Is Australia Freer Than China?

Is Australia Freer Than China?

Australia is beginning to look like Communist China. Remember the disturbing reports coming out of China at the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic? We saw images of government agents in hazmat suits forcing people into quarantine boxes, images of people literally welding apartment doors closed with people inside. At the time, Dr. Anthony Fauci reassured us nothing like that could ever happen in a Western democracy. Yet he was wrong. Similar things are already happening in Australia, and many people realize that if the government gets its way, the United States will be next.

Australia is still nominally a democracy, but millions of its citizens are being tracked with apps to make sure they are not violating covid-19 lockdowns. In some Australian states, you must have your phone scanned before entering a church. Out-of-control law enforcement officials in cities like Melbourne and Sydney are beating, choking, body-slamming, pistol-whipping and wounding ordinary citizens with rubber bullets for not wearing masks outside or for violating lockdown decrees. A pregnant mother was handcuffed, arrested and hauled away in front of her children for simply making a Facebook post about a planned anti-lockdown protest. Another woman wearing a sign appealing to the constitution of her country was arrested and put in a police vehicle with her child screaming beside her.

Australia has deployed hundreds of soldiers to help enforce covid-19 lockdowns, and disturbing video footage shows people without masks being tackled by mobs of police officers. Armed police teams are raiding buildings where people have broken social distancing protocols, arresting people inside at gunpoint. This is the type of footage that comes out of socialist dictatorships like Cuba, China and Venezuela, but nothing like this has ever occurred in Australian history. People are being locked in their homes at the will of their state governments, while those who are brave enough to stand up for the freedoms they thought they had are being aggressively pursued, beaten, arrested, fined and imprisoned.

All of this is being done in the name of health and well-being. But oppressive and tyrannical governments always put nice-sounding names on their policies. And as we watch the beatings and imprisonments of ordinary people very similar to us, we are left with this question: Is “democratic” Australia actually any more free than the Communists?

“Yet again today, on the streets of Melbourne, we see extraordinary police brutality and violence against ordinary citizens,” said federal Member of Parliament Craig Kelly. “The police force in Victoria is out of control. … We need an urgent judicial inquiry to find out what has gone wrong and what has happened that resulted in a police force in Australia using such extreme violence against unarmed citizens.”

As Americans watch in disbelief, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis questioned whether the United States should change its diplomatic relationship with Australia. In a recent speech in Tampa, he pointed out that after 18 months, the Australian government continues to enforce lockdowns using its military. “That’s not a free country. It’s not a free country at all,” he said. “In fact … I wonder why we would still have the same diplomatic relations when they’re doing that. Is Australia freer than China—Communist China—right now? I don’t know. The fact that that’s even a question tells you something has gone dramatically off the rails with some of this stuff.”

Japanese Carrier Launches First Plane Since World War II


Self Defense Forces reveal advancements in capabilities—and strategy.





AUnited States Marines F-35B fighter jet took off from and landed on the JS Izumo on October 3. It was the first time since World War ii that a Japanese vessel has launched and recovered a fixed-wing aircraft. In an October 5 news conference, Japanese Defense Minister Nubuo Kishi announced the successful test and said it would improve the alliance between his country and the U.S.

When the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force launched Izumo in 2013, it classified it as a “helicopter destroyer.” Izumo and its sister ship, Kaga, were built to carry 14 anti-submarine helicopters. But the 820-foot-long flight deck raised suspicions: It was clearly designed to launch more than just helicopters. The ships’ elevators were also capable of carrying an F-35.

In March 2020, Japan began modifying Izumo, adding a heat-resistant coating to the deck to prevent damage when aircraft are taking off or landing. Kaga is currently receiving the same transformation.

Izumo’s deck is too short to launch standard naval jets, but it can easily handle a short takeoff vertical landing aircraft, such as the F-35, which do not require catapults for takeoff or arresting gear for landing. Japan has ordered 42 of these stealth fighters, for Izumo and Kaga.

The October 3 test launch from a destroyer-turned-aircraft carrier is a monumental step for Tokyo. Stephen Green at PJ Media wrote, “Aircraft carriers are meant to project power far beyond one’s own shores, and the last time Japan was in the power-projection game, we ended up with little things like the Second World War.”

In that war, U.S. sailors and airmen suffered a surprise attack at Pearl Harbor and fought a previous carrier named Kaga at Midway and U.S. Marines endured an extremely bloody slog of jungle fighting from island to island. After Japan surrendered in Tokyo Harbor, the United States wrote a constitution for Japan that forbade the nation from making war, forever. Article 9 states, “land, sea and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained.”

That constitution is still technically in effect today, but Tokyo has been pushing past its limits since 1950, with the establishment of their National Police Reserve. In 1954, it changed to the Japan Self-Defense Force. Now it is self-defense in name only. In 2015, Tokyo officially “reinterpreted” a section of its Constitution. “Self-defense” now includes military assistance to allies beyond Japanese waters..... REAd more, CLICK ABOVE LINK


Arizona Audit Exposes Massive Fraud



Vaccines have been hailed as the miracle that will help COVID-weary society return to normal. But one ingredient has been missing from the vaccine rollout: honesty.

The response of American government and our media to covid-19 is revealing a lot about our society and ourselves. It is showing us how quickly the world can change, how much we take our rights for granted, and how much or how little we value truth.

covid-19 was the subject of the first speech Joe Biden gave after entering the White House. He recounted how countless Americans have lost their jobs, businesses and homes; how school closures have set children back a year; how graduations, weddings and family reunions have been canceled. He portrayed these people as victims of covid, when in reality, they were victims of government-imposed lockdowns. He then stated that if Americans would obey the newest batch of restrictions, the government might let them enjoy barbecues in their backyards with their families by, ironically, Independence Day.

Intentionally or not, it highlighted the fact that the government’s gigantic, oppressive “cure” has been worse than the disease. But nobody in the radical establishment will say that. Mainstream media outlets, predictably, praised the speech. They continue to support the government’s radical agenda by emphasizing their covid coverage and prominently displaying their death trackers. They are helping scare and shame Americans into wearing masks, then two masks, standing like chess pawns on floor markers 6 feet apart, staying inside their homes, giving up their businesses and incomes, and sacrificing their constitutional rights.

The campaign is coordinated by liberals in politics, big media, Big Tech, big business and beyond. Many of its most virulent supporters call their political party “the party of science.” They accuse those who do not believe in their cause of ignorance, hatred and lying (see “Is Lying Always Wrong?”).

Now the campaign has transitioned to pressure everyone to get vaccinated. It includes a mix of feel-good advertising, shaming and fear-mongering. And it is marked by the same propagandistic and deceitful techniques that were used for the lockdown campaign.

Vaccine Deaths

Many government officials count anyone who died within a few weeks of having a positive covid-19 test as a covid death. These are some of the numbers we see on the government and the media’s ominous “covid death” tickers.

Many everyday people, on the other hand, believe that dying with covid is far different from dying from covid. They say there are complicating factors. They say that many who get tested are at higher risk of death in the first place. They say that there are thousands of deaths from all causes every day in the United States. They say that many who die after a positive test result actually died from other causes (some as obvious as gunshot wounds). But liberal elites reject these objections.

The truth is, though, that some people have died after their bodies absorbed not the virus but the vaccine.

So, is anyone who died 28 to 60 days after having the covid vaccine a “covid vaccine death”?

No. The same officials, journalists, experts, commentators and other elites who want you to think that dying with covid is the same as dying from covid stridently insist that dying with the vaccine is far different from dying from the vaccine. They say there are complicating factors. They say that ...... Click Above Image to read the FULL Story!

00:30 The Traitor in Charge of the Military (46 minutes)

U.S. Gen. Mark Milley presided over the disastrous Afghanistan evacuation. He knew the Abbey Gate bombing was coming, and he ordered the “righteous” drone strike that killed an Afghan family. Following that, he abandoned American citizens trapped in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. Yesterday, we learned that when he was serving under President Donald Trump, he bypassed the commander in chief and took his marching orders from Nancy Pelosi. The propaganda media are saying Milley took “extraordinary” action to undercut the duly-elected president. The Trumpet uses another word to describe these kinds of pernicious acts: treason.

Yesterday, the Biden administration surrendered to the Taliban’s demand that all U.S. forces leave Afghanistan by August 31. This deadline does not give America and its NATO allies enough time to evacuate their own citizens from Afghanistan. Biden’s message to those who are stranded in Afghanistan: “May God protect our diplomats and all those in harm’s way.” In other words, they are on their own.

40:00 Making the Taliban Great Again (8 minutes)

How much military equipment did the U.S. leave behind in Afghanistan? About 75,000 war vehicles, 208 airplanes and helicopters, and 600,000 rifles, machine guns and howitzers. The United States has effectively turned Taliban-controlled Afghanistan into a terrorist superstate.

China is making major advances in its development of weaponry intended to disable or destroy satellites, according to remarks made last week by the director of the United States Indo-Pacific Command.

China is building an array of weapons with abilities ranging from “dazzling to jamming, to kinetic kill-from-the-ground, from space—all that, they’re on the march,” Rear Adm. Michael Studeman said during an intelligence-security webinar, according to Bloomberg.

The SJ-17 satellite is among the Chinese assets believed to be able to attack satellites in orbit. This satellite is dirigible and equipped with a robotic arm that can be controlled by Chinese operatives on the ground. The Center for Strategic and International Studies noted that it has been observed in recent months engaging in “unusual behavior”—including navigating up to other satellites in orbit and interacting with them.

So far the SJ-17 has approached only other Chinese satellites. But experts say there is little that would stop it from navigating up to those of other nations, and using its arm to seize and then hinder or disable them. James Dickinson, commander of the U.S. Space Command, told a congressional hearing in April that such satellites “could be used in a future system for grappling other satellites.” He called attention specifically to the SJ-17, saying it could potentially put U.S. satellites out of commission.

China is also developing ground-based laser systems believed to be capable of blinding satellites in orbit. “There is open-source evidence of four or five main sites that house the technology,” Brian Weeden, director of Program Planning for Secure World Foundation, told National Defense. “All of the sites have distinctive large buildings with roofs that slide back,” he said, adding that some of the facilities “support adaptive optics for targeting objects.”

Whether from space or the ground, China’s capacity to incapacitate U.S. satellites is “significant” because “the next major war could be decided in the opening minutes of the first day, as each side attempts to disable the enemy’s communication tools,” Nikkei said.

Onlookers may suspect that a fear of “mutually assured destruction” would prevent China from attacking American satellites since the Chinese also have many satellites in orbit that the U.S. could target. But the reality is that America has far more satellites in orbit than China or any other nation, and relies on them to an unmatched degree. This means the U.S. has far more to lose than China.

Russia Launches Giant New Submarine


Vladimir Putin sails Russia into a ‘dangerous new era.’

