A Florida diner recently posted a sign asking Biden voters to take their business elsewhere.

The warning reads, “If you voted for and continue to support and stand behind the worthless, inept and corrupt administration currently inhabiting the White House that is complicit in the death of our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please take your business elsewhere. God bless America and God bless our soldiers.”

DeBary Diner owner Angie Ugarte said she posted the sign because she felt like it was the only thing she could do to protest Biden’s disastrous handling of Afghanistan.

Fox reports that the sign has caused a massive business boom for the diner.

The DeBary Diner, located in DeBary, Florida and owned by Angie Ugarte, was closed on September 2 after running out of food following a surge in demand after a sign was posted on the front door slamming Biden’s chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal and telling his supporters to take their business somewhere else, according to the West Volusia Beacon.

(edit)

“I’ve gotten so many people calling me from all over the world, from Europe, trying to purchase meals for veterans, which I still haven’t been able to organize,” Ugarte told the Daytona Beach News-Journal. “I think that the veterans will be fed for the rest of the year at the rate I’m getting donations.”

She says veterans are making a point to stop by and dine at her restaurant. If I was in Florida, I’d do the same.

At least Joe Biden has managed to help one business do well. Other than this diner and the gun industry, Biden’s impact on the economy is disastrous and his excuses for that just don’t add up. Joe Biden has the anti-Midas touch: Everything he touches turns to crap.

Huawei's CEO Responds to Accusations of Espionage 

Ren Zhengfei, Founder and CEO of Huawei denies spying for the Chinese government and explains why he thinks criticisms from the U.S. government is good publicity for his company.

The federal government under Joe Biden is allowing Huawei, the blacklisted Chinese telecom monolith, to enter the American auto industry by giving the company licenses to buy automotive chips.

Officials at the Department of Commerce gave applications worth hundreds of millions of dollars to Huawei in order to purchase the chips for its auto business, Reuters reported. This is in contrast to the Trump administration, which in August 2020 placed restrictions on Huawei, limiting its ability to purchase chips in the U.S. The Trump administration did so out of national-security concerns.

“We don’t want their equipment in the United States because they spy on us,” President Trump said at the time. “And any country that uses it, we’re not going to do anything in terms of sharing intelligence.” The Trump White House had previously banned vendors worldwide from using U.S. technology to produce components for Huawei.

According to Trump, Huawei provided the communist Chinese with the means with which to spy on America.

A spokesman for Biden’s Department of Commerce would not confirm nor deny a change in licensing restrictions for Huawei. Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for Huawei indicated that the company intends to move into the auto-manufacturing industry, which would potentially allow it to circumvent American sanctions.

Representative Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee, called Huawei’s entrance into the auto industry “alarming but unsurprising.”

“Is there a dictator or despot that this administration won’t surrender to, appease, or enrich?” Rogers asked. “I urge the administration to immediately reverse this decision before further harm is done to U.S. national security.”

As the Washington Free Beacon reported in June, Biden selected (and the Senate confirmed) Chris Fonzone, a lawyer who worked as a lobbyist for Huawei, as the top lawyer in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

The outlet noted that “In 2019, Huawei hired Fonzone’s firm, Sidley Austin LLP, to assist in navigating the Trump administration’s crackdown on the company for its ties to the Chinese regime and military. In June 2020 the Pentagon determined that Huawei is primarily backed by the Chinese military.”

But the Chinese links run all the way to the top. Bill Burns, the current CIA director put in place by Biden, has a long history of working with Chinese communist front groups.

Burns has been at the head of the Carnegie think tank since 2014, overseeing its association with the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) — an association that goes back to at least 2009.

CUSEF is an important part of the CCP’s United Front effort to “co-opt and neutralize sources of potential opposition” and encourage foreign actors to “adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies.” To that end, CUSEF has sponsored trips for Chinese Communist Party officials to speak at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Melanie Hart, who now serves in the Biden administration as China policy coordinator to the undersecretary of state for economic growth, energy, and the environment, has taken part in programs and written reports that were sponsored by one of China’s top propaganda organizations.

Not surprisingly, Hart’s role in the Biden White House has involved overseeing a review of Trump administration policies, including a focus on the Trump team’s “Clean Network” Initiative, which encouraged countries to block Huawei.

The Biden government’s ties to China run deep. Earlier this year, it took on more than 10 staffers from an advisory firm, Albright Stonebridge Group, that’s now partnered with China’s largest law firm.

The Biden family, of course, has had its business interests wrapped up in China. Joe Biden himself reportedly held as much as a 10-percent ownership stake in the now-defunct CEFC China Energy.

During the Obama administration, Joe Biden gutted American coal with strict regulations. As a candidate, he talked of “getting rid of fossil fuels” and even told miners to “learn to code.” Yet his son, Hunter, invested millions of dollars in Chinese coal.

China has been working hard to infiltrate Western governments and corporations. A leaked document identifying almost two million CCP operatives reveals that over 120 members of the Chinese Communist Party were employed by vaccine giants Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and GlaxoSmithKline. Chinese communist loyalists are also deeply embedded in military roles and in academia.

Biden Lifts Sanctions on Venezuela, As Maduro and ally Communist Cuba crack down on democratic protesters

BY LLOYD BILLINGSLEY

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/07/biden-lifts-sanctions-venezuela-lloyd-billingsley/;

“The U.S. Department of the Treasury on Monday lifted sanctions on the export of gas to socialist Venezuela,” Breitbart reported on Tuesday, “a boon to the dictatorship in Caracas and its patron government in communist Cuba, which struggles to suppress mounting opposition and calls for the regime’s total abolition.” The lifting of sanctions is significant because “Caracas has further served as an economic lifeline for Havana, supplying much of the regime’s energy needs on credit, with extremely lenient terms.”

As the U.S. announced the lifting of sanctions, the Miami Herald reported, Venezuela’s Maduro regime surrounded the home of opposition leader Juan Guaidó and arrested his former deputy Freddy Guevara. The U.S. move took the establishment media by surprise.

“The Biden Administration is also maintaining its predecessor Donald Trump’s confrontational stance on Venezuela and China, two of Cuba's closest allies,” Newsweek reported Tuesday, in a piece headlined, “Joe Biden Wounds Cuba, Venezuela and China's Hopes of Obama-style Détente.” Back in February, Reuters reported that Biden was in “no rush” to lift sanctions on Venezuela but would consider easing them if Maduro showed he was ready to negotiate with the opposition.

Maduro did no such thing, and cracked down on the opposition even as the sanctions were lifted. Protesters in Caracas and Havana had grounds to believe the move aligned the United States with Cuban and Venezuelan regimes, and against those now suffering repression. Biden’s belated statement on the Cuban protesters, for example, was hardly “full-throated,” as Newsweek claimed.

“We stand with the Cuban people and their clarion call for freedom and relief from the tragic grip of the pandemic,” the White House statement said, “and from the decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime.” So the protest is primarily about the pandemic and an openly Communist regime is only “authoritarian.” Contrast Biden with Bernie Sanders during the 2020 primaries. “We’re very very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba,” the Vermont socialist said, “ but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad.”

Cuban protesters bore signs denouncing la dictadura, but Biden would not say “dictatorship,” or “totalitarian,” much less “Communist.” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Biden press secretary Jen Psaki if Cubans wanted to leave because “they don’t like Communism.” Psaki said Cubans were “opposed to the oppression, to the mismanagement of the government in the country.” 

In similar style on Tuesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told reporters “Cubans were “tired of the mismanagement of the Cuban economy, tired of the lack of adequate food and, of course, an adequate response to the Covid-19 pandemic.”

