Let’s Remove All Evidence That Barack Obama, Martin Luther King Jr. And JFK Ever Existed

12 06 2020

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—has written:

On Gen. George Washington’s orders, the Declaration of Independence, signed in Philadelphia, was read aloud to his army. On hearing it, the troops marched to Bowling Green, decapitated and pulled down the statue of George III, and sent the remnants to be melted down into musket balls.

It was a revolutionary act, a symbolic statement. These once-loyal American subjects were now rebels and no longer owed allegiance to the king. They would fight to end his rule in America.

During the recent demonstrations and disorders here, similar acts had about them an aspect of societal rebellion and a repudiation of a heritage.

In Richmond, Virginia, a statue of Christopher Columbus, who generations of American children were raised to revere as the intrepid Italian explorer who discovered the New World, was pulled down and thrown into a lake.

In Boston, the Columbus statue was beheaded.

In a half-dozen states, statues of Confederate generals and soldiers were pulled down. Gov. Ralph Northam promises to remove the huge statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson from their century-old places of honor on Richmond’s Monument Avenue.

In Philadelphia, the statue of fabled Italian American cop, police commissioner and mayor, Frank Rizzo, was desecrated and hauled away.

Retired Gen. David Petraeus has written to urge that all army bases bearing the names of Confederate generals, such as Forts Benning, Bragg and Hood, be renamed. Robert E. Lee, who is everywhere at West Point, says Petraeus, was a U.S. soldier who “committed treason.”

Nancy Pelosi wants 11 statues, including those of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephens, and Sen. and U.S. Vice President John Calhoun, removed from the Capitol.

The purge of historical figures has spread to Europe.

The giant statue of King Leopold II in Brussels, who was enriched by the brutalitarian plundering of his Congo colony, has been taken down.

In Bristol, England, a statue of Edward Colston, philanthropist and patron of the city but also a slave trader, was thrown into the harbor.

At Oxford, students are moving to take down the statue of Cecil Rhodes, the archimperialist and founding father of Rhodesia who created as his legacy the Rhodes scholarships for British and American students.

Resumes of all the once-admired great men who discovered, explored and colonized the New World, as well as all those who created and first led the United States, are being investigated to determine how egregiously these men violated the egalitarian and democratist dogmas of modernity.

The list of malefactors seems impressive.

Who are we talking about?

Nearly half of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were slave owners. So, too, were five of our first seven presidents and two of the four men on Mount Rushmore.

George Washington won the war for independence. Thomas Jefferson doubled the size of the nation with the Louisiana Purchase. Andrew Jackson saved the nation from defeat by the British at the Battle of New Orleans and seized Florida. James Polk took us to war with Mexico and relieved it of what is now the American Southwest and California.

All four of these nation-builder presidents were slave owners.

The systematic dishonoring and disgracing of men once revered has only just begun. But it represents a spreading revolution in thought and belief about the origins and history of America.

How far is this going?

During the London protests in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, there was painted on the Parliament Square statue of Winston Churchill, who historians voted “the greatest man of the 20th century” for his role in leading Britain against Nazi Germany, the word “racist.” The mob wanted Churchill’s statue down.

And was Churchill a racist?

Surely, he was an archimperialist, a lifelong defender of the British Empire who believed in the supremacy of the Anglo-Saxon race and its right to rule what poet Rudyard Kipling called “the lesser breeds without the law.”

Churchill disparaged people of color whom the British ruled, from the Caribbean to Africa, to the Middle and Near East, to South Asia and the Far East, in terms that would instantly end the career of any American or British politician who used them today.

Historian Andrew Roberts writes of Churchill that he was a “white … supremacist (who) thought in terms of race to a degree that was remarkable even by the standards of his own time. He spoke of certain races with a virulent Anglo-Saxon triumphalism.”

Many Americans, especially among the young, view the history of the European exploration, the colonization of the New World, and the creation of Western empires not with pride but with shame and guilt. And they want to make expiation by canceling out all the honors accorded such men, be it in statues or the names of cities, towns, parks and streets.

And their numbers and militancy are growing. The left has the bit in its teeth and is dragging the panicked elites along.

