News Roundup! China Is Falling Right Into the Trap, Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977, Joe Biden, Mexican Nationals Arrested In Our Country, RBG, Wall, PDJT Represents HOPE For A Man Dying Of Cancer…..

Our President put this tweet out the other day not for the MSM but for China and the Multinationals that run businesses in China.

The Chinese got the message and acted exactly how our President wanted them to act.

From the article linked above:

China on Saturday said it would continue fighting the trade war with the US “until the end” after the two sides slapped further tariffs on each other’s goods.

The commerce ministry issued a statement calling on Washington not to “misjudge the situation and underestimate the determination of Chinese people” after US President Donald Trump announced new tariffs on Chinese imports. “The US should immediately stop its wrong action, or it will have to bear all consequences,” the statement said.

“China’s will to defend the core interests of the country and the fundamental interests of the people is indestructible, and will not fear any challenge,” the commentary said.

An earlier commentary from Taoran Notes, a social media account affiliated with official newspaper Economic Daily, said China’s countermeasures were akin to a “precision instrument”, targeting industries such as US soybeans, crude oil and cars.

Our President and his Killers are laughing their asses off after reading the Chinese response. More and more Americans will back what our President is doing against China. They know that our President is approaching this geopolitical issue from a perspective of stewardship. PDJT will intensely protect America with the ferocity the same Donald Trump protects his family.

Multinationals will realize that they better move their operations quickly out of China because the Chinese have lost their minds and there is no going back. Plus they are realizing that there is no limit to the economic squeeze PDJT is willing to put on China. Whether it be the U.S. Treasury, the U.S. Dept of Commerce, the U.S. Dept of State, the U.S. Dept of Agriculture etc., these are all tools that are far more powerful than bombs, planes and rockets….

Our President will use the full measure of ALL economic tools at his disposal.

From the article linked above:

National Emergency

Trump could treat China more like Iran and order sanctions, which would involve declaring a national emergency under a 1977 law called the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, or IEEPA.

Once an emergency is declared, the law gives Trump broad authority to block the activities of individual companies or even entire economic sectors, former federal officials and legal experts said.

For example, by stating that Chinese theft of U.S. companies’ intellectual property constitutes a national emergency, Trump could order U.S. companies to avoid certain transactions, such as buying Chinese technology products, said Tim Meyer, director of the International Legal Studies Program at Vanderbilt Law School in Nashville.

Trump used a similar strategy earlier this year when he said illegal immigration was an emergency and threatened to put tariffs on all Mexican imports.

Past presidents have invoked IEEPA to freeze the assets of foreign governments, such as when former President Jimmy Carter in 1979 blocked assets owned by the Iranian government from passing through the U.S. financial system.

“The IEEPA framework is broad enough to do something blunt,” said Meyer.

This is the Democrat front runner. This is the man that will beat PDJT In 2020. I DON’T Think SO!

This is what the MSM, Democrats, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. are fighting for.

From the article linked above:

The total number of federal arrests of Mexican nationals living in the United States now exceeds the total number of federal arrests of American citizens, federal data reveals.

A new report by the Department of Justice (DOJ) finds that in 2018, the number of Mexican nationals arrested for federal crimes exceeded the number of American citizens who were arrested for federal crimes by about 8,000 arrests.

For example, more than 78,000 federal arrests of Mexicans were made last year. Compare that to the roughly 70,500 federal arrests made of American citizens the same year. Over 20 years, the number of federal arrests made of Mexican nationals in the U.S. has soared by 175 percent while federal arrests of Americans grew by only 10 percent.

Excellent tweet which digs deeper into the statement put out by the SCOTUS on RBG.

I love seeing all these different videos about the beautiful WALL that is getting built on our Southern Border!

What an absolutely amazing story! Worth every second. Have plenty of tissue paper.

From the article linked above:

The first thing you should know about me is my town: New Bern, North Carolina. It’s a lazy town, just 10 minutes from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point and 20 minutes from Camp Lejeune, NC—so yeah, we love the Marine Corps and the US Military.

The second thing you should know: I have stage four colorectal cancer. I am dying.

Admittedly, I had nothing in common with Donald J. Trump. Yet I couldn’t help but trust the man.

