WARNING ORDER: China Prepares for Conflict and Why We Must Do the Same
by KEVIN D. FREEMAN on JUNE 22, 2016
I was honored to join a select group of experts warning America about developing Chinese threats. My section deals with the economic threats and includes a section on the overwhelming intellectual property theft that has taken place over the past couple of decades. Some estimates suggest that up to $5 trillion per year has been stolen from our economy. That is almost unfathomable. If those figures are even close to correct, our economy has been seriously shortchanged with our GDP growth rate cut sharply. If we had an extra $5 trillion per year, even ignoring the lost compounding potential, our economy would be almost a third larger. Wonder where Middle Class gains have gone? Here is an answer.
Now, we shouldn’t forget where this China issue began. It started 20 years ago with about $3 million in illicit contributions to the DNC in a massive scandal for the Clinton Administration as explained in this Senate Report. It seems the DNC got $3 million and America lost $5 trillion…per year. Looks like a pretty good investment. Interestingly, the Chinese man at the center of the scandal, Little Rock restaurateur Charlie Trie, was arrested last year by the FBI for some strange doings with large amounts of cash (some $4.5 million brought into the United States). It is important to note that China’s economy didn’t really take off until America opened up the spigots and that coincided with the donations to American politicians. This isn’t some “right-wing” conspiracy. The truth was reported by all major news outlets at he time including left-leaning ones. The intent to buy influence was clear and it clearly proved effective despite the indictments handed down.
Add to that the intense Unrestricted Warfare focus of the PLA and it becomes clear how China could grow so rapidly as America languished. Sure there are a lot of problems in China and smoke and mirrors at work. But the truth is that their economy has grown much more rapidly than has ours and IP theft is one of the reasons. Of course, there is also currency manipulation and all-out economic warfare as explained in my chapter of Warning Order. And that is just ONE chapter in an incredible book written by top experts.
This is the release about the book from the publisher:

TOP EXPERTS WARN THAT CHINA IS PREPARING FOR CONFLICT,RECOMMEND THAT AMERICA MUST DO THE SAME(Washington, DC): Ever since Richard Nixon opened relations with Communist China, Chinese intentions have been a matter of incessant and often fevered speculation in this country. In particular, national security and regional experts, non-governmental organizations and office-holders alike have endlessly debated whether the People’s Republic of China could be brought into a U.S.-dominated international order and world economy in a manner consistent with American interests.
We now know the answer to this question. Veteran national security journalist Bill Gertz, in a 13 May 2016 Washington Free Beacon article, described a new Pentagon report that concluded China’s military underwent a major restructuring last year. What is particularly alarming was the report’s conclusion that the purpose of that Chinese reorganization is to prepare for war. According to Mr. Gertz, it is meant to enable the PRC to execute updated strategies to conduct regional and cyber warfare, to seize control of the South China Sea, to dominate space and to expand the Chinese military’s capability to operate far from Chinese territory.
Admiral James “Ace” Lyons introduces the themes of the new book.
Earlier this spring, the Center for Security Policy asked some of America’s most thoughtful national security professionals and “China hands” to examine the state and implications of such Chinese preparations. The result is a collection of their essays entitled, Warning Order: China Prepares for Conflict and Why We Must Do the Same. They document how, under successive regimes in Beijing – and most especially that of the PRC’s incumbent ruler, Xi Jinping – the Chinese have relentlessly striven to put themselves in a position to challenge, and ultimately to displace, the post-World War II Pax Americana with a new order. The unmistakable objective of the Communist Chinese is to return their nation to what has long been considered its rightful place as the Middle Kingdom, the preeminent global power, strategically and economically.Google ChromeScreenSnapz001
In addition to Bill Gertz, the other contributors to Warning Order are: Gordon Chang, Dean Cheng, Fred Fleitz, Kevin Freeman, Admiral Ace Lyons, Dr. Peter Navarro, Lindsey Neas and Senator . Center President Frank Gaffney provides a foreword. The authors’ clear-eyed and well-documented assessments, that draw upon their various perspectives and fields of expertise, expose a reality that can no longer be safely ignored: China is putting itself in a position to engage in conflict with the United States across a broad front and potentially with decisively devastating results. This prospect has been exacerbated by huge defense budget and force structure cuts under the Obama administration.
On the occasion of the publication of this newest product of the Center for Security Policy Press, Frank Gaffney remarked: “Warning Order could not be more timely. Its extraordinary contributors have rendered a real public service by putting policymakers and the public on notice about Chinese ambitions and preparations for conflict. In so doing, they make it abundantly clear that America must make a dramatic policy course-correction – or face the dire strategic, economic and security repercussions of its possibly violent displacement as the dominant power in the Pacific and an indispensable, stabilizing factor in East Asia.”
