Tulsi Gabbard issues warning about potential war with Russia on Tucker Carlson (from YouTube transcription)
Note the language that this “will” happen:
Russia has thousands of nuclear weapons aimed towards us that could hit any town or city in America in less than 30 minutes and exact a cost upon every one of us that would result in excruciating death and suffering beyond comprehension. Hundreds of millions of people dying and suffering seeing their flesh being burned from from their bones – this is something that that that you know you can’t really even imagine uh and it’s a cost that that we will all pay.
Tucker congressman thanks so much for coming on so is this conflict moving toward war and are there leaders in this country who would like to see that do you think
Tulsi Gabbard it is moving in a very dangerous direction and the question for the american people is are we willing to go to war with russia on behalf of ukraine and we need to understand that such a war would come at a cost beyond anything that we can really imagine because this is not a war that that is just okay this is going to be something that’s happening to someone else somewhere else on the other side of the world no this is something that will directly impact me and you tucker every single one of your viewers and all of our loved ones and this is this is a war that is not a game it’s a war in which there are no winners because you’ve got you know thousands of nuclear weapons that the united states has aimed towards russia russia has thousands of nuclear weapons aimed towards us that could hit any town or city in america in less than 30 minutes and exact a cost upon every one of us that would result in excruciating death and suffering beyond comprehension hundreds of millions of people dying and suffering seeing their flesh being burned from from their bones this is something that that that you know you can’t really even imagine uh and it’s a cost that that we will all pay
Tucker Why in the world would we ever contemplate going to war with russia honestly
Tulsi Gabbard it is one that we should not do for those very reasons if you look at the the impacts of what a nuclear war brings it really brings about the end of the world as we know it and our leaders should understand this consequence and take it seriously and this is why president biden instead of continuing to escalate tensions and continuing this new cold war between the united states and russia he needs to de-escalate these tensions kind of you know to take the heat out of it and actually focus on bringing an end to this new cold war because if he doesn’t then it’s not a question of if we go to war with russia if this war ends up with it with a nuclear holocaust it really is then just a question of when and if we continue down this path that we are on it’s something that could happen a lot sooner than any of us think
Russian military vehicles with ‘invasion stripes’ descend on Ukraine border By Jesse O’NeillApril 15, 2021 | 12:28am | Updated Russian military vehicles with ‘invasion stripes’ descend on Ukraine border
More than 100,000 Russian troops in assault vehicles painted with “invasion stripes” were headed to Ukraine’s border Wednesday, intensifying fears of war between the neighboring nations.
The advancing force includes 1,300 battle tanks, 3,700 drones, 1,300 artillery and mortar units and 380 multiple launch rocket systems, according to documents leaked to the Daily Mirror.

Reuters Tensions between the countries have been escalating following Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea territory in 2014, an attempt by Moscow to keep NATO away from its borders. Ukraine is not a member of NATO, but support for the organization has risen in recent years, and the country is allied with many NATO nations — including the US.
Kyiv has claimed 14,000 people have died in the ongoing conflict, and many fear that Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that the COVID-19 pandemic is the right time to attack and control large parts of the country, according to the report.

Taiwan tells Biden emissaries it will counter China’s ‘adventurous manoeuvres’ with U.S Yimou Lee Thu, April 15, 2021, 12:47 PM·2 min read
TAIPEI (Reuters) – Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen told emissaries visiting at U.S. President Joe Biden’s request on Thursday that the island would work with the United States to deter threats from Chinese military activities.
Former senior U.S. officials, including former U.S. Senator Chris Dodd and former Deputy Secretaries of State Richard Armitage and James Steinberg, are visiting Taipei in a trip to signal Biden’s commitment to Taiwan and its democracy.
Tsai told the U.S. delegation in a meeting at the Presidential Office that Chinese military activities in the region have threatened regional peace and stability.
“We are very willing to work with like-minded countries, including the United States, to jointly safeguard the peace and stability of the Indo-Pacific and deter adventurous manoeuvres and provocations,” Tsai said.
She vowed to continue to cooperate with the United States to counter “cognitive warfare” and misinformation, but did not elaborate.
Dodd told Tsai the Biden administration would be Taiwan’s “reliable, trusted friend,” which will help the island expand its international space and support its investment in self defence.
He added the U.S. partnership with Taiwan is “stronger than ever” and that the visit was to reaffirm Biden’s commitment to the island.
Tsai also told the delegation that Taiwan looks forward to resuming trade talks with the United States as soon as possible. Taipei has long sought a free trade deal with Washington.
Dan Biers, director of the State Department’s Office of Taiwan Coordination, is also part of the delegation.