And when Trump came along, I couldn’t help but be drawn to hope—again.

One thing that happens when you approach death is that you think about your legacy. You think about children and what kind of nation you want to leave behind for them. After eight years of hearing how America and Americans were deplorable, colonialists, and inherently unjust, I had become downtrodden. I had lost my pride.

All of a sudden, here in Eastern North Carolina, we heard someone who loved America, and that someone was going all in, hair on fire, to defend it. I realized he was endorsing me, my family, and all of the families in my community—regardless of color or creed or religion. I began seeing Latinos, young black men, and everyone else embrace the fervor. I had never seen anything like it before.

Mr. Trump is in the ‘Hope Business.’

During the 2016 election, I was on heavy, heavy chemo. I’ve gone through six significant surgeries. One I even tried to reschedule so I can see Trump speak—needless to say, Jenn wasn’t happy with that stunt.

Hope was a dying word. Hope and faith are also what makes us human. Hope is what I see when President Trump hugs the flag like he was a kid again.

But there’s a reason I did that—in 2016, this country began to feel like a family again.

Being scared of dying is a natural thing; being scared for the future of this great nation is no longer necessary. Our republic is safe, with a new generation of fierce minds and culture warriors, and a leader who is willing and able to fight.

I can rest easy. I have hope.

    1. And what adds even more power to this hope and trust is the already-evident progress made by PDJT, backed up with proof in the hard numbers that are now on the record – such as strong GDP since 2Q17, record low unemployment levels (by demographic), record employment levels (by demographic), and a host of other rising economic indicators.

      Even more hope is added by the continually favorable forward-looking attitudes by Americans as measured in several polls that are quickly buried by the MSM every time the poll is very positive for PDJT.

    This is from a country whose “Great Leap Forward” from 1958-1962 pursued ideology to the point where 18-56 million people perished from famine. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Leap_Forward

    The ruling party was brilliant enough to repeat this with “The Cultural Revolution” from 1966-1976, which — being more coercive, killed 500K-2M people more directly than famine for ideological reasons.

    So, when they say, “until the end” — it can easily be read as “until we kill our last Chinese citizen.”

    And having the US “bear all consequences” would mean that we should feel immense guilt that the Chinese would subject their citizens to horrific privations and death rather than behave in a civilized, fair manner.

      While I may, probably will have empathy for Chinese citizens. ZERO sympathy.

      America First! It is that simple. WE cannot control the path ChiCom’s pursue at the expense of its citizens.

      President Trump has tried the easy, somewhat accommodating path to entice ChiCom’s to play fair.

      100%
      – ChiCom’s have lied in the trade talks by making agreements and then taking them back.
      – ChiCom’s have lied about agriculture deals, then did not follow through.
      – ChiCom’s agreed to stop fentanyl, and continue to allow fentanyl to be sold…killing hundreds of thousands of Americans. Dunno how many globally.

      ^^^ All of this support Chyyna’s global domination goals at any cost.

      President Trump is 100% spot on with his policies. American conglomerates are on notice to conduct business accordingly, or suffer the financial losses. Maybe financial ruin in some cases.
      – Wall Street also forewarned…America First!!!

      MOAR winning please!

It is difficult to see how they can be so blind as to not understand what is coming their way, and it won’t be “the end” of America, that’s for sure. I thought that statement was rather odd and emotional for a country that supposedly runs on logic and cunning.

    1. Of course this what the “government” of Communist China may see in the NEAR or even MEDIUM future.
      But the Chinese culture runs on 1,000 year cycles.
      My gut feeling is that Xi and his ilk are maneuvering to “deal with” the near and medium futures. What they have their eyes really on is 100 years from now as regards the United States.

      Never forget the Communist Chinese “government”, just like the dynasties of the former Chinese Emperors, are perfectly wiling to sacrifice MILLIONS of their own people if necessary, to gain a longer goal. Example: the “Cultural Revolution” of Mao Zedong lasted 13 years and killed upwards of 2 MILLION Chinese (not counting those who died due to aftereffects of prolonged starvation /displacement / imprisonment). Example: the Chinese Communist Civil War (began 1927) that resulted in the Communist victory in 1949 over the Republic of China government (established in 1916 after the last Emperor resigned) — this war killed OVER 10 MILLION Chinese, according to the latest estimates, including civilians.

