iPhone : Canada's court decision on extraditing Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou to the US is exactly right. Huawei is a threat to US & Canada. We must stand with Canada against Chinese intimidation, as China did last year in seizing Canadian citizens after Meng's arrest politico.com/news/2020/05/2…

iPhone : "It's our destiny to be a space-faring nation." - Gene Cernan. Godspeed to the crew of @spacex Demo 2 as @nasa returns to flight from American soil. We pray for a successful mission & safe return. May this be the first of many missions to low earth orbit & beyond.

iPhone : This Memorial Day, we honor the more than 1 million Americans who died serving our country, their commitment to freedom, & the heroism we witness today as our nation fights a deadly pandemic. I am grateful for all those who volunteer to serve & protect our way of life.

iPhone : We should all be troubled by renewed meddling by China, Russia, Cuba & Iran in Venezuela. Iranian shipments of gas to bailout Maduro's failing govt are dangerous for both the US and all S. American nations. We stand with Juan Guaidó in opposing Iranian influence.

iPhone : China continues to use the global pandemic it caused as cover for a crackdown against opponents of the Communist Party. Hong Kong is next to pay the price. The US must impose sanctions against Chinese officials, banks & business that enforce any new crackdown laws.

iPhone : Congratulations to Tsai 蔡英文 Tsai Ing-wen as she begins her second term as President of Taiwan. While facing daily threats from China & exclusion from the WHO, Taiwan's model response to covid19 stands as an example to the world. Now is the time to build closer ties with Taipei.

iPhone : In defiance of US maximum pressure campaigns, Iran is bailing out Venezuela by dispatching five large oil tankers to relieve Maduro's gas shortage. Iran's attempt to oppose US priorities must be met with resolve. China, Iran and Venezuela cannot succeed miamiherald.com/article2427983…

iPhone : Today's meeting of World Health Organization (WHO) further highlights China's insincerity & its destructive impact on the global pandemic response. The continued embarrassing exclusion of Taiwan is unacceptable & strong evidence of China's malign influence. Taipei deserves better reuters.com/article/us-hea…

iPhone : Maduro's illegitimate regime receives assistance from China and Iran to repair Venezuela's damaged oil refineries. Make no mistake, China and Iran are in deep cooperation to prop-up failing Maduro and embarrass the United States. argusmedia.com/en/news/210387…

iPhone : It's foolish for the US to solely rely on China for critical components of electronics & defense projects that use rare earth metals. These are key strategic resources. I support Ted Cruz & his legislation to shift US sources away from China bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Twitter Web App : The damage caused by China to the U.S. as a result of the pandemic is incalculable. In a talk with Shurat HaDin - שורת הדין, I examine the larger strategic context, how our economic relationship must change, & the need for a fundamental pivot in the way we view China youtu.be/ZSK1SFAYfec?t=…

iPhone : Congressional Democrats are complaining about the loosening of Obama-era restrictions on antipersonnel landmines. The Administration should not back down, and where necessary even do more with landmines to protect our troops and our allies!

iPhone : Today marks the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe. Long live the cause of freedom! It is also a timely and powerful reminder of what is possible when we apply the overwhelming strength of the United States.

iPhone : Important read. Slowly, the governments of the world are reaching the same conclusion - China intentionally hid evidence of the pandemic by silencing of doctors, destruction of evidence, and a refusal to provide samples to scientists working on a vaccine foxnews.com/politics/five-…

iPhone : To this day, the significant foreign military presence in Venezuela denies the will of the people. The strongest possible sanctions must remain until the peaceful transition of power & Juan Guaidó, Venezuela's rightful interim President & the Venezuelan people are firmly in control

iPhone : In his desperation to hide the truth, Maduro cut the transmission of open broadcasters, turned off community radio stations, & blocked Internet access. The illegitimate Maduro regime relies on Cuba’s playbook of repression and torture to survive.

iPhone : We must all reject the forces of communism and socialism around the world -- especially in this hemisphere. Left unchecked, more nations face the dangers of domination and suppression. observer.com/2019/04/john-b…
