with knowledge of the conversations. The 'Final Report' findings would still provide federal prosecutors with the evidence the committee uncovered, including some that has not yet become public, that could be used as a road map for any prosecution. The January 6 committee is still deciding whether to call some key witnesses, including President Trump, Mike Pence and Virginia Thomas, the wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, who urged Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff at the time, to work to keep Mr. Trump in office.
16Apr2022: Ohio Man Who Blamed Trump for Storming the Capitol is Found Guilty. PDF Dustin Thompson was the first defendant tried for his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack to use a "Trump Made Me Do It" defense in front of a jury. He was convicted on all six charges against him. Thompson, an unemployed exterminator from Columbus, based his entire trial defense on the argument that he had merely been following orders from Mr. Trump last year when he walked up to the Capitol after the former president's speech, broke into the building with a pro-Trump mob and stole the items from the Senate parliamentarian's office.
16Apr2022: Fox News: Professor Victor Davis Hanson: Biden Admin Resembles 'Gimmick of the Week' (~5mins) Professor Hanson suggests 'these guys (Democrats) are incompetently stupid and not so smart as we are'. It's always the gimmick of the week. They have a rendezvous with a disaster in November, and one day it's Putin did it. And then the next day, let's cancel all student debt. And now let's build back the world better because we tried it at home and nobody wanted it. Maybe these guys are not so smart as we are... 16Apr2022: 'Gimmick of the Week'. PDF The obvious question is, OK, let's develop the oil we have at home and the precious metals and minerals and the timber that we're not using. And we can do it more ecologically sound than anybody in the world. People of North Dakota, Texas, Alaska, they're geniuses. Let's use them. And then, we're printing $2 trillion. So the idea is that, "Let's print some more money for people overseas that are dysfunctional societies and let's not spend it here at home."
16Apr2022: Cyberspace and War in Ukraine: Prepare for Worse. PDF Excerpt: The tragedies of the war in Ukraine reveal the enormous economic and human costs of conventional battles involving the Russian military behemoth. Although the risk of an accidental or unwanted war between Russia and NATO is always present and has increased, both sides will want to reduce it. A large coalition of Western and Western-aligned states (such as Japan and South Korea) have levied economic and financial sanctions against Russia. The country is now possibly the most heavily sanctioned nation in the world even more so than North Korea under the reclusive Kim Jong Un's rule. The sanctions go far beyond the targeted financial penalties that the U.S. Treasury Department has applied to individuals and organizations such as the Russian Internet Research Agency, which it deemed responsible for previous hacking activities, or those imposed after the SolarWinds incident.
16Apr2022: Russia Warns U.S. to Stop Arming Ukraine. PDF The formal diplomatic note from Moscow, came as President Biden approved a dramatic expansion in the scope of weapons being provided to the government in Kyiv. Russia this week sent a formal diplomatic note to the United States warning that U.S. and NATO shipments of the "most sensitive" weapons systems to Ukraine were "adding fuel" to the conflict there and could bring "unpredictable consequences." If Russian forces stumble in the next phase of the war as they did in the first, "then I think the chances that Russia targets NATO supplies on NATO territory go up considerably," "There has been an assumption on the part of a lot of us in the West that we could supply the Ukrainians really without limits and not bear significant risk of retaliation from Russia, I think the Russians want to send a message here that that's not true."
16Apr2022: CCP CNN: China Is Sending its Most Advanced Fighter Jet to Patrol Disputed Seas. PDF China has begun sending its most advanced fighter aircraft, the J-20, to patrol the East and South China Seas, Chinese state media has reported. The announcement comes just weeks after United States General Kenneth Wilsbach, the commander of US Pacific Air Forces, said US F-35s and Chinese J-20s came into close proximity with each other over the East China Sea. The East China Sea and South China Sea have both long been contested regions, with overlapping territorial claims by numerous countries. China 'falsely claims' almost all of the vast South China Sea as its sovereign territory. It has been building up and militarizing its facilities there, turning islands into military bases and airstrips, and allegedly creating a maritime militia that could number in the hundreds of boats. Meanwhile in the East China Sea, China claims sovereignty over the Japanese-controlled Senkaku Islands, also known as the Diaoyu Islands. In recent years, the U.S. has reiterated its promise to defend the Japanese islands in the event of foreign aggression. Experts say the deployment of the J-20s shows two things: China's increased confidence in its military abilities, and its warning to other countries with a stake in the territorial dispute.
15Apr2022: Hunter Biden's Laptops Scandal Exposes How Chinese Communists Work. PDF Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop revealed much information, including Hunter's shady business dealings in Ukraine and China, raising questions about the extent to which President Biden was involved in his son's business activities. This ongoing scandal lifted the curtain of foreign governments' covert influence campaigns in the United States. No government has conducted such influence campaigns more effectively than Communist China. To understand China's influence campaigns on foreign soil, one has to get familiar with a secretive Chinese government agency, the United Front Work Department (UFWD), or United Front. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) established UFWD in the 1930s, aiming to recruit famous intellectuals, writers, teachers, students, publishers, and business leaders who were not necessarily Communists. These recruits promoted the CCP's agenda, influenced public opinion in favor of the CCP in territory ruled by the Nationalist Party, and helped the CCP secure the weapons, medicine, and other resources to overthrow the Nationalist-led government. Then-CCP leader Mao Zedong called the United Front a "magic weapon" for the CCP. The UFWD's overseas influence campaigns rely on various methods, including establishing Confucius Institutes and controlling Chinese Students and Scholars Associations on college campuses in the west. But one of its most effective methods is to cultivate politicians, prominent business people, and well-known intellectuals in the west as "friends of China." These "friends" then influence policies and public opinion in their home countries to favor China, while trying to minimize harm to China and silence any criticism of the CCP. This approach is called "influencing the influencers." The UFWD's process of cultivating "friends" usually involves several tactics: UFWD knows how to make them feel important through excessive flattery, lavish trips to China, and access to high-level Chinese government officials. For foreign business elites and families of prominent foreign politicians, the UFWD has made sure they were rewarded financially either through bribes or preferential business terms.
15Apr2022: 7 More House Democrats Can Help Stop The Looming Border Catastrophe. PDF The Biden administration's decision to stop using Title 42 to stem the border traffic tide will precipitate an unprecedented deluge from the Rio Grande Valley to the California coast. It poses a grave national and economic security threat to the United States for one primary reason: it is the battlefield equivalent of laying down one's arms and surrendering in this case, to dangerous cartels. While we should fully reinstate Title 42 protocols, any responsible Congress would also respond to this crisis not by asking for mere "plans" or promises, but by immediately bolstering border security well beyond health codes. The result of Title 42 ending: Thousands more dead Americans from fentanyl, more unknown crossers including terrorists and violent criminals, more destroyed property for ranchers and Americans across the country, more migrants forced into indentured servitude and sex trafficking, and a greater incentive for more migrants around the world to take the dangerous journey. All of it will enrich and empower cartels to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars. Reports indicate we could see roughly 18,000 illegal migrants at our southern border per day without Title 42. We only need seven more signatures to get around House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on this. Instead of pursuing or hiding behind new half measures in the name of "bipartisanship," House Democrats should join with the 211 Republicans ready to force a vote on what works. Further, Title 42 isn't just a Covid protocol. Its use is warranted any time, especially given the large number of diseases our Border Patrol agents encounter daily diseases that are made worse with growing numbers. In just the span of one week without Title 42, we could see well more than 100,000 illegal migrants encountered at our southern border. This many people in consolidated areas will ultimately lead to rampant diseases spread in tight spaces diseases such as Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika viruses, and tuberculosis, to name a few.
15Apr2022: House Republicans Demand Answers from State Attorneys General About 'Shady Trial Lawyer Pipeline'. PDF House Republicans are demanding answers from state attorneys general about the reported "Shady Trial Lawyer Pipeline." The letter, led by House Energy and Commerce Republican Leader Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee Republican Leader Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA), was sent to state attorneys general in Arizona, Missouri, Montana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, and Washington. The following letter comes after recent reports revealed eight law firms donated $15 million to Democrat organizations after they received funds from government contracts: "As leaders on the Energy and Commerce Committee at the U.S. House of Representatives, which is responsible for developing consumer protection laws, we seek to ensure that egregious contracting practices do not deprive victims of appropriate restitution. Your office shares responsibility for protecting consumers, through enforcement of state and federal laws. We believe it is important for Congress to ensure that enforcement agencies, such as yours, have the tools you need to protect consumers in your State." "While we understand the need for certain State offices under certain circumstances to use outside counsel, we have significant concerns that such practice is being abused for political purposes," the letter said. "Thus, we are conducting oversight to gather information to review certain State practices as we continue our work to ensure consumers are prioritized."
15Apr2022: Breitbart Poll: Rising Prices Will Drive Majority of Republican Women to Vote. PDF The poll that was conducted for 'All In Together', a nonprofit women's organization, revealed that a majority of women (54 percent) as a whole are more likely to go out and vote in this year's election because of the rising prices. Republican women are "super-charged" on the issue. Thus, acknowledging that the Democrats' failed policies and lack of successful economic policies to help curb inflation make women want to be more vocal at the polls. But food was not the only problem for American families. Americans saw a substantial rise in energy bills as inflation soared. The overall energy price rose 32 percent compared to a year ago and rose 11.4 percent from February to March of this year alone. Since last March, oil has gone up an astonishing 70.1 percent, up 22.3 percent from February alone. Motor fuel is also up 48.2 percent just in the last 12 months, 19.8 percent from just February.
15Apr2022: 6 US lawmakers arrive in Taiwan for surprise visit, China issues warning Bipartisan group represents one of the most high-level US delegations to visit Taiwan. PDF A bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers flew to Taiwan for an official visit Thursday, defying threats from the Chinese government.mLawmakers from both the House and Senate landed in the country Wednesday morning to a warm welcome from Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen. The Chinese government soon released a statement condemning the visit. The lawmakers visiting were Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Richard Burr of North Carolina, and Rob Portman of Ohio, Republican Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson, and Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez.
The lawmakers are among the most high-level U.S. officials to visit Taiwan. Mainland China argues Taiwan is a rogue region of China and not an independent country. China Accuses Us, Taiwan Officials of "Playing with Fire" with Ukraine Comparisons: "China firmly opposes any form of official interaction between the U.S. and China's Taiwan region," the spokesperson for the Chinese government tweeted. U.S. observers say Russia's invasion may embolden China to take
action on its own.
15Apr2022: Mike Pence: Campus Leftists Are Threatened by Conservatives Because They're 'Not Used to Being Challenged'. PDF Former Vice President Mike Pence spoke about the importance of an active conservative movement in America's education systems. Pence stated that "One of the most important battlefields for the future is on the campuses of our colleges and universities." "The antidote to cancel culture is freedom. The antidote to woke America is freedom," he said. "And I really believe that because of the work that conservatives are doing of traveling around the country, going on to campuses, bringing our message and our agenda of freedom. Freedom starting to win back ground on college and university campuses around the country." When asked what he thought the left was afraid of in hearing his point of view, he said that college campuses had been largely ideologically monolithic for decades, and intellectual confrontation once the cornerstone of a college education was an affront to the status quo.
"Anyone that has looked to higher education in the last 40 years has seen the increasing dominance of left-wing politics, whether it be Marxist economics or socialist policies," he said. "They've really dominated on the college campuses and really become the central guiding philosophy on many campuses."
15Apr2022: Senator Ron Johnson: Biden wouldn't Be President if 'Complicit' Media hadn't Covered Up Family 'Corruption'. PDF Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Thursday emphasized the need for the American people to know the truth behind Hunter Biden's business dealings and the financial ties to his father, President Joe Biden. Johnson argued on Fox News Channel's "America's Newsroom" that the elder Biden wouldn't have been elected president had the "complicit media" not covered up the story behind Hunter Biden's laptop. "When you have investigations into corruption within the public realm; when you're talking about public political figures, we do this backward," Johnson stated. "I think we should start with congressional investigations. We should have full access to all the information. If we see [possibility] of wrongdoing, then we would refer it to the Justice Department. What happens now is the Justice Department starts a criminal investigation and then Congress, which means the American public, get no information whatsoever, even though that information is crucial for the electorate to determine whether or not they want to vote for somebody." He continued, "You've seen the polls. Had the American public known the corruption of Biden, Inc., of Hunter Biden, The Big Guy, Joe Biden would not be president. My guess we probably wouldn't see Vladimir Putin invading Ukraine. The actions taken, the corruption of the complicit media and elements within our law enforcement and intelligence agencies have had an incredibly serious impact on our politics, on elections. They interfered in our elections to an extent that Russia could have ever hope to achieve."
15Apr2022: Ron DeSantis: Extended Mask Mandate 'Is the Biden Equivalent of Continuing the Beatings Until Morale Improves'. PDF The extension of the federal mask mandate for public transportation is based on "more COVID theater" and is "the Biden equivalent of continuing the beatings until morale improves," Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said in a sharp statement on Wednesday. "Biden's extension of the transportation mask mandate simply prolongs the misery that passengers and flight attendants are being forced to endure," the governor said in a statement following the news of federal officials extending the mask requirement for public transportation yet again.
15Apr2022: Rep. Sabatini: Left Having 'Absolute Mental Breakdown' Over Free Speech Being Allowed on Twitter. PDF Following Tesla CEO Elon Musk's recent offer to purchase social media giant Twitter in order to restore free speech across the platform, U.S. congressional candidate and state Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R-FL) accused the left of only supporting free speech "they agree with" while "freaking out" over the possibility of free speech on the right, claiming they are "having an absolute mental breakdown" over Musk's move. "Republicans will never have real power in this country as long as Big Tech continues its hegemonic dominance in the country and our political sphere mainly," he said. "So it's important we do everything we can to fight it."
He then listed those steps that could be taken to fight back. "I think there are some important legal things we need to do like pushing forward common carrier legislation, yanking section 230 protection for these companies and of course going as far as breaking up Big Tech into smaller independent pieces. I think that's an important step to take. "But I think there are other asymmetric things we need to be encouraging, including getting conservatives to come up with alternatives to these dominant sites," he added. Sabatini expressed approval for Musk's offer, adding it could prove a "major step" in the struggle for free speech. "Of course, it's great to see what Elon Musk is doing,' he said. "This is just like an anomaly if we could have really a purist free speech advocate just simply outright buy one of these companies, which is sort of unimaginable, that's also really a major step forward in restoring free speech in this country." Sabatini also claimed liberals "really hate free speech." "They think free speech is truly the biggest problem in America today that people are able to say what they want, think what they want to, feel what they want," he said. The Florida Republican accused the left of intimidating people to adopt the "correct" opinions. "If you don't have the 'correct' views, 'correct' opinions politically correct, that is their version of correct then you're in for a dangerous spot," he said. "We're going in a dangerous direction, so it's just a power game." Attributing former President Donald Trump's 2016 victory to "a free flow of information," Sabatini expressed his belief there was "massive, massive election interference." "I think the 2020 election was stolen but I also think it would've been impossible for them to steal it if Big Tech did not play the role it played independent of everything else that happened regarding the election," he said. "So, I think when you have a free speech culture in the country again, Big Tech stepping out of the way, I think Donald Trump-affiliated candidates are going to surge," he added. He then accused Big tech of being "the biggest interference in American elections in the country today." "The left is freaking out because we're going back to 2016 when people could talk openly about Clinton corruption etc. like they were not able to do in the 2020 election, where things were shadow banned, taken down and removed and distorted," he said. "The things the left always accuse others of are the exact practices in which they are engaged," he added. "And in this case manipulation and choking off of information is what they are engaged in."
15Apr2022: GOP Rep. Roy: Democrats 'Using Immigrants as Props'. PDF Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) criticized elected Democrats for being unresponsive to the crisis at the U.S. Mexico border. The Texas Republican lawmaker took issue with Gov. Greg Abbott's (R- TX) detractors, who are upset about illegal immigrants being bussed to Washington, D.C. According to Roy, it was the Democrats who were using immigrants "as props." "Well, it's pretty rich coming from Democrats who've been using immigrants as props for their own crass political purposes," he said. "While migrants get abused, get put into the sex trafficking trade, while cartels get empowered, while Texans get run over? That's Democrats' whole shtick using immigrants as props. "And Governor Abbott is trying to do the job that the president of the United States and Secretary Mayorkas is supposed to be doing," Roy continued. "And so, you know, I'm glad that the governor is bringing attention to it. I'm glad that the governor is bringing attention to what we have to deal with by having the vehicle inspections and causing people to have to wake up to what happens at our border. "And so, the only metric that I'm going to be grading anybody on how this works out is whether or not we stop the flow of traffic at the border and secure our border for Texans and for Americans so that we're not having fentanyl pour into our schools and having people get abused and hurt whether they're migrants or Americans," he added.
14Apr2022: RNC Withdraws From CPD Commission On Presidential Debates Over 'Biased' Commission's Refusal To Play Fair. PDF
It's official: The RNC Republican National Committee unanimously voted to withdraw from the "biased" Commission on Presidential Debates over the organization's refusal to offer Americans a "free and fair forum" to evaluate presidential candidates. "To be clear: we are not walking away from debates. We are walking away from the CPD," the RNC said in a statement. The decision comes after a year long rule change battle between the CPD, which repeatedly refused to adopt the RNC's list of debate reforms, and the RNC, which accused the commission of deliberately failing to "provide a fair and impartial forum." The CPD has a history of favoring Democrats by naming left-wing journalists as moderators who happily hijack Republican candidates' talking time. In the 2020 election cycle, the CPD chose Fox News's Chris Wallace, who asked slanted questions favoring Biden, and Steve Scully, who incompetently tweeted a private conversation he had with a notable anti-Trumper and then falsely claimed he was hacked.
14Apr2022: Alabama Beefs Up Election Security With Zuckbucks Ban. PDF Alabama is the latest state to pass legislation that will bar local and state election officials from accepting and using private funding for election operations, with Republican Gov. Kay Ivey signing the bill into law on Wednesday.
Passed overwhelmingly in the state House and Senate, the measure (HB194) seeks to "prohibit certain public officials responsible for the conduct of an election, or their employees, from soliciting, accepting, or using certain donations from an individual or nongovernmental entity for the purpose of funding certain election-related expenses."
14Apr2022: The Left Is Freaking Out Over Elon Musk Because Twitter Rigs The Game For Democrats. PDF Mega-billionaire Elon Musk wants to buy out Twitter, and leftists are freaking out at the thought of their censorship regime potentially being on the brink of destruction. Twitter employees were already panicked at the possibility of Musk joining the company's board. Now, many are publicly hyperventilating as they face completely losing their grip on a platform they can use to nuke their political enemies for saying a 'man is a man'.
14Apr2022: "We've Done Fucking Horrible": Democrats Blame 'Messaging' for Failures. PDF Democrats, who have continuously had messaging problems through the current election cycle, have now blamed messaging itself for their failures months before the general election. Democrats across the country are claiming they have "done a lousy job at highlighting their accomplishments in a year plus of unified power in Washington" and are using that as the source of their problems leading up to the November midterm elections, according to the Hill. In fact, the Democrats believe they are in so much trouble that one strategist told the Hill, "I'm not going to BS. We've done a fucking horrible job, and sometimes I think we deserve to lose big in November. Democrats can say whatever they want, but it's not honest." The strategist added that the Democrats "need to wake up fast" because they don't have a narrative to push. Even Hillary Clinton, who knows about failing when she lost against former President Donald Trump in 2016 and is rumored to be making a return, said her party needs to get better at touting accomplishments. Earlier this month, Clinton said, "I'm not quite sure what the disconnect is between the accomplishments of the administration, and this Congress, and the understanding of what's been done, and the impact it will have on the American public."

