Congressional Candidate Takes on Soros

By: Cliff Kincaid

Multiple media outlets attacked Marjorie Taylor Greene, a successful Republican congressional candidate in Georgia. Why? As “a conservative wife, mother, and businesswoman who stands with President Trump and against the left-wing socialists who want to wreck our country,” she dared to call billionaire left-wing money bags George Soros the “enemy of the people.”

In addition to financing Democratic Party politicians and left-wing organizations such as the ACLU, Soros has subsidized a wide array of liberal causes, ranging from abortion rights to gay rights to legalization of dangerous drugs. Even former members of the terrorist Weather Underground, such as Bernardine Dohrn and Linda Evans, have appeared at functions sponsored by his so-called Open Society Institute or accepted its grants.

But Google the name of Marjorie Taylor Greene and you will be bombarded with stories designed to create the impression this Christian woman is a crazy conspiracy theorist. During the campaign, Tucker Carlson highlighted how one of her campaign ads was taken down by YouTube. Nevertheless, she won the nomination with over 57 percent of the vote and received President Trump’s enthusiastic endorsement. She got the support of the people.

One typical charge from an AP story in the New York Post said she “pushes an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that billionaire philanthropist George Soros, who is Jewish, collaborated with the Nazis.”

Many “conservatives” in and out of Congress are scared by these charges and shy away from making them. But as Rep. Louis Gohmert discovered, when he consulted the actual interview and went to the videotape, the theory is not anti-Semitic but true. Soros told the “60 Minutes” show, as Gohmert noted, that, “he had no sense of guilt about the role he played in Nazis’ confiscation of property from the Jewish people during the Holocaust.”

In addition to the usual and expected charges of racism, the media said Marjorie Taylor Greene either backed or believed in something called the QAnon “conspiracy theory,” which apparently has something to do with the idea that sex predators and perhaps Satanists operate at high-levels in American society and the world.

Regarding the latter, the Satanic Temple, an actual organization, is currently offering a “Satanic abortion ritual.” The evil of abortion is considered by many Christians not a “choice” but a modern form of paganistic child sacrifice.

In the matter of child predators, haven’t we learned about Jeffrey Epstein? Or what about:

  • Theodore McCarrick has been identified as the highest-ranking U.S. Catholic leader ever to be removed for sexually abusing a minor and is also accused of sexually abusing seminarians. He was a leading “progressive” in the church who supported homosexual civil unions, a form of marriage, as far back as 2006. Catholic columnist Matt Abbott, who reported on McCarrick’s homosexual activity back in 2005, had told me, “I believe the Church establishment and mainstream media protected him, mainly because he’s a prominent liberal cardinal.”
  • Harry Hay, the founder of the modern gay rights movement, was a supporter of the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA).
  • Dennis Hastert, the former Republican House Speaker, pleaded guilty to federal charges of lying to the FBI about a money-laundering scheme designed to cover up the case of an innocent child sexually abused by Hastert when he was a high-school wrestling coach.
  • Barack Hussein Obama was closely associated as a young man with a Communist sex pervert, Frank Marshall Davis, his mentor, and father figure. Davis, who died in 1987, was a heavy drinker and marijuana user who wrote a pornographic novel, Sex Rebel, disclosing that he had sex with children, including a 13-year-old girl. In a poem, Obama wrote about “Pop,” with strange lines about stains and smells on shorts, that Obama biographer David Maraniss confirmed was Davis. Writer Jack Cashill noted the poem has definite “sexual overtones.”

Amy Berg exposed the cover-up of pedophilia in the Catholic Church in her 2006 Oscar-nominated documentary, “Deliver Us from Evil,” and followed with her film, “An Open Secret,” about how pedophiles operate in Hollywood and cover up their crimes. The Boston Globe exposed a series of sex crimes committed by Catholic priests in an award-winning series of articles made into a film, “Spotlight,” available on Netflix.

Despite the abundant evidence of real conspiracies, and the continuing need to expose them, we are told that Marjorie Taylor Greene was a conspiracy theorist as if the label itself was evidence of unfounded charges.

As I wrote in a recent column, “The Otherworldly Powers of Darkness, Cults, and Sexual Deviancy in Politics,” there are strange people in the world who have political connections and engage in strange practices. That issue surfaced in 2016 in one of the Democratic Party emails about a “Spirit Cooking” dinner of elites involving recipes apparently written in blood.  The Washington Post said it was harmless “performance art.”

Sally Quinn, a top religion reporter for the Washington Post, wrote a book about magic, played with an Ouija board, and cast spells on her enemies.  This earned her the title, “Georgetown’s Madame Blavatsky,” a reference to the occult doctrine of Theosophy, associated with one-worlders and a fancy D.C. section of town.

Taking this one step further, an exorcism in Mount Rainier, Maryland, in the Washington, D.C. area, inspired the book by William Peter Blatty and the film, “The Exorcist.” His follow-up book, Legion, was based on Satan’s proclamation, “My name is Legion, for we are many,” in answer to Jesus’ question, “What is your name?”

As I noted recently, there are reportedly six exorcisms being conducted in the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington at the current time.

Dr. Paul Kengor’s new book, The Devil and Karl Marx is a heavily documented treatment of the father of communism’s devotion to demonic doctrines of human destruction.

S.J. Taylor’s book, Stalin’s Apologist, disclosed that the Satanist Aleister Crowley staged homosexual rituals with New York Times reporter Walter Duranty in which they chanted “blood and semen.” Duranty wrote a book, I Write as I Please, which summarizes his approach as well as that of the modern media. He covered-up for the communists then in the same way the media fawn over and defend George Soros and the Marxist causes he finances now.

Predictably, such “journalism” caused some Washington Republicans, such as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, to back away from supporting Marjorie Taylor Greene. They refuse to take on the media when they target, misquote, and falsely brand members of their own political party.

President Trump understands what’s going on, even if McCarthy doesn’t. With his presidency on the line, he has to know he can’t back down now. His opponent isn’t Joe Biden or Kamala Harris. It’s Soros.

Trump Thwarts Pelosi’s Pot Pushers

By: Cliff Kincaid

Using emergency authority granted to him by Congress, President Trump on Saturday issued four China virus relief executive orders to benefit taxpayers, students, renters, and homeowners. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got in the way of this assistance because her “Heroes” bill that she insisted on passing through the  Senate would have made heroes out of dope dealers and stoners and other clients of the marijuana industry. In a masterstroke, the president bypassed her.

The controversy demonstrates the priorities of the House Speaker, whose son, Paul Pelosi Jr., ran a marijuana legalization company called Freedom Leaf Inc. He left the company in 2018, after speaking of “the powerful benefits of cannabis,” and made several transactions involving company stock. (The company relaunched in 2019 as GL Brands).

