On Tuesday’s broadcast of Bloomberg’s “Balance of Power,” Senate Homeland Security Committee Ranking Member Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) discussed a report from the committee’s minority staff finding that “For over a decade, China has engaged in a sustained malign influence and information theft campaign against the U.S. Federal Reserve,” and Fed Chair Jay Powell’s pushback against the report. Portman stated that the report is based on work done by the Federal Reserve itself, so “to the extent it’s being questioned, I guess I would say that the Fed is questioning its own report.”

It’s also based on some FBI reporting that we have had access to. So, to the extent it’s being questioned, I guess I would say that the Fed is questioning its own report. We’re simply summarizing that and talking about the very real issue out there. And I support Jay Powell. […]

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