The Russian Navy commenced sea trials for the K-329 Belgorod nuclear submarine (Oscar-ii Class) on June 25. Belgorod, the largest submarine built in 30 years, was tested on the White Sea in Russia’s northern coast. After 28 years of construction, it’s expected to be approved for use later this year.

Estimates to the exact size of the submarine vary. Forbes estimates the length of Belgorod’s hull to be 604 feet. That’s roughly the size of six blue whales end to end. It is the longest submarine in the world and the heaviest built in Russia since the Cold War. An anonymous source told tass that Belgorod is to enter Russia’s Pacific fleet.

The submarine will be nuclear-powered and equipped with six Poseidon 2M39 torpedoes. Poseidon, nicknamed a “doomsday” device, can hit the ocean floor with a 100 megaton thermonuclear explosion. This would create a radioactive tsunami that could wipe out entire cities. We wrote on April 15: “The resultant waves would span thousands of miles of land, rendering the area uninhabitable for decades.” Poseidon torpedoes can be deployed from anywhere in the world and cannot be stopped by any conventional weapon. The Poseidon torpedoes won’t be ready to deploy for a few years, which means Belgorod won’t be fully operational immediately.

Belgorod will function as the “mother ship” of Losharik, a 200-foot-long submarine designed for seafloor work. Losharik is suspected to be a “spy sub” built to tap into or sever underwater communications cables.

Report: Google Funded Wuhan Collaborator Peter Daszak’s Research for Over a Decade


For months, Big Tech companies did all they could to prevent information about the true origins of covid-19 from reaching the public. Both Facebook and YouTube banned posts mentioning the lab-leak theory. At the same time, Google manipulated its search algorithms to suppress searches for “coronavirus lab leak.” When a Wall Street Journal reporter asked Google Health Vice President David Feinberg why Google was censoring searches about the lab-leak theory, Feinberg said Google did not want to “lead people down pathways that we would find to be not authoritative information.”

Yet new reports reveal there may be another reason Google did not want people researching the lab-leak theory. Google was funding EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak’s research and did not wish to expose its role in kicking off a pandemic that caused the worst recession since World War ii.

Investigative reporter Natalie Winters released a report on June 19 noting that Google.org has been funding EcoHealth Alliance research for over a decade. Among the studies Google.org funded was a 2010 study on bat flaviviruses, a 2014 study on henipavirus spillover from fruit bats to human populations in Africa, a 2015 study on Macacine Herpesvirus-1 in long-tailed macaques, and a 2018 study on the chances of an animal virus crossing over into the human population of China.

Why was the charity arm of Google so interested in funding Dr. Peter Daszak’s research?

EcoHealth Alliance is a United States-based nongovernmental organization that aims to protect people and animals from infectious diseases. Yet under Dr. Daszak’s leadership, this organization has funneled nearly $600,000 to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for research on bat coronavirus. EcoHealth Alliance took most of the money sent to Wuhan from a $3.7 million grant it received from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Dr. Anthony Fauci heads. Other government donors to EcoHealth Alliance’s research fund include the Pentagon, the State Department, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Homeland Security and the Fish and Wildlife Service.

Altogether, EcoHealth Alliance has received at least $60 million from American taxpayers (and an undisclosed amount from Silicon Valley tech giants like Google) to research various viruses.

All this funding becomes tremendously significant if it turns out that covid-19 leaked out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. EcoHealth Alliance funded a 2015 study where Chinese virologist Shi Zhengli and others spliced..... READ MORE, CLICK THE ABOVE LINK

Southern Iraq: Iran’s Missile Launching Pad


Iran is arming its Shiite militia proxies in Iraq with an increasingly modern and lethal missile system; yet no one is stepping in to stop Iran. Why?

Israeli security analyst Jonathan Spyer detailed on June 4 that Iran has been permitted to launch rocket and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia and United States bases, with a thin cloak of deniability. Additionally, Iran can now threaten the security of Israel by deploying missiles capable of reaching any part of the nation from Iraq. Iran is turning Iraq into a giant missile and drone launch site.

Most of the Shiite militias in Iraq are under the umbrella of the Popular Mobilization Forces (pmf). This organization allows them to operate freely and with a veneer of legitimacy. Since its formation in 2014 to combat the Islamic State, Iran has used the militias to funnel money, personnel, and military hardware into southern Iraq.

Control of this region puts Israel in range of Iran’s short-range missiles. The Raad-500 has a range of just over 300 miles; if launched west of Rutba, Iraq, it could strike Jerusalem or even Tel Aviv. The Zolfaghar has a range of around 430 miles, making it capable of hitting almost any target in Israel from Iraq and Syria’s border. The Zolfaghar can hit a target with an accuracy of 30 feet. Additionally, Iran’s Qiam short-range ballistic missile has a range of almost 500 miles and was designed to threaten U.S. bases. Its lack of stabilizer fins reduce its radar signature.

All three of these short-range missile systems are road-mobile, which means they can be hidden and fired from anywhere. They can all be equipped with multiple independent reentry vehicles, making their warheads capable of evading missile defense shields, like Israel’s Iron Dome. Most importantly, all three are either capable of or assumed to be capable of using nuclear warheads. None of this takes into account the medium- and long-range missiles that are currently in Iran’s arsenal or in development.

Reuters warned in August 2018: “According to three Iranian officials, two Iraqi intelligence sources and two Western intelligence sources, Iran has transferred short-range ballistic missiles to allies in Iraq over the last few months. Five of the officials said it was helping those groups to start making their own.” Those missiles included the Zolfaghar. Over the last three years, how many more rockets has Iran smuggled into Iraq?

But Israel isn’t Iran’s only target. On January 23, drones, loaded with explosives, launched from southern Iraq hit the royal palace complex in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This was just one of many drone and rocket attacks that Saudi Arabia has faced this year from Iranian militia proxies.

Iran is using drone and rocket attacks within Iraq to put more pressure on the U.S. to pull out of the region. Iran-backed militias have launched more than 300 attacks on U.S. interests since late 2019, killing four Americans and 25 others.

Was the Biden-Putin Summit a Success?


Moscow is not a friend of Washington. The Russian government is already implicated in the 2020 SolarWinds hack. Giving Putin a list of 16 areas to “hit where it hurts,” accompanied with little more than some finger-wagging, isn’t going to discourage him. If anything, Moscow knows where to aim now.


United States President Joe Biden held a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Switzerland, on June 16. This is the first time the leaders have met since Biden’s inauguration. The summit was held in the context of worsening Russo-American foreign relations.

Leading up to the summit, relations between the U.S. and Russia were increasingly frosty. Washington placed economic sanctions on Moscow after opposition politician Alexei Navalny was imprisoned. Russian tanks on the Ukrainian border worried some that Putin was planning an invasion. After several devastating cyberattacks on American critical infrastructure, Russia is accused of harboring cyberterrorists.

Many hoped that the Geneva Summit would be the chance Biden needed to stand up to Putin. Ahead of the summit, Time magazine released the cover of its latest issue, showing Biden ready to take on Putin, whose face is reflected in Biden’s sunglasses. Many claimed Biden’s decades of political experience groomed him for this moment. When asked how long Biden had been preparing for the summit, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said, “He’s been preparing for 50 years.”


Operational Nuclear Weapons Are Increasing


Nations are modernizing their nuclear arsenals. The number of operationally deployable nuclear weapons rose from 3,720 in 2019 to 3,825 in 2020, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (sipri) warned in a June 14 report. “Around 2,000 of these—nearly all of which belonged to Russia or the U.S.A.—were kept in a state of high operational alert,” sipri noted.

In the report, Matt Korda and Hans M. Kristensen lamented the lack of transparency in regards to the inventories of the nine nuclear-armed states. Historically, only the United States, the United Kingdom and France have given insight into their stockpiles. But even the most transparent nations “have begun to revert to Cold War-era levels of nuclear opacity.”

“If you just look at the total number of nuclear weapons, the disarmament picture looks much better than it actually is,” said Korda. According to sipri, the number of nuclear weapons stockpiled around the world fell from 13,400 at the start of 2020 to 13,080 this year. Korda warned that....  READ MORE.. click the above link


U.S. Lifts Sanctions on Iran—Without a Nuclear Deal


Tehran can apparently have its cake and eat it, too.

The United States agreed to remove sanctions on Iranian entities on June 10. The sanctions concern several Iranian energy companies as well as former officials of the National Iranian Oil Company. This was done in the context of the the Iran-America negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program in Vienna.

U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price claimed there was “absolutely no connection” between the easing of sanctions and the nuclear negotiations. But he did suggest that Washington was rewarding Iran for good behavior. “Every time we impose sanctions, it is our hope that through a verified change in behavior, a verified change in status, we’ll one day be able to remove those sanctions,” said Mr. Price. “Because that means that one way or another, our policy objectives have been met.”

Secretary of State Antony Blinken echoed these sentiments. “These actions demonstrate our commitment to lifting sanctions in the event of a change in status or behavior by sanctioned persons,” he said. According to earlier reports, Blinken said sanctions on Iran would remain in place even if they weren’t consistent with the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. President Joe Biden previously said there wouldn’t be a removal of sanctions without a nuclear deal.

At about the same time, Washington unfroze $16.2 million worth of funds in a South Korean bank. Iran used that money to cover unpaid United Nations dues. Because Iran was behind on its payments, the UN suspended its voting rights. Now that Tehran has paid up, it can vote in the UN once again.

The original Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (jcpoa), was agreed to in 2015 by Iran, America, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China. It gave Iran sanctions relief and unfroze billions of dollars-worth of frozen assets in exchange for a temporary slowing down of its nuclear program. America under President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal in 2018 after Iran repeatedly violated it, and he implemented crippling sanctions on the Iranian economy. In retaliation, Iran ramped up its uranium enrichment.

Here’s What You Need in a World of Killer Robots


Health Dangers Behind the Mask



Evidence shows long-term mask-wearing is itself harmful.

The mandates to wear face masks are starting to drop. This is welcomed news. Amid all the publicity over health concerns related to covid-19 and all the mandates by governments that healthy people wear face masks, the risks these masks pose to our health have been overlooked.

First, the masks are ineffective in protecting us against the coronavirus. Swedish epidemiologist Anders Tegnell warned that scientific evidence for mask-wearing to prevent covid-19 is “astonishingly weak.” Recent studies have failed to produce any new evidence countering decades of data that show face masks are ineffective.

Beyond that, many people feel ill wearing them, and are questioning if masks could harm their long-term health. You would think we could rely on the medical experts for a rational response. But one of the things this past year has taught us is, we can’t. People with other agendas besides good health are manipulating, confusing and deceiving us about this issue.

Michael Yeadon, formerly the chief science officer for Pfizer, made this bold and shocking statement: “Basically, everything your government has told you about this virus, everything you need to do to stay safe, is a lie ….”

