Biden shows his colors at the Coast Guard


Biden misquotes Reagan’s joke to the Coast Guard, then Biden asks for applause

The Daily Mail reports that Biden’s failed joke at the Coast Guard was actually a misquote of Ronald Reagan’s well-delivered joke.

BidenScoldsCoastGuardCadetsJoe Biden lifted a line from a famous Ronald Reagan speech during his address to Coast Guard graduates, but appeared to flub the joke and got angry when nobody laughed.

Addressing the Coast Guard in his first commencement speech as president, Biden attempted to make a joke about the Navy on Wednesday.

‘I can only assume that you’ll enjoy educating your family about how the Coastguard is, quote, the hard nucleus around the Navy forms in times of war.’

Biden seemed to trip over his words and the attempt at humor failed to raise a laugh.

The response upset Biden, who told the graduates: ‘You are a really dull class.’

When an old relative continually forgets things, has mental lapses, gets angry at strangers, and gets lost — it is time to take action

We are long past the time that Joe should have been put in a mental facility. If he were just someone’s crazy uncle, he would already have been committed (considering the many times that he has been angry for no reason, has forgotten things, and has shown other signs of dementia).

Biden quotes Mao to the Coast Guard in support of his effort to feminize the military

Fox News reports Joe Biden’s quote of Chairman Mao during the Coast Guard commencement ceremonies.

US-POLITICS-BIDEN-COMMENCEMENTDuring an address to the graduating class at the United States Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut, President Biden appeared to quote the late Chinese Communist Chairman Mao Zedong in remarks about gender equality.

In New London on Wednesday, Biden lamented what he considered the lack of women in the workplace commensurate to men, and told the class about “a Chinese saying” that summarized his thoughts — as he observed the USCG’s graduating class is notably one-third female.

“There’s a saying, used in a different context, a Chinese saying that says, ‘Women hold up half the world,” Biden said.

“It’s an absolute stupid position not to make sure [women] represent at least half of what we do,” Biden said Wednesday.

While the leader of the Chinese Communist Party in the 1950s, “Chairman Mao” said that “women hold up half the sky,” a comment that was used to promote the CCP’s “Great Leap Forward” endeavor, which led to tens of millions of deaths.

According to the Daily Caller, Biden has referenced the late dictator’s line at least twice before: during a 2020 fundraiser and in an ABC News interview while explaining why he chose then-SenKamala Harris, D-Calif., as his running mate.

Never mind the millions that Chairman Mao killed, let’s have Biden continue to emulate Mao

This is not the first time Biden has quoted Mao. During the campaign, he not only quoted Mao, but also had his top adviser say that Mao was her “favorite political philosopher.” Therefore, this is not a new path for old Joe.

Maybe it is just reassurance to his base that he will stay the course.

Then again, maybe there is not that much cause for celebration, since it seems Joe botched the quote of Mao, too.

Never mind all of that — here are the conservative cartoons

Seven stories that may prove that Joe Biden has overestimated the popularity of China


  1. China’s greenhouse gas emissions exceeded the rest of the developed world combined

The Daily Caller points out a key fact for the greenies: China put out more greenhouse gases than the developed world combined. If Joe Biden and the environmental left really cared about the environment, they would go to war with China.

China’s greenhouse gas emissions in 2019 exceeded those of the U.S. and the rest of the world’s developed nations combined for the first time.

report published Thursday by the energy consulting firm Rhodium Group found that China was responsible for 27% of global emissions, far exceeding those of the U.S. with the second highest at 11%, and India in third at 6.6%.

Chinese President Xi Jinping was a participant in a virtual climate summit hosted by President Joe Biden last month during which he urged countries to work together to combat climate change and reiterated China’s pledge to reach net-zero emissions by mid-century.

“We must be committed to multilateralism… China looks forward to working with the international community, including the United States, to jointly advance global environmental governance,” President Xi said during his remarks.

China is also a partner to the Paris Climate Agreement, the global accord among the world’s developed nations to lower carbon emissions.

The Trump administration withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Accords in 2019. President Biden signed an executive order to rejoin it back in February.

The Biden administration’s Climate Envoy John Kerry also recently met with his Chinese counterpart for bilateral talks in Shanghai, during which the two sides reaffirmed their commitment “to cooperating with each other” to strengthen the Paris Agreement.

I am hoping that this (along with inflation at the grocery store and gas pumps) will bring America around

When Americans see that the sacrifice of Americans jobs is for nothing, they will start to wake up. When Americans start to have to pay more at the pump, they will wake more. When they have to pay double or three times of what they formerly paid for breakfast, they might revolt against the Democrats.

  1. Chinese spies could be using Jack Ma’s Alibaba to infiltrate a major EU airport, claims Belgian Justice Minister

Breitbart reports that a Belgian Justice Minister suggests that Chinese spies may be using Alibaba to infiltrate a major European Union airport.

JackMaChinese spies could be able to access “sensitive” information in Belgium through investments made into the Liège Airport by the Jack Ma-owned e-commerce giant Alibaba, the country’s justice minister admitted this week.

Appearing before a hearing of the House Justice Committee, Justice Minister Vincent Van Quickenborne said that “Chinese intelligence service agents could have access to sensitive and secure areas of the airport”.

“Alibaba will also have to obey the Chinese security apparatus in the event that the latter wishes to have access to potentially sensitive commercial and personal data held by Alibaba in the context of its activities in Liège,” the minister added in comments reported on Friday by the local news outlet 7sur7.

Quickenborne referenced the 2017 National Intelligence Law, which mandates that Chinese companies allow the communist government access to their data, no matter whether such a company has overseas operations, such as Alibaba, which uses Liège as a distribution hub for shipping goods around Europe.

He also pointed to the 2016 cybersecurity law in China, which he said gives the power to Chinese intelligence operatives to “copy data, including user data. This law applies to any company that provides service via the internet, including Alibaba.”

The Flemish politician claimed that the Liège airport, which is outside the city of Maastricht, is of critical strategic importance to the Chinese Communist Party, saying: “This interest is not limited to intelligence and security purposes but can be viewed within a broader political and economic framework.”

He said that “the future economic importance of Liège Airport to China cannot be underestimated”, explaining that Beijing intends to build an additional 215 new airports by 2035 in order to expand its global economic reach.

Remember, it was just 2 May when Governor Abbott suggested the Chinese could be sending spies over the Mexican border

On 2 May 2021, Governor Abbott suggested that the Chinese sneaking over the Biden’s open Southern border could be spies. Although Joe Biden does not believe that America is in conflict with China and sees references to the origin of coronavirus as racist, they seem to take this very seriously.

  1. Report leaks that shows Chinese military scientists sought to weaponize SARS

The Daily Wire informs us of a leaked report detailing how Chinese scientists worked to weaponize Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

Scientists in the Chinese military discussed weaponizing SARS coronaviruses in a document obtained by the United States Government where they discussed their ideas about using biological weapons to win a third world war.

“The document, written by People’s Liberation Army scientists and senior Chinese public health officials in 2015, was obtained by the US State Department as it conducted an investigation into the origins of COVID-19,” The Weekend Australian reported exclusively. “The paper describes SARS ­coronaviruses as heralding a ‘new era of genetic weapons’ and says they can be ‘artificially manipulated into an emerging human ­disease virus, then weaponized and unleashed in a way never seen before.’”

The report was careful to caution that no information has been made public suggesting that the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic was the result of an intentional act. Many officials have urged investigations into the Wuhan Institute of Virology to determine if that lab, which is China’s only Biosafety Level-4 lab (BSL-4), had any role in the origin of the pandemic. BSL-4 is a designation for facilities that are designed to handle pathogens so contagious and dangerous that “infections caused by these microbes are frequently fatal and without treatment or vaccines,” according to the CDC.

The report states that chairmen of the British and Australian foreign affairs and intelligence committees, Tom ­Tugendhat and James Paterson, were alarmed by the document, and indicated that it raised serious concerns over the transparency coming out of communist China about the origins of the pandemic. The document is titled, “The Unnatural Origin of SARS and New Species of Man-Made Viruses as Genetic Bioweapons.”

The Australian reports:

Some of China’s senior public health and military figures are ­listed among the 18 authors of the document, including the former deputy director of China’s Bureau of Epidemic Prevention, Li Feng. Ten of the authors are scientists and weapons experts affiliated with the Air Force Medical ­University in Xi’an, ranked “very high-risk” for its level of defense research, including its work on medical and psychological sciences, according to the Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s ­Defense Universities Tracker.

The Air Force Medical University, also known as the Fourth Medical University, was placed under the command of the PLA under President Xi Jinping’s military reforms in 2017. The editor-in-chief of the paper, Xu Dezhong, reported to the top leadership of the Chinese Military Commission and Ministry of Health during the SARS epidemic of 2003, briefing them 24 times and preparing three reports, according to his online ­biography.

He also held the position of professor and doctoral supervisor in the Air Force Medical University’s Military Epidemiology ­Department. Other authors include Zhang Jiangxia and Zhao Ningning, who both served as experiment scientists in the same department.

The Australian verified the authenticity of the paper through digital forensics expert Robert Pottinger, who has worked for three of the five governments, including the U.S., represented in Five Eyes, an intelligence alliance comprised of the U.S., Australia, Canada, the U.K., and New Zealand.

Just as with the coronavirus, scientists in China leak this

If it were not for a few scientists and doctors in China who have a conscience, we would be very much at a loss for information. These doctors and scientists have often paid with their lives or their livelihoods. We owe them much.

  1. NASA slams China after rocket debris lands near Maldives for “failing to meet responsible standards”

Fox News points out how NASA slammed China for its dropping rocket debris near the Maldives.

NASA rebuked China for failing to meet responsible spacefaring standards after remnants of the nation’s rogue Long March 5B rocket landed in the Indian Ocean near the Maldives early Sunday.

Sightings of the Chinese rocket debris reentering Earth’s atmosphere and scorching across the pre-dawn skies were reported in Jordan, Oman and Saudi Arabia.

“It is clear that China is failing to meet responsible standards regarding their space debris,” NASA Administrator Sen. Bill Nelson said in a statement.

Nelson said all spacefaring nations must be transparent in their operations regarding the reentry of objects from space in order to minimize the risks to people and property on Earth.

“It is critical that China and all spacefaring nations and commercial entities act responsibly and transparently in space to ensure the safety, stability, security, and long-term sustainability of outer space activities,” Nelson said.

China’s official Xinhua News Agency reported that reentry occurred Sunday at 10:24 a.m. Beijing time.

“The vast majority of items were burned beyond recognition during the reentry process,” the report said.

Emotions on social media ranged from jokes to sighs of relief following confirmation that the rocket had crashed down after its uncontrolled descent was tracked around the world over the past week.

NASA holds monthly range safety meetings to ensure the safety of missions

Each experiment on each mission gets reviewed for everything that could go wrong and how things will work when things go right.

One wonders if a similar meeting gets mirrored at the Chinese space agency.

  1. Hunter Biden may have another Chinese scandal

Townhall explores another Hunter Biden Chinese scandal that the press may again refuse to report.

BidensHunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” shows he had a “flirty” relationship with his secretary, who worked for a Chinese Communist Party company where he conducted business. The Daily Mail has the details:

After launching his multi-million-dollar joint venture with CEFC, Hunter was assigned a 29-year-old Chinese-American assistant, JiaQi Bao, who quickly struck up a close and intriguing relationship with her Biden boss.

At first, emails show the New York-based Bao diligently scheduled flights, hotels and even doctor’s appointments for the president’s son.

But mysteriously, the young assistant also sent him opposition research to help Joe Biden’s 2020 election bid, urged him to take cash from the joint venture’s accounts as the business collapsed and wrote flirty and personal messages and even ended up with Hunter’s military dog tags in her New York apartment – the same tags he can be seen wearing in home-made porn videos he recorded on his laptop.

After partnering with Chinese oil giant CEFC in the multi-million-dollar deal, Bao was appointed as his secretary and assistant, acting as a go-between for his Chinese business partners, translating documents and performing clerical work for Hunter in the joint venture.

According to Bao’s LinkedIn page, she has worked as an analyst and assistant in finance and private equity in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing and New York since 2011.

As CEFC started to collapse, Hunter Biden’s assistant encouraged him to withdraw money from the accounts held by the company. Further, the company’s Secretary General was known as the “spy chief of China.”

Hunter and Joe Biden’s brother Jim partnered with CEFC in 2017, in a deal that was meant to generate billions of dollars and create a string of oil and gas projects in the Middle East and Europe.

But the joint venture collapsed the following year when CEFC’s secretary general Patrick Ho was arrested and later convicted of bribery in a US federal prosecution.

Ho was suspected of working with the Chinese intelligence services, and had been monitored by federal law enforcement under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, court documents revealed.

Hunter remains under investigation by the FBI, but his attorneys maintain he did nothing illegal.

The press would not cover the laptop when it counted. Most people still do not know about it. Therefore, will they report this?

They did not report the attack Joe has been accused of committing against Tara Reade.

They did not report on the laptop with its photos and videos of sex with underage Chinese girls, photos of Hunter with crack pipes, and other incriminating things.

To expect them to report on opposition research obviously funneled from the Chinese communist party to Joe Biden will probably be too much.

  1. Senator Ron Johnson: “Highly concerned” over Biden’s handling of China

Newsmax reports that Senator Ron Johnson has expressed that he is “highly concerned” over Biden’s handling of China.

Sen. Ron Johnson said Sunday he’s “highly concerned” about the ability of President Joe Biden’s administration to handle the threats China poses and said a leaked document that revealed the nation’s malevolent intent for weaponizing coronaviruses should not shock anyone.

“When you see the militarization of the South China Sea islands, their malign actions around the globe, we should have been concerned,” the Wisconsin Republican said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.”

It also “boggles” the mind that Dr. Anthony Fauci, in his role as head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, “continued to research and cooperate” with the Wuhan Institute of Virology that was studying coronaviruses.

“He had to know full well that the Wuhan lab, any organization in China is connected to the Communist Party of China, as well as the People’s Liberation Army,” said Johnson. “What were we doing, cooperating with China? These are some serious questions and we need some answers, but again, I’ve been trying to get answers out of federal agencies for years and I’m not holding my breath.”

Meanwhile, the news that continues to surface about President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and his connections with China are concerning but still pointed out that that was one of the reasons Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, issued a report before the election so the American people can understand the “entanglements” between the Bidens and China, and how that could affect foreign policy.

“We’ve written and trying to get information out of agencies but the media completely dismissed our report and said there was nothing in there,” said Johnson. “There was information in there. That’s part of the problem. We do not have unbiased media. We don’t have journalists anymore. For the most part, we have advocates and extreme left-wing of the American political spectrum and hurting the country, it’s very dangerous.”

Johnson said he is still working on an opinion piece about the COVID-19 vaccines and how he does not think they should be forced on Americans.

Further, he insisted that as the vaccines remain under an emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration, they have not yet been fully approved and people must be informed about the decisions they are making.

Why would Biden bite the hand that feed him?

Of course, Biden also has been fed by the Ukrainians and Russians via pay-offs to his son, Hunter.

  1. “Unfettered power”: China-controlled Hong Kong can now stop people from leaving the city

The Daily Caller reports that a new Chinese immigration law prevents those in Hong Kong from leaving.

An immigration law in Hong Kong is preventing people from leaving the city, according to The Guardian.

The provision, which allows the city’s immigration chief to stop people from taking planes to and from the city without a court order or ability to appeal, has been criticized by many lawyers, activists and business figures. The city’s bar association spoke out against the provision saying it gives “apparently unfettered power” to the immigration director, according to The Guardian.

Many also fear that exit bans could now come to Hong Kong. Many people were previously fleeing the city before the law took effect, The Guardian reported in March.

Exit bans are often used against activists who challenge the Chinese government, according to The Guardian.

“When they have this power, absolute power, you don’t know who they will use it on,” Chow Hang-tung, a barrister from the pro-democracy Hong Kong Alliance, said.

This does not sound like the agreement the Chinese made with the English

This does not sound like the agreement the Chinese made with the English when Britain pulled out of Hong Kong. However, the actions of China-loving Joe Biden don’t seem very much like the campaign of the purportedly moderate Biden.

Six headlines centering on Joe Biden’s border crisis


The migrants who got away total in numbers over 185,000 in this fiscal year

Breitbart reports that over 185K illegal aliens have been apprehended since 1 October (with a strong uptick during January).

BorderAgentTracksIllegalsWhoGotAwayA law enforcement source within Customs and Border Protection says more than 185,000 migrants escaped Border Patrol apprehension so far this fiscal year. On average, more than 30,000 illegal aliens avoided capture in the last 22 days the source said.

Breitbart Texas reported in mid-April, the “got-away” total exceeded more than 155,000 leaving Border Patrol leadership frustrated. Last year, 69,000 illegal migrants managed to avoid apprehension by the Border Patrol. In just over seven months of this fiscal year, which began on October 1, 2020, the number of “got-aways” nearly tripled last year’s totals. Sources report the sharpest increase began in January.

The metric is usually not released by the Department of Homeland Security. It is achieved by counting illegal immigrants who ultimately escape Border Patrol apprehension after being observed by aircraft platforms and camera systems. In addition, Border Patrol agents using traditional sign-cutting techniques identify footprints crossing the border and count those that elude apprehension.

“That’s where it gets tricky,” says one Border Patrol agent who did not wish to be identified. “On a small trail, dozens can walk all over each other’s footprints, so you just do your best. Often, they’ll glue carpet to the soles of their shoes making detection even harder.”

Sources report for these reasons, the “got-away” count is usually lower than reality. How much so is debatable as the latter method of counting is not scientific. The increasing “got-away” numbers come as CBP reports its highest apprehension totals since 2006.

