Congress-created ‘health’ group pushes gender-switching ‘trauma care’ for kids

The state has no place in the raising of children, except in cases of child abuse when a child might become a ward of the state. But the American government has found its way into your home to assist you in raising your child.

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) came out in support of attempts to switch children’s genders in a statement titled “Gender-Affirming Care is Trauma-Informed Care.” The organization “was created by Congress in 2000 as part of the Children’s Health Act to raise the standard of care and increase access to services for children and families who experience or witness traumatic events.

Less than two months ago, U.S. President Joe Biden claimed that American states had “no right to restrict treatments like hormone blockers or sex change operations for transgender children.” He called any denial of such treatments “outrageous” and “immoral.” Texas Governor Greg Abbott, on the other hand, signed an order that designated giving children hormone therapy to be child abuse. Biden takes it for granted that a child is capable of determining his or her gender identity, a decision that will affect a child throughout his or her entire life. Such a presumption also strips parents of their rights to raise their children. There is a reason why children need adult care and supervision.

If you are of a Judeo-Christian background and adheres to the Genesis verse about “male and female He created them,” your religious rights are also being encroached upon. It is wrong for the state to meddle in the business of families by using the publicly-funded public school system to teach underage children that they can “choose” their gender. Youngsters are ill-equipped to make sound choices for their longterm best interests, even under the best of circumstances.

Since the NCTSN asserts that “gender affirming care is trauma-informed care,” the message is that if parents oppose “gender-affirming” care, the state can deem them to be subjecting their child to “trauma.” Under this model of “healthcare,” there is no consideration of the power of peer pressure among youth, nor of the natural emotional instability of youth as they transition into adulthood. Congress is tightening its grip upon families, trampling the rights of parents, and rejecting a child’s natural need for sound direction and stability. Given the religion of wokeism, an entire generation is at risk.

Children are being used in a dangerous experiment as pharmaceutical companies sell puberty blockers and psychoactive drugs, and trans clinics sprout up everywhere. In Canada, if all doesn’t go as planned,  when you’re 18 or older, you can qualify for help to kill yourself. An egregious Canadian law has been “sanitized” as a “service” called MAID (Medical Assistance In Dying); the law no longer requires “a person’s natural death to be reasonably foreseeable.” Among criteria to qualify for MAID: the patient must “have enduring and intolerable physical or psychological suffering that cannot be alleviated under conditions the person considers acceptable.” Proponents of the spreading euthanasia death cult put a pretty face on death, convincing victims that they are doing it to help them. A recent ad campaign showed “loved ones waving bubble wands next to the ocean, having picnics in the forest with friends and watching a puppet show.” Although the U.S. is not there yet, doctor-assisted suicide is still legal with conditions in ten US states and the District of Columbia, and given woke trends, it likely will not be long before America catches up to Canada. Now there is debate in Canada about offering MAID to underage kids, even babies if they are suffering from a “defect.” The message: just put them (and their parents) out of their misery.

It’s no secret that there is more psychological pain in the transgender community. These kids need rescuing from the woke system.

Data indicate that 82% of transgender individuals have considered killing themselves and 40% have attempted suicide, with suicidality highest among transgender youth.

What society and mainline churches (which are far too quiet on the issue) did not realize early enough is that there is no limit whatsoever to woke madness, or to the lust for money and power at any expense, including the sacrifice of a nation’s children. The proponents of this madness have no respect for the intrinsic value of human life.

Watch this powerful video from a detransitioner:

Given the natural turbulence of youth, brought on by hormones and an innate process of natural separation from parents as they embark on adulthood, it is dangerous to allow transgender indoctrination in schools. The NCTSN document instructs:

Believe and validate youth when they share their gender identities with you by always using and validating the names, pronouns, and identities that youth share with you, even if those change while they are exploring their identities. Many children are aware of their own gender identity as early as 3-5 years old.

Vulnerable kids are in the grip of a range of “experts,” many of whom (including Dr. Rachel Levine) are deeply troubled themselves and are too quick to attribute the cause of a youngster’s difficulties to gender dysphoria. Kids are being taught that their gender is fluid, and they can be whatever gender they want to be, including more than one (“they”). This is a recipe for emotional and physical trauma, both short term and long term. Children who are susceptible to this indoctrination find other kids who are likewise susceptible, and they encourage one another. These children are indoctrinated and backed by the powerful trans lobby and the state. What better way to make a child feel empowered? But it’s only temporary. The manipulative adults behind all this gloss over the fact that youngsters are ruled by short-term emotions. Indoctrinated trans kids are inevitably cut off from communication with nature’s support system: their parents who love them and are invested in them. Parents are deemed to be abusive adversaries of their own children if they attempt to intervene. These kids are little match for adult, seasoned woke propagandists in the media and the state apparatus.

EXCLUSIVE: Katie Hobbs’ Office Threatened County Board With Arrest, Indictment If They Didn’t Certify Results

  • Katie Hobbs’ office threatened Mohave County Supervisors with arrest and prosecution if they failed to certify the results of their elections before the state deadline.
  • Kori Lorick, the State Elections Director and Hobbs’ top deputy, sent multiple emails to the Board warning them of consequences, including the “disenfranchisement of voters.”
  • Mohave was one of several GOP-led counties in Arizona that asked for more time before certifying results to examine election integrity issues.

Democratic Arizona Secretary of State and Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs’ top deputy threatened the Mohave County Board of Supervisors with prosecution if it didn’t certify her election results before a Monday deadline, according to emails and documents reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Arizona State Elections Director Kori Lorick wrote several letters and emails to members of the board, warning them of criminal charges if the refused to certify the results in time. The letters included threats of lawsuits against the members for “nonfeasance,” as well, per the emails.

“The Secretary of State did contact our County and cited A.R.S. Section 16-1010 as a statute that could be used to prosecute [the board] if they did not certify the election,” said Matt Smith, the Mohave County Attorney, to the DCNF. The statute is an Arizona felony statute regarding election officials who “fail to perform their duties” under the law; as a Class 6 felony, upon conviction, it could result in up to two years’ imprisonment.

“The threat of legal action, including personally, came from the Arizona State Elections Director [Kori Lorick],” said the board’s chair-elect, Supervisor Travis Linginfelter. While previous reporting noted that the board’s members were warned of prosecution by their counsel, the board’s members have now stated that the threats came from Lorick, who reports to Hobbs, as well.

“Our office will take all legal action necessary to ensure that Arizona’s voters have their votes counted, including referring the individual supervisors who vote not to certify for criminal enforcement under A.R.S. 16-1010,” Lorick wrote in an email to the board obtained by the DCNF. Governor-elect Hobbs has neither resigned as Secretary of State nor recused herself from election oversight and certification.

Hobbs was elected governor of Arizona on Nov. 8 to succeed term-limited Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, defeating the Republican candidate Kari Lake, who has now sought to contest the election results. Republicans also lost Arizona’s U.S. Senate race, where Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly defeated Republican investor Blake Masters to win a full six-year term.

Lorick’s threat of prosecution was one of several efforts made by Hobbs’ team to force Mohave County to certify its election results before the Nov. 28 state deadline. Republican members of the board, like in other counties in the state, had sought to hold public hearings regarding the validity of voting machines used in their precincts, over concerns that they were not properly approved by the Secretary of State’s office.

Lorick also sent a letter to the board warning that their voters could be “disenfranchised” if they did not certify by the deadline. The letter, obtained exclusively by the DCNF from Lingenfelter, states that the board “has a non-discretionary duty to canvass the returns of the election,” and that a failure to do so “will only serve to disenfranchise that county’s voters,” mirroring her warnings to other GOP-led counties that their votes “may be excluded” from the final tallies, thereby affecting results.

