RINO/Romney Clone Kelly Loeffler Among Corrupt Senate Virus Profiteers

By: Daniel John Sobieski

As Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA, and ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, valiantly defended President Trump against the deep state coup trying to unseat the duly elected President of the United States, the mind pondered the possibility of a Sen. Collins from Georgia defending the President on the Senate floor. Instead, we got a big business donor whom we are assured has all the boxes checked and an “R” next to her name. You know, someone like a Mitt Romney or a Susan Collins or a Jeff Flake.

With Collins, we would have been assured of a passionate conservative unabashedly loyal to the Trump vision of draining the swamp. Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, whom President Trump campaigned for and helped to victory over Stacey Abrams in a contested election has paid back Trump with a questionable choice in Kelly Loeffler.

Loeffler has been making all the right noises, at least until her election to the Senate in her own right is assured. After that, it’s anybody’s guess.

Loeffler has received the endorsement and support of President Trump and the Senate Republican establishment, most likely due to the silly policy of backing an incumbent and to avoid conflict with Georgia’s governor in a state the Democrats covet.

My guess is that she would most likely be another Susan Collins or Lisa Murkowski rather than a Marsha Blackburn. That is the assessment of conservative icon and guru Mark Levin as well:

Conservative radio icon Mark Levin on Sunday called Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp “another” Mitt Romney and said that Kemp is “about to appoint a RINO” — business executive Kelly Loeffler — to the Senate while trashing conservatives such as Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)….

Prominent conservative organizations ranging from the March for Life, the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), and the Tea Party Patriots have backed House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins (R-GA) over Loeffler.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a strong ally of President Donald Trump and supporter of his America First policies, said that Kemp is “hurting President Trump” by nominating a business executive who donated “$700k plus to Mitt Romney and nothing to Trump until she wanted in the Senate?”…

Rep. Gaetz’s criticism of Gov. Kemp’s supposed pick for the U.S. Senate has prompted Kemp aides to attack the Florida populist conservative.

Kemp aides called Gaetz an “acid-washed jean shorts”-wearing Floridian with “Stacey Abrams syndrome.” They also said Gaetz was an “oddly submissive” outsider telling Georgians what to do.

Kemp should have listened to Gaetz who unlike some panicked pundits and prognosticators is not a weather-vane Trump Republican or a lukewarm conservative. At least it seems Loeffler learned the Senate ropes quickly, feeling right at home with the other millionaires. “Public service,” it seems, can be very lucrative.

If you ever wondered how public servants get so rich serving the public, or why the Senate and House are filled with so many millionaires, part of the answer is that they are often privy to knowledge not available to the rest of us. Knowledge is power and it can also be very profitable if you are among the legislators that can take advantage of it before any of us common folk hear about it. Just ask Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, who exploited knowledge provided in a private briefing about the Wuhan virus and its possible impact and along with her husband, sold stock worth millions just before the Chinese Wuhan virus spread worldwide and tanked global markets:

The Daily Beast reported Thursday that Loeffler sold stock that was owned by her and her husband on Jan. 24, the same day she sat in on a closed-door coronavirus briefing as a member of the Senate Health Committee with the Trump administration, with Dr. Anthony Fauci in attendance.

According to the report, she sold stock in Resideo Technologies “worth between $50,001 and $100,000.” The company’s stock price “has fallen by more than half” since Januar

In addition, 27 out of 29 transactions in February by her and her husband were sales. One stock purchase was in a company called Citrix, a teleworking software company, and was worth between $100,000 and $250,000. The company’s stock, as The Daily Beast noted, had seen a bump since the virus outbreak grew.

The report also claims Loeffler and her husband sold jointly-owned stock worth between $1,275,000 and $3,100,000 during the Jan. 24-Feb. 14 timespan, according to filed transactions.

Her husband, Jeffrey Sprecher, is chairman of the New York Stock Exchange.

In her defense, Loeffler says her portfolio is handled by a blind trust. This is the standard defense of the elites who point out that they are rich enough to pay others to handle their money so if something smells talk to them. Most people don’t have blind trusts. But sometimes they have blind and misguided faith in their leaders.

The stock was sold the same day after a private briefing. And there was one purchase – the stock of a company whose technology allows people to interact with health officials and doctors and work from home. A good investment for those with insider knowledge of the Wuhan flu’s impact. As she prepared to vote on which of her constituents get a measly $1,000 check she was making sure her financial ducks were all in a row. There are too many coincidences here that remind one of Hillary Clinton’s adage that rules and laws are for the little people.

Again, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp surprised many with the appointment of Loeffler and not former Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA, former ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee who valiantly defended President Trump against the deep state coup trying to unseat this duly elected President of the United States to fill the Senate seat and finish the term of Sen. Johnny Isakson, who is leaving the Senate for medical reasons. Loeffler did end up voting to acquit President Trump in his impeachment trial, yet conservatives have questioned her bona fides based on her past associations with Utah RINO Sen. Mitt Romney and Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams, whom President Trump helped Kemp defeat. Collins is challenging Loeffler for a full Senate term in the currently delayed Georgia Republican primary.

