Frontiers of Freedom Action Super PAC TV Spot: ASKS ARIZONA MEDIA TO “STAND UP TO CORRUPT NATIONAL MEDIA”

NEWS RELEASE

“Cracking the code against Senate Democrats like Arizona’s Mark Kelly” PAC hopes “all Republicans will steal this ad.”

— “Doubling down in Phoenix” with a long format 2-minute ad that now has a 1-minute “chaser” on “Biden’s key enabler.”  VIEW SPOT

— One “screen” in spot accusing Kelly of “corrupt bargain” drawing heavy attention and donations.

WASHINGTON D.C. — Announcing a new wave of TV ads against endangered Democrat Senator Mark Kelly, SUPER PAC President George Landrith says his group, Frontiers of Freedom Action, is doubling its broadcast buy (nightly and morning news) for a 2-minute spot asking Arizona media to stand up to a “corrupt national media” by making Kelly answer charges he is “liberal extremist and has the voting record to prove it.”

(For more information, contact PAC President George Landrith at 703-901-5464)

One ‘screen’ in particular in the TV spot is drawing heavy attention and donor response Landrith says

  —  a photo of radical-left New York Representative Ocasio-Cortez and 3 other Representatives who make a far-left congressional group the media dubbed “The Squad” with the headline emblazoned across it — ‘CORRUPT BARGAIN” as the ad’s voice-over charges:

    “Mark Kelly made a corrupt bargain with left-wing extremists to not run a primary against him if he pushed far-left positions”

    Accusing Kelly of “going to the big city and forgetting the people who sent him there” the ad asks Arizona press and network affiliates to end Kelly’s “free ride” and make him respond to questions like

   “Why did he let his fear of a primary make him cave into the left-wing extremist “squad’?”

  “How can he say he isn’t a left-wing extremist if every time he votes like one?

WHY IT CRACKS THE CODE

“Kelly and all other Senate Democrats were so terrified that Ocasio Cortez and her left-wing billionaire allies would run primary campaigns against them they voted right down the extremist line.

“The reason this cracks the code is that many people find it hard to believe that their home state senator or local representative could really be so left wing but once they get an explanation for why it happened they are willing to vote against the Dems. Polling shows that even if they like their Senators they will vote against them if they voted for Biden’s and the Democrats’ agenda.”

“THIS SENATE RACE IS NOT A PERSONALITY CONTEST. KELLY’S OPPONENT IS A GREAT CANDIDATE BUT EVEN IF HE WEREN’T THE ISSUE IS KELLY’S LEFT WING EXTREMIST VOTING IN THE SENATE” Landrith said.

THE NEW 1-MINUTE “CHASER”

One conservative website called an earlier version of the spot (directed against Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer) “The greatest ad in the history of campaign ads” and said “Every MAGA candidate should imitate its format.”

Landrith explained, however, a 1-minute “chaser” (VIEW SPOT) now follows the 2-minute spot that summarizes what the viewer has just seen. (A 3-minute web version is also available:  VIEW SPOT). The ads began on Sunday morning and will run on the nightly and morning news through the week.

“These are not 30-second attack ads that try to manipulate people, but heavily informative narrative ads that ask Mark Kelly when he will reject extremist liberal views and plans,” Landrith said.

“BIDEN ENABLER”

 In addition to saying Kelly’s “free ride” from the national media means he never has to disown left-wing extremist groups that support him, the spot also spends much of its time charging that Kelly was a key “Biden enabler.” Accusing him of being “the 50th Senator” in a closely divided Senate who could easily have stopped Biden debacles like the border crisis, the spot show vivid footage of illegal border crossings.

WHY THE “EXTREMIST” CHARGE IS KEY

“The reason Joe Biden and Democrats are trying to use the ‘extremist’ charge against Republicans is they realize it is their own biggest vulnerability.”

“Mark Kelly is perfect example of why a Red Wave is coming in states like Arizona” the SUPERPAC PRESIDENT SAYS. “He wants to run as a moderate but like every Senate Democrat he is imperiled by his corrupt bargain with the left which said in effect: ‘Don’t primary me and I will vote your way.’”

SPOT CHARGES KELLY’S “FREE RIDE” FROM NATIONAL MEDIA MEANS HE HAS “NEVER HAD TO DENOUNCE” EXTREMISTS WHO WANT TO DEFUND THE POLICE OR DEMOCRATS “dark money alliance with notorious anti-American billionaire George Soros, to opposition to school reform and parental rights, as well as the destruction of women’s sports and childhood education with “gender lunacy.”

SPOT WANTS TO “Make The Media The 2022 Issue”

In calling national media “the most powerful and corrupt institutions in America” seeking to “smear” GOP candidates and protect their own “chosen candidates,” the SPOT asks voters to “send a message to the media bosses” who are “corrupting American journalism” and give them a “miserable election night” by asking Kelly for answers

“Get back at those who have corrupted journalism and seek to crush dissent and smear Kelly’s opponent.”

Spot cites MEDIA AS AMERICA’S MOST CORRUPT INSTITUTIONS COVERED UP 1) China virus leak, 2) Hunter Biden laptop scandal, 3) illegal wrongdoing by Clinton and Biden, 4) FBI harassment of political dissenters, 5) never apologized for two years of its Russian collusion hoax, 6) promoted smears and civil rights violations against conservatives, 7)phony impeachments and show trials.8)covered up Biden’s ill health and incompetence by letting him run from basement.

Amac: PAC Urges Arizona Press to “Stand Up to Corrupt National Media” Over “Extremist” Mark Kelly

By Seamus Brennan

In a two-minute broadcast TV advertisement, a conservative Super PAC is asking the Arizona press to “stand up” to the national media and make “liberal extremist” Senator Mark Kelly answer for his “corrupt bargain” with left-wing radicals in the Democratic Party. The ad also asks Arizona voters to “send a message to the media bosses” who represent “the most corrupt institutions in America.”

In the TV spot and an extended three-minute online version of the ad, the group asks Kelly “how he can say he isn’t a left-wing extremist if every time he votes like one,” and likewise calls on Arizona journalists to question Kelly on his extremist positions on the campaign trail. The ad, which launched Thursday night, is set to run on the Phoenix TV nightly news and Sunday political talk shows through next week.

The Arizona Senate race between Kelly and Republican Blake Masters—widely expected to be one of the most competitive in the nation—could determine which party controls the Senate come January 2023. “Mark Kelly is a perfect example of why a red wave is coming in states like Arizona,” said George Landrith, president of Frontiers of Freedom Action, the group that aired the ad. “He wants to run as a moderate, but like every Senate Democrat, he is imperiled by his corrupt bargain with the left which said in effect: ‘Don’t primary me and I will vote your way.’”

The ad’s release comes just days after the group aired a similar TV spot in New York markets, criticizing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) as “the media’s chosen candidate,” which was hailed by one conservative news outlet as the “greatest campaign ad of all time.” Like the New York TV blitz, the first minute of the Arizona spot focuses chiefly on the media for trying to “crush dissent” and hide corruption, displaying headlines about media scandals and smears—including its suppression of the COVID-19 lab leak theory, censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop bombshell, promotion of the Russian collusion hoax, a coverup of Hillary Clinton’s email scandals, and refusal to report on Biden’s blackmailing of the Ukrainian government. The ad also catalogs other political smears, like those against General Michael Flynn, students at Covington Catholic High School, and parents protesting anti-Americanism in their local schools.

The ad goes on to blame the media for elevating Joe Biden to the presidency by letting him run “from his basement” and “covering up his incompetence and ill health.” It then goes on to smear Biden as “the worst president in modern history,” and features videos of him falling up the stairs on Air Force One and taking directions from the Easter Bunny at a White House event with the headline “EASTER BUNNY RUNS WHITE HOUSE EVENT.”

Around the halfway mark of the two-minute TV spot, the ad labels Kelly as Biden’s “key enabler,” noting that he votes with Biden 92 percent of the time and “cast the deciding vote on huge spending bills that cause shattering inflation and recession”—referring to the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act,” which economists predict will even further aggravate inflation and raise costs for Arizona families.

Additionally, the ad notes how attempts by the likes of Biden and Kelly to push a radical takeover of elections—as well as efforts by other Democrats to alter the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Senate, American citizenship, and the Electoral College—represent a “scorched-earth, rule-or-ruin” attack on longstanding American democratic institutions. “The GOP has never gotten across to the people how those bills would have destroyed the secret ballot, but Department of Justice bureaucrats in charge of our elections, abolished citizenship rights, packed the Supreme Court into irrelevance, radically changed the U.S. Senate, and made a few states the only thing that mattered in presidential elections by abolishing the Electoral College,” said Landrith.

The ad concludes with a call for the people of Arizona to “make the media bosses the 2022 issue” before stating that Kelly “was the 50th senator and could have forced Biden and Schumer to stop the deliberate border crisis.” Mark Kelly, the ad goes on to say, “is a symptom of all that is wrong about Washington. Why did Mark Kelly go to the big city and forget the people who sent him there?”

“This Senate race is not a personality contest,” Landrith said. “Kelly’s opponent is a great candidate, but even if he weren’t, this issue is Kelly’s left-wing extremist voting in the Senate.”

Although Kelly has thus far maintained a marginal lead over Masters in statewide polling, the release of the ad could go a long way in further tightening the race and compelling moderates, independents, and disaffected Democrats to reconsider their support for Kelly as their representative in the Senate.

BREITBART: Super PAC Attacking Media, Schumer Expands Ad Buy to Target Mark Kelly

By Joel Pollak

A conservative super PAC that is urging Republicans to target the mainstream media in campaign messages is expanding its ad buy, entering the Arizona race for Senate with TC spots targeting Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ).

As Breitbart News reported last month, the Frontiers of Freedom Action (FFA) super PAC placed ads in regional markets in upstate New York, urging voters to consider the “bargain” that Senate Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) allegedly made to avoid a difficult primary challenge from the likes of democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY): if he would vote and govern from the left, he would be left virtually unopposed in his primary race.

