The Endless Third World Invasion of the United States

You can be in the country illegally, you can have an extensive criminal history, you can have multiple criminal convictions for serious offenses, and there is nothing that we can do to touch you. – Chris Crane, president of the ICE Council, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents’ union

A country isn’t sovereign if we can’t control who comes in and who’s allowed to come in. – Phyllis Schlafly

Immigration laws are the only laws that are discussed in terms of how to help people who break them. – Thomas Sowell

57 percent of all households that are led by an immigrant (legal or illegal) are enrolled in at least one welfare program. – Michael Snyder


To hell with sovereignty, justice and the safety of America’s citizenry.  Open borders allow cheap labor for American corporations, especially Koch Industries.  Libertarians Charles and David Koch bequeath massive election donations to many Republicans, and now to some Democrats, to keep our southern border a sieve. Enriching Republican coffers allows Koch Industries to be able to hire cheap foreign labor, whether legal or illegal.

Tucker Carlson recently had a six-minute segment exposing the Koch brothers. They consider controlling the border as racist, the notion of “America first” as fascist, and that drugs should be legalized, but what he didn’t tell you was that these Libertarians are devout pro-aborts, and heavily fund organizations promoting a new Constitutional Convention. Link and Link.  Statesmen like the 55 delegates who attended the 1787 Convention would be impossible to find today.  Amnesty remains the Koch brothers’ top priority, anathema to America’s citizenry and job security.  The Koch brothers hold views that have no resemblance whatsoever to what most conservative Constitutionalists believe.

Criminal Invasion

Our Senate Republicans are now weaker than Barack Obama was on the border. The criminal element, including child sex traffickers, MS-13 gang members, drug cartels, terrorists and third world country diseases, long ago eliminated in America, are just collateral damage to those who profit from illegal aliens.

Department of Homeland Security documents produced for the House Oversight Committee revealed that in October of 2018, the Customs and Border Patrol’s Office of Intelligence tracked one caravan with approximately 8,000 migrants who arrived just south of California by December of 2018 and established that 660 of the migrants had U.S. criminal convictions, and at least three are murderers.

President Trump declared a national emergency in February of this year to divert funds from the Pentagon to build a border wall, yet the Democrats are fighting him at every turn.  Congress also refuses to change the dangerous asylum laws attracting these migrants.  New voters…draining the country’s taxpayers dry.

Third World Diseases in America

It’s not just mumps, measles, scabies, the flu, strep throat, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, different viruses, polio, Chagas disease, tuberculosis along with the possibility of typhus that border agents have to deal with, now it is the deadly Ebola virus from African illegals.  They made their way to the U.S. via Ecuador.  Hundreds of illegals from the Ebola ridden Congo and Angola have been dumped in San Antonio, Texas with 350 more on the way.  They made it across the Rio Grande River more than two weeks ago.

After being placed in San Antonio, the illegal immigrants are bused to a destination of their choice by local charities who spend “roughly $14,000 a week on bus tickets.  Interim Assistant City Manager Dr. Colleen Bridger said another 2,300 from the Congo and Angola will be coming to San Antonio and it’s overwhelming the city.  When she asked Portland, Oregon to take some of them, they refused, saying they were already overwhelmed.

The World Health Organization said one in four Ebola infections in the Congo are going undetected and that the country is experiencing the second-worst Ebola epidemic on record.  Yet, we are transferring these illegals throughout our country.  Ebola spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission.
The virus may linger in men’s semen for more than two years; a new study suggests, but none of these Congo illegals are tested for disease.

Even if Ebola isn’t an issue, there’s plenty of other contagious diseases from other parts of the world that are almost unheard of in the US. And right now, immigration agents are so overwhelmed with the sheer number of migrants that it’s difficult for them to conduct full-blown medical screenings.

The situation underscores the need for the federal government to put proper medical screenings in place to ensure that no one slips through the border undetected with a contagious health condition.

During European immigration to the U.S. through Ellis Island, if anyone was ill, they were quarantined for 40 days. Back then, if it was a spreadable disease, they were sent back to their country of origin to protect America’s citizens. Ellis Island was opened in 1892, and shut in 1954.

Legal immigrants receive medical examinations before they can enter the country, but not the illegals flooding our border and pleading asylum. In Texas, 550 African migrants were just caught and the Texas DHS head says they aren’t being screened for Ebola.

Who Funded the Trip?

Why isn’t the media asking who funded the airline trips for these people, and the food and necessities for this long trek from the Congo? Who is organizing these massive cross-continent trips aimed at helping hundreds of refugees to cross over our border, and if they are legitimate arrivals, what medical vetting is taking place before they make the trip?  None!

They didn’t swim across the Atlantic, that’s for sure.

Watch this French speaking Swiss journalist asking the Congolese illegals how they got here and who paid for it, despite the fact they have rolls of hundred dollar bills in their pockets.  They would not answer him as you can see in this five-minute video.

Note that these Congolese are saying, “Now we’re here, give us money to survive.”  They are given a paper telling them not to cooperate with ICE, that they are the police from the government.  Portland, Maine is being repopulated with these illegals and can’t accept more.

Los Angeles, California

Typhus, and even bubonic plague are showing up in Los Angeles.  Why?  In October of 2017, former California Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill that made all of California a sanctuary state.  According to the California Hospital Association, in 2014 health care for illegal aliens cost state taxpayers well over $1 billion a year. Eighty-four hospitals across California have already been forced to close because of unpaid bills by illegal aliens.  Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona have a crisis equally as dire.  The Texas Governor recently ordered 1,000 National Guard troops to the border.

Trash is a growing problem for residents in Los Angeles and as the garbage piles up, so do the rats, fueling concerns about flea-borne typhus, according to reports.

But the real problem is illegal alien homelessness and the trash and excrement from them living on the streets.  Deputy City Attorney Liz Greenwood, a veteran prosecutor, told NBC4 she was diagnosed with typhus in November, after experiencing high fevers and excruciating headaches.  Greenwood believes she contracted typhus from fleas in her office at City Hall East. Fleas often live on rats, which congregate in the many heaps of trash that are visible across the city of LA, and are a breeding ground for typhus.  Last year set a new record for the number of typhus cases, 124 in LA County for the year, according to the California Department of Public Health, and this does not even consider the health risks from mountains of human feces in San Francisco.

Dr. Drew Pinsky predicts a major infectious disease epidemic in filthy Los Angeles this summer, putting at risk thousands of lives.  Even the New York Times admits these Democrat run cities are unlivable.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary McAleenan

Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan accused McAleenan of resisting ICE and leaking about upcoming raids to the media prior to their taking place.  The nationwide operation was aimed at over 2,000 who have defied orders of removal and are remaining in the country illegally. The Washington Post and other media have reported that McAleenan doesn’t support the operation.