Collins will certainly have plenty of ammunition with this revelation of swamp creature activity. President Trump campaigned on draining the Washington D.C. swamp and Loeffler, it would appear, went to Washington to wallow in it, to take advantage of special knowledge of an impending killer pandemic that would take down the global economy to safeguard her family’s financial future, even as she prepared to debate bills outlining what meager relief the America people and her constituents might get. While Americans are literally fighting for their lives amidst an uncertain and chaotic economic future, Kelly Loeffler decided to take decisive action to safeguard her family portfolio in a classic bit of insider trading. She, and others like her, are a national embarrassment, as she is to her party and President Trump.

The selection of Loeffler by Kemp was indeed an odd way to pay Trump back for holding a Kemp rally and helping him to victory in a contested gubernatorial election with Democrat Stacey Abrams. Collins was considered and showed himself to be a staunch Trump defender and genuine conservative:

Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp nominated business executive Kelly Loeffler for the Senate on Wednesday despite President Donald Trump and the conservative base’s concerns regarding her ties to Planned Parenthood, Stacey Abrams, and previous Democrat donors.

Gov. Kemp tapped Loeffler to replace the outgoing Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), who will retire at the end of December. Loeffler will reportedly describe herself as “pro-Trump” despite conservative criticism of her as well as her lack of support for the president during the 2016 presidential election….

The Family Research Council (FRC) was the latest pro-life organization to express concern over Loeffler’s lack of pro-life credentials.

Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins said in a statement Tuesday:

“Family Research Council Action is concerned about the likelihood that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp is considering a candidate to fill the remaining term of Senator Johnny Isakson that has no public record validating a conservative political ideology. While Governor Kemp does have a conservative pro-family record, Kelly Loeffler does not.”

Despite assurances concerning her adherence to core conservative values and Trump’s drain-the-swamp agenda, Loeffler, the former CEO of Bakkt, a bitcoin trading, and a storage platform, has been all over the map on who she donates to and supports, a record in stark contrast to that of the steadfast  Collins for whom Donald Trump Jr. held a fundraiser:

Donald Trump Jr., President Trump’s son, hosted a fundraiser for Collins in late October and said in November that Collins “is a fighter and exactly the kind of person Republicans should want in the senate. We need someone who gets it, not someone who will have to learn on the job.”…

Loeffler donated $750,000 during the 2012 presidential election to Romney super PAC Restore Our Future. The financial executive has also donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to former Speaker Ryan’s political campaigns and PACs. Now, when the question of her potential Senate appointment has come to media attention, Loeffler donated $100,000 to Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee that is raising funds for the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC)….

Loeffler is the co-owner and co-chairman of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) Atlanta Dream.

After the Trump administration announced plans in 2018 to cut family planning funding from abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood, WNBA President Lisa Borders said that she and the league “stands with Planned Parenthood.”

Loeffler’s Atlanta Dream has also pushed back on some socially conservative policies in Georgia.

In 2016, The Atlanta Dream was one of more than 100 businesses and universities that opposed state Sen. Josh McKoon’s (R-GA) Religious Freedom Restoration Act that would protect companies’ and Americans’ religious freedom.

Trump once said that he donated to both Democrats and Republicans because he said he never knew in his business dealings who he would need a favor from. Loeffler’s associations are more ideological and contrary to anything President Trump now has in mind:

Loeffler has even donated to many Democrats, including former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT), Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), and America Coming Together political group, which was primarily funded by George Soros and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

Say what? Politics is said to make strange bedfellows, but Soros and Loeffler making common cause together?

Rep. Collins’ colleague, Republican Matt Gaetz has warned Kemp that picking Loeffler may make him a one-and-done governor with no political future once Loeffler is free to vote her true conscience.

Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL, a staunch ally of President Donald Trump, said that Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp is ending his political career by nominating business executive Kelly Loeffler over Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA.

Kemp is known for his pro-life views and his support for restrictions on conception-to-birth abortion-on-demand. So why did he nominate Loeffler whose positions are not even close?:

Many conservative and pro-life groups across the political spectrum have come out to oppose Loeffler’s nomination to the U.S. Senate. Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the SBA List, objected to Loeffler’s position as a member of the board of directors of the Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. Dannenfelser called the hospital an “abortionist training hub.”

“Kelly Loeffler should be disqualified as a GA Senate appointment. She’s on the board of Grady Memorial Hospital, the largest abortion provider in the state,” Dannenfelser said. “Grady is an abortionist training hub. Its doctors are leading advocates AGAINST @BrianKempGA pro-life laws.”

Loeffler may not be the lone Senator taking advantage of inside knowledge of the Wuhan virus:

California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein took to Twitter on Friday to deny she did anything improper when she sold between $1.5 million and $6 million in a biotechnology company’s stock before the market crashed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The New York Times reported that Feinstein and three other senators sold large amounts of stock in late January and early February, as federal officials publicly downplayed the threat of the virus. The sales came shortly after Trump administration officials provided classified briefings to senators on the threat from the virus, the Times, and other media outlets reported….