How this ends without permanent division in the country escapes me.[2]

This is the legacy that the despicable un-American racist and anti-Semite Barack Obama bequeathed to our great nation.  If anyone has any doubts whatsoever, please read his book “Dreams from My Father.”[3]  It is all there, in his own words, which will live on in history.  

He was and is the greatest racist in U.S. history—who set in motion the efforts to destroy the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump, which is treason and punishable by death.  At the very least, Obama should be in prison for the rest of his life.[4]

By the same token, neither were Martin Luther King Jr. nor John F. Kennedy heroes.[5]  Quite to the contrary, their names should be removed from monuments, streets and any other places of honor; and their memories should be of shame throughout history.  Nothing less will suffice.

History is being destroyed by the “Black Lives Matter” and Antifa thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels, as well as their student lackeys (who are products of America’s Leftist educational system), and by their “fellow travelers” and others on the despicable Left, which must be crushed.[6]  They are targeting law enforcement, which must be met by mass arrests.[7]

This is not about race.  It’s about the Left destroying America.  And yes, lots of us began as Democrats, but will never vote for one again.  They have gone off the rails completely, and have become unbridled anarchists.

The War On Cops

9 06 2020

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—has written:

Newly painted in huge yellow letters on 16th Street, just north of the White House, is the slogan: “Defund the Police.”

That new message sits beside the “Black Lives Matter” slogan, also in huge letters, painted there at the direction of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.

She renamed that section of 16th Street “Black Lives Matter Plaza.”

Still, the messages are less ominous than the chants of protesters in New York after the takedown that resulted in the death of Eric Garner.

Protesters then chanted of the NYPD: “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now!”

While this sudden campaign to defund and dismantle city police forces seems an absurdity, it is actually part of a thought-out radical program that has gained momentum since the sadistic public execution of George Floyd in Minneapolis two weeks ago.

Consider. On Sunday, nine members of the city council, a veto-proof majority, voted to disband the Minneapolis police department. Asked if he would support the council decision, Mayor Jacob Frey hedged, “I do not support the full abolition of the police.”

As the crowd jeered and booed, the mayor walked away alone.

The idea of defunding police departments has caught fire, and liberal politicians are scrambling to get in front of their radical constituents. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has announced that he will reallocate up to $150 million from the LAPD budget to social programs.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio says he will be transferring $1 billion: “We will be moving funding from the NYPD to youth initiatives and social services.”

In two weeks, there has been a sea change in attitudes toward police, with not a few coming to share the hard left’s hatred. While the criminal elements burned cop cars and showered police with bottles, rocks and bricks, even “peaceful protesters” were calling the police fascists and racists.

Two decades ago, the NYPD were celebrated “first responders” who ran toward the collapsing twin towers, many never to come back. Funerals of the cop heroes were televised. Those days are gone.

Indeed, after two weeks of seeing police decried on nightly TV as racist oppressors of African Americans, cops must realize that they are reviled and detested by some of the countrymen they have sworn to protect.

What will happen now is predictable, as it has happened before.

To pander to the militants on the left, liberal politicians will devise new restrictions on cops and more severe punishments for infractions, treating the police as potential threats to civil and constitutional rights.

The “Ferguson Effect” will take hold. Cops will back off from confronting the lawless and violent. Criminals will see an opening to seize opportunities. The urban poor who look to the police as their only protection will stay inside and lock their doors. And small businesses, realizing the cops may not be there, will sell and move out.

Where is this leading?

According to former New York City Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik, not only did New York law enforcement officers suffer many injuries in the riots, hundreds of cops, seeing how they are regarded and were treated by many whom they protect, are preparing to leave the NYPD.

As the Democrats’ “police reform” bill is debated on the Hill, Republicans will largely stand with the police and Attorney General William Barr, who said Sunday that while there is racism in America, there is no “systemic racism” in the nation’s police departments.

If there were, it would be an indictment of the Democrats, who have run most of our great cities for decades.

As it rises in prominence, the issue of defunding police will divide the Democratic Party more than the GOP.

For while the hard left sees cops in ideological and class terms as racist and fascist, the right, by and large, sees the police as the last line of defense against the anarchy we saw erupt when there were not enough cops in New York and D.C. to control the mobs looting Fifth Avenue and Georgetown.

