Biden’s Connection to no-bid Contract for Endeavor

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Hat tip: On January 20th, 2021, the very day President Joe Biden took the oath of office, Endeavors put out a news release announcing the hiring of Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, a former Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official who also served as a Biden transition advisor on Homeland Security issues.

“This is a no-bid contract, and those should be used in only the most extraordinary circumstances,” said Tom Jones of the American Accountability Foundation, a conservative-leaning watchdog organization.

Andrew Lorenzen-Strait landed his job at Endeavors (formerly Family Endeavors) in January straight off the Biden transition team following a stint with one regional Lutheran refugee contractor, and a little over six months at LIRS, the national organization.

He had spent years in the federal government, at ICE in fact, before hitting on this likely lucrative gig.

EXCLUSIVE: The Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector General’s office is evaluating a multi-million dollar contract awarded to a Texas company that employs a former Biden transition official, multiple sources with the probe confirm to Fox News.

A DHS IG official tells Fox News the contract, with the San Antonio-based nonprofit Endeavors, is the subject of an ongoing evaluation to look at how “ICE plans to house migrant families in hotels, and how ICE selected a contractor to implement these plans.” The Formal title of the probe is, “ICE’s Contract to House Migrants in Hotels.”

SolarWinds Strikes Again and Again

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Primer: The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, chaired by Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) only held one meeting on SolarWinds and none related to the DarkSide, both of which have caused major interruptions in the supply chain and national security. It was last February that the committee hosted a session via WebEx with a few witnesses of which nothing was determined or solved.

The cyber attackers responsible for the SolarWinds hack targeted U.S. organizations again last week, Microsoft said.

The Russian hackers that U.S. intelligence says are behind the SolarWinds breach that previously compromised government networks went last week after government agencies, think tanks, consultants, and non-governmental organizations, said Microsoft Corporate Vice President Tom Burt.

“This wave of attacks targeted approximately 3,000 email accounts at more than 150 different organizations,” Mr. Burt wrote on Microsoft’s blog. “While organizations in the United States received the largest share of attacks, targeted victims span at least 24 countries. At least a quarter of the targeted organizations were involved in international development, humanitarian and human rights work.” More here.

New details are emerging from a cyberattack that hit about 3,000 email accounts and 150 government agencies and think tanks spanning 24 countries, including the U.S., this week.

Communist Revolution in America

By: Ray DiLorenzo | CCNS

If you were a fervent America-hating Marxist living in the United States, what would you do with a nation that is rich, powerful, and highly successful? What do you do with a nation that has religious freedom, is basically a moral country, respectful of law and order with the Judeo-Christian principles of hard work, the dignity of human life, strong family ties, common decency, a strong desire for education, and a sense of accountability to God? America has freedom, capitalism, the opportunity to go up the economic ladder as far as your willingness to work hard. It is not a perfect country. Some of its past, like every other country on this planet, is dubious, but it is constantly improving, rearranging, and evolving. It is the envy of the world.

What do you do when you have a commitment to turn this nation around to your way of thinking? Now, remember, this is not early 20th century Russia where people lived the life of serfs and Europe was in the midst of an industrial revolution, modernizing, and living in relative comfort.

You certainly don’t try to instigate a violent revolution. Revolution against what? Freedom? No, you change the culture. You let the people make the change. They just need a push in the left direction. You find its past faults and pull off any scabs you can find to stop the healing. You use their freedom to destroy them. They are not going to prevent you from speaking. You know it will take decades, but you are willing to put the time in. By the time they figure out what is going on, it will be too late. You have support from other Communist countries like the old Soviet Union and now Communist China. Stalin supported various Marxist organizations in the United States by sending people and money (McCarthy was right).

Early on you manage to get your comrades hired as professors, teachers, and philosophers in major universities. The students will listen to you because your theories are quaint, and America is an open society, curious, with freedom of speech. They will always listen to you even if just to avoid being rude, but enough people will always be taken in. You branch out into America’s favorite pastimes, Hollywood, and music. You introduce nudity in movies, a little at first, then rock music that goes from love songs to heavy metal, satanic at its core. You encourage sexual promiscuity, but call it sexual freedom. You know the by-product will be abortion, thereby cheapening life itself. You pit one group against the other, not fighting racism or misogyny but inflaming it. You replace a God-centered ethic with a self-centered ethic. You can now freely choose your sexual preference, gender preference, kill your child, whatever.
