Chinese Communist Party Rallies 230 Leftist Parties to Exploit CCP Virus for Political Gain

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

A billboard shows the Chinese leader Xi Jinping with the words “Thank you brother Xi,” a message paid for and by a pro-government tabloid, in Serbia on March 30, 2020. When six Chinese doctors landed in Belgrade two weeks before, Serbia’s president greeted them with elbow-bumps before laying a kiss on their regime’s flag, a gesture that sent Chinese social media aflutter. These doctors are now running the Balkan state’s COVID-19 strategy, as Serbia becomes a willing theatre for Beijing’s “mask diplomacy.” For weeks China has been showering European countries with millions of poor quality face masks, inaccurate test kits and other forms of “aid,” recasting itself as the hero in the battle against the coronavirus.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has initiated an open letter calling on its allies and vassal parties across the globe to rally around Beijing and to exploit the CCP virus crisis to advance the international socialist cause.

On April 2, the website of the International Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China published an “Open Letter calling for closer international cooperation in the fight against COVID-19.” According to a same-day report on CCP propaganda outlet Xinhua, at least 230 political parties from over 100 countries had already endorsed or re-published the letter.

While minimizing the seriousness of the virus for domestic consumption, the CCP strategy is to massively exaggerate the problem internationally. The CCP open letter calls the disease outbreak “the most urgent and serious challenge”—perhaps the CCP itself might better fit that description?

“Today, as Covid-19 is spreading rapidly across the globe, it constitutes the most urgent and serious challenge to both the health of humanity and world peace and development.

“Faced with this unprecedented situation, we, major political parties of various countries tasked with the weighty responsibility of improving people’s wellbeing, promoting national development and safeguarding world peace and stability, hereby issue our joint appeal as follows:”

The letter, openly initiated by the CCP, then calls for “coordinated policies” and “mobilization of resources and forces globally” before indulging in some shameless self-praise:

“We are aware that the virus respects no borders, and no country can respond to the challenges alone in the face of the outbreak. … Closer international cooperation, coordinated policies, concerted actions, and mobilization of resources and forces globally will enable us to defeat this virus, a common enemy to all of humanity.

“We take note of the significant progress in the fight against Covid-19 in China, … which has bought time and offered experience to the rest of the international community. We highly commend countries including China for adopting an open, transparent and responsible attitude to disclosing related information in a timely fashion, sharing experience on response and patient treatment, and in particular providing medical and other supplies to the best of their ability to other affected countries. …”

Next comes a coded message to the international communist movement—protect the CCP from international blame and retaliation, protect the CCP’s thousands of agents in Western countries from scrutiny or expulsion, and work toward increased integration with the U.N., World Health Organization, and other anti-Western international organizations:

“We stand firmly against all discriminatory comments and practices against any country, region or ethnic group, and call on governments of all countries to take proactive measures to protect the health, safety and legitimate interests of foreign nationals and students they host. …

“We are of the view that the Covid-19 outbreak has laid bare the need for all countries to further foster the global governance outlook of achieving shared growth through discussion and collaboration and to support the leading role of the United Nations and the World Health Organization in global public health governance. We call for all parties to enhance coordination and cooperation within the framework of the G20 and other international mechanisms for effective international prevention and control as we strive to build a global community with a shared future for public health.”

To date, the CCP has not published a list of the 230 signatories “from major political parties.” This could be because many of them aren’t “major” and most of them are communist.

Significant political parties are known to have signed on to the CCP letter so far include the ruling Communist Party of Cuba and the Communist Party of Nepal. The South African Communist Party, which semi-governs that country in partnership with the African National Congress, has endorsed the letter. The often-ruling and openly communist Progressive Party of the Working People of Cyprus also signed on.

Further down the socialist pecking order the Communist Party USACommunist Party of Australia, the Communist Party of Britain, and the Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist) have also lent their good names to the effort.

Less well-known parties backing the CCP initiative include the Communist Party of Bangladesh (Marxist-Leninist), Thailand’s leftist Pheu Thai Party, and the militant Rwandan Patriotic Front.

Granma, the newspaper of the Cuban Communist Party, used the CCP open letter as a vehicle for promoting socialist globalism, defending the CCP, and increasing international communist coordination:

“The text, signed by 230 political parties from over one hundred countries, recognizes that the COVID-19 has put the world in front of the most pressing and serious challenge to human health and peaceful global development. …

“Aware that the virus knows no borders, the signatories said that no country is capable of dealing with it on its own, and therefore called for the pooling of resources and forces at the global level through international cooperation, integrated policies and coordinated actions.

“They recognize nations, including China, for their open, transparent and responsible attitude in publishing epidemiological information and sharing experiences in prevention and treatment, especially for their assistance with medical supplies to affected countries. …

“The signatories also committed themselves to maintain close communication at this unique juncture, to give impetus to the battle against the epidemic, honoring their guiding political role.”

The Communist Party of Britain-affiliated newspaper “Morning Star” used the open letter as a springboard to praise the CCP and its Russian and Cuban allies—while strongly attacking the United States:

“China, Russia and Cuba have been among those countries leading the fight, sending medical teams and aid to places most affected by the pandemic. …

“But the US has been accused of acting as a ‘Wild West bully’ by blocking essential medical aid to Cuba and sending warships towards Venezuela.

“Washington has increased sanctions on Iran, preventing it from buying medical supplies on the global market, and ratcheted up an anti-China propaganda war that critics have described as a ‘smokescreen’ to deflect from US failures.”

The CCP’s harnessing of the world communist movement to take advantage of the CCP virus pandemic should not be minimized.

While most of the 230 parties are no doubt small, all will have an important influence in the more than 100 countries they represent. Some are ruling parties with all of the weight of their states behind them. Others have control over local labor union federations, women’s and youth alliances, academia and religious bodies. All are part of the largest coordinated political movement existing in the world today.

