‘I Didn’t Join the Military to Fight for Taiwan’

Dan McKnight, founder and chairman of DefendTheGuard.US, is a 13-year veteran of the military. He served in the United States Marine Corps, United States Army and the Idaho Army National Guard. His article draws attention to the fact that the bipartisan ‘War Party’ has been dictating U.S. foreign policy for the last seventy years, using our soldiers as cannon fodder in endless wars. He advocates for non-intervention, bringing our soldiers home, protecting and defending the Constitution, the American People, our liberties, economy and our borders. -JD


‘I Didn’t Join the Military to Fight for Taiwan’

September 22, 2022 | By Dan McKnight | The Libertarian Institute |

Are you ready to go to war to “protect” a place, thousands of miles away from our nation, which we have no treaty alliance with and no overriding national interest?

I’m not talking about Ukraine, even though we continue to pump that country full of billions of dollars in weapons and supplies in a proxy war against Russia.

I’m talking about Taiwan, located off the coast of China in the Pacific Ocean.

Joe Biden just promised to defend it with the full military might of the United States.

When I joined the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, and later the Idaho Army National Guard, I signed up to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution and our Bill of Rights—not Taipei.

Here’s the story.

After the Chinese Civil War ended in 1949, and Chairman Mao consolidated the rule of the Communist Party in Beijing, a small collection of anti-communists flew the coop and established themselves on the island of Formosa, about 100 miles from the mainland.

That’s where they’ve been ever since, developing from a military dictatorship to a parliamentary democracy with two major parties. One wants closer integration with Beijing, the other wants full independence.

Both Taipei and Beijing claim to be the legitimate government of all of China.

In the 1970s, our government normalized relations with the Chinese mainland, and de-recognized the “Republic of China” in Taiwan, severing diplomatic relations and abrogating a defense pact.

For over 40 years since then our foreign policy has been guided by “strategic ambiguity.” We recognize there is “One China,” but that there’s some creases we’d like to see ironed out peacefully and without violence.

That’s why Nancy Pelosi’s visit last month to the island was so explosive. It was a high-level American leader playing recklessly with our diplomacy for the cameras.

Now on Sunday, when 60 Minutes asked President Biden, “…to be clear, sir, U.S. forces, U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion?”

“Yes,” he answered.

You don’t get any clearer than that.

The administration has attempted to walk back the statement, and claims there’s been no change to “strategic ambiguity.” This is the third or fourth time the White House communications department has had to “correct” the commander in chief about our relationship with Taiwan.

So who’s actually guiding policy in our country? It’s not Joe Biden and his rapidly decking cognitive abilities.

It’s the War Party, the same group that’s been dictating U.S. foreign policy for over seventy years.

That includes Republicans like Mitt Romney too. That carpetbagger just voted for a new bill slithering through Congress called the “Taiwan Policy Act,” which among other things will give the island $6,500,000,000 in military aid.

“We’re doing something that’s highly provocative and bellicose,” Romney said, not to disparage but to praise the legislation.

Then there’s Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, as faux conservative as they come.

She says the American people have to fight for Taiwan and Ukraine on behalf of “international democracy.”

You know what I call that? Globalism.

Our soldiers are not cannon fodder for these imperial, one-world government schemes.

They’re patriotic men and women who committed their lives to protect and defend our liberties and our borders.

I say let the Chinese, on the mainland and on Formosa, work out their own problems in their own neighborhood while we Americans focus on building the strongest and freest economy in the world. That’s America First.

But I’m not in charge.

Left to their own devices, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Mitt Romney, and Marsha Blackburn will start World War III and try to fight Russia and China at the same time. They’ll destroy our country and leave us to pick through the rubble.

That’s why you need to stop them.

I’ve built the infrastructure. I’ve gathered the team. We’re ready to crush the War Party and put a stop to their globalist fantasies.

But if I go it alone, I’m going to lose.

Visit DefendTheGuard.US to learn how you can get involved in the movement to empower states to reassert their authority under the Constitution, and force Congress and the rest of the federal government to end our endless wars abroad. And go to TenSevenClub.com to join our supporters’ group with a financial contribution towards our efforts in all fifty states.

Together, I’d dare any Lockheed Martin-backed stooge to mess with us.