Taiwan is China’s most sensitive territorial issue and a major source of contention with Washington, which is required by U.S. law to provide the island with the means to defend itself.
Taiwan has complained over the last few months about almost daily missions by China’s air force near its air defence identification zone (ADIZ). Twenty-five Chinese aircraft, including fighters and nuclear-capable bombers, entered Taiwan’s ADIZ on Monday in the largest reported incursion to date.
China announced on Wednesday it would begin five days of live-fire drills off a part of its coast facing Taiwan, which Taiwan’s Defence Minister Chiu Kuo-cheng told reporters the country would pay close attention to.
“There’s some psychological impact, but don’t get too worked up about this. Everyone should have confidence in the armed forces,” he said.
Chiu will meet with the visiting Americans, his deputy Chang Che-ping told lawmakers.
The unofficial U.S. visit, which a White House official called a “personal signal” of the president’s commitment to Chinese-claimed Taiwan, is further straining Sino-U.S. relations.
China on Wednesday described its military exercises near Taiwan as “combat drills” and said the meeting of the U.S. officials with Tsai “will only exacerbate the tense situation in the Taiwan Strait”.

MYSTERY WIRE — Amazing images have been leaked from a secretive Pentagon investigation of UFOs.
The Task Force has been gathering evidence for a comprehensive report for Congress which is due in June that includes photographs and videos of UFO encounters with U.S. military assets, including Navy destroyers off the southern California coast.
Part of the report is to educate other military and intelligence officials about the nature of the UFO mystery.
The new images were gathered by the Task Force and obtained by investigative filmmaker Jeremy Corbell, who confirmed their authenticity. Mystery Wire has independently confirmed that the visual materials are included in the briefing presentation prepared by the UAP Task Force.Navy images showing trans-medium Sphere travel from the air to underwater. (Image sourced by @JeremyCorbell)Still images from video recorded by the U.S. Navy showing Pyramid shaped UAPs flying above the USS Russell. (Image sourced by @JeremyCorbell)
“This (video) was taken on deployment from the USS Russell,” Corbell said. “It shows what they described as vehicles. And they made a great distinction. They made sure in this classified briefing, they made a great distinction that this is not something that we own either a black project, this is not something of a foreign military, that these were behaving in ways that we did not expect. And that they were you know shaped non aerodynamically. Like pyramids, these are flying pyramids!”
The video is one of several forms of visual evidence gathered by the UAP Task Force to document bizarre encounters reported by the U.S. Navy during the past two years, including photos of three stationary drones of unknown origin, reported earlier this week.
This is a developing story. Mystery Wire will update this story as needed.

There are 10 new ideas that are changing America, maybe permanently.
1) Money is a construct. It can be created from thin air. Annual deficits and aggregate national debt no longer matter much.
Prior presidents ran up huge annual deficits, but at least there were some concessions that the money was real and had to be paid back. Not now. As we near $30 trillion in national debt and 110 percent of annual GDP, our elites either believe permanent zero interest rates make the cascading obligation irrelevant, or the larger the debt, the more likely we will be forced to address needed income redistribution.
2) Laws are not necessarily binding anymore. Joe Biden took an oath to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” But he has willfully rendered federal immigration laws null and void. Some rioters are prosecuted for violating federal laws, others not so much. Arrests, prosecutions, and trials are all fluid. Ideology governs when a law is still considered a law.
Crime rates do not necessarily matter. If someone is carjacked, assaulted, or shot, it can be understood to be as much the victim’s fault as the perpetrator’s. Either the victim was too lax, uncaring, and insensitive, or he provoked his attacker. How useful the crime is to the larger agendas of the left determines whether a victim is really a victim, and the victimizer really a victimizer.
3) Racialism is now acceptable. We are defined first by our ethnicity or religion, and only secondarily—if at all—by an American commonality. The explicit exclusion of whites from college dorms, safe spaces, and federal aid programs is now noncontroversial. It is unspoken payback for perceived past sins, or a type of “good” racism. Falsely being called a racist makes one more guilty than falsely calling someone else a racist.
4) The immigrant is mostly preferable to the citizen. The newcomer, unlike the host, is not stained by the sins of America’s founding and history. Most citizens currently must follow quarantine rules and social distancing, stay out of school and obey all the laws.
Yet those entering the United States illegally need not follow such apparently superfluous COVID-19 rules. Their children should be immediately schooled without worry of quarantine. Immigrants need not worry about their illegal entry or residence in America. Our elites believe illegal entrants more closely resemble the “founders” than do legal citizens, about half of whom they consider irredeemable.
