Debate “Slugfest” #1 Is In the Record Book!

Last night in Cleveland, three warriors took to the stage to battle it out. “Three warriors?” Yes: President Trump, Joe Biden, and Chris Wallace.

Chris Wallace of FOX news served as the moderator of the debate, but he found himself going to war himself to try to keep the peace between the pair. When that failed, Wallace just continually waded into the fray to try to keep things on an even keel.

He failed!

“Black Lives Matter:” What’s It All About?

Yesterday we introduced the realities of ANTIFA and all it stands for. We did that by giving you the group’s extensive past that goes back almost 100 years. Today, as promised, we go into details about Black Lives Matter — NOT the movement, but the formal political organization.

We previously wrote about BLM here and published a story giving the fundamental structure of the group and details obtained from their website. That being said, we all should know that any group involved in such controversial things as is Black Lives Matter probably doesn’t volunteer “objective” information about itself. So we did it for them.

BLM: “Facts Matter”

Black Lives Matter” is more popular than either President Trump or Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, according to recent polling. The online research firm Civiqs found in June that voters approved of the movement by a 28-point margin. Rasmussen found 62% of likely voters viewed it favorably and 32% very favorably.

This demonstrates a national consensus that the lives of black fellow citizens matter, which has not always been the case in our history. It also suggests strong support for better, fairer policing in minority communities. But that seems far more likely to be because large majorities believe in the principle of the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal rather than because they support the agenda of the organization with the innocuous-sounding name, Black Lives Matter.

The fact is, “black lives matter” is a matter of common decency entirely separate from the activist, ideological, left-wing agenda of the BLM group. That organization has stated aims that go far beyond addressing police brutality. Its goals include, without apology, the upending of American society. Yet it has gained more attention, support, and money since the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in Minneapolis police custody. It is therefore vital that the public, much of which thinks that by supporting BLM, they are backing decent and humane reforms, knows enough to make the distinction between the idea and the ideologues hijacking it.

The co-founders of Black Lives Matter are avowed Marxists. At least one names a convicted cop killer among her heroes. A key mentor in building and shaping the group is a two-time vice-presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA. The national organization is financially supported through a leftist group whose board of directors includes a convicted terrorist. A 2017 report from Black Lives Matter describes its founders, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, and Opal Tometi, as “three radical Black organizers.” The women espouse Marxism and openly push radical identity politics.

Susan Rosenberg was listed as vice-chair of the board of directors for Thousand Currents, BLM’s financial sponsor until the website was pulled down in late June. She had been a member of a radical leftist revolutionary militant group known as the May 19th Communist Organization, which was affiliated with the Weather Underground terrorist group and the radical Black Liberation Army. She was convicted on weapons and explosives charges and sentenced to 58 years in prison, serving 16 years behind bars before being pardoned by President Bill Clinton at the end of his second term in January 2001.

Rosenberg was a radical in the 1960s and 1970s who landed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list for a number of crimes. She was caught in 1984 while unloading hundreds of pounds of dynamite and weapons, including a submachine gun, from her car at a New Jersey storage facility. She was believed to have been part of politically motivated bombing plots. Rosenberg and her associates were also charged with bombings during the 1980s that detonated at the Capitol and the Navy War College, among other targets. They were tied to a 1981 Brink’s armored car robbery in which a guard and two police officers were killed. She wrote an autobiography in 2011 titled An American Radical: Political Prisoner in My Own Country about her own radical escapades.

Garza has repeatedly talked about how convicted cop killer and wanted domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, is one of her main inspirations. Rosenberg was suspected of helping Shakur escape from prison after murdering a police officer.

Garza wrote an article for Feminist Wire in 2014 claiming that “hetero-patriarchy and anti-Black racism within our movement is real and felt” and explaining that “when I use Assata’s powerful demand in my organizing work, I always begin by sharing where it comes from, sharing about Assata’s significance to the Black Liberation Movement, what its political purpose and message is, and why it’s important in our context.” Garza has repeatedly tweeted approvingly about Shakur.

Shakur is on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list with a $1,000,000 reward for information directly leading to her apprehension. She is believed to be hiding in Cuba. Shakur, a member of the revolutionary extremist group the Black Liberation Army, is wanted for escaping from prison in New Jersey in 1979 while serving a life sentence for murdering a police officer. In 1973, Shakur and two accomplices were stopped for a motor vehicle violation on the New Jersey Turnpike by two state troopers. She was wanted at the time for her role in a number of serious crimes, including bank robbery. When pulled over, Shakur and her comrades opened fire on the officers, wounding one trooper and killing Werner Foerster execution-style at point-blank range.

The BLM website is operated under an umbrella group known as the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, chaired by Cullors, who said she and Garza are “trained organizers” and “trained Marxists” during a 2015 interview with the Real News Network, noting: “We actually do have an ideological frame.  We are super versed on, sort of, ideological theories, and I think what we try to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folks.”

Black Lives Matter states that it was founded in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman being acquitted of the killing of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman argued he’d acted in self-defense. President Barack Obama’s Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder found “insufficient evidence” to pursue any federal civil rights charges.

Cullors’s memoir, When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir, includes a foreword written by Angela Davis and an opening epigraph from Shakur. In the book, Cullors writes that “we do this work today because on another day work was done by Assata Shakur, Angela Davis, [transgender activist] Miss Major, the Black Panther Party,” and others. In describing her move toward activism, Cullors wrote, “I read, I study, adding Mao, Marx, and Lenin to my knowledge of hooks.”

Mao Zedong, the founder of the People’s Republic of China, was responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of his own people, including 45 million or more during the Great Leap Forward, and millions more during the Cultural Revolution. Vladimir Lenin, the first leader of the Soviet Union, presided over the Red Terror, which killed many tens of thousands as he launched one of the most repressive regimes in history.

Cullors told Teen Vogue in 2019 that “Angela Davis is a mentor of mine.” The duo has coordinated on BLM’s strategies, and they appeared together at a “TimesTalks” event put on by the New York Times in 2018. During that discussion, Cullors called the poverty she grew up in a “setup” imposed upon her by a capitalist society and remarked: “If this is a setup, then I can set it up differently.” Davis, seen as a hero and mentor to the BLM co-founders, is another Marxist and was the Communist Party vice president nominee in 1980 and 1984. She was a leading apologist for the Soviet Union during the Cold War, even praising the East German and Soviet tyrannies while in East Berlin. Davis was the winner of the Soviet Union’s Lenin Peace Prize and repeatedly praised the USSR’s October 1917 Revolution.

In the United States, Davis was affiliated with the Black Panther Party and connected to violent, murderous radicals. Firearms registered to her were used in the takeover of a California courtroom in 1970, where four people were killed. Davis detests Israel and has been dogged by accusations of anti-Semitism for decades. She has been a fervent supporter of the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement waging economic warfare against the state of Israel in recent years. Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz wrote in his 1991 book Chutzpah that he’d asked Davis if she’d be willing to speak up on behalf of Jewish prisoners of conscience in the Soviet Union when she went to Moscow to receive a prize and claims she told him that “they are all Zionist fascists and opponents of socialism” and would urge that they be kept in prison. But she has pushed for “political prisoner” Marwan Barghouti to be released from an Israeli prison. Barghouti, one of the leaders of the First and Second Intifada and a founder of the al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, was convicted on 21 counts of murder for attacks carried out by Palestinian terrorists.

Davis recently endorsed Biden on Moscow’s state-owned Russia Today.

Garza and Davis appeared on Democracy Now! in 2017, with Garza effusive in her praise of Davis and repeatedly thanking her for helping guide the BLM leaders.

“I have to say, Angela, one of the things I appreciate so much about you is that you’re not waxing poetic about things that happened; you’re still very much in relationship to all of us and still teaching us,” Garza said. “Thank you for being a constant presence for us. You are always 100% available and paying attention, and it means a lot to all of us. You are one of my greatest teachers.”

Garza explained how thoroughly she’d been shaped by Davis’s radical ideology: “I have a bookshelf full of your writings. And there’s something extraordinary and powerful about what you have offered to all of us — this unapologetic way of making sure that we understand how intricately connected race and class and gender is, and then pushing that up against the state and the state apparatus and having us understand how we need to fight that with the relationship between race and class and gender in shaping our strategies and our movements is unmatched, so I want to thank you for that. Thank you for shaping not just our ideas, but the fights that we have on the ground.”

Garza spoke at a leftist Net Impact Conference in 2016, where she made it clear that BLM was a wider agenda than police brutality, also pointing to the wage gap, climate change, the Dakota Access Pipeline protests at the Standing Rock Reservation, and much more, arguing that at the root of these alleged problems was the capitalist system.

The closely affiliated Movement for Black Lives claimed in 2016 that Israel was an “apartheid state” committing “genocide” against the Palestinian people. Cullors has repeatedly talked about the importance of “solidarity” with Palestine, leading a “delegation” to Palestine. Cullors was one of the signatories of 2015’s Black Solidarity Statement with Palestine, a thoroughly anti-Israel screed that stated in part: “Out of the terror directed against us — from numerous attacks on Black life to Israel’s brutal war on Gaza and chokehold on the West Bank — strengthened resilience and joint struggle have emerged between our movements.” The statement also said that the signatories “reject Israel’s framing of itself as a victim” and, hand-waving away the countless terrorist attacks and thousands of rocket bombardments against Israel, falsely claimed that “anyone who takes an honest look at the destruction to life and property in Gaza can see Israel committed a one-sided slaughter.”

