The Coming Biden/Putin Train-Wreck Summit

by Dr. Ron Paul: I have my doubts whether the Putin-Biden summit in Geneva will take place later this month, but even if somehow it is pulled off, recent Biden Administration blunders mean the chance anything of substance will be achieved is virtually nil.

The Biden Administration was supposed to signal a return of the “adults” to the room. No more bully Trump telling NATO it’s useless, ripping up international climate treaties, and threatening to remove troops from the Middle East and beyond. US foreign policy would again flourish under the steady, practiced hands of the experts.

Then Biden blurted out in a television interview that President Putin was a killer with no soul. Then US Secretary of State Antony Blinken discovered the hard way that his Chinese counterparts were in no mood to be lectured on an “international rules-based order” that is routinely flouted by Washington.

It’s going to be a rough ten days for President Biden. Just as news breaks that under the Obama/Biden Administration the US was routinely and illegally spying on its European allies, he is preparing to meet those same allies, first at the G7 summit in England on June 11-13 and then at the June 14th NATO meeting in Brussels.

Make no mistake, Joe Biden is up to his eyeballs in this scandal. Ed Snowden Tweeted late last month when news broke that the US teamed up with the Danes to spy on the rest of Europe, that “Biden is well-prepared to answer for this when he soon visits Europe since, of course, he was deeply involved in this scandal the first time around.”

Though Germany’s Merkel and France’s Macron have been loyal US lapdogs, the revelation of how Washington treats its allies has put them in the rare position of having to criticize Washington. “Outrageous” and “unacceptable” are how they responded to the news.

Russia has been routinely accused (without evidence) of malign conduct and interference in internal US affairs, but it turns out that the country actually doing the spying and meddling was the US all along – and against its own allies!

Surely this irony is not lost on Putin.

Biden has bragged in the US media that he would be taking Putin to task for Russia’s treatment of political dissidents like Alexei Navalny. Biden wrote recently in the Washington Post, that when he meets Putin, “I will again underscore the commitment of the United States, Europe and like-minded democracies to stand up for human rights and dignity."

Perhaps President Putin will remind him of how the Biden Administration continues the slow-motion murder of Julian Assange for the non-crime of being a journalist exposing government misdeeds.

Perhaps Putin will remind Biden of how US political dissidents are being treated, such as the hundreds arrested for what the Democrats and the mainstream media laughably call the “January 6th Insurrection.” Many of these non-violent and unarmed protesters have been held in solitary confinement with no chance of bail, even though they have no prior arrests or convictions. Most await trial on minor charges that may not even take place until next year.

The Washington foreign policy establishment is hopelessly corrupt. The weaponization of the US dollar to bring the rest of the world to heel is backfiring. Only a serious change in course – toward non-interventionism and non-aggression – can avert a disaster. Time is running out.

Biden Bashes America, Teachers Embrace Hate, Trump On The Stump

by Gary Bauer: Biden Bashes America
The first week of June is a time when we remember a big event that defines America. It's an event that we want every child to understand and appreciate. It's the sort of thing that should inform how they view America.

You probably think I'm referring to D-Day when thousands of Americans died on the beaches of Normandy, fighting to liberate Europe. And you're right.

In fact, we felt it was so important that we issued a special report on Sunday honoring the heroes of D-Day, and urging readers to remind their children and grandchildren about the significance of the day. But that's not what the president felt was important to remember this weekend.

On Saturday, the Biden White House issued a statement marking the 40th anniversary of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, but there was no statement at all from the White House remembering the 77th anniversary of D-Day.

On Sunday, Biden tweeted about the Tulsa Race Massacre because to the left that's what every child should think about when they think about America.

In the left's fevered mind, one riot in one city one hundred years ago overwhelms what America did to defeat the greatest evil the world has ever seen.

When I was under secretary of education, I often said that history is written by the victors. If the left succeeds in the complete take over of our institutions, our children will only know about an America that is defined by its sins, and they will know nothing about its triumphs for freedom around the world and racial equality here at home.

My friends, we are fighting many important battles. But this battle -- the battle for the heart and soul of America -- is one of the most important and most urgent.

Teachers Embrace Hate
Last month, the San Francisco teachers' union publicly endorsed the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. The resolution approved by the teachers' union declared their support for the Palestinian people, accused Israel of being an apartheid regime and committing war crimes, and called on the Biden Administration to cut off aid to Israel.

The BDS movement is anti-Semitic. Period. Full stop. There's no question about that, as its founders have repeatedly made clear.

Unfortunately, San Francisco isn't alone. The Los Angeles teachers' union has scheduled a September vote on a similar resolution.

Los Angeles has the second largest Jewish population in the United States. Jewish parents in California are saying publicly that they fear for their children given the rise in anti-Semitic attacks and now these public endorsements of anti-Semitism by so-called "educators," who are utterly ignorant about the most democratic nation in the Middle East.

In a recent interview, the leaders of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations warned, as I have, that anti-Semitism is growing on the political left. They were especially critical of the connection with "progressive intersectionality," which demands that all left-wing movements toe the same line on all issues.

The progressive left increasingly views the world's only Jewish state not as a bastion of freedom and tolerance, but as a "white settler colonial nation" that is "oppressing people of color."

"We have seen how Black Lives Matter and others have been turned through intersectionality into anti-Israel movements, which have strong anti-Semitic components," said William Daroff.

The ancient evil of anti-Semitism is a sign of serious sickness in any society, no matter where it emerges. As an evangelical Christian, I will always stand proudly with our Jewish brothers and sisters, and I will always stand proudly with the state of Israel.

Twitter, Trump & Human Rights
Last week, President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria tweeted something that Twitter found objectionable, so they deleted Buhari's tweet. President Buhari then announced that Twitter was banned in Nigeria.

Needless to say, Twitter found Nigeria's ban objectionable and issued the following statement:

"We are deeply concerned by the blocking of Twitter in Nigeria. Access to the free and #OpenInternet is an essential human right in modern society. We will work to restore access for all those in Nigeria who rely on Twitter to communicate and connect with the world."

Donald Trump, who has been permanently banned from Twitter, should call Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and demand that his human rights be immediately restored.

Facebook, Fauci & Freedom
As the evidence grows that COVID-19 originated in the Wuhan lab (here, here, here and here), we desperately need a reckoning over the role the political left, Big Media and Big Tech played in shutting down any discussion of the truth of communist China's responsibility.

All these entities have interests in communist China. And it was essential for them that the virus be thought of as "the Trump virus," not the "China virus" or the "Wuhan virus."

We now know that very early in the pandemic, Dr. Fauci was colluding with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to shutdown "conspiracy theories," including the lab leak theory. So, when the left was shutting down our schools and businesses, they were also shutting down any serious discussion of how we got into this mess.

While Twitter insists that a free and open Internet is an essential human right, columnist Michael Barone correctly observed that "Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook has become the most effective suppressor of freedom of speech in American history."

Freedom is a two-way street. But having a right to one side's propaganda is not freedom. Censoring social media is not allowing us the freedom to think, it's telling us what to think. That's totalitarianism.

Trump On The Stump
Former President Trump thinks big and outside the box. During an address this weekend to the North Carolina Republican Party, Trump declared that communist China owed the world reparations of $10 trillion for the death and destruction caused by COVID-19. He's absolutely right.