Despite the current administration’s refusal to call the immigration situation on the border a crisis, the recent surges are concerning. The increasing number of unaccompanied migrant children crossing the border has Health and Human Services struggling to find sponsors within the United States.

With right-wing media investigating Biden agencies, “anonymous source” no longer means the left’s “fictional source” used against President Trump

During the first impeachment against President Trump, the Democrats (both inside and outside of the press) levelled charges at President Trump based on the words of some “anonymous whistleblower” (who, in the end, was totally discredited because no one person would stand up in the impeachment hearings and swear to the truth of what had been claimed). Thence, one might wonder if the left’s anonymous whistleblower might really be a fictional whistleblower.

In contrast, the Border Patrol agents who wished anonymous in this article would likely be backed up by the testimony of other agents. Therefore, it is my belief that the right’s anonymous tipster is a real tipster.

San Diego boat capsizes killing 3 and injuring 27 in smuggling operation

Fox News informs us on the deadly human smuggling accident in San Diego that occurred due to Joe Biden’s border disaster.

A boat off the coast of San Diego overturned Sunday morning, killing four people and injuring 24 others — one critically — in what authorities say was a smuggling operation.

SanDiegoSmugglingThe incident happened around 10:15 a.m. off Point Loma near Cabrillo National Monument. Lifeguards, the U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies responded to the scene after reports of an overturned vessel in the surf near the rocky peninsula.

Authorities recovered three bodies in the surf, San Diego Lifeguard Services Lt. Rick Romero said. One person was rescued from a cliff and 22 others managed to make it to shore, he said.

“Once we arrived on scene, the boat had basically been broken apart,” Romero said. “Conditions were pretty rough: 5 to 6 feet of surf, windy, cold.”

Twenty-seven people were transported to hospitals with “varying degrees of injuries,” Homeland Security spokesman Jose Ysea said. Most were able to walk themselves to ambulances.

Will the press tie this to Biden?

Every time there was something that the press could construe as racist during the Trump administration, they brought up Charleston (no matter the fact that President Trump denounced racists).

Because this would not have happened had Biden not created such a surge at the border, the question now is: Will the press hold Biden to the fire as stridently for a crisis he really did create as they did for Trump with a crisis he did not perpetuate?

Governor Abbott says that Joe Biden “abandoned the rule of law” at border, sending Texas costs soaring

Fox News conveys the words of Texas Governor Abbott, who says Joe Biden has “abandoned the rule of law” at the border and sent Texas costs soaring.

President Biden has abandoned the rule of law at the U.S.-Mexico border amid the migrant crisis, sending costs for border security soaring in Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott said Sunday.

Abbott told “Sunday Morning Futures” anchor Maria Bartiromo that the “root cause” of the record number of migrants entering the U.S. is because of the “lack of border security.”

“It shows that President Biden’s approach to this is to abandon the rule of law,” Abbott said of the migrant surge and Biden’s immigration policies.

Securing the border under the Biden administration is proving to be costly for Texas, according to the Republican governor.

“Our state legislature, they allocate about $800 million every two years for the state to pay for this,” Abbott said of securing the border. “This year, because of the extended time that we will have the National Guard on the border, it likely will clearly exceed a billion dollars for the state to have to secure the United States of America.”

Abbott said border security is only one of the many costs to the state, with others being health care, education and law enforcement. These costs will also affect other states where gangs and human traffickers go after crossing the border with migrants, the governor added.

“The first 100 days of the Biden administration, they’ve been great for the cartels, for the gangs, for the human traffickers who have been exploiting the borders,” he said.

The fact that Biden has abandoned the rule of law at the border is reason for Texas (and other states) to consider forming a more perfect union

Although proposals supporting Texit (the Texas exit from the USA) are stalled in the Texas legislature, this is the sort of thing that gives it impetus.

The Arizona Attorney General details how Biden kneecapped ICE

Townhall allows Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich to tell us how Biden crippled ICE.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich revealed this week that through his office’s lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security, documentation given to them through discovery showed Immigration Customs and Enforcement is basically being abolished through new policy measures put forth by the Biden administration.

In a press release sent out on Wednesday, Brnovich said the obtained documents showed due to changes to ICE “book-ins,” also known as arrests, because of policy shifts in who would be arrested and deported from the country means they would be down at least 50 percent.

“What the Biden administration is calling ‘interim guidance’ is really an attempt to undermine and abolish ICE through administrative acts. What the documents we’ve seen thus far reveal is that there have been nearly 8,000 dangerous individuals…released into our communities,” Brnovich said to Townhall.

“Make no mistake about this, this is a shocking disregard for the public safety of every American. It is having a devastating [financial] impact on our country and what the Biden administration is doing, on so many levels, is unconscionable,” he added.

An email from Enrique Lucero, the acting executive associate director for  Enforcement and Removal Operations at ICE, sent to other top officials on January 27 talked about the decrease in the number of people who would normally be in ICE custody but will no longer be due to the shift in priorities from the Biden administration:

“ERO ran historical data based on the new DHS memo priorities for enforcement to inform decision makers on potential impacts of the interim guidance. The data also compares what PEP would have looked like for reference. LESA should be able to filter data as needed to show weekly or monthly impacts. Rough estimate is book-ins would be reduced by 50% of historical numbers and the vast majority of book-ins would come from CBP transfers.”

“An attachment to this email also indicated that the policy could result in the release of convicted felons into communities (those convicted of murder, kidnapping, assault, sexual assault, weapons, and other serious charges),” Brnovich’s office stated.

This is dangerous to America

This especially endangers the border states. However, after just one bus ride (or, in some cases, a federally-subsidized airplane ride) it opens the whole nation up to a new crime wave/coronavirus wave.

Think about it next time you pass the airport or bus depot.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott suggests illegal aliens from China “could be espionage”

The Daily Caller quotes Governor Abbott as he suggests that the Chinese illegal aliens who have been caught “could be espionage.”

Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday suggested that some of the migrants illegally entering the southern border could be spies from China and Iran.

“Could be espionage,” Abbott said when asked by Fox News host Maria Bartiromo about border migrants allegedly coming from China.

“There again, this shows the danger of the [President Joe] Biden administration not doing anything because we need to debunk if there’s anybody out there who thinks that these are still just people coming from Mexico or Central America coming here to engage in agriculture, something like that, they’re forgetting about the people from China, from Iran, from terrorist-based nations,” Abbott told “Sunday Morning Futures.”

Bartiromo claimed that a border guard had told her that “they apprehended a group from China, and the group from China told them that they paid $50,000 a head — and by the way these were scientists and doctors and engineers from China. You have to ask why the [Chinese Communist Party] is sending these people to the border, obviously they don’t want to be noticed, what are they doing when they get here?”

Abbott also said the Biden administration “is doing nothing to stop” a border crisis that continues to see migrants sneak across the border without necessarily fearing deportation. He said the cost of this crisis includes “the health care cost, the education cost, the law enforcement cost, all these other costs that will be incurred not just by Texas but by all of these other states that the gangs and the human traffickers eventually go to.”

Fox Nation host Lara Logan has claimed that “the [Biden] administration uses taxpayer dollars — your money, my money — every taxpayer in America. When they use their funds to transport these kids all over the country and send them into different markets, different areas first to live in for the cartels, different markets for sex trafficking and other cartel activity.”

If the Chinese that are coming in with the other nationalities are not spies, they may be forced into becoming such.

China has a well-developed tracking system for their population. Therefore, if people come from China to America (legally or illegally), the government will likely know about it.

Even if these people are coming of their own volition to escape the totalitarian regime, if they have friends or family that they care about still in China, they could be forced into a life of spying for the Chinese.

MS-13 and other gangs exploit migrant wave to cross into US

The New York Post draws an explicit illustration of how MS-13 and similar gangs have exploited Joe Biden’s border crisis to get back into America.

Members of MS-13 and other gangs are slipping across the southern border, hidden in the waves of thousands of Mexican and Central American migrants who continue to surge into the US.

Border Patrol officials detained five gang members in the last week near frontier crossings at Laredo, TX., said US Border Patrol Agent Chief Matthew Hudak in a tweet Friday.

“They attempt to evade arrest by exploiting the influx of migrants attempting to enter our country,” Hudak tweeted.

Among those caught was a member of MS-13 and two 18th Street gang members, he said.

Both gangs are extremely violent and have origins among Central American immigrant communities in Los Angeles. MS-13, also known as Mara Salvatrucha, tried to establish an east coast stronghold on Long Island, responsible for dozens of murders in Suffolk County beginning in 2016. After an intense crackdown, Suffolk County authorities said they had practically eradicated the gang in the region two years ago.

Last month, Border Patrol agents in California arrested a 28-year-old man from El Salvador who was “a documented MS-13 gang member,” border agents said. The alleged gang member had been traveling in a group of Salvadoran migrants, according to Border Patrol.

Doesn’t this make you feel warm and gooey?

Doesn’t Joe Biden’s plan for processing illegal aliens into these states just make you feel warm inside?

Signs you have stepped into the opposites-land of Joe Biden’s America


Opposite-land in regard to the treatment of citizens and illegal aliens

Mask mandate and required vaccinations for us — no testing for illegal aliens

Townhall quotes Senator Grassley as he outlines the imbalance in the way the Biden regime handles COVID testing for citizens and illegal aliens.

GrassleyNow that President Joe Biden has terminated agreements with the northern triangle countries – El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras – and reopened overflow facilities for illegal aliens, many are flocking to the United States’ southern border. In fact, the Biden administration’s stance on illegal immigration is so lax that aliens have acknowledged that the Central American caravans have “100 days” to get to the border in order to obtain amnesty.

The White House’s take on illegal immigration sparks a greater debate: why is the United States opening its borders in the middle of the pandemic?

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) brought up a valid point: the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently implemented a mask mandate on all public transportation and a negative Wuhan coronavirus test for all international travelers.

“If you plan to travel internationally, you will need to get tested no more than 3 days before you travel by air into the United States (US) and show your negative result to the airline before you board your flight, or be prepared to show documentation of recovery (proof of a recent positive viral test and a letter from your healthcare provider or a public health official stating that you were cleared to travel),” the CDC’s directive states.

The Biden administration has even gone so far as to consider the same type of negative testing for domestic travel. It’s their way of preventing the spread of the virus.

Why then, can people walk across the border without going through the same kind of testing and scrutiny?

Biden has established a world first, America last agenda

When Biden signed his first fifteen or so executive orders, I thought that he had a illegal-alien-first attitude. However once he hit 52 executive orders that included kiss-up policies to China, appeasements to Iran, abortion-paying edicts for Latin America, and funding for the World Health Organization — it occurred to me that Biden just has an America last agenda.

ICE forced to “catch and release” without performing COVID testing

Breitbart references Fox News host Tucker Carlson in his 9 February 2021 allegation that the driving purpose of the Biden immigration policies come from a desire to humiliate the American voter.

On Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson led off his broadcast by questioning the double standard that applies to Americans traveling abroad and to illegal immigrants, which under the Biden administration are facing far more lax policies than the previous administration.

According to Carlson, the double standard applied to COVID-19 protocols, which are enforced for air travelers but not illegal border crossers.

The Fox News host said such policies have the effect of humiliating Americans.

Transcript as follows:

CARLSON: Some medical news for you off the top. Last month, the CDC issued a press release that begins this way, quote, “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expanding the requirement for a negative COVID-19 test to all air passengers entering the United States. Testing before and after travel is a critical layer to slow the introduction and spread of COVID-19. This strategy is consistent with the current phase of the pandemic and more efficiently protects the health of Americans.”

Got that. It’s all about the health of Americans, and that’s why every human being who enters this country by air must first present a negative test for the coronavirus that includes American citizens, there are no exceptions.

Corona infection, in fact, is the one universal reality of the human condition. We are all potential incubators of this deadly virus.

But it doesn’t end there. Travelers who test negative for COVID must still wear masks at all times, and that includes while onboard the airplane or while walking through the airport. If you don’t have a mask on, you had better be actively chewing, otherwise prepare for a steep fine and the possibility of never flying again.

Nor is one mask necessarily enough. Tony Fauci has announced we ought to consider wearing three masks at once, a paper petticoat for your face. That’s how serious our government is about fighting this global pandemic. But of course, you knew that, you’ve watched it.

You know that the risk is imminent and profound enough that your children likely have been out of school for a year. Your business may be shut down right now. Your parents may have died alone, unable to hold your hand in the final days.

The United States itself bears no resemblance to the place you once knew 12 months ago. But those are the sacrifices you have been asked to make, and you have and for good reason. COVID is dangerous. It’s existentially dangerous, they keep telling us.

The authorities are more than willing to destroy your family and your country in order to protect you from this virus. That’s their public position stated every day.

Do they actually mean it when they say it though? Those pictures of California Governor Gavin Newsom eating a maskless dinner in a crowded room with the most expensive restaurant in America were one indication that no, maybe they’re not entirely sincere about their COVID policies. Maybe it’s kind of a sham.

Maybe there’s one standard for you, a member of the despised and much bullied plebe class, and another very different standard for politically favored groups who can do whatever they want. Now, you’d hate to think that could be true in a country like this, a country with such a long and noble history of egalitarianism and equality under the law.

Unfortunately, there has been growing evidence of that double standard. Now there’s hard proof.

Tonight, we’ve learned that Joe Biden administration is releasing thousands of foreign nationals living here illegally into American neighborhoods without bothering to test them for the coronavirus.

People from countries with high infection rates within in crowded conditions set forth into the American population, like COVID isn’t real. That’s happening. It is the official policy of the U.S. government.

On Friday, the White House was asked about this policy, and here was the response.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

QUESTION: The U.S. Customs and Border Protection is saying that they’re having to catch and release some migrants without giving them any kind of COVID test before they are entering the community. So what is being done? What could be done?

JEN PSAKI, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: Are you — are you suggesting they’re letting people in across the border without testing them? Or tell me a little bit more —

QUESTION: They are being released — they are having to because of the Executive Order that the President signed earlier this week.

PSAKI: Which executive — which one?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

CARLSON: Yes, which one? COVID infected illegal aliens released into the United States? Whatever. It’s not like there’s a pandemic.

The Press Secretary didn’t care enough to answer the question. No big deal. Can I remind you that our Treasury Secretary is a woman? Shut up. You’ve been empowered.

But people who know the details of what is going on right now feel very differently and they are worried.

Brandon Judd runs the Border Patrol Union. We do not test the illegal aliens we release, Judd told the show, quote: “So we’re releasing people without knowing which obviously puts the public at risk.” Well, yes, it obviously does.

Leon Wilont is the Cheriff of Yuma County, Arizona. Last week he wrote a letter to one of his senators, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema will not call the Biden administrations new policy quote, “a particularly dangerous approach.”

As he put it, quote, “There is currently no protocol for testing any of these people for the COVID-19 virus nor is there any support being offered by the Federal government to house, feed, medically treat, or transport these immigrants,” and that’s why in some places, taxpayers are paying for foreign nationals who should be deported to live in hotel rooms. Unlike you, they’re not paying for your hotel room.

But if that seems crazy, disconnected from reality, it is a small part of the Biden administration’s immigration policy, a policy that seems designed to hurt the United States as profoundly as possible.

In an internal memo sent last week, ICE officials announced the administration is suspending something called Operation Talon. That operation targeted sex offenders, but no more. Illegal alien sex offenders are now a protected class.

Then a day after that, another internal ICE memo announced the quote: “Effective immediately, the Biden administration would stop deporting illegal aliens who have been convicted of drug offenses, assault, DUI, money laundering, property crimes, fraud, tax evasion, or who have gang tattoos.”

Going forward to any illegal alien charged with a crime, but not yet convicted of a crime would also be safe from deportation. So what does all of that mean in practice?

Well, it means for example, that an MS-13 member arrested for drug dealing with previous convictions for say, theft, extortion, grand larceny, would have to be released back into the United States, maybe into your neighborhood, even if he had been deported many times before.

That’s not some crazy hypothetical, by the way. Things like that will happen. A foreign national charged with rape, but who flees before trial — and that happens quite a bit — cannot be deported either. Technically, he hasn’t been convicted of rape, so deporting him would be an act of bigotry, and so on.

This is all real, and we will see cases like that guaranteed.

The question is motive. Why are they doing this? Even if you thought the United States badly needed more low-skilled workers in the middle of an employment crisis, even if you believe that, even if you believe that your right to cheap housekeeping is more important than the right of the American middle class to exist, and many of our leaders emphatically do believe that, how exactly do you explain suspending the hunt for sex offenders? How is that a good idea for anyone?

How is it a good idea to release illegal aliens in the middle of a pandemic without even testing them for the coronavirus?

How does all of that conceivably help you as an American, as someone who pays for all of this stuff? Well, of course, it doesn’t help you. But helping you is not the point. No one is even pretending the point of this was to help you. It’s the opposite. The point is to punish you.

When we release people who break our laws without even bothering to test them for the virus, the same virus we’ve used as a pretext for wrecking your life, what we’re really saying in the clearest possible terms is: we don’t like you.

This isn’t a policy. It’s an act of aggression. It’s designed to humiliate you and demoralize you.

Reckless and destructive immigration policy is the penalty you are paying for your white supremacy. It’s almost too dark to believe that’s their motive, too dark to believe it’s real, but it is. And over on MSNBC, they’re saying it out loud.

America, get ready to pay for the world’s medical bills

With Biden in office, Americans will have to accustom themselves to paying for everyone Biden thinks got a worse shake in life than your average American.

Of course, since Biden has “served” America for about 50 years among politicians who live in multi-million dollar mansions, he thinks you all can afford to pay for the world’s medical bills.

All-around destruction in foreign relations

Eleven Iranians arrested after jumping US/Mexico border

Fox News uses a 5 February 2021 article to point out how Joe Biden’s “open border” policy could have opened America to eleven Iranian illegal aliens (had the policy been implemented a week earlier).

