Sandra Day O’Connor’s Disgraceful Legacy
By Cliff Kincaid
Fox News calls her a “moderate conservative.” That is a lie. The truth must be told, even though Washington’s elites have gathered to honor her. Her funeral service is taking place at Washington National Cathedral, and pro-abortion President Joe Biden is delivering a eulogy.
Conservative Caucus founder Howard Phillips was a true conservative who predicted that Sandra Day O’Connor, a Reagan nominee, would turn out to be pro-abortion on the court. He noted that she was a pro-abortion member of the Arizona State Senate and a liberal judge on the Arizona Court of Appeals. “She was chosen because of her gender and a desire to attract to the GOP the support of feminists,” he said. Again, Howard stood with principle, and he was correct.
When O’Connor gave a speech declaring that the court would increasingly make its decisions in deference to international law and foreign opinion, Phillips said she had violated her oath of office -- swearing allegiance to the U.S. Constitution -- and that she should be removed from office.
Howard didn’t make excuses for conservatives -- even if it was Ronald Reagan -- when they bowed to liberal pressure.
The process that began with Roe v. Wade in 1973 has left more than 60 million dead. This is a form of slavery that has made unborn babies into the property of others, subject to whims about when and if they live, or die.
“Abraham Lincoln recognized that we could not survive as a free land when some men could decide that others were not fit to be free and should therefore be slaves,” President Ronald Reagan said. “Likewise, we cannot survive as a free nation when some men decide that others are not fit to live and should be abandoned to abortion or infanticide.”
But his nomination of O’Connor undermined those words.
Dr. Paul Kengor notes, “Though O’Connor generally was considered a court ‘moderate,’ she was a decisive swing vote in favor of preserving so-called ‘abortion rights,’ including the outrageous January 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, a judicial abomination with no basis whatsoever in the U.S. Constitution.”
In its Dobbs decision, the Supreme Court did throw the issue back to the states, ruling there is no right to abortion in the Constitution. That was correct. But that does not mean politicians should acquiesce in the decision by states or individuals to permit abortions.
What is needed is a Human Life Amendment to the Constitution, making it crystal clear there is an individual right to life. Anything short of that risks the soul of America and the souls of those who endorse the murder of the unborn.
I was switching channels all day, after so-called “abortion advocates” won in Virginia and Ohio, trying to figure out why some “conservatives” are now saying that Republican politicians must somehow “compromise” and permit the killing of the unborn under some circumstances. Senator Ted Cruz was on Newsmax, arguing for the “state’s rights” approach approved by the Supreme Court. But if an innocent unborn human being is in fact an innocent unborn human being, how can any death sentence be justified?
I can understand abortion in the rare case of self-defense, or when a woman’s life is in danger, but how is it to be rationalized as a matter of convenience to the woman when the woman had a role in making this life possible? A baby is not the property of the mother or anybody else.
If a woman cannot for medical or health reasons carry the baby to term, that is one thing. That is not a deliberate abortion.
Republican Rep. Nancy Mace says we must find a “middle ground” on abortion. But our nation did not find a “middle ground” on slavery. The outcome was supposed to demonstrate that people are not the personal property of other people. I thought this issue was settled with the American Civil War.
In rare cases of rape or incest, the baby is still innocent.
NBC News says that O'Connor regularly attended services at the National Cathedral and served on its governing board. “Grounded in the reconciling love of Jesus Christ,” the institution proclaims, “Washington National Cathedral is a house of prayer for all people, conceived by our founders to serve as a great church for national purposes.”
What national purpose is served by killing the unborn?
Like feminist Ruth Bader Ginsburg, O’Connor was an example to young women, and a very bad example. She led women to believe that they had property rights over the unborn babies within them, and that they alone could decide their fate.
Women should be in the forefront of the motherhood movement, dedicated to the proposition that all lives matter and all lives are created equal.
How to Write Like a Propagandist
By Cliff Kincaid
Bloomberg is back with another ridiculous opinion piece masquerading as a news story, as a “journalist” with an “Evening Briefing” disguised as a “news” dispatch is telling his audience that Trump echoes Hitler and is a would-be dictator. This is what passes for “journalism” these days.
Like you, I have gotten sick and tired of the unrelenting bias, but since they send me their email messages free of charge, I figure I should reciprocate with my own analysis of how media bias these days has become outright propaganda. It is a turn for the worst but a fact of life I encountered when I majored in journalism in college 40 years ago. Back then they called it “advocacy journalism” or “interpretative reporting.”
The journalism business cannot be reformed. It is getting worse by the day.
The good news is that the bias is so overt and propagandistic that people can’t help but notice how corrupt it is.
Here is just one example of the supposed incendiary rhetoric of former President Trump, according to this phony journalist. He says “Trump again used inflammatory, anti-immigrant rhetoric seen as echoing that of the Third Reich, this time at a rally at the University of New Hampshire where he praised modern day authoritarian leaders including Vladimir Putin.”
Instead of Trump sounding like Hitler, Bloomberg is doing so, using the Big Lie technique of the Nazis. It is an amateurish attempt to compare Trump to Hitler, almost laughable. The awkward phrase, “seen as echoing that of the Third Reich,” is based on propaganda from the Democratic Party.
When the article claims “Trump again used inflammatory, anti-immigrant rhetoric seen as echoing that of the Third Reich,” he in fact links to a CBS News story that is based on something said by Biden-Harris campaign spokesperson Ammar Moussa.
This is journalism?
The Democrats are repeating the “Trump is Hitler” mantra, as well as denouncing “MAGA extremists,” to scare people. The Nazis did the same thing about the Jews. In this case, as we shall see, the scare techniques are necessary because Biden is crashing in the polls.
On command, Bloomberg “reporters” repeat these lies ad nauseam. Of course, Trump didn’t praise Putin for his authoritarian rule; he has consistently said that Putin is a killer who has outsmarted Biden and other Western leaders, and that is an obvious fact. Trump’s foreign policy was anti-Putin and anti-China. Biden’s foreign policy has led to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the Hamas invasion of Israel, and more serious Chinese threats against Taiwan.
The Bloomberg piece is yet another lie in a long list, as I documented in the recent column, “The Contant battle Against Constant Lies.”
I am accustomed to the media lying on a constant basis, but the fact that Bloomberg is so bad at lying and so transparent is somewhat surprising. I guess I expected coverage of a higher quality from a “news” organization that is supposed to be objective, at least on the economy.
I wrote this column in the hope that somewhere in the higher echelons of this “journalism” business it will be acknowledged that the extreme slant to their “news” stories has gone too far and that Bloomberg “news” has become a joke.
I guess I’m in a hopeful mood these days.
What explains this desperation on the part of the “journalists” at Bloomberg? One paragraph finally admits a piece of bad news for Biden: “Meanwhile,” he says, “President Joe Biden’s approval rating has hit an all-time low, according to a new Monmouth University poll.” (Click here to view the poll.)