Whether this was a natural occurrence or something manipulated at the Wuhan lab that either accidentally leaked out or was intentionally unleashed, communist China's deceitful actions in the early days of the pandemic are responsible for millions of deaths and trillions of dollars in economic damage.

Every American institution -- from our woke corporations to our universities, from our think tanks to professional sports teams -- should reevaluate its relationship with communist China. And by that I mean they should be cutting those relationships.

I am sick and tired of the fake argument that our involvement will bring change to China. It's not happening!

The only change taking place is that powerful interests in the United States are being corrupted and silenced by communist China's growing influence.

The Lethal Wages of Trump Derangement Madness

In their uncontrolled aversion and detestation, Trump haters suspended all the rules of empiricism, logic, and rationality—and people died as a result.
Victor Davis Hanson
by Victor Davis Hanson
: Think about it: For about five years, anything candidate, president-elect, and President Trump said or did, the media, the Left, and progressive popular culture opposed in Pavlovian fashion.

Anything that Trump touched was ridiculed or discredited—regardless of evidence, data, or cogency. The merits of a Trump policy, a Trump assessment, a Trump initiative were irrelevant—given the primordial hatred of the Left of all things Trump: the president, the person, the family.

Under the reductionist malady of Trump Derangement Syndrome, facts and logic did not matter. Instead, anything not said or done in opposition to Trump empowered the supposed existential Trump threat. Ironically, some of the most deductive and reductionist Trump haters were supposedly professionals, the highly educated, and the self-proclaimed devotees of the Enlightenment. And yet in their uncontrolled aversion and detestation, they suspended all the rules of empiricism, logic, and rationality—and people died as a result.

Most Americans did not care much when the apparently sane went completely insane in their irrational hatred of Trump. Few cared whether Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) wished to destroy his career in trying to predicate his crackpot policies in opposition to Trump. Who worried that Anthony Fauci seemed to have tarnished his distinguished career by his anti-Trump triangulations? Did it matter to anyone that the obsessed Lincoln Project grifters were rendered utterly disgraced, or that the NeverTrumpers were left irrelevant and inert by their irrational and uncontrollable venom?

Yet, existentially hating everything Trump said or did—as opposed to expressing political opposition to him and his policies—did not just implode elite careers. It also turned deadly. The result of such knee-jerk revulsion was a great deal of damage to the country in general and unnecessary deaths of Americans in particular.

For over a year, anyone who questioned the official NIH/NIAID/Fauci narrative that the COVID-19 pandemic was the result of a new viral mutation that had jumped to humans from bats (or pangolins)—perhaps carved up in the Wuhan wet market—was attacked both personally and professionally. Why? Mostly because Trump himself had questioned just that improbable hypothesis. And Trump certainly could not be right. But even if he were, it was still the moral thing to say he was not.

Connecting the dots of a biosafety level-4 virology lab, at or near the first recorded cases of COVID-19, was a mortal sin — simply because Trump had alleged just that. Instead, we were to discount the twisted relationships between the known gain-of-function viral research going on in the lab, the absence of any known animal infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the connections of the lab with the Chinese military, the lab’s known lax safety record, the systematic efforts of the Chinese Communist government and the World Health Organization to lie about the origins and nature of the virus, the year-long effort to stonewall Wuhan investigations, and the conflict-of-interest statements, behaviors, and policies of prominent American health officials who routed funding to gain-of-function research at Wuhan.

Instead, we were to believe a Chinese/American media-fed narrative of a sick bat, far from Wuhan, infected with SARS-COV-2 (any such culprits are as yet still undiscovered) that jump-started a chain of mutations that eventually turned the pathogen into a human strain that became a highly infectious pandemic in a way not seen since the Spanish flu over a century ago.

Had the country removed such knee-jerk, venomous hatred from the equation, and instead encouraged scientists to examine the evidence in disinterested fashion in early 2020, then we might have known what we are only beginning to learn now—a year earlier and with hundreds of thousands of Americans perhaps still alive.

In the months when COVID-19 was sweeping the country, frontline doctors the world over were desperately seeking to recalibrate known drugs, through modeling and theories that they possessed anti-viral or anti-inflammatory properties useful for either attenuating the virus or ameliorating the lethal “cytokine storm” immune reaction.

Doctors in poor countries such as India were attracted to one, hydroxychloroquine, an old, cheap, anti-malarial drug, generally recognized as safe and also known for its efficacy in treating inflammatory diseases such as lupus.

When stories surfaced that both American and European doctors had independently claimed clear effectiveness of the drug in treating some COVID-19 patients, Trump in reaction tweeted that it couldn’t hurt to take the drug, either as a medicine or a prophylactic. Rumors swirled that he had taken the drug himself.

Furor ensued. Outrage followed. And soon the time-tried hydroxychloroquine was considered an existential evil on par with Trump himself. If prior to Trump, the drug had been hailed by the United Nations as an essential medicine, especially in poor countries for its dirt-cheap cost, effectiveness, and general safety, suddenly it was now considered little more than a toxic witch’s brew. Fauci’s legions demonized the drug and soon it sometimes proved illegal for doctors to prescribe hydroxychloroquine for off-label usages.

“Double-blind” studies supposedly “proved” that the drug was useless, even though there was not comprehensive research conducted at different dosages and at different stages of the COVID-19 disease. Additional reports from India that some doctors there felt that the sudden widespread use of hydroxychloroquine and the anti-parasitical drug Ivermectin were responsible for decreases in COVID-19 lethality were likewise mocked.

Now we read this week that a new study conducted at the Saint Barnabas Medical Center, New Jersey, found that when the dosages of hydroxychloroquine were calibrated and adjusted by patient weight, and fortified by the antibiotic azithromycin, there was a more than 100 percent increase in survival rates among COVID-19 patients—without any correlation to heart arrhythmias.

More specifically in this context, maverick frontline doctor and infectious disease specialist Dr. Stephen Smith, of the nonprofit Smith Center for Infectious Diseases and Urban Health, recently argued that perhaps 100,000 lives might have been saved had the medical guild not demonized the drug and utterly dismissed it. Note that we are learning that once-heralded, far more expensive, and difficult to administer drugs, such as plasma therapy and Remdesivir, offered little efficacy in treating COVID-19. Why were the latter drugs considered legitimate experimental protocols in desperate times to treat the seemingly untreatable disease, but not hydroxychloroquine?

The answer may be that Trump advocated the latter and not the former. Ergo, the safe, cheap, and well-known hydroxychloroquine was transmogrified into deadly and useless, and “the jury is still out” on plasma therapy and Remdesivir.

We are now in a surreal relationship with Russia. Vladimir Putin is capable of anything and everything, especially when appeased as the Obama Administration’s 2009-2015 “reset” policy demonstrated. But we know now that he and Donald Trump did not conspire or “collude” to rig the 2016 election, despite the false assertions of the charlatan Christopher Steele, the media, the FBI hierarchy, John Brennan’s CIA, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and multiple top officials in the Obama Justice and State Departments.

In a Trump nanosecond, we went from the prior Obama appeasement of Putin (or is that too kind an appraisal, given Obama’s own hot mic, quid pro quo deal with Putin to put the interests of his own reelection campaign above U.S. national security—specifically dismantling missile defense in Eastern Europe if Putin would only calm down and give Obama space during his reelection efforts) to a Cold War-style “Russian Under Every Bed” national mania.