In the wake of Floyd’s death and the subsequent protests, Black Lives Matter quickly set up a petition on its website to #DefundThePolice.

“We call for an end to the systemic racism that allows this culture of corruption to go unchecked and our lives to be taken,” Black Lives Matter said. “We call for a national defunding of police. We demand investment in our communities and the resources to ensure Black people not only survive but thrive.”

The Black Lives Matter website explains this proposal with a July post declaring: “We know that police don’t keep us safe — and as long as we continue to pump money into our corrupt criminal justice system at the expense of housing, health, and education investments — we will never be truly safe. That’s why we are calling to #DefundPolice and #InvestInCommunities.”

The group argued that “George Floyd’s violent death was a breaking point — an all too familiar reminder that, for Black people, law enforcement doesn’t protect or save our lives. They often threaten and take them.”

BLM is clear about its opposition to President Trump and Republicans. A letter from BLM’s organizing director Nikita Mitchell has lamented that “we face blatant anti-Blackness, capitalist values, and imperial projects,” and she decried “a rise of conservatism that has resulted in a fascist president.”

BLM says that it is looking to influence November’s election, arguing that “Black voters tipped the balance in the 2018 midterm elections” and that “moving towards 2020, we seek to increase the power of our voices and votes.” The group recently launched a “#WhatMatters2020” campaign “aimed to maximize the impact of the BLM movement by galvanizing BLM supporters and allies to the polls in the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election.” The campaign says that it is focused on “racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration, economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights, environmental conditions, voting rights and suppression, healthcare, government corruption, education, and commonsense gun laws.”

Beyond their Black Lives Matter work, Cullors calls herself the “self-described wife of Harriet Tubman” and works on radical Los Angeles jail reform. At the same time, Tometi also spent years as executive director of the leftist Black Alliance for Just Immigration. Garza, Cullors, and Tometi were named three of Time Magazine’s 100 Women of the Year for 2013.

Black Lives Matter raises money through the ActBlue donation platform, though claims that this makes it a “shell company” for the Democratic Party are unfounded. Black Lives Matter appears to make up the majority of the donation work that Thousand Currents does, with the 2019 public audit statement for the latter group showing just over $6.4 million in total financial assets, including holding more than $3.3 million in assets for Black Lives Matter as of the end of last June. The audit shows Thousand Currents released nearly $1.8 million in donations to Black Lives Matter during the year ending on June 30, 2019.

The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation has pulled in massive amounts of cash since Floyd’s death, telling the Associated Press that it had received more than 1.1 million individual donations as of mid-June, with each donor giving an average of $33 per donation — meaning the group brought in more than $33 million in less than a month. Donations have continued to roll in since then.

BLM announced funds totaling $12.5 million in recent weeks. It first unveiled a $6.5 million fund to support its grassroots organizing work on June 11, stating in a press release that it was “grateful for the generosity and support of donors” and that the fund would be available to all chapters affiliated with the BLM Global Network Foundation. Beginning July 1, “affiliated chapters may apply for unrestricted grant funding of up to $500,000 in multi-year grants,” the group said, later adding that another $6 million will go to helping black-led grassroots organizers.

“In the upcoming year, we will provide resources to those new to the movement and interested in Black Liberation strategies by developing curriculum,” Cullors said when announcing the new fund. “In this stunning moment in American history, we will honor those lost and those who have come before us in the fight for Black Liberation.”

Radicals attempting to co-opt otherwise constructive social movements are nothing new. The far-Left participated in, and in some cases infiltrated, civil rights groups without discrediting the just and necessary fight against Jim Crow. But the arguments that won the day against segregation were rooted in the best American traditions, not in overthrowing those traditions. Distinguishing Black Lives Matter the group from the growing sentiment in favor of racial justice driving the phrase’s popularity is a necessary first step in repeating that history.

The Truth About Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM)

Do not be tempted for one moment to believe the lies that have been floated by leftist leaders for several years now that Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa are little more than social/political organizations founded to promote the good things that have been integral parts of the United States since its founding. Neither group represents the fundamentals of “Equal Justice Under the Law,” a guarantee to the “pursuit of happiness,” or even “Freedom and Justice for All.” Though they cloak their mantra wrapped in utopian “wrapping paper,” NOTHING about either is as pictured by their leaders.

So what are the truths about each organization? Who can we believe? Both tell the World they are for the guarantees of freedom for all, tearing down the instruments of tyranny that supposedly exist in the American government, its leaders, and the way the nation treats its citizens; that human rights are controlled by a small group of racist fascists in Washington D.C. who must be removed from power no matter what the costs.

Their mantra is not true and their stated structure and ideals, plans, and intentions are anything BUT what they tell American citizens.

Today (Monday) and tomorrow (Tuesday) we will here give you a skeleton of the history and purpose of each group. The information we share with you will be historical, factual, and verifiable. We encourage you to digest what you see here at TruthNewsNetwork and then verify facts for yourselves. Let’s get started with “Antifa,” simply for alphabetical reasons!

Antifa Unmasked

The extremist anarchist-communist group Antifa has been in the headlines because of past violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, then Portland, Oregon, and most recently, in numerous other cities across America. Yet while the organization has been applauded by some left-leaning news outlets for including white nationalists and neo-Nazis in its list of targets, the organization wasn’t always about targeting “fascism,” as it claims.

The organization was initially part of the Soviet Union’s front operations to bring about communist dictatorship in Germany, and it worked to label all rival parties as “fascist.”

The organization can be traced to the “united front” of the Soviet Union’s Communist International (Comintern) during the Third World Congress in Moscow in June and July 1921, according to the German booklet “80 Years of Anti-Fascist Action” by Bernd Langer, published by the Association for the Promotion of Anti-Fascist Culture. Langer is a former member of the Autonome Antifa, formerly one of Germany’s largest Antifa organizations, which disbanded in 2004.

The Soviet Union was among the world’s most violent dictatorships, killing an estimated 20 million people, according to “The Black Book of Communism,” published by Harvard University Press. The Soviet regime is second only to the Chinese Communist Party under Mao Zedong, which killed an estimated 65 million people.

The idea of the united front strategy was to bring together left-wing organizations in order to incite the communist revolution. The Soviets believed that following Russia’s revolution in 1917, communism would next spread to Germany since Germany had the second-largest communist party, the KPD (Communist Party of Germany).

It was at the Fourth World Congress of the Comintern in 1922 that the plan took shape. Moscow formed the slogan “To the Masses” for its united front strategy and sought to join together the various communist and workers’ parties of Germany under a single ideological banner that it controlled. “The ‘unified front’ thus did not mean equal cooperation between different organizations, but the dominance of the workers’ movement by the communists,” Langer writes.

Benito Mussolini, a Marxist and socialist who had been expelled from Italy’s Socialist Party in 1914 for his support for World War I, later founded the fascist movement as his own political party. He took power through his “March on Rome” in October 1922.

In Germany, Adolf Hitler became head of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nazi Party) in 1921 and mounted a coup attempt in 1923.

The KPD decided to use the banner of anti-fascism to form a movement. Langer notes, though, that to the KPD, the ideas of “fascism” and “anti-fascism” were “undifferentiated,” and the term “fascism” served merely as rhetoric meant to support their aggressive opposition. Both the communist and fascist systems were based in collectivism and state-planned economies. Both also proposed systems wherein the individual was heavily controlled by a powerful state, and both were responsible for large-scale atrocities and genocide.

The 2016 annual report by Germany’s domestic intelligence service, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), notes the same point: From the viewpoint of the “left-wing extremist,” the label of “fascism” as pushed by Antifa often does not refer to actual fascism, but is merely a label assigned to “capitalism.”

While leftist extremists claim to be fighting “fascism” while launching their attacks on other groups, the report states the term “fascism” has a double meaning under the extreme-left ideology, indicating the “fight against the capitalist system.” This held true from the beginning, according to Langer. For the communists in Germany, “anti-fascism” merely meant “anti-capitalism.” He notes the labels merely served as “battle concepts” under a “political vocabulary.” A description of Antifa on the BfV website notes that the organization still holds this same basic definition of capitalism as being “fascism.” “They argue that the capitalist state produces fascism, or at least tolerates it. Therefore, anti-fascism is directed not only against actual or supposed right-wing extremists but also always against the state and its representatives, in particular members of the security authorities,” it states.

Langer notes that historically, by labeling the anti-capitalist interests of the communist movement as “anti-fascism,” the KPD was able to use this rhetoric to label all other political parties as fascist. Langer states, “According to this, the other parties opposed to the KPD were fascist, especially the SPD [Social Democratic Party of Germany].” Thus, in what would today be considered ironic, the group that the communist “anti-fascists” most heavily targeted under their new label of “fascism” was the social democrats.

On Aug. 23, 1923, the Politburo of the Communist Party of Russia held a secret meeting, and according to Langer, “all the important officials spoke out for an armed insurrection in Germany.” The KPD was at the front of this call, launching a movement under the banner of United Front Action and branding its armed “anti-fascist” wing under the name Antifaschistische Aktion (“Antifascist Action”), which Antifa still carries in Germany, and from which the Antifa organizations in other countries are rooted.

The Unity Congress of Antifa, held at the Philharmonic Opera House in Berlin, on July 10, 1932. The congress was organized by the Communist Party of Germany as a rallying point to defeat the Social Democratic Party and the Nazi Party. Antifa labeled both parties as "fascist," which was a political label they used for all rival parties. (Public Domain)
The Unity Congress of Antifa, held at the Philharmonic Opera House in Berlin, on July 10, 1932. The congress was organized by the Communist Party of Germany as a rallying point to defeat the Social Democratic Party and the Nazi Party. Antifa labeled both parties as “fascist,” which was a political label they used for all rival parties.

