Importing Middle East Terrorism

By: Cliff Kincaid

Obama bureaucrats in the CIA are still stinging over President Trump’s dramatic decision to both withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria and take down the leader of ISIS. The decision was a win-win, as the communist terrorist PKK/YPG Kurds in northern Syria were dealt a military defeat by Turkey, and the ISIS terrorist leader was sent to hell, as a result of U.S. military might and canine expertise.

But now, American and other ‘volunteers” who went to the Middle East to fight for a Kurdish utopia known as Rojava are coming back to America to continue their revolutionary struggle here.

It never made sense for the U.S. to back one set of terrorists, the PKK/YPG, against another, ISIS. But that was Obama’s conscious and deliberate policy. Trump decided he would pursue a pro-American foreign policy that respected our ally Turkey and would leave both terrorist groups in ashes. In another masterstroke, Trump wisely decided to withhold details of the anti-terrorist operation from the leakers and liars on Capitol Hill.

Now, the Kurds are whining to their Obama handlers, many still in the national security bureaucracy. Hence, the same CIA bureaucrats who engineered Obama’s no-win policy are now retaliating with smears of Trump in the fake news media. They placed an anti-Trump article in the Tuesday New York Times, under the long title, “As Kurds Tracked ISIS Leader, U.S. Withdrawal Threw Raid Into Turmoil.” The theme was that Trump betrayed the Kurdish “allies” who had helped locate the ISIS leader by stealing his underwear.

Here’s how the Times put it: “…even as the Syrian Kurdish fighters were risking their lives in the hunt that led to Mr. al-Baghdadi’s death this weekend, Mr. Trump abruptly shattered America’s five-year partnership with them.”

That “partnership” was initiated by the previous Obama Administration, which has blood on its hands for funding various terror groups in an effort to initiate “regime change” in Syria and Libya.  Let’s remember that Obama’s legacy was up to 500,000 dead in Syria, Libya became a disaster as well, and Germany welcomed a Muslim invasion of Europe.

The PBS Newshour ran an interview with Obama’s CIA Director, John Brennan, in which he called the outcome “regrettable.”

How does Obama’s CIA director get away with simply saying that the human misery and suffering in Syria spilling over into Europe are “regrettable?” Where is the accountability for this debacle? And on what legal and constitutional basis did Obama take America to war in Syria anyway?

Perhaps this is why Brennan and his comrades conceived Russia-gate. It was a largely successful effort to divert public attention from the bloody policies they pursued in the Middle East.

It’s not as if the media didn’t understand what Obama’s CIA was doing. The Washington Post and the New York Times both reported that a secret CIA operation to train and arm “rebels” in Syria had cost $1 billion by the middle of 2015. The Post said the CIA program set up in 2013 was “to bolster moderate forces.” But according to Brennan on PBS, more radical groups joined the fight, leading to a “regrettable” situation.

Those groups joining the fight included the Kurdish PKK/YPG. But they were supported overtly by the Obama Administration, using the CIA and the Pentagon to create a new nation-state of Rojava in northern Syria. Members of Antifa, anarchist, and communist groups in the U.S. went there to fight for this new socialist paradise. They formed an “International Freedom Battalion,” a “socialist fighting group of foreign volunteers fighting ISIS and Turkey in Syria.”

Like the CIA and Pentagon war in Syria, Obama’s intervention in Libya was also illegal and unconstitutional. But the media failed to acknowledge the facts. Under the War Powers Act, a president can go to war on his own only if there is an imminent threat to the U.S., and there is a 60-day deadline for the withdrawal of forces. Obama violated both provisions of the law. There was no direct or immediate threat to the U.S. from Libya or Syria, and Obama ignored the 60-day deadline for approval from Congress.

Back in 2007, then-Senator Obama had loudly declared that: “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

One result of Obama’s Libya intervention was the Benghazi massacre of four Americans.

Obama’s intervention in Syria could result in “blowback” on American soil.

Consider the fact that Americans and others fighting for the PKK in Syria produced a film, “We Need to Take Guns,” about their effort. A masked fighter in the film says “this is how internationalism works,” and that those who came to the region would take their experiences “back home.”

Earlier this year, the Times had actually featured an article about some of the “American volunteers.” These were among the “hundreds of civilians from Western nations” fighting for the new Marxist state of Rojava in the PKK/YPG military units. “I’ve always hated capitalism and materialism,” said one American from Texas. “What the Kurds are doing fits with what I believe.”

In fact, in the wake of the PKK/YPG defeat against the Turks, many of these fighters may be returning to the U.S. as hardened communists with military skills, including bomb-making.  A “Solidarity With Rojava” organization in the U.S. claims affiliates in several American cities and has announced a “World Resistance Day” against the U.S. and Turkey.

The theme of Trump “betraying” the PKK/YPG terrorists serves to further radicalize left-wingers in love with the mythical state of Rojava. There was never an “alliance” with the Kurds, as the paper claimed. Obama used them against ISIS, based on their expectation they would eventually get their own state in northern Syria. It was a fiction that Obama’s CIA dangled in front of them. But Trump was having none of it.

Whatever the Kurds did, they did on their own behalf. But Trump was under no obligation to them. Instead, he had a commitment through NATO to NATO member Turkey, which has been attacked by the PKK/YPG for decades, losing thousands of their citizens to terrorism. In Syria, these units called themselves the Syrian Democratic Forces. Their presence on Turkey’s border was a clear and present danger.

Instead of sticking by the Kurdish Marxists, who always had their own terrorist agenda, the United States had and has an obligation to NATO member Turkey to turn over alleged YPG/PKK terrorist leader Ferhat Abdi Sahin, codenamed Mazloum Kobani. The Turkish Embassy says he has killed 41 Turkish civilians and wounded more than 400 in his 28 years in the PKK terrorist organization.

Indeed, Turkey has requested the extradition of Mazloum Kobani under the Treaty on Extradition and Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters between the US and Turkey.

But several U.S. senators are moving in the opposite direction, asking the Trump Administration to expedite a visa for Kobani to enter the U.S. They are Senators Chris Van Hollen (D-Maryland), Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee), Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire), and Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut)

This is a dangerous time and we can expect more of the same “betrayal of the Kurds by Trump” stories since they conveniently divert attention from Obama’s illegal and immoral policy of arming them in the first place without Congressional approval. Many Obama bureaucrats in the intelligence community and the Pentagon are implicated in this bloody and disastrous policy. They hate Trump for putting a stop to the endless war.