5) Most Americans should be treated as we would treat little children. They cannot be asked to provide an ID to vote. “Noble lies” by our elites about COVID-19 rules are necessary to protect “Neanderthals” from themselves.
Americans deserve relief from the stress of grades, standardized testing, and normative rules of school behavior. They still are clueless about why it is good for them to pay far more for their gasoline, heating, and air conditioning.
6) Hypocrisy is passé. Virtue-signaling is alive. Climate change activists fly on private jets. Social justice warriors live in gated communities. Multibillionaire elitists pose as victims of sexism, racism, and homophobia. The elite need these exemptions to help the helpless. It is what you say to lesser others about how to live, not how you yourself live, that matters.
7) Ignoring or perpetuating homelessness is preferable to ending it. It is more humane to let thousands of homeless people live, eat, defecate, and use drugs on public streets and sidewalks than it is to green-light affordable housing, mandate hospitalization for the mentally ill, and create sufficient public shelter areas.
8) McCarthyism is good. Destroying lives and careers for incorrect thoughts saves more lives and careers. Cancel culture and the Twitter Reign of Terror provide needed deterrence.
Now that Americans know they are one wrong word, act, or look away from losing their livelihoods, they are more careful and will behave in a more enlightened fashion. The social media guillotine is the humane, scientific tool of the woke.
9) Ignorance is preferable to knowledge. Neither statue-toppling, nor name-changing, nor the 1619 Project require any evidence or historical knowledge. Heroes of the past were simple constructs. Undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees reflect credentials, not knowledge. The brand, not what created it, is all that matters.
10) Wokeness is the new religion, growing faster and larger than Christianity. Its priesthood outnumbers the clergy and exercises far more power. Silicon Valley is the new Vatican, and Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Twitter are the new gospels.
Americans privately fear these rules, while publicly appearing to accept them. They still could be transitory and invite a reaction. Or they are already near-permanent and institutionalized.
The answer determines whether a constitutional republic continues as once envisioned, or warps into something never imagined by those who created it.
Rapper Montero Hall, known publicly as Lil Nas X, skyrocketed to fame in 2029 with his song “Old Town Road” and has remained in the public attention since then. The rapper, who is an open homosexual and has made videos with blatantly occult themes, now is releasing a limited line of ‘satan shoes’, which claim to have human blood in them and are limited to 666 pairs.
Lil Nas X is reportedly all set to release a pair of exclusive “Satan-themed shoes,” and fans can’t seem to quite wrap their heads around this peculiar development.
Just a day after his Montero “Call Me By Your Name” music video took the internet by storm, Montero Lamar Hill, aka Lil Nas X, found himself on the Twitter trending page yet again, after his latest collaboration with retail start-up MSCHF surfaced online:
A limited edition collab, the Nike-style shoes have been modeled on the lines of the popular Air Max ‘ 97 and are priced at a steep $1,018.
If the association with Satan wasn’t already established enough, what’s interesting to note is that there are reportedly 666 pairs that have been manufactured, with each pair bearing a message from Luke 10: 18 of The Bible which reads:
“I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.”
However, the most sinister reveal lies in the soles of the pair, which are reportedly filled with 66cc of red ink and “one drop of human blood”.
In light of this unconventional collaboration, Twitter was soon abuzz with a slew of reactions. (source)
One can see the website for the shoe release here. It’s openly satanic, and there is no hiding what he is saying. The number ‘666’ on the shoe, the black color, the giant bronze pentagram on the front, the clear red liquid in the shoe bottom, make it very clear that nothing good is associated with these shoes. Likewise, the newest video from this rapper, released at the same time as his shoes (which one can look up on his own) shows the rapper in a variety of sodomitic and demonic scenes until at the end, the rapper dies and slides down a stripper pole into hell where she twerks on and simulates being sodomized by the devil before killing him and taking his place.
However, what one should be concerned about is not merely the satanic imagery. In fact, that might be considered at best a secondary concern. Yet what could be worse that the obvious?
What is worse is that Nike is the one who manufactured these shoes.
The rapper did not make these shoes. It is doubtful he would know the first thing to do. He certainly supports the concept, and is clearly one who supports evil things, but he ultimately is just a useful food, a willing pawn, one who cares more about power and influence than about truth or moral right. What is more disturbing are the actions of Nike, because the corporation is the one- and not just “the company”, but the specific individuals in R&D, marketing, customer service, and leadership -who supported, created, engineered, marketed, and are profiting from the sale of these shoes.
The real blame is more with Nike. Nike did not have to market these shoes. Nobody forced them to do this. This is an action made by their free choice. It is also unlikely they are making much money from these shoes anyways, but rather are profiting off of promoting satanism. This is the real commodity, not the shoes being marketed to people.
