Texas Congressman Fights to Prevent Chinese Takeover in America

Back in 2013, Shuanghui Group, the largest pork producer in the world and the largest meat producer in China, dominated headlines when it purchased U.S. pork producer Smithfield Foods Inc. for almost $4.7 billion.

At the time, Chinese companies owned about $1.3 billion worth of American farmlands. In 2022, China now controls over $2 billion in farms and ranches.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has vowed to crack down on “undue influence from rogue states” like China in response to Chinese businesses reportedly buying up large tracts of farmland.

DeSantis said he will sign legislation to limit the extent to which Chinese firms can invest in Florida pension funds.

“We don’t necessarily have a lot of it, but we want to make sure that we’re cutting ties so that we’re not funding our number-one adversary,” the Republican governor said.

This month, senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kevin Kramer (R-ND) wrote a letter to the Biden administration demanding that officials review a Chinese company’s purchase of North Dakota farmland just several miles from a sensitive military base.

Fufeng Group, a Shandong, China-based company that specializes in flavor enhancers and sugar substitutes, recently purchased 300 acres of farmland near Grand Forks, North Dakota, a rural area that lies about a 90-minute drive from the Canadian border.

The location of the farmland, which is just down the road from a US Air Force base that houses sensitive drone technology, has lawmakers on Capitol Hill worried about potential espionage by Beijing.

Three North Dakotans sold the land to Fufeng Group for $2.6 million, according to CNBC.

TEXAN CHIP ROY

In a letter to his constituents on Monday, Congressman Chip Roy of the 21st District of Texas proclaimed, “Communist China shouldn’t have a foothold in our nation.”

“Did you know that OVER 35 MILLION ACRES of US farmland — a plot roughly the size of Iowa — are now controlled by foreign investors, including some affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party?”

“It gets worse: right now China is apparently exploiting sister city partnerships in the United States to spy on over 150 American communities and spread Maoist propaganda.”

“Last week, I offered two critical amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act to counter Communist China’s influence, but Democrats refused to even bring them up for a vote.”

“The CCP is scheming to gain power in America while undermining our national security, and Democrats REFUSE to even look at how much damage China has inflicted. That’s unacceptable.”

“We need to get serious about our national security and stop playing around as China drives full steam ahead to overtake us and undermine our way of life. That starts with countering the CCP’s infiltration here on our own soil.”

Should Congress investigate the CCP’s purchase of American land?

“I am leading the fight against the CCP in Congress. Last year, I introduced the Securing America’s Land from Foreign Interference Act (H.R. 3847) to ban CCP members from buying up land in the United States.”

“I have also introduced the Sister City Transparency Act (H.R. 1852) with colleagues in the Senate to investigate whether these partnerships leave America vulnerable to Communist espionage and influence.”

“Bottom line: Communist China shouldn’t have ANY foothold on our farmland, in our cities, or in the hearts and minds of our citizens. Full stop.”

Six Things to Know About Amazon Expanding Into the Healthcare Business

Amazon plans to buy One Medical for $3.9 billion to expand their growing healthcare empire. One Medical’s parent company, 1Life Healthcare, Inc., closed Thursday at $17.25, just below Amazon’s offered price of $18.

The massive retailer first entered into healthcare in 2019.

Here are six things to know about the deal and Amazon’s previous endeavors to invade the healthcare industry:

🔹One Medical is an app and website members use to book appointments, track health records and renew prescriptions.

🔹One Medical has yet to turn a profit since going public in 2020. In the first three months of 2022, losses reached $90 million.

🔹The acquisition of One Medical will pit Amazon against other companies such as UnitedHealth Group’s Optum, CVS Health and hospital systems that increasingly employ physicians.

🔹Amazon’s previous forays into healthcare include a $1 billion deal for a business to ship prescriptions nationwide and a venture to remake healthcare that companies offer to U.S. workers. They haven’t met with much success so far.

🔹In 2019, Amazon launched Amazon Care, a telehealth service it first offered to its employees. Last year, they indicated this would expand in offerings to other companies.

🔹Amazon also launched its own pharmacy business after buying online pharmacy PillPack two years ago, but the service has failed to gain meaningful traction so far, critics and rivals say.

Neil Lindsay, Senior Vice President of Amazon Health Services, said: “We think health care is high on the list of experiences that need reinvention. Booking an appointment, waiting weeks or even months to be seen, taking time off work, driving to a clinic, finding a parking spot, waiting in the waiting room then the exam room for what is too often a rushed few minutes with a doctor, then making another trip to a pharmacy – we see lots of opportunity to both improve the quality of the experience and give people back valuable time in their days.”

