  • SecNav Says China Poses 'Threat Beyond Any Comparison' to American Way of Life

    The Navy and Marine Corps' top civilian leader says China poses a greater threat to the U.S. than many Americans may realize. Navy Secretary Kenneth Braithwaite recently wrapped up a weeklong trip to the Asia-Pacific region, where he met with local leaders in Japan, Singapore, Guam and Palau, along with sailors and Marines operating there. Now back in Washington, D.C., Braithwaite said the U.S. is behind when it comes to competing with China -- and it must catch up quickly. "I think [China] is probably the greatest threat to our country that Americans, writ large, do not understand," Braithwaite said...

    Is President Trump a self-styled authoritarian? No, but the people accusing him of being one just might be themselves. One of the most enduring prevarications emanating from the left during the presidency of Donald Trump is the idea that he is a self-styled authoritarian strongman in the tradition of Mussolini and Hitler. Political commentators such as media personality Rachel Maddow and economic adviser Robert Reich were among the earliest purveyors of this sort of fiction, dating back to 2015 and 2017, respectively. In 2020, journalists like Matthew C. MacWilliams and others like him who continue to write through the lens...

  • Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev blames TV show Dallas for the fall of the USSR because it opened people's eyes to western lifestyles

    TV show Dallas was the main reason behind the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union, it has been claimed. Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart said that former Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev told him that the 1980s soap opera 'had more effect' in ending the Cold War than anything else. Mr Stewart, 68, said the Gorbachev admitted an illicit broadcast of the US show in Russia had opened his people's eyes to Western life, and the Texas-based show 'brought down' the communist superpower.

    Most Democrat in 2020 have no conceptual understanding of what voting Democrat actually means. Californians are fleeing in record numbers for red states like Texas, Arizona, and Nevada. New York City is emptying out as people with means relocate; many are going to Florida. For reasons only the Heavens know, there are normal people still living in Portland. It is not hard to see what is happening: People are fed up with the overreach of Democrat-monopolized government. Their policies are inhibiting the possibility of retaining personal independence and achieving any sense of self-fulfillment. This is on top of not being...

    Liberalism is a cult. It is not a philosophy of government. It is the mask that madness wears in twenty-first century politics and culture. Its votaries now embrace an idea system of stupidity and error, a refuge of political identity for unfinished minds, altogether inclusive in its message and totalitarian in its instincts. Rational thinking has become offensive and intolerable in accordance with the leftist assertion that the lie is stronger than the truth. In pursuit of meaning and relevance through cultish activism, the new liberals are held captive to a hostile and controlling ideology. They hate as only the...

    Two recent reports, when combined, paint a dark pathway for America in the coming weeks, a nation set on fire by multiple contentious court battles and widespread daily protests. The 79 Days Report, by the Claremont Institute and the Texas Policy Foundation, illuminates possible election legal battles on the horizon and how they might play out in the courts. The bottom line? The litigation will be time consuming and combative. There’s no fast forward button to speed up the process. It concludes: On election night, the winner will not be known “due to millions of uncounted mail-in ballots in 6...
  • Will China’s Chip Race Become Its New ‘Great Leap Forward’?

    Epoch Times ^ | 10/24/2020 | Fan Yu
    China has put all its “chips” into China’s fledgling semiconductor industry.Many companies are charging into the semiconductor industry. The trend, with the encouragement of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), is occurring because of pressure from the Trump administration to cut off Chinese technology companies from U.S. chips.But this latest chip rush may also create vast inefficiencies, divert local resources into wasteful ventures, and usher in a 21st-century version of the “Great Leap Forward”—the disastrous 1950s plan by Mao Zedong to surpass the West in steel production that resulted in mass famine and economic despair.The need to invest in indigenous semiconductor...

    "Useful idiot" is a pejorative term for a person who propagandizes for a cause without fully understanding (due to naďveté, stupidity, or on purpose) the cause's goals, who is cynically used by the cause's founders. It is used to describe otherwise sensible people who become, due to misrepresentations or outright lies, susceptible to Marxist/communist/socialist propaganda and manipulation. Why is this important? Because this is what Black Lives Matter is doing: using useful idiots to advance its cause. One of BLM's founders is Alicia Garza, a trained Marxist. Why is that significant? Because it explains BLM's agenda. Marxism's (and BLM's) ultimate...

    I pray that I’m being unnecessarily alarmist, but the evidence is mounting. Communism is very much alive and well in China. The tactics of concentration camps and big lies sponsored by a corrupt nomenklatura killing each other for political power are the staples of communism. The tactic of embracing capitalism temporarily to save communism from its own incompetence was previewed by Lenin’s New Economic Policy in the 1920’s. The flocks of western intellectuals, academics and businessmen, that embraced Soviet communism in the 20th century have been replaced by a new generation, similarly duped, or compromised, except that the object of...

