Conservatives were once a lonely band of freethinkers
In the early 1950s, liberal intellectuals shaped the American zeitgeist, while conservatives, to quote Yale professor Willmoore Kendall, manned “tiny outposts” over a broad front, rarely communicating with one another.
When 39 American and European conservative intellectuals, calling themselves “traditional liberals,” formed an organization in the spring of 1947, they did not meet in America but thousands of miles away in Mont Pelerin, Switzerland. Their mood was somber, for statism had permeated the governments of Western Europe while communism ruled in Eastern Europe with a little help from the Soviet Army. Led by the Austrian economist F. A. Hayek, these free-market scholars described their goal, rather grandly, as “the preservation and improvement of the free society.” Economist Milton Friedman contented himself with saying the meeting demonstrated that “we were not alone.” All too alone were conservative academics such as University of Chicago English professor Richard Weaver, Duke political scientist Ralph Hallowell, Louisiana State University political philosopher Eric Voegelin, Harvard historian William Y. Elliott, and UC Berkeley sociologist Robert Nisbet.
There were scattered conservative publications, with small circulations compared with those of established liberal journals such as The New Republic and The Nation. Human Events was a weekly eight-page political newsletter. Firmly anti–New Deal, it described the changes in American government since 1932 as “revolutionary” and called on Republicans to roll back the “iron curtain” that separated Washington from the rest of the country. But its call to action had attracted a circulation of only 5,000.
The one conservative youth group was the newly born ISI, with its paradoxical name, the Intercollegiate Society of Individualists (now the Intercollegiate Studies Institute). Encouraged by a $1,000 check from oil executive J. Howard Pew, ISI’s organizers argued that the push toward socialism in America had begun in the early 1900s with the formation of Socialist Clubs on college campuses. ISI’s plan was to “foment the organization of campus cells for the study and discussion of individualistic ideas.” The libertarian language reflected the ideology of its founding father, Frank Chodorov, who never met a government program he didn’t want to dismantle. With William F. Buckley Jr. as president, ISI reached 600 members in its first year and then quadrupled over the next several, revealing a campus appetite for at least some conservative ideas.
There were conservative newspaper columnists, such as George Sokolsky, and radio broadcasters, such as Fulton Lewis Jr., but liberals undercut their influence by linking them whenever they could with a “militant right wing.” CBS’s Mike Wallace, for example, invited his viewers one evening to listen to Lewis explain “the attraction the far right has for crackpot fascist groups in America.” Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.
When The Conservative Mind was published in 1953, liberals joked that the title was an oxymoron. But they stopped laughing when they read Kirk’s synthesis of the thought of leading conservatives from the late 18th century to the 20th century, including Edmund Burke, John Adams, Daniel Webster, Benjamin Disraeli, George Santayana, and T. S. Eliot. The work established convincingly that there had been a conservative tradition in America since the Founding. Kirk made conservatism intellectually respectable. In fact, as NR publisher William Rusher pointed out, he gave the conservative movement its name.
As George Nash has written in his indispensable study The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America Since 1945, there were three reactions to the Left in the aftermath of World War II. The first, as represented by Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom, consisted of classical liberals and libertarians, resisting the threat to individual liberty posed by the collectivist state. The second was the revolt of traditionalists, such as Weaver and Kirk, who urged a return to time-honored religious and ethical beliefs and a rejection of moral relativism. The third was, in Nash’s words, “a militant evangelistic anti-Communism,” shaped by ex-communists such as Frank Meyer and Whittaker Chambers, author of the powerful autobiographical work Witness.
Bill Buckley’s special genius as a master fusionist was his ability to keep these dissimilar, disputatious intellectuals on the same masthead for years to come. Why were there so few defectors? Because of Buckley’s extraordinary skill at harmonizing the conflicting voices of the conservative choir. Because he persuaded his fractious colleagues to concentrate on their common enemy — the Soviet Union — and set aside for the time being their undoubted differences. And because he helped them realize they were part of something historic — what Buckley would call “our movement.”
Lee Edwards is the distinguished fellow in conservative thought at The Heritage Foundation’s B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics. A leading historian of American conservatism, Edwards has published 25 books, including “Just Right: A Life in Pursuit of Liberty.”
America’s globalist foreign policy-makers have for decades treasonously assisted the rise of godless and murderous communist regimes. Red China’s murderous slave-state has especially received the “most-favored nation” status while friendly nations such as Taiwan received the heel of our boot. This has been the ongoing legacy of America’ foreign policy – until Donald Trump. Trump is the first president with enough backbone to reverse course on these godless suicidal tendencies by our lawmakers. For it, he has received the ire of soft-shell Republicans and the acidic hatred of the Democratic machine as well as the press.
The guilt of aiding and abetting Red China’s gulag lies at the feet of both Democratic as well as Republican administrations. From the period of FDR through the no-win wars of Harry Truman, LBJ and Richard Nixon, into the political machinery of the Clinton and Obama eras, America has encouraged the rise of communism around the globe. It is no less with presidential hopeful Joe Biden.
The core of communism is systematic militant atheism and godless materialism. The latter is a fruit of the former. Vladimir Lenin did not express his own personal view of Christianity when he commented that it was the “opium of the people,” but was giving expression to the nature of the communistic beast itself.
And, Karl Marx, the father of the communistic system, which is responsible for the murders of more human beings than any dictatorship in history, stated, “The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point, however, is to change it.” Indeed, changing the world has been Marx’s followers mission. Red China alone has amassed a body count of between 34 million to 64 million by 1971.
In 2014 the Global Times published an opinion piece by Zhou Weiqun, director of the Subcommittee of Ethnic and Religious Affairs at the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. In it he emphasized that communism continues to demand that “CCP (Chinese Communist Party) members must not have any religious beliefs and have firmly to uphold Marxism and “materialism.’ One might think that the bloody history of communism and its hatred of God might turn Americans away from that philosophy. Not so. Aiding and abetting murderous regimes is particularly pronounced in the Democratic Party.
Democratic cooperation with Chinese Communism has a long history. When mainland China fell to Mao Tse-tung’s Communist forces in 1949 and Chiang Kai-Shek’s Nationalist Army was forced to escape to Formosa (Taiwan), the culprit was the notorious Franklin D. Roosevelt who promised Joseph Stalin at the Yalta Conference in 1945 the northern Chinese province of Manchuria in exchange for Soviet entrance into the war against Japan.
The Soviet army was supplied with FDR’s lend-lease equipment and was sitting along the Manchurian border. After the atomic bomb had been dropped on Hiroshima, the Red Army of the Soviets invaded Manchuria and captured Japanese arms which they immediately made available to the Chinese Communists. The balance of power shifted in China to Mao-Tse-tung’s army.
It was not merely Joseph McCarthy who stated that U.S. policy-makers lost China, John F. Kennedy did as well. He told the House in January 1949, “The responsibility for the failure of our foreign policy in the Far East rests squarely with the White House and the Department of State.”
After that planned catastrophe, the United States entered two no-win wars; Korea and Vietnam. Curtailed by the globalist President Harry Truman, Douglas MacArthur was forbidden victory. He was denied the right to pursue enemy planes that attacked our own; the right to bomb hydro-electric plants along the Yalu River as well as every plant in North Korea; the right to bomb the extremely important supply center at Racin in northeast Korea. Racin was a staging center utilized by the Soviet Union as they forwarded supplies for the North Korean Army.
America’s foreign policy looks as if it is built on assisting communism around the globe. Indeed, this is what occurred.
Jimmy Carter terminated diplomatic relations with our friends in Taiwan in December of 1978 and established diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China on the first day of 1979. Carter betrayed America’s friend, the Shah of Iran, and helped give Iran to the mullahs. And America continues to pay the price for that sabotage.
And how about the treasonous actions of President Bill Clinton pertaining to the People’s Republic of China (PRC)? Clinton’s Chinagate scandal involved:
• Receiving enormous illegal campaign contributions into his coffers from Red Chinese operatives in exchange for favorable “foreign policy” decisions
• The appointment of Johnny Huang, a suspected Red Chinese agent to high positions in the United States government whereby secrets might easily be stolen
• Enormous efforts to allow the Long Beach Naval Station to be utilized by the China Ocean Shipping Company (COSCO)
• The reception from Yah Lin “Charlier” Trie, a member of the Red Chinese-linked Triad crime syndicate, of $460,000 into the Clinton-Gore campaign
• Refusal to impose sanctions on Beijing for its export of military technologies to terroristic states—despite the fact the he was required to do so by law—one that had been specifically written by none other than Al Gore
• The obstruction by Attorney General Janet Reno of any Congressional investigation of the above matters even when pressed by the FBI itself to do so
Obama was no different.
• The United States saw Chinese troops on U.S. soil for the first time during the Obama years
• Obama pledged a “joint-effort” to “fight global warming” with China despite its ongoing stealing of sensitive government material
• Secretary of State John Kerry promised “more cooperation” with China in spite of the fact that known Chinese espionage had accelerated to a larger degree than ever before. It had reached “unprecedented proportions”
• The Chinese regime’s massive intelligence-gathering apparatus aimed at the United States did not concern Obama. American money continued to flow to China and global “climate change” deals were ratcheted up to siphon off more money to China
Where is Joe Biden in this equation? Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden is cut out of the same treasonous mold. Having served with President Barack Obama, who never met a communist he did not like, Biden has an impressive resume for favoring the Chinese communists.