Now, the PAC is making the same case in Arizona, arguing that Kelly — who campaigned as a moderate but has voted with the party’s left since taking office in 2021 — made a similar “corrupt bargain” in his own race.

The PAC has bought airtime for a two-minute ad to air during 10 p.m. television news shows in Phoenix, to run on Thursday night and on Sunday through next week. (See TV Spot above)

It has also released a similar ad on the web: <HERE>

The ads allege that Kelly was the chief “Biden enabler,” and that as the “50th Senator” he could have stopped some of the most radical legislation to pass through the chamber, but refused to do so.

The implied contrast is with Sen. Kirsten Sinema (D-AZ), who has joined Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) in opposing some left-wing initiatives and defending the filibuster that enshrines the rights of the minority.

The ad encourages viewers and voters to pressure their local media outlets to ask questions of Kelly, and urges them to see the 2022 midterms as a way to “sed a message” to a corrupt media establishment.

Kelly faces a challenge from Republican Blake Masters in the upcoming November election.

MAKE “LIBERAL EXTREMIST” MARK KELLY ANSWER  “CORRUPT BARGAIN” ALLEGATION

Mark Kelly made a corrupt bargain with left-wing extremists to not run a primary against him if he pushed far-left positions” — TV spot. 

Ask “local press” and Arizona news “affiliates” to hold Kelly “accountable on the campaign trail” by asking —

           “Why did he let his fear of a primary make him cave in to the left-wing extremist “squad”? 

           “How can he say he isn’t a left-wing extremist if every time he votes like one?” 

         

PHOENIX TV  PUSH:  2 – MINUTE SPOT (https://youtu.be/29shDBn8JYQ) ON PHOENIX NIGHTLY NEWS AND SUNDAY NEWS SHOWS AND 3-MINUTE WEB RELEASE (https://youtu.be/Mz6rujONihg) also says KELLY WAS  “CHIEF BIDEN-SCHUMER ENABLER” AND “AS 5OTH SENATOR” COULD HAVE STOPPED THE DEBACLES. BUT HE NEVER DID!

“He was the deciding vote in the Senate and could have forced Biden and Schumer to stop their deliberate border crisis.”

“Instead he became a Biden-Schumer enabler and gave them everything they wanted.”

END MARK KELLY’S ‘FREE RIDE’ FROM THE NATIONAL MEDIA  

“Mark Kelly is a perfect example of why a Red Wave is coming in states like Arizona,” said Frontiers of Freedom Action President, George Landrith. “He wants to run as a moderate, but like every Senate Democrat he is imperiled by his corrupt bargain with the Left which said in effect: ‘Don’t primary me and I will vote your way.’”

“THIS SENATE RACE IS NOT A PERSONALITY CONTEST. KELLY’S OPPONENT IS A GREAT CANDIDATE, BUT EVEN IF HE WEREN’T, THE ISSUE IS KELLY’S CONSISTENT LEFT WING EXTREMIST VOTING IN THE SENATE,” said George Landrith, President of FRONTIERS OF FREEDOM ACTION.

We ask in the TV spot:

           “Why he went to Washington and sided with the left-wing extremists against the people of Arizona?”

           “Why Mark Kelly went to the Big City and forgot the people who sent him there?”

Spot also says:

            “Ask the local news not to give Kelly the free ride that he gets from corrupt national media.”

             “Ask the Arizona media and affiliates to question Mark Kelly on the campaign trail.”

KELLYS  “FREE RIDE” FROM NATIONAL MEDIA MEANS HE HAS NEVER HAD TO DENOUNCE”  EXTREMISTS  WHO WANT TO  DEFUND THE POLICE OR DEMOCRATS “dark money alliance with notorious anti-American billionaire George Soros, to opposition to school reform and parental rights, as well as the destruction of women’s sports and childhood education with “gender lunacy.”

SPOT SAYS “Make The Media The 2022 Issue”

Calling national media  “the most powerful and corrupt institutions in America” seeking to “smear” GOP candidates and protect their own “chosen candidates,”  TV SPOT asks voters to “send a message to the media bosses” who are “corrupting American journalism” and give them a “miserable election night” by asking Kelly for answers 

“Get back at those who have corrupted journalism and seek to crush dissent and who smear Kelly’s opponent.”

TV Spot says — the MEDIA, AS ONE OF AMERICAS MOST CORRUPT INSTITUTIONS, COVERED UP — 1) China virus leak, 2) Hunter Biden laptop scandal, 3) illegal wrongdoing by Clinton and Biden, 4) FBI harassment of political dissenters,  5) never apologized for two years of its Russian collusion hoax, 6) promoted smears and civil rights violations against conservatives, 7) conducted phony impeachments and totalitarian style show trials, and 8) covered up Bidens ill health and incompetence by letting him run from his basement.

THE AD SHOWS KELLY AS BIDEN’S AND SCHUMER’S “CHIEF ENABLER” ON :

           HUGE SPENDING BILLS CAUSING SHATTERING INFLATION AND RECESSION

           SHUT DOWN PIPELINES, DROVE UP GAS PRICES

Frontiers of Freedom Action Super PAC TV Spot: Schumer’s Extremism & the Media’s Collusion

. . – . .

AMAC — PAC to Senate GOP: Attack Crooked Media and Schumer’s “Corrupt Bargain with Extremists”

. . – . .

An Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC) Exclusive by Seamus Brennan

. . – . .

In an upstate New York TV blitz alleging that the media is “the most powerful and corrupt institution in America” seeking to “smear” GOP candidates and protect their own “chosen candidates,” a conservative Super PAC is asking voters to “send a message to the media bosses” who are corrupting American journalism and give them a “miserable election night” bydefeating Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

. . – . .

In addition to focusing on Schumer as President Joe Biden’s “chief enabler”—complete with news footage of various Biden foreign and domestic policy fiascos—the strikingly vivid two-minute spot features an image of the far-left Democraticrepresentatives known as the “Squad,” led by Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY), and charges: “Schumer made a corrupt bargain with left-wing extremists to not run a primary against him if he pushed far-left positions.”

. . – . .

The ad then lists Schumer’s close ties to radical groups that he has “never had to denounce,” which seek to “defund the police” and “destroy the New York City Police Department.” It also targets Schumer’s “dark money alliance with notorious anti-American billionaire George Soros, who funded all the lawless prosecutors like Alvin Bragg” (a controversial soft-on-crime New York City district attorney). It also ties Schumer to opposition to school reform and parental rights, as well as the destruction of women’s sports and childhood education with “gender lunacy.”

. . – . .

The ad, which launched on Thursday, August 25 on nightly news programs in the Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse markets,is set to run through next week.

. . – . .

“Our ad is a template for all Republican candidates because every single Senate Democrat—Mark Kelly(D-AZ), Raphael Warnock (D-GA), Maggie Hassan(D-NH), and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NM)—agreed to vote with the far-left wing of the party so long as they didn’t have to face a primary,” said George Landrith, Chairman of Frontiers of Freedom Action(FFA),the group who ran the ad.

. . – . .

“Any one of them, as the 50th Senator, could have stopped the Biden agenda—but they didn’t, because they put the wishes of the far left above the wishes oftheir constituents. They essentially said, ‘Don’t primary me, and I will vote your way,’” Landrith said.

. . – . .

“Most people in these states still find it hard to believe these Senators became extremists,” Landrith continued,“but when you explain why they were so frightened of a well-financed primary challenge, they understand.”

. . – . .

“The corrupt media’s firestorm of attacks on Republican candidates is coming in the fall, and the only way to stop it is to get ahead of it,” Landrith said,a theme echoed by an ad released by Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) this week, which attracted attention for taking aim at the corruption of the corporate media.

. . – . .

The first minute of the New York ad focuses predominantly on the media for trying to “crush dissent” and hide corruption,after displaying headlines about media scandals and smears—including its handling of the China Virus leak, censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story, promotion of the Russian collusion hoax, coverup for Hillary Clinton’s email scandals, and refusal to report on Biden’s blackmailing of the Ukrainian government. The ad also lists other political smears, like those against General Michael Flynn, students at Covington Catholic High School, and parents protesting anti-Americanism in their local schools.

. . – . .

The FFA ad goes on to blame the media for electing Joe Biden “by letting him run “from his basement” and “covering up his incompetence and ill health.” The ad also deems him to be “the worst president in modern history,” and features videos of Biden falling up the stairs on Air Force One and taking directions from the Easter Bunny at a White House event with the headline “EASTER BUNNY RUNS WHITE HOUSE EVENT.”

. . – . .

The spot then quickly switches to a photo of Schumer as “Biden’s chief enabler” and shows footage of a gleeful Biden and Schumer at a White House signing event for legislation that the GOP and most economistssay will drive inflation higher.

. . – . .

“First, you have the networks and newspapers. Second, you have the left-wing extremists like Chuck Schumer who run the Democratic Party. We are saying they are one and the same entity,” Landrith charged.

. . – . .

“Our ad changes the false media narrative from the supposed imperfections of GOP candidates to the massive national disadvantage of Democrats. Every single Senate Democrat is imperiled by their Biden identification, and especially by their corrupt bargain with the leftists that have taken over their party,” Landrith said.

. . – . .

Landrith is also optimistic that by focusing on the media’s deliberate one-sidedness—from its partisan coverage of this month’s Mar-a-Lago raid to itshabitual protection of Democratic candidates and politicians—the ad could elicit turnout from moderate or independent voters concerned with media corruption and the radicalism of Schumer’s agenda. “It’s very important to control the word ‘extremist,’” he said.

. . – . .

Additionally, the ad notes the Biden-Pelosi-Schumer attempt to push a radical takeover of elections—as well as efforts by other Democrats to alter the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Senate, American citizenship, and the Electoral College—represents a“scorched-earth rule-or-ruin” attack on longstanding American democratic institutions.

. . – . .