      This “government” will not hesitate to do it again to the people of China. Watch what is now happening in Hong Kong — ALL of the police action, massing troops on the mainline border across from the island, etc. — are warnings to the freedom activists to stop. If they don’t, many people including themselves will be taken out. Then the “government” will come after the FAMILIES and FRIENDS of the activists.

      Meanwhile — my other gut feeling is that the United States won’t so much be threatened by RUSSIAN money / interference, in the 2020 elections — it will be the COMMUNIST CHINESE “government”. They desperately need to see DemocratCommunists (the further leftwing, the better) elected ALL OVER the United States in 2020 — with the top prize being the Presidency. The Communist Chinese “government” probably already has it figured out that JOE BIDEN may not be the nominee, let alone win the office. They’re already “scouting out” which alternate DNC candidate will be on the 2020 ticket.

    ______________________

    I don’t really think they’re ‘lost’ at all.

    They just don’t have anyone who is a leader, by design.

    The GOPe was the same way, until Donald Trump.

    The whole thing, the UniParty, is a corrupt system of cronies, people granted entry into the halls of power AFTER you let them have dirt on you. Like a gang or the mafia, that’s the price of entry. Was it Q who said “those who take are promoted”, or words to that effect? Meaning those who prove themselves corrupt to the bosses, those who put themselves under the Puppetmaster’s thumbs, are elevated within the party, because they can be absolutely controlled.

    Both major parties appear to have adopted this system decades ago. A system like this is based on organized crime in structure, but not in talent.

    In ‘traditional’ organized crime, you still had to have skills to move up the chain of command. In modern political organized crime, you just have to be willing to do something for which you can be blackmailed, something sick, in order to be promoted up the ranks.

    It’s more obvious on the Democrat side, but I suspect both sides are corrupted to the core.

    All of a sudden, DJT comes out of nowhere. What are the puppets supposed to do?

    They look to their masters for answers, but what can the Puppetmasters do?

    They don’t HAVE anyone on the ‘farm team’ with actual skill, talent or ability. All they have is people who have sacrificed their conscience and agreed to commit horrible crimes (mostly against children, I suspect), in exchange for entry into their racket.

    Nobody who could even dream of being in Trump’s league would ever wind up in the Puppetmaster’s stable. The only people who make it into their UniParty crime syndicate is the trash, talentless hacks who owe their position to nepotism and connections based on pay-for-play.

    The people running for president against DJT wouldn’t even be capos in a traditional organized crime syndicate. They’re just street thugs, going up against a self-made billionaire.

    It’s pathetic.

    But that’s all they’ve got.

    Because the real people running the show are far too evil and compromised to ever run for public office themselves, and they’re probably not interested in that kind of grunt work anyway, so they have created a system where they control everyone who gains access to power.

    This orchestrated ‘blackmail in exchange for power’ scheme was working very well for them, for a long time, until the day DJT and Melania came down the escalator, and knocked their entire phony gameboard off the table, scattering the UniParty pawns all over the floor.

    How can they take DJT on directly?

    Who do they (Dems OR GOPe RINOs) have, in their entire network of psychopaths and petty criminals and pedophiles, who has the experience, accomplishments, skills and abilities that DJT has?

    Nobody.

    Nobody even close.

    They can’t just pull somebody out of a bag, and they haven’t been recruiting for anyone besides compliant white collar criminals in decades.

    And it’s not like they can start recruiting ‘good’ people now, because how would that work?

    The moment any ‘normal’ person learns what’s really going and who’s running the show and how corrupt and sick the whole thing is, how long are they going to stick around?

    The only way they could recruit ‘good’ people, honest Americans with actual skill and ability, is if the UniParty went ‘straight’ or ‘legit’, so that ‘good people’ would be willing to associate with the ‘party apparatus’.

    What are the chances that the UniParty is going to repent and go legit?

    What is ‘zero’?

    Nope.

    LESS than zero.

    WAY less.

    There’s no chance at all.