The West is already at war with the CCP and its allies. Their goal is to create social havoc, drive the economies of the West into the ground, and gut U.S. military spending. When that happens the CCP, Russia, Iran, and Cuba will run this planet.

Today, we are in a mainly informational conflict—with one side hardly fighting. If the CCP is allowed to win this stage of the war, the West will be in no position to resist whatever comes next.

…And This Woman Is an Idiot

By: Frank Salvato

COVID-19 & The Manipulated Information We’re Getting

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

“State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-OH-35) tweeted Sunday after President Trump spoke about hydroxychloroquine at his daily press briefing… ‘I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow…Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.’”

Of course, Galonski is referring to the International Criminal Court at The Hague which the United States does not recognize. We don’t recognize it for the fact that to do so would put a non-constitutional adjudicating body above our Constitution, our rule of law, and our Supreme Court. Because we don’t recognize the ICC it has no teeth, no authority…nothing.

Now, Galonski either doesn’t understand that her “referral” means diddly-squat (which makes her a blithering idiot), forgot that her “referral” means less than the New York Times at the bottom of a birdcage (which puts her in Joe Biden’s forgetfulness group), or is a political opportunist (which puts her ethics below that of shyster attorneys and CNN and MSNBC’s).

We also need to look at her motivation via her campaign contributors. We need to see if she took any checks or quid pro quo in-kind contributions from big pharma, and here’s why.

In several locations around the world – including Australia, France, and (ironically) China, Hydroxychloroquine, when combined with Zithromax and zinc, has proven incredibly effective against the COVID-19 virus, both as a treatment after infection and as a prophylactic. This would mean that any big pharma concocted, high-priced cure that would hold the treasuries of the world hostage to political extortion wouldn’t be so critical to achieving.

And let me further juxtapose Galonski’s ignorance with this. A poll of 6,227 physicians in 30 countries across three continents, conducted by the global healthcare polling company Sermo, found that they believe hydroxychloroquine to be the best treatment for COVID-19. Further, the poll found that the United States has the lowest percentage of physicians prescribing the drug, although that number is growing.

Sermo CEO, Peter Kirk is quoted as saying, “Physicians should have more of a voice in how we deal with the pandemic and be able to quickly share information with one another around the world.” He alluded to the poll results (albeit his organization’s) as a “treasure trove of global insight for policymakers.”

And let’s file this under the “blind squirrel finding a nut” column.

Bloomberg (of all places) reports that more than 99 percent of the coronavirus fatalities in Italy – one of the world’s COVID-19 hotspots – were people who suffered from previous medical conditions, i.e. they were already identified as vulnerable, sometimes three-times over.

The Istituto Superiore di Sanita, Italy’s national health authority, discovered, post mortem, that of the 132,547 COVID-19 cases only 0.2 percent of the 16,523 fatalities (as opposed to the 22,837 who have recovered completely) were free and clear of any known preexisting condition. Those who died did so from complications related to COVID-19 in concert with their pre-existing conditions. The institute categorized those conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease, among others.

Additionally, Italy has a state-run healthcare system that has established guidelines that mandate, and I quote from The Atlantic: “Those who are too old to have a high likelihood of recovery, or who have too low a number of ‘life-years’ left even if they should survive, would be left to die.” To be more succinct, Italy is not treating COVID-19 elderly patients who present with an advanced stage of coronavirus. Ain’t socialized medicine wonderful…

But I digress.

Again, I am not saying that the COVID-19 virus event we are experiencing isn’t serious. It is. What I am saying is that it is being exploited by opportunistic politicians and special interests that glean benefit through chaos and is over-hyped by the media for ideological purposes.

Given the extremes to which our society has stooped during this event (hoarders should take a good long look in the mirror to examine what kind of person they have become), wouldn’t employing the hydroxychloroquine cocktail within the non-vulnerable community be a positive step toward marginalizing this virus? Rather than investing in the panic that saw New York and Michigan’s governors reverse their “ban” on hydroxychloroquine – only to now passionately exclaim they need more access to the drug, why not remain calm, use common sense hygiene protocols in mass, employ what is now a clinically effective avenue of treatment to the non-vulnerable, and sure-footedly develop treatments and vaccines for the less resilient?

We all must stop feeding at the trough of media, political, and special interest manipulation. In our fast-paced, “gotta-have-it-now”, instant gratification world, we have to take the time to inform and educate ourselves on issues and seek out facts. Just like our addictions to cellphones and social media, we have become dependent on the information we consume via the usual suspect media outlets and a cursory look into their motives points to two things: 1) they are for-profit entities that compete using sensationalism; and 2) each of them is not without their ideological biases and agendas.

Gone are the days of journalism based on “just the facts” and “who, what, where, when, and how.” Today we have opinion-based news that preys on emotions and puts more weight into the speculative “why” of every story. True, fact-based journalism, if not dead, is in critical condition with questionable chances for recovery.

Good thing Italy isn’t in control of journalism’s destiny.

Developing a Vaccine for Media Bias

By: Cliff Kincaid

H.G. Wells’ book, War of the Worlds, shows the aliens dying at the end, after almost destroying planet earth, when germs poison them. In real life, human beings are being killed by germs in the form of the coronavirus and the major media. One poisons your body, the other poisons your mind.

“We were all praying for a miracle,” says Gene Barry in the 1953 movie version of the book, as church bells ring in the distance. The movie narrator explains, “The Martians had no resistance to the bacteria in our atmosphere to which we have long since become immune. Once they had breathed our air, germs which no longer affect us began to kill them.”

Over the course of decades, I co-authored several books with Reed Irvine, founder of Accuracy in Media, with such titles as Profiles of Deception and The News Manipulators. Media bias is like a coronavirus spreading around the world. Media are like modern germs. President Trump is our vaccine.