Warning Order is available for purchase in Kindle and paperback format at Amazon.com. It also can be read online for free as a PDF or downloaded.

A Conversation about America’s Future with Donald Trump and Ben Carson
Marriott Marquis, New York
June 21, 2016
Culturefaith.com – a weekly study of “sage cons” about what Christian conservatives are thinking.
Mike.email@example.com information on the investigation into selling baby parts.
Ben Carson – my main goal was to become middle class. (born in poverty) Mentioned that Hillary Clinton was on a first name basis with Saul Alinsky, who in his book Rules for Radicals mentioned Lucifer in his acknowledgements for inspiration as one who “built his own kingdom.” BC said everyone should read that book just to know what we are up against.
Franklin Graham (who is also a pilot) has been speaking on every state capital, and pulled permits for 500 people not knowing who might show up. He said, thousands and thousands have been attenting gathering for prayer. “We’re all guilty of sin, forgiven by God’s grace.”
Jerry Falwell Jr. (introduced by Mike Huckabee, who, there to moderate the conversation, remembered Reagan at a similar gathering where he acknowledged, “I know because of the rules that you can’t endorse me, but I want you to know that I endorse you, and I am grateful for what you stand for.”) Said his dad had a dream of being interviewd by Chealsea Clinton, and told her there are three evils confronting America: Osama, Obama, and Yo momma.
Mike Huckabee, moderator, saw evidence that Trump was real that few other people got to see. It was in the Green rooms of the debates. He said it was striking to see the relationship with Trump and his family. Asked Trump the secret of having such a close relationship with his children. Trump thanked him for the question, and said all five of his kids are very smart, get lots of compliments, and that he always told them, “no drugs, no alcohol, and no cigarettes.” Mentioned the importance of going to church and Sunday School, especially when he was growing up going to a Presbyterian church in Jamaica, which is part of the Queens burrough. Said if they go to church it would be a tremendous advantage.
Then Trump mentioned something that really impressed me. He said government has gotten involved in your religion. Mentioned the LBJ amendment threatening pastors with loss of tax-exempt status, a blatant infringement of free speech, which causes fear of government in the pulpit and the pew. He (Trump) said, “we’re going to get rid of that.”
Dr. James Dobson, said of all the questions that were prepared (over 50,000 submitted), the #1 issue was related to religious liberty. He said that the bill of rights mentioned this first for a reason. B. Obama changed freedom of religion to “freedom of worship” which is a subtle way of saying keep your worship to yourself, and keep religion out of the public square (limits religion from public influence).
Trump – we have already vetted 11 names of pro-life supremes, representative of the people that we would pick for that office. Ready to name 4 more. Plans to overturn the Johnson amendment, so that everyone can say what they want, including pastors. He said right now people walking down 5th avenue have more freedom of speech than pastors, and “we’re going to fix that.” Also promised that we would all be saying Merry Christmas again, and that coaches would once again be allowed to pray with their athletes before going out to play a game. He also mentioned getting in a lot of trouble for saying these things – the press has been brutal.
Ronnie Floyd – the media frames evangelicals as a voting block, but to us it means more. It means we take the Bible to heart, and take the gospel to the ends of the earth. Barack Obama is the first black president, which we should celebrate as a civil rights milestone, and yet since he got in office, the nation is much more divided racially. If you’re elected what will you do to address poverty and crime in urban areas, and to heal racial division?
Trump: Big word, which doesn’t completely answer the question: Jobs. Police force maligned, they don’t show on tv the good work police are doing. No spirit in the inner cities. No training, no spirit, no hope. Phony employment number of 5% is a total lie. This is because if you completely give up on finding work, you’re not counted anymore. The actually unemployment rate is more like 20%. Part of the problem is Obamacare. Blue Cross just announced a 60% increase in Texas. And the deductibles are so high that unless you are dying a slow and horrible death, you will never get to use your insurance. One of the toughest problems we have is the inner city.
Huckabee – your rallies give people hope.
David Jeremiah – Just returned from Israel. Israel feels abandoned by the US. Our status as a nation depends on our relation to Israel. He who blessed you I will bless and the one who curses you I will curse. Trump: 100% for Israel. Amazing country. The Iran deal is the worst I’ve ever seen. Not to mention the 150 million we gave them in cash. Should have doubled the sanctions until the prisoners were released, and then told them, sorry, we don’t have the money, we’re 19 trillion in debt. Sounds like a deal maker! Doesn’t understand why so many Jewish friends support Obama. Bebe Netanyahu not one of them. Obama must not like Israel too much. Iran now a major power, taking over Iraq, taking the oil. We have stupid people running this country. We will bring this country back and fast. America used to always win, until viet nam, and now America always loses.
