The China Virus was an Inside Job

By: Cliff Kincaid

We have lost 564K people to the China virus, while Europe has lost more than 1 million. But Avril Haines, China Joe’s Director of National Intelligence, refuses to say that China is an enemy. It is a “threat,” she conceded, but U.S. intelligence agencies are on top of the problem.

These are real people and real deaths. This is communism in action. And the slaughter continues.

The result:  3 million deaths have been linked to COVID-19 worldwide.

In general terms, she pontificates, the U.S. is faced with “adversaries and competitors, critical transnational threats, and conflicts and instability.”

This pablum costs $85 billion a year ($61.9 billion for the National Intelligence Program, as well as $23.1 billion for the Military Intelligence Program.)

Give us our money back. I want a refund.

President Trump was tough on China and has been proven right. Thanks to Trump’s Operation Warp Speed, a fact recognized by such people as Franklin Graham and Dr. James Dobson, we have the chance of surviving the deadly China virus through revolutionary vaccines.

The Europeans are way behind us, largely because of a vast bureaucracy that didn’t act fast enough and is now overly dependent on China.

Ignoring this mass murder, Haines said that “Domestic Violent Extremism,” or DVE, is “an increasingly complex threat that is growing in the United States.” In her Senate testimony, she referred to “white racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, including Neo-Nazi groups,” being “the fastest-growing terrorist threat they face.”

There was no mention of any communist groups active in the United States, many of which support Red China.

Regarding the China virus, as reported by CNN and other media, she said U.S. intelligence agencies do not know “exactly where, when, or how Covid-19 virus was transmitted initially” in China. She said there are two theories — that “it emerged naturally from human contact with infected animals or it was a laboratory accident.”

But how can they rule out that it was man-made and deliberately released? The answer is they can’t.  They are playing the communist dialectical game – giving us two choices that lead us in a direction that advances the communist plan. The government doesn’t want us to know that they know and that they will not tell us.

Haines alluded to “vaccine diplomacy” on the part of China, the source of the virus. Like “good” communists, dedicated to world domination, they release the virus and then offer their own vaccine as a solution, as they seek “to build influence and in some cases demand accessions from other governments” to control the spread, she said in a matter-of-fact manner.

In the meantime, why not hold China guilty for this diabolical assault and for crimes against humanity?

The answer is that U.S. intelligence knows the virus was man-made but that explanation can’t be offered publicly because it links U.S. Government agencies to the production of the weapon. This is the dirty secret.

People see headlines like, “Pentagon Develops Microchip That Detects COVID When Inserted Under Skin,” and thinks ordinary civilians are on the verge of getting implants from the government when the evidence suggests that the military recognizes we are in for a period of sustained biological warfare from China. News organs like “60 Minutes” won’t make the necessary conclusion that we are at war with China and that our troops are in desperate need of additional protection, beyond the life-saving vaccines.

Similarly, when vaccine maker Pfizer says a booster shot may be necessary,  the company is acknowledging something that former Trump adviser Peter Navarro understands and  writes about in the Washington Times: “The high degree of asymmetric spread —  along with the rapid and deadly mutations of the virus we are now observing —  suggest the possibility of a weaponized virus.”

But here’s his other punch line: “As to whether SARS-CoV-2 was genetically engineered, it is here where Dr. Fauci enters this dangerous picture: In 2017, without sufficient warning to the Trump White House, Dr, Fauci and his NIH colleague Dr. Francis Collins re-authorized the use of so-called gain-of-function research inside China’s Wuhan Lab. Gain-of-function is a genetic engineering tool that improves the ability of a virus to cause disease. In pushing for gain-of-function, Dr. Fauci and Dr. Collins unilaterally overturned a 2014 decision by the Obama White House to restrict such experiments because of their inherent dangers.”

Navarro is right. Last April I wrote the column, “Obama/Biden Financed China’s Virus Experiments,” looking at the evidence. I noted, “It turns out that one of the country’s most prominent medical and scientific organizations, the federally-funded National Institutes of Health (NIH), has been funding investigations in China’s most controversial and insecure lab of dangerous viruses in China.”

Then I added this column, “NIH Director in the Middle of China Virus Scandal,” about Collins, an Obama holdover who has a long history of collaborating with the communist Chinese regime.

Keep in mind that these dangerous experiments continued until 2014, when the “cooperation” was suspended, and then restarted in 2017 “without sufficient warning to the Trump White House,” Navarro says.

Our intelligence agencies know this. It didn’t take me $85 billion to dig this out.

Here’s some more background you can discover through a simple Google search (if you know what you are looking for) – it’s the history of the US-China Collaborative Biomedical Research Program. American taxpayers have been paying Chinese Communist scientists to conduct controversial experiments that give the communists expertise they can use in weapons.

The Chinese “researchers” at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were receiving assistance from the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch, University of Alabama, University of North Texas, EcoHealth Alliance, Harvard University, and the National Institutes of Health.

All of this was out in the open. You don’t need to be James Bond to discover this.

The Senate hearing on Wednesday on the “Annual Threat Assessment,” as determined by our intelligence agencies, ignores the real threat – those same intelligence agencies that knew what was going on and didn’t protest.

But Haines will not report that fact because the truth implicates Obama/Biden personnel in the production and release of the virus. They know the government has been infiltrated by China sympathizers, and our Intelligence Community has been infiltrated as well.

Politicians on Capitol Hill have their heads in the sand, pretending this evidence does not exist. They know the U.S. Government was involved in these dangerous experiments. They are afraid to follow the trail where it leads because it suggests the release of the China virus was an inside job with Chinese and American fingerprints all over the dangerous and deadly sequence of events.

Until we come up with something or someone that will investigate and name our enemies and then protect the American people, refund that $85 billion directly to the American people.

Frankly, what we desperately need is a Joe McCarthy-type figure in the Senate (or House) who will investigate these agencies and name the names, as Peter Navarro has begun to do.

Common Sense Gun Control – Prosecute Hunter Biden For His Gun Crimes

By: Daniel John Sobieski

Joe Biden is a liar and a hypocrite. His attempted executive order end-run around the Second Amendment contains nothing that would have prevented recent mass shootings and certainly wouldn’t make people in cities like Chicago safer on any given weekend. For example, restricting people from making guns at home from kits and regulating gun parts accomplishes nothing – no one is being killed with homemade “ghost-guns” Gang-bangers and drug dealers fighting for turf do not spend their time making guns from kits. C’mon, man, get real.