On Tuesday Biden’s Department of Homeland Security boss Alejandro Mayorkas told Cubans “if you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States.” If individuals establish “a well-founded fear of persecution or torture, they are referred to third countries for resettlement. They will not enter the United States.”  As embattled Cubans might note, that marks a stark contrast to Biden’s open-border policy with “migrants” from anywhere else in the world.

“Freedom Floats: Cubans Risking Death to Cross Straits on ‘Chugs,’” headlines a July 2 report in Keysweekly. Since October, the U.S. Coast Guard has interdicted 512 Cubans. If the fleeing Cubans are intercepted “they are held at an undisclosed location and returned in groups to the island nation.” Flight from the Communist nation is not a new development.

According to the Library of Congress, “In the 1980s and 1990s, tens of thousands of hopeful emigrants attempted to flee by sea, chancing death by drowning, exposure, or shark attacks to make the 90-mile crossing. Many thousands rode only on flimsy, dangerous, homemade vessels, including inner tubes, converted cars, and cheap plywood rafts, or balsos. Hundreds of the balseros died on the journey.” For other accounts of the exodus see the Washington Post, from 1991, and a 2014 report in the New York Times.

As these and many other reports confirm, Cuba is so repressive that Cubans of all ages will flee the Communist dictadura in virtually anything that floats, risking their lives and leaving loved ones behind. Cuba was a Soviet colony but after the demise of the USSR, Venezuela became Cuba’s primary supporter. Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro transformed a prosperous nation into a socialist basket case, but the regime still propped up the Cuban dictadura. Biden’s lifting of sanctions will reinforce that support.

Maduro regards Juan Guaidó as a U.S. puppet, the role Joe Biden plays for the composite character David Garrow described in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama.  His beloved Frank Marshall Davis, who got more than 2,000 words in Dreams from My Father, was an African American Communist who spent most of his life defending an all-white Soviet dictatorship. In similar style, the composite character president put time back on the clock for Cuba’s all-white Communist dictadura, headed for decades by white Sado-Stalinist Fidel Castro.

The composite character is a big fan of Black Lives Matter, and according to BLM Cuba is being “punished by the U.S. government because the country has maintained its commitment to sovereignty and self-determination.” A BLM statement blames the USA for Cuba’s problems and praises the regime for protecting “Black revolutionaries like Assata Shakur,” a reference to cop-killer JoAnne Chesimard, given asylum by Fidel Castro.

Joe Biden is such a fan of Black Lives Matter that he allows U.S. embassies to display BLM flags and banners.  Maybe the Delaware Democrat thinks Cubans “ain’t black,” if they don’t like their “authoritarian” government that mismanages the economy. If Cubans thought the addled Joe Biden was a friend of the Communist dictadura and an enemy of the Cuban people it would be hard to blame them.

America’s Frontline Doctors: Door-to-door COVID shot pushers report unvaccinated to government health departments

‘Be sure to fill out the Doorknocking Spreadsheet with the counts of who still needs a vaccine … This is important information that the Health Department is relying on!’

The Department of Homeland Security offers a training course to law enforcement, health care workers, and other government employees detailing how to prepare and execute a mass public quarantine in rural areas of the United States.

A website by the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC), a training provider for the Department of Homeland Security, says:

“This 8.0-hour, instructor-led course is designed to provide the knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine (I&Q) of a large portion of a local, rural population. This training will provide public- and private-sector emergency managers, community policymakers, public health, and public safety personnel with the general knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine of a large portion of a local, rural population. A rural community’s ability to collectively respond to an emergency requiring isolation and quarantine is not only essential to minimizing the negative impacts to the community at risk, but also to minimizing the long-term negative economic and health effects on the American public as a whole.”

“This program was supported by Cooperative Agreement Number EMW-2016-CA-0097, administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Preparedness Directorate, National Training & Education Division.” A disclaimer reads: “Points of view or opinions in this program are those of the author(s) and do not represent the position or policies of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency.”

“Core Capabilities” recommended for course participants include environmental response/health and safety, on-scene security and protection, operational communications, operations coordination, planning, public health, healthcare and emergency medical services, risk management for protection, programs, and activities, situational assessment, and supply chain integrity and security. However, the only solid prerequisite to gain the “knowledge necessary” in the 8-hour course is that the “participant must be a U.S. citizen.”

Module Two of the course overview entitled Legal and Ethical Issues of Isolation and Quarantine says: “This module focuses on the legal and ethical considerations of isolation and quarantine. The federal, state and local government legal authorities regarding isolation and quarantine responses will be covered. Due process of law regarding isolation and quarantine will also be reviewed.”

Each student is required “to participate in and pass a course post-assessment with a score of 70% or better to meet the course completion requirements. Each student who meets all of the course completion requirements will receive a pre-approved, Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) certificate of completion stamped with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) logo.”

It is unclear what authority bearers of this certificate wield, or the limits thereof.

A Lake County, Illinois Health Department document entitled Community Health Ambassador Outreach Door Knocking Project to Increase COVID Vaccine Acceptance contains “information and a script” that stresses: “You are not soliciting. Because you are not seeking an order for any goods or services, you are not considered a solicitor. Therefore, ‘No Solicitation’ signs do not apply to you while you are performing this activity.”

The document continues: “After you enter the building, orient yourself so you systematically proceed from floor-to-floor, covering each wing. Utilize the tally sheet to keep count of those interested in getting the vaccine, those who refuse and those with further questions.”

The document also advises participants to “report on your work! Be sure to fill out the Doorknocking Spreadsheet with the counts of who still needs a vaccine … This is important information that the Health Department is relying on!”

Meanwhile, in the words of breaking911.com, North Carolina health department workers “armed” with COVID-19 shots lurked nearby as Action NC volunteers went door to door, plying their target neighborhoods with the experimental biological agent.

“Action NC’s mission is to confront and reduce the root causes of poverty, underdevelopment, and social and economic inequality through grassroots education, training, organization and mobilization.

We organize in poor and working-income communities full of talented and committed people looking for an opportunity to work together to build a stronger and more secure future. We reach out to them in a variety of ways to offer them the opportunity to join, organize, fight, and win.”

“The purpose of these campaigns is to win improvements and to build power,” Action NC’s mission statement says, concluding: “as our members work to build our organization, we also look for opportunities to partner effectively with others so that we can present a stronger and more united front in our specific campaigns, and in our collective drive for justice and equality.”

In a 2017 article appearing on the Action NC website entitled How Trump has trumped your rights, author Kevin Rogers wrote: “Since Donald Trump has taken office, every policy that has been suggested or imposed has received fierce backlash from a majority of the country.”

 

Protests Erupt Across France After Macron Mandates Vaccinations, Proof of Compliance

Protests in Greece & France. Massive crowds demand Freedom & Liberté

Macron makes passports mandatory for “non-essential” services

EXCERPTS: 

Tens of thousands of French citizens take to the streets to fight against Macron’s unscientific totalitarian measures.

Demonstrations erupted across France after President Emmanual Macron announced new freedom-crushing measures in the name of combating coronavirus. The embattled French leader, who had previously said he would never mandate coronavirus “vaccines,” announced on July 12, 2021, new law mandating health care workers to be vaccinated. In addition, the left-wing leader warned that “depending on the evolution of the situation,” he would consider compulsory vaccinations for all of the French. Macron also extended health passes, which prove you have been vaccinated or received a recent negative Covid test, for citizens taking part in “places of leisure and culture,” along with restaurant and transportation services.

