Democrat Autocrats Prep Massive Infrastructure Bill, Plan to Push Through Before Most Can Read It

The one-party totalitarians are now pushing to pass bills that haven’t even been written or finished, a bill that will certainly bankrupt and ruin this nation.

One Payoff in the Infrastructure Deal Is So Blatantly Corrupt That You Almost Have to Respect the Hustle

From the Wall Street Journal:

Mr. Schumer wants to rush the bill through so he can move on to Bernie Sanders’s $3.5 trillion budget resolution that he will then sprint through on a party-line vote. He wants to pass both before the Senate’s August recess. Amendments will often be offered and voted on while the nation sleeps to meet this artificial deadline that is convenient for the political class but not for informing the public. Both parties operate this way now. But it isn’t the right way to run a democracy, and no wonder Americans hold Congress in such low regard (WSJ).

From Ben Shapiro: Total number of people in Congress who will read this before voting: (Twitter).

Dan McLaughlin: At this stage, even the staffers may not read the thing (Twitter).

Another story notes

The new $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill contains billions of dollars to upgrade border crossings — but no money at all for the southern border wall, which President Joe Biden abandoned, despite an ongoing surge of illegal migration (Breitbart).

Democrat Joe Manchin hasn’t said if he’ll vote to approve (Washington Times).

The Social Media Giants Find A Violent Extremist: Me

So since I watch terrorists, I’ve been watching myself. My latest in FrontPage:

As the director of Jihad Watch, I have an ongoing interest in the activities of violent extremists, and have been tracking those activities daily for eighteen years now. But now, in their benevolence, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, and YouTube have made it easier than ever with their Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT): all I have to do is look in the mirror.

The GIFCT means to wipe out the groups it targets. Tyler O’Neil explains at PJ Media that GIFCT “shares terrorism data among Big Tech companies, enabling them to flag and remove terrorist content,” and is stepping up these operations: “On Monday, GIFCT announced that it significantly expanded the types of extremist content in its database, aiming to crack down on material from white supremacists and far-right militias.”

It’s about time, right? Those white supremacists and far-right militias have been rioting with impunity in Portland, and Seattle, and – oh, wait, that was the noble ideological heirs of the heroes of World War II. But we don’t have to guess who they have in mind: the GIFCT offers a helpful list of the dangerous groups from which it is going to save us.

At the highest level, Level 3, are the groups GIFCT classifies as actual bloodthirsty, grade-A certified dangerous terrorists: Boogaloo Boys, Ku Klux Klan, the National Socialist Network, Al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, even the Irish Republican Army. But that’s not all that the intrepid warriors of the GIFCT are going after. Once you’ve reached Level 3, the problem has advanced way too far, anyway. The GIFCT aims to nip terrorism in the bud by also targeting Level 2, “Violent Extremism,” which includes groups that are just below terrorist group status, but moving up the charts with a bullet: Blood & Honour, Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, and…Jihad Watch.

Perhaps even more surprising than the inclusion of Jihad Watch on this list is the fact that Antifa is also listed at Level 2. The likelihood of the social media giants moving in on Antifa is about as likely as Nancy Pelosi being Trump’s running mate in 2024, but it does help put things in perspective. Antifa has been openly calling for and applauding violence in cities all over the country, and as far as the counter-terror “experts” at the GIFCT are concerned, they’re on par with an organization that is dedicated to tracking jihad terror activity and elucidating its motivating ideology. Unlike Antifa, neither I nor Jihad Watch has ever called for or approved of any violence or illegal activity of any kind. But another way we differ from Antifa is that establishment media stooges aren’t falling all over themselves likening us to the men (you may remember what those were) who stormed the Normandy beaches on June 6, 1944. The likelihood that Jihad Watch will be targeted for being on the GIFCT’s list, and Antifa given another pass, is about 100%.

On the morning I found out that I was a violent extremist, I discovered that violent extremists sometimes enjoy a bit of yogurt for breakfast, try to fit in a good long walk, and spend a lot of the day typing. It was a bit more sedentary, and definitely filled with less death-defying adventure, than I expected for an official “violent extremist.” With all the time I sit here facing this infernal machine, the GIFCT may think I’m at work on my “manifesto,” for they say they’re going to make sure that “Manifestos from terrorist and violent extremist attackers” are removed from the Internet, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t be intensely scrutinized, for “a wide range of experts on expanding the reach and impact of our hash-sharing database’s taxonomy in order to respond to terrorist content online across the ideological spectrum.”

Hey, great. Let me start you folks off on the right foot. Here’s my Manifesto, GIFCT, straight from one of your designated “violent extremists.” Get your experts on this, and make sure they study it carefully. Ready? Here it is:

You. People. Are. Nuts.

That’s it. You like it? It took me months to get the precise formulation of my “violent extremist” ideas. And just because I have so much respect for your violent extremist-hunting prowess, GIFCT wonks, here’s a bonus. Here’s what I want for America and the world: the freedom of speech. The freedom of conscience. The equality of rights of all people before the law.

Yeah, I know that messes with you Communists’ sugar-plum visions of racial strife, civil war, and the dissolution of America as a unitary nation-state. And that may be the clue to all of this madness. Violent extremists and their enablers want to make sure they have a free hand, and one strategy to get it was delineated in the Marxists’ tested-and-true playbook: accuse your enemy of that which you’re guilty of doing. Could it be that my organization been designated a violent extremist group because some people have a bit of violent extremism planned and want to make sure that anyone who might speak out against them is silenced and cleared away?

Stranger things have happened. Meanwhile, if I disappear from the net, and from the streets, someday soon, you’ll know that the good folks at the GIFCT have done their job. One less violent extremist will be menacing the rest of us. And we will all be able to breathe a sigh of relief over that. Won’t we?

Can We Stop With the ‘Indigenous’ Bit Already?

It’s amazing how many people are trying to tear down present glories in the name of a past none of them have any interest in going back to. Bringing this to mind is the underreported story of the Canadian church burnings, acts inspired by the claim that Christian-run “residential schools” abused, brutalized and murdered American Indian children.

I investigated this story recently, and it won’t surprise many readers that the Enemedia have completely misrepresented it. And while I covered it here and will have a long magazine essay on the topic go to print this week, the shorter version is this: Insofar as Indian children were forcibly taken to the schools, it was the result of Canadian government policy; many (in fact most, it appears) Indian parents of school pupils wanted their children to attend; and some ex-students describe their years at the institutions as their lives’ best.

Furthermore, the media provocatively speak of residential schools “mass child graves.” But these sites are merely quite typical church cemeteries, and it appears that, at least in some cases, people of all kinds from the local communities were buried therein. But, hey, the Enemedia can’t be bothered with the facts. What I want to address today, however, is something even the churches’/schools’ defenders don’t say.

A central charge made against the churches/schools and the government is that they aimed to stamp out Indian culture. In point of fact, John A. Macdonald, Canada’s first prime minister — and a main residential school system author — was a benefactor to the Indians and called many of them his friends. Admittedly, though, he did consider their culture doomed to extinction and thus believed they needed to be westernized to survive as individuals. Horrible, isn’t it?

Only, he was right.

And Indian culture is, largely, extinct — by the Indians’ own choice.

Here’s reality: We all enjoy the wonders of Western culture, from modern conveniences to human rights. Virtually all of us love our refrigeration, indoor plumbing, heat, air conditioning, cars and computers, not to mention a multitude of other luxuries. We all want most of what modern science offers, such as advanced health care (we want it so much, in fact, that many demand it be “free”). As with everyone else, all responsible Indians want their children educated in the Western sense (the pre-European Indians didn’t have the written word). In other words, American Indians today don’t want to live as their antebellum ancestors did any more than I’d embrace my pre-Roman, European forebears’ lifestyle.

It’s also true that virtually everyone has ancestors whose culture, at some point, was extinguished by someone else (e.g., Europe’s many medieval tribes — such as the Vandals, Goths, Marcomanni, Quadi and Galatians — were subsumed by others). Should we go on about how these peoples, whose times and tribes we wouldn’t return to if we could, were culturally extinguished while we sip our café latte and compose angry missives on the computer?

