DNI John Ratcliffe: China Using Blackmail, Covert Influence to Target Members of Congress”
Verse of the Day
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. (21) But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
CHINA OWNS USA POLITICIANS
“Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Thursday told CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge that the communist Chinese government is using blackmail, bribery, and covert operations to target lawmakers on Capitol Hill as part of a broad effort to influence policymaking.
COMMUNISTS ARE COMMUNISTS
“By 2003, opponents of Chávez managed to collect enough signatures to trigger a referendum. “That’s when he started to panic,” the former intelligence official—who is also an expert in Latin American politics and counterterrorism—told The Epoch Times. “So he started talking to a company called Indra, which is a Spanish company that runs elections.”
The technology used by Indra at that time, according to the expert, wasn’t “flexible” enough to do what Chávez wanted to do. He said that the regime then turned to Smartmatic, a company registered in Delaware and founded by three young Venezuelan engineers. After receiving a contract for $150 million to overhaul the country’s election system ahead of the 2004 referendum, Smartmatic bought machines from Italian lottery machine maker Olivetti.”
COMMUNISTS VS PATRIOTS
“”It is in this stage when there are bad financial conditions and intensifying conflict,” wrote Dalio. “Classically this stage comes after periods of great excesses in spending and debt and the widening of wealth and political gaps and before there are revolutions and civil wars. United States is at a tipping point in which it could go from manageable internal tension to revolution and/or civil war.”
THREE BLIND MICE IN GEORGIA
“We’ve never found systemic fraud, not enough to overturn the election. We have over 250 cases right now. We reached out to the governor and asked for additional manpower resources that gives us additional reach to finish up these investigations quickly, but right now, we don’t see anything that would overturn the will of the people here, Georgia.”
He added, “I’m a Republican. I vote for Republicans. So I wish them well. The job of the Republican Party is to raise money and turn out the vote. My job as secretary of state is to make sure we have honest and fair elections. It’s as simple as that, and integrity matters.”
COLLAPSE OF GEORGIA GOP AND GOVERNMENT
“Georgia election official Gabriel Sterling on Sunday during MSNBC’s “Meet the Press” called President Donald Trump’s claims of voter fraud in the state’s 2020 presidential election “misinformation.”It i s very, very clear the entire Georgia Republican establishment is corrupt and must be removed. We see the fraudulent votes being added with our eyes with all the electronic switching, and yet these lying corrupt politicians try and blame President Trump.The time is very close for the American Patriots to end this corruption and start a new party. The sleaze is right before our eyes. I’ll venture to say, they’re all bribed or blackmailed by the Chinese Communist. Does China now control all the Dems and most of the Republicans?
Sterling publicly asked Trump to denounce the threats being made against election workers for doing their jobs. Sterling said, “At this point it’s like Whac-a-Mole even saying the president’s statements are false, they’re misinformation. They are stoking anger and fear among his supporters, and hell, I voted for him. And the situation’s getting much worse.”
He added, “It’s not just Republicans on this side this time. Even in polling up to 2019, up to 50 percent of Democrats think Russians flipped votes on machines. So this is going both ways. It’s undermining democracy, and we’ve got to get to a point where responsible people act responsibly.”
GA REPUBLICANS SURRENDERED TO THE COMMUNISTS
“Duncan said, “The rally last night was kind of a two-part message. The first part was very encouraging to listen to the president champion the conservative strategies of Senators Loeffler and Perdue and the importance for them being re-elected.”
He added, “The second message was concerning to me. I think the fanning of the flames puts us in negative misinformation. Mountains of misinformation are not helping the process but only hurting it. I worry we are handing off a playbook to the Democrats for January 5, and certainly I can’t think of a worse playbook to handoff over the last four or five weeks to the Democrats.”
RINOS CONTINUE TO MANIFEST
“Cassidy said, “The president in effect has conceded when he ordered the General Services Administration to begin the transition. So if by damaging or democracy, you mean that the next administration won’t be prepared, that preparation is taking place. Now, if you want to speak about how things are undermined, I think the president — by the way, if there’s fraud, it should be uncovered, but it should be uncovered in a way which a judge agrees.If the president is able to show that, then that’s important. If they can’t show, that’s also important. I’m hoping the American people would look and say proven in a court of law, no, the court of law threw it out and use that to base their faith in how the elections go.”
ISRAEL HATING DEMS
“In response to Tlaib’s recent participation in an anti-Israel conference with purported terrorist ties as well having recently retweeted a slogan calling for the elimination of the Jewish State, the Western Pennsylvania Republican sought to garner support from fellow congressmen for his proposal.
“This week, Democrat Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib participated in a forum led by one of the nation’s most anti-Israel advocacy groups that featured other participants with reported connections to Hamas, terrorism financiers, and the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement,” the statement reads.”
PROLIFE GOOD NEWS
“A new report by a pro-choice organization has drawn opposite reactions along the abortion divide by showing that dozens of independent abortion clinics have closed in the past five years.
The 18-page report by the Abortion Care Network says 127 independent abortion clinics have closed since 2015, including at least 14 this year and 27 in 2019. The Network is an association of independent, community-based abortion providers.
Nearly three-fifths (58 percent) of abortions in the U.S. are performed by independent abortion clinics, according to the report. Planned Parenthood performs 37 percent of the nation’s abortions, the report says.”
WORLD WAR 3: CHINA
“As Chinese military activity around Taiwan continues to ramp up, a senior administration official tells me, “We are watching very closely and would be ready for anything including a grave miscalculation by the PRC. We’re definitely watching them.”
He added at a moment Trump continues to chip away at Beijing through a series of unprecedented ‘blacklisting’ measures, as well as new visa restrictions against Communist Party members and their families (which includes tens of millions of Chinese citizens total) that American defense officials think geopolitical flashpoints involving Chinese ‘aggression’ are about to boil over.
“Sooner or later they’re willing to push things to a boiling point over Taiwan as they did in Hong Kong and on border with India,” the official is cited further as saying to CNN’s Sciutto. “It’s coming.”
OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM
“One of Jerusalem’s most iconic sites is the Tower of David at the entrance of the Old City. This ancient citadel is getting its first major overhaul in hundreds of years.
“This is a rare and unique opportunity for archaeologists because we have a lot of questions about the citadel, archaeological questions, historical questions and not every day you get the chance to explore a symbol in Jerusalem,” Amit Re’em, Jerusalem’s Chief Archeologist told CBN News. “The [Tower of David Museum] is a symbol. This is the struggle of Jerusalem.”
