GOP senator warns China is now ‘encroaching’ upon US soil~China Paying Cuba $Billions For Spy Facility

Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, weighs in on the GOP's 2024 presidential candidates and the rising economic and military threats from China.

According to well-informed U.S. officials with access to highly classified intelligence, China and Cuba have reportedly reached a clandestine accord. Under this agreement, China plans to establish a covert electronic surveillance center on the island, posing a bold new geopolitical challenge to the United States.

This facility, which is approximately 100 miles off the coast of Florida, would grant Chinese intelligence agencies the capability to intercept electronic communications across the southeastern region of the United States, which houses numerous military installations, as well as monitor U.S. maritime traffic.

Sources familiar with the situation reveal that China has agreed to provide financial assistance amounting to several billion dollars to financially strained Cuba in exchange for permission to construct the eavesdropping facility. While the exact terms of the agreement are yet to be finalized, the two nations have reportedly reached an agreement in principle.

“The revelation about the planned site has sparked alarm within the Biden administration because of Cuba’s proximity to the U.S. mainland,” the Wall Street Journal reports. “Washington regards Beijing as its most significant economic and military rival. A Chinese base with advanced military and intelligence capabilities in the U.S.’s backyard could be an unprecedented new threat.”

The Biden Administration’s response gives us little comfort.

“While I cannot speak to this specific report, we are well aware of—and have spoken many times to—the People’s Republic of China’s efforts to invest in infrastructure around the world that may have military purposes, including in this hemisphere,” said John Kirby, spokesman for the National Security Council. “We monitor it closely, take steps to counter it, and remain confident that we are able to meet all our security commitments at home, in the region, and around the world.”

Does anyone expect the Biden Administration to take any meaningful “steps to counter” this move by China? This is the same administration, after all, that was far more concerned about not offending China than our national security during the spy balloon scandal in February. Three unidentified Biden administration officials revealed that the Chinese spy balloon was allowed to fly over the United States for an entire week and was able to acquire and send secret intelligence to Beijing regarding a number of military bases in “real-time.”

Joe Biden’s close ties with China have been a matter of concern for years. Despite the passage of three years since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, China has yet to face any substantial accountability for its role in the crisis. Nor has it faced any accountability for the spy balloon incident, and that lack of consequence may have emboldened it to take this egregious step toward establishing a surveillance facility just a short distance from the U.S. mainland. The Biden administration is far more concerned about improving relations with China, even at the expense of U.S. national security.

Pride Month and Why Schools Are Sexualizing Children And what parents must do.



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Our son was verbal as a toddler and still is today at 34.  He hit the “why” stage at about 3 ½ – you know, when a young child learns something new and then they want to know why.   But he didn’t just ask why once. When he got the first answer, it was followed by another why, and another, and sometimes another. It was exhausting for Mom but a welcome sign of his intelligence at the same time.

Speaking of asking why, since it is “Pride Month,” why not stop and ask why our kids are being hypersexualized at school?  We have experienced a cultural revolution over the last three years with the ferocious expansion of the trans and gender ideology agenda, particularly in K-12 public schools.

So, why have public schools taken on this dramatic, life-changing, social, and sexual mission to lure children away from their biological identity as male or female without parental involvement?  Surely this isn’t just the latest fad or societal craze.  There must be an underlying mission.

Let’s look at how this whirlwind has made its way into classrooms and bathrooms at the expense of reading, writing, and arithmetic, along with tossing a needed focus on accurate history, social studies, and science out the school window.   We must dig deep for this answer, carry it forward and then expose and stop those who have political and financial agendas to match it.

A partial answer to that started in 1980 with the founding of the Human Rights Campaign.  By the 1990s HRC was lobbying and ensuring donations were made to Democrats and Republicans alike. Their goal was to normalize LGBTQ resulting in gay marriage. With that, an aura was created that LGBTQ is a protected class, which laid the foundation for where we are today culturally.

Fast forward to 2021, why did President Biden sign an executive order on day one in support of protecting transgenderism in schools, and why would the White House create a Toolkit on Transgender Equality.  These actions are supported now by the US Department of Ed’s policies and ongoing communications to promote transgenderism in schools, including praising Pride Month.

