El Salvador, for which we fought so hard in the 1980s, has just been taken over in a coup backed by Communist China and Qatar.

This shows the scope of the total collapse of US strategy and diplomacy in the Western Hemisphere.
President Nayib Bukele, democratically elected, has control of the national legislature and just illegally fired the entire supreme court and removed their personal security. With backing from China and Qatar, he has staged a judicial coup d'etat to take dictatorial control.
Bukele is in the pocket of Qatar, which seeks El Salvador as a trophy for the country's Christian name (Republic of the Savior). Beijing got the previous Salvadoran government to de-recognize Taiwan for a pittance and just began paying off Bukele's team.

TSA has integrated CCP-style face recognition systems as a requirement for Americans to travel abroad.
This is tied into a CDC application that now tracks people by their phone numbers through registering for a Chinese Virus test or vaccine. The tracking is global, according to American citizens abroad who have been getting CDC notices on their phones indicating their travel.
Someone at a major airline just re-confirmed this to me, and says that TSA now has covert face-recognition cameras throughout certain American airports. Caution: Even though this source is in a position to know, this item is from a single source only.

@daniel_bilar Here's one from 1995. It refers to a silo-based ICBM and other programs. There was NO mainstream media or political interest in this at the time - to raise it was to be accused of opposing "Russian reform" and - yes - of being a "Russophobe." jmichaelwaller.com/wp-content/upl…
@daniel_bilar I wrote this one for Reader's Digest in 1996. This one refers to Topol-M. The Clinton State Department and DoD got very upset - not at the Kremlin, but at me. jmichaelwaller.com/wp-content/upl…
@daniel_bilar More on US funding of the Topol-M and other systems in 1998. (Separately: A tranche of IMF cash was used to pay for construction of the first Borei-class submarine at that same period.) jmichaelwaller.com/1998/12/15/fro…

Now would be a good time for lawmakers to ask FBI Director Wray about the Bureau’s metrics in assessing and responding to left-wing violence vs right-wing violence.
Those metrics would show how politically biased the FBI has become, and how dangerous this is not merely to public confidence in the Bureau, but to the safety of our country.
Lawmakers should ask the FBI how it reacted to protests and violence from the Left and from the Right. FBI should describe the investigative techniques used, what internal classifications the FBI assigned to its investigations (domestic terrorism, criminal, etc.)...

The @CapitolPolice Inspector General has made devastating findings about the intelligence capabilities of the force.

These findings matter, not only to protect the Capitol, but because the progs are using the Jan 6 attack as an excuse to build a huge domestic spying capability.
2) @CapitolPolice IG: "We also identified intelligence related deficiencies with the Department’s organizational structure, training, professional standards, internal controls, and capability to effectively collect, process, and disseminate intelligence information.”
3) "Despite the inspector general’s findings, Capitol Police officials have defended their intelligence operations at public hearings," @rollcall reports. Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman oversaw the Intelligence & Interagency Coordination Division. She is inept and has to go.

Those of us who reported this at the time were called liars, seditionists, and traitors. @FDRLST thefederalist.com/2021/01/14/i-s…
1) Excerpts from my eyewitness account from the West Front of the Capitol on January 6, published in @FDRLST on January 14. They comport with many of the @CapitolPolice IG's findings:

"Capitol Police anti-riot unit prepared early, but presence was light."
2) "When we crossed First Street NW to enter the Capitol grounds where the Capitol Police had jurisdiction, I noticed no police at all."

"that appearance of low threat level made no sense. . . .  no Capitol Police appeared anywhere from what we could see . . . ."

Georgetown University "educates" more of our diplomats, intelligence officers and analysts, and other national security professionals than just about any place around. Here's a look at who's teaching them. quillette.com/2021/04/09/geo…
To my Chinese friends - I didn't have space to include the fact that @Georgetown is heavily dependent on cash from Chinese Communist Party-related sources.
Georgetown Law Professor Lama Abu Odeh, of the "Gender Justice Initiative," makes important comments in her "Georgetown's Cultural Revolution" article.

Contemplate how terrible things are at @Georgetown when people like Professor Odeh speak out. genderjustice.georgetown.edu/lama-abu-odeh/#