Five officials who spoke with the Washington Examiner confirmed McAleenan’s decision to go rogue and stymie the operation was what prompted the White House to call off the operation.  They said ICE was set to begin raids with court-ordered removals in 10 cities, including Houston, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles.  Trump now says Congress has two weeks to reach a solution. Good luck with that!

One official claimed McAleenan “cares more about what liberals, the media, and ‘Never Trumpers’ in Congress think of him than achieving the express mission of his department.”

McAleenan needs to hear, “You’re fired.”

Tom Homan said he was glad when President Trump tweeted that the ICE agency would begin “removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the U.S.”  He said, “I’ve been pushing for months for ICE to conduct a nationwide deportation operation like the one the president has announced, to include family units that have been given their due process rights at great taxpayer expense and have been ordered removed by a federal judge.”

Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) claims Trump’s pledge to begin “removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States” is being received with skepticism by former and current Trump supporters who have been alienated or disappointed by Trump’s numerous broken campaign promises on immigration.  They believe Trump’s tweet is also new posturing designed to pressure Democrats into joining the Trump-Kushner-Graham Amnesty deal for millions of illegals about which ALIPAC is working to warn Americans.

Easy Access and Benefits for Illegals

News reports have indicated that Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has been allowing migrants to board flights using a ‘Form I-862, Notice to Appear,’ which informs a released illegal alien of when to appear in court and is not one of the 15 forms of identification TSA accepts for air travel,” the conservative lawmakers wrote in a letter to DHS. “The safety and security of the American public should always be our priority.”

The Center for Immigration Studies states that the cost in 2018 per illegal alien was $69,570, or $69.6 billion per million illegal immigrants.  I would guess there are 60 million or more now in our country, how much is that costing us?  The American taxpayer is being raped by lawbreakers.

Democratic presidential candidate Kirstin Gillibrand wants to expand Social Security to people living in the United States illegally.  She is an immigration hawk and wants illegals to have the same rights as citizens.

Nancy Pelosi has actually thanked the parents of “Dreamers” for illegally bringing their children to America.

Since an illegal immigrant under former President Obama’s executive action can now get a Social Security number, the immigrant road map is clear, they may receive the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) without ever having paid taxes.  The EITC is the one that is responsible for billions in fraudulent refunds.

Judicial Watch reports that transgender illegal aliens get special treatment and hormone therapy, which isn’t cheap, under a policy started by Obama and continued by Trump’s Border Czar.  ICE gives transgender illegal aliens their own detention center in New Mexico that offers hair and makeup classes, a recreation area, gym, television rooms, a lab and pharmacy.

Just this month, the New York State Assembly passed a bill that would allow illegal immigrants in America to obtain driver’s licenses.

The Supreme Court has ruled that an immigrant living in the U.S. illegally who had a gun, a crime, can’t be prosecuted if he didn’t know he was in the country illegally. Huh? In a 7-2 decision the justices said in a crime where the status of a person is the “crucial element” to the offense, the government must prove the person was aware of that. Otherwise, it might just be an innocent mistake. The ruling could affect thousands of previous convictions.

Top all this off, with the National Review’s defense of birthright citizenship.  Neo-con founder William F. Buckley was a CFR member, a Yale Skull and Bonesman, and a CIA Agent, so this is not surprising, although there is nothing in the 14th amendment that guarantees birthright citizenship.  The anchor baby scam was invented 35 years ago by liberal zealot, Justice William Brennan, who slipped a footnote into a 1982 Supreme Court opinion announcing that the children born to illegals on U.S. soil are citizens.  Unconstitutional poppycock.

Conclusion

Laws are meaningless if there are no consequences or deterrence for violating them.

Illinois: Men convert to Islam, plot jihad mass murder, talk of dropping gays from Sears Tower

Where did Joseph D. Jones and Edward Schimenti learn about Islam? Has their local mosque been investigated? Why not?

“Two suburban men guilty of providing support to Islamic State,” by Jon Seidel, Chicago Sun-Times, June 20, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The FBI descended on their north suburban home in a raid two years ago that began with a “boom,” neighbors said.

Then, the feds unveiled a 77-page criminal complaint in April 2017 that accused Joseph D. Jones and Edward Schimenti of sharing gruesome Islamic State videos online, fantasizing about the ISIS flag “on top of the White House” and, crucially, collecting cellphones they thought could be used as detonators by terrorists overseas.

Now, the 37-year-old Zion men have been found guilty of a conspiracy to provide material support to the Islamic State. A jury convicted them Thursday after more than a day and a half of deliberations, ending their roughly three-week trial.

The jury also found Schimenti guilty of lying to the FBI about a matter involving international terrorism. Both men face significant prison time at sentencing hearings that have not been scheduled.

Schimenti and Jones looked sullen after U.S. District Judge Andrea Wood read the verdict Thursday afternoon. Jones’ lawyer, Patrick Boyle, later told reporters he was disappointed. It’s rare for a terrorism case to go to trial at the Dirksen Federal Courthouse. And in the lead-up to this one, defense attorneys convinced the judge they should be allowed to present an entrapment defense to the jury….

Prosecutors said Jones shared Islamic State videos that depicted the deaths of people who were beheaded by a child soldier, drowned in a cage, and blown up by a rocket-propelled grenade while locked inside a vehicle. Another video demonstrated various ways to stab someone. It was titled, “Some of the Deadly Stabbing Ways: Do not Forget to Poison the Knife.”

Still, their lawyers argued, “this is all protected speech, [no] matter how morally objectionable it may seem. Supporting distasteful, objectionably horrible groups is in and of itself not a crime. In fact, it is protected by the Constitution.”

Schimenti crossed paths with one of the FBI’s confidential informants in November 2016, records show. He was led to believe the man was from Iraq and had a brother in ISIS. Schimenti told him he supported ISIS and, when the man said he wanted to return to the Middle East to fight for the group, Schimenti introduced him to Jones.

Schimenti also met the man at a gym for physical training exercises, records show. There, Schimenti told the man about ISIS videos and how their fighters trained hard, even “jumping through fire.” He told the man, “inshallah [God willing] the brothers will just have me be the one to cut the neck.”

Ultimately, Schimenti and Jones helped that man collect cellphones they thought would be used as detonators, introduced him to an undercover fed they believed would get him overseas, and then drove the man to O’Hare Airport to begin his journey on April 7, 2017.

Schimenti allegedly told the man to “drench that land with they, they blood.”