“We love inventing to make what should be easy easier and we want to be one of the companies that helps dramatically improve the healthcare experience over the next several years,” he continued. “Together with One Medical’s human-centered and technology-powered approach to health care, we believe we can and will help more people get better care, when and how they need it. We look forward to delivering on that long-term mission.”

Something ‘Green’ Could be Rotten in Georgia and it’s Not Peaches

Families of electrical power plant facilities in Georgia are concerned for job security due to the Biden Democrats’ Build Back Better Green Initiatives.

Another concerning factor is, out of the 2,500 companies in the U.S. with Chinese firms having controlling interests, many are energy businesses. These include Cirrus Wind Energy, First International Oil, EIG Global Energy Partners, Chesapeake Energy Corp, Boston Power, Global Solar Energy, TransPacific Energy and others.

Last week, Georgia regulators approved the retirement and decertification of all Georgia Power-controlled coal units by 2028, with one exception: the 3,300 MW Plant Bowen.

“One of my sons works at Plant Bowen which is a Georgia Power plant,” said one mother who asked not to be identified due to the corrupt politics of Gov. Brian Kemp and the state in general. “When he began working there six years ago, the coal heap was a half a mile long and 100 feet high rising like a mountain in the landscape.”

“There was enough coal to provide power to all of the southeast for 4 to 5 years,” she continued. “Today, they have enough for one month. The coal cars used to run through twice a day. Now, my son reports getting maybe one train a week.”

“The plant is currently running only one unit at half capacity, because they simply don’t have the coal to fire up the other units,” she noted.


“Now here’s something that you may not know,” the mother revealed. “The ash that is produced from the burning of coal is used in many everyday products. Things like concrete, fertilizer, asphalt, Portland cement, bricks, gypsum panel products (dry wall), and on and on.”

Current U.S. Energy Plants

.

“The fly ash is collected and sold to manufacturers who produce the building products mentioned above. So, you see, when there’s no coal to burn, there’s no ash. And when there’s no ash, there will be shortages (and higher prices) for items that are vital to our economy,” she wrote.

“Look at that list again and ponder this: U.S. coal shipments to China saw a 30-fold increase in the second quarter of 2021 placing it just behind India as the largest importer of American coal.”


“Something unusual is going on. My son has worked at the power plant long enough to understand that things.”

Regulators are expected to reevaluate Bowen Plant as part of the utility’s next regularly scheduled integrated resource plan (IRP) in 2025. The last minute deal to keep Plant Bowen open was initiated by Commissioner Fitz Johnson.

In December, the commission is scheduled to vote on Georgia Power’s rate plan. If approved, a residential customer who uses 1,000 kWh of electricity each month would see their bill increase from $128 now to $144.29 at the end of three years.

Regulators also tentatively approved what is expected to be another “Green Initiative,” Georgia Power’s largest single battery energy storage system project, the McGrau Ford Battery facility. As proposed, the resource would include a 265 MW lithium-ion facility interconnected at the McGrau Ford substation. Regulators also approved an additional 500 MW of battery storage.  

Georgia Power’s coal assets include Plant Bowen, Plant Scherer, and Plant Wansley. Plant Bowen began commercial operation in 1975 in Bartow County, Georgia. The four coal-fired units are capable of producing 3,376 MW of electricity.

How Trump Plans to Drain the Swamp of Obama’s Secret Deep State Army

Six months after Donald J. Trump declared his candidacy for presidency, the powers behind the Obama White House realized the threat to their agenda. They began moving into action and on December 15, 2015, Barack Obama signed an executive order virtually no one talked about, or God forbid, report on.

The executive order was purposefully secretive. Why? It is likely treasonous.

It was the beginning of a secret government force, that in retrospect we now know was intended as coup d’etat of a duly elected president and the ongoing “complete transformation of America.”

Obama’s executive order put into action a complicated and destructive plan to change the political structure of America.

The Deep State Purge

Immediately, an accelerated removal of thousands of American patriots from virtually every government agency began.

The purge was massive and was particularly harmful to our intelligence services and military.

Those expelled were replaced with only the deep party loyalists.  Political operatives were specifically placed in key posts to circumvent the Constitution and change our government towards New World Order globalists and their progressive-socialist agendas.

Trump called them “The Swamp.”

🔹Although Trump began draining these operatives during his presidency, it was discovered Obama had actually begun his own purging since the beginning of his first term.

🔹Obama’s executive order hastened it when they realized Trump could be a threat to their takeover and his rising potential of defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016.