ElevenIllegalAliensArizonaU.S. Border Patrol agents arrested 11 Iranian citizens after they crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona Monday evening.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents encountered the group near San Luis – a city in the southwest corner of Arizona – around 6 p.m. near County 21st Street and the Salinity Canal.

Agents determined the group had entered the U.S. illegally from Mexico. The group was arrested and taken into custody. The CBP said the group consisted of five females and six males, all from Iran.

The CBP said Yuma Sector agents regularly encounter people from all over the world crossing the border illegally, including people from “Special Interest Countries.”

In the last few years, Border Patrol agents at the Yuma Sector have apprehended more illegal crossers from Iran than all other Border Patrol sectors combined. Since October, Yuma Sector agents have apprehended 14 Iranian nationals.

Fox News has reached out to CBP for comments on potential updates but did not hear back by the time of publication.

Enforcement efforts in California and Texas over the years have pushed migrants into dangerous terrain in Arizona.

Immigration scholars say they expect a wave of people from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to try to cross the U.S.-Mexico border this year following a pair of disastrous hurricanes in Central America and with a Joe Biden administration after four years of hardline policies under President Donald Trump.

“Heading north will continue to be seen as an option,” Andrew Selee, president of the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute, wrote in November in Americas Quarterly magazine. “President-elect Joe Biden has promised to do things differently, treating migrants and asylum-seekers with dignity.”

Biden’s loose border would have allowed these eleven into America

Naturally, since Biden got rid of what he called the “Islamophobic travel ban,” these Iranians may have been able to enter legally in a  month or two. However, since these people were sneaking in, might they have any possible ill intent? Might they want to resume the monthly shootings by Islamists that had been occurring during the Obama/Biden years?

Biden’s appeasement of Iran begins

Powerline blog points to the destructive nature of Joe Biden’s first act of appeasement to Iran since coming to office.

AppeaserBidenJoe Biden is determined to appease Iran, and the appeasement has already commenced. Its public manifestation centers now on Yemen, and the Houthi rebels there.

The Houthis have long received considerable Iranian financial and military support, including in recent years cruise missiles and drones. They have used Iranian weaponry not just against the government of Yemen, but also against Saudi Arabia and the UAE, Iran’s arch enemies and allies of the U.S.

Thus, as John Bolton says, the Houthis are a threat to the oil-producing Gulf monarchies. As is Iran, of course.

Bolton explains:

In effect, Iran is trying to encircle its Arab enemies, chief among them Saudi Arabia, by installing a friendly regime in their backyard. Among the Arabian Peninsula states, Yemen is the poorest and most notably the only one without oil. Armed conflict and political hostility are the rule, not the exception, there.

The Trump administration recognized the threat posed by the Houthis, but didn’t do much about it. According to Bolton, direct U.S. involvement in the Yemen conflict ended with the 2018 suspension of in-flight refueling of Saudi air operations in Yemen. And Trump didn’t designate the Houthis as terrorists until his last day in office.

Team Biden may wish Trump had done more. That way, the new administration could more dramatically signal its willingness to back Iranian interests and sell out Saudi Arabia.

As it is, Biden must settle for small gestures. Thus, he announced last week, in his first presidential foreign-policy address, that “we are ending all American support for offensive operations in the war in Yemen, including relevant arms sales.” (Emphasis added)

Over the past eighteen months, a number of Middle Eastern states have entered into treaties with Israel

During the last year and a half, the Trump administration arranged treaties between a number of Middle Eastern states and Israel. Will the Biden regime undermine those treaties by supporting a rogue Islamic regime?

The Biden administration on jobs

Congressional Budget Office: $15 minimum wage will destroy 1.4 million jobs

Breitbart points to the Congressional Budget Office and their prediction that a $15 minimum wage will destroy 1.4 million jobs.

BrainFartBidenThe Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is out with a new report undercutting the case congressional Democrats and President Joe Biden have been making in favor of raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.

On Monday, the CBO released its report analyzing the economic impact of the Raise the Wage Act, which would increase the minimum wage to $15 by 2025. The CBO found that legislation would increase the federal budget deficit by $54 billion between 2021 and 2031. More importantly, however, the legislation would drive up the prices of goods and services, while also reducing employment by 1.4 million jobs. The report states:

In 2025, when the minimum wage reached $15 per hour, employment would be reduced by 1.4 million workers [or 0.9 percent of all jobs], according to CBO’s average estimate. In 2021, most workers who would not have a job because of the higher minimum wage would still be looking for work and hence be categorized as unemployed.

“Young, less educated people would account for a disproportionate share of those reductions in employment,” the CBO adds.

The report comes as both Biden and Democrats have argued that raising the minimum wage should be included in the $1.9 trillion relief package meant to combat the economic impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Last month, in an address delivered from his home state of Delaware, Biden asserted that a $15 minimum wage was required to ensure “nobody working 40 hours a week should be living below the poverty line.”

“There is real pain overwhelming the real economy, one where people rely on paychecks, not their investments, to pay for their bills and their meals and their children’s needs,” the president said.

With the inclusion of the $15 minimum wage increase, the $1.9 trillion relief program has become controversial. Even moderate Democrats, like Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), have expressed concerns that such a large hike would overly burden small businesses already reeling because of the virus.

Never mind the potential job destruction of a $15 minimum wage — focus on the jobs lost to Biden’s hatred of oil, gas, and coal

Some estimates put the job losses created by cheatin’ Biden’s killing of oil, gas, and coal jobs to be in the millions. Add to that millions of low-paying jobs lost to a $15 minimum wage and Biden may be able to trigger a depression (rather than the recession that stayed with America throughout the Obama years).

Jen Psaki mocks reporter when asked about Keystone pipeline job losses

The New York Post shows how Democrats mock those who got put out of jobs.

JenPsakiMocksKeystoneJobLossesWhite House press secretary Jen Psaki on Monday mocked a reporter who asked when workers on the canceled Keystone XL pipeline would get “green jobs” promised by President Biden.

It’s expected that up to 11,000 jobs will be lost following Biden’s day-one decision to immediately shut down construction of the pipeline that was supposed to carry oil from Canada to Texas — leaving South Dakotans reeling and 1,000 people immediately out of work.

“Where is it that they can go for their green job?” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Psaki at her Monday afternoon press briefing, referring to Biden’s promise to create good-paying union jobs in the green energy sector as his administration attempts to end the nation’s reliance on fossil fuels.

“That is something the administration has promised and there is now a gap so I’m just curious when that happens, when those people can count on that?” Doocy added.

“Well, I’d certainly welcome you to present your data of all the thousands and thousands of people who won’t be getting a green job,” Psaki snarked. “Maybe next time you’re here you can present that.”

“But you said they will be getting green jobs. I’m just asking when that happens?” Doocy responded, noting a report by the Laborers’ International Union of North America that found 1,000 union jobs on the Keystone project would “immediately vanish.”

Another 10,000 construction jobs expected to be created by the project have also been nixed by Biden’s decision.

A prominent union leader and Biden ally, AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, lashed the decision in an Axios on HBO interview Sunday, saying Biden should have also announced where he would replace those lost jobs.

“I wish he hadn’t done that on the first day, because the Laborers International was right. It did and will cost us jobs in the process,” Trumka told Jonathan Swan.

“I wish he had paired that more carefully with the thing that he did second by saying, ‘Here’s where we’re creating jobs,’” he went on, saying he believed Biden knows his announcement was “a mistake.”

Trumka, a former coal miner, also signaled his skepticism at Biden’s plan to transition coal, gas and oil workers to clean energy jobs, saying he was subject to a similar failed policy.

“You know, when they laid off at the mines back in Pennsylvania, they told us they were going to train us to be computer programmers,” Trumka said.

“And I said, ‘Where are the computer programmer jobs at?’ ‘Uh, they’re in, uh, Oklahoma and they’re in Vegas and they’re here.’ And I said, ‘So, in other words, what we’re going to be is unemployed miners and unemployed computer programmers as well,’” he recounted.

But Psaki swatted away the criticism and made a vague promise that Biden would put a jobs plan forward in the coming weeks.

“He has every plan to share more details on that plan in the weeks ahead,” she said when asked how Biden would support workers left jobless by the decision.

Biden’s climate czar John Kerry was also condemned by Republicans last month as “out of touch” when he suggested that energy and coal workers impacted by climate change efforts could “go to work to make the solar panels.”

If you can’t see that Biden doesn’t care about your job, you can’t read

Attitudes like the one displayed by Jen Psaki often get caught from above. The one way we might find that her actions do not represent the Biden administration would be if she gets fired or if she is forced to apologize. Since it has been several days since her mocking of this reporter, I would not count on anything proving me wrong.

Opposite-land in regard to corruption

These 11 Republicans voted to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from committees due to her pre-office social media endorsements of several extremist conspiracy theories

Newsweek reported on the 11 Republicans that joined all Democrats in removing Representative Marjorie Greene from her committee seats due to old tweets.

11RINOsEleven Republican House members have voted in favor of removing Republican Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee seats due to her past social media endorsements of several extremist conspiracy theories. With their support, the House voted 230 to 199 in favor of Greene’s removal from the committees.

Ten of the Republicans who voted against Greene included John Katko, Chris Jacobs and Nicole Malliotakis of New York; Young Kim of California; Carlos A. Giménez of Florida; Maria Elvira Salazar of Florida; Chris Smith of New Jersey; Fred Upton of Michigan; Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois. Kinzinger, in particular, has become a vocal critic of Greene, accusing her rhetoric of inspiring anti-government insurrectionists.

While House Democrats clamored for Greene to be removed from her assignments to the House Committee on Education and Labor and the House Budget Committee, stating that the influential seats legitimize her extremist views, it was initially unclear how many Republicans would side with the Democrats.

In Greene’s past social media comments, she has advocated for violence against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former President Barack Obama, said that an airplane never hit the Pentagon during the September 11 terrorist attacks, accused former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of slicing off a child’s face and wearing it and many other conspiracy theories.

On Wednesday, Republican Minority House Leader Kevin McCarthy said that Greene had specifically denounced her past comments in support of QAnon, her belief that all school shootings were staged events meant to increase firearm regulations and her belief that wealthy Jews used a space laser to start the 2020 West Coast wildfires.

Wearing a face mask that said “FREE SPEECH,” Greene echoed McCarthy’s statement in a Thursday House floor speech she made before the vote. She said that in 2017, her personal upsets and distrust in government had caused her to “stumble” onto QAnon, the conspiracy theory that Democratic and Hollywood elites run a Satanic and cannibalistic international child sex-trafficking ring.

“The problem with that though is I was allowed to believe things that weren’t true, and I would ask questions about them and talk about them, and that is absolutely what I regret,” she said.

Greene said that she believes the September 11 terrorist attacks “absolutely happened” and that “school shootings are absolutely real and every child that is lost, those families mourn it.”

“These were words of the past, and these things do not represent me,” Greene claimed. “They do not represent my district, and they do not represent my values.”

In the past, Greene said the Democrats and the “Fake News Media” were “coming after” by bringing up her past social media posts because she’s “a threat to their goal of Socialism” and represents “the people, not the politicians.” She has also said that Democrats want to “destroy Republicans, your jobs, our economy, your children’s education and lives, steal our freedoms, and erase God’s creation.”

If Democrats punished their own and Republicans punished their own, this would be ok

Problem is that Democrats punish Republicans and Republicans punish Republicans, but nobody punishes Democrats.

Democrats can sleep with Chinese spies. Democrats can threaten countries we are aiding with withdrawal of billions of dollars of that aid. Democrats can have relatives receive hundreds of millions from foreign criminally-affiliated sources.

Democrats can make speeches to crowds where the speaker encourages acts of violence. Democrats can make violence-encouraging speeches and then fund-raise to bail thugs out that responded to her speeches.

White House confirms Hunter Biden still holds stake in Chinese private equity firm

The Epoch Times reports that Biden has confirmed Hunter’s continued stake in a Chinese private equity firm.

BidenChineseWhite House press secretary Jen Psaki appeared to confirm that President Joe Biden’s son Hunter still holds a stake in a Chinese private equity firm.

“He has been working to unwind his investment,” Psaki said during a Feb. 5 press conference when asked about Hunter Biden’s stake in Bohai Harvest RST Shanghai Equity Investment Fund Management, commonly known as BHR Partners.

Psaki’s remarks confirmed an early report by the Daily Caller saying the president’s son still holds a stake in the Chinese company.

She then directed reporters to the younger Biden for further questions.

“I would certainly point you—he’s a private citizen. I would point you to him or his lawyers on the outside on any update,” she said.

Hunter Biden didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from The Epoch Times.

George Mesires, a lawyer who represents the president’s son, said in an Oct. 13, 2019, statement that Hunter Biden intended to resign from the BHR board of directors on or by Oct. 31, 2019.

Business records show that Hunter Biden left the board of directors on April 20, 2020. However, he still holds a 10 percent stake via his company, Skaneateles LLC.

Hunter Biden is the sole beneficial owner of Skaneateles LLC, according to Washington, D.C., corporate records obtained by the Daily Caller.

The president told CNN’s Jake Tapper that his family would refrain from foreign business to avoid conflicts of interests.

“My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict, where there’s appropriate distance from the presidency and government,” he said during the Dec. 3, 2020, interview.

Biden son-in-law’s involvement in company raises ethics questions

NewsMax catches the Biden administration in a “duh” moment when they acknowledge that another family member has taken a compromising position.

KreinQuesionablePresident Joe Biden’s son-in-law’s involvement in a company that invests in companies seeking federal government contracts has raised more questions about ethics and nepotism which follow previous questions about his son’s business dealings.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday dismissed suggestions that Biden’s family members, in this case his daughter Ashley and son-in-law Howard Krein, are benefiting from their relation to the  president.

“The president has made clear there will be an absolute wall between him and any business connected with his family members,” Psaki said.  “We’ve put in place stringent policies.”

However, both ABC and Fox News reported that a small tech firm, Yosi Health, which has developed software to improve COVID-19 vaccination distribution, in December contacted StartUp Health, a company where Krein serves as the chief medical officer, specifically because of its government contacts.

“Our goal with StartUp Health is to leverage their relationships and work with state and federal agencies,” Yosi CEO Hari Prasad told with ABC News.

Ethics accusations against Biden have largely focused on his son Hunter, particularly after a laptop reportedly belonging to him was left unclaimed at a Delaware computer repair shop that contained emails that suggested influence peddling. They also appeared to contradict Joe Biden’s claims that he had no knowledge of his son’s business affairs.

Tony Bobulinski,  a business associate of both Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, in a firm that was a joint venture with CEFC China Energy, rebuked Joe Biden’s claims, saying the former vice president and now president was well aware of his son’s activities.

Opposite-land in regard to unity

Biden calls for unity, but party’s recent past tells different story

Fox News comments on Biden’s speech and the Democrat history on unity.
https://youtu.be/19N43o2peOI

This is a rush transcript from “Hannity,” January 20, 2021. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Welcome to “Hannity.”

We do have breaking news we’re following tonight — violence erupting again in Portland and Seattle.

And today, after a historic and groundbreaking four years in the White House, President Trump departed Washington, D.C., a huge crowd awaited him. In his final remarks, the president reiterated that his America first movement has only just begun.

Make no mistake: The 75 million Americans who voted for President Trump, they are not going away. I’m one of them, I’m not going away either, although many on the left would probably love that.

Our conservative values, they are not going away. Our dedication to the Constitution, that’s not going away. Our love of freedom and justice for all, that’s not going away either.

Look at this crowd when he arrived in Florida. We’re going to show you more of it coming up later, and also we are following the story out of Portland and Seattle. I guess we don’t have the video yet.

All right. Coming up, we will talk about the future of the America first, make America great conservatism and the Republican Party.

But, first, like it or not, Democrats are now in control of all branches of government. And the White House this morning, Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States.

And, by the way, in his first address to the nation, Joe predictably meandered his way through what is a truly unremarkable, totally forgettable, even pre-rehearsed set of remarks.

Let’s be honest. The rest of the media mob, they were just flat out lying to the American people as usual. This was not in any way, shape, matter or form a memorable speech. It will not be talked about decades to come.

Frankly, to be blunt, it’s already forgotten. Even Bill Clinton seemed to be falling — yeah, he’s nodding off there, take a look, asleep.

Poor Bernie Sanders, he looked miserable and completely uninterested. I don’t know. It looks like he thought he was in Vermont.

As I said on the radio this afternoon, the inaugural address sounded more like an uninspired student council — high school student council president acceptance speech from a guy who desperately was craving a nap. And, of course, the main theme of the speech was unity.

After four years of outright lying, conspiracy theories, witch hunts, one hoax after the other, vitriol, nonstop hysteria, two impeachments — including one that is still unconstitutionally ongoing, Biden’s hollow calls for unity are both laughable and completely disingenuous. Total and complete B.S.

Well, cheap, basically, bumper stickers and old worn out liberal socialist cliches. Take a look.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: To restore the soul and secure the future of America require so much more than words. It requires the most elusive of all things in a democracy, unity.

REP. MAXINE WATERS, D-CALIF.: This is a bunch of scumbags. That’s what they are.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Those are very strong words, Congresswoman.

WATERS: They’re all organized around making money.

BIDEN: My whole soul is in this, bringing America together, uniting our people, uniting our nation.

HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: You cannot be civil with the political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.

BIDEN: With unity, we can do great things, important things.

DON LEMON, CNN HOST: The president is a racist and he is a demagogue. That is just a fact.

BIDEN: For without unity, there is no peace, only bitterness and fury.

REP. JERROLD NADLER, D-N.Y.: This administration is behaving like a bunch of thugs and gangsters.

BIDEN: We must end this uncivil war.