13Apr2022: Senate Judiciary Committee - Democrat Majority Staff Final Report: "How the Former President and His Allies Pressured DOJ to Overturn the 2020 Election." (394 pages) PDF Summary Excerpt: Finding 1: President Trump repeatedly asked DOJ leadership to endorse his false claims that the election was stolen and to assist his efforts to overturn the election results, Finding 2: White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows asked Acting Attorney General Rosen to initiate election fraud investigations on multiple occasions, violating longstanding restrictions on White House-DOJ communications about specific law-enforcement matters, Finding 3: After personally meeting with Trump, Jeffrey Bossert Clark pushed Rosen and Donoghue to assist Trump's election subversion scheme and told Rosen he would decline Trump's potential offer to install him as Acting Attorney General if Rosen agreed to aid that scheme, Finding 4: Trump allies with links to the "Stop the Steal" movement and the January 6 insurrection participated in the pressure campaign against DOJ, Finding 5: Trump forced the resignation of U.S. Attorney Byung Jin ("BJay") Pak, whom he believed was not doing enough to address false claims of election fraud in Georgia. Trump then went outside the line of succession when naming an Acting U.S. Attorney, bypassing First Assistant U.S. Attorney Kurt Erskine and instead appointing Bobby Christine because he believed Christine would "do something" about his election fraud claims, Finding 6: By pursuing false claims of election fraud before votes were certified, DOJ deviated from longstanding practice meant to avoid inserting DOJ itself as an issue in the election. Report Summary: The Committee's investigation to date underscores how Trump's efforts to use DOJ as a means to overturn the election results was part of his interrelated efforts to retain the presidency by any means necessary. As has been well-documented by other sources, Trump's efforts to lay the foundation of the "Big Lie" preceded the general election by several months; Attorney General Barr inserted DOJ into that initial effort through various public remarks and actions prior to November 3, 2020 that cast doubt on voting by mail procedures implemented to facilitate exercise of the franchise during the worst public health crisis in a century. Concurrent with Trump's post-election attempts to weaponize DOJ, Trump also reportedly engaged in a separate and equally aggressive pressure campaign on Vice President Mike Pence to set aside the electoral votes of contested states. This "back-up plan," as it were, culminated on January 4 one day after Clark's final attempt to wrest control of DOJ from Rosen, and again in the Oval Office when Trump and outside attorney John Eastman attempted to convince Pence that he could circumvent the certification through a procedural loophole in the Electoral Count Act.7 All of these efforts, in turn, created the disinformation ecosystem necessary for Trump to incite almost 1,000 Americans to breach the Capitol in a violent attempt to subvert democracy by stopping the certification of a free and fair election.
13Apr2022: The Feds Are So Desperate For Violent 'White Supremacy,' They're Fabricating It. PDF Federalist: Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas declared white supremacists and "domestic violent extremism" to be the "most prominent threat" currently facing our country. The timing could not have been more perfect. Just hours later, a jury in Grand Rapids, Michigan exposed the Justice Department's largest alleged "domestic terrorism" case of the last 18 months as a failed FBI entrapment scheme to smear 'Trump Conservatives as White Supremacists" ahead of the 2020 election. By refusing to convict four men accused of plotting to kidnap and kill Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer before Election Day 2020, the Grand Rapids jury seemed to side with defense attorneys who argued their clients were not domestic terrorists, but entrapped by undercover FBI agents and at least a dozen informants who planned and funded the kidnapping operation. Needing Terrorists to Justify Counterterrorism: The FBI's governor-kidnaping hoax demonstrates just how serious federal law enforcement agencies are about pursuing domestic extremists, even if it means the alleged threat originates in Washington, D.C. or FBI field offices.
13Apr2022: Mark Zuckerberg Claims His Foundation Won't Meddle in Next Election After Backlash. PDF The Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL), which Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan notoriously poured hundreds of millions of "Zuckerbucks" into for the purpose of getting out the vote in Democrat-leaning areas in the 2020 election, claims it won't repeat the process for the 2022 midterms. "As Mark and Priscilla made clear previously, their election infrastructure donation to help ensure that Americans could vote during the height of the pandemic was a one-time donation given the unprecedented nature of the crisis," said Labolt. "They have no plans to repeat that donation."
13Apr2022: They Are Going To Expunge (President Trump's) First Impeachment! PDF Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) introduced a resolution to expunge former President Donald Trump's first impeachment. Rep. Mullin says that he believes President Trump's impeachment case was "an unimaginable abuse of our Constitution." According to the congressman, the resolution is meant to "confront the political absurdities on which" Trump's impeachment was based.
13Apr2022: Another Turncoat RINO 'Karl Rove' Emerges from the Depths of the Swamp. PDF Yet another turncoat RINO has emerged from the depths of the swamp to "criticize" the Republican Party for January 6th. Republican strategist and former member of the George W. Bush administration Karl Rove eagerly stepped forward from the depths of the swamp to write an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal calling out Republicans for standing up for the political prisoners of January 6th. "These apologists say those who stormed the Capitol were innocent patriots, tourists visiting the seat of the national government to petition their elected representatives peacefully. We're told that these harmless, ordinary Americans are being persecuted as political prisoners," Rove said in the piece, which was published by the Wall Street Journal on January 6. The protest was intended to be peaceful, and was instigated into violence by a few bad actors some of whom were likely feds (Ray Epps) who should be punished. Those who followed those bad actors into violence using bad judgement should also be punished. But, there is also footage showing that the vast majority of people who entered the Capitol building that day were peaceful, and many of them were let in by the Capitol Police, who held the door open for them as they walked in, looking more like a guided tour than a siege. Regardless of which category the January 6th detainees fall into, there is evidence they are being held in inhumane conditions.
13Apr2022: Everyone Else Regrets Voting For Biden, But Not Female College Grads. PDF NBC News recently compared several polls to find huge shifts from Democrats to Republicans in 2022 midterm voter preferences. The big exception to these shifts across many demographics was college-educated women, who in NBC's aggregation showed even stronger support for Democrats now than ahead of the last midterm election. "[T]he gender gap between Democrats and Republicans is actually a marriage gap." "Single women vote disproportionately for Democrats and married women vote by a comfortable margin for Republicans. The decline of marriage inclines more women to vote Democrat." American society seems to be reducing marriage and childbearing as a whole, but this seems to affect Democrat voters more: "since COVID-19 hit, Republicans have witnessed a greater increase in their desire to marry than Democrats and Independents." Republicans were the only political group that responded to Covid with a greater desire for children. So singlehood, a general predictor among women of increased vote share for Democrats, is rising, a trend that is likely to increase. Although we don't have the underlying polling numbers to confirm this, it seems likely this is a large explanatory factor for the college-educated women increasing support for Democrats.
13Apr2022: How Biden Is Using Wokeness to Destroy The U.S. Military. PDF A Republican congressional candidate is calling out Joe Biden for using wokeness to destroy the United States military. As Russian President Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine continues to spark fears of World War III, a retired Marine colonel running for Congress is calling out the Biden administration's continued efforts to radically transform the military into a "woke" force. Republican congressional candidate Mitchell Swan, a retired Marine Corps colonel running for a seat in Georgia, took aim at the Biden administration for indoctrinating Marines in controversial transgender ideology. Retired USMC Col. Mitchell Swan unloaded on Joe Biden and his top military leaders for their focus on wokeness in the armed forces, which some have suggested adversely affects morale as well as distracts from the military's primary mission of fighting wars in order to preserve the American way of life. "The biggest European land war since World War II, and where is our military focused? Gender dysphoria and woke training," Swan states. "Putin's reviewing nuclear options while we assess transgender therapy options," Swan continues. "As a retired colonel who led Marines overseas, I know that this woke indoctrination will destroy our military, and that's why I oppose transgenders in our ranks."
13Apr2022: America is still paying the price for Hillary Clinton's treachery. PDF However this era of angry polarization, crime and violence ends, it will be left to historians to decipher how America got so far off track. Instead of building on our unprecedented prosperity and role as the world's ultimate superpower, we declared war cultural, political and social on each other. Even our nation's Founders are not spared. The reasons will be better understood in hindsight, but it's hard to believe the 2016 presidential campaign won't be seen as an inflection point. Our move toward disunion didn't begin then, but it certainly gained steam and vitriol during and after the election of Donald Trump. Two recent developments illustrate how that campaign remains a radioactive hot spot. With both developments centering on Hillary Clinton, they underscore her role and the depths of her venality.
Just when you think you've seen the worst of her, proof emerges that she was even more duplicitous than we knew. The first evidence came in a little noticed decision from the Federal Election Commission. It ruled on a complaint from the Coolidge Reagan Foundation that Clinton and the Democratic National Committee violated federal law by hiding how they funded the odious Christopher Steele dossier, perhaps the most destructive disinformation document in United States history. The FBI was also complicit, using the dossier as a crutch to justify its unjustifiable spying on a presidential campaign. A remaining question is, under Jim Comey's leadership, was the FBI the dumbest ever or the most venal? This second scam had Sussmann, a tech executive and the same smear merchants try to sell the FBI on a concocted story about a Trump computer secretly communicating with a Russian bank. Clinton lost the election and Robert Mueller's special counsel probe came up empty, yet the collusion narrative lives on among major elements of the political left. To judge from the tumultuous years since, many of those who subscribe to her lie are using it as a license to try to destroy America.
13Apr2022: Hillary Clinton Repeatedly Denies Knowing Democrat Operative Linked to Inciting Violence at Trump Rallies Following Veritas Legal Victory. PDF Project Veritas has published video of former Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton repeatedly denying knowledge of the story of a woman who was recently ordered to pay Project Veritas' legal costs from a defamation suit stemming from a 2016 investigation the group Democracy Partners which organized on her behalf. After Project Veritas published its investigation into Democracy Partners which revealed the group was responsible for inciting violence at Trump rallies. 13Apr2022: Hillary Clinton Denies Knowing Democrat Operative Linked to Inciting Violence at Trump Rallies.