🔹If Clinton were to be defeated, these actions would ensure a massive army of operatives waiting for Donald Trump.

Two Missions

Obama’s army of political operatives had two missions:

🔹The complete political, cultural and economic transformation of America.

🔹The overthrow of a Donald J. Trump.

The Deep State army would be the “Senior Executive Service,” the SES. Have you ever heard of them? If not, it’s by design. Below is their official flag and emblem.

SES was created on September 19, 1979 during the Carter administration for the purpose of professionalizing career civil service. It would “improve and modernize the management of the federal bureaucracy.”

From the government website:

“Members of the SES serve in the key positions just below the top Presidential appointees. SES members are the major link between these appointees and the rest of the Federal workforce. They operate and oversee nearly every government activity in approximately 75 Federal agencies.”

Today, a position within the SES is considered the equivalent to general officer or the flag officer ranks in the U.S. Armed Forces. By the time Obama’s order began the purging, these operatives were being referred to as “civilian generals.”

Known in Washington as “Obama’s Army,” these operatives were given the best jobs in the federal government that require no experience, no skills, and yet get the highest pay of anyone. If you’re the boss of your department, it’s hard to fire yourself.

The civilian general pay scale starts above the top level of civil service (GS-15), with base salaries ranging from a minimum of $127,914 to a maximum of $192,300 (2019 figures).

Many of these Deep State loyalists are the progressive grandpaparents of young children we hear about being indoctrinated in nearby schools on Critical Race Theory, Transsexual Grooming and a reimagined history.

On the day Obama signed the executive order these civilian officers jobs changed from implementing policing to massively changing it.

Although Trump quickly began a purge of his own, especially with the FBI and DOJ, his administration was faced with enormous obstructions–partly because of the massive changes by Deep State operatives but primarily due to the difficulties of firing SES civilian generals.

“To say Obama’s transformation of the SES into an army of political operatives was effective would be a gross understatement,” stated one observer.

Although Trump was able to eventually rid many of these operatives out of their positions, the task was massive. Democrats had to steal the 2020 election to prevent the “Obama Army” from failing the American takeover.

The Imbedded Operatives Are Deep State

Today there are more than 2 million federal government employees. Most of the leaders of these employees are about 8,000 SES managers. Obama replaced over 6,000 of those managers with these Deep State operatives during his eight years in the Oval Office. This continues under Joe Biden.

It’s important to note if you are doing your own verification research that “officially” they are not in the FBI, DOJ, and State Department. (Researching The “Plum Book” can get you started).

There are “look-alike” senior management systems inside some federal agencies that fill the exact same purposes and those systems are directly connected to SES. Even the Department of Defense has these Deep State appointees, though they officially claim they do not. 

You cannot find their names on official lists. Remember they are imbedded in the DEEP state. SES is a system of controlling power through secrecy, and acting with complete impunity.

On the day Trump began his first day as President, 821 operatives were in place at the Department of Justice.

It wasn’t just the DOJ. Obama placed 639 operative managers at Homeland Security.

When former Texas Governor Rick Perry took over as Trump’s Energy Secretary, he faced 490 new operatives.

Here’s a list of other Departments:

🔹Department of Education – 86

🔹Department of Housing & Urban Development – 115

🔹Department of the Air Force – 182

🔹Department of Labor – 200

🔹Department of State – 204

🔹Department of Transportation – 231

🔹Department of Interior – 258

🔹Department of the Army – 261

🔹Department of the Navy – 326

🔹Department of Veterans Affairs – 357

🔹Department of Agriculture – 361

🔹Department of Commerce – 425

🔹Department of the Treasury – 458

🔹Department of Health & Human Services – 468

🔹All Other Agencies (all non-Cabinet level agencies) – 1,796

President Trump knew all of this. His administration continued to deal with the anarchy imbedded in the SES. The best headway, at least as far as my sources know, were made in the Veterans Administration.

Some members of the Congressional House of Veterans Affairs Committee were especially helpful moving this along.

“It was the Trump White House’s initial experience dealing with getting these operatives out,” a source commented before the 2020 election. “Let’s hope they honed their skills for many more.”

Compared to Obama’s first year in office in 2009, the number of SES members showed the exit door under President Trump in 2017 was 26 percent more.

If Trump gains another term as president, there is good promise on making more headway. Today there are news reports and talk that a team are working the strategic plan to oust up to 50,000 Deep State minions.

This year, 2022, 65 percent of the top SES leaders are eligible to retire.

