Boris Johnson’s Transformation From ‘Conservative’ Libertarian To Technocrat Tyrant

If COVID lockdowns were not bad enough, Chinese-style social credit scoring is establishing itself in Britain as Boris Johnson seeks to control food consumption and exercise regimens. Technocrats in Britain have totally betrayed the Brexit movement by imposing an even worse dictatorship on their own people than the EU could have ever done. ⁃ TN Editor

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to launch a communist China-style social credit score app that will reward families based on government-approved choices at the grocery store.

The supposedly Conservative government will launch an app by the end of the year to monitor the supermarket spending habits of families in the UK. Those who choose “healthier” options such as fruits and vegetables or engage in exercise will be rewarded with “loyalty points” in the app, which will translate into discounts and other incentives.

“There is a whole team in Downing Street working on this, and the Prime Minister thinks that we simply cannot go on as before and that we must now tackle it head-on,” a White Hall source told The Telegraph.

“He has been on a very rigorous diet and exercise programme and it is likely he will play a leading role in fronting this whole campaign.”

The outgoing head of the NHS, Lord Stevens said that the UK’s socialised healthcare system will be weighed down in the future if the government failed to tackle the rising obesity in the country.

“The layers of the onion… stretch out to things that are obviously beyond a healthcare system’s direct control, including the obesogenic food environment that children and poorer communities are exposed to.

“Countries, where more than half the population are overweight, have had 10 times more Covid death,” Lord Stevens noted.

Some have criticised the nanny state mentality of the government, likening the programme to the social credit score in China, which tracks the habits of citizens, awarding positive points for buying things like diapers and subtractions for buying alcohol. The communist scheme has also seen tens of millions of citizens barred from travelling because their score was too low.

Political commentator Calvin Robinson wrote in response to the idea of tracking supermarket spending: “The party of small state and privacy has become the party of nanny state interventionism. For shame.

“The Conservative Party needs new leadership.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who blamed his weight for his difficulties when he contracted the Chinese coronavirus last year, has radically shifted his position on government intrusions into personal matters since then.

As a candidate for the Tory Party leadership two years ago, Johnson pledged a review of “sin stealth taxes” and promised to end the “continuing creep of the nanny state”.

“It’s time to take a proper look at the continuing creep of the nanny state and the impact it has on hardworking families across Britain.

“The recent proposal for a tax on milkshakes seems to me to clobber those who can least afford it.

“If we want people to lose weight and live healthier lifestyles, we should encourage people to walk, cycle and generally do more exercise. Rather than just taxing people more, we should look at how effective the so-called ‘sin taxes’ really are, and if they actually change behaviour,” Mr Johnson had said.

Senate Republican Leader: Get Vaxxed Or Face Lockdown

McConnell says he is a huge fan of vaccinations and naively thought every American would rush to get one in the current pandemic environment. Now he brings teeth to the table: Get vaxxed or get locked down. This is the moral equivalent of extortion. ⁃ TN Editor

A fresh wave of deaths and hospitalizations like the ones that crippled the country last year loom on the horizon if people don’t wise up and get vaccinated against COVID-19, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell warned.

“These shots need to get in everybody’s arms as rapidly as possible or we´re going to be back in a situation in the fall that we don’t yearn for — that we went through last year,” McConnell (R-Ky.) said at a news conference Tuesday, adding, “This is not complicated.”

Asked about comments from Utah Gov. Spencer Cox alleging that conservative pundits are killing people with their rhetoric, McConnell stated that he encourages everybody to “ignore all of these other voices that are giving demonstrably bad advice.”

McConnell’s call to seek trusted and verified information about the virus and vaccines mirrors White House efforts this past week to counter false information that they say is spreading on social media and cable news.

McConnell took to Twitter to promote his pro-vaccination remarks, tweeting a portion of them with the words “Get Vaccinated!” at the top of the tweet.

A new Axios Ipsos poll highlights the difficulties that government officials have had in convincing a significant segment of the American population to take the jab: Of the unvaccinated respondents to that poll, fully half said they are “not at all likely” to take it.

The minority leader’s statements come at a time when the Delta variant has led to a spike in COVID cases across the country, although without a corresponding increase in hospitalizations and deaths.

