Ending the Chinese Communist Party – The CCP

By: Retired General Paul Vallely | CCNS

Operation Nemesis 11.0

Retribution against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)

Plan XI.  Global Awakening Movement to END the CCP

The merciful Creator has always been watching over mankind. Disasters occur when man betrays the divine, and humanity can be saved only by returning to our divinely bestowed heritage…Today, whether or not humanity will walk this path is the choice that faces us all. ”
– How the Specter of Communism Is Ruling Our World

 Time to End the Demon CCP

 On June 23, the New York-based Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP boldly launched an on-line petition (www.EndCCP.com): Eliminate the Demon Chinese Communist Party. The petition reads:

This pandemic could have been prevented if the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) did not lie. Yet, ever since it took over China, hundreds of millions of people have been suffering from its endless deceptions and brutality. The demon CCP has plundered the ancient land of China, and now its terror has spread globally, affecting everyone. It is time for all of us to reject the devil’s work and put an end to the Chinese Communist Party!”

The website lists a series of crimes made by the CCP, including suppression of Chinese and Hong Kong people, infiltration and manipulation of the west, deliberate spread of the Coronavirus, etc., and calls for people to wake up to end this tyranny.

On June 26, Rong Yi, Chairwoman of the Center, told the media about this global movement at a crucial time. She explained that the wicked CCP is the root cause of the chaos and disasters in the world today. Unfortunately, the free world has ignored it for too long, allowing it to infiltrate deeply into societies. The center is aimed at helping people around the world to recognize the evil nature of the CCP and at the same time give people the opportunity to make a choice to renounce it. Pointing out that this pandemic is targeting the CCP (which is anti-God, anti-universe, anti-all religions, and anti-humanity) and its allies, Rong emphasized, “People from all over the world shall make a call from their hearts to end the CCP. This will earn them blessings from the divine. It is believed that the world is anxiously looking forward to the end of the CCP.”

On June 23, a new documentary titled “Manipulating America: the Chinese Communist Playbook” was released by the New Tang Dynasty TV, an independent Chinese TV station headquartered in New York.  This investigative film reveals how the CCP has manipulated American politicians, public and educational institutions using covert soft-power, including “Grand Overseas Propaganda”, bribery, Confucius Institutes, and Sister-Cities. This is an invisible war raging throughout the world. It is not a war fought with bullets and guns, but a war fought with manipulation briefed the film introduction.  The release of this film shows the world has reached a new level of discernment on the CCP.

Rong did not reveal much about how her center will carry out this vital global movement, but we could probably get some clues by taking a close look at the center.

Grassroots Movement of Quitting the CCP

Founded in June 2005, Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP has helped over 350 million Chinese people to renounce the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations. It fostered an unprecedented peaceful movement for transformation and change in communist China. This grassroots movement accounts for the largest one in today’s world.  The Center has operated steadily for 15 years. This June there are over 50,000 Chinese people renouncing the CCP on the center’s Chinese website every day.

The Birth

In November 2004, the book Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was published online. This is the first book that provides a systematic account of CCP’s grave brutality and mass deceits for over half a century.  The book quickly became viral online. The shocking truth presented in the book has awakened Chinese leaders. After discerning the evil nature of the CCP, many desired to publicly quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations such as CCP’s Young Pioneers (6-12 yr.) and CCP’s Youth League (12-20 yr).  Hence, the Global Service Center of Quitting the CCP was born in Flushing, – the new Chinatown of New York City.  According to the center’s website (en.tuidang.org),

“At its very core, Quitting the CCP goes beyond political activism; it is the process of Chinese people clearing their conscience of years of Party culture indoctrinated in them through revolutionary campaigns, propaganda, media censorship, imprisonment, and mass killings over the past 65 years. It finally gives Chinese people a chance to reflect on their own lives without the CCP and to envision a free China.”

Spread by Word of Mouth

The Global Service Center of Quitting CCP is composed of many volunteers who assist any Chinese person with membership or its affiliated organizations to publicly renounce their ties with the CCP.

Although CCP membership accounts for roughly 8% of the Chinese population, almost everyone who grew up in Communist China is mandated to join Young Pioneers (red scarf) or Youth League to prove their loyalty to the party. On joining, children and teens are ordered to vow,   “I love the Communist Party of China, the motherland, and the people; I will study well and keep myself fit; preparing to contribute my entire life to the cause of communism.”

Therefore, the movement offers an opportunity to almost everyone who grew up in Communist China to denounce the evil party. The grassroots movement relies on volunteers to bring people with the truth.  For many Chinese, traveling outside of the country is the only opportunity to break away from the information censorship. The volunteers outside of China set up booths at tourist spots to hand out pamphlets to mainlanders or ask some thought-provoking questions to start what they call “truth-clarification” conversations.  They also use phone banks to call or text message their fellow Chinese in China.  In China, there are many courageous volunteers (many are Falun Gong practitioners), who risk their lives to bring truthful information to their fellow citizens.  All the volunteers are all motivated by one belief that no one shall be deceived by the evil; and only truth will set people free.

Like peeling an onion, the volunteers patiently peel lies fabricated by the communist regime for the past 70 years, to one individual, one family, or one group at a time. The snowball effect is significant. In many cases, people would thank them with teary eyes, recruit more people to come to listen or accept whatever materials to share with more people.

There are many tools or sources contributing to the growth of this movement. Independent media such as Sound of Hope Radio, New Tang Dynasty TV, Epoch Times (Chinese version); software such as Freegate to help internet users bypass China’s Great Firewall. All serve as various enabling platforms for the movement to reach people in China, far and wide.