The result was that the Left talked loudly and insanely about Russian “collusion” while carrying a tiny twig. The most dangerous formula in foreign policy is to aggravate, goad, and incite a volatile enemy (with 7,000 nuclear weapons), with no intention of keeping him cornered and caged. Before Trump, we had the Obama reset appeasement of Putin. After Trump, we do again. In both cases, we also get the obligatory anti-Russian rhetoric in a way not accorded to the more dangerous Chinese Communist government.

Now, emboldened hackers, with likely Russian connections, are targeting key U.S. and North American industries, specifically pipelines and meatpacking.

The hackers are diabolically clever and do some of their damage on the following assumptions:

1) an American-obsessed Putin is providing them sanctuary, and in return, they are according him with “deniability of culpability” as fake-independent contractors;

2) both bad actors believe that the Biden Administration, with its carry-over Obama people, will talk trash but in reality either pay ransom to stop the hacking, ignore it, or claim it is a “private industry” matter; and

3) the hackers assume that, secretly, the American Left sympathizes with the hackers’ cynically selected targeting of “fossil fuels” and “environmentally incorrect” meat consumption.

It is almost as if the hackers are saying to Americans, as they cause continental damage and disruption and endanger lives, “What do you care since your government canceled your own pipelines and is demanding less meat consumption? So, why get mad at us for speeding up the implementation of your own agendas?”

If, as some 15th-century Spanish Inquisitor, you damn Trump as a Russian collaborator on no evidence, devour nearly two years of his administration in collusion conspiracies and impeachment, and ignore the fact that Trump had been harder on Russia than any prior president (e.g., more sanctions on the Putin apparat, sales of lethal weaponry to the Ukrainians, efforts to depress oil prices by massive new fracking, pulling out of asymmetrical missile treaties, killing Russian mercenaries in Syria, etc.), then you have destroyed any workable relationship with Russia, pushed it into a de facto alliance with China, and ended up with the sort of dangerous hacking attacks that we now endure and apparently will not or cannot prevent.

The lethal examples of the wages of irrational and deranged Trump hatred are nearly countless. A once calm Trump border is now the scene of utter chaos, misery—and death—as the erstwhile advocates of immigrant children abruptly grow mute. A once calm Middle East and the successful Abraham Accords disappeared and were supplanted by mayhem, death, and destruction. A once-booming energy sector and inexpensive fuels are now mired amid spiking prices at the pump, an end to new federal gas and oil leases on federal lands, the Alaska National Wildlife Reserve put off-limits, and pipeline projects canceled.

Irrationally hating everything Donald Trump touched was not just pathological, it often became downright scary—and deadly—for Americans.

The Federal Government Is Still Trying to Get Into the 5G Wireless Business

Seton Motley
by Seton Motley: The dumbness continues.

In October, this foretold the dumbness.The US Military Is About to Launch Its Largest 5G Experiments Yet:

“The ‘at-scale’ tests could change defense networks, training, and logistics — and how Americans use the Internet.”
This is the GOVERNMENT we’re talking about here. Creators of the Department of Motor Vehicles. And the Post Office. And the Veterans Administration.

Government can’t even renew a driver’s license without hours upon hours of excruciating delay. Government attempting to LEAD THE CHARGE on Fifth Generation (5G) wireless technology advancement – is exorbitantly expensive farce.

Indeed, government wasting our money on “‘at-scale’ tests could change defense networks, training, and logistics — and how Americans use the Internet.” It certainly will do all of those things – for the worse.

We raised the alarm in October….Government 5G? The Deep State Military-Industrial-Complex Looks to Expand Its ‘Unwarranted Influence’:

“The government is S…L…O…W…. And inept. It is patently absurd to pretend government is capable of playing catch-up to the private sector’s many years and tens of billions of dollars’ head-start. Especially on something as technologically sophisticated as 5G.”
And it wasn’t just us.Why a Nationalized 5G Network Is a Bad Idea:

“It would harm America in the long run, not help Washington compete with Beijing.”
Communist China is an annoying double-edged sword for DC. The Feds do nothing about China when they should – and do all sorts of things in the name of China when they shouldn’t.

Like get into the 5G business.Defense Department Further Accelerating 5G Development:

“Michael Brown, director of the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Unit, said the United States is in a superpower race with China.”
Government pretending to know anything about 5G guarantees us at least two terrible outcomes.

We will lose considerable ground in the 5G race. Government taxing people who know something about 5G – to fund their people who do not – is a great way to slow things down and gum them up.

And government will begin imposing all sorts of new, stupid mandates upon private sector 5G. By arriving at all sorts of incorrect conclusions – and to diminish how awful government 5G looks in comparison.

The stupid government mandates are already beginning….DOD-NTIA Open 5G Challenge Could Lead to New Requirements:

“A Defense Department official said DOD’s 5G prototyping is also examining the benefits of hardware and software bills of materials to scrutinize the supply chain.”
Again, this is government’s incompetents arriving at stupid conclusions – and mandating the private sector implement them.

And lest we forget, we already have a booming and burgeoning private sector 5G network. Because we have a highly competitive private 5G marketplace. Into which our private competitors have invested hundreds of billions of dollars.

We are leading the entirety of the planet in 5G technology. Including Communist China. Precisely because we have allowed the private sector – populated by people who know what they are doing – to do what they do.

To justify its 5G inanity – the government is lying about this too:“The US risks being left behind in the battle to deploy 5G, with China viewed as the number one player in the field, the US Department of Defense has warned.”This is a blatant lie. We are leading Communist China – and the rest of the planet – on 5G. And a way you know this is – Communist China even admits it.

Behold Communist China government mouthpiece propaganda outfit China Daily….China to Lead World in 5G Tech by 2025Even Communist China publicly acknowledges they do not currently lead in 5G. And don’t even envision catching up for half a decade.

The US government should – rather than feebly attempt to compete with our private sector – endeavor to assist it.US Government’s Role in the Internet: International Security, Domestic SpectrumIn other words…

International: Deal harshly with bad actors who hack our networks and otherwise attack us.

Domestic: Get as much spectrum as possible to the private sector wireless providers.

Spectrum?:“Spectrum is the airwaves – used for everything wireless. From your cell phone – all the way down to your car key fob.

“Not all spectrum is created equal. Think of it like a Monopoly board. Some of it is Boardwalk and Park Place – some is Mediterranean and Baltic Avenues. And everywhere in between.

“And spectrum – is a finite resource. There’s only so much to go around. And the federal government – holds a LOT of it. Including a lot of the really good stuff.

“So a FUNDAMENTAL component of US policy – must be getting as much spectrum as rapidly as possible to the private sector.”
In other words….To Lead the World in 5G, the U.S. Needs a National Spectrum StrategyYes, please.

Let’s have the federal government working on that – to improve even further our private wireless networks.

Rather than lamely pretending to be a wireless provider – to compete with our private wireless networks.

Because duh.

The Colluders

by Paul Jacob: Big Tech social media companies that once boasted of providing open forums now routinely ban speech that they disagree with — speech about elections, pandemics, Wuhan labs, or what have you.

How much of this suppression is private and independently initiated? How much is imposed at the behest of government officials who are supposed to respect First Amendment rights?

Government officials not only say that people should not say such-and-such; they also, increasingly, either complain that social media companies don’t do enough to gag people or herald the extent to which they do so.

Earlier this year, Reuters reported that “the White House has been reaching out to social media companies including Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet Inc’s Google about clamping down on COVID misinformation. . . .”