To save Biden, they must lie about Trump, using images of Hitler and dictators.
But there is more. Trump, Bloomberg tells us, is “twice impeached and facing four felony indictments.”
Not a word about the partisan nature of any of this.
The author is identified as “Managing Editor” of Bloomberg Digital, a top dog and a big cheese with 29 years of experience as an “award-winning legal reporter, columnist, freelancer, editor and newsroom manager.”
Seriously? If so, journalism is in worst shape than I ever imagined.
I am returning to my days as a media critic, since the daily dispatches from the Democratic Party operatives at Bloomberg are so full of extreme bias as to make one laugh hysterically. I can’t in good conscience ignore this kind of deception and dishonesty.
I believe this exercise on my part is worthwhile since the columns and stories on this supposed business website may be fooling some people. I hope you are not one.
The Constant Battle Against Constant Lies
By Cliff Kincaid
I was a partner with AIM founder Reed Irvine for several decades and documented through the AIM Report and several books the “misdeeds” of our Big Media establishment. He taught me a lot. Unfortunately, media bias has gotten worse, not better, and even infects such one-time “conservative” outlets as the Drudge Report. It also infects so-called “business” outlets such as Bloomberg, known for fancy charts and graphs about the economy. I get their emails and never cease to be amazed at the lies the various Bloomberg reporters spew out, as if nobody notices or cares. They must think people take them seriously.
Consider this one:
“Republicans in the US House of Representatives voted to formally authorize an impeachment inquiry into Biden without any evidence of wrongdoing. Democrats contend the unprecedented move is being driven by a twice-impeached Donald Trump in an effort to muddy the waters ahead of an election year. The Republican frontrunner, who has threatened to abuse power and retaliate against opponents if he returns to the White House, faces four felony prosecutions, any one of which could land him in prison upon conviction.”
There are so many lies in this paragraph, part of the “Weekend Reading” from Bloomberg, that it’s almost impossible to know where to start.
The authors of these lies were probably educated in the “interpretative” school of journalism, popularized by Marxist Curtis MacDougall, or the Walter Duranty school of journalism, named after the Marxist mole at the New York Times who covered-up Stalin’s crimes against Ukraine.
The idea that the impeachment inquiry suffers from a lack of evidence is perhaps the biggest lie of all, stemming from the apparent inability of these Bloomberg reporters to comprehend the meaning of the “Big Guy” in Hunter Biden’s schemes and Biden’s service to the Chinese and the Russians.
The corruption is evident. Call it bribery or influence peddling. The evidence shows that Hunter used Joe’s name to obtain millions of dollars. The schemes constitute impeachable offenses based on any objective standard.
If it was all so innocent, why the cover-ups, as documented by the whistleblowers and Biden business partners? All of this is now unraveling.
I’m amazed that it has taken the Republicans this long to get moving. Biden’s high crimes and misdemeanors, as defined in the Constitution, include much more than his pandering to China. He is also conducting criminal activities regarding the open border. Even some elected Democrats are blowing the whistle on that.
Leaving aside Hunter's schemes, the open border is itself a basis for impeachment and conviction. Even Senate Republicans are coming to understand this fact.
The “unprecedented” impeachment of Biden is only “unprecedented” because it is the first such inquiry. But that doesn’t make it unprecedented in some sinister way. It only means the Republicans are getting around to something that is already apparent to tens of millions of Americans – Biden is selling out America to our enemies, and that one basis of the impeachment inquiry is the ever-changing lie about his “financial” involvement in Hunter’s schemes.
Getting to the bottom of these lies is, according to Bloomberg, an exercise in “muddying the waters.”
The “twice-impeached” President Trump was not convicted. Trump’s alleged threat to “abuse power” is another lie. He has vowed to use presidential and executive powers, all of them legal under the powers he is given. The alleged “threat” to “retaliate” is a reference to using the same powers and legal tactics against his opponents that they have used against him. That’s justice.
The Bloomberg “reporters” fail to mention the flaws in any of the prosecutions against Trump, some of them brought by a “Special Counsel” trained by the United Nations in extra-legal tactics and who has a dubious record of having been overturned by the Supreme Court in a previous case. This is of course Jack Smith, whose wife did a film beatifying Michelle Obama. She donated to Biden.
Bloomberg doesn’t mention any of that, demonstrating their fealty to the Biden White House. They are not reporters. They are lapdogs for confirmed liars.
In the analysis we have at this point, Biden’s defenders note that no hard-core evidence has been produced so far that Biden personally cashed checks from foreign sources or personally in his own name received foreign money. But this doesn’t mean that he is clean and that impeachment is unwarranted. He didn't have to personally cash a check. The money flowed to the Big Guy through various bank accounts. He has already been implicated in the financial dealings of his son, the front man in the scheme. The evidence is overwhelming and more than justifies the impeachment inquiry resolution.
What’s more, as noted, the open borders alone justify impeachment.
Biden is a confirmed liar. In a 2020 campaign debate, Biden declared he was the victim of Russian disinformation, citing the lies concocted by 51 former intelligence officers to dismiss Hunter’s laptop. The lies are piled on the lies, and these lies had an impact on the election, implicating the Deep State in the “Intelligence Community” in the ultimately successful effort to depose Trump. And then reporters like those at Bloomberg conveniently forget the lies and lie about those trying to get to the bottom of the lies.
On top of those lies, we have Biden hosting a friendly meeting with Chinese Communist dictator Xi on American soil! That alone should justify impeachment, especially after the China virus killed one million Americans and forced the nation to spend $10 trillion to protect and save the American economy from the ravages of the virus.
And yet, according to the Bloomberg reporters, there is no evidence for impeachment. I wonder if they get handsomely paid for their lies.
Wondering why people lie for a living, I remember that, during my studies in college, I came to admire the Christian existentialist philosopher, Soren Kierkegaard, who wrote about the corruption in the Danish State Church. He declared that everyone knew privately that the system was rotten and corrupt but they would not say so publicly. “Just as one says that death has marked a man, so we recognize the symptoms which demand to be attacked. It is a battle against lies,” he said.
This is the situation today. The Big Media lie constantly. We have to say so publicly.
I have previously discussed how I came to believe that the press has become as corrupt as government. I noticed this trend when I went to college and studied a textbook, Interpretative Reporting, by Curtis MacDougall, a communist fellow-traveler who admired Castro and hated anti-communist Senator Joe McCarthy. That’s one reason why I went to work out of college monitoring the media for Accuracy in Media.
I got sick and tired of monitoring and exposing the lies in the media. But sometimes they are so egregious that we still have to take note, especially when they are gushing from a supposed respected outlet like Bloomberg.
