America Must Disentangle Itself From China

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Never let a good crisis go to waste. – If the China virus produces no other positive outcome, at least it has clearly demonstrated to anyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavities that our country can no longer afford to be entangled in any real way with the Chinese communist government. Let’s look at just some of the reasons why:

In a globalist world, secrecy kills. – Communist governments by their very nature are dishonest and secretive. They must take so many repugnant actions in order to exert control over the masses, actions that they can never allow civilized nations to see if they are to be allowed entre’ to global markets. As Axios detailed in a story Wednesday evening, the ChiComs’ secretive nature where coronavirus is concerned has had a devastating impact on the global economy and threatens to cost hundreds of thousands of human lives.

From the Axios story:

Axios has compiled a timeline of the earliest weeks of the coronavirus outbreak in China, highlighting when the cover-up started and ended — and showing how, during that time, the virus already started spreading around the world, including to the United States.

Why it matters: A study published in March indicated that if Chinese authorities had acted three weeks earlier than they did, the number of coronavirus cases could have been reduced by 95% and its geographic spread limited.

This timeline, compiled from information reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the South China Morning Post and other sources, shows that China’s cover-up and the delay in serious measures to contain the virus lasted about three weeks.

That’s right: 95% of what you are seeing happening today in America and the rest of the world is directly the result of ChiCom dishonesty and secrecy. There simply must be a price to be paid for this level of mendacity.

ChiCom money corrupts other countries. – You can start this with the activities of Joe and Hunter Biden related to China while Quid Pro Joe was Vice President and Obama’s “point man” for China policy. Joe takes Hunter on a trip with him to China, and a week later Hunter’s fledgling firm secures $1.5 billion in Chinese largesse. If you don’t think this rank influence peddling corrupted Biden’s decision making related to U.S. foreign policy, I don’t even know what to say to you.

Then you have the way in which Chinese investments in American media operations have turned half of the White House press corps into blatant ChiCom stooges. After a reporter for OAN, Chanel Rion, asked President Trump how he feels about so many of her colleagues basically parroting ChiCom propaganda in their corrupt reporting yesterday, she was mercilessly harassed by those same colleagues for the rest of the day. After harassing Rion, those corrupt reporters then turned back to parroting ChiCom talking points.

Make no mistake about this: The content and tenor of what these “reporters” put onto the airwaves is dictated from the top down in these corrupt news organizations. Most, if not all of those corporations are heavily entangled with and dependent upon ChiCom money, and money talks, with these corrupt reporters serving as the mouthpiece. This is why you see these people react so emotionally every time President Trump correctly refers to this current plague as a virus that originated in China.

Supply chains are the economy’s life’s blood. – The one saving grace of our financial entanglements with China is that China’s economy is even more reliant on American money than vice versa. When we are more dependent on a communist country for pharmaceuticals and antibiotics than we are dependent on the Middle East for oil, we are enormously vulnerable as a country. Were China not so reliant on U.S. money, we would probably already be suffering from interruptions in pharmaceutical supplies. This cannot be allowed to stand.

It is an act of outright insanity to allow the very health of our citizens to be in the hands of a communist government. This must change, and this crisis affords the President and members of congress who aren’t also in the pockets of the ChiComs the opportunity to force the change. We need new regulations requiring the entire supply chains of critical goods like pharmaceuticals to be contained within our borders.

Here’s the good news. – The entire Trump economic plan from Day 1 has been designed to gradually force the decoupling of the U.S. economy from China. A big part of making America great again is to bring U.S. manufacturing, U.S. supply chains and U.S. jobs back home from China and other parts of the world. This is what Trump’s trade and tariff policies have been working to achieve.

Now, we have this crisis, caused entirely by ChiCom dishonesty and secrecy, that gives the President an opening to accelerate that process. It seems increasingly likely that setting the stage for taking some aggressive action in this realm is why the President has been so focused on making sure everyone understands that China brought this problem to our shores. The ChiComs understand this, which is why they and their corrupt media toadies in the U.S. have responded to the President’s use of the term “Chinese virus” in such panicked tones.

This is what Donald Trump promised to do throughout his campaign for the presidency, and this is one of the main things we elected him to do. No president in American history has been so myopically focused on keeping the promises made during his campaign as Trump has been.

Decoupling from China is an enormous challenge, but Donald Trump has proved repeatedly throughout his adult life that enormous challenges are his favorite kind.

That is all.