During the investigation, an undercover fed asked Jones if he ever thought about joining ISIS. Jones replied, “every night and day,” court records show. Schimenti also fantasized about how, under Islamic law, they could put gay people “on top of Sears Tower and we drop you,” according to the feds.

“I want to see blood flowing, whatever way,” Schimenti said….

Trump Calls Off Strike Against Iran — Here’s the Bigger Picture

President Trump called off a retaliatory strike against Iran after Iran shot down a highly sophisticated American drone flying over the Strait of Hormuz.

The president revealed that three strikes were planned against targets in Iran but before giving the U.S. military the go-ahead, the president asked the general in charge how many Iranians would be killed as a result of the strikes.

After hearing that 150 would be killed, the president decided that such a price would be too high to pay and disproportional to the destruction of an unmanned drone.

The president reiterated that not only did the U.S. currently impose crippling sanctions on Iran, but that more were coming – and the military option was still on the table for the future.

Most foreign policy experts agreed with the president, including on both sides of the political divide.

“Trump is still imposing crippling sanctions on Iran,” Michael Doran, a former White House official in the George W. Bush administration, said. “The big fight, the strategic fight, is about keeping those sanctions in place until we win on the nuclear question. Tit-for-tat over a drone is minor by comparison.”

The president emphasized that the U.S.’ problems with Iran are not about keeping the Strait of Hormuz open, as the U.S. is the largest producer of oil in the world. Closing the Strait would harm China the most, as well as Japan and Indonesia.

Rather, the entire issue is about Iran not acquiring nuclear weapons – a red line for Trump.

Meanwhile, Clarion will continue to keep you informed and give you the bigger picture about the developments in the Middle East as they unfold.

Below is an infographic that lets you quickly see the extent and magnitude of Iranian provocations against the U.S. and our allies the last month.

WATCH: 2016 Bulgarian Documentary on Deep State support of ISIS under Obama

Posted by Eeyore.

When our Bulgarian translator, Tanya T., did this for us, we uploaded it to YouTube and it vanished in minutes with no explanation. No CR infringement or other reason, it just was taken down.

Then we tried the other traditional platforms, LiveLeak etc. and the same thing happened on all of them. Stunningly, even on minds.com, although it reappeared there after some time.

It initially lasted an hour or so at Minds.com if I recall correctly.

After the 2016 election, we tried again with more success. It was not pulled as fast or at all from some platforms but I wanted it out there on a torrent based one like d-Tube.

Now that it is clear that the Obama administration knew that the attack on the US embassy in Benghazi was an Al-Qaeda/nascent Islamic State attack, and, they they knew it was coming 10 days before it happened, what you see in this documentary becomes more than interesting. It becomes obvious.

Clearly the Obama-Clinton Kabul was running weapons and supplies to the Islamic State or the proto-groups that made it up in Syria and Iraq as The Baron at Gates of Vienna speculated at the time.

What I did not know until half an hour ago in another interview with Brad Johnson that will be posted tonight, is that the killers of Ambassador Stephens, who was murdered in the US embassy in Benghazi, paraded his corpse around the city naked, with a stick up his behind.

This was also covered up by the Clinton Crime cartel.

Brad will discuss this in the interview to be posted as soon as I have it uploaded.

Virginia: D.C. area police officer converts to Islam, sends money to ISIS

Have authorities investigated who taught Nicholas Young about Islam? Have they looked into what is being taught at the mosque he attended? Why not?

“Ex-police officer again gets 15 years on terror conviction,” Associated Press, June 21, 2019 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — UPDATE (12:52 p.m. June 21): A former police officer caught in a sting trying to help the Islamic State by purchasing $200 in gift cards for them will serve 15 years in prison, even though some of his convictions were tossed out on appeal.

Nicholas Young of Fairfax, Virginia, was sentenced to 15 years last year for obstruction of justice and attempting to provide support to a terrorist group….

Young was the first law enforcement officer charged with a federal terrorism offense. He patrolled the D.C. region’s Metrorail system.

Defense, State Department Documents Reveal Obama Administration Knew that al Qaeda Terrorists Had Planned Benghazi Attack 10 Days in Advance

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR), and had been planned at least 10 days in advance. Rahman is known as the Blind Sheikh, and is serving life in prison for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other terrorist acts.  The new documents also provide the first official confirmation that shows the U.S. government was aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria.  The documents also include an August 2012 analysis warning of the rise of ISIS and the predicted failure of the Obama policy of regime change in Syria.

The documents were released in response to a court order in accordance with a May 15, 2014, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against both the DOD and State Department seeking communications between the two agencies and congressional leaders “on matters related to the activities of any agency or department of the U.S. government at the Special Mission Compound and/or classified annex in Benghazi” (Judicial Watch v U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Department of State(No. 1:14-cv-00812)).

Spelling and punctuation is duplicated in this release without corrections.

Defense Department document from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), dated September 12, 2012, the day after the Benghazi attack, details that the attack on the compound had been carefully planned by the BOCAR terrorist group “to kill as many Americans as possible.”  The document was sent to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Obama White House National Security Council.  The heavily redacted Defense Department “information report” says that the attack on the Benghazi facility “was planned and executed by The Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman (BCOAR).”  The group subscribes to “AQ ideologies:”

The attack was planned ten or more days prior on approximately 01 September 2012. The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for U.S. killing of Aboyahiye ((ALALIBY)) in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 atacks on the World Trade Center buildings.

“A violent radical,” the DIA report says, is “the leader of BCOAR is Abdul Baset ((AZUZ)), AZUZ was sent by ((ZAWARI)) to set up Al Qaeda (AQ) bases in Libya.”  The group’s headquarters was set up with the approval of a “member of the Muslim brother hood movement…where they have large caches of weapons.  Some of these caches are disguised by feeding troughs for livestock.  They have SA-7 and SA-23/4 MANPADS…they train almost every day focusing on religious lessons and scriptures including three lessons a day of jihadist ideology.”

The Defense Department reported the group maintained written documents, in “a small rectangular room, approximately 12 meters by 6 meters…that contain information on all of the AQ activity in Libya.”

(Azuz is again blamed for the Benghazi attack in an October 2012 DIA document.)

The DOD documents also contain the first official documentation that the Obama administration knew that weapons were being shipped from the Port of Benghazi to rebel troops in Syria. An October 2012 report confirms:

Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, and 125 mm and 155mm howitzers missiles.

During the immediate aftermath of, and following the uncertainty caused by, the downfall of the ((Qaddafi)) regime in October 2011 and up until early September of 2012, weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles located in Benghazi, Libya were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the ports of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The Syrian ports were chosen due to the small amount of cargo traffic transiting these two ports. The ships used to transport the weapons were medium-sized and able to hold 10 or less shipping containers of cargo.