“The GOP has never gotten across to the people how those bills would have destroyed the secret ballot, putDepartment of Justice bureaucrats in charge of our elections, abolished citizenship rights, packed the Supreme Court into irrelevance, radically changed the U.S. Senate, and made a few states the only thing that mattered in presidential elections by abolishing the Electoral College,” said Landrith.

. . – . .

The spot’s release comes nearly two months ahead of the November 8 midterm elections, as Democrats amp up their fight to retain their control of Congress. Though Schumer himself at the moment is not regarded as politically vulnerable going into the fall midterms, FFA notes that some segments of the New York population—particularly upstate New York—might be receptive to attacks on Schumer’s startling record of radicalism. Just as ad campaigns in last fall’s New Jersey gubernatorial race (another deep-blue state) yielded far closer results than initially anticipated, FFA hopes that it can help to replicate the close matchup with this week’s spot.

. . – . .

“New Jersey could have a GOP Governor today if the D.C. establishment wasn’t so cautious,” Landrithstated. “Republicans need to stop playing defense and expand the Senate map.”

. . – . .

As Election Day draws closer and Democrats continue to accelerate their attacks against Republican candidates, FFA’s ad could help to expose Schumer’s radical agenda in a way the mainstream media has failed to do. And should it succeed, FFA’s strategy could prove instrumental in holding Schumer and other far-left politicians across the nation accountable for the first time in recent memory.

The Coming Humiliation of the People’s Republic of China

By Dr. Miklos K. RadvanyiFrontiers of Freedom

The most dangerous and destructive people on earth are the self-aggrandizing misanthropes who hold omnipotent hatred for the rest of humanity rooted in the unshakeable belief of their absolute racial superiority.  Heightened tensions that have been created in the second decade of the 21st century by President Xi Jinping’s so-called “Chinese Dream,” his illegal maritime expansion across the Pacific Ocean, his soft globalism in Europe, Africa as well as South America under the guise of the “Belt and Road Initiative,” and most recently, his pre-invasion saber-rattling over the Republic of China, also known as Taiwan, call into memory the historical thesis about Han cultural superiority as well as the Chinese imperial “benevolent authority cum oppressive dominance” of its neighbors for the past three millennia.  Over glorifying the superiority of “five thousand years of Chinese culture,” while being outrageously numb about its countless devastating catastrophes for the Chinese people and the rest of its neighboring countries, this tyrannical prophet of “Socialism with Chinese characteristics” defines the competition between the People’s Republic of China and the rest of the world as a cosmic confrontation of irreconcilable ideological antagonism between democratic liberalism and Marxist “class warfare.”  In reality, President Xi’s worldview is nothing but the automatic  rehashing of Confucius’s antediluvian hierarchical regime, in which a minority rules absolutely over the majority with expected wisdom and benevolence.  Thus, in President Xi’s future global paradise, the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Committee and its Politburo from their Olympian Heights would exercise a benign tyranny over their racially inferior states across the globe.

Contrary to the incessantly lying official Chinese propaganda, however, the People’s Republic of China’s path to utopian Communism is more an ideological garbage than a well-planned road to ubiquitous prosperity for mankind.  As I already opined in a Frontiers of Freedom’s publication on August 6, 2012, and in a follow-up editorial on August 9, 2012, in The Washington Times, “China’s Approaching Implosion,” historically, China has been driven by permanent tensions between the despotic state’s boundless hostility toward society and the frequently violent anti-state sentiments of the Chinese people.  Turning Deng Xiaopeng’s dictum of “Black cat or white cat, if it can catch mice, it’s a good cat,” into protecting the Chinese economy from the evil political influences of the democratic West under the slogan of “Chinese self-reliance” as well as “new development concept,” the future President for Life Xi Jinping in his ideological blindness is completely destroying his overambitious country.  Instead of filling his concept with pragmatic content, he has subordinated sound economic strategy to empty promises concerning the eradication of the covid pandemic with useless Chinese vaccines and the stemming out of devastating corruption in the real estate market, in connection with the domestic banking sector.  This ideological curse has resulted in protracted stagnation of domestic production and in sizable decline of the export as well as import of goods and services.  Moreover, his attempts to promote China’s national currency internationally have been exposed as another mixed bag in President Xi’s amateurish “dog and pony show.”  

Since foreign policy has always been a function of domestic policies, President Xi’s most recent Taiwan adventure is as discombobulated as his phantom “Socialism cum Communism with Chinese Characteristics.”  His and his colleagues’ belligerent threats of imminent invasion must be taken very seriously.  Therefore, the Democratic Republic of China and its supporters must be ready to repel this illegal aggression.  Letting Beijing have its way in Taiwan, will embolden President Xi to expand China’s presence internationally by state-led military means to serve its nefarious political interests.  The policy must be unequivocal:  if China attacks, it must be defeated.  This defeat must be crushing and extremely humiliating for President Xi personally too.  Relentlessly bombarded by the Communist Party’s slogan of “turn your heart to the General Secretary,” meaning Xi Jinping, the United States of America, its European and Asian allies cannot show mercy to the tyrant. 

Although the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda machine has succeeded, for the being, to convince the majority of the people that in the present troubled times internationally the country needs a strong leader, the accompanying revival of the ‘Cult of Personality” will unquestionably lead to total political, economic and financial catastrophe.  Again, contrary to President Xi and his colleagues’ belief, the People’s Republic of China will never become the hegemon of the world.  Its quintessentially racist ideology, hidden in the utopian idealism of prostituted Marxism, is the proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing.  

Yet, only reacting and building defenses against global Chinese ambitions are not enough.  The United States of America and its allies must take the initiative and expose in its entirety the evil nature of Chinese expansionism.  To demonstrate the urgent need to stand up to Beijing, it would suffice to call attention to the most recent vote of China on August 10, 2022, in the United Nations Security Council concerning its veto of listing Abdul Rauf Ashgar as a global terrorist.  Having been the long-serving deputy emir of Pakistani jihadi organization Jaish-e-Muhammad, he has planned and actively participated in countless terrorist acts in Pakistan, India, Afghanistan and beyond.  The Chinese representative was the single opponent of Resolution 1267 of the Sanction Committee.  Clearly, if allowed, China’s exclusively ideological globalism will transform into genocidal terrorism.  For all these reasons, the People’s Republic of China must be stopped before it might destroy the planet.


The Ingrates of Vienna

The Biden administration’s desperate quest for an Iran Deal projects weakness

After 16 Months, Some Glimmers of Optimism About Iran Nuclear Deal

New York Times, August 16, 2022

This is where you’d put a confused face emoji.

Why? Because one of the above headlines is unlike the others. The first two stories reveal the nature of the Iranian regime—a gang of criminal theocrats that since 1979 has spread chaos and murder throughout the world. The third headline reveals the gullibility of Western politicians and diplomats who, despite never-ending reminders of the Islamic Republic’s aims and capacities, persist in trying to appease it.

Negotiations to revive the Iran nuclear deal have been taking place in Vienna since April 2021. They have gone nowhere. Yet the Biden administration insists on playing a starring role in this diplomatic farce. Nothing that happens in the outside world penetrates the bubble where the diplomats reside.

Some history:

 Iran refused to speak to the United States directly. We obliged. The talks are indirect—a sign of American weakness.

 Ali Khamenei ensured that his potential successor, Ebrahim Raisi, a hardline cleric sanctioned by the United States, was “elected” president last summer. Not only did we continue negotiations. We are also now debating whether to provide Raisi an entry visa so he can spout regime propaganda at the U.N. General Assembly next month.

 America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, one year old this week, seriously undermined our credibility and our security. It weakened our influence in the Greater Middle East. Yet Biden didn’t change his foreign policy. He doubled down on his Iran gambit.

 Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last February was a hinge of history—a moment when, we have been told, “everything” changed. Everything but the Iran negotiations. Russia, despite its outlaw status on the international stage, continues to serve as Iran’s intermediary. Maybe we should take the hint?

All this happened in the months before the Bolton assassination plot and the attack on Rushdie. And those violations of U.S. sovereignty and rule of law are related to Iranian malfeasance. The Justice Department charged a member of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) for attempting to hire a hit man who would target the former U.S. national security adviser. Rushdie’s assailant may have been in contact with the IRGC, as well, and was unquestionably inspired by the Islamic Republic of Iran’s first Supreme Ruler, Ayatollah Khomenei, who called for the British-American novelist’s death in 1989.

And what, you ask, does Iran continue to demand of the United States as a condition for reentry into the nuclear deal? In a piece for CNBC headlined, “A renewed Iran nuclear deal appears closer than ever. Here are the final sticking points,” Natasha Turak writes, “Iran wants the Biden administration to remove its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from its [i.e., America’s] designated terrorist list, which so far Washington seems unwilling to do.”

Imagine that.

Biden would be committing political seppuku if he removes the IRGC from the terror list. Even he can see the danger there. He’d be handing the beleaguered Republicans an issue in the final months before the midterms. It has the potential to taint media coverage of his supposed diplomatic triumph.

The IRGC “sticking point” is politically troubling. Another sticking point is impossible. Iran wants the United States to guarantee that future presidents will abide by the deal. However, the only constitutional way to do this would be to submit the nuclear agreement to the Senate for treaty confirmation. Of course, Biden can’t do that, because the treaty would fail. Leaving Biden at an impasse.

One he refuses to acknowledge. Perhaps the Biden team is now so full of themselves after a string of legislative victories at home that they are ready to make additional concessions to get what they mistakenly believe will be a victory abroad. The press will love this narrative, of Biden going from strength to strength and win to win, no matter the costs to U.S. security and stability in the Persian Gulf and Shiite Crescent.

Another scenario is that, while neither Iran nor America agrees to this latest proposal, the talks continue intermittently because they serve each party’s goals. Iran is using this time to build its nuclear infrastructure. America doesn’t want to face the hard choices that follow from a recognition that diplomacy has failed.

That is why all peace processes or arms control negotiations continue despite the evidence that they achieve nothing. The process itself becomes an end for the West. Meanwhile, the process serves as cover for the West’s enemies.