We also must ask why LGBTQ groups like Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, Learning for Justice, Gender Spectrum, Advocates for Youth, Planned Parenthood, and Gay–Straight Alliance, along with educational groups such as CASEL and Panorama Education Inc., are flooding classrooms and burdening teachers with LGBTQ oriented curricula and profiting from it.

Through these materials, young children are being targeted with this agenda and being transmuted into something other than whom they were born to be at school.  Why?

Some scholars say we could go back thousands of years, but a look at Hungarian Marxist Gyorgy Lukács, deputy commissar of education in the Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919, and founder of Western and cultural Marxism, is a good place to start.  Lukács called for the sexualization of children in schools to separate them from their families and their religion. Lukács knew it was essential to destabilize the family unit and shift culture by separating children from their families to achieve his goal of building a Marxist society. As a result, the state captured the allegiance of the next generation, transforming them into activists for the Marxist cause.

So here we are 100 years later, already sliding toward socialistic/Marxist governance in America. And what begins to rise with lightning speed since the new administration took power in 2020?  Drag queen shows, and dozens of LGBTQ books with sordid tales and pornographic pictures are constantly being used by teachers who employ the power of suggestion around pronouns, create secret gender plans, and offer gender transition hormones and surgical therapies, all without parental notice or consent.  Why don’t schools want to notify you as a parent? Because they want to separate your children from you – that’s why.

Parents, you must insist that these Marxist crusaders stand down.  Parents and educators must stand strong for the next generation with courage and clarity.  We must protect children from the profound familial, emotional, and psychological harm that has proven to follow sexualization in youth.  Not to mention the separation from you that is underway.

We were naturally created for family and designed to be who we were born to be.  The social and sexual manipulation of children is bad for kids, damaging to families, and destructive to our free society.

Is China the Cause Of The Canadian Wildfires?

Smoke From Canada Fires Darkens New York Sky And Activates Alert For ...

Canada wildfire smoke prompts air quality advisories for millions - CBS ...


We are in one of the purple zones, with severe smoke, and orange sun. The last two days I had some chest pain on the left side. The first day I drove to Harbor Freight to get a garden sprayer, coughing all the way, even with the air conditioner on. Today, the pain has disappeared, thank God. We are NOT going outside until this blows away. They expect the smoke to stop in a north-to-south direction, changing to a west-to-southwest direction. My guess is the Chinese set these wildfires in British Columbia, Quebec, and other areas of Canada, using the weather data from their "balloons". Biden and his followers have remained silent. The news is also very careful not to make the connection to China.


Leftist Magazine Wants You to Ignore Jihad Terrorism and Love Islam



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

And, of course, despise Christianity.

Two recent articles in the far-Left New Lines Magazine has illustrated yet again the Left’s fascination with Islam and disdain for Christianity. In Islam, Leftists have found a religion that coalesces nicely with their authoritarian agenda; the Judeo-Christian tradition, however, gave the world its notions of universal human dignity and individual rights, and so as far as Leftists are concerned, it must be destroyed.

All that New Lines really offers up are old lines; it is a doctrinaire Leftist publication, reflecting the political and media establishment line on everything. One recent article warns: “Abortion Access Under Threat.” A New Lines podcast discusses “War on a Warming Planet.” New Lines’ founder and editor-in-chief is Hassan Hassan, who has written for a lengthy list of far-Left propaganda sites, including The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Guardian and Foreign Affairs.

As New Lines’ publisher and most of its staff appear to be Muslim, and Hassan’s most recent article for his own publication is “Yusuf al-Qaradawi Leaves Behind a Complex Legacy,” offering qualified praise for a genocidal antisemite who praised Hitler (Hassan doesn’t mention any of that), New Lines’ pro-Islam bias is not surprising. However, even if there were no Muslims on New Lines’ staff at all, its editorial line, including its stance on Islam, would fit well within the contemporary Leftist mainstream.

On Friday, New Lines published an article entitled “How Islam Inspired the Music of the Late Jazz Legend Ahmad Jamal,” by Nathan Lean, a longtime purveyor of the Leftist propaganda fiction of “Islamophobia,” the claim that opponents of jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women are really engaged in irrational, race-based prejudice and bigotry that must be eliminated from the public discourse, with those opponents vilified, shamed, stigmatized, and silenced.