But now, the carnage could come to America.

The February Times article noted that some of the PKK/YPG volunteers “have returned to the United States, where they are often detained on arrival for questioning about their activities,” but that none so far have been prosecuted. However, “…that could change if Turkey — a NATO ally — goes to war with the Kurdish forces in Syria,” the paper said.

As a result, the communist and anarchist hotheads may now be returning to the United States, to take up arms against Trump, who engineered the perceived “betrayal” of their comrades.

America’s new Civil War could be taking an ominous turn.

The Deep State Wants Trump Impeached Over Syria

By: Cliff Kincaid

The foreign policy elites from both major political parties reacted with outrage to President Trump’s withdrawal of U.S. forces from the illegal and undeclared war in northern Syria. This was an indication that the interests of the Deep State, especially the CIA, were at stake. What we have discovered is that this area, known to our “allies” the Kurds as Rojava, was being developed as a revolutionary nation-state dedicated to “killing the dominant male,” in the words of  Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) founder and cult leader Abdullah Ocalan.

Keep in mind that Ocalan is the communist leader of the Kurds in the PKK and YPG that President Trump is accused of betraying. The real question is how the U.S. was manipulated — and by whom — into arming and supporting these Marxists.

“Man is a system,” declared Ocalan, the convicted terrorist leader and lunatic leftist imprisoned by Turkey. “The male has become a state and turned this into dominant culture…When man is analyzed in this context, it is clear that masculinity must be killed.” In his feminist manifesto, Liberating Life: Woman’s Revolution, he added, “Indeed, to kill the dominant man is the fundamental principle of socialism. This is what killing power means: to kill the one-sided domination, the inequality and intolerance.”

This may help explain who so many Kurdish fighters featured in the western media are depicted as ruthless female killers, with some even posing with their weapons for a photoshoot in the Marie Claire fashion magazine.

Some Christian fighters who wanted to fight ISIS discovered the truth on the field of battle. One seven-year U.S. Army veteran was going to join a Kurdish YPG unit until he found out they were “a bunch of damn Reds.” These “damn Reds” were being armed and trained by Obama’s CIA and Pentagon.

Nevertheless, Christian televangelist Pat Robertson actually compared Trump’s withdrawal from Syria to Neville Chamberlain’s appeasement of Adolf Hitler. And Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who plays a Trump supporter on television, said that Trump was making the “biggest blunder of his presidency” by pulling American troops back from the conflict.

What’s more, so-called “conservative” groups and entities such as the American Enterprise Institute and Foundation for Defense of Democracies savagely attacked President Trump for fulfilling his campaign promise to get out of these endless wars.

Male-Powered Radical Feminism

If you recognize Ocalan’s Marxist mumbo-jumbo as rhetoric justifying extreme forms of “women’s liberation” and even transgenderism, you’re beginning to understand the sheer insanity of the so-called “Kurdish Project” established by the Marxist revolutionaries who ran Obama’s foreign policy. This is a scandal that dwarfs anything Trump is accused of doing or saying.

The evidence, never publicized by the fake news media, shows that, under Obama, a governmental structure had been set up in northern Syria, titled the “Self-Administration of North and East Syria,” supported by the global left and obviously orchestrated by John Brennan’s CIA. Those in charge had developed a “social contract” or constitution for this region, to be guided by adherence to various United Nations documents. In effect, it was a nation-building scheme, a building block of a New World Order in the Middle East.

One of the best insights into what was happening came in a research paper, “Re-enchantment of the Political: Abdullah Ocalan, Democratic Confederalism and the Politics of Reasonableness,” from a 2018 conference funded in part by the Open Society Foundations of George Soros. Whenever Soros money is at work, you know that something sinister is most likely involved.

“Democratic Confederalism stands as a highly salient emancipatory alternative to authoritarian theocracy, statist nationalism, and neoliberal capitalism,” said the research paper. The author, an academic lecturer, proudly reported that women’s liberation and radical feminism, as well as an “ecologically sound society,” were the pillars of this new emerging Marxist state. Much of what was planned sounds like the political agenda of the four Democratic Congresswomen known as the “Squad.”

History shows that Abdullah Ocalan founded the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in order to create “Kurdistan.” It was conceived as another Soviet-sponsored “liberation movement.” Indeed, Ocalan was named as a KGB-trained agent by dissident KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko, and The Wall Street Journal just recently quoted one expert as saying that the PKK “remains a lever for Russian policy against Turkey given four-decade-old ties between the Russian security elites and the PKK.” Knowing this, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has to understand that his relationship with Russian President Putin is one of mutual suspicion. He was forced to deal with Putin because of the residual effects of Obama’s pro-terrorist policy in the region.

Extreme Makeover

In order to make this movement more palatable to a Western audience, Ocalan’s philosophy was said to have undergone a radical transformation from old-fashioned Marxism-Leninism to this so-called “democratic confederalism.” Ocalan explains in a book by that name that he now favors the creation of a new society dedicated to ecology and feminism.

What also happened over the last several years was that Ocalan’s Marxist followers took advantage of the chaos in the region in order to posture as “allies” of the Americans against the Islamic State, or ISIS. In the process, they established several camps along the Turkish border that they tried to make into a nation-state. Not surprisingly, Turkey took exception to this, eventually announcing the recent border security operation to clean out these camps of Marxist terrorists. Wisely, President Trump decided to get U.S. troops out of the way. He did not want American blood to be spilled in a confrontation between the PKK and the Turkish Armed Forces.

Many conservatives accepted the lie that the Marxist Kurds were our allies. The left knows better. Supporters of Ocalan in the United States, including such leftist luminaries as Angela Davis, the former top Communist Party official and California college professor, and Marxist academic Noam Chomsky, have been demanding his release from prison. These leftists have compared Ocalan to Nelson Mandela of South Africa, who, after his death, was revealed to have been a communist all along.

Ocalan is also being viewed by the global left as some kind of Antonio Gramsci figure, a reference to the Italian communist who promoted a strategy of subverting Christian values and Western institutions. In the previously cited paper from the Soros-funded conference, we are told, “The influence of Democratic Confederalism has also increased in North America and Europe with the spread of radical left solidarity groups.”