13Apr2022: Corrupt Biden
Family Business Could Destroy Democrats in Midterms. PDF A former adviser to Bill Clinton, Doug Schoen, said the corrupt Biden family business could sink the Democrats', the Biden family business is "rapidly developing" into a huge scandal that "threatens to spill over into becoming a mainstream election issue;" with minimal chances of Democrats retaining the House and Senate in 2022. Democrats have already lost the momentum to Republicans, as polls show the GOP with leads on enthusiasm, topical issues, and the generic ballot. Congressional Democrats have been crushed by the weight of Biden's 40-year-high inflation, supply chain woes, border crisis, and soaring crime.
13Apr2022: Peter Schweizer: How U.S. Commerce Department Officials Cashed In on China. PDF Republicans and Democrats in Washington don't agree on much these days. Except, it seems, when it comes to leveraging your position as secretary of an overlooked federal agency for personal enrichment.
A new report by the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), entitled "Department of Cronyism: Inside Deals, Conflicts of Interest and Chinese Connections," exposes the vast opportunities for cronyism and corruption within the U.S. Department of Commerce and the people who have taken advantage of it. The report documented the existence of ties to China with President Joe Biden's choice for commerce secretary, Gina Raimondo. The report provides support for the concept of "elite capture" the explicit strategy on the part of the foreign countries like China to forge connections to the levers of power in various U.S. institutions to ensure favorable treatment.
13Apr2022: Don't believe any of what China says about Putin's Ukraine war. PDF Beijing is pretending to play neutral on Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine, but the giveaway is how the Chinese Communist Party has the entirely state-controlled media echoing Russia's propaganda. The orders plainly went out as a quickly deleted message on Horizon News, a social media account under Beijing News, accidentally revealed: "No posts unfavorable to Russia or with pro-Western content should be published." Chinese networks amplified Russian disinformation, quoting Russian officials' false claims that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had fled the capital and that Ukrainian soldiers surrendered on the invasion's first day. Beijing has refused to condemn the invasion at all, instead asserting that the United States and NATO are at fault for Putin's war. Xi Jinping even told President Joe Biden that the US and NATO are "the crux" of the problem. Meanwhile, Ukraine's security service, the SBU, says China is to blame for a major pre-invasion cyberattack on Ukraine's military and nuclear facilities, with thousands of hacking attempts on 600-plus Web sites belonging to the defense ministry in Kyiv and other institutions. For now at least, the invasion has awoken the West to Putin's true nature. But the world still needs to admit that Xi is every bit as much an evil enemy of civilization.
13Apr2022: Zelenskyy Goes Full in on WW3. PDF Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned that if peace talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin fail, it will mark the start of "a third World War." The Ukrainian president went on to say that he would try any method of negotiation that would bring about an end to the conflict, but also noted that if it didn't come to an end through negotiation, the conflict would lead to something much worse. The Ukrainian president went on to lament the ongoing loss of life being caused by the invasion. "In any case we are losing people on a daily basis, innocent people on the ground. Russian forces have come to exterminate us, and to kill us," Zelenskyy said.
12Apr2022: Breitbart: Donald Trump is the Democrat Left's Real Leader because their Hatred 'Unified Them'. PDF Acclaimed Glengarry Glen Ross playwright and Wag the Dog screenwriter David Mamet told Breitbart News he believes that Donald Trump is the political left's true leader because their hatred of the former president has "unified them." "How can this many people be galvanized without a leader on whom to heap their devotion? I realized they did have a leader on whom to heap their devotion, but it was a devotion to murdering him, and it was Donald Trump," he said. "Why is his name constantly in your mouth? It's because it unified them." Mamet goes on to explain that the left's groupthink and mob mentality stifles free speech and threatens democracy. The woke mob wants to stamp out free thought. "If you're part of a mob it means I give up my individuality, I get all my meaning from the mob whatever it is, my sexual identity, my racial identity, my political identity," he said. "That's the only thing that's important, rather than individual identity." He added: "There's only one way to achieve excellence in the mob, and that's by being more outrageous than everybody around you. So that's why the mob grows in fury because they keep pushing each other in search of status and power. They keep pushing farther and farther to the left."
12Apr2022: Fox News Tucker Carlson: DNC Democrats Have Decided To Eliminate Joe Biden - Obama Disrespects Biden at White House Party, and DNC "Hive Mind" Media Press Corps Turns on Biden. (~11mins)
12Apr2022: Breitbart: Democrats Prepare to Dump Joe Biden Now He's Served His Purpose. PDF The question of Joe Biden's future "need(s) to be discussed candidly, not just whispered constantly." At the same time, can we also ask the other obvious question candidly? Why did the media cover for an elderly septuagenarian with clear age related issues, thrusting him into a job he was never truly capable of holding and subjecting the nation to a dangerous period without a strong leader? It's fine to have a mea culpa moment, and truth delivered late is better than truth denied forever, but as the nation stumbles along with a puppet president there should be some accountability. Americans who voted for Biden, they're now being told it didn't work out. Sorry. It's coming within the timeframe of the traditional presidential "honeymoon," that brief period presidents are normally at their zenith of political power and brimming to pass a bold agenda. The establishment Democrats wanted Joe, and they selected him, despite his age and numerous warning signs regarding his mental acuity. He was the blank canvas on which anything could be written, and he could be sold as a "moderate." With a lot of help from a sycophantic media, Biden was elected president of the United States, without serious inquiry regarding his physical and mental abilities. Now, suddenly, it's time to plan Joe's exit before the new Oval Office carpet has fully settled in place? His collapse in the polls is why Joe is suddenly being challenged on the question of running again, and despite Chuck Todd's protestations, it can't be blamed on Trump. It turns out that the public is a bit smarter than Democrats guessed. Reading prepared speeches from a teleprompter is not a substitute for leadership. Neither is putting one's head down on the presidential podium like a child in the face of tough questions about a military failure in Afghanistan. The blame game can only get a president so far. Stripped of his dignity, he has become a caricature of a president, adorned with all of the symbols of the office, but lacking the substance necessary to perform. Every Trump voter can still name his key issues: closing the border, beating China, restoring American jobs, making America energy independent, and above all, to "Make America Great Again." Less than a year into his presidency, it's hard to recall Biden standing strongly for anything in particular, having served more as an official signer of Obama's policy goals for leftist special interest groups than for his own agenda.
12Apr2022: Breitbart: Grassley: 'Enough Evidence' to Legitimately Question if Joe Biden is Compromised by Chinese. PDF Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said on Fox News Channel's "Jesse Watters Primetime" that he had "enough evidence" to warrant an investigation into if President Joe Biden is compromised by his son Hunter Biden's business dealings in China.
12Apr2022: Breitbart: Republican-Aligned Governor Group Breaks Fundraising Record with $33.1 Million in Q1, Outpacing Democrats. PDF The Republican Governors Association (RGA), a group aimed at helping Republican governors get elected, announced a record $33.1 million raised in the first quarter, outpacing its Democrat counterpart by $10 million. The RGA announced Monday they were able to raise the $33.1 million across all entities in the first three months of 2022, which subsequently passed the fundraising totals from the same point in the 2018 midterm election cycle by 40 percent. As a result, RGA's Executive Director Dave Rexrode said, "Joe Biden's out-of-control border crisis, repeated foreign policy failures, and leftist agenda that has caused skyrocketing inflation are top of mind for every American voter." "They are seeing the impact of Democratic leadership in Washington and state capitols and don't like it and are ready for a change," Rexrode added. "This record-setting first quarter equips the RGA with the resources necessary to highlight Democrats' failures and support our Republican incumbents and candidates across the country." In comparison, the Democrat Governors Association (DGA), the group aimed at helping Democrat governors get elected, only raised $23.25 million in the same amount of time across all its entities. The DGA considered its fundraising haul record-shattering since it was its largest first-quarter fundraising in history.
12Apr2022: AP: Poland Asserts 2010 Plane Crash That Killed President, Top Generals, was Russian Attack. PDF WARSAW, Poland (AP) - A Polish government special commission has reinforced its earlier allegations that the 2010 plane crash that killed President Lech Kaczynski and 95 others in Russia was the result of Moscow's assassination plan. The latest of the commission's reports, released Monday, alleges that an intentional detonation of planted explosives caused the April 10, 2010 crash of Soviet-made TU-154M plane that killed Kaczynski, the first lady and 94 other government and armed forces figures as well as many prominent Poles. Their deaths were the result of an "act of unlawful interference by the Russian side," the commission's head Antoni Macierewicz told a news conference. "The main and indisputable proof of the interference was an explosion in the left wing ... followed by an explosion in the plane's center," said Macierewicz, who in 2015-2018 served as defense minister in Poland's right-wing government. He denied that any mistakes were made by the Polish pilots or crew members, despite bad weather at the time of the crash.
12Apr2022: Breitbart: Disgraced Former CIA Chief John Brennan Joins 'Secretive' Firm Staffing Biden White House. PDF John O. Brennan, the former CIA director whose security clearance was revoked by President Donald Trump, has joined the WestExec Advisors, a "secretive consulting firm" whose alumni hold posts throughout President Joe Biden's administration. The firm, described as "Biden's Cabinet in waiting" by Politico after the 2020 presidential election, employed Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines, White House press secretary Jen Psaki, and many others. Politico noted: "WestExec is loaded with other former top Democratic national security and foreign policy officials who raised money for the Biden campaign, have joined his transition team, or have served as unofficial advisers." In a press statement Monday, WestExec announced: "John O. Brennan has joined the firm's distinguished and growing team as Principal. As Principal at WestExec, he will advise on strategy and geopolitical risk, and help clients capitalize on key business opportunities and navigate the world's most pressing challenges." He is described as an "exceptional public servant." Throughout the Trump presidency, Brennan expressed outrage at the new administration, calling Trump's press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki in 2018 "nothing short of treasonous" after Trump publicly doubted the U.S. intelligence committee's conclusion that Russia had interfered in the 2016 election.
11Apr2022: Federalist: Trump Was Impeached For 'Inciting A Riot'. Now Jan. 6 Committee Claims It Was Planned. PDF In a rare moment of focus on the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot, the House Select Committee recently took a break from prosecuting political dissidents to claim the violent protest was premeditated. Yet House Democrats impeached Donald Trump on Jan. 13, 2021 on the basis of claiming that riot was spontaneously triggered by the president's speech at the White House that day despite the first violent action occurring before Trump finished speaking. "The president of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack," GOP Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney said. "Everything that followed was his doing." The notion of a coordinated assault on the Capitol undermines Democrats' claim that Trump and White House staff were solely responsible for the outburst that ensued on congressional grounds. The Jan. 6 Committee's narrative switching ahead of show trial hearings in prime time comes after its conspiracy of a Trump concocted plan to disband Congress has failed to garner traction among an electorate more worried about gas prices and inflation than a two-hour riot more than a year ago. Democrats on the Jan. 6 Committee admitted last month the probe is all about the midterms, and they are openly executing a "digital Watergate" with demands for private records to harass and demean their political opponents.
11Apr2022: Federalist: Pennsylvania Testimony Explains How Leftist Money Infiltrated Elections In 2020. PDF The Democrat governor's office in Pennsylvania colluded with left-wing activists to secure millions of dollars in private money to run 'get out the vote' efforts in blue counties in the swing state in 2020, new, explosive testimony revealed. The Pennsylvania legislature heard this testimony, backed up by email evidence, on Tuesday during the first public hearing on two new bills seeking to block private grants. The bills seek to ban 'dark money' from elections. Far from being an outlier, Pennsylvania's experience matches the growing evidence seen in other states that the Zuckbucks and other leftist money funded state-run get-out-the-vote efforts for Biden. What makes Pennsylvania different, however, is that the emails connect the grant process to government actors and show the state's collaboration with left-wing political activists to lobby Democrat-only counties. This evidence raises constitutional concerns under the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Evidence shows that Philadelphia and other Democrat strongholds illegally engaged in pre-canvasing activities by inspecting mail-in ballots before election day. Whistleblower videos have exposed extensive evidence of systemic problems with the 2020 election in the large Pennsylvania county, including violations of election law and potentially corruption and fraud. The whistleblower videos in Delaware County also captured election workers discussing the fact that some of the voting machines were missing 'V-drives', or the removable memory drive that records the vote tallies, and conversing on how to recreate the missing data, which a later video confirmed the county did.
11Apr2022: Federalist: Biden's Lack Of Strategy On Ukraine Shows He's Got None For U.S. Either. PDF Biden has no plan for Ukraine, and no overarching national security strategy for the United States. Some fault Biden for not doing more to help the Ukrainians, some for doing too much and risking open war with a nuclear power. What these critics should share, though, is the belief that Biden's contradictory signals over the past month halfhearted and constantly shifting military aid to Ukraine, the absence of any off-ramps for Russia, total economic war on Moscow, virtually no effort to facilitate or encourage negotiations have been perhaps more dangerous than any clear and consistent policy might have been. The Biden Admin is "suddenly shifting focus from a U.S. defense strategy that had eyes on China." Shifting our focus from China is one thing we should not do. The war in Ukraine has underscored the need for a clear-eyed assessment of what the United States can and can't do overseas, and what the national interests really are. We can condemn Moscow's predation on its neighbor and work to ease the suffering of the Ukrainian people while also recognizing that our great security challenges aren't in eastern Europe but in the Asian Pacific. We need not just a defense strategy to contain China but an economic strategy as well. That includes policies aimed at U.S. corporations that do business in China, allies that trade with China, and indeed a wholesale reassessment of global trade and global supply chains.
11Apr2022: Breitbart: Blue State Blues: The Radical Black Feminist Who Became a Trump Supporter. PDF Excerpt: Rhoda Kadalie is a black feminist who was active in the struggle against apartheid, served in President Nelson Mandela's administration on South Africa's Human Rights Commission, and worked with George Soros to fund development projects in poor communities. Now living in Los Angeles, Rhoda was also an early supporter of President Donald Trump, and remains so today. Her journey holds lessons for a nation still wrestling with race and democracy. A close observer of American politics, Rhoda was skeptical of the rise of Barack Obama, seeing him as largely an empty shell. When then Sen. Obama (D-IL) visited Cape Town and delivered a speech, she declined to attend, on principle. Few foresaw, as she did, that his presidency would end in disappointment. Conversely, Rhoda took an interest in Donald Trump, seeing him as a skollie - a "ruffian," in South African slang who would shake up a complacent American establishment. The chaos of the 2020 election left her disillusioned about American democracy, but she sees hope in the ongoing anti-"woke" backlash. Her remarkable journey teaches that a true love of liberty transcends the categories that often confine our political thinking.