At one time, I thought the media would eventually correct their mistakes, in order to avoid embarrassment. Yet, they get worse, day by day, and even continue to claim that they provide “All the News That’s Fit to Print.” A newspaper with the slogan “Democracy Dies in Darkness” wants to censor President Trump’s daily press briefings.

To his credit, President Trump uses his coronavirus task force briefings not only to bring us good news about the war against the invisible enemy but to identify the enemy that is sitting right in front of him (and us) in the briefing room. He understands that the media today function as the equivalent of Tokyo Rose and Axis Sally during World War II.

In this war, Trump has tried to rally the nation to victory while praising the first line of defense, consisting of doctors, nurses, first responders, soldiers, and others. At the same time, he takes on those in the media who want to undermine the war effort. He knows their poisonous approach has disastrous consequences.

On Monday, Trump made mince-meat of various reporters who, in a series of gotcha moments, seized upon another report out of the bureaucracy about supposed problems in the medical supply chains involving coronavirus tests. It turns out, under questioning, that the reporters didn’t know the name of the bureaucrat and only reluctantly, under questioning, admitted the bureaucrat came out of the bowels of the Obama bureaucracy. These reporters don’t even read beyond the headlines.

“I wish we had a fair media in this country,” the president said. His own questioning made the reporters look foolish. He called one, Jonathan Karl of ABC, “third-rate.”

Reporters claim they are trying to assure accountability from the government. But they go into these briefings with information based on headlines and no facts. They asked about an Inspector General report written by a bureaucrat whose name they didn’t know. Jonathan Karl looked unprepared as he tried to supply basic biographical information about the bureaucrat.

Trump pressed them, in dramatic fashion, because he knows that the title “Inspector General” sounds impressive but can be a mask for politically-motivated actions.  That’s why he fired the Inspector General for the so-called intelligence community.

In this case, Trump got reinforcements, as Admiral Brett Giroir, the assistant secretary for health, responded, “I don’t know the inspector general. I don’t know that person. I’ll tell you one thing I have a problem with: If there was such a problem that she knew about or he knew about on March 23 and 24, why did I find out about the test [problem] from them on the news media at 8 o’clock this morning?”

In other words, the report was old news and released for political purposes. Even worse, the bureaucratic reluctance to share information about a potential problem may have cost lives. Instead, the information went to the news media, to serve as ammunition against Trump.

Our media, by and large, don’t want to solve anything. They could be on their death beds from the virus and still spew out poison toward the Commander-in-Chief. They work in conjunction with bureaucrats left over from the previous administration who also want to make Trump look bad. This problem is as bad as the virus itself.

As a professional media analyst, I used to spend many hours a week watching the news, in order to document their malpractice. I have finally come to realize that the procedure of media monitoring is itself hazardous to one’s health. Nothing is to be gained from watching Lester Holt, except for the feel-good story at the very end of the broadcast. I’ve noticed how the feel-good stories never involve anything the Trump Administration has done in the current crisis to save lives.

Today, I watch the White House briefings, with some lively give-and-take, and Tucker Carlson’s independently-minded Fox News program.

It is better to spend my time comparing and contrasting different sources of information, doing my own research, and then report my findings on my own website, America’s Survival, Inc.  I recommend this approach to my fellow Americans. A vaccine for media bias is free and available now. It is called critical thinking.

Will Trump Betray Us After Corona?

By: Lloyd Marcus

Some people are stunned that government using computer models to predict high coronavirus deaths has many Americans willing to gift Democrats and fake news media these leftists’ lifelong dream of ending the U.S. Constitution. Panic-stricken citizens want everyone who is non-compliant to immediate dictatorial government demands thrown into jail.

Consequently, Democrats are behaving like power-drunk pirates, raping and pillaging our God-given and constitutional freedoms. Incredibly, New York mayor de Blasio has threatened to close places of worship forever. Virginia Gov. (supreme dictator) Northam decreed that residents stay at home until June 10th, after the June 9th Republican primary.

Despite practicing CDC guidelines, a pastor was arrested for opening his church while the nearby Home Depot was packed with people. Planned Parenthood dead-baby-body-parts-chop-shops deemed essential are allowed to remain open.

Across America, thousands of inmates are being released from prison because of coronavirus. Disease infested tent city vagrants ignore corona restrictions while violators of stay-at-home orders are arrested. Democrats always handle illegal aliens, criminals, and those who are irresponsible with velvet gloves while bludgeoning law-abiding citizens with an iron fist.

Drunk with corona-power, Barrack Obama, Andrew Cuomo, and Nancy Pelosi are exploiting the virus to pressure Trump to fund a laundry list of unrelated extreme leftist pet projects.

The big question which concerns many is will our constitutional rights be restored after corona? Can the Democrat/deep state evil-genie be put back into the bottle? Will President Trump betray us by rubber-stamping the Deep States’ illegal extreme power grab as the “new normal”?

I think not. Trump is not one of them. He is one of us.

Candidate Trump was a non-ideological “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” kind of guy, expecting bipartisan support to do whatever is best for America and We the People. His agenda has not changed. President Trump will fight to restore our God-given and constitutional freedoms.

Like you, I did not enjoy hearing that America will not reopen before April 30th. However, I understand the situation. Fear is a powerful thing. Due to 24/7 apocalyptic coronavirus reporting, fake news media pretty much holds the emotions of millions of Americans in the palm of its sleazy, evil, anti-Trump hand.

Wisely, Trump is allowing another month for Americans to become fed up with house arrest, realize that computer models are not gospel and the sky is not falling. We are Americans. We overcome everything. God is with us.

Due to the extreme unprecedented situation, I am fine with the $2 trillion bailout. The American people did not irresponsibly put themselves into this predicament. We give billions to countries and people who hate our guts. Why not lend a hand to our own.