Until now, a comprehensive investigation into adverse mask health effects has been lacking. That changed with an April 2021 study in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, showing disturbing symptoms of oxygen deprivation.

Outside air contains 20.93 percent oxygen and 0.03 percent carbon dioxide. But with a close-fitting mask—whether surgical, cloth or N95—trapped air remaining between the mask and face contains lower concentrations of oxygen and higher concentrations of carbon dioxide. This unbalanced mixture is then repeatedly re-breathed. One effect is the dilation of blood vessels in the brain. This is why so many mask wearers complain of short-term symptoms like dizziness, headaches, drowsiness, and increased heart and respiratory rates.

Japan to ‘Drastically’ Increase Defense Budget


Japan’s ruling political party approved on May 24 to “drastically” increase the nation’s defense budget. The proposal was drafted to counter the security threat posed by China’s hike in defense spending.

Less than a week before, Japanese Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi indicated Japan would no longer cap defense spending at 1 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product, according to Nikkei Asia. Japan has not spent more than 1 percent of its gdp on defense since the 1990s, with the exception of 2009 when its gdp plummeted due to the global financial crisis. Kishi said in an interview, “We must increase our defense capabilities at a radically different pace than in the past.”

“Intentionally crossing the 1 percent line would mark a turning point for Japan’s security policy,” Nikkei reported.

On April 16, the United States and Japan published a joint statement in which “Japan resolved to bolster its own national defense capabilities.”

This runs contrary to Article 9 of Japan’s Constitution, which states that “land, sea and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained.” After Japan’s defeat in World War ii, the U.S. wrote this clause into Japan’s Constitution to prevent the nation’s ruthless militarism from reappearing: “Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes.”

Why Is China Collecting American DNA?

Why Is China Collecting American DNA?


Did China Prepare Years Ago to Launch a Pandemic?

Chinese Missiles Can Reach the Entire American Continent


‘Beijing intends to dominate the U.S. and the rest of the planet economically, militarily and technologically.’

The Chinese Navy is armed with nuclear-capable missiles able to hit the entire American continent. In celebration of its 72nd anniversary on April 23, the People’s Liberation Army Navy (plan) showcased submarines that can each carry 16 of these weapons.

China first tested these submarine-launched ballistic missiles in November 2018. Known as JL-3, or Julang 3 (“Big Wave”), this upgraded missile has a range greater than 6,200 miles. The Navy has four Type 094 submarines that can carry 12 JL-3s. Two Type 094A submarines joined the Navy last year during the 71st anniversary celebration; these submarines have enhanced radar and sonar technology and can carry 16 missiles.

A military expert, who requested anonymity, told South China Morning Post, “Before the upgrade, the submarine was armed with the inferior JL-2 that could only hit the northeast United States, but now it’s able to cover the whole American continent.”

China already had the JL-2 missile, capable of carrying either a single warhead 67 times more destructive than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, or three to eight mirvs, which are smaller nuclear warheads able to hit different targets. The range of these JL-2 missiles is 4,500 miles. In order to target the U.S. with the JL-2, the Type 094 submarine would have to push past the First Island Chain, a series of islands in the Chinese periphery that are home to a line of U.S. military bases.

The JL-3 has the same capabilities of the JL-2, but its increased range enables Chinese submarines to hit the American continent without straying far from China’s coastline.

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe warned that “the People’s Republic of China poses the greatest threat to America today, and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom worldwide since World War ii. … Beijing intends to dominate the U.S. and the rest of the planet economically, militarily and technologically” (Dec. 3, 2020)......

Biden Pulling Out of the Middle East


A reduced U.S. military presence in the Middle East is empowering Iran and pushing Gulf states to unite.

In his foreign-policy speech on February 4, Joe Biden announced that the United States would be taking “additional steps to course-correct our foreign policy.” He pledged to end the war in Yemen and recalibrate the U.S.-Saudi relationship, including freezing the sell of offensive weapons that Saudi Arabia has used in its six-year battle in Yemen.

To help protect Saudi Arabia’s facilities and oil installations, he said the U.S. wants to sell specific defensive weapons, including missile interceptors, expand its intelligence sharing, increase training, and provide military-to-military exchange programs.

Biden added, “We’re going to continue to support and help Saudi Arabia defend its sovereignty and its territorial integrity and its people.”

Another U.S. official said, “The bottom line is that the Houthis need to know that we are standing with the Saudis, and we will continue to support their right to self-defense.”

The narrative sounds great, but recent actions tell a different story.

According to an April 1 article from the Wall Street Journal, Biden directed the Pentagon to begin taking the first steps to remove U.S. military presence from the Middle East.

America ‘Is Going to Lose Fast’ in a War With China

The U.S. Air Force regularly simulates war against China.




“The definitive answer if the [United States] military doesn’t change course is that we’re going to lose fast,” Air Force Lt. Gen. S. Clinton Hinote told Yahoo News on March 10, after a simulated war game against China demonstrated America’s growing inferiority in certain scenarios.

The simulation was held last fall and set more than a decade in the future. The conflict began with a Chinese biological-weapon attack on Indo-Pacific U.S. bases. It culminated in simultaneous missile strikes on U.S. bases and warships, and an assault on Taiwan.

American forces suffered severe defeat.

“What many Americans don’t realize,” General Hinote said, “is that years of classified Pentagon war games strongly suggest that the U.S. military would lose that war.”

This means this isn’t the first simulation of its kind the Air Force has held. It certainly isn’t the first that the U.S. has lost. Simulations from a decade ago warned of Chinese superiority in a war in East Asia. China has actively been investing in the military capabilities and tactics that would neutralize the U.S. model of expeditionary warfare.

Since the U.S. likes to operate from safe bases and sanctuaries, China has developed strategies to destroy those locations first. This approach invariably leads to Chinese victory and naval superiority.

So although the U.S. military has been aware of Chinese superiority for years, it has failed to prevent China from widening the gap. And by 2018, it became clear to General Hinote that America was not just losing in the projected conflicts, but “losing faster.”

Last fall’s simulation simply reinforced this reality: America cannot win a war against China in the Chinese periphery. In fact, it would likely lose quite quickly. With its huge arsenals of precision-guided surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missiles, a space-based constellation of navigation and targeting satellites, and now the largest navy in the world, China is well aware of this fact. And it is preparing accordingly.

General Hinote went on to say that China’s standing war plans are built around a Taiwan scenario. If the U.S. doesn’t change course, and China wins, America would have no choice but to accept China’s conquest of its ally.

The U.S. Navy is still the most powerful in the world. But history shows that with the right strategy, the less-fancied naval power can come out on top... read more, click the link

Iran Using Advanced Centrifuge Underground
Iran Using Advanced Centrifuge Underground
Iran is continuing to violate the 2015 nuclear deal in a bid to pressure Biden and Europe.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (iaea) confirmed on March 15 that Iran has started enriching uranium at its underground Natanz nuclear facility using the advanced IR-4 centrifuge. This latest move by Iran is yet another violation of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (jcpoa) nuclear deal in a bid to increase pressure on Joe Biden to make the first move in negotiations.

When Iran’s above-ground advanced centrifuge facility at Natanz was destroyed by an explosion on July 2, 2020, the ayatollahs ordered for the facility to be rebuilt—this time, underground. Experts at the time estimated it would take one to two years. Yet a mere eight months later, the new Natanz facility is up and running.

After the July explosion, Iran began moving three cascades, or clusters, of various models of advanced centrifuges from an above-ground plant at Natanz to its below-ground fuel enrichment plant (fep). Iran began the enrichment process underground with its advanced IR-2 centrifuges, yet the nuclear deal only allows Iran to enrich uranium using its first generation IR-1 centrifuges. According to the Nuclear Threat Initiative, the IR-2 is believed to have an enrichment output that is four times greater than the IR-1.

Now, Iran is also using IR-4 machines. “On 15 March 2021, the agency verified that Iran began feeding the cascade of 174 IR-4 centrifuges already installed at fep with natural UF6,” the iaea reported. Natural UF6 refers to uranium hexafluoride, which is the form of uranium that is fed into centrifuges for enrichment. While the IR-4 is not very different from the IR-2, it is still four times more efficient than the IR-1 centrifuge.

“In summary,” the report continues, “as of March 15, Iran was using 5,060 IR-1 centrifuges installed in 30 cascades, 522 IR-2m centrifuges installed in three cascades, and 174 IR-4 centrifuges installed in one cascade to enrich natural UF6 up to 5 percent U-235 at fep.” The 5 percent U-235 refers to the fissile purity of the uranium. Under the 2015 nuclear deal, Iran was allowed to purify uranium only up to 3.67 percent. In November, Iran was enriching uranium at 4.5 percent at Natanz. Now it is up to 5 percent. At the Fordo nuclear facility, Iran is enriching up to 20 percent purity.

This aggressive behavior from Iran is getting Europe’s attention.

Simulation software: protecting organisations during the cyber war


CYBERWAR IS IMMINENT


Hackers around the world are looking for ways to black out the Internet, disrupt supply chains, and sow chaos.

It is a well-known proverb that generals always fight the last war. During World War i, millions died because generals used old trench-warfare tactics against deadly new weapons. And during World War ii, fighting the last war became even more of a problem when Germany conquered Europe using blitzkrieg tactics. So the question is: What new and innovative weapons and tactics will be used in the next world war?

Kevin Mandia, ceo of cybersecurity company FireEye, told Axios on hbo that any future real-world conflict between the United States and an adversary would likely involve a debilitating cyberattack. “The next conflict where the gloves come off in cyber, the American citizen will be dragged into it, whether they want to be or not,” he said. “Apps won’t work. Appliances may not work. People don’t even know all the things they depend on. All of a sudden, the supply chain starts getting disrupted because computers don’t work.”

As ceo of the company that uncovered the SolarWinds hack that breached the networks of several federal agencies—including the National Nuclear Security Administration—Mandia knows what he is talking about. In addition to warning about the devastating effects of the supply chain disruption that would occur if computers stopped working, he also warned about how even small countries could pose a threat to America.

“There’s no written document on what the rules are,” he said. “And I don’t know if you will get people to agree to rules on espionage because of the asymmetry where most countries can’t beat us with tanks, can’t beat us with airplanes. But in cyber, maybe that’s where they can make investments and beat us.”

Last year, Internet users were reminded just how reliant they are on companies like Google when Silicon Valley suffered a major outage for an hour. Services including Calendar, Gmail, Hangouts, Maps and YouTube all crashed. The outage was not the result of a cyberattack, but it still illustrates what a cyberattack on Silicon Valley could do. Shutting down a company like Google would bring the U.S. economy to a screeching halt.

The Chinese and Russian governments have been gathering information for years that could disrupt North American critical infrastructure like power plants, chemical factories and air-traffic control systems. In 2013, the security firm Mandiant detailed allegations in a 60-page report that China’s military had hacked into a Canadian firm that makes switches and other gear for oil and gas pipelines. In 2018, the Trump administration accused Russia of an operation to hack the U.S. energy grid and other critical infrastructure.