    So as long as We the People keep running legitimate, non-professional politicians who are not part of the crime syndicate, the crime syndicate will have NO ANSWER, they will have NOBODY who can go toe-to-toe with an honest American.

  6. I feel really bad for the colorectal cancer guy. Then, again, I felt really bad about my uncle’s acute myologonous leukemia. I even feel really bad for RBG’s pancreatic cancer [though she’d favor holding me accountable under South African law for existing rather than support her oath to the Constitution]. Cancer sucks.

    The “gold standard” for treating otherwise incurable cancers is to sample the cancers, identify “hooks” on the outside of cancer cells, then take immune cells out of the body and train them to produce antibodies to those hooks, then reinfuse them into the body. Currently costs about $250K. This seems like a very technological and straightforward process — and if it follows the cost-path of microprocessors, it should cost about $60K in six years, and $15K in 12. In 18 years, they start including it as a “surprise gift” in boxes of breakfast cereal.

    Government (mostly the FDA), Pharma, and the “Healthcare” industry will do everything they can to stall this process, along with all the Governmental and NGO voices that hope the elderly will just die already instead of taking up space.

    But we are right on the edge of where cancer may be “cured” in a cost-efficient manner — which makes every life lost today just that much more tragic. Dying of cancer 20 years ago was misfortune; dying of cancer today is bad timing.

    1. Immunotherapy is great if you have a healthy subject. Think of cancer cells being recognised as foreign, like germs. If the tumour load is large immunotherapy can be likened to the charge of the light brigade. Debulking is often a precursor but think how sick you get with a boil. Imagine how sick you’d get with a much larger amount of debris entering the bloodstream. It’s the dead cancer and white cells that make you sick. Think gangrene. If your other organs are dodgy from chemo, radiation and surgery it would be like climbing mt Everest. Even normal chemo if “too” effective ie more than 1kg/week tumour death can result in tumour lysis syndrome. This is very serious. The body is being overwhelmed by all those toxins. Renal, liver failure. Mental confusion etc. she’s in no condition to face that.

  7. Au Ng’s tweet has me a little puzzled. The official statement released regarding RBG included information about her having received chemotherapy daily for 3 wks – btw, would mean a M-F dosage schedule. The stent placement is a significant event, and they’re correct on its meaning, but the chemo is a serious issue.

    Chemotherapy takes a serious toll on all body organs, including weakening the heart muscle. Important to note that she is likely reaching a point that no more chemo will be possible due to her weakened state. RBG is “strong” for her age, but ultimately that gives way. Chemo at her age is not well tolerated.

    Au Ng is correct on the careful parsing of words regarding the true status of RBG’s health…

Whatever type of cancer they’re calling it this time, it has definitely metastasized, as evidenced by tumors in lung and pancreas.

  8. HUNDREDS OF ANGRY PARENTS IN THE ROCKLIN SCHOOL DISTRICT NEAR SACRAMENTO PULLED KIDS FROM CLASS TO PROTEST THE FORCED LGBTQ+P FOR PEDOPHILE CURRICULUM BACK IN MAY

    At a school board meeting in May where the curriculum was narrowly approved, the district’s legal counsel said it cannot change when the students receive the state-approved curriculum. The district did agree to “tweak” the program to address some concerns by the parents, some of whom said their children would be confused by learning about notable LGBTQ people. The concession did not mollify all parents, and 700 students stayed home Friday; the entire school district comprises 12,000 students. Meanwhile, other parents said they’re considering pulling their students from the district’s schools permanently.

    An LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum in the Rocklin School District, near Sacramento, is riling parents, resulting in 700 children being pulled from classes last Friday.

    1. Duchess – My kids that live in SoCal reported to me that their school district was so upset by the new pedo curriculum that they protested and were able to nix the entire thing. According to them, it is not being implemented in Orange County at all. They have the typical sex education day, which parents can opt out of if desired, but nothing more than that. Apparently, according to them, each district has the option to set its own curriculum and does not have to follow the state recommendations. I will keep you posted as the school year progresses.