At the time that Freedom Leaf named Paul Pelosi Jr. as chairman of the board, the company highlighted the fact that he “is the son of U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.” Pelosi was Minority Leader at the time and became Speaker when the Democrats took control of the House in 2018. A Congressional Cannabis [Marijuana] Caucus was formed to provide the façade of bipartisan support for getting stoned. But she was unable to deliver to Big Marijuana, mostly because of opposition from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans.

The so-called “HEROES” bill, which stands for Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act, had an astounding 68 references to cannabis. It even directed that money be used in minority communities so that marijuana businesses can more easily distribute their dope to people of color.

Pelosi was taking a stand, in the name of “values,” by demanding that the federal government help the marijuana industry, in addition to passing mail-in voting schemes to benefit Democrats.

With his executive orders, Trump stopped Pelosi’s gambit by extending direct relief to victims of coronavirus and avoiding federal payments to an industry that is making money by getting people high and more vulnerable to death from coronavirus.

In protesting the so-called HEROES bill, Senate Majority Leader McConnell had said that Pelosi was “agitating for strange, new special interest carve-outs for the marijuana industry and even claiming they are COVID-related.” In regard to the latest “negotiations,” McConnell commented, “She said that, with respect to this virus, marijuana is ‘a therapy that has proven successful.’ You can’t make this up.” McConnell added, “I hope she shares her breakthrough with Dr. Fauci.”

McConnell, of course, was mocking Pelosi’s advocacy of dope as a medical treatment to make people well. Common sense is that inhaling marijuana smoke with mind-altering THC can only worsen the symptoms of the China virus, which strikes the lungs in many cases. A group of anti-drug experts warned that coronavirus harms are severely elevated by marijuana use and signed a statement asking health care professionals to examine in a scientific manner the likely connection between coming down with the China virus and smoking dope.

In terms of lies, Pelosi’s statement about marijuana being a successful therapy was a whopper with serious health consequences and actually risked the lives of Americans.

Some of our media, in a rare development, fact-checked her. After the news conference where she claimed that marijuana “is a therapy that has proven successful,” USA Today noted that she “did not cite any studies or health officials that have said cannabis may be a treatment for the coronavirus.” That’s because there are none. The Washington Times commented, “Mrs. Pelosi did not offer any evidence to corroborate her claim, and no published studies have proven that marijuana is effective at treating COVID-19, the contagious disease caused by the novel coronavirus.”

President Trump got the message from his negotiators that Pelosi was adamant about pot’s supposed health benefits and decided to bypass her with a series of four executive orders on China virus relief assistance.

Pelosi is a big loser, but so is George Soros, the big financial backer of dope legalization who has major influence over the Democratic Party and its policies. Roger Morgan’s new book, Soros: Orchestrating America’s Demise, explains the strategy.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues pushing. “Marijuana should be legalized,” she declared, “and drug consumption should be decriminalized. These are matters of public health.”

Since this has nothing to do with benefiting “public health,” and actually harms public health, what is this all about? One answer is campaign contributions for Democrats (and some Republicans) from the marijuana industry and their pot shops, which have remained open in many states during the pandemic. Another factor is that millions of stoners, drawn from the millennial generation, may turn out to vote for politicians who promise easy access to marijuana. They will vote for legal weed and then demand government help when their mental faculties deteriorate.

Consider the fact that, according to government statistics, 22.2 million people have used marijuana in the past month. They are a potential major voting bloc.

Not surprisingly, the Washington Post is out with a long story defending the hedge fund billionaire, George Soros, and another article casting doubt on President Trump’s executive actions on China virus relief. In the past, it has argued that drug tests threaten privacy and that employers should stop screening for marijuana. This is typical of a paper whose liberalism has degenerated into toxic paranoia, a characteristic of an alternative lifestyle not based on objective reality. Clearly, drug tests are needed at the paper.  Owner Jeff Bezos should order them immediately and set an example by taking the first test himself.

In the name of the public’s right to know, the paper whose slogan is “Democracy dies in darkness” should then release the results.

The Otherworldly Powers of Darkness, Cults, and Sexual Deviancy in Politics

By: Cliff Kincaid

Citizens for Free Speech is drawing attention to Big Tech censorship of a group of medical experts called America’s Frontline Doctors. But it’s really not the advocacy of hydroxychloroquine by Dr. Stella Immanuel that is the big controversy. She is under attack by the Washington Post and other papers for stating her belief that there are demonic anti-Christian forces in the world today.

The Post, in 2016, dismissed reports that there was a secret link between the Clinton campaign and Satan worship revealed by a Wikileaks email. The reference in the email was to a performance artist “known for her often controversial and dangerous performances,” including a “Spirit Cooking” installation “where the recipes were written on walls in blood.” The Post said. “It might not be everyone’s taste in art, and the footage documenting that 1997 installation is potentially disturbing, but it’s still art.”

Other members of the “mainstream media” joined the chorus, saying it was just a fun dinner and that reports to the contrary were “conspiracy theories.”

But the Post’s longtime religion reporter and Washington insider,  elite party planner Sally Quinn, admitted in her book Finding Magic to her belief in the occult, including casting spells on her enemies, reading Tarot cards, and using Ouija Boards. Quinn was married to longtime Post executive editor Ben Bradlee, who once said about the media’s exploitation of the so-called Iran-Contra affair, in an effort to bring down Republican Ronald Reagan’s presidency, “We haven’t had this much fun since Watergate.”

Watergate was the scandal involving “Deep Throat,” an alleged FBI insider, that brought down Republican President Richard Nixon, leading to the American military withdrawal from Vietnam and Southeast Asia, as millions died at the hands of the communists. It turned out that Bradlee’s Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein was a “red diaper baby,” the child of Communist Party parents. Nixon, as a Congressman, had played a role in exposing State Department employee and United Nations founder Alger Hiss as a Soviet agent. The left never forgave him for that.

In the midst of the current effort to bring down another Republican president, Donald J. Trump, many Christians do see a spiritual war. But another taboo subject that involves both major political parties is the fact that Harry Hay, the founder of the modern homosexual rights movement, was a Marxist atheist who tried to find spirituality in his own confused sexual identity and eventually developed the idea that he was a “Radical Faerie” who had male and female traits. A member of the Communist Party USA who wore a dress, he was a supporter of the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA).

