CAN CHINA AVOID THE FATE OF SOVIET RUSSIA?
By Bertill Haggman*
To answer this question, it is necessary to go back to the founding of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) initiated by the Communist International (Comintern) agent Grigori Voitinsky (1893 – 1953). He was secretary of the Far Eastern Bureau (FEB) of the Comintern. He later became the founder of Soviet sinology. Voitinsky operated from Irkutsk, Siberia. The bureau was founded the same year as the Soviets initiated what was called ”the united front from below,” meaning that ”enemy parties” should be subverted by infiltration,
The party was officially founded in Shanghai in 1921. Mao attended the founding as one of a small group of 57 delegates. Voitinsky operated from Irkutsk, Siberia.
The united front tactics of Comintern was used by Antifa in the United States in the runup to the election during 2020. The Comintern in 1933 directed the Soviet-led Communist Party USA to form the American League Against War and Fascism. That group was in turn patterned after Germany’s Antifascist Action – or Antifa – formed one year earlier in 1932.
CPUSA leader Manning Johnson testified to Congress in 1953 that the goal of the front group was never the abolishment of fascism, but rather “the subversion and subsequent overthrow of the United States.”
The U.S. National Security Council’s Robert O’Brien in 2020 described Antifa foot soldiers as “militant radicals who come into our cities and cross state lines.”
“They’re organized to use Molotov cocktails, fireworks and gas to burn down our cities, especially businesses in minority neighborhoods. It’s got to be stopped,” he said.
That China uses political warfare tactics of the now defunct CPSU does not bode well for the CCP. The question seems only to be when the party will follow CPSU on the ash heap of history.
The 1980s was a crucial decade for victory of the West in the Cold War. When President Ronald Reagan took over in 1980, the reduced defense spending had begun to threaten the security of the United States. President Reagan turned this around and spending increased from US $134 billion in 1980 to US $253 billion in 1985. The objective was to balance the Soviet buildup and thus give the United States strength at the negotiating table.
The Reagan Administration also reversed the trend of Soviet expansionism. The half‑hearted efforts in the field of containment resulted in Soviet expansionism in 1975 to 1980. The Soviet Union was actively seeking global hegemony and control on all continents.
The policy of containment had been abandoned in the 1970s and replaced by détente. Now the Reagan administration reversed the trend using a number of means.
The National Security Decision Directives (NSDDs) were important. A National Security Decision Directive was a formal written order directing senior advisers and departments on policy. President Reagan signed a large number of such directives during the period 1980 – 1988 but three of them are especially important for the victory in the Cold War.
One of them was NSDD 32. It did in short made clear that the United States would not accept Soviet domination of Eastern Europe.
The principal objectives were:
Support for underground movements in the Soviet dominated part of Europe. In detail it authorized aid for the Solidarity labor movement in Poland, the creation of clandestine Polish newspapers and broadcasting operations and cooperation with Vatican political initiatives in, for instance, Poland.
Intensification of psychological operations, particularly radio broadcasts such as Voice of America and Radio Free Europe.
Economic war against the regime in Moscow and attempts via diplomacy to weaken the heavy reliance of the East European regimes on Moscow were included.
The directive was signed in May, 1982.
It took around ten years to dismantle the CPSU. It may take somewhat longer to dismantle the CCP with its 90 million members.
STATE OF THE UNION
Interview With Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA; Interview With Dr. Sanjay Gupta; Interview With Rep. Nikema Williams (D-GA); Interview With U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken. Aired 9-10a ET
DANA BASH, CNN HOST: Welcome back to STATE OF THE UNION. I'm Dana Bash.
Tensions between the U.S. and China are rising, after officials clashed in a rare public confrontation earlier this month, and the U.S. and the E.U. imposed new sanctions over China's human rights abuses.
The growing threat from China is one of several reasons the Biden administration is working to reinvigorate America's relationship with allies.
We spoke exclusively to the U.S. secretary of state, Tony Blinken, as he wrapped up a NATO summit in Brussels, about the Biden's -- Biden administration's new approach.
BASH: Thank you so much, Mr. Secretary, for joining me.
I want to start with a speech this week that you gave. You listed China first among the military and non-military threats to the United States. This comes, of course, after you clashed with Chinese officials in Anchorage last week.
China is challenging the U.S. on cybersecurity, economics and with its military and committing what you called genocide against the Uyghurs.
So, do you consider China the United States' biggest adversary?
BLINKEN: Dana, I wouldn't simplify it to one label.
There are clearly and increasingly adversarial aspects of the relationship. There are certainly competitive ones. There are also still some cooperative ones. But the common denominator is the need to approach China from a position of strength, whether it's adversarial, whether it's competitive, whether it's cooperative.
And that's a big part of the reason that I was in -- in Asia last week, in Japan and Korea and a big part of the reason that I'm here in Europe and at NATO and the E.U. this week. It's about making sure that, as we engage China, one of our biggest sources of strength, our alliances, our partnerships, when we approach the challenges that China poses together, We're going to be much more effective in dealing with them.
BASH: You said at your confirmation hearing, Mr. Secretary, that you believe the Chinese government misled the world about coronavirus.
Given that and the millions of people, of course, who have died around the world, should China be punished for that?
BLINKEN: You know, I think the issue for us is to make sure that we do everything possible to prevent another pandemic, even as we're working through this one, or at the very least to make sure that we can mitigate in much more effective ways any damage done if something happens in the future.
And a big part of that is making sure that we have a system in place, including with the World Health Organization, that features transparency, that features information-sharing, and features access for international experts at the start of something like this.
And that's where I think China, like every other country, has real obligations that it needs to make good on. So, I think what we need to be focused on is making sure we're protecting ourselves and protecting the world going forward.
And that's going to require a lot of reform. And it's going to require China to do things that it hasn't done in the past.