Counterintelligence specialists typically list Russia, China and Cuba as the top cyber threats to the United States, but Germany also has battalions of world-class hackers who could pose a threat to America.

Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry reported on the threat of cyberwarfare in 1995 when the public was dimly aware of how vulnerable a computer-run society could be.

He emphasized a statement by intelligence analyst Joseph DeCourcy: “Computer dependence is the Western world’s Achilles’ heel, and within a few years, this weakness could be tested to the full.

China Plans a ‘Polar Silk Road’


The frigid Arctic has been relatively free of geopolitical struggles. But that is changing.

China will build a “Polar Silk Road” and work to develop both the Arctic and Antarctic regions, Beijing announced in a new 2021–2025 “five-year plan” published on March 5.

The Chinese will “participate in pragmatic cooperation in the North Pole,” the draft of the plan said, and improve the nation’s “ability to participate in the protection and utilization of the South Pole.”

The plan includes the development of what China calls the Transpolar Sea Route, which would pass through the center of the Arctic Ocean and stretch only a few miles south of the North Pole itself.

Historically, the frigid Arctic was relatively free of the geopolitical struggles among world powers that have beset most other regions. But in recent decades, due to thawing ice and improving technology, this has begun to change. China’s borders do not extend into the Arctic, but it obtained observer status in the Artic Council in 2013 and has become increasingly focused on the region in recent years.

In 2018, the Chinese Communist Party published a white paper outlining the nation’s Arctic policy for the first time. The document mentioned the desire to tap into lucrative resources and develop faster new shipping routes through the region.

At the time, a Polar Silk Road was viewed as a tangential add-on to the Belt and Road Initiative, whose aim is to link Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Africa on a network of road, rail and shipping passages. But now that the idea is enshrined into the 2021–2025 five-year plan, its status is considerably elevated. The plan now has a place among the major aims and aspirations in China’s Belt and Road Initiative and its general national strategy.

If the goals are realized, China will not only enrich itself by tapping into immense resource wealth at both poles, but also better connect itself to Russia and other nations.

The Trumpet carefully watches China’s expanding global reach and increasing power because the trend bears significance in light of Bible prophecy. Isaiah 23 discusses a “mart of nations” that will arise in modern times as an economic juggernaut. One of the leaders in the “mart of nations” will be a nation Isaiah refers to as Chittim, an ancient name for modern-day China. Also in a lead role will be Tyre, a city that refers to the commercial center of modern Europe.

Isaiah 23 and Ezekiel 27 show that these two powers, along with Russia, Japan and others, will together control global trade for a brief duration. Deuteronomy 28:52 makes clear that this trade partnership will operate to America’s detriment.

Artificial Intelligence Will Transform Warfare


Artificial Intelligence Will Transform Warfare


What happens when computers start generating battle plans too complicated to comprehend?

In wartime, hiding your battle plan from the enemy is vitally important. The famed Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu knew the importance of concealing his long-term war strategy, and wrote: “All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.” For over two millennia, generals have studied Sun Tzu’s writings in hopes of being able to outmaneuver their enemies.

But what happens when computers start producing strategies too complex for a person to comprehend?

Ever since a supercomputer beat the legendary chess master Garry Kasparov in 1997, strategist have pondered the military applications of artificial intelligence algorithms. Unlike natural intelligence—which involves consciousness, emotion and the ability to make original choices—artificial intelligence makes preprogrammed decisions based on the variables fed into the machine. But the sheer number of variables a machine-learning algorithm can process is vast beyond what a human mind can comprehend.

That is why the United States Army War College is studying how artificial intelligence may change warfare by generating battle strategies too complex for a single human mind to comprehend. “I’m not talking about killer robots,” said Prof. Andrew Hill in 2019, during the War College’s first-ever chair of strategic leadership. “The issue is what happens once humans start taking military advice—or even orders—from machines.”

When machine-learning algorithms start producing war strategies, will soldiers trust a computer to guide their moves like a driver following a satellite-based navigation system? Or will they reject the potential for a superhuman cyberbattle strategy in favor of reliance on some other type of guidance system?

Fighting China

In its quest to remain the world’s superpower, the United States has invested a lot of money into artificial intelligence programs. But America may not remain the world leader in artificial intelligence for long.

China’s State Council announced in 2017 that it intended to lead the world in artificial intelligence by 2030, and China is already filing more artificial intelligence patents than any other country. In 2019, there were 1,189 artificial intelligence research firms in China—about half as many as in the United States, but more than any other nation. Many of these firms specialize in speech, image, and video recognition technology, since China uses artificial intelligence as a dystopian tool of mass surveillance as well as a military tool.

On the military front, Chinese artificial intelligence research largely revolves around the development of automated weapons systems. And its technological progress has both the United States and European Union deeply concerned. “Strategically, both the U.S. and the EU are concerned about China, so they need a tech policy that acknowledges a very aggressive position that China has taken in AI,” Marc Rotenberg, director of the Center on AI and Digital Policy at the Michael Dukakis Institute, told Politico.

Elected officials from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean met at an EU parliamentary hearing on March 1 to lay the groundwork for future cooperation against China. “Nations that do not share our commitment to democratic values are racing to be the leaders in AI and set the rules for the world,” said Rep. Robin Kelly, who has championed U.S. national strategy on artificial intelligence. “We cannot allow this to happen.”

Europe Holds First Live-Fire Cyber Exercise




Preparing for the wars of the future

The European Defense Agency (eda) held Europe’s first live-fire cyber exercise, according to a European Union press release on February 19. Over 200 cyber experts from 17 nations practiced defending European military assets from cyberattacks during the two-day event hosted by Estonia. European nations are increasing their efforts to prepare for the future of warfare, in which cyberwarfare plays a major role. Much of this is being funded by Europe’s coronavirus relief package.

To make the exercise as real as possible, cyberattacks happened in real time, professional attackers from several countries launched their attacks together, and the nations tasked with defending against them were not warned when the attacks would come or what type they would be.

Several military assets served as targets during the exercise. These included a drone control system and a network for communicating with satellites.

The eda wrote that “the entire exercise … used military planning and strategy similar to what is used in real cyber military operations.” It was designed to “push participants out of their comfort zone, asking them to use all tools, processes and procedures possible, even those not directly at hand in the exercise platform.”

Participants focused on learning to work together to counteract cyberattacks. Strategies and knowledge regarding cyberattacks are often shared between civilian organizations. However, the armed forces of different nations rarely share these, given the sensitivity of the information. The exercises, therefore, represent a major deepening of cooperation among European armies.

According to Estonia’s minister of defense, the exercises “will strengthen the resilience of the European societies and Europe as a whole.” More will be held at a later date.

The number of civilian and military devices connected to the Internet and satellite networks is constantly growing. Possibilities for a cyberattack increase accordingly. Many militaries around the world now have a formal cybercommand in addition to the regular armed forces. Europe’s three largest military powers (France, Germany and Italy) all have personnel dedicated to this field. Cyberwarfare in support of armed conflict has become more common since Russia’s invasion of Georgia in 2008. Today, it is expected.

Knowledge gained practicing cyberattacks is dual-use. Though usually labeled as defensive, it can also be employed in the other direction.

The EU has the necessary infrastructure to be a cyber superpower. In many ways, it already is. European data protection rules affect the entire world. Frankfurt, Germany, is home to the world’s largest Internet network exchange. This gigantic communications hub serves Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North America. The German company that manages Frankfurt’s exchange is building similar infrastructure in the United States.

Russia and India Strengthen Strategic Partnership



Russia and India have taken several significant steps strengthening military ties in recent weeks, in a way that reveals how one major obstacle to forming a pan-Asian military alliance will be overcome.

On February 3, tass news agency reported that around 100 Indian military specialists arrived in Russia to begin training for the operation of the S-400 Triumf missile air defense systems. The highly sophisticated S-400 was described by the Economist recently as “one of the best air-defense systems currently made.” Capable of striking aircraft and incoming missiles midflight, it is the defense system of choice for Russia, Turkey and China.

The United States imposed sanctions on both Turkey and China under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act for purchasing the system from Russia. And despite a warning from the Trump administration in 2018 that a similar purchase may invite U.S. sanctions, India went ahead with a $5 billion deal to purchase five S-400 units.

The U.S. has been determined to foster deeper ties with India, mainly as a means of countering China. And after agreeing to a $3 billion defense deal last year, Indo-U.S. relations appeared to be strengthening. But India’s S-400 purchase, and the recent arrival of Indian specialists in Russia, indicate that India is more committed to its relationship with Russia than with the U.S.

It is not difficult to see why. All together, Russia has supplied some 80 percent of India’s military equipment, and .... READ MORE, click the above link


German Military Receives Another Record Boost



For the last decade, the German military has been under-financed. Yet at the same time, Germany’s economy and industry have grown every year. Even in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Germany has spent a record sum on its military while other nations have had to consider cutbacks.

In its recent report to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Germany stated that its projected defense spending for 2021 amounts to $63.9 billion. This represents 3.2 percent increase over the previous year. As of December 2020, 265,000 men and women, uniformed and civilian, were employed by the Bundeswehr. A total of 183,777 professional, temporary and voluntary soldiers serve in the Bundeswehr.

Yet this boost in Germany’s spending is unique. “All U.S. presidents over the past decades have advocated more defense spending by Europe’s nato partners,” nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in an interview with German news agency dpa last year. At a nato summit in Brussels in 2018, then United States President Donald Trump didn’t rule out an American withdrawal from the alliance if members did not reach the goal of spending 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense. German defense spending in 2020 was equivalent to 1.6 percent of its gdp, according to the latest nato calculations, up from 1.3 percent in 2019.

But few realize that Germany’s military strength does not lie in its numbers but in innovation.

“Though Germany isn’t a military heavyweight, the overall picture is strong,” we wrote in “Forging a Superpower.” “Its military budget is the seventh highest in the world. This rank could suddenly rise if Germany commits to rearm—for which its capacity is mighty.”

For decades, Germany has been among the world’s leading arms exporters and has established a global arms industry. At the same time, it has maintained a comparatively small core army. Due to these factors, it has been able to invest in military innovation.

For example, on January 28, the Bundeswehr ordered laser weapons from the German arms industry. Very few nations have the ability to order such technology from their own industries.

So while it is true the German military has been under-financed, its arms industry, in close cooperation with European partners, has grown steadily. What’s more, for decades Germany has had strategic insight into nato operations. It has had time to study U.S. weapons technology.

A casual glance at Germany’s military reveals only a ......  READ MORE, click the above link

Is India No Longer Worried About War?



A close look at the numbers reveals a dogged determination to boost military power.

