Yesterday, the U.S. government formally charged the communist dictator of Venezuela, Nicholas Maduro, and his cronies with waging narco-terrorist warfare against our country.

According to Attorney General William Barr, who unveiled an indictment against Maduro and fourteen other co-conspirators, they “allegedly conspired with the FARC [Columbian terrorist group], causing tons of cocaine to enter and devastate American communities.”

It’s bad enough that Maduro and his thugs have destroyed their country – forcing millions of Venezuelans to flee abject poverty and brutal repression – and given our enemies like Cuba, Iran, Russia and China footholds in this hemisphere.

In addition, Venezuela’s president and secretary of defense are among the kleptocrats benefiting from the sustained use against our people of narcotic forms of weapons of mass destruction. So, the new, multi-million dollar U.S. bounties for their arrests should read instead, “Wanted: Dead or Alive."

It’s been said that “a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality.” America is undergoing a similar transformation, having been mugged by the reality of the pandemic precipitated by the Chinese Communist Party. 

President Trump spoke Monday for millions of us who now realize that we can no longer do business as usual with China. He said, “We should never be reliant on a foreign country for the means of our own survival….This crisis has underscored just how critical it is to have strong borders and a robust manufacturing sector….

“Our goal for the future must be to have American medicine for American patients, American supplies for American hospitals, and American equipment for our great American heroes,” Trump said. “Now both parties must unite to ensure America is truly an independent nation in every sense of the word.”

Amen.

“You want it bad, you get it bad” is a maxim that applies in spades to must-pass legislation. A case in point is the emergency bill now being finalized in Congress that’s ostensibly aimed at alleviating the damage being done to the American people and economy by the Chinese virus.

Unfortunately, House Democrats have seized upon the opportunity, in the words of their chamber’s third-ranking leader, Rep. Jim Clyburn, “to restructure things to fit our vision.” As a result, the House-passed version would enhance the power of unions, help advance the radical environmentalists’ “Green New Deal” agenda and enable voting fraud on an unprecedented scale.

Initially, Democratic Senators fell into line with Speaker Pelosi’s demands. While they ultimately won’t get everything she wanted, the $2 trillion bill rewards such shakedown artists at the expense – figuratively and literally – of suffering American taxpayers.

The Hawaiian island of Oahu is home to the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet. Ordinarily, it’s a bustling place. In this time of pandemic disease, government shutdown and social distancing, however, it is reportedly eerily quiet – a  symptom of our nation’s preoccupation with the myriad domestic crises brought on by the one foreign threat we perceive at the moment: the Chinese virus.

But experienced national security professionals are warning that the Chinese Communist Party may regard this moment as an ideal one for lashing out, perhaps by invading Taiwan. It has been preparing for such an ambitious operation for years with the deployment nearby of immense amounts of military gear, including advanced ballistic missiles, aircraft and ships. 

The PRC is indisputably behaving increasingly provocatively towards Taiwan – and towards us. If we want peace, we better prepare for war with Communist China.

The CCP Virus

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

The Chinese Communist Party is doubling down on its effort to deflect blame for the global pandemic that began in Wuhan late last year. The CCP has immense resources for planting and disseminating falsehoods like the charge that the virus actually was brought there by US Army personnel participating in military games in that city in October.

Unfortunately, China’s Communists can count on American partisans to help them amplify their propaganda. Take, for example, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman who recently dubbed the so-called COVID-19 outbreak the “Trump Pandemic.” 

The Communists in China and their friends aren’t just lying about the provenance of this virus. They’re concealing its current status in China. For example, the Party insists not one member of its military has been infected. Really?

A new moniker is making the rounds: “The CCP Virus.”

Works for me.

When influential globalists met last October for their “Event 201” table-top exercise, they anticipated that a coronavirus pandemic would promote their favorite cause: one-world governance.

An early victim of the Chinese-induced pandemic, however, appears to be the prototype and chief advocate for the transnational enterprise: the European Union. Central to the EU’s efforts to diminish and ultimately destroy the identity and sovereignty of its member states was the elimination of the Union’s internal borders.

But, in response to the Chinese virus, nation after nation in Europe – including Germany, the so-called Schengen zone’s most aggressive champion – have reinstituted and closed their borders. More of them may ultimately follow Britain in exiting from Brussels’ union.

To be determined is whether Communist China – whose personnel participated in Event 201 – will succeed in translating today’s pandemic into momentum towards its preferred world government under Beijing’s dominion.

Yesterday, the White House press corps asserted that it is “racist” for President Trump to say the novel coronavirus originated in China. Not only is such criticism counter-factual. It actually reinforces what must now be recognized as enemy propaganda.

After all, the Chinese Communist Party is no longer hiding its determination to supplant and, if necessary, defeat our nation as the world’s preeminent power. But the Party is doing everything it can to blame us for the deadly pandemic that originated in Wuhan and is now wreaking havoc globally.

Britain’s University of Southampton estimates that 95% of the damage done by the Chinese virus could have been avoided if the Communist Party had not wasted three weeks lying about its outbreak. Not only must Xi Jinping and Company be held responsible for such outrageous misconduct. They should be financially penalized for it.

Democratic operatives have insisted for much of Donald Trump’s presidency that “No one is above the law.” It’s one of their more cynically hypocritical lines of attack against him, since they clearly don’t mean that the rule of law should apply to their partisans, too 

Take, for instance, Hillary Clinton and her long-running – and thus far successful – efforts to ensure that she and her entourage are not held to the same standards and statutes that apply to everybody else. To that end, the former Secretary of State is frantically trying to overturn a federal judge’s order that she must be deposed by Judicial Watch about her illegal email server and its serial compromises of national security secrets. 

The question occurs: Why on earth are the Trump administration’s Justice and State Departments helping Hillary get preferential, instead of equal, treatment under the law?

Amidst Wall Street’s continuing free-fall and the nation’s struggle to adapt to social distancing, it’s important to bear in mind how we got here. A helpful online resource is China Uncensored’s YouTube channel.

Host Chris Chappell’s latest video identifies eight steps the Chinese Communist Party has utilized to manage and then “spin” the coronavirus that was unleashed worldwide from its original, and still worst hot zone in Wuhan. They include the initial, official denials of the outbreak and subsequent cover-up that contributed enormously to the pandemic’s spread, and subsequent efforts to boast about the Party’s totalitarian efforts suppress it – and its people. We’re supposed to believe that communism is a cure for coronavirus. 

Yesterday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo diplomatically but sternly repudiated the latest Chinese gambit – blaming us for the “Wuhan virus.” Such propaganda adds deep insult to tremendous injury.

Socialism is a bigger threat than the coronavirus. And the Wuhan Flu has the potential greatly to accelerate the globalists’ efforts to spread their socialist political agenda at the expense of both public health and national sovereignty. Remember, they believe a crisis should never go to waste.

Video is circulating on the Internet from an exercise dubbed Event 201 conducted in October 2019. Its sponsors and participants included such globalist powerhouses as: the Bloomberg-backed Johns Hopkins University, the Davos World Economic Forum, the Gates, Rockefeller and UN Foundations, the World Bank, the CIA and the U.S. and Chinese Centers for Disease Control. They talk on tape about exploiting a pandemic to fund and build global governance. 

We must not allow the present crisis to undermine our national sovereignty and promote socialism. Unfortunately, the globalists clearly disagree.