“We have a miserable, bipartisan track record of not responding to Iranian aggression and terrorism,” Reuel Marc Gerecht of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies observed the other day. Biden has an opportunity to correct the record by demonstrating American strength in response to Iranian outrages. It’s an opportunity he won’t take.


Putin The Delusional Russian

By Dr. Miklos K. RadvanyiFrontiers of Freedom

Having lost his Soviet-era KGB job in East Germany,  the unemployed former lieutenant colonel embarked on a political career in his hometown of St. Petersburg.  Moved to Moscow by his political godfather Anatoly Sobchak and subsequently named acting president on December 31, 1999 by Boris Yeltsin, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin first ascended to the presidency of the Russian Federation on May 7, 2000.  Initially, applying the time tested fallacious formula of his predecessors, he presented himself to the gullible American and European leaders as a young as well as a westernized politician whose only dream is to transform his country into a genuine democratic state.  After having secured the economic and financial benefits of this historic Russian hoax from the West, he told his compatriots in his annual state of the nation address in April 2005:  “…the demise of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the (20th) century.”  However, not being satisfied with this short declaration, he continued thus:  “As for the Russian people, it became a genuine tragedy.  Tens of millions of our fellow citizens and countrymen found themselves beyond the fringes of Russian territory.” 

To up the ante of his fabricated historical doctrine of Russian victimhood, Putin gave a speech on February 10, 2007, at the Munich Security Conference, in which, for the first time, he sharply criticized the United States of America’s global dominance and it’s “almost uncontained hyper use of force in international relations.”  This resurrection of the Cold War animosity proved that the centuries-old Russian inferiority complex remained politically as alive as the Tsarist-Communist attempts at bringing Russia closer to an Asiatic tyranny.  The Conventional Armed Forces in Europe Treaty also went out of the window.  In 2008, he invaded Georgia and took away Abkhazia and South-Ossetia.  In 2014, he annexed Crimea and occupied the Donbas region.  Simultaneously, Putin has embarked on methodically rebuilding the Russian military, including its nuclear modernization.  Domestically, he has become a tyrant with unlimited powers.  The legislature has turned into an automatic voting machine.  The judiciary has been totally subordinated to his political objectives.  The media has been brought under his absolute control.  The economy was reprivatized by his own oligarchs.  The stage was set for the reign of uncontrolled tyranny with the wholesale expulsion of reason from politics, the economy and Putin’s ability to resolve inherent conflicts rooted in the past as well as the present inside Russia and beyond.  These seeds of future collapse of Putin’s tyrannical regime have been strengthened by the illegal invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022.

Almost all of the tragic catastrophes of history owe their birth to the deluded minds of tyrants with a destructive penchant for the establishment of made-up realities.  President Putin is no exception.  First, desiring to recreate the non-existent glory of the Tsarist as well as the Soviet empires, he has constructed a completely false reality.  Accordingly, claiming that the 10th century Kyivan Rus is the real foundation of today’s Russia, he commissioned a statue of the first Kyivan prince Volodymyr in 2016, a clear sign of the pathological denial of the actual embrace of Christianity in the 10th century.  A second mentally sick political fiction was his definition of the illegal annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, terming the forced return of the peninsula “the revival of the Russian world” (in Russian: Russkiy Mir).  Moreover, knowing that there are sufficient number of gullible Russians and even uneducated idiots within the Russian Federation, he reverted to the well-tested Russian ethno-racism branding the elected leaders of Ukraine neo-Nazis and even traitors to their country.  Finally, having unleashed the greatest war since 1945 in Europe, he characterized the illegal invasion as a “special military operation” (in Russian: O provedenii specialnoy voennoy operacii).  Having reduced his illegal war to a linguistic phenomenon, he successfully  demonstrated his hatred for peace, stability and cooperation with the rest of the world.  More importantly, he also showed his uncompromising longing for the re-Stalinization of Russia under his absolute authority.  

Expectedly, President Putin’s psychopathic idiocy initially was met with the equally idiotic Western response of blaming themselves for the unsuccessful integration of the Russian Federation into the new world order.  This internationalization of “political correctness,” has only emboldened President Putin to prove the total failure of Western appeasement toward his outsized ambitions.  Predictably, regional violence and attempted global criminality on the part of the Russian Federation have increased as well as multiplied.  Russians in general and Russian soldiers in particular have been told that they are exceptional and, therefore, so much better than everybody else.  Adding insult to injury, they have also been inculcated with the belief that they should show no empathy to the non-Russians, because they are inherently good and their terrorism is only triggered by their non- Russian enemies. 

To fully grasp President Putin’s delusional psychopathy for bringing about a new era of Russian domination, it is sufficient to look at his conduct of the war with Ukraine.  What started out as a military Blitzkrieg has turned into a genocidal all-out annihilation of the sovereign state of Ukraine and its people.  By now, however, it is becoming crystal clear that this delusional man has committed a catastrophic blunder.  Russian colonialism is not coming to Ukraine or elsewhere.  What will visit the Russian Federation is the inevitable collapse of President Putin’s tyrannical regime.  

In conclusion, Russians must not ask the question:  “Who did this catastrophe to us?”  Rather they should ask:  “What have we been doing wrong to always end up in hopeless misery?”  The answer should be unequivocal:  Russia must become a normal country and not the prey of psychopathic leaders or unconscionable gamblers.


China: Biting The Hand That Feeds It

By Dr. Miklos K. RadvanyiFrontiers of Freedom

Proof that the idiocy of intellectuals in academia and of hopelessly incompetent bureaucrats ensconced in their ivory towers knows no limit has been demonstrated abundantly in the post-Mao treatment of the People’s Republic of China by the United States of America, the member states of the European Union and other states allied with them.  Having anointed themselves “foreign policy realists,” they declared that they alone have found the all encompassing diacatholicon to all the problems of mankind by always yielding to the blasterous threats of every tyrannical regime on earth.  Specifically, under the dictum that “no one should humiliate the People’s Republic of China,” which in practice has meant endless concessions to Beijing, the democratic nations across the globe in general and the United States of America in particular, have been declared “warmongers” when they refused to lose or be humiliated by the tyrant de jour in mainland China.  As always, the United States of America  has been singled out for relentless criticism of its alleged animosity against the hard working Chinese people who want nothing else but to become as free and prosperous as their kins in the West.  Clearly, these baseless theoretical illusions have shown the unrealistic yearning of these self-appointed foreign policy Messiahs for a world in which tyrannical aggressors always have their ways to the detriment of all the peace loving peoples worldwide.  President Biden’s and his son’s corrupt dealings with the highest echelons of the Chinese Communist Party during the former’s tenure as Vice President only reinforced Beijing’s belief in as well as contempt for the decadent and greedy American politicians who would sell out their country for enriching themselves personally. 

While this intellectual nonsense as well as political corruption are strategically as well as morally revolting, it surely has motivated tyrants all over the world to at least become more demanding or, in more extreme cases, march to the edge of nuclear abyss.  The Chinese Communist Party-led People’s Republic of China has been no exception.  Beginning twenty years ago, at the turn of the century, Beijing has undertaken the most extensive military buildup since World War II.  In addition to destabilizing the entire continent around the Pacific Ocean, President Xi has openly demanded a new world order, in which his country would be the sole superpower.  Boasting the second largest defense budget after the United States of America, Beijing has claimed sovereignty over almost the entire South China Sea and the surrounding maritime areas.  Defying international law, Beijing has repeatedly threatened free navigation and has aggressively militarized countless coral atolls as well as artificially built additional reefs to expand the offensive capabilities of mainland China beyond its continental shores.  All these have been done in contravention of a United Nations-backed Arbitration Tribunal that invalidated Beijing’s outrageously sweeping claims under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.  Of course, quite imperiously, Beijing dismissed the ruling as “sham” and non-binding on the People’s Republic of China.  

Without a shred of doubt, the China threat is real.  While the White House’s China policy does not extend beyond “preventing war and maintaining peace in Asia,” the recent developments surrounding Taiwan shall force the United States of America and all the affected states on the continent to prepare for war and win it decisively.  Clearly, if invaded, Taiwan will surely be China’s Afghanistan and Ukraine combined.  The recent highly provocative military maneuvers around the independent island, under the pretext of the American House Speaker’s visit, could royally misfire on the Chinese military.  Although better than twenty or even five years ago, the Chinese military is nearly not as strong as Beijing is trying to depict.  Mainly, it has been weakened by a staggering degree of corruption and the almost complete lack of combat experience.  Moreover, the culture of the “one child policy” under Mao, has resulted in generations of spoiled men who have resented discipline.  Finally, the readiness of the Chinese military will prevent a successful invasion and occupation of the Democratic Republic of China.

For all these reasons and challenges, the White House must undertake decisively resolute policies to forge an ironclad containment of the People’s Republic of China.  The United States of America, combined with Japan, India, Vietnam, South Korea, the Philippines and Australia, will always be stronger militarily, economically and financially than the People’s Republic of China.  Although it might sound bold, the White House must contemplate abandoning America’s long standing “One China Policy” and recognize the Democratic Republic of China as a sovereign state that in reality it has been since 1949.  

Historically, as so many Chinese lies, Taiwan has never been originally a part of mainland China.  With the exception of some migration of the Hoklo people from Fujian and Guangdong areas of southern China, the Ming Dynasty only established a base of operation on the island in 1662.  Following the First Sino-Japanese War in 1895, the Qing Dynasty ceded the island, along with Penghu, to the Japanese.  In 1945, the government of the Republic of China, led by the Kuomintang, took control of Taiwan.  In 1949, Chiang Kai-shek established the Democratic Republic of China that includes the islands of Kinmen, Wuqui and Matsu.

Although the United States of America and the European Union have recorded many failures in foreign policies in the last thirty years, the Free World cannot lose against Communist China, as it could not afford to abandon Ukraine to the Russian Federation.  China’s aggression shall be nipped in the bud before it will develop into a full scale illegal war.  Nothing less than the future of a free and peaceful world is at stake.  