The Patriotic American Lesson of a True Insurrection

The Battle of Athens, Tennessee

The Battle of Athens, Tennessee

Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, their families and cohorts  remind many patriotic citizens today of Paul Cantrell and his political machine.

In Athens, Tennessee, the seat of McMinn County, was once upon a time, the headquarters of Sheriff Cantrell, the unscrupulous boss of a corrupt Democratic machine which stretched from Tennessee to Washington, DC.

When so many of the husbands, fathers, uncles, sons and cousins left for duty during the Second World War, Cantrell kicked his corruption into high gear.

🔹On the books, Cantrell drew salaries of nearly sixty thousand dollars per year over his first six years that were worth over $715,000 in today’s dollars.

🔹He was also appointed superintendent of the county workhouse (which didn’t even exist) for an additional two thousand dollars annually. a time when the median Tennessee home was worth less than two thousand dollars and the starting salary for enlisted men was fifty dollars per month.

🔹Despite the strict rationing for millions of patriotic citizens, Cantrell’s “lieutenants” and “enforcers” had plenty of cars, tires, and fuel.

🔹Reminiscent of Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein, or Joe Biden and Judge Emmett Sullivan, Cantrell and company had their own whorehouses, not to mention illegal casinos, and speakeasies, to play in and take in thousands of dollars per month in protection money.

🔹Like Congress and the Senate today protecting their beloved kickback schemes from Ukraine, by 1946, Cantrell had dozens of county employees on the payrolls to provide cover for their vast money laundering operations.

🔹By August 1, 1946, citizens had enough. The boys who went to fight in World War II returned home as men, brave veterans.

.

🔹While the “roosters” were gone saving the world from tyranny, the “fox” made certain the elections were rigged, much like 2020.

🔹McMinn County ballot boxes remained in Democratic offices. Cantrell’s deputies were the “election officers,” some of whom went down in history as “brutal killers with the blood of innocent civilians on their hands. Other local thugs and felons were on hand to further inculcate the climate of fear, including a man who murdered his own father and, five months after the election, murdered his sister-in-law, an expectant mother, and an infant child.”

🔹Like the patriots of January 6, 2021, some of McMinn County voters were imprisoned to prevent them from voting.

🔹Similar to the fake news of Big Media today, the message went out to older voters that their pensions would be held up unless they voted “the right way.”

🔹When a Republican election judge, a disabled veteran of World War I, tried to view the ballot count, he was dragged into the corridor and beaten, leaving him paralyzed.

🔹Another man who attempted to observe the ballot count was pistol-whipped, and one gunman fired at a poll worker who tried to leave the courthouse.

🔹Citizens petitioned the Department of Justice for relief, knowing that local and State officials would not take any action against the machine.

🔹Like the DOJ of 2022, the 1946 Department of Justice took no to little action and downplayed any evidence.

🔹Judges then, as now, dismissed evidence and lawsuits that did make it into courts. Of course, judges, DAs, senators and congressmen were associated with the machine. In one case, the judge not only dismissed most of the charges but fined the men one penny for the charges that stuck.

🔹The machine awarded Cantrell by having him “elected” to the Tennessee Senate. Pat Mansfield replaced him as Sheriff.

🔹Stories started to spread that widows and daughters of some deceased military heroes were forced into prostitutuon.

🔹Surviving veterans returned home to a community of horror.

🔹Near the end of September, 1944, Earl Ford, a returned Navy Seabee, was shot and killed by one of Mansfeld’s thugs, George Spurling.

🔹Not long after Ford was killed, Bill White returned from his tour of duty. Bill’s father, Edd, a veteran of the First World War, told his son a story:

He walked five miles a day to work at the power station on Railroad Avenue. He carried his lunch in a brown paper bag and a pint of milk from Mayfield’s Dairy. While walking past the jail on his way home he saw four deputies stare at him, get in a car, and start the engine. As he walked past the courthouse, the car was in the middle of the street, following him. He lowered his head and kept walking. He walked past the bus station and they were right alongside him. Edd picked up the pace. They accelerated. He didn’t know what they wanted with him or why. But he knew it wasn’t good. He panicked and started running to his house. The car pulled in front of him and slammed on its brakes. Four deputies jumped out with clubs in their hands. He was arrested and taken to jail. Now it was time to figure out a reason. The deputies took his milk bottle out of the bag and passed it around, taking a sniff. “Smells funny,” they agreed. The deputies who protected the roadhouses and honky-tonks and lined their pockets with kickbacks from bootleggers and pimps decided the remnant of Edd White’s milk was alcohol. He was fined $16.05, several days’ pay.