The CCP has brought countless disasters to Chinese people and now its terror has spread to the rest of the world.  Through this pandemic, the world is coming to realize the true nature of the CCP. As more and more people become awakened in the world, it is imperative for us to unite behind this unprecedented movement that is peacefully bringing down the CCP from within.

We Were Soldiers

By: Garry L. Hamilton

Typical of Day One Chemo, sleeping is a losing battle. So I figured, why not a movie?

We Were Soldiers.

I watched it. Gritted my teeth. Wept.

And I wept for Joe. It hit me when he was overwhelmed by freshly showered, wide-eyed, “grown-up” emo journo clowns, stepping off the Sikorsky in a now-safe LZ with questions like “how does it feel?” and various inappropriately loaded questions. And all he could do was stare at them.

And I grasped one of the fundamentals of PTSD watching Hal Moore exhort him to tell the story and confessing his subjective guilt.

And I realized that, of all the war movies I’ve watched, two stand out as “PTSD inducing in the perceptive viewer” class of movie. Yeah, there are others, but two stand out.

The other, for me, is Saving Private Ryan.

They’re messy, shocking, unrelenting, emotionally wrenching, ultimately heroic, but with a horrific price.

The first involves people my own age. I relate way too well to them. They are the reason I did my best to sign up for something non-combat and not over there. And I understood how the active fight against communism (as a general vector, and as the actual foe in real life), while won in numbers on the ground in open combat, was lost to the embedded communists in our own society who succeeded in turning our own culture against our own soldiers, ultimately losing a war the soldiers had actually won.

It brought home my own petty “survivor’s guilt” (yes, something experienced when meeting in person those who did the fighting and the dying, realizing that I was little more than a dabbler in a life and death context) but allowed me to realize that the drive to survive is not a sin, especially when the conflict is largely a politically contrived one. Still, that’s hard to shake if you can’t bring yourself to examine it as raw fact.

The other matter is the punchline of Saving Private Ryan: “Earn this.”

Yes, it was a demand by an individual to an individual, but it can also be the exhortation of those who paid the ultimate price to those of use who would inherit the victory.

And the question one may then ask is, “have we earned it?” Followed by, “are we willing to earn it again, on our own soil if need be?”

We’re the survivors. What we have was bought by our fathers and grandfathers.

Are we willing to forfeit what they bought, accepting the sophomoric sophistry that somehow, by accepting this staggeringly expensive gift, we are de facto unworthy because [insert badly constructed Marxist argument here], and [additional Marxist slogans here] because it’s impolite to respond resolutely (and with violence if needed) against the gleeful, carefully engineered violence perpetrated against us, the heirs of those victories against the tyrannies of the moment?

Can we that easily be persuaded by specious argument that we “don’t deserve” that gift?

Is it really that easy to accept that we should just “hand it over” to the latest band of thugs simply because the thugs in question happen to have staged the battle on our own soil?

The fact that they’ve spent 60 years and billions of dollars building up to this point, infiltrating education and achieving through subterfuge what they could not through a frontal attack, does that legitimize their claim to the prosperity we built in the wake of those conflicts? Simply by slandering us all with ridiculous and entirely false accusations? By hard-selling the specious argument for “the [imaginary] sins of the father …” and therefore those of us who have committed no crime somehow owe a debt to those who have had no crime committed against them?

Against this kind of wholesale dishonesty and targeted violence, are we really ready to roll over and just give the bully what he wants?

Really?

Did we earn it?

Or didn’t our progenitors pay enough?

Yes, I know there’s a carefully constructed network of laws that, ironically, can be construed to favor the criminal in this matter, but eventually it will boil down to our cultural ethic and morality and confronting the idea that we can be fenced out of our freedoms and liberties by a tangle of lawyerly contrivances.

Have we become this soft? Are we really no longer worthy?

David Burge (Iowahawk) observed, some time back, something I call “the skin suit proposition,” to wit:

1. Target a respected institution,
2. Kill & clean it,
3. Wear it as a skin suit, while demanding respect.

And the targeted, respected institution has become the American culture as a whole.

In his observation, “kill” is metaphorical.

The metaphor is no longer the shield it was. It has morphed into a more literal proposition.

Where is the threshold? At what point do we reach the cultural equivalent of “fearing for our lives?”

Do we get there while there is still time to act, or when, finally, we are staring up at the barrel of a gun? A real one, not metaphorical?

Flip through a bit of history — the last hundred years should do — before rendering your answer.

And then contemplate, did we earn it? Are we willing to earn it again?

Dear General Mattis and the Other Flag Officers

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

General Mattis, your op-ed in the Atlantic was repugnant. Let’s review what you purposely overlooked, shall we?

Know your Terrain

It’s the leader’s job to interpret and translate the terrain and operating environment. Know whether you are the bear or the alligator. Leaders must understand their organization’s strengths, weaknesses, and ideal operating terrain before stepping into the fight. There is no “unfair” when dealing with an uncontrollable variable like terrain. Read more here from Sun Tzu on terrain.

You see during the Covid-19 lockdown, America was in fear. The fear doubled and confidence has been shattered with rioting, death, arson, and looting. General, you did not offer a solution. But we are learning all the dynamics of the changing terrain in America and it is ugly.

All Enemies Foreign and Domestic

Our rights as citizens are to be protected and the elite members of our Praetorian Guard are designated as politicians at all levels, law enforcement, and the branches of the military. So to you Generals and Admirals, to the politicians and law enforcement, who is protecting selected voices from censorship? What about illegal searches and surveillance where we are to be secure in our person, papers, and effects? What about our ability to fully protect ourselves from home invasions or burning a building or business where the upper floors are actually apartments? We have gangs operating all over the nation, we have subversive groups doing the same. We have an insurgency upon the country and they are domestic enemies to the general welfare of America. What is your solution if not law and order?