Yet this is analogous to what too many “indigenous” (and other) activists do today. It much reminds me of an episode of the old sitcom Sanford and Son, one in which the son character, Lamont, decides to “embrace his African roots.” So he dons a dashiki and takes a couple of Nigerian friends — one of whom finally gives him a stern lecture (amusing video below) about how his “Africanism” is all superficial, style and no substance.

Lamont was posing, but no more than many “indigenous” and other activists do. It’s easy to grow your hair long as did “Indian” ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill (who, it turned out, didn’t even have Indian blood) or adopt African names as did “Ibram X. Kendi” (of “The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination” fame), as he uses the millions he makes race hustling and attacking America to finance his opulent American lifestyle. It’s also easy getting in a 16-year-old’s face and banging a drum — as Indian activist agitator Nathan Phillips did in 2019 with the Covington kids — while chanting gibberish (actually learning your ancestors’ language would be too much, I guess).

Of course, many of us find our remote ancestors’ lifestyles intriguing and perhaps even somewhat romantic; I myself am a fan of the Middle Ages and wouldn’t mind going back to that period…for a day. But I’d want to return to our time, and I don’t lament that the Romans, Charlemagne and perhaps others might have extinguished some of my forebears’ culture.

This said, if you’re shattered because the Romans — or the British, French or early American settlers — made your ancestors’ culture history, then go native. Knock yourself out. But show you mean it: Enter the wilderness with a band of fellow travelers wearing a loincloth or animal skins, carrying only bronze or stone tools, depending on whom your ancestors were, and carve a life out of the forest. Best of luck to you.

As for me, the Alaskan Indian below (hilarious 90-second Malcolm in the Middle video follows) is my kind of guy.

I’ll also point out that leftists’ love affair with the “indigenous” is highly selective and becomes a hate-fest when those indigenous happen to be European; in fact, it’s as if we’re to believe Europe doesn’t even have indigenous people. Exemplifying this attitude was Social Democrat politician Mona Sahlin, who said in 2001 in reference to the Mideastern Muslim (im)migration transforming her country that “the Swedes must be integrated into the new Sweden; the old Sweden is never coming back.”

Note that far from evoking outrage and Sahlin’s “cancellation,” her attitude is trumpeted as multiculturalist progress. And what’s befalling the Swedes isn’t called cultural genocide, but “nation-strengthening Diversity™.”

The bottom line is that we have a civilization here, now, today. If it’s worth preserving — and it has given us lifestyle and law unprecedented in history — then we should robustly defend its institutions and traditions. Tearing it down in deference to a false noble-savage fantasy that we’d never actually want as reality is, frankly, stupid.

The kicker is that too many of today’s “indigenous” activists not only don’t want to truly go native; they actually want to swap our system for another European-born one: socialism. So they don’t really want to dispense with the West — they just want the worst it has to offer.

New FBI Initiative Will Put ‘Hate Crime’ Quotas On Local Law Enforcement

And guess who they’re after. Our intel and LE agencies have been weaponized against the American people.

New FBI Initiative Will Put “Hate Crime” Quotas On Local Law Enforcement

By: Eric Striker, National Justice, Jul 29, 2021:

The Department of Justice and the FBI have a message for local police departments: start charging more white people with hate crimes or invite an investigation.

Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta told an assembly of FBI agents yesterday that they are now tasked with hounding police departments in their district if they do not register any “hate crimes.”

Gupta and FBI Deputy Assistant Director of the Criminal Investigative Division Jay Greenberg have declared “hate crimes” by “racially motivated violent extremists” (a euphemism generally reserved for right-wing white men) to be a national threat priority — a rare designation.

According to Greenberg, the FBI will be increasingly specialized in pursuing “hate crimes” through increased training in the matter, an aggressive media campaign designed to recruit victims in “underrepresented and targeted populations,” and putting federal pressure on local law enforcement to charge and report hate crimes when they otherwise wouldn’t.

Hate crimes laws are political and racially motivated. Blacks and Jews are heavily overrepresented as supposed victims in the FBI’s “hate crime” database, while whites are charged at higher rates than general crime rates. Blacks are rarely charged with hate crimes when they commit bias crimes against whites. For example, last month a black man who shot five white men in a multi-state shooting spree told police his sole motive was that he hated white people, yet neither local prosecutors or the FBI have charged him with a hate crime.

According to the FBI’s 2019 hate crime report, blacks are 49% of victims of racial bias while Jews are 60% of crimes motivated by religious animosity. Most of the blacks in the data were victims of “intimidation,” an often Constitutionally dubious charge. A large number of reported hate crimes targeting both blacks and Jews are hoaxes, as seen in famous cases like the Jussie Smollett incident and the thousands of bomb threats targeting Jewish community centers that were the work of a Jew in Israel.

Just yesterday, a white man was charged with “ethnic intimidation” for putting up stickers that say “I Love Being White.” The FBI wants more police departments to exploit the legal gray area and lack of First Amendment advocacy groups for white dissidents to juke crime statistics and distort the reality of crime. Blacks commit roughly 90% of violent interracial felonies, a statistic the Critical Race Theorists at the FBI find inconvenient.

The mad rush for white racists at the FBI is bound to cause more embarrassments for the increasingly discredited agency. Last year, the theater put on by the FBI over NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s “noose,” which turned out to be a hoax, served to reveal the hyper-politicization and lack of seriousness at the Bureau.

President Trump Raises More Than Any Ex-President in History: $82 MILLION

But “Biden” got the most votes in American history.

Trump Raises More Than Any Ex-President in History: $82M

Reporting an unprecedented haul, former President Donald Trump has raised more than $82 million in the first half of 2021 and has $102 million in the war chest from his political action committees, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

By: Newsmax, August 1, 2021:

Trump is the first former president to report nine figures in donations for his political operation, Politico reported.

All this comes despite bans from Big Tech and social media platforms, making the achievement even more notable.

The period reported is from Jan. 1 to June 30 of this year, as the former president has battled obstruction of election fraud investigations and constantly rebuked the struggles of the Biden administration, including the border, pandemic, foreign policy, and inflation.

Trump-affiliated political action committees raised nearly $82 million in the six months from 3.2 million contributions, Axios reported from a representatives’ emailed statement.

“The committees have approximately $102 million cash on hand,” the statement added.

The rough total dollars and contributions averages out to be around $25.63 per donation.

The president has not decided to run for office again, but he has teased it and said “antiquated” campaign finance laws are keeping him from making an official campaign announcement.

Trump’s major fundraising arms are the Save America PAC and his Make America Great Again PAC and the majority of his funds raised are being stockpiled and not spent, The Washington Post reported.

“This man has no intention of going away,” Dan Eberhart, a major Republican donor who has been critical of Trump, told the Post. “To me, the $64,000 question is how much money he’s going to spend on primaries. Is he going to save it for himself, or is he going to go completely nuts on five different House races and spend a tremendous amount of money?”

“It seems like he’s going to go all out for his chosen people.”

That means spending to bolster Trump-endorsed Republicans in the 2022 midterms to help the Republican Party take back the House and Senate majorities.

INCREDIBLE! Massive Protests Worldwide Against China Virus Vaccine Passports

This is what free people do. This is what we the people should be doing.

Massive Protests Worldwide Against Vaccine Passports

By: Michelle Edwards, Uncover DC, July 30, 2021:

As the 2020 Olympics continue in Tokyo with no spectators in sight, protests against COVID-19 vaccine passports and other draconian measures across Europe and around the world continue to stir unrest and draw massive crowds. The demonstrations highlight the growing global conflict between the flip-flopping advice of the World Health Organization, the CDC, and other public health agencies and individuals fighting to defend their right to make personal health decisions for themselves and their families. 

Italy

Thousands of protesters peacefully gathered in Rome, Milan, Verona, and other Italian cities over the past several days following the Italian parliament’s decision to impose “green pass” restrictions on unvaccinated people in the country, including tourists.