Although he has been more muted in recent years, Lean was for a considerable period one of the most vicious and hateful exponents of this vilification, as well as an open and unapologetic advocate for the destruction of the freedom of speech and the forcible silencing of foes of jihad terror. New Lines is ill-advised to publish a hate-filled thug such as Lean, but of course the Left’s hypocrisy in this regard is boundless, and unlike the Right, the Left never toes the opposition’s line and throws its own people under the bus, no matter what they do. As Lean’s burning hatred for critics of jihad violence is mainstream on the Left, he has a bright future.

It is well known that many jazz greats were converts to Islam, including Art Blakey, Pharoah Sanders, McCoy Tyner, Yusef Lateef, and numerous others. In New Lines, however, Lean goes much farther than simply noting this as a social phenomenon; he wants us to know that what made jazz great is Islam itself, hailing “the sacred influence that turned an edgy genre of music into a celebrated and storied art form.” Lean quotes Cannonball Adderley saying that Islam “must have something to do” with the calm heart of Jamal’s music; Adderly added: “He lives that way. He seems to be always at peace.” Lean calls upon readers to “heed the simple advice” that Jamal “once gave when asked about his conversion to Islam: ‘Listen to my music. The answer is there.’” Lean adds: “In the steady grooves. In the hushed passages. In the rises and falls. And in the clean-as-a-whistle, no-frills kind of playing that made him a pioneer.”

The unwritten subtext of Lean’s piece is that the filthy “Islamophobes” have wrongly tarred Islam for the sins of the jihad terrorists, impugning upstanding and heroic artists such as Ahmad Jamal. This, however, is also a Leftist fiction, as the principal opponents of jihad terror and Sharia oppression never denied the existence of peaceful Muslims, much less of Muslim jazz greats. The idea that articles such as Lean’s about Jamal have to be written or published at all is based on the Leftist claim that opposition to jihad is really just prejudice, so that if non-Muslims come to see that Muslims can be great men and innovative artists such as Ahmad Jamal, their hatred will dissipate. This is a false premise. Opposition to ISIS and al-Qaeda and the rest was never about Ahmad Jamal and his colleagues; it was Lean and his fellow propagandists who did their best to obscure the necessary distinctions in order to defame the Islamocritics.

In stark contrast to all this, New Lines on May 18 published a reminiscence by a Catholic who grew up in Yugoslavia, Ana Sekulić. Sekulić returns to the church she attended as a child in Istria, where, she says, she once looked at the other people in the congregation and wondered “why God chose to speak to them and not me.” Now, Sekulić notices graffiti on the backs of the pews and realizes that she “wasn’t the only one bored and confused.” She adds: “The church struck me as chipped, perhaps even a little cheap.”

Would New Lines ever publish an article in which a former Muslim writes about not experiencing Allah in the mosque, but rather being bored and confused, and revisiting the mosque years later to find that it looked “cheap”? Of course not. Would it ever publish an article that rhapsodized about the Christian influence upon, say, Bach, Beethoven and Mozart? Once again, the answer is obvious. New Lines feels free to denigrate Christianity but would never dare publish the slightest negative word about Islam. That’s what makes it a mainstream Leftist publication.

The Left and Islam are deep ideological kin. They both envision establishing an earthly paradise: the dictatorship of the proletariat on the one hand, and the hegemony of Sharia on the other. Both are enforced by violence and terror against those who dare to step out of line. That’s why the Leftist/Islamic alliance is so close, and why, despite some recent Muslim protests against the trans madness being forced upon primary school children, it is likely to endure.

Insane: Biden’s Handlers STILL Want to Make a Deal With the Iranian Mullahs

Insane: Biden’s Handlers STILL Want to Make a Deal With the Iranian Mullahs



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on Monday and offered his best impersonation of a man with some spine and integrity. Blinken declared in no uncertain terms that the Biden regime would never, ever allow the Islamic Republic of Iran to get a nuclear weapon. Anyone who might have been inclined to take his words to heart, however, should take careful note of the fact that, even after Iran was wracked with nationwide protests that the mullahs only ended with the bloodiest of crackdowns, Biden’s handlers still want to make a deal with them. Is there any wrongheaded, counterproductive, anti-American idea that they will not pursue?

Algemeiner reported Monday, “[Blinken said] that the United states would use all means to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.” The hard-Left foreign policy insider and longtime pal of Hunter Biden thundered, “There is no danger that Israel faces that is greater than the one posed by the Iranian regime. That regime routinely threatens to wipe Israel off the map. It continues to provide weapons to terrorists and proxies like Hezbollah and Hamas, who reject Israel’s right to exist.” All right, Blinken. But what are you going to do about it?