Hay in 1979 issued a call for a “Spiritual Conference for Radical Faeries” that included a poem from the notorious occultist Aleister Crowley. Stuart Timmons, author of The Trouble With Harry Hay, documents Hay’s involvement with Crowley, noting that Hay played the organ for the Los Angeles lodge of Crowley’s Order of the Eastern Temple, a “notorious anti-Christian spiritual group” where “homosexual sex-magic rituals” took place. Crowley regarded himself as the “Beast 666,” the anti-Christ, and the incarnation of Satan.

Speaking of cults, Daniel Flynn, author of Cult City, has explained how the Democratic Party machine in San Francisco that included communist “preacher” Jim Jones ultimately resulted in the “revolutionary suicide” of 900 people in a commune in Guyana in 1978. Ignoring all of this, Rep. Nancy Pelosi later praised one of Jones’ main supporters, Dr. Carlton Goodlett, as a civil rights activist. FBI documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request reveal the Soviet communist connections of Carlton Goodlett and his political influence in San Francisco.

The way things are going in America, statues of George Washington will be taken down and replaced by those of Harvey Milk, a major figure in the homosexual movement in San Francisco who was murdered by a disgruntled co-worker. Milk was a “gay” man in his 30s who had had a sexual relationship with at least one underage boy. In 2016, Barack Hussein Obama’s Navy Secretary Ray Mabus announced that a Navy ship would be built and named after Harvey Milk.

Stuart Milk accepted on behalf of his uncle the highest civilian honor, the Medal of Freedom, from Obama in 2009. Photos show him posing with Obama and Joe Biden.

A Harvey Milk sculpture can be found at the San Francisco City Hall.

The “San Francisco Democrats” utilized the political skills of communist preacher Jim Jones and homosexual activist Harvey Milk to identify and mobilize the weak, poor, sexually confused, and vulnerable for Marxist revolutionary purposes. The remnants of the Jones-Milk apparatus facilitated California’s leftward drift and have been expanded to other states.

Consider Arizona Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema, the first announced self-proclaimed bisexual senator who was photographed criticizing American foreign policy in a pink tutu, clothing associated with a Marxist group called Code Pink. The Washington Post hailed her election, calling her a former Mormon who was the first person sent to Congress to claim no religion. She refused to take her oath of office on a Holy Bible and recently appeared on the Senate floor wearing what appeared to be a blue wig.

In 2018, the same year Sinema won, radical leftist Democrat Keith Ellison, the Muslim former Congressman, and associate of Louis Farrakhan, won the race for Attorney General in Minnesota, after allegations of abuse from an ex-girlfriend. The Nation of Islam believes white people were created by a scientist named Yakub and constitute an inferior race.

Barack Hussein Obama’s relationship with Farrakhan was covered-up through his 8 years of office, only to surface publicly in 2018 when an old 2005 photograph of Obama and Farrakhan together was finally published.

On the national level, based on the way the Maoist cultural revolution is proceeding, an effort will be made to turn George Washington into a homosexual (like they have tried to do with Abraham Lincoln, with the gay Republican group called the Log Cabin Republicans sponsoring a “Spirit of Lincoln” dinner.) Indeed, the famous painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware is now being sold by MAD magazine as Washington Cross-Dressing the Delaware. This was supposed to be funny.

Elsewhere in the humor magazine, in a look at recycled ad slogans, the old Marine slogan, “We’re looking for a few good men,” became the slogan for Grindr, the gay dating app owned by a Chinese company.

But this isn’t so funny. A reported 3.6 million people were using Grindr and their personal information, including HIV status and last HIV testing date, was compromised. The Chinese reportedly sold the company but only after acquiring the personal information of millions of gays and other individuals for possible us in Jeffrey Epstein-style blackmail schemes. In a secretive deal, it was reportedly sold for $620 million to an investor group also with ties to China.

That is truly strange.

In his July 7 speech, “The Threat Posed by the Chinese Government and the Chinese Communist Party to the Economic and National Security of the United States,” FBI Director Christopher Wray said, “If you are an American adult, it is more likely than not that China has stolen your personal data.” He referred to China’s hacking of Equifax, noting how they “made off with the sensitive personal information of 150 million Americans,” and how, in 2014, “China’s hackers stole more than 21 million records from OPM, the federal government’s Office of Personnel Management.”

But he did not mention the use of Grindr by the Chinese. Perhaps this is because gays occupy top positions in the FBI. In fact, the FBI celebrated June as Pride Month for LGBTs and an official image showed Lady Justice in rainbow garb.

The Office of Director of National Intelligence features the rainbow colors and an interview with President Trump’s former Ambassador to Germany and Director of National Intelligence (DNI), Richard Grenell, a former member of Log Cabin Republicans. Grenell says he is now​ working with Stuart Milk of the Harvey Milk Foundation to launch homosexual “decriminalization” campaigns targeting for destruction the Judeo-Christian standards of foreign countries.

When Trump’s former gay Director of National Intelligence is working with somebody who got an award from Obama for gay activism, you know that Trump’s top people have no real understanding of the sinister and powerful political forces they are up against.

Some members of Trump’s conservative Christian base are worried.

Merritt Corrigan, deputy White House liaison at the U.S. Agency for International Development, was so upset with this campaign of homosexual imperialism that she left the agency and blew the whistle in an interview to National File, saying,  “The Department of Defense has refused to sell military equipment – needed in order to combat ISIS and other extremist groups – to certain countries in Africa because they did not have gay marriage. The State Department has attempted to enforce similar ideological conformity in Central American countries who wanted to cooperate with the US on immigration issues, but didn’t want to change their culture to fit the radical left’s social agenda.”

On Twitter, she said, “The United States is losing ground in the battle to garner influence through humanitarian aid because we now refuse to help countries who don’t celebrate sexual deviancy.”

As I noted back when Grenell launched this campaign for sexual deviancy at the United Nations, “…if Trump is pressured to embrace a global ‘right’ to homosexuality, it could not only further undermine his support among conservative Christians, but turn out to be a moral catastrophe for America and the world.”

Obama, China, and The Great Reset

By: Cliff Kincaid

In a 2007 address titled, “Rethinking the History and Future of the Communist Party,” the eminent left-wing historian Gerald Horne made two very important observations about what would take place in our country and world. First, he predicted the rise of Barack Hussein Obama and identified his mentor, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis. This was before Obama was elected to his first term. Then Horne predicted the rise of Communist China.

The outcome looks ominous. The establishment journal Foreign Affairs is out with an article that carries the title, “Beware the Guns of August — in Asia.” The author, Kevin Rudd, a former Prime Minister of Australia, says, “The once unthinkable outcome — actual armed conflict between the United States and China — now appears possible for the first time since the end of the Korean War.”

