  • By Forcing Control On Hong Kong, Beijing Killed The Golden Goose

    05/30/2020 8:00:27 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies
    The Federalist ^ | May 30, 2020 | Helen Raleigh President Donald Trump announced Friday that he has directed his administration to “begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give Hong Kong different and special treatment.” His announcement came a day after China’s People’s Congress passed Beijing’s controversial new national security law related to Hong Kong. Trump’s announcement will profoundly affect the future of Hong Kong and the U.S.-China relationship.The president’s decision was based on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s certification to Congress Wednesday that “Hong Kong is no longer autonomous from China,” a decision he said gave him no pleasure but that “sound policy-making requires a recognition...
  • Jinping Takes Up the US Challenge

    05/27/2020 3:59:22 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 51 replies ^ | May 27, 2020 | Pat Buchanan
    Is the U.S. up for a second Cold War -- this time with China? What makes the question newly relevant is that Xi Jinping's China suddenly appears eager for a showdown with the United States for long-term supremacy in the Asia-Pacific and the world. With the U.S. consumed by the coronavirus pandemic that has killed 100,000 Americans and crashed our economy to depths not seen since the Great Depression, China's dictator seems to be making his move. At the Communist Party conclave this May, China announced that it was seizing control of Hong Kong's security. From now on, subversion, sedition,...

    Thegatewaypundit ^ | May 15 2020 | Jim Hoft
    State Department Inspector General and Deep State hack Steve Linick was fired on Friday night. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo fired the anti-Trump Obama holdover. Linick served as State Department IG since 2013 Linick played a role in the faux impeachment of President Trump over Ukraine. Linick requested an urgent meeting with Congressional Democrat staffers. During the meeting Linick handed over documents related to the Trump administration and Ukraine. The entire impeachment was a scam to divert attention away from the Biden Crime Family and Hunter Bidens pay-for-play with Burisma Holdings. Linick was an anti-Trump hack who should have been...

    On March 17 and 18, Christopher Steele testified in a British court where he revealed both 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice knew about his anti-Trump dossier research. According to a transcript obtained by Just the News, Steele told a British court he was hired by Fusion GPS through the Democratic National Committee (DNC) linked law firm Perkins Coie to work for the Clinton campaign. Steele said Fusion GPS owner Glenn Simpson tipped him to the DNCs role in the anti-Trump dossier. I presumed it was the Clinton campaign, and Glenn Simpson had...

    Reuters ^ | April 5, 2020 | by Katherine Eban (D-Reuters)
    In defending his strategy against the deadly coronavirus, President Donald Trump repeatedly has said he slowed its spread into the United States by acting decisively to bar travelers from China on Jan. 31. I was criticized by the Democrats when I closed the Country down to China many weeks ahead of what almost everyone recommended. Saved many lives, he tweeted, for instance, on March 2. But Reuters has found that the administration took a month from the time it learned of the outbreak in late December to impose the initial travel restrictions amid furious infighting. During that time, the National...

    JUDICIAL WATCH ^ | MARCH 20, 2020
    Judicial Watch today released 80 pages of new emails recently found by the FBI that further document how former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her unsecure, non-government email to transmit classified and other sensitive government information. The documents include 11 new Clinton email documents. The emails include an email sent by Mrs. Clinton a month after the Benghazi terrorist attack referencing a Benghazi security issue. The emails also include talking points, which are redacted, for a meeting with President Obama. (This is the second release from the batch of Clinton emails the FBI inexplicably found late last year.) The...

    The State Department is withholding all key documents on Bidens extortion of the Ukrainian government until after Trumps impeachment trial. Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch in September sued the State Department for documents related to Joe Bidens involvement in the firing of Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma Holdings. Joe Bidens drug addict son Hunter was sitting on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company and being paid by some accounts over $200,000 a month even though he had zero experience in the field. Then-Vice President Joe Biden, who was tasked to oversee...

The cocky CNN anchor, Becky Anderson, was either completely ignorant of what she was reporting on or flat out lying. However, this is CNN who also on Tuesday evening lied about the Presidents activity after the missile attack so both could be true. [transcript at link] -snip-

    President Donald Trump’s Department of State, under Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, continues operating an Obama-era program, known as TechCamp, designed to fight “misinformation and propaganda” as well as “fake news” across the globe. Since TechCamp was founded under President Barack Obama’s State Department during the tenure of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the opaque group has led dozens of events across the planet, and since the election of President Trump a disproportionate number of the events focus on fighting “fake news.”While TechCamp’s purpose was vague at its inception, it was allegedly first used to foment dissent and eventually civil...
  • Sniffer Dogs Suffer for US Willful Ignorance About Islam

    The Independent reported Tuesday that the US has stopped exporting bomb-sniffing dogs to Egypt and Jordan after a number of animals died from mistreatment and neglect, US authorities said. Those US authorities are likely scratching their heads over this, wondering what on earth could possibly be the motive of Egyptian and Jordanian law enforcement in mistreating these dogs. The explanation is simple, but since it lies outside the bounds of the military establishments politically correct fantasies regarding Islam, it will almost certainly never be acknowledged. The clearest evidence of that is the fact that the decision to stop sending these...
  • Citizen Revolt: Resist Refugee Resettlement Dumps

    Should U.S. citizens have input into whether their neighborhoods are fundamentally and permanently transformed into United Nations refugee camps full of welfare dependents and tax burdens? Government-funded charities that profit mightily from the federal refugee resettlement program say: "Hell, no!" But President Donald Trump and growing numbers of informed Americans across the heartland are raising their voices to say: "Heavens, yes!" This week, an extraordinary revolt took place in Bismarck, North Dakota, where an overflow crowd of residents braved subzero temperatures to register their opposition to allowing the Lutheran Social Services to dump any new refugees in their backyard. Thanks...

    A liberal watchdog groups attempt to nail Rudy Giuliani has backfired in spectacular fashion after their FOIA request resulted in the US State Department releasing detailed accusations of corruption against the Bidens based on interviews with former Ukrainian officials who were in charge of the investigations. Responding to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from the group American Oversight, the State Department on Friday night released almost 100 pages of records detailing efforts by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani to investigate corruption, which include contacts with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) earlier this year. While...

    Rudy Giuliani says US diplomats were doing the bidding of George Soros in Ukraine, in interview with Glenn Beck Rudy Giuliani told Glenn Beck during an exclusive interview that U.S. diplomats were doing the bidding of billionaire philanthropist George Soros in Ukraine in a "massive pay-for-play" scheme that included falsifying evidence against President Donald Trump. Giuliani, the president's personal attorney, spoke to Beck on his program Wednesday about the claims being made against him by Democrats in their ongoing impeachment inquiry. "The anti-corruption bureau is a contradiction," said Giuliani about the bureau set up in Ukraine to root out corruption....

  • Non Government Organization that meddle in other countries affairs is just "Meddle Laundering"?

    11/17/2019 8:28:55 AM PST · by GraceG · 10 replies
    Isn't the meddling by NGOs by using our tax money to pay NGOs ( Non Government Organizations ) just another form of money laundering. Instead of laundering money it is simply laundering meddling, since meddling can be used as a currency since it is essentially political power and change. Of which it can be redeemed like some sort of sick token for money to fill the pockets of those you want it to flow to? So isn't this just essentially "Meddle Laundering"
