It’s a Real National Security Issue That Most of Our Military Supplies Are MADE IN CHINA
It is about a potential supply chain crisis generally and specifically about a military supply chain problem.
But, before you write this off as nutty news from the prepper world, see that the story about a major impediment to our supposed military might is actually a warning fromForbes earlier this week:
Biden’s Supply Chain Worries Signal A Looming Crisis In U.S. Security
” Contrary to what you may have heard, Republicans and Democrats do not disagree on everything. When it comes to the growing economic challenge posed by China, they seem to share similar anxieties.
Exhibit A in this emerging bipartisan consensus is President Biden’s February 24 executive order concerning the security of U.S. supply chains. The order expresses worry about recent industrial trends in terms almost identical to those set forth by a Trump executive order on July 21, 2017.
Trump’s directive signaled an embrace of industrial policy, and Biden’s portends that the new administration will stay on that path.
The concern, in a nutshell, is that deindustrialization has led to a hemorrhaging of U.S. manufacturing skills, with China emerging as the main beneficiary.
The moment is fast approaching when America’s military will be unable to equip itself for modern warfare without relying on Chinese suppliers.
So if the war is with China, there’s a good chance the U.S. military would be defeated.
The industrial decline of what was once called the “arsenal of democracy” is much more advanced than many Americans realize.”
I have already heard from some of my faithful readers wanting to know what happened in our once beautiful capital city***.
This will be a short report today because I would like to see more facts about what really went down at the Capitol.
I spent the morning near the White House waiting with hundreds of thousands of peaceful patriots to hear the President speak.
Here is a screenshot of where I was. This view is what the President could see. But, even this photo taken at 8:35 a.m. does not begin to show how massive the protest gathering was, especially when the President took the stage hours later.
Here is the youtube video of the scene (which youtube might eventually scrub):
President Trump was scheduled for eleven, but didn’t speak until noon.
Although the temperature was in the moderate low 40’s, most everyone appeared to be pretty darn cold as they waited for many hours in an absolute stunning sea of flags and banners of all sorts.
When the President finished, most of this massive crowd began moving toward the Capitol building where some Members of the House and Senate were attempting to present a case that the election might(!) have been a fraud.
I was not at the Capitol, but like you, saw the images on TV after getting home.
I’ll show you more pictures as the days go on, but here are a few that I took while mingling around a crowd that was largely working class Americans of all ages. The “deplorables” according to the elitists in the Democrat Party.
The Chinese Communist Party menace!
You will see that I was most interested in the Chinese-American presence (Vietnamese-Americans who have first hand experience with Communism were also out) showing their support for this President, the only hope they see to keep the Chinese Communist Party from gaining a greater foothold in America.
As for what happened in the afternoon at the Capitol building at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, we need to wait until there is more information.
Of course none of us condone violence of any sort, but if it turns out that Trump supporters are largely responsible, I ask the ruling class WHAT DID YOU EXPECT? when on both sides of the elite political aisle, these Americans who love Trump have been disrespected while they watched as our weak leaders failed to criticize the violence for most of last year perpetrated by the Leftists—Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
And, the final insult to them, to the country class, was the great Election Steal of 2020 which unseated the one political leader they see as truly liking them and caring about them as he puts America first!
*** When I say once beautiful city, I am referring to the Washington, DC where I lived in my late 20s and where I took my children for field trips and trips to the Kennedy Center where a homeless encampment is within view of it now and where store fronts are boarded up.
My friends and I remarked that we may never be back. Yesterday might have been our last site of it.
California COVID Cases Surge- Proving Lockdowns Don’t Work
If you still live in California, you probably deserve a medal. Living under the tyrannical rule of Newsom has to hurt. He keeps on adding to his COVID rules, but the only thing the rules accomplish is to prove that lockdowns don’t work. The economy sinks while the CoronaVirus cases surge.
Stephen Moore explains that the lockdowns don’t reduce deaths, and they hurt those who can least afford to be hurt:
Lockdowns are crushing the little guy. Even so, it is the Democrats who are pushing this anti-freedom agenda. Here are the 10 states listed by The New York Times with the strictest lockdown orders: California, Connecticut, Illinois, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Washington. What do they have in common? Democratic governors.
The states that have not locked down their economy have lower death rates than New York and New Jersey. The unemployment rate for service workers in these states has skyrocketedto as high as 10%. In contrast, the red states, such as Utah and Florida, that are still open for business have unemployment rates for service workers as low as 4%.