BASH: That sounded like a no when it comes to repercussions for what happened in the past, and maybe even that is happening currently, which is the damage that is being done around the world because of this pandemic. No repercussions? No punishment?
BLINKEN: Look, I think that we've got to -- there's a report coming out shortly by the World Health Organization.
We've got real concerns about the methodology and the process that went into that report, including the fact that the government in Beijing apparently helped to write it.
But let's see what comes out in that report. But we do need to have both accountability for the past, but I think our focus needs to be on building a stronger system for the future.
Marijuana Madness in the White House
By Cliff Kincaid - March 28, 2021
If you’ve been following “March Madness,” look no further than the purge of potheads in the White House. Somebody in power -- perhaps Joe Biden himself -- decided that potheads should not be writing his policies and speeches. He understands that using marijuana is still illegal under federal law and that it has wreaked havoc on his own family members.
News of the firings of potheads was leaked to the publication The Daily Beast, which reported that “dozens of young White House staffers have been suspended, asked to resign, or placed in a remote work program due to past marijuana use.”
Perhaps the stench of marijuana was getting too heavy around the Oval Office. Or perhaps there is a growing awareness at the highest levels of the government of the damage the drug is doing to people.
If it wasn’t Biden, it may have been Dr. Vivek Murthy, who was just confirmed as Surgeon General. He has been opposed to marijuana legalization in the past and has expressed concern about how rapidly states have been legalizing marijuana without understanding the potency of the drug.
In a letter to Dr. Murthy, the group Americans Against Legalizing Marijuana noted that research on marijuana’s harmful effects is known and accumulating. “This is a social change that has no positive outcomes,” the group says.
Anti-drug activists are pleased that the Biden White House has “doubled down” on defending the firing of potheads in the face of immense pressure and ridicule.
Our media have been implicated in the drug culture since the Jimmy Carter days, when Dr. Peter Bourne, Carter’s adviser on drug abuse, resigned amidst charges that he had written an illegal prescription for quaaludes and had been observed snorting cocaine at a National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) party. Two Washington Post reporters were at the party.
In regard to marijuana and other drugs, some believe we are entering the Brave New World of Aldous Huxley, where Soma is prescribed for the population, to alter their consciousness. The Journal of Addiction Research & Therapy has published a ground-breaking analysis of how marijuana is linked to violence, mental illness and even Jihad.
In this regard, the arrest of a Black Lives Matter activist in possession of a firearm, marijuana and drug paraphernalia is significant. He was arrested for allegedly participating in the defacement of a statue of former President Lincoln in Idaho during Black History Month. The activist, Terry Wilson, was identified as a former Boise State University adjunct professor.
The White House pothead firings created a problem, since Vice President Harris is a disciple of the marijuana movement, having declared it a mind-altering substance that brings “joy” to the world. For potheads, “Joy to the World” means recreational marijuana. For Democrats and some Republicans, legalization means that stoners with a habit buy more and more dope, creating more government revenue.
Harris said during the campaign that marijuana would be decriminalized at a federal level in the United States under a Biden administration.
Democrats have been spearheading the drug legalization movement, egged on by millions from George Soros and Mark Zuckerberg, and there has been predictable resistance to the firing of those White House staffers over their marijuana use.
The group NORML highlighted the fact that the Congressional Marijuana Caucus, led by Representatives Earl Blumenauer, Don Beyer, Jared Huffman, Mondaire Jones, and Barbara Lee, fired off a letter to Biden protesting the firings. The members noted that “Those in the upper ranks of your administration won’t face consequences for their cannabis use, and nor should they, but the same standard should be applied across the administration.”
By that they meant Kamala Harris, now in charge of America’s open borders policy.
Kamala Harris loves marijuana, which is about to be legalized nationally in Mexico, and Joe Biden knows a lot about it, too. His daughter was busted for weed and his son Hunter experienced harder drugs like cocaine, forcing him out of the military after he was caught snorting.
There’s absolutely no indication that China Joe is a user but Barack Hussein Obama was such a notorious abuser of hard drugs that there was speculation about whether this stoner president was mentally impaired. Of course, China Joe seems mentally impaired in other ways.
Obama was a former member of the “Choom Gang” of heavy marijuana users and admitted to using cocaine. David Maraniss, author of a book on Obama, notes that the word “choom” means to smoke marijuana. He said Obama “started a few pot-smoking trends,” suggesting the future president understood ways to make the “high” from the drug even more powerful and lasting. One method they used was to smoke dope in a car and then inhale or suck in what was left of the smoke in the ceiling of the car.
The firing of the Biden White House pothead staffers gives us some hope that Biden may not completely embrace the national drive launched by Obama (and embraced by Harris) to make cannabis more legally and freely available. It appears that someone in the White House making these decisions understands the lingering effects of the heavy use of illegal drugs. Perhaps Biden doesn’t want people around him who followed the example of his son Hunter.

The China Virus Deception Campaign
By Cliff Kincaid – March 25, 2021
China Joe Biden calls Russian President Putin a killer but can’t bring himself to say the same thing about China President Xi, who is in charge of a controversial biological warfare lab in Wuhan that has been linked to 2.75 million dead.
“He’s a smart, smart guy,” Biden said at his news conference. “We’re not looking for confrontation,” he added.
During the history of the world, at critical turning points, there have been massive deception operations. Think about the Trojan Horse. Or consider how D-Day was designed to convince the Nazis that the main Allied landings would be in the Pas-de-Calais and not in Normandy. The latest and most successful deception operation is the China virus campaign. We are the victims and can’t even call it the China virus.
On the other hand, we can call the variants by their country names, such as the South African variant, the British variant, and the Brazilian variant.