9Apr2022: Professor Victor Davis Hanson: Can Ukraine Ever Win? PDF Excerpt: The interests of Europe and the United States are not quite the same as those of a beleaguered Ukraine. NATO also wants Vladimir Putin humiliated, but only if the war can be confined within the borders of Ukraine. The West seeks a resounding reaffirmation for the supposed "rules based international order" that prevents aggressive invasions across national borders-but not at the price of a nuclear exchange. So to accomplish those grand agendas, the West restricts some of its generous supplies to Ukraine. It sends plenty of lethal weapons as long as some of them will not provoke a losing Russia into doing something stupid, like resorting to tactical nuclear weapons to save face. The longer the war goes on, the more sanctions will hurt the Russian economy and insidiously undermine Russian public support for the war. Instead, Russia is going full Carthaginian peace in Eastern Ukraine leveling cities, murdering civilians, and destroying an entire modern society for generations. Putin's strategy is now paradoxically much simpler and harder to stop. He will claim victory by institutionalizing Vichy-like Russian states in the Donbass region and Crimea. In the meantime his air attacks will render Eastern Ukraine an inert wasteland that will require decades to rebuild. Putin is now warring against the supply chain of all of Europe and the United States and all out of his reach...
8Apr2022: Trump Turns Tables - The Former President Was Harmed By His Opponents' Willful Lies. PDF Late last month, Donald Trump filed suit against the conspirators who conceived and propagated the falsehood that he had colluded with the Russians to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Like most of Trump's ventures, the suit is ambitious, even grandiose. Trump is suing, among others, Hillary Clinton, the DNC, Marc Elias, the international law firm Perkins Cole, Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, ABC, and other yet to be named media corporations. He is suing them for, among other things, injurious falsehood, computer fraud, theft of trade secrets, malicious prosecution, and violation of the RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) act.
8Apr2022: Arizona Attorney General: Election Fraud In Maricopa 'Raises Questions' About 2020. PDF A blockbuster review of Maricopa County's mismanaged 2020 election by Arizona's attorney general is raising new questions about the final vote in a state former President Donald Trump was expected to win but lost to Joe Biden by 10,457 ballots. "We have reached the conclusion that the 2020 election in Maricopa County revealed serious vulnerabilities that must be addressed and raises questions about the 2020 election in Arizona," said an "interim report" issued today by Attorney General Mark Brnovich. The 12-page report, reviewed by Secrets, did not condemn the county's handling of the election outright but raised enough questions about voter identification, ballot handling, and counting to prompt Brnovich to call for a vast tightening of the rules.
8Apr2022: Wokeness Works, Until It Doesn't. PDF Contrary to what many expected, when campus radicals entered the real world, they changed it. And so Wall Street and Big Business have gone woke, with rainbow flags and Black Lives Matter banners and critical race theory as a routine part of employee training. The right-wing expectation that businesses that "go woke, go broke" has fallen flat. A few corporations have taken a hit to the bottom line, but most have found that going woke is just fine for business. More importantly, going woke has pacified much of the left; a BLM donation and a Pride sponsorship cover a multitude of corporate sins, functioning like secular indulgences. Instead of trying to break Big Business in the name of economic justice, the left has embraced it as an ally in the fight for its ideals of social justice. This shift from economic concerns to race, sex, and gender has been part of the Democrats' abandonment of blue-collar voters in pursuit of educated professionals. Democrats, and the Biden administration in particular, aren't going to attack Big Business, because it is now an essential part of their base. Wokeness allowed Big Business to have its cake and eat it too. Republicans remained solicitous of business interests, while Democrats were eager to work with their new corporate partners. But in the long run, woke capital could easily find itself in a two-front war, with socialists on one side and right-wing populists on the other.
8Apr2022: A Democratic Biased Look at the Second Coming of Donald Trump and Trump Endorsed AZ Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake (~21mins) Trump has made a career out of being unorthodox, and the more unpredictable he is, it seems the more his supporters love him. So much so, Donald Trump is now seriously considering another tilt at the White House. And if you thought it was a wild ride last time he was the leader of the free world, you ain't seen nothin' yet.
7Apr2022: Federalist: Federal Judge Finds Jan. 6 Defendant Not Guilty, Nuking DOJ Charges That Walking Through An Open Door Is A Crime. PDF A federal judge found a Jan. 6 defendant who entered the Capitol not guilty on all charges after he said he was waved in by two Capitol Police officers. The decision lays down the groundwork to push back against the Department of Justice's charge that the hundreds of people on Capitol grounds on Jan. 6, 2021 deserve to be punished. U.S. District Court Judge Trevor McFadden acquitted Matthew Martin of all misdemeanor charges on Wednesday after he said it was "plausible that the defendant reasonably believed he had permission to be in the Capitol." "Martin did not break the law," the defendant's lawyer stated. "And we had the benefit of a lot of video evidence, and the judge had a chance to see it. And video evidence is the best evidence, and he did nothing wrong."
7Apr2022: Federalist: Jan. 6 Committee Follows The Pattern Of The Evil John Doe Investigation. PDF Fifteen months after Congress certified the 2020 election, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's hand-picked 'unselect' Jan. 6 commission is still forging ahead with partisan theater. The committee has seized bank records of peaceful protesters, routinely made up evidence to tarnish Republican leaders, spied on federal lawmakers' phone records, threatened press freedom, and is now admittedly trying to criminalize GOP's fundraising on the issue of election security. The Jan. 6 committee has the same effect. Following what was the most problematic election in our country's history - thanks to Big Tech's censorship of conservative leaders and information that might harm Democrats in the run-up to the election, states breaking or changing voting laws last-minute to accommodate mass mail-in voting, the press propagandizing 24/7 for Democrats and against Republicans, and Mark Zuckerberg dumping massive funds into left-wing groups to take over government elections offices - the Jan. 6 committee is squashing election-security efforts by threatening those who question that 2020 was 100 percent free and fair.
7Apr2022: Trump Approved National Guard Troops for D.C. on January 6, Democrats Said No! PDF Excerpt: The Democrat-run January 6 Committee is at full boil. It demands records, testimony, and even contempt-of-Congress charges against a host of Trump Administration officials, including advisors Peter Navarro and Dan Scavino. Its Trump-obsessed members believe they are close to proving that their much-loathed "Donald Trump" ordered the January 6 riot as a citizen-fueled, America First, coup d'etat, represents an "existential constitutional crisis"; thus Trump must be charged with "inciting an insurrection" under Section 3 of the 14th amendment, forever disqualifying him from running for future political office.