Democrats are salivating over the possibility of the bailout being the first taste of addicting Americans to the deceptive unfulfilling drug of socialism/communism. Because of who Trump is and who we are, America will not become a socialist/communist country.

Treasonous fake news media coronavirus reporting is intended to generate fear, panic, and hatred for Trump. Fake news media tried to shame “My Pillow Guy,” Mike Lindell, for expressing his faith in God during a White House briefing. A majority of Americans respect and appreciate our patriot brother Mike for his contribution to fight the virus. We are a Christian nation. God promises that no weapon formed against us shall prosper.

Folks, I do not fear coronavirus nor the loss of America as we know it.

Some will say, Lloyd, you’re an idiot for not worrying. Alcoholics Anonymous warns against imagining when something negative happens, that it will cause a chain reaction of other negative things to happen. Suddenly, that person is foolishly jumping off a bridge based solely on his imagined coming catastrophe. The Bible says worrying about something which you cannot change is unwise.

“Trust in the Lord with all thy heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path” (Proverbs 3:5-6). Please do not misunderstand me. Trusting God does not mean we should passively allow out-of-control-fear to flush our economy down the toilet. President Trump must get Americans back to work ASAP.

Meanwhile, my wife Mary and I are frequently washing our hands, using sanitizer, limiting our shopping and catching up on long-overdue projects around our house. After much research on Youtube, I painted our bedroom dark gray. It looks awesome!

Romans 8:28 promises that as Christians, God is working all things for our good. So I feel great, enjoying my lovely wife of 40 years and enjoying my creative projects.

Our hope for a greater, stronger and restored America rests in trusting God and our president.

GWB was Obsessed with Pandemic Preparations in 2005

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

The efforts of the Bush administration were intense over the ensuing three years, including exercises where cabinet officials gamed out their responses, but it was not sustained. Large swaths of the ambitious plan were either not fully realized or entirely shelved as other priorities and crises took hold.

“There was a realization that it’s no longer fantastical to raise scenarios about planes falling from the sky, or anthrax arriving in the mail,” said Tom Bossert, who worked in the Bush White House and went on to serve as a homeland security adviser in the Trump administration. “It was not a novel. It was the world we were living in.”

According to Bossert, who is now an ABC News contributor, Bush did not just insist on preparation for a pandemic. He was obsessed with it.

“He was completely taken by the reality that that was going to happen,” Bossert said. In a November 2005 speech at the National Institutes of Health, Bush laid out proposals in granular detail — describing with stunning prescience how a pandemic in the United States would unfold. Among those in the audience was Dr. Anthony Fauci, the leader of the current crisis response, who was then and still is now the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Bush told the gathered scientists that they would need to develop a vaccine in record time.

“If a pandemic strikes, our country must have a surge capacity in place that will allow us to bring a new vaccine on line quickly and manufacture enough to immunize every American against the pandemic strain,” he said.

Bush set out to spend $7 billion building out his plan. His cabinet secretaries urged their staffs to take preparations seriously. The government launched a website, www.pandemicflu.gov, that is still in use today. But as time passed, it became increasingly difficult to justify the continued funding, staffing, and attention, Bossert said.

“You need to have an annual budget commitment. You need to have institutions that can survive any one administration. And you need to have leadership experience,” Bossert said. “All three of those can be affected by our wonderful and unique form of government in which you transfer power every four years.”

***

Then in 2006, enter Senator Burr:

The Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness and Advancing Innovation Act (PAHPAI) is legislation introduced and passed by the U.S. Congress in 2019 that aims to improve the nation’s preparation and response to public health threats, including both natural threats and deliberate man-made threats.[1]

A previous bill (with a near-identical name), the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act (PAHPA), was signed into law in 2006 and reauthorized in 2013 in order to create a system that prepares for, and responds to, public health threats that could turn into emergencies.

The 2019 bill (PAHPAI) was introduced by U.S. Senators Richard Burr (R-NC), Bob Casey (D-PA), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and Patty Murray (D-WA).[1] Congress passed the bill and sent it to President Trump for his signature in June 2019. (The bill number is S. 1379).

What went on at the State level during all this time? Well, in recent years, there was an exercise called Crimson Contagion:

Crimson Contagion 2019 was/is a Functional Exercise, a national level exercise series conducted to detect gaps in mechanisms, capabilities, plans, policies, and procedures in the event of a pandemic influenza. Current strategies include the Biological Incident Annex to the Response and Recovery Federal Interagency Operational Plans (2018), Pandemic Influenza Plan (2017 Update), Pandemic Crisis Action Plan Version 2.0, and CDC’s Pandemic Influenza Appendix to the Biological Incident Annex of the CDC All-Hazard Plan (December 2017). These plans, updated over the last few years, were tested by the functional exercise with emphasis on the examination of strategic priorities set by the NSC. Specifically, examined priorities include operational coordination and communications, stabilization and restoration of critical lifelines, national security emergencies, public health emergencies, and continuity. The Crimson Contagion 2019 Functional Exercise included participation of almost 300 entities – 19 federal departments and agencies, 12 states, 15 tribal nations and pueblos, 74 local health departments and coalition regions, 87 hospitals, 40 private sector organizations, and 35 active operations centers. The scenario was a large-scale outbreak of H7N9 avian influenza, originating in China but swiftly spreading to the contiguous US with the first case detected in Chicago, Illinois. Continuous human-to-human transmission of the H7N9 virus encourages its spread across the country and, unfortunately, the stockpiles of H7N9 vaccines are not a match for the outbreak’s strain; however, those vaccines are serviceable as a priming dose. Also, the strain of virus is susceptible to Relenza and Tamiflu antiviral medications. The exercise was intended to deal with a virus outbreak that starts overseas and migrates to the US with scant allocated resources for outbreak response and management, thereby forcing the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to include other agencies in the response. To do so, the exercise began 47 days after the identification of the first US case of H7N9 in Chicago, otherwise known as STARTEX conditions. Then, the HHS declared the outbreak as a Public Health Emergency (PHE), the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a pandemic, and the President of the United States declared a National Emergency under the National Emergencies Act. As was the case in the 1918 Great Influenza, transmissibility is high and cases are severe. At STARTEX, there are 2.1 million illnesses and 100 million forecasted illnesses as well as over half a million forecasted deaths. As the pandemic progresses along the epidemiological curve, the overarching foci of the federal-level response adjusts across four phases:

  1. Operational coordination with public messaging and risk communication
  2. Situational awareness, information sharing, and reporting
  3. Financing
  4. Continuity of operations

The outcome of the Crimson Contagion is that vaccine development is the silver bullet to such an outbreak, but there are complications beyond its formulation. Namely, the minimization of outbreak impact prior to vaccine development and dispersal, strategy for efficient dissemination of the vaccine across the country, allocation of personal protective equipment (PPE), and high expense of vaccine development and PPE acquisitions. The exercise concluded that HHS requires about $10 billion in additional funding immediately following the identification of a novel strain of pandemic influenza. The low inventory levels of PPE and other countermeasures are a result of insufficient domestic manufacturing in the US and a lack of raw materials maintained within US borders. Additionally, the exercise revealed six key findings:

  1. Existing statutory authorities, policies, and funding of HHS are insufficient for a federal response to an influenza pandemic
  2. Current planning fails to outline the organizational structure of the federal government response when HHS is the designated lead agency; planning also varies across local, state, territorial, tribal, and federal entities
  3. There is a lack of clarity in operational coordination regarding the roles and responsibility of agencies as well as in the coordination of information, guidance, and actions of federal agencies, state agencies, and the health sector
  4. Situation assessment is inefficient and incomplete due to the lack of clear guidance on the information required and confusion in the distribution of recommended protocols and products
  5. The medical countermeasures supply chain and production capacity are currently insufficient to meet the needs of the country in the event of pandemic influenza
  6. There is clear dissemination of public health and responder information from the CDC, but confusion about school closures remains.

A few years ago, DHS published the National Response Framework Second Edition May 2013 and later, FEMA published a 143-page report known as the Biological Incident Annex to the Response and Recovery Federal Interagency Operational Plans Final – January 2017 as a follow up to the work that began in 2008.

Many things certainly were going on that otherwise have not received media attention and the above is by no means a full accounting. The above is only referenced for perspective and context.

So while so many are working to find a single solution to COVID-19, there is no one cure but more in the realm of hundreds or perhaps thousands. Furthermore, while so many want to place blame, that too is misguided to point to U.S. politicians and medical experts. When it comes to Dr. Fauci or Bill Gates and his Event 201, understand that every medical counter-measure to pandemics call for growing viruses in laboratories and getting patents for the work each does including pharmaceutical companies and universities. We, of course, have the bureaucracy of clinical trials and they do take lots of time to launch and process.

Slow down readers, stop with the blame games, stop with finding fault, let’s deal with the here and now to get this behind us, never to repeat. If anything, blame the Communist Party of China, begin and end there and re-examine national policy with Beijing.

Vendors Return in Wuhan as China Prepares COVID-19 ...

While Pelosi and Schiff have a new oversight commission led by Congressman Clyburn, which was in the $2T stimulus bill, so what? You say it is just another plot to go for another impeachment of President Trump? Nah… it is only the Democrats’ and media’s plot and it won’t happen. A full investigation of all things COVID-19 would hardly be completed by 2024.

Oh yeah, for those of you angry at Senator Burr for selling stock, we don’t know how many in congress did sell stock. Remember, Senator Burr authored that pandemic bill in 2006… and it was signed into law.

Senators did receive a closed-door briefing on the virus on Jan. 24, which was public knowledge. A separate briefing was held Feb. 12 by the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, which Burr is a member of. It’s unclear if he attended either session.

One must ask if the Senate Intelligence Committee received the briefing, who gave the briefing and did that same briefing happen in the House? That is always the policy. If so, how come the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, you know, Adam Schiff, never said a thing about it. Inquiring minds want to know.

Meanwhile…

Just follow hygiene rules and let’s get America into full restoration mode… FAST.

Covert Influence! Communist Party Supporters Run as Democrats in Arizona and Texas

By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times

The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is looking to increase its covert influence in the Arizona and Texas Democratic Party and state governments in the 2020 election cycle. This is part of a wider strategy playing out in several states.

Patrick Morales, a long-time Arizona Communist Party ally and vice president of the Tempe Elementary School Governing Board, is running for the Arizona House of Representatives in Legislative District 26 in a four-way Democratic primary scheduled for Aug. 4.

In Texas, Communist Party member Penny Morales Shaw is running for the Texas House of Representatives in District 148. Shaw is on the ballot in the Democratic primary runoff on July 14, 2020.

Both are running as Democrats. If successful both candidates will add to the already significant communist infiltration in their respective state Democratic parties.

The CPUSA has been supporting Morales and Shaw for some time.

CPUSA Political Action Committee chair Joelle Fishman mentioned the pair by name in a report to a CPUSA National Committee meeting on Nov. 17, 2018:

“Our concept of the revolutionary process and building broad unity against the right and for people’s needs is more relevant than ever, as is the importance of a larger Communist Party. …

“In Texas we had five candidates in the primaries who got a quarter million votes for US Senate and plans to run again. In the general election Penny Morales Shaw ran for county commissioner in a Republican area and got 45% of the vote in a great campaign with union support.

“In Arizona, in addition to races at every level, in Tempe Patrick Morales came in first for re-election to the School Board.”