Simply stated, the Communist Chinese and their supporters (“the patriotic united front”) want people to think their government had nothing to do with the release of this virus. It was just an accident, they say, that it happened in Wuhan, a center of China’s declared biowarfare/biodefence capacity. They have even blamed American troops for the disaster.
President Trump understood from the start that the China virus was a national security threat.
As the world attempts to recover from the China virus, the communists are committing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang. They are in the same position as Hitler when he thought he was on the road to world domination. The world didn’t take him seriously, as he began mass extermination campaigns.
Almost exactly a year ago, in my column, “A Frankenstein Monster Devouring the World,” I noted the curious timing of the virus, saying, “President Trump was moving in the direction of America-first policies before the Chinese unleashed their virus on the world.”
In that column I examined Chinese work in the area of scientific and genetic experiments, including biowarfare. They seem to be undertaking all of the controversial experiments the Nazis were doing in the name of the “Fatherland,” The Chinese, in their “Constitution of the People’s Republic of China,” call it the “Motherland.”
Aware of the dangers and understanding things about the disease that only he, as president, would know, Trump launched Operation Warp Speed to develop vaccines. He could not, of course, declare war on China. We were not prepared for that and he had the immediate task of protecting our people from this bioweapon.
Before going out of office, the Trump Administration noted that Operation Warp Speed was “an unprecedented drive to develop and make available an effective vaccine by January 2021” and that Pfizer and Moderna developed two vaccines in just nine months, five times faster than the fastest prior vaccine development in American history.
This amazing success demonstrated how, when government bureaucracies are cut down to size and regulations reduced, the private sector can act quickly.
Trump did what he had to do – tap America’s scientific expertise in a partnership to save lives. He had no other alternative.
Little did he know that much of the opposition would come from some of his own supporters and that they would turn on him.
One person wrote to me, saying, “We're dealing with a MONSTER VACCINE, not a monster virus.” The Chinese Communists unleashed a killer on the world and yet these people are saying they fear Trump’s Operation Warp Speed more than the China virus attack on our people.
Some people write to me with even more outlandish assertions, insisting that Trump is guilty of genocide for authorizing new vaccines and ushering in the end times.
Journalist Alex Berenson, a critic of some government policies during Covid-19, such as masks and lockdowns, has concluded after analyzing the data that the theory behind the mRNA vaccines has merit and that the vaccines “do work.” Many questions remain, he says, but “the mRNA hypothesis has now been shown to work in the most dramatic possible way.”
He adds this: “Vaccine advocates see a scientific leap forward that work not just against the coronavirus but influenza, other viruses, and even cancer.”
While I am not a professional vaccine advocate and have had doubts about them in the past, I have come to the same conclusion as Berenson.
Conservatives are being told, however, that Trump is guilty of genocide. One conservative columnist claimed the very successful Pfizer vaccine program in Israel amounted to a “holocaust” against the Jews. The reverse is true. Indeed, right-wing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had hoped that the results from what was described as “a world-beating Covid vaccination campaign” would help him in the elections there. The nation had fully vaccinated 50.2% of its population.
China Joe Biden has a different approach than Trump, while exploiting Operation Warp speed to his political advantage. His top people recently met with Chinese Communist officials and failed to raise the issue of the China virus at all. Is this because Biden fears the Chinese or that his people are being paid off by them?
In terms of sheer numbers of people killed, the China virus is an instrument of mass murder. Citing official numbers, the anti-communist Epoch Times on Wednesday provided the latest U.S. casualties:
The Epoch Times has no doubt this is a China virus but goes further, calling it the “CCP Virus,” referring to Chinese Communist Party. The publication declares, “The name holds the CCP accountable for its wanton disregard of human life and consequent spawning of a pandemic that has put untold numbers in countries around the world at risk, while creating widespread fear and devastating the economies of nations trying to cope with this disease.”
Nevertheless, Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler blamed the Atlanta shootings on people referring to the Chinese origin of the China virus. We are told “anti-Asian racism” and not China’s biological warfare campaign is the real problem. Racism is always an evil, but it’s the racism of the Chinese regime, as they campaign to expand the “Motherland,” that is also of utmost concern. Many more lives are being lost because of the murderous mind-set of the Chinese communists. They have made it clear, after taking Hong Kong, the next target is Taiwan. They say so in their party constitution.
While private biotech companies have come to our assistance, as a result of directives from Trump through Operation Warp Speed, there are many serious questions remaining abut how government agencies, including the Pentagon, were collaborating with the Chinese.
One of my Freedom of Information Requests (FOIA) at one of the agencies has been stalled. But the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) filed also filed a FOIA with the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectiousness Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health seeking all documents in its possession and that of Director Anthony S. Fauci regarding grants to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan.
Going further, Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for National Institutes of Health (NIH) records of communications, contracts and agreements with the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
There are also honest liberals who have been looking at it.
For example, the U.S. Right to Know organization has been examining “how, where and why the virus first infected humans, as well as information about leaks and other mishaps at biosafety labs and the risks of gain-of-function research, which aims to increase the lethality or infectivity of potential pandemic pathogens.” The group has already found evidence that some of the people in U.S. government-funded organizations have been trying to divert attention away from a laboratory origin of the virus because they had been working with Chinese scientists at the Wuhan lab.
Independent left-wing journalist Sam Husseini has written an article about how various “experts” have been “remarkably evasive” about the source of the disease and whether it came from a lab.
But with so many conservatives questioning the life-saving vaccines, and Democratic Party “progressives” refusing to confront China over the origin of the virus, we are still at the mercy of this deadly killer. The Chinese are sitting on top of the world and laughing as they destroy us.
Trump’s Fair-Weather Friends
By Cliff Kincaid – March 23, 2021
I have discovered to my chagrin that some of former President Trump’s most vociferous critics were one-time supporters of his policies. These are the people who reject his signature achievement, Operation Warp Speed, producing anti-China virus vaccines in record time. It’s the one achievement that China Joe Biden won’t dismantle and in fact wants to exploit for his own political benefit.