• He supported China’s entry into the WTO in 2001 which led to permanent normal trade relations with the United States
• Biden considers China a “developing nation” and has made certain that China has access to Wall Street. For example, “In 2013, the Obama administration allowed Chinese companies to invest in U.S. capital markets without having their books inspected by U.S. regulators” (Epoch Times, quoting Brian Kennedy, chairman of the “committee on the Present Danger: China.” 9/9-15/20).
• Biden continues to desire Chinese “investment” in the United States. So he said at a roundtable meeting in Beijing in 2011.
• This week, emails found on son Hunter Biden’s computer reveal that Hunter Biden would be able to profit to the tune of tens of millions of dollars from the Red Chinese while, according to the text that he wrote his father, Joe Biden would be able to take half of the money.
• Michael Johns, former speech White House speech writer for George H.W. Bush and a Heritage Foundation foreign policy analyst, told The Epoch Times that Joe Biden, throughout his 47-year career in Washington, been supporting … “one of the biggest foreign policy lies ever told: that china’s economic ascent would lead to more moderation and liberalization in its approach with the U.S. and the free world, and in its human rights conditions at home.”
Many Democrats do not wish to be associated with “communism.” However, their own party not only favors socialism in all areas, but openly assists godless communism on its rise over the world. These liberals are marching beneath the Democratic flag that has a red star of communism emblazoned upon it.
Pro sports in America are dying in front of our very eyes. This will be a story taught in business schools across America for decades to come. The story is about how to kill a multibillion-dollar empire overnight with just your big mouth.
It’s about killing the goose that laid the golden egg.
It’s about the massive disconnect between sports stars and their customers — the people who pay their grossly inflated and obscene salaries.
You are killing yourselves. It’s clearly suicide. Stop talking politics. You’re going to be playing in front of empty stands forever.
I warned you weeks ago your ratings would plummet — just as they did when Colin Kaepernick kneeled. I was right. NBA playoff ratings are down dramatically, falling 35 percent from 16 percent last year. But they’re down much worse from five years ago. Soon your ratings will plummet even further.
The more you scream about the Black Lives Matter movement and “social justice,” the more fans will tune out. Soon, your apparel and memorabilia will stop selling. You’ve made a tragic mistake and miscalculation.
Before I get to the reason pro athletes should keep politics away from their sports, let me ask LeBron James and his NBA pals a few very important questions.
LeBron, how come you never said a word, let alone threatened to end the season, over black-on-black violence in big cities across the USA? Thousands of black young men are dying on the streets of inner cities. Why don’t you care?
LeBron, how about Chicago? Why doesn’t it bother you that 50 to 100 innocent citizens are being shot there nearly every weekend? The victims are virtually 100 percent black. Why isn’t that worth a boycott?
LeBron, how about the innocent little black children murdered in gang shootings in big cities across America? It happens every day. Why doesn’t that bother you?
LeBron, how about the millions of black babies aborted? Why not cancel the NBA season for that? Why doesn’t that bother you?
LeBron, has any sports league EVER stopped playing or postponed playoff games for a hero cop murdered, or a hero soldier murdered? That’s not important to you?
LeBron, did you or your NBA pals stop playing to honor the black retired police captain in St. Louis killed by a thug during riots?
LeBron, did the NBA or any other sports league postpone games or threaten to end the season when a sniper murdered five Dallas cops in one day? Why didn’t that bother any pro athletes?
LeBron, did you or any pro athletes demand games be stopped for the little boy shot in the head and murdered two weeks ago? He happened to be white. The man accused of murdering him happens to be black. That has to be one of the most shocking crimes in recent American history. Who kills a smiling, happy 5-year-old on his bicycle, execution-style? But I never heard a peep from one NBA player. Why? You didn’t notice?
Is the execution of a 5-year-old less important to you than a white cop killing or wounding a black criminal who has a long criminal record and refuses to obey orders from a police officer? Really?
LeBron, isn’t it strange that neither you nor your NBA pals ever gave a damn about human rights violations in China? There are billions of dollars to be made looking the other way, while communist China abuses, arrests, tortures, and murders its own citizens. China is said to have concentration camps for Muslims. But you know that, right? Obviously, none of that is a problem for NBA players if billions of dollars are at stake.
Do you see where I’m going, LeBron? You and your pals in the NBA, MLB, NFL, and NHL seem a tad hypocritical. You don’t notice when cops are shot or killed. You don’t notice the black genocide going on in America’s cities. You don’t notice the young black children killed in gang shootings. Or the millions of aborted black babies.
You don’t seem to notice the black crime perpetrated upon white citizens. I think that’s important, too, don’t you? I think it’s fair game. I think we need a national discussion and debate. I think it’s a two-way street.
By the way, LeBron, if you feel so strongly about ending the season for a bad guy who wanted to kill cops with a knife, what’s stopping you? You should go home. Let other players, who want to play, play.
And I have the perfect idea for the NFL players thinking of forfeiting a game this season in “honor” of Jacob Blake, the career criminal accused of sexual assault, who fought officers and threatened to kill them with a knife. If that person is worth taking a stand over, then I think they should quit football. Become a full-time social justice warrior. It doesn’t pay $5 million to $10 million per year. You’ll make about $25,000 a year. How’s that sound? Are you willing to give up football to fight for social justice full time? I didn’t think so.
So, forgive me if all of your customers aren’t on your team on this one.
LeBron, my advice is simple: SHUT UP! You’re alienating your customers. You’re offending your customers — you know, the ones who pay the grossly inflated and obscene prices for game tickets, parking, food, and sports apparel.
Sports and politics don’t mix. We tune in to the games to get away from politics. Keep violating that rule and there will be no fans left to pay your grossly inflated and obscene salaries.
LeBron, pull back from the ledge. Because this is suicide.
These are all qualities that a Totalitarian State demand and will definitely punish non-compliance. Just search Communist China and read the interesting evolution of Mao’s China with the ordinances controlling approved clothing so that all would wear exactly the same thing. In the early 90’s I met a person who has been a very good friend for decades. He began business in the newly CIS by bartering and trading with westerners who were coming into the CIS. He said that his greatest success was trading USSR memorabilia for blue jeans! He said that no one in the former USSR could get blue jeans as they were a dictate from the State that depicted the degeneracy of the west.
The historical surrender of personal rights and individual freedoms is a fascinating study of human behavior. It is amazingly simple to get an entire population group to surrender individualism because they want to become an accepted part of the “blob.” Those who do not conform are treated horribly, cussed constantly and pressured to break their resistance. Total compliance results in a robotic population who is easily controlled for the State’s Elite. There is ALWAYS a small group in control. There is NEVER total equality and egalitarianism regardless of the persuasive propaganda!
The United States of America is about to cross the threshold where personal rights, individualism and true liberty will be left behind. We, as a nation, are on the cusp of Aldous Huxley’s BRAVE NEW WORLD. This book was written in 1931. I read it in high school in 1970. It once seemed a cleaver Science Fiction theme. However, now its cleverness is in its troubling prescience.
With these points in mind, look carefully at our current society. When mandatory face masks were first suggested many sounded alarms and the issue died down. But then even though the hospitalizations and deaths of COVID-19 dramatically decreased, we were told the infections were really the major threat. Once again mandatory face masks were introduced and slowly, little-by-little cities and states began to issue mandatory face masks ordinances. President Trump has stubbornly refused to issue a national ordinance and I hope he remains stubbornly opposed but he is dealing with unbelievable pressures to do otherwise.
In regard to the face mask issue many naively say, “What’s the BIG problem? It’s only a face mask? Just go along with the State because it is looking out for YOUR best interests.”
We are now told when to wear face masks and how to wear face masks. Individualism is threatened and incredible pressure is focused toward those who do not wear a face mask even in the “optional” locations. Individualism is thus crushed! Now there is a fervid discussion about the color that is best, the model that is best. Some are even suggesting that the Federal State dictate the color, model, and all elements associated with the face mask. If this is allowed to happen, then citizens will be punished for wearing any face mask that is different. Individualism will thus be erased!
The problem IS the State! True history is inerrant. True history documents the subtle and slow surrender of individualism and personal rights and absorption into a totalitarian system where the individual has absolutely no choice—all morality is determined; all clothing is determined; all religion is determined; all dietary menus are determined. It begins slow and subtle but the end is surrender of all control!
God warns us, “The prudent sees the evil and hides himself, but the naive go on, and are punished for it (Proverbs 22:3).
So here is where we are on July 30, 2020…Americans have been incessantly propagandized for months being told that face masks are essential to “flattening the curve.” We were told that wearing these for two-weeks will show a dramatic decline in infections.” In some locations face masks have been work well past the “two-week” period. Just how verifiable is this face mask theory? The infections are rising greater than before the face mask ordinance! So the narrative has to change… “we won’t know the impact for several more weeks but face masks are still required ”!
But today another element is injected into the “preventive” narrative…“If you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it,” Fauci, 79, the top US infectious disease expert, told ABC News Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton on Wednesday. When asked if eye protection will become a formal recommendation at some point, he said, “It might, if you really want perfect protection of the mucosal surfaces.” (New York Post, “Fauci urges Americans to wear goggles for added COVID-19 protection”)
Rod Serling and his writers of The Twilight Zone anticipated the horrors of mandated conformity and the surrender of personal rights and individualism. Go online and watch these two poignant episodes and keep in mind the “face-masks and eye-goggles”! “Eye Of The Beholder” and “Number 12 Looks Just Like You”
So America, as you put on your face mask to go to the store put on your shopping list to buy some eye goggles. I am not sure what model, color or any other aspect of the goggles you should wear. But, as our nation marches into totalitarian control by the State we will all be goose-stepping with face masks and eye goggles!