Arizona

Morales, a small business owner, has been involved with the CPUSA and the Democratic Party for several years. He has served as Arizona Democratic Party regional field director, Maricopa County Young Democrats vice president, as an Arizona Bernie Sanders for President activist, and now serves as co-chair of the Arizona Democratic Party’s Progressive Caucus. He has also been active in the Arizona Students’ Association’s executive board and in leadership positions with Progressive Democrats of America—which is essentially a front for the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

The Communist Party has been active in Tucson and Phoenix for decades. Originally it infiltrated the mining industry; then in more recent times it focused on protecting illegal immigration. The Arizona communists helped elect Tucson-based Congressmen Raul Grijalva in 2002 and Phoenix area Congressman Ed Pastor in 1991.

When Pastor retired in 2012, the communists helped elect his successor and long-time CPUSA supporter Kyrsten Sinema. They also backed Sinema’s successful U.S. Senate run in 2018. After a deeply radical past, Sen. Sinema now portrays herself as a moderate Democrat and serves on the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

In 2012, Morales worked on Sinema’s successful congressional campaign. He seems to be on close terms with Sinema, who he has dubbed “our fearless leader.” So far Sen. Sinema has not endorsed Morales’s state representative race, but she did endorse successful 2019 Tucson mayoral candidate Regina Romero, who has also enjoyed close ties to the Communist Party.

Texas

In the Houston area, the local Communist Party claims more than 250 members and is very active in traditional activist politics and electoral work through the Democratic Party. The Houston Communist Party is also deeply intertwined with the DSA.

In 2018, Houston Communist Party member and DSA comrade Ali Khorasani ran unsuccessfully for Congress in Texas’s 2nd District on the Democratic ticket. Houston Communist Party chairman Bernard Sampson is also a DSA comrade and a Democratic Party precinct chair.

Penny Morales Shaw is an attorney, business administrator, and former congressional legislative advocate.

She has been endorsed in her current race by a whole slew of prominent Houston Democrats, including former Congressman Gene Green, State Rep. Ron Reynolds, State Rep. Ana Hernandez, State Rep. Armando Walle, Harris District Clerk Marilyn Burgess, and Harris County Treasurer Dylan Osborne.

Morales Shaw is also backed by the Tejano Democrats, Harris County Young Democrats, Asian American Democrats, the local branch of Our Revolution, and the Texas Organizing Project (TOP)—formerly known as Texas ACORN.

Another notable endorsement came from sitting Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia from the 29th District. Garcia was formerly a state representative.

According to a 2014 CPUSA convention report by Bernard Sampson:

“Comrades, I’d like to talk about the growth of the Houston club in the last year and a half. … Next the political struggle here in Houston. We worked in the Sylvia Garcia campaign for state rep in which she won.”

Garcia has also worked closely with TOP for years. Prominent TOP leaders included Bernard Sampson and Reverend James Caldwell, another Houston Communist Party comrade. Rev. Caldwell also has ties to Houston Congressman Al Green—one of the very earliest voices calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Garcia is one of several Marxist-linked congress members now serving on the powerful House Judiciary Committee. She was also one of seven House Democrats to serve as impeachment managers, essentially acting as prosecutors during President Trump’s recent Senate trial.

Sinema and Garcia both started out as state-level politicians before rising to key congressional positions—both with ongoing Communist Party help.

Are Patrick Morales and Penny Shaw Morales being groomed to follow the same path?

The CPUSA has infiltrated the Democratic Party at every level in key states across the nation. Numerous articles have been written exposing this serious penetration. The Democrats cannot plead ignorance.

Why has the Democratic Party so far done nothing to address this problem?

Trevor Loudon is an author, filmmaker, and public speaker from New Zealand. For more than 30 years, he has researched radical left, Marxist, and terrorist movements and their covert influence on mainstream politics. He is best known for his book “Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress” and his similarly-themed documentary film “Enemies Within.” His soon-to-be-published book is “White House Reds: Communists, Socialists & Security Risks Running for U.S. President, 2020.”

The Red Chinese Lied, Americans Died, and Americans Prayed

By: Cliff Kincaid

When FDR waged World War II, he could mobilize the entire country. President Trump faces an assortment of enemies, here and abroad. These include China, source of the virus; Russia, which is driving American oil producers out of business through overproduction of cheap oil; a toxic anti-American media culture; and a Democratic Party that wants to undermine Trump through investigations and make him (and the country) fail.

Another factor is that FDR could mobilize American industrial power. We are now learning that much of that power was outsourced to China. It is sad and tragic that the once-great United States made decisions over the course of the last 40 years that facilitated the build-up of China into an industrial and economic superpower. Henry Kissinger began the policy of appeasing China and it was implemented through its ascension to the World Trade Organization. China became a Frankenstein monster devouring the world.

Coming into office, Trump recognized this problem and sought through various policies to rectify the situation. As I see it, the China virus was revenge for Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods. Otherwise, China and its handmaidens in the World Health Organization would have quickly alerted the world to the nature of this beast. They lied and Americans died.

Although opinions differ, the consensus of the various medical experts is that this is a highly contagious disease, with symptoms in severe cases much worse than the flu, lung damage worse than the flu, and a death rate overall that may be much worse than seasonal flu.

President Trump had no alternative but to defer to these authorities. But he has to suspect, based on its contagious and deadly nature, that the virus may have been engineered. China has a bioweapons program that has been documented by such authorities as former Soviet scientist Ken Alibek and analyst Eric Croddy. Nobody with a serious mind assumes it was just a coincidence that the virus came out of a region with a Chinese lab conducting secret research.

Our enemies seem to have us where they want us – our people are dying and the economy is collapsing. China is betting that it will come out on top of the world. Then, the old Sino/Soviet split will be exposed as another great deception. Russia will dominate the oil markets and have Europe under its control.

