The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is granted special governing powers by his parliament, but globalists are claiming that such powers have turned Hungary into a de facto dictatorship! We’re going to look at the powers that have been granted to Prime Minister Orban, and see what’s REALLY happening in Hungary and with the hysteria from the mainstream media; I think you’ll find it very informative.


Back in January, the Air Force promised One America News it would release all passenger lists showing Hunter Biden flying with his father and former Vice President Joe Biden aboard Air Force Two. However, they suddenly reversed their decision and have said they will not publicly release the lists. One America’s Richard Pollock has this exclusive report from Washington.

(Friday Church News Notes, April 3,, 866-295-4143) - Pentecostal preacher Kenneth Copeland has exercised his prophetic “Word-Faith” powers to take authority over Covid-19 and to declare America healed. He said, “Standing in the Office of the Prophet of God, I execute judgement on you, COVID 19. ... I demand a vaccination to come immediately. I call you done. I call you gone. ... It is finished. It is over. And the United States of America is healed and well again, sayeth the mighty Spirit of peace who is also the Prince of War” (“Judgment Is Executed on Covid-19,” Mar. 30, 2020, YouTube). This deluded man is a reproach to the cause of Jesus Christ and the Word of God. I have seen him command a hurricane to dissolve and a crippled girl to be healed, and after the huffing and puffing and commanding and proclaiming was finished, the hurricane was still a destructive hurricane and the crippled girl was still crippled. It’s on video for all to see, just like this present fiasco. Jesus Christ can command storms and heal every disease, and He gave miracle-working sign gifts to His apostles to prove their apostleship. “Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds” (2 Co. 12:12). But Copeland is not an apostle. He is “deceiving and being deceived” (2 Ti. 3:13), like the other Word-Faith hoaxers. I believe in miracles and have seen a great many miracles over these past 47 years of walking with Christ, and I believe in healing and have seen miraculous healings in answer to prayer, but we can’t demand and command these things. In this present time, we walk by faith, not sight, as we wait for the “manifestation of the sons of God” (Ro. 8:18-25).

(Friday Church News Notes, April 3,, 866-295-4143) - Pentecostal pastor Rodney Howard-Browne was arrested on Sunday, March 29, by Hillsborough County (Tampa, Florida) deputies for holding services in violation of county orders. He was charged with a misdemeanor for “unlawful assembly and violating quarantine orders during a public health emergency” and released on bail within 40 minutes. Sheriff Chad Chronister said, “Our goal here is not to stop anyone from worshiping, but the safety and well-being of our community must always come first” (Tampa Bay Times, Mar. 30, 2020). Quoting Mark 12:31, Chronister said, “Loving your neighbors is protecting them, not jeopardizing their health by exposing them to this deadly virus.” I’m not a fan of Howard-Browne, to say the least, who is a Word-Faith heretic, practices the near-insanity of Spirit-laughter and Spirit-drunkenness, and is a conspiratorial nut who has allegedly said that the covid-19 pandemic is a “phantom plague” created by the Chinese and planned at a Bill Gates Foundation event (Tampa Bay Times). But even heretics and nuts are guaranteed freedom of speech and freedom of religion and freedom of assembly under the U.S. Constitution. (And the government should not be in the business of deciding who is or isn’t a heretic or a nut.) These are indeed trying times, and it will be interesting to see how this case is decided.

(Friday Church News Notes, April 3, 2020,, 866-295-4143) - The bottom line is that America needs to repent of her wickedness before God. Radical political action and multi-trillion dollar national debts will not solve America’s ills, because the fundamental issue is her terrible sin against the God that has shown her such light and mercy. And the very root of it all is the apostasy, corruption, compromise, worldliness, and lukewarmness in her churches. And that includes the majority of the most staunchly conservative, evangelical, “fundamentalist,” and even “independent Baptist”! From my perspective, most “Bible-believing” churches in America are lukewarm at best. I believe that the promise of God to Solomon at the dedication of the temple has a proper application to God’s people in America today. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14). What happens in God’s house dramatically affects the White House. It’s high time to exchange a frivolous fun and games program, an entertainment program with a thin veneer of religiosity, for a program of serious prayer, serious Bible study, serious Bible preaching with exegetical substance and plain reproof and rebuke, serious holiness, serious separation from the wickedness of this fallen world, serious pilgrim Christianity, serious Christian living in the homes, being serious about the fathers being the heads of the homes and the mothers being the keepers of the home, serious about putting God’s will before economics, serious training of children and discipling of youth, and above all, serious about a regenerate church membership!