Mohave County was one of several counties seeking more time to review election integrity issues, though it is the only county whose elected representatives are known to have been threatened with arrest. Cochise County, another GOP-led county in the state that has not certified its results, is currently the subject of a lawsuit by Hobbs’ office, though none of their members have reported criminal prosecution.

The Mohave County board eventually certified the results of the election on Monday, Nov. 28, before the deadline expired, though the threat of individual legal consequences for members may have altered their willingness to delay certification, like Cochise. During the video broadcast of the canvas meeting of the board, Supervisor and Chair Ron Gould mentioned that the actions were “under duress.”

The legislative certification of election results is a routine process that occurs in jurisdictions across the country, with legislators mostly having the ability to raise objections to results during the certification process. The most notable such challenge occurred in the U.S. Congress on Jan. 6, 2021, when Republican lawmakers and supporters of then-President Donald Trump raised objections to returns of Electoral College votes from Arizona and Pennsylvania.

In Pennsylvania, Luzerne County’s Board of Elections has declined to certify the returns of ballots. The county faced widespread paper shortage issues on Election Day and was the subject of a court case, which was covered exclusively by the DCNF.

Unlike Mohave’s board, however, members of Congress are constitutionally protected from arrest for political actions made in session under the “speech and debate clause” of the Constitution, which has analogous provisions in most state constitutions for their legislators. Smith told the DCNF that no such provision exists under Arizona law for the board.

Hobbs’ office did not respond to a request for comment.

Don’t Confuse Trusting the Experts with Knowing the Facts

If someone were to ask you how you know Australia exists, what would you say? If you haven’t been there yourself, it can be a surprisingly difficult question to answer. You might point to your grade school geography teacher who first told you about the country. “I know it exists because my teacher told me it exists,” you might say. Alternatively, you might mention a friend of yours who has visited the country and can testify to its existence. Finally, you might point out that you’ve consulted an atlas and confirmed that the country does, in fact, appear on the map.

Though each of these justifications may sound compelling, they all lean on a critical linchpin: trust. “Trust me,” your teacher says, “I’ve looked into this.” “Trust me,” your friend says, “I saw it with my own eyes.” “Trust us,” the atlas publishers say, “we’ve consulted the experts.”

To be sure, these are often trustworthy sources, but it’s important to acknowledge that in some fundamental sense you are choosing to believe what others have told you. If you’ve never verified it yourself, you don’t really know Australia exists, you just trust that it exists.

The reason this question is important is that it reveals to us just how much we defer to authority in our thinking. It’s easy to regard ourselves as being incredibly knowledgeable, but if we’re honest, it’s much more that we’re incredibly trusting. We have accepted what “authority” has told us in just about every domain, and with very little pushback.

C.S. Lewis drew attention to this phenomenon in his book Mere Chrstianity. Indeed, the following passage is what inspired the present article.

“Do not be scared by the word authority. Believing things on authority only means believing them because you have been told them by someone you think is trustworthy. Ninety-nine per cent of the things you believe are believed on authority. I believe there is such a place as New York. I have not seen it myself. I could not prove by abstract reasoning that there must be such a place. I believe it because reliable people have told me so. The ordinary man believes in the Solar System, atoms, evolution, and the circulation of the blood on authority — because the scientists say so. Every historical statement in the world is believed on authority. None of us has seen the Norman Conquest or the defeat of the Armada. None of us could prove them by pure logic as you prove a thing in mathematics. We believe them simply because people who did see them have left writings that tell us about them: in fact, on authority. A man who jibbed at authority in other things as some people do in religion would have to be content to know nothing all his life.”

As Lewis points out, there’s nothing wrong with believing things on authority. We do it all the time, and it helps us make our way in the world.

But while there’s nothing inherently wrong with trusting various sources, I’d argue we tend to be a bit too trusting as a culture. We take authorities at their word, even when we probably shouldn’t.

The whole COVID fiasco is surely a great example of this. How much evidence did it take to convince the average person to get the vaccine? Embarrassingly little. People also bought into lockdowns and mask mandates simply because some “experts” said these policies were a good idea.

The climate change issue is another great example of how much we put blind trust in intellectual authorities. Since most of us have no expertise in the matter, we resign ourselves to taking the experts at their word. But it’s ok, we are assured, because “97 percent of climate scientists agree.” Since we know there’s a “consensus” we can trust them, right?

Not so fast. Ask yourself, do you really know there’s a 97 percent consensus? Did you look at the raw data regarding expert’s opinions yourself? If you haven’t, then on this too you are deferring to authority. You are trusting the source of that 97 percent figure. Specifically, you are trusting that the people who came up with that figure aren’t misleading you and that their collection and representation of the data on expert’s views is reasonable, unbiased, accurate, and complete.

Remember, you don’t actually know that 97 percent of climate scientists agree, you trust that 97 percent of climate scientists agree. (As it happens, this figure is more dubious than most people realize).

Again, there’s nothing wrong with trust. But we need to be careful of trusting too easily, because things are not always what they are reported to be.

So how can we avoid trusting too easily? My proposal is that we adopt what I call “citation needed” culture.

As the name implies, the idea here is to create a culture where we habitually demand evidence, especially for contentious ideas. Any time someone makes a claim, your instinctive response should be “citation needed.”

Growing up, we learned to take things at face value, to take the teacher at their word. But this is a bad habit, one we would do well to abandon. Especially as adults, we need to adopt a healthy skepticism and question everything, even the things everyone seems to agree on.

“Citation needed” culture is also about getting as close to the primary source as possible so as to minimize how many people you need to trust. When you get your information from politicians, the chain of trust is likely politicitan-journalist-scientist-data. That’s a lot of opportunity for distortion (intentional or otherwise). If you can, it’s better to go straight to the scientist, or better yet, the raw data itself (assuming you can interpret it).

Another part of “citation needed” culture is intellectual humility. No matter how “obvious” or “self-evident” something seems, if your claim comes down to “I’m trusting an authority” then you probably shouldn’t be too dogmatic about it. This is especially pertinent for heterodox ideas like conspiracy theories. Did the Holodomor happen? I think so, but I haven’t looked into it for myself. I’m trusting the people who have, just as much as I’m trusting the geographers who tell me Australia exists.

The problem is that people often argue dogmatically for claims on the basis that “everyone knows” this is true, or that “experts agree” this is true. But appeals to majority or authority don’t fly in “citation needed” culture. Show me the receipts, and then I’ll believe you.

In addition to the phrase “citation needed,” then, the other phrase that should be a common refrain is “I don’t have enough knowledge to have an informed opinion on this.” It’s far better to admit ignorance than to pretend you know something when you really just heard it on TV.

Murray Rothbard put it well, commenting on the field of economics. “It is no crime to be ignorant of economics,” he said, “which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.’ But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.”

The same goes for every other field, whether it be history, climate science, infectious diseases, or geography. Trust authorities to your heart’s content if you like, but beware of confusing trust with knowledge.

Musk Releases Details On How Twitter Censored The Hunter Biden Laptop Story

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.


Matt Taibbi, contributing editor at Rolling Stone, released what Elon Musk has referred to as “The Twitter Files,” Friday afternoon detailing how the social media platform suppressed a New York Post story regarding a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden.

The NYP story revealed an email — which was verified soon after by the Daily Caller News Foundation — that connected President Joe Biden with an executive at the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, with the executive thanking the president’s son for “giving me an opportunity to meet your father.” Taibbi alleged that former head of legal, policy and trust Viyaja Gadde played a “key role,” in the decision to suppress the story, which was made without the knowledge of then-CEO Jack Dorsey, but without any government involvement.

Taibbi tweeted an email indicating that Twitter’s trust and safety team initially explained to other employees that it made the decision to suppress the story — the company even went so far as to prevent it from being sent in private messages — because it violated Twitter’s policy for sharing “hacked materials.” Taibbi tweeted two additional emails that show Twitter employees discussing posts flagged by the Democratic National Committee and Biden staff, and communication on how to moderate the posts.