The DIA document further details:

The weapons shipped from Syria during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s and 125mm and 155mm howitzers missiles.  The numbers for each weapon were estimated to be: 500 Sniper rifles, 100 RPG launchers with 300 total rounds, and approximately 400 howitzers missiles [200 ea – 125mm and 200ea – 155 mm.]

The heavily redacted document does not disclose who was shipping the weapons.

Another DIA report, written in August 2012 (the same time period the U.S. was monitoring weapons flows from Libya to Syria), said that the opposition in Syria was driven by al Qaeda and other extremist Muslim groups: “the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.” The growing sectarian direction of the war was predicted to have dire consequences for Iraq, which included the “grave danger” of the rise of ISIS:

The deterioration of the situation has dire consequences on the Iraqi situation and are as follows:

This creates the ideal atmosphere for AQI [al Qaeda Iraq] to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi, and will provide a renewed momentum under the presumption of unifying the jihad among Sunni Iraq and Syria, and the rest of the Sunnis in the Arab world against what it considers one enemy, the dissenters. ISI could also declare an Islamic state through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory.

Some of the “dire consequences” are blacked out but the DIA presciently warned one such consequence would be the “renewing facilitation of terrorist elements from all over the Arab world entering into Iraqi Arena.”

From a separate lawsuit, the State Department produced a document created the morning after the Benghazi attack by Hillary Clinton’s offices, and the Operations Center in the Office of the Executive Secretariat that was sent widely through the agency, including to Joseph McManus (then-Hillary Clinton’s executive assistant).  At 6:00 am, a few hours after the attack, the top office of the State Department sent a “spot report” on the “Attack on U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi” that makes no mention of videos or demonstrations:

Four COM personnel were killed and three were wounded in an attack by dozens of fighters on the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi beginning approximately 1550 Eastern Time….

The State Department has yet to turn over any documents from the secret email accounts of Hillary Clinton and other top State Department officials.

“These documents are jaw-dropping. No wonder we had to file more FOIA lawsuits and wait over two years for them.  If the American people had known the truth – that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other top administration officials knew that the Benghazi attack was an al-Qaeda terrorist attack from the get-go – and yet lied and covered this fact up – Mitt Romney might very well be president. And why would the Obama administration continue to support the Muslim Brotherhood even after it knew it was tied to the Benghazi terrorist attack and to al Qaeda? These documents also point to connection between the collapse in Libya and the ISIS war – and confirm that the U.S. knew remarkable details about the transfer of arms from Benghazi to Syrian jihadists,” stated Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president.  “These documents show that the Benghazi cover-up has continued for years and is only unraveling through our independent lawsuits. The Benghazi scandal just got a whole lot worse for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”

What to Do with Iran?

The recent attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman and the shooting down of a U.S. military surveillance drone over the Strait of Hormuz has created tension in the region while the world is watching what the Trump administration’s proper response should be against the perpetrator, the Islamic Republic and its terrorist paramilitary group, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

Many experts and pundits have been busy all day making assumptions of what the Trump response will be or should be. The IRGC commander-in-chief Maj-Gen Hossein Salami confirmed the attack on the U.S. spy drone and warned the US to respect Iran’s territorial integrity.

Meanwhile, President Trump told reporters that he believed that Iran unintentionally shot down an American spy drone Thursday, calling the move “a very big mistake.”

Well, I am not a mind reader and I don’t know what the Trump administration is going to do in retaliation. But, I am fully confident that the attack on the drone was without a doubt intentional and there is no mistake about it. The question is what to do next!!

I don’t believe we need to go to war with the Islamic regime over a drone. We must exercise restraint from any temptation to attack any part of Iran’s soil with cruise missiles, yet, we cannot let the regime get away without any punishment.

Here are my suggestions:

The Islamic Republic is highly isolated, sanctions are working and economically they are one step away from becoming another Venezuela.  This brutal regime is on the verge of collapse. By attacking the IRI militarily, we will give them new life. It is my conviction that a military attack against Iran should not even be the last card on the table. Any such move, either by Israel, the U.S., or a combination of both, will trigger a kind of turmoil that can set the region ablaze. And the blaze will most assuredly scorch Israel and hugely damage the U.S.

If we must retaliate, let’s just make a limited attack on their oil rigs and a few warships as former President Ronald Reagan did in 1988. Besides, the military option can always be exercised.

A sanction is a punishment levied on another nation, or on individual citizens of another country. It is an important foreign policy and economic pressure that can be described as a sort of carrot-and-stick approach to deal with international trade and politics.

There are still those who are against sanctions for a variety of reasons. Some say that sanctions cannot be effectively enforced; others claim that sanctions have never worked in the past and won’t work in the future. These nay-sayers never come up with any practical or viable alternative.

The sanctions clearly hurt the Iranian people. No question about that. Yet, a temporary hurt of this nature is a price that people are willing to pay to get rid of this scourge of the IRI. These Mullahs are determined to get their bloody hands on the atomic bomb and further strengthen their position in promoting violence and mayhem in the Middle East and beyond. In the process, the Iranian people will end up being victimized.  President Trump must step up the pressure on the IRI. Once the IRI falls, the lynchpin of Islamism will be destroyed. America, Israel, and the rest of the world will be hugely safer without the end-of-the-worlder Mullahs being in command with nuclear weapons at their disposal.

There’s also a general agreement that sanctions have worked, gripping Iran financially and bringing its leaders to the negotiating table. As mentioned, Iran’s economy is, by any measure, in terrible shape. If we shut down Iran’s oil industry, that would do the trick. That would be the end of this brutal regime. I believe we need to stick with the plan and don’t take the bait and go to war with a weak adversary.

The sanctions will also damage Iran’s power to export goods like pistachios and its famous Persian rugs. The most significant impact of the sanctions may be the number of European companies that will stop doing business with Iran.

In short:  we must realize if the mullahs get the bomb, they will make use of it in numerous ways. They will use it for blackmail, they will use it in small packages through untraceable proxies, and they might even launch it by their missiles in a homicide-suicide fashion which is their trademark.

EXCLUSIVE VIDEOS: Interview with a Convicted ISIS Terrorist — Justified!

Part 1:

Younes Delefortrie is a convicted terrorist. Is revenge ever justifiable? He seems to think so. Younes Delefortrie, who will feature in Clarion’s upcoming film, expounds on the extremist call for revenge. Michael “Younnes” Delefortrie is a Belgian jihadi and former ISIS fighter currently in jail in Belgium. We interviewed him days before he was incarcerated. Delefortrie was interviewed by Shoshana Palatnik and Wayne Kopping.