Feinstein’s comments came as a furor erupted around reports of stock sales by GOP Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, chairman of the Intelligence Committee. He and his wife sold 33 stocks on Feb. 13 worth a total of $628,000 to $1.7 million, according to media reports, including more than $200,000 in hotel chain stocks. Many of the stocks have plunged in value since the pandemic struck the U.S.

Shame on them all. Georgia voters in November will still have a chance to rectify Kemp’s error by picking Collins for very important reasons. He has not profited from a national emergency using information meant to help protect the welfare of the American people. He is a rock-ribbed conservative who will never betray his pro-life party.

CCNS is Retracting Award Given to John Bolton

By: Citizens Commission on National Security, July 9, 2020

Last year, the Citizens Commission on National Security (CCNS) was planning to present an award to John Bolton to honor his service to America’s national security. It was the “Admiral James ‘Ace’ Lyons Award for Distinguished Service to America.” The event was scheduled for August 16, which turned out to be the day that President Donald Trump called his national security team to New Jersey to discuss negotiations to remove most, or all, of the U.S. troops from Afghanistan. Bolton got the call the day before, and the National Security Council sent current Deputy National Security Adviser Matthew Pottinger to accept the award and give the policy speech that Bolton had planned to deliver.

We were obviously admirers of Bolton’s career working for Presidents Reagan, both Bush presidents, and President Trump. His views on Iran were consistent with ours, meaning he understood that the JCPOA would have no impact on Iran’s becoming a more civil, less hostile country. Nor would it end Iran’s pursuit of deliverable nuclear weapons. Yet they were able to collect more than $100 billion of previously frozen assets, which they used to promote jihad in the region and support a variety of terrorist and militant organizations. We also liked Bolton’s views on Israel, and his tough no-nonsense positions on North Korea and China as well.

But with the release last month of Bolton’s book, “The Room Where It Happened; A White House Memoir,” we have decided to retract the award, which was in fact never received by Bolton. He was gone from the administration before we could get it to him. We have read the published excerpts of the book and have seen most if not all of his TV interviews.

We find that Bolton’s actions toward President Trump, by releasing this very controversial book at this time, were deplorable for many reasons. Judge Royce Lamberth, in turning down a last-minute bid by the Trump administration to halt the release of the book, largely because it was already widely distributed at the time, said in his ruling that “Bolton could have sued the government and sought relief in court. Instead, he opted out of the review process before its conclusion.”

He added: “Unilateral fast-tracking carried the benefit of publicity and sales, and the cost of substantial risk exposure. This was Bolton’s bet: If he is right and the book does not contain classified information, he keeps the upside mentioned above; but if he is wrong, he stands to lose his profits from the book deal, exposes himself to criminal liability, and imperils national security. Bolton was wrong.”

But Judge Lamberth made clear that he was convinced by the government, in a sealed hearing, that the book does contain classified information. He wrote, “the Court is persuaded that Defendant Bolton likely jeopardized national security by disclosing classified information in violation of his nondisclosure agreement obligations.”

At least five members of Trump’s administration, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Fred Fleitz, former chief of staff to then-National Security Adviser Bolton, have pushed back on various Bolton assertions.

Bolton insists that Trump lacks “a guiding philosophy,” “principles,” that he’s “not fit to lead” and that nearly all of his decisions are based on what will help him politically, not what’s good for America. We certainly disagree with those accusations.

Even worse than all that, Bolton gave his interpretations of President Trump’s private conversations with world leaders, plus his views of other actions of President Trump’s that he found lacking in substance, accuracy, and wisdom.

Democrats and their allies in the media are upset with Bolton because they say he should have talked to the House or Senate during impeachment when it might have mattered. Bolton pushes back on that, saying that the Democrats were guilty of “impeachment malpractice” both by keeping it too narrow and by being so partisan. Bolton argues that doing what he is doing now will have a better chance of helping to get Trump out of office than the Democrats’ failed impeachment effort. Bolton has made himself a man without a country, or at least a political party.

When he says that the impeachment might have worked if they had investigated other matters, he doesn’t lay out any potentially impeachable offenses that could have possibly gained enough Republican support in the Senate to have mattered, in terms of convicting and removing Trump from office.

Caroline Glick, the Israeli journalist who considers herself a friend of Bolton’s, put it this way:

Bolton complained that Trump has no foreign policy strategy.

But this is simply not true. The consistency of Trump’s foreign policies across the board makes clear that the President has a clear and well thought out strategic vision and operational perspective.

Trump’s strategic goal is to make America stronger – first and foremost at home. Trump ventures into the world not to deter enemies or embrace allies per se. He goes out into the world to rebuild America’s industrial base by bringing back the factories and firms that decamped to China and Mexico and other foreign lands over the past 30 years and taken millions of American jobs with them. Trump doesn’t care about arms races for their own sakes. He cares about them because he wants America to be number one and because he wants more defense industries hiring more Americans in America. This “America First” perspective in turn has achieved the goals of deterrence and weakened America’s enemies more quickly and effectively than military-based deterrence strategies that seek deterrence for its own sake.