Melbourne In Chaos As Protestors Resist New COVID Lockdowns

⁃ TN Editor [/su_note] Australia is about to go into full lockdown again which will paralyze the economy, drive more small businesses out of existence. Citizens are completely fed up with their authoritarian government, are demanding change and that their Premier Daniel Andrews resign immediately. ⁃ TN Editor [/su_note]

Hundreds of protestors have stormed Melbourne‘s CBD to rally against the looming five-day lockdown coming into force across Victoria from midnight.

Premier Daniel Andrews on Thursday said Victoria had ‘no choice’ but to enter a snap statewide lockdown to contain a growing outbreak of the COVID-19 Delta variant.

The decision came after the state recorded two new cases, bringing its cluster to 18, which was sparked when NSW‘s outbreak was imported into Melbourne by a Sydney removalist working interstate.

But hundreds of angry residents did not agree with the premier, demanding he be sacked for plunging the state into its fifth lockdown since the pandemic began in March 2020.

Despite the wet weather, Victorians poured into Flinders Street holding up signs calling for freedom, with some reading ‘lockdown kills’ and ‘I have a choice’.

Organisers leading the procession held a huge blue banner with the name of an anti-lockdown website scrawled across it, as they roused fellow protestors through a megaphone.

The lockdown objectors chanted as they marched through the streets, just hours before stay-at-home orders will be rolled out across the state.

Face masks were noticeably absent among the crowd, only visible on the police officers standing guard to monitor the demonstration.

This is despite face masks being mandatory indoors and outdoors when unable to socially distance since 11.59pm on Wednesday.

Some signs appeared to espouse anti-vax sentiments while others suggested the pandemic was not real, with slogans such as ‘government lies’ and ‘a real pandemic needs no advertisement’.

The demonstrators, who have titled their community the Melbourne Freedom Rally, have five main objectives they are striving to achieve through their protest, according to their website.

They include an end to Covid restrictions, an investigation into the handling of the coronavirus response, Mr Andrews’ resignation, no vaccine mandates, and full refunds for those who have been fined for breaching coronavirus-related directives.

Instead of restrictions, they recommend the state adopt Sweden’s controversial Covid strategy, where the virus was allowed to run rampant within the community without lockdowns, with ‘voluntary protective measures’ for those who are vulnerable.

They are also seeking a ‘Pandemic Royal Commission’ to ‘find any evidence of criminal activity, conflicts of interest, corruption, and incompetence in the government and medical system’ and have all doctors who ‘knowingly falsified death certificates’ to wrongly include Covid charged with fraud.

‘Daniel Andrews must resign as the Premier of Victoria, and nominate a successor that will enact all other demands,’ the website reads.

‘[He] must be held accountable for the Crimes against Humanity he has committed upon the Victorian People.’

Technocracy’s Authoritarianism Advances As World Battles Pandemic

The race toward global authoritarianism is a manifestation of advances of Technocracy and especially with the pandemic. Democracy is “fragile” because Technocrats are killing it with a thousand cuts. ⁃ TN Editor

Here’s some of what happened while the world was distracted by the coronavirus: Hungary banned the public depiction of homosexuality. China shut Hong Kong’s last pro-democracy newspaper. Brazil’s government extolled dictatorship. And Belarus hijacked a passenger plane to arrest a journalist.

COVID-19 has absorbed the world’s energies and isolated countries from one another, which may have accelerated the creep of authoritarianism and extremism across the globe, some researchers and activists believe.

“COVID is a dictator’s dream opportunity,” said Theary Seng, a Cambodian-American human rights lawyer who has been indicted on charges including treason in the ostensibly democratic southeast Asian nation, where Prime Minister Hun Sen has been in power for more than three decades.

Human Rights Watch accuses Cambodia’s government of using the pandemic as cover to imprison political opponents without due process. Scores have been indicted and face mass trials.

When it comes to government opposition, “the fear of COVID, on its own and as a political weapon, has substantially restricted mobility for a gathering or movement to take shape,” Seng said.

The biggest global public health emergency in a century has handed power to government authorities and restricted life for billions of people.