By contrast to the informed consent form for the vaccines, I didn’t have to sign anything from China before the communists unleashed their virus on the world. They didn’t ask for my permission. They were experimenting, in my view, with viruses in a lab under military control. When it got out, deliberately or accidentally, they blamed the United States as part of a communist disinformation campaign.
I hate the Chinese communist regime and what it represents. What they did to our people was an act of war. I thank President Trump for confronting the Chinese regime and launching Operation Warp Speed to counter the effects of the virus. He should still be in office.
Whatever you decide, remember that it’s not just your life that’s at stake. Family and friends could get the disease from you.
In deciding what to do, take note of the fact that conservative governors such as Ron DeSantis in Florida are promoting the vaccines. Conservative governments around the globe are promoting them, too.
Since I came out in favor of taking the vaccines, many former Trump supporters have attacked me. I depended on what Trump experienced and has said. But I also analyzed the arguments for and against the vaccines. I interviewed on America’s Survival TV several critics. I made my decision after reading the material that was provided to me in advance and which I had to sign. I fear the virus more than the vaccine.
What the critics of Trump don’t focus on is the nature of the virus, except to say they doubt this or that. Some claim the China virus is a total hoax or fraud. Some think it’s like the common cold or flu. I suspect they don’t know people who have gotten the disease, one of whom is Trump. One person I know who got it was in the hospital for months. He barely survived. His doctors said the virus is unique, unlike anything previously known, because it attacks vulnerable parts of the body. It attacks the body at the body’s weakest link. It looks like the flu in some respects but is much more insidious.
These former Trump supporters reject his experience, in coming down with the disease, and his declaration that the vaccine is safe and effective. He was exposed to many of America’s top doctors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. But that doesn’t matter to them.
Some current and former Trump supporters don’t like Fauci and have other “experts.” That’s their right to seek opinions elsewhere. I have done so as well. I don’t trust Fauci. Neither does Senator Rand Paul, a medical doctor. He rejects Fauci’s advice on masks but accepts the need for the vaccines.
If people don’t accept the vaccines, it means they are also dismissive of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and his efforts to control the disease by getting the population quickly vaccinated. This is the governor said to be “Trump’s heir” to the White House. And he is completely on board with “Operation Warp Speed” and has accelerated his plan for getting Florida residents vaccinated.
The GOP Doctors Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives is vigorously promoting the vaccines. They also note, “Despite calls for national unity and bipartisanship, President Joe Biden and his top aides have declined to give the Trump administration credit on the nation's COVID-19 vaccine rollout while relying heavily on a system established by their predecessors.”
Operation Warp Speed was a great success, one that will cement Trump’s importance and significance in American history. Yet, some of his former supporters don’t want to take the vaccine, despite his assurances of safety and effectiveness. I’ve heard from some of them. On the issue of vaccines, in contrast to what Trump did for the country in many other areas, they are suddenly anti-Trumpers. What a shame.
What I have experienced, in terms of taking a stand for the vaccine, reveals a group of people who think they know far more than Trump or anybody else who has gotten the disease. They think they are doing good by distributing information from dubious sources, This is a sad tendency that exists today because of so many different sources of information on the Internet (despite Big Tech’s arbitrary and stupid censorship efforts). People find some person saying something controversial and get scared, coming to the conclusion that the vaccine is too risky and more dangerous than getting sick from the virus. They rely on others with questionable credentials. Some are selling “natural” cures or supplements.
Decades earlier, some so-called medical experts were claiming that HIV/AIDS was a fiction and that, in case it was real, it was manufactured in a U.S. military lab. That was pure communist disinformation picked up by people like Dan Rather and Barack Hussein Obama’s pastor Jeremiah Wright. Then, the Soviets were spreading the disinformation to take our attention away from communist biological experiments.
It doesn’t help that our intelligence agencies have been consistently duped by our enemies. The FBI falsely blamed a series of American scientists for the post-9/11 anthrax attacks. The anthrax was made in a lab but it was stolen by al Qaeda operatives with connections to those labs. Our FBI, at this late date, has still not gotten to the bottom of that scandal.
In regard to the China virus, some people focus on the fine print of possible side effects from the vaccine. They emphasize its experimental nature. All of that is true.
I’m scared, too, except that I fear the virus more than the vaccine. I have talked to victims of the disease and will not take a chance of avoiding it through the use of alternative treatments or vitamins. But you are welcome to take your chances. You have a right to consider Fauci a bigger enemy than the Chinese regime.
In fact, we know a lot about the vaccine but little about the virus. And that’s by design by China.
The communists have covered up this disaster for the world from the beginning. As Trump quickly realized, the way out of this mess was a vaccine. He had no other choice. He had to act, and he did.
There are possible risks but as we saw on Tuesday, when problems with the trials involving the AstraZeneca vaccine were detected, it appears there is a series of checks and balances in place.
When you examine the Trump Administration’s list of accomplishments, you find many in domestic and foreign affairs being undone by Biden/Harris.
But one achievement stands out: “Brought the full power of American medicine and government to produce a safe and effective vaccine in record time.” Millions of doses were quickly made available. Biden won’t unravel this achievement because he is trying to take advantage of it and take credit for it.
It’s a sad commentary that Trump’s greatest achievement is now being doubted or dismissed by people who once claimed to be his biggest supporters. They are playing into the hands of Trump’s mortal enemy – Communist China. They could lose their lives because of misguided opposition to life-saving vaccines.

Fear the Virus or the Vaccine?
By Cliff Kincaid – March 22, 2021
I’m astounded by the number of die-hard Trump supporters who reject the former president’s advice on vaccines. Trump told Maria Bartiromo, “I would recommend it, and I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it, and I lot of those people voted for me frankly. But again, we have our freedoms and we have to live by that and I agree with that also. But it’s a great vaccine, and it is a safe vaccine and it is something that works.”
