The CCP elite have many of their best investments and real estate outside China. Confiscate it and auction it off to help defer the economic damage inflicted on us.

        McConnell has been playing nice all this time because he was trying to protect all of his wife’s Chinese relatives and keep the billions of US dollars flowing to them, which they, in turn, were happy to “share” with Cocoaine Mitch and the Missus. Now he’s going to have to decide where his loyalties really lie because I suspect PDJT has a LOT of info about just how many backroom deals the Senate has made with China over the last couple of decades and Mitch could be in deep trouble if that is made public!

        I just read a summary of SCOTUS/Scalia opinion in “Town of Castle Rock v. Gonzales” and it’s confusing to a non-lawyer but seems to be related more to Colorado statutes rather than “Constitutional Duty”. NYT Linda Greenhouse might be making inflammatory accusations about “Constitutional Duty” because the issue involved a woman and restraining order (three children were killed by ex-husband) and an opinion written by Justice Scalia. (Seems like everything is a narrative in support of an agenda, rather than trying to convey information, even in 2005)

        • Lanna says:

          That (2005 Castle Rock decision) reaffirmed the 1989 DeShaney decision which set precedent. “No duty to protect” remains the law today.

          Police vehicles in my north of metro Denver town removed “to serve and protect” and put on a new motto, “prevent thing crime and disorder”. IIRC, this was after another federal court decision (2007?) again reaffirming “no duty to protect”.

        I think he should only accept questions in writing; then call on the
        person who wrote the question so they can ask and he can answer.
        It would provide a sense of order and decorum which is sorely lacking.
        Also, only one question at a time….not these 3/4 part questions.

      Yes Yes sunnyflower, Immediate comments will be random and stupid all over the place, It takes Communists two days to get the Party Line worked out. Perfect timing. Set the Market up for the weekend, and too soon for the Commies to bark their uni-response. I predict Monday, with probable trial balloon snarky questions on Meet the Press. PT could really throw them off their timing by making another anti-Communist new drop.

      It would make them Cross their Beams.

    Normally he’s just so-so when reading a teleprompter, like he’s bored and the inner kid is locked up waiting to get out. However, today you could tell he was pissed and meant business.

    Well now. This will be a Friday to remember forever in our history. No fooling around with China anymore that’s for sure. Are the riots linked as a prime deflection to what is really going on and did the Pres. just give us a huge glimpse at what is being done that is most important for us to know?

    How does this man–and those loyal people working with him to hold the country together– keep on going in the face of all that is being thrown at them and us right now? Pandemic was not enough for them apparently. We now have a ramped up China relationship, a nation burning with racist fakery and a virus that has so much disinformation surrounding it we have no idea what is the truth about it at all. They also have to be preparing for the fact the Nov. election is increasingly threatened by fraudulent voting and the left is doing all it can to knock PT out of the running before election day even though they are putting forth a current candidate who is working with reduced mental faculties. It’s all bizarrely unreal but it is happening.

    It is becoming quite overwhelming to watch, experience and contemplate. Americans are reeling from the drastic changes the covid virus brought and now all this on top of that. I knew it was going to be an incredibly hard election year but this is beyond words hard. Scary, scary times for all of us but especially for our kids and their future as Americans.

    Hold the line people. Be mentally and physically tough as nails and be aware every minute what is going on because things change in the blink of an eye and many people cannot process what the truth of it all is. Question, research, look for the facts always. Thank you SD for keeping the information flowing.

    Trump is uncoupling the USA from China is what I heard.

    1. No more funding to CCP WHO
    2. Reshoring American industry from China
    3. No more CCP spies under cover as grad students in academia (and hopefully visas in tech industry) who steal science and secrets
    4. Delisting Chinese companies from USA stock exchanges, so no more 401K investments going into them
    5. Abrogating all special statuses for Hong Kong (a real arm breaker)

    Very powerful stuff if you think it over. If other major countries in the world join up, it may spell the end of the CCP.

      He still has bigger arrows in his quiver, and always good to hold something in reserve, but this is big, no doubt.

      Now, how will CCP respond? Will they continue their aggressive posture, or try to replace the panda mask, once again?

      Or will they escalate?

      And, I believe it,was Pompeo that said there,will be a,# of announcements from PDJT, over the next week or so, regarding CCP.

      So, did he lump them all together,…

  45. If you listen really closely right after PDJT said “A proclamation to better secure vital American university research…..” you could hear a particular high pitched squeal. No, that was not a mike pickup of Smithfield Hams firing up processing again. That was the squeal of some university administrators having a slush fund evaporate before their eyes. It was not just the specific scientists engaged with China’s Ten Thousand Talents plan that were dining at the feed trough but also associations with the Confucius Institutes and other agreements ensured a continual flow of cash of one form or another to universities. A number of those in positions of authority were getting feeding rights to the slush fund as long as they behaved favorably towards China.
