One of the most successful Chinese Communist disinformation successes of the last year has been to convince many people that the China virus is either a hoax or just another flu-like illness. Actually, the Chinese have never made that claim. They know the virus is real and that it kills in new and unique ways. They know because the evidence is that their scientists either produced or released it from a laboratory.

The communist lie is that it accidentally came out of a wet market.

Instead of holding the Red Chinese responsible, the “hoax” and other claims have been picked up by people upset with liberal governors using the pandemic to crush individual freedoms. Some of these people are Trump supporters, which is ironic since Trump got the disease and he has been consistently correct that the virus is a killer. More than anybody, Trump knows the virus is not a hoax. Aware that it is real and a biological weapon, he has used the term, “China Virus,” so the blame can be placed where it belongs. Out of office, he still brags about Operation Warp Speed producing vaccines in record time. He and his wife have been vaccinated.

Those claiming the virus is a hoax are naturally skeptical of what the U.S. medical and scientific establishments say about a range of medical issues and problems. Many are justifiably angry over restrictions on their freedoms and the destruction of their businesses through lockdowns. They argue that the virus has been “weaponized,” in the sense that cases have been inflated, in order to control people with ineffective masks and social distancing.

These patriotic Americans are losing sight of what is truly our main enemy — the murderous Chinese communist regime in Beijing that unleashed this disease on the U.S. and the world. What’s worse, it could happen again.

Some question death certificates, as to whether or not Covid killed someone directly or just contributed to the death. Let’s assume that the number of Covid-related deaths has been inflated by two, because of confusion over direct and indirect causes. That still leaves 250,000 dead Americans from the China virus. This is a war.

The same logic applies to masks. There are questions about their effectiveness. But as a non-scientist, I always take precautions and try to avoid the risk. I wear a mask as a result of common sense and common courtesy. The key point, documented by victims and front-line health care workers, is that the virus has unique characteristics, unlike the traditional flu, that enables it to attack weak and vulnerable people. These are real people getting very sick and dying.

As Trump repeatedly said, it is the China virus. It seems to be more infectious than the ordinary flu and leaves some victims unable to breathe, smell, or taste.

One man who knew a lot about communist disinformation techniques was Lt. Gen Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence official ever to defect to the West. The former head of Romanian intelligence, he wrote a book about communist disinformation with Ronald J. Rychlak, Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Mississippi School of Law. Their book was titled, Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism.

Pacepa recently died of Covid-19 and blamed China for spreading the disease, with Rychlak telling me, “Pacepa took the threat of the virus seriously. He and his 92-year-old wife tried to avoid the risk as best they could. The virus prevented at least one, probably two meetings he and I would have had over the past year. It also stopped my research in Rome for the second edition of Disinformation that we were working on.”

The further irony with some conservatives casting doubt on the nature of the virus is that many of them hold liberal governors like Andrew Cuomo of New York responsible for spreading the disease into nursing homes, killing thousands. They can’t have it both ways – either it’s a hoax and the presence of the virus in the nursing homes was of no consequence, or it’s a deadly killer that put thousands of old people into their graves prematurely. I believe the latter is the case and that Cuomo and other governors have to be held accountable.

I have done shows on the unreliability of the Covid-19 tests and the effectiveness of the masks or vaccines. I have done many America’s Survival TV shows on these topics. But I have never doubted that the virus is a real one that came from China.

The kind of work Pacepa and Rychlak conducted on disinformation carried out by the Soviet Union helps us understand how claims about the coronavirus can mislead and confuse people.

Under Trump, the Pentagon, and the State Department began focusing on the on-going COVID-19 disinformation campaigns of China, Russia, and Iran. One report, “Axis of Disinformation: Propaganda from Iran, Russia, and China on COVID-19,” was written by researchers associated with U.S. Central Command’s Information Operations Division and documents how the claims advanced by these three countries are all designed to take attention away from the Chinese origin of the virus. Generally speaking, these regimes insist that the U.S. rather than China made the virus a biological weapon.