“It was a big surprise,” Bill described about returning home from the war, and “everything, everything, everything you’ve been told you’re supposed to be fighting for wasn’t there.” There were “liquor houses, whorehouses, gambling joints all over the county,” protected by “a bunch of thugs wearing guns and badges.”

Sounding very familiar to Americans today, Cantrell back then decided he was returning to Athens to “run” for Sheriff, Mansfield would be his handpicked successor to “run” for the State Senate seat.

🔹The veterans could stand no more. It was time to take action. They were told to keep away from the polls and to not even think about running for office, the veterans began organizing anyway.

🔹They prepared in secrecy to put a ticket together. They called it the “Ex-Serviceman’s Cleanup Ticket for McMinn County.”

🔹The local Republican Party endorsed them. One party official summed it up:

“We are involved in a conflict with desperate enemies who have sought to subject us to tyranny and oppression…We feel a deep sense of obligation and now seek in measure to repay…Young men who have fought against oppression abroad will continue that fight for honesty and decency at home.”

🔹Bill White finally told the group they were being naïve, arguing that they had to organize a fighting bunch:

“Listen. Do you think they’re going to let you win this election? Those people been taking these elections for years with a bunch of armed thugs. If you never got the guts enough to stand up and fight fire with fire, you ain’t gonna win.”

An Athens minister preached to his congregation:

“If you do not vote as your conscience dictates, then you have sold your citizenship and do not deserve to be citizens. It is the responsibility of each and every person to preserve our most cherished possession, liberty, or forever lose it.”

ELECTION DAY

🔹Armed deputies “guarded” each polling place, and reports of election fraud poured in to GI headquarters almost immediately.

🔹One veteran reported, “They already started knocking our boys in the head and putting them in jail. They’re taking this thing…This thing’ lost.”

Athens Jail, 1946

🔹A deputy beat and shot a sixty-year-old who insisted he was going to vote as he tried to enter a polling place.

🔹Another deputy brutally beat an election judge, a veteran who protested the shameful voter fraud he witnessed.

🔹One writer indicated “there were twelve ballot boxes: one in the jail, another inside a heavily defended courthouse, a third barricaded in the Dixie Café, a fourth in the vault in the Cantrell Bank Building, and poll watchers had been ejected at two other locations.”

🔹Inside the courthouse, deputies held a handful of GI poll watchers hostage, two of them wounded.

🔹Bill White and some of the team of GI veterans took these courthouse “deputies” for a drive out in the country were they marched them into the woods, made them take off their clothes, and tied them to trees. Some were whipped with a hickory stick.

Some of the veterans who took their city back

.

🔹Leaving the naked and whipped deputies tied to the trees, White and team returned to town. White told his fellow patriots:

Well! Here you are! After three or four years of fighting for your country. You survived it all. You came back. And what did you come back to? A free country? You came back to Athens, Tennessee, in McMin!n County, that’s run by a bunch of outlaws. They’ve got hired gunmen all over this county right now at this minute. What for? One purpose. To scare you so bad you won’t dare stand up for the rights you’ve been bleeding and dying for. Some of your mothers and some of your sisters are afraid to walk down the streets to the polling places. Lots of men, too! Because they know what happens. A car drives by in the night and shoots out your windows. If that doesn’t scare you enough, they’ll set fire to your house or your barn. They’ll beat up members of your family and put them in jail. For no reason! Is that the kind of freedom you were supposed to be fighting for? Do you know what your rights are supposed to be? How many rights have you got left? None! Not even the right to vote in a free election. When you lose that, you’ve lost everything. And you are damned well going to lose it unless you fight and fight the only way they understand. Fire with fire! We’ve got to make this an honest election because we promised the people that if they voted it would be an honest election. And it’s going to be. But only if we see that it is. We are going to have to run these organized criminals out of town, and we can do it if we stick together. Are you afraid of them? Why, I could take a banana stalk and run every one of these potbellied draft dodgers across Depot Hill. Get the hell out of here and get something to shoot with. And come back as fast as you can.

Bill White, 1946

🔹The veterans returned with an arsenal of pistols, rifles, shotguns, squirrel guns, and European souvenirs like a German Mauser. It wasn’t enough.

🔹A group of them raided the nearby National Guard armory, where they found revolvers, a Thompson submachine gun, an array of .30-caliber M1917 rifles, and plenty of ammunition.

🔹Sheriff deputies gathered at the jail, where the ballot boxes had been taken.

Local hero patriots pose in jail after they took it over.