He lies about the lack of background checks at gun shows allowing undesirables to buy any kind of firearm that they want  Name one mass shooting with a firearm purchased at a gun show. And ever notice that no one ever gets shot at a gun show?

A Joe Biden unconstrained by facts or reality nonetheless wants to make background checks more universal than they already are. I have an idea for Joe Biden – how about making the background checks we already have work and how about criminally prosecuting those who violate our gun laws and recklessly threaten public safety starting with Joe’s son Hunter Biden? Those moves would be a powerful antidote and deterrent to gun crimes.

Background checks only work if the databases are diligently populated and maintained. Take the church shooting in Sutherland, Texas which killed 26 people. The shooter, Devin Kelley, should have been flagged in the database for prior infractions but was not. As Fox News reported:

Kelley – who killed 26 people when he opened fire at a church in Sutherland Springs on Sunday – had a domestic violence conviction the Holloman Air Force Base’s OSI unit failed to enter into an FBI database used to conduct background checks on gun buyers, officials revealed Monday.

One wonders how many gun crimes might be stopped by simply hiring a few more clerical workers to follow the requirements of existing law and make the existing system work. And the irony here is that Kelley was stopped from continuing his murder spree by a private citizen who grabbed his AR-15 and helped chase him down.

Stephen Willeford certainly could remind the self-righteous Biden that guns in general and the AR-15 in particular, which has been misrepresented by gun control zealots as an “assault rifle,” can be used by good guys to save lives as well as by bad guys to take them.  He is the hero of Sutherland Springs, Texas, who, hearing the sound of gunfire at a nearby church, grabbed the AR-15 he had taught others to use as an NRA instructor and chased down the mass murderer who had shot up the First Baptist Church before he could continue his murder spree elsewhere:

The hero who last November stopped the gunman behind the deadly Texas church massacre said using an AR-15 enabled him to end the bloodshed.  In an emotional interview with CRTV’s “Louder With Crowder” on Monday, Stephen Willeford described the gunfight and dramatic car chase that ensued to stop the shooter from slaughtering additional churchgoers. The former National Rifle Association instructor was home Sunday morning when his daughter told Willeford she had heard gunshots from the nearby Baptist church, prompting him to get his AR-15 rifle from his safe and load a magazine.  He ran to the church and confronted the alleged shooter, Devin Patrick Kelley, who fired shots at Willeford.  While taking cover behind a pickup truck, Willeford fired several shots at the gunman, who sped away in his car. Willeford ran to a truck stopped at a stop sign and asked the driver to help him to stop Kelley, who had a history of domestic violence and had been kicked out of the military.  The two men pursued the gunman, whom [sic] officials say wore tactical gear and a bullet-proof vest, down a nearby highway until the vehicle eventually careened off the side of the road.  When police arrived, Kelley was found dead on the scene with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head as well as two other gunshot wounds – one on his leg and one on his torso.  Officials believe the gunman took his own life.”If I had run out of the house with a pistol and faced a bulletproof vest and kevlar and helmets, it might have been futile,” Willeford said.  “I ran out with an AR-15 and that’s what he was shooting the place up with.”

Willeford is just one of the “bitter clingers” in Texas and elsewhere who shoot back, saving, not endangering lives, by being the good guys with guns stopping the bad guys with guns. Assault is a behavior,  not a weapon, and stopping a bad guy with a gun is not assault.

Joe Biden wants to keep guns out of the hands of the Stephen Willeford’s of the world, guys who prove that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. If Joe Biden had his way, Willeford wouldn’t have stopped Devin Kelley who, like Hunter Biden, got kicked out of the military yet was able to buy a gun. That is the problem that needs to be fixed, Joe Biden, enforcing existing reporting laws and punishing those who lie on their federal applications to hide the reasons they should be disqualified, like Hunter Biden. As Andrew McCarthy writes in the New York Post:

“Lie and try.” That’s what the feds call cases in which people who are disqualified from owning guns under federal law try to get a gun by concealing the disqualification. It is maddening but true that many of these people are not charged….

The purpose of the law is to prevent lethal weapons from falling into the hands of people who are unstable or dangerous. Thus, some of the disqualifications deal with criminal and similarly suspect behavior, such as prior convictions and dishonorable discharge from the armed forces, while others deal with conditions of instability and mental disturbance, such as narcotics abuse and mental-disability adjudications.

And notice what happened in Hunter’s case. He did not reveal his history of drug abuse, he got the gun, and he handled it negligently, to the point, according to reports, that his then-girlfriend found it in a car and carelessly sought to dispose of it in the trash bin of a local store — obviously because she was concerned about the dangerous potential of his having it.

This is the guy who smoked parmesan cheese he crawled on his carpet to find. Hunter Biden was kicked out of the military due to a drug problem and lied on his federal application to het a gun. He did not buy that gun at a gun show, He did not assemble it from a kit. Yet his careless handling of it could have resulted in another tragedy had the gun, disposed of not far from a school, been found by a child or a criminal.

Why hasn’t Joe Biden said that Hunter Biden should never have been allowed to buy a gun and that he should be criminally prosecuted for lying on his federal application? This is the class act who had an affair with his dead brother’s widow, an affair blessed by father Joe who said he was glad they had “found each other.” And the question is not only whether that was Hunter’s laptop but whether the shocking pictures and videos of Hunter are him. Yet for some reason, he never gets asked. As The Federalist reports:

Hunter Biden was the subject of a strange missing firearm case in 2018 after Hallie Biden, the wife of his late brother and subsequently Hunter’s girlfriend, tossed it into a trash can behind a grocery store near a high school, according to a strange new report from Politico. It appears Hunter, the son of President Joe Biden, might have lied on the federal forms he filled out to purchase the gun a few months prior, forms The Federalist has now obtained.

Hunter answered “no” to a question on the Firearms Transaction Record asking whether he was an “unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance.”…

The now-president’s scandal-ridden son was in numerous drug and alcohol rehab programs, including in 2003, 2010, and 2014, soon after being discharged from the military for using cocaine. According to the New Yorker, he also went on a cocaine binge in 2016. His infamous laptop he dropped off for repairs in 2019, a story which tech giants and the media aggressively tried to cover up during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, included graphic photos and video of Hunter allegedly smoking crack cocaine while engaged in a sex act.