The protesters included families with young children, medical doctors who said they are risking their jobs not to get vaccinated, and people who likened the Green Pass decision to decisions by fascist dictatorships.

The pass, which is a digital or paper certificate, will be available to those who have had at least one vaccine dose. The pass will also be available to anyone who presents proof of a negative test taken within 48 hours before accessing any of the activities under restriction, as well as those who have recently recovered from Covid-19. Beginning Aug. 6th, the pass will be required to go to sports stadiums, gyms, swimming pools, museums, spas, casinos, and cinemas. Eating in indoor restaurants will also require a pass.

France

Hundreds of thousands of people in France are protesting against President Emmanuel Macron and the nation’s parliament mandating COVID-19 vaccines for all health care workers and against a bill taking effect in August requiring everyone to have a special COVID-19 pass to enter restaurants. The demonstrators chanted “Freedom, freedom,” while carrying placards denouncing “Macron, Tyrant,” “Big Pharma shackles freedom” or saying “No to the pass of shame.”

The law declares all workers in the health care sector must start getting vaccinated by Sept. 15th or risk suspension. Currently, visitors going to museums, cinemas, or swimming pools in the country are already denied entry if they cannot produce a pass showing that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have had a recent negative test. The pass has been required for large-scale festivals or to go clubbing.

The nation’s Constitutional Council—the country’s top jurisdiction—indicated it would issue its ruling on Aug. 5th. The council has the authority to send laws back to the government for changes. Depending on the virus situation, the rules are set to be in effect through Nov. 15th.  

Greece

In Athens, Greece, thousands of people demonstrated against COVID-19 vaccines last week, carrying wooden crosses and signs with slogans such as “Don’t touch our children.” Police used teargas and water cannons to disperse the crowd.

The protests followed the government’s announcement that COVID-19 vaccines are mandatory in more public-facing roles, including all nursing home staff. Under the bill, employees could be suspended without pay starting mid-August if they refuse to comply. The vaccines are already mandatory for Fire Service personnel. Several thousand people also joined a rally in Greece’s second-largest city, Thessaloniki. 

Australia

Thousands of people took to the streets of Sydney and other Australian cities last weekend to protest ongoing lockdown restrictions following the government’s announcement of another surge in COVID-19 cases. They held banners, including one that read, “This is not about a virus, it’s about total government control of the people.”

New South Wales Police said it acknowledged and supported the rights of free speech and peaceful assembly, adding that the protest was a breach of public health orders. Several people were arrested, and police are gearing up for more protests this weekend, with up to 1,000 police officers ready to meet anti-lockdown protesters. Over half of the country is on lockdown. Greater Sydney has been locked down for the past four weeks and residents are not allowed to leave home without a reasonable excuse.

Germany

In Germany, around 65,000 people filled the streets of Berlin last weekend to celebrate the 43rd edition of Christopher Street Day. Since the event’s debut in 1979, the gay community has used the platform to broadcast its political agenda, fight for equality, and push to expand the definition of diversity.

Despite allowing the Christopher Street Day celebration, authorities have announced they prohibit the anti-COVID-19 restrictions movement Querdenken (Lateral Thinking) scheduled for this weekend. Nonetheless, the group plans to hold demonstrations in Berlin on Jul. 31st and Aug. 1st. Last year, at a rally for freedom, peace, free expression, and respect, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. spoke in Berlin to over one million people from every nation in Europe.

Currently, Germany is beginning to carefully reopen after several strict lockdowns since March 2020. Visitors must complete a digital registration form before traveling to the country. Following spikes in winter and spring, case numbers dropped as it ramped up its vaccination program. However, the country reports significant concerns about the Delta variant, which has resulted in the federal government clamping down on travel from the U.K. and Portugal. Across the country, medical-grade FFP2 masks, not surgical masks or face coverings, are a legal requirement in shops and on public transit.

People Are Speaking Up Globally

Protests against lockdowns, masks, and vaccine passports—although not reported by the mainstream media—have been erupting around the world for months. Here in the United States, a large crowd gave a standing ovation earlier this week after St. Louis Council voted to end a mask mandate. In Thailand, protesters, who state they resent the government’s mismanagement of the economy and the pandemic, are demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha. In Ireland, over 1,500 protesters gathered last week holding anti-lockdown and anti-vaccine passport signs, calling the vaccine program “genocide.”

Biden Camp Considers Us Domestic Terrorists

I don’t know whether you read the Whitehouse.gov website regularly but it contains a lot of information on their leftist and extremist future actions against who you and I call patriots and they call domestic terrorists. I am copying and pasting a press release from June 23rd written and released by Homeland Security Advisor Liz Sherwood-Randall. She is a career liberal minded government worker, (from 1986 with then Senator Biden) who has staunch leftist views. She has notably worked with testosterone challenged Hussein Obama and our mentally challenged Joe Biden, both of whose radical agendas she supports. Her father, surprise, was a wealthy liberal lawyer and patron of the arts in LA.

I want you to take the time to carefully read what I have copied here and understand the steps they are taking to silence the right and our voices, to ruin our lives and careers and take note who they are doing this with. I hope you are as alarmed as I am. As regards that web site, try hit it at least weekly. You will be shocked at what they post. They are not even trying to hide their agenda now.

As always I have included the link below for you all. Feel free to share this blog far and wide!!

Remarks by Homeland Security Advisor Liz Sherwood-Randall at the University of Virginia on National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism.

Good afternoon. I’m delighted to have the opportunity to speak at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center and Karsh Center for Law and Democracy, even if only virtually, and to discuss the Biden Administration’s new National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism.

I asked to speak in the historic setting of Charlottesville because the nation was riveted four years ago this summer on the chilling events that reflected disturbing trends in our culture raised the specter of domestic terrorism.

President Biden launched his campaign by pointing to the violence we saw in Charlottesville in August 2017—including domestic terrorist violence. He called it a battle for the soul of America.

In his inaugural address, President Biden specifically pointed to “a rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat.”

The use of violence to pursue political ends is a profound threat to our public safety and national security. And it is even more than that: it is a threat to our national identity, our values, our norms, our rule of law—our democracy.

We saw this vividly on January 6th when the Congress and the U.S. Capitol were attacked.

Democracy isn’t something we create once. Democracy is a process, not a static condition. It is, as President Biden said today, “a way of being.”

We have to renew it and reinvest in it in each generation, affirming a simple but profound premise: that we can and must resolve our differences peacefully, through civil civic discourse and at the ballot box, rather than through physical intimidation and violence.

At the same time, our efforts to counter domestic terrorism must take place within the context of upholding Americans’ civil rights and civil liberties—the very freedoms that make us the United States of America.

President Biden is briefed regularly on the domestic terrorism threat and has discussed what we need to be doing to counter it in a series of meetings in our first five months in office with his key Cabinet members, including Attorney General Garland, Secretary of Homeland Security Mayorkas, FBI Director Wray, and Secretary of Defense Austin.

And he has consistently guided us to undertake this vital work without undermining our values and freedoms or, inadvertently, exacerbating the very challenges we are seeking to address.

Notably, we are tackling these challenges 20 years after the events of September 11th, 2001, which led to the building of a strategy and indeed an entire architecture to counter global terrorist threats—which is work that Fran Townsend pioneered earlier in her career. We have learned a lot over the last two decades. That experience has taught us the importance of remaining true to who we want to be at home and in the world, and about finding the balance between countering very real threats while protecting basic freedoms that are the foundation of our democracy and our enduring advantage in the world.

I’d like to explain some of the core guiding principles that informed our approach to that vital task and then set forth the four key pillars of our strategy, which the Attorney General announced in a major speech at the Justice Department last week, on June 15th.

Our first guiding principle: Start with the facts, and analyze them rigorously.

This is foundational to everything we do on this front – as it is more broadly in the national security domain.

To establish an objective, fact-based view of the domestic terrorism challenge we faced as a new Administration in January 2021, President Biden tasked the intelligence and law enforcement communities during his first week in office to produce a comprehensive assessment of today’s domestic terrorist threat. The goal was to understand the risks that domestic terrorists pose and let the expert assessment guide us as we formulate a strategy and implement it.