Ungoverned Spaces

You are well aware of places like Idlib, Syria, the Sahel, Libya, Donbas, Ukraine, even the South China Sea and the Strait of Hormuz. General, in America there are thousands of points of ungoverned spaces including public schools, streets in San Francisco, the courthouse steps in Portland, Oregon, or the college campus at Berkeley. In recent days, ungoverned spaces included cities and streets across the nation where police are told to take a light touch all while mayors have released violent criminals from prison, and what would be felony arrests are considered misdemeanors, letting go the criminal within hours with a mere $120 ticket. General, have you considered this chaos? Are you applying strategic thinking to frontier justice where decent Americans will be forced into vigilante justice? Syrians were forced into that just as Libyans are. We have to fend for ourselves, you omitted that part. So, to you, Flag Officers, have you a solution war plan to solve this in America?

Domestic Tranquility

While the intent of the Framers intended to quell uprisings and rebellions between states, domestic tranquility is fleeting. When civil society is challenged and criminal behavior goes unpunished, established justice is broken. Peaceful demonstrations are events where the demonstrators put forth their grievances. That is a wonderful and endorsed right. When riots, theft, looting, arson, shootings or otherwise physical harm comes to person or property, law and order are fractured. Placing the National Guard at designated locations is to augment law enforcement. If that fails, a higher more assertive remedy is called for including the consideration of the Insurrection Act. There is not a respectable American that wants conditions to reach that point and that includes President Trump. But just like military personnel in the realm of wargaming operations, all consideration must be on the desk and they are. In the case of the civilian population, leaders and law enforcement too must consider all options for the protection of public safety.

So, General Mattis, you are quoted as saying ‘If you cannot create harmony, even vicious harmony on the battlefield based on trust across service lines, across service lines, across coalition and national lines and across civilian/military lines, you need to go home, because your leadership is obsolete.

That harmony you speak of is lost in America, we are divided. So, General sir… just go home, take the other Flag Officers with you.

We are gonna be ‘polite and professional’ in spite of it all, but we are gonna be the guards of our own terrain, personally and professionally and politely.

Kissinger’s “Red China Gambit” Is Killing America

By: Cliff Kincaid

Journalist Mike Allen’s father, Gary Allen, wrote the great book, Kissinger: The Secret Side of the Secretary of State, describing how Henry Kissinger’s “Red China Gambit”  included the abandonment of the free people of the Republic of China on Taiwan. Kissinger’s power play was based on the false hope that China had abandoned communism.

Gary Allen described the Red Chinese as “unquestionably the bloodiest mass murderers in human history,” adding, “Red China practiced a smiling and beguiling diplomacy toward the West while serving as the world’s major pusher of drugs.”

Things haven’t changed. Today, in addition to the mass murder inflicted on the world by the coronavirus, the Red Chinese are the leading exporters of fentanyl. In addition, Red China backed North Korea’s war of aggression on South Korea. Casualties of the United States during the Korean War included 54,260 dead (of whom 33,665 were battle deaths), 92,134 wounded, and 8,176 listed as missing in action or prisoners of war.

Gary Allen examined how the world and Washington really work. “Gary Allen’s writings conveyed great distrust of the established order,” is how the New York Times put it. “He saw conspiracies in both parties, despised Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger for their internationalism and the ‘establishment media’ for enabling the ‘communist conspiracy.’”

On the other hand, Mike Allen was described in the article as someone with “a boyish and almost star-struck quality toward the assumed order.” He co-founded Axios, launched in January 2017, and based on the belief that “Media is broken, and too often a scam.”

Yet, Axios panders to the elites who have lucrative careers and lord over those who don’t. It was quick to solicit and get a $5 million small business loan under the Paycheck Protection Program designed to save small businesses. Then, under fire, it returned the loan, saying it found “an alternative source of capital.”

Mike’s father encouraged Mike’s involvement in the Boy Scouts, before the Scouts turned gay/trans and admitted girls, and he came out an Eagle Scout. That’s a fine achievement. I went through the same program and became an Eagle Scout, one of the proudest days of my and my father’s life. It taught me many lessons about truth and honesty.

In my view, Mike Allen should lose his schoolboy crush on the elites and subject the establishment to the scrutiny they deserve. He could start with deciphering Henry Kissinger’s April 3 Wall Street Journal column, in which he declares the U.S. must start “the urgent work of planning for a new epoch.” It’s the same New World Order he has been pushing for decades.

Or perhaps he could ask Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian, the China reporter at Axios, to take a look. She has an impressive career, having previously served as a contributing reporter at Foreign Policy magazine, where she wrote about a Beijing-linked billionaire “funding policy research at Washington’s most influential institutions.”

In this very revealing article, she documented how the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) serves as “a registered foreign agent bankrolled by a high-ranking Chinese government official with close ties to a sprawling Chinese Communist Party apparatus that handles influence operations abroad, known as the ‘united front.’” That official is Tung Chee-Hwa, the vice-chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, a government advisory body.

She examined how the CUSEF has “cooperated” on projects with numerous U.S. institutions, including the Brookings Institution, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Atlantic Council, the Center for American Progress, the East-West Institute, the Carter Center, and the Carnegie Endowment for Peace.

Henry Kissinger just happens to serve as an “honorary adviser” to the CUSEF.

Except for the Foreign Policy magazine account and a story from a Taiwan journalist, noting how the Chinese Communist Party has been “covertly funding certain think tanks in Washington D.C.,” I couldn’t find any other serious journalistic treatments of this threat.