At this time, Hitler and his Nazi Party had begun to emerge on the world stage, and the Nazi Party employed a similar group to Antifaschistische Aktion for political violence and intimidation, called the “brownshirts.”

Antifaschistische Aktion, meanwhile, began to attract some members who opposed the arrival of actual fascism in Germany and who did not subscribe to — or were potentially unaware of — the organization’s ties to the Soviet Union. However, the violence instigated by Antifaschistische Aktion largely had an opposite effect. The ongoing tactics of violence and intimidation of all rival systems under the Antifa movement, along with its violent ideology, drove many people toward fascism.

“The Communists’ violent revolutionary rhetoric, promising the destruction of capitalism and the creation of a Soviet Germany, terrified the country’s middle class, who knew only too well what had happened to their counterparts in Russia after 1918,” writes Richard J. Evans in “The Third Reich in Power.”

Anti-fascism is directed not only against actual or supposed right-wing extremists but also always against the state and its representatives, in particular members of the security authorities.
 
“Appalled at the failure of the government to solve the crisis, and frightened into desperation by the rise of the Communists,” he states, “they began to leave the squabbling little factions of the conventional political right and gravitate towards the Nazis instead.”

Langer notes that from the beginning, the KPD was a member of the Comintern, and “within a few years, it became a Stalinist party,” both ideologically and logistically. He states that it even became “financially dependent on the Moscow headquarters.”

Leaders of the KPD, with Antifa as their on-the-ground movement for violence and intimidation of rival political parties, fell under the command of the Soviet apparatus. Many KPD leaders would later become leaders in the communist German Democratic Republic, including its infamous Ministry for State Security, the Stasi.

As Langer states, “anti-fascism is a strategy rather than an ideology.” “It was brought into play in Germany in the 1920s by the KPD,” not as a legitimate movement against the fascism that would later arise in Germany, but instead “as an anti-capitalist concept of struggle,” he writes.

Summary

I know: this report is filled with names and name-abbreviations and includes much information. We Americans have lost any real sense of the necessity of the knowledge of our pasts. In almost every other country, the importance of history which shaped the present in every aspect of those nations is viewed by leaders as critical. Not so much in the U.S. In fact, World History is scarce in high school and college campuses. Civics which was once a staple of understanding of how our government works was removed from the History curriculum in our public schools. But, as you can see, knowing the historical foundations and basis for the existence of the various political and social groups who are today shaping the landscape of what our Nation is to become in their eyes is not just important, it is critical.

How do we do that without diving in to learn the facts of our origins, our past, and the past attempts to instigate totalitarian ideals here that other countries faced and defeated generations ago?

Antifa from its roots to its blooming today in America is evil. And if allowed to continue its unabated growth will undoubtedly usher in an oppressive government led by despots with their hunger for totalitarian control.

Before you dismiss the previous sentence, consider this: Italians, Germans, Polish People, Czech citizens, and other Europeans dismissed what they heard that was identical to this same warning, saying: “That can never happen here!”

Communism is estimated to have killed at least 100 million people, yet its crimes have not been fully compiled and its ideology still persists. The Epoch Times seeks to expose the history and beliefs of this movement, which has been a source of tyranny and destruction since it emerged. Read the whole series at ept.ms/TheDeadEndCom

Biden-Biden Foreign Corruption Part II

“Biden-Biden?” Joe and Hunter, of course.

If you missed yesterday’s story, you might want to pause here and go back and read it. There is plenty of corruption for us to cover, and you don’t want to miss any of it. After all, Americans must choose between Joe Biden and President Trump on November 3rd about who will be at the helm of the country for the next four years.

It’s much easier to make the right choice when armed with everything necessary to compare the two. Indeed, we know much about President Trump, so much we surely have the list of library books he returned late and the fines he paid. Regarding former Vice President Biden, we are now discovering many “questionable” activities in which he was deeply involved. And after these two days of revelations, you certainly will understand the reason for his nickname: “Quid Pro Joe.”

In Part I of this, we covered Hunter and Joe Biden’s corrupt activities throughout Europe. While we mentioned Hunter’s multiple trips to China, we only disclosed his one big financial deal with the Chinese Communist Party and the nation of China itself. Today, we dig a bit deeper.

Chinese “Connections”

Hunter Biden made millions of dollars’ worth of “questionable transactions” with Chinese nationals connected to the Chinese regime and military, according to a new congressional report. He began developing associations with Chinese nationals starting in at least 2009, the year he co-founded the U.S. investment and advisory firm Rosemont Seneca Partners. According to the report, these financial connections “accelerated while his father was vice president and continued after he left office.” Joe Biden was vice president from 2009 to 2017.

The other founders of Rosemont Seneca Partners were Chris Heinz, the stepson of former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, and Devon Archer, one of Hunter Biden’s business partners.

The report, released on September 23, was authored by two Senate committees: Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and the Department of Finance.

In response, Joe Biden’s campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said the Senate report was using taxpayer dollars to launch “an attack founded on a long-disproven, hardcore rightwing conspiracy theory.”

Beijing-Friendly Businessmen

Two Chinese nationals became prominent in Hunter Biden’s financial network with China: disgraced Chinese oil tycoon Ye Jianming and Asia-based financier Dong Gongwen. According to the report, Dong was Ye’s business associate and executed transactions for Ye’s companies. Hunter Biden made millions from his relationship with Ye and received millions from Dong’s companies, the report found.

“Ye and his associates had robust relationships with China’s military units, some of which were involved in matters in direct opposition to U.S. policy in the region,” the Senate report stated.

Ye founded CEFC China Energy, an oil conglomerate that made billions of dollars in Russia, eastern Europe, and Africa. It became China’s largest privately-held oil company before being caught in Beijing’s crosshairs in 2018. Ye was placed under investigation in February 2018 for “suspected economic crimes” and subsequently detained. His current whereabouts remain unknown. A state-owned enterprise took control of CEFC in March 2018.

In addition to shady business practices, the oil company hired former military cadres and leveraged such connections to advance itself, according to Chinese media exposés. Ye also served as deputy secretary-general of the China Association for International Friendly Contact (CAIFC) from 2003 to 2005. The association is a front group for the Chinese military’s former General Political Department (GPD), a political organ within the Central Military Commission — the Chinese Communist Party agency that controls the military, according to a 2018 report published by the U.S. — China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC). The GPD was replaced by a new agency called the Political Work Department in 2016.

According to USCC, CAIFC is responsible for collecting intelligence and conducting propaganda and perception management campaigns.

Transactions with Biden

The new Senate report identified a transaction of “potential criminal financial activity” in August 2017, when CEFC Infrastructure Investment (US) LLC, a subsidiary of CEFC China Energy, sent a payment of $100,000 to Hunter Biden’s Washington-based law firm Owasco. It is unclear what the money was for. Another incident the Senate identified as “potential financial criminal activity” took place in September 2017, when Hunter Biden and Dong opened a line of credit at a bank under a business named Hudson West III LLC. The credit was made available to Hunter Biden, James Biden, and James Biden’s wife, Sara Biden. James Biden is Joe Biden’s brother.

The Bidens subsequently used the credit cards they opened to purchase $101,291.46 worth of extravagant items, including airline tickets and multiple items at Apple Inc. stores, pharmacies, hotels, and restaurants,” the Senate report stated.

Millions went from CEFC Infrastructure Investment to Hudson West III and then to Owasco. On August 8, 2017, CEFC Infrastructure Investment wired $5 million to Hudson West III’s bank account. From Aug. 8, 2017, to Sept. 25, 2018, Hudson West III sent more than $4.79 million in the name of consulting fees to Owasco. Hudson West III was 1 of 8 numbered Hudson West business entities, and the Senate report found that Dong was connected to seven of them. The report didn’t elaborate on the connections, and it’s unclear whether Hunter Biden is joined to the other Hudson West firms.

Patrick Ho, a Hong Kong-based businessman who served as secretary-general of a CEFC subsidiary, China Energy Fund Committee, was also Hunter Biden’s client at Owasco, according to the Senate report. Ho is also implicated in CEFC’s misdeeds. He was charged by U.S. prosecutors of bribing top officials in Chad and Uganda in exchange for business opportunities for CEFC.

On March 22, 2018, months before Ho was to go on trial, a $1 million payment was sent from Hudson West III to Owasco for Ho’s legal representation, the Senate report found.

Ho was sentenced to three years in prison in March 2019 on several charges, including money laundering and violating the Foreign Corrupt Practice Act, according to a Department of Justice press release. He was freed in June this year, with the judge shortening his incarceration time after demonstrating good behavior.

The Senate committees said the financial ties between Hunter Biden, his family, and the Chinese nationals “don’t just raise conflicts of interest concerns; they raise criminal financial, counterintelligence, and extortion concerns.”

The Joe Biden campaign didn’t immediately return a request for comment on the transactions with Chinese individuals.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) on September 24 sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray asking if the agency will investigate specific findings of the report, including Hunter Biden’s Chinese transactions involving potential criminal activity.

Let’s Go Back to the U.S. “Gravy Train”

A German company owned by the Russian billionaire who wired Hunter Biden $3.5 million received a contract to build part of the World War II Museum in New Orleans, according to a fact sheet on the museum’s website. Elena Baturina, the widow of former Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov, bought German structural membrane manufacturer Hightex in early 2015, according to Russian-language news reports. In April 2017, she announced that Hightex would build part of the Canopy of Peace for the World War II Museum, according to several Russian-language media outlets.