In the middle of all of this, President Trump is attempting to rally the nation. He is stuck with a medical bureaucracy that relied on China for misinformation about the virus and a media that plays gotcha at daily press briefings. He understands the gravity of the situation but is obviously limited by what he can say publicly about the threat. As I argued in a recent column, the invisible enemy has a name.

To his credit, Trump has broken with the “experts” to facilitate public access to various alternative drugs and treatments. This could be the development that helps America turn the corner in the weeks ahead.

While FDR could rally the nation into war production for the United States military, which was deployed abroad, today’s threat is so great that the military is being diverted into domestic uses and purposes. America’s military and National Guard are building hospitals and taking care of patients. Meanwhile, Navy ships are being infected with the virus and the Pentagon is warning that the spread of the virus could affect U.S. military readiness and our ability to deter our enemies from further strikes.

This is yet another problem that Trump has to take into account as he navigates the difficult path of safeguarding America’s survival.

At the same time, the globalists opposed to his election and candidacy are continuing the drumbeat of opposing the only way — through America-first policies – that we have of escaping the morass we found ourselves in.

Consider that the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) journal Foreign Affairs has published another anti-Trump article, “’“America First’ Is a Dangerous Fantasy in a Pandemic: Foreign Aid and Global Leadership Will Be Integral to Any Solution,” which endorses the same mistakes that got us into this mess in the first place. The article is by former Obama official Philip H. Gordon.

The use of a CFR publication to attack Trump is not unexpected. This is the organization that boasted Soviet spy Alger Hiss, a founder of the United Nations, as a prominent member.

This article ignores China’s lies, as well as the fact that the World Health Organization told the world on January 14 that the virus could not be transmitted between people. On January 21, relying on Chinese and WHO’s data, Dr. Anthony Fauci told TV host Greg Kelly that “this is not a major threat for the people of the United States. And this is not something that the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.” Dr. Deborah Birx admits China gave the U.S. “incomplete data” about the virus. That’s a polite way of saying the Red Chinese lied so Americans died.

In the face of this mass murder, socialist U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres demands a “global ceasefire,” adding, “The virus does not care about nationality or ethnicity, faction or faith. It attacks all, relentlessly.” But China is directly implicated in the genocide.

Former Obama officials are ignoring the role of China in this worldwide meltdown for an obvious reason: Barack Hussein Obama was an acolyte of global Marxism and actually met with Chinese dictator Xi in November 2017 during a meeting described by the British Guardian as a chat between two “veteran cadres.” They were “all smiles.”

A Russian media organ took note as well, saying the term “veteran cadres” is “generally used to refer to retired Chinese Communist Party officials.” It was a tip-off that Obama was serving the communist cause all the time he was serving as president of the United States.

It’s the case we were making in our three books on Obama, including Red Star Rising: The Making of Barack Hussein Obama and the Transformation of America.

Trump is facing a difficult fight that is made worse by the actions of publicity-seeking governors who complain about the delivery of supplies while closing churches and keeping abortion clinics, liquor stores, and pot shops open.

The only thing worse is the conduct of certain reporters at the daily press briefings, as they attempt to bring down a president trying hard to save lives.

Whatever executive orders may remain in place, the people of the various states are not going to wait long to return in numbers to the closed churches, even risking their lives in a desperate attempt to appeal to God to save their nation. Many Americans are praying now more than ever. They are praying for their president.

Humiliation, A Pretext For Murder

By: Tabitha Korol

I discovered a paper by the accomplished social scientist, Dr. Evelin Lindner, regarding her theory that the humiliation of a people may cause them to react in anger.  The summary by Brett Reeder, Conflict Research Consortium, of “Making Enemies: Humiliation and International Conflict,” confirmed that this was, indeed, her intent.  However, a violent reaction is by no means inevitable, but a matter of choice, and by broadcasting her assumption, she has merely provided another excuse for claiming victimhood.

By the third paragraph, it had become apparent that there would be the accusations I’d come to expect.  With a deft twist, the authoress had crafted two unproven theories as facts in order to support her beliefs. Her first statement, not in quotes by Reeder, was:              

The Versailles Treaty’s treatment of Germany after World War I is widely believed to have been a major impetus for the rise of Hitler and World War II.

Widely believed may be credible, but not factual.  Can anyone seriously posit that, had the Treaty been more reasonable, Hitler would not have risen to power?  His belief in the innate superiority of the Aryan race and its destiny to rule the world would have supplied sufficient impetus for such an amoral megalomaniac.  Guided by his personality, Hitler made a choice.

One error invariably unleashes another, and Lindner applies her humiliation-causes-anger theory to the Arab-Israeli situation:

The treatment of Jews in the Holocaust certainly contributed to Israelis’ feelings of victimhood, which is manifested, in part, by their humiliating treatment of Palestinians.

It is offensive to suggest that humiliated Holocaust survivors vented their anger on the Palestinians, but more notable is that she portrayed the first two groups, Nazis and Jews, as humiliated-turned-aggressor, but Palestinians as humiliated-remaining-passive.   A theory cannot be credible if it lacks consistency.  The good doctor displays her bias in favor of the Palestinians and against the Jews.

History has shown the Palestinians to be violent, not passive, and the question is whether their violence can be traced to alleged humiliation by the Israelis.  To do so, she had to overlook Islam’s entire 1400-year history of expansionism, atrocities, enslavement, rape, and bloodshed in every nation they invaded, killing more than  669 million people.  The Palestinian heritage is Islam, and the writer ignored the innumerable pogroms against the Jews, the Armenians, and others before Israel’s sovereignty in 1948.  The Muslim attackers were neither humiliated by Israel nor passive.

