“The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.”

-David Rockefeller, after visiting China in 1973

Creating the Red Dragon: How America Handed China Over to the Communists (With Alex Newman)

Alex Newman explains how Communist China (the Red Dragon) was created by global elites and America’s State Department. When Mao was given control of China, he used the “Great Leap Forward” and the “Cultural Revolution” to become immortalized forever. Mao murdered over 80,000,000 of his own people, but the Left still reveres him today. To turn traditional China into Communist China, Mao demanded that the “four olds” be done away with: old culture, old ideology, old customs, and old traditions. This is what is happening in America today, as leftists follow Mao’s strategy.

AGENDA Weekly Brief

Week of September 4-10

Dear Friends,

2 Chronicles 16:9 says, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him.” Taken in the context of the life of King Asa, this verse stands as a challenge to trust God rather than trusting our own reasoning and abilities. God is waiting to show Himself strong in our lives. What does He see in our hearts?

1. DOCUMENTS EXPOSE COLLUSION BETWEEN BIG GOVERNMENT AND BIG TECH: New documents in a lawsuit from Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmidt and Louisiana Attorney General Eric Landry reveal that the federal government colluded directly with Big Tech companies to censor Covid “misinformation” on social media.

At least 11 federal agencies engaged in this nefarious and unconstitutional activity, including the White House, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the CDC, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the Office of the Surgeon General, the Census Bureau, the Food and Drug Administration, the FBI, the State Department, and the Treasury Department. Schmitt called the censorship activities “a massive, sprawling federal ‘Censorship Enterprise,’ which includes dozens of federal officials across at least eleven federal agencies.”

Dr. Christiane Northrup, who was maligned as one of the “Disinformation Dozen,” said, “I am thrilled to see that both Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeffrey Landry of Louisiana have had the courage to take a stand against the massive and well-orchestrated censorship that has attempted to silence me, my colleagues and quite frankly, hundreds of others.”

Ed. Note: The Deep State’s “Censorship Enterprise” is truly Orwellian. Attorney John W. Whitehead put it best, “Big Tech wedded to Big Government has become Big Brother.”

2. RUSSIA TURNS OFF THE GAS, ENERGY CRISIS WORSENS: After finance ministers from the G7 agreed to impose a price cap on the sale of Russian oil, Russia suspended the reopening of the Nord Stream 1 pipeline, declaring it would remain closed until Western sanctions were lifted. The announcement sent European gas prices soaring by as much as 30%.

Zero Hedge reports, “More than 70,000 Czechs are protesting in Prague, the capital, demanding the ruling coalition take a neutral stance on the Ukraine war to ensure energy supplies from Russia aren’t cut off ahead of winter.” The Economist notes, “Already 14% of families in Britain are behind on their utility bills.”

One of Europe’s largest steel production plants, Germany’s ArcelorMittal, has shut down two plants and idled one due to rising energy prices. CEO Reiner Blaschek said, “With gas and electricity prices increasing tenfold within just a few months, we are no longer competitive in a market that is 25% supplied by imports.”

Reuters reports, “Some of Europe’s biggest banks are preparing to use back-up generators and to dim the lights as they brace for potential power cuts and energy rationing that threaten the money system underpinning the region’s economy.”

3. ENERGY LOCKDOWNS ARRIVE IN EUROPE: European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen proposed “mandatory” energy rationing to “flatten the curve” amid Europe’s self-inflicted energy crisis. Ministers in the U.K. are preparing an information campaign to persuade people to voluntarily reduce energy use this winter. People in Switzerland could pay a fine of up to $3,050 USD or be imprisoned for up to three years for breaking the country’s new winter heating rules. Belgian Minister of Energy Tinne Van der Straeten warned, “The next 5 to 10 winters will be terrible if nothing is done. We must act at the source, at the European level, and work on freezing gas prices.” French President Emmanuel Macron said that France is nearing the “end of abundance.”

In a video entitled, “Back to the Dark Ages, “Tucker Carlson commented on Europe’s energy crisis: “Energy is the key to a functioning society, and the elites don’t care…Or maybe they do care — and they’re making things worse on purpose…You can reach a place in your society where the people in charge and their lapdogs in the media become so completely disconnected from the concerns of actual people, become so totally uninterested in the lives of citizens, that society becomes very volatile, and we are fast approaching that point.”

Ed. Note: By rejecting fossil fuels, embracing the lie of environmentalism, and imposing sanctions on their largest energy supplier (Russia), Europe has brought a massive energy crisis upon itself. While he was President, Trump warned German politicians that this would happen.

4. ENERGY LOCKDOWNS IN AMERICA: Amid record-breaking heat, over 22,000 Xcel Energy customers in Colorado were prevented from reducing home temperature below 78 degrees, being greeted with a message “energy emergency” on their “smart” thermostats.