This is a typical international communist “solidarity” operation, the kind the Kremlin used to sponsor regarding countries like Nicaragua, El Salvador, Venezuela, and even the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico.

Interestingly, the so-called anti-war left came out in support of keeping the U.S. military in northern Syria to protect the region called Rojava, with Chomsky saying the Kurds have “succeeded in sustaining a functioning society with many decent elements” in Syria’s north.

The new left-wing state called Kurdistan was on its way to being created until Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan decided he could no longer tolerate terrorist enclaves on his border. Whatever you may think of Erdogan and his involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood, his country has historically been anti-Soviet and anti-communist. He could play the same role today with a friendly American president like Trump in office. But threats against Turkey from the likes of Senator Lindsey Graham make that difficult.

Antifa in Syria

The Kurdish Project has been a magnet for American left-wingers. In fact, members of Antifa from the United States had been heading to northern Syria to fight. A writer for the socialist magazine Mother Jones visited Kurdish fighters and found an American named “Barry” wearing a black and red anarcho-syndicalist patch on the arm of his uniform. The writer, Shane Bauer, said, “Back in the United States, Barry was part of the Antifa movement. He would brawl with fascists, sometimes carrying a concealed gun to protests ‘just in case.’ It was in these circles that Barry first heard about Rojava, the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in northeast Syria that has become a cause célèbre in anarchist circles.”

After acknowledging that Ocalan is the “ideological inspiration for the Rojava project,” Bauer went on to say:

“Today, it is nearly impossible to drive down a street in the Kurdish parts of Syria without seeing Ocalan’s face smiling through a bushy mustache. He is stenciled on walls, plastered on billboards, and stuck on cellphone cases. The United States considers his group a terrorist organization, but his image is often patched on the uniforms of the militiamen who guard coalition bases and carry weapons provided by the Americans.”

As part of this effort, the so-called “libertarian socialist caucus” of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) had issued a statement of solidarity with the “Rojava Revolution.” Another DSA chapter declared Rojava a “revolutionary homeland under the principles of Democratic Confederalism.”

Illegal American support for the PKK was somewhat disguised by Obama’s Pentagon and CIA routing the weapons through the PKK affiliate known as the YPG. Trump came to realize that the policy he inherited from Obama was getting the U.S. further embroiled in a war that could quickly involve NATO member Turkey. He had his then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo kill the $1 billion program of arming terrorist groups in Syria, to be followed by the American military withdrawal we have just witnessed.

Now, with sanctions against NATO member Turkey having been lifted, Trump has the opportunity to patch up relations with Turkey that Obama had done so much to disrupt and destroy.  Obama was doing what the Soviets/Russians always wanted to do – divide and destroy NATO. The resolution of this crisis is a great victory for Trump.

The CIA Destabilizes Turkey

On cue, the Deep State’s house journal, Foreign Affairs, a publication of the Council on Foreign Relations, has published an article attacking Turkish President Erdogan. The author, a college professor who serves as an Adjunct Senior Fellow for Middle East Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, denies the charge of participating in a CIA plot to overthrow Erdogan. He claimed the coup attempt which took place during the Obama Administration appeared to be linked to Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish Islamic cleric who runs a facility called the Golden Generation Retreat and Worship Center in Pennsylvania, the Alliance for Shared Values, and a network of charter schools.

Interestingly, Gulen came to the U.S. for medical treatment and has been here since 1999. He was reportedly given an immigration green card to stay in the U.S. at the request of individuals associated with the U.S. intelligence community.

In order to adjudicate these matters in a court of law and determine whether the CIA was involved in a coup, Turkey has asked that Gulen be extradited to stand trial on sedition charges. For his part, Gulen denies being part of any plot against Turkey.

The pressure is building on Trump to deal with the Gulen presence on American soil. It’s safe to say that, until he gets to the bottom of the Deep State’s operations in Syria and against Turkey, Trump will not fully understand the nature of the threat to his presidency.

Impeachment Now Possible

What is also clear is that the withdrawal of American troops from Syria has become the tipping point, the real reason, for Trump’s impeachment.

An honest left-wing writer by the name of Jim Kavanagh notes that allegations involving Ukraine and Russia, and all the rest of the accusations against Trump, amount to nothing politically significant. He says, “Stipulate the worst: Trump tried to wheedle some personal political benefit from a foreign leader. Shocked! Shocked! Are we?” Instead, he says, the real issue is Trump’s “unreliability as a trigger-puller, his aversion to ordering big military attacks” that makes him vulnerable. He explains, “In the last few months, Trump has made decisions either to reduce US military presence or explicitly not to take military action that was expected and planned.”

In this context, a withdrawal of U.S. troops from northeast Syria was seen by the Deep State, as the New York Times put it, as the decision which “touched off a broad rebuke by Republicans, including some of his staunchest allies.”

Trump has been firm, and his supporters in the American heartland have strongly applauded his stance. “I campaigned on the fact that I was going to bring our soldiers home and bring them home as quickly as possible,” Trump said. “I held off this fight for almost 3 years, but it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous endless wars.”

One important question Trump has to answer is why the CIA, whose “whistleblowers” are leading the charge for impeachment, would be supporting Marxists in the Middle East once sponsored by Moscow.

Other questions: Whose side are they on? Why do they want endless wars? And what gives them so much power over Senators Lindsey Graham, Mitt Romney, and Mitch McConnell?

Deep State Hate For Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

By: Cliff Kincaid

Trying to fulfill his campaign promise of getting American soldiers out of illegal and undeclared wars, President Trump encounters opposition from Democrats and Republicans in Congress. This is a body that passed the NATO Support Act (H.R. 676) by a vote of 357 to 22 in January but has now condemned President Trump for standing by NATO member Turkey.

If Congress had done its job during the Obama Administration, all of this might have been avoided. Remember that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) had introduced legislation to curb the Obama administration’s pro-terrorist policy, in the form of legislation called the Stop Arming Terrorists bill. This is the same member of Congress now being attacked by Hillary Clinton, Obama’s former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate. Hillary implies that Gabbard is a Russian agent for opposing the war in Syria.