Sammy Rodriguez – Latino evangelicals. (need to look him up for fiesta of life) We are pro life, pro religious liberty, and we know we must stop illegal immigration and we’re not for amnesty. We like the truth of Dr. Billy Graham and the justice of Dr. Martin Luther King, and we put a little salsa on top. But with all the talk of building a wall, could we also talk about building a bridge to the Hispanic community?
Trump: we have a country with no borders. If you don’t have borders, you don’t have a country. 16,500 endorsements from border patrol agents. The wall construction is not that difficult. China built their great wall 2,000 years ago without heavy equipment. The wall is important. You have drugs coming in, heroine epidemic in New Hapshire. We will stop it. We’re living in a dangerous world. Syrian refugees, and we don’t know these people. We have to make adjustments. We will bring our military back to full strength.
Ralph Reed – 24-25% of the vote will be evangelical Christians. In the Macro Political environment, the job approval of the incumbent is a key indicator, the most important single number. Gave examples of the power of this in previous elections, including McCain working against the 26% approval of GWB. Another important marker, is the “are we on the right track?” numbers. 7 million evangelical votes were left on the table in the last election in a race won by five million votes.
Ken Blackwell – three books my mother wanted me to pay attention to: my datebook, which told me how I was using my time, my checkbook, which told me how I was using my financial resources, and my Bible.
Jim Garlow – pastors are not silent because they fear the IRS, but because they fear upsetting a church member who may leave and take their tithe with them.
Mark Gonzalez of the Hispanic Action Network – another guy to talk to about FoH
Eric Metaxas – we’re here to be a blessing to the world. Golden triangle of freedom. To have freedom, you have to have virtue, to have virtue you have to have faith, to have faith you have to have freedom. That’s why religious freedom is so key. Without it this is not America. We’re a Christian nation today because we’re never been an official Christian nation.
My vote is for Trump
by Bob Williamson
This morning I saw the press account on the Donald Trump event in NYC that I attended yesterday and it only further confirmed how they distort the truth. Over 1000 leaders attended what was originally going to amount to a couple of hundred people.
About every evangelical and faith based social conservative leader in the country attended, including Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell’s son, James Dobson, Gary Bauer, Sammy Rodriguez, James Robison, Ralph Reed, E.W. Jackson, Mike Huckabee, and so on. Mega pastors were there and even some smaller church leaders. Together they represented millions of evangelical voters.
I was very fortunate to be seated in the VIP section right in the middle on the “50 yard line”. I was very impressed with Mr. Trump; he was as humble as I’ve ever seen him and he spoke intelligently and articulately to the issues. It is amazing how different one’s perspective of him is when he sits down for several hours and calmly explains his positions as opposed to the picture the press and others paint of him, or snapshots of him being attacked and reacting.
He is not anything like the person the press makes him out to be.
The state of the press is disconcerting to say the least. I was talking to my good friend former majority leader in the House Tom Delay about it at the meeting. His life was ruined by the press and he has seen it first-hand. He told me that at some point they are going to have to be held accountable for the lies they produce.
I told him not to hold his breath and personally I don’t see that happening. The reality is that people see stuff on the news and they believe it. The press hates Republicans and conservatives and they particularly hate Donald Trump. They distort everything he says and pump out a steady dose of vitriol daily and those who watch it believe it.
I believe that the media combined with Arts and entertainment are the most powerful tools in Satan’s arsenal. The vast majority of our population has been brainwashed and the press, like the Pied Piper, is leading the way to the death of this nation.
Unfortunately I did not get an opportunity to sit one on one with the Donald. He was swamped and met with bigger fish in the pond. Security was extremely tight and the secret service delayed the event numerous times due to threats. Homosexuals were demonstrating outside because he was meeting with conservative Christians, and later in the day some idiot tried to assassinate him in Las Vegas. He must really love his country to subject himself to all of this.
Franklin Graham spoke to the issue of Trump not leading a stellar life free from sin. He mentioned Abraham telling a lie, Moses disobeying God, David committing adultery and murder, the disciples denying Jesus with Peter denying Him three times, and he said that he, Franklin Graham was a sinner, He then said we are no different than Donald Trump or any other human being. We all sin and only Jesus Christ was perfect.
One of my friends who ran the PAC for Ted Cruz was not enamored by Trump and was not complimentary of his past life. I told him that God forgives sin and people change. I changed and so can “The Donald”.
I hope that you not only vote for Trump but try to influence others to do the same. If Hillary gets elected, her 3-5 Supreme Court Justice nominees will all but assure that abortion will be the norm, religious liberty will be well on its way out, along with gun ownership.
We can count on the press to applaud her every move. It reminds me of their father . . .
“You will not die said the serpent.”