James Baker Flips and Sydney Powell Lowers the Boom

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Has ex-FBI General Counsel James Baker turned state’s evidence in the Barr/Durham criminal probe? –  You be the judge.

Last night, Ned Ryun, CEO and Founder of American Majority, appeared on One America News with host Jack Posobiec. The interview covered yesterday’s epic evidentiary tour de force in the Gen. Mike Flynn trial [more on that later] by badass attorney Sydney Powell and ended with Ryun’s startling claim that multiple former FBI/DOJ officials have confirmed to him that Baker is now a cooperating witness with Barr and Durham. Here is the vido clip of that interview, followed by a transcript:

For those of you dinosaurs who, like me, still like to read stuff, here is a transcript of the interview:

Posbiec: Two very important reports last night. First, that Barr and Durham are now conducing a criminal investigation. Second, that here comes Sydney Powell, in the Flynn Case, laying out what essentially is a conspiracy by high-level officials at the FBI and CIA working to entrap General Mike Flynn.

Ryun: Yeah, Jack, if all of these reports are true, and it’s increasingly looking like it, what we have suspected for months, that Barr and Durham were interested in getting to a criminal investigation. If this is true, they will get to the bottom of this.

The fact that we now see Durham has called grand juries. I think actually, Jack, this didn’t happen just in the last few days. I think that Durham has probably convened a grand jury weeks ago. But the amazing part is that the left, the administrative state players, the Democrats, their propagandists in the media tried to cow Bill Barr when he said that he thought there might have been spying that took place months and months ago, they tried to cow him into not pursuing this.

Bill Barr is going to pursue this, and I want to remind the listener, the viewers of this, Jack: Not only does he have experience and was at the CIA, and obviously was AG [under Bush 41] and has a lot of experience with the DOJ, people forget that Bill Barr was in private corporate practice for years. And you know what he was doing? He was a defense lawyer against government intrusion and abuse.

Bill Barr, I am convinced of this, is determined to not only get to the bottom of how this started and who abused their power, but he wants to set things right.

Posobiec: Sydney Powell has introduced into evidence the fact that Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, working together, actually edited and altered the 302 interview of General Flynn to make it appear that he had lied. What does that mean?

Ryun: The most important thing that we have to focus on is there have to be consequences. I’ve said this for months: There have to be consequences, there has to be jail time. All of this is based off trust. And I want the listeners and viewers to understand this: The law enforcement regime and the surveillance state here in the U.S. ultimately all come down to one word: Trust.

That trust has been shattered. Our trust in institutions, our trust in the people who actually are inside of those institutions have been shattered. And the only way that you restore that trust is for there to be consequences for their actions, and those consequences? Jail.

Posbiec: We have long questioned who exactly was it that leaked the highly-classified transcript of General Flynn’s phone call with the Russian ambassador. In this filing, Sydney Powell is stating that it was James Baker, the general counsel of the FBI, and that the Washington Post ran it at the urging of James Clapper.

Ryun: Yeah, no, I don’t doubt that. I do believe James Baker was guilty of leaking, I believe he did some things that he will have to bear the consequences for. But I’ve talked with some former high-level DOJ officials, Jack, who worked with James Baker back in the day. They believe that he is actually Witness #1 for Durham and Barr, that he is actually providing evidence against others inside of this entire investigation.

Let’s not forget: Not only was he general counsel at the FBI, he was also the FISA guy at the DOJ. I believe that he based a lot of what he did in the FISA process off trusting others. According to these sources, he has been used and abused, and he is actually being helpful to Barr and Durham. I think he will have to bear the consequences for some of his actions that I believe he is guilty of, but at the same time I think he’s being extremely helpful.

Posobiec: So, what you’re saying is that Baker has flipped.

Ryun: I do believe Baker has flipped based on my sources that have known and worked with Baker for years.

Posbiec: Thank you so much for being on with us today.

[End]

If Baker really has flipped, that is an enormous development in this investigation, since he will know where all the bodies are buried. Let’s hope it’s true.

As for Ms. Powell’s amazing filing of evidence in the Flynn Case on Friday, the folks over at The Conservative Treehouse have a terrific piece detailing and analyzing all of it, and you should check it out. It is long, but it is also a must-read for anyone hoping to understand how Strzok, Page and other FBI skunks attempted to frame Gen. Flynn.

For those of you who just like to look at videos, here is an interview Ms. Powell conducted with Lou Dobbs on Friday:

That is all. For now, anyway.