And this, too, is likely to become a forever war in America. For it is almost inevitable that we are going to see more violent collisions between white cops and black suspects, collisions that result in deaths.

For every large urban police force has daily encounters with black male criminals, who commit a disproportionate number of violent crimes. Some will end with dead cops, and the others with dead criminals.

President Donald Trump has taken his stand with the police.

It is Joe Biden who has the problem. For while Democratic mayors are unlikely to join a campaign to abolish their police forces, Biden is going to have to tell his Bernie Bro and socialist constituents that their ideas for getting rid of police departments are ridiculous.

Monday, Joe made a start. He said that defunding cops is off the table.[2]

Next, Walter E. Williams—a professor of economics at George Mason University in Northern Virginia, and an alumnus of my alma mater, UCLA—has written in the Toronto Sun:

While it might not be popular to say in the wake of the recent social disorder, the true plight of black people has little or nothing to do with the police or what has been called “systemic racism.” Instead, we need to look at the responsibilities of those running our big cities.

Some of the most dangerous big cities are: St. Louis, Detroit, Baltimore, Oakland, Chicago, Memphis, Atlanta, Birmingham, Newark, Buffalo and Philadelphia. The most common characteristic of these cities is that for decades, all of them have been run by liberal Democrats. Some cities — such as Detroit, Buffalo, Newark and Philadelphia — haven’t elected a Republican mayor for more than a half-century. On top of this, in many of these cities, blacks are mayors, often they dominate city councils, and they are chiefs of police and superintendents of schools.

In 1965, there were no blacks in the U.S. Senate, nor were there any black governors. And only six members of the House of Representatives were black. As of 2019, there is far greater representation in some areas — 52 House members are black. Nine black Americans have served in the Senate, including Edward W. Brooke of Massachusetts, Carol Moseley Braun and Barack Obama of Illinois, Tim Scott of South Carolina, Cory Booker of New Jersey, and Kamala Harris of California. In recent times, there have been three black state governors. The bottom line is that today’s black Americans have significant political power at all levels of government. Yet, what has that meant for a large segment of the black population?

Democratic-controlled cities have the poorest-quality public education despite their large, and growing, school budgets. Consider Baltimore, Maryland. In 2016, in 13 of Baltimore’s 39 high schools, not a single student scored proficient on the state’s math exam. In six other high schools, only 1% tested proficient in math. Only 15% of Baltimore students passed the state’s English test. That same year in Philadelphia only 19% of eighth-graders scored proficient in math, and 16% were proficient in reading. In Detroit, only 4% of its eighth-graders scored proficient in math, and 7% were proficient in reading. It’s the same story of academic disaster in other cities run by Democrats.

Violent crime and poor education is not the only problem for Democratic-controlled cities. Because of high crime, poor schools and a less pleasant environment, cities are losing their economic base and their most productive people in droves. When the Second World War ended, the population of Washington, D.C., was about 800,000; today, it’s about 700,000. In 1950, Baltimore’s population was almost 950,000; today, it’s around 590,000. Detroit’s 1950 population was close to 1.85 million; today, it’s down to 673,000. The population of Camden, New Jersey, in 1950 was nearly 125,000; today it has fallen to 74,000. St. Louis’ 1950 population was more than 856,000; today, it’s less than 294,000. A similar story of population decline can be found in most of our formerly large and prosperous cities. In some cities, the population decline since 1950 is well over 50%, and that includes Detroit, St. Louis, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

Academic liberals, civil rights advocates and others blamed the exodus on racism — “white flight” to the suburbs to avoid blacks. But blacks have been fleeing some cities at higher rates than whites. The five cities whose suburbs have the fastest-growing black populations are Miami, Dallas, Washington, Houston and Atlanta. It turns out that blacks, like whites, want better and safer schools for their kids and don’t like to be mugged or have their property vandalized. And like white people, if they have the means, black people cannot wait to leave troubled cities.