The career professionals found that domestic violent extremists motivated by a range of ideologies pose an elevated threat to our country —with racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists and anti-government militia violent extremists posing the most lethal threats.

Further, violent extremists who promote the superiority of the white race have the most persistent transnational connections.

Overall, however, the report did not find a robust nexus between domestic terrorists and foreign actors. At this time, this is largely an inside-out problem, not an outside-in problem, though we know that our adversaries are seeking to sow divisions in our country.

This brings me to our second guiding principle: Make this a clear White House priority so that the entire U.S. Government gives immediate attention to an urgent threat and sustains that attention throughout our Administration.

That’s why we built a team at the National Security Council specifically dedicated to coordinating our government’s domestic terrorism strategy—the first team of its kind ever created within the White House. We have learned lessons from international terrorism where we could; and we treat domestic terrorism as distinctive where we should.

The third guiding principle underpinning this work is to ensure that we learn from the career professionals and experts who do this hard work every day.

Our team has worked with an extraordinary community of relevant experts across the Federal Government, including law enforcement and homeland security components and elements that haven’t traditionally been part of national security conversations, such as the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Veterans Affairs. They have helped us to grasp what important efforts are already underway to address issues related to domestic terrorism and shared lessons learned from previous efforts about where there are gaps and opportunities to innovate and improve, so that we evolve as quickly as the threat is evolving.

The fourth guiding principle is that we must be in ongoing conversations with the broader stakeholder community, from civil rights groups to faith-based organizations to technology companies to universities like the one hosting this dialogue today to law enforcement partners at the state and local level. We have also consulted with Members of Congress—both Democrats and Republicans—to learn how they regard this evolving threat and to ensure they understand our approach.

By following these core principles, we developed America’s first-ever National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism, with a focus on four key pillars.

The first pillar, which addresses understanding and sharing information about domestic terrorism, builds directly on the comprehensive threat assessment completed in March. We must understand this threat fully in order to address it fully. That’s why we’re ensuring that the Federal Government is gathering information on domestic terrorism comprehensively, within existing authorities and consistent with constitutional protections, to improve that understanding. For the first time, The Department of Justice is now tracking Federal law enforcement’s investigations nationwide in this area comprehensively. For the first time, the Department of State and other agencies are making this issue a priority for information exchanges with foreign partners. And, for the first time, we’re creating a structured mechanism to ensure that our government benefits, in a consistent and systematic way, from the worthwhile research and analysis done on this issue by non-governmental experts like the experts at the Karsh and Miller Centers.

That understanding informs the Strategy’s second pillar, which focuses on prevention.

Drawing on the expertise of a variety of Federal departments and agencies, we will work with communities to become more effective at preventing individuals from ever reaching the point of committing acts of terrorism.

To do this, we will strengthen domestic terrorism prevention resources and services and work to improve public awareness of Federal resources to address threatening behavior before violence occurs.

For example, the Department of Homeland Security is building on its counterterrorism mantra that if you see something, you should say something. Recognizing that family, friends, and co-workers may be the first to realize someone is radicalizing to violence, we need to create pathways for sharing information that feel comfortable and are easily accessible.

For the first time, DHS has designated “Domestic Violent Extremism” as a National Priority Area within the Department’s Homeland Security Grant Program, which means that over $77 million will be allocated to state, local, tribal, and territorial partners to prevent, protect against, and respond to domestic violent extremism.

To offer another example, the Department of Defense is ensuring service members leaving the military are aware that they could be targeted for recruitment by violent extremists.

We will also be augmenting efforts to address online terrorist recruitment and mobilization to violence by domestic terrorists. This is an enormous challenge and one that will require ongoing ingenuity and collaboration with the private sector. The strategy directs increased information sharing with the technology companies and the creation of innovative approaches to foster digital literacy and build resilience in the face of terrorist recruitment and mobilization.

Relatedly, in May, we announced our decision to join the Christchurch Call to Action to Eliminate Terrorist and Violent Extremist Content Online, an international partnership among 56 governments and 10 technology companies including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube that works to develop new solutions to eliminating terrorist content online while safeguarding free expression.

This framework was forged by some of our closest foreign partners following the 2017 attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, that left 51 dead and dozens wounded. What they’ve built has energized and guided an important global conversation about how to address terrorism threats online while protecting and indeed promoting freedom of expression that we as Americans cherish. And we are stronger when we stand together with countries that share our values, especially in urging technology companies to take vital actions to secure their platforms against exploitation.

Prevention efforts are important, but we know they will not always succeed in stopping radicalization toward violence. That’s why the Strategy’s third pillar involves disrupting and deterring domestic terrorists.

Federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement are critical to countering domestic terrorism. We are deliberately increasing support to law enforcement to enable them to more effectively address domestic terrorism nationwide.

As Attorney General Garland has emphasized, U.S. Attorney’s Offices and FBI Field Offices across the country are making domestic terrorism a top priority, with the Justice Department and FBI reallocating or requesting appropriate funding and resources to target the threat. In the President’s Fiscal Year 2022 Budget, we have included over $100 million in additional resources for DOJ, FBI, and DHS to ensure that the Federal Government has the analysts, investigators, prosecutors, and other personnel and resources it needs to thwart domestic terrorism and do justice when the law has been broken.

State, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement will have access to increased intelligence sharing and training on domestic terrorism and associated threats. That includes, for example, enhanced training on domestic terrorism iconography, symbology, and phraseology as well as augmented information on how to recognize potential indicators of mobilization to domestic terrorism.

In the Federal Government, we are also working to address the potential “insider threat” posed by deliberate domestic terrorist recruitment of individuals who hold or have held sensitive positions in the military and law enforcement. We are, in particular, improving employee screening to enhance methods for identifying domestic terrorists who might pose insider threats.

The Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and Justice are pursuing efforts to ensure domestic terrorists are not employed within our military or law enforcement ranks and to improve screening and vetting processes. Moreover, resources are being developed for state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement partners to enable them to enhance their own employee screening programs.

Finally, we must also address long-term contributors to domestic terrorism. That is the fourth pillar of our Strategy.

This reflects the context within which our first three pillars are situated, and involves broader possibilities for reducing the drivers of domestic terrorism over the years and generations to come, such as by reducing persistent economic inequality and by helping those who feel left behind in a 21st century economy. Our long-term efforts also involve reducing and protecting Americans from racial, ethnic, and religious hatreds; building trust in our institutions; working toward an information environment that fosters healthy democratic discourse; and stemming the flow of firearms to individuals intending to commit acts of domestic terrorism, including through initiatives that will be discussed by the President later today as part of the Administration’s gun violence and violent crime prevention strategy. While this work is beyond the remit of traditional counterterrorism work, our strategy will be situated within our Administration’s comprehensive efforts to strengthen the long-term health of our nation.

I’ve learned across my opportunities to serve in government, with this being my fourth tour of duty, that strategies mean little unless they are translated into concrete and consequential actions. Having first worked for President Biden in the Senate when I was 26 years old, I can say with confidence that he puts a premium on effective implementation. The work of implementing this strategy so as to make Americans safer is already well underway. And in doing this work today and every day, we will remain vigilant against all threats to Americans, including those posed by terrorists internationally, because we will never take our eyes off threats to our safety and security, whether they come from at home and abroad.

It is a privilege to join each of you today to discuss this vital work. By tackling domestic terrorism together, each of us can make a contribution to safeguarding our precious democratic experiment. So, I thank each of you, wherever you are today, and whatever role you play—perhaps in the Federal Government; perhaps with a state, local, territorial, or tribal partner; or perhaps with a non-profit, such as a university, working on violence prevention or researching terrorist recruitment online.

We are committed to protecting this nation and staying focused on this work. And we believe this Strategy can guide us for years to come. As Justice Thurgood Marshall said upon receiving the Liberty Medal from the National Constitution Center, “Democracy just cannot flourish amid fear. Liberty cannot bloom amid hate. Justice cannot take root amid rage. America must get to work.” That’s exactly what we’re doing: we are getting to work.

