DO WE REALLY NEED CHINA?
The big news around the globe as we go to press is the worldwide infection of people from the Wuhan Virus, although politically correct types are insisting we call it the “novel coronavirus Covid-19.” I prefer “China Virus.” It’s short, it’s sweet and it’s accurate. Since this pandemic is consuming the mainstream news cycle 24 hours a day, we thought we’d give you a short special report on pandemics so you could have some historical perspective.
The report is entitled Pandemics: How They’ve Changed the Course of History. It was written by TBR editor John Tiffany and used as a special insert in a recent issue of American Free Press (AFP) newspaper. So if you happen to be one of those TBR readers who receives AFP, feel free to pass the report on to a friend, whenever the government allows you to leave your house. (See our centerspread.) In this report, you will see not only how many plagues and pandemics have threatened human existence, and how fragile we are as a species, but also how resilient human beings truly are. What struck me is how many of these pandemics do in fact emerge from China.
Over there, millions of people are jammed shoulder-to-shoulder and they have a unique diet, being more than willing to eat soup made of multiple kinds of stuffed bats, appetizers made from pangolins (an armored creature somewhat akin to our armadillo), and delicacies made from multiple kinds of snakes including Chinese cobra, banded krait, the Indo-Chinese rat snake and the hundred-pace viper. The Chinese sell these animals in jam-packed communal markets, one cage stacked over the other, the caged animals defecating on the backs of the ones below. This is where most—but not all—experts believe the virus was formed.
The Red Chinese tried to cover this all up. As a result, our society is seriously disrupted, millions are out of work, our savings are drying up, those with investments are watching them dwindle and, worst of all, many thousands of people (generally those over the age of 65) are facing a life-threatening illness. (We want to hear your stories. Please write.) If only our leaders had listened for the past 25 years (at least) as we’ve warned that sending our jobs and factories to China and India was a horrendous mistake, this financial and health disaster might never have happened.
China now controls 95% of our pharmaceutical business, manufactures the vast majority of our medical supplies and also makes and assembles huge numbers of our technological devices. The fact is, we don’t need China to make our goods. We can—and should—do it here in America. President Trump looks like a sage. But is it finally clear to other U.S. leaders that nationalism is the best way forward? That corporate greed cannot be the overriding factor in international trade decisions? We sure hope so, but time will tell. Be safe.

PRISONER OF THE REDS: A JOURNALIST IN BOLSHEVIK RUSSIA

Francis McCullagh, a journalist and Royal Irish Fusilier captured by the Reds.
HENRY FORD: SMEARED PATRIOT
BY JOHN WEAR, J.D. Henry Ford is without doubt one of the most important figures in American history. A leading industrialist and visionary, the innovative businessman changed industrial production in America in profound ways. His politically incorrect, America-first political views and criticisms of international Jewry, eloquently reflected in his weekly newspaper The Dearborn Independent, have unjustly tarnished his reputation as a great American patriot.
THE URANIUM CLUB & THE TRUTH ABOUT GERMANY’S A-BOMB PROGRAM

Had the Germans had more time …
HITLER A ZIONIST STOOGE? DEBUNKING A NEVER-ENDING MYTH
BY JOHN FRIEND Once again the absurd notion that Adolf Hitler was a Zionist stooge or, even worse, an outright agent of international Bolshevism and Zionism is garnering attention in the alternative media. Hitler’s rise to power and his own words, actions and policies disprove such an asinine perspective, as TBR’s John Friend makes clear in this timely article.
A BRITISH SPYMASTER HELPS WIN THE ALLIED BATTLE FOR SICILY
BY JOHN TIFFANY Operation Mincemeat, the brainchild of Ian Fleming, a British intelligence officer who would go on to create the popular James Bond series, was a critical scheme in WWII that helped the Allies eventually defeat the Axis powers.

A TRUTHTELLER ON TRIAL: THE LIARS VS. THE LADY
BY PETER RUSHTON Lady Michele Renouf, a long-time champion of the Revisionist cause, is being persecuted in Germany for brief but powerful comments she made at a commemoration of the victims of the Allied firebombing of Dresden. Speaking the truth and defending the honor of innocent civilians is, sadly, a crime in much of Europe, especially Germany.