REP. NANCY PELOSI, D-CALIF., SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE: And, sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with their allies in the Congress of the United States.

BIDEN: We can do this if we open our souls, instead of hardening our hearts.

KATIE COURIC, TV HOST: The question is, how are we going to, really, almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY: You need to be deprogrammed. You are in a cult of Trump. Reeducation camps for you and your children. Send them to PBS torture camp every day for 24 hours a day, after they take your kids away from you.

Now, if Biden truly wanted unity, instead of just words and just cliches, he would’ve started by ending the vitriol in his own party. For example, he could have stopped comparing Republicans to Nazis like he did a week ago.

He could ask his colleagues to stop referring to 75 million peace-loving Trump supporters as domestic terrorists that support insurrection when they absolutely do not. He could call for an end to the unconstitutionally post- presidential impeachment charade. He could also apologize for the Russia hoax and all of those lies, and the Ukrainian impeachment.

Mark my words, this will never happen. Biden and now his radicals in power and his party, they don’t give a rip about unity. Slogans, bumper stickers, flat out lies, and smears continue. That doesn’t matter to the mob and media either.

By the way, Fox News alert, starting at 12:00 noon today, 99 plus percent of the media mob in this country, they officially started what will be pretty much a four years long vacation. The hard-hitting questions will be gone, the combative press conferences over, the investigative reports with one anonymous source after another, that will be a thing of the past. The tingling sensation up and down the media mob’s legs, well, they are throbbing like never before.

Interpreter for the deaf fired for having supported Trump

The New York Post reports that Heather Mewshaw was fired from her job as an interpreter for the deaf due to her having voted for President Trump.

The White House sign language interpreter who was outed as a supporter of former President Donald Trump said Sunday she hasn’t been offered a return engagement since — and blasted critics who attacked her credibility and professionalism.

Heather Mewshaw, who began working as an independent contractor for the White House last year, said she hasn’t been contacted by the Biden administration in the wake of a Time magazine report that revealed she translated speeches for conservative social media groups.

“The goal of my activity — at the White House or with Hands of Liberty — is that it’s all about access,” Mewshaw told The Post.

“The thing is, I was canceled and humiliated publicly and it was unjust and unfair.”

Mewshaw, a 41-year-old married mother of four from Glen Burnie, Md., also said she’s been “harassed” and “intimidated” online for providing American Sign Language translation for the Hands of Liberty Facebook group and its defunct predecessor, Right Side ASL.

Those videos include one featuring former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani that’s titled “What Really Happened On January 6th?” — the day of the deadly storming of the US Capitol by Trump supporters — and another, since removed, that featured controversial Dr. Stella Immanuel, who has promoted treating COVID-19 with hydroxychloroquine, which the FDA has banned for that purpose.

Mewshaw said she doesn’t necessarily agree with everything she translates, but does the volunteer work in response to requests from people who want to see speeches by Republican politicians and other conservative figures translated into ASL.

Her critics, Mewshaw said, “don’t want this content to be interpreted because they don’t believe in it.”

“Deaf people just want a chance to decide for themself what information is out there,” she said.

Mewshaw also claimed there’s a “double standard” for conservative ASL interpreters and pointed to remarks last year by David Cowan, who translated speeches by Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and other GOP state officials after attracting attention for signing a Beyoncé song at the 2019 Atlanta Pride festival.

“To me, it doesn’t matter — Democrat or Republican, gay or straight. I’m there to provide a service and deliver a message to deaf people,” Cowan told Atlanta magazine.

Although she acknowledged being a Trump supporter, Mewshaw said she paid “about $20” to buy a red “Keep America Great” hat for a video titled “Thank You President Trump from the Right Side ASL Team!” that was posted the same day President Biden was inaugurated last month.

Mewshaw said she was upset by images posted online that falsely show her wearing the hat during White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s Jan. 25 briefing.

That marked the first and only time she was hired by the Biden administration after interpreting five briefings for the Trump administration between Nov. 19 and Dec. 15.

Other attacks on Mewshaw included a Change.org petition that’s garnered nearly 9,000 signatures and a since-deleted tweet by deaf model and actor Nyle DiMarco, who wrote, “Imagine what harm she could cause..,literally holding the message in her hands.”

Opposite-land in regard to Twitter and free speech

Twitter says Trump ban is permanent – even if he runs for office again

The Guardian reports that Twitter has made its banning of Donald Trump permanent (even if he runs for president again).

Donald Trump’s ban from the social media platform Twitter is going to stick even if he runs for the White House again – and even if he won again, a senior executive said on Wednesday.

The former president’s permanent block from Twitter is permanent, Twitter’s chief financial officer, Ned Segal, said during an interview on CNBC when he was asked whether Trump’s tweeting privileges could be restored if he ever returns to power.

“The way our policies work, when you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform,” Segal said.

He added: “Whether you’re a commentator, you’re a CFO, or you are a former or current public official. Remember, our policies are designed to make sure that people are not inciting violence, and if anybody does that, we have to remove them from the service and our policies don’t allow people to come back.”

The news came as Trump’s impeachment trial is taking place in the Senate, on a charge that he incited an insurrection with his inflammatory exhortations at a rally in Washington immediately before the breach of the US Capitol by a murderous mob on 6 January.

When he was impeached last year, he tweeted criticism throughout, although then, and now, he declined to appear at the trial in his own defense.

This time around, with Trump’s Twitter account having fallen silent, the impeachment trial is proceeding without such online heckling.

Twitter Safety refuses to block anarchists in India

opIndia comments on how Twitter put itself above Indian law.

Twitter has decided to brazen it out and put its own rules above Indian laws and refused to withhold or suspend accounts that have been accused of inciting violence in the country. In a series of tweets and a blog, Twitter tried to explain its stand on not taking action against provocative tweets by certain verified individuals.

Twitter cited freedom of speech and expression as per the Indian Constitution for news media entities, journalists, activists and politicians for refusing to take action against the offending accounts.

How can Twitter consider themselves an advocate for free speech after banning who knows how many conservatives?

This business of their continuing “to advocate for the right of free expression” never started. Because they only advocate for only leftist speech (just as any group that only advocates for only conservative speech), they do not advocate for free speech.

Reasons for special counsels investigating Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, …


Is Joe Biden connected to the federal investigation of Hunter Biden’s deals in Ukraine and China?

The Christian Broadcasting Network delves into the connection between Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and the various deals between Ukraine, China, and the Bidens.

bidens cash 1bAs Joe Biden is preparing to assume the presidency on January 20, an ongoing federal investigation into his family’s business dealings will follow him. Although it’s his son, Hunter, under investigation, there are new questions about what the elder Biden knew and when he knew it.

The investigation of Hunter Biden was first initiated in 2018 as a money-laundering probe but has now morphed into much more including business dealings in China and potential violations of tax laws from earnings in Ukraine. It’s also expanded to include his uncle James Biden.

Last week, Hunter Biden announced that he is under investigation for possible tax fraud. Reports indicate the allegation stems chiefly from $400,000 in unreported income he received in 2017 while sitting on the board of Ukraine natural gas company Burisma. It was a year Biden reportedly netted $1.2 million in income.

“I take this matter very seriously,” Hunter Biden said in a statement issued by the Biden Transition Team. “But I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”

Biden was given the position at Burisma while his father was vice president and in charge of Ukraine-US affairs. Back in October, the New York Post first reported emails emerging on a laptop in Delaware suggesting Joe Biden had met with a Burisma executive at his son’s behest.

“Did you and your father ever discuss Ukraine?” asked ABC News. “No,” Biden said.

“If your last name wasn’t Biden would you have been asked to be on the board of Burisma?” ABC News pressed. “I don’t know, probably not,” Biden responded.

Former Hunter Biden business associate, Tony Bobulinski, told Fox News that Hunter and his uncle James used their name to also help broker deals with a Chinese company, another subject of the investigation.

“The only qualification they had was the Biden name,” Bobulinski told Fox News.

ABC News reports investigators honing in on the China aspect of the probe are specifically focusing on a 2.8-carat diamond Hunter received in 2017 from Chinese business associate, Ye Jianming, the former head of CEFC China Energy, as well as several multimillion-dollar wire transfers between the two.

Bobulinski says Hunter set up a meeting between him and then Vice President Biden to solicit his help in brokering deals in China.

“There was no other reason for me to be in that bar meeting with Joe Biden than to discuss what I was doing with his family name and then Chinese CEFC,” Bobulinski said.

“Jim Biden sat and Hunter Biden participated in it. They knew exactly what they were doing – they were dealing with a Chinese-owned enterprise run by Chairman Ye, CEFC, that had strong ties to the Chinese Communist Party,” Bobulinski said.

A recently emerged email also coming from that Delaware laptop indicates that in 2017 Hunter asked for extra keys to his Washington, DC office for his “new office mates” including his father and a representative of that same Chinese-owned enterprise.

Again, Joe Biden maintains he had no involvement in his son’s business dealings with China.

“That’s a blatant lie when he states that, that is a blatant lie,” Bobulinski insists.

And there’s another focus of the investigation – Joe Biden’s younger brother James and his role in a bankrupt hospital business in Pennsylvania.

Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson has been investigating the Biden family for more than a year.

“We are finding more and more about how involved not only Hunter Biden was, but James and Joe Biden as well,” Johnson told Fox News. “And he has not been truthful with the American public and it’s about time the press start asking him questions.”

How could Joe Biden not be connected if he needed office space with Hunter and a Chinese emissary?

Then again, this is the press that has forgotten that Joe Biden bragged to the Council on Foreign Relations that he got the prosecutor who was investigating Hunter fired. The press cannot remember this.

Email reveals Hunter asked for key for “office mate” Joe in a space he planned to share with a Chinese emissary

In a 12 December 2020 article in The Sun, we find that Hunter requested that a key be made for Joe Biden at a work space he would share with a Chinese emissary.

OfficeMatesA series of emails sent in 2017 between Hunter Biden and the general manager of a Washington, D.C. building of multiple office suites and embassies, raises questions about the extent of Joe Biden’s knowledge of his family’s Chinese business dealings.

In an email obtained by Daily Caller and dated September 21, 2017, Biden asks House of Sweden property manager Cecilia Browning if he could “please have keys made available for new office mates.”

Those listed include father Joe Biden, step mother Jill Biden, uncle Jim Biden and Gongweng Dong – a man whom Hunter Biden identifies as the “emissary” for Ye Jianming, the chairman of the now-bankrupt Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC.

“[P]lease have keys made available for new office mates: Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Jim Biden, Gongwen Dong (Chairman Ye CEFC emissary),” the email reads.

In the same email, Hunter Biden also requested that a sign be made for his office door reading ‘The Biden Foundation’ and ‘Hudson West (CEFC US).’

Hunter also provided the personal cell phone numbers for his father and uncle, and suggested that Browning’s associate call them “if she insists.”

It is not known whether Joe Biden ever visited his son’s D.C. office.

Hunter Biden also refers to Ye as “my partner”, unaware that just five months the chairman would be detained in China in March of 2018 and accused of bribery.

Ye’s company was declared bankrupt earlier this year amid accusations that it used a complex web of shell companies to facilitate fake transactions.

At the time of the email, Hunter Biden’s company Rosemont Seneca was leasing office space from House of Sweden.

House of Sweden confirmed that Hunter Biden’s company had rented space in the building at the time of the 2017 email, but declined to offer further details.

“House of Sweden is owned and managed by National Property Board Sweden,” general manager Cecilia Browning said in a statement to Fox News.

“We have tenants who rent office space, and it is correct that Rosemont Seneca LLC rented an office at House of Sweden between February 2017 – February 2018.”

Browning added: “However, please note that we do not share information about current and previous tenants.”

The problem is that the American main-stream press wants to either ignore these stories or paint them as “Russian disinformation” until it benefits a Democrat to tell the truth

It seems there are two investigations into Hunter Biden in our own FBI, but Barr hid this from the press so as not to affect the election (shades of Comey).

Do you remember how the opposition research from Christopher Steele, paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign, was used by Obama/Biden administration to target Carter Page and the Trump campaign and administration? If I remember correctly, even after Mueller disproved the Steele dossier, the Democrats used the Steele dossier against Trump.

They better not hold their breaths if they expect different treatment from the Right.

Hunter Biden asks in an email for $10 million from a Chinese Chairman

The Western Journal reports in a 16 December 2020 article how Hunter Biden corresponded with Zhou Runlong of CEFC China Energy, asking for $10 million.

In correspondence in which Hunter Biden sought $10 million for a business venture in China, he included the entire Biden family sending best wishes to the Chinese tycoon from whom he was seeking funding, according to a new report.

Fox News reportedly obtained an email Hunter Biden sent on June 18, 2017, to Zhao Runlong at CEFC China Energy. The email asks Zhao to “translate my letter to Chairman Ye, please extend my warmest best wishes and that I hope to see the Chairman soon.”

Ye Jianming was the founder and chairman of CEFC. According to a September report released by the Senate Homeland Security Committee and Senate Finance Committee, “Ye’s connections to the Communist government are extensive and … has been previous affiliations with the People’s Liberation Army.”

“Based on the information received by the Committees, Ye was also financially connected to Vice President [Joe] Biden’s brother, James Biden. Thus, there exists a vast web of corporate connections and financial transactions between and among the Biden family and Chinese nationals,” the report said.

“I hope my letter finds you well,” Hunter Biden reportedly wrote to Ye. “I regret missing you on your last visit to the United States. Please accept the best wishes from the entire Biden family as well as my partners.”

“We are all hoping to see you here again soon, or in Shanghai,” he wrote.

The letter said Hunter Biden had “concluded the establishment of SinoHawk Holdings” — a Biden-CEFC joint venture — and that a request had been made to “Dong Gongwen [Gongwen Dong] and Director Zang for the funding of the $10 MM USD wire.”

Hunter Biden didn’t report $400K in 2014 Ukrainian income

NewsMax discusses in a 17 December 2020 article how Hunter Biden was told in an email that he did not disclose $400,000 in Burisma income.

Hunter Biden failed to disclose $400,000 in income on his 2014 tax returns from the Ukrainian natural gas company he sat on the board of, according to a 2017 email from his former business partner, reports NBC News.

“In 2014 you joined the Burisma board and we still need to amend your 2014 returns to reflect the unreported Burisma income,” wrote Eric Schwerin.

“That is approximately $400,000 extra so your income in 2014 was closer to $1,247,328.”

NBC obtained the email from Robert Costello, an attorney for Rudy Giuliani, and noted that it “could not independently verify whether the email is authentic and unaltered.”

Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s lawyer, hired legal representation last November as federal prosecutors probed his interactions with two men charged with campaign finance violations. The former New York City mayor also gave Hunter Biden’s laptop to authorities.

Hunter Biden last week said his taxes are under federal investigation. The U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware opened the probe in late 2018, before his father Joe Biden became a presidential candidate. It includes inquiries into potential violations of money laundering and tax laws.

“I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs,” Hunter Biden said in a statement last week. “I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”

Things you need to know about Hunter Biden’s Chinese dealings

The New York Post provides six facts about Hunter Biden’s Chinese dealings. Here are the first two:

The furor over Trump’s call for Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden’s business has brought the spotlight back to the former second family’s international dealings.

While his Ukrainian business is currently receiving most of the attention, Hunter’s dealings in China deserve at least as much scrutiny.

Trained as a lawyer at Yale, Hunter had primarily worked as a lobbyist and consultant. His previous foray into financial services, Paradigm Global Advisors, was linked to Stanford Financial, a multibillion dollar Ponzi scheme.

In 2009, Hunter co-founded a new venture, Rosemont Seneca Partners. Rosemont and Hunter were given extraordinary opportunities in China while his father was vice president. Here are some key facts:

1. Joe Biden met with Hunter’s Chinese partners days before they established a new investment firm.

In December 2013, Hunter landed in Beijing aboard Air Force Two, accompanying his father on an official visit to China. Less than two weeks later, Hunter’s company, Rosemont Seneca, became a partner in a new investment company backed by the state-owned Bank of China.

Christening the new firm Bohai Harvest RST (BHR), the partners set out to raise $1 billion for the new fund.

Representatives of the Biden family have denied any connection between the vice president’s visit and Hunter’s business. However, a BHR representative told The New Yorker earlier this year that Hunter used the opportunity to introduce his father to Chinese private equity executive Jonathan Li, who became CEO of BHR after the deal’s conclusion.

2. BHR is a multibillion-dollar enterprise.

Exceeding their initial fundraising goal, the partners at BHR raised their target to $1.5 billion for the new fund. The company’s website now brags that it manages “over RMB 15 billion” in assets — the equivalent of about $2.1 billion in today’s dollars.

Under the terms of the deal, BHR, in which Hunter’s firm held an equity stake, would be a lead investor in the fund. Other investors include China Development Bank and China’s social security fund.

Just the New York Post‘s first point blows most liberal arguments out of the water

I encourage you to consider all of their points.