Three years earlier, on Feb. 14, 2014, Baturina sent $3.5 million to Rosemont Seneca Thornton LLC, a company co-founded by Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, according to a report released by Senate Republicans on September 23. The wire was accompanied by a note stating, “Consultancy Agreement DD12.02.2014.”

The Canopy of Peace project at the WWII museum has been plagued by delays primarily due to issues stemming from a different contractor, according to The New Orleans Advocate. As of this August, half of the material from Hightex was yet to be shipped to the project, which was at that point eight months behind schedule. The museum did not respond to a request for comment.

Joe Biden hosted a fundraiser at the museum during the early stages of his presidential campaign in August 2019.

While there is no evidence of a link between Baturina’s wire and the contract awarded to the museum, questions about both transactions may emerge because the Senate Republicans discovered Baturina’s payments after they were flagged due to her “reported criminal activity.” Baturina did not respond to a request for comment sent to the email of a think tank she founded.

A year after sending $3.5 million to Biden’s company, between May 6 and December 8, 2015, Baturina wired more than $241,000 to the same company. The money was then forwarded to BAK USA LLC, a Buffalo-based tablet manufacturer that would eventually go bankrupt, claiming it is $39 million in debt.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo had praised BAK USA when it received a contract from Microsoft in early 2016. Before BAK USA went bankrupt, New York State handed the firm a tax abatement allowing it to operate tax-free for ten years. The firm has since re-incorporated and appears to be in the same line of business.

Three months after the last wire to BAK USA via Hunter Biden’s firm, Baturina announced that she had purchased $10 million in real estate near the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, according to a press release. She intended to convert the zoning of the assets to accommodate residential units, a process that requires a lengthy approval process.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) led the effort behind the report released on September 23. The Baturina transactions are a small part of a more extensive report that also documented links between Hunter Biden and foreign nationals from Ukraine and China.

Summary

Do you notice a “chain of events” in these revelations? Do you see the similarities? The power of political status in the American government opens all kinds of doors domestically and internationally. Americans have always known that to be true, but seldom see the specifics of the types of corrupt acts some government employees and politicians use to their personal advantages.

Have you ever wondered how people in D.C. government — especially members of Congress — can move to Washington when elected to jobs that pay approximately $170,000 a year — only to years later leave Washington worth sometimes tens of millions of dollars? Where do those riches come from? How are those dollars made? And who orchestrates the process or processes that instigate these financial boondoggles over and over again, year after year for most of those who serve in our government? You can bet on this one safe bet: there is someone or some group in D.C. that has perfected this process and offer it to all those elected to Congress immediately upon their arrival.

Do you believe such a scenario is true, or do you simply relegate that thought to your bucket that contains only conspiracy theories? For me personally, there are far too many people who seem to have immediate access to the resources necessary to purchase property in such an expensive area while also owning homes in their districts. The five counties with the highest median income in all of America are all near Washington, D.C.

Counting today (September 27, 2020), there are 38 days until Americans choose who the President will be. I am uncertain where you are in reconciling the information contained in today’s and yesterday’s stories at TruthNewsNetwork about Biden corruption. I cannot even consider casting a vote for Joe Biden without his full disclosure of his personal and political involvement in any of these transactions.

I cannot accept any of this as “just the way we do politics in the United States.” That does NOT describe the nation to which I am bound. I want the truth: no I DEMAND the truth from all those who seek the highest offices in our government. And that begins with those in the U.S. Congress and the White House.

I am not so callous as to think anyone who serves in government must be perfect. I am not so “perfect” as to think I have any right to judge someone for their character flaws or personality traits with which I disagree. I am just one American who expects those who agree to serve us all, to be honest, hard-working, diligent in finding and repairing mistakes in our government that only our government can. But that does NOT include finding ways to enrich themselves or others from within their circles using the benefits of every kind belonging to the American people.

Former Vice President and current Democrat Party Nominee for President Joe Biden MUST satisfactorally explain all of the above and also the contents revealed in our story from Saturday to give Americans truths to enable any to vote for him. Short of that, Joe Biden should resign his nomination to run for President.

Deep, Deep Corruption in the Biden Family: It’s Real

Today our “Saturday Bullet Points” have been relegated to the bench. Why? We have dived into the corruption that has long been expected but now exposed about the Joe Biden family in Europe and elsewhere. Joe Biden has maintained for years he knew nothing about his son Hunter’s businesses. Documents and other evidence de-classified tell a different story. This will be a trilogy: three parts of giving you facts about the actions of members of the Biden family. And for the former Vice President who is now running for President, his actions appear to be at least tremendous examples of conflict-of-interest if not outright political corruption that includes illegalities.

Saturday Bullet Points” will return next Saturday.

Biden Corruption

It’s nothing new: son of former Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter, made millions of dollars in various financial ventures in Europe and Asia. And Biden the younger did NOT make all that money the “old fashioned way:” hard work taking an idea and parlaying it over a period of years into a financial miracle story. No, Hunter Biden made his millions in one way: being the son of the second most powerful person in the U.S. Government — Joe Biden who was Vice President at the time.

Apparently it all began when the Vice President was assigned by President Obama to be the “overseer” of the government of Ukraine on behalf of the U.S. Hmmm… One might ask why that little nation would require monitoring by the U.S. Vice President. After all, Ukraine had very little to do with our nation. One would probably NOT know that Ukraine is infamous for being one of the most financially corrupt countries in Europe for a generation or longer. Ukraine’s leaders were viewed as little more than shopkeepers who perpetually open the Ukraine cash registers of corruption in for anyone who brings in a dollar to “spread around.”

Money laundering was the specialty of Ukraine’s financial evildoers. Large companies — like Burisma Holdings, the company that hired Hunter Biden to serve on their board of directors — through many years waded in and out of legal troubles for moving money in and out of Ukraine, funneling foreign funds through various European banks to “clean.” Often those funds after a while just simply disappeared.

Hunter Biden hit the jackpot when his Dad took the Ukraine gig from Obama. He tagged along with his father. Some in the Biden camp claim that the Vice President did nothing but just what he was empowered to do by Obama — make certain Ukraine “kept their noses clean.” There are numerous stories floating around Europe regarding Joe Biden’s movement of U.S. dollars earmarked as “aid” for Ukraine. Allegedly, much of that $1 billion made its way around the pinwheel of laundering banks in Europe and then ended up in Ukraine — or at least part of it did.

Hunter in an interview was asked if his success in Europe and Asia had anything to do with the fact that his father was the U.S. Vice President. He thought for a moment, and said “Yes, I guess it had to be because of that.”

On numerous occasions, the Vice President has been questioned by members of the media about his knowledge of Hunter’s business in Europe. Joe has always adamantly insisted he knew nothing about any of it. But, that seems to NOT be the truth.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has “not spoken accurately about his knowledge of his son’s involvement in Burisma” or the problem it caused for the Obama administration, Molly Hemingway said Wednesday night. Reacting to the mainstream media and Democrats downplaying the report by two U.S. Senate committees on Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings while his father was vice president, the Federalist senior editor said there is “truly breaking news” in the report. “While this is focused on Hunter Biden and James Biden and other family members of Joe Biden, not Joe Biden himself, it is also true that Joe Biden was revealed to have not spoken accurately about his knowledge of his son’s involvement in Burisma, the Ukrainian energy concern,” Hemingway reported.

The Democratic nominee “said he didn’t know about it when the report shows that in fact, some bureaucrats were so concerned about Hunter Biden’s role that they had briefed him, that they had alerted the FBI,” she said.

The 87-page report states, “in October 2015, senior State Department official Amos Hochstein raised concerns with Vice President Biden, as well as with Hunter Biden, that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board enabled Russian disinformation efforts and risked undermining U.S. policy in Ukraine.”

Hemingway points out “It did cause a problem during the Obama Administration that there was this conflict of interest. It was not dealt with and we again are still awaiting answers as to exactly all the problems that caused.” She rejected the media’s claims there was no evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden, “who has no known skill set that would put him in a position to be doing business with foreign leaders,” in dealings with Russia and China.

“We saw a lot of people in the media claim that this is old news which was an interesting approach to take, given that they hadn’t reported any of this news beforehand and some of it was truly breaking news such as the wire transfer between the Russian oligarch who was married to the former mayor of Moscow, $3.5 million to Hunter Biden,” Hemingway said.

Summary

What this revelation means is that former Vice President Biden has lied on numerous occasions when asked by multiple people about his knowledge of his son’s business in Europe. As recently as Tuesday of this week, at the completion of a speech when speaking to the press, he was asked once more about his personal knowledge of Hunter’s Ukrainian businesses. He angrily stated and restated he had never even spoken to his son about any business matters.

Both Joe and Hunter Biden unfortunately find themselves in a bit of a pickle: evidence and documents recently de-classified provide evidence of just how deep and wide the Biden businesses have been in multiple nations. And much of that “business” has been of questionable dealings that encompass possible human and sex trafficking and prostituion.

We’ll dive in a bit deeper in tomorrow’s Part II of this expose’. But, be assured, while Vice President, Joe Biden put his youngest son Hunter in the right places to maximize the power of the U.S. vice presidency without Biden the elder actually going hands-0n.

The next chapter of this bizarre political novel will take us East. We’ll hitch a ride with Vice President Joe Biden on Air Force Two (along with Hunter) on a trip to Beijing — the second stop on the “Hunter Biden Business Treasure Hunt” this time the treasure came from the hands of the Chinese Communist Party and an investment company owned by the Chinese Government.