Luke Cooper, a London School of Economics researcher and author of the book “Authoritarian Contagion,” said the vast economic, health and social resources poured into fighting the pandemic mean “the state is back as a force to manage society and to deliver public goods.”

Restrictions on civil liberties or political opponents have been stepped up during the pandemic on several continents.

For a decade in Hungary, conservative nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban has curtailed media and judicial freedom, criticized multiculturalism and attacked Muslim migrants as a threat to Europe’s Christian identity.

During the pandemic, Orban’s government brought in an emergency powers bill allowing it to implement resolutions without parliamentary approval — effectively a license to rule by decree. In June, it passed a law prohibiting the sharing of content portraying homosexuality or sex reassignment with anyone under 18. The government claims the purpose is to protect children from pedophiles, but it effectively outlawed discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in schools and the media.

Poland’s conservative government has chipped away at the rights of women and gay people. A ruling last year by a government-controlled court that imposed a near-total ban on abortion triggered a wave of protests that defied a ban on mass gatherings during the virus outbreak.

In India, the world’s biggest democracy, populist Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been accused of trying to silence voices critical of his administration’s response to a brutal pandemic wave that tore through the country in April and May. His government has arrested journalists and ordered Twitter to remove posts that criticized its handling of the outbreak after introducing sweeping regulations that give it more power to police online content.

Even before the pandemic, Modi’s ruling Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party was accused by opponents of squashing dissent and introducing policies aimed at refashioning a multifaith democracy into a Hindu nation that discriminates against Muslims and other minorities.

In Russia, the government of President Vladimir Putin has used the pandemic as its latest excuse to arrest opposition figures. Associates of jailed opposition figure Alexei Navalny have been subjected to house arrest and charges that the mass protests against his arrest violated regulations on mass gatherings.

In neighboring Belarus, authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko extended his quarter-century iron grip on power by winning an August 2020 election that the opposition — and many Western countries — said was rigged. The huge protests that erupted were met with tear gas, rubber bullets and mass arrests.

Then, in May, a Ryanair plane flying from Athens to Vilnius was forced to land in the Belarusian capital of Minsk after the crew was told of an alleged threat. Opposition journalist Raman Pratasevic, a passenger, was taken off the plane along with his girlfriend and arrested.

Western nations called the forced diversion a brazen hijacking and slapped sanctions on Belarus, but those seem unlikely to induce Lukashenko to change his ways and underscore the weakness of democracies in confronting hardline regimes. Hungary’s acts have drawn sharp words from fellow European Union leaders, but the 27-nation bloc has no unified response to restrictive regimes like those in Hungary or Poland.

Even before COVID-19 came along, extremism was on the march.

“Over the last 15 years, authoritarian politics has replicated all over the world,” Cooper said. “Democracy feels very fragile. Democracy doesn’t have a clear vision for what it’s trying to do in the 21st century.”

Pakistan Shuts Off Phone Service To Non-Vaccinated Citizens

The Technocrat hand of tyrannical government is coming down on the “un-vaxxed” all around the world. Pakistan now has at least two programs in place; disabling sim cards in cellular phones for all citizens and refusing to pay government employees who refuse to take the vaccine. ⁃ TN Editor

The extreme decision was made during a meeting of high-ranking civil and military officials chaired by Punjab Health Minister Yasmin Rashid.

Rashid said that the policy would disable SIM cards belonging to those who fail to get vaccinated “beyond a certain time.”

“We are doing all we can to compel people to get vaccinated… The government cannot allow individuals, who do not want to get vaccinated, to risk lives of those who are already vaccinated,” the health minister told Pakistan’s Express Tribune. She said that the provincial government would devise a timeline for the policy’s implementation once it received formal approval from the National Command and Operation Center, which coordinates Pakistan’s national response to Covid-19.

Punjab’s Primary and Secondary Health Department announced the measure on Thursday in a tweet detailing the outcome of the meeting.

“Mobile SIMS of people not getting vaccinated may be blocked,” the department wrote.

Officials later signaled that the plan was moving forward.

