Trump Has Been Sabotaged by the Medical Deep State

By: Cliff Kincaid

The Chinese virus has been treated as just a natural occurrence or unfortunate incident that necessitates that we have to cede more power over our lives to what critics have long called the Medical Deep State. Under pressure from a foreign threat, President Trump has relied on these health care “professionals.” But the result has been stories from the Washington Post about “How the Trump administration lost control of the coronavirus crisis” and the New York Times about how “The Coronavirus Is Coming for Trump’s Presidency.” This is the new narrative designed to bring down Trump.

The President has another option: put the military in charge of the coronavirus response and move quickly to a war footing with Communist China, the source of the outbreak.

Financially, in a major blow to the U.S. capitalist system and the world economy, more than $6 trillion in wealth in global stock markets was erased in one week over fears that the virus has been mishandled and the disease is spreading. China has been hit hard, too, but is able to recover more quickly because its economy and population are under the tight control of the communist dictatorship. It has more than enough people to sacrifice in a war with the West.

Conservative writers such as Matt Margolis note that President Trump was quick to ban travel with China, despite opposition from the U.N.’s World Health Organization (WHO). This was a decisive step. But the U.N. agency had also failed to act quickly to label coronavirus an international health emergency, and U.S. agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) botched the approval and roll-out of reliable tests for the disease. These testing failures have facilitated the spread of the disease and have been seized upon by the media as evidence of the Trump Administration’s incompetence.

At the same time, basic skepticism about the nature of the mystery illness has been suppressed, in the name of stopping “conspiracy theories,” as new developments raise more suspicion over the source and timing of an “outbreak” that is almost certain to become a pandemic, cause a recession, and threaten President Trump’s reelection effort. The deadly disease originated in a region also known for the Chinese Wuhan Institute of Virology, which conducts “research” on viruses that include SARS and the deadly and incurable HIV.

It looks like Trump was set up. “Now Trump Needs the Deep State to Fight Coronavirus,” gloated an online headline over an article by Ronald Klain, Obama’s Ebola czar. He insisted that Trump had to “work closely with foreign leaders and global institutions” in order to confront “a global-health security challenge.” But the WHO’s record is checkered at best. It now stands accused of conducting unethical vaccine experiments on 720,000 children in Africa without parental consent.

On March 3, we learned that the world’s first experimental coronavirus or COVID-19 vaccine was “administered” to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) General Chen Wei and 6 other Communist Party members. A photograph showed the communists getting the vaccine in front of a flag with a communist hammer and sickle.

It seems strange that the Chinese have developed a vaccine so quickly, after our own “public health professionals” have been telling President Trump that it will take many months, even a year, to get a reliable vaccine approved. China has also patented an anti-viral drug created by an American firm that is being used experimentally to treat the disease.

What’s also fascinating is that the photo was posted by Yanzhong Huang, a senior fellow for global health at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and “expert” on “global health governance.” Incredibly, he has just written an article for the CFR journal Foreign Affairs saying that the nature of the coronavirus crisis justifies more military-to-military exchanges between the Chinese PLA and the Pentagon. This is how, he claims, we can reduce mistrust between the two nations. He is also very concerned about “conspiracy theories,” including a scientific paper that the virus’s protein sequence included elements of HIV, the deadly virus causing AIDS.

For publicizing this theory, he noted, one website was banned from Twitter.

The globalist point of view is that we should accept what the public health professionals in China and the U.S. are saying. Anything to the contrary has to be tagged as a conspiracy theory and countered by information from the U.N.’s WHO. Indeed, WHO executive director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has thanked Google, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and other companies “for their efforts to direct users” to the WHO “and other credible sources of information.” A petition labels Tedros as a tool of China and faults the WHO’s initial failure to declare the virus a public health emergency. It calls for his resignation.

Even the CFR health expert, Yanzhong Huang, went on to say, “The [Chinese] government’s actions have lent credibility to the thesis that the coronavirus accidentally escaped a laboratory.” He noted, “In February, China appointed Major General Chen Wei, China’s top biowarfare expert, as head of the BSL-4 laboratory at Wuhan Institute of Virology. Because of Chen’s background, the appointment fueled suspicions about the virus’s possible connection to the BSL-4 lab.” This is the same general getting the vaccine.