Part 2:

Younes Delefortrie justifies extremist’s use of children- “If you kill us…it doesn’t matter because there’s a next generation.” This powerful clip highlights the cynical abuse of kids by jihadi groups.

South Carolina: Man converts to Islam, plants bombs disguised as teddy bears for children to find

Yet another convert to Islam gets the idea that his new, peaceful religion requires him to commit treason and mass murder. Authorities the world over maintain a steadfast indifference regarding this ongoing phenomenon.

“‘YOU’RE NO LONGER SAFE’ ISIS maniac, 27, disguised ‘lethal’ shrapnel bombs as teddy bears and dumped them in US streets where kids could find them,” by Christy Cooney, The Sun, June 18, 2019:

An ISIS supporter disguised potentially lethal bombs as household items and left them in the street for members of the public to find.

Wesley Dallas Ayers, 27, planted three real bombs, including one disguised as a teddy bear, and three fake ones around South Carolina.

The FBI has now released images of the disturbing packages planted by Ayers, who was given a 30-year prison sentence in February.

One man received minor burns to his leg after a wicker basket he had noticed glowing while driving with his daughter exploded.

Police later discovered a note written in Arabic and referencing Osama bin Laden.

In the following weeks, two more genuine bombs were found by members of the public but rendered safe by law enforcement.

The teddy-shaped bomb was found left in the road, its eyes also glowing to make it visible.

FBI Special Agent Christopher Derrickson said: “This was deliberately placed where a child or passerby could have found it.

“Fortunately, someone saw it and knew to call us.”

Three hoax objects were also found in different locations with notes declaring that the community was no longer safe.

One object designed to resemble a bomb was left in a black box containing a letter pledging allegiance to the Islamic State….

NEW YORK WILL PROVIDE ILLEGAL ALIENS WITH DRIVER’S LICENSES: Where is Gov. Cuomo’s MVP Award from terrorists?

On June 18, 2019 The New York Daily News reported, “Cuomo signs bill granting undocumented immigrants access to New York driver’s licenses despite 11th-hour concerns.”

Incredibly, the concerns were not about how this might impact national security, public safety or the immigration crisis on the border, but about how information in the DMV databases might help the federal government to enforce immigration laws and what needs to be done to prevent this from happening!

This is not the first time that the New York State legislature attempted to provide driver’s licenses for illegal aliens, but this time this dangerous and wrong-headed legislation has become the law of the state.

Back in 2007 then-New York State Governor Spitzer pushed for similar legislation that would have provided illegal aliens with driver’s licenses.

I testified before the New York State Senate on October 15, 2007 on that issue, in which I voiced my extreme opposition to the legislation.

When I addressed the hearing I noted that the preposterous claim made by proponents for issuing driver’s licenses, and an argument that was used during the most recent debate, is that since illegal aliens will drive “anyway” (with or without a license), a license would enable them to get insurance and they would learn to drive more safely. I told them that by this reasoning the State of New York should provide convicted felons with firearms training and carry permits since it is likely that they would also violate the laws and carry guns “anyway.” I then said that with proper training the criminals could improve their accuracy and thus would be less likely to hit innocent bystanders in a gun battle. Further, perhaps through training, they could be convinced to use trigger locks between bank robberies and drive-by shootings. With my tongue firmly embedded in my cheek I suggested that this would improve public safety immeasurably.

You can imagine their reactions!

The concerns I included in my prepared testimony then are as relevant today as they were then, with one additional critical factor: in the nearly 12 years since that hearing, while there have been no terror attacks carried out by international terrorists that involve the hijacking of airliners, there have been a string of deadly mass casualty terror attacks around the world and in the United States that involved terrorists using motor vehicles as weapons.

On June 14, 2019 the Justice Department announced the sentencing of a citizen of Yemen for his terrorist activities: “New York Man Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison for Attempting to Join ISIS in Yemen.”

The press release included this paragraph:

Following his return to the United States in September 2015, Naji continued to express his support for ISIS and violent jihad.  In July 2016, following the ISIS-inspired terrorist truck attack in Nice, France, that killed scores of innocent civilians, Naji told the CS how easy it would be to carry out a similar attack in Times Square, explaining that ISIS “want[s] an operation in Times Square” and stating that an ISIS “reconnaissance group . . . put up scenes of Times Square.”

Naji further explained, “if there is a truck, I mean a garbage truck and one drives it there to Times Square and crushes them . . . Times Square day.”

Terrorists have also used vehicles such cabs and passenger vans to conduct clandestine meetings and as a means of conducting covert surveillance on potential terror targets.

The TSA was created in the aftermath of the terror attacks of 9/11 and funded to the tune of billions of dollars. It currently employs more than 45,000 people and  maintains and uses so-called “No Fly Lists” to help prevent terrorists from gaining access to airliners.

Yet there are no “No Drive Lists” to prevent terrorists from being able to access cars and trucks.

Perhaps the efforts to enhance security in the commercial aviation sector have paid off or, perhaps the terrorists have simply shifted their methodology. In any event the use of motor vehicles as weapons has prompted cities to install numerous physical barriers to protect against such attacks but few barriers exist to prevent terrorists from gaining access to motor vehicles.

On August 20, 2018, CNN provided a synopsis of such attacks in an article, “Terrorist Attacks by Vehicle Fast Facts.”

Terrorists who have driver’s licenses don’t pose a risk only to those who live in the state where the license was issued. They can simply rent a car in New York and drive anywhere in the U.S. or travel to any other state and use their New York driver’s license to rent a car there.

Now New York, the state that by far suffered the greatest devastation on September 11, 2001 and has suffered other terror attacks, including one that involved a truck used to run down people on a bicycle path just blocks from the World Trade Center, will enthusiastically provide illegal aliens with driver’s licenses.

My dad taught me to drive. When he handed me the keys to our family car he told me that a car could be more lethal than a gun. And as we have seen all too frequently, that statement is accurate, dead accurate.

Continuing with my dad’s comparison of guns and cars, 18 U.S.C. § 922(g) is a federal law that prohibits certain individuals from possessing firearms that includes:

(5) who, being an alien- (A) is illegally and unlawfully in the United States; or (B) except as provided in subsection (y)(2), has been admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa (as that term is defined in section 101(a)(26) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. § 1101(a)(26)))

The penalty for violation of this law is a maximum of 10 years in jail.

New York City Penal Code similarly prohibits non U.S. citizens (aliens) from possessing firearms.