Democratic Rep. Khanna of California reached out to Gadde personally after the story was suppressed, concerned that Twitter’s actions were a “violation of the 1st Amendment [sic] principles,” according to Taibbi. Carl Szacbo, general counsel at trade association NetChoice that advocates for limited government intervention online, sent a letter to Twitter’s head of Public Policy, Lauren Culberston, noting that while members from both parties were frustrated with Twitter’s response to the situation, the three Democratic lawmakers they had polled were in agreement that social media companies needed to moderate more, arguing that “the First Amendment isn’t absolute.”

Sharing the NYP story was banned on Twitter from Oct. 14-16, 2020, a move that Twitter’s former head of trust and safety, Yoel Roth, described as a mistake in an interview on Nov. 30, 2022. Dozens of former intelligence officials criticized the NYP story in October 2020 as likely linked to Russian disinformation in an open letter, according to Politico; however, the veracity of the laptop’s contents has been confirmed by several major news organizations since the DCNF.

Facebook also prevented users from sharing the story, which alleged that the laptop’s hard drive contained video of Hunter Biden using drugs while engaging in sexual activities.

Months before the NYP story, tapes leaked by Andriy Derkach, a member of Ukraine’s Parliament with connections to Russia’s intelligence, alleged that Joe Biden had pressured the former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to fire a prosecutor that was investigating Burisma, where his son was a member of the board, when he was the Vice President.

Twitter did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

If You Really Wanted to Destroy the United States…

Save this column. It should be the script for every elected official who actually wants to save the Republic.

If You Really Wanted to Destroy the United States, Then . . .

It would be hard to imagine any planned agenda to destroy America that would have been as injurious as what we already suffered the last two years.

By Victor Davis Hanson. November 30, 2022

First, you would surrender our prior energy independence.

Reduce new gas and oil leases on federal lands to the lowest levels of any president in history. Cut back production at precisely the time the world is emerging from a two-year lockdown with pent-up consumer demand.

Make war on coal and nuclear power. Drain the strategic petroleum reserve to make the pain for consumers more bearable for midterm election advantage.

Cancel the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge oil and gas field. Block pipelines like the Keystone oil pipeline and the Constitution natural gas line.

Overregulate and demonize frackers and horizontal drillers. Ensure there is less investment for their exploration and production.

Make use of internal combustion engines or fossil fuel power generation prohibitively expensive. Achieve a green oil-dependency along the lines of contemporary Europe.

Second, print trillions of dollars in new currency as the lockdowns end, demand rises, and consumers are already saturated with COVID-19 subsidies. Keep interest rates low, well below the rate of inflation, as you print more money. Ensure that passbook holders earn no interest at the very time prices skyrocket to the highest per annum level in 40 years.

“Spread the wealth” by sending money to those who already have enough, while making it less valuable for those deemed to have too much. Ensure runaway high prices to wean the middle class off its consumerism and supposedly to inspire them to buy less junk they don’t need. Damn the rich in the open and in the abstract, court them in the concrete and secret of darkness.

Third, end America’s physical boundaries. Render it an amorphous people and anywhere space. End any vestigial difference between a citizen and resident. Up the current nearly 50 million who were not born in the United States —27 percent of California’s population—to 100 million and more by allowing 3 million illegal aliens to enter per year.

Fourth, destroy the public trust in its elections. Render Election Day irrelevant. Make proper auditing of 110 million mail-in/early ballots impossible. Normalize ballot harvesting and curing.

Urge leftist billionaires to infuse their riches to “absorb” the work of state registrars in key precincts to ensure the correct “turn-out.”

Blast as “election denialists,” “insurrectionists,” and “democracy destroyers” anyone who objects to these radical ballot changes, neither passed by the U.S. Congress nor by state legislators. Weaponize the FBI, CIA, and Department of Justice.

Fifth, redefine crime as one rich man’s crime, another poor man’s necessity.

Let those who need “things” exercise their entitlement to them. Rewrite or ignore laws to exempt the oppressed who take, or do, what they want as atonement for past systemic racism and oppression.

Six, junk the ossified idea of a melting pot and multiracial society united by common American values and ideals. Instead, identify individuals by their superficial appearance. Seek to be a victim and monetize your claims against perceived victimizers. Call anyone a “racist” who resists.

Encourage each tribe, defined by common race, ethnic, gender, or sexual orientation affinities, to band together to oppose the monolithic “white privilege” majority. Encourage social and tribal tensions. Racially discriminate to end discrimination.

Greenlight statue toppling, name changing, boycotting, cancel culturing, ostracizing, and Trotskyizing. Erase the past, control the present, and create a new American person for the future.

Seven, render the United States just one of many nations abroad. Abandon Afghanistan in shame. Leave behind thousands of loyal Afghan allies, billions of dollars in equipment, a billion-dollar embassy, and the largest air base in central Asia. Appease the theocracy to reenter the Iran nuclear deal.

Beg enemies like Venezuela, Russia, and Iran to pump more oil when it is politically expedient for us to have abundant supplies—oil that we have in abundance but won’t produce. Discourage friends like Guinea from producing more energy and cancel allies’ energy projects like the EastMed pipeline.

Trash but then beg Saudi Arabia to pump more oil right before the midterms for domestic political advantage.

Eight, neuter the First Amendment. Enlist Silicon Valley monopolies to silence unwanted free speech while using Big Tech’s mega profits to warp elections. Declare free expression “hate speech.” Criminalize contrarian social media.

Nine, demonize half the country as semi-fascists, un-Americans, insurrectionists, and even potential domestic terrorists. Try to change inconvenient ancient rules: seek to pack the court, end the filibuster, junk the Electoral College, and bring in two more states.

Twice impeach a president who tried to stand in your way. Try him when he is an emeritus president and private citizen. Raid his home. Seek to indict a future rival to the current president.

Ten, never mention the origins of the COVID virus. Never blame China for the release of SARS-CoV-2 virus. Exempt investigations of U.S. health officials who subsidized Chinese gain-of-function research. Ignore the Bill of Rights to mandate vaccinations, mask wearing, and quarantines.

We have done all of the above. It would be hard to imagine any planned agenda to destroy America that would have been as injurious as what we already suffered the last two years.

EXCLUSIVE: Tara Reade Calls GOP-Majority House To Investigate Alleged Sexual Assault By Joe Biden

Editor’s Note: This article has been updated to include a statement from Reade regarding her work with RT


Former Senate aide Tara Reade called on House Republicans to launch an investigation into allegations that she was sexually assaulted by then-Sen. Joe Biden in 1993, telling the Daily Caller that she would be willing to testify under oath.

“It would be a very different thing, if I could testify under oath,” Reade told the Caller, adding that she would “provide whatever information [Congress] needed and [Congress] could ask me whatever questions they wanted.”

“I think we need to have the conversation, instead of me being erased, and other women that were erased that tried to come forward,” Reade added, saying that House Republicans should launch an investigation while they have a majority.

Reade alleged that Biden sexually assaulted her in a Senate corridor in 1993 by pinging her against a wall and reaching under her clothing before sexually violating her. She said she filed a police report in 2020 about the incident, and that no thorough investigation has ever taken place.

Interns and others that worked alongside Reade in Biden’s Senate office denied knowing that any sexual misconduct took place between Reade and Biden, the New York Times reported in 2020, citing interviews with the former staffers. She could also not remember some details about the incident, including the exact time, date and location, according to the outlet.

Biden’s staffers who worked with Reade at the time, including aide Dennis Toner, chief of staff Ted Kaufman and executive assistant Marianne Baker, all denied that Reade came forward to them about the alleged sexual assault.

Toner and Kaufman told NPR in 2020 that they did not remember Reade and that she did not come to them about the allegations. Congressional records show that she worked for Biden for approximately nine months.