PDF Summary Excerpt: All reports indicate that Republicans are going to clean house at the ballot box this November, in an indictment of the Biden administration and Democrat-led Congress's failures over the past two years. But all hope is not lost for the incumbent party. Here's a helpful crash course in all the things Democrats should definitely be doing between now and November to reclaim their legitimacy as a party and win voters' hearts: 1. Put Grooming Kids at the Center of Your Platform, 2. Keep Raising Gas Prices, 3. Tell Parents They Don't Matter, 4. Keep Telling Everyone They're Racists and/or Victims, 5. No Really, Keep Trying to Abolish the Police, 6. Start More Nuclear Wars, and finally 7. Call All of Your Opponents White Supremacists.
7Apr2022: Federalist: More Receipts Show Depth Of Biden Family Profiteering With Foreign Enemies and Chinese Spy Chiefs. PDF Republican Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin released new documents on Monday indicating that President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden and his brother James Biden were extensively involved with and profited from business deals with companies that operate on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and other corrupt regimes.
7Apr2022: Federalist: No Future For Corporate Simps: How The GOP (and Trump Supporters) Can Fight Back. PDF Excerpt: The left-wing's culture war is relentless. And given their near-complete control of the commanding heights, it might seem that (conservatives) are hopelessly outgunned. But the Democrats do have a weak point: For decades, Americans have generously carved out privileges, incentives, and exceptions for those companies and institutions that we felt served our people's and our country's interests. "It's time to stop and hurt them where it hurts most, in their pockets". Republican politicians, however, aren't used to this kind of fighting. They'd rather cite Ronald Reagan as we slip slowly under corporate rule. That won't do at all. It's time to act. It's time to fix it, the enemy is in our trenches. The culture war is upon us; it rages in every single aspect of liberal society - the home, the church, our businesses, and our government. While there are hopeful signs of Americans (and even some politicians) waking up, the open enemies of Christian morality, traditional values, the nuclear family, masculine and feminine virtues, and Western Civilization are already in our fox-holes. We need to fight back; and we can start with their wallets! Why, you might reasonably ask, does Congress shovel $45 billion into universities every year? Certainly not for the students or taxpayers, who are burdened with debt while these leftwing-activist factories raise tuition year after year. Every time the vote comes up, though, it comes and goes without so much as a peep from the GOP. This and all other Democratic Corporate and Political "Sweet-Heart Deals" must end now! This war will be fought between the forces of Good versus the forces of Evil; and understand this point clearly: we are currently at war with the 'CCP controlled Democrats' and their loyal autocratic political and corporate followers, the 'Axis of Evil (China, Russia, Korea, Iran) and this planets global elites who desire CCP autocratic rule of its populations. It comes down to the age old battle between good and evil for the ultimate control of our very souls, a battle which we must win, else if evil prevails, the next generation of children will be making Nike Shoelaces 18 hours per day under the supervision of their new Chinese overlords.
7Apr2022: Beating China: America needs a proactive industrial policy to win the fourth industrial revolution. PDF We can do better than China. We're better equipped to innovate than China. But we're not doing so, because we're crushed by a technocratic elite which has sucked the marrow out of the United states economy and generated enormous wealth doing things that, for the most part, harm us. Nothing short of an intervention by the federal government, namely an industrial policy, will turn that around. Wars are not won by stealing data. They're not won by spies. They're won by logistics in depth and the willingness to prevail aka resolve. The first industrial revolution began when James Watt sold his first commercial steam engine in 1776. The fourth industrial revolution began when China responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by using artificial intelligence applied to massive datasets to predict potential outbreaks and use forensic testing plus selective lockdowns to shut down the pandemic. So China was the first industrial country to come out of the pandemic. As a result they had a quantum leap in their relative power, and they are now proceeding to roll out the technology associated with this. Yifu Lin, chief economist of the World Bank, Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, just wrote a book about why China is going to lead the fourth industrial revolution. Yifu Lin says: "they're going to try to suppress us. They don't want the USA to rise, just the way England tried to suppress Germany and the U.S. But look at our human capital. Human capital is what drives technology. China is producing 7 times as many engineers as we are per year and 3 times as many STEM Ph.D.'s; they have over 1.4 billion people, while our country battles with a CCP controlled incompetent political and military class; a woke corporate, entertainment, and academic class which includes anti-American teachers unions, mostly comprised of socialists bent on the indoctrination of students, versus providing a quality education based on math, science, and the arts.

6Apr2022: Professor Victor Davis Hanson 'MUST READ': The Nihilism of the Left. PDF Summary Excerpt: The Left got what it wanted and now controls academia, the media, the internet, K-12 education, corporate boardrooms, the Pentagon, Wall Street, and Hollywood. Entertainment, hiring, promotions, and awards are now based as much on race, gender, and sexual identity as on merit. Our once revered intelligence agencies is not just institutionalized mediocracy. Rather it is a dangerous zeal to enact by fiat politicized agendas that cannot-otherwise be ratified by a legislative vote-all with the expectation that these sanctified agents of political change are above the law and will be rewarded accordingly. And they more or less have turned each of these into versions of Pravda. The sermons, arrogance, and narcissism of these woke cultural imperialists now explain why they are disliked as much abroad as they are at home. In sum, we are watching a rare laboratory experiment in which the traditional American fringe is now in control of the government. In pursuit of its utopian omelet, the Left cares little about the millions of middle-class Americans it must break to make it. A once revered military now cannot even win a 50 percent vote of confidence from the American public. The result is an unmitigated disaster that not only has tarred the Democratic Party, corrupted once-revered agencies, and alienated half the country from our cultural institutions, but now endangers the very health and security of the United States as illegal arrivals are seen as much needed democratic constituents, while legal immigrants are considered by the Democrats as too politically unpredictable and thus no longer of further value.

5Apr2022: New 'Antilynching' Law Let Feds Jail Anyone Like 'Trump Supporters' For Crimes Never Committed. PDF Excerpt: Touted as an overdue (if duplicative) law that no one could disagree with, the 'Emmett Till Antilynching Act' signed by President Biden last week includes a subtle provision that will boost the Biden administration's war on 'Trump Supporters Wrongthink'. "The bill creates a new federal crime of 'conspiracy' which could be enforced overbroadly on people who are not perpetrators of a crime." The new "antilynching" law also criminalizes "conspiracy" to commit certain hate crimes. With this new law, the U.S. government has further expanded into the realm of policing thought crimes. Ominously, this law comes on the heels of the Department of Homeland Security's attempt to broaden the "domestic terrorism" category to include 'Trump Supporters' and expand methods for identifying "threats." FBI Director Christopher Wray went before Congress last year to declare "The problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a number of years." Attorney General Merrick Garland adopted a similar tone, warning "Domestic violent extremists such as 'Trump Supporters' pose an elevated threat and in the FBI's view, the top domestic violent extremist threat we face comes from racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocate for the superiority of the white race.

PDF A Louisiana appellate court reinstated Attorney General Jeff Landry's lawsuit challenging Mark Zuckerberg's infiltration of the state election system with private "Zuck Bucks" that flooded the country during the 2020 election. The lawsuit, State of Louisiana v. Center for Tech and Civic Life, originated in October 2020. That's when Louisiana, through AG Landry, sought a court order declaring that "private contributions to local election officials and the election system in general are unlawful and contrary to Louisiana law." Landry's lawsuit followed attempts by the Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life to dole out millions in targeted grants to election officials throughout the state.
5Apr2022: Lawfare: "DNC: Here's what the ECA 'Electoral Count Act' Reform should look like (so cheating will be easier)." PDF Due to the DNC's (Democratic National Committee) Anti-American Policies the only way for Democrats to Win at the Ballot Box is to Cheat "Bigly" by Subverting the Electoral Count Act and Fighting Election Outcomes in the Courts using Liberal Activist Election Litigators. 'Congress should not reform the Electoral Count Act enacted 135 years ago on 3 February 1887 which has served the United States of America so well to date'.
Lawfare: DNC Reform Principles for (subverting) the 'Electoral Count Act' aka "The Project" PDF Summary Excerpt: SPECIFIC PRINCIPLES TO GOVERN ECA REFORM: A. Congressional Powers in Counting and Determining the Validity of Electoral Votes (Congress should clarify that under the Twelfth Amendment, the authority of the President of the Senate as presiding officer is limited to opening the envelopes containing the lists with the electors' votes as lawfully transmitted by the States, and otherwise presiding over the proceedings to ensure that they comply with the procedural requirements specified in that Amendment, the ECA and other applicable standing rules. Congress should clarify that a threshold of at least a majority in each chamber is needed to sustain any objection properly made within the specified categories of allowable challenges to electoral votes. In enforcing its constitutional power over the timing for the selection of electors, Congress should amend the ECA to clarify that a "failed election" under 3 U.S.C. ss 2 may include extraordinary (catastrophic) events...), B. Reform Related to the Electoral College Meeting Date (Congress should move the Electoral College meeting date to a later date to ensure that States have more time to conduct recounts as needed, and so that legal challenges can be resolved.), C. Reforms Related to State Action to Override or Disregard the Outcome of the Vote Under Existing Law (Congress should exercise its Article II timing power to clarify that State legislatures and other State institutions do not have power after the Election Day specified by Congress to disregard the vote held pursuant to the State law in place on that day, or to select electors in a manner inconsistent with the State law in place on that day. Congress should specify that the three-judge court shall resolve all issues before it without delay, with direct appeal to the United States Supreme Court, which will have mandatory appellate jurisdiction.)
5Apr2022: Newsmax: GOP Hits Back on Biden Demand for Trump Prosecution of January 6th. PDF President Joe Biden's admission that he'd like to see former President Donald Trump prosecuted for the January 6 riots and that he's disappointed Attorney General Merrick Garland has not taken tougher action strikes conservatives as hypocritical. Especially hypocritical, they say, is the silence from the mainstream media that skewered Trump when it perceived him committing similar actions. The New York Times on Sunday reported on what it called Garland's "growing pressure" to investigate the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, which Democrats and many in the mainstream press have blamed Trump and his allies of inciting. Trump has denied any such involvement, pointing out that most attendees of his rally outside the White House that day were peaceful and did not participate in the riot later at the Capitol building. According to the Times, quoting two unnamed sources, Biden "[a]s recently as late last year ... confided to his inner circle that he believed former President Donald J. Trump was a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted." "The leaking of the President's demand puts Garland in an even more difficult position," Legal Scholar Jonathan Turley writes. "The clear intent of the leak is to let Garland know what the President expects from him. Yet, Garland has already been criticized by some of us for refusing to appoint a special counsel in the Hunter Biden scandal." "Absent new evidence of direct culpability, such a prosecution would likely result in either acquittal or an appellate reversal," Turley said. "That would raise concerns over the Justice Department pursuing a political rather than a legal agenda the very danger that Garland pledged to avoid when he stressed 'I am not the president's lawyer. I am the United States' lawyer."
5Apr2022: Federalist: The Alfa Bank Hoax is Looking a lot like CrossFire Hurricane. PDF The failure of the FBI to ask "the basic questions" about the data and white papers provided on the purported Trump-Alfa Bank secret communications speaks not of the unimportance of that information, but of the incompetence (or political corruption) of the FBO's Crossfire Hurricane team. This collaboration between government entities and private cybersecurity experts is, as the Wall Street Journal recently reported, of "enormous intelligence value" and "can help governments and companies detect and counter cyberattacks." The Journal's coverage, however, missed the mark when it then noted that "the monitoring of web traffic flow by government entities and private cybersecurity experts" raises "privacy implications." This analysis missed the larger and more serious scandal: Individuals with wide access to sensitive government and proprietary data can exploit that data to target a political opponent. They can draft misleading "white papers," present the data and white paper to the FBI and CIA with whom they hold a trusted relationship, and thereby trigger a criminal (or national security) investigation.