China’s Total War Against America
By Cliff Kincaid
On the heels of the passing of Henry Kissinger, who was praised by politicians of both major political parties, the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party has concluded in a report that Kissinger’s pro-China policy was a complete failure. It says, “For a generation, the United States bet that robust economic engagement would lead the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to open its economy and financial markets and in turn to liberalize its political system and abide by the rule of law. Those reforms did not occur.”
Who made that “bet,” on which the survival of the United States depends? It was originally made by Henry Kissinger, the former Secretary of State, and ratified by Republicans and Democrats over the years.
The committee did not, of course, name Kissinger as the main villain in this unfolding debacle. And that is why this report is itself a failure. It is an example of how Washington, D.C. and its political figures are never held accountable for decisions that put the survival of the United Sates in jeopardy.
Instead, in a series of court cases, former President Trump is being held “accountable” for things he clearly did not do. He is being charged by United Nations-trained lawyer Jack Smith with organizing a violent revolution to overthrow the U.S. Government, when he urged peaceful and patriotic protests, and unlawfully possessing White House documents he was entitled to have under the Presidential Records Act.
Incredibly, the government’s response to China’s aggression, in part, is to spend $400 million on a so-called Countering PRC Influence Fund (CPIF) at the presidential level – under China Joe Biden. This is one of the bizarre recommendations of this committee. It is worse than laughable.
Nothing less than the impeachment of China Joe and the jailing of his son could begin to address this problem.
Instead of wasting $400 million on federal bureaucrats who followed Kissinger’s lead and helped get us into this position in the first place, the committee should scoop up all available copies of “Soviet Total War,” a 1956 two-volume set of reports published by the old House Committee on Un-American Activities. The subtitle refers to the “historic mission” of “violence and deceit,” as originally practiced by the Soviets and now the Chinese communists. Volume 1 is 421 pages. Volume 2 is 898 pages.
These documents cover all aspects of the communist war on America that has brought us to this point. The strategy used by Moscow is being copied by Beijing.
I argue in my new report that the prosecution of Trump has everything to do with the fact that the Chinese tried to destroy his presidency with the China virus, they succeeded, and don’t want him to return to the White House.
In the process, of course, more than one million Americans died, and yet China Joe recently had a friendly meeting with the Chinese dictator in San Francisco. An impeachment inquiry isn’t needed to confirm that China Joe is in fact an agent of Xi Jinping.
In terms of the origin of this debacle, the House committee report explains, without naming Kissinger, how the Chinese Communist Party pursued a “campaign of economic aggression” which flowed “directly from the Party’s ideology,” that is, communism. It quotes dictator Xi as having made clear that he believes “capitalism will inevitably perish, and socialism will inevitably triumph.”
What the report itself doesn’t make clear is that Kissinger and his acolytes in the “Intelligence Community” were behind the idea that communism was dead in China and that the communists would turn capitalist. It was a lie. Instead, the communists all along had wanted to use capitalism to build up communism. They accomplished this through corporate deals and U.S.-China cooperation of the kind practiced by Henry Kissinger and the Bidens.
Such “cooperation” was also evident in the activities of one of America’s most prominent medical and scientific organizations, the federally-funded National Institutes of Health (NIH), which was caught funding development of dangerous viruses in China. Francis Collins, an Obama holdover who had a long history of collaborating with the communist Chinese regime, presided over this “experiment,” along with Anthony Fauci.
They remain free of corruption charges. They are not being threatened with jail time.
There is a difference in the Biden and Kissinger cases. Kissinger did a lot of his deal-making out in the open, while China Joe used fake email names and Hunter funneled the money, including to the “Big Guy,” through shell companies. But there is much that is similar. Kissinger worked on behalf of China and Russia, and so did China Joe and Hunter. The Bidens also took money from Ukraine.
Now that the House of Representatives has voted to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry, the investigation should examine how Henry Kissinger’s pro-China policy paved the way for this corruption, and whether Kissinger was ever a communist operative, as once claimed by a communist defector.
One problem with the report is that it uses the Chinese term “socialism” instead of communism. This is more than semantics. The report uses the word “communist” only because it is in the official name of the Chinese Communist Party.
This is important because while the committee mentions the “ideology” of the CCP, it never explains what this means.
This leads to a major flaw in the report. Here’s what the executive summary report says:
“Since its accession to the World Trade Organization in 2001, the CCP has pursued a multidecade campaign of economic aggression against the United States and its allies in the name of strategically decoupling the People’s Republic of China (PRC) from the global economy, making the PRC less dependent on the United States in critical sectors, while making the United States more dependent on the PRC. In response, the United States must now chart a new path that puts its national security, economic security, and values at the core of the U.S.-PRC relationship.”
But China didn’t suddenly become communist in 2001. The communists seized power on the Chinese mainland in 1949. It should have been obvious since the communists seized power that they intended to exploit their economic relations with America to achieve their goal of world domination. Kissinger facilitated this process, leading to China’s current advantages over the United States and a possible invasion of Free China on Taiwan.
The problems we are encountering with Russia and China these days could have been avoided if we had taken the communist threat seriously.
The additional tragedy is that some conservatives these days think that Russia has also given up on communism, even as Vladimir Putin wages war on the former Soviet republics and has his sights set on anti-communist Poland. They are dupes in the same way that Kissinger was a dupe, willing or otherwise, of China.
In this context, we can’t forget that Rep. James Comer has produced evidence showing Russian payments to the Bidens. He notes that Elena Baturina, Russia’s wealthiest woman, who was formerly married to the mayor of Moscow, paid Hunter Biden’s company over $3 million in 2014. This was the same year that Russia, under President Obama and Vice-President Biden, first invaded Ukraine.
Yet Baturina, who allegedly dined with then-Vice President Joe Biden and Hunter and others in 2015, has been excluded from the public sanctions list of Russian elites and oligarchs.
Such payments may also help explain why Biden has failed to give Ukraine the weapons it needs to defeat Russia and even encouraged the “minor incursion” into Ukraine in the first place. It is consistent with Biden’s position of publicly supporting Israel after the terrorist attacks but then attacking the government of Israel for its military response.
But the China problem in particular didn’t begin with the Bidens. Kissinger started the Chinese Communists on the road to world domination when he cultivated friendly relations with Mao, the greatest mass murderer in history.
As my report demonstrates, it was Kissinger who did business with corporate clients looking for business in both China and Russia as he pursued what he openly called a “New World Order” after Barack Hussein Obama was elected president in 2008.
Kissinger’s “China Card” for the New World Order
By Cliff Kincaid
The scary story about a Chinese Pearl Harbor-style attack on America’s allies and assets in Asia caught my attention. The 23 million people on the island of Free China on Taiwan are in immediate danger. But the article by Nixon scholar Harry J. Kazianis missed the main point of interest to Americans in the homeland. Would China launch such an attack on America itself and wipe out their most important colony?
