The Big Business Buffoons Who Run Berkshire Hathaway

By: Cliff Kincaid

An objective history of World War II exposes the failure of the West, except for Winston Churchill, to foresee the aggression of Hitler’s Third Reich. Today, some of the smartest businessmen in the world still do not understand the menace posed by Communist China, even as its China virus continues to wreak havoc on the United States and the world.

Consider the recent performance of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger of Berkshire Hathaway, the multinational conglomerate, singing the praises of the communists running this evil regime. They have no understanding of the threat Chinese communism poses to the people of the earth. Their interest is money, money, money.

Many people watch their annual shareholders’ meetings to get tips on economic trends and analysis. I consulted a transcript and searched for anything they said about China, a modern incarnation of the Nazi regime that is working hand-in-glove with Vladimir Putin’s Russia and is now poised to invade peace-loving Taiwan. Buffett and Munger acted as if China were still a peaceful country and a member-in-good-standing of the international capitalist order.

In a shameful performance, Buffett and Munger came across as giddy cheerleaders for the communists. I suspect their uninformed opinions are shared by many elites in business and government.

If the American people want to save their nation from the global communist threat, they have to do two things. Number one: save themselves from the virus, and number two: evict any politicians who serve Chinese interests from positions of authority. This includes China Joe Biden and any Republican continuing to take seriously the Henry Kissinger view of the world.

Why is the Left so Obsessed with Cancel Culture?

By: Richard Douglas | Scopes Field

The American left has gained a ton of notoriety these last two decades, especially at the tail end of the Bush administration. They were certainly disagreeable then, but cross-party relationships still remained relatively intact and generally non-hostile, at least compared to today. The left has flown off the handle as the Obama administration egged on bad behavior and active hostility toward conservatives. Social justice became a huge topic, even gaining rabid activists that usually started in their teenage years. At first, it started out annoying, but relatively harmless. Then social media blew up. It was all downhill from there. Social media became a staple in American life and gave people incredible influence just for being present on social media. Young people were the first to adopt these platforms and have in turn become some powerhouse for reciting activist rhetoric. What’s worse is that these young people could spout insane nonsense and have other teenagers agree with them. The internet became an echo chamber for off-the-wall beliefs and perpetuated naive beliefs that were carried into adulthood because of the nature of the internet.

When Twitter hit the scene and became one of the most popular platforms in play these people gained genuine power. It first started off with coining terms like “microaggressions” and tens of genders. Then regular people began receiving hate for innocuous actions like enjoying Wild West movies (because Indians were portrayed as the bad guys) or refusing to be active supporters of the LGBT community even if it went against their personal beliefs. They even tried to go after guns for a little while. It evolved further with groups of people getting victims fired for things they said when they were clueless teenagers.

Communist Media Attack Western Vaccine Successes

By: Cliff Kincaid

With my pro-vaccine columns getting censored and dozens of people dropping off my subscriber list because of them, a friend wrote to me, saying, “I’d move on.  Biden/Harris are doing plenty of other things wrong to write about.” There are a couple of things wrong with this approach.

First, the China virus is the issue of our lifetimes. If we don’t understand what’s going on in this once-in-a-lifetime pandemic, nothing else matters. This virus can destroy a nation, as we are seeing in India. On the other hand, vaccines can save a nation, as we are seeing in Israel.

Many in the conservative movement are on the wrong side of this issue, agitating in tune with the Chinese and Russian media that Western-made vaccines are dangerous to human health and must be resisted. This position is fed by communist disinformation and constitutes a form of national suicide.

On another level, the hopelessly divided Republican Party is powerless to stop Biden/Harris because of Democratic Party domination of the executive and legislative branches of the federal government.

The only person that matters in this scheme of things is Senator Joe Manchin, a moderate Democrat who can side with Republicans in the Senate. There is some hope that the “Republican” Supreme Court will stop or reverse some Biden/Harris initiatives, and we should pressure the Court to do just that. But these decisions and rulings will come slowly.

Accused of Abuse, Ex-CAIR Florida Leader Admits to Multiple Religious Marriages

By: Steve Emerson | CCNS

Hassan Shibly, who was one of the highest-profile officials at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), has been accused of spouse abuse and repeated harassment in a National Public Radio story published Thursday.

Shibly resigned as director of CAIR’s Florida chapter in January, weeks after his wife went public with spouse abuse allegations. CAIR’s announcement of his departure made no mention of those allegations, and thanked Shibly for leaving “the organization stronger than ever.”