Now the American Freedom Law Center is suing Twitter and President Biden so that the question of whether the government is in effect “deputizing” private organizations to assault freedom of speech can be adjudicated.

The Center is filing on behalf of Colleen Huber, a doctor Twitter censored and suspended for saying the wrong thing about COVID-19. Of course, there are many other victims of the same policy, and it the Center seeking class-action status for the lawsuit.

The government has been enlisting social-media moguls as foot soldiers in a propaganda war. Whether this is done openly or behind closed doors, this war on free speech violates the Constitution.

As we must hope the outcome of this legal action affirms.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

Under Biden’s ‘America Last’ Policies who Benefits and who Pays?

The age of America First is decidedly over. “America Last” has returned and it’s the duty of every American to refute these harmful ideas.
by Brett Kimball: Many of the independent, undecided and even Democrat voters who chose Joe Biden over President Trump last November did so in hopes that his “moderate” demeanor would signal a return to some sort of “normalcy.”

However, from the moment he took office on January 20th, Biden has proven himself to be anything by moderate. So far Biden seems far more concerned with pandering to the “AOC” wing of his party while the American people pay the price.

On day one of his presidency, Biden rescinded permits for the Keystone XL pipeline, killing an estimated 40,000 high-paying American jobs with the stroke of a pen. He followed this blatant swipe at the American worker again last week by voicing his approval for Vladimir Putin’s plans to build a similar pipeline through Russia and Germany. Critics say this will only strengthen Russia’s dominance over Western Europe’s gas supply. All this while America went from energy independence under Trump, to gas shortages and price hikes under Biden. Lunch Bucket Joe supports Russian jobs over American workers. And we were led to believe the other guy was the “Russian asset.”

Russia isn’t the only one benefitting from Biden’s policies while the American people reap the consequences. Just this week the president boasted about the amount of time he has spent conferring and traveling with Xi Xin Peng, leader of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The CCP is responsible for countless egregious human rights violations, including but not limited to the internment and subjugation of millions of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang Province. Biden has in the past chocked these abuses up to a simple “difference in cultural norms,” however this week he made the shocking claim that from his discussions with Xi Xin Peng, he has ascertained that the dictator “fully expects to own the US by the year 3035.” Presumably he meant to say “2035”, though neither case bodes particularly well for you or me.

Biden’s foreign policy blunders have also endangered our longtime ally Israel by seemingly reverting to the old “concessions for peace” strategy which had been a proven failure until Trump changed the landscape with his historic peace treaties. While the Abraham Accords have held strong thus far, with none of the countries signed on to those agreements engaging in the conflict or supporting Palestine, the same can’t be said for western leftists. While Biden has continued to send aid to Israel and even stated his belief in their right to defend themselves, he has also continued funneling money to the terrorist regime Hamas, thus fueling the attacks on innocent Israeli citizens. At the same time, the Biden administration continues to feign moral equivalency between the two sides of the conflict, with some party members even calling for him to cut off all US aid to Israel. It is yet to be seen if Biden will bend the knee to his anti-Semitic party affiliates or stand with our true allies. Given his track record so far, I am doubtful.

The Border crisis has been exasperated to unseen degrees under Biden’s “leadership”. His campaign promise to halt all Trump-era border policy enforcement served as an open invitation to tens of thousands of undocumented immigrants. This has led directly to facilities on the border running up to over 700% capacity as of April, with immigrant children sleeping tightly packed together with nothing but an aluminum blanket and the clothes on their back. Progressives, who for years shouted about the inhumanity of the Trump administration’s deportation policies, have been suspiciously quiet on this front. Biden announced this week that he would even seek to bring back all of the more than 940,000 illegals deported under Trump, even hinting at a reparations program, all by executive order and all on the American taxpayer’s dime. The age of America First is decidedly over. The old “pen and phone” ways of the Obama era have made an unwelcome, not to mention unconstitutional return.

President Biden’s outright refusal to voice support for the nations police departments, allowing his radical-left cohorts to pass destructive legislation has led to yet another spike in crime rates especially in major cities across the US. Police are afraid to do their jobs and are resigning en masse, for rightful fear of corrupt Democrat prosecutors who would rather punish them for doing their jobs than enforce the laws in their districts. Innocent people are being killed because all the left cares about is their woke narrative. The military hasn’t escaped the ire of the left either. With intense vetting for “extremism” becoming the primary focus of military higher-ups, and with their definition of “extremism” being expanded to include “right-wing ideologies,” it seems what’s going on is just another witch hunt directed against freedom loving Americans who hold conservative values.

So, who has Biden helped since taking office? Well Russia, China, Hamas and AOC are all getting what they likely paid for, but what about the American people who supposedly elected him? We’ve seen simultaneous gas shortages and price hikes coupled with skyrocketing inflation, unemployment, soaring crime rates, lack of police support, a swift move away from our recently attained energy Independence, and higher tax rates across the board. Not to mention the demagoguery, lies and hypocrisy coming from the administration occupying the white house. America is hurting. So are her citizens. But we can all rest assured that under the watch of Biden and the Democrats, our enemies domestic and abroad will always be just fine. “America Last” has returned and it’s the duty of every American to refute these harmful ideas. If we don’t make our opposition known, we could be headed for a disappointing midterm result in 2022.

Long-Range Strategic Planning & The Green Movement

Marvin L. Covault, Lt.Gen (Ret)
by Marvin L. Covault, Lt General, US Army retired
: The ability to conduct long-range strategic planning is a critical component for the success of any large organization. The US government is a large, very large, organization with almost zero demonstrated ability to build and execute a long-range strategic plan, (hereafter, LRSP). What does that have to do with the Biden administrations Green movement? Everything.

Aside from the Defense Department, politicians and government bureaucrats generally have little or no training or experience in strategic planning. Here is how government “planning” too often works: a politician gets the ball rolling with an idea which morphs into a political movement and may take on a life of its own. Then, it may become a House/Senate bill consisting of a several hundred-page to-do list. After becoming law, it is passed on to government bureaucrats who implement with perhaps thousands of pages of instructions, regulations and new organizations. All of this without a clue as to whether the original idea is doable because they missed the first step in LRSP which consists of executing a very deliberate up-front process to determine the viability of the idea, the art of the possible.

Let’s begin with a short tutorial to describe what LRSP is all about. In its simplest form it is just the answers to the following questions: who, what, when, where, why and how.

Strategic planning must always begin at the end with a coherent vision of the end-state; one that can be clearly articulated in a sentence or two. This first step is a must-do because of the truth in the old saying, “if you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.”

The very next step is to conduct an exhaustive review of limiting factors. For example, does the science exist to make it happen? Can we find and hire the necessary expertise? Do the raw materials exist in the quantities we will need now and for decades ahead? Will the price of our product be reasonable enough for success? What will the competition do? What is the viability of the market for our product? And on and on and on until leaders get to the point where they can determine if the idea is a viable vision or hallucination. It is all about the art of the possible.

To illustrate the above brief comments on the subject of LRSP, let’s look at President Biden’s declaration that we will, “Achieve 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2035″, “Net-zero emissions by 2050” and “Cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030”. Along with those goals, Democrats are pushing to have a majority of US-manufactured cars be electric by 2030 and every car on the road to be electric by 2040. In total that says to we-the-people, shut down the coal/oil/gas-fired electric producing plants and drive electric cars. Are we to believe those statements/directives in any way represent the results of an all-inclusive LRSP? No; not only no but hell no, not even close.

