The coronavirus outbreak is the shape of things to come

The Wuhan coronavirus, now officially named COVID-19, reveals how vulnerable humanity remains to virulent pathogens. A century after the devastating Spanish flu pandemic, public health officials are scrambling to prevent this latest plague—which as of Feb. 24 had infected more than 79,000 people in at least 29 countries, most of them in China—from becoming another pandemic. As they do, it’s worth taking a step back to consider the stubborn staying power of infectious disease. Far from an anomaly, this outbreak is the shape of things to come…

Today, development and globalization are driving a new era of infectious disease. Since 1980, scientists have discovered new human pathogens at a rate of more than three per year. Nearly three quarters are viruses, and the vast majority are zoonoses, or diseases that leap from one animal reservoir to another, often recombining DNA along the way. As humans exploit and disrupt once isolated ecosystems, they and their domesticates inevitably come into closer contact with wild species and the novel pathogens they host…

he tass news agency reported on February 21 that the Russian Ministry of Defense is expected to sign a contract for the construction of its ninth and 10th Borei class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. Seven of these 10 will be the newer, upgraded and more advanced A-class submarine.



tass quoted an anonymous Russian defense industry source as saying, “A decision has been made to sign a contract at the Army 2020 forum for building two more Borei-A missile-carrying submarines. Under the terms of the contract, both ships will be laid down at the Sevmash Shipyard in 2021.”

Asenior United States Navy admiral warned on February 4 that America’s East Coast has been left vulnerable due to the increased presence of Russian submarines in the Atlantic Ocean.

At a gathering of the U.S. Naval Institute and the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Navy Vice Adm. Andrew “Woody” Lewis said, “Our new reality is that when our sailors toss the lines over and set sail, they can expect to be operating in a contested space once they leave Norfolk. Our ships can no longer expect to operate in a safe haven on the East Coast or merely cross the Atlantic unhindered to operate in another location.”

Admiral Lewis is commander of the Navy’s 2nd Fleet, which resumed operation in 2018 to handle the threat of Russian submarines in the Atlantic Ocean.

This threat was highlighted in October 2019 when Russia began its largest underwater exercises since the Cold War. Ten Russian submarines took .....  read more



Russia is replacing older nuclear technology with newer and deadlier options in a trend that the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace said on January 29 has Europe “very concerned.”

While Russian President Vladimir Putin has bragged about its intercontinental Burevestnik nuclear propelled missile, all of its tests in 2019 ended in failure. Europe is more worried about Russia’s nuclear modernization program that revolves more around weapons that can threaten European soil.


British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his National Security Council decided on January 28 to allow Chinese company Huawei access to “non-core” parts of its network, as it builds portions of Britain’s 5G network.

Though the council says that Huawei will not be granted access to “sensitive locations” or nuclear sites, it made the decision despite warnings from the United States that allowing the Chinese company access to its networks could jeopardize trans-Atlantic intelligence sharing.

The council decided to proceed with the deal because, despite Huawei being a “high risk vendor,” it determined that it could safely navigate the cybersecurity risks. The decision was also motivated by the belief that banning Huawei would have resulted in losses of tens of billions of pounds as well as “significant consumer delays,” according to the Telegraph.

Johnson said he would never “jeopardize” Britain’s security relationships. Digital Secretary Baroness Nicky Morgan asserted that high-risk vendors, such as Huawei, “never have been and never will be in our most sensitive networks.”

But U.S. security expert Klon Kitchen warned that Britain’s dual action of trusting Huawei and believing that it can keep Huawei out is a “terrible mistake.” He warned:

Chinese law says that all information—even your information—that transits, is stored on, or in any other way touches the networks of a Chinese company is considered “Chinese information” and, therefore, must be made available to the country’s intelligence services. Huawei’s assurances that your information is protected from these laws are not credible and the fact that these networks can be technically “secured” will do nothing to change this fact.





Desperation and division are growing amidst Germany’s political uncertainty.