    "To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child." -Cicero Unfortunately, with every election cycle, a growing percentage of the electorate know nothing of socialism's evil because of when they were born, when their teachers were born, and because of the gaslighting that has shut down all critical thought. Give your kids a crash lesson in the evils of communism at the "Communism at 'Peace'" website. Show them that even revered groups such as gays, native Americans (yes, native Americans), and unions were crushed under communism's thumb. Or if they have time for...

    Pacific Gas & Electric may cut power to over 1 million people on Sunday to prevent the chance of sparking wildfires as extreme fire weather returns to the region, the utility announced Friday. The nation’s largest utility said it could black out customers in 38 counties — including most of the San Francisco Bay Area — as weather forecasts called for a return of bone-dry, gusty weather that carries the threat of downing or fouling power lines or other equipment that in recent years have been blamed for igniting massive and deadly blazes in central and Northern California. The safety...

    There is one overriding issue in this campaign. It’s not abortion, immigration or judicial nominations, as important as they are. ​When your house is on fire, don’t make plans to redecorate. There’s a fire raging in America which could consume our country. This isn’t hyperbole. It’s reality. If the revolutionaries seize control, nothing else will matter in the long run. ​We’ve seen it time and again. We saw it in the streets of Paris in 1789, in Moscow in 1917 and in Germany the early 1930s – the marches and sloganeering, the rage, the murderous violence, the attacks on authority,...

    The trial brings to life Iran's use of diplomats for terrorist purposes. In 2018, an Iranian diplomat left his post in Austria, returned to Iran, and flew a bomb back to Europe. After turning it over to two Iranian operatives in Luxembourg via Germany, he returned to Austria. As part of a coordinated intelligence operation between French, German, and Belgian services, the authorities ended up thwarting the plot by stopping these two Iranian operatives before reaching their destination, an Iranian opposition rally held in a Paris suburb. Their main target was the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of...

    Pretty amazing how much China's name turns up whenever there is some kind of Big Tech censorship. China's desire for global dominance is no secret. Since its entrance into the World Trade Organization in 1991 at the urging of Bill Clinton and Joe Biden, Americans have been aware of China's economic and military rise to power. The election of President Trump and his Make America Great Again campaign slowed the inroads they were making and highlighted our Congress' inability or unwillingness to protect American interests for the last few decades. As reported by a former Facebook insider to the New...

    If you write three red banners on google you will get information about China’s ideological slogan prominent in the Chinese political scene of the 1950s that have people all in a kerfuffle as well. The “Three Red Banners” also called the “Three Red Flags,” consisted of General Line for socialist construction, the Great Leap Forward and the people’s communes. After the first Five-Year Plan, the People’s Republic of China continued its socialist construction by introducing the “Three Red Banners Movement”. General Line directed the Chinese people to “go all out, aim high, and build socialism with greater, faster, better, and...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin recently compared the Democratic Party’s platform with communism and said the shared values could form the “ideological basis” for developing ties between Russia and the U.S. if Joe Biden becomes president. Putin, sitting for an interview with Russia’s state-owned Rossiya TV on Oct. 7, compared the two main presidential candidates in the U.S. and evaluated each candidate in terms of how Russia could work with them as president. He said despite some criticism of Russia, the Democratic Party holds values he identifies with as a former member of the Soviet Communist Party for 18 years. “As...

    By now, everyone has seen the Joe Biden political signs. I wondered about the significance of the letter "E" being printed in red and after my wife pointed this out to me, it makes sense. "Is it too much of a coincidence that the Biden for President logo has connections with socialist and communist remnants of an era from China’s history some 60 years ago? The three simple stripes that make up the letter “E” in Biden eerily callback to the “Three Red Banner” slogan from when China was building into a state in the late 1950s early 1960s..."

    The answer should be obvious: you shouldn’t. Not in a million years. I know people who are still trying to decide whether or not to vote for Democrats in this election. As shocking as that might seem, it’s true. And as with any important decision that must be made, an important question to answer before deciding to do it is “Why?” While I know some people simply vote for personalities, let’s assume for sake of argument that some undecided voters are actually thinking people who want to wrestle with what is at stake in this election for them, their families,...

    The secret slips out: She was holding them hostage all along, hoping to beat them into submission and vote for Joe Biden. For the past 200 days, Democratic governors have been commanding their states to go on lockdown, and ordering nursing homes to be seeded with COVID patients. The result has been the twin disaster of broken economies and high COVID death tolls, way out of proportion to the rest of the country. And incredibly, they're blaming President Trump for all of the bad consequences of their own acts, and reaping big political hay from it. They do all the...