And Part II will NOT be the Epilogue to this novel: there’s more. We’ll have Part III of this trilogy.

Breonna Taylor

Once again, a grand jury has rendered a decision in a high-profile case involving police shooting a person of color, this time in Louisville, Kentucky. As if on cue, predestined violent protests and civil unrest erupted across the country. Fires were set, and angry demonstrators continued their monthslong path of destruction, this time fueled by their frustration over the decision in the Breonna Taylor case. In what has also become far too commonplace, two Louisville Metro Police Department officers were shot and wounded Wednesday evening.

Taylor, 26, a black medical worker, was tragically killed this past March in an exchange of gunfire between police and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, who fired a 9 mm pistol at the entry team executing a search warrant. Walker struck police Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly in the leg. Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove returned fire. During the exchange, Taylor was fatally struck six times by police bullets. She had been standing in the hallway, alongside Walker, who was in a shooting stance and remained unscathed during the shootout.

A Jefferson County Grand Jury ultimately charged Brett Hankinson, now a former Louisville Metro Police Department detective, with three counts of “wanton endangerment.” He fired a total of 10 rounds, with some entering an adjacent apartment that contained a male, a pregnant female, and a child. Hankinson has already been fired from the force. He now faces five years on each of the three charged counts. The other two officers were determined to have been justified in firing their weapons.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s office led the investigation into the execution of the search warrant. His was a difficult position. There are concurrent federal, state, and local investigations ongoing. And he would serve as a special prosecutor, an appointment due to concerns that local district attorney offices work too closely with the police departments they may be charged to investigate. The reason for the “special” circumstances was well understood.

But Cameron is also a black man. And too often these days, everything related to our criminal justice system is defined along color lines. For example, on MSNBC, former Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey flippantly said of Cameron: “He’s skin folk, but he is not kinfolk.” Noted race-baiter Colin Kaepernick predictably weighed in with his take that the policing profession contains “white supremacists” and needs to be abolished.

And as usual, lies escalated in number and intensity in the supercharged case from the outset. Louisville’s Courier-Journal set about to fact-check some of the distortions, such as 1) police were at the wrong apartment, 2) police affected a no-knock warrant, 3) Breonna Taylor was shot and killed while asleep in her bed, and 4) Mattingly was wounded by friendly fire. More on all this later.

Defense attorneys and social justice activists often scream non-stop incendiary and inaccurate charges. Wildly inaccurate distortions of fact have recently led to violent riots in Washington, D.C., Chicago, and Minneapolis. The Taylor case has undoubtedly followed a similar false-claims playbook.

First, police secured a search warrant for Taylor’s apartment. A former “significant-other” had once lived there. And while he was arrested at a nearby drug den, Taylor’s apartment was considered a location where drugs were stashed. The court also authorized searches for three other persons if located at the apartment. And while Taylor’s current boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, was not listed on the warrant, her former boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover, was named. In addition, the grand jury determined that police did conduct a “knock and announce” warrant service and identified themselves. This also wasn’t an incident of targeting a disliked person, as was also falsely claimed. Walker, who fired first, was armed with a 9 mm pistol, while police were carrying weapons chambered in .40 caliber. The round that struck Mattingly was a 9 mm round.

Allow me to clear up several more misperceptions.

Beat cops do NOT complete paperwork and run the process necessary to secure warrants. Typically, case personnel works with prosecutors to secure warrants. Law enforcement tactical teams are then briefed on investigation details but draft the takedown plans, which they then execute. In the perfect realm, a senior agency official is then put in charge as the “on-scene commander” to make and give on-the-spot decisions.

Most of such warrants are of the standard “knock and announce” variety. A select few, due to the subject’s history of violence, are “no-knock.” But the distinction between the two doesn’t mean that police fail to identify themselves loudly before making entry. Instead, it is related to the amount of time you afford the inhabitants to open the door.

The Louisville case was NOT a no-knock warrant service, although that has been and still is being proclaimed as “fact” in Mainstream Media reports. Walker may very well have misidentified the entry team as intruders. But once he fired his weapon at them, wounding one of the officers in the process, they had every right to defend themselves.

Cameron defended the decision of the grand jury and decried the new era of “wokeness” that has flooded into our pursuit of justice:

The facts have been examined, and the grand jury, made up of Louisville peers and residents, has decided. Justice is not often easy. It does not fit the mold of public opinion. And it does not conform to shifting standards. It answers only to the facts and to the law.

The social justice awakening of 2020 has its roots in Ferguson, Missouri, and the 2014 justifiable fatal police shooting of Michael Brown. The federal grand jury’s decision not to indict the police officer at the center of that case helped birth the Black Lives Matter movement. And while BLM supporters claim to be fighting for justice, they demand predetermined outcomes, insistent that every police shooting of a minority MUST BE in every such case due specifically to systemic racism and the officers involved therefore are guilty and should be convicted of murder.

That’s not how our system works. That isn’t justice and certainly strips police officers of rights to due process and the presumption of innocence. But as Kentucky Attorney General Cameron cautioned, the standards are shifting. And that is not only unfair to the police, but it is dangerous. What eager, selfless, idealistic, young American attracted to law enforcement hasn’t taken notice? You are considered the enemy now. Assassination attempts are occurring with shocking regularity. This serves as an ominous warning. Foolhardy “abolish the police” initiatives may soon be rendered moot.

Good luck with attracting our best and brightest to the policing profession. After all, the demonization has its costs.

Today on “TNN Live”

We will launch further into the details of this story and what happened in the grand jury during our live show this morning (Friday) at 9:00 AM Central. We will verbatim share the transcript of AG Cameron’s detail of the grand jury facts that resulted in the determination of only one officer being charged in the case. Not a single Mainstream Media outlet has bothered to do that! That should not surprise Americans, but it does. Millions simply shake their heads to watch and listen to so-called Media “experts” still phrase reports as “factual” when they in almost every such case as Breonna’s are portrayed purely from the “Racial Perspective:” that is “white cops shooting a black citizen for no reason other than racial hatred.” Nothing could be further from the truth!

But what is more shocking than even the grand jury results and that Mainstream ignores reporting the truth is what our federal leaders have to say to the public about the grand jury findings. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi weighs-in with a statement that will blow your mind!

Biden’s Disappearing Act

Have you at any time on any days during this campaign season looked at your television where you’ve watched the news for an hour or two, seen multiple segments depicting Donald Trump doing this, speaking there, meeting with foreign leaders in the Oval Office, and wistfully and asked this question: “Where’s Joe Biden?” If you have, you are one of the millions who are asking the same question. The truth is, Joe missing a bunch of public appearances has certainly happened for weeks, if not months. Why is that? Where is he? What is he doing? After all, we have an election in 41 days! Surely “candidate” Joe Biden needs to be interfacing with the public.

And the “missing Joe” continues with NO explanation for his ever-present absence. For instance;

On Tuesday of this week at 9:22 a.m., reporters covering the Joe Biden campaign were told that there would be no more events or newsmaking to issue forth from Team Biden for the rest of the day.

The same thing happened on Saturday. At 8:35 a.m. on Sept. 19, Team Biden put a “lid” on that campaign day.

The lid has come down before noon no less than eight times this month. That would be 36 percent of the campaign days in September, in which the Biden campaign has canceled its activities before lunchtime.

On Sunday, Joe Biden said that 200 million Americans had died from COVID-19, which would make the virus twice as deadly as the Black Plague in Europe was in less than one percent of the time. As there are some 330 million or so Americans, many have apparently died of COVID-19 and weren’t aware of that fact.

That was one day after the campaign shut Biden down before noon.

Then on Monday, Biden answered a question about socialism in the Democrat Party by trashing Bernie Sanders. “I beat the socialist,” he said, which probably didn’t inspire his hard-left base. This, along with catching a question about the Democrats’ “new” idea of packing the Supreme Court in which Biden answered that he would refuse to answer the question because then it would be a distraction from what a terrible guy Donald Trump is.

By Tuesday, it was time to shut Biden down. Six weeks before Election Day, Joe Biden was off the campaign trail.

Don’t forget: in one week, on Tuesday, September 29, Joe Biden is scheduled to meet Donald Trump in the first of three presidential debates. And while Trump is making multiple campaign stops a day in front of large crowds, jokingly asking why Biden bothered to get plastic surgery if he was just going to cover his face with a mask and trolling Biden with threats that he would ban him from the presidency by executive order, Biden can’t even show his face nearly 40 percent of the time.

And when he does, it’s to do softball interviews from his basement or bizarre “campaign” events in front of practically no one. Biden gets off a plane and waves to an empty tarmac, while Trump speaks in front of a hangar full of people.

Does anyone really believe that Joe Biden is going to show up to that debate next week?

Why is Biden’s campaign shutting him down before noon? Their default answer would be that Biden is ahead in the polls and so can play defense. But you’re not playing defense if you’re not playing at all. He isn’t playing defense. He’s on the sidelines. And his lead, if it exists at all, isn’t big enough to sit still and let Trump outwork him.

But the real answer, most people who aren’t partisan Democrats know — and even some partisan Democrats who’ll admit it know — is that Joe Biden’s campaign is shutting him down out of fear that he’s in such bad shape that he physically and mentally can’t perform at the level of a presidential nominee.

This is hardly a controversial theory. It’s obvious. When Biden killed off 200 million Americans with COVID-19 on Sunday, it was the second time he’d made such a gaffe. Back in June, he said it was 120 million. Back then, people were questioning whether he had dementia or some other debilitating brain condition. He was asked about taking a cognitive test a few weeks later, and, to be charitable, he didn’t handle the question particularly well.