“We are now at the finality of a highly accomplished chancellor who led a country through many storms,” former German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg said about Chancellor Angela Merkel (Trumpet translation throughout). But now is the time, he said, when “the next to come must lead.” Guttenberg has a clear favorite about who this next leader should be: Merkel’s long-time rival, Friedrich Merz.....  READ MORE





America’s government has been embroiled in a shameful impeachment charade for months now. The Democrats are demonstrating that there is virtually no limit to what they are willing to do to attack the president and undermine the last election—and the next one. Meanwhile, revelations continue to emerge about their abuse of the intelligence agencies to spy on Americans, even the president himself.

People need to understand what a dangerous threat this is to the very foundation of this nation!

What is happening in the Democratic Party is an extension of and intensification of a process started by the previous president.

When Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally change America” during his 2008 presidential run, few people knew what he really meant. Now that he is out of office, it is becoming clearer all the time that the change he was talking about was something far more dangerous than many people assumed.

He meant changing America from a constitutional republic. And what we are witnessing in the country today shows that, to an alarming degree, he succeeded!      READ MORE





President Vladimir Putin
Putin is deliberately weakening presidential powers—just in time for him to step into another more influential office.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent shock waves around the world once again. In his January 15 State of the Union address, he announced the most sweeping changes to Russia’s constitution since the document was put into force in 1993. This bombshell was immediately followed by the resignation of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and the rest of the Russian cabinet, a move that will facilitate Putin’s overhaul of the Constitution.








Guttenberg and a ‘Final Wake-up Call’ for Europe


In an interview with Die-Wirtschaft.at, former German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg said he hopes that “developments in China and the United States” will provide Europe a “final wake-up call” to unite (Trumpet translation throughout). The Austrian publication wrote on November 27: “According to Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, Europe must quickly move closer together and show strength—also militarily.”

In the interview, Guttenberg was asked how Europe can position itself to play a decisive role in the future. He answered:

First of all, I am convinced that Europe must position itself as a strong pillar and not lose sight of both directions. Whether this will work, however, depends on if, and to what extent, we can create European cohesion. First of all, one needs to see the antagonism between China and the United States, and the resulting lines of conflict, as an opportunity for Europe. If you want to capitalize on China’s drive to expand and the renationalization of the United States, Europe has to be more confident in carrying its unique economic area with over 500 million people forward.



Germany and France Plan to Reform the EU





Australia’s Dangerous Submarine Deal

Australian defense officials have disclosed recently that its record-breaking submarine deal with France is expected to cost much more than the original estimate. The cost of building the 12 French-designed attack submarines has crept up from the initial estimates of roughly us$35 billion to us$55 billion. The Australian government summoned the head of the French shipbuilding company dcns to Australia last month as the two worked to finalize the deal. It is the largest ever defense procurement project for both Australia and France. For a nation surrounded entirely by water, Australia is putting a lot of trust in France for its future defense.
Australia bets big on a foreign country.













China Prepares to Blind U.S. Satellites China Prepares to Blind U.S. Satellites
These capabilities would send society into disarray and paralyze the world’s greatest military superpower within moments.

China has been rapidly developing its military capabilities to a level that could threaten the greatest military power in existence today. But beyond the visible land, air and sea forces, it is developing the technology that could devastate the latest military frontier: space. On September 27, the head of United States Space Command warned that China is developing laser weapons that could blind American satellites.

“We’re pretty comfortable [in asserting] that they are developing directed energy weapons—probably building lasers to blind our satellites,” said U.S. Gen. John “Jay” Raymond. “It’s clear that China would plan to use those threats against us in conflict,” he added.

Only in recent years has space become a military realm on par with land, sea, air and cyberspace. This fact led President Donald Trump to re-establish the 1985 U.S. Space Command in August, which had been dissolved by George W. Bush in 2002. The force was reestablished in order to put more focus on staying ahead of the threats to this realm.

Right-Wing Extremists in the Bundeswehr Slowly Exposed

Investigators’ sympathy has hindered the investigation for years.

The German Military Counterintelligence Service expanded its investigation of right-wing extremist soldiers in the Bundeswehr in 2019. As a result, the military secret service has added 50 new cases since May to the investigation, bringing the total number of cases up to 478. The counterintelligence service has been criticized for neglecting the investigation for years.