Baker issued a statement saying, “In all my years working for Senator Biden, I never once witnessed, or heard of, or received, any reports of inappropriate conduct, period — not from Ms. Reade, not from anyone. I have absolutely no knowledge or memory of Ms. Reade’s accounting of events, which would have left a searing impression on me as a woman professional, and as a manager. These clearly false allegations are in complete contradiction to both the inner workings of our Senate office and to the man I know and worked so closely with for almost two decades,” NPR reported.

If the Senate staff that served under Biden “had to go under oath, I think they would have to admit something very different,” Reade said.

“He would put his fingers underneath the back of my neck, underneath my hair, and then run his finger up and down,” Reade said. He would “massage my shoulders, and touch me. It was just weird,” she added, noting this happened before the incident in the hallway.

Spokespeople for Biden have repeatedly denied the allegations.

The White House did not respond to the Daily Caller at the time of publication about the allegations and whether Biden would be willing to testify under oath.

Reade claims her mother called into “Larry King Live” in August of 1993 and asked host Larry King what her daughter could do other than go to the press with “problems” she encountered after working for a “prominent Senator.”

Audio shows that a woman did call in to the show at the time, and Reade has claimed that the woman on the line is her mother.

“I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him,” Reade’s mother allegedly said.

King responded, “in other words, she had a story to tell but, out of respect for the person she worked for, she didn’t tell it?”

“That’s true,” Reade’s mother allegedly said.

Reade’s friend said that she told her about the alleged assault at the time, and another friend and Reade’s brother have said that Reade informed them of the alleged assault over the years, The New York Times reported.

Reade told the Caller she filed a sexual harassment report through the Senate in 1993, and that the report was filed on paper. If the paper still exists, it would be sealed with Biden’s papers at the University of Delaware, Reade added.

She continued that when she brought her complaints to her superiors, she was “threatened” and ultimately dismissed from her duties.

One of the press secretary’s staff at the time told Reade, “we’ll f***ing destroy you, if you go forward,” Reade told the Caller.

The intimidation and trauma led Reade to not come forward for years, she said.

“I was 28-years-old, it was scary to hear at the time. It was at the beginning of my political career, and it kind of shut me up,” Reade continued.

House Republicans have announced that they are launching an investigation into Biden, alleging that the president was “involved” in his son Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings.

Republican Kentucky Rep. James Comer, a ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, did not provide comment on Reade’s request.

Biden supporters have used a 2020 probe into Reade allegedly providing a false statement under oath in an attempt to discredit her.

South Bay, California, defense attorneys investigated whether Reade had falsely described her education credentials under oath. A spokesperson for her undergraduate college provided a statement to CNN saying she never graduated, according to the Intercept.

The probe was concluded and no charges were filed, according to the Intercept, and Reade has sent letters to several publications demanding that their claims about her alleged false claims be clarified.

Reade’s critics have also accused her of working with the Russian government, citing her four op-eds published in the Russian government publication RT.
Reade told the Caller, “no Russians were there in 1993 when Joe Biden sexually assaulted me. No Russians were there when Biden team threatened me, used their power and resources to try to silence  me. My political opinions about Russia are simply not relevant to what happened.”
“I was proud of the handful of op-eds that were published. I tried to have one published in the New York Times but it was rejected. Bottom line, I was Joe Biden’s full time staffer in 1993 when he sexually harassed and assaulted me. Any other conversation about what I thought or even who I worked with now is irrelevant to the crime he committed in 1993 and as to why Biden has never even been investigated,” she added.

What is immediately needed from the Biden admin to aid the Chinese protesters?

After over two years enduring life under Xi Jinping’s “zero-COVID” policy, a viral video of screaming residents in a burning apartment building in Urumqi, Xinjiang, and the ensuing outrage have been enough to ignite the pent up fury of the Chinese populace.

According to many accounts, more than the officially reported casualty total of 10 victims died in the fire because residents were trapped in their homes as the fire raged due to their doors being locked from the outside during more than three months of lockdown.

This horrific outcome of the “zero-COVID” policy has caused subsequent protests in Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Nanjing, Shanghai, Wuhan, and other cities calling for Xi and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to step down. The broad display of the Chinese regime’s flag, the singing of the national anthem, and the display of blank sheets of white paper are symbols of protest against the regime.

The protesters are heroically brave and bold as they incur great risks. The police presence, CCTV, omnipresent recognition software, and tracking techniques increase the risk of being identified even if they seek anonymity. This risk will remain for many months to come. A lesson from the CCP’s history is instructive. One of Mao Zedong’s comments regarding the intent of the “Hundred Flowers” campaign briefly allowing some criticism of the CCP was to “lead the snake from the hole.” That is, to allow critics to reveal themselves and thus face annihilation when the inevitable crackdown occurred. This time will be no different as the protesters will not overthrow the Chinese regime, and leaders will be identified and heavily punished.

The CCP is determined to remain in power and employ all of its tools, the surveillance state, the police and intelligence services, and finally, as with the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) units to hold onto power. Given the power imbalance between the protesters and the regime, they will lose if there is no international pressure to shield them.

Lamentably, recognizing that the Biden administration is not supporting them as U.S. power can, the protesters are under terrific strain and will be disciplined by the regime. In sum, what is happening in China is a humanitarian disaster and gross human rights abuse that should compel the world’s attention.

Acknowledging this reality, there remains much that the Biden administration must do to assist as well as to make the regime pay a greater price for what already has occurred and the inevitable crackdown. While the administration’s response so far is a failure in every respect, it must respond appropriately as the protesters and their global supporters look to the United States for leadership. The United States is engaged in intense security competition with the Chinese regime, and the administration must respond accordingly. Five major points are salient.

First, ideological warfare is a key aspect of this cold war, and these protests are a rare opportunity to draw contrasts between the Chinese regime and the West. The Biden administration must find its footing and lead. It must call attention to the stark brutality of the CCP. There are three elements of an immediate response. The first is that these actions underscore what has been evident since 1949: the CCP regime is not legitimate. This message must be advanced consistently. Second, Xi’s public diplomacy and soft power efforts, including the CCP’s effort to build a “common destiny for all mankind,” has been destroyed by the protests. Any future that the Chinese regime creates will be dystopian. But it falls to the United States and its allies to employ the chasm of the regime’s propaganda and the harsh reality. Third, the gruesome fire in Urumqi and the subsequent protests should be immortalized just as were the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, the Solidarity Movement in Poland in the early 1980s, the 1956 Hungarian rebellion, or the 17th of June 1953 uprising against the Soviets and East German regime during the Cold War.

Second, Washington must immediately pressure Beijing with a presidential address to shield as many protesters as possible. The Biden administration must demand that the protesters’ civil rights will be protected and that there must not be mass suppression or another Tiananmen Square massacre. The effectiveness of the CCP’s surveillance and oppression makes another Tiananmen unlikely. In fact, the regime will likely enforce a “silent Tiananmen,” eliminating the leaders and most active protesters through digital as well as traditional means of punishment.

Third, the Urumqi tragedy and subsequent protests are an opportunity to expose to the world—including U.S. audiences on Wall Street and Silicon Valley, as well as all those who have profited from trade with China—the poisonous fruits of their cooperation and engagement with Chinese entities. This cooperation and engagement have only made the CCP stronger and better able to tighten its hold on the Chinese people.

Fourth, the protests reveal that there are effective civil society and popular movements in China, and they can challenge the regime. They must be supported publicly by the United States and other governments, but with technologies that permit these groups to communicate and penetrate China’s “great firewall” to access the open internet. In a particularly damning event, the fact that Apple modified its AirDrop file-sharing software for its phones in China consequently hindered the protesters to Apple’s everlasting shame. Rather than yielding, Western governments should use this opportunity to encourage advancing technologies that allow Chinese citizens unfettered access to the internet to build civil society within China.

