Biden Ends Combat Operations in Iraq, Except we Already Did

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

In part from Reuters:

(Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden and Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi on Monday sealed an agreement formally ending the U.S. combat mission in Iraq by the end of 2021, more than 18 years after U.S. troops were sent to the country.

Coupled with Biden’s withdrawal of the last American forces in Afghanistan by the end of August, the Democratic president is completing U.S. combat missions in the two wars that then-President George W. Bush began under his watch.

Biden and Kadhimi met in the Oval Office for their first face-to-face talks as part of a strategic dialogue between the United States and Iraq.

“Our role in Iraq will be … to be available, to continue to train, to assist, to help and to deal with ISIS as it arises, but we’re not going to be, by the end of the year, in a combat mission,” Biden told reporters as he and Kadhimi met.

There are currently 2,500 U.S. troops in Iraq focusing on countering the remnants of Islamic State. The U.S. role in Iraq will shift entirely to training and advising the Iraqi military to defend itself.

The shift is not expected to have a major impact since the United States has already moved toward focusing on training Iraqi forces.

The real truth?

The Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhemi on Monday in his first meeting with the weakened leader, whose loyalties are precariously split between the US ally and pro-Iran factions at home.

At the heart of the meeting will be the presence of US troops in Iraq and more broadly, whether Baghdad has what it takes to stand up to residual Islamic State jihadist group cells within the country’s borders.

More Evidence Leaked from China on the Deliberate Release of COVID-19 by the Chinese Military

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) | CCNS

The following information was provided by a source inside China who has knowledge of the circumstances and has been vetted.

COVID-19 was created in a laboratory by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and fine-tuned as a bioweapon.

It was specifically designed to be highly contagious, but often asymptomatic, have low lethality, but produce uncontrollable variants and possessing characteristics providing plausible deniability as a bioweapon.

According to Chinese military doctrine, such bioweapons are used prior to a declaration of war for political or international strategic needs, where the use of which can be denied. The intent (underlined) being:

\Even if the academic evidence, virological evidence, and animal experiment data could possibly prove (that the virus comes from the lab), we can just deny it, stop (investigation), suppress (scholars), make sure the international organizations and honest people’s work is futile.”

A fully formed sample of COVID-19 was ready for testing in early 2019, while a parallel vaccine program was underway.

Scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology were chosen to participate in non-human primate (monkeys) transmission testing, simulated coronavirus release and response exercises such as at Wuhan’s Tianhe airport in September 2019 and an actual test release of COVID-19 at the 2019 Military World Games from October 18–27, 2019.

The source mentioned special health screenings at the Military Games, perhaps as a means of monitoring the results of a small, short-term test release of COVID-19.

Generals, veterans, and citizens issue petition accusing Sec of Defense Austin of violating his oath to the US Constitution

By: Carol Greenwald | CCNS

The Committee to Support and Defend has initiated a petition to the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to “honor his oath” to “support and defend” the Constitution of the United States.  The petition “respectfully insists” that Austin immediately countermand orders he has issued since taking office that have eroded military cohesion and readiness.  The petition argues that Critical Race Theory is a toxic Marxist ideology with anti-constitutional objectives.  Ordering its teaching in the military endangers America’s national security, in contravention to Austin’s oath to protect and defend the Constitution and the United States from all enemies.

The petition is the third scathing criticism of the Biden administration’s policies that retired generals and admirals and other military veterans have issued in recent weeks, citing concerns over national security and the dangers to our liberties.  In an unprecedented action, over 200 retired generals and admirals issued a letter in May that stated that the United States is facing the “greatest danger to our constitutional Republic since 1776.”  The letter stated that our nation is in “deep peril” as we fight the supporters of Marxism who are opposed to our constitutional freedoms and liberties. Last week, the Committee to Support and Defend, led by LTC Allen West (ret.), issued a letter signed by over 1,000 military veterans that stated that as veterans, they are still morally and ethically bound to protect our Constitution and country.  They wrote:

As such, we put our nation’s leadership on notice. We believe that the hard left turn toward Socialism and Marxism endangers our citizens and the future of this great nation…We are disgusted by the dismantling of the rule of law in our great country. We never thought we would see the return to Vietnam-style disdain for public service. Unfortunately, this disregard and disrespect is corrosive and will lead to dangerous situations for citizens and law enforcement.