🔹 White remembered how they had sworn to defend America against all of her enemies. Later, he explained that “if it was worth going over there and risking your life, laying it down, it was worth it here, too. So, we decided to fight.”

🔹The veterans formed a line on a hillside across from the jail and demanded that the machine men bring out the ballot boxes. From the jail, someone yelled, “You’re going to have to come get them.”

🔹A gun battle commenced and the vets climbed to rooftops, strategically surrounding the jail.

🔹 Other veterans fired from behind walls and parked cars. They shot out the transformer that supplied the jail. The deputies could even see their ammo which had mostly been used up.

🔹More deputies from both Monroe and Polk Counties arrived with a plan to kill Knox Henry, the veteran candidate for Sheriff.

🔹After receiving news that the National Guard had been mobilized, the veterans asked White what they should do. He replied immediately, vowing, “We’re not going to do anything about it. We’re going to keep shooting here until we get those ballot boxes and get those people out of there.”

🔹Some of the veterans went and returned with an enormous stockpile of dynamite in the old county barn that the county used to clear roads and blast stumps and stones.

🔹They began tossing dynamite in increasing amounts at the jail, aiming closer and closer with each throw, finally promising that the next would be through the window.

🔹The deputized political machine men, outgunned and out of ammunition, surrendered with their hands held straight up as they walked out.

🔹The patriots searched the deputies for weapons and marched them from the jail to the courthouse in a column led by Bill White.

🔹White’s men gathered all deputies fancy late model cars so citizens could see them turn them over, douse them with gasoline, and set aflame.

🔹The veterans delivered a statement to a local radio station:

“The GI election officials went to the polls unarmed to have a fair election, as Pat Mansfield promised. They were met with blackjacks and pistols. Several GI officials were beaten and the ballot boxes were moved to the jail. The GI supporters went to the jail to get these ballot boxes and were met by gunfire. The GI candidates had promised that the votes would be counted as cast. They had no choice but to meet fire with fire. In the precincts where the GI candidates were allowed watchers, they led by three-to-one majorities. The GIs are elected and will serve as your county officials beginning September 1, 1946.”

The GIs continued by:

🔹Halting their planned aerial attack at a nearby airstrip in which they had planned to drop bombs over the jail.

🔹Raided all of the gambling dens, seized the slot machines and destroyed the equipment.

🔹Knox Henry was sworn in as Sheriff and declared:

“We have accomplished what we started out to do. We’ve broken the grip of the political machine that has ruled McMinn County for ten years without regard as to the wishes of the people in how their government was to be run. When I say we, I mean the other GIs on the nonpartisan cleanup ticket and the citizens of McMinn County who helped us win the battle.”

“We regret that the gunfight at the jail had to happen…Our only alternative was to use force…there will be no trouble of this kind at the next election. Any person who can qualify for an office may run with the full assurance of an honest election and the people will have nothing to fear when they go to the polls on Election Day.”

🔹Knox needed a whole new team of deputies, and pinned a star on Bill White. Almost immediately, they carried out raids on the moonshiners and bootleggers who had enjoyed the protection of the eliminated machine.

Soon, a Commonwealth editorial read:

“Since, after all, our American nation was founded by virtue of revolution, and since such revered figures as Jefferson evidently thought that revolution had valuable tonic effects on the body politic, it would be a trifle hypocritical for Americans to raise their hands in horror at these goings-on in the shadow of the Great Smokies.”

These brave patriots of Athens, Tennessee, fought and won the only successful armed insurrection in the United States since the War of Independence….so far.

Virginia Citizens Attempt Recall of Soros-Funded Commonwealth Attorney

When the Democrat majority of citizens, some Deep State employees of federal government bureaucracy in Washington D.C., elected their Fairfax County Commonwealth Attorney Steve Descano, they didn’t realize how horrible he would be.

The first clue should have been the massive contributions to Descano’s campaign from a political action committee funded by progressive billionaire George Soros.

Soros pumped $2.1 million into the campaigns of four Virginia district attorney races that year including:

  • Loudoun Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj (The local school district made national news over their far left stance to include Critical Race Theory into their curriculum).
  • Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano
  • Albemarle County Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Hingeley
  • Arlington County Commonwealth’s Attorney Parisa Dehghani-Tafti
Soros Owned Virginia Attorneys

.

Descano, a Democrat, is a former federal prosecutor and Army helicopter pilot who defeated incumbent independent Jonathan Fahey in the November 2019 election.