But his wife Imane Sadrati’s appeal for money on the GoFundMe website helped spark a number of other allegations against Shibly. CAIR, in turn, was accused of covering for Shibly.

“I got married at a very young age,” Sadrati wrote in the fundraising appeal, which has raised more than $32,000 as of Friday morning. “However, when I was 9 months pregnant with my firstborn; my marriage became volatile and abusive.”

Secretary Blinken Is Wrong on Israel’s Demography

By: Yoram Ettinger | CCNS

Secretary of State Antony Blinken keeps advising Israel to retreat from the mountain ridges of Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), lest it loses its Jewish majority.

Secretary Blinken is wrong, relying on highly-inflated, erroneous Palestinian Authority numbers, ignoring the dramatic Westernization of Arab demography, and overlooking the unprecedented Jewish demographic tailwind in Israel, as documented by the following data.

Jewish demography bolstered

*The number of Israeli Jewish births in 2020 (134,866) was 68% higher than in 1995 (80,400), while the number of Israeli Arab births in 2020 was 16% higher (42,435) than in 1995 (36,500), as reported by the March 2021 Monthly Bulletin of Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics (ICBS).

* In 2020, Jewish births were 76% of total births, compared to 69% in 1995.

*The fertility rate (number of births per woman) of Israeli secular Jewish women has trended upward during the last 25 years, while ultra-orthodox women have experienced a slight decline.

*Israeli Jewish women – who are second only to Iceland in joining the job market – are unique in experiencing a rise in the fertility rate, along with expanded urbanization, education, the standard of living, integration into the job market, and a rise of wedding age, while these phenomena have lowered the fertility rate in all other countries.

China Joe Earns the Name China Joe

By: Cliff Kincaid

China Joe says, “We’re in a competition with China and other countries to win the 21st Century.” He has a strange view of competition. China spends its money on a contagious and dangerous virus that is leaked from a Chinese lab and we have to spend trillions to bury the dead and rescue our economy. Sounds one-sided to me.

This “competitor” is like the burly guy wearing a wig who claims to be a girl to compete in women’s sports. The fake woman uses his brawn to his advantage.

Biden calls this “equality.”

We are at a fundamental disadvantage with China on the world stage, stemming from a fateful decision by Henry Kissinger and the CIA decades ago to treat China as a country that gave up on communism. Now, China Joe wants to give China an unfair advantage in global affairs in much the same way he favors transgenders passing themselves off as women.

(Note: my own bookThe Sword of Revolution and the Communist Apocalypse, predicted China’s leadership role in the global communist revolution and exposed the so-called Sino-Soviet split as Marxist dialectics and deception).

China Joe has accelerated Trump’s Operation Warp Speed vaccines but he doesn’t want to give Trump credit. Instead, he talks endlessly about wearing masks. “Be a patriot. Wear a mask,” he says.

Nationalism vs. Patriotism: What’s the Difference and Why it Matters

By: Sam Jacobs | Ammo.com

what is nationalism vs patriotismThe terms “nationalism” and “patriotism” are often used interchangeably. This is understandable, as they have somewhat overlapping meanings, both of which suffer from a certain amount of vagueness. However, there are a number of key differences between the two that are worth shedding light on. In the final analysis, we believe that the term “nationalism,” while not denoting anything totalitarian by its nature, is not an accurate term for the sentiment that exists in the United States. Nationalism, it would seem, is more suited to Europe or Asia, places with historic nations, united by common language and ethnicity that are necessarily tied with a certain area of land.

There’s a lot to unpack here and the differences are extremely subtle. And to give a bit of a spoiler, we’re not going to be taking the position, as is often the case, that patriotism is fine but nationalism is simply a metastatic and malignant form of patriotism.

First Things First: How Do Both Differ From Libertarianism and Conservatism

Gadsden Flag Don't Tread On Me

Before going any further, it’s worth taking a few minutes to distinguish both patriotism and nationalism from libertarianism and conservatism. We can do this without parsing out the difference between patriotism and nationalism – and for that matter, libertarianism and conservatism.

Trapper’s Quote Of The Week

By: Trapper Pettit

Norm Franz said, “Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentleman, barter is the money of peasants, and debt is the money of slaves.” With Social Security, and pension funds owning most of America’s debt through its citizen’s retirement money, confidence is high that this isn’t going to end well for the average slave. It never does.