Obama’s support for terrorism did not get the kind of attention that the media, led by the Washington Post and New York Times, lavished on anonymous but false charges from unnamed intelligence officials regarding Russia supposedly helping Trump during the 2016 campaign.

Looking back, perhaps we can safely conclude that Russia-gate was designed to divert the public’s attention away from Obama’s involvement — and the involvement of the CIA — in supporting terrorism in Syria.

While Rep. Gabbard has some typical left-wing views and gave a bizarre “Yoga Day” speech at the U.N. years ago, we noted at the time of Trump’s election to the presidency that she had emerged as an independent voice in the Democratic Party who is willing to blow the whistle on a pro-terrorist Obama Deep State policy that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands in the Middle East. In this area, she strikes a chord with President Trump and many of his conservative supporters.

Interestingly, Trump met with Gabbard when he was assembling his cabinet and grappling with Obama’s foreign policy legacy. She reportedly said that Trump “asked her to meet with him about the country’s policies regarding Syria, the fight against terrorist groups and other foreign policy challenges.”

This isn’t something Republicans or Democrats want to talk about, since many were implicated in Obama’s destruction of Libya, Syria, and much of the Middle East. Instead, in support of the so-called NATO Support Act, the vast majority of House Republicans joined Democrats to pass the bill in January by a vote of 357 to 22, after members of both parties gave impassioned speeches for why the NATO alliance was so vital to preserve and protect.

Yet, when NATO member Turkey engages in a border security operation in Syria, to protect its people from the Communist Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and other terrorists, most members of Congress condemned Turkey and Trump. Indeed, in this latest vote, 129 Republicans joined 225 Democrats in condemning Trump for finally getting U.S. troops out of northern Syria. Only 60 members of the House — all Republicans – voted for Trump’s position.

Let’s understand that Congress failed to authorize the military intervention by Obama but objected when Trump does his constitutional duty by getting U.S. forces out of harm’s way. This serves to validate the point made by Republican Senator Rand Paul – that the U.S. military presence in Syria is the result of an illegal policy.

“The Constitution is quite clear,” Senator Paul notes. “No authorization has ever been given for the use of force in Syria. No authorization of declaration of war. No permission to be there at all. So if they want to insert themselves into this civil war, by all means, let’s have a debate. Let’s have the constitutional debate. But I, for one, am not willing to send one young man or one young woman — one soldier — over there without a clear mission. There is no clear mission.”

The picture is confused by right-wing commentators and conservative web sites being critical of Trump’s decision to withdraw American forces from Syria.

What was the alternative? To keep U.S. troops in northern Syria and have them wage war against the Turkish Armed Forces? It would have gotten American troops killed. And it would have defeated the purpose of having NATO members take more care of their own security needs.

My survey of various conservative news sites showed that most had a knee-jerk response in favor of our Marxist Kurdish “allies” and the Christians who fought alongside them in a front called the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and have ended up as human shields.

Many Christians, here and abroad, forget the Kurdish involvement in the genocide against the Christians in Armenia in 1915. As Trump has said, the Kurds have always fought for themselves and their own interests. Their long-time ally has been Moscow, not Washington.

What we can also say with certainty is that much of this conflict and bloodshed resulted from President Barack Hussein Obama’s policy of using John Brennan’s CIA to funnel $1 billion to various groups fighting the Assad regime in Syria. That cost figure was applied by the New York Times when it noted that Trump’s first CIA director, Mike Pompeo, had pulled the plug on that dangerous and expensive program. The Times, however, indicated no interest in identifying the Deep State operatives behind the policy with blood on their hands.

The fact is that Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan was in charge of an Obama policy that decimated the Middle East by producing an estimated 500,000 dead with seemingly endless wars that produced millions of refugees. And the crisis is ongoing, now with Turkey finally acting to clean up part of the mess on its own border.

For opposing this policy from within the Democratic Party, Gabbard finds herself under attack. But Hillary & Company have picked on the wrong target. Gabbard served two tours of duty in the Middle East and continues her service as a major in the Army National Guard. She understands the cost of American involvement in military conflict.

As a presidential candidate, one of her legislative priorities, H.Res.411, declares that “if the President initiates wars without prior congressional declarations, such action shall constitute impeachable ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ which shall cause the House of Representatives to vote articles of impeachment.”

Even without such legislation, of course, Obama could have been impeached. It is still not too late to investigate this policy and expose those behind it.

For her part, Gabbard has promised to continue “calling for an end America’s interventionist wars of regime change that have cost our nation trillions of dollars and thousands of lives, simultaneously creating more devastation, human suffering, and refugees in the countries where U.S. regime change war is waged.”

It is a charge that is demonstrably true but which damages Obama, not Trump. After all, Trump is trying to extricate the U.S. from this misery and death. This fact helps explain why Hillary and her Deep State backers are so desperate to smear Gabbard – and defeat Trump.

Investigate Obama’s CIA For Syria Fiasco

By: Cliff Kincaid

Many Republicans and Democrats seem to think American national security lies with several thousand communist terrorist homeless Kurdish fighters, who are devoted to a mythical “Kurdistan,” over and above the Turkish Armed Forces, the second largest standing military force in NATO.

Nothing would please Vladimir Putin more. The Russians have long worked to destroy NATO. Now, the Congress, led by Senators Lindsey Graham and Chris Van Hollen,  is doing it for them, threatening to pass economic sanctions against Turkey because the nation is defending its borders from terrorists armed by Barack Hussein Obama’s CIA and Pentagon.

All of this is being allowed to happen because the conservative media have become indistinguishable from the left-wing media on the matter of the alleged U.S. betrayal of our Kurdish “allies.”

The constant pro-Kurdish propaganda demonstrates that the Deep State, with its hooks into both major political parties and much of the media, is desperate to keep the U.S. bogged down in endless and costly military conflicts. Trump is, so far, standing up to the pressure.

Indeed, at a news conference, Trump put the blame where it belongs – on Barack Hussein Obama, saying, “Obama started this whole thing” when he “created a natural war with Turkey and their longtime enemy, PKK. And they’re still there.”

The PKK is the Marxist-Leninist designated terror group whose Syrian affiliate, the YPG, was armed and funded by Obama’s Deep State. Their rationale was that funding one group of terrorists was necessary in defeating another group of terrorists, ISIS.

At this point, despite a ceasefire and plan to move YPG terrorists away from the Turkish border, it’s not clear what the future holds.