  9. RBG is a complex issue in several aspects:
    After over 25 years of working with / caregiving for, elderly people who were very sick, one of the things that has remained with me is their almost-universal determination to fight until the very end. I believe this is linked to the natural survival instinct that all creatures have.
    Along with that, there is the “personal goal fulfilled” determination. Example: my late father: he was determined, even after having a massive stroke, to make it to his 90th birthday. He did — then passed 4 days later.
    Then there is the “legacy” determination. It is possible that RBG wants to leave a firmly-established legacy of her work on the Supreme Court. (Whether or not people agree with her Court opinions, it’s a legacy)
    I understand these concepts and can see why very ill people will fight for them no matter what.
    On the other hand — I hope to Almighty God that RBG is NOT being manipulated by “handlers” who are keeping her alive to block President Trump from naming her successor in the foreseeable future. If indeed this is what is going on, that’s NOT good. Example: the Duke of Northumberland knew the King, Edward VI, was dying of tuberculosis but kept him alive by hiring quacks to give him “medicaments” which could not cure nor alleviate pain (Edward VI died at age 16). However, Northumberland used the time to convince Edward VI to sign a document leaving the throne to Northumberland’s daughter-in-law — Lady Jane Grey — instead of to the rightful heir (Mary I). Lady Jane Grey reigned for 9 days before Mary arrived with an army to claim the throne.

    1. RGB is not being propped up or manipulated, although there has been plenty of that in the past. Her recent public statements reveal clarity of mind. Nonetheless, her continue service reflects that unhealthy state of SCOTUS. The direct and primary responsibility for this is at the feet of Congress. For my lifetime, beginning after Kennedy, the increasing partisan state of the House has led to gridlock from term to term and thereby a complete abdication of legislative power. SCOTUS has, by default, filled the void with more and more socially important and divisive cases. This has made the appointment process life-or-death for liberal fascists because once on the bench it’s 40 years of unchecked discretion.

      RBG will stay because she is recognizes the ideological stakes, knows she was appointed for that reason and believes she is on the right side of the philosophical divide. It’s a shame. I abhor her views but i respect her dignity and reserve. She deserves better but ultimately sees her as a soldier in a war.

Then, after a month or so, Lady Jane Grey’s father was caught and executed for his role in an uprising, which led to Queen Mary’s final decision to execute the 16 year old Lady Jane Grey, who was just a pawn in that Game of thrones.

      Mary wasn’t called “Bloody Mary” for nothing.

  10. Hey y’all.

    Time to weigh in on the weekly DC Swamp contretemps. This time it is the ludicrous, disingenuous alleged “controversy” as to the comments Trump made regarding Jews and disloyalty. Predictably on Fox this morning it was a lead story in each hourly segment. fine. But my ass became unacceptably chapped when Howie (Ombudsman for the Left) Kutz, an alleged ‘voice of reason” (and Jew), led his weekly segment with this story when there is so much, much more of real importance. I turned Howie off to watch some real TV: my 19th (at least) turn at Lethal Weapon: great movie – no politics, no race, good dialogue! But the “loyalty issue” needs to be addressed.

    This, in turn, led me to what i consider the most literate and, consequently, most offensive attempt to hang Trump for conjoining the Jewish vote with loyalty to country and Jewry. Remember, this president is (a) the parent and grandparent of Jews (b) he is almost naively honest and has no problem voicing what we are all thinking or saying to our spouses or confidants. (It is most easy for me to picture him is a Thurston Howell monogrammed bathrobe spouting off to Melania about this idiot or that dumbass idea and her retorting in the Greta-Gorboesque accent “Oh Donald, stop it”). The fact is none of us can fathom why Jews vote liberal – my personal conclusion being that those who do all want to live to be invited to an UES cocktail party just once.

    I have persistently extolled the quality and insight of Power Line (@powerlineblog) here several times. Four conservative veterans provide consistent and honestly-offered workunfettered by agenda and uninfluenced by “lobbyists” or “underwriting” (See, e.g. N(ot) P(rofessional) R(adicals) and P(utrid) B(ovine) S(cat)). Steve Hayward, Scott Johnson, Paul MIrrengoff and John Hinderaker are the four principals. (background at: https://www.powerlineblog.com/about-us). Each has stellar credentials. All have Minnesota roots and a lot of the content is Minneapolis-centric, but their local work was also the genesis of the current Omar national scandal.