UFOs, the Great Reset, the New Age, and the Messiah

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

Gerard Aartsen, a Dutch academic and independent researcher, discusses the spiritual dimension of the UFO phenomena, including whether the Roman Catholic Pope encountered visitors “(Sons of God”) from space. His most recent book, Pioneers of Oneness, argues that visitors from space are friendly and will usher in a period of peace and justice, during which a “world teacher” or new “Messiah” will communicate with the world telepathically. Host Cliff Kincaid raises Christian concerns about his approach.


Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley is No George Washington

George Washington, the father of our country, warned against many different threats to America. Of utmost importance at the time, he warned of the Illuminati, a subversive force that infiltrated the Masonic lodges of Europe and which today is the subject of what the media call “conspiracy theories.” But it was a real organization, and Washington knew it. He wrote about it in several letters to clergymen.

Washington was a member of a Masonic Lodge in Virginia who was also a Christian and he made sure those dangerous tendencies in the Masonic lodges of Europe were excluded from the structures of the new nation.

What’s important to know is that Washington acknowledged the existence of evil forces that could undermine the American experiment. He was not only a great general, who led our military forces to victory, but was aware of evil ideologies that undermined the Christian morality he depended on for guidance.

Responding to a letter from a citizen, Washington declared: “It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am.” But he insisted that “none of the [Masonic] Lodges in this Country are contaminated with the principles ascribed to the Society of the Illuminati.” He made it one of his purposes in the life of the young nation to make sure America didn’t turn out like Europe.

The impact of the Illuminati has become a bogeyman for Catholics, some of whom think George Washington was somehow tainted by his membership in a Virginia lodge. They cite the opposition of the Catholic Church to Freemasonry. What they don’t understand is the major break which occurred between the lodges in Europe and America. Washington personified that break.

These Catholics tend to believe in the kind of state church that the American revolutionaries fought to depose. That’s why so few Catholics were among the founders. They also find it objectionable that Thomas Jefferson, who wrote the Declaration of Independence, put together the “Jefferson Bible” of the moral teachings of Jesus Christ and excluded references to his divine nature. This was Jefferson’s way of trying to reach Americans of different religions with a moral message that could unite them.

Our founders looked for ways to unite Americans of different faiths and outlooks behind the American nation. It worked. It was a great success.

What Catholics and non-Catholics alike have to realize is that our founders, most of whom were Masons, objected to a state church based in England or the Vatican in Rome. In that sense, they were humanist or even secular. They wrote into the Constitution a ban on a religious test for public office. They believed passionately in religious liberty.

China’s Biowarfare Program Involved in the Origin of COVID-19 Is Linked to Its Military Yet It Accesses Knowledge, Skills and Funding from the US

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) and Anna Chen | CCNS

China’s biowarfare program has three levels.

There is a core secret military level consisting of military research centers and hospitals.

The core layer is supervised by the Academy of Military Medical Sciences in coordination with so-called “civilian” entities such as the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and the Chinese Centers for Disease Control.

Layered on top of the core level are China’s universities, civilian research institutions, and medical companies.

Everyone should understand that, in China, there is no difference between military and civilian research.

The fusion of those research and development sectors was mandated by the 2016 Chinese Communist Party’s Thirteenth Five-Year Plan.

It is that middle layer, which has allowed China to access international knowledge, skills, and funding, particularly from the United States, all of which have contributed to the advancement of China’s virus research, including bioweapons development.