It’s unclear whether Hunter was using drugs around the time of his firearm purchase or what timeframe the question “are you a user of” illicit substances implies. Hunter was, however, suspected of smoking crack cocaine in a Washington, D.C., strip club in late 2018. He purchased the firearm the same year on Oct. 12.

According to Politico’s reporting, Hunter Biden lied on his ATF Form 4473, the firearm transaction record and background check form, on October 12, 2018, when he swore under penalty of a $250k fine and 10 years imprisonment that he was not a drug user. Then, only 11 days later, Hunter’s then-girlfriend (the widow of his not-long-deceased brother, but not the mother of the child he sired with a stripper while he was living with his brother’s widow), Hallie, “disposed” of the handgun in a trash can outside of a grocery store.

First, prosecute Hunter Biden for federal gun crimes, Joe. Then we’ll talk.

The Unabomber and Other Transgender Pioneers

By: Cliff Kincaid

“Abortion Is Health Care” was the actual headline over an email I received from the Center for American Progress, with a message quoting a young woman as saying, “I celebrate my abortion, and no one can take that away from me.” This is today’s “progressive” point of view. The actual destruction of a human being is passed off as “health care.”

Such viewpoints also make their way into “news” stories. The quote about celebrating abortion was actually taken from a story in Teen Vogue, a magazine devoted to fashion, beauty, and entertainment news for teens.

Another example is the phrase “common-sense gun safety measures.” This means taking away Second Amendment rights from law-abiding citizens.

To cite another recent example, consider the phrase “gender-affirming” when discussing surgeries and chemical castration that are used on children. The media agenda today is to glorify perversion and make kids into pawns of the sexual revolution. They promote an industry, much like the abortion industry, which profits from destroying the biological basis of human life.

The agenda is either to kill kids or make them into something they are not. By any objective measure, this is child exploitation and child abuse.

As a veteran media critic, I’ve gotten pretty good at documenting the insidious inventory of slanted journalism techniques that constitute media bias. I have written many books on media misdeeds, including media malpractice – that is, deliberate deception or bias through gross negligence. But the media bias today has sunk even lower, to the extent of masking harm to children in benign and even favorable terms.

It is shocking that some Republicans have fallen for it.

Exhibit number one is a story from the fashionable and corporate-supporting Axios, a media outlet on the cutting edge of societal transformation, about “transgender children.” The story, by somebody named Orion Rummler, is one of the best examples of a style of “journalism” that is designed to undermine everything that is wholesome and good about growing up as boys and girls, based on DNA and the biological facts of life.

Here’s how it began: “Arkansas’ Republican-controlled House and Senate on Tuesday overrode GOP Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s veto of a bill that criminalizes gender-affirming care for transgender children.”

The bill was the “Save Adolescents From Experimentation Act.”

Writing for the Washington Post, an unusual outlet for a conservative governor, Hutchinson claimed he was for limited government and opposed to making the state into “the definitive oracle” in such matters.

Medical Experiments on Minors

But as Tucker Carlson noted in a debate with the governor, one can say the same thing about laws that prohibit minors from drinking beer and getting married. Carlson asked, “Okay, then why are we preventing kids from drinking? Sincere question — or getting married? Sincere question. Having sex? They’re not old enough to have sex, but they’re old enough to be chemically castrated? How does that work exactly?”

The term “gender-affirming” is actually DNA denial, a form of child abuse that exploits children so they can be made into cogs of the ongoing sexual revolution that is now expanding on the basis of the deranged belief that boys can be girls, and vice versa.

Not one critic of this insidious practice of sexual mutilation of young people was quoted in the piece. Instead, sexual activists and doctors in the business, as well as the ACLU, are quoted in favor of somehow changing boys into girls.

In order to understand this form of Cultural Marxism, please note the case of the Harvard-educated Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, about whom a psychiatric report said his mental state had deteriorated to the point where he had “fantasies of being a female” and “became convinced that he should undergo sex-change surgery.” This modern-day Luddite staged an 18-year bombing campaign that killed three people and injured many more before his capture by the FBI in 1996.

Today, such bizarre thoughts are apparently considered completely normal by the Democratic Party and Republicans like Hutchinson.

The founder of the modern gay rights movement, Harry Hay, was a member of the Communist Party who wore a dress and promoted the North American Man-Boy Love Association and the occult. He divorced his wife, after being diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease, before heading off on his perverted journey, finally declaring himself to be a “Radical Faerie.”

Or consider Leslie Feinberg, a male-to-female transgender member of the Workers World Party who also pioneered this “lifestyle.”  Feinberg was described by his supporters as “an anti-racist white, working-class, secular Jewish, transgender, lesbian, female, revolutionary communist.”

Another prominent advocate of “transgender liberation” is Bradley/Chelsea Manning, the former U.S. Army analyst sentenced to prison for espionage for his/her collaboration in the release by WikiLeaks of thousands of top-secret intelligence reports. Former President Obama commuted Manning’s sentence, which was originally 35 years in prison for espionage, after only seven years in prison. Manning was an open homosexual in the Army before deciding to become a woman.

Be All You Can Be

Today, under China Joe, men can be women in the Armed Forces, with the surgeries paid for by the American taxpayers.

One can argue that adults in the civilian sector should have the “right” to try to change genders, even though their DNA remains the same DNA they were born with. But children? The obvious agenda is to confuse and capture the youth, making them into cannon fodder for the revolution – and to vote Democrat.

These are confused young people, some of whom go through phases, who wonder about their sexuality. They need parental help and counseling. Most will outgrow their delusions.

It would have been appropriate for Axios reporter Orion Rummler to have quoted the ex-transgender Walt Heyer about the young people he has counseled who regret being forced to go through “transgender” surgeries and chemical treatments.  His website is “Sex Change Regret.” He was on my TV program talking about the destructive nature of transgenderism.

It was easy to find a story about this reporter in college participating in transgender events. The name on his Twitter page includes the words, “He/him, trans man.” Links are made to the groups “Trans Journalists Association” and “The Association of LGBTQ Journalists,” known as NLGJA.