India announced on February 1 that its defense budget for 2021 will increase by only 1 percent, surprising analysts who anticipated a sharper increase because of mounting threats. But a closer look shows that India remains deeply concerned about war—and is spending in anticipation of it.

India has been embroiled in a violent dispute with China at the Ladakh border since last June. Thousands of soldiers, tanks and artillery were deployed to the border as a result. This came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi had declared a desire to modernize the military.

However, India’s defense budget only rose from $47 billion last year to $47.4 billion this year. This fractional increase has, according to Bloomberg, cast “doubt” on India’s seriousness about military investment and modernization. But a look at the budget details reveals Delhi’s intent.

The majority of the budget used to be devoted to pensions, personnel, infrastructure and repairs. Now the allocations for these have shrunk, while the portion of the budget allocated for weapons purchases has soared by 18 percent.

This maneuvering is an impressive display of economic nous, allowing India to dramatically advance its weapons program at little extra cost.

India’s defense minister personally thanked Mr. Modi for this massive increase, which marked “the highest ever increase in capital outlay for defense in 15 years.”

‘Time Bomb’: China Authorizes Coast Guard to Fire on Foreign Ships



German Military Developing Laser Weapons With Rheinmetall and MBDA


The German government has signed a joint venture with mbda Germany and Rheinmetall Waffe Munition to develop a laser weapon for use on boats. Rheinmetall wrote in its press release on January 28: “The contract is a logical continuation of the successfully tested functional laser weapon models of recent years and combines the experience gained to create one of the most ambitious projects in the field of laser weapon development in Europe” (Trumpet translation throughout).

mbda stated in 2019, “Compared to other countries, … our two companies possess extraordinary capabilities. Lasers offer new tactical possibilities on land, at sea and in the air. In partnership with the German Navy, we want to press ahead with this new technology.” In February 2019, Rheinmetall successfully tested a laser weapon station.

“Lasers engage targets at the speed of light, with high precision and the lowest possible collateral damage,” Rheinmetall stated. “[I]t is a new generation of defense systems.” Laser weapons are considered a game-changer, enabling instant, high-precision strikes on specific components of the enemy target, leaving it defenseless yet intact.

A demonstrator with this capability is scheduled to be tested under near-operational conditions by the end of 2021. Doris Laarmann, head of Business Development Laser at mbda Germany, said: “The contract is an important step toward an operational high-energy laser system. Both companies will use their respective strengths to make the project a success for the German Navy. The demonstrator will test important topics such as the interaction of sensors, command/weapon engagement system and the effector, as well as rules of engagement on board the frigate.”

Rheinmetall’s newsletter stated that the company “has been an internationally renowned center of excellence for weapons and ammunition systems since the beginning of its more than 130-year history and has also been active in the field of laser weapon systems for many years.”

German weapons manufacturers indeed have a long history. Most recently, they have been exporting weapons around the world, supplying wars abroad. But within that 130-year history, they have also supplied two world wars. Without companies like Rheinmetall, neither the German kaiser nor Adolf Hitler could have killed millions of people.

Yet Rheinmetall seems proud of that 130-year history.

These developments in Germany’s weapons industry are striking when you consider its history. “Until the last 10 to 15 years, the Bundeswehr couldn’t fire up a tank without being accused of starting World War iii,” we wrote in “Forging a Superpower.”

Many nations have weapons manufacturers. But what other nation has a history of starting massive wars like Germany? Consider that some of the bloodiest conflicts in history centered around Germany: the Thirty Years’ War, the Wars of German Unification, World War i and World War ii.

Antifa and Other Left-Wing Extremist Groups Breed Violence in Germany


Left-wing extremism reached a record high in Germany last year, according to data released this month by the Federal Ministry of the Interior (bmi). The number of violent crimes motivated by left-wing extremism rose from 1,052 in 2019 to 1,359 in 2020—an increase of 29 percent. In total, 9,973 left-wing, extremist-motivated crimes were recorded in 2020 (9,849 in 2019). The indication is that political movements are becoming increasingly violent. In 2019, left-wing extremist crimes had risen by 40 percent over 2018.

Linda Teuteberg, a Free Democrat in the Interior Ministry, told Welt am Sonntag: “In addition to the dynamic development in right-wing extremism and Islamism, the trend in left-wing extremism toward more and more acts of violence is also worrying. There is no ethical superiority of any variant of violent extremism, and any trivialization of criminal action as activism is forbidden.”

Last year, the intelligence agency BfV observed a change in how the criminal actions are executed. Instead of “mass militancy,” we are seeing more and more “clandestine small group actions.” The hatred is no longer expressed toward institutions only but now also on “a personal level.” The persecution of individuals is becoming increasingly popular.

Months ago, BfV revealed that at least 47 of the more than 100 Antifa groups nationwide are now being observed and classified as “extremist.”

Antifa stands for Anti-Fascist Action. “The members of the Antifa scene are united in their more or less intensive struggle against people and activities they perceive as ‘fascist,’” Die Welt noted. But in “fighting against fascism,” these radical leftists have established their own terror regime.

In 2019, German authorities identified 33,500 people as left-wing extremists; 9,200 of which are considered “violent” left-wing extremists. According to Der Spiegel sources, Germany’s domestic secret service categorized 32,080 people as potential right-wing extremists in 2019, up from 24,100 in 2018. This estimate includes 7,000 supporters of the radical wing of the far-right party Alternative für Deutschland (AfD). According to the federal office’s annual report, the number of “violent” right-wing extremists was 13,000 in 2019. (The numbers have likely increased in 2020, but reports have not yet been published.)

The Joebama administration is using executive orders to implement its far-left agenda on “racial equity.” During his first week in office, Biden signed, though likely didn’t read, 37 executive orders, the most of any president in recent memory, perhaps in history. In October 2020, before Biden was installed as president, he told voters that there are things you “can’t do by executive order unless you’re a dictator. We’re a democracy. We need consensus.” So far, Biden’s fake presidency is functioning on executive decree alone.

China’s Most Dangerous Maneuver Ever Against America

China’s Most Dangerous Maneuver Ever Against America


Americans are realizing that China is a dangerous threat. But you probably won’t guess its deadliest anti-U.S. stroke.

China has become one of the world’s most aggressive and dangerous powers. Its leaders clearly have the ambition to rule the world! And China’s danger and ambition is multiplied by its remarkably close partnership with Russia.

But the biggest problem China poses is not generally mentioned. This is something that American politicians, especially, want to forget. Perhaps even the American people want to forget it because they share in the blame for letting this maneuver happen. This problem may prove to be the most insidious move by China against America in history. And it will plague the United States in the near future!

I’m talking about China’s takeover of the Panama Canal.

Economic Power

Carving a channel through Central America was a goal for centuries. But it wasn’t until 1880 that France made the first concerted attempt under Ferdinand de Lesseps, the French entrepreneur who had completed the Suez Canal. The French spent the modern equivalent of $6 billion, only to abandon it after disease and accidents killed more than 22,000 laborers. Building an interoceanic canal appeared impossible.

But in 1903, United States President Theodore Roosevelt convinced the Panamanians to declare independence from Colombia and signed a landmark treaty with them. America paid France $40 million for its equipment and excavations and paid the Panamanians an initial payment of $10 million. Then the Americans went down and started digging!

Roosevelt was the first president to really see that America should be a world power. And he governed as if America was a world power, not just a colony of Europe.

After 10 years of innovation and backbreaking toil, hundreds of millions of American taxpayer dollars, and losing over 5,600 lives themselves, the Americans succeeded where so many others had failed. They turned the 400-year-old dream of slicing apart North America and South America and mingling the waters from the Atlantic and Pacific oceans into reality.

Rather than sailing 8,000 miles around the dangerous cape at the end of South America, sailors could now transit the 51-mile canal in less than half the time.

Australia: A Warning to the World

The consequences of growing too cozy with China



For the last three decades, the world has been drawing closer to China. Of all major Western nations, Australia has gotten closer than any other. And now it is realizing the fearsome consequences of that embrace.

It may be too late for Australians to pull out of the relationship. But their fate is a powerful warning to the rest of the world.

Money, Money, Money

It started with a business relationship.

After growing at an astonishing annual rate of around 10 percent for some 30 years, China is now, by some measures, the world’s largest economy. It takes a massive amount of raw materials to fuel such growth, making Australia a perfect trade partner.

In 2017, one third of Australia’s exports went to China, and nearly a quarter of its imports came from China.

Soon the economic relationship went beyond trade. China started buying up huge tracts of Australia. Chinese companies own more than 1 percent of Australia’s land area, including coal mines, energy companies, cattle farms, tourist resorts and even tens of thousands of private homes.

By the end of 2019, China was officially Australia’s ninth-largest foreign investor. However, much Chinese investment is also funneled through Hong Kong, Australia’s fifth-largest investor.

The flourishing economic relationship affected other areas of Australian life. In 2015, a Chinese company closely tied to China’s Communist government signed a 99-year lease of Australia’s northernmost port in Darwin. The port is vital to the Australian military and also hosts a United States military base. Chinese companies also signed contracts for a 99-year lease on the port of Newcastle, a share in the port of Melbourne, and a 100-year lease on Western Australia’s Merriden airport.

All this trade necessitated a close political relationship. In 2014 the Australian government invited President Xi Jinping to address Parliament.

Undercover

But this political relationship developed a dark side. China is being credibly accused of bribing Australian politicians and interfering with Australian elections.

In 2017, Australia’s public television station, abc, released a report showing that billionaires affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party were donating millions to Australia political parties and building close relationships with Australia’s political elites. In 2018 Charles Sturt University ethics professor Clive Hamilton published an explosive book titled Silent Invasion. It documents the governing Chinese Communist Party’s infiltration of Australian corporations, universities, government and even religions.

Hamilton warns that China is turning Australia into a puppet state. China, he says, has received a wave of “billionaires with shady histories and tight links to the party, media owners creating Beijing mouthpieces, ‘patriotic’ students brainwashed from birth, and professionals marshalled into pro-Beijing associations set up by the Chinese Embassy.” He alleges that Chinese spies coordinated a penetration into all levels of Chinese society.

In the aftermath of these allegations, Australian Sen. Sam Dastyari resigned, and the nation had to change its rules on politicians receiving donations from abroad.

Other politicians appear to have received thinly disguised bribes. Special Envoy Andrew Robb, for example, was the man who signed off on China leasing Port Darwin for a century. And what was waiting for him immediately upon leaving political office? An estimated $2 million plus expenses over three years—at the company to whom he had just leased the port.

But Chinese influence on Australian governance has been even more aggressive than all this. Three months prior to Australia’s 2019 elections, someone hacked the computer systems of the Australian Parliament and all major Australian political parties. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said at the time that the attack was “sophisticated” and probably the work of a foreign government.

It has since emerged that this sophisticated foreign government was China.

Trade War

Chinese infiltration and aggression has caused Australians to change their position toward their large, wealthy northern neighbor.