That’s odd.

I did find an excellent report, “China’s Overseas United Front Work: Background and Implications for the United States,” on how China uses “United Front” work to neutralize potential opposition to the policies and authority of the Chinese Communist Party. But this, too, failed to receive any significant media attention.

That’s strange.

By the way, the Center for American Progress was founded by John Podesta, the head of Obama’s first transition team who served as counselor to Obama as president (and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman in 2016). It has been supported by foundations or companies associated with such figures as George Soros, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Michael Bloomberg.

Even more importantly, the official Chinese news agency article, “Xi meets Obama, discusses China-U.S. ties,” reveals that, after the election of President Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Obama in Beijing. The British Guardian said that Chinese media “fawned” over Obama and Xi, dubbing the pair “veteran cadres”, a term usually applied to retired Communist officials.

It sounds like a story for Axios reporter Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian. Mike Allen should let her loose on that one. It could lead her back to what President Trump calls Obamagate.

Honoring Their Gift

By: T.F. Stern | Self-Educated American

Gratitude is an interesting human trait.  We say thank you when somebody does something nice for us or gives us a present; but that only touches on the idea of gratitude. How do we express heartfelt gratitude?

I could lead off with the highest level, the gratitude we as individuals show for our Savior, Jesus Christ.  His gift of eternal life to mortal beings truly is incomprehensible so we can only do our best to live a life worthy of such a gift; that’s how we show our gratitude for His sacrifice.

But that’s not where I’m headed this Memorial Day…no, but honoring the sacrifices of those who gave their lives in the battle for liberty, our individual chance to live and breathe while their lives were cut short; that’s something to consider.

I once saw a photograph of a mass burial at sea; sailors who’d lost their lives following a kamikaze attack.  The image of their shipmates carrying out the somber task struck a chord with my soul.  They had little time to morn their friends while the business of war and the ever-present threat required the detail to be carried out in haste.

Recalling a movie, The Man Who Never Was, there are civilians who ‘stepped up to the line’, so to speak.  They served the war effort in ways they never could have considered, some joining the ranks vicariously.

(Image: The Man Who Never Was, courtesy of sgliput.wordpress.com)

The military needed to fool the German hierarchy by supplying them with erroneous information.  The plot was formulated to leave a military courier’s body floating off the coast of Spain where it would be found.  Every detail of the courier’s life would have to be verifiable, right down to having letters from his girlfriend, where he purchased his uniform shirts, tickets to the show he’d last seen, and so on.

“The corpse will appear as a plane crash victim, the non-existent Royal Marine, Major William Martin, who is carrying falsified letters about a forthcoming Allied invasion of German-occupied Greece, rather than the obvious target of Sicily.”

But they needed a corpse who looked like he’d drowned in the ocean, and so they obtained the body of a man who’d died from pneumonia (At least that’s how this was accomplished in the movie.  According to a different historical account the body was likely obtained from a shipwreck off the northern coast of Great Britain).

There was a scene in the movie where the grieving father of the recently deceased individual was asked to donate his son’s body for the war effort.  Instead of being able to bury his son he was being asked to trust the military, that his son would eventually be given a proper funeral.

It’s a wonderfully well-made production of a movie and worth your efforts.

Memorial Day is for the survivors, those who didn’t die in the service of their country.  Sounds a bit strange doesn’t it?  This day is for us to recognize and honor the sacrifices made and try to live worthily as a means of showing gratitude for a gift that’s too hard to understand in its entirety.

When we look at the lessons of life, particularly in the scriptures, we see miniature versions of the big picture and use them to understand the ultimate gift of the Savior’s Atonement.  Abraham being directed to sacrifice his only son being a shadow of the sacrifice of God’s Only Begotten Son teaches us to see the world through His eyes.

So it is with Memorial Day as we consider and honor the gift of liberty from those who never made it home.

The Kill Shot Against Gen. Flynn was Not Russia, it was Iran

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

RussiaGate was concocted. RussiaGate was globally choreographed. But it was never about Russia, the real covert truth and story is Iran.

Lee Smith has confirmed what I knew in my gut to be true. Smith authored titled The Plot Against the President. I read it and Smith was gracious enough to come on my radio show to discuss the book, which you must read. Congressman Devin Nunes knew in his gut the RussiaGate story did not compute either.

A huge high-five to Nunes and Smith and on with the story. It is a long one. Once you sit back and read it all, the clue, tips and indicators begin to fall into place. But we must go back several years for context, patterns, and the cunningness of politicians and power-players.

1. Remember the first set of WikiLeaks cables where it was determined that Hillary had her staff collect as much oppo-research as possible on her adversaries and foreign dignitaries such that she had to go on an apology tour after the cables were published?

2. Remember the scandal that surrounded Sharyl Attkisson and the computer intrusion(s) she experienced during the Obama administration that she is still fighting legally? She too wrote a book titled Stonewalled telling that story.

3. Remember the journalists that collaborated with Edward Snowden, one being Barton Gellman? By the way I have zero use for what Snowden did but there is an interesting part of the story that Gellman tells in The Atlantic magazine. He too was a victim of major computer intrusions perhaps more significant than that of Sharyl Attkisson.

4. Remember when President Obama had to apologize to German Chancellor Merkel and French President Hollande for surveilling their phones?

5. Remember when Eric Holder had to admit he issued subpoenas for journalists’ phone and email records?

6. Remember when the Obama administration ‘scooped-up’ the communications between members of Congress and Israeli leaders during the Iran nuclear deal talks?

7. Remember when CIA Director, John Brennan, spied on Senator Dianne Feinstein staffers working on the torture reports, lied about it and then had to admit it?

