    Looking back, the deal was pretty obvious: you can get out of lockdowns by masking. If you don’t like complying with the first round of tests, here is another test for you: comply with this and all your kvetching about lockdowns can come to an end. Just go along! What kind of pathology do you have to keep from continuing to indulge this pointlessly rebellious habit? You are probably a conspiracy theorist or QAnon or hanging around people from the radical right.

    Just do what you are told and then everything will be fine. Things are not fine because you irrationally cling to your “freedumb.”

    Of course, the government broke the deal. Masking didn’t really end the restrictions. They continued on anyway. And many are still with us, even the track-and-trace surveillance and restrictions on movement. The signs that demand we socially distance still festoon airports and malls even if everyone ignores them.


    “Thank goodness for the vaccines; they will end the lockdowns and the masks.”

    Eventually, there came a third test of compliance. This time it was more explicit: if you don’t like lockdowns and masking, the way out is pretty simple: get the shot. If you get the shot, you can travel around freely and you can even take off your mask. This is the way we end this pandemic but there must be broad compliance. Everyone authorized to get the vaccine under the “emergency use authorization” should do it.

    New York City shut down to everyone but the vaccinated. Refuseniks could not go to restaurants, bars, theaters, libraries, or any other public house. Boston and New Orleans followed suit. The mayors said that they were keeping the city safe and reviving the economy because the only way to avoid getting COVID was to be around only vaccinated people. We were further told that the unvaccinated were prolonging the pandemic. Their patience was running thin: get the jab or lose your job.

    Many had to get it, and thousands were fired for refusing. Millions were displaced because of all this. And this only intensified the campaign, which was then extended to children. Then came the booster and the bivalent. All the while, the news concerning their effectiveness got grimmer. It did not stop transmission, thus removing all “public health” rationale behind the mandates. Moreover, it did not stop infection. You would get COVID anyway. In fact, by virtue of immunity imprinting, you could be even more vulnerable.

    The thinking behind the third hammer blow turned out to be a lie too. Your decision to surrender your bodily autonomy to the vaccine that did work did not gain back your freedom any more than the mask or the lockdowns did. All three compliance demands, each predicated on the idea that it would make the virus go away and gain back rights and liberties, turned out to be ruses of one sort or another.

    Crucially, the new demand came with the promise that if you just believe in and comply with the newest thing, the older thing that you hated will go away. So what’s the problem? Just give in to this new thing and all will be well.

    And yet the vaccine mandate was the most egregious by some measures. If lockdowns were the war, the vaccine mandate was conscription. It took hold of your own body and demanded you allow—via a needle in your skin—in a government-funded and indemnified potion about which you knew nothing. It was the equivalent of drafting young people out of their prime to kill and be killed in a foreign land, and we know how that has ended for states that have tried it: not only riots but revolutions.

    So the third test for many was the very act that flipped the switch in many people’s minds. It was a bridge too far and the act that caused millions to rethink everything about the pandemic response and their compliance all along. Even for those who went along with it, the bitterness remains and grows.

    From legend and literature, this is how things usually are presented, not with one inviting temptation to go along but rather with three chances to comply, each with assurance that all will be well if we just give up our recalcitrant desire to think and act for ourselves. At each stage, every one of us faces enormous pressure, and not just from government but also from family, friends, and coworkers.

    “If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread” ~ material comfort
    “If You are the Son of God, throw yourself down” ~ fame and social approval
    “All these things I will give you if you will fall down and worship me” ~ power
    The three tests in this case turned out to be more like the hammer blows in Mahler’s symphony, signifiers of disaster and death, in this case pertaining to our rights and liberties.

    Sure enough, even now, the remnants of all three are still with us. There are still capacity restrictions in place as remnants of the original lockdowns. Masks are still required in many cities and venues. And the vaccine mandates are still being enforced. And the pandemic emergency is still in place and will be for several more months.

    Just as one is ending, you can be sure that another is beginning. The New York Times just sounded the alarm about H5N1 bird flu, which they say could kill half of humanity if it crosses over from birds to humans. And we can be certain that the three trials will be visited upon us again.

    Have we learned? What will be our response in the next round of trials?