Watch a portion of Emmanual Macron’s announcement:

“If we do not act now, the number of cases will continue to rise and will inevitably lead to increased hospitalizations in August.” The President of the Republic presented new measures to supposedly curb the coronavirus pandemic, which he claims the circulation of the “very contagious Delta variant” is progressing in France.

Vaccination will be made compulsory for “nursing and non-nursing staff in hospitals, clinics, retirement homes, establishments for the disabled, for all professionals or volunteers who work in contact with the elderly or frail, including at home,” announced Macron.

Health professionals will have “until September 15” to be vaccinated. As of this date, they must have received two doses (or only one in the case where the person has already been infected with Coronavirus). Checks will be carried out,” and “sanctions will be taken,” added the head of state. “From September 15, if you are a caregiver and you are not vaccinated, you will no longer be able to work, and you will no longer be paid”, also warned the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran on French news station LCI Monday evening.

The health pass extended to “places of leisure and culture” from July 21

From July 21, the use of the health pass will be extended “to places of leisure and culture” that have more than 50 people, explained Macron. More specifically, for all people over 12 years old, “it will be necessary to have been vaccinated or to have a recent negative test to access a show, an amusement park, a concert or a festival,” detailed the head of the State. Cinemas and theaters will also be among the places health passes are mandated. Until now, the health pass was already used in certain concerts and cultural venues that had more than 1,000 people.

Extension of the health pass for restaurants and trains

“From the beginning of August, the health pass will be mandated in cafes, restaurants, as well as in hospitals, retirement homes, medico-social establishments and in long-distance transport” such as planes, as well as “trains and coaches for long journeys,” said Macron. “We are going to extend the health pass as much as possible to push as many of you as possible to get vaccinated,” he said. On French news station BFMTV, the government spokesperson, Gabriel Attal, specified that the pass would also be requested from customers who wish to sit on outdoor terraces.

According to the draft law, the operator of a place that fails to meet future health pass control obligations will be liable to a fine of up to 45,000 euros and one year in prison.

This extension will be incorporated into a bill submitted to Parliament, which will be decided upon “in an extraordinary session on July 21,” added Macron.

Protests Erupt Across France

After Macron’s totalitarian announcement on Monday, patriots organized demonstrations for today and this coming Saturday in France. A tentative schedule of the events was circulated on Facebook:

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets throughout cities in France this Wednesday to protest against the extension of the health pass and the compulsory vaccination mandate announced by Macron. In addition, citizens promise that hundreds of thousands of French will march against Macron’s dictatorship this weekend.

The crowds consisting of citizens and many health care workers with no obvious political affiliation took to the streets chanting “freedom, liberty,” “down with the dictatorship,” or “against the health pass.” Citizens marching for their freedom carried signs stating, “never in my body will return the liquid of dictatorship,” stand against “big pharma,” and “What are your limits in submission?”.

It comes as no surprise that the left-wing media and academics had previously labeled anyone concerned about coronavirus compulsory vaccinations as “conspiracy theorists.” But, as previously theorized at RAIR Foundation USA, it is practically guaranteed that when the left uses the phrase “conspiracy theory,” they try to hide something. And that something is often an actual conspiracy fact. As we have predicted for some time now, governments are mandating being injected with these experimental gene therapies.

Coffee County, TN: After A two-year investigation for criticizing Islam, Christian DA cleared by Board of Professional Responsibility

Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott, the appointed Casada-Jones Special Prosecutor, says he uses "prosecutorial discretion" to refuse to recognize same-sex marriage despite a Supreme Court ruling, and encourages county clerks not to either.

Freedom of speech? What’s that? If Northcott had said likened being a Christian to being part of the KKK or Aryan Nation, do you think he would have been investigated for two years? Of course not. He would have been made chairman of the local Critical Race Theory implementation board.

“Tennessee D.A. investigated for comments on homosexuality, Islam has case dismissed,” by Adrian Mojica, Fox17, July 12, 2021:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–A Tennessee District Attorney previously under fire for comments on homosexuality and Islam has been cleared by the Board of Professional Responsibility (BPR) following a two year investigation.

Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott was under investigation following comments in 2019 in which Northcott wrote on social media Islam was a “evil, violent and against God’s truth” and likened being Muslim to “being part of the KKK, Aryan Nation, etc.”…

Northcott, who refused to be censured by the BPR and challenged the ruling, now says the matter has been dropped after he was granted a motion to dismiss the complaint against him without appeal from the BPR. Northcott says he stands by his comments in a public statement, calling the investigation against him an “attack.” “It was alleged that I am unfit to serve as District Attorney and to remain an attorney in Tennessee because I taught the Word of God regarding homosexuality from the pulpit of a church in Houston, Texas at a Bible conference primarily for pastors sponsored by a seminary as well as my expressing my thological [sic] belief regarding Islam while commenting on another individual’s Facebook post in my personal capacity,” Northcott writes. “Amazingly, this simple exercising of my God-given, constitutionally protected rights so upset certain groups of people that I made local, national, and international news and had to fight their efforts to have me disbarred for the last two years.”

After fighting the investigation successfully, Northcott says the BPR never alleged the mishandling of a specific case and admitted under oath…they could not find a single case that I or my office mishandled.”…

Biden Deploys Becerra Brigades~The white coat supremacy sturmtruppen are coming to your door.

Joe Biden will deploy special squads to knock on doors in the quest to “educate” unvaccinated Americans, and Health and Human Services secretary Xavier Becerra is down with it. “The federal government has spent trillions of dollars to try to keep Americans alive during this pandemic. So it is absolutely the government’s business,” Becerra explains, and “knocking on doors has never been against the law.”

As they await the gentle tap, the people should know that Becerra has his own issues with the law, and the HHS boss has never shown much concern about keeping Americans alive. As Deion Kathawa notes at American Greatness, the California attorney general was a rather odd choice for the HHS job.

After a video by pro-life activist David Daleiden exposed Planned Parenthood’s sale of body parts from aborted babies, Becerra did nothing to stop that ghastly trade and instead charged Daleiden with 15 felonies. The California attorney general also sued the Little Sisters of the Poor, as Kathawa explains, “because their Catholic faith compelled them not to be complicit in the sale of contraceptives under Obamacare.” With other groups, attorney general Becerra proved more lenient.

In Mendota, near Fresno, the MS-13 gang imposed a reign of terror, committing at least 14 murders, with some victims hacked to death before they could testify. Federal authorities spearheaded the case against the gang, and Becerra only showed up after the feds arrested 25 MS-13 gangsters. The attorney general made it clear he was not concerned about the gang’s “status.”

In similar style, the murder of police officers Ronil Singh and Brian Ishmael, both by illegal aliens, prompted little concern for the slain officers and no outcry against “gun violence.” The murders did not prompt attorney general Becerra to launch a campaign against criminal illegals, who enjoy sanctuary in California. These issues did not surface in Becerra’s HHS hearing, and neither did the curious case that led to his surprising departure from Washington in 2016.

Rep. Becerra, once on Hillary Clinton’s shortlist as a running mate, headed the House Democratic Caucus and was in charge of its server. The Democrat’s IT man Imran Awan had access to that computer, and that was a problem. The unvetted Awan could not possibly have qualified for a security clearance but he enjoyed access to the computers of 45 members of Congress, including members of the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees.

When investigators from the Capitol Police requested the server under Becerra’s control, they got only false information. Becerra, reportedly in line for a key post on the House Ways and Means Committee, bolted for California, where Gov. Jerry Brown tapped him for attorney general. In that role, Becerra upheld sanctuary policies and filed more than 100 lawsuits against the Trump administration, at a cost of $41 million.