Let’s say that instead of making the above announcement to everyone, President Biden said to his Secretary of Energy, Granholm, “put together a LRSP for those issues”. If the president had set in motion a comprehensive LRSP on energy, what follows is some of what the planners would be considering with their questions, discussions, research and findings.

In a recent Wall Street Journal article, Mark Mills brought to light the fact that the International Energy Agency (IEA), generally regarded as the world’s most important source for energy information, recently released a 287-page report entitled, The Role of Critical Minerals in Clean Energy Transitions.

Here are some highlights and lowlights from that IEA report.
  • Transitioning from today’s energy production (coal, oil, gas, nuclear) to clean energy (wind, solar, batteries) requires minerals, lots of minerals such as lithium, graphite, nickel and what are called, “rare-earth metals”. Demand will explode by an estimated 4,200% (lithium), 2,500% (graphite), 1,900% (nickel) and 700% (rare-earth metals). Supply and demand drive pricing. When these dramatic increases occur and with greater competition for the metals, what will happen to the price of these minerals, and hence the price of a battery-powered car? Raw material costs already account for some 50-70% of total battery costs.
  • All of this mining requires a mining industry, massive transportation, refinement facilities and infrastructure to support them that does not exist and there are no plans to build them. And to do so will cost a least hundreds of billions if not trillions of dollars.
  • Production of an electric car requires six times more minerals than a conventional car. An on-shore wind plant requires nine times more minerals than a natural gas fired plant and a wind turban will need to be replaced in an estimated 20 years. In just the past ten years, as the transition to wind and solar has begun, the minerals needed to produce a unit of energy has increased by 50%. And that effort only increased the wind and solar share of energy production by 10%.
  • With greater demand for minerals there is another long-range consideration, declining resource quality. Already we are experiencing mineral quality falling across a range of commodities. For example, the average copper ore grade in Chile declined by 30% in just the past 15 years.
  • The IEA reported that on average it takes over sixteen years to move a mining operation from discovery to production. Environmental consequences: The new demand for minerals creates a global mining boom that will produce an enormous environmental footprint. First, it demands huge quantities of water and, coincidently, about half the known global lithium and copper sources are in water-shortage areas. Additionally, there will be extensive contamination from acid mining, contaminated drainage and wastewater.
  • The IEA points out that the mining of “energy transition minerals” will occur mainly in countries with “low governance scores”. That is, where corruption and bribery pose high-risk operations.
  • Viability of access to “energy-transition-minerals”, ETM: While the top three global oil and gas producers account for less than 50% of oil and gas supply, the top three producers of key ETMs control more that 80% of global supply. But, most importantly, China controls most of that 80% and today the US isn’t even in the game.
  • To contrast our position today with China, America is now 100% dependent on imports for some 17 key minerals, and, for another 29, over half of our needs are imported thereby creating tremendous vulnerability.
  • The IEA report also poses a critical question on future net carbon savings. Mining, transporting, chemical processing and refining of billions of tons of earth materials will create a new and massive carbon footprint which could conceivably create new carbon emissions in greater volume than that which is saved by driving electric cars.
  • What do we do when we run out of one or more of the essential minerals to support battery energy?
  • What if the cost of producing batteries for vehicles increases the cost of a vehicle out of the range of lower- and middle-class families?
  • The planners would look at the Paris Global Climate Accords and conclude that the accords do nothing to address the IEA revealed shortcomings. Nations set their own goals, nothing is enforceable and there are no penalties for noncompliance. The accords also state that the 139 “developing countries” (which, according to The World Bank, includes China and India) would need assistance from “developed” countries. Wherein India promptly estimated that it would need “at least US $2.5 trillion” in aid by 2030 to achieve its emissions reduction targets.” And then there is China’s “pledge”; they will build hundreds of new coal-fired plants and continue to increase emissions of carbon dioxide at least until 2030.
  • Vehicles currently account for about 30% of US carbon emissions. A single electric car battery weighing 1,000 pounds requires extracting and processing some 500,000 pounds of materials creating a huge carbon footprint. Averaged over a battery’s 7–10-year life, each mile of driving an electric car “consumes” five pounds of earth and, Americans alone, drive some 3 trillion road-miles a year.
  • Replacing the energy output from a single 100-MW natural gas-fired turbine, itself about the size of a residential house (producing enough electricity for 75,000 homes), requires at least 20 wind turbines, each one about the size of the Washington Monument, occupying some 10 square miles of land, requires some 30,000 tons of iron ore and 50,000 tons of concrete, as well as 900 tons of nonrecyclable plastics for the huge blades. With solar hardware, the tonnage in cement, steel, and glass is 150% greater than for wind, for the same energy output.
  • Could we learn some long-range strategic planning lessons from China? In two generations, China has built 500 entire cities from scratch; moved the majority of their1.4 billion population from poverty to the middle class; initiated a global Silk Road infrastructure initiative in underdeveloped countries. By comparison China has 40,000 kilometers of high-speed rail, the US has none; it took ten years for a bus line in San Francisco to pass its environmental review; and it took us 16 years to build the Big Dig tunnel in Boston. China’s emergence as a world leader in commerce and military preparedness is all about long-range strategic planning on a global scale.
Long-range strategic planning begins by answering a long list of questions. This International Energy Agency study goes a long way towards surfacing the critical issues that must be considered to determine a way ahead for any Green movement without just borrowing trillions of dollars to throw at the problem.