How Germany Plans to Win World War III How Germany Plans to Win World War III
From the October 2019 Trumpet Print Edition

Imagine living under a totalitarian political party. It surveils and controls every aspect of society: the courts, the media, your finances, your healthcare, your beliefs. Parents are afraid their children will report them to the secret police for conversations held around the dinner table. People who are merely suspected of disagreeing with the party have suddenly disappeared. People are reeducated, enslaved, sterilized and even killed for belonging to a race or ethnic group that the party has declared inferior.

You would be living in this world if Germany won World War ii.

Google’s Plan to Hack Democracy

Big Tech companies have changed the Internet from an instrument of democracy to a tool for authoritarians.

An American organization is helping China build a totalitarian surveillance state. Google and ibm executives lead the OpenPower Foundation, which is working with the Chinese company Semptian to build a microprocessor that allows the Chinese government to monitor the Internet activity of millions of people. After receiving tips about the company’s role in mass surveillance, an investigative reporter contacted Semptian posing as a potential customer. In response, a Semptian employee revealed that the company had developed a surveillance system named Aegis. The program allows spies to collect people’s e-mail records, phone calls, text messages, cellphone locations and web-browsing histories.

China is using this technology to target critics of President Xi Jinping’s Communist regime, and U.S. companies are helping. “It’s disturbing to see that China has successfully recruited Western companies and researchers to assist them in their information control efforts,” Sen. Mark Warner of the Senate Intelligence Committee told Intercept.

Aegis equipment has been embedded in China’s phone and Internet networks, and sold to authoritarian governments in the Middle East and North Africa. And some of the same technology is being used to track the e-mail records, phone calls, text messages, cellphone locations and web-browsing histories of American citizens.

Authoritarian regimes in East Asia, North Africa and the Middle East are so eager for the latest Google technology because Google was established with research grants from the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency.

“Some of the research that led to Google’s ambitious creation was funded and coordinated by a research group established by the intelligence community to find ways to track individuals and groups online,” reported Quartz Magazine. “The intelligence community hoped that the nation’s leading computer scientists could take nonclassified information and user data, combine it with what would become known as the Internet, and begin to create for-profit, commercial enterprises to suit the needs of both the intelligence community and the public.”

The search algorithms that resulted from this cia–Silicon Valley alliance allow companies like Google to track people’s interests, hobbies and political affiliations as part of a grand targeted advertising campaign. These same algorithms are now being sold to authoritarian regimes around the world, allowing dictators to clamp down on “dissidents” who are reading online material that their governments have deemed subversive. Google executives are even using these same algorithms to influence election results in democratic nations, like the United States.

It’s now confirmed, 28 months after the fact: Donald Trump’s winning the 2016 election by secretly conspiring with Russian operatives was an ELABORATE HOAX. It was invented by the Department of Justice and the FBI at the end of the Obama presidency for the sole purpose of destroying a political enemy.
 
On Friday, Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Mueller III submitted his long-awaited report to the attorney general’s office, ending a torturous 22 months of investigating Donald Trump and nearly everyone associated with his 2016 presidential campaign. For two years, Democrats, Never-Trumpers and their all-too-overeager allies in the mainstream media reminded us every day that the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government to rig the election. The Mueller probe, they assured us, would prove every one of these slanderous accusations: from high crimes and misdemeanors to outright treason. Donald Trump, his children and their advisers were all going to prison, probably for life, for conspiring with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
 
American taxpayers funded every penny of this sham investigation, estimated at $25 to $40 million. According to Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the report, Mueller employed 19 prosecutors and was assisted by 40 FBI agents. The special counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed 500 search warrants, interviewed 500 witnesses, collected 230 requests for communication records, and submitted 13 requests for evidence to foreign governments.
 
After all that, according to the report, “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities” (emphasis added throughout). In other words, not one, single American was indicted or convicted for conspiring with the Russian government to influence the 2016 election.
 
The media reaction to this revelation has been astounding. They are not happy or even relieved to know that the Trump team did not conspire with Russia to compromise the American election process. They are instead furious that Mueller didn’t take down Donald Trump!
 