White liberals and black politicians focus most of their attention on what the police do, but how relevant is that to the overall tragedy? According to Statista, this year, 172 whites and 88 blacks have died at the hands of police. To put police shootings in a bit of perspective, in Chicago alone in 2020 there have been 1,260 shootings and 256 homicides with blacks being the primary victims. That comes to one shooting victim every three hours and one homicide victim every 15 hours. Three people in Chicago have been killed by police. If one is truly concerned about black deaths, shootings by police should figure way down on one’s list — which is not to excuse bad behaviour by some police officers.[3]

First, the latest polling shows black voter approval for President Trump rising to 41 percent.[4]  There are multiple reasons for this, among them being the recognition by America’s blacks that black-on-black crimes have reached epidemic proportions, especially in our cities and targeting elderly blacks, and elderly black women in particular who are terrified and have been for decades.

Second, I investigated complaints of police brutality in the Watts area of Los Angeles, during the summer before the riots erupted there.  There is no doubt in my mind that many of the accusations were real.  Riots have occurred around the nation and world in subsequent years, including those spawned by the death of George Floyd.  What is the common thread that runs through all of them, or so I believe: they have accomplished nothing positive or of lasting value.

Third, as I have written previously:

[W]ith so many rioters massed together and zero “social distancing” taking place, how many will catch and/or spread the deadly Coronavirus? There is no vaccine, and many will die, of all ages.

Lots of them may be high school and college students who are out of school because of the lockdowns, and bored. Thus, they have joined the thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels as an “adventure,” not realizing fully the price that these lackeys (who are products of America’s Leftist educational system) might pay.

Patty Hearst did something similar years ago, but was “bailed out” by her wealthy family.[5]

Fourth, America’s law enforcement and its military preserve order and protect all of us—blacks,  whites, Asians, Christians, Jews, atheists and others—from those who would seek to destroy our great nation and its heritage.  Abraham Lincoln understood this, and he gave his life to preserve our Union and, yes, to destroy slavery.[6]

Lastly, the police have been under siege in the United States and other countries for decades.  Perhaps they are hated more today because they have been viciously targeted, just as they are accused of targeting blacks.  Forgotten is their heroism in the wake of 9/11.  Or more likely, it is the goal of the thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels to destroy American history and the very fabric of our great nation under God—which is consistent with the defacing and destruction of our monuments, places of worship and revisionist history.[7]

I Tore Down My First Black Lives Matter Sign Today

7 06 2020

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

And it felt good.

Then, I tore down another one, and another one, and another.

No, I don’t have any shame about doing it.  And no too, it was not an act of courage, nor do I feel the slightest twinge of guilt or remorse about having done so.  But it was the first time that I had done anything like it.

The “sign” was printed on single sheet of white typewriter paper, which someone had affixed to the door of a men’s room with plastic tape.  To put it bluntly, I am angry that anyone would have the gall to lecture me, much less when I am about to do my business.

The other signs were duplicates of the first one, which had been posted not far away.  I was angry each time that I saw them—especially when the looters who hit stores in Los Angeles explained what they did: “Get my portion!”[2]  

Just like the earlier riots spawned by thugs and other low-lifes—which achieved nothing at all, except to increase discrimination and anarchy—the latest ones are likely to die similar ignominious deaths.

. . .

The retired football player Drew Brees is telling Americans that it’s all right to disrespect our flag and national anthem.[3]  NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell effectively said the same thing, in supporting Colin Kaepernick’s right to take a knee when the anthem is played at games.[4] No team will hire him; Brees’ legacy and reputation are shot; and increasing numbers of Americans will boycott the NFL in the future.

And the latest polling shows black voter approval for President Trump rising to 41 percent.[5]

. . .

As if this was not enough, there’s an overweight black homeless man in a white hoodie at the entrance to a swim center here, which has been closed for months because of the deadly Coronavirus that China launched[6].  Needless to say, none of the rioters are helping him.

Of course black lives matter, each and every one of them. This is true even with respect to the vicious racist thugs, slugs and hoods.  Jesus taught us this.  But we do not have to tolerate their violence—or God-awful gangsta rap “music”—ever.

. . .

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, today is D-Day, the 76th anniversary of the Normandy landings on the coast of France on June 6, 1944, which began the efforts to destroy Adolf Hitler, his Nazi regime, and end his dreams of a “Thousand Year Reich.”[7]  Yet, instead of celebrating this turning point in history, American thugs, slugs and hoods have focused attention on George Floyd, a drug abuser who was killed in the process of resisting his arrest.  How obscene.  How truly grotesque and obscene.

