Salena Zito contributor to American Greatness wrote: Americans need something to aspire to — a purpose or someone who will take us to a better place. If 2020 taught us anything, then it taught us that that journey upward will not come from a politician, nor will it come from the loudest voices, which means it will likely come from within us as a people. That might be the best news for 2021.


Dodge: China’s ‘unrestricted war’ on the United States
In 1999 Colonel Qiao Liang and Colonel Wang Xiangsui wrote a book called Unrestricted Warfare. In this book, these officers, who were both active-duty officers in the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) discussed the lessons learned from the Gulf War action in 1990. The book was published by the PLA Literature and Arts Publishing House in Beijing, which suggests official approval by the PLA Command. Liang and Xiangsui recall the CNN broadcast of the dead American soldier in Mogadishu and how that broadcast caused an American pullout of Somalia, changing the world’s strategic situation. This and other examples caused these officers to postulate another type of warfare they called unrestricted warfare, which crossed all of the spectrums of society and involved no rules. The authors listed 15 types of new warfare to be used in order to avoid the standard military conflict. One of these new types of warfare is called . . .

Akan: US Turns Tide on Huawei, Ending CCP’s 5G Master Plan
The effort, while not well-publicized, secured an array of commitments from governments to exclude untrusted vendors from their fifth-generation (5G) wireless networks. As of this month, more than 50 nations, representing over two-thirds of the world’s economy, and 180 telecom companies had joined the “Clean Network” initiative led by the U.S. government. The alliance includes 26 of the 27 EU member states, as well as technologically advanced countries such as Japan, Israel, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, Canada, New Zealand, and India. This triumph for the U.S. government seemed unthinkable at the beginning of this year, as the Chinese telecom giant, a dominant player in the global 5G market, seemed unbeatable. […] To turn the tide, the State Department in April launched a campaign requiring a “clean path” for all standalone 5G network traffic entering and exiting U.S. diplomatic facilities, as outlined in the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act. The Clean Path was the first of several Clean Network strategic moves that the administration rolled out to keep U.S. critical data and networks safe from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The following month, the Commerce Department . . .

Chang: China Using Covid to Overtake America’s Economy
The U.K.-based Centre for Economics and Business Research believes that, due to China’s superior response to COVID-19, the Chinese economy will become the world’s largest by 2028, five years earlier than previously forecast. “For some time, an overarching theme of global economics has been the economic and soft power struggle between the United States and China,” the Centre wrote in a December 26 report. “The COVID-19 pandemic and corresponding economic fallout have certainly tipped this rivalry in China’s favor.” No, it has not. In fact, the opposite looks to be true. The Centre’s prediction, which mimics one of Beijing’s narratives, is more than just premature. It is based on fundamentally wrong assumptions. China’s economy is worse than it appears, and its vaccines, needed for a full recovery, are still in development, far behind America’s. In the meantime, Beijing’s response to the coronavirus, which includes the smearing of America, is resulting in China losing friends worldwide.

Winters: REPORT: 368,000 ‘Fraudulent Votes’ Across Swing States
Lott, a noted crime and gun researcher, alleged the wide-scale vote fraud plagued the recent presidential election, potentially “account[ing] for Biden’s win in” states such as Georgia and Pennsylvania. “Increased fraud can take many forms: higher rates of filling out absentee ballots for people who hadn’t voted, dead people voting, ineligible people voting, or even payments to legally registered people for their votes. […] The estimates here indicate that there were 70,000 to 79,000 “excess” votes in Georgia and Pennsylvania. Adding Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin, the total increases to up to 289,000 excess votes,” the summary notes.

Hoft: WHAT A DISGRACE: Pence Disagreed with Louie Gohmert on Electoral College Vote Before Lawsuit
Before Vice President Mike Pence was sued by Representative Louie Gohmert their lawyers met and the two sides disagreed about how the Electoral College is formally accepted. After the meeting, Rep. Gohmert sued VP Pence and argued that Mike Pence should pick competing slates from the swing states Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigann, Wisconsin due to the mass amount of fraud in the 2020 stolen election. Evidently, Mike Pence is interested in getting out of politics. Trump voters WILL NEVER FORGET such a betrayal to this country and president.

