President Trump landed the endorsement of hundreds of senior military leaders Monday. The endorsements come just two weeks ahead of the first election debate with former Vice President Joe Biden.

“The 2020 election affords the American people an urgently needed opportunity to affirm their devotion to the Constitution of the United States and to the American way of life. As senior leaders of America’s military, we took an oath to defend the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic. At present, our country is now confronted with enemies here and abroad, as well as a once in a century pandemic. As retired military officers, we believe that Donald J. Trump has been tested as few other presidents have and is the proven leader to confront these dangers,” a letter donning 235 signatures states. “President Trump’s resolute stands have deterred our enemies from aggression against us and our allies. The proposed defense cuts by the Democrats will, in our professional judgment, create a potentially perilous situation for the United States during a time of great external and internal threats to our Nation.”

In addition to giving an endorsement, military leaders heavily criticized the record of President Obama and Vice President Biden.

“During the Obama/Biden administration, America’s armed forces were subjected to a series of ill-considered and debilitating budget cuts. The Democrats have once again pledged to cut defense spending, undermining our military strength,” the letter continues. “The Democrats’ opposition to border security, their pledge to return to the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, their antagonism towards the police and planned cuts to military spending will leave the United States more vulnerable to foreign enemies.”

The endorsements come shortly after The Atlantic Magazine published a discredited story alleging President Trump didn’t want to visit a WWI cemetery in France because the men who died there were “suckers and losers.”

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Tuesday morning the Senate will vote on an additional Wuhan coronavirus relief package this week after months of stonewalling and refusal to negotiate by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He’s also calling out Pelosi and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on the real reason they’re blocking relief for American families in a presidential election year.

“Senate Republicans have been trying for months to deliver more bipartisan relief to the American people. In July, we proposed another sweeping package totaling more than $1 trillion. Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer said no. In August, we proposed narrowing discussions to the most urgent and bipartisan subjects. They blocked that too,” McConnell said. “Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer said a targeted deal on jobless benefits and the Paycheck Protection Program would be ‘piecemeal,’ but then Speaker Pelosi came rushing back to pass the most piecemeal bill imaginable: Postal Service legislation that completely ignored the health, economic, and education crises facing families.”

“Everything Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer have done suggests one simple motivation: They do not want American families to see any more bipartisan aid before the polls close on President Trump’s re-election. They have taken Americans’ health, jobs, and schools hostage for perceived partisan gain,” he continued. “Today, the Senate Republican majority is introducing a new targeted proposal, focused on some of the very most urgent healthcare, education, and economic issues. It does not contain every idea our party likes. I am confident Democrats will feel the same. Yet Republicans believe the many serious differences between our two parties should not stand in the way of agreeing where we can agree and making law that helps our nation. I will be moving immediately today to set up a floor vote as soon as this week.”

McConnell also pointed out Pelosi’s fellow House members have repeatedly asked to vote on a relief package, which she has rejected.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Germany and Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell spoke during the third night of the 2020 RNC and took apart the foreign policy doctrine of the Obama/Biden administration.

“President Trump also sent an aircraft in the middle of night to deal with Iran. But that plane was on a different mission – an air strike to take out the head of Iran’s terror machine who plotted the deaths of Americans,” Grenell said, referring to the January 2020 drone strike on Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

He also went after Democrats for their continued conspiracy theories and illegal action with the Russia investigation.

“As Acting Director of National Intelligence, I saw the Democrats’ entire case for Russian collusion. And what I saw made me sick to my stomach. The Obama-Biden Administration secretly launched a surveillance operation on the Trump campaign, and silenced the many brave intelligence officials who spoke up against it. They presented bogus information as facts. They lied to judges. Then they classified anything that undermined their case,” Grenell said. “And after Donald Trump won the election, when they should have continued the American tradition of helping the president-elect transition into the White House, they tried instead to undercut him even more. Former Vice President Joe Biden asked intelligence officials to uncover the hidden information on President Trump’s incoming National Security Advisor three weeks before the Inauguration.”