Fifth, Western governments may seize this opportunity to collaborate more closely with human rights organizations and international committees like the Nobel Committee, and the Chinese diaspora to advance human rights within China. This cooperation should yield results in official documents and bilateral and multilateral meetings, as with the G-20. Moreover, the Biden administration should create a focal point, a human rights czar for China that would be useful to support the human rights of the protesters and all of China’s citizens.

At this moment in history, the free world is standing on the shoulders of the protesters. Bold action is needed from the Biden administration to combat the Chinese regime. The protests provide the opportunity to enlist the great capabilities of the Chinese people and the West to work together to cause the downfall of the CCP.

Who is Intentionally Destroying America and the World?

It is a dangerous time! We are dealing with Evil and nobody knows it. What a tragedy! There are lots of political discussions and arguments on radio/TV and internet, but no one knows the real enemy. As a former soviet attorney, I was writing and exposing our aggressive foe for forty years, but the Evil is multiplying every day and has already infiltrated our security agencies, morality, and democratic institutions.

To stop me, the FBI unlawfully submitted my name to the FISA Court and the Court made me a Foreign Agent in 2002.

Consequently my books and columns have been sabotaged and banned, preventing you from reading them… I don’t trust either the FBI or CIA and nothing could intimidate and threaten me…

Yes, there are a lot of dealings to uncover, expose, and investigate in America, but without knowledge of Russia and its KGB’s Mafia/Army it is impossible. Like the recent quadruple murders of the student in Idaho, I knew the source of Evil immediately. The police and the FBI have no idea where to go for the solution. The name of the city Moscow doesn’t tell them anything. There are other indications of the Evil-culprit unknown to them. When I saw the photo of the knife, the recent mutilation of animals jumped in my mind instantly. The FBI and police will fail, until they read my books or columns for free. Knowledge is Power!

Friends, we are continuing dealing with the Dems’ lying thugs’ collusion with the KGB, known to you during the last seven years in America. We now have less than two years to expose them for what they really are. This is our last chance to prevent a rout of the Republican Party and the downfall of the American Constitutional Republic. The Dem help their partner, the KGB’s Mafia/Army to infiltrate our entire society and its democratic institutions. All troubles in America and the world derived from the same source and Joe Biden’s connection to it. In fact, Joe Biden and the Dem Party are the center of all our troubles. The time is now to open the eyes of the American public and the world to show how Commander-in-Chief with dementia let his staff—holdovers from Obama manage his presidency. Details are in my books and columns, read them for free.

Mini/Madoff, Sam/Crypto-creep, FTX are also Socialist lying thugs like George Soros, Bernie Sanders and Bill Clinton, they all run by the KGB’s Mafia/Army, the old Soviet agency of Mind Control and Censorship. Find in the internet the picture of three: Tony Blair, Bill Clinton and Sam/Crypto-creep sitting on the same bench—there is an embodiment of the 20th century fraud transition to the 21st century. The investigation of the Dem’s fraud and the absence of accountability will confirm my writings and exposure of the source—Putin’s Russia and the KGB’s Mafia/Army. Moreover, the Dem’s closeness and intimacy with the partner, provided them the knowledge of how the “operation disinformation” works. They use it to mislead America. For this reason, I am repeating endlessly Socialist modus operandi: lies, deception, fabrication, and fraud. Woke is a fraud, its real name Sovietization of America.  Read The Russian Factor, XLIBRIS, 2006.

The KGB’s Mafia/Army Runs America and the World

Experiencing some disappointments with the midterm election, the GOP asked people to provide a personal opinion about that. Hence my proposal for the GOP is as follows: First, the Impeachment of Alejandro N. Majorca’s has no sense and brings no solution. The man responsible for the open borders policy is Chief executive with dementia, who runs by the staff. The Founding Fathers left to us the only solution for the case—The 25th Amendment. We must be decisive, proactive and implement the law. The dementia and Biden’s lies start catching up with him and will open a Pandora Box of the KGB’s foreign involvements. Watch the Dem leaders Obama, Schumer, Kirby, and Biden: they are using the Russian policy of “Disinformation.” America and the world have become their victims!

Watch how they use Stalinist Political Correctness, which is a linguistic ploy to deceive you. Schumer praised the policy of open borders saying: We need people to work and immigration provides us with those people. He is using Stalinist PC—we are dealing with illegal migrants from 180 countries, not with legal immigration! Working within the Soviet legal community, through my friends, I knew pretty well the KGB Chairman Yuri Andropov 1967-1982. As Stalin’s devoted disciple, he designed the simultaneous infiltration by the KGB into the American media and Security Apparatus. I heard about that design in the 1960-1970s I did not believe it. I have never thought about witnessing that alive in America. I did. Read my book The Russian Factor: From Cold War to Global Terrorism, XLIBRIS, 2006

The investigation of the Crypto-King will present the KGB’s ties with two Dems sitting on the bench with him: Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. They and the KGB were demolishing America in the 20th century, but our Security Apparatus knows neither Russia nor the KGB’s Mafia/Army and this is the result of current crises. We will pay a dear price in the future. Communist China continues this relay race from Russia in the 21st century. The TikTok is the continuation of a more deep infiltration of the KGB’s Mafia/Army in the 20th century, which is now destroying the American Constitutional republic from within. Russia and China are the tandem covertly working against America and Western civilization for the last hundred years. People of the world know that a new Republican leadership is going to start deep investigations of the corrupt Swamp. Don’t be surprised by the bravery of the Chinese protesters, they have hope for the new Republican leadership…

Look at the unprecedented anti-lockdown protest in China today. It will definitely be a brutal, violent crackdown by the Communist totalitarian regime, like it was in the 20th century Russia. Remember, Stalin has established two identical security apparatus in Russia and China. The massive protests in China can delay the Communist planned invasion of Tavian. It can be even worse: the brave protesters calling for “Down with Xi” and “Zero Covid.” Those are the signs of instability and future bloodshed by the regime. The U.S. President Joe Biden is missing in action! Joe was silent on Hon-Hong and many other Communist aggressive actions. Watch and analyze Biden’s Covid policy in America. Don’t you see some similarities with Chinese ones?

If you haven’t read my books or columns, you don’t know many important events, dealings, and occasions. I have been following Joe Biden since 2013-2014, when Obama appointed him a point man for Ukraine. Biden didn’t hide his ideology and openly collaborated with Vladimir Putin. His interview called quid-pro-quo was on TV many times. Biden threatened not to give $Billion to Ukraine unless the prosecutor investigating Hunter’s case is fired. Old and corrupt pro-Russian Ukrainian gov. had fired the prosecutor. We saw a collaboration between Putin/Biden against the young democratic Ukraine. Then, Biden was a part of a criminal cabal, weaponized by the FBI and CIA, investigating Trump for seven years. A cabal was run by three Presidents: Clinton, Obama, and Putin. This cabal runs Biden’s administration today—it is Joe Biden’s case to investigate, not Hunter’s case.

In this connection, I have to remind you that Vladimir Putin had played a very substantial role then and continued to participate closely with Biden now through the cabal and the “Axis of Evil.” Those are the countries fighting Western civilization for the last 7-8 decades under the Russian umbrella. They are North Korea, China, Cuba, Venezuela, Syria, and so on. Don’t be surprised that some of them reminded us of their existence like Stalinist North Korea, China, and Venezuela. Russia’s fraud also played a role in all our elections. Like linguistic propaganda and “operation disinformation” Putin’s KGB Mafia/Army had introduced to Dems the “criminal voting operations.” I gave you an example of a “fraudulent voting operation” in Russia in my book. That exact operation was executed by the Dems in America. They needed only chaos and several weeks to implement fraud using the chaos.

