Conservative Leaders Tell Department Of Labor To Pull Our Pension Money Out Of Communist China

“The investment of private retirement funds into Chinese companies that do not comply with basic transparency standards, and in many cases rely upon child- and slave-labor, is incompatible with fundamental American values and must be discontinued.” The repugnant practice of investing U.S. pension funds in Communist China makes unwitting private U.S. retirees investors in Chinese companies which use child- and slave-labor, “effectively making individual 401(k) owners or pensioners parties to and profiteers from the exploitation of the victims of such cruel abuse.”

Will We Pass the Stress Test of a Straining Superpower?

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

The first order of business, we are told, is ending inequality — of income, wealth, educational attainment, and health care. The racial disparity in police arrests, prosecutions, incarcerations, and school expulsions must end. But if the trillions we have spent to address these inequalities since the Great Society days have failed to make greater progress, why should we believe that we even know how to succeed, absent the imposition of a rigid socialist egalitarianism of results? The Old Republic is facing a stress test unlike any it has known since the Union was threatened with dissolution in the Civil War.

Tell Your Governor To Stop Investing State Pension Funds In Communist China

Our friend Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, sent a letter to the Governors of all 50 states demanding that they end the dangerous practice of investing state worker pension funds in Communist Chinese enterprises. We applaud this effort and urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Governor’s office to demand that their state worker pension funds divest themselves of all investments in Communist China.

The Faustian Bargains of the Woke NBA

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The Chinese demand a Faustian bargain from all they make rich in the short term. We are in a new COVID-19 world, where no one believes that China will democratize once it gets rich enough, and China itself has mostly given up on hiding its own agendas. So, given the known Chinese blueprint of foreign investment, assume that once China masters the mechanics and public relations of the sport, the contours of its franchising, and the intricacies of its branding and merchandising, its 1.4 billion people may prefer their own Chinese players, Chinese coaches, Chinese owners — and all of their own newfound Chinese profits.

Is America Up for a Naval War with China?

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

Is America prepared for a naval clash in the South China Sea if Beijing continues to occupy and fortify islets and reefs she claims as her own? Are we prepared for a Cold War II — with China? While China lacks the strategic arsenal the USSR had in the latter years of the Cold War, economically, technologically and industrially, China is a far greater power than Soviet Russia ever was. And China's population is four times as large. Should we start issuing war guarantees to China's neighbors? Should we start putting down red lines China will not be allowed to cross? Have we considered how this all ends?

Locking America Down Again Is Exactly What China Wants Because It Will Ruin Us

Joy Pullman, The Federalist

It is no exaggeration to say that the world’s future depends on the United States acting strategically to counter Chinese propaganda and aims rather than strangling ourselves on lies. Our economy and military sustain the world. The CCP is fighting for its life and its 100-year plan to get us to stay locked down. Keeping freedom alive for the world requires that they don’t win. Key to fighting back is following Sweden and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s successful coronavirus management strategies: End government lockdowns, and allow American citizens to act on their own judgments about coronavirus risks.

Trump’s Road to Victory Is Through China

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

China, at this time, is an adversary far greater and ultimately more threatening than even the Soviet Union in its heyday. They have infiltrated our finest educational institutions to an astonishing degree that we are only beginning to understand. In a very real way, they have been propagandizing us for years with the acquiescence of officials of our greatest universities. We have all been lied to about China again and again and again. The president must make that one hundred percent clear to the American public that has been brainwashed by a media that will say anything that would aid in his defeat.

Wall Street A New Front In The Cold War With Red China

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call the White House (202-456-1111) to demand that the President use his executive authority to prohibit companies owned or controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, the Red Chinese government, the People’s Liberation Army of China and other Chinese military and intelligence entities from accessing U.S. capital markets.

Hey, Black Lives Matter: Do You Really Want China to Run the World?

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

African-Americans whose ancestors were brought here in chains have every reason for rancor against the West. There are two possible outcomes for the 21st century. Either world leadership remains with the U.S.–which forced the liquidation of the great Euorpean empires and stood godfather to the independence of former colonies–or it passes to China. To China, black lives don’t matter. Not at all. The West was founded on the principle of universal human dignity. Whatever its sins, lapses and hypocrisy, this principle is the core DNA of the West. Think about it, BLM. You won’t like the alternataive.

Can We Coexist with Asia's Communists?

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

What the Chinese seem to be saying with their actions — against India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Taiwan, Australia, Hong Kong and Japan — is this: Your American friends and allies are yesterday. We are tomorrow. No one should want a hot war, or a new cold war, with China or North Korea. But if Trump was relying on his relationships, his trade deal with China and his commitment by Kim to give up weapons for recognition, trade and aid, he will have to think again. For the foreseeable future, Communist bellicosity out of Beijing and Pyongyang seem in the cards, if not worse.