“But that’s the Democrats. Between surveillance, classifications, leaks, and puppet candidates, they never want the American people to know who’s actually calling the shots,” he continued. “But with Donald Trump, you always know exactly who is in charge. Because the answer…is you. You’re in charge. Not lobbyists. Not special interests. Not warmongers, or China sympathizers, or globalization fanatics. With Donald Trump and Mike Pence in the White House, the boss is the American people.”

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has sued for records of taxpayer funded trips for Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden’s son. More specifically, they want information about trips where Hunter Biden was protected by the Secret Service.

“Vice President Joe Biden and Hunter Biden reportedly flew on Air Force Two for an official trip to Beijing in December 2013. The records obtained by Judicial Watch from the Secret Service show Hunter Biden arrived in Tokyo on December 2, 2013, and departed for Beijing two days later. While it is typical for the families of the president and vice president to travel with them, questions have been raised about whether Hunter Biden used the government trip to further his business interests,” Judicial Watch explains. “Hunter Biden’s December 2013 trip to China received new examination in 2019 because he was forming a Chinese private equity fund, Bohai Harvest RST (BHR), in which he still reportedly retains a 10 percent share.”

The lawsuit was issued after Freedom of Information Act requests were ignored or given incomplete responses.

“Given the Burisma-Ukraine-China influence-peddling scandals, Hunter Biden’s extensive international travel during the Obama-Biden presidency, including at least five trips to China, raises serious questions about where else he traveled in the final two and a half years of the Obama administration,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton released in a statement. “The Secret Service’s incomplete response to our straightforward FOIA request on Hunter Biden’s travel has forced us to go to court – once again – to fight for the public’s right to know.”

Biden has admitted he would not have been able to lock down certain business deals had his last name not been the same as his then powerful father.

During an event at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., Biden campaign advisor Ron Klein, who also worked for Vice President Biden in the White House and led the response to the Ebola outbreak, explained how the Obama administration did “everything wrong” in response to the 2009 swine flu crisis.

“I wasn’t involved directly in the H1N1 response but I lived through it as a White House staffer and what I would say about it is a bunch of really talented, really great people were working on it and we did every possible thing wrong. Sixty million Americans got H1N1 during that period of time. It is purely a fortuity that this isn’t one of the great mass casualty events in American history. It had nothing to do with us doing anything right. It was just luck.

After the national strategic stockpile was depleted, the Obama administration failed to refill it. When Wuhan coronavirus hit, it was severely lacking in much needed personal protective equipment and other supplies.

After the swine flu epidemic in 2009, a safety-equipment industry association and a federally sponsored task force both recommended that depleted supplies of N95 respirator masks, which filter out airborne particles, be replenished by the stockpile, which is maintained by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

That didn’t happen, according to Charles Johnson, president of the International Safety Equipment Assn.

The stockpile drew down about 100 million masks during the 2009 epidemic, Johnson said.

“Our association is unaware of any major effort to restore the stockpile to cover that drawdown,” he said.

Speaking to donors during a phone call Tuesday night, former Vice President Joe Biden said the Wuhan coronavirus crisis has been “exciting” because it gives Democrats an opportunity to pursue their far-left political agenda.

“I believe because sort of, the blinders have been taken off because of this Covid crisis. I think people are realizing, ‘My Lord, look at what is possible. Look at the institutional changes we can make without us becoming a socialist country or any of that malarkey. That we can make to provide the opportunities to change the institutional drawbacks from education all the way through to all the other things we talked about,” Biden said according to the pool report of the call. “If I sound like I’m excited, I am.”

This position has been used for weeks by House Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, to take advantage of the crisis.

In March, Pelosi held up a major $2 trillion relief package after packing a new bill full of far-left agenda items like extreme emissions standards for airlines, mandatory mail-in voting, collective bargaining, $15 federal minimum wage, race and gender quotas for company boards and more.

Over the past week, Pelosi allowed the Paycheck Protection Program to run dry at the request of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This behavior prompted a brutal and accurate ad from the Trump campaign.

Biden isn’t a moderate. He simply pretends to be.