China’s rise was made possible by Obama. After eight years in office, Obama visited with Chinese dictator Xi in China, in a meeting of “veteran cadres,” or communist officials, discussing current events. “Xi made a positive appraisal of Obama’s efforts in promoting China-U.S. relations during his presidency,” said the Chinse press. It was more evidence, if we needed any, that Obama was a Marxist mole doing the bidding of China while he was in office.

The China virus now provides the springboard for what Obama and now Joe Biden are calling the “transformation” of the United States. Fear of the virus is driving many to accept this version of socialism in America. Trump has not been able to dispel the fear and has 90 days to turn around the perception that he has lost control of events.

If Trump does not succeed, plans will proceed on what globalists at the Rockefeller Foundation, Brookings Institution, World Economic Forum, and IMF are calling “The Great Reset,” a new term for achieving a United Nations-dominated New World Order.

The Plan

Regarding the future president, Barack Hussein Obama, Horne had said back in 2007, “At some point in the future, a teacher will add to her syllabus Barack’s memoir and instruct her students to read it alongside Frank Marshall Davis’ equally affecting memoir, ‘Living the Blues’ and when that day comes, I’m sure a future student will not only examine critically the Frankenstein monsters that US imperialism created in order to subdue Communist parties but will also be moved to come to this historic and wonderful archive in order to gain insight on what has befallen this complex and intriguing planet on which we reside.” He was speaking at the reception of the Communist Party USA archives at the Tamiment Library at New York University.

What Horne was predicting was not only the Obama presidency but the victory of communism in America – and the world.

But the media were not interested. Even the Drudge Report rejected my paid ads about the Obama-Davis relationship. The fix was in.

Obama, who served two presidential terms, is back in the news, using a John Lewis memorial service to raise the stakes in the political crisis. He suggested a Democratic Party takeover of the presidency and the Congress with changes to Senate rules, leading to statehood for Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., and the packing of the Supreme Court with more liberal justices.

But with the release of the China virus, what Horne had to say about Communist China back in 2007 is worth reviewing.

Kissinger’s China Ploy Backfires

Horne quoted former New York Times columnist William Safire as saying before Richard Nixon died, that his “opening” to Mao’s China might backfire. “Before Nixon died,” Safire said, “I asked him – on the record – if perhaps we had gone a bit overboard on selling the American public on the political benefits of increased trade with China. That old realist, who had played the China card to exploit the split in the Communist world, replied with some sadness, that he was not as hopeful as he had once been: ‘We may have created a Frankenstein [monster],’ said Nixon.”

Horne understood that all the talk about conflict and divisions in the communist world, including the “collapse” of the Soviet Union, did not slow the advance of communism. Horne said that Nixon, thinking he was exploiting a split in the communist world between Moscow and Beijing, “exchanged one Communist antagonist in Moscow for a far larger, far stronger Communist antagonist in Beijing. Future dictionaries may well illustrate the definition of the phrase ‘Pyrrhic victory’ with a picture of Nixon’s trip to Beijing in 1972.”

All of this is true beyond doubt, as we see in the current headlines.

The idea that the Red Chinese were potential allies was sold by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger under President Nixon and adopted by our intelligence agencies. It was carried forward during the Clinton, Bush, and Obama Administrations and resulted in decades of cooperation with China, even in medical research.

A 1965 communist Chinese publication, “The Polemic on the General Line of the International Communist Movement,” was based on the perceived “differences” between the Chinese and Soviet Communist parties. These differences were real in the mind of a communist, since they always preach and practice ideological “struggle,” but irrelevant in terms of their ultimate goal. This is why former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev would still, in the midst of glasnost and perestroika, declare his goal to be the ultimate triumph of world communism.

The Marxist Dialectic

Our 2015 book, The Sword of Revolution and the Communist Apocalypse, features an interview with a former U.S. intelligence agency official who explained how the Sino-Soviet split, a development in the strategy known as Marxist dialectics, deceived U.S. policymakers and weakened the Free World. His perspective was a dissenting view in the CIA and intelligence community bureaucracy.

Chinese Red Army Commander Lin Biao called Marxist dialectics, the communist ideology of struggle and deception, a spiritual atom bomb, far superior to the real thing. Lenin called it the living soul of Marxism. It was evident in the so-called Sino-Soviet split, under which world communism still remained the ultimate goal.

Unleashing the coronavirus and then claiming to be the world’s savior from it is an example of Marxist dialectics.

Gerald Horne’s 2008 book, Blows Against Empire, includes a chapter on China that has always excited the communists. They understood that China’s goal was always world domination, a fact just recently confirmed by FBI Director Christopher Wray but known for decades to anyone with a rudimentary understanding of communism.

In the Communist Party USA newspaper. Norman Markowitz reviewed the Horne book and wrote that China is too big and too strong to be the target of a “containment/encirclement” strategy, as was the case with the Soviet Union. He wrote, “Horne deals with a world in which the U.S. government and military are constantly frustrated by China’s refusal to toe its line, constantly seeking to make its rise anything but peaceful, China works with Iran and Venezuela. China maintains friendly relations with North Korea. While China is presented by U.S. media as an economic and potential military threat, the U.S. can’t really mobilize an economic and military bloc against it in Asia or globally, although it continues to try.”

In his 2008 article, Markowitz predicted that the U.S. would not be able to mobilize an ideological “holy war” against China because of China’s economic progress, power, and wealth.

At this point, according to the “official” statistics, the China virus has infected about 4.7 million Americans and killed more than 157,000. Equally important, government actions at the federal, state and local levels have decimated the American economy and thrown tens of millions of people out of work. With “The Great Reset,” the power grab goes global, with China taking advantage of the crisis it created.

On foreign policy, freedom in Hong Kong has been lost. The State Department seems preoccupied with China’s claims to the South China sea but it’s doubtful that the American people would support a war with China over these claims.

“Is Taiwan the next Hong Kong,” many are asking.

Increasingly, China looks like a Red Dragon gobbling up the world.

But the U.S. also has advantages, as noted by analyst J.R. Nyquist, such as arable land and considerable food exports, while a Department of Homeland Security report indicates that China is likely unable to replace U.S. soybean exports needed for meat consumption. Nyquist discusses these trends in the context of what is called the solar minimum, a cyclical weakening of the Sun’s electromagnetic field that results in changes in earth’s weather, including a shortened growing season and a significant decrease in world food production in countries like China.

This makes America, the leading food exporting country, a strategic and tempting target for communist control.

For Immediate Release: The Truth About John Lewis

By: Cliff Kincaid

Contact: Cliff Kincaid, [email protected]

The media claim, “John Lewis leaves behind a powerful legacy of social justice.” In fact, he called President Trump a Russian agent when he, Lewis, worshipped a Russian agent — communist Stalinist Paul Robeson. Lewis betrayed the cause of civil rights when he praised identified Communist Party USA member Paul Robeson. Learn the truth through Cliff Kincaid’s interview with Charles Moscowitz. Read the Kincaid article, censored by most of the media, about this, “From One Plantation to Another: The Tainted Red Legacy of John Lewis.”