8. Remember Operation Cassandra that was shut down completely by the Obama White House? The Former DEA Special Agent on this operation and I have become friends in the last couple of years. This was a global investigation into Hezbollah, narcotics, and used cars. (This too included Bruce Ohr.)

Okay, so the rest of the story. It is a big one but it holds all the truths. Again, a HUGE hat tip to Lee Smith and Devin Nunes.

*** It started in 2009, took off in a big way in 2012, and Oman was the backchannel.

Pensacola NAS Shooter Tied to AQAP

Attorney General William P. Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray Announce Significant Developments in the Investigation of the Naval Air Station Pensacola Shooting

Saudi gunman and at least 3 victims reported dead at NAS ...

Today, Attorney General William P. Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray announced significant developments in the FBI’s investigation of the December 6, 2019 shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola that killed three U.S. sailors and severely wounded eight other Americans.  On January 13, 2020, Attorney General Barr announced that the shooting was an act of terrorism and publicly asked Apple to help the FBI access the locked contents of two iPhones belonging to the deceased terrorist Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani.  The company declined to do so.

Attorney General Barr announced that the FBI recently succeeded in unlocking the phones of Alshamrani, who had attempted to destroy them while launching his attack.  The phones contained important, previously-unknown information that definitively established Alshamrani’s significant ties to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), not only before the attack but before he even arrived in the United States.  The FBI now has a clearer understanding of Alshamrani’s associations and activities in the years, months, and days leading up to the attack.

“Thanks to the great work of the FBI – and no thanks to Apple – we were able to unlock Alshamrani’s phones,” said Attorney General Barr.  “The trove of information found on these phones has proven to be invaluable to this ongoing investigation and critical to the security of the American people.  However, if not for our FBI’s ingenuity, some luck, and hours upon hours of time and resources, this information would have remained undiscovered.  The bottom line: our national security cannot remain in the hands of big corporations who put dollars over lawful access and public safety.  The time has come for a legislative solution.”

“I could not be prouder of the relentless dedication of the men and women at the FBI who worked for months under difficult conditions to access these devices,” said Director Wray.  “Their skill and persistence, and the sustained investigative efforts by FBI Jacksonville, the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, and our many other federal, state, and local partners, have been nothing short of extraordinary in this case.  As we continue to seek answers around the December 6th terrorist attack that killed three American service members and wounded others, I want their families, and all Americans, to know that protecting the United States from those who seek to do us harm remains the FBI’s foremost priority.  Our work against the threat of terrorism never rests.”

Investigators sought and received court authorization to search the contents of Alshamrani’s iPhones within one day of the December 6, 2019, terrorist attack.  Unable to unlock the phones because of their security features, and having exhausted all readily available options, the FBI approached Apple for its assistance in early January 2020.  The company declined to assist.  FBI technical experts succeeded in accessing the phones’ contents over four months after the attack, revealing highly-significant evidence, including:

  • Alshamrani and his AQAP associates communicated using end-to-end encrypted apps, with warrant-proof encryption, deliberately in order to evade law enforcement.
  • Alshamrani’s preparations for terror began years ago.  He had been radicalized by 2015, and having connected and associated with AQAP operatives, joined the Royal Saudi Air Force in order to carry out a “special operation.”
  • In the months before the December 6, 2019 attack, while in the United States, Alshamrani had specific conversations with overseas AQAP associates about plans and tactics.  In fact, he was communicating with AQAP right up until the attack, and conferred with his associates until the night before he undertook the murders.

The evidence derived from Alshamrani’s unlocked phones has already proven useful in protecting the American people.  In particular, a counterterrorism operation targeting AQAP operative Abdullah al-Maliki, one of Alshamrani’s overseas associates, was recently conducted in Yemen.

Response by DoD Secretary Esper:

Today, the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced additional findings about the shooting on Dec. 6, 2019 at Naval Air Station Pensacola. This was a tragic day for our military and our deepest condolences are still with the friends and families of Ensign Joshua Watson, Airman Mohammed Haitham, Airman Cameron Walters, and with the eight others wounded in this terrorist attack.

The new information provided by Director Wray and Attorney General Barr underscores the threats to our nation posed by al-Qa’ida and its affiliates and highlights the necessity of the security measures we take every day to protect the American people, our interests and our friends – as well as those that defend our nation.

”The Department of Defense is incredibly grateful for the diligent work by the FBI team investigating this horrific attack that took the lives of three American patriots,” said Secretary of Defense Dr. Mark. Esper. ”Based on the FBI findings, and in addition to already executed protective measures, the Department will take further prudent and effective measures to safeguard our people.”

In response to this terrorist attack, the Department of Defense took immediate action, ordering a stop to all International Military Student operational training at U.S. installations and directing a review of all vetting and security procedures. In January Secretary Esper went to Pensacola and met with Navy leadership, and with flight training students and first responders to hear first-hand the accounts of those on the scene. Within two weeks of the tragedy, the Secretary approved an extensive list of findings and recommendations and directed immediate implementation across all the military Services. These include additional measures for background checks and new physical security procedures, specifically:

  • New restrictions on IMS possession and use of firearms and ammunition.
  • New control measures for limiting IMS access to military installations and U.S. government facilities.
  • New standards for training and education on detecting and reporting insider threats.
  • Establishment of new vetting procedures that include capabilities for continuous monitoring of IMS while enrolled in U.S.-based training programs.

We continue to work with the FBI as they uncover more information pertaining to the terrorist, his links with al-Qa’ida, and the methods he used to conceal this from us. At the same time, we continue to review our procedures to identify any additional vetting and security measures we can adopt.