31Mar2022: DNC RINO Former VP Mike Pence Lays Out Three Pillared Freedom Agenda Ahead of Midterms. PDF The CCP and the DNC, both fearful of a Trump presidency, engaged and used former VP DNC RINO Dan Quayle to mislead Vice President Mike Pence, whose inactions permitted and enabled the CCP directed DNC electoral fraud, which was responsible for denying Trump his rightul second term as President. This betrayal of President Trump resulted in Pence historically being credited as the single root cause of this planets third world war which officially started on the 24th of February 2022, beginning with Russia's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. Mike Pence is the founder of Advancing American Freedom announced his three-pillared "freedom agenda" for conservative leaders ahead of the 2022 midterms. Pence's plan has three pillars: American Opportunity, American Leadership, and American Culture. These pillars focus on America's economic opportunity, strength abroad, and traditional values. Under the American Opportunity pillar, Pence calls for, among other things, reestablishing America's energy independence and dominance, fostering a thriving free-market economy, simplifying the tax code, and reigning in massive government spending by empowering federalism. The opportunity pillar also calls for reforming big tech and providing them the same legal liability framework as traditional print and broadcast media companies.
31Mar2022: Washington Post: WaPo Admits Hunter Profited $4.8M from Chinese Energy Deal. PDF Hunter Biden profited $4.8 million in retainer and consulting fees from a Chinese energy company though 2017 and 2018, the Washington Post admitted on Tuesday. After ignoring the story for 532 days after it broke in 2020, the Post finally acknowledged Joe Biden's son performed business transactions with CEFC China Energy for millions of dollars. Hunter's windfall follows years of rubbing shoulders with powerful international companies and individuals while Joe Biden was chair of the Foreign Relations Committee and vice president. In the process of reporting Hunter's corrupt business dealings, the paper also confirmed Hunter's previously reported "fake" laptop was indeed Hunter's "laptop from hell" the same laptop the establishment media falsely reported as "Russian disinformation" over and over again. In fact, 15 establishment media personalities claimed Hunter's laptop emails were likely Russian propaganda. Perhaps most famously, CBS News reporter Lesley Stahl falsely told President Trump in 2020 that Hunter's "laptop from hell" could not be verified.
31Mar2022: Breitbart: House Republicans Ask Biden Administration Why It's Not Sanctioning North Korea and China. PDF House Republicans are pressing the Biden administration on why it is not making full use of congressionally approved sanctions against China for providing support to North Korea in light of Pyongyang's recent illicit ballistic missile testing. "In the face of these developments we find your administration's North Korea policy lacking and urge you to levy, tighten, and enforce sanctions based on congressional statutes as well as the broad executive authorities available to incumber North Korean military modernization and counter the Kim regime," they wrote to Anthony Blinken. The lawmakers also said they are disturbed by the U.N. reporting that North Korea and Iran have "resumed cooperation on long-range missile development projects" and asked what the status of cooperation is between the two nations on ballistic missile cooperation and what the Biden administration is doing about it.

31Mar2022: AXIOS: China, Russia Use H-1B Workers for Cheap Propaganda. PDF Malevolent groups are using the huge H-1B visa-worker program to do bad things in the United States. "Foreign propaganda organs including those from Russia and China have used a visa program designed to lure high-skilled workers to the U.S. to place reporters, editors and producers at their American outposts, records show." Most of the imported workers are merely mid-skill, no-rights, compliant workers. They are used by investors and executives to bump outspoken, ambitious American professionals out of Fortune 500 careers, sometimes with disastrous results. But the visa programs were also used to import more than one million wage-cutting foreigners for nursing and technician jobs sought by American women.

31Mar2022: Breibart: Woke Army Recruiters Reducing Its Numbers in Face of Recruiting Difficulties. PDF The Army this week admitted it was having problems recruiting and announced an unprecedented reduction in its numbers that would shrink the active duty Army to its smallest size since World War II. "We're facing, obviously, some challenging conditions in terms of our ability to recruit and attract talent," Under Secretary of the Army Gabe Camarillo said at a press conference. Camarillo blamed a "very tight labor market" for the Army's recruiting woes. "What we're just seeing is given the particular conditions of a very tight labor market, our ability to meet all of our projected recruiting goals were a little bit challenged in FY '22 and FY '23," he said. Camarillo said the Army's end strength, or total number of forces, would go from 485,000 soldiers currently to 476,000 in fiscal year 2022, which ends in September, and further down to 473,000 in fiscal year 2023. He said the Army decided on reducing its recruitment goals instead of lowering standards. "We made the assessment that we would not want to adjust our specific criteria for quality, and so, we made the decision to just temporarily reduce end strength, as opposed to lowering our standards."
31Mar2022: 55 House Democrat 'Deadbeats' Skip Paying Party Dues to DCCC as Midterm Red Wave Builds. PDF Fifty-five powerful and influential House Democrats are reportedly financially stiffing the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), failing to pay the dues they owe because of the
likelihood that Republicans will retake the chamber. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC), and DCCC Chair Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) reportedly pleaded with members on Tuesday to pay up. But many members are not paying their dues, because Democrats perceive the 2022 midterm election as a lost cause. "The House Democratic majority is in deep trouble, with both history and the polls against them; and Republicans have overtaken what's been traditionally a large lead by the DCCC in fundraising, thanks in part to a huge spurt in online fundraising," Punchbowl noted.
One congressional Democrat told the publication Pelosi is trying her best to force the "deadbeats" to cough up the money by keeping a list of those who have not paid. "The speaker is very focused on exactly who's paid dues and who hasn't. You really don't want to be on the wrong list right now," the member said. Many of those 'deadbeats' who are stiffing the committee are some of the most powerful and influential members in the caucus, such as Oversight Chair Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D- NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Cori Bush (D-MO), and Jamaal Bowman (D-NY).
30Mar2022: Federalist: Biden Family Funneled Millions By CCP-Controlled Company. PDF Republican Senators Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa revealed that Hunter Biden and James Biden were funneled millions of dollars from companies directly influenced by the Chinese Communist Party to offer the "Spy Chief of China" legal representation. Both Grassley and Johnson, who have spent years investigating the Biden family's shady overseas dealings, attempted to uncover more but said the Department of Justice stifled their investigation by refusing to cooperate. Hunter and James also refused to be "transparent and forthcoming" when "they declined to speak to us." He also said "their silence speaks volumes. Hunter Biden knew exactly who he was dealing with. He was dealing with the 'fucking spy chief of China'. And that fact should alert the media and our Democrat colleagues to seriously consider the implications the Biden family's vast web of foreign financial entanglements have in the conduct of this administration's foreign policy and our national security" Johnson remarked.
30Mar2022: Trump Doctrine 2.0 Former President Lays Out Plan To Reverse Biden Agenda. PDF The 45th president says he's not interested in the House speaker's job, and knows what the next president needs to do on inflation, crime, the border, Russia and China. Former President Donald Trump is laying out a 2.0 vision on how he would "Make America Great Again, Again", offering his plan for defeating Joe Biden and the Democrats, and reversing soaring inflation and gas prices, high crime, surging illegal immigration and global instability. "When I watch to see what's happening, it's very, very sad. I mean, our country is being destroyed by these people," Trump said. "The border is a disaster. We're no longer respected. They don't respect our leader at all. They don't respect Biden at all. "It's so sad to see what's happened to our great USA. But we can come back. I think these midterms are vital, just vital," he said. "We don't have a free press. We really don't have free speech anymore. It's very bad, very dangerous. These elections are going to be absolutely critical for this country," he added. "I think the House is in great shape. I think the Senate is hurt badly by Mitch McConnell, very badly. I think he's terrible. He's also terrible for our country," said Trump, blaming the Kentucky Republican for allowing the Biden infrastructure bill to pass Congress with bipartisan support. Trump offered a pointed message for defeating the Biden-version of the Democrat Party. "They have no voter ID, defund the police, sanctuary cities, weak military, we're gonna raise your taxes, no energy independence. All things that were all done." he said. "Bad on religion. Bad on the Second Amendment. Bad on oil. The system is totally broken. Our system is broken. And we're going into socialism. And we're going into communism," he added.
30Mar2022: Matt Gaetz Introduces Resolution to Strip Security Clearances from Intel Officials Who Misled About Hunter's Laptop. PDF Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Tuesday introduced a resolution to strip security clearances from intelligence officials who misled the public about the authenticity of Hunter Biden's laptop. After the "laptop from hell" story broke before the 2020 election, 51 intel officials signed a letter that insinuated Hunter's laptop was Russian disinformation. The letter was peddled by Politico under the title, "Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say."
30Mar2022: Issa: "There Was Clearly a Conspiracy to Cover Up Hunter Biden's Laptop" Scandal. PDF. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) weighed in on House Republicans vowing to investigate Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, over his laptop scandal after the midterm elections. Issa asserted that "there was clearly a conspiracy to cover up the Biden family's financial dealings" and suggested there was "this kind of coordinated effort just before an election" to affect the election. "[B]ecause this involves so many companies such as Facebook, Twitter and so on, they took down the New York Post, there was clearly a conspiracy to, if you will, cover up the wrong doing of the president and his family just before an election that he had to win and did win. So, the investigation is clearly warranted, not just because Hunter Biden seems to be a petty criminal taking advantage of his father's money and perhaps sharing money with his father it's because if we have this kind of coordinated effort just before an election, what we have is American collusion to affect the output of an election. That can't happen."
30Mar2022: Hunter Biden laptop material entered into Congressional Record. PDF It's now an official matter of record. Material from Hunter Biden's infamous laptop was entered into the congressional record on Tuesday at the request of Rep. Matt Gaetz.

30Mar2022: Federalist: Can Trump Win His Lawsuit Against Hillary Clinton For Collusion Lies? PDF Last week, former President Donald Trump filed a sprawling lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and the other main players responsible for the Russia collusion hoax. The 103-page complaint filed in a Florida federal court on Thursday begins with a synopsis of the Democratic plot to frame Trump as a Russian asset, spurring the Crossfire Hurricane investigation into his presidential campaign and later his administration. Among other things, the lawsuit highlights the Clinton campaign's hiring of Perkins Coie, alleging the law firm "was tasked with spearheading the scheme to find or fabricate proof of a sinister link between Donald J. Trump and Russia." This summary represents a fraction of the details included in the complaint and an even smaller sliver of the totality of the facts of SpyGate but it sets the stage sufficiently to understand the theories Trump's legal team present: Trump's lawyers allege a total of 16 separate counts, ranging from RICO claims to state law tort claims.