Then there’s the issue with the teleprompter. Biden uses one even for softball interviews, and he stumbles his way through those: sometimes comical, sometimes barely finishing with any coherence. He’ll give obvious hand signals to the teleprompter operator. He’ll flub the lines he’s given, stop in mid-sentence, and then say what he’s reading. He’s read stage directions as though they were lines. In one appearance, he took a question, instructed the teleprompter operator to begin scrolling, and then let out an audible sigh as he waited for the words to show up on the screen. And in another interview, he broke out a framed photo of himself with his two sons to show the audience, and in the glare of the reflection off the glass, a teleprompter was clearly visible.

But when Bret Baier earlier this month asked Biden’s campaign spokesman T.J. Ducklo about the teleprompter, the latter went ballistic and accused Baier of shilling for the Trump campaign. Baier calmly interrupted Ducklo’s tirade to note that he wasn’t answering the question.

It ought to be pointed out that Biden’s teleprompter, without which his speech becomes incredibly messy, won’t make an appearance at the debate. His team might attempt to “cheat” using a wireless earpiece, but if Joe Biden could listen and talk coherently at the same time, something that is not all that easy to do, his team would be doing that with him rather than the teleprompter. He’s going to have to speak extemporaneously in dueling with Trump.

Let’s remember that Donald Trump is the man who took on one of the most impressive, massive fields of presidential hopefuls ever assembled — the 2016 GOP field — and tore it to pieces. He took apart Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and several other high-profile Republican political veterans known for impressive debating abilities, and did it with ease. Then he took apart Hillary Clinton in a similar way.

That was when Trump was a political rookie who didn’t have as full command of the issues as the veterans did. Now he’s been president for three years and probably knows those issues better than anyone else.

Indeed, Joe Biden, who has, in the words of former Obama defense secretary Robert Gates, has been wrong about every foreign policy issue in modern American history and thinks two-thirds of the American people are six feet deep due to COVID-19.

Joe Biden isn’t black, he isn’t gay, he isn’t Hispanic, and he isn’t female. Joe Biden is an old white guy who has probably said more racist things than any American politician since David Duke. Nobody would cry for Joe Biden if Trump spent 90 minutes dressing him down on national TV. Sure, Democrats will whine about it, but malleable voters who may not care for Trump’s style but haven’t written him off yet will at least note how much more “on the ball” Trump is than Biden, even if they think he’s committing elder abuse at the debate.

Don’t forget: Trump is just three years younger than Biden.

And everything about Biden’s campaign to date indicates they don’t think there are any undecided voters out there anyway. They think this election is all about turnout, whether of real people or fictitious ones, or perhaps some of those 200 million dead Americans. The latter will rise from the grave and mail in their COVID-soaked ballots for Biden regardless of what gaffes he makes between now and Nov. 3. That’s why they’ve begun shutting Biden down at the first sign he might perform worse than the current status quo.

How it happens, I can’t say, though the apparent theory would be that Biden will suddenly test positive for COVID-19, it’s hard to see Team Biden putting their guy into that debate next week. The most obvious way for him to lose this election would be to have an utter meltdown in which he descends into a nonsensical word salad. At the same time, Trump berates him for his lack of preparation and offers the crowd a “See what I’m telling you?” indictment of Biden’s lack of fitness.

It would be much better for Joe to become ill and bow and getting known as “No Show Joe” than to have that meltdown in front of the Americans looking in. It’s the old line — better to keep silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.

That’s why the “lid” comes out almost half the time. And it’s why you might want to make backup plans for next Tuesday night in case the debate doesn’t come off as scheduled,

At this point, I think it’s 50-50 at best!

We WILL Have Chaos Nationwide on November 3rd

It’s becoming increasingly clear that we should conduct the November election in as normal a manner as possible. We should have as many of our regular polling places open as we can—and we should resist the ongoing push to have an all-mail election or a massive increase in absentee balloting with an elimination of the protective protocols in place for such ballots.

A couple of personal experiences illustrate why. Have you been to the grocery store or drug store lately? These retail establishments have all of the safety protocols in place that health experts have recommended, from line spacing to a mask-wearing requirement to sanitation stations. If we can go shopping in person, why can’t we vote in person?

The answer, of course, is that we can, despite the push by some to scare voters away from the polls. We know we can because multiple states and countries have held elections with in-person voting in this and prior pandemics—and have done so successfully, using all the health safety protocols recommended by experts.

Liberia did it in 2014 in the midst of the Ebola pandemic sweeping West Africa. South Korea did it on April 15 of this year when 29 million South Koreans voted in their national elections; reports indicate there was no COVID-19 spike after that election. Wisconsin did it on April 7 when several hundred thousand state residents voted in person in their regular polling places. The Wisconsin Election Commission implemented very strict safety procedures, stricter than what we experience when we go shopping. That includes social distancing in voter lines; hand washing/sanitizing stations for all voters when entering and leaving polling places, as well as regular sanitizing of all tables, door handles, voting booths, voting equipment, and everything else being touched or handled in the polling place. Some polling locations even had curbside voting for those who didn’t want to come into the polling place.

A report released by analysts from the World Health Organization and Stanford University after the Wisconsin election found “no detectable surge” in COVID-19 “transmissions due to the April 7” election. Similarly, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a report on July 31 looking at the experience of Milwaukee, the largest city in Wisconsin. It concluded that there was no “increase in cases, hospitalizations, or deaths” from COVID-19 due to the election. In fact, there were fewer cases reported during the “incubation period” after the election—April 9-21—than in the 13 days preceding the election.

The CDC has issued guidelines for conducting in-person voting safety, which include everything from social distancing in voter lines to cleaning and disinfecting of equipment and voting materials used in a polling location. Rather than telling voters to vote by mail as so many jurisdictions are mistakenly doing and decreasing the number of polling locations, the CDC recommends “increasing the number of polling locations” in order to “improve the ability to social distance.”

Will this impose extra costs over what state legislatures already appropriated for the administration of the 2020 elections? Yes, but that is why Congress approved over $400 million in the CARE Act that has already been distributed to the states by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) to pay for those extra costs.

Another all-too common experience underscores the superiority of in-person voting: Have you ever received mail at your home addressed to the folks who lived there before you? Has your neighbor down the street ever knocked on your front door to give you a letter that had been mistakenly delivered to his house? That is not an isolated problem. The EAC reported that well over two million absentee or mail ballots sent to voters by election officials were returned as “undeliverable” by the U.S. Postal Service in the last four federal elections. The fate of more than 28 million ballots is labeled as “unknown,” defined by the EAC as those that “were not returned by a voter, spoiled, returned as undeliverable, or otherwise unable to be tracked.”

Remember the Wisconsin primary where many residents voted in person? Unfortunately, many others tried to vote with absentee ballots. The Inspector-General of the USPS recently reported that thousands of those ballots were never delivered to Wisconsin voters, while others were never postmarked. This led to them being rejected by election officials since they had no way of knowing if the ballots were completed and mailed prior to Election Day.

This has been a recurring problem in almost all of the primaries held since March where election officials made the mistake of encouraging voters to use absentee ballots to vote. The District of Columbia had a similar problem when it held its primary, leading to very long lines on Election Day at the greatly reduced number of open polling places. Why? Because voters who had not gotten the absentee ballots they had requested showed up in person to vote.

The rejection rate for mailed ballots is much higher than ballots cast in person. There is no election official in voters’ homes to answer questions or remedy any potential problems, unlike at a polling place. During the recent primary elections in New York, which also had a huge increase in absentee ballots, large numbers of ballots were rejected for a whole host of reasons, something that happens every election:

  • voters forgetting to sign the ballots;
  • signatures on the absentee ballots not matching voters’ registration signatures;
  • voters not properly supplying all of the registration information required;
  • USPS forgetting to postmark the returning ballot envelopes from voters; and
  • ballots not being delivered in time to be counted.

More than half a million absentee ballots were ultimately rejected in recent primaries, including over 80,000 — one out of every five ballot — in New York City alone — an enormous and unacceptable disenfranchisement rate.

In 2012, before the current progressive love affair with absentee ballots and all-mail elections, The New York Times actually did a highly critical report on absentee ballots. They concluded that “votes cast by mail are less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than those cast in a voting booth.” In fact, the Times said, the rejection rate for absentee ballots by election officials is “double the rate for in-person voting.” As the then-election supervisor of Tallahassee, Florida said, “the more people you force to vote by mail, the more invalid ballots you generate.”

There has been a very loud and contentious debate recently about the USPS and whether it needs more funding. But the postal service has had problems for years, problems that won’t be solved by using the standard Washington solution of throwing more money at them. The USPS is badly managed, badly organized, and has numerous employee unions that have resisted any and all reforms intended to try to bring it into the 21st Century and turn it into the type of efficient, effective organization like other delivery services such as FedEx and UPS.

The USPS’s own standards are simply inadequate for a mail-in election. In November, the USPS Inspector General released a report on its delivery of “election mail” in the 2018 congressional elections. Its goal was the timely delivery of absentee ballots 96% of the time—not 100%. That means that even if the USPS met its goal, 4% of voters would potentially not have their absentee ballots delivered in time to be counted. The Inspector General (IG) said that USPS achieved its goal nationwide, on average, 95.6% of the time.

But the IG report also listed the worst mail processing facilities in the country, located in California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, and Wisconsin, which only managed to deliver this very important mail on-time 84.2% of the time. Whether it is 4% or 16%, that translates to literally millions of absentee and mail-in ballots that may not be delivered in time.