Lots Of Americans Are Very Angry

4 06 2020

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

They see black thugs, slugs and hoods igniting a firestorm of violence in cities and small towns across our great nation.  They see members of law enforcement being injured and, in some cases, killed trying to do their jobs of defending law and order.[2]  They see a repeat of every senseless riot in America since Watts erupted in Los Angeles during the summer of 1965.

They see black-on-black crimes being trivialized if not ignored completely, even though elderly blacks have been terrified of the young thugs (or their predecessors) for decades.  This is especially true of elderly black women who have been victimized, instead of being treated with the love and respect that they have earned and so richly deserve.[3]  Many have struggled to keep their families together, after their spouses or partners left.  Their “reward” has been a life of fear, when they should be enjoying their “golden years.”

They see the Lincoln Memorial in our nation’s capital being defaced when Abraham Lincoln and his generals, Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman, defeated the South and freed the slaves and saved the nation.[4]  They see the Democratic Party demagoguing these issues, even though it is the “father” of slavery, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and segregation. Indeed, former Democratic President Lyndon Johnson’s singular accomplishment in office—other than escalating John F. Kennedy’s Vietnam War[5]—was his “Great Society” welfare program. It broke up or crippled black families, and made them dependent on the Federal Government’s largesse, effectively enslaving them economically to this day.[6]

Other Americans are angry because they see a continuation of racial injustices. Many realize that America’s blacks have been and continue to be at the bottom of our economic totem pole. Even though they constitute less than 13 percent of America’s population[7], while Hispanic and Latino Americans number more than 18 percent[8], many non-black Americans empathize with their plight because of the color of their skin. “White Americans” constitute more than 75 percent of the U.S. population, including “White Hispanics.”[9]

However one slices and dices it, black Americans stand out—and are alone.  Factor in the lack of education and job skills for the thugs, and there is a recipe for disaster, discrimination and pent-up anger, just waiting to be released and unleashed.  Then throw in the effects of lockdowns and worries about the Coronavirus, and the personal dislike of President Trump by America’s Left, and we have the riots.  “Social distancing” be damned, these people want to riot and they are determined to do so.

They must be put down like rabid animals, just like the South was put down viciously, never to rise again.  Indeed, many educated blacks reject the rioters’ tactics and actions.  Among other reasons, often left unsaid, is that the thugs increase discrimination, which no amount of rioting or even rational thinking can avert.  Human beings have discriminated since the beginning of time; and this type of discrimination never seems to go away, and perhaps it never will. 

Lastly, it is important to share the following statement by Thomas D. Klingenstein and Ryan P. Williams—Chairman and President, respectively—of the Claremont Institute in California:

The pretext for this entire nationwide riot is that America is a racist country.  That is not true.  America is not a racist country.  America is a country that has strived, imperfectly but passionately, to live up to its founding promise that all men are created equal.  There is not—and will never be—a greater barrier to racism, or to tyranny in any form, than this American idea.  

The reckless charge that American law enforcement is “systemically racist” is also not true.  As with any large organization of men wielding power, some will abuse that power.  But police do not systematically target innocents—either by race or any other criteria.  Any fair-minded review of the available data demonstrates that.   

Why is it that so many of our citizens believe that America is racist to its core?  Because this lie has been preached by our universities and media like the Gospel for a generation.  From there it has traveled throughout society, particularly among the elite.  Even most leaders on the Right are unwilling to refute this destructive untruth.  In failing to do so, they promote the falsehood, the riots that it has engendered, and ultimately America’s destruction.  This is to say, the riots are the handiwork of the elite.  A country that has been taught it is ignoble will not defend itself against its enemies, domestic or foreign.  

As we see written in flames in these riots and hear in all the commentary on them, the great divide in America is between those who believe that America is evil and needs to be destroyed, and those who believe that America is good and needs to be preserved.  A version of that question is what the 2016 elections were about, and what the elections in 2020 will be about.  The nation has a party devoted to transforming the American way of life; it needs a party devoted to preserving the American way of life.