Rychlak said, “Pacepa often said that people often think of spies as stealing ideas, but the worst harm they inflict is by planting false stories — especially those false stories that cause people to question their institutions, history, and heroes. (By ‘institutions’ we mean governments and churches.) Sometimes all it takes is a counter-narrative. Thus, after the JFK assassination, Soviet disinformation experts worked to convince Americans that the CIA was to blame. Convicting the CIA was not the aim; making people look away from Soviet involvement was. I see a lot of similarities between that effort (Operation Dragon) and disinformation surrounding the China virus.”

I have written on the topic of disinformation for decades. My sources have included people like Pacepa, with whom I corresponded via email, and Herb Romerstein, who worked for the Office to Counter Soviet Disinformation at the U.S. Information Agency under President Reagan.

To cite another example of the problem, as documented in the Pacepa-Rychlak book, former Senator John Kerry, now Joe Biden’s “Climate Czar,” was a dupe who parroted communist disinformation about the U.S. military effort to keep South Vietnam free from communism.

For his part, Herb Romerstein helped unmask a liberal icon, I.F. Stone, as a Soviet agent, and exposed Senator Ted Kennedy’s collaboration with the Soviet KGB.

It’s true that U.S. intelligence agencies and political leaders have become corrupted to the point where they accept and promote communist disinformation, such as in the case of the Russian dossier that was used against Trump. But that doesn’t mean that actual disinformation campaigns emanating from our enemies do not exist. They do, and the China virus campaign is one of them.

Early into this crisis, I authored a column, “Coronavirus, China’s Lies, and Bioweapons Research,” noting, “In making the charge that the Chinese coronavirus originated in the United States, the Chinese have taken a page out of the old Soviet playbook. As concern about AIDS was growing in the 1980s, the Soviet Union launched a disinformation campaign charging that an American military laboratory had developed the virus that caused HIV/AIDS.”

Since the Soviets were lying in order to cover-up their own biological weapons program, I wondered if this was the Chinese motivation, too. It’s a logical assumption.

That is not to say that questions about a U.S. connection to the virus are illegitimate. There is evidence that U.S. agencies are linked to American and Chinese scientists working on dangerous biological experiments in China, described as “gain-of-function” research designed to make viruses more transmissible and fatal.

What is lacking is a thorough investigation, with results disseminated to the American people and the world, about whose fingerprints are all over the origins of this disease.

We know we are not going to get the truth from the U.N.’s World Health Organization and the China Joe administration.

If Trump wants to do something with major and lasting importance in his post-presidency, let him campaign for the truth about — and urge consequences for – China’s biological research.

Equally important, as we debate masks and lockdowns, what are we going to do to prevent another killer virus from being unleashed by China on the world?

Fomenting Race Wars

By: Linda Goudsmit | pundicity

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a binary theoretical framework rooted in Marxism, that defines individuals as either oppressed or oppressors based on their skin color. Critical Race Theory insists that white people are oppressors and people of color are oppressed. CRT is an obscene and entirely unAmerican doctrine because it views every individual through the prism of race, rather than the prism of merit.

Two notable black leaders in American race relations had diametrically opposed views on the subject. Martin Luther King advocated the American ideal of judging a person on the content of his character, not the color of his skin. Malcolm X embraced the anti-American, CRT prism that judges everyone and everything through the prism of race. What could be more racist?

The entire narrative of CRT is racist. So, why is racist CRT being taught in American schools? Why is racist CRT considered woke [enlightened]? Why did President Trump ban racist CRT, and why has Biden/Harris resurrected it? What is the point? What is the motive for fomenting racism?