(Friday Church News Notes, April 3, 2020,, 866-295-4143) - Rocker Elton John, a prominent gay-rights activist, emceed “The iHeart Living Room Concert for America” on Sunday, March 29. Artists included Alicia Keys, the Backstreet Boys, and Mariah Carey, all performing from their homes. At 73, Elton John has this message for youth: “Just be yourself. Don’t let anybody do you down. ... I love being gay. ... If you’re unhappy at home, leave, Don’t let anybody torture you for being gay or for your sexuality. ... Be proud of who you are. There are so many wonderful diverse people in the world--straight people, gay people [and] transgender people. We’re all God’s kids. People who should know better in places of responsibility [and] attack gay people, transgender people … they claim to be close to God, [but] they couldn’t be further away from God if they tried” (“Elton John Has a Message for Struggling LGBTQ Youth,” Variety, July 5, 2019). It appears that Elton now thinks of himself as a prophet of God, since he speaks on God’s behalf. Elton’s message has been the message of the rock & roll pop culture since its inception. In the 1960s, I was captivated when the Rolling Stones sang, “I’m free to do what I want any old time,” and the Animals said amen to that with, “It’s my life and I’ll do what I want; it’s my mind and I’ll think what I want.” That philosophy resonated with me in those days, but the end of living for oneself is death, because man is not his own God. To live as one pleases is rebellion to the true God who gives us life and breath and all things (Acts 17:25). The “be what you please” message is a lot older than the 1960s, in fact. About 6,000 years ago, in a very nice garden, a serpent said, “Ye shall not surely die ... ye shall be as gods” (Ge. 3:5). It was a lie. We didn’t make ourselves and we aren’t gods and we do die.



‘This is very sad for America’

Police in Virginia are charging a smoke shop employee for shooting at masked intruders who were breaking into the store early Sunday.
33-year-old Hamzeh Abushariah was asleep in the back office of Arlington Smoke Shop when he heard loud noises at 4:30 in the morning.
With the clamor waking him, Abushariah grabbed a firearm and encountered three masked individuals inside the shop, robbing the place.
The employee fired three shots in the direction of the thieves, striking one who turned out to be a minor.
Arlington County police arrived, found the underage robber suffering from the gunshot wound and took him to the hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
The other two suspects were able to escape and have yet to be located.
To Abushariah’s surprise, he was charged with “malicious wounding, reckless handling of a firearm and violation of a protective order,” according to a statement from police.
Responding to the arrest of his employee and defending the Second Amendment, Arlington Smoke Shop owner Jowan Zuber made an appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday.
“We thought we’re in the right. Three masked men at 4:30 on a Sunday morning,” Zuber explained to Tucker. “This is very sad for America today, as American citizens practicing the Second Amendment to protect the store and the lives.”
Police reportedly asked Abushariah why he didn’t just “run out the back door” when the intruders broke in.
“This [tells] the criminals out there, hey we can rob stuff, kill people, hurt people, and guess what — people have to run out the back door,” Zuber said. “This is mind-boggling!”
Additionally, Zuber argues his employee’s health is in jeopardy due to the spread of COVID-19 in jails and prisons across the country.

Dr. Anthony S. Fauci says that the United States will not come out of lockdown until there are no “new cases” of coronavirus, prompting some to question precisely how long that will be.
During yesterday’s White House briefing, Fauci, who has become the face of America’s response to the coronavirus, was asked by a reporter whether social distancing measures will be imposed until there is a drug or vaccine to treat COVID-19.
“I think if we get to the part of the curve that Dr. Birx showed yesterday when it goes down to essentially no new cases, no new deaths at a period of time. I think it makes sense that you will have to relax social distancing,” Fauci said.
“The one thing we hopefully would have in place, and I believe we will have in place, is a much more robust system to be able to identify someone who was infected, isolate them and then do contact tracing,” he added.
The prospect of there ever being zero new coronavirus cases appears to be a very long way off, leading some to question if Fauci was asking Americans to adopt social distancing indefinitely, or at least until a vaccine is available.
“Fauci said that we can start to “relax” social distancing once there are “no new cases, no deaths.” Is it just me or is that completely batshit insane?” asked Matt Walsh. “That would keep us in a lockdown for many months or years. And if the virus becomes endemic, forever. How can that be the plan?”
Fauci said that we can start to "relax" social distancing once there are "no new cases, no deaths." Is it just me or is that completely batshit insane? That would keep us in a lockdown for many months or years. And if the virus becomes endemic, forever. How can that be the plan?
5,474 people are talking about this
“No kidding. We would need to assume that any vaccine would be immediately available, 100% effective, 100% of the population has access to it, and 100% of the population takes it,” commented another respondent.
“Sounds like they’ll eventually have to keep us “temporarily” locked in our homes. No cars on the road. No people at stores or gas stations, and the national guard will start leaving a box of food on our doorsteps every 3 days. And everyone will be ok with it,” added another.
Italy is already experiencing looting and civil unrest as a result of lockdown measures.
Experts have suggested that this could be a massive problem everywhere if authorities attempt to quarantine entire countries for too long.