30Mar2022: Breitbart: House Republicans Expand Offensive Map Following Nationwide Redistricting Developments. PDF NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer said that "Republicans have the message, the candidates, and the resources needed to take back the majority. Vulnerable Democrats who chose not to retire will be shown no mercy." The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) announced Wednesday they are expanding their offensive map to target 72 Democrat-held or newly created seats ahead of the 2022 midterms following the latest redistricting developments. The NRCC, looking to pick up as many seats as possible to regain the House majority, expanded their list from 70 to 72 after the majority of states approved their redistricting maps. The House Republicans, who are favored to take back the House, only need a net gain of five seats. So far, there have been 31 House Democrats who announced they would not seek reelection. The 72 targeted districts include 12 that were won in 2020 by former President Donald Trump, 11 that were won by President Joe Biden from zero to five percent, 16 that are were won by Biden from five percent to ten percent, and 33 were won by Biden from ten percent or more. The new additions to the list are California's 13th and 26th Congressional Districts; Colorado's 8th Congressional District; Florida's 14th and 22nd; Illinois's 11th Congressional Districts; Michigan's 10th Congressional District; Montana's 1st Congressional District; North Carolina 6th, 13th, and 14th Congressional Districts; New Mexico 1st Congressional District; Nevada's 1st Congressional District; Ohio 9th Congressional District; Oregon's 6th Congressional District; and Texas's 38th Congressional District.

29Mar2022: January 6 Committee Claims its Digital Watergate is Above The Law. PDF The January 6 Committee's claims to be above the law as it demands supporter data from the National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC) conjures memories of former President Richard Nixon's insistence that "when the president does it, that means it is not illegal." In 2022, Democrats on the January 6 Committee, who've admitted the partisan probe is all about the midterms, are seeking confidential strategic information from Republicans in the form of a subpoena issued under questionable authority. The subpoena targets Republican financial records housed with the database firm Salesforce, requiring the party to hand over detailed personal information about Republican supporters and their engagement with the party. "What the Salesforce subpoena demands is for the company to hand over the 'Holy Grail' of the RNC's internal digital playbook," the NRSC wrote in an amicus brief to the RNC lawsuit, with millions spent to compile its treasure trove of data. The NRSC calls the January 6 Committee"s operation a "Digital-age Watergate."
29Mar2022: Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) Says DC is Orgy Filled and Cocaine Fueled 'House of Cards'. PDF Rep. Madison Cawthorn says his fellow lawmakers have invited him to take part in orgies in Washington and snorted lines of cocaine right in front of him. "The sexual perversion that goes on in Washington. I mean, being kind of a young guy in Washington, where the average age is probably 60 or 70 - [you] look at all these people, a lot of them that I've looked up to through my life, I've always paid attention to politics," Cawthorn, who was elected in 2020, said. "Then all of a sudden you get invited: 'We're going to have a sexual get-together at one of our homes, you should come. What did you just ask me to come to? And then you realize they're asking you to come to an orgy," he said. He also claimed to have seen people he described as leading national anti-addiction efforts snort coke. "And then you watch them do a bump of cocaine right in front of you. And it's like, this is wild," Cawthorn said. Voters in North Carolina have sued to keep him off the ballot this November because of comments he made supporting the US Capitol protesters on Jan. 6, 2021.
29Mar2022: Breitbart: Biden Budget Plan Spends Billions in American Tax Dollars on Lawyers for Border Crossers and Illegal Aliens. PDF Biden unveiled his nearly $6 trillion budget which includes ensuring border crossers and illegal aliens have "legal representation" for years to come. Specifically, the budget would spend $150 million in taxpayer money to fund "new resources in legal access programming" for border crossers and illegal aliens who are fighting their deportations from the U.S. In addition, the budget complements "this new program" by spending "$4.5 billion in mandatory resources to expand these efforts over a 10- year period" to make the immigration "system fairer and more equitable" for border crossers and illegal aliens. In January, Breitbart News reported how Biden was set to roll out the Legal Access at the Border (LAB) program that enters agreements with private contractors, funded by taxpayer money, to provide border crossers and illegal aliens with a range of legal services; for border crossers and illegal aliens are part of a larger plan by the Biden administration to transform the southern border into a mere checkpoint for foreign nationals seeking entry to the U.S. That goal envisions "European-style reception centers" where border crossers and illegal aliens are immediately met with medical services, legal advice, and educational programs.
29Mar2022: Federalist: Hunter Biden's Laptops Are Now An Active National Security Threat. PDF "Emails from Hunter's abandoned laptop show he helped secure millions of dollars of funding for Metabiota, a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases that could be used as bioweapons, [Biden] also introduced Metabiota to an allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma, for a 'science project' involving high biosecurity level labs in Ukraine. And although Metabiota is ostensibly a medical data company, its vice president emailed Hunter in 2014 describing how they could 'assert Ukraine's cultural and economic independence from Russia' an unusual goal for a biotech firm." The Biden family, the intelligence agencies, and the corrupt media social and legacy hold full responsibility for the danger Americans now face. Biden knew full well how compromised his family was, and that there were two laptops, not one, with evidence of the corruption floating about. Yet Biden lied to the American public, with an assist from the former high-level members of the intelligence community who signed the letter suggesting the laptop scandal represented Russian disinformation. Even when coupled with the complicity of former members of the intelligence community, all of Joe Biden's lies would mean nothing if the media had done its job and reported the story when it still matter. It's too late now, however: Biden is our commander in chief and Putin potentially holds a cache of compromising information perfect for propaganda purposes.
29Mar2022: Federalist: Four Takeaways from NYT's Attempt To Control the Hunter Biden Narrative. PDF There is much more to be gleaned from the New York Times's article, though, including these four takeaways: 1. If the Laptop Is Legit So Are the Scandals the Laptop Exposed; 2. The Times's Record of 'Getting Ahead of the Story' Suggests More Developments Are Coming; 3. Prosecutors are Investigating Some Serious Stuff; and 4. Downplay the Charges, Build the Narrative, and Beta-Test the Defenses. Until the Delaware U.S. attorney announces charges, if any, against Hunter Biden, it is impossible to know the criminal jeopardy the president's son may face. But, given that when the Times reports on stories harmful to Democratic interests it proves prescient, odds are good that some serious charges are in the works.
29Mar2022: The 'Entire Collusion Against Trump' Complete Timeline. PDF Evidence has emerged that makes it clear there were organized efforts to collude against candidate Donald Trump and then President Trump. For example: Anti-Russian Ukrainians allegedly helped coordinate and execute a campaign against Trump in partnership with the DNC Democratic National Committee and news reporters. A Yemen-born ex-British spy reportedly delivered political opposition research against Trump to reporters, Sen. John McCain, and the FBI; the latter of which used the material in part to obtain wiretaps against one or more Trump-related associates. There were orchestrated leaks of anti-Trump information and allegations to the press, including by ex-FBI Director James Comey. The U.S. intel community allegedly engaged in questionable surveillance practices and politially-motivated "unmaskings" of U.S. citizens, including Trump officials. Alleged conflicts of interests have surfaced regarding FBI officials who cleared Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information and who investigated Trump's alleged Russia ties.
28Mar2022: President Trump: "My Personality Kept Us the Hell Out of War!" PDF Having made made a hole-in-one earlier in the day on the golf course, President Donald Trump told thousands of supporters at the Save America MAGA Rally in Commerce, Georgia; while his critics faulted Trump's "personality," it was his personality that kept the U.S. out of war for the four years he was in office. President Trump was referring to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, which President Joe Biden failed to deter, and which he is currently in Europe trying to contain. Trump said "and you remember this: the fake news media said my personality would get us into war. But actually, as it turned out, it was my personality that kept us the hell out of war." Trump continued "and it's been accurately reported, I was the only president in four decades who did not get America into any new conflicts. Instead, I brought our troops back home from Syria, Iraq, Somalia, and many other places, and would have done it very quickly from Afghanistan, we were all set. And you know, we didn't lose one soldier in Afghanistan for eighteen months..."
28Mar2022: Tom Fitton Judicial Watch: "The Left's Rules For Thee But Not For Me", the DNC Targets Lawyers Who Questioned the 2020 Presidential Election (~10mins) Judicial Watch announced it filed an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit supporting Sidney Powell's appeal of sanctions levied against her and her associates in Michigan 2020 election challenges.