Despite this tragic event, our military partnerships and the international military student program remain strong and are a vital component of our National Defense. Security cooperation directly contributes to U.S. national security and foreign policy objectives by helping allies and partners improve their defense capabilities and enhance their ability to participate in missions alongside U.S. forces. We will continue to work closely with them to counter the threats of international terrorism and protect our freedom.

Don’t Worry Over Military-Imposed Vaccinations Just Yet; Be Very Concerned about Communist China

By: Arlen Williams | Gulag Bound

“We’re mobilizing our military, and other forces, but we’re mobilizing our military on the basis that we do have a vaccine. You know it’s a massive job to give administer this vaccine. Our military is now being mobilized so, at the end of the year, we’re going to be able to give it to a lot of people very, very rapidly.” With those words yesterday, President Trump dreadfully alarmed many who are given to alarmism and who would otherwise be some of his most adamant supporters.

 

This, however, is not news. Trump made it clear in mid-March that our military forces were being utilized in all relevant or contingent scenarios. He was speaking of preparation for potentials. There are many concerns to be had, about rapidly prepared vaccinations and the surveillance of our citizenry in the name of tracking either the contagion, or one’s antibody build-up, or whether or not one is a recipient of whichever as yet hypothetical vaccine. We patriots are not fans. But nowhere did the concept of vaccines being made mandatory come into this discussion with Maria Bartiromo.

Why, just last Friday, Trump suggested COVID-19 vaccines will not likely become necessary, even if they do prove adequate for their initial human Guinea pigs.

Simply put, however, the U.S. Military includes the federal government’s best project managers and our best means of carrying out large scale projects. Furthermore, we are in a massive war, so, military.

Here is what should concern us greatly. In the midst of their constant lecturing to the world that globalism must occur and be done their way, the Chinese Communists intentionally spread a biowarfare virus to the world, to demonstrate the point. Brilliant. Yet, so many still kowtow to these, whose face should be lost down the storm drain, to drift to the sewerage treatment plant.

Many of us, by now, understand this despotic regime of China is at war with the U.S. and the Wuhan virus may be only one phase of it, more to come. And COVID-19 is not the first wave of their war crime atrocities. As Cliff Kincade has pointed out, they have been dumping the pandemonium of Fentanyl into America by probably the murderous ton, by now, causing tens of thousands of deaths in addition to widespread debilitation.

Early in his administration, Pres. Trump raised a furor for calling some nations of the world “sh**-holes.” He and we need to understand very clearly that China is led from a hellhole.

Rather than continuing here, about China’s readily apparent war with America and our critical need for that to be demonstrated to our own citizenry and abroad, please see the article from May 7: URGENT: Pray the Schemes of China and U.S. Subversives be Immediately Exposed.”

Click, click, click

Please, also be concerned about nursing home patients. Trump’s COVID-19 Task Force knew full well by early March, of the likelihood of great harm to our elderly in nursing homes nationwide, due to the Washington State catastrophe. But did they focus on that red-light-critical matter? No, they did not. Adequate federal guidelines (or mandates) were not made. Why? Did some of the Obama holdovers in the White House team think it not such a bad idea to kill off the old folks? Remember what Obama said while selling Obamacare in 2009, give grandma a pain pill and let that be it.

Why has this White House team not been focused on quarantining the vulnerable, rather than all the rest of us who need to make money to pay for their care? And where has Vice President Pence been on the nursing home crisis, bless his sleep-deprived soul? Trump and Pence continue to be perplexingly Deep-State-gullible. They can both be excellent strategists and tacticians, but where is the principle, where is the scrutiny, and where, the discernment? A vocabulary word for you, Messrs. Trump and Pence: perspicacity. Please get more, get lots and lots more, and add sufficient doses of skepticism of Democrats. They are just not like us patriotic Americans.

And be concerned, dear reader, about largely Democrat physicians, largely in our major cities, who refuse to prescribe the successful hydroxychloroquine-zinc-antibiotic cocktails to their largely Democrat patients, who then fail to find another doctor, because… they’re Democrats. That may make for better electoral results, but at what point does it become murder by omission?

If you are a fellow Christian, please interpret “be concerned about,” as: pray. For further references, I suggest today’s Globe & Malevolence and I recommend subscribing to it by email, no charge.

Lessons for Liberators

By: Tabitha Korol

“A Little Piece of Ground,” by Elizabeth Laird, is a propagandist book available to all children in many libraries across the country.  It concerns 12-year-old Karim who lives in Ramallah, historically an Arab Christian town, now a Palestinian city in central West Bank (Judea and Samaria), 10 km north of Jerusalem, Israel.  He hears of nothing but violence and aspires to be the Liberator of Palestine. 

***

Karim resides with his parents and three siblings on the fifth floor of an apartment building.  He hates living under the occupation, yet no one has told him that the Israelis ceased its occupation three years before he was born.  He knows that a Palestinian gunman shot two people in an Israeli café two weeks ago and, as a consequence, the next building was demolished.  His building is on lockdown, guarded by an Israeli tank to ensure that no one may enter or leave until further notice.  The residents may not go to work or shop for food, and his school was leveled, the computers confiscated.

More recently, a Palestinian gunman opened fire in Jerusalem, gravely injuring five adults and three children.  Three days later, new curfew hours were announced for his area, allowing two hours for shopping and errands.   That evolved into free daytime hours, but confinement continues from evening through dawn.  Now his father may tend his store and inventory, his mother may take the baby to the doctor, and Karim and Joni meet a new friend, Hopper, with whom to play soccer – until dusk.