The journalistic associations devoted to these special interest causes make sure reporters toe the line.

But no pressure was needed here.

Rummler went through a “training program” with the Association of LGBTQ Journalists and also says, “I wrote a story covering the LGBTQ community in Palm Springs, California during the NLGJA’s 2018 conference and received mentorship from reporters and editors with the New York Times, AP, and Fox News.”

Despite the good work of people like Tucker Carlson on this issue, Fox News has always been a financial backer of the NLGJA.

Journalists are Activists and Advocates

The biased Axios reporter, with an obvious special interest in the issue, gets his/her stories picked up by CBS News, spreading this disinformation of a sexual nature in ways that compound the damage. Another such story by the same reporter: “Pentagon to cover gender-affirming medical care for trans service members.”

Here’s another story by the same reporter carried by Yahoo! News: “Biden issues first-ever presidential proclamation for Trans Day of Visibility.”

The term “gender-affirming” is propaganda that obscures the reality of DNA as the most fundamental level of being a human being.

From a religious perspective, beyond science and human biology, one can argue that this is a full-blown assault on God’s plan for the human family.

The Axios story followed another such obscenity from CNN on the same topic, and you may have heard about this one. The article by CNN breaking news and politics reporter Devan Cole claimed, “It’s not possible to know a person’s gender identity at birth, and there is no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth.”

A quick search also disclosed political activities by this “journalist” when he was in college at George Washington University.

These are current examples of “bias” that fall into the realm of dishonest story-telling that is designed to make the themes of Cultural Marxism acceptable to Americans. These “journalists” are doing real damage to young people.

Exposing these lies is a critical part of the process of restoring our nation to moral and spiritual health.

Biden and Democrats are Draining Northern Triangle Countries of Labor

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

President Bukele told Tucker Carlson: “the best thing for both of is to keep our people here’.

Few may remember when FNC show host Tucker Carlson visited el Salvador to interview President Nayib Bukele. President Bukele validated a condition this author has talked about often, labor. With migrants leaving these countries to find a better economic/working environment, employment and economic stability can never be achieved in countries such as Honduras, Guatemala, or El Salvador.

He is right.

Sure these countries are suffering for many reasons causing their respective citizens to seek new lives elsewhere, but draining the population over enticements given by the Biden administration has long-term devastating consequences. The better policy would be for the Biden administration to have meaningful conversations with US corporations to move their manufacturing operation from China to Latin America, in our own hemisphere and help stabilize these countries, stop illegal immigration and punish China for all the offenses, deadly and economically.

The numbers are getting worse for both sides. In a feeble attempt to go the diplomatic route on the causes of the migrant crisis, the Biden administration dispatched an envoy to El Salvador for discussions. Well, that did not go well as President Bukele has refused the meeting, and rightly so.

The Hill has reported:

The president of El Salvador reportedly refused to meet with a senior diplomat from the U.S. this week, while demanding the Biden administration cease criticizing his government.

The Associated Press reported that President Nayib Bukele declined a meeting with Ricardo Zuniga, the U.S.’s envoy to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, the so-called “Northern Triangle.”

Bukele also reportedly said that he would not meet with any U.S. diplomats until the Biden administration ceases its criticism of his government, following a statement from State Department spokesman Ned Price on Monday referring to the separation of powers in El Salvador’s constitutional government as “eroded.”

The Salvadoran president was also denied a meeting with President Biden after traveling to Washington unannounced a few weeks ago.

The State Department did not immediately return a request for comment from The Hill.

“[W]e enjoy … strong relations with El Salvador and its people, and we’ll continue to work closely with our Salvadoran partners to address the challenges in the region. And that includes, as we’ve been talking about, irregular migration. It includes corruption and impunity, it includes governance challenges. It includes respect for human rights, economic opportunity, and security,” Price said on Wednesday at a press briefing.

Bukele has also lashed out at U.S. Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA) over her frequent criticism of his government and other Central American governments.

In part from the AP: Specifically, the two said Bukele was angered by State Department spokesman Ned Price’s comments Monday that the U.S. looks forward to Bukele restoring a “strong separation of powers where they’ve been eroded and demonstrate his government’s commitment to transparency and accountability.”

Price’s comments followed a spat between Bukele and one of his fiercest U.S. critics, Rep. Norma Torres, a Democrat who co-chairs the Central America caucus in Congress.

In a series of Tweets last week, Torres accused Bukele of behaving like a “narcissistic dictator” indifferent to the plight of Central American migrants who undertake great risks to reach the U.S.

She attached a photograph that was widely circulated in 2019 showing the bodies of a Salvadoran migrant and his daughter laying lifeless in the Rio Grande on the Texas border.

“Send me a pair of glasses so I may see the suffering of your people through your eyes,” wrote Torres, who came to the U.S. as a child from Guatemala.

Bukele pointed out that he wasn’t even in office at the time of the deaths, which came during a previous surge in Central American migration under the Trump administration. He urged Salvadoran and other immigrants living in Torres’ Southern California district to vote her out of office.

“She doesn’t work for you, but to keep our countries underdeveloped,” he wrote.

U.S. policy in El Salvador has focused on promoting economic prosperity, improving security, and strengthening governance under the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America. Congress has appropriated nearly$2.6 billion for the strategy since FY2016, at least$410million of which has been allocated to El Salvador. The Trump Administration has requested $445 million for the strategy in FY2020, including at least $45.7 million for El Salvador, and an unspecified amount allocated for the country under the Central American Regional Security Initiative(CARSI). Future U.S. engagement in El Salvador is uncertain, however, as the Administration announced in March 2019 that it intended to end foreign assistance programs in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras due to continued unauthorized U.S.–bound migration. In June 2019, the Administration identified FY2017 and FY2018 bilateral and regional funds subject to withholding or reprogramming. It is unclear how funds appropriated for FY2019 in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019(P.L. 116–6)and FY2020funds may be affected. Bilateral relations also have been tested by shifts in U.S. immigration policies, including the Trump Administration’s decision to rescind the temporary protected status (TPS) designation that has shielded up to250,000 Salvadorans from removal since 2001.A House-passed bill, H.R. 6, would allow certain TPS designees to apply for permanent resident status., would allow certain TPS designees to apply for permanent resident status. More country details here.