The sad conclusion, that the United States has become over time a colony of Communist China, is based in the observation that America was suckered into this predicament with China in a decades-long process begun by President Nixon’s Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
It’s not just a matter of Christmas toys and trinkets imported from China. The Chinese have already stolen us blind in the matter of national security. They stole our advanced nuclear weapons designs, as documented by the 1999 Cox Commission report. What is more, they have been continuing this infiltration of our nuclear labs, in the same way the Soviets did during World War II.
As China Joe’s involvement in Hunter Biden’s schemes come in for additional scrutiny, we must, in fairness, revisit the legacy of Henry Kissinger, who was the subject of published reports in the 1970s that he had a pro-communist record at Harvard and that he had served as a member of a communist intelligence cell in World War II.
My new report, “Before China Joe, There Was Kissinger,” examines this dangerous situation facing America and its allies in the context of Kissinger’s influence peddling. He was much better at it than China Joe and Hunter and was never held accountable.
Kissinger’s Influence Peddling
Kissinger did business through his own firm for secret corporate clients seeking deals in China, Russia, and other countries. Isaac Stone Fish, founder and CEO of consulting firm Strategy Risks, wrote the book, America Second: How America's Elites Are Making China Stronger. He concluded that Kissinger was “an agent of Chinese influence, and, for the last forty years of his life, a businessman masquerading as a diplomat.”
After his passing, Kissinger has been praised by Republicans and Democrats as a great strategist and statesman but he, like Hunter Biden, engaged in influence peddling. To be sure, Hunter’s case is different. Hunter was a drug addict and sex pervert who didn’t pay his taxes on the business deals, according to the new indictment on tax evasion charges. He also violated gun laws, according to the other indictment of the president’s son.
He funneled some of the proceeds to the “Big Guy,” his father and current President China Joe, and that makes it extremely relevant to the forthcoming impeachment inquiry to be launched by House Speaker Mike Johnson.
The House has an obligation to make the case that China Joe has been functioning as an agent of influence for China, Russia, and other nations funneling cash to Hunter.
Yet the Republican-controlled House is threatening to impeach China Joe while many top GOP officials are still praising Kissinger and his legacy. My report raises the question: How can Republicans impeach “China Joe” Biden for taking money from China, Russia, and other countries when “Republican” Henry Kissinger got the money flowing in the first place?
The ”Opening” to China
The roots of the China problem lie with Kissinger’s “opening” to the genocidal Chinese communist dictatorship, in the same way Neville Chamberlain’s “Peace in our time” overturn to Hitlers’ Germany paved the way for World War II.
Assuming that a Chinese-style Pearl Harbor attack is now possible, all we can do as a nation is maintain a nuclear weapons deterrent to protect the homeland.
Based on his record, we know that former President Donald J. Trump is willing to protect America but China Joe and his Attorney General Merrick Garland are doing everything within their power to destroy his candidacy. Their main weapon is “Special Counsel” Jack Smith, trained by the United Nations to prepare bogus charges before a kangaroo court.
Destroying Trump is China’s agenda. Indeed, one can argue that it is one reason they launched COVID, costing the lives of one million Americans. Trump launched trade tariffs on Chinese goods and began the process of decoupling the American economy from the communists.
But there is more on the table ready to be stolen or compromised because of influence peddling by American officials.
The Trump White House document, “Trump on China: Putting America First,” says the Chinese Communist Party “has set its sights on controlling 90 percent of the world’s most advanced industries, including robotics, biotechnology, and artificial intelligence. To win the commanding heights of the 21st century economy, Beijing has directed its bureaucrats and businesses to obtain American intellectual property -- the foundation of our economic leadership -- by any means necessary.”
Kazianis, the Nixon scholar, recognizes this, saying, “Now is the time for the Biden administration to take the China military threat seriously and come up with a plan to mitigate it beyond phony rhetoric and buzzwords.”
But he’s whistling Dixie.
Kissinger’s Betrayal of Free China
As House Republicans prepare to impeach China Joe, it’s important that Kazianis and other Nixon supporters and Republicans take Kissinger’s betrayal of Free China on Taiwan more seriously. That occurred when Kissinger began the process of normalizing relations with the Communist dictatorship on the mainland.
As a result of this betrayal, 23 million people with a Democratic form of government face a communist invasion, on top of the wars in Europe and the Middle East. I visited the island in 1984. They want to keep their nation free. But American presidents such as Carter, Clinton, and Bush continued to conduct foreign policy based on Kissinger’s “One China” policy and sold them out, in much the same way that Kissinger’s Vietnam “peace accords” turned Vietnam over to the communists.
In a separate article, Kazianis offers a justification for Kissinger’s betrayal, saying, “Instead of seeking confrontation with China, Nixon and Kissinger sought to play the ‘China Card’ by deploying it against the Soviet Union.”
My new report, “Before China Joe, There Was Kissinger,” explains how the Sino-Soviet split was communist disinformation. Today, as we can easily ascertain, we have ended up with are two enemies, China and Russia, which now openly coordinate their militaries in a “no limits” arrangement. We must uncover the foreign agents of influence within the national security establishment.
How Kissinger Betrayed Nixon
So why did Nixon, an anti-communist who helped expose State Department official and United Nations founder Alger Hiss as a Soviet agent, hire Kissinger in the first place? It was a political move, necessary at the time. Nixon, in retrospect, seemed completely unaware that this Harvard professor had a secret agenda. All that he knew was that Kissinger had worked for Nelson Rockefeller, Nixon’ s adversary in the Republican Party, and Nixon thought hiring Kissinger would bring the party together in the 1968 campaign. It worked, as Nixon won the general election in 1968 and was re-elected in 1972.
But when Nixon resigned the presidency, Kissinger survived, continuing as Secretary of State for Nixon successor Gerald Ford.
During the chaos and turmoil of the Watergate scandal, in which the CIA’s secret war on Nixon played a role, Kissinger’s other foreign policy “achievement,” the Vietnam peace accords, fell apart and Vietnam went communist. This produced the Vietnamese boat people, re-education camps, and 2 million dead in the Cambodian genocide.
The failed U.S. military effort to keep South Vietnam free from international communism backed by Red China and the Soviet Union resulted in 58,000 Americans sacrificing and dying in vain, although President Reagan hailed their “noble cause.” The Congress, which was under the control of Democrats after Watergate, also bears responsibility for this disaster. They cut off aid to South Vietnam.
Kissinger’s anti-communist successes, saving Israel in the 1973 war with the Soviet-backed Arab/Muslim states, and the military coup that saved Chile from a communist takeover, can be attributed to the anti-communist Nixon, who took charge of American foreign policy in those specific cases.
The Untold Story
Those who doubt that Kissinger may have been a communist agent all along should look at what conservative journalists such as Gary Allen and Frank Capell wrote about Kissinger in their books and articles in the 1970s. CIA files include a Capell article. They warned us. For his part, Kissinger laughed off the charges at the time they were raised by a communist defector.
