Rep. Ken Buck: ‘This has to stop. We can’t let Antifa continue terrorizing our country’

Ben Wilson Jul 28, 2020

Amidst a tense and interruption-filled hearing, Representative Ken Buck (R-CO) used a portion of his time to speak to Attorney General Barr, his fellow members, and Americans watching about the dangers Antifa poses to the nation — and why they must be stopped.

Buck referenced a peaceful pro-police rally held in his home state of Colorado. Families and older individuals were among the rally-goers who joined to express their appreciation for the men and women in blue.

“Counter protestors were given plenty of space to advocate their message,” Buck said. “But as the afternoon wore on, a swarm of violent Antifa thugs infiltrated peaceful Black Lives Matter counter protestors and began assaulting pro-police Americans.”

The Congressman said the local police were ordered to retreat once members of Antifa were seen at the rally. He highlighted one lieutenant who stayed to protect the peaceful protestors.

Trump’s new war: Punishing China for human rights, military aggression and economic harm

onald Trump, who earlier this year took out Iran’s longtime military chief in a drone strike, is acting like a wartime president again. But this time there isn’t any need for artillery.

Instead, he is moving with a speed and ferocity seldom seen in diplomacy to punish Communist China for its record of human rights, military aggression and economic harm.

The president added two more volleys on Tuesday during a Rose Garden event, this time to protest China’s crackdown on the once autonomous city of Hong Kong, one of the Far East’s economic jewels.

Over the last few months, he has taken nearly a dozen actions ranging from cutting off American investments in Chinese state companies to refusing to acknowledge Beijing has any territorial rights over the South China Sea.

And while primarily security policy issues, Trump and his team have used the diplomatic crusade against China to reeducate Americans about the evils of socialism, communism and human rights abuses that some on the far left have recently embraced.

For some experts, it’s an onslaught that is good for America’s security and good for the president’s re-election standing with blue collar workers and middle-class workers who saw the devastating impact of China’s economic warfare on their jobs and income over the last two decades.

“People have got to turn to and get on top of this and get back to what won in ’16, at least these economic issues,” former Trump strategist Steve Bannon told Just the News recently.

Why In-Person Schooling Would Be One of the Safest Activities to Reopen

Most students around the country haven’t been to school since March, when large parts of the country began to lock down in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the data increasingly suggests that reopening schools entails the least risks and should be a goal of every level of government.

The early hope was that the closures would be temporary, such as Michigan’s school-closure order that was originally meant to end in April—but that was extended for the rest of the school year.

Now, with the 2020-2021 school year fast approaching, what do we do about schools?

School closures have been a particular burden on families during the pandemic, but new information increasingly shows that school-age children are at the lowest risk of mortality, of severe disease, and possibly of even contracting the virus.

Reopening the schools may be one of the safest activities the nation can restart with tremendous benefit for Americans, and governments should make it their goal to do so.

There are several studies that suggest children are less likely to be infected by the virus. A pediatric organization, Don’t Forget the Bubbles, compiled some of those and found that children were consistently less likely than adults to contract the virus.

For instance, a study from Japan found that the COVID-19 attack rate among those younger than 20—that is to say, the rate at which those exposed become infected—was 5.5%.

Compare that to the attack rate among adults ages 50 to 59, which was 22.1%. The relative risk of children contracting the disease after an exposure was about one-fourth that of adults ages 50 to 59.

FBI Director: China is greatest threat to the US


“China is engaged in a whole-of-state effort to become the world’s only superpower by any means necessary,” FBI Director Christopher Wray warned in a lecture in Washington on Tuesday. He outlined those means as “a far-reaching campaign of economic espionage, data and monetary theft and illegal political activities, using bribery and blackmail to influence US policy.” Wray added: We’ve reached a point where the FBI is now opening a new China-related counterintelligence case ever 10 hours.” The FBI chief accused Chinese President Xi Jinping of initiating a program called “Fox Hunt” to force Chinese expats to return home.

With the NBA virtually bowing down and kissing the boots of China, makes you wonder what is going on? LeBron James is so pro China he has to be getting paid. China is in a much better position to wreck havoc on our elections than Russia or Ukraine. Wonder why Biden and the rest of D.C. seems oblivious to the threat? Oh yeah, I remember we do deals with China.

Communist China’s Silent War Against America

For decades, the CCP has been using ‘unrestricted warfare’ to weaken the US from within BY BOWEN XIAO

Stealthily, surreptitiously, and with sweeping precision, the Chinese Communist Party has launched a decades long war against America for world domination utilizing a military strategy known as “unrestricted warfare” that continues today. The idea is to attack the enemy’s nerve centers without directly harming anything else. A “kinder warfare” with critical attacks that takes no lives. China is buying our land, holding some of our debt, stealing our technology, with seemingly no fear or concern from our politicians. It’s all a global war that we in America seem not to alarmed about.

Job Numbers Show Why Congress Shouldn’t Rush to Pass Another Massive Stimulus Package by Rachel Greszler

For a second month in a row, the U.S. economy gained a record number of jobs.

Following job gains of 2.7 million in May, the economy added  4.8 million more jobs in June.

And even as the labor force grew by 1.7 million workers, the unemployment rate fell by 2.2 percentage points, from 13.3% to 11.1%.

While unemployment is still high, the faster-than-expected turnaround and record gains show the resiliency of the American economy and prove that this is not another Great Recession.

True Patriots

Where are the true Patriots in this country?  You know the ones I’m talking about, they bleed red, white, and blue.  They stand for what is right regardless of the consequences.  Our founding fathers fought a war of independence against insurmountable odds, many in their 20’s and early 30’s, and we have members of Congress that have been serving for decades with no change and no voice for the True Patriot that fights every day for the good of this country.  I look for a true moral  conservative voice to ring out and call out the demigods of the radical left.  Take no prisoners, speak the truth, stand for what is right and defend the Constitution.  Now is not the time to compromise our convictions to make a few friends on the D.C. party circuit!  Oh we have some that are ringing their hands, clutching their pearls and sweating bullets trying to decide what to do.  Let me tell you what to do.

  1. Get on your knees and pray.
  2. Stand for the values that made America strong and a leader in the world.
  3. Speak up for the Constitution
  4. Back this President 100%.
  5. Listen to your constituents.

Stop the violence, call out the troops, restore order.  Remember your oath of office, “support and defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic.”

God Bless the United States of America.