The Tainted Red Legacy of John Lewis

By: Cliff Kincaid

The late Congressman John Lewis will lie in state at the Capitol, “an honor that has been bestowed upon only a few dozen American politicians since the practice began in 1852,” notes Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire. This publication, and countless others, describe Lewis as a civil rights icon, especially because of his participation in the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, known as “Bloody Sunday.” But they ignore his public praise for the black communist Paul Robeson, the actor, and singer whose fatal flaws included membership in the Moscow-funded Communist Party, love for Soviet mass murderer Joseph Stalin, and support for the Hitler-Stalin Pact that paved the way for World War II.

President Trump’s “Proclamation on the Death of John Lewis” ordered that “the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff” on various federal properties in his honor.

But does Lewis deserve it?

A politician who had a flirtation with a top Nazi or a figure sympathetic to Nazi Germany would never be accorded such an honor. Yet Lewis heaped much praise on Robeson, (1898-1976), who lied about his membership in the Moscow-funded Communist Party USA (CPUSA), in order to deceive fellow blacks about his real intentions.

Although he avoided confirmation of party membership, his record was clear from his activities, statements, and travels to Russia. A communist to his core, despite being raised in a religious family, he took advantage of the many opportunities America offered to him, including graduating from Rutgers University and Columbia University Law School, and then using his talents to express his love for Soviet Russia and its murderous dictator. He charged America with genocide.

Indeed, Robeson said American blacks would never go to war against Russia because blacks loved Russia so much. The actual statement was, “It is unthinkable that American Negroes could go to war on behalf of those who have oppressed us for generations against the Soviet Union, which in one generation has raised our people to the full dignity of mankind.” Robeson was accused by patriotic whites and blacks of inciting treason with this statement but he never backed away from it.

For his part, Lewis lent his name to Freedomways, a journal financed by communist money from China and the Soviet Union and channeled through the Communist Party USA. All of this was set forth in revelations about SOLO, an FBI operation that infiltrated the Communist Party USA and documented its relationship with the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

Lewis, chair of SNCC, the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee, gave a speech, also published in the form of a 1965 Freedomways article, about Robeson being an “inspirer of youth” and leaving a legacy of “spiritual children,” such as Lewis himself. With pride, Lewis said about Robeson, “He talked and listened to the representatives of the Communist Party.”

Freedomways called Robeson “the great forerunner,” a reference to the path he set for American blacks to follow.

In what can be called the real Russia-gate scandal, the path that was taken by Robeson and his “spiritual children” was based on the Communist Party USA illegally receiving millions of dollars from Moscow in order to stir up racial animosity in the U.S. and create a “Soviet America.”

Years later, Lewis would suddenly find the Russians to be so odious and obnoxious that he would accuse them of supporting Donald J. Trump in the 2016 election. Of course, these charges were based on the phony Trump Russia dossier peddled for partisan purposes by Hillary and the FBI and other U.S. intelligence agencies.

Lewis told Chuck Todd of NBC News, “I don’t see this President-elect [Donald J. Trump] as a legitimate president. I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.”

This is the real John Lewis — a partisan Democrat to the end who never disavowed his praise for Paul Robeson and helped make the admirer of Stalin into a hero to black youth.

“We loved America so dearly we were ready to die for her” was one of the patriotic statements attributed to Lewis. By contrast, Lewis hero Paul Robeson and black CPUSA leader William Patterson submitted a “We Charge Genocide” petition against the United States to the United Nations in 1951. Lewis had to know this when he paid tribute to Robeson. His knowledge of Robeson’s service to the Soviet Union was evident in Lewis’s reference to Robeson seeking advice from the CPUSA.

It was John Lewis who coauthored and sponsored the legislation that created the federally-funded Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). Interestingly, it includes an item, “Paul Robeson: An American Communist,” created by the CPUSA and written by party chairman Gus Hall, confirming Robeson’s CPUSA membership.  The identity of Comrade Robeson, Hall said, was with a “socialist USA and the Communist movement.” He was not able to declare his party membership openly, Hall claimed, because of the “extreme repression” of the anti-communism of that period.

Asked by various official committees about his party membership, Robeson would either lie or cite the Fifth Amendment. He took advantage of America’s constitutional protections when it was in his interest to do so.

Today, the CPUSA is out in the open, after having endorsed Barack Hussein Obama for two presidential terms and issuing statements through social media platforms such as Facebook in support of such figures as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It is strongly opposed to Trump and his re-election.

By appearing at the Freedomways event to pay tribute to Robeson, Lewis helped make communism acceptable in the black community. It is a terrible blot on his record that must be remembered as the American flag is lowered to half-staff in his honor. The passing of John Lewis is indeed a tragedy but his legacy, including public praise of the communist liar Robeson, is in a way a tragedy, too.

It’s sad to say, but Lewis actually set back the cause of civil rights by incorporating support for a communist figure and his ideology into a great and noble cause. Lewis’s devotion to “non-violence” was tainted by his praise for Robeson, a Soviet agent, and stooge. He doesn’t deserve America’s accolades.

John Lewis and the “Spiritual Children” of Communism

By: Cliff Kincaid

President Trump is running out of time to save his presidency. The last thing he wants to do is go down in history as the last Republican president, followed by a socialist one-party state. But these are the stakes, as he replaces his campaign manager, a move that reflects his desperation as the November 3 election approaches.

The Washington Examiner says this effectively means that Trump’s liberal son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is in charge. The paper said, “The president’s senior adviser and son-in-law have attracted the ire of the more conservative wings and the Bannonite, America First cadre of the Trump coalition. They believe he has dragged the president into more liberal positions — pushing through criminal justice reform, for example — while failing to understand the base of ‘deplorables’ who elected Trump in 2016.”

Kushner was a former business partner with George Soros and brought “former” communist Van Jones into the White House to work on “criminal justice reform” and “police reform.” Jones, who had been deeply involved in a Marxist group, Standing Together To Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), had resigned under fire from his White House job in the Obama Administration.

The new “official” Trump campaign manager is Bill Stepien, whose dubious credentials include serving as the national director for John McCain’s failed 2008 presidential campaign. McCain lost to Barack Hussein Obama because he failed to expose Obama’s Marxist and Muslim sympathies.

