The Very Real Existential Threat

Commentary by Jim Watkins

You have probably heard about to Communist threat?

Secretary of State this week commented on the threat, reminding us that it is the greatest threat facing America. But does the average citizen really know what that means? Do we think it means China wants to land on our shores and take over our cities? Do we think the threat means China wants to bomb us?

No. It is none of these obvious, perhaps even archaic and more traditional threats. It is much more subtle, and in fact is on multiple fronts. The least of which is the economic threat. Never doubt the Chinese would like to have an upper hand on the American economy,but because it is a closed system, it will never achieve our level of success. Like it or not, Free market capitalism has as its greatest advantage, transparency, it is a meritocracy based on economic fundamentals that means everyone agrees to play by the rules. In China, a communist dictatorship, the only transparency is what the government wants people to believe.

But lets take a look at the two other grave threats China poses to the West.

1. The Communist philosophy. Remember, a godless government means government can dictate rights.  The doctrine is being taught to our children in college. It is the idea that the collective is more important than the individual, the State or , Big Government can solve the major problems like health care, income inequality, even to a certain degree, gender-equality, but the cost is the State regulates everything. This is China, this is North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, places where the Government, those in power, make the rules and oppress all who oppose. Religious freedom in many of the countries is a death sentence, the right to assembly, the right to protest, the right to own property is gone. And yet 35% of our youth say socialism, which is the basis and foundation by which Communism is based, is a good idea, that paternal government, is a better approach to governing. This is an existential threat to the idea of a democratic republic where individual rights are bestowed upon us by our Creator, and that government serves people, not the other way around.

It would be wrong to suggest that China trying to subvert people into adopting communism in the United States, but it would be correct to say that any disruption, including social conflicts, that could weaken the political system in the U.S. would be advantageous to the Communist Party of China. One primary reason for destabilizing the U.S. is that it makes us more vulnerable to spying, and in some cases, stealing of American technology to use against us in military application. There are millions of people who wake up everyday and go to work in China as what we would call cybercriminals, but they work for the Ministry of Truth. Their job, to find weakness, to collect data on Americans, to gather information on people who positions of power in American business, politics, and entertainment. If you are not concerned with this, then you underscore the intentions of the Chinese to your own demise.

The second great threat China poses is the exporting of technology to other world government leaders who, like the CCP, could care less about human rights and are excited about the idea of using technology to oppress dissenters and control millions of people through social credit scores and monitoring. You might not care about this, you jight even think it is not dissimilar to the way the U.S has a credit agency, and that everyone shares thier data, so whats the big deal? Except that I would remind you that the Government, at least not yet, is using tech to monitor every transaction to to use the ability to cut you off, as a way to pressure you into complicity. This is the ugly face of Totalitarianism.

And i you think this is all some dystopian scare tactic,YouTube Social Credit Score in China and see what comes up. It will frighten you, and you will come to understand that when Mike Pompeo says China is a bigger threat than people imagine, you better believe it.

The purpose of Speaking Out if awareness. I will bring you awareness. If you believe Freedom, religious freedom, social and economic freedom and limited government is good and worth preserving, then let’s work together. 

I will bring you updates, and you share these updates withouthers. We simply cannot live in the shadows. It is time to pick sides, and its not about Trump verses No Trump. Its much bigger than that. The real threat is the attempt for other world leaders and governments to marginalize the U.S., marginalize freedom of speech, marginalize freedom of religions express.

Goodnight America

I have asked myself how is it China is ruled by one political party? How is it that China also controls the media? How is that 1 billion people seem to live under this illusion that the Party, or the State, has their best intentions in mind when they govern?

You have to seriously ask yourself this question because all of this that I have just described about China didn’t just happen overnight. It happened because a very small, but determined, group pf Marxist believed that a very small, but powerful force could control a country. All you had to do was control the education, marginalize religion, own the media (print, television, newspapers and now the Internet), and use fear or shame to control the masses.

And all of this is happening before our very eyes in the U.S. We are slowly morphing into a one-party nation. We are slowly morphing into a nation where the media has chosen which side it wants to be on, and will support and propagate whatever that party wants in order for them to remain in power and those who serve it also stay in power.

What surprises me the most is Trump. He wasn’t supposed to happen. He wasn’t supposed to win. But he did and the Left’s attempt to take full control of America was foiled. Even after he won the “swamp” tried to take him out. When the economy, under his guidance of policy and de-regulation began to have a positive affect on people’s lives, the media was right there to perpetuate bigotry, racism and the rest, pinning it not only to one man, but to those who support him.

Today, we have at least four front-running Democrats, all of them marxists, who truly believe that they will fundamentally change America so that the State becomes so powerful that no one will ever defeat them.

Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are anti capitalists and they will “fight for the poor” by making sure we are all equally poor (what they call true “income equality”) and they will also make sure White America never gets control of the White House, and Congress again.

They do this because they believe America is a racists country and always has been.

They believe we must pay for our racial sins and the only way to do it is to socialize every aspect of American life. They believe the only way to get environmental justice is to control energy distribution, under the guise of climate change control (the fallacy that humans can lower the earth’s temperature by stopping the use of oil and coal); they believe that the minority is the victim and the oppressors must pay. Who are the oppressors? Those who believe in free-market capitalism, and those who believe in God. You see, the faithful are the oppressors. They are the ones who prevent women from having abortion rights, they are the ones who discriminate against Islam and/or gender liberation, they are the ones who make us feel guilty because we can’t have our rights to be whatever and whoever we want to be.

It’s over and I know it will be because the Marxists have already one. 

Even if Trump gets re-elected, which he will not because Google and the Democratic Alliance of America (a progressive socialist group funded by billionaires) have already prepared for the next 15 months. If Trump does survive the media, he won’t survive the radicalized left who will most assuredly take him out.

And those who support Trump, they will be demonized, and when enraged, will be showcased as “the problem” in America.

History will recall that Trump ended up being the last true capitalist president. And i really pray that I am wrong. But I know human nature and the problem is far too many people look to government to solve their problems. But like our current medical system, it’s not about prevention, it’s about maintenance. There is no money in curing people. If you cure them they don’t need you, and one thing government needs to survive is people giving it power to control their lives “for their own good.”

It was good while it lasted

Why China Should Scare the SH*T Out of Every Single American

Does anybody on this planet care about the fact that China is holding over a million people (probably more like two to three million) in concentration camps and torturing people for religious views?

Does anyone care that China is now a complete military-totalitarian State that now effectively surveills tens of millions of people, and keeps tabs on as many people throughout the world every day (and that they probably have a profile on you. Bought anything from China lately?)

Does anyone care that China, through its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is back-dooring its way into every key infrastructure project it can get its hands on in Africa, Central America, South America, Europe and the Middle East? And that by developing these projects, technology theft AND control is now assured for the most powerful (and most populated) totalitarian country on the planet, one that tortures and oppresses its citizens on a massive scale without even breaking a sweat?

Does anyone care that California, the most populous State in America, sent a delegation to participate in the BRI, with hopes of expanding relations to aid in the States’ infrastructure program (partly because California is bankrupt and they can’t count on the Fed’s support under the current president).

Remember, California has pledged to go completely renewable by 2049, and China has lots of cheap equipment to give them in exchange for—???.

China is not our friend (nor is Xi a “good guy,” as Trump often likes to say). China has one goal, no different from the Ayatollahs, or the less potent Russia: global dominance.

China’s advantages are many, including:

  • They control half of the world’s population
  • The wantonly steal technology and has no moral qualm about it
  • They torture people at will if they feel that individual poses a threat to The Party or the State
  • They are torturing millions of people everyday in concentration camps (no different than Stalin, Pol Pot or Hitler, right under our noses every single day)
  • China is an atheistic country that imprisons people simply because they express faith or dissent.
  • China has been caught putting microchips in other nation’s hardware (that it sells cheaply on the open international market)  so it can infiltrate, through cyber-technology, energy plants, communication systems, satellite surveillance, military hardware, and the list goes on and on.

It’s in the news, right under our noses (and most of it not being reported). China slowly extorting major companies and world governments under the guise of “mutual prosperity.”

And our stupid media only cares about using the latest trade negotiations to make Trump look like a buffoon, when he seems to be the only world leader who has the guts to stand up to the Chinese government to ensure they don’t become the dominant world power through slow attrition.

Do we not understand just how detrimental China is on the world stage if it ‘sets the pace of human evolution,’ for decades to come?

This form of government, this kind of tyranny, goes against every decent principle there is to behold in humanity, the love of freedom and the desire for self-determination, all sacrificed for the sake of empowering a State that will continue to exert itself until we are all under the watchful eye and control of, the great ‘Party.’

Mistake not! These are dangerous times.

God is weeping at the suffering going on each day, and yet the moral people, the freedom-loving people, the so-called progressive nations do nothing except bicker over our own political posturing.

To exhibit such weakness, one only has to observe current U.S. leadership and its inability to control our own borders.

I feel like I am watching Rome burn and yet the fiddler continues to play, as if there is nothing to worry about.

I wonder if I will be able to even write a blog like this ten years from now, and this is why I hope my message, and the message being told by others, gets heard today, so we can prepare ourselves for this ideological war that is currently ensuing between the freedom-loving West (or what’s left of it), and the atheistic, totalitarian East who seeks world dominance.

We all need to be WOKE.