This LRSP will demand that we take a close look at the electric vehicle issue.
  • One electric car battery, weighs in at about 1000 pounds. To produce one battery requires digging up and processing about 500,000 pounds of raw materials such as cadmium, cobalt, lead, lithium, and nickel. For example, for some of these type materials, the end product is about one half of one percent of the weight of the material dug out of the ground. Numbers of vehicles: US has about 290 million, there are over 1 billion world-wide.
  • There is some mind-numbing math associated with electric vehicles: Vehicles in the US travel about 3 trillion miles per year. Divide that by 290 million vehicles and we have 10,344 miles per vehicle per year. The average elective vehicle can travel about 200-300 miles and then must be recharged. That means each vehicle battery must be charged about 40 times per year. Forty charges per year for 290 million US vehicles equals 11.6 billion charging actions.
  • CO2 emissions from vehicles is not just a U.S. problem. To achieve success all nations need to be involved. To that point, there are about one billion vehicles in the world today. It would take 250 billion tons of materials to build a battery for every car, once. Currently, electric car battery life is seven to ten years and then we need to dig another 250 billion tons, and again and again. Is that feasible? By the way, replacing one vehicle battery-pack currently costs anywhere from $1000 to $6000. In years ahead when the demand for raw materials increases exponentially, will battery costs be prohibitive for lower and middle-class income families?
Where does the electricity come from to achieve the total annual charging requirements as well as all the other electrical needs? in the Green movement world, it comes from solar and wind production which leads us to more mind-numbing numbers about the tons of minerals to build wind and solar produced electricity.
  • The American Wind Energy Association says it takes somewhere in the range of 200 to 230 tons of steel to make a single wind turbine. The steel tower is anchored in a platform of more than a thousand tons of concrete and steel rebar, 30 to 50 feet across and anywhere from 6 to 30 feet deep. Add to that 45 tons of nonrecyclable plastic blades and 2 tons of rare-earth elements. Then after a life-cycle of around 20 years, start over.
  • If we want wind to produce half the world’s electricity, we will need to build about 3 million more turbines. Three million turbines at 230 tons of steel each equals about 690 million tons of steel. To produce steel for one turbine requires about 150 tons of coking coal and about 300 tons of iron ore, all mined, transported thereby producing hydrocarbons. Will battery-powered vehicles actually give us net zero carbon emissions? Probably not.
  • More bad news. Cement is the second most-consumed resource in the world, with more than 4 billion tons produced globally every year which generates about 8% of global carbon emissions. Then there are the emissions from all the trucks, trains, ships, bulldozers, cranes, and other equipment involved in turbine construction. Again, what will be the net carbon reduction?
  • Another downside to wind is that the turbines are so preposterously expensive that no one would dream of building one unless they were guaranteed a huge government subsidy, also known as tax dollars.
  • Another disturbing question; what do we do for power when the wind doesn’t blow or the sun doesn’t shine? The most obvious answer is that we must maintain, at all times, a fully operational backup power source. Or do we just heat half the houses, run half the manufacturing plants, recharge half the vehicles and cell phones? Because of the requirement for near 100% backup, some experts predict a wind farm’s power will actually cost around $25,000 for every home it powers.
  • The discussion of cement/steel requirement for energy from wind are sobering. I’m sorry to report that energy from solar power requires even more cement and steel than wind turbines to produce the same amount of electricity. Additionally, production of solar panels requires large amounts of silver and indium. Mining of these metals is expected to increase by 250% and 1200% respectively over the next twenty years and some day we will likely run out of both.
  • Solar panels require other “rare-earth” elements which are not currently mined in the US. Demand for these elements is expected to rise 250-1000% by 2050. Access to these metals is questionable. For example, the Republic of the Congo produces 70% of the world’s raw cobalt and China controls 90% of cobalt refining.
And then there are the geopolitical issues associated with global mining of essential minerals to support the gas emission goals issued by the Paris Accords and the Biden administration. What leverage do we have over China to cause them to give us access to the rare metals they control in Africa? Probably none. Will future wars be fought over control of essential mineral deposits? Could be.

The carbon gas issue is a global problem; If the US goes to zero carbon it will not solve the problem unless the other 194 countries become major contributors. So, what if the answer to the math problem tells us there is only enough required minerals on earth to provide a battery to the world’s vehicle fleet only once or twice or ten times. If that is true, and it could be, by the end of this century hundreds of millions of electric vehicles will be in the scrap heap and we will be desperately trying to rebuild the gas and oil industry and cars to again run on gas.

The point being, we must have those answers and empty political sound bites will not provide them.

What will our electric bill look like in a carbon free society? For example, last year about 400,000 natural gas workers produced about 35% of U.S. electric power. The same size labor force, 400,000, accounted for solar’s miniscule 0.9% share. When it comes to solar energy, the outrageous production-to-labor-force ratio is a glaring and expensive.

There are nations that are actively studying the electric vehicle issue; according to a British Professor Kelly, if all of the UK vehicle fleet is replaced with electronic vehicles, they would need the following materials: about twice the annual global production of cobalt; three quarters of the world’s production of lithium carbonate; nearly the entire world’s production of neodymium; and more than half the world’s production of copper. And this is just for the UK’s 32 million vehicles.

OK, you get the picture, there is a tremendous amount of research that must go into the up-front part of LRSP before the leader begins making promises he/she cannot possibly deliver.

The above questions, discussions and discovery is just a small fraction of what the planners would look at for weeks or months just to determine the answer to one question, is this a viable vision or is it hallucination?

All of this data leads us back to the question, can we spend trillions of dollars in support of a political-motivated soundbite that may or may not produce a net loss of carbon emissions and/or may not be feasible given the known quantities of minerals needed?

Recall up front I described the LRSP process as simply answering the questions: who, what, when, where, why, and how. Vision is WHERE the leader is taking the organization. If the vision statement is viable, here is a quick look at how the remainder of the LRSP process will unfold. The next step is mission.

Mission answers WHAT. Mission is a declaration to everyone in the organization, in this case that would be we-the-people, of WHAT it is we are all collectively going to do. Mission is not a paragraph, it is a single, clear, understandable statement.

One of the most memorable and important mission statements in our history was delivered on 25 May,1961 by President Kennedy before a joint session of congress; “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon.” Brief, clear, concise, memorable, repeatable, inspirational and, most importantly, believed to be within the art of the possible.

Next is the leader’s statement of intent. Intent is the most powerful tool available to a leader. A leader who uses intent in strategic planning is letting everyone in the organization inside his or her head. Intent answers WHO, WHEN and WHY. Intent is a few short paragraphs, preferably less than one page. Brevity and clarity are paramount. Who is going to be in charge? What is the timeline from vision to execution? Why are we doing this? During World War II, General Eisenhower famously said, “American soldiers will do anything you ask of them as long as you tell them why.”

The hardest part of any LRST is the strategy piece, determining HOW we are going to proceed from vision to execution; how, in general terms, we are going to get to the end state. Strategy is the long pole in the tent. Without a solid strategy, all we have is empty rhetoric. Unfortunately, many times (particularly in Washington) the strategy is left out of the planning process and without the “how” the process just flounders and ultimately fails, having wasted billions or in this case perhaps trillions of dollars in a failed project.

A LRSP will be a phased operation. It’s a little bit like getting on an airliner; you can’t get a boarding pass until you make a reservation. You can’t go through security until you get a boarding pass. You can’t get on the airplane until you go through security. Phases are absolutely essential and they will be based on objectives achieved, or time-phased or both.

A second reason for phasing is that on day-one of plan execution there is a lot you may not yet know, but more importantly, especially early in the game, you may not know what you don’t know.

In every phase there will be a deliberate process orchestrated by the leader to determine centers of gravity for each new approaching phase. Centers of gravity are persons, places, things or circumstances that are central to success. That is, they can significantly assist in success or can cause failure. Once determined, the centers of gravity become must-watched issues.

LRSP is not rocket science but it can be the key to success for any long-range significant undertaking. In organizations where LRSP is not routinely used (the federal government), that organization will flounder and waste unimaginable amounts of time, energy and money.

THREE FINAL THOUGHTS:
It is a certainty that the scope of increased mining to satisfy mineral requirements will create an enormous, new carbon footprint. The question is, from the totality of the Green movement, will there be a net overall reduction in carbon gases? This must be determined by scientists and engineers, not politicians. We-the-people need to know the answer. And we need to know now.

Secondly, generally speaking the Green movement is based on a false premise and false promises. A principle underpinning of the pro-green argument is that the energy source is “renewable.” Technically, yes wind and sun are renewable. But, in the larger sense, in order to harness that renewable wind and sun it will be necessary to mine, transport and refine literally billions of tons of minerals, many of which are already classified as “rare.” For example, the world needs about 3 million more wind turbines in order to produce 50% of the world’s electric needs. To build 3 million turbines will require mining of about 1 billion tons of iron ore and not one ounce of that iron ore is “renewable.” Then, in about 20 years we replace all 3 million worn out wind turbines with another billion tons of iron ore.

Finally, the vast majority of the 195 countries cannot afford any of the Green movement. Do we print a few extra trillion dollars to bankroll them into Green compliance?

We-the-people need an in-progress-review briefing from our leaders on the status of the long-range strategic plan for the Green movement. Don’t hold your breath.

