Wednesday, March 1, 2023 - This Is War, Compromised By Communists, Biden's Age

“This Is War”


As we have repeatedly warned, communist China is preparing for war with the United States.  Beijing is not a trading partner or even a competitor.  The brutal, genocidal communist regime is an enemy of freedom. 


They’re late to the game, but it’s good that Democrats and Republicans, at least in the House of Representatives, are finally starting to seriously address the threats from communist China.


Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth made a shocking statement this week that hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. Speaking at the American Enterprise Institute, Wormuth said:


“If we got into a major war with China, the United States homeland would be at risk as well with both kinetic attacks and non-kinetic attacks — whether it’s cyberattacks on the power grid or on pipelines. . . They are going to go after the will of the United States public. They’re going to try to erode support for a conflict.”


Or they just might release a deadly virus from a “weather balloon” that flies across our country. 


If that sounds far-fetched to you, think again.  Communist China is already waging chemical warfare against us.  But don’t take my word for it.


Testifying before the United States Senate this morning, Attorney General Merrick Garland was asked about the fentanyl crisis, and he said this:


"It's a horrible epidemic, but it's an epidemic that's been unleashed on purpose by the Sinaloa and the new generation Jalisco cartels."


Garland is only half right.  Yes, it’s being done on purpose, but there’s an even bigger threat behind the cartels.


Last year, Drug Enforcement Administration chief Anne Milgram told ABC News:


“What we know is that China is providing chemicals to Mexico, to the criminal drug networks that are then mass-producing these fake prescription pills. . . But there's no Xanax, no Oxy, no Percocet in them. They’re fentanyl.”


The Biden Administration knows that record numbers of Americans are being deliberately poisoned by communist China, and yet it is doing nothing to secure our borders or to seriously confront communist China for this act of aggression.


Angel Mom Rebecca Kiessling, who lost her two sons to fentanyl poisoning, told members of Congress yesterday, “This is a war!  Act like it!  Do something!” 


She’s absolutely right.  And for this reason alone, Joe Biden deserves to be impeached.




Compromised By Communists


Secretary Wormuth’s comments about communist China trying to “erode American support” for any conflict against China were particularly interesting. 


As I noted yesterday, Beijing has many “allies” in the United States because it has been working for decades to exploit our openness and freedoms in order to compromise key individuals.


We just got one high-profile example of how communist China compromises people. 


Over the weekend, Elon Musk tweeted his belief that COVID-19 came out of the Wuhan lab.  The Global Times (an official mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party) immediately fired back, posting on social media, “Elon Musk, are you breaking the pot of China?”


That might seem like an odd phrase to most Americans, but to the Chinese it’s an idiom similar to “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.”  In other words, Musk has been officially warned by the Chinese Communist Party that his considerable business interests in China are now at risk.


This is nothing unusual.  It’s exactly what every American CEO who invests in China is subjected to on a regular basis.  You cannot do business in China without dealing with the Chinese Communist Party. 


The Chinese have bragged about their influence over “the people at the top of America’s core inner circle.” 


Beijing got U.S. social media “influencers” to parrot communist propaganda during the latest Olympic Games. 


Knowing that liberals are soft on socialism, the communist Chinese have infiltrated our college campuses for decades with Confucius Centers.  Republicans were susceptible on free trade, and multinational corporations wanted bigger profits. 


They launched elaborate influence operations compromising politicians from mayors to congressmen, and even the president’s family.


Some Christian leaders have been weak on this issue, and I really don’t know why, given communist China’s persecution of Christians.


When Dr. James Dobson and I fought efforts to give communist China special trade status, we were attacked by the “good capitalists” at the Wall Street Journal editorial board.  Dr. Dobson and I – not communist China – were the problem.  A prominent pastor wrote a guest editorial in the Wall Street Journal attacking me by name. 


Here’s the bottom line:  Isolating Russia in its conflict with Ukraine was easy because Russia didn’t have many allies here in America.  But isolating China will be far more difficult because far too many American capitalists have been compromised by the Chinese communists.




Biden’s Power Grab


The latest Fox News poll asked registered voters about Joe Biden’s scheme to make up to $20,000 in student loan debt disappear.  Only 49% said he did not have the authority to do that, while 44% said he did.


What Biden attempted to do was outrageous and unfair.  It’s a clear-cut issue to me and to many conservatives. 


Yet, we’re seeing the same deep division on this fairly simple issue that we’re seeing on virtually everything else.  (It’s also a damning indictment of the sorry state of civics education in our public schools!)


But Biden was determined to galvanize an important part of the left’s coalition, and it worked.  For the half of the country that opposed Biden’s power grab, it didn’t drive enough of them to vote, although the prospect of growing left-wing authoritarianism should have motivated them.




Biden’s Age


In a recent interview, Joe Biden was asked about his age as he ponders running for reelection.  “It’s legitimate for people to raise issues about my age,” Biden said. “It’s totally legitimate. . .  And the only thing I can say is watch me.”


Well, we have been, Joe, and that’s what worries us!


Last night, Tucker Carlson addressed these growing concerns, arguing very persuasively that Biden’s age now defines him.


And conservatives aren’t the only ones concerned about Biden’s advanced age.  Numerous polls show that Democrats aren’t excited about Biden running again, presumably because they’re worried that he isn’t up to the job. 


In fact, one Democrat is saying so publicly.  Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) told The Atlantic this week:


“In the business world, if the dominant brand in a category had favorability ratings like the current president does, you would see a number of established brands jump into that category.  Believe me, there are literally hundreds in Congress who would say the same thing, but they simply won’t f---ing say a word.”