The former president does not believe the China virus is a hoax or a fraud. He knows it’s real because he got it. He and his wife also got the vaccine.
The question for many is what they fear most. Some don’t trust Fauci, Gates, or Big Pharma. But others fear the virus more. Count me among the latter. I don’t necessarily trust the medical or scientific establishments but I also don’t trust the Chinese Communist Party and its military establishment. I believe they tried to poison the world, for the purposes of defeating Trump and destroying the economies of the West.
I do trust the first-person accounts of people, like Trump, who have gotten the Covid-19 disease. Clearly, this isn’t an ordinary flu.
If you fear the disease and choose the vaccine, there are possible side effects. On the other hand, if you fear the vaccine and don’t take it, there are possible side effects, too.
If you get the disease, convinced the deaths have been inflated and that it’s comparable to the common cold, be prepared for whatever happens next. Be prepared for the possibility that before you get sick or die you could spread the disease to your family and friends.
Those who say the vaccine isn’t a real vaccine are missing the point. As Trump says, it “works” like a vaccine. However, it is experimental and authorized for emergency purposes. There is a risk in taking it. You have to sign several pages of warnings before you get the shot. I did so.
As the founder of a group once called the Committee to Protect Medical Freedom, I have always been skeptical of some vaccine claims. Vaccines have been taken off the market because of their dangerous side effects. Some injure and kill people. Some are made from controversial ingredients, including aborted baby tissue. I held a national news conference years ago to oppose a mandatory HIV/AIDS vaccine. I have posted several videos about vaccine dangers and continue to be skeptical of government policy dictating that every child get 69 doses of 16 vaccines, some with controversial chemical ingredients.
There is a reason why there is a federal National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to compensate victims of vaccines. Big Government is protecting Big Business from liability for their products. That being said, some vaccines are absolutely necessary for human health in general.
What is fascinating in this case is the attitude of Trump, who said during the 2016 campaign that he would not automatically reject the notion that vaccines were linked to rising rates of autism. Trump said that he was “totally in favor of vaccines” but favored “smaller doses over a longer period of time.” Dr. Ben Carson agreed, saying, “It is true that we are probably giving way too many in too short a period of time. And a lot of pediatricians now recognize that, and, I think, are cutting down on the number and the proximity in which those are done, and I think that’s appropriate.”
The unique circumstances of the China virus include that it came from a country run by a murderous dictatorship during an American election year. The timing is important. There’s no doubt the Democrats used the virus as an opportunity to do what the Chinese wanted to do – arrange the election in such a way to depose Trump. The former president, with access to classified information, clearly understood what was going on and decided that “Operation Warp Speed” was the only way out. He was also consistently warning about Democratic Party efforts to fix the election against him
Many religious leaders typically opposed to using vaccines based on fetal cells have changed their minds in this case. I think the reason is they genuinely fear the virus more than the vaccine. The virus is the greater danger to human health in the long run. They hold China responsible but don’t want to do so in a public manner.
Trump is not alone. The conservative government of Brazil doesn’t think the virus is a hoax. It wants to import vaccines from America. The conservative government of Poland is also promoting acceptance of the vaccine.
If you think Chinese dictator Xi Jinping’s military was just experimenting with a variation of the flu in that Wuhan lab, you have a right to believe that. But don’t count me among those who give the regime the benefit of the doubt. And there really isn’t any doubt left. The only serious question is whether it leaked out of a lab by accident or was released on purpose. The effect is still the same. What’s debatable is the nature of the virus and why the effects vary widely, such as canceling out the sense of smell and taste, and why it creates so many variants.
By any objective measure, the China virus is more deadly than the ordinary flu. But even if the death rates do slow down, the question about the China virus from the beginning has been how dangerous and lethal it could become. Nobody knew, except perhaps the Chinese, and they weren’t saying.
The claim that the virus is killing people who would die anyway from other causes is morally objectionable and contemptible.
None of this justifies the draconian lockdowns of most of the American population. On the other hand, what’s happening in America is not “fascism,” as left-wing feminist Naomi Wolf claimed during an appearance on Russia state-funded TV. (She is one of several left-wing guests who have recently been appearing on Tucker Carlson’s Fox show as well). This is old-fashioned Marxism and America is now at the mercy of a one-party Marxist state, with the major means of communication under the effective control of that regime and covering for China.
That’s essentially what federal Judge Laurence Silberman was saying in a dissent in a defamation case, in which he referred to the “ideological consolidation of the press” in America. He added that “ideological homogeneity in the media -- or in the channels of information distribution -- risks repressing certain ideas from the public consciousness just as surely as if access were restricted by the government.” He named major media as well as Silicon Valley.
What we have seen in this regard in the China virus case is a willingness by these organs to ignore the role of the Communist Chinese regime in creating or letting loose this pandemic on the world. That’s the key point many conservatives are missing.
The latest example is coverage of the mass shooting in Atlanta involving some Asian women working at a spa providing massages. It had nothing to do with their Asian heritage and more to do with the killer’s sex addiction. Yet, Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler blamed the attacks on “political leaders who have demonized China.” This is from the Marxist playbook. Such lunacy gets attention from state media in the U.S. that want to get back to business as usual with the regime.
At the recent meeting with Chinese communist leaders, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the U.S. has “deep concerns with actions by China, including in Xinjiang [an area of Uyghur unrest], Hong Kong, Taiwan, cyber-attacks on the United States, and economic coercion toward our allies. Each of these actions threaten the rules-based order that maintains global stability.”
As if this list wasn’t bad enough, Blinken didn’t say one word about the China virus and the Wuhan lab. (Blinken accepted Chinese money when he ran the “Biden Center” at the University of Pennsylvania.)