For his part, Imran Awan became a subject for Frank Miniter, author of Spies in Congress, and Luke Rosiak, author of Obstruction of Justice: How the Deep State Risked National Security to Protect Democrats. That book, along with the Daily Caller, became the target of a lawsuit by Imran Awan. Democrats rushed to the barricades in his defense.

“Congress Pays $850,000 to Muslim Aides Targeted in Inquiry Stoked by Trump,” read the November 25, 2020 New York Times headline. According to the story, the previously unreported settlement is one of the largest to resolve discrimination or harassment claims, in this case by people who “lost their jobs and endured harassment in part because of their Muslim faith and South Asian origins.” In this narrative, Awan’s computer capers had little if anything to do with it, and the award doubtless sinks any prospect for a full investigation.

In these conditions, Democrats believed it was safe to bring Becerra back to Washington. He was unqualified to head HHS but for Democrats, Trump Derangement Syndrome, disregard for national security, and ancestry on the Iberian peninsula of Europe (“Latino”) all count as qualifications. Republican Sen. Susan Collins voted to confirm Becerra, the worst possible choice for the people but ideal for the Democrats and their regime of white coat supremacy (WCS).

Under a WCS regime, unelected medical bureaucrats override the people’s constitutional rights and basic freedoms. The nation’s primary white coat supremacist is Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose bio shows no advanced degrees in molecular biology or biochemistry. A government bureaucrat since 1968, Fauci has reversed himself on many aspects of the pandemic but now claims people who criticize him “are actually criticizing science.”  In the style of Louis XIV, Fauci claims, “La science, c’est moi.”

This certified megalomaniac is the white coat supremacy fuhrer. With no medical qualifications, and little regard for human life or the law, the misanthropic Xavier Becerra is the perfect choice to command the WCS tactical division.

Americans have grounds to wonder if the HHS sturmtruppen might knock on the doors of the already vaccinated in order to “educate” them in other ways. Becerra’s troops might team up with the FBI, and knock on the doors of some Trump voters, or people who question the 2020 election. Under current conditions, those are signs of domestic terrorism. So if the people thought the HHS troops might knock down some doors it would be hard to blame them.

HHS boss Becerra will doubtless use the campaign to enhance his brand with a view to 2024.  As Trump likes to say, we’ll have to see what happens.

EXCERPTS: 

(Natural News) A government document that has recently surfaced offers horrifying details on how door-to-door “strike force” vaccine enforcement teams plan to operate.

Labeled, “Community Health Ambassador Outreach Door Knocking Project,”now-public document published by the government of Lake County, Illinois, instructs “ambassadors” to:

  • Violate “no soliciting” restrictions and illegally trespass onto private property.
  • Impersonate Health Dept. officials and attempt to intimidate building managers into consenting to allowing entry for the strike force teams.
  • Lie to the public and falsely claim covid vaccines are safe by withholding information about serious vaccine side effects, including hospitalizations and deaths.
  • Clear buildings in military fashion, going floor by floor, wing by wing, knocking on doors and intimidating residents of apartment buildings and residential units.
  • Recording the locations (address, room number) of anti-vaxxers in order to feed this information into a government database for further action — most likely forced quarantine removal (medical kidnapping).

Sarah Corriher: Banks Are Being Weaponized

Rumble — Lauren Witzke was left stranded and absent any funds after Wells Fargo canceled her bank account without prior notice. Lauren is the latest conservative figure to be targeted for having the wrong political opinions. Financial blacklisting appears to be expanding under the Biden regime, which is persecuting its perceived political opponents on multiple fronts.

Another day, another de-banking. Imagine a ruthless country where peaceful citizens who fearlessly defend their heritage, their families and their faith can wake up in the morning and find themselves cut off from their entire life savings with no explanation and no recourse. That country is not RussiaChina, North Korea, Venezuela or Iran.

That country is America in 2021.

On Tuesday, 33-year-old Lauren Witzke received a terse notice from her bank, Wells Fargo. The available balance on her account read "$0.00." Her entire life savings of roughly $15,500 had been transferred to "loss prevention." Was this a case of theft or fraud? Had her account been compromised? Nope.

"When I called, Wells Fargo told me that it was a 'business decision,'" Witzke recounted, "and that they have the right to close my account at any time."

Wells Fargo representative told Witzke, who is working out of state and has no other bank account, that she would be barred from retrieving her funds at any branch office and that they would "mail a check." You know how that goes. Wells Fargo did not respond to my phone messages and email inquiries regarding Witzke's case.

Here is what you need to know about Witzke. The 2020 Delaware Senate GOP candidate is an outspoken Christian conservative activist and supporter of former President Donald Trump who peacefully exercised her First Amendment rights at the Jan. 6 Capitol rally. She has not been charged with any crime. She was, however, suspended on Twitter for peacefully opposing mass migration and violent refugee criminals in Europe. She was banned completely from the platform in March for peacefully expressing her opinion that a transgender activist, who tweeted that little girls were kinky, was "demonic." She has organized peaceful election integrity efforts in Georgia through her work with the Hold the Line PAC. She has been a fierce and peaceful advocate for "America First" principles protecting the traditional nuclear family, supporting an immigration moratorium and combating Big Tech censorship.

In other words: Lauren Witzke has a big fat target on her back for threatening the powers that be in Big Government and Big Business. After the Jan. 6 protest, she has encountered obstacles to flying unimpeded across the country to participate in political rallies and events. She cannot check into flights online, is swabbed for explosives and has "SSSS" ("secondary security screening selection") marked on her tickets. That's a designation made by the federal Transportation Security Administration, which keeps a secret list of untold thousands of American citizens targeted for undisclosed reasons as "security" threats.

This is not just about one private bank making a "business decision" to drop a customer for any old reason. This is an obvious case of coordinated financial censorship and targeting of citizens by Big Government and Big Business based on their political views. Pattern recognition is key. As I've previously reported in my columns and latest book, "Open Borders Inc.," Wall Street is in bed with social justice radicals and deep-state bureaucrats who've erected America's very own version of the Chinese social credit system in which political dissent is flagged, shunned, punished and eradicated.

Before Witzke came a long line of dissidents and nationalist groups—ranging from Laura Loomer to Faith Goldy to the Proud Boys to Lana Lokteff and Henrik Palmgren to VDARE and Nick Fuentes to Gab founder Andrew Torba—all blocked or barred from financial entities ranging from Chase and Barclays to Mastercard, Visa, PayPal, Venmo, Patreon, Stripe, and Coinbase.

"The current weaponization of corporations and banks against conservatives and Christians is terrifying," Witzke told me. "I have banked with Wells Fargo for years, using it as savings when I was working in ministry. Only when I was given a platform to share my Christian views on the national stage did Wells Fargo decide to shut down my account. The Evil Oligarchs at Wells Fargo left me, a young woman, with a balance of zero dollars, stranded, and a thousand miles away from my home with no explanation ... Christians and Conservatives, Get your money out of Wells Fargo, NOW!"

Gab's Torba, who has battled de-banking by four different financial institutions and one credit card company, has likened the latest financial terror and blacklisting campaign under President Joe Biden to an Obama-era program pressuring the companies not to do business with lawful firearms dealers, coal companies and other politically incorrect businesses. "What we're seeing is Operation Choke Point," Torba said after news of Witzke's de-banking broke, "where the federal government ... (is coming) after political dissidents."

We've gone far beyond cancel culture. This is not merely about being silenced. It's about being robbed, bankrupted and destroyed by woke capital and swamp oppressors. No one is safe.