State Sabotage, Fauci's Follies, Pence In New Hampshire

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer: State Sabotage?
Kudos to Vanity Fair. The outlet has just published an explosive report on various efforts to investigate the origins of COVID-19. Consider these excerpts:

"A months long Vanity Fair investigation, interviews with more than 40 people, and a review of hundreds of pages of U.S. government documents . . . found that conflicts of interest, stemming in part from large government grants supporting controversial virology research, hampered the U.S. investigation into COVID-19's origin at every step.

"In one State Department meeting, officials seeking to demand transparency from the Chinese government say they were explicitly told by colleagues not to explore the Wuhan Institute of Virology's gain-of-function research, because it would bring unwelcome attention to U.S. government funding of it."


So elements of the Swamp were doing everything they could to prevent an investigation into the origins of COVID-19. One memo reveals that an official worried the investigation would "open a can of worms."

Well, what was he worried about? That an investigation would inevitably show that our public health bureaucracy, i.e. Dr. Anthony Fauci, without any consent from the American people, bankrolled dangerous research at the communist Chinese Wuhan lab? Apparently so.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, working with President Trump, did set up an investigative group at the State Department. Those researchers did their best to battle entrenched bureaucrats who refused to consider the obvious – that the virus leaked from the Wuhan lab.

That investigation was unceremoniously disbanded by the Biden White House. But in recent days, as the lab leak theory gained credibility, the Biden White House suddenly reversed course and ordered U.S. intelligence agencies to produce their own report on the origins of COVID-19 in 90 days.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what's going on here.

Biden shut down an investigation he could not control, led by people with strong relationships with Mike Pompeo and Donald Trump, and gave it to the same intelligence community that lied to us for years about President Trump allegedly colluding with Russia.

In my view, what happened was a shell game. Biden killed the investigation that might have resulted in a clear conclusion, forcing him to confront communist China for its responsibility for 600,000 American deaths. Instead, Biden would rather work with communist China on the fake issue of climate change.

There's an additional reason he might not want an independent investigation: It could cause problems for the Biden family's (Hunter Biden's) dealings in communist China.

Reality Check:
While Democrats are pounding the table demanding a high-level commission to investigate the events of January 6th, THIS is the high-level investigation we most urgently need right now.

But we must be realistic. Communist China has had 18 months to destroy evidence. They had that time because every time Donald Trump or any other conservative tried to get to the truth, the legacy media, social media and the entire Democrat Party apparatus accused conservatives of promoting conspiracy theories.

And for good measure, they suggested that anyone trying to blame communist China was a white supremacist stoking anti-Asian hatred.

For 18 months the "fact checkers" did everything they could to prevent the facts from being known about the origins of COVID-19. And when they were confronted about their curious lack of interest in an obvious possible explanation, their answer was always the same: "We're relying on the World Health Organization and the CDC. We're following the scientists."

Well, we know the World Health Organization is in the hip pocket of President Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party. And elements of the CDC, and people like Dr. Fauci, had their own self-interested reasons to not investigate the lab because they were indirectly funding it and wanted to keep their cozy relationships with the Chinese communist public health authorities.

Meanwhile, the whole time our media and political elites were silencing people who were asking legitimate questions, communist China was telling the world that the virus originated in the United States.

Our media and the American political left were parroting communist propaganda and running interference for Beijing's brutal regime!

Fauci's Follies
Dr. Fauci went on MSNBC yesterday and continued to make really absurd arguments. Perhaps his most outrageous statement was this one:

"I mean, obviously you want openness and cooperation. One of the ways you can get it is don't be accusatory. . . I think the accusatory part about it is only going to get them [communist China] to pull back even more."

Even now, Fauci is still running interference for Beijing. He's telling us that if we want his Chinese communist friends to cooperate, we need to be nice to them.

Dr. Fauci has got to go. He is dangerously naive.

As I noted yesterday, communist China has lied repeatedly about COVID-19. That's not in dispute. They're not going to cooperate. They never were going to cooperate.

The regime is committing genocide. That's not in dispute. It does not believe in free speech or transparency of any kind. It is a communist regime. They lie. They deceive. That's what communists do.

Pence In New Hampshire
Last night, former Vice President Mike Pence delivered a strong speech to a record crowd at the annual Lincoln-Reagan Dinner hosted by New Hampshire's Hillsborough County Republican Party. Pence told the cheering crowd that Biden's radical policies will result in "another great Republican comeback." He said:

"They [the voters] didn't vote to open our borders, to give away the safety of our streets, our prosperity or our freedoms or our future. . . It's time for freedom-loving Americans to stand up and say, 'NO MORE!' It's time for freedom-loving Americans to unite behind an agenda that will bring America back!"

The New Hampshire speech is yet another indication that if Donald Trump chooses not to run again, Mike Pence will enter the fray for the 2024 GOP nomination.

Good News:
  • Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed legislation protecting girls' sports from biological boys who claim to be girls.
  • More people of color (here and here) are speaking out against the Marxist, anti-American ideology of critical race theory.
  • Parents opposed to critical race theory successfully forced a Florida school board to edit its "equity statement,"removing references to "structures rooted in white advantage."
  • A Michigan school district overruled the principal who attempted to censor religious speech from a valedictory address.
  • Wisconsin legislators are investigating Mark Zuckerberg's Center for Tech and Civic Life, which may have violated state election laws during the 2020 election.
  • Coca-Cola continues to get burned over its decision to go woke.
  • Florida State University was forced to pay $100,000 for violating the free speech and religious liberty rights of a Catholic student who was punished for privately expressing his religious and political views.
  • The state of California has been ordered to pay $2 million in legal fees to settle cases involving two more churches that sued Gov. Gavin Newsom for religious discrimination during the pandemic shutdowns.
  • The seven-day rolling average of COVID-19 cases is down 94% from the January peak and at the lowest level since March of 2020.

Did 3.7 Million People Die because of Covid Cover-up of Potential Wuhan Lab Origin of Virus?

by Robert Romano: Click here to urge Congress to adopt the Covid Commission bill to study origins of the virus in China!

Almost 3.7 million people have died worldwide from the Covid pandemic that began in the Wuhan province of China in late 2019, and now, the American people are learning that the U.S. government <has had intelligence for months that indicates the virus might have been released from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in a laboratory accident.

On Jan. 15, right at the end of former President Donald Trump’s term in office, the State Department released a fact sheet that stated, “The United States government has reason to believe that several researchers inside the WIV became sick in autumn 2019, before the first identified case of the outbreak, with symptoms consistent with both COVID-19 and common seasonal illnesses. This raises questions about the credibility of WIV senior researcher Shi Zhengli’s public claim that there was ‘zero infection’ among the WIV’s staff and students of SARS-CoV-2 or SARS-related viruses.”

And it accused the Wuhan lab of possibly conducting “gain of function” research on bat-to-human transmission of coronaviruses: “Starting in at least 2016, WIV researchers studied RaTG13, the bat coronavirus identified by the WIV in January 2020 as its closest sample to SARS-CoV-2 (96.2% similar). Since the outbreak, the WIV has not been transparent nor consistent about its work with RaTG13 or other similar viruses, including possible ‘gain of function’ experiments to enhance transmissibility or lethality.”

This mirrored claims in a May 23 Wall Street Journal report that offered additional details of the potential lab accident: “Three researchers from China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology became sick enough in November 2019 that they sought hospital care, according to a previously undisclosed U.S. intelligence report.”