Returning to the GOP suggestion. The second step for the House is the process of Impeachment against the Border Czar—Kamala Harris, appointed by Commander-in-Chief. This is the crime of the century, infiltration of 4-5 million of illegal migrants to America—a total chaos and humanitarian crisis on a massive scale for thousands of victims, adults and children. This is a result of the long-term Democrats collusion with Putin’s Cartels in Mexico—coordinated by the Russian Intel. Yes, Putin’s KGB Mafia/Army in Mexico and Central America have been developed by Stalin in the 1950-1960th. You can read the details in my books and columns. This illegal migration costs us trillions! Moreover, current illegal migration will produce another attack of 9/11 in America…

Lauren Boebert is right: “The Swamp continues their disgusting and corrupt behavior without any regard for ethics.” She had never lived under Soviet Socialism and doesn’t know that we are in the transition period from Capitalism to Socialism started by Bill Clinton. The KGB’ Mafia/Army together with America’s Socialist Party have very successfully transformed our Constitutional republic to Socialism for the last three decades. The GOP leaders had not learned anything during that time, they continued informing the public openly about their plans, giving Socialist lying thugs the opportunity to maneuver within their ploys.

Look at the Biden’s recent maneuvers with the oil from Venezuela and the loyalty with the Railroad Union. Both have connections and the elements of Socialism and both have been infiltrated by the KGB’s Mafia/Army in the 20th century. Potential Rail strikes can cost $2 billion per day. It is definitely a threat to consumers, especially in the Christmas Season. I don’t know how it will play out, but I know that all those activities are deliberately coordinated to divert your attention from indoctrinated children, public safety, raising crime, inflation, and the price of gas. All listed issues are the features of building Socialism in America and demolishing the American Constitutional Republic. The main culprits of all of that is the Putin KGB’s Mafia/Army and a so-called Democrat Party!

Is there any strategic reason to deal with Venezuela? No. There is only a political reason—Socialism. Dem’s agenda is a big green scam to build Socialism and the policy of “climate change” its bases for it. Do you know why Joe Biden killed our energy independence? The answer is simple: to use the policy of “climate change” to build Socialism. To learn who invented that policy and why, just read my book: What is Happening to America? The Hidden Truth of Global Destruction Part III, published October 2022.

Seventy years ago, Comrade Stalin predicted America’s future: “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is Threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual Life. If you can undermine these three areas, America will Collapse from within.” — Joseph Stalin.  As a child of Stalinism, I confirm: those words belong to Comrade Stalin. I have heard him speak many times and read all his articles and books. Those words have been spoken by Stalin. After reading this column, please, look around our beloved America the Beautiful. Don’t have a heart attack, but learn about our foremost enemy—Russia. Learn the truth to save our unique and brilliant political system, designed and left to us by our Founding Fathers…

CDC Withheld Data on Fatal Reaction to COVID Vaccine From Post-Vax Surveys for Nearly Two Years

The worst most treacherous mass medical experiment in human history. No indictments, no investigations – just more poisonous vax mandates.

CDC Withheld Data on Fatal Reaction to COVID Vaccine From Post-Vax Surveys for Nearly Two Years

By Mike Miller | Red State, November 29, 2022:

Anyone shocked by the report that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) withheld data about a potentially fatal complication from COVID-19 vaccinations until it was forced under court order to release the data hasn’t been paying attention to the CDC’s multitude of misstatements and lies over the last two years.
As reported by Just the News, data released under court order shows 1 in 3 among the earliest populations to get vaccinated reported needing medical care, missed school or work, or was unable to “perform normal daily activities,” while the CDC continued to fight to keep the data from the public.

Here’s more, via Just the News: 

Among the 10 million-plus users of the agency’s v-safe active monitoring smartphone app through July — 8.5 million of whom signed up between December 2020 and April 2021, before all adults were eligible for COVID vaccines — nearly 8% said they required medical care after receiving the vaccines.

For patients ages 3 and older needing such care, nearly 3 in 4 couldn’t rely on telehealth visits. They required urgent care (48%), emergency room (15%), or hospitalization (10%).

For infants who were authorized to receive the jabs this summer and are enrolled in v-safe through parents or guardians, hospitalizations were much lower (2%) but urgent care [was] much higher (66%).

The v-safe active monitoring smartphone app allows users to quickly share post-vax experiences with the CDC. V-safe uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after users receive a COVID “vaccine.” (COVID-19 “vaccine” is no more a vaccine than is a flu shot.)

The v-safe app proved to be an early hit, with more than 10 million symptom reports filed each month from January through April 2021, dropping to 5 million in May and hovering around 1 million for the next few months. The reports jumped above 2 million again in October following Biden’s (unconstitutional) vaccine mandates for roughly 100 million workers, and dropped dramatically to the low- to mid-hundred thousands from January through July 2022.

Why? Because an overwhelming majority of Americans are over the COVID scare, perpetuated by Biden and the Democrat Party, and the left-wing media sock puppets. Simply, tens of millions of Americans grew weary of Joe “Winter of severe illness and death” Biden’s COVID fearmongering, and have kicked the virus to the curb.

Here’s more, courtesy of JTN: 

The v-safe data obtained thus far are posted by the Informed Consent Action Network as both interactive graphs and several gigabytes of files. It got them through ongoing Freedom of Information Act litigation against the CDC.

Those are just the data the CDC affirmatively sought through checkboxes on v-safe surveys, which are sent to users daily for the first week after each dose, then weekly for 6 weeks and 3, 6, and 12 months after the final dose.

As JTN noted, it took a year and a half to get “five excel files which likely took the CDC minutes to download and produce,” as ICAN said in its portion of the Nov. 4 joint status report filed with the court.

And here’s the tragedy: Chest pain and other cardiac symptoms that could indicate myocarditis and pericarditis — now known to be more common post-vaccination in people under 40, according to JTN — are completely missing from the survey checkboxes, without which, input data are harder to standardize.

BREAKING: HHS Whistleblower Says U.S. Government is Complicit in Trafficking; Child Admits Being ‘Pimped’ by Sponsor

*CLICK HERE TO TWEET THE VIDEO*


Project Veritas released a new video today featuring a whistleblower working within a federal government agency called the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity & Efficiency [CIGIE].

The whistleblower, Tara Lee Rodas, volunteered to assist the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services [HHS] with the processing of unaccompanied migrant children and was deployed to the Emergency Intake Site in Pomona, California.

Rodas sat down with Project Veritas founder, James O’Keefe, and described how precarious she believes the current child sponsorship program is for these minors.

Here are some of the statements made in today’s video:

  • Tara Lee Rodas, Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity & Efficiency: “The tax dollars of people who are listening [to my testimony to Project Veritas] are paying to put children in the hands of criminals.”
  • Rodas: “Our sponsors typically are not citizens. They’re not permanent residents. They don’t have a legal presence.”
  • Rodas: “The sponsor can hold up an ‘Order of Deportation’ to a [migrant] child and say, ‘This is your Order of Deportation. If you do not do what I say, when I say, I’m going to call ICE on you myself.’ We are paying to put children in the hands of criminals.”
  • Rodas: “I said [to the command center executives], ‘We’re getting ready to send another child [to Austin, Texas],’ and they said, ‘Tara, I think you need to understand that we only get sued if we keep kids in care too long. We don’t get sued by traffickers. Are you clear? We don’t get sued by traffickers.’ So, that was the answer of the United States federal government… HHS did not want this information to get out.”
  • Rodas: “They knew I had made protected disclosures and they retaliated against me as a whistleblower and had me kicked off the site so I could no longer research the cases.”
  • Migrant Female Child: “An aunt [sponsored me], but she kicked me out of her house. She was pimping me and I didn’t like that. She would pimp me to men.”
  • Migrant Female Child: “I just escaped one night. I told her [aunt], ‘I’m going to the laundromat.’ She [aunt] went to the laundromat and didn’t find me there. Later on, she called Immigration.”