Power grid operators in California, the state that just outlawed all new gas-powered vehicles by 2035, encouraged customers to limit energy usage for the ninth day in a row amid a searing heat wave.

Ed. Note: For more, read They Will Flatten the Curve of Your Energy Use in this week’s selected articles.

5. COVID VACCINE PROPAGANDA AND CASUALTIES: Authoritarians only invoke God’s name when it suits their purposes. “I really believe this is why God gave us two arms. One for the flu shot and the other one for the COVID shot,” said White House Covid-19 response coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha. Dr. Jha also said, “We expect millions will choose to get their [updated bivalent] COVID-19 shot at the same time or over the course of the fall when people go in for routine checkups. The good news is you can get both your flu shot and COVID shot at the same time. It’s actually a good idea.”

CDC survey data records that over 55% of children who received the Pfizer or Moderna Covid vaccine experienced a “systemic reaction” (a reaction beyond the injection site). An Epoch Times investigation found that the vaccinated are more likely than unvaccinated to “be a COVID-19 case, hospitalization, or death in 25 states.”

Evidence that Covid vaccines are toxic and deadly continues to mount. Below are a few noteworthy headlines:

6. UPDATES ON FBI TRUMP RAID: The FBI reportedly seized 11,179 photographs and documents without classification markings from Mar-a-Lago and 103 documents marked classified. Former Attorney General William Barr further revealed his Deep State colors, declaring it “highly improbable” that Trump had declassified documents found with classification markings. Barr also said he thought appointing a special master to oversee the handling of the documents was unnecessary.

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz believes the Department of Justice will attempt to charge Trump with obstruction of justice. “The only possible case that they could consider making against [Trump]…it’s not going to be mishandling of classified information—it would be the Nixon crime: obstruction of justice.”

Ed. Note: As noted in last week’s Behind the Scenes video, “It’s not just Trump they’re after; they’re after you.” For more, see last week’s episode and FBI Raids Trump’s Home: The Mask Comes Off.

7. DEMS TIE RESPECT OF MARRIAGE ACT TO SPENDING BILL: Senate Democrats are attempting to pass the radical “(Dis)Respect of Marriage Act,” an open assault on family, morality, and religious liberty that goes even further than the disastrous 2015 Obergefell decision. Travis Weber of the Family Research Council said, “We need the federal government to pass funding authorizations by the end of September.” But codifying same-sex marriage is “still obviously unacceptable, whether a standalone vote or attached to funding bills.” The measure likely needs 60 votes to pass.

Ed. Note: For more information and to call your Senator, see this week’s Prayer and Action section. Some Senators have already changed their minds after hearing from grassroots activists. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI.), who originally said, “I see no reason to oppose” the bill, recently declared, “I wouldn’t vote for it because of all the issues raised about religious liberty.”

8. NEW WEF VIDEO: CAN THE ECONOMY GROW FOREVER? A new video from the World Economic Forum and TedEd floats the idea of shutting down specific industries and going “post growth” to “save the planet.” Part of the video states, “Some economists think the solution is to reengineer our economies completely. They make the case that what we should really be doing is weaning ourselves from the addiction to growth and shifting to a post-growth economy.” Rather than growing, the video recommends focusing on what we “really need…things like renewable energy, healthcare, and public transportation. To do that, economists think that rich countries should do something like guarantee living wages.”

“Could we really do away with entire industries?” asks the WEF. The video proposes using AI to decide which industries to eliminate.

9. DISNEY RELEASES “LITTLE DEMON”: Disney’s FX is releasing a blasphemous adult cartoon series entitled, “Little Demon,” telling the story of a woman who has a child with the devil. The Washington Stand warns that the series includes “Satanic symbols, witchcraft, demonic activity, nudity, and violence.”

Congressman Mike Johnson (R-LA.) responded, “The shocking ending to the LSU opener was not the most disturbing part of the game last night. For me, that came during a commercial break in the second quarter when the television audience was presented with the trailer for a new FX cartoon. I couldn’t get to the remote fast enough to shield my 11-year-old from the preview, and I wonder how many other children were exposed to it — and how many millions more will tune in to the new series, owned and marketed by Disney. The trailer included dark images of Hell, demons, satanic imagery, and an explanation that the main character is — the Antichrist.”

Johnson, himself a father of four children, continued, “Please be careful. Our job as parents is to guard the hearts and minds of our kids. This culture has become alarmingly dark and desensitized, and this is not a game. Disney and FX have decided to embrace and market what is clearly evil. Stay far from it.”

Ed. Note: Whatever it once was or claimed to be, today’s Disney has fully revealed itself to be the enemy of God, family, and morality. Parents must vigilantly guard their children against being defiled by Disney and the corruption of social media, Hollywood, and technology.