Meet David Chipman, Biden’s New ATF Director

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Biden announced his gun czar at a presser on April 8, 2021. Who is he?

Well, this cat wrote an opinion piece a few weeks ago. In part noted by Newsweek:

(…) declaring that the Constitution’s Second Amendment envisions firearms as being “well regulated.”

Chipman’s article, printed in The Roanoke Times, criticized local governments in Virginia that responded to state legislative firearm reform efforts by declaring themselves as “Second Amendment sanctuary” counties. These counties’ sheriffs and local officials claimed that the Constitution allowed them to block any laws that violated gun owners’ freedoms. “The Second Amendment envisions firearms as being ‘well regulated,’ and individual sheriffs aren’t entitled to decide whether a particular regulation is constitutional—that’s the job of the courts,” Chipman wrote. He also accused local sheriffs and officials of stoking fears, spreading lies, and valuing “unregulated access to guns above the lives of their neighbors.”

Chipman studied justice as an American University undergraduate and studied management as a Johns Hopkins University master’s student.

A year after graduating from American University, he began a nearly 23-year career at the ATF. During that time, he worked as a special agent in charge of ATF’s firearms programs and also as a member of the ATF division bearing similarity to special weapons and tactics (SWAT) teams in police departments. He also reportedly disrupted a Virginia firearms trafficking operation that supplied illegal guns to New York City while working at the ATF.

After leaving the agency, he worked for a year and a month as a senior advisor for the municipal firearm reform advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety. He also worked nearly three years as senior vice president of public safety solutions for ShotSpotter, a gunshot detection system.

Chipman, an ATF veteran, works also for the former Rep. Gabby Giffords team on gun control issues.

Reforms, rules, and regulations, otherwise called initiatives include:

Biden Admin has No Approach to Challenge China on Spratley Islands

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

“An armed attack against the Philippines’ armed forces, public vessels, or aircraft in the Pacific, including in the South China Sea, will trigger our obligations under the US-Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters.

Known as maritime militia.

“We share the concerns of our Philippine allies regarding the continued reported massing of PRC maritime militia near the Whitsun Reef,” Price said, referring to the People’s Republic of China.

More than 200 Chinese boats were first spotted on March 7 at Whitsun Reef, around 320 kilometers (200 miles) west of Palawan Island in the contested South China Sea, although many have since scattered across the Spratly Islands. President Joe Biden has vowed a robust defense of allies and, in a rare point of continuity with his predecessor Donald Trump, has supported strong pushback against Chinese assertiveness. source

*** Big money says that the Biden admin is too feckless to respond, meaning China gains control over the Spratley Islands unless other immediate nations take military action. Why? President Biden asserts he had a two-hour phone conversation with President Xi… no mention of the pandemic or the contested claims in the South China Sea. Maybe Kamala knows.

The South China Sea is one of the most important bodies of water on the planet. Besides China, multiple nations including Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines have their own, sometimes overlapping, claims to portions of the South China Sea. In addition to historic claims, according to the United Nations Convention for the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), a nation has sovereignty over waters extending twelve nautical miles from its land and exclusive control over economic activities 200 nautical miles out into the ocean.

The South China Sea is rich with natural resources such as oil and gas. It accounts for 10 percent of the world’s fisheries and has provided food and a way of living for millions of people in the region for centuries. The region is also one of the busiest trading routes, with about one-third of global shipping and more than $3 trillion worth of global trade passing through this area annually.

When Xi Jinping became Communist China’s supreme leader in 2013, he regarded transforming China into a maritime power, including the expansion in the South China Sea, as a key component to his great Chinese rejuvenation. According to the Chinese Communist Party’s own publication, “On the South China Sea issue, [Xi] personally made decisions on building islands and consolidating the reefs, and setting up the city of Sansha. [These decisions] fundamentally changed the strategic situation of the South China Sea.” source

Photo dated February 20, 2021.

Maxar satellite photos show that China has added landmass to the Subi Reef. Further, the Philippine Coast Guard/National Task Force West also has photos of 200 Chinese ships moored at the Whitsun Reed.

***

The Spratly Islands consist of more than 100 small islands or reefs surrounded by rich fishing grounds – and potentially by gas and oil deposits. They are claimed in their entirety by China, Taiwan, and Vietnam, while portions are claimed by Malaysia and the Philippines. About 45 islands are occupied by relatively small numbers of military forces from China, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Vietnam. Since 1985 Brunei has claimed a continental shelf that overlaps a southern reef but has not made any formal claim to the reef. Brunei claims an exclusive economic zone over this area.

The islands are strategically located near several primary shipping lanes in the central South China Sea; includes numerous small islands, atolls, shoals, and coral reefs, and the attraction for all the countries claiming control/ownership is nearby oil- and gas-producing sedimentary basins indicating potential oil and gas deposits, but the region is largely unexplored.

Why the notion that the Biden administration has a feckless approach on China and the disputed island? China is assessed to have 7 outposts (Fiery Cross, Mischief, Subi, Cuarteron, Gavin, Hughes, and Johnson reefs); the outposts on Fiery Cross, Mischief, and Subi include air bases with helipads and aircraft hangers, naval port facilities, surveillance radars, air defense and anti-ship missile sites, and other military infrastructures such as communications, barracks, maintenance facilities, and ammunition and fuel bunkers. source

China’s “Death to America” Plan

By: Cliff Kincaid

With some conservatives in virtual hysterics over the rollout of former President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed and still resisting life-saving vaccines, it’s no wonder that Chinese President Xi Jinping must feel he is in the driving seat of the “Great Reset” and the transformation of the world order.

The U.S.-based anti-vaccine “resistance movement,” which claims the vaccines are more dangerous than the virus, is just what China needs to escape blame for the deaths of millions.

We are usually accustomed to Iran’s rulers proclaiming, “Death to America,” but it’s the new Iranian partner, Communist China, that is doing the real dirty work. The two nations signed a 25-year agreement of “comprehensive cooperation,” laying the groundwork for major changes in the Middle East that threaten Israel’s survival.

Conservative websites are full of scare stories about the vaccines when the new vaccine technology endorsed by Trump holds out the hope of defeating this dangerous super-virus and finally returning our nation to a period of normalcy.