Schooling Americans in Today’s Hungary

By Dr. Miklos K. RadvanyiFrontiers of Freedom

The world has never been an earthly paradise.  No human being has ever been perfect.  Most problems, be it personal or universal, have always resisted easy solutions.  Similarly, very few of the myriad challenges that have arisen thus far in history, have been answered permanently.  In the public realm, the chasm between original intentions, be they practical or utopian, and their implementations in practice have never led to unanimous approvals.  Indeed, the quest for individual and universal happiness has remained the unfinished endeavor of mankind.

In reality, politics in its limitless incarnations, has always been a chain of attempts to mobilize the generally indifferent masses for an objectively or subjectively preferable cause.  However, when the cause has been detrimental to human dignity, politics has inevitably turned into a rotten system of government-sanctioned criminality that legitimized the most heinous abuses of power even against its peaceful  opposition.  In these cases, politics became ruled by nacked force, unchecked by the law.  

Today’s Hungary, thirty two years after the end of the Soviet occupation is in the iron grip of a tyrannical regime that possesses absolute contempt for democracy, the rule of law, human rights, individual dignity, and glorifies the perfection of its personification Viktor Orban, the newly minted Fuehrer of Mussolini’s illiberalism, Hitlers ethnic purity, as well as Lenin cum Stalin’s rhetoric of “class enemies.”  Having established a one-party state in 2010, Viktor Orban and his party the Young Democrats (Hungarian acronyms: FIDESZ) have restored Hungary to the pre-1990 state of a Communist Commissariat.  Once again, individual freedom, meritocracy and creativity have been banished to the trash heap of Hungarian history, to be replaced by prejudice, bigotry, obscurantism, unimaginable government corruption and gibberish demagoguery that are pleasing to the ears of the scantily educated but driving the young and educated away from their homeland.  More alarmingly, real politics that is driven by genuine national interests and the knowledge of Hungary’s place and role within NATO and the European Union, has been replaced by the trashing of the  “imperialistic” United States of America, the  “globalist” European bureaucracy in Brussels and the glorification of Hungary’s checkered 20th century past, in particular the allegedly positive accomplishments of the years between the two World Wars.  More importantly, all this nonsense is fanaticised by lingering revanchism and seething resentment of victimhood for losing territories in 1918 as well as 1945 to the neighboring states. 

 As a result, Viktor Orban and Hungary have become useless pariahs in the European Union and strategic nobodies within NATO.  Thus, to compensate for his outcast status within both organizations, Viktor Orban has embarked on a duplicitous foreign policy, in which he attempts to play his very limited Russia as well as China cards against the West.  Having realized that such a foreign policy route necessarily harbors great risks for him personally, he has undertaken to bribe his way into American politics.  Since 2010, his government has spent in direct and indirect payments tens of millions of dollars in Washington, DC, to influence members of Congress and the Executive Branch to accept, and if possible, to spread fallacious propaganda on his behalf.  

Most importantly, the Hungarian government has focused on Richard Carlson and his Policy Impact Strategic Communications that has been doing major lobbying work for Orban Viktor in Washington, DC.  His son Tucker has performed a yeoman’s service for Viktor Orban by promoting the latter’s “conservative paradise” in Fox News Network as well as on Fox Nation.  Moreover, the father-son duo also introduced Matthew Schlapp, the Chairman of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to Viktor Orban.  The resulting CPAC conference in Budapest, Hungary, in mid-May 2022, drew a host of Republican luminaries to Budapest, including Mike Pence, Mark Meadows, Rick Santorum, Candance Owens and Tucker Carlson among others.  Very recently, the CPAC meeting in Dallas, Texas, also featured Viktor Orban as a speaker.  His speech contained an avalanche of lies about his foreign policies as well as the situation in Hungary.  To CPAC and Viktor Orban’s regret the American as well as the Hungarian media provided a devastatingly unflattering coverage of the mendacious speech before an almost completely empty room.  To top this macabre situation, Tucker Carlson, the unfailingly corrupt and uncritical propagandist of Viktor Orban’s tyranny, apologized on his show to Balazs Orban (no relation to the Prime Minister), the Political Director of the Prime Minister’s Office, on behalf of the entire American Media for a CNN report, in which the latter characterized Viktor Orban’s speech in Romania as anti-Semitic.

To make it amply clear – Viktor Orban is not a friend of the United States of America.  Neither is he a representative of Western values, such as individual freedom, free market economy and moral decency.  He is every bit of a corrupt and self-serving narcissist with a perfectly sick personality.  Presenting him as the lone European champion of genuine conservatism is a travesty or even ignominy for all Americans, regardless of their political or ideological affiliations and preferences.  Those who promote Viktor Orban and his “Illiberal Tyranny” must look in the mirror and admit that the only corrupt illusion which is more destructive in politics than self-deception is the complete dearth of knowledge of a given situation in a country.  To every Hungarian’s deepest regret, those Americans are guilty of an extremely unreasonable as well as totally unjustified affection for the Hungarian tyrant. 


The Impermissible Price of Appeasement

By Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

From a historical perspective, appeasement of tyrannical regimes ended, without exceptions, in personal, national, regional, or global catastrophes.  From the expansions of the antediluvian Egyptian and Persian Empires, through the global domination of ancient Rome,  the violent confrontations of the Middle Ages as well as the Napoleonic Wars, to the two World Wars of the 20th century, the tactics of engaging in benign diplomatic compromises without a comprehensive strategy of dealing with the core problems of intolerable ambitions by a person or a nation, inevitably resulted in unmitigated violent anarchies.

Presently, NATO and the European Union have to deal with a mini-tyrant among their midst by the name of Viktor Orban, the long-serving Prime Minister of Hungary.  Predictably, the leaders of the European Union and successive presidents of the United States of America have made the same Chamberlain’s mistake with Viktor Orban as the then British Prime Minister was guilty of at his meeting with Adolf Hitler in Munich, Germany, in 1938.  In the so-called Munich Agreement, in exchange for  Hitler’s promise that if Chamberlain agrees to cede a part of the then Czechoslovakia the so-called Sudetenland to Germany, Nazi Germany shall make no further demands for land in the European continent.  Returning to London, the British Prime Minister declared triumphantly:  “My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honour.  I believe it is peace for our time…Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.”  Of course, the rest is history.

Fast forward to the lasting miserable political, economic, social and moral conditions of Hungary under its Prime Minister Viktor Orban.  Politically, Hungary has become an unabashedly ethno-fascist tyrannical country without a meaningful opposition.  All the media – the printed press, the electronic television stations as well as the overwhelming numbers of social media – are owned and controlled by Viktor Orban and his lackeys, which incessantly spew debilitating regime propaganda.  The economy has only few privileged owners, namely, Viktor Orban’s Strohman Lorinc Meszaros, Viktor Orban’s extended family, his closest associates and their Russian and Chinese buddies.  Socially, most Hungarians exist in the tyrant’s created vacuum of lies believing that their country is a democracy.  In reality, they vegetate within an evil regime that is irredeemably corrupt to its core and have stolen and embezzled everything movable as well as even immovable properties across Hungary.  While depicting himself as the only world champion of peace in Europe, under the guise of protecting the Hungarian people from the consequences of the Russo-Ukrainian war, Viktor Orban added to his absolute powers the permanent condition of state of emergency – just to be sure that no one would challenge his tyranny.

Internationally, don’t be mistaken. Viktor Orban has never been a “Friend of the United States of America.”  To wit, he has fought against the European Union as well as the United States of America tooth and nail to impose onerous sanctions on the aggressor Russian Federation claiming that “without the latter’s gas and oil deliveries Europe would face political upheavals and economic ruin,” as if the West and not Russia were the culprit.  According to Dr. Andras Simonyi, former Ambassador of Hungary to the United States of America and Hungary’s first NATO Ambassador, currently a Senior Fellow with the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center in Washington DC, Viktor Orban’s ranting about “American Imperialism” is akin to the derogatory terms used by the Soviet and like minded Communists during the Cold War.  Elaborating on his statement, Viktor Orban told his audience:  “Although no one knows it, 2013 was  one of the most important years in recent history.  That was the year when Americans began fracking.”  Moreover, Viktor Orban reasoned that the Americans now have greater energy independence that they intend to use as a foreign policy weapon.  The United States has been trying to force Europe into dependence on American energy for years now.  The fact that Americans accuse others of doing the same thing should not lead anyone astray.  Economic imperialism explains why the United States is currently pressuring European governments to implement sanctions against Russia. Thus spoke a pro-American and pro-European leader of a member state.  Also that much for Tucker Carlson’s and Rod Dreher’s incompetent and corrupt interpretations of Viktor Orban’s exemplary “Illiberalism.”  Rejecting diversification and wholly supporting dependence on Russian energy as a clever accomplice to Russia’s attempts at dividing the European Union and NATO, is Viktor Orban’s mission.

The invitation to Viktor Orban to speak at the upcoming CPAC meeting in Dallas, Texas, on August 4, 2022, is a huge mistake. There is no good reason to be associated with Orban’s ideology or his world view.  Considering the additional fact that in his most recent speech in Romania, he harked back to the eternal ethno-chauvinistic and anti-Semitic slogans of past Hungarian politicians by evilishly meditating on the purity of the Hungarian blood, Viktor Orban sunk to the rhetorical foundations of the ugly and catestrophic history of national socialism.

Indeed, Viktor Orban’s tyrannical “Illiberalism” is highly destructive for NATO as well as the European Union.  His success and the inability of any serious opposition to emerge in Hungary is mainly due to the fact that the majority of Hungarians yearn for an authentical strongman who at least verbally is the propagandist of Hungarian independence and the champion of the people in the middle of a global economic crisis and galloping inflation.  Clearly, Viktor Orban’s appeal is more emotional than rational.  Yet, emotions can lead more frequently than not to destructive policies.  For all these reasons, Viktor Orban cannot be stopped domestically.  Therefore, for the sake of the future of NATO and the European Union they collectively must marshall their powers to facilitate the timely demise of the newest tyrant of the Free World.