US Intelligence Report Concludes China "Concealed The Extent Of The Coronavirus Outbreak"
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research 
A classified intelligence report submitted to the White House has concluded that China under reported the amount of coronavirus cases and deaths within its borders, and actively worked to conceal the severity of the outbreak.
Bloomberg News cited three officials familiar with the report, noting that:
The officials asked not to be identified because the report is secret and declined to detail its contents. But the thrust, they said, is that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake. The report was received by the White House last week, one of the officials said.
While it has been clear since January that China is lying about the virus, the western media, as well as the World Health Organization has continued to parrot Chinese state media talking points.
U.S. intel report: "China has concealed the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in its country, under-reporting both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease." I was saying this in January, while the WHO & the western media was busy amplifying Chinese fake news.
January/Early February:
China couldn't possibly be lying about the true extent of the coronavirus outbreak, could they? Surely not.
Coronavirus: It's time to shut down all flights out of Wuhan, China until we can figure out what the hell is going on.
Johns Hopkins University data suggests that China has publicly reported only about 82,000 cases and 3,300 deaths. Those figures have already been eclipsed in Italy, Spain, France and the US.
China is now rescinding lockdown orders and reopening affected areas, despite underreporting cases of coronavirus, by omitting, for weeks, asymptomatic carriers, and repeatedly revised its methodology for counting.
Already, new clusters of coronavirus outbreaks are being reported in the country.
Earlier this week, Dr. Deborah Birx, the coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, slammed China over the concealed data, proclaiming that it misled scientists on the seriousness of the outbreak.
“I think the medical community interpreted the Chinese data as that this was serious but smaller than anyone expected,” she declared. “Because I think probably we were missing a significant amount of the data.”
Dr. Birx added that she and other experts felt they were seeing an outbreak comparable to SARS when reviewing the Chinese data. However, SARS only had 8,098 cases globally and 774 deaths, numbers that now seem hopelessly out of proportion compared to the coronavirus outbreak.
In 2003, The New York Times reported that China admitted to under-reporting the total number of SARS cases.
Responding to news of the new US intelligence report, Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of China’s state-run Global Times, declared that it is an attempt to divert attention from surging deaths in American and Europe.
“To fake the casualty data, which departments will be deployed? Who will implement the plan?,” Hu said, adding “It will involve many different departments in many places to get the total numbers. If one of them is faking once, they have to fake it all the time. The risk of screwing up could be very high.”
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has continually blasted China’s “intentional disinformation campaign,” and it is clear that the latest US intelligence report on China’s subterfuge dovetails with the British government’s outlook, with scientific advisors having estimated that things could be 40 times worse in China than the communist state admits.
“There is a disgusting disinformation campaign going on and it is unacceptable,” an anonymous government source told The Daily Mail last week. “They [the Chinese government] know they have got this badly wrong and rather than owning it they are spreading lies.” the source added.
Ever since the outbreak began in December, it has been acknowledged that China has been lying about the true numbers.
A scientific study out of the University of Southampton in the UK  found that had China acted sooner to combat their coronavirus, then the further spread could have been almost entirely avoided, and it would not have become a global pandemic.
It has become clear that the first cases of the Chinese virus were reported in mid-late November and early December, with scientists even estimating that the first jump of the virus from animals to humans probably occurred in October in the city of Wuhan.
Instead of acting immediately, the Chinese government waited until January 23rd before issuing quarantine orders to the 11 million people living in Wuhan.
The communist state was also actively working to suppress and punish doctors and scientists who tried to get warnings out, and  lied to the world by claiming there was “no evidence” of human-to-human transmission.