The most amazing footnote that history will record…the World Power was conquered by face masks and eye goggles!
“Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!” He who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them” (Psalm 2:1-4).

It is undeniable that Bill Gates gives lots of his own money to causes around the world, causing many to dub him a philanthropist. But his causes and motives are questionable.
He has already subjected America’s children to educational quackery as the main sponsor of Common Core, and he has gathered more data on you and every American than you could imagine. Now, as this article will show, one of the world’s leading population-control zealots wants to inject you, your whole family, and every single person on the entire planet with an as-yet undeveloped and untested vaccine — supposedly to protect against coronavirus. Then he wants to track you using technology that sounds like it comes out of a science fiction movie. And unless and until everybody on Earth submits to his vaccination demands, the technocratic globalist has declared repeatedly, society cannot and will not return to normal. That man, of course, is Microsoft founder Bill Gates — perhaps one of the most controversial people in the world right now, despite media adulation.
With all Gates’ connections, media appearances, and demands, one might be forgiven for thinking that he was emperor of the world. And if humanity is not careful, the agenda Gates represents may well succeed — potentially in the near term. That means liberty, health freedom, the family, self-government, much of the population, and the economy are in mortal danger.
Simply put, Bill Gates is potentially dangerous because he has great wealth and great influence, both of which he uses to try to make the world follow his dictates. Gates is so powerful that he was able — almost single-handedly — to impose the national education standards known as Common Core on almost the entire nation. (Elite private schools such as those his children attended proudly rejected it.) Gates put more than $2 billion of his own money into the scheme, backed by the Obama administration. Pointedly, he pushed the installation of Common Core though there were indications that it would lead to reduced educational quality. In fact, Common Core’s Validation Committee refused to sign off on the plans because they were so bad. And Gates himself claimed to be unsure about its success. “It would be great if our education stuff worked, but that we won’t know for probably a decade,” the tycoon admitted in 2014. Since then, multiple studies of U.S. students have confirmed that the standards led to scores cratering across the board, making American children less educated than ever before.
Despite Common Core’s failures, with help from the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Gates’ educational vision is going global. In 2004, Gates was in Paris to sign an agreement with UNESCO on behalf of Microsoft to work on global standards, guidelines, curriculum, and technology. The UN agency had already been working on centralizing control over education for decades. And the UN’s educational goals don’t seem to be about making children into critical thinkers; among other schemes, it peddled the World Core Curriculum. Written by Assistant UN Secretary-General Robert Muller, the scheme was based on the teachings of Lucifer Publishing Company founder Alice Bailey, an advocate of world government and a one-world religion merging many of the world’s religions together under one banner.
On the global health front, Gates’ activities are as ill-advised and harmful as his education schemes — perhaps more harmful. Now that Trump has put on hold U.S. contributions to the World Health Organization, Gates is the world’s largest single donor to WHO — an outfit literally run by a Communist Chinese-backed Politburo member of an ethno-Marxist terror organization from Ethiopia. He is the world’s largest single financier of vaccines, too, vaccines that are notorious for their harmful side effects.
Most of the major media fawn over Bill Gates, portraying him as some sort of nerdy, self-made business genius turned selfless and benevolent “philanthropist” simply working to “save” and “help” humanity. The reality, though, as this article will show, is much different. Gates, afflicted with the same messianic complex so common among the global elites, is pushing an agenda of globalism, technocracy (rule by scientific elites instead of self-government), forced vaccines, dangerous indoctrination, and totalitarianism. And one does not need to dig deep to find the abundant evidence.
What Does Bill Gates Believe?
Perhaps the issue that has defined Gates’ giving and efforts more than any other is population control — in particular, the Malthusian idea that there are too many people on the planet for “Mother Earth” to sustain. In his public statements and in his “charity,” Gates and his wife, Melinda, have focused on “overpopulation.”
It appears this passion was instilled in him by his father, Planned Parenthood bigwig Bill Gates, Sr., a prominent former attorney. Gates, Sr. still advises Junior, despite being in his mid-90s.
“When I was growing up, my parents were always involved in various volunteer things,” Gates, Jr. said in a 2003 interview with Bill Moyers on PBS. “My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating; at the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing, and almost treating us like adults, talking about that.” In short, Gates, Sr. was a eugenicist.
Like father, like son — the younger Gates has picked up where his father left off, showering hundreds of millions on abortion behemoth Planned Parenthood and other abortionist groups. At a 2017 “Global Family Planning Summit” in London, Gates’ wife announced that the Gates Foundation would be spending almost $400 million on population-control schemes through 2020 — much of which has and will, at least indirectly, finance the killing of pre-born babies. She also called for sex education to begin “very, very early.” Gates has also been a major donor to the UN Population Fund, the pro-abortion UN agency that specializes in reducing the human population and has been exposed in Congress working with the Communist Chinese government on forced abortions and forced sterilizations.
Gates also thinks contraception should be ubiquitous, if not mandatory. In 1997, Gates and his wife started pouring money into various forms of birth control. And Gates-funded contraception hasn’t only meant fewer babies, it has also led to other dangers and deaths. For instance, Gates funded and peddled the contraceptive Depo Provera — especially to Third World women. Aside from preventing pregnancy, sometimes by inducing abortion, it was blamed by experts for causing or at least contributing to cervical cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, heart attack, sterility, and miscarriages. It also encouraged the spread of HIV/AIDS, chlamydia, and other debilitating and deadly venereal diseases. The Gates Foundation spent $2.6 billion buying and giving this drug to 100 million African women.
On politics, while Gates normally remains quiet, he has spoken out against President Donald Trump and has come down firmly on the side of Democrats and the establishment for years. During the 2016 election, he funded three Democrat campaigns for Congress. In 2012, the tech billionaire hosted a fundraising dinner for Barack Obama’s campaign, charging attendees almost $13,000 per plate.
He has also been outspoken about his desire to see a more powerful federal government and president. “Right now it feels like I wish there was slightly more power in the presidency to avoid some of these deadlocks,” Gates was quoted as saying, adding that he wished America had a system more like the United Kingdom. “So I think what [Obama] wants to do and what he’s actually able to do, the gap is so big there that it’s hard to know in some ways.” More on Gates’ wishes for more command and control later.
Patrick Wood, author of two key books exposing the global elites’ push for technocracy, blasted the Microsoft founder and highlighted his crucial role in the push for global governance by experts and technocrats. “Bill Gates exhibits the mind of a Technocrat in three key areas: education, vaccines and population control and data,” said Wood, who worked with the late Antony Sutton to expose the Trilateral Commission. “Every single initiative that he is involved in today is central to the implementation of Technocracy on a global scale, including the drive for a permanent ID for every human on planet earth.”
Vaccines for Population Control?
Despite being highly counter-intuitive at first glance, even Gates’ obsession with vaccines fits into his population-control agenda. Indeed, Gates, the world’s largest financier of vaccines, is notorious for peddling the idea that vaccines will be a crucial tool in reducing the population.
During a 2010 “TED Talk,” for example, Gates made clear his belief that a lower population was necessary to save the planet. After he told the audience that human emissions of carbon dioxide would have to go down to zero to avoid killing the planet, he totaled up emissions from each person and said, “Probably one of these numbers is going to have to get pretty near to zero.” He added, “The world today has about six billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, healthcare, and reproductive health services [contraception and abortion], we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”
Did you catch that? Vaccines, “healthcare,” abortion, and contraception are all part of a comprehensive strategy to reduce the number of people on Earth.
The next year, he was singing the same tune. In a 2011 interview, he told CNN’s Sanjay Gupta that he was hoping for “unbelievable progress in both inventing new vaccines and making sure they get out to all the children who need them.” “We only need about six or seven more — and then you would have all the tools to reduce childhood death, reduce population growth, and everything — the stability, the environment — benefits from that,” he continued. (Emphasis added.) Again, notice that Gates ties vaccines to reducing the population, and says that fewer people will be good for “stability” and the “environment.”
Now, apologists for Bill Gates argue that what he really means is that by vaccinating everyone, more parents will choose to have fewer children. Gates himself has suggested that this is what he meant with his cryptic comments about using vaccines to reduce the population. “A surprising but critical fact we learned was that reducing the number of deaths actually reduces population growth,” he claimed. But the track record of Gates’ vaccination programs suggests that in reality, the vaccines themselves will be used to thin the population — and not by encouraging parents to have fewer children.
Gates’ Vaccine Programs
Consider a 2014 “tetanus” vaccination campaign in Kenya targeting women and girls by the UN’s WHO and UNICEF that was financed in large part by Gates — this in a nation that had recently been targeted by the UN Population Fund in a report for drastic population-control efforts. Concerned about the vaccines, the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association obtained multiple samples of the vials and sent them to independent labs for testing. They found that the vaccines were laced with beta human chorionic gonadotropin immunogen, which causes the body to stop a pregnancy from coming to term. Women become infertile because their own immune systems attack the critical hormone hCG. WHO discovered in 1976 this “birth-control” vaccine and injected the substance into women in other nations, including Mexico, Nicaragua, the Philippines, and beyond.