Recently, after organizer Brenda Tillett and supporters with Stand Up Virginia saw a “complete disregard for victims and families,” the group examined Descano’s record closer. He is a first term prosecutor elected on a platform of eliminating the death penalty, ending cash bail and stopping the prosecutor’s office from cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Stand Up Virginia’s announced an aggressive recall effort last week, with a planned rally set for 5 p.m. Tuesday outside the Fairfax County Government Center.

Tillett and others plan to call out Descano for his failures to prosecute violent crimes, as well as his record of dismissing charges and reaching “inequitable” plea deals in cases involving child pornography, incestuous sexual assault of a minor, domestic violense, elder abuse and animal abuse.

“After failed attempts for almost a year imploring our local legislators to rein in his power through budget reductions, we now know that victims and their parents are being dismissed, silenced and denigrated by Mr. Descano,” Tillett said. “We are placing his removal in the hands of our citizens by launching a recall petition to ensure everyone is aware of the egregious nature of his actions.”

Tillett said the recall effort involves securing approximately 30,000 signature petitions, or 10 percent of voters who cast ballots in the last election. She will also make her case before the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday night.

Descano responded with a statement calling the criticism of his office “fringe backlash.”

“When I took office I promised our community I would hold police accountable and reform our criminal justice system,” Descano stated. “While this work is far from done, we have made considerable progress – and transformative change often elicits fringe backlash. This effort is nothing more than a far-right, partisan effort to stand in the way of the criminal justice reforms that the vast majority of our community supports.”

Why Have You Heard of Antifa and BLM, but Not Sunrise Movement?

.

FIGHT THEIR FIRE WITH FREEDOM to save America

Why have you not heard of the Sunrise Movement? Perhaps, by design, it is barely mentioned in mainstream media.

While most Americans may not know about this extremely coordinated network of liberal activists, many university students are well aware that this organization has been mobilizing around the country with coordinated efforts to ferment chaos in the United States.

Just before the stolen 2020 Presidential Election, Sunrise were releasing videos and documents discussing their well-coordinated plan to shut down federal buildings (including the White House), public transportation portals, and disrupt Congress when it returned post-election.  

Note that their plans sound eerily similar to what Nancy Pelosi’s and her operatives’ January 6, 2021 “insurrection” narrative is with her hand picked witchhunt committee of the summer of 2022.

Sunrise is an umbrella movement comprised of 400 “hubs” and hundreds of affinity groups including 350.0rg and Extinction Rebellion.

In one of their Zoom calls, preparing for their own insurrection for Election Day, 2020, a spokesperson, highlighting the role of the militant group Shut Down DC, stated:


“We have been in discussion for a couple of months about how to respond to different contested election scenarios.  The first step is we think we need to start the post-election phase in the streets, so we invite everyone to come to BLM (Black Lives Matter) Plaza any time after 4:00 on election night.  On the 5th, we’re going to shut down the White House.  On the 6th, we’re going to shut down larger parts of DC and then the following week, all the mainstream groups are going to come to DC and try to have a march on the 7th.”

Lisa Fithian, a long-time organizer and trainer including stints with Occupy Wall Street and various unions, also was recorded on the Zoom describing tools and tactics to shut down DC:

“Whoever’s got the guns can win – let’s take over the buildings!  We are going to be in a crisis but we want it to be one that we are creating.  We want to make sure that we are on the offense and not the defense.  We want them to be responding to us and not us responding to them.”

“Change at the incremental levels we’ve seen in the past won’t be enough to prevent the worst of the climate crisis,” the New World Order puppet, Sunrise Movement, states in their propaganda to America’s youth.

“The latest report from the United Nations gives us less than 12 years to avoid the most catastrophic impacts of climate change,” they continue, attempting to recruit in a new generation of socialists into their hubs. “To do so, we must transform every sector of our society and economy at an ‘unprecedented scale and speed.’”

“Our leaders have known about climate change since the 1980’s — longer than most young people have been alive — yet they have met the crisis with measures that are wholly insufficient or actively harmful,” their mantra is repeated.

“In order to transition the nation off fossil fuels within the time frame that science dictates — while centering justice and equity for the workers affected and the communities hit hardest by environmental disasters — we need to build the public’s support for a massive, society-wide, government-led intervention of the economy.”

Supreme Court Gives Texas Another Win Against Biden’s Lack of Border Security

On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court handed Texas another victory in denying the Biden Administration’s request to stay a lower court’s vacatur of an unlawful Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo.

🔹As a result, the Administration must continue to follow the law while it awaits further legal proceedings. 

🔹This case arises out of a federal district court’s vacatur of a DHS immigration enforcement priorities memo.