Oddly, Lindner said, “humiliation destroys everything in its path,” and it “brings about depression and victimhood.”  However, despite the trials of centuries and the harsh rules under which Jews have been forced to live, they did not succumb to humiliation with anger and war but spent their lives improving their lot.  They held fast to their identity, faith, morality, and God’s promise of returning to Zion. They comforted each other through the Inquisition, ghetto confinement, pogroms, and concentration camps; and once liberated, rebuilt their vibrant country out of the desert and malarial swamp.  The small country’s exceptional success reflects their confidence and innovation, energy and industry, not victimhood and humiliation. Life is a gift to be treasured, not squandered.  Given the choices of sanity and madness, the Jews chose the former.  Further, their countless offers of peace to the Palestinians indicate magnanimity, not the bitterness of past humiliation.

Victimhood is a choice that the Palestinians continue to make because it garners cash and sympathy from the world.  Israel recently delivered hundreds of coronavirus-detection kits to Gaza, but Palestinian leaders chose to foster their victimhood by concealing that help from their own and the international community and to condemn Israel for their heightened death toll.

The Palestinians elected not to build their own country concurrently when the Jews were rebuilding theirs, during the same time and climatic conditions – although the Arabs had the oil money and funds from Europe, America, Israel, and UNWRA.  They chose the victim personae.

To verify Lindner’s views that Palestinian violence is caused by the Jews’ mistreatment of them, we must examine the cherished, savored victimhood of the Palestinians and recognize that, as with a painting’s canvas, the personality must also be primed.

Islam is the basis of the blame/shame culture in which Muslims, and Palestinians specifically, are raised.  The social and psychological phenomenon of humiliation is one in which the fault in a crime is attributed entirely to the victim.  This is a coping mechanism of transference, of rationalization, characteristic of borderline personality disorder.  It is found in cultures that produce jihadis, in the children’s early nonverbal communication, their psychotic attachment to their mother, play activities that reveal their traumatic early-life experiences, and their body language that communicates emotional instability, the sadism from their earliest terrors.

The jihadi (or female jihada) has often been described as having masochistic personality disorder, obtaining gratification from the persistent degradation by humiliation, self-sacrifice, and indulgent misery, thus creating the victimization.  Described as an unconscious self-punishment that results from the damaged bond with the devalued, hated mother, the jihadi is capable of committing crimes against humanity.  In mass masochism, the jihadis fuse in a non-thinking, regressed group to commit crimes and sacrifice that the population celebrates, a form of mass hysteria. The Islamic antisemitism and terrorism are stabilized in the inherently fragile, violent jihadi personality.

These traits are clearly found among Gaza’s Palestinians.  The boy’s experiences are harsh. In the family of as many as four wives and multiple children to one husband, the sons are ignored by the father and raised among the women for his first seven years, when he terror-bonds with his mother and accepts her worthlessness. It is an atmosphere of envy and rivalry among the wives as well as the children.  When the father does take control of his education, his mother has already exposed him to a painful betrayal, where he is raped and humiliated into submission by other men.  Despite the veneer of Islamic disgust about homosexuality, Arab poetry is replete with the joys of sodomy.

A boy’s friendships and education are strictly limited but they may come together as a group, faces covered, humiliation hidden, to take out their aggression on Mohammed’s sworn enemies, the Jews.  They work in unison when throwing rocks or incendiary missiles across Israel’s border.  Our social scientist, Lindner, appears oblivious of the ruinous upbringing experienced by the future jihadis, their eagerness for death and martyrdom, instead she attributes their violence to imagined humiliation by the Jews.

Neither is the daughter spared her own childhood nightmare.  In such a family unit, she experiences her own terror and distrust of her family when she undergoes Female Genital Mutilation.  The indignation of being restrained on a table while a stranger imposes on her privacy to inflict severe pain that negates her femaleness also brings her humiliation.  Raised in this household, forced into a loveless marriage to an older man and raped at will, the daughter, still in need of motherly nurturing, must be the mother to the numerous children.  Covered from head to toe, unseen by the world, restricted in her every move, can this be anything but humiliation?  From one generation to the next, the child terror-bonds with her mother, has no outlet for calm and affection, no education save memorization of the Koran, no expressions of art and music, no friends or courtships – and no credibility in a court of law if she seeks a way out.

The daughter has a role to play in the Islamic war against humanity.  She is responsible for creating more children for Allah’s army and martyrdom or to emulate the jihadi’s function.  The jihada is exemplified by Linda Sarsour, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, as well as by the exploits of female terrorists.  Yet we are to believe the Palestinian violence is caused by an outside source of humiliation. 

Ironically, Lindner inadvertently suggests that the Jews played no part in Palestinian humiliation, clarifying that humiliation is a hierarchal, ranking scale to maintaining social cohesion.  Israelis lives are filled with study and time spent in service to the country, and Israeli Arabs have the same opportunities.  They are encouraged to have a career, to marry and raise a family – the very activities not available to the Arab children of Gaza.  A successful neighbor can either inspire emulation or humiliation, the choice is given.

The Palestinians have been primed – humiliated by their culture and dishonest circumstances. The invading Arab nations were bent on Israel’s destruction and encouraged and caused the bulk of the Arabs to flee Israel, telling them they would return victorious.  Now, after all they endured by their people, from their people, and for their people, the piece de resistance, the final slap-in-the-face, the grand humiliation occurred when their armies lost and these individuals were abandoned, discarded and forbidden from ever returning to their lands of origin – Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Jordan.  While they saw that the Jews who fled mistreatment from Arab countries were welcomed by their Israeli brethren, how demeaning to be told that they were not wanted, must never more identify with their history, their heritage, and other family members.  They were going to be used once again, as pawns.  With no distinguishing language, religion, or culture, and no lineage to this land back more than four generations, they had to create an identity out of whole cloth. This was indeed the ultimate cause for humiliation, and it was their own kith and kin who did the humiliating.