“This proved right our worst fears; that this WHO campaign is not about eradicating neonatal tetanus but [is] a well-coordinated forceful population control mass sterilization exercise using a proven fertility regulating vaccine,” explained Dr. Wahome Ngare, spokesman for the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association. “The unfortunate truth is that the vaccine was laced with hCG [immunogen] just like the one used in the South American cases. Further, none of the girls and women given the vaccination were informed of its contraceptive effect.” Shortly after this, the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops released a statement signed by every Catholic bishop in Kenya warning people to avoid the vaccines, saying, “We are convinced that it is indeed a disguised population control program.” This incident was one of several highlighted recently on the floor of the Italian Parliament, with MP Sara Cunial criticizing Gates for sterilizing large numbers of African women and calling for him to be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.
Meanwhile, WHO was exposed by The New American in January of 2019 training medical professionals to lie about the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Declaring that “vaccine hesitancy” was one of the greatest threats to “global health,” the Gates-funded UN agency created a training guide for health workers. It gives strategies for convincing parents to comply with vaccination programs that include using manipulation and even providing misleading or downright false answers to possible questions parents might ask. “Can vaccines cause harmful side effects, illness and even death?” a hypothetical hesitant parent in the program asks the doctor. “No, vaccines are very safe,” the health worker is instructed to say, even though that is demonstrably false. Every vaccine maker in the world acknowledges that vaccines can cause harmful side effects, illness, and even death — that is why they successfully lobbied the U.S. Congress for a total exemption from all liability, forcing U.S. taxpayers to pay billions of dollars in damages to victims of vaccines.
Even WHO admitted last year that most of the polio paralysis around the world was actually caused by the Gates-funded polio vaccination campaigns in Africa and Asia. According to an Associated Press report published on November 25, 2019, “Global health numbers show there are now more children being paralyzed by viruses originating in vaccines than in the wild.” The WHO-created “Independent Monitoring Board” also warned in a report that month that the vaccine-derived polio virus was “spreading uncontrolled in West Africa.” And it described the attitude of WHO and its “partners” to this news as “relaxed.”
In India, Gates is also blamed for unleashing hell on the population under the guise of “vaccination” programs. Writing in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics, Indian doctors Neetu Vashisht and Jacob Puliye blamed the WHO/Gates polio vaccination programs for causing almost 50,000 additional cases of paralysis in children in just one year. Almost half a million cases of paralysis attributed to the vaccines occurred between 2000 and 2017, according to doctors cited by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and other prominent vaccine skeptics. Indian authorities eventually got involved and worked to stamp out Gates’ influence, but the damage was done. Gates-backed trials of HPV vaccines, given to tribal children in rural India without parental consent, also killed and injured many victims, according to media reports of lawsuits that went all the way to that nation’s Supreme Court. The scandal eventually concluded with the government being forced to make drastic changes to its vaccine permissions, including restrictions on foreign groups; however, Indian law had no provisions to penalize ethical and legal violations in trials. In addition, an all-party parliamentary investigation accused Gates’ operatives of unethical practices in a bid to make profits for Big Pharma, an allegation the Gates-funded group behind the schemes denied.
Now, Gates wants to vaccinate the world against coronavirus. “The thing that will get us back to the world that we had before coronavirus is the vaccine and getting that out to seven billion people,” Gates said in one of many similar public statements, echoing propaganda being pumped out by the enormous network of think tanks, propagandists, pharmaceutical companies, and organizations that he funds. “Once you have a safe and effective vaccine and get that out to almost all of the people on the planet … we will go back to normal, and economies will recover.”
On April 30, Gates claimed on his blog that the idea of using drugs to treat COVID-19 was unrealistic and said that the only way to “go back to the way things were” will be to make sure that “almost every person on the planet has been vaccinated against coronavirus.” “Humankind has never had a more urgent task than creating broad immunity for coronavirus,” he claimed, adding that it should be given to newborns. “Realistically, if we’re going to return to normal, we need to develop a safe, effective vaccine. We need to make billions of doses, we need to get them out to every part of the world, and we need all of this to happen as quickly as possible.” The WHO will need to give its “approval,” he added, painting the UN outfit as a sort of global health ministry.
Global Tracking and Tyranny
But Gates really isn’t offering his vaccines as much as he is demanding people get them: Gates has been calling for everyone to receive a “digital certificate” proving that he or she has been vaccinated. In March, Gates said on his blog that the “question of which businesses should keep going is tricky,” but eventually “we will have some digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it.” Fauci at National Institutes of Health has echoed Gates’ rhetoric on having “coronavirus immunity cards” for everyone, and he was quoted in Politico saying this was “being discussed.”
This idea is hardly new. For years, Gates and other globalist billionaires, including multiple Rockefeller foundations, have been peddling the “ID2020” scheme. According to the effort’s website, the plot seeks to mandate that everyone on Earth have a “digital identity” that would follow them from birth to death. It would keep track of all sorts of data, including health and vaccine information, enabling governments and globalists to keep people everywhere under control. This has been a major focus of Gates’ work: Everyone must be identified, vaccinated, and tracked. A Gates-backed biometric ID for 1.2 billion Indians was the test run.
Starting in 2016, Gates funded research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to develop “a novel way to record a patient’s vaccination history: storing the data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine.” In a press release about the scheme released late last year, MIT said the technology “consists of nanocrystals called quantum dots.” This tattoo-type scheme would “remain under the skin where it emits near-infrared light that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone.”
More recently, Microsoft published a patent for a “cryptocurrency system using body activity data,” which is now registered with the UN World Intellectual Property Organization. With the war on cash accelerating, this technology to obtain currency with a piece of technology embedded in the body could be used to implement a digital currency regime that would end privacy and put every individual at the mercy of the powers that be. The patent number on it is WO-2020-060606-A1. The numbers 2020 and 060606 (666) have been widely picked up online, fueling endless speculation and theories about their possible significance.
Much the same has happened regarding Gates’ funding of NIH research into the use of luciferase and luciferin, bio-luminescent compounds, in medical applications. In fairness to Gates, those two terms, which were invented before he was born, are used in biotechnology for their scientific meanings, not in reference to the prince of darkness.
“Contact tracing” schemes to track everyone under the guise of stopping the coronavirus, which are being rolled out worldwide, are also being funded by Gates, along with George Soros. Everything from hiring an “army” of contact tracers to using smartphones as tracking devices is now under way. According to top local, state, and even WHO officials, the tracing schemes will also be used for splitting up families if a member of the family is suspected of having been exposed to COVID-19.
Former U.S. Congressman Ron Paul, a medical doctor, has been highly critical of these coronavirus efforts, making a good case that these are totalitarian actions. “If government can force individuals to receive medical treatment against their will, then there is no reason why government cannot force individuals to buy medical insurance, prohibit them from owning firearms, dictate their terms of employment, and prevent them from taking arguably harmful actions like smoking marijuana or drinking raw milk,” he said. “Similarly, if government can override parents’ wishes regarding medical treatment for their children, then there is no reason why government cannot usurp parental authority in other areas, such as education.”
He added that Americans should “reject this ‘deal.’ Instead, they should demand an immediate end to the lockdowns and the restoration of individual responsibility for deciding how best to protect their health.”
Preparing Well — or a Little Too Well?
Propagandists in the establishment media have been fawning over Gates and his supposed foresight, noting that the billionaire technocrat has been warning about a looming pandemic for many years. And it’s true — he has been. In fact, the preparations and statements he has made over the years were so eerily similar to the way things played out under COVID-19 that they have more than a few critics crying foul. Clearly, Gates and his allies at the globalist World Economic Forum (WEF) were getting ready to use a pandemic to remake the world to suit their technocratic vision.
In October 2019, Gates and the WEF put on Event 201 at the “Bloomberg School of Public Health” at Johns Hopkins University. The program simulated an “outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic.” The pathogen and disease “are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.” Key figures from Big Government (including China’s), Big Business, and Big Pharma all participated. In the scenario the nightmare only ends when a vaccine comes along. And naturally, tyranny is the preferred response — everything from censoring social media to autocratic control over the public were celebrated as necessary.
Such planning isn’t anything new, though. A decade earlier, the Rockefeller Foundation issued a report headlined “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development.” The report featured four scenarios that could help pave the road toward the world order envisioned by globalists. One was a future pandemic scenario, dubbed “LOCK STEP,” in which the United States suffers huge losses from an outbreak due to a lack of tyranny, while Communist China fares much better due to its ruthless totalitarian system with no constraints on government power.
The Rockefeller Foundation’s LOCK STEP scenario goes on to outline the expected results of this pandemic. Citizens everywhere will demand “top-down direction and oversight” over whole nations and economies. The scenario also touts, among other policies to supposedly deal with the outbreak, “biometric ID for all citizens,” “tighter regulation of key industries,” “a suite of new regulations and agreements,” and other power grabs allegedly needed to “restore order and, importantly, economic growth.” In fact, reading the decade-old report feels very much like reading the news today, with the very same “solutions” being advanced that all tend to erode liberty.
Speaking with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Gates praised China’s response to the coronavirus, while attacking the United States. “China did a lot of things right at the beginning,” Gates claimed, one of countless pro-China statements made by the billionaire over the years. “Some countries did respond very quickly and get their testing in place and they avoided the incredible economic pain, and it’s sad that even the U.S., that you would have expected to do this well, did it particularly poorly.” Meanwhile, Gates blasted criticisms of Beijing’s response, including the fact that its regime covered up the outbreak, as a “distraction.”