FLASHBACK 2020 OPERATION BLACKOUT: Government Election-Hacking Exercise

Image Source

Regardless of where we stand on the political spectrum, election integrity is everyone’s business. Without honest and fair elections, our Constitutional Republic is unable to function properly.

Election integrity is not a new problem. In American Blackout, 2008 Green Party Presidential Candidate, Dr. Cynthia McKinney described stolen elections of 2000 and 2004. Black voters were found to be systematically disenfranchised. Diebold voting machines were found to be easily hacked.

What is clear, is that it doesn’t matter who votes.

What matters is who is counting the votes.

 

In addition to the need for meaningful public oversight to ensure voting integrity, is the need to get military intelligence, alphabet agencies and the federal government out of our elections. 

 

Did you know about OPERATION BLACKOUT The TIP Exercises?

 

Operation Blackout was a 2019 election-disruption simulation exercise with participants from the Department of Homeland Security, the US Secret Service, the FBI, and  D.C. law firm, Venable.

 

The exercise was organized by government software provider Cybereason, a cybersecurity firm founded by former members of Israeli military intelligence cyber division Unit 8200. The firm is advised by former and current officials of the CIA and Israeli military intelligence. 

 

[**Remember former CIA director Mike Pompeo described how the agency lies, cheats, and steals].

The Transition Integrity Project (TIP) Exercise was another military-style war gaming  series of events held in 2019, simulating disrupted election scenarios which I spoke about in October 2020.

 

It’s more critical than ever that voters are involved in the election process and work together to ensure honest and fair elections moving forward.  JD

“The fact that we are handing over the keys of American democracy to the military-industrial complex — it’s like giving the keys to the henhouse to a fox and saying, ‘here come in and take whatever you want.’ It’s obviously dangerous.” — Investigative journalist Yasha Levine

May 24, 2019 | By Whitney Webb | Mint Press News

“Earlier this month, tech giant Microsoft announced its solution to “protect” American elections from interference, which it has named “ElectionGuard.” The election technology is already set to be adopted by half of voting machine manufacturers and some state governments for the 2020 general election. Though it has been heavily promoted by the mainstream media in recent weeks, none of those reports have disclosed that ElectionGuard has several glaring conflicts of interest that greatly undermine its claim aimed at protecting U.S. democracy.

In this investigation, MintPress will reveal how ElectionGuard was developed by companies with deep ties to the U.S. defense and intelligence communities and Israeli military intelligence, as well as the fact that it is far from clear that the technology would prevent foreign or domestic interference with, or the manipulation of, vote totals or other aspects of American election systems.

Election forensics analyst and author Jonathan Simon as well as investigative journalist Yasha Levine, who has written extensively on how the military has long sought to weaponize public technologies including the internet, were consulted for their views on ElectionGuard, its connections to the military-industrial complex and the implication of those connections for American democracy as part of this investigation.

In January, MintPress published an exposé that later went viral on a news-rating company known as Newsguard. Officially aimed at fighting “fake news,” the company’s many connections to U.S. intelligence, a top neoconservative think tank, and self-admitted government propagandists revealed its real intention was to promote corporate media over independent alternatives.

Newsguard was among the first initiatives that comprise Microsoft’s “Defending Democracy” program, a program that the tech giant created under the auspices of protecting American “democratic processes from cyber-enabled interference [which] have become a critical concern.” Through its partnership with Microsoft, Newsguard has been installed in public libraries and universities throughout the country, even while private-sector companies have continued to avoid adopting the problematic browser plug-in.

Now, Microsoft is promoting a new “Defending Democracy” initiative — one equally ridden with glaring conflicts of interest — that threatens American democracy in ways Newsguard never could. ElectionGuard is touted by Microsoft as a system that aims to “make voting secure, more accessible, and more efficient anywhere it’s used in the United States or in democratic nations around the world.” It has since been heavily promoted by mainstream and U.S. government-funded media outlets in preparation for its use in the 2020 general election.

However, according to Jonathan Simon, election forensic analyst and author of CODE RED: Computerized Elections and the War on American Democracy, this public relations campaign is likely just cover for more insider control over U.S. elections. “It’s encouraging that after close to two decades of ignoring the security issues with computerized voting, there’s suddenly a scramble to protect our next election that suggests those issues are finally being taken seriously,” Simon told MintPress. “Unfortunately the proposed solution is just more computerization and complexity — which translates to more control by experts and insiders, though of course that is not part of the PR campaign.”

