For the sake of our souls, as well as for our bodies, we must deregulate to the extent necessary to bring our medical supply chain back to the United States. We must bring chip manufacturing back in a big way. And we must invest in artificial intelligence and quantum computing.
China simply orders companies to hand over their intellectual property. A South Korean conglomerate is abusing the Korean court system to achieve the same end. Why hasn’t the U.S. government intervened?
Recent experience and the Western mindset may be leading Beijing to reach that conclusion.
Does Trump have what it takes to fulfill that which he was called to do, as Lincoln, FDR, and Reagan did for their generations? Or, will he surrender to the democratic-globalist oligarchs who control our dying society?
Facing 30 percent unemployment, we’re importing more foreign workers. Why?
Only by taking strong and unprecedented measures can the United States and the world protect their citizens and counter a delinquent and devious country like The Communist People’s Republic of China.
Unfortunately, the pandemic-inspired shutdown of the economy only threatens to further corporate consolidation in our economy.

President Trump has shown great leadership during this manufactured crisis. Let’s hope he continues to ponder his observation that we do not want to get ourselves into a situation in which the cure is worse than the disease.
At some point, Beijing needs to be held financially accountable for the worldwide havoc, misery, and death caused by the Chinese virus.
The Chinese Communist Party’s threats include potential disruption to global supply chains, financial markets, and deadly pandemics. But the “soft power” spread by Confucius Institutes on college and university campuses is another type of virus we must immediately quarantine from American culture.
It’s time for Beijing to come clean.
America’s small businesses, our machinists, die-casters, plastic injection molders, electronics parts suppliers, and others are eager to get to work providing the medical equipment the nation needs but the companies that hold the patents and process patents for this equipment need to open up and ask for bids.
Coronavirus and its awful toll may be ending a second American holiday from history, one in which we entertained boutique notions like a world without borders and all the existential risks that come with it.