Nothing good, of course: “[Blinken said] that the Biden administration continues to believe that a diplomatic solution would be the best way to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, but said that if Iran rejects the path of diplomacy that ‘all options are on the table.’” He claimed that the Biden regime’s “‘three-pronged approach’ of diplomacy, economic pressure, and military deterrence has bi-partisan support, and that this year the US and Israel will hold more joint military exercises than ever before.” Gee, that’s swell, but what is this obsession with making a deal with the mullahs? The Iranian regime admits that it violated the terms of the Obama nuclear deal; why do Blinken and his henchmen think it will abide by the terms of a new deal?

The former Israeli ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, was more realistic, saying that a new U.S. deal with Iran would be “a historic mistake and a disaster for generations to come.” He added, “It is not possible or logical to sign an agreement with a murderous terrorist state whose aim is to destroy Israel and the US. Iran’s dangerous nuclear project can only be shut down with crippling sanctions and a credible military threat.” Iran aims to destroy Israel and the United States? Oh yes. Danon was quite right.

Back in March, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) asked Biden regime Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, “How many attacks has Iran or its proxies launched against American positions in Iran [sic: he meant Iraq] and Syria, uh, since Joe Biden took office?” Austin responded, “There’s been, uh, about 83 attacks, I think, uh, since, uh, in the last several years.” That’s right. 83 attacks from Iran on U.S. positions.

And that was by no means all. Iran has been threatening the U.S. throughout the Biden “presidency.” According to a July 2022 report from the dissident news outlet Iran International, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps boasted that it would soon have the ability to transform New York into “hellish ruins.” Back in January 2022, the website of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, released a video showing the assassination of Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the golf course at Mar-a-Lago. This came amid a barrage of threats against Trump for the killing of Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani in Jan. 2020.

Then, in late Feb. 2023, Fox News reported that Iran had renewed its threats against Trump and Pompeo and even stated them in Islamic religious terms. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps aerospace force, declared, “God willing, we are looking to kill Trump [and] Pompeo… and military commanders who issued the order should be killed.” Now, Old Joe Biden and his handlers might be delighted if the Iranians managed to do such a thing, but that doesn’t make the Islamic Republic of Iran any less of a hostile power. The idea of concluding a deal with such a power could only be entertained among people who are either terminally naïve and not very bright, or who want to see the United States decline in power and influence and its people become more vulnerable to attack.

So is Blinken stupid, or is he evil? And in the final analysis, does it even matter into which category he falls?

Parents Rights Groups Become the Next Target of SPLC’s ‘Hate Group’ Tag

Parents Rights Groups Become the Next Target of SPLC's 'Hate Group' Tag



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has been laying low for the last few years after a horrific series of scandals involving the founder, Morris Dees. Dees was apparently something of a tyrant, and allegations of sexual harassment and racial discrimination roiled the organization. The irony of a group purporting to be at war with “racist” groups being accused of racism was lost on the left as the cone of silence descended over the story.

The infamous SPLC ‘Hate Map” showing where all the groups they claim are “hate groups” are headquartered was a little late this year. The Center for Immigration Studies was still there, along with other conservative groups like Alliance Defending Freedom, Center for Security Policy, and Family Research Council. ADF’s “hate crime” was in defending businesses that exercise religious freedom by not using their talents to help gay couples get married.

Needless to say, there isn’t much “hate” coming from these groups — except perhaps for the SPLC and their efforts to fundraise off their exaggerated war on “hate.”

So with a need for more targets to fundraise against, the SPLC decided to go after moms. The group Moms For Liberty and other parental rights groups have been put on the SPLC’s “hate group” list. If you wish for a more tangible way to express your gratitude to SPLC for their fine work in defending America from “ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties and things that go bump in the night,” you may donate here.

“These groups were, in part, spurred by the right-wing backlash to COVID-19 public safety measures in schools,” the SPLC report says. “But they have grown into an anti-student inclusion movement that targets any inclusive curriculum that contains discussions of race, discrimination and LGBTQ identities.”

“At the forefront of this mobilization is Moms for Liberty, a Florida-based group with vast connections to the GOP that this year the SPLC designated as an extremist group,” the report notes. “They can be spotted at school board meetings across the country wearing shirts and carrying signs that declare, ‘We do NOT CO-PARENT with the GOVERNMENT.’”

