President Trump Signs The “Legion Act” – 
6 Million Americans Are Going 
To Receive New Benefits
By Adam Casalino } ~ Every day, Trump scores more and more wins for the American people—but the mainstream media refuses to cover most of them... I guess they’re busy propping up candidates like loose lips liar-Joe Biden or Elizabeth dinky-Warren. I guess real news is too much for them these days. President Trump has a special place in his heart for our troops. Especially our veterans, those men and women who risked it all to keep us free. He’s already scored major wins for veterans with landmark legislation. And now he just signed a bill that will help 6 million Americans in need. “President @realDonaldTrump has signed the LEGION Act, allowing the @AmericanLegion to extend benefits to 6 million additional veterans!” Wow. According to the White House on Twitter, President Trump has just signed the LEGION Act which will extend the benefits of the American Legion to 6 million additional veterans. Specifically, the bill will extend eligibility for The American Legion to more veterans. This new law will extend eligibility to any honorably discharged veteran who has served between officially recognized times of war. Before this, those who fought during conflicts not deemed “war” by Congress could not join the Legion. They faced the same kind of danger, risked their lives, suffered through much. But were denied benefits and programs because of what was essentially a technicality. Now, all veterans since WWII forward will be able to join. That means many more Americans can have access to care and support. Many of them for the first time since they served. This is yet another example of how President Trump is working to support our veterans...
China Agrees to Restart Trade Talks 
as White House Delays New Tariffs
By MAIREAD MCARDLE } ~ After several weeks in which negotiations over a potential trade deal between the world’s two largest economies had stalled, Chinese and U.S. officials spoke over the phone Tuesday... with China’s Ministry of Commerce announcing afterward that the two powers plan to speak again in the coming weeks. “Both sides agree to talk again on the phone within two weeks,” the Ministry of Commerce said in a statement. Chinese vice premier Liu He spoke Tuesday night with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, according to the statement. They were joined by Chinese commerce minister Zhong Shan and Central Bank governor Yi Gang. News of the reignited negotiations came as Lighthizer’s office announced the U.S. will delay a planned 10 percent tariff on $300 billion of Chinese imports. In May, the White House raised tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports from 10 percent to 25 percent, claiming Beijing had reneged on previously agreed terms of a trade deal. The U.S. also currently has a 25 percent tariff on $50 billion worth of Chinese high-tech products. China has hit back with tariffs of up to 25 percent on $60 billion worth of U.S. products.
China’s Infiltration of Universities 
Around The Globe
by John Glynn } ~ According to FireEye, a cybersecurity company headquartered in Milpitas, California, a group of state-sponsored hackers in China ran activities for personal gain... at the same time as undertaking spying operations for the Chinese government in 14 different countries. In a report released on Thursday, July 8th, the authors outlined the ways in which elite teams of Chinese government-backed hackers are using non-public malware typically reserved for espionage to make money through attacks on video game companies. Hackers have repeatedly gained access to game development environments, with a particular focus on in-game currency, according to the FireEye report. In one example, hackers successfully appropriated tens of millions of dollars of virtual currency and credited the loot to more than 1,000 accounts. As Josh Taylor at The Guardian notes, China’s “attention to video game companies could be seen as a precursor to espionage activity.” Then again, espionage is something at which the Chinese regime excels. Kathrine Hill at FT warns readers that China has sent “thousands of scientists affiliated with its armed forces to western universities — especially in countries that share intelligence with the US — and is building a web of research collaboration that could boost Beijing’s military technology development.” Over the past decade, roughly 2,500 researchers from Chinese military universities have spent time at universities in the west; many of these are informants hide their military affiliations. This is not conjecture. Researchers at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), a think-tank partly funded by Australia’s department of defense, have focused on members of the so-called “Five Eyes,” a group of countries with which the US exchanges intelligence and scientific findings. The “Five Eyes” include UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Interestingly, since 2013, researchers affiliated to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) have published more joint papers with scientists from the UK and the US than with those of any other country...  
Hong Kong International Airport seizure almost certainly means a Chinese military response
by Tom Rogan } ~ Beijing will regard protesters as crossing a red line in causing the suspension of flights at Hong Kong International Airport... In a limited but highly public manner, the function and power of the Chinese state has ground to a halt. President Xi Jinping and his minions believe that the current situation, one in which flights have been suspended for the past two days, cannot continue. That's not so much a result of the damage to Hong Kong's economy or the disruption these protests are causing to passengers. It's because the protests are visibly undercutting the Chinese Communist Party's supreme authority. For the standing committee in Beijing, that undercutting is utterly intolerable. This is not to say that China wants to use military force to crush the "Umbrella" protest movement. Beijing knows that the visual of Peoples Liberation Army soldiers bashing young protesters into submission would be disastrous for the regime's international reputation. It would be seen, possibly, as a second Tiananmen Square atrocity. While vicious authoritarianism is the defining hallmark of the Chinese Communist Party, Beijing needs to provide a credible pretense to the contrary. That pretense is crucial if Xi is to succeed in expanding his Belt and Road economic initiative. Ultimately designed to supplant the U.S.-led democratic international order, Belt and Road involves generous Chinese investments abroad in return for Chinese market dominance and feudal political fealty. But for the Chinese communists, no concern matters nearly as much as the well understood supremacy of the state's authority. The principle must be enshrined, Beijing believes, in order to prevent any future resistance against the state. Hence why Beijing's escalating threats to use force in Hong Kong cannot be discounted. If protesters continue to shut down Hong Kong International Airport, Xi will deploy the military to crush them.  
No Longer Apathetic, 
Russia's Youth Join the Rallies
by ~ Russia's growing number of political rallies are drawing many young people who - until now - had largely ignored politics... VOA's Yulia Savchenko in Moscow says a lack of economic opportunities and - lately - images of police brutality against demonstrators are among the reasons why Russian youth are joining the rallies.  
Left Longs for Politically Induced Recession
Jordan Candler:  In June of last year, HBO’s Bill Maher asserted, “I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession, or you lose your democracy.” A few weeks ago, Maher again acknowledged, “I’ve been hoping for a recession. People hate me for it, but it would get rid of Trump, so you shouldn’t hate me for it. … It’s worth it.” On Friday, he admitted anew, “I’ve been rooting for a recession. … You should wish for a recession. ‘Cause that will definitely get [Trump] unelected. … We have survived many recessions. We can’t survive another Donald Trump term.”