Bialosky: Forget Voter Fraud – This is Bigger
President Trump Has spent a lot of time harping on voter fraud. He may be correct that there were inappropriate actions done by voters and election officials, but he and his team were unable to prove that to our courts to be able to overturn the election. Our election laws will be dealt with in a future column, but now we have to address an issue that impacts our elections in an even more meaningful way. That is how our national press discriminates regarding newsworthy stories that impacted the 2020 election and possibly beyond. In a prior column, I stated the fact that the Biden campaign skirted answering questions from the national press and they allowed Biden and his campaign to do such. It was obvious that Biden would continue in the same manner once he was president. At least in the transition he and his staff have continued in the same manner. His communications staff allows one opportunity a week for the press to answer questions and then handpicks friendly press to ask a meager five questions. Biden gave his first full interview to a late night TV host that at one time was funny. The peculiar aspect is they made such a big deal out of hiring a female only communications staff. It is quite apparent they will be muzzled for most of the time on the job.

Greenhorn: The Fifth Revolution of 2020
It is not hard to convince people we are living through a revolution. It is only hard to define how far and deep it goes. One difficulty is the fact that so many of the rights it has stripped us of are not acknowledged in the pantheon of written rights. We have lost the right to face-to-face confrontations, the right to walk the streets, the right to access public buildings. Before this year these rights were so etched into our lives that we could not see them as rights. They were not rights gained through bloodshed or battle, and they were too many to be codified. As Burke says, “If civil society be made for the advantage of man, all the advantages for which it is made become his right.” And man as a social animal has always found reason to find happiness in genuine public life. His rights arose merely from being natural. He didn’t even know he had the rights until they were gone. No, when I try to drive home the rights we have laid on the altar of Coronadoom, I bring up the right to jury trial. If your state is like mine, that right is now gone. For the second time this year the Chief Justice of our Supreme Court suspended them, supposedly until February first. The right still exists in a way that protects lawyers’ consciences, but paper rights mean nothing. The Founding Fathers would have found the abolition of the jury trial abhorrent. It is worth remembering that 18th Century men risked an agonizing death by tetanus every time they confronted a shard of old metal. But they never would have imagined ending the jury trial because of some rusty nails on the street. A host of rights have been immolated this past year. […] REVOLUTIONS never come out of the air. If only in retrospect, it is amazing how predictable they are. […] This all constitutes a huge political change. But the Fifth Revolution, like all revolutions, is most notably a denial of nature. The world is governed by ideas, but made rich by things. In a happy society, idea and thing support one another. All around us are outward shows of Christian life and Republican government. These shows are unsupported by……

Wright: A Call to Arms for All Patriots to Come to the Aid of Their Country
Patriots in the contested states should immediately deluge by phone, fax, and email their representative to demand the retraction of the electors pledged to Biden. Warn the representatives there are 74 million disenfranchised voters who voted for Trump who are not going away, “. . . come back with your shield or on it!” Links to representatives in AZ, GA, MI, NV, PA, and WI. While not yet time for pitchforks and shovels, this has been done before. Shortly after WWII, Tennessee citizens faced a similar vote fraud by a corrupt government in McMinn County, “The Battle of Athens, Tennessee 1946.” Nov. 3, 2020, a new day of infamy, a devious covert attack shook the United States of America to its core. This attack was worse than Pearl Harbor or 9/11. The perpetrators were our elitist aristocracy and political class that reject the concept of self-governing by We the People. Complicit were our unelected administrative state, the Deep State, the mainstream media (MSM), Big Tech, The New World Order (Globalists – The Great Reset), and hostile foreign governments, specifically China. This evil coalition seeks to subvert the People’s will by undermining our core beliefs, sovereignty, and overthrowing our government as created by our founders. As President Lincoln said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” […] Is Joe Biden a compromised Manchurian Candidate? A puppet used by dark handlers to implement the radical agenda of the Leftists and Marxists? Their manifesto is the antitheses of the People’s rights, “. . . endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” as declared in the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution – the free will of men and women. These allegations pose severe national security consequences from China to the United States should former Vice President Joe Biden serve as President.