This then brings us to Trump’s operational perspective. Trump’s preferred tool for advancing his foreign policy agenda is economic power, not military might. The 45th president has wielded economic sanctions and offensive economic policies to bolster America’s global posture and advance its national interests more effectively and won greater success with them than anyone ever dreamed possible.

Bolton never understood what Trump was doing. And rather than respect the businessman who came out of his gilded tower in Manhattan to run for the presidency and won, rather than try to understand and align his thinking with his boss, Bolton belittled Trump and his achievements. Towards the end of his tenure at the White House, Bolton seemed to reject Trump’s very right to see the world in his own way.

On Iran, the Paris Climate Accords, Israel, NATO, and China, Trump’s instincts have been outstanding, in our opinion. Bolton and his book come across as pique and anger at the man who hired him as National Security Adviser for 18 months. When asked by ABC’s Martha Raddatz if money was the motive, Bolton snickered that it wasn’t about the money. But the Trump administration may come after him for the profits from his book if it can be proven that he broke protocol and released classified information.

People who have hated Bolton for being too hawkish, a neocon, or for failing to have come forward during the impeachment process, now quote him as if his words are coming from the burning bush.

For all of these reasons, the Citizens Commission on National Security is officially retracting from John Bolton the First Annual “Admiral James ‘Ace’ Lyons Award for Distinguished Service to America.”

America’s Useful Idiots

By: Allen West | CCNS

“Useful idiots” is a phrase attributed to Vladimir Lenin, who supposedly used it to describe communist sympathizers in Western Civilization.

It is a very appropriate descriptor when it comes to the so-called “woke” mob of the so-called “resistance” that has overtaken the streets of America. Well, let me rephrase that: They have overtaken the streets of major population centers in America. The infestation of wokeness and idiocy seems concentrated in the very places where progressive socialist policies have failed in America.

Consider the idiocy of a city in Colorado that is incarcerating people who do not wear a mask. Yet these same leftists claimed that criminals had to be released from incarceration due to the threat of COVID-19. Or consider the idiocy of going into the home of private citizens and confiscating their weapon, their right to keep and bear arms, for no apparent reason, other than they defended their property, safety, and security against the invasion of the “woke” mob — the useful idiots.

In Seattle, the useful idiots established their own autonomous zone, driving out law enforcement. The mayor of Seattle described the autonomous zone called CHOP as having a festive atmosphere. Well, that ended once the threats, looting, and murders of two young black men happened, and the mayor ordered police to reestablish law and order. Now, the useful idiots of Seattle want to recall the mayor.

Lesson learned — you cannot appease, acquiesce, or compromise with the mob, America’s useful idiots.

What is amazing to me is that we have these young black boys and girls who have joined the useful idiocy. Consider what happened at the University of Wisconsin where the black student union demanded the removal of the statue of President Abraham Lincoln. It appears they believe, wrongly of course, that Lincoln did not do enough for blacks — what?

Hmm, President Lincoln, the first Republican president, lost his life because of his commitment to freedom for Blacks. What more do the useful idiots think Lincoln should have done? Even in his own words, President Lincoln talked about giving the last full measure of devotion, his words from the Gettysburg Address.

And the absurdity does not end there. Consider, over Memorial Day weekend, useful idiots tore down the statue of Frederick Douglass. Douglass’ story is beyond amazing, and he should be the example that the young black members of the useful idiot club follow.

Douglass was a freed, self-educated slave who became a leading voice for freedom and abolition of slavery. And do not forget the defacing of the memorial to the 54th Massachusetts Regiment of the Civil War in Boston. They were the first all-Black unit to serve America. They are my predecessors.

So, why do you tear down statues of Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, or memorials to Black soldiers? Only one answer, you’re a useful idiot.

America’s useful idiots want to embrace a philosophy of governance that is the antithesis of the liberty and freedoms that they enjoy. Do not believe me? Well, how about our woke little temper tantrum kids take a trip to Hong Kong. There you will find young people resisting the very ideology that our young people want to live under. How about our useful idiots talk to those Venezuelans who now reside in the United States, like former Miss Venezuela Carmen Maria Montiel, and learn just how awesome socialism truly is.

America’s useful idiots are busy searching and destroying anything that they claim is connected to systemic racism. Then why are these little cherubs aligning themselves with the Democrat Party? If we were to do a truly historical analysis of the Democrat Party, you would find the real purveyors of systemic racism in our country. I could go on but think about the history of a political party that voted against the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. A political party that created our first domestic terrorist organization, the Ku Klux Klan — oh, yeah, they created the second one also, Antifa.

The KKK was established to prevent freed Blacks, thanks to Republican efforts, from voting – Republican! Heck, the first Congressional Black Caucus was not Democrat. Jim Crow, segregation, lynching, all the darkest moments in U.S. history are tied to the very political party of which these useful idiots belong.