If you think such a penetration is impossible, look at what the China Joe Administration is now admitting in the case of former U.S. Ambassador Manuel Rocha, a former National Security Council official. “This action exposes one of the highest-reaching and longest-lasting infiltrations of the United States government by a foreign agent,” said Attorney General Garland, explaining Rocha’s indictment as a foreign agent for Cuba. He passed various background checks by the FBI and the State Department and spied for Cuba for 40 years. He even advised the U.S. military.
Garland doesn’t mention that the president who nominated him to the Supreme Court, Barack Hussein Obama, was under this foreign influence when he normalized relations with Communist Cuba and visited dictator Raul Castro, in much the same way Kissinger exchanged pleasantries with the greatest mass murderer in history, Mao.
Trump reversed that Cuba policy, too.
Among other questionable observations in his work on the topic of China, Nixon scholar Kazianis says that “…Beijing and Washington agreed to cooperate because they both viewed the rise of Soviet power as a bigger threat to their shared mutual interests.”
This was the Kissinger view. But our 2015 book, The Sword of Revolution and the Communist Apocalypse, features an interview with a former U.S. intelligence agency official who explained how the Sino-Soviet split deceived U.S. policymakers and weakened the Free World through what is called Marxist dialectics. His perspective was a dissenting view in the CIA and intelligence community bureaucracy.
Kissinger’s influence was negated by President Ronald Reagan, who broke with his predecessors and authored the “Reagan Doctrine” of overthrowing communist regimes. He said, “They [China and Russia] were allies and the only argument that caused their split was an argument over how best to destroy us.”
Reagan saw through the so-called Sino-Soviet split while Kissinger’s “China Card” gambit fooled many Republicans. His real agenda, which he talked about after Obama was elected as president, was a “New World Order.”
It was Henry Kissinger’s pro-China policy that made possible the scandals involving Hunter and China Joe. Republicans should not forget that fact.
Will Someone Investigate the NSA?
By Cliff Kincaid
The movie Oppenheimer is now for sale via various streaming channels at a cost of $19.99 on Prime Video, a complete waste of money. I am offering for free my 24-page analysis of how this film whitewashes a prominent member of a communist spy ring that stole our atom bomb secrets. My report, which also addresses the NSA’s role in whitewashing J. Robert Oppenheimer, raises a serious matter: who oversees our national security establishment?
My letter to NSA Director General Paul M. Nakasone said the following:
Our new 24-page heavily footnoted report (enclosed) documents how Chinese communists are continuing to infiltrate our nuclear labs, transferring knowledge of weapons of mass destruction to those who want to kill tens of millions of Americans!
Equally outrageous, I recently discovered that the NSA’ s National Cryptologic Museum has whitewashed the infiltration of our nuclear labs during World War II by the Russian communists. The exhibit wants us to believe that Soviet spy Robert Oppenheimer of the Manhattan Project was just a patriotic American!
I visited the NSA’s National Cryptologic Museum on August 9, 2023, confirming that the Venona exhibit [about Soviet spying] had been “rotated out” of the museum and replaced with a “Protecting America’s Secrets” display paying homage to Oppenheimer.
The letter was dated August 24 but I never received a response.
On the anniversary of 9/11, we were forced to consider the sad state of our so-called “intelligence” agencies, unable or unwilling to protect America. Israel is now going through a similar exercise regarding the terrorist attack on October 7.
Much of the conservative commentary emphasizes the political nature of the FBI and the CIA and their determination to keep Donald J. Trump out of the White House and maintain the Obama/Biden Administration in power. But the National Security Agency also bears watching.
The NSA is counting on Congress to reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), ostensibly to collect information about foreign threats.
Matthew G. Olsen, Assistant Attorney General, wrote an op-ed that originally appeared in The Hill on August 16, 2023, arguing for congressional reauthorization of Section 702.
But how is this possible when the NSA refuses to acknowledge the truth about Oppenheimer?
The NSA is following the lead of the Biden Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm. It was Granholm who had announced the Department of Energy had vacated the Atomic Energy Commission’s 1954 decision to withdraw Oppenheimer’s security clearance.
Equally significant, the Daily Wire revealed the NSA has created a glossary of terms that push Critical Race Theory and radical gender ideology.
Rep. Matt Gaetz warned about these Marxist ideologies being “latched to the most exquisite spying and surveillance tools that have ever existed on the planet.”
It appears that the Marxism has been embraced by NSA leadership, which makes the American people who “cling” to anti-communism into the targets.
In addition to the communist lies embraced about the Oppenheimer matter, the FBI itself announced on October 23 that NSA employee Jareh Sebastian Dalke pleaded guilty to six counts of attempting to transmit classified National Defense Information (NDI) to an agent of the Russian Federation (Russia).
The Department of Justice says Dalke faces a maximum penalty of up to life in prison and sentencing is scheduled for April 26, 2024.
While this development is a sign of progress, depending on what happens to the perpetrator, much more needs to be done, including at the FBI, which used Russian disinformation to go after Trump.
Former FBI agent Max Noel says the Bureau used to investigate candidates for federal employment by analyzing Character, Associates, Reputation, and Loyalty to the United States. The first letters in those words make up the acronym CARL.
Noel told me that Barack Hussein Obama could not have been elected president if he had been subjected to the CARL test. He had too many communist connections.
Meanwhile, published reports suggest that Obama’s vice president, Joe Biden, who is now president, is not going to be charged for mishandling classified documents.
Rep. Mike Turner, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, commented that “Biden has been found to be a serial classified document hoarder” and that “Over a 10-year period, he’s been taking classified documents, some of the most sensitive that threaten our national security home, without any protection, and certainly, you know, able to- for others to be able to access them. There needs to be consequences.”
He also noted that Hillary Clinton had “over 100 classified documents at home when she was Secretary of State and Vice President Biden both under Obama at the same time, [they] were taking classified documents home, and certainly had them be vulnerable, with no consequences -- shows the Department of Justice is not pursuing Democrats.”
At the same time, Turner defended Section 702, saying it “allows the collection of [information from] foreigners outside the United States who pose a national security threat to the United States” and that “We have to continue to collect that data and information, it's from which we are able to keep our country secure.”
Turner contradicted himself, saying Section 702 somehow keeps us secure even while top officials under Obama, one of whom is now president, jeopardize our security by hoarding classified documents in unsecure locations.
Before Congress even considers reauthorizing Section 702, hearings should be held into the Oppenheimer matter and subsequent reports that the Communist Chinese have also been infiltrating the labs. All of this is covered in my report, “Hollywood’s Whitewash of a Communist Spy and the Infiltration of America’s Nuclear Labs.”