    As another aside, they have formed and operate the “Center for the American Experiment” one of the most influential conservative thinktanks around. The CAE has just published the most definitive debunking of the entire climate/green movement: “Doubling Down on Failure. (https://2lffqo2moysixpyb349z0bj6-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/DoubleDownWind-Whole-3.2019-with-Cover.pdf). In fact, Doubling Down has been nominated as one of three finalists for most influential work of he year. (you can follow links and vote if you want – I have 5 times). BUT I DIGRESS.

    The author and article to which I refer appeared yesterday in Power Line Blog.No site or group is perfect. In this
    case, for the past three years I have grown increasingly angry at the scattershot, unhinged and scurrilous attacks on PDJT by Mirrengoff that began before Trump was elected but now have reached an insane level of derangement that threatens the credibility and influence of Power Line. I have attached the entire article below. I can be summarized as follows. “Trump isn’t Jewish. Trump can’t demand loyalty. I’m a Jew. Shut up.” It really is that baldly bad. I commend you to the uniformly critical comments posted by highly literate well-spoken readers at the end.

    Aside from his terminal TDS, Mirrengoff is the tip of the spear of the intellectually dishonest left media and Jewish high-rabbis of liberalism. While a few may be simply wrong but misguided, we think the entire media and those with the ears of the media are being influenced or in fact being paid by Quatar and Saudi to provide them cover. The entire effort to turn back anti-semitism and anti-Israel sentiment on conservatives and Trump is just cover for the influence of Arab oil money. Whatever, it makes me nauseous.

    1. The only quibble is your depiction of Trump as naively honest. Naive is not a word I’d use to describe Potus at all. He may come across as Thurston but most of the trump “character” is facade that’s been fooling lesser mortals for years and Melania is smart enough to play straight guy. This is a very calculated series of pinpricks and outright skewering of the lefts sacred cows. Look at the reaction! The left lose it and normal people go Wow , they really ARE bat shit crazy!

      The fact is, JEWISH FOOD-FIGHTS have consequences for everybody. CHRISTIAN DIVISIONS have consequences for everybody. AMERICAN INDIAN SYMBOL FIGHTS have consequences for everybody.

      Ruling people out of these fights is nobody’s “right”. The LISTENER has the freedom to not listen. But we ALL have a right to speak.

      Some of the best thought on almost ANY subject is NOT by “members”. I remember how GREAT it was when Jews and non-Jews could have fearless, friendly discussions about all aspects of religion. It was wonderful. Most people younger than me don’t remember what it was like before PC. It was AWESOME. And what is very interesting is that really TOXIC antisemitism was RARE back then.

  11. The best thing about the detritus that you describe is it is way too little and way too late for the Jew haters. They had their big chance with Adolph and while much damage to Jews was accomplished, the overall mission failed. One could argue that the entire attempt was almost certain to strengthen the Jews if it failed.

    And fail it did. Proof is the existence of the STATE of Israel, not just the Jewish people. And it is a state that is armed to the teeth and generally has an Old Testament ‘the impossible takes a bit of time’ spine. They are not going quietly, and IMO aren’t ever going at all. The Islamic fantasy of wiping Israel off the map, whether figuratively or literally, ain’t never gonna happen. Just one little fact: the F-16s that we sold to Israel barely remain F-16s. The Israelis heavily modify and improve the components and REFUSE to share those modifications with USA! American F-16 pilots are not allowed to even look inside those F-16s. I postulate that in a simulated dogfight our F-16s would lose.

    No way that a country so committed to survival could ever be defeated by islamics (some of whom were described by David as ‘uncircumcised heathens’).

    I read (with mild quiet amusement) the furious efforts to slander Jews as the flailing of a dying animal. If Israel nuked Mecca, the roar of the wounded animal would increase but the sight of their highest power on earth turned into a smoking crater would be the final kill stroke of the bullfight. Life would be very bad for awhile but the outcome would not be in doubt – Islam would be finished.

    As the 2020 election still hovers just over the horizon, a storm is brewing that could obscure We The People’s view of that contest, and our ability to have our voices heard.

