Original Article

As President Joe Biden was sworn into office, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) imposed sanctions on former Trump administration officials, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former national security adviser Robert O’Brien, in response to their tough-on-China policies. The announcement came a day after Pompeo declared the CCP’s repression of Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang region a “genocide.” The Chinese regime sanctioned 28 people on Jan. 20. A foreign ministry spokesperson accused them of “seriously violated China’s sovereignty,” adding that they were “responsible” for “a series of crazy moves” which “seriously disrupted China-U.S. relations.”

Comments:

They must be strong against China, which has intentionally fostered softness toward them among American lawmakers, business leaders and media. They have weaseled their way in. Per their plan called “The Hundred-Year Marathon” ..see Michael Pillsbury’s book by the same name.

This is the most telling news of the whole election cycle. THIS IS A WARNING TO OUR FRIENDS AND ALLIES. China now controls American trade policy and it was done TODAY! TRUMP was right again. China cannot be trusted in anymway especially on trade. China supports Biden and Democrats think that’s great. The American people are so naive. The long term consequences of this are not to be underestimated for our economy, our military, our influence in the world and the security of our allies in Asia. Japan and Korea should be be very worried. And they tried to impeach TRUMP for collusion with Russia. Seems like Biden is already building an impeachment case against himself.

The Biden administration is off to a shaky start with the Republican-led State of Texas. Yesterday as President Biden stopped to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wished the country well and included a warning. In a tweet, Paxton promised to see the Biden administration in court… frequently. Paxton is upholding a Texas tradition. The current governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, was Texas Attorney General during the Obama administration and famously said of his job, “I go into the office, I sue the federal government and I go home.” Ken Paxton’s office has continued with lawsuits against Obama-era policies.
How Long Before Biden’s Executive Orders
Are Met With Nationwide Injunctions?

Joe Biden has been busy signing executive orders yesterday and today. During the Trump era, Democrats streamlined a process of blocking Trump’s executive orders through national injunctions. Here’s how it worked: State Attorneys General from left-leaning states would file lawsuits in friendly courts where left-leaning and judges would promptly issue injunctions that applied to everyone. This started with an injunction shutting down Trump’s ban on entry for certain countries which became known as the “Muslim ban.” Trump revised that executive order but that too was met with a nationwide injunction. When Trump tried to limit funds going to “sanctuary cities” that was met with a nationwide injunction.

Scientists are reporting troubling signs that some recent mutations of the virus that causes COVID-19 may modestly curb the effectiveness of two current vaccines, although they stress that the shots still protect against the disease. Researchers expressed concern Wednesday about the preliminary findings, in large part because they suggest that future mutations could undermine vaccines. (Snip One way vaccines work is to prompt the immune system to make antibodies that block the virus from infecting cells. The Rockefeller researchers got blood samples from 20 people who had received either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine and tested their antibodies against various virus mutations in the lab.

Over 325 academics and scientists in Australian universities and research institutes have been identified as alleged recruits of Beijing’s controversial overseas talent-recruitment programs. The allegations raise questions over potential conflicts of interest, grant fraud, and Australian research funds inadvertently advancing the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) military technology. Alex Joske of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), wrote to the Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security claiming that despite 325 individuals being identified, as many as 600 could be connected to Beijing-backed partnerships. (Snip)“Recruits are encouraged to transfer technology to China and commercialise it, including technologies with military and security applications,” Joske wrote in his parliamentary submission (pdf).

President Joe Biden plans to cancel the Trump administration’s 1776 Commission, only two days after the advisory panel released a report calling for a U.S. history education centered on the nation’s founding principles.

Cheney drew widespread criticism for voting with Democrats and nine other Republicans last week to impeach then-President Donald Trump. “Wyoming was President Trump’s best state both times he ran. That’s because Wyoming voters are strong conservatives who want our leaders to stand up for America, defend our freedoms, fight for our way of life and always put working people first as President Trump did,” Bouchard said in a statement Wednesday.

Jaw-dropping contempt for Trump and

It is sad, but perhaps inevitable that contemptuous, raw class hatred for Trump voters would be featured so prominently in the National Review almost immediately after the swearing-in of Joe Biden yesterday. National Review, after all, produced the infamous “Against Trump” issue in January 2016, assembling conservatives from many publications in an effort to derail the nomination of the man who became our 45th president. The chief complaints about Trump centered on style… and class. But graciousness in victory apparently is not an element of civility that appeals to Kevin Williamson, a talented wordsmith and star at what was once the flagship publication of the conservative movement.