Reps. Mike Waltz (R-FL) and Jim Banks (R-IN) say in a letter to Nakasone that they also want an explanation for the NSA glossary of Marxist terms and its implications for the intelligence agency’s hiring procedures.
At the same time, in response to Rep. Turner’s comments about the obvious double-standard, the House under new Speaker Mike Johnson should immediately defund the activities of anti-Trump U.N. lawyer Jack Smith, who has indicted former President Trump on bogus charges of mishandling classified documents.
Perhaps defunding the NSA should be the next step.
The Palestinian Removal Act
By Cliff Kincaid
Anybody who thinks a “two-state solution” will solve the Arab/Muslim conflict with Israel is not paying attention. Neither Hamas nor the Palestinian Authority will co-exist with Israel. The only solution is a Palestinian Removal Act, modeled after the Indian Removal Act in the United States, which stopped the Indians from murdering the American settlers and allowed the new nation to develop.
This may sound harsh, but it is sometimes necessary to acknowledge that two peoples cannot exist together and in proximity.
Israel faces genocidal opposition that can only be resolved by relocating the so-called Palestinians back to neighboring Arab/Muslim states.
The Indian Removal Act was a last-ditch effort under President Andrew Jackson to save the American Indians from their own destruction.
President Jackson is supposed to be a villain, as communist agitators tried to take down his statue in Lafayette Park near the White House, calling him a “killer” for removing Indians from areas of conflict in the new America to federal safe zones or havens for their own protection. Jackson offered the Indians federal protection.
As Robert Remini writes in his book on Jackson, “The Trail of Tears was a terrible price to pay for this legislation but, as Jackson predicted, the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Creek, Chocraws, and Seminole tribes are alive today. They were not annihilated like the Yamassee, Mokawks and Pequote, and other eastern tribes.” In his book on Jackson, Sean Wilentz confirms this, writing, “In completing the removal of the Indians to what he considered a safe haven, Jackson may well have spared them the obliteration that had been the fate of many northeastern tribes.”
In other words, the Indians were fighting among themselves, in addition to their wars on the American settlers.
By way of analogy, the “Palestinians” have been fighting among themselves, in addition to their campaign to “liberate” Israel from the Jews. Hence, Hamas controlled Gaza and the Palestinian Authority controls the West Bank.
But removing Hamas from Gaza does not solve the problem, and the Palestinian Authority is hardly a “moderate” alternative. It is the outgrowth of the old Soviet-sponsored Palestine Liberation Organization.
Geert Wilders, leader of the Freedom Party (PVV) in The Netherlands, has suggested the conflict between Palestinians and Israel could be resolved through their relocation to Jordan. “Jordan is Palestine,” he says.
In the past, he has put the matter more diplomatically, saying, “The two-state solution is an internal Israeli matter and I hesitate to interfere. But my personal belief is that there is a two-state solution for the Palestinians. One of those states is called Jordan.”
Wilders, whose Party for Freedom has emerged as the largest party in the Dutch House of Representatives, proclaims, “Israel is West's first line of defense.”
“Long a Bastion of Liberalism, the Netherlands Takes a Sharp Right Turn” proclaims a shocked headline in the New York Times.
It can happen here, too.
In Israel, it’s important for what the media call the “far-right” to continue to be in charge. It is a matter of Israel’s survival.
As we see in this current conflict, many Palestinians are moving south, because of Hamas terrorism against Israel and the military response from the Jewish state, and Biden seems to agree with Israeli authorities that Hamas must not be allowed to return to power there. But Biden still pushes the “two-state solution,” apparently with the other state being controlled by the Palestinian Authority. This is another recipe for genocide against Israel.
Both movements are puppets of foreign states. Hamas is controlled by Iran and the Palestinian Authority is controlled by Moscow, the main international backer of Iran.
In this context, the words of Geert Wilders, who wrote the book, Marked for Death: Islam's War Against the West and Me, are important and noteworthy. He made the point, “…although defeated Nazi Germany was subject to de-Nazification, there was no de-Marxification after the fall of communism… And without the public accounting of a trial, people tend to forget how evil communism was.”
Co-existence with communism is also impossible.
It is not, therefore, shocking to discover that communists in the United States are behind the anti-Israel protests. Our media will not tell you this story. But my report on the protests documents with photographs who is really pulling the strings.
It will take courage, such as that exhibited by President Jackson during America’s battle with the Indians, to solve these problems.
It will not be pretty but it must be done. There is too much hatred for the Jews in the world today. Jew-haters on the borders of Israel with their own state will only mean more death and suffering for both peoples.
One thing we know is that a “truce” or a “ceasefire” will only delay the inevitable. The hostage-takers and the terror masters in Moscow and Tehran must be destroyed.
Then, and only then, can the “Palestinians” be accommodated in Jordan and Egypt and any other Arab/Muslim state that wants them.

The Next Phase of Communist Revolution in America
By Cliff Kincaid
Conservatives regard Thanksgiving as a Pilgrim achievement but the Marxists in our midst see it differently. To them, Thanksgiving is a stain, a stigma, an opportunity for Marxist exploitation of racial differences to advance a communist revolution.
The “progressive” strategist Steve Phillips, author of Barack Hussein Obama’s “Permanent Revolution” strategy of political power, refers to the practice of “land acknowledgment,” or recognizing the indigenous land owners, but he quickly adds the following important note: this “simply doesn’t go far enough in addressing and bringing about justice and reparations for the murder, genocide, and brutality that Native peoples faced at the hands of settler colonists; the theft of their land; and the conditions and challenges their descendants continue to face today as a result.”
In line with this, consider the message from the group “Progressive Maryland,” declaring that “Operating on stolen land, we voluntarily pay a monthly land tax to the Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians, aiding efforts to revitalize Native land and communities while empowering Indigenous people to regain control of their ancestral territory.”
Progressive Maryland says it “acknowledges that both our organization and the spaces we work within stand upon the unceded ancestral homelands of the Indigenous people of Maryland, including the Accohannock Indian Tribe, Assateague Peoples Tribe, Nause-Waiwash Band of Indians, Piscataway Conoy Tribe, Piscataway Indian Nation, Pocomoke Indian Nation and Youghiogheny River Band of Shawnee Indians. We acknowledge them as the original stewards of Maryland's lands.”
In other words, we must give the land back to the Indians and pay them for it.
In Maryland, that amounts to 7 million acres of “ancestral land.”
But don’t get the idea that these “progressives” are going to give up their homes and salaries to the Indians. Don’t think progressive Governor Wes Moore will vacate his office and turn it over to an Indian chief.
In truth, this is all about whitewashing the brutality of the Indians and demonizing the white man. Hence, the name “Redskins” for the local Washington NFL team was eliminated and they have now become the “Commanders,” still losing to the Dallas Cowboys.
The narrative is that these Indians simply co-exist with nature and are no threat to anybody else. But let us remember that the sacred document, the Declaration of Independence, declares that “He [King George III] has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction, of all ages, sexes and conditions.”