Middle East scholar Raymond Ibrahim is finally allowed to give his speech about the true nature of Islam
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research 
Reprinted from On a 500-acre campus in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Middle East scholar Raymond Ibrahim was finally allowed to give his speech before a packed, mostly civilian audience at the U.S. Army War College’s Heritage and Education Center.  Based on his book, Sword and Scimitar -- Fourteen Centuries of War Between Islam and the West, Ibrahim covered the 7th century origins of Islam, its conflict with Christianity during the hundreds of years that followed, and revisionist attempts to deny Islam’s history of violent warfare and supremacism.
Ibrahim, a Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow with the Middle East Forum, was on the receiving end of such an attempt in June 2019, when the Council on American-Islamic Relations and other Islamists convinced the U.S. Army War College to disinvite Ibrahim from his original appearance, fallaciously accusing the son of Egyptian immigrants of being a “bigot" and “white nationalist.”
However, Ibrahim wasn’t alone. In its press release, CAIR ridiculed the War College as “an academic institution run on taxpayer funds” which was “poised to exacerbate longstanding problems such as racism and human rights violations that exist within the US military.”
Ibrahim explained that CAIR is “well aware how important it is to dominate the historic narrative.” He pointed to his reliance on primary source material and actual quotes from jihadist and Islamists to support his view that there is “a continuity between past and present; Muslim religious leaders and jihadists see Christianity as both antithetical to the Islamic world and inherently ripe for conquest or conversion.”
It took a letter signed by ten congressmen to Army War College commandant Major General John S. Kem, as well as a National Association of Scholars letter to  President Trump which included 5,000 signatories, to convince Army leaders to reinstate Ibrahim’s invitation.
When CAIR learned that Ibrahim was set to return to the Carlisle campus, it responded by once again suggesting that it suffers from an “internal problem with white supremacists and white nationalists within itranks,” while claiming that Ibrahim’s talk would “instigate hatred against Muslims.”
Undeterred by his Islamist critics, Ibrahim began his presentation by saying that “since 9/11,” it has “become popular” for media and academia to whitewash the Koran’s objectionable passages.  “They say Mohammad may have done bad things, but so did King David and Abraham,” he said. The difference, Ibrahim noted, is that the Torah acknowledges the wayward path of these leaders and advises against following them, unlike the Koran.
For argument’s sake, Ibrahim offered to “put aside what the Koran says,” and “see what Islamists have done.” Beginning with the Islamic conquests of the Middle East and North Africa, Ibrahim argued that Islamists’ consistent goal has been western submission to Islamic supremacy. This region, which is identified today as Muslim-majority, was home to more Christians than Europe in the 7th century. What remained after the Arab Muslim invasion became “the West.”  Ibrahim quoted historian Franco Cardini, who wrote that, “Repeated Muslim aggression against Europe in the 7th and 8th centuries and again in the 14th and 18th centuries was a violent midwife to Europe.”
Ibrahim referred to the late historian of Islam Bernard Lewis, who said, “We forget that for a thousand years since the advent of Islam from the 7th century to the siege of Vienna in 1683 Christian Europe was under constant threat from Islam, the double threat of conquest and conversion violently wrested from Christendom.” Ibrahim noted that modern historians often fail to acknowledge this simple truth.
He argued that Mohammad’s guidance to spread Islam was the motivation behind the Islamic conquests. The only way peace could be achieved was through acceptance of Islam by conversion, enslavement, or paying the jizya -- an enormous annual tribute which the caliphate levied on non-Muslims. 