Be confused no longer, they have a STRATEGY
So if you have been confused about why these Democrat governors are behaving in a way that is clearly aimed at bringing down the US economy, don’t be confused. The Democrat Party has been indoctrinated for decades in the Cloward-Piven Strategy—bring down Capitalism by creating a massive welfare state.
In 2009 I wrote about it at Refugee Resettlement Watchpositing that the reason the Left wanted more impoverished refugees and immigrants was to add to the numbers of poor people who would demand more ‘services’ from an increasingly strained government.
Here is my post from 2009. I know it is long but maybe it will help clear up any confusion you have right now about what appears to be just dumb decisions by dumb Dems. No, this is a strategy!
Cloward-Piven Strategy: bring down Capitalism by flooding the welfare system
More on November 23rd: Jim Simpson, an expert on the Cloward-Piven strategy has more today at the American Thinker, here.
That is the basic goal involved in the Cloward-Piven strategy that most of us never heard of until Obama and the community organizers got to the White House. I’ve been reading about it lately, thanks to RRW reader Paul, and it came to mind last night as I considered the fact that Somali refugees had flooded Maine primarily for the generous welfare system (more shortly).
Inspired by the August 1965 riots in the black district of Watts in Los Angeles (which erupted after police had used batons to subdue a black man suspected of drunk driving), Cloward and Piven published an article titled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty” in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation. Following its publication, The Nation sold an unprecedented 30,000 reprints. Activists were abuzz over the so-called “crisis strategy” or “Cloward-Piven Strategy,” as it came to be called. Many were eager to put it into effect.
In their 1966 article, Cloward and Piven charged that the ruling classes used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion. Poor people can advance only when “the rest of society is afraid of them,” Cloward told The New York Times on September 27, 1970. Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation; poor people would rise in revolt; only then would “the rest of society” accept their demands.
The key to sparking this rebellion would be to expose the inadequacy of the welfare state. Cloward-Piven’s early promoters cited radical organizer Saul Alinsky as their inspiration. “Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules,” Alinsky wrote in his 1972 book Rules for Radicals. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judaeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system’s failure to “live up” to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist “rule book” with a socialist one.
You should take some time and read Cloward and Piven’s 1966 seminal work in the Nation magazine to fully understand the concept. They (and their comrades today) want to enroll as many people as they can on public assistance, cause a crisis by overloading local governments, bring greater federal control and ultimately collapse Capitalism as the federal government takes greater control and brings about ultimately a guaranteed wage for all— a redistribution of wealth.
[Update! The article is no longer available at The Nation, but a Leftwing publication reposted it here,at Common Dreams.]
How can the poor be organized to press for relief from poverty? How can a broad-based movement be developed and the current disarray of activist forces be halted? These questions confront, and confound, activists today. It is our purpose to advance a strategy which affords the basis for a convergence of civil rights organizations, militant anti-poverty groups and the poor. If this strategy were implemented, a political crisis would result that could lead to legislation for a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.
My theory is that the “poor” of the 1960’s were, in subsequent decades, entering the middle class. Thanks to Capitalism there weren’t enough of them to collapse the system and many other Americans have an antipathy to living off the government and accepting welfare! So community organizers need the immigrants and refugees who have become accustomed, in the case of refugees, to living off of the United Nations, to help swell the welfare rolls. That is the only logical explanation for the Obama Administration continuing to resettle very high numbers of refugees right now (in a recession!) when there is little work for them—well that, and the desire on their part to create a magical borderless utopian world.
The Somalis who migrated to Maine are only too happy to comply, next! Here it is.
So here we are, decades later, just where Cloward-Piven, Saul Alinsky, Barack Obama, AOC and Ilhan Omar wanted us to be—redistributing wealthby handing out welfare checks to most of America.
If Biden/Harris succeed in stealing the White House, the demented old man could finish us off by handing us over to the Communist Party of China.
“[I]t’s just not going anywhere. It’s going down like a shot dog.”
(Low class comment by Senator John Thune (R-SD) about any election challenge that might occur on January 6th.)
If there is any bright side to the train wreck, the Election Steal of 2020, it is very clear that most Republicans are timid and vile creatures as Trump pointed out in a series of recent tweets.
On January 6th, a MAGA movement is going to have a very clear list of those who are friends and those who are foes as the socialists/communists make their big move to take over the country.
And, MAGA must root-out those doing China’s bidding!
After that weasel and friend of China, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, is his sidekick Senator John Thune of South Dakota, both are good bets for history books to label traitors of the century.