2020 Election Investigation:Who is Stealing America?

This video brings up key points that must be addressed:

  1. Why did four swing states (Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia) suspend their counting at once during the early morning hours of the day after Election Day?
  2. How did only Biden benefit from sudden spikes of votes (for example, 141,258 in Michigan at about 4 a.m. on 4 November or 143,386 in Wisconsin at about the same time)?
  3. Why, in all of the swing states in question, was Trump in the lead before the sudden spike of votes?
  4. How is it that Biden received just enough in the spikes of votes to put him about 20,000 votes?
  5. Why did Biden have no coattails for the Senate candidates? Since voters have indicated that they would not vote for a President of one party and a Senator or House member of another, why did most House and Senate states in play go to the Republicans?
  6. Why have whistle blowers that came out telling of ballot tampering been persecuted? Why have USPS employees who testified about being told to back-date ballots fired?
  7. Why were ballot counters kept from doing their jobs? Why were they kicked out? Why were they kept too far back to see the ballots?
  8. How many sworn testimonials are enough? How many affidavits are enough?
  9. Since the officials at the TCF Center placed cardboard over the windows during counting and would not allow poll watchers in, why not throw out all ballots processed at that facility? Obviously, the officials were ignoring election law.
  10. Why not follow the Matt Brainard report on election irregularities?
  11. Once the video on the Georgia ballot counting center came to light, why didn’t that cause a re-evaluation of the vote count? Why not throw out the obviously fraudulent vote?
  12. Once the problems with the Dominion Voting Systems being connected to the Internet were found (along with the other problems, such as procedures known on how to hack DVS machines), why hasn’t that caused the invalidation of those votes (since that violates state and federal laws)?
  13. If (in 2016) Dominion Voting Systems were very easy to hack (according to
    reports on the New York Times and many other main stream outlets), you would think that they still would be easy to hack now (since most systems were purchased before 2010).
  14. And many more points (since I will not steal all of the Epoch Times‘ points of argumentation).

Chinese influence all around


Top Chinese professor boasts of operatives in top of US “core inner circle”

The New York Post points out the words of a prominent Chinese professor who claims that China has people in America who act as influencers.

ChineseProfessorA recently recorded lecture showing a Chinese Communist Party expert explaining how Beijing had “people at the top of America’s core inner circle” has found its way onto the internet in the United States after being censored in China.

The lecture, given by Di Dongsheng, vice dean of the School of International Relations at Renmin University, in late November also included references to President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter and his business dealings in the Communist country.

Speaking about what was pushing the Chinese to accelerate the reopening of their financial sectors, Di made the revelation that Beijing had a rarely discussed advantage in working with the US prior to the Trump administration.

“We know that the Trump administration is in a trade war with us, so why can’t we fix the Trump administration? Why did China and the US used to be able to settle all kinds of issues between 1992 and 2016?” Di asked, going on to answer the question himself.

“I’m going to throw out something maybe a little bit explosive here. It’s just because we have people at the top. We have our old friends who are at the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence,” the top Chinese political scientist continued.

Di added during the lecture that “for the past 30 years, 40 years, we have been utilizing the core power of the United States.”

As for the future of the US-China relationship, Di appeared optimistic about China’s ability to thrive under an incoming President Biden.

“During the US-China trade war, [Wall Street] tried to help, and I know that my friends on the US side told me that they tried to help, but they couldn’t do much. But now we’re seeing Biden was elected, the traditional elite, the political elite, the establishment, they’re very close to Wall Street, so you see that, right?” Di asked the audience, noting that the next administration would likely take a very different stance from that of President Trump.

Di went on to suggest that Hunter Biden, whose business dealings in Ukraine and China have come under scrutiny, received help from the Chinese in his business efforts.

“Trump has been saying that Biden’s son has some sort of global foundation. Have you noticed that? Who helped [Hunter] build the foundations? Got it? There are a lot of deals inside all these,” Di explained.

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe reacted to the video while appearing on Fox News Monday.

It is good that Di mentioned Hunter Biden; otherwise, the press would have ignored this story

Sarcasm alert: since this appeared in America’s most circulated paper, but it attacks a Democrat — the rest of the press feels justified in ignoring the story.

Suspected Chinese spy targeted California Democrats

Axios reports that Democrat Representative Eric Swalwell and other central Democrats have been caught in a “honeypot” Chinese spy trap.

swalwell_fangA suspected Chinese intelligence operative developed extensive ties with local and national politicians, including a U.S. congressman, in what U.S. officials believe was a political intelligence operation run by China’s main civilian spy agency between 2011 and 2015, Axios found in a yearlong investigation.

Why it matters: The alleged operation offers a rare window into how Beijing has tried to gain access to and influence U.S. political circles.

  • While this suspected operative’s activities appear to have ended during the Obama administration, concerns about Beijing’s influence operations have spanned President Trump’s time in office and will continue to be a core focus for U.S. counterintelligence during the Biden administration.

The woman at the center of the operation, a Chinese national named Fang Fang or Christine Fang, targeted up-and-coming local politicians in the Bay Area and across the country who had the potential to make it big on the national stage.

  • Through campaign fundraising, extensive networking, personal charisma, and romantic or sexual relationships with at least two Midwestern mayors, Fang was able to gain proximity to political power, according to current and former U.S. intelligence officials and one former elected official.
  • Even though U.S. officials do not believe Fang received or passed on classified information, the case “was a big deal, because there were some really, really sensitive people that were caught up” in the intelligence network, a current senior U.S. intelligence official said.
  • Private but unclassified information about government officials — such as their habits, preferences, schedules, social networks, and even rumors about them — is a form of political intelligence. Collecting such information is a key part of what foreign intelligence agencies do.

Among the most significant targets of Fang’s efforts was Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.).

  • Fang took part in fundraising activity for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign, according to a Bay Area political operative and a current U.S. intelligence official. Swalwell’s office was directly aware of these activities on its behalf, the political operative said. That same political operative, who witnessed Fang fundraising on Swalwell’s behalf, found no evidence of illegal contributions.
  • Federal Election Commission records don’t indicate Fang herself made donations, which are prohibited from foreign nationals.
  • Fang helped place at least one intern in Swalwell’s office, according to those same two people, and interacted with Swalwell at multiple events over the course of several years.

A statement from Swalwell’s office provided to Axios said: “Rep. Swalwell, long ago, provided information about this person — whom he met more than eight years ago, and whom he hasn’t seen in nearly six years — to the FBI. To protect information that might be classified, he will not participate in your story.”

What happened: Amid a widening counterintelligence probe, federal investigators became so alarmed by Fang’s behavior and activities that around 2015 they alerted Swalwell to their concerns — giving him what is known as a defensive briefing.

  • Swalwell immediately cut off all ties to Fang, according to a current U.S. intelligence official, and he has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
  • Fang left the country unexpectedly in mid-2015 amid the investigation. She did not respond to multiple attempts by Axios to reach her by email and Facebook.

Between the lines: The case demonstrates China’s strategy of cultivating relationships that may take years or even decades to bear fruit. The Chinese Communist Party knows that today’s mayors and city council members are tomorrow’s governors and members of Congress.

  • In the years since the Fang probe, the FBI has prioritized investigations into Chinese influence operations, creating a unit in May 2019 within the bureau solely dedicated to countering Beijing’s activities at the state and local levels. U.S. national security officials believe the threat posed by China has only grown with time.
  • “She was just one of lots of agents,” said a current senior U.S. intelligence official.
  • Beijing “is engaged in a highly sophisticated malign foreign influence campaign,” FBI director Chris Wray said in a July 2020 speech. These efforts involve “subversive, undeclared, criminal, or coercive attempts to sway our government’s policies, distort our country’s public discourse, and undermine confidence in our democratic processes and values,” Wray said.

The FBI declined to comment. The Chinese Embassy in Washington did not respond to a request for comment.

Details: Axios spoke with four current and former U.S. intelligence officials about the case over a period of more than a year. They requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media about the case.

  • Axios also spoke with 22 current and former elected officials, political operatives, and former students who knew Fang personally when she was based in the United States.
The cover: How Fang worked

Illustration: Sarah Grillo/Axios

Fang’s friends and acquaintances said she was in her late 20s or early 30s when she was based in the U.S. and was enrolled as a student at a Bay Area university.

She used political gatherings, civic society conferences, campaign rallies, and campus events to connect with elected officials and other prominent figures, according to U.S. intelligence officials, Bay Area political operatives, former students, and current and former elected officials who knew her.

  • U.S. intelligence officials believed she was overseeing likely unwitting subagents whom she helped place in local political and congressional offices.
  • Fang attended regional conferences for U.S. mayors, which allowed her to grow her network of politicians across the country.
  • She also engaged in sexual or romantic relationships with at least two mayors of Midwestern cities over a period of about three years, according to one U.S. intelligence official and one former elected official.
  • At least two separate sexual interactions with elected officials, including one of these Midwestern mayors, were caught on FBI electronic surveillance of Fang, according to two intelligence officials. Axios was unable to identify or speak to the elected officials.

Between 2011 and 2015, Fang’s activities brought her into contact with many of the Bay Area’s most prominent politicos.

  • She volunteered for Ro Khanna’s unsuccessful 2014 House bid, according to a former campus organizer and social media posts. (Khanna, a Democrat, was elected to the House in 2016.) Khanna’s office said he remembers seeing Fang at several Indian American political gatherings but did not have further contact with her. Khanna’s office said the FBI did not brief him on her activities. Khanna’s 2014 campaign staff said that Fang’s name does not appear in their staff records, though they said that their records do not include all volunteers.

  • Fang helped with a fundraiser for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) in 2013, according to a flyer from the event Fang shared on Facebook. She appeared in photos over multiple years with a host of California politicians, including Khanna, Swalwell, Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) and then-Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.).
  • Gabbard “has no recollection of ever meeting or talking with her, nor any recollection of her playing a major role at the fundraiser,” a spokesperson said in an email to Axios.
  • Fremont City Councilmember Raj Salwan, whose name appears on the flyer, told Axios he was unaware of Fang’s role in the event and her name was added to the flyer by other Asian American leaders.
  • Chu’s office said they have no records of Christine Fang. Honda said he had no memory of meeting Fang.

The bottom line: U.S. officials believe Fang’s real reason for being in the U.S was to gather political intelligence and to influence rising U.S. officials on China-related issues.

  • Close relationships between a U.S. elected official and a covert Chinese intelligence operative can provide the Chinese government with opportunities to sway the opinion of key decision-makers.
  • Beijing may aim to influence foreign policy issues directly related to China, or issues closer to home, such as partnering with Chinese companies for local investment — an issue particularly salient among local-level officials such as mayors and city council members.

With Democrats “in bed” with Chinese spies, this flips the Russian and Ukrainian accusations against the President on their head

Although it would be tempting to use the occasion to point out how Democrats compromising themselves with Chinese spies has put America into the peril that was applied against President Trump, we should focus on the corruption that this introduces to our government. With this leverage, China can force policies that benefit it over the American people (something that showed itself too evidently during the Obama years).

Facebook, Google, and Twitter make so much money by going into China (or are being kissy-face with China). So, are you surprised they are pro-China?

We know that Google has helped the Chinese military. Furthermore, Google came out on the short end of the stick in its latest dealings with China; however, it did not pull back from dealing with them.

Facebook has handed data to the Chinese as recently as 2018. Previously in 2016, Facebook built a censorship tool to gain re-entry to China. Additionally, Facebook has depended on a Chinese-funded and Chinese-staffed set of “fact-checking” companies for years.

Twitter worked to push the Chinese agenda even though they are not allowed within the borders of the People’s Republic of China.

Therefore, does it surprise anyone that these social media giants have worked together with Chinese interests to subvert our elections in key cities?

Mark Zuckerberg paying for election operations, vote counting across U.S.

The Washington Times tells us how Facebook paid for the operations in ballot counting centers.

Facebook magnate Mark Zuckerberg and his wife gave a nonprofit $400 million to pay election workers, train poll workers and rent polling locations for the Nov. 3 vote in various states.

The Zuckerbergs’ largesse is an unprecedented private expenditure on a process long held to be an exclusively public operation and has spurred at least nine lawsuits challenging the effort by the Center for Tech and Civil Life.

The donation to the center roughly equals what Congress appropriated to the states in this year’s CARES Act to pay for running elections in 2020 amid the tumult of the COVID-19 pandemic, critics charged.

“We’ve invited billionaires into the counting room and it will undermine the integrity of our elections. It’s unprecedented,” said Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project, an initiative started by the conservative Thomas More Society to defend civil liberties.

“We are headed toward a situation in which Big Tech controls the flow of information and the election process. These are the first things any oligarchy wants to control when it takes power.”

The Center for Tech and Civic Life, which was established in 2015, received $300 million from Mr. Zuckerberg’s wife, Priscilla Chan, on Sept. 1 and then another $100 million on Oct. 13, according to the center‘s press releases.

Among the group’s top directors are three people who were previously cyberspace operatives with the liberal grassroots group New Organizing Institute, according to the nonprofit’s website.

The center did not respond to questions from The Washington Times.

The Zuckerbergs’ second contribution came after nine court challenges in state and federal courts failed at the first level, though eight cases remain active on appeal. The center indicated some of the money will go to lawyers defending their operation.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, whose office filed a lawsuit initially rejected by a district court judge, said private money spent in any amount on elections is “inherently insidious.”

“Irrespective of whether the court rules in our favor or not, we believe it is still illegal and improper for state election officials to take money in the manner they are giving it out,” he said.

Mr. Landry has asked the district court to reconsider its ruling, and he plans to appeal if it is upheld.

He likened the project, which involves “money being sprinkled around the country in an inequitable manner,” to an “invisible hand” that could influence how ballots are collected and counted.

“And we’ve got enough money,” Mr. Landry said of Louisiana’s election apparatus. “If Zuckerberg wants to do this, he should give the money through proper channels so we don’t have corporate boardrooms and billionaires spending the money.”

It is not clear exactly how the money is being spent.

More than 2,100 local election jurisdictions applied for grants that can be used for drive-through voting, poll worker recruitment, hazard pay, training and polling place rental, among other items, according to the website.

The Center for Tech and Civic Life website also says it does not serve partisan interests and is not trying to influence the elections’ outcome.

Mr. Kline contends that is exactly the project’s goal.

One of the complaints says that the group distributed money primarily in grants to Democratic regions. Thus far, that argument has not held up in court and is based on what critics acknowledge is an incomplete picture of how much the group has spent and where it has done so.

A graphic at the group’s website, however, does show heavy grant-giving in traditionally blue areas. A red dot on a U.S. map is used to show each grant application the nonprofit received, and the dots virtually cover Michigan’s mitten and are thickly clustered along the Northeastern seaboard.

The center, which says it trains election workers and seeks to expand voter information, says on its website that more than 80 million voters in 2018 — more than two-thirds of the total ballots cast nationwide — were “served by election officials trained by CTCL.”

The Amistad Project said that through legal pleadings it uncovered correspondence between the group and Cory Mason, the Democratic mayor of Racine, Wisconsin, last April. In it, the the center offers Mr. Mason $100,000 of which $60,000 can be for Racine and the rest spent on getting heavily Democratic areas near Racine to file grant applications.

In Philadelphia, long a Democratic stronghold, money provided by the center is to be used to establish 800 polling places, an increase of 76% from the number of polling places the city had in the primaries, according to an August email sent to the center by Nick Custodio, a deputy commissioner in the Philadelphia election office.

“The number of total ballots cast is expected to be between 730,000 and 800,000,” Mr. Custodio writes in bold, figures that would mark between a 21% and 25% increase from the total number of Philadelphia voters in the 2012 and 2016 elections.

Philadelphia voters traditionally break about 70% to 30% in favor of Democratic candidates, and the city with its former polling places produced some 600,000 votes in the 2012 and 2016 elections. Mr. Trump won Pennsylvania in 2016 by fewer than 45,000 votes.

Mr. Landry said one way the grant money could be used would be to send out prepaid return ballots in heavily Democratic districts around New Orleans, “while some guy in a rural parish still has to buy his 50-cent stamp.”

Admittedly, it was not the Chinese paying for the ballot counting centers, but it was someone very friendly to the Chinese

While having the owner of Facebook pay for ballot counting centers does not exactly equate to Chinese control of those election centers, it does place Chinese-friendly interests in control of those election centers. Likewise, when Google provided outreach efforts across Southern California, there was coordination with Democrats across the area (and, since Google has a Chinese-friendly mind, it naturally promoted the same with Democrats).

Lin Wood: Chinese communists used computer fraud and mail ballot fraud to interfere with our national election

In a 12 November 2020 post, the Gateway Pundit quotes former Trump lawyer Lin Wood in his assertion that the Chinese used computer fraud and mail ballot fraud to meddle in our election.

Earlier today Trump campaign attorney L. Lin Wood posted several tweets on the “Dominion” voter fraud scandal.

We reported on this earlier.

Later today lawyer Lucian Lincoln “Lin” Wood Jr., joined Howie Carr to discuss his voter fraud work for the Trump campaign in Georgia.

Lin Wood reassured Howie that Joe Biden will never be President and that he and many others, including the Military-Industrial Complex and the Media, may go to jail for decades of plotting against the Country.

And now tonight Lin Wood blamed the China Communists for the interference in the election.

Communist Timeline:

1. Infiltrate media & local, state & national government officials (ideology, money & extortion). Over 2 decades.

2. Dominion Voting Systems deployed in US prior to 2020 Election. Computer fraud.

3. Unleash biological weapon Covid-19. Mail ballot fraud.

And then Lin Wood attacked the Chinese Communists for interfering in the US election.

Twenty thousand fake licenses mostly from China seized at Chicago O’Hare airport in 2020

A 10 August 2020 article in American Military News pontificates on the many fake drivers licenses confiscated at Chicago O’Hare airport during the first half of the year.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents intercepted 19,888 fraudulent drivers’ licenses at the International Mail Facility (IMF) at Chicago O’Hare International Airport in the first half of 2020 alone.

EditLicense3-1Between the beginning of the year and June 30, officers at the IMF seized 1,513 shipments containing fraudulent documents including 19,888 fake licenses, the CBP indicated in a July 27 press release. CBP said most of the seized documents came from China and were bound for neighboring states.

In addition to shipments from China and Hong Kong, license shipments also came from South Korea and Great Britain.

CBP noted some of the fake licenses going through the IMF facility, bound for Michigan, actually had working bar code strips.

“These counterfeit driver’s licenses can lead to disastrous consequences,” Ralph Piccirilli, Acting Area Port Director, Chicago said in a statement accompanying the CBP press release. “Criminal organizations use these counterfeit IDs to avoid attracting attention to their illegal activities. Our CBP officers were able to identify these very realistic counterfeits and stop them from reaching their destinations.”