“[A] final decision has been taken to block the mobile SIM cards of people not getting vaccinated,” Punjab Specialized Healthcare Department spokesman Syed Hammad Raza told Dawn, a Pakistani daily.

Citing a senior health department official, the paper said that the Punjab government will seek help from the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) in order to implement the policy.

The measure is designed to counter “negative propaganda” about the jab and ensure that vaccination targets are met, Dawn reported, citing the official. The provincial government is aiming to vaccinate 40 million residents by November.

In addition to the SIM card restrictions, authorities might also ban unvaccinated people from going to parks, restaurants and malls, according to media reports.

Punjab is the most populous province of Pakistan, containing more than half the country’s total population, as well as the country’s second-largest city, Lahore. The regional government began its vaccination drive in March, but has struggled to drum up enthusiasm for the public health initiative. Mobile vaccination camps are being deployed near religious shrines across the province in an effort to make the jab more accessible.

Governments around the world have adopted a range of measures to promote vaccination efforts, but some policies have been criticized as gimmicky or heavy-handed.

In the US state of Washington, legal marijuana retailers are giving free joints to those who’ve taken at least one dose of the Covid vaccine. Restrictions have also been used to compel people to get the shot. In some countries, such as Israel, unvaccinated citizens are barred from entering certain venues.

Punjab isn’t the only region in Pakistan to take a more extreme approach to vaccination. In Sindh province, plans have been announced to stop the salaries of government employees who refuse to receive the jab.

Santa Clara County: Businesses Must Submit Vaccination Status Of All Employees-Every two weeks!

In the heart of Silicon Valley, Santa Clara Country has gone totally 1984-dystopia by forcing business to report the vaccination status of every employee every two weeks. If an employee declines to answer, they are to be treated as unvaccinated and forced to wear a face mask. Criminal penalties are set for employer non-compliance. ⁃ TN Editor

Businesses in Santa Clara County, California are required to submit vaccination status of all employees.

According to the county’s public health order, “All businesses and government entities must ascertain the vaccination status of personnel and must comply with the rules for personnel who are not fully vaccinated, as required under section 9(c) and 9(d) of the County Health Officer’s May 18, 2021 Order.”

Under the health order, the employee can decline to provide their vaccination status to their employer.

If the employee declines to offer the information, the employer “should assume the employee may be unvaccinated and follow State and local requirements for unvaccinated employees.”

Order of the Health Officer of the County of Santa Clara – May 18, 2021

Ascertainment of Vaccination Status. Businesses and governmental entities must ascertain the vaccination status of all personnel.  Until a person’s vaccination status is ascertained, they must be treated as not fully vaccinated.  Personnel who decline to provide vaccination status must also be treated as unvaccinated.  Businesses and governmental entities must complete their initial ascertainment of vaccination status for all personnel within 14 days of the effective date of this Order.  Thereafter, they must obtain updated vaccination status for all personnel who were not fully vaccinated every 14 days.  Business and governmental entities must maintain appropriate records to demonstrate compliance with this provision.

Mandatory Rules for Personnel not Fully Vaccinated. Businesses and governmental entities must require all personnel who are not fully vaccinated to (1) comply with all applicable provisions of the Mandatory Directive on Use of Face Coverings, and (2) comply with all applicable provisions of the Health Officer’s Mandatory Directive on Unvaccinated Personnel.

Enforcement. Pursuant to Government Code sections 26602 and 41601, Health and Safety Code section 101029, and Santa Clara County Ordinance Code section A1-34 et seq., the Health Officer requests that the Sheriff, all chiefs of police in the County, and all enforcement officers ensure compliance with and enforce this Order.  The violation of any provision of this Order constitutes an imminent threat and menace to public health, constitutes a public nuisance, and is punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both.  This Order is also subject to the civil enforcement authority established by Urgency Ordinance No. NS-9.291.

In other words, if an employee refuses to get the vaccine or declines to disclose this private information to their employer, they will be treated like a second class citizen and will be forced to wear a face mask.

The employers are not required to provide the vaccine information to the County, but they are required to collect it and “have it available to demonstrate their compliance with this requirement” (struggle session).

The health order argues that HIPPA does not apply when an employer asks an employee for their vaccination status.