And just a reminder, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed because of a Republican Senator, Everett Dirksen. The longest filibuster in U.S. Senate history was done by Senate Democrats seeking to block the civil rights bill from even getting to the Senate floor. And West Virginia Senator, Robert Byrd, was one of them. He was an Exalted Cyclops in the KKK. He never switched political parties. He was praised by people such as Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden. Yet Byrd’s statues and memorials have not been targeted for destruction — why?

Yes, useful idiots.

How did we get to this point? Simple, we stopped teaching history and civics. Those subjects were replaced with social studies, which is just the study of leftist ideological agendas. Our education system is no longer based upon learning, educating, it is focused on indoctrinating. Leftists have overtaken our school boards, the most important elected positions in America. Yet, it is the elected position that routinely has the least amount of voter participation.

Lenin was correct. Western Civilization would topple because of useful idiots advancing the ideals of socialism, communism, and Marxism. And it began in the halls of our academic institutions. The irrational emotionalism that is spreading like cancer across America is quite disconcerting, utterly illogical.

The problem is that there are those who believe you can appease the mob. That you can have a rational discussion with a useful idiot. What we can do is take a stand, speak up, and just say no!

If we fail to say no to America’s useful idiots, then another of Lenin’s quotes will come to fruition — “the goal of socialism is communism.”

COVID-19: Scientific Disinformation is, Quite Literally, Killing Us

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) | CCNS

For the sake of global health and the development of effective treatments, we need to end the political pretense that the coronavirus pandemic was a naturally-occurring outbreak and ascertain its true origin.

For many, the thought of a highly infectious and deadly man-made virus being released from a laboratory is too psychologically horrible to contemplate — not to mention its catastrophic political and economic ramifications.

Nevertheless, the issue is no less than one potentially affecting the survival of mankind, if not honestly addressed.

Until now, objective scientific inquiry has been hampered by China’s refusal to fully disclose the information it possesses. In addition, Beijing has conducted a politically-motivated scientific disinformation campaign to avoid responsibility — one facilitated by some Western scientists with a vested interest in the outcome and by an uninformed and servile media.

That includes, ostensibly, censorship by scientific and medical journals, conducted under the guise of editorial discretion — a policy which seems to favor, overwhelmingly, the Chinese Communist Party’s narrative that the pandemic is just another naturally-occurring transmission from animals to humans.

In a new scientific study, “The Evidence which Suggests that This Is No Naturally Evolved Virus,” the authors explain, that SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, possesses structural and biochemical features not present in other coronaviruses.

“The properties that we now see in the virus, we have yet to discover anywhere in nature. We know that these properties make the virus very infectious, so if it came from nature, there should also be many animals infected with this, but we have still not been able to trace the virus in nature.”

The authors identify several unique features of SARS-CoV-2 that strengthen the case for purposeful manipulation in the laboratory.

SARS-CoV-2 has six unique amino acid insertions that create a dual binding and cell entry system that could explain the observed multiple clinical effects. They compromise the functions of olfaction and bitter/sweet receptors, blood cells, immune response, nerve cells, and various tissues, such as the cells lining the intestines.

The spike protein, responsible for viral binding and cell entry, also appears “pre-adapted” for human infection, which is even present in the first COVID-19 patients. This indicates that SARS-CoV-2 did not undergo the human adaptation process normally seen in animal to human transmissions.

Artificial modifications, such as those described, could present serious obstacles to producing effective and safe vaccines.

The authors further elaborate on how, where, when, and by whom SARS-CoV-2 may have evolved through experiments in laboratories.

The authors identify specific scientific publications by Chinese and American researchers, in which they demonstrate and discuss how coronaviruses have been genetically manipulated to produce new viral entities that are potentially more infectious and deadly for humans.

Given all the available data, the likelihood that SARS-CoV-2’s structure and properties are the result of a natural evolutionary process is very small.

Those who support China’s narrative, therefore, need to account for the unnatural characteristics of SARS-CoV-2 and provide more convincing evidence before demanding acceptance of the yet unproven theory of natural occurrence.

Retribution against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) – The Last of this Series

By: Retired General Paul Vallely | CCNS

Operation Nemesis 13.0

Retribution against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)

Plan XIII.  No Compromise for the Wicked CCP


– Reflections upon the Pandemic Outbreak in Brazil

“(This pandemic) is selectively targeting the CCP and is aimed at eliminating the CCP and those who are pro-communist or who have close ties with the CCP… If one upholds one’s inner goodness, reflects on one’s actions, and rejects the CCP—the representative of the greatest evil, one will be protected by the divine.  The pandemic occurred because of the CCP, and the situation will change when people change their attitudes toward the CCP.

– From “Where Ties to the Chinese Communist Party are Close, the CCP Virus Follows“, editorial by the Epoch Times

On July 11, the CCP media rushed to report “President Trump Wearing a Mask” as the headline news.  The CCP media gloated that the Brazilian President, an American ally, is infected.  Then the CCP posed an insidious question that “Tropical Trump” is infected and will President Trump be the next?