As I have noted in a previous column, the British-backed Indian attacks on the Americans were a factor in the cause of independence. Our founders understood that some of these “savages” were ruthless killers fighting for the British against the American revolutionaries.
An honest rendition of American history shows that Indians 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.”
Another part of relevant history, frequently overlooked, is that Indian tribes owned slaves. One tribe, the Chickasaws, owned over a thousand black slaves, as noted by David S. Reynolds, the author of Waking Giant: America in the Age of Jackson.
In Maryland, the Piscataway Conoy Tribe received Maryland State recognition on January 9, 2012.
The state says the traditional territory of the tribe primarily included present-day Charles, Prince George’s and St. Mary’s counties, extending north into Baltimore County and west to the foothills of the Appalachians.
So when the group “Progressive Maryland” says that we are “operating on stolen land” and voluntarily paying “a monthly land tax to the Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians,” they are laying the groundwork for what is to come – reparations from the citizens of the state of Maryland, to be copied on a national basis.
As part of the “Landback” movement, we learn that their objective is the “reclamation of everything stolen from the original peoples” and that, in the name of Mother Earth, we anticipate “a future where Black reparations and Indigenous LANDBACK co-exist” and “BIPOC collective liberation is at the core.”
BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous and People of Color.
The BIPOC Project “aims to build authentic and lasting solidarity among Black, Indigenous and People of Color in order to undo Native invisibility, anti-Blackness, dismantle white supremacy and advance racial justice.”
So eliminating the name “Redskins” isn’t the end of this movement. What it means is that our ancestors and their descendants must pay the ultimate price -- in money and our own place and situation in America today.
We are the targets.
Exposing this Marxist movement, which is the next phase of Obama’s Permanent Revolution, is our challenge.
We must remember President Andrew Jackson’s Farewell Address, highlighting the plight of the Indians and referring to their “unhappy race” and them being “the original dwellers in our land.” But now, he said, “we may well hope that they will share in the blessings of civilization.”
So-called “nation-building” worked in America. We owe the Indians nothing.
America’s “Collective Responsibility”
By Cliff Kincaid
We hear a lot these days about “collective responsibility” for what a nation does. Thanksgiving represents gratitude for what our ancestors gave to us. But “collective responsibility” means something more.
The Palestinians brought Hamas to power and are paying the price, in the same way the Germans ultimately suffered because of Hitler’s rise to power.
The USA is unique in that we, as a people, do not seem to hold other countries responsible for what they have done to us. Consider Paul Kengor’s article, “Killed by a ‘Silly,’ Deadly Communist,” examining some of the evidence that the Russian Communists used Lee Harvey Oswald to kill John F. Kennedy. To this day, the old Soviet Union/Russia has never been held responsible for this crime.
If there was justice in the world, Vladimir Putin, a former KGB colonel, would be put on trial for crimes against humanity, not only for the murder of JFK but the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II. The KGB was responsible for both.
In a speech in Indianapolis in July 1968, President Ronald Reagan stated:
“Five years ago, a president was murdered by one who renounced his American citizenship to embrace the godless philosophy of communism, and it was communist violence he brought to our land. The shattering sound of his shots were still ringing in our ears when a policy decision was made to play down his communist attachment lest we provoke the Soviet Union.”
Just last week China Joe entertained the Chinese Communist ruler, Xi Jinping, who bears ultimate responsibility for more than one million dead Americans from COVID. But China Joe treated him like a conquering hero on American soil. China Joe did call him a “dictator” but that is not controversial. What is controversial is that Xi acts like a dictator of America and that the USA appears to be a colony of China.
For this strange predicament, we bear “collective responsibility.” It is our fault. We as a nation did not object sufficiently when Democratic Party officials used the COVID pandemic as an excuse to make illegal changes in election law that permitted their own political party to grab power under questionable circumstances in several swing states, turning the results against President Trump.
Faced with the opposition, Trump endorsed a patriotic and peaceful protest but then, in the end, ceded power to a corrupt political machine and its puppet, Joe Biden, operating at the behest of Barack Hussein Obama, the real power.
Speaker Mike Johnson notes, “Since the Obama Administration, the Left has fallen deeper and deeper into the fell clutch of Marxism.” But our descent into oblivion began decades earlier.
For those confused by the communist claims that right-wingers or the CIA murdered JFK, I encourage you to read the text of the speech that John F. Kennedy was scheduled to give at the Trade Mart in Dallas on November 22, 1963, the day of his assassination.
Kennedy was an anti-communist determined to stop communism’s advance around the world by making the U.S. into the strongest military power on earth. This was the main subject of the speech Kennedy never gave.
Ominously, Kennedy, the victim of a communist assassin, spoke in the prepared remarks of “the guerrillas, saboteurs, insurgents and assassins who threaten freedom” in the world. It was a clear reference to Castro and communist efforts to take Latin America and Southeast Asia.
As we remember those words, our attention turns to an amazing development – the election of an anti-communist to the presidency in Argentina, Javier Milei.
But in the same way we continue to hear disinformation about the real villains in the JFK assassination, I urge people to go to Milei’s own website, to understand what his “Freedom Advances” political party is all about. He is a free-market economist who supports Israel and Ukraine and opposes the policies of the pro-Marxist Pope Francis and Russia and China.
But he is being smeared as a lunatic and extreme right-winger.
His stance should be copied by conservatives here, especially in foreign policy. His pro-Israel and pro-Ukraine positions represent the best of anti-communism today. These two countries, as well as Taiwan, are standing strong against Russia, Iran, and their clients.
Milei’s running mate, Victoria Villarruel, is an Argentinian lawyer and president of the Center for Legal Studies on Terrorism and its Victims (CELTYV), which documents communist terrorist crimes committed from 1969 to 1979 in Argentina. She promotes legal rights for Argentinian victims of communist terrorism and fights against Cultural Marxism.
During the 1970s, the Montoneros and the People’s Revolutionary Army (ERP) by its Spanish acronym) carried out many acts of communist terrorism. They were part of the Russian use of terrorism to achieve communist ends.
It is difficult to overstate the significance of their victory in Argentina. They promise huge changes, making them targets of the communists.
To understand their opposition, especially in the economic sphere, consider the letter signed by over 100 “progressive” economists from across the world ahead of the elections. They don’t want Milei to dismantle the Big Government welfare state.
Echoing the points in this letter, the far-left British Guardian nevertheless noted, “Four in 10 citizens currently live in poverty and annual inflation is close to 140 percent – a crisis Milei has vowed to fix by defeating his rival, Argentina’s finance minister, Sergio Massa, and taking dramatic measures such abolishing the central bank and dollarizing the economy.”
With 4 in 10 in poverty and an inflation rate close to 140 percent, no wonder the people threw the bums out. They realize socialism doesn’t work.