Why then should illegal aliens be given the privilege of driving motor vehicles when their very presence in the United States is a violation of law and we may never know their true identities?

Drivers licenses, however, convey more than the authority to drive motor vehicles.

Illegal aliens, criminals, fugitives and terrorists seek to acquire identity documents such as driver’s licenses, particularly under false names to conceal their true identities and their movements and provide them with an illusion of legitimacy to which they are certainly not entitled.

My earlier article, “Immigration And The Unlearned Lessons Of 9/11,” included the link to an important New York Times article, “Roosevelt Avenue, a Corridor of Vice,” which reported on the nexus between illegal immigration, crime (including human trafficking, prostitution, narcotics), and the use of false identity documents, primarily by illegal aliens.

“Undocumented Immigrants” generally have no authentic and reliable means of identifying themselves. The New York Times article noted how important it was for the NYPD to shut down the fraud document vendors because of the dangers associated with providing such individuals with identity documents. However, for local officials to provide illegal aliens with authentic driver’s licenses directly violates the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission which was behind the creation of the REAL ID Act.

It is all but impossible for state or local officials to properly determine the true identifies of “undocumented” aliens. Thus illegal aliens would be able to easily game the licensing procedures to acquire an actual driver’s license under false identities making the DMV no better than the fake document vendors who ply their trades in communities across the United States as described in the New York Times article I noted above.

It is remarkable that on August 4, 2004, MSNBC published an NBC report, “9/11 report light on ID theft issues,” which included this paragraph:

But in the nation’s most comprehensive look yet at what went wrong on Sept. 11., and what can be done to prevent the next terrorist attack, identity theft gets scarce mention. Buried deep within the 9/11 commission report — on about 10 pages, starting with page 393 — are suggestions for dealing with the deeply connected problems of terrorism and identity fraud.

Then there was this disconcerting paragraph:

Terrorism and identity theft go hand in hand, experts say.  The al-Qaida training manual includes provisions for trainees to leave camp with five fake personas, says Collins, who uses a copy of the manual to train law enforcement officials. Terrorists are regularly schooled in the art of subsisting off credit card fraud while living in the United States, Collins said.

In the hands of an illegal alien, a driver’s license may well become a license to kill.

The Islamic Curtain, and Ours

Matthew Hanley: Much of the West is unconsciously displaying a death wish, with which Islam is quite happy to cooperate.


I have a running argument with someone who is allergic to emphatically expressed truths.  I too admire the artistry of understated rhetoric and know that brusqueness can sometimes be counterproductive. But I tend to like robust speech as well – as long as it is true.

For example, Fr. Zakaria Botros, a Coptic priest who has labored courageously to lead souls to Christ from Islam, which he describes as “the biggest hoax perpetrated on the human race in 1400 years”.

That’s quite a statement. And a challenge to those of us who reflexively assume Islam to be one of the world’s “great religions.” Does he say this out of malice, or ignorance?  Far from it.  He says that many Muslims genuinely seeking truth wind up at that same life-changing conclusion. Fr. Botros specifies that he is driven to“attack Islam, not to attack Muslims but to save them because they are deceived. As I love Muslims, I hate Islam.”

The problem here is not his frankness, but that very few of us are knowledgeable about Islam, and therefore can’t even begin to evaluate his claim. Theodore Dalrymple, who is not Christian, is one of those few; he concludes that Islamism “is so stupid, so preposterous and intellectually nugatory, and so appallingly catastrophic in its actual effects, that it makes one almost nostalgic for the days of Marxism,” while hastening to add that this “is, alas, no obstacle to its spread.”

Hard words, to be sure. But what if these bold assessments are true?  Churchill famously lamented that an “Iron Curtain” imprisoned countless souls east of Berlin. Many appreciated his point back then – that communism is stifling and inhumane. Far fewer today seem perturbed that millions languish behind a similarly suffocating Islamic curtain.

Churchill also believed that slavery would not go extinct as long as Islam held sway, owing to the way it canonically devalues and subjugates women.  As much as we profess to detest slavery and the mistreatment of women, the lack of hue and cry about standard practices in Islamic communities is curious indeed. Are we supposed to make exceptions on such basic moral matters for Islam?

The West shrugs at Islamic infiltration in part because it is essentially indifferent to what Islam produces on its own soil. That is not a Christian stance – but what does the West care about Christianity anymore? Many people seem to think our secular wasteland represents an advance upon outdated Christian virtues.  Indeed, the same anti-Christian animus responsible for the Iron Curtain, partly accounts for why the Islamic curtain is descending upon Western locales.

As we take no notice of the depth of our own catastrophic spiritual collapse, we take no notice of the fact that acute misery is so disproportionally concentrated in countries dominated by the only major religion that not only fails to endorse some version of the Golden Rule, but that fervently opposes it.  Pope Francis and the “utopian socialists” at Facebook do no favors to Muslims (much less the rest of us) by carrying water for Islam, or stifling criticism of Islam.

These are matters that are difficult to finesse. But that’s precisely the point: finesse can’t reconcile what is irreconcilable. As William Kilpatrick points out, “Neither Islam nor Christianity are moderate religions.”  Both make demands; both offer a sense of purpose that has evaporated from so many Western lives; both address all mankind.

But when their incompatible imperatives and precepts are taken seriously, they produce radically different results.  Illiteracy in such religious realities is no trifling matter; it’s dangerous.

Following the recent jihad attacks in Sri Lanka, certain politicians and media outlets awkwardly referred to the victims as “Easter worshippers.” Who talks like that?  It was an obviously co-ordinated attempt to downplay the fact that Muslims intentionally targeted Christians – and to suppress any hint that Islam explicitly encourages such evil acts.

Speaking of misleading language: have you noticed how the same media never seem to forget to stress “holy” part, when they mention the “Muslim holy month” of Ramadan, the “Muslim holy book,” or a particular “Muslim holy site.”

I’m talking big picture here, not trying to insult decent Muslims (of which there are many) or duped multiculturalists, many of whom good-naturedly want to regard the “other” positively even if they do not recognize the specifically Christian inspiration behind that impulse – which is alien to Islam.

That some Muslims, however many, buck Islam by repudiating beliefs about the innate inferiority of “infidels” and justifiable violence against them, cannot tell us whether, on the whole, Islam is holy; dissenters from vices Islam enshrines as virtues evidently suggest otherwise.

The larger point is urgent – and disregarded: we have trouble identifying (much less defending) what is holy, and what is not.  The whole question is treated as off limits, even unintelligible. The ongoing desecration of European churches, consistent with Islamic precedent, is thus greeted mainly with silence.