Now I’ll turn things back to Fran, who knows very well the challenges of serving as Homeland Security Advisor and tackling existential threats. Fran, thank you again for making time for this, conversation.

VIDEO: CDC/Facebook Collusion on Censorship?

Is it any wonder that Americans don’t trust the CDC or Facebook to deliver accurate information? And is it any surprise that your Judicial Watch caught these two organizations colluding to control the flow of news and opinion about Covid-19?

We learned a lot about the behind the scenes, inappropriate friendship of this government agency and this private company after we sued.

We received 2,469 pages of documents from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which reveal that Facebook coordinated closely with the CDC to control the Covid narrative and “misinformation.”

In addition, social media companies gave more than $3.5 million in free advertising to the CDC.

We received these documents in response to our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Health of Human Services (No. 1:21-cv-00625)) lawsuit for:

Any and all records of communication between CDC officials and/or employees and employees, agents, and/or representatives of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube concerning, regarding, or relating to COVID-19 related content on company platforms. Such records include, but are not limited to, any advice or instructions issued on disinformation re COVID-19.

The documents show little daylight between the CDC and Big Tech on Covid-19 messaging and misinformation:

  • In an email exchange beginning on January 26, 2020 with the subject, “Data for Good | CDC intros,” a Facebook representative sends the “FB coronavirus narrative” to the CDC.

It states the following:

Facebook is taking a three pronged approached to the global response for the coronavirus:

Limit misinformation and other harmful content on our platforms.  Our third-party fact-checkers have been rating information on this topic as false, including the APPolitifactAFP Hong KongRapple IQ in the Philippines. As a result, we show people who come across that false content accurate information from our fact-checking partners and strong warning labels. We also send notifications to people who already shared this content alerting them that it’s been fact checked.

Provide accurate and helpful information on our platforms to our partners. Partners are already using our platforms to share accurate information about the situation, including on Pages. We have also provided ad credits to the World Health Organization and the Philippines’ Department of Health to enable them to run coronavirus education campaigns on Facebook in-region, which we will continue to do. We’re continuing to explore additional steps we can take, including dedicated information modules on relevant search queries and improved search ranking.

Empower partners with data tools. We’re sharing aggregated mobility data and high resolution density maps with various partners (e.g., National Tsinghua University (Taiwan); Harvard School of Public Health) to help inform forecasting models for the spread of the virus as part of our broader Data for Good program. We’re exploring doing this with a broader set of partners (e.g., WHO, US CDC) and also helping partners understand how people are talking about the issue online through tools like Crowdtangle to inform their efforts.

This email exchange continues on showing more coordination on messaging between the CDC and Facebook.

  • The CDC was given over $3.5 million of free advertising on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
    • In a March 8, 2020 email, a Facebook representative sends four ad credits totaling $2 million to the CDC for the purpose of supporting “messaging related to coronavirus.”

On March 14, 2020, then-CDC Chief Operating Officer and Chief Strategy Officer Sherri Berger emails Facebook to thank them for the $2 million.

“On behalf of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and by the authority delegated to me through Section 231 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. Section 238), as amended, thank you for Facebook’s non-monetary gift of advertising credited with an estimated value of $2,000,000.  The gift will be used by CDC’s COVID-19 response to support dissemination of critical public health messaging.  Thank you!”

  • In an email exchange between August 10-11, 2020, the CDC’s Sherri Berger emails Facebook again to thank them for another $1 million in ad credits with a similar message to that on March 14, except she adds: “This gift will be used by the CDC’s COVID-19 response to distribute scientifically accurate data, guidance and risk communication information on COVID-19 to a broader audience.” In an email exchange on August 25, 2020, Facebook makes CDC officials aware that of their recent gift of $1 million in ad credits, $529,207.42 remain.
  • In a heavily redacted email exchange on March 17, 2020, a Twitter official offers the CDC advertising in the form of Twitter’s Promoted Trend and Promoted Spotlight Trend, which have approximate values given as $75,000 and $150,000.
  • In an email exchange beginning March 16, 2020, a Google representative offers the CDC free video advertising on YouTube.  In the exchange, they claim to not be able to assign a dollar value to this advertising. The CDC’s official acceptance document for this advertising, which they value at $0, Sherri Berger states: I understand that Google LLC may be a vendor and/or lobbyist employed and that Google LLC’s employees may be registered lobbyists.  Providing the gift will not prevent Google LLC or its affiliates from supplying products of services to CDC in the future; CDC, however, is under no obligation to accept future services from Google LLC or its affiliates.
  • In a February 27, 2020 email, a Facebook representative offers to put CDC officials in contact with WhatsApp in order to establish auto-responses to FAQs about coronavirus in that communications platform.

These documents show that Facebook and the CDC are joined at the hip on managing the ever-changing Covid-19 “narrative” – which includes censorship of alleged “misinformation.”

I suspect there is more to be found on this topic and Judicial Watch’s investigators and litigators will continue to expose the behind-the-scenes censorious machinations between Big Government and Big Tech that are  a threat to both the truth and your First Amendment rights.

What the Nazis had in common with every other collectivist regime of the 20th century

One hundred years ago—on July 29, 1921—Adolf Hitler became the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party.


This week marks an infamous centennial. One hundred years ago—on July 29, 1921—Adolf Hitler assumed the leadership of the National Socialist German Workers Party, better known as the Nazis. It became his vehicle to power.

Note the formal, official name of the party. It was not the National Capitalist German Workers Party. It was not the National Free Market German Workers Party. Nor was it the National Christian German Workers Party. Yet a century later, claims that Nazis were capitalist or Christian or both—though preposterous—are still occasionally heard.

Though Hitler quoted Scripture early in his career when it was politically convenient (he lied often, incidentally), he also said the Bible was “a fairy tale invented by the Jews.” He appointed many vehement anti-Christians to high office; arrested, jailed, tortured and killed many priests and pastors; denied that Jesus was a Jew and even ordered a “new Bible” stripped of all references to Jews and Jewish history.

Baldur von Schirach, head of the Hitler Youth, certainly got the memo. “The destruction of Christianity was explicitly recognized as a purpose of the National Socialist movement,” he said, as noted in evidence produced at the Nuremberg trials and in this video.

In a story on the Nazi bible, London’s Daily Mail reported:

Hitler admired the ceremony and majesty of the church—he admitted as much in Mein Kampf—but hated its teachings, which had no place in his vision of Germanic supermen ruling lesser races devoid of ‘outdated’ concepts such as mercy and love. But he knew the power of the church in Germany and even he could not banish it overnight. He was even forced to abandon the systematic murder of the handicapped and insane before the war when outspoken bishops began to speak against it. Instead, his plan was to gradually ‘Nazify’ the church beginning with a theological centre he set up in 1939 to rewrite the Holy Bible.  

In the real Bible, Matthew 7:16 famously declares, “By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?” What Hitler and Nazism produced—genocide, warfare, state control, and endless evil in many forms—constitutes the very antithesis of the teachings of Jesus.

The lie that Nazism was capitalist instead of what the Nazis themselves said it was (namely, socialist) derives from the fact that the Hitler regime did not engage in wholesale or widespread nationalization of businesses. In the Third Reich, you might retain legal title to a factory but if you did not do as the Nazis ordered, you would be, shall we say, dispatched.

Writing in his magnum opus, Human Action, Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises explained that Nazism was “socialism under the outward guise of the terminology of capitalism”:

The second pattern [of socialism] (we may call it the Hindenburg or German pattern) nominally and seemingly preserves private ownership of the means of production and keeps the appearance of ordinary markets, prices, wages, and interest rates. There are, however, no longer entrepreneurs, but only shop managers (Betriebsführer in the terminology of the Nazi legislation).