You can watch the video HERE.

Project Veritas will be releasing more information on this issue this week as the story continues to develop.

Whistleblowers who are aware of similar situations are invited to contact VeritasTips@protonmail.com with information the public deserves to know about.

Warnock’s Former Church Repeatedly Hosted Antisemite Leonard Jeffries

Fox News reports that Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., worked as a youth and assistant pastor of a church for a decade while it repeatedly hosted former New York City professor Leonard Jeffries, who was ousted over antisemitic and black supremacist teachings.

From 1991 to 2001, Warnock served as youth pastor for six years and then assistant pastor for four years under Rev. Calvin O. Butts at Abyssinian Baptist Church in New York City. From 1991 to 1998, Butts’ church hosted Jeffries as a speaker at least three times.

Leonard Jeffries is the uncle of far-Left election denier Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, who is poised to succeed far-Left election denier Nancy Pelosi as the next Democrat leader in the House. The congressman said in 2013 that he remained close with his uncle but disagreed with his theories.

At the time of his first appearance at the Abyssinian church in 1991, Leonard Jeffries was embroiled in a legal battle to retain his position as the Black studies department chair at City University of New York (CUNY). He was ultimately removed from his position after a years-long dispute over racist and antisemitic remarks, including blaming Jewish people for the transatlantic slave trade and supporting Black supremacist ideals, like the theory that higher melanin levels make Black people inherently superior to White people.

Leonard spoke about the CUNY controversy during an October 1991 speech at Abyssinian Baptist Church after a student reporter with The Harvard Crimson alleged the professor had slammed the outlet as a “Jewish newspaper” during their interview, threatened the reporter’s life and had a bodyguard physically seize the audio recording of the interview, the New York Times reported at the time.

Leonard did not deny the reporter’s accusations.

Also in 1991, the American Jewish Committee (AJC) released a report on Leonard “and the Antisemitic Branch of the Afrocentrism Movement,” highlighting several of the now-former professor’s comments on white people and Jews.

The AJC report said Leonard “preaches Jew-hatred like a religion” and claimed he organized a 1990 conference for black teachers that featured black nationalist and antisemitic rhetoric and reading materials.

In July 1991, three months before his first Abyssinian speech, Leonard claimed the portrayal of black people in movies was “a conspiracy, planned and plotted and programmed out of Hollywood, where people called Greenberg and Weisberg and Trigliani and what not,” the AJC report said.

The report also noted Leonard’s racially-charged rhetoric “teaching that blacks are racially superior to whites” and his references to black people as “sun people” due to “more melanin in their skin than whites, whom he calls ‘ice people.’”

Jeffries appeared at the Abyssinian church again in February 1992, giving a speech about systemic racism and white-on-black crime after a white police officer was acquitted in the shooting death of black teenager Phillip Pannell. “Black people are under siege,” Jeffries was quoted as saying.

Abyssinian hosted Jeffries for a third time in July 1998, when he and his wife, Rosalind, performed the libation marking the passing of black historian John Hendrik Clarke.

In 2017, the left-leaning group the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), dubbed Jeffries an “anti-Semitic” speaker in a report covering antisemitism on college campuses.

“Leonard Jeffries, the former head of the Black Studies Department at the City College of CUNY, and a professor there since 1972, has espoused racist and anti-Semitic views and theories since at least the early 1980s, when his comments – made while he was department head – began to attract public attention,” the ADL wrote.

“In the spring of 1988, a white student wrote an account in the student newspaper of his experiences in Jeffries’ class, Black Studies 101,” the ADL continued. “The student recounted numerous times when Jeffries constructed large parts of his class around anti-white arguments.”

The ADL also noted the 1990 New York Times article that “reported that in an April 1990 class on African heritage, Jeffries said that ‘rich Jews who financed the development of Europe also financed the slave trade,’ and that ‘the Jewish Holocaust is raised as the only Holocaust.’”

Leonard Jeffries’ rhetoric about Jewish people continued after his Harvard appearance as well. In 1994, he was quoted by The New York Times as comparing Jewish white people to “skunks” who “stunk up everything.” Prior to a February 2012 keynote speech in Chicago from notorious antisemitic preacher Louis Farrakhan, Leonard was quoted as saying during a discussion panel, “The evil genius of the Jewish community was to put together their powers to make business their religion and make it part of their culture.”


Leonard Jeffries

4 Known Connections

Jeffries’ black supremacist views first came to public notice in the spring of 1988, when a white student, writing in the CCNY campus newspaper, catalogued the host of anti-white theories that Jeffries routinely advanced in one of his classes, Black Studies 101. Jeffries had been teaching at CCNY since 1972, when he was tapped to head the Black Studies department and was almost instantly granted tenure, thanks in no small part to a CCNY administration determined to appease a surging militancy among blacks on campus. Jeffries had little or no standard peer-reviewed scholarship to his name at the time he was granted tenure — or, for that matter, since.

In April 1990, the New York Times reported that another Jeffries class, nominally about African heritage, would have been truer to its content had it been offered under title of “Anti-Jewish Conspiracies 101.” Grossly overstating the participation of Jews in the transatlantic slave trade, Jeffries taught that “rich Jews who financed the development of Europe also financed the slave trade.” In a similar vein, he railed against the notion that the murder of six million Jews during World War II deserved to be recognized as a uniquely horrific act of genocide, complaining to his students that “the Jewish Holocaust is raised as the only Holocaust.”

POLL: Most Americans Trust Elections Less If Results Take ‘Days Or Weeks’

Americans are less likely to trust the fairness and accuracy of an election if results take “days or weeks” to be counted, according to a new poll.

When asked if results that took “days or weeks” to tabulated were more or less trustworthy, 33.9% of respondents said that it is “much less likely,” and 20.9% said that it is “somewhat less likely,” according to the Trafalgar Group/Convention of States Action poll. Across party lines, 62.7% of Republicans, 27% of independents, and 10.4% of Democrats said that they were “much less likely” to trust results that took “days or weeks” to tabulate. 

“The majority of Americans are now skeptical about the outcomes of elections, which creates a fundamental problem that—if left unchecked—could undermine our entire democracy,” President of the Convention of States Mark Meckler said in a statement.

Many states experienced delays in ballot tabulation following the 2022 midterm elections, as election centers struggled to count votes that were received in the mail following Election Day. Arizona, California, Maine, Alaska, Nevada and Colorado continued to count ballots over a week past the midterm elections, as many of the states allowed mail in ballots, postmarked by election day, to arrive by Nov. 15.

However, when asked about election fairness and accuracy, the majority of respondents at least somewhat trusted election results. Of 1,084 respondents, 21.9% of respondents said that they “strongly distrust” election results, with 17.9% saying they “somewhat distrust” them, according to the poll.

Before the midterm elections, election integrity was a leading priority for voters, according to Rasmussen Reports. Of likely voters, 84% would be a major issue in the midterm elections.

“The answer does not lie in Washington, DC, this problem can and must be fixed close to home. State legislatures need to make strengthening election integrity priority number one, and governors need to focus on vigorous enforcement. Until we get the problem under control, this needs to be treated as the state-by-state emergency that it is,” Meckler continued.

The poll was conducted from Nov. 16 to Nov. 20 with a margin of error of 2.9%.

A Breath of Fresh Air for Free Speech

Elon Musk is really shaking things up at Twitter. In a win for free speech, Twitter will no longer enforce its COVID misinformation policy which had been used to silence people who questioned the government’s COVID vaccine and treatment narratives.  It was also announced this week Twitter will reinstate 62,000 large accounts and release its files on the suppression of free speech that occurred under former management.  With respect to the latter, Musk tweeted Monday, “The public deserves to know what really happened.”