Being atheists in nature, the communists label all religions as “superstitions” or a “spiritual opioid.” Hence, the communists cannot possibly comprehend why President Trump is the chosen one by God and protected by God. The communists are also clueless about why so many people around the world are praying for President Trump. As the fierce battle between the good and evil proceeds, more and more people realize not only President Trump is the hope for the United States, he is also the hope for the entire world.

Brazil is hit hard in this pandemic due to its close tie with the CCP. An in-depth analysis on this subject was published on the Chinese Epoch Times.  Brazil is only one of many countries that bent over to the CCP in this pandemic. Brazil’s case shows how the CCP has exploited the pandemic to distance countries from the United States.

Another Boris Johnson?

On July 7, Brazilian President Bolsonaro was tested positive for the CCP virus (also called Coronavirus).  Bolsonaro is the second national head infected by the virus after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.  Before Johnson was hit by the virus, he dodged warnings from America and insisted on using Huawei’s components in the British 5G network. Fortunately, the repressive measure of Hong Kong National Security Bill awakened Johnson in time.  Recently, Johnson’s stance on Huawei hardened, and consequently, he has recovered as the overall pandemic situation in Britain improved.  Will Bolsonaro be another Johnson?

Alliance with America

Since 2009, China has replaced the United States as Brazil’s largest trading partner. At about the same time, CCP’s Multinational Corporations poured into Brazil, dominating the energy and telecom sectors. China is now the largest buyer of Brazilian soybeans, iron ore, beef, and other unprocessed goods.  In 2019, China imported $63 billion worth of goods from Brazil, accounting for 28% of total Brazilian exports while the United States ranked second at $30 billion which is 13% of total Brazilian exports.  Brazil is CCP’s major target in Latin America. Very quietly Brazil has been infiltrated by the CCP since 1974 as the two countries formed diplomatic relations.

In October 2018, during the Presidential campaign, Bolsonaro boldly criticized the CCP for buying so much in Brazil.  His critics made headline news and that earned him the Presidency.  Many enthusiastically expected that “Tropical Trump” would effectively establish a close relationship with the United States and break away from the CCP.

Since taking office, Bolsonaro has tried forming a stronger alliance with the United States.  In August 2019, Bolsonaro sent his son, Brazilian Foreign Minister Eduardo Bolsonaro, to meet with President Trump during the Amazon fire crisis. This past March, Bolsonaro and his son also met with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago.  In June, Bolsonaro followed the lead of the United States by warning the WHO of a possible withdrawal from the organization.

Brazil’s Intensified Trade with CCP

Bolsonaro has also attempted to intensify the trade with the CCP. In October 2019, Bolsonaro visited China for the first time after taking office. During the visit, he and Xi issued a “Joint Statement” to continue strengthening the relationship. The two national heads signed 10 memos covering a variety of areas, including education, mine, energy, agriculture, telecom, and tourism.  Later, Bolsonaro told the media that Brazil is willing to sell soybeans, meat, oil, and iron ore to the CCP.  On November 13, after meeting with Xi, Bolsonaro claimed at a press conference that “China is increasingly close to Brazil’s future.”

CCP’s Retaliation

On March 18th, Eduardo Bolsonaro, Brazilian foreign minister, the son of the Brazilian President tweeted that the CCP government had concealed the truth on the epidemic.  Eduardo pointed out, “this is the fault of China (the Chinese government), and freedom is the only way out.” Soon after Edward tweeted, Yang Wanming, CCP’s ambassador to Brazil fiercely reputed.  Within 2 days, the CCP made a series of retaliation. On March 19, the CCP issued a “Solemn Statement”, which reads:

“Eduard’s anti-China speech is very inappropriate and will harm the friendship between China and Brazil.  We strongly condemn your tweet, request you to withdraw it, and apologize to the Chinese people…”

Our embassy tweeted: ‘Your remarks are not unfamiliar; you are just learning how to speak from your friends. You recently went to Miami and brought back the spiritual viruswhich poisoned the friendship between Chinese and Brazilian people. You lack basic common sense and an international perspective. You are ignorant of China, ignorance of the world, and ignorance of history. We urge you not to compete for the position of the American spokesperson in Brazil, otherwise, you will lose miserably.’

Brazil’s Compromise

According to the Chinese embassy in Brazil, tweets from the embassy quickly received 100,000 views. Major Brazilian media reported this! Brazil’s House Speaker Rodrigo Maia immediately wrote on social media: “On behalf of the Brazilian House of Representatives, I apologize to the Chinese government and Ambassador Yang for the inappropriate remarks that Congressman Eduardo made”. The embassy also reported receiving many phone calls and emails supporting the CCP’s position.

On May 4, 2020, data released by the Brazilian Ministry of Economy showed that in April, Brazil’s foreign trade surplus with China reached US$6.702 billion, an increase of 18.5% from the previous. Meanwhile, the pandemic also gravely worsened in Brazil.