The goal of Critical Race Theory devotees and their cancel-culture campaign is to foment race riots and a race war in the United States. WHAT? I will repeat. The goal of CRT devotees and their cancel-culture campaign is to foment race riots and a race war in the United States of America. How is CRT and its racist white privilege narrative designed to foment a race war?? Saul Alinsky provides the answer in his infamous tactical primer, Rules for Radicals. Alinsky instructs radicals to, “Rub raw the resentments of the people. . . . all issues must be polarized if action is to follow.” (p.116/133 Vintage)

Race is the simplest division to exploit because it is visible. Fomenting racial hostility is a very effective strategy for dividing and conquering a nation. The war on America promotes racism as a tactical political strategy to divide and conquer America. Rule #13 from Alinsky’s primer continues to guide the Democrat war on America and America-first President Trump because even out of office, the former president remains the existential enemy of Marxism and globalism.

Rule 13Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame. (p.130)

Truth is entirely irrelevant for Alinsky and his radical Democrat followers. Alinsky writes, “The real and only question regarding the ethics of means and ends is and always has been, ‘Does this particular end justify this particular means?'” (p.24) According to Alinsky, “the primary task of radicals is to cultivate, in people’s hearts, a visceral revulsion to the mere sight of the target’s face.”

It does not matter that Trump is NOT a racist, never was a racist, or that Trump’s policies were extremely beneficial to the black, Hispanic, and Asian communities in America. Trump and his entire conservative/populist movement must be portrayed as racist in order to foment race riots. Even President Trump’s support of law enforcement and ordered liberty have been perverted by the radical Democrats into racist attacks on white police officers. Yet again, the leftist Democrats project their own racist policies onto their targeted enemy.

The Democrat outrage over the Capitol “Insurrection” is pure Alinsky-style political theater. An excellent article on the subject was published in Frontpage Magazine 7.15.2020, by John Perazzo, titled, Why BLM Yawns at Police-Shooting Statistics. Alinsky actually tutored his followers to “present themselves as the noble defenders of high moral principles and to react dramatically with greatly exaggerated displays of ‘shock, horror, and moral outrage’ whenever their targeted enemy erred or could be depicted as having erred.”

Nancy Pelosi is the queen of Democrat hypocrisy and Alinsky-style outrage. Her insistence upon a military presence in Washington, D.C, is designed to validate her own fabricated fear-mongering narrative. As of this month, 6,000 troops remain in Washington, D.C., and barbed wire fencing surrounds the Capitol to “protect” politicians from white Trump supporters. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) said on MSNBC 3.4.2021, “We must do everything we can to protect ourselves.” Our southern border, under Biden and Pelosi, is open and unguarded. The racist messaging is that open borders to unvetted migrants of color from foreign countries are less of a threat to the nation than white Trump supporters.

Consider the sequence:

Identify Trump as the target -> attack him as a white supremacist -> continue the attacks on Trump even after he is out of office -> spread the attacks to his supporters -> support reverse racism -> target white police officers -> support violent black supremacist/Marxist movement (BLM) -> involve corporate America in the attacks and the support for BLM -> indoctrinate adults to support reverse racism with MSM echo chamber of CRT -> support defunding the police -> indoctrinate children in CRT with educational curricula that supports reverse racism -> foment CRT with governmental policies that create intolerable cognitive dissonance until the fury breaks out into the streets -> incite violence -> to blame the violence on white supremacists -> quell the Democrat CRT incited violence with government violence (military or national guard) -> present Democrats as saving the country from Trump’s white supremacists.

Henry Kissinger’s infamous remark is manifest:

“Today American’s would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by their world government.”

The sinister political purpose of fomenting race wars in America is the elimination of constitutional conservatism and the imposition of one-world government. This colossal humanitarian hoax is being sold to a regressed and frightened American public as a deliverance. If the plan succeeds, our constitutional republic will be surrendered to globalism’s planetary governance. It is the globalists who fund the politicians, who support the radical Democrats, who support CRT, who foment the racial divisiveness and coming race wars. Follow the money, always follow the money.


Trapper’s Quote Of The Week

By: Trapper Pettit

Hypocrites are the Devil’s foot soldiers. When the left demands that we need open borders to keep the population rising, and yet, they have managed to murder sixty million unborn Americans, you can bet that the Devil loves his troops.