What Milei has done in Argentina we must do in the United States. Like Israel, Ukraine, and Taiwan, Argentina is now a shining example of what can happen in the U.S.
Our Central Bank – the Federal Reserve – is supposed to ensure financial stability. People can see that it has not worked out so well.
We operate in a dollar economy, still the world’s reserve currency, but the rating for our outlook has shifted from stable to negative, and the day may come when Treasury securities may not find buyers because of inflation, national debt and deficits.
Ironically, the workers and “the people” in the United States are revolting against the liberal elites. And that means that Trump or any Republican, if elections are fair and honest, should be easily able to win the presidency in 2024.
Pope Francis Embraces Global Islam and Mother Earth
By Cliff Kincaid
The FBI was caught with a memo authorizing surveillance of traditional Catholics but FBI director Christopher Wray disavowed the memo. We now understand that the assignment was subcontracted to Pope Francis, who just sacked a conservative Bishop in Texas. This does far more damage to the Catholic Church than anything the FBI could do.
On Sunday, November 12, as Catholics were reading the Gospel message about the need to avoid falling asleep “for you know neither the day nor the hour” of Christ’s return, many were waking up to learn that Texas Bishop Joseph E. Strickland was fired from his post. Strickland, an advocate of traditional Catholic teachings, was removed from his duties in the diocese of Tyler, Texas.
Strickland was NOT caught in a sex scandal, and his Tyler, Texas, diocese did not have to go bankrupt because of sex scandal payouts to victims. Instead, he was accused of criticizing the pope.
“The only answer I have to that,” referring to his removal, “is because forces in the Church right now don’t want the truth of the Gospel,” he said.
If this is the case, then what explains the direction of the Vatican under Francis? What is his agenda if not the Gospel of Christ?
One answer may lie in the report by conservative Bill Donohue of the Catholic league that, on October 17, Francis “welcomed Catholic dissidents who have previously been condemned by U.S. cardinals and bishops. He met for almost an hour with Sister Jeannine Gramick, who, along with Fr. Robert Nugent, founded New Ways Ministry (NWM) in 1977; it is a radical pro-homosexual group.”
What is more, says Donohue, Gramick “was best friends with the most notorious serial child rapist priest in American history, Fr. Paul Shanley.”
While homosexual activism is being embraced by the Vatican, the pope has remained silent about the case of Mark Houck, a Catholic father of seven children who was arrested at gunpoint by dozens of FBI agents in front of his weeping children for allegedly violating a federal law restricting pro-life protests. Houck, who was acquitted, is suing the Biden administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) and seeking $4 million in damages for his dramatic arrest.
Strickland had been under attack by the Vatican for protesting providing Holy Communion to pro-abortion politicians such as Joe Biden.
Newsmax reported that Bishop Strickland “has been at odds with Francis’ far-left changes and pronouncements, some of which directly contradict the ancient faith’s core Christian beliefs. Recently Francis has suggested priests can bless same-sex unions, even though the church has long held that any sexual relations outside of marriage is sinful. And this week the Vatican indicated transgender individuals could be baptized and serve as godparents.”
Amidst the carnage of two major wars and the United States in moral and economic decline, Pope Francis, leader of 1.3 billion Catholics, has decided that the world must come together because of “climate change” and that Catholics who believe in the right to life and other traditional teachings must be given the boot. On October 4, he issued Laudate Deum, described by his supporters as “a powerful exhortation to all people to address the climate crisis with faith and courage.” It was a follow-up to his environmental encyclical, Laudato si!, citing the mystical work of Teilhard De Chardin, who was nearly excommunicated.
Pope Francis, one of the most liberal popes in history, wants the world to come together in a “Faith for Earth” initiative and has announced he will be attending the upcoming United Nations conference on climate change and rub elbows with Muslim leaders.
Francis will travel to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from December 1 to December 3, to participate in COP28, the U.N. Climate Change Conference, and then take part in the inauguration of the Faith Pavilion, the first-ever hub for “interfaith programming and engagement” at COP. He will appear with the grand imam of Al-Azhar and chairman of the Muslim Council of Elders, Ahmed Al-Tayeb.
While he pursues an alliance with Muslims and the environmental movement, Pope Francis has not cleaned up the corruption in his own church. His recent moves seem designed to cause more Americans to leave the church in disgust over the child sexual abuse scandals and left-wing direction of the Vatican.
George Neumayr, author of The Political Pope, examined the left-wing ideology driving Francis and his seeming indifference to the threats posed by radical Islam and Russian communism. Russia continues to be a country with special significance in terms of the Fatima revelations and Bible prophecy.
In that apparition to the children at Fatima, the Virgin Mary requested the consecration of Russia, otherwise the “errors” of Russia would spread around the world.
In the book, The Devil is Afraid of Me, Fr. Gabriele Amorth, an exorcist for the diocese of Rome, confirms that the consecration had never occurred because Russia was not specifically named in a sacred ceremony which took place under the auspices of the Vatican.
If the consecration had taken place, as requested, the world could have been spared 100 million dead from international communism.
Before invading Ukraine under President Biden, Russian President Vladimir Putin had visited the Vatican and acted like a religious believer. Putin made the sign of the cross, gave the pope a Virgin Mary icon, and bent over to kiss it. Pope Francis followed suit.
Last August Francis appeared to justify the invasion of Ukraine by praising the Russian empire.
Before firing Bishop Strickland, Francis had returned Miguel D’Escoto to his duties as a priest in the Roman Catholic Church, after a 29-year suspension. D’Escoto, who passed away in 2017, was the former foreign minister of Communist Sandinista Nicaragua and Catholic Priest of the Maryknoll Order who advocated Marxist-oriented liberation theology and won the Lenin Peace Prize from the old Soviet Union. He served as President of the U.N. General Assembly from September 2008 until September 2009.
D'Escoto had been removed from his post on direct orders from John Paul II, the anti-communist pope.
The Washington Post noted that while John Paul II was “extremely public in his fight against communism,” Francis seems dedicated to being known as a “master builder of bridges” between the communist and free worlds. This has worked to the advantage of the communists.
Today, in Sandinista-controlled Nicaragua, Catholic priests in the country are being imprisoned as enemies of the communist state. Bishop Rolando Álvarez of Matagalpa, Nicaragua, was sentenced to 26 years in prison.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops reported that five priests, a deacon, two seminarians and two media professionals employed by the Diocese of Matagalpa were deported from Nicaragua to the United States. Bishop Álvarez was on the list of deportees to be sent to the United States but refused to leave Nicaragua. He decided to stay and fight from a jail cell.
This is what happened because of the olive branch Francis extended to the Sandinista communists. But his sacking of Bishop Strickland demonstrates that Francis has not learned any lessons from this.
He is doing the work of the FBI in targeting conservative Catholics for removal from the church and society.