Brazil’s Tragic Loss in Pandemic

On February 26, 2020, the first CCP virus case emerged in Brazil, which was also the first case in Latin America. By July 12, there are over 1.8 million confirmed cases with a death toll of 72,000 in Brazil.  Now Brazil is one of the countries hit the hardest in this pandemic. Why CCP’s “effective measures for containing pandemic” did not seem to work in Brazil at all? Can the profits from CCP’s orders offset the impact of the CCP virus on Brazil’s economy? How about the damage to the health and lives of millions of Brazilian people?

Bolsonaro did not follow his promise made during his campaign and instead, he has sought a middle ground between the United States and the CCP.

The Way Out

During this pandemic, the CCP enjoys playing the role of “The Savior of the World” by luring countries like Brazil with much-needed medical supplies. The CCP’s goal is to further isolate these countries from the United States and make it one step closer to achieving its global domination.      For the well-being of people and for the future of countries, it is time for countries like Brazil to be awakened to the evil nature of the CCP. They must face reality and divorce the CCP demon.

” To defeat the CCP, simply depending on ordinary secular means will never be enough. The communist specter has greater power than humans, and this is the underlying cause of the CCP’s continuous expansion. However, evil can never rival the divine. If humans can stand by the divine and abide by divine will, they will be blessed and overcome the specter’s infernal arrangements.

The CCP is the enemy of all humanity, having established the bloodiest yet most powerful tyranny history has ever seen. All nations and peoples must resist its global ambitions if they are to secure their future and that of all civilization. The evil CCP is destined for elimination; thus, to reject the CCP is to avoid sharing in its fate.”

They Really Mean No Marxism No Peace

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Today looks just like 1966. The founders of the Black Panther Party, Huey P. Newton, and Bobby Seale wrote a 10-point plan that is being played out across the nation today.

Chris King's First Amendment Page: KingCast explains Huey ...

Huey Newton

cranes are flying: The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the ...

Bobby Seale

Frankly, the FBI Director, Christopher Wray, should call back the former agents, mobilize a team and run a counter-intelligence surge for domestic gang/terror sweeps.

Three Key Things PBS Black Panther Documentary Left Out ...

For those that may not remember, here is the old plan:

What We Want Now!

  1. We want freedom. We want power to determine the destiny of our Black Community.
  2. We want full employment for our people.
  3. We want an end to the robbery by the capitalists of our black and oppressed communities.
  4. We want decent housing, fit for shelter of human beings.
  5. We want education for our people that exposes the true nature of this decadent American society. We want education that teaches us our true history and our role in the present day society.
  6. We want all Black men to be exempt from military service.
  7. We want an immediate end to POLICE BRUTALITY and MURDER of Black people.
  8. We want freedom for all Black men held in federal, state, county and city prisons and jails.
  9. We want all Black people when brought to trial to be tried in court by a jury of their peer group or people from their Black Communities, as defined by the Constitution of the United States.
  10. We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace.

What We Believe:

  1. We believe that Black People will not be free until we are able to determine our own destiny.
  2. We believe that the federal government is responsible and obligated to give every man employment or a guaranteed income. We believe that if the White American business men will not give full employment, the means of production should be taken from the businessmen and placed in the community so that the people of the community can organize and employ all of its people and give a high standard of living.
  3. We believe that this racist government has robbed us and now we are demanding the overdue debt of forty acres and two mules. Forty acres and two mules was promised 100 years ago as redistribution for slave labor and mass murder of Black people. We will accept the payment in currency which will be distributed to our many communities: the Germans are now aiding the Jews in Israel for genocide of the Jewish people. The Germans murdered 6,000,000 Jews. The American racist has taken part in the slaughter of over 50,000,000 Black people; therefore, we feel that this is a modest demand that we make.
  4. We believe that if the White landlords will not give decent housing to our Black community, then the housing and the land should be made into cooperatives so that our community, with government aid, can build and make a decent housing for its people.
  5. We believe in an educational system that will give our people a knowledge of self. If a man does not have knowledge of himself and his position in society and the world, then he has little chance to relate to anything else.
  6. We believe that Black people should not be forced to fight in the military service to defend a racist government that does not protect us. We will not fight and kill other people of color in the world who, like Black people, are being victimized by the White racist government of America. We will protect ourselves from the force and violence of the racist police and the racist military, by whatever means necessary.
  7. We believe we can end police brutality in our Black community by organizing Black self-defense groups that are dedicated to defending our Black community from racist police oppression and brutality. The second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States gives us the right to bear arms. We therefore believe that all Black people should arm themselves for self-defense.
  8. We believe that all Black people should be released from the many jails and prisons because they have not received a fair and impartial trial.
  9. We believe that the courts should follow the United States Constitution so that Black people will receive fair trials. The 14th Amendment of the U.S Constitution gives a man a right to be tried by his peers. A peer is a persons from a similar economic, social, religious, geographical, environmental, historical, and racial background. To do this the court will be forced to select a jury from the Black community from which the Black defendant came. We have been, and are being tried by all-white juries that have no understanding of “the average reasoning man” of the Black community.
  10. When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and nature’s god entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, and that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its power in such a form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accused. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, and their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards of their future security.