Interestingly, after the Chinese admitted the virus was on the loose, the PLA announced that it had sent in a total of 2600 “medical personnel” to deal with the epidemic. It looks like a case of the PLA protecting military secrets, perhaps a bioweapon.

Another so-called public health professional, former Obama CDC Director Tom Frieden, has now joined the CFR as Senior Fellow for Global Health. He is president and CEO of Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative that received $225 million from Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Gates Philanthropy Partners,  which is funded with support from the Chan Zuckerberg Foundation (named for the founder and CEO of Facebook and his wife). Frieden’s goal is “adequate funding for global public health.”

In a statement on the bill signed by Trump that sends $8.3 billion more to the public health professionals, he said that Congress should “protect the United States through global partnerships that will tamp down COVID-19 and make the world safer from the next epidemic.” That implies more cooperation with the U.N. and China.

The group’s Senior Vice President, Amanda McClelland, participated in a  National Press Club event “to provide guidelines for journalists on responsible, proactive coverage of coronavirus.” One of the other participants was Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases and the original spokesperson for the CDC’s response to the coronavirus crisis.

Rosenstein’s Sister

Suspicions about the “responsible” nature of the advice were raised when Messonnier warned early on that “It’s not so much of a question of if this will happen anymore but rather more of a question of exactly when this will happen.” This took President Trump by surprise since the “professionals” had been assuring him that everything was under control and that COVID-19 was a flu-like virus that would be contained.

Then it came out that Messonnier was former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s sister. Recall that when Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation, Rosenstein was in charge and eventually appointed former FBI director Bob Mueller as Russia-gate prosecutor. Muller’s reign as FBI director was characterized by a failure to pursue evidence demonstrating that al-Qaeda was responsible for the post-9/11 anthrax attacks.

At this point in the crisis over coronavirus, it is not too late to consult the report issued by former Senator Tom Coburn M.D., “CDC Off Center,” about how the federal agency wasted hundreds of millions of tax dollars for failed prevention efforts and has been ineffective in controlling the disease. A case in point is the billions wasted on more than 30 years of research into an HIV/AIDS vaccine.

Even before Trump was elected, a group called CDC Spider, for CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research, had emerged, alleging that the federal agency is too cozy with corporate and special interests and outside parties. One of the complaints was that domestic staff resources were taken away from domestic priorities to work on global health issues.

As a result of this globalist perspective, the federal National Institutes of Health became a “partner” with the Wuhan Institute of  Virology. This kind of “cooperation,” now being touted as the solution to the crisis, did not stop the crisis from developing in the first place.

Coronavirus looks like a military threat, even an Act of War inflicted by China on the United States and the world. With President Trump’s approval, military medical leaders could now take the lead in solving the crisis. Emergency measures are needed.

Socialists Target Louisville City Council: Conquering the South Seat by Seat

The country’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), is running two comrades for the Louisville, Kentucky, City Council elections this coming Nov. 3.

These races should not be seen in isolation, but as part of a wider Marxist strategy to gain influence in the U.S. South.

The DSA and their allies in the pro-China communist group Liberation Road are targeting southern electoral races at every level. Their strategy is to gain power in local city councils across the South to consolidate local power and become competitive in statewide races. If the Marxists can turn only two or three southern states blue, the far-left and their Democratic allies will rule the United States in perpetuity.

DSA comrade Ryan Fenwick, a Louisville attorney, is running as a Democrat against an incumbent in Council District 10. When Fenwick ran for the Louisville mayoralty in 2018, he was heavily defeated. With more name recognition and an energized team of Louisville DSA comrades behind him, he has a much better shot this time around.

Comrade Robert Bell is running in the open 4th District race against several competitors. Bell, a teacher and “community organizer,” supports a “Green New Deal for Louisville, Public Ownership of Utilities, Expanded Free Public Transit, Housing as a Human Right, Improving Access to Medical Care, Reproductive Justice, Ending Food Insecurity, and Creating a Solidarity City,” according to a Progressive Candidates Facebook post.