Karim’s father does not understand why the children must also be punished or why he can’t tend his store when others committed a crime.  The Palestinians are not remorseful of the killings; Laird writes of no regrets.   There is no family discussion to correct the occupation narrative, to discredit the violence, or confirm the value of life.  An effective way for the Israelis to discourage suicidal crimes is to ruin the homes of terrorists’ families, although Mahmoud Abbas reverses the effect with largesse and new homes to the martyr’s family, appropriated from generous humanitarian aid.

The children hear only of their inconveniences.  Karim’s father curses the Israeli occupation that began when he was ten years old, which actually resulted from his own parents’ pivotal decision.  It was 1948 when the United Nations granted statehood to Israel on a little piece of ground, 1/6th of one percent of Arab land, that had always been inhabited by Jews but ruled by a succession of foreign powers. The Jews accepted the offer, the Arabs rejected it, and five Arab armies set outbut failed – to destroy the new Israeli state.  Some of the Arabs welcomed becoming citizens of Israel; Karim’s ancestors chose to remain in Judea and Samaria, renamed West Bank under Jordan’s 19-year rule.  After years of deadly attacks, the armies again mobilized for a full-scale war against Israel in 1967.  Israel was victorious again and captured Sinai, Gaza and Judea and Samaria (Left Bank), and became a reluctant occupier.  As often as Israel offered a land trade for peace, the Arabs refused.  They are waiting for their failsafe victory over the Jews to fulfill Mohammed’s vision.

Since then, the Arabs renamed themselves Palestinians as a strategic tie to the land, living first under Arafat’s Palestinian government rule that began in 2000, followed by Abbas. Israel is not an occupying force, but its forces will control all who may endanger Israeli citizens, by checkpoints and any means necessary.

During some free time, the family decides to visit their family during the olive-picking season.  On the way, they are redirected to a new road that has been cut through the main road, which is now prohibited to non-Israelis.    Karim and the young readers know only that Palestinians are forbidden to use that road; the author does not explain this as a security measure.  Palestinian youths have been hurling rocks and explosives at passing cars for years, causing accidents and death.  The road is now safer, and the Palestinians may use this new route to their destination.  Karim’s parents view this as another deliberate inconvenience because it increases the driving time.  Further down, they come to a roadblock; Palestinians had been killed and one “settler” wounded, the causes left unexplained.  Adult men are asked to leave the car and made to strip down to their underwear.  Karim hates to see his father ridiculed, hates that the IDF is dominant over his people.  Again, no one clarifies this as a response to a confrontation, or that the term “settler” is used to delegitimize the centuries of the Jewish connection to the land.

At his grandparents’ home, after dining and socializing, the visitors learn that the olives are no longer theirs to harvest.  Palestinians had been hurling firebombs at Jews, and the IDF seized the little piece of ground on the hill and announced its zoning for a new Israeli development.  The construction has begun.  The culprits had been apprehended and imprisoned, but these Arab residents are not peaceful or trustworthy.  Later, Karim’s aunt proudly recounts that their cousins and neighbors continue to throw stones and Molotov cocktails at the soldiers.  We are uncertain that Karim makes the connection between criminality and consequences.

Karim still dreams of being the Liberator of Palestine, of being the one to return the olive trees of four generations to his family.  He has never been told that this little piece of ground had belonged to the Jews through many centuries.  Another announcement on TV states that a suicide bomber has killed eleven Israelis, four of them secondary-school students.  The family deliberates the reprisals, while Karim considers the bomber’s heroism.   The author allows a voice of reason, as though to suggest that there are Palestinians who seek peace.  As the lone voice of conscience and temperance, his uncle speaks privately to Karim, that had the Arabs won the war of 1967, they would be doing precisely what the Israelis are doing now.  He appears to suggest that Karim considers that there is no morality to bombing Israelis, causing blindness, severe disabilities, death, and misery to so many and that it may be time to seek a peaceful solution to their existence, but the opportunity of meaningful conversation is short-lived.  They are called to dinner, where the group recounts the Arabs’ past victimization, the Turks, the English, now the Israelis. There is no mention of Hamas, the terrorist branch of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.  On the way home, the newscaster reports of tanks entering Bethlehem, and clashes between Arab youth and the IDF in Ramallah.  This, then, is what surrounds Karim.

Back home with Hopper, his friend talks about his family’s expulsion in 1948, not that they had expected to return victorious to Judea and Samaria after waging and losing their aggressive war against Israel.  At home, he hears of the reprisals for suicide bombers in Bethlehem, eight people killed by tank shells, three houses demolished by bulldozers.  Ramallah is open, but there are roadblocks. He has time to meet his friends, passes a crowd looking at the bridge and at the bomb affixed to its underside.  When he finds Hopper, he learns that Hopper attached a fake bomb, and Hopper rejoices that the IDF has been called to disassemble a sham.  At Hopper’s house, he sees the grandfather’s key from the home they left behind in 1967, in Ramle, which is now in Israel. It endures as a constant reminder of injustice and victimhood.

The three friends had their own little piece of ground near Hopper’s camp, which they have been working to clear for a soccer field.  Hopper had found cans of red and green paint amid the rubble and on his own time, painted stones and positioned them to form the Palestinian flag.  Joni and Karim marveled at his ingenuity.  They had also camouflaged the cab of what was once a car with debris for a perfect hideout.

Today, as they play on their land, a voice suddenly blares, “Being outside is forbidden.”  All but Karim could leave the field quickly.  There are Israeli tanks on higher ground, and his only refuge is the car’s cab.  With nothing but orange drinks to sustain him over two full days and nights, and the companionship of a mother cat and her kittens, he is well hidden.  He suffers from a stray bullet in the back of his leg and bandages it with a piece of clothing, but he remains quiet and concealed until the curfew is lifted and his older brother, Jamal, comes looking for him.  When the small Ramallah hospital staff learns of Karim’s experience and wound, he is hailed as the conquering hero and permitted to return home on crutches after two days.

