On July 16, 2020, Attorney General Bill Barr took Hollywood to task for its cozy relationship with the Chinese Communist Party.
During a speech in Grand Rapids, Michigan Thursday, Attorney General Bill Barr went after Hollywood for capitulation to the Chinese Communist Party.
“The People’s Republic of China is now engaged in an economic blitzkrieg, an aggressive, orchestrated, whole-of-government, indeed, whole-of-society, campaign to seize the commanding heights of the global economy and to surpass the United States as the world’s preeminent superpower,” Barr stated.
“Hollywood actors, producers, and directors pride themselves on celebrating freedom and the human spirit. And every year at the Academy Awards, Americans are lectured about how this country falls short of Hollywood’s ideals of social justice. But Hollywood now regularly censors its own movies to appease the Chinese Communist Party, the world’s most powerful violator of human rights. This censorship infects not only versions of movies that are released in China, but also many that are shown in American theaters to American audiences,” he added. “Many Hollywood films that have been altered, one way or another, to conform to CCP propaganda.”
Barr also highlighted China’s plans to position itself as a world leader in trade and technology.
“A centerpiece of this effort is the Communist Party’s ‘Made in China 2025’ initiative, a plan for PRC domination of high-tech industries like robotics, advanced information technology, aviation, and electric vehicles. Backed by hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies, this initiative poses a real threat to U.S. technological leadership,” Barr said.
Katie Pavlich of Townhall noted that Trump is set to make an announcement about creating more incentives for American companies to manufacture products in the U.S. or allied nations.
“You’ll see over the next few weeks I’m doing something that is extremely bold. You’ll see. I think you’ll be extremely impressed by it. I’ve been fighting this with China for a long time. You had the globalists, they want to make everything in China. We can make our pencils here,” Trump declared. “I’m very upset with China, I think what China did is a disgrace.”
“Whether they knew it or not I won’t get into that but one thing, they knew it well enough that it didn’t get into the rest of China but it did get out to the rest of the world including Europe and the U.S. then they tried to blame it on Europe, then they tried to blame it on American soldiers, they did everything,” Trump commented. “It’s the China virus, whether you like it or not, it’s the China virus…I am very angry with China.”
Political elites have downplayed the China question for decades.
Now, that the U.S. finds itself in a generalized crisis largely the result of the Chinese government’s incompetence in containing a virus, policymakers must reconsider the degree of economic ties the country has with China.
Policymakers should also question the amount of immigration we receive from the country as well due to the degree of corporate and military espionage Chinese nationals disproportionately commit.
China is not a friend and it’s probably best that American leadership recognize that before it’s too late.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