Louisville DSA has more than 100 comrades. If Fenwick or Bell, or both, win the May primary, the DSA will likely call in doorknockers from Lexington, Bowling Green, and southern Indiana to help out. If the races look winnable, the DSA has nearly 60,000 members nationwide to draw on for donations and phone-banking assistance.

Liberation Road also has a strong presence in the city. They also work closely with Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, a far-left “community organization” with several thousand members and branches across the state.

Kentuckians for the Commonwealth helped defeat Republican Gov. Matt Bevin last year, so winning a couple of Louisville City Council races is well within reach for the local Marxist forces. Louisville is already dominated by the Democratic Party. If the Marxists gain a stronghold on the city council, expect both city and statewide politics to continue veering left.

Liberation Road turned Virginia blue in 2018 through its mass voter registration organization New Virginia Majority. Kentuckians for the Commonwealth works with New Virginia Majority in the State Power Caucus, an alliance of more than 20 organizations with a goal of mobilizing a mind-numbing 40 million new voters against President Donald Trump in the November elections.

Liberation Road recently started a new organization, Richmond for All, to influence politics in that city. In last year’s elections, the DSA elected one of their comrades, Michael Payne, to the Charlottesville City Council.

In North Carolina, the DSA has run several council candidates in the last two election cycles. In Durham, the Liberation Road front group Durham for All helped elect the majority of the city council and the mayor of Durham—the state’s largest city.

In Alabama, the DSA helped elect their endorsed candidate Randall Woodfin to the Birmingham mayoralty in 2017.

Liberation Road (then known as Freedom Road Socialist Organization) elected Marxist radical Chokwe Lumumba to the mayoralty of Jackson, Mississippi, in 2013, but he died unexpectedly only six months into his term. So Liberation Road came back in 2017 to elect his son Chokwe Antar Lumumba to carry on his father’s work.

Lumumba, Jr. wants to make Jackson, Mississippi, into “the most radical city on the planet.”

In Georgia, the DSA elected their comrade Khalid Kamau to the South Fulton City Council in 2017. The DSA also helped elect their friend “26-year-old rapper, Ph.D. student and openly queer black woman” Mariah Parker, to the Athens county commission in 2018. Parker ran on a progressive platform that put “racial and economic justice center stage” and won by 13 votes, according to In These Times.

Deeply Republican Tennessee is also being heavily targeted by the Marxists.

Liberation Road has organizations in Knoxville, Nashville, Memphis, and Chattanooga plus a training school, The Highlander Center, situated close to Knoxville. The DSA has chapters in all those towns plus Johnson City and Murfreesboro.

Working through their City Council Movement/Knoxville for All, the Knoxville Marxists elected DSA comrade Seema Perez to the Knoxville City Council in 2017. They elected another DSA comrade, Amelia Parker, in 2019, and only just missed out with Liberation Road member David Hayes.

In Nashville, which already has a radical-heavy city council, Liberation Road’s Nashville Justice League endorsed 15 Metro Council candidates, some of whom were successful.

DSA Nashville founding member Sean Parker won the Metro Council seat for District 5.

In black majority Democratic-controlled Memphis, Liberation Road’s Memphis for All and the local DSA have endorsed several city councils, Shelby County Commission, and mayoral candidates in the last two election cycles. Most have failed, but the DSA and Memphis for All-endorsed Michalyn Easter-Thomas did win Memphis City Council District 7 in 2019, and Lee Harris became Shelby County mayor in 2018.

DSA and Liberation Road are building a southern “counter state” to challenge the Republican dominance of the region. County by county, state by state, the Marxists are building their power in the South, while Republicans focus their attention on the Midwest. Several high “minority” population southern states are trending blue and could easily flip to the Democrats in the next two to three election cycles.

Liberation Road and DSA are working tirelessly to accelerate that process. The Republicans need to stop taking the South for granted before it’s too late. If the Republicans lose the South, the hard-left takes America.
