In the 7 am hour, we are joined by Brig General Robert Spalding, Ret, USAF

US-CHINA EXPERT: Brig. Gen. Robert S. Spalding (USAF Ret.), is a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, focusing on U.S.-China relations, economic and national security, and the Asia-Pacific military balance. He is the author of the book, Stealth War: How China Took Over While America’s Elite Slept.
China expert Robert Spalding reveals the shocking success China has had infiltrating American institutions and compromising our national security.
The media often suggest that Russia poses the greatest threat to America’s national security, but the real danger lies farther east. While those in power have been distracted and disorderly, China has waged a six-front war on America’s economy, military, diplomacy, technology, education, and infrastructure–and they’re winning. It’s almost too late to undo the shocking, though nearly invisible, victories of the Chinese.

In Stealth War, retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Spaldingreveals China’s motives and secret attacks on the West. Chronicling how our leaders have failed to protect us over recent decades, he provides shocking evidence of some of China’s most brilliant ploys, including:

6 AM Hour.. first hour of the show.. we take your calls.. and here are some of Joe’s notes:

This is not an Economic situation.. it is a Health situation.. and we are coming from it from a position of strength

This is your daily reminder that the Swine Flu infected 60 million Americans It sent 274,304 Americans to hospitals It resulted in 12,469 American deaths Where was the Mainstream Media hysteria? Where was the economic shutdown? Where was the endless Obama-bashing?

1. The US is undoubtedly NOT #1 in terms of actual coronavirus cases. China has been lying. 2. Increased diagnoses of coronavirus say nothing about the quality of our system. Italy has far fewer diagnosed cases and seven times as many deaths. 3. Everyone is stupid.

Covid 19 Notes:
Dr Birx succinctly and calmly counters media hysteria: points out that there is no present shortage of hospital beds, nor ventilators…
Audio:Dr Birx

Eric Holder… posted this..
In light of the public health crisis the country is confronting, the states-with federal support-must put in place alternative ways for citizens to register/vote.Through the use of the mails we can vote at home. VOTE AT HOME will allow more people to vote – and keep everyone safe

This is a pitch for #BallotHarvesting, yet another scam from this grifter meerkat.

Ballot Harvesting: “Ballot harvesting” is political jargon for a practice in which organized workers or volunteers collect absentee ballots from certain voters and drop them off at a polling place or election office. Coined by California Republicans, the term carries a negative connotation to suggest improprieties and even election fraud.
No voter ID to get a ballot, and anonymous “ballot harvesting”…why is that hidden in Speaker Pelosi’s coronavirus bill? These are issues that shouldn’t be addressed at this time

Rand Paul was just diagnosed with the deadly Chinese Virus And Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, @sfpelosi tweeted: “Rand Paul’s neighbor was right” in reference to the man that beat Senator Paul and sent him to the hospital Will @SpeakerPelosi condemn this?

Stimulas.. no.. Aid or patch.. or bridge …

Dear libs, Why would the Dems cram a bunch of unrelated nonsense into a bill that should have been solely about providing relief funds to Americans? It’s because they see this crisis as an opportunity to further their own agenda. Wake up & think logically for once.

The final Stimulus bill includes $25,000,000 for The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts It also has $75,000,000 for PBS & NPR This is government at its worst. How many ventilators could that money buy? How many masks could that buy? How many lives could that save?
Los Angeles county is mandating all gun stores close immediately They are also releasing inmates onto the streets in order to “fight the spread” of the virus Democrat Logic: Let criminals run free and restrict law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves What a disaster.

AOC is pissed off illegal aliens won’t receive any cash payments in the economic relief package. I’m pissed off too, AOC. I am pissed off there are people like you in Congress who put illegals first and Americans last!

Just so we’re clear: American “stimulus” money should not go to illegal aliens American “stimulus” money should not go to migrants & refugees American “stimulus” money should not go to the House of Representatives What Congress is doing with our tax dollars is disgraceful

Joe Biden just admitted on live TV that he met with a foreign leader in the midst of a campaign Remember when Democrats launched a 3 year witch hunt because it was RUMORED a Trump staffer talked with a foreign government Why does Joe get away with this? Liberal Privilege!
Audio: Joe Biden speaking w foreign government

Another migrant caravan is heading to the US border While we suffer under the strain of the China Virus, we can’t afford to let a single unchecked, unvetted, possibly unhealthy illegal alien enter the country RT if the southern border should be COMPLETELY CLOSED

Did you know: Harvard has a 40.9 BILLION dollar endowment—the largest in America Yet it just laid off at least 275 dining hall workers to “cut costs” Wait—they once paid Elizabeth Warren $400k to teach ONE class but they can’t provide paid sick leave to low wage workers?