Pelosi Must Go

To Taiwan

I’m not in the habit of saying that Nancy Pelosi is right. But if she wants to visit Taiwan next month as part of a congressional delegation to several countries in the Indo-Pacific, she really ought to go. Canceling the trip now would be a capitulation to tyranny.

Canceling now would mean that Congress buckled in the face of Chinese threats and the Biden administration wavering. It would establish the principle that Beijing has veto power over the travel plans of senior U.S. officials. It would tell the world that America is more interested in mollifying Xi Jinping than in supporting the democratically elected Tsai Ing-wen. It would be another example of self-deterrence, Biden-style. And America would be weakened.

Pelosi would be the first speaker of the House to visit Taiwan since Newt Gingrich in 1997. The Chinese Communist Party was no happier 25 years ago than they are today. Back then, the People’s Republic said that Gingrich’s support of Taiwan was “improper” and “contradictory.” China’s rhetoric has grown harsher as it has grown stronger. Earlier this year, when Pelosi first scheduled a visit in April, a Chinese government spokesman called it a “malicious provocation.” He pledged that China would respond “resolutely.” Then Pelosi got COVID. She had to cancel.

Last week the Financial Times reported that the trip was back on and rescheduled for August. Once more, the jackals in Beijing began to howl. The enslavers of Xinjiang, the oppressors of Hong Kong, the bullies of the Indo-Pacific acted as if they were the victims. Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian threatened  that China would “take determined and forceful measures to firmly safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity.” The Chinese propaganda machine spoke forebodingly of consequences for the United States. A former editor of Global Times, the Chinese Communist Party’s version of Pravdawrote of Pelosi, “If the U.S. can’t restrain her, let China restrain her & punish her.”

Punish her? Any hostile action taken against the speaker of the House of Representatives, no matter her party and no matter the circumstances, would be an act of war. Is China willing, much less prepared, to provoke armed conflict with the United States over a co-del? If so—and I doubt it—then China is itching for a fight and will ramp up its demands no matter what Pelosi decides.

If the visit does happen, China will respond for sure. But the cost it might impose on U.S.-China relations still will be less than the price of cancellation. Neither China nor the United States is prepared for a major confrontation. Better to take the hit to the relationship now than let Xi Jinping dictate Nancy Pelosi’s—or anyone else’s—itinerary.

As usual, President Biden is not helping. Asked about the controversy on July 20, he said that “The military thinks it’s not a good idea right now” and “I don’t know what the status of it is.” Thanks for letting the world know what the joint chiefs are telling you, Joe. And what a way to go to bat for a fellow Democrat. Another command performance.

Biden’s mention of his upcoming call with Xi—it took place on July 28—suggested that he doesn’t want Congress to get in the way of presidential diplomacy. That’s understandable. The elected branches always compete for foreign-policy influence and prestige. There probably ought to have been closer coordination between the speaker’s office and the White House. But once the visit became the object of China’s vitriol, the only sensible response was to close ranks and defend Pelosi’s right to travel where she pleases, when she pleases.

Why? Because China’s aim isn’t just to stop Pelosi. It wants gradually to isolate Taiwan by coercing the United States into abandoning a longtime ally. It wants to replace the United States as the preeminent power in the Indo-Pacific. Giving China what it wants now helps it achieve its goals. If Pelosi can’t visit Taiwan, then surely other U.S. officials will think twice before traveling there. And if Beijing calls the shots for Washington, D.C., why should other regional governments take us seriously?

The Washington Post editorial board is wrong to suggest that Pelosi postpone her visit until “the optimal moment.” There is no optimal moment. There are only moments when we decide to act and take responsibility. Does the Post believe that China would be any less angry at a Pelosi visit six months or a year from now? “Given the temptation for Mr. Xi to divert attention and bolster his own political standing by targeting Taiwan and the United States,” the editors write, “it’s smart not to give him any excuses.” Reading those words, I hear an echo of Barack Obama. As if Xi Jinping needs an excuse to further his evil designs. As if America and Pelosi are the problem, and not the despotic, expansionist, belligerent government in Beijing.

“Those who play with fire will perish by it,” Xi told Biden on Thursday, according to the Chinese Foreign Ministry. It’s a line Xi has used before. But who is playing with fire here? Pelosi, by following a precedent set by Newt Gingrich a quarter century ago? Or China, by trying to steamroll the speaker of the House? U.S. foreign policy works best when America acts boldly to create facts on the ground favorable to freedom. Which is why I am about to commit to print words I never thought I’d write: Go, Nancy, go!


The West’s Most Treacherous Poison-Tyrant

By Dr. Miklos K. Radv

Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

The Hungarian joke about the light bulb goes like this:  How many Hungarians does it take to change a light bulb?  The answer:  Two.  One to hold the eel, the other to screw in the hovercraft.  

This simple joke illustrates the psycho-pathology of most Hungarians.  The inability to spot reality and to adapt to the frequent changes in their place and role in history have been ingrained for many centuries in the national mentality of permanent victimhood.  Hungarian enthusiasm for this perceived historical injustice has resulted in catastrophic blindness to the power of skewed ideas that gradually have given rise to deep inferiority complexes.  Even more destructively, the dual curse of victimhood and inferiority complexes have created a dearth of empathy within the Hungarian communities and also toward the non-Hungarian entities throughout Central and Eastern Europe.  Finally, the intersection between victimhood and lack of empathy, has guided the Hungarian national mentality into a vacuum, in which Hungarians have been told that they would remain exceptional if they stay away from mixing with other non-Hungarian peoples. 

Having been seen as being irredeemably victimized, the average Hungarian has viewed all the problems as factors that exist outside of his or her control.  Consequently, facing individual or collective challenges, Hungarians have tended to blame others for their difficulties, instead of taking matters into their own hands to find solutions.  Thus, the importance of the individual with his or her free agency has diminished and the blame-others-game has prompted them to nurture pseudo-real grievances that, in turn, have given birth to unhealthy personal developments within the entire Hungarian political, social and moral cultures.

When liberation came in 1990 from the four-and-a-half-decade of Soviet military occupation, the Hungarian people were unprepared for national independence and democracy.  For the overwhelming majority of Hungarians, getting rid of the Soviet Red Army has meant the alluring possibility of an American lifestyle, in which suddenly everybody would own a big house and would have separate cars for every family member parking in the driveway.  When these dreams have failed to come to fruition with alacrity, nostalgia for the predictable days of the former Communist dictatorship has emerged in a very powerful manner.  The only person who understood his countrymen’s inability to change course was Viktor Orban, a young Communist, immature, yet with a sufficiently aggressive infatuation for power and money.  His message since 1998, when he first became prime minister, has been a simple one:  Hungary does not need Westernization.  On the contrary, Hungarians should not integrate into the Free World.  Real Hungarians should revive the past and use it as a foundation for uniting all Hungarians inside and outside today’s Hungary.  Under the banner of his self-proclaimed “Illiberalism,” Hungary has become in the last twelve years a non-assimilating, non-integrating and self-segregating member state of the European Union and NATO.

With his fraudulently manufactured two-third majority in the Parliament, he has centralized politics, economy, education and information by cutting everything into miniscule and confusing pieces, leading to humungous lies, unimaginable degrees of corruption as well as fraudulent identity between the inglorious past and the miserable present devoid of a realistic plan for a livable future.  In this manner, Viktor Orban has transformed Hungary into a hopeless and unredeemable country in the middle of the European continent.

In his most recent public appearance in the annual Balvanyos Summer Free University and Student Camping Festival in Tusnadfurdo (Romanian:  Baile Tusnad), in Romania, Viktor Orban delivered a speech, in which he claimed that the world has become increasingly polarized within Europe and beyond.  Criticizing everybody, including the United States of America as well as the European Union, but hypocritically defending the Russian Federation’s illegitimate and terroristic invasion of Ukraine as understandable from the Kremlin’s perspective, he stated that only Hungary wants real peace, while the West in general is guided by greedy and sinister self-interests to continue supporting Ukraine which cannot win against the mighty Russian military.  To add insult to his fallacious description of the Russia-Ukraine war and its consequences, he predicted, in the manner of Putin and Lavrov, that the “declining West” would diminish with its values by 2030 and the world will witness a new world order.  Having continued in the same vein for an extended period of time, he declared that those who do not agree with him are on the wrong side of history and will be thrown away by the newly emerging world.  Then, turning more devilish in his analysis, he launched into a racist tirade that cunningly resembled the language of the 1930s and 1940s in Germany as well as in Hungary.  Pleading for the purity of the Hungarian race, which has been the code word of Jew hatred and the subsequent extermination of six million European Jews by the Germans and their allies in Central and Eastern Europe, he intoned stentoriously that his government will never agree to the mixing of the races that has become accepted in the Western part of the continent.        

In Viktor Orban’s La La Land, Hungary has only rights but no obligations.  In the same speech, he expounded on the debt the world owes Hungary.  He assured his listeners that Hungary will demand to be paid in full for all the services that allegedly he and his government provided for the Free World.  Meanwhile, Hungary is on the edge of economic and financial bankruptcy.  Clearly, he must be stopped and reminded of the wise dictum of the late President Ronald Reagan:  “We don’t have a trillion dollar debt because we haven’t taxed enough; we have a trillion dollar debt because we spend too much.” 


The Washington – Moscow – Beijing Triangle

By Dr. Miklos K. RadvanyiFrontiers of Freedom

The enduring illegal and terroristic invasion of the sovereign state of Ukraine by the Russian Federation since 2014 and the People’s Republic of China’s equally illegal and terroristic expansion in Asia and elsewhere have given the lie to most Western intellectuals’ claim that if both would accept even a rudimentary form of capitalism they would also surely become more democratic.  In reality, despite the halting westernization attempts undertaken by Gorbachov, Yeltsin as well as Putin and successive Chinese leaders since the death of Mao Zedong, both states are still radically incompatible in their political inculture, mentality, customs and institutions from the West in general and the United States of America in particular.  To wit, they also remain separated from the Free World by NATO, the European Union as well as multiple unfriendly alliances in Asia, Africa and South America.