These shop managers are seemingly instrumental in the conduct of the enterprises entrusted to them; they buy and sell, hire and discharge workers and remunerate their services, contract debts and pay interest and amortization. But in all their activities they are bound to obey unconditionally the orders issued by the government’s supreme office of production management. This office (The Reichswirtschaftsministerium in Nazi Germany) tells the shop managers what and how to produce, at what prices and from whom to buy, at what prices and to whom to sell. It assigns every worker to his job and fixes his wages. tell prices and from whom to buy, at what prices and to whom to sell. It assigns every worker to his job and fixes his wages. It decrees to whom and on what terms the capitalists must entrust their funds.

Market exchange is merely a sham. All the wages, prices, and interest rates are fixed by the government; they are wages, prices, and interest rates in appearance only; in fact they are merely quantitative terms in the government’s orders determining each citizen’s job, income, consumption, and standard of living. The government directs all production activities. The shop managers are subject to the government, not the consumers’ demand and the market’s price structure.

Does that look like capitalism to any thoughtful, honest person with no agenda but the truth? Hardly.

As I wrote in The Only Spectrum that Makes Sense, Lenin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, Hitler, Mussolini were all anti-capitalist peas in the same socialist, collectivist pod:

They all claimed to be socialists. They all sought to concentrate power in the State and to glorify the State. They all stomped on individuals who wanted nothing more than to pursue their own ambitions in peaceful commerce. They all denigrated private property, either by outright seizure or regulating it to serve the purposes of the State.

Michael Rieger argues that some of the confusion about how to label Nazi economics stems from socialism’s ever-shifting varieties. Socialists are notorious for claiming “this is it” when they’re just writing or daydreaming about it and then claiming “that wasn’t it” when it flops. Rieger writes:

The wide variance between utopian socialism, communism, national socialism, and democratic socialism makes it remarkably easy for members of each ideology to wag their fingers at the others and say, “That wasn’t real socialism.” However, there is one common thread in each of these definitions of socialism. From Saint-Simon to AOC, all self-described socialists have shared the belief that top-down answers to society’s problems are superior to the bottom-up answers created by the free market.

Rather than admit that Nazism was socialist and disastrous, diehard socialists declare “that wasn’t socialism.” It would be more honest if they just said, “Oops.” But they typically react the same way (in vehement denial) to failed socialist experiments everywhere, from the Soviet Union to Venezuela.

FEE’s director of content, Dan Sanchez, generated numerous affirmations when he recently tweeted this:

Cases of socialism they don’t like: “Not true socialism.” Cases of capitalism they do like: “Not true capitalism.” Socialists always lose on economics, so they try to win with word play.

Ask yourself this: Does the following statement sound like something a socialist would say or something a free-market, capitalist advocate would espouse?

The good of the community takes priority over that of the individual. But the State should retain control; every owner should feel himself to be an agent of the State; it is his duty not to misuse his possessions to the detriment of the State or the interests of his fellow countrymen. That is the overriding point. The Third Reich will always retain the right to control property owners. 

That was Adolf Hitler in a 1931 interview with Richard Breiting. He said essentially the same thing a hundred times or more, and it is exactly what he carried out in practice. And it is as socialist as it gets. Nothing capitalist or free market about it.

A century ago today, a megalomaniac began his rise to political power. The world suffered unspeakable catastrophe at the hands of that very anti-Christian and anti-capitalist monster. Do not be gullible or foolish enough to suggest he was otherwise.

It’s Not About Where the Virus Escaped From: It’s About Where It Was Developed

A 20 July 2021 Press Release from Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) deserves both attention and credit. At his website, the Congressman from Alabama reported on a meeting he’d attended with Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a medical doctor, Ph.D. virologist, and whistleblower. At the meeting, Dr. Yan provided insider information about the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 (aka the ‘coronavirus’). Dr. Yan fled Hong Kong in 2020, defecting from China to warn America and the world about the Chinese Communist Party’s offensive, unrestricted biowarfare program.

As Representative Brooks noted, “The evidence is overwhelming that the Communist Party NEGLIGENTLY, RECKLESSLY OR INTENTIONALLY RELEASED COVID-19 on the world. Moreover, China engaged in a massive disinformation and propaganda campaign to cover up their misdeeds. Dr. Li-Meng Yan bravely defected from China to America after DISCOVERING the COMMUNIST CHINESE PARTY’S destructive and evil Wuhan bio-weapons program. I urge America and the world to wake up to the threat posed by an unchecked Chinese Communist Party. It’s time to get tough and hold China accountable for its deadly actions.”

Rep. Brooks is among the few on Capitol Hill who has had the courage and the insight to speak openly about the CCP’s illegal Biological Weapons program, which violates the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) – to which China remains a signatory – as well as the 1925 Geneva Protocol (later updated and accepted as ‘customary international law’). The weaponization of viruses is included under the designation of ‘bioweapon.’

At his website, Rep. Brooks includes a link to a 6-page report from Dr. Yan that details specifics of the CCP’s “comprehensive unrestricted bioweapons program of the Chinese military” (the People’s Liberation Army, or PLA). She points to open declarations by Chinese PLA scientists and other officials that suggest World War III would be fought with biological weapons. Specifically, in May 2021, the Weekend Australian reported on a 2015 document written by Chinese scientists and public health officials that openly discussed the weaponization of the SARS coronavirus. Titled The Unnatural Origin of SARS and New Species of Man-Made Viruses as Genetic Bioweapons, the document described the SARS coronavirus as among “a new era of genetic weapons” that can be “artificially manipulated into an emerging human ­disease virus, then weaponised and unleashed in a way never seen before.”

Then there is the September 11, 2019 blog entry from author, columnist, and geo-political analyst Jeff Nyquist, in which he posts the full text of the 2003 “Secret Speech of General Chi Haotian”. Gen. Haotian was the CCP Minister of National Defense from 1993-2003 and served simultaneously as the vice chairman of the central military commission of the CCP. In this chilling speech, Gen. Haotian spoke in blatantly racist terms of Han Chinese “national superiority”, atheism, and covetous “overseas” geographical expansionism in the name of “living space”. He stated that “[o]nly countries like the United States, Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization” – adding that “We the descendants of the Chinese nation are entitled to the possession of the land!” He went on to describe biological warfare, “new bio-weapons”, and a “surprise attack” as the “special means” by which to “clean up America”, so that the killing of “one or two hundred million Americans” would make room for Chinese people to move in without despoiling the land (as nuclear weapons would).

Haotian left no room for misunderstanding: he declared that “[i]n the long run, the relationship of China and the United States is one of a life-and-death struggle”. Remember, he is speaking here as the CCP’s Minister of National Defense, asserting that “we will not hesitate to fight a Third World War” to “secure a Chinese century in which the CCP leads the world.”

In fact, Gen. Haotian’s speech merely echoes and amplifies the 1999 publication of “Unrestricted Warfare: China’s Master Plan to Destroy America” by two Chinese Colonels in the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the Chinese military. In those pages, the PLA lists multiple arenas of warfare the CCP regime considers legitimate. Among them is “Bio-chemical Warfare.”

Understood in this context, Dr. Yan’s warning is beyond chilling. As the world continues to grapple with a rapidly mutating SARS-CoV-2, questions are finally being asked about where that virus came from and how it got out to devastate the entire world. But the real questions that must be asked get to the heart of Dr. Yan’s reporting: and those, as Rep. Brooks also tells us, involve the CCP-PLA’s extensive offensive biological weapons program. We know now that Beijing has both the intention and capability to weaponize viruses, using advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat) gene-editing technology.

As Dr. Yan has explained in a series of public reports, there is credible evidence that the COVID-19 virus displays features characteristic of “gain-of-function” work commonly utilized throughout China. Among such features is the furin polybasic cleavage site on the spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 genetic sequence that strongly suggests genetic manipulation because the amino acid sequence found there is not found in any other bat-related coronavirus and there is no known natural pathway by which such a segment could have emerged. In the simplest terms, this coronavirus’ extraordinary ability to bind to that place (the ACE-2 – angiotensin converting enzyme-2 – receptor) in human lungs most suited and most vulnerable to the SARS-CoV-2 seems to point directly at laboratory genetic manipulation designed intentionally to enhance this coronavirus’ infectiousness for human beings.