In recent days, a rather scandalous matter hit the headlines dealing with the Smithsonian Museum and the National Museum of African American History and Culture shaming Whiteness. The museum has many donors including Oprah Winfrey, one of the largest donors of more than $20 million. Beyond the reverse racism of ‘whiteness’, the museum does have some access to showing the work and mission to be all positive. However, per the FBI Vault:

The Black Panther Party: Challenging Police and Promoting Social Change

The Black Panther Party (BPP) is a black extremist organization founded in Oakland, California in 1966. It advocated the use of violence and guerilla tactics to overthrow the U.S. government. In 1969, the FBI’s Charlotte Field Office opened an investigative file on the BPP to track its militant activities, income, and expenses. The files are here.

Project RoomKey for Homeless Destroying SF Hotels

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

San Francisco has undertaken a major effort to house people experiencing homelessness amid the coronavirus pandemic and has established a number of alternative housing options, including private hotels, congregate sites, trailers, and recreational vehicles. As of Thursday, the city has placed more than 700 people living on the streets in housing, and more rooms are being prepared, according to the city’s data tracker. Individuals over age 60 and with underlying health conditions are receiving priority for housing.

Project RoomKey is a program in which the Federal Emergency Management Agency will pay 75% of costs associated with housing some homeless, including people who test positive or may have been exposed to the virus, and older homeless people and those with underlying health conditions.

San Francisco hotels to become housing for homeless ...

FNC: Thousands of homeless people have been housed in several of San Francisco’s empty hotels in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus.

However, City Journal contributor Erica Sandberg told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday the policy has been an “absolute disaster”

“It’s solving exactly nothing and as a matter of fact, it’s making all the problems worse,” said Sandberg, who described the scene inside the hotels as “about as bad as you can imagine, only exponentially worse.”

SAN FRANCISCO GIVES DRUGS, ALCOHOL TO HOMELESS IN HOTELS DURING CORONAVIRUS

“You are talking drug-fueled parties, overdoses, deaths, people are being assaulted. You have sexual assaults going on, it is pandemonium,” she said. “It is extremely bad and it needs to stop.”

City officials reportedly secured close to 5,000 rooms at several city hotels that signed up to house homeless and other members of at-risk populations who need to quarantine or socially distance themselves.

In coronavirus landscape, moving homeless people into ...

Controversy ensued after a report alleged that the city was providing alcohol, marijuana, and methadone to homeless addicts residing in the hotels.

“The people who are assigned as disaster workers, these people have been librarians,” Sandberg told host Brian Kilmeade. “They are just paper pushers, administrators who are reassigned to these hotels, and what they are telling me is beyond the pale.

“They are not just horrified, they are traumatized by what they see. You have mattresses that have feces on them, blood, hospital bands on the floor. What people are seeing is so horrible that they walk out and they say, ‘I don’t want to go back in there.’”

Meanwhile, Sandberg said, city officials are “trying to put this kind of a Band-Aid on it and pretend it’s not happening.

“Oh, it’s happening,” she added, “and it’s worse than people imagine.”

Per the Governor’s website in part:

Project Roomkey will target hotels in counties with significant homeless populations that are also experiencing high concentrations of COVID-19 transmission. Local governments to date have secured 6,867 hotel and motel rooms for this purpose.

Every hotel/motel within Project Roomkey will include essential wraparound services, such as custodial, laundry, security, and support staff. The Governor also announced a partnership with Chef José Andrés’s World Central Kitchen, which will provide three meals a day to select Project Roomkey hotels through a statewide contract to support local efforts as needed.

To provide safer options during the COVID-19 pandemic, Project Roomkey isolation units serve three critical public health purposes:

  • Prioritize individuals experiencing homelessness who are asymptomatic, but are at high risk, such as people over 65 or who have certain underlying health conditions, and move them into motel or hotel units where they can more safely self-isolate.
  • Provide isolation capacity for individuals experiencing homelessness who have been exposed to COVID-19 (as documented by a state or local public health official, or medical health professional) that do not require hospitalization, but need isolation or quarantine; and
  • Provide isolation capacity for individuals experiencing homelessness who are COVID-19 positive, but who don’t need hospitalization. Without these isolation units, their only choice is to return to a congregate shelter setting or back to an encampment – both of which would lead to further spread of COVID-19.

The local governments are responsible for identifying which shelter clients or encampment residents are selected for these hotel isolation placements and transporting them to the hotels for intake.

The Governor’s ongoing efforts to deploy 1,305 trailers to local governments continue to progress. Trailers, purchased by the state and operated by the local governments, serve the same function as the hotels and complement the efforts of Project RoomKey. The state has purchase orders in place, and executes them and delivers the trailers as local governments provide deployment locations. To date, the state has purchased and deployed 584 trailers. The Governor also announced today the state will receive an additional 28 trailers through philanthropic support in partnership with Homeful, a California-based nonprofit focused on eradicating homelessness.
