• A Disturbing Alliance: China, Russia, Iran, American Leftists … and the Media

    Surge Summary: As the coronavirus challenge groans on, China, Russia, Iran, some Leftists and the Mainstream Media are peddling the same kinds of misinformation and warped perspectives toward the United States.

    It shouldn’t be shocking to hear that our enemies are trying to use the coronavirus to deeply damage us and advance their own evil purposes.

    U.S. intelligence services and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are pointing out that China, where the virus originated, Russia and Iran are using the same messaging on social media here in the United States to spread false information about the virus to panic the American people.

    Those dictatorships are hoping to keep America shutdown.  Their ultimate goal is the financial collapse of the United States so we are no longer a factor in the world, unable to check their aggressive designs.  It’s disgusting, but totally predictable.  They are bad nations run by bad people.

    What’s unnerving is that there are other actors involved in the United States, who are sending similar messages.

    For example, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now urging people to refuse to go back to work.  During a recent interview, she said this:

    “When we talk about this idea of reopening society you know, only in America does the president — when the president tweets about liberation — does he mean ‘go back to work.’  

    “When we have this discussion about going back or reopening, I think a lot of people should just say no — we’re not going back to that.  We’re not going back to working 70-hour weeks just so that we could put food on the table. . .”

    This is the same person who celebrated the possible destruction of the American energy industry.  She would rather we be dependent on foreign dictators than to be energy independent.  But AOC is not alone in calling for a worker revolt.

    Fellow Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley said, “We just have to reject any calls for a return to normal because that normal was what was slowly killing people.”  I don’t know what worker’s paradise she’s designing, but encouraging people not to work is the height of irresponsibility.

    Speaking of fake news, the Washington Post ran a story yesterday suggesting that Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the CDC, had said that Covid-19 would come back in the fall and be worse than ever.  Headlines like this one went “viral” (pun intended):  “CDC Director Suggests Coronavirus Could Be Worse In The Fall.”

    Dr. Redfield was so upset that he asked to speak at yesterday’s briefing to clarify his remarks.  He said he told the Post that if the virus returns in the fall, it could be more challenging for the health system because it would occur when the flu season begins.  He added that more people should get their flu shots so we can keep the flu at bay while we fight the Covid resurgence.

    But the Post twisted his words to stoke fear, implying that the virus itself would somehow be worse.  That’s something I would expect from the mullahs of Iran.