    I’m speaking, of course, about the impenetrable liberal curtain that hangs over the nation’s social media landscape. On Twitter, Facebook, and elsewhere, algorithmically-assisted progressives are censoring and shadowbanning the views with which they disagree, while hiding behind the default argument regarding their status as a “private” company.

    Now, as we near the 2020 election itself, these Big Tech corporations aren’t simply stifling the cacophony of the constituency, however…they’re going after candidates too, in a technocratic overreach that should bring the Constitution crashing down around their head.

    He likely does not understand that the bigger deception is from the hand of Buffet.

    Buffet may have in fact “deployed” him (encouraging disclosure) at this time as a form of FF distraction.

    Most likely he’s being used as the sincere and honest side of crypto-secure governance, totally unaware that what he believes in and is promoting is the outer shell of a DS controlled FAKE crypto-(false)secure totalitarian system to further enslave everyone on the planet.

    Christian videographers will not be forced to produce videos of same-sex weddings.

    Earlier today, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the constitutional order, limited the reach of expansive nondiscrimination laws, and protected a Christian couple from having to choose between their business and their conscience.

    The facts of the case are simple. The plaintiffs, Carl and Angel Larsen, are videographers who create “commercials, short films, and live-event productions.” While they work with anyone of any race, sex, sexual orientation, or religion, they will not produce videos that advance viewpoints that violate their Christian beliefs. That includes videos that “contradict biblical truth; promote sexual immorality; support the destruction of unborn children; promote racism or racial division; incite violence; degrade women; or promote any conception of marriage other than as a lifelong institution between one man and one woman.”

    2) Executive Summary…

    Chemical flows from China have helped fuel a fentanyl crisis in the United States, with significant increases in U.S. opioid overdoses, deaths, and addiction rates occurring over the last several years. Unlike previous opioid epidemics, including a temporary spike in U.S. fentanyl use in 2006 that was traced to a single clandestine lab in
    Mexico, fentanyl sold in the United States is now being produced by individual distributors across the country.

    1

    2d
    Alex Graham @Alex_Graham
    3) The diffused nature of fentanyl distribution and the drug’s high potency have complicated U.S. counternarcotic efforts
    and necessitated new policies aimed at reducing flows of fentanyl and other synthetic opiates to the United States.
    The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is the federal government’s primary counternarcotic authority,
    working with state and local law enforcement to regulate and enforce controls on illicit drugs and chemicals.

    2d
    Alex Graham @Alex_Graham
    4) According to U.S. law enforcement and drug investigators, China is the primary source of fentanyl in the United States. Along with shipments sent directly to the United States, fentanyl is shipped from China to Mexico and, to a lesser degree, Canada, before being trafficked across the U.S. border. In response, the U.S. and Chinese governments have taken steps to increase counternarcotic cooperation and strengthen regulations governing chemical flows.

    production and distribution methods.

    Alex Graham @Alex_Graham
    6) China is a global source of fentanyl and other illicit substances because the country’s vast chemical and
    pharmaceutical industries are weakly regulated and poorly monitored. Chinese law enforcement officials have
    struggled to adequately regulate the thousands of chemical and pharmaceutical facilities operating legally and
    illegally in the country, leading to increased production and export of illicit chemicals and drugs.

    Alex Graham @Alex_Graham
    7) Chinese chemical
    exporters utilize various methods to covertly ship drugs to the Western hemisphere, including sending illicit
    materials through a chain of forwarding systems, mislabeling narcotic shipments, and modifying chemicals so they
    are not controlled in the United States. To reduce flows of fentanyl and fentanyl-like substances to the United States,

    There are some astonishing videos of Hezbollah-connected South Americans being killed in perfect operations that last no more than 90 seconds.

    The reason the Mexican cartels didn’t intimidate each other is that after each atrocity, someone took credit, thus goading the others to retaliate.

    No level of butchery could avoid the inevitable retaliation.

    They skinned each other alive, disemboweled each other alive, and so on.

    In June of this year, simultaneous attacks on cartel members were carried out in Agua Prieta, Naco, and Nogales.

    The Mexicans concealed the number killed, but the state Department issued a travel advisory, and the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office for the first time warned Americans that a “significant level of violence” was taking place.

    Nobody knows who did the killing, but they got some of the most well-protected cartel members.