Joe Biden’s handlers, including Obama, are growing more radical, now proposing to abolish “shareholder capitalism” and “transform” the nation. Analyst Kevin Freeman says about Biden’s call for transformation, an echo of what Obama promised, that “It is a full-on dog-whistle of intention for progressive leftists (aka Marxist Revolutionaries).” He adds, “This is not a mindless statement from a benign old man facing dementia. This is the sole and entire purpose of the left and the intent goes far beyond simply minor course corrections in policy.”

This is the kind of analysis that Trump needs to hear. But many are skeptical that Kushner or Stepien will provide it – or that Trump will act on it. Some cite Trump’s reluctance to fire Dr. Anthony Fauci for his contradictory, misleading, and deadly advice about the coronavirus.

How the China virus has become a vehicle for socialism has been revealed by the South African Communist Party, in the new issue of their journal, African Communist, in an article about exercising total government control over peoples’ lives. The title is, “We welcome decisive state power on Covid-19!”

The South African Communists, who rule South Africa through a coalition government led by the African National Congress, make some important observations, such as that the coronavirus gives the state the ability “to restrict travel and other personal freedoms, and still receive widespread social support…”

Under these circumstances, the communists argue, state power can be used to intervene actively in other areas of human life, such as taking direct ownership of various industries.

Here, the virus provides the springboard for what Obama and now Biden are calling the “transformation” of the United States and what is articulated in the “Biden-Sanders Unity Taskforce Recommendations.” It’s an open alliance with socialists and communists, the same kind of coalition ruling South Africa today.  Not surprisingly, former CPUSA official Angela Davis says she’s backing Biden because he “can be most effectively pressured” by the left. (Interestingly, she made these statements on Russia Today television).

She explained, “Biden is far more likely to take mass [i.e. communist] demands seriously — far more likely — than the current occupant of the White House.” She added, “…we will have to campaign for and vote for Biden.”

At this critical point in history, it’s important to understand how and why John Lewis is being transformed into a “civil rights icon,” even by conservative pundits, and what this means for the election campaign.

Although his civil rights activism gets the attention, he came under the influence of revolutionary forces when he wrote a 1965 article for the publication Freedomways that was entitled, “Paul Robeson: Inspirer of Youth.” It was about the famous black actor and singer who had been a member of the Communist Party USA and admirer of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

“He [Robeson] talked and listened to the representatives of the Communist Party,” wrote Lewis, then national chairman of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). “In many ways,” he wrote, “we of SNCC are Paul Robeson’s spiritual children.”

Freedomways, which was influential in the black community for decades, was subsidized by the Soviet and Chinese Communist Parties.

Former CPUSA official Manning Johnson testified in 1949 that he saw Robeson “a number of times in the headquarters” of the CPUSA and that Robeson was, in fact, a party member. Johnson said Robeson wanted to be “the Black Stalin among Negroes.” Johnson testified, “Paul’s assignment was to work among the intellectuals, the professionals, and artists that the party was seeking to penetrate and influence along Communist lines.”

Freedomways, the communists, and their fellow-travelers continued to make inroads in the black community.

It was Lewis, citing bogus claims of Russian interference in the 2016 election, who said that he didn’t see the election of Donald Trump to be “legitimate” and that he would be skipping the presidential inauguration. Before that, Lewis and his Congressional Black Caucus colleagues had claimed in 2010 the N-word had been “shouted” at him by Tea Party members when no camera recorded anything of the sort. Andrew Breitbart had promised $100,000 to anyone who could prove the epithets had been used.

Until Trump and his aides are ready to tell the complete truth about those posing as crusaders for “social justice,” we will not fully understand how black Americans are being deceived and manipulated into being shock troops for the communist revolution now underway in America.

A Conservative Senator with Guts

By: Cliff Kincaid

This is a story of two women. One, Senator Kelly Loeffler of Georgia, denounced Black Lives Matter (BLM) as the Marxist organization it is. The other woman, Louise Radnofsky, a sports reporter for the Wall Street Journal, deceived her readers about the Marxist political agenda of Black Lives Matter, calling the group “decentralized.” This claim was then picked up by left-wing groups to defend BLM and attack Loeffler.

In fact, BLM is a group that honors convicted cop-killer, Assata Shakur, now living in Communist Cuba. A video shows a BLM co-founder admitting, “We are trained Marxists.”

Marxists are trained not to solve problems but to exploit them, on the road to socialism and communism. They were prepared when George Floyd died. Our cites were still burning when the BLM’s call to defund the police resulted in more black lives being lost as gun violence rose in those same cities.

BLM is in the forefront of a Maoist cultural revolution that few Republican Senators, except for Loeffler, seem to grasp.

Journalists distort the truth all the time. But Radnofsky works for a paper that carries a “conservative” reputation. That makes this case of media distortion and omission significant.

Her story was about Senator Loeffler, a part-owner of the WNBA team, the Atlanta Dream, objecting to the league glorifying the BLM movement on team uniforms. She appeared on Fox News and Newsmax TV to denounce the group’s “Marxist principles.”

While other “conservative” Senators were proposing to replace Columbus Day with Juneteenth or to handcuff the police through more lawsuits, Loeffler took on the BLM directly. This is the kind of tough woman Trump needs on the ticket with him to salvage his campaign. Women need to know that BLM is not a group that deserves sympathy but scorn for dividing America along racial lines.

Here’s what Radnofsky wrote about BLM:

“Black Lives Matter is a decentralized political movement. Leaders of its official chapters, and throngs of loosely affiliated backers, generally support reallocating police funds to social programs, as well as other overhauls of police department oversight, discipline, and practices; many others have also pushed for departments to be completely abolished.”

In fact, BLM’s proposed destruction of “the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure” follows the dictates of the book, The Origin of the Family, Private Property, and the State, by Karl Marx comrade Friedrich Engels. The Marxists regard the family structure of husband, wife, and children to be a construct of capitalism and in need of complete overthrow. Hence, BLM also affirms “trans” rights, letting men become women, and vice versa. This is DNA denial.

Those interested in restoring the black family in America would be interested in that fact.

The BLM tribute to the terrorist Shakur is one thing. But the Capital Research Center notes that Susan Rosenberg, a board member of Thousand Currents — the group fiscally sponsoring the most organized part of the Black Lives Matter movement, the BLM Global Network Foundation — is a former convicted terrorist. The group posts links to the supporting documents.  The Rosenberg connection helps make the case that BLM is not only Marxist but pro-terrorist.

Radnofsky failed to do the elementary research required of a journalist upholding minimal standards of basic journalism. Perhaps she was afraid to report the facts because she would be criticized for doing so. This reflects the power of what former New York Times journalist Bari Weiss calls the mob-dictated dominant ideology in journalism today.

According to the Journal, this stand against BLM has “made Loeffler an outlier in the sports world, where leagues and franchises have rushed to embrace the antiracist movement in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.”