Speaking to reporters at the White House Tuesday evening, President Trump announced a freeze on U.S. funding for the World Health Organization. During the lengthy fight against Wuhan coronavirus, the organization has repeatedly published false information about the disease.

“The WHO, that’s the World Health Organization, receives vast amounts of money from the United States and we pay for a majority, the biggest portion of their money, and they actually criticized and disagreed with my travel ban at the time I did it and they were wrong. They’ve been wrong about a lot of things. They had a lot of information early and they didn’t want to…they seem to be very China centric so we’re going to look into it. We pay for the majority of the money that we get,” Trump said.

“They called it wrong. They really missed the call. They could have called it months earlier. They should have known and they probably did know so we’ll be looking into that very carefully,” he continued. “We’re going to put a hold on money sent to the WHO. We’re going to put a very powerful hold on it and we’re going to see. It’s a great thing if it works but when they call every shot wrong it’s no good.”

The World Health Organization has been lying on China’s behalf for months and the consequences have been lethal.

On December 29, 2019 Taiwan officials, who have been successfully combatting the disease, told the WHO the virus was transmissible human-to-human. On behalf of China, WHO buried the information and said nearly three weeks later it was not transmissible human-to-human. WHO leadership also criticized President Trump for shutting down travel to and from China in late January.

At a minimim, the WHO is corrupt and should be investigated.

Yesterday afternoon the Chinese Communist Party in Beijing announced journalists from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post have been expelled from the country. Journalists who remain are being told to report to the Chinese government.

All of these outlets were working on stories about the Wuhan coronavirus, which the government has repeatedly covered up. This censorship led to a devastating pandemic, which is wreaking havoc on the global economy as the virus continues its lethal path of destruction.

This expulsion of reporters, who have been publishing crucial information about the virus, proves China has more to hide. The country’s officials claim they want to be better understood and yet, continue to shut down any last piece of transparency on this issue. Why? Because the truth of the Wuhan coronavirus timeline is devastating to the regime and completely undermines their ongoing narrative about competent handling of the crisis.

In recent days, the Chinese foreign minister and other officials have unleashed libelous claims the U.S. military started the Wuhan coronavirus. Reporting proves otherwise.

Chinese laboratories identified a mystery virus as a highly infectious new pathogen by late December last year, but they were ordered to stop tests, destroy samples and suppress the news, a Chinese media outlet has revealed.

A regional health official in Wuhan, centre of the outbreak, demanded the destruction of the lab samples that established the cause of unexplained viral pneumonia on January 1. China did not acknowledge there was human-to-human transmission until more than three weeks later.

The detailed revelations by Caixin Global, a respected independent publication, provide the clearest evidence yet of the scale of the cover-up in the crucial early weeks when the opportunity was lost to control the outbreak.

Censors have been rapidly deleting the report from the Chinese internet.

“The disinformation campaign that they are waging is designed to shift responsibility. Now is not the time for recrimination. Now is the time to solve this global pandemic and work to take down risks to Americans and people all across the world,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters Tuesday.

“We know this much: We know that the first government to be aware of the Wuhan virus was the Chinese Government. That imposes a special responsibility to raise the flag, to say, ‘We have a problem, this is different and unique and presents risk.’ And it took an awful long time for the world to become aware of this risk that was sitting there, residing inside of China,” he continued. “We’ll do the after-action when the time is right. Every nation has a responsibility to share all of their data, all of their information in as timely and accurate a fashion as they have the ability to do not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because that’s how you save lives for your own people as well. The Chinese Communist Party had a responsibility to do this not only for Americans and Italians and South Koreans and Iranians who are now suffering, but for their own people as well.”

The Chinese have moved to scrub all evidence of the virus and where it came from. They’re shutting down labs that could be used to find a vaccine and have been arresting people, including a doctor who died from the disease, who have been sounding the alarm for months.

The Shanghai laboratory where researchers published the world’s first genome sequence of the deadly coronavirus that causes Covid-19 has been shut down.