🔹The judge concluded that memo is contrary to law, arbitrary and capricious, and procedurally unlawful for failing to go through notice-and-comment procedures.

🔹The core of the case is about certain immigration statutes, which say that DHS “shall” detain aliens with certain criminal convictions and those with final orders of removal. 

🔹Rather than abide by these statutes, DHS chose to follow their own contrary directives, which don’t require detention of those aliens. 

🔹After Texas won in federal district court, the Biden Administration sought a stay in the Court of Appeals, which was denied.

🔹The Administration then went to the Supreme Court, which denied their request and set oral argument on the merits for December 2022. 

“The Biden Administration just can’t help itself from breaking the law—especially immigration law,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. “They have begged every court up to the Supreme Court to let them off the hook, and every time the court says ‘no.’ Today the Supreme Court made clear that, while we prepare for oral argument this winter, the Biden Administration must detain illegal aliens with criminal convictions. It’s the right legal decision, and it’s what’s best for Texas and our nation.”

Majority of Americans Say Our Military Should Focus on Protecting U.S.

If New World Order (NWO) and World Economic Forum (WEF) disciples George Soros, David Rubenstein, Barack Obama and Joe Biden even cared, they would be wise to note that:

🔹60 percent of American voters now favor a proposal for the U.S. military to focus exclusively on the mission of protecting the U.S.

🔹The majority of voters want the U.S. military to continue with leading global alliances, but should no longer be used for nation-building and other purposes.

🔹25% strongly favor the proposal.

The Scott Rasmussen national survey in July 2022 also revealed that only 7% significantly oppose the proposal, 22% marginally oppose, and 18% are not sure.

The survey also discovered that:

🔹41% of Americans believe it is possible to slow the growth of military spending without putting national security at risk.

🔹Only 33% believe it is not possible, and 26% are not sure.

The survey of 1,200 registered voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on July 6-8, 2022. The margin of sampling error for the full sample was +/- 2.8 percentage points.

Most Americans now believe military should further enhance border security and protect citizens against the cartels, illegal aliens and foreign terrorists invading the U.S.

The survey did not ask about the CIA, DOD or other areas besides the “military” being involved.

There were no questions regarding U.S. involvement in other foreign elections.

Beware The Bottle on The Tire Car Thief Trick

Reliable law enforcement sources in San Antonio and Houston, Texas have informed CleverJourneys of an upsurge in “Bottle on the Tire” crimes.

Car jackers, robbers and kidnappers in many states use this method to target victims in parking lots, streets and parks.

🔹They place an empty plastic bottle between the tire and body on the right side of the car.

🔹They wait until the intended victim begins backing up or moving forward in their car.

🔹As the driver backs up or moves forward, he/she starts wheeling the car and hears a strange noise. It’s the bottle bursting/cracking sound. 

🔹The bottle is not in view since it is on the passenger side and can’t be seen from that angle.

🔹In bewilderment, the driver steps out of the car to inspect the problem and is immediately vulnerable.

🔹At this point, the entire car is unlocked, the driver door is wide open, engine is in running mode and the driver is out of the vehicle.

The criminal has multiple options:

🔹Steal valuables from the car,

🔹Drive away with the car.

🔹Hold you at gun point to rob, rape or shoot you.

Please share with others so that more people are aware of this dangerous trick. Even if one person is helped from not getting fooled or harmed, it’s worth it.

Consumer Alert: Do Not Ride—Recall Issued for Can-Am Ryker Motorcycles

Bombardier Recreational Products says handlebar stem bolts may break suddenly

Bombardier Recreational Products is warning owners of certain 2022 Can-Am Ryker motorcycles not to drive them. Bombardier is recalling more than 9,300 vehicles with a handlebar stem bolt that may break suddenly, which could lead to a loss of steering control and increase the risk of a crash. 

Bombardier indicated that it had two reports of stem bolts that broke while the cycles were being ridden. There was one injury, a sprained ankle. Another 56 bolts broke while dealers were preparing the motorcycles for delivery.

Bombardier Recreational Products highly recommends that owners stop riding their vehicle until the recall repair is performed.

Next Steps

  1. Owners are encouraged to immediately contact their authorized BRP Can-Am On-Road dealer to schedule an appointment to have the FREE safety recall performed on their vehicle.
  2. The dealer will clean the threads of the steering column and install the new handlebar stem bolt.
  3. The repair will take less than one hour to complete.

Vehicle owners can visit NHTSA.gov/recallsand enter their vehicle identification number to see if their vehicle is under recall. NHTSA encourages everyone to download its SaferCar app to stay informed about current recalls.