This problem has not been resolved over the two intervening years. To test this issue, the CBS Morning News recently set up a P.O. box at a Philadelphia post office to represent a local election office. They then mailed 100 envelopes from various locations in the city to the box that were the same size and class of mail as absentee ballot envelopes. A week later, most of the envelopes had apparently not arrived, although after explaining what was going on to a manager, the “votes were found.” There were two pieces of mail meant for someone else in the box, including a birthday card. But three of the 100 envelopes were missing, so effectively 3% of mock voters were disenfranchised. Out of a second batch of 100 envelopes mailed, 21% had not arrived after a week.

Compare that to walking into your polling booth, filling out your ballot, and depositing it in a ballot box — in other words, not being dependent on the issues of the postal service to hopefully deliver you ballot in time and to the correct address both ways.

Of course, another big problem with absentee ballots is that they are completed outside the supervision of election officials and outside the observation of poll watchers, destroying the transparency that is the hallmark of our election process. They are the easiest ballots to steal, forge and alter. Moreover, because state laws that ban electioneering in polling places don’t apply to voters’ homes, voters become vulnerable to pressure, intimidation, and coercion from individuals who have a stake in the outcome of the election.

There are numerous cases involving absentee ballot fraud from around the nation.  Judicial Watch has a database that contains details of 300+ such cases that have been investigated and proven. Such problems were encountered in Paterson, New Jersey after it made the mistake of switching to an all-mail process for its recent municipal election, which also had a very high rejection rate. Four locals have already been criminally charged in an absentee-ballot fraud scheme, and a new election has been ordered.

Paterson is not unique. The New York Post recently published a disturbing story about a longtime Democratic political operative who admits that he has committed fraud through phony, forged, and altered absentee ballots for decades in New Jersey in legislative, mayoral and congressional races. He describes how simple it is and says he has “led teams of fraudsters and mentored at least 20 operatives in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.” Changing the outcome of an election is particularly easy to do in close elections—and we have close elections all the time in this country.

Unfortunately, the targets of such schemes are often those most vulnerable. As a court outlined in a 2003 mayoral primary election in East Chicago that involved, according to the court, “pervasive” and “voluminous, widespread” absentee ballot fraud, those targeted “were first-time voters or otherwise less informed or lacking in knowledge of the voting process, the infirm, the poor and those with limited skills in the English language.”

Despite these vulnerabilities, lawsuits have been filed all over the country by liberal advocacy groups and the Democratic Party to make it even easier to commit absentee ballot fraud. This includes getting rid of voter ID and witness signature or notarization requirements; overriding state deadlines for absentee ballots to be either returned or postmarked by Election Day; voiding state laws banning vote harvesting by third parties; and requiring that voters be sent postage — prepaid envelopes for the return of completed absentee ballots. This last requirement means the USPS may not postmark the envelopes again, making it impossible for election officials to know whether a ballot was completed and mailed before or after the election.

Election officials also are not equipped to handle large numbers of absentee ballots. New York took six weeks to count the votes cast in its June 23 primary after there was an enormous increase in the number of ballots cast by mail. The outcome is still being contested through litigation over the high rejection rate of those ballots. If similar delays occur after the November general election in New York and numerous other states, it could be weeks before we know who won the presidential election if the race is close. It could be even longer if litigation contesting the outcome is filed in not just one state, as happened in 2000 in Florida, but in numerous states.

We have all the makings for a potential nightmare in November. Here’s hoping that doesn’t come to pass. The best way to do that is to have as normal an election as possible without making all of these major, last-minute changes in the voting and election process.

Rachel Maddow Has Determined What is the Trump Plan for COVID-19 Treatment: “Let Them Die!”

Everyone reading this knows my personal and professional animosity for Rachel Maddow of MSNBC. She seldom delivers the truth to her tiny audience, is the “shock-jock” for her television network, who always relies on some sensational “Uh-Oh!” to stimulate her fans. Who can forget that famous expose’ she gave to America by revealing one year of President Trump’s tax returns that mysteriously appeared in her mailbox. She built the expectation of blockbuster news the entire day. When she finally shared her terrible news, it seemed that President Trump paid “only” $15 million in federal taxes that year. Woe! Throw him in jail!

In the current uproar in D.C., Maddow finds herself lacking in relativity to today’s big news stories. “What to do?” Hmmm, how about another blockbuster, “Gotcha!” Her latest attempt to crawl back into being relative in the news is about Coronavirus. Why not? With RBG’s death, the holocaust of rioting, looting, and election hoopla, just flip the calendar pages back 30-days or so and find yourself another conspiracy. And that she has done.

What is her blockbuster? President Trump’s new COVID-19 strategy is to simply allow herd immunity, which enables the virus to run its course while in doing so, killing millions of Americans as we “hope” in doing so most Americans will develop a natural immunity to the disease. And to show us just how great a travesty for the President to don’t that strategy, she gave us some “shock-jock” data.

The President’s “new” position on treating the virus (according to Maddow) will result in millions upon millions of deaths throughout the country! Never mind this in NO way is part of what the CDC or the White House has shown to be a process that they have or will initiate to fight COVID-19. How in the world did Maddow even find herself in possession of those numbers?

To arrive at those death numbers, Maddow took the number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in the U.S. (what she claimed was just over 6.6 million) and compared it to the number of recorded deaths from the virus (around 200,000), concluding that the death rate from the disease was 2.9% and that pursuing a herd immunity strategy countrywide would thus result in multiple millions of American deaths before the virus would burn out.

“That would be what [President Trump] is aiming for,” Maddow said.

Here’s Rachel Maddow making her case directly to her viewers a few days ago after the President mentioned that “while” we are completing the aggressive development, testing, and getting an approved vaccine to the marketplace, we look at what has already developed in multiple countries around the world, “herd immunity.” She takes the President’s words and takes off on a trip to Planet Krypton:

 

Can you believe the insulting insinuation that runs throughout Maddow’s presentation? She states plainly in her closing that continuing the already aggressive and historic push to get a vaccine for COVID-19 to the marketplace is simply “too hard for this president.”

Let’s put that to the side for a moment and examine Maddow’s data and conclusions:

Strictly speaking, Maddow’s math is correct, but the numbers she’s using to make those calculations are, at least by the measure of earlier expert analysis, wildly off-base, or in TruthNewsNetwork-speak, “insane!”

The U.S. has indeed recorded well over six million COVID-19 cases (the website Worldometers puts it at slightly more than Maddow’s 6.6 million estimate, at just under 7 million). Comparing the number of recorded U.S. deaths to those cases will get you Maddow’s high death rate of around 2.9%.

But only counting the number of confirmed cases isn’t how virologists and public health officials calculate the total caseload of a pandemic disease. Instead, they use various tools — including serology tests, hospital data, and epidemiological projections — to estimate how widespread a virus is within society.

For instance, that’s how the CDC calculates the severity of influenza seasons in the country. “Because influenza surveillance does not capture all cases of flu that occur in the U.S., CDC provides [estimated] ranges to reflect the larger burden of influenza better,” the CDC says on its website.

Public health officials have made similar projections with COVID-19. One study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in July estimated “six to 24 times more infections” than had been recorded by public health officials in the U.S. at the time. And remember: “cases,” which is the word used by ALL media in reporting those tested positive for COVID-19, is an incorrect medical term. Testing positive for the virus is simply, in medical terms, called an “infection.” Cases are only confirmed when a patient becomes symptomatic and begins to require medical treatment. Those are two VERY different things that, if factored into the “official” COVID-19 numbers, would dramatically REDUCE the number of actual COVID cases in the nation. “Infected” and “Symptomatic” are vastly different in number. But classifying every infection as a case gives those anxious to petrify Americans with fear ammunition with which they can (and have) used against us all.

Several estimates of total COVID numbers throughout the country have been put forth throughout the pandemic in the U.S., with most of them falling more or less within the range of CDC Director Robert Redfield’s estimate in July that “for every case that’s reported, there are ten other infections.” (there’s that word “case” again, instead of using “infections”)

It is unclear if Maddow is aware of those estimates. Applying Redfield’s figure to current confirmed U.S. coronavirus infections would put the United States at close to 70,000,000 infections since the pandemic began in this country. Assuming the death toll is roughly accurate, then the national death rate of the disease in the U.S. would hover around 0.28%, or approximately ten times lower than Maddow’s claims.

Maddow stated that a minimum of 65% of the U.S., or about 215,000,000 citizens, would likely need to contract the disease for herd immunity to kick in. Applying an 0.28% death rate to that number of infections still produces a shockingly high number — a little over 600,000 deaths.

Yet that estimate also fails to account for the belief among some scientists that most of the population may have some degree of preexisting immunity to COVID-19, meaning much less than 65% of the people might have to become infected by the coronavirus before the disease begins to burn out.

The actual number of infections of COVID-19 throughout the United States may never be known; we also cannot yet say how much of the population is at least partially immune to the virus.

But Maddow’s approach to epidemiological analysis — in which she implicitly assumes that a disease’s spread is fully captured by merely the number of confirmed cases of it — is significantly divergent from that which is practiced by epidemiologists and other public health authorities.

Summary

I can only surmise ONE explanation for Rachel Maddow’s creating this faux horror story so that she can attempt to make herself and her failing show relevant during the current political “Scamdemic” in which we find ourselves. Consistently throughout her career at MSNBC, Maddow finds herself riding a rollercoaster of success and struggling to rescue her dwindling audience numbers based on the “conspiracy wind of the day.” Maybe she missed it: today’s conspiracy in D.C. is President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell throwing all reason and historical perspective regarding replacing a Supreme Court Justice to the wind! And she has NOTHING new to add to that conversation.