Under these circumstances, however, it makes no sense for President Trump or Vice-President Pence to threaten Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. It’s his country that has been under attack for decades by the communist PKK/YPG. He has every right to fight back. And it makes absolutely no sense for the Congress to vote against the president’s policy and then threaten Turkey with crippling economic sanctions to drive it further into the arms of Vladimir Putin.

Turkey’s border security operation wouldn’t have been possible without Trump’s wise decision to get American troops out of the way, and out of the business of protecting Marxists fighting for the Marxist-inspired “liberation” of “Kurdistan.” That was Trump’s only practical way out of this morass. He has nothing to apologize for. Indeed, he ought to express support for Turkey, a long-time member of NATO, in this struggle.

Ignoring the communist terrorist orientation of the PKK/YPG, Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy referred to the Kurdish forces that “fought bravely alongside ours in the recent, successful campaign to destroy the Islamic State caliphate.”

But any real conservative would not justify using one terrorist group to fight another when American troops are bound to get caught in the middle of the bloodletting. There’s no justification for supporting Obama’s illegal policy of supporting terrorism, on the grounds that “our” terrorists were better than some other terrorist group. This is the kind of madness that results in endless wars and thousands of wounded and dead American military personnel. This has got to stop.

In getting U.S. troops out of the business of funding and protecting the PKK and its affiliate, the YPG, National Review’s Rich Lowry claimed that Trump was repeating Obama’s mistake when Trump was, in fact, reversing the Obama policy of support a Marxist guerrilla movement. Lowry, of course, never explained to his readers the Marxist roots of the Kurdistan Workers Party, the PKK, and its demands for their own state of “Kurdistan.” National Review is returning to its Never-Trump roots.

Also at National Review, a “conservative” journal, Andrew McCarthy talked out of both sides of his mouth about our Kurdish “allies,” the PKK and YPG, saying, “…I would be open to considering the removal of both the PKK from the terrorist list and Turkey from NATO. For now, though, the blunt facts are that the PKK is a terrorist organization and Turkey is our ally. ”

So despite its terror campaign of killing innocent people, he is suggesting we should consider whitewashing the Marxist PKK’s record or consider changing the law to permit support for terrorism.  This deadly mumbo jumbo is what passes for modern conservatism.  Such a view is guaranteed to get the U.S. more deeply involved in disastrous Middle East politics.

In more confusing rhetoric, he writes, “Without any public debate, the Obama administration in 2014 insinuated our nation into the Kurdish — Turk conflict by arming the YPG [an affiliate of the PKK]. To be sure, our intentions were good. ISIS had besieged the city of Kobani in northern Syria; but Turkey understandably regards the YPG as a terrorist organization, complicit in the PKK insurgency.”

This former federal prosecutor, who had stated publicly that Robert Mueller was a great choice for Russia-gate prosecutor, doesn’t seem to understand that the lack of “public debate” means that “conservatives” at the time said and did nothing. McCarthy writes that arming the Kurds “undermined our anti-terrorism laws while giving [Turkish leader] Erdogan incentive to align with Russia and mend fences with Iran.” Yes, Obama broke the law and pushed Turkey into the arms of Russia. That’s why there is chaos in the region today.

Obama’s intentions were good? The law prohibits support for foreign terrorist organizations. Why wasn’t Obama held accountable or even impeached?

Other commentators on the right, including at the “conservative” American Enterprise Institute, are imagining all kinds of reasons and excuses to continue supporting communist Kurds. Marc A. Thiessen, who also writes for the Washington Post, is regularly on Fox News trying to get Trump to beat up on Erdogan.

The AEI is financed by big conservative foundation money.

One of their most popular arguments is that bolstering Marxism in the region somehow helps Christians. Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council buys into this one. He says the U.S. must “stand” with the Kurds, ignoring their history of Marxist terror.

In the face of the well-documented facts about the communist nature of the PKK, easily ascertained by such diverse sources as The New American and the Wall Street Journal, a so-called “conservative” writer named Quin Hillyer wrote a piece for the Washington Examiner accusing President Trump of malfeasance for supposedly abandoning these brave and heroic people. He makes no mention of their affinity for a philosophy that has killed one hundred million people.

Rather than bash President Trump over Syria or attack long-time NATO ally Turkey, Congress ought to open investigations into the activities of the Deep State under Obama. The inquiry would and should examine CIA support under pro-communist CIA Director John Brennan for the PKK/YPG.

That investigation would take real guts. Let’s see if Senator Lindsey Graham has the courage to launch it.

The Next Ilhan Omar Could Be a Kurd

By: Cliff Kincaid

In response to one of the predictable and common “Trump Betrays the Kurds” pro-impeachment stories, a reader of the libertarian Reason magazine noted, “They are Marxist guerrillas who want to establish an independent socialist state in their ancestral lands. They’ve been fighting for that goal for half a century and they can and will continue doing so without US support just as they always have.”

This reader, armed with common sense and true facts, understands something that most of the media pretend not to — that our Kurdish “allies” are communist terrorists who have murdered thousands of people in Turkey.

Nobody expects the truth from the liberal “fake news” media. But conservative media seem just as ignorant or clueless as their left-wing counterparts. In raw displays of pro-Marxist propaganda, they are now calling Turkey’s border security operation “ethnic cleansing” or even “genocide.”

To its credit, the Wall Street Journal ran an article in 2015 about our “allies,” openly identifying them as Marxist and even Maoist. The writers noted “the remarkable rise” of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, a “cultlike Marxist-inspired group” that evolved “from ragtag militia to regional power player.”

But this evolution was no accident. President Barack Hussein Obama’s CIA and Pentagon set up a PKK front, the YPG, then integrated that outfit into another front, the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). It was a shell game to disguise a pro-terror policy, justified in the name of defeating another terror group, ISIS.

The Journal article noted, “The Kurdish guerrilla groups pledge allegiance to Abdullah Ocalan, the PKK chief imprisoned on a Turkish island since 1999. From jail in 2005, he established PKK affiliates that evolved into today’s YPG, HPG and PJAK. The PKK and affiliates have car-bombed Turkish cities, kidnapped hundreds and killed Turkish and Kurdish state employees. In 2009, the U.S. Treasury Department designated their leadership as significant narcotics traffickers.”