As Torba warns: "Today it's Lauren; yesterday it was Gab; and tomorrow it can and will be you."

U.S. to Israeli Delegation: Come If You Must, But Our Minds Are Made Up

BY HUGH FITZGERALD

While Robert Malley sends, via intermediaries, his billets-doux to Iran’s negotiator Mohammed Javad Zarif in Vienna, Israel is sending a high-level delegation of security personnel, headed by Yossi Cohen, the director of Mossad, to Washington, hoping to make the case for American caution, rather than insensate haste, in returning to the JCPOA and lifting sanctions on Iran. A report on this difficult mission is here: “Israeli Security Officials Head to Washington to Share Iran Threat Intel as White House Says It Can’t Be Swayed on Nuclear Deal,” by Sharon Wrobel, Algemeiner, April 26, 2021:

A high-profile Israeli security delegation, headed by Mossad Director Yossi Cohen, is arriving in Washington this week to discuss the dangers of restoring the original 2015 Iranian nuclear accord just days after the White House signaled that the Biden administration will not be swayed to change its policy on the deal.

Ahead of the arrival of the delegation of Israeli senior security officials, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki on Friday answered “no” when asked at a press briefing whether the visit was likely to change the US administration’s stance on reviving the nuclear deal, to which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is strongly opposed.

How indecent of the Bidenites to proclaim to the Israelis, even before they arrive, in front of the whole world, that there is nothing they can say to the Americans that will change their minds. Their minds are made up. The Americans don’t want to be reminded that just a few months ago they were themselves talking about the need “to lengthen and strengthen” the agreement with Iran. They are in no mood to listen to their closest ally in the Middle East. They don’t want to listen to the Israelis, who know better than anyone what Iran is up to with its nuclear program, understand how it plans to comply, or to pretend to, with the JCPOA, and what it will do in 2030 when it is allowed its “break out” and can manufacture, completely legally, nuclear weapons. They don’t want to listen to the Israelis, even though Israel, not America, is the main target of Iran’s nuclear program. How many times has Iran threatened to destroy the Jewish state? The Bidenites don’t want to hear about it. They don’t want to listen to the Israelis, whose tiny country’s very survival may depend on what agreement is concluded with Iran in Vienna and who, therefore, have beyond all others earned the right to be heard. The indifference of the Biden people to Israel’s attempt to present its arguments against a return to the Iran deal is unspeakable.

Despite Psaki’s statement, Dore Gold, President of the Jerusalem Center of Public Affairs, argued that that “it is important that Israel shares all the relevant intelligence on Iran and articulates what the problem is with negotiating with Iran.”

The most persuasive arguments are made face-to-face,” Gold, who served as Director-General of the Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2015, told The Algemeiner. “In the past Israel and the US had different assumptions on Iranian behavior, which have now become even more pronounced. Iran’s record of compliance with signed agreements is very weak.”

Gold is too optimistic – or perhaps he simply won’t allow himself to believe that the Americans can be so idiotically close-minded.  He’s still talking about the value of making “arguments…face-to-face” but the Americans have already said that nothing that is presented to them, no information the Israelis bring with them about just-uncovered examples of Iranian deception, no news about Iran’s ballistic missile program, or the nuclear facilities just completed deep inside the mountain at Fordow, will change their minds. “Don’t confuse us with facts. Our minds are made up.”

…Michael Oren, Israel’s former Ambassador to the US, told The Algemeiner that he is concerned about the symbolic significance of the Israeli delegation traveling to Washington after the White House comments on Friday.

“This is kind of humiliating after Israel’s important ally in the Middle East said it will not listen. I would be very hesitant in sending this delegation,” Oren commented. “If we are going back to the JCPOA, which is flawed, there could be a very dangerous outcome.”

“There is a lot of visual appearance in this in that it shows that there was consultation with Israelis. We should be very careful [not] to legitimize the agreement,” Oren warned.

Oren is right: the Israelis are being humiliated by Jen Psaki’s unembarrassed acknowledgement that there is nothing the visitors can say, no new information that they may bring, that will change Administration minds. And by agreeing to meet with members of the delegation in Washington, the Biden people – Oren fears – can make it appear to Israel’s American supporters that they did, after all, consult with the Israelis.

…There are ongoing discussions — or negotiations, I should say, that are happening now — they’re indirect, of course — on the potential for a diplomatic path forward on the new — on a nuclear deal,” White House’s Psaki said on Friday. “As it relates to Israel, we have kept them abreast as a key partner of these discussions — or of our intentions, and we will continue to do that on any future visits.”

It is not true that the Bidenites have “kept them [the Israelis] abreast” of what’s been going on in Vienna. A great deal has not been shared, which is one source of Israeli anxiety. Nor has the Biden administration asked for Israel’s opinion on those negotiations, much less allowed any Israeli objections to be taken into account. The Biden administration wants this deal to go through. It will jump through whatever hoops the Iranians hold out. In February, it was still insisting that Iran had to go first, and fully return to the deal, before American sanctions would be lifted. Iran wouldn’t have it, and we no longer hear that condition precedent being mentioned.

Commenting on the ongoing talks in Vienna, Gold noted that “there is a real dilemma, because if you remove sanctions there is a huge windfall of funds that becomes available for terrorist activities in the Middle East and around the world. At least the Biden administration is talking about a longer and stronger deal but I don’t think that the Iranians will agree.”

Gold apparently hasn’t noticed that while the Biden administration did, very early on, talk about the need for a “longer and stronger deal,” it has ceased to mention that requirement altogether. Now it refers vaguely to another deal that might be reached after the return to the JCPOA by both sides is accomplished, but why would Iran at that point, having obtained the lifting of all the American sanctions, feel any pressure to agree to a second deal about ballistic missiles and regional aggression through proxies?

Gold suggested that before sanctions are lifted Iran needs to demonstrate that it has changed direction, that it will not help the Hezbollah in missile inventory, and that it is prepared to confine itself to the terms of a deal.

Dore Gold’s suggestions make sense, but there is not the slightest chance that Iran would agree to any of it, nor that the Biden administration would put the slightest pressure on Iran to accept it. The sanctions will be lifted without any further Iranian concessions on missiles to Hezbollah or anything else; sanctions-lifting will provide Iran with a bonanza calculated to be at least 100 billion dollars, money to spend on weapons for itself and for its proxies in Yemen, Iraq, and Lebanon. Once it has the money, Iran will do what it likes, which means it will violate many of the terms of the JCPOA, just as it did between 2015 and 2018, when Donald Trump put an end to the farce, withdrew from the deal, and clamped crippling sanctions on Iran, that were just starting to have a devastating effect on Iran’s economy when the Biden cavalry came riding to Tehran’s rescue. And Israel will have to recognize that when it comes to foiling Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the Jewish state is now very much on its own.

 

House passes bill stopping any future president from imposing ‘travel ban on the basis of religion’

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The list of countries of concern that the Trump administration outlined in an executive order was based on the document devised by the former Obama administration. Despite the fact that it was Obama who set the foundation, it is Trump who is persistently criticized as being discriminatory against Muslims. Obama restricted visa waivers for seven Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen. The restriction was based on security issues. But we didn’t hear any Leftist outcry about Obama being “racist” against Muslims or discriminatory.

This new bill is nothing but virtue-signaling, and wouldn’t even have stopped Trump’s bans, for they were not based on religion, but on security.