I will end by repeating something a former employee said to me in an office full of fellow employees when I reacted to some comment a person made with a funny quip that was innocent in my intent and its substance. But, somehow, it struck her the wrong way. She looked at me and said in a gentle and normal tone: “Dan, go lay down by your bowl!”

I think that might be an appropriate response to Maddow regarding this rush for relevance and struggle for ratings. But I won’t say it to her. You just think about it!

The Grass Is Usually Greener Here Than There

During the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency I spent 62 days in Europe on business. My schedule sent me to Germany, Austria, Lichtenstein, Northern Italy and to Zurich, Switzerland, which was the hub of the trip. I interfaced daily almost all day with business people from various countries who, obviously, each had varying views of the US. Almost to a person, they all wanted to know about Donald Trump. They too had received their entire impressions of Mr. Trump from the media.

What surprised me the most was that most of them summarily rejected the “person” their media portrayed as Donald Trump. Sound familiar? Just as did the US mainstream media here, the European media chose to minimize his leadership and governing abilities. Even after his win, they painted him as a bumbling American “cowboy” who did little more than create problems for the “real” politicians in America.

During and after all those conversations with business leaders, the consensus was “The American people need to open their eyes and see the man currently in the White House knows how to run the business of your nation. He ran his own businesses pretty well.” Almost to a person I was told that American politicians have apparently abandoned the “process” of governing to concentrate on the “benefits” of governing instead of just governing the American people. Do you know why they felt that way? They had watched THEIR governments become that in Europe over generations!

It was eye-opening to compare our nation to others in every way: socially, economically, interacting with others, culturally, and, of course, politically. They share many of the same challenges as do Americans. Many of OUR challenges were identical to theirs’. But there was one stark similarity: politicians there just as here are caught-up in the concentration on government forcing its will on citizens with less and less concentration on the citizens’ will of government.

Those Europeans were miffed at Americans allowing our government to force its control on us. After all, the US is a representative democracy in which the people are supposed to be in charge. They are shocked Americans don’t act aggressively to protect that Constitutional structure.

Maybe that “grass is greener on the other side” isn’t true after all!

That was a few years ago. Today we find ourselves living in a quagmire created by the politicization of anything and everything one can even imagine might be used to create mass chaos for political gain. Why do we have such racial unrest, anarchy, division on every front, demonstrations and protests that turn violent, and our such hatred for those holding opposite political ideology? I see why they look at us and shake their heads.

“Americans have had it really good for a long time and just don’t know what they are about to lose.” That comes from a lawyer with whom I worked with while there — a Swiss native and one of just a handful of Swiss government Certified Financial attorneys whose grandfather was a Swiss government leaders.

Considering all of these European experiences, I find it odd that someone who I would never suspect of being pro-American a few days ago took to the internet to chide us all, voicing the same things many of those Europeans voiced to me while I was there. Who would think that a relative of Osama bin Ladin would write and publish an admonition to Americans to rethink where it seems we are taking our nation. But bin Ladin’s niece did just that.

I can’t think of a better way to share her thoughts than to “just share her thoughts.” Here is her letter to you and me.

Dear America,

Two-hundred-and-forty-four years ago, the resolve, courage, and wisdom of your Founding Fathers forever changed the course of history. For the first time, with the ratification of your Declaration of Independence, mankind was offered an unmatched societal ideal. Human beings were recognized for what we truly are by nature: all created free and equal, endowed with unalienable rights derive from our Creator. With your Constitution, your Founders sealed these God given rights, and protected them by instituting a limited form of self-government along with a robust justice system.

This, America, is what makes your nation exceptional. It is why you have stood as a beacon of democracy and hope for all subjugated peoples over the past two centuries. During some of our darkest hours, we remember how you fought for those who couldn’t defend themselves from tyranny, at the cost of your own brave men. The world is forever in debt to your sacrifice, and we are grateful for the refuge you provide those who can flee persecution.

This, America, is your heritage and the reason we still look to you as our champion of liberty. Those currently fighting for their freedoms across the world value your brave Founding Fathers. From the peaceful Hong Kong protesters who proudly brandish the American flag in the streets, to the Iranian students who refused to walk over the painted star-and-stripes on the ground of a Tehran university, people who live under oppressive regimes know first hand that being free has no price. And they know that America is the ultimate shelter for the downtrodden.

Watching the gratuitous violence, streets burn, buildings and statues being defaced in America over these past months, I am heartbroken to see how an entire generation was successfully brainwashed into hating the very nation that has yielded the most freedom, justice and equality anywhere in the world.

I am also highly distressed by the blatant erosion at various levels of your most basic individual rights and freedoms as guaranteed by your Bill of Rights, from arbitrary censorship of speech to unlawful, politically motivated abuses of justice.

America, this is why I feel compelled to address you. Though I am an unlikely messenger at first glance — rest assured that the name that I carry is antithetical to the values I hold — my heart is in the right place: with you. The level of urgency coupled with the platform afforded to me by my circumstance compel me to speak up and warn you before it is too late.

The question is, how did we get to this point? The truth is that the undoing of America has been decades in the making. The globalists, Deep State, the swamp, whichever name you call them, have been hard at work to weaken America’s sovereignty and standing as world leader. Intent on erecting a new system of world governance where they would be in total control, they are seeking to undermine the fundamental principle of your country, ‘a government for the people by the people’, replacing it instead with a world order of international institutions ultimately puppeteered by a caste of technocrats, oligarchs and international bankers.

Though your Constitution stands firmly in their way, it never deterred them. They infiltrated governmental and intelligence agencies, and all realms of society — education, media, entertainment, culture. At their disposal, tools of mass population influence: propaganda, fake news and censorship. They set out to destroy your fundamental values and divide you. They negated God, dissolved the family unit and dissevered us from moral objectivity, effectively leaving a vacuum of degeneracy, cognitive dissonance and absurdity. This social engineering operation took place as we were lulled into a sense of comfort and complacency due to modernity’s technological progress and liberalism’s appeal. In reality we were being driven further down a path of enslavement while they solidified their plans for a covert power grab.

However, they didn’t count on a great awakening of people tired of being crushed by their self-serving economic policies. Nor did they foresee that COVID-19 would highlight their system’s gross failings, from an over dependence on a global supply chain to corruption in major institutions such as the World Health Organization. They didn’t anticipate that we would all rally online to share information and real news, bypassing their controlled mainstream media outlets. Above all, they never thought Hillary Clinton would lose.

Since President Trump’s victory, these nefarious forces have done everything in their power to stop him from reversing past administrations’ destructive policies. They have failed, hoax after hoax. Despite their relentless attacks on all fronts, President Trump has demonstrated he is the only leader who can save us from a bleak future. As evidenced by his first term, results of his America First policy speak for themselves.

Domestically, he removed handicapping regulations to American economic growth; rebuilt a depleted military; brought back manufacturing and revamped dying industries by renegotiating trade deals and cutting taxes; achieved energy independence; curbed immigration — all of which contributed to setting record unemployment rates. He also saved your tax payer dollars by withdrawing from corrupt international organizations and agreements. Remarkably, he tackled neglected issues such as human trafficking and unjust incarceration; defunded Planned Parenthood; took care of your disregarded veterans; lowered prescription drug prices. All these undertakings prove just how much he values the lives and wellbeing of ALL Americans.

By strengthening America from within, President Trump bolstered his plans when it comes to foreign policy, and thanks to his vision and tactical use of diplomatic avenues, has made the world a much safer place since taking office. To name a few achievements: he stood up to China, kept us out of new wars, made Europe comply with their Nato requirements, solidified ties with Israel, overturned the disastrous Iran deal, obliterated Isis, took down other key terrorists, and facilitated a historic peace deal between Israel and the UAE. His administration has also made Christian persecution worldwide a top priority with the State Department instituting the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom, the first of its kind.

With President Trump at her helm, America has a chance to restore her principles, pride, independence and true place in the world as beacon of liberty and hope for all. This to me, is what ‘Make America Great Again’ means. Looking back at your country’s foundation, and preserving what makes it truly great. But also knowing that the best is yet to come.

All the above achievements will be torpedoed with a Biden/Harris presidency, and the dream of America’s enemies to see her weak and on her knees would be fulfilled. Make no mistake America, you are under attack. Supported by the fake news propaganda machine and violent marxists groups such as antifa with their Isis-type tactics, they have pushed their agenda through fearmongering, hypocrisy, lies and destruction onto you, the American people, and for one motive only: power. The escalation of the past four years is your preview of what to expect should we lose: an abject repudiation of our Judeo-Christian values and utter disregard for your individual rights. This insurrection, if successful, would cause the unravelling of law and order and the end of your Republic as we know it. Tyranny would inevitably ensue.

America, you are at the very edge of the precipice. Please wake up! Take hold! Fight for your country, and be proud of your roots! Uphold your values. Stand for your flag and your anthem. Defend your history. Don’t relent in the face of those who seek to rewrite it to serve their narrative and justify the destruction of your nation. You have much to cherish and protect for your sake, and ours.

We need you to stay the course, America. You are our last safeguard from an imminent civilizational collapse and if you lose, all humanity loses.

Be assured, we are with you in this decisive hour in your history. All of us freedom-seeking and loving people across the globe pray for you to succeed.

Your fellow patriot,

Noor bin Ladin