    Needless to say, as the virus continues to spiral out of control, China is in a critical situation and is still trying to figure out what to do about it. Xi has been uncharacteristically quiet on the subject, but his policies continue to be Machiavellian. His zero-COVID policy, which he was so proud and so adamant about keeping in place only a month ago, is now in shambles. The street demonstrations that called for his removal must have been a humiliation in a country where saving face is paramount. But this is far from the end of Xi. He still has enormous power, and senior members of his party are rallying around him. But his policies spell great danger to the rest of the world.

    China has now reopened to foreign tourists, and travelers can enter the country without quarantine. All they need is a negative PCR result within 48 hours before departure. China also restarted its visa-free policy, which means one can travel to China without applying for a new visa. In other words, China is not only making it easy for the Chinese to travel abroad, but it is also encouraging foreign travelers to come to China.

    Even more chilling is the news that after releasing the Chinese people from the long COVID-19 lockdowns, Xi also opened up the Chinese ports for international travel at precisely the same time as he did in 2020. The Chinese New Year falls on Jan. 22 this year, and celebrations culminate with the Lantern Festival on Feb. 5. China is reopening its ports and has begun reissuing passports. This is exactly the same time that 5 million people from Wuhan left the city in 2020 to travel internationally. And once again, they are carrying a dangerous virus.

    Xi has learned nothing from recent history. But one question remains: Will the cruelty that Xi continues to inflict on the world turn back on him and destroy the very power structure that he has worked so hard to build? Will his massive mistakes come back to haunt him and bring down his dream of world supremacy? Or will the power infrastructure he created protect him and allow him to destroy the world?

    The CCP is about to unleash another pandemic on the world, and this one may be far more lethal than the last. Closing national borders to all Chinese travelers and preventing our own from traveling to China would seem to be only common sense. It must be done—immediately. But the world seems uncommonly devoid of anything approaching such basic wisdom. If so, it’s time to prepare for another storm.

    Among other findings, the conservative-leaning think tank said Obama’s Paris pledges would increase electricity costs for a family of four between 13 and 20 percent annually while vaporizing almost half a million jobs, including around 200,000 in manufacturing.

    That damage translates to about $20,000 in lost income for American families by 2035 and a reduction in GDP of over $2.5 trillion.

    Who Benefits?

    Who benefits from all this? Certainly not the “climate.” Again, shipping U.S. industry to China will result in more CO2 in the atmosphere, not less. And in any case, based on the UN’s own debunked “models,” complete elimination of all U.S. CO2 emissions would result in virtually no reduction in global temperatures.

    According to a peer-reviewed paper by Dr. Bjorn Lomborg published in the Global Policy journal, even if all the significant pledges made in Paris were fulfilled, global temperatures would be just 0.05 degrees C (0.086 degrees F) cooler by 2100—a statistically insignificant rounding error.

    The big winner, of course, was the CCP, which has been laughing all the way to the bank as it absorbs the factories, jobs, and wealth production that U.S. and other Western authorities are shutting down to “save the climate.”

    This appears to be deliberate, as statements by leading officials in the Obama administration and the UN have made clear.

    Obama’s “Science Czar” John Holdren openly advocated a de-industrialization of the United States in his 1973 book “Human Ecology.”

    “A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States,” Holdren and his co-authors wrote. “De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology.”

    Then consider seemingly bizarre comments made by then-UN Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Christiana Figueres.

    Speaking to Bloomberg a few months after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed his unsettling admiration for the CCP, Figueres claimed that the regime in Beijing—overseeing about one third of global CO2 output—was “doing it right” on climate policy.

    In separate comments while pushing for major climate policies, Figueres also suggested the goal of “climate” policy was really economic transformation.

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said on Feb. 4, 2015.

    Five years before those comments, one of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s top officials, Ottmar Edenhofer, revealed a similar agenda in comments to Germany’s NZZ Online.

    “One must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,” he said. “One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore.”

    Wealth redistribution? Changing the economic model of the world? De-developing the United States? And here Americans are being told this is about “saving the climate.”

