Biden’s ‘woke’ green energy is a joke that makes us dependent on China
If there is any hope, it’s that voters are rejecting woke green goals. Already this has occurred in Sweden and Italy, where voters threw out left-wing governments in part out of a rebuke of the policies that created the energy crisis. And Britain’s new Prime Minister, Liz Truss, announced that she would lift a ban on fracking, approve new oil and gas drilling in the North Sea and launch “Great British Nuclear” to generate 25% of Britain’s electricity from nuclear power by 2050.

The problems that confront today’s leaders are substantial and diverse: how to protect a nation’s most critical infrastructure from cyberattack; how to organize, train, and equip a military force
to prevail in the event of future conflict in cyberspace; how to deter nation-state
and terrorist adversaries from conducting attacks in cyberspace; how to control

110 OVERSEAS Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild
This campaign, which started on a humble scale in 2018, has developed alongside the establishment of overseas Chinese police “service stations”, sometimes called “110 Overseas” after the national police emergency phone number, now found in dozens of countries across five continents.