It just happens to be the case that among the world’s most egregious violators of human rights and hotbeds of terrorism are many Muslim countries. Does this new bill now mean that such countries when they are Muslim-majority are no longer dangerous? Does it mean that America should permit open immigration from any country, no matter how violent, as to not offend Muslims and the woke crowd?

As absurd as all this is, it is the premise of the irrational policies that are being instituted by the Biden administration. The administration is willing to put national security at risk as to not offend Islam. America continues a rapid descent downwards; Sharia tenets are being institutionalized, while the strictures and policies of Communism are being increasingly normalized.

“US House passes bill to prevent another ‘Muslim ban,’” by William Roberts, Al Jazeera, April 21, 2021:

The US House of Representatives has passed a bill that would limit the ability of any United States president to impose a travel ban on the basis of religion, a move that was welcomed by civil rights advocates as “a major step forward”.

The legislation, known informally as the NO BAN Act, comes in response to former President Donald Trump’s controversial “Muslim ban” that barred travel to the US from several Muslim-majority countries.

The bill, which must also pass in the US Senate to become law, was approved by a 218-208 vote in the House on Wednesday.

“The Muslim ban tore families apart, put lives on hold for years and labelled Muslims, Africans and other targeted people as threatening outsiders,” said Madihha Ahussain, counsel to Muslim Advocates, a US civil rights group.

“We must ensure that no president can enact discriminatory bans like this ever again and with the passage of the NO BAN Act in the House, we are taking a major step forward to ensuring that they won’t,” Ahussain said in a statement as the bill was passed…

Iran rejects third U.S. offer to launch negotiations for new nuke deal in exchange for lifting of some sanctions

The mullahs know that if they stand firm, Biden’s handlers will come groveling with an ever-increasing number of concessions. They know they’re in command now.

“Iran rejects US offer to open nuclear talks amid offer to lift sanctions,” by Yonah Jeremy Bob, Jerusalem Post, March 30, 2021 (thanks to the Geller Report):

Iran rejected a third US offer on Tuesday to launch negotiations over a new nuclear deal in exchange for the lifting of some American sanctions.

The US offer was leaked to the Politico website late on Monday, but was rejected in a matter of hours.

Iran said that it will not stop its 20% uranium enrichment before the US lifts all sanctions, Iranian state TV quoted an unnamed official. The official’s comment came as a reaction to the US media report that Washington would offer a new proposal involving reducing 20% enrichment to jump-start talks.

“A senior Iranian official tells Press TV that Tehran will stop its 20% uranium enrichment only if the US lifts ALL its sanctions on Iran first,” state-run Press TV said on its website.

“The official said Tehran will further reduce its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal if the US does not lift all sanctions, warning that Washington is rapidly running out of time,” it added.

The Iranian rejection of new talks was the third time the Islamic Republic had turned down a US offer to open talks about a new nuclear deal and the continuation of international sanctions against the regime.

The Biden administration has been seeking to engage Iran in talks about both sides resuming compliance with the deal, under which economic sanctions on Tehran were removed in return for curbs on Iran’s nuclear program to make it harder to develop a nuclear weapon.

At the same time, Washington has wanted to ensure that Iran fully returns to the limits in a way that could give it leverage to negotiate new concessions that were not part of the 2015 nuclear deal from Iran.

Some of the issues emphasized by US President Joe Biden’s administration – extending nuclear limits beyond 2030, limits on ballistic missile testing and limits on Iran’s aggressive behavior in the Middle East – reflect Israeli positions, though there is doubt in Jerusalem about how committed the president is to achieving these concessions….

China issues new sanctions for U.S. officials and members of Canada’s parliament

To boycott or not to boycott? It’s a dilemma some Chinese sports associations are facing over footwear brand Nike. Hundreds of million-dollar contracts link them to the American brand.

Fashion brand Hugo Boss is dealing with trouble over cotton from Xinjiang. Its back-and-forth attitude has some calling the company “two-faced.”

Will the United States punish communist China over its lack of pandemic transparency? The U.S. Secretary of State appears hesitant to give details.

How do Chinese communist leaders approach the United States, and what are their plans to defeat it? A bombshell speech tells all.

Boulder Shooter is ISIS Sympathizer, Leftists Hardest Hit

Another opportunity to shore up their sagging “white terror threat” narrative is lost.

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/03/boulder-shooter-isis-sympathizer-leftists-hardest-robert-spencer/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

A man murdered ten people in a Boulder, Colorado supermarket Monday. No details were immediately released about the shooter, but Leftist “journalists,” working from a photo of the shooter, seized upon the shooting to shore up their sagging narrative of “white supremacist terrorism.” There was just one problem: the massacre was actually, after a four-year hiatus, a new incidence of Islamic jihad on American soil.

Even after the shooter’s name was revealed as Ahmad Al Issa (which is how he himself wrote it on his Facebook and Twitter accounts), establishment media reports continued to give his name as  “Alissa,” which of course is a common first name for women in the U.S., and thus gives the impression that he is an American non-Muslim. Were “journalists” trying to obscure the fact that he is a Muslim migrant ISIS sympathizer? Of course, they were.

And that was after they had already decided that he was one of those “right-wing extremists” who are, according to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the “most lethal and persistent” threat the U.S. faces today. Julie DiCaro, a senior writer and editor at Deadspin, tweeted: “Extremely tired of people’s lives depending on whether a white man with an AR-15 is having a good day or not.” As of this writing on Tuesday afternoon, DiCaro has not taken down the tweet, as some media hacks are still, like a captain going down with his sinking ship, insisting that Al Issa is white. Prominent race-baiter Tariq Nasheed tweeted: “White supremacists are trying their hardest to deflect from the fact the Boulder suspect is WHITE. Syrians in America are legally, politically & socially WHITE. Their white status is well documented in court cases Terms like ‘Muslim, ‘Arab’, ‘Islamic doesn’t change whiteness.”

Of course, Al Issa really is white, as he is an Arab Muslim migrant from Syria, and Arabs have been considered “white” ever since they began arriving in this country. Nasheed’s tweet, however, still pointed up the Left’s inconsistency and hypocrisy: up until this shooting, Leftists considered Arab Muslims to be “brown,” after the fashion of Linda Sarsour, who memorably identified as white until she put on a hijab and miraculously became a “person of color.” If the Boulder shooter had been a white non-Muslim American and his victims had been white Arab Muslims, Tariq Nasheed would be railing against the persecution of “brown” people in the United States.

But as it is, Nasheed is trying desperately to shore up a failing narrative. The reality is that Ahmad Al Issa is a deeply religious Muslim with pro-ISIS sympathies. He complained bitterly about “Islamophobia,” hated Donald Trump with passionate intensity, and had scouted out churches and Trump rallies as possible targets for his jihad massacre.

All this makes it abundantly clear that not only is Ahmad Al Issa not a “white supremacist,” but he is a living manifestation of the effects of Leftism in America today. After migrating from Syria as a child during the Obama administration, he, and many others like him, has been inundated with relentless propaganda about how he is a victim of a racist and “Islamophobic” society that will never give him a fair shake, and is institutionally determined to make sure he will never succeed. He has been told that Trump hated Muslims and that his followers were precisely the people who were keeping him down and denying him access to the privilege that they themselves enjoyed at the expense of the “brown” people they despised.

The Democratic Party has been stoking this kind of resentment and feeding it to young people in schools, colleges and universities for years. Ahmad Al Issa is a product of their indoctrination. That in itself may be one reason why Leftist “journalists” and professional agitators such as Tariq Nasheed are so intent on driving home the point that this was a “white” shooter acting out of the hatred that is intrinsic to American culture: to deflect attention away from the fact that he is not a product of American culture at all, but of the Left’s subculture of hatred and resentment. If we had a sane political environment in the country today, that is the hateful subculture the Justice Department would be concerned about. Instead, even as Antifa continues to make the Great Northwest into a radioactive wasteland, this hateful subculture isn’t even on the radar screen. And Ahmad Al Issa isn’t going to put it there.