By the way, McConnell has been given brownie points for his push to get supposedly conservative judges appointed, but now some are questioning what sort of judges he did promote. See Federalist Society judgesunder the microscope!
Here is the Epoch Timeson Trump’s latest blast at the Republican cowards:
Trump Urges GOP Senators to ‘Step Up and Fight for the Presidency’
President Donald Trump on Saturday called on Republican senators to “step up and fight for the presidency” as they continue to distance themselves from efforts to challenge electoral college votes on Jan. 6.
“Time for Republican Senators to step up and fight for the Presidency, like the Democrats would do if they had actually won,” Trump wrote in a series of Twitter posts.
“The proof is irrefutable! Massive late night mail-in ballot drops in swing states, stuffing the ballot boxes (on video), double voters, dead voters, fake signatures, illegal immigrant voters, banned Republican vote watchers, MORE VOTES THAN ACTUAL VOTERS (check out Detroit & Philadelphia), and much more. The numbers are far greater than what is necessary to win the individual swing states, and cannot even be contested.
If a Democrat Presidential Candidate had an Election Rigged & Stolen, with proof of such acts at a level never seen before, the Democrat Senators would consider it an act of war, and fight to the death. Mitch & the Republicans do NOTHING, just want to let it pass. NO FIGHT!
“But when it is all over, and this period of time becomes just another ugly chapter in our Country’s history, WE WILL WIN,” he added.
The president has ramped up his criticism of Republican senators in recent days for their reluctance to support efforts to challenge votes cast by presidential electors in contested states during a joint congressional session on Jan. 6, where Vice President Mike Pence will be counting the votes.
Congress’ Role In Election Results: Here’s What Happens Jan. 6
Referring to Thune’s comment about shot dogs, Trump responded:
Thune’s remarks appear to have caught Trump’s attention. On Tuesday evening the president blasted the senator on Twitter, writing: “South Dakota doesn’t like weakness. He will be primaried in 2022, political career over!!!”
Your mind likely immediately went to the the latest GOP darling, SD governor Kristi Noem who promptly said she wouldn’t primary her good friend John Thune.
Typical Republican politicians sucking up to the President when he arrived to do his now famous Mt Rushmore speech in South Dakota last July.
For those of you who have latched onto Governor Kristi Noem as a possible national office holder (Prez or Veep), get rid of that idea. She is basically a RINO with a pretty face.
I know I shouldn’t judge pols on one issue, but I do.
A few years ago, she abandoned the President when he attempted to give some local control (some say-so) to communities that could be chosen as new refugee resettlement sites.
Is this why?
China owns Smithfield Foods located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota!
Does China own Thune and Noem?
China needs their pork!
South Dakota has been swamped for many years now with impoverished refugees, low skilled workers for their globalist meatpacking plants, and Noem dares not cross them.
China gets its pork and rural America is changed forever as it must deal with the needs of tens of thousands of low-skilled, low wage third world workers many of whom were very sick from the Chinese virus earlier this year.
(China almost got its hooks into Montana, see here.)
A few years ago, I traveled the state, saw what was happening with the meat plants changing South Dakota, and I heard from our people there that Noem was nothing special (she was a Congresswoman at that time), just a typical pol.
P.S. If you are wondering what the schedule might be on January 6th, the NPR article tells us Congress goes intojoint session at 1 p.m. that day.
I expect everyone reading this post to watch this 18 minute video that the media does not want you to see. Those 18 minutes will dispel any confusion you might have about what is happening to us at this critical juncture in the history of our great country!
For the moment it is here at Youtube with an introduction explaining why it might not continue to be available at Youtube which is censoring any video that questions the integrity of Election 2020.
Update: As expected this version was removed as well.
You will learn why it is so important for the Communist Party of China to make sure that Donald J. Trump is removed from the White House.
When you come to Washington DC on January 6th, or when you do whatever you can where you live to resist the Biden/Harris coup, remember you aren’t just fighting a corrupt Democrat Party (and weak Republicans) and their media lackeys you are standing up to the Chinese Communist Party. It is 1776 all over again!

I don’t ask much of anyone, however….
I have 1,339 subscribers to ‘Frauds and Crooks’ and I am asking every one of you to click on the Rumble link (even if you have been able to watch the video on Youtube). Rumbleis Youtube’s competition.
I can tell how many of you click on links and am going to be pretty ticked-off, if you don’t do this. Frankly I will know if spending my time writing this blog is a waste!