Karim, home, hears the news, “Israeli tanks fired shells into a crowded building in Rafah last night, killing nine people and injuring . . .”  His friend Joni comes to visit Karim, to tell him that Hopper was shot at last night, but only his arm was grazed, and he would be fine.  Joni also came to say goodbye; he and his family, Christian Arabs, have no future here and are leaving for America.

The lesson learned by the vulnerable reader is that if you suffer nothing but a minor injury in your youth, you may go on to become a full-fledged terrorist.

But the more thoughtful reader should learn that there is nothing to counter the corrosive indoctrination that they are receiving in schools, in their homes, in their mosques, in the news reports.  Ramallah and similar cities in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza are breeding grounds for terrorism.

Defeating Nazis But Helping the New Nazis

By: Cliff Kincaid

On the day commemorating the Nazi defeat in Europe, the new Nazis, the Chinese Communists, march ahead, making money from suffering, misery, and death. They are tightening the screws on America, as the bodies pile up and millions lose their jobs. President Trump is promising a better year in 2021, assuming he can win re-election.

Meanwhile, Americans fight among themselves, unsure of what the virus actually is or what it can do, and questioning the government’s response. Both sides lose sight of the real enemy in Beijing which unleashed the virus on America and figures to come out on top of the New World Order.

Bloomberg reports that sales of medical gear likely aided China’s April export numbers. In other words, the Communist regime was profiting from the death it inflicted on the world through the release of the coronavirus. Do we need any more evidence that this is a bloodthirsty and Nazi-like regime whose insatiable quest for power has to be countered and stopped?

President Trump says about coronavirus: “This is really the worst attack we’ve ever had. This is worse than Pearl Harbor. This is worse than the World Trade Center. There’s never been an attack like this. And it should have never happened. It could have been stopped at the source — it could have been stopped in China. It should have been stopped right at the source, and it wasn’t.”

So why is the Trump Administration apparently going forward with a trade deal with the enemy?

The Wall Street Journal reports that the top trade negotiators for the U.S. and China talked on the phone Friday, “pledging to create favorable conditions for the phase one trade deal…” But Trump contradicted that later on, saying he has doubts. Can’t we figure out who the enemy is? Do we need more proof?

When he says coronavirus was worse than Pearl Harbor and 9/11, he’s right. The difference is that in those cases Democrats and Republicans joined together to face the threat. In the case of coronavirus, Trump (and a few of his allies) have been the only ones willing, until now, to put pressure on China for killing our people with the coronavirus. He’s called it the “invisible enemy” but it has a face and name – Chinese dictator Xi Jinping and his Red Guard wannabes. Worse yet, the Red Chinese used money from our own National Institutes of Health to manufacture this and other deadly viruses in the notorious Wuhan lab. Our top federal doctors should lose their jobs over this alone.

Have we become paper tigers in the face of this danger, content to squabble with the Beijing bureaucrats about how many soybeans they’ll buy from America’s farmers?

On a day when President Trump and first lady Melania Trump commemorated the 75th anniversary of the Allied victory in Europe, the U.S. is dickering with the Chinese communists, who have killed and poisoned tens of thousands of our people, about agricultural products. We look ridiculous.

Why on earth would the U.S. proceed with a trade deal with such a foe? Instead, of talking trade deals, the U.S. should be going on a war footing so that we can eventually take revenge on the butchers of Beijing. Trump could and should use his emergency powers, including the Defense Production Act, to quietly assemble our own stable of dangerous germs as a deterrent to Beijing’s further aggression.

If we don’t wake up and quickly, the Reds will mow us down like those demonstrators for liberty in Tiananmen Square.

We are facing a determined adversary every bit as threatening in its potential military power as Nazi Germany. This is a regime that has killed millions more than the Nazis ever did. Most of them were inside China. But we are now seeing the bodies pile up around the world, and they all carry the body bag sticker, “Made in China.”

How many deaths will it take for America to recognize Red China as our enemy? Are we prepared to sit back and get hit again, with another virus attack? Will we then tolerate 50-60 million unemployed and another hundred thousand dead?

Yesterday the White House held a National Day of Prayer to ask for Divine help and guidance. God’s help is always needed. But this is not the time to be loving our enemies. This is the time to mount an aggressive defense against future attacks and to convince the Red Chinese authorities that we are prepared to unleash hell on them unless they close down not only their grotesque wet markets but their dangerous bioweapon labs.

America was the major player in defeating the Nazis. Are we up to the current task?

The Reds lied about the nature of the virus and covered-up its release from China into the U.S. and the world. This was calculated on their part. They know what it is capable of and don’t want us to know. One thing we do know is that the latest study from a respected independent body of public health experts in Hong Kong proves the virus is far more contagious than the ordinary flu and previous viruses. It could mean the virus was engineered to be more lethal and debilitating.

Faced with this threat, President Trump couldn’t take a chance. This finding demonstrates that he was right to acquiesce to demands to close down sectors of the economy. It could have killed millions in America, rather than just tens of thousands. It also can mean, however, that he is taking a risk in approving the reopening of the economy as long as the virus lingers and we don’t really know who has it.

China has us where it wants us. Let’s don’t dicker about soybeans when our survival is still on the line.

Cut through the social media censorship and demand that the politicians name the enemy and propose a strategy for victory over that enemy. The life you save may be your own. Don’t go to your grave without doing everything possible to avoid the Chinese digging America’s grave. It’s time to act.