The Left is freaking out.  One leftist at Harvard even said Musk is “opening the gates of hell….  People can come back and engage in doxing, targeted harassment, vicious bullying, calls for violence, celebration of violence. I can’t even begin to state how dangerous this will be.”  Yah, yah, we’ve heard it all before – ‘your speech is violence and my violence is speech.’  Some people just can’t stand for other people to be free.  The First Amendment has a lot of enemies at this point, I oppose them all.  Especially the ones who go on TV and use their free speech rights to trash free speech and tell people like me to shut up.  Go fly a kite!

The Biden administration doesn’t like free speech, either.  It labels ordinary parents who speak up at school board meetings ‘domestic terrorists’.  Dozens of Biden administration officials engaged in a gigantic censorship enterprise with Big Tech firms, including Twitter.  The Missouri Attorney General sued to stop it and the first depositions, including Anthony Fauci’s, have gotten underway.

But federal agencies are still trying to stifle free speech in other ways.  The National Science Foundation has awarded $39 million in grants in the last couple of years to projects seeking to clamp down on the dissemination of information that runs counter to phony government narratives on COVID and elections.  The Education Department wants a rule that would punish pro-life speech as ‘discrimination’.

The Biden administration clearly won’t stop with the censorship.  So it should make you more than a little nervous the White House says it is “monitoring” what Elon Musk is doing at Twitter.  “We’re all keeping a close eye on this,” the White House press secretary said.  “Platforms must be held accountable for the harms that they cause,” she said later.  There they go with the ‘harms’, again.  The only harm that’s being done is exposing phony government narratives for what they are.

Enemies of free expression outside the Biden administration are busy, as well.  California passed a law targeting doctors who don’t toe the government line on COVID treatments.  Amazon pulled a book on Islamic terrorism.  A California community college won’t allow students to post anticommunist flyers on bulletin boards.

I continue to speak out against all such efforts and to champion free speech.  It’s nice to have a new ally, a free speech “absolutist” like Elon Musk, join the fight.

CIA Director’s Former Think Tank Introduced Congressional Staffers To Experts Who Worked For Chinese Spy Fronts

  • The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace introduced congressional staffers to at least 10 individuals who worked for Chinese intelligence front groups during a 2019 sponsored trip to China while current CIA Director William Burns was the nonprofit’s president, the Daily Caller News Foundation determined after reviewing author Alex Joske’s book, “Spies and Lies.”
  • Since at least the 1980s, Chinese spies have impersonated scholars aiming to influence U.S. nonprofits and policymakers, Joske found.
  • “A lot of the key scholars and other figures involved in U.S.-China relations on the Chinese side have these sorts of relationships,” Joske told the DCNF.

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace introduced congressional staffers to at least 10 individuals who worked for Chinese intelligence front groups during a 2019 trip to China while current CIA Director William Burns served as the nonprofit’s president, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.

During the week-long, all-expenses-paid trip to Beijing, a bipartisan group of congressional staffers from the offices of various representatives — including Connecticut Democratic Rep. Jim Himes and former North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows — met with Chinese government officials, journalists, academics and policy experts, according to the trip’s itinerary. Yet, at least 10 of the Chinese individuals worked for front groups controlled by Chinese spy agencies, such as the Ministry of State Security (MSS), the International Liaison Department (ILD) and the intel arm of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the DCNF determined.

The congressional staffers participated in a number of discussions with undisclosed Chinese intelligence front group members, such as a Nov. 6 “pre-dinner dialogue” concerning “Chinese perspectives on U.S.-China policy challenges,” which included Ding Yifan, a member of the MSS-controlled Institute of World Development Studies.

PLA’s Second Intelligence Department carries out military intelligence operations, while the ILD focuses on political intelligence and the MSS serves as China’s equivalent of the CIA, according to the Defense Intelligence Agency.

The DCNF was able to identify some of the individuals who participated in Carnegie’s 2019 trip as being tied to Chinese intelligence agency front groups by cross-referencing the itinerary with the research of several prominent Chinese intelligence specialists, including former CIA analyst Peter Mattis and Alex Joske, a former analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.

Joske’s new book, “Spies and Lies,” details how, since the 1980s, Chinese intelligence operatives co-opted or established various nonprofits and impersonated scholars with the goal of luring prominent Western think tanks, such as Carnegie, into partnerships in order to influence U.S. government policies towards the communist nation.

Carnegie’s cooperation with Chinese intelligence front groups dates back to at least 2004, when, under the leadership of former think tank president Jessica Mathews, the nonprofit launched a joint program with the MSS-controlled China Reform Forumaccording to Joske’s research. More than a decade later, Carnegie co-hosted the 2019 congressional staffer trip, which occurred while current CIA Director William Burns served as the think tank’s president.

“A lot of the key scholars and other figures involved in U.S.-China relations on the Chinese side have these sorts of relationships,” Joske told the DCNF.

The six day trip, which was co-hosted by Carnegie and the Aspen Institute, became a flashpoint during Burns’ 2021 confirmation hearings. Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio pressed Burns about Carnegie’s ties to a Chinese government-backed group as well as the all-expenses-paid trip that brought 11 congressional staffers to Beijing in 2019.

Burns told Rubio the trip was meant “to provide congressional staff members with an opportunity to engage directly with Chinese counterparts and to express their concerns about Chinese actions and malign behavior quite directly.”

However, the DCNF previously reported congressional staffers were also introduced to the president of a CCP-affiliated front group called the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC). In 2020, the U.S. State Department designated CPAFFC as a foreign mission seeking to “malignly” influence American leaders.

Additionally, the DCNF has identified at least 10 individuals listed on the trip’s itinerary who worked for nonprofits controlled by Chinese intelligence agencies. At least three of these individuals were simultaneously working for Chinese intelligence front groups while employed by Carnegie, the DCNF found. Another two Carnegie policy experts who participated in the trip formerly worked for Chinese intelligence fronts.

During the trip, congressional staffers visited Carnegie’s center at Tsinghua University, where they encountered at least three experts who’d worked for intelligence front groups, the DCNF determined.

One of these experts who participated in the visit was Li Bin, a Carnegie nuclear policy fellow, who spoke to congressional staffers about North Korea’s “nuclear threat.” Li Bin is a member of the CCP and a PLA intelligence front group, the China Foundation for International and Strategic Studies (CFISS), according to the group’s website.

A second individual, Cheng Xiaohe, who Carnegie employed as an international relations expert, had previously worked for the MSS front group, the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations (CICIR), by Carnegie’s own admission.

The third individual, Yang Wenjing, worked as the chief of U.S. policy at CICIR. While Carnegie did not employ Yang Wejing, Carnegie had featured her as a speaker during events in 2017 and 2018 and continued to feature her at events afterwards.

Similarly, at another point during the trip, Carnegie introduced staffers to Carnegie-Tsinghua advisory council member, Wang Jisi, who is also a CCP member, for a “roundtable discussion.”

Wang has a “very close relationship with the Ministry of State Security,” Joske told the DCNF. Wang has since 2000 also served as director of the China Reform Forum, which Joske’s book identifies as an MSS-controlled front group.

Wang has also worked for at least four other intelligence fronts, including the China International Cultural Exchange Center (CICEC) and another MSS front called the China Institute of Strategy and Management (CISM), the DCNF found.

Carnegie, Burns, Wang and the CIA did not respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

With Republicans preparing to take control of the House, lawmakers are once again scrutinizing Burns’ time at Carnegie and the group’s deep and enduring relationships with Chinese academics, policy experts and government officials.

“The amount of CCP infiltration at Carnegie shows that Director Burns was aware and intentionally concealed it from the American people, or he was grossly incompetent,” Texas Republican Rep. Lance Gooden told the DCNF in September. “Anyone who enables our top adversary is not fit to lead a U.S. intelligence agency.”