Short of these options, a non-believer’s only recourse was to fight to the death.  He quoted what Islamist conqueror Khalid bin Walid said to a Byzantine general before the Battle of Yarmuk in 636 CE: “We Arabs are in the habit of drinking blood and we are told the Romans are the sweetest of its kind.  Where you love life, we love death.”
Unlike contemporary historians who identify the various inter-civilizational wars of this age as ethnic and nationalistic, Ibrahim emphasized that the primary sources clearly show that these ongoing battles were manifestations of jihad, inspired by Koranic scripture. He called this tendency “a historic fact that modern day historians censor.”
Ibrahim showed that modern jihadists “belonging to groups such as ISIS are well-versed in Islamic historic military jurisprudence” and the Koran and point to historical precedents to justify their violence and brutality.
At the fall of Constantinople, Sultan Mehmed II motivated his jihadists with the same instructions invoked by modern-day ISIS: “Recall the promise of our Prophet regarding fallen warriors in the Koran; the man who falls in combat will be transported bodily to Paradise [and] will dine with Mohammed in the presence of women.”  
Next, Ibrahim recounted the American experience with the Islamic Barbary pirates in 1785 and 1786 that attacked U.S. merchant ships and enslaved American sailors. In an effort to ransom the slaves, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams entered negotiations with Abdul Rahman, Tripoli’s ambassador to Britain. The American diplomats futilely explained that they “had done them no injury” and “consider all mankind our friends.”  
Abdul answered that “it was founded on the laws of their Prophet, written in the Koran that all nations not acknowledging their authority were sinners, that it is their religious right and duty to make slaves of non-believers, and all Muslims slain in battle were sure to go to paradise.” America’s conflict with Islam did not begin on 9/11. Rather, it dates back to the time of America’s Founders.
To underscore this message, Ibrahim cited Theodore Roosevelt’s 1916 book,  Fear God and Take Your Part, where the former president pointed out, “If the peoples of Europe in the 7th and 8th centuries, and on up to and including the 17th century, had not possessed a military equality with, and gradually a growing superiority over the Mohammedans who invaded Europe, Europe would at this moment be Mohammedan and the Christian religion would be exterminated."
The great English statesman Winston Churchill also criticized Islam for institutionalizing slavery. “The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman is the absolute property -- either as a child, a wife, or a concubine -- must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.”
Ibrahim rhetorically asked, if the violent history of Islam is so well-documented, “so ironclad” then “why don’t we know about it?” Older historians who studied Islam unprejudiced by political correctness reached conclusions which no longer comport to what the public is told. Conversely, modern historians get away with academic malpractice by reducing previous Islamic studies scholarship to outdated myths.
This is all part and parcel to what Ibrahim referred to as “propaganda as a form of jihad,” misinformation of which academics and groups such as CAIR are the most vociferous defenders.
Meanwhile, CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the nation’s largest terrorism finance trial and an accused Hamas supporter, engaged in “propaganda jihad ”by working to suppress Ibrahim’s historical review, a practice consistent with Islamist suppression of different religious beliefs.
In the end, Ibrahim gave Army service members and the community a coherent and fact-driven presentation of Islamic history that everyone in America should hear, one that  dispels the many false, politically correct notions about the nature of Islam.  It lays bare the inconvenient truth that Islamic ideology is what motivates Muslim jihadists to perpetrate acts of terrorism against non-believers, both domestically and abroad.