    Remember, too, that when Trump withdrew from the Paris agreement, climate alarmists from around the world declared that Beijing was the new global “leader” of the effort to save the climate—the same regime that oversees the most CO2 emissions, is building coal plants faster than they can be counted, and that promised to keep increasing CO2 emissions until 2030.

    If this is really about saving the climate from CO2, how can the CCP be the new leader? It’s beyond absurd.

    Despite all this, the Biden administration continues to intensify “cooperation” on “climate action” and the Paris Agreement with Beijing, no doubt causing amusement and joy among members of the CCP’s Politburo.

    It’s not just China that benefits. In fact, congressional researchers that state-backed Russian energy interests were funding U.S. “green” groups opposed to U.S. energy via a shell company in Bermuda called Klein Ltd.

    The regime in Venezuela, too, is laughing all the way to the bank as the Biden administration sabotages U.S. energy and begs the Maduro dictatorship to send oil to America.

    To be clear, I don’t begrudge the CO2 emissions of China or anyone else. In fact, many scientists have told me that more of this “gas of life” would be enormously beneficial for the planet and humanity.

    Retired Princeton physics professor Dr. William Happer, who served as Trump’s climate adviser, told me years ago at a climate conference we both spoke at that the planet needed more CO2 and that plants were designed to live in an atmosphere with quite a bit more CO2 than the planet currently has.

    Plus, human emissions of CO2 make up a fraction of 1 percent of all the so-called “greenhouse gases” present naturally in the atmosphere.

    To summarize, if one truly believes that CO2 is bad for the climate, shipping U.S. production and industry to China is the worst possible way to deal with it. Logically, then, the policymakers behind this must have an ulterior motive.

    Of course, the CCP loves the Paris deal: They do nothing but build more coal plants to power the industries and factories fleeing America for China as the U.S. government forces the United States to commit economic suicide.

    This isn’t just an economic or “climate” issue, either. As the United States is “de-developed,” the economic destruction produces a major threat to national security. A strong military can’t be funded without a strong economy, obviously.

    It’s time for lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives to shut down the administration’s “climate” policies that do nothing but expand CCP CO2 emissions and harm the United States.

    What Makes Taiwan an ‘Unsinkable Shield’ That the US Can’t Afford to Have Fall to China?


    The Wide Angle
    Brendon Fallon

    U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur called Taiwan the “unsinkable aircraft carrier.” He was referring to its value as a strategic asset in communism-containment during the Cold War. Generations later, Taiwan faces arguably heightened risk of communist invasion: Will China, spurred on by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, make a similar move on Taiwan?

    What should Taiwan be doing to better defend itself? And what should the world be doing to prevent this strategic asset from falling into Chinese communist hands?

    Fauci’s Role in Shaping Natural Origin Narrative


    New Emails Reveal Fauci’s Role in Shaping Highly Influential Paper That Established Natural Origin Narrative | Truth Over News​
    Truth Over News
    Truth Over News
    Jeff Carlson and Hans Mahncke
    There’s new evidence that Dr. Anthony Fauci not only initiated efforts to cover up evidence pointing to a lab origin of COVID-19, but actively shaped a highly influential academic article that excluded the possibility of a lab leak. Fauci’s involvement with the article was not acknowledged by the authors nor by Fauci himself.
    The article, Proximal Origin, argues aggressively for natural origin. While it was known that the authors’ privately thought the virus came out of a Wuhan lab, it had been unclear if the authors had reshaped their views to please Fauci or if Fauci had an active role in shaping the article himself.
    Fauci controls a huge portion of the world’s research funds for virologists and at least three virologists involved in the drafting of Proximal Origin have seen substantial increases in their funding since the paper was first published.

    [Continues from above entry]

    As the colonization of an entire continent was occurring, the United States and the European Union simply sat back and did nothing. One can’t help but feel that their latest projects, the ‘Build Back Better’ and Global Gateway initiatives, are destined to fail. The CCP has an eight-year head start on Washington and Brussels, with the majority of African countries heavily indebted to Beijing.
    The sad fact is this: Even if African countries want to leave the BRI, many of them can’t.