In an April 20, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, we highlighted the important contributions of veterinary and agricultural scientists to China’s biowarfare program.

Here we document connections within that core military level, how it links to the middle layer of Chinese universities and research institutes and how that middle layer establishes research collaboration with U.S.-based scientists to access U.S. knowledge, skills, and research funding, which has benefitted China’s biowarfare program.

As stated in our May 14, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, the Military Veterinary Research Institute and the Institute of Zoonotic Diseases in Changchun, Jilin Province, China, led by People’s Liberation Army General Ningyi Jin and retired General Xianzhu Xia, are core military elements of China’s biowarfare program.

The Military Veterinary Research Institute and the Institute of Zoonotic Diseases in Changchun directly coordinate with the Academy of Military Medical Sciences in Beijing. It acts as a clearinghouse and a manager of military-related activities in China’s universities and civilian research centers. It has also led a virus-collection program as well as conducting its own research, especially in regard to mammalian and non-human primate experiments on viruses and vaccines.

As described in our May 18, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, at least four subordinates of Xianzhu Xia and Ningyi Jin have been engaged in a massive domestic and international virus collection effort for over eight years, namely, Biao He, Quanshui Fan, Changchun Tu, and Zhiqiang Wu.

Biao He, together with Changjun Wang of the People’s Liberation Army Eastern Theater Command in Nanjing, played key roles in the isolation of bat coronaviruses ZC45 and ZXC21, claimed by Chinese whistleblower Dr. Li-Meng Yan to be the viral backbones for COVID-19.

We believe that the Military Veterinary Research Institute and the Institute of Zoonotic Diseases in Changchun were deeply involved in the research that led to the creation of the COVID-19 virus.

EXCLUSIVE: Clinton Administration Invited the Chinese Army into Sensitive U.S. Military Biodefense Centers

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) and Anna Chen| CCNS

The deeper we dig, the worse it gets.

The infiltration of critical Department of Defense and related civilian research programs by Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and People’s Liberation Army (PLA) scientists began in the 1990s.

The infestation is now extensive.

Some returned to China with the most advanced knowledge and techniques, but many are still in the United States funded by U.S. taxpayers.

This column was originally published at The Gateway Pundit

The following is only the tip of the iceberg.

Some of those invited into U.S. military facilities, like Liang-Ming Liu and Dai-Zhi Peng were clearly identified as PLA officers, other CCP scientists and PLA officers hid their backgrounds.

But no one in the Clinton Administration bothered to check.

Jing-Ning Huan, aka Jing-Ning Xun, lists his educational institution as the Shanghai Second Medical University. It is actually the Second Military Medical University of the People’s Liberation Army.

Jing-Ning Huan eventually landed in the laboratory of Dr. Allan Z. Zhou at the University of Pittsburgh. We do not know the full background of Dr. Zhou, but he has since returned to China at the School of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Guangdong University of Technology.

Outside View: Specter of Tuskegee Returns

By: Rand H. Fishbein, Ph.D. | CCNS

Editor’s Note: This article was originally published in 2005 by CCNS member, Rand H. Fishbein, Ph.D.

It has been more than 70 years since the U.S. Public Health Service began its study into the effects of syphilis on 399 human test subjects — all of them black, all of them poor and most of them illiterate. When the infamous Tuskegee experiments finally came to light in 1972, the public, at last, learned the horrible truth.

The men in the Tuskegee study were never told they had syphilis, nor were they told the real purpose behind their participation in the experiment. Worse, they were systematically denied treatments that would have eased their suffering. In the annals of U.S. medical history, the Tuskegee experiments have become synonymous with ethical misconduct at its worst. The federal government assured the public that malpractice of this sort would never happen again. Sadly, however, it has.