Loeffler spoke out against the Marxist values of the BLM and suggested that basketball players and everyone unite as Americans behind the American flag — a global symbol of freedom. Her radical proposal was to put a small American flag on the uniforms of WNBA players to show unity.

This has made her an “outlier.” Nonsense.

Of course, the term, “antiracist,” as used by Radnofsky, is deliberately false. The group’s focus on saving the lives of one race of people is itself racist by definition. It is also Marxist and anti-family.

Official factions of the BLM have also been accused of anti-Semitism but never disavowed. Indeed, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has thanked Loeffler for condemning BLM’s anti-Semitism. They said, “ZOA calls on all patriots and people of good conscience to join Sen. Loeffler in calling out the Black Lives Matter political organization for its Jew-hatred and its anti-Israel activities and associations, as well as it’s call to defund police and abolish prisons and the US military, as well as its call to end the nuclear family and asking young children to choose their own gender.”

Radnofsky’s bio says she has a master’s from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

The Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism was founded by Joseph Pulitzer (1847–1911), a famous newspaper publisher. “Our Republic and its press will rise or fall together,” Pulitzer wrote, on a plaque inside the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism building. “An able, disinterested, public-spirited press, with trained intelligence to know the right and courage to do it, can preserve that public virtue without which popular government is a sham and a mockery. A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will produce in time a people as base as itself. The power to mold the future of the Republic will be in the hands of the journalists of future generations.”

Today, it produces journalists who are not living up to his high aspirations. Sadly, this is typical.

To understand how journalism has been “fundamentally transformed,” please read this report, “Saving the World For Socialism: How Soviet Dupe and Fellow Traveler Curtis MacDougall Trained Today’s ‘Progressive’ Journalists.” MacDougall conceived “interpretative reporting,” the name of his textbook, and drove many young journalists to embrace this far-left worldview.

The report is based in part on my own experience in journalism. I saw it from the inside. Senator Loeffler is a victim but is standing up to it.

Get Ready for the “Rainbow Nation” of America

By: Cliff Kincaid

It’s “Nelson Mandela International Day,” designated as such by the United Nations, on July 18. Look for Nelson Mandela statues to be erected in place of George Washington. (There’s already one at the U.N.). But in the same way the founding of the U.N. by communist spy Alger Hiss is routinely ignored, we will not be told that Mandela was exposed as a member of the South African Communist Party and that whites are now fleeing the workers’ paradise he created.

Meanwhile, Barack Hussein Obama’s former Ambassador to South Africa, Patrick Gaspard, who is now the president of the Open Society Foundations of George Soros, has announced a staggering grant of $220 million for black power movements, “placing a bet on their ability to carry today’s momentum toward a better tomorrow.” That’s on top of the admitted $15.2 billon the billionaire hedge fund operator has already provided to various Marxist and “progressive” forces.

Conservatives have focused on the amount of money rather than the credentials of the strategist. It is significant that Patrick Gaspard was Obama’s Ambassador to South Africa, already considered a “Rainbow Nation” where communists rule. A member of Obama’s inner circle, he had served as Director of the White House Office of Political Affairs, the executive director of the Democratic National Committee, the national political director for Obama for America in 2008, and lobbyist for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

Gaspard was confirmed as Ambassador to South Africa by the Senate on August 1, 2013, in a voice vote with no dissent. He served as the U.S. ambassador to South Africa until 2016.

As an eyewitness to what is happening in South Africa, Gaspard understands how a communist regime can take power through the democratic process.  Of course, the communist government there is attracting and exploiting the votes of the majority black population. Whites are facing discrimination and fleeing, being persecuted, and/or being killed. In the U.S., at least for the time being, whites are still a majority.

The key to the Soros/Gaspard strategy is to shame enough whites into joining the communist coalition.  These are the “progressive whites” caught up in the George Floyd protests. Through one of the most skillful propaganda campaigns ever launched, the cops in the Floyd case were portrayed as cold-blooded killers when in fact they were confronted with a career criminal high on drugs who was foaming at the mouth and resisting arrest. Evidence in the case, as I document in the column, “The Lies Behind the George Floyd Case,” exonerates the police of the horrendous charges of murder and aiding murder that has been made against them.

The article, “Mandela and Communism,” from the Communist People’s World newspaper, is very important in this context. It was about the South African president Nelson Mandela, exposed as a member of the South African Communist Party after his death, and compares him to Barack Hussein Obama, who concealed his relationship with Communist Party USA figure and mentor Frank Marshall Davis.

Published on December 13, 2013, after Obama’s election to a second term, author Rick Nagin said communist revolutions go through various stages and that, in the U.S., the “Democratic parts of the ruling class” were “still very much needed” for communism to succeed here. Nagin, a veteran Communist Party official, urged support for President Obama and “the Obama coalition,” in order to prevent division in the ranks of the progressives. He said to “win at this stage we need to emulate the steadfastness and political maturity shown by Mandela and the South African Communist Party.”

Obama delivered the 16th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture at the Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg, July 17, 2018, and said, “I believe in Nelson Mandela’s vision.” He wrote the foreword to the 2010 book, Nelson: Conversations with Myself, by Mandela.

Obama’s key ally in Congress was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “I think Nancy Pelosi, when the history is written, will go down as one of the most effective legislative leaders that this country’s ever seen,” Obama said.

In this context, the name of Dr. Carlton Goodlett is significant. A communist associate of the Peoples Temple cult leader Jim Jones, whose more than 900 followers committed “revolutionary suicide” in Guyana in 1978, Goodlett was a Lenin Peace Prize winner and a central figure in the Democratic Party in San Francisco. Incredibly, there is a street in San Francisco, Dr. Carlton B Goodlett Place, named after this communist, where City Hall is located. House Speaker Representative Nancy Pelosi praised Goodlett after his death as a civil rights leader.

Pelosi, of course, is still running the House, while Obama is officially out of office.

President Trump’s real opponent isn’t Joe Biden, but Obama, who operates mostly behind the scenes. Gaspard understands that as long as Trump continues to talk about Biden, rather than Soros and Obama, the strategy to create a “Rainbow Nation” in America may succeed.

“Obama’s victory was more than a progressive move; it was a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle,” wrote Marxist activist Frank Chapman, a leading member of the pro-China Freedom Road Socialist Organization who recently showed up in Minneapolis to join the protests. “Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface,” he said. “This is the old revolutionary ‘mole,’ not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through.”

Obama and Gaspard provide the brains, Soros gives them money, and Chapman and their comrades are the cannon fodder for the street revolution. Biden is their frontman.