    If in doubt, let me point you in the direction of Uganda, a country whose debt stands at $18 billion, almost 50 percent of its GDP. The country owes most of this debt to China. Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni recently sent a delegation to Beijing to renegotiate the outstanding debt. However, as Nigeria’s Punch Newspaper reported, “the request was turned down,” with the CCP refusing “to allow any alteration in the original terms of the loan agreement.” What does this mean for the East African nation? It’s likely that the Ugandan government will have to “forfeit the Entebbe International Airport”—the country’s only airport.

    China’s “financial assistance” is little more than predatory lending, with collateral in case of loan default coming in many forms, including international airports. What we are witnessing is death by a thousand cuts—an entire continent being swallowed up by the communists in Beijing. Considering Xi Jinping recently promised to invest another $10 billion in Africa over the next three years, expect the Chinese assault to continue.

    The Risks of CCP China’s Digital Yuan Are Understated: Part II

    J.G. Collins
    December 22, 2021

    Epoch Times Commentary Audio PDF

    This is the second of a two-part article articulating the risks of CCP China’s new digital yuan, the e-CNY.

    Part I details the risk to people and businesses in CCP China.

    This Part II addresses the geopolitical and geostrategic risks of the digital yuan to other nations and Western-style democracies.

    The power the CCP will exercise from e-CNY that I described in Part I won’t be limited to the borders of CCP China.

    There is a bigger, looming, threat, and it’s global.

    CCP China’s “Belt and Road Initiative” (BRI) is intended to spread commercial and geopolitical influence in Central, South, and Southeast Asia, as well as into Europe and the Middle East.

    For less developed economies, e-CNY may be a godsend that allows access to payment and banking services, but it’s also a Trojan Horse. While payments can be transferred far more easily in, say, the desolate areas of Afghanistan, they can also be monitored, controlled, and prohibited.

    So if the e-CNY becomes the preferred—or only—currency in your remote part of the world where the CCP is engaged in the BRI, it can sanction behavior via the e-CNY. If you or your local community object to seizing farmland for a BRI development, good luck surviving without what may be your only means of paying or receiving money. You’ll be under the same CCP thumb of control as the common Chinese people.

    But the larger risk is to the global economy.

    One can easily imagine the CCP eventually pushing OPEC and individual oil-producing nations to price their oil in e-CNY and bypass the petrodollar, which has been a critical element of U.S. economic power and foreign policy for nearly half a century. Since many of the countries with which the United States has had disputes, and for which it has imposed sanctions, sit atop oceans of oil, the e-CNY would be an attractive incentive for them to price their oil in CNY.

    Most oil-producing nations, including most OPEC nations, price their oil in U.S. dollars (USD).

    Consequently, nearly every country keeps USD reserves for oil payments and to otherwise participate in the U.S. economy. But those dollars aren’t sitting in a vault; they’re recycled back to the United States as investments, often in U.S. Treasury securities. They help fund our exorbitant deficits and debt. (Even CCP China funds our debt, returning the USD we use to pay for their exports back to the USA as Treasurys, real estate, and equity investments.)

    Were the CCP to succeed in undermining the petrodollar, it would likely significantly reduce the demand for USD and increase demand for CNY. Instead of the USD being the world’s reserve currency, a position it has held since 1944, it would fall back to be among one of several “reserve” currencies, including the euro, the CNY, and the JPY. Theoretically, having achieved an advanced standing as a reserve currency, it’s possible—even likely—that CCP China could then further consolidate CNY’s status by setting the prices for rare earths or even its everyday exports of things like toys, computers, etc. in CNY. (To give you a peek at the world where multiple currencies reign alongside the USD, when President Obama’s then-novice treasury secretary, Tim Geithner, said in 2009 that he was open to a basket of currencies replacing the USD as the world’s reserve currency, the dollar tumbled in moments before Treasury walked Geithner’s comments back.)

    If a good portion of global USD demand disappears because oil starts to be priced in e-CNY, and CCP China further capitalizes from there on its standing as a leading world reserve currency, the United States would have to raise its interest rates to lure foreign investment in our debt securities or, perhaps, devalue the dollar, which would significantly boost inflation.

    Finally, from a geostrategic perspective, the rise of the e-CNY as a reserve currency would allow countries subject to sanctions by the USA or international institutions, like Nato, the EU, or the U.N., to avoid them.