The world has been sent reeling by the Coronavirus pandemic that has yet to run its course.
However, even though this deadly pandemic is still ongoing, it is not too soon to take stock of a number of critical issues.  In point of fact, it is probably best to begin this process before the pandemic ends and the public permits this global crisis to fade from their minds as it fades from the news reports.
To begin with, as I noted in my previous article, Because of the Coronavirus, Borders Suddenly Matter.  For all of the bogus slanderous claims hurled by the radical Left in the media and politics, securing borders against those infected with a dangerous virus is not a matter of racism and xenophobia - but survival.
Unlike most politicians, President Trump has the chutzpah to call things as he sees them.  This, by itself, is enough to traumatize the Left.  Trump has come to refer to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) by the term “China Virus,” sending many “journalists” into paroxysms of rage and disgust, claiming that referring to this virus that, in point of fact, originated in China, demonstrates that Trump is a racist.
Time for a reality check.
Various illnesses have traditionally been named for the locations where the diseases originated.  The devastating Spanish Flu of 1918 was so-named because, it originated in Spain.
In 1972, at the beginning of my career with the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service), I became infected with a very serious illness that was referred to as the London Flu.  I was an Immigration Inspector at JFK International Airport at the time and consequently was exposed to a variety of pathogens brought to the United States by foreign visitors.  I wound up in the hospital and nearly died, my fever maxed at more than 105 degrees.  Some of my colleagues were similarly sickened by this particularly virulent illness.
The doctors and nurses who treated me all referred to my illness as the London Flu.  I doubt that they disliked Brits or Londoners.
Clearly the mainstream media and the radical Left despise the President and on a nearly daily basis demonstrate an irrational response to virtually everything he does and says.
But could it be that their extreme abhorrence of the term “China Virus” has a more deep-seated origin?  Perhaps it goes back to how they were educated in American colleges.
When misleading terms are used, such as the term “immigrant” instead of “alien” most write this off as being Politically Correct.  In reality this is nothing short of Orwellian Newspeak and it must always be described as such.
Today. as we will see, many of Ameria’s premier universities are under the influence of the Chinese government and other governments that are hostile to the United States.
Chinese Aggression Against the U.S.A. manifests itself in many ways, especially through widespread espionage.
The Communist, totalitarian Chinese regime is extremely sensitive to the way that they are perceived around the world.  They have infiltrated many universities around the United States for a number of significant purposes that include having their scientists, engineers, computer programmers and other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) professionals trained in the United States, and maintaining strict control over those students when they are in the United States.
Many Chinese students are coerced in spying on the United States when they secure “Optional Practical Training” by working for American companies.
It has been recently alleged by the U.S. Department of Education that China and other countries have been allegedly pouring billions of dollars into American Universities that went unreported by those universities, in violation of U.S. laws.
On February 12, 2020 the Department of Education (DOE) issued a press release:  U.S. Department of Education Launches Investigation into Foreign Gifts Reporting at Ivy League Universities that included this subtitle:
Since July, the Department has uncovered more than $6 billion in unreported foreign gifts from countries including Qatar, China, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.
The DOE press release also included these excerpts:
The Department is also concerned Harvard University may lack appropriate institutional controls over foreign money and has failed to report fully all foreign gifts and contracts as required by law. This comes after Dr. Charles Lieber, chair of Harvard University’s Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department, was indicted for lying about his involvement with the Chinese government’s Thousand Talents Plan and admitting that Harvard lacks adequate institutional controls for effective oversight and tracking of very large donations.
*          *          *
The Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations described foreign spending on U.S. schools as “a black hole” because colleges and universities “routinely” fail to comply with the law, and reported foreign money can come with strings attached that might compromise academic freedom.
*          *          *
Additional Information on the Department’s Section 117 Enforcement Actions:
  • Since July 1, 2019, the Department’s enforcement efforts have triggered the reporting of approximately $6.5 billion in previously undisclosed foreign money.  
  • Ten schools, including Cornell University, Yale University, the University of Colorado Boulder, the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Chicago, the University of Pennsylvania, Boston University, Texas A&M University, and Carnegie Mellon University reported approximately $3.6 billion in previously unreported foreign gifts.  
  • The Department has opened eight civil compliance investigations since June 28, 2019.  
  • The Department has reported its preliminary findings to Congress including:  
  • The largest colleges and universities are multi-billion dollar, multi-national enterprises using opaque foundations, foreign campuses, and other sophisticated legal structures to generate revenue that is intermingled with domestic sources of funding from tuition, grants, and the like.  
  • These colleges and universities actively solicit foreign governments, corporations, and nationals for funds although some donors are known to be hostile to the United States and may be seeking to project “soft power,” steal sensitive and proprietary research and development data and other intellectual property, and spread propaganda benefitting foreign governments.
At the beginning of the onslaught of the Coronavirus, President Trump quickly decided to bar the entry of nonimmigrant aliens from China to prevent the spread of the virus into the United States, invoking 8 U.S. Code § 1182(f), a section of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) that he previously used to prevent the entry of aliens from countries associated with international terrorism and where our officials were unable to effectively vet those who sought entry into the United States.
As the disease spread through Europe, especially Italy, the President expanded the list of countries whose nonimmigrant citizens would be barred from entering the United States to try to slow the spread of the disease.
The Democrats, led by Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and the other “usual suspects,” attacked the President for being a racist and xenophobe.  They should have used a different term, “Leader!”
Now many other countries around the world have taken similar measures.  Dr. Anthony Fauci lauded Trump’s important decision stating that this single act, of closing our nation’s borders, has been one of the most effective measures take by Trump to help save lives in America.
For decades China has run roughshod over America. 
Out of extreme corporate greed, the production of our essential pharmaceuticals has been shipped to China and other countries that do not have our best interests at heart, leaving America vulnerable.  China has now threatened to stop the flow of vital antibiotics to the United States and has actually accused the U.S. Army of planting the Coronavirus in China!
President Trump is the first president, in decades, to stand up to this Communist dictatorship that openly boasts it plans to dominate the world.  Trumps actions have undoubtedly done much more than just ruffle some feathers in Beijing. 
President Trump has gone on the offensive in his strategies to protect America and Americans.
Our nation has been rendered vulnerable to one of Americas most dangerous adversaries by corporations that seek cheap labor and no regulations and have moved production of vital supplies to China and other countries.  To be able to do this, the corporations have pumped huge amounts of cash into the campaign coffers of politicians who need the money to win their elections.  Not unlike prostitutes they will apparently do whatever it takes to satisfy their donors.
As I noted, in part, in a speech I gave in Washington several years ago:
The practitioners of the two oldest professions will assume any position, no matter how dangerous, ridiculous, uncomfortable or contrary to commonsense - for the right price!
The time has come to finally clean out the bordellos!