The CBP press release similarly warned, “These fraudulent identity documents can lead to identity theft, worksite enforcement, critical infrastructure protection, fraud linked to immigration-related crimes such as human smuggling and human trafficking, and these documents can be used by those individuals associated with terrorism to minimize scrutiny from travel screening measures.”

CBP said most of the licenses were for college students and that some licenses included the same picture but would have different biographical data.

Dallas-Fort Worth CBP Port Director Timothy Lemaux further warned, in a statement reported by Fox News, that those seeking a fake license are sharing their personal information with a “criminal element.”

If Chinese were shipping 20,000 fake drivers licenses into the USA, they might have been working to support massive voter fraud

Although the Chinese could use these licenses in multiple criminal enterprises, one that they could readily use it in is the fraudulent voting in an American election.

Social media’s preemptive spiking of New York Post story shows bias for Chinese communism

With a hat tip to the PA Pundits, The Washington Times originally explained how the censorship by the social media giants again showed a bias against conservatism. However, while quoting Ms. James’ whole article, I feel it could be a bias for Chinese communism.

Twitter and Facebook are quickly backpedaling after suppressing a New York Post story damaging to former Vice President Joe Biden, but that doesn’t erase the fact that just weeks before an election, the social media platforms continue to enforce their rules differently for those with whom they disagree politically.

When the Post published a story last week that Mr. Biden’s son, Hunter, allegedly made money from providing access to his father when he was vice president, it seemed like Twitter and Facebook all of a sudden “got religion,” as we say in the South. The platforms said they spiked the story because it contained links to documents — allegedly from Hunter Biden’s personal computer — that they claimed might have been hacked or illegally obtained or that the story might be outright disinformation.

Boy, that’s a great standard to have, but it’s funny how they didn’t seem to have that same standard when it came to left-wing news outlets reporting on near-daily anonymous leaks from within the federal government and other stories that would seemingly fall under the same rules.

In particular, Twitter’s excuses for taking down the Post link and blocking anyone who shared it just didn’t hold water.

The problem with the excuse that the article may have violated policies against sharing hacked material is that, so far, there’s no evidence the emails were hacked or otherwise illegally obtained. In fact, neither Joe Biden nor Hunter Biden claimed Hunter was hacked, nor did they dispute the facts of the reporting. The Post reported that the computer was turned over to a computer shop for repairs and never claimed, which meant it became the property of the shop owner.

The other problem with that excuse is that Twitter allows hacked information from WikiLeaks and other sources all the time.

Even if down the road it turns out the Post was fed disinformation or the information was hacked, Twitter and Facebook preemptively took down the story before anyone could offer proof it wasn’t true. Have Twitter and Facebook preemptively taken down stories from The New York Times, The Washington Post, BuzzFeed or others?

Twitter also claimed that its concerns about the article were due to the “lack of authoritative reporting” from the New York Post. Although it has a conservative bent, the Post is one of the largest mainstream newspapers in the country. Again, has Twitter expressed concern about the lack of authoritative reporting from The New York Times, The Washington Post, BuzzFeed or others?

Clearly, there is bias here.

The Heritage Foundation has seen firsthand how Big Tech companies ​block or otherwise limit the reach of our own content — even medical information provided by licensed doctors — because that information doesn’t agree with certain platforms’ social or political agendas. They do it through politicized fact-checks, contrived labels, removing posts, or even blocking users.

We’ve also seen how just last week, Amazon Prime’s streaming service announced that it won’t carry conservative Shelby Steele’s new documentary, “What Killed Michael Brown?” The film examines the left’s use of a false racial narrative after Michael Brown’s 2014 death to divide a nation, setting off riots in Ferguson, Missouri, and around the country. While the film is timely and informative, the narrative it debunks is the very narrative that Amazon and many in Big Tech have been promoting.

One can certainly understand that Twitter and Facebook and other platforms have rules to protect users, to prevent the spread of false information and foreign propaganda, and to otherwise provide a safe user experience. But they have politicized these rules, and the evidence continues to mount that their application of these rules is dependent on whether they agree with the user’s political viewpoint. The result is a collapse in public trust and a significant impact on the American electoral process.

According to recent polling by Pew, an astounding 72% of Americans think it’s likely that “social media platforms actively censor political views that those companies find objectionable.” While 85% of those on the political right believe this bias is real, 62% of those on the left also share this concern.

Regardless of one’s political views, the suppression of a major news story from a reputable news outlet is very troubling.

Of course, any bias in favor of liberals also benefits communists

If you read the first three articles, you might have noticed a link between Democrats and Chinese interests.

Black Lives Matter receives support from the Chinese

The Diplomat informs us in a 30 June 2020 article of how China may be stepping over the line by funding Black Lives Matter.

While it is questionable whether the Chinese government genuinely cares about universal human rights and racial equality, its propaganda apparatus has seemingly become an active “supporter” of the global Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement – mostly in the form of lambasting the U.S. government and system. As Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian remarked, “Racism against ethnic minorities in the U.S. is a chronic disease of American society.” In a tweet, another Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Hua Chunying, replied “I can’t breathe,” which has become a rallying cry for BLM, to U.S. State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus’ criticism of Beijing’s Hong Kong policies.

By invoking BLM, Beijing’s recent propaganda campaign hopes to send two messages. First, the United States’ hypocrisy in criticizing China’s human rights conditions. Aiming at both domestic and international audiences, state media such as Xinhua and People’s Daily accused the United States of not facing up to its own issues: “While criticizing China for ending chaos, some U.S. politicians label themselves as beacons of democracy and human rights. Such double standards reveal their hypocrisy driven by ulterior political motives.” Second, Beijing emphasizes the failure of the liberal democratic system as represented by the United States, through which the Chinese political system is portrayed in a more positive light. As remarked by China expert Susan Shirk, the protests will cause fewer Chinese to “voice support for American ideals, such as free markets and civil liberties.”

The BLM movement, along with the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States, offered Beijing a long-needed breakthrough in its failing narrative warfare with Washington. Global criticism over the human rights situation in Xinjiang and Hong Kong has escalated since last year and China’s political system was blamed for the inability to prevent and contain the initial outbreak of the pandemic. China’s nationalist sentiments also played a role in the recent counter-narrative. Global Times editor, Hu Xijin, commented that the attack on the United States reflects “a kind of vengeful feeling, which I think is human nature.”

However, Beijing is crossing a thin line by building narratives on an issue it is inexperienced in dealing with, especially when international propaganda hasn’t been its strong suit in general. In one tweet, Hua Chunying, likely by mistake, wrote “all lives matter” — a slogan commonly used to undermine the BLM movement. Previous unawareness of racial sensitivities has generated backlash for China in cases such as CCTV’s 2018 New Year’s Gala show in 2018, which praised China’s building of railways in Africa in a skit featuring actresses wearing blackface and holding fruit baskets.

More importantly, China’s vocal criticism of minority rights violations in the United States increases the attention drawn to its own ethnic issues and poses the risk of being targeted by the BLM for its own racial discrimination against Blacks. While the People’s Republic of China can rightly say it has never enslaved Black people (although Black slavery was recorded in Imperial China), yet considerable cases of xenophobia directed at people of African descent provide fertile ground for accusations of China being a racist country.

If this act of subterfuge and seeming act of war surprises you, there is more

This is only the beginning of the sneaky things that China will do.

Gordon Chang: China engaged in “an act of war” by enflaming Antifa riots in the U.S.

PJ Media expounds on how China has essentially engaged in an act of war by enflaming Antifa riots in America.

“China certainly wanted to influence the outcome of the election,” Chang said in an interview with American Thought Leaders, a show run by The Epoch Times. “So for instance, during the Democratic Party nomination process, they supported Joe Biden over Bernie Sanders, and during the general election, I think that they were trying to unseat President Trump.”

Chang noted that “there was a massive disinformation campaign conducted especially by the Chinese Foreign Ministry, which is official, and the Global Times, which is the communist Party tabloid. Also, there were the troll and bot farm operations, which were actually quite massive.” He also mentioned the “Spamouflage Dragon” network of Chinese bots that launched ads attacking Trump. Twitter took down 174,000 fake Chinese accounts in June.

“So they really went after the Republican candidate,” Chang noted.

Yet he also mentioned something far more sinister, something he described as “an act of war.” According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the Chinese military, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), based an intelligence unit in the then-open Houston consulate, helping Chinese soldiers to infiltrate American society.

According to a ChinaScope report from August, that PLA unit “sent staff members from a large network company, with fake IDs, to China’s Consulate in Houston. Those technicians used a large video platform’s backend data to identify people who might participate in the Black Lives Matter (BLM) and ANTIFA’s protests and then created and sent them customized videos on how to organize riots and how to do promotions.”

As PJ Media’s Bryan Preston put it at the time, “It sounds an awful lot like the Chinese Communist Party used PLA officers armed with fake Huawei IDs to access TikTok data to target likely protesters in cities around the United States.”

ChinaScope also claimed the PLA officers sent the videos directly to likely protesters and rioters, ostensibly to keep them private from the media or the public at large.

“This was then a nearly undetectable microtargeting engagement from a communist government to like-minded Marxist groups and individuals across the United States,” Preston noted. “The rioters’ goal is not any particular policy outcome, but to subvert and weaken America. Destroying our cities, defunding law enforcement, agitating against ICE, and dividing America along racial lines all support the goal of weakening the United States, which happens to be China’s long-term foreign policy goal.”

Chang agreed with Preston’s assessment, but took it to the next level.

“Also, there’s something else which I think had an effect, although it may not have been directly election-related,” the China expert said. “Radio Free Asia reports that the Chinese military, the Chinese Liberation Army, actually based an intelligence unit in the then-open Houston consulate.”

“From there, they used artificial intelligence and big data to identify Americans likely to participate in antifa and Black Lives Matter protests. And then they sent them videos through TikTok on how to riot,” Chang recounted. “So this went beyond subversion. This was actually an act of war. And because it caused turmoil, it had an effect on the election. As I said, it wasn’t directly related to Beijing’s favorite candidate. But nonetheless, I think that it did ultimately have an effect.”

If China really did incite the summer’s antifa riots — which became the most destructive riots in American history when it comes to property damage — it makes sense to call that an act of subversion and perhaps an act of war. When the United States demanded China close the Houston consulate, Chinese officials started torching piles of documents.

For those who only read Democrat talking points or only watch CNN, here’s some news: COVID-19 came from China

As finally realized by the uber-liberal CNN, the virus called the “Wuhan-virus” by President Trump really did come from China.

A group of frontline medical workers, likely exhausted, stand huddled together on a video-conference call as China’s most powerful man raises his hand in greeting. It is February 10 in Beijing and President Xi Jinping, who for weeks has been absent from public view, is addressing hospital staff in the city of Wuhan as they battle to contain the spread of a still officially unnamed novel coronavirus.

From a secure room about 1,200 kilometers (745 miles) from the epicenter, Xi expressed his condolences to those who have died in the outbreak. He urged greater public communication, as around the world concerns mounted about the potential threat posed by the new disease.

That same day, Chinese authorities reported 2,478 new confirmed cases — raising the total global number to more than 40,000, with fewer than 400 cases occurring outside of mainland China. Yet CNN can now reveal how official documents circulated internally show that this was only part of the picture.

In a report marked “internal document, please keep confidential,” local health authorities in the province of Hubei, where the virus was first detected, list a total of 5,918 newly detected cases on February 10, more than double the official public number of confirmed cases, breaking down the total into a variety of subcategories. This larger figure was never fully revealed at that time, as China’s accounting system seemed, in the tumult of the early weeks of the pandemic, to downplay the severity of the outbreak.

The previously undisclosed figure is among a string of revelations contained within 117 pages of leaked documents from the Hubei Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention, shared with and verified by CNN.

Taken together, the documents amount to the most significant leak from inside China since the beginning of the pandemic and provide the first clear window into what local authorities knew internally and when.

The Chinese government has steadfastly rejected accusations made by the United States and other Western governments that it deliberately concealed information relating to the virus, maintaining that it has been upfront since the beginning of the outbreak. However, though the documents provide no evidence of a deliberate attempt to obfuscate findings, they do reveal numerous inconsistencies in what authorities believed to be happening and what was revealed to the public.

The documents, which cover an incomplete period between October 2019 and April this year, reveal what appears to be an inflexible health care system constrained by top-down bureaucracy and rigid procedures that were ill-equipped to deal with the emerging crisis. At several critical moments in the early phase of the pandemic, the documents show evidence of clear missteps and point to a pattern of institutional failings.

One of the more striking data points concerns the slowness with which local Covid-19 patients were diagnosed. Even as authorities in Hubei presented their handling of the initial outbreak to the public as efficient and transparent, the documents show that local health officials were reliant on flawed testing and reporting mechanisms. A report in the documents from early March says the average time between the onset of symptoms to confirmed diagnosis was 23.3 days, which experts have told CNN would have significantly hampered steps to both monitor and combat the disease.

China has staunchly defended its handling of the outbreak. At a news conference on June 7, China’s State Council released a White Paper saying the Chinese government had always published information related to the epidemic in a “timely, open and transparent fashion.”

“While making an all-out effort to contain the virus, China has also acted with a keen sense of responsibility to humanity, its people, posterity, and the international community. It has provided information on Covid-19 in a thoroughly professional and efficient way. It has released authoritative and detailed information as early as possible on a regular basis, thus effectively responding to public concern and building public consensus,” says the White Paper.

Articles to cheer Conservatives


Texas Sues Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin at Supreme Court over handling the elections not according to the Constitution

Breitbart reports in a 7 December 2020 article that Texas has lodged a lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin due to their allowing the courts and administrators (not the legislature, as required by the Constitution) to change the laws.

Texas-Flag-American-FlagThe State of Texas filed a lawsuit directly with the U.S. Supreme Court shortly before midnight on Monday challenging the election procedures in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin on the grounds that they violate the Constitution.

Texas argues that these states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures. Additionally, Texas argues that there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. Finally, Texas argues that there were “voting irregularities” in these states as a result of the above.

Texas is asking the Supreme Court to order the states to allow their legislatures to appoint their electors. The lawsuit says:

Certain officials in the Defendant States presented the pandemic as the justification for ignoring state laws regarding absentee and mail-in voting. The Defendant States flooded their citizenry with tens of millions of ballot applications and ballots in derogation of statutory controls as to how they are lawfully received, evaluated, and counted. Whether well intentioned or not, these unconstitutional acts had the same uniform effect—they made the 2020 election less secure in the Defendant States. Those changes are inconsistent with relevant state laws and were made by non-legislative entities, without any consent by the state legislatures. The acts of these officials thus directly violated the Constitution.

This case presents a question of law: Did the Defendant States violate the Electors Clause by taking non-legislative actions to change the election rules that would govern the appointment of presidential electors? These non-legislative changes to the Defendant States’ election laws facilitated the casting and counting of ballots in violation of state law, which, in turn, violated the Electors Clause of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution. By these unlawful acts, the Defendant States have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but their actions have also debased the votes of citizens in Plaintiff State and other States that remained loyal to the Constitution.

Texas approached the Supreme Court directly because Article III provides that it is the court of first impression on subjects where it has original jurisdiction, such as disputes between two or more states.

More than the Arizona suit, this keeps four of the six fraud-involved states in play for Trump

More than Kelli Ward’s suit (only when combined with the suit against Pennsylvania), this suit will tie up the electoral college count between Trump and Biden (making it all contested again). Then, without the Congress having to reject the reject the submitted electoral college votes of any state which the Congress believes has such a shoddy election system that you can’t trust the election results, the vote goes to Congress where the House votes for the President and the Senate votes for the Vice President.

No, the Georgia vote-counting video was not “debunked.” Not even close

Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist debunks the lying “debunkers” of the left by outlining the issues with their “debunkings.”

NoFactA Big Tech-backed “fact” “checking” outfit claimed to debunk explosive evidence in support of Republicans’ claims of significant election problems at a Thursday Georgia Senate hearing. It didn’t. Not even close.

Newly discovered security footage from Georgia’s State Farm Arena showed dozens of ballot counters, media, and Republican observers leaving en masse at the same time from the ballot-counting area for Fulton County. After they left, a small remnant of about four workers began pulling trunks containing thousands of ballots from underneath a table with a long tablecloth and running them through machines.

The footage supported claims from Republicans that they were told counting had stopped for the night, only to find out hours later that it had kept going on. You can and should watch the 12-minute portion of the testimony from Jacki Pick here.

On Friday morning, a group called Lead Stories published a “hoax alert” falsely claiming to have debunked the security video. The Washington Post, Newsweek, and other outlets followed along, criticizing non-leftist journalists for giving the video traction. In fact, none of the claims made by the Republicans were debunked.

Lead Stories’ “fact” “check” says government officials told them everything was fine with the counting, that the ballots were in “containers — not suitcases,” and that “party observers were never told to leave because counting was over for the night.”

Leaving aside whether relying solely and uncritically on government officials’ claims constitutes anything close to a “fact” “check,” let’s look at the claim that party observers were never told that counting was over for the night. In Lead Stories’ regurgitation of the government officials’ claims, only the people who cut open the absentee ballot envelopes were sent home, while ballot counters and scanners were retained and kept working — and no one told the press or other observers they were done counting.

Were Republican Poll Watchers and the Media Told Counting Had Stopped For The Night?

Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer has consistently said that’s what happened at State Farm Arena, beginning hours after the election:
ShaferTweet

That claim, which he has repeated consistently, is backed by sworn affidavits from two Republican observers, who further allege they were kept an unreasonable distance from the ballots even while they were at State Farm Arena, making it completely impossible to meaningfully do their jobs. (The video, which shows the room from four different angles, fully supports the claim that poll watchers were kept away from meaningful observation of ballot handling.)