Interestingly, Gates was also a chief financier of the two outfits that provided the projections of mass death that panicked governments around the world into pursuing the policies that Gates was peddling. The first was the Institute for Health Metrics Evaluation at the University of Washington in Seattle, which was launched with a $100 million grant from Gates. The other was the Imperial College of London, which normally specializes in producing climate-change hysteria and sustainable-development propaganda. Both organizations warned of millions of coronavirus deaths, with the Imperial College even projecting a potential 2.2 million deaths just in the United States under one scenario. Both organizations eventually acknowledged that their numbers were wildly out of touch with reality, though policymakers apparently never got the memo. And both organizations were heavily funded by Gates, as were companies all over the world that received investments by Gates to find vaccines for the coronavirus.
Troubling Associations and Connections
Gates’ affinity for totalitarianism is also evidenced by his close ties to globalists and totalitarian leaders.
Indeed, in 2017, he joined the “elite” Chinese Academy of Engineering, an organ of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China headed by Communist Chinese “Premier” Li Kequiang.
Recently, Gates wrote a letter to Chinese dictator Xi Jinping — whose government has a well-documented history of imprisoning and murdering political dissidents, even going so far as to harvest their organs and put them up for sale — about the coronavirus. In the letter, which was reported by Communist Chinese propaganda organs, Gates boasted that his foundation “has committed up to 100 million U.S. dollars in emergency funding, much of which will help China bolster epidemiological research, emergency intervention, and the research and development of drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics,” reported the state-controlled China Global Television Network.
Xi responded to Gates with a fawning letter of his own. “I support your cooperation with relevant Chinese institutions, and look forward to enhanced coordination and concerted efforts in the international community for the sake of [the] health and well-being of all,” he said.
Gates’ choice of associates demonstrates that, to him, the ends justify the means — no matter what — and that any association that can forward the cause is therefore a suitable one. Case in point: Gates’ very close links to Jeffrey Epstein, the infamous child-trafficking pedophile who supposedly killed himself in prison. According to the New York Times, Gates repeatedly visited Epstein’s home and even flew on one of his private jets — one of which was known as the “Lolita Express” owing to the perversion and child rape known to have been ubiquitous on board. To the point, unlike other associates of Epstein, such as Bill Clinton, Gates only began his relationship with Epstein after the pervert was convicted on child-prostitution charges in Florida that forced him to register as a sex offender. Gates’ employees also regularly visited Epstein’s mansion. And Gates’ former science advisor, Boris Nikolic, was listed as a back-up executor for Epstein’s will, according to media reports.
As for globalist associations, while Gates himself is not listed as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Microsoft Corporation is listed on its website as a corporate member. In 2003, the Gates Foundation also gave a grant to the group to establish a “Senior Fellowship” in “Global Health and Foreign Policy.” Then-CFR boss Leslie Gelb explained the purpose like this: “Global health issues must be integrated, in study and in practice, into U.S. foreign policymaking. This will be the chief mission of the new Senior Fellow in Global Health Policy Studies.”
It worked. Just a few years later, the Obama administration launched the “Global Health Initiative,” showering billions of U.S. tax dollars on contraception and $63 billion on “improving global health.” Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who said publicly that the CFR tells her “what we should be doing, and how we should think about the future,” was crucial in the scheme, too. If globalist billionaires funding “senior fellowships” at the CFR can hijack U.S. policy so easily — and they can — just imagine how easy it is for them to control bankrupt and corrupt Third World kleptocracies to advance a New World Order.
Gates also wrote an article in the CFR mouthpiece Foreign Affairs promoting “gene editing” technology to engineer organisms, bio-tech developments that will be important in his coronavirus vaccine schemes. Before that, Gates’ wife gave a speech there in 2008 praising the CFR for the “indispensable work you do.” “Your work benefits every American,” she claimed about the organization, which has been instrumental in surrendering U.S. sovereignty and eroding constitutional government. Melinda also said, “I would like to acknowledge a special debt to the Council,” adding that the “success of our efforts” depends on “informed decisions by policymakers” whom the CFR influences.
Gates has also been an attendee at the infamous Bilderberg summits, the semi-secret group of about 120 to 150 extremely influential (mostly) Americans, Canadians, and Europeans that meets once per year behind heavy security. The shadowy group, whose members have admitted to plotting global policy and working toward world government, has started releasing lists of attendees. On at least one occasion, Gates was not listed but was spotted sneaking in by reporters outside. Critics have suggested that American participants — business tycoons, politicians, officials, bankers, and more — ought to be prosecuted under the Logan Act, which prohibits Americans from working on policy with foreign governments without having official authorization to do so.
Another Gates group with less-than-noble aims is known as the “Good Club.” In 2009, the Times of London reported on a secret meeting of top globalist billionaires aimed at reducing the population. The article, headlined “Billionaire club in bid to curb overpopulation,” reported that “some of America’s leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population.” The summit was “convened on the initiative of Bill Gates,” the report said, and the billionaires “discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change.”
Others in attendance included New World Order architect David Rockefeller, who boasted in his memoirs of “conspiring” “against the interests” of his own country with a “secret cabal” to create “a more integrated global political and economic structure — One World, if you will.” Also among the “Good Club” are Warren Buffett, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Ted Turner, and Oprah Winfrey. Aside from their fervent desire to reduce the population, all of the members seem to have an infatuation with Chinese dictator Xi and a vitriolic hatred of President Trump.
Can He and His Cronies Be Stopped?
On the bright side, the public appears to be waking up. All over America, protesters showed up at state capitols to demand a restoration of liberty and an end to the lockdowns. Outrage against Gates and his agenda is boiling over too. A petition on the White House website calling for investigations into the Gates Foundation, “for medical malpractice and crimes against humanity,” gathered 500,000 signatures in just three weeks — more than five times the number of signatories needed to get a formal response from the president.
“As we look at events surrounding the ‘COVID-19 pandemic,’ various questions remain unanswered,” the petition reads. “On Oct. 18th of 2019, only weeks prior to ground zero being declared in Wuhan, China, two major events took place. One is ‘Event 201,’ the other is the ‘Military World Games,’ held in none other than Wuhan. Since then a worldwide push for vaccines & biometric tracking has been initiated. At the forefront of this is Bill Gates, who has publicly stated his interest in ‘reducing population growth’ by 10-15%, by means of vaccination. Gates, UNICEF & WHO have already been credibly accused of intentionally sterilizing Kenyan children through the use of a hidden HCG antigen in tetanus vaccines. Congress & all other governing bodies are derelict in duty until a thorough and public inquiry is complete.”
A thorough congressional investigation of Gates and his foundation, along the lines of the 1952 Select Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations, is long overdue. The Senate Environment Committee scratched the surface with its 2014 report on the “Billionaires Club” behind the “green” movement. But the Gates, Rockefeller, Ford, Soros, Bloomberg, and other foundations are clearly up to no good — and they are using their oftentimes ill-gotten wealth to hijack government and undermine freedom.
Even more alarming is that he is not done yet. Not only has he claimed that we cannot get back to normal until there is a new coronavirus vaccine, but he is also assuming that the current coronavirus pandemic will not be the only one. “No one who lives through Pandemic 1 will ever forget it,” he warned. How Americans respond to “Pandemic 2” may well determine whether freedom and self-government survive.
Black Lives Matter (#BLM) is a communist-inspired movement which, in the words of Larry Grathwohl, former FBI informant in the Weather Underground, exploits blacks and other minorities groups to turn them into revolutionaries fighting for socialism in the United States. The death of George Floyd is not the cause of the burning of America but the excuse.
This is not to say that white youth have not also been ignorantly sucked into the communist revolution, for many have been trained by Marxist professors at our state universities. The coalescing of all of these young radicals who are agitating for an “Abolish the Police” movement has been occurring since the 1960’s.
As stated on the Freedom Road Socialist Organization website (which changed its name in 2019 to simply Liberation Road), “The FRSO is recruiting and building towards the creation of a new Communist Party based on Marxism-Leninism. This is necessary to lead the way to socialism and liberation.” The FRSO is the “guiding force” behind Black Lives Matter.
Black Lives Matter
BLM launched in 2013 with the Twitter hashtag, #BlackLivesMatter, following the George Zimmerman acquittal in the shooting of Trayvon Martin. It was founded by three radical leftist women; Patrisse Khan-Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi. All three of these founders work for “front groups” of the FRSO.
Cullors describes herself as a “working class, queer, black woman.” At a 2015 Netroots Nation conference, she led chants shouting, “If I die in police custody, burn everything down … rise the f____ up! That is the only way the m_______f_______s like you will listen!” (Accuracy in Media expose).
Cullors was trained by Eric Mann, a former Weather Underground communist who exhorts his followers to become “anti-racist, anti-imperialist.”
Garza claims that she is “queer.” She is an Oakland-based writer whose articles have been featured in major Main Stream Media publications. Her claim is that the “tragic deaths of Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown were catalysts for the emergence of the BLM movement.” Both of those young men, however, were shown to be street thugs who were killed by individuals protecting their own lives from their vicious assaults.
Tometi is the daughter of illegal aliens from Nigeria. She worked for the communist-founded ACLU while in college and is currently executive director of Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI).
These women are joined by Nelini Stamp, who popularized the phrase “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” which was a manufactured lie emerging from the Michael Brown case. Nelini Stamp has said: “we are actually trying to change the capitalist system we have today because it is not working for any of us.”
Freedom Road Socialist Organization
The FRSO is a “hereditary descendant of the New Communist Movement inspired by Chinese dictator Mao Zedong and the many communist revolutionaries occurring throughout the world in the 1960’s and 70’s” (James Simpson, Capitalist Research Center).