America must have a full accounting of how the riots happened, who made them happen, and who let them happen.  Those in power must be held to account.  Most fundamentally, the lies that have been the core curriculum of American education must be replaced with the truth.  The only way America can survive is as a united country dedicated to living out the true meaning of its creed.  The elite want to rob us of that future.  The rest of us should pledge our lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to stopping them.[10]

Truer words were never spoken, or written.  We are blessed with a great and gallant nation, unsurpassed anywhere in the world, which is why it is the target of so many.  They must be put down and defeated.  Otherwise, the heroic efforts of so many—not the least of them being Abraham Lincoln—will have been in vain.

History Repeats Itself: Thugs Riot In America

2 06 2020

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Much is being made by America’s Left about how George Floyd died, and whether undue police brutality was involved.  There are competing claims in terms of the official autopsy report, and another version commissioned by his family.[2]  All of that is well and good; and the issues need to be put to rest, if that is possible.

The overriding issues, however, are the riots that followed.  They were and are lawless, criminal acts; and they are consistent with earlier acts of mob violence that began in my lifetime with the Watts Riots in Los Angeles.[3]  Put succinctly, the thugs and miscreants who have rioted need to be put down like a pack of rabid animals.  They harken back to the barbarian Mongol hordes that swept across Asia, bringing death, destruction and anarchy with them.[4]

The American thugs have defaced the Lincoln Memorial and other monuments, which underscores the fact that they are ignorant and have no sense of history—and they do not care.  Abraham Lincoln ended slavery and saved the Union.  The ancestors of today’s Democrats and other Leftists brought slavery to America, and perpetuated it with the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and segregation.  Thus, how ignorant these thugs and yes, “animals” are today.

The question facing Americans now and in the future is whether they want to be ruled by rogue gangs of savages—or their Leftist, Democratic Party surrogates—much less in the midst of the deadly Coronavirus?[5]  Will the thugs catch the virus?  After all, it has been reported that 4,000 of them are in jails, which are incubators for the virus.  Clearly they have not been “social distancing” during their anarchy; and presumably they will not be doing so in the jails and prisons of our land.

From a macro view, how China’s brutal Xi Jinping[6] and Russia’s equally brutal dictator-for-life Vladimir Putin[7] must be salivating.  Having unleashed the Coronavirus as a bioweapon or inadvertently[8], Xi is moving against Hong Kong now; and Taiwan and other parts of Asia may be next.  Yet, in all likelihood, the American thugs know nothing about these issues, or their global effects and impact on millions of lives, nor is it likely they would care one iota if they knew.  Their rioting must be stopped, period.[9]

The determination of death will be a central issue in the arresting officer’s trial for murder; and any variances from the initial official report may be subject to scrutiny by the officer’s legal team, and rightly so.  Indeed, there are reasons to believe that the official conclusions were “softened” for political reasons.  If so, it is a travesty.

Later, it was the Rodney King Riots, where the mistreatment of one man was a spark that ignited a fire that went nationwide, much as is true of the riots now.  Yet, ongoing black-on-black crimes are ignored, which in many cases involve young thugs who target elderly blacks, and especially elderly black women who are terrified.

China Is America’s Enemy, And The Enemy Of Free People Everywhere

13 08 2019

 By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Almost nine years ago, I wrote an article entitled “China Is America’s Enemy: Make No Mistake About That,” which was published here.[2]  The year before that, I had written another article entitled “The Silent Voices Of Stalin’s Soviet Holocaust And Mao’s Chinese Holocaust,” which addressed the killing by China’s Mao Tse-tung of an estimated 30-40 million between 1958 and 1960, as a result of what Mao’s regime hailed as the “Great Leap Forward.”[3]  Today, China is killing its babies, yet the world is turning a blind eye again.[4]

Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—has written a thoughtful and sobering article entitled “China, Not Russia, the Greater Threat,” which is worth reading and reflecting on:

Ten weeks of protests, some huge, a few violent, culminated Monday with a shutdown of the Hong Kong airport.

Ominously, Beijing described the violent weekend demonstrations as “deranged” acts that are “the first signs of terrorism,” and vowed a merciless crackdown on the perpetrators.

China is being pushed toward a decision it does not want to make: to use military force, as in Tiananmen Square 30 years ago, to crush the uprising. For that would reveal the character of President Xi Jinping’s Communist dictatorship, as well as Beijing’s long-term plans for this semi-autonomous city of almost 7.5 million.