The observers say that they arrived for their observation jobs around 8 p.m. They say in the first half of the 10 o’clock hour, a woman with blonde braids who appeared to be a supervisor “yelled out” to those present in the room that they would stop working for the night and would resume in the morning. The Republican poll watchers said they asked Fulton County Elections Spokesperson Regina Waller questions about the status of the ballot count multiple times but that she refused to answer.

Lead Stories, however, says, “There was never an announcement made to the media and other observers about the counting being over for the night and them needing to leave, according to [Frances Watson, chief investigator for the Georgia Secretary of State], who was provided information by the media liaison, who was present.” While Lead Stories doesn’t name the media liaison, the media liaison who was present that night, according to the affidavits, was Regina Waller, the Fulton County public affairs manager for elections.

OK, so on the one hand you have sworn affidavits from observers saying that supervisors told ballot counters to go home for the evening shortly after 10 p.m. and a video showing everyone leaving en masse at that time. And on the other hand, you have two government officials promising that no one was told that counting was over. Is there any other evidence to consider?

Well, on election night, ABC News reported that ballot counters were sent home at the time that the Republican observers said everyone was told counting had stopped. Their source? Regina Waller:

ABC_tweet_onGeorgia_CountersSentHome

The Republican poll watchers’ story matches this election night reporting perfectly. And it wasn’t just ABC that reported counting was being delayed. Many media outlets reported on counting delays. See, for example, “Fulton County stopped counting absentee ballots for the night.”

Local NBC journalists on site that night independently confirmed “they were told counting was done for the night” and given no indication it would continue before the next morning. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution even reported of a “plan” to stop scanning ballots at the same time the poll watchers said things were shut down:

They planned to stop scanning absentee ballots at 10:30 p.m. and pick it up back in the morning. No official could explain before press time why Fulton was stopping its count of absentee ballots at that time, only saying that was the procedure.

‘As planned, Fulton County will continue to tabulate the remainder of absentee ballots over the next two days. Absentee ballot processing requires that each ballot is opened, signatures verified, and ballots scanned. This is a labor-intensive process that takes longer to tabulate than other forms of voting. Fulton County did not anticipate having all absentee ballots processed on Election Day,’ the county spokeswoman wrote in a statement.

Some debunking there, guys. The video supports the claim from the affiants.

Incidentally, most of the linked stories include mention of a major election day story of a burst pipe delaying vote counting. Some even said it was reportedly a water main.

In a new affidavit, the aforementioned Watson swore, “Our investigation revealed that the incident initially reported as a water leak late in the evening on November 3rd was actually a urinal that had overflowed early in the morning of November 3rd.”

She also said that her investigation shows that the press and observers “simply left on their own,” although she later said workers put ballots underneath the table because they thought that counting was stopping for the evening. “This was done because employees thought that they were done for the night and were closing up and ready to leave,” she claimed.

Was a State Election Board Monitor Present While Partisan Observers Were Gone?

A Newsweek story quoted someone saying that Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office claimed that a designated election observer was “at that spot all night, the entire time.” Lead Stories emphasizes that while partisan observers may not have been present, an “unnamed state election board monitor” was present:

A state election board monitor, who asked for his name not to be used due to safety concerns, told Lead Stories on the phone on December 3, 2020, that he was present at the vote counting location beginning at 11:52 p.m., after leaving briefly at earlier in the evening. He then stayed until about 12:45 a.m., when the work that night was completed.

The deputy chief investigator for the secretary of state’s office was present beginning at 12:15 a.m. November 4, he said.

The monitor only claims to have been present in the processing room from 11:52 p.m. on election night to 12:45 a.m., the following morning, or less than an hour. That means there were neither partisan monitors nor the state election board monitor for more than an hour after ballots began being scanned at 10:35 p.m.

What the “fact” “check” shows, then, is the monitor admitting he wasn’t present for much of the time in question, contrary to claims made by the Secretary of State’s office. For whatever it’s worth, the same monitor is the subject of an affidavit from another witness, devoted exclusively to concerns about the monitor’s conduct prior to the late hours on election day, according to a member of the Trump team. The claims include that he was sleeping on the job and staring at his phone.

Incidentally, Fulton County had such massive problems managing elections earlier this year that they were fined and forced into a settlement agreement that included a requirement that they be independently monitored, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

To avoid the fine, Fulton must maintain verifiable levels of operational competence by properly processing absentee ballots; keeping a force of 2,200 properly trained poll workers; providing at least 24 early voting sites; striving to process 100 voters per hour at any site; having a technical support staff member at every site; and creating a post-election audit.

The consent order also requires Fulton to regularly update the Board on its pool of poll workers.

The issue in the consent order requiring the most negotiation was over an independent elections monitor.

They agreed on Carter Jones, who spent time in Africa helping countries improve their elections…

The U.S. Department of Justice also sent an election monitor to Fulton County.

Contrary to the media impression that a state monitor is sufficient oversight, the press and partisan observers are just as if not more important. The false public claims about a pause in counting led to the departure of the press and Republican observers.

As for the deputy chief investigator who arrived at 12:15 on Nov. 4, when the ballot-scanning activities were nearly completed, the video shows the person entering the large room, glancing around, and talking on his phone. At no point have the “fact” “checkers” or other media figures asked what prompted an investigator to be dispatched to the State Farm Arena at that time.

The Trump legal team, for its part, said the Fulton County situation violated Georgia laws that require election tabulation to be open to public view. The witness affidavits say the denial of meaningful access to the counting process kept Republican observers from being able to actually observe what happened. The Republican observers, the press, and the public were kept to a roped-off area too far from the ballot activity to matter, which doesn’t comply with Georgia law, they say.

There Are Much Bigger Georgia Claims

While conspiracy theories about election fraud abound — ranging from The New York Times’ claim that there was no election fraud anywhere in the entire country to dramatic claims of a global conspiracy involving voting machines, the Trump campaign’s official claims are sober and serious. State Republican Chairman David Shafer and President Donald Trump filed a criminal complaint in state court on Friday regarding tens of thousands of votes that they say were fraudulent.

Trump and Shafer allege, for example, that votes came from:

  • 2,560 felons,
  • 66,247 underage registrants,
  • 2,423 people who were not on the state’s voter rolls,
  • 4,926 voters who had registered in another state after they registered in Georgia, making them ineligible,
  • 395 people who cast votes in another state for the same election,
  • 15,700 voters who had filed national change of address forms without re-registering,
  • 40,279 people who had moved counties without re-registering,
  • 1,043 people who claimed the physical impossibility of a P.O. Box as their address,
  • 98 people who registered after the deadline, and, among others,
  • 10,315 people who were deceased on election day (8,718 of whom had been registered as dead before their votes were accepted).

The lawsuit further alleges that mail-in ballots received nearly no scrutiny as standards for contesting questionable ballots were made unreasonably difficult.

A Note On Lead Stories

The “fact” “check” was originally written by Alan Duke and Hallie Golden, although Golden’s name was removed from later versions of the story. Golden is a freelance writer whose work regularly appears in The Guardian, a left-wing publication. Duke, a CNN entertainment reporter, retired from the left-wing outlet after 26 years.

Earlier versions of the story included a mathematical error about whether the votes that were counted after observers left State Farm Arena could have affected the outcome of the election. The authors falsely wrote that they couldn’t have, when they could have.

A later purported “fact” “check” said it wasn’t true that Republican poll watchers swore affidavits that they were told to leave the center. Lead Stories falsely stated that these claims were the “cornerstone” of Trump’s challenge of Georgia. In fact, the legal claim filed by the Trump team only mentions Fulton County telling the press and other election observers that they were going to stop counting ballots and resume counting in the morning once, on one page of the 64-page complaint.

Again, those claims have been corroborated, not debunked, by multiple press accounts from election night. As for the affidavits, they make the same claim — that Fulton County election officials falsely said they were stopping the count when in reality they were continuing to count through the night after observers left. The affidavits further state that they were unable to get answers to basic questions from officials.

Considering that Facebook, Google, and Twitter are making so much money by going into China (or being kissy-face with China), are you surprised they are pro-China

We know that Google has helped the Chinese military. Likewise, Facebook has handed data to the Chinese as recently as 2018. Finally, Twitter worked to push the Chinese agenda even though they are not allowed within the borders of the People’s Republic of China.

Therefore, does it surprise anyone that these social media giants have worked together with Chinese interests to subvert our elections in key cities?

Arizona Republican chair announced news on fraud lawsuit

In a 7 December 2020 KTAR News article, we find that Kelli Ward has taken her election lawsuit to the Arizona Supreme Court (an action that may strip Biden of his cheating “win.”)

Dr. Kelli Ward, chair of the Arizona Republican Party, is taking her battle to reverse the certified results of the state’s presidential election to the Arizona Supreme Court.

Ward filed a notice of appeal with the state’s highest court late Friday.

The Supreme Court confirmed receipt of the case Monday and said it would decide the matter without oral argument.

The parties were ordered to file simultaneous briefs of no longer than 3,000 words and an appendix with their exhibits by noon Monday.

A Maricopa County Superior Court judge ruled on Friday that Ward failed to prove fraud in her challenge of election results in metro Phoenix and that evidence presented at trial wouldn’t reverse President Donald Trump’s loss.

Earlier Friday, before the dismissal, Ward told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show she would “go to the end to prove” that “President Trump won this election by a landslide in Arizona.”

Ward is pressing ahead after four previous legal challenges to the validity of Arizona’s elections were dismissed.

On Nov. 30, Arizona’s two top-ranking Republican elected officials, Gov. Doug Ducey and Attorney General Mark Brnovich, signed off on Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs’ election certification.

The certified results showed President-elect Joe Biden winning Arizona by more than 10,000 votes to claim the state’s 11 electoral votes. As it stands, Biden will win the presidency by a 306-232 margin when the Electoral College meets on Dec. 14. Biden’s inauguration is set for Jan. 20.

Biden won in Maricopa County, the state’s most-populous region, by more than 45,000 votes in becoming the first Democratic presidential candidate to win Arizona since 1996.

Ward’s lawsuit challenges the validity of certain ballots cast in Maricopa County.

As part of the case, a court-ordered sampling of 1,626 duplicated ballots found that Trump lost seven votes due to errors in ballot processing.

Since 8 December was the safe harbor deadline, unresolved disputes allow Trump to call into dispute the electoral votes of the disputed states

Because Trump has hung in there and gathered many proofs of voter fraud beyond this deadline, it denies Biden his electoral college win and keeps the race in play. Then, without the Congress having to reject the reject the submitted electoral college votes of any state which the Congress believes has such a shoddy election system that you can’t trust the election results, the vote goes to Congress where the House votes for the President and the Senate votes for the Vice President.

Donald Trump, Tony Bobulinski, and the Debate


Donald Trump brings former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski to debate

Breitbart brought up the entry of Tony Bobulinski to the debate audience in a 22 October 2020 article.

President Donald Trump will bring Tony Bobulinski, a former partner of Hunter Biden, to the final presidential debate as a guest, according to reports.

Tony-Bobulinski-Navy-photo-Bobulinski identified himself as the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, a firm he described as “a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family,” according to a statement released Wednesday.

Bobulinski worked with Hunter Biden and confirmed that he described his father as “the Big Guy” or “my Chairman.”

“I don’t have a political ax to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned with what I saw,” Bobulinski said in his statement. “The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist-controlled China.”

Since Google is blocking Brietbart, Twitter is blocking the New York Post, and Facebook is also blocking the New York Post, President Trump’s mention of the scandal will introduce this scandal to many voters across America

As the National Public Radio editor demonstrated, liberal news organizations (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and others) have been suppressing the news of the Biden corruption just as much as the social media giants.

Therefore, when President Trump mentioned the scandal in the debate, when he brought Tony Bobulinski, he introduced a chance for people to look up the truth.

Ex-business partner of Hunter Biden to release papers

Townhall comments on the promise of Tony Bobulinski to release papers.

TrumpBiden

Hunter Biden’s former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, will be at the second debate tonight. He’s also turning over electronic devices and records of the business dealings he was part of when involved with the Biden family. There have been growing concerns from those who actually care about national security and rooting out corruption, that the former vice president was using the office to enrich his family. He also knew about it. That’s the hook here. Joe Biden has been caught in a lie about not knowing what Hunter was up to regarding these shady deals. In fact, in some cases, Hunter called his father the “chairman” and sought to get personal approval to sign off on certain ventures.

Bobulinski was the person who confirmed the email regarding a business proposition to a Chinese energy firm was real, where an equity arrangement drafted by Hunter has someone called “big guy” slated to get 10 percent. He said “big guy” is former VP Joe Biden.

The New York Post set off this firestorm when they obtained the emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop. It has been confirmed these communications are real and not part of a Russian disinformation campaign. Hunter dropped off this device at a repair shop in Delaware in April of 2019. He forgot to pick it up. the owner then copied the hard drive, gave one to Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer, and turned the device over to the FBI. If it’s not a story, then why is the press avoiding it like the plague. Also, Twitter and Facebook moved quickly to censor it, drawing more attention to the story.




Biden knew what his son was up to; that’s the point. This was part of the Biden web of corruption, where he enriches his family from the pulls of his office to avoid those pesky financial disclosure forms. Rest assured, it sounds like plenty of money pies were baking for the Biden clan. It circles back the Burisma story, where Hunter Biden sat on the board of this Ukrainian energy company in 2014, making $50k/month, and reportedly selling access to top Obama officials. Joe was introduced to the key figures of the company and got leaked access to an Obama White House conference call.

If any undecided independents look at this evidence and if they are swayed by logic (not the emotion for the poor, demented guy), this should sway them

Since proofs are floating out there that Hunter received as much as $80K/month, if you add all of these proofs up, then it fairly conclusively proves the financial corruption of the Biden clan.

Bobulinski text messages show Joe Biden met with Chinese

Townhall comments on the Tony Bobulinski text messages that show Joe Biden met with Chinese energy company officials.

New text messages show Joe Biden lied when he said he never discussed his unqualified son Hunter Biden’s overseas business activities. Joe Biden appears to have done much more than that. In fact, the new text messages indicate the former vice president not only participated in a meeting with Hunter’s business partners but further establishes that Joe Biden received financial arrangments shortly after doing so.

The new text messages were provided by Tony Bobulinski, a retired U.S. Navy lieutenant and former Biden family business associate turned whistleblower. Bobulinksi will be President Trump’s special guest at Thursday night’s presidential debate.

Fox News first reported text messages regarding a meeting in May 2017 between former Vice President Joe Biden and business partners of Hunter and Jim Biden, the former vice president’s brother. The meeting arrangements reference Chinese legal documents, reportedly in connection with Chairman Ye and the CEFC China Energy Company. The text messages, laid out clearly by The Federalist’s Sean Davis, suggest the meeting not only took place but that Joe Biden was made the recipient of financial arrangements a few days later.



Davis also notes the email sent 10 days after the May 2017 meeting detailing financial compensation arrangements, including “10 held by H[unter] for the big guy.”

Four bits of bad news for Hunter Biden and Sleepy Joe


A former partner flips on him and confirms the emails to be authehtic

Hunter Biden business partner confirms authenticity of email about deal With Chinese company

The Daily Caller points out how a central email has been verified by one of his former business associates.

One of the recipients on an email chain with Hunter Biden that was published earlier this week has authenticated the document, Fox News reported.

The email in question, which is dated March 13, 2017, purportedly shows a business partner of Biden’s discussing “remuneration packages” for participants in a deal involving CEFC China Energy, a Chinese energy company that was owned at the time by Ye Jianming.

New York Post HB
New York Post published the Hunter Biden email

The New York Post published portions of the email on Thursday as part of a series of stories based on documents purportedly from Biden’s laptop.

Some Democrats have questioned the authenticity of emails published by the Post. But according to Fox News, a person copied on the March 13, 2017, email confirmed that the published document is authentic.

Fox News did not identify which of the people on the email thread confirmed its authenticity. The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to everyone on the thread but did not receive any responses.

Hunter Biden is identified as “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC” in the email. It also says that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.”

The author of the email also included a proposed breakdown of payments, including “20” for “H” and the notation: “10 held by H for the big guy?”

According to Fox News, sources said that “the big guy” is a reference to Joe Biden.

The Biden campaign and Hunter Biden have not disputed the authenticity of the emails released so far. Instead, they have dismissed the publication of the documents as a smear campaign orchestrated by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Some Democrats have alleged that the Russian government may have a hand in obtaining or releasing the emails, but the Biden campaign and Hunter Biden have not disputed the story about how he obtained the laptop.

Giuliani claims he obtained the Biden documents from John Paul Mac Isaac, who owns the Mac Shop in Wilmington. Giuliani provided copies of the emails to the Post on Sunday.

Isaac told the newspaper that a man he believes to be Hunter Biden dropped off his computer for repair in April 2019 but never came back to retrieve it. He has said that he notified the FBI through an intermediary about the computer late last year, and that the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware subpoenaed the device in December.

Isaac said he made copies of the computer hard drive before handing the computer over to authorities. He has also said he contacted various senators about the computer but did not receive a response. He contacted a lawyer for Giuliani last month, he claims.

Giuliani has been investigating the Bidens’ various business dealings since at least 2018. He met several times beginning last year with Arkady Derkach, a Ukrainian member of parliament who the U.S. sanctioned last month because of his links to Russia.

Multiple points of confirmation on this news show this not to be Russian collusion

No matter what Adam Schiff and the Democrat media say, with multiple points of confirmation (the FBI, the computer shop owner, the former business partners of Biden, and the investigative reporters at the New York Post) point toward this not being Russian collusion.