Omigod SPLC. Save us! We’re not worthy!

Daily Signal:

The SPLC report does not once mention the Left’s aggressive promotion of sexualized material for children in schools and at other venues. It does not mention the “Drag Queen Story Hour” movement or the fact that many of the books which parents demand removed from school libraries include pornographic content. It does not mention how many on the Left champion the idea that children should be able to identify with a gender opposite their biological sex, hide that identity from their parents, and even obtain life-altering drugs without parental consent. Instead, it acts as though the parental rights movement emerged in a vacuum, or worse, is motivated by hatred.

“Hate and antigovernment groups make up the extreme edge of America’s hard right, an inherently antidemocratic movement that rejects pluralism and equity,” the SPLC report states. “The movement instead strives to build a society dominated by hierarchy, where people whom far rightists deem lesser or threatening—women, Black and Brown people, LGBTQ people, non-Christians and others—are socially and politically subjugated”

Is anyone dumb enough to believe that? To place Moms For Liberty in the same class as the Klu Klux Klan is laughably absurd, as former PJ Media editor Tyler O’Neil points out.

SPLC has seen, for the first time, a defamation lawsuit against it reach the discovery stage. They picked on a small immigration organization, declaring the Dustin Inman Society a hate group. But the SPLC was sloppy, and a judge ruled the suit could continue through discovery. As Mark Krikorian points out, this is a huge deal.


No one has ever gotten a look at SPLC’s internal machinations, and staff communications and other files regarding the plaintiffs could well turn over rocks that SPLC would prefer to keep in place.

But discovery can be expensive — masses of emails and other documents to go through, opposing counsel obstructing at every turn — I shudder to think of the cost.

The SPLC has lost a lot of credibility. But they remain a radical left icon and will continue to use exaggeration and hysteria to drum up funds for their efforts.

Former FBI Agent Calls for More Domestic Terror Laws Against… Guess Who?

Watch: Former FBI Agent Calls for More Domestic Terror Laws Against... Guess Who?

The news had barely broken that the Southern Poverty Law Center has added such radical, violent extremist groups like Moms for Liberty to its ever-growing list of hate groups when an ex-FBI agent made an appearance on MSNBC to add fuel to the progressive fire. The Daily Caller News Foundation has the video of the interview between MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace and former agent Frank Figliuzzi.

I don’t know if Figliuzzi’s retirement is somehow in jeopardy or if he has a book coming out. Perhaps he was asked by someone at the DOJ to add his two cents. Or it may be that he is your standard-issue left-wing narcissist who could not resist the siren song of virtue signaling. You would think that at this stage in life, Figliuzzi has a house, a boat, or a set of golf clubs or something. I know many retirees enjoy classic cars. Theoretically, this should be the time for him to kick back and enjoy that sweet, taxpayer-funded pension. I don’t know what Figliuzzi’s motivation is, but I suspect this may not have entirely been his idea. Whether it was his idea or not, the words were his. And he made it clear that more federal laws were needed to combat the people who don’t want their children sexualized, radicalized, or guilt-ridden.

According to the Daily Signal, SPLC’s additions include:

230 chapters of Moms for Liberty, No Left Turn in Education (based in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania), 12 chapters of Parental Rights in Education, and many state-based chapters of Parents Involved in Education.

Also making the list of SPLC’s antigovernment extremist groups are the Virginia-based  Parents Against Critical Race Theory, Parents Defending Education, Virginia Moms for America, and Virginia Parents Involved in Education. SPLC’s Maya Henson Carey has referred to these groups, and others like them, as “Uptown Klans.” Of course, they are all extremist hate groups. We know this because “extremism” and “hate” mean whatever the Inner Party of Oceania says they mean at any given moment. Those words could refer to an actual violent militia group if many of those still exist. But they are equally and enthusiastically applied to moms who only want their kids to have uncluttered childhoods and receive decent educations.

You may recall that when the news broke that the FBI was trying to infiltrate the Catholic Church and keeping an eye on “Trad Catholics,” one former agent remarked that just a few years prior, the Southern Poverty Law Center wasn’t even considered a legitimate source when it came to identifying domestic threats. But to butcher an old saying, when all you want to see are nails, everything becomes a hammer.