No amount of ‘activism’ is likely to stop these people at this point, because the reason that Nike is able to market such shoes is because, clearly, they believe they have enough popular support to be able to sell these shoes without too much open backlash that threatens their bottom line.
Companies and even government do not care about the backlash, because it has no real effect on their ability to do business, for that is the only kind that they care about.
The country is changing. This isn’t about rap, or any one particular kind of music, but that open demon worship is now being accepted in society, and the marketing of this stuff is the proof of it.
Likewise, ask yourself, what has the ‘conservative’ movement done to stop this? The conservative movement has not conserved anything, except for putting a temporary hold on the status quo.
What one is looking at here is a view of the future with these shoes.
It gives me no joy to say that the Christians have lost the culture wars, because the consequences are going to be serious. Christianity is no longer a ‘profitable’ thing, but rather, anti-Christian causes have become popular, and even arguably profitable to promote. This is just part of the result here, and it is not going to get better, for this is just the obvious. It is often the less obvious things- such as the public embrace and defining of the culture by the sins which cry out for divine vengeance, and punishing those who stand against them -that are more serious, as their end result is thing such as the above.
If it took thirty years- 1987 to 2017 -for the US to completely embrace sodom, what will the US look like if patterns do not stop in 2047?
Based on my own experience, as well as some ideas I would really like to apply, I have compiled a list of suggestions that can serve the purpose of greatly irritating the enemy and remaining in the light of grace of our Lord and Saviour.
1. Memorise biblical verses of protection. Some particularly useful ones include:
The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (2 Timothy 4:18)
But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. (2 Thessalonians 3:3)
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. (Psalm 46:1-3)
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. (Psalm 121:7l
2. Develop a Christian phrase that can be repeated regularly. My favourites are:
Jesus saves me. (This cannot be refuted as it is a timeless present tense for “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13))
I am for Jesus. (This is a double edged sword against darkness for it indicates that your will is aligned towards Jesus. It also shows that you belong to God. Very effective.)
3. Prayer to be almost constantly on your lips or in your mind.
The Lord’s Prayer.
Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.
St Patrick’s Breastplate (partial)
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
4. Play hymns, prayers or an audio-bible on multiple devices in many rooms. This will certainly irk any unwelcome entity, particularly if you leave it on a constant, low volume if you need to have a break. A choice selection includes:
With glee I seek to irritate the enemy, in the hope to make the home environment as uncomfortable as possible for it to ever reside within. But I do so under the protection of Christ and without hatred.
A horrified grandma has captured an image of “a demon” standing over her grandchild’s bed after setting up a camera in the infant girl’s room because she was heard telling someone to “go away” in the night.
And the newspaper said one consultant to the agency has briefed US Defense Department officials of some highly unusual discoveries ― including items retrieved from “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.”
The Times said that while the Pentagon has claimed that it disbanded its UFO office, that department has in reality simply changed names and moved, and a US Senate committee report suggests it will be expected to make some information public every six months.
The main goal isn’t alien spaceships, but rather something much closer to home: to see if confounding sightings ― including some by the military ― are actually advanced technology from rival nations.
The Times report also hints at possible artifacts from UFO crashes, citing former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
“After looking into this, I came to the conclusion that there were reports — some were substantive, some not so substantive — that there were actual materials that the government and the private sector had in their possession,” he told the newspaper.
Astrophysicist Eric W. Davis, who has been a subcontractor and consultant for the Pentagon, told the newspaper he briefed the Defense Department in March about the “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.”
He said he has examined some of the materials and concluded “we couldn’t make it ourselves.”
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) also indicated that he was concerned that supposed UFOs could be advanced tech from foreign nations.
“We have things flying over our military bases and places where we’re conducting military exercises, and we don’t know what it is, and it isn’t ours,” Rubio, who is acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CBS4 in Miami last week.
“I would say that, frankly, that if it’s something from outside this planet, that might actually be better than the fact that we’ve seen some technological leap on behalf of the Chinese or the Russians or some other adversary that allows them to conduct this sort of activity.”
He said the objects in these sightings “exhibit, potentially, technologies that you don’t have at your own disposal” making them a national security risk.
The military’s encounters with possible UFOs have come under intense interest in recent years since several videos were leaked in 2017 showing encounters with fast-moving objects including one given the nickname “Tic Tac” because it looked like one of the candies.
This object, still not publicly identified, dropped from 60,000 feet to just 50 feet in a matter of seconds:
The Navy told UFO researcher Christian Lambright in a Freedom of Information Act request that that releasing more information “would cause exceptionally grave damage to the National Security of the United States.”