The Journal disclosures appear to be referencing the same intelligence report that the State Department fact sheet was in January.

The May 23 report from the Journal sent the Biden administration scrambling, with President Joe Biden issuing a statement on May 26 that in March he had “asked the Intelligence Community to redouble their efforts to collect and analyze information” on “whether it emerged from human contact with an infected animal or from a laboratory accident.”’

But the intelligence goes back further. The State Department inquiry reportedly began last fall. According to CNN. And a May 2020 Australian Daily Telegraph news story quoted a “Five Eyes” intelligence report on the potential Wuhan lab origins of Covid. According to the Daily Telegraph, “[The dossier] states that to the ‘endangerment of other countries’ the Chinese government covered-up news of the virus by silencing or ‘disappearing’ doctors who spoke out, destroying evidence of it in laboratories and refusing to provide live samples to international scientists who were working on a vaccine… As intelligence agencies investigate whether the virus inadvertently leaked from a Wuhan laboratory, the team and its research led by scientist Shi Zhengli feature in the dossier prepared by Western governments that points to several studies they conducted as areas of concern.”

Moreover, the intelligence report was aware that western governments “funded a team of Chinese scientists who belong to a laboratory which went on to genetically modify deadly coronaviruses that could be transmitted from bats to humans and had no cure, and is now the subject of a probe into the origins of COVID-19.”

The intel report itself stated, “Despite evidence of human-human transmission from early December, PRC authorities deny it until January 20… The World Health Organisation does the same. Yet officials in Taiwan raised concerns as early as December 31, as did experts in Hong Kong on January 4.”

This intel would have been critical to the public health response by officials in the U.S., China and elsewhere. Unfortunately, China’s lack of cooperation stands at the center of the failure to identify patient zero of Covid, with the intelligence hinting that China might have had access to these patients all along if they indeed came from the Wuhan lab.

But the West’s response was not much better. It was nothing short of a cover-up.

As U.S. Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.) revealed in a Washington Examiner oped on Feb. 26, rather than conducting an investigation of Wuhan lab, world health officials instead depended on Dr. Peter Daszak of EcoHealth — who got a $666,442 grant beginning in 2014 to conduct bat-to-human coronavirus transmission studies in China at the Wuhan lab — to lead the crucial inquiries into whether his own experiments might have been the cause of the pandemic.

The grant was subcontracted to the Wuhan lab, according to a 2017 study by the Director of the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Shi Zheng-li, stating it was “jointly funded by… the National Institutes of Health (NIAID R01AI110964), the USAID Emerging Pandemic Threats (EPT) PREDICT program to PD and ZLS,” among others.

As Posey noted, the Daszak-led investigations remarkably went on to give the Wuhan lab a clean bill of health: “Ironically, the Lancet chose Daszak to lead its investigation into the origins of COVID-19, including its possible origins at Wuhan — a theory Daszak has repeatedly called a ‘conspiracy theory.’ WHO also included Daszak as a key member of its investigation team. Unsurprisingly, the WHO investigation team concluded on Feb. 8, after a brief visit to the Wuhan Institute, that it was unlikely the virus leaked from a lab, and this possibility needed no further investigation.”

Now, Posey is proposing H.R. 834, which would create a bipartisan commission to look at the origins of the virus. Certainly, if nothing else, Congress should be hauling Daszak in for questioning.

In a recently released email from Dr. Daszak to Dr. Anthony Fauci,director of NIAID, on April 18, 2020, “I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

But in a Dec. 2019 interview, Dr. Daszak admitted that the research at the Wuhan lab was in fact looking at novel coronaviruses and that the viruses were being manipulated: “we have now found, you know, after 6 or 7 years of doing this, over 100 new SARS-related corona viruses, very close to SARS… Some of them get into human cells in the lab, some of them can cause SARS disease in humanised mice models and are untreatable with therapeutic monoclonals and you can’t vaccinate against them with a vaccine. So, these are a clear and present danger… I think … corona viruses – you can manipulate them in the lab pretty easily. Spike protein drives a lot of what happen with corona virus, in zoonotic risk. So you can get the sequence, you can build the protein, and we work a lot with Ralph Baric at UNC to do this. Insert into the backbone of another virus and do some work in the lab. So you can get more predictive when you find a sequence. You’ve got this diversity. Now the logical progression for vaccines is, if you are going to develop a vaccine for SARS, people are going to use pandemic SARS, but let’s insert some of these other things and get a better vaccine.”

Read that again. Dr. Daszak, Dr. Shi and the Wuhan lab had “over 100 new SARS-related corona viruses, very close to SARS… in the lab.” The pandemic could have been any one those more than 100 coronaviruses they had in the lab, and Daszak knew it.

Now, a May 14 letter to Science magazine co-authored by Dr. David Relman of Stanford University School of Medicine and 17 other doctors says a lab accident remains a “viable” hypothesis alongside a natural event, and urging further review of the subject: “Theories of accidental release from a lab and zoonotic spillover both remain viable. Knowing how COVID-19 emerged is critical for informing global strategies to mitigate the risk of future outbreaks… In November, the Terms of Reference for a China–WHO joint study were released. The information, data, and samples for the study’s first phase were collected and summarized by the Chinese half of the team; the rest of the team built on this analysis. Although there were no findings in clear support of either a natural spillover or a lab accident, the team assessed a zoonotic spillover from an intermediate host as ‘likely to very likely,’ and a laboratory incident as ‘extremely unlikely’. Furthermore, the two theories were not given balanced consideration. Only 4 of the 313 pages of the report and its annexes addressed the possibility of a laboratory accident. Notably, WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus com-mented that the report’s consideration of evidence supporting a laboratory accident was insufficient and offered to provide additional resources to fully evaluate the possibility. As scientists with relevant expertise, we agree with the WHO director-general, the United States and 13 other countries, and the European Union that greater clarity about the origins of this pandemic is necessary and feasible to achieve. We must take hypotheses about both natural and laboratory spillovers seriously until we have sufficient data.”

One of the co-signers on the letter was Dr. Ralph Baric of the Department of Epidemiology and Department of Microbiology & Immunology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, one of Dr. Shi’s long-time research collaborators, and one of the world’s foremost experts on novel coronaviruses. In a 2015 study, Baric and Shi were able to combine two separate coronaviruses to create a new one.

The doubts today call into question greatly the certitude that Dr. Daszak gave the world in the early days of 2020 that there was simply no way the virus could have originated in a lab.

Dr. Daszak’s cover-up of his potential role in the outbreak was even used to engage in Covid censorship. According to JusttheNews.com’s John Solomon, “Science Feedback, one of Facebook’s chief fact-checking platforms, in a February 2020 ‘fact check’ cited Peter Daszak as an expert source in its ruling that there was ‘no evidence’ to support the theory that the COVID-19 virus leaked from the lab.”

Could public health officials have acted faster late in 2019 if Dr. Daszak had disclosed what he knew when the virus was diagnosed in Dec. 2019? Could disclosure by U.S. health officials like Dr. Fauci who helped fund Daszak and the Wuhan lab’s research into the deadly bat-to-human coronaviruses have aided the Trump administration’s foreign policy and persuaded China to be more forthcoming? Could that have helped saved lives?

We may never know. And neither will the 3.7 million dead and counting from Covid.