In 2016, Freedom Road mourned the death of Tim Thomas, one of its leaders. The blogpost stated that Tim “was a revolutionary organizer, writer and educator … At George Washington University, Tim became active in the Black Liberation and Marxist movement that remained his life-long passion….Tim was a leader of the SOBU (Student Organization for Black Unity) and later YOBU (Youth Organization for Black Unity).”
Tim Thomas, the statement goes on to eulogize, “joined the Revolutionary Workers League in 1972 and later the League of Revolutionary Struggle (LRS), a New Communist Movement group that brought together in one organization Asian-American, Chicano, Puerto Rican, African American, and white communists who shared a vision of national liberation as a critical element of communist revolution. After that group dissolved in 1990, Tim and a number of former LRS comrades came into the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, where they continue to advance the theory and practice of self-determination socialism.”
The goals of FRSO as well as BLM are pretty clear.
The FRSO began officially in 1985 when two smaller organizations, Proletarian Unity League and the Revolutionary Workers Headquarters, formed the FRSO. Bot the PUL and the RWH were a part of the New Communist Movement. Other groups such as a West Coast group called the Organization for Revolutionary Unity joined hands with the FRSO through the years.
Added to that is the fact that the FRSO and BLM work primarily today through the Democratic Party. Jamala Rogers, National Executive Committee, urged her comrades to work inside the Democratic Party in a 2008 article posted on their website. “Build locally based, independent, progressive mass electoral organizations that can identify, train, and run candidates for office with the Democratic Party or independents, depending upon the situation at the local level.”
Funding & Membership
The BLM, being a spin-off of the FRSO, has had much help from communists such as Van Jones to obtain funding. Van Jones is another communist who has been given so much favorable media coverage in the MSM, even earning a place at round table discussions on a variety of news stations.
Some of the wealthy foundations which supply financial backing to BLM and FRSO as well as other satellite sister organizations spawned by this communist revolution include Ben & Jerry’s, Ford Foundation, Kellogg Foundation, Rockefeller and many of George Soros’ sponsored groups such as the Tides Foundation.
Accuracy in Media (AIM) describes the ever-changing list of communist-oriented causes now coalescing around FRSO and BLM.
BLM’s mission includes a kitchen sink of favored Left causes, including support of poverty elimination programs, prison deinstitutionalization, illegal immigration and gay rights. Highlighting FRSO’s orientation toward gay blacks, it describes how ‘Black, queer and trans folks bear a unique burden from hetero-patriarchal society that disposes of us like garbage and simultaneously fetishizes us and profits off of us, and that is state violence.
As Vladimir Lenin stated, “We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth … We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.”
Writing in 1962, biblical scholar and anti-communist lecturer, James Bales exposed in Communism: Its Faith and Fallacies, the primary goal of communists for the crumbling of America was to Incite Racial Minorities. “The Chinese Communists have also tried to incite racial minorities to rebellion” (Quoted from Soviet Russia in China, 361).
Bales observes: “For a period of time they advocated Lenin’s doctrine of so-called ‘self-determination for all racial groups.’ This was in order to weaken a nation by promising independence to each racial group within it. Thus for years in America the communists advocated the idea of a black republic in America. This they called ‘self-determination for the black belt.’”
Although this specific strategy has morphed into others, Bales warned:
The united front movement is being revived. Open and hidden communists are endeavoring to use racial problems as a means of dividing our country and making and using for their own purposes those who are blind enough to form temporary alliances with them. They are not interested in solving these problems but in weakening the country so that it will be easier for them to take over.
America has not heeded the warning. Instead, our young people continue to be indoctrinated by many public schools and universities. Even Christians and church members, coming to the “communist game” in America in the last inning, ignorantly think the death of George Floyd and its violent aftermath is all about police brutality. They tweet #BLM to join the chorus. But it is our ignorance of the real roots of what is happening in America is what will destroy us.
We have seemingly heard more how racist is white America within the last decade than ever before. The British Academy Awards this year featured Joaquin Phoenix lecturing the film industry for its “systemic racism.” The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops published a “pastoral letter” in 2018 which indicts the entire western culture for being racist at a “systemic” level.
What exactly is systemic racism? According to theconversation.com, which published the article regarding Joaquin Phoenix, “systemic” or “institutional” racism refers to how “ideas of white superiority are captured in everyday thinking at a systems level: taking in the big picture of how society operates, rather than looking at one-on-one interactions.” These “systems can include laws and regulations, but also unquestioned social systems,” such as education and hiring practices.
What proofs are normally offered that white America is “systemically racist?” The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops offers frontlines four primary facts which supposedly support the conclusion. First, unemployment rates for African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans are considerably higher than the national average.
Second, in the United States, the “median wealth” for white households is ten times greater than for black households, and eight times greater than for Hispanic households. Three, minority home ownership rates lag behind their white counterparts. Four, African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans are “disproportionately affected through every stage of the criminal justice system.”
The socialist-inspired conclusion that the bishops wish one to draw is the assumption that disparities result because foul-play must be involved. People of color suffer injustices from “white society.” But differences among peoples and subcultures as a possible cause is never considered—that would be the “politically incorrect” thing to do. No discussion ever occurs on whether or not minority subcultures actually value different ideas. No examination of personal choices; no study of what minority cultures may be infusing into its own people; no time pondering divergent habits or values that may be ingrained in minority populations—simply announce that America is a “racist” society—systemically so.
What about other statistics which show disparity? For example, out-of-wedlock birth rates for different racial and ethnic groups in 2008 was just over 40 percent. The breakdown of that statistic shows that among white non-Hispanic women, the out-of-wedlock birth rate was 28.6 percent; among Hispanics it was 52.5 percent; but among blacks the figure jumps to a startling 72.3 percent.
What about abortion? In 2005 the abortion rate for blacks in the United States is almost 5 times than for white women. Similar “disparities” are found in almost every measurable statistic. Fatherless homes rank as a continuing problem, particularly among minority communities where male children growing up without fathers severs a child from male leadership outside of teenage gang memberships.
Is this to say that minorities have an immoral DNA? No. But it does show that those communities that are more totally dependent upon the government through systems of welfare have a deteriorating moral standard. That’s the nature of government dependency. Witness the Indian reservations wherein every single social malady skyrockets compared to the wider culture. Abortion, suicide, alcoholism, joblessness, fatherless homes and drug abuse are common problems associated with Indian reservations.
The point is simply this; in statistics that are measurable minority communities indicate that they have a different value system. Their moral standards have been corroded. And unless we can face these hard facts there is no hope for America.
Communist strategy has always been to exploit the natural fissures of society. Chiang Kai-shek, president of the Republic of China who passed in 1975, contended with communism for over thirty years. His first-hand observation was that the communist strategy is “always to analyze a country’s social structure before infiltrating it. They not only explore and exploit, but also create professional, regional, and religious contradictions. Then in the midst of the confusion, they win the masses over by disseminating propaganda about class struggle and establishing party cells among them.” Drive wedges into the natural divisions of society.
Vladimir Lenin stated in 1921 that it is “possible to defeat a more powerful enemy only by exerting the utmost effort, and by being thorough, careful, attentive and skillful in taking advantage of various kinds of fissures, even the smallest ones, on the part of the enemy …” That which naturally commended itself to communist infiltration was the racial divide in America.
Little wonder that the Roman Catholic bishops are now led by Marxist-oriented Pope Francis. It is also no coincidence that in seeking to establish “systemic racism” in America theconversation.com (cited above) leads with a quote from communist “Black Power” militant Stokely Carmichael to accentuate racism in America. Carmichael, originally from Trinidad, became interested in High School in studying the work of none other than Karl Marx from which he became an immediate militant demonstrating against the House Committee on Un-American Activities that had been exposing communists in America.
No need today for exposure of communist militants working “behind-the-scenes.” Saboteurs of our culture work in high places such as the former Obama Administration; the Vatican; and various professorships in academia. Therefore, we will increasingly hear how “systemic” our racism has been. It is past time to question their assumptions.
Under the guise of fighting the coronavirus, globalists are instituting policies that will bring about global government, total surveillance, and unending personal controls.
Using the panic over the coronavirus as a pretext, the Deep State and its propagandists have been working overtime to fundamentally transform society — especially on the economic front. Virtually every Deep State objective is being peddled as a supposed solution or treatment for the Chinese virus. From going “cashless” with digital currency, to endless money printing by the Federal Reserve, to crashing the economy with “stay-at-home” orders, to getting everyone dependent on government with so-called stimulus payments as the productive economy grinds to a halt, to globalizing the monetary system, the danger is very real. The push to crush privacy, the middle class, and what remains of the free market system has gone into overdrive. The risks are enormous.
The economic devastation unleashed largely by government decree — mostly at the state level — has already been catastrophic. Stocks lost almost 30 percent in less than a month, wiping out all the gains made under President Trump over three years. Everyday Americans were fleeced. According to the Wall Street Journal, though, top executives at U.S.-traded companies dumped almost $10 billion in shares of their own firms between early February and the market collapse, saving them billions. A number of lawmakers also had amazing timing, including Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and others with access to inside information, selling millions of dollars worth of stock before the collapse.
But the stock market collapse and the pain felt by Wall Street may be overshadowed by the devastation of main street. Millions of Americans are losing their jobs amid the crisis, and more probably will soon. The wave of firings and furloughs was so huge that it crashed unemployment websites nationwide. St. Louis Fed projections estimate some 47 million Americans could lose their jobs. Because surveys show most Americans still live paycheck to paycheck, those job losses are going to continue reverberating through the economy as payments are missed for cars, rent, credit cards, and more. Countless small businesses — and potentially even major companies — may shut forever, even with federal bailouts. Just look at car sales: down about 36 percent just from February to March.