“No. HIPAA applies to certain entities, such as healthcare providers and health plans, and what protected health information they can share about their patients or members under what circumstances. HIPAA does not govern what information employers may request from their employees.” – the health order read.

Employees are told to document and snitch on fellow co-workers if they won’t tell fellow colleagues whether they are vaccinated – then treat them like dirty virus bags and stay away from them.

“You must document that the worker declined to disclose his or her vaccination status, assume that they are not fully vaccinated, and follow all the rules that apply to workers who are not fully vaccinated.” the order said.

Oregon Imposes Vaccine Passports, Demands Compliance

The Fascist state of Oregon has become the first state to mandate vaccination in order to be able to take your face mask off when entering businesses, churches, government buildings, etc. This is the resurrection of Jim Crow laws but based on a vaccine instead of skin color.

Essentially, you will be forced to wear a mask forever unless and until you can prove that you are vaccinated. ⁃ TN Editor

It has come to this. Oregon health officials have approved the rollout of vaccine passports, requiring houses of worship, employers, and businesses to check the vaccine records of adherents, employees, or customers in exchange for being able to take off their masks indoors.

That’s right: in order to gain freedom from masks indoors, Oregonians must show their papers to prove they’ve complied with state’s unique and oppressive plan to get more people vaccinated. Presumably, people unwilling to show their papers will be reported. Businesses and other entities under the new rules will be “investigated” if they’re found breaking the rules.

Liberal feminist Dr. Naomi Wolf was in Oregon the day the vaccine passports were imposed. She’s recently labeled vaccine passports tyrannical and called it straight-up discrimination.

https://twitter.com/naomirwolf/status/1395852900832739336?s=20

The Washington Examiner reports that the Oregon Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration (OSHA) and other state agencies will enforce all of the new guidance. OSHA spokesman Aaron Corvin explained that employers brushing off the diktat also would be investigated.

We expect employers to comply, whichever route they take – allowing the vaccination exemption or sticking with current requirements. We will take and investigate complaints alleging employers aren’t requiring face coverings for example or checking vaccination status.

No governmental entity requires vaccine passports. But this reflexive authoritarian response coincides with Oregon Democrats’ desire to be first in the race to total tyranny. The new rules were announced even though Oregon’s new COVID caseload dropped by more than half in the last week, so they seem an upside-down response to the facts on the ground.

The same day the passports were announced, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), with the blessing of Governor Kate Brown, also ordered that all people inside K-12 schools, jails, hospitals, and homeless shelters must wear masks, regardless of papers. 

This is considered “progress” for progressives. 

State Senate Republican leader Fred Girod told The Washington Examiner that the last time he checked, America was still a free country. 

Vaccine passports are completely contrary to Oregonians’ sense of privacy. This kind of dictatorial control over the everyday lives of Oregonians must stop. 

After marking a good swath of Oregonians with a big “u” for unvaccinated or unwilling to comply with the new passport program, the head of OHA, Dr. Dean Sidelinger, told The Oregonian that he hoped people won’t “cheat” by forging vaccination passports.

Arizona Election Fraud: Why Does Maricopa County Delete Databases, Not Turn Over Passwords, Refuse To Comply With Subpoenas?

Technocrats in Arizona’s Maricopa County are scattering like cockroaches when the lights are turned on. County officials are stonewalling legislative subpoenas, deleting entire election databases, refusing to turn over passwords and routers used during the election.

In the meantime, Dominion Voting Systems has also belligerently refused to give machine passwords to the Arizona audit team. This also explains why Maricopa County officials could not provide the passwords – they never had them! How ludicrous is it that Maricopa County would contract with Dominion Voting Systems in the first place without having administrative control over those machines?

This is maddening in-your-face corruption that demands immediate criminal prosecution. ⁃ TN Editor

The president of the Arizona State Senate asked the chairman of the Maricopa Board of Supervisors in a letter on Tuesday to address “three serious issues that have arisen in the course of the Senate’s ongoing audit of the returns of the November 3, 2020 general election in Maricopa County. “

Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann identified those three issues in her letter to Maricopa County Supervisors Board Chairman Jack Sellers as: (1) ongoing non-compliance with legislative subpoenas, (2) chain of custody and ballot organization anomalies, and (3) deleted data bases.