The Lies Behind the George Floyd Case

By: Cliff Kincaid

The George Floyd riots that resulted in $500 million worth of damage to Minneapolis were based on a lie. With more evidence now available, one possible verdict is that the drugs in his system contributed to his death, as he was out of control and resisted arrest.

Transcripts of police body camera recordings of the confrontation demonstrate that George Floyd, the so-called “gentle giant,” was foaming at the mouth and so out of control that the police had no alternative but to pin him down with a knee to the neck, an acceptable police procedure when a suspect goes berserk.  A legal memorandum in the case, seeking dismissal of the charges, was filed by an attorney for one of the officers and incorporates the facts from the body cameras:  “Floyd had just committed a felony, he was not being cooperative, and appeared to be under the influence of drugs. There was a lengthy struggle to get 6 foot four, 223 pound Floyd into the car.” (Other reports put Floyd’s height at 6 foot six or seven). He was 46 years old.

With new evidence showing the police acted properly, the charges could be dismissed. If they are not, we can anticipate not-guilty verdicts in a fair trial that will be exploited to further feed the fires of racial animosity in the hands of the Black Lives Matter agitators. Or else the trial will be rigged and police will be framed for crimes they didn’t commit, in order to tamp down the potential for more riots.

These are the stakes as the new evidence has emerged, throwing into doubt the charges of murder and aiding murder filed against the four police officers.

A video snippet of the last part of the encounter, the knee on the neck, is what became the excuse for the riots and the current national hysteria over “Black Lives Matter,” whose name conceals a Marxist political agenda that aims to leave Americans defenseless as police departments are defunded. The liberal governor of Minnesota, Tim Walz, has imposed draconian restrictions on the movements of ordinary people but failed to protect Minneapolis when it was burning and a police headquarters was abandoned and ransacked. The federal government has rejected his request for a financial bailout.

In a sensitive case like this, at the time of the incident, there was a need for deliberation and calm. But people jumped to erroneous conclusions, in the same way that the Michael Brown “Hands up, don’t shoot” case out of Ferguson, Missouri, turned out to be a case of a young black man high on pot reaching for a police officer’s gun and getting shot and killed in the process.

The George Floyd case became the second go-round for the national effort to ignite a race war in America. It is working, thanks to commentators and politicians who jumped on the anti-police bandwagon. This time, “Hands up, don’t shoot,” has been replaced by “I can’t breathe.” But an objective observer could conclude that he couldn’t breathe because of too many drugs in his system and his delirium when facing arrest. (Floyd family attorney Ben Crump says the presence of drugs in his system when he died is a “red herring” designed to draw attention away from the police conduct).

Regarding the kneeling on Floyd by one officer, after futile efforts were made to get Floyd into the police car, that particular neck restraint was used and “was something taught to officers.” It says that based on Floyd’s actions up to that point, “the officers had no idea what he would do next – hurt himself, hurt the officers, flee, or anything else, but he was not cooperating.” What’s more, it says the force used by officer Derek Chauvin by kneeling was not substantial, in that “there were no physical findings of asphyxia.”

In other words, contrary to what most media have reported, he was not strangled to death by the knee to his neck. The knee was not responsible for his inability to breathe. That was caused by the drugs and his own uncontrollable behavior, as he worked himself into a frenzy. At one point, an officer asks Floyd about foam around his mouth, and he replies, “I was just hooping earlier.” This is a possible reference to taking illegal psychoactive drugs through the rectum. He may have been overdosing, which can cause foaming at the mouth. Or he could have been referring to something else.

What people did not see in the video released to the public was that Floyd, after passing the bad bill, was first spotted in a car “digging underneath the seat, as if reaching for something.” It could have been a gun, drugs, counterfeit bills, or something else. The officers attempted to get Floyd into the squad car and told him multiple times to take a seat. He was said to have repeatedly kicked at the officers.

“Floyd does not take a seat and starts saying he is going to die,” the memo says.  As the strange behavior continues, one officer says, “he’s got to be on something.” Floyd “started to thrash back and forth” and “was hitting his face on the glass in the squad [car] and began to bleed from his mouth.” He got out of the car and officers “ended up bringing Floyd to the ground after the struggle to get him in the car because Floyd was out of control.” One officer finds a pipe, a smoking device for illegal drugs. “He’s got to be on something,” the officer observes. Another sees his eyes shaking, probably a reference to the rapid quivering of the pupils, another sign of drug abuse.

The manager of the store where Floyd passed the funny money concluded that Floyd and his friends seemed “high off stuff.”

During the melee, the police called for an ambulance. They understood Floyd was in a drug-induced state and needed help. But he died before he could be revived.

People could have mourned the tragic death of Floyd, without the anti-police hysteria that resulted in riots and disturbances in major cities. These have now expanded from “police reform” into demands for America’s founding fathers to be demonized and statues of them destroyed. One death, which we now know was caused by extensive drug use, ignited all of this. It sparked a carefully-planned Maoist cultural revolution that includes calls to destroy pictures and statues of “white Jesus.”

Conservatives contributed to this madness, as Sean Hannity of Fox News and politicians such as Senator Ted Cruz immediately condemned the police handling of the incident without waiting to get all the facts. Republican Senator Mitt Romney actually marched with Black Lives Matter in Washington, D.C.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh went so far as to conduct an “exchange” with the black radio host, “Charlamagne Tha God,” to see if black-white racial harmony could be achieved in light of what the police had done to Floyd. The exchange was a disaster. Dialogue was not what they were looking for. They wanted white apologies over “white privilege” and police charged with murder and aiding murder.

Soon after the incident, another video snippet surfaced, appearing to show Floyd scuffling with police in the police car, but few waited for the facts behind that part of the confrontation, either. Now we know he resisted arrest in a drug-induced rage. Then, an autopsy showing Floyd’s heavy drug use and the facts about his criminal record were conveniently overlooked to keep the anti-police narrative going.

“What is not being told is the violent criminal history of George Floyd. The media will not air this,” said Minneapolis police union president Bob Kroll at the time. He was dismissed, however, as just an apologist for members of his union and the officers he represents. Some called for him to go because he dared to highlight some damaging truths about Floyd, including his four years in prison for aggravated robbery.

In summary, the new evidence shows that George Floyd was being arrested for a legitimate reason, passing counterfeit money, but behaving erratically and was perceived to be high on drugs. His blood tests found evidence of marijuana, fentanyl, and methamphetamine. He was difficult to calm down, apparently because of the drug use, and kept claiming that he couldn’t breathe, a possible sign of hyperventilation caused by the drugs.

But now that exculpatory evidence for the officers has emerged, the judge in the case, Peter Cahill, has imposed a gag order on the attorneys for the police.