Take the vaccine or not and then accept the consequences. But don’t lose sight of the fact that the fingerprints of the Communist regime are all over this virus and the corpses around the world that are piling up because of it.

Pro-Pothead “Climate Warrior” Confirmed as Interior Secretary
By Cliff Kincaid - March 20, 2021
In a major blow to the legendary “pale-faced” settlers who conquered America, “indigenous Congresswoman” Deb Haaland has been confirmed as Secretary of the Interior. Writers for Politico hailed her confirmation, which came with some Republican votes, as a rebuke to “white settlers” accommodated by a government that put Indians into reservations decades ago. Haaland’s unique positions include wanting to use marijuana to fund schools.
In contrast to Senator Elizabeth Warren, Haaland is a real Indian, a member of the federally recognized tribe, the Laguna Pueblo, and claims income from casino interests designed to lure people to gamble their life savings away on tribal lands. Like alcoholism, a major problem on tribal lands, gambling is an addiction that destroy lives and families.
As disclosed by John Solomon of “Just the News,” Haaland suddenly declared, on one of her financial disclosure forms, that she had $16,000 in “salary” from the San Felipe Casino, a gambling outlet near Santa Fe run by the San Felipe Pueblo that changed its name to Black Mesa Casino.
Now determined to shut down oil and gas energy production on tribal and other federal lands, in the name of “Mother Earth,” Haaland is expected to go full throttle into the future with the same kind of “green energy” projects that failed in Texas during the snow storm, causing at least 57 deaths.
Terminating oil and gas leases on these lands will deny her Indian people revenue in royalties that could help them escape poverty and alcoholism. They will have to depend on gambling interests or perhaps marijuana, now being marketed aggressively on tribal lands.
In 2005, a marijuana addict, Jeff Weise, massacred nine people before finally turning the gun on himself on a remote Indian reservation in Minnesota. “MJ is my gal of choice,” he said, referring to pot.
To make up for the loss of revenue from oil and gas exploration, Haaland supported marijuana legalization as a means “to diversify her state’s economy and help fund public education,” according to a pro-marijuana website.
Haaland had indicated no concern over the fact that some Indians were given experimental Covid-19 vaccines, with cries of “We are not guinea pigs” from the Navajo Nation reservation that occupies parts of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. Indians were targeted under the auspices of the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health.
In an article emphasizing her fashionable “climate warrior politics,” leftist writer Sonali Kolhtkar said, “What makes her [Haaland] a formidable force is that her racial and ethnic background in combination with politically progressive views is antithetical to power and capital,” the latter being a reference to the free-market capitalism that was unleashed by President Trump.
Nevertheless, Republican Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Susan Collins of Maine, Dan Sullivan and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska cast votes in favor of the nomination.
Reporters ignored Haaland’s backing from Judith Le Blanc of the Communist Party, who worked through the Native Organizers Alliance and the NDN Collective to turn out voters for Biden-Harris. “We took our protests into the ballot box,” said Le Blanc. “We mobilized a historic turnout of the Native vote.”
In return, they got the Haaland nomination, a tool of extremist elements intent on dismantling America’s industrial base.
LeBlanc is so high up in the Communist Party, which is now pro-China rather than pro-Soviet, that she is featured in the book, Let Them Tremble: Biographical Interventions Marking 100 Years of the Communist Party, USA.
Using the China virus as an excuse, Haaland was so extreme that she had proposed freedom from prison for Leonard Peltier, an American Indian activist who was convicted of the execution-style murders of FBI Special Agents Jack Coler and Ronald Williams. Haaland called him an “indigenous rights activist.”
In regard to her casino income, Haaland had a series of tax problems that would have landed an ordinary person in an IRS audit. As a member of Congress from New Mexico, in need of scrutiny from the House Ethics Committee, she filed several amendments trying to clarify her sources of income.
But the tax problems, including the initial failure to report income from a casino, were covered-up by the major media, with Politico declaring, “Haaland's rise from poverty to Congress and now to President Joe Biden's cabinet ushers in a new chapter for the agency that once sought to extinguish the cultural identity of Native American who were driven onto reservations to open up vast areas of the country for settlers.”
But the printed version of the article had a different formulation, saying Native Americans “were driven onto reservations to open up vast areas of the country for white settlers.”
It is fashionable to believe that the European-Americans who settled in the United States encountered back-to-nature natives. But our ancestors who wrote the Declaration of Independence referred to “the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction, of all ages, sexes and conditions.”
Our founders understood that some of these “savages” were ruthless killers fighting for the British against the American revolutionaries.
Indians who were hostile to the revolution raided white settlements, murdering men, women, and children. The barbaric practice of scalping was so common by the Indians that some forts had people who specialized in treating scalped heads. One of the scalping treatments was called “pegging.”
While it is fashionable to attack “white settlers,” Haaland’s backing from communists, casinos, and the marijuana industry was a taboo topic.
However, it is a story uncovered by analyst Trevor Loudon, who discussed it with me on an edition of America’s Survival TV. Bluntly speaking, Loudon says Haaland’s nomination “was completely orchestrated by the Communist Party of the United States.”
Politico wasn’t alone in ignoring all of this. Consider these headlines:
For the media, her backing by communist groups serving foreign interests was of no significance. Instead, her identity is what counts. She is among the “indigenous people” who have to be considered innocent victims of those horrible white people.
The Politico story drips of innuendo that Republicans who dared to question her policies were racist against a woman of color.
This is one reason why Republican Senators fold under the pressure. They don’t like to be called racists. That’s worse than being called McCarthyites.

By Art Requena*
As Americans confront the blatant illegitimacy and destructiveness of the current rogue government, they are beginning to awaken to how far government has strayed over the years from our most cherished precepts of individual rights. Patriots now endeavor a way out of this morass to a government based on our founding principles as expressed in the US Constitution.