Some are suspicious of the new vaccine technology, but technology is advancing in many different areas. A new technology for developing vaccines is simply one advance in the world of science and human health that holds great promise for the American people. In a different area, thanks to Trump, Chinese company Huawei’s emerging dominance of emerging 5G telecommunications technology was reversed.

Opposition to advances in science and technology which can benefit Americans constitutes a modern form of the Luddite mentality, at a time when scientific superiority is an absolute must for national survival

The anti-technology resistance, represented in the past by such fanatics as the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, oppose progress and will make America further dependent on China. These opponents of progress are mostly on the left, as they oppose oil and gas technology that is made in America and instead worship Mother Earth, but they are also on the right and take the view that anything and everything that comes out of Big Pharma is harmful to human health. Yet it is a demonstrable fact that many drugs have saved lives and extended the human lifespan.

If America listens to these modern Luddites, we will certainly lose to China in the technology race.

What is lacking in some cases is what Trump did with American companies when he directed them to develop an anti-China virus vaccine to save American lives.

Former White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, who did the film, “Death by China,” before he joined the Trump Administration, says with satisfaction that “The father of the [coronavirus] vaccine is Donald J. Trump.” Cutting through bureaucracy and regulations, he had predicted the U.S. would move in “Trump time” to have the vaccines quickly. He and the president were proven correct. It was a magnificent achievement.

But some naysayers don’t want to give Trump credit.

The Trump supporters who have now turned on his signature achievement — vaccines in record time — fail to come to grips with the fact that the vast majority of conservative Republicans fighting for the freedom to choose on this issue nevertheless endorse taking the vaccine. Trump knows more than most about the dangers of this virus, having contracted it. Later, he got the vaccine as a backup.

One columnist praised Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for banning vaccine passports without noting that he has fully endorsed the use of the vaccines and has in fact pioneered their use on the elderly population in his state.

Sensational claims about the vaccines being used for purposes of “genocide” and depopulation make no sense either, by virtue of the fact that the small nation of Israel, which came into being after the Holocaust, is leading the world in vaccinations.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has spent most of his life-fighting terrorism and protecting Israel’s existence as a nation-state, was described by a Pfizer executive as “obsessive” in his determination to save his nation from the China virus. Referring to Netanyahu, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla was quoted by the Times of Israel as saying “He called me 30 times,” in order to obtain the Pfizer vaccine.

Interestingly, Bourla is the Greek-born son of Holocaust survivors.

The effort was so successful that Netanyahu proclaimed that the vaccine brought Israel “back to life” after so much pain, death, and suffering from the virus.

Recognizing the same thing can happen to America, evangelist Franklin Graham did indeed support the vaccines. He cites the story of the Good Samaritan who helps others, in the modern version, by getting vaccinated and preventing the spread of the disease. His Samaritan’s Purse organization has partnered with local entities in North Carolina to vaccinate 3,500 people.

Pastor John Hagee of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, a leading supporter of Israel, was infected with the coronavirus last year and has now taken the vaccine. A spokesman said, “Pastor Hagee himself is taking the vaccine. Pastor Hagee believes in both the power of prayer and modern medicine. These are not mutually exclusive.”

At the same time, Hagee is warning, “Our world is being restructured, leaving God out of the picture. The coronavirus changed America forever.”

We can recognize the dangers of China and other political figures manipulating the circumstances surrounding the control of the disease while acknowledging it is a killer, whose death toll is now more than 2.8 million (with a U.S. death toll above 556,000).

Endtime Ministries founder Irvin Baxter passed away “with complications from Covid-19,” his organization said last November. His book, The China War and the Third Temple was a novel about a war between Communist China and the United States that produced “plague and global disaster.” In the Bible, this is referred to as the Pale Horse of the Apocalypse.

Now, that plague has taken Baxter’s life.

My own book, The Sword of Revolution and the Communist Apocalypse, predicted China’s leadership role in the global communist revolution

As people debate the meaning of the Book of Revelation, including the four horsemen of the apocalypse, Charisma Magazine has run an article noting that Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, has given his opinion. He got the disease and has dismissed claims that the vaccine is somehow the biblical mark of the beast and heralds the appearance of the anti-Christ.

If anyone has pretensions of being an “anti-Christ,” it is Chinese President Xi Jinping, as America’s leaders continue to dawdle in the face of Chinese aggression, genocide against Muslims, and mass murder using the China virus against the entire population of the world. He seems confident that his regime will overcome the campaign to move the 2022 Winter Olympics out of China.

The “depopulation” scheme is already underway, as China mows down innocent people with a virus that most assuredly came out of a Wuhan lab and that many people fail to resist by taking life-saving vaccines to protect their families and friends.

Epilogue to a Friendship

By: Tabitha Korol

I had been invited to lunch with an old friend with whom there is no more common ground. Despite all my efforts to explain that I will no longer be censored, she extends yet another invitation, cannot address specific issues, uses words without substance, and remains in her “safe space.” Such is the mindset of the left.               

***

I could not overlook the sincerity of her many overtures for lunch and renewed friendship, which is why I decided to write at length – not only as a courtesy but to lay bare our crucial differences. She believed we could maintain a friendship despite our ideas, and I didn’t see that possibility. She votes for the destruction of my country, for a sellout to China, to welcome losing our individual freedoms, and for the numerous hate-spewing antisemites that the Democrats (Pelosi, et al) put into powerful positions, the most renowned being Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and AOC.

Her actions changed our schools, encouraged the terribly divisive Critical Race Theory that boosts a deleterious racial divide, the over-sexualization of our kindergarteners, and a sickness of transgenderism whose consequences are horrific mutilation, regret, and increasing suicides. While I supposed her daughter’s son is secure in a special school (although I cautioned of past dangers to the disabled/handicapped), I was surprised to learn that her son’s children are homeschooled. Hence, she has no concerns about all other children in our country, their indoctrination against America, and our founding principles. Did she know her grandchildren may face grave danger because of accusations of “white supremacy,” and today’s curricula, where students learn that inferior whites are the source of every affliction and inequity? The darker-skinned children are thus infused with a false sense of victimhood and rage, with defeatism that actually decreases their morale, their motivation, and their chances to thrive. Hiring decisions are now based on skin color, not merit, and white farmers have just been banned from the federal COVID relief program because of their complexion; their toil, expenses, equal suffering due to blight, climate, and coronavirus are annulled. The ideology of the left damages everyone.