To The Stars Academy, a company cofounded by former Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge which has worked to reveal UFO information and helped expose the 2017 videos, celebrated the newest developments.
“TTSA welcomes the increase in transparency and is steadfast in our mission to educate policy makers and support continued interest and engagement on this topic,” the organization said via Facebook.
In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media. In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness.
These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent. On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven. On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of temporal well-being will one day – if they do not repent – yield to the terrible fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation.
In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans. They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially concealed their true intentions. The investigations already under way will reveal the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid emergency not only in the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the governments of nations.
We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.
Although it may seem disconcerting, the opposing alignments I have described are also found in religious circles. There are faithful Shepherds who care for the flock of Christ, but there are also mercenary infidels who seek to scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves. It is not surprising that these mercenaries are allies of the children of darkness and hate the children of light: just as there is a deep state, there is also a deep church that betrays its duties and forswears its proper commitments before God. Thus the Invisible Enemy, whom good rulers fight against in public affairs, is also fought against by good shepherds in the ecclesiastical sphere. It is a spiritual battle, which I spoke about in my recent Appeal which was published on May 8.
For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons.
For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction. And it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.
The American people are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters. However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you, the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy? Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it is: an infernal deception.
Mr. President, my prayer is constantly turned to the beloved American nation, where I had the privilege and honor of being sent by Pope Benedict XVI as Apostolic Nuncio. In this dramatic and decisive hour for all of humanity, I am praying for you and also for all those who are at your side in the government of the United States. I trust that the American people are united with me and you in prayer to Almighty God.
United against the Invisible Enemy of all humanity, I bless you and the First Lady, the beloved American nation, and all men and women of good will.

‘The battle is on’: China warns it will no longer be ‘intimidated’ by the US
China’s state media has warned that the “battle is on”, as tensions with western nations continue to grow during the coronavirus pandemic.news.com.auMAY 28, 20209:30P
China hits back at Australia with crippling trade tariffs as tensions heat up over Coronavirus investigation.
China’s state media has warned that the “battle is on” with the United States, as tensions with the West continue to grow amid the coronavirus pandemic.
An editorial in the state-run Global Times newspaper accused the Trump administration of “seizing China by the throat”, saying the rising superpower is “prepared to engage in a long-term battle with the US”.
It comes after Donald Trump announced earlier this week that the US would work on a response to China’s planned national security legislation for Hong Kong.
“Since China is determined to push forward the national security legislation for Hong Kong, it has been prepared for any possible reaction from the US,” the editorial said.
“Many Chinese people have realised that some US politicians are seizing China by its throat. A long-term rivalry between China and the US is inevitable. In the face of US aggression, China should adopt a calm mentality and be prepared to engage in a long-term battle with the US.”

Beijing warned the US would “suffer the most” if a financial trade war between the two countries were to grow.
“If a financial war spirals out of control, it is the US that will suffer the most. With its real economy shrinking, the US economy is largely relying on the financial sector, which means launching a financial war equals self-harm.
“The Chinese people are pragmatic and hardworking. We have constructed a comprehensive manufacturing system and built the technological ability to make breakthroughs. We also have a vast market. Hardly can such a country be isolated and contained.”
It went on to say China is ready for “battle” over the Hong Kong issue.
“The China-US ‘battle’ over Hong Kong is on. The US is free to play any cards in its hand. Hong Kong is under China’s sovereignty, and whatever act Washington passes is just wastepaper.
“Amid the long-term competition with the US, one of the most important tasks for China is to build up its internal vitality. We have sufficient means to resist external blows, while internal flexibility and vitality are sources of subsequent stamina. In the end, China is competing with itself.”

Over the weekend, thousands of demonstrators in Hong Kong took to the streets over a controversial new security law put forward by the Chinese government.
The law will allow Chinese national security agencies to deploy in the semi-autonomous territory for the first time, in line with the Chinese Communist Party’s aim to bring Hong Kong more under its control.
Earlier this week, the Trump administration warned that the US would likely impose sanctions on China if the law were to pass.
China has repeatedly threatened the US in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier this week, China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, warned that members of the Trump administration “are taking China-US relations hostage and pushing our two countries to the brink of a new cold war”.
“This dangerous attempt to turn back the will of history will undo the fruits of decades-long China-US co-operation, dampen America’s own development prospects, and put world stability and prosperity in jeopardy,” he said.
The debate over trade has intensified as the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic becomes more pronounced.
The US, which today surpassed 100,000 COVID-19 deaths, is trying to pin the blame on the Chinese Communist Party, while Beijing says the Trump administration is trying to keep it from becoming a global power.