Several proposals have come forth purportedly to restore us to a Constitutional republic. Unfortunately, some of these proposals are quite dangerous to the integrity of the Constitution.
One such proposal, allegedly for reform, is an Article V convention of states, which by its very nature, is a constitutional convention. It is being promoted as a way the states get to put forth specific amendments that would restrain the government. The argument is that it is narrow in its purview and, therefore, safe from a runaway convention, which could give us a totally different document. Nothing is further from the truth. There are no safeguards provided in Article V to constrain the convention from amending the Constitution beyond recognition, or from completely replacing it. The false assurances that the convention would consist of state delegates sent to propose specific amendments from the state legislatures is contradictory to both Article V and Article 1, Section 8, clause 18. The latter gives the Congress the power to make all laws that are necessary and proper to organize and run the convention. The delegates are most likely to be chosen by Congress. (Congressional Research Services April 11, 2014). It is not within the states’ powers to decide on delegate numbers or members.
Our original constitution of 1776 under the Articles of Confederation was replaced by an entirely different constitution and system of government when the delegates ignored the instructions of the Continental Congress, which had resolved to hold a convention “for the sole and express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation.” Both the Continental Congress and the several states specifically and expressively charged the delegates to the convention with solely proposing amendments. However, a small and influential group of men chose to ignore their specific and limited authority, and on the basis of the Declaration of Independence’s recognition of the people’s right to throw off one form of government for another, seized the opportunity to craft an entirely new constitution and its resulting system of government.
Fortunately, these were men of wisdom, good intentions, and of moral character. They gave us our Constitution, which is now under attack by Communist and Globalist entities under the rubric of Article V reform. There is no reasonable basis to think that a runaway convention would not happen again, given the vast sums of money and organizational skills of those opposed to America’s liberty.
Thus, Article V is being promoted in the media as a way to set right the wrongs of government. Unfortunately, the perilousness of a constitutional convention, or whatever name its supporters disguise it with, is being misrepresented by a multimillion-dollar funded organization, “The Convention of States Project,” as well as some individuals whom, undeservedly, hold the trust of many conservatives.
The idea of a constitutional convention during this especially dangerous time when the population is ideologically split, would give radical leftists, communists, and anti-constitutional groups, including the current globalist-government establishment, too great an opportunity to cause havoc to our Constitution. Soros-funded groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter would most likely threaten and cower delegates opposed to their radical agenda. These communist organizations could hold cities hostage to their demands, causing mayors, city councils, and governors to add further pressure on the delegates to give in to the Globalist-Marxist demands.
The Convention of States Project’s whole premise falls when common sense is applied. For logic argues that since the Constitution and its Bill of Rights have not been adhered to, new amendments will not be any more effective in restraining government encroachment.
As constitutional scholar, Joanna Martin, clearly notes, the restraints necessary to reforming our system are already in our present Constitution. (See publiushuldah.com)
America is on the precipice of a communist hell. Already law enforcement is morphing into something evil, something reminiscent of Stalin’s iron hand. The insanity of the moment is meant to confuse, discourage, and to defeat the American people.
However, the Constitution, while shredded and ignored, still provides a beacon upon which patriots can focus and rebuild. Let us do all in our power to preserve this miraculous document and its system of government.

Leftist Greenwald Auditions for Fox News Gig
By Cliff Kincaid - March 18, 2021
Tucker Carlson’s Fox show is always worth watching but he is increasingly dependent on a left-winger, Glenn Greenwald, for commentaries. Fox News now has an entire article devoted to Greenwald’s critique of liberal journalists on matters like the Hunter Biden affair. It’s good Greenwald parts ways with the official Democratic Party line and sees the light on these issues. But that doesn’t erase his history of service to anti-American causes. Viewers of Fox deserve the truth.
Greenwald once accepted an award named after Soviet agent I.F. “Izzy” Stone, saying Stone “pioneered what modern journalism ought to be."
Stone, the uncle of Weather Underground communist terrorist Kathy Boudin, continues to be a hero to the left. The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard offers an annual “I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence.”
Greenwald appears in the film, “All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Spirit of I.F. Stone,” along with left-wing luminaries such as Michael Moore and Noam Chomsky. The Communist People’s World praised the film, referring to the “great I.F. Stone.”
Accuracy in Media founder Reed Irvine noted that “Stone's subservience to the Stalinist line was shown in his 1952 book The Hidden History of the Korean War, which parroted the communist claim that South Korea started the war by invading the North.” Stone was an ardent Stalinist until Khrushchev denounced Stalin in 1956.
When I was with Accuracy in Media and asked Greenwald for comment on his “Izzy Award,” in light of Stone’s well-documented service on behalf of the old Soviet Union, Greenwald exploded, saying in part:
For the record, Commentary had published excellent articles about Stone’s service to the Soviet Union. One article by John Haynes and Harvey Klehr was titled, “I.F. Stone, Soviet Agent—Case Closed.”
As I noted at the time, in several articles for AIM, the identification of Stone as a Soviet agent is based on information in the Venona World War II-era Soviet spy cables that a Soviet intelligence officer named Vladimir Pravdin had recruited I.F. Stone. In addition, Accuracy in Media received Stone’s FBI file, which said that two sources had actually named him as a member of the Communist Party. One of them was Louis Budenz, former editor of The Daily Worker, who later became an active anti-communist.
Later, Greenwald would assist CIA/NSA defector Edward Snowden in spilling state secrets to the Chinese and the Russians. Snowden is currently being guarded in Moscow by the FSB, the security service of the Vladimir Putin regime. I wrote about all of this in my book, Blood on His Hands: The True Story of Edward Snowden.