As Breitbart News reported on December 16:

Arizona Senate Republicans on Tuesday issued subpoenas to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for a scanned ballot audit and ‘full forensic audit of ballot tabulation equipment, the software for that equipment and the election management system used in the 2020 general election.’

The audit of Maricopa County’s November 2020 election results began on April 23 and may continue into the summer.

“The first issue concerns Maricopa County’s apparent intent to renege on its previous commitment to comply fully with the legislative subpoenas issued on January 13, 2021, which, as you know, Judge Thomason found were valid and enforceable,” Fann wrote in Tuesday’s letter, adding:

To date, attorneys for Maricopa County have refused to produce virtual images of routers used in connection with the general election, relying on a conclusory and unsupported assertion that providing the routers would somehow “endanger the lives of law enforcement officers, their operations, or the protected health information and personal data of Maricopa County’s citizens.”  . . .

Nevertheless, in an effort to resolve the dispute regarding production of the routers, we propose that agents of CyFIR, an experienced digital forensics firm and subcontractor of Cyber Ninjas, review virtual images of the relevant routers in Maricopa County facilities and in the presence of representatives of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

Fann then addressed the second issue, chain of custody and ballot organization anomolies:

As the audit has progressed, the Senate’s contractors have become aware of apparent omissions, inconsistencies, and anomalies relating to Maricopa County’s handling, organization, and storage of ballots.  We hope you can assist us in understanding these issues, including specifically the following:

    1. The County has not provided any chain-of-custody documentation for the ballots. Does such documentation exist, and if so, will it be produced?
    2. The bags in which the ballots were stored are not sealed, although the audit team has found at the bottom of many boxes cut seals of the type that would have sealed a ballot bag. Why were these seals placed at the bottom of the boxes?
    3. Batches within a box are frequently separated by only a divider without any indication of the corresponding batch numbers. In some cases, the batch dividers are missing altogether.  This lack of organization has significantly complicated and delayed the audit team’s ballot processing efforts.  What are the County’s procedures for sorting, organizing, and packaging ballot batches?
    4. Most of the ballot boxes were sealed merely with regular tape and not secured by any kind of tamper-evident seal. Is that the County’s customary practice for storing ballots?
    5. The audit team has encountered a significant number of instances in which there is a disparity between the actual number of ballots contained in a batch and the total denoted on the pink report slip accompanying the batch. In most of these instances, the total on the pink report slip is greater than the number of ballots in the batch, although there are a few instances in which the total is lower.  What are the reasons for these discrepancies?

Fann then addressed the issue of deleted data bases:

We have recently discovered that the entire “Database” directory from the D drive of the machine “EMSPrimary” has been deleted. This removes election related details that appear to have been covered by the subpoena.

In addition, the main database for the Election Management System (EMS) Software, “Results Tally and Reporting,” is not located anywhere on the EMSPrimary machine, even though all of the EMS Clients reference that machine as the location of the database. This suggests that the main database for all election related data for the November 2020 General Election has been removed.

Can you please advise as to why these folders were deleted, and whether there are any backups that may contain the deleted folders?

Fann closed by inviting Board Chair Sellers and appropriate Maricopa County employees to meet with her personally at a hearing room in the Arizona State Capital on Tuesday, May 18 to address these three serious issues.

‘Shadow President’: Former Trilateral Commission Member Susan Rice

Trilateral Commission hegemony started in 1973 and is still in control. If you haven’t read my book co-authored with the late Professor Antony Sutton, Trilaterals Over Washington, you should do so immediately. Then read Technocracy: The Hard Road to World Order. ⁃ TN Editor

Ric Grenell, who served as acting director of National Intelligence in the Trump administration, is blasting Susan Rice and says she is acting as a “shadow president.”

His comments came during an interview on CPAC Now. An excerpt of the interview was posted on Twitter by the Conservative Political Action conference.

“Susan Rice has been appointed as domestic policy adviser,” he said. “ That’s a joke. She doesn’t know anything about domestic policy.