This is the group Obama directed money and arms to through the Pentagon, the CIA, and other Middle East countries. It is a classic Deep State operation that resulted in more suffering and death.  The same Deep State that ran this illegal undeclared war now wants to impeach Trump because he promised to end it.

For its part, Turkey has every right to defend itself and its citizens. Consider that we have a bad enough problem with our porous southern border. If terrorists were killing Americans from a base in Mexico, we would demand an invasion of Mexico and a declaration of war on Mexico from the U.S. Congress.  That’s the kind of problem Turkey faces across its border.

Turkey’s anti-terrorism operations do not in the least constitute “ethnic cleansing,” as a writer for the Gatestone Institute claims. People may not like Turkey’s government or president, but the fact remains that the nation is a member of NATO and is defending its borders. Traditionally, it was an anti-Soviet American ally.

The Journal article, which is now ignored in the publication’s coverage of the plight of the “Kurdish fighters,” noted that the PKK practices an offshoot of Marxism it calls “Democratic Confederalism” and that it “aims to create a Maoist-inspired agrarian society that opposes landowning classes, espouses gender equality and distances itself from religion. Its guerrillas speak of a leaderless society of equals but also glorify Mr. Ocalan with fanatical devotion. ” Ocalan was identified as a Soviet KGB agent by dissident KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko before he was poisoned by Russia over his knowledge of Russian terror networks.

So this group is not only a Marxist organization, it is a death cult. But its sympathy for “gender equality” undoubtedly made it popular with the left-wing in this country. (The Journal article focused on female Kurdish Marxist fighters).

A young writer for The New American, Alex Newman, had this all figured out years ago, when he wrote an article headlined, “Obama Showers Support on Communist Terrorists in Syria, Iraq,”  He noted, “All of the support [for the Kurdish PKK/YPG] means, in short, that the Obama administration was once again openly and unlawfully providing material support to a designated terrorist organization. Similar activities by an everyday U.S. citizen would and often do see that citizen promptly thrown into prison.”

Looking at the history of this group, which is documented by various open and public sources, Newman pointed out, “The radical outfit [the PKK] was created in the late 1970s by communist militant Abdullah Ocalan, with backing from the mass-murdering Soviet dictatorship. Its primary goal was the creation of a Marxist-Leninist regime to rule over the Kurds in Turkey, with ambitions to one day rule over all Kurds from Iran, Iraq, and Syria under a unified ‘Kurdistan.’”

He wrote, “Congress must take immediate action to rein in the Obama administration’s deadly support for communist and Islamist terrorist groups, as well as its flagrant violation of anti-terrorism laws.”

But Congress did nothing. Instead, in the wake of Trump’s smart decision to withdrawal from this hell hole in Syria, the House passed H.J.Res.77, “Opposing the decision to end certain United States efforts to prevent Turkish military operations against Syrian Kurdish forces in Northeast Syria.” It passed by a 354-60 vote, with all 60 dissenting votes coming from Republicans. All House Democrats voted for more war and the Marxist Kurds.

Obama was never impeached over his illegal foreign policy that was passed on to Trump.  And once President Trump decided to get the U.S. out of this no-win situation, members of both political parties and their lapdogs in the media went nuts, accusing Trump somehow of abandoning or betraying our “allies,” in this case Marxist terrorists.

Trump is right: Washington is insane. It seems like the Deep State is promoting Moscow’s objectives in the region.  When Trump pushes back, he is accused of serving Moscow’s interests. It’s a massive scam.

Now, in the pages of Reason magazine, we see the next phase in the anti-Trump campaign.  In an article entitled, “Let the Kurds Come to America,” the writer says we should open our borders to about one million Kurds and that, “Even if they all came to the U.S., America could absorb them without breaking a sweat.”

It’s Kurdistan in America, another source of votes for the “progressive” Rainbow Nation strategy of total power.

America’s Marxist “Allies” in Syria

By: Cliff Kincaid

Despite what you may have heard, America’s Kurdish “allies” are not our friends. They are mostly Marxists. The founder of their movement was trained by the KGB. They are not worth one drop of American blood.

In the same away that President Barack Hussein Obama supported Al Qaeda in Libya, leading to the Benghazi massacre, he armed the PKK/YPG Kurdish forces in Syria who are in reality, Marxist terrorists.

In this media age, when the phrase “Trump Betrays the Kurds” is easy to repeat for purposes of impeachment, it’s important to take a moment and look at the facts. Once again, we find Trump is the victim of “fake news” from the Deep State and its media allies.

The PKK, a designated Kurdish Marxist-Leninist terrorist organization also known as the Kurdistan Workers Party, has killed thousands of people in Turkey and has bombed or attacked the country’s tourism industry, hospitals and businesses. Its Syrian affiliate is known as the YPG, for People’s Protection Units.

Dr. Andrew Bostom, an expert on the politics of the Middle East who has analyzed the Kurds as a Marxist-driven movement, tells me,  “I have to say, Trump’s gut-driven ‘vision’ that the Muslim world is a body and soul and wealth-destroying morass for the U.S. and getting the hell out of it, is far wiser than any comparable muddled ‘vision’ from the oxymoronically dubbed ‘think tanks.”

​Indeed, various commentators from the think tanks (on the right and left) and in the media, from Fox News to MSNBC to CNN and even the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), are giving us disinformation about our Kurdish “allies” supposedly being “betrayed” in northern Syria.  Our formal alliance in the region is with the Turks, a member of NATO, not the Kurds. Turkey is a member of NATO with an orientation that has historically been anti-Soviet and therefore anti-Russian. Obama’s policies pushed the Turks closer to Russia.

This was because, under Obama, the Marxist Kurds got a new lease on life.

As explained by former Obama official Wa’el Alzayat, “Following the rise of Daesh [ISIS] in 2014, the Obama administration scrambled to confront the terror group without committing US ground troops…In Syria, it settled on the Syrian franchise of Marxist-guerrillas known as the YPG – and from the beginning, the decision was problematic. The YPG shares the same command structure and ideology as their Turkish counterparts, the PKK, who were and remain a designated terror group by Turkey and the United States.”

Alexander Litvinenko, a former Russian intelligence agent poisoned by Russian intelligence, had identified a number of terrorist leaders as actual KGB agents, including Abdullah Ocalan, head of the PKK. His knowledge of Soviet/Russian terror networks is one reason why he was killed.

