Congressman Eric Swalwell’s betrayal of his country through a Chinese Communist Party gambit known in espionage   tradecraft as a “honey trap” is reportedly the subject of a steamy, classified intelligence community report about his sexual relations with a PRC spy fabulously named “Fang Fang.” editor-in-chief Alexander Marlow told Tucker Carlson last night that it details the “deep penetration inside”  Swalwell’s operation by Chinese intelligence.

Hopefully, classification is being applied in this case not to protect a congressional overseer from further public humiliation, but because the report assesses the very real prospect that Swalwell is still being run, albeit more discretely, by handlers in China’s Ministry of State Security.

Either way, it’s completely unacceptable that Eric Swalwell continues to have access to our nation’s most sensitive secrets. He must be stripped of his Intelligence Committee membership immediately.

It’s been said that “conservatives are liberals who have been mugged by reality.” Today, millions of Americans of all political stripes have undergone a similar transformation in the wake of the pandemic spawned when the Chinese Communist Party unleashed its deadly, engineered virus on us and the rest of the world.

A new study by our Committee on the Present Danger: China documents that, far from being a benign trading partner, the CCP is our mortal enemy. Entitled China’s Dream, The World’s Nightmare, this report exposes the ominous progress Beijing’s colonial “Belt and Road Initiative” is making towards dominating, and ultimately enslaving, some 140 nations all over the world.

Read the report at and then register to join us for a webinar from 4:30-5:30 ET today discussing the implications of this imperial program – and what we can do to defeat it.

A new poll suggests that likely 2022 voters are primed for an even greater than normal course-correction in a president’s first off-year election. The Trafalgar Group, one of the country’s most accurate pollsters, found stunning majorities hostile to a problem with which Joe Biden is inextricably associated – namely, Chinese influence operations inside the United States.

The poll found that 81% were concerned about “China’s influence over our government, media and culture,” with an actual majority very concerned.

It seems inevitable that, as the public learns more about Mr. Biden’s own compromise by Chinese influence operators and that of so many of his administration’s top officials, voters will rightly become even more alarmed. The question is: How much damage will the CCP be able to do before those opposed to its penetration and subversion here receive a powerful electoral mandate to reverse course?

Even before Joe Biden’s alarming performance in a CNN Townhall event on Wednesday, a recent poll found 56 percent of the American people believe he is not in charge. That percentage can only have grown further in its aftermath.

If Mr. Biden isn’t actually performing as our nation’s Chief Executive, who is? Since the agenda being shoved down our throats in his name is so radical, we have an urgent need-to- know.

Sadly, none of the obvious candidates inspire much confidence. Vice President Kamala Harris, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, Domestic Policy Advisor Susan Rice, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and even former President Barack Obama all have records of dishonesty, bad judgment and/or sheer incompetence.

Our country is in deep trouble. We are entitled, at the very least, to learn who to hold accountable for running it into the ground.

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky contended this week that Dr. Anthony Fauci lied under oath when he previously denied having funded dangerous research in a Communist Chinese Party biological weapons lab.

But Dr. Fauci did use taxpayer money to underwrite “gain of function” bio-engineering in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, producing a coronavirus that has killed vast numbers of Americans and others around the world. Worse yet, Chinese defector Dr. Li-Meng Yan warns the CCP is using the techniques they thus learned to develop viruses tailored to wipe out specific populations – including ours.

Dr. Fauci continues to deny his agency’s role in enabling our mortal enemy’s weapons of mass destruction program. Sen. Paul, however, has called on the Justice Department to conduct a criminal investigation and, if warranted, prosecution. In the meantime, Tony Fauci should finally be removed from the government payroll.

Yesterday, Pedro Castillo, a Marxist with ties to the Shining Path terrorist group and an affinity for the interests of drug traffickers, was declared to have won a fraud-fraught election for the presidency of Peru. Latin America now faces the distinct prospect of yet-another promising developing country misruled and bankrupted by a Communist regime – with dire repercussions for its people, the region and us.

If, as seems likely, Peru’s trajectory follows that of Fidel Castro’s Cuba, Daniel Ortega’s Nicaragua and Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela, its people will soon be subjected to an oppressive government denying them freedom and free market capitalism. That will, inevitably, translate into mass emigration, further roiling neighboring states like Colombia and Chile, and exacerbating the invasion occurring here.

History will judge harshly the U.S. government’s failure to help stave off this disaster. Who lost Peru? Joe Biden did.

Last week, Joe Biden declared “Communism is a failed system, a universally failed system. And I don't see socialism as a very useful substitute.”

Those words were uttered in the context of U.S. policy towards courageous Cubans demanding an end to the communist regime that has misruled their island for decades. They apply equally to the policies Mr. Biden’s own administration is seeking to foist on this country in the hopes of “fundamentally transforming” our economy, security and individual liberties.

An even more immediate test of President Biden’s actual attitude towards communism is in another Latin American nation, Peru. His administration seems indifferent to the prospect that a Marxist takeover of that country is imminent – with disastrous implications for Peru, the region and us.

We must stand with freedom-loving Peruvians and against the “failed system” that is poised to enslave them.

It’s a grave mistake for intelligence services and security policymakers to obsess about hostile powers’ intentions, instead of their actual capabilities to act aggressively. Most immediately, we need to focus less on whether the Chinese Communist Party intends at the moment to go to war than on whether it is prepared to do so.

What are known as indicators and warnings increasingly suggest that the Chinese have put into place the capabilities to invade Taiwan and believe they can now successfully exercise that option.

A recent, compelling Center for Security Policy webinar illuminated the techniques China would likely use to act on their oft-repeated threats to undertake such an attack. Given the exceedingly dangerous global implications, visit to see measures that we must take now to counter the CCP’s ominous capabilities and, thereby, deter whatever it may intend to unleash.

For six decades, every U.S. president has recognized the third week in July as “Captive Nations Week.” Joe Biden’s team –  a group deeply compromised by what is today the principal perpetrator of such transnational repression, namely the Chinese Communist Party – however, is reportedly contemplating abandoning such a statement of solidarity with the enslaved.

This is especially deplorable since such a declaration is more needed today than ever. In fact, a new study to be released next week by the Committee on the Present Danger: China’s Captive Nations Coalition will document how the CCP is in the process of effectively adding through its colonial, debt-trap-financed Belt and Road Initiative as many as 140 other nations to those it has already captured, namely Tibet, Southern Mongolia, East Turkistan and most recently the territory of Hong Kong.

We must denounce, not silently encourage, such behavior.

Like millions of Americans, I have become a huge fan of Tucker Carlson. His truth-telling monologues and conversations with courageous guests who do the same keep hope alive like the U.S.-sponsored dissidents and defectors’ Cold War broadcasts behind the Iron Curtain.

Tucker posted yesterday on his extraordinary new Fox Nation program what I consider to be the most important interview by anyone in memory. I confess to being less than objective as it featured an extremely intimate and deeply moving chat with my cherished friend, Jon Voight.

For an hour, the Oscar-winning actor described an interaction with God that changed his life, an act of humanity that he credits with transforming his career and the imperative of telling the truth about the enemies, foreign and domestic, seeking the destruction of our country.

Please watch and widely share Jon Voight at