Hiding COVID-19's Origins

Betsy McCaughey, New York Post

China is determined to block investigations of where COVID-19 came from. But worse, influential American scientists are going along with censoring any inquiry. They're declaring their "solidarity with the scientists and health professionals of China." Promising leads need to be investigated further, but instead, they are being denounced as "conspiracy theories." Not just by the Chinese Communist Party, too. What we know is the virus was spreading months before China disclosed it and did not originate in Wuhan, contrary to China's original claim. Now we need to search for the uncensored truth.

Our Elites Suffer From China Envy

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Who benefits from our national nervous breakdown? It is the globalist elites who still govern most of our society today, despite the invasion of Donald Trump. And those elites wish to continue that rule through what they fervently hope will come as the outcome of these demonstrations—more government control, particularly government control that helps them. They have seen it done elsewhere with results they might want to emulate. Call it China Envy. In macro, that is the landscape of election 2020—the globalist elites represented by Joe Biden versus the American people, represented by Donald Trump.

Beijing Biden Attacks Trump On China

According to research posted on the BeijingBiden.com website, since 1979, Joe Biden has been a key supporter and enabler of Communist China; a fact he often brags about and highlights in interviews and speeches, seemingly oblivious to the economic damage his positions have inflicted on America and American Workers. And now, Beijing Biden has the gall to attack Donald Trump as being weak on China.

India Battles Communist Chinese Expansion In Remote Himalayan Valley

India shares a long border with southern and western China and controls important territorial waters Beijing needs for its maritime trade routes. India is the world’s most populous democracy and India is now on the front lines of containing Communist China’s expansion in the Indo-Pacific. If President Trump’s plan to box in Communist China is to have any effect, the remote Galwan valley in the Himalayas is where it may first be tested.

James Hooley: China’s raid on the Tongass National Forest chops American jobs and profits

James Hooley, Assistant to President Ronald Reagan, and a Senior Political Advisor to President George H.W. Bush and Senator Robert Dole, makes the case that expanded logging in the Tongass National Forest will benefit the Chinese economy to the detriment of American small businesses, workers and taxpayers.

China Isn't Letting a Pandemic Go to Waste

Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media

China is not wasting the disaster of the Wuhan outbreak. It once gained a lot by faking friendliness, but now it seems to think it has no choice but to get even more by being authentically belligerent. China no longer flatters the West in passive-aggressive fashion, but rather shows its disdain for a weak Europe and an increasingly divided U.S. China’s real message to a fence-sitting world? While America tears itself apart with internal quarreling and media psychodramas, while Europe appeases its enemies, and while the rest of Asia stays mute, waiting to see who wins, China is now on the move — without apologies.

'Woke' Capitalists Sell Out U.S. to China Behind a Mask of Virtue

Ben Weingarten, Real Clear Politics

Embedded in the ESG (environment, social, and governance)-China gambit is an acceptance of the proposition that America is in decline, while China is ascendant. This becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy if Wall Street is intent on downgrading America’s economy, while upgrading China’s. What we see in Wall Street’s devotion to China is the proverbial capitalists selling the Communists the rope with which to hang us. Or, if you will, underwriting the outsourced rope-maker that produces the rope with which to hang ourselves. “ESG for me, but not for thee” is a recipe for undermining America while empowering its worst adversaries.

This Election Is Republicans v. China – Oops, I Mean Democrats

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The Democratic Party has a long tradition of hating the United States. Its goal for the last half-century has been to supervise the decline of America as a world power, and the fact that the Chinese communists take good care of their friends makes it easier. There is zero doubt that the Chinese government is already all-in on a Biden puppet presidency because it knows it can rely on him and Dems to place Xi’s interests ahead of America's. They’ll deny it, of course. But here’s the hard and indisputable truth: This November, you can vote for the Republican Party, or you can vote Chinese Communist Party under another name.

Trump Executive Order Strikes At The Heart Of Social Media’s Leftist Censorship

President Trump’s Executive Order puts the Trump administration squarely behind our interpretation of Section 230 platform immunity: By making itself an editor of content, such a provider forfeits any protections from being deemed a "publisher or speaker" under subsection 230 (c) (1), which properly applies only to a provider that merely provides a platform for content supplied by others.

Jinping Takes Up the US Challenge

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

To warnings that China is risking Cold War II, Beijing seems to be responding: If a Cold War with the United States is the price of securing our strategic interests and position in Asia and the world, bring it on. Beijing has put the ball in America's court. The Chinese have stolen our intellectual property, coerced technology transfers from our businesses, and sent spies posing as students into our universities to thieve our secrets. Meanwhile, we allowed ourselves to become dependent on China for medicines and drugs vital to the health and survival of millions of Americans. Who did this to us? We did it to ourselves.