All this gives credence to the observation that much of the West is unconsciously displaying a death wish, with which Islam is quite happy to cooperate. Finding God and His wisdom brings happiness and life; whereas those who shun Him“do violence to themselves; all who hate me love death.” (Proverbs 8:36)

It’s striking how aptly this describes both the Left’s Culture of Death and Islam’s – practically verbatim in the case of homicidal jihadists.

I’m open to suggestions as to how to convey these things in a moderate manner. But at the moment, it’s far more important we see them clearly. And – I believe – imitate St. Paul, who spoke boldly.

INTEL REPORT: Energy News from the Middle East

ENERGY NEWS

MBS-Egypt TV talk show host Amru Adeeb, in his show al-hakayya (the story) aired on MBS- Egypt on 15 June, reported that Egypt is becoming an “energy hub for Europe as well as Africa.”

In this context he noted that Egypt has signed a deal to deliver natural gas to Europe, and plans are underway to export electricity directly to Europe.  This project will entail laying underwater cables from Egypt to Cyprus, from Cyprus to Crete, and Crete to Greece from where the energy could be fed to all of Europe.

On the same program, the Egyptian talk show host also reported on friction developing between France, Greece, and Cyprus on one side, and Turkey on the other side, over natural gas wells in Cypriot waters.  France has a deal with Cyprus allowing it to drill for natural as in Cypriot waters (which Greece also supports, as “Big Brother” to Cyprus).  However, as reported previously, Turkey has also started drilling in Cypriot water, and this without permission from the Cypriot government.  France then, recently ordered Turkey to withdraw from Cypriot water.

On 16 June, Erdogan, in a speech to supporters, indicated that the entire Eastern Mediterranean was Turkish territorial waters.  Erdogan then belittled Cyprus as being inconsequential and threatened to use military force to ensure “Turkish rights.”

COMMENT:  Meanwhile, not only is the U.S. completely AWOL on this issue, but it still lusts to sell this #1 state sponsor of terrorism powerful F-35 jets!

Make no mistake about it, Turkey’s annexation of chunks of N.W. Syria and occupation of chunks of N.W. Iraq (all reported earlier), while the U.S. whimpers its approval and the rest of the world looks the other way, has only whetted the appetite of this fascist state to make ever more encroachments on its neighbors’ territories and rights in the same way that Europe’s acquiescence to Hitler’s early belligerence led to WWII.

Turkey’s current ongoing harassments against Greece and its little brother Cyprus needs to be seen in that light, and if the West does not come down hard on Turkey for this, we’ll all be sorry later.

On another matter, on 16 June, Amru Adeeb commented on the UAE’s minister of foreign affairs visiting Egypt to meet with President as-Sisi so as to obtain reassurance on Egypt’s commitment to the defense of the Gulf states.  Adeeb was dismissive of that saying that as-Sisi’s position has always been clear:  “Egypt is totally committed to the defense of its Gulf Allies.  The security of the Gulf states is Egypt’s security.”

COMMENT:  The visit of the UAE FM at this time to obtain Egyptian reassurance should be seen in the context of the rising tensions in the Gulf due to Iran’s increasingly belligerent behavior.

Also, on 16 June, Adeeb commented on a report aired on rival al-jazeera where an Egyptian professor cast dispersion on the four rashideen (the first four Caliphs, called the “rightly guided ones by Muslims).  According to this professor, these four “rashideen” were not the “rightly guided ones” tradition claims, but were in fact spies for the Quraish which the Quraish had embedded into Muhammad’s entourage.

The MBS-Egypt talk show host Adeeb, who is usually rather animated anyway, really went ballistic over this saying it was going to cause fitna (stark disturbances) all throughout the entire Islamic world.  Then he went on the castigate Qatar (which hosts and supports al-jazeera) of not only causing fitna, but of supporting terrorism.

COMMENT:  The so-called “four rightly guided Caliphs” are Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and ‘Ali.  The real problem that Muslims have with these four rashideen is not so much that the four rashideen might have been spies for the Quraish, but that they never existed.

These four Caliphs, according to Islamic mythology, are the ones who engineered the expansion of the early Caliphate after Muhammad’s death, giving the Arab/Islamic empire control over all of the Levant, Egypt, most of North Africa, and most of what was once the Persian empire.

If that were true, one would expect that the contemporary histories of all of those literate countries would have made some mention of this.  After all, we have Egyptian Coptic writings of that era in our museums as well as Syriac-Aramaic histories, Greek-Byzantine histories, Persian histories . . . and yet none of these sources speak a single word of any of these four “rightly-guided ones.”  Oh, they do talk about the Arab and “Saracen” conquests of their lands, but nary a word about these supposedly great historical figures.

That is because they never existed!  The entire “history” of the origin of Islam and its early expansion was back-written decades later, in the very late 7th and early 8th centuries . . . and it is all, or mostly all, fiction.

Therefore, I submit that this interview on al-jazeera by this Egyptian intellectual is exactly the sort of thing needed by the entire Islamic community.   Causing such a ruckus as it did, it might actually lead to increasing numbers of Muslims to begin to question other assumptions “tradition” has foisted upon them.  And, these questionings and discussions are exactly what are needed to begin the process of veering towards a reformation/restructuring of Islam–without which Western Civilization will go the way of the Byzantine and Persian empires.

Also, I think that we need to give Egypt’s President as-Sisi some credit, despite his heavy-handedness against the Muslim Brotherhood and other political opposition, for creating an atmosphere where issues of this sort can be broached by intellectuals and public figures without fear of legal repercussions from the state (though such individuals still have to fear assassination from the Brotherhood’s thugs.

California: Known Gang Member Javier Olivarez Faces Nine Felony Charges in Crash that Killed Single Mom

This is a story from last month that I missed.  Thanks to a reader for sending it.

It is an incredibly sad story about a popular suburban dog walker who was just returning from a local park with her clients, six dogs, when a police chase ensued.

Her killer, Javier Olivarez, widely described as a “career criminal and gang member,” was attempting to elude police and smashed into a car stopped at an intersection killing Jessica Bingamen (41) and instantly killing four of the six dogs she had with her.

One report says it took 20 minutes to remove her body.

She leaves behind a ten-year-old daughter.

I just read through at least six reports and not one mentions Olivarez’s immigration status!

However….

My observant reader points to an article from last year, describing a man with the same name and age (in Michigan) who had been previously deported to Mexico, but was back and once again in trouble with the law. Same man?  See it here.

Now here is more about the, by all accounts, beloved Jessica and what happened to her that fateful day in May.