Since the computer shop owner has produced Hunter Biden’s signature on the form filled out when the computer was left for repair (and never recovered, despite attempts by the shop owner to get payment), we know that this computer belonged to Hunter Biden. Additionally, due to the problem of replicating the travels, photos, videos, and communications of Hunter Biden, we can rely on Ockham’s Razor (the rule that tells us that the simplest explanation usually is the correct one) to find that we have the computer of a drug-addled man-child who used his father’s position to gain money from foreign governments (money which he split with his father 50-50).

Hunter Biden’s flipped business partner provided 26,000 emails

Breitbart reports that Hunter Biden’s business partner became a major source of emails.

The business partner of Hunter Biden who flipped on the Biden family from prison provided access to 26,000 emails, Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer said in a Saturday morning radio appearance.

Schweizer, appearing on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel, said that former Hunter Biden business partner Bevan Cooney provided 26,000 emails to him—the first of which were published late last week in a Breitbart News exclusive investigation by Schweizer and author Seamus Bruner. Cooney is currently serving a sentence in federal prison due to his conviction over financial deals he made connected to Hunter Biden and his other partner Devon Archer. Archer, who was also convicted by a jury in federal court, saw his conviction vacated by a federal judge. That conviction was later—just a couple weeks ago—reinstated by an appellate court, which overruled the lower court judge’s decision to vacate it. Archer awaits sentencing.

In the meantime, however, Cooney—who is serving his sentence in federal prison—reached out to Schweizer via conservative journalist Matthew Tyrmand and provided written authorization to access his Gmail account. He provided the password and username, and written authorization to publish emails because Schweizer says he believes he was the “fall guy” for the Biden family’s corruption and that he believes the public needs to know what really happened in Hunter Biden’s universe. The first article on these emails was published Friday afternoon, and detailed how Hunter Biden and his partners secured meetings with senior White House officials in November 2011 for Chinese Communist elites—including, as the Chinese elites who were present revealed, a secret meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden himself. The Biden campaign has not responded to requests for comment about this from Breitbart News.

“Bevan Cooney was business partners with Hunter Biden and Devon Archer,” Schweizer said on Breitbart News Saturday. “He was a nightclub owner—he owns the Viper Room in Los Angeles, and got involved in these financial deals. He ended up going to jail and really feels that he was the fall guy. Devon Archer is now going to be going to jail as well, because of the same deals, but he [Cooney] really feels like Hunter Biden was able to walk off scot-free. He had reached out to me in 2019 after my book Secret Empires came out in 2018. He talked about sharing his emails, but it never happened. He ended up going to jail. He recently reached out through Matt Tyrmand, a journalist, and said I want to give you access to all of my emails in my Gmail account. He gave us written approval to do that, and gave us the password. We have been going through the 26,000 emails. The article that we ran on Breitbart, about China, Inc., is the first of what are going to be several. In this particular story what we lay out is how Hunter Biden and his business partners set up a meeting for this group called the China Entrepreneurs Club. Don’t let that benign name fool you; this is regarded as joined at the hip with the Chinese communist government. This China Entrepreneurs Club wanted meeting at the highest levels of the White House and Hunter Biden arranged them. What’s very curious about this is not only that they got these meetings on November 14, 2011, but they actually, according to members, had a private, secret meeting with Joe Biden himself. We don’t know about this because it appeared on the White House visitors logs or the White House calendar—it doesn’t. We know about it because the Chinese that were on that trip bragged about it in their blog posts back in China that they had this private, secret meeting with Joe Biden. Out of that sprang relationships and business deals that Hunter Biden and his business partners were apparently able to take advantage of, so it demonstrates how this access, with the participation of Joe Biden, translated into commercial deals down the road.”

Photo: Joe and Hunter Biden shown in golf outing with Ukraine energy company board member in 2014

Breitbart reports in a 1 October 2019 article something that would be impossible if Joe Biden were telling the truth about never having met with Hunter’s associates.

joe-hunter-biden-ukraine-golf-640x480A newly-unearthed photo shows former Vice President Joe Biden and son Hunter sharing a round of golf with Devon Archer, who sat on the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings alongside Hunter.

The photo, first obtained by the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, is believed to have been taken at the Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton, New York in 2014. Both Hunter Biden and Archer joined Burisma Holdings as board members in April 2014.

Never mind that the photo is six years old and the story is over a year old

No matter how old any of the elements of the story are, it proves that Joe Biden has been lying to us.

Hunter Biden was on the payroll of a credit card company that benefited from a 2005 bill pushed by his dad

Breitbart reports in a 20 October 2020 article on what seems very much to be something like illegal payments to a governmental official.

Hunter Biden got a five-year gig starting in 2001 worth at least half a million dollars with credit card company MBNA Corporation when his-then U.S. senator father, Joe, was pushing for passage of bankruptcy legislation that ended up benefiting his son’s employer.

After it became law in 2005, the year that Hunter’s work for MBNA ended, the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act made it difficult for Americans to get rid of credit card and student aid debt when declaring bankruptcy.

The bill pushed by now Democrat presidential nominee Biden ultimately helped the MBNA Corporation, one of the largest members of the credit card industry at the time, and reportedly helped fuel the student debt problem. It made private student loans one of the ten debts that cannot be forgiven during bankruptcy.

Recalling the arrangement between then-Sen. Joe Biden’s (D-DE) son and MBNA, the largest employer in Deleware when the bill became law, the New York Times suggested in 2008 that Hunter’s five-year (2001-2005) consulting job with the corporation created a potential conflict of interest for his father. Still, aides to then-Sen. Barack Obama’s (D-IL) presidential campaign in 2008 defended the Delaware-based MBNA’s $100,000 a year retainer paid to Hunter, who was 31 when he got the job, the newspaper added.

The aides did admit it was “one of the most sensitive issues they examined while vetting the [Delaware] senator for a spot on the ticket,” the Times reported in its 2008 article, adding:

Mr. Biden’s son, Hunter, received consulting fees from the MBNA Corporation from 2001 to 2005 for work on online banking issues. Aides to Mr. Obama … would not say how much the younger Mr. Biden, who works as both a lawyer and lobbyist in Washington, had received, though a company official had once described him as having a $100,000 a year retainer. But Obama aides said he had never lobbied for MBNA and that there was nothing improper about the payments.

Joe reportedly denied any wrongdoing linked to his son’s business dealings with MBNA, the Times pointed out.

Citing the Obama campaign aides, the newspaper reported in 2008:

Senator Biden’s goal was always to strike a workable compromise between the competing interests on the bankruptcy bill, and that he was not influenced by his son’s work for MBNA or the campaign donations.

Hunter’s work for MBNA while his father was writing and promoting the bankruptcy bill in the early 2000s did not become public until the law passed in 2005, Breitbart News recalled.

So the Democrat press ignores the Biden corruption in Ukraine, Iraq, and China

Just as they ignored the Biden corruption with credit card companies in 2008

News important to Christians around the world


Chinese government to Christian Chinese poor: abandon Christ or starve

The Christian Broadcasting Network outlines how Christians have been told to abandon Christ or starve.

In the Chinese government’s continuing persecution of Christians, poor families are now being told to renounce their faith or lose welfare benefits.

Bitter Winter reports that the Chinese economy has been deeply affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, especially low-income households struggling to make ends meet.

Now government officials are ordering Christians who receive welfare payments to replace crosses, religious symbols, and images inside their homes with portraits of China’s communist leaders.

“All impoverished households in the town were told to display Mao Zedong images,” a local pastor told Bitter Winter. “The government is trying to eliminate our belief and wants to become God instead of Jesus.”

A church member in one of the villages recalled how authorities entered his home and destroyed a calendar with an image of Jesus on it, then replaced it was a portrait of Mao instead.

“Impoverished religious households can’t receive money from the state for nothing—they must obey the Communist Party for the money they receive,” he explained.

Enforcing the new regulation started several months ago across China.

In April, the government of Xinyu city in the southeastern province of Jiangxi withheld a disabled Christian’s funds (about $14) if the believer continued to attend worship services.

And in Jiangxi’s Poyang county, an elderly Christian woman was taken off the government’s aid list because she said “Thank God” after receiving her monthly check (about $28).

In May, a government official in the eastern province of Shandong barged into the home of a Christian and posted portraits of Mao and President Xi Jinping, then said, “These are the greatest gods. If you want to worship somebody, they are the ones.”

Another elderly woman from Henan’s Shangqiu city lost her welfare benefits in April after officials found a cross displayed on her house door.

“They tore it down immediately,” the Christian said. “Afterward, both my minimum living allowance and poverty alleviation subsidy were canceled. I am being driven to a dead end. I have diabetes and need injections regularly.”

Earlier this year, the communist regime began removing crosses from churches throughout China and now portraits of Mao and Xi have replaced images of the Holy Spirit.

Although I also stand against the persecution of the Uighur Muslims, this persecution of Christians seems to be some of the least reported

Go to the ABC or CBS or NBC web site and search for news on the denial of benefits to Christian Chinese. You will not find one story among any of these “news” sites that addresses this story.

While I must tip my hat to NBC News for reporting on the jailing of a Chinese pastor, the nationwide crackdown on Christian churches, and the struggle between Chinese Christians and their police over the removal of crosses from their church, none of the sites cover the denial of food benefits to the Christian poor.

On the other hand, if you search the CBS site on the term “Uighur” alone, you will get a list of 157 articles. At the ABC site, you will get 182 articles. At NBC, you will get 728 results.

This accentuates the need that Christians have to get news sources outside of the main stream news. Additionally, this shows the need for Christians to support one another and not depend on the governmental “safety nets,” since we are told:

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; (Romans 12:10 NASB)

Russia’s COVID crisis unable to deter the gospel

OneNewsNow points out how Russia’s coronavirus crisis did not deter the gospel.

A U.S.-based mission group has delivered more than half a million meals and the gospel message to afflicted families across Russia and surrounding countries as the coronavirus crisis continues.

Russia has moved past Spain to become the third-leading nation in coronavirus cases, trailing the United States and Brazil. Since launching its “Christ Over COVID” international campaign, the Slavic Gospel Association (SGA) – which serves Russia and nations formerly of the Soviet Union – has already served 500,000 meals to Russians and former Soviets, with Russia’s COVID-19 infections topping 430,000 and total deaths reaching past 5,200.

Christ filling the need and the void

As new coronavirus infections skyrocket, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin is very concerned that a quarter of a million people could now be infected in the nation’s capital alone, and he has dispatched crews to spray disinfectant over the streets to curb its spread as a desperate measure.

SGA, which is based in Illinois, partners with a grassroots network of 6,350 evangelical churches in the former Soviet Union to serve needy widows, orphans and families. The mission group’s president, Michael Johnson, realizes the dire need now to share God’s provisions and gospel message of hope and love.

“It’s reached a critical point,” Johnson warns in a press release. “Much of the region remains in a state of lockdown, and people are getting desperate as food supplies run low.”

In contrast to the U.S., many remote rural communities across the vast nation spanning two continents are being hard-hit due to minimal infrastructure and little to no help from the government.

“In many areas, the local church is the safety net,” the Christian leader explains. “There’s no other help.”

Extending the long arm of God

In order to increase awareness of Russia’s escalating crisis and draw prayer and aid for those afflicted by the pandemic, SGA’s Christ Over COVID campaign is looking far and wide while partnering with the Body of Christ overseas.

“Working directly with local evangelical churches from Eastern Europe to the Bering Strait off the coast of Alaska – a distance of 4,170 miles – SGA is delivering critical food aid to the exact point of need, even to isolated villages above the Arctic Circle,” SGA reports. “For $10, SGA provides food to assist a family for one to two weeks, [and] usually, food is purchased in the community to support local sellers.”

According to Johnson, SGA tries to fill the gap when the government doesn’t step in.

“Our goal is to equip local Christians to help their neighbors in this crisis and show them God’s love in action, as well as through their words,” Johnson shares. “People in the villages are saying, ‘The government doesn’t help us – only your church helps us.'”

Likewise, this article shows the importance of being able to help others

Without the ability to reach out during this time of crisis, it doesn’t seem that as many would have been reached with the good news of Christ. Still, even without the benefit provided by the food, some might have been reached through only the Word. Nonetheless, we are told several things on both of these topics.

and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? (James 2:16 NASB)

So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11 NASB)

The California beach revival brings a beautiful harvest of souls together for worship and baptism

The Christian Broadcasting Network reports that Gavin Newsom’s closing of church buildings has resulted in a beach revival.

A revival is taking place on the sandy shores of Huntington Beach, California where hundreds of people are gathering to worship, pray, and receive salvation.

“Saturate OC” began on July 3 in an effort to share the gospel and spread the good news about the Kingdom of God.

The idea for the seaside evangelical movement started in 2016 when it’s organizers, Parker and Jessi Green had a vision of thousands of people being baptized along the Huntington Beach Pier.

Jessi told The Christian Post that she felt God speak to her in January about a massive movement to take place this year.

“It would be like a threshing floor movement where God was going to start to separate the wheat from the tares,” she said.

Despite Gov. Gavin Newsom’s mandatory closing of churches due to COVID-19, Jessi’s vision was fully revealed, and Saturate OC was underway.

She wrote in a Facebook post, “California just announced this week that the church can’t meet inside – The Good News is that on Friday we declared “The Church has Left The Building.” You cant stop the Kingdom of God!”

The outreach has taken place every Friday during July. Jessi’s goal is to reach 2,000 people who can then go out and disciple to thousands more.

“We believe that these collective evangelism events will activate The Church and Orange County will never be the same,” she wrote. “We are believing for 50+ ministry partners and 2,000 attendees prepared and expectant to lead 50,000 people to salvation.”

Bethel Music’s Sean Feucht told Fox News that the movement reminds him of the Jesus People Movement from the 60s and 70s.

“It’s eerily similar,” Feucht said, “There were protests, racial and social strife. Hippies were getting saved. A movement happened in California and swept across America, and even major news outlets covered it.”

In a video shared on Twitter, Feucht declared that a movement is rising up as people are stepping forward to give their lives to Jesus Christ.

“We just had an amazing time of worship. We are here baptizing people in the Pacific Ocean and God is moving in California, he added. “I know it’s the middle of a global pandemic and things are crazy, but in the midst of it all, God is moving.”

“Thank you Lord for those who said YES tonight at Saturate OC!” Alli Joy Vazquez wrote in a Facebook post. “What a beautiful harvest of souls getting baptized in Jesus name! California for Jesus! The fearless ones are arising with the pure love of God.”

Hopefully, this will backfire on the anti-Christian forces within the Democrat party

Hopefully, shutting Christians out of their churches will backfire on the anti-Christian forces within the Democrat party. This seems to point in that direction.

Federal court blocks Cuomo, de Blasio from restricting outdoor worship after they condoned protests

The Daily Caller reports that a federal court has blocked New York Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio from restricting outdoor worship services after they both promoted the George Floyd protests.

cuomoA federal judge on Friday blocked Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other New York leaders from prohibiting outdoor religious gatherings due to the coronavirus after officials endorsed mass protests.

Judge Gary Sharpe issued a preliminary injunction against Cuomo, Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Attorney General Letitia James forbidding coronavirus-based regulations on outdoor religious ceremonies.

Sharpe’s ruling said the regulations resulted in the “curtailment of fundamental rights without compelling justification,” especially amid leaders’ support for outdoor protests.

The Thomas More Society, which specializes in religious freedom cases, filed the initial lawsuit against the New York leaders June 12.

“We are pleased that Judge Sharpe was able to see through the sham of Governor Cuomo’s ‘Social Distancing Protocol’ which went right out the window as soon as he and Mayor de Blasio saw a mass protest movement they favored taking to the streets by the thousands,” The Thomas More Society wrote in a press release Friday. “Suddenly, the limit on ‘mass gatherings’ was no longer necessary to ‘save lives.’”

“Yet they were continuing to ban high school graduations and other outdoor gatherings exceeding a mere 25 people,” the organization continued. “This decision is an important step toward inhibiting the suddenly emerging trend of exercising absolute monarchy on pretext of public health.  What this kind of regime really meant in practice is freedom for me, but not for thee.”

Sharpe’s order quotes Cuomo’s statement that the protests were okay to continue. The protests following the death of George Floyd who died after a police officer knelt on his neck for over eight minutes, a video of the incident showed.

“Protest. Just be smart about it,” Cuomo said during a June 1 press conference, according to injunction. “With this virus, you can do many things now as long as you’re smart about it, right? You can reopen, you can go into a store and you can do a lot of things, just be smart.”

Cuomo did not apply the same logic to religious ceremonies, according to the injunction, as Executive Order 202.10 forbade religious gatherings, despite being smaller than most Floyd protests.

Although there does not seem to be consistency between federal courts, hopefully this will stretch over to other areas

Hopefully, this will be applied against some of Gavin Newsom’s orders, too.

California church files lawsuit against state restrictions on houses of worship, claims ban targets in-home Bible studies

Disrn reports that a California church has filed suit against Governor Newsom over his ban on in-home Bible studies.

openbiblesA California church is suing the state over its restrictions on houses of worship, claiming the ban against in-person religious gatherings unlawfully targets “in-home Bible studies.”

Liberty Counsel filed a lawsuit Saturday on behalf of Harvest Rock Church in Pasadena and its associated organization, Harvest International Ministry.

The suit contends that even though the church requires masks, takes temperatures, and requires social distancing, the state has violated the church’s constitutionally protected freedoms by imposing a “total prohibition” on religious activities.

“While the Governor has unilaterally and significantly restricted the number of individuals permitted to ‘gather’ in Plaintiffs’ churches, he has imposed no similar restrictions on the untold thousands of protesters who have gathered all throughout California cities with no threat of criminal sanction, and no social distancing or restrictions whatsoever.” the lawsuit says. “And, the Governor explicitly encouraged such large gatherings of protesters while condemning churches for singing hymns in their churches.”

Additionally, the lawsuit specifically mentions the state’s implicit prohibition on in-home Bible studies.