Beginning in 1997, a team of researchers from The Johns Hopkins University, generously sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, conducted a clinical trial of the drug nevirapine in Uganda. Known as HIVNET 012, the researchers sought to prove that the anti-retroviral drug was safe and effective in preventing the transmission of the deadly AIDS virus from pregnant mothers to their newborn babies. According to the NIH, approximately 800,000 children worldwide became infected with the human immunodeficiency virus — the organism that causes AIDS — through mother-to-child transmission in 2002.

In 1999, the researchers published their findings: One dose of the drug nevirapine, given to a mother shortly before delivery, and once to her newborn, significantly reduced the incidence of HIV transmission to the child. The World Health Organization affirmed its support of this simple and inexpensive regimen. The medical community quickly adopted nevirapine as the drug of choice for pregnant HIV-infected women in resource-poor countries.

Yet, as with the Tuskegee experiments, something went horribly wrong. In 2002, an audit of the HIVNET 012 trial raised questions about the validity of the study data. According to independent auditors, medical records of study participants could not support the published results, and numerous violations of the study protocol occurred without written explanation.

China has Infiltrated the U.S. Military Biodefense Program at Fort Detrick

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) and Anna Chen | CCNS

The shocking story of how China has infiltrated the U.S. military biodefense program at Fort Detrick.

Chunying Hua, spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, has promoted the conspiracy theory that Fort Detrick is the origin of the COVID-19 virus.

Although such a claim is patently ridiculous, there may be a kernel of truth in it, given how much knowledge and skills may have been obtained by Chinese scientists working in Fort Detrick’s virus laboratories.

Make no mistake, the Chinese military is clearly “inside the wire.”

It is important to recognize the fact that, in China, there is no distinction between civilian and military research.

Although unofficial before then, the Chinese Communist Party declared the fusion of civilian and military research as an official goal in its 2016 Thirteenth Five-Year Plan.

It is also a fact that, more often than not, scientists born and trained in the People’s Republic of China (PRC), even after becoming U.S. citizens, never completely sever links with their home universities and research institutions, many of which are connected to the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) at Fort Detrick has long been an espionage target of the PLA.

The PLA’s pathway to that target has been through the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, which is inside Fort Detrick, only a few minute’s walk from USAMRIID.

Democrats Cancel Duty, Honor, Country

BY: Ray DiLorenzo | CCNS

While the Pentagon has approved gender reassignment surgery for active-duty personnel, Communist China is planning to invade Taiwan. While Iran resumes nuclear enrichment, our troops are getting diversity training

The Democrat’s cancel culture has reached our revered institution, the military. After the 2016 election, the Democrats made a covenant with Hell to never lose another election. They ‘won’ the 2020 election by fraud and deceit, and when they assumed power, they began to transform Washington, our institutions, especially our military culture into their image, void of loyalty, morals, virtue, and honor. They are working as quickly as possible before the general public wakes up. Diehard older Democrats continue to lie to themselves as they have for so many years, thinking they won for JFK, for equality, for strong leadership with restraint. Our military is quickly becoming a political tool of Marxist socialists

Our military is quickly becoming a political tool of Marxist socialists, and not even competent Marxists. The Democrats now think of the military as their personal security force. A trip to our Capitol will convince you. They openly seem determined to destroy the discipline, purpose, and cohesion of our armed forces.

The top priority of the new Biden administration was to appoint a black defense secretary. Comes Lloyd Austin, a sub-standard four-star general that reeked of failure to counter ISIS when he was in charge of U.S. Central Command with responsibility for Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. In 2015, newly confirmed Defense Secretary, Ash Carter, flew to Kuwait to shake the trees to find out what is going wrong. After meeting with the generals, Carter concluded that Austin had no workable plan. When Austin met privately with Carter, the secretary was stunned at Austin’s plan to retake Mosul, using Iraqi troops that didn’t exist. Austin learned that having the job was infinitely more satisfying than doing the job.

President-Elect Biden, in appointing Austin, lauded Austin’s performance in withdrawing from Iraq, not for any battles won, mind you. Biden, unknowingly, was pointing out Austin’s forte.