In the same way, Al Qaeda spawned ISIS, the PKK gave rise to the YPG. Alzayat adds: “In an effort to repackage the group, US Department of Defense officials convinced the YPG to rebrand as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and to add some Arab elements.”

Alzayat, who served as a policy expert at the U.S. Department of State, has given us a very honest and candid assessment of the disastrous Obama policy that Trump inherited. In effect, the Obama Administration played into Russian hands, leading to the conflict and chaos we see today.

Obama had transformed a Marxist terror group into a “democratic” anti-terrorist movement supported by the Pentagon and the Deep State’s CIA. It was a foreign policy never voted on by the American people and which should have necessitated Obama’s impeachment.

Trump was wise – and fulfilling a campaign promise – when he got U.S. forces out of this quagmire.  But he should not fall into the trap of blaming Turkey for what Obama’s policy has done to the Middle East. Turkey is defending itself.

But in order to weaken Trump’s presidency and prepare him for impeachment, his alleged “betrayal” of the Kurds has been trumpeted far and wide. The charge is a lie based on Deep State and CIA propaganda. What should be done is to expose the traitorous Obama policies that produced the current debacle.

Israeli journalist Caroline Glick notes in her column that “Taking on the defense of Syria’s Kurds would commit the US to an open-ended presence in Syria and justify Turkish antagonism. America’s interests would not be advanced. They would be harmed, particularly in light of the YPG’s selling trait for Obama – its warm ties to Assad and Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps.”

One of the few voices of reason in the media, Luke Coffey of the Heritage Foundation, has described the YPG as America’s Marxist and terrorist-linked “partners” in Syria.

It makes no sense to fight Jihadists with Marxists, or vice versa, when they are all opposed to American interests and play into Russian hands.

From the start, as President Trump has suggested, the Kurds have been fighting for their own land and state. They were, of course, willing to take Pentagon and CIA support for their own purposes. They did what was in their interest. In truth, however, they were another Soviet-funded “liberation” movement, part of the “Red Jihad” engineered by Moscow over the course of decades.

It’s sad to see so many “conservatives” and national security “hardliners” buying the left-wing Marxist propaganda about America’s Kurdish “allies.” The development demonstrates that, like the left, many in America’s “conservative” movement are geopolitical ignoramuses with little real understanding of Russian maneuvers in the Middle East.

This helps explain why, until Trump, we had a ‘bipartisan” foreign policy of losing wars and producing thousands of wounded warriors.

It’s time for that bloodshed to end.

Rep. Adam Schiff Demands Vaccine Censorship

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

With his Russia-gate conspiracy theory debunked, House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff has turned his attention to demanding that Google, Facebook, and Amazon stop carrying certain educational vaccine-related materials. People are now even being banned from “public places” for refusing vaccinations. Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center responds to this “Dark Night of Oppression” that includes “The New Internet Police,” the banning of books and films, and the prospect of a mandatory HIV/AIDS vaccine.

CENSORED! Eco-Fascism, Nazi Ecology, And Our Green Future

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

Why are the Big Tech companies censoring the facts about the evil guiding the New Zealand mosque shooter? In this dramatic presentation, Mark Musser, the author of “Nazi Ecology,” explains how eco-fascism and devotion to the Communist Chinese model of social development motivated the mass murderer, and how the “Green New Fascist Deal” is a modern example of where like-minded socialists want to take America. Don’t miss this interview with the world’s foremost expert on Nazi and fascist “green” ideology.

The Green Killing Machine and the Red Jihad

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

The media have their narrative: the New Zealand mosque shooter was a gun-toting Trump supporter who hated Muslims. His “manifesto” declares, “The nation with the closest political and social values to my own is the People’s Republic of China.” This looks like a case of Red Jihad.

The media have been pressuring the high-tech companies to destroy the evidence about what this killer really thought about current and world events. They do not want us to investigate this matter without them filtering the information. I located a copy of his so-called “manifesto.” Try to find it. Let me know if you find it. Email me at [email protected] It will give you an insight into his mind-set.

He was not a conservative or a Christian. He was a self-proclaimed “eco-fascist” who admires Red China. In China, they put Muslims in camps. Rather than do this, law enforcement should do a better job of monitoring Jihadist sermons within the mosques and closing down those mosques which facilitate violence and murder. Our FBI should do a better job on going after the enemies within using mosques to plan attacks against Americans.

Tucker Carlson and the Real Victims of Media Censorship

By: Cliff Kincaid

Billionaire Bill Gates is pouring some of his wealth into development of an HIV/AIDS vaccine that will be mandatory for all young people, even children, in the U.S. Perhaps a scheduled “breakthrough” in this controversial effort and a plan for universal HIV vaccinations explains why major media organs and corporate and government officials are being used to demonize those concerned about the safety of vaccines. The U.N.’s World Health Organization (WHO) has gone so far as to issue a report ranking “vaccine hesitancy” as one of the top “Ten Threats to Global Health in 2019.”

With a mandatory HIV/AIDS vaccine on the horizon, we should be hesitant. The AIDS vaccine could be a major threat to global health. As a vaccine, it gives people a form of the virus that causes AIDS on the assumption that we won’t develop the entire deadly disease. If this assumption is faulty, it could cause HIV/AIDS in millions of healthy people, many of them children and the elderly. There was a swine flu vaccine scandal in the 1970s, when people got neurological disorders from the vaccine before it was withdrawn.

Another Russian Plot?

Now that the Russian “collusion” story involving President Trump has run out of steam, new villains have to be identified. Indeed, Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who is still pursuing Russia-gate against President Trump, has openly called for big companies such as Google, Amazon, and Facebook to censor information casting doubt on the effectiveness of vaccines.

Although it has been open to different views in the past, the “conservative” Fox News channel is now apparently backing Facebook’s effort to “crack down on misinformation about vaccines.”  Reporter Dan Springer’s story was headlined, “Study links Russia to US misinformation campaign on vaccinations.” But his own story quoted research saying the Russians were playing both sides – running articles for and against vaccines.