From ABC News,

California dog walker, 5 dogs killed when man slams into vehicle during police chase

A high-speed police chase ended tragically this week when a stolen van barreled into a dog walker at a California intersection, killing her and five of the six dogs she was caring for.

Jessica Bingaman, 41, of Long Beach, California, was returning from a local park on Tuesday morning when 43-year-old Javier Olivarez allegedly slammed into her small Ford SUV as he fled from police in a stolen van, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

“Bingaman was transported to a local hospital by the Long Beach Fire Department and was later pronounced deceased due to major traumatic injuries sustained during the collision,” the department said in a statement. “Six dogs were being transported in the 2013 Ford as part of a dog daycare service. Four dogs passed away at the scene and two were transported to a local pet hospital.”Bingaman, a mother of one, had just stopped at a stop sign when Olivarez drove through the sign and came speeding towards her, the department said.

A fifth dog passed away at the pet hospital due to injuries sustained in the crash and the remaining dog has been released to its owners from the hospital, according to the department.

Denise Thomson, who said she lived next door to Bingaman, said she was a popular dog walker who was dedicated to her 10-year-old daughter and her canine clients.
“I’ll miss her,” Thomson told ABC California station KABC. “She loved her daughter with all her heart, and she loved the dogs that she took care of.”

“She loved the outdoors, she loved exercise, she loved yoga. Just happy-go-lucky,” added Denise Lee, a friend of Bingaman.

Police officers spotted Olivarez, who officials said is a career criminal and known gang member, in a stolen 2016 Nissan van a few blocks away from the crash site. The officers tried to conduct a traffic stop, but Olivarez took off, sparking a high-speed chase through a largely residential neighborhood, police said.

The pursuit ended with Olivarez slamming into Bingaman’s Ford Escape — crushing it — and careening into three parked cars, police said. He was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

The coming crime wave (here already!) from the mass migration into America.

Last month Daniel Horowitz penned a post at Conservative Review in which he warns of a coming crime wave like nothing we have seen as hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants flood into the US.

Read it here.

But, here is my question—if the media fails to report the immigration status of a “known gang member” like this creep Olivarez, how will the average casual follower of the news know from where the crime is coming?  (And, thus how to stop it?)

But, I guess that is exactly what the media power structure doesn’t want us to know!

That is why it is vitally important that you get stories like this one out to your social media networks to help counter the fluffy-puffy sob stories the media spreads about the poor migrant souls being supposedly mistreated by our President.

Stopping China’s March To World Dominance

The Hong Kong demonstrations reveal that President Trump was right in many ways to identify China early on as a threat to the United States. He saw them as an economic threat and dishonest trading partner. To a lesser degree, he saw them as a military threat.

He was right, although ultimately, their military — including space and cyber warfare — are probably the largest threat.

To be clear, China is a bigger, long-term threat economically and militarily than anyone else, including Russia which has aging nukes but otherwise is a virtual third-world economy and a vastly weakened military. Modern militaries cannot be created and maintained in modern warfare without strong economies underwriting them.

Russia does not have such an economy. China increasingly does. And anyone who thinks China does not have as much — or more — of a goal of world domination, knows nothing of Chinese history and the current goals and philosophies that align with that history.

They continue to think of themselves as the Middle Kingdom — that is, the center of the world — and are intent on reconstituting the world so that is the case in a very real sense. Despite being an atheist Communist regime that oppress religions from Christianity to Islam to Buddhism to hundreds of sects, the Chinese still see the Middle Kingdom as a sort of spiritual destiny.

From the ambitious Belt and Road initiative, with China at the center, to exporting opioids to the U.S. through Mexico, to stealing U.S. technology and intellectual property, to building ports with 100-year leases around the world, to embedding spyware into Huawei products and its global 5G network, to dramatically improving its military capabilities in the air, sea, land and space, China confronts and affronts the U.S. everywhere.

Even presidential candidate Joe Biden has finally seen the danger of China and flipped.  (Although he flips a lot.) According to the New York Post:

Former Vice President Joe Biden toughened up his language on China Tuesday, saying the Asian nation represented a “serious challenge” and sometimes a “real threat” to the United States — just a month after saying “they’re not competition for us.”

“We are in a competition with China. We need to get tough with China. They are a serious challenge to us, and in some areas a real threat,” Biden told an Iowa audience while out campaigning for president.

It’s not readily understood, but China like Russia enjoyed a pushover of a president in Barack Obama, but are getting significant push back in the form of President Trump.

What’s well publicized is the trade war Trump has responded to. It’s so important to remember, and the media either is ignorant or just being willful partisans as usual, but Trump did not start the trade war. China has been cheating and stealing for decades, and getting more bold in recent years. They’ve been at war with us on trade for a long time. Trump has merely returned fire. Finally. But it won’t be easy.

The tariffs and trade war show how stubborn and tough the Chinese leadership can be. They take the long view toward the Middle Kingdom. And they don’t have to answer to their people at the ballot box as American presidents must. It’s one of the dynamics that makes it more difficult for American leadership, yet Trump is doing it anyway. It’s almost like he’s not your typical politician who makes decisions based on his re-election needs.

This goes to his genuineness. He’s authentically who he is. You get what you see. You shouldn’t need to agree with him on all issues to find that refreshing.

In addition to his responding to China’s trade aggressions, Trump has responded militarily with naval movements and, maybe most importantly, with treating Taiwan like the democratic ally they are — instead of quivering before the Chinese Communists like previous presidents and distancing ourselves from our Chinese ally.

As the South China Morning Post points out:

“Washington has been approving arms deals with Taipei at a much faster pace than under Barack Obama and George W Bush, while the self-ruled island has been making public US military movements near the Taiwan Strait – information that would not have been released under previous US administrations.”

In trying to close the southern U.S. border to stop the waves of illegal immigrants, the Trump administration would also be cutting deeply into the supply trough of illegal opioids that are developed in China, shipped to Mexico and smuggled into the U.S. There are many drivers of the awful opioid crisis, but ready availability is certainly one of them.

And Trump has begun the long journey of rebuilding the U.S. military, including the Navy that is critically important to projecting U.S. power in important regions such as the Middle East, but in the future, perhaps even the near future, the Asian Pacific where U.S. allies such as Japan, South Korea and the Philippines are all potential victims of Chinese military aggression one day.

There are many pieces to what China is doing. And they have vulnerabilities in all of them. What’s required is American leadership with the vision and chutzpah to push back on those vulnerabilities. Trump is doing so on trade and in Taiwan military sales and closeness.

President Trump may not understand all of the associated history ancient and recent of China, but he rightly identified the primary threat to American leadership in the world. And that is a dictatorial China. And that is not a better world.