26Mar2022: Federalist: Zuckerberg Nonprofit Helped Shift Michigan's 2020 Voting Rules Towards A Biden Victory. PDF A nonprofit connected to Mark Zuckerberg-funded groups worked with Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson to influence state elections ahead of 2020. The changes include getting the state to alter how it used absentee ballots without an act of the state legislature. Documents show that the private organization funded by Facebook tycoon Zuckerberg exists to push states to adopt mass mail-in balloting of the kind that made chaos of the 2020 election. In Michigan, this highly partisan organization directly affected voting rules as "Private Partisan Groups Told Public Employees What To Do and Affected Election Policy." The DNC developed four strategies to push a 100 percent mail-in balloting policy in all 50 states via four strategies with the end goal of "Full Vote-At-Home" natiowide.
26Mar2022: Federalist: If Congress Doesn't Rein In Big Tech Censors, Big Tech Will Completely Eliminate The Right. PDF Excerpt: Tech firms will eventually silence anyone who dissents from their woke ideology. Until Congress under what would have to be a Republican majority, given Democrats' enthusiasm for online censorship acts to put an end to this, it will continue. And the list of things you can't say will grow. Before long, you won't be able to say, for example, that abortion is the taking of a human life, that gay marriage is not the same as marriage between a man and a woman, or that children should not be taught that America is systemically racist. In such an environment, the only way to ensure the censors don't come after you is to follow the extraordinary example of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who was asked by Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-TN., during her confirmation hearing to define the word "woman." Jackson replied, infamously, "I'm not a biologist."
26Mar2022: Federalist: Did The New York Times Admit Biden's Corruption So Democrats Can Get Rid Of Him? PDF Excerpt: It is painfully obvious, as was predictable, that Joe Biden's presidency is a dumpster fire. As demonstrated by the DNC party’s destructive callousness towards children, the elderly, and the poor during their Covid lockdown frenzy, Democrats care about none of these real-world results of their policies. But they do care about polling, and Joe Biden's is abysmal. Biden's publicly bungling essentially every major issue all the way up to U.S. national security, Biden's weakness and incompetence have been impossible for the corrupt media to entirely cover up. The DNC believes that Joe Biden is no longer useful to the ruling class. After being used to win an election, he's now making it impossible for them to credibly foist on Americans the idea that his party could win another one with him on their masthead, so it's time the DNC finds a new donkey; perhaps even someone just like Pete Buttigieg, the DNC's new rising star.
26Mar2022: Politico Poll: Majority Support Trump in Republican Primary. PDF A survey of 2,005 registered voters which had a +/- 2 percent margin of error asked, "If the 2024 Republican presidential primary were being held today, for whom would you vote?" A majority, 54 percent, said they would support Trump, and no other candidate came close. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who has shown no indication of running for president follows in a distant second with 14 percent support. Former Vice President Mike Pence placed third with 10 percent support, followed by former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley with 8 percent.
26Mar2022: Poll: Suburbs Switch to Trump, and Leads Biden 45%-42% in 2024 Clash PDF Excerpt: In a blow to his political base, suburban America is abandoning President Joe Biden after giving him his 2020 victory over then President Donald Trump. In new 2022 and 2024 election polling, Emerson College found that Trump leads Biden by a huge 47%-38% among suburban voters. The shift is notable and worrisome for the DNC and Biden's reelection campaign. After the 2020 election, the liberal Brookings Institution declared that suburbs won it for Biden and predicted that they would become the DNC party's backbone. As a result, the Emerson poll is the latest to show Trump ahead of Biden in a hypothetical 2024 matchup.
26Mar2022: Biden Administration Is Cooking The Books On Illegal Immigrant Arrests. PDF With approximately 250,000 illegal immigrants entering through the southern border monthly, ICE crime data shows that our communities are more dangerous because of the Biden's administration's bad policies permitting illegal imigrant felons entry to terrorize american communities.
26Mar2022: Breitbart: Polling Shows Majority of Florida Democrats Support GOP 'Parental Rights' Bill. PDF A new poll shows that Florida Democrat voters support the Republican Legislature's "Parental Rights in Education" bill, despite a campaign from the radical left to falsely label it the "Don't Say Gay" bill. The bill, which passed the Florida House in early March, would order that a "school district may not encourage classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity in primary grade levels or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students." Despite the outcry from Democrats and journalists, the bill does not mention "gay" or any specific sexuality. The Poll shows FL DEMOCRATIC primary voters support the GOP Legislature's "Parental Rights"/LGBT education bill by 52-36%. A Daily Wire poll found that 62 percent of Florida Democrats "support the Florida bill's ban on classroom instructions on sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3, or at any level if it is not presented in a manner that is age or developmentally appropriate."
26Mar2022: Breitbart: Biden Predicts 'Real' Food Shortages in America, but Offers No Plan. PDF Excerpt: Astonishingly, the president of the United States stood before the world this week, predicting "real food shortages" without mentioning a plan to keep us fed. "With regard to food shortages-yes, we did talk about food shortages, and, uh, and it's gonna be real." "The price of these sanctions is not just imposed upon Russia; it's imposed upon an awful lot of countries. Including European countries and our country, as well. While we're not expecting a food shortage here at home, we do anticipate that higher energy, fertilizer, wheat, and corn prices could impact the price of growing and purchasing critical fuel supply, food supplies for countries around the world." So here we are, currently living in a country where the American president is predicting "real food shortages", something this country has not faced in a hundred years, and he's not doing a damn thing about it. This is especially galling when we live in a bountiful country with all the resources (and then some) to ensure we never again have to depend on a foreign country to feed our own.
26Mar2022: Federalist: Democrats Aren't Just Extreme Anymore, They're Weird and Gross. PDF Excerpt: There's an article in the New York Times that every Democrat leader should immediately read, if only for this one quote from Isabell Sawhill of the left-wing Brookings Institution: "This large group includes some people who are just plain prejudiced but a larger group that simply resents all the attention paid to race, gender, sexual preference or identity and the disrespect they think this entails for those with more traditional views and lifestyles." Sawhill was talking specifically about "white working class" Americans who have drifted away from the Democrat Party, though she could just as easily have been talking about literally any group of voters. And she just as easily could have summarized it this way: "As Democrats become more weird and gross, they predictably become less popular." Democrats have decided that nothing is more important than climate, race(ism), gender and sexual identity.
26Mar2022: Victor Davis Hanson: "The Real Reset is Coming". PDF Excerpt: President Joe Biden believes the Ukraine war will mark the start of a "new world order." In the middle of the COVID global pandemic, Klaus Schwab and global elites likewise announced a "great reset." Accordingly, the nations of the world would have to surrender their sovereignty to an international body of experts. They would enlighten us on taxes, diversity and green policies. These "new orders" and "resets" always entail far bigger government and more unelected, powerful bureaucracies. Elites assume that their radical changes in energy use, media reporting, voting, sovereignty, and racial and ethnic quotas will never quite apply to themselves, the architects of such top-down changes. Middle class lifestyles will be curbed as we are instructed to strive for sustainability and transition to apartment living and mass transit. In truth, we are about to see a radical reset - of the current reset. It will be a different sort of transformation than the elites are expecting and
"one that they should greatly fear." Both in Europe and the United States left-wing governments deliberately curbed drilling and non-Russian pipelines. They shut down nuclear power plants and subsidized costly, inefficient solar and wind projects. They ended up not with utopia, but with fuel shortages, high prices, and energy dependency on the world's most repressive regimes. The woke revolution in the West was supposed to teach us that the "white male" dominated Western world is toxic. Its origins, ascendence, and current leisure and affluence were supposedly due only to systemic exploitation, racism, and sexism. The DNC and the Elites introduced cancel culture, doxxing, deplatforming and social ostracism to shame these supposed exploiters and to destroy their lives and careers. So a reset reckoning is coming in reaction to the "new world order" championed by Biden and the Davos set. In the November 2022 midterms, we are likely to see a historic "No!" to the orthodox left-wing agenda that has resulted in unsustainable inflation, unaffordable energy, war, and humiliation abroad, spiraling crime, racial hostility as well as arrogant defiance from those who deliberately enacted these disastrous policies. What will replace it is a return to what until recently had worked. Closed and secure borders with only legal and measured immigration will return. Americans will demand tough police enforcement and deterrent sentencing, and a return to integration and the primacy of individual character rather than separatist fixations on the "color our skin." The public will continue to tune out the partisan and mediocre mainstream media. We will see greater increased production of oil and natural gas to transition us slowly to a wider variety of energy, strong national defense, and deterrent foreign policies.
The Prophets of the New World Order Sowed the Wind and they will Soon Reap the Whirlwind of a Very Angry Public Worn Out by Elite Incompetence, Arrogance, and Ignorance.
26Mar2022: Associated Press: 'Due to an Incompetent Biden Administration' Nearly One-Third of Americans Expect to Be Poorer in a Year. PDF Excerpt: Never before have so many Americans felt their prospects are so rotten. The University of Michigan's survey of consumer sentiment showed on Friday that 32% of Americans expect the financial condition of their household to worsen over the coming year, a record high share, largely due to rising prices. About seven in 10 Americans say the nation's economy is in bad shape, and nearly two-thirds disapprove of Biden's handling of the economy.
26Mar2022: Associated Press Report: Hydropower Untapped Domestic Energy - only 2,500 of 90,000 U.S. Dams are Generating Electricity. PDF To date, hydropower or the generation of electricity using water and turbines is vastly underutilized, according to the report. Of the 90,000 dams identified by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, only 2,500 are being used to generate electricity. Dams could actually prevent weather-related threats to the environment by retrofitting dams to produce electricity.
26Mar2022: CCP China Global Times: "There Will Be No Peace as Long as NATO Exists". PDF China's state-run Global Times on Friday slammed NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg for criticizing China's support for the Russian invasion of Ukraine. China clearly stated that "NATO is more of a threat to world peace than the Chinese Communist Party". Stoltenberg said NATO is concerned China's political backing could escalate to "material support" for Russia and advised the Chinese government to "live up to its responsibilities" by joining the rest of the world in opposing the invasion. "We face a fundamentally changed security environment where authoritarian powers are increasingly prepared to use force to get their way. Beijing has joined Moscow in questioning the right of independent nations to choose their own path." The Global Times stated that NATO's focus on the rising threat of China proves it is merely a "tool for the U.S. to maintain hegemony" and a "machine for the implementation of the U.S. global will. Beijing stated that as long as NATO exists, there will be no day of peace in Europe and in the world."
25Mar2022: Breitbart: Florida Counties Open Investigations into Felons Voting in 2020 Election. PDF A number of counties in Florida have opened investigations into whether convicted felons, ineligible to vote, cast votes in the 2020 presidential election.
Aside from felons, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) has been uncovering records showing foreign nationals in numerous states voter rolls. As of 2018, there were nearly 250 counties across the United States with more registered voters on the voter rolls than eligible American citizen voters. There were also nearly three million individuals who are registered to vote in more than one state. At the behest of Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), Florida legislators approved a measure to set up the 'Office of Election Crimes and Security' to "investigate, detect, apprehend, and arrest anyone for an alleged violation" based on election fraud tips from the public.
24Mar2022: Trump Sues Hillary Clinton and DNC over 'Unthinkable Russia Plot' in 2016 Election. PDFPresident Donald Trump on Thursday filed a federal lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, accusing them of "an unthinkable plot" to tie him to Russian interference in the 2016 election. The complaint, filed in the Southern District of Florida, also accuses others in the Clinton campaign and DNC of shielding the former secretary of state from the plot. "In the run-up to the 2016 Presidential election, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts orchestrated an unthinkable plot one that shocks the conscience and is an affront to this nation's democracy," the lawsuit says. "Acting in concert, the defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty," it says. "The actions taken in furtherance of their scheme falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement, and exploiting access to highly-sensitive data sources are so outrageous, subversive and incendiary that even the Watergate [scandal] pale in comparison." Trump claims in the suit that the conspiracy "was conceived, coordinated and carried out by top-level officials at the Clinton campaign and the DNC - including 'the candidate' herself." Trump has long accused Democrats and the Clinton campaign of conspiring to link him to alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election the subject of unsuccessful impeachment proceedings against Trump when he was in office.
24Mar2022: Real Clear Politics Poll: Donald Trump's Favorability Rating Tops Every National Political Figure. PDF President Donald Trump's favorability rating is in much better shape than every national political figure, including those the corporate media spend billions of dollars to protect. What's key about "favorability" is that it's basically a "likability" poll. A winning favorability rating means the public likes you, which can be even more important than your job approval ratings. What's so fascinating about Trump is that for the last five years, the corporate media have spent billions of dollars smearing the guy as a racist, sexist, predator, Russian puppet... And it's not working. There are several factors at work here: first, Trump's 2024 campaign slogan could simply be, "Had Enough?" The comparison between the prosperous and peaceful Trump years, especially the first three years, to the 24/7 horror we're living through under the Biden administration is striking and undeniable. Trump's hold on the GOP base is unlike anything anyone has ever seen before in modern politics. Even Ronald Reagan, one of the greatest presidents in history, did not win the kind of loyalty afforded President Trump. All over, one can still see Trump signs and flags everywhere, it's uncanny and unprecedented.

23Mar2022: AXIOS: Donald Trump Jr. Launches News Aggregation App called "MxM News". PDF Donald Trump Jr. launches a news aggregation app called "MxM News", hopes to compete with the likes of Apple News and Google News. Don Jr. the apps founder and creative genius behind the project, sees an opportunity to fill a void left by the Drudge Report's waning influence, especially on mobile. MxM News is looking to disrupt the mobile news space similar to how Drudge disrupted web publishing and Fox News disrupted cable television in the 1990's. The reason behind the MxM app is to combat what Don Jr. feels is a bias against conservatives in the news aggregation space. "As I travel around the country, the complaint I hear more than almost anything else is that people don't know what media outlets, journalists or stories they can actually trust" stated Don Jr.
23Mar2022: Breitbart Poll: National Republican Congressional Committee Poll Shows Democrats are in Trouble across 77 Battleground Congressional Districts. PDF The latest poll from the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) of 77 battleground congressional districts across the country showed that the Democrats face headwinds with voters as they are being held responsible for record-high inflation, skyrocketing gas prices, and out-of-control spending. The poll found that the cost of living, jobs, and the economy were at the top of the list of concerns for battleground voters, giving Republicans an advantage with those voters. Forty-six percent of the respondents indicated that they are mainly concerned with economic issues. Twenty-six percent of the respondents said inflation and the cost of living should be the most important issue for Biden and Congress to work on, while 15 percent are most concerned about jobs and the economy. Currently the Republicans hold a 24-percent advantage over Democrats on the generic ballot. Fifty-two percent of the respondents blame the Biden administration and Congressional Democrats' unwillingness to allow more oil and gas production in the United States for skyrocketing gas prices. In comparison, only 31 percent blame Russia's invasion into Ukraine and sanctions on Russian oil and gas. Respondents also overwhelmingly support Republicans focused on addressing Democrat-created crises.
23Mar2022: President Biden: "There's Going to be a New World Order due to the Pandemic and the Ukraine-Russian War!" (~1min) In a rare moment of coherence, Joe Biden claimed that a New World Order aimed at reshaping all of society is imminent thanks to the pandemic and the geopolitical conflict unfolding in Ukraine. President Biden stated at the Business Roundtable: "We're at an inflection point, I believe, in the world economy, not just the world economy, the world, that occurs every three or four generations," the president said. "[A general told me that] 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946 and since then we've established a liberal world order, and it hasn't happened in a long while. A lot of people died, but nowhere near the chaos. Now is the time when things are shifting and there's going to be a new world order out there, and we've got to lead it. We've got to unite the rest of the free world in doing it."
22Mar2022: RNC: GOP Takes Voter Registration Effort to Gas Stations Hoping to Turn Outrage to Political Muscle. PDF Republicans are hoping to turn the highest gas prices in American history under Joe Biden into a political bonanza, launching a nationwide voter registration effort at gas stations in hopes of re-capturing Congress in the fall election.