South Korea to release $7 billion in frozen assets to Iran after consulting with Biden’s handlers

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/02/south-korea-to-release-7-billion-in-frozen-assets-to-iran-after-consulting-with-bidens-handlers;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

While Biden may well be looking for ways to save face in a standoff with Iran, he just gave the thumbs up for South Korea to release $7 billion in assets in Iran. Biden likely hopes this gesture will move Iran closer to negotiations with the U.S. If Biden is lucky, this money will lead Iran to soften its stance and return to the negotiating table, so as to restart the disastrous Iran nuclear deal that saw over $100 billion flow into the coffers of the Islamic Republic. That was a windfall that allowed the mullahs to continue their jihad in the region and globally; another such windfall is in the offing.

To facilitate the trade with Iran of humanitarian items, such as medicine and medical equipment, South Korea has been seeking to use a Swiss channel backed by the U.S., known as the Swiss Humanitarian Trade Arrangement (SHTA), to use the money through Swiss companies’ sales of goods to Iran.

But the trade of humanitarian items just frees up money for other activities. Who could forget Iran’s deceptions? These include its violation of the nuclear deal, and its own admission to having done so, as well as its boastful, repeated threats and provocations regarding its military capabilities. Yet far too many Western leaders have never recognized the implications of all this.

“Foreign ministry says Iran’s assets to be unlocked through consultations with US,” Korea Times, February 23, 2021:

The Iranian assets locked in South Korea will be released after consultations with the United States, the foreign ministry said Tuesday, after Iran claimed it has reached a deal with Seoul on how to transfer and use the frozen money.

According to Iran’s government website, the agreement was reached Monday (Tehran time) during the meeting between Iran’s Central Bank Gov. Abdolnaser Hemmati and South Korean Ambassador to Iran Ryu Jeong-hyun.

It said that the two sides agreed on the destinations for the transfer and that the Iranian central bank informed Seoul of the amount of the money it wants to be transferred.

Tehran has been pressuring Seoul to unblock about US$7 billion of its assets frozen in two South Korean banks due to U.S. sanctions. Seoul has been in talks with Washington on ways to release the money without violating the sanctions, including expanding humanitarian trade with the Middle Eastern country.

“Our government has been in talks with Iran about ways to use the frozen assets, and the Iran side has expressed its consent to the proposals we have made,” the foreign ministry said without providing further details of the proposals.

“The actual unfreezing of the assets will be carried out through consultations with related countries, including the United States,” the ministry said.

Earlier this month, a foreign ministry official said Seoul was finalizing talks with Washington about using some of the frozen funds to pay Tehran’s U.N. dues in arrears, to which the Islamic republic has also agreed.

To facilitate the trade with Iran of humanitarian items, such as medicine and medical equipment, South Korea has been seeking to use a Swiss channel backed by the U.S., known as the Swiss Humanitarian Trade Arrangement (SHTA), to use the money through Swiss companies’ sales of goods to Iran.

Despite the denial from Seoul and Tehran, speculation has mounted that Iran’s discontent over the frozen funds is related to its recent seizure of a South Korean oil tanker and its crew members in the Persian Gulf early last month….

Iran demands end to US and EU sanctions, threatens to block UN snap inspections of nuclear sites

Although significant, Iran’s new threat amounts to nothing, since by its own admission, it has already long ago violated the nuclear deal. That deal was based on lies to begin with. Despite the continuing evidence that indicates how unreliable Iran has been about keeping its word, the West continues to place its hope in negotiations with Iran, which only serves to further stoke the regime’s aggression. It also buys time for the regime to build a nuclear bomb.

Ayatollah Khamenei has already declared in no uncertain terms: Enemies cannot do a damn thing against the Islamic Republic and Islam’s power is growing.” Far too many Western leaders, however, choose not to believe him, at their own peril.

“Iran says it will block snap nuclear inspections if 2015 deal terms are not met,” by John Bowden, The Hill, February 15, 2021:

Iran’s government on Monday warned that it would end the U.N. nuclear watchdog’s ability to conduct snap inspections of nuclear sites in the country unless the U.S. and European countries involved in the 2015 nuclear accord fulfill their end of the agreement and lift sanctions.

A spokesman for Iran’s foreign ministry made the announcement, according to Reuters, setting a Feb. 21 deadline for the U.S. and other countries to relax sanctions reimposed after the U.S. left the nuclear accord in 2017 under the Trump administration.

“If others do not fulfill their obligations by Feb. 21, the government is obliged to suspend the voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol,” spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said, according to the news service.

“It does not mean ending all inspections by the U.N. nuclear watchdog. … All these steps are reversible if the other party changes its path and honours its obligations,” he continued.

A bipartisan group of more than 100 lawmakers has called on President Biden to “remain firm” in his dealings with Iran, urging the administration to hold the Tehran accountable for its increased nuclear enrichment in the years following the U.S. departure from the accord….

How the Trump Administration Permanently Transformed U.S. China Policy—Former state department mike Pompeo Adviser Miles Yu

“The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is probably the most ideologically intoxicated, most dogmatic political party of Leninist stripe in human history. Yet, we don't tend to think of the CCP that way.” Tonight, we sit down with Miles Yu, who served as Senior China Policy Adviser to Mike Pompeo when he was Secretary of State. While many today still harbor illusions about the Chinese regime, the CCP seeks to “replace the US-led international order with its own authoritarian model of governance,” Yu says. And “their internal designation of the United States as chief adversary has never changed.” Miles Yu grew up during China’s Cultural Revolution, a decade of revolutionary change and violence in which millions were killed. In 1985, he came to the U.S. as an exchange student. He’s been a professor at the U.S. Naval Academy for 26 years and after finishing his time at the State Department, he’s now a senior fellow with the Hudson Institute. I interviewed him in his personal capacity. This is American Thought Leaders, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

American Thought Leaders: Gordon Chang-Cooperation With Communist China Impossible~It Seeks to Overthrow America

Rumble — U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has stated the United States will work with allies to hold the Chinese regime accountable. But at the same time, the Biden administration seeks to cooperate with the Chinese leadership in areas like the pandemic and climate change. But does this really make sense? In this episode, we sit down with China analyst Gordon Chang, author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” to discuss President Joe Biden’s recent executive orders and the future of US-China relations.

Biden says he’ll return to nuke deal if Iran reverses ‘nuclear steps’~Khamenei demands immediate end of sanctions

Biden says he “will seek to revive the nuclear deal, but insists that Iran must first reverse its nuclear steps.” But he’s in a standoff with Iran’s supreme leader Khamenei, who said: “If they want Iran to return to its JCPOA commitments, the US must completely lift sanctions. And not just verbally on the paper. They must revoke the sanctions in action.”

Biden is deluding himself if he thinks that any nuke deal with Iran will be authentic. He is following in the disastrous steps of Barack Obama, who enabled Iran to increase its nuclear capabilities and deceive naïve infidel countries. And still Biden’s willingness to return to the deal isn’t enough for Khamenei, who knows exactly what Iran is planning.

Iran-based dissidents — many who have been imprisoned by the regime — are not so easily fooled. They are urging Biden to maintain sanctions, knowing all too well about the nature of the deceitful, jihadist regime which aims to build a nuclear bomb.