Dr. Yan’s medical credentials are notable: she holds medical degrees and a Ph.D. from multiple top medical universities in mainland China, including the Xiangya Medical College of Central South University in Changsha and the Southern Medical University in Guangzhou. She has published widely in peer-reviewed journals. After an early focus on ophthalmology, stem cell therapy, and inflammation and artificial tissue evaluation in animal models, Dr. Yang continued her work at the University of Hong Kong. In 2014, she joined the WHO H-5 reference lab at the U. of Hong Kong, then led by Dr. Malik Peiris. Peiris is a Sri Lankan national with close ties to the entire CCP-PLA apparatus as well as the international research community, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). There at the WHO H-5 lab, Dr. Yang began working under Dr. Peiris in virology, focusing on viral infectious diseases, influenza vaccine development, and immunology. It was through this work at the U. of Hong Kong and the extensive linkage of its WHO reference lab with the network of CCP-PLA military labs in mainland China that Dr. Yang became aware of the CCP regime’s offensive BW program. By 2019, Dr. Yan was asked to investigate the origins of the new virus then beginning to spread across Wuhan, the capital of Hubei Province in central mainland China. Once she realized the menace of that BW program and the likely origins within it of what became known as SARS-CoV-2 and its ramifications for the rest of the world, Dr. Yan began to raise the alarm to her supervisor. This inevitably flagged her to the CCP authorities and resulted in warnings that she could be “disappeared” if she did not stop speaking of such things. By April 2020, Dr. Yan knew she had to flee Hong Kong and came to the U.S., where she now resides, pending an asylum claim.

We owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Li-Meng Yan, as well as to Congressman Mo Brooks, for their courage in alerting the U.S. and indeed, the rest of the world, to the growing threat of China’s dangerous and unrestricted BW program.

Europeans Obviously Value Freedom More Than Us!

‘There is no greatness where there is not simplicity, goodness, and truth.’ – Leo Tolstoy


Once again Europeans in many major cities came out in the tens of thousands this past weekend, as also previous weekends, in protest of continuous draconian lockdowns, mask mandates and Covid passports!

Meanwhile in America we see so many people masking up again like sheep. Cities here want to return to their draconian mandates with little to no protests. People just seem to be ready to do as ordered!! Regardless that many know it is junk science. The MSM is trying to shame the un-vaxed and businesses like the cruise industry is attempting to make them second class citizens. Not a peep from the so called ‘we, the people!!’

Like they said in the Nazi prison camps :- ‘It’s only a shower folks. Go on in. Bring your kids. It won’t kill you. Just do as you are told. Don’t protest. We are from the government and we are here to help!! Trust us!’

Meanwhile in Europe brave people are taking to the streets, weekend after weekend in ever increasing numbers. In London, Rome, Athens, Paris, Dublin and other cities. People have had enough. They are done with the whole Chinese Virus thing and the vaccine passports that are being required are the final straw that broke the camels back.

In Paris alone over 160,000 people took to the streets, sharply up from the 114,000 the week before. They were incensed at future legislation before the French Government that would set up the vaccine passport as well as mandate the vaccine for all health workers. In order to enter restaurants, businesses and any public areas, people would have to show their vaccine passport.

Apparently the French government has ignored the people and passed the legislation this past Monday regardless so I am sure that the protests there will continue and may get more aggressive. I guess the French administration and the Biden administration have one thing in common – their complete disregard of their citizens wishes and the feeling obviously they, the elite, know better. Regardless of the science. The reality can be summed up below. Three words…..

CONTROL. CONTROL. CONTROL. CONTROL.

POWER. POWER. POWER. POWER.

MONEY. MONEY. MONEY. MONEY.

In the Italian cities of Rome, Verona, Naples and Milan thousands gathered to protest against the vaccine passport that would have to be carried and shown to enter any public space like a fair, market, stadiums, restaurant etc.

In Dublin thousands rallied to call for the end of draconian lock downs and masking rules.

In London thousands once again took to the streets protesting the authoritarian measures. The same in Athens where huge crowds protested outside parliament.

Protests were largely peaceful apart from France where police used tear gas on the protestors near the capital’s Gare Saint-Lazare railway station after protesters knocked over a police motorbike ridden by two officers.

It seems strange to me that in the supposed land of the free here in the good old US of A we are meekly accepting the lies, blatant untruths etc. although we know that the draconian and authoritarian rules are contrary to our constitutional rights – yet we accept it.

Even as we know that all the statistics are wrong ( the tests cannot differentiate between flu and the Chinese virus) and everything else doesn’t make sense.

Things like, “it’s only for a few weeks” and “it’s only a mask” or as it became “it’s only two masks” and then “get the shot, nope, make that two shots, oh hold on, you need a booster!” Then of course “once you get the shot no more masks” which becomes “mask up regardless, inside and outside.” I could go on and on but this Administration and their lying Dr Fauci make me sick to my stomach. Everyday they move the goal posts in their desire to control us. As I said above, most Americans just seem to want to fall into line and not stand up strong and proud.

I also know that in Europe the protestors will eventually win. They are determined to get some or all of their liberties and rights back. Some will be arrested, heck, maybe a few may die, but they are over this whole Chinese Virus lie and masquerade.

Fauci Knew France Warned U.S. in 2015 About Wuhan Lab

Todays blog is a reprint of an article lifted from a reputable site and equally reputable author, Eleanor Bartow published July 26th. (The full link to the article with credits as always will be posted at the bottom of this article. ) Please read and share while you can from this blog as I am sure social media “fact checkers” (a.k.a. Liars) will dispute its findings.

France Warned US in 2015 About Wuhan Lab It Helped Build, Former COVID-19 Investigator Claims!

The U.S. federal government should have stopped funding research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in 2015 when China reduced its cooperation with the French in building and operating the lab, according to the leader of an investigation into COVID-19’s origins by the State Department under the Trump administration.

In 2015, French intelligence officials warned the U.S. State Department and their own foreign ministry that China was cutting back on agreed collaboration at the lab, former State official David Asher, now a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute think tank, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

By 2017, the French “were kicked out” of the lab and cooperation ceased, leading French officials to warn the State Department that they had grave concerns as to Chinese motivations, according to Asher.

The State Department alleged in January 2021, at the end of the Trump administration, that the Wuhan lab had engaged in classified research on behalf of the Chinese military since at least 2017.

The State Department did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

On Thursday, China said it would not allow the World Health Organization (WHO) to inspect the lab further. China has blocked the WHO from accessing important records at the lab.

“The Chinese basically sucked State into its honey pot operation to gain access to U.S. technology, knowledge, and material support. Classic. Just as they have done in every sector,” Asher said.

Between October 2009 and May 2019, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) provided $1.1 million to the U.S.-based EcoHealth Alliance for a sub-agreement with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to USAID. EcoHealth Alliance also received funding from the Department of Defense’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency that was subcontracted to the Wuhan lab, New York magazine reported. National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants to EcoHealth Alliance totaling $600,000 between 2014 and 2019 were subcontracted to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The NIH, Defense Department, and USAID should have stopped sending U.S. federal funding to the Wuhan lab back when the French warned the State Department in 2015, Asher said.

State Department officials “in charge of nonproliferation should have shut down all cooperation,” he added.

The Wuhan Institute of Virology, which is at the center of speculation that COVID-19 may have originated from a lab accident, was initiated in 2004 as a joint project between France and China.

France provided the lab’s design, biosafety training, and much of its technology.

The French envisioned the Wuhan institute as an open and transparent lab that would serve the global scientific community in studying potential pandemics, according to a State Department cable in April 2018, citing a Wuhan-based French consulate official who worked on science and technology cooperation with China.

While top French politicians supported the collaboration, French security and defense experts did not, the French newspaper Le Figaro reported.

National security officials did not want to share sensitive technology with an oppressive country that was not an ally and they feared the lab could one day be transformed into a “biological arsenal,” according to Le Figaro.

As early as 2009, the U.S. State Department, then under former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, expressed concerns about the Wuhan lab, asking what France knew of how China planned to “vet incoming foreign researchers” and avoid technology transfer to countries of biological weapons proliferation concern, according to emails released by WikiLeaks.