10. LIZ TRUSS BECOMES NEW BRITISH PRIME MINISTER: Liz Truss was selected by Conservative Party members to become the new Prime Minister of the U.K., following the resignation of scandal-ridden Boris Johnson. In her victory statement, Truss promised, “I campaigned as a Conservative, and I will govern as a Conservative…I will deliver a bold plan to cut taxes and grow our economy.”

Ed. Note: Boris Johnson also ran as a conservative, but he governed as a liberal. Regardless of how “conservative” she may have been, Liz Truss likely had to agree not to go against the U.K.’s Deep State system before she could gain the support of the party. To quote one analyst, “We should think of her as a puppet PM.”

11. QUEEN ELIZABETH DIES: Queen Elizabeth II died at her Scottish home Balmoral at the age of 96, ending the longest-ever reign of a British monarch, 70 years. In 2000, the Queen said of Jesus Christ, “In his early thirties, He was arrested, tortured, and crucified with two criminals. His death might have been the end of the story, but then came the resurrection and with it the foundation of the Christian faith.”

12. CALIFORNIA CONTINUES TO SELF-DESTRUCT: California continues to lead the nation in promoting Marxism for its citizens. California could soon become a sanctuary state for “transgender youth,” following “gender-affirming health care” legislation by state Democrats. A new bill signed by Governor Gavin Newsom could lead to a $22 per hour minimum wage for fast food restaurants.

13. GOOGLE PLAY CENSORS “HEALTH MISINFORMATION”: Android’s Google Play has introduced a “health misinformation” policy to ban “misleading health claims that contradict existing medical consensus, or can cause harm to users.” The rules outlaw “misleading claims about vaccines, such as that vaccines can alter one’s DNA…advocacy of harmful, unapproved treatments, [and] advocacy of other harmful health practices, such as conversion therapy.”

In related news, MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan said that media outlets should forget about covering both sides: “There are two words we need to remove from our media vocabulary right now, and that is ‘both sides’. This fundamental crutch, this reliance on ‘both sides’ as a kind of lazy way of covering our political moment, is deeply dangerous.”

14. FINANCIAL CENSORSHIP: Canada’s Scotiabank terminated a customer who complained about the presence of a rainbow flag on its banking app. New York Governor Kathy Hochul openly called on credit card companies to flag gun purchases: “Everyone needs to do their part to combat gun violence. @AmericanExpress, @Mastercard& @Visa should categorize firearm purchases & flag suspicious activity – just like they do for millions of other transactions. Together we can help stop gun trafficking & keep New Yorkers safe.”

15. NOTEWORTHY STORIES:

  • The Dutch city of Harlem will ban most ads for meat by 2024, allegedly to combat climate change.
  • 81% of New Zealanders are worried about climate change.
  • 22% of Democrats believe that “Some men can get pregnant.”
  • Dr. Joseph Mercola writes, “Scientists in the U.S. and Canada have resurrected the Spanish flu virus through reverse genetics. Not surprisingly, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) are involved.”
  • NBC reports, “Black Lives Matter Grassroots is suing an executive of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (GNF) for allegedly stealing $10 million in donations.”
  • Newsmax reports, “Iran plans to execute LGBTQ activists as President Joe Biden seeks a new nuclear deal with the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.”
  • From The Washington Times: “Charging electric vehicles in Britain soon will be more expensive than filling up gasoline-powered cars thanks to soaring electricity costs.”
  • A New Mexico judge barred Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin from holding or seeking public office for engaging in “insurrection” on the Capitol grounds on January 6, 2021.
  • Biden has tapped swamp insider John Podesta to allocate $370 billion in funding from the “Inflation Reduction Act.” Podesta previously said, “The transformation of the energy economy is going to be the biggest thing economically that is happening in this country.”
  • Hillary Clinton said that Biden “did a very important service to the country” by calling MAGA Republicans “semi-fascist.”

THE FREEDOM AGENDA

1. JUDGE ORDERS FAUCI, BIDEN OFFICIALS TO HAND OVER COMMUNICATIONS: Trump-appointed U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty ruled that Dr. Anthony Fauci, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, and other top Biden officials have 21 days to hand over their communication records with social media companies. Jenin Younes of New Civil Liberties Alliance responded, “It is time for Dr. Fauci to answer for his flagrant disregard for Americans’ constitutional rights and civil liberties.”

2. JUDGE ORDERS SPECIAL MASTER TO OVERSEE DOCUMENTS SEIZED BY FBI IN TRUMP RAID: Judge Aileen M. Cannon ordered a special master be appointed to “review the seized property, manage assertions of privilege and make recommendations thereon, and evaluate claims for return of property.” Former FBI head Kevin Brock believes the entire search warrant could be thrown out in court: “There’s concern that the search warrant itself was overly broad from the get-go. Because the scope that they were looking for was every single document generated during the Trump administration — that just seems too inexcusably overbroad. Now there are indications that they (the FBI) collected much more than they were authorized to collect.”