    That’s because those sanctions are usually administered by SWIFT, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, based in Brussels. It’s how funds move around the world. But e-CNY allows anyone with an internet connection to transfer value. The world’s ability to affect the plans of bad actors—often friendly with CCP China—would be significantly hindered, and national and global security risks increased.

    CCP China hopes to introduce the e-CNY as an international currency during the Winter Olympics this coming February.

    Three U.S. senators have requested the U.S. Olympic Committee to prohibit U.S. Olympic Team members from using it, drawing a rebuke from CCP China authorities. The free Western-style democracies that have joined the diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics should follow the senators’ request, as should the U.S. Olympic Committee: Do not submit to pressure, or accept the convenience, of using the e-CNY during the Olympics; avoid it entirely.

    If that cannot be done (i.e., if the only payment option in the Olympic Village is e-CNY), then Olympians should be provided single-use telephones by their respective national Olympic committees, loaded with an e-CNY per diem, to be used exclusively for e-CNY spending. The phones should then be returned to the committees and destroyed at the end of the Olympics to prohibit further CCP surveillance of the athletes.

    Fighting Back
    Federal Reserve Chair Jay Powell, the Federal Reserve, Congress, and President Joe Biden should move with all deliberate speed to finalize an e-USD that can compete head-to-head with the e-CNY. Research has been underway between the Fed and MIT, but that should be addressed with the same urgency of the Space Race or the Missile Gap of the early 1960s.

    The United States also needs to get a handle on its deficits by cutting the costs of government, eliminating lucrative—and blatantly unfair—tax loopholes, such as the tax treatment of carried interest and the home mortgage interest deduction (which only a handful of other countries permit).

    It is vital for the United States economy and for our national security that we continue as the global currency hegemon, whether that be in greenbacks, bank accounts, or a USD CBDC. The United States should lead Nato, in partnership with the EU, Japan, South Korea, Australia, India, and the other Western-style democracies to contain the spread of e-CNY.

    Our future—and the future of the free world—depends on it.

    the Chinese have also demonstrated a satellite precision tracking and maneuvering capability aimed at detecting a nearby U.S. satellite and maneuvering a Chinese satellite away.

    While the rest of the world has been distracted, including by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years, the Chinese PLA has been engaged in a massive modernization program aimed at eclipsing the United States as the world’s top military power by the PRC’s centenary celebration in 2049.

    New aircraft, ships, missiles, satellites, weapons systems, command and control systems, and surveillance capabilities are being developed, produced, and deployed in great numbers at an astonishing rate. All of this modernization and development has been fueled by a misguided U.S. policy that amounts to appeasement of the Chinese regime.

    The U.S. foreign policy establishment—with the able assistance of Henry Kissinger’s “China Hands” since communist China was “opened” in 1972—has facilitated the economic and military growth of the Chinese regime through misguided efforts that are theoretically aimed at “bringing a rogue nation into the international family of nations.” In other words, China had unfettered access to the international system, Western capital, technology, and markets. As if promoting Western values—for example, democracy, free enterprise, and the rule of law—has ever worked with a communist government! That policy has led to the dangerous emergence of a highly aggressive communist-led regime in Beijing that is increasingly asserting itself on the world scene—and is backed by the growing military might of the People’s Liberation Army.

    45 Goals of Communism Listed in Skousen’s Book Published in 1958

    Herlong read the following goals during his 1963 speech:

    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, and policymaking positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as "normal, natural, and healthy."

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace traditional religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state." (Remember these goals were published to expose them in 1958.) Coincidence?

    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the grounds that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures, which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["] united force ["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

    Skousen predicted at the end of the book that “very soon, one day, you will not find the truth in school or in the library or anywhere, because the truth no longer exists in print. Therefore, you must collect these books.”

    Glenn Beck, an American best-selling author, radio host, and political commentator, said that Skousen had foreseen in 1958 that, “One day, the history of this country would be lost because it would be hijacked by the intellectual elite and communists. I think we have reached that point now.”