The turnaround started gradually. In 2016 the Australian government blocked Chinese investment in the nation’s energy infrastructure over national security concerns. In 2018 they blocked Huawei Technologies from developing Australia’s 5G network.

But the real break came this year. Australia tried to hold China responsible for the spread of covid-19, and conducted investigations into the origins of the virus.

China reacted with fury. The Chinese Communist Party placed tariffs on Australian barley, wheat and coal. They found a sudden increase of “defects” in Australian copper, cotton, lobster, sugar and timber. It blocked imports of Australian lamb for fear of covid contamination, while meat from countries with much higher rates of covid sail on through. About 40 percent of Australian wine exports went to China. In November, the party imposed massive tariffs as high as 200-plus percent on that wine. Week by week, China is ratcheting up the economic damage with more tariffs.

Other strikes by China have been more below-the-belt. On Nov. 30, 2020, an official Twitter account of China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs posted a fake photo showing a grinning Australian soldier holding a gory knife at the throat of an Afghan child with the caption, “Don’t be afraid, we are coming to bring you peace!”

Australian inquiries into its troops’ conduct in Afghanistan have found no evidence of Australian soldiers killing children. But China is spreading the lie—an accusation that could easily lead to a terrorist attack against Australia.

As the trade and political skirmish has worsened, China has issued Australia a 14-point ultimatum. Australians can go back to buying and selling with the Chinese the way they used to only if the Australian government opens up the country to Chinese investment and stops criticizing the governing Chinese Communist Party.

How will Australia hold up under this pressure? Chinese infiltration has been so thorough that Australia is sailing into a trade war divided. Some of Australia’s own top politicians actually favor China!

Divided We Fall

Some of this is surely from bribery and ..... READ MORE, click the image

No Evidence of Voter Fraud? Americans Aren’t Buying It








00:30 Voter Fraud (14 minutes)

The U.S. Senate held a hearing on Wednesday to discuss voter fraud in the November election. More senators are starting to see the fraud in plain sight. Will anyone have the courage to fix it?

14:00 ‘Deep State’ Protects China (15 minutes)

The director of National Intelligence is supposed to provide a classified report on the election 45 days after it occurs. This year, that report is being delayed because members of the intelligence agencies are afraid to disclose China’s role in the election.



How Connected Is Communist China to Dominion Voting Systems?
The relationship is strong enough that America’s election may have been changed by foreign nationals.

Dominion Voting Systems has been under scrutiny ever since attorney Sidney Powell claimed to have “statistical evidence” that its machines stole votes from United States President Donald Trump. On December 13, Powell told the Epoch Times that every voting machine used in America’s elections should be impounded and reviewed for forensic analysis. And if America’s court system refuses to issue such an order, Powell believes President Trump should use his 2018 executive order on foreign interference to get the job done.

“[G]iven the level of foreign interference we can demonstrate … it’s more than sufficient to trigger the president’s executive order from 2018 that gives him all kinds of power—to do everything from seize assets, to freeze things, demand the impoundment of the machines,” she said on the American Thought Leaders program. “Under the emergency powers, he could even appoint a special prosecutor to look into this, which is exactly what needs to happen. Every voting machine in the country should be impounded right now. There’s frankly more than enough criminal probable cause to justify that. For anybody who’s willing to address the law and the facts purely on the basis of truth, and not politics or corporate greed or global wealth.”

When enacted, the executive order Powell referenced gives the director of national intelligence the power to conduct “an assessment of any information indicating that a foreign government, or any person acting as an agent” of a foreign government tried to interfere in a U.S. election. An increasing amount of evidence is emerging that foreign sponsors used Dominion Voting Systems to shift votes to Joe Biden.

U.S., Israel Approve F-35 Sale to U.A.E. In search of peace, Israel is allowing the U.S. to arm a potential enemy with sophisticated weapons of war.

The United States Senate voted on December 9 to reject a pair of resolutions aimed at stopping the Trump administration’s $23 billion sale of armaments to the United Arab Emirates. After the Trump administration officially notified Congress of the sale last month, a few Democratic senators and one Republican senator attempted to block the deal, saying that one of America’s newest and most sophisticated warplanes should not be entrusted to the U.A.E.

The four resolutions submitted by senators Chris Murphy, Bob Menendez and Rand Paul, according to the Times of Israel, were rejected by the Senate in a vote that split mostly along party lines. The first resolution aimed at blocking the sale of 18 advanced Reaper drone systems fell 50-46; the measures aimed at stopping the sale of 50 F-35 stealth fighter jets was rejected 49-47.

The Biden-Harris transition team announced last night that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, was under federal investigation. Within minutes of the announcement, it seemed, every major leftwing media outlet started reporting details about Hunter’s alleged crimes. We now know there have been three separate federal investigations into Hunter dating back to 2018. Less than two months ago, these revelations were strictly forbidden—censored by Big Tech and the propaganda media. Now the Biden family is fair game. What is going on?

AUSTRALIA & CHINA - THE DRAGON & THE DOVE

Australia’s only path to victory in the trade war with China

O

n Monday, November 30, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Zhao Lijan posted an image on the government department’s official Twitter feed. The fake photo portrays a grinning Australian soldier holding a bloody knife to the throat of an Afghan child. The caption reads, “Don’t be afraid, we are coming to bring you peace!”

The tweet immediately drew condemnation from Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison who called the image “repugnant.” The prime minister demanded an apology from the Chinese government.

The image is the latest in a series of tweets from Zhao in response to Australia’s inquiry into the conduct of its soldiers during the Afghan war. Rumors of Australian soldiers killing children were never substantiated in the four-year inquiry or report.

The tweet marks a new low in diplomatic relations between the two nations. China once veiled its criticisms behind state media; now its officials are openly provoking Australia with cheap taunts and jibes. Such antics should not be casually dismissed.

Admit it or not, Australia is in the midst of a trade war with its largest trade partner. And it is losing—badly. This is what happens when doves try to befriend dragons.

The Downfall of the Relationship

Maintaining a cordial relationship with a human-rights-violating nation like China was never going to be easy. The friendship between the Australian dove and the Chinese dragon morphed dramatically when China began gobbling up resources in the 1980s. Urbanization and free-market reform saw the dragon quickly outgrow its dovish neighbor with an average gross domestic product growth of 9.5 percent until 2018. By then, the unequal trading partners were far from eye-to-eye.

The deterioration in the Sino-Australian relationship began in earnest back in 2017. At the time, Australian media blew the lid on a coordinated Chinese campaign to buy influence in the political establishment. The reporting led to the resignation of Australian Sen. Sam Dastyari. Australia also adopted its first rules against accepting political donations from overseas. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said Australia had “stood up.” But the damage was done. Australia had already signed on with China in lucrative 100-year port loans and cheap trade deals. The dragon had what it wanted.

The friendship continued to sour in 2018 when the Australian government blocked China’s Huawei Technologies from bidding on contracts to develop Australia’s 5G network. The company was deemed a “national security threat.” In 2016, Australia had moved to block Chinese investment in Australia’s power supply for similar reasons. Officials have also expressed concern over a reliance on Chinese transformers to maintain the power grid.

China has perceived the moves as an effort to stoke “yellow peril,” a term coined in 19th-century America when Asian immigrants arrived to capitalize on the gold rush. But Australia’s fears are not based in xenophobia. The reality is that China wields a superior economic, political and military arsenal on Australia’s doorstep.

The final act that brought the thin facade of peaceful economic cooperation crashing to the ground came at the start of this year. Australia dared to spearhead an investigation into the origins of covid-19. Canberra had the gumption to call for Beijing to hold itself to account for the spread of the coronavirus.

The dove pecked at the dragon one too many times. Chinese retaliation began in earnest. The world’s most one-sided trade war began.

Total Economic War

First, China discouraged students and tourists from traveling to Australia, a major blow to higher education and the tourism industry. China has supplied over 100,000 students in the past, and a horde of tourists descend from China every year.

Then came a rash of tariffs: barley, wheat and coal. A large number of meat processors were banned from sending meat to China. Then lobster, sugar, copper, cotton and timber were found by Chinese import officials to have “defects.” All were ordered back to Australia or were left to turn fetid on a Chinese runway. Bear in mind that each product represents multimillion-dollar or even billion-dollar industries.

Coal is another trade resource that has been targeted. While China looks to increase its import quota next year, it will not be from Australia. Australian coal has been unofficially banned since October. The Chinese say Australia has failed environmental standards.

Last week, wine was targeted. China concluded that Australian wine-makers had been dumping cheap wine on China since 2015. The result was anti-dumping duties ranging from 107.1 to 212.1 percent. This is an effective killing-blow to the industry’s exporting market. Treasury Wine Estates, for instance, was hit with a 169.3 percent tariff. It had to suspend trading on the share market as share plunged to just 13 percent. China is an $850 million market for wine exporters—taking 40 percent of Australia’s overseas shipments.

All these moves are a convenient sidestepping of the free-trade agreement signed between the two nations and a clear violation of World Trade Organization law.

And it isn’t over yet.

There is talk of iron ore being on Beijing’s hit list. Long considered a necessity for Chinese expansion, Australia’s iron ore could be on the way out. China is currently looking into alternatives in Africa and South America. Eighty percent of Australia’s iron ore currently goes to China. It has long been seen as Australia’s trump card—a way for Australia to punch back in the economic dispute. But China may find a suitable alternative or fall back on its vast stockpiles, making iron ore no longer Australia’s weapon, but China’s.

China buys more than a third of Australia’s exports, and that is why Australia cannot win the current trade war. That is the reason Australia fears Beijing. Australia needs China; China doesn’t need Australia.

China can source its goods elsewhere. Maybe at a lower quality or a higher price, but it is available. Australia, on the other hand, doesn’t have another China, its largest trading partner, a gigantic market. None of Australia’s allies are in any position to fill the void. The United States is crippled with internal division. Self-induced covid-related economic wounds make intervention from any Western nation an impossibility. A hodgepodge of nations in Southeast Asia—many of which are already beholden to China—couldn’t fill the void.

A Silly Dove

Australia is fighting a war it cannot win. In the midst of this lopsided battle, it continues to blunder. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has signed up to China’s Belt and Road Initiative, which is a debt trap for nations throughout Australasia and the South Pacific and a weapon for Chinese expansion. Andrews signed on despite the protests of the federal government.

EU Enters Strategic Partnership With ASEAN


Two of the world’s largest trading blocs are moving closer together.

Foreign ministers for the European Union and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (asean) met for their annual summit on December 1, where they upgraded their relationship from “dialogue” to “strategic partnership.”

“As close economic partners, we will stand up for safe and open trade routes and a free and fair trade,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said after the meeting. “Together, we represent more than a billion people and almost 25 percent of global economic power. Together, we have a strong voice in this world.” So far, no specific details on what the strategic partnership would entail have been given.