In response to the economic chaos unleashed by the government-ordered shut-down of the economy, Congress and the Federal Reserve System sprang into action to make the problems worse. While ostensibly aiming to prop up markets and provide $6 trillion or more of “stimulus,” or about $70,000 per American family of four, the goals are obviously much broader. Lawmakers in Washington, D.C., for instance, immediately launched plans for a $2 trillion spending bill that would shower funny money on companies, individuals, and practically everybody — at least those with lobbyists on Capitol Hill. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) described it as a “wartime level of investment.”
Naturally, Democrats advanced proposals to tie the “stimulus” funding to mandates that would fundamentally transform America. They tried to sneak in everything from “climate” regulations on air travel to “diversity” mandates for corporate boards to big bucks for abortion giant Planned Parenthood and other Democratic cronies. “All private hospitals should be made public for the duration of the virus,” U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) wrote on Twitter, in one of many Democratic proposals to further empower Big Government. Democrats also pushed for more “collective bargaining” for federal employees. Many of those schemes, though not all, were killed by GOP lawmakers, who were more interested in peddling corporate welfare. Still, the devastating consequences of this bailout bonanza will be felt for decades to come.
The “Stimulus” Scam
In the end, the package included a $500 billion “corporate liquidity” welfare slush fund that will bail out big corporations such as airlines, hotels (not President Trump’s), and others impacted by the coronavirus hysteria — all of it with “strings” attached, of course, such as no stock buybacks allowed for at least a year, and no arguing with Big Labor. Small businesses got a $350 billion fund. The bailout bill also provides $100 billion for hospitals as part of what was described as a “Marshall Plan.”
Lobbyists for bloated state and local governments, which have trillions in outlandish pension liabilities, managed to convince Congress to include an unconstitutional $150 billion bailout not only for pensions, but for state/local bonds and debts, and government spending. There are also smaller amounts to bail out everything from tribal governments and farmers to the government propaganda scheme known as the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The IRS, refugee resettlement agencies, museums, universities, and more all got bailouts too. Government schools at the K-12 level will be receiving almost $15 billion to start as the education establishment scrambles to keep children trapped in “failing government schools,” as President Trump put it in his 2020 State of the Union address.
Individual Americans below certain income thresholds, meanwhile, were slated to receive a $1,200 check each, plus an additional $500 per child, in addition to massive infusions of cash for state unemployment systems to pay out 100 percent of lost wages. Congressman Thomas Massie called that the cheese in the mousetrap. More than a few socialists are pushing the narrative that it is time to consider a government-provided “Universal Basic Income” that would get everyone dependent on the feds.
Where that money was supposed to come from was hardly discussed — especially odd considering the $23 trillion national debt, not counting the new spending for the stimulus. Instead, Republicans and Democrats squabbled about who would get it, what strings would be attached, and what sort of other unconstitutional policies could be hidden inside the gargantuan package. In reality, it would be hard to find enough suckers to lend Uncle Sam another $2 trillion when they are guaranteed to lose money on the spread between inflation and the interest. Experts say Congress will likely just “print” the money by issuing more Treasury bonds and then expecting the privately owned Federal Reserve System to “monetize” that debt by creating currency out of nothing.
Critics blasted the scheme. “This profligate spending will do little to help the American economy or average citizens in the long run,” explained Jeff Deist, president of the pro-market Ludwig von Mises Institute. “But the additional debt added to an already whopping $1 trillion 2020 federal deficit will plague taxpayers for years…. More money and more cheap credit can’t stimulate anything in such an environment, because money and credit aren’t goods and services. It can and will, however, saddle future generations of Americans with more debt misery and entrench a standard of moral hazard for corporations from which free markets may never recover.”
Aside from the enormous congressional spending spree, the Federal Reserve has once again decided that opening the floodgates with “unlimited” trillions in new currency is the way to go as well. The infusion of trillions of newly created dollars into the economy will further erode the purchasing power of the money in circulation, resulting in rising prices. But the Fed will not only be firing up the printing presses, it will also be buying everything in sight, ranging from U.S. Treasury debt and municipal bonds to mortgage-backed securities and even corporate bonds. The Fed is now literally loaning money it creates out of thin air directly to businesses, both large and small, at interest. Early estimates suggest the Fed may create as much as $4 trillion for “stimulus” and bailouts. Despite almost a decade of outrageously low interest rates, the central bank also slashed interest rates down to zero in the largest single-day interest rate cut in U.S. history.
The new schemes, which will amount to trillions of new dollars injected into Fed-backed sectors of the economy, may go beyond even the unprecedented policies from the 2008 crisis. By the time that fiasco was all over, the special inspector general for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP) estimated the potential total cost of the combined crisis bailouts at $23.7 trillion — more than $75,000 per person in the United States. The Fed also ended up owning such prize assets as the Red Roof Inn, a national hotel chain that the banking cartel purchased with fiat currency that it created from nothing.
Even establishment analysts expressed surprise at the enormity of the current Fed machinations compared with those from the last crisis. “The actions taken are breath-taking in their scope. Indeed, these steps surpass in breadth and depth the measures that the Fed created in the midst of the financial crisis a decade ago,” explained Wells Fargo’s Jay Bryson, comparing the new policies to the relatively less gigantic interventions under former Fed boss Ben Bernanke. “If the Fed pulled out a monetary policy ‘bazooka’ during that crisis, then the steps it announced this morning are the central bank equivalent of ‘going nuclear.’”
The consequences of this, of course, may prove cataclysmic to the economy and the currency, as more than a few experts pointed out. “None of this is working — none of this can work,” fumed Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital, noting that the coronavirus was just the “pin” and that a dollar crisis was inevitable even without the viral hysteria. “Nothing is going to stop the bottom from falling out from under the dollar.” Pointing to Zimbabwe, Venezuela, and the Weimar Republic before them, Schiff said the same money-printing policies pursued in America will produce the same consequences as they did in those nations: hyperinflation and economic catastrophe.
This is the crisis Schiff has been warning about for many years, he said. “This is the beginning of the end,” warned Schiff, touting gold as a safe haven amid the chaos. “This is how it starts. And believe me, when you see how this finishes, this is going to be unlike anything we have experienced. I think we have passed that point of no return. It’s like we’ve already jumped off the top of the building, off the top of the Empire State Building. There’s no way to change our minds now. We’re going to hit that pavement. I can’t see any way we can avoid that. All we can do is brace for impact ourselves.”
While Schiff and other analysts have touted gold and precious metals ahead of the expected destruction of the currency, some experts are sounding the alarm on that as well. Trends forecaster Gerald Celente, for instance, echoed President Trump about the cure being worse than the disease, and warned of coming gold confiscation by government. “They are destroying the global economy. They are destroying people’s lives,” he said. “When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose, they lose it. You are going to see gangs like never before.”
Just as during the Great Depression and other economic crises, the poor and middle-class in America are being looted. As asset prices collapse in this controlled demolition of the economy, globalists and mega-bankers will step in and scoop up real-estate, businesses, and more for pennies on the dollar. Americans will be left holding the bag in the form of higher taxes and ever-greater debt levels.
The push to globalize the monetary system in response to coronavirus is also on. As regular readers of this magazine know well, the Deep State has been grooming the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to become a global central bank for decades. And during this crisis, there has been quite a bit of chatter about transforming the IMF’s proto-global currency, known as “Special Drawing Rights” (SDRs), into a full-blown global currency. There is also talk by top IMF leaders of “boosting global liquidity” by creating SDRs. Less than a year ago, top globalists at the World Economic Forum, including José Antonio Ocampo, a Columbia University professor, were openly calling for turning the SDR into “a true global currency.” Many top officials from around the world have said the same thing.
In her response to the virus, IMF boss Kristalina Georgieva of Bulgaria sounded ready to push globalism full speed. “How deep the contraction and how fast the recovery depends on the speed of containment of the pandemic and on how strong and coordinated our monetary and fiscal policy actions are,” she said during a March 26 G20 meeting. (Emphasis added.) “We must act at par with the magnitude of the challenge. For us at the IMF it means working with you to make our crisis response even stronger. For this we ask your backing to double our emergency financing capacity and boost global liquidity through a sizeable SDR (Special Drawing Right) allocation, as we successfully did during the 2009 global crisis and by expanding the use of swap type facilities at the Fund.”
Georgieva also boasted that the IMF could “quickly disburse $50 billion through its emergency financing facilities” to “help” poorer nations “dealing with COVID-19.” Those governments have already “asked the IMF to make an SDR allocation” for them, she said. The IMF boss vowed to make up to $1 trillion in lending capacity, too. In short, global “quantitative easing” with the global wannabe currency SDR, made up of a basket of national currencies including the dollar, is setting the stage for even “bolder” actions during the next crisis. They are laying the groundwork for turning the SDR into a true global currency, so that eventually, the IMF can do what the Fed is doing, on a global scale. “Together we will lay the ground for a faster and stronger recovery,” she concluded, saying this is “a global problem calling for a global response.”
Digital Dollars: War on Cash and Privacy
Making sure that the crisis created by government and the Fed does not go to waste, totalitarians have been pushing the Deep State’s cashless-society agenda like there is no tomorrow. The accelerating war on cash is now being justified by the establishment’s propagandists because cash is supposedly transmitting coronavirus. And the propaganda is having the desired effect. According to Fox News, many businesses nationwide are discouraging or outright declining to accept cash. In South Korea, authorities removed all currency from circulation for two weeks while encouraging everyone to use cards and mobile phones. Other governments are joining in.