    Ben Carson, a well-known neurosurgeon and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Trump administration, said in 2014, “When you read this book, you would think it was written last year.”

    Communists' attempts to take over the world were not only evident in the cold war era, but they were also shown in the 2020 U.S. election. Biden said before the election, “We have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” He never clarified or denied his statement, and the mainstream media remained silent on this, with no journalists investigating the issue. The courts have also ignored numerous voter fraud lawsuits to seek a fair election.

    In light of the various weird phenomena currently occurring in the United States, can we see that the evil communist specter's plans, deliberately made over a long period of time to change the U.S. through “peaceful evolution” are being carried out right now?

    The standards of good and evil are set by the divine. Today, when good and evil are brazenly turned upside down, the United States and the world are at an unusual point in time. Have we made plans for our future? Are we ready? How do we keep to our conscience and faith? How would we pass on to our children and grandchildren a peaceful and happy homeland? All these questions deserve some deep thinking for us all at this most critical moment in history.

    Media and Business

    Shortly after Biden’s inauguration, he replaced key positions in the news media including CEO of the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM), chief and deputy chief of Voice of America (VOA), director of Radio Free Asia, and chief for the Office of Cuba Broadcasting. All of the officials removed were either Trump supporters or those who stood firm against the CCP. With a budget of over $200 million per year, VOA has gradually become a mouthpiece for the CCP in the past few years. It took Trump nearly four years to replace VOA senior management on behalf of the free world. Biden reversed that in two days. Robert Reilly, chief of the VOA, was forcibly taken out of his office by two security officers.

    Similar to media and deep state officials, high tech corporations and businesses have also started the process of retaliation, or pushing people against Trump.

    Numerous social media platforms have blocked Trump’s accounts including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. Google, Apple, and Amazon have stopped service for Parler, an app used by Trump supporters. E-commerce company Shopify pulled Trump organization and campaign stores off its platform. New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has announced to end all contracts the city has with Trump. Commercial real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield cut ties with the Trump organization. The Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) of America has canceled its 2022 championship scheduled at Trump Nation in New Jersey.

    Several banks have followed closely. Deutsche Bank, Signature Bank, Bank United, and Professional Bank have closed Trump’s account and ended business relationships with him. Multinational corporations such as JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, and AT&T have announced to stop political donations to U.S. Congress members who called for a fair election. One mainstream news media called for joint efforts in large corporations to ban employment of Trump team members and supporters.

    History Repeats Itself

    These series of events may look overwhelming, but they have all occurred in the Soviet Union and communist China before. In both communist regimes, as more political movements are launched, everyone would become victims of the totalitarian regime in the end.

    Several months after the October Revolution in 1917, Czar Nicholas II and his family of 10 were executed by the Bolsheviks in July 1918. Their bodies were doused with sulfuric acid and burned with gasoline. Internal conflicts were also ruthless. When Vladimir Lenin was sick, Joseph Stalin, Lev Kamenev, and Grigory Zinoviev formed the top leadership team. Stalin removed Leon Trotsky from his position and targeted his supporters. After expelling Trotsky in 1929, he assassinated him with secret agents in 1940.

    Such a heritage continued in China. Although the CCP claimed itself to be a strong democracy advocate, during the Campaign to Suppress Counterrevolutionaries between 1950 and 1951, it killed about 5 million from the Kuomintang (KMT) government. Through the Great Leap Forward, Anti-Rightist Movement, Cultural Revolution, and Tiananmen Square Massacre, the CCP has suppressed people economically, ideologically, culturally, and politically.

    By the time the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999, the CCP’s tactics had reached an unprecedented level. Although Falun Gong is a peaceful mind-body practice based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, former President Jiang Zemin instituted a policy to “defame Falun Gong practitioners' reputations, bankrupt them financially, and destroy them physically.”

    With state-of-the-art surveillance and big data, the CCP has extended the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners to all aspects of their lives, including their work, life, shopping, and travel. Because of their faith, practitioners as well as their family members risk having their employment terminated and their children expelled from school. On top of that, a large number of practitioners have been detained and imprisoned for their belief, and they have suffered physical torture as well as mental and psychiatric abuse.