Both parties celebrated the announcement. The German Federal Foreign Office posted that the two blocs have “enjoyed almost 50 years of cooperation, which is now set to take on a new strategic dimension.” Gunner Weigand, managing director for Asia and the Pacific at the European Commission’s European External Action Service, tweeted that it was “not a routine meeting, but a historic step.”




Putin Accelerates Buildup of Russian Military Power

The Russian military is now more capable and lethal than at any time since the end of the Cold War—and Europe is taking note.

R

ussia’s military power was on glaring display in recent days with a milestone reached in warship modernization, three landmark missile launches, and a breakthrough in tactical weapons development.

On November 20, Moscow announced that 2020 set a record for the number of advanced vessels added to the Russian Navy. Gen. Mikhail Mizintsev, the head of the National Defense Control Center, said the nation has reached a new level of coordination between its various shipyards and military agencies. Their close cooperation has resulted in 35 submarines and warships being “laid down, floated out and accepted for service in the Navy this year.” The massive rollout equates to a 33 percent increase in the amount of advanced naval hardware—accomplished in just one year.

Russia also conducted three missile launches in recent days, showing a dramatic increase in its nuclear strike capacities. On November 23, the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy announced that its 885M Kazan nuclear submarine had struck a coastal target 620 miles away with a Kalibr cruise missile. The successful test marked one of the final hurdles the 64-man submarine needed to clear before officially joining the Russian Navy later this year.

Two days later, Russia’s newest corvette struck a sea target for the first time with a nuclear-capable Uranus missile. 

Macron Insists on an Independent European Defense


German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer wrote in a November 2 article for Politico, titled “Europe Still Needs America,” that demands for an independent European defense structure an “illusion.” French President Emmanuel Macron strongly disagreed, saying the two countries are working together to make the “illusion” a reality.

Kramp-Karrenbauer wrote, “No matter who is in the White House, we are in this together. … Illusions of European strategic autonomy must come to an end: Europeans will not be able to replace America’s crucial role as a security provider.”

Macron responded: “I profoundly disagree … with the opinion piece signed by the German minister of defense in Politico. I think that it is a historical misinterpretation.”



Meet the English Lord Running America’s Voting Systems

The United States election has shone a bright light on America’s voting system. One company that supplies voting machines is Smartmatic.

Smartmatic’s machines have been used in some of America’s most populous voting centers, including Los Angeles and Chicago. The company is a member of the Election Infrastructure Subsector Coordinating Council, a commission that coordinates with the Department of Homeland Security to ensure election security.

The company is owned by a holding company in the United Kingdom, sgo. For the last six years, chairman of the sgo board has been former Labour politician Lord Mark Malloch-Brown.

Who is the man so influential in a company intrinsic to America’s voting systems? And what are his connections?

Lord Malloch-Brown isn’t the only connection with the left. Peter Neffenger is the chairman of the Smartmatic U.S.A. board of directors—and he advises the Biden campaign.

From 1986 to 1994, Lord Malloch-Brown was the lead international partner for the public relations firm Sawyer-Miller Group. Here he helpd Cory Aquino beat Ferdinand Marcos in a key presidential race.

Describing Malloch-Brown’s contribution to the race, the Philippine Daily Inquirer wrote: “He said his final outstanding accomplishment during the Cory campaign was to produce an exit poll that indicated that she had won. It landed on the front page of the Inquirer and had a profound impact as it planted the idea that Aquino had won over Marcos, 55 percent to 45 percent” (June 29, 2015).

Georgia’s new Dominion Voting System was an absolute disaster during the June 9 primary. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that “human error, equipment failure and a complicated, multicomputer voting system combined to create chaos that left some voters waiting as long as eight hours to cast ballots.” Then on October 23, the same newspaper warned that the new electronic voting system was “vulnerable to cyberattacks.” The newspaper then exposed Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s inexplicable decision to weaken the system’s security measures. The many problems with the U.S. election in Georgia on November are now being exposed.

It’s Over, Say the Media
ITS OVER, SAY THE MEDIA!

00:30 The Transition Begins? (20 minutes)

The director of the General Services Administration began the process of transitioning the Biden team into the White House yesterday. Director Emily Murphy explained in a letter to Biden’s campaign that she doesn’t decide who the president is and is simply following procedure. Murphy also told them that she faced threats to her safety because she did not begin the transition earlier. This is all part of the battle plan for the radical left: intimidation, bullying and death threats. According to the media, the election is now over. Will the president fight on?

21:00 New York Times’ Conspiracy Theories (18 minutes)

Commentators have ridiculed and mocked Sidney Powell for raising the issue of foreign involvement in the U.S. voting systems. Powell has drawn attention to connections between U.S. voting companies and socialist countries. A host on Fox Business said this week that Powell was collecting every right-wing conspiracy she could find on the Internet. Where was the mockery when the New York Times ran this headline in 2006: “U.S. Investigates Voting Machines’ Venezuela Ties”?

Democrat leaders are preparing Americans for a better-than-normal Thanksgiving this year, including: eating dinner alone, video calling family members, speaking softly and wearing face masks!

Support for a Dictatorship Rises in East Germany

Support for a Dictatorship Rises in East Germany
Eastern Europe Sticks It to Brussels

Europe’s consensus politics paralyze the EU once again. And some are getting fed up with it.

Hungary and Poland vetoed a European Union-wide $887 billion covid-19 relief stimulus on November 16. They objected to a clause demanding that recipients of the stimulus adhere to the “rule of law.” Both countries originally agreed to the provisions of the stimulus in July, including the “rule of law” clause. However, Hungary and Poland claim that it is the EU that isn’t upholding its end of the bargain.

The prime minister of Slovenia, while not vetoing the stimulus, vocally supported Hungary’s and Poland’s stance.

Article 23 puts in place a way to discipline EU states found in violation of “the rule of law.” The problem is that Article 23 is vague; the European Council can deem just about anything it wants to be a violation of the rule of law. It gives a lot of power to the Council of EU leaders.

It could give the Council precedent to operate based on majority rulings. Currently, any decision the Council makes has to be unanimous.

This is making many East European leaders nervous. Many of them sponsor policies criticized by Brussels as being contrary to “European values.” They see this “rule of law” clause as a way for Brussels “eurocrats” to force their will on member states.

Polish Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro said, “The question is whether Poland … will be subject to political and institutionalized enslavement.” He called the clause “a pretext, but it is really an institutional, political enslavement, a radical limitation of sovereignty.”

“Some political groups … are openly threatening to use the instrument wrongly called ‘rule of law’ in order to discipline individual EU member states through a majority vote,” said Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa. Jansa is considered a strong ally of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

Where Is the Evidence That Clears Dominion and Smartmatic of Wrongdoing?


00:30 Evidence (14 minutes)

Democrats, Republicans and virtually every media outlet are appalled that President Donald Trump’s legal team would make accusations against companies and public officials without first presenting their evidence to the public. Republican Chris Christie said over the weekend that Trump’s lawyers are a “national embarrassment.” The criticisms are laughable when you consider what has been the Democrat media standard over the past four years. Congressman Adam Schiff, remember, said he saw evidence with his own eyes that proved President Trump was a Russian asset.

14:00 Sidney Powell (25 minutes)

According to media reports, the Trump campaign is distancing itself from attorney Sidney Powell. Apparently, Powell’s allegations of widespread voter fraud are even too crazy for Mr. Trump! In this segment, I talk about the case Powell is bringing to the public and why it has Democrats and Republicans worried. I also provide an update on the Trump campaign’s lawsuit in Pennsylvania.

39:00 Dominion Domination (15 minutes)

Over the past two decades, the largest voting companies in America have been involved in shadowy business dealings—many of which were not disclosed to the public. Official statements made by Dominion Voting Systems today are contradicted by statements it made just a few years ago.


 What Does the U.S. Constitution Say About the Election Crisis?

The rule of law is under attack in America. Evidence shows politicians are trying to transform the nation by emphasizing ends over means. Former United States federal prosecutor Sidney Powell claims to have evidence exposing large-scale voter fraud. During an interview with Fox Business, Powell said she had “staggering statistical evidence” that a leading voting machine firm, Dominion Voter Systems, stole votes from U.S. President Donald Trump.

“Well, I can hardly wait to put forth all the evidence we have collected on Dominion, starting with the fact it was created to produce altered voting results in Venezuela for Hugo Chávez and then shipped internationally to manipulate votes for purchase in other countries, including this one,” she told Lou Dobbs on November 13. “It was funded by money from Venezuela and Cuba, and China has a role in it also. So, if you want to talk about foreign election interference, we certainly have it now. We have staggering statistical evidence.”

China Forms World’s Largest Free-Trade Bloc

A new world order is being formed in Asia Pacific, and it excludes the U.S.

Fifteen Asian countries joined the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (rcep) on November 15. China began forging the pact with members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (asean) in 2012. Now, it emerges as the world’s biggest free-trade bloc.

The deal is an indicator of China’s growing influence in the region.

“Under the current global circumstances, the fact the rcep has been signed after eight years of negotiations brings a ray of light and hope amid the clouds,” said Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

Members of the pact include the 10 asean members—Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos—other Asia-Pacific countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea. The rcep will thus account for 29 percent of the world’s gross domestic product, while also making up nearly a third of the world’s population.

This also means that this new trade bloc is bigger than the nafta trade deal between the U.S., Mexico and Canada, and bigger than the European Union.

Germany Empowers Turkey’s Navy

Greece has twice sent official requests to Germany, asking that it stop selling arms to Turkey. Thus far, it has received no response.

A classified document revealed in June by the German Press Agency (dpa) said that Turkey has been the number one recipient of German arms exports for the second year in a row.

In October 2019, Turkey invaded Syria with a force that used German-built tanks. In the aftermath, Germany was pressured into denying Turkey weapons of war that could be used in the crisis. But maritime goods are largely exempt from the ban.

These Turkey-bound German arms exports are highly controversial in light of the conflict between Greece and Turkey. “The main focus of the recent criticism is the construction of six Class-214 submarines, which will be assembled in Turkey with the major participation of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems,” Germany’s Handelsblatt noted. “The federal government had already approved the delivery of components in 2009 and secured the export with a so-called Hermes guarantee of $2.9 billion. Back then, relations between the two countries were much more relaxed” (Trumpet translation throughout).

Why is Germany supporting a power that is destabilizing much of the Middle East?

German Navy Officers to Be Deployed With the Australian Navy


Germany will deploy Navy officers with the Australian Navy and will send a frigate to patrol the Indo-Pacific region, Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer announced on November 5. Germany is becoming more involved in the Indo-Pacific to manage China’s influence in the region.

But should Australia trust Germany for its protection?

“We believe that Germany needs to mark its position in the region,” Kramp-Karrenbauer stated. “China is an important trading partner for Germany and we have strong economic ties which are in the interest of both sides. At the same time, we do not turn a blind eye on unequal investment conditions, aggressive appropriation of intellectual property, state-subsidized distortion of competition, or attempts to exert influence by means of loans and investments.”