They haven’t even read the full report (it hasn’t been released). But they know President Trump is guilty. And they are all competing to be the ones with the most anti-Trump reaction to the news that he and his team have been cleared.
 
They are displaying to the world that they are impervious to facts. The evidence does not matter if it differs from their opinions.
 
“How can they let Trump off the hook?” one commentator mournfully asked on Friday night. Another said, “I don’t need the Mueller report to know he’s a traitor—I have a TV.” Yet another said he was still convinced that Mr. Trump is BENEDICT ARNOLD, the infamous Revolutionary War defector. One Democratic presidential candidate says he knows “beyond a shadow of doubt” that Trump colluded with Russia. Another Democrat in the House of Representatives is now calling for Robert Mueller to be subpoenaed!
 
These people should be hanging their heads in shame. Instead, they simply turn their eyes and ears AWAY from truth and carry on with this disgraceful con job. There are plenty of other investigations still pending, one commentator gleefully noted over the weekend.
 
They won’t stop until they get rid of Donald Trump because, well, he’s Donald Trump. They hate the fact that he defeated them. They hate him. But most importantly, they hate those who support him.
 
This was Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s response to the Mueller disappointment: “The special prosecutor is limited in scope; his job was limited in scope and limited to crimes. What Congress has to do is look at a BROADER PICTURE.” Never mind crimes! The Democrats in Congress have SO MUCH MORE they can “investigate” in order to, at the very least, bog down and oppose President Trump and his policies.
 
So they will do everything in their power to continue the con. But the truth is there for those who have eyes to see.
 
On my radio program earlier today, I had a lot to say about the Mueller probe and the Russian collusion hoax. At this milestone moment in this crucial presidency, I really encourage you to have a listen:

LISTEN NOW
Haven’t you wondered why Donald Trump has been so resilient, to say the least? People considered him a novelty. He ran for president of the United States. People said his candidacy was a joke. He won the nomination. People poured on the hate. He won the election. Democrats, journalists, commentators, celebrities, former friends and associates, more than a few Republicans, and even powerful people inside his own government have all tried to, at least, slow him down and, at most, impeach him (or perhaps goad someone into killing him).

But President Donald J. Trump rolls on.
 
Not only does he retain the presidency, but he gets things done: reforming taxes, confirming a record number of circuit judges, withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate accords, moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing the Golan Heights, increasing border security, reducing regulations, renegotiating trade deals, making businesses optimistic, and helping the U.S. economy surge.

Not only does he retain the presidency and get things done, but the more his enemies work to destroy him, the worse things go for them. About half the country opposed him, and I’d say about 90 percent of the elites hate him. President Barack Obama’s administration doubled down on its opposition to him by stacking the powerful Department of Justice with agents who would try to undermine and end the Trump presidency. Yet as my father showed in “Nunes Memo Exposes Unseen Threat to America,” the scheming, collusion and deceit that the former president and other radical liberals aimed at destroying President Trump backfired, and the world discovered much of that corruption. Their attack damaged them more than it damaged Mr. Trump. How does that happen? Why does it keep happening?
 
They doubled down further by launching the Mueller investigation. They devoted a huge amount of executive, legislative, media and cultural power to it. Now, rather than meaningfully damaging the president, they have again damaged themselves. Yet even with the humiliation so fresh, they have little choice but to double down even further in their opposition. (Backing off now, in the face of the facts, would mean admitting they were wrong and, in most cases, admitting that they tried to influence people in a biased if not deceitful way.) They’re probably working right now on their latest, most creative, most vicious insults to voice on television in the competition to show that they are the celebrity, politician or journalist who possesses the most rage toward President Trump. But by now they probably have a sinking feeling that their best isn’t good enough. Something is powering this president that they haven’t been able to stop.
 
How can a man facing such enormous enmity still succeed?
 
He can’t.
 
This presidency has been used to temporarily save the nation, but the savior is not Mr. Trump. God Himself has used this presidency to keep this nation from falling. What is powering the president is not his own strength, personality, allies or anything else. My father spoke and wrote about the real reason for the president’s success about a year ago. I encourage you to read it: “Saving America From the Radical Left—Temporarily.”