I reminded her that her vote went to financing Antifa and the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement so that they might loot businesses, damage private property, topple monuments, ruin entire neighborhoods, harm residents, and work to defund the police so that their destruction might continue unconstrained. Her vote is partly responsible for Biden’s increased taxation to provide for migrants’ care, food, clothing, and even one-on-one schooling by teachers who refused to teach our children in public schools! Her views are destroying our economy, and we will soon live and die as those in Russia, Cuba, China, Venezuela, etc. Rush Limbaugh said, “No nation has ever been taxed into prosperity.” My friend and her husband always seemed so bright, but how could I maintain a friendship with the enemy of my country? I had a lump in my throat now that my thoughts, once random, were taking shape in the printed word.

Although she said she respected my views, she invariably stifled them. She had a knack for deftly switching subjects before I knew what hit me. She alibied her views as complex and nuanced, but these are vagaries and evasion, not even euphemisms, but empty, meaningless syllables. I granted she was not a weapon-wielding radical, but she empowered others to do her dirty work. There is no middle ground: one is either for us or against us.

I believe that she never admitted her true allegiance because she subconsciously knew it was immoral – and anti-patriotic. Whatever she favors – socialism/communism, or fascism/Naziism, or globalism, or Islam – it is not Americanism but a totalitarian ideology that endangers us all. The common German who turned his Jewish neighbor over to the Gestapo also suffered during the war, if not by torture, then from fear, starvation, bombings, and loss of loved ones. Even the American traitor will eventually succumb to America’s future.

Votes that put President Trump into office resulted in four years of increased freedom, the ability to thrive as far as our intellect and energy allowed, whereas Obama/Soros/Biden is already leading to our subjugation to despots. I could never look this woman in the eye amid our collapsing world. When the first illegal alien was permitted entry, raped and murdered one of our own, spread some disease among the population, I would recognize that her actions had contributed. When this administration continues to provide trillions of dollars to foreign entities while our own citizens live on the streets, I’ll understand that she bore no remorse. When AOC’s Green New Deal destroys a major food source – cattle for beef and dairy products – I would remember who put her into office. When our government again remunerates Palestinians to kill Israelis, I would remember who directed my income to kill my kin.  When Bill Gates continues to buy and neglect agricultural land to thwart food production and depopulate the world (the way Stalin starved millions), I would wonder if she connected the dots. Those who starve and die would not be assuaged by her “nuances.” China also owned nearly 30 million acres of American farmland by mid-2019, then valued at more than $1.4 billion, with the help of her allegiance to the Democrat Party.

When once I assumed that she was so busy working, that she was really ignorant of the changes in our world, I now grasp she knew more than she alleged, that her vote would impact the end of our Republic.

Had this “friend” read my book, Confronting the Deception, Inflamed by 9/11, fired up by the Deep State, she’d have known that I spent two decades confronting the deception, in Islam, academia, and the media. I had long been dealing with “complexities and nuance” – prepared for another such occasion. However, I do recommend to her and my readers, Hitler’s Naziism and our left, to face the similarities between fascism and our world; they are not coincidental.

There is a stunning video, a brief warning, by a Holocaust survivor who recognizes the commonalities between today’s world and the events of the 1930s, yet we still have neighbors, some quite learned and multi-degreed, who pretend to slumber for their own personal interests. Selling out one’s country for the sake of an exclusive “nuance” is not love of country, but love of self at the expense of one’s country. It’s a form of betrayal with a lame alibi to assuage one’s conscience. I was dim-witted and naïve – shocked to find that some of our acquaintances, who should have been eternally grateful for living in America, were underhandedly against Israel and our heritage. I remain baffled by the depth of their insidious philosophy.                                                          

I continued to write that we are controlled by those who won a fraudulent election, an almost bloodless coup, aided by the skills, wealth, and sheer power of High Tech. America’s children are being taught what to think, and our adults are being controlled on how to think and what to say. If their influence can obstruct the President of the United States from reaching out to his citizenry, then it could happen to anyone. Remember the famous poem by Pastor Martin Niemoller. If there is only one who is not safe, we may rest assured that the second is not far behind. Thomas Jefferson warned us that, “A government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have.”

The prime instigator of conflict is fear, and using the coronavirus as that fear has forced us into lockdowns, to not work or attend school, to not gather in groups or travel to family, to wear ineffective face masks, and maintain distance from friends and family. Our “leaders” have frightened many into accepting injections not proven thoroughly effective and safe into the future, while also withholding statistics from us, and continuing to press us to surrender weapons that we might one day need for self-protection.

Recall that a non-academic Bill Gates instituted the damaging Common Core standards into our school systems; the non-medically trained Bill Gates wants to enforce his vaccinations on everyone for a national tracking system to monitor and control our buying, business, and travel activities, not to mention increasing his colossal profits (his depopulation statements have been removed from the Internet). The non-scientist Bill Gates is backing the development of sun-dimming technology to darken our planet and ruin our sources of food; and the bigoted,  narcissistic Bill Gates has declared the science of math racist. The arrogant, fraudulent Dr. Antony Fauci, a ten-year associate who often collaborated on the Gates Foundation Vaccine Action Plan, including gene-based therapies, who stands to inflate his standard of living, has been caught on numerous lies.

As gasoline prices will soar because we are no longer self-sustaining (Biden closed many Trump accomplishments that grew our economy), unemployment increases while we must all support illegals, and agriculture becomes more limited (Gates and hyperinflation), it will be more expensive and difficult-to-impossible to get farmed produce to the cities. My “old friend” may still believe that her business will continue despite Biden’s promises of “affordable housing” throughout suburbia while her neighbors shop for food in the local dumpster.

With the southern border wall left unfinished, Biden is again increasing taxes (seen as the largest ever experienced in America) for Obama’s coveted redistribution of wealth, also known as outright theft from the working class to sustain the illegal and idle. News reports already announce the higher percentage of the criminal element – drug cartels, sex traffickers (of which children make up 27%), because happy, healthy, safe, and self-sufficient people do not emigrate. Our homeless sleep on the streets and the invaders are housed in hotels. The children who do make it here in safety will be followed by family members because of chain migration, and our grandchildren will never know the America we had.