So on at least three occasions now, Maher has clamored for more unemployment, more bankruptcies, lower wages, and deteriorating stock-market portfolios due to his animosity toward Trump. And if workers’ livelihoods must languish to purge Trump from office, then that’s a noble sacrifice in his warped mind. Of course, it’s easy for elitists like Maher to feel that way because they wouldn’t be significantly affected by a recession. Maher makes millions of dollars every year by giving his devoted audience ridiculous lectures on TV. But those of us he sees as deplorables are necessary collateral damage in a recession that will, the Left hopes, result in Trump being a one-term president.

The Media Research Center’s Brent Baker rightly responded, “Maher couldn’t have provided the people in ‘flyover country’ with a better example of the disdain for them from a coastal elite. Maher puts his personal hatred of President Trump ahead of the welfare of the American people. No wonder middle America has so embraced Trump as a fighter for them against the elites.”

No kidding. Sadly, even the leftmedia supports Maher’s sentiments. According to The Washington Free Beacon, “NBC News foreign correspondent Richard Engel … sided with … Maher after he expressed desire for an economic recession to help defeat President Donald Trump in 2020.” Engel went so far as to say, “Short-term pain might be better than long-term destruction of the Constitution.” Engel is what some would consider a “journalist.”

Late last year, our own Mark Alexander ominously wondered, “Will Democrats Get the Impeachment Recession They Want?” Alexander noted:

Caught in the Democrats’ political crossfire are tens of millions of American workers and their families whose jobs and income prospects will fall victim to the Demos’ politically induced recession — the direct result of having thrown economic confidence under the bus in order to attack Trump. May I remind you, there is precedent for Democrats seeding economic recession under sitting Republican presidents ahead of presidential elections. Recall how, in 2006, they set up the 2008 mortgage financial crisis (almost collapsing the entire banking system) just in time for Barack scumbag/liar-nObama to ride that wave of fear into office.

And make no mistake, the Leftmedia is doing its darnedest to make it happen, much to the joy of Bill Maher. According to Reuters, “‘Reasonably good’ is not what Trump promised to deliver during his 2016 campaign, and at this point he heads into a reelection year short of the key economic goals he set and worried a recession could undermine his bid for a second term.” In a piece titled “Is the economy turning against Trump?” Washington Post columnist Robert J. Samuelson surmises, “There is growing evidence of a possible recession. If one materializes, President Trump could lose his most powerful argument for reelection: a strong economy.” And just for good measure, The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake delved into “How a recession could doom Trump’s 2020 reelection.”

Memo to voters: If Democrats truly cared about your welfare, they wouldn’t be hankering for your livelihoods to crater for the sake of their political agenda.  ~The Patriot Post

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Zach Parkinson  

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