Despite claims to the contrary from Big Government, Big Pharma, and Big Media, many people believe there is evidence linking the rise in autism among children to the MMR vaccine. Rather than have an open debate, the controversial film “Vaxxed,” which explores corruption in science regarding the MMR vaccine, was yanked from theaters and pulled from Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Film Festival. The producers of “Vaxxed” also report their film was removed from Amazon Video, including Prime and streaming, and Pinterest removed searches about safer vaccines and vaccine injury.

Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center, is the parent of a vaccine injured child and draws attention to children and young people now being subjected to 69 doses of 16 vaccines (starting on the day of birth) by the age of 18. She recently recorded a video on “The New Internet Police” that explains how a coordinated attack is already underway on those who believe in personal freedom and informed consent in regard to these vaccines. Her group is being actively censored and treated almost like a “hate group.” On January 19, she notes, the editorial board of the liberal New York Times declared that “anti-vaxxers” are “the enemy.”

Fox News should resist this kind of censorship scheme. But its own host, Tucker Carlson,  author of Ship of Fools, made a fool of himself years ago by spouting offensive nonsense on a shock jock show hosted by “Bubba the Love Sponge.” Now, Carlson’s job is hanging in the balance, as he claims being victimized by “the mob.” He has a national media platform that he can use to defend himself, and Fox News is sticking by him (for the time being.) A media personality who generates over $70,000 per speaking appearance, Carlson also has the Daily Caller News Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Daily Caller, which he founded, doing articles on his behalf. It has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Koch Brothers and the Sarah Scaife Foundation.

But this face of modern conservatism is now looking like a major embarrassment to the conservative movement. He’s not even that conservative; he frequently brings on anti-American journalist and Edward Snowden collaborator Glenn Greenwald as an authoritative source of information on Russia-gate, and allows Fox contributor Tammy Bruce, a pro-abortion lesbian activist, to posture on his show as a deep conservative thinker. It looks like Tucker has personal knowledge of the “Ship of Fools” he writes about. He may be going overboard.   

Who’s More Foolish?

What’s far more important than the fate of a rich wise guy talk show host confused about conservatism is that we have a national debate on Fox and other channels on such matters as the well-established and verifiable fact that vaccines do cause injury and death, and that an HIV/AIDS vaccine is being fast-tracked. Many people even today do not realize that while vaccines work for a large majority of people, they can also cause serious health problems, even death, for some. In recognition of this fact, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. A National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to compensate victims of vaccines has dispensed over $4 billion for vaccine injuries and deaths.

The common sense driving the parental concern crosses ideological lines. In my case, one day after the birth of our third child, hospital personnel tried to take him away for a hepatitis B vaccine shot. It’s because of the work of Barbara Loe Fisher and the National Vaccine Information Center that I was skeptical of some vaccines. My wife and I refused to have our child injected with this controversial vaccine. Six months later, concerns were raised about possible mercury exposure in children given hepatitis B vaccines containing thimerosal, a preservative derived from mercury, a toxic metal that can cause immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions. Thimerosal is a preservative that was used as an additive in vaccines to prevent bacterial and fungal contamination.

Hepatitis B mostly affects drug users, the sexually promiscuous, blood transfusion recipients, and health care workers. So why are innocent children who are not at risk being required to be vaccinated? It’s because the government doesn’t want or can’t identify those who ARE at risk. It’s easier to get the children, who are least likely to get the disease. The same is likely to be true for an HIV/AIDS vaccine. Even assuming that such a vaccine could be developed, it will be easier for national and global public health officials to target those for vaccination who are at less risk of contracting the disease. 

I interviewed Barbara Loe Fisher four years ago. “There is a tightening of the noose around the people’s neck when it comes to being able to make vaccine choices,” she said on America’s Survival TV. She also discussed the prospect of a mandatory AIDS vaccine. She is the co-author,  DPT: A Shot in the Dark (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1985), and has served on several federal advisory panels and committees. But her organization today is facing a massive censorship campaign because it stands in the way of global and national efforts to inject populations with vaccines containing controversial and sometimes deadly ingredients.

National HIV/AIDS Emergency

Years ago, I launched the Committee to Protect Medical Freedom, a project of America’s Survival, Inc. and held the first national conference opposing a mandatory HIV/AIDS vaccine. Barbara was a speaker. Jim Turner, a Washington, D.C. attorney and expert on the swine flu vaccine scandal of the 1970s, discussed how government vaccination programs can go horribly wrong. We examined how President Bill Clinton had declared AIDS a “national security threat,” created a Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS through an executive order, and that U.S. military personnel were being subjected to experimental vaccines. President Barack Obama issued his own follow-up executive order, “Implementing the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States for 2015-2020,” in 2015, and President Trump continued implementation of this strategy in 2017.

Such an “emergency” declaration could also be used today on the civilian population.

The recent controversy over vaccines suggests a governmental effort at the national and even global levels to roll out a controversial new mandatory vaccine policy, possibly involving an HIV/AIDS vaccine. Does President Trump understand what the bureaucrats are doing?  

Despite the censorship, a Coalition for Informed Consent in vaccinations has been established. The NVIC is one of dozens of member organizations around the country opposed to mandatory vaccination laws. Hundreds of concerned citizens favoring freedom of choice in health care traveled to Washington D.C. to have their voices heard at a stacked Senate hearing on March 5, 2019, regarding “Preventable Disease Outbreaks.” Parents concerned or “hesitant” about vaccines were portrayed as the villains.

Rather than censor and ostracize concerned parents, Congress should be scrutinizing where taxpayer and U.N. dollars are going. Needed scrutiny should begin with the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), an organization backed by grants from the William H. Gates Foundation, the World Bank, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Starr Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, USAID, PEPFAR (the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) and UNAIDS. The president of IAVI is the former chief public health and science officer with Merck Vaccines and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

World AIDS Vaccine Day is observed annually on May 18.  It marks the day Bill Clinton gave a speech declaring, “Only a truly effective, preventive HIV vaccine can limit and eventually eliminate the threat of AIDS.” The truth is that most people can avoid HIV/AIDS if they just live a healthy and normal lifestyle. But we may not be able to avoid the AIDS vaccine. The lives of thousands of innocent Americans are far more important than the careers of a few rich talk show hosts on Fox News. Let Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity give these Americans a voice. That would truly drive the liberals and their own Fox News corporate bosses crazy. It would also reaffirm the right of freedom of speech.