In closing, I was wrong to think she lived in a bubble; she knew her repeated invitations included no compromise. In all her overtures, she offered only more of the same. Albert Einstein is oft credited with saying that insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result. I regret to add that the promise of lunch and friendship with this “old friend,” on the same old terms, is just not in the cards.

American Corporate-funded Chinese Communism

By: Cliff Kincaid

It seems strange to some that Major League Baseball (MLB) pulled its All-Star game out of Atlanta, to punish Georgia for its voter ID law, but signed a deal with a Chinese company for rights to broadcast MLB games. It’s an indication that MLB recognizes China is in charge internationally, and that the Republicans’ days as a national political force in the United States are numbered. The MLB wants to help hammer the final nail into the coffin of the Republican Party. That means crushing free, honest, and fair elections, to make sure another Trump-like figure can never win a national election.

Former President Donald Trump thunders, “It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back — we have more people than they do — by far! Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck. Don’t go back to their products until they relent. We can play the game better than them.”

But Trump has no power anymore. He is still banned by media allies of the ruling One-Party state. His Operation Warp Speed will save millions of Americans from the China virus but he rarely gets credit for that, and many of his (former) supporters are still afraid of the vaccine. However, this vaccine roll-out demonstrated what could happen when an American president mobilizes the resources of American science and technology to save American lives, rather than serve Chinese interests.

In terms of numbers, China has more “people power” exercised through the Chinese Communist Party and a global alliance of communist groups around the world, including the Communist Party USA. This group, thought by many to be insignificant, was behind the nomination and confirmation of Deb Haaland as Secretary of the Interior, in charge of America’s oil and gas resources on federal land. Bowing to “Mother Earth,” she favors legal pot to generate jobs and government revenue in the new economy.

In order for Communist China to dominate the world, any chance of a Republican comeback on the national stage must be nipped in the bud. The MLB has, in effect, become an adjunct of the Chinese Communist Party. Other corporations have followed this trend. Marxists see this as a major development in America’s transition to socialism and communism.

The Republican counter-attack — to remove MLB’s decades-old antitrust exemption — is too little too late, and won’t pass anyway in a Democratic Party-controlled Congress.

What this means is that the days when the Republicans were the party of Big Business are over. The GOP will be left with the people who elected Trump – middle-income Americans. Ironically, what can possibly save America in the current predicament is what the Marxists originally proposed – a working-class revolution.

Domestically, conservatives need to take advantage of the one group formerly in the Democratic Party camp that is now totally disillusioned with Marxist politics – the workers and their families, who, in the words of Barack Hussein Obama, want to “cling” to their guns and religion.

If you’re perplexed by big corporations making deals with China, while attacking America’s system of government (such as states administering federal elections), it makes sense to Marxists. These are prime examples of what the Marxists call the highest stage of capitalism. It means old-fashioned capitalism is finished and is being replaced by monopoly capitalism and the power of what’s called “finance capital,” the hedge funds and big banks. Marxists call this imperialism, except today it’s on China’s terms.

China is today’s global imperialist power, using a pandemic caused by the China virus to consolidate power.

On cue, in regard to Biden’s $3 trillion “infrastructure” plan, socialist scholar Paul LeBlanc’s article, “Socialist Convergence and the Green New Deal,” is relevant. Written before Biden “won” the election, he says: “It is possible and necessary to build a powerful mass socialist movement in the United States by 2030 that could be in a position to provide an effective challenge to capitalism and transition to a socialist democracy.”

We have to understand, as Karl Marx predicted in the Communist Manifesto, that the new developments in America, on the road to socialism and then communism, include putting the means of communication (Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) in the hands of the state and using capitalism as a hammer to force the rest of us into compliance with the socialist agenda of the ruling class.

We have some freedom left in America but it’s quickly dissipating. In China, as even the Biden State Department report on China shows, there is no freedom. Our future, if the Chinese model is imposed on America, includes:

  • arbitrary or unlawful killings by the government.
  • forced disappearances by the government.
  • torture by the government; harsh and life-threatening prison and detention conditions.
  • arbitrary detention by the government…
  • political prisoners.
  • the lack of an independent judiciary and Communist Party control over the judicial and legal system.
  • arbitrary interference with privacy.
  • pervasive and intrusive technical surveillance and monitoring.
  • serious restrictions on free expression, the press, and the internet, including physical attacks on and criminal prosecution of journalists, lawyers, writers, bloggers, dissidents, petitioners, and others as well as their family members, and censorship and site blocking.
  • interference with the rights of peaceful assembly and freedom of association.

This stage of development is something that V.I. Lenin and Marxist scholars have written about for decades. Depending on the particular historical circumstances and conditions of a country, certain things will occur. As I see it, based on my study of Marx, who was a keen observer of America during the Civil War, we are now in the process of the state exercising control (though not direct ownership) of the major means of production. That includes actual production of consumer goods and monetary manipulation through the Federal Reserve.

Remember a key plank of the Communist Manifesto was “Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.” By one estimate, Federal Reserve spending during the pandemic has exceeded $7.4 trillion.

In effect, major engines of corporate capitalism have become prime movers of the historical process of moving a country from capitalism into socialism. They have become instruments of the state.

There are some honest leftists recoiling in horror at all of this. But they call it fascism. True Marxists regard it as a significant stage on the road to world communism.

Taking this process one step further on the global level, Secretary of the Treasury Janet L. Yellen just gave a speech on “International Priorities” that included “working with G20 nations to agree to a global minimum corporate tax rate…”

This is the beginning of a global tax, which requires what they call “global governance.” But don’t think the so-called “woke companies,” as Trump called them, will pay the bill. You will. On top of a rise in the corporate tax rate, which will be passed on to consumers, there will likely be a “financial transaction tax,” also known as the Tobin tax globally, to finance world government.

Ignoring China’s role in mass murder, Yellen added, “Beyond our borders, as the pandemic has made clearer than ever before, the global community is in this together.  We will fare better if we work together and support each other.”

On that basis, the American government agencies and major corporations that worked with China before the release of the virus will continue to do so, as if nothing has changed.

At this point, we need a real “people’s revolution” against the Marxists in power in China and America.