Lt. Gen Ion Mihai Pacepa, the highest-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence official ever to defect to the West, called the Snowden affair “a well-prepared Russian intelligence operation” against the United States and concluded that Snowden was “an agent of the Russian foreign intelligence service.”
While he does have some libertarian instincts, Greenwald has been strongly allied with the anti-American far-left, In a 2011 article in the socialist publication In These Times, Greenwald said “the only thing that can truly strengthen America’s national security is a weakening of America.” The article was adapted from a Greenwald talk given at the Socialism 2011 conference.
A regular speaker at socialist conferences, he declared at one such event that al-Qaeda’s 9/11 terrorist attacks on America were “very minimal in scope compared to the level of deaths that the United States has been bringing to the world for decades -- from Vietnam to illegal wars in Central America…”
During an appearance before the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim Brotherhood front, Greenwald praised the group for its “patriotic work.” He described Anwar al-Awlaki, the American al-Qaeda leader killed in a drone strike, as “someone who the U.S. government hates because he speaks effectively to the Muslim world about the violence that the United States commits regionally, and the responsibility of Muslims to stand up to that violence.”
Defending WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, then on the run from rape allegations and living in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, Greenwald stated on the Moscow-funded channel Russia Today (RT) that Assange’s work for the pro-Putin network was perfectly fine and proper. The Russians had given Assange a TV show on RT, where he interviewed such figures as Hezbollah terrorist leader Hasan Nasrallah, U.S. Marxist professor Noam Chomsky and Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa.
None of this seems to matter now, as Greenwald has apparently cut ties to the billionaire backer of his publication The Intercept and went out on his own, finding a place on Fox programs hosted by Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham. He seems to be ingratiating himself with the channel, perhaps looking for a job.
His extreme left-wing background is now forgotten, to the point where The Daily Caller, which was founded by Tucker Carlson once ran a story that included an image of Greenwald sitting at a desk with his “Izzy Award” displayed in back of him. Viewers probably didn’t know what it represented.
It’s good he has apparently deserted the left. But let him disavow I.F. Stone and his pro-Soviet activities. Let him tell the truth about Snowden. Then we can take his criticism of the left more seriously.

Secretary Lloyd Austin
U.S. Secretary of Defense
1000 Defense Pentagon
Washington, D.C. 20301-1000
The U.S military's subordination to civilian governance, including to the American people for whom and by whom the government is selected, is at the core of our Republic and its institutions. That structure is woven into our military at every level, including Department of Defense (DOD) Directive 1344.10, which broadly forbids military service members in from engaging in their official capacities in any activities that associate the DOD with any partisan political campaign or elections, candidate, cause, or issue.
Another long-standing norm aimed at preserving civilian governance has involved restrictions and prohibitions against recent servicemembers serving in certain civilian capacities, including the position of Secretary of Defense. The United States Senate granted its advice and consent for you to become Secretary despite your recent military service, and I voted for you as well, on the basis of your stated commitments to preserving that governance.
I am deeply troubled that the commitments you made, and the military's broader obligation to avoid political endorsements and controversy, are being systematically undermined for the sake of leftwing ideology and political expediency. The last week has witnessed the Pentagon mobilize systematic, public attacks against television host Tucker Carlson that in substance, tone, and political resonance are inexplicably inappropriate.
The campaign was launched in response to criticisms by Carlson that linked gender-based reforms in the military, which are being justified using the language of social justice, with widely-recognized vulnerabilities and erosions in the military's warfighting capabilities, including and especially in the context of Great Power competition. Whatever one thinks of the merits of the argument - and I believe there is much to be said against the use of the military for social experimentation, including for those reasons - those are broadly-held concerns that have been the fodder of political controversy and debate for decades.
Instead of allowing the debate to take its course in public among American citizens and their elected leaders, military officials over the last week have repeatedly launched attacks on Carlson, including through official DOD platforms and accounts and while in uniform. The campaign has alternated between being ostentatiously childish and simply outrageous.
Multiple military leaders have tweeted video of themselves, while in uniform, as they attack Carlson, including the Command Senior Enlisted Leader of U.S. Space Command, the Sgt. Major of the Army, the Commanding General of the U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence, and the commanding officer of the II Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF) Information Group (IG). Throughout this campaign, military leaders have suggested and insinuated that it is out of bounds for civilians to criticize the military unless they've served.
This spectacle risks politicizing the military after several centuries of efforts to keep military officials out of domestic affairs, undermining civil-military relations by having the military take a side in a contentious cultural dispute, and the perception that military leaders are happily weaponizing the institution against political critics of the sitting administration. This kind of behavior, while perhaps typical in a military-controlled Third World country, is completely unacceptable in the United States of America.
Furthermore, these actions run the risk of creating a culture of contempt for our country's civilian leadership within the enlisted ranks and among junior officers which will be corrosive to the good order and discipline of the military.
At times the campaign has been conducted in a way that is far beneath the dignity of the United States military. The official website of the Defense Department catalogued a statement by Pentagon Press Secretary John F. Kirby under the headline "Press Secretary Smites Fox Host That Dissed Diversity in U.S. Military" and declared that Carlson had issued "insults to the entire U.S. military."
II MEF constitutes a third of the Marine Corps' war fighting capability, and so II MEF IG is the public facing public affairs unit for entirety of the east facing combat force for Marines. The official Twitter account of the II MEF IG posted absurd statements insulting Carlson, and which included criticizing Carlson's age, and then told another private citizen who responded to that attack to "[c]ome back when you've served and been pregnant."
I cannot imagine how any of the above behavior can be explained, and I am deeply concerned about what it portends for the direction that you and President Biden intend to move the military.
I therefore request that the Commandant of the Marine Corps meet with me, in person, to discuss these issues. I also request an official response from the department and implementation of a policy that insulates other units from being similarly mobilized against the speech of American citizens or in the service of left wing political causes.