The project took more than a decade to complete, and in February 2017, high-level French and Chinese officials held a ceremony to mark the lab’s accreditation.

Then-French Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said at the time that it was a celebration of Franco-Chinese scientific cooperation.

To support the China-French project, France would make its technical expertise available to China to support the continuous improvement of the laboratory’s quality and safety, Cazeneuve added.

It would also budget 1 million euros per year for five years, he said.

That would fund about 50 French scientists to help train the Chinese lab workers, the director of Inserm, a French public research organization that helped set up the Wuhan lab, told the French magazine Science & Sante in May 2017.

However, little by little, the laboratory completely escaped the control of the French scientists who were, according to an agreement between Paris and Beijing, to supervise the work of the Chinese researchers in Wuhan, according to Le Figaro. The fifty French researchers who were to work in the lab for five years never left, the newspaper reported.

In January 2018, a State Department cable warned of a lack of highly trained technicians to operate the lab in a cable first reported by The Washington Post.

The U.S. officials who had visited the lab and made the warning via the cable were not permitted to return, because they were asking “too many questions,” according to Asher.

Ashli Babbitt’s Mom: Nancy Pelosi Orchestrated The Killing Of My Daughter

Ashli Babbit was murdered by a hijacked USG staging an election coup against the we the people. Murdered. And then Democrat party is shielding the murder and creating an fictional, alternative narrative in order to persecute those we stand in defense of our freedoms.

Ashli Babbitt’s mom: Nancy Pelosi orchestrated the killing of my daughter

After nearly eight months of questions and controversy surrounding the events of Jan. 6, the most prominent question remains unanswered: Who killed Ashli Babbitt?

By Tarra Snyder, Western Journalism, July 25, 2021: July 26, 2021:

Michelle Witthoeft, Babbitt’s mother, says Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is responsible for her daughter’s death.

“My daughter was a California constituent, and Nancy Pelosi not only, I feel like, orchestrated the death of my daughter.”

“I’ve reached out to Nancy Pelosi’s office several times, and she has yet to call me back because she’s too busy playing in her clubhouse with all of her elite people,” Witthoeft said.

She also reminded Nancy of her place in the government.

“You know, it’s the people’s house. It’s not your house, Nancy. It’s the people’s house. That’s my message to Nancy Pelosi,” Witthoeft said.

Despite the many claims of violence that occurred on Jan. 6, evidence has yet to surface suggesting Babbitt herself was reckless or threatening.

An earlier report from The Western Journal found that there had been no documented reports of Babbitt starting fires or attacking police officers.

Her mother wants to know who is responsible for her death.

“The Capitol Police should be held accountable like every other police department in the country.”

Witthoeft isn’t the only one fighting for Babbitt.

In a July 1 statement, former President Donald Trump asked only the following question: “Who shot Ashli Babbitt?”

Trump’s statement brought national awareness to the issue, causing Babbitt’s name to trend on Twitter.

Back in April, Babbitt’s family announced that they were suing the Capitol Police for “at least $10 million” in damages.

For the suit to be successful, the family would have to prove that the officer responsible had used “constitutionally unreasonable” force against Babbitt.

On April 14, after conducting an investigation, the Department of Justice released a statement on the matter.

“Prosecutors would have to prove not only that the officer used force that was constitutionally unreasonable, but that the officer did so ‘willfully,’ which the Supreme Court has interpreted to mean that the officer acted with a bad purpose to disregard the law,” the DOJ said.

“As this requirement has been interpreted by the courts, evidence that an officer acted out of fear, mistake, panic, misperception, negligence, or even poor judgment cannot establish the high level of intent required under Section 242.”

CDC Admits China Virus [COVID] Tests Results Wrong!

I received the following information posted in the next paragraph from a senior medical professional and wanted to share it with you. You may not be shocked because I was not. This whole charade and destruction of our freedoms and liberties, our economy and sense of self worth was intentional. Notice too that the MSM will most likely not publish this information. Please read it and share it before it is erased from everywhere the domestic enemy within can.

The CDC finally admits that the PCR tests do not differentiate between COVID and the flu. They are recalling these test due to the fact that there were too many “false positives”. They come out with this after a year and a half of stirring up the public and creating mass hysteria because no one is afraid of the flu. So how many documented Covid cases were nothing more that a severe flu? What percentage of cases were interpreted incorrectly? This explains why flu cases were almost nonexistent last year. I can tell you that running a clinic, that we usually do tons of flu tests during flu season. Last year, 2020, I did one, for the entire flu season!! Every other test we did for respiratory symptoms was a Covid test. I have been screaming this for over a year, questioning the effectiveness of the PCR test, and I was labeled, as always, the conspiracy theorist. Well here it is straight from the CDC website.

FACT CHECK THAT ZUCKERBURG!

From the Division of lab services part of the CDC website comes the following admission. The link will be posted below.

Audience: Individuals Performing COVID-19 Testing

Level: Laboratory Alert

After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives.

Visit the FDA website for a list of authorized COVID-19 diagnostic methods. For a summary of the performance of FDA-authorized molecular methods with an FDA reference panel, visit this page.

In preparation for this change, CDC recommends clinical laboratories and testing sites that have been using the CDC 2019-nCoV RT-PCR assay select and begin their transition to another FDA-authorized COVID-19 test. CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season. Laboratories and testing sites should validate and verify their selected assay within their facility before beginning clinical testing.

SO THERE WE HAVE IT!

Now with the Delta variation and I am sure others to come as they work their way through the Greek Alphabet, what will you believe?

I suggest nothing! They cannot and should not be trusted at all. The destruction of our beloved Constitutional Republic is their sole aim.

Democrats: ‘We’re F**ked’ with Election Integrity Laws in 18 States

The coup party of treason, hatred, election fraud, oppression, political persecution and censorship must be defeated. It’s the only way to save the Republic.

Free and fair elections is where we plant our flag.

Democrats: ‘We’re F***ed’ with Election Integrity Laws in 18 States

Democrats are worried about winning the 2022 midterm elections after Republican state legislatures reformed 30 election integrity laws in 18 states and additional legislation may come.
By: Wendell Husebø Breitbart News, January 25, 2021:CEO of the Stacey Abrams-founded New Georgia Project, Nsé Ufot, told Politico, “If there isn’t a way for us to repeat what happened in November 2020, we’re f—ed.”Latosha Brown, cofounder of Black Voters Matter, told Politico that“hope is quickly turning into frustration.” She then asked, “When in the hell are those who claim that they are committed to democracy going to show up to protect those that protect democracy?”Along with the multitude of states that have successfully passed new election integrity measures, such as voting ID. and early voting requirements, more than 400 bills with election integrity provisions have “been introduced in 49 states in the 2021 legislative sessions.”Other states with pending legislative sessions, such as California, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Maine, still have election integrity measures waiting to be passed.The Republicans’ successful approach has caused President Joe Biden and his congressional allies to push legislation to federalize state and local elections, putting more power in Washington via wresting control from local communities where accountability is greatest.

But Senate Republicans defeated Biden’s so-called “For the People Act” by a filibuster in June. The defeat has thrown the battle over election integrity back to the states, where “the restrictions advanced by Republicans affect so many facets of voting that Democrats cannot agree on which provisions are the most problematic.”

Democrat chaos has resulted in smiling, maskless Texas House Democrats on a plane fleeing Texas to stunt election integrity efforts in the state, which would have placed additional restrictions on voting by mail, creating new ID requirements, and expanding the freedoms for partisan poll watchers.

“As soon as they come back in the state of Texas, they will be arrested, they will be cabined inside the Texas Capitol until they get their job done,” Gov. Greg Abbott (R) responded to the stunt.

“Texas Democrats were out of moves, and the only thing they could do to deny quorum was to take their families and leave the state in the middle of the night,” Ufot stated. “That’s the kind of response and leadership that this moment requires, and I am waiting for the administration to match the energy of state and local Democrats across the country who are fighting these fights.”