    On May 1, 2015, the Chinese Supreme Court announced that it would “docket all cases and accept all litigations.” Based on that, over 200,000 practitioners submitted criminal complaints to the Supreme Procuratorate and Supreme Court against Jiang for launching the suppression of Falun Gong. However, officials illegally returned tens of thousands of cases to the local authorities, leading to many practitioners being arrested and harassed. Some of them were sentenced to jail or died due to torture.

    White House Initiatives: Deviation from American and Traditional Values

    Hours after taking office on January 20, Biden issued 17 executive orders and memorandums. One of them revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, which could cost 70,000 American jobs.

    Similar to other international organizations, the WHO has been heavily infiltrated by the CCP, as seen from its mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic last year. Although it is costing about $500 million of taxpayers’ money every year, it helped the CCP to cover up the disease, allowing it to quickly spread to the entire world. Trump withdrew the U.S. from the WHO. On January 20, however, Biden announced that the U.S. will rejoin the WHO and Anthony Fauci, his chief medical advisor, will be the head of the U.S. delegation to the WHO executive board.

    Another executive order canceled Trump’s ban on foreign equipment that would impose national security threats through electricity. An earlier article from Wall Street Journal revealed that a national security evaluation showed China and Russia had the capability to temporarily halt the operation of U.S. public electricity and gas lines. Trump put that ban in place to prevent this from happening.

    By January 21, the new U.S. Department of State website has removed topics on 5G security, threats from communist China, illegal immigration, threats from Iran, restoring democracy in Nicaragua, and the crisis in Venezuela.

    Another executive order focuses on discrimination prevention on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Nancy Pelosi also proposed to remove terms such as he, she, father, mother, son, daughter, and so on in the upcoming 117th session of Congress.

    It is likely that the Biden administration will come up with more measures to reverse Trump’s efforts in the past four years.

    Darkest Moment Before Dawn

    Within two days after Biden took office, the policy of America First maintained by Trump was revoked by Biden. Instead, Biden and socialists advocated globalism, progressiveness, and egalitarianism. With regard to the CCP regime, the Biden administration reversed the tough position from the Trump era. It is similar to what CCP official Di Dongsheng had described, the conflicts between the U.S. government would be easily resolved due to the intimacy between the two countries. In other words, the spirit of freedom and democracy has been lost, and it is replaced with money, sexual freedom, racial supremacy, and terror.

    Karl Marx referred to communism and socialism as science. But historians such as Paul Johnson and Arnold Toynbee found it childish and impractical. Unfortunately, this has been confirmed once again in the U.S. From the deep state-controlled U.S. Supreme Court, Capitol, White House, to Wall Street, high tech corporations, and news media, people have discarded faith, freedom, and morality. No matter how good an ideology may appear, without faith, freedom and morality, it would be eventually weeded out by history.

    What happens in the U.S. today also gives everyone an opportunity to recognize the nature of the CCP, communism, and socialism. Exactly what do we want this world to be? As an individual, how can we contribute towards a better, more sustainable society? The process may be painful, but once we learn the lesson, tomorrow will be better.

    Businessman Joe Oltmann also provided inside information about Coomer, who is a supporter of the Antifa organization. He said that Coomer had assured Antifa members that Trump would never win the election because of his planning.

    After Oltmann publicized the information, however, Coomer’s account was closed by Twitter.

    After the Mueller investigation failed and the Democrats’ impeachment scheme failed, this was their final Hail Mary to try and oust from office a duly elected President of the United States.

    One netizen wrote, “Since the dawn of time, justice has never been absent even though it might arrive late. It seems now that Trump’s re-election is still undecided, but that’s not the cliff’s end. If the election has been smooth without any obstacles, we won’t be able to see the real value of justice. If the evil doesn’t jump out to do evil, the battle between good and evil can’t shock everyone’s conscience. It’s not that the divine is backing off, but He is rather making choices. The salvation and joy after the final call will be written into the permanent witness of the history.

    “Our hearts are beating so fast. It’s not because we can’t see the light in front of us, but we are excited that the moment for the evil to be eliminated is within touch.”

    No one can redeem the Chinese Communist Party’s fate to be disintegrated and communism will be no more.