“So, she’s a foreign policy expert that’s been placed in the domestic policy role. And that is just a clear signal that all of our international issues, our foreign policies, are going to be treated like domestic policy.

“This is a problem for the Democratic Party. The foreign policy mess that they are creating is a mess because they are placating the far-left domestically. It’s part of that cancel culture.

“They’re beating up on Israel because it pleases the far-left. They are trying to reach out to Iran and pretend like the Iranian regime should be respected because it pleases the far progressive left. This is the upsidedown world of the Biden administration. President (Joe) Biden is too weak to stop the progressive left from taking over the domestic and foreign policy. (Vice President) Kamala (Harris) does not understand what’s going on…

“And Susan Rice is really happy that Biden is so weak. We have a shadow president in Susan Rice and no one is paying attention.”

Rice is the former national security adviser for President Barack Obama. At one point she had emerged as a serious contender for consideration for Biden’s running mate in 2020.

Rice has faced criticism over her role in the failed Benghazi response that left four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador, dead.

She was also implicated in the unmasking of Americans in intelligence reports during the presidential transition. Some of those Americans turned out to be Donald Trump associates. Rice has denied any wrongdoing.

Grenell was interviewed for CPAC Now by Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, and by Mercedes Schlapp, his wife and former White House director of strategic communications for the Trump administration, Fox News noted.

The White House did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News. Grenell had previously predicted Rice would assume the role as “shadow president.”

“We got a vice president who needs to spend most of her time in the Senate because it’s a 50-50 type. So Susan Rice is extremely excited that vice president Harris is preoccupied in the Senate and the shadow presidency of Susan Rice is front and center,” he said shortly after Biden was sworn in.

Xi Jinping: ‘The World Wants Justice, Not Hegemony’

Jinping’s idea of ‘justice’ is lopsided: Rules must be harmonized, yet privatized. In other words, “you keep your rules and we will keep ours.” Otherwise, butt out. China will not capture the world via hegemony, but by exporting Technocracy. ⁃ TN Editor

Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday that the global governance system should be made more equitable and fair, and that rules set by one country or some nations cannot be imposed on others. “The world wants justice, not hegemony,” Xi said in his keynote speech at the annual Boao Forum for Asia, the region’s answer to Davos.

But why is Xi Jinping doing and saying what he is?

To understand him, we must look at his country’s history. The last 100 years were a red century for China dominated by communism. The vehicle of this domination was the Chinese Communist Party. Many leaders have come and gone but the party remains.

In a couple of months the CCP will celebrate its centenary – 100 years of the party’s founding. A lot has changed in these 100 years – Socialism has taken a back seat, equality has become an inconvenience. The party of peasants and guerillas is seeking global domination and they are not taking any prisoners.

Mao Zedong used to talk about seeking truth from facts. Today, his country specialises in propaganda and falsehoods.

How did this happen?

China is an image of its leader, and Chinese communism is personality-driven. The leader decides which way the party and the country go. Three chapters of Chinese communism are testimony to this.

First was the era of Mao Zedong, an insecure and ruthless leader who presided over deadly famines and a violent cultural revolution.Then came Deng Xiaoping and the era of reforms. China began adopting technocracy, embracing modernity which ended with the presidency of Hu Jintao. And then came Xi Jinping, who is leading China on a war path. This chapter of Chinese communism is still unfolding and he’s already decided on the climax.

A world dominated by the People’s Republic with him at the helm. Xi Jinping keeps talking about the Chinese dream. He plans to do this by putting the party firmly on top. The politburo is now a secretive cabal of which state companies have become party assets. The People’s Liberation Army has been reduced to mercenaries. Xi Jinping is intent on creating a new world order.

China is hijacking world organisations and reshaping them. Chinese nationals head four of the 15 UN agencies. They have left the World Trade Organization and the World Health Organization toothless.

So here’s what a Beijing-led world will look like – Freedom and liberty will be state-regulated, the internet will be heavily censored, and democracy will be reduced to a theory. In addition, we can say goodbye to a rules-based order. This is China’s mega-plan and step one is to test the waters. The South China Sea, where hundreds of Chinese vessels are still sailing in disputed waters is Beijing’s dress rehearsal.