Seeking to exploit the fear to advance the war on cash (and privacy), American Democrats twice tried to sneak language creating a “digital dollar” and a “digital wallet” controlled by the Federal Reserve into coronavirus legislation. Under the scheme, which was removed before passage, Americans would have received their “stimulus” payments as “digital dollars” via a “digital dollar wallet.” Proponents of the scheme were thrilled. “It is worth exploring, testing, and piloting a true USD CBDC [Central Bank Digital Currency] and broader digital infrastructure in order to improve our future capabilities and resiliency,” founding director of the Digital Dollar Project Daniel Gorfine told Forbes.
The two Democratic bills defined a digital dollar as “a balance expressed as a dollar value consisting of digital ledger entries that are recorded as liabilities in the accounts of any Federal Reserve Bank or … an electronic unit of value, redeemable by an eligible financial institution (as determined by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System).” The digital wallets, also defined in the legislation, would be tied to a “digital identity” and would be maintained by the Federal Reserve, according to the original bills. In short, globalists and central bankers and their allies and dupes in legislatures are hoping to exploit this crisis to advance a cashless society — something that would enable total surveillance, and, incidentally, the negative interest rates they have been pushing for so long, making people pay for the privilege of having their money in a bank, rather than simply keeping their cash at home.
Communist China seems to be the model for shifting away from cash and toward electronic payment systems and digital currency. In fact, the dictatorship appears to be the preferred Deep State model when it comes to “fighting viruses.” Consider a 2010 report by the Rockefeller Foundation titled “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development.” The document envisions a future pandemic scenario, dubbed “Lock Step” in the report, in which the United States suffers due to a lack of tyranny, while China fares much better.
“The Chinese government’s quick imposition and enforcement of mandatory quarantine for all citizens … saved millions of lives, stopping the spread of the virus far earlier than in other countries and enabling a swifter post-pandemic recovery,” the report says, touting the imagined responses of other authoritarian regimes, too. The document then goes on to outline the citizen-demanded “top-down direction and oversight” over nations and economies. It mentions, among other policies, “biometric ID for all citizens,” “tighter regulation of key industries,” “a suite of new regulations and agreements,” and more to “restore order and, importantly, economic growth.”
Not surprisingly, these are exactly the sort of schemes that Deep State globalists are pushing for coronavirus. The “ID2020” scheme backed by billionaire population-control zealot Bill Gates of Microsoft and the Rockefeller Foundation, for example, falls right in line. According to the effort’s website, the plot seeks to give everyone on Earth a “digital identity” that would follow them from birth to death. And it would also keep track of all sorts of data, including health and vaccine information, enabling governments and globalists to keep people everywhere under control.
Separately, Gates, who backed the Orwellian Event 201 (see page 39), partnered with other globalists to fund research at MIT on “a novel way to record a patient’s vaccination history: storing the data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine.” In a press release about the scheme released right around the time COVID-19 was identified in Wuhan, MIT said the technology “consists of nanocrystals called quantum dots.” This tattoo-type scheme would “remain under the skin where it emits near-infrared light that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone.”
As far as new regulation, the establishment’s propaganda organs have gone into overdrive peddling new and “improved” controls over the economy. As previously mentioned, Democrats tried to stuff the “stimulus” bill with all sorts of new mandates, including large parts of the “Green New Deal” agenda. Climate alarmists everywhere, meanwhile, are publicly working to ensure that America and the world will never go back to the pre-coronavirus economy with its heavy reliance on petroleum and other fuels by trying to make the new regime permanent. How much they will be able to get away with considering President Trump is in office remains to be seen. But the precedent has now been set — just wait until the next “pandemic” or “crisis” to see how far they will go.
The only real solution to the economic calamity afflicting the American economy is to get the people back to work, and the government out of the way. It was government, the Deep State’s propaganda machine, and the Fed that caused this crisis — period. And they know very well that a collapsed economy would kill and maim far more people than the Chinese virus ever could. Transferring America’s wealth to the elites connected to the Federal Reserve and the political class via this engineered destruction of the economy is a crime of epic proportions.
To prevent an even greater economic disaster going forward, Americans must first go back to work, followed by a drastic cut in the size and scope of government. Holding Communist China and the global elites accountable is important, too. Finally, the Federal Reserve must be dismantled so that an honest, sound monetary system can take root and unleash genuine prosperity. Freedom is literally the cure!
United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet blasted the Trump administration for its policies on immigration, the environment, and more. According to the far-left UN boss, a Chilean socialist with close ties to mass-murdering communist dictatorships, the U.S. government threatens everything from water and children to “human rights.” Many Third World regimes, by contrast, were praised by Bachelet for their alleged progress in complying with UN demands.
Among Bachelet’s most significant targets was the White House effort to secure the border and enforce U.S. immigration law. “Restrictive U.S. migration policies raise significant human rights concerns,” the UN “human rights” chief claimed during a recent session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. “Reducing the number of people trying to enter the country should not be done in disregard of asylum and migrant protections. The situation of children in detention is of particular concern.”
Bachelet, who once defected to the mass-murdering East German dictatorship, was referring to Trump’s attempts to somewhat slow the enormous flow of illegal migrants into the United States — the nation that accepts more immigrants than any other on the planet, by far. How accepting more migrants than any country on Earth could be viewed as “restrictive” was not explained. The claim about children in detention was also left unexplained, with the UN human rights chief not making clear whether she believed having children in tow should constitute a proverbial “get out of jail free” card for any and all criminals.
Of course, in the real world, pouring untreated pollutants into a river or stream — and especially into drinking water — is a crime in every single state. Under the U.S. Constitution, which delegates a few limited powers to the central government, federal authorities actually have no regulatory authority over rivers, streams, or other environmental issues. Instead, as the 10th Amendment makes clear, those powers are reserved to the states or to the people who own the property that is affected.
As if to prove that the UN does indeed intend to control every aspect of human life, even the current regulation of fuel standards in the United States is now a target of the UN’s human rights machine. “Weaker fuel emission standards for vehicles, and decreased regulations on the oil and gas industries, could also harm human rights,” claimed Bachelet, as if American energy independence and slightly less onerous (but still unconstitutional) federal regulations on the energy sector were some sort of human rights crisis requiring UN intervention.
Meanwhile, Bachelet had nothing but praises for more than a few brutal regimes that literally remain in power through terror and mass murder. Not a word of condemnation, for instance, was handed out to the mass-murdering Communist Chinese regime, which has millions of dissidents in re-education camps and continues to perpetrate forced abortions, among other horrific violations of actual human rights. Bachelet said only that she welcomes the invitation to visit to “analyze in depth the human rights situation in China,” and that other governments should “do their utmost to combat discrimination” against Chinese people in light of the coronavirus. Seriously.
Regarding her native Chile, which has been under intense attack by communist forces led in part by Venezuelan and Cuban intelligence operatives, Bachelet demanded that authorities there “address the protests’ root causes: inequalities.” In other words, to placate the violent rioters and looters seeking the overthrow of individual liberty and economic freedom with Marxism, Chile must accept more Marxism. Seriously. Her office has apparently “provided recommendations” to Chilean authorities “for a sustainable roadmap guided by human rights norms.”
Of course, this is not the first time Bachelet has attacked the Trump administration and its policies. In fact, last summer, she lashed out against the U.S. government, claiming to be “appalled” and “deeply shocked” by the enforcement of federal immigration law. Taking the globalist extremism to new heights, she even claimed the U.S. government’s practice of detaining illegal immigrant self-proclaimed “families” for prosecution may be “prohibited by international law” for being “cruel” or “degrading.”
“In most of these cases, the migrants and refugees have embarked on perilous journeys with their children in search of protection and dignity and away from violence and hunger,” Bachelet said, displaying either ignorance or dishonesty regarding the true situation at the U.S. border. “When they finally believe they have arrived in safety, they may find themselves separated from their loved ones and locked in undignified conditions. This should never happen anywhere.”
In reality, as the U.S. government has thoroughly documented, human-smuggling rings are using children — some of whom are being trafficked for sex slavery — as a pretext to avoid detention after crossing the border illegally. “They are pairing children with unrelated adults, knowing adults who enter the United States with children won’t be detained,” explained U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, citing a recent Department of Homeland Security Human Smuggling Cell report. Some of those children are kidnapped for the purpose, he continued, noting that once in the United States, they are often sold into sex or labor slavery. Many of the smugglers use fake documents to make it seem like the children are part of their “family.”
Before Bachelet’s comments, Deputy Human Rights High Commissioner Kate Gilmore lambasted the state of Alabama for trying to protect the lives of innocent children, calling the alleged attack on “women’s rights” a “crisis.” Another “human rights” spokesman for the UN also chimed in on the issue, saying the global body was “very concerned” about American states passing laws that “define all unborn children as persons.” In the UN’s view, murdering pre-born babies is a “human right,” while protecting the God-given right to life of those same children is a violation of human rights.
Of course, the UN has a very different view of “human rights” than Americans’ traditional understanding. America’s Founding Fathers declared that rights were endowed upon each individual by God, and that governments are created to protect those pre-existing, unalienable rights. The UN, by contrast, makes clear that governments and international instruments are the source of “rights” (really privileges) and that those pseudo-rights can be revoked or limited by government at will. In Article 29, the UN’s “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” states that those supposed “rights” may “in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.”