The laboratory at the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Centre was ordered to close for “rectification” on January 12, a day after Professor Zhang Yongzhen’s team published the genome sequence on open platforms. It closed temporarily the following day.

The release of the data helped researchers develop test kits for the virus.

“The centre was not given any specific reasons why the laboratory was closed for rectification. [We have submitted] four reports [asking for permission] to reopen but we have not received any replies,” a source with the centre said, requesting anonymity because of the matter’s sensitivity.

“The closure has greatly affected the scientists and their research when they should be racing against the clock to find the means to help put the novel coronavirus outbreak under control,” the source said.

China continues to lie about a virus that started in their country. They allowed it to spread to the rest of the world by engaging in lethal censorship. People are dead and lives have been destroyed in a matter of days due to a cratering economy. The only question now is how Beijing will be held accountable.

Speaking from the White House Monday afternoon, President Trump announced new and stricter guidance for restaurants, bars, the number of people at a gathering and more as the war against Wuhan coronavirus continues.

“We’ve made the decision to further toughen the guidelines and blunt the infection now. We’d much rather be ahead of the curve than behind it,” Trump said. “My administration is recommending that all Americans, including the young and healthy, work to engage in schooling from home when possible, avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 people, avoid discretionary travel and avoid eating and drinking in bars, restaurants and public food courts.”

“If everyone makes this change or these critical changes and sacrifices now we will rally together as one nation and we will defeat the virus and have a big celebration together,” he continued. “Our government is prepared to do whatever it takes.”

President Trump also announced a candidate for a Wuhan coronavirus vaccine has started a trial. Dr. Anthony Fauci said the first injection was today.

“We now need to appeal to every single American about stopping the spread of this virus,” Dr. Deborah Birx said, specifically calling on the millennial generation to step up and take responsibility. “To be able to address this virus comprehensively, that we cannot see, for which we don’t have a vaccine or a therapeutic, the only thing we have right now is the amazing ingenuity and compassion of the American people. We’re appealing to all Americans to take these steps to protect each other and to ensure that the virus doesn’t spread. These guidelines are very specific, they’re very detailed, they will only work if every American takes this together to heart and responds as one nation and one people to stop the spread of this virus.”

When asked how long Americans should expect these kind of restrictions to go on, President Trump said the virus could be “washed out” by July or August. He said the economy, which is taking a massive hit on Main Street and Wall Street, will “work itself out.”

This is a breaking story, stay tuned for updates.

As the race for the Democrat nomination for president continues to heat up, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and his team have their sights set on the new front runner: Bernie Sanders.

The rivalry between the two started immediately when Bloomberg, a billionaire Sanders regularly condemns, entered the race for the White House in November. But as Sanders continues to rack up the delegates, Team Bloomberg is going all in on his background and dumping a whole bunch of unpleasant research all over the airwaves.

During an interview with CNN Tuesday morning, Bloomberg Senior Advisor Timothy O’Brien held nothing back when he exposed Sanders’ background. His history includes writing about female rape fantasies, children running around naked, children touching each other in private places and more.

The anchor is obviously shocked, but she shouldn’t be. Sanders’ record on this stuff has been out there for years. It’s been exposed by digital media outlets and conveniently ignored by the “mainstream” press.

MotherJones did a lengthy feature on Sanders’ essays. Here’s a sample:

Treating children with kid gloves, he believed, was turning them into sexually repressed worker drones. In a 1969 essay in the Freeman, he wrote, “In Vermont, at a state beach, a mother is reprimanded by Authority for allowing her 6 month old daughter to go about without her diapers on. Now, if children go around naked, they are liable to see each others sexual organs, and maybe even touch them. Terrible thing! If we [raise] children up like this it will probably ruin the whole pornography business, not to mention the large segment of the general economy which makes its money by playing on peoples sexual frustrations.”

Over to my HotAir colleague Ed Morrissey:

In regard to Sanders’ intense focus on sex and children, this was a big part of the Left at the time. It didn’t catch on much in America, thank the Lord, but it did in France and Germany in their “1968 Movement.” France in particular is only now beginning to address the damage done.