In late January, Israel announced that attack plans against Iran were being revised in light of Biden’s return to the nuclear deal. This was a prudent move in light of  Iran’s violation of the previous nuclear deal under the Obama administration, and its own admission to having violated the deal, as well as its boastful, repeated threats and provocations regarding its military capabilities.

“Biden will not lift sanctions to get Iran back to negotiating table,” Guardian, February 7, 2021:

President has said he will seek to revive the nuclear deal, but insists that Iran must first reverse its nuclear steps.

oe Biden has said the United States will not lift its economic sanctions on Iran in order to get Tehran back to the negotiating table to discuss how to revive the Iran nuclear deal.

Asked if the United States will lift sanctions first to get Iran back to the negotiating table, Biden replied: “no” in an interview with CBS News, which was recorded on Friday but released on Sunday ahead of the Super Bowl.

Donald Trump, the former president, unilaterally withdrew the US in 2018 from the atomic deal, which saw Iran agree to limit its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions. Biden has said he will seek to revive the deal, but insisted that Iranmust first reverse its nuclear steps, creating a contest of wills between the nations.

Asked if Iran had to stop enriching uranium first, Biden nodded. It was not clear exactly what he meant, as Iran is permitted to enrich uranium under the 2015 nuclear deal within certain limits.

“Will the US lift sanctions first in order to get Iran back to the negotiating table?” CBS News anchor Norah O’Donnell asked.

“No,” Biden responded.

“They have to stop enriching uranium first?” O’Donnell asked. Biden nodded.

Earlier on Sunday Iran’s supreme leader urged the US to lift all sanctions if it wants the country to live up to commitments under its nuclear deal with world powers, according to state TV.

In his first comments on the matter since Biden took office, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted as saying: “If (the US) wants Iran to return to its commitments, it must lift all sanctions in practice, then we will do verification then we will return to our commitments.”

“This is the definitive and irreversible policy of the Islamic Republic, and all of the country’s officials are unanimous on this, and no one will deviate from it,” Khamenei added Sunday, reiterating Iranian leaders’ previous remarks that the US must ease its sanctions before Iran comes back into compliance….

And Old Joe’s handlers stand ready to give both whatever they want, paid for by American taxpayers.

Funny how every country acts in its own interests except the United States, where a large segment of the population thinks it is “racist” and “xenophobic” to put America first.

“Iran Seeks To Boost Ties With China,” Eurasia Review, January 26, 2021 (thanks to Henry):

Speaker of the Iranian Parliament Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf and Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress of China Li Zhanshu discussed ways for closer cooperation between Tehran and Beijing in various fields, reports Iran’s IRGC-linked Tasnim News Agency.

According to Tasnim, in a video conference on Monday morning Qalibaf and Li explored avenues for the enhancement of cooperation between Iran and China, particularly the parliamentary ties, and discussed the prospect of the regional and international developments.

“The friendly relations between Tehran and Beijing have not been and would not be influenced by the ties with other countries and international conditions, but will go ahead in all fields on the basis of cooperation and common interests,” Qalibaf said in the webinar, reported Tasnim.

Qalibaf also praised China’s rejection of the sanctions against the Iranian nation, saying the strategically significant relations between Iran and China are not affected by developments in other states, the Iranian news agency said….

 

UK: Johnson government signs a multi-billion-dollar trade deal with Turkey amid Trump sanctions

Britain and Turkey are set to sign a multi-billion-dollar free trade deal this week, despite Trump’s sanctioning of Turkey due to its threats in the region and worldwide.

British trade minister Liz Truss boasted:

 “We now look forward to working with Turkey towards an ambitious tailor-made UK-Turkey trade agreement in the near future.”

All this as the Trump administration has cracked down on Turkey. According to the Jerusalem Post:

Those around Trump realized Ankara is hosting Hamas terrorists, having pleasant meetings with Iranian officials and working with Russia against US interests. This has come to a head in the fall and winter as the State Department finally condemned Turkey for giving a red carpet to Hamas terrorists and US sanctions have kicked in after Turkey acquired Russia’s S-400.

In early December, to cushion American sanctions, the Venezuelan regime under Nicolas Maduro urged Venezuelan firms to sign trade deals with both Turkey and Iran.

The Turkish government has also been using US mosques to spread “Islamist-nationalistic fervor,” similar to what Saudi Arabia and Iran have been doing to export their supremacist, jihadist ideologies. David L. Phillips, Director for the Program on Peace-building and Rights at Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights, stated:  “These mosques are not places of worship….They are centers for political mobilization functioning like madrasas, distorting Islamic [sic] and radicalizing youth.”

“Britain says it will sign free trade deal with Turkey this week,” Reuters, December 27, 2020:

(Reuters) – Britain and Turkey are set to sign a free trade deal on Tuesday, the UK trade ministry said on Sunday, the first since Prime Minister Boris Johnson secured a new trade agreement with the European Union.

The two nations will sign a deal that replicates the existing trading terms between Ankara and London, but British trade minister Liz Truss said that she was hopeful a bespoke deal between the countries could be struck soon.

“The deal we expect to sign this week locks in tariff-free trading arrangements and will help support our trading relationship. It will provide certainty for thousands of jobs across the UK in the manufacturing, automotive and steel industries,” Truss said in a statement.

“We now look forward to working with Turkey towards an ambitious tailor-made UK-Turkey trade agreement in the near future.”….

 

Iran defies US sanctions, sends biggest-ever fleet of oil tankers to Venezuela

Iran is getting markedly bolder. After the US seized the “largest-ever” Iranian fuel shipment headed to Venezuela (1.1 million barrels of petroleum) last summer, with Trump Administration plans to distribute about $40 million of the proceeds to victims of terror, Iran is again defying U.S. sanctions, as America is busy navigating through its election crisis.

Iran’s influence in Venezuela and in all of Latin America is increasing. Supplies to Venezuela do not stop at much-needed oil for the fuel-starved country. Iran’s Quds Force is also sending weapons and troops to Venezuela.

Iran expects Joe Biden to “compensate for past mistakes” and return to the nuclear deal. It certainly expects no pushback for its adventurism in Venezuela.

“Iran sends BIGGEST EVER fleet of oil tankers to Venezuela, defying US sanctions – report,” RT, December 7, 2020:

Iran is sending a large fleet of oil tankers to Venezuela to help the Latin American nation survive a severe lack of fuel, Bloomberg has reported, citing sources. Both countries are facing US sanctions targeting their oil trade.

According to the sources, some of the flotilla of around ten Iranian vessels will also help export Venezuelan crude after discharging fuel.

The current fleet under sail is about double the size of the one that first startled international observers in May when crossing part of the Caribbean Sea patrolled by the US Navy, they said.

The last Iranian fuel shipments sent in early October on three vessels are running out, threatening steeper nationwide shortages.

The sources said that the two nations are also discussing ways for Iran to help Venezuela overhaul its Cardon refinery, the last fuel plant there to operate more or less regularly.

The Iranian fuel shipments have been arriving in Venezuela despite Washington working hard to thwart the mission. In August, the US captured four Iranian cargo vessels on the high seas, taking hold of several fuel tankers on their way to Venezuela. The US has also sought to grab other Iranian vessels in the past.

“We’re watching what Iran is doing and making sure that other shippers, insurers, ship owners, ship captains realize they must stay away from that trade,” the US’ special representative for Iran and Venezuela, Elliott Abrams, said in September.

Despite previous threats from Washington to halt the flow of fuel into Venezuela, Iran has remained adamant about the shipments, repeatedly stating they would continue….