As a result, up to now, both states have taken only a secondary role in world affairs.  Hence Presidents Putin’s and Xi’s coordinated call for a new world order, in which presumably their states would play the leading role.  Taking advantage of the many institutional weaknesses of the European Union caused by the poorly thought out expansion in the new decade of the twenty first century, the Russian Federation has started to seize territories of the former Soviet Union in the eastern part of the continent.  Corresponding to this dangerous situation, the present tyrant in the Kremlin is a born chauvinistic megalomaniac with a mentally sick temperament.

In Asia, President Xi Jinping is infused with dictatorial powers, but at the same time, has been hamstrung by a host of Confucian traditions and rivalizing local cum state interests as well as opinions, which he can only ignore at his peril.  In this context, he is bound to take into account the wishes of the party and military bureaucracies, the thoughts of the local potentats as well as the guardians of the spirit of the 1949 coup d’etat.  To appease all these divergent interests, he has embarked on an aggressive maritime expansion, including the threat of global invasion to the Republic of China.  To show off his tyrannical side, he has been fighting the bureaucracies by ruthlessly clamping down on his country’s lethal corruption.  Thus, his reign since 2013 has been characterized by a confusing cavalcade of internal and foreign contradictions.  To summarize President Putin’s and President Xi’s political conditions, they are collectively compromised by their powers stained with the blood of the joint tyrannical past, their domestic as well as foreign political and military strategic shenanigans and tactical intrigues.  These contradictory attributes – the uncompromising tyrant and the duplicitous coward – have never been separated throughout their bloody reigns.

Meanwhile, in the United States of America, single issue minority movements have been laboring aggressively on enforcement of false realities.  Under the banner of “Political Correctness” cum “Multiculturalism”, allegedly fighting against “White Supremacy”, “Exploitative Capitalism” and “Evil Democracy”, they have brought pervasive hatred and senseless violence across the nation.  Their idiotic pseudo-intellectual sociopolitical garbage have merely generated untold catastrophes and individual tragedies inside and outside the Union.  Moreover, their inability to comprehend realities has been heightened by the failed ideologies of Marx, Stalin as well as Mao.  In this manner, they all have divorced themselves from common sense and have become sheep-like slaves of a nonexistent should be future with a victim mentality.  The election in 2020 of a president in the advanced stages of hopeless dementia, has only exacerbated their friend versus foe psychopathologies.  Finally, the social media’s immoral manipulations of good versus evil phenomena have resulted in a sickening distortion of innocent versus guilt notions, in which these minority movements hunt for everybody who questions the absolute truthfulness of their inferiority complex driven unrealities.  Unless it stopped decisively, this extremely dangerous fake herd ideology could destroy Western civilization with its absolute hostility to the core principles of individual liberty and burgeoning prosperity.  Coupled with the Democrat Party’s “Open Borders” lawlessness, in which the overwhelming majority of illegal immigrants reject assimilation because of their loyalty to their native culture, lack of views on free speech as well as tolerance for other persons’ opinions, they too contribute mightily to the growth of the fallacious myth of victimhood.  In this tragic society of misguided illusions, normalcy is thrown out of the window and exiled to the massive garbage heap of the real world.  More importantly, since a prohibitively large percentage of those semi-educated people tend to work in the federal cum state bureaucracies, in education and the media, their unmitigated lust for power and money will assure the maintenance of a well-nourished vicious circle of abominable hatred and manipulative lies. Clearly, the world resembles a rudderless ship without a competent captain.  Similarly to Plato’s Ship of State metaphor, today’s political leaders across the globe are like the ship-owner who knows nothing about directing a sailboat.  Underneath him, his underlings are equally uneducated about the profession of navigation.  Yet, they prevent the skilled navigators from taking command of the sailboat.  Appallingly, the world’s only superpower has been missing from the global stage since the end of the Reagan presidency.  Because of that, the world has become an extremely dangerous theater of political rivalries by incompetent but power hungry so-called politicians.  Meanwhile, Russia and China have become the epicenters of complex aggressions where all the elements of state terrorism are present.  Europe has become a tangled mess.  Asia is gearing up for multiple confrontations among its great powers.  The Greater Middle East will remain snarled in tribal, religious and political rivalries.  Africa seemingly cannot escape from its indigenous as well as colonial miseries.  The states of Central and South America are stock in the twisted threads of their history and the peoples’ desire for a better life.  No doubt that the world cries out for leadership.  Restoring America’s greatness must be an urgent priority.  To accomplish that, the people need to wise up and elect competent leaders who could act decisively to restore sanity to public life throughout the Union and beyond.       


Why Should We Believe Biden?

The president's credibility is shot

By Matthew ContinettiThe Washington Free Beacon

Before leaving for the Middle East, President Biden sat down for an interview with Israel’s Channel 12 News. Anchor Yonit Levi asked the president if he would use force to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. “As a last resort, yes,” Biden said.

I’d like to think that Biden is sincere. I hope that he understands the dangers a nuclear Iran would pose to the Greater Middle East, to Europe, and indeed to the world. A nuclear Iran would launch a cycle of proliferation and escalation in the region. Iran’s nuclear missiles would be in range not only of America’s Persian Gulf allies but also of NATO. Iran would intensify its malign activities, from terrorism to proxy war to hostage-taking, knowing that the bomb gives it cover. A nuclear Iran means a world more dangerous, more violent, more flammable than the world is even today.

Which is why Biden is the latest American president to suggest that the use of force remains an option. An air and naval campaign to destroy the nuclear sites known to Western intelligence and to degrade the Islamic Republic’s capacity to retaliate is the best means of delaying and potentially foreclosing the possibility of an Iranian bomb. The objective of such an operation wouldn’t be regime change. The goal would be prevention. Israel and the Gulf States would support us. And Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping would pay attention. They would be put on notice: The American president means what he says.

Does he? In the spring of 2021, President Biden was asked about the record numbers of illegal immigrants who began crossing the southern border after he reversed his predecessor’s asylum policies. Biden dismissed the question. The migrant surge was “seasonal,” he said. It happens “every single solitary year.” Not like this, it doesn’t. The season ended long ago. The migration has continued for a year and a half. Last month saw the largest number of illegal crossings on record. Biden’s flippant answer was grossly mistaken, to say the least. He doesn’t seem to care. In fact, if he’s successful in ending Title 42 protocols allowing for the swift repatriation of illegal migrants, he will continue to make the problem worse.

In the summer of 2021, President Biden gave a speech on the inflation that was starting to appear in the economic data. “Our experts believe and the data shows that most of the price increases we’ve seen are—were expected and expected to be temporary,” he said. Like the “seasonal” migration on the southern border, the “temporary” inflation continues. Last month’s number was higher than expectations. Real earnings fell 4 percent. The president’s economic policies have resulted in a decline in Americans’ standard of living. Nothing he says on the issue has changed the public’s dismal view of his job performance.

It was only a year ago, remember, that President Biden was asked if a Taliban conquest of Afghanistan was inevitable. “No,” he answered. A month later, the holy warriors rolled into Kabul and America was forced into a panicked and dangerous rescue operation that left 13 U.S. servicemen killed and Afghanistan abandoned. Throughout this disaster, Biden spoke and acted as if everything was going according to plan, as if everything was under control. By Labor Day 2021, the public had severed its connection with a president whom it had placed in office simply because it was tired of the incumbent’s excesses. Biden might as well spend the rest of this year in Rehoboth Beach. He operates without public attention and without public support. His words carry no meaning. They don’t land, they don’t register, they don’t signify.

Will Biden use force to stop Iran? Maybe. That’s what he told Channel 12. Yet Biden acknowledged the possibility of a military strike only when Israeli media forced him to. Note the following: In his Washington Post op-ed explaining the reasons for his Middle East trip, Biden wrote that “my administration will continue to increase diplomatic and economic pressure until Iran is ready to return to compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, as I remain prepared to do.” No discussion of how long he will wait for Iran to get “ready to return” to the deal. No mention of what he will do if Iran refuses to comply.

And Iran isn’t complying. Indirect talks between the United States and Iran, mediated by Europe and by, incredibly, Russia, have lasted for over a year. They’ve gone nowhere. Worse than nowhere: Iran’s nuclear “breakout” time is now zero. Last month Iran turned off the cameras that the International Atomic Energy Agency uses to monitor its disclosed nuclear facilities. The cameras remain dark. The Iran crisis is here, but President Biden acts as if it hasn’t yet arrived. The zombie negotiations in Vienna—with endless talks despite longstanding impasses over the status of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and whether Biden’s successor will have the power to scuttle the arrangement (which of course he will)—have become an end in themselves. Nor is there reason to expect the administration to cut them off so long as Iran doesn’t make too much trouble. Especially when Biden would like to bring Iranian oil back on the market.

So much of Biden’s rhetoric feels performative: He recycles the standard lines not to state policy or rally public opinion but simply to move on to the next question. Where he is most sincere, it seems to me, is his reluctance to deploy our forces abroad. Think of his Afghanistan withdrawal, and his self-deterrence vis-à-vis Russia in Ukraine. “I will be the first president to visit the Middle East since 9/11 without U.S. troops engaged in a combat mission there,” he said in the final line of his Washington Post op-ed. “It’s my aim to keep it that way.”

That’s the real Biden—the Biden who believes that he’s been right on every foreign policy issue of the last half century, when he almost always has been wrong—the Biden whose credibility is shot. Should Israel and America’s Middle East partners take him seriously? Look at his actions rather than his words. And if he fails to act, others should.


NATO Now Facing China and Russia – Can it Fight Both at Same Time?

By Paul CrespoAmerican Action News

Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, 26 July 2018 via Wikimedia Commons.

ANALYSIS – I have argued that one of the most significant collateral benefits of Vladimir Putin’s brutal invasion of Ukraine has been to unify and strengthen NATO, not only against Russia but also against Putin’s greatest ally, Communist China, led by Xi Jinping.