3. DESANTIS CALLS OUT BIDEN’S SPEECH: In an interview with Fox News, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said, “[Biden’s speech] Was one of the most disgusting speeches an American president has ever given. He ran as being a unifier, and he’s basically saying to the vast majority of the country that disapproves of him, that they’re effectively a threat to the republic. He dodders, he lashes out. But at the end of the day, his policies are why there’s so much opposition to him. He came in and he opened the border, and we’ve seen what a disaster that’s been. He kneecapped American energy. We’ve seen how that’s hurt millions and millions of people across our country. They’ve inflated the currency. We have one of the worst inflations we’ve had in over 40 years. So of course, people are going to be upset at all the wreckage that he’s left in his wake. He is the American Nero. He’s a failed leader.”

Ed. Note: In a time when many Republicans seem overly concerned about playing “politics as usual” with the Marxist left, it’s refreshing to hear voices like DeSantis expose the DNC’s evil for what it is.

4. INDIAN FATHER SUES BILL GATES OVER DAUGHTER’S DEATH: Dilip Lunawat of India filed a lawsuit against Bill Gates and the Indian government, claiming it was the Covid vaccine that took his daughter’s life. Lunawat’s 33-year-old daughter, “who was a doctor and Senior lecturer at SMBT Dental College & Hospital,” died days after receiving the Covid vaccine, per her college’s vaccine mandate. The authorities promised that the vaccines were “110% safe.”

5. DUTCH AGRICULTURAL MINISTER RESIGNS: Slay News reports, “The Netherlands’ agricultural minister Henk Staghouwer has been forced to resign following widespread protests from Dutch farmers over his radical climate agenda that seeks to destroy their livelihoods. Staghouwer was leading the Dutch agriculture ministry’s climate policy that involved confiscating farms in a forced government buy-out scheme.”

6. 30% OF AMERICANS SUCCESSFULLY RESISTED VACCINE PROPAGANDA: The Economist/YouGov poll found that 29% of Americans said that they had not received any Covid-19 vaccine. 39% of Independents, 35% of Republicans, and only 14% of Democrats did not get the jab.

7. BIDEN’S SPEECH UPSET CRITICAL INDEPENDENT VOTERS: A poll from Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group found that 62.4% of independents said Biden’s speech is “a dangerous escalation in rhetoric and is designed to incite conflict amongst Americans.” 91% of Republicans and only 19% of Democrats said the same.

8. RUMBLE REACHES 78 MILLION ACTIVE MONTHLY USERS: Rumble Corp reports, “Rumble, the video-sharing platform, announced that its user base reached a new record in August, increasing its global monthly active users (MAUs) to 78 million, representing 77% year over year growth…A substantial portion of this growth came from users in the 18- to 24-year-old ‘Gen Z’ age group.

Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski said. “When you look at the data, and especially our 63 million MAUs in the U.S. and Canada, it is clear to me that Rumble’s growth is one of the reasons that Big Tech platforms have stagnated. In recent years, our user growth came primarily from consumers of news and political content. As new content creators come to Rumble, we are seeing growth from the Gen Z demographic, a massive new audience for our platform.”

HYMN OF THE WEEK

In Tenderness He Sought Me by W. Spencer Walton

In tenderness He sought me, weary and sick with sin,
And, on His shoulders, brought me into His flock again!
While angels in His presence sang, until the courts of heaven rang:

Oh, the love that sought me! Oh, the blood that bought me!
Oh, the grace that brought me to the fold,
Wondrous grace that brought me to the fold!

He washed the bleeding sin-wounds, and poured in oil and wine;
He whispered to assure me, “I’ve found thee, thou art Mine!”
I never heard a sweeter voice, it made my aching heart rejoice:

Oh, the love that sought me! Oh, the blood that bought me!
Oh, the grace that brought me to the fold,
Wondrous grace that brought me to the fold!

He pointed to the nail-prints; for me His blood was shed.
A mocking crown so thorny was placed upon His head;
I wondered what He saw in me, to suffer such deep agony?

Oh, the love that sought me! Oh, the blood that bought me!
Oh, the grace that brought me to the fold,
Wondrous grace that brought me to the fold!

I’m sitting in His presence, the sunshine of His face,
While with adoring wonder, His blessings I retrace.
It seems as if eternal days are far too short to sound His praise:

Oh, the love that sought me! Oh, the blood that bought me!
Oh, the grace that brought me to the fold,
Wondrous grace that brought me to the fold!