The German Navy wants to use its planned collaboration with the Australian Navy to further test the German Navy’s capabilities in the Indo-Pacific region, as well as increase its influence in the region. Defence Connect wrote:

The planned Hamburg deployment [of a German frigate] comes as Germany’s defense leaders test the waters for new engagements far from home. The sea service especially is seen by some as a potential harbinger for the type of out-of-area missions that the homeland defence-focused German military wants to expand to underwrite its geopolitical ambitions.

In trusting Germany for protection, Australia would do well to seriously consider the nation’s track record when it comes to “geopolitical ambitions”—after all, it started World Wars i and ii.


Europe Helps Russia and China Break the Dollar


Plans for a dedollarized world are accelerating.

The European Union—especially Germany—is joining forces with Russia and China to break the dollar. Russia and China’s search for more independence from the dollar is nothing new. However, the trend continues to experience historic milestones.

The dollar’s share of Russia-China trade fell below 50 percent for the first time ever this year, reaching 46 percent. Just 50 years ago, that figure was 90 percent. Replacing it were the euro, at 30 percent, and the Russian ruble and Chinese yuan, accounting for another 24 percent together. These are new records for all three currencies.

Also, the share of euros in Russian exports to the EU increased from 38 percent at the end of 2019 to 43 percent in the first quarter of 2020.

A longer view shows the same trend. Since the euro was created, the share of dollars held in reserve by central banks around the world has decreased from 70 percent to 60 percent. The euro now accounts for 20 percent of foreign reserves held globally. The yuan comprises a further 5 percent, as does the Japanese yen.

All of this is leading to a “breakthrough moment” for Russia and China on the path toward dedollarization, said Alexey Maslov, director of the Institute of Far Eastern Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences, speaking to Nikkei Asian Review. “The collaboration between Russia and China in the financial sphere tells us that they are finally finding the parameters for a new alliance with each other,” he stated. “Many expected that this would be a military alliance or a trading alliance, but now the alliance is moving more in the banking and financial direction ….”

All this may be a small start, but it’s clear China wants to move the foundations of the economic world. What can it gain from such a shift?

“If China can win Germany, it can win Europe. It can win the world,” stated an October 14 analysis published by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

DOJ to Investigate Widespread Voter Fraud

05:00 Bill Barr Breaks His Silence (12 minutes)

U.S. Attorney General William Barr published a letter to U.S. prosecutors yesterday authorizing them to “pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections in your jurisdictions in certain cases, as I have already done in specific instances.” The move is important because prosecutors normally don’t investigate fraud until after an election has been certified. Does Bill Barr know more than he’s letting on?

17:00 Media Censorship the New Normal (27 minutes)

Major media networks continue to silence officials of the Trump administration and deny evidence of wrongdoing in last week’s presidential election. Yesterday, Fox News demonstrated that it now supports the media blackout when host Neil Cavuto abruptly cut off a broadcast of White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany, saying, “Unless she has more details to back this up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing you this.” Why are the media so afraid to examine evidence of voter fraud?

Donald Trump Is Going to Win This Election

Donald Trump Is Going to Win This Election

The media have already crowned Joe Biden. They are going to be shocked and disgraced.

This past Friday night, Joe Biden held a big parade and made a victory speech. Saturday, the American news media decided to declare him the winner of the election and the president-elect of the United States.

It does appear strongly that this man will be America’s next president. But I absolutely do not believe that at all. Regardless of how things look right now, I am confident that Donald Trump will remain president.

Regardless of how things look right now, I am confident that Donald Trump will remain president.

The radical left in America have done everything in their power for the last four years to discredit and destroy Donald Trump. They have spied. They have lied. They have cheated. They have broken laws too numerous to count. They have committed treason, trying to depose the duly elected government! And somehow, President Trump has weathered all those storms.

What the left is doing now—all this theater aimed at bullying people into accepting Joe Biden as president—is more of the same. It should come as no surprise.

But the election has not been decided. And I am certain you are about to see some of the biggest frauds exposed perhaps ever!

Why? Because a Biden presidency is contrary to.... click image to read more

The Unraveling of the America-South Korea Alliance

South Korea’s military alliance with the United States is coming under increasing pressure in a trend that could culminate in a colossal loss of America’s power in East Asia and a massive victory for China.

It came to light on October 27 that the phrase “keeping the current level of U.S. military personnel in Korea” had been omitted from the communiqué published after the latest Security Consultative Meeting between South Korean and American officials. South Korean Defense Minister Suh Wook suggested during a parliamentary inspection that the omitted phrase means the 28,500 U.S. soldiers stationed in the country may soon be reduced to a smaller number.

“This is the first time,” South Korea’s Dong-A Ilbo wrote, “that the South Korean military authorities have issued a statement indicative of a potential reduction of U.S. forces on the Korean Peninsula.”

The news came just two weeks after South Korea’s ambassador to the U.S., Lee Soo-hyuck, addressed the South Korea National Assembly’s Foreign Affairs and Unification Committee, saying: “Just because Korea chose the U.S. 70 years ago does not mean it has to choose the U.S. for the next 70 years, too.”

00:30 The Coup (25 minutes)

After years of denying of the results of the 2016 presidential election, Democrats are now accusing President Donald Trump of demolishing democracy for questioning the abhorrent and illegal vote counting procedures in Philadelphia, Detroit, Milwaukee and Atlanta as well as other Democrat-run cities notorious for election fraud. During President Trump’s speech last night, every major network interrupted the president in order to perform live “fact checks.” On Twitter, posts of possible corruption at counting stations have been pulled down for “violating” Twitter’s rules.

America is currently in the midst of a blatant coup attempt. America’s president is being silenced. Tech companies are censoring and removing evidence of corruption. City officials are shielding the post-election voting process after freezing the count on election night.

Iran Builds Nuclear Facility—Underground

After its last facility in Natanz was destroyed, Iran promised to rebuild it. Now construction has begun—underground.

Satellite images from Planet Labs Inc. and inspectors from the United Nations’ atomic watchdog confirmed last week that Iran has started building an underground advanced centrifuge assembly facility. This facility in the mountains around Natanz is replacing the one that exploded this summer in what Tehran called a sabotage attack.

Iran announced it would rebuild the destroyed Natanz facility; those plans are now moving forward.

This is the start of a new and dangerous chapter in the nuclear standoff.

Following a June attack that destroyed a facility linked to the production of solid-propellant rockets, a July 2 explosion destroyed the Natanz nuclear complex. This crucial facility in Iran’s nuclear program was constructed in 2012 to develop advanced centrifuges used to produce weapons-grade uranium for use in nuclear warheads. Only recently has Iran mastered the more advanced IR-4 and IR-6 centrifuges. These advanced centrifuges enable it to enrich uranium at a much higher rate than the IR-1 and IR-2Ms, which made up nearly all of its approximately 20,000 centrifuges over the past decade. Until the July 2 attack, there was concern that Iran could use these advanced centrifuges to weaponize uranium quickly enough that the United States, Israel and others would not be able to prevent it.

When these centrifuges became operable, they would have been moved deep underground, protected by layers of concrete and steel to make it impossible for Israel (or anyone else) to destroy them by military strike. The centrifuges were vulnerable only while they remained aboveground.

After the July 2 attack, Iran is going underground in Natanz.

The World Prepares for American Chaos

As the United States prepares for elections, many Americans are fearful—not just that their candidate may not win, but that their country may not survive the vote.

Fortitude Ranch, a chain of survivalist camps, has opened its premises in case of a “collapse disaster.”

“We consider the risk of violence that could escalate in irrational, unpredictable ways into widespread loss of law and order is real,” said ceo Drew Miller.

A YouGov poll found 52 percent of voters said they believe violence would increase after the election. The New York Post wrote about city residents preparing to move to the country to ensure they’re out of town for the vote and the potentially violent aftermath.

The threat of civil unrest and violence in America is rising; it’s no surprise people are taking precautions.

Other countries are getting ready too. But they’re not preparing for the worst. They see American unrest as an opportunity—and they want to make the most of it.

Extreme members of the radical left are openly planning violence if they don’t get their way in the election. Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Democrats should not concede the election under any circumstances. A massive increase in postal voting has opened the door to a flood of court cases revolving around exactly which votes will be counted.

After nearly two decades of fighting in Iraq, the United States issued an ultimatum to the Iraqi government late last month: Prevent the frequent attacks on our soldiers, bases and convoys, or we will shut down and withdraw from our embassy in Iraq.

But dismantling the militias is proving to be an impossible task for the Baghdad government.

In an October 2 statement, former Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said that Baghdad’s Green Zone, where most governmental buildings and foreign ministries are located, “should be cleansed from the militias and the pmu [Popular Mobilization Units] presence.”

On Saturday, October 17, pmu loyalists attacked the headquarters of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (kdp), burning the building and raising the pmu flag. On the same day, another pro-Iran militia kidnapped 12 and executed at least eight citizens of the Salahuddin province.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on October 22 that it is possible Russia and China will forge an official military alliance.

During a meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club, a Russian international affairs organization, Putin was asked whether he and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping might elevate the relationship between their two countries to an official military union. He answered:

It is possible to imagine anything. We have always believed that our relations have reached such a level of cooperation and trust that it is not necessary, but it is certainly imaginable, in theory. …

Undoubtedly, cooperation between Russia and China is boosting the defense potential of the Chinese People’s Army, which is in the interests of Russia as well as China. Time will tell how it will progress from here. So far, we have not set that goal for ourselves. But, in principle, we are not going to rule it out, either. So, we will see.

The next day in China, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian spoke about the Russia-China relationship and welcomed Putin’s remarks: “Under the strategic guidance of President Xi and President Putin, mutual political trust and strategic coordination between the two countries has been enhanced.” .....

How corrupt was the Obama-Biden administration? How corrupt will a Biden-Harris administration be? Last week, the New York Post published a bombshell revelation that answers both of these burning questions. It has to do with the Biden vice presidency, piles of cash, and a laptop computer in a Delaware repair shop. And, especially if radical leftists seize power, it has to do with you.

The New York Post revelation about a massive pay-for-play scandal during the Obama years continues to make (some) headlines. It involves Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, and what he did while his father was in power. More importantly, it involves what Joe Biden himself did while he was in power.

The story starts during the administration of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. And it revolves around, of all places, Ukraine. Yes, the same Ukraine that became a household word a few months ago. The same place that news companies plastered all over their headlines, nonstop. The same place that big technology executives allowed users to spread what was originally classified information (a presidential phone call) about. The same place—and the same issue of corruption—that Democrats were so concerned over that they solemnly impeached President Donald Trump. It even gets back to the same individuals: alleged corruption of Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.... Read More, Click Image