Yet this is not the only internal or border concern of Xi’s regime.

Millions of Muslim Uighurs in China’s west are in concentration camps undergoing “re-education” to change their way of thinking on loyalty, secession and the creation of a new East Turkestan.

In June, a Chinese vessel rammed and sank a Philippine fishing boat, leaving its 22 crewmen to drown. The fishermen were rescued by a Vietnamese boat.

President Rodrigo Duterte’s reluctance to resist China’s fortification in the South China Sea of the rocks and reefs Manila claims are within its own territorial waters has turned Philippine nationalism anti-China.

China’s claim to Taiwan is being defied by Taipei, which just bought $2.2 billion in U.S. military equipment including Abrams tanks and Stinger missiles.

Any Taiwanese declaration of independence, China has warned, means war.

While Taiwan’s request to buy U.S. F-16s has not yet been approved, in a rare visit, Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen stopped over in the U.S. recently, before traveling on to Caribbean countries that retain diplomatic relations with Taipei. Beijing has expressed its outrage at the U.S. arms sales and Tsai’s unofficial visit.

The vaunted Chinese economy is growing, at best, at half the double-digit rate of a decade ago, not enough to create the jobs needed for hundreds of millions in the countryside seeking work.

And talks have been suspended in the U.S.-China trade dispute, at the heart of which, says White House aide Peter Navarro, are Beijing’s “seven deadly sins” in dealing with the United States:

China steals our intellectual property via cybertheft, forces U.S. companies in China to transfer technology, hacks our computers, dumps into our markets to put U.S. companies out of business, subsidizes state-owned enterprises to compete with U.S. firms, manipulates its currency, and, despite our protests, ships to the USA the fentanyl drug that has become a major killer of Americans.

Such practices have enabled China to run up annual trade surpluses of $300 billion to $400 billion at our expense, and, says Navarro, have caused the loss of 70,000 factories and 5 million manufacturing jobs in the U.S.

Moreover, China has used the accumulated wealth of its huge trade surpluses to finance its drive for hegemony in Asia and beyond.

With President Donald Trump threatening 10% tariffs on $300 billion more in Chinese exports to the U.S., Xi must decide if he is willing to end his trade-war tactics against the U.S., which have gone on during the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations. If he refuses, will he accept the de-coupling of our two economies?

Only Trump has taken on the Middle Kingdom.

If the American people and Congress are willing to play hardball and accept sacrifices, we can win this face-off. The U.S. buys five times as much from China as we sell to China. The big loser in this confrontation, if we stay the course, will not be the USA.

For three years, the U.S. establishment has not ceased to howl about Russia’s theft of emails of the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

Yet the greatest cybercrime of the century was Beijing’s theft in 2014 of the personnel files of 22 million applicants and employees of the U.S. government, many of them holding top-secret clearances.

Compromised by this theft, said then FBI Director James Comey, was a “treasure trove of information about everybody who has worked for, tried to work for, or works for the United States government.”

“A very big deal from a national security … and counterintelligence perspective,” said Comey. And Xi’s China, not Putin’s Russia, committed the crime. Yet America’s elites appear to have forgotten this far graver act of cyberaggresion.

Undeniably, Russia is a rival. But Putin’s economy is the size of Italy’s while China’s economy challenges our own. And China’s population is 10 times that of Russia, and four times that of the USA.

Manifestly, China is the greater menace.

Are Americans willing to make the necessary sacrifices to force China to abide by the rules of reciprocal trade?

Or will Trump be forced by political realities to accept the long-term and ruinous relationship we have followed since granting China permanent MFN status in 2001?

This issue is likely to decide the destiny of our relations and the future of Asia, if not the world.[5]

As I have written many times, Russia is a pygmy state economically—and “Putinism” dies with the demise of Russia’s brutal dictator-for-life Vladimir Putin.[6]  While China’s economy is not in good shape, it is wielding power in Hong Kong and elsewhere around the globe, which might be ominous.[7]  Protestors in Hong Kong have waved the American flag, and sung our national anthem.[8]  The thirst for freedom is everywhere; and China’s thirst for totalitarian global domination must end, or be ended.[9]