As to the likely identity of those insiders, the fact that Microsoft’s ElectionGuard was developed in tandem with a private military and intelligence contractor whose only investor is the U.S. Department of Defense offers a troubling clue. As a consequence, ElectionGuard’s promise to “secure” elections is dubious, especially given that Microsoft itself is a U.S. military contractor. Furthermore, amid the unfolding scandal of Israeli meddling in foreign elections, Microsoft’s growing ties to Israeli military intelligence and private Israeli cybersecurity firms raise even more concerns about whether ElectionGuard’s real purpose is to “secure” American elections for candidates friendly to the establishment, especially the military-industrial complex.”

27 Texas counties declare invasion at southern border

The Biden administration is failing to protect our southern border while prioritizing the national security of Ukraine.

Texas Judges and commissioners from Atascosa, Chambers, Clay, Edwards, Ellis, Goliad, Hardin, Hood, Hunt, Jack, Jasper, Johnson, Kinney, Liberty, Live Oak, Madison, Montague, Orange, Parker, Presidio, Terrell, Throckmorton, Tyler, Van Zandt, Wichita, Wilson, and Wise, have signed resolutions in support of declaring an invasion in those counties.

In addition to securing the border, Governors of Texas, Florida and Arizona (Abbott, DeSantis, Grisham, and Ducey) must immediately stop bussing people into American cities who have not been properly screened and/or gone through the lawful process of entering the USA. Arrangements could just as easily be made for safe return to nations of origin. These reckless actions by governors only serve to further undermine USA national security. -JD

 


 

Five more Texas counties declare invasion at southern border, bringing total to 27

(The Center Square) – The judges and commissioners of five more Texas counties have declared an invasion at the southern border, bringing the total to 27.

Clay, Jack, Hood, Hunt and Montague counties are the latest to declare an invasion.

The judge and commissioners of Clay and Montague counties signed similar resolutions “calling for additional measures to secure the border, stop the invasion at the border, and protect our communities.” They expressed support for Gov. Greg Abbott’s border security mission, Operation Lone Star, and called on him to expand operational authorities available under Article 1, Section 10 of the U.S. Constitution and Article IV, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution.

The judge and commissioners of Jack County signed a declaration of disaster, which also calls “for additional measures to secure the border, stop the invasion at the border and protect our communities.” It cites cartels “exploiting the unsecure border for their own power and profit to the detriment of Texas communities.” The cartels act as “paramilitary, narco-terrorist organizations that profit from trafficking people and drugs.” They also have “operational control over the unsecured U.S./Mexico border and throughout Texas, resulting in known human and drug smuggling cases going through and directly impacting Jack County and all of Texas.”

The resolution also cites Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution and Article IV, Section 7 of the Texas Constitution, which states that the governor has the “power to call forth the militia to execute the laws of the state, to suppress insurrections, and to repel invasions.”

The judge and commissioners of Hood County signed a “petition to Texas Governor Greg Abbott to declare invasion at southern border” on Sept. 13. Because of the criminal acts “spearheaded by violent international drug cartels who have paramilitary operational control over our unsecured Texas/U.S./Mexico border,” the resolution states the citizens of Hood County are “under the imminent threat of a disaster resulting from the unprecedented levels of human trafficking, violence and drug smuggling coming across the U.S./Texas border from Mexico, including hostile military or paramilitary action, causing or potentially causing severe damage, injury and/or loss of life or property.”

Hunt County Judge Bobby Stovall signed a disaster declaration Sept. 13 stating the “health, safety and welfare of Hunt County residents are under an imminent threat of disaster from the unprecedented levels of illegal immigration, human trafficking, and drug smuggling across the U.S. border from Mexico. Since January 2021, more than 3.2 million illegal aliens have been apprehended after unlawfully entering the United States. More than 800,000 illegal aliens have avoided apprehension while unlawfully entering the United States and remain unaccounted for within our nation. So far this year, CBP has identified more than 50 known terrorists who have unlawfully entered the United States through our unsecured border with Mexico.”