While individual NATO countries were taking an increasingly complex line against China since President Donald Trump put confronting China front and center in U.S. strategy, Putin’s war (and China’s open support for Russia) pushed NATO to officially place China in its latest’ Strategic Concept’ planning paper.

This is a significant development. The U.S. can’t face China alone.

It also highlights the direct link more Europeans see between Russia’s assault on Ukraine and a similar Chinese invasion of Taiwan.

In its China Watcher newsletter, Politico, explains what this means and asks whether NATO can face off both threats simultaneously. It writes:

Congratulations to President XI JINPING. It’s official. China made it into NATO’s first revamped Strategic Concept in over a decade, formally adopted at last week’s Madrid summit.

NATO pointed to the “systemic challenges” that the People’s Republic of China poses while also holding out an olive branch for “constructive engagement.” Yet the language was tough, referring to Beijing’s “coercive policies” that challenge NATO’s “interests, security and values” as well as the PRC’s “malicious hybrid and cyber operations.”

In the bigger strategic picture, however, it is NATO’s depiction of Beijing and Moscow’s ever closer partnership that raises the largest concerns. NATO is not yet referring to a China-Russia “bloc” in its Strategic Concept, but it is clearly alerting the world’s democracies to the scale of the challenge they now face.

Enter the word “capacity.” Do the U.S. and its allies — especially in Europe — really have the resources and the willpower to hold the line if they are taking on Russia and China at once? The West is now locked in a confrontation over Ukraine that, absent regime change in Moscow, is likely to continue for year after dreary year without a clean and decisive conclusion.

Robin Shepard adds:

NATO firmly rejects the suggestion that China and Russia together are too much to handle. SpokespersonOana Lungescutold China Watcher: “Both authoritarian regimes are pushing back against the international rules-based order, so we are strengthening NATO in an era of strategic competition and deepening our partnerships with like-minded nations around the world, including our Indo-Pacific partners.… NATO does not have the luxury of choosing our challenges, we must face them all.”

The inclusion of China on NATO’s Strategic Concept has rattled the Communists in Beijing, especially as it follows the first NATO summit in June that included Japan, South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand.

China’s mouthpiece, the Global Times, railed at this Aisa-focused summit, saying: “Catering to NATO’s Asia-Pacificization is tantamount to inviting wolves into the house.… The sewage of the Cold War cannot be allowed to flow into the Pacific Ocean.”

This is all welcome news for the West, but it will take a lot more than just talk and papers.

NATO will have to do much more to rebuild its military capabilities if it genuinely intends to back the U.S. and its Asian allies in facing the Chinese Red Dragon.


Lawmakers Want To Know Why Biden Made It Easier for Terrorists To Enter the US

Congressional Republicans on Friday launched a formal probe into the Biden administration over its decision to alter federal law so that individuals tied to terrorist organizations can more easily enter the United States.

By Adam KredoThe Washington Free Beacon

The investigation, led by House Armed Services Committee member Jim Banks (R., Ind.), comes on the heels of a Washington Free Beacon report last month that detailed how the administration amended federal immigration law to permit foreigners who provided “insufficient material support” to designated terrorist organizations to receive “immigration benefits or other status” inside America.

The State Department said the law was altered to make it easier for vulnerable Afghans who might have worked with terror groups to find refuge in America, but current and former U.S. officials who spoke to the Free Beacon said the rule is so broadly written that it could also apply to those who worked with al Qaeda or Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), the country’s paramilitary fighting force that has killed hundreds of Americans.

“These loose and overly broad definitions will open the floodgates for supporters of terrorism to enter the United States,” Banks and three Republican colleagues wrote in a letter to the White House that was obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon. “Such a general waiver, if implemented, would create additional difficulty in immigration vetting process, have catastrophic consequences on border security and put American families at increased risk from terrorism.”

The lawmakers—Banks and Reps. Claudia Tenney (R., N.Y.), Greg Steube (R., Fla.), and Rob Wittman (R., Va.)—want the administration to provide Congress with information about whether this rule change was implemented as a concession to Iran meant to entice the country into inking a revamped version of the 2015 nuclear accord.

“This order was also released just weeks before negotiations with Iran over restoring the nuclear deal recommenced,” they write. “Your administration may be trying to entice Iran back to the nuclear deal by using broad executive authorities to weaken the penalties connected to the [foreign terrorist organization] designation without requiring the IRGC and other Iran-supported terrorist organizations to verifiably cease their terrorist activities.”

The State Department, which along with the Department of Homeland Security authored the rule change, said the changes are part of “an effort to address issues related to Afghanistan. The circumstances between Afghanistan and Iran are very different.”

The rule does not specifically mention Afghanistan, however, and appears to cover all U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organizations, such as the IRGC and al Qaeda, according to lawmakers and former senior U.S. officials who reviewed the order and spoke to the Free Beacon. The Taliban is not designated as a foreign terrorist organization, adding more confusion.

Examples of individuals who would fall into the new category include those who provided “humanitarian assistance” or “routine commercial transactions” to designated terror groups, according to a copy of the rule published in the Federal Register.

“Exercising broad executive authorities to weaken the legal force of [foreign terrorist organization] designations is bound to increase risks to U.S. national security,” the lawmakers say.

The lawmakers asked the administration to explain by July 22 why it altered immigration laws.

They want to know how the administration justifies these changes and how it could possibly support “the national interest to allow any supporters of terrorism into the United States.”

They also want to know how many individuals have qualified for immigration benefits under the rule change and how many could qualify each year. This includes details about how many of these terror-tied individuals are from Afghanistan and Iran.

“If, as the State Department spokesperson commented, this order is intended to benefit Afghan Special Immigration Visa applicants and holders, why is this group not explicitly mentioned?” the lawmakers ask.

“Does your administration intend to issue any immigration related waivers for IRGC and its affiliates? If, as State Department spokesperson commented, this order is not intended to benefit the IRGC and its affiliates, why are IRGC and its affiliates not explicitly excluded from this order?”


Putin’s Threats of Nuclear War Require Us to Increase our Defenses

By George LandrithTownhall

Putin’s Threats of Nuclear War Require Us to Increase our Defenses

Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine has proven that Putin seeks to rebuild the former Soviet empire by force and if he must kill tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people to accomplish his goal, he is willing to do it. What is happening in Ukraine is jarring and we should learn the lessons that it is teaching. Putin thought he would cruise to victory in Ukraine in a matter of days. But his efforts bogged down in part because his conventional fighting forces are weaker than most would have predicted, and the Ukrainian people’s willingness to fight for their country was greater than most would have anticipated.

However, once Putin’s military stalled and not so veiled nuclear threats began to leak out of the Kremlin, it allowed the rest of the world the time and opportunity to not only condemn Russia, but to provide much needed aid to the Ukrainian people.

Putin showed us that it is a mistake to assume that because our conventional military forces are the world’s strongest, that we don’t need to worry about nuclear threats. To most Americans the idea of unleashing nuclear weapons seems incomprehensible. But if you are thoroughly evil, and have grandiose ambitions, and your conventional military cannot defeat the west, you only have one card to play — a nuclear one. Russian military doctrine actually states that it can win a nuclear war, so our defenses against nuclear threats must be every bit as robust as our conventional military forces. 

Russia doesn’t have as robust of a surface navy as it once had when it was the Soviet Union. But it continues to maintain a highly capable submarine fleetthat is part of Russia’s nuclear threat.

It should not come as a surprise that a nation who has learned it cannot compete militarily on a conventional basis, will rely more heavily on its nuclear capability. It is no coincidence that for the past decade or two, Russia has invested heavily in nuclear assets. They have invested heavily in hypersonic missiles as a delivery mechanism, and have also been busy developing tactical nuclear weapons while we havebeen essentially decommissioning ours. Allowing Russia — with a leader like Putin — to have the upper hand in a nuclear conflict is a catastrophically bad strategy. As we’ve seen in Ukraine, trusting in the goodwill and decency of a man like Putin is complete folly. 

We must therefore be prepared to neutralize the Russian nuclear threat. Missile defense is obviously an important component of that. But perhaps an unknown or under-appreciated part of our defensive capability is the P-8 Poseidon. It is the world’s most capable sub-hunting aircraft. It has ultra sensitive radar, special cameras, sonar buoys for finding and tracking submarines, and the capability to destroy threatening submarines. 

But that’s not all. The P-8 Poseidon is a highly versatile, multi-mission aircraft. It is an effective reconnaissance plane, and it can engage and destroy surface ships, and do search and rescue missions. In so many different missions, the P-8 is truly state of the art.

The P-8 has been a highly successful program, as a modified and tailored 737, it has been designed and built from the ground up to perform its vital functions. It has been delivered on time, within cost perimeters, and it does everything that it was designed to do while performing above expectations.

But the problem is we don’t have enough of them to counteract the threats we face. And it isn’t just Putin. China has become increasingly belligerent and has been building a navy larger than our own. Their stated goal is to replace the US as the world’s most powerful nation. China’s communist leaders don’t seek stability, they seek domination. 

During the height of the Cold War, we had far more sub-hunter aircraft than we do now, yet the risk is much greater today. In 1975, we were not worried about China. Today, we have every reason to be worried about both Russian and China. 

A number of our allies also see the P-8 as the future of sub-hunting. But we don’t yet even have a full compliment of the numbers our war fighting experts said we needed several years ago — and that was when we saw Russia as a far less dangerous threat. So the truth is, we need a lot more P-8 Poseidons than we currently have. And we need them yesterday. 

There is tremendous urgency to ramp up our ability to neutralize the nuclear threats that Russia and China pose. While the P-8 isn’t the only thing we need, it is a very good place to start.  And we have no time to waste. As we have learned, our adversaries are watching and when they determined that we are not prepared or strong, they will jump at the opportunity to expand their dominance and control. So let’s hope Congress and the Pentagon are paying attention and send a signal that America will always be ready and capable.  And they can do that by making sure we have plenty of P-8 Poseidons to counteract this growing nuclear threat.
